Luck Over Muck Egg
Blue Aldoolith - Birant
Aldoolith is a shiny looking sky blue - when he's not covered in muck. A bit like the egg he Hatches from, Aldoolith seems to have a predisposition for getting mucky. Rolling in mud wallows, jumping into the lake when he's just been oiled, investigating piles of rubbish, you can guarantee he will manage to get himself dirty generally the second his poor rider has finished cleaning him up. That being said, he's a bit of a lovable rogue in temperament, unusually charming for a blue dragon and definitely with an eye for the greens! Small and stocky, he has surprising strength and endurance for a blue, but firmly believes in having a joke, a laugh and if he ever gets introduced to alcohol, he will spend a lot of time running off with wineskins as he will develop a taste for it. Life is never dull with Aldoolith around, and he has a sort of common sense approach to life that gets him a lot of friends, and charisma that lets him get away with things other dragons might not be let off the hook for doing.
Based on Alfie Doolittle - My Fair Lady
Icy Diamonds Egg
Green Anath - Eroza
Are you awake? Will you come and play? Anath has to be awake, her eyes refuse to sleep any more and so she'll make sure her lifemate is awake too. Any enticement she can think of will be offered to get her rider up and out of bed, because Anath just hates being on her own.
Based on Anna-Frozen
Red Paint Strokes Egg
Green Ellebeth - Fransa
Ellebeth is one of the more feminine looking greens out there. Average in length, but a bit daintier. She has unusually large eyes and a smaller nose that gives her a bit of an innocent look. Her hue is a slightly softer colored green.
Based on Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
Walk Through The Fire
It's still a brave Candidate that reaches out to touch it, and yet those who do will find the shell much less chilly than their eyes tell them it should be. Instead of heat, the shell is cool - cold even. Perhaps it's that mismatch of vision and reality that leaves Candidates shivering afterwards, or perhaps it's only a cool breeze. After all, whoever heard of a cold fire?
Green Veranoth - Nikua
The accident she had in Hatching left Veranoth with a sober outlook on life. For a moment, she is certain, she died.. and it wasn't all that bad. She will do her best to convince her lifemate not to be afraid of death - which might at times lead them to suicidal-seeming maneuvers.
Based on Buffy (Once more with feeling)
Metal Sheen Egg
Bronze Remmahth - Padrim
This bronze is rather large and buff-looking, even right out of the shell. While he'll never be the largest bronze around, not even a serious contender for the title, he'll always give the impression of great power, even without the bulky muscles usually associated with it. He's a fairly handsome fellow, with pleasant coppery hide. His forelimbs are much paler, starting a bit below the shoulders and continuing past his elbows. Well above the wrist, however, they darken considerably, giving him gloves.
Based on Captain Hammer (Dr. Horrible)
Gather Stripes Egg
Brown Caracath - Seltyn
Caracath is a mid sized brown with a hide that looks like something that could be found on a well worn- and thus comfortable- leather jacket. His wings are wider and shorter than usual but when put to the test he's a great natural flier which will certainly put his rider's mind at ease during his first flight.
Based on Caractacus Potts (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang)
Brass Device Egg
Gold or not, it still manages to be a fascinating egg. It could almost be a manmade device of some sort, perhaps a puzzle or a jewelry box, and more than one person might feel the urge to give the egg a good hard twist along one of the apparent seams, just to see what might happen. An unwise urge of course considering the egg's volatile dam, and the curious will just have to wait until hatching day to see what kind of dragonet emerges from this shell.
Green Eglanth - Karla
Eglanth is a small frumpy little green with a deep green hide and a stern eye. She's a proper little thing, quick to scold others for wrongdoing and perceived ill manners. This also extends to her rider, who will learn very quickly to mind their tongues and brush their hair, unless they want to deal with their mother.. umm dragon losing her patience and nagging them half to death.
Based on Eglantine Price (Bedknobs and Broomsticks)
Read Between The Lines
Brown Javerth - Ryerlan
You can call Javerths brown hide smart, you can call it uniform, or you can be less tactful and call it dull, dull, dull. It's not chocolate or autumn leaves, it has no pretty dappling or variation. It's just plain old dark brown, the same shade over every inch of his body. And that colour it will stay - Javerthis not the type to tolerate smudges of dirt on his hide. He will be clean and smart, no matter the workload on his lifemate. It is important.
Based on Javert - Les Mis
Dizzy Weave Egg
Blue Joaneth - Luczah
From the moment Joaneth cracks methodically from his shell, he will be a blue that forever commands a double take from most people that stop to look at him. At first glance, he is decidedly and obviously masculine with strong, broad shoulders and a confident, sturdy stance that he will adopt easily throughout his life. But look again, a little bit closer and under that masculinity are slightly feminine touches too. Like long, lithe legs that, whilst powerful, are still slim and shapely. Or the gentle way in which his snout curves into an elegant point underneath his intensely whirling eyes. Crowned with long, curling headknobs and a fabulously long tail, Joaneth seems to be a strange but potent combination of masculine and feminine all rolled into one self-assured bundle.
Based on Joanne - Rent
Glittering Stars Egg
Brown Julamarth - Lvadaran
Julamarth is a brown who on the surface of it has the personallity of a bronze. A little on the small side for brown, he is a dragon who can Get Things Done. He has vision and drive and a peculiar talent for drawing together wing formations and flying tactics into something that works incredibly well. He believes...often quite rightly, he knows best and can be very forceful in making that happen. But the difference of Julamarth to a bronze is that he personally does not want to be in the spotlight. What he is very good at is spotting talent in other dragons and people, and he appears to feel almost a compulsion to get them to push themselves forward, to develop that talent and nothing annoys him more than someone wasting their abilities.
Based on Julian Marsh- 42nd Street
Carved Wood Egg
Bronze Vukoth - Roribor
Vukoth is a bronze on the slightly larger size. He will be unusually muscular as an adult and there will be no doubt that he's a very masculine dragon even as a hatchling. Nor that he's a very confident, occasionally arrogant one. Around his head and neck and the tip of his tail he will be as dark as a bronze can be. The rest of his body will be somewhat lighter, but still not light by any stretch of the imagination.
Based on Kovu (Lion King: Simba's Pride)
I Can See A Rainbow
Blue Lanceth - Leolin
Hark, what is that? Is it a fair green in need of rescue? Quickly, rider, away!
Based on Lancelot - Spamalot
Frills And Flounces Egg
There's no insecurity around this egg either. While some of the others beg to be loved, this egg knows you will love it - there's no need to ask. This egg was simply born to be popular.
Green Elphith - Cuylar
Elphith is not a healthy colour. She's healthy enough, but her hide has an ugly shade of yellow to it. Long after she's hatched, people will be concerned that there might be something terribly wrong with her and her rider might find themselves spending their lives insisting they're not ill-treating her even when they're in a wing. Kind people will be concerned. Less kind people will make mean comments.
Based on Laura, Elpheba (Wicked)
Red Confusion Egg
Green Mageneth - Xyvia
Mageneth is a slinky looking vivid green, who has an air of the coquettish nature of a proddy green even at her most calm. For all of this Hatchlings protestations that she is just there to help and do menial tasks, she is more interested in using that front to get people and dragons together, or to play slightly warped jokes on them all. She will be curiously fond of her sibling clutchmates and they will bear the full brunt of her focus on getting them into somewhat naughty situations. If Mageneth thought she could get someone together by accidentally blocking them in a room together, she would arrange a rockfall in a heartbeat. On the other hand, Mageneth will be very affected by the opinions of her clutchmates, and will want to please them - it's just that she choses some unusual ways of doing that!
Based on Magenta - Rocky Horror Picture Show
A Green Egg Far Away
With a colour like that it seems almost inevitable that it should produce a green. Certain Candidates may find that homesickness draws them to it regardless of that however.
Green Ranierth - Rhoslyn
Ranierth can be forgiven for immaturity - after all, she just hatched. However, even as an old lady, she will retain a certain innocence to her - never quite realising when she's being flirted with, always able to forget what she was MEANT to be doing at the drop of a hat and running off to do something else instead.
Based on Maria - Sound of Music
The Gold Twined Egg
Despite its beauty, there is a certain feeling of oppression about this egg. It's wrapped up good and tight, and one can almost feel the little gold yearning for her freedom, her escape from the twisted golden cage that keeps her safe. And escape she will, come hatching day!
Gold Razelth - Delysia
Razelth is an exceptionally long lean gold who will roll out of her egg in a jumble of gangly limbs, twisty headknobs and extra long tail. She'll be clumsy at first, as most young things are but quickly enough she'll grow into her grace, and the features that made her an awkward hatchling will turn her into an elegant beauty of a queen. Her hide is a gleaming buttery yellow gold with streaks of deeper honey that twine their way down her long form.
Based on Rapunzel - Tangled
Square Upon Square
How much an egg reveals about the dragon within, is a matter that’s often up for debate, but the Weyrlingmasters will likely be hoping that the egg does reveal a rule-following dragon, like the shell suggests. Some of the more rowdy candidates might hope that the dragon is less of a stickler for rules than it’s shell is, but only time will tell!
Blue Anatoth - Rorien
The blue dragon that emerges from the Square Upon Square Egg seems to have a hide that matches his shell rather well. Anatoth is a larger dragon for his colour, though nowhere near the biggest, with a hide of the darkest shade of blue. His entire hide is the one colour, expect for a few places along his back and stomach, where there are squares of a much lighter shade of blue instead. The contrast between the light and dark blue of his hide is extremely noticeable and makes Anatoth stand out, even if he isn’t particularly handsome.
