Appearance


OIZYS: GREEK GODDESS OF DISTRESS, MISERY AND ANXIETY
She is a brutish, powerful creature, with large, muscular hindquarters and a well-defined draft topline. Functional and sturdy, strong and unyielding, Oizys is certainly not beautiful in the traditional sense, but those with an appreciation for the art of battle will undoubtedly be able to see the attraction in her obvious natural assets. The gargoyle possesses medium length, stocky legs, adorned with light feathering. Although she was born black, she was her adult colour of dark grey with darker face and legs by the time she was a yearling. The only deviation from the steely solidarity of her body is the white sock on her right hindleg, which, like her sire, she sees as an ugly flaw. Haunting grey-blue eyes stare out of a well-crafted, shapely head; they are almost always cold and filled with malice. Three black, twisted horns sprout from her face, viciously pointed and lethal. She is completed by a lion's tail, tipped with a long, hairy plume, and a thick, tangled mane of the same colour as her dark points.

The right side of her face is disfigured with a hideous three-pronged scar, inflicted by her father's harpy eagle on the day of her birth. It is long, jagged and ugly, running from above her right eye down her face towards her nostril. Thankfully her sight is not affected, but her appearance certainly is; she is not pretty anyway, but this twisted mess of ravaged flesh makes that side of her face grotesque.

BREED: Heavy draft mutt x Andalusian x Friesian


Personality

MONSTROUS. ILL-TEMPERED. QUICK-WITTED. WARRIOR QUEEN. VULGARITY INCARNATE. SASSY BITCH.

A dangerous combination of her mother's wit and her father's savagery, Oizys is an enigmatic and ever-changing creature. Her temper is raw, unrefined and dangerous; once, her eagle companion Ker helped tame her more vicious side, but Ker is lost now, leaving a gaping and ravenous void that the gargoyle chooses to fill with yet more wanton acts of violence. A bully and a downright brat, Oizys detests weakness; she hides any hint of it in herself, and annihilates it in others.

She is brash, filthy-mouthed and vulgar with a vocabulary that could make a sailor blush, and has a worrying disregard for the effect her words will have. She is most certainly not politically correct, although she tends to save her sharpest and most crude comments for her closest friends; the more she insults you, the more she likes you.

Sarcastic, obnoxious and unwilling to show her emotions, Oizys is fairly easy to dislike, but a friendship with her brings countless boons - not least the fact she'll stand up for her few friends without a single thought for her own safety, demonstrating a loyal streak that she does not want to become public knowledge. In a way she thrives upon being hated, which is why she holds her cards close to her chest and rarely demonstrates a softer side.

Brave to a fault, the dauntless gargoyle will not bow to any challenge. She has survived a crippling birth defect, grievous wounds and the loss of everything she's ever loved; she has a mental strength that more than matches what she possesses in physicality. Oizys is a natural warrior, driven by ambition and a wealth of natural ability, and will enter battles even with fearsome odds against her. She takes a macabre pleasure in bloodletting and enjoys inflicting pain and wielding death, something she has inherited from her monstrous sire.

History

Oizys' dam fell pregnant after an ill-advised tryst with the monstrous Reginald; worried that her herd would accuse her of neglecting her warrior duties due to her condition, she concocted a lie about searching for her lost father, and spent her pregnancy alone in the wilderness. She gave birth in the depths of winter in the frozen north of Helovia, without the safety of a herd to protect her and half-starved from a difficult pregnancy; she almost died during the delivery of twin fillies. When their sire arrived to inspect them, Nyx was powerless to protect them from whatever wickedness he had planned for them, and could do nothing but watch as his bonded harpy eagle attacked Oizys for the crime of not being male. The raptor ripped the right side of the newborn's face open, disfiguring her for life and almost killing her; her will to survive helped earn her father's forgiveness.

When Nyx returned to her herd, she completed her lie by telling her king that she'd found the two girls orphaned on a battlefield; Oizys grew up unsure what to believe, convinced that her dam was ashamed of her. Not long after her birth she found an unattended bird egg, which hatched into a Philippine eagle that forced its way into her mind and bonded with her. Initially wary of the raptor thanks to the wound inflicted by her father's companion, Oizys nonetheless admired and worshipped the mighty birds, and named the hatchling Ker after female death-spirits of Greek mythology. The duo grew from strength to strength, even though Oizys had been born with a birth defect that sent her into paroxysms of breathlessness after the slightest amount of exercise; just something else she had to conquer during her difficult early life.

Upon reaching adulthood, Oizys had learned to control her illness and hide it from the public eye, and was a strong, sturdy young mare who could summon creatures made of electricity to aid her, as well as transform into any animal she wanted through drinking their blood. When she thought her life was finally on track, she was brought crashing back to earth when Kaos, a malevolent new God made of the reconstructed parts of fallen deities, rose to power in Helovia and threatened all its inhabitants. Oizys was one of the few who stood against him, but alas, he did not take kindly to her defiance - he struck back, and Nyx took the blow meant for her daughter. She died, leaving Oizys with the crippling guilt of knowing she was responsible for the demise of her mother.

When Kaos later offered to heal Oizys' birth defect as an apology for killing Nyx, the mare was wary, although she accepted. She intended to rise against him and gain revenge, but never got the chance, as Kaos opened a cut in the fabric of the world and dragged Helovia's inhabitants to a terrifying, twisted land called the Rift. Oizys banded together with the old members of her herd to investigate this crooked new world, and survived for a few months without any of the Rift's macabre creatures attacking her.

One evening, however, she fell foul of a strange, powerful mage-animal when she and Ker attempted to take its blood to use in her transformation magic; she did not realise that it could wield portals as easily as other creatures could wield hooves and horns. It tore her magic from her, ripped Ker from her mind, and cast her in the direction of Nordlys.

________________________________________________________________

Instead of finding Ker, Oizys has unwittingly found herself bonded to a silver dragon named Moros. His name means doom in Greek mythology, and this certainly befits the brutish leviathan of a drake. He is the top echelon of what his bonded species can grow to, at four feet tall; he is bulky, thickset and muscular, yet possesses a certain beautiful grace in his movements.

His body is covered in gleaming silver scales, denoting him as a Royal dragon, second only to golden queens in importance amongst his brethren. Thick, curved black horns sprout from the back of his head, a crown fit for a king, and a row of black spines run right down his back. His tail is tipped with a simple fork, the edges of which are viciously sharp and often used for slicing his opponents. His eyes are a cold blue-grey like Oizys's, usually gleaming with malice and savagery.

Moros is not a pleasant creature. He is the embodiment of all the worst parts of his bonded’s personality, perhaps because her mind desperately tried to repel him when they first joined. Vicious, unhinged and dangerously arrogant, he seeks to dominate everything he sets eyes on; in dragon society he is the highest rank a male can be, and he knows it.

He looks like this and this except with a forked tail.

He is brother to Rico, the red bonded of Kid.

More Information

Moros' race of dragons, which hail from Loorien where Helovia and Isilme existed, base their hierarchy on scale colour. Females are superior to males and tend to be larger, and a golden female is known as a queen; she has dominance over all other dragons. Bonding to a golden queen is considered a great boon and an indication of strength.

Royals - rare, the largest and strongest of all dragons: Bronze (male only), silver (male/female), gold (female only)

Commons - usually medium-sized: Red (male only), green (female only), blue (male/female), brown (male/female)

Plains - rare, the smallest and weakest, usually bullied by other dragons: Black (male/female), white (male/female)



Arms & Armor

Winter's Fury: The blade itself appears to have been molded from ice, a depthless blue spreading down from a pitched hilt inlaid with sapphire gems. It reaches out, arching slightly, stark white where the colors of midnight have receded; the very breath of winter. —STOLEN FROM JAEHAERYS

Faceplate: A faceplate made of steel, shaped like a dragon's skull. Reference



Trinkets & Accessories

Small item: a necklace made of bird skulls.

Small item x3: three glass vials corked with wool for storing blood in preparation for re-obtaining her shapeshifting magic.
