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.

  • Member of the Month
    boaz
    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!
  • Quote of the Month

    “Run along back to that mountain in that frozen hell you call home. And next time you come strolling out from between his sheets, I suggest you wash yourself. I could smell you a mile away.”

Barefoot I went and made no sound; The earth was hot beneath: The air was quivering all around, The circling kestrel eyed the ground And hung above the heath. There in the pathway stretched along The lovely serpent lay: She reared not up the heath among, She bowed her head, she sheathed her tongue, And shining stole away. Fair was the brave embroidered dress, Fairer the gold eyes shone: Loving her not, yet did I bless The fallen angel's comeliness; And gazed when she had gone. -Ruth Pitter

Appearance
Atop a long, graceful neck sits a delicate skull. Ears are long and slightly curled at the tips. The woman's waist is very slender and tapers into well formed hips. Long legs are willow slender, giving the mare a quick, dancing gait. Onyx, Ash and Snow meld into a silken pelt. Said pelt fits the slender mare like a glove. Lithe, petite, svelte, Iolaire is but a slip of a thing. She takes great pride in her appearance and can often be found cleaning her pelt. The diminutive mare is primarily black. All four fetlocks are of the purest white as if dipped in snow. This same shade of white trails from the tip of the woman's nose, between her eyes and melds into a brilliantly white mane. A thick mane of grey ash encases a slender throat and stretches the length of her spine. A mid-length mane of white hangs to one side while a long unicorn tail is grey, tipped with white. Around the slender throat hangs a leather satchel; soft from being well used. From within a perfectly formed face stare twin, almond shaped orbs of sulfur yellow, the corners tinged with a sickly green. Very expressive eyes, they are made to look larger by the ash grey coat that encircles them. A single slender brow is often arched in condescending question. At the center of her skull sits a curved horn of silverish blue.
Personality
A sweet, sultry voice spreads sarcasm equally to all. Iolaire sees no one as better than she. There are only equals and lessers. Size obviously doesn't matter to the pixie-like mare. She understands that everyone has strong points and weak points. One of her weak points is simply in the size department. She more than makes up for it with a massive ego. Quick-witted and intelligent, Io can carry on conversations with the brightest of creatures. She has little patience for the ignorant, however, and will quickly and easily make it known. Expressive eyes bleed displeasure when subjected to stupidity. Despite having talents of an unsavory nature, Iolaire does like to help others. Especially when they ask for it. She enjoys feeling as important as she knows that she is and sees helping those beneath her as an act of charity. In her mind, she's a veritable saint. Little surprises the minuscule lady. She is accepting of most beliefs as her own aren't in line with the norm. Though one might expect someone so small to be hyperactive, Iolaire is surprisingly laid back. She enjoys relaxing rather than working. Being so tiny, it's ideal that she has a guardian; a stallion that will protect her in return for certain... favors. She has had guardians in the past, but they weren't very good at their jobs and, as such, they no longer exist. Despite her rather negative disposition, that isn't to say that Iolaire isn't capable of positive emotion. Once she loved. Once she was devoted. Now, she's not sure that she has such things left within her.
History
Born to Vyraxis and an unknown male, Iolaire was one of twin foals. Her sibling, a younger brother, died days after being born. She was raised by a mother who had no business raising children. She lacked the mothering instinct, though she was a good teacher. Sadly, that lack of mothering instinct meant that Iolaire was on her own at a very early age. Because of this, the little mare has had to become rather self sufficient. Always a wanderer, a trait that she picked up from her mother, Iolaire has learned things from many different walks of life. Such encounters led her to her very first taste of love. He wasn't a great man, nor was he powerful, but he was hers. He was the first being that she'd ever allowed herself to be vulnerable around. Call it a twist of fate, but, just as they had decided to start a family, disaster struck. Wildfire ate the land. They were separated. She searched high and low for any sign of him, but he was gone. Heart hardened, she traveled to the edges of the earth, eventually being pulled into some sort of portal that swept her into a new, unexplored land. Well, at least that would keep her attention for a while. It would also serve to keep her mind off of the past.
Decay Control Sorcery
The deity, Sharad, has graced Iolaire with the gift of decay after she offered him both life and death within his shrine. Initially, the changes will be small. She will be able to will a flower to wilt, but the petals will refuse to fall. As she grows in power, the decay will grow. The petals will fall. They will shrivel. More powerful still, each step will rot the earth beneath her. She will be able to kill plant life with ease, sucking the very life from it until it crumples into blackened nothingness. Soon she will be able to rot corpses. With no more than a though, she will speed up the decaying process until only bones remain. Iolaire will delight in this as time will seem to fast forward. By the end, there will be nothing that she cannot reduce to its basest form. Will she also begin to decay as her powers grow? If not on the outside, perhaps on the inside.
