NIVIKA

i smashed a plate over your head,
as we set fire to our bed
WHERCAPTAIN
34 | FEMALE | J. METALSMITH

APPEARANCE
5'1" ; Dark brown hair ; Brown eyes ; Felicia Porter

Close enough to a model physique, sans height, Nivika holds a specific grace and poise while upright. While her arms might reach beyond her thin waistline, the proportions do not line up well with a low roll of five feet and one inch from the soles of her feet to her scalp. Not much fat lines her bones and organs, and instead, a great deal of weight comes from her muscles- especially the arms and legs. Complexion does allow sweat through her pores and roll down her bronze skintone, and acne can be spotted around her forehead and neckline. A heavy dust of freckles splatters across her face, arms, and some of the upper back. A windswept style with extremely short sides marks her deep brown hair to a point, and her narrowed, dark brown eyes creates a lovely comparison. On many parts of her body, including the upper and lower arms and legs, chest, and a few small nicks around her neck, lie scars from her craft and wher. In all- well, she might not cut it for a model, though she does own one heck of a stare.

PERSONALITY
While her legs might be able to crush a man's skull, the bite behind the gorgeous face goes beyond her bark. Apathetic to no end, it isn't like she doesn't care about how your leg broke in a few places. Mostly, she'd rather not hear it, unless it were some riveting tale involving wherries. Light humor, harr harr. Nivi would rather not waste time, leading into a fairly awful impatience she needs to work upon. Work needs to be done, and she's not about to sit around and wait for it to magically appear finished; nothing would be done otherwise. While lies may come out of her mouth frequently, deep down remains an incredibly honest person who will tell it to you straight if the need arises. In a way, it seems insensitive- what, with her throwing out a heartfelt tone in order to allow it to get across one's skull. She can play good or bad cop, though the latter works best with her ways.

Looking upon the world through a thin sheet of glass, not much of it appeals to her interest. This is where she takes note of many who want to live with their own self-interest, rather than appealing to the honorable codes and laws of the land. Truly, it disgusts her when some blatantly seek out the highest rank without thinking consequences, and it leaves a horrid taste in her mouth. She can be vocal about these opinions, as well.

Even with a mostly negative and vocal of opinion personality, a few traits came out right. Writing out a list of pros and cons to something before indulging into it assists in a fairly logical standpoint on a variety of topics. For example, she can probably tell you most of the workspace in a metalsmithing craft as well as a few other general topics. She analyzes problems and tends to come up with temporary solutions until a proper one is formed. Honestly, she's a responsible adult, devoid of most (if not all) immature thoughts coming her way. She'll take issues into her own hands, look after others, and so on; it only increases with devotion to companions. She isn't the greatest at keeping relations outside of professional, but if she does, they can bet on her being there for them, no matter the cost. (However, Nivisk comes before anyone else, no matter what she says.)

HISTORY
- Born in Telgar Weyr (Summer T. 2880) to a couple of dragonriders, a greenrider and brownrider. She remained the only child.
- Mostly set in the creche with the other weyrbrats, where she made a few friends here and there before resenting them a bit. Occasionally, she would get picked on for her small size.
- Got herself into an apprenticeship at Telgar Hold for metalsmithing at age ten, mostly to get away from the creche and the high probability of becoming a dragon candidate (something she didn't want). Something about dragons freaked her out.
- Once she turned nineteen, she walked the tables and became a journeywoman; she was very ecstatic and enjoyed her work.
- As part of a congratulations, you did it, sort of thing, her previous mentor brought her to a green wher's hatching in Fort. She basically fell in love at first sight with the huge beasts.
- Even though she wasn't about to drop her entire career, she thought it would be interesting to slide into a wher candidate life for a turn or two, especially with a gold's clutch coming up.
- Another green's clutch came up first, with no luck; next came the gold's, who had an iron sire. The mother glanced her over- a newly turned twenty turn old woman- and made a few disgruntled noises before allowing her an egg.
- What formed inside of the shell ended up as a very large, and very threatening in appearance, iron. She blooded her hand and offered it to the wherlet, who accepted it after a wary glance at her. A few harsh stares were exchanged before the bond formed, with his name revealed as Nivisk for a little stronger than medium bond.
- Wherling training took her for a spin as she attempted- and mostly succeeded- in taming and controlling the iron with her own will's strength. Once graduating, they were blindsided with joining the hold wars, something neither of which wanted to go through. After a few seasons, they removed themselves from the conflict and returned to metalsmithing.
- In a struggle of returning to her craft, the news of a possible haven from the chaos reaches her ears around the time Discovery Weyr is established. Both start packing their bags and getting ready to leave Fort and the two arrive at the end of turn 2911.
- Without a gold wher joining the rest of the whers, a sudden surge to whercaptain- for Nivisk was the one with the highest command- shocked both handler and wher equally. As such, it took a while to get accustomed to their new position outside of the war, and even she misses her old craft when drowning in paperwork.

NIVISK

the pure at heart go putrid
when the wolfbane blooms
PACKLEADER
14 | IRON | WAYFINDERS

APPEARANCE
While his bonded might be small in size, he most certainly is not. From foot to shoulder, he ends up just shy of the record of huge irons at seven feet, eleven inches- practically towering over his beloved handler. A Fort-bred wher, through and through, the amount of muscles on his body do not waver; he was built for combat, and he certainly loves it. Broad shoulders and slightly smaller hips, his proportions waver more into the small-leg, tall-body ratio, with his belly closer to the ground than he would want. Don't let him catch you staring at his corgi-like dilemma; he'll return the stare with as much intensity as he can muster to show his displeasure. As far as the rest of him goes, the hide casts a dull shine for his iron rank with a deep, smokey grey base and a tint of lavender shows in different lighting. On both the edge of the wing sails and the legs, a rusted appearance in the crimson shade makes a gradient from soles to mid-leg, splattering out like human blood stained. It's only a marking pattern, though. No need to be too alarmed. However, on his face lie spots around his eyes, travelling backward toward his headknobs, and meet up near a vivid 'X' scar across his muzzle. Other than there, several other jagged marks line his hide, and he shows them all with pride.

PERSONALITY
- AGGRESSIVE ;; While all whers have their limits in terms of aggression, Nivisk has a very short one. He'll jump into snarling at those he considers the enemy, though he will never kill without the consent of his handler. Not to mention, he is a tad bit jumpy when someone frightens him.
- LEERY ;; If he has good reason, such as believing you're a thief or horrid person in general, he won't be very open to conversation, save for a "Leave" or something similar. This has not gotten better with age.
- INTIMIDATING ;; Especially with that look of his, and his size, he will purposefully lean over and bare his teeth in your direction. Oh, it doesn't have to be for defense. He might think it's funny to see people run away, screaming or crying from his foolishness.
- RELUCTANT ;; Okay, family secret. He never wanted to take part in the hold wars, and as soon as word came for a haven away from it all, he wanted to go to Discovery. At all costs. He really wants to be comfortable where he lives, and he's reluctant to take charge of situations unless direly needed. He just wants to live, alright?
- HEARTFELT ;; Every emotion coming from him is genuine. Joy, sorrow, rage- all have a purpose for existing in him during that time, and outbursts of feeling are not uncommon. Everything about him is genuine and hopeful, even if some might not see it.
- VOCAL ;; Nivisk never shuts up. Literally. Something gained since he was a wherlet was the nickname for his human friends and Nivika- Mama. It never mattered about the gender of the person, it was always Mama. It stuck, and, well, made him a very adorable baby at one time. It still is endearing, but not so much when he doesn't call you it.
- LAID-BACK ;; Generally, he's not looking for adventure; he's waiting for it to come to him. After several turns of hustle and bustle, he just wants to relax, even if it's unlikely.
- COURAGEOUS ;; He'll always take a bullet or bow for those he loves, no matter the cost. He isn't afraid of death or disease (felines are another thing), nor will he sit by as his handler remains in an uncomfortable position. He's there for her, always.
