All That Glitters Isn't Gold Pyrith

Dragon Description

As raw ore roughly hewn from the ground, the brassy form of this regal lady seems somehow riddled with impurities. She's massive in size, both longer than most and bulky with hardened muscle as well. Her head is a large, rugged square of metal. Pyrite glitter marks the heavy jowls and traces the ridges over sharp, knowing eyes. It hangs on the proud dark gold column of her neck arched high above the ground, alert and ready at all times. Rough jagged ridges tumble down her neck and spill onto the broad plateau of her back. Powerful pyrite muscles ripple beneath the dark gold that paints her full deep chest, tight high abdomen and the sleek curve of her flanks. Wicked brassy talons strike the ground, a perfect match in color the bullwhip lash of her tail. A brilliant expanse of wingsail glitters in the sun with all the radiant draw of fool's gold. Her copper tones intertwine with bronze and brass tracing square crystalline figures in the gauzy spread. Only on their underside can one see any nuggets of true, bright gold.+++ Egg Name and Description

Straps Description

About Pyrith's shoulders are settled a supple set of leather straps in a warm amber hue. The buckles are shine brightly and stand out against the leather. The saddle is slightly darker and is trimmed in copper laces. On the left side of the saddle someone has carefully tacked a small brass plate inscribed with:
~* Nadina and Pyrith safe travels through the skies and between.*~

Egg Name and Description

The Motherlode Egg

The milky white quartz egg erupts from an isolated nest of black sand as though extruded by the long dormant volcano below. By far the largest in the clutch, the coarse grainy surface sparkles where diamond specks of clear crystal strike the dim light. In shape it's roughly ovoid, slightly wider then long and with a gentle slope at one apex. On it, nature's artwork ropes over, around and even into the stone as a glittering lacework of gold ore, lustrous and pure even while unrefined. The fine threads web over the whole surface in widths from whisker slim to large ribbons. Cutting directly across and into the very heart is a single massive vein, leading straight to the mother lode below.

Hatching Message

The Motherlode Egg shifts this way and that upon it's perch, the sand around it trembling and cascading downward in slithering waves. As the hatchling within begins pushing against the shells confines from the inside, pieces of rough shell fall downward leaving gaps where the shadowed motions of the hatchling within can be seen. With one last hearty push the shell dissolves around the new hatchling sending her rolling from the remains of her egg to land on her back before the line of girls waiting her arrival.

Hatchling Name and Description

All That Glitters Isn't Gold Hatchling

As raw ore roughly hewn from the ground, the brassy form of this regal lady seems somehow riddled with impurities. She's massive in size, both longer than most and bulky with hardened muscle as well. Her head is a large, rugged square of metal. Pyrite glitter marks the heavy jowls and traces the ridges over sharp, knowing eyes. It hangs on the proud dark gold column of her neck arched high above the ground, alert and ready at all times. Rough jagged ridges tumble down her neck and spill onto the broad plateau of her back. Powerful pyrite muscles ripple beneath the dark gold that paints her full deep chest, tight high abdomen and the sleek curve of her flanks. Wicked brassy talons strike the ground, a perfect match in color the bullwhip lash of her tail. A brilliant expanse of wingsail glitters in the sun with all the radiant draw of fool's gold. Her copper tones intertwine with bronze and brass tracing square crystalline figures in the gauzy spread. Only on their underside can one see any nuggets of true, bright gold.

Impression Message

The unnerving stress and fear from the little queen's hatching is combining with the heat of the sands to leave you feeling a tad ill and dizzy. Into this comes a steamy sultry touch, followed by a much bolder and eager push. « Nadina? » A smoky alto voice calls, and then again more forcefully. « Nadina!» Heard not by the ears, but with the mind, the call is quickly answered by a strange double vision. Not only are you looking at the brassy young gold, but somehow you see yourself as well. You look tired and sweaty but oh so perfect, and you feel so much more complete, even if your wing is sore. That is when you know the vision is not yours but hers. « Pyrith. » She answers before you can even think the question. « I am Pyrith. And I'm famished! » The tone is demanding, expectant and joyfully yours alone.

Mindvoice Name and Description

Gunpowder and Gold

Pyrith's mind voice is a dusty, smoky alto that's strong in tone with a hint of sultry to it. Her thoughts are open and forthright as it would not even occur to hide them from you for any reason.

Inspiration

The theme for the clutch eggs was elements from the periodic table and obviously, your egg was gold, abbreviated as Au on the table for the Latin name aurum. The inspiration for the desc was this picture http://www.flickr.com/photos/7202153@N03/2331823527/. The hatchling theme was things which mimic other things, and as such she is based on fool’s gold. Her personality was a conglomeration of traits from all the Wild West heroines you requested.
All were done by Trouble. I hope she is what you wanted but as always, she is now yours and you should play her how you wish.

Personality (RP Tips)

From the moment of hatching Pyrith is fearless and adventurous, almost to the point of recklessness. She is nearly always the first to try anything new and pushes every boundary or limit set on her, be it by yourself, your leaders, or her own physical ability. She has a deep seated restlessness and she nearly constantly seeks to see 'just over the next mountain'. Though she is not naturally cruel or even unkind, she is also not overly concerned with others and their concepts of 'good' or 'right'. This is as likely to lead you two into trouble as her bold nature does. Do not expect much interest in the classroom or philosophy from Pyrith. She'll learn, but only what's necessary to be out and about Pern. Nor is she a particularly deep thinker. But she is eager and daring and, in her own way, quite clever about figuring out plans and problems.

As an adult, Pyrith's driving ambition is to fight thread just as her smaller sisters do. She will fuss endlessly about not being able to flame like the greens and must be constantly watched near the firestone. But her own natural abilities make her a great asset to the queen's wing, for she has an uncanny knowledge of when and where thread will slip through the fighting wings above. Also with her large size, she's invaluable in the catching and controlled decent of any injured falling dragon. She loves to brag of her exploits, both in fighting thread and exploring Pern and often exaggerates adventures all out of proportion.
When it comes to mating flights, Pyrith is capricious with her favors, rarely accepting the same mate more than once in a row. She's attracted to power and were she human, one would say she loved the bad boys. Instead she seeks the strongest, largest and most ruthless suitors. And though she loves you dearly, she will mate with whom she wants regardless of your feelings towards his rider. On the sands, she is attentive to the eggs but not overly motherly. She's less broody than normal and more than happy to see they impress at the end.
