Thick black hair in wavy, loose curls find their way just past Risali's shoulderblades, bangs cut in a fashion to appear feathered and sideswept, tucked behind her ear to the right. Grey eyes are framed by a thick fray of black lashes, centered by a petite, slightly wide nose and mild, arched eyebrows. Her creamy complexion, and heart-shaped face is complemented by full lips that are, more often than not, pulled in a scowl.

Risali dresses rather modestly in a long-sleeved tunic that cross-laces at her breast and has peekaboo cutouts at the shoulders. The thin material gathers just under her breast and then loosens, leaving the material loose down her stomach. Legs are tucked away into a pair of lace-up boots that come up mid-shin, complementing the dark, almost form fitting pants that sprout from the tops and disappear beneath her shirt.


History

OH BUT THAT RISA'S TALE WAS A HAPPY TALE TO TELL.

Risa was the first child born to riders Ila'den and Iris, coming at a time when the bronzerider found himself lacking any desire to be a father and her goldrider mother defied his every wish to bring Risali life. Ila'den came around to the idea halfway through Iris' pregnancy, and was soon wrapped around the teeny-tiny little fingers of his daughter when she finally saw fit to grace Pern with her prescence.

When her father's endless doting and love inspired jealousy in her aunt, Kiltara, Risali's perfect little world started to fall apart. Kiltara disappeared, leaving Ila'den riddled with a guilt that did not translate well to his home life. Her father still loved her fiercely (maybe moreso after Kit's inexplicable goodbye), but his attentions were turned to finding his sister and Risa (and Iris) suffered for it. Days became weeks, weeks became months, months became turns, and Iris and Ila'den were graced with their second child (technically V'ric's): Veliren.

Eventually Kiltara returned, turning everybody inside out once more (read: Ila'den), but /things/ did begin to mend - meaning Risali got to start the process of connecting with her aunt while torturing her sib and watching some of the darkness leave Ila'den. /Some/, but not enough. Things were starting to seem okay despite the evident ache of her father, and soon child number three was born to him and Iris: Kielric. He came with an attempt to salvage a weyrmating that was in shambles, but too late.

As you can imagine, being the oldest child with two brothers to bully, Risali developed /quite/ the interesting mix of personality between both her mother and her father, learning from Ila'den how to fight (and how to fight /dirty/) while learning how to bake bubblies from her mother. The time finally came when Iris and Ila'den split, Iris taking the children with her, and the rough edges of Risa's attitude hardened into barbed wire. She picked a craft out of spite, /only/ to gain her own freedom, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Dragon

Let's Rock This House Gold Leirith

Broad shoulders and hips shine with yellow mustard, their imposing lines tapering down to a narrow keel and short but strong legs tucked beneath her. She's a bright gold, her colors brash and undiluted along the trapezoidal prism of her body. Her head is a wedge shape, with a short muzzle and large eyes, and one of her knobs sticks almost directly upward while the other remains tucked close to her head. Across her chest sweeps a band of cream, crisp-edged as it goes from the base of one wing to the other in a straight (well, curved around her torso) line. Those wings are powerfully built, with squared spars near the shoulders that extend - and extend - into long sweeps that stretch until they're almost skeletal at the ends, narrow pinions with the sails between fading from a smoky amber glass through to an all but invisible shine of golden sunlight along their trailing edges. She may have short legs, but those wings ensure that no stairs will ever defeat her… even if those slightly gnarled black talons can't quite manage to get a grip. Matching those wings in extent is the length of her tail. It's broader on top than the bottom, tapering along its length until it divides into a forked tip whose prongs are sparked with fluorescent white.


Firelizards

Deceptively Normal Green Whisper
There is nothing remarkable about this little green. If she was placed in a crowd of her peers she would be the last one picked by anyone who was looking for a potential lifemate. Her lines are as graceful and supple as any other firelizards, her wings are just as long and so is her tail but there just isn't anything distinctive to the eye. She is green, that is about the only thing one can say for her. She is mostly uniform in color too, a darker forest shade across her back and the tops of both wings that becomes lighter on her underbelly. More or less standard for any kind of lizard anywhere really. Claws are so light they are almost white and the spines along her back and the knobs of her head are just a shade brighter than the rest of her to give her some definition. In behavior she seems normal too, doing all of the things that firelizards do. Treats and flying and nestling in hair and all of that. She is the stereotypical green … except for one bit of odd behavior. Once she becomes of age to mate she has a disturbing habit of chasing after other greens when they fly to mate. It is unknown why she does this, out of jealousy or if she just really likes the shape of green tails and hindquarters. She has a downright embarassing habit of dreamily eyeing other glowing greens, lying there with her head on her forelimbs and just staring away. Because she wants to be them. Right?

I Can't Hear You Over The Sound Of… Blue Archer
He is tiny. And blue. AND FIERCELY CUTE.

Void Call Brown Hunter
On the smaller end of the spectrum for his colour, this angular brown is likely to grow into an agile creature, able to effortlessly command the skies. What he lacks in size, he makes up for with presence, nearly always perched somewhere nearby and crouched ready to pounce, his shadowy wings arched high and curled about himself. It's difficult to tell whether he is truly brown or actually black, only in very bright light discernibly not some mutation. It's the rusty, crimson highlights that sweep over his ribcage and up through his wingsails that give him away, muddling as they do at their edges in earthy tones before fading into the near midnight of the rest of him. From nose to tail, he's slender, his sharp ridges edged with an autumnal amber to match his sharp, deadly claws.

Phoebis and Papilio Gold Potato
Dazzling sun-bright gold forms the base colouring of this striking queen, for a Queen she is, in both color and demeanour. Delicate though she may be of features, she exhibits a quiet and hidden strength, regal in pose and not lacking in confidence. Diluted bands of antique and burnished gold form a long stripe from the back of her head and down the elegant curve of her neck, back and all the way to the tip of her slender tail. More banding appears on her shoulders and haunches, where gold turns a fiery shade along hips and echoed again in the curve of sharp talons. Her wings, large and broad, taper to near angular points. Extended, the translucent sails show further stripes of darker gold, near invisible, along wingspans and paper-thin edges. They are wings that promise to make her a quick and strong flier, capable of gliding for lengths of time that are close to uncanny for a gold her size.
