Setting
YR TWO | EARLY SPRING
The snow has melted in most places of Caeleste, besides those that are prone to snow throughout all seasons. Birds are chirping, the nice weather bringing them back home from winter migrations. You will also notice many other animals reappearing throughout. Weather temperatures have risen but often a cool crisp air will still bite at coats during the evening and night hours. Enjoy the lovely weather of spring for summer may not be as kind.

    Rather new to this large crazy family, Boaz is often seen in the cBox or in Caeleste's discord channel. A rather friendly, outgoing personality, Boaz is not afraid to make new friends and get involved in any plots!
  • Thread of the Month
    let’s play a game
    A touching, heartbreaking, thread. Leonidas and Roxana come to find their beautiful child viciously murdered. This thread can be considered the start of a war as Leonidas will not rest until he finds whomever did this.
  • Couple of the Month
    Vithmiris & Slythe
    Caeleste's resident vampire couple, Emperor Vithmiris and Slythe have offered a rather interesting dynamic to their pairing. While the pair have a tendency for violence, the two also have their tender moments - as fleeting as they are.
  • Character of the Month
    Hassan
    The newly crowned Greeshma Emperor has certainly made a name for himself among many in Caeleste in many ways and has made it no secret his ambitions for the kingdom of Greeshma. We can't wait to see what he does next!

Absinthe


A fresh snowfall covered the mountainous land in white. It glistened and gleamed along the peaks and valleys that Absinthe found herself in. This land so vastly resembled her old home that the mare had to shake herself to believe that it was truly not a dream. It's all a lie. Absinthe snarled at the voices. This was no time for their meddling. She had important plans for today. Ever since the posting she found in these lands thoughts had been brewing in the wicked mind of hers. Since her fall from grace, the mare had become ever thirsty. But this was different than her lust for blood. No, she longed for something more permanent. More meaningful. She wanted the power that she once held in her grasp to come to fruition again. From monster to the consort of a king she rose. Picking and choosing her battles so that the throne was just within her grasp. But the pathetic creature she chose to share a bed with disappeared. A ghost in the night. Her empty bed foretold a disastrous end for the mare and so she ran. Far from the land that was becoming far too silent for her liking.

It was then that she found Caeleste. Not unlike her previous home though with one dire consequence. The powers that once flowed through her veins were gone. Evaporated into thin air. The ice in her veins melted. No longer could she control her beloved frozen element. In short, she was nothing. No creature here knew her name. When her subjects used to scream her name in fear the mare felt nothing short of ecstasy. But here? She was nothing more than a stranger in the night. No one feared her. No one knew what she was capable of. But that all would change. She would make it change. That is why she found herself in this land of ice and snow. To begin to rise to power she so craved. The posting that she found in these very lands spoke of needs that the King had. Needs that Absinthe would be more than willing to fulfill. One certain title reached out to the mare. Spymaster. The mare had spent years perfecting her art. Learning the tricks of the trade. How to trick someone into telling you what you need to know without them having the slightest clue she was tricking them. How to be silent and listen when need be. She was unparalleled in her home. Known as a snake. Ready to wait and strike. She wanted to use her skills again. So she did not fall into disrepair. She had to make herself into something again. Or she would shrivel into nothing.

Hooves soon fell onto smooth stone rather than natural rock and the mare turned her attention back to the real world. She had found herself in the citadel of the man she wished to meet. Surely he would be here. His kingly duties demanded it. With such a new and growing land a King did not have time to be out and about in the world. He would rule from his throne. And if allowed Absinthe could be his eyes and ears to the outside world. You're getting ahead of yourself. The mare shook her head. Perhaps. But Absinthe was never one to think low of herself. She deserved it. And with enough determination, she would be given it. The mare stopped her trek here. She did not want to step too far into this place and overcome her welcome. With ears pricked forward, she waited. Rejoicing in the cold that this place granted. It was perfect. I have come for the King of this realm. I found your posting looking for loyal subjects and I have come to offer myself. Crystalline eyes watched the castle. Waiting for its King to come to her.

Vithmiris & Slythe
I only want to cut you open & run my tongue along your heart.
Repairs were coming along well, with most of the visible outside damage to the castle fixed, although work continued on fixing up the residential quarters so more of the large houses were fit for living in. Inside of the castle itself, however, the repairs and renovations continued and would do so far longer than anywhere else in the Citadel. With almost an entire wing colapsed though, that was hardly a surprising factor.

He had grown tired of the hammering and grinding of stone, and so had ventured outside whilst Slythe slept, exploring more of the mountain around their new dominion. It was as he is returning to his home that a newcomer (to him, at any rate) seems to have ventured into the Citadel grounds. A feral smirk tickles the corners of his lips into a slight snarl, and he hears her words hit the air.

"Why does no one ever just knock on the door? Y'know that you can't actually hear shit from out here, from inside the castle, right?" He muses as he walks up from behind her, only glancing over his shoulder to get a look at the woman's face as he passes her, "Well, come on then. I'm not going to stand out here and talk in the open." His tone is flat and bored as he walks towards the castle doors which are thrown open for him by the servants at precicely the right moment.

He wonders what she is here for, given her choice in words, but he supposes he will shortly find out. "This way." He states, turning through a few doors as they pass through the grand foyer on the way to his temporary study - and room of royal business. The door opens and he walks in, then turns to face the woman, and waits. "Speak."

Absinthe


She waited there in the cold for some kind of answer. Within the castle, the mare could hear the sounds of workers bustling about. Renovations? Perhaps this new King was making what seemed to be much-needed changes to the stone castle. As her attention was caught on the castle and the work going on within she did not notice the stallion coming behind her. He's here. Just as the voices announced him the stallion spoke out into the air. He wondered why no one ever knocked on his door instead of just falling into the air. Absinthe raised her brow slightly. If he wasn't in the castle how was he to hear her knocking? She gave the smallest of a snicker but kept most of it inside and nodded her head apologetically. "Of course. I'll remember that." The stallion barely gave her a second glance as he walked past her. Perhaps her vanity was wounded but now was not the time for that. She wasn't here for the stallion. She was here for the position he had to offer her. She followed him silently. The door opened just in time for the couple to saunter into the castle. He led into what seemed to be a private room. Absinthe was glad for this. She didn't want her words to be heard by all his workers and servants. She was better than that.

The King ordered her to speak then and Absinthe was not one for small talk and so she started in on her true reason for being here. "My King I saw your postings calling for those who call your land home to come together. In my previous home, I was an integral part of the Kingdom and I hope to become so once again here. The job title of spymaster really spoke to me and I believe that you will find my skills will fit perfectly within it. I know that you know nothing of me and will not fill this job lightly so I hope that in some way I can prove that I am worthy." With her final words the mare gave a gentle bow of her head. Allowing the man dipped in tar to speak now. She hoped that he would not think her foolish. Coming into his home and asking for a job when he knew her not. But Absinthe was willing to prove herself. She knew that she could fulfill this job with fervor and she hoped that he would be willing to see this.

Vithmiris & Slythe
I only want to cut you open & run my tongue along your heart.
He listens to her talk, letting her prattle on about why she is here and what it is she wants without interrupting her, despite the fact that the position had already been filled by another who had beaten her to the punch. He waits silently, bored, until she is finished before he releases a sigh.

He looks at her before stating simply, "The Spymaster position has already been filled by Doyle, and the Commander position by Hel." He is used to this, by now though, having others come to him and ask for positions without knowing them first; but as he had told Hel during their first meeting whilst showing the stallion around the grounds, everyone was a stranger to him in these lands, except for Slythe of course.

They were both still relatively new here and had simply made a beeline across Caeleste to reach Dead Horse Ridge without interacting with many others on the way. Only a few short seconds pass between his first words, and the next, "If you have little or no issues working under the command of another in the position you saught, you are welcome to join the ranks of the Inquisitors - our spies. You will have the same jobs, more or less, without the need to worry about having others to order about."

He waits now, silent once more, to see how she would react and what she would choose to do. But there are other positions, informal positions, available to her if she wishes for something more specific, as he had noted in the notice that had been posted.

Absinthe


The woman watched the obsidian painted stallion quietly as he made himself at home in this room. Once the creature made her statement clear she waited. Wondering what was to come. A sigh escaped her lips as the stallion professed that another had beat her to the punch and encaptured the title of the spymaster. She cursed herself silently for being too slow for the title. The stallion spoke again then. Saying that there were positions available beneath the Spymaster who Absinthe now knew as Doyle. The mare gave a gentle nod of her head as she thought through the stallion's words. Could she handle being under the thumb of another? Of course in her times of climbing ladders, the mare had been subject to another's rule. She knew that was the way of the world. Start at the bottom and climb to the top. So, if Spymaster was what she wanted, and eventually a crown of her own, she would have to wait. But she would rather wait for a title to her name than none at all. So the mare would take this job and fulfill it to the best of her abilities. She would prove herself to the stallion of little words that she was worthy of his time. "I can play nice with others... I will take the job of Inquisitor and serve you well." The mare fell silent once again. Waiting to be sure that the stallion would accept her.

Vithmiris & Slythe
I only want to cut you open & run my tongue along your heart.
"Very good. You may take residence within the baracks, which is the building attached to the outside of the castle, or in the village outside that we passed on the way through." Once more his voice is simple and to the point, but he looks at her carefully, sunfire eyes watching every subtle movement. He remembers, albeit vaguely, the many battles he had fought in the past, how many times new recruits would get too cocky, bite off more than they could chew, or dare to try and stand up to him and take him down from the inside.

"You will typically file your reports with the Spymaster, but myself, Slythe, or Selene may call upon you at any time for information or provide you with a task to complete," He moves out from behind the desk, and comes to stand directly in front of Absinthe, "I have a zero tolerance for insubordination, as well as anything treasonous against the citizens of the Ridge, or the crown court. Keep this in mind."

He then walks past her, back out the door, a flick of his tail the only indication that he wishes for her to follow once again. He wanders out the way they had come, heading back outside. He tosses his head over to the right of the main door, "That's the barracks." He then proceeds onwards, through the village houses, to the wall that runs behind them. "That's the training grounds. All battles or spars are to be taken there where possible."

The stallion spoke swiftly and to the point. Absinthe liked that about him. Though she did tend to use flowery words and ramble on the girl was not one for small talk. She hated to drone on about anything and nothing. The stallion noted that she may take residence either in the barracks or in the village in which she had passed to get to the castle. Absinthe was no war monger. She did not enjoy the smell of dirt and sweat. The barracks would not be for her. But the village? Perhaps she could carve out her own little piece of heaven there. Make it her own. "If it is nothing to you I would prefer the village, sir."Groveling snake. The voices didn't like the thought of being subordinate. They didn't want to be ruled over. But she had done it before and she could do it again.

Vithmiris then spoke of her duties. She would report to the spymaster. Doyle. She had heard his name whispered on the winds but had never had the opportunity to meet him. That was surely something she should put on her to do list. If he was going to be ordering her around he should know just what she was good for. He then noted that either he, the equine that she heard was his mate-Slythe, Or someone by the name of Selene could give her a few jobs here and there. Absinthe nodded and gave a hum as an answer. She understood.

The creature then comes to stand before her. All serious tone and sharp eyes. He told her that there would be no insubordination and no fowl act against her fellow citizens. Was there any king who wanted his followers to go against him? Surely not. And yet, almost always there would a snake in the grass. Someone plotting to steal the throne. Absinthe would not be that creature. Sure she thirsted for power. She wanted it more than anything and she had no qualms about hurting others to get what she wanted. But the girl had learned long ago that going against the crown was no small undertaking and more often than not had serious consequences. "I will keep that in mind."

Absinthe followed where Vithmiris led. He pointed the way to the barracks. And then to the training grounds. Absinthe took in the sights. This land had promise. Her attention was pulled by the training grounds. It had been some time since she had been in an actual battle. She had taken down deer and other game but no equine as of late. Perhaps she should practice some. But that would come at a later date. The mare gave a gentle tilt of her head. "Perhaps one day we could spar there." A simple statement. She should know her King in combat. "Thank you for your time, Vithmiris. I thank you for letting me join your herd. I promise to serve you well."

Vithmiris & Slythe
I only want to cut you open & run my tongue along your heart.
“That’s perfectly fine, just ensure that you keep up to date on what’s going on in and around the Ridge, as that is imperative to your position. You’re welcome to decorate or whatever, however you wish, as well.” He didn’t need Inquisitors that lived outside of the barracks to become lax in their jobs and not keep up to date on current events and information.

He gives a nod as she agrees to keep his words in mind, but time would tell if that would be the case. Usurpers were such a pain the ass to deal with, but he knew he could rely on at least 3 others within his ranks, should he be unable to tend to a situation personally.

He offers her a grin at her suggestion of a future spar, and nods slightly, “That would very much be welcome, and beneficial to learn what abilities others have.” The grin continues to dance across his features dangerously, as he wonders if the woman before him had any powers to her name.

Although he noted that some of his older magic had been inaccessible to him since arriving in Caeleste, like the ability to influence another’s mind with his own, he had summed it down to a lack of use making him rusty; his regenerative abilities, too, had been limited, but at least were still there and growing stronger after each altercation.

He always did enjoy watching others’ reactions to his wounds regenerating before their very eyes; whilst he was not technically immortal, it was very easily a close second.

“In any case, however, I shall depart your company for now. If you need anything, there are servants running around that you can call upon. Though, I will request you don’t hurt any of them without reason. They’re hard to come by in this climate.” He didn’t need the servants running off due to being treated too poorly; despite his own wild temper and love of bloodshed, he didn’t abuse his staff where it wasn’t truly warranted. He dipped his head at Absinthe, and then began to return to the castle.
