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.

    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!

Appearance


A gray roan sabino would be the typical way to describe her coat. The base of her coat was a silver, grullo hue with splashes of ivory everywhere. Like wearing long socks, her front limbs were white from her pale colored hooves to where her shoulder began. Rear limbs similar, up to where her haunches started. A lot of ivory spots among her belly, shoulders, withers, hindquarters as well. Her entire face was white except for around her eyes; they were circled with the gray that matched her coat.

The white of her face ended near her muzzle, where the pale pink color of her hooves also matched her nose and lips. Completely bare of any hair. Along the ridge of her nose, she had two long horns; like a rhino's. The horn closest to her nose was the longest and the sharpest, while the horn right above it by a few inches was shorter with a wide base. She had deep violet hued eyes, yet they were fierce. Ylva’s mane was fascinating to say the least. At the base of her mane it was a dark gray, near onyx. It faded out to a lighter silver and the very tips were a red, as if dipped in blood. Her tail was only slightly different, as the base of it was pure white then it faded into onyx, then silver, and onto the red tips.

Her massive wings were feathered and matched the amethyst color of her eyes. Ylva bore many scars, she wasn’t a stranger to battle nor pain. She fought often. Her name meant “she wolf”, it was an interesting tale on how she received that name. Her homeland was riddled with dire wolves, while those of her homeland ran among them, they didn't live entirely "peacefully" together.

Along those scars, her body had rune symbols from her heritage; one along the crest of her neck that translated to: "Wolf", as her name means "She-wolf". Another on the inside of her right leg; the warrior rune. Those of her tribe were born with the runes that spoke of their purpose; she was a warrior that ran with the wolves.

face/voice: Lagertha from Vikings.
Personality

Ruthless. Cunning. Loyal. Ambitious. Seductive.

That was a few words to describe Ylva. She was like an onion, you pull one layer back you were met with another one. Getting to know her entirely, well you had to have an abundance of patience and a lot of time on your hands. The woman just simply didn’t trust anyone, not like she used to.

When it came to her friends and those who had gained her trust, she was loyal to the very end. There was nothing Ylva wouldn’t do for a friend or someone she considered family. She was a feisty one and would never go down easily. Once befriended, she was loyal till her very last breath. She would fight and defend those who had gained her loyalty and trust. She wasn’t much of a gossiper either, considering she didn’t care too much for drama where shit talking came about. Once a secret was told to her, it remained in her mind unless told otherwise.

It was said that Ylva would be an incredible spy, she knew just what she had to do to get ahold of any information she wanted to. She was a fantastic observer of others, she learned how to push other’s buttons to her advantage. Some have called her a trickster, which she holds the nickname proudly. She was a very valuable weapon once you proved yourself worthy of her gifts, for she didn’t just work for anyone and for nothing.

Being seductive also comes hand in hand with her sly self. It was not only another way to get what she wanted, it was just how she was. At a young age she had been abused by her brothers, she learned what they liked and what they didn’t. She now used that to her advantage. Not only is it apart of her personality, it also helps with her job. She knew how the insides of the male mind worked, well as far as sex went. Anything else it was just as much of a mystery to her than another female.

There wasn’t much more that Ylva wanted in the world than to be the very best she could be. She wanted to be Queen. She wanted to have many offspring by only the toughest males'. She wanted to crawl her way to the top of the food chain. She was very ambitious, and she would do just about whatever she had to, to get to the top, or until she was satisfied.

Which brings me to her ruthless nature. It was rather scary how dark Ylva would get. If it was for something she wanted, there is just about nothing that would stand in her way – except for another loved one, which where her loyalty comes in. But putting everything aside, she will do anything to get the job done. No matter who is in the way, or what happens. She simply doesn’t care.
History
Mother of Namerin & Igor.


There wasn't too much to be told about the past of the she-wolf. Okay, I shall rephrase that; there isn't much that she'd like to share with anyone. Just for the mere fact that it was in the past and there was nothing more to it. But alas, she will give you vital details.

[ beginning years ]
Born among a rural island within a rather massive tribe. There had been four different tribes that made up the island, she just so happened to be born into the largest one. It wasn't like a normal story, she wasn't royalty. She wasn't a leader's daughter. Her father, Snorre, was actually a rather evil man. You could say he was the keeper of prisoners, the one who kept the slaves in line. Their tribe which was known as the Völsung clan, committed many unspeakable acts. Their lives were highly influenced by the direwolves, in which they live among them as one. The clan sacrificed a numerous of beings to their Gods, a strong belief of their Gods instilled since birth. They did not worship the Gods, yet lived among them. Often bathing in the blood of their enemies to please these said Gods.

The story of how Ylva became was unfortunate. Her mother, Turid, had been captured from a neighboring clan, Scylfing, while she had been out tracking a hunt. Little had she known she had been on Völsung grounds. But one of their own hunters had caught her, after roughing her up some, they brought her back for Snorre to do as he wished. Snorre had ended up taking a particular liking to Turid, gloating to others of her pure beauty and savageness of her. He bragged on how violently she fought as he forced himself upon her. That had resulted in her older brother, Steinar, being born into the world. Snorre and the other warriors took him under their wing quickly, teaching him the ways of Völsung. Once more Snorre forced himself upon Turid, this time she had given him a ride of his life, but she eventually was dominated. That was how Ylva came into this world. Although her being female disgusted her frenzied fathe , the few shieldmaidens among the tribe managed to talk him down from slaying his first born daughter. The one who possessed the name of Solveg, had recognized her rune markings, asked to take her under their wings and Snorre allowed it; he couldn't look at his pathetic daughter for another moment. So on she went with the maidens.

From the moment Ylva could speak she was put through extensive training. Her first word had been blood, which pleased the shieldmaidens greatly. Solveg knew of the legends of those who were born with markings, but she had never witnessed it herself. Until she happened to gaze upon the only daughter of Snorre and Turid. It was said that once every hundred years a life was born into the tribes with a prophecy carved into their neck; those were to achieve greatness.

Being the only young female warrior was tough, but nothing Ylva couldn't handle. She found immense pride in watching the horror on the males' faces as she kicked their asses in a spar, or out-hunting them. She'd bring back a full grown buck as her peers sulked back with a hare. The direwolves even enjoyed hunting with her, while they saw other adolescences as a nuisance. Not Ylva.

[ the hardship years ]
As the years passed, her parents had brought another son into the world, Magnus. Another bratty boy. However she paid no attention to him or any of the other boys, she was far too concentrated on training and being among the wolves. She had been about three years old when she had gone into a few battles with the others among tribes. Nothing too intense. One night she had been among her father and older brother after a victorious raid, which had ended with Snorre and Steinar forcing themselves onto her, taking turns as the other held her down. She had put up a strong fight, but it hadn't been enough. Her mother Turid had stumbled upon them, but pretended she saw nor heard a thing.

Later, Ylva birthed a daughter. No one had outright questioned her on who's it was, but there were rumors. Whispers. But she ignored them all and looked upon her daughter with passionate love. Naming her Dagný, she happily raised her. However a month or so later, Steinar had ambushed Ylva and her daughter in their cave, trampling sweet, innocent Dagný before Ylva could react and he took off. Leaving her there mourning over the bloody mess of her daughter. After she had gathered herself, she tore into her father's home, savagely slaughtering her parents, sparing Magnus but not without leaving a gash to his chest and a lesson not to ever fuck with his sister. Steinar had been no where to be found, so she had turned tail and sought after him; she surely didn't want to be there in the morning. A year had passed since she began looking for him, the trail growing colder and colder... She would never forget what he had done, but she gave up on the hard chase and began to wander, her heart cold and dead.

[ Elysium ]
Coming to an island unknown to her, she was still in search of her brother. However she came to find a whole new world of people and experiences. She became a warrior for one of the chaotic evil herds, formed alliances with a brash new female who came in search of blood and leadership, when she had lost the battle to Ylva's current Emperor, he took her back to their territory to punish her - which ended in her carrying his child.

She managed to escape only to reunite with Destroyah and their child, Namerin. She had managed to stop Destroyah in her tracks, as she had been on her way to challenge the Emperor Draco once more. They spoke of leaving and it was agreed upon. They would go in search of a new home. So they set off.

[ Caeleste ]
Upon coming closer to the passage of Caeleste, they got separated. Ylva could no longer find where her family had gone; so she trudged on, to become trapped in the passage herself. As she had stepped through the portal, her swollen belly had disappeared. She no longer was carrying the child of Draco; she was completely alone and lost without her small family.

Without Destroyah and their son by her side, she sought off and explored the lands of Caeleste. Managing to get caught up with a male by the name of Entia, she spent a lovely night with him, resulting in her first born-by-her son, Igor. Before giving birth, she was reunited with Destroyah and Namerin, although with the scent of Entia upon her hide, Destroyah was less than pleased. With a brief reunion, Ylva's lover went off to challenge for a home. She challenged for Dead Horse Ridge. While she was busy with the battle; Ylva gave birth to Igor.
Teleportation Sorcery
As if her newly found power stemmed from her wanting to disappear in her younger years, she was gifted the sorcery of Teleportation.

Upon testing her abilities first on a few objects, such as leaves, a stick here and there, even water vapors. She finds that she can teleport them from one place to another while still intact. While she knows there is much to learn and much to accomplish with this ability, she is fairly particular and precise. Ylva is just learning how to teleport herself to specific places - although not far - instead of random. Though she has yet to overcome the tiredness that washes over her after teleporting herself, it does in fact take a lot out of her, far more than just teleporting small objects. She can also sense certain molecules inside one's body, just begging to be messed with. While she hasn't reached that amount of power yet, she knows it's there.
