Setting
YEAR TWO | WINTER
The world is now white in many places, the highest peaks are inhospitable, even the Molten Apex is feeling the chill this season. Snow falls at times in places where there is usually none, the desert is absolutely freezing in the night but still warm in the day, as is the Devil's Perch. Hemanta is now very difficult to access for strangers who don't know the best paths. Rain is very frequent, turning to snow in most places, but the days the sun comes out are nice days, considering the temperatures. In the lowlands, the temperatures hit a maximum of about 64ºF/18ºC every day, going up to about 77ºF/25ºC in the desert regions, with overnights ranging from 23ºF/-5ºC to 50ºF/10ºC. In the highlands, the days barely reach 50ºF/10ºC on a good day, with most being a max of 39ºF/4ºC or so. Nights here range from 23ºF/-5ºC in the sheltered areas to -22ºF/-30ºC on the peaks.

    Reli has consistently been a wonderful addition to Caeleste! Her characters are fun to read, especially Fang, who is also this month’s Character of the Month! From her excellent table making skills to her willingness to plot with anyone, Reli has become an integral part of the Caeleste community, and we feel so lucky to have her around!
  • Thread of the Month
    The Stars Are Projectors
    If you haven’t already, you need to check this thread out! This is a touching thread between two beautifully written characters that displays the ups and downs of child birth. The interactions between Gabriel and Alderaan highlight their deep love for each other. The dynamic between them is always entertaining, even in their more serious moments. We look forward to seeing more from this happy little family in the future!
  • Couple of the Month
    Castiella & Thyterios
    What do you get when you cross a banished Greek god and a fallen angel? Two diabolic creatures... These two-winged beauties cross paths in Dead Horse Ridge and hit it off like no other. They both have dark intent but mask it well with sultry tones, flirtatious words and arousing mannerism. Consummating their relationship in the heated throes of passion on the first date, Thyterios whisks her away to his home where she plans to take over his life and keep him all to herself. There’s no telling what’s next for these two toxic babes.
  • Character of the Month
    Fang
    Fang is an incredible breath of fresh air! His positive outlook on life and jubilent personality makes threads with him a complete blast. Despite his harsh upbringing and rough past, he is growing into a handsome, mature and kind individual anyone would be lucky to know and blessed to have as friend. If he's not making new friends, starting new adventures and falling head over heels for a little golden paint mare, he's living life to the fullest!

    "I follow no being, no mortal made of flesh, or god hiding in their incorporeal form. Mark me with your brand, bleed it into my very marrow so that I may never cut it loose, yet no god will ever find loyal servant in me. They have nothing that can be offered me that I cannot achieve myself."

Appearance
Zaraei is a tall, statuesque mare who commands everyone's attention with her mere presence. Regal in bearing and formidable in appearance, there is little doubt to her royal (and presumed to be Godly) lineage. She is made of well defined muscles wrapped around a tall, thought athletic frame. Her base coat is a vibrant, bloody red that fades to black along her rump and legs, much like the night sky. White breaks up the dark colors on her bottom half; it starts on her chest and runs along her underbelly and sides, blending into high white stockings on her rear legs. White blankets her face, broken by a heavy black blaze down the center of her face.

Red horns sprout from her skull - the first arches back from the center of her forehead, while two others curl out from the sides of her skull. On almost all occasions, (short of being asleep or having it ripped off in battle,) Zaraei sports an elaborate headdress made of black roses, silver and black metals, and rubies. Her entire body is dusted in various gems to give a "starry night" like appearance; black diamonds, white diamonds, and rubies. White diamonds are predominate in the black areas of her body. Though they lack the gems, both her mane and tail cast of a glimmer as well.

Lastly, her mane and tail are made up of heavy, jet black curls. Her mane is streaked in white from the halfway point upon the ridge of her neck to her withers. Zaraei's front hooves are a steely color, much like her headdress, while her rear hooves are a bloody red.

Personality
Judgmental | Ruthless | Pious | Perceptive | Covetous | Ambitious | Mysterious | Guarded

As if her exotic beauty were not enough, Zaraei has a rather charming smile that tends to melt the coldest of hearts. Charm is this mare's best weapon, only slightly a head of her brawn. Her relaxed body language, command over language, and soft voice exudes a seductive effect on her company, often giving her the advantage in a conversation. Do not be deceived for her tongue is as sharp as a sword's edge and as quick as a viper striking when she is provoked. Usually this less adoring aspect of her rears its ugly head when she is surrounded by incompetent idiots or fools as she prefers to call them. Zaraei has little patience for those who cannot keep up with her quick wit. Her keen intelligence lends her to be viciously ambitious, much like her mother.

As a bit of an opportunist, she does not let any opportunity slip by; every opportunity must utilized to her advantage. She lives and rules with an iron fist, and likely will come off as cold and unyielding upon first approach. Despite such, Zaraei is a rather engaging creature - she's social, highly involved with the politics that swirl around Elysium, and keen on forging new alliances. Zaraei will know no stranger.

She is a firm believer in "survival of the fittest", and spurns those who expect her to give without receiving anything in turn. Zaraei is not given to any excesses of emotion, but she does have buttons, and unfortunate are the ones who push them. She does not rage - rather, she sinks into a kind of tranquil fury, a long-lived, icy wrath that never burns itself out. She can seemingly deliberately jettison any last shred of compassion and mercy from herself, and she has an incredible memory for past wrongs and insults. The virtue of patience becomes a deadly weapon in her - after all, vengeance is a dish best served cold.

Zaraei also believes herself to be above everyone else due to her mother's delusional grandeur that she was born as a gift from the Lords and Firstborn Vega. This makes her arrogant and self-centered to a fault. Such beliefs also make Zaraei a very pious creature, believing greatly in the Lords and the Firstborn. Her misguided beliefs instill a heavy moral compass in Zaraei, though such morality cannot stop other negative traits. She can be rather covetous and lacks emotional maturity. She has little to no control over how wildly her emotions change and struggles to understand her emotions fully.

Despite how vivacious Zaraei can be, she is a bit of an enigma. Little is often known about her, and is done so purposefully. She keeps her secrets close to her chest and rarely opens up to others.

History
The red maiden was born to a single mother. Her mother was a Queen of a great red wasteland, the sole ruler of a kingdom made of the most experienced and war hardened gladiators. Zaraei's birth was overseen by the Queen-Mother's priestess, the very witch who had converted Zaraei's mother to "The Lords" and their ways. Zaraei was not the Queen-Mother's firstborn child, but she was the sole survivor. Queen Ursa believed that Zaraei was a blessing - a gift from her Gods and that she was chosen for the special task of bringing the carrier of their word to life. In reality, Zaraei had been conceived through the magic woven by the priestess at the queen's side...However, the truth was never revealed to the Queen nor to her child, Zaraei.

Thus, Zaraei was born with much anticipation. Heralded in to a life with an unstable mother, Zaraei was raised to believed she was the child of The Lords; that she was better than everyone for having the blood of Gods coursing through her veins. That she was special and would lead their kingdom to legendary victories. From the start, Zaraei was educated by the best scholars the Queen-Mother could find. The priestess never lingered far from these teachings, keen to make sure the truth was never revealed to Zaraei or to her mother. When the red maiden was old and strong enough, she sparred with the gladiators of her kingdom. She grew to be taller and stronger than her mother, and proved herself to be a formidable opponent in the sparring rings time and time again.

However, the paradise the Queen-Mother and her priestess built was never meant to last a lifetime; eventually the Queen-Mother's mental stability wavered once more, throwing her kingdom into turmoil and strife. Unable to handle the upheaval, Queen Ursa mysteriously vanished and left her child as the sole heir of an unstable kingdom. An advisor on the Queen-Mother's council formulated a coup before Zaraei could be crowned, instead crowning herself as the Queen in Zaraei's stead. The priestess and her clerics feared for Zaraei's safety and forced the God-child to flee.

And so she ran. She spent the rest of her youth fighting and surviving, and praying to The Lords to guide her. Her prayers inevitably landed her here, though the red maiden does not quite fully understand her purpose in this new land...Yet.

Caeleste | Year 1 | Summer

Zaraei gains a new magical ability - sun control - from the god named Greeshma. Not long after, Zaraei takes over the Greeshma throne, becoming the Empress she was prophesied to be.

More to come...

- Loss: Forfeited Greeshma (IRL stuff pushed a forfeiture)

Sun Control Sorcery
Zaraei was blessed with the power of Sun Control by the deity Greeshma in the Summer of Year 2. While not the powers Zaraei was born with, the god granted the red maiden power far stronger than she original wielded. Originally well adapted to heat, Zaraei now finds herself impervious to extreme heat - of not rather comfortable in very hot climates. Radiation seems to hardly affect the mare, but its true extent is unknown at this time. Zaraei perpetually seems very, very warm to the touch to others - she now burns as hot as the sun.


Sapphire Stone

Zaraei finds herself able to wield the power of the sun beyond the ability to endure scorching temperatures. While not overbearingly powerful, the red maiden can do simple tasks such as:
-Radiate heat to aid another with warmth
-Cast a faint glow to aid plants in growing,
-Fire Immunity
-Not affected by bright light
-UV radiation immunity
-Very minor, small solar flares erupt from her being when in a high emotional state
