Yes she is very inspired by toothless, and I did want a toothless-esque sort of appearance, however I've taken great care to make sure she's not just another nightfury.Edit: 1/22/15
Changed the tail fin to better differentiate her from a nightfury
Total Stat Points: 30Gold Coins:
a gold and sapphire necklace that Syme had made for her.Body Notes:
Her ears are very expressive, very much like Stitch's ears, however they are stiff more like a horse's. On her forelegs her 'claws' are flexible, and she has opposable digits to help her with gripping, for a total of five digits on her forepaws. On her hind paws she has four large tough, almost hoof like claws. At the end of her tail is a fan-like structure, which runs from top to bottom, not from side to side, that helps her to steer in flight. It is flexible, and when fully spread out should be roughly 5 times the width of the tail tip (i.e. two widths tall from the top of the tail tip and two widths tall from the bottom of the tail tip). The tip of her tail can also be an indicator of her mood, being much more relaxed when she's calm, but fanning out more if she becomes upset, angry, or distressed.Personality:
Caring, Gentle, Intelligent, Disorganized, Insecure, Sensitive, Vulnerable, Casual, Empathetic.
[Caring]: Zaira is of a very caring nature. She'd do anything for those in her kingdom, including putting them ahead of herself. This was what made her want to be a healer for the Eremus Kingdom.
[Gentle]: She's very gentle, and was never interested in fighting. In fact she very much hates fighting and was very resistant to learning how to fight. She would much rather solve conflict through avoidance, or negotiation.
[Intelligent]: Having little interest in fighting left her with free time to explore more intellectual pursuits. She began studying the world around her at a young age, and was more interested in her surroundings and how things worked, rather than with other hatchlings or apprentices closer to her own age. Of course it didn't help that her peers constantly teased her for her blunt, wedge-shaped head.
[Disorganized]: To others Zaira seems to be very disorganized. When other dragons come to her den for treatment her collection of herbs and medicines appears to be scattered about, which is very disconcerting to dragons who value organization. However, the truth of the matter is that she knows where everything is at all times. Her disorganization is more of an ordered chaos than anything. She's had other dragons come in and organize the place for her, only for her to storm out fuming because she couldn't find anything she needed. It took her hours to put things back the way that they had been, and her fellow dragons have since given up on changing this side of her.
[Insecure]: Growing up she was teased. All the other dragons her age thought she was mishapen because of her blunt, bulky limbs and her wedge shaped head. This left her feeling very insecure about herself. She believes herself to be unattractive, even though her mate had tried to convince her otherwise. When he was still alive she was afraid that he would find another mate far better looking than she was, even though she knew he was loyal to a fault.
[Sensitive]: Zaira is a very sensitive dragon. She feels everything much more deeply than most other dragons do. This makes it easy to hurt her, but it also helps her to understand others better too.
[Vulnerable]: The death of her mate has left her in a very vulnerable state, and the childhood teasing doesn't help either. He was a great source of strength and encouragement to her, and with him gone she is broken. She is frequently depressed, and tries to keep herself busy, but sometimes it isn't enough to keep her spirits up.
[Casual]: Zaira hates formalities. She much prefers to treat others as though they were of her own family. This level of familiarity can be unnerving to dragons who tend to be more formal, or who don't know her very well.
[Empathetic]: Being a sensitive dragon has given her the ability to put herself into another dragon's position. She is able to see things from their perspective, instead of being blinded by her own thoughts or opinions. This is a great asset in her line of work as a healer, as she can use this ability to help in treating those difficult, non-physical hurts.History:[As a Hatchling 0-12]:
When Zaira first hatched from her shell her parents were thrilled. However, upon closer inspection the were immediately concerned. She had a very short, blunt head. They called the healer in, and he was convinced that she wouldn't survive to adulthood because of the risk of respritory problems. To everyone's amazment, and her parents' relief, she grew with no health problems at all. Though this did lead to some very cruel teasing from others her age. They'd tell her that she looked like she had flown into a wall, or they'd ask if her parents dropped her. Because of the teasing she grew distant and preferred instead to spend her time by herself. She would play little games on her own, or observe insects or small animals in their natural environment, after which she would come home with a flurry of questions that nobody could answer. After some time another young dragon,by the name of Syme, who also preferred observation to social interaction spotted her and the two would talk for hours about the things that they saw, making theories about how things worked, or pondering about how things would be if they changed something small. Needless to say they grew to be close friends.[As an Apprentice 12-18]:
She was very dedicated to her learning, and readily soaked up the knowledge that her mentor had to give. She spent much of her time memorizing the various herbs, recipies for various medicines, and learning where to find the herbs needed. On her free time she would talk with Syme about all that she was learning. She also enjoyed hearing from Syme all that he was learning about being a crafter's apprentice. He would also come and show her some of the things that he was learning to make. As they grew and tended to their training they continued to become even closer.[As a Healer 18-Current]:
Shortly after completing her training Zaira and Syme began talking about becoming mates. They both wanted to be with one another, but Syme wanted to wait until he'd finished his training as a Crafter. After a couple more years Syme had finally perfected his skills and had become a Crafter. The two finally announced that they were now mates to the rest of the Kingdom. Things were going great and Zaira couldn't be happier. Several years passed fairly uneventfully, but the happiness wouldn't last. One day Syme had gone to the coliseum, like he'd done a great many times before, but this time there was a terrible accident and Syme was gravely injured. Zaira did all that she could to save him, but all her skills weren't enough. Syme died, leaving behind Zaira and their only egg.Relationships: = Neutral = Love= Crush = Friend = Close Friend = Family/Mate = Respect = Dislike/Hate= Guarded/Uncertain
