Persona Profile: Vatirel
Birthday: m6 d19
Location: Dolphin Cove Weyr
Craft Rank: Senior Apprentice
Physical Description of Persona:
Vatirel currently stands at 5í7, and he hopes that heís not done growing yet. He has light brown skin, dark brown eyes, and black hair thatís extremely curly when it grows out so he keeps it cropped close to his skull. He has a big nose and bushy eyebrows, both features that embarrass him. He has a skinny build. He likes wearing bright clothing.
Emotional Description of Persona:
Vatirel is a boy who is easy to overlook in a crowd. He isnít stupid, and he isnít shy; he just doesnít stand out. He spends most of his time inside his head. Sometimes, thatís thinking about everything heíd like to make different. Sometimes, heís observing and looking for information about the world and patterns that his mind can solve.
Vatirel is sincere in his feelings; what he thinks is what comes out of his mouth. Heís generous and willing to help others, but gets flustered when someone doesnít want the help. Heís happiest on the periphery of a crowd or group and gets nervous when people look at him as the center of attention. When he feels overwhelmed by stimuli, he retreats into a place of solitude.
When Vatirel is interested in something, he can hyper focus on it. But when heís not interested, he retreats into his head and can stop paying attention. This meant uneven performance in classes and work, and as a child he was often accused of being a dimglow or wherrybrained. Now, he puts extra time into whatever heís doing to make sure that it comes out right. He doesnít want to be a disappointment.
History of Persona:
His mother Vatirra is a former Candidate who never Impressed, and instead turned her sights to becoming a Headwomanís assistant. Vatirra had a history of hanging around as a flight moth, so it wasnít a surprise when she got pregnant after one. She decided to keep the child, and named him Vatirel. She left him in the creche while she worked and kept him with her at night.
When Vatirel was 5 Turns old, his mother and her weyrmate Mezente transferred to the newly opened Rising Moons Weyr. Vatirel never really warmed up to Mezente as a father figure, tolerating him but preferring his own fatherís attention. It helped that Aíkades stayed involved in his life on restdays and special occasions, thanks to dragon travel making visits effortless.
Mezente died in Turn 3. The memories made the Weyr uncomfortable for his mother, so Vatirra transferred from Rising Moons to Dolphin Cove Weyr, taking her family with her. Vatirel was initially very reluctant about moving, afraid of losing all of his friends and of settling into a new place. Eventually, he settled into life at the new Weyr, making friends and passing Harper classes.
He applied to Stand as soon as he Turned 12 and was eligible. He has not Impressed yet, and so keeps working at his Craft and hoping the next Hatching will have the dragon for him.
