Hair Red

Description

Hair of dark red frames a face fair some might think. Eyes of green change with her moods from darkest hunter to spring green, while golden flecks of sunlight sparkle in their depths. Her heart-shaped face sports high cheekbones and a rounded chin while a dainty nose marks the middle, coming to a stop above pink lips. Her smile is like a breath of spring, and her voice is soft like summer rain. Fair is her skin, smooth and unblemished, marked only by the occasional freckle. Tall is she, hitting the 5'10" mark, body filled out nicely with curves that leave any hint of being willowy with her height behind.

When at work or in class as often is the case, she is dressed in sturdy trousers paired with a tunic who's weight is fine for whatever the current season may be. Generally, her hair is pulled back and braided to lie along her back out of the way.


History

Born and raised at a cothold just outside Southern Hold, Kassala was the youngest of five kids born to farmers. After the family visited Ierne Weyrhold after an older brother was Searched, a curious Kass found herself at one point, turned about, and in the Dragonhealing school. From that point forwards, it was her desire to become a dragonhealer, her natural inclination as a caregiver serving her well. When she turned 14, her parents took her back to the weyrhold where she joined the newest class starting. She's been there since, seeking to learn as best she can how to take care of Pern's largest inhabitant, now as a Rank 2 dragonhealer, with Rank 3 on the horizon.

Just shortly after her 18th Turnday, she'd meet up with an old family friend, Riohra. The two had often hung out, for the traveling hunter's family and her own, were good friends. Friendship turned to something more between the two, and while she remained at the school, and he found a posting at Fort Weyr, the two would often be seen together whenever they got the chance to be together.

Kass was searched in the Market one day (RL: Summer 2017) by J'en and his lifemate, Leketh, just a week after Riohra had been Searched for the clutch that sat on Half Moon Bay Weyr's sands. Joining him there, she dove into all the fun of candidacy that included a few incidents with glitter. When the dragons began to thrum and the eggs began to wobble, she made her way out onto the sands with the other candidates. Eggs broke, dragonets laid claim to their lifemates, but both Kassala and Riohra would be left behind.

It's then that Kass decided to follow Riohra to Fort Weyr, and after gaining permission from both the dragonhealers at school, and Fort Weyr's leaders, she made a home there to see what the future might bring.

Fire Lizards

Yarrow aka How Does Your Garden Grow Green Hatchling: Bonded at HMW during Candidacy.
Speckles of green mingle across the hide of this firelizard, like an herbal blend that shifts from the pure green of basil to the yellowish shades of yarrow on her belly and the purple tinge of lavender along the sails of her delicate wings. Nowhere is her hide just one color, but the mixture varies to make a halftone effect that's soft pea-vine green on top gradiating smoothly through lime juice and into speckles of yellow on her belly, while the shoulders of her wings slip through blue-green rosemary out along the spars before a sprinkle of violet and borage joins the leaves of her sails. Her tail is one long sprig, a sweep of green with a white two-petaled flower at the tip, while her neck is a bundle of chamomile whose yellow and white blooms sprinkle her face.

Cyanos (given blank): Bonded at HMW during Candidacy.
Brilliant azure streaks his thin form, tracing the shock of wildly curved headknobs and smattering down his sinuous throat to splash in a wild array of blues and greys that glitter across his scant shoulders and back. Cerulean perks his huge wings, spraying fine lines along sparbone and over filmy fingersails. Mischievious to the core, he can often be found in the middle of the fun… or the latest chase!
