She looks like a gilded statue in the warm glow of the sunset, bathed in tones of gold, tinted with rose. Her elegant headknobs are brighter than the rest of her, almost glowing with bright gold. Ripples of darker, rose-gold, looking much like spilled silk, spill down her back between her wings, flowing down her tail and her legs, which end in midnight black talons. As she spreads those wings, you see that she lightens again, the red-gold of newly minted copper swirls along her wingsails. She looks rather regal as well as a bit demure, a sweet creature in golden hues.


Egg Name and Description

Shimmering Amethyst Egg

Nested lovingly on its own separate mound of sand sits the largest egg of the clutch. A quick look fails to explain this special placement, nor the solbbery attention of it's golden dam. Then, with a sudden flash of light, a sparkling irridescence of gold and purple play over the faceted shading of the egg's surface. The colors of royalty shimmer and shine in compliment to each other and then there can be no doubt of the splendor contained within this royal egg.


Hatchling Name and Description

Warm Sunset Rose Gold Hatchling
She stands on the shards of her egg trying to look queenly and full of grace, and for a moment, she succeeds. She looks like a gilded statue in the warm glow of the sunset, bathed in tones of gold, tinted with rose. Her elegant headknob is brighter than the rest of her, almost glowing with bright gold. Ripples of darker, rose-gold, looking much like spilled silk, spill down her back between her wings, flowing down her tail and her legs, which end in midnight black talons. As she spreads those wings, you see that she lightens again, the red-gold of newly minted copper swirls along her wingsails.


Hatching Message

The Amethyst egg rocks furiously back and forth, small flakes of eggshell dropping to the sands as the insistent hatchling inside pecks her away out of her confinement. A nose appears out of the hole she's made and suddenly a massive crack appears, and the shell falls apart, leaving the hatchling standing on the hot sands, glistening in the light. She blinks a few times, and peers into the crowd assembled in front of her. A fitting audience to the entrance of a new queen.


Impression Message

Gentle swirls of Gold and Amethyst embrace your mind, swelling with a love and affection that seems all encompassing, as if this is the whole world at the moment. A warm joy spreads throughout your thoughts as that golden voice softly whispers to you « You are the one I have waited for! » The voice goes on, gently insistent « I am Orianath and I am yours. »


Personality

This hatchling will always be different with her rider than with others, be they dragons or people. On the surface, she is quiet and demure, with a slightly shy streak that will disappear with time and maturity. With others, she will be regal, always aware of her duty to her Weyr. With her rider she will be more playful, willing to splash around in the water, occasionally making humorous remarks about people, dragons or events, but only to her rider. Where she loves, she loves unconditionally.

Why: You and I will go far together. We both love our fun and games, but with my sense of duty and your willingness to get the job done we will dazzle everyone with our abilities. We will soar together, we will work together, you and I were made for each other. I chose you because of all these things, and because you, of all the girls on the sand, will best represent the whole Weyr.

Growing Up: Growing up, Orianath will develop her grace and her humor, and may outgrow her shyness. She will be interested in all doings at the Weyr, rather than the small world of the young dragon, and be of great comfort to you, her rider.


Mindvoice

Gentle Swirls of Gold and Amethyst swell up in your mind with a feeling of total love and devotion. The presence in your mind is one of comforting familiarity, humor and perhaps just a little bit of mischief.


Inspiration

The egg, as you can see, is inspired by the royal purples of the precious gemstone Amethyst. The hatchling inside is loosely based on Princess Diana of the United Kingdom, as well as a mingling of the personality preferences of her rider.
