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!

Monthly Event
Details: Link

Welcome to the Month of Lovetm! This month's Monthly Event is all about Romance, whether it is asking someone out on a date, or getting sweaty between the sheets! Anything and everything counts, if it even looks sideways like it could be related to Valentine Day -- including lover's spats, or breaking up, Flights Wins (or Flight Losses!). Honestly, this month has a huge opportunity for interpertation, so go wild!

Details: Link

Ahh, the fresh snow, the crisp air, the naked trees... welcome to Winter! Or, just the Colder Months for those in the more Northern Weyrs, while Ista is just... not as hot. 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!)

Details: Link

Feel like bitching? Wanna take part in a brawl? Or bet on someone? Take part in Brawls and Bitching this month! Boo-yeah!

General Description:
A man. With a face.

He looks even better when he smiles, by Zh'yan usually doesn't It does make the rare smiles more impactful. Pro tip: he smiles with his eyes first.
General Dressing Style:
He's very good at looking a lot richer than he is. Growing up merchant class, you want to look well off even if you don't actually have the access to the finer things. It's about picking things that enhance the few actually nice things you have. As such, he's pretty picky about appearance—especially after he started trying to pick people up or be picked up in taverns and bars. Zharendiyan needed to stand out and look worth it.
Cao Yuchen
Being important to someone
Open minded — He'll try just about anything once.
He's pretty good at shrugging off negative comments from others. Very few people's opinions matter enough to him for their thoughts to matter.
Stepfather — He doesn't hate the man it's just. Hard not to resent the man who basically stole your inheritance and will pass it on to his children, your half siblings, instead of you and expected you to always support your half siblings unconditionally at least a little bit.
Not all that empathetic — It's not that he's malicious or anything, he just tends to thinks that people's emotional reactions are their own problem. It's a problem for them, not a problem for him.
Habits & Mannerisms:
Whatever the Pernese equivalent of chewing gum is.
(Possible historical inspirations: tree bark, tree sap, roots, leaves)
General Personality:
Neither a people person nor not a people person, Zh'yan mostly cares about himself. He can be polite a nice if it feels worth his time—merchants have to be charming, after all—but it's a lot of effort and most people just don't feel worth it. His goal isn't to be an asshole, it just kind of happens sometimes when he doesn't put in the effort. Whoops. Conveniently, Zh'yan doesn't care too much about what unimportant people think of him.

He's finding his general apathy handy for raising a Weyrling. Teraseth gets in trouble? Eh, whatever, good to have experiences, he's not fussed about it. Teraseth's a good boy, Zh'yan's not going to unnecessarily stifle his youth with responsibility (no, he is Not projecting at all, why do you ask?).

Father: Zhenden
Mother: Jaryan (Housewife)
Stepfather: Shon (Merchant)
2 older sisters (Deceased)
2 younger half brothers, 1 younger half sister
Mille [F] 734-735 AL
Keavos [M] 739-740 AL
Important History:
716 AL (0) — Born to a merchant family in Ruatha Hold
720 AL (4)— Sickness sweeps through family, hitting his 2 older sisters, his father, and his grandfather. All by Zharendiyan's father die, and Zhenden's health remains poor. Working becomes very difficult for him.
723 AL (7) — Father commits suicide.
726 AL (10) — Jaryan remarries, another merchant named Shon, who takes over Zhenden's assets.
727 AL (11)— First younger half brother born.
729 AL (13)— Family moves to Sattle Hold for business. Shon sells Zhenden's tiny shop; Zh'yan is unhappy with this. He doesn't love the shop, but it's what remains of his father and was supposed to be his. In Sattle, Zharendiyan is expected to help raise and one day work for his younger half brother, who will inherent the shop Shon buys there—with the money from Zhenden's shop. Zharendiyan is, perhaps, a little bitter.
736 AL (20)— Shon and Jaryan try to arrange a marriage for Zharendiyan to the daughter of a steward. Her name is Mille, and she and Zharendiyan get along well enough. They fool around a bit while their parents are deliberating.
737 AL (21)— Jaryan dies, causes unknown. Zharendiyan takes it poorly and starts acting out. As a result, Mille's family decide he's a bad choice for their daughter and the potential betrothal falls through. Zharendiyan can't bring himself to care much. He starts doing things like getting into minor bar fights and sleeping around. One night a man offers to take him home, which Zharendiyan thinks sounds like a thing that would piss off his stepfather if Shon ever found out, so he accepts. Ends up being more fun than he expected. Hurrah for bisexuality.
739 AL (23)— Continues to be trouble at nights and barely a respectable worker at Shon's store during the day. Ends up falling into the bed of Keavos, the Lord Holder's younger brother (or, more accurately, a rented tavern bed, but whatever, semantics). Zharendiyan thinks it's particularly scandalous and while it's not like he's bragging about his gay exploits he still takes a smug pleasure in the shame it in theory brings to his stepfather. Keavos tracks him down a handful of times for sex, but stops by the end of the Turn (Zharendiyan thinks it has something to do with the fact Keavos called out someone else's name the last time, which like, that's rough buddy).
741 AL (25)— Searched for Fort Weyr by R'dal and Edath, which is actually pretty timely because Shon is about ready to take Measures about Zharendiyan and his wild ways.

Clutch Details:
gold Malvayth x brown Yanth at Fort Weyr on the 14.02.742 AL [Clutch Page] "quietly break out of his shell and stalk towards his boy, sitting quietly for a moment before the young man even realized he was there and jumping with a start. The blue tilted his head curiously, but otherwise didn't seem bothered by the reaction as he followed his new mate off to eat."
Stormy sea blue, which a yellowish stomach patch and lighter blue on his face and feet. Fairly small as a Weyrling, but remained generally proportional.
On the smaller end for blues and rather short. His colors remained much the same, mostly getting sharper and more intense. Darks got darker, brights got brighter.
Soft. Very musical, entrancing.
Quiet, observant. Hates braggarts, enjoys taking them down a peg. Mostly because he knows that they can't do that, he just saw them jump three feet, it wasn't five, that's just Wrong. Misleading people like that is mean and unnecessary. What's the point in lying?
Teraseth will stare at things and people for an unnaturally long time without blinking. It's not uncomfortable at all. Really, it's not.

Especially as a Weyrling, he sometimes seems slow, but it's because he likes to think things through properly before saying them. As he ages he gets better at thinking things through more quickly, so the lag time before his responses decreases.
