Description: Bearn is tall with distinguished features and a noble air
around him. His black hair is tied away in a neat pony tail. His blue eyes
with a hint of grey can convey a thousand looks, aided by his flexible
eyebrows. He's cool and quiet and rather likes to weigh all options before
he decides on an action. He spends a lot of time thinking about the motives
of people. He enjoys being an actor because he can play out emotions he'd
never allow himself to have, trying to grasp at what they are and how they
Family: Second son of a wealthy family. His older brother took over his
father's title and duties while his younger siblings all seemed to find work
in the intellectual professions of teacher and clerk.
Drak: Ore Genkiki (m) from Castle DesCas
At noon, the castle vibrant and lively with the sounds and smells of
lunch, Lilith announced the people in the canteen that Tebanaki's clutch
was hatching. About an hour later aspirants, staff and inhabitants of
DesCas had all finally gathered outside of the deep cavern. The cool
water of it's indoor fountain chimed pleasantly but did not help soothe
the tension in the air.
When the door swung open and the black-gold Tebanaki appeared everyone held
their breath. In the silence that followed only the tapping of little claws
on stone floor could be heard as 24 little feet set foot in the room.
The six draklings sat down in front of their mother in one neat row.
Tebanaki's fifth drakling, an ore, turned out to be male and he took his
sweet time looking over the remaining two aspirants, two actors from one of
the villages around Descas. Much to the dismay of his plant brother who got
held back by his mother when he tried to cut in.
Finally he stood up and stepped towards Bearn, the older of the two.
Well-manicured and finely clothed the man did look on top of his game.
"My name is Genkiki." the ore said, "it'll be a pleasure to work with you."
It was finally the plant drak's turn and he could barely contain himself
when he ran more than walked toward Tatar. Swishing his tail in dismay he
uttered in a quiet voice, "I understand my mother when she said a true man
lets a woman go first, but why did I have to wait for my brother when he's
"Does that mean you would've rather paired Bearn?" Tatar asked slyly.
"Such a boring man? No way, at least with you I'll have fun."
This comment caused disapproving looks from several knights to be turned on

"Have you heard?" Genkiki
"What?" the actor and judge asked.

Bearn waited to let the information sink in. He was amazed to not feel any
envy or anger at that bit of information. But then his problems with Tatar
had been about his style of acting. The man was young still but had grown in
the recent years. Both of them hadn't had time to act professionally. But
both had also kept up their craft by giving little performances for the
inhabitants of the Castle. And Bearn had to admit that Tatar had grown as
both a man and an actor. His performance had deepened.
"That's good for him." he finally answered.
"Would you want to be in his place?"
"I considered it for a moment. But that job would mean even
less chances of acting. Besides we have an important job to do here. I guess
I'm happy with my role in life and all the roles I'll be able to play
here." Tatar decided.
Genkiki nodded, content that he'd asked the difficult question and to have
gotten a reply that was both calm and sure. The ore drak looked in the
distance and said: "I would have liked seeing
some of these places though. Imagine the wonders on other planets."
"Nothing is stopping us from visiting while we have free time. I'm
certain Tatar won't mind a little visit from his old mentor." Bearn
"I'm sure he wouldn't."
Bearn and Ore Genkiki joined the Desert Light Armada as Judges.
