the Rift



Shadow has passed away.

Species: Hybrid Gender: Filly Age: 8 Height: 14.2

Skuggi the Sleuth
♦ Pegasus
♦ Icelandic horse
♦ Black
♦ Purple eyes
♦ Crow's wings

A quick clatter of hooves over barren rock and the gentle whisper of wind on silken wings announces the arrival of this quiet mare. Named after the shadows she resemble, her dark coat and supple gait aids her in blending into the surroundings, so that you almost won't realize she is there until she speaks. Her scent is that of something wild, a notion reflected within the amethyst orbs summoning visions of deep forests, roaring waterfalls and the endlessness of the northern tundras. She is not one to be tied down, and not one to be underestimated. Despite her slight stature and ragged appearance the thick coat hides the strong muscles behind a perception of softness, an illusion of feebleness enhanced by the lazy smile. It is only during the summer months when the woolen cloak sheds and the scars become visible; thin and scattered across her sturdy frame they bear witness to the battles she have won and the victories she have gained.

The inside

"... blunt as a rusted ax cutting into wood..."

He didn't know how fitting the words were, the stallion who uttered those words. There isn't much place for finery and the intricate delicacy of tact within the inky raven. Despite loving parents who did their best to teach her respect, concepts like humility and grace just didn't seem to stick with their wild daughter.

Rather, its because Shadow doesn't see the need for it. Oh, she can be gentle as a summer breeze if she wants to, she can smile sweetly and feign innocence, ignorance, fool just about anyone with a vibrant display of unbridled confidence; but in truth she simply doesn't care for it. Her true, honest side that she fling in the face of those she deem worthy of her trust is harsh, proud, hard-headed and brittle, like a piece of obsidian so thin that light shines through. Drop it on the ground and it will shatter - such is the nature of the shadow, the wild blackbird. Her loyalties are solid once she acknowledge them, she walks only one road at a time; there is no room for falsities and deceit in her closed off heart, because it is still much too raw and tender, not yet hardened by time and the scars the years bring.

The Past

Shadow was born as the only foal of her parents, who lived a nomadic life and roamed from place to place in search for food and water. They lead a hard life, but as they were very close they managed to find happiness from each others company and the small things in life.

When she was 4 years old, a tragedy struck the family. In an attempt to save her daughter against a group of predators, Dawn lost her life and left Dusk and Shadow heartbroken and lost, unsure of what to do with their lives. They kept going, but the roving lifestyle that used to bring them happiness now seemed dreary, harsh and forbidding. When they then came across another group of travelers, Dusk decided to go with them. Shadow however had had enough. Tired of always roaming, never belonging anywhere, she bid her father goodbye and headed off on a different path; hoping and longing for a place she could call home.
