2023/08/04 Hello loves! While I haven't been writing, I have been working on updating some issues that have been hanging around on the layout! The Character change box is now at the bottom of the page, beside the up/down arrows! Green and Gold dragon flight dates have been shifted to the bottom of the page, where the (useless!) discord widget was located. Where the dragon flights were in the header, is now replaced by a Monthly Event box! This will be updated at the start of each month, with a fun mini-event you can take part in, if you want to! Thistle!

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

Place of Birth:

Searched By:

Weyrling Master Assistant
Primary Home:
High Reaches Weyr
Searched Date:
Eye Colour:
Hair Colour:
Copper, long, wavy
General Description:
Large, expressive hazel eyes that are bright with an odd mix of innocence and mischief.

Long coppery hair with a slight wave to it that reaches nearly to her waist. Other than the colour, she finds her hair rather plain. It’s not gloriously straight nor does it have amazing curls. When she’s not wearing it loose, she keeps her hair bound in a braid to keep it out of the way when doing chores or sleeping.

Petite and lithe, Vessaelia gives off the impression that she’s weak and helpless. While mostly true, she is still toned from lifting buckets of water for washing and scrubbing of laundry and assisting with bathing dragons when asked. She’s fond of her size and finds clothes fit her meagre curves nicely; she may not be as busty as some women flaunting what they have but she thinks she has a perfectly delightful cup size.
General Dressing Style:
She prefers dresses that are a bit tighter on top and flow loose at the waist, not really caring about colour, though she does own a plain smock for the times she’s doing laundry or a particularly distasteful chore. When necessary, she will put on pants or even shorts depending on the activity.
Katherine McNamara
Dresses and Pretty Things: Vessaelia was raised to be a lady and she likes being one and looking like one.

Bubble Baths and Perfumes: Bubble baths are a new luxury and Vessaelia loves them. Scented oils also make her feel luxurious and she saves up for both items every chance she can get.

Boys: She’s a bit boy crazy and gets crushes easily. She prefers older men, though, as they’ll protect her and give her a steady future. Or she did, until she met A'dis.

Sewing: While she is handy with a thread and needle and can hem and mend clothing, Vessaelia prefers to make little stuffed toys.
Sympathic: If someone is in need, even if it’s just to have someone listen to them, Vessaelia is there, offering proper words of encouragement or support.

Romantic: She held onto the belief she would marry and have a beautiful family for so long that she still believes she’ll meet someone and have a happily ever after. Seeing others in love can bring up hints of jealousy but in the end she loves seeing people find their mates and be happy.

Energetic: She’s a morning person, even an evening person. Vessaelia never seems to lack in energy and it shows in movement and her bubbly personality.
The Dark: There’s just something unsettling about the unknown. She doesn’t like not knowing if someone’s in the room with her or an animal slinking around. Her night vision isn’t the strongest and she’ll often stumble around and worry about tripping over something.

Bugs and Creepy Crawlies: She is very much a girly girl in all aspects and hates bugs. She’ll scream if one is on her or even in her room and isn’t a fan of playing in forests.

Being Told No: She knows her place in society but that still doesn’t mean she wants to be denied things she desires. Being the youngest, she got a lot of hand me downs and wasn’t able to get many things new. ‘No’ is one of her least favourite words and her perfect man would spoil her and dote on her endlessly –and be gorgeous, of course.
Fickle: Vessaelia falls for boys easily and crushes on nearly any handsome man she finds.

Superficial: Going along with her attention landing on handsome men, Vessaelia likes pretty objects and has a tendency to judge people or locations based on appearances.

Gullible: Due to her sheltered upbringing, Vessaelia is easily convinced of things if you tell her with a straight enough face and enough facts to support your claim.
Habits & Mannerisms:
Stammers when nervous or thinks she’s in trouble.
General Personality:
Vessaelia can be every bit the perfect lady that she’s meant to be when she’s supposed to be. She’s been brought up to know her place in the world is to marry, have kids, and look after both husband and children with meals, clothing, and a clean house. Whether she’s the one doing it all or overseeing a staff would depend on how well she was married off. For the most part, she’s good at keeping opinions to herself and knows when to speak or smile prettily but she can still give into the stereotypical anger of redheads when pushed.

When she’s not trying to impress her superiors with playing the role of the good student or good potential wife candidate, Vessaelia has a bit of playful side, though that comes out more when around people she trusts enough to call friends. She’s naturally shy and quiet around people she doesn’t know well and gets a bit nervous when too much attention is put on her when she’s not expecting it or simply doesn’t want it. Otherwise, she has a fairly bubbly personality and once she gets over her awkwardness or fear of being spoken to, she’ll chat endlessly and has plenty of smiles to give out.

Since moving to a Weyr, Vessaelia has found she enjoys the rush she gets from being, in her mind, naughty. Whether that’s something as innocent as sneaking out after curfew or something a bit more daring like flight mothing. She’s also come to realize she likes older men and after losing her virginity and enjoying casual sex her upbringing originally thought was sinful and made her a whore, Vessaelia’s taken her sneaking around to a fun new level that involves meeting up with sexy older men on occasion. Her Holder breeding still has her in moments of guilt or questioning what she’s doing so she has yet to full embrace this new side of herself but she’s enjoying the little bit of freedom she’s allowed herself to have.

Current: A'dis

Past: C'dhin, B'kit
Important History:
718 & Born: Vessaelia is the fourth and final child for her parents.

719-724 & 1-5: Nothing overly exciting happens in her toddler years though all of her siblings are taking lessons and playing with her less.

725-727 & 6-9: Begins taking her own lessons, focusing evenly on reading, writing, and math with a Harper and basic sewing and cooking with her mother to help prepare her for marriage proposals, making her seem more appealing.

728 & 10: Her brother marries early in the year and by the end of it he has become the lord of their small hold as their father dies from a fever in the winter.

730 & 12: Her eldest sister is married off to a nearby cothold. Vessaelia finds she doesn’t like her family continuing to fall apart but also is a bit jealous that everyone is finding someone to be with, even if it’s more political and not for love.

731 & 13 Her other sister has been promised to a minor lordling in Lemos through a series of letters. Vessaelia continues her lessons, knowing her brother would be giving her away soon as well.

732 & 14: Spring sees her sister packed up with a caravan heading to Limos. Vessaelia has a feeling this is the last time she’ll see her and asks to go as well. Her brother refuses, though he’s having trouble finding someone else to marry her off to. He debates sending her to a Hall as kitchen staff or to become a tailor.

733-735 & 15-17: Other than casual flirting at Gathers, Vessaelia hasn’t found anyone truly worth her attention though she teases her brother about running off with a local boy. Mostly she helps around the hold and assists with care for her nephews. Near the end of 735 her mother passes away.

736 & 18: Bluerider @”R’nd” Searches her on his stop to the surrounding holds of Bitra. She is reluctant to go as she has been primed for marriage and was looking forward to it if anyone would ever take her. Her brother makes the decision that she should go as it would be easier and cheaper for him.

737 & 19: The year starts with her realizing she had gotten a bit too tipsy at the New Year’s Eve gather the night before and lost her virginity to the cute and also drunk greenrider @”C’dhin”. She’s embarrassed and worries about her reputation until remembering where she now lives and that it would be normal. The year progresses with her slowly trying to adapt to her new life and the culture and on a dare even flight moths with another girl about her age. It was exhilarating, though a bit scary, and Vessaelia starts to realize that some aspects of the Weyr life isn’t so bad.

738 & 20: Continues to take classes, help in the laundry and kitchen areas when ordered to, and enjoys the occasional flight mothing to revel in the rush of fear of the unknown. Who will she end up with? How will he treat her? Will he be hot and fall madly in love with her afterward?

739 & 21: During a horrible and bloody Hatching, Vessaelia found herself Impressing to a bright green hatchling. She burst into tears--and not of joy. She was set on Impressing gold and now she had green. Weyrlinghood was not off to a good start for her.

740 & 22: It was a long uphill battle for her but Vessaelia survived weyrlinghood and at the end of the year, she gave A'dis a promise ring that she would always love and support him in all his actions, just as he did during her rough times.

742 & 24: A'dis is poisoned from the Murder Muffins that were sent out to many shiny riders. He thankfully survives and is treated to V'lia tending to him and fussing regularly.

743 & 25: A'dis is selected to be Weyrsecond for High Reaches when it opens at the end of the year. V'lia is beside herself with excitement and so proud of her man. However, she's left with the choice of moving with him or staying and continuing as a weyrling assistant for V'ra. She spoke with V'ra and the woman decided moving to High Reaches when they finished with their current class would be a good change.

744 & 26: Finally gets to join A'dis in High Reaches in month 8 after the weyrling class she Assisted on graduated.

It was a simple education, enough to call her educated and help entice someone to marry her. She has very neat penmanship but math makes her head swim.

Dragon Information
Wing and Rank:
Wingrider of
Adult Stats
28’9 foot length, 10' foot tall, with a 42' foot wingspan.
Clutch Details:
Gold Bedith x Bronze Syrendryth at Telgar Weyr on the 13.10.739 [Clutch Page] Telgar Weyr
Weyrlinghood sees a beautiful and vibrant green dragonet in Tiath; she has darker green feet, which slowly grow into a bright white-green before merging into a lovely lime coloured hide. Her body is small, easily recognised as a compact dragon. She has short legs, which tends to make her actually-propritinate wings, tail and neck look slightly longer than they should be. Her face is delicate and feminine, and while she has a generally quiet demeanor, she carries around with her a decided air of power and authority.
Despite her larger-end size, Tiath is notably short for her length; a good four feet shorter than to be expected, it gives her an interesting look, as the lack of height clearly originates from her shorter than normal legs. As a rule, it isn’t too noticeable when she is alone, but as soon as she stands beside another dragon, you can see it.
Tiath has a delicate tone, with a gentle and refined grasp of the verbal language. While she won’t ever drop a thesaurus on her companions, she won’t dumb down her speech, either. After all, why should seh resort to using the word that isn’t exactly what she meant, just because someone might not understand it? A listener, more than a speaker, Tiath enjoys taking in the sounds of speech around her — both dragon and human — and the new words that she can learn.

As a general rule, Tiath has a soft, sweetly spoken voice that does not give away the inner strength of the green. In moments where she strides into leadership, Tiath has a crisp tone and commandingly regal voice that snaps out and issues orders that others (especially her clutchmates) are prone to obeying. Not because they feel they should, but because they trust her to get them through whatever the scary situation is.
Despite the fact that she is ‘only a green’, Tiath is a dragon with a powerful personality. She exudes an air of confidence and authority that is very rarely seen in the green dragon population. She will never push herself onto someone (excluding Vessaelia) but her general demeanor means that most - even higher ranking dragons - execute her commands without stopping to think that they came from ‘just a green’. Because, as she grows, Tiath develops a combined taste for power and a good head for sound judgement, many of her clutchmates will trust her to keep them secure and safe and will follow her orders without question, especially in times of distress.
Habits/Mannerisms: Tiath gets frustrated by Vessaelia not taking a lady-like pride in her posture and the way she is viewed by the world. In all honesty, Tiath finds it kind of endearing that Vessaelia was so freaked out by Impressing green instead of gold, but likes to also point out that just because she’s green doesn’t mean Vessaelia can give up on all her Lady ambitions! If she walks the walk and talks the talk, does it matter what colour Tiath’s hide is?

Besides, who wants to be stuck on the Sands for half a turn every turn?

Freedom: Tiath loves the freedom that comes with being a green, especially when she sees - both directly and through Vessaelia - what her beautiful rider’s life would have been like if Tiath’s hide was gold. Flying, sunning, playing, and generally enjoying life without the constraints that she sees laid down upon the higher ranking dragons makes Tiath happy.

Being Dirty: Now, don’t get her wrong - Tiath isn’t above getting dirty in the name of duty, but she hates remaining dirty for any length of time, even if it means she has to cope with bathing herself (or in more normal terms, a dip in the lake without a human scrub) until such a time as Vessaelia is free to give her a good scrub and a nice relaxing oil.

Calm: Almost nothing can freak Tiath out; she retains a calm and commanding presence even in the most dire of situations; even if her own Vessaelia should end up in a life threatening scenario, Tiath will manage to keep her head, and, more than likely, come out on top with a happy ending (or at least, happy on her end).

Pride: In many ways, Tiath’s pride in herself and Vessaelia is a positive thing; however, there are many times when it can cause Vessaelia a headache, and get the dragon herself into trouble. Going toe-to-toe against just anyone isn’t always a good call, but no one said Pride was a virtue. Especially not in excess.
