YR TWO | Early Summer
The cool air of spring has come and gone what remains is the warmth of early summer. Many may notice it his hotter than it has been in previous years especially for the early months of summer. Animals are crowding where water is still to be found, but small ponds are beginning to trickle down to half their sizes. Trees are beginning to wilt and fade their colors no longer the once vibrant greens. Even many of the flora are fading and rather quickly. What will this mean for the whole of Caeleste?

  • Member of the Month
    Our fearless leader Carhartt is well deserving of this month’s member of the month. Despite going through hell lately she has found the time to re-write important sections of the guidebook and continue the day-to-day running of Caeleste. Always welcoming in the Cbox and up for anyting, her dedication to the site knows no bounds and we are incredibly thankful to have her.
  • Thread of the Month
    Battle | Drag me down
    The fight between Vithmiris and Destroyah for the throne of Shishira was an intense one. Both fearsome fighters, their battle made for an involving read, the whole thread written was very well. Vithmiris' dialogue with his confidant, Baskerville is certainly amusing and the two horses juxtapose each other quite nicely with Vithmiris' sharp tongue and Destroyah's calm determination.
  • Couple of the Month
    Thanantos & Nyx
    The whirlwind romance between Thanantos and Nyx appears to have come to a climactic end with the two splitting up after Thanantos told Nyx of his son with Vivian and Nyx decided to leave with her brother Erebus. We will all certainly be interested to see what happens next as they meet in the Lucent Sanctuary, surely this is not the end of their beautiful love?
  • Character of the Month
    The fearsome Emperor of Shishira, his snarky and outspoken nature make Vithmiris a fun and interesting character. Despite being the King of evil we all cannot help but like him for his sarcastic comments and general badassness. He is certainly at the forefront of our minds with his recent victory against Destroyah and we all can't wait to see what unfolds for Vithmiris and his kingdom in the future.
  • Quote of the Month
    "I’ll just toy with you over and over, no matter how many times you try. You will never get the fight you’re hoping for from me. Now, if you will excuse me, I do believe that I left the fireplace going."

Caeleste Time: 03-24-2018, 02:14 PM

Gender Stallion
Age 16 year old
Height 17.2 hh
Breed Friesian
Sexuality Heterosexual
Player Neamrel

a burly beast. coat and hair a deep black, his eyes a deep chocolate. mane thick and matted in more places than he can count, but tail docked and kept short to keep from entangling it. tall compared to those with common friesian blood, standing at 17.2hh. shape full and sound, there is an elegance to how he holds himself with a body such as his.

scars are present on the front part of his body. signs showing how many past battles he has taken part in, and signs showing how well he is at only allowing opponents to hit the front of him due to the fact that there are no scars what so ever on the back half of him. out of all the scars, the most prominent are the two below his left eye. parallel to one another on their ends, and clean in the cuts of their shapes.

in this boys matted and curling mane lay trinkets tangled in the locks. different miscellaneous items picked up by two crows that use to keep this man company. some of the objects are items such as a red string, beads from a bracelet, a washer for a screw. though the one that cal holds most dear is the screw nut that lays tied into his forelock, always swaying and knocking against his forehead as he trudges along.
with an appearance that can dissuade most from coming too close -a known fact that this man uses to his advantage- he has a tendency to physically keep himself away from others around him. a habit forever ingrained in him. not one to voice his opinions, he keeps most thoughts to himself, and as they say, actions speak louder than words, and that is something calyndar is a firm believer in. once a bright fire of dominance and control, but now withdrawn and tired. calyndar has no taste for fighting anymore, he knows when to use words to his advantage, and would prefer that now than to going a few rounds. though that does not mean he will not post himself and fight back. experienced in combat and strategizing, he is a veteran and old habits die hard in terms of defending himself physically.

once savage beyond any saving (although saved he was), calyndar still holds that deep burning fire. though no raging wildfire anymore, it simply rests, waiting and sleeping, but snapping to attention when needed. an independent soul, calyndar has problems co-existing with others in groups. not because of the aspects of his personality, but because he simply does not know how. bonds such as that confuse him, though he does not voice such thoughts, he finds it best to keep himself distanced from that just like he would a physical body.

not swayed by the opinions of others, calyndar is unyielding when it comes to his beliefs. neither does calyndar like attempts at having the wool pulled over his eyes, he hates those that try to manipulate. it is through manipulation that calyndar now has to live with PTSD. it is because of his PTSD that calyndar watches where he walks, avoiding stepping on sticks, twigs, and other objects, and can no longer stand the color white.
alright boys and girls. this is a trip, so please buckle up.

born to a sire and dam that he remembers nothing of, he spent a part of his foal years with his grandmother, Anita, following her closely and following by her example. although his grandmother was far beyond her years by the time she took calyndar in, and it was not long before she passed away in a hidden away cave in the middle of the night. leaving her grandson on his own against her will.

this was the time that a couple by the names of David and Anna found a small black colt tucked away between the legs of a dead mare. their own child by their sides, they nudged the black colt along to follow them, gently coaxing him along by asking him simple questions. this is where calyndar found his second family, a beginning as much as an end, for the little white filly that was Anna and Davids true blood would come to mean much more than calyndar realized.

Tawala was her name. coat a soft white (an important color in more ways than one) and hair a lovely cream. the white filly and black colt were inseparable. always close to one another, and neither ever filled with hate for the other. calyndar would not realize until it would be time for him to leave to go on his own, but Tawala was the one his heart wanted, even if it was against his own will. she was his sister, not by blood but in bond, and the young mans brain fought with everything it had against that traitorous heart of his. but the heart wants what the heart wants, and when it has the opportunity, mistakes will follow.

it was a year after he left his second family before her saw her again. like a fine wine, she had only gotten better with age. seeming even more unreachable now in he grace and beauty. calyndar, how he wished that he realized earlier on what a fool he was. if calyndar had been able to slide a dagger into the fucking heart, knowing what he does now, he would have forced it through his ribs and home. he had wanted a life with her, trying to convince her. they were not of the same blood after all. she was disgusted, appalled by the simple notion, their parents hadn't raised them like that, she had growled. but they were not calyndar's parents, he did not even have any to remember by, only a grandmother that he watched die. they had argued for hours, at times almost becoming physical until it actually did. Tawala had wanted him gone, feeling threatened by calyndar until she had gotten too close for her liking, she had hit him. one clean cut under his left eye. anger had flared up in calyndar at the treatment. hardly a little tap from him and he had her on the ground, hoof aimed to hurt, until it didn't.

the end that his second family brought. a metaphorical death instead of a physical one. he was dead to Tawala, and if he had been any more of a monster, Tawala would have been dead by him.

calyndar knew nothing of monsters though. knew nothing of how he would soon become like one - feared and unwanted. Satanael though, that man knew. that man knew he could say just the right things, and it would work for him in the end. for when given a young man like calyndar, heartbroken, angered, lost, and confused, Satanael knew there was no better thing to do than play and have fun. you don't need her, he would say, words honey, sweet in their taste and sticky in how they stuck to calyndar's mind. you don't need any of them, he would continue, why would he ever need any who held him from reaching his full potential.

calyndar found his third family, in the dark woods, listening to the sugary sweet words of a black stallion with glowing yellow eyes, while red eyes of the pack of hell hounds followed him as he reached the full potential that Satanael said he had. another beginning, though with maybe a better end.

then she appeared one day. calyndar spying her through the thick trunks of the trees in the woods as his hooves connected with the skull of a fallen horse. her blue eyes piercing and her white coat unblemished. his coat filled with scars and covered in blood. not being in the area that calyndar was told to watch and defend though, she was save from the savagery that he would have unleashed had she been. he had disappeared back into the shadows of the woods, the white mare disappearing from his mind just as quickly. she appeared again later on though, closer this time, asking him to come out. compared to her, he was nothing nice to look at. ragged and dirtied, mane and coat filled with burs, his hair unmanaged and horribly unkept. she though, she was perfect, and she stood there in the face of him, a man who she had seen murder another in cold blood, and though calyndar does not know if she was ever scared, she did not show it then, standing before him and looking at him like she would any other. Karishia was her name. an anchor in the roaring sea. his saving grace, his lifeline.

she persuaded him from those horrible woods that Satanael had said were his home. told him how Satanael was nothing more than a manipulative murderer, and that calyndar did not have to be that anymore. he could leave. his heart wanted once more, and he was defenseless when it came to her. Satanael did not give up those he called his so easily though. calyndar's escape was not withough consequence, and so Karishia and he both left with mental scars, a second scar now gleaming under calyndar's left eye like the one Tawala had left before. Karishia leaving the safety of her herd, and calyndar leaving the safety of all he knew.

the beginning of their departure had been good, wonderful at times even, and despite the manipulative nature that Satanael had used, calyndar soon began to miss the woods he called home for so long. this was also when the doubt began to creep in, because what would he be able to do for Karishia if he couldn't even handle himself.

they became separated, calyndar's mind having drifted him away, and words being rare between the two equines now, it was hours later before he even realized that Karishia no longer walked in front of him, his head jerking around in worry as he called out for her in the quiet.

when one is one their own for extended periods of time, their minds begin to betray them. playing against them and digging into dark corners. calyndar was able to handle it in the beginning, but then the flashbacks began to get worse. leaving him immobile and in fear, chest heaving as if he had just run a marathon. it was beyond terrifying, and calyndar began to find ways to evade these flashing images that seemed to be triggered by a loud crack or the color white. then he met the crows. two black, sleek birds that he did not know the names of, and who did not know his name in return. intelligence was gleaming inside their beady eyes, and calyndar was slow to let them close to him, but it was useless to fight against forming a bond with the pair. they helped with keeping the flashbacks away, pecking him when symptoms of an episode began to show. he was grateful, even if he never voiced his thanks, and it seemed the crows enjoyed having another pair of eyes to talk to. as time passed, calyndar slowly grew better, though his disease never fully left, the crows always staying with him, but leaving for long periods of time, but always coming back, discarded trinkets clutched between their beaks that they took the liberty to tie and knot into calyndar's mane. the crows squawking on about how this officially made him "theirs". calyndar had no problem being owned if it meant this. one day though, the birds never came to the spot they had said they would meet their black beast. to this day calyndar does not know what happened to them, but he holds no ill-will towards them, for how could he when they helped him and loved him in a way different from how Karishia had, but still just as strongly. he left after waiting a week, the trinkets in his mane swaying with his hair as he disappeared.
