History:

Early Life:

Lyn comes from a nest of dragons that live in seclusion to in the mountains farthest to the north in the Badlands. Like most dragon broods his siblings fought constantly for dominance and his parents were pretty hands off. Even as a hatchling Lyn knew he was different, he didn't participate in the power struggles, nor did he collect random shiny objects just for the sake of having them. The young dragon went nameless for the earlier years of his life, by the time he, his brothers, and his sisters were old enough to leave the nest and return on their own all of them were breathing strong, healthy flames. All of them except for Lyn that is. He was always at the bottom of his brood, his wings took the longest to mature, his adult teeth were the last to come in, and he was the last to grow to his adolescent height, but even after all of maturation processes were complete he still hadn't found his flames.

As a youngster he spent his time exploring the terrain, searching for himself. Unlike most of his brood, he found joy in exploring old world ruins, unearthing their secrets, and collecting trinkets. During one of his rock climbing outing the young dragon came across an abandoned nest with a single egg in it. The stone all around the nest was scorched, so Lyn assumed that what ever animal was living there was forced to abandon their home or fight off raging dragons. On a whim he took the egg back home with him.

Within the week, the egg hatched and out came a baby brown falcon hen. He had never really seen a falcon before, but he heard stories about them from the elders of his brood. He remembered them being called masters of flight and fierce hunters. With his limited knowledge on the creatures he chose the name Inanna (Lady of the Sky) for her. That day, a life long bond was born.

During the night of his companion's birth Lyn watched a lightning storm. He was enraptured by beautiful lattices of energy passing through the clouds overhead. Leaving Inanna in her makeshift bed, he left the family nest to go skirt the charged clouds. The young dragon dipped and into and out of the massive grey bodies, raking his claws and dragging his wings through the as he went. Electricity arced across his scales, giving him a tingly feeling in his gut, the sensation was primal, almost as if he was suppose to take in the power of the clouds. After having his fun he landed back at the family nest, he body was tired yet somehow full of energy. On his way to his makeshift bed one of his sister pounced at him, startling and eliciting a bolt of lighting to fly out of his mouth. Needless to say, both dragons were surprised. His sister was the first to break from her trance, the young dragoness playfully bopped her brother on the nose and said "Lyn". He cocked his head in confusion at his sibling.

"That's what father calls the lights in the clouds," she said. "It's also what I chose to call you from now on."

He had been without a name his entire life, now that he had one he didn't really have a response. "I-I like the sound of that."

Later years:

Now with a name, old enough to leave the nest permanently, and having found his breath, Lyn set out on a quest to find purpose in his life.

For the next several years Lyn and Inanna explored caves, climbed mountains, and sacked ruins. They built up a large and unique horde for themselves, but unlike most dragons, Lyn felt nothing for all of his gems and shiny trinkets. What was the point of all those amazing things if no one but him was going to see them. Seeking something interesting he and Inanna packed up some of their horde and flew to the relatively close city of Talonopolis. As expected his welcome was rather, cold, but eventually the city warmed up to the idea of a dragon being around. It didn't take long for him to realize that griffons and ponies used currency to obtain what they wanted so he took a job as a courier, it wasn't fun, but it was different and it allowed him to afford a place to live and food to eat.

During his time in the city he came across the Museum of World Treasures. The inside of the Museum was breathtaking, he had never seen so many wonders and ancient treasures in his life, both he and Inanna's eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. The museum's curator saw the pair ogling the exhibits. The griffon, Hunter, gave Lyn a walk through of the entire building. however he ended on a sad note, he told Lyn that a large amount of the building was unused so the government was going to downsize the place. Thus cutting down on the space for new exhibits. Hunter said that the Aquelian government didn't think that there was much else to be found so that the space could be put to better use.

Lyn was devastated by this revelation, he had just found something new and thrilling, but its growth would be cut short because they where finding anything. At that moment, Lyn though about the stuff he had brought in his pack, to him it was just cool things he found in ruins and caves, but perhaps it could help this place. He showed Hunter what he had with him and the griffon nearly fainted. According to the griffon the trinkets that he had with him were extremely rare and valuable each piece warranted it's own exhibit. Hunter and Lyn worked out payment for the items and after receiving his bits the dragon turned to leave. Hunter stopped him and said that what he had sold him was just a small amount of history and many of the exhibits that his contribution had started were far from complete, so as additional thanks he offered him a permanent job as museum curator plus generous pay for any new items he finds and gives to the museum. Lyn accepted the job on the spot, it was everything he wanted: rewards for doing what he loved, and an audience to show his findings to. That day he quit his courier job and from then on become a full time explorer/part time museum curator.

Character Summary:

Personality: Lyn is a go-person type of dragon. He believes that if you want to try something you should stop talking about it and go try it, and if you think that something thought impossible is possible go prove the world wrong. Because of his hobbies and interests he tends to make friends easily on both sides of the spectrum, his knowledge on old world history lets him bond with the scholarly and his expeditions give him something in common with thrill seekers. He can be quite talkative and sometimes a little hyperactive since friendships and close interactions outside of his parents, brothers and sisters is a fairly new experience. Lyn is always one to issue or accept challenges, be they of body or mind, he intends to come out on above the competition. Many of the griffons that know Lyn know that if you need the dragon's help he'll be there.

When not at the museum or playing with Inanna Lyn is an extreme sports buff, it come's with being an explorer. Even though he has wings, he prefers to climb mountains, and if there's a deep dark cave, you can expect Lyn to dive into it. When he's not risking his life Lyn also puts in time at the local libraries and tries to better his reading, he loves to learn about ancient civilizations and the things he finds, but it can be difficult with his level of literacy.

As much as he enjoys working at the museum, Lyn would love to have his own exhibition hall to show off the rarities he finds, somewhere he and Inanna can chronicle their accomplishments for all to see.

Prideful, arrogant, and stubborn, Lyn still manages to fit heart of gold in his chest, even if you don't like him and he knows it, Lyn will greet you with a toothy smile

Flaws: Sometimes is single minded, can come off a bit too strong and intimidate others by accident. Sometimes doubt's his decision to leave the badlands come to the city because he misses the freedom of doing whatever he wanted whenever he wanted to. He has a slight problem with authority, in the badlands the strongest tells everyone what do to, but in the city power isn't a measure of who you can beat up, so Lyn feels that alot of the griffons and ponies in charge aren't worth their salt and has a tendency to look and on them. Despite being able to soar above the clouds, Lyn is still a pretty terrible flyer, his endurance is good but that's about it. For all of his intelligence and problem solving skill Lyn is a poor reader(except maps), and mathematics just completely stomps him, he really needs a tutor, but is too embarrassed to say anything. Lyn while prideful and a little hard headed,is not a fool, he's seen the looks he gets sometimes and knows he's on thin ice, everyday he makes sure he acts his best, the fear of wronging someone and being exiled nags at the back of his head everytime he prepares to speak.

Additional: Part of his job training was learning about old world history, as a result he is extremely knowledgeable on the subjects of ancient civilizations, magical artifacts, and geography.

Just a few things a SRPH pointed out about this app.

First, no numeral age references. Second, they'd like to see more detail here. The more you write about the char's personality and history, the more those who read this app will know about them!

Just fix those issues and this app should be good to go!

:D:D:D

Hi there! :)

This app is really, really close to where I'd feel safe to stamp it. However, while I see that the application has been expanded some, but not really in the areas we were hoping to see. The history is rich and detailed, however the app is kind of lacking in character detail. For the World of Equestria RP, the focus really should be on character first. As such, we're gonna have to ask that you expand the personality sections of the app.

Elaborate more on his interests, hobbies, dreams and goals. Give us a little more detail on flaws and fears. Anything you can add to give us a better sense of who the character is. Feel free to take a look at the application form to help give you more ideas as to what to add.

Hope that helps. ;)
