Wedding bells ring out to celebrate the joining of Lord Callum to Lady Shuli. A grand gather has been put together with people from all over Pern coming to celebrate! Crescent is full to the brim with those who wish to show their support and those just looking to make (or spend) a few marks!

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.

Name:
Inali
Gender:
Female
Age:
18
Sexuality:
Heterosexual
Location:
Dalibor
Rank:
Dragon Candidate

Age out:
Autumn 21

Personality:
Inali is a self-centered, suspicious and blunt individual. She thinks of herself and her own goals, unless thinking of others might further herself, then she’s more willing. She does, however, have a very strong moral compass, even if others might not fully see it… And it’s a bit self-serving and nit-picky in terms of what will and. She will readily stand up for those that don’t stand up for themselves, mostly out of frustration.

She is a very domineering individual, that will jump in front and take charge of anything she’s allowed to. Usually because she feels she can do it better than others, though she’s very often willing to listen to advice. She’s also very vocal when she thinks that advice is stupid… Unless she needs that person’s assistance.

She is fairly manipulative and has no problem lying or otherwise convincing people to follow her. She is strangely encouraging towards those she feels sorry for.

She oozes confidence, and moves with the grace of someone that is very assured of themselves, chin up and looking down her nose at others.

She is very respectful to those that outrank her, sometimes going so far as to be in awe of them. Though, whether or not this is another attempt at manipulation is hard to tell.

She is spoiled and used to getting her way. Not doing so tends to throw her off guard, but she is very concerned with her public appearance and is very good at hiding her true feelings.

Appearance:
Inali is short. And flat chested. But otherwise very well built. She has hips that might be considered ‘child bearing,’ and is fairly well muscled. She has dark skin and black hair hangs nearly to her waist with dark eyes hide behind thick lashes.

She possesses a fairly narrow face that tends to always look judgemental or at least annoyed. A long nice and high brow give her a distinguished look.

A lifetime of work has left her muscled and strong, not that one can tell with her fondness of flowy dresses and pretty things. Even with this fondness, she has no problem getting dirty or doing what must be done.

Family:
Indonar - Father
Okinala - Mother
Odonar - Brother (older)
Okidal - Brother (older)
Ondilar - Brother (older)

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
Appearance: _________ is such a dark, dark blue that in the darkness, all one can see is his pale face, which appears to be almost floating in the air on its own. His build is very stocky and yet while he has muscle under that dark hide, Inali will definitely have to be sure he does not get pudgy or even fat--he would gladly consume everything in sight if she allowed him to do so! He is a creature built for stamina. He has a thick neck and tail, a broad chest and shoulders, and muscular legs. His wings are very large. Perhaps it is because he is stocky that they are large enough he can easily hide behind them, as he is often wont to do when he's feeling the need to hide or be shy. His light periwinkle blue face with its symmetrical markings above and below each eye make him stand out easily in any crowd.

Personality: ________ hates to be parted from his. He will grow very lonely and seek her out if she leaves him by his lonesome too long, and much prefers to accompany Inali anywhere and everywhere, following her around even if it's from a distance where he thinks she cannot see him if told to stay behind! He tends not to make much sound in general, being a quieter individual. When he does, it's little, soft sounds--unless there's food involved. In regards to food, ________ can become quite troublesome. Fed too many sweets, which he loves--much like his clutchbrothers Kero and Spinel!--he will become boisterous, loud, and troublesome; quite the opposite of his usual quiet, well-behaved and eager to please self! _________ is very easily trained, obeying and understanding simple commands with no issue. He often learns by example and is very adaptable.

In truth, _______ is near obsessed with Inali. He wants to spend every waking moment with her, and to have her approval and to 'help her' in any way he can. This includes trying to anticipate her needs and to do things for her--even if they are things she does not necessarily want him to do! Bringing her shiny things, without often understanding that these things belong to others. Bringing her food, without caring where it came from--including the plate of someone else. He always, always means well. There is not an evil bone in this blue's body. He is sweet, selfless, caring, and just wants His to be happy and for everyone to get along. He is very snuggly, content to cuddle up while Inali is still, and wanting to sleep beside her at night.

_______ is saddened when Inali lies or shows a self-centered attitude. It is 'not nice' to him and he wants His to be nice, and to be perceived as nice. He really wants his to learn to care for others like he does--because caring is something that will make everyone happy, and see her with friends! And ______ does so like to make friends! He can't bear it to be un-liked, which makes him easily influenced by others around them, no matter the species. He tries to copy their actions, and while he will not do anything he feels is 'mean' or 'not nice', he can be manipulated until he learns otherwise. When this happens, ______ will feel very sad and betrayed, and it will take patience on Inali's part to cheer him up. She is his world, after all, and he wants to be with her, always.

Why Inali? ________ is Inali's opposite in just about every way. He is not confident, but shy and unsure. He is kind, caring and selfless. He chose her because he saw that they could help one another, and he thought he might be able to make her heart open up more, to care like he cares. Inali can benefit him by helping him be more confident and by encouraging him to be the best he can be. He will make mistakes and doesn't always do the intellectual thing, yet his little heart is in the right place, and he will grow to be wiser and wants very much for His to approve of him and love him as he does her.

Made By: Ruriko
Art By: Ruin
Inspiration: No Face - Spirited Away


History:
Inali was born the only daughter and youngest child to a pair that bred and sold runners near Igen. They were fairly wealthy, their stock proving quite adept at winning races at gathers. She was very quickly spoiled, being much younger than her brothers by several turns and her mother’s only girl. She was denied very little and given anything she wanted, resulting in a snotty little girl that had very little luck socializing for the obvious reasons.
While this should have taught her a lesson, it did not and she wound up slowly gathering a group of friends through respect and manipulation… And because she got into a fist fight when someone made fun of a younger girl. Inali jumped in to defend her and wound up with a friend for life, even if the girl was two turns her junior. This resulted in the girl’s sister also befriending Inali and giving the girl her first female friends. The pair of sisters quickly proved to be happy to do whatever popped into Inali’s head and Inali proved happy to lead them on their various childhood adventures.

Being the smallest and lightest of her family, Inali was usually the one to ride their runners, which is where most of her skill lay. She entered no craft, excelling in no one skill and knowing full well that her future lay with a (likely arranged) marriage so that her family could succeed. She was okay with that, mostly. A good marriage meant a good standing. And that was what Inali wanted in life.

She was betrothed at 16. He was the son of another wealthy holder and while he wasn’t a Lord or something equally fancy, he would do. He mysteriously died while they were out riding together. While it appeared he had fallen and hit his head on a rock, rumors flew that Inali had killed him because she disapproved of the arrangement. She hadn’t and argued in her own defense, though no one was ever charged with anything, the rumors remained and her parents found it increasingly difficult to find an appropriate marriage for their daughter.

It hardly mattered. A turn or so later, she was Searched at a Gather and accepted, transferring as soon as she could to Dalibor, where she suspected the likelihood of anyone hearing the nasty rumors about her was slim to none. She Stood at two hatchings at Igen before she transferred, not Impressing and letting that sour her opinion. She carried on, deciding that there was nothing wrong with her, her dragon just wasn't there. And that was okay. She'd go to Dalibor and no one would know the cruel rumors and her dragon would find her there. And that would be that.

Adoption Preference: Transfer

Dragon Preference:
Gold (I'm aware this is a long shot and will involve a lot of waiting, if it is to happen. I'm more than okay with that.)
Gold >Red > Burgundy
Reasoning: Inali needs to learn that others are just as important. Impressng a Queen that shoves responsibility on her that isn't just self-serving would do well to help her realize this and give her a good dose of reality. (While also, initially, feeding into her own ego.) My end game is for her to be more charitable and less self serving than she currently is, but she will likely retain just as haughty and arrogant. (Kinda a Kylara v2 with less sabotage.)



Cross Impression/Subqueen Impression okay: Yes to both

Unwanted: None

Personality prefs: Queenly? Something regal and haughty is always good, but Inali needs something to balance out her own level of arrogance. Something compassionate, considerate and caring would be excellent. Someone willing to remind her that she needs to look out for others.

Unwanted personalities: Childish, prankster.

Injury is also acceptable, so long as not life threatening.
