Detailed questions for your OC's: Aymeri 3,21,25, 28 & 49 please and thank you!
Thanks for asking! Aymeri is a favorite of mine, and his character is constantly evolving.
3. Did they have a good childhood? What are fond memories they have of it? What’s a bad memory?
At around age 5 or 6 or so, all male dragons are given to the mother of their clutch to be raised together. In Aymeri’s case, he went from his birth mother, Maurrean, who was a kind, nurturing Earth dragon to the hot tempered Anaia, the Daughter of Fire, which was a bit if a culture shock for him. Being very adaptable by nature, he adjusted to his new circumstances, but never lost his curiosity, and often challenged the boundaries his clan’s leader set for him.
His fondest memories of childhood are of playing his favorite game, hunter and prey (like hide and seek) with Terhanis and Seryn. He especially loved being the prey, and finding the best places in the eyrie to hide.
His worst memory is from the time when he was eight years old, a few years before his first transformation into his dragon form, when decided to try to swim across the ocean to the mainland where the adults would hunt. It was much further than he anticipated, and by the evening he was completely lost and alone in the middle of the ocean. Eventually Merrin, another Water dragon in his eyrie (Lyannis’ clutchmate) was able to find and rescue him, but he spent a few hours absolutely terrified he would be alone forever.
21. Do they have a temper? Are they patient? What are they like when they do lose their temper?
Aymeri is very patient and it’s very hard to rile him up. In his long life so far, he’s never really lost his temper or been more than mildly peeved at anything or anybody. But that patience is going to be tested rather soon in the story.
25. What do they find funny? Do they have a good sense of humour? Are they funny themselves?
Aymeri is not really one for making jokes, but he is amused by Seryn’s sarcastic remarks, and the way Terhanis can mockingly imitate her mother. (Behind her back, of course, because no one mocks Anaia to her face)
28. What is their biggest fear? What in general scares them? How do they act when they’re scared?
For all dragons, their biggest fear has always been their superstitious dread of the fae. As magical creatures, they are aware of and sensitive to the fae presence on the mainland, and they are terrified by it. Aymeri has grown up fearing it as much as any of them, but that fear has also made him curious about it. His reaction to that fear has been to understand and learn about it, rather than just avoiding any mention of it.
49. What is their most valued object? Are they sentimental? Is there something they have to take everywhere with them?
Dragons are not big on possessions (lol, no hoarding in my dragon lore) so Aymeri doesn’t have any object he particularly treasure. But he is sentimental, especially in regards to his clutch and their bond.
