Setting
Year III | Winter
The once auburn leaves and crimson colors are now gone, swept away by the strong winds leaving bare trees in its wake. The clouds also seemed to have swept in fast, plummeting the ground with snowflakes. All of Caeleste is quickly blanketed in snow and not just a thin layer of it either. The snow already reaches up to the knees of the more taller equines in most areas. Even the temperatures feel a lot colder than what they normally would be for winter. Snow storms tend to be hitting every other week or so, making all the habitants dreading what it will be like further into the winter. The rumours of a harsh winter are proving to be correct. Even the ice coating lakes are difficult to break through. Word is beginning to spread that this will be one long tough cold winter.

  • Character of the Month
    Aeoloni
    Aeoloni is a skilled warrior and is exciting to watch in battles. Even watching her in battle it is easy to see that she stands up as being a leader naturally. These skills are utilized well within Illustris Monastery - which was rebuilt and managed by the pegasus. It shows the joy and kindness the mare has towards others here within Caeleste. She is a mare you can count on if you need a helping hand.

Appearance


Khaa is a regal and majestic looking creature; so much so, that it is very easy for anyone to tell that he once lived a life of immense luxury. He has a tall slender body, coming to stand at 18.2hh, although the addition of his horns and disc offer the illusion of something taller. Whilst most things about his Arabian features are in proportion, he does support an additional set of ears; his normal ears are longer, almost like that of a jackal, with two smaller ears to the sides. Hanging from each lower ear are two golden disc earrings. Protruding from his forehead is a short horn, whilst two curved Impala horns protrude from behind his ears, all of which are gold in colour, and above his horns hovers a golden disc. There are also two small horns that protrude from his shoulders.

His body is chocolate roan in colour; his head and legs are the darkest areas of his body, fading out into a lighter creamier colour. In a few places on his rump, barrel, and neck are a couple of stray dark spots. Each of his four hooves is a shining gold as if they were made of the metal themselves. Gold tattoo markings are painted on his skin in many places; both back legs support two solid bands with spots beneath the lower bands; both front legs support 3 different sized solid bands, again with spots beneath the lower bands; around his upper neck are 3 large bands, with spots beneath the band closest to his shoulders. Around his eyes, which are red with slightly slit pupils, down his cheek and around his jaw is more gold banding, and down the sides of his face are spots reminiscent of teeth. There are also markings on his ears, and gold lines them as well.

Khaa’s mane is kept neat and straight, cropped to knee length, and is of the soft chocolate-caramel colour that makes up his body, although it becomes lighter at the very ends; he has no forelock to conceal his red eyes. Now, his tail, well, he doesn’t like to talk about that. Where once there was a long and beautiful tail full of the same coloured hair as his mane, there is now only the bone and muscle of a leonine tail, the skin that remains is covered in scars as a result of being burnt, and so he keeps it wrapped in special bandages that offer the illusion it is how his tail is meant to appear.

Sometimes, Khaa may be adorned in various decorative outfits, although his favourite is the ruby encrusted collar with fur lining its front, and attached is a large shoulder piece, also encrusted with rubies, and is shaped with wings on the sides with a long blanket of white silk.

Personality


| Observant | Quiet | Stoic | Scholarly | Religiously Devout | Scornful | Sceptical | Compassionate | Grateful | Hetero-Polygamus |


In his early years, Khaa was a good-natured creature, focused purely on being the best he could be so that he may one day achieve his desired role as a priest to the Gods. Eventually, he achieved that goal and spent many happy years working with some of the minor Gods and Goddesses at first, before he became a Priest of Ma’at. He learnt many things and was an eager scholar who enjoyed learning how the law and afterlife judgement worked. But after being told to flee from his homeland by Ma’at herself, after Set’s violent attack that threatened them all, part of Khaa’s heart began to darken with hatred towards the warmongering God.

He is now a relatively quiet creature, although incredibly observant and attentive. He is typically stoic, although will show emotions if he feels like it. He is still a devout follower of his beloved Gods and prays to them whenever he feels he needs the strength to continue on. He is sceptical of many, but this does not stop him from helping those in need when necessary; after all, his own heart must remain as pure as possible if he is to eventually make it into the afterlife.

Should ladies find themselves in his presence, they will find that he is a kind-hearted and sweet creature that cares deeply, and he will do what he can to ensure they are comfortable and cared for.

History


Khaa Se-isi Bakari had always been an incredibly devout creature when it came to his homeland and his Gods. Hailing from the sandy landscapes of an ancient civilisation, where the Gods physically roamed the earth as giant beings, he spent his youth in the temples, learning and studying to become a priest, wishing nothing more than to work his way up into a position that allowed him to be closer to the Gods he admired.

The day finally arrived where he was appointed as one of the priests to Ma’at, the Goddess of justice, truth, and of order, and a daughter of Ra. He learnt many things from her, from the workings of the law, to how her unique feather was used in judging the heart of those on their journey to the afterlife. It was an interesting and educational experience in his life and one that he still cherishes.

For an entire decade, Khaa lived a comfortable life serving Ma’at, and had, on quite a few occasions, met the King of the Gods in the flesh. The first time had been by accident, in a way. He had been summoned to the Goddess’s chambers, as he had become somewhat like a confidant for her, someone to lay her troubles on when she needed to vent or discuss something that was troubling her. Whilst there, Ra had simply popped in for a rather surprise visit. It had been incredibly awkward, but Khaa had managed to keep himself out of their way, and not gawk at his beloved God. There were a few less awkward encounters after that, and the pair even exchanged greetings and a few sentences here and there; although nothing personal, Khaa would never forget their meetings.

It was during what was meant to be a grand celebration that Set challenged the other Gods once more (as this had been a common occurrence every few decades or so), and fires ravaged through the temples. In an attempt at trying to usher Ma’at to safety, Khaa’s long tail caught fire, but there was no time to stop and put it out as they escaped.

Ma’at herself wrapped his tail in bandages once they were free of Set’s wrath, and then told him to leave their lands; travel, seek out a new home and let the Gods die out, dissolve into myths and legends. It was time for the world to be free of the physical embodiments of their Gods. And so with a gentle smile, the Goddess used her magic to send Khaa away from his homeland, to explore the world away from the chaos created by Set.

Khaa would never relinquish his beliefs, however, no matter where his feet carried him. He would always hold Ra in the highest regard and would be forever thankful for the life experiences he had been given. But he found it hard over the years that followed, as he wandered aimlessly through the endless deserts and jungles, and a deep-seeded hatred formed for Set; if it hadn’t been for that power-hungry, warmongering al’ahmaq, he would still have his beautiful tail, and would still be in the temples he loved, serving the Gods as he had always dreamed of.

Sun Control (Primary Sorcery)


Bestowed upon him by the Sun God himself, Khaa has been blessed with the very sun’s abilities.

In this initial stage, Khaa is only beginning to understand what these powers can do. Whilst he is capable of creating immense heat from his own being, as well as play with magnetic fields, it is a dangerous magic to play with whilst in the presence of others, or without very meticulous concentration and training. If needed, he can increase or decrease the heat around him, or of singular objects like a fire pit or candle, as well as the vibrancy of which said flames glow. He can also use his magic in tandem with the gold plate between his horns like a solar energy unit, allowing him to absorb the sun’s energy throughout the day so he does not need to sleep as frequently as others. In a dangerous situation, he may be capable of creating a solar energy shield temporarily; this could be used to defend against weather, a natural disaster, or an attack from another.

As his powers progress and he learns how to control them more, he will find that he is capable of far more than he ever could have thought possible.

Confidant




A scroll was given to Khaa by the Goddess Ma'at before he departed his homeland, and was told to use it if he ever felt that his hatred was threatening to overtake him. He took this scroll to Greeshma's shrine and was sent on a journey.

Travelling throughout Devil's Perch, Khaa came across a cave that was shelter to a Caracal that had been caught in a recent sand storm. She had sand in her eyes that made it hard for her to open them and stand the light. Speaking to her softly, Khaa rapped some of his silk around her eyes and lead her to the nearby oasis to wash the sand from her eyes. She then made herself comfortable on his back, apparently with no plans of leaving him alone.

Sati, as she is called, is a young female Caracal. She is the same standard light tan-sandy colouring as any of her breed, with long ears that are dark at the tips. Her feet are a darker brown than the rest of her body, as is the top of her tail. A simple looking creature that blends well with the sands of the Perch. The only abnormality the feline has in comparison to any regular Caracal is her brilliant Nile blue eyes. She stands at 50cm in height, and will not grow any larger.
