Colt

Image appearance

Standing straight at 6’3” or hunched at 5’11”, Colt––or “Shahar,” as he was once known––is a lean balance between physical strength and physical speed. Blessed with angular facial features and a nice smile in the rare event he decides to show joy, Colt slouches more often than not in a conscious bid to hide his strength until it becomes important to do otherwise. His hair is an unimpressive brown and usually allowed to fly loose, although he will pull it back and tie it up while working. Somewhat rugged and bearing more than his fair share of scars, the Drykas’ physique is one accustomed to danger and hardship.

His eyes, however, are somewhat different than “normal.” They were once flat brown, the color of polished wood, and for the most part they still are––aside from the bright magenta starbursts patterned across his irises. Some are unnerved by the glow, others intrigued; it is a rare sight in the world of Mizahar, a land where the ancient magic of Pathfinding is all but forgotten.

ImageBeyond that, Colt goes out of his way to hide further oddities. His clothing will almost always favor practicality over appearance, lighter in summer and heavier in winter, but almost universal is his preference for long sleeves; no matter what season is upon him, Colt will always go out of his way to make sure that his arms are covered to the wrist. He has many secrets written into his skin, and he keeps those secrets closely guarded.


Tattoos
 
back
Holding little value in this new world, Colt’s windmarks are likewise covered up if he can help it. They stretch over most of his back, beginning at his pelvis and spreading out to his shoulders. The tattoo does not depict anything in particular, though an abstract thinker might imagine a stylized bird or face of some sort. While his habit of keeping secrets close to the chest means that the marks are almost always hidden, an especially travelled observer that manages to catch a glimpse will immediately pick up on the distinct Drykas style and pattern.
Image
 
left wrist
The most treasured of Colt’s marks is much smaller and humbler than either gnosis or windmark. Around his left wrist is a small tattoo, a hefty chunk of which is a bracelet-sized band of simple braided black lines. On the inside of his wrist is the symbol of his family: two hands holding a crowned heart. This is the only tattoo or mark that he does not go out of his way to keep hidden.
Image

Markings
 
Chevas
While it is usually kept hidden by long hair or an upturned collar, Colt’s chevas mark is nevertheless present for a particularly keen observer to spot. It is a delicate, sweeping mark that might be compared to a bird’s wing, or perhaps to grass, or even to an abstract drawing of the wind itself; it draws elements from all three, but is not entirely like any of them. The chevas mark is metallic bronze-green in color, and is unmistakable as anything but a token of marriage.
Image
 
Phylonura
Colt’s gnosis mark is almost always covered up by long sleeves, although in the comfort of privacy he might allow it to be exposed. A crystal clear lake forms above the wrist, surrounded by a wide swathe of grass that becomes a rich gold through summer to winter and a brilliant green during the spring. Over his forearm is the twisting, knotted trunk of the Serenity Tree, kept company by brightly coloured birds which ruffle their feathers, tree frogs with puffed out throats and slender limbs and multi-coloured snakes winding between the roots. High in the tree’s branches a bird builds her nest, where in spring she will raise chicks that will fledge before summer’s end, one of which will revisit the nest each year to raise a family of their own. In the background on the left, a band of coyotes sings to the moon, and on the right, a pride of night lions suns themselves on a hill of rocks. Taking center stage in the tall grass is the burrow of a spearback, a creature that will seldom reveal himself, but every now and then is known to peek out of his den.

Gnosis
Phylonura, Marked

The singularly marked individual is granted the language of Nura and begins to learn to communicate with plants and animals of all sorts. Nura can even cause the witch to actively associate with insects, which are vital forms of life in Caiyha's domain. The witch is granted one biome to look after, and is given often multiple years to hone his or her skills and branch out to invest time and energy in the space she or he protects. The more skills a witch learns and perfects, the more likely he or she will feel the urge to move and resettle, especially when his or her current biome has been in balance for a significantly long period of time. Many witches at this stage can also 'lose' their marks if Caiyha finds them lacking in motivation or determination when it comes to being her guardians of the world.

companions
 
Snow
Image

Snow
female luvanor grassland hunter
two years of age, born winter 514 (assumed)



Snow came to Colt in the summer of 515, appearing after he relinquished Hope’s remaining possessions. She follows him, hunts with him and sleeps with him, and becomes uncomfortable when Colt is out of her sight. Bright, curious and obedient, Snow is Colt's most reliable partner and valued friend.
 
Kyla
Image

Kyla Snowhunt
Drykas woman
20 years of age, born fall 14, 496
10 singing, 10 cooking, 5 riding, 5 storytelling


Kyla Snowhunt is a Drykas, and one of the last living connections Colt has to his home and people. Like him, she was captured by pirates on the western coast of Cyphrus and taken away, with the intended purpose of being sold as slaves to the highest bidder. Upon landing on the shores of Falyndar, Kyla and Colt both managed to escape, along with her young son, Kai. The hardships she has faced have taken their toll on her; while she was once optimistic and kind, Kyla's experience have made her much more bitter and opportunistic. She trusts no one save Colt, realizing that she and her son would undoubtedly be dead without his support, and there is even some warped, distant affection there for the simple fact that he and her son are the only two Drykas she will likely ever meet until they find their way home.
 
Kai
Image

Kai Snowhunt
Drykas boy
6 years of age, born summer 74, 510
10 riding (horse), 10 brawling, 10 animal husbandry


Like his mother, Kai was taken by pirates in the winter of 515. Through sheer luck and tenacity, the two were not separated from each other, and managed to escape with Colt upon arriving in Falyndar. And like his mother, Kai's experience with slavery has not left him unscathed; Kai hates to be touched by anyone but his mother, and will bite and kick anyone who tries. He doesn't like being trapped and he doesn't like being bossed around; both of these will be met with anger and belligerency, and even violence if it doesn't stop. The only exceptions to this are given to animals; Kai has a way with four-legged creatures and is much more tolerant of them than of people. Despite his fear of contact, Kai is still a relatively curious and invested in his own survival. He can even be well-mannered, provided someone is deemed worthy of it. He yearns for other children to play with, but the difference in experience, culture and language often leaves him annoyed and frustrated with them; in the place of other youth, Kai is quite attached to Snow, and isn't above seeking out Colt himself for interaction if he's feeling particularly lonely.
 
Tsaria
Image

Tsaria Snowhunt
human girl
1 season of age, born fall 15, 516
(will grow into) 10 riding, 10 animal husbandry, 5 cooking, 5 storytelling

Between herself and her family, Tsaria is undoubtedly the most outgoing of the Snowhunts. She loves attention from family or strangers, and if she doesn’t get any she is more than happy to go wandering for it––much to the dismay of her mother. It is Kai more often than not who ends up chasing her down, so it is no wonder that she seeks his company more than anyone’s. Bold and courageous, Tsaria assumes that everyone and everything she meets is a playmate that means her no harm; she displays equal bravery in the face of Snow, of strangers and even animals of burden ten times her size.
