Kyra is a young woman, seemingly in her late teens, who would probably find the description of 'petite' a little generous. She's short, probably only about five feet, some inches, and has the physique of an acrobat or ballerina: slim, athletic, and not overly copious on curves. Her hair, cropped short into a feathery pixie cut, is a deep, rich mahogany brown that often looks black in the right light and when it gets wet. Off-setting the darkness of her hair without stepping outside of the color family, her large puppy-ish eyes are actually a warm honey brown nearing amber-gold; a few flecks of green suggest they may, in fact, be hazel. Her features add to the overall fae perception her hair and size might create, with a narrow chin, smooth cheekbones, and a strong but gently curved jawline.

If her ears were pointed, it would be complete, but they are, sadly, just ears. She has thick and serious eyebrows above those big eyes of hers, which tends to keep her from looking overly waifish, a fine, small nose, and a full, soft mouth, with lips that usually look like they've been getting chewed on. Her skin is blemished by an impressive degree of freckling, from her face down over her arms and likely over the rest of her, but is otherwise a smooth light cinnamon, darker if she spends time in the sun. Because of her height and modest curves, it's not abnormal for people to confuse Kyra's age, as she typically looks younger than she really is.


History

Born in Fort Weyr, Kyra has lived pretty constantly in a state of never living in any constant state. Her mother, notorious for a lot of things, wasn't really involved with her father - they were always just friends - but that didn't mean they were bad parents. Kadesh, always a source of fun and lessons best learned earlier rather than later, and her somewhat doting, serious-minded father, managed to raise her (and her brother Branyn) fairly well, despite living in different weyrs and eventually in different parts of Pern. At the moment, Kyra primarily lives with her mother at Half Moon Bay Weyr, but she often travels out to Fort to see her father as well, meaning her ability to withstand temperature changes has come along to the point where she muses she could probably live on the Red Star. Kyra has grown up as something of an oddity, in her way, with a penchant for climbing and trying to be increasingly flexible for no apparent reason. She spends most of her free time in the ocean, the rest of it in trees, and usually with some friends she's known since she was younger.

For the past few turns, she's been considering what she wants to do with her life, however, as many young Pernese tend to, and has started training with people at the Weyr to hopefully become a hunter some day. At least, as she puts it, she'll be able to hunt if she needs to, even if she doesn't take it on as a job. Fishing is another hobby she enjoys quite a bit and it's not uncommon for poor Kadesh to come home to a large fish planted neatly in the kitchen sink, waiting to be dealt with. Kyra's relationship with her younger brother is amiable, considering they don't see eachother very often, with her brother off in Igen Weyr most of the time doing his own work. She gets along well with Zelda, her half-sister, and will usually drag her out for fishing when she comes to visit Half Moon, while she and Keldan, the two closest in age, can sometimes be found together, though Keldan tends to be decidedly more sedate than his sister.

Recent History

After spending some time at Xanadu Weyr for Search, Kyra broke her leg while trying to go hunting in the woods and came home before the Hatching. Since then, she was forced to get used to more sedate hobbies. She's healed up now and back to fishing, but is still a little disappointed at having to go home early. She's also running around a lot more, literally and figuratively, travelling wherever she can get a dragon to go. Sometimes it's to visit people, sometimes it's just to see what she can see. Whatever the case, she seems to be enjoying it.

After the recent earthquake at Half Moon Bay, she was unharmed, but did her best to help people get to the infirmary. The Weyr has since recovered and Kyra was Searched yet again; this time, she left the Sands with Loyth, a lovely blue with a, um, particular personality. After a lot of consideration, especially seeing as she does plan to continue hunting - as a hobby if not a career - she decided to join the Search and Rescue wing, figuring they would be most likely to put her in a position to enjoy a certain wildness and freedom amidst the strict regulations required for disaster relief. She's uncertain if she will stay with S&R, but for now it's a new adventure.


Loyth

Extremely lithe and sleek, this blue dragon has an extremely pale blue hide, more the color of fine crystallized ice than a proper shade. From his finely crafted head with its angled features, down to his narrowed shoulders and tempered forearms, that icy hue is only faintly speckled with darker motes of powdery blue. Splendid curves form, creating the arches of his ridges as they march along, following the length of his back to the sinuous whipping end of his tail. His build stays slender, from those slender shoulders and back through to rounded haunches wiry with muscle, clearly defined and delineated against the strong boning of his legs and elegantly wrought paws. Tipped talons of nearly glinting aquamarine adorn his feet, wickedly sharp and more than the mere half crescents most dragons display, curving round past neat semi circles and ending in dangerous points. Frothy wingsails of that same crystalline blue are stretched between darker limned wingspars, leaving the sails looking barely more substantial than cloud vapor as they move from his leading edges to his ailerons.
