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

Elegant - Poised - Controlled - Serene - Lithe - Frail

A pale perlino pelt covers a slender form. The regal woman is long of leg, but possesses a relatively small frame. Draped over a gently curving neck rests a lengthy mane that is a mix of cream and white. A long tail drags the earth and shares the same coloring. Along stomach, hind legs and muzzle, her coloring fades from golden to white. Down the center of her spine, her coloring darkens to a rich golden shade. Icelyns entire body exudes a soft, golden glow.

In the center of her forehead, mostly hidden by a thick swath of long bangs, is a pure white marking similar to the shape of a star that stretches horizontally from the corner of one sea foam eye to the corner of the next. This white then stretches upwards tapering out before it reaches elegant ears. It also stretches down, but fades mid muzzle. When using her gifts on others, this mark glows brightly.

All four hooves are a gleaming golden shade and always look as though they've been freshly oiled. Her entire being exudes a glittering cleanliness. One could almost be blinded by the sun reflecting off of her golden pelt.

Icelyn has an almost elvish look to her. She is slender and spritely. Though she was struck with a sickness upon entering Caeleste, her bearing is one of royalty for she was indeed a queen. Resting atop a shapely skull is a woven silver circlet that holds rare Chrysoprase stones. Around her front left foreleg lays a silver wrap that holds the same stones. Formerly immortal, upon entering the passage, the woman has the body of a mare of 11 years.
Personality

Quiet - Contemplative - Burdened - Heartbroken - Determined

Icelyn was a kind and just queen. She cared deeply for her people and still does. The woman is wise, but is not above seeking council. One might call her extremely level-headed. All opinions matter, from the most lowborn being to the gods themselves. She sees no creature as less or more. Though she is internally troubled, she exudes a quiet confidence for the sake of those around her. A queen must appear strong even when they are not.

Her heart, having been severely broken by her former consort, will take time to mend. She has not entirely cut the idea of love from her being, but she does not plan to look for it. If love should find her, she will be more wary of it in the future.

Upon entering Caeleste, Icelyn was struck with illness. At times, mostly when she sleeps, the mare becomes delirious. She shakes and sweats. She forgets herself and those around her. The protection of her champion is imperative during these times.
History

In the Arandor Empire, royal positions were passed down from mother to daughter. A race of glimmering, golden equines, they ruled over all. They were a brilliant, shining people; bluebloods to the core. Their lines were kept pure and untarnished. If a mare chose to sully herself by dallying with one that was not as pale as she, the woman was cast out. Her station and titles were stripped and she was deemed 'unclean. To prevent such unfortunate events from taking place, marriages were arranged.

Icelyn Dor-Belfelas was the lone daughter to Queen Irilian Et-Belfelas and her consort. She was raised as all royal children were. She believed that she was better than those with coloring that wasn't pale. She was raised to rule; to maintain order. Those around her knew to obey or punishment would follow. As a child she was spoiled and entitled. Servants, those that were not white or cream, hated the girl. It seemed as though she would grow to be as insufferable as her dam. But then something changed.

When Queen Irilian died unexpectedly, the kingdom was in shock. Long life stretching for centuries was passed from mother to child. Icelyn became the child-queen. At a very young age, all of Arandor was hers to rule. Seated in power, the girl was forced to learn the ins and outs of being a ruler. As she learned and grew, her outlook on things changed. Without her mother, she had no choice but to deal closely with lowborn equines. In time, she came to realize that they were no different than she. In light of this discovery, Icelyn worked to change the kingdom. Lowborn were now allowed to go where they pleased. They were treated as equals. While the Lowborn reveled in their new privileges, the High born were not so happy.

A marriage had been arranged for Icelyn before she was born. She was betrothed to one Cel Ironblight; a silver stallion from a neighboring lineage. Certain customs had been abolished, but the council went into an uproar when she proposed that the marriage be forgotten. And so, forced by the hand of the council, Icelyn allowed Cel into her home and eventually into her heart. All was not as it seemed, however.

The Ironblight family, in league with the council, planned to do away with Icelyn so that they might restore the old ways. At the age of 11 now, they had had enough of this so called equality. Cel played his part well and made Icelyn fall deeply in love with him. On the night that they were wed, Cel attempted to kill Icelyn with a poison that would be undetectable upon the moment of death. She did not consume the entire potion, however, and, with the help of her closest guard and friend, managed to escape the castle. Only after, when the pair were safely away from the castle, did Icelyn reflect and see the signs. Together, they left her kingdom behind, but she never gave up hope. It was her intent, her vow, to return and take back what was hers. She would liberate the people once more. Until she returned, she would take the last name Hiraeth which means: a home lost.

As the fallen queen and her companion traveled, they were consumed by a thick fog. Something within this fog reacted badly with the poison that still coursed within her body. Icelyn became ill. In the mist, so thick that one couldn't see an inch in front of their nose, they became separated. The pallid empress writhed on the moist ground, fever absorbing her being. Eventually unconsciousness consumed her. When she woke, the fog had thinned somewhat, but she was very, very alone. Her body felt weaker and she knew that something was wrong. What it was, she did not know. Icelyn only knew that she needed to find her guardian.
