Setting
Year III | Winter
The once auburn leaves and crimson colors are now gone, swept away by the strong winds leaving bare trees in its wake. The clouds also seemed to have swept in fast, plummeting the ground with snowflakes. All of Caeleste is quickly blanketed in snow and not just a thin layer of it either. The snow already reaches up to the knees of the more taller equines in most areas. Even the temperatures feel a lot colder than what they normally would be for winter. Snow storms tend to be hitting every other week or so, making all the habitants dreading what it will be like further into the winter. The rumours of a harsh winter are proving to be correct. Even the ice coating lakes are difficult to break through. Word is beginning to spread that this will be one long tough cold winter.

  • Character of the Month
    Antiope
    Antiope had an exciting month! After challenging for the Vasanta throne and receiving no response, she became the leader of the land by forfeit. Those in her land were less than pleased, but with her strong personality, she has risen above the negativity. Congratulations!
  • Quote of the Month
    Antiope
    "I am the sword and shield of this realm and I will do everything in my power to ensure the safety of all of you."

    Found in the thread for the realm, Antiope greets the horses of Vasanta as their new herd leader. When met with negativity, Antiope rises to the occasion and pledges her life to ensuring their safety.

Appearance

Ilk Reference Sheet || 3/4 Arabian X 1/4 Waterhorse

Her coat is a creamy white base colour. Her legs are a deep shade of purple, which is very vibrant. Her barrel has a strong pink tree like marking on both sides. The markings connect underneath her barrel, where the colour shifts to a darker purple, to match her legs. Her coat has a generally sparkly texture, almost as if drops of water are clinging to her coat, even if she's out of the water and all dry.

Her nose is a very soft pinkish colour, her hooves are a metallic dark steel colour, which sometimes looks silvery depending on the light. Ilk's eyes are a deep, rich pink colour. Her mane is resemblant of a seahorse's, this is due to her waterhorse heritage. It is deep purple to pink in colour. Her tail also runs from light pink (almost white), over a bright pink to a rich purple. Due to her waterhorse heritage she can breathe underwater, gills will appear just behind her cheekbone when she is completely submerged.

Personality

Ilk just follows life the way it flows. There is not much point fighting the current, as she well knows. Generally Ilk is kind to new beings she meets, although her fear and natural shyness often get in the way. She tries to treat them like she'd like to be treated, but all Ilk has really known from others (apart from her mother and grandmother) is derision and rejection. She gets the feeling she doesn't quite fit in anywhere. Not quite normal horse, not quite a Waterhorse, and many herds haven't let her forget it when she looked for a home.

Ilk feels lonely easily and is anxious about how others perceive her; which is not surprising considering the level of hostility she's faced during her lifetime. She’s a bit of a wallflower, preferring to hang back. This is mainly to avoid being made the object of a joke or a raging rant. However, once you get to know her she’s loving and glad to have a friend (not just glad, usually thrilled though she tries to hide that; it IS weird to start cheering when you make a friend after all). However often she feels she doesn't have the right to be called someone's friend, even if they say otherwise. She feels like an imposition, like she's expecting too much or being too presumptuous taking up their time.

Generally Ilk is a mellow sort of happy, maybe happy isn't the right term. Perhaps... at peace with her lot and used to always being alone and outcast? She's not prone to sadness, depression or anger. It is however, very hard for Ilk to let go of her anxiety and fear. Watching her mother being murdered by the herd, after her grandmother (who had protected them) died, and then having to run for her life has given Ilk PTSD like symptoms when she thinks back to it. Besides this her mind will constantly be filled with what-if's: What if they don't like me? I'm just a sin of nature after all... a half-breed... Why are they being friendly? Are they setting me up? Part of this anxiety and all the rejection she's faced is distrust at kindness. She doesn't quite believe anyone would like her or be nice to her. Ilk also has no clue how to handle someone being kind to her, as she's never really experienced it from others, save her mother and her grandmother in part. And even that was often not enough to shield her from all of the herds' ill-natured attacks.

When you first meet her you may have to be patient, as her nerves will likely get the better of her. She'll be stammering and stuttering, tripping over her words and generally scared out of her wits. If she does make a friend she's loyal to a fault and more than glad to assist them in any way they might need, even if it does push her out of her comfort zone.

History

Ilk was birthed by a half-breed mother, which led to ostracization in her herd. Her mother was the result of a tryst between a Waterhorse stallion and a pure blooded Arabian mare. The herd accepted the half-blood foal, though only grudgingly, because the dam held a high position (being Ilk's grandmother).

When this half-blood foal fell pregnant, the herd was suspicious. The lead stallion had never showed any interest in the odd mare, so who was the father of the foal? Was it a competitor? Ilk's mother refused to tell, much to the chagrin of the rest of the herd. Eventually it was found out the foal's father was in fact the lead stallion. This calmed emotions for a while. Though it was mainly Ilk's grandmother's influence that kept her daughter and unborn grandchild safe. She would step in and prevent the worst of the abuse, though not all of it. Ilk's mother wasn't very strong natured, and though she loved her child, could not do much to protect her.

When Ilk was born she looked more Arabian than Waterhorse, which led the herd to the conclusion that at the very least she was more "normal" than her mother. She still carried some odd splotches of colour and her eyes were "downright unnatural". After the death of her grandmother, when she was just three years old, Ilk's mother was murdered in front of her eyes. Without the stout old lady standing up for the two of them, the herd had had enough. Ilk ran for her life, her mothers blood dripping from her coat and by some miracle managed to escape the same fate. Ilk visited the Waterhorses that lived nearby, swimming to their underwater home in hopes of finding a place to stay. However they weren't any more receptive than her original herd and so she was cast out, left to roam the world alone.

She tried to join herds as she went along, but every single one of them would chase her away. Eventually she stopped trying and just hoped for safe passages along their lands as she travelled. Even that wasn't often gifted to her and she has the bite marks on her rump to prove it; though they've healed well and aren't easily visible.
