Tikaeth

Bonded to Fawzia Tengris

About

A hobby of Tikaeth’s early life was to mess with her bond, and that has never entirely gone away. The red comes across as kind of a dick, given that her mode of letting people know she likes them is somewhat akin to verbal hair-pulling, and then laughing at the resulting fuss. She’s very casual with other people’s emotions in pursuit of humour or a good time, although her own run deep and she does not take well to people messing with her the same way she messes with them.

Thankfully (??), her affections are hard to win. She’s been jaded about other people and the state of the world pretty much since she was born. When the Nidus she and Fawzia called their home descended into mists, apparently lost to the wider universe, rather than (or maybe alongside) existential dread she more or less went, “yeah, this might as well happen”. If she is surprised by anything she does her best not to show it, and if she actually genuinely likes more than about five people in the whole wide universe, she definitely doesn’t show it.

She does adore her bond, though. Where there are pairs to whom the dragon-companion bond seems to faciliate a generic sort of love, Tikaeth specifically and intensely adores her rider. Fawzia is complex, messy, resilient and passionate, and Tikaeth has never tired of deepening their bond. She’s deeply protective of her person, too, and has more than once chased off suitors who she was certain did not bear the appropriate amount of respect for Fawzia that they should. One night stands are fine, whatever, but if someone messes with her bond’s heart, they better be ready to feel the heat.

For all her nasty chaotic tendencies and flippancy with the feelings of most people, she’s no laze-about cynic or naysayer. She’s an incredibly high-energy dragoness, who just about went insane with the lack of a wider world to get out into. Her intense need for new stimulus, and her tendency to get bored easily, caused a great deal of trouble for both her and Fawzia before they found healthier outlets for it, but for all that she’s one of the handful of dragons who immediately headed up the creation of the Exploration Ala when the mists receeded. She intends to spend every waking hour of the next year going new places, seeing new things, and dragging Fawzia along with her for the ride.

Wants

(Excerpt from the hatching, written by Naeodin)

The red looked up at Fawzia with the expectations of a child expecting someone else to make the world a better place.

Fawzia was very, very scared.

And then the red snorted and said simply. “Naw, I’m just playing with you.”
