Description

Sun-kissed, blonde locks fall about a pleasantly symmetrical face dominated by large, blue eyes, full lips and framed by thick eyebrows. There's something almost wholesome about Lhiannon's fair features accented by the tell-tale promise of laugh-lines in the making, but her carriage at 5'6" speaks of a contained intensity, movements controlled and deliberate. The physical training required of a dragonrider has sculpted muscle and afforded definition to her arms and legs, build lean and athletic. She appears to be somewhere in her mid-thirties and wears the shoulderknot of a weyrlingmaster's assistant from Fort Weyr, braided with a cord of green.


Common Knowledge

  • Holdbred, well-educated, hell-bent on precision.
  • First joined the weyrlingmaster staff in early 2728 as a junior assistant.
  • Impressed Fjainoith at Fort out of a clutch of Kouzevelth's and Velokraeth's in late summer of 2725.
  • Those who knew her prior to Impression would once have known her as harper Hanalee.
  • Worked in the weyr's archives for about a turn prior to her Impression.
  • Moved to Fort Weyr in mid-2724 after a five-turn post in Southern Boll.

Harper Knowledge

  • Trained in history and archival preservation; not very artistically or musically inclined.
  • Apprenticed under then-journeyman Yuon before their respective promotions.
  • (She remains the redheaded woman's favorite protégé.)
  • As a senior apprentice, contributed to an anthology of Fort's mountain folklore.
  • Rarely Known Member of the network of harper operatives trained in espionage and information dealing.

History

Meeting proud, wintry Fjainoith at the end of summer 2725 gave holdbred Lhiannon both a new name and a new life. Harper journeyman Hanalee arrived at Fort Weyr from Southern Boll in mid-2724 to begin her second posting in her late twenties. A former apprentice of master harper Yuon before both were promoted, Hana has been generally known to be friendly and relatively easy-going (if you ignore the way she lines up her writing utensils and compartmentalizes her food), but those who only have ever known her as Fjainoith's rider are more often shown a woman of some reserve. She was almost never seen filling in for the teaching harpers prior to her Impression and to this day, tends to make herself scarce when performance opportunities arise. At present, she and her green serve on Fort's weyrlingmaster staff and fill in for transport jobs to-and-from Harper Hall as those duties allow.

Dragon

Sovereign of Snow and Sorcery Green Fjainoith
So delicately pale and yet viciously enduring, this regal green looks as though she has been carved from the heart of winter itself. Wrought in Siberian beauty, there is a look of fierceness and pride to her aristocratic features, chilling in their deadly, enrapturing elegance. She is all sharp angles and sweeping curves, feminine and powerful, severity further aided by immense height and the intense manner with which she comports herself. Cracked serac neckridges push from the depths of her hide, the wild winter winds that formed them sweeping away glittering neve that clings to her heights, exposing hoarfrost creeping in glacial greens over what was once a tentative touch of life. Though this allure of spring clings to her deepest depths, stalks her every movement, it is but a flicker of faith held in polar suspension, never truly aging. Her wings - long, tapered, well-balanced to match her frame - are uniform only in the way color fades from the pale shiver of ancient ice to the elegant matte of polished sea-glass, edges trailing along her flanks with all the billowing drama of an overlong cloak. Winter holds dominion here, with warmth and hope but a distant memory, for though her talons are jewel-like, sparkling just along the inner curve, long toes have been sculpted with battle-bred lacings of brilliant adamantine. The effect evokes dark imaginings, as though each hint of true emerald were the broken shards of summer's soul captured in endless, icy casing, fettered from release as long as she draws breath.


Firelizards

Of Roses Divine Gold Fairytale
Upon first observation, there is much to presume about this dainty little gold. Her stature is diminutive, her posture practiced, her visage held regally despite the wicked cut of bone structure. Ruffled wings are swept back and low, worn more like a train than pinions for flight. The careful tuck of paws up against her chest whilst seated almost hides the sparkle-white brilliance of overlong claws, elbows nearly shrouding the prominence of ribcage streaks that marr her otherwise scintillating, rose-touched beauty. Alas, that is where things begin to fall apart, for you see, where her demeanor implies a princess, she is undeniably a queen. It's there for those that deign to spare her a second glance, there in the way burnished gold writhes and wroughts over her shoulders like armor, the thorns and vines that flow from floral grace making her wings an impassable tangle, an impossible barrier. A sword of near-white light blazes down her spine from brow to hip, cross-guard circling her neck in parody of a choker, a singular citrine gem dotting the center of her throat. This is a gold whose chaos and beauty have long intertwined, who has made herself the hero of her own story when no others would do.
