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.”

. Summary .

Avalon, while easy to look at, is not a raving beauty. The vivid blue of her left eye is lovely but the mismatched brown tone of her right is unsettling to some. Her coat does have a fascinating metallic shimmer in the right light but in the wrong light it can look almost muddy. She sports a bold white face but her mane and tail are an odd mix of cream and yellow/rose gold. The most immediately remarkable physical feature is the single gold colored hoof contrasting with the three silver ones. On closer inspection the speckling that dusts her topline and brindling marking her belly are certainly unusual, especially in comparison to her simple white half-cannon, sock and coronet leg markings. Even that is unlikely to make her stand out in a large crowed to anyone who doesn’t already know her though. Her build is more coarse than it is refined but well proportioned, compact and light weight. She is clearly intended for quick bursts, if not sustained efforts, of speed. Her movements, while frequently tentative, do manage to display a certain measured grace that often catches the eye even if her initial appearance does not. She also takes notable care to keep herself clean and presentable at all times.

Personality
Avalon is: caring, cautious, curious, dependable, gullible, loyal, quiet, shy, socially awkward, studious
Avalon is not: adventurous, arrogant, brave, charismatic, cruel, outgoing, reckless, thoughtless

Avalon likes:
staying home and tending to small matters that others might forget
pretty things, though she isn’t much of a collector she just likes to look at them
listening to stories
watching the sky

Avalon dislikes:
going places for the stack of visiting them, or for any reason really
drawing attention
speaking up in groups
not being clean

Summary: Avalon is a quiet, shy, unassuming lady who has always tended to spend much of her time watching the world around her and not as much participating in it. She is steadfast in her beliefs and opinions once she forms them but can take far too much time in deciding things. Her curiosity is strong but she is not terribly adventurous and much more likely to learn things from stories than from actual experience. So far, she is not terribly pleased with the single adventure she has embarked upon and it would really take some convincing to get her out on another one. Of course, all of her “I wont's" melt away when she is around Arcadia, he can talk her into almost anything. She is completely and dangerously devoted to him and will do whatever she is told if she believes it is in his best interest. Luckily he would never take advantage of that devotion, unfortunately, others will and have. She can be quite gullible, has a rather unfortunate blind spot for the faults of those around her and is always overeager to please. Not being terribly outgoing she has never had many friends but when others choose to make a friend of her she is very loyal and can be depended upon for an understanding ear, thoughtful if sometimes misguided advice and a supporting shoulder.

History
Prolog: This story begins, at least the part that is known and can be told, with an old mare and a goat. Together they made an unlikely but very lucky pair in many ways. The old mare’s name was Mandy and she had been a lone wanderer for all her life. The goat well, the goat was a goat and her name was Nessa. It was no magical companion bond that held the two together but a pure friendship of the long-lasting, always-forgiving, unbreakable kind.

No, Mandy was not Avalon’s mother at least not by blood. Mandy never had any children of her own. Avalon’s entry into the tale occurred under somewhat mysterious circumstances. She was abandoned at birth for no apparent reason. There was no sign of an attack or a fight, no body of a mare who didn’t make it through childbirth and certainly nothing obviously wrong with the perfectly healthy, little, lonely foal hidden in the high grasses. It was luck that brought Many and Nessa to the right place at the right time. It was luck that made the meeting happen just days after Nessa had birthed her most recent kid. Mady was just going to see the foal along to a normal mother for adoption, Nessa had other plans. Having been a mother many times over herself at this point, she was the firm opinion that Mandy was missing out. Nessa always got her way. So, Avalon was raised by a goat and a rather bumbling elderly mare.

~*~

The girl was about four months old when she first met Arcadia. It was early morning and she’d opened her eyes in the fading darkness to see what she thought was a shooting star. On a playful whim, she left Mandy, Nessa and Norin (the kid) sleeping deeply and chased off after the trail of the star. Of course, she wasn’t expecting to actually find anything so it was quite the shock when she peered around a large willow tree and came face to face with a strange, blue colt who looked to be about her own age.

Avalon: Wow! Did you fall from a star?
Arcadia: Yeah, sure kid.
Avalon: Wait… aren’t you a kid too?
Arcadia: If you say so… wanna play?


Despite his appearance, Arcadia truly wasn’t a kid at the time, and in fact never had been, but this is one of the many things about Arcadia that Avalon was destined to never completely understand. Even with all the wandering her little family did, magic just wasn’t much of a thing in the small piece of the world that she knew. This didn’t stop the pair from becoming immediate and fast friends however. She didn’t see him again for more than half a year but he was always foremost in her mind. After scolding the girl for wandering off, Nessa and Mandy decided that her story about a strange blue boy, who they could find no trace of, must be nothing more than an imaginary friend and there for quite harmless. They never did meet him...

~*~

After Avalon’s first birthday Mandy convinced Nessa that it really wasn’t good for the young lady to grow up completely isolated from others her age. So the for set off to find a herd that might take them in. Eventually a suitable herd was found but Nessa and Norin weren’t as welcome as Mandy would have liked. They lived with it for a time but after only about six months they decided to return to their wandering ways and left Avalon behind. Avalon was strange without realizing it, she really help it given her up bringing to the time. Most of the adults ignored her little oddities but the other children teased her endlessly, especially about Arcadia who none of them ever saw. At first she argued with them, tried everything she could think of to get them to believe her but in the end she came to the conclusion that grinning and baring it was probably the best way to get by. She simply looked forward to Arcadia’s visits and drifted dreamily through the times between.

Arcadia did visit every year on her birthday right up until her fifth one. She panicked when he didn’t show up and drove her herd members crazy with her pestering for information. One grumpy older stallion finally told her that if she’d lost something she ought to go look for it. So she went adventuring against her better judgment. The prospect shouldn’t really have bothered her given the early part of her life, but she’d grown accustomed to staying in a more localized area and wasn’t enthusiastic about leaving it.

~*~

Those lonely wanderings have spanned the better part of two seasons and now they have landed her at the passage into Caeleste.

0 0
It is highly unlikely that Avalon would battle unless her life or the life of her child is threatened.
Confidant
While Avalon loves all creatures, she is highly unlikely to ever have a confidant. Being as devoted to Arcadia as she is just doesn't leave much room for other such life bonds.
