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.

Appearance




Sounds like: Crispin Freeman as Alucard, from Hellsing.

The blackest darkness envelopes the monstrous creature, an aura of terror and a life of ferocity shroud his very being in a way that sends shivers down the spine by just being in the same room; whether it’s his soul-piercing fiery gaze, his wicked grin of sharp teeth that hide behind dark lips, or the foreboding darkness of his dark coat, cruelty and horror emanates from his core. He stands taller than those of where he originated from, coming in at 17hh, and is reasonably lithe in structure; with Tersk blood as his lineage, he has a refined head and large expressive eyes - eyes that are usually set in an expression of indifference or an eagerness to terrorise, although are capable of looking at another with gentle love and affection despite their terrifying sunset red and orange appearance – as well as a well-structured body of fine slopes and muscles with strong but slender legs. This body is vastly black in overall appearance, although a deep red dappling like blood stains can be noted around his front knees, shoulders, hips, and barrel when in the sunlight. The only other noted colour upon this creature is two small white coronets on both left ankles, settled neatly above black and deep red hooves that are as sharp as razors. Truly, though, what really lends itself to the overall wickedness of his demonic stature is that of his exceptionally long pitch black tail and the mass of seemingly anti-gravity hair cut short down his neck but left to grow long and flowing down over his face, concealing his features almost all of the time. At times, varying upon the form of which he takes, his mane may appear to vary in length. He is not something anyone would wish to see in the shadows of the night, for his eyes always look thirsty for blood.

Later on, once he picks up shapeshifting, he will have some alternate appearances to be listed here. He will sometimes use it to shift into a bat, as well, although isn't against trying out other forms (such as a crow, or a snow leopard).

Personality


Sounds like: Crispin Freeman as Alucard, from Hellsing.

Vindictive, egotistical, conceited, scornful, sarcastic… These are all traits that reside within Vithmiris, for one reason or another. His heart is as dark as his soul; he cares not for what others think of him, and relishes the thought of a mortal fight, but also harbours a deep disgust for those who seek out meaningless killings. Although, what truly classifies as meaningless to this monstrous creature is hard to accurately classify. He enjoys being cruel in his fights, preferring greatly to humiliate and torture his opponents in violent ways before killing them; it is also mostly during fights that his egotistical persona inflates, and he will taunt and belittle others for the sheer amusement it brings him. It is rare, however, for him to engage in fights that he sees there being little to no entertainment in.

Despite all of his many flaws, though, he has a more tender side. Many would assume this would be something a monster such as he would hide, but he finds no shame in showing public affection to she whom he adores. Slythe is the only creature he will listen to; most of the time, usually in his own little way. He is wild in his ways, and cannot be tamed entirely. But he cares for her deeply, and should another disrespect her in any way, shape, or form; he will quite happily chew their face off. Literally.

There are also times where he shows pride in others, which is usually in the case of someone achieving something great they set out to do; be it friend or foe. It can also be noted that there is a deep sadness within his lost soul, with a slight touch of envy for the way in which mortals lead their lives; perhaps, though, it is nostalgia causing such emotions.

Surprisingly, Vithmiris can conduct himself quite civilly now that he is in a position that demands it of him. It feels awkward and out of character most of the time, but he usually manages to treat others a little more respectfully than he would, were he not Shishira's emperor. But it is purely for the purpose of gaining the trust and respect of his citizens, more than actually caring about them on a personal level.

Something to note is his fluctuating sexuality; he is realistically demisexual, but this is only in regards to true relationships, like the one he has with Slythe; however, he dabbles in a more polysexual nature when it comes to general screwing around for fun or spur of the moment, or to relieve some much-built up tensions.

History


There is no record in any archive that could pinpoint the time in which this creature became the monster he is now, nor how he came to be as such. He has simply always been, so it would seem; of course, this is not entirely true, as all things start somewhere, but where that point in time is, none would ever know except himself, and all he remembers is the clutches of death and a blood rage.

His early years were spent waist-deep in the accumulated blood of endless wars, his spiritual faith all but abandoned, left behind him just as the bodies of which he had murdered, and those of whom he had once loved. There was a brief, in his terms at least, restful period where he did naught else but lounge about, either in the castle he called home, hidden within the valley of a mountain range where few ever dared to venture, lest they meet their untimely end should they encounter the demon himself; or stalked the nearest villages at night, taunting the inhabitants for amusement.

Eventually though, all of his terrorising lead to the extinction of the mortals within all decent travelling distances of his home, and he was left alone to his own devices, mostly sleeping away his endless life in the darkness, bored, and disinterested in all things.

Perhaps a century or so passed when Vithmiris awoke from his long slumber; his castle, unsurprisingly, had fallen into disarray with many areas of the roof and multiple walls having caved in, letting in the ice and snow from the mountains. It was upon seeing the depressed state of his once magnificent home that he decided to leave it. Where he was going to go, he had no idea. There was always a chance that he may return one day, evict whoever or whatever may come to live in it in his absence, but that would all be dealt with as necessary.

In the first half century of wandering around, he happened across the most brilliant mare. It was only by chance, as he was passing through the area, but discovered what appeared to be something akin to a gang, attacking her. She looked as if she were made of the moonlight itself, a prize to be sure, which was potentially why they were after her – he didn’t really know, but he also didn’t care – he simply flew into action, sharp hungry teeth ripping into their flesh with ease and ending their miserable lives; quickly, for most of them, for they were not worth his time to torture, but the one who had inflicted the most damage upon her pearly hide… Well, he suffered quite gruesomely before meeting his demise. When they all finally lay in pools of blood, Vithmiris awaited the time when the woman would once more awake, and for purely for selfish reasons, to start with at least, he remained with her, protecting her.

Their time together eventually resulted in him rediscovering a side of himself he thought long lost; a deep affection arose for her, more than just for her looks, but for her entire being. He devoted himself to protect her, to be her tool to use as she sees fit, and although he gives her lip like he does all others, he is more gentle and caring towards her, and will do anything she wishes of him; usually.

His time so far in Caeleste has been rather fruitful. Unbeknownst to him, his abilities of self-regeneration that were halted during his passing through the passage have since returned and increased from their lessened state. His relationship with Slythe has progressed somewhat, to where she is at least now aware that he will not call her his mate or mate with her until she becomes a full vampire. He has offered his services to Shishira, and has obtained Dead Horse Ridge as his own where he found what he called the Bloodfall Citadel: a fort and castle with living quarters and even a battleground. He can now show Slythe the life that she deserves to live, instead of that of a vagabond, or worse, what she was before he came into her life.

In Winter of year 2, Vithmiris made a challenge against the leadership of Dead Horse Ridge. When no one answered his call, he took the Ridge for himself and Slythe, and is still currently building his newly acquired kingdom.

Regeneration (Primary Sorcery)



Due to the unknown amount of souls he has consumed over his lifetime, Vithmiris has the ability to use these to his advantage when injured. Each injury or wound, depending on severity, does not heal exactly, but rather regenerates entirely. Sometimes it can be a tricky process if the problem is large enough, like growing a head back after decapitation - which at this point would require a much higher sorcery level - but to fix himself up after a simple battle with basic injuries, it doesn't take too long.

Typically he cannot use this to aid others, except where they share his blood, such as the half-vampire Slythe. If she is injured and there is no way simple healing will fix the problem, she can consume some of his own blood and take a small portion of his power into herself so that his blood may do the work on her. This can also be a tricky process if not done carefully.


Minor to medium injuries are more likely to heal instantly, or rather quickly, depending on severity. Scratches, bites, cuts, grazes, minor burns, and other such simple injuries will regenerate straight away, whilst more serious gouges, slices, or other such deeper injuries will take a while longer yet.

When used to help Slythe, his blood works a little faster than before, and to heal minor injuries it will now only take up to 10 or maybe 15 minutes. Larger injuries will still take hours or days and is still a tricky and an uncertain process.


Simple injuries and wounds heal within minutes now, and larger injuries (depending on the type, location, and actual severity) can regenerate anywhere from 15 minutes up to 48hrs. Severe injuries like broken bones may begin to heal initially, but can take up to a week to fully regenerate; it does, however, alleviate most of the pain during the process. Such wounds as chunks of skin and/or muscle missing will begin to regenerate reasonably quickly, renewing itself from the inside-out, but can take up to an hour or so to fully return to normal.

Note: He is keenly aware of how much damage he can allow his body to take at once, so whilst his actions (or lack thereof) may seem reckless, he knows his limits and will rarely (if ever) allow them to be exceeded. It is part of his personality that he allows quite a lot of damage to occur to him and as such rarely will utilise his ability to dodge.

Mind control (Secondary Sorcery)



As he had been exploring the depths of he Bloodfall Citadel, finding many dungeons below the castle, Vithmiris came across an unusual stone that reminded him of Shishira's shrine; perhaps the stone came from there, or the God would be interested in it? Whatever it may be, the vampire took the stone to the shrine and offered it to the God in an exchange for reawakening the ability to influence the minds of others, as he had once been capable of doing to monstrous effect.

It is not a frequently used ability, but an occasionally useful one; after all, what is a vampire without the ability to influence others? Typically Vithmiris will only use this on those of weaker minds to convince them to do something (such an example may be when he is collecting new subjects that he aims in turning into vampires for staff purposes if he doesn't want them putting up a fight).

He may attempt to use this on others, to a point, perhaps silently convincing them to shut up and leave him alone, or to reveal some information they wouldn't normally release; it would all be highly circumstantial, as would the degree of success as this power grows.

At this point it is just something small for fun, like changing an opinion, or forgetting having seen or heard something; more sinister things are certain to follow soon enough.

Confidant


Its name is Baskerville, as it truly is the demonic soul of a Hell Hound that Vithmiris once consumed in his early years. This creature became part of him, something that he could summon at will and use to, quite literally, devour his foes. It was only when he arrived in Caeleste that Baskerville was forced into a form of hibernation, where Vithmiris was incapable of summoning him. After a trip to Shishira's shrine and being almost poisoned, Baskerville was re-awoken and can now once again be summoned at will.

When summoned, Baskerville emerges from Vithmiris' body, an aura of darkness surrounds the stallion, and the Hell Hound quite literally is part of him. He his nought else but a giant head, and occasionally, front legs and paws. However, he can stretch out for some distance when needed.

The size of the beasts head is about 2 meters high and 1.5meters wide, with a huge gaping jaw with razor-sharp fangs. He has 3 sets of eyes, all fiery red in colour, although not all of them may be used at a time. He is pitch black in colour, and although his eyes, mouth, and claws all assume a physical solid form, his body is a very dense kind of fog or smoke-like substance. However, due to being a consumed soul, and therefore was once an actual entirely physical creature, this current state does not mean he cannot be harmed.

Baskerville will typically only be summoned when Vithmiris is in a fight, where he either has misjudged his opponent (not that he'd ever admit it), or where he has grown bored enough with his opponent and wishes to end the fight more quickly. The beast will frequently interrupt Vithmiris's thoughts, and the pair may argue mentally all the while the stallion holds a physical conversation with another; this is typical during confrontations, or when he's bored out of his mind with whoever's in his company. Lots of swearing is involved, along with petty name calling.
