Setting
Year III | Winter
The once auburn leaves and crimson colors are now gone, swept away by the strong winds leaving bare trees in its wake. The clouds also seemed to have swept in fast, plummeting the ground with snowflakes. All of Caeleste is quickly blanketed in snow and not just a thin layer of it either. The snow already reaches up to the knees of the more taller equines in most areas. Even the temperatures feel a lot colder than what they normally would be for winter. Snow storms tend to be hitting every other week or so, making all the habitants dreading what it will be like further into the winter. The rumours of a harsh winter are proving to be correct. Even the ice coating lakes are difficult to break through. Word is beginning to spread that this will be one long tough cold winter.

    "I am the sword and shield of this realm and I will do everything in my power to ensure the safety of all of you."

    Found in the thread for the realm, Antiope greets the horses of Vasanta as their new herd leader. When met with negativity, Antiope rises to the occasion and pledges her life to ensuring their safety.

Appearance
Nylah is the firstborn son of Minas Zhaoianas the Microraptae, and the mare known as Kin the Golden. He has inherited his sires feathering to an extent, but he carries his mother’s build, light and lithe like she. Where horns would be though, he has a crest of feathers that are all tipped in gold, although the edges were just painted to give them lustre. His head, Arabian in carriage and slightly dished, has white markings that are like those his sire has – only white, and down his face. His head is a golden colour, yet his throat is teal and the feathering begins here, growing teal and blue along his cheekbones, covering his throat. His coat would be like a paint horse, yet the colours meld from gold to tan into patches, where the rest is teal and feathery, glittering in the light. His teal fades into blues and deep blues down his hind limbs, and down his forelimbs. He has a long tail like his sire, with the great plumage of feathers that fade into a lighter blue and are tipped with gold. He has feathers on his hind legs like his sire, these also tipped in gold. He has feathering down his back, down his shoulders, and down part of his tail. He has inherited his mother’s golden markings, as well as the glittering appearance of her coat. His eyes are a bright yellow, intelligent and keen. He will be only fifteen hands tall at the withers, though his crest and his long tail give him the appearance of being larger than he is.

Nylah's human face claim + voice is Chris Pratt.
Personality
Where his mother is a vain creature and has no true caring in her soul, and his sire is vain in his own way, Nylah will grow to become less vain then them – but he will care about his appearance. He will always preen, ensuring his feathers are immaculate – he will learn from his sire how important it is for them to look so, but Nylah will, due to be raised in a place where many range, learn other attributes. He will develop a deep desire, in time, to find his place in the world. He will have a slow temper, very little and calm in comparison to the likes of his mother but he will be fiercely loyal like his sire is to Kin. His loyalty will extend to any of those who he has befriended, those who become closer, as he seeks to find his place. He will be kind, he will be gentle, and he will have little desire to want to fight or make anything beyond what he knows as his own. He is still learning, still developing, and more will be added to who he is in time, forged by unwrapping his future. He has learned to be exceptionally loyal, kind, with virtually no temper but he has learned how to fight form a very young ages and will defend and fight for what he believes in.

He still abhors violence, but after some terrible life lessons, he has learned that he must not be as rash, and he has become skeptical of others he doesn't know, a little less kind up front - only those he knows well does his mask come off. Nylah is determined to learn to fight, and be stronger, so he can defend himself and those he will protect, but he has finally seen part of the world he had never before... but it is for the better that he has learned.
History
Nylah was born on Oblivion to Minas Zhaoianas the Microraptor, and to Kin the Golden. Neither were natives of the land but they made their home in the mountains, hidden away from others – Minas was a creature of the mountains where Kin was happy to live in her own place, especially after her encounter with a would be emperor, when she laughed in his face and left with her bonded partner. It was on their journey to this mountainside dominion that Nylah had been born. He was a perfect mix of his sire and dam to their eyes and as he grew he became all the more striking, as his feathered crown grew in and his tail and other feathering grew in.

When he was little he had remembered his mother and sire being married in the great keep of the Luzeic – and the empress Clover who had always been lovely to him. When he was barely over and yearling and growing quickly, she had been stolen and Nylah had become a part of the band who brought her home. He learned fighting quickly that time, because it was learn fast or die trying. He stayed here on Oblivion for a time but eventually he took Clover’s advice he had learned from the masquerade and he left Oblivion, to journey and learn the world.

He had found Liridon, where he had become a part of their world for a time and befriended Valda, with whom he may have had a slight crush on, but Nylah had the wanderer in his blood now and he had to move like one. So he bowed to his desire, told Valda he hoped to see her again soon – he’d be back shortly or perhaps something else – and he left, and has come here.

Here, he became Emperor of Vasanta alongside Cerridwen, and together they tried to keep their land for all to be safe in, but when disaster loomed and the Late Winter took hold of Caeleste, Nylah thought he would help - but he did wrong. He spoke rashly, and brought the heat onto himself and realised how wrong he had been and he went home, unable to bring himself to be a part of the remainder... and then Cerridwen fell from her place, and Nylah felt it was time for a change - as he too, felt himself changing, and in doing so, he has given himself to Hemanta.

When he was still in Vasanta, he met Willow - and with her, he found himself becoming closer and closer to. She became the Empress of Hemanta, and now Nylah and Willow are a mated pair. They look after Hemanta together, and Nylah has made friends in Thanantos, Legion, and countless others of his homeland. After a long while, he and Willow welcomed to life two children of theirs - Ciaran and Marilla Zhaoiani.

Shortly after their birth, Nylah gained his final stone to become a master of the water of Hemanta, with the diamond stone. He is now seeking his gold stone in his second sorcery and expecting a third child with his Empress, who will be named Teagan Zhaoiani.
Moisture Control (Primary Sorcery)
Sapphire Stone
This the base level with the new power, Nylah would have been able to control little amounts of water. He can lower the temperature to just above freeze, raise it so it might scald but do not damage, just be irritating. He could make weak shields of water, weak weapons of water, and he could form rain into ice crystals and create hail if need be. He could also bring up a little of water to protect parts of him being attacked to create a minor hardened layer of skin. He can also purify dirty water, and is beginning to be able to manipulate any kinds of water he wishes.

Emerald Stone
At this second level, Nylah is now able to wield water in a manner more appealing to him. He can create rainclouds in humid weather (cumulonimbus) but he cannot create anything bigger. Nylah can summon rain from clouds that drift overhead, and he can create decent sized hail by lowering the water’s temperatures. He can melt ice; he can heat water to burning temperatures now. He can use water as a better shield for himself, able to deflect decent blows, nothing too heavy, and his attacks by manipulating water can now leave minor damage like bruising, maybe small cuts but nothing substantial. Nylah can pull the water out of most living plants and from anything around him that has water.

Ruby Stone
Nylah is now able to create shields to block significant attacks, though they cannot stop the blow hitting him entirely, only greatly lessen their impacts. He can control water longer, and he can now also force any cloud to become bigger, creating big rainstorms and now even thunderstorms. He cannot control the lightning, but he can control the amount of rain, snow and fog that they generate and even how powerful the storm can become, such as being capable of producing a tornado – though he cannot control the tornado itself, only the manner in which it appears. He can also create large hail, and he can steer snowstorms and control how snow lands – important for him, living in Hemanta, to be able to heat the snow and ice that forms on his body to warm him easily. His water attacks are greatly stronger, able to leave worse damage and potential severely injure others if he needed them to by use of his water manipulation, and he can shape water into whatever he needs it to be now. He still needs a water source, be it plants or water bodies, but he cannot and would not touch the water in other living beings. He can move very large amounts of water, but it drains him very quickly – and this power leaves Nylah more susceptible to those with electrical abilities.

Diamond Stone
With gaining diamond, Nylah will be able to deflect and shield himself from major attacks, though against someone with a stronger power it takes a significant toll on his energy levels. He is able to move large amounts of water, shaping it, freezing or heating it to scalding temperatures (not boiling) and he can use it easily defensively and offensively, in any way – bolts, explosions, projectiles, etc and can cause major damage to others as well as objects and the like. He can control any weather he forms or any weather he is provided it contains a large enough amount of water – he can increase rain or decrease it, and he can force clouds to build up higher. He can draw water from any source, and he is also, as much as he wouldn’t, able to alter the water concentration in other living beings but he cannot control them. He can also pull water from further away, but he always needs a source to be able to use it.
He no longer feels tired after wielding small to medium amounts of water, while larger bodies are tiring. He can purify most water, and also remove the water from sea water to make it good for drinking. Nylah can also travel across bodies of water, walking or using it to travel by forming a vortex to carry him – he cannot sustain this for very long. He is also able to heal minor wounds, better with sea water.
Most importantly now, while he is stronger and capable, he is always less tired depending on the circumstances. He is more susceptible though, than before, to electricity, and he does struggle when competing against fire – and he cannot simply create water. It has to be from a source. He is now a true master over water though, and he does not tire easily, if at all in some situations.

SECOND SORCERY - SNOW CONTROL
Bronze Stone
Where Nylah learned to use water for his offense, now he is learning snow. Being able to freeze water was good, but now with snow, combining the two he can create ice, shape little bits of snow and water and create little sculptures. He can detect incoming snow storms, and in combination wiht his diamond sorcery he is able to stop most terrible storms from striking his home, but blizzards are hard to stop. He uses his snow control more for defense then offense, but he is learning how to shape snow and water together to create offensive weapons, should he ever need them - but he can use snow to shield himself, use it to white out and area and hide, and he can only protect himself with it, and he cannot harm another with any snow yet. He can feel avalanches, use snow to attack mildly and defend himself. He cannot create snow from rain though, nor can he control how the weather works. He is just beginning, learning the basics of snow.

Silver Stone
Able to fling snow and little ice crystals, now Nylah can create large daggers of ice, creating larger sculptures and he can begin to influence snow storms and halt their progress, or worsen them if need be. He can stop blizzards but only in a small area, nothing larger than the village of Hemanta. He can combine snow to water and create solid shields and weapons, larger than before. He can now drop the temperature and humidity of the air and cause rain to become snow when he needs to, and he is learning ever day how to combine snow to water to protect his home.

Confidant
After Nylah received his sorcery, he found himself surrounded by a wolf pack – but a female found she was able to speak with him and to his surprise, he could understand her. Their connection began when she commanded the pack to leave – she was not the alpha, but even they knew not to mess with the higher magics of the world. So to his side came a white wolf, an Arctic Wolf. She stands roughly ninety centimetres at her shoulder, a very large specimen, but she is not as thick as a Grey Wolf may be, and she walks with a light pace, and is very quick and agile. Her name is Kalina, called so for her colour and appearing to look like the frost that graces the early mornings during winters.

Her white is bright white and never appears to get marked or dirty, while her eyes are a bright gold, deeper than Nylah’s but striking. She can range further from him, and she can speak to Nylah in both speech and thought, due to his magic allowing him to understand further.
