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!

  • 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.

    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.

Aeoloni
Gender: Mare
Age: Immortal
Height: 16.0hh
Blah: blah
appearance
Appearance
Aeoloni, or Aeo, is a tall, yet svelte mare. She has a typical dished arabian forehead, and a skeek yet slightly muscular body. When she moves, she moves with the deadly grace of a warrior and a dancer all at once, and she holds herself confidently and slightly flamboyantly. Her hide is a sleek silver that is accented by a bright purple on her legs and ear-tips. She also sports a long and slightly wavy, silver mane and tail, that have thin strands of gold interwoven throughout.

Aeoloni has a pair of long and slender, yet powerful wings that sprout from her shoulders, and another smaller pair that appear right behind her ears. While she generally leaves her wings (and horn) out in plain sight, she is able to hide them all at will. All four wings are the same silver as her body, and are tipped in the same purple that accents her ears and legs. Interwoven in her feathers are gold threads that sparkle in the light and draw focus to her wings.

Aeo's eyes are a brilliant blue - the blue of the sky - and they change color with her emotion. When she is happy, they seem to glow with a steady brilliance, but while she is angry, they become dark like an mid-afternoon thunderstorm. While her eyes seem full of joy, and love, when one looks deeper they appear wise, and old beyond years. Her eyes are unlined by age, but their depth has the ability to pull you in. Lining her eyes is a soft lavender colored eyeshadow, dark lashes, and a black eyeliner. On her head, Aeo sports a long, slender horn, that she knows how to use dangerously in combat.

Last, but not least, Aeoloni has a soft lavender scarf-like item made of sheer material that drapes from her neck or over her shoulder from a delicately woven gold cord. She also wears a warm amethyst surrounded in intricate gold weaving at the base of her horn.
personality
Personality
One can never quite know what to expect when dealing with Aeoloni, and it can definitely be said that she dances to the rhythm of her own tune. She is a leader yet a follower, she is quiet, yet bold, she is outgoing and outspoken, yet also reserved and mysterious. She can seem flighty and aloof, but she is dependable and caring.

While there are many flip sides to Aeo's personality, there are also many constants. She has the heart of a warrior, and the soul of a philosopher. To many she may seem naive, but to others she is wise beyond her years. She is a passionate about her beliefs, and is a fighter to the very end. She is always kind; she fights for the weak; she does not understand hate - she does not even hate evil. She dislikes it, and can not comprehend how one can enjoy harming oneself or others. She cannot see how one can let bitterness fill their soul. To her it seems nasty and filthy, while love seems so joyful and pure. To some, this makes her naive, but she is not blind to the evils of the world. She, herself, has experienced pain, despair, hatred, but has also seen the new life that comes from the shedding of the old self. She always seeks improvement, always seeks love. She knows what it is like to live in the darkness, but she also knows the joy that living in the light brings. To her, it is her goal to always help, always heal, and always bring out the best in others and herself.
history
History
Coming from a land of immortals, Aeoloni's history is a long and detailed one. As far as she knows, she has always been. She was born as an adult, and while she is not the first, nor the eldest, she is still old beyond years, and she could not give an age if she was asked... indeed, from her land, time is seen differently... from the view of an immortal it is irrelevant and passes without age or decay - there is no blood, no physical death. In fact, time is based more upon experience rather than seasons or years, and of that Aeo has much.

Born to learn, born to fight the evil that existed in her world - Amarna - Aeo became a warrior and a leader. In the beginning, there was no corruption, but alas! Things change, and soon a clear line came between what was good and light, and what was dark and evil. As oil and water do not mix neither did good and evil. Indeed, in Amarna you were one side or the other, and as time passed the inhabitants began to embody traits from what was in their soul. Those who sought truth, love, and purity shone bright like stars, while those who sought corruption, hate, and power began to decay in reflection of their soul.

Because of this war, Aeo was tasked, with the help of others to create an army to defeat the corruption that was born. For millennia both sides fought adamantly with tooth and claw. While there was not death, there was pain, there was isolation, there was torture. The good sought to reconcile what was lost, to save those who fell into the dark night of the soul, while the evil sought power, to overthrow that which was inherently good. They threw away their birthright, and instead of repentance, they sought to forcefully gain that which was never theirs.

Because of this war, Aeo fought, and was eventually captured. For decades she was trapped and tortured in the most horrible ways. She was strong of will, and strong of endurance, but the pain left its mark on her soul. Finally, after nearly a hundred years she was freed from imprisonment, but the torture left her hurt, and it left her bitter.

While she was hurt and bitter, Aeo chose to become free of the pain. She knew it would be hard, but she had seen what hatred could do, and she chose to take the road to healing, and chose forgiveness. It was hard, and in that pain, she still fought the evil, but instead of fighting out of obligation, she fought with a passion born of suffering. She knew what it was like to hurt, and through the pain she took it upon herself to become a vessel of light. No, she was not perfect, but she would fight, and she would forgive, even where it hurt.

Again, millennia passed, and another major war between good and evil took place. Near the end of the battle, a prophet approached Aeoloni and told her that her life would change drastically. She would be sent to live in another realm as a mortal, and she must learn how to live and die as one before returning to Amarna. No - it would not be easy, she would likely lose her power, and much else - but it was a task and a prophecy that must be fulfilled. No other reason was given, but Aeo nodded. She would do what she must, even if it meant losing everything.


Screams and shouts filled the air as the collision of light and dark took place. The light was winning, but only by a hair, and the dark fought desperately to gain back the ground they were steadily losing. Aeoloni, led the forces into battle with the help of her fellow commanders, and with the intricate plans that the war council had made, they inched forward against their opponents. Finding a spot where she could survey the battle, the amethyst and white mare scanned the ground with her liquid blue eyes. There was dark smoke where the enemy held their strongest ground, and rays of solid white light where her forces stood. In the center, where the battle was fought the hardest, black smoke and white mist rose up like a column into the sky, swirling like an angry storm cloud about to bear down upon the earth.

Searching, where the blackness was the darkest, the mare found the spot where all light seemed to be absorbed. Turning, she spotted Feldspar, a ruggedly handsome stallion and co-commander, and spoke to him through the din, "I believe I have found the spot where Vernus is hiding, I am going in and I am going in alone to finish him, so this battle can come to an end". Meeting her steady gaze, the stallion nodded, and shouted orders for the army to create a small diversion to gain Aeoloni time.

Sneaking away, the mare covered her already dirty hide in soot and created a shield around herself to hide her lightborn abilities from her enemies. She was not powerless, but she was going to do her best to avoid detection.

Making her way slowly through the thick of the battlefield, she skirted around the thickest fighting, and snuck up the hill towards her enemy. Feldspar's diversion was working as hoped, and Vernus was unaware of her presence. Ambushing him, the mare leapt down upon him, her horn alight with the power she held within herself. She was going to weaken him enough for capture. Stabbing straight at his chest with her horn, the mare braced for the force of the impact. However, just as suddenly, as she herself had attacked, the mare was hit blindsided by a force she had not known was there. Gasping, the mare flew sideways, her limbs flying. Trying to regain her balance, the mare struggled to her feet, but was too slow. Her attacker was already upon her again. Vernus had created an illusion and had been hiding - waiting for her to attack. She had known better than to assume it would be easy, yet she had hoped her target remained distracted and unaware.

Having fought Vernus before, the mare knew his strength, she could easily match him. However, she had been caught off guard by the surprise attack. Cackling menacingly the stallion lunged towards her, flames in his eyes, and green and black smoke rising from his putrid maw. She had regained her feet, and stood somewhat at ready with her horn in defense, but his attack sent her more off balance, and he drove her even farther back.

Slipping in some volcanic mud, the mare fell to her side. She already regretted her mistake, and she could see no way out, no one to help her. She was deep behind enemy lines, and it had been mere luck that she had made it this far without having to fight. Bracing herself, the mare breathed deep, and attempted to block the attack. The stallion however diverted his charge, and lunged straight for her chest. She knew this was the end. She would end up back in places where the light knew no favor. Suddenly, a swirling of bright lights, and flashes of lightning filled her vision, and just as quickly, she was spinning into a void of blackness. She knew not what was happening, but with a loss of consciousness, she knew that the enemy had either unleashed a powerful and awful weapon, or the explainable was happening.

Light Control - The ability to control and manipulate light in a way that can be useful in battle or for other purposes.



-Ruby
Aeoloni is finding that she has an advanced teaching of light control sorcery. She is now able to create orbs, beams of light, and bright patches with little or no effort, and her designs are only limited by her imaginations. Along with these fantastic shows of light, she finds she is able to create more life-like illusions, and while one could walk through them, and while they are unable to make noise, it would be difficult to tell them from reality (unless you're looking for a shadow). These illusions also take much less strength, and she finds that she can create much more complex images and designs without expending nearly as much energy.

As her competency with visual illusions, orbs, and lights grows, so too does her ability to form light as a weapon or a shield. She is able to sustain and create larger and stronger tools for both offensive and defensive use. There are still flaws in her system, and her light created weapons don't work all the time, but there is generally more consistency to it. Also, while it takes a fair amount of strength, it takes considerably less than before.

Also, as her sorcery increases, she finds it making an affect on her appearance. Now, Aeoloni has a faint glow, like an aura or a halo around her, and her body emits sort of a faint light. It is hardly noticeable in the daytime, but in the shadows or in the darkness, it becomes more and more obvious. It is not something that happens consciously, but rather is caused by the atoms in her body becoming filled with the light that she now controls. She can turn it off if needed, but it is not something that she thinks about in most situations. The increase of light in her body also makes her feel lighter, and the lightness lends a slight increase in speed of her movements and agility. Lastly, when Aeoloni feels a strong emotion, visual changes can occur. For example, she sparkles when she is happy, or the light shining from her can take on a dark hue when she is angry.

-Emerald-
Aeoloni is now becoming stronger in the art of light control, it takes her little to no effort to create orbs of light that she can move and change color at will. Larger, more intricate patters and designs take more concentration, and sometimes more energy, but overall creating light comes much easier to her. As she progresses in her ability to create and manipulate light, she finds that creating visual illusions is also much easier. These illusions still take a lot of concentration, and they still appear as a hologram, but their realism is much better than before. They can also drain her energy fairly quickly, especially if they are complicated, but it is a lot easier now than it was with her sapphire stone sorcery.

Also, as before, Aeo is beginning to realize that she can solidify the light. She is now able to use it as a shield, or a weapon such as shards of light or even a small sword. However, using light in this way takes an immense amount of focus and energy, and she is only able to sustain such objects for a short amount of time before it drains her. There is also a chance that she will not be able to solidify them enough, so that their attacks are useless and they become incorporeal.

-Sapphire-
In the beginning stages of Light Control Sorcery, Aeoloni is discovering that she is regaining the ability to manipulate and create light. With focus, the mare is able to create orbs or shapes of light of varying intensity and size. A smaller more dim orbs take less energy, while larger, more intricate and brighter designs take a bit more energy and concentration.

As she begins to be able to create light, she realizes that she can also create different colors of light, and is able to make changes in already visible light. She can create some small illusions, and can make some objects appear in mid-air, or she can partially hide a solid object. Right now these illusions aren't very good, and because they are just light, one is able to go right through them.

Also, while she cannot yet use her ability in battle, Aeoloni is discovering that she can make objects out of light. These things take a lot of concentration, and drain energy quickly, but she is discovering that she can create objects like swords and shields. She can only maintain this for seconds though, and the amount of focus needed is intense. Also, because she is new at this, the light she creates isn't strong enough to hurt anyone, only strong enough to resemble the object she intends to create.
secondary sorcery
Secondary Sorcery
Clairvoyance - the art of knowing the unseen without using any of the five senses - a sixth sense.


Aeo is now beginning to re-experience the gift of clairvoyance. In her previous land, she experienced the gift very strongly - a vast wealth of knowledge and sensations literally at her fingertips. However, in Caeleste, with the help of her Sapphire Stone, her gifts aren't quite so strong, and the weaker sensations are almost foreign to her as she relearns how to use them.

As Aeoloni begins to relearn her clairvoyance, she begins to feel a range of sensations tickling at the back of her mind. Sometimes they are very weak, sometimes they almost seem overwhelming. She begins to realize that she can feel things that are not within herself and begins to understand that she can feel the space around her - the plants, the objects, the living beings, and sometimes even spirits. She gets the general overarching sense of their presence, and in living beings and spirits, she can feel basic emotions when she focuses. In crowds it is like a swirling sensation - a buzzing so to speak - the buzzing of many souls clashing together - emotions and moods. Sometimes this can be quite overwhelming, and in these instances, the mare needs to seek solitude to regain a sense of her own inner peace. By herself, or in small groups, the turmoil is less chaotic, and the emotions of others touches at her minds, but with focus she can determine if they are not her own or someone else's.

Aside from the ability to feel, Aeo begins to discover that she has dreams of the future. Sometimes they are accurate, sometimes not. She has no control, and oftentimes they are vague. They leave her a sense of unquiet, a lack of peace, but again, she has no idea where they come from or if they hold any accuracy. They come infrequently and are unpredictable, and sometimes they leave her with a sense of unknowing.

Lastly, Aeo begins to get random snippets of information about others. Facts she has no way of knowing without this. They are infrequent and inaccurate, but on occasion they hit home. She cannot control them and she cannot predict them, they are as irregular as lighting. She never knows when one will strike - when one will hit home - but she knows that it is there, and perhaps on occasion it will make sense.

Alahna - (Ah - La - Na)

Appearance: Alahna is a small purple dragon that is between the size of a housecat and a medium sized dog. While she is still young, and will never grow to be large in her natural form, as she ages she will discover that she can shape-shift herself into larger or smaller sizes at will (As large as 25HH, and as small as a butterfly if she wishes). Aside from her adorable size, Alahna is covered in bright sparkling scales of deep purple and a soft cream yellow on her underbelly. Her wings are very long and slender, as is her tail, and she moves with grace. She has a very sweet appearance, and one can tell that she is frequently happy. Her sharp teeth are often bared in a sort of grin, and her eyes sparkle with a joyful playfulness.

Personality: Alahna is a sweet dragon, that cares for other creatures. She is very playful and inquisitive, and sometimes gets herself into trouble trying to explore places she should not be traveling. She enjoys music, and can often be heard humming melodies with her high bird-like voice. While she is unable to speak, she has a full range of vocals, and is very good at mimicking sounds of all kinds. While young, she is also very poignant and wise, and she often sees things others miss.

Alahna is still quite young, so her personality will develop more as she ages.

She cannot see how one can let bitterness fill their soul. To her it seems nasty and filthy, while love seems so joyful and pure. To some, this makes her naive, but she is not blind to the evils of the world. She, herself, has experienced pain, despair, hatred, but has also seen the new life that comes from the shedding of the old self. She always seeks improvement, always seeks love. She knows what it is like to live in the darkness, but she also knows the joy that living in the light brings. To her, it is her goal to always help, always heal, and always bring out the best in others and herself.
History
Coming from a land of immortals, Aeoloni's history is a long and detailed one. As far as she knows, she has always been. She was born as an adult, and while she is not the first, nor the eldest, she is still old beyond years, and she could not give an age if she was asked... indeed, from her land, time is seen differently... from the view of an immortal it is irrelevant and passes without age or decay - there is no blood, no physical death. In fact, time is based more upon experience rather than seasons or years, and of that Aeo has much.

Born to learn, born to fight the evil that existed in her world - Amarna - Aeo became a warrior and a leader. In the beginning, there was no corruption, but alas! Things change, and soon a clear line came between what was good and light, and what was dark and evil. As oil and water do not mix neither did good and evil. Indeed, in Amarna you were one side or the other, and as time passed the inhabitants began to embody traits from what was in their soul. Those who sought truth, love, and purity shone bright like stars, while those who sought corruption, hate, and power began to decay in reflection of their soul.

Because of this war, Aeo was tasked, with the help of others to create an army to defeat the corruption that was born. For millennia both sides fought adamantly with tooth and claw. While there was not death, there was pain, there was isolation, there was torture. The good sought to reconcile what was lost, to save those who fell into the dark night of the soul, while the evil sought power, to overthrow that which was inherently good. They threw away their birthright, and instead of repentance, they sought to forcefully gain that which was never theirs.

Because of this war, Aeo fought, and was eventually captured. For decades she was trapped and tortured in the most horrible ways. She was strong of will, and strong of endurance, but the pain left its mark on her soul. Finally, after nearly a hundred years she was freed from imprisonment, but the torture left her hurt, and it left her bitter.

While she was hurt and bitter, Aeo chose to become free of the pain. She knew it would be hard, but she had seen what hatred could do, and she chose to take the road to healing, and chose forgiveness. It was hard, and in that pain, she still fought the evil, but instead of fighting out of obligation, she fought with a passion born of suffering. She knew what it was like to hurt, and through the pain she took it upon herself to become a vessel of light. No, she was not perfect, but she would fight, and she would forgive, even where it hurt.

Again, millennia passed, and another major war between good and evil took place. Near the end of the battle, a prophet approached Aeoloni and told her that her life would change drastically. She would be sent to live in another realm as a mortal, and she must learn how to live and die as one before returning to Amarna. No - it would not be easy, she would likely lose her power, and much else - but it was a task and a prophecy that must be fulfilled. No other reason was given, but Aeo nodded. She would do what she must, even if it meant losing everything.


Screams and shouts filled the air as the collision of light and dark took place. The light was winning, but only by a hair, and the dark fought desperately to gain back the ground they were steadily losing. Aeoloni, led the forces into battle with the help of her fellow commanders, and with the intricate plans that the war council had made, they inched forward against their opponents. Finding a spot where she could survey the battle, the amethyst and white mare scanned the ground with her liquid blue eyes. There was dark smoke where the enemy held their strongest ground, and rays of solid white light where her forces stood. In the center, where the battle was fought the hardest, black smoke and white mist rose up like a column into the sky, swirling like an angry storm cloud about to bear down upon the earth.

Searching, where the blackness was the darkest, the mare found the spot where all light seemed to be absorbed. Turning, she spotted Feldspar, a ruggedly handsome stallion and co-commander, and spoke to him through the din, "I believe I have found the spot where Vernus is hiding, I am going in and I am going in alone to finish him, so this battle can come to an end". Meeting her steady gaze, the stallion nodded, and shouted orders for the army to create a small diversion to gain Aeoloni time.

Sneaking away, the mare covered her already dirty hide in soot and created a shield around herself to hide her lightborn abilities from her enemies. She was not powerless, but she was going to do her best to avoid detection.

Making her way slowly through the thick of the battlefield, she skirted around the thickest fighting, and snuck up the hill towards her enemy. Feldspar's diversion was working as hoped, and Vernus was unaware of her presence. Ambushing him, the mare leapt down upon him, her horn alight with the power she held within herself. She was going to weaken him enough for capture. Stabbing straight at his chest with her horn, the mare braced for the force of the impact. However, just as suddenly, as she herself had attacked, the mare was hit blindsided by a force she had not known was there. Gasping, the mare flew sideways, her limbs flying. Trying to regain her balance, the mare struggled to her feet, but was too slow. Her attacker was already upon her again. Vernus had created an illusion and had been hiding - waiting for her to attack. She had known better than to assume it would be easy, yet she had hoped her target remained distracted and unaware.

Having fought Vernus before, the mare knew his strength, she could easily match him. However, she had been caught off guard by the surprise attack. Cackling menacingly the stallion lunged towards her, flames in his eyes, and green and black smoke rising from his putrid maw. She had regained her feet, and stood somewhat at ready with her horn in defense, but his attack sent her more off balance, and he drove her even farther back.

Slipping in some volcanic mud, the mare fell to her side. She already regretted her mistake, and she could see no way out, no one to help her. She was deep behind enemy lines, and it had been mere luck that she had made it this far without having to fight. Bracing herself, the mare breathed deep, and attempted to block the attack. The stallion however diverted his charge, and lunged straight for her chest. She knew this was the end. She would end up back in places where the light knew no favor. Suddenly, a swirling of bright lights, and flashes of lightning filled her vision, and just as quickly, she was spinning into a void of blackness. She knew not what was happening, but with a loss of consciousness, she knew that the enemy had either unleashed a powerful and awful weapon, or the explainable was happening.

Light Control (Primary Sorcery)
Light Control - The ability to control and manipulate light in a way that can be useful in battle or for other purposes.



-Ruby
Aeoloni is finding that she has an advanced teaching of light control sorcery. She is now able to create orbs, beams of light, and bright patches with little or no effort, and her designs are only limited by her imaginations. Along with these fantastic shows of light, she finds she is able to create more life-like illusions, and while one could walk through them, and while they are unable to make noise, it would be difficult to tell them from reality (unless you're looking for a shadow). These illusions also take much less strength, and she finds that she can create much more complex images and designs without expending nearly as much energy.

As her competency with visual illusions, orbs, and lights grows, so too does her ability to form light as a weapon or a shield. She is able to sustain and create larger and stronger tools for both offensive and defensive use. There are still flaws in her system, and her light created weapons don't work all the time, but there is generally more consistency to it. Also, while it takes a fair amount of strength, it takes considerably less than before.

Also, as her sorcery increases, she finds it making an affect on her appearance. Now, Aeoloni has a faint glow, like an aura or a halo around her, and her body emits sort of a faint light. It is hardly noticeable in the daytime, but in the shadows or in the darkness, it becomes more and more obvious. It is not something that happens consciously, but rather is caused by the atoms in her body becoming filled with the light that she now controls. She can turn it off if needed, but it is not something that she thinks about in most situations. The increase of light in her body also makes her feel lighter, and the lightness lends a slight increase in speed of her movements and agility. Lastly, when Aeoloni feels a strong emotion, visual changes can occur. For example, she sparkles when she is happy, or the light shining from her can take on a dark hue when she is angry.

-Emerald-
Aeoloni is now becoming stronger in the art of light control, it takes her little to no effort to create orbs of light that she can move and change color at will. Larger, more intricate patters and designs take more concentration, and sometimes more energy, but overall creating light comes much easier to her. As she progresses in her ability to create and manipulate light, she finds that creating visual illusions is also much easier. These illusions still take a lot of concentration, and they still appear as a hologram, but their realism is much better than before. They can also drain her energy fairly quickly, especially if they are complicated, but it is a lot easier now than it was with her sapphire stone sorcery.

Also, as before, Aeo is beginning to realize that she can solidify the light. She is now able to use it as a shield, or a weapon such as shards of light or even a small sword. However, using light in this way takes an immense amount of focus and energy, and she is only able to sustain such objects for a short amount of time before it drains her. There is also a chance that she will not be able to solidify them enough, so that their attacks are useless and they become incorporeal.

-Sapphire-
In the beginning stages of Light Control Sorcery, Aeoloni is discovering that she is regaining the ability to manipulate and create light. With focus, the mare is able to create orbs or shapes of light of varying intensity and size. A smaller more dim orbs take less energy, while larger, more intricate and brighter designs take a bit more energy and concentration.

As she begins to be able to create light, she realizes that she can also create different colors of light, and is able to make changes in already visible light. She can create some small illusions, and can make some objects appear in mid-air, or she can partially hide a solid object. Right now these illusions aren't very good, and because they are just light, one is able to go right through them.

Also, while she cannot yet use her ability in battle, Aeoloni is discovering that she can make objects out of light. These things take a lot of concentration, and drain energy quickly, but she is discovering that she can create objects like swords and shields. She can only maintain this for seconds though, and the amount of focus needed is intense. Also, because she is new at this, the light she creates isn't strong enough to hurt anyone, only strong enough to resemble the object she intends to create.
Clairvoyance (Secondary Sorcery)
Clairvoyance - the art of knowing the unseen without using any of the five senses - a sixth sense.


Aeo is now beginning to re-experience the gift of clairvoyance. In her previous land, she experienced the gift very strongly - a vast wealth of knowledge and sensations literally at her fingertips. However, in Caeleste, with the help of her Sapphire Stone, her gifts aren't quite so strong, and the weaker sensations are almost foreign to her as she relearns how to use them.

As Aeoloni begins to relearn her clairvoyance, she begins to feel a range of sensations tickling at the back of her mind. Sometimes they are very weak, sometimes they almost seem overwhelming. She begins to realize that she can feel things that are not within herself and begins to understand that she can feel the space around her - the plants, the objects, the living beings, and sometimes even spirits. She gets the general overarching sense of their presence, and in living beings and spirits, she can feel basic emotions when she focuses. In crowds it is like a swirling sensation - a buzzing so to speak - the buzzing of many souls clashing together - emotions and moods. Sometimes this can be quite overwhelming, and in these instances, the mare needs to seek solitude to regain a sense of her own inner peace. By herself, or in small groups, the turmoil is less chaotic, and the emotions of others touches at her minds, but with focus she can determine if they are not her own or someone else's.

Aside from the ability to feel, Aeo begins to discover that she has dreams of the future. Sometimes they are accurate, sometimes not. She has no control, and oftentimes they are vague. They leave her a sense of unquiet, a lack of peace, but again, she has no idea where they come from or if they hold any accuracy. They come infrequently and are unpredictable, and sometimes they leave her with a sense of unknowing.

Lastly, Aeo begins to get random snippets of information about others. Facts she has no way of knowing without this. They are infrequent and inaccurate, but on occasion they hit home. She cannot control them and she cannot predict them, they are as irregular as lighting. She never knows when one will strike - when one will hit home - but she knows that it is there, and perhaps on occasion it will make sense.
Confidant
Alahna - (Ah - La - Na)

Appearance: Alahna is a small purple dragon that is between the size of a housecat and a medium sized dog. While she is still young, and will never grow to be large in her natural form, as she ages she will discover that she can shape-shift herself into larger or smaller sizes at will (As large as 25HH, and as small as a butterfly if she wishes). Aside from her adorable size, Alahna is covered in bright sparkling scales of deep purple and a soft cream yellow on her underbelly. Her wings are very long and slender, as is her tail, and she moves with grace. She has a very sweet appearance, and one can tell that she is frequently happy. Her sharp teeth are often bared in a sort of grin, and her eyes sparkle with a joyful playfulness.

Personality: Alahna is a sweet dragon, that cares for other creatures. She is very playful and inquisitive, and sometimes gets herself into trouble trying to explore places she should not be traveling. She enjoys music, and can often be heard humming melodies with her high bird-like voice. While she is unable to speak, she has a full range of vocals, and is very good at mimicking sounds of all kinds. While young, she is also very poignant and wise, and she often sees things others miss.

Alahna is still quite young, so her personality will develop more as she ages.
