Hair Colour:
Medium brown
Toned, Slender
General Description:
Vaeyla is what some people would call pretty, she doesn't think she is anything but plain. She rarely puts any true effort into her looks other then to be clean and to make sure her clothes are clean and not damaged. Her hair is always flowing freely around her face, unless she has need to tie it back. Generally when she is cooking or cleaning, any other time she can't stand for it to be tied up, she swears it gives her a headache.

She carries a fairly light tan most of the time, because as soon as her chores and work are done she is outside, far from the hold in the sun. Her shoulders, arms, and chest have a light sprinkle of freckles, as does her nose. She hates them and thinks they are ugly, but since there is nothing she can do about them, she tries to ignore them.

Her frame is small but she does have curves in the right places as well as some decent strength. One doesn't work in the kitchens without lifting this that and the other, so she is stronger then some girls she knows but won't be lifted logs or boulders anytime soon. She also used to climb a lot of trees so her upper body strength is good. She is still of course overpowered by the smallest of men, but she can handle herself well enough when need be, or so she says.

Vaeyla has medium brown hair that tends to lighten with natural highlights, depending on how much time she spends in the sun. Her hair falls to the middle of her back and is generally worn loose with it framing her face and covering her shoulders. She will wear it up for chores or lessons, but prefers to leave it loose.
General Dressing Style:
Vaeyla prefers to dress simply, either plain dresses in blue or green, or a simple shirt and pants depending on what she is doing. She has never really had anything fancy, given her station in life, so she is very unconcerned about what is and isn't pretty or flattering. Clothes are meant to keep you warm and to cover your bits and pieces as her Grandmother often said..
Holly Marie Combs
She had always hoped they were still alive, her grandmother used to tell her stories about them when she was a child. Having been whisked away on one isn't exactly a dream come true, but she is very much glad that dragons did not go extinct like everyone seemed to think.

She finds that they are delightful little creatures and always loved hearing about them when people would tell stories of their mischief making and about how useful they had been, well before it was believed they killed all the dragons anyway.

They go hand in hand so unless it is a teaching ballad or a slow song, she finds herself wanting to dance and she doesn't much care who with, usually. Hearing a good melody is a quick way for Vaeyla to cure any sadness or melencoly most says.
Vaeyla has a huge heart and is always more then willing to help someone who needs it. She has been known to shirk her own duties to help someone else, if she feels their need is greater than hers to stay out of trouble. She rarely gets angry at people, the most she will ever show, is annoyance and frustration.

Most days Vaeyla is quite optimistic about life and tries to look on the brighter side of all situations. In recent Turns, all things considered, she had some serious trouble trying to remain optimistic about some things but she has been working on that and is getting back to how she used to be.

Vaeyla has a bit of an adventurous streak is not afraid to go off into the wilderness and explore, though she probably should be. She loves to explore new places and tends to be very curious about the places she is exploring.
Being Useless:
Vaeyla doesn't like to sit by idly while things are being done around her and will do her best to be helpful when and where she can. She feels, that as a woman, she will only ever be seen as a baby maker, and where that is okay for the most part, she wants very badly to be able to contribute more to society then just children. Though she is nearly 100% sure, that will never happen.

Being Cold:
One of her three favorite things about being kidnapped! Its almost always warm in the south! If she gets cold, she can and will find any source of heat and cling to it until she is warm. She doesn't know why she doesn't like being cold, she just doesn't.

Her Mother:
She has some deep issues with her mother. The woman as she calls her only comes around when she wants something. She prefers running off with caravans and traders rather than take care of her only living child. She never paid her any attention and is always trying to butt her nose into her life when she does stick around, trying to get her to marry someone for what benefit to her, she doesn't know.
She tends to take things to heart too much and easily gets her feelings hurt. Though she can usually manage to not let anyone know, she has been known to be caught crying or just being very sad over things that shouldn't bother her at all. This is something she is trying to work on correcting.

Does NOT like for people to be upset with her most of the time, and she in turn does NOT like being upset with anyone. She will forgive anyone almost any transgression against her for the sake of keeping the peace. This can of course lead to her being in the exact same situation again and again. The exception to this seems to be with regard to her mother, whom she takes deep pleasure is displeasing.

In a new situation or around a lot of new people, until she has adjusted, she gets very nervous. She wants to please everyone and ends up trying to do everything she thinks will be accepted when all she does it get in the way and make an idiot of herself. She can also talk too much and too fast and makes a complete nuisance of herself. This can of course lead to people judging her poorly and then she tries to fix it after she has calmed down.

If there is something she wants, or that she simply wants to do, she is going to do it regardless of being told no. She generally ends up in a lot of trouble when she does have these moments, and has gotten herself lashed a few times in the past, but sometimes she forgets herself and her place in the world. She has in recent Turns toned this down, so she is not as inclined to get herself in trouble, but she does still have those moments.
Habits & Mannerisms:
Rolls her eyes a lot, whether in sarcasm or annoyance depends on the mood of the conversation as well as who she is speaking with. She would never roll her eyes at a holder or any high ranking person. She may or may not roll her eyes at a man she is speaking with, depending again on the tone of the conversation. It can be pretty hit or miss, and has on more than one occasion landed her on her ass with a bruised cheek.
Will hum the tune to songs she has heard while working on a project.
Has the tendency to daydream and have to be snapped out of it.
General Personality:
Very open minded about new ideas, new ways to accomplish tasks, as well as how people want to live their lives. She honestly feels that people tend to be far too judgmental against others and tries to avoid doing this herself. She is a very loving person once she gets to know someone enough and you would be hard pressed to find a more loyal person than her. If she considers you a friend she is a friend for life no matter what, unless you hurt her more than she is willing to forgive, and that's a pretty hard thing to do with her.

Vaeyla can also be very stubborn, when she sets her mind to something that she wants or that she feels needs to be done, she won't deter until it is done. Not the best of traits but it is there, it's part of her personality that can either be helpful to her or harmful, depending on the reason her stubbornness kicks in.

Probably one of her favorite things about herself is that she is feisty. She isn't like the other drudges and workers who seem to have had the life drained from them. Sure her day to day life if the mundane life of every kitchen drudge, but she still knows how to have fun with her work and with other people. She is mischievous on occasion and fun loving and not afraid to let anyone see it, unless of course it simply isn't an appropriate time for it. She isn't completely out of hand however, and does know when to keep her mouth shut and head down. She's been knocked down a few times in past Turns for doing or saying things she shouldn't, so she does know better than to cross most lines.

Important History:
712 & 0:
714 & 3:
Mother remarries a trader and takes to traveling with him, rather then staying at home with her daughter who was often left in the care of a kitchen drudge.
715 & 4:
Mother has another baby but she is sickly and died some months later; Mother's firelizard died; hold and weyr were in an uproar over the deadly plague infecting and killing firelizards and dragons.
716 & 5:
Vaeyla's Grandmother, Melandra's gold Kalesseth dies from the plague, days before the other weyrs went south, going between and leaving her rider behind, nearly causing her to go crazy. She still wasn't quite all there most days she did manage to survive the loss of her dragon. She relocated to Southern Boll Hold with her daughter and granddaughter, spending most of her time coddling Vaeyla or staring off into space.
721 & 10:
Going against her mother's wishes, she decided to follow some of the hold boys on an adventure. Unfortunately she wasn't as good as climbing trees as the boys were and slipped about halfway up the tree and fell. She nearly broke her neck falling, luckily she didn't, but was bruised all over and had a nasty concussion, so she was laid up in bed for about a week.
723 & 12:
Vaeyla's mother had been wanting to leave the hold for a while, but had not wanted to take her daughter with her. She didn't care for the girl much and felt she was always in her way. She made a half hearted attempt to marry her off to the third son of a minor holder she had met during a gather. The boy wasn't complaining, he was a bit older than her so they would have had to wait, but he tried to put his hands on her anyway. The black eye she had given him had been worth the lashings she received and she was more than glad to have been left behind when her mother went off with a group of traders.
726 & 15:
Didn't see her mother again until she was 15 and it was very short lived. She had come back with the traders she left with, but again only long enough to try and betroth her to the son of one of the traders in the group. She wasn't having anything to do with it and took off until she was sure the traders, and her mother, were gone. Earned a bit of a lashing for that as well but since she hadn't actually caused any trouble, she was put on pot scrubbing duty when the healer finished making numbweed. That was punishment enough that she behaved for quite a while after that.
727 & 16:
Vaeyla's grandmother got a nasty cold and had been bedridden for several months because of it. Healers suspected it had been her lack of will to live that had caused her to stay sick so long. She did finally manage to overcome the sickness however and with Vaeyla's help she also managed to come out of the majority of her brokenhearted stupor. She wasn't able to help much, but she was able to function more so that she didn't have to be watched so much. She was sorely cranky with everyone but her granddaughter, most days though.
729 & 18:
Vaeyla's 18th birthday was one she won't soon forget. It had started out all fine and dandy, her grandmother made her a cake and had gifted her a new tunic. Unfortunately later in the evening she ended up getting knocked around when she refused to let a man have his way with her. Luckily for her he decided she wasn't worth it and went his way, though he left her with a sore cheek and a darkening bruise. The same night however, on her way back from a long walk, she received quite a shock when she was hauled off by yet another man who was not so easily persuaded to leave her alone. The man happened to be a dragonrider though and as soon as she saw his dragon she stopped struggling and went willingly, after being very girly and gushing over the dragon, not so much the rider, though she regretted that she might not see her grandmother ever again.
730 & 19:
Spent the Turn getting used to the new people she was around, tended to keep to herself and did whatever she was instructed to do. Ended up being in the wrong place at the wrong time when a green went up early that Turn, got herself caught up in flight lust, wound up pregnant and had her son Evritt later in the Turn. He ended up being early but after a scare was perfectly healthy.
732 & 21:
Get's pregnant late in the Turn but miscarries. The loss hit her hard, she enjoys being a mother and so became overwhelmed with grief. She spent a lot of time alone and even neglected to spend time with Evritt, luckily there were others to care for him at the time.
733 & 22:
Finally managed to let go of her grief about halfway through the Turn with a lot of help from K'ton and Ameris. She was finally able to be near her son again and spent as much time with him as possible to make up for her being gone. She stood for the Dangerous Days clutch but was not surprised that she did not Impress, she was still too sad in her heart.
734 & 23:
Stood for several hatchings that Turn but continued to not Impress. Over the course of the Turn she fell into a bit of a depression every time a hatching came up. She felt like a complete failure and K'ton was hard pressed to encourage her to keep standing.
734 & 23:
Landslide - Did her best to be helpful during the recovery efforts of the weyr, ended up moving into K'ton's home for a short time until a new candidate barracks was constructed. Also received a firelizard egg the night before the slide, which she managed to keep undamaged so that it hatched into a lovely bronze firelizard that she promptly named digger.
735 & 24:
Found herself without K'ton as he had gone north. Her days were rather dull without his obnoxious banter but she still had her son and Ameris to keep her busy and otherwise occupied. Stood for the Limitless Wonder clutch, not expecting to Impress, as was her norm, yet was surprised when the pale gold Nadioth chose her.

Dragon Information
Wing and Rank:
Wingrider of
Adult Stats
35.6 foot length, 17.8 foot tall, with a 55.4 foot wingspan.
Clutch Details:
Mizeath x Korutath at Katila Weyr on the [Clutch Page]
Nadioth will hatch out as a very even, pale gold. Her coloring be rather generic to look at with no breaks in color, the only thing that stands out is the lightness of tone. Long delicate fingers grace large paws that will make her clumsy in her weyrlinghood. Her elegant wings will be slightly larger than usual for her length. Like her wings, Nadioth's head knobs will be longer than average giving her head an almost unfinished look.
As an adult, Nadioth's plain Jane hide will molt out to the same even nondescript gold. However the color will be broken as a soft rose gold begins to show in an intricate lacing pattern. Unfortunately her head does not seem to grow in length to match her head knobs, they will remain much longer than average continuing to give her head an unfinished look.
Usually smooth and articulate, often described as soothing in it's calm and even tone. Unless she is angry. When angry her voice will be shrill and painful, raising in octaves and volume the more upset she becomes.
As a weyrling, Nadioth will be quiet and reserved, she will give off an almost aloof feel while interacting with others. Nadioth will go through life saving most of her speech for Vaelya, mostly because she feels Vaelya is far more deserving of it and others are not. As a hatchling Nadioth will appear to be very standoffish when confronted with others, often looking from behind Vaelya's skirts when anyone is about, gazing at them with that same detached air she had at hatching as she weighs and judges those she comes into contact with. As she enters adulthood this will begin to even out and she will begin to exhibit her joy at the company of those she knows well, looking forward to those small gatherings, though she will remain reserved and quiet with those she has only just met. K'ton will constantly plague the small gold with his exuberance and joking manner as she grows into adulthood but the brownrider will eventually become one of those trusted few she enjoys. These few will come to include all of whom are closest to Vaelya.

Much like her mother, Nadioth will come to believe that manners are important. Whether it is a child or adult, the gold expects well mannered and behaved beings in her presence. She will be known for abruptly leaving any conversation or meeting where the actions and manners of those attending are deplorable, often leaving her rider speechless as she stomps away. She will, from hatching, love children. Evritt will be a wonderful source of entertainment and love for the gold as she grows and matures. Though hatchling dragonets will be given some curious consideration, it will be the human younglings that hold her attention the most, especially those that show an adventurous, albeit polite, nature.
Nadioth will most often be sitting idle with only the tip of her tail flipping back and forth, almost in a catlike manner.
Likes to puff air out at people randomly, more so at children because she likes their shocked reactions, or in Evritt's case, shocked expression then dissolving into a fit of giggles before she receives a nose hug.

Nadioth adores human children, most especially Vaeyla's son Evritt. In her eyes, Evritt can do no wrong...well nearly no wrong. She sees vast potential in each child she comes across and deems those of a polite nature the best of the best. Though hatchlings will never be given the same level of consideration as a human child, Nadioth will come to find their clumsy and ineffectual stumbling highly amusing. Hatching times will often be filled with her laughter as she watches her children stumble about awkwardly.
From the time of her weyrlinghood to her adulthood, the gold will be enraptured with the liquid. Swimming will become her favorite past time as she trundles out into the water for a bath. Vaelya will often find herself soaked as her dragon splashes and cavorts in the lakes. When asked why she enjoys the water so much, her only reply is that it makes her feel like she is flying without ever leaving the ground. This will be especially true when she is egg heavy and cumbersome.
Nadioth loves to fly nearly as much as she does to swim. She loves the feel of the wind whipping past her and the strength in her wings as she takes herself and her rider higher and higher into the air. Mating flights will prove to be a hard test for those bronzes brave enough to catch her, the thrill of the chase and the adrenaline of flight will bring Nadioth to even higher realms of flight as she takes her chasers on an adventure of dips, turns, and spins.

Firelizards are not her favorite creature. She finds them silly and quite stupid in their own right. Vaelya's bronze, Digger, will be the only firelizard she can tolerate for any length of time. She will try to avoid others when she can and suffer them when she can't.
Being Dirty:
Nadioth is a rather clean dragon, always carefully ensuring that her hide is impeccable after feeding times. She will come to hate the rainy season. Though she does enjoy the rain that falls, the ensuing mess it makes will leave her quite disgruntled and disgusted. She dislikes the feel of mud squishing between her fingers and under her paws, cleaning herself is even more difficult as the taste is far from palatable. She will demand baths more often during this time, though she will not need them.

Nadioth is highly observant. Her reserved nature allows her to sit on the sidelines and watch with quiet curiosity all that transpires. Because of this Nadioth will often catch things her rider misses, quickly relaying them to Vaelya should she believe them important.
Nadioth will be a strong, fast flier. Her slightly oversized wings will allow Nadioth a slight advantage during flights, giving her a higher endurance and speed that the average gold lacks.

Nadioth's biggest weakness will be her unyielding temper tantrums. She will be slow to anger but once there the force with which she lets everyone know she is displeased will put the most cantankerous toddler to shame. More often than Nadioth's tantrums lead to some sort of damage, as the large gold disregards things in her path as she stomps her feet around. Though highly embarrassing, the tantrums will become a source of amusement to some in the weyr.
Vaelya will always remain her weakness. Her rider is her life and one of the most sure-fire ways to get to Nadioth is to mess with her rider. Though Vaelya is very capable of taking care of herself, her innate ability to forgive and forget any transgression does not communicate within Nadioth and the gold is much more able to carry on the grudge or anger that her rider simply lets go, though the gold never remembers why, unless Vaelya is reminded of it. This will cause more than one blowout between Nadioth and others, be they rider or dragon. Though she will be hard-pressed, Vaelya will be the only presence that will calm the outraged dragon.
