Copper Zelsk shook things up at the Copper Class graduation feast by beginning her run shortly after the knots were delivered to her handler. Bronze Osk won Zelsk's maiden run and now a sizable clutch lays on the sands hardening. Not to be outdone by the ground-bound copper, Copper Laanasuth took to the skies the very next day - though her flight was not as cut and dry as the wher's run had been. Offended by the force catch attempt of a presumptuous burgundy Laanasuth betweened to High Reaches Weyr where one of their dragons won her flight. Though she has returned to Dalibor and laid a large clutch for Dalibor's candidates the Weyr awaits the transfer of the dragon sire and his rider, Dalibor's newest Junior Weyrleader.

Basiliare, Wher Candidate
Member Inventory: View
When people think of Lia, they think of someone who is rational, practical, capable, hard-working and responsible. She is very much able to take care of herself, in every sense of the word. She can cook, hunt, fight, mend her own clothing, and she is in great shape so that she can keep up with even the toughest of boys her age. She tends to not complain, and she has little patience for people who do, or who are lazy and don't carry their own weight. That said, she can be quite harsh and critical of others who don't meet up to her standards. She doesn't seem to care much for weakness in any form that she perceives it to be. She has always done for herself, and often others, so feels people should at least try to do the same for themselves. Lia is a perfectionist who is near obsessive about doing things right. If it isn't done right, it is to be done again. And again, if need be. Methodical and sure of herself, she is careful not to screw up--she hates failure. She is more harsh and critical of herself than anyone else, after all.
Stubborn, she doesn't like to admit she's wrong. She is very headstrong and often thinks she knows best. She has her pride, and her sense of honor--both are easily wounded if she respects someone and receives criticism. She isn't the sort to care what just anyone thinks of her--or so she tells herself, and tries not to. It's safe to say she is ambitious. She wants to make a difference, and carve a path for herself that will mean something to her. As a wher candidate, she hopes to bond a wher that will be a good match for her. She admires strength, and has always admired the larger, fierce but noble, whers. She admires strength and competence in all people. She is very decisive and persistent. Once she puts her mind to something, she will find a way to get it done. What she lacks is the ability to know that sometimes, you need the help of others. She takes the weight of the world on her shoulders and thinks she can go at everything alone. She needs a wher who can uphold her just as she will it.
Lia isn't the greatest at making friends. She tends to be blunt and too critical--even judgmental. It's not like she tries to look down on others, or to push them away. At the core, she is a very honest, loyal, honorable and even caring person. She is very bad at showing the last. Her advice is always hard advice: the truth of the matter. She thinks that if people would do as she does, it would fix things, and so advises them to 'be more like her'--which isn't the right thing to do, nor what anyone wants to be told. With relationships of a romantic nature, she isn't the sort to flirt or show interest first. She tends to be of the mindset that if someone likes her, they will let her know. She doesn't take into consideration they may be shy or need her to show some interest in them. She thinks she is, when she isn't being obvious in the least. It will take people who are willing to get to know her and understand her to unlock the true nature of her person.
Play-by: Alexandra Daddario
Lia stands at 5'8", a fact that she doesn't mind considering her sister is nearly two inches taller. She is very physically fit, well-defined muscle, while not bulky, is definitely present. She keeps her dark brunette hair on the longer side, letting it fall down her back where it is slightly wavy mid-way down. When she is working, it is tied off to the side in a braid. Her blue eyes are wide, clear and vibrant, with a darker ring of blue around the outer iris. Even without any lip-stain, her fuller lips tend to be a more reddish tinged hue that gives the illusion she may be. Her skin is quite fair, so her cheeks tend to have a hint of rosiness to them most of the time. She has no qualms or thoughts one her appearance save that it is satisfactory and she is self-assured enough to know she is confident enough in it.
She prefers to wear black most of the time. She also prefers leather. Jacket, boots, trousers...she isn't particularly given to wearing impractical clothing. She dresses for comfort, clothing that she can move in but still look satisfactory in. She doesn't care much for jewelry and so owns only a single ring and necklace, only the ring being worn often since it was a gift from her elder sister upon her transfer to Dalibor. It has a garnet stone set in it and is silver. She doesn't care for impracticality that comes with jewelry that can get caught on things.
Liaren (44, greenrider, mother)
Bastien (51, Mastersmith, father)
Alairea (21, bluerider, sister)
Born in the fall to a greenrider mother, Liaren, and Mastersmith father, Bastien, Basiliare was born into a good family at Benden Weyr. She has an older sister whom she looks up to named Alairea, a bluerider. Alairea was five turns older, and so they were not that far apart in age. Their mother used their father as a flightmoth, since she was Hold bred and still hung onto some of the morality that the Hold had taught her. So it was that she and her older sister were fortunate enough to be raised by both parents.
Lia was always mature for her age, perhaps because her primary role model and friend had always been her elder sister. They were different people yet shared the same desire to do well, the same practicality. They both knew what they wanted for themselves. Alairea Impressed a large blue named Riveth at seventeen turns of age. Lia was happy for her sister, and knew that Alairea would have liked if she Impressed as well. Yet while Lia liked dragons, her real interest lie with their smaller kin, whers. She decided that she wanted to bond one, even though she ended up being Searched as a potential dragon candidate.
Lia found she didn't always get on well with people she'd only just met. People who grew up with her seemed to adapt to her bluntness, and learn that she wasn't as uncaring as most who didn't know her thought her to be. Still, she even managed to push some of those people away. She tends to keep friends around her sister's age rather than her own, and has no real interest in boys her own age since most of them, to her, are too immature. Still, unlike her sister it is the male gender she seems most interested in, at least for the time being.
She might have been fairly average in intellect, but her hard working nature saw her excel in everything she did as far as lessons went. She never gave up, and persisted so that she was always doing the best she possibly could do. She was easily a favorite of those who taught her, since she paid rapt attention and everything she was taught, stuck. If she didn't get it, she asked questions and studied until she did--usually it was basic enough that she had no issues.
She was accepted as a wher candidate at thirteen due to her maturity and reputation as a responsible, hard-working and practical girl. She had stood at a hatching prior, and was left Standing--but not sorry for it. She didn't end up bonding for a couple of turns at Benden, either. She was disappointed that she didn't manage to bond, and feeling restless. Always one with an independent streak a mile wide, she asked if she might transfer Weyrs to see what life struck out on her own was like. She found she was far too clingy and demanding of her sister's time, and wanted to gain more independence on her own terms. The transfer was accepted and Alairea took her to Dalibor Weyr the next sevenday.
Preferred Wher Name:
SubQueen Impressible: Yes, but only if Dhiren gets a queen.
IF POSSIBLE, AVOID REPEAT COLORS. LOVE DIVERSITY! c: DNI S-QUEEN WHER UNLESS DHIREN HAS GOTTEN QUEEN. SAVING FOR S-QUEEN TOKEN FOR DHIREN. DNI IRON WHER. SAVING FOR BRONZE TOKEN.
I would love a viridian for Lia. She's my favorite choice for this color wher. Basilisk was always a gold, but since I really want the priority for queen to go to Dhiren or s-queen if he doesn't get that, and s-queen red to be left open for Keirian in case he doesn't get a red dragon, viridian is what I've been picturing and has become my favorite. Again: I don't mind waiting. Still, I have her open to other colors as well. c:
Viridian > Gold > Copper > Bronze > White > Green > Gray
Blue > Black > Iron > Burgundy > Purple > Tan > Pink
- strong of mind
- No disabled dragons/whers, please.
Only very minor, nothing lasting mauling allowed. Nothing above the neck, nothing beyond minor scarring.
Preferences will be subject to change as I Impress with others. Things will likely alter and open up, as necessary, but I do want to give a chance to get different dragons and not all the same or fighters.
