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!

Place of Birth:
Southern Wilds
Searched By:
Jr Weyrwoman
Primary Home:
Igen Weyr
Searched Date:
Eye Colour:
Hair Colour:
Red, long
General Description:
Despite riding gold, Nonalia is still very nearly a human walking stick. She's a very thin young woman, with only a smattering of evidence of muscle on her arms, thighs, and stomach. She is on the upper end of average height, which only makes her look even more thin and frail. Despite her size, she's not someone to push over and try to strongarm; she's not afraid to fight back, or fight dirty.

To some, she could be considered a very gorgeous young woman. Her bright red hair is long, falling at her mid-back, textured and feathered in a way that makes her heart-shaped face look longer and leaner. Her bright green eyes are very expressive, resting just above a cute button nose and pink bowed lips. The only thing not so thin about her would he her wide hips and large chest, neither of which she tries to hide.
General Dressing Style:
The heat of Igen Weyr and it's surrounds means that the majority of the time, Nonalia's seen in light and breathable dresses. She was already not a big fan of shoes, so with the excuse of the heat of the weyr and soft sand, she often goes without. Unless, of course, she must go out during the daytime rather than the calm cool of the evenings. Her hair is usually pulled away from her face with a hairpin, but rarely worn up.

Habits & Mannerisms:
Tends to bite the inside of her cheek, or bounce a leg if seated, when she's nervous.
General Personality:
Nonalia has always been a quiet, shy little thing, often keeping to herself and is fairly nervous meeting new people. She tends to speak softly, particularly when first meeting someone, and more often than not, is told to repeat herself multiple times in the same conversation. Despite her apprehension around unknown people, there’s nothing she loathes more than being alone; if she’s not with Laniath, she won’t hesitate to head into more populated places to keep from feeling that crushing loneliness. She can be a bit sensitive, and sometimes take things harder than they were meant, resulting in either a grumpy Lia or a genuinely hurt one. She’s trying not to let things fester, an influence from Laniath no doubt, and find a way to resolve those issues calmly and without long lasting damage. It’s… a work in progress.

While highly invested in the success of the weyr as a whole, there’s a rebellious streak to her that will often rear its head. While she won’t outright speak out against the Weyrleadership, small rules will sometimes be neglected if she believes they will benefit the weyr as a whole. She cares so much about everything, and everyone, and will check in on those she’s close to often, just to make sure that they’re alright. She’s a fairly intelligent woman, and always keeps an open mind, always willing to look at things from other angles and expand her viewpoint. She is a bit of a romantic at heart, with grand ideas of love thanks to the devotion she’d seen from her father when it came to how much he doted on her mother. She yearns to find something like that for herself, but like much of her personality, she doubts herself often.

Anaveni, mother & creche worker
L'nal of bronze Afferth, father
3 older brothers, with one impressed to a rather arrogant brown.
2 older sisters, both now weyrmated in separate weyrs.
Brief fling with a candidate-now-brownrider at Ista. It ended when she impressed Laniath, and she left before a real discussion on it could be had.
Storms actually terrify her. She was so young with the one that destroyed Katila, and the landslide a few turns later certianyl didn't help. She spends most storms curled up in her weyr on Laniath's sofa.
Lia actually seemed happy to be moving to Igen Weyr, even if she did tend to keep to herself thereafter.
Important History:
718 (Birth); Nonalia is born in the wilds of the southern continent, and is the only of her siblings born in the south. She is barely of walking age by the time the call rang out to join what would become Katila Weyr.

719-723 (1-5); While the huts and other buildings of the weyr are built by the adults and children old enough to be of use, Lia and the other young children are watched by her mother and other creche workers. She makes few friends her age, but one particularly fearless and outgoing boy seems to adopt her as his own introverted friend.

724 (6); She's far too young to be able to understand what the appearance of northern ships might mean. Nonalia doesn't understand why the Weyrwoman is so distraught about it, and why they are forbidden from interacting with them. Her father says he'll explain when she's older. He never does.

725-729 (7-11) The storm that destroys half the weyr ends up bringing about the beginnings of a fear of storms. Even she begins to hear the whispers of an uprising, a plot to put something else in place rather than the traditional gold leadership that only seemed to be failing them. That seemed to have been quenched pretty quickly, and put a terror in her father's own impenetrable heart. That was enough to scare her into not asking any more questions.

730-732 (12-14);Then public lashing of a candidate furthers that fear of their home itself, scaring her more than she's willing to admit. She reaches age to be able to stand, but with the leadership's increased demonstrations of punishment, she refuses to join candidacy.

733-735 (15-17) She's ready to leave Katila when the landslide takes most of their home, no longer feeling the safety of it as she had as a young girl. This time, she's old enough to help rebuild, and she does eagerly, willing to do whatever it takes to be of use rather than a burden. The Weyrwoman's death, however, seems to slow that progress, and talks of heading back north seem to come from the top now.

736 (18);The move North is, frankly, terrifying, and she is unsure of what they'll find once they get there. When her father is sent to Ista a few turns later, she follows and decides to stand for candidacy. She's no longer afraid of what leadership might do to any who step out of line.

737-741 (19-23); She's hopeful to impress that first hatching, but not even a green looks her way. The second is the same. The next few turns pass without so much as a glance in her direction. She wonders if she should have followed her brother to Fort, learned healing there and tried her hand at those hatchings, or just given up standing entirely.

742 (24); And yet, she's glad she didn't. Before the end of the fifth year standing at Ista, Laniath hatches, and with a simple word, she is stunned… and smitten.

743-Now (25-Present); The pair graduate, and once opened, are immediately sent to Igen to serve as Jr. Weyrwoman. Neither mind the change of scenery, and Igen is absolutely gorgeous in its own right. They could be happy here.

Clutch Details:
Gold Thallyath x Bronze Urudith at Igen Weyr on the 07.08.742 [Clutch Page] Laniath is particularly close with the blue brother that broke her out of her shell. He's one of her few confidants, and the closest relationship she has outside of her rider. She chose Nonalia at the touching; her fighter spirit and more guarded demeanor impressed her, and gave her a goal to improve their bond even more. She wants to see her rider break out of her shell, live a little, let go.
At her hatching, Laniath was a round little thing, with dainty features that looked out of place on that chubby little body. She was small, and took care where she stepped, being mindful not to trip over her own feet and make a spectacle of herself. Her coloring wasn't too dissimilar to her adult features, with red bands around each paw and head knob, though she was a much duller gold color before her hide began to age. As she aged, her proportions grew gangly and awkward as her mother's; limbs first, stretching the gold and making her lanky and awkward in the ground, then her wingsails, occasionally dragging along as she walked, before finally the rest of her began to fill out in time.
Laniath is a gold, no doubt about that. She is sleek, with proportions even throughout and an almost feline grace in every step she takes. She's a well-muscled dragon, definition obvious throughout her small frame, each movement showing off exactly how well she cares for her own wellbeing. She is still a small gold, just barely within the normal ranges for her color, but is still smaller than most yet to reach their final size, with the single exception being her Thallyath herself. Her coring has expanded somewhat, brightening to an almost true gold in some places, looking splotchier than her youth by the time she reaches her first turn. The red band around her headknobs grew into a cross-stitch pattern, crossing over each knob in an intricate, almost regal pattern. The same can be said for the red-orange at her paws, taking over each limb almost as a sock. She looks like she may have trapsed through clay, or partaken in a particularly bloody battle.
The tone of Laniath's voice is soft and dainty, a mellow pitch that grows higher when excited or cheerful. It's very pleasent to listen to her speak fo any amount of time. When her anger flairs, however, her voice is more reminisce of thunder; loud and booming and impossible to forget the sound of it raining down upon you. Her ire is something to be feared, in pitch as well as in fury.
Intelligence is not the lack of creativity, but the abundance of it, and there is no ounce of Laniath's sparkling hide that is anything but creative. She likes to make little games with her rider and those around them, either as a fun little way to get to know them or just something to do to pass the time. Sitting still is not her strong suit, and as such, will often be fidgeting with something just to entertain her overactive mind. She has a fondness for puzzle games, and loves to sit where she can hear the Harpers play or practice their craft. Had she the patience, or the ability, she may try to find more artistic outlets, like painting or those funny little flower crowns she sees the little girls wear in the springtime. Alas, she is a dragon.

Loyalty means everything to Laniath, and it can be the difference between an ally, and a friend. Faith to Pern, to the Weyr, to one’s rider, or to her, while one’s devotion can take many forms, it is important to her that those closest know what cause they are so stalwart for. For her, her loyalty is to her rider first, the Weyr second, and everything else is further ranked as she sees fit. Of the things she finds herself dedicated to, she will protect with tooth and claw, to the death, if it comes to it. She will protect what she holds dear without second thought and without hesitation. Anyone or anything important to hers is extended this protectiveness, and it’s best not to anger a gold if it can be helped.

This gold, in particular, comes with a very short fuse when it comes to those things that anger her. If she's pushed to the edge, brought to that breaking point, the bubbly personality turns into boiling lava, saying things to burn and turning more ruthless more vindictive. She can, and will, hold a grudge, if the slight is big enough that it can’t be discussed or resolved in any way. However, for the most part, as blistering hot as her anger flares, that short temper is even shorter lived once it roars to life. She’d rather make peace, and allies, than let her temper keep her from resolving whatever issues can be done away with.

At her core, Laniath is a bright and gentle presence. She has her faults, and she knows that she is bullheaded and temperamental, but she also knows there's more to her than the short fuse and over-protectiveness. She wants nothing more than to be a positive face for the weyr as a whole, and will start always with her best paw forward. She’s a bit of an adventurer at heart, wanting to experience new sights and meet all sorts of new folks. She’s the extrovert to her Lia’s introvert, stopping to talk to anyone who so much as glances her way. She wants to leave the world a better place than what it was when she was hatched.
