Description: Servase is a young man
with cropped sandy brown hair, brown eyes and freckles. He is of medium
height and muscled, especially in his upper body, because he swims and rows
a lot. His skin is fairly light despite spending a lot of time in the sun.
Servase doesn't like to cover up, preferring to feel nature on his skin.
Personality: Servase is relaxed and unconcerned about anything that doesn't
involve his own circle in the world. If he wants to take a day off, he will.
Others will take over the work or people will pay up to get him to do his
work. If the waves are right or the weather is nice he prefers to swim. The
word stress is alien to him. If money is tight Servase supplements his
income by catching fish to sell. Since he doesn't have a family to support
it all works out.
Occupation: Servase ferries people from Meer to Darau and back.
Family: Parents and older sister
living in Meer. They are close but he doesn't need to see them daily.
Pets: Aquarium (adopted at Dawn Castle)
Drak: Night Flirtsask (m) from Baskar
Servase never wondered if Issnidi and Mary would reappear. They'd promised
and though Tanguy could be a handful, he wasn't a bad guy. Maybe an hour had
passed in total, but since it had been afternoon when the entire scuffle
started, that meant that evening was now colouring the sky in red and
"I didn't want to suggest it to the others, but I've gotten a request
for Baskar Castle too. The place is a bit unstable and it might not be
completely safe. I didn't want to send the girls over there but you seem
like you'd be able to fend for yourself."
"What about Tanguy? He's a peacekeeper."
"He'd be too rigid for Baskar. I'd imagine a scoundrel would fare
better over there."
"Being a pretty boy won't hurt either."
"Take me there." Servase said, grinning.
The few weeks since Kyensa announced that her hatchlings would bond went by
quickly. On the day of the Feast, the rain drak was, however, nowhere to be
found and the hatchlings were lead into the Hall by their sire, fire Kavsk.
There was a bit of grumbling about this - it was traditional for both
parents to be present, after all - but many of those in protest were shushed
by those who had a good idea of why Kyensa was absent. She had lost her bond
- this was not an event in her life she wanted to remember.
As it was, Kavsk arched his neck proudly and - after the energetic
hatchlings had settled into a semi decent straight line - announced their
"My lord and lady of Drakholm," the
fire said. "I present to you Talsask of the
earth, Solsksa of mud, Coisksa of the forest, Tisask of plants, Vansksa of
water, and Flirtsask of night."
Rune smiled and nodded. "And welcome they are, Kavsk of
fire," he said. "Let the feast begin!" With that, the six
hatchlings bounded forward and began to meet humans for the first time in
their young lives.
The hours rolled by with food, drink and song. Tables were cleared out for
dances and the hatchlings mingled with those who had found their way to
Drakholm on their own, or had been found by the two remaining seekers within
Arvalon. As the merriment died down, Kavsk nudged his now equally tired and
excited offspring back to the center where they sat facing the Lord and Lady
of Drakholm this time.
Tylar stepped forward and waited for the crowd to die down before speaking.
"It is time for you to make your choice," the seeker said.
"Come and tell all here who it is you wish to choose so that this Hall
The first to step forward was Flirtsask who pushed two of his siblings out
of the way before walking right up to Servase. "I choose you," he
said and sat down proudly. The young man hesitated, seeming to look around
him for a moment in confusion until the night sighed and the young man
grinned. People applauded while the new pair made their way to stand behind
the five remaining hatchlings.
Servase's name was recorded by Oriana, Drakeholm's resident historian and
record keeper and other draks paired, or did not as two of this clutch
decided to do. And then it was done. As the Hall settled, Tylar Hardel stood
and announced the final choices of the draks present. He then returned to
his wife and two children while the Hall returned to the final celebrations
that would no doubt last until the early morning hours before life at
Drakholm would resume its normal activity.
trained by Theo and Night Argeloos
Servase had returned to Castle DesCas early as people at Drakholm were still
working in the shadows. He couldn't care less, he had a drak and was heading
home for training.
"What's the desert like?" Flirtsask asked.
"I lived on one of the islands, I honestly think it might be like one
big beach. Although without the water that might not be as fun. So hurry and
grow up so we can fly to the sea to go swimming." Servase joked.
"I'll do my best." Flirtsask vowed.
The young night drak was always helpful and thoughtful, thinking of others.
it was maybe due to the intelligence that was innate to all night draks that
made Flirtsask so considerate. He might be small, but he had a big heart for
others. Not least of which his rider.
"Remember to enjoy your life too." Servase said, "The sea
will always be there."
"Will I meet your friends?" Flirtsask asked.
"You might." Though Servase wouldn't call all of them friends, he
was hoping to see some familiar faces.
Servase and Flirtsask joined the Desert Dawn Armada
