Full Name:
Date of Birth:
27.01.725 AL - (19 years old)
Place of Birth:
Katila Weyr
Searched By:
Primary Home:
Benden Weyr
Searched Date:
Eye Colour:
Hazel - Green
Hair Colour:
Golden Brown
General Description:
Eyes: Her eyes are startlingly pale hazel-green, sometimes more gold depending on the light. If you look closely, Kestra's eyes have gold and orange-gold towards and around the iris. Her eyes are slightly almond-shaped with a noticeable sharp dip toward the tear duct. They align neatly under thick, dark eyebrows.
Hair: Before Impression, she'd grown her caramel coloured hair out to mid-back. After she Impressed Tizalth, she had it cut a bit shorter so that a quick braid would keep it down under her flight cap. It's soft, naturally wavy to curly if she doesn't take any time with it and sometimes unruly. It's already growing out, though. She's been using elaborate braids to secure her hair up for jamming her flight cap on.
General Appearance:
On first impression, newly minted Wingrider Kestra is a delicate looking, almost fragile. Her eyes are wide and bright and her face fresh and eager, full of post-graduation wonder. She's mostly leg, lean, with narrower hips than she'd like but she'll carry most of her weight in her buttocks and thighs. With her duties as a dragonrider, she'll remain slim and muscular throughout her dragonrider days and in excellent shape.
Her fingers are notably calloused from playing gitar even if she tries very hard to keep her hands moisturised, they're still a bit rough to the touch. She practices hand exercises each morning and whenever she can fit them in to keep herself limber and agile. She says it also helps her with quick tack exchange and keeps her fingers agile.
In all honesty, she wanted to go to Harper Hall when she turned sixteen (if they'd let her in, if not, she'd have to find something else) after they returned from Katila. She made liberal use of practising in her free time. When she'd approached one of the Harpers at a very young age, he'd been looking for a challenge. She responded with more than a little glee and a whole lot of natural talent. Before Tizalth had come into her life, that had been her aim and she'd been fiercely determined to be more than excellent.
From Weyrlinghood mishaps, she's got a few scars. One is on her lower back, another at her shoulder blade. Neither of them was very long and both have healed nicely. One day, they'll turn white, so she's not too worried about them. There are other nicks and scratches, some from learning how to knife fight - it seemed like something she ought to know, right along with self-defence.
General Dressing Style:
Off-duty, Kestra is usually dressed in greens, browns, with occasional oranges and reds, complemented by other harmonious shades. Her style of dress tends toward flowing but not flamboyant, quiet, earthy tones. She's been known to brighten things up when it comes to a Gather, usually choosing brighter blues, greens, accented with fabric belts in oranges or golds. She enjoys dresses as much as breeches and prefers clothing that allows for lots of movement. Her breeches are usually deep black greens to browns or charcoal and for footwear, she favours soft boots to anything else. Paler colours are worn in the hottest months.
She has a Gather outfit that consists of a flowing green shirt trimmed in gold and blue, a pair of green-black breeches and a pair of suede boots that match the green-black of the shirt.
When no one who cares is watching, she'll ride out the light flannel long-sleeve and a tank-top.
Comfort is almost as important as klah.
She has a distinctive set of freckles/moles that are scattered up her face. But her most startling features are her vivid and captivating eyes. They much they have sparkling good humour to them and perhaps a secret or two lurking within them.
Laneya Grace
Gitar: The gitar she made a few turns ago is ageing nicely and starting to become more mellow as it does. Now settled in their new weyr, her case and gitar stand have a prominent place in her little home.
Singing: It's nearly as complex as anything she's had to learn during her Weyrlinghood and a good cup of klah seems to ease her throat and help her warm-up. Even if she'll never get to the Hall and become a Harper, she's allowed to sing (and play gitar). She does love to sing ballads, hum arias, or belt them out as she oils Tizalth.
Klah: She enjoys her klah sweet, with a bit of cream to make it and hot.
Love of learning/Educating herself: Kestra loves learning new things, no matter what it is or how minor it might be. She takes great pains to learn something new. Her standby has been learning knitting. It keeps her fingers nimble.
Friendliness: Kestra is a gentle soul, easy to make friends and keep them as she's pretty easy going.
Sleeping alone: As long as she can remember, she's wanted to cuddle up with someone at night. Now, she has Tizalth, even though she's far from the wee dragonet she once was.
Pickled anything: She hates the texture, she hates the scent, and the crunchy ones just ...ew. Please, no.
Driven/Focused: Sometimes she can be a bit too driven or focused on one particular goal.
Intense: She can get really intense when she wants to and sometimes it's a bit scary.
Superstitious: She's seen dragonets, old Dragonriders and their dragons between, she's seen what happens if the rider doesn't follow as well. They're haunted, broken without their lifemates. She thinks the dragons somehow linger, intangible until that rider dies. Something must survive between and death itself - may be the essence of dragon and rider.

She has her own pre-flight check ritual down to run on automatic. Breaking it is such bad luck.
Habits & Mannerisms:
Carries a spare pick around to tap on when she's nervous
General Personality:
Kestra is exceptionally driven as a student of gitar and voice, well, as driven as one could be. Her memory is near eidetic, which helps her in her studies as well as in her performance as a dragonrider. She pours everything she has into her music when she gets to play. It took her a turn and a half to get her gitar built under the watchful eye of Ista Weyr’s Harper. She finally got the gitar sounding the way that she wanted it, though many prototypes went through her hands before she was satisfied with her instrument's sound and look.
Her ability to one-track what she's doing can border on obsessive and someone usually has to break her concentration to get her to move onto something else. This was something Tizalth took to doing more often than not as Kestra needed.
Her passion for music translates well to she has warms everything she does and her perfectionist streak means she'll not deviate from her assigned task until it's as perfect as she can make it. She really needs to learn to let go and not be so singularly focused when it comes to what she's doing. Being a perfectionist and her own worst critic means she's seldom satisfied with what she's doing. She is the kind of person who has a great need to give 900% all the time - an intensity that is rather exhausting to watch. Her energy reserves run deep, though, and she tends to make the most of them.
Despite her driven nature, she is kind, warm, and loving - if very intense. And when her walls are breached and she doesn't have to be on, these qualities unfold. She doesn't have many friends and notes that dealing with more than a few close friends is an ordeal by itself. There is a part of her that yearns for that easy camaraderie she sees others have with each other. It's not that she's shy, she just needs a good friend to pull her from her own little world. Once that's done, her laughter is pure joy.

Past Lovers/Partners:None really, though she fooled around a bit and isn't a virgin. It was casual and pleasant, also p. mandatory. Her first time was with an older dragonrider in a non-flight session.
Probably more than a few, though she doesn't know them.
Current Lovers/Partners: Um...might be a cute thing with bronzerider A'tay going on, but she's fine if it goes nowhere. Super lowkey and sweet friendship, which is everything she needs right now. She doesn't press and is content to just be a friend.

Her first meeting with T'pel resulted in her slipping on some water and taking a dive off his ledge. Then her dragon rose in the middle of the night and was caught by T'pel's brown. Now they're slowly taking to each other.
Not Yet.
She had a decent crush on A'tay for most of their Weyrlinghood but it was pretty one-sided. So Kestra packed up her things and went to Benden to try and get her head out of a relationship that was never going to happen.
She's basically an open book and pretty much everyone who wasn't blind could see she had a thing for A'tay. She didn't advertise her move or her request for transfer to Benden, though, just quietly left one morning with her things in crates. Sometimes, she hopes for a letter but that's probably not gong to happen.

In any case, Benden needed green riders and she wasn't about to not heed that call.

Her first Flight - caught by T'pel.
Important History:
725 & 0-6:
Born healthy to Greenrider Strellia, passed her to a creche wet nurse as she had any of her other progeny. The unnamed half-siblings just sorta spread anywhere and everywhere they could if they survived the landslide in 734 and migrated North.
Kestra was a feisty baby, happy child who was eager to learn and everything.
731 & 6: Moving to a new Weyr was exciting! She went with the Ista crowd and was excited for it all. New friends were an option, too, and that was kinda awesome.
At 6 turns, she stole one of the Harper's gitars and was found picking at the strings and listening intently. That began a gleeful six turn mentorship until she was twelve turns.
731 & 7-12: School, school, helping the Weyrfolk do their jobs - broad spectrum fix-it.
737 - At 12: She Stood for a few Hatchings beginning on her twelfth turn and while she didn't Impress, she realised that she wanted to be a rider.
Kestra's Harper fixation wavered and then shattered when a blue dragon named Sondrith convinced her that she would be a wonderful rider. Every Hatching that she didn't Impress, Sondrith encouraged her to keep Standing.
In her talks with Sondrith, she realised that Standing didn't mean that she had to give up her passion for music. She could be a passionate rider who happened to play gitar and sing.
Each Hatching made her more and more sure that blue Sondrith really was correct.
738 & 13-14:
Very early, Nadioth and Rhezalth's clutch began to hatch. There was...more violence this time around and one girl got her face eaten off and another died from her wounds as well. While she was gawking, horrified, at all of that, she Impressed the very regal green Tizalth, who gently bumped into her middle and when they looked into each other's eyes, Impression was made in a wash of rainbowed dragon eyes.
She entered Weyrlinghood with wonder at having Tizalth in her mind, the drive and ambition to excel at her training. That's what the green pair did, they trained hard and became a force to be reckoned with in the sky. Kestra's excellent memory and recall meant she gave fantastic visuals when it comes to relaying information and excellent reference points.
Her first flight on Tizalth was triumphant as she launched them into the sky, they dropped and then flew. It was an incredible experience that became drills and formations, betweening, and more drills. It wasn't easy work but by Faranth it was satisfying, just as satisfying as playing a gitar for the sheer pleasure of it.
She's friendly with pretty much everyone accepting of her friendship. Tizalth's need to connect with all of her clutchmates kinda forces her to forge ahead with getting to know people. Playful Tizalth is engaging in the best of ways. Kestra does notice A'tay and his bronze. He's pretty friendly and she's pretty charmed, though she doesn't say anything about it. Tizalth, however, isn't at all shy about admiring Xyxyth.
738 & 13-14:
Wildfires on Ista Island were terrifying and both rider and dragon assisted as much as possible to help for as long as they could.
740 & 15:
Sometime in 740ish, she struck up a gentle sort of companionship with A'tay and his lovely bronze. Her Tizalth enjoyed lounging with Xyxyth and was always sweet to him.
There's a little handholding, awkwardness, and it's lovely now that their dragons are no long taking up all their time. She's very respectful of his space and feelings. There's no rush at all. She intends to take her time and finds that she's content with friendship edging a little into flirting. In the end it'll just be friendship.
Getting their own permanent weyr was pretty much the highlight of the turn. She put her marks on making it her own and it became a cool paradise. The heavy fabric that separated the dragon ledge from her room had been taken down in favour of a curtain of shining and interesting beads. She absolutely loved it.
Graduation was a heady experience that left her glowing for days and it was as if she were walking on air.
Faxxonth, Nerreh's dragon won gold Thallyath's Maiden Flight, something which amused her more than it shocked her. Sly Faxxonth was a blue! It became apparent that her amusement should have been shock or horror with the way people were carrying on. Certainly, there wouldn't be a gold or bronzes out of the pairing but there'd be dragons from it and, so she thought, any dragon was a welcome thing. It seemed to not be the case for Thallyath.
She didn't expect the dragonets to be as bad off as they were. If the Touching had shown anything, it was that these dragonets seemed poisoned in mind by their own dam's fears and hate. Kestra didn't realise how affected she was by it until much later.
The Hatching was death and weakened, thin little ones. Some Impressed, some died. It left her in grief and ever mindful of her own attitude. It wasn't Nerreh's fault any more than it was Faxxonth's. He was cannier than the others, clearly, or another would have caught her. As for Nerreh, well, good for her to be found worthy of such a fine dragon. Colour should never matter when it came to a dragon's choice. After all, didn't they say that a dragon was always right when it came to their choice?
741 & 16: After it was clear her relationship with A'tay wasn't going anywhere, she transferred to Benden Weyr and met brownrider T'pel. She fell off his weyr ledge into the water below and he rescued her.
741 & 16: Late 741, Tizalth rose late and T'pel's brown caught her.

She's always been quick when it comes to learning figures or how to read and write. Her writing is neat and very precise almost up to Harper accuracy and clarity. Kestra has a great ability to learn by ear when it comes to songs and her memory is near eidetic. She's rather contrived a sort of filing system in her head for important things, places, or people. This comes in handy for betweening as she's got her mental picture sharp but not too sharp.
She has been playing around with gitar since one of the Harpers used one to enforce knowledge by ballad on them early on in life. He sat her down and helped her make her first gitar, one she was constantly working on until it sounded and looked just the way she wanted.
She wanted to become a Harper but she knew how unlikely that would be, so instead, she just learned out to entertain and make her own songs. Some were gossipy, some hilarious, some sad, but most were pleasant and soothing.
There was nothing like sitting down and having two gitar or violin players get into a musical duel. It rivalled gearing up to fly and then taking that leap.

Dragon Information
Wing and Rank:
Wingrider of
Adult Stats
28' foot length, 7.5ft foot tall, with a 47' foot wingspan.
Clutch Details:
Nadioth x Rhezalth at Ista Weyr on the 739.05.28 AL [Clutch Page] As the Meteor green finally escaped, she toppled into the sand and apparently breathed in, so that when she lifted her head up she sneeze – a good six times! – her tiny body trembling with the force of her expelled breaths. While Meteor green was busy trying to blow her brains out of her nostrils, the Weather egg toppled over, landing against the Eclipse egg and cracking them both open. Pushing his nose out between the pieces of shell, the Weather bronze looked around regally, the markings on his face making it look like his eyebrows were raised, before he quite literally stepped out of his egg shells and walked with a sashaying step towards some of the male candidates. On his way, he ran into the Meteor green and he paused… until she sneezed on him. With a look of utter shock, Weather bronze sat back heavily on his haunches, and stared at her. Chirping cheerfully, the Meteor green bounced forward and booped her nose against her brother’s before turning and prancing off to Impress with very little fanfare.
As her baby fat gave way to lean, chiselled muscles, and her growth accelerated horizontally, it became apparent that she was going to be very tall - nearly the height of a small blue. Her tail was far longer than most of her fellow greens and Kestra likened it to a noodle and vain as she is, Tizalth shot that down. Most notably, she has markings around her eyes (a light, soft green) with a base of darker green that deepens near to black as it reaches her feet.
Her claws have some gradient to them, going from darker to lighter green tips. There are some Kelly greens present that fades up into a soft golden green that runs along the undersides of her wings and along her tail. The colours are much brighter than her adult colouration, though the deep green of her wings stayed the same just somehow more muted. She is, blissfully, without blemish.
Her markings essentially stayed the same, though it could be said they muted just a touch, giving her adult hide colouration a softer look. Topping out a 7.5ft in height, she uses that to her advantage, often doing her best to give a royal stink-eye when she feels it appropriate. She has never been and never will be a bulky dragon for all that her 29ft puts her among the largest of greens (to her annoyance, she isn't the largest). Her tail takes up most of her length and her wingspan is an impressive 48ft. They give her the best of stamina and speed for her frame while that long tail helps her pull off amazing turning radius while in the air.
Effervescent, vivacious, warm, sensuous, velvety, smokey.
Tizalth is a regal thing in mind and in bearing. One would think she was a gold for all the fuss she can make. For all her pomp and royal attitude, she is a gentle, loving dragon, all heart, who'd do just about anything to make someone's day better.
-- Her tail is nigh prehensile and she enjoys using to grab things from towels to buckets and in a splashing war, she tends to reign supreme.
-- She speaks her mind to just about anyone and has no filter when she does so. Oddly, she's incredibly polite about it.
-- She has a special fondness for snuggling up to others in the evening hours or whenever she's finished preening after a good oiling. It doesn't bother her that the oil on her hide is being shared. The little cousins do it all the time.
Fish: They might be tiny and barely a snack, but she really loves them. It shows in the glossiness of her hide. This doesn't mean that she doesn't eat bovine because she does.
Prancing and Jumping: She has a habit of prancing about when she's in a particularly good mood and that leads to jumping - usually in puddles. She does have a fantastic sense of space, which means nothing gets broken.
Vocalizing: She hums, clicks, rumbles, trills, and is generally a musical sort of dragon. Her croons are quite supportive when her rider is singing and she'll vocalise pretty well for any sort of music.
Being ignored: Tizalth just wants a warm welcome, her people and her compliments, which is rather...feline of her. When she was smaller, she once stole Kestra's class notes and proceeded to sit on them. It took her rider hella sweet talk and a bucket of fish to get her to relinquish them.
When her prey is predictable: She's a predator and gets bored with penned animals easily. Wild herds are perfect.
Protective: She's protective of her Wing, her fellow Weyrling class, and her Weyr.
Adaptable: If there's one thing that's going to make a difference it's her ability to seamlessly adapt to unexpected changes around her.
Protective: In the face of danger, she protects those she can and will press forward when the time is right. It takes a certain kind of breed to be able to hold the line and not run.
Gossipy: She likes her gossip - but rarely is the gossiper. Tizalth enjoys being the ear, though.
Cheeky: She is irreverent, forward, and sassy af. It's done without malice, though. The green might be sassy but she's isn't mean, she's just super playful.
