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
Dragon like. That is one specific way to describe the beast.

His body was like he had bathed in a pond of his enemies blood; it was that of a deep, dark red. Only around his under belly, his chest and around his neck showed splatters of bright red shaded into the rest of him. From afar he appeared to be entirely black except for the certain brighter red spots. His eyes were of a mismatched bright red and ice blue, as the right orb was ice blue and the left was blood red; has snake pupils.

Valor was one to be decorated with many, many battle scars and wounds. He had large scar over the right side of his face, beginning from the base of his ear to the end of his muzzle; they were of three scratches straight down. Deep. He had similar three count scratch down his deep, broad chest, just as deep. Along with his hindquarters. He had tussled with something evil, but that story was for another time. It was one he actually preferred not to speak of.

Four feet long twisted horns of black and red hued were attached to his skull between his ears that went straight back. Multiple similar, yet shorter horns grew near the longer two. Hundreds of shorter spikes ran down his neck, his back and all the way down to his long, thick mass of a tail. He held no hair; no mane or tail, save for the feathering around his fetlocks. His hide was covered in thousands of hardened scales that helped as armor against his flesh.

Massive wings were much like a bat, tattered and leathery. Not like your average feathered wings. You could plainly see their bone structure, as the skin upon the wings were transparent. Although doubtful looking, they were more than enough to carry Valor's large frame anywhere he wished to go. One of his useless, yet intimidating talents is being able to blow fire from his nostrils when he is angered. It is painless, does no harm to anyone. It's more of a mere warning sign to stay out of his way.

Bright royal blue war paint was infused with his hide upon each shoulder going toward the middle of his chest; a staple in his heritage meaning he was one not to be reckoned with. Only Warlords were blessed with the war paint.

Sharp cloven hooves that helped him in battle as well as keeping stable with climbing mountains and narrow ledges. Mouth was receded back to his cheek bones, the end curving upward toward his ears. His mouth was riddled with sharp teeth like a shark's. Within that mouth was a foot long black lizard-like tongue.




[ MISCELLANEOUS INFO. ]


FACE / VOICE: Khal Drogo from GoT.
Personality
To describe the inner workings of Valor isn't a simple task to do.

The years have done a lot to shape him; as he used to be this wickedly cruel, devious being who caused destruction toward anything and everything in his past. He wouldn't think twice of raping an innocent female who just happened to stroll passed him, or maiming someone who even so much as glanced at him the wrong way. The consequences of the action never crossed his mind, he never cared of anyone's feelings other than his own. That was the only one he looked out for and that was number one, himself. He would step on anyone's head to get to the top, as long as it got him what he wanted.

His attitude slowly changed as he progressed. When he found his mate and settled into a tribe of his very own, his boiling hot temper ceased and he became laid-back and humble. He was purely happy with his love and their child-to-be growing in her stomach. But that hadn't lasted long before it came crashing down - with the attack on his mate, that's what started it all. Valor became his old blood-thirsty, hateful self. He threw away everything in search of a better home, only to have lost the battle and it ending in his near death.

Upon recovering and finding out his mate had betrayed him, it awoke the hibernating demon inside.

The short lived humble man now turned dark again, not giving a single care for anyone around him. Not anyone's feelings or wants, not unless he could manipulate them to benefit himself. If it meant breaking their heart in the process then so be it, that was just a plus in the end. For someone else to feel the pain that he had, he would be joyous.

Although at times his laid-back self peeks through, it isn't often in front of others, if he can help it. He vowed to never become vulnerable again, to never allow a female bring out such a softness in him. They were all whores - just as his father always taught him.

Now as days go on in such a new territory, we'll see how further Valor progresses or recedes back to his old destructive ways.
History
[ the young years ]
Born within a massive tribe within the far North, a place that didn't know anything but cold and snow. His father, Valdemar, was a "Khal" or otherwise known as the leader of their large tribe. Valor was birthed from his mother, Solveig, who was the "Khaleesi" or also known as the leader's main lady of the tribe. Within the first few years of his life, he was often trained with his father's "Bloodriders" who were his soldiers, they kept him from the moment the sun rose up until the sun went down. He was trained in many skills, from fighting in an all out brawl to hunting for the tribe. Survival skills were a serious thing to acquire, living within the severe cold temperatures and deep snow, it was important to know what to do and what not to do while out. Avalanches were a massive issue they came across but with knowledge passed down, they became easier to avoid. Not loosing your hunt in the deep depths of snow was another one; the many woes of dealing with the arctic weather of the North.

Upon coming onto his fourth year of life, his mother had given birth to his only other full blooded brother. Being lead, Valdemar got his pick of any woman he wanted and did he want many. Which often led to many half-siblings. However there hadn't been another child born from Solveig and Valdemar; until now. It was the sunrise of her giving birth, the foal hadn't so much gotten out of her womb prior to Valor attempting to murder his own brother. Which caused Valdemar to retaliate and attack his eldest, and of course it being a domino affect, Solveig dragged herself to her feet to attack Valdemar. The poor woman had no choice, Valdemar turned and destroyed her without a single breath. Enraged at this pointless act, Valor turned on his father and slaughtered him.

Within their tradition, once the Khal was killed, his "Kos" - which were two of his commanders - would fight each other to take over the title as leader. It wasn't the traditional "passed down to the heir" type of thing. Who ever won also killed any living children of the previous Khal to eliminate any chances of rivalry. Not thinking clearly of that, Valor fled the tribe, not wanting to be a part of it anymore. He was only gone for a few hours before returning, only to find multiple men trying to trample his young brother. Knowing that was all he had left of his mother, angered boiled within and he attacked. He took on all five men and killed them all, saving his young brother and urging the rest of the broodmares to take care of him.

[ short lived leadership ]
After that, Valor became Khal over the tribe which was made up of thousands of others. Everyone ranging from young to old, healthy to sickly, warriors to servants. They all took after Valor now. He led them with grace and a firm hand, he was cruel and nasty. He savagely raped women, killed many of his own men without much of a reason, and stomped upon any foals that walked in his path, whether they be his or not. He didn't care too much for being lawful, he believe only the strongest should survive.

Needless to say, Valor grew bored quickly and left after a few years, leaving his brother Björn in charge. Yes, the one he had originally tried to kill.

[ Elysium history ]
It hadn't taken him long to come across a new place.

He came upon many faces, most of those who were nothing but blurs in his memory; until he met the true love of his life, Arête. She was true beauty, inside and out. It wasn't quite love at first sight, but as the dragon got to know her, the further he fell. It wasn't much after that, that he overthrown a leader and took land for his own. Naming Arête as his Khaleesi to rule by his side as he built up his Khalasar. They soon conceived a foal of their own; however as he love grew heavy with their child, she had been attacked by a rogue stallion. Savastos. He had brought his Khaleesi and their baby close to their deaths, but due to her healing powers it had been enough to save them. He rested with her for a while before setting out for that stallion's blood. And oh, he got his revenge.

But his mind began to run wild - the sudden need to overtake a home that better suited their needs. That suited his need to protect and build a fortress around his little family. After taking a visit to each land he decided upon the Eternal Woods, the close lived trees was what he sought after. It was settled at that; by dawn the dragon would challenge. Not knowing of Etain's state - he was blinded with rage and regret. He didn't care to learn about his challenger's physical state. Valor knew nothing of what was going on around Elsyium. All he had cared was Arête and their unborn child.

The battle had been brutal. Etain's father, Zuriel, had answered in his pregnant daughter's place. That was when he had learned the Queen of the Wood was heavy with child. While it saddened him, he couldn't back down. He promised Zuriel a permanent place for Etain and her children if he were to win - and he meant that. All while Valor had everything on his side - the strength, the weight, his scaled armor along with his offense - the few hits Zuriel had snaked in had been enough to knock the dragon off his game. While bleeding internally and suffering from a great concussion, Valor backed down and stumbled to the beach not far from the Colosseum. He hadn't known the outcome of that old man - all he knew was that it had been one hell of a fight. And he was close to dying himself.

That night had been a huge blur to him; he wasn't sure how he survived the night. The only thing he remembered was gasping for air and his entire body convulsing, faint whispers of familiar voices. He awoke the next morning to the waves crashing against his face - he felt like he had been dead a hundred years. Eyes opened to find himself completely alone, but faints scents of those he cherished lingered. Finding strength in himself, he managed to find his way back to Carinae, his heart ached for his Khaleesi. He sensed she had foaled, somehow. It was such a strange feeling to him.

By the graces he made it to the borders, he had been greeted by his brother, Björn. In the frantic of the news, his younger brother of course acted as if he was seeing a ghost. Valor was supposed to be dead, or at least that was the word. But there the massive dragon stood before Björn's eyes. That was when the dragon had learned of the fate of Carinae and his Khaleesi - they were no more. She had given away the crown. She didn't wish to lead any longer. Which only meant one thing, Valor no longer ruled. He probably no longer had a home - did Arête even want him anymore?

Valor felt like a complete and utter failure. In his mind, he was no longer worthy of her presence. Their child shouldn't know him to be the man that he was at that moment - a dastardly disgrace. But he had to see them... one last time.

In the middle of the night under a full moon, the dragon had stalked the two - careful not to set off her guard dog, Ozereus. With his magic of shadows, he surrounded himself to blend in with the darkness. Only to reveal himself briefly before his beautiful Khaleesi; snake pupils taking in the appearance of their... daughter. He wanted nothing more than to rush in and embrace the two. He had a daughter. A beautiful little girl. The voice of his father disrupted these warm thoughts, urging him that he must leave. Now.

And that was the night the dragon disappeared without a trace.

[ Caeleste ]
Twelve year old Valor now came upon a new land, Caeleste. Let's see what he can get into.
Fire Control Sorcery

FIRE CONTROL

"One of the five major elements which make up this world, the spark that ignited genesis, the light which nurtures life, and the illumination of judgment which vanquishes all evil. While at times a gentle blessing given to men by gods, it is also a terrible curse which annihilates everything. Its name is fire."
― Stiyl Magnus (A Certain Magical Index)
[ sapphire stone ]
As of this moment, while Valor had been able to blow fire from his nostrils before; he can now feel his throat get white-hot, but he just gets to the point where he coughs up sparks. He can't quite get his mind to focus long enough to create much of anything yet, however he is quickly learning. He can manipulate the air to make short, brief heat waves. He caught a leaf on fire once, it was short lived before it went out. Has found out certain hot temperatures does not burn him like it would others.
