Sons & Daughters
Criss, son of the Water and Fire Elementals, is an angry and conflicted young dragon with a buried heart of gold. While many dragons are most at home in the sea or the sky, Criss prefers to keep his feet firmly planted on the ground, thank you so very much. But if he could only embrace his Water heritage, he would find that he can breathe underwater just as well as he can breathe air!
Loyalty is something that he raised himself to believe ever since he hatched, always having it wrapped around his head when around both his mother and father. While at times he does believe in deception it is only to a point, and then again there are negative traits to him that might make this mind-set slightly hypocritical. Karalis is someone who if you get in his good graces, it's difficult to get out. He is a bit oblivious to others, and may just believe anything they say if they get close enough to him.
Although with this mind-set Karalis often finds it difficult to connect with others, while it doesn't come easily it is possible. Sometimes he feels so different it's impossible for him to make friends with who he is speaking with. Karalis seems to have a slight mental issue with understanding sympathy for enemies and others. This is only triggered often when he is depressed though and isn't how he is all the time. It's simply something others should be notified about and be careful around him when the time comes that he feels indifferent to others.
Karalis has the attitude of a child at times, he is curious and wants to know everything. He's tried to learn how to read but never really could, so it is a skill he dreams of having one day. Humans and elves fascinate him immensely. Karalis wants to pick at every bit of information on, dragons and history everything. Which makes a weaker part of him more apparent because of the trouble this could get him into digging into things he is not supposed to be digging into.
There is one thing that everyone could get easily annoyed at, is his stubborn persona that could only be described as his super ego. Karalis at times will believe one thing, and will not change his mind even if the world was exploding in the front of his eyes. If anyone feeds his egotistical nature they may find themselves digging a hole that they can't climb out of with him. Karalis' personality and view changes easily depending on what others think of him or what he sees to be making him different. This also makes him a compulsive liar, when in difficult or uncomfortable situations, while he hasn't lied much since his younger years(by keeping himself comfortable).
Karalis may have a lot of flaws, and he himself be interesting and so different in certain situations but one thing is that he is smart. Or at least he likes to think of himself as that way, and that he can memorize information easily. The boy wants to know all that he can, even though he is such a young age by dragon standards. Karalis can sometimes be an idiot though, and pretend like he is the wise owl of the universe.
Though, besides wanting to be the smartest crayon in the box he can also be easily provoke by others. Karalis can easily become irritated and frustrated with others, stubbornly snappy as it would seem. He can spend minutes, even hours grumping around if something goes wrong or is anyone pisses him off pressing the wrong buttons. Especially if you bad mouth either of his parents, who he believes have done a wonderful job raising him. Regardless that they are apart at the moment.
Karalis is confident in his own abilities, in his powers and the way he speaks to others. That way he can have the effort to protect others when it is needed, and live up to the expectations of being a lesser elemental. Though with his ego built up at times, his confidence can be daring and outright stupid. Falling from tall heights and waiting for the last minutes to spread his wings, it is a miracle that he hasn't broken a wing or two before. One thing for sure is to try and not to encourage this behavior in him. Others would only be feeding the flame.
One huge flaw within him, is that in his state of indifference he can easily become selfish. No matter the creation, nor the child, or hatchling he would never risk his life to save another in that state of mind. The only possible ones he would make an exception for are his parents, in which he has high beliefs they can fully protect themselves. Karalis seen in this state could be seen as a dick, or otherwise plain insane. In the end he has a deep fear of death, and is something he never wants to see therefore tries to avoid it at all costs. He has seen too much death and kept it a secret for far too long, slightly eating his heart on the inside.
Karalis is a huge story teller. This adding onto the eager personality he has, he can easily switch to story telling mode in a moments notice. Though half of the things he says are highly exaggerated, for his or other enjoyment. Karalis' stories can also be both fake and real or a mix of the two. It's something to pass the time, and take his thoughts off of darker things that he buries deep into the darker side of himself. Karalis' stories usually fascinate many, the only ones being unable to fool being his parents. Most of his stories are for young creations, or hatchlings.
Ever since he placed many memories into a secret vault in the back of his head, Karalis has lost a bit of his maturity that he once had. Making him a little more childish than others would like him to be. Having fun, playing games, are some things he enjoys more than discussing serious matters. Though he can be mature if he chooses, immaturity is the path he tends to sway towards because of his past memories.
Despite all his egotistical negative traits one thing everyone can depend on him to do is care down to the core of his heart where it matters. If he isn't in a dark place, and doesn't assume that he will be forced into one he'll do his best to care for others. While he always insists on being the hero at times Karalis really does want to be a better dragon for others and himself. While sometimes just the fantasy is enough for him to believe he is being nice. His huge idiotic smile is something his family would have gotten used to by now.
Locked deep within his scales in his heart is a secret of those he is attracted to. Noticing it when he was much younger, Karalis sincerely thought something was wrong with him. His attraction to the male gender, and lack of attraction to females makes him feel rather odd inside. It isn't something he discusses openly to others, and it is even more difficult to get him to even say it out loud. If only someone were to tell him it's alright after he were to confess this passionate attraction to the same sex than perhaps his mind set on this matter would change.
In the end Karalis is a compassionate complicated man. While he has some darker sides to him, where he can easily make himself seem like a huge jerk or someone who spends his time hiding in the corner, he does have a nice side to him. His habits of running away from problems in his childish ways are common, and many issue's he has yet to solve even at his age. Karalis is someone others can depend on as long as they aren't poking him with a long stick of poison Ivy.
With a tall and slender build Karalis is a perfect combination of scales and fluffy. His body is not equipped for fighting much, but much more for flight and balance. On the top of his head and moving downwards is a Mohawk like mane bright red in color. However stops right before his shoulder blades and does not cover his back. this mane is very fine and fluffy soft to the touch compared to the slippery scale like texture for the rest of his body aside from his feathered wings. His wings having a wingspan of nearly twelve feet he isn't a huge dragon but is in considerate size. His top feathers are a deep red the same as his main while the ending primary feathers are a toned black like that of the husky top of his body.
Curved black horns sit on the top of his head, and the end of his tail is covered by an odd out of place fin, this fin helping with balance during flight. While he is four legged, his front paws also can act like hands having half thumbs much like that of a raccoon. To add having the ability to stand on his back legs and support himself for a long amount of time like a lemur. The anatomy of the slender dragon makes for an interesting sight.
While the top of him is a black husky, with stripes that cover his throat and stomach the rest of him his gray. The black extends to his tail fully and the fin that can extend and fold as he wishes. On his right shoulder is a marking of a skull and crossed bones bright red same as his soft feathers and mane. And the last note to be the blue eyes that he carries nearly simply out of place but to add a nice touch to the boy.
Inside his mouth is a rather thick tongue, where with his fire breaths a black color with a purple outline different from the traditional red color. His teeth are thicker in the front and are more closely related to those of a canine like dog or wolves. Be careful though Karalis likes to show off with his fire.
Karalis' power is something he does not use very often, it takes nearly all of his energy on most occasions. With both Darkness and Time combined and involved it took him a long time to master it and even now is something he considers only last resort. With concentration he can create on average a 20-30 foot cloak of darkness in a certain area. Within that area all time stops aside from him and those touching him. The cloak is thinly visible like a light gray color that shines when light hits it the right way. If noticed, it can easily be broken and everything inside will move again. It takes a lot of effort on Karalis' end and even more so for how long he holds it and who is also touching him at the time.
Samantha: And Paradox was amazing Dae! I enjoyed writing Adutaine opposite them. =)

Samantha: I get that Blazeh, no worries. <3 The site is pretty dead, it was just me and 27th and we couldn't keep it going on our own.
Apr 23, 2018 12:00:45 GMT
DaeSiggil: Oops, I know I haven't often helped by disappearing as I did. But still thinking about this place! <3

Verridith: Hey hon, love you guys but haven't seen anything happen since 2017 ;A; hope all are well! But have to remove you from BTACD's sister sites. I'm sorry! </3 </3 </3
Apr 6, 2018 12:22:38 GMT
Samantha: Exactly! It can be tricky, back home most of my friends are just from school, university or work. xD And it was lovely. They were all so lovely, the ones I was with spent the whole time talking about history, it was fun and edumacational.
Sept 30, 2017 10:02:29 GMT
27th: Wow! You got to have dinner with the authors? Making new friends is always nice. I know that struggle as I don't socialize like my peers.
Sept 12, 2017 18:00:11 GMT
Samantha: that great at doing haha (I don't like going out to parties and stuff, which seems to be the main way people my age socialise.)
Sept 11, 2017 23:11:00 GMT
Samantha: -looks at timestamp on last reply- Eeeek, apologies for the delay! But yeah it was AMAZING. My favourite author signed my favourite book, and we even had dinner with the authors one of the nights. Plus, I made some new friends, which I don't tend to be
Sept 11, 2017 23:10:37 GMT
27th: That sounds very cool! I would have loved going to something like that.
Aug 20, 2017 21:03:22 GMT
Samantha: It just means 'science fiction and fantasy.' So it was a conference for authors of these things, and scholars who study them!
Aug 19, 2017 21:10:27 GMT
27th: Glad you had a good time in Sweden! What is SFF?
Aug 11, 2017 16:08:48 GMT
Samantha: Sorry for the disappearance. I was in Sweden for an SFF conference- it was pretty cool!
Aug 11, 2017 10:48:27 GMT
Samantha: It's sad, yeah. We need more members to have more staff, we need more staff to keep the place active, and we need to have the place active to get more members. Sort of a vicious cycle. =P
Jul 31, 2017 16:46:13 GMT
Samantha: The problem is that the main person who likes to run contests, Riv, also has a tendency to disappear. xD And I don't have the time and the energy to run this place proper on my own.
Jul 31, 2017 16:45:38 GMT
27th: Yes, it is a lot of work. Though, I agree it could be worth the effort. As far as contests go, we've tried them here at DotE before. I don't know how well any of them worked but we it couldn't hurt to try.
Jul 30, 2017 5:53:42 GMT
R: Could try a contest?
Jul 29, 2017 4:40:04 GMT
shadow: Well. Yea. That also is a lot of work. It would be worth it though
Jul 28, 2017 4:12:51 GMT
27th: Well, recruitment would be key to that. Contacting the members we already have to try and get them to participate here would also be part of that.
Jul 26, 2017 15:52:29 GMT
shadow: I wonder what would happen if we tried to make it alive again
