Setting
Year III | Fall
The leaves that have turned their auburn and crimson colors are now falling to the earth. Many trees are barren as the cold temperatures of fall set in. Many animals are fattening themselves for the winter to come. There is talk this winter is going to be a hard one so many are prepping early. The air is crisp and most mornings are accompanied by a thin layer of ice as it drops below freezing a few hours after the sun sets. The hides on many animals, especially the equines are thickening as the northern winds bring in a heavy chill. Many are nervous the rumors of a harsh winter is true. Those smart enoough stock up on fire wood and supplies in hopes they will be prepared. Nearly all the mirgatorial birds have flown to the warmest parts of Caeleste by now, almost a month ealier than normal!

    A wonderful asset to Caeleste as a whole! Not only does she dedicate her time as a staff member but she also spends a lot of her time being an amazing writer! She is very friendly in the chat box and her characters are very well developed. It seems everytime she steps into chat box or our discord, everything seems to light up! We are blessed to have her apart of the team and cannot thank you enough for your dedication and creativity!
  • Thread of the Month
    Standing in the Way of the Light
    A wild tale of two very dark creatures meeting for a second time... Xavier, possessed by 'The Darkness' tries to warn Resin about the demon inside of him but she is far too fearless to listen. Long story short The Darkness and Resin strike a deal... For twelve months the demon will on feed on her and then on the last day of the twelve months it will leave Xavier's body and never return. However it refuses to leave empty handed and as it leave Xavier it will take Resin's soul! It's a daring, darking, emotional and twisted thread that won't leave you dissapointed!
  • Couple of the Month
    Rhiannon & Wellington
    A very interesting duo that you would never expect to be friends. The noble, strong headed, and rather independant Rhiannon versus Wellington, an eccentric character that has a weak moral compass but hilarious nonetheless. Their dynamics make for very interesting and rather comical threads. You can't help but wonder why a mare like Rhiannon spends her time with a creature like him but then also thankful she is there to take care Wellington and save him from all of his shenanigans.
  • Character of the Month
    Xaiver
    A soul tormented by his own demons and terrible past, Xavier is a unique character to Caeleste. The poor boy seems to have endured Hell - quite literally - only to be further tormented in recent times. While he is not the monster that lives within him, his hold on the metaphorical beast seems to be waning. We can't wait to see what is in store for Xavier's future and whether or not he will shake the hold of his inner demons!
  • Quote of the Month
    Resin
    "Another time, perhaps. I believe we've both tormented him enough for today."

    A sad moment in the thread Standing in the Way of the Light where Resin turns down the Darkness, the demon within Xavier. However tempted, she has more respect for Xavier and tries to decline as delicately as she knows... It is a capturing moment where the apathetic Resin shows something for the damned Xavier.

Take my hand,
She is a goddess personified, she is glory and she is ethereal.

The goddess-come-mortal woman was blessed with a radiant creamy pale-gold base that shimmers in both the sun and moon alike. A light pink gathers around her eyes, her lips and nostrils and the depths of her legs that none ever see. While a slightly duskier gold touches her knees. Her hair that adorns her skin is silky and always warm to the touch, never minding how cool the air surrounding it may be. Her hooves are a peachy pink tone that glow dully even when no light touched them. Calliope's eyes are a blue so light that the mortals used to pray their sons and daughters would be blessed with the same colour. Their depth seems neverending and many used to say that you could lose yourself quite easily in them. They too seem to glow even when no light touches them, a beacon in the dark to bring all too her.

The hair that flows from her neck is long and a much deeper pale-gold to that of the hair upon her skin. Though it is thick and luxurious, it is almost always kept in a braid that is adorned with a golden clasp to keep it together. Her tail flows more freely, though that too is kept in place with a golden clasp in the very middle of the length.

Thin golden bands adorn her forelimbs and have been with her ever since she was reborn into this body. A golden winged headband holds back any loose hair from coming into her eyes that is adorned with the leaves of the trees from the ancient greek islands. From the very centre a jade droplet hangs, resting against her forehead and creating a warm glow. Lastly a creamy gauze cape flies freely from her shoulders, held in place by an intricate golden clasp that encircles her shoulders and is then held together at her chest by a thin unbreakable chain.

Take my whole life too.

Personality
If your gonna be the death of me,
GENTLE - VAIN - ARROGANT - ALOOF - CHARISMATIC - PASSIONATE - PERFECTIONIST - CHARMING - UNTRUSTING

Many cannot help but surround Calliope with her musical tones that sound like a symphony and the beauty and graces that she exudes so easily. Yet Calliope is constantly at war with herself, for she retained the majority of her memories from her immortal life, including when she was betrayed and killed by her mortal love. Though many of these memories conflict with the true love that was shown to her my her adoptive mother and father when she was born again. And so Calliope is a conflicted being, it takes her a long time to trust anyone, if she ever truly does.

Calliope believes she always has to be the perfect vision of beauty and grace, and so there is never any dirt on her golden hairs. She knows she has an ethereal beauty and uses it to her advantage - there has been many a time where she had used her body as a promise to get what she wanted, even though she was never true to her word. The vast amount of years that she has lived and experienced has proven to mold her into an aloof woman. Calliope is distant and rarely forthcoming to strangers, relying on whoever she is with to provide the conversation and only contributing when she really has too. Though when she does speak she rarely holds back, being rather blunt in her words and speaking whatever comes to her mind.

Even though she has gone through the trials of life and not always the good ones, Calliope is a gentle in her ways. She's not one to lash out with her limbs, she'd rather use her tongue as her defence if she really had too.

However it is becoming more apparent that the shadows lurking in Cali's heart are growing more and more evident. They are threatening to take over, to block out any reasonable thought.

Thats how I want to go.

History
Sick of my small heart, made of steel,
Calliope was the eldest of the muses and along with her sisters, she was one of the patron goddesses of poets and musicians. They lived in luxury above the golden clouds of the sacred greek summits and thought that nothing could touch them. The majority of the muses thought were above the mortals with their simple minds and simple ways of life - only ever bothering the Gods if they needed help to win over their love or to stab their enemies in their hearts. Many did not appreciate the power of words and the way a symphony could change the whims of even the most powerful and vindictive of minds. No, Calliope thought that her and her sisters were lost on mortals, their powers were too great and were never appreciated enough in her eyes. For she was immortal and had lived for thousands of years, yet no mortal had ever come close to changing her opinion. And so her and her darling sisters created a plan to show the mortal equines below just how dangerous words and music could be.

Half of the sisters were to follow Calliope in mortal form and blend in with those who prayed to them - forming friendships and even participate in romantic endeavours if it meant they could achieve their goal. From wandering the streets of the mortal world, Calliope soon found herself in a situation that she never thought she would find herself in - she was in love. As cliche as that may sound, a goddess falling for a mortal man, one that she may have even been willing to give up her powers for. Yet she never had to make that decision, for once she admitted who she was to the man in her bed, he soon bound her in chains and stuck a knife through her heart for her deceit and lies. Calliope had forgotten that she was in such a vulnerable position, for in this form she could die from a life-threatening wound.

Though her mother, the goddess of memory, was looking after her that day and protected her soul from entering the underworld. No, she was not for that world yet, her mother wanted her to live and thrive and hopefully have a much fuller life. So with her blessing and last caress, Calliope was put into the body of a foal who had passed at birth. The parents who had been sobbing over the loss of their child were soon gasping as the ordinary bay foal started to change to a golden hue. Wonder filled them as the child started breathing and life seeped into her little bones. When she finally opened her eyes, they were stunned at the light blue gaze that held their own with all the authority of an age old life.

It didn't take long for Selene and Mikah to realise that though she may be in the body of a child, Calliope was anything but. Though they took it upon themselves to teach her and enrich her with just how precious and wonderful their mortal world could be - for it was her world now too. Truthfully she had an idyllic upbringing with two parents who loved her and loved each other, they even kept her secret with them till they died. It was a sickness that overcome the small village that they were living in and only Calliope seemed immune to what what happening all around them. It was chaos - all around there were bodies that were crying blood, until it all seemed to have emptied from their carcass with the earth drinking it up like it's existence depended on it. Calliope guessed it was the doing of her sisters that still lived above the clouds, those who dealt with her 'death' with angst and retribution. Alas they branded the wrong mortals murderers. It didn't take long for whispers coming from the surrounding villages to reach Calliope's ears, whispers that branded her a witch for killing of her whole village. As she wept tears of her own Calliope fled, leaving behind the only two people who had loved her for who she truly was and had been.

CAELESTE YEAR TWO WINTER:

Calliope entered Caeleste where she was led out of the passageway by a young colt named Rhett. Upon leaving the young man, Cali visited the shrine of Greeshma with a request for a confidant. Luckily Greeshma looked upon her with kind eyes and once she completed her quest, he strengthened her bond with Thea, an ocelot kitten who she rescued from certain death. Leaving Thea to hunt, Cali entered Celestial City to find sweet food and comfort - however she found much more. She found Thyterios - a God who was once with her in Olympus and upon reuniting and talking, Thy offered Cali a place in his home in Dead Horse Ridge. Calliope accepted and is now living there, waiting to see what happens next.

Sick of the wounds that never heal.

Emotion Control (Primary Sorcery)
Yes I'll admit,
"Darling, let me wash away your insecurities and lead you to the edge of what you desire most."

At this 'beginners' level, Calliope does not have much control over her magic. She is better at making others feel the same as she is in that moment or has recently felt - this she is able to control for longer. Although she can also make a soul feel a different emotion though it only lasts a few minutes and leaves her fatigued and sometimes with bleeding from the nose.

When she is feeling a particularly strong emotion such as: Passion, jealousy, anger and depression, all control goes and those who are in close vicinity to her will be able to feel that emotion for a few seconds without her knowing. To Calliope will believe she still has the perfect mask upon her face, with no one knowing what she is actually feeling inside.

That I'm a fool for you.

Confidant
She doesn't need a hero,
CHANCE MEETING:

Calliope rescued the tawny kitten from certain death after finding her trapped under a log on her quest set by Greeshma. Upon rescuing her, they journeyed back to Greeshma's Shrine and he sought to strengthen the bond that had already been forming.

APPEARANCE:

Once she is fully grown, Thea will be smaller than average for an Ocelot due to her being the runt of the litter. She is sleek and lithe, with a surprising amount of lean muscle found under her skin. Her base coat is an orangey-brown that lightens in the summer months and deepens in the winter. Black stripes mark her face, surrounding her eyes and travelling down her cheeks to meld with those on her neck. Her eyes are a bright emerald green - strange for her species as they are usually blue or brown. Her nose is a pale pink and great whiskers sprout from her cheeks to aid her co-ordination. The stripes that adorn her short neck soon meld into an array of black medium sized spots which course over her entire body. Thea's legs are covered in smaller spots which dissipate before they reach her paws. Her tail is of medium length, covered in a range of black rings which reach from base to tip. Though she is only a kitten at the moment, Thea still moves will all the grace and poise as an adult, perhaps even more so.

PERSONALITY

Though young, Thea's personality is exactly as it will be as she gets older - some traits will just become more prominent.

REGAL - SARCASTIC - ELOQUENT - TRUSTING - INTELLIGENT - FIERY - GRACEFUL - STRONG-WILLED

She is a hero.
