Honestly, this month has a huge opportunity for interpertation, so go wild!

But it is time to enjoy the end of the Turn, so folks should get together, spend some time gossiping, and drinking Hot Chocolate (alcohol and marshmallows opional)... does Pern even have marshmallows????? (they do now!)

20.07.692 - (52 years old)
Place of Birth:
Telgar Region
Searched By:
Primary Home:
High Reaches Weyr
Searched Date:
Eye Colour:
Pale Blue
Hair Colour:
Brown, wavy
Softly toned
General Description:
Eyes: A light shade of blue that brightens when he’s in a good mood and looks dull when he’s a bit listless himself.

Hair: A light shade of brown, his hair wouldn’t be all that remarkable if it wasn’t for the wavy curl that takes over his slightly scruffy length.

Given his rather unhealthy lifestyle in recent turns, M’ris had put on extra weight that didn’t come from muscle mass. Once he started to straighten out his life again, his physique, while still a bit softer than some others, has regained some of its tone and strength. He has defined arms and legs with his abdomen losing the extra padding and slowly coming along to something worth showing off.

Face-wise, M’ris has a rather sculpted jawline that ends in a point rather than the strong jaw most manly men sport. Whether done subconsciously or not, he usually has a few-days-old stumble that gives him a more masculine look than a clean shave does. Thanks to his slender jawline, his large ears seem all the more prominent, making that the main reason he keeps his hair long enough to help camouflage them.
General Dressing Style:
While it’s hard to do so in varying stages of exile, M’ris does prefer to put a bit of effort into his clothing. A nice shirt and well-tailored pants are all he really needs though. No excess in details and colour isn’t overly important either. Darker tones suit him fine and require little thought about matching.
Bradley Cooper
Painting with Watercolours: A recent hobby; M’ris finds a new tranquility in himself when he’s playing with heavily diluted paints that glide over parchment with ease. He has no talent and what he ends up with is mostly a page with colours swirled around.

Swimming: It’s a good way to cool off and relax but it can also be used to fool himself into exercising.

The Mystery Notes: He’s actually bordering on being obsessed with them. They’re poorly written but fun is still conveyed and M’ris gets a good laugh out of them. He’s always waiting for the next one to appear and checks the boards regularly.
Reliable: Despite his party boy phases, M’ris can clean up and show up when he is truly needed.

Adventurous: M’ris is always up for exploring and views new things as a challenge that shouldn’t get in the way.

Charismatic: His easy nature and love of laughing make him popular with most and he’s been known to sway people to his way of thinking more than once with a smile and the right words.
Healers: This stems from his hatred of dragon healers that couldn’t do anything to stop the plague. He doesn’t trust Healers and wonders about motives at times, especially when prominent people in their Weyr die under a Healer’s watch.

Exercise: Once, he didn’t mind it so much but since falling out of shape and living a lazy life for too long, M’ris hates exercising from sit-ups to push ups to running. Nothing enjoyable comes from it though he does appreciate the body he’s starting to get again.

Food Allergies: Redfruit leaves his face red and blotchy though it isn’t as bad as the way cheese can affect him. Cheese often leaves him with stomach cramps and while it is a common part of meals, M’ris has learned to bypass it.
Addictive Personality: While he can eventually moderate some addictions, M’ris can easily fall into a habit of constantly turning to something whether for comfort or the thrill. Booze, sex, and even his secret affair with K’tir all qualify for this.

Impulsive: He doesn’t always stop to think what the consequences are before suddenly doing something.

Detached: Since the death of his mate, M’ris can flirt with the best of them but he never gets attached and there are some that see through the guise and know he’s a bit empty inside when it comes to other people.
Habits & Mannerisms:
M’ris drums his hands on his legs when sitting and bored.
General Personality:
While hardly classified as a ladies’ man and certainly doesn’t rank as highly as some of the blueriders running around, M’ris is a man that enjoys the carnal pleasures liberally. He doesn’t sleep with every woman that looks his way but he also finds it perfectly acceptable to have more than one woman warming his bed on any given night and doesn’t exactly shy away from letting that be known. In truth, while on some level he does enjoy the physical contact, it has become more of a habit borne of necessity. It helped him to cover up the pain of his mate that died in exile, something that nearly drove him to the brink of insanity and would have left him drowning in the ocean if it wasn’t for his dragon’s devotion.

Women help him keep the pain of his loss buried and gives him something fun to do now that so much time has passed and he’s been able to move on to some degree. That wasn’t his only coping device, however. Once Katila was established and supplies were being brought back with the secret scouting parties, M’ris took up drinking to the point where he blacked out on more than one occasion. He’d wake with little to no memory of the previous night – or several days if he had been binge drinking. Oftentimes he was a happy drunk that bordered on goofy and annoying. It took a lot of time, patience, and fists to the face to help M’ris find his way back out from the bottom of the bottle. Despite the addiction that started to rule his life, he never fully quit drinking but limits himself to a few drinks on special events, like Hatchings.

The personality that shines when he isn’t drunk or seducing someone into bed is rather personable. He’s not a social butterfly by any stretch of the imagination but he doesn’t seek out the shadows to hide in either. He is often smiles and friendly with a hint of silliness but just as easily, he can silently agree and follow orders from his superiors or be miserable towards someone that irritates him.

Given his rank of bronzerider, M’ris has always believed he is among the top of the food chain and arrogance shines through. He has respect for the Weyrleader and his Wingleader but he also expects everyone else to treat him with reverence as well. The current trend that Katila fell into of brownriders working above their station and taking the positions meant for bronzeriders rubbed him the wrong way and he tried, usually in vain, to rally support against the upstarts and troublemakers – notably, of course, brownrider S’kef.

No one is aware that he had a fling with K'tir as he's intent on playing up the straight bronzerider thing.

No one is aware of his two oldest daughters. He left them in the North when he went into exile. Upon the return North, he saw one of them in a tavern but he didn't approach her. He's never made contact since that close call.
Important History:
692 & 0: Marnaris is born; the third son for his parents.

702 & 10: He’s deemed more than old enough to begin seriously helping around the farm and Marnaris gains a new respect for his father and the discipline that is needed for maintaining such a scheduled routine. He’s still not overly fond of it, though.

705 & 13: A Searchrider notices him on a trip to the market with his family. Given his parents could barely afford to send the eldest son to a Hall and nothing truly remarkable awaited him outside a marriage to a bland girl as he got older, Marnaris eagerly accepts the offer to Stand.

706 & 14: His rather girly eyes and slightly longer than the current trend hairstyle leaves him open to ridicule from older Weyrbrats and Weyrlings, especially when he doesn’t Impress for the first several Hatchings he Stands for.

707 & 15: Impresses to Mosiath, the first bronze of the clutch.

709 & 17: Graduation! He takes up the name M’ris, much to the delight of some of the other riders who call him Missy and other girly names but now that he’s a full-fledged bronzerider, M’ris flaunts his rank when needed to get his way.

710 & 18: Wins his first gold flight early in the turn and proudly watches the Hatching his wonderful dragon sired.

711 & 19: M’ris is horrified that Mosiath chased a green. He’s proud the dragon won another flight but the rider was male and M’ris wasn’t thrilled with waking beside a man despite having finally accepted it as natural – for other people to indulge in.

712 & 20: Wins the maiden flight of a different gold, one that Mosiath takes a strong interest in. M’ris himself doesn’t find the goldrider all that bad either and takes up a relationship with her later in the turn.

713 & 21: His first child with Sarendall is born.

714 & 22: Having managed to win all of Sarendall’s flights, the Weyr considers them mated and M’ris finds himself developing stronger than expected feelings for the woman that leaves him okay with being mated.

715 & 25: His second child with Sarendall is born.

716 & 24: The plague is working its way through the dragon population and the order is given to flee South in order to save as many dragons as possible. The suggestion to split up is ignored by M’ris who refuses to let Sarendall out of his sight and they make the trip together, setting up their own little camp when they finally reach land. Their two young children are left with their favourite crèche worker who stayed in the North.

717-718 & 25-26: While it was nothing to brag about, their quaint hut is destroyed in a storm one night, forcing them to start over yet again. Other than that set back, M’ris doesn’t mind too much the life spent with his mate, though the longing for a few more friends and music hits at times.

719 & 27: At the end of the turn, Sarendall falls ill and with the lack of supplies and knowledge, she dies with Karith taking them between. This event breaks M’ris to the point where he was suicidal, begging Mosiath to take him to his mate and telling him to stop saving him from the ocen’s embrace. Eventually the bond outweighed the grief and M’ris managed to keep himself alive for his dragon’s sake.

720 & 28: The call to reunite is heard but M’ris hesitates. Mosiath encourages him it’s better to move on then to continue staying in the place that holds the good and bad memories and they finally join up with the survivors.

721-726 & 29-34: Alcohol, as bad as the Katilan attempts are, becomes of his favourite thing and M’ris spends turns lost in its comforting embrace to assist him in forgetting the pain and horrors of exile. Regardless of hour, he’s likely drunk or hungover from days of binge drinking. Luckily he’s not a violent drunk but his wandering hands and lewd comments to the wrong women earn him smacks by gentle hands or punches by heavy fists. That doesn’t mean he’s never successful and finds himself in different beds regularly.

727 & 35: Nirinath rising pleases Mosiath but M’ris’ foggy mind hinders the win. The event, however, assists in cleaning M’ris up and he eases up on the drinking. New eggs after so long is a sign of hope to him and he finally realises that Sarendall wouldn’t like or forgive him for his sorry state.

728-731 & 36-39: Drinking becomes something to be done when celebrating or mourning and now that he’s more sober than not, M’ris begins making friends in better circles and applying himself more to assisting others and the Weyr.

731 & 39: Drunk and horny at the World Above feast, M’ris meant to find a female partner but ended up with brownrider K’tir. Shocked that he had enjoyed himself, M’ris finds himself taking K’tir up on his offer to stop by again sometime a half a month later. While women are still preferred, the thrill of sneaking around to meet with the brownrider that can keep a secret adds to the desire to continue meeting.

732 & 40: The return of Firelizards puts M’ris a bit on edge and he watches them closely until it is shown they aren’t about to start the second plague. The attempt on D’ren’s life isn’t taken well. Even if there were flaws in the man’s leadership, he was still their leader and a bronzerider. To find out another bronzerider was responsible disgusts M’ris and he doesn’t mourn T’shiro after the execution. He does, however, quietly voice his displeasure at seeing a brownrider step up.

733 & 41: The announcement S’kef makes that women riders are no longer allowed honorifics makes sense to M’ris and is one of the few things he so far agrees on with the brownrider. Having once been mated to a gold, he always felt keeping their full name was its own honour and girls on fighting dragons don’t need to pretend they’re one of the boys by taking on an honorific.

734 & 42: The landslide brings back horrible memories and M’ris falls back into the bottle for quite some time. Aradissicath’s clutch hatching without issue helps to sober him up again as he sees hope isn’t entirely lost just yet.

735 & 43: Continues to assist in setting up Telgar Weyr, finding pleasure with some of his affairs.

[736 & 44: Happily takes the position of Ista Weyrleader when he's told he can pick the goldrider to 'lead' with him. Ameris is chosen without hesitation has their dragons have taken a fondness for each other and M'ris is starting to feel the same way for the woman.

738 & 46: Early in the turn, Ameris gives birth to their daughter, Eris.

739 & 47: Continuing the trend of everything bad happens in Ista, M'ris has to deal with deaths on the sands during a Hatching which causes Igen to no longer allow Searching in their region. The drought has M'ris rationing food and carefully managing their supplies. The fires happening soon after leave M'ris exhausted but proud of not only his Weyr but all of them coming together to help. There were casualties and he spends a lot of nights thinking about those lost and if he's at fault for bad planning. Ameris and his kids are the only reason he doesn't start drinking again.

740 & 47: With the population growing steadily, it's only a matter of time before another Weyr needs to be opened. A meeting of the leaders in month 9 decides it will be Benden and that he and Ameris will lead the preparations and the new Weyr while Casa and J'zaq take over Ista. M'ris is not happy with this plan but finally relents. He's convinced Casa will screw up everything he's done for Ista but it won't be his problem for much longer and a change of scenery and getting away from bad memories is needed.

741 & 48: The start of the year is spent getting Benden Weyr ready to move to. At the end of month 4, it's finally move in time!

742 & 49: In the third month, three days after his son Mardarian's birthday, most of the family is gathered for food and games when tragedy strikes. A disgruntled drudge poisoned their drinks, making three of them ill but Mardarian drank too much of it to be helped and died.

743 & 50: Most of the past year was spent in a slump and he had taken to drinking regularly once more. His Second did most of the work as M'ris couldn't always bear the pressure. He did eventually start to clean up again and jumped at the chance to bring his family to a new Weyr away from so many bad memories. At the end of the year, he and Ameris opened their third Weyr together in High Reaches.

M’ris has the basic of basics taught by wandering Harpers in the region since his parents couldn’t afford to send him to a Hall. He expanded a bit on his reading and writing at the Weyr but he never had much interest in numbers or history. Since becoming Weyrleader, he's had to attempt some interest in both but he leaves a lot of that to his Second.

Dragon Information
Wing and Rank:

Adult Stats
27.4 foot length, 15 foot tall, with a 39 foot wingspan.
Clutch Details:
Gold Flodareth x Bronze Tanroth at Telgar Weyr on the 23.07.711 [Clutch Page] Benden Weyr
Mosiath was rather gangly in youth with an awkward gait.
His wings are slightly too small for his frame which, while wouldn’t be classified as ‘fat’ isn’t slender either. Before the plague and founding of Katila, Mosiath was considered rather average in size for bronze dragons but now, with each clutch that hatches, he finds himself ending up on the smaller end of dragon sizing; especially since browns and a lot of blues are becoming larger than him.
A deep rumble when he’s relaxing or pleased but it takes on a slightly higher pitch when he’s in high spirits and energetic.
Mosiath has a surprising understanding of others and goes out of his way to make dragon and human alike comfortable. He’s interested in problems that he can help solve, be it a physical task or even a mental or emotional issue.

That isn’t to say he’s entirely selfless, however. He is still bonded to M’ris and the man’s arrogance has rubbed off some over the years. Mosiath can use his station to his benefit when needed but rarely looks down upon others without an extremely good reason.
Habits/Mannerisms: Sleeps on his back when napping in the sun.

Playing I-Spy: Mosiath doesn’t care if it seems childish, he simply loves observing everything around him and playing the game with others to see if they are as observant. He’s taken to playing with the newly hatched since they’re so energetic and curious.
Peering Over Shoulders: He’s a curious dragon and sometimes waiting to be let in on the story and news isn’t good enough and he peeks over shoulders and heads to see what’s going on

Being Painted: M’ris saw children painting Grith once and had the idea to try out his new hobby on Mosiath. It didn’t go over well. The typically kind and docile dragon will usually vanish when anyone comes too close with paint in hand.

Diplomatic: Mosiath is rather skilled in playing the middle ground and helping both sides come to an understanding. He’s rather impartial.
Sympathetic: Not one to let someone suffer alone, Mosiath will curl up beside someone and be their shoulder to cry on as he listens to issues.
Practical: Countering M’ris’ impulsiveness, Mosiath is a thinker and doesn’t jump head long into trouble.

Arrogant: He might come across as a nice guy but he thinks rather highly of himself.
Gullible: When his bleeding heart is stronger than his arrogance, Mosiath can fall for mind games and be taken advantage of.
Flight Records
Pet Details

Ameris gifted him a gold firelizard egg at the beginning of 742. He named her Vanilla (Nilla) and she's pale in colour. Personality-wise, she's still young but she's on the prissy side but adores M'ris and Eris and tolerates Ameris. With some training, she will be helpful with sending letters and fetching (pestering) people for M'ris.
