Hatching June 17th, 2006
Pern date 8.14.04.29
I Will Warm You
Not that this Egg seems to mind that. It's an illusion of course that makes the surface look so fuzzily warm. It's only markings on the surface - touch it and it will be as hard and smooth as any other egg.
Still, those Candidates who come over to see it may find themselves shivering and stamping their feet to try to keep warm in this part of the Hatching Grounds. Under such chilly circumstances, it may be tempting to touch the Egg to see if it's as warm as it looks.
Blue Hevelth -
Small and plump, Hevelth is a sweet little blue. He's pale in colour - almost a baby blue - except for a dark indigo gash over his head. It stands out, as vivid as a wound, odd until you've got used to it.

The egg isn’t for harpers alone though. For harpers it brings to mind the many harps in halls and holds, in the lives of those who love its music. For children the attraction lies within the glowing colored sparkles. A lot of parents will have to keep a close eye on their young ones for as soon as they catch sight of this egg they’ll long to run over and see if they can catch the colored glows that leave trails like glowing bugs. Only these special glow bugs come in many colors and there the attraction flourishes. Who wouldn’t want to reach out and cup a purple fire light in their hands? Or pink, orange, green, even blue?
This egg truly has a fantasy filled existence spurring hopes and dreams of most all who come to the sands to see the eggs.
Green Gocamath -
From this beautiful, colorful fantasy shell a little green hatchling will make her very impressive beginning. Sweet, little Gocamath makes a spectacular impression with her amazing coloring. She’s the deepest emerald green with lighter shades of lime green that seem to blend and flow down her body as if she had hair that somehow melded into her hide. It truly is amazing the effect the long, thin wavy lines have starting on her forehead just a little bit up from her brilliant luminescent faceted eyes, and working their way down around her headknobs and over her long neck down to flow out about her shoulders. If someone had taken a paintbrush and decided to paint hair upon a dragon they might have tried to get it to look exactly like Gocamath’s hide, and they’d be successful.
Based on 02. Angus Mac Og-Youth and Love
The brave candidate that steps forward to touch the shell of this egg will likely feel confused. The sands beneath this egg are hot, and logically the dark shell means that this egg should be hotter than most, but something in the sensation will make you think it is cold and lifeless. It could be the little dragon inside is trying to make you go away, or perhaps nothing really lives inside. Whatever the case it is hard to touch the shell for more than a brief instant and few will not shiver from the reaction.
Blue Anuth -
The cold eeriness of the egg that hatched this elegant blue dragon is carried through to the hatchling. A dragon of few words, Anuth is more likely to watch you with a steely stare than engage you in conversation. His features are drawn out, and his head knobs are longer than normal, making his face look long and gaunt. His head knobs are not the only parts that seem to be longer than normal. His legs also seem too long for his body and his wings longer and slightly narrower than most dragons. All of this gives the general impression that the blue is undernourished, however this is simply normal for Anuth and will not change as he grows older. His longer legs will prove an interesting challenge as a hatchling as they will take more controlling than he expects, causing him to be a little clumsy until he learns how to manage them.

Sparkling Midnight Circle
Green Rhiannath -
Rhiannath is a deep mysterious green and right out of the egg she will be a finely proportioned green, moving with grace and poise. Her wings will have an unusual colouration - when she unfurls them, there will be lighter almost jewel like patterns as if someone had spilt a treasure chest of emeralds over them and they had become embedded in the membrane.
Based on 04. Arianhod-Silver Lady
Eye of Fire
The shell of this egg burns with fire, reds and oranges dancing across the shell. The colours reflect the feel of the egg too. A gentle touch will reveal far more to the senses than a firm hold: this egg likes to be tickled and caressed. To the touch the warmth of the egg seems to be filled with happiness and a gentle radiance. It is almost addictive resting hands on the shell, and any candidate who touches it will feel as though they do not want to stop. Can you resist the pull of the Eye of Fire Egg?
Green Basteth -
A green that glows with pride in her colour, Basteth is elegantly built with a lithe frame and bold green hues. Her hide is a deep iridescent green, with yellowing green markings that accentuate her shape down the length of her body and reflect brightly in sunlight. Her face is slightly angular and she can twitch her head knobs slightly as an extension of her facial expressions, which makes it easier than most dragons to discern her mood once you understand how to read her. Her supple form indicates an agility that is better than an average green and once grown she will have the strength to match, making her able to turn on a pin point or push hard to catch a Thread. In her fight against Thread she will be devoted more than her rider might expect and offer an aggressive stance to the fight, but her stamina will let her down and force her to retire earlier than she would prefer.

The Mead's Glow Egg
This rich, dark golden egg is the perfect honey mead depicted in the wonderfully preserved drawings of old. Even in the thick rippling and the shaded colorings there is brought to life this legendary of beverages. The hatchling within, will it too have a hide of the purest honey mead? No, of course not, no gold lies within this egg not with the minuteness of foamy white marring the surface of this spectacular brewer’s dream. The hatchling within will forever be extolled for gracing the fabled Mead’s Glow Egg even if it does dash the dreams of girls whose first glimpse sets their hearts pounding until they realize that it is not even big enough to be a gold egg.
Brown Bragith -
The name isn’t always a reflection into the soul of the one bearing that name, and that statement is very true with Bragith. He isn’t a braggart at all. He doesn’t have to be. Every single word that comes out of this hatchling’s mind is colored with eloquence. Just how does he do it? How can he make his words so colorful? He’s so young. Well, no one knows how. Bragith has a special gift and he knows how to use it to perfection. Nary a harsh word will ever escape this brown’s thoughts. He’ll even color his anger, should it arise from his even tempered disposition, with beautiful words.
Based on 06. Bragi-Poetry
Fields Of Gold
It even seems to smell right. The scent of freshly cut hay wafts around it. If they only closed their eyes, a Hold-born might even be able to almost picture themselves there; the sun beating down as every man, woman and child in the Hold worked to bring the crop in, working until every muscle they had ached. Then afterwards, when the sun dipped towards the horizon, perhaps slipping off with a sweet girl or boy where no-one could see, deep into the fields of gold.
It's enough to make a Candidate feel homesick. Even riders may find themselves thinking wistfully of the Holds where they were born. Perhaps it's time for a visit back.
Blue Quayinth -
Smallest of the males, blues are sometimes said to be more insecure and jealous than other dragons, and in no dragon is this truer than in Quayinth. From Hatching, the little blue will be horribly jealous and possessive – not just of his rider, but of anyone in authority too.
Based on 07. Cain
Sweeping Winds Egg
Blue Buteoth -
There are intelligent dragons, and then there are logical dragons. And then there are saavy dragons, the ones who play the fence between each of their clutch mates.
Based on 08. Cetan-Hawk
Glued Together Egg
How much of the original shell exists beneath the string? Those lines keep such tight control that each purple chunk appears straining for freedom. It shall surprise many Candidates to discover there are no real lumps upon the shell. Perhaps, instead of string, some other substance holds this fragile artwork in one piece? Be cautious when touching because it does have a gold momma around for protection and this egg does encourage a protective instinct.
Green Cihuath -
Cihuath may require less heavy scrubbing because of her hide being so smooth, but the time gained goes into battling her habitual overeating. Most other medium-sized greens don't show the limb strength or pudginess around middle that Cihuath has. The only narrow feature appears to be the limber, snake-like tail. From wingtip-to-wingtip her wings are undersized with any deficiency made up for in width. A pale green coloration covers her stomach, lightening the foreboding background of solid dark pine.

From the Deep Egg
Will some monster wherry burst from the sands should a Candidate approach too close? The innocent might envision a giant dog that will just slobber affectionately over unwary victims. No matter the assumption, this egg remains silent, not giving more hints about what the Candidates should expect.
Green Talicuth -
Talicuth will be large for a green, both in body size and wing length, although she will look about average as a hatching. She will have a lime coloured hide but around the middle her waist she will have greenish-obsidian highlights that will encircle her body like a skirt. Long lines will extend towards the back of her belly so that this "skirt" appears to have fringes.

The Flower Wreathed Egg
Every farmcrafter that has dappled beyond crops and into the beauty of flower gardens will have an interest in this egg. Just what sort of flower has this dragon wrought through some amazing happenstance? Those from the tannercraft will envy the varying shades of purples and reds, if only this were a flower they could use in their dyes, what spectacular cloth they could create and turn into fabulous gowns and tunics.
Of course not to be forgotten, those flowers lay upon a very rich orange, red-gold whose sheen is magnificent and cries out that there should be a gold within. Of course with those amazing flowers gracing its magnificent shell there is no gold, besides she’d be awful tiny and no gold ever hatched that tiny.
This egg will be remembered forever, artists will sketch it and people will study the beauty of the Flower Wreathed Egg for a long, long time.
Green Freyath -
Spring has eternally come to Arolos Weyr in the form of a large green hatchling. Freyath is in a single word, Spring. She exudes the essence of the new buds on a tree, the tiny shoots pushing their way up out of the ground and bursting forth to bloom brilliantly. This hatchling is the bright green of new grass after a spring rain, and she’s far from plain. There’s not a solid patch of green upon her because her hide is covered in tiny feather-like designs, and I do mean covered. Had someone taken hundreds of tiny green songbirds and plucked their wings from their bodies and attached them to Freyath with some mystical means of merging them with her hide, the affect would have been similar.

Rainbow Wishes Egg
Who doesn’t enjoy the sight of a rainbow? Their magical mystery has those who decline the knowledge of the more learned, enchanted with thoughts of wishes and wonder. What happy mother hasn’t pointed to the sky and exclaimed, ‘A rainbow, a wish!’ gathering her child close and closing her eyes encouraging the young one to do the same. Wishes made, eyes flying open and if the rainbow is still brilliant in the sky, the wish willed to come true. Of course should it be gone, the consolation that the wish was snapped up and on its way towards fulfillment is almost always spoken and often believed.
A childish game? Perhaps it is, but you’ll find adults carrying on the rainbow wishing and when they see this incredible egg the wishes will be endless for who ever heard of a rainbow egg? The dragon within promises to fulfill the wish of one lucky Candidate, will it be one who closes their eyes and wishes upon the Rainbow Wishes Egg?
Green Wobnairth -
Precious describes Wobnairth in a single word. She is completely and utterly precious. As she comes into the world she’ll be surrounded by a thin inner membrane which will catch the bright sunlight and amazingly, but very briefly, it will surround her whole body in a shimmering rainbow of undulating colors. As soon as the membrane breaks and falls apart around her the tiny green will be bathed in the fluids of that membrane making her dark green hide even darker. Once dry she’ll be a dark forest green, her entire body uniform in that beautiful color all except for one area. Wobnairth has a crown, well, it sure looks like this precious hatchling has a crown around her head. In the pattern of twisted metal, the coloring of light lime green, she has a permanent crown surrounding the top of her head resting on her eyeridges in a slightly tilted manner. It’s gorgeous and absolutely adorable and even when Wobnairth reaches adulthood she’ll be labeled precious in part because that little crown is so cute.

Forger's Folly Egg
Any Candidates belonging to the smith craft might even feel the need to bring their master, or journeyman to the sands to talk about this egg, but will they be able to resist sneaking on to the sands to touch it? A metalsmith wanting a feel for the metal to test its composition perhaps might just risk it. Of course testing it would involve a bit of tapping, possibly trying to shave a bit of it off and that would be a big mistake. The queen will not allow that sort of thing and lest the metalsmiths forget themselves she’ll be there to remind them just what this forger’s folly is, a dragon egg and nothing more.

Whirl of Clouds and Sea Egg
The outside of the egg is a mix of blues, greens and white. What could it be? You know it is supposed to represent something important and significant, but what?
Green Hatheth -
A turquoise coloured green, Hatheth is a dragon that is both beautiful and familiar. Her hide has tinges of blue and it seems to be a blend of colours that make up the over all effect of green. She has a joyfulness that is infectious and her rider will find it hard to be unhappy with Hatheth. She seems to love everything, her clutch mates, her rider, her riders friends, flying, eating, sleeping - anything will make her happy.

Eye of the Storm Egg
Bronze Haokath -
Haokath is a very powerful looking bronze, even just out of the shell. He is one of the deep coloured bronzes and when he catches the light it will shimmer on his hide as he moves. The effect is that he gleams dark and light coppery hightlights crawl over his muscles as he moves. It is an almost mesmerizing effect.
Based on 15. Heyoka-Thunderbird
Hidden Treasures Egg
Which could be good. Small fragments of copper, amber or the dusty copper around the cracks have little value by themselves. The whole picture makes a far better gem despite itself seeming too focused upon each little detail. In particular the faint light shining from the amber never once touches copper. This calls for attention toward where attention should be due, namely inward. Could the dragon be as uptight as his or her egg?
Green Mahtith -
Mahtith has a dark emerald hide with a blanket of smallish spots on her hindquarters. The spots blur slightly at the edges so that they almost appear to be star shaped. She is definitely on the small size for a green but still within normal parameters. Her small size suits her just fine as it allows her to hide a lot easier than a big dragon would be able to, or at least that's what she thinks, and hiding in dark places is one of her favorite past times. When she is a hatchling she'll be more able to hide behind bigger clutchmates or in an empty storage room should she be lucky enough to find one. Once she's grown, however, she'll have to make do with just covering her eyes so she can't see and pretending that no one else can see her in return.

Eternal Radiance Egg
The almost perfect symmetry does have flaws: albeit merely the thickness of line in stray locations. Perhaps the disorientation caused by people sorting out which outer ring goes where after crossing. It stirs the imagination. However, since there is white and the yellow doesn't reach golden, it's clear no gold dragon could be within this egg. What other color might come from such an obvious shell then?
Will the dragon be anything like the star resting atop the egg? So many questions but no answers from the entity sitting here acting so eternal.
Brown Juroth -
The brilliance shining from his egg didn't carry over. Instead Juroth has an almost uniform amber-brown hide except for the lighter tan color around his muzzle and at the tips of his tail and wings. He is a large brown from the moment he hatches and by the time he reaches his full size he will rival some of the smaller bronzes. He, unfortunately, will never have much maneuverability, but he will have better than average stamina for a brown.
Based on 17. Jurojin-Longevity
Feather's Descent Egg
There is one anomaly in this otherwise perfect depiction of a treetop view. A giant green feather appears to be floating, hovering just above the treetops. Because dragons don’t have feathers, and wherries sport fuzzy down, it’s hard to imagine the bird that this might lay claim to the green feather.
The imagination however is aroused as you gaze upon this egg, watching the feather’s apparent descent. This egg will attract a lot of attention though not all of it good. Again, those duty songs will have some wishing the queen would cover it completely with sand and hide it from view. No one wants anything to harm this precious green egg.
Brown Myrddith -
Myrddith bursts forth from his shell in a powerful entrance into the world. He’s an amazing, wild whirlwind from the moment he leaves his shell. Of course he might have been rocking that shell for a few day in preparation but who knows. He’s out, he’s free, and he’s ready to explore. He’ll want food, sleep and then exploration in that order. He’ll nose into barrack corners and find himself searching out dustballs under the WeyrlingMaster’s desk if he’s not careful. He just loves the sense of exploration that he finds by searching about things and his curiosity will be endless. He’ll be wildly affectionate with his rider and other dragons, but no one else can get anywhere near him. This will make it difficult for the WLM and AWLM, and even the dragonhealers. He does not want you near him at all whatsoever and don’t you dare touch him. Only his lifemate has that right and of course his fellow clutchmates and any other dragons or even other animals. He won’t mind a flit flying about and he’ll even get cozy with a wher if given half a chance. Just don’t let anything human near him that doesn’t smell, look and feel like his lifemate.

I Must Go Down to the Sea Again Egg
Green Nammyth -
Nammyth is a green that tends a little towards the bluer shades, a spruce green with ripples of a lighter green colour all over her hide and a tendency to gleam as if she has always been freshly washed. This is because the odds are that she will be! Not because she hates to be dirty but because from the moment they start getting washed she will adore water. She will get in the water at any excuse what so ever. She'll love the swimming lessons, and she'll demand washing frequently until her life mate realizes it's just the playing in water she likes to do.
Based on 19. Nammu-Primeval
On the other hand, if you opened the Egg before it was ready to be Hatched, perhaps the golden mother watching the Candidates so closely would object a little.
Perhaps it is better not to try and solve the mystery after all. Some things are not meant to be opened - at least, not yet.
Green Pyxith -
Pyxith is a talented and pretty little green. From a distance she seems smoothly shaded a leaf-green colour. However, closer up, it becomes obvious that her patterning is both beautiful and incredibly complex, a million different shades in the tiniest amounts coming together in little dots over her hide, and combining.

Sweet Red Flesh
How easy would it be to dip your fingers into the scarlet flesh, covering them with the sticky moisture the Egg seems to offer, and then greedily sucking it off again? Just one drink, the Egg seems to promise, just one drink and you would never thirst for anything again.
Perhaps if you did, you would find the trick to Impressing. Maybe that one drink would bind you forever to the dragon inside the egg, making you forever theirs.
Or maybe the heat of the Sands is just something that makes you think and imagine slightly odd things. Reach to touch the Egg, and you will find it as hard and dry as all the rest, the promise of sustenance proving to be a lie.
Green Proserth -
For half the Turn, it would seem that there is no better place for Proserth than Arolos. For the summer months, she will love the sun, bask in it with her friends, bathe in the lake, and altogether be a happy and content little dragon.

Future Glimpses Egg
Past each coil the shell gleams and mirrors everything that happens past, which includes the Hatching Sand. There are shapes of brown and places of blue. Something must be communicating from inside but who provides egg translation survices? Do the whispery shapes mean anything, tell anything about the future dragon held within? That shall certainly give all Candidates something to ponder.
Blue Zalcoath -
Zalcoath is not the most attractive looking blue. He is an inherently light colored blue with even lighter colored feathery pattern on his hide that almost makes him appear too pale. On top of that, he is a large blue, but a bit thin and drawn in appearance that comes from an inability to easily keep fat on him. He will eat more often than most dragons but still have a hard time keeping fat and muscle on his body. Despite this he will be quick in the air.

Marked By Blood
Walk around the Egg though, and you see the full story. The back of the Egg is marked vividly with red-brown, as though blood has run down, spoiling the pattern. Such a lot of red, as though someone were stabbed, or slashed, or scored by Thread, and then they were bleeding and, oh Faranth, the blood wouldn't stop, and then it was everywhere and, oh Faranth, the *bleeding*...
Of course it is only another part of the pattern - just random blobs of red mixing with the equally random green and yellow blobs. You could even walk back around the the fron and pretend you hadn't seen it at all.
Still, somehow, the Egg doesn't seem quite so cheerful anymore.
Brown Albath -
Albath is large for a brown - and yet he *is* still a brown. Not a bronze, and thus his place in life seems to be one step behind the bronzes, leading as a Wingleader or WingSecond perhaps, but always with someone still standing above him. Always with a bronze telling him *how* to lead - never truly in charge.

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
In any case, it's lying on its side now, nestled comfortably into a hollow in the sand. Lying that way, the grey and silver markings seem softer. Tiny cracks and lines make them seem almost like a fur covering the egg. Every now and then it twitches as the dragon trapped inside moves a little more or scrapes the side of the egg.
Look at it with your eyes half-closed, and its easy to see its shape as a particularly large dog rather than an egg - a dog that has wandered onto the Hatching Grounds and curled up on the warm sands for a nap.
Then again, considering what happened to the last dog to wander onto the Hatching Sands, its probably a good job it's an Egg instead!
Bronze Longath -
Large even among bronzes, Longath will be a natural leader. From Hatching, he will lead others in feats of high courage and daring - sometimes too much so! It is likely that the WeyrlingMasters would prefer *not* to have most of Longath's class led out of the Barracks and into the danger of Southern forest, or into the lake before they've learnt to swim, or on a million other dangerous little adventures. Reluctant participants will be challenged and even bullied along on occasion - you don't want to come? You think it's dangerous? What are you, some kind of coward?

Burning with Accomplishment
Some things have a purpose from the moment of their creation. There's no wondering, now waiting, no lack of versatility, no. This egg *is* a stoked fire, with all of its use and misuse ready to be manipulated by its controller. One could assume that the Dragon within in as full of purpose as the egg itself. The spark on its shell drives back the darkness, yellow sliding to orange melting into rich red, a fire strong enough to stave off wild felines and anyone else who would challenge the fire's controller.
It tempts candidates to touch it, despite the hot exterior, despite the burnt color and charred edges on the shell, but is that a spot of charred blood form previous unlucky souls? Or an animal in the scene meeting its own fiery doom? Despite that possibility, it tempts, lures in candidates, looking for someone wise enough, perhaps, good enough, to take on its challenge.
Bronze Vengeth -
Once upon a time, when the Dragons were made as they were, strong and powerful and protective, there were seeds sewn in their lineage that would some day give rise to miracles among the eggs, Dragons full of might and fire and a willingness to use it to reshape the--

Burning With Potential
No-one has shaped this Egg yet. It burns still, waiting to be given its purpose. Only time will tell what that will be. Perhaps a bronze, haughty and arrogant, made for leading, will Hatch out. On the other hand, it may be a shy little blue, small and nimble, able to perform agile turns in the air.
The Sands heat the Egg from underneath, and the sun beats down from above, and patiently it waits to be shaped. It might be better not to touch it until it's Hatched however. You might just burn your fingers.
Bronze Elliketh -
To a dragon, it is impossible to tell a lie. There is no choice involved, especially where a gold is involved. There is no choice where *any* gold restrictions are concerned for that matter. They will never lie, never disobey a gold, never intentionally hurt a human unless their rider is threatened - some things are so inbuilt that it is unthinkable for them to go against them.

Islands and Oceans Egg
Still those islands splotch against the waterscape as everything looks very soft. Every edge, every spot sings about a comfort beyond possibility. It should be hardening not sitting there being peaceful and silently vengeful. Nobody can mistake the danger just waiting for a reason to lash against whoever upsets the tranquility.
Be cautious around this egg or that person could be you.
Brown Aipocath -
All dragons need hunt to catch their food when they are older, but some have more of an aptitude for hunting than others, Aipocath is one of those dragons. He loves to hunt and will perfect doing so over many turns. Unfortunately this often means spending much longer terrifying the herds just so he can pick the herdbeast that interests him the most. Despite being an average sized brown he can make surprisingly tight turns and once he does make his choice he will easily be able to drop and grab his prize with a minimal of effort.

Nature's Reminder Egg
How could this be? How could this egg exist to remind so many of that day? Does it do so to remind us that we have no control over nature, that we have no control over tornados, over thread, and no control over the eggs clutched by Pern’s queens? We have no way of knowing why exactly this morbid creation lays upon Arolos Hatching sands, we can only speculate.
What sort of dragon lies growing within this devastatingly powerful egg? A timid green whose emotional fury will rare up on occasion? A staunch blue whose stoic nature will be able to withstand any storm, even one so insidious that it follows the aberration of the thread tornado? Maybe a brown, a hearty brown who will be a fierce thread fighter, who will hatch with his innate hatred of thread just a touch hotter than others? Or it could be a bronze. A mighty bronze defender of Pern who will break out of his tainted shell and prove that there is nothing that can defeat the dragons of Arolos Weyr?
It’s anyone’s guess, and guess they will, even as most tend to look away from this egg, especially those who endured the thread tornado’s wrath and will forever bare the scars, emotional and physical, from that dreadful day.
Bronze Truenoth -
Are hatchlings suppose to be noisy inside their shells? Really, are they? Maybe Truenoth doesn’t realize that he’s not suppose to be making noises and especially not loud noises. Before he hatches this big guy will be fussing up a storm inside that shell. Little bugles? How is that possible? Pounding? Why doesn’t it just break the shell? Perhaps this hatchling’s shell is a little thicker than it should be, that would account for all the fuss, right?

Cosmic Event Egg
Observers might lose themselves amongst the great vastness despite this egg lacking great size, but so much seemingly awaits discovery. Who shall find what? Which star belongs to which Candidate? Those questions pose difficulty in tracking but nothing suggests the egg pays attention to such trivialities. It sucks everything inside without recognition unless some major event happens along the surface. But there is something nearby.
Either an explosion gathers or already happened since a gaseous blue strays throughout the fiery red tinge. Could that localized glimmer be fading? If not, the Candidate may brace themselves for an eruption come Hatching time. The dragon, if anything like this egg, would create one violent event.
Blue Tiaath -
Save for the narrow ice blue streak going down his back Tiaath has a uniformly dark blue hide. He is decently sized among his clutchmate and will be a fairly large blue when he is full grown, both in length and girth. His bulky figure rivals some of the smallest, thinnest browns. Most of his bulk will be muscle, but if he isn’t made to exercise it could easily convert to fat.

Aurora Storm Egg
All in all, a Candidate could burn their feet just sitting watching the ever changing patterns on this strangely compelling Egg.

Tiennath is a small but perfectly formed green, with very fine delicate features. In fact, most people on looking at her would assume she is too delicate to be doing something as strenuous as flying Fall, but they couldn't be more wrong.

Veiled Points egg
They see everything and yet everyone takes them for granted, think that the soft white glow or twinkle like a light bounding off of a blade is nothing something to ignore. But this egg, full of the night sky, stuff with it until it seems like the egg can't hold any more, seems like it can see, as if every faintly misty star point was an eye that could see all, sense all, know all. But that's a little silly, isn't it? Afterall, the misty viel has to keep the stars from seeing everything properly, even if they stars on the egg could see and sense. Maybe, maybe only the brilliant things can be seen, and the best deeds of the best candidate would seep into the egg and make it's no doubt equally brilliant dragon choose the best Candidate for itself.
Maybe the egg sees everything, too.
Green Crepereth -
Greens are happy, Greens are flighty, greens are bubbly and bouncy and everything else that doesn't describe Crepereth. Crepereth is a mellowly pleased Green, a relaxed Green who says little, interacts little, and watches everything. Crepereth will go through her life with little personality variation -- maybe a little slide towards ecstatic, maybe a little waffling towards depression, but briefly, before settling back into the mid-point, that feeling at the end of a long day when the air cools down comfortably and you get to stop working for the day. That muted, comfortable sense of relief and contemplation will be the ever watchful, ever listening Crepereth.
