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

lux apollyon

where once was light, now darkness falls

she is not tall. she is not beautiful. she is a thing made for war, a creature of utility. the gods took a knife and molded her from clay, the fine lines of a friesian sculpted into the bulk of a vanner; the resulting art is powerful, to be sure, but hardly feminine, and in no way soft. certainly, she has the feathered legs of her lineage, the hair, the big brown eyes - but the feathers are often caked with dirt; the mane is braided and the tail cropped short; and the eyes are stony, impenetrable, cold.

she is not without color, but the shades are all muted, nothing spectacular or found outside the earthly realm. a sable base dipped in paint and drizzled with pitch, she wears a mask of darkness that coils up into twin horns. the same unsteady black is found on her rump, and a smattering runs up the hock of the left fore. white, meanwhile, coats each leg and meets at her belly, the splash bright on her flank. one regularity stands out, a small cosmic joke on the valkyrie's hide: a heart, dainty, cut into the right inner thigh.

so she is molded, and so she was painted - but it is the way she has broken that truly draws the eye. like a true soldier, the seraph is littered with scars, each one a jagged story with an abrupt end. a horn once gouged her left shoulder; a set of claws dragged down her left haunch. more recently, a great gash narrowly misses her right eye, but whatever left it took much of the ear as consolation. most impressively, the right foreleg is dangerously crippled, a mangled mixture of lacerations and burn marks leaving it hopelessly disfigured and perfectly agonizing to walk upon. the wounds and burns that litter her right side are fresh, raw, and painful.

Personality

the swordless soldier

she wears her pain like armor

lux was water: kinetic, malleable, comforting, startling. she fought for her friends, for her right to a childhood, for injustice, for fun. she scoffed and studied, and was happy. lux was as likely to champion lost causes as to participate in ritual hazing, always ready to take the fall on behalf of a friend.

seraph was fire: passionate, warm, efficient, vibrant. she fought for her legion, for her rank, for the honor of her home. she battled and bled, and was devoted. seraph understood the importance of balance, expecting greatness from her troops and offering it in turn.

apollyon is stone: cold, unyielding, defensive, hard. she fights for her shame, for her guilt, for the fallen. she aches and regrets, and is tired. apollyon yearns for community, but has rejected herself from it, and her humor is sharper now, her valiance tempered by time

History

order of the seraphim

i live, i die, i live again

lux

she is born lux, daughter of ava and zenith, oldest child of an oldest child. this is auspicious: the oldest child will be conscripted to fight at a young age, and lux spends her childhood knowing that it is to be cut short, determined to make the most of her brief and brilliant youth. she will join the Legion when she comes of age, and attain honor and glory. until then, she will live.

lux the girl is a mischievous thing; lux the soldier knows how to have her fun within the rules. always bright, she is well known and well liked, her wry humor and work ethic endearing her to both fellow conscript and the higher ups. it is not long before she is selected for the prestigious Angelius Regimen; it is not longer before she is leading her own brigade.

seraph

the assignment of Angelius Regimen comes with new responsibilities. we see lux transform from friendly private to motivated officer as she juggles her meteoric rise through the ranks. soon she is given a nickname, seraph, given for her boldness, her cunning and strength in engagement after engagement. the generals admire her, the soldiers rally around her, and she makes friends - and enemies - and more - among her peers. she loves. she loses. battle after battle she leads and fights, and battle after battle she wins.

Until the day she does not.

apollyon

what happens in the battle is unclear: nobody but the seraph could truly say, and the woman who emerges, alone, from that blood-torn battlefield is not the seraph. nor is she lux. she is something different, something damaged far deeper than the wound on her leg and the blood that soaks her coat. she offers her commanders nothing but a curt resignation; she leaves her home the next day, limping and cold.

the name apollyon is spoken in whispers, reserved for those who have fallen so far as to be irredeemable, who have failed the Legion so thoroughly as to be forever cast out - and while nobody says it aloud, it echoes like a silent threat, following her as she wanders, chased and haunted by ghosts and nightmares only she can see.
