Some study astrophysics or a field in quantum mechanics, some study in fields that are barely comprehensible to normal dragons. But, of course, you ask about what I want to study? Well, I guess I want to comprehend what allows us to comprehend. The brain is the only organ of the body we do not know every secret of, every nook and cranny of. And that intrigues me. The brain is like space, like the depths of our oceans to us. We know nothing about them compared to our knowledge of other topics. Neurons and nerves and gray matter, yet it contains more than the sum of its parts. I want to comprehend why.

Stormbreak is an intelligent young dragon with ambitious goals, dragons to overtake, and things to prove. They are NightStrike’s dragonsona.
Stormbreak is not at all what you'd expect the child of two vibrant tribes to look like.
They are gray, dark and bland and everything some refuse to see. Hints of blacks and whites may occasionally splash their scales near their spine and underbelly, but they are overall the grayest of grays.
Their scales appear like skin from a distance, but from inches away they are diamond shaped and as sleek and rough as sharkskin. The scales on their back resemble a snake's in terms of elasticity. They are a combination of unwanted creatures, at least, they see themselves as such with their smirking face and the tricks always up their sleeve.
They have few markings, but these markings are vibrant where their main form is not, coming in golds and blues and reds. Their ice blue eyes shine like the dim electric glow of neon signs in the night. They are a almost a warning sign on the streets, after all. Strangers give them weird looks.
Maybe it's careful way they walk, or the fact that they look like they always have something urgent to get to, or to their expressionless face, like a mask. They are quite a mystery to some, even in appearance alone.
Their attire can vary from formal to baggy to patterned and colorful. They have no apparent consistency in outfit choice but their love of feathers, jewelry, and black-as-night headphones.
powered by the same electrons as lightning
P E R S O N A L I T Y
Stormbreak's mind is their most prized possession. It is much more vibrant than their scales and can focus on many things at once, and is never silent.
The gears are always turning, and they are always planning. They would like for others to see this meticulous brain of theirs, but yet, they would not. Maybe they just want their intelligence acknowledged for once instead of their bluntness.
But, alas, sociality is something that most perceive as a necessity that Stormbreak just doesn't see the meaning behind. They will play the social game, and perhaps even win at it a few times, sure, but they despise it so.
They despise being labelled as things they're not based on the way they say things and not on what the meaning behind it is. They are not insensitive, no, they just don't have sugarcoating inborn into their pattern of thought.
They pride themselves in logic and knowledge, but they do find enjoyment in a few other things, such as pranking and their own special brand of humor. They especially love making puzzles and references to dragons to connect the dots, almost excessively so, but few figure out their meanings, which can cause the hybrid great sadness.
They do this to an almost unhealthy point, where they are coding their mental state and what they want of others in dots for others to connect instead of saying it outright.
Their pranks also follow this format, and can have hidden meanings behind the scares or the chaos caused. Because, at their core, Stormbreak is quite an organized dragon. But their order may well be another's chaos. As long as Storm can see all the steps ahead and to their goals and intentions, that is order.
These pranks can also be a part of their humor, which can be morbid, witty, and cynical all in one. It's a pity no one cares for their funny side much.
Their inflections can be monotonous when dealing with dragons at a distance but are normally varied when talking to or of something of great importance to them. They may also put on different social masks to suit the situation.
They hold their emotions at a distance sometimes, and they are a master at holding down what they feel, though others perceive their emotionlessness as anger. Stormbreak is easily frustrated by these false perceptions, which just perpetuates the cycle they started.
They hate themselves mostly; especially when they fail to contain an outburst or attack of emotion, anxiety, or panic. They have many mental issues that need a working through, but they would not elaborate more than this.
they can posses as much depth as the void
A B I L I T I E S
Stormbreak has many skills, some that are almost inborn at this point, and some that they still practice. They prefer to be good at something before they show the skill in public, so they can seem good or at least average at everything from a glance.
Their most glaring strength is their startling intelligence. Their clockwork mind behind their gleaming eyes is capable of so much, and they are much more intelligent and mature than the average dragon of their age that it is almost terrifying when they use these traits. They are leagues above, and consider college neuroscience textbooks as casual reading material.
They prefer the field of psychology (and neuroscience) above other science fields, but they are almost naturally knowledgeable in any science field you may drop them in. Mathematics is a learned discipline, but they are also good in it.
They are also an exceptional liar, as they are a writer, a storyteller, and a secret keeper. Their planning mind always helps them keep lies consistent and they are able to get around fully lying by twisting truths or not telling the full story. They are excellent at playing around with words, though it is in their morals not to twist facts in logical debate. Any other situation is open for lies, to them, though.
As far as tribal abilities go, Stormbreak got a mixed bag. They have no breath weapons, but they can breathe underwater and can fly very fast. They use these skills on almost a daily basis, so they remain strong and ready for use should the hybrid need them.
They are also decent at combat and fighting with weapons, as you have to be when venturing into the West alone. They are an excellent fight and chess strategist, so if they plan a battle beforehand, you will likely lose. However, when separated from their weapons and if they have no terrain or obstacles to use against you, it is easy to overpower them.
Stormbreak also has very acute hearing and sense of touch, developed from sneaking around without sight and their somewhat poor visual abilities (even in broad daylight). Their eyes are adapted to dim light and darkness, and they have almost complete night vision.
However, their daylight vision sucks. They have an awareness of air currents and use their photographic memory to memorize settings easily, which can help them not die when flying at breakneck speeds. Though, they do find a way to bump into everything while calmly walking lost in thought, so these skills are imperfect.
Stormbreak is also a decent artist and writer. They typically mentally profile dragons using this skill. They can be quite predictive.
They don't always use these skills for good. They are a prankster and planner, after all.
conscious is alive and varied
F L A W S
Stormbreak will typically not let other dragons see them struggle, and as a result, it can appear (from a distance), that they have no weaknesses or flaws whatsoever. This is far from the truth. Storm is just very accomplished at hiding what they don't want others to see. Bury it all underneath layers of puzzles, logic, and effortless question dodging.
They are not good at anything to do with sugarcoating, though they are excellent at faking it. They have a hard time being genuine when thanking or comforting others though, if they do not truly mean it. They also have trouble making friends, as they can be quite detached but also clingy simultaneously. They do better with making friends over the internet.
Storm is also an introvert, and can be very snappy and can struggle with keeping up their masks when under intense social pressure or when they have been out of one of their "alone" areas for too long. Certian dragons and personalities exhaust them more than others, though.
Sometimes, they also find it hard to accomplish tasks that are pointless or when they have no motivation to do them. These tasks are a burden on their mental state and can tire them out as quickly as any social interaction.
Stormbreak is also an insomniac, which can cause them to be quite tired and lethargic, and combined with social exhaustion, enough pressure can send them spiraling into a depressive state if the pressure keeps up, which can just end up making everything worse.
Stormbreak also has a wariness of other's expectations of them. Especially when these expectations are based off of something Storm is not. These expectations can frustrate them, make them cry, make them genuinely mad, and make them feel generally like giving up.
They do not like preconceptions that others have of them and will violently defend themselves with logic when one is brought up, almost to the point of discarding trying to be polite to gain something from it.
Stormbreak also has abandonment, betrayal, and self worth issues, but they would never pour that out to anyone they didn't know closely. They dislike amusement parks and fairs.
Storm also has an irrational fear of churches, but will go in one to further their goals. It just causes them great discomfort.
and it can fathom moral and immoral
W E A P O N S
Stormbreak lives close to the West, and by extension, the Ghost Forest. Since they are smart and also a collector of street-trinkets and urban decay photos, they have gathered (and built) themselves some weapons. They are also skilled at using them.
These weapons are made from stolen or cheaply-bought tech (shipped right in from Infinitesimal sometimes!) and are each one-of-a-kind. They do not make many nor do they sell these weapons. It makes them uncomfortable to use them for anything other than self defense or necessary action.
The main blades they always have are all retractable and are easily concealed by clothing or other accessories. These modified switchblades also have electrical capabilities and are tinkered with by Stormbreak's own hand, making them extremely efficient. They can put out differing charges by reading Storm's pulse and nerves.
There are two knives that are concealed at Storm's wrists, able to come out with a flick or purposeful tense of the muscles. The left blade is serrated and painful while the right blade is sharper and meant for surprise and deadly attacks. Both blades are equally dangerous, however.
Their most deadly switchblade is on their tail. It has the most electrical energy and can easily kill with the power up high enough. It is made for stabbing and slashing. It is thick, and while wielded by the SeaWing-strength tail of the hybrid, it can cause serious damage. It can also be covered easily if the hybrid folds the fins on their tail down on it.
Storm also has a pistol and a few other knives that they keep cleverly concealed in their pockets and leather jacket. Separating them from their weapons is hard, but it's even harder to spot their weapons until they are revealed.
a mind has memories that are as fluid as tides
B I O G R A P H Y
Storm doesn't really see a point in talking about the past, and they always summarize everything shortly anyways, so the details almost always elude them.
Maybe if they make a lifechanging discovery they'll care about a biography.
Stormbreak had an almost normal dragonethood. They lived alone with Akua for most of their life (they vaguely remember their father being seen a few times, but only from snuck glances from the doorcrack of their room), but there were a few hints and dashes of traumatic events, and that led to Storm developing anxiety when they were very young. Their current mental state is shaped heavily by some specific past events.
They don't like dwelling on the past too much, but they have always felt the need to prove themselves and accomplish something more with their life. They were always aware that it was going to be a short life.
They would much rather focus on the future. Their future. Any maybe impact the rest of dragonkind along with it.

Please ask to have a sona in here. I reserve the right to decline or not add them. I am open to roleplaying with Stormbreak at anytime! Feel free to have your characters interact with them; just ask on my wall!
Calignis: Storm is not sure how to feel about the other hybrid, since he is a friend of Elena and the two have only just started to become friends, but they admire his intelligence and his dedication to the Nightcry swim team. Neutral relationship.
Elena: Elena is one of Storm's best friends. The two are always up to something, and Storm is always keen on helping Elena with her goals. Storm appreciates her as a friend and hopes that they have many more fun times to come. Positive relationship.
Infinity: The two constantly chat over voice software about some thing or other, and they have many plans and ideas that they hope to one day execute. However, Storm would like to be closer with the younger dragoness. Positive relationship.
Jargon: Stormbreak considers Jargon at least an acquaintance, and considers her as someone to talk to when they are bored. They help Jargon a lot and have no qualms with any of them. Positive relationship.
Saburra: Storm has a complaicted opinion on Saburra, and would rather not reveal it. Negative relationship.
Semicolon: Are the dog closed? But we all know for sure the majesty of the black margic and the 🅱️alidity of 🅱️omnus. Perhaps the dog will one day be closed, but Semicolon will always be of the friendly variety. Positive relationship.
Tuatara: Storm likes talking to Tara. They haven't talked too much, so Storm has yet to form too much of an opinion, but overall it's going good. Positive/neutral relationship.
Wings: Wings is a strong figure in Storm's life, though the two talk less due to the Sky/Night hybrid being in college and storm taking an excessive amount of AP classes. They do have eachother's phone numbers and text occasionally. Positive/neutral relationship.
