Month 12, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Winter -3 - 2 C | 26 - 35 F
Fort is already home to snowfalls, though early in the month they fade away when the sun rises. As the month progresses, more snow stays on the ground, ending up with several feet of snow before the month is over. The areas around homes and populations has the snow shoveled away or trodden down. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove some danger and are routinely removed.

Ista Boundaries:
Winter, 9 - 21 C | 48 - 69 F
Generally warm enough to go about without a jacket on, Ista has low humidity but high chance of rain, generally in the form of vicious afternoon thunderstorms. The storms wash away any bite of heat the day had, and leave it feeling fresh for the night. The days are short, but grow bright quickly and the afternoons seem to be particularly short when heavy thunderstorms roll in and cover the sky.

Telgar Boundaries:
Winter, -5 - 0 C | 23 - 32 F
Bitterly cold, with icy winds constantly flowing down from the mountains. Freezing rain is almost constant; the sky always a murky grey and the ground slippery with slushy refrozen ice. The days are extremely short, with the nights dropping a good number below the daily average. Icicles attached to Weyr ledges prove a major danger, and are checked upon every day, with anything bigger than a fist being removed.


Month 07, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries:
Summer 27 - 38 C | 80 - 100 F
Light breezes down from the mountains tot he North keep the temperature comfortable, even when the sun can bake an egg on the edge of a weyr. Sunburn is common.

Ista Boundaries:
Summer, 34 - 43 C | 93 - 110 F
A very dry, dusty heat. Little to no rain, causing more than some to worry about the drought not breaking and the rest of the Isle being at risk of fires. Many seek the depths of weyr, hold or hall during the midday and early afternoon heat.

Telgar Boundaries:
Summer, 26 - 35 C | 79 - 95 F
Muggy, sticky and generally just plain humid. Thunder storms are regular occurances, often happening in the early afternoon or evening, with heavy rainfall before drying off sometime in the night. Mornings are usually crisp, but warm up swiftly.


Month 06, 740 AL

Fort Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Ista Boundaries: Season, Low to High
Telgar Boundaries: Season, Low to High

Month 04, 740 AL
North: Early Spring | South: Early Autumn
−1.9 C to 4.7 C | 20.0 C to 29.0


Spring has sprung, with the snow slowly melting in much of the North, creating mushy grounds and greyish, icy snow piles that are doing their best to melt. In comparison, Ista finds itself naturally warmer, (~10C / 50) and many people who can find rides are making their way to the Island to spend some time in warmth and sunshine, away from the lingering touch of winter.

Katila is beginning to cool down to more reasonable temperature, but is no less muggy and uncomfortable to those who are not used to the seasons. It is still a good place to escape to when seeking a warm day or a nice swim at the lake, though.

The Red Star can be seen by those who choose to see it, causing no shortage of whispers that Thread will return - and just as much dismissal from those who do not believe. After all, it's been so long, surely it is no longer a threat! Weyrleaders are, regardless, beginning to put together wings in their Weyrs, if only to keep troublesome and bored riders busy.

Month 12, 739 AL
North: Early Winter| South: Early Summer
-3.1 to 2.1 C | 20.4 C to 29.4 C


Winter has come slowly to the Northern lands of Pern, with more rain and cold winds than snow. As the month progresses, more and more snow will fall, with frequent blizzard-like storms towards the very end of the month. Telgar and Fort will in particular become burried under mountains of snow, while Ista is sunjected to frequent icy rainstorms, and heavy winds coming in from across the ocean.

13.4 to 21.0 C | 13.8 C to 25.6 C


Following the disastrous fires (sometime in around the 28th of Month 08), Ista Isle has found itself suddenly in the midst of constant rain; not enough to flood, but a steady, dreary downfall that seems to only take a time out for a couple of hours here and there, before coming back again. Its cast the entire sooty Isle into a sombre and depressed mood. Alongside the rain, the weather is muggy and while not hot, is not particularly cool, either.

The rest of Northern Pern is getting their usual weather, though they, too, have been called to action following the wildfires that savaged Ista. Many individuals who called Ista Island home have been relocated not just to Ista Weyr, Ista Hold or Sea Cliff Hold, but also to other areas of Pern, whether with family or friends.

Month 08, 739 AL
North: Late Summer | South: Late Winter
17.4 to 25.5 C | 10.8 C to 23.2 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm - 37 to 45 C - has resulted in an incredibly dry summer, with little to no rain. This was climaxed by a dry thunderstorm, the results of which caused three fires to start across the Island on the 24.07.739 in the early morning hours. While the results of this are yet to be played out, the events will no doubt leave more than just the scarring of the land.

Month 07, 739 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter
18.0 to 26.6 C | 10.2 C to 21.9 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 37 to 45 C range, making it now a more than slightly undesirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the more enjoyable early summer weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind. Ista's limited farmlands and fields are dry and dusty, with golden straw instead of grass where there is any growth at all.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are still getting a lot of evening rain and the occasional thunderstorms, which cools down the populus and allows them to sleep easily without sweating their brains out like the Istans.

9.9 C to 18.4 C | 13.7 C to 24.5 C


Ista is still unseasonably warm, with average weather being in the 32 to 40 C range, making it a highly desirable escape for the rest of the Northern population from the chilly mid-spring weather. There has been very little in the way of rain, though the coastal areas are no stranger to the salty wind.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Northern areas are getting a lot of rain, thunderstorms, and cloudy days. Grass is growing, flowers flowering, and baby animals popping up all over the place! Yay spring!

Spring has sprung, with the snow slowly melting in much of the North, creating mushy grounds and greyish, icy snow piles that are doing their best to melt. In comparison, Ista finds itself uncommonly warm (~12C / 53.6) and many people who can find rides are making their way to the Island to spend some time in warmth and sunshine, away from the lingering touch of winter.

Katila is beginning to cool down to more reasonable temperature, but is no less muggy and uncomfortable to those who are not used to the seasons. It is still a good place to escape to when seeking a warm day or a nice swim at the lake, though.

Month 11, 738 AL
North: Late Autumn | South: Late Spring


Autumn is coming to an end, with the days slowly becoming shorter still, with early nights and late mornings. The temperature is getting very cool, with jackets being more required, but it has yet to actually snow. Despite this, it is often raining and miserable.

The Southern contient is in full bloom, with flowers coming to life in the grasses and on the trees. The skies are bright blue with fluffy clouds, and occassional sunshowers bringing a dampness to the day. The nights are still crisp, but not cold. The ground is starting to dry up as water is absorbed by the blooming flora.

Month 10, 738 AL
North: Mid Autumn | South: Mid Spring


Autumn is in full tilt, with the leaves a shocking array of orange and red, and more of them on the ground than on the trees. The skies are often a clear and crisp blue, with a cool breeze flowing, shifting the leaves and sending them scattering. Rain is not common, but when it does roll in the skies are dark like night come early, and thunderstorms are not uncommon, though they don't last for long and the amount of rain that falls isn't too heavy.

Month 09, 738 AL
North: Start Autumn | South: Start Spring


Nothern regions are entering into Autumn, with the trees beginning to change to their reds and oranges, while the air is beginning to feel more crips. There are still more warm days than cool, and the nights are mostly warm enough for light bedding still. Rain has faded away and most days are clear and bright.

The Southern contient finds itself heading into spring, with rain and flowers vying for attention. The ground is often muddy and squishy, while the skies are either bright and blue, or overcast wtih fluffy clouds.

Month 08, 738 AL
North: End Summer | South: End Winter


Summer is winding to an end in the Northern hemisphere, with the weather slowly cooling and the trees beginning to turn their leaves. The days are still long and bright, but the sun is beginning to lose some of its strength.

The coastal Weyrs are falling victim to coastal storms, strong winds and heavy rains with thunder and lightening.

The more inbound Weyrs and Holds find themselves drier, not getting nearly as much rain or storms, they find themselves on the end of a long drought.

Month 07, 738 AL
North: Mid Summer | South: Mid Winter


Summer is in full spring in the Nothern hemisphere, with the bulk of each day being unbearbly hot, followed by vicious thunderstorms and heavy humidity in the evenings and at night.

The coastal areas are experiencing monsoon like weather, and spend a lot of their time locked away in Hold, Hall or Weyr.

The more inner locations find themselves faced with more dry heat during the day, and horrible humidity in the evening and at night while the thunderstorms rage.

ITS AN UPDATE! HOORAH!

I'm not dead, my loves! This month's Event is 'Close Call!' - have fun! Stamps will be uploaded and on display in our Discord chatroom.

There is a topic here for discussion about Pernese religions and belief systems, including in and out of Weyr opinions (variably and as a whole) in regards to delicate matters, such as birth, death, and the afterlife. Also, ghosts anyone? Now I'm imagining a giant arse dragon ghost....

Healer Hall is accepting Gold Candidates (just from Fort, for now) and R'nya will soon be discussing with his Weyrwoman Rhaedalyn the merits of bringing in additional female candidates.... on the condition they are approved for Healer Apprenticeship...

Thallyath, Casa's little gold dragon, will be taking to the skies for her maiden flight in the first week of April (IC date will be 740-04-01) and while a mate is already decided, this clutch will be PC and more candidates are ALWAYS welcome, whether you want them to Impress this round --- or not!

September 2018

Spring is here! ... In Australia, anyway!

This month’s riveting event is ‘Seas of Fun’, in honour of International Pirate’s Day! After all the drama with the fires, we expect that taking to the sea (or lake, river, pond, etc) would be a very relaxing way to spend some downtime for many dragonriders and Holderfolk alike!

In preparation for October, the even is “Memories of the Past”, which we hope will be a fun way to explore your character’s past, either in solo posts or threads, as inner monolog or as back posting! How you choose to partake is entirely up to you!

October will also see our next PC HATCHING! In order to have your Candidate qualify for Impression, they must have no less than 20 posts! There are lots of characters floating around who would be more than happy to help your Candidate breech that count! Don’t forget to also UPDATE YOUR APPLICATIONS where applicable, or make sure it is submitted at all! We can’t Impress your character if we don’t know what they should be getting!

As always, be sure to submit your threads to the IC RP Timeline submission thread, so they can be added to the list! While you’re at it, remember to submit your favourite quotes – from your character’s or others! – to the Quote Submission Thread! We want to see some recent quotes thrown in with our old ones!

If you haven't already, please drop by the Dragonrider Weyr Allocations thread, and let us know where your dragonriders call home. We are hoping to set up Wings across the three PC Weyrs over the next month or so, and your assistance is much appreciated! As a result, we will be looking for Wingleaders, Wingseconds, and of course Candidates for the clutches we have scheduled for this year!

August 2018

ITS AUGUST! Do you know what that means? It means its less than 4 months until Christmas! OMG.

Okay. So moving on! This month sees us (hopefully) wrapping up the Camp Kink event! Who doesn’t love an abundance of young adults exploring their sexuality without restraint? Its been a hell of a fun ride (haha get it?) so far! Can’t wait to see what the grapevine makes of it when words gets out … haha!

On a more serious note, this month will see us engaging in the Istan Wildfires! This event is a free for all! Feel free to have your characters interact with the event in any way you feel is suitable! There is a lot of room here for personal dramas, trouble making, hero worshiping, etcetera! We really want to see how characters interact with, and dictate, the outcome of the event!

Those of you who are intersted, please take part in a discussion about the Plot for opening up the Healer Hall! You can find it [here].

June 2018

Welcome to the new month! Like always, I'm slack in getting the update up and running, but here it is! This month we have the event 'Summer Fling' - [Link] - which is turning out to be all kinds of entertaining already! Remember, it doesn't have to include smut! It could be an innocent date with some - *gasp* - hand holding!

This month also saw Gold Bedith of Mulrissa take to the skies! She was won by young Syrendryth of T'ryn! Congrats, and may your Hatching be less dramatic than the last one! The Hatching will take place in October so you have a lot of time to get Candidates created, approved, and posting up a storm!

In the meantime, gold Okalinath of Kahleena has taken to the skies! You can find her Flight thread taking place on the 4th, here Currently, there is no planned winner, so be sure to throw your bronzes and browns her way! They do not need to be natives to Telgar Weyr to participate!

Progress has slowed down a little, due to RL events (yay promotions! Boo no internet!) but we're getting back on track! Documents are still being written and we've put together a FAQs page, though its likely to recieve a lot of adjustments as we come across things. The current goal is to have everything set up and ready by July, but we'll see how well we go at that. And by we, I mean ThistleProse. lol.

April 2017

The layout is almost complete, but there is still a lot of work to be done; documents are being written up and can be found in the Site Map menu opion. Players can begin to move their characters' information to their Account Profiles, but be aware some changes may still be made and/or added.
If you find any bugs or issues, plese repot them here, and we will do our best to fix them in a timely manner.

Appearance
 
[Image: kEvWoJi.png]
Eyes:
Kahleena’s eyes are large, expressive and defined within her face. They’re a deep, warm and emotional brown, highlighted with flecks of gold that would be beautiful, except one needs to be right in Kahleena’s face and under the right lighting to see them; most people just see the fairly every day brown. Her eyelashes are long and thick, curled up in a manner that is a feminine envy and made just for batting. Her eyebrows are maintained and gently arching.

Hair:
She is possessed of long dirty blonde locks often being left loose and messy to fall down her shoulders and over her face. Kahleena does tend to try and use her hair to cover ears; which can be described as being somewhat bigger than would be perfect for her head, poking out to the sides to peep out from behind her hair no matter how she styles it.

Height:
Kahleena is a very small young woman, with a fine and delicate bone structure, she carries very little in the way of additional weight. Standing at only 5’6, Kahleena has long legs but a small torso, and long arms. 

General Appearance:
It would be a struggle, by most people’s standards, to call Kahleena pretty. It isn’t so much that she is genuinely unattractive, but the girl’s ability to look appealing, sensual or otherwise eye-catching is very hit-and-miss. Usually more miss than hit. 

Most commonly, Kahleena appears vague, with a wide-eyed expression of surprise or scandal, her lower lip often dropped just enough to reveal a rabbit-toothed display of her two front teeth. They are neither over large nor bucked, but the way in which she holds her mouth calls attention to them.

Her face has a distinctly rounded shape to it, though her chin is pointed and defined, particularly when she takes the time to smile. Her nose is small, a little pointed but well placed and well sized overall on her face. 

She has a very narrow waist, leading to slim hips from equally unimpressive breasts. Her collarbone is visible in those rare times that Kahleena wears items of clothing that are so revealing – such opportunities are very rare; Kahleena is an incredibly demure young woman who takes her modesty very seriously. Her hands are slim, with long fingers and kept with carefully maintained nails. Hands that have always been soft are especially so since the Impression of her dragon, and the regular oiling that is required.

As a woman who has borne children, Kahleena shows the trademark stretching and scarring over her thin thighs, and reasonably flat stomach, after carrying a child to full-term it is no longer perfectly flat. These particular marks are unlikely to ever be seen – by anyone! – but they are a reminder and mark of her own deep sadness and regret the young woman, who lost both of those children; one in the second trimester, and the other two months after birthing him. 

Beyond those, she has no scarring though she bruises easily and her clumsiness often leads to dots and circles that she can’t explain; although her clothing choices tend to mean that these bruises are not regularly seen by anyone. A fact which has spared Kahleena any comments regarding her clumsy movements being dangerous, even if doesn't make it any less obvious about her tendency to trip over her own feet. 

Dressing Style:
Even when she was a young girl clothing was very important to Kahleena. Growing up as a Lord’s daughter, she had certain expectations about what should and should not be worn by anyone who wanted to appear properly fashionable as well making the right impression on those around them; growing up as a poor minor Lord’s daughter, however, taught her to be particularly resourceful in what she wears and the clothing she owns. 

Not to mention the necessary skills in needlecraft to repair and maintain the possessions she owes. Kahleena is thrifty and sensible in her fashion and the style she has adopted for her own. In short, Kahleena wears dresses, and no one will ever see her in pants. At least not willingly on her part. 

There is one minor concession that has needed to be made;  Kahleena will wear pants that essentially dress with leg holes; the result being that it looked like a skirt and also would still feel like a skirt, but it means she can actually mount her dragon while retaining an appropriate degree of modesty. 

All of her dresses have high necklines, with little display of skin, while they fall easily to her ankles; boots cover her feet, sometimes with heels, but most commonly at Katila they are without. The dresses are made of light, flimsy material that keeps her from overheating in the Katilan weather. The sleeves are usually long, but with wide bell sleeves that allow for more air flow, a design that allows her to remain cooler than might otherwise be expected given the amount of material she chooses to dress in.

Not much has changed since she left Katila, although Kahleena has decided to relax in some of her choices, the necklines will never be evocative or low but they no longer always carry themselves up to just under her chin and instead will occasionally even rest parallel to her shoulders. 

 
 
Personality
 
[Image: wI7EpC9.png]

General Character Traits:
Kahleena is an incredibly idealistic young woman. She has a deep romantic soul, with ideas and dreams that are almost always guaranteed of being laughable. She strongly believes that her husband is her 'true love' and is fanatically against the idea of sleeping with anyone within the Weyr, believing it to be a terrible betrayal of her husband.

Because of that, Kahleena is incredibly depressed about her previous losses with children, both the loss of her son - for which she believes her own incompetence lead to his developing the fever that took his life - and the loss of her daughter in the second trimester. She blames herself, on a deep level, believing she is incapable of being a good woman, and a good wife, by her inability to raise her own child. As a result, while she has spent her time around the creche and occasionally within range of the Rhaedalyn 's daughter, she is timid and wary of hurting them or inadvertently killing them by looking at them wrong.

Reserved and deeply romantic, Kahleena grew up knowing what her life was going to be, and to whom she would be married and spend it with. Her entire life, from a young child, revolved around becoming the perfect wife for him. She was respectful, hardworking and completely submissive. As a result, the lifestyle within the Weyr took her by surprise, shocking and horrifying the modest and reserved young woman. The blatant homosexuality amongst many of the riders caused big brown eyes to widen further, and the promiscuous nature of many of them - particularly those that expressed their interest in her - horrified the girl who was quick to turn them down and run for the safety of her fellow trembling Holdings.

Impressing Okalinath was an earth-shattering experience and something that has uprooted Kahleena's expectations and realities. With her Impression, she will in no way be able to ever return to her husband or the simplistic life she had been expecting to lead since her very early childhood. She will be expected to interact on a sexual level with a rider of another dragon - of whom is certainly not her husband - as well as likely uphold more responsibility and expectations than her simple life had led her to expect. 

While Okalinath is a solid foundation for her to make changes, Kahleena is not handling the stress well.

It took months before Kahleena would allow anyone to come near enough to develop anything that could be called a relationship. In fact, it was a solid year before she would be prepared to even call someone friend; part of the reason was Okalinath. The little dragonet hated to sense all her pain in respect of losing her husband and the world that had been before she'd come to the Weyr. While she couldn't fix it and take Kahleena back to that life the way it was before - not to mention she didn't want to either - it didn't prevent the little Gold from arranging accidental meetings with other members of the Weyr. 

Kahleena knew it would never be perfect. That rapidly became the world before she'd been taken, a small part of her recognized that it was foolish and even childish but she didn't want to deal with that reality and instead concentrated very determinedly on trying to remember only the best of her previous life. 

As such the small cothold she calls home has become tinted with a rose-colored edge but it has also slipped past being at the immediacy of her thoughts. Now, Kahleena had learned to concentrate on Okalinath as well as what it means to be a Goldrider outside of the times when her dragon roses to mate. That was an still remains something that Kahleena struggles with greatly as even now it retains a strong sensation of guilt whenever it happens.

She copes best for the time being with ignoring that it happens or rather that it will happen. Instead, Kahleena struggles to be busy and not allow her mind to be turned towards such thoughts. It still feels wrong. 

Even if Okalinath insists that it isn't anything to fret over as it all passes quickly enough and can change from one time to the next as well. 

Kahleena is currently trying to figure out the relationship with her Weyrleader - it has been something she has never attempted before with any of the other men whose dragons have successfully flown her Okalinath but in light of the recent changes in her circumstances Kahleena has made the decision that she needs to stop running from the life she has now. 

Habits/Mannerisms:
Kahleena is a properly demure young woman, expressing very little in the way of opinions, dreams or desires. She is timid, and easily overwhelmed by demands, large crowds or new situations. Such situations cause Kahleena to fret, wringing her hands and often becoming teary and distressed with stuttering and mumbling, should her voice even be heard.

Opinions:
  Threadfall Theory: "Dear Faranth I hope not!"
 
Stealing/Kidnapping: "Dear Faranth I hope not!"
       
Firelizards: She experienced a mixture of awe & fear in the beginning. Now Kahleena is more accustomed to them & views them as useful companions. She doesn't have any of her own but isn't upset or anxious about them anymore.
   
Return North: Excited at the opportunity; nervous about running into people she once knew. Kahleena is keen to take advantage of the chance at change, not to mention the potential opportunity to do more than mope about all the time.

Likes:

  Cookery:
Kahleena learned the skill original from her mother & while it was a chore it became one that she actively sought out over other necessary tasks. In time she showed enough talent that her family didn't mind that being the case. Although she has gotten shy about cooking since being kidnapped from her home that doesn't make her any less fond of the activity. 

  Storytelling:
During the long winter months, it was the one thing that ultimately brought the family together but also encouraged Kahleena's own romantic tendencies to develop. In the stories were the princes and all the 'happy-ever-afters' that she wanted to experience in her own life, even now Kahleena will happily settle down to hear a good story being told. 

  Organization & Order:
It is linked to a dislike of change - given her experience with being stolen, it's not terribly shocking - and for Kahleena allows her to feel both centered and much more confident about her surroundings and place in the world. This is why her rooms are always tidy and kept that way by her personally. She doesn't want people fussing and throwing everything out of place as that can result in her having a negative reaction.

Dislikes:

  Weyrfolk:
It is all about how she arrived here. Kahleena knows she is technically one of them now but she doesn't completely feel that way. Everything about being here and in this life was forced upon her from the moment that she was taken away on that dragon. While she loves Okalinath it remains hard for her to open up or engage with those she regards as her captors rather than her colleagues or companions. 

  Needlecraft:
While she hasn't ever been skilled enough in general needlecraft to consider selling her work; only in crochet does she truly fail completely. Kahleena simply cannot handle the skill and while she does occasionally wonder about trying again she hasn't felt motivated enough to do so given her inherent dislike of how badly it ends up looking. Not to mention the poor association as her attempts previously were during her pregnancies. 

  Casual Sex:
She has seen more sexual encounters than she would ever have liked since being in the Weyr. Kahleena understands that the Weyrfolk are different from what she has known but that doesn't make her feel more comfortable. Not to mention the homosexual displays and what happens when Okalinath rises for her flights. Although Kahleena generally attempts to avoid thinking about it.

Strengths:

  Trsutworthy:
Kahleena is equally loyal to those she calls friends. She is the sort of woman who can be relied upon to help out whenever possible and stand fast during the bad times. It is very unlikely that Kahleena would ever be one to outright lie to another person and that is one of the reasons why she'll stutter when becoming flustered about a situation or person. 

  Loving:
This was most obvious when she with her family and her husband. Kahleena hasn't had much chance to show this trait since being taken to the Weyr, although Okalinath would certainly strongly argue that it is the case to anyone who waited around to listen to her extol the virtues of her rider. 

  Friendly:
It is the core of her personality, Kahleena is a friendly person. She has always been the sort of person to see the best, not that her present circumstances appear to offer anything positive outside of Okalinath and the joy she experiences in being around her gold dragon. It does explain how she was able to make friends in spite of her standoffish nature in the very beginning.

Flaws:

  Fragile:
Kahleena is emotionally fragile; she has a delicacy about certain typically ordinary matters for the average Weyrfolk. She doesn't handle the highly sexual and explicit nature of the Weyr well at all, however, she isn't virginal by any stretch of the imagination instead it is more about a prudish quality mixed in with a large bag of guilt about betraying the man she still calls husband in the quiet of her own heart. Even if Kahleena strongly believes she'll never see him again. 

  Predjudiced :
This developed as a result of being stolen. It has cause Kahleena to paint all dragonriders and all Weyrfolk with the same wide brush as the one who took her, along with those who also made that decision to do so. She doesn't hate passionately but it is hard for her to be stuck around those whom Kahleena feels hurt her in the worst possible way. 

  Dramatic:
In the beginning, this was displayed by explosions of tears and even physical attacks against those around her, not always particularly effective. Kahleena retains the tendency to flounce, pout and generally over-sell the situation when she is stressed or upset.

Background Story:

15.10.711 AL; Birth
Kahleena was born to a minor Lord and Lady, she was the second born daughter, and the third child overall. Her mother had gone through several failed pregnancies, with her first-born son born in 198, and Kahleena's elder sister born in 206 AL. While two additional pregnancies made it to birth, the infants died shortly thereafter.

30.07.715 AL; Age 4
The plague was irrelevant to the small child, who as a member of a lower bracket of upper-class families was not in possession of a firelizard, and being only four, had little care for dragons beyond superficial stories and fanciful daydreams.

21.05.717 AL; Age 6
Upon this day, an agreement was made with another family in a somewhat better position - both politically and financially - and Kahleena's family was very pleased with the arrangement. Her elder brother (at 19) married the young woman that had been arranged for him at a similar age and began to take a heavier hand in assisting their father with their small estate.

21.05.719 AL; Age 8
Kahleena was officially engaged to the young man chosen for her several turns prior. The engagement was a large, fanciful party in which both families spent more money than they were actually in possession of, and many higher ranking people were invited, some of which actually attended

01.01.220 AL; Age 9
Little Kahleena proved herself to be a proper young lady, educated in those areas her family deemed appropriate for women, Kahleena took to the harp with delight, though her skill with the flute was lacking, and she quickly proved to possess no singing voice. While her writing and arithmetic skills are enough to get her by, Kahleena genuinely enjoys cooking, though she is not very good at sewing or embroidery.

27.01.722 AL; Age 11
Kahleena's sister-in-law birthed twins almost two months early, both male. They both survived, though their first six months involved a lot of scares for the household

19.11.722 AL; Age 11
The year is brought to a close for the small family when Kahleena's sister is married to her own young hopeful heir, a young man from a small family quite some distance from their own home. The family spends most of the months 9, 10, 11 and 12 traveling and visiting with the other family before returning home once more.
    
28.08.727 AL; Age 16
Once more, both families put forth more money than they can actually afford to celebrate the wedding of Kahleena and the young Heir. Thereafter, Kahleena leaves her family to move in with her husband.

13.03.728 AL; Age 17
Kahleena winds up deliriously in love with her new husband and swiftly falls pregnant in the first month of the new turn.

28.12.728 AL; Age 17
She carries the child through to term with little effort, and manages a drama free birthing, though it takes her almost 30 hours from start to finish. However, the boy dies of a fever two months after birth.

25.08.729 AL; Age 18
Kahleena suffers a miss-carriage during the second trimester, this time losing a little girl child. She becomes severely distressed and convinced she is incapable of doing her one duty to her husband, though the man (almost as enamored with her as she is with him) is unexpectedly understanding.

09.09.729 AL; Age 18
Escaping the little holding, and the sympathetic glances that seem to come from every corner, Kahleena wanders out to the surrounding area, picking pretty late-summer flowers. It is with a bouquet of wild lavender that she first meets B'jin

19.11.729 AL; Age 18
She first meets Rhaedalyn, while they don't immediately hit it off their shared experiences eventually develop into a real friendship.

22.11.729 AL; Age 18
While still not confident about trusting any of the riders, one of the bronzeriders named R'nya takes an active interest in becoming her friend. It isn't long before it is the three of them mixing around the Weyr and often getting into trouble as well.

04.06.731 AL; Age 20
Unfortunately, Kahleena leaves the Sands without a dragonet, though the entire experience frightens the high heavens out of Kahleena, and upon the announcement that women will be very selectively allowed to stand, Kahleena is much appeased, particularly noticeable since she has little interest in becoming pregnant with anyone but her husband's children.

5.07.732 AL; Age 21
Kahleena is shoved onto the sands when the little gold cracks shell, and soon finds herself bonded to the young queen, by the name of Okalinath

07.10.732 AL; Age 21
After Impressing Okalinath, Kahleena finds Rhaedalyn becoming distant, even though she still insisted that they were friends Rhaedalyn said she needed some time to cope.

8.06.733 AL, Age 22
Kahleena is one of the first to congratulate Rhaedalyn when she Impresses her own gold, Aradissicath and this marks a return to their original close relationship with each other.

17.08.733 AL; Age 22
It is the day of her greatest fear; although it starts well enough. Kahleena is at first confused by Okalinath and her sudden moodiness until she realizes it is the morning of her Maiden Flight. As much as it terrified her completely, Kahleena does not actively remember the proceeding events or managed to successfully block it out from her memory. 

30.07.734; Age 23
The day of the Katila landslide; it left its mark and became something of a turning point for how Kahleena viewed the Weyrfolk.

01.01.734, Age 23-24
Okalinath is flown again by Bronze Torath of N'kal, this will repeat twice more on 29.07.234 & 09.01. 235 respectively. 

11.09.735; Age 24
Again Okalinath rises, this time she is caught by a different dragon, Bronze Vyaniorth of A'dris. Kahleena struggles again with her intense feelings of guilt.

5.04.736; Age 25
Kahleena first learns of the intended plan to return to the North. It is pushed to the back of her mind as Okalinath once more rises and is again caught by Bronze Vyaniorth of A'dris - Kahleena spends the next week avoiding everyone by sticking to her rooms & refusing to come out even for meals.

01.07.736; Age 26
Returns to the North. Although she is taken to Telgar to become one of the goldriders, at the time Kahleena is offered the chance to see her old family, however, she chooses not to accept the opportunity. This decision while painful to make is also the one Kahleena feels is ultimately for the best given that she needs to start looking ahead. 

11.08.736; Age 26
While there is far more to it, Kahleena assumes that N'vian selects her to become the Telgar Weyrwoman because she is the oldest goldrider. Although Okalinath points out that she is being foolish about his reasons and ignoring the way he looks at her; this results in Kahleena reviewing her opinion of him and some of the other members of the Weyr. 

16.10.736; Age 26
Even as she settles into the position that she feels has been forced on her (like so much else) Kahleena finds it particularly hard to cope with the poorly disguised anger & at times frustration from the older former goldrider who has been assigned to train her to handle the role. She has never encountered that sort of pain and bitterness and it makes Kahleena conscious of some of her own negative behavior in the past. 

13.11.736; Age 26
As much as she should have expected it, Kahleena is surprised when Okalinath rises again although slightly less so when it is Bronze Skorzanth of N'vian who catches Okalinath as she is aware that her dragon is intent on being some sort of matchmaker.

 
 
Education
 

Craft:  General Education

Education Details:
Aside from the general education of a Holder's daughter, Kahleena has had access to no other education beyond learning about her role as a goldrider and what is expected from her as a  result of that. This makes Kahleena relatively ordinary, although her skill with mathematics has come in useful when it comes to planning inventories as well as working out the costs of items which are needed for the Weyr and those who live there. 

 
Dragon
 
Dragon Name: Okalinath
  Name Pronounced: OH-kali-nath
Dragon Colour: Gold
Wing Assigned: N/A
  Wing Rank: N/A

Hatching Date: 15.07.732 AL
Birthing Weyr: Katila Weyr
Home Weyr: Telgar Weyr
Clutch Name: Rhythm of Life
  Clutch Mother: Gold Krypth of Jada
  Clutch Father: Brown Tyrrisath of S'kef
 
Appearance:
  Length: 32'5
  Height: 17' (slightly tall)
  Wingspan: 50' (slightly big)

  Scars & Markings:
There is little in the way of patterns to see, the tones of her young hide blend into one another, in some cases causing the eyes to play tricks when viewing her. 

  Weyrlinghood:
Okalinath was hatched a very mellow lemon gold, fading to a pale white-washed tone in sections, and darkening to the more citrus tone elsewhere.

  Adulthood:
As she grows, her Weyrlinghide will peel away to reveal a much more vibrant coloration underneath. Hot orange-gold will be most apparent along her shoulders and over her sides, with flares of color on her feet, tail and wing fingers. In contrast, the rest of her body is covered in a bright lemon yellow hide, the two colors melding together with a dappling that looks reminisce of smoke.

Mindvoice:
There is the barest suggestion of a chuckle running through her voice all the time. Okalinath is probably the least serious of the gold dragons and her playful nature shines through all the time. The most enduring trait in respect of her voice has to be the volume she uses more or less all the time; perhaps as a result of her excitable personality Okalinath tends to mentally speak very loudly and it means just about everyone can hear her speak. Unless she concentrates on it or the person actively blocks her out to avoid hearing what the gold is talking about right now. 

General Character Traits:
While her full growth will not put Okalinath at the larger end of the spectrum with her fellow gold, it will not leave her all that much smaller, either. Her final growth will reveal a dragon of a distinctly feminine build, with delicate lines and curves, and a very gently chiseled face with large, friendly eyes. Both tall and big winged for her size, albeit only by a small amount, Okalinath tends to sway between looking much smaller than she is, and looking much bigger. Usually, while this gold can easily outsize the green and blue, there are more than a few brown and most of the bronze that make her small size distinctly visible. If Okalinath has any issues with her size or how others view her because of it, she has yet to reveal as much.

It should be noted, with that said, that Okalinath is a relaxed and very easy going dragon. She enjoys the simple things in life and can often be seen encouraging Kahleena to take a deep breath and relax. She enjoys talking to all types of dragons, finding them curious creatures one and all, with oft-times intriguing opinions. Her easy going and generally, placid nature leads her to be as happy to socialize with the other gold dragons, as she is to romp and play inelegantly with the green and blue.

Habits/Mannerisms:
At times, Okalinath can be the regal creature Kahleena believes a gold dragon should be, but mostly the dragon finds her human’s rigid beliefs and opinions to be of little more interest than to be used as gentle teasing and playful banter. Okalinath sees no reason why she can’t romp and play with her sisters, or listen to the gossip – they’re fun! 

Likes:

   Gossiping:
It is one of her favourite past-times and makes her one of the most social of the current gold dragons. Okalinath thoroughly enjoys being able to spend time with other dragons and hearing about what is happening. 
 
Exploring:
Whenever she has the chance Okalinath will encourage Kahleena to explore. She understands there are limits but that doesn't stop her from pushing them as much as possible to satisfy her own curiosity. 

  Sunbathing:
When Okalinath has literally nothing else to do this is what she can be found doing, lately in the company of her Weyrmate but just as often with some of her friends once the gossiping has finished.

Dislikes:

  Being itchy:
One of the hold-overs from her dragonet years, Okalinath still really hates her skin being itchy or not well oiled. That is really one of the quickest (and only) ways to have her become cranky. 

  Kahleena's rigid nature:
As far as Okalinath is concerned her rider needs to unbend a lot more often and take advantage of what her new life has to offer. She does have a degree of sympathy for what her rider has gone through but her positive nature doesn't let her dwell on for too long or even all that often. 

  Rules:
Okalinath sees these as being totally restrictive and generally pointless. She'll follow them only as far as she is prepared to do so but any excuse to stretch or bend them will always be taken immediate advantage of as soon as possible.

Strengths:

  Positive:
She is the one who can always be found cheering on the rest of the Weyr as well as her rider. Okalinath is a force for the good. She is virtually impossible to put down and even when it does happen she'll end up bouncing back more or less immediately.

Outgoing:
Okalinath has a curious view on most things, it strives her to go out and see what is going on. Not to mention being involved with just about as much as she can possibly manage in spite of what otherwise hold her back. 

Playful:
Ever since her dragonet days she has loved to play. While Okalinath is too big for many of the games now it doesn't stop her from being the first one to suggest a water fight when bathing.

Flaws:

  Irresponsible:
Okalinath has trouble taking anything seriously, it goes against who she fundamentally is and that isn't about to change any time in the near future. As far as Okalinath is concerned, Kahleena can handle the serious side of things and be responsible. 

  Passive:
She isn't any sort of aggressive or bold dragon, Okalinath is far more likely to let someone else take the lead role. In most cases, this is Kahleena in light of becoming one of the golds at Telgar. 

  Loud:
Even though it irritates people Okalinath has never learned to moderate or control her mindvoice and the volume she speaks at. She can restrain herself but that doesn't mean she'll do it as a matter of course but only after being reminded that it is necessary.

RP Sample
 
Even with as much time had passed; had it really been only eight turns since B'jin had taken her from her home? Kahleena was still surprised with how suddenly mind could snap back to either that moment or the day Okalinath had risen for the first time. 

It was true that both occasions had terrified her, in different ways but the bitter taste of fear that burned down her throat almost forcing it closed with the rising tide of panic that came racing along her veins like ice water down from the mountains. Kahleena had the reaction mostly under control now; at least she liked to believe she did.

In fact, she no longer immediately went to panic when the familiar heat started to build in her limbs and caused her dragon to become brilliant in her golden shine. 

You're moping again

The voice was intrusive, it had surprised her on the day of Impression but very welcome and now Kahleena found it far more comforting than had initially been the case. She found it impossible to put into exactly how words how she felt about Okalinath You love me, silly beloved. Just like I love you even when you are a stick-in-the-mud Yes, yes. You big scaly eating machine. I love you and I wasn't moping...the view, well...it made me sentimental which was true. 

While Telgar was not exactly the same as Ruatha, standing in view of the mountains there was just enough to turn her thoughts in that direction. 

Sentimental is moping. It just sounds less silly she felt her lips smiling even though she wanted to hold onto some of the sensations of sadness that had carried over from her introspection You're impossible. I thought you were sleeping actually... Kahleena added as she turned on one heel and started to walk back down into the main sections of the Weyr.

It wouldn't be long before she came across someone. Kahleena was hoping it wouldn't be N'vian though He is very dashing; you should talk to him more. Then you won't stumble over words it was wonderfully sound advice which at least for now Kahleena was failing utterly in either following or appreciating You best not be shouting this like normal the fairly gentle reprimand enough to secure a feeling of indignation but no shy embarrassment that would suggest Kahleena would need to spend at least the rest of the day bright red.

Well you can't avoid him forever - and! I am getting better with my volume... though Kahleena certainly expected that Okalinath would need reminding from time to time no matter how old.
