In the Darkness Shining Tsunami Ha'gelan
Name Meaning: Lighting, the state of being lighted; illumination; the method or equipment used to provide artificial illumination
Bonding: Vovin: Morning Star — Geoffrey
Fury of the Storm — Dragonforce
Naturally rounding out the trio, this Tsunami shows the purest heart, the flash of lightning in the storm that brightens the night sky during the darkest hour and annihilates whatever foe he sets his sights on. His strength is the strength of concentrated focus and intellect, often displaying a level of strategy and foreplanning that is impressive even for a rank of Firelizard known for its cunning. He prefers to focus on one thought at a time, striking swiftly and suddenly with great force, rather than trying to slowly whittle down a foe or take down large obstacles in large clusters; no, his tactics tend towards the individual, giving everything and everyone its own personal touch with a finely honed edge depending on the situation. It is no surprise he is often victorious in his endeavors, as he never allows himself to succumb to feeling burdened or overwhelmed, believing that there is no setback or defeat so great that the only option is surrender. In his veins flows the unshakable confidence of somebody who has never lost, and it doesn't matter whether clenched or not, because there is a certain charisma to his wit and no-nonsense attitude, and his sense of glory and valor and love of proving himself, that he tends to inspire those who join with him to the same kind of optimistic inspiration. He will work tirelessly to defend the righteous and any who cannot defend themselves, smiting all who attempt to threaten his kingdom, for simply by being himself he tends to rise to a position as the overseeing ruler of whatever domain he comes into.

Standing Outside the Fire Tsunami Sirok
Bonding: Harvest Party — Kythen
He doesn't need you. You need him. Determined to keep the world at arm's length this Tsunami is not exactly the most sociable of creatures. He's stubborn and will save his own skin before risking his neck for you. You may need him but that doesn't mean he's always going to be there for you. Besides, if he's not attached he doesn't have to risk getting hurt. You can easily be replaced if he doesn't care about you. But like all story book heroes who think love could never happen to them, there might be that one person that managed to wriggle their way into his heart. Just don't expect him to like it….
This Tsunami is slightly darker and smaller than his brother though just as eye catching. He's an overall deep blue in color with ripples of lighter and darker blues across his hide. Frothy whites are streaked across his face and all across his back like waves on a restless ocean. Varying shades of sea green lurk near the whites and over his claws.
We call them strong
Those who can face this world alone
Who seem to get by on their own
Those who will never take the fall
Blinded By The Snow Noon Pau
Name Meaning: Halo, a circular band of colored light around a light source, as around the sun or moon, caused by the refraction and reflection of light by ice particles.
Bonding: Daily Christmas Advent 2011
Chipper and exuberant Pau is just perfect for brightening up anyone's day, figuratively and literally! The kind of girl to enjoy the simpler things in life Pau will make anything into a game, she'll race you to a bonding or she'll make morning coffee into some sort of puzzle. Anything can be made fun if you come at it from the right angle, and that's exactly what she's doing, it has nothing to do with being competitive, so long as everyone has fun then everyone wins! And sure it can be a little irritating when you're not in the best mood, but she's just trying to make you smile, honest. Hiding your bag was supposed to be a de-stresser, you clearly needed a little bit of silliness before heading off to that bonding! She never meant any harm by it really! Okay so maybe she's not the best at putting you in a good mood but at least she's nice to have around when you're already in one. Between Pau and Karil T'Rae is unlikely to have any sort of break during the winter, there's just so much to do outside why wouldn't you want to be out there, and during the summer for that matter, she's just got so much energy and there's all sorts of things to be able to do why wouldn't you want to be doing them! At least right up until she wears her little self out and falls asleep right there on T'Rae's shoulders.
Pau's hide is just as blindingly cheerful as her personality, with mottled shades of vibrant yellows cover most of her body, brightest around her face and neck and darkening along her legs, though not by much. Her body is mottled with shades of a bright nearly-white, particularly along her back and stretching out along her wings. The closest thing to any shade of orange on her body is stretching out along her tail, and even there it's not particularly dark. A perfect medium size for a noon it's only her hide that makes her really stand out, that and she's a little bit noisy with her crooning and chirping. Anything to catch attention and make everyone play along.

We Stand as One Noon Teretuhr
Name Meaning: Together, in or into a single group, mass, or place; in association with or in relationship to one another; mutually or reciprocally
Bonding: Vovin: Morning Star — Geoffrey
It is said that Noons have a tendency to be lazy. In that respect, this particular Noon might or might not fit the bill, depending on your definition. She does, after all, try to keep to herself and to stay away from the frontline, out of the spotlight and out of the main action; but whether it's laziness or the reluctance to participate in conflicts is another matter. She's also not particularly active socially, perfectly approachable and content to be invited to be involved as she wants, but never really showing any inclination to go out on her own, simply content to stay where she is and, to herself about everything and oversee from the back of the crowd. Patient with all and close to none sums it up pretty well. However, even if she is never affectionate or singularly devoted, she does display a very strong sense of solidarity in her desire for unity among groups, having an intense belief in the strength of working together to overcome obstacles, as well as a stubborn refusal to back down from any problem so long as other stand with her. Her disinterest also extends to other areas of her mind as well. Hers is a very general approach to life, with no specific interest and no real attention to minor details but a willingness to pay vague attention to pretty much everything and keep a very broad and all-encompassing focus. A big picture kind of gal, in other words.

Meet Me in Outer Space Midnight Firelizard A'tja
Appearance: Blurry-lined and poorly defined patches of deepest blue and darkest purple ebb and flow in a fight for dominance on A’tja’s slender frame. Even in the brightest midday sun its hard to pinpoint exactly where blue ends and purple begins. Beginning at the base of her skull and tracing the gentle slope of her spine is a smattering of white-bright stars, tiny pinpoints of light amidst the all-consuming darkness. But as night fades into day indigo and inky purple fade from darkness to light as slowly down each leg the colors lighten gradually, each appendage ending in rosy-pink dipped toes. Sizewise, A’tja is a rather normal Midnight neither small nor large. She is a proportionate and attractive female with a certain grace and fluidity about her movements that makes her a joy to watch, especially in flight.
Personality: A prim and proper Firelizard, A’tja is the picture of easy elegance and effortless grace. Outwardly she comes across as aloof but make no mistake, every move is deliberate and carefully thought out as is every noise made, every instruction given- just everything. There is nothing A’tja does not do without first taking a moment to think upon the best way to execute, and the best way is always the way that propels her to the top. No one but you, T’Rae, will ever know it but A’tja feels an irrepressible urge to be the prettiest girl in the room, the faster flier in the skies, the one who can complete a Rubik’s Cube the quickest, et cetera. Silent and discreet in her obsessive compulsions, this Midnight will not ever accept anything less than the best. She holds others to the same standard as she holds herself, and abhors those with loose morals and questionable standards.
Wake Up Slow Midnight Parisa
Bonding: Birthday Gift 2012 — Altair
Song: Banana Pancakes - Jack Johnson
Baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you this
Song is meant to keep you from
Doing what you're supposed to…
Parisa isn't the type to hurry about, rushing to get things done. She's more of the 'lets lay here and think about it first' type, often times looking simply baffled by you trying to get things done quicker than they need to. Haste makes waste and all that, which is a fantastic way to live if you ask her. She's the first one to try and convince you to relax and take it easy, believing that resting will do you better than the stress of trying to finish what you're trying to do. But don't get her wrong; she's not lazy by any means. She just prefers to go at a slower pace than others do. Her absolute favorite place in the world is curled up wherever you're at, and you can make her week by just taking a nap with her. She's the calm you probably need when everything is blurring right past you - until you mention banana pancakes, that is. If she so much as smells the batter, she'll let out a high-pitched creel and dive bomb whoever is making them. That is the only time it's okay to rush things, okay?! Mmm…pancakes…
Waking up too early,
Maybe we can sleep in…
This Midnight was apparently very lucky with her genes, if only for the fact that her being stuck in Slow never seems to make her get too fluffy. Sure, she has a bit of a pudgy belly, but that just makes more of her to love, right? She sinks in with a deep, dark navy blue at her snout, which gradually lightens to a dark-slate blue color along her neck. Once it reaches her wings, it resembles a murky indigo color, and is a considerably lighter shade of the hue on the undersides of them. That same color runs under her chin and along her stomach, creeping along about half-way under her tail which has gotten lighter as well. It ends as a soft rosey-purple color, and speckled generously all over her body are white speckles, making her look exactly like a night sky. Around her neck she sports a pendent that looks like a full moon, only adding to her lovely coloring.
I'll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it's the weekend now
And we could pretend it all the time…
Encouraging Asteroid Midnight Pi'ek'tra
Name Meaning: Asteroid, any of numerous small celestial bodies composed of rock and metal that move around the sun
Bonding: Daily Advent Redemption 2012
The most loyal little cheerleader that you're likely going to meet, she's a sweet and encouraging little thing. She'll not tolerate any kind of self-disappointment, everyone takes time to learn new things and to do it right you're probably going to learn how to do it wrong first, and that's okay. There's nothing wrong with dreaming big, because even if you don't quite get there you'll end up somewhere really amazing. That doesn't mean she thinks you won't make it though, she has the utmost confidence that you will, because that's what happens when you work really hard at something. And she'll be there to help you out through every step of the way, whether that means helping you study or train, or bringing you lunch, or helping out around the house so that you have more time to devote yourself to what you love. She has her own dreams too, of course, she thinks it would be pretty neat to be the first Firelizard to ride on a comet, and no silly little phrase like 'physically impossible' is going to stop her from trying. She just still needs to figure out some of the mechanics.
The crystal clear sky of a cold winter night drips down her hide, beautiful swirling shades of blues and purples that create a stunning backdrop for the brilliant streaks of white that decorate her hide. A whole field of falling stars cast themselves across her shoulders and down her back, a whole field of falling stars that steak beautifully across her hide. Though she may be small, she's certainly no slouch, active and healthy she's surprisingly strong for a Firelizard, and it's no surprise she can come across as being quite unstoppable. It shouldn't really come as too much of a surprise at all considering she's a firm believer in living what she preaches, and if she's going to tame a whole comet by herself then she needs to be in shape!
The Tickets to The Gun Show Cyclone Ahn'var
Name Meaning: Sword, type of double-edged sword
Bonding: Half Price Day Gift — Anastashia
Ahn'vahr is big and bold and brilliant, if he does say so himself! With a build that would make any Firestorm green with envy, more muscles than George himself it really doesn’t matter that he’s kind of short. He’s still Hero Material and don’t you tell him any different or you’ll find out just how built a Firelizard’s Jaw can be. Just look at it, here wait while he flexes that tiny jaw and sit in awe of his greatness. Covering his pygmy body builder body are primarily dark colors, swirling and mixing in a Maelstroms of gray and black with flecks of dark maroon here and there. Down his back is a think crackly streak of bright vibrant white, like a strike of lightning in a swirling vortex on a hot summer night. Other than that one bit of white there is really no uniformity to his coloring, or even the rest of his body. Shhhh, don’t tell him that his left bicep is slightly more pronounced than his left.
Like his name suggests Ahn’vahr is a beast of a Cyclone. Like any of his rank he never seems to just lay back and quit. No, he is always moving, always on a mission to rescue some damsel in distress, or a gentleman in distress. He’s an equal opportunity Hero and there will always be something for him to conquer or some monster for him to slay. He’s a highly focused individual, and while he may be hyperactive and just thrumming with energy it’s all useful energy. He won’t stop whatever it is that he’s doing until its finished. Rescuing an Umbra Flamma from a pack of them, no problem, just don’t ask him to stop the Fisi coming to take them ALL down. When he transmits images of his great feats, they are usually high exaggerated and accompanied by a lot of muscle flexing and action noises. It is also not unusual to see him curling jars of jam in his little lizard arms or trying to fly with fishing weights tied to the ends of his wings or something else equally ridiculous designed to increase his strength and endurance. You have to be a truly beastly specimen of Firelizard greatness to annihilate monsters after all.
Electrical Disruption Cyclone Falun
Name Meaning: Charge, the quantity of unbalanced electricity in a body (either positive or negative) and construed as an excess or deficiency of electrons (noun)
Bonding: Half Price Day Gift — Geoffrey
Unfortunately for you this Cyclone is large, even by Firelizard standards; he's grown thick, tough, and strong, and surprisingly fast for his weight. There is no distinct pattern to his colors, clouds of black and white and grey overlapping and misting together haphazardly, although streaks of white, like heavy windblown rain drops slicing the air, appear predominantly on his wings. Like the rest of him these wings look tougher than it should be, the membrane entirely opaque, and the hide-covered bones thick as well. No colour seems to actually be attributed to his beady eyes underneath the swirling emotional display; if it wasn't for that on the quality of Dragons and their tiny cousins, it seems likely they would be a plain black storm.
A storm is what he is himself, a downright terror in fact. Nevermind mischief, he wants to destroy things, his whims leading him to attack all sorts of household objects and other objects, and living beings as well, his little brain indiscriminate about who next gets the brunt of his hyperactive frenzy. He seems to be particularly drawn to electrical circuits and anything connected to them, and he will chew through every single one of your cords and short circuit everything in your house at least once before the year is over. Most likely, he's attracted to the bright sparks electricity gives off and the strange tingling feeling, as all of the loud crackling and snapping and popping noises. You probably shouldn't let him near any Cracklings; he'd most likely try to eat them, too. Whatever the reasons for it all, he's your problem to deal with now. Your happy but manic destructive problem.
Blizzard Cyclone Izh-sahriv
Name Meaning: Blizzard, a violent snowstorm with winds blowing at a minimum speed of 35 miles (56 kilometers) per hour and visibility of less than one-quarter mile (400 meters) for three hours
Bonding: Secret Keehar 2012
This egg was adorned with a spring of holly and placed in a snowflake decorated flower pot of heated sand. Around the base were snowflake sugar cookies spelling out "Happy Yule". Next to the pot, a luxury box of truffles lays wrapped in snowflake wrapping paper. Upon waking on Christmas morning, the egg splits with a loud crack spilling the shell, pottery, and holly onto the tree skirt. The hatchling unrolls from a tight ball and glomps you eyes swirling with hunger.
He is ALMOST pure white with just enough light and dark grey in his skin to make people think about him like a blizzard, especially a pure undiluted whiteout. Unfortunately, personality wise that about sums this ball of energy up. He should come with a label "Lock up your breakables." because that china set your grandma gave you? Yeah that one's kinda gone. Bulls in a china shop have nothing on this guy.
Name Meaning: Breeze, any of five winds with speeds of from 4 to 31 miles (6 to 50 kilometers) per hour, according to the Beaufort scale
Bonding: Half Price Day Redemption 2013
Furtive Troublemaking Cyclone Narat
Name Meaning: Derived from Narat do-toh, Hide-and-Seek,a children's game in which one player does not look while others hide and then goes to find them (anc.)
Bonding: Half Price Day Gift — Grimm
True to his rank, Narat is constantly in motion, but whereas others like to use that hyperactivity to draw attention to themselves, he prefers to stay hidden. So what if he can be rather on the shy side? Don’t think for a moment that means you’re gonna get it easy. No, he’s still a troublemaker, still likely to get into everything and anything… he’s just got good at sneaking around to do it. So there will be days you get up to find flour all over your kitchen, and Narat nowhere to be seen, or you’ll come home to the bathroom flooding because clearly someone thought there should be a pool indoors, or…really. Whatever is going on, you can just go ahead and blame the Cyclone. He’s full of mischief, and has no fear of getting into trouble. Not that he really lets himself get into trouble, mind you. He’s good at staying hidden, and he’s not going to show himself unless he’s good and ready. Or perhaps you have a treat for him?
Believe me, he’s only going to fall for you faking having a treat just once.
With some patience, you might be able to coax him out of hiding in dark corners and skulking in shadows. But he’s still likely to remain wary of anyone but you. He prefers his shadows to people noticing him, because really, if people notice him, how is he supposed to cause trouble? And that he’ll love more than making friends.
He is definitely on the small size for a Cyclone, but this suits him just fine. Being giant would make that whole ‘sneaking into places’ far more difficult, after all. Slim and petite, he’s built more for speed than fighting, and he’ll happily make use of that far too often. He favors dark colors, his hide mostly black with dark gray dabbling over his haunches. Up along his wings, his color lightens to a murky gray. Of course, this is assuming he’s not colored in flower or whatever other ingredient he can’t track around the house.
The King In His Castle Cyclone Thol
Name Meaning: Noble, a titled peer of the realm; having high moral qualities; having or showing or indicative of high or elevated character
Bonding: Half Price Day Gift — Alan
Likely to be mistaken for albino at some point in his life, Thol’s hide is ghostly white from snout to tail, with only the faintest dustings of gray and brown speckled across his legs and the backs of his wings. The only dark spot on him is one very peculiar marking atop his head. A jagged, circular pattern set into the pale flesh, thin tendrils of mahogany dripping down, around his jaw and down his neck.
Regal he may look, and regal he will act, at least in company. In this Cyclone's mind, he's as far from common as he could get. He holds himself like true royalty, all slender grace, his wings draped around him like a speckled cloak. Catch him when he thinks nobody's looking though, and you might be convinced it's all just an act.
Flamboyant Fashionista Cyclone T'sai
Name Meaning: Lady, female-specific honourific title
Bonding: Half Price Day Gift — Katsumi
This Cyclone is a hyperactive sweetheart, and an interior decorator. He flutters around homes, dabbing paint on walls (because your eggshell would look better as burgundy) and rearranging furniture (namely by knocking objects off of shelves, because hun, that's a dust magnent). He loves decking himself out in beautiful finery, jewels (shiny rocks) and scarves (toilet paper) and the like. However, unlike some fashion divas, he's more than willing to share with you, and he'll be right there in an Ailoa pack to help his bonded dress for any occasion. You… may want to keep him away from your hair, however, because he feels that bald is always in style.
His body is on the curvier side, but they're firm curves, not the sort that jiggle. He's just big-boned, really, but he's totally comfortable in his own skin (just don't let Massaker hear you make any fat jokes). His body is covered in a blend of grays, blacks, and whites, colors that go with any accessory, and he always has plenty of those. His favorite is generally necklaces or scarves, but really how can one choose? He's pretty feminine, in fact, it's sometimes hard to not refer to him as a 'her', which really is no skin off T'sai's back. He and his soul mate, Massaker, are often found side by side, balancing each other's personalities perfectly.
Name Meaning: Chart - chart/diagram/map showing formations or data points
Bonding: Rainy Day Adventures Speedbonding — Teeka
The easiest way to describe his pattern is to say that he is a color point. The majority of his body is a deep, terracotta red, then on his nose, tail tip, paws and the leather of his wings his hide is a drab olive green. He must have belonged to someone at some point since there is a silver band around his left hind leg, similar to what one might find on a pigeon or other domestic bird capable of long distance flight. Perhaps he was used to deliver messages before he got lost, but not all of his adornments are practical. On the last finger on each of his front paws is a fine metal ring, one gold in color, the other black. There must have been a point to the decorations, but nothing about his behavior will give any clue.
Perfectly typical for his rank, this Quake is bold and energetic. His rapidly changing emotions often make him seem flighty, but he really is a steadfast companion. The one thing about him that is worth noting is his amazing homing instinct. No matter how far he travels, he can find his way back home without having to resort to darting Between. This is useful if one ever gets lost with him, though it might take some effort to discover this particular talent.
Land of Milk and Honey Quake Martayath
Name Meaning: Hug, to put your arms around someone to show your love or friendship; to move, lie, or stay close to something
Bonding: Minidragons! Speedbonding — Geoffrey
As far as Quakes go, he's as calm as you could possibly imagine or dare to dream of. There's not an ounce of bite in him, and only half an ounce of bark, as happy to bathed in the sun with you as any Noon, and equally happy and peaceable with any of your other friends, shiny or humanoid like, never holding anything against anyone. Got other small babies? He'll watch over them and not mind when they accidentally nibble on his tail. Got older shinies, or any that are disabled? He'll be patient and kind with them, going out of his way to make sure that everybody in the household can live in the greatest harmony. Though his is not the most outgoing of personalities, he is nevertheless charismatic in his own quiet way, passionate in his sharing of emotions and with his behaviour and mannerisms. Even the way he holds his head will brighten up whatever room or field or jungle he's currently in. The only thing we could possibly warn you about him is his attention span. Oh, he is loving, oh he is generous and glorious in his quiet, world helping way, but he tends to try a little too hard sometimes. He'll be assisting that Aluna with a broken wing and spy a Psyder falling off a bookshelf and fly to their side to help without thinking about it and then be all aghast at himself when he turns around to see the Aluna squeaking on the ground wondering where his support system went. Lots of little things, really, but the little things can add up over time more and more often if you don't remind him that he gets to take a break sometimes to.
Golden brown hide stretches over the smallest of Fanaath's found Firelizards. Lines break up the background with horizontal streaks, parallel to each other and his spine, of bright crisp lawn green. Both these colors disappear, however, on his long, skinny tail, which is dipped in pure light honey, a color you could call yellow as much as you could call it brown. Compact wings comparable to those of a sparrow curve out from his body, suitable and perfectly functional and little more, thin leather revealing more of the honey tone. Slender overall and extremely flexible, he has a knack for agility and squirmy bursts of speed, even if he's not long distance flier or aerial acrobat.
Strike Like Dragons Quake Ri'a'gra
Name Meaning: Single minded, having one overriding purpose or goal; steadfast; resolute
Bonding: Vovin: Morning Star — Geoffrey
Unlike the other two Quakes, this fellow, while sharing their intensity, stands out as distinctly more the hero type. He is an adventurer at heart, a wanderer, and he makes it known that he prefers to work alone, although unlike the mercenary Tsunami, he's a much more idealistic beast. He follows his own moral compass, and will compromise it for no one, most closest resembling a stand inbetween a lawful neutral alignment and lawful good rather than truly one or the other. Perhaps there is some merit to his staunch belief in his duty to protect the freedoms of others, for he is practically impossible to bring down, with a pounding heart that refuses to give up until his goal has been accomplished. He is also perhaps the most traditional Quake of all in his flightiness, prone to dramatic shifts of mood that can swing to the highest highs and lowest lows, rarely staying in any sort of middle zone, and rarely staying in one temper for too long. Although he plays the vigilante hero, and will put up a fierce resistance against all he marks as a threat to the well-being of the world, and although he is perhaps the healthiest and most forgiving and generous of the male Firelizards, there is a deep intelligence and his gaze that speaks of the weight of many unhappier memories of doing what must be done, what is right, regardless of how much he may not have wanted to. He is happy to provide a guiding light for you, and to defend you from all troubles, but he will never be close beyond choosing where his first loyalty lies. Protecting the one is less important than protecting the many, and if he chooses you, you're probably strong enough to stand on your own without him anyhow when he leaves to be a guardian of the weak. With a restless spirit, and a shadowy lone wolf attitude overlaying the rest of his personality, he is the hero, or perhaps antihero, who will always be there to fight in your favor when times are toughest and the battle thickest, but do not expect him to linger for your praise. There is more to be done.

The Great Quake Salazar
Bonding: Congratulations! Speedbonding — Lucas
"the sleek and powerful"
Though emotional is not quite the correct word to describe this Firelizard, you can certainly tell that his emotions strongly dictate his actions. Is he twittering around all excited like? He's probably in a good mood. Is he grumpy or mopey? Maybe you did something that displeased him. Bodily he is thin and narrow, almost serpentine, able to move and flow with currents and make sharp turns in flight. In terms of coloration he seems to take on much more greens with only a few streaks of brown beneath his neck. Some of the green seems to border almost silvery, but that's surely only a trick of the lighting, isn't it? Though sometimes he may appear to have malicious motives, that is most certainly not the case. He's mischievous, giving him something of a bad reputation, but he is likely to be misunderstood! He does have good intentions, most of the time, but he does have a strong sense of promoting himself and making himself greatest of all! Other things, unfortunately, are simply secondary.
Effervescent Morning Solstice Firelizard Ciliza
Bonding: Secret Keehar Present 2011
Sure, Ciliza is a pretty one, but there’s actually a bit more going on in that head of hers! She’s not all sugar plums and fanciful dreams, but a more realistic Firelizard that has a Plan. Active most in the morning, she’s got a little mental checklist of things to get down and will zip about accomplishing her tasks, whether it is arranging your newest holiday plant in an aesthetic manner across your bed (who said flower petals were not for scattering), or waking you up bright and early as a cheery, relentless alarm clock. By the time noon has rolled around the day is already wasted! Why on earth would you want to wait that long to get going when you could have everything done by noon? Then you have your whole day to relax and wouldn’t that be nice 8D?!
This Solstice is a pale one across the vast majority of her body like a bright winter’s morning, all down her head and neck until it finally fades into the brighter, more permanent markings of all the other ranks. Her hind legs and tail are a gradual fade from dawn to noon to twilight and lastly, midnight. She’s quite a lovely creature, with just the barest hints of these colors on the very edges of her wing sails. Over all she’s on the heavy size for a Solstice, long and muscular to last through the long winter and beyond.
The Chill in Your Hide Solstice Karil
Name Meaning: Winter (season), a year as expressed through the recurrence of the winter season; a period of time characterized by coldness, misery, barrenness, or death
Bonding: Half Price Day Gift — Alan
T’Rae, look at all this snow! Why aren’t you rolling in the snow, doesn’t everyone roll in the snow? What do you mean you don’t like snow? Let me get a good shot at your kneecaps, you’re coming down here whether you want to or not.
What a bundle of wintry energy! Why are you still in there, this snow is obviously so much more fun than just huddling inside all winter, why don’t you come out and play? This lighthearted little Solstice knows how to have fun, and she’s not going to give up until she’s convinced that T’Rae’s having just as much fun as her. Even when the snow’s long since melted, there’s always something she’ll find to stick her nose into. Just make sure that she’s nice and bundled before she takes off, poor thing’s liable to catch death if she goes tumbling about in the cold with nothing but her velvety-soft hide to keep the chill out. And maybe a nice hot cup of cocoa and a cuddle afterwards wouldn’t be so bad either.
A miniature riot of multicolored liveliness, at least she’ll be easy to find in all that snow. As with all Solstices, her coloring differs from hour to hour, but during the daylight hours her hide shines with a bright mix of sunny yellow and pale blues and pinks, darkening to an inky blueish-purple at the tips of her wings that spreads slowly as the sun goes down.
The Chill of Bitterness Solstice Kis-ka
Name Meaning: Jealous, resentful or bitter in rivalry; envious; having to do with or arising from feelings of envy, apprehension, or bitterness
Bonding: Wzztmas Gift — Zaerias
An odd creature for one born from Whazzitmas, this little girl is a rather bitter creature. She seems to be intensely spiteful for Christmas decorations; which is strange, because it's clear this little flitter absolutely loves the holiday. She's envious of the lights and the colors, for while she is a myriad of colors herself, she's not as bright or distinctive as they are. And some of the colors, she doesn't even have. They're so pretty, and so decorative, and she feels like she's so bland and not festive. It's with a bitter happiness that she enjoys the holidays, and will forever be moody that she doesn't fully fit in with the Whazzitmas theme.
This Solstice is a rather tiny firelizard. She has short legs, a very feline, thin body and long narrow wings. Her neck is rather long, making her look a little bit more serpentine than draconic. As far as her colorings go, they shift like an aurora borealis. The colors of dawn start at her nose, and they shift down to her tail in the order that the day goes by in. When one time of day is present, that section on her body seems to illuminate, drowning the rest in brilliant light.
The Strict Schoolteacher Solstice Shi'oren

Bonding: Wzztmas Gift 2013 — Anonymous
Solstices look so sweet and innocent, don't they, those pretty colours all on the same velvety smooth hide and their faceted little eyes looking up at you? They look almost whimsical as they change with the seasons and the days. Well, it will take you about as long as it takes for the pain from having little Firelizard teeth nipping the end of your finger for you to figure out that this little lady is not putting up with any of your whimsy nonsense. She very much considers herself a scholar, and the one in charge, nevermind her size or rank, and that means you should be a scholar, too, because she says so. She won't put up with uppity students, let me tell you right now! She can be quite snippy, and has no problem with biting your knuckles since she can't rap them with a ruler when you answer something wrong or don't pay attention.
Her appearance is rather simplistic in its charm and beauty. A pure white belly never changes, but all the rest of her will, as reliable as a sundial. The tip of her nose starts off the pale pastels of Dawn, and the colors ripple in a smooth gradient all the way down her spine and spreading across delicate wings to and with deep violet and finally the tip of black on her tail. Though small, her teeth and claws are sharp and she can zip around at quick speed, so don't think you can do anything behind her back and not suffer the consequences if you can slip under her stern radar in the first place.
