Warm tones of sienna brown seem to flow over the angles and curves of this young brown's body. His hide seems dappled with reddish browns and as he moves it seems to glimmer subtlety. Lighter shades of russet highlight a slender, tapering snout with wide, flaring nostrils and unusually large eyes. Eyeridges and headknobs are less prominent, darkening to a browned copper. The long, almost serpentine neck is a sun-baked terra cotta, ridges smooth and not particularly pronounced on the mobile neck and down the back creating a line of dark chocolate down his spine. The body of this dragon is fluid with smooth lines, lightening to a warm orange-brown in the belly area but darkening outwards gradually from there across the wingsails to the nearly black tip of the wings. His legs and hindquarters are trim yet well-muscled, ending in ebony talons. The remarkably long tail is extremely slender, tapering gradually to it's dark chocolate tip. Virochanth's large, mildly opalescent eyes, whirl at a normal enough pace, eyes absorbing all that he can see. His curiosity and a bit of impatience is reflected deep within the facets, though it takes a truly perceptive one to notice.


Egg Name and Description

Pyre of Rebirth Egg
Flames of red, orange, and yellow seem to engulf this large, bright egg, dominated by a brilliant yellow-gold. Flecks of dark, coppery-gold splatter across the smooth surface like glowing sparks dancing in the flame. Shimmering aureate streaks catch the light and create the illusion that the surface is in motion, shifting subtly. The colors seem to darken from a bright, light yellow-gold at the peak, deepening in fiery cascades to a deep, burnished red-orange-gold, finally plummeting into a base of soot black. From the base curl smoky, finger-length tendrils of silver-gray but they, like the dark underside of the egg, are nearly concealed by the sands of the Hatching Grounds.


Hatching Message

A black chasm suddenly splits the fiery shell of the Pyre of Rebirth egg. At first nothing seems to happen and the egg lies still but with a sudden jerk, a damp wing bursts through the crack, splitting the shell in two to reveal the Hatchling within.


Hatchling Name and Description

Personality

Intense, passionate and wildly dramatic, this dragonet loves attention and is highly emotional and enthusiastic. Perhaps he is silly at times - like his odd penchant for singing - but he has a hot temper that flares with little warning and subsides just as quickly. He is impulsive at times but will always be there for you, his rider, and will provide surprising wisdom in times of need or when you least expect it.

Growing Up: This dragon could be summed up in one word: intense. Everything he does, he does with passion and drama and it might even seem silly at times. For example, he'll always want to be the center of attention, even if it means sporting red-spotted flight straps and 'singing' in front of the entire weyrling class. Hey, it could be fun, right? Music fascinates him and his melodious bugle will often be heard - frequently enough so that people get tired of hearing it. « Don't they like music? » he'll ask with indignation. That's another thing about him - he has a temper. A very hot temper that flares when you least expect it to and when he's angry, he's a veritable whirlwind of emotion and fury. He'll never actually hurt anyone but he WILL complain loudly and thrash his tail wildy so staying out of the way would be a good idea! Fortunately, his temper abates as quickly as it rises and he will act like nothing happened at all. He might even start 'singing' again. And he won't understand if you ask him what happened so asking would be pointless. His enthusiasm knows no bounds and he'll always want to try everything first - flight, between, aerial manuevers, you name it. He wants to know everything and thus loves exploring and asking questions and though he seems silly, he has a surprising wisdom that shows through when you least expect it. He's yours through and through and will always stand by you through thick and thin despite his apparent independence.

Why: I chose you because I think you need some fun in your life! Sometimes it seems you've grown up too fast and I want to remind you of what fun it is to be young and playful. You can I can have so much fun together! I'll always be there for you - we'll be the unstoppable pair! Watch out Fort Weyr, here we come!


Mindvoice

Tendrils of Inquiring Flame
The mind touch of this dragonet changes with his mood, varying in shade and intensity. The colors of his touch are the colors of flame - reds, oranges, yellows, and golds - and his touch will always be bold, never timid. His mindvoice is like a rush of emotion and color, generally warm but sometimes made hot with excitement or anger, occasionally even seeming to spark with energy. Everything this brown does, he does with passion and this can be felt in his mind voice. He is dramatic, almost comically so, and the intensity of his mind-touch reflects that. At times, it will seem like a burning whirlwind in your mind but the warmth will always be a comfort when you're down. Beware when he's angry however! Things could heat up pretty fast!


Inspiration

Bright, eternal, and wise - those are the marks of the mythological bird the phoenix or fire bird. There can only be one phoenix alive in the world at any given time according to legend and when it felt its death drawing near at about 500 years of age it would build a nest of aromatic wood and then set it on fire, consuming itself it the flames. From the pyre would spring the new phoenix, ready to begin the cycle once more. The Pyre of Rebirth egg represents the nest of the phoenix consumed in flame, ready to give way to the birth of the new generation. The phoenix represents not only immortality but individuality and rare qualities as the phoenix was forever the only one of its kind. "His flight was like the flashing of light, his plumage was beauteous, and his song ravishing," claimed Hans Christian Anderson in his story "The Phoenix Bird" and in addition, the phoenix was renowned for its great wisdom. The name Virochanth comes from Virochan, the Hindu word for fire.
