Lilting Refrain Brown Jefferth

Slightly undersized, this brown seems to fit more with his blue clutchmates than his brown ones. His frame is sleek, clearly built for speed more than anything else and his slightly overlarge wings allow for strong take-offs and sharp manouvering. The tips of his toes, nose, and tail are nearly white and his coloration fades through seemingly every shade of brown, even hints of bronze and gold on some ridges, as it moves across his body in waves and eddies. His wingsails are large and billowy, though they will easily support his weight, and of the lighter shades of brown dusted with grey and the occasional spot of green.

Egg Name and Description

Signed Parchment Egg
This smooth, ovoid egg is bathed in the soft beige-brown of worn hide. At first glance it appears to be marred, perhaps painted upon by the Weyr's youngsters, but closer inspection reveals that each brown-black blob is a distinct signature of varying size and length, but certainly these are not Pernese names.

Hatching Message

Impression Message

The gentle stochatto of an agitated violin enters your mind, but says nothing. Then it retreats. A few moments of silence follow, then it returns, trilling softly along the e-string, You are he! R'cor, I am your Jefferth and we shall make beautiful music together!


Jefferth is generally a calm and collected sort. What he lacks in size he makes up in daring, doing anything to help, so long as it doesn't require public speaking. He won't vocalize often, or speak to many except his rider, being a tad on the shyer side, but those he cares for will always know that he does so.

Mating flights will be a particularly fascinating realm. When he's younger he may seek out many mates as most dragons do, but eventually he'll settle on that perfect one. It doesn't mean that he won't rise to chase others, but his heart simply won't be as much in it.

As he grows older, Jefferth will truly blossom into his own dragon. Saving and helping people is a must for him, both emotionally and physically. He'll always be there to help even those who have insulted or hurt him. Truly a caregiver at heart.


Jefferth's mindvoice is a veritable cornucopia of sound, though the violin continues to lead the orchestra. The level and quality of the music changes with his emotions. When he's happy the music is light and lilting, when sad it takes on a more sombre note and on and on through the emotional range.

Tremello Violin enters softly, a mere twinkling in the back of your mind as gentle blues and whites filter across your vision. All will be fine, the wrongs righted.

Tremello Violin plays more strongly, exploring your mind, your ideals. It questions quietly if you are on the side of right. On its side. Will you fight for freedom?

Tremello Violin receedes softly. Follow me on the path to righteousness. Bring all people independence from tyranny! Then it is gone, asleep in the arms of comfort.


The theme for this clutch was historical movies. The Signed Parchment Egg was based on the movie version of the musical 1776, which is based on the time around and leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independance in Philidelphia ( ).

The inspiration for the original touch messages and Jefferth's mindvoice came from the character of Thomas Jefferson as he's represented in the film. A clam, level-headed and educated lawyer who plays the violin and loves his wife more than anything in the world.

The inspiration for his external features comes from the violin itself and are meant to be a manifestation of the lilting refrain of music in his soul.

His name was taken from the name of the character on which he was based.
