Name Pronounced: Voh-FAH-lee
Appearance: Vofali is about 5'1" and 130 pounds. Her hair is a dark brown to almost seem black, especially in contrast to her green eyes. Her slender curves and small frame belie her actual strength. Her eyes are narrow and quick; they can pick out the slightest movement in a person to give away their intentions. Her fingers are narrow, yet as strong as the rest of her. Her hair is shoulder length, and at first glance she can be mistaken as a boy. She has lost weight since the birth of her son, but not too much.
Personality: Even though at first glance Vofali may seem shy and withdrawn, she is actually quite outgoing and flirtatious. After Seisilth’s first flight she fell victim to her dragon’s sexual whims and had difficulty in keeping a partner. She thinks that in order for her to make anything work, she must try it first. She talks to everyone, yet keeps any secret told to her. She doesn't like rumors, and will not spread them no matter what. She is fiercely loyal to those who have her trust, and will follow her superior's orders almost without question.
Information about Vofali's pets
Pet Name: Lucky
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Lucky is a small blue and covered nose to tail in scars from his hatching, where wherries attacked his nest. He is a thin creature and pale to boot, his hide matching the sky in color. His wing sails are paler than the rest of his hide, giving the image of clouds almost. His left eye was punctured by a wherry claw and is unusable.
Personality: Lucky is very timid and shy. The trauma he suffered at his Hatching as well as his half-blindness has made him only really like Vofali. At first he was frightened of Heersofali and would often try to shoo him out of the weyr with wings and hisses before being reined in by Seisilth.
Second Pet Name: Sparkli
Pet Type: Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: Sparkli is, as his name suggests, sparkly. He is a light, almost coppery bronze who glitters in the sunlight. His body is bulky with an exceptionally long tail and a neck that end up with a darker head. Sparkli’s hide has faint echoes of his brother’s scars made from darker bronze patches.
Personality: Sparkli is curious, much more so that Lucky. He is always getting into things and trying to meet new people and flits. He loves Vofali and, thankfully, Heersofali as well. Sparkli is adamant in protecting the little one. With Volyn on the scene now, Sparkli is starting to realize just what his duties are. He is getting to be quite the protector.
Third Pet Name: Falisk
Pet Type: Green Wher
Appearance: Falisk is tall at the shoulder if lithe in body. Her tail, legs and neck are strong and on the stocky side which make her very capable when grown to carry loads for her human, or even her handler's daughter. Falisk's hide is a dark forest green that's uniform across her body save for one pale green spot on the tip of her muzzle that looks like she stuck it in flour.
Personality: Falisk may have Impressed to Vofali, but she's protective enough of Volyn and even (to a lesser extent) Heersofali that her human sometimes has to wonder if an Impressed wher can bond. She's protective of what's hers and will be hard-pressed to let another in her pack. Her bloodline, though her breeder wasn't sure, is 100% southern wild.
Information about Vofali's dragon
Dragon Name: Seisilth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Seisilth is a medium green with emerald hide that at times seems shot with gold. Head is shaped to give her a rather stern appearance that often puts off people who meet her. She is strong, like her rider, only not as thin. Her build is muscular and she has the endurance to match but nowhere near enough to last an entire fall.
Personality: From the get-go, Seisilth had a very nannying nature. Her clutchmates were always being worried over by their sister as well as their riders. Vofali’s near rejection of her only seemed to reinforce that feeling; Seisilth wants no one to feel unloved or unwanted. She is a social dragon and talks to many people, but especially the youngsters she Searches.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Having listened to her rider singing for her three years, Seisilth has developed a singing voice that is remarkably in tune for a dragon. Her size gives her enough stamina to last around half of a Fall, but her flame is small.
