Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Darcy is a curvy girl, with more curves than she might appreciate. She is still in the in between stage of girlhood and womanhood where her body is something of a stranger. Darcy is somewhat pudgy, and her own view of herself only exaggerates her discomfort. She has thankfully stopped growing vertically at 5’6” however. Her face is heart shaped, pale and easy to see a flush. In the Arolos climate she’ll grow darker. Her eyes are blue, with dark slanting brows and a serious expression. Her mouth is full and pouting but when she smiles her teeth are slightly too large and crooked in the front. Her hair falls past her shoulders but she rarely keeps it down. It’s a curly dark red and likes to frizz just when she wants the curls to be tight and glossy.
Personality: Darcy is an awkward girl, scared of making mistakes and making people angry. She feels guilty whenever anyone watches her eat which is why much of her meals are taken alone, and filled with sweets because they make her feel better. Darcy was raised to be a well mannered child, almost annoyingly so. She needs to let her hair down and have fun. Good luck to anyone who wants to try.
History: Darcy was born late in her mother’s child bearing turns, and so is an only child. Her father, an important man at Lemos Hold, was considerably older than his wife, Drea. While Darcy rebelled against her mother in her early turns, kicking and screaming when she didn’t get her way or her sweets, she was a sweet child with her father who she adored. But he died when she was nine turns and seeing her mother grow cold with grief, especially towards her daughter, Darcy decided to be a good child that would make up to her mother all the bad things she had done. She is still waiting for her mother’s forgiveness.
Information about Darcy's pets
Pet Name: Midori
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Waltz Egg:
Personality: The little green inside this egg has an heir to her, almost as though she were a gold. She demands respect, but she isn't as arrogant as some golds could be. Luckily for the new pet of this hatchling, they will learn that the little green is an ally, seeking to command other flits, even sometimes dragons, to behave when misbehaving.
Information about Darcy's dragon
Dragon Name: Lilannith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Eternal Sunrise Egg-
Personality: She is the type who will push herself to the extremes of her abilities out of sheer spunkiness and a love of adventure, and it will be up to her lifemate to watch her in order to make sure she doesn't over exert herself. If allowed, she will push herself to the point of collapse-which her lifemate will likely discover early on in lessons. She is never put off by such episodes even if she needs to be rescued and will cheerfully repeat her behaviour once recovered. It is something she is unlikely to grow out of and her lifemate will have their hands full.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
