Toula is young woman of average height, with shoulder-length, light brown
hair, brown eyes, a rather large nose and full lips. She likes to wear
functional, well-fitting garments with traditional patterns. She lacks
obvious muscles, except for her arms which are the part of her body she
trains the most intensive. She works on stamina a lot too.
Personality: Toula grew up in a loud and boisterous family where
someone was always shouting or arguing. But they all love each other and
keep in touch. Family gathers are wild and loud and Toula wouldn't have it
any other way. Peace and quiet are things she can live with, but she can
only relax in a place with a lot of stimuli.
Enjoys: Music, Excitement, Fairs.
Dislikes: Having to stay quiet.
Toula was rewinding at a crowded bar after a prolonged hunting party that
took place deep in the woods. She'd had to remain quiet, not only to not
scare off the prey they were hunting, but also to keep from alerting other
predators of their presence. She'd just had gotten unlucky in being
selected for such a mission. If she'd found anyone willing, she'd gladly
would have traded that one in for three weeks of guard duty.
Gulping down her beer, Toula paid the bartender and headed out. the night
was young and she had plenty of places to be and people to meet. Just
being back in the city energised her. She could just feel her body and
mind perking up as if she was a plant that had finally gotten water after
a period of drought.
A sudden twinkle caught her eye and curious, Toula went to investigate.
Maybe she should be more cautious, but nothing bad had ever happened to
her in the city. So when more light appeared around her, Toula just smiled
at the beauty of it all. Maybe she'd drunk a little bit too much. Usually
though she could keep her liquor, but she hadn't drunk quiet as much as
she usually did during the hunting trip. Maybe she'd lost some of her
endurance. Blasted mission.
"Maybe I should go sleep." she told the little lights.
And suddenly they dimmed, dwindling away.
"Awe, come on, you can stay alight, I don't mind."
Instantly the light returned and in front of her was a yellow and cream
dragon with a large horn, wings and a soft furry tail.
"Can I join you?" the dragon
Toula smiled and wondered if there had been anything wrong with her drink,
but she nodded and said:
"It's not much but what's mine is yours."
After all, as a soldier she really didn't own much.
"I shall gladly take what is yours and share
what is mine." the dragon nodded and added her name: "You
may call me Orana."
"Toula." Toula reciprocated and added: "You know, you're
going to be such a hit at the barracks."
In response, Orana rubbed her head against Toula and steadied the woman
with her tail as she led the way to her sleeping spot.

public displays of affection. She is quite confident in her own hide and

*Functional magic: Orana has a way of making
things around her shine and look more interesting.
Orana and Toula had moved slightly after their meeting and had gotten a
small cottage just outside of the city where they were expected to keep
guard. Toula hadn't been getting any more hunting missions since she
couldn't exactly take Orana and they both insisted that they shouldn't be
separated. This wasn't technically true, but nobody could verify that so
it did the trick.
Which was why Orana asked her bond one day:
"How about we take a vacation?"
"What's that?" Toula asked.
"It's when you get a break from work and you
go see some places you've never been."
"Interesting, we don't get those here."
"I know, it's highly frustrating that people
have not revolted to claim those rights here." Orana
"So how are you going to get it?" Toula asked.
"Easy. I will ask maternity leave. I'm
pretty certain they don't expect pregnant women to fight or guard,
"There aren't many female soldiers, but no, those that are with child
get time off."
"There. I shall put in a flight request at
one of the Nexus planets and we can stay there until my eggs hatch. And
maybe have some fun in the meantime?"
"Sounds wonderful. Pick a place with lots of sights."
"I know just the place!"
