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!

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.

Appearance
Appearance

Indy is a mix between a warmblood and a mustang horse. His sire was a mustang, tamed by a Sioux tribe, his dam a warmblood mare. She was the spoils of war after fighting off a group of Spanish explorers. His mixed heritage has resulted in a fairly even build, that can't quite be pinpointed to one breed or the other.

In general his build is athletic, without running to fat or bulky. His muscles are lean and well defined under his coat. He's a buckskin tri-colour paint, meaning his coat consists of sandy brown, creamy white and black. He has a typical dark dorsal stripe, with two little fins running down his shoulders on either side. His legs show some barring as well as a white coronet on his left hind and a long white sock on his right fore, to about his knee. The hooves under the white markings are a more pinkish hue, whereas his other hooves are a soft grey. His left hind hoof has a few darker stripes running down it.

His mane, tail and forelock are mainly a mixture of charcoal black and white, with a few sparse strands of the light brown of his coat mixed in. Both his mane and tail are chopped of in a rather unnatural straight line, he likes it this way. It looks neater in his opinion. His tail is of normal length, his mane rather on the longer side. His forelock grows wild and long, often obscuring his eyes. His left eye is a bright blue, his right eye an olive green. He wears feathers in his mane and tail, attached with crimson beads. The amount of feathers he has depends on his mood, usually it's two in his mane, three in his tail.

His markings are sparse on his body, so the main impression one gets is dun, before one thinks paint. There's a white splash on the underside of his belly and around his haunches. His other main white marking runs over the top of his neck, going further down on the right side than the left. The white part in his mane lines up with this marking. His nose is a sooty black and his ears are tipped with a black outline.
Personality
Personality

In reality Indy is a big softy. He loves making others happy, taking care of them, rescuing people that need saving. However this innermost core of his personality is usually hidden behind a tough exterior and a charming smile. He prefers keeping his true self well protected beneath the surface. He'll be nice, behave like a gentleman, charm everyone in a ten foot radius, but all this will happen without him showing who he really is.

Indy is empathic and easily moved to emotions by other's actions; he knows showing this is not a smart move. This is why he generally shows a more distant, though endearing, facade. He is likeable and easily forms loose relationships with others. True friendship is another matter entirely; though it isn't hard, it mainly takes perseverance and time.

He can stand his own against most other types of personality, he won't take shit from people if he doesn't want to. Despite his soft core and his knight in shining armour complex he isn't afraid to stir up trouble if he feels it's justified or necessary. He won't stand for bullying or mistreatment of others and will meddle.

Though he doesn't think of it often, he often does feel homesick for his tribe. He loved his herd there, the humans, his job... Sometimes this will surface and he'll feel lonely and perhaps a bit morose. Indy tends to feel this, without showing it. He's what one could call a private equine. He'll happily share his war stories, but anything more emotional and you may be in for a gentle rebuke.

Indy isn't aggressive, he likes to resolve things diplomatically where possible. Yet if the situation calls for it, he won't hesitate to act. Swift and decisive he knows his mind and won't deviate from his morals. Right and wrong are important to him and he believes it is important to do the right thing, even if it means giving up something you love. Don't let his generally calm and laid-back attitude fool you, if you cross him, or hurt someone he loves, he will take action and it won't be pretty.
History
History

Indy was born to a warmblood mother in a Sioux tribe. He was raised to be a war horse, receiving training and a lot of care from his human keepers. He was by far one of the tallest and strongest horses they owned and as such he was considered special and valuable. He grew up happy and strong, never lacking for anything. Indy didn't mind taking humans around on his back and the paint they used on him actually made him happy. It was nice to be valued, he loved doing what the humans wanted of him. The blankets that covered his back were invariably soft and comfortable. Their weight on his back was generally nothing to him, so why would he complain? They cared for him, fed him, and if he got injured they treated it. Indy was content.

Shortly after he turned four they went on a raid, to defend the borders of their territory. The battle did not go as planned, and despite Indy's best efforts his rider got hit. He himself also got several injuries. A bullet wound to the shoulder, a gash over his ribs... When all was said and done the others fled back, but he couldn't follow. He was taken by the ones they'd been attacking, by all accounts they weren't like his previous owners. The colour of their skin was different and though they fed him it wasn't the same. The gear they put on him once he was healed was heavy, uncomfortable. It pinched his withers and the metal in his mouth was painful. He didn't like it at all, so Indy figured out how to unlock the stall door and stole away in the middle of the night.

By the time he was five he was living wild and succeeding quite handily at it. He was hanging out with a bachelor herd, living off the land and generally just having a good time. They evaded capture and occasionally managed to sneak off with a mare from a larger herd. Just for the fun of it. Indy lost this herd when they got chased by horse catchers, he was not in the mood to have to wear heavy, pinching things again. Nor was he in the mood to have more metal stuffed in his mouth, no siree. Being alone wasn't good for him, so he spent a lot of time wandering the plains he called home, in search of company.
Plant Control (Primary Sorcery)
Plant Control Sorcery

Indy’s plant control has become a natural part of his being and is linked to his emotions. At the moment it is hard for him to control this sorcery separate from them. When he is in a neutral to happy mood (which is most of the time), flowers will sprout whatever he touches. If he’s walking he’ll leave a trail of blooming flowers, if he’s rolling a patch… If he sniffs a tree that too will grow flowers. You get the idea. When Indy is angry or scared anything he touches will sprout thorny bushes in an effort to keep himself safe or harm others. Nothing he grows will harm him.

Currently Indy’s control is not very good. He can make flowers or plants sprout up to about two metres away from him, if he really concentrates. Enough to trip someone up or surprise them, but not enough to do too much damage. With solid focus he can grow specific plants, from a bud to a full-grown tree. The growing of plants doesn’t sap energy or strength if they’re small to medium sized; however a full-blown tree will wear him out.

The fact that he leaves plants wherever he goes makes him easy to follow, for those who wish to. Indy rather likes bringing a spot of brightness to the world. Not to mention how useful it is to be able to grow grass in a barren desert…
