Name: Naomi Elliot (Goes by Elliot) 
 
 
 
Age: 15 
 
 
 
Looks: She is small for her age standing at 4'10".  She is lithe, lightly built, and strong, but also seems underweight.  She has very narrow shoulder and barely any curves making her look childish almost.  She has very light muscle tone.  Her face is narrow too and she has very small facial features, her nose is button like her ears are small and her jaw is rather delicate. 
Elliot has dark red-brown that's curly and is in a short cut that hangs over her ears and eyes a bit.  She has thin eye lashes and thin eyebrows that are covered by her hair. 
Her eyes are a hazely-gray with barely there flecks of silver.  Her eyes have a gradient of color, some parts are darker some are lighter making it took like her pupil is in waves. 
Elliot's skin has a warm light golden glow.  It's rather pale skin but has a touch of tan to it.  She has many scars on her arms, wrists, ankles, legs...pretty much everywhere, but they are mostly very thin scars and pale ones that can't seen unless hit with the right light, the most noticeable ones are on her ankles and wrists. 
 
 
 
Bio: Elliot, born Naomi Heather Elliot was started off young in poaching.  Her father was a poacher and as soon as she could walk taught her how to sneak around and forced her into training.  When she turned 5 he had her start sneaking into territory and stealing dragons eggs from nests, which involved steep climbs and resulted in many falls for the young Naomi.  If she failed to bring back her quota in eggs she suffered harsh punishment from physical beating, to being neglected and ignored to many othe rthings. 
Naomi's mother left her father when Naomi was 8 with her baby brother who was just born.  Her mother left because she was tired of Naomi's father's controlling habits and she thought Naomi was turning into too much of her father because the young girl often had violent outbursts and didn't control her self well. 
After Naomi's mother left the little girl went into a deep depression and would lock herself away for hours everyday only coming out when her father threatened her or dragged her out to do a job.  Naomi semi-recovered around the age of 12 and started to go by Elliot because her mother would call her Naomi and she didn't want to be reminded of her.   
At 12 Elliot's father made a deal with another poacher and sold his daughter off as an apprentice.  Elliot's behavior issues got worse, her violent behaviors became much worse because she wanted to seem tough and that’s he couldn't get hurt.  She hates her 'teacher'/'boss' and is looking forward to getting out of her apprenticeship and becoming a full on poacher or move on in life. 
Poaching is techniquely illegal in the human land, but that's just writing on paper, as long as poacher keep their training secret and don't get caught by a Dragon their left alone by the humans.  Some government officials even get profits off of the poaching business. 
 
 
Job:  Apprentice Poacher

((Thats okay Dragon, it's taken me forever too :)  ))
 
Name: Asah (last name unknown)
 
Age: 19
 
Gender: Male
 
Appearance: He is skinny for his age, and tall (about 6'4) making for a gangly look. As if he had just hit his growth spurt, his legs are often shaky, and he is very clumsy. Asah has scars up and down his back, and one on his right temple. His face has a slightly carved in look from malnutrition making his chin stick out and his cheekbones defined. Asah has straight black hair that falls a little past his shoulders and muddy brown eyes.
 
Personality: Asah has a strong personality, he can take a lot of abuse. He is quiet, speaking only when he feels it is completely necessary. Asah would prefer not to be seen most of the time, yet his height often draws attention to him. Asah has a tendency to jump at small noises and he is a coward, a sight of trouble and he will run. And yet he is kind and loves all animals, he trys to help anything since he knows the feeling when no one offers to help you.
 
Bio: Asah was born in a small village ((town? Not sure of the setting)) and for the first couple of years lived happily and quietly. That was until the slave traders came and raided the village, killing the men, violating the women and kidnapping the children who weren't too much trouble. Asah was taken when he was only four. He was traded into a band of travelers and he has stayed with them ever since. They treat him badly when he has done something wrong and gets little food but is ignored if he does everything right.

(( I'm going to go ahead and make a dragon.  It doesn't have to be a pair up with you Honor, I just want your permission before I do so, but I think it would be interesting :) ))
 
Name:  Mystique
 
Gender:  Female
 
Age:  Unknown, but clearly young.
 
Appearance:  Mystique is shorter than the average dragon.  She stopped growing much earlier than a typical dragon should.  She has a stocky build with defined muscles.  Her scales are a dark blue, the color of a stormy ocean.  They have flecks of silver at the tips, making her look like a starry midnight sky.  Her tail is long, about ten feet give or take a few.  She glistens in the moonlight, and is able to camomflauge at night.  During the day, it is harder for her to stay hidden.  Her eyes are a stunning silver, with a jet black and symmetrically round pupil.  An unusual feature that sets her apart from most dragons are her long black eyelashes that have a defined curl.  This gives her face a more innocent look, but she is far from that.
 
Personality:  Mystique is typically a quiet dragon.  She is gentle, but still has a good bite in her.  She isn't afraid to tell you off, but then again, she doesn't often communicate with very many people.  If you are dear to her heart, she would willingly give up her life for you.  She tries not to get too attached to anyone or anything, for when she does they always seem to die or leave her.  Henceforth, she may seem like she's giving you the cold shoulder, but she's only trying to protect herself.
 
Bio:  Not too much is known about Mystique.  Her mother died giving her birth to her, and her father left her, simply thinking she was strong enough to fend for herself.  She essentially raised herself, learning survival techniques by watching other dragons from the shadows of the forest.  At one time, she befriended a red tailed hawk, and they shared the best of times.  One day, the hawk was killed by a mountain lion, and Mystique greived for many many months.  She then fell in love with another young male dragon, and they planned on flying off to a far away land away from everyone else and all the poachers so that they could enjoy their life together.  Sadly, he was killed by an illegal hunter, therefore ending their plan.  Due to her losses, Mystique prefers to spend her time alone or in solitude, and it takes her awhile to trust and open up her heart to someone.

((Here's my finished skellie guys, sorry it has taken so long to get this done))
 
Name:    Gryff
 
Gender:  Male
 
Age:         Unknown, but older than what he looks.
 
Appearance:  For dragon size, Gryff is just barely above average.  His growth spurts didn't hit him until much later in his life which explains why he has scars on his face, tail, and legs.  His tail extends to about 8 feet from his body, again just above average for his kind.  His height and lankiness for a dragon belies the true strength that lies in his toned and agile frame.  His scales reflect a darker garnet red, almost as if he blood spiled upon him and dried when he was born.  Although he is adept at flying and is a naturally skilled flyer, he cannot be be hidden easily even in the dark.  During the day his scales shimmer, reflecting the heat, casting an illusion that he may not be real.  Gryff can be noticed from other dragons by the tribal birthmark that lies on the lefts side of his face, running from his eyes to the lower part of his chin.
 
Personality:  Gryff keeps to himself and to the companion he is bound to. He doesn't speak much, mostly because he is mute.  Experiencing a new way to communicate through telepathy, he must create a bond with someone before he may speak to them.  Sometimes this is easier said then done, as his temperament towards rude and unkind people is feiry and often lashes out out them if they don't step back in to their place.  Gryff enjoys spending time with his companion and meeting new people from each race, more than what he lets show in public.  If he wishes to protect the ones he values more than life itself and lay down his life for them, let it be known that there are not that many people who are truly close to his heart.  This overflowing feeling of protection has earned him the nicname of being the Guardian amongst his closer friends.
 
Bio:  Gryff has a past that he remembers but there are plenty of peices that are missing from his story.  Born and raised by only his small mother on an active volcano top, he lost his mother and his voice to the volcano as it erupted violently one day.  Being sheltered as he was, Gryff then had to make a life of his own from scratch, beginning to hunt efficiently and learning to fly through the surrounding forest and sometimes the empty volcanic shafts.  Being one of the few dragons in that part of the area, he was also often hunted down by poachers looking to profit by ending his life.  This built a well of mistrust towards humans and even dragons if they were paired with a poacher.  It wasn't until recently that he has learned his telepathic abilities to communicate and is still scared of what power this might endow upon him.  Never experiencing true heartbreak other than his mother, Gryff is openly honest and often straightforward when he communicates with you, often seen as his source of weakness, it has become his source of strenght as well.

((Yeah sure, I was thinking everyone could post like a setting or a mini-story before everyone starts to finally meet up and all the action and story-devising comes in to play (: Y'all ready for this!?!?! Because I know I am!))
*In the beginning...*
 
Gah! There is never enough to do around here! The animals never migrate and there is absolutely nothing to appease my appetite for excitement and thrill... Gryff thought to himself, leisurely flying above the volcano he called home. Mt. Shraw, he thought to himself, My home for so long... He had thought about leaving, plenty of times has that thought run through his mind. But he could never follow through with it... there was just nothing to motivate him from leaving his home.

Elliot walked quietly through the forest, she was in dragon territory now and was moving stealthily.  Her feet were bare so she could feel the groundbetter and have sure footing.  She had on knee length dirty brown trousers and a dingy beige tunic with the sleeve ripped off.  A leather strap went from her left shoulder to her right hip, a dagger sheath at the end of it resting snuggly aganst her hip.
Elliot had been sent out to kill a dragon and bring back it's claws and tail spike.  She also was suppose dto pick up some dragon eggs.   From her left shoulder to her right hip was another bag, a messenger bag that was to carry the 'trophies back in.

Mystique was aimlessly wandering her favorite part of the woods.  It wasn't really unlike any other day.  She had just finished hunting, and was settling down for her lunch.  Her sensitive hearing from living alone most of her life picked up on most sounds.  She had sworn she had just heard someone in the forest not far off.  Not wanting to assume it was nothing, she stood up and prepared to make a get away at any moment.  She quietly munched on her lunch, keeping an ear out for any predators.

Asah walked quietly behind the drunk men, head bowed down. The men staggered in front of him, boasting and yelling, surely half the forest could hear them. one of the men slurred loudly, "You know what I would do? Y-you wanna know what I would do right now if I had a -a... a sword? I would slay myself a buck." Another man hooted, "A buck? Why not a dragon?" All the men roared at that, and in their drunken state proably didn't relise they could barely walk, a dragon would kill them in a breath. Asah looked up at the sky, watching the diamond blue swirl above him, this was how he passed most of his time. One of the men called back to him, "Oy, boy, watcha lookin' at? Hopen a pretty dragon gonna come and befriend you? Or better yet, you'll slay a dragon?" Asah said nothing as the men hooted, this was best. It was always best to say nothing.

Elliot stopped and sniffed the air, there was a dragon up wind of her so it shouldn't smell her but she could smell the burnt metalic all dragons smelled like.  She started to move quieter, drawing her dagger and slipping through the forest, making sur eto avoid leaves and small sticks, she was nearing a clearing, Elliot peered ahead, she could see the dragon now.  The majectic beast of blue and silver.
Elliot had always found the dragon a majestic awe striking creature, yet she'd always seen them as prey and predator too.  She dropped intoa sqauuted position behind a bush, watchingc losely and bearly breathing.

Gryff continued to fly around his home territory, circling around in the fresh air and clear blue sky.  His eagle eyes scanning his territory... There was a particular smell of humans and a dragon mingling at the inside edge of his boundaries, but he paid no attention to it today. That particular side had always had a habit of bringing some bad luck to him. He decide to land a fair ways away... just looking for some game to feed his hunger. In the distance, his hearing could barely pick out some drunken humans...

Asah bowed his head, keeping his eyes from meeting with the men's. The men teased him and baited him, trying to get an excuse to beat him, but Asah said nothing. Finally one of the men stepped foward and gave him a sharp smack across his cheeks and yelled, "Stupid boy! Say something won't you?" Asah hestitated then said, his voice soft, "I say nothing as all you say is right." The men frowned and continued to walk. Eventually they sat down and set Asah about setting up a fire. While they dawdled around, Asah gathered frewood and took a match starting a fire. He glanced up at the sky and his brow furrowed as for a second he thought he saw a dragon swooping over the trees. Asah blinked, must have been his imagination.
