Eleni is dark-skinned with long black hair she usually keeps braided or
tied back so it doesn't get in the way. Her face shows her Polynesian
decent. She has broad shoulders and a stocky build. Her arms and legs are
muscled from doing physical labor.
Personality: Eleni is a young woman with an opinion. She's dead set
against most traditions and voices her opinions loudly. She likes to
debate and doesn't mind taking an unpopular stance for the fun of it. She
does understand that not everyone will agree with her and to a degree she
knows that traditions do carry some value... just not enough to warrant
keeping them without proper discussion of their pros and cons.
Skills: Strong, eloquent.
Enjoys: Talking, discussing, reading
Dislikes: Stubborn people (and yes we know that's the pot calling
the kettle black)
Eleni swung her hoe back and then down, feeling the pushback as the metal
cling touched the rocky soil. She twisted and scraped and took a moment's
pause when the rock yielded and came loose. One down, several more to go.
The patch of ground wasn't well-suited for agriculture but it needed to be
prepped as the population had kept growing over the past years. People
were flourishing on their small island nation. The weather had been calm
and the fishing bountiful. So Eleni would plow and hope that one day this
field would feed her own children.
The hours stretched on and it was the dimming of the light that had Eleni
notice that it was time to go home. She put away her tools and returned to
the home of her parents. Truth be told she should have been married by now
but none of the single men had gathered the courage to ask for her hand.
Her father was getting quite desperate but Eleni had kept him from
offering more in her dowry. She didn't want some destitute wretch to marry
her just because her father had given away all he owned. Someone like that
wouldn't be the person she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. She
needed a strong and dependable man, someone with a good head on his
shoulders who would appreciate her for her strengths.
If Eleni had her way, she'd have asked someone already but women just
didn't do the asking around here. Which was strange because they could do
just about anything else. It was one of those truths nobody dared to
question. Well, she did.
Taking the way home while she thought about her life, Eleni nearly didn't
notice the strange sound in the trees. Something, maybe an instinctive
survival mechanism, alerted her though and she stopped walking.
Disoriented she tried to make out what it had been that had put her system
in a state of alarm. She almost felt like something big was watching her.
Something dangerous. Though there weren't any predators on the Island -
the humans had killed them all long before she'd been born - she felt
Not one to back down from a challenge, Eleni stood her ground and called:
A tired sigh, barely more than the wish for a breeze on a humid day. But
Eleni had heard it. She tried to make out who was hiding in the bushes but
that was difficult with darkness obscuring things. A whimper sounded next.
Eleni was no fool, this could be a trap, but she couldn't leave someone
hurt out like this.
"I'm coming." she said, carefully making her way through the
She kept her eyes on the ground but occasionally looked up, still not
completely convinced that the person she'd heard wouldn't turn out to be a
9 foot giant. At one point in time she might laugh about that thought, but
she wasn't there yet. She pushed away leaves and then found a small
fish-like creature that seemed to swirl in a bubble of water.
Intrigued, Eleni inched closer. She extended her hand and touched the
bubble. The moment she made contact a tornado of voices and impressions
exploded in her mind. All that came through was the need to find a dragon.
She was cold, hungry and tired. But as Eleni unconsciously added her
energy to the little dragonder, it connected to one who needed a bond and
took a leap of faith.
Aiburath had hatched at Ryslen. He yearned for a bond but hadn't found an
appropriate match at his hatching. He knew things needed to be exactly
right or the bond wouldn't take. At least it felt like that to him. His
parents had told him to go out in the world to look for a place he could
call home, be it with a human, another dragon or a pack.
So Aiburath had tried living with the other unbonded dragons at Ryslen.
They were too loud. He never got a moment's rest. They were nice enough,
but just not what he was looking for. He'd tailed the searchriders, hoping
to get first dibs on the potential candidates. But not one of them had
seemed right. Maybe he should look for a place rather than a person.
Resigned to his fate, Aiburath had started to travel. Short trips at
first, but as his experience broadened he'd stayed away longer. There was
something to be said about a life on the road, but it also wasn't for him.
He enjoyed meeting new people, he loved to learn new things and he
certainly liked tasting new things and seeing new places. But he wanted to
do those things with another.
On one of his trips, Aiburath found himself on a Nexus world with a lot of
water and an island agency. He'd been welcomed kindly and then been left
to his own devices.
Suddenly a pullng sensation caught his attention. It was like a travel in
between but the disturbance in space was tiny. Right next to him a black
and purple creature appeared. And attached to it was a human. A human who
seemed to not know what was going on.
Aiburath and Eleni locked eyes and there was the rightness Aiburath had
been looking for. Gentle he touched the human's mind as he sensed that she
had never before seen a dragon.
"Nice to meet you." he said
quietly to let her adjust to his presence.
"Charmed." she responded, looking around as if she was searching
for a voice, "That really was you, right?"
"Indeed it was. My name is Aiburath."
Around them the little dragonder launched a wild aerial ballet display
that made Aiburath snort.
"I think you better name this little
nuissance as well." he told his human, "He
might not like to remain without a name."
"Is he mine too?" Eleni asked.
"Not in the same way, but pretty
similar." Aiburath shrugged.
"I guess I'll call him Lolo."
Colour: Verdigris (between green and bronze), about 27% of Copper
Parents: Green-Copper Tasalea and Copper-Green Kelustekth
Abilities: Telepathy, Teleportation, Acid breath, Fire Breath
Description: A new rank mutation. They are known for being easy-going
to a fault. They need a strong leader, or their loyalty will change with the
wind. They even seem to choose their riders randomly, but their partners are
almost always willful and determined people. They tend to be genderfluid
more often than other ranks. They are more likely to object to being called
by only one of their colors than by the wrong pronouns.
Color: Verdigris dragons are a bicolored rank. Their hides are both
metallic copper and chromatic teal in varying amounts. These colors are
co-dominant, and neither is base and neither is markings. They are usually
not more than 75% one color or the other.
Breed: "RysHathians" are Old World (Pernese) x Hathian
hybrids. These ones are 50/50, but the Hathian wing-arm seems to be
dominant, at least at Ryslen. They do not Require bonds, but do strongly
prefer them. They can also join a Pack or remain Single, though that is the
Eleni bonded Verdigris Aiburath at Ryslen
Lolo was taken at Lantessama Isle
