In Need of a Second Hand - OPEN - Wingsecond Applications for Ivory Feather

Not the large stone caverns that Weyr people are used to, these are buildings built on the top of the cliff, sometimes referred to as the Weyr Cliff. These buildings are all the same size, with multiple apartments for dragonriders to live in in each building. Because of space constraints, dragons sleep in large pavilions built around the dragonrider apartments.

Season - Early Spring
Time - Early Afternoon
Location - Atricis Weyr | N'kili's Apartment

Speaker of the Weyr N'kili and Opal Dragon Omiimiith

Rather than immediately search for her Wingsecond, N'kili took the time to familiarise herself with her knew Wing and the needs of her Wingmen. After all, Ivory Feather was a special Wing, for it was one that did not worry itself with fire and aerial tactics, but instead wielded words and social tact. While many of the riders and dragons lived under unique circumstances, each one was still valuable to the needs of Ivory Feather. This was due primarily to the fact that the Wing was the face of New Atricis, with each and every rider serving as that first point of contact between Weyr and holdsmen. Naturally, some where more skilled with words than others, but each pair still had a skill to offer to Ivory Feather... even men like Locke and his chimaera, Wraith.

As N'kili straightened out her living quarters for the arrival of curious riders, she thought about the man and her plans for him. Given time to build trust with him, and to understand his own drives as a rider and former slave, N'kili would make sure to put Locke to good use. But not yet.

For now, however, N'kili had another matter to tend to. She needed a Wingsecond. After careful consideration, and several discussions with her Wingmen, N'kili put together the criteria for the ideal Wingsecond. She then released the news to her fellow Wingleaders to share with their wingriders. In doing so, N'kili hoped to reach out to those beyond just her own wing in order, summoning those from other Wings who sought the opportunity to make a difference in New Atricis. Dragon hides would have no influence on her decision. Instead, it would depend solely on the capabilities of the rider.

The door was left open to any and all who chose to pay her a visit. They would find her in her living room, seated upon her couch with a stack of leaves. Each page of hide was meant for her guests to take home with them, for each leaf contained a set of questions for the hopefuls to answer.
  • What is your current name and rank, and who is your dragon?
  • Why are you interested in Wingsecondship, and what do you bring to the position?
  • Do you have any previous experience in Diplomacy or other qualifications to be considered?
  • What is your opinion of cultural practices that may disagree with your own cultural morals and beliefs?
  • What is your opinion on the slavery practices of Walled?
  • Do you have any other other concerns about social matters of the world and how they impact Atricis Weyr?
There they rested, ready for the taking. Each hopeful would have three days to answer them.

"Hello," she greeted each and every one of her visitors. "I am Speaker N'kili, and thank you for time." With each name, she memorised their face and rank so she could call upon her memory when she reviewed their answers. After a brief visit, which was rewarded with a biscuit and a cup of tea, N'kili sent her guest on their way before ushering in the next hopeful.

I would like a biscuit. N'kili interjected into N'kili's thoughts between visitors.

I will be sure to save one for you then, N'kili thought to her dragon as she welcomed yet another prospect.

If any of you are interested in this position, simply respond to this post with your rider's introduction to N'kili, and then attach their answers to N'kili's questions in this thread. Anyone can apply for the position, and N'kili will hold a final interview thread when she chooses her future Wingsecond.
