climate. She has green eyes and square facial features that give her a
Personality: Gertruth is all but stubborn. She is a total pushover and has a

and to pacify people who are arguing.

Darau and 5 siblings (1 sister, 4 brothers).

Gertruth was taken by Issnidi when she returned. She let out a relieved sigh
that she wouldn't have to stay with one of the two men. At least with the
two of them together they could keep an eye on each other.
"Were they bothering you?" Mary asked.
"I just want to disappear." Gertruth exhaled and told Mary of her
"It's good I took Katalyn to Acicade then." the knight chuckled,
"If you'd like to stay close, I can drop you off at DesCas. Covering up
is all the rage and I know the people there are decent. My Issnidi hatched
"Thank you, I'd like that." Gertruth told her.
Forest Nahosdi knocked on the door to the Deep Cavern and let the sire of
her clutch know that the draklings were ready to head out into the world.
Gri´kisdu wasted no time and alerted the officials. The both of them had
been at DesCas for the past months and would remain to train some of their
draklings before they would return to Savannah Castle. Although the Fire
drak was not homesick, he was growing restless and getting away from guard
duty and getting back to training would be a relief.
The aspirants were led into the deep cavern; 3 male and 2 female, all but
one Icarian. But it wasn't the alien that had Gri´kisdu worried. She was a
warrior and would hold her own. No, the fiery sire of the clutch fretted
about the long haired chef and the pushover baker. His knight must have
caught his mood as she hissed:
"Not all draks and knights must fight."
"But they should at least have the potential." Gri´kisdu
insisted, albeit quietly.
Before they could argue more, Nahosdi started to talk. The whispers and
chatter dimmed as she welcomed the aspirants and spectators. She then took a
step to the side and turned, giving all present a view of the 5 draklings
she'd raised. Blue, green and grey subdued colours were plentiful, but a
single radiant red fire stood out among the lot of them.
The full green plant drakling took a few steps forward and looked up as
several fairy draks, quite a few belonging to the aspirants, had gotten into
a little scuffle above the heads of their respective owners.
The male managed to snatch a desert one as it flew in front of him and
deposited the offending fairy back with his owner, Gertruth.
"I do believe this one has impeccable taste,
But maybe he needs a little discipline?"
Gertruth grinned despite her very obviously upset pet. She was still feeling
a bit scared about being looked at by so many, but something about this drak
made her think no-one would get away with badmouthing her ever again.
"He's normally very well behaved, it must be all this excitement."
She gave the plant drakling a questing look and he supplied: "Obdidu."

Knight and Entertainment Training
Gertruth did her best as Marion thought her once again about the way to
handle a crowd. Aside from the actual knight training, the knight to the
mother of her drak had been teaching her how to be more confident and how to
act in a way to make others leave her alone. Progress was slow as some
things Marion was teaching her were so contradictory. But apparently they
worked as Gertruth did notice a change in how people treated her.
Or maybe that was Obdidu's influence. Her growing drak had quite the sharp
tongue on him and didn't mind giving out a lashing to those who spoke ill of
"It'sss only normal for uss to protect each other."
Obdidu had told her on many occasions.
As they trained and grew, their bond grew stronger and they trusted each
other blindly. Gertruth would not hesitate if Obdidu told her to jump in the
path of danger, and she believed he would do the exact same. Luckily there
wasn't much danger about. But maybe that would change as soon they would
enter the Desert Dawn Armada.
