ImageImage
Age:

19


Gender:

Female


Role:

Hotel desk clerk

ImageImage
Personality:

River is somewhat quiet, but friendly. She doesn't go out of her way to start conversations, but will participate in conversations others start with her. In quiet moments, she can be caught reading or staring off into space (otherwise known as daydreaming). Day to day life consists of work and wandering off to new places. River is fascinated by the island she lives on and takes every chance she can get to explore more and more of it.


Appearance:

River has a thin build with immediately noticeable fair skin, golden blonde hair, and forest green eyes. In more detail, she keeps her nails short and usually applies a light pink or clear polish to them. Makeup is kept very light. Her hair is naturally very wavy (almost curly) and she prefers to keep it that way. Every once in a while she might straighten it for a different look. As for her clothing style, she keeps her look as feminine as possible. On a day-to-day basis, she likes to keep her attire casual with a trendy, girly feel to it. Her closet mostly consists of leggings, trendy sweatpants, jeans, and shorts to be paired with a cute tee, blouse, or tank top to match. Shoes are almost always kept practical. It's either tennis shoes, nice sandals or flip flops, or boots. Colors vary, but her closet says that she prefers blues, greens, and white.

Bio

River grew up on the island with her father, who owns the small hotel she is currently employed at. Though she is only the front desk clerk, she assists her father in making decisions for the hotel when needed. She tries to be as involved as she can with the hotel since that seems to be where her father's entire focus is. This gives her more time on her hands than she knows what to do with, which is what created her desire to explore.

So begins...

Finally it was over. He could finally stop worrying about werewolf territory disputes and evil wizards. Why did the werewolves ask him anyway? Didn't they have a wolf elder council or something? They did last time he dealt with werewolves, but maybe the evil wizard was outside their jurisdiction. Both wizards and werewolves usually keep to themselves.

He silenced the questions and put them in the back of his mind. It was over. He did what he had to do, his infernal geass was satisfied. That's the only reason he could think so many creatures suddenly wanted his attention. It's over, it's over. He repeated in his mind and turned to his map. At least he won't have to hide who he is at his latest stop. The information he had on the place said it was home to a number of fae and mythical creatures. He worried about the fae population though. Despite still having a taste for faerie food and the familiar human longing for life within it, he didn't want to go back. He knows what it costs and can no longer bear the price.

A dragon escorted him to the floating archipelago, and now he stood in the main island's central city. He gave the dragon a gold bracelet for his hoard by way of thanks and officially entered. Long life had its advantages. Then he took a deep breath and walked to the town's inn.

Inside the lobby, a young girl, no woman, sat behind the desk reading a book. She would be considered a child by fae standards, and his too considering he was older than he looked, but she was a human young woman. "Excuse me," he spoke English, but had a strange lilting accent. He just hoped it was understood. "I would like a room for the night, please."

Ofelia had finished her third round of rides for the day and it was time to give the dragons a rest before sending them flying again to carry more passengers on and off the floating island. So she went about her normal business. She refreshed the water supply for her dragons, checked on her small dragon eggs, and fed the new hatch-lings that had emerged just two days before.

Once she was finished these chores she moved on to her next task, a couple had asked her to make reservations at the hotel for them, as they would be traveling back to the island in a few days and wanted to be sure they would be able to get a room. So she set off from the ranch into town, stopping by the general goods store and picking up a few groceries. She paid and carried her single bag out with her to the short walk to the hotel. Once she arrived she wiped her feet on the man and entered the building. It wasnt long before she realized that River was already speaking to a customer. Ofelia stepped up to the counter next to the man River was assisting and greeted River politely.

Tate twisted and untwisted the straps of the knapsack over his broad shoulders while he waited for the girl to respond. He wondered if she understood him and started to repeat himself, but she looked up and smiled at him before he could speak. He smiled back and nodded to her question. "Yes, it's just me."

Someone stepped beside him and he flinched away a step. The pale skin and pointed ears, made him fear some of his fae opponents caught up to him. After a moment, he realized she was an elf not a faerie. He took a deep breath, collecting his wits again, and gave her a smile too. "Good day, miss." He wasn't comfortable saying any more yet, so he turned back to the clerk.

Ofelia greeted the man who seemed started by her presence. "Good afternoon, Sir." She said with a small bow. She wondered if she might have accidentally snuck up on the man, causing him to startle when he saw her. Though she also thought that, perhaps, he had been deep in thought and simply did not realize that she had entered the building. She thought to herself that the man had a strange accent, though she didnt think too much of it, as many of her customers were from far away lands and many had accents.


Ofelia nodded when River spoke to her. "Take your time, I'm not in any hurry! I have got at least another hour before i need to be back at the boarding station to ready the dragons for flight" She said quickly. She didnt want River to think she had to rush anything. Ofelia pulled out a small box of chocolates that she had gotten from the confectionery and opened it up. There were about twelve different kinds of chocolate truffles inside. Ofelia looked them over for a few seconds and then picked up a white chocolate truffle in the shape of a sea shell and popped it in her mouth, only to quickly regret her decision. She had unknowingly picked a truffle filled with coconut, a flavor she hated, and her face definitely showed her disgust.

The clerk giggled at his expense causing a pink flush to bloom under his tan, but he quickly hid it by pretending his worn brown boots were so much more interesting than anything else going on around him. As he traced the cracks, and scuffs in the leather with his eyes, he noted that he should probably get new ones while in town. Then he'll need a day or two to break them in. No way would he walk miles in brand new boots.

Even though he wasn't looking, he heard what she said, and looked up again. He raised his eyebrows, and said, "A dragon trainer? You don't meet those every day." He studied her while she was eating chocolate. She ate a white shell one and made a face. He gave a half-laugh of his own, but looked away again.

The clerk asked him how many nights he needed the room. He normally didn't stay long in one place because of his situation, but he was able to answer without further problems. "Four nights." Even though he didn't know how long he would be free of the demands of his suspected geass, he did know he needed to resupply and that would take some time.

Ofelia waited until river had finished up with the foreign man's needs and then reserved her customers a room for the requested dates. She said thank you and bowed to both river and the man she had just met and bid them farewell. She then began her rather long walk back to he dragon ranch to tend to the small dragons and hatchlings​.

When Ofelia arrived in the dragon nursery she found that one of the young dragons had completely destroyed her table and chairs. She sighed deeply and scooped the culprit up. " I guess it's time for you to join the adolescents..You little trouble maker!" Ofelia chuckled slightly at the goat sized dragon she was carrying. She took him out to the pasture he kept the adolescent dragons in, and after checking for aggressive behavior from any of them, she shut the gate and began walking the property line between her farm and the neighboring families land. " I suppose I will have to order a new set of chairs and a table soon.." she shook her head.

Ofelia continued to walk the property line, looking for any dragons that might have crossed into her neighbor's land, as it had happened before and was not a pleasant deal.

Kel continued to play fetch with Cire, but the hot sun had a way leeching the energy out of him. He noticed a young woman running to the lake front and then perch herself on one of the larger rocks near the shore and look out over the lake. It was then that he realized that, in his rush to get to the lake, he forgot to bring a towel. It was no big deal, though, it was hot enough that he could air-dry without needing a towel.

After playing for about an hour, Cire brought back the wooden ball one last time before they climbed out onto the dock and walked back to the shore. As they got onto dry land, Cire shook himself dry, flinging water all over Kel and he looked like a giant puff ball after doing so.

"Hey you, I didn't bring a towel you know." Kel scolded. Cire just looked up at him with a big grin and shrugged. "You crazy tiger. I guess it's time to dry out, go find a good spot." And with that Cire went and curled up at the base of a small maple tree in the shade. It was still warm enough to dry out from the heat, but not in direct sun light so Kel wouldn't get sunburned, he burned easily. Kel went over and laid down next to Cire using the small tiger as a pillow. Cire began to purr and Kel smiled. This was the life, so much better than what he had left behind. He had few cares and nothing to worry about and he was finally happy. He turned to look at the girl sitting on the rock, she looked exhausted, as though she had been working all day. He wished he had that problem, but the tavern wasn't very busy the last few days. It was mostly adventurers that came into his bar on their way to explore the shrines and caves of the outer islands, but the summer time was more the weather for monster hunting and exploring the other lakes of the islands. This time of year he usually only got the people who wanted to unwind after a hard day of work, those that had heard about his specialty brews or just the occasional tourist visiting the lake that noticed the tavern just up the path. He glanced back up at the tavern to see if he was missing any customers and he wasn't. He had left a sign saying he'd be back at dusk for the evening customers. He relaxed and closed his eyes resting against Cire's tummy as the tiger continued to purr.

{{{Okay We are going to skip ahead about three weeks in story to the day before the summer festival, to get some things moving along! So as of this post it is now the day before the summer festival. Thanks - Fauna}}}

Ofelia

Ofelia was hard at work making sure her song for the summer festival was perfect, she had been practicing the song say and night in between her other duties. Today was a huge day for her business as he offered more trips to the island than she usually did, since her business was not open on the actual day of the festival so that she could enjoy the festivities. Ofelia didnt find herself quite as lonely as she usually did because in the past weeks she would often chit chat with Nasir when she brought dragons for Agis to play with. Even the friendly chit chat was an improvement in social skills for her, she started chit chatting with her customers more and seemed to be doing business better now that she was getting used to speaking in front of people, so when the mayors son came and asked her to sing at the festival before the fireworks, Ofelia felt she might actually be able to do it. So she had been practicing every day since.





Rowan


It was finally the day before the festival and Rowan was busier than ever, he had places to run, people to see, and plans to finalize and check over before the day was done. Luckily there hadnt been any snares in planning yet and most of his check ins went smoothly. The cafe was providing hot drinks and sweets, the tavern was providing alcoholic beverages for the adults attending, and the dragon girl had agreed to sing a the ceremony before the fireworks were to start. The local fire station would be on hand to control any accidents as well. The various shops around the island agree to open shops for a short time where they offered discounted prices for their wares, and he had people arriving in the morning to set up games and prizes that the tourists would absolutely love. Rowan decided it was about time for a break around four in the evening and went over to papoa lake to do some fishing.
