Candidate Questionnaire

In here, any an all characters, from humans the dragonkin, current and deceased, can be found inside this forum. Character creation guidelines and profile templates can also be found in here in the main section of the forum. In the main section of the forum in here is where you post your characters for approval.
Forum rules
Please Read This Before Creating a Character! Or, if adopting, please read This first!
Once your character is approved and moved to the proper forum, please make sure you add them into your signature with a link to their profile. This will make it much easier to find their profiles later on for you and others, as there is currently no way to organize forums by thread title by default (though you can use the dropdown menus at the bottom to do so). So keeping them in your signature will make it easier to find the profiles as you need them.

Below is a form for our candidate Questionnaire. Please note that the Questionnaire is completely optional, so there is no requirement to fill it out if you truly don't mind. Also note that the questionnaire is in two parts, an OOC part and an IC part. If filling out, the IC part is optional, but it can help give the staff (and the player too) some insight into your character. This Questionnaire can be filled out by any type of candidate. If there is any section you don't feel is applicable to you or your character, you can put N/A.

All filled out Questionnaires can be posted here. Questionnares for characters that have Impressed/Bonded will be removed from this thread to keep things tidy. If you want to fill this out for a hidden candidate, that's perfectly acceptable. If you want to fill out the IC portions for a hidden candidate, you can either answer them as if they were a full candidate, or as a hypothetical question posed to your character.

*Please try to keep this thread to One Post per Player* Whenever you need to add a Questionnaire, just edit in your new candidate. This makes it much easier on the Staff to locate the candidates needed whenever a Hatching is just around the corner.

I'd also like to take a moment to let everyone know that Questionnares aren't a 100% guarantee. The staff will take Questionnaire answers into deep consideration, and do our best to give you something you will be happy with based on how you answered. If you have very specific wants and we can't give you all of those, we will do our best to give you the ones we can give to you and hope to still make you happy.

For the Player - To be filled out OOC
Character Name: Norjira
Type of Candidacy: Pearl
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled? Yes!

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I’m pretty open when it comes to Jira. He’s still learning the ropes.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
Nothing comes to mind.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond? How the characters react to their new bonds and the paths that are now open to them. Or now closed depending on the occasion.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character? Don’t plan on it!
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy? It sort of fell into my lap. I came to the South for a new way of life and the Pearls caught my attention right away.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider/Wherhandler/Dayhandler? Honestly? I’m not sure. There’s so much to learn about these amazing creatures that I’m not sure where to begin.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower? A follower, though I’m willing to step up to get things done.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to? I haven’t given it much thought really.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?My best traits? I’m hard working and down to earth or as my sisters call it: a stick in the mud. My worst? I’m blunt and honest to a fault. No need to sugar coat things when there’s work to be done!

For the Player - To be filled out OOC
Character Name: Tralexi
Type of Candidacy: Daywher
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled? Yes please! More scars are always fun to play with. Plus as a healer she’s usually a tough patient to deal with.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I don’t see Tralexi coming out of her shell just yet so any sort of leadership role wouldn’t be a good place for Lexi. Given the right partner though she could become a good second.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
I’m pretty much open for anything for Tralexi. She’ll need a strong partner to help her overcome her past.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond? I love seeing the babies and the reactions everyone has for them. As for Tralexi I’m looking forward to having her be surprised at how supportive a bonding will be.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character? Yes. I’m getting a Rare Mutation token for Tralexi. Feel free to surprise us though!
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy? I was looking to join my older brother in the Wings but the one trip I shared with him on Delyath’s back made me realize how little I like to be in the air. Let me keep my feet on the ground!

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider/Wherhandler/Dayhandler?
To continue my learning and hopefully learn more about the Daywhers and their healing.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower? A follower. I’m not that comfortable making decisions that impact other’s lives.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
A supporting role in the group. Again, I’m not the sort to take up leadership.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
My worst traits are the easiest to spot. I’m shy, painfully so sometimes and rather nervous about social interactions. Though once I get to know a soul I do play small pranks on them. As for my better traits, I’ve been told that I’m self-reliant and rather clever. Personally I see my work-ethic as my best trait.

For the Player - To be filled out OOC
Character Name: Jaistan
Type of Candidacy: Dragon
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled? Yes please! Just nothing that would leave him grounded and permanently injured.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I'd be happy with any role for Jaistan and his dragon. He's got some growing up to do and I think weyrlinghood would help with that.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
I'm open for anything!

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
I love the hunger passing between dragonet and human. It's a great way to break the ice!

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character? Not yet. I'm still learning Jace's personality.
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy? Growing up I loved the visits from my uncle Jai'f and his blue. I had a secret hope to become a dragon rider on my own merits one day.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider/Wherhandler/Dayhandler? I'd like to be an asset to the weyr one day. As a rider, as a Harper, or as both, I'd love to leave my mark behind for the future generations to see.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower? A little bit of both? It's hard to be a leader when you have two older sisters like mine but I've learned how to lead a vocal grouping.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to? I've never given it much thought... Tarinath always told me the dragon chooses and wouldn't let me dream that far ahead.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
I'm a friendly guy so I guess that's the best thing about me? I'm always ready with a smile, an ear or my last mark if you need it. My worst? I guess that's my avoidance of confrontations. I'm no good in a fight or an argument. I'll fold and compromise long before I get angry.

Character Name: Teagen
Type of Candidacy: Daywher
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
Yes, admittedly, because for some reason Teagen is turning into my punching bag, lol. But lucky for her it might not be as likely with Daywhers.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
Nothing really in particular or "planned" for Teagen here. Teagen used to believe herself a leader potential, dreaming of a Gold dragon. However, growing up with a Grandmother who tended to point out Teagen's "boyish" looks, the events that have traumatized her, and the losses she has suffered, that youthful confidence she once had has been beaten down. So perhaps, what I'm getting at here, is anything that could potentially boost Teagen's confidence in herself one day (though just about any role I think has that potential for her).

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
While I am open to just about any color, I think the one exception would be a Green this time. As much as I adore greens, something tells me that Teagen might not mesh best with a Green Daywher. BUT if you guys think I'm totally off about that then disregard this!

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
Nothing particular this time, I just love it all, and am pretty excited this time around to see what's being planned.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
Currently no tokens purchased. Teagen is going to become an official Daywher candidate before the hatching some time, so she shouldn't need Stands (though if that changes I'll be sure to update here and her profile).
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
---to be filled out when it happens IC---

What would you like to accomplish as a Dayhandler?
---to be filled out when candidacy happens IC---

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
"Ah, I would have to say... a follower perhaps," she admits as she lowers her gaze and ducks her head a little, making herself smaller. "I used to think I could be a leader... but now... probably not. I think the only time I've taken charge was when my family were taken away... but I had to fend for myself and my cousin then, and make sure we survived. That's different than regular leadership. I'm much more used to being told what to do."

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
"Oh, ummm... Maybe a Green, or a Gray if I had to pick something. Or..." she bit her lip nervously, shifting a bit. "The Whites are quite pretty... Shards that must sound bad coming from me though, never mind, forget I said that last part."

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
Teagen can't help but chuckle dryly. "I don't think I know anymore. After leaving Dragon Candidacy I just... worked all the time. It was easier to just focus on working than everything else. But I... I think I'm relearning who I am... I don't know, I'm sorry."

For the Player - To be filled out OOC
Character Name: Teagen
Type of Candidacy: Dragon
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
Sure! As if Teagen hasn't been though enough already, lol

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I'm honestly not sure here, Teagen has come to the Weyr far more nervous and panicky than she normally is, I think just the trauma of everything she has been through and all. I'm still really getting to know her as a character though, and haven't really been able to get as much play for her as I would have liked by now.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
Pretty open here, although I don't think I want Teagen to Impress this time. I really don't have a feel for her yet due to RL getting in the way of playing her.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
Of course I love it all, as for anything specific for Teagen, not really here.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
Nope


For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
"Ah, well, I did stand for a little while in Walled, but dropped out because of some things that happened... Then my cousin Teaphena was Searched after we came here, and I didn't want her to go into the barracks by herself, so I joined candidacy with her. I did used to have a dream of being a dragonrider, a Queenrider especially, believe it or not," she finishes with a lighthearted chuckle.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider/Wherhandler/Dayhandler?
"I'm... not sure now. I used to know, in Walled I wanted to Impress a Queen, I wanted to become a figure for my people, someone they could look up to and who could lead as well. But... I'm not so sure now."

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
"I suppose... a bit of both? I used to think of myself as a possible leader, or at least aspired to it, but in Walled with old families it can be hard to cultivate that part of yourself when you're just expected to serve the family if you don't Impress a dragon."

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
"Perhaps... a blue maybe, or a brown. I know I used to dream of Gold, but I don't think a Gold would choose me."

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
"I don't really know... I guess I've never thought about it before... determined maybe, for something good about me, I don't think I'd have gotten us to where we needed to be to come to Atricis without that. Worst traits though? ... perhaps... Giving up too easily?"

Character Name: Arden
Type of Candidacy: Dragon
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled? Yes, though please spare her face. Arden probably SHOULD get mauled at at least one Hatching before the one she Impresses at.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
Arden is ambitious and will be looking for a way to be a leader, even without a gold.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
She probably isn't suited for a rank below brown.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
I love them all.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
I will probably purchase an Impression token eventually.
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
I was Searched a few turns ago, but it was a bad time because my sister needed my help. I came now, because she is finally settled into her new life.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider/Wherhandler/Dayhandler?
I want to earn respect, for myself and my family.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
I think that I could be a leader, eventually. I am sure I would have a lot to learn first.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
I. . .I am sure that I would be happy with whatever dragon might choose me.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
I am very organized, and good at planning . . . but I don't always remember to ask everyone's opinions before moving forward with a plan.

For the Player - To be filled out OOC
Character Name: Derris
Type of Candidacy: Dragon or pearl (stands)
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled? Yes, it could probably be character building, but since he is a stands candidate it might be difficult to pull off.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I think Derris just needs to learn to accept himself - he needs a dragon or pearl who will refuse to accept his self-loathing.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
I think Derris would benefit from Impressing to a female.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
I should probably buy one to specify female. . . .

For the Player - To be filled out OOC
Character Name: Vikaki
Type of Candidacy: Pearl (stands)
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
No, Vikaki has had it pretty hard already. Anyway, she's a stands candidate because of her disability, so it seems unlikely.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
Vikaki would enjoy being an explorer, when she gets a bit older.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
No, she'd be good with anything

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
I love them all!

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
Not at this point!

For the Player - To be filled out OOC
Character Name: Tempek
Type of Candidacy: Wher
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled? That would be fine, as long as his kids aren't watching.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I think Tempek could do well with any personality of wher, but he would be happiest with whers that are relaxed enough to be around his kids.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
I just wouldn't want any that would refuse to dual-bond.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
I have a dual-bond token, but plan to give Tempek a wher egg I have, so I wouldn't want him to bond to two at the same hatching.
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
Well, I can't be out in the sun anymore. Otherwise I'm healthy, but after I got sick a few turns ago, my skin got really sensitive to the sun. So I can only handle guard shifts at night, and that's kind of limiting. I would never be able to get promoted, and as I got older, being stuck on grunt shifts would probably get to be too much for me. So working with whers would be like turning my weakness into my strength. I had no idea that I would be able to hear them. I never spent much time around them before coming here, and whers aren't all that talkative to start with, but once I realized I could hear all of them, it made even more sense to be a wher candidate.


What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider/Wherhandler/Dayhandler?
I just want to be an effective guard, take care of my family and my responsibilities.


Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
I'm somewhere in the middle. I can take charge in an emergency, but I don't want to have to plan things during the calm times.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
I kind of doubt I'd get a big aggressive fighter, just doesn't seem like me. I am capable of fighting, but I don't think it should be your first choice.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
I'm pretty mellow, good with kids, people feel safe around me. But I might be too laid back, and some people think I'm not taking them seriously.

Character Name: Amuderudalya
Type of Candidacy: Dragon Stands Candidate
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?

I am, though she is a stands candidate, so I don't know of a circumstance would present itself that she can be.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
Due to her health, I do not think she could safely be a fighting Wingrider. That said, she would do well as a diplomat, and will likely end up in Ivory Feather willingly. Perhaps a dragon as sensitive as her, or maybe more outgoing to help with this role.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?

Nothing abrasive or blunt, and no dragon considered high rank. Low to Mid rank only, please <3

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?

Ummmm... everything? I love seeing their emerging personalities when they break shell.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?

I did. I am requesting a female dragon if possible. She also has an Albino Major Dragonkin Token (earned from a 2019 chocolate dragon) added to her sheet with Marve's approval.

Character Name: Adrune
Type of Candidacy: Dragon candidate
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?

Yes, cut him up as you see fit, though no removal of his appendages, fingers, toes, etc... Anything else goes.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?

Honestly, he is so laid back and complacent, I do not see him in any sort of leadership role at this time, and likely never. He is a good hard worker, and will make for a dutiful wingrider.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?

No ambitious dragons that will cultivate him to be a strong leader, or anything like that.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
No preference.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
I have, and am requesting a male dragon, though I am open to a green for him too if the fit is right.

I don't know. Never really given it much thought.

Character Name: Irali
Type of Candidacy: Dragon Candidate
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
I am open to it, though probably nothing too serious. It is not for the fact I don't want her to get hurt, but Irali tends to pay attention and think quick on her feet, so she tends to be really good about staying out of the way.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
For Irali, I am honestly going with the flow for her. I could easily see her in nearly any roll. She is quick witted, sharp, decisive, albeit impulsive, and courageous. She could just as easily be a wingrider as a leader, but I am flexible with her and willing to see what happens to her.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
Honestly, no females... except for maybe green? I want a male for her, but I'm always open to a good green.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
N/A

What brought you into Candidacy?
My age. I've been waiting for this forever! I've been a weyr for so long and all I've ever wanted was to become a dragonrider. So as soon as I turned twelve, I went for it.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider?
You mean besides fight thread? Be a leader like my mum. Help others and stand up to people who would put me and my friends down.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?[/b
Leader for sure. I don't follow anyone.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
Something big, like a garnet or gold.

Ummm... why do you want me to answer that?

Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?

Yes, you can even give her a good scar, but no missing appendages or anything like that.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
Though young, Faveonn is a strong woman slowly growing into herself, and becoming bold and confident. I have a preference for her Impress to a dragon who will help her eventually achieve a leadership role.

No Zultanites and no Pyrite/Opals

The man is mostly blind...I would feel it's almost irresponsible if he doesn't get scratched up in some way. Be as evil to him as you'd like. If you need fodder for evil...he's your man. Just don't kill him.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I'm leaning more towards diplomacy/caretaker for him...but I'll happily take whatever you want to give him.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
Um...not really. You can even go against what I have on his Bond Token

C'mon...it's me...I like evil. However, I want it to make sense.

I do have one for Cal that says 'Blood or Jewel', but again I'm not hard set on that. He also has a Genderbent Token from Secret Santa the year before last - but don't feel pressure in using it.

Help people. It's hard to not want to when you can literally feel their pain. Not sure what capacity that most relate to with dayhandler jobs, but as long as I am sincerely helpful I will be happy.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
Neither. I've been independent for so much of my life that I don't think I'd make a good leader or a good follower. I literally am used to forging my own trails, following or leading others would be difficult for me.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
If any of them find me worthy enough considering....well...considering certain variables...I'll be thrilled.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
I'm determined, but I'm stubborn. I'm sympathetic, but I'm a pushover. I'm resourceful, but I don't follow instructions well. I know there are more, but those are the ones that stand out to me right now.

Character Name: Imero
Type of Candidacy: Dragon
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
Yes, claw rakes and non-life threatening wounds/injuries.

What are things you would like your character and dragoInkin to be able to do?
I don't know if I see Imero ever being in a leadership position. I would like Imero to learn more responsibility and grow in that aspect. Diplomats might be interesting. I'm leaning toward them being in a wing but navigate more toward an assistant job or diplomat in the future and less normal dragonriding duties.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
For Imero at least, overly angry personality traits I feel wouldn't mesh well. I was thinking of an energetic/playful or serious/dutiful sorts of personalities so anything other than those are kind of on my do not want list but as long as it's not violent or angry traits I can work with or explore them! Color wise there's nothing I'm against but he has a sport/chim token on him so not sure if this matters.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
I tend to have the most fun with complimentary/semi sameish, or opposite personality types as far as bonds. Explosive eggs, sending shards all over and/or dragonets being confident/sensing their and making a beeline right for their riders are some of my fav tropes.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
Yes, a chim/sport token. Color preferences are in his application in the spoiler tag under the token.

Character Name: Kalesskel
Type of Candidacy: Wher
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
Yes but nothing that would dismember or kill him.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
(Leadership? Personality types you might want to see? Diplomacy? etc.) Given Kal's strong sense of justice and personal ethics I can see him focusing more on fighting against the darker side of human nature. He is more likely to overlook a minor crime if it is more out of necessity but put a quick stop to those bullying those weaker than them just because they can. He is very much against corruption and people who don't respect others regardless of difference in rank. Thus I would like to see Kal teamed with a wher or two who share some of his own moral code.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
(Any colors you absolutely do NOT want for your character? Personality types? Gender?)
Overly aggressive, disrepectiful or otherwise very opposite of who Kal is. They dont' have to be carbon copies of him and can have some opposing views or quirks but something that can still work with Kal's ethics and personality.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
The wonderful art really makes them pop. That and interesting hatching/interactions once out of the shell (but still appropriate for a hatchling) Some mauling especially when there's good cause (not just blood for blood's sake.) Customization the hatching/Impression posts a little to react to what Candidates and other Hatchlings have done.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
I will be purchasing a dual bond and likely using either a one time color token or mutation token (have both as prizes but will only use one for this character. For a Dualbond I'm thinking maybe an Agate and Prism or Green and Brown. Or any mix that we don't already have works for me. (I'm also open for Kal to Impress only one Wher at the next Hatching too, he can always dualbond another time.)
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
Like many young men I had dreams of being a dragnrider but it was never as high a priority with me. Mastering the use of twin blades and being a good Legionaire and potentially replacing my father as Weapons's trainer was always a good fallback especially after failing to Impress the first few times I stood. Then I aged out and for reasons I rather not get into I left the Legion and came here to New Atricis to become a Wher Candidate. The creatures were something new and fascinating and I feel a nocturnal life and having such a loyal ally at my side would serve me well. Being a Guard of New Atricis a place I've come to see as far more just and fair in how it administers it's laws compared to my home is now my goal. A job both filled with adventure and purpose and my skills will serve well here.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider/Wherhandler/Dayhandler?
I think I answered this in part above, I wish to serve a Weyr who values life and justice above all else and respects people in general. A place that doesn't place position and power over others and personal ambitions above the law and above the welfare of the entire Weyr. I also crave excitement and adventure and being a Wherhandler feels like it could hold plenty of challenge for me.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
Oddly enough I don't see myself as a leader but I am not much of a follower either. It depends on the situation really. I don't presume I could be a fine leader but one thing I do know is I refuse to follow any leader who acts purely out of her or his own interests and not for the betterment of all who serve. I have no problem following the orders of a Leader I respect but should I lose trust in a leader then it'll be very difficult for me to continue to follow. I am not afraid to speak my mind and provide helpful advice if the situation warrants it not that I assume any advice I have to give must be followed. If I am put in charge of a task I certainly will listen to those in my command if they have good advice and take it in consideration and I may even use it should it prove a good idea. To put it shortly I am comfortable leading or following as the situation calls for.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing/Bonding to?
I'm a fighter by nature but a man who lives his life by his own code and respects the rules and regulations he must live under as long as they are just. As I'm still fairly new to being a Wher Candidate I am not completely sure which colour would suit me best. I don't think a clutcher would suit me, at least not any of the larger ladies. I can see myself doing quite well alongside any colour to be honest, all for various reasons but mostly a brown or Agate is likely to fit the best. Then again given my natural agility perhaps a green or Prism may match my style of combat. Fast and quick, overwhelm with speed and well placed blows...if words cannot solve any given issue. I don't want you to think fighting is the only way I solve problems, in fact I prefer to solve conflict with words and resort to conflict as a last resort.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
My best traits would be my respect for others and having a code of ethics that focuses on doing what is just and good. Keeping an open mind and not jumping to conclusions based on only half the facts. Being able to put myself in the shoes of others to better understand their motivations.
I'm stubborn especially when it comes to my personal believes and maybe a bit reckless as I do enjoy a challenge and maybe a bit too confident in my ability to handle most combat situations. Or perhaps I am more critical about myself than others would see it.

Character Name: Feraliss
Type of Candidacy: Wher (floof and traditional)
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
I'm honestly more than fine with this. I'd really like for him to be mauled in fact if you'd be willing to make this happen; I'd only like for him to keep his limbs and eyes. Things such as fingers and toes going missing, or perhaps a piece of ear are really open for being messed up. Really, you can fuck his shit up and I wouldn't mind in the slightest; this boy could honestly handle it.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
For Feral, I would like something that would challenge him, his thought processes, personality, and role in life. He was born and raised as a raider and pseudo-criminal with a fast paced, rough, difficult life, and I'd something that pushes him into a completely different box no matter how difficult a process it might be for him to get from one to the other - or how much it will challenge his comfort zones in the end. When I say I want this boy to regret becoming a candidate in the first place all together, I sincerely mean it - I want to play with all the highs and lows, but I want there to be plenty of challenges and hurdles to jump over along the way; I'd like the chance to show that not all bonds are made of sunshine and rainbows from he very start.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
Absolutely not; I'll be happy with whatever is decided for him or any of my characters.

What are some of your favorite things to see in a dragonkin Hatching and/or Impression/Bond?
This section is going to become a pretty standard copy/paste between all of my questionnaires because in all honesty my answer will not change between any of them. There is not a single thing I don't like about hatchings or Impressions/Bondings. I adore what is done for my characters from the interactions to the process of receiving a baby, and the efforts put into things by the staff whether I'm on the staff or merely a member ALWAYS thrills me. I really like being able to have fun with other members during the hatchings even if all we do is hyping one another up behind the scenes, but the best parts of course happen to be the writing and creative process that go on on screen. I know I could say all of this a little more shortly, but its all things that comes from a genuine, honest, and appreciative place.

Have you purchased, or plan on purchasing, a Bond/Impression Token for your character?
At the moment I don't have anything for him but I might purchase a dualbond token for him in the future, all things depending.
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
I had no other choice in the matter really. I don't wish to go into details, but suffice to say, it was really a matter of life or death; I think I chose well enough and in the end, I've been made all the better for it.

What would you like to accomplish as a Wherhandler?
I just… don’t want to go back North. We're going to leave it at that, okay?

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
A little bit of both. I was born of leadership, but I've lived my life as a reluctant follower. I've led groups of men, but I'm capable of following good leaders without argue. So it really depends on where I'm needed, how I'm needed, and whether or not I'm right for the role.

What color/role do you see yourself Bonding to?
Why is this question being asked of me? Colors and roles shouldn't matter so long as a bond is made, isn't that what we're told?

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
I’m kindhearted, and resourceful, capable of making due no matter the situation I’m in. But I think that can be a bad trait when you think about it - you shouldn’t have to feel so desperate about your situation that you’d be willing to do anything just to survive.

Character Name: Mikaylan
Type of Candidacy: Dragon
Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
With Mick, I would honestly like to see her bleed in some manner come hatching day. I don't want to see her lose anything - her eyes, her hearing, limbs or digits - but I would like to see her hurt if possible. If this will keep her from Impressing and leaves her standing until the next clutch, then in all honesty that's fine - I'm not going to argue with having a gob of writing fodder thrown in my direction.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
I think what I'm most eager for is the potential of character growth, and unless otherwise noted, a lot of what I'll say in my subsequent questionnaires from here on out will often mention the subject of character growth. I'm really eager for that when it comes to a lot of my Impressions and Bondings, and the possibility to see the fruitful potential that comes with the growth that follows a melding of minds.

Are there any dragonkin you would NOT want for your character?
I don't usually get picky, but I'd rather not have a male dragon or something overly large for her; something small and petite would be preferred or Mick.

Yes, I have the following attached to her right now:

With a preference for a green or female dragon.
For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
I'm from the Igen territory, and while my family's farm wasn't directly affeced by the earthquake that struck the Weyr, we were still checked upon by dragons, both from Atricis and the other Weyrs of the North. One of those dragons from Atricis decided that I would make a worthy enough candidate and my family thought it was an honorable thing that couldn't be turned down, so I didn't. It was scary coming to the Weyr, and it still unnerves me. I don't know if I'll ever get used to it and I spend a good portion of my free time with the familiar out in the Weyr Yard - the farmlands, the green houses, by the lake.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonrider?
I think I would like to make my family proud, most of all. I would be the first dragonrider in our bloodline, so it would be a very important moment in our history. That would be most important to us, I think, and what I would want to see accomplished the most. I suppose it’s a little selfish of me to say, considering I would be helping in more ways than that - I would also be helping protect the planet from Thread. So I think… I know… that those would be my two greatest accomplishments as a rider.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
Oh, there's no question in my mind that I'm the furthest thing from a leader. I'm capable of herding children and some animals, i'm fine with plants and sometimes whispering to them, but when it comes to people I tend to shy away from large groups of them, and there are times when I'm no better around small groups and singles. I know for a fact that I'm a follower, and I think - I suppose I should say that I know, really... - that I'm content with that.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing to?
I'm really not sure, and truth be told, I'm fairly certain, almost downright positive, that I would be happy with anything that approaches me and decides I'm worthy enough to be their rider. Really, that should be enough for anyone that goes onto sands and surrounds hatching eggs.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
I'm very determined, I work hard, and I can always be depended on. But my faults? I'm sorry to say that as a person, I can be self-sacrificing to a fault, though really, I don't always regret being the way that I am. I put others before myself always and I don't always open up easily either. Though really are those such bad things? Placing the needs of others to such a high importance... what's so wrong about that? There really isn't anything wrong with that when you think about it.

Are you open to the potential of your character getting mauled?
Yes, please and thank you. Wreck her shit, take a chunk out of her, just let her see and walk and use her arms and hands please.

What are things you would like your character and dragonkin to be able to do?
Character growth, first and foremost; I would like to continue her trend of growth.

For the Character - to be filled out IC (optional)
What brought you into Candidacy?
I kind of wanted to get away from home? I used candidacy as the excuse I needed to finally get away, and once I got here, I slowly… started to emerge from the wool my parents had pulled over my face for so long. Now that I’m here, I’m most eager to Impress.

What would you like to accomplish as a Dragonriderr?
To protect Pern and continue to hold onto my independence.

Do you think of yourself as a leader or potential leader? Or more of a follower?
I don’t know about now, but I think with a little more time, a little bit of training, I could be. I finally have a backbone thanks to my friend Angela, so I know if I can gain that, I would be able to gain the ability to lead. Otherwise, I’d have no problem following either.

What color/role do you see yourself Impressing to?
Whatever finds me worthy, I would not say no to; hide shouldn’t matter so long as a dragon wants to be mine.

What do you think your best and worst traits are?
My best and worst are one in the same - the fact that I’m finding myself, but that its happening when I’m at this point in my life, that I couldn’t see so many of my worst pieces of myself before. But I’m glad that I can grow from it, and I’m glad that I’m growing as a person. It’s one of the best things that could ever happen to me; so long as I continue to see those hidden nooks and crannies of my personality, I’ll gladly stare at them if it means growth.
