Description:Sarkis Nightingale represents his blood family very well. He sticks to the profile of tall, lean, and beautiful with those vibrant, cerulean eyes and familiar dark hair, black in his case. Relatively tall, he towers above the crowd at an mighty 6'5". He is built with an average body. Unlike his nephew, Falkor in Acerbus Umbra, he is not awkwardly thin and lanky. Instead, his muscle definition shows years of labor when he worked as an adolescent. His face is defined handsomely, though it is beginning to age. His skin is fair but not as perfect as it used to be.
The extent of the true Nightingale family shares the dark hair and brilliantly blue eyes. In fact, he just looks like an older version of his nephew, though only by nine years.
PERSONALITY AND BELIEFS
Alignment: Lawful good
Religious Affiliation: Holy
Likes: hunting, archery, a good drink at the tavern, formal dinner parties hosted by his truly, gaining a positive reputation for the Nightingale family, helping children and animals (he really loves animals), practicing alchemy and creating potions, a day off from his political status, strolling through Kyla, full moons
Dislikes: wars, depressions, tough economic and political times and having to deal with them, his family's current reputation as insane, having to deal with bringing justice upon criminals (even if he believes it is right)
Description:Sarkis, in keep with tradition of Nightingale monarchy, makes a fine ruler (though that's not to say he and his fellow Nightingale monarchs have had their personality flaws). He does his absolute best to ensure the entire county of Tenesidus is safe and stable. All of his decisions are made with forethought and careful assessment. The count refuses to allow a mistake on his part to cause a huge problem to his county.
His political personality carries well into his social and personal one. In conversation, Sarkis is known to be fairly quiet and absorb every drop of information rained upon him and make quick analyses before responding. He is notorious for thinking deeply before speaking or making any rash decisions, and this goes along with trust. Everyone he meets receives a chance to prove their trustworthiness or lack thereof. He is very wary to give his trust to those he has just met, especially if in need of a favor, but often that favor goes as a test.
As a person, Sarkis is fair. He weighs things seriously and is very calculating, and he refuses to let bias get the better of him. He's a good, loyal friend, though he frequently puts his work before everything else, which can be annoying. Otherwise, Sarkis is a very nice man and a very caring spouse. He deeply loves Wynona, and he is quick to help her when she truly needs it though he is also careful to not take it too far.

Description:Eldingar possesses the standard build of a western dragon. He has six limbs, two of which are wings, and a long neck and tail with a long, narrow head and multiple protrusions that act as an offensive defense in addition to his scales.
His nose has two horns, similar to a rhinoceros, and he has a few more on the top of his head. The sides of his skull also have multiple horns, and his lower jaw has many spikes coming from it. He has a sharp, beak-like snout that can be used to jab. Furthermore, Elindgar's spine has more spikes coming from it. His tail lacks a spade at the end, but it is thick and heavy as opposed to long, thin, and whip-like.
Eldingar's overall color is such a dark indigo that it looks black, and indeed, he does have some black markings. His wing membranes, on the other hand, are thin enough such that they show the true purple of his color. His eye sockets glow a mild yellow, providing no proof that he has actual eyeballs, and he has no pupils. As a result, he is blind. He does have light-sensitive cells in his eye sockets that allow him to vaguely see shadows, but his vision is so poor that it's almost useless.
PERSONALITY AND BELIEFS
Alignment: Lawful neutral
Likes: flying, rain, water, storms, lightning storms, spring, summer, meat, Wynona (he really really loves her), perching on the castle, flying over the ocean, the ocean in general, the mountains
Dislikes: being on the ground, fire, intense heat, volcanoes, valleys
Description:A bit of a jokester, Eldingar enjoys having fun. At first glance, he may appear to be a grumpy, ages-old dragon who hates young'uns and just wants to be left allow to wallow in the self-pity and self-loathing of not being young anymore, but he really does enjoy company, making friends, and having fun. A favorite past time is actually playing jokes and pranking Sarkis as well as other citizens of Castle Kyla.
He can be serious, however, when he needs to be. When he is, Eldingar is like a whole other dragon. He's almost unrecognizable. Depending on the situation, he can become a quiet, submissive hound or even a roaring, screaming ball of rage and overprotection.
Eldingar deeply loves his family and his friends and is always up to make new ones. He likes taking the young military and community drakes on flights and teaching them air maneuvers, as he has spent so much time in the skies that he's a flight master.
