Spring, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights:
Red Cyanide

Upcoming Hatchings:
Amber Era

Western Hold welcomes new blood in the form of a young couple, Lord Holder Basasius and Lady Holder Baria. A grand Gather is being hosted by Western Hold to welcome their new Lord and Lady.

While the new Lords settle into Western there has been talk and speculation about the western continent's other Hold. It has been two turns since his wife's passing in the south, when will Lord Callum decide to take up a new wife?

Spring has woken an abundance of plant life across Pern with intermittent spring showers helping to sate the growth's never ending thirst. With the end of snow and cold comes Thread once more; Dalibor's wings have no doubt been reduced due to losses over the winter but none the less they persevere.

18 Turns.
Dalibor Weyr.
Dragon Candidate.
Age-Out Date:


Confrontational: She doesn't like you. That's what she wants you to think. She'll feed you to the wolves. She'll tear you apart. These are the exact sorts of things she wants you to believe. She's the girl you'll love to hate. She'll push you over the edge, but don't expect her to stick around and watch you fall. She'll have you believe her heart is blacker than night. In reality, her heart was broken... Shattered, and destroyed, she gave what pieces that were left to the wind. Her tone is often scathing, and unforgiving. She desires for the world to perceive her cruelty as having no bounds, because the pain of it all is too much. On the outside she is calm and cool, but throw your bait and she'll bite. She can't resist. She knows better, yes, she ought to be above it all. Despite knowing better, she can't manage to be the person she once was. She feels-oh does she ever feel-but she bleeds in silence, away from prying eyes. She can't give herself to anyone, not again. Secretly she wants something-craves something-but her fear holds her back. She'll require ones time, patience, and strength.

Controlling: Rowen likes to be in control. She has been deemed bossy before, though being in control is simply what makes her feel most at ease. She has plenty of ideas, and has yet to realize teamwork is important. She tries to take charge, and assume leadership, regardless of whether or not the situation warrants it. She has the most faith in herself, scarcely trusting others. She prefers to work independently, demanding respect from others that she has yet to earn. When forced to work with others she'll make do, though the urge to take control will always nag at her. The girl acts as if she can treat people however she wants. It is likely that Rowen will come to piss off the wrong person, and have to deal with the repercussions. In short, the girl acts like a princess. Is it all an act?

Oversensitive: It's wisest to not try to tell her anything... She takes criticism to heart, and tries to whip it back at people tenfold. While not precisely vengeful, in the moment she can be gravely harsh. She has zero tolerance for being hurt, and anyone that tries to hurt her is going to get theirs. She will, and does, fly off the handle in severe circumstances. She prefers, on whole, to keep her hands to herself. Contact wigs her out, and is likely to make her snap when she's not ready for it. She has a lot of attitude to give, and give it she does. She'll do just about anything to protect herself, which scares even her. She's got a survivalists mentality, and refuses to play the part of the victim.

Hardworking: For all that Rowen doesn't strike people as perfectly stable, the girl is hardworking. As the old saying goes, it comes down to the "eye of the beholder". Not everyone is as they appear, and Rowen is no exception. When set to a task she will go above and beyond to prove she's the best choice for the job. She isn't afraid to get her hands dirty, or exhaust herself performing tedious labours. She'll work herself dead if given the chance, using work to temper herself and find her centre. She doesn't like to talk while she's working, expending as much energy as she can until the job is done. The pace at which she tends to work is breakneck, which others have expressed concern over in the past... It is clear that the girl believes she can work her troubles away.

Mature: For all that she has an attitude, and comes off as one who is easily triggered, Rowen has an underlying maturity that is cause for astonishment. She understands the way the world works, and what is required to keep it working. Most of all she understands people, and how they function, and tends to be a fairly decent judge of character. Rowen's inner persona does not match her outer portrayal, not by a long shot. She prefers to understand people, even those whom incur her wrath. Scarily perceptive, Rowen sits back and watches people rather than taking part. A wallflower among men, Rowen spends a good chunk of her time trying to understand the world and piece together the things to which she has yet to understand. She hungers for knowledge, and wishes nothing more than to have all of the answers. She has yet to accept that some things in life happen without reason.

Loyal: Once you have earned the woman's trust, she will forever come to your aid. Rowen protects those whom she truly cares about, even if she couldn't in past... It matters to her to be there, now, for the people whom she loves. As it stands, no one fits this description, and so her cold, brutish, demeanour is all that people have come to know. She loves deeply, intensely, and truly. Her love is obsessive, and, in equal parts, dangerous. Impulsive in the face of her desires, Rowen is all about taking risks. No risk is too great when it comes to something she truly wants. It will take Rowen some time to accept her innermost desires, and, too, to discover them. As it stands, she wishes only to survive...

Long black hair rests just above her chest, wavy and unruly. A cowlick swooshes her bangs off to the left. The girls eyes are blue, like a stormy sea, with tints of grey. She has a rounded, baby face, and rounded chin. High, accentuated, cheekbones draw attention to her smaller mouth. Her small nose is slightly upturned. The bridge of her nose is not perfectly slanted but rather reveals the slightest inconsistency. Her forehead is relatively high, often covered by her hair. Her jawline is fairly pronounced, for a young woman, met with unusually small ears. Dark brows, thickly-lined, arch expressively over long, dark, lashes. The girls complexion is clear, and untainted. Her neck is adequately long, connecting to a pronounced collarbone. Long, dexterous, fingers connect to average-sized hands and shorter arms. Her lean form outlines her wider hips. The girls long legs are well-muscled. Standing at a shorter than average height of 5'4", her confidence is hardly effected.

Dressing in neutral shades, exclusively, the young woman thoroughly enjoys black. The majority of her wardrobe suggests as much. She dresses modestly, though she's been known to wear clothing that best reveals her form. She's commonly found in tight-fitted clothes. Leather boots are her per usual footwear, matched with a form-fitting leather jacket. On the rare occasion she does decide to wear something more "colourful," she'll don navy blue.

TW: Abuse
Rowen was the product of a girls first crush. Pregnant at fifteen, Rowen's mother met with Swithin one last time to let him know of their shared burden. Once the girls parents found out, she was shipped off to her relatives in High Reaches Hold. Heartbroken, all Rone could think of was Swithin, and how he'd never meet the baby. A part of her wonders, to this day, whether her life would have been different had her parents let her stay. It wouldn't be until her daughter was seventeen that she told her about her biological father, and so Rowen was left to deal with the monster that was her step-father Gaven.

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
Raised as a prim and proper young lady, Rone was made to tell everyone that Rowen was her little sister. It wasn't until her aunt and uncle had married her off to one of the Holds eligible bachelors that the truth came out. It wouldn't have made a difference in Rowen's case, since Gaven took a liking to her straight-away. Rowen was only five when the abuse started. Her mother was intent on protecting herself, afraid of speaking up. Rowen was subdued, made to endure until the day her little brother Roan was born. In a few Turns Roaan was the new target, and Rowen, well, Rowen knew she had to leave. She never forgave herself for leaving the boy behind...

The only sense of relief the young woman found was in a man who, for a good part of their relationship, remained nameless. When his name was finally spoken it was by another woman. She can still hear the shouts, the hurt, the pain, as if she's right in the room watching it all happen. Every time she closes her eyes, every time she dreams, she's back there... She's back there watching it all happen, with her father looming over her in the corner of the room. Hard-pressed to shake her ghosts, Rowen has struggled for Turns to make sense of who she is, and, what's more, who she wants to be. The treachery, the lies, eat away at her. It was this betrayal, by the man whom shall forever remain unnamed, that gave her the courage to speak up. When she did, her mother chased her off as if she was nothing more than a stray cat seeking refuge in a place she was no longer welcome. Her life quickly went up in flames, and, just as quickly, she was handed a new opportunity.

The man saved her from herself, and for that she was eternally grateful. (If only she could have helped him in the time to come). After being Searched by X'rex's brown, Rowen was quick to accept the offer to come back to High Reaches Weyr. There she began life as a Candidate, pretending as if the girl she once was-the girl with an endless ability to trust and give-was dead. She made few friends, keeping mostly to herself. She never saw X'rex again, for shortly after his dragon was killed fighting Thread. The man all but disappeared, and she carried on with her candidacy. She stood for a queens clutch and was left standing. Deciding she wanted to be even further away from her home, she requested a transfer to another part of Pern.

Her mother urged her to go find her father-her biological father-so that she could have a real parent. Rowen, unwilling to rely on anyone, had no interest in searching out a man who merely shared her blood. She felt as if she could take care of herself just fine, and needed no one. Little did she know that Dalibor Weyr, the Weyr she was on her way too, was where the man and his wher were. Had she known, she may have never gone... It's hard to say, and hardly matters given the fact that Dalibor was, indeed, where she wound up. It's at Dalibor that the girl will come into her own. The Weyr holds faces both old, and new, that she will be forced to face.
