Setting
YR TWO | EARLY SPRING
The snow has melted in most places of Caeleste, besides those that are prone to snow throughout all seasons. Birds are chirping, the nice weather bringing them back home from winter migrations. You will also notice many other animals reappearing throughout. Weather temperatures have risen but often a cool crisp air will still bite at coats during the evening and night hours. Enjoy the lovely weather of spring for summer may not be as kind.

  • Member of the Month
    boaz
    Rather new to this large crazy family, Boaz is often seen in the cBox or in Caeleste's discord channel. A rather friendly, outgoing personality, Boaz is not afraid to make new friends and get involved in any plots!
  • Thread of the Month
    let’s play a game
    A touching, heartbreaking, thread. Leonidas and Roxana come to find their beautiful child viciously murdered. This thread can be considered the start of a war as Leonidas will not rest until he finds whomever did this.
  • Couple of the Month
    Vithmiris & Slythe
    Caeleste's resident vampire couple, Emperor Vithmiris and Slythe have offered a rather interesting dynamic to their pairing. While the pair have a tendency for violence, the two also have their tender moments - as fleeting as they are.
  • Character of the Month
    Hassan
    The newly crowned Greeshma Emperor has certainly made a name for himself among many in Caeleste in many ways and has made it no secret his ambitions for the kingdom of Greeshma. We can't wait to see what he does next!

    “Run along back to that mountain in that frozen hell you call home. And next time you come strolling out from between his sheets, I suggest you wash yourself. I could smell you a mile away.”

Appearance
One word to describe Thumbelina would be “cute.” From her fluffy white mane and tail, to her short stature, to her bright inquisitive eyes, she seems to embody a sense of cuteness that is hard to rival. She appears fairy-like and playful, finding her sense of beauty from the nature that surrounds her and fills her every breath.

She has the build of a typical Gypsy Vanner, but that is where typical ends. From the leafy green hues of her spots to the flowers that grow into her mane and tail, Thumbelina stands out from the rest of the Gypsy Vanners. Her mane and tail, the stark white of freshly fallen snow, are braided with vines and leafs, not to mention the dozens of flowers that sprout from the hair. Around her ears is a delicate crown of flowers, woven together with wild flowers and the hair from the members of her tribe. A permanent reminder of a place long gone. Her face, soft in appearance and slightly dished, is only made softer by the large fawn brown eyes that peer out at the world. On her head is a brilliant sapphire that can change color depending on her mood. From the base of the sapphire sprouts a pearl horn, that wraps and twists to a delicately fine point. The sapphire changes with Thumbelina's mood.

On her back, she sports delicate fairy wings of green and white, and they flutter about as she moves through her day, also assisting her with flight whenever needed.
Personality
Kind. That is what Thumbelina is, and it is what she embodies. All creatures that cross her path are met with kindness and care. Her hooves are always placed delicately lest she step on an unsuspecting critter or bug.

Her kindness is only rivaled by her joy. Bubbly and excitable, Thumbelina dances and sings her way through the day. Her joy and kindness belay the fact that she can and will handle any threat to her friends and loved ones. Because of this, she is very brave, and while this is a very positive quality, sometimes she can end up in situations that are over her head.

Clumsy at times and often speaking faster than her brain can think, Thumbelina has no filter between her brain and mouth. If she loves you she will let you know. However, if you are mean or arrogant she will point this out to you, in a loving but blunt way.
History
Thumbelina comes from the realm of fairies. Creatures as old as the dawn of time, hidden from prying eyes and curious creatures, the fairies watch over the realm of mortals.

Thumbelina, a curious and inquisitive girl, now finds herself called before the Fairy King and Queen. As she makes her way to the throne room, nervous excitement brewing in her belly, Thumbelina dips her head in greeting to each passerby she comes across. Her wings flutter with nervous energy as she enters the throne room, stopping at the respected distance to bow her greeting. “Stand before us Thumbelina.” Righting herself Thumbelina holds her head high and her smile is one of warmth and happiness. Her King and Queen sit upon their thrones, beaming down at her. “Come closer my child.” The Queen’s singsong voice calls to her and, as if on their own accord, her feet carry her closer. “Child,” The King begins, “we have a special mission for you.” Thumbelina’s ears prick up. A mission? She was always the one that was picked last to go on missions. Her age and clumsiness, yes she was often clumsy when excited, meant that she was left out of missions. But here, now, the King was giving her a special mission! Her heart flutters with excitement. The King continues, “You are special Thumbelina. For years you have showed your own kind the meaning of happiness and joy.” Thumbelina’s wings flutter in happiness at the kind words of her King. The King’s smile widens and a soft laugh escapes his lips. His voice takes on a softer tone as he continues. “For these reasons, and for you brave heart, we have decided that you are the one to go live among the mortals.” The words drop Thumbelina’s heart and her joy evaporates. She has to leave the fairy realm? Leave her loved ones and home and everything she has known? Tears sprang unbidden into Thumbelina’s eyes and the King and Queen’s expressions morph into one of sadness. The Queen leaves her Throne and glides up to Thumbelina. She pauses a moment before Thumbelina. The Queen studies the young fairy, taking in her tears and sad expression. The Queen speaks, “Thumbelina, we are not punishing you. Please understand that we love you child. It has come to our attention that the mortals have forgotten about our realm. They think we don’t care about them anymore. We have chosen you because you embody all the good things we fairies are. You are special, my child, and even though it hurts our hearts to see you leave the realm, we must ask you to do this.” Thumbelina stands in quiet contemplation for several minutes. Her mind is a whirlwind of thoughts and feelings. Fear rears it ugly head. Fear of the unknown, of a place without friends and loved ones, and of hurt and despair. Fear is replaced with longing. Longing to stay, to belong, to be thought of this highly all the time. Slowly, the tides of chaos ebb and reasoning starts to take hold. Where fear stood now reigns determination. Where longing held on, now resides, peace. She knows she must do this, not just for her King and Queen, but for herself. Thumbelina knows that she will grow and learn more out in the mortal world than she ever could here. Her mind snaps back to the present and the face of the Queen looms in front of her. Sadness resides in the Queen’s eyes and stance. Slowly, like dawn breaking the gloom of night, a smile spreads across Thumbelina’s face. The smile warms her face and lightens the hearts of all those in the room. The Queen’s face mirrors Thumbelina’s, showing happiness and joy. With unspoken acceptance and understanding the Queen embraces Thumbelina. Draping her head across the Queen’s back, Thumbelina’s resolve falters a moment and a sense of loss is felt deeply. Just as quickly as the moment comes, it passes and her resolve is restored. Slowly, softly, the King starts to tell Thumbelina her mission.

With a mission and purpose firmly established, Thumbelina now finds herself leaving behind the realm of fairies. With nothing but a crown made of flowers and the hair from the manes of her follow fairies, Thumbelina steps boldly across the border of the realm. Knowing she may never return, she turns her face toward the sun and smiles.
Healing Sorcery
Thumbelina has been gifted the power to heal. As a fairy Thumbelina is familiar with magic and, while she has never used sorcery, has seen it used before.

Sapphire Stone- Thumbelina is in the beginning stages of learning what healing is and how to use this sorcery. Small cuts, contusions, minor burns and small fractures, Thumbelina can heal. Well, she can try. While she may not always be able to heal wounds, she cannot make them worse. Depending on the severity of the wound, or broken bone, depends on the amount of energy she spends. While learning how to heal, Thumbelina can tire herself quickly. If the need arises she can, and will try, to heal major, life threating wounds. This however, will push her to death’s door and take several months to recover fully from. Thumbelina will put herself last when it comes to the needs of others. It is not because she wants to get herself hurt, it is simply because she loves every creature and believes that all deserve to be helped.

Thumbelina has been gifted a bronze stone of animal control.

Bronze Stone- Gifted with a bronze stone in animal control, Thumbelina is learning to reach out to her animal friends. Always concerned for the well being of all creatures, Thumbelina can now reach out and 'touch' the minds of her animal companions. While at the beginning stages, Thumbelina can reach out and sooth the minds of anxious/scared creatures. In times of great need, Thumbelina can control one of her friends. However, she would ask first. If she is allowed to take control it is only for a short time and it tires her quickly. Thumbelina would only use this to defend herself or others. She would never attack others without provocation. Her first, and greatest concern is always for the safety and well-being of her animal friends. If permission is not given to allow her to control one, she will respect that.
