An albino animus. What were the chances?
Truthfully, Jackalope could've told you. An intelligent one, he was, though rather strange. Quiet, antisocial... a cunning, angry, hateful look hidden in his red-pink eyes; unjustified anger sparking within his pure white scales.
Nonetheless, animus status shot him up to the higher classes of SandWing society. Rumors spoke that Queen Isfet was trying to craft a superweapon with her new toy--er, servant--er, friend. My, what a violet one she was... Brutal and merciless.
Then, when two moons were full, Jackalope and Isfet disappeared. Nobody knows how. Nobody knows why. Isfet had no daughters, so her sister, Ma'at, took the throne. Crisis of Isfet unleashing chaos all over Pyrrhia with her little toy averted.
That was nearly a hundred years ago.
Two years ago, a pyramid was discovered. One year ago, they found the entrance and writing perfectly scripted in hieroglyphs:
"Of Myth and of Chaos. Of White and of Sand. Of Peasant and of Crown. Seek our reward. Find us if you can."
Six months ago, Queen Hathor of the SandWings posted a request:
"Summoning six dragons: three of greatest courage, three intelligent, skilled archaeologists, one animus or prophet. Reward will be paid, of course. If interested, make your way to the SandWing Stronghold."
You were given your task.
Now you and six other dragons are marching into the unknown ancients of a mysterious SandWing pyramid that seems to reference and unstable animus and a brutal queen.
-Yes, this has a structured-ish plot. I'll be controlling major plot things (i.e: finding clues, discovering artifacts, what text on the wall reads, etc.).
-This takes place 300 years after the War of SandWing Succession. This means that Jackalope and Isfet disappeared approximately 200 years after the WoSS.
-Roleplay will pick up with all dragons standing outside of the pyramid, the door opened, as they prep to go inside.
-Only one character!
-Saves last 24 hours. You can ask for an extension of up to 72 hours (three days).
-I'll be controlling Isfet and Jackalope, if/when we get to them; they don't count towards my character count.
-Same-gender shipping is allowed.
-Try to balance the genders, please.
-Hybrids are permitted, but no more than three tribes and not every character can be a hybrid.
-Try not to repeat the same tribe/same hybrid as another person.
-The animus or prophet CAN be both; however, if prophet, s/he/they must be of half-NightWing or pure NightWing blood and CANNOT have mindreading.
-Aside from the prophet/animus, no extra powers (fireborn, iceborn, venomborn, mindreading, etc). The only exception is a fireproof MudWing.
-General RP rules (no mary-sues, watch your op-ness, don't powerplay, don't godmod, don't be rude ooc, etc.)
-Be descriptive in your form please.
-If you have a PoV color, mind putting it in other with a word relating to your character?
-I reserve the right to reject a character
-I can alter these as I see fit :U

Special skills/powers (if any):
Gender (pronouns): Female (she/her)
Sexuality: Bisexual, prefers males
Appearance: Pale yellow scales, similar in color to papyrus paper; obsidian black eyes; white horns and talons tipped with black. The venom barb on her tail is dark brown; her wing membranes are kind of whitish. Wears a shocking amount of jewelry: papyrus leaf earrings in both ears, necklaces with star charts, bracelets inscripted with numbers and mathematical formulas.
Personality: Seshat is extremely intelligent; she can tell you almost anything you want to know. Regarding book smarts, that is. She might be intelligent and logical, but sometimes Seshat lacks street smarts and occasionally seems to be without simple common sense. Values the truth above everything else and will diligently search for it. Seshat tends to be skeptical at first, until something can be proven. Overthinks things--a lot.
Spot: Archaeologist 1
Special skills: Fluent in reading ancient hieroglyphs
