A Quickened Pulse Blue Gaya
Name Meaning: Pulsation; the act of pulsating; a single beat, throb, or vibration
Bonding: Remember Remember — Maeko
When you meet her, it's easy to see why anyone could fall in love with her. She's perfect, graceful, kind, loving, gentle- and always a friend to those in need. It's easy to feel your mouth go dry, your pulse quicken, your heart to open and wish that she could be yours. But she can't. Yet despite obvious boundaries and a taken heart she understands you, understands what it means to have crushes, to fall in unrequited love. She's had her own such experience and is bound to have more- but it's okay. She'll tell you that when you're down, even if she feels the very same for she never quite loses hope.
Someday it's all going to be okay.
"We're cool," I say calmly, although I feel something else. I feel… sad. Like I've lost something I never quite had.”
She’s right on the money in terms of being the size of your average Blue. As a Chilean Blue Eagle, she is quite beautiful indeed, pale blues fading into rich navy barring. She’s pretty in her sleekness, though her tails are on the shorter side. Over all her coloration a fine ghostly blue fire prevails, changing the shades and making her look just a bit more transparent. Her eyes are tinted purple-red, like the color of a dying fire.
Twin Fire Green Castor
Bonding: Birthday Gift — Lucas
Hatched from the same egg as his twin sister, this Green Phoenix is rather tiny in size and rightly so for his rank. His lavender eyes are a strange offset from his foamy green body. Swirls of a darker grass-green riddle his body at random, and his tail feathers are long as they are beautiful. His feathers are rather neat and kept well, though there are many occasions in which he ruffles them in embarrassment or distress. He never fails to sit down and organize himself, however, so that he looks tidy at the very least. The flame that ignites over his body is especially bright when his sister is nearby.
It's hard to consider either of these as the "elder" twin, but Castor certainly gives off the illusion of being such. He is rather stoic next to his twin, despising his small size because it completely prevents him from protecting himself much less his little sister. In fact, in terms of girth, he might be on par, even a little bit smaller than she. Castor has the mind and heart of a guardian, and while some may consider the unfortunate circumstance of his small size and weakness a tragedy, he will promptly and lovingly remind you with a quick peck on the head that he is the last person that needs your pity. He will likely not even kind of forgive you for underestimating him, and he's got quite the nasty temper once provoked. His friends, his bondmate, his sister will be the first ones to tell you that he's got something of a nasty temper, and while whatever sort of vengeance or justice he decides to extract on you seems passive aggressive, it is often far from passive. The only thing he knows better than his weaknesses are his strengths, and he'll probably be good at spotting out the same for anyone else that is against him. Just because he's confident in himself doesn't mean that you're off the hook either. That's right, all of his friends, his bondmates, his bond, no one is off the hook. He'll scold you if you indulge in any sort of self-loathing and will remind you quite frankly with confident songs that there one is no one like you in the entire world, and while the issue of self confidence is certainly not black and white, Castor might as well believe it is. A doer, not a speaker, Castor would sooner burn and fail to rise from his own ashes than give up, on anything.
The Slightly Off Balance Green Phoenix King Bull Sparra
Bonding: Anniversary Abbey Wzztversary 2011 — Maeko
Greens generally are considered a bit odd, and this one is no exception! He’s incredibly clever, but also walks on the insane side of life. Given that he just naturally assumes a leadership position whenever he can, he tends to be able to control and order around less intelligent shinies like Alunas. Heavens know that life is good under him, who will happily provide you with a slave to cater to your every whim and fancy. He’ll be kind to those in his flock, but he is severely xenophobic and tends to squawk and try to fight every foreign shiny or object that comes near to T’Rae or his flock. Entertainment is important to this king, who will post rewards for the one that can steal the most prized possessions of you or your friends. Sometimes his inability to control himself around foreign people and shinies is a huge nuisance an he’ll often wind up injured because of it, but he’s determined to make sure that everyone knows who you belong to. While he can’t speak, he addresses anyone that’s not a flying creature by sending off an image of a worm, his term for all ground dwellers.
You certainly don’t want to think of him as some foolish bird that you can bat away, oh no! He’s a monstrously large Green, easily the size of your average Blue. Chalk that up to a fine lineage of only the best genes. His tail is rather unimpressive for all the rest of his splendor, stubby and much shorter than usual. The wings are the same way, rounded and stubbly and altogether not really that attractive, but he’s wickedly fast in short bursts of flight, not meant for the long sustained processions after queens. Had you been able to distinguish it, you might call his eyes a really boring solid brown. He’s a dark forest green on top, blended with several lighter shades across his body so that it becomes clear, when looking at him, that he appears to be a flaming sparrow. Around his neck is a thick gold chain and a ruby gem, and a fine match for the solid gold crown that he wears atop his head. Sparkly, baby! For whatever reason he tends to hoard weaponry, his most prized possession being a strangely beautiful, Aluna-sized steel sword (just don’t tell him that Martin has the real one!).

Virtuous Dignitary Purple Danala
Bonding: Once in a Lullaby - Maeko
As regal as an empress, this Purple is a usually soft-spoken but constant presence, firm in her resolve and ever graceful. Above all else she both exhibits and prizes loyalty and honesty, for she is entirely without corruption or sin of any kind. She is a forgiving soul at heart, but her sense of duty and strong beliefs make her somewhat judgmental. As a side-note, she absolutely loathes snakes and serpentine creatures such as Serpens and Asids. Brave as she is, she will not hesitate to attack them should she consider them to be a threat to her dearest bond, T'Rae.
Fenghuang (or Huang, as she is the female counterpart) is a splendid creature to behold, ornate and utterly beautiful. Being of the smallest rank, she is a petite thing but quite elegant. Her build is as swift and agile as the swallow, her body coated in a softly metallic flame. Her neck is thin and supports her finely shaped beak and face, while her torso is slim and slender and gives way to long legs and dainty talons. Deep purple masks her eyes and runs down her back and out to the base of her slender wings. A black hue circles the base of her throat, the underside of which is a pale lavender that blushes all the way down her chest and disappears into her long tail. Her flight feathers are a light shade that's somewhat of a mix between pink and purple to soften up her appearance. The most striking feature though is what is saved for last- her eyes, which are a sharp, lucky emerald.
Twin Flame Purple Signy
Bonding: Birthday Gift — Lucas
Hatched from the same egg as her twin brother, this purple is a bit of the runt of the clutch, though she does admittedly have a bit more meat on her body. Her eyes are equally as lavender as her brother's, matching full well the lovely lilac color that smolders over her body. Violet accents seep in her flight feathers, and her tail is long and quite pretty. While she doesn't keep herself as tidied as her brother does, her feathers seem to naturally stay in place, leaving her glimmering and shining always. Her flames seem to take on a sort of magenta color that stands out as pinker than the rest of her body.
Signy gladly and easily falls back into the role of younger sister, backing up her brother in the fullest. She supports him in everything he does, enjoying the spotlight but not requiring it. She doesn't grow jealous very easily and will gladly allow her brother to take the front lines while she cleans up behind him. She's not nearly as organized, and her mind tends to wander pretty easily. Her favorite thing to do is relax and observe, and with and oddly sharp memory, Signy usually remembers what she sees. Not one to hold a grudge or demand forgiveness, this purple Phoenix is like the younger sister that anyone always wanted. While shy might be an odd word used to describe her, she isn't usually one to do the approaching and will quite gladly be overlooked if that means she isn't dragged into a load of trouble. Don't get her wrong, if anyone she cares for, especially her brother, she will charge in head first without a moment of hesitation, but if she doesn't have to, she'll avoid it. She's as good a listener as she is an observer, and she is usually pretty silent, preferring to hum deep in her throat than outright sing. She's got an oddly calming nature about her, and is often the perfect foil for Castor as the Green tends to back down quite readily if it's by his sister's request. While her calming nature affects everyone, it seems to ring most truly with her brother as he will reluctantly, but always, listen to her when she is being reasonable. She will protect the Green above all else, and is rarely seen very far from him.
