Sweeping across the form of this brazen hatchling's burly form nocturnal fire wars with scintillating cassia to stir night's dark with flame. His broad forehead is crowned with three brilliant topaz points that flash with the movements of his head. Diamonds glitter across strong shoulders and wide back embroiled in molten copper, while powerful haunches eclipsed in shadow taper to iron-dark limbs tipped by obsidian claws. Dawn breaks across wing's sheer membranes, reflecting the roseate citrine of a new day.
Egg Name and Description
Take Me Away Egg
Whorls of cream vie with tufts of brassy, copper-burnished hues creating the semblance of a fleece that clothes this egg in a thick woolen pelt. If one looks closely, it almost appears that there are legs, tipped with cloven hooves, folded to allow a creature the luxury of reclining at ease in the heat of mid-day. Towards one apex, a sheepish face between two menacingly curved horns, peers with eyes that promise either deliverance or destruction.
If an egg could trot, the Take Me Away Egg would be doing it. There's a bit of a wriggle-bounce to it as it rocks, moving the egg in a steady bumping motion across the sands.
Starting at one apex and working towards the far end, bits of shell fall from the Take Me Away Egg as fleece to the shearing floor until the hatchling inside is revealed, appearing almost nude without its shell.
For a moment Time's perfection Bronze Hatchling lies curled as if still within its shell. After a long moment it uncoils smoothly and stretches with a yawn before uttering a tiny roar and stalking feline-like towards his prey - the white-robed figures standing across the sands.
Lion's Triumphant Affirmation
Arieth's mindvoice ranges from deep purring notes when he's at peace, to a resounding bass roar when he's in a state of heightened alert, from gutteral grunts of affection to intense snarls of ire.
Take Me Away Egg draws it's inspiration from The Bronze Ram of Syracuse, a Hellenistic artifact on display at the Regional Archeological Museum in Palermo, Italy.
Arieth takes his name from the Greek name for the ram's constellation Aries. And since astronomy has long been an interest of mine, his description is based on Taleh (same constellation) and the three principle stars in the ram's head El Natik, Al Sheratan, and Mesarim, from the book "The Witness of the Stars" written by E. W. Bullinger, which may be read online here: http://philologos.org/__eb-tws/default.htm and gives a different reason for the constellations of the Zodiac.
