Blonde, shoulder length
Slim, petite
General Description:
Casa, while short, has a long-limbed body that makes it look like she’s all arms and legs. She has narrow shoulders, narrow hips, and a practically-flat chest that Casa would be more upset about if she cared about looking feminine and attractive like the other girls her age. Echoing her long limbs, Casa has long, delicate fingers that she has decorated with pretty rings that have been collected since she joined the other dragonriders on Ista.

Casa has soft green eyes, the colour faded and almost grey. Her eyes are gentle and softly rounded. Her eyebrows, several shades darker than her hair, are neatly arched and require minimal maintenance. Her eyelashes are a dark honey colour, thick and enviously long. asa wears her hair in growing waves, soft and golden like straw, it falls to her shoulder blades. She does not wear a fringe or bangs, finding them more trouble than their worth. Instead, her hair is layered gently by a local barber, and maintained generally through finger combing and occasional ribbons or thongs. When she finds her hair too troublesome, she may wear it pulled back in a French braid.

With quick, easy movements, Casa has the grace of a dancer; she is lightly balanced on the balls of her feet and carries her light weight with a delicate poise. The past several years of being responsible for a dragon has developed muscle tone not seen in most women. She has toned arms and legs, and a flat belly. Unfortunately this doesn’t do anything but add to the otherwise boyish look of her long limbed and narrow body.

Habits & Mannerisms:
Sleeping with nightlights seems like a habit Casa is loath to grow out of, despite the constant quips from her dragon. Casa is also incredibly neat and tidy, with everything in its place and a place for everything. She finds this leaves less room for tripping hazards or shadows in the dark. Her desk is where she does a lot of her work, and her bed is kept well made at all times it isn’t being used.
General Personality:
Casa is an intelligent and friendly young lady, well known for her bright and sunny personality; it is a warm day between when Casa is seen with a frown on her face, for it seems as if nothing can ever get her down. Her smile is easy and comes quickly, and her voice is often lilting with joy. To say she can be overbearing in her pure enjoyment of life would likely be well stated, for Casa has a desire to see everyone around her as happy as she, and finding joy in even the smallest aspect of life has her sharing them with anyone that will pause long enough to listen.

Like most people who are so ridiculously sunny, Casa’s smiles and cheerful nature hide a loneliness and depression that she doesn’t share with anyone but Thallayth. Casa longs to make close friends, as she had before she Impressed, but lacks the spine to really attach herself; she is too afraid of losing someone close to her, as she lost so much during the Landslide. As a result, Thallyath is her only true friend, and Casa clings to that friendship with a fierceness that is probably unhealthy. She loves her gold dragon, and while she doesn’t go out of her way to make said dragon happy, she does live to love her.

Casa isn’t afraid of much, but what she is afraid of, she is terrified of. Primarily this is the childlike fear she has of the darkness, wherein she feels as if she has no control and the inability to see causes her heart to flutter and panic to arise. Typical dragonrider fears of losing her dragon linger, but she tends to bury them, much like her friends were buried by the Landslide. Casa fights off the darkness by having excessive amounts of glows, particularly in the corners of her room where shadows are known to linger.

Irresponsibility is Casa’s calling card. She loathes doing chores and hates being bogged down by required work. If someone said she had to read the Library archive, Casa would hate that, too. She is not one to offer herself for boring tasks, which is mostly everything in her opinion. She would much rather be off frolicking on the beach, climbing a mountain, swimming in the waters of Ista. Anything except being responsible and fulfilling her duties.

Important History:
720 & Birth: Casa was born late in the year the call for the dragonriders to come together was made. Her mother died in childbirth, and Casa was raised communally within the developing Weyr. While she knows some about her mother, she never got the name of her father.
725 & 5 Turns: Casa Made friends in the crèche, and began escaping to spend time with Par’a and green Grith.
728 & 8 Turns: Out gathering greens with some of the Weyrfolk, Casa slices her arm, resulting in her first experience with the Healers. She finds the experience to be of great curiosity, barely noticing the pain of her wound being treated. The stitches are removed easily not too much later, and Casa has barely a scar left to remind her of the experience.
730 & 10: Casa is fascinated by the inpouring of Stolen candidates; they bring new skills and information to Katila and Casa is often found skulking around the young men in order to pick up gossip and information about the mystical North. When Master Healer Talian is Stolen, Casa once more becomes fascinated with the Healer Craft, though she loses a lot of her lustre when she is constantly banished from the small Healer Hall Katila boasts.
734 & 13: The best day of Casa’s life came on the 29th of month 7, when she Impressed to gold Thallyath, daughter of gold Okalinath and bronze Torath. During the same Hatching, her best friend Impressed to a bronze, and what could possibly ruin such a wonderful, wonderful event?

Not even 24 hours later, the Landslide came; a mountainside made slick and loose from all the rain fell down upon Katila and swallowed most of the Weyr, including the Weyrling Barracks where the children and their newly hatched dragonets slept, believing themselves safe. In the horror, Casa’s best friend lost his life – as did his dragonet – while Casa and Thallyath barely managed to escape alive themselves. There was no time to mourn, for the world was in mayhem and would remain that way for several days. Casa has very little in the way of clear memories of the Landslide and that which followed, most of it fuzzy or suppressed.
735 & 14 Casa feels left out as the older dragonriders take to the North, but once Thallayth is old enough to Fly and the pair is taught to travel between they are quick to join their fellows. Casa finds the North to be incredibly exciting and very interesting. She spends a lot of her time exploring Telgar Weyr when she has nothing else to do.
736 & 15: Casa finds herself asigned to Ista Weyr, and follows her new Weyrleaders to their new home. She is as fascinated by the Island as she was by Telgar, and regularly found exploring the depths of the caverns, often at the expense of her chores and duties.
738 & 18 Casa is comfortable and at home in Ista now, and knows the Weyr, the Island and its beaches well. She can often be found in the library of the Weyr reading and relaxing, sprawled in a most un-lady like manner. When she can escape, Casa can be found on one of the many beaches, swimming and exploring, while Thallyath suns on the sand or stones.

Casa is also uncomfortably aware of the fact that her dragon is plenty old enough to begin her cycle of Rising, and is waiting for the little gold dragon to take to the skies. She’s not unaware of the interest many of the bronze and some of the brownriders invest in her, though she does her best to avoid them when she can, much to Thallyath’s disgust.

Casa doesn't have an education in the sense of a Hall based training, but she is very well educated in general, and in the specialties of herbs and plants, poisons, and politics. She's learning to manipulate with skill and subtly, as well as how to run the Ista Weyr as the new Weyrwoman.

Clutch Details:
Gold Okalinath x Bronze Torath at Katila Weyr on the 29.07.734 [Clutch Page] Egg Description: The pure and snowy surface is then covered as if with golden snowflakes, each almost touching, but leaving enough room between the splotches to retain the beautiful white underneath. The egg is startling, and eye catching, and undoubtedly the container of another gold. It is neither here nor there in size. Your Touching: Another one? Another one! The little one within the egg quivers slightly as Casa’s hand is placed upon her shell, and her mind reaches back to touch the other girl’s. The child’s youth was noted almost instantly, and curiosity sparked as she brought that to the forefront of Casa’s mind, before delving through the thoughts, memories and images that were linked; men and boys, laughter, tears, joys and fears. All of it was examined by a very serious dragonet, full of bright curiosity.
From a particularly beautiful egg, a particularly mediocre hatchling was produced. With her golden hide more of a dirty colour than freshly minted, Thallyath certainly wasn’t someone that commanded the eye because of her colouration, and her regular size and unnoteworthy proportioning did little to help. Just another gold, amongst a slowly increasing number of golds.
Her growth will be extremely awkward, with it seeming as if limbs are all growing independently of each other; her rump will shoot up, then a few months later, her shoulders might rise up to where they should be in relation, or rocket up past her arse, creating an incredibly bizarre looking young dragon. Her wings will go through periods where they look mismatched, creating a lot of worry and disruption to her lessons in flying, hunting and future ability to Rise well.
When she finally does finish her growth, Thallyath will be well proportioned, though she will retain a more cliche green build, of wafery lines and a delicate, exaggeratedly feminine appearance. Her eyes are neither too large, nor too small for her face, but are notable due to their constantly curious colourations and the delicate line of her ridges, shaped almost as if she has slightly raised eyebrows at the things the world presents her with.

In length, Thallyath will stop growing at a tiny twenty-eight feet, reminiscent of the older dragons, she will be vastly outsized by many of her siblings, including several blue dragons, as they reach for a larger scale while she is left as a throwback of what once was. Despite her tiny length, Thallyath is beautifully proportioned, with a full wingspan of forty-four feet, only slightly larger than ideal for her size, while she stands at a proud fourteen feet. She will always retain her lightly built form, and while she will never be a particularly fussy eater, Thallyath will never be an overly outgoing eater, either. Small, irregular meals satisfy her and keep her going.

As her infant hide peels away at the end of her growth, Thallyath reveals a hide of ancient-gold, dappled with highlights of bright, sunny yellow, as if parts of her have seen a lifetime, while others are fresh and ready to face the world. While she has no particular markings that truly stand out amongst the rest, over the turns Casa may well find an assortment of shapes in the dapples on her dragon’s hide, and wonder how she missed this one, or that one, in the turns prior. Looking at Thallyath’s hide can be much like looking at the clouds in the sky; every day, there is a different shape to see.
In comparison to her delicate, feminine appearance, Thallyath’s voice can be quite a shock to those who hear it. On the deep side, the small gold’s mind voice is not nearly as feminine as her appearance would indicate it might sound; it’s a big voice, but almost always spoken in low, mellow tones that belie an ability to blow hypothetical eardrums if she ever decided to actively yell at someone.
Thallyath is a blunt and often abrupt dragon who has absolutely no issues with inserting herself into any conversation, whether she was wanted there or not. Her personal opinions are very regularly given to those that will listen to her, with little regard for how they might be received, or whether or not feelings will be hurt in the process. Thallyath is a strong believer that the truth is better said than hidden away, and that sugar coating things is ridiculous. This results in Thallyath being forced to regularly undergo ‘me time’, despite her lack of natural inclination to be alone; she simply isn’t the type of dragon that others can put up with in large or regular doses.

One could easily come to the inclusion that Thallyath is lacking in empathy, and they really would not be that far off, though somewhat misguided. Thallyath does care about the feelings of those around her, but her care for them comes with the tag of everyone over the individual. She would rather make moves for the betterment of everyone, than to try and make each and every individual happy or content. This thought process often comes through and shines bright in her abrupt and frank manner of speaking, and her ‘larger picture’ ideals.

Patience is not something Thallyath has a lot of; quite the contrary, she is exceedingly impatient and easily frustrated by the actions of others, including but not limited to Casa’s. She is especially set off by those who move with self-interest and little care for the Weyr at large, finding them selfish and unworthy. While dragonriders and their beasts are not within the capacity of herself or Casa to discipline for things she finds unbecoming, Thallyath’s nasty glare can very readily display her displeasure. Additionally, as she goes through life, she will find ways to get her will impressed upon those around her. This will notably occur through means such as choosing a mate of rank, even if Casa dislikes the man, for even Casa will find herself subjected to things she dislikes, if Thallyath believes that their actions are for the betterment of the Weyr at large.

While her actions and input will often cause her to be the centre of attention, Thallyath is not a dragon naturally inclined to call attention to herself; she would much rather leave such moments to far more diplomatic dragons than she, for Thallyath is well aware that her manner of speaking is hardly diplomatic. Her willingness to step aside and let others lead the way comes not from modesty on her part, it again stems from her desire to see the best possible result for every action, and to put the Weyr in the best possible situations. If she is not the best suited to lead a situation, than Thallyath will quickly champion the creature – dragon or human, it matters not – that she believes will best benefit the Weyr she calls her own.

Thallyath is a stickler for tradition, quickly coming to conclusions that do not always sit well with those around her, and in some cases do cause a little bit of a fanfare. As soon as she learned that the majority frown upon female riders, Thallyath decided they were not something that would better the Weyr and that, like everything else she deems unworthy, they should step down and step away – for the betterment of the Weyr. As a result, Thallyath will raise hell itself, before she will let any girl touch one of her non-gold eggs.
<b>Habits/Mannerisms:</b> Thallyath has what can quickly become a very annoying habit of clearing her throat, both mentally and literally, with a soft but pointed ‘huh-hrm!’. This is usually given voice when Thallyath is displeased with a present set of circumstances, or if she disproves of actions being taken, particularly if they clash with her firm belief in traditions and how they should be upheld.

In addition to her pointed vocal opinion, Thallyath follows up her huh-hrm with a flat, dark stare that very clearly informs the victim of her disproval that she is very displeased with them.

<b>Likes:</b> Thallyath likes order, and organization. She likes knowing what is going to happen, what is happening and what is planned to happen next. She likes situations in which she is given the opportunity to think, especially if it has no time limit; puzzles and riddles are particularly enjoyable to her, and feels no time is ever wasted, puzzling over quizzes.
Honour and tradition are of the utmost importance to Thallyath, and she does not just like them - she loves them. It is very important to her that others uphold the same values, and she enjoys socialising with, and being around, people and dragons that think and talk sense. She likes the fact that everything has its place, and every place has its thing.

<b>Dislikes:</b> Tradition is important to Thallyath, and those that bulk against it are creatures she doesn’t understand. This has notable visibility in the way some chromatics pick female riders. Thallyath does not understand their choices, and nor does she think they had the wellbeing of the Weyr in mind when they made them. As a result, she has a cold-shouldering dislike for any blue or green that choses a female rider, and goes out of her way to make sure Casa does not interact with such as those. Female candidates seeking non-gold are not allowed near her babies, just as Thallyath will snap and snarl at the prospect of a woman teaching her offspring once they have chosen their lifemate.

<b>Strengths:</b> Thallyath is a dragon who considers it her duty to champion those in whom she believes. She will stand up for those that she believes are in the right, from offering her opinion on such things – whether wanted or unwanted – through to simply offering a physical golden wall of approval as she stands behind those she approves of, whether literally or figuratively.

While Thallyath doesn’t consider herself to be the best, she does consider her every movement and her every opinion is formed with the desire for the betterment of the Weyr in mind. As a result, her championing of those that she approves of is something some will come to desire, and something that should be noted by those that get to know Thallyath.

This gold dragon takes note of everything around her, showing a clear strength when it comes to seeing the bigger picture, and the ingredients that formed it. She isn’t one to take any notice at all of the tress, all her attention being on the forest and where it is going and how it is shaping up. Thallyath will go out of her way to attempt to better the youngsters of the Weyr, and be very vocal in her opinion about which adults should be cropped from what she believes is the perfect Weyr. From gold to green, if Thallyath does not believe them to be a solid part of the Weyr, she will make sure her opinion that they should be transferred to ‘some other dump’ is well known.

<b>Flaws:</b> Thallyath does not have a head for spontaneity; she simply cannot fathom how other creatures – humans or dragons – are capable of just getting up and going without any thought or planning. Her disdain for it almost qualifies for a mild phobia, with the way it makes her fret and get antsy when people or dragons do something unexpected, but especially when it is required of her. Such responses as ‘but that wasn’t the plan!’ with an almost frantic widening of the eyes will not be uncommon.

Hand in hand with this, goes Thallyath’s shuddering dislike of disorganisation; a solid plan is a good thing! Schedules and organisation and knowing what is supposed to happen when, and at what time and in which order are important to the dragon. Events of disorganisation worry her – what if something goes wrong? How will it be known if something goes wrong, if she can’t figure out what was supposed to be happening?!

Between the two weaknesses, Thallyath is an amazing failure when it comes to keeping her head in emergency situations, where fleet thinking and snap decisions are required. She simply cannot even imagine how to do that, let alone actually do it.
