We try to interrupt and calm them down. While Corwyn doesn't seem to be feeling friendly today, Loki is in a adventuring mood.

Heading towards the two arguing dragons, they appear to not notice you, or at least not register you as a threat.

Gender: Female

Rarity: 4/10

Personality: Fierce, this is a girl who knows what she wants. She is not afraid to defend herself, or her family/friends. She may not be the best fighter, but she can sure put up a good one. She is a good debater as well, and often turns arguments off track to get an advantage over her opponents.

(I've dubbed her "Typhoon" due to her personality. ^^;)

Gender: Male

Rarity: 4/10

Personality: Unlike his female companion, this male prefers to talk than fight. His combat techniques are centered around the hope he already knows about his foe; a massive disadvantage in real battles. He often loses debates as well, stumbling over his words more than others and forgetting his trails of thought.

 

What will you do?

We decide to introduce ourselves.

 

Female Name: Does it have to be Typhoon? I'm okay if it does, but if not I did have another name in mind.

Male Name: Drizzle

Flying East, Blaz points out a large island. Amaya lands softly, Blaz barely disturbing sand with his landing. The two have had much experience...

Two Aquaborealis are seen from a distance, each seeming to be oddballs in their own ways. They appear to be mates as well- sticking close to each other. You jump off Amaya, the sand sinking around your boots. The two Aquaborealis' ears twirl to your direction, and they narrow their eyes. Growling, the male jumps towards you three first, the female following.

Gender: Male

Rarity: 8/10

Personality: He is aggressive, especially protective of his mate. This boy does not accept "no" for an answer, and will fight to get his way.

Gender: Female

Rarity: 8/10

Personality: She follows what her mate says without question, but does not follow anybody. She has high standards, and will not have it otherwise. The two are a troublesome pair, attacking any who venture into their territory.

Melanistic

 

What will you do?

Beautiful pair of dragons!

Oh the male is gorgeous, and a melanistic aquaborealis, nice.

 

(White male) Name: Orion

(Melanistic female) Name: Borealis

 

Backstory

 

The white male didn't even hesitate! He shot a scalding jet of water in my general direction. Amaya pulls me away in time. A bit shocked, but prepared I speak to the white aquaborealis, attempting to reason with it.

"I'm sorry for entering your territory, but besides that. Who are you?"

Blaz defends his mate, while I stand my ground.

Leave now, or face serious consequences.

He sprays a freezing jet of water, aiming it near my head.

Ashild, watch out!

Blaz tosses me into the air, suddenly seeing Amaya grab me and place me down. Taking an offensive stance, both Blaz and Amaya were prepared for this. They had their heads lowered in a defensive stance, Blaz tried to reason with the angered male.

I'm sorry we intruded on your land, but you outright attacking Ashild is going way too far...

Blaz growled slightly, ready to spring at the white male at any point.

Well, too bad for you buddy! Borealis, get those two.

The aquaborealis gave his mate a powerful stare.

"Oh for Thors sake... AMAYA, LETS DO THIS!"

I'm on it Ashild! Alright... Borealis I know your mate is the one in control. But could you atleast reason with us?

Sorry butI can't dear, you just aren't good enough to reason with me.

The melanistic female strikes at Amaya, Blaz glances over quickly noticing the wild female and tackles her. Telling her to stay down.

You will not lay a single paw on my mate... Now, stand back. I need to deal with your mate...

The wild female rolls her eyes, but stands down.

That mate of yours...

Amaya keeps her eyes on the female, ready to her mate. And I watched as Blaz and the wild male circle eachother.

Ugh, when will you give up?

The wild male rams into Blaz, knocking him down.

Oh I see, I guess thats the way it'll be.

Blaz was quick to trip the wild male, Blaz got up and stood on the wild male.

Now that you've been defeated fair and square, please restrain yourself and let the human reason with you.

The wild male snorts, but accepts it... Blaz did beat him after all.

Ugh fine, i'll speak to the human...

The wild male walks up to me, he was impressive to say the least.

"I wanted to make it up to you, I'm sorry for intruding on your land..."

Ashild held out a small metal trinket shaped like a dragon.

"It might not be much, but I hope you like my gift."

Oh yeah real sweet doll, now what exactly am I supposed to say to a human like you?

Orion prods Ashild, but doesn't kill her in an instant knowing that Blaz would come in and strike him down.

"Well, who are you? And who is your mate?"

Orion seemed annoyed and frustrated, why won't he let me kill this sack of flesh? Orion growled a bit, deciding whether or not to respond.

Well, whadd'ya know, this little trinket of yours is certainly interestin'. By the way, I'm Orion. Displeasured to meet ya you little monster!

"And I forgot to introduce myself, I am Ashild Halti."

I look back at the two females, they weren't attacking. But instead bickering over unimportant things. I could faintly hear the wild female say she despised Blaz.

"You stay right where you are, i'm going to check on Amaya and your mate..."

Ugh... how do you put up with humans?

Blaz coaxed Orion into his place, keeping a watchful eye on him... Little did he know that Orion was planning something.

Simple, they don't try to kill us. You almost killed Ashild twice, and put my mate in danger. Do you have any remorse?

I have had it up to HERE with you trespassing on my land! And do you really think I care about that talking-walking pile of meat you call a human? Oh I would've killed her if you hadn't been keeping your eyes on me...

Meanwhile, the two females slowly began agreeing with eachother but barely. They put aside their differences and began to passive aggressively argue.

That human... Disgraceful. I don't know why you live with these monsters.

Really, its not all too bad... Some aren't like most you've encountered, some care and some don't. But to you they all want to kill you and your mate!

Amaya looks over to me and greets me, but the wild female scoffs at me in disgust.

Well, look at that. The human has arrived... You strange creatures and your lack of abilities.

Amaya snaps at the female, attempting to keep her quiet and the wild female couldn't handle it any longer. She leaps at Amaya, trying to bite at her throat. Amaya counters this by jumping back, waiting for the wild female to strike so she could successfully restrain them. Once again the wild female attempts to tackle Amaya, ending up in the wild female being firmly planted into the ground.

Woah woah woah, you went way too far. The only thing I want you to do is NOT kill anyone.

I give up, and you can eat dirt for all I care...

A bit shocked I look to Amaya, clearly confused by the whole ordeal.

"Oh, you are great at fighting Amaya."

Thanks, now could you try to reason with this female as well?

I look at the wild female, giving her a quick gaze.

"Look, I know you hate us for being on your territory. But I know there can be the tiniest bit of compassion in you?"

Honestly I could care less about you, Amaya, and her mate.

I sigh, clearly disappointed. But i'm not giving up yet.

"You know, this would've gone by much easier. But i'm not going to start a pointless argument with you, all because of a territorial fight..."

The wild female sighs, looking around then glancing at me.

I don't like you, alright. Its not my fault that my mate is extremely protective!

"Please, I already know why you want us out of here... But can't you accept me as a friend, you don't have to."

A few hours later, i've continuously chatted with the wild female. And she's slowly giving in. But the sun was setting at this point so Blaz, Amaya, and I went to the near by ocean to fish. After eating, we head back. Only to find Orion resting next to his mate. I hope food will change their minds.

"Hey Orion, I got something of use to you."

Nah, i'm not going to get up besides-

The smell of fish was appealing to him, Orion slowly got up and came over. Even after he and his mate went fishing, a little snack wouldn't hurt... right?

Hand it over, I won't be forced to attack you if you do.

I throw the fish to him, it lands near his front legs and he quickly eats it up. I also toss one for his mate, and no surprise she eats it.

I can't believe i'm going to say this... T-thanks.

Orion begins to freak out after saying thanks, muttering and scratching the ground. *Inner thought dialogue*

*I can't believe I said that! Am I going soft?* *You know what, i'm just going to kill that human!*

Orion charged up a scalding water jet, he closed his eyes occasionally looking at me. He had a hint of remorse in his actions, only to be shoved slightly by Blaz when he fired. The scalding water jet hit the sand with a hard fwoosh.

Even after she gave you food and a gift, you still try to kill her...

Without a word, Blaz gives a stare of disapproval to Orion.

Y'know what, i'm going to leave for a bit to vent. Come on Borealis, lets go.

Without a word, Borealis follows Orion into the air.

Its been a while since they left, so we headed to the next island to rest. The next day was a bit surprising... I wasn't expecting an aggressive dragon like Orion and Borealis to give us food. Well, atleast I know that they care a little.

We head back to Orions territory, and Blaz, Amaya and I thank the two.

You got us fish? Thank you...

I am happy you are beginning to agree with us! I'm Amaya, and this is Blaz.

"Orion, i'm happy you are beginning to warm up to us."

Just be happy I didn't kill you...

Orion flashes his markings in slight agitation. We give him some space and we return once he is calm.

As we slowly approached Orion I heard him quietly speak.

Why are they so nice to me? And my mate didn't seem to be bothered, even if she scoffs at them when they approach.

I looked at him, having hope to see him act with kindness. And as many more weeks passed, Orion and Borealis slowly began to accept us. Orion and Borealis approached us, clearly much calmer when I first met them.

Ashild... I still barely know you, and i'm trying to keep myself under wraps. I know i'm not the friendliest, but it was nice to meet ya.

I don't like you much, but atleast I know that all humans aren't bad. And your gifts are shoddy...

Blaz, Amaya, and I began to chat, and I noticed that Orion was breaking under the pressure. I tried to calm him down but he exploded like a volcano! He shot a scorching jet of water near me, then tried to swipe at me.

"BLAZ, A LITTLE HELP HERE! AAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHH!"

I fled from the enraged Orion, hoping to get out of his range, but he began to chase me! Blood censored and rage took over and he couldn't stop. Both Blaz and Amaya had to hold him down and wait until he calmed down. (lol he mad)

What is wrong with you Orion? Speak to me please!

The only response was growls and hisses.

Come on Orion, I know that isn't the real you! You can be better than that, I know you can!

Orion's mate began to worry, she started to tear up. Trying to get him to calm down was much h.arder than it looked.

Orion, why won't you listen to me? Orion Orion Orion...

Orion finally got a hold of himself, he stopped thrashing and struggling. Blaz and Amaya let him go, but keeping an eye on him if he decides to do it again.

Borealis, I thought that killing the human would be better for all of us... But I was so wrong about it, Blaz, Amaya, Ashild... I'm sorry.

Orion got up and nuzzled his mate with tears of joy, he mustered the courage to apologized to us. But only said a rushed sorry instead, we forgave him and went fishing together. I actually got a chance to talk to him. Orion surfaces with a fish in his mouth, he quickly swallows it then looks at me.

Don't talk to me.

I nod and relax on Amaya's back, simply chatting until Blaz arrives with the wild pair. Afterwards we took a flight, and I didn't speak to Orion as he requested. A few months later, I returned with Blaz and Amaya. Orion casually greeted me while Borealis mocked me, but still said hello anyways. A week has passed now, I am going to invite them over to see Berk for the first time.

Are you sure about this... For all I know you could be setting up an ambush!

Orion growls, contracting his pupils and giving a powerful distrusting gaze.

I still can't trust you, and I bet Berk is a shoddy dump!

Borealis scoffed before turning her gaze away from me.

"Nobody will hurt you, infact we have dragons of our own."

We land at Berk, Orion and Borealis explore curiously. But still cautious of any dangers. Orion is the first to land, he romps around. Terrorizing vikings for fun, soon after running to the beach with Borealis trailing him.

I guess its alright, but our territory is better.

I approach the pair, they swivel their ears in my direction. Giving a stare that pierced through my soul.

"So, are you guys enjoying yourselves? You can visit whenver you want, and i'll take good care of you. But I won't treat you as royalty, and you guys will atleast help me when i'm working on tough tasks I can't handle alone."

Orion stares me down, contracting his pupils and snorting.

Will you treat us with proper care? Or will you neglect the fact that we exist?

Borealis joins in.

I am expecting you to treat me the way I see fit.

---

The next day Orion and Borealis were gone, I assumed they left to go to their home territory. Or they could've though I was crazy and ditched me.

Lol got tired of writing, feel free to grade me on this part.

Poor names (There is already an Orion and Borealis is a very weak name for a species called Aquaborealis.), strained conversation, and an overall not particularly special backstory for a Melanistic and rare Aquaborealis are all reasons of why we have agreed to deny this backstory.

(And last, but not least...)

Killian leads you westward. After a short amount of time, he complains the air is tiring his wings, and you decide to simply swim. He stays on the surface, keeping you dry. You look at the sky and Killian dunks his head underwater, still swimming forwards. You get knocked off Killian as he runs (Or rather swims) into another Aquaborealis. Luckily, no other dragons seem to be around. Killian growls loudly as the other Aquaborealis seems to be trying to apologize, but only stutters seem to be coming out, not complete words.

Gender: Female

Rarity: 4/10

Personality: This girl is very polite, but very shy. She is easily intimidated, and tries to apologize for any mistake many, many times. She secretly enjoys being in the spotlight, but always messes up when she is.

 

What will you do?

What a beauty!

Oooh she's lovely! I'm going to have to really think on her name and story.  Is it odd that she reminds me of me a bit in her description? I'm a cronic apologizer myself.  I feel a kinship to this sweetie. Now if only Killian will behave. 

 

Name: Esmerelda

Backstory: 

Killian growled in agitation.  He flashed his colors preparing to attack the female.  "Wait a minute, Kill. She doesn't mean any harm," I called to him as I treaded water. Killian looked at me in surprise and agitation.  I could tell he was not willing to let it go.  The poor female had struck a nerve with him. "Killian! She doesn't mean any harm!" Killian gave me a cold look and suddenly took to the air.  He flashed his Markings and then took off to the West without a word. I sighed.  
 
I-i-i'm so s-s-sorry... The timid voice drew my attention.  I looked over at the wild female.  She looked almost wilted. I'd never seen an Aquaborealis so upset.  She stammered on apologizing as I swam towards her stopping a few feet away. The poor thing looked wracked with guilt. Her words turned into a stammer and then she seemed to lose the ability to talk again.
 
"Don't worry about Killian. He's just grumpy today.  Really,  he'll be back soon enough and everything will be okay, "I glanced to the West and then looked around me in every direction.  The nearest island was to the West the way he'd gone.  I sighed.  I guess I'd have to swim for it.  I she'd at the female," Don't you worry about us okay. Be well. "I started my long swim towards the island where I was pretty sure Killian would find me later after he blew off steam. 
 
I pet out a surprised sound as something came up from under me and I was raised out of the water.  I gripped her back as the wild female took flight and headed towards the island.  She had recovered some of her color and tilted her head to look at me. I-I will fly you.  I'm so sorry. I could tell she was determined to make things right even though she was clearly uneasy carrying a human.  I was probably the first human she'd ever met and yet she was willing to try and help me. We flew in silence for several minutes in silence before several somethings shot out of the water. 
 
The wild female let out a startled sound and suddenly put everything she had into flying fast. A pair of wild Scauldrons were on our tail and we were in danger.  I pressed myself as close as I could to her and peeked over my shoulder.  The two Scauldrons weren't attacking yet.  Instead they were playing with us enjoying our frantic attempt to escape.  We weren't near enough the island and I was wracking my brain for a way out of this.  My wild female friend didn't seem the type to take on two wild Scauldron on her own.  We were in trouble.  
 
I pressed my face to her back as a sudden shot of boiling water just missed us.  Ugh.  This was bad.  So so bad! I peeked over my shoulder again and this time caught sight of a familiar shadow racing across the water.  Neither Scauldron had noticed the Dragon making his way fast and low towards us.  I let out a soft sigh and gripped harder leaning in to Whisper.  "Kill..." to her ear.  The female twitched a ear fin but kept on flying frantically. I glanced back. 
 
Killian suddenly rose up above the fiercer Scauldron and attacked.  He took the male by surprise sending them both splashing into the water.  They kicked up water,  screaming and snarling as they lashed out at each other. The female Scauldron and the female Aquaborealis both stopped their flight to look back at the fighting pair.  With a cry the female was preparing to attack Killian as well.  I felt my wild friend tense and realized a half second before she did it what she was going to do.  My friend dove towards the female slamming her tail into her and sending the Scauldrons blast of water wild making it miss her target. 
 
The female Scauldron turned towards us with fury in her eyes.  I felt my friend tense up preparing to fight.  "Be careful..." and then I dove into the ocean below. By the time I surfaced the two wild females were flying high blasting water at each other and scuffling in the air.  I treaded water glancing to the water in the distance.  Killian and the male had disappeared under the water.  I looked back up at the two females and was surprised how the wild female was fighting. She was a fierce little thing for being so timid and apologetic. The female Scauldron let out a pained squeal as our female friend struck and injured her wing. The two males had surfaced again and suddenly the fighting was over. 
 
The male Scauldron took off to his female trying to shield her with his body.  He shot boiling water towards the Aquaborealis giving his female time to disappear under water and then he followed.  Killian circled the water they'd disappeared under for a few minutes before deciding they were gone.  Then he flew over to me and landed in the water. 
 
 He snorted.  Can't stay out of trouble can you? 
 
The female landing in the water near us.  I continued to tread water as the two of them watched each other.  Finally Killian dipped his head in thanks to her.  She flustered and stammered to speak and he grunted and shook his head.  Thanks for watching my human. 
 
I smiled and climbed on as he offered his fin to me.  Once on his back I smiled at the female.  "Thank you for trying to help.  You really saved us." the female blushed a little and shook her head.  She wasn't used to thanks.  In fact I had a feeling she was more used to apologizing. "I'm Keiran Dragonheart, and this is Killian, by the way and if there is ever anything we can do..." Killian grunted. 
 
I-i-i'm E-esmerelda,  she stammered back still flustered. We floated on the water in silence for a few minutes before she finally spoke again.  Y-you live with other Aquaborealis? On the Islands? I glanced at Killian who shrugged. 
 
Word is getting around about the humans and Aquaborealis back home,  he replied gruffly to me.  Then Killian looked to Esmerelda.  Yes we live on the Blue Isles.  
 
The female stammered trying to form words and getting more flustered as she tried. Finally I decided to help her our.  "Would you like to come with us and have a look around? I'm sure the Aquaborealis there wouldn't mind at all." she stammered again at a loss for words before finally nodding vigorously. Killian groaned and I lightly slapped him.  
 
He sighed, come on then.  The three off us took off back in the direction we came.  In a few hours we were showing Esmerelda around.  She was impressed and flustered all at once.  Until she saw Siren.  The two of them greeted each other like old friends and seeing someone she knew calmed her down.  We traded Killian for Siren and continued our tour. Esmerelda seemed much more at comfort with Siren and seemed to enjoy herself a bit.  We ended the tour by asking Esmerelda to stay the night and have a meal with us.  She nodded vigorously and did just that.  And somehow we kept putting off her leaving until the next day.  Siren finally settled her into a stable and we stopped talking about her leaving. Killian still occasionally acts put out by her but then he remembers how she fought at his side and he lets it go.  Even occasionally being a little nice to her. Esmerelda was still finding her place in our family but Siren had her under her wing so I knew things would work out eventually.

Message from Spy

Angriff flew to the group on the expeition, speaking to all of them. Spy isn't feeling too well right now. She has been gone for a few hours and says it's starting to get a little better. She apologizes for the delay and will get back on to continue the expedition as soon as she can. Thank you for understanding.

As KC said, I wasn't feeling too well a few hours ago. Nausea hit *again,* worse than usual. It's still slowly fading, but I didn't want to be near my phone or laptop really, or be doing anything involving stress or thinking until the nausea faded more. At least I've learned how to better deal with it? ^^;

Anyways, I apologize for the delay, there wasn't much I could do about it, other than sit it out. I'll get back to the expedition ASAP, as well as finish up some of the breedings.

I hope you all will forgive the wait, and enjoy the Aquaborealis!

Eros no they don't need apology seashells...

Spy asked me to pass along a little news about the expedition for today.  Life is a little chaotic and she's also feeling a little sick so she is postponing the expedition.  Most likely it'll happen next week. She's terribly sorry for the abrupt change of plans but life gets hectic sometimes. 

 

I now return you to your previously scheduled lives.  *wink*

I am extremely sorry for cancelling the expedition last week- I began to feel very ill and could not focus on anything. I was busy all weekend with school and house work.

The next expedition has been postponed to this Saturday, likely around 8:30pm PDT. It will go until 10:00am on Sunday, an overnight expedition.

I would like to know if anybody would be interested in a subspecies of the Aquaborealis, based on the original design for Aquaborealis. It will hopefully look something along the lines of this; Rough Aquariolis Sketch #1. This species will be more limited and less exclusive (Have lower standards for adoption). I am still working out information for the species, as well as how lowered the standards will be. I would like to know if you are interested, and if so, would you prefer to have them as adoptables, customs, or something else?

I hope you are all doing well, and I must get back to studying.

Idea

The Aquaoriolis dragon sounds interesting!  I also think if you did a variant of the Aquaborealis, that would be cool too.  Maybe an ice themed distant cousin of the Aquaborealis?  It could be called the Arcticborealis!  Anyway, just a random idea!

.:Expedition:.

This expedition has been extended to 12:00pm on May 8th, 2016 (Noon).

We set flight to a distant island- It will be a several hour flight overnight. Angriff and Echo will lead the flight, bringing a few of my Aquaborealis along for protection and aid.

After an hour, the group decides to stop on a small island to take a break and rest. Would you prefer to continue on or stay and take a break from flying? If you decide to continue, you may take one of my Aquaborealis listed below.

Mild Hurricane, Dark Waters, Painted Lime, Licht, Blanca, Amber Soldier, Algae, Mossy Vapor, or Eternal Springs.

If you decide to stay, you will be provided with the choice to continue later (In likely 30-60+ minutes), with the protection of my Experimental Aquaborealis.

Choose wisely.

Continuing the flight, Jasmine wishes you luck. Orion and Leviathan pick up the pace once night falls, their markings glowing enough to illuminate the sky around you. Another hour passes with no islands in sight. Would you like to return and try once the group is ready, or continue searching?

Continuing on, another hour of no luck passes. You tell Orion and Leviathan to continue, but they have shown signs of slight exhaustion. Shortly after, a glow coming from underwater catches your eye. There is no land in sight, but this may be the only chance of finding an Aquaborealis on this expedition you will get. Will you investigate the glow?

Lowering to within an arms' length of the ocean, you try to better see the glow. It disappears, then reappears a few meters away. This continues for several minutes, until Leviathan brightens her markings. The glow coming from underwater dies and a loud splash sounds as a large, dark shape hurls towards you, knocking you off and into the cold, inky water.

Angriff watches you fly off with Blanca, nodding to himself to assure that Blanca can defend herself if needed. 

Amber Soldier will k/ll me if Blanca gets into too much trouble... Angriff mutters to himself, Echo nudging Angriff with his wing to get him to return to reality.

The three of you take off, Blanca following closely behind. You notice she seems to be a bit more encumbered than usual, but decide to not mention it. Drevis's markings shine in the moonlight, brightening everything around you. An hour passes with no signs of an island. Will you return to the group and search when everybody is ready, or continue searching?

Flying on, another hour passes, then another. Blanca has begun to struggle to keep a consistent and strong pace. You ask her if she is alright, and she seems to bite her tongue, saying I am... alright... You then notice a small gash in her left back paw and a large bruise on her left wing.

Just as you try to take a moment to decide, you notice a small, warm gold glow in the distant water. 

Will you send Blanca back and continue, head back, or continue with Blanca?

Since elemental Aquaborealis' are larger than regular ones, Drevis volunteered to carry Blanca on his back while I ride Deathwish. We will continue on with Blanca since he didn't want her flying back alone in her current state. While they get situated with that, I direct Deathwish closer to the glow.

As you approach the peaceful glow, another glow appears, a pleasant teal. The four of you approach the water slowly, Drevis staying farther back for Blanca's sake. 

The golden glow fades out as the teal one brightens. A golden Aquaborealis breaches the surface of the water, looking up curiously at you. You look at her surprisingly and seemingly calm temperament. Just as the Aquaborealis seems to want to dip back underwater, you get smacked into the water as an Aquaborealis tail smashes into Deathwish. Intense blue eyes watch slyly as you hit the cold water, left to the mercy of the golden Aquaborealis. The golden Aquaborealis appears before you, glowing her markings. She narrows her eyes and grabs you with her tail, dragging you deeper.

Continuing your quest to find Aquaborealis, you see a shadow pass over you. You look up and see a pale blue Aquaborealis peacefully flying the opposite way, continuing on. You follow it, hoping to get its attention when another Aquaborealis launches out of the sea passively, of whom Nyx proceeds to attack.

(It's fine, they're simply there to aid anybody as a last minute addition if anybody wants.)

Continuing on, the morning sun bathes everything in a golden glow. Kalea's wings spread, catching a breeze. You spot a small island in the distance, about another hours' flight away. Will you fly to the island?

Spy is busy and allowed me to take over running the expedition. She apologizes for the delay.

 

Flying to the island, you land quickly and Kalea lays down to rest her wings. You decide to wander the area some and hear a nearby waterfall. Heading to it, it doesn't take you long to spot a female Aquaborealis drinking from the small pool the waterfall flows into. She turns around to face you and her markings glow softly as she greets you with a smile.

 

Gender: Female

Personality: This female is very playful. She is always open to trying new things and meeting new people. If a fight presents itself, she will try to fight, although she isn't very good at it.

Le Form!

I apologize for the story's length.  I can't seem to write a short backstory!  Anyway, enjoy!

Name: Jadis

Personality: This female is very playful. She is always open to trying new things and meeting new people. If a fight presents itself, she will try to fight, although she isn't very good at it.

Backstory: Finding it hard to contain my excitement, I smiled as I spotted the dragon by the waterfall.  I had been waiting for what felt like forever to get an Aquaborealis. You see, I was born deaf. It wasn’t until I was thirteen that everything changed. I will never forget the day my sister, Elsa (my character from Kalea’s backstory), brought home an Aquaborealis dragon.  Because they speak in telepathy, it allowed me to hear her dragon, Kalea, like an ordinary person.  That changed my life.  Kalea helped me learn how to speak, read, and write.  She even acted as an interpreter when I wanted to communicate with other people.  We had regular lessons, but when Elsa enrolled in the School of Dragons and joined a flight club, it got harder and harder to find time alone where I could have Kalea to myself.  My father realized that I needed an Aquaborealis that could be with me 24/7.  So, when we heard about the expedition, my sister and I jumped at the chance. 

    Shaking myself out of my thoughts, I walked slowly toward the dragon.  My sister flashed me a quick smile, and motioned me to keep going towards the Aqua.  I came closer and closer.  Then, something caught my eye.  I noticed the bushes behind the dragon were waving wildly. I looked back at Elsa.  She had grabbed her sword, and held it tightly in her hand. I whipped around. The bushes were rocking now, and some of the branches were breaking off.  I kept on staring, and backing toward Elsa slowly.  Suddenly, a huge dragon burst out.  It was a Whispering Death!

   “Elsa, Liana!  Climb on!” called Kalea.  “We will fight this dragon from the sky!”

   Terrified, I leapt on Kalea.  I knew that Whispering Death dragons could fly, but I hoped that it wouldn’t follow us.

   A few seconds later, we were up in the air, watching the two dragons from above. 

   Without warning, Kalea dove and spewed scalding hot water from her mouth.  Elsa jumped off as Kalea glided a few feet of the ground.  Elsa wanted to protect the Aquaborealis down below, who was cowering behind some boulders. The poor Aqua kept shooting her ice shards from behind the rocks, but they went everywhere except her target, slamming into trees and even hitting Elsa. Meanwhile, the Whispering Death started to shoot its spikes, and Elsa had to dodge and duck, trying not to get hit.

   “We need to hit the Whispering Death right in the eyes.  The scalding water will hurt them.  I am going to dive bomb him.  Hold on!” Kalea yelled.

   Shooting up then abruptly diving down, I felt my stomach rise up into my mouth.  I screamed in pure terror.  Kalea let loose a torrent of water, and hit the dragon right in the eyes.

   With a squeal, the dragon shot back down and was gone.

   We all stood in silence for a moment, recovering from the fight.

   “Are you okay, Elsa?” I asked.

   Elsa nodded and said something else which Kalea translated for me.

   “Elsa thinks the other Aqua was hurt in the battle.  She wants to grab her medical kit.”

   Elsa grabbed her kit, and we walked over to the Aqua, who was still partially hidden behind the rocks.

   “Are you hurt?” I called to the dragon as we came closer.

   “Yes.  I got one of the spines from the Whispering Death in my wing.  I think the dragon was mad at me, because I was in its territory.  Sorry about that.” the dragon replied, a little sheepishly.

   “That’s okay.  We can help you with the wound.  Come on out!” I said.

   The dragon smiled and scrambled out from behind the boulders, almost tripping a few times.

   Elsa came forward and examined the injured wing. She had her hands on the spike, and I knew she was just about to pull it out.  Her lips moved, and I could tell the she was speaking comforting words to the poor dragon, who looked very nervous. I put my hand on the dragon to comfort her, but I could feel her body was still tense.  Elsa yanked, and the spike slipped out, covered in blood.  Quickly, Kalea came forward, took it, and buried the spike in the sand.  Meanwhile, Elsa finished putting on the bandage. We assured the dragon it would be off in a few days.

   The dragon thanked us, and I asked her if she wanted to join us for dinner.  She agreed. Through our conversation at dinner, we learned her name was Jadis, but she preferred the nickname Jade.  She had lived on the island for a few years now, and the Whispering Death had only recently arrived.

   While her wing was healing, Jade hung around with us, and I got to know her very well.  She was a cheerful dragon, who always looked on the bright side. Jade had a great sense of humor and loved to tell jokes.

She enjoyed wading into the ocean shallows, but didn’t seem interested in swimming, which was strange for an Aquaborealis.  Jade was quite clumsy, and often bumped into things.

   A few days later, we took off her bandage.  Elsa unwrapped the bandage, and examined it.  The wound was completely healed.

   “Would you like to take a test fly to stretch out your wings?” I asked.

   Jade seemed a little uncomfortable, but finally said, “A sickness took my sight from me a few years ago, so it is unsafe for me to flyI wish I could do that again.

   That explained her clumsiness, the reason she was such a bad fighter, and why she didn’t like to swim out very far.

  “If you were blind, how did you know we weren’t going to hurt you when we met you by the waterfall?” I inquired.

   “Oh, I could hear your conversation when you were landing.  You were talking about whether you should name your new kitten Snuggles or Cuddles.  I decided you weren’t very dangerous.” Jade replied, laughing a little.

   “Yeah.  I doubt dragon trappers would be discussing that type of thing.” I joked.

    Suddenly, an idea came to mind.  I had once read a book about a dragon who was blind, and a trainer who helped the dragon learn to fly.  Maybe I could do that for Jade!

   “Jade, I once read about a dragon who was blind and learned to fly with the help of a trainer. They developed a language of squeezes that helped them steer.  If you would let me, I’d love to help you fly again.”

   Jade looked at me with awe.  “Are you kidding, Liana?  I would love that! But you’ve done so much for me already.”

   “Don’t feel that way. I want to help.”

   “Well, if you feel that way… Deal?”

   “Deal.”

   We shook on it.

   During the next few weeks, we figured out a language of squeezes that would tell Jade what to do when we were flying. When we first tried using the squeeze language on short glides around the island, it was a disaster.  I usually ended up face-planting in the sand or stuck in the trees.  Even though our flight lessons weren’t going well, our friendship grew.  I enjoyed hanging out with Jade, and she felt the same way about me.  Instead of parting ways after flight lessons were over, we began to spend more and more time together.  The two of us liked to stay up late, and we often took strolls on the beach by moonlight to gaze at the stars.

   We practiced censored our glides around the island, and slowly but surely our hours of work paid off.  Jade and I could easily fly around the island now.  But there was still one thing we had to conquer.  We had yet to fly in the open sky.  Up until now, we had made sure that we always flew close to the ground for safety reasons.  I knew we needed conquer this.  It was our last step to master the art of flying.

   Today was the day Jade and I would put all our hard work to the test. We were going fly in the open sky.  There would be no safety net.  I had asked Kalea not to follow us.  Jade and I had agreed we wanted to do this independently.

   Together, we made our way up to a nearby hill.  I clambered onto Jade’s back, my sweaty hands groping for something to hold onto. Feeling nervous, I took a deep breath, trying to calm my racing heart. Gathering my courage, I squeezed my legs quickly, signaling Jade to take off.  She responded immediately, and my stomach leaped as we started to gain altitude. I could feel gravity trying to pull me back down to certain death. Suddenly, there was a shift in the wind. Jade faltered. I felt my body slipping, but was able to right myself. I opened my tightly shut eyes, not even realizing I had closed them. Jade and I were high, the campsite but a dot. We had done it!  We were really, truly flying!

   Jade and I flew around the rest of the day just for the fun of it.  Both of us could hardly believe that we had accomplished what many would think impossible.

   Finally, by supper-time the two of us were starving.  Elsa had dinner ready and gave us some baked fish.  She served Jade first, and Jade walked down to beach with her food.  After she had served me, I followed Jade and sat down beside her.

   Jade was humming a pretty little tune.

   “That’s a nice song. Did you make it up?” I inquired.

  “Oh, that? It’s a song about you and me actually.  About our friendship. So I have something to remember you by when you leave in a few days.”  Jade replied, a little sadly.

   Suddenly, I knew that the moment had come.  Now was the time to ask Jade to come back to Berk with us.  My mind thought through what I had been preparing to say to her, but all the words I had come up with were gone.  I wasn’t sure if it was because I was nervous or just caught off guard.  But I knew I needed to say something, so I started to speak.  “Um, Jade, I, oh, I-I forget what I was going to say.”

   “Is something wrong Liana?” Jade asked with concern in her voice.

   “Oh, it’s nothing.” I said, looking out to the ocean. 

   “There is something.  I know you too well.  Do not feel like you have to be afraid.”

   “I’ve had so much fun over these past few months, even during those crazy first lessons.  Now that those times are coming to an end, I can’t imagine never seeing you again.” I told her, sighing. “Jade you’re my best friend.  I love Kalea and Elsa, but, you, you’re special.  I don’t want to just visit you every so often. I want to be with you all the time.  I want you to come back to Berk with us.”

   Jade had a look of pure surprise on her face.  Then, ever so softly she started to speak.  “First of all, Liana, never feel afraid to tell me something.  We are friends. I do not think that we should be scared or nervous to tell each other things, even if we have done something bad.”

   I nodded.  I don’t want to ever be nervous about talking to you again.  I hope you feel the same way.”

  “Do not worry, Liana.  I do feel the same way.”

  I smiled.

  “But about coming home with you.  I would love to. Best friends should never be parted. Besides, we can fly together all the time, and I will never have to deal with that cranky old Whispering Death again.” Jade laughed.

   “I’m glad Jade. I don’t know what I would have done without you around.” I replied.

   A few days later, Elsa and I rose early.  It was a long trip back to Berk, and we wanted to be home by nightfall.  We woke the dragons, and then had a rushed breakfast.   We were just about to mount our dragons.

   “Ready, Jade?” I asked.

   “I’m ready.”

    Suddenly, Jade wrapped her wings around me. “Thanks Liana. You’re a good friend.”

   I hugged her back, squeezing hard.  I knew that our friendship would continue to blossom, and I couldn’t wait for what was in store.

May we join?

If Trahveller and I may join this expedition a little late, we will continue on. Trahveller wishes to do it on his own though. So he will be my only dragon companion. Thank you!
