Good afternoon, my fellow readers of the realm !!! Welcome to the third article of " The Riders " ! I'm Kendel and together we're going to have an epic journey through the dragon-riders of the site. You will be able to learn everything about their dragons and the experiences they had from the moment they took their eggs until the flew on them. Today we have, with us, Vasilyssa Dyer ( Trainer of Weaponry ) and her beautiful dragon Vega ! I hope you all have a good time reading it !!!
1. How the idea to become a Dragon Rider came in your mind?
~ I honestly never imagined myself a Dragon Rider. I was dead set on being a Weapons Mistress, and just never really had another path in mind. Both my parents were skilled fighters and I was determined to follow in their footsteps. Now though, I couldn't imagine life without Vega.
2. How you got your dragon egg?
~ I got my egg in the normal way. I think I was 40 years old and they were parading all the elves in my city by the eggs, hoping one would hatch. For some reason, I felt like I needed to go through that line. Imagine my surprise when a pretty purple egg with silver lacing through it hatched.
3. When the little creature broke the egg, what were the first things it did?
~ Oh, now you're really pressing my memory. You realize that was over 130 years ago? Let's see, the first thing that Vega did was actually fall off the table. I don't think she realized how small the table was where her egg sat, but she took two steps and off she tumbled. I was still in shock that she had hatched, so I didn't even move to catch her. We laugh about it now. Then she marked me on my right hand.
4. How you felt the first time you talked with your dragon in your mind?
~ We were always pretty close in our minds. From day one we would lets our thoughts flow through each other, even if her's were just 'hungry' or 'tired' at first. When we first actually talked, it was amazing. I always thought I would be fine just learning how to use weapons, but Vega filled a hole in my soul that I didn't even know was there, as cheesy as that sounds. When they say your dragon is your other half, that is them underplaying it. I can't imagine being without her now.
5. Mention your favorite habbit. It might be flying on the back of your dragon or anything else.
~ Hmm. Besides flying with my dragon, because I can assure you that there is no greater feeling than the freedom of open skies all around you, I enjoy fighting and learning new weapons. I have been all over Alagaesia to learn weapons from all races and cultures. I also enjoy reading inside when it's raining outside.
That was all for today, hope to see you next time with more dragon tales !!!
