Niamh [Nee-iv]Age (Human years):
==========Stat Point counter:
Once given a project or task, Niamh sees it through to the end. She gives it her near-undivided attention, making sure that everything is perfect. She spares no expenses nor cuts corners in order to finish the job.
Niamh is a trustworthy dragon and doesn't go back on her word. If given a specific task, she won't disappoint. All promises and secrets are kept.
She can be quite the smooth talker and definitely uses her looks to her advantage when she needs it. Niamh's polite and friendly tone makes her likeable as a first impression. She can also be slightly flirtatious, but she doesn't take it too far in fear of actually getting interests.
Being a Crafter, Niamh pays attention to her looks on a daily basis. She makes it a point to look her best at any time, even during work. While she doesn't particulary hate getting dirty, she'd rather have clean scales.
Niamh typically doesn't let her true emotions show through over her business appearance, especially not fear. She covers this with her charm and no one suspects a thing.
Niamh is, overall, an approachable dragon. She is kind and friendly to all that she meets unless given a reason to do otherwise. Not one to cause trouble, she usually keeps to herself and her daily tasks or projects. She isn't very keen on fighting or getting into any altercations, so she stays out of other dragons' business. Her ear for gossip, however, can sometimes land her in a tricky fight-or-flight situation, of which she normally takes the flight option.
Despite her sociable personality, Niamh tends to stay away from other dragons. She is open to meeting others, but she doesn't explicitly go out of her way to do so. Still, she flashes a smile and tries. If she feels comfortable around another, she may even start to call them her friend, although so far not many have stuck around. Niamh has grown to enjoy spending time by herself and with her own thoughts. Next to crafting, flying is what gives her the most freedom and life, choosing to go on long flights to relax after a hard day's work.
She loves spending her time in the workshop and always has some kind of project to fiddle around with. While not everything she works on is commissioned or purchased, Niamh gives her all in the pieces she makes. Her drive to finish a project has even cost her sleep on multiple occassions.
Niamh can be very blunt, especially with critiquing other dragons' works. She can find anything to say about it, good or bad, and doesn't hesitate to point it out. In regards to a dragon personally, she doesn't realize how her heartless comments cause harm.
Once Niamh stakes a claim to something, nothing can take it away from her. Whether it's jewelry, a well-sculpted pot, or even another dragon, her jealousy can reign supreme.
While working, her instructions can sometimes be taken too far. Niamh's perfectionism gets on everyone's nerves. She can be controlling or overbearing at times, work-related or not.
While Niamh is open to receiving critiques on her works, she doesn't take them well and becomes very defensive, trying to boast her skills. When faced with a dragon she doesn't take to kindly, her rudeness really shows through as she makes herself look better.
Due to her past, Niamh has trouble trusting other dragons. Her inability to gaugewhat a dragon was thinking makes her paranoid and never lets anyone close to her. This causes her to push others away in fear.
From working in such a demanding trade, Niamh has gained some unpleasant characteristics over the years. If she starts to dislike someone or something, she doesn't beat around the bush in saying so. This often leads to rude remarks and hurt feelings, but she doesn't realize what she's done. She isn't one to apologize, either, until the other says it first.
Her competitive mind also gives her a boost in confidence even if her abilities fall short of the challenge. Not counting crafting projects, Niamh has often taken more bites than she can chew and usually ends up making a fool of herself as she tries to regain her pride. It doesn't deter her from trying, of course, which leads her to playing dirty and calling names. Her drive to be the best makes her lose points when she isn't given what she believes she deserves.
She can be very controlling in the workspace and gets on everyone else's nerves. She doesn't see how they can't follow her instructions, so she takes it upon herself to show them how it's done, usually finishing the project for them.
Born and raised in the Cautes Kingdom, Niamh lost her parents at a young age. From what she can remember, they were very emotional and sometimes unstable dragons. One minute they'd be sharing funny stories over a meal and then the next they would be fighting and often bring Niamh into the argument. She never could tell what they were thinking next and it gave her trust issues with other dragons. Her insecurity only grew when both of her parents disappeared. It was highly unlikely that they were killed; rather that they had both run away, abandoning Niamh. She never knew why they left, only that she wasn't important enough to be taken with them.
While she was old enough to take care of herself by then, she tended to neglect her health in her loneliness. It wasn't until she started tinkering with some of her possessions did she find an interest in crafting. She threw herself into the trade and soon began trying to get back into the world with her wares. After many years, she finally began feeling proud of herself and worked hard to move further, putting on an air of security and confidence while getting to know other dragons. She continued to stay quiet and mysterious in case anyone would try to break through to her.
She still manages to keep good company around her and keep her own secrets hidden.
. I probably shouldn't be getting into another Group (an RP one, no less) with how I haven't had much time to draw, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to draw dragons. I'll need to practice their anatomy some more, but I'm not complaining when it comes to these mythical beasts. Hopefully I didn't make Niamh too confusing or complex. I tried to actually make a good character that could leave an impression or have some character development as time goes on, but we'll see.
