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.

Personality
lawful evil
♱ distant
♱ bitter
♱ neglected
♱ uncertain
♱ cold
♱ suspicious
♱ rude

From a young age, Tethys had always found a reason to be bitter at the world for the life he'd been born into. Growing up in a ruthless guild of thieves and having to fend for himself had shaped him into an unfeeling creature. As a lawful-evil character, Tethys complied to the wills of others and carried out whatever tasks were asked of him. In a way, he was a slave. Confusion and hatred bred insecurity in Tethys' head, and as he struggled with himself while growing up he couldn't help but feel unwanted. Because of this insecurity, the stallion coped by being distant and out-of-reach. Although what he craved most was warmth and acceptance, he didn't allow himself to get attached or to grow dependent on anyone other than himself. It was just how he grew up; kindness was a foreign concept to him. Tethys grew to be a very untrusting equine and he met others with a coldness that he couldn't help. Contempt for the world and his past welded him into a rude man, capable of hurting others' feelings but also capable of learning to be better.
History
Born into a secret guild of thieves, Tethys had no choice but to learn the skill of survival at a very young age. This band of criminals -- known as the Blackbloods -- was a ruthless secret society filled with selfish and cruel beings that only worked with one another when they believed it would advance themselves. They invaded the homes of small herds, ransacking and raping the women before fleeing the scene. The children of the Blackbloods were not raised by their biological parents, but rather by the collective group. Tethys and the other colts and fillies were used to aid the adults, often performing as bait to attract potential victims. The Blackbloods operated on a vicious hazing system, and once Tethys and his peers were old enough to take on adult responsibilities they were forced to carry out degrading, humiliating, and often life-threatening tasks. Tethys was always getting the worst of it, as he was considered the outsider among the offspring. He hardly spoke, had extreme confidence issues, and wasn't a good liar. Throughout his teenage years, he was used as somewhat of a slave in multiple ways, and eventually he learned how to comply with the loose laws of the guild and realized that following orders and keeping his head low was the most freedom he'd get. He was filled with bitterness at the world, and eventually he began to drift away from the guild before leaving altogether. He was not missed. In a search to find where he belonged, if such a place existed, Tethys stepped into the land of Caeleste.

(Primary Sorcery)
SAPPHIRE STONE
Tethys is just beginning to realize his gift from the deity Shishira. It takes him a while to grasp, and his first attempts are shaky and do not fully work. With focus, the stallion can compel others to preform small, simple actions by looking deeply into their eyes. However, Tethys realizes soon that he can only compel those with weak character and those easily manipulated or ignorant. The stronger the morals and virtues, the more difficult it is for Tethys to compel that particular subject. With concentration, he can also alter minor emotions for brief periods at a time. Also, Tethys can erase others' short-term memory briefly before it returns, as he is not yet skilled enough to do anything more. The Sapphire Stone level of this sorcery does not go without consequence, however. Side effects include but are not limited to: bleeding of the eyes, violent headaches, extreme fatigue, and fainting.

EMERALD STONE
With the Emerald Stone, Tethys will gain a better grasp on his ability. While he is still not completely skilled with mind control, he will be able to compel others for a longer amount of time. With concentration, and by looking deeply into their eyes, Tethys will also be able to control more intermediate actions of others rather than just simple, easy tasks. Instead of just being able to control the minds of the spiritually weak and dull-minded, the stallion can now use his sorcery on a wider scale. He can now also manipulate more complex emotions for a longer amount of time, although it will wear off. With concentration, Tethys can now edit others' memories, and add or erase memories from their minds. This effect is not permanent, but will last only a few hours before it wears off. The physical consequences of using mind control also weaken with the Emerald Stone: violent migraines reduce to dull headaches, bleeding eyes lessen to blood clots, and light-headedness replaces fainting.

RYUU - WYVERN DRAGON

neutral-good
♱ serious
♱ devoted
♱ protective
♱ opinionated
♱ moral
♱ stubborn

Ryuu is a cat-sized wyvern dragon. To the touch, her skin feels like rubber, as she does not possess scales. The entirety of her color is blue, with the shade either lightening or darkening depending on where it is. The thin, fragile skin of her wings tends to be a darker blue than the rest of her body. Ryuu has back legs, but her forearms are merely her wings, possessing only two clawed toes connected to her wings. This means she walks on her wings and back legs. She is much more comfortable flying, as walking can sometimes appear tedious and awkward for her as she is an avian. Ryuu's eyes are a bright white hue, with hints of icy blue scattered throughout. The she-dragon's claws are a dark indigo. Her tail is long and thin. Her tongue is not forked but rather traditional. When Tethys shape shifts, he shifts into a violet dragon that matches Ryuu. Ryuu does not speak telepathically to her bonded, but rather communicates without words but with body language and expressions. She is a serious, devoted, protective, opinionated and moral companion, and sometimes her and Tethys' lifestyles do not align.
