Hatching 3 November 2013
Pern date 8.23.11.03
Strange Waters Egg
Blue Beckarth - Maarkl
Appearance wise, Beckarth is your average blue. Neither too long, nor too short, too thin or too thick and with a hide the shade of a cheery blue sky.
Based on Carson Beckett
Mesmerizing Strings Egg
Green Lottieth - Veralidaine (Daine)
Lottieth is one of the smallest greens to grace Arolos. With a compact body and slim legs, she will almost always be lighter than most of her sisters. Her hide is a very deep hunter green with lighter streaks of green running down her legs. As a young dragonet, her legs will look almost spindly because they’re so long and thin for such a small body. She’ll grow into them, but she will always be a lanky looking green.
Based on Charlotte - Charlottes Web
Calm Waves Egg
Brown Wuledorth - Somahren
Wuledorth will never be a bulky dragon. From the moment of hatching he'll be a light brown colored, long, thin dragon. As a result he'll favor speed over stamina, which means the likelihood of him ever catching a gold is small. On the other hand, his ability to flame will be among the best.
Based on Dumbledore
Swirls of Chaos Egg
This chaotic egg, while it will certainly attract some admirers, will most likely become a headache to those who like order and organization. A few might even spend a bit of time contemplating how they might be able to straighten it out so it's less of a mess. The design on an egg though is permanent and the Swirls of Chaos Egg won't be changing for anyone. The best people can hope for is that the dragon inside won't be quite as messy as his or her egg.
Blue Saewylth - Kaerene
Saewylth will burst from his egg with all the dramatics a hatchling can manage. And from that moment for the rest of his life, everything this tall, thin blue does will be done as dramatically as possible. He likes the attention that comes with it and when he can get others to laugh because of what he does, all the better. His hide is one of the lighter shades of blue, with little variation other than on his face where he has several darker coloured splotches that will likely have at least a few people thinking of freckles.
Based on Fred Weasley
The All Knowing Eye
Will anyone be worthy of the dragon within the eye? Will anyone dare to touch it? Gaze back into the depths of its stare and you'll see your own face reflected on the smooth shell. It is after all, nothing more than an egg.
Brown Hardreth - Malvik
Hardreth is a long lean bordering on gangly dragon whose hide is the warm comfortable shade of well worn, scuffed leather. Reminiscent of his egg- though a not quite as creepy, he always seems to be alert and quite observant. He's even prone to listening in on conversations, dragon or otherwise though he does tend to keep his findings to himself or a few of his select, closest friends including his lifemate.
Based on Harry Dresden
Amethyst Threads Egg
Green Ioath - Pohnwin
Some greens are feminine and then some are almost masculine in looks. Ioath falls into the latter category. She will be quite large for her colour and her dark green body will be unusually muscular in a built more suited to a brown than a green. As a result she will be significantly slower and less agile than most of her green sisters, but the trade off is a little more stamina and strength in breathing fire.
Based on Iolaus
Wind Blown Egg
The real question though, is what type of dragon will come from an egg that seems to be trying so hard to pretend to be gold?
Brown Sharseith - Aurion
Sharseith hatches an average sized brown and will remain that way his entire life, he’s more lithe than bulky though giving him an edge on speed and acrobatics compared to bigger browns and bronzes. His hide is a dark shade of brown except on his front legs, where lines of a much lighter brown cover crisscross over the dark brown colour giving the impression that Sharseith somehow got numerous cuts on his legs that ended up scarring.
Based on Kelsier (Mistborn)
The Vine Wrapped Marvel Egg
And the dragonet who is trapped beneath the tangles will win its freedom come hatching day!
Blue Chakkerth -
Chakkerth is a large blue, among the largest at Arolos. When full grown, he’ll rival some of the smaller browns in size and, as a result, he’ll be one of the few blues who, on most occasions, will be able to last a full Fall. His hide is a dark, deep shade of blue over most of his body, but his chest and face are both a much lighter shade of blue.
Based on Kerchak (Tarzan)
Ominous Red Egg
Most of the egg is covered in a very dark red, with just enough waves of lighter red to suggest moving liquid. On one side the red becomes much more vibrant, though no less suggestive of blood. Worse still, if one looks close enough, there almost seems to be an outline of a dragon rising up out of the red pool, head colored in the liquid.
What dragon inhabits his ghastly egg? Does anyone even want to know?
Green Liolath - Niri
One would expect a dragon that came from such a disturbingly dark egg would be equally dark. Instead out hatches a beautiful, light colored green. She'll be a lithe, agile dragon even as a Weyrling. Once she is able to fly few will match her speed or ability for aerial acrobatics.
Based on Lestat -Queen of the Damned
Glass Burgundy Egg
Green Moegoth -
Moegoth will be a long, but more lithe green. Her body will be a darker green, but head, tail and extremities a little lighter. The first impression many people will think is that she is a very good looking green, but for those that take a second look they might just feel that there is something just slightly off about her.
Based on Mother Gothel
the Spikey Egg would certainly qualify. From a distance the egg looks brown and like it is covered in spikes that will stab anyone stupid or daring enough to approach. Of course on closer inspection, the egg is smooth like all dragon eggs. Also more obvious is the fact the the egg isn't merely shades of brown and tan, but greens and even lavender mix in.
Bronze Amsafuth - Stanver
Amsafuth will be a beast of a bronze. He'll be long and muscular, without quite reaching the extremes of both. His body will be a light bronze, his head and neck almost mahogany.
Based on Mufasa (Lion King)
The Gold Diggers Folly
But don't blame the sweet little dragonet inside! Surely it had nothing to do with the cruel, teasing nature of its shell! Its not lying, curled up inside its egg, counting the frantic tears of frustration that have surely been shed over its striking black wedge. And it is a pretty egg after all, charming even when compared to some of the creepier eggs that Zivath has managed to produce.
Green Pacanth - Ulrink
Dragonets hatch starving, wanting food almost as much as they want to find their lifemates and Pacanth is no different. When this green hatches the first thing she’ll think of is food and that will be the case throughout her life. Even when she’s not actually hungry, Pacanth will go around looking for something to eat, and will eat it whether it ought to be eaten or not. This habit will make her a prime target for thicktail not only as a hatchling, but as she gets older too.
Based on Pacman
Poison Poetry Egg
However, not all is roses with this egg. There is something cold about it, its beauty too distant, too forbidden. After all, if a gold candidate has sworn to herself that she is gold material, is it really a good thing that this egg might make her question her allegiance? Sometimes it isn’t good to mess with fate.
Blue Mereeoth - Nyla
Is that a real blue or a brown with a blue hide? Mereeoth is a very large blue with a lustrous, deep sapphire hide. His is nearly perfectly proportioned as well, not overly muscular and yet not skinny either. His wings are the lightest shade of his body. While his size makes him a powerful flier, he will not have the same stamina his brown brothers have. It will be up to his rider to bring him back to the ground when Mereeoth is sure he can go longer.
Based on Romeo
The Slashed Furs Egg
There's a roughness to it though. Streaks through the furry illusion almost as if giant claws had torn into the pelt but still, it stands proud and dangerous. Old hunters, wise hunters might advise the youngsters to avoid scarred beasts. They are fighters, they are fierce, they are the ones who win their battles and stand firm to roar again. Of course its only an egg, but doesn't the shell often give a hint at the dragonet within?
Blue Scarleoth - Fefiliau
Long and lowslung, lacking in strength but gifted with a sinuous grace and with a hide as dark as the depths of a sapphire, Scarleoth seems to be the type who would slip by, unnoticed in the shadows if not for his presence. His main distinguishing feature is the slash across his face, from an accident shortly after his hatching that nearly took his eye. An accident that he has placed solely on the shoulders of Amsafuth, and for as long as the two dragons live he will play up his injury in order to manipulate his bronze brother through guilt.
Based on Scar (Lion King)
Dark Betrayer Egg
Candidates might want to be careful with this egg. It is too mysterious, too shifty to trust. Arolos has seen dark, brooding bronzes and browns, and of course there have been those gleefully morbid greens. Responsible parents will not want their candidate children to look too hard at the Dark Betrayer Egg. Who knows what made those claw marks.
Bronze Padakth - Kynedras
Padakth is a bronze who always looks like he could use just a bit more oiling. Unlike many of his bronze brothers, he doesn’t care much for his own appearance. His hide has a deep bronze sheen that just seems to attract dust and dirt. Always on the thin side, with an impressive wingspan that is nonetheless kept sedately folded when not needed, he is an exceptional, clever flier that doesn’t believe you need flash to impress.
Based on Sirius Black (HP)
The Bubbling Trouble Egg
It looks like the red hot bubbles are barely contained within its shell. As if the merest poke or prod could bust it open, which is a silly thought considering Zivath has likely rolled it around on a daily basis. Still, it will take a bit of courage to touch this egg, and the poor thing might end up being left alone until hatching day. After all, there are softer, gentler more welcoming shells to stroke.
Green Smauth -
Smauth is exceptionally large for a green dragonet, by far the largest green in her clutch and even topping most of the blues for the first couple of months until they begin to overtake her. Sporting a distinct acid green hide, she will always be a large green, muscular and bulky and tall enough to loom over her fellow greens. Size brings power, and she will be a very strong flier, one of very rare greens who will be able to last most of an entire threadfall. Unlike most greens she is not very agile, but her strength does make up for that flaw.
