Overview

Plato's "Phaedrus" is a dialogue between Phaedrus and the great Greek philosopher Socrates. Phaedrus has been spending the morning with Lysias, the celebrated rhetorician, and is going to refresh himself by taking a walk outside the wall, when he is met by Socrates, who professes that he will not leave him until he has delivered up the speech with which Lysias has regaled him, and which he is carrying about in his mind, or more probably in a book hidden under his cloak, and is intending to study as he walks. The imputation is not denied, and the two agree to direct their steps out of the public way along the stream of the Ilissus towards a plane-tree which is seen in the distance. There, lying down amidst pleasant sounds and scents, they will read the speech of Lysias.

    Oureyia Bio

    I normally use a double result for OOC, but in hurries I will put brackets after or before my main paragraph :)

    Name- Oureyia(or-ray-ee-a) Ory will pass as a nickname.
    Age- She is above childhood, although not by much. She doesn't track her years, so no one can say for sure.
    Gender- Female, although she doesn't mind either way.
    Personality- She is a pacifist, but that is reserved for only fellow sentient creatures, whether it be a talking pigeon or a wise old man. She isn't shy, but doesn't like speaking.
    Description- She is a furred dragon, a vibrant green with splotches of dark green and brown. With very large ears similiar to a horse or donkey(that perk upright), she has black ram horns that curl over them. She has a white locket marking on her chest similiar to a cat. Ory has a mouth on the end of her tail that is brainless, sightless, and always starving. She must feed both her own mouth and her tail's.
