Description

Pretty is a very good work to describe this young woman. While not nearly as long as it once was, her earlobe-length hair of silky tresses of deep, rich brown hair fall to just below her shoulder blades. Though for the most part her hair is straight, the last several inches turn almost curly. Her eyes, a rich almost golden brown, sit between a slightly upturned nose. While high cheekbones are striking, they often appear diminished when Vashae's hair reaches past her chin. Her full lips are often tilted into a look of concentration or a smile. It is her eyes that are her greatest expressive weapon, however, showing or hiding emotion even quicker than the lips upon her face.

The Turns since Impression have further toned and defined Vashae's body, making her a fit figure able to perform her duties with ease. Gone are the days when she could have been called anything but fit. Long limbed, ample but not overlarge breasts, and just curvy enough to entice a wandering eye, Vashae stands at about 5'7.

Her left shoulder and upper arm have a healed severe Threadscore.

Vashae wears a sturdy set of riding leathers, tinged one of the many shades of blue of Jovianth's hide. A pair of boots adorn her feet as well. A trio of more permanent fixtures to her person bear note as well. A pendant necklace on a chain, a silver bracelet, and a scarf. The pendant itself is diamond in shape wrought in blackened silver. It's slightly larger than a mark, and within the darkly gleaming border is the painstakingly shaped silhouette of a dragon in flight. To either side of the dragon, a striking, pearlescent shell is inlaid, half blue and half purple. The bracelet is of flattened silver links, every other one set with a tiny, almost luminous stone of blue or green, and fits her wrist almost perfectly. The scarf is a lovely hue of blue, with the Arroyo patch right above the fringe. It is worn a variety of ways, depending on her current activities. A gold firelizard is perched on her shoulder.

The knot upon this bluerider's shoulder is that of a Wingrider of Arroyo Wing, and a ribbon of blue threaded through the knot denotes her as rider of blue Jovianth.

She is a young adult of about 26. She is awake and looks alert.


Man Out of Time Blue Jovianth

Something ancient lies embodied within the long, lithe lines of this cheeky chap, old and new commingled over his timeless hide. Borrowed from the star-struck sky is the bluest blue that has ever been or will ever be: weathered midnight worn without artifice over all his planes and angles, holding dominion over every dimension of his form. Indelible azure lightens the farthest-flung reaches of his physique, highlighting headknobs and polishing sails and spars with sunlit hue. Argent flashes of hidden circles beneath the canopy of his wings match the star-stippling along the enduring length of his tail. Tip to tail he remains a conundrum, a paradox of silver flash and night-sky blue, secrets of the cosmos veiled in timeworn hide and youthful wonder.
He has a healed semi-severe Threadscore to his wingsail.
Jovianth is 7 Turns, 6 months, and 1 day old.
He is 50 feet (16m) long, with a wingspan of 83 feet (27m) and a shoulder height of 12 feet (4m).

Common Knowledge

Vashaetria joined the Healercraft after losing most of her family to the plague.

She is often seen with her Listening Tube, almost as if she simply…forgets to take it off when she's not on duty.

It's believed she was Searched to prove a Point…which was then proven when she Impressed.

Vash is known to be typically pretty easy going.

Vashae was one of the only members of her group of friends to Impress blue.

She was the leader of the Weyrlings the day the wing of them disappeared.

At their graduation to Senior Weyrlinghood, she was promoted to Wingsecond.

She was tapped into Parhelion upon graduating from Weyrlinghood….and then kidnapped into Arroyo. It may have had something to do with who lured her into the wing.

Vashae and N'cal are now officially an item.


Relationships

Vashae's family was all deceased long before she went forward in time to Nowtime, but she had had five siblings, and her father was Kaher, her mother was Rehea, and her aunt was Valara.

For a long time, Vashaetria apprenticed under Feshara, a healer whose specialty was midwifery. When the Comet began hitting Pern, Feshara ordered Vash to go with those jumping forward.

Syteran was the Senior Journeyman Healer she has had the most interactions with, and she respects him a good deal.

Khaida is someone she really only met once arriving at Igen Weyr, but she thinks of the young Healer Apprentice as precocious, and is fond of her.

I'yn is someone who she thinks of as a real friend, both in part for their having been Senior Apprentices in the Healercraft at the same time and at some of the same places, but also because he's just always been pretty nice. She had a crush on him at one point, but now just thinks of him as a friend and clutchsib.

Former harper Kyara is absolutely considered a friend, and although they're no longer in the same wing, their experiences together both as Candidates and then as Weyrlings have definitely drawn the two close. Jovianth won Liareth's maiden flight.

When it comes to We'bey, Vashae…isn't always sure what to think. He comes off rather nice, and she likes to think of him as a friend.

Samakar is the only Nowtimer woman Vashae really knows by name, but she does consider the other a friend!

Trek is her current Wingleader, and she does respect the woman for being the only female wingleader of a fighting wing.

N'cal is the one who talked Vashae into moving to Arroyo, after a few turns

N'thu, former Wingleader, former Weyrleader. She respects him, as much as one can, really.

She had dubious respect for W'rin. The bluerider tried to have as little to do with him as possible, just to avoid his angrier sides. Vashae wasn't quite sure how to feel when he died, except for a piece mad, and a piece angry.

K'vvan was a wingsecond for her wing for a while. Vashae was Searched to prove a point to him; since then, she's gained some respect for him…especially since he moved to Southern to help out (she assumes) with the children he fathered.

Zeyta is a hard woman to understand, but the woman has gained Vashae's grudging respect since she took over control of the wing.

Selaine was a good choice for Arroyo's second Wingsecond, Vashae thought, at least until the other woman got transferred. What is it with Arroyo's wingseconds and getting transferred!?

Tija is one of Vashae's clutchmates. An interesting woman, if a bit…odd. Unique, to say the least.


History

Born to the pairing of a Herder and a cotholder, Vashaetria was the third of what would eventually become six children. Though she was her parent's first daughter, she went without being spoiled. As soon as she was old enough to work, her father put her to work with her two elder brothers with the herdbeasts. Vashae was thrilled to get to work with her brothers; they were only slightly less happy to have a small packmule in the form of a sister along. By this time, baby number five was on the way; baby number four had been another boy.

When the fifth baby came, the sixth immediately followed, a twin. The births left their mother weakened and ill, and so Kaher sent for his sister to come stay with them for a time. Rehea's acceptance of her husband's decision was immediate; and as soon as Valara arrived, Vashaetria's work with the herdbeasts ceased. Valara, with her brother's permission, taught the children their letters, figures, and other simple things. It was something new, and for a while, even exciting!

When the plague found her family, Vashaetria had been with her aunt on an errand in Bendan Hold and were delayed because of quarantine. They returned home to find that while they had survived: the rest of their family had not. With no reason to stay, the aunt took her home with her. Vashae stayed with her aunt's family, thankful to be alive - and sorrowful that she had survived at the same time. The experience of losing her family left a profound mark on her despite not having been there when they died, and as soon as her fourteenth turnday came 'round, she left to join the Healercraft.

Since then, Vashaetria was an Apprentice - and eventually, Senior Apprentice - with the craft. Once she gained her senior apprenticeship, she requested to be posted under Healer Journeyman Feshara, whose specialty was midwifery. Since then, the young woman has tried to make as few ripples as possible.

The decision to jump forward was not an easy one for her - in fact, she barely made the choice at all: her mentor shoved a pack with the most important of the Senior Apprentices things in it, and pushed her at a dragonrider willing to take the girl, the day the comet hit, and told her to go. Vashaetria went, but with plenty of regrets of feeling like she essentially abandoned her mentor. She is more or less fitting it at Igen Weyr, even working in the Infirmary.

However, her attempts to make few ripples have not…gone well. Vashaetria was Searched by brownrider Teya seemingly to prove a point to greenrider K'vvan. She accepted, of course, but was known to say, "a stick of mud has more chance of Impressing than I," to some of her fellow Healers.

Boy was she surprised when the time for the Hatching came! Vashae put on her robe and sandals dutifully, and went out upon those hot Sands with the rest. She was almost relieved (and of course a bit disappointed) when all of her friends kept Impressing, and then it was only Samakar and she of their group of friends left on the Sands…and then he came. Man Out Of Time Blue Jovianth. He chose her, and Vashae name and life changed forever.

For a while she flew with Parhelion, now she's found a home in Arroyo. While time wears between when she sees most of her clutchmates anymore, she still tries to keep in touch with the circle she was most involved with. Other concerns and interests have attracted her attention as well, however, though time will tell how all of that turns out.
