Amaury, human Wizard
right-aligned image

Name: Amaury
Race: Human (variant)
Class: Wizard
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Background: Wastrel nerd (Sage, with "discredited scholar" flavor)
Personality Trait: Awkward. Amaury is a know-it-all who doesn't know when to stop. He rarely picks up on social cues, and has problems grasping the concept of "honor". He is often sullen and stubborn when things don't go his way. He's been known to blow up when unexpected events throw plans off course.
Ideals: Independence. You're not the boss of me! Cuz I probably know better anyways
Bond: Accumulated Knowledge. Don't destroy books, libraries, scrolls, historical tapestries, or the like. Don't ever disrespect them or their contents. Defend them from others, if necessary. If you have time, read them. Now!
Flaws: Insecure. Amaury never really had friends, and generally doesn't know how to relate. He is worried that people are seeing the worst in him, and often tries hard to impress them (see: Awkward). He is typically bad at intuiting what things impress which people.

Backstory: Amaury was found rummaging through libraries of a large city. He had no guidance, no tutor. He was too poor for those things. He was simply a waif who found refuge there. As he wandered the aisles, he picked up books indiscriminately - often they were old, heretical, or long discredited. Lots of information was there, but usually it was obscure or of little real use. When the overseers found him, they knew that he was a perfect catch. He'd take quickly to what they taught, and so he had a decent chance of making it through the trials. But it would be no great sacrifice to humanity if this scrounging castoff was lost to the trials.

Clarion, Brass Dragon
right-aligned image

Given Name: Clarion
True Name: Wouldn't YOU like to know...
Dragon Type: Brass (Very Young)
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Personality Trait: Ebullient - Clarion is enthusiastic and gregarious. With her human, this manifests physically - she often bounds over and knocks him down, like a huge dog that doesn't know its own strength. With most others, she is talkative and cheerful.
Ideals: Aid - People need help, and I'm someone who can do it. Often, just talking is the best help one can provide. But sometimes you've got to jump into the fray. Never be afraid to provide assistance.
Bond: Transcendentalist - Everyone is good, deep down, and we're all part of a broader community of sentient beings. Everyone who can speak deserves to be heard, and everyone can provide you with new knowledge and insights. You just need to sit down and talk with them. You'll see.
Flaws: Rose-colored glasses - Clarion's transcendentalism can often fly in the face of reason. She ends up putting too much faith in others, with little basis for doing it, and often trusts people when she really shouldn't. Her belief that everyone is good can blind her to the harsh realities of the world.

left-aligned image
Description/Overview: Clarion is a female brass dragon. Her scales are mostly brown still. When she is excited or worried, she can radiate an intense heat, and a sharp smell of metal will come off her scales. When this happens, her scales give off a noticeable shimmer of bright metal, but this effect does not last long. She is very friendly and talkative, some might say overly so. She is protective of her human, and is convinced that he just needs to be "coaxed out of his shell." He tends to think otherwise.

Theran Windriver
[B]Race: Half Elf
(intended) Class: Cleric (Tempest)
Alignment: Neutral Good

Concept: Theran is a sweet young boy who has spent most of his life training under the Overseers to be a complement to his Intended in every way - small, quiet and agile to it's size and strength; healer and support to it's destructive potential. However, the isolation and loneliness of training as a Dragon-touched is particularly difficult for those who rely on faith for their magic. Having seen most of the other aspiring Dragon-touched clerics lose their ability to tap into the divine wellspring of power and be taken away has left him simultaneously jaded and despairing of his inability to help them, and determined to do everything in his power not to lose anyone else ever again.
left-aligned image

Personality: Theran's natural inclinations lean strongly towards peacemaking, which would be a perfect match for the pacifist tendencies of most metallic dragons, and a difficult conflict if he were paired with a more violent, Chromatic wyrmling. The years in the caves caused him to pull away from people, creating an indifferent mask to match the cold indifference of a storm. He has enormous difficulty trusting or opening up to people now, but beneath the protective layers he built around his psyche, he desperately wants to reach out and form connections with the world around him - friends, strangers, lost family, unknown kin and most of all, his Intended - so that he can build a place to really belong.

Background: HermitCustomised the personality bits, might swap the language for Alchemy tools* (Unwillingly Isolated) Theran spent the first six years of his life in a wealthy (human) merchant family, the Windrivers. His mother was the youngest sister of Master Windriver, and died giving birth to her illegitimate, half-breed son. Although the main branch of the family took him in and were never cruel to him, his place in the family was a result of duty, rather than any true love. Theran's earliest memories are of trying desperately to please his uncle, so that he could prove himself worthy to be truly accepted into the family, and when the Overseers came to their home, he thought it would be his chance. His family was pleased enough to see the back of him- especially considering the status that successfully bonding to a dragon would grant Theran, and by extension the entire Windriver family - and Theran went to meet his Intended buoyed by the first real affection he'd ever known from his family, and determined to succeed and make them proud.

The years in the darkness twisted and warped this desire, Theran spent months alternately resenting his family for never accepting him in the first place, and clinging even more desperately to the promise of their love if he succeeded - he imagined returning to them and deriding them for their failings his dragon tall and proud at his back, and dreamed of coming home to their open arms, and introducing each one in turn to his bright-scaled hatchling. Eventually he gave up on both - he will meet his family again or he won't, and he will decide what to do about them at that time, no sooner - and all that remained was the egg, freedom and the indifferent Tempest of his faith.



left-aligned image
Race: Bronze Dragon
Alignment: Lawful Good
Age: Wyrmling

Personality: When challenged, Aeragenys is proud and wildly fierce, an embodiment of the storm that drew her and Theran together. However, she prefers not to kill, instead using her repulsion gas to hold enemies back and give them a chance to surrender. Despite her tiny size, she has all the confidence and arrogance of an ancient Wyrm, and fully expects that any foe she faces will immeiately surrender, if given the chance, rather than face her wrath. However, once blood has been spilled, her capacity for mercy rapidly dwindles, as she seeks to end the slaughter by any means neccessary - often, means that she would afterwards regret - and it is sometimes only the calm faith that washes through her bond with Theran that reigns in her temper.

Outside of battle, she is deeply curious and social. She shares Theran's desire to form connections with other people, but none of the hesitancy born from a lifetime of isolation and rejection. Of course Theran - who will always be 'her boy', no matter how tall he may grow - holds the foremost place in her heart.

Character Sheet: Trill
right-aligned image

Name: Trillian Harper
Class: Bard
Race: Forest Gnome
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Level: 3


Description: Trill is a sweet little thing, always singing or humming or juggling apples. She's 3'2" tall, weighs 37 pounds, has blond hair and brown skin. Her eyes are a clear green with gold flecks in them, and she's in her early 20s. She barely remembers anything of her pre-egg past, but she can recall the sound of her mother singing, and the sight of the light filtering through aspen trees. Her overseer is a wood elf named Arrianna, who treated her well. Arrianna was a bard herself, and taught Trill the love and power of music.

Personality Traits: Cheerful, optimistic, outgoing, Trill has a song in her heart and a spring in her step. She sings often, and believes that anything can be made better with a good song. Trill tends to like things clean and tidy, and learned prestidigitation easily, and uses it often.

Ideals: Honesty: Art should reflect the soul; it should come from within and reveal who we really are. Our honestly, especially with our art, will inspire others to share.

Bonds: I would do anything for my dragon. I miss my mother's voice, which is all that I can remember of her, and I love small animals, especially the bats and mice in our cavern.

Flaws: I have a naive tendency to trust that people mean well.

Character Sheet: Valloran

Race: Green Dragon
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Banner: A world tree inside a circle, with a dragon worked into the bark of the trunk. Double border with a swirl of each of the Flight's other dragon colors. Picture to come.

Description: Valloran is a very young, green dragon. His scales are medium dark green, bordering on black toward the tips, and on his underbelly you can begin to see the clearer green that he will eventually become. His eyes are a deep, oak brown with amber streaks in them. His crest is slightly lighter than his body.

Personality Traits: Sometimes impatient and easily frustrated, Valloran can be very tender with Trill.

Ideals: The forest is to be protected and nurtured. The Flight is family.

Bonds: Trillian Harper is my Heart Song. My life, my other half, the one who keeps me grounded when my fiercer nature comes forth. Other than Trill, the forest is my life. I am, or will be, Lord of the Forest. Woe be to anyone who harms the old growth forests of our land.

Flaws: tbd

Equipment: (non-hoard items listed on profiler character sheet)





Concept: Patient as a glacier, destructive as a creeping vine. I see him as a manipulator, and a patient opportunist. He may not seem overtly self serving, and yet often ends up having what he wants; perhaps the most of something or the support of an ally. The unassuming guy who is probably more dangerous than the louder chest-pounding types. Raxavier holds grudges and has a long memory. He isn't cruel but he understands that sometimes cruelty is a useful tool. In general, he tries to get along with others because kindness is also a useful tool. He is at home in the quieter places of the cave, tending to the little inhabitants who share it with him like spiders and mice. He is also the anti-tinker gnome. Machines and mechanisms he interacts with inevitably jam, misfire, leak, eject a spring and generally fail.

Background: Custom
Personality Trait 1: If we wait, another option may reveal itself (Calculating)
Personality Trait 2: People believe what they want to believe (Manipulative)
Ideal: Nothing is more important than my dragon's life. Nothing. (Martyr)
Bond: I will bring terrible wrath down on the evildoers who took me from my homeland. (Vengeance)
Flaw: I am never satisfied with what I have, I always want more. (Ambitious)
Background feature: Rustic Hospitality (adapted from Folk Hero Background): Simple people are just that, and as such are easy to manipulate, for better or for worse. You know what to say and how to act in order to fit in with common people with ease. You can find a place to hide, rest, or recuperate among other commoners, unless you have shown yourself to be a danger to them. They will shield you from the law or anyone else searching for you, though they will not risk their lives for you.

Corisal Deltaheld

left-aligned image
Name: Corisal Deltaheld
right-aligned image

Race: Water Genasi
Intended Class: Storm Sorcerer
Alignment: Lawful Good
Suspected Dragon Egg Type: Bronze or maybe Red for the conflict between water and fire.
Standard creation rules: Rolled stats because the risk is fun - I got lucky!

Traits: I’m always in a happy and optimistic mood no matter the situation, it is near impossible to bring me down. (Spirit)
I’ll happily and without much prompting give you an explanation as to what I’m doing. I’m telling you it makes perfect sense! (Community)
Ideal: Work hard, work together, have fun and we shall be free. (Fairness)
Bond: The water favours the fluid; move and adapt, live. (Freedom)
Flaw: Living your whole life in a cave, controlled by overseers means I’m a quite gullible and willing to believe most statements and stories. (Innocence)



Custom Background: Outlander reskin and customiseThe Water Diviner
One question that the overseers have given up trying to figure out is how Corisal manages to always have large quantities of water. They have just put it down as another thing that this dragon-touched boy can do. In actual fact it is not an innate power that Corisal has but rather a self trained skill. His natural affinity to water does help greatly but he learnt first by accident that by using small y-shaped pieces of wood he could locate water. Over the years he has spent time carving various lengths and shapes of wood from anything the overseers bring from the outside world to try to find the optimal water finding tool. He test each of them out by walking around the cave system locating small underground streams, pools of drip water, or just a barrel of water, that was not the most exciting of finds for him. Once located it is an easy matter to mould it and move it back to his little cave where he has dug a small pond to deposit the water into. Then he can use it up in various escapades.
