Water Over Stones Egg
Perhaps the Water Over Stones Egg is trying to tell everyone something. It seems like there's almost always one dragon in every clutch that loves water. Perhaps such a dragon dwells inside? Or maybe one that loves fish? Or perhaps the dragon's thoughts are shallow and quick?
Only time will tell, but there's lot to think about in the mean time.
Green Phyleth - Merren
"My name is Phyleth, I'm a green dragon." Words which this olive green dragonet's rider will become very familiar with, as Phyleth will always use them to introduce herself. And they really do suit her well as this dragon is a scrupulously honest and open beast- she will always call things exactly as she sees them and is not prone to flights of fancy.
Based on 1 Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle
Fancy a Game Egg
And yet there's something odd about this red jewel like egg, and upon closer inspection most people will agree that it displays a marking that makes it look like a gamepiece of some sort is jammed right through the middle.
Does a playfully rambunctious dragonet lie coiled within the shell, ready to burst out on hatching day, ready for fun and games? Perhaps it will be the type to enjoy something more thought provoking or maybe it will turn its nose up at the very idea. Like most games, there is a wide variety of possible outcomes so curious eyes will just have to wait to see how the game plays out come hatching day!
Bronze Ludeoth - Calynx
Prim and proper in both form and function is a good description for Ludeoth as this bronze dragon will hatch from his egg with a certain amount of decorum from the very start. His body is pretty much textbook when it comes to the bronze dragon. He will be perfectly average in size, musculature and features, his tail will be exactly the right length, his headknobs perfect and his wings will be neither too wide nor slender.
Based on 10 Wadsworth (Clue)
Canine of Silk Egg
It's unlikely that many people will argue that there indeed seems to be the visage of a canine on the front of the Canine of Silk egg, even if it is a canine that's never existed on Pern. Facing counterclockwise, there is a distinctly regal feeling in the way this canine is standing. Even the way the long, narrow face is turned to look straight at you suggests that the canine knows she is something special and deserving of awe. This despite her long, large tongue poking out mid-pant.
Minus some black on the face and around the neck, the canine's long, flowing, and silky looking coat is almost a pale golden tan. Something that only adds to the sense that this canine would be royalty if canine royalty existed. Though of course the gold color would never qualify as a gold in comparison to the gold on a gold egg.
The position of the coat suggests that this very confident canine is standing in the wind and posing before the green patch behind her that appears to be a mountain with the tops of trees just visible.
Over all this egg exudes presence, though if a person doesn't like canines it may not be a very interesting or positive presence.
Green Matibrath - Emajay
Matibrath is a larger green, though not as large as a green can get. Although she'll never be considered chubby looking, she has slightly bigger bones. If she was smaller she'd be considered stocky. On her larger frame it looks okay, if not particular feminine. Her lighter green body doesn't blend in quite as well as she'd like, and the color qualifies more as cute than beautiful.
Based on 11 Whiskey Mattimoe
Serene Green Egg
Bronze Aniketh - Jerhon
A pale rusty bronze, Aniketh looks serious right out of the Egg. He's stocky and well built, and a good proportion for an average sized bronze and one would be forgiven for thinking he was average in many respects.
Based on 12 Nick Angel
Surreal Sky Egg
Blue Jarth - Sarika
Jarth is a relatively pale blue as blue dragonets go, and on the larger size. Large enough that he often mixes with the larger dragons and doesn't seem completely out of place. In terms of personality he is not so much aloof as laid back, and relatively unflappable, even if he has a predisposition for getting into unusual situation.
Based on 13 Jack Carter Eureka
Long Live Pink Egg!
Green Lepaneth - Saylire
Lepaneth is a sleek, slim green. She has long limbs and a long tail that doesn’t entirely match the diminutive body. Her height saves her from being called small, and she’ll never be a petite green. Her muzzle is long a pronounced, giving her an eccentric look. Her head knobs are also unusual, being a bit larger than average and very pronounced. Her hide is a rather beautiful emerald green, and despite the oddities in the rest of her appearance, it is almost majestic looking.
Based on 14 Pink Panther
Oh wait, it's just an usual looking egg. Phew!
The Obsidian Wonders eggs is definitely unique. Made up of various colors in dark shades, there are hints of yellow, blue, the rare almost light colored lavender, but most of all green and black. The black serves to give the impression of pits and ridges in the egg's shell, and the other colors almost look like shiny bits of rock. Minecraft Candidates might find themselves drawn to this dark, but beautiful egg as something to refine further. And perhaps the occasional other Candidate might speculate if there's a beautiful jewel lurking inside.
Only time will tell what dragon steps from this egg.
Brown Gilgroth - Vytende
Gilgroth will be a darker tan colored brown with dark brown shadings up his cheeks and down along his chin and muzzle. Even from the moment he's hatched he'll have a bigger build, being slightly larger than an average brown and he'll have a thicker build. He won't be overweight, just naturally bulkier. As a result he'll possess his fair share of stamina, but be rather awkward when it comes to quick turns or walking on land.
Based on 2 Grissom (CSI)
Why is the dragon inside being held behind a cage? Is it so eager to Hatch that it needs to be kept inside by other means? What Candidate will be worthy enough to help this dragon break free? Only time will tell.
Blue Hwintth - Vairen
Hwintth is a charming dragonet, from his first moment out of the shell, taking a look up at the sky and enjoying a nice bright day in a good, solid Weyr.
Based on 3 Lord Peter Wimsey
Oh What a Brilliant Brain Egg
Beastcrafters, healers and anyone else who's ever had the opportunity to peek inside a skull might be inclined to disagree. This egg, they might argue, bears a striking resemblance to a brain. Sure, its sparkly and clean and shiny silver but hey! Its a brain!
People on both sides of the fence might wonder why someone would want to make a silver brain. Others, probably the cleverest of the lot, might wonder what such an egg says about the dragonet within. Does it represent a brilliant beast or did all of its brains go into making its shell?
Blue Perculoth - Thajya
Perculoth is hatched small and he'll never be a large, or even medium sized blue. Despite his size he will draw attention due to the way that he carries himself, he is very stiff and proper and will tend to sit at attention rather than lounge about like so many of his peers. The one exception to this is the way he likes to cock his head towards objects of interest, human, dragon or other- and due to his large rather sharply pointed snout it makes for an impressive non verbal statement.
Based on 5 Poirot
Double Patterned Egg
Green Sildarth - Riiya
Sildarth will be on the smaller side for a green without being tiny. She'll be a bit tomboyish looking though rather than overtly feminine. She'll be a lighter green without drifting into the pale spectrum, with hints of dark green on the top of her head, in streaks down her wings, and at the very tip of her tail.
Based on 6 Sara Sidle (CSI)
A Storm for the Books Egg
Brown Ricaseth - Faiden
Ricaseth will know from the minute he emerges from his egg that he is likely the wittiest, handsomest brown that Arolos has ever seen. What others think is another story. He is relatively average in size for a brown, just a little bit longer and lankier at birth. His hide is rich dark leather color with lighter brown strip running down his chest.
Based on 7 Castle
While its not the most flamboyant egg, the most colourful or even particularly compelling, this timid little orb does have a certain degree of simple, friendly charm. It can easily be described as cute and very, very non-threatening. Those who might feel unsure of themselves could possibly feel a certain amount of camaraderie with this egg and might just be tempted to hunker down with it and hide.
Until Foreth spots them of course!
Green Shoobeth - Alsa
When the spotty Puppyspeckle egg cracks its shell, an equally spotty little dragonet makes her debut! With her green apple hide and the dark green spots that freckle her entire skinny little body, Shoobeth falls firmly into the category of cute when it comes to little greens.
Based on 7 Scooby Doo character
Brilliant Darkness Egg
Bronze Sherloth - Urnell
Sherloth is a long lanky bronze, with a gleaming pale bronze hide who makes an impact the moment he steps foot from his shell. There are two things immediately noticeable about Sherloth. One, he is brilliant and two he is arrogant. That he is brilliant, and has an exceptional memory for a dragon is undeniable, but he really does believe that other dragons are beneath him. It's not that he is colour-ist about it, it is that he doesn't have patience for people or dragons being stupid. He will amuse himself by making snarky comments to other dragons and to his lifemate about their riders about how they miss the obvious. He'll also do that to his lifemate as well, but in a less abrasive fashion. For all he says he doesn't need all these stupid people and dragons around, Sherloth needs people as much, or possibly even more than others.
Based on 8 Sherlock Holmes?
The Boney Egg
The obvious question is, of course, if the dragonet inside shares it’s shell’s dark nature. Perhaps those are just herdbeast bones and inside lurks a bronze ready for the hunt? Or does this shell really hide a little dragon so dark and twisty it will find thrill in the depressing and dead things it’s shell reminds us of? No one knows and only time will tell, but for now this little mystery will remain the topic of conversation between many onlookers.
Brown Benoroth - Bersin
Benoroth will be a thinner, longer brown although he will not meet the upper bounds of a brown dragon and rival a bronze in size. He'll be a medium brown, but with hints of tan here and there.
Based on 9 Temperance Brennan (Bones)
Silk Dagger Egg
The hilt looks to be made of the finest of wood, with gold painted wooden cords wrapping around it starting at the top. The well made cross guard is of rich gold with an intricate pattern etched in the middle. And the blade would make the finest smithcrafter envious. In fact from the moment was laid Kassia has been looking for the right smithcrafter to make the real version of this dagger. Of course no dagger could truly match the treasure of the dragon within.
brown Silk Dagger Egg -Destroyed in Attack -
Sadly this egg was destroyed in the attack on the Weyr. : (

Frayed Rope Egg
Still, however bright and colourful this egg is, when you look at it you might also experience a nervous twinge in the pit of your stomach. The yellow end of the rope looks like it’s unravelling, bit by bit, and you can never be quite sure if it was that frayed when you last looked at it. Let’s hope it doesn’t unravel before this little dragon is ready to hatch!
blue Smashed Egg 1 -
This poor egg was smashed during the panic of the fire that threatened the Hatching caverns : (
Based on Broken -Frayed Rope Egg
Stained Journal Egg
Still, this egg draws plenty of speculation, if only because it already seems ready to tell a story. If you squint close enough, a slight change in hue creates the impression of an open notebook, complete with written words on its pages.
But what does it say? And what are those darker spots here and there? Are they tears? Dirt marks? Or even blood stains? Do the pages hold the words and tears shed over a lost love? Or are there more sinister hints within these pages?
Of course no dragon is ever hatched evil, but the egg could be quite worrying depending on how you choose to view it.
Green Keeneth - Parrova
Bold and bright, Keeneth is an attractive little dragonet and she will grow up to be a beautiful dragon with a bright peridot hide. She has exceptionally large expressive eyes that twinkle with a great deal of curiosity and she will be curious about oh so many things. This little green will want to get to the bottom of every mysterious thing, no matter how trivial and she will go to great lengths to figure things out even if it means ignoring mundane matters- such as classes or drills- in order to pursue her personal goals.
Based on Nancy Drew 4
Molten Fire Egg
All in all the Molten Fire Egg fits well with Foreth's powerful and fiery temperament. And she seems to agree as this egg will spend more time front and center than a good many of her eggs, but not more than the gold egg of course.
Green Molten Fire Egg -
Unfortunately the Molten Fire Egg was another victim of the attack on the Hatching Sands : (

Dark Confusion Egg
Is the alarming look of the Dark Confusion Egg a hint at a dark dragon within? Or might a gleeful, cheery dragon break free from this oppressive egg and fight off the bad luck of having been laid during a dragon plague?
Green Dark Confusion Egg -
Unfortunately this egg was smashed during the Attack on the Weyr.

Imprint in the Mud Egg
The whole mess even seems to move, with a ripple like pattern and darker lines covering the egg. And deep in the middle of it all is an imprint, like someone took their finger or some other object and pressed down hard to leave their mark behind. It's all an illusion of course. Anyone attempting to push their own hands into the mud (assuming anyone wants to get that close) will find the shell unyielding and a Momma Gold unforgiving.
Blue Unhatched- Imprint in the Mud Egg -
Unfortunately this egg was shaken too hard during the chaos of the Hatching Fire and did not Hatch.

Ista Isles Egg
For anyone familiar with the shape of Ista from the air and the close by island neighbors, the blue egg with white and greyish-green spots looks like what you would see if you were approaching Ista from the north east. The longest part stretches to the bottom right of the egg. The shape is roughly the same. A tiny part even pokes out on the top right and points towards a smaller island and at the very top towards the left is a hint of an even smaller island.
All and all it's an uncanny likeness and who knows what that says about the dragon inside.
Green Ista Isles Egg -
Unfortunately the Ista Isles Egg was burned too much and shaken too much during the Attack on the Weyr and did not Hatch.
Based on Unhatched- Ista Isles Egg
Luxurious Fur Egg
Blue Valinth - Alteca
One of the biggest of his blue brothers, Valinth is a stocky blue to be sure. He isn’t particularly long, something of a sore spot with him, but even when he first appears on the sands he’ll look slightly intimidating for a blue. He’ll make up for his short length with muscle. His hide is a pale blue with little markings except a darker, navy blue patch on his head that runs down low over his eyes.
