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
a lean figure with a bit of muscle on him, Benjamin has been hold he is a handsome man on some occasions. he is not vain enough to see it himself and relies on other's opinions of him for that. but in truth he is not one to prune his mane and keep care of himself much. there is some dirt upon his coat and a few scars that litter his body, but otherwise he considers himself quite plain. upon entering Caeleste, his ability to wield his mane as a source of his fire magic has depleted to nothing. originally, the blue hairs that make up his mane and tail were living fire. he seeks to get that power back by praying at the shrine of Greeshma, though in due time. he is not the type to throw his weight around, but is a tall enough man that towers over most. he is very humble, if you couldn't tell, and seeks for people to know him beyond an intimidating presence. the main color of his coat is a soft orange, the base of it. darker streaks of orange travel down his shoulders, rear and stockings. highlighting his brows and up his snout are also that same color. like stated, his mane and tail are a brilliant blue. a brown medieval style eye patch hides the long scars upon his left side. his eye is completely removed, ruined beyond repair. the right is still there, a brilliant baby blue.
Personality
BRAVE + KIND + COMPASSIONATE + LOYAL + HUMOROUS + CHARISMATIC
WITHDRAWN EMOTIONALLY - CYNICAL - INDEPENDENT - SARCASTIC - IMPULSIVE - INSECURE


At his heart, at is core, Ben is a funny guy. He likes joking around with people, making them roar with laughter. But lately, he's a bit serious when it comes to things. I mean, he does joke around but only with people he's comfortable with. He watches what he says around new people, setting them up with politeness to break the ice. He isn't that serious but more... understanding. A quiet understanding of people's woes and worries. He knows life is tough to many people and offers to listen if they need it. He's a great listener. Well-mannered to a fault, Ben is identified easily by his thick accent. It's like a butchered form of New York accent, more mumbling than anything.

But despite being a shoulder to cry on, he keeps his own secrets close. Preferring nobody give him those 'sorry for the loss' and making it personal, making them compare his life to their own tragic past. He keeps himself to himself. It's about the future. But he can't help dwelling on things. Ben suffers from depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Often times he doesn't let people in, keeping them a respectable distance, and never allowing them to see him on the down.

He's private like that.

This guy has the most amazing ability to get himself in trouble. Whether it be from helping others out and landing himself in a pickle, or just walking in any direction he finds himself in. He has the capability to run to the aid of any woman in distress. He isn't sexist, believing that woman can do anything for themselves, but that's just how it is. It's just a thing he does. The need to save people, to protect them, stems from the invasion and loss he suffered. By constantly protecting people Ben is able to, in his eyes, make up for the failure he did with his parents.
History
Benjamin would say his upbringing had a lot to do with how he is this day. born with a stereotypical "rich guy" background, his parents were well off and had plenty of luxuries. they only seemed to associate themselves with other like-minded individuals, making the expectations placed upon their only son a bit much. there was always an unspoken word that he had to do his best. for himself and his family. this led to crippling anxieties as a child and further problems of self-doubt down the aging line. he did his best but it always seemed it was never good enough. his parents were not loving people by any stretch. he had several nannies and tutors. there was barely time for any face-to-face socialization with his parents. he did hold it against them when he was younger but had simply grown to expect this as a fact of life.

as he grew, so did his outlook. he began to notice that other well-off families tended to spare their children of any affections. this led them to be spoiled and holier-than-thou. he had his fair share of fights with the other children, leading to his family's banishment from a place in the city where he lived. they were allowed back if they begged. kicked from that rich group, his parents decided to focus more on his attitude problem. he did not want the sudden attention they brought with them, and their lessons were often cruel and harsh. the blue flames that marked their lineage were controlled albeit through rigorous training. he soon learned to limit the burn to his mane and tail. he also learned to control it so that it did not hurt anyone else if they should touch it.

one year old was too soon to lose your family. that's what he always assumed. it was a cruel joke brought on by the universe. his family never flashed about how much money they had, but the people at the bottom of the food chain always knew. one day their home was broken into, valuables stolen and lives lost. his parents were murdered in front of him, and he was only spared because they thought he was dead. puncturing the side of his face, he lay paralyzed on the ground until help came. it led to his left eye being lost to time, deep scarring on that side and a terrible case of PTSD. without his parents, he was left to inherit a lot of their belongings. old weapons, gold, gems... he wanted none of it. this is why they were gone, after all, because other people wanted what they had. instead, he left the land that birthed him in favor of traveling. to better himself and separate himself from that past. he was doomed to run from it.

his luxuries got him far, but his smarts got him farther. he had grown into a respectable stallion. kind due to his past and understanding of others' problems. he made his fair share of friendships over the years but was unable to stay in one place long due to a wanderlust. instead, Benjamin wandered realms until he came across Caeleste. with his fire stripped from him, his family's identity, he seeks to reclaim it in honor of them. though time will tell what sort of adventures he has in this new realm, or how long he'd remain here. life is an adventure after all, so why stop at just one world? there are so many out there to explore, so many people to know.
Fire Control (Primary Sorcery)
having his power back by the graces of the deity, Benjamin's powers have watered down considerably right now. where once he was able to control his fire freely, he is able to only allow it for five minutes maximum before it disappears from his life. recharging for three days between uses, he uses it wisely. able to at least light his mane on fire, for now, the blue tendrils of his hair alight in the fire. he is unable to hurt others with this fire and it is considerably hard to control. the fire itself can burn him instead of others, so he is careful with it. he will use it instead to scare predators off or unsavory people, making them believe it is able to hurt them if they tangle with him. as such, it is largely used for a show instead of actual power. he has no desire to use it on others if pressed.
