Name: Jefke
Age: 14
Gender: male
Description: Jefke is short for his age, with spiky black hair, light blue eyes and a sincere look in his eyes. Though he's young he's rather dependable and he never lies (or no-one has caught him doing it). He's best friends with Rohn.
Orphanage: 5 years, from the moment his mother and father died.
Pets: Water Faerie Iris (adopted at DesCas after arrival).
Drak: Mud Ahnkara (m) from DesCas.

The last drakling, a Mud male from Merilka's clutch walked up to the only remaining aspirant, Jefke, who'd arrived last at the Castle.
"I'm Ahnkara." the drak said, "Want to take me to the food? And cut it for me in tiny pieces? And maybe feed them to me until I'm full... Oh and! Rub my belly so I can get to sleep after that and..."
"Eh... Of course." Jefke replied and quickly dragged the Mud away before he'd start about what they were supposedly going to do in a week's time.
With that the waiting room returned to it's usual empty state and voices from the adjoining feeding tables could be heard till late in the night while the new pairs got to know each other and bonds were formed.

Trained by Dexter and Mud Xirastos
Knight training

Meeting each other for the first time in two years meant that both boys felt rather insecure and nervous. It had taken their draks this long to mature enough to fly with a knight on their back. Before they had not been able to leave their draks behind to venture across the seas to meet up. Mail had pssed furiously between them so they knew of most changes in their lives and the lives of the others that had lived with them in the orphanage. But now they'd both asked to transfer back to Acicade Castle, the castle closest to their former home, to finish their squire-ships in.
It was Jefke who arrived first, he'd come from the nearby Castle Descas with his drak Mud Ahnkara and hadn't even bothered to make a portal since flying'd be faster. Rohn and his drak Day Upsbenar appeared in the Southern sky only 10 minutes later. They landed and both boys had to look closely to make sure. They'd grown like weeds in the three years they'd been apart and they could no longer be called children. Jefke, though still slender and short, had gained some muscle and looked less fragile than before. Rohn had grown even more and had gained a lanky air with his long limbs. His red hair was as noticable as before. It was Jefke, like always, who made the first move. He stepped toward his friend and hugged him.
"It's been too long." he said.
"Yes." Rohn said, his voice cracking a bit with the emotion.
Out of their sights a meeting of  whole different kind took place. The gentle day drak and the uptight mud drak seemed to find something they lacked in each other and soon they two stood close together, enjoying the feeling of just being together.

Jefke and Ahnkara joined the Opus II Armada as High Knights at Acicade.
Ahnkara found a lifemate in Day Upsbenar (Knight: Rohn)
