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

She is a child of obvious dragon heritage. Her lineage is peculiar, gifting her the stocky limbs and sloping skull of a Clydesdale but the slight torso and muscular neck of a thoroughbred. Granted, the draft influence in her parentage is far more evident, but you would not be surprised to hear of the lanky ancestors drafted into the beginnings of her family tree.

The entirety of her sleek coat is an airbrushed pink peach, muted and slightly pastel in tone as it transitions to a mottled rosewood running over her upper back, down her rump, forward to her poll and kissing both of her knees. The same colour whispers beneath her eyes and appears once more on the end of her pointed nose. The dragoness’ mouth is peculiarly elongated, an irregular gash cutting through her skull to curl upwards just beneath both eyes. It is no mistake, merely a strange draconic characteristic, and her tongue and teeth appear perfectly normal. From the rear corner of her left eye appears a short line of stitches, though it is unclear if these are genetic or truly sewn into her skin. They are ridged to the touch, though this could be due to a strange mutation of reptilian scales. Both eyes are a glowing pastel blue, emitting constant rays of ethereal periwinkle light that occasionally sparks and shimmers if you look closely enough. The same shade paints irregular patterns on the lady’s upper lip and both sides of her rump, and appears again on the underneath of her barrel and chest, as if reflecting the glow of a luminous body of blue water.

Atop her crown, Cynnique sports not 2 but 6 ears, 3 on each side. The front and back ears on each side are a touch smaller than those in the middle, and these middle ears are also adorned with 3 golden piercings each. All gold – one small stud at the top, a larger sphere beneath that, and a cuff holding a small crystal jewel at the base. Between her 6 ears perches an incredible horn, twisted and gnarled in the same colour as her base as it extends her already colossal height by over a foot. The tip of the horn glows blue like her eyes, though the glow is more of a wisping fire than shining light. A golden cuff midway up the horn and a smaller cuff at the tip are connected by 3 golden chains, one holding a row of amber beads.

At the end of stocky, powerful legs are four cloven rosewood hooves, partially obscured by the fluff of her peach feathers. Such feathers extend into a strange blue mist such that you cannot tell where the fur ends and the mist begins. The same mist makes up the fae’s mane and tail, fading into her coat in the same manner. It looks and behaves like fire, flickering upwards and spitting baby blue sparks as if to give warning. It is not hot to touch, though, in fact it couldn’t possibly burn anyone. Rather, if you should touch it you would feel an all-encompassing shudder of cold, though the substance would not feel any different to stagnant air.

Perhaps her most defining feature is the pair of colossal wings that sprout from her muscular shoulders. With a wingspan of 9 feet on either side, the pink feathered appendages are a sight to behold. They are painted in the same gradient as her body, causing the rosewood dapples to extend down each shoulder, and tendrils of blue mist adorn the long flight feathers in irregularly placed stripes. While her makeup may seem intimidating, her expression is often soft enough to dispel any fear strangers may experience in her company. Beyond all that is draconic and towering, she is barely more than a child, and the childlike innocence has not yet drifted away.
Personality

She is timid, possessive over a childlike innocence while her age is well past juvenile mannerisms. Her shy demeanor is thanks to a lifetime of childhood tragedy, a past that has gifted her with chronic anxiety and pessimism. The girl has faced a rollercoaster of emotional turmoil, the details of which are written in her personal history book, and her own personality has meandered with it. A babyish cluelessness created her to be naïve and overly trusting, though as her healing powers grew her ego grew with them. Narcissism threw itself into the mix, turning Cynnique to an arrogant shell of a woman. Where once she was loving, she became loathing, and where once she was modest she became brattish and ignorant. She believed herself to be all that was good in the world, a living and breathing miracle, til life became her downfall. Cast in the shadow of yet another tragedy, the fae lost all knowledge of what to do with herself. Months of isolation turned her cruelty to self-hatred and sadness, casting the egotistical maniac from her shell and instead leaving it fragile and empty. She must learn how to live as if living from the beginning. Having forgotten how to take care of herself in the most basic of ways she is frail and unstable, unable to eat and severely dehydrated to the point that she can no longer so much as shed a tear for what she has lost. She is wracked with daily depression and has found herself able to trust nothing, nobody. Everything is cause for fear and everything is a reason to run but her body no longer enables her to do so. Though, why should she run when the travesties of her crazed period of vanity painted her in such a light that she should deserve every pain that comes her way. No matter the reason behind the weapons thrown her way, she believes that she did something to warrant all of them hitting their target.

Once, she loved. She loved harder than any girl or boy might figure themselves able to, but in consequence, she lost more than she ever could’ve dreamt. Her heart is truly warm, having melted the ice that once captured it and caused it to freeze, but the walls around it are built high. More than anything the girl wishes to let the walls crumble and fall but she cannot quite bring herself to face the truth of genuine care and friendship, not yet. What worth would it be to let someone in when all that could happen is the loss of another friend, or more? It would be foolish of her, to say the least.

Not only can she cherish loved ones with more grace and passion than can be imagined, her heart longs to help all those who are in need. Though her powers of healing have left her for a brief flicker of time, she believes them to be her only true purpose in the world. The girl would go beyond all distrust and fear she felt to help another creature in need, and she learned her lesson the first time not to let it go to her head. Peace and gentle kindness are all the world needs to get along, and it is the least she can do to be the smallest of contributions to the world’s wellbeing.
History
A past based on tragedy doth never make a happy child.

Born to a Kingdom, beneath its King but a bastard child of the royal man and his handmaid, she was not the most official of Princesses. In fact, she was hardly a Princess at all. Cynnique was practically spat on by her own father, and her mother was killed the minute she was found to be the spinster who birthed the draconic filly. If her muddied heritage was not enough, the dragon-like genes seemed to appear from nowhere. Both parents were of similar draft lineage, so the thoroughbred was a rarely revealed trait from somewhere way back in one of the family trees, and while the horn and wings came from her father, the blue mist, cloven hooves and unnatural number of ears were characteristics unknown to either bloodline.

Consequently, she was exiled. As a mere filly, she was cast out of her kingdom to make her way in the world though it was presumed she would die quite promptly. Somehow, she made it. Though severe amnesia inhibited her from recounting anything of her life from a few weeks after her exile to stumbling across her first habitable land, Pantheon. It would be reasonable to assume she experienced another tragedy, just one more to add to the long list, perhaps some strain of head trauma, and only made it as far as Pantheon thanks to the assistance of multiple kind strangers who took pity on the struggling filly. She was, after all, young and innocent.

It was Pantheon that gifted her the magic of healing and began her undoing. She learned quickly the ways of equine life, being taught that saltwater was not suitable for drinking, that her wings could fly her high like she watched the birds doing. She learned of love, devoting her life to the existence of a kind man, D’or, who loved her likewise with all of his heart. But soon the power of healing encompassed her, swamping her in power she had never known before. She grew hungrier and hungrier for more and more until it scared her beloved away and she has not seen him since. Over the passage of months, he tried desperately to make her see the horror of what she had become, the deranged egotistical monster who was never satisfied with what she had. Cynnique did not realise what she had until she had lost him, and thus was sent into a downward spiral of self-loathing and desolation. She hid herself away in a cave, watching over the lands of Pantheon and refusing to eat or drink unless it was entirely necessary to keep her alive. Somehow her basic instinct to live reigned supreme over her wishes to suffer for what she did to her friends and her lover, though she routinely forgot how to cater for her own vital needs.

It was not until Pantheon fell victim to desertion that she fled. The dragoness had forgotten how to fly – she had never mastered the art as it was – and so she walked on fatigued, shaky limbs ‘til they brought her to the lands of Caeleste. Her legs have not forgiven her yet, and each step brings her closer to collapse, but she has made it thus far and there is hope still to be had.
