(THIS WHOLE PAGE IS A WIP FOR A BIT)
A small, medium built, grey scaled adult dragon. Teal stripes. Light blue chest plates. Dark blue, cat-like eyes. Expressive fins. Slightly darker grey tongue and inside of mouth.
Seemingly generally disinterested, tired, and a bit snarky, that's really more of a worn down outward shell. They don't take long to make friends, although true trust takes a certain kind of bond to form.
They're a caring being that is always there to protect others, as long as they are aware of it. They tolerate a lot, but come back with quite the vengeance if you're a really bad person.
Having fallen into the trap of being quite the monster in the past as the only way to cope with issues, they have since learned to be kind as much as possible (past their general sarcasm and introductory snark), and try to help those on a hellbent path.

Cynny was born somewhere on the main continent, in 209 BR. By some unlikely circumstances, they became lost from their nest, and ended up alone in the wilderness. As their situation left them starving and cold, a kind helian dragoness, Caelhisiia, flying nearby spotted them, picked them up, and took them back to Chiconis.
They lived with Caelhisiia for the first five years of their life, reading the books in her library and playing around chiconis and the safer nearby areas. Until...one day, their adoptive mom never came back home.
It was only much later in life that they learn about how her trips she was always taking were for the army in the war against the aegis, and the time she never came back she had fallen in battle, despite her pretty admirable skill. Even without that knowledge, however, all young Cyn saw was loneliness and fear. Their mother gone, and their hope of seeing her again ever waning, the small hatchling fell into a deep, long, and miserable sleep in the cave of their mother.
By the time they wake up, nothing changed fundamentally, nor was their mother back. Cobwebs covered both their body and their home, the books yellowed and even ruined in places, after an earthquake or some other event had caused water to leak over them. ..Confused and alone, they leave, deciding there is nothing left for them there.
Over the years, as their home cave crumbles and ultimately disappears, the now older hatchling takes to exploring the land and learning to fight and craft. Their magic is pretty terrible at this point. They learn of the ongoing war and decide that even small dragons like themself maybe of use. And so they train and explore.
They start meeting their actual friends in the training grounds of New Trismus, and later on join a guild, in which they meet the person who would become the most important in their life. The black dragon Daemonar, to whom they form a quick and strong bond.
The two hatchlings train and explore together, getting in all sorts of mischief. Dae goes missing for a while, then.
..One day, they fall asleep again, in the depths of a cave they themself have started digging. Many years pass, and they awaken at the start of the last century before the Ritual.
They once again run into Daemonar, and they complete their adult rites together (although with a delay on Cyn's end, as Dae goes first) and ascend. Things are good for a while..until suddenly everyone they knew, Dae included, ends up disappearing unver varying circumstances.
Feeling lost, they start exploring the one place Dae and them have discovered together - the deadlands - which had pulled them in witha strange fascination.It was something Cyn never could, and still cannot explain. Perhaps the energy there was so loud something in their bones wanted to know more - perhaps a strange pull to danger. Regardless, they fall asleep on a high peak, upon which, somehow, no one finds them for quite a number of years.
They reawaken around 50 BR, where they once again run into Dae. ..Foolish and young, the two of them end up accepting the power and corruption of the blight into themselves for similar reasons, which brings about a new, strange, and dangerous chapter of their lives.
Despite the blight and its quite evil impulses, they still manage to befriend and get close to a few people, including Racktor and Silverblaze, whom they end up growing very close to, despite everything.
However..this entire period is characterized by malice and torture and deeds they are to this day ashamed of. Dae falls to the sleep for some years as well, during which their malice grows and pain is all they find comfort in. When Dae returns, they step wrong, and there is a trial (that they escape, but its inpact is the scare itself). However, after quite the long time of these things, the sleep takes them as well again, and they don't wake up again until barely a couple of years before the Ritual.
When they do, both them and Dae get the blight cured with the help of Dae's father, and a long arc of the both of them trying to be good to people and redeem the many years of bad deeds starts. LungTien is the first person Cyn convinces to trust them, and it is him who speaks up for them and assures the others that they are indeed a better person and see their mistakes.
Then, the Ritual of Everlasting brings the Gift over Istaria, and when a battle that they went into proved to be way too much for them to handle, Cyn finds themself as one of the lucky ones able to come back from the dead. This comes as a shock but also as a second chance from fate itself, so Cyn begins trying their best in everything they do. Helping the empire and helping fight the blight, and resupply people, and helping young hatchlings. Eventually, they find someone they actually love, but at the end of a sudden falling out with both said love and Dae, they go back to sleep in a cave they dig in the desert,around the 10th year after the Ritual. They reawaken in the present time, to a world they no longer know quite so well, and to the task of learning how to Live again.
They are now trying to learn what it means to Live again, with or without others. Learning kindness and patience. They can nowadays be found in the lair of a new friend (Othriax's lair in Selikoth), around Chiconis and Dralk, or in the desert, and are usually only out and about when they want to socialize. They're always up for landing a paw, despite their tendency to hole up somewhere for longer periods of time.
They're trying their best.
-This bio is way too freaking long and I have too much story for this asshole.
-They have several pets they keep at their lair, except for when their beetle, Dusty, is needed for crafting.
-They own a scarf they wear around sometimes in the winter.
-OOCly their name comes from Cynder, because I was 11 when I made them so shush xD ICly they're named after cinders because they're so ashy
-they started out as she/her but since they're so close to me and I'm a trans person (they/them agender masc too hi) they figured out this fits them more during their depression nap in the desert.
