Place of Birth:

Weyrsecond of Igen Weyr
Primary Home:
Igen Weyr
Searched Date:
N/A Weyrbred
Eye Colour:
Hair Colour:
Blonde, short, messy
General Description:
Blonde, tousled locks used to be kept on the shorter side. Since Impressing and realising he wanted to further find his own identity, he has been growing his hair out to help distinguish himself from his his brother and father. Once it became long enough to pull back, he started wearing it in that manner. At times he'll wear it loose but he's still adjusting to it and the looks he gets so it's tied back. At the end of 743, A'tay decided it was time to go back to a shorter style given the dry heat of Igen.

Thanks to now taking care of a dragon, Ayontay has started to shed the baby fat and is toning up. Like his older brother, he's had a growth spurt and a bit on the leaner side. He's also grown into his facial features. Ears that once seemed too large now look properly proportionate, as do his eyebrows. They're still bushy but they don't seem quite so obvious any more and don't detract from bright, vivid blue eyes. As of the end of 743, A'tay has taken to keeping a little scruff with the possibility of a proper goatee one day.
General Dressing Style:
Ayontay has a simple taste in clothing that usually leaves him in comfortable and practical pants with a short-sleeved shirt in varying colours. The one item of clothing he prefers and is always kept in pristine condition is a deep red jacket in a similar style to one worn by his father.

One other important piece that Ayontay always wears is a necklace that is a simple piece of bark wrapped up in the leather cord that keeps it around his neck. To most it would be a strange accessory but to Ayontay, it is a reminder of one of his favourite places in Katila; a large tree that he used to climb and spend hours in.
Austin Butler
Stories: Not so much the fantasy ones like Rhaedalyn likes to tell but the ones the old dragonriders tell about their time before the Plague. Sure, some might be exaggerated, but Ayontay still thinks they're cool.

Wood-working: He's still learning the trade but he enjoys the fine detail work and concentration that comes with the job. He mostly makes simple objects or lends a hand to those more skilled in the field. His goal is to make toy figurines.

Hiking/Exploring: Like any curious child, Ayontay likes to see how far he's allowed to venture out and what's around him. Nature is relaxing and he likes meandering through forests and discovering what secrets they hide.
Resourceful: Ayontay is good at using what he has and making the best out of a situation.

Respectful: His mother raised him to respect his elders and the heirarchy of the Weyr; which has been in place for so long and seems to work so he doesn't have a problem in doing so.

Observant: Not being as actively social as others, Ayontay notices body language or even secret glances or get-togethers while he sits back. He likes seeing how the bigger picture functions with its details.
Laundry: Sometimes helping his mother or in the creche meant running dirty clothes to the laundry workers or assisting them in scrubbing stains. Some things are forever stained on the mind and he has learned to carefully bundle up a pile of clothes.

Swimming/Deep Water: Before he learned to swim, some of the older kids picked on him and kept dunking him under the water, watching him flounder. While he'll go to the lake with friends and even sit in the shallows, Ayontay hates water deep enough that can cover his head.

Klah: Not only is it disgusting, he can't help but wonder why people would put something in their body to change how they function. A proper night's rest is more than enough to get you moving in the morning.
Timid: Not the most outgoing of boys, Ayontay can be hesitant to approach those that out rank him or simply intimidate him.

Obvious: Ayontay isn't that great at hiding what he's thinking or feeling. Gawking at someone? They'll know. Curious what someone is up to? They'll notice him watching.

Superstitious: For the most part, Ayontay knows they aren't real and it won't matter if he crosses paths with a black cat or not but he still can't help but have the old rhymes run through his head when he sees it happening or even go out of his way to avoid taking a certain path.
Habits & Mannerisms:
Bites his nails or touches his lips when thinking or nervous.
General Personality:
Ayontay is a pretty laidback boy that almost prefers to observe than participate when given the chance. It's not that he's anti-social or thinks himself too good to interact with certain people, but he wants to know more about someone before letting them get close. To him, it simply seems to be a waste of energy to get to know someone and let them in only to have them betray you or not want to be friends anymore. Overall, he's easy to get along with since he's not the confrontational type but the amount of close or dear friends can be counted on one hand.

Having been raised by his mother and the women that worked in the creche, Ayontay finds it easier to get along with women. While he would occasionally tag along after the older boys when they got together to play and would shadow the more recently Impressed dragonriders, he always felt more comfortable in the presence of women. Boys sometimes confuse him with their shows of dominance and what could trigger an array of emotions. Ayontay often finds it funny that women are said to be the more sensitive sex that had emotional fits at the drop of a feather since he found them to be strong and rather stable.

Perhaps having so many mothers raise him is also the reason why he's so good with his sister, Wynera. Ayontay fell in love with her the moment she was born and was always there to help look after her. While he wouldn't refer to himself as someone that's good in a crisis or even a solid shoulder to lean on, Ayontay does try to be there for his closest friends, lend support how he can and generally being a bit of a mother to them with making sure they've eaten or remembered their jacket if it's a cooler day and they're about to go off to explore.

Current lover: Zelana

Flight partners: Cazan, X'siar
Important History:
724 & Born: Tyeravi carried on a short but sweet relationship with R'nd but knowing his issue with commitment, she never mentioned the child was his. He is named after a relative to Tyeravi but years later, people assume his name comes from his father’s dragon, Ayyonth, who was actually hatched three years later.

725-728 & 1-4: Spends time playing in the creche or in his mom's care. He's a pretty quiet child and stays out of everyone's hair.

729 & 5: After another fun romp with R'nd, Tyeravi gives birth to a daughter, Wynera. Ayontay is excited to have a sibling.

730-733 & 6-9: Ayontay has taken easily to being a big brother and helps look after his sister as much as he can when he's not off playing or having basic lessons with a Harper.

734 & 10: The landslide happens at the start of the year. Old enough to realize what level of devastation the diaster has brought, Ayontay does his best to keep a brave face for his mom and sister but inside he's falling apart and wants someone to comfort him. He's lost friends and dragons he liked to play with and saw families of friends torn apart and he doesn't know how to help. While he had always been a bit excited for it, Ayontay is now more than ready for the move North after so many good memories being tainted by the landslide.

735 & 11: Continues to help wherever he can in Telgar Weyr to make it feel more like a home for everyone, especially his family. Sure his mom has male companions, but never truly having a male role model in their lives, Ayontay tries to pick up the slack, especially for his sister, making sure she's spoiled. For all of his help and hard work, his mom gets him a firelizard egg that soon hatches to reveal a blue firelizard.

736-737 & 12-13: With two more Weyrs about to open up, Ayontay begs his mom for them to stay at Telgar. He wants to see more of the world but they're finally settled in and Telgar feels like home. Besides, his dad stayed and while he's not as confident and brave as his half-brother, T'ryn, to announce who he is to R'nd, Ayontay likes observing the bluerider and learning who his dad is without any sort of filter or awkwardness.

738 & 14: Finally decides to start Standing, even though his best friend, Madiquel, doesn’t think she’ll ever try. Stands for both Telgar clutches that year but doesn’t Impress. Near the end of the turn R’nd approaches him to say he knows he’s Ayontay’s father. Ayontay’s more than stunned and suddenly awkward about it but they work at building some sort of relationship.

739 & 15: Stands at Aradissicath’s clutch in Fort but sadly doesn’t Impress. He would have liked it to be that clutch so he could be in the same Weyr as Madiquel, realising all the more that he definitely has a crush on the girl. Now that he’s committed to the idea of Standing, Ayontay is ready to be shipped off to the other Weyrs when needed. Shortly after that, Ayontay Impresses to bronze Xyxyth in Ista, becoming A'tay.

740 & 16: A'tay tries to confess his crush on Madiquel at Telgar's Gather by giving her a thimble he called a 'kiss' based on a story he loved when a kid. He flees before she gets a chance to reply but she never mentions it again... either because she doesn't feel the same, hasn't figured out the meaning, or because she accidentally Impressed at the Ista Hatching she was watching from the sands. A'tay was already stressed from that Hatching thanks to defending Nerreh and Faxxonth and now he worries about the weak dragonet. He had considered transferring to Fort after his graduation but now isn't sure thanks to Maidquel being in Ista.

741 & 17: Meets Zelana. She offers to teach him to cook and swim and a bit more when A'tay gives in to his feelings and kisses her. He loses his virginity and gains a girlfriend--mostly in name only. He's Zelana's favourite 'Pickle' but the relationship is very much open and she has other lovers.

742 & 18: Avoids being attacked when the mystery murderer was on the rampage but did come close to losing siblings and Zelly.

743 & 19: Unexpectedly wins Malvayth's unexpected Flight that took place on T'ryn's birthday. A few months later as they're helping clean up Igen Weyr, Xyxyth catches his first green giving A'tay his first experience with a man, X'siar.

Dragon Information
Wing and Rank:
[Select] of
Adult Stats
38’6 foot length, 20' foot tall, with a 58'3 foot wingspan.
Clutch Details:
Gold Nadioth x Bronze Rhezalth at Ista Weyr on the 28.05.739 [Clutch Page]
Xyxyth hatches as a beautiful little bronze, with a mostly solid coloured hide, it wouldn’t be overly remarkable if it weren’t for the markings that look like sunlight through water on his head, tail and feet. Contrasting shades of white-bronze and green-bronze stand out starkly against his base hide.
In build, Xyxyth is a very compact little dragon, with a short neck and tail, chunky legs, and a broad head. His wings are broad, and the membrane of them seems thicker than normal, allowing less light to transcend through when he is in flight.
Growth comes fast and hard to Xyxyth! He will grow quite a bit faster than his clutch mates, keeping Ayontay on his toes as the youngster does his best to keep up with Xyxyth’s required bathing and oiling. Due to his extreme growth rate, Xyxyth will shed earlier than his fellows, at about six or seven months of age, revealing his new hide beneath. Said hide is the same base colour as his Hatching, but the water-marks have smeared, making his entire body look like you’re viewing it through the dappled light of a forest. Shades of green and brown mix with various shades of bronze to make both a nondescript but also beautiful hide.

The thick membrane of his wings remains, causing some concern about how it will affect him in prolonged flight, such as fighting Threadfall or mating. The exact reality of this is to be determined; the thickness is not so much more than ‘normal’ dragon wings, but enough to be of note to the Weyrlingmaster. In the meantime, the sturdiness of his wings is revealed in their lack of tearing or being easily injured. Additionally, he appears to have good control when flying in weather that would usually down a dragon, such as heavy storms and strong winds.
Xyxyth has a mild, low voice that is warm and soothing. Even when issuing commands, his tone implies more that he’d be disappointed if you didn’t do as he asked, rather than issuing threats. Xyxyth also maintains good emotional control of his voice; he will very rarely give away that he is angry or excited via his tone, and indeed, it will take some time for Ayontay to learn to pay extreme attention to what his dragon is feeling, not what he is saying.
Such cheerful joy in a dragon is usually associated with the dimwitted or the ‘lower’ colours; contrary to expectations, Xyxyth is neither dimwitted nor a chromatic dragon. Indeed, the bronze seems to vastly enjoy turning people’s expectations for him on their head. He is an intelligent and outgoing beast with a cheerful personality and a love for life and friends. He is outgoing, engaging, and playful.

Growing into one of the largest bronzes - at least in present times - Xyxyth has a big personality to match it; an absolute shameless flirt, Xyxyth will make sure everyone enjoys his company, or at least enjoys watching him make their companions squirm. He is a kind hearted soul, and will never purposefully hurt or upset someone with his attentions, but it isn’t out of the question for him to go a little beyond the line, if he gets carried away. Should that happen, he will do his best to make the individual understand how sorry he is, usually through actions.

Cheerful as he is, Xyxyth has a demanding streak a mile wide; he expects things from those around him, and he expects them to meet his expectations. Xyxyth carefully analises - through his social studies of observance - how much it is he can expect from those around him. As a result, while those who are at the receiving end may think they’re getting a rough deal, Xyxyth will never ask more of someone than he honestly believes they can achieve. As a result, it will be fairly easy for Ayontay to figure out who his dragon has very little opinion of!
Habits/Mannerisms: Likes making up fun nicknames for teasing Ayontay; Has nicknames for everyone he becomes attached to - some serious, some hilarious; has a tendency to whistle quietly to himself.

Exploring: Much like Ayontay, Xyxyth enjoys exploring and adventure. He likes getting out to see the world, and can’t wait for the time when he is free to do so - such as graduating Weyrlinghood! Flight is an important part of that, and he is keen and willing when in the sky. Traveling between is not something that he fears, but he respects the fear it inspires in others and does his best to fly straight when needed, and to reassure passengers when they feel insecure.

Oceans: Xyxyth loves the water, but he loves even more the wild saltiness of the ocean. He loves the way the tides come in and flow out, and he loves the way it smells, the sounds it makes, and the crunch of the sand under his toes. Luckily for Ayontay, Xyxyth is more than happy to swim by himself while his rider hangs out on the beach or in the shallows. He enjoys swimming with company, but is also more than happy to trill at the fishes and entertain himself.

Flirting: Xyxyth is an absolute flirt, and is completely shameless when it comes to bestowing praises and attention upon anyone, male or female, dragon or human. His cheerful nature and easy showering of attention upon others will no doubt cause Ayontay no small amount of embarrassment at points, but that honestly just amuses Xyxyth and encourages him more.

Procrastination: It is best that tasks are dealt with in a swift and sure manner, whether they be distasteful tasks, or emergency situations or anything in between. It is important to take stock of a situation, but not to the extent that one doesn’t react at all. Simple tasks are best taken care of and moved on from; leaving them to stew on a to-do list is a waste of energy and mind-space.

Timidity: It’s a part of Ayontay that Xyxyth is determined to help him master. Being timid will not get them anywhere in life, and Xyxyth is convinced that both he and Ayontay can go anywhere they please, if they work hard enough to achieve it.

Sour Suds: Life is too short and too amazing to spend it sulking or moping! Those folks who simply cannot see the ray of light shining in their direction really are a sad bunch, and Xyxyth ranges from feeling sorry for them, to being irritated by them. It’s okay to have a down day, but really! Things just aren’t that bad, and there is always some reason to smile!

Observing: Xyxyth is an excellent observer; he takes in the goings on around him with a quiet, thoughtful air that is often missed by those too busy talking or acting. Xyxyth considers it a great skill to take stock of a situation before acting, though he is not one to procrastinate.

Social: Contrary to many bronzes, Xyxyth is extremely sociable and holds no real recognition to colour hierarchy or social norms. He will give most creatures a chance to be interesting, and those that he finds so, he will seek out for future conversations and sociable sessions. He finds firelizards to be charming and enjoys playing with them, usually by flicking his tail or pawing at them and watching them dodge his careful movements.

Authentic: Xyxyth is a genuine, charming dragon. He enjoys life, he enjoys company, and he enjoys being happy. He isn’t one to hide behind a mask, and encourages those he knows and loves to step out and be themselves, too, whatever that may make them. Better to be you, and be happy, than to hide and be miserable!

Demanding: If he thinks it is something that Ayontay can do, but is unwilling or not confident enough to act on himself, Xyxyth will be relentless in making the boy step up and take action. Additionally, he will make the same demands on his clutchmates all during Weyrlinghood, and in the future, hold his wingmates to high expectations - though never more than he believes they are capable of achieving.

Impish: It isn’t something that a lot of individuals will see, but Xyxyth’s has an incredible impish side; he enjoys being naughty and teasing Ayontay and takes a great delight in making his rider squirm. He is never mean or cruel, and will never do anything that will actually upset Ayontay, but harmless fun? Oh, he is so there and he is going to make Ayontay groan in exasperation at his lame jokes and silly teasing.

Curiosity: Xyxyth is a nosy bastard! He enjoys learning about anything, and everything, often asking questions and demanding explanations about odd or random things. He wants to understand not only the world around him, but the people and the dragons that are within it.
Flight Records
743.08.03: Gold Malvayth of Cazan at Telgar Weyr
743.10.05: Green Solenath of X'siar at Igen Weyr
Pet Details

In 735, Impresses to a blue firelizard he names Shadow. Shadow is dark blue and on the plump side as he's a spoiled boy that begs prettily for treats. He's also a little sneaky boy and will steal nibbles of food when he can. He's playful and only a troublemaker in a mostly harmless sense. He's excellent at delivering letters and very social.
