Inri's History

Expanded +Info


The second child of a fisherman and his wife, Inyri was brought into a loving family that while not wealthy by any means was at least for the most part happy. Her childhood was spent on the shores of Breakwater Hold, a rustic and quiet minor hold at the north of Fort's lake. Being essentially a small fishing town, everyone knew who everyone else was to some extent — it was a quiet and comfortable environment, a good place to grow up. That is, unless you didn't like the small-town attitude, but most anyone who didn't left as soon as they could.

Inyri wasn't one of them; she showed no interest in having any intent to go anywhere else at all. No craft, no traveling, nothing; she spent most of her time at the pub her mother worked at doing Harper studies and doodling and entertaining people with stories when they weren't entertaining her with their own. She had quite a few friends, and was regarded as a good-natured girl who never did much of anything to stir up trouble. It seemed as if she was going to be one of those who was born, raised, lived and died at Breakwater, and one of the few who didn't essentially live on a boat.

Without much explanation, though, all of that changed a few months after Inyri turned eighteen — there was some whispered gossip, but no one could entirely figure out why the girl had left. Either way, one day when one of the Weyr's dragons came for a pickup, Inyri left with him, and never turned back from Fort Weyr. She's gotten herself a similar niche in working at the Gemstone Tavern, and remained just as good-natured and sociable as always. Whatever spurned her sudden departure from her family, it never seemed to be something that got her down.

She was at the Gemstone for nearly a turn when Zuvaleyuth took to the sands with her and Velokraeth's second clutch. It was the Weyrleader's dragon himself who insisted that Inyri Stand, and with some slight apprehension — due to this happening before her friend Ezra who wanted to stand and hadn't been asked — she accepted. No one was more surprised than she was when it was Cloaked in Storms Gold Kouzevelth who chose her. (As far as she was concerned, that was two life plans ruined: first she wanted to be a barmaid forever, then she thought maybe she'd ride in Thunderbird …)

But Inri, as she was now named, for Kouzevelth took the y right out adjusted okay. Slowly, but she adjusted. Other than a minor scare when Th'ero first taught her to between — they took a bit longer than they should have to come out again — weyrlinghood wasn't all that much trouble. Even aside from the clashes with Gold Hill Hold.

With graduation came becoming Junior Weyrwoman properly. And with that came work. And becoming a real, bona fide Adult, something that in her early twenties Inri had to work very hard on. She didn't have any of the things her traditional upbringing would want of her at this age: a service type job, a family of her own, a nice little cabin in the mountains … but she had a dragon and a job she was getting to be good at. So she has remained, through two different Senior Weyrwomen, a blip with an extra Weyrleader and a lot of other changes.

Timeline

  • Age 2: Younger brother Cowal is born.
  • Age 5: Younger sister Aifric is born.
  • Age 7: Inyri and Aifric already hate each other.
  • Age 8: Younger brother Seoras is born.
  • Age 12: Inyri begins working at her family's tavern.
  • Age 16: Inyri is promoted to barmaid on her own right, and enters an on-off relationship with Cailen that on-offs for the next two turns. These things may or may not be related.
  • Age 18: After breaking things off with Cailen yet again and finding out that she's actually pregnant, Inyri decides to transfer to the Gemstone at Fort Weyr and uses it as an excuse for a long trip between.
  • Age 18: Becomes bosom besties with Ezra, an important friendship that will mold a lot of the rest of her life in some ways.
  • Age 18: Alongside Khyonai, is asked to Stand by Th'ero and Velokraeth. Inyri turns nineteen while a candidate.
  • Age 19: Impresses gold Kouzevelth in Zuvaleyuth and Velokraeth's clutch, becoming Inri.
  • Age 20: Little brother Seoras stands at Zuvaleyuth and Velokraeth's next clutch at the surprising age of 12 and Impresses brown Zemnenith, becoming Se'ras.
  • Age 21: Kouzevelth's maiden flight. She is caught by Dremkoth and lays 8 eggs, which hatch into two bronzes, two browns, two blues and two greens.
  • Age 23: Kozuevelth rises and produces a tiny little clutch of four.
  • Age 27: Dtirae steps down as Senior Weyrwoman, leaving the knot up to whoever's dragon rises first. Most of Fort expects Inri to be the next Senior, but she isn't so sure, and is content leading the Weyr by coalition until it's actually Nyalle's Kayeth who rises.
  • Age 27: Kouzevelth rises and is caught by Tovihasuth, laying an absurd 14 eggs.
  • Age 28: Inri and D'ani finally start taking steps to becoming more than friends, though they don't quite make it officially anything, at which point Inri loses her reputation for sleeping around - rightfully, as she stopped.
  • Age 29, mid-spring: Kouzevelth rises and is caught by Kainaesyth, whose rider isn't present at the flight, leading to some interesting complications. The clutch is a solid ten eggs, however.
  • Age 29, late spring: Officially starts calling D'ani her weyrmate, though as far as anyone can tell she just started wearing a ring and saying so one day; with the clutch on the sands there wasn't immediately any sort of formal celebration.
  • Age 29, late autumn: Kouzevelth's clutch with Kainaesyth hatches, producing ten healthy dragonpairs — even if a couple of them don't quite look flightworthy. One brown, two blues, and seven greens.
  • Age 30: Gives birth to first child, D'ani's daughter Maiona.
  • Age 32: Toward the end of Inri's 32nd turn, her previously adoring weyrmate breaks things off; she's never understood what went wrong or why feelings that had persisted over a decade and through relationships with other people had suddenly evaporated.
  • Age 32, even more late that turn: Kozuevelth is caught by Ashwin's Rinxyth, her first brown suitor who actually managed to catch. While the clutch is very small, with only four eggs, they all hatch bronzes.
