Dark Grey and White Rose Mutt Gül Dumani

Gül Dumani

About

When he doesn’t get his way, he can be kind of a perverse dick; at all other times, he’s a clever, humorous wise-cracker with all kinds of creative notions.

His burns don’t come in an easily-digested format, either: he’s good with words and wordplay such that one tends to realize he’s insulted them only some time after the fact. “Hey! He implied my father was a prostitute?!” He can be quite sneaky, that way and others; sneaky with wordplay, sneaky through the shadows, it’s all the same to him.

In times of conflict, he’s all about convoluded schemes, pranking, and carefully-considered revenges. He does not trend towards the truly unkind, but he will sneak and he will spy and especially he will embarrass, if he feels the need to teach someone a lesson or stand up for himself. He’s not too shy about dragging others into his schemes, either. He’s all about a co-conspirator and likes getting to flex his creative mental muscles for a participatory audience. Moreover he likes a good story to tell later, and a story’s always better with friends.

This is rather a nicer experience when he’s in a good mood. He’s not a constant stream of jokes, per se, preferring to play it close to the chest and at the right moment whip out just the sharpest shit. He enjoys other peoples’ laughter almost as much as he enjoys his own cleverness.

Notes

Name: Gül Dumani (GOOL doo MAN ee; Dumani is Turkish for ‘smoke’ and Gül means ‘rose’ for their patterning)

Stats: Strength 5, Speed 1, Endurance 3, Agility 3, Health 6, Intelligence 5

His rosettes grow brighter and darker with some powers.

The shape of the swath of silver drifts around, mainly in that same area across his body, but always slightly moving around on the edges. His size and wing/tail shapes alter density with his level of control over this power and mixed with his others, he is able to maintain visible wings and even fly with them at massive scale unlike most others in his clutch.

He didn’t wait around with the others in his nest, but he did have to do some investigation before figuring out where to go. Because Gül needed to find his one, a particular person… a dragon, really. But that dragon wasn’t here in the proper side for such folk. And Gül had nosed around the entire dome several times trying to find him. Nothing. Not even a whiff.

Hmph.

The dragon’s mother nudged him gently, when he returned again to their hatching nook. I don’t understand, why is he not here?

He is, but I think he’s … having some issues with authority, right now… Dantinath got a little chuckle out of it: her life spent Outside with Misota had lent her quite a bit of unusual experience, and power that wasn’t common among Pernese dragons like her parentage. You could go look for him on the other side of the venue, you might even be able to help him…

That was all Gül needed, and he scampered as well as a newly-hatched dragonet with improbably large smoke wings and a billowing vapor tail might do. Dantinath watched her young child and was joined momentarily by Dymati, who looked rather too pleased with himself about all that…

“So you were actually there too, all along?” Zhaurian laughed, “I can’t even believe… wait, wait,” he eyeballed the dragonet’s shadowy shape blurring around the edges. “I can believe it. You were up by the doorframe, and in that one nook,” the dragon-shaped-dragon laughed about it now, but it was certainly all kinds of heart-pounding while they were racing through the halls trying to avoid detection (failing) and figure out what was going on (sort of succeeding)…

I was there, yesssss, Gül rolled his head around and his big wings flickered with solidity or wafted as a cloud. They were almost 2-dimensional, like smoke trapped between two panes of glass, their edges always moving. I’m not strong enough yet to do much more than hide behind shadows but… I’ll learn and we’ll find ways to sneak around, you bet. If you’d been around when we came out you wouldn’t have had such a fun story to tell, either.

Zhaur glanced over his shoulder, and spotted that slab of meat Wilson, still watching them. He didn’t see Wilson’s smirk.

“It’ll be a long time before any of us have a better story,” Zhaurian chuckled.
