Latest Updates

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!

Ferra
Melissa Collazo
Full Name:
Ferra
Nicknames:
Date of Birth:
16.11.722 - (22 years old)
Place of Birth:
Nabol Hold
Searched By:
R'dal of Blue Edath
Pronounced:
Rank:
Candidate
Primary Home:
Ista Weyr
Searched Date:
20.07.740
Player:
Appearance
Eye Colour:
Brown
Height:
5'3"
Hair Colour:
Long Dark Brown
Build:
Dainty
General Description:
Ferra has a dainty and delicate looking build, but her hands are rough from work, and she has numerous tiny little scars from cuts and scrapes acquired from her start in life as a drudge. She's stronger than she looks, and has a sense of balance good enough that it lends an almost graceful appearance to her movements. She moves around quietly, frequently slouches or otherwise tries to shrink in on herself to appear even smaller than her already petite stature.

Her face is usually carefully closed off and neutral, especially when she's unhappy. When she does smile, her entire face lights up. She is exceptionally bad at faking smiles and it is one of the few time she looks pained.
General Dressing Style:
When she's alone or just spending time with other women, she prefers to wear nice dresses that make her feel pretty and flow nicely when she dances. Otherwise she tries to wear nice but plain practical clothes and frequently wears things she's mended to try to extend their life.
Melissa Collazo
Personality
Likes:
Learning - Growing up without any resources has her appreciating learning new things now that she can more easily attend classes and read books.
Feeling Pretty - As much as she doesn't like the attention it draws, Ferra likes to feel pretty and especially is fond of dresses.
Dancing - She hardly ever indulges in it, but she likes to twirl about to music, usually when she's alone and thinks no one can see her or with her family.
Peasant Food - She secretly likes and even misses the foods she ate as a drudge, especially a peasant stew from Nabol.
Strengths:
Hard Working - She has good work ethic and takes initiative when she finds tasks that need to be done.
Enduring - She got a lot of practice tolerating the bullshit of those more powerful than her.
Dislikes:
Idleness - Always do things. If you can lean you can clean sort of mentality.
The Rich - They cannot be trusted, because wealth clearly corrupts.
Attention - It's bad news when people start paying attention to you, especially men.
Crying - Can't let them know they get to you.
Flaws:
Suspicious - She's much more nervous and wary of men than she is of women, but anyone who is in a position she perceives as more powerful than hers is worthy of suspicion.
Compliant - She grew up doing what she was told, and she naturally wants to be good and helpful for her family's sake. She's easy to boss around.
Habits & Mannerisms:
When she's nervous she becomes quiet and begins looking around for places to hide. When she's especially distressed she tends to shut down and puts on her best bored neutral face until she can get time alone to have a vent cry.

Otherwise she always needs to have something to do, whether it's read, take notes, clean, walk, or even pick at her nails. She tries to be a good listener, but has a hard time focusing if she's not doing something with her hands.
General Personality:
Ferra wants so very much to be good. She is kind and caring, and does not have a vindictive bone in her body. Even with all of the wariness she has learned throughout the years as a drudge, she cannot stand to see people in pain and would even try to find help for someone she considers to be a terrible person. She isn't so much forgiving as she is incapable of harboring malice within herself. She's not even fond of spreading hurtful rumors or stories and feels uncomfortable at the thought of making fun of someone. Hopefully one day she can set a good example for her siblings and through hard work find herself in a better position to help all of them.

She prefers to keep to herself or spend time with other women, and though Ferra certainly seen some eye catching young men and women, she's been too wary to try anything, especially while she has so much else to focus on. Since being Searched and moving to the Weyr with her siblings, Ferra has dedicated most of her time to attending classes and doing chores to ensure that she and her siblings are considered useful enough to be allowed to stay. She still retains a little bit of fear that this is all too good to be true and will one day end, so for now she's trying to make the best of it that she can.

Secrets:
She fooled around with another girl once, but it doesn't count as sex because it was with a girl! So she's still good right? Not talking about it though just in case. She also once kissed a boy, but was so nervous that she ran away before anything else could happen. Still not talking about it.
Known:
Important History:
16.11.722 and 0 - Born the fourth child to Mita, a drudge in the household of the Lord Holder of Nabol.
727 and 5 - A rather nosy and curious child, Ferra keeps getting scolded for being in the way of her watchers as they carry on their duties. She's given small items to try polishing to keep her busy and out of their hair.
730 and 8 - She starts helping with basic cleaning tasks now that she's a little older. Her sister Maliah breaks a vase by accident, and Fendrel claims responsibility for it. Not wanting her brother to keep getting into trouble, Ferra tries her best to avoid getting into any trouble herself, or otherwise starts trying to hide her own mistakes from him.
731 and 9 - Mother Mita dies. The Lord of Nabol, Janderian, also dies this turn, and is replaced with his son Jimeridan. A turn of some chaos for the siblings as their lives turn completely upside down.
736 and 14 - Her older brother Fendrel is Searched and goes away to a Weyr. She's worried about what will happen without him around to help, so she starts doing the best she can to help take care of her family, mostly following her oldest sister's lead.
738 and 16 - In an uncharacteristic moment of misbehavior, another drudge, a female friend close to her age, convinces her to try some wine during some downtime. One thing leads to another and she engages in a bit of sexual exploration. She does her best to keep this a secret from everyone.
739 and 17 - The siblings are sent to Jalazmar's household as a wedding gift to him. He and his wife Xyliah officially hire them as servants, not drudges. Ferra meets a cute servant boy and kisses him, but loses her nerve and runs away. She spends most of her time just hiding from him after that and doing her best to be good so as to not mess up her family's new and slightly improved standing.
740 and 18 - In an interesting turn of events, D'hys of blue Zeianth arranges for the girls to move to Ista Weyr as a 'favor' for F'drel. Ferra is Searched as a potential Candidate by R'dal of blue Edath at the same time. Seeing how her brother was able to help them as a dragonrider, she has high hopes that she can also try to help the family if she Impresses as well.
741 and 19 - She doesn't want to go to any of the Hatchings in other Weyrs because they would take her away from her family, so she focuses on her studies and trying to improve herself while she continues to adjust to life in the Weyr.
Melissa Collazo
Education
Details:
Growing up as a drudge in Nabol, she was not given much of an education aside from the very basics and anything her older siblings and other drudges were able to teach her. Once she went to Lord Jalazmar's household she was able to take actual lessons and relished every chance she had to learn something new and try to improve herself. Since being Searched she has attended as many classes as she could and studies in her spare time when she's not knitting or mending clothes.
