Inanna

"The eyes are like a mirror for a soul. As for me, my eyes show you the truth since I see what you cannot see because you cannot see over the horizon."

0 · 130 views · located in Hainius

a character in “Marked: For Better or for Worse”, originally authored by Akantha, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Name Inanna [Pronounced - En-nah]

Breed Scaled Horse

Gender Female

Marking The Mark looks like a bunch of lines but to an objective point of view, it could resemble several things.You would have thought of the moon or a crescent but then it starts to resemble the sun. Truthfully, the symbolism behind it would be that it means ascendance. The downward waves mark the upward thrust while the circle is in fact, the sun or the full moon. This points out the ascendance into the universe above. The differently sized circled coming from the right to left into the sun mean the different cycles of life. The growing period and etc.


Personality Inanna is classy, petite and very cheerful on a usual day. This dragon is calm and mature with a sense of a playful spirit. She likes to play tricks on others but she still knows her limit. However no matter how mature she can be, Inanna is still somewhat insecure and childish on the inside. She can feel down when insulted and also angered. When provoked by something that is certainly intolerable, Inanna becomes visibly enraged. Her mood will be ruined for the rest of the day and no one will enjoy being around her. Although with success, if she's attached enough, its possible for her to calm down enough to act sensible. When she does get in this foul mood, she also becomes stubborn and snappy. Inanna is not to be messed with even for a small dragon like herself. Although, even for all the bad days the good days make up for it. Her kind nature and caring attention to well appreciated most of the time.

Egg Appearance The egg is dark blue with swirls of gray in the shell, however the dark blue, almost black, splotch on half the egg is peculiar in itself. However the surface of the egg is soft and seems almost to have a light sheen of fur. The surface also reflects light a lot more for this reason, making it seem metallic.

Hatchling Appearance With wide eyes, and an small innocent appearance. Her feathery soft scales and ruff are fluffy and short trimmed. She resembles a puppy in consideration of size and shape. With long legs, larger feet, and a head with wider eyes. Though the body is lean and lithe it's still small.
Image

Adult Appearance Her adult appearance is much more mature and adult-like. None of the previous innocence is there yet some features remain like her large eyes and long legs. More spikes have grown along her spine and her wings are covered completely in feathers.The mane is like a lions around her face and the way she carries her is almost like a purebred horse.

Inanna's tail brushed the soft inner layer of her shell. Her eyes were firmly closed and she had curled herself into a tight ball, almost sleeping in the dark space. Her thoughts wandered and for however long she had been inside the egg, the thoughts hadn't been completely active. They were just there; as if they had no real purpose but to keep her mind awake. The little hatchling stirred doing so every few times to make sure that none of her muscles ached from not moving although sometimes the hatchling went days without a movement. The rough grumbling voice of the great dragon reverberated through her shell, ceasing her stirrings and causing her attention to rise to the occasion. After all, the words spoken were directed at somebody other than the other beings outside her shell, the other hatchlings. She knew there were others because sometimes there was the sound of scratching or claws tapping of the side of a thin wall, which was the same sound that she could make herself. Inanna listened; the soft voice of a woman with confidence spoke and then quieted as if she had moved further away. More voices came soon, the second being a male whose voice seemed out of place considering the strength in the great dragons, and the females. Inanna stretched in her egg, not very far given the space, and pressed her cheek against the shell. Had the time come for her to hatch?

Inanna listened carefully, concentrated on the muffled voices. Her claws clicked over the shell quietly. The voices murmured softly then rose in crescendo as she sensed there approach into the cave. She shifted around to press her ear to the weak spot int he shell. She had found this spot many times before to hear the outside world. The little dragon tuned in, "Um.... Guess it's just one big dragon? Hi, Mr. Dragon, sir....." The boyish voice chimed. It was preceded by the rumbling voice of the greater dragon. "The last Marked have arrived. It is time for the hatching!"

The hatchling let out a small chirp of excitement. The time had come for her to meet the bonded. How long had she waited for this moment? Years, days? The time spent waiting felt endless but after so long it felt good to finally be getting her wish settled. Inanna pressed her nose to the soft part of the shell and carefully pushed hard enough to get some leverage. Her back legs pushed against the other side of the shell increasing the force. Crack! The eggshell split and she fell through with a light thump.

Inanna rested on the ground taking in the bright lights and blurry figures. She frowned and growled moving a dewy, scaly paw over her eyes. The sunlight that filtered into the cave burned but she figured it would become tolerable with time. She steadily got her feet under her body and blinked away the blur. The twelve figures startled her but she proudly raised her head and looked to the great dragon. "Hello." She mumbled, getting used to the feel of language. The hatchling turned to peer at the other hatchlings curiously, in a hurry to see her bonded but yet also trying to save face and stay elegant. Inanna, getting enough of seeing the other hatchlings get together with their bonded, stepped towards the two-legged female.

She was even more beautiful now that Inanna could match a voice to a face. The woman with confidence. It could only be her. She side-stepped the other twolegs and stopped in front of the female. Seeing her now, the two-toned hair and gorgeous blue eyes Inanna felt that the decision was right. She could see that they were almost similar. "You." Her voice scratched, lowly pitched. Inanna swallowed trying to get her voice to cooperate. She peered over at the other twolegs, scanning to make sure her gut feeling was completely correct before squaring off against the woman. "Yes, I want you. Tell me a name and what are you?" She sat back on her haunches and curled her tail around her legs, mimicking the greater dragon.

The hero watched with slight amusement as the tiny blue form broke from its egg and waddled toward her, like a newly born puppy. The hatchling acted with an assumed dignity - its head held high and its voice pointed and direct - that made it absolutely comical. Even though it was freshly born into the world, it still tried to act just like an adult dragon, with all the posing and pride that entailed. While it might have been amusing enough seeing a baby dragon flopping back and forth like a cuddly young kitten, the fact that it tried to act with an age and a majesty it did not possess was much more absurd. Aquaea couldn't help but grin, something she didn't recall doing for quite some time.

"So... you're my Bonded..." She murmured, chuckling. She took her time to answer the hatchling's questions, testing its patience for future reference. "Well, you're interesting, at least. I am Aquaea Hayashimizu, Rawsain and manipulator of water. And what is the name of my rather demanding and honorable partner?" She looked down with a cold, analytical eye. If her research hadn't failed her, then this Dragon was probably a Scaled Horse. So, she was rider of the fastest of dragons, huh... She couldn't really complain in that department, she supposed.

Faquel grinned along with Aquaea when the tiny blue shape broke free from it's egg, though his smile lessened somewhat when it made it's way to Aquaea, not him. After freeing itself, it walked towards her with such pride and dignity that Faquel had to blow bubbles in order to keep the chuckles amassing within him from bursting forth. He couldn't help admiring the small dragon's personality, even if it was about a few feet tall.

"You" A femenine voice, scratched and lowly pitched, escaped from the small creature, though Faquel had guessed it was a scaled horse from her sleek shape. The scaled horse peered around the room for a moment, running her eyes over the other Marked before turning her attention back to Aquaea. Yes, I want you. Tell me a name and what are you?" After her question, she sat on her haunches and curled her tail around her legs. A near perfect copy of the Great Dragon in the background.

So, Aquaea and her Bonded struck up a conversation, Faquel standing by in a distracted air as he gazed around the room. The other dragons that had hatched had already made their way to other Marked and none of the other eggs have hatched yet. Maybe his bonded was in one of the unhatched eggs, or even one of the hatchlings found that they didn't like who they spoke to and moved on to him. Faquel honestly couldn't tell.

Deep in thought, however, he had neglated to spot the green serpent dragon making a beeline directly towards him until a high pitched "Hi! You fly?" cut through his thoughts. The question was so sudden and so near that Faquel nearly landed on the poor thing as he sprung into the air. Coming down caused his teeth to rattle and jarred his injured wing. Taking in a sharp breath, the Angel glanced around until his eyes rested upon the small serpent dragon at his feet.

The high pitched voice clearly belong to the hatchling before him and announced him as male. He was actually a very interesting looking dragon, with his wedge shaped scales like green glass, creating an interesting sight with the skin underneath. He almost looked slightly transparent, the skeletal structure running through his foot long body giving off a fragile appearance to Faquel. Bright, neon green eyes, rimmed by blue scales, stared up at him, a large grin revealing the hatcling's sharp white teeth. Faquel had never seen a dragon smile before.

"U-Um...yes. I fly." Faquel said uncertainly, still recovering from the sudden appearance. Carefully, he moved his left wing to show the makeshift splint and bandage holding it in place. "But I won't be able to any time soon until this heals. An arrow pierced my muscles."

Inanna watched the woman satisfied with herself although her wings had begun to relax at her sides where they had been folded in previously. The primary feathers brushed the stone floor but she was too busy focusing to mind it. "So... you're my Bonded..." The twoleg murmured, chuckling in some strange way. Inanna shook her head up and down vigorously but realizing the mistake adjusted it to a small nod. "Mhm!"

Excitement fluttered in her curved stomach, making her stand up and smile, tiny fangs lighted from the sunlight at the cave mouth. "We are one." The hatchling bounced, wings fluttering as if she was trying to fly but she swayed and landed on her bottom with a soft thump. Unfazed by this, she moved onto stand since she was too excited to sit anymore. However, sensing that a response should have come by now she looked up at Aquaea curiously. "So.." She used the term the twoleg had used before. The more the twolegged spoke the more she could grasp their language.

"Well, you're interesting, at least. I am Aquaea Hayashimizu, Rawsain and manipulator of water. And what is the name of my rather demanding and honorable partner?" Inanna blinked slowly trying to figure out exactly what she meant by the word 'interesting'. The small dragon looked toward the great dragon then to Najade who was beside her talking to the winged twoleg, confusion darkening her bright blue eyes before she turned to speak again ignoring the first few words. "I am Inanna. Scaled Horse, and my breath is air." She straightened her shoulders and met Aquaea's eyes confidently. Once she felt that the twoleg understood her case she continued on. "Can you show me this manepuulation." The hatchling struggled with the word manipulation but let it drop after another few attempts. The twoleg's name was easier. "Aquaea."

"Don't rush yourself," The hero said with a slight chuckle, amused by the young dragon's attempt to pronounce complicated words right off the bat. "As for my power over water, I don't really see why not, I suppose..." Flicking her wrist, she called forth a small amount of water which hovered in a disc shape around her palm, spinning through the air in a wondrous fashion. After a few moments, it faded back into the air.

"It has many more uses than controlling a bunch of water, but, I digress. I'm not exactly one to brag about my own abilities." She trailed off, glancing down at the young dragon to gauge its - no, her. It seemed the dragon was female - reaction. Judging by the young creature's naivete and curiosity, she was expecting an astounded expression, perhaps a little bit of awe. Well, it was best to establish herself as a figure of power early on, she supposed.

Inanna sulked lightly at Aquaea's comment "Don't rush yourself," The hatchling shrugged and turned her head to watch Najade as the twoleg continued. "As for my power over water, I don't really see why not, I suppose..." Inanna glanced up at the shimmer of liquid. The glittery liquid reflected in the dim lighting and the way it moved way so fluid. Inanna stirred, light green eyes fixed on the water but the moment disappeared as the liquid faded into thin air. The hatchling continued to stare at the same spot with her wide, now dark blue, eyes. How exactly had she had the capacity to do such a thing? Inanna knew that she had powers of her own but yet for the twoleg to have them was strange. Unusual. Then again, this world was as unusual to the her as her shell would have been to the twolegs. "That was cool!" She chirped happily. Her awe for the trick was more than her confusion over it turning her eyes back to light green.

"It has many more uses than controlling a bunch of water, but, I digress. I'm not exactly one to brag about my own abilities." Inanna rolled her eyes as they gradually eased back into blue and raised up on her back haunches to touch her nose to Aquaea's hand. "You should brag. You have skill! I wouldn't choose you if you didn't." She plopped back down onto her front paws, looking up to Aquaea with warmth. Now that she had satisfied herself with the fact that her bonded was a good choice, it was time to express the rather large need to play and get out some steam from sitting in the egg for so long. Also, to meet the other bonded.

She raised her head and proudly turned to the winged twoleg while her gaze rested on the small dragon who stood lower than her. She was a small dragon but this one was even smaller which made Inanna give a toothy grin. She slowly approached, long legs toned and slender. "Hello." She glanced to Najade to give her acknowledgment but her curiosity was in the smaller dragon. Inanna looked up at Faquel and murmured softly, almost regally "Excuse me. I hope I didn't cut in here." The hatchling folded her wings in tighter so that she could stand at her full height and her carefully puffed out her chest. "I'm Inanna. Nice to meet you." The dragon sent Aquaea a proud look, eyes glittering golden for a second before turning back to there regular blue.

"Thanks, but bragging isn't exactly my style. I find that it's rather easy to make enemies, and that's something I don't really feel any particular desire to do, even if I am skilled," The hero said stoically, leaning back against the wall and watching the unusual dragon make her way over to another group around Faquel - it seemed he was quite the curiosity to these beasts, who had lived only so far in tiny worlds of their own where they were the only creatures with wings and powers untold.

The look in Inanna's eyes as she shot a glance at Aquaea told her full well that this was going to be trouble. The little dragon seemed to have quite the ego, and, given that it was a sentient, if childish beast, the hero couldn't exactly chain it up outside in a kennel to teach it a lesson if it started acting up. That was another thing dogs had over dragons - they were easier to control. Aquaea wasn't particularly looking forward to raising a creature with such a dispensation toward and propensity for pride. Dragons didn't get their legendary reputation for being haughty, greedy, self-centered creatures for nothing, she supposed. She just hoped that some experience with the grim, real world outside of the cave would teach Inanna to view the bigger picture rather than trying to imitate the dignity of a centuries-old, and therefore wise, elder. Such dignity was not something she had any right to pretend to, having only just been born into the world.

"Hello." Again, another quiet murmur came from ANOTHER dragon that had decided to approuch Faquel, though his hatchling stood with a sense of pride and a puffed out chest, trying to make herself as large as possible. "Excuse me. I hope I didn't cut in here."

"U-Um...no, your fine. Nice to m-meet you. I'm Faquel." Faquel rubbed the back of his head shyly, becoming slightly unsettled by all the eyes on him. Only a few minutes ago, he had been worried if he would be noticed!

"I'm Inanna. Nice to meet you." Inanna, as her name was, looked incredibly proud of itself, standing as tall as her little body would allow, her feathered and fluffy wings compressed against her body to give off the impression that she was much larger than Inanna actually was.

Though Faquel couldn't help admiring Inanna's pride in herself, Nuraki didn't get the same impress from how she had tensed up and let her ears flatten against her skull. She did reply in a similar manner,"Nice to meet you too. I Nuraki." Inanna's grasp of language was also slightly more developed as well.

Sensing the tension, Faquel scooped up Nuraki in his hands and quickly set her on his left shoulder, patting her head lightly with his finger. "The cave floor is pretty cold, hu? My shoulder is much better to sit on." He gave her a reassuring smile.

"I am Najade!" The Serpent chirped to both the Angel and the little dragon who had approached them. "Najade is a Serpent." After saying this, he paused. Was it good to say he was a Serpent? It was obvious, really.... Wingless, eight legs, snakelike body... All of these were features unique to his breed. What if he offended the feathery two leg and tiny dragon?

After these thoughts ran through his mind, he quickly added, "You can see," to his previous statement, the blue skin on his face turning a slightly deeper shade of blue. His equivalent of blushing. Unlike most dragons, his scales did not hide his skin completely, only made it harder to see clearly. In any case, it was not a very obvious darkening of color, and most people would miss it completely.

When another dragon came over to the group, Najade eyed her with blatant curiosity. "Innana. Nice to meet you, too." Oooh... A feathery dragon.... Without really thinking about what he was doing, the little green hatchling reached out a curious paw to touch the Scaled Horse's wing, curious about how the oddly shaped scales felt.

Faquel lifted Nuraki up and put her on his shoulder. The little dragon felt no alarm in being held in his hands as he transported her to the new perch. She wasn't sure why, it just seemed more right than the other two leg holding her. She looked about from her new vantage point. It was so high up! It was exciting. No wonder Inanna wanted to stand tall! Nuraki saw a blue dragon talking to Larissa. It seemed the first two leg she had talked to was claimed. It seemed like most of the dragons were being quick about choosing. Was she the odd one out? Then again, it seemed like the Serpent hadn't chosen yet either.

"I am Najade!" the serpent said. "Najade is a Serpent." Nuraki bobbed her head in agreement at this. It puzzled her a little why Najade had announced his breed, as it was quite recognizable he was a Serpent. It wasn't like she went around declaring she was a pocket dragon. It seemed obvious to her what breed she was since she was so small. "You can see," the Serpent added after a thought.

Nuraki turned her attention back to Faquel. She crawled onto one of his wings and felt the softness of the feathers. It was nice. She contemplated pulling one out, but decided against this, thinking it would hurt the angel. Instead she climbed back to his shoulder next to his neck. What would a two leg taste like? Curious, she licked his neck. It was warm and a little salty, probably from sweat. She rubbed his skin with her head, deciding he liked how this young two leg smelled. He was kind too. After some consideration she said to the angel, "I am Nuraki. You are Faquel. We are one and you are my bonded." She chirped, birdlike, at the end of her sentence for emphasis.

Inanna watched the reactions of the other dragons, quite chipper about making new friends. However the first reaction she got was a sour expression. The hatchling resisted seeming shocked and lowered her head realizing that her elegance was scaring the little dragon. The angel, Faquel lifted the small one off the ground and onto his shoulder and Inanna frowned.

The other dragon seemed to cheer up once Faquel had her on his shoulder so Inanna perked up. She responded with a grin and a tiny wiggle of joy feeling more secure now that the other little one was satisfied. "Nuraki." She nodded politely. Her gaze flowed This was what a serpent looked like? She scanned over his legs seeing that he had more than she had and also that he had no wings. A pang of guilt pierced her chest and she lowered her head but at his cheeks turning blue she glanced away shyly. "Sorry. I see." Her eyes turned gray, as her emotion of nervous guilt poked at her mind. She could only anticipate flying and hated to wait to try but he had no wings. How would he fly? Inanna shook her head and focused back on the conversation at hand. That is, until Najade touched her wings.

Inanna let out a squeak and danced away, eyes glittering playfully. "Bet you can't again." She ruffled her feathers and smiled.

Najade laughed, a high pitched, childish sound. Green eyes glittering, he stalked towards the Scaled Horse a few steps, then paused, drawing back in a position almost snakelike, and threw himself in that direction, front legs pawing at the other hatchling. There was a tiny nagging at the back of his mind, telling him he was overlooking something important.... But it was easily pushed asides, thoughts of the game at hand much more prominent.

Besides, whatever it was, it could wait, could it not?

Inanna yelped as Najade the serpent threw himself forward, giving her minimal time to duck out of the way. She scrambled to get away, laughing merrily and pushing the dragon with her feet. She growled, giving a final push and dashed away circling around him playfully. "Nice try!" In her merriment she had forgotten about her audience and the potential childishness she was acting with. The again, all was fun and game and why stop when the going was getting good.

Inanna danced forward and swiped at his feet with a sharp giggle. "Try Harder, Najade." She teased the other dragon.
