Description: Ahynna has the same blond hair and blue eyes her younger
brother Sven has. In stead of making her look gorgeous, the bone structure
of her face with lots of straight edges and pronounced features, makes her
look strict. And she is in fact not a woman to handle carelessly. She has a
sharp tongue and knows how to use it. The punishments she deals to those
younger than her are never just boring, they're always a lot of work and aim
to learn them something of value.
Pets: Day Faerie Sinsa (f)
Drak: Earth Guposri (f) from Castle
Wind Umynri let her knight Rhean close the doors to the deep cavern and
guard them. She had said with her life, but it was unlikely that anyone
would try to enter. Even if anyone did break into the castle, the deep
cavern lay several stories underground, lighted by a system of small tunnels
The aspirants had gathered in the nearby mind-pairing chamber and the small
fountain of water was frequented more than the heat alone would explain.
Stinga and Ahynna were conversing near the tables with food. Stinga eagerly
taking the offered diversion. She still twisted her hands though while they
talked about their villages which weren't far apart.
The last two draklings, the male desert and the female earth left their
mother simultaneous. They both sat in front of the two remaining aspirants
who'd moved closer together. Ahynna simply waited. She'd been invited to one
of the castles long ago but had only now decided to actually stand for a
clutch. To her it was simply something she couldn't ignore anymore.
"I'm Guposri, Ahynna." the earth female said.

Flying high above Acicade Ahynna clung tightly to Guposri's neck. Winds had
been blowing strong all day and trying to avoid collisions with other riders
wasn't easy in such a busy airspot. But the two of them needed to show their
skills as the place for High Knight of the new Opus III armada was at
stake.Ahynna and Guposri had slowly climbed the Armada ranks, getting more
and more responsability and earning the trust of the older riders. Now they
just needed to prove to the High Prince and Princess that they were made of
the right stuff.
The two of them had practiced endlessly the past weeks. And now in this
jousting tournament it didn't seem as if they'd practiced nearly enough.
Much more experienced, older knights were competing and it seemed as if they
wouldn't stand a chance.
"Don't be ssso peshsimistisc, knight". Guposri
interupted her thoughts.
"I know it's bad luck."
"I'm more than able sk to deflect some bad luck. But
you mussst keep your head clear or we won't be able to dodge that falling
Just barely Ahynna managed to throw her weight away from the incoming
projectile. Again feeling the pressure Ahynna tried to remain focused.
Adversaries came and went and most of the time she saw that she could keep
the upperhand. Unlike some of the others she was still in her riding gear
and Guposri had not yet been wounded. Fast and agile the young drak seemed
to be able to outfly some of the other contestants.
Two hours later mistakes were being made more often. Knights were getting
tired. Some had given up with injuries ranging from slashed wingsails to
broken bones. Ahynna and Guposri were still in the air. Clutching her lance
tightly she wondered how many were left. Before she could try to count
however one of the other remaining contestants lunged toward her. Dodging
Ahynna once again appreciated the way Guposri moved along with her. They
were as one.
"We can sstill go on for sceveral hoursss."
"I'll make sure we don't have to." Ahynna said, her jaw locked in a grim
The two of them twirled around and started to give chase to the knight pair
that had tried to crush them. To her surprise Ahynna noticed that they were
the only ones left. But this idea was fleeting, easily lost in the
adrenaline rush that took over her mind and body. With a roar she drove
forth her lance and felt it hit.
And then it was over. They'd done it, they'd won.
"It's real." Guposri assured her, and then
added "High Knight Ahynna."
Ahynna & Guposri joined the Opus III Armada as High Knights at Acicade
