Xanath

Nothing in the shadows or the night sky? Look again, harder this time. You still would never see.

0 · 191 views · located in Hainius

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

Description

Name: Xanath

Breed: Chaotic Wraith

Gender: Male

Hatchling Appearance:
Xanath is a serpentine creature more so then the majority of Chaotic Wraiths. His tail is whip-like, long and thin. The same goes for his general body shape, elongated but not so lacking in substance. He can twist and turn with all the poise and agility of a cat. His limbs are not as spindly as could be expected from his general body shape, with powerful hind quarters. His forelegs are less strengthened but themselves making up for in agility and speed what they fall short in comparative strength. His wings are nothing to sniff at, the extend elegantly and viciously jagged a fair distance from his trunk. The joints malleable and muscles precise, the signs of a skilled flyer. A triangular, slightly more then stubby head mounted on a rather long, prehensile neck. Bright, clean scales glint a void-like black. Even light seems to cower around the rather elegantly cruel looking creature. However, his monotone black is not completely prevalent. The dark grey of his marking, differing only slightly from his natural colouration, forms the undulation of a helix. A pair of twining streaks down the his right brow and cheek bone.

Egg Appearance:
Xanath's egg was as impressive as he was. It was a glittering obsidian black other then the grey, dull strips that extended from roughly halfway down to the lower curve.

Personality:
First impression of Xanath is that he is snappy, willing to make small offensive actions to scare any company off. Mostly this is reserved to two-legs but with certain dragons he will attempt the same deviation. If the first warning fails then Xanath retreats into quiet smoldering which, if pressed by the wrong characters could erupt into petty violence. Yet Xanath is not mindlessly aggressive, facing opposition with intelligence and courage. He indulges himself in measured risks, challenging himself. There is no denying that he does prefer combat over other means of solving disputes. He glares at pretty much everything and anyone around, regardless of his true mood. He keeps his feelings and emotions within. With anger being one of the few he exhibits outwardly. Even to those he allows to penetrate his shell and evasive tactics see very little of his true mood. Although these people do get a glimpse of his more friendly side, plus the insurance of his loyalty in return for theirs. If anyone is to actually gain this closeness they must mean his judgement and prove themselves worthy. Sometimes this is even dispensed by Xanath himself, with true intentions hidden.

Breath Weapon:
Xanath can summon electricity in the form of balls and sheets of lightning, he himself can absorb this lighting and act as a capacitor for a short amount of time. He has the slight ability to manipulate the electricity around him, controlling where it arcs within a small distance.

Bonded:

So begins...

The twoleg knelt and Solaris felt a rush of relief go through him, now he didn't feel so small and insignificant. “Hello there.” said the little twoleg, and his mouth curved up and his whole face looked happy. Solaris tried to copy his face, and smirked a dragon smirk. He hoped that looked right.
Before he could say anything he both sensed, and saw movement close by him in the corner of his eye. He turned around and spotted another dragon, dark as anything, observing them. There was something in the way he carried himself that unsettled Solaris and made him become defensive. He pried his still-not-yet-dry wings from his sides and spread them out at their full width and height, making him appear much more larger than he actually was. He made no other move, and just stared back at the other dragon. He really wanted to reply to the nice twoleg, but he was too interested in what the other dragon might do. In fact, now he was becoming less wary and more excited, and he started to move his tail back and forth slowly. What had started out as a defensive instinct was now more of a game to Solaris. He didn't know whether to run around or tackle the other dragon in a playful wrestling way.

Songrose watched curiously as the dragons all found some person that they wanted to talk to. It seemed a little odd, but they all seemed to know who they were bonded with. She tilted her head curiously to one side as two went to the werewolf that had led her there. She watched, about to back away a step before it became a fight, but calmed when it seemed like he was being playful. It almost reminded her of a cat trying to play. She grinned and looked back to the werewolf; she felt a little bad that she hadn't gotten his name, but he hadn't offered, and hadn't asked for hers.

Still, she turned her attention to him, and the two dragon nearby. "...Seems like...you're kinda...popular...with the dragons..." she offered, hesitantly. She wouldn't be able to stand it if she had no one to talk to. Even at home, she talked with the animals there, even though they couldn't respond. Or, perhaps, because they couldn't respond. Either way, she felt uncomfortable trying to force conversation, but even more so when she couldn't hear all of the other conversations in the room.

Ryuu's attention went quickly from his scattered thoughts and back to the little yellow dragon as he felt it stiffen, following its gaze and seeing the larger, deeply black colored hatchling. Making a mildly amused sound in his throat, he watched its half aggressive, half playful movements. This could be.... Entertaining.

"...Seems like...you're kinda...popular...with the dragons..." Ryuu glanced at his traveling companion with a grin. "Guess so." He really wanted to ask if her hesitant speech was genetic or just out of nervousness, but wasn't in the mood to start a fight or make someone cry. A question for later, perhaps, when he felt like causing trouble. He was also a bit amused that the hatchlings seemed to like him; he wasn't known for being good with animals. Oh, well, no use pondering it. It was how it was, and that's as complicated as life needed to be. His focus went to the hatchlings again.

As the black one lunged forward, Ryuu grinned and watched its maneuvers. A strong little dragon indeed. Settling back into a more relaxed position, he surveyed the young dragon's antics with quiet amusement and interest.

The other dragon wanted to play too! He had first jumped past Solaris, and then had sprung off a rock and was now standing very close to him. He was pumping with energy and excitedly dropped his top half low to the ground and moved his tail back and forth rhythmically and let out a little sound, crossed between a growl and a chirp. Solaris tilted his head and lifted his right paw in the air and batted out in front of him, his smaller arms not reaching very far towards the other dragon, but he didn't want to actually swat Xanath. He was aware of all the other commotion around him made by other two legs and the dragons, but he tried to zone them out. All thoughts of bonding were tossed to the back of his mind, but his body didn't forget. While he was posed like such with his mind thinking 'PlayPlayPlayPlay', he had a small itch to find his Bonded, and itches can only be ignored for a short while. Hopefully it was a long enough short time for him to keep having this little bit of fun. Solaris blinked his yellow-green eyes and batted out at Xanath again, for good measure, still only reaching a small distance in front of himself.

Xanath wasn't impressed by the other's half-hearted attempts. Dodging around the playful swipes with excess movement, circling his opponent. He let out a slight snarl, although it wasn't particularly aggressive. He struck back, darting forward and attempting to nip the Cloudskimmer before vaulting over him. again on the other side with less of a struggle to circle back. This was already boring the energetic Chaos Wraith and he upped the stakes. With a low crouch he shuffled his balance, whipping his tail to and fro. He tensed his leg muscles, preparing to bound. Yellow eyes watching any movements from the yellow dragon. Moments later he released himself, dashing forward and into the other. He closed for a violent yet playful wrestle careful to account for any movements from Solaris. Xanath was not quite aware that others were as willing to put so much effort into the mock fight as he was. Naturally he avoided his claws and teeth to scrape against the chitinous scales but he spared no expense with the amount of force he used. The wiry black creature attempted to use all the strength within his limbs and serpentine body to bully the other onto the ground and take victory on top.

Larissa scooped up the dragon carefully, and held Shiya somewhat protectively in her arms loosely so she wouldn't be uncomfortable. She felt rather guilty when she heard a hint of jealousy in Kyren's voice. When Shiya snapped at Kyren, Larissa's voice became very soothing and gentle. "It's alright, Shiya. Kyren is a wonderful person. You can see it in his face if you look closely enough." Her adopted mother had always told her if she looked hard enough, she could always see if someone was good or not. 'Bad people' always had a certain dead look to their eyes, while 'good people' always had a certain light about themselves. "Kyren, look." She nodded to two dragons that where play fighting. "One of them is sure to be your bonded. It doesn't appear that they have chosen anyone quiet yet."
