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.

Overview
Gender Stallion
Age 7 year old
Height 19.0 hh
Breed Clydesdale x Oldenburg
Sexuality Demisexual
Player Sol
Items
Appearance
Maras stands at 19hh, towering above most other equines. He owes his stature and his long, thick locks to his sire, who was a gargantuan Clydesdale. His coat is mostly obsidian, except for small blue fissure lines that run down his legs and face. These blemishes emit blue light and energy, and they glow at all times. They truly are cracks, and disruption of the alchemy that holds them together could be detrimental. His coat has several stones stuck in it, a byproduct of his creation. One scar runs down his face from an altercation that occurred in his previous life. His eyes are without pupils, and they shine a light gray color. His vision is not affected by his scar or unusual optics.
Personality
KIND - LOYAL - SILENT - INSECURE
Maras is a man of few words. When he was reborn, he was placed into a body with fibrotic vocal cords, and the fibrosis disables them from vibrating normally. Because of this, he has trouble speaking more than a few words. He understands what is being said to him very well, but he has trouble getting his point across most times. It's something that frustrates him greatly, but he's learned to deal with it. Since his vocals are less functional than most, his sense of body language is greatly heightened. He's acutely aware of how others feel based on the posture they project, and he manipulates his own position to make up for the words he cannot say. He believes that the body he was placed into is deeply flawed, disfigured by the transmutation that occurred. He believes that the cracks in his legs are too strange for him to blend in and interact normally, and he wishes that he could remove the stones from his hide. These insecurities keep him second-guessing his relationships, never thinking that he's good enough for anything at all. However, if one can look past the insecurities and uncover the true Maras, they would find a kind, gentle soul. He is naturally loyal, tending to befriend equines for life. He means well and will try to do what he believes is right.
History
There once lived a scientist alone on a hill. He decided one day to create a creature that would be his friend and do work for him. A horse was a good choice for this necessity, so he decided that he would reanimate one as an experiment. He found an equine that had recently passed and decided to reanimate the corpse - to restore life to that which had recently crossed over. He brought the remains to his house, placing it atop rocks and sacred ash. Thinking his preparations complete, he then performed the transmutation. The new brute was born once more of the ashes - an old soul brought into a new body. However, the body was not complete. The raw materials used were insufficient. ------------------------- When Maras opened his eyes for the first time, they were not the eyes he knew. His height was not the same as it had been. And there was this... tingling in his legs that felt absolutely terrible. And were there... were there rocks in his back?! He began to panic, as existing in a body that was not his shocked him. It was an unfamiliar housing, and he didn't like it one bit. Last he remembered, an illness had taken him from this world too early. But now, he woke in a house he did not recognize in front of a man he had never met. Another flash of light lit the room, another transmutation, this one sealing his form so that the energy from his legs could not escape into the world. For Maras had been brought into a body that was incomplete. It had stolen stones from the earth to make up for the deficit, but even that was not enough. It was tearing at the seams, sending bright blue light from his legs and face. The scientist kept him from blowing apart at the seams with his alchemy, but he paid with his life. The reanimated corpse was left in this house with a fresh corpse. Unable to cope with what had happened, he fled the home and went into hiding. One of the first things he noticed about his body, other than the obvious deformities, was his inability to speak. He could barely squeak a single sound out of his troubled vocals, and even those sounds were barely whispers. This frustrated him greatly, as he had been a talkative young stallion before the transformation. With nowhere else to go, he wandered for a time before stumbling into a dark forest one day. He now finds himself in Caeleste.
