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."

NyxNyx, Goddess of the NIght
Healing (Primary Sorcery)
Goddess of the Night
Nyx is the Greek Goddess of the Night, born of Chaos before the earth was made. She was worshipped by the early Greek horses but myths portrayed her as a dark character when in fact she is a genuinely kind mare

Gender Mare
Age 5 year old
Height 15.3 hh
Breed Arabain x Iberian
Sexuality Heterosexual
Player Darkrise
Slender and short but coated in hidden muscle that gives her a smooth physique, Nyx stands at the slightly short height of 15.3 hands. Her long neck bares the proud curve of an Iberian horse but her long legs and slim form is typical of an Arabian. With large eyes and shapely face her head is the perfect combination of Arabian and Iberian, not too dished like the former but not too curved like the latter. Wreathed in soft shades of blue her coat darkens at the face, legs, chest and rear and is dressed with spots and stripes in either lighter or more saturated tones. With hooves that gleam like opal in the sunlight and glow a very pale blue in the moonlight Nyx often has an almost ethereal look about her. Coupled with striking blue eyes that glow white in the moonlight it is not a wonder she was believed to be the Goddess of the Moon. From her proud forehead rises a slightly curved horn, a silver as the moon and adorned in silver jewellery. Similar jewellery adorns other parts of her body. Thick, curly hair erupts from her neck and hind quarters to fall as long as her hooves. A similar blue hue to her hair; light and dark blue hues form subtle stripes in the hair.
Mysterious | beautiful | elegant | lady-like | bookworm | art-lover | generous | caring | kind | gentle | curious | quiet | independent | wise/knowledgeable | compassionate | wrathful

As radiant and mysterious as the moon Nyx is a truly gentle creature despite being the Daughter of Chaos. She is the embodiment of the night and yet where the night is dark she is light for Nyx lives to care for others. Sweet and gentle, she is kind to anyone lest they show her bad intent and even then she always looks for the good in others, seeing past their darkness and into their light. At first she might come across as young and perhaps even naïve, the fact that she always assumes there is good in everyone and the gentle, quiet persona she adopted often leads many to think that she is only a few years old. However she was there when the world began, she born by the Chaos of creation and brought beauty and mystery into the world. Since then she has lived in many bodies, most of which could not handle the true power of such a divine being. Now her powers are dormant and her immortality lost yet the knowledge that comes with years of life still resides with her brilliant blue eyes and she often can be found with her nose buried in a book or looking at art. Nyx is a true beauty and has elegance about her as she walks, a particularly lady-like air surrounding her.

Despite being a very generous, caring, faithful, compassionate and curious creature, like the night and like her father before her she does have a wrath that Chaos would be proud of. Though not easily angered, when she is angered you can feel the true might of darkness and power tangibly rolls off her in waves. You come to understand then why Night is more dangerous than Day.

Born at the beginning of time | Father- Chaos | Mother- unknown | At constant war with Chaos to protect equine kind | Took over a mortal body in an attempt to stop the battles | Changed bodies every 3 years to voluntary hosts | Lived for many centuries as equine kind developed and evolved | Was worshipped at the Goddess of the Night | A ceremony was performed to make her true form visible and liveable on earth | Ceremony was changed by Chaos so that Nyx became entirely mortal and her powers became dormant |

I was there at the beginning when the only being in existence was my father Chaos. The world was pure darkness, no light, no stars, no day and no night. Just Chaos. And then he created me, Nyx, the Goddess and Personification of the Night. Only I wasn’t what he wanted. I was supposed to be dark and evil but I could not. Instead I was the guide, the healer and the one who cared for the first horses whilst Chaos sought war and desolation. For centuries as the primitive horse developed into what we see today they were constantly aggravated by my family’s battles. My father and I would fight as he attempted to bring about the Chaos he was so aptly named for. Much happened between then and my time on earth, I was partially responsible for much of the world as equines see it today. However I grew tired of my fighting and decided that the best way to protect equine kind was join them. So I embodied a mortal form, rebirthing myself in the body of a young foal born that day. My power was recognised immediately and I was worshipped despite my best attempts to stop it for I did not seek to be put on a pedestal but to simply help my people. Unfortunately my power was too great for a mortal to handle and I would burn them out so to speak, furthermore my father, having realised what I had done would send creatures like wolves and bears and entities like fire to destroy whatever herd housed me. This was absolutely not what I had wanted, I never sought to see equine kind harmed and in taking a mortal form I had managed only to bring my family’s wrath down stronger upon my people. However my people wanted me to stay, they wanted to protect me and fight for me so once my host had held me for a few years I would change bodies so as not to kill them. The herd built great fortresses and castles with armies to protect me from whatever Chaos threw at me and so life went on. Day would end and Night would come and every 3 years I would transfer into another host. As the years went by, the world evolved around me and my friends all died as I lived on, I began to get lonely and sad, inhabiting the bodies of another was both painful and saddening. My people noticed for the nights became longer and the days shorter as my emotions spilled over. Research was begun as they hunted for a way to put me permanently in one body, my own body, so that I would not be using another’s soul up. When an answer was found a ceremony was launched however news of this reached my father and he decided to try and kill me once and for all so that chaos and war could rule the land. He changed the ceremony so that my immortal form was forced to become mortal. With what power I had left I stopped them from killing me and prevented him from making the day endless so that Night would come as a respite from day. This sapped all my strength and power so that all that remains of Nyx Goddess of Night is this mortal form and the glow of my fur and eyes. I hope one day to unlock my powers once again.

Healing (Primary Sorcery)
Nyx is a strong believer in the idea that the night provides healing; everything feels better after a night’s sleep. When she was the Goddess of the Night she had various powers however it was her power to heal and her power to create a light from the stars to guide the lost and the weary that she valued most. The Goddess Vasanta was able to gift Nyx her power of healing back and she also regained various other more minor magics as her time in Caeleste increased.

Nyx’s healing magic is based mainly on knitting things together- she cannot replace what is lost. For example she can fuse blood vessels back together, close open wounds and heal breaks in bones however she cannot replace lost blood or organs. When at her strongest there is the possibility that she would be able to put missing organs back in place, for example if a kidney was removed she would be able to put it back in by rejoining everything. However this works only for minor organs and only if the horse is alive.
Her healing works best on herself so she finds it far easier and far less taxing to heal her own wounds than others however she still cannot replace lost blood or organs etc. She can also move her own energy and strength into others, so if someone was exhausted she could give them energy, though this would cause her to lose some herself.
At this level Nyx can only heal minor injuries such a tiny cuts and bruises, or focus her strength on closing blood vessels rather than the whole wound. Similarly she can only give small amounts of energy to others at greater cost to herself.

Nyx can assume the form of any animal in existence, which in the world of Caeleste also includes things like dragons and hell hounds. However she has a few preferred forms that are generally easier to phase into because she takes them more often, these include a wolf, a bear and a black panther. She can be identified by her icy blue eyes.
Nyx may also choose to shift certain parts of her form, such as her hooves into clawed paws or her vocal chords so that she may speak normally in any form. It’s the act of shifting that drains her energy and the larger the animal in comparison to her own form the more energy it takes. Sometimes she will be stuck in one form until she is able to regain that energy in order to phase again.

Lively Lights:
Her lively lights allow her to create light in the darkness of the night when there is none, like a lantern to guide you through the night.

Midnight vision:
Nyx’s site is far better at night than in day and though not too much beyond that of a normal equine her enhanced vision has helped her greatly during Shishira’s darkness.

Icy Blast:
Gifted to her by the malevolent God, Shishira, Nyx now has the ability to form icy crystals from her left hoof. They act like a frosty daggers and can be ‘shot’ from her hoof. However she cannot do this more than once every few days.

Much of Nyx’s magic relies upon her energy levels which fluctuate the same way they do for us. Using her magic depletes her strength and since her sorcery is not fully replenished at the moment using magic can be severely taxing. Losing too much energy can leave her fatigued, cause her to pass out or even kill her.
Nyx's confidant is certainly no ordinary creature even among other confidants. By day he is a large wolf, graced with jet black fur and startlingly blue eyes; standing with his head at her withers. By night however he assumed an entirely different form; that of a Hellhound. Created by Nyx and the three headed creature Cerberus he found his way to Caeleste following the ceremony that damned Nyx to mortality. Dynatos, meaning strong, was the first Hellhound besides Cerberus and gave his loyalty to Nyx even as a puppy. Unlike the rest of the Hellhounds, Dynatos was not a killer or a catcher of souls, indeed he may have kept the protective and aggressive streak that all hounds of Hell had but he obeyed Nyx's every command and she did not allow him to become the monsters his brethren were taught to be. However his appearance leaves many to believe otherwise. The transformation from wolf to Hellhound is a painful one but something he had learnt to bare over the decades. The bones his in spine seem to enlarge and grow up through his fur, splitting the skin to form sharp spikes along his back. The ears extend and the shape of his head changes, becoming more angular with a sharp snout and wider jaws. His teeth and claws extend slightly, becoming sharper and longer. A third eye opens up upon his forehead; a pupiless red orb that it is fabled will kill you should you stare at it too long however Dynatos lost that power upon leaving the underworld. He can often be found wreathed in shadow or glow red with flames pouring from his mouth and nostrils. A spiked collar encircles his neck, often disguised by the thick black fur around his neck. Sometimes he bears a wolf skull upon his face with a cut-out for his third eye.

Disclaimer: Dynatos will not attack anyone's character unless used in battle, nor may he harm another character unless used in a battle.
