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!

    A wonderful asset to Caeleste as a whole! Not only does she dedicate her time as a staff member but she also spends a lot of her time being an amazing writer! 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
Death is an angular creature made up of sharp edges and long legs. Her coat was once an inky black, though over the years has saturated to a lighter shade with hints of brown. Her legs, muzzle, chest and barrel have taken on an even lighter shade. Her sclera is dark, almost black, and her eyes are a dark crimson shade. She has a refined head with a nearly straight profile and heavy lidded eyes. Her nostrils are large for optimal intake of breath. Her neck is upright and narrow, almost swan-like in it's appearance. She has a long back that leads into her straight tail, whose smooth hairs almost never tangle. A powerful sloping shoulder leads into her narrow ballerina-esque front legs.

Despite her beauty, Death does not carry herself with confidence. She keeps her tail tightened against her hindquarters like a frightened dog at most times. She is the first to shy away from any confrontation and generally backs away from physical contact. Her eyes are weary and tired, often fearful. Her ears often limp or put out to the sides in a questioning manner. She holds her head much lower than others, avoiding eye contact.
Personality
It's a bit ironic that death itself would be fearful of others, however the basis of Death's persona seems to revolve around this. She is timid around strangers, hesitant to come close to them. And even more hesitant to make actual physical contact due to the years of her profession. (Despite the fact that her touch was not always deadly.) She is generally skittish and keeps to herself, avoiding eye contact. Elevated voices and outright being screamed at don't sit well with her and will often bring flashbacks from angry horses refusing to believe their time was up.

She is, once you get past her fences, a very loving and kind creature. She wants nothing more than to be happy and loved. She is in love with life. The more vibrant and colorful someone is, the happier she is to be around them. She yearns to find her place in the world that doesn't involve death and reaping. She simply wants to live and be happy.
History
Death was created when time began, cast into this world from the fog and feeling of dread. Her name was more a title than something a parent would lovingly give to their child. She was a primordial deity, tasked with only one thing. She was death. For her entire life she was there, helping those pass on who were unwilling. She was even there for those hanging onto their life by a thread, holding them until their last breaths would leave their lips. Despite the stigma associated with her title, Death was not an evil creature. She found no pleasure in giving anyone the kiss of death and merely told herself it was, in fact, their time. When she was still young, though never a child, she came across a creature laying in his own blood. He was coughing and spitting up crimson, only staining himself further. Unable to cope with cutting a young life short, Death drew forth her essence and brought him back from the brink of death.

This was a mistake. She had upset the balance, and so someone else died. It was from that moment on that she knew she had to do what she was tasked to do. She could not take pity on these creatures and could offer them what comfort she was able in their last moments on this earth. She continued on her job for thousands of years, never once allowing the job to effect her the way it once had.

Though that could only last so long. As death, it was inevitable that she would find herself in a place where many deaths occurred. And she found herself in the bloodied valleys where many wars had gone down. There was always a surplus of poor souls longing to see their loved ones once more while they sobbed. She did what she could, often singing to them from the confines of her plane of existence. Those with still beating hearts could not see or hear her, but those who were right on the edge of existence could. Cursed as the devil by some and accepted by others, it was becoming a heavier burden with every soul.

And then he appeared. He was light and life. A massive stallion with rippling muscles, a bright smile, and all the strength one could force into one single man. He was so alive. He was strong and virile, and Death fell in love with him from afar. Sometimes she would follow him, hidden within her own plane. He was an accomplished veteran and she saw him often when cleaning up the battlefield. Though this feeling would not last. The only thing meant to last was her.

Eventually the stallion's own cockiness saw him struck down with an arrow through the jugular. Convulsing and spitting blood he dropped on the ground, thrashing in the mud. Death was upon him to offer what she could, a loving touch of her quivering muzzle as she pulled the last of his essence from his body. She didn't know what she expected, but she hadn't been prepared for this. He was awful. He refused to believe he had died and harassed her as she continued across the field to help those in need.

And then he attacked her.

She was in shock. There had been others who had reacted in a similar way over the years, fueled by rage and fear. But the way he came at her was terrifying. It's quite a feat to scare death itself. He prepared to strike her, though he could not. Before he even came into contact with him he disappeared into an inky black fog. Gone. Gone forever. Not allowed to pass on to something greater, she simply blinked him out of existence.

She was created to be death. And she no longer wished to be that. She continued on her work, unable to do anything else. She remained in her plane, watching happy families around her. She wished for a simple life. A life filled with love, not blood and emptiness. She had fallen in love with life.
