More than Simple Spots Egg
Many want this particular egg but there is one who would do anything to get it. Perhaps that’s why the egg hides? Looking closely, you’re shocked to see… could that be… no, is that… a tail along the back? How odd…
Green Pachieth - S'que
Someone should tell this larger than average green that curiosity killed the dragonet! Pachieth is into *everything*! She has the oddest questions for her lifemate such as ‘why is the sky blue? Why do greens get chased? What if *I* want to chase a green?’
Based on 101 Dalmations/Patches
Spring Showers Egg
A musical pattering noise while looking at this Egg may make Candidates look up at the skies to check if the rain is *really* there. If they listen more closely though, they'll realise that the quiet noise actually originates from inside the Egg, from a baby dragon who's impatient to get out!
Blue Repmuth - Aisling
Wake up! Wake up! Repmuth is likely to be an early morning dragon for the whole of his life. Getting up early means that you can see a world no-one else has yet: dewdrops still clinging to the grass, the sun just beginning to light up the world. When the world is still relatively free of humans, you might see a mother whersport shepherding her young back home, or other animals wander out more bravely than they might if they weren't dazed by sleep.

The Innocent Pebbles Egg
The closer you get to this egg the more you will feel innocence radiate from it. A child like charm will capture your heart and make you dream that this egg contains your little hatchling. It pulls on your senses like a shiny bauble that a child would play with. A purity of thought focuses your mind as you stare at its surface. This dragon could be yours.
Blue Bagheth - Glynis
A deep ocean blue adorns this dragon covering it like a shroud made from a midnight sky. He stands like a dark shadow, an inky hue to his hide with markings that show up in certain lights like the pattern of watered silk. A ripple of muscles rolls across his body, indicative of the physical strength present in this blue dragon; perhaps more so than most blues. To the touch the tough hide is softer than down, as though perfectly oiled. Indeed this dragon will need less oil than most to keep his hide perfect and is likely to have few rough patches or skin problems.
Based on Bagheera / Pebbles form the Wolf Council
Green Basheth - Anasia
Basheth is a very pretty pale green, that of a Jungle Vallisneria-- ribbon-like, translucent, pale green; a plant found in many lakes on the Southern Continent. She’s anything but willowy though, and not at all lanky like that of the water plant. When this hatchling uncurls herself from her pretty blushing shell she will come out a little too short. Basheth’s body is perfectly proportioned, she’s not dainty, nor is she too chubby but somewhere nicely inbetween the two. Another prominent physical attribute of this pale green is her eyelids. The very outer lid of the three oddly enough curls up on the bottom edge just slightly. The odd thing about this is she actually looks as if she might have eyelashes of a sort. Of course she doesn’t have any hair on her body, only hide, but the way the lid formed it gives her such a sweet, big-eyed appearance it’s remarkable.
Based on Blushing Bashful
The Artful Misdirection Egg
A playfulness is already obvious as it teasingly sloshes the pale cream shell into gentle waves, the apparently rippling liquid highlighted by faintly creeping shadows. Each wave-made path reaches and laps along thin blackened shores that jaggedly weave around, connecting and crossing almost drunkenly until it's impossible to tell which arrow belongs to which line. Not until having thoroughly confused any observer does the blackness ends as broad sweeping arrow points.
Despite the grand display, the arrows appear to lead nowhere, or perhaps everywhere. A person could look forever and merely continue finding nothing. There's no intriguing explanation or anything else about what the egg might be pointing toward.
Bronze Chescath - A'den
Even freshly hatched, Chescath never has trouble sorting out what limb goes where and typically everything's kept perfectly in harmony with his intentions. Others can't help but assume that he's a large bronze from his severely proud stance and deep, yet lyrical, mental voice. However, that definitively sturdy appearance and graceful, yet powerful, stride clearly deny his mere average size. His hides alone glimmers twice as bright with the shiny texture having a paleness boardline upon unnatural.
Based on Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland
Stop The Egg, I Want To Get Off!
Bronze Reggith - J'yan
On the smallish side of medium, for a bronze, Reggith is a coppery-bronze dragon, with his wingtips discoloring to olive. His hide fades in color rather abruptly on his belly, muzzle, and around his eyes. Short, dark patches, almost stripes, line up on his limbs, back, and down his tail, as well as the side of his head, with sreaking back from his pale muzzle. When he's at rest - usually meaning 'asleep' - Reggith's tail tends to curl up into a tight coil reminiscent of his shell. His paws are rather larger than normal for a dragon of his size, and in fact would fit better on a gold than any bronze, but Reggith simply thinks that they're the perfect size for bouncing.
Based on Coiled spring Tigger
Colours Of Freedom Egg
Meanwhile the Egg is covered in colours which just can't seem to keep still. Every time the Egg bounces or shifts, they seem to shift a little - an optical illusion which could cause headaches if stared at for too long. Here are the colours of the outside world the dragon inside longs for - rich browns and reds, oranges and greens, all dancing together across the Egg's surface.
The Egg's urge to move and be free is an infectious one, and Candidates who watch it for too long may discover an itch in their feet which they didn't have before. The sunshine seems to call them to run out of the Hatching grounds and outside where adventure is undoubtably to be found. Why stay cooped up inside a stuffy Weyr, when you could be running through the thick Southern forests, and seeing all of the surprises they can offer you?
Green Powhath - Alwisa
Powhath's big fear in life will be decisions, and she'll spend her days discouraging her lifemate from making any firm commitment. A weyrmate? Are you really sure? Sure, he's nice, but do you like him THAT much? What if there's someone nicer around the corner?
Based on Colours of the Wing Egg Pocahontas dragon
Murky Mystery Egg
Green Wiquenth - Shalta
There was never a more beautiful green hatchling to grace the Hatching sands at Arolos Weyr. She’s breathtaking with her emerald green hide so richly green it rivals the most beautiful emerald gem in any jeweler’s cache. Wiquenth unfolds herself from her shell and is a delicate beauty from the moment she uncurls her long tail, her long neck and brings forth her majestic wedge-shaped head. Opening her beautiful deep blue whirling eyes anyone watching this hatchling make her way into the world will be mesmerized by her incredible grace.
Based on Dark Magic Mirror
Healer Hued Egg
As soon as the mind gets passed the fact this is indeed a normal egg, the deep purple color instantly brings to mind ‘healers’. This is the exact color of the formal smocks the healers wear Pernwide. Any healer Candidate will be smitten with this egg for its color alone. Perhaps it will call to them- bringing the draconic and the healercraft together.
Green Physeth - Valbrysi
The lovable green that lies within this gorgeous egg is a beautiful shaded green sage. Her hide is perfection without a single variance in color. From head to foot she is a solid color and quite pretty. Not without a few flaws however, Physeth is downright chubby and rather short. Her belly is large with a bottom to match. If only she could be stretched a little bit she might seem more evenly proportioned. As it stands she looks like a little roly-poly and from what the dragonhealers have to say upon her first physical she’s not likely to ever be very long. She has short bones that have never promised great length. Will she always be chubby? Unfortunately, yes. This chubbiness fits her though and she’s so outgoing and impressive that her appearance doesn’t seem to matter at all.
Based on Doc/Clinical Healer Purple
Ow! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Hurts to Look Egg.
Green Bierith - Kathros
Inside this mind-bending egg, is a very small apple green hatchling that is so delicate and precious you just want to cuddle her and love her to pieces right from the start. Bierith is the most fun loving dragon ever. Her limbs are floppy loose and it almost appears as if her wings will never take on enough muscle to be firm enough for flying. Even her fore and hind legs seem to have a rubbery appearance. She will often walk in such a way it seems as if she’d going to trip over her own feet at any moment, which sometimes she does.
Based on Dopey
Blue Yoreeth - Sy'tas
"Thanks for noticing me." Yoreeth's beginnings (and his first words) seem to set the tone for his life. From his egg being buried under sand immediately, to his his hatching coming as a sort of afterthought, Yoreeth expects to be overlooked by everybody.
Based on Eeyore
Blue Cozkuth - Kaira
Physical Description: Cozkuth seems to be a dazzling array of varying blue hues. Somehow, though, the constant shifting of color seeems to work for him. His head and the line of his spine are a dark azure, but the shade moves out from the head and the streak to become a pale sky blue on Cozkuth's belly, tail, and talons.
Based on Emperors New Groove / Flaking gold leaf
Friends to the End Egg
Blue Tocopth - Zei
If there were but one prankster in this clutch, it would be this little blue. Tocopth isn’t afraid of anything and will often do anything if dared. He doesn’t try to be funny and make people laugh, he only wants to laugh himself.
Based on Fox and the Hound
Banded Sky Egg
Green Effendith - N'agt
Well on the small side even for a green, though not quite the smallest green ever to hatch, Effendith looks more like a flit writ large than a dragon, especially upon first hatching. A light vibrant green overall, her hide smoothly transitions to a darker green on her wingsails. Though not gifted with the higher speed of other small greens, Effendith makes up for that with the agility of a feline, able to turn on a 16th-Mark and leave change behind. On the ground, she often looks like she's about to scamper up the nearest tree... or any scaleable object, for that matter.
Based on Genie Egg/Abu draggie
Artistic Beauty Egg
Green Blancath - Novessa
Everyone has an ideal dragon in their mind when they envision dragons-- the perfect gold the perfect bronze and so on. These visions are seldom realized as each individual dragon has it’s own uniqueness and sometimes that uniqueness tends to take away from the ~perfect~ dragon image.
Based on Glass Coffin- Snow White
Charred Clump Egg
Green Grouseth - Tiria
Stubborn, Grouseth has to be the most stubborn green of the entire clutch, if not the last several clutches. This lime green hatchling enters the world with a decided scowl on her otherwise normal hatchling’s face. Dragons, despite common misconceptions are able to get across their emotions with more than just their eye color. Ask any rider and he’d swear his dragon could smile. Perhaps it’s just a tiny curve of the mouth, a tilt to the head, who knew. The fact remains dragons have their own set personalities and they express them in many ways.
Based on Grumpy
Bloody Mystery Egg
But at least it isn't all bad. Beneath the scarlet pattern white gleams, pure and clean. Perhaps after all, there MAY be something good buried underneath the red. Or perhaps not. Anything could come from here - perhaps it is best to be wary.
Blue Igruth - Niraine
From the moment he wakes in the morning until when he goes to sleep at night, it will sometimes seem that ALL Igruth ever thinks about is his stomach. An unwary lifemate might easily overfeed this dragon. It won't help that when mealtimes are done, Igruth will sniff his lifemate over thoroughly, hoping to find some treats he might steal hidden somewhere in their clothing. Any other humans nearby by are fair game for the same treatment, and as for anything a Clutchmate leaves uneaten... well, that'll be gone before you know it. Because of this, it shouldn't take long for Igruth to develop a rather tubby little stomach.

Green Smirxth - Ella
Cheery green, is there such a color? Happy green? A green that you look at and immediately a smile appears on your face. Well, this very chubby little green is so adorably cute in color, shape and size that she can make practically anyone giggle in delight just looking at her. She’s a roly, poly little green and if dragons could be said to smile she was hatched smiling. Her entire demeanor is one of bubbling happiness, and her type of happiness is very contagious. There will always be those who aren’t ready to grin or giggle, but they wouldn’t upset Smirxth, she was just too infernally good-natured to ever be sad for more than a short bit, at least that’s how it seems. It takes a lot to put a damper on her naturally good mood.
Based on Happy /Childhoo Woods and fields
Misty Haze Egg
Pale pinks and blues form hazy clouds around the surface: clouds that try to dance across the shell as you watch them. A large blur forms into a familiar mountain, another looks like a runner and perhaps a third is a face. Is it your imagination or are they real, these changing reflections? It might be a real image or maybe a trick of the light as reflects play over the surface of the egg, making it looks strange.
Green Henth - Teyla
This pale green dragon has delicate feminine features to her that are hard to place. She is a podgy figure, yet she embodies pure dragonisity, if there is such a thing. Fine eye ridges adorn her head, and her head nobs are shaped in a subtle way that accentuates her features. The pale green shimmer to her hide is made up of many colours, all very similar in hue and ranging from a yellowish colour through to a mid forest green. The over all effect is a pale coloured green that appears to shine with a hint of pale yellow.
Based on Hen Wen/Water Mirror egg
Hidden in Stone Egg
Whatever's inside draws you closer, wooing you to see more than the outer surface, for as you know, things are not always what they seem. The gentle soul within calls out for freedom and the chance at a normal life. Will it ever have that chance? Only those listening closely will hear the gentle song and yearn to help fulfill its dream.
Brown Modoth - R'ill
Being the smallest brown of the clutch has left Modoth feeling like an outcast. It doesn’t matter that he’s larger than half his brothers and sisters, namely the blues and greens, he just knows he’s small! He tends to hunch in on himself, unwilling to pretend he’s bigger than he is. If one were to draw him out of his shell, he'd only become stubborn and more withdrawn.

Fuzzy Danger Egg
It's difficult to make out what those larger details are, even when you're further away The sharper edged ones seem vicious - seem to almost just out of the shell, ready to cut an unwary Candidate's fingers. But then they smooth out, softening, seeming almost furry as you continue around the Egg. That part seems so much softer - it's that part which tempts fingers to stroke and feel.
And then it turns into sharpness again, ready to snap your fingers off.
Sharp and soft, vicious and kind - round and round the egg you can go trying to work out which it is and yet never being able to put one over the other. Perhaps it is easier after all just to study the tiny grains.
Blue Aneyth - Myra
Aneyth's worst fault will be that he's easily led. While not bad in himself, it will be easy - too easy - to talk him into doing things he shouldn't. And, as is often the way of such things, if anything goes wrong chances are he'll be the one left to take the blame.
Based on Lion King hyaena / Lion Claws circle
Nebulous Expanse Egg
Yet an unease shimmers from darkened depths- There are too many things happening that minor changes aren't obvious at first, and it is only later that the glowing colours are seen to have become something new and brilliant.
Perhaps the same could be said of the Dragon waiting inside.
Brown Muhuth - N'ren
The first step into the world indicates a vibrant future for dragon and rider. Even in coloration his reddish-brown hide has an almost fiery hue that'll stand out -- providing that his extremely small size doesn't prevent everyone from noticing him. The tiny stature doesn't stop Muhuth and neither does being completely slender to the point of appearing underweight. It seems more like any small thoughts encourages rather than discourages.
Based on Mushu from Mulan
Nobody Wants Me Egg
Blue Savoith - Tarenena
Average. That's how best to describe how Savoith looks. Average size, average wingspan... even a nice average blue hide, neither particularly dark nor light. It's as if somebody measured dozens of blue dragons, put those measurements into a pot, stirred well, and pulled out Savoith. About the only thing unusual about him is the general (and undefinable) air of scruffiness about him. However, as he ages, the hide around his eyes will gradually darken, until it's nearly black at full growth.
Based on Oliver Egg/Dodger Draggie
Lost Childhood Egg
Perhaps they will form into the painted wings of a wooden dragon they played with as a child, or into the features of a beloved childhood pet. Maybe they will see the strong backs of their Hold's runners, or the face of someone they knew long ago.
Because everything they see in this Egg *does* seem long ago - of a time so far distant it seems hard to remember. A time when they were tiny enough to be spoilt and cuddled safely up to a parent, a time when toys were the most important things in their minds and worries were things that only adults had to deal with. Hold-born Candidates espiecially may find themselves struggling with feelings of homesickness staring at this Egg. Perhaps it would be better to give up those ideas of Impression, and go home to your family instead.
Blue Metriath - L'thor
Metriath wants... everything. That warm woollen blanket over there. The shiny thing that girl's wearing. The bowl his rider feeds him out of. He wants it all, just because.
Based on Once Upon A December Egg Dimitri dragon
Home, Sweet Home Egg
Try as anyone might, there's nothing which appears able to disturb this eggs constant sturdy solitude. Every textured line will continue upon its merry way with only a single blurred patch marring the polished surface and, even then, that spot has an apparent part within the great scheme of things. Doesn't it look like a door which a dragon may someday use to erupt free into the world? But what dragon truly uses doors?
Brown Lepiteth - T'yvl
This little brown is adorable, simply put he’s small, cute and round. Being a bit pudgy doesn't detract from him though it just gives him an overall cuteness that not many dragons carry long past hatchling stage. For all his cuteness, Lepiteth is at a disadvantage when it comes to stamina and he will never fly a full fall like other browns.
Based on Piglet from Winnie the Pooh
Bronze Whaverth - K'tet
So many people are going to guess this dragon color correctly. They’ll say bronze from the get go and why not? There is a certain regality to this egg that seems to defy the dragon inside to be anything but the best he can be. Best of course in the eyes of a gold when Whaverth chases after her through the sky revealing his incredible self.
Based on Prince Charming
Colours of Jazz Egg
As you approach this egg you feel its delight; it loves to have attention and to meet new people. It is for sharing, for socialising, for talking about and for tempting. It issues welcoming warmth to the hands that touch it, the soft and silky surface feeling as delicate and gentle as a baby’s skin. Could this egg really contain a dragon that might be yours?
Blue Scath - K'ten
Scath is an ocean blue coloured dragon, starting with a deep green blue on his rump and blending gently to a paler murky blue round his snout. There is a slight iridescence to his hide of a purple hue that is only visible in the moonlight or starlight, a time when his best and most redeeming qualities seem to be apparent. His eyes are small and are normally a dark colour, usually watching you closely. There is however nearly always a look of mirth in them that portrays his naturally jovial character.
Based on Scat Cat
Cuddle Me Egg
This egg has the unmistakable appearance of a cuddly warm, blue blankie all nice and wrinkled up and ready to snuggle. Just looking at this egg makes you want to curl up beside it and somehow snuggle it warm all around you. Is there a dragon that likes to cuddle inside? Well that remains to be seen, it's enough to know right now that the dragon is incased in a very warm blue blankie.
Green Restath - Adreya
Wake up little hatchling, time to come out of your shell. Wake up sweetling, time to greet your lifemate. So sleepy, so tired this little green hatchling simply can’t seem to wake up all the way.

The Boogery Egg
Green Achoith - Jaboa
Achoith seems to have bonded with her shell in some almost unnatural manner. From the moment she hatches this little green is sneezing. First some egg mucus pours out of her twin nostrils perhaps she has too much shoved up there, more than the others at least. Then as she sniffs the air she starts a violent fit of sneezing as if the very air alone is making her do so. What does all this sneezing mean? Nothing really. Nothing other than the fact Achoith has a very sensitive nose.
Based on Sneezy/ Hanky and Booger Egg
Dusky Dirty Dark Egg
In the cold light of day this egg could only appear as if it had been kept in the rubbish. The surface may be smooth, but to the eye there appears to be a layer of dust. Dark, dolefull and drearie this egg will not appeal to many candidates, reminding them of the parts of any dwelling that they would sooner forget. Perhaps this egg was too rough and ready to be born, eager to be out before it had been coloured with the eye catching patterns the others had. Will you risk getting any closer to this abhorrent spectacle?
Brown Thomath - D'lien
A dull brown hide covers this dragon from the end of his snout to the tip of his tail. Polishing, cleaning, scrubbing and preening: none of these will buff this dragon up as smart as you might like. It is as if he was destined to look dirty. His hide is just one of many things that give him a personality to look at even before he talks to you. His eyes are just a little too close together for an average dragon, and he does not stand straight enough for some people’s liking. His right eye ridge is slightly higher than the left if you look close enough and his nose is a touch crooked. Before these things are pointed out, the casual observer might miss them, thinking that he merely looks approachable, down to earth and something like the stuffed dragon that they had as a child.

Arolos Queen Egg
Diamond sparkles glittering gold,
This egg holds beauty greatly untold.
Shimmering starshine a queen to proclaim,
So much attention instant fame.
Coveted creature causing such a great stir,
Girls all hoping, hearts a whirl.
Curled up inside this glimmering shell,
Waits one of Pern’s precious golden winged belles.
Dream now of the hatching soon to arrive,
When one lucky girl will never feel more alive.
The Sparkling Gold Dust Egg, the last of Ormanth’s clutch- is brilliant in its unparalleled beauty. The sheer size of the egg in its magnificent golden splendor, declares that the young queen’s first flight has indeed produced Arolos Weyr’s next gold dragon.
Just who reached up to the night sky and plucked a handful of sparkling stars to dust delicately over the entire shell? Who gave this egg an almost otherworldly appearance? Perhaps some mystical, mythical fairy took a star from the sky and wrapped this queen egg with its beauty. Whoever it was, however this egg obtained its luminescent glory doesn’t seem to matter. All that matters now is who will Impress the little golden dragon within and only time will unveil that much sought after secret.
Gold Wendeth - Freynia
Such a delicate beauty emerges from the Sparkling Gold Dust Egg. It’s hard to tell if this beautiful amber gold dragon is dry or not, her hide has such a silky wet sheen. The dark amber hues flow endlessly down the length of this hatchling all the way from her headknobs to her tail tip. Only when you catch a glimpse of her underside do you see a subtle variance beginning. The darker amber turns lighter until the very bottom of her belly is a light white gold. To one inspecting this beauty they’d see the lighter gold extends to her full underside- even to the underside of her forearms, forelegs, and tail. Her gold mixture is perfect and just right for Wendeth.
