Description

arkoss.jpg

'Interesting' could be one way of describing this person at first glance. Born with white hair, he always has the appearance of being old for his age. Keeping it at shoulderlength, but cut at a slant starting from his ears, it seems somewhat ethereal, as if it was about to vanish at any moment. His eyes are a more normal grey color, vibrant and soulful, and his silver eyebrows hover above them. An unremarkable nose, mouth, and chin finishes his basic facial features.
Buildwise, he's tall and wiry for his age, and seems to be made of muscle tying bone together and wrapped in skin. His thinness gives him a somewhat attenuated figure, enhanced by his long arms and legs, the former terminating in long, delicate looking fingers. Clotheswise, well….he wears whatever comes to hand first so long as it fits and is comfortable, if not fashionably correct. No dresses or skirts though, that's not /that/ comfortable for him! The only thing he wears every day are his sturdy wherhide boots and a silver necklace in the shape of a firelizard. On his shoulder is the rank knot and badge of a Journeyman beastcrafter at Fort Weyr, as well as that of a candidate.


History

Arkoss was born to a gardener and a laundress in Katz Field Hold, but as soon as he turned twelve he left the place of his birth to go to Igen Hold. There, he used his experience with runnerbeasts to gain him a spot in one of the stables, though he didn't actually undergo formal apprenticeship. Arkoss just didn't care to go through all the effort, though he probably learned as much about taking care of runners as any apprentice or even any journeyman. There's not much of interest that happened in Arkoss' life, aside from the usual meeting girls he liked, unsuccessfully trying to Impress a firelizard or two….or three…and getting lost more often than not, the poor guy.

Firelizards

Enlightened Demon Blue Kira
Brilliant sapphire and topaz has been dipped in starlight. Large sweeping wings sprinkled with sunlit radience are dappled with midnight and abyssal feather patterns. A gracefully curved neck is covered in moonlight, a tiny argent crescent shape marks the juncture between neck and shoulder like a tiny silver lovebite. His strong chest and lean flanks are smattered with lapis colored ink. A rosey red hue underlies an ultramarine muzzle and face. The slanted cast of his trueblue eyeridges give his face a mischivious almost malicious expression. A long, strong, flexible tail is colored in royal blue, and tipped at the end with ink, a brush waiting to hit paper.

Oldtimer Medic Brown Kadowaki
This small brown's base color is a medium milk chocolate brown spread evenly along his entire body with the exception of reddish swirls here and there, and a lighter color on his hind paws. The red is mostly found on his chest, an almost brick red but most definitely a brown shade that also outlines his neckridges clear down to his tail. The reddish color reappears on his head, swirling in a triangular pattern with the long point ending at the base of his skull. The only other feature is a pair of brown rings around his eyes almost dark enough to be called black, and his eyelids are a pale khaki, almost like he's wearing glasses. He's a somewhat squat firelizard, with a short neck and tail and pudgy body.

Whizzing Through Outerspace Bronze Kryptonite
Bright bursts of ochre bloom across the sides and belly of this bronze firelizard, surrounded by an aura of copper that spreads out like ripples in a pond, emanating across the otherwise dark hide. His eyes are startling bright points in his sooty muzzle, the shadows created by his cheekbones all the more dark for the deeper coloration. His wings are equally dark, the membranes so thin that they seem to be picked through with dots of light like so many stars in the heavens. His long whipcord of tail is streaked up its length by raw umber, licked by fiery gold on the edges where it blossoms into one more flash of ochre on his haunches, forever imprinted by the crater of impact.

Gem Green Kornerupine
A deep emerald sweeps over this stocky green firelizard, her length just below average, but her girth well over. It's not that she's fat, because she isn't, she's just solidly built. Her shoulders seem to bear the brunt of it, large and block-like, the width tapering down her body, wide chest, firm stomach, average-sized rear legs, and slender tail-tip.
