Hatching 30 May 2015
Pern date 8.25.05.30
Blue Gordalth - Severan
Gordalth is a pudgy, stocky little dragon with a bright blue hide speckled with darker dots. His snout has a bit of a squished appearance, almost as if he ran into a wall, and it has several mole like lumps, which while unusual are actually completely benign. He is a messy eater and tends to be slovenly- he'll have no problems laying about with a filthy hide and will moan about having to bathe.
Based on Alf
Green Ponth - Dytha
No-one could ever accuse Ponth of being overly submissive. The little green might be small but what she lacks in size she makes up for in spirit. She was practically Hatched to boss larger and milder-natured males around, and she's happy to fufil that role.
Based on Amy Pond
Green Staciath - Aiyana
Even for a dragon, Staciath has a particularly poor memory. She'll remember associations of course, that a certain dragon is her friend or that she dislikes another, but events are harder. If it happened over a sevenday ago the chances are she doesn't really remember it and is relying on her rider to remember for her.
Based on Anastasia
Brown Farelth - Palysso
If Farelth had been the right size, he would have been a good sturdy brown. As it is, it's hard to tell, but all things in proportion. He's a broad-chested young dragon, strong for his size and difficult to set off-balance. That steadiness also seems to apply to his temper, at least at first, for Faarelth will seem to be a difficult dragon to set off-balance.
Based on Chief Farrell, St Marys
Blue Listoth - Geole
Some dragons try to hide a lazy nature. Listoth practically takes pride in it. His lifemate's attempts to keep a tidy cot may well be disturbed by Listoth's tendency to just drop things here, there and everywhere when he gets tired of them. While some blues jostle upwards, searching for life, Listoth takes joy in the idea he will never need to be promoted so he can just do what he wants.
Based on Dave Lister
Blue Avidith - Tashka
A combination of this Clutch's small size and Avidith's own baby-like features mean that he's likely to spend his life being mistaken for a Weyrling. In ten turns he'll still look like a dragon maybe just old enough to be learning to *between*.
Based on David, AI
Blue Doriath - Kisandyr
Doriath is a gorgeous looking blue, and he knows it. As vivid as a sparkling tanzanite gem, he flaunts his small but perfectly formed body at every available opportunity. He will flirt outrageously with anyone and everyone but if he does fall for a particularly green he will be surprisingly faithful. Personality wise, Doriath is a little vain, a lot smart, and full on snarky. He will delight in making witty snarky comments to his rider in order to make him laugh, and loves to be the centre of attention. He will demand pampering and will be concerned with his appearance, and demand his lifemate pay attention to looks as well.
Based on Dorian Pavus
Blue Doryth - Desille
Bright, deep blue, with a darker stripe down the middle of his back, Doryth is a handsome dragon. He's a little skinny, but that's something he will keep however much he eats.
Based on Dory, Finding Nemo
Blue Doktith - Monti
Perhaps it's the time travel that makes Doktith feel so much older than he is. He's a baby blue dragon, but sometimes the things coming out of his mouth sound as though they should be coming from someone far far older.
Based on Dr Who - NPC
Green Parasath - Yla
Parasath is tiny, but her mouth is wide and generous. If a dragon could grin Parasath would be constantly beaming at the world. Maybe she's too small to carry more than her rider in the air but she'll be a talented swimmer, and will end up being one of the best in the Weyr at swimming, yep yep yep!
Based on Ducky, Land Before Time
Blue Errolth - Markel
There are some dragons only a rider can call beautiful. Blue Errolth is ugly to the point of turning around and ending up cute again. His eyeridges are huge, his nose is too long, his nostrils are enormous - he looks as though someone randomly picked facial features from a chart without realising that they were all going on the same dragon. It's his large eyes that turn hideous into cute however, Errolth is very good at leveraging an appealing look that makes it very difficult to resist giving him anything he asks for.
Based on Errol, Guards Guards
Green Franjeath - Keldel
Franjeth may not have size, but she has energy. She'll remind some of the bossiest of green firelizards, determined to remind her rider that she is the one in charge in this partnership. She will however be quite suggestable, happy to follow a path as long as you will allow that it was probably her idea to start with.
Based on Franjean - Willow
Blue Gavroth - Kellin
Small and swift, this little blue will never be ashamed of his size or afraid to stand up to those who are bigger. He's one of the smaller dragons, even for this clutch, but he will also be amongst the most social, cheerfully offering assistance. He's not prone to mindless chatter though, and will quickly learn that the dragon who stays silent is the dragon who might come away with useful information.
Based on Gavroche
Brown Philocth - Ozryn
Philocth is an arrogant brown. He's a darn good threadfighter- even if he is smaller than the modern dragons- and he cheerfully lets his success go to his head. He is charismatic for the most part, especially towards higher ranking dragons, but can be a bit of an ass towards those he views beneath him. He is the type of dragon who is happy to coast along, being great at what he does, which is quite easy when things go the way they're supposed to be.
Based on Groundhog Day
Blue Henrith - Kiyuuchi
There's such a thing as being too good at *between*ing. For Henrith it will be instinctual, automatic, a switch of location triggered by whatever place just passed through his rider's brain and whoops, there we are, somewhere else.
Based on Henry, Time Travellors Wife
Green Moigrath - Naural
More than most of her clutch, Moigrath will find herself aware of how much smaller she is than regular sized dragons at Arolos. As a consequence she will be desperate to prove herself. Keeping up physically will be beyond her - she will manage to keep up with her class but nothing will give her the stamina to improve beyond that.
Based on Hermoine Granger
Bronze Jakith - Alebmor
Jakith is a smart bronze dragon with certain blind spots. He's sharp enough to take advantage of an opportunity, even to the point of occasionally being a little greedy but he will be consistently unable to grasp such things as creatures other than draconics having genders - unless they have a colour they will be referred to as 'he' or 'it'.
Based on Jack, Into The Woods
Blue Jamth - Megin
Jamth wants little more in life than to have friends and be happy. He'll be the first to try and be friends with anyone and anything, no matter how weird they look. They might be a watch-wher or have terrible scarring, but he's there, greeting them and trying to be friends.
Based on James and the Giant Peach, NPC
Brown Jedath - Seshko
Jedath is a ruggedly handsome looking dragon. His hide is a lovely shade of caramel brown, when it isn’t dirty. A bit of dust and dirt never worried him and he’s perfectly okay getting his paws dirty if necessary, as long as his rider is willing to clean him up after. He’s mostly perfectly proportioned, other than his tail which is a bit longer and a bit thinner than the rest of his body.
Based on Jedediah, Night at the Museum
Green Jimicrith - Hannah
The kind would refer to Jimicrith as being very concerned with doing the right thing. The unkind would refer to her as No Fun At All. Jimicrith is a rule-follower. Partly this is because following the rules is simply the Right Thing To Do. Partly it's because Jimicrith can actually see the reason for the rules. She can see ahead to the potentially terrible consequences of whatever stupid thing you want to do, and she'll try desperately to warn the potential perpatrator - be they human or dragon - what might happen.
Based on Jiminy Cricket
Blue Jonmath - Haygen
Jonmath is a dragon who keeps normal wrapped around him like a cloak. His colour is a uniform dull blue, and not particularly exciting any way you look at it. He's not an extraordinary flier, an extraordinary flamer or an extraordinary flame. He's average, a dragon who would happily slip into the background and let the world pass him by. He is not extraordinary.
Based on Johnny Maxwell
Blue Kreath - Pandoru
Some dragons are handsome, others are cute and some have misfortune of being quite ugly. Sadly, Kreath falls into the latter category. Even as a hatchling this blue looks old. His hide has a grayish tinge to it and looks as though it has wrinkles. His headknobs are overly large and droopy and he’s not likely to win many admirers or friends for his appearance alone.
Based on Kreacher, Harry Potter
Green Macsith - Rela
Macsith isn't a green who finds it easy to accept help. She'll flail around, surviving on very little more than pride rather than admitting that she's not coping. In any relationship she'll fight to be the strong one, even if it's through gritted teeth.
Based on Maxwell
Bronze Mazerth - Parion
Mazerth is a bronze driven by duty. His dark hide even looks serious, and even his lifemate will rarely be able to rouse him to play.
Based on Mazer Rackham
Blue Peaboth - Jinna
According to Peaboth, Peaboth is Pern's smartest dragon. He has a great deal of drive to succeed in pretty much everything that is knowledge based, but he will have little interest in mindless activities like exercise. if a topic comes up that strikes his fancy, he will push to become the topmost expert on it- which probably won't win him too many friends during his training.
Based on Mr Peabody
Green Janekath - Nirandra
Janekath is a streamlined green that would be better classified as matronly than pretty or cute. She's a medium green with a band of darker green around her chest and front legs that looks vaguely like she's wearing a shirt.
Based on Nirandra
Green Peginth - Kinnia
The world is big, and Peginth is small. Even as she grows bigger, the size of the world will continue to amaze and sometimes intimidate her. It's not just the size of an Arolos gold that is amazing but the height of the sky, the depth of the sea, the sheer amount of the Southern continent that no-one even knows about. It will bewilder her that even the big dragons don't think about this, and she will try to explain how tiny they are when you have perspective.
Based on Penguin - NPC
Bronze Repicheth - Jonouchi
If there was ever evidence that a small body does not mean a small personality, Repicheth is that dragon. Compact, gleaming dark bronze gilded with gleaming lighter highlights he is small but perfectly formed. Muscular and agile he would not change himself or be envious of larger dragons because he believes any disparities can be overcome by sheer force of will, bravery and determination. Those qualities he has in abundance and strangely, they do seem to carry him through situations that realistically he should fail at.
Based on Reepicheep
Green Rivrith - Elbess
There are sedate little greens and then.. then there's Rivrith. Rivrith doesn't know what the word sedate even *means*. She's liable to give the WLMs several heart attacks before she graduates. Rivrith isn't prepared to sit around and wait for life to happen to her - she's off in the search of adventure, and as far as she's concerned Fall can't come soon enough.
Based on RiverSong - NPC
Blue Roolth - Nemil
When he sees trouble, Roolth will always be sure to point it out. And then he'll keep walking, right on into it. It's far more interesting that way that running away. He's not so much easily led into trouble as he is prone to bounding along, right by trouble's side, eager to see what comes next.
Based on Rool - Willow
Brown Samvith - Jerich
Based on Sam Vimes - NPC
Green Saraconth - Raena (Rae)
Saraconth appears to be on the surface an ordinary green; is rather well muscled and in good shape for her size. She is a medium shade of green and is unremarkable when she wants to appear ordinary.
Based on Sarah Connor
Brown Sirith - Toluk
Unlucky for Sirith that he was born out of his own time. If he had been born in the Second Pass he would have been one of the largest of the browns. As it is he remains small compared to Arolos browns, and will struggle with the feeling that he should be far bigger for a lot of his life.
Based on Sirius - NPC
Green Thumlith - Reynia
Tiny, delicate and pretty, Thumlith will have her share of suitors when she is older. Unfortunately, while she is happy to be friends with almost anyone, Thumlith is shy when it comes to romance. If she's not actually ready to rise, any mention of romance or chasing is almost guaranteed to get her to beat a fast retreat. She doesn't want to talk about it, she doesn't want to think about it, and any potential suitor will have something terribly wrong with them - too big, too ugly, too boring - which she will confide shyly later to her lifemate, but be far too polite to say to their faces.
Based on Thumbelina
Green Kabelth - Sarati
Kabelth is a teeny tiny bright leaf green dragonet who shares an egg with her sister Unikith, and like her sister she will be almost impossibly tiny for a dragon- starting off no bigger than a wher pup and ending up no bigger than a pony. She is an energetic dragon, lithe and fast when she flies on her own, but she will struggle when she has to carry her rider for more than a short hop. She will insist that she can do more, that she can fly in a wing and fight with the other dragons, that she only needs to grow just a teensy bit more- but she never will.
Based on Tinkerbell
Brown Zatoth - Talcan
Even compared to the other browns in the clutch, Zatoth is small when he hatches. Some of the large blues will be bigger than him for the first several months of weyrlinghood. Eventually he’ll start growing by leaps and bounds and by the time he is fully grown, he’ll end up slightly above average in size compared to other browns from the Second Pass. He’ll be a slender dragon though, one built for speed and agility, rather than endurance. He’s a handsome dragon as well and will retain a youthful look throughout his life.
Based on Toot-toot, Dresden Files
Green Unikith - Roshan
All the dragons of this Clutch are small but Unikith is tiny even compared to them. She'll come out closer to the size of a wher pup than a regular dragonet. She's going to keep that compact size too, which means that Unikith is never going to be a dragon who is much use in Thread. At full sized she'll be able to carry her rider on short journeys - a brief hop and jump *between* works all right for her - but more than thirty minutes or so in the air with a rider on her back and she'll be struggling.
Based on Unikitty
Bronze Carloth - Digen
Carloth is a scientifically minded bronze, a dragon who would have done very well indeed had he remained in the past at Sef Weyr. Not that he won't be a success at Arolos mind you, a good smart bronze is always an asset- even if he does get a tad weird at times.
