YR TWO | Early Summer
The cool air of spring has come and gone what remains is the warmth of early summer. Many may notice it his hotter than it has been in previous years especially for the early months of summer. Animals are crowding where water is still to be found, but small ponds are beginning to trickle down to half their sizes. Trees are beginning to wilt and fade their colors no longer the once vibrant greens. Even many of the flora are fading and rather quickly. What will this mean for the whole of Caeleste?

  • Member of the Month
    Our fearless leader Carhartt is well deserving of this month’s member of the month. Despite going through hell lately she has found the time to re-write important sections of the guidebook and continue the day-to-day running of Caeleste. Always welcoming in the Cbox and up for anyting, her dedication to the site knows no bounds and we are incredibly thankful to have her.
  • Thread of the Month
    Battle | Drag me down
    The fight between Vithmiris and Destroyah for the throne of Shishira was an intense one. Both fearsome fighters, their battle made for an involving read, the whole thread written was very well. Vithmiris' dialogue with his confidant, Baskerville is certainly amusing and the two horses juxtapose each other quite nicely with Vithmiris' sharp tongue and Destroyah's calm determination.
  • Couple of the Month
    Thanantos & Nyx
    The whirlwind romance between Thanantos and Nyx appears to have come to a climactic end with the two splitting up after Thanantos told Nyx of his son with Vivian and Nyx decided to leave with her brother Erebus. We will all certainly be interested to see what happens next as they meet in the Lucent Sanctuary, surely this is not the end of their beautiful love?
  • Character of the Month
    The fearsome Emperor of Shishira, his snarky and outspoken nature make Vithmiris a fun and interesting character. Despite being the King of evil we all cannot help but like him for his sarcastic comments and general badassness. He is certainly at the forefront of our minds with his recent victory against Destroyah and we all can't wait to see what unfolds for Vithmiris and his kingdom in the future.
  • Quote of the Month
    "I’ll just toy with you over and over, no matter how many times you try. You will never get the fight you’re hoping for from me. Now, if you will excuse me, I do believe that I left the fireplace going."

Through the thunder
Inna Arlyn is no regular equine, nor is she even like those that tread Caeleste. She cannot tread; she has no way of walking. Instead of limbs ending in hooves, her forelimbs are long and slender, but they fan out behind her, fins strong and flexible to help steer her through the water. Where hind legs would be are pelvic fins, that help to steer and allow for agility in the water. Out behind her is her tail, long and sleek, ending in a magnificent tail that is deep and long, fins heavy - the tail able to propel her quickly through the water. She has two feelers in front of her pelvic fins, that help to guide her along the bottom of lakes. Her gills are located behind her cheek, spanning down her throat on each side - and yet her anatomy allows for lungs as well as gills, though they are small and cannot work well for long periods. Her anatomy, in the water, allows for her to dive very deep. Her dorsal fin is low and narrow to allow her to propel herself quick, though her neck is taller. Upon her forehead she wields two long horns, pointed and narrow. Her colour is lilacs, violets, deep and light, changing and allowing her to blend in bright corals. She is able to move through any kind of water, not needing salt or fresh, though polluted water she cannot be in.

When she gains the ability to shift, she will be slender and light by retain the majority of her appearance - her forelegs will end in purple hooves and her rear fins will become hind legs, but the rest will remain the same.
Through the Rain
It does not matter what there is in life; Inna is tolerant of so much. Having to spend so much time on her own takes the toll on her, but she is and always will be patient, caring. There is little that can scare her, having to deal with the predators of the waters - she too is a predator, an omnivore, who hunts and eats whatever she knows is safe. Yet for whatever may be lurking in the depths, she approaches it with a calm mind. Above the surface, she displays much more caution, but she cannot truly be worried - she knows how to conduct herself easily. She is only afraid of being alone forever; a terrifying prospect in her mind. Yet for this worry, Inna is a kind creature, friendly and life-loving, despite the horror that occurred when she was very young, and it is a trait she will never loose.
dreading battlefields
Once upon a time, there was a small band of horses who lived on an island, far from everyone and everything. They followed a bizarre religion, worshipping the ocean and their great God of the Waves, who it was foretold would one day drown them all. They would sacrifice their children often to them, once chosen at the turn of the year, and sent into the ocean to drown. If the child drowned quick, they believed they would feast and live well. If they child took a long time to die, then the blood was not pure and the God was trying to keep it alive, and therefore they would reap ill rewards for the year. They would pray at their church, build in sand and clay and rock, marred with dried husks of the fauna of the ocean.

The equids here ate the fish. They had great teeth, living off the bounty of the ocean. One year after a terrible drowning of a child who did not die easily, it seemed the ocean truly did turn on them. Those born on the island were typically duller colours, to blend with their island and surroundings. It was important to hide from outsiders, to never be a part of them. Yet one day, a mare was taken by what was a demon, and outsider, part of a renegade group who had washed up on the shore. He had survived, and he took revenge on them by taking her and ensuring she was with foal with his get before he allowed them to be found. He was slaughtered by the tribe and the mare was taken in, yet fenced in and left alone until her time came.

Beneath a raging storm, when the ocean swelled angrily, the filly was born. She was a vivid lilac, with only hints of her mother’s colouration and her mother’s eyes. The tribe decreed that she was to be the one drowned when the year turned, given to the God of the Waves as their sacrifice. While the elders wished the child to be killed immediately, it had been the will of the mother and those younger to give her a chance. She was given no name and she was raised in their way, but the year passed by quickly.

When the time came, she was taken from her mother. She heard the words, knew the terrible way that the children were killed but she didn’t know she had been picked prior, knowing it was a random decision. She screamed for her mother, wanting her, but her mother only watched in horror, surrounding by others who screamed obscenities, terrible things. Only the younger ones watched without saying anything, as the priests dragged her into the ocean and forced her under the water. It took a long time for the child to begin to die, as she struggled and kicked She took a deep breath suddenly and the water spilled into her lungs and she truly panicked. Something reached out to her right then, grabbing her soul and opening it wide.

By her magic, the child threw the priests away with tendrils of water. The ocean about her raged as a storm roared overhead, growing fast and angry. The rain beat down, and the child collapsed into the sand of the beach, water spilling from her nostrils and mouth as she lay there, almost dead as the tribe panicked and sought to save themselves from the anger of the ocean. When the sun rose, the child woke and rose to a scene of death and decay. Water pooled where it had not been before. The child returned to the water, sinking into it and only wanting to die. The same force that killed everyone on the island came to the child, reaching out and touching her gently, ensuring she did not drown. It changed her, giving her a new body, and reached out to her taking the form of a turtle.

It told her that the islanders time had run out. There were a group who had wound up there, marooned by a terrible king who only wanted to leave a few to die. They had hung on, their religion warping over time. The king and the world they had come from had died long ago, but they had survived on. They had changed so much over the time that anyone from the outside world as immediately killed for food or fear of what they might bring. The being told the child that she was not supposed to be here now; her life was supposed to be free and strong. When the islander tribe’s time had run out, given their last chance by making sure she was born and watching them turn on her, their evil and hatred for anything foreign to terrible, it couldn’t take it anymore. It unlocked the child’s magic, and sent her on her way to becoming what she was now. She learned that her sire was not evil, he had been a story concocted by her mother to protect her from the wrath of the Elders. Inna was the daughter of the God of the Waves - the last hope for the salvation of the Islanders. When they turned on her, so too had the wrath of the God of the Waves.

Now a being of the water, the deity and her father, to some extent, told her she would never walk on land again. The child cried, asking why, but she realised while this creature was saving her, it was a cruel thing. She asked one last question before she left – what was her name. The creature named her Inna Arlyn, the name of the woman who had tried to help the Islanders long ago, and who had been ripped apart by them. It was the last Inna saw of the deity and of this world. She fled fast and swift, and her past faded into memory, and then into history. She learned from others, becoming tolerant, having no desire to shun anything foreign to her like she had. In time she forgot even her own history, more so after being lost in a terrible ocean storm and slamming into a reef, which ripped her consciousness from her for a long time. When she woke, she had all but forgotten them; and she found herself drifting into Liridon’s waters after swimming and living alone for centuries, where she met Kellbane, and became a part of the world…

Inna Arlyn does not like to disclose nor speak of her early history. She was never one to walk on four legs, born as this being who swims and lives beneath the ocean. She drifted to Liridon, where she lived for a long time, in the sea caves and even falling in love with one who walked on the surface, despite being initially afraid of him until he revealed he was able to traverse the depths too. Yet, for all this, Inna has wandered the oceans for a long, long time. One day she will walk the surface, but for now… she just wants to exist.
