Possessions usually found on persona:
✣  You can’t find her person.


Face:




History:  
Teylarrin was born to a couple in Northern Igen.  She was unplanned and was their last child.  There was a large gap between her birth and that her next eldest sibling.  That combined with the fact that her family lived in the middle of nowhere meant that she rarely had anyone to play with.  She tried to spend time with her siblings but she was too small to be considered eligible for any of their games.  As such she spent most of her days alone in a corner somewhere.

By the time that she was five Teylarrin had come to understand her place in the world.  There were to be no fun and no games for her.  She was to stay out from under foot.  She helped the adults where she could, more for trying to get attention than from any actual desire to lend aid.  It was attention that rarely came.  When it did, it came with a spike of joy.  It prompted her to be more forth coming with help:  laundry, bed-making, food placing, anything.  She had hoped to get more attention, more affection.  In reality the more assistance she gave the less special it became, which in turn meant less recognition of her efforts.  She still tries, always hoping for that shining moment of ‘thanks’ or the ever-desired ‘good job’.


Personality:
✣  Quiet and Observant:  She may not be noticed by others but that does not mean that she does not notice them.  Teylarrin watches other people very closely.  She could be considered nosey -- if she were a nuisance, which she never is. ✣ Eager to be involved:  Teylarrin wants to be included in group activities.  She is never chosen to be on a team.  She is usually left out of the kid’s games.  She longs for it to be otherwise.✣ Helpful:  Teylarrin particularly enjoys being helpful.  She rarely gets credit for the things that she does, but she likes to do it anyway.


Shortcomings:

✣  Utter Lack Of Presence:  Teylarrin is the very definition of ‘wallflower’.  She has so little presence that she can be directly involved with an event and go completely unnoticed.✣  Tiny Frame:  Teylarrin is physically weak.  She can’t lift much.  She is not particularly fast.  She is small.


Mannerisms or Habits:
✣  Skulking:  She does not intentionally skulk.  She is just always there:  sneaking around in the background, watching, listening, waiting.✣  Eager To Please:  She is quick to volunteer her services.  She is willing to take on the tasks that other people do not want.  She is quick to offer assistance when it is needed.


Skills/Likes:
✣[Skill 1]:  Stealthy:  Teylarrin is exceptionally adept at stealth.  She can walk right in front of someone and not be seen.  It not something that she tries to do.  It simply ‘is’.✣ [Skill 2]:  In the Know: Since she is always around, unseen, she knows everyone secrets.  She overhears things that are not meant for ears.  She sees things that she was not supposed to see.  She learns things that she was not meant to because others do not notice her and let things slip in her presence.  She is wise in that way, but frequently does not know what to make of the things that she learns.


Dislikes/Unskillful at:
✣[ Unskillful at 1]:  Being Overt:  Teylarrin has a hard time standing out. She tries but she often fails.  She performs good deeds for others but people rarely figure out that it was her.  She tries speaking up, but her voice is quiet and can easily go unheard.✣[Dislike 2]:  Her Lack of Presence:  Teylarrin desires to stand out from the crowd.  She tries to help the people around her.  She wants to be recognized for her good will, for who she is, and it rarely works out in her favor.  Her accomplishments are often credited to someone else that was nearby at the time.  She dislikes her inability to accomplish such a simple feat as being recognized.


Fighting Style/Weapon of Choice:
If she must fight, Teylarrin relies on sneak attacks.  She’ll get you when you least expect it.  Which is always.


Candidate Information:

Color Preference:  She will take anything.  Especially if it is large and easily noticed.

Haha. I like her, but you'll need to add to the history part Razz It can be short.. like.. three short paragraphs in length, just about her family in general as she was growing up.

Key points I'd like to see:

Why she feels she's so 'left out'/ 'unseen'. Was all the glory /spotlight given to her older sibs? Maybe she was the adopted child of her 'parents' other family, so they see her as a burden? etc.

You might also be able to add something about in what ways she tries to be 'overt'. Does she act out to get attention since she's ignored? does she try to do good things for ppl to get attention /priase, but it just blows over like she didn't even try anything? Does she wear ostentatious clothing to try to get ppl to see her? etc

Also, is she already searched? If she IS, then that needs to be mentioned briefly in her history, too. If NOT, then remember, if you place her in Igen, she won't be getting probably any play time until Igen Opens and they start doing Searches for the first clutch there. Unless you have her family move elsewhere in the mean time -like to Fort area, where she might be searhced for Galadrieth's upcoming clutch. Which would be awesome >D Galad needs more candidates and that will be coming up fairly quickly, so we could get her searched soon.


Since she's young though, history doesn't have to be super in depth or anything; just a general idea of her upbringing/ growing up background to give us a better idea of how her life/ plight started.



✣ [Skill 2]: In the Know: Since she always around, unseen, she knows everyone secrets. She knows when you are sleeping. She knows when you are awake. She knows if you brutally assault a Junior Lady for no reason whatsoever and that you are horrible person because of it. wrote:

This will need to be adjusted Razz Lady junior has nothing to do with the candidate Razz And I'd prefer seeing something along the lines of "because she's a slight wisp of a thing and sneaks around quiet and unnoticed a lot, she has this magical way of being able to overhear a lot of conversations others might prefer be kept in quiet." instead of "she just knows everything" Wink



Preferrably, I'd like to see maybe one or two points more on her personality detailed but if not, I guess I'm okay with what's there, considering her age and youngsters are a little more single minded and such. I don't think my brat pack member's personality section was really much longer sooo.. /shrug. Maybe kate has more input there.

Nah, she just lacks Presence.  She is just one of those people that fade in to the background for no particular reason.  She is just unnoticed.  The kind of person that you tell all about your camping trip from last weekend and she is all "But I was there."

I had just thought that since that Weyr was closed that other Weyrs would Search from that area.  Although, technically Igen in under the jurisdiction of Ista Weyr and not Igen Weyr.

In my head, I keep picturing her as younger, like eight.  Maybe I ought to adjust her down.

Just seeing if you were paying attention.  Razz


Changed it up a bit. History add. Personality/Habits/Likes/Dislikes section edited.

Ista Weyr is only covering the southern half of Igen Hold and southern parts of Keroon. Igen Weyr is covering northern half and parts of Southern Telgar (and parts of Keroon.) Seeing as they're pretty close to opening the new weyr, they're probably going to wait on Searching there for upcoming Clutch for the new Sr. Queen. But.. I'm sure exception could be made ^.^ if you really want her to be from Igen.

There won't be any impressions under age 11-12. She's already gonna be getting a special dragon so she won't be the 'youngest' to impress as well Razz Wink So adjust her up a few, pleaaaaaase. Unless you want her to be Standing only for several turns.

yes, you're right.. Her picture is rather fitting, so we should keep it as such.




>.>  you ask WHY? There's a simple answer for that. Because I can.. Because she's small and small things are fun to pick on? ;P  hehehehe.


annnd, unless Kate has something else to add, I'll go ahead and approve her. If there ends up being anything else, we can just touch it up a little later.

Now we just need to get the Marc to send us ideas for what he wants in the special little hatchling this girlie's gonna get. Otherwise kate and jess will be coming up with something. So, let us know if you have thoughts on what kind of hatchling you'd like.

Picking on her 'cause she is smaller than you. Poor TeyTey. She is so unloved.  Sad 


Approved? Does this mean that her Bio Sheet is Complete?


What makes you think that her draggie will be anything other than a generic green?

Also i don't think this was answered from earlier.

Is she still at her cothold in Igen or has she been Searched?

Marc, JQ is sorry but Kate reminded her that girls impress at 15 -older than boys- generally, so can you make her at least 13-14 and that way she'll be either 14-15 when she impresses at the next clutch. Thanks! Sorry for having you change it again.

I shall.  Although, that information is incorrect.  It fifteen during the beginning of the Ninth Pass because there was just the one Weyr that was greatly understaffed.  They needed Riders who were already smart enough to follow complex orders straight away.

Eighth Pass and earlier the desired Candidates were prepubescent.  They wanted Riders of a young age so they were more attuned to their Dragons' capabilities and quirks before the kids were old enough to participate in Threadfall.  Also because it is easier for children to learn new skills than teenagers and adults.

As a fun side fact during the time period our club takes place in half of the Weyrs' leadership were in their early-to-mid teens.

We use in our setting a lot of stuff from 'later' passes. We like to blend realities a little here for our liking Razz anyway, good to know and really doens't surprise me how young they take on candidates/ WLs and whatever, .. HOWEVER ;P this being during a interval and not a PASS, there are plenty of older candidates to be found. In the middle of a PASS i fully expect age limits to drop to fill weyr needs. But we're still in the interval and the clutch sizes are only just starting to increase in size to compensate for needs during the Pass.

I do appreciate having Marcycolopedia of Pern though, for references Razz



And marc lol don't make me hug you.. OR kick you in the shin.
I got the impression for some reason that she wasn't searched yet, and We'll assume she is NOT searched yet unless you state otherwise.

I wasn't arguing the age-thing, mind you. I was just adding my knowledge to the pool. It had been changed as requested. Poor Tey-Tey, back where she started.


I know NOT of what you SPEAK. I was agreeing with Katie. I am a very agreeable guy. Razz Heh. I had considered her unSearched, myself. The real question is: can a draggie find her?
