Sae_1.jpg

Name Inspiration

Say it with us: SAY-tier-oith. It’s not too much of a mouthful. We hope. It was Satyr inspired, Satyroi to be precise. :)

Sae_2.jpg

THE SATYROI (Satyrs) were rustic fertility spirits of the countryside and wilds. They consorted with the Nymphai(Nymphs) and were companions of the gods Dionysus, Hermes, Hephaistos, Pan, Rhea-Kybele and Gaia.
Satyroi were depicted as animalistic men with asinine ears, pug noses, reclining hairlines, the tails of horses and erect members. As companions of Dionysus they were usually shown drinking, dancing, playing flutes and sporting with the Mainades (Maenads).
Some of the more specific types of Satyroi were the Panes (goat-legged satyrs), Seilenoi (Silens) (elderly satyrs), Satyriskoi (Satyrisci) (child satyrs), and Tityroi(flute-playing satyrs).

Clutching Pose

A grin spreads over Amani's face upon seeing M'noq, because let's be honest, bedhead is entertaining for a few reasons. And endearing, on some. "She timed it perfectly," she agrees drowsily, giving the brownrider a quick hug before trying in vain to pat down some of his hair. "Which is what she intended all along, of course." No one had better suggest it wasn't as simple as that, of course. The goldrider watches intently now as Zymuraith wanders her hefty form around the Sands in a very calculated circle, coming right to the center of the space…and then measuring out seven strides to the west, stopping, and beginning to scoop out some little niches. The digging takes no time at all…and she wastes none in filling them! - from A Clutch of Contrasts

Triskaidekaphobia Anonymous Egg

Ten jagged spires of threatening ebon visually arrest a tricolor sky, clear doom writ in the very fundament of this broad, squat egg. Five streamers of ichor green wind around the spires, captured in eight infinity knots of varying elaborate industry. Death’s breath creeps downward from the top, pooling into seven uneasy grey splotches; six of them are anointed with portentous scarlet. Smooth and still, this one lies in waiting, because no matter how you add it up, this is a triskaidekaphobe’s nightmare.

Touching and Egg Response

Reveka steps away from the egg, a look of bittersweet melancholy upon her face. "Nightmares indeed…" She mutters as she moved on to her next choice in egg. Triskaidekaphobia Anonymous Egg seems to be her next pick, her hand smoothing over the shell with a bit more confidence. "Let's see what you've got, eh?" It's like a near challenge now, trying to be ready for the egg.

Is that a challenge, Reveka? Because this one will challenge back, if you’ve any need for a sense of evenness. Sand shoots up into jagged spires around you, a maze rising for you to navigate. Follow your instincts, trader! Find your path! But no matter where you turn, it’s thirteen steps to each bend. Does it grate at the superstition in your blood? What would it mean to have a life bound by such rules? Surely being bound to such sets of steps, lovely dancer, will be worthwhile in the end…but do you have the patience to get there?

Egg Inspiration

Inspiration:tris·kai·dek·a·pho·bi·a; noun: extreme superstition regarding the number thirteen. - Treivyshe

Wiggle Pose

A shiver runs through Triskaidekaphobia Anonymous Egg, causing it to skew just slightly off-kilter. Then, stillness resumes…and prevails, no matter how long it might get stared at. It’s just contrary that way.

Hatching Message

Are those grey and scarlet splotches on Triskaidekaphobia Anonymous Egg weak spots? Because that’s where the cracks start after four sharp, urgent thumps start to tilt it sideways. It’s a quick affair after that - two knocks here and the cracks grow along the streamers of green, three whumps and they crawl along the spire-like patterns…and then the real impatience shows. One, two, three, FOUR kicks and suddenly the egg shatters, great, jagged flakes of shell falling this way and that to spill a brown dragonet unceremoniously onto the Sands.

Gift of The Fertility Gods Brown Dragonet

Sensuality speaks along each lithe-muscled inch of this svelte fellow, every nuance of brown flowing with the rich ease of wine along the salacious strength of a predator’s lean lines. Blunt-horned headknobs crown a craggy visage wrought in deep chocolate and umber, darkening to the impression of a beard beneath and all flowing back to blend into cherry-tipped ridges and his broad, ochre-washed back. Velvet mahogany gracefully gilds the prominent power of shoulder and haunch like clinging silk, sunlight’s touch revealing fawn-like spotting in klah and copper mingled with the dark violet stain of the fruit of the vine. Though flight might seem fragile in spars of aged bone-white and sails bearing the translucence of ancient parchment, a tree’s strength is traced upon deceptively powerful wings infused with branches of ironwood and charcoal beneath subtle iridescence. Pale sand and sienna streak along a generous tail while the contrast of obsidian opal glints along the curve of razor-keen talons.

Description Inspiration

This part is simple, Saetyroith is a combination of satyr, Dionysus, The Fruit of the wine and Dryad Forests. There was no end of Greek and Mythological inspiration for your big, hedonistic brown.

Wandering Pose

Oh, what a perfect party this is! So many gathered, keen on mingling…but all with a purpose, and despite his curious quick-stepping among his siblings and the white-robed hopefuls, Gift of the Fertility Gods Brown Dragonet is just as keen on a purpose of his own, really. He just isn’t finding it in this first cluster of Candidates, all of whom get a good eyeballing. Mmmmm…nope, none of these!

Second Wandering Pose

Bronzes, browns, blues and greens, oh my! Gift of the Fertility Gods Brown Dragonet is just loving the fact that he’s got all these siblings to greet, as well as this throng of robed people to investigate. Trying to make it all work together while searching out the one that’s his is a bit of a challenge, but he’s managing. Even so, the urgency is mounting, and he’s seeming less and less distractible.

Public Impression Pose

Running around meeting everyone is fun and all, but Gift of the Fertility Gods Brown Dragonet is now eager to get on to the life of his party. Where, oh, where…oh! Yes, there she is; he’d passed her just a moment ago. Now, however, he trots right up to the long-haired Zingari woman and circles her once, practically twining himself around her with a croon before he parks to gaze up into her eyes with fate-sealing adoration.

Private Impression Message

Gift of the Fertility Gods Brown Dragonet turns whirling eyes in your direction and your mind is first invaded by the smell of fresh churned earth and fruit on the vine. Then other, more familiar scents tickle the edges of your senses: curry, saffron, cinnamon, nutmeg, and color filters in too, a wild dance around the grapevines, Zingari colors all a riot as they march through the once lonely pathways of your mind. ##brown« Reveka….no, no, this simply will not do. A paragon of womanhood such as yourself should have a name worthy of her beauty. Evka, yes… Evka, a beautiful name for a beautiful woman. I am your Saetyroith. Let us take our supper and dance the night away, my love! »

Theme Inspirations

When thinking of a theme to fit to Reveka, it was hard to do. What would fit with her? And suddenly, at some point, this idea came up: A grandiose mashup of Dionysus, Satyrs, and Centaurs. And there are three of them because your Saetyroith displays traits from all of them. Dionysus because of Reveka’s love of liquor, and her Zingari roots and spirit, which very much resemble the old pagan ways, Centaurs because of their nobility, connections to the stars and to the clutch theme, and Satyrs because of their fun loving, lusty nature.

Dionysus

According to greekgodsandgoddesses.net:

Centaurs

According to Encyclopedia Brittanica:

Satyrs

Sae_5.jpg

According to Encyclopedia Brittanica:

Then Comes the second part of things, the thing that ties your Saetyroith to the clutch theme, his Zodiac sign. Being themed as he is, it seemed the only one that would fit him, is Sagittarius.

Dragon Song

God of Wine - Third Eye Blind

Sae_6.jpg


This song just seems to resonate with Saetyroith, being the odd mix of greek mythos that he is with it’s heavy Dionysus/Bacchus themes. A bit on the nose, but it’s all him in every way. He is the thing Evka has been searching for for so long, her god of wine, and he will never let her down.

Saetyroith’s Zodiac Sign and Personality

Motto: "The beaten path is always worthy of exploration."

Sagittarius


Symbol: The Archer
Element: Fire
Polarity: Positive
Quality: Mutable
Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Ruling House: Ninth
Spirit Color: Light Blue
Lucky Gem: Topaz
Flower: Thistle & honeysuckle
Top Love Matches: Aquarius
Key Traits: Adventurous, creative, strong willed
Sae_7.jpg

Independent and strong-willed, Sagittarius personalities are all about going off the beaten path. Sagittarius isn’t afraid to step away from the pack, and is a natural born leader who goes after what he or she wants, regardless of what other people think. Sagittarius is a born adventurer, and loves solo travel and exploration.

All of this describes both you, Evka, and your wine loving brown! Your Saetyroith can sense that love of adventure within you, can sense that you’ve not traveled the beaten paths. He’ll want adventures with you, particularly in the beginning, when the whimsy of youth is still about him, though that never truly leaves him either.

Sagittarius is open-hearted, generous, and big-spirited, but Sagittarius is always truthful. Because of this, they may hurt others’ feelings, or may be called out for not having tact or empathy. The latter is not true. With their keen imagination, Sagittarius is adept at putting themselves in another person’s shoes—that’s why so many Sagittarius are successful actors—but they do not feel the need to beat around the bush or lie. You can trust a Sagittarius to tell you what they really think. You can also trust a Sagittarius, period. Unlike other signs, they won’t spill any secrets.

Sound familiar Evka? Maybe like you a little? It Should. Because it is you, and it’s Saetyroith too. This big, wine-soaked brown will embody these traits, to the tee. But, much like his Greek God counterpart, he’ll know how to party and when to do it. Sae is the life of the party wherever he goes, knowing how and knowing how to push Evka to enjoy those hedonistic urges we get sometimes.

You have scars Evka, this is clear, things that make you hold back when you should be pushing forward. Saetyroith will see this and push you towards those things that scare you. Life is no fun living in fear and woe you know!

«Evka darling, you’ve been all work and no play. You see that whiskey? You see that yummy piece of flesh over there? Go fetch, and I expect not to see you until the wee hours!»

He is generous, your Sae, nearly to a fault. He will always try to give you everything in life he thinks you deserve. You are his muse, his Aphrodite, his to protect and spoil in any way he so chooses, and the same is true vice versa, you will want to give him everything you think he deserves too.

Another thing, Your Saetyroith won’t ever be afraid to speak his mind on a subject, he’s direct, and forthright and he’ll expect you to be that way too, even though you already display this trait on your own. He will enhance it, so be careful, in the early days and beyond, because you might end up saying something you shouldn’t.

Sagittarius is a steadfast friend and a creative thinker; a great person to have on a work team, as they have infectious energy and enthusiasm. They aren’t looking for constant feedback, and can take a project and run with it. A Sagittarius is smart, capable, and a true trailblazer.

Friendship is important to Saetyroith, as important as it is to you Evka. While Saetyroith might not put much stock into Romantic relationships (though he doesn’t mind if you do), he takes friendships and alliances quite seriously. After all, the hedonist in him is a social butterfly after all!

«You should visit Amani, you haven’t seen her in far too long and you really ought not become a hermit Evka. Plus, then I can see Zymuraith too. Or perhaps go out with some of your friends, I bet Talya or J’ay would appreciate some company!»

With a pack of brown brothers who are ambitious leaders, it should be no surprise that your Saetyroith is one too. Sagittarians are born leaders and well, Saetyroith will want his time in the limelight too. So be prepared to be ambitious, though this is also something you are not lacking in Evka.

All of these will apply to your Saetyroith Evka, but don’t forget that you will have to temper him at times too, in an effort not to lose yourself to his very strong personality.

Dragon Scent

The spicy aromas clinging to his hide and wafting through his scape bring you back to being among the Zingari in an instant. Possibly bringing a pang of homesickness along with it.

Sae_8.jpg
Sae_9.jpg
Sae_10.jpg

Often, it will be the warmth of cinnamon, nutmeg, and just a hint of clove. When a celebratory mood strikes him, it's curry, saffron, the acerbic tang of the most decadent Zingari red, and the loamy soil of vineyards.

Anger comes with a layer of campfire smoke that can be stifling depending on intensity. No matter his state of mind, Saetyroith smells like home. He is your very own moving Zingari gather basically, though Saetyroith’s mental gathers are much more salacious.

Mindvoice/Scape

Voice

The closest thing we could think of to a Greek accent is an Istan one. Your Saetyroith will have the sultry tones of an Island accent to go with the wild and intoxicating mindscape of his.

Scape

Sae_15.jpg
Sae_16.jpg
Sae_17.jpg

Saetyroith’s scape is something else. He’ll make you homesick with the aromatic, spicy scents that accompany the hedonistic party of his mind. Visually, he’s a wild vineyard surrounded by an even wilder forest, a bonfire at its center. Here, it’s always a vivacious party, figures seemingly dancing and singing in revelry through vineyard and trees.

But the center fire, well, that is just for the two of you. Like at home, when the Zingari families gather ‘round the fires at supper time to regroup and commune. This too will be true of Saetyroith’s central fire. This is your place to regroup and commune, to enjoy the heat of the flames and stare into them. TO talk, or laugh, or sit in companionable silence. It’s up to you.

Sacred Space

The Vineyard:

Sae_18.png

Saetyroith’s favorite place to be is a vineyard, where grapes are turned to wine and aged to perfection. He loves the neat order of the grapevines, and the tang of fresh grapes off the vine. An odd quirk he’ll have is wanting a bottle of wine from any place you happen to travel, and he’ll want to keep the bottles after.

Gathers: A close second Favorite

Gathers will be a close second with Saetyroith, he loves festivities of all kinds and will not be able to resist a prime spot for watching them while encouraging you to enjoy them too.

Flights

In bed and in relationships, Sagittarians are adventurous and giving, able to adeptly try new things or break down barriers. In bed, Sags love trying new things and making everything an adventure. Yes to the lights on; yes to lovemaking outside. In relationships, Sags will be honest and true to themselves, and that may mean that they will move on from a relationship. If it’s not working, it’s not working, and a Sagittarius won’t stay for the sake of another person’s feelings. A Sagittarius will always be honest and in check with their emotions, and a Sagittarius will not engage in emotional blackmail.

Sae_19.png

Saetyroith's proclivities for indulgence and pleasure don't stop at the materialistic. When his carnal nature is finally awoken, there will be little in your power you can do to stop him from flirting up a veritable storm with any and all eligible bachelorettes. This part of the chase will not be neglected and, as a potential suitor, he'll range from charming to downright lavacious in his comments and imagery. As nothing will do but the best for his new consort, prepare to help him acquire trinkets to express his admiration — the more garish, the better.

When the lady finally rises, Faranth forbid you try to stop him! Indeed, it will be struggle enough to keep from losing him — and yourself, Evka! — to the madness that overtakes him, for it will be here that the aspects of Dionysus come to the forefront in full force. A festival of pleasure, madness, and wild frenzy will be unleashed as he takes to the sky. For all his sweet words, he's not above some trickery to help him succeed.

After the prize is won and the chaotic fervor of lust dies, his favor will be mercurial at best. Oh, he'll wax poetic and dote while it suits him, drawing his lady lover back to bed with him for as long as he can get away with it, but as soon as her attention wanders, so does his. For this reason, it'll be a rare occasion for him to find a true mate. If his Ariadne of Krete is found, however, his devotion will not wander even if his gaze does. (After all, what kind of self-respecting demigod of pleasure would deny himself the indulgences of the flesh?)

And the ones that get away? Brace yourself, because the fury of desire and chaos of the drunken revelry will not abate without serious intervention on your part. What exactly that involves is up to you, but Sae's suggestion is always going to be downing an inordinate amount of wine and finding someone to vent the worst of those frustrations on. Once he's sated, it'll be as if the flight never happened, lost forever to an evening of overindulgence.

As a clutchsire, he'll approach every event along the way with a raucous celebration, crashing cymbals and sounding the salpinx until everyone's attention has been gathered. Thankfully for him, there will be a lot to celebrate; the aspect of fertility will shine through via particularly large clutches. While the eggs are on the Sands, his ego will be nigh insufferable. (Even if he's a bit neglectful of the actual 'parenting' aspect.) Of the Hatchlings themselves, he'll be quick to pick favorites to take under his wing for didactic instruction in the ways of wine, wooing, and festivity.

Thread

Thread. Every person and dragon’s worst nightmare. The Silver Menace. The Forever Foe.

Thread is the ultimate enemy. Saetyroith will hate it with a burning, fiery passion. A hate that will show itself spectacularly in the length and heat of his flames. From weyrlinghood and into adulthood, Saetyroith will be determined to do his best, to become his strongest so that he may one day have his shot at the silver parasite all wish to eradicate from the world.

Centaurs were known for their battle and archery skills, and Saetyroith shares this. He will be exceptionally keen with formations and thread fighting.

His victories will be loud and celebratory, and he will demand wine and whiskey and revelry for all after. He will be jubilant for as long as his memory serves him, and when he’s happy, it serves him fair enough.

His losses, injuries, loss of brothers and sisters in arms, will be taken to heart; hard and fast. He’ll mourn deeply, sulk deeply. However, partier that he is, hedonist that he is, he’ll want to forget that pain. And somehow, magically maybe, he always seems to forget trauma faster than the happier memories. This may be a blessing in disguise for you Evka because his funks will be deep and hard to pull away from.
