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."

Caeleste Time: 03-24-2018, 02:23 PM

Earth Control (Primary Sorcery)
Corva is an old soul - literally. She's lived many lives, some of which she can remember in vivid detail...and this life? This one she has clung to for centuries, she's traveled long and far, had one child and one lover to speak of. She's worn many faces, but kept the midnight black of her skin and deep black-purple of her eyes through all of her stages. She's come here to Caelaste at the demise of her old home. Everything from the past has vanished, but she sheds it like a reptilian skin; ready to adapt to what Caeleste may have to offer her..

After being here in this place for a few months she's found it more than idle to settle and even thinks of trying to find ways to contact her son to come here. She can feel the ancient magics coarse through the land's veins, it feeds her, it connects her to the world tree's roots. It is early still, but so far Caeleste is proving rather magnetic to the warrior woman's old spirit.
Gender Mare
Age 11 year old
Height 16.1 hh
Breed Iberian Hybrid x Standardbred
Sexuality Heterosexual
Player Psilo
Corva's lineage is mixed with many things magical and monstrous alike. Here, and for many years, she has welcomed the form of a charcoal black unicorn, hooves of bronze and eyes of deep, dark violet that looks almost black as a moonless midnight.

Her frame is sturdy, slope-chested and thickly muscled. She stands 16.1 hands at the shoulder, a silky black coat marred only by a few interesting looking scars turned pearly white. Her eyes are large and almond shaped, the iris' a midnight violet burning beneath endless lashes of the same coal black as her coat. Her ears adorn small lynx-like tufts during the winter months.

Her mane is a mess of braids and spun dreads, sometimes baring thin gold chains woven through the plaited chunks. Glowing feathers from the wing of her lover, long gone now, are forever tucked and tied against the base of her neck. Her tail is almost the length of her body, lionine with a plume of hair at its base and tip. Her hooves are cloven, bright bronze with a metallic sheen and allow her to move almost silently most times. Her hair has an auburn tint in the bright sunlight and a russet glow touches her points and underbelly.

A marking beneath her left eye mimics the current phase of the moon [ie. when the moon is a waning crescent, her marking is the same shape]. Her horn is onyx, glass like is covered in clusters of ever-changing crystals. Their colors and variations are ruled by her general mood, expiring every few months and shedding. These crystals cannot harm anyone, but they might get caught in hair and become irritating, or be collected by gem admirers (dwarves love 'em!). These pieces break off often, either from impact or expiration. Typically 1"-3" in size (majority of them very small with a single long crystal point or twin).

SHAPESHIFTING | favored forms
bearded vulture . margay . black jaguar . caracal
- leopard seal . ladoga ringed seal

Over time Corva's personality has evolved, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. For the last few centuries she's enjoyed a solitary life-style save for her biannual visitations with her lover or that short eight months or so she spent raising her son. She's been broody and quick to snap at strangers, but motherhood softened that a bit and has left her with less razory edges, so to speak.

She's reserved, hardly enthusiastic on small talk or empty gestures. She's a philosopher by nature, holding her spirituality dear and remains stoic about the subject.

Corva's a warrioress first, but often settles for a neutral stance if she can help it. She's fought enough wars, big and small to have dulled her fire for fighting or rebellion. Perhaps the new energy in Caeleste will change that - it remains to be seen what face she might wear in this mysterious realm.
Corva’s history is something that cannot really be explained by one being, or even with one page, or one booklet for that matter. So I will condense it, keep it more recent. As I’ve said, she’s had many forms, faces, and approaches to life in this strange and ever changing universe we’re all a part of. Within the last twenty or so mortal years she has been lurking around a place not known to anyone here, loving someone who she’ll never see again and bringing a strong, almost scary strong, reptilian Prince into this said universe. Her last home was, let’s say devoured and it isn’t somewhere she particularly enjoyed anyway… The population dispersed and she took her young son with her, travelling with him for half a year or so before the young stallion decided conquest was his calling. Corva did not share is passion for his goal, but she let him go without protest (not that he would have listened) and they separated.

Skip skip skip a few years, a few worlds, a few realms, and she’s now here in Caeleste. She’s not brought her past with her, hardly even her broody attitude she’s sported for so many years. Was it motherhood? The marriage of her soul to another? The loss of a soul mate? She isn’t sure, but she’s decided to leave history as such and move along.

In Helovia her name was Chernobyl, a title given to her by someone and she never changed it. She's had many names, but this one in particular she grew to hate so she goes by the name of one of her Great Great Grandmothers now.
Earth Control (Primary Sorcery)
Corva's had many elements in her favor over her centuries of practicing magic – but her most favored has and always will be that of earth The trinity of its grit, fluidity and solidity all at once has always fueled a spark somewhere in her quiet heart.

• Creates underground pockets of magma, making spouts (mini-volcanos)
• Loves to freely manipulate & create magma
• Psychokinesis with any earthen thing (trees, plant-life, rocks, terrain etc)
• Find, extract, break ore (all natural metals)
• Till and fertilize soil
• Sculpting
• Painting with Earth-made colors and mediums

All things are medium sized, nothing too big. Her energy is not concentrated at this low level, so she may only do minor things for now. If she over uses she will get exhausted and must rest to recharge herself. She is learning her way around magic again and the sorcery is clumsy, but with practice she will get smoother, much more natural at it.

Upon more advanced levels she will be able to do things like build structures, make travelable tunnels, make bigger spouts and move bigger objects etc.
