the Rift




Species: Hybrid Gender: Mare Age: 6 Height: 16.2

Aquila does not have a coat, but instead her skin is pebbled and stretched over bony plates (like a seahorse). Though she is not tied to water, her skin becomes dry, dull, and faded the longer she spends away from moisture. The base of her skin is a sand color. Stripes of electric aqua run through her coat, surrounded by irregular, dark mocha pigment. The brown turns black and the aqua darkens and glows in the face of extreme emotion. In place of a mane, rounded bony plates sprout from her crest and extend down the front over her face in place of a forelock. Gills form pits on her shoulders, and she may use them when she is swimming, but she also may breath normally on land. Her tail is leonine and the end is covered in a cluster of dark brown barbs. Her dark brown hooves are cloven and webbed. Her horn is slightly curved with a blade edge and is made of aquamarine. Her eyes are quite large and are also aquamarine, but have bright yellow ringing the iris, and she rarely ever blinks. Sharp fins emerge from where her head meets her neck. Aqua & dark brown ring form circles around her eyes. The colors also stripe on along each side of her nasal bone and cheeks, much like warpaint. Her teeth are also sharper than the average equine, and she often enjoys fish in addition to greens for food.

Militant and straightforward, Aquila is not one to sugar coat things. She is sharp when it comes to acts of war, but lacks empathy and understanding of emotions (both in herself and others). She often speaks her mind and observations (of which there are many), and this can provide either unintentional hilarity or inadvertent insults. She's a perfectionist and is therefore constantly looking for what is imperfect and thinking of how to fix it; from war tactics to grazing rotations on the army pastures. This makes it difficult for her to relax (so she never does), and makes her mind a constant hive of thoughts- seeing how things work and how to make them more efficient.

Akvo (the Rift)
From an aquatic culture of equids in Akvo (a region in the Rift), Aquila is- obviously- from a militant family. Her upbringing was extremely austere and created a devotion to logistics and strategy instead of emotion and family. Akvo, her native herdlands, has a culture based on military and art, much like the beauty of a tempest sea. Aquila found the balance of this contrasting foundation by committing herself to the art of militia.

Due to a her family’s legacy and her natural inclination for the art of war, she quickly rose through the ranks and became a trusted advisor to the Akvian Council. Though their culture had negotiated peace with most of his neighbors and conquered lands, the nearby culture of Yothea desired the wealth and prosperity Akvo had attained.

The Yothean priest and king- in a jealous and desperate act- made a deal with Vjanta, a great and terrible demigod of destruction. In exchange for riches and wealth of Akvo, the Yotheans would worship and sacrifice only to Vjanta. Thus, Vjanta sent a great and terrible wave of destruction to Akvo, using the very sea they loved and relied on to destroy them. Terrible surges, giant waves, and ferocious cyclones began to assault and kill mares, stallions, and foals.

The Akvian deities tried to protect their people, but they were no match for Vjanta- who was empowered by the worshipping of the entire Yothean culture. Their deities did manage to save a small portion of their city, fending off the onslaught long enough for the Council to send Aquila and her cousin, Rohkea, out to find either help or sanctuary. Though, as they escaped, Vjanta caught them and separated her from her cousin.

So she fled, becoming embroiled in a war against Vjanta waged by Helovians in the Riptide Isles. Though Vjanta was vanquished, she was still seperated from her entire culture with the closing of the Rift.

Craonos is a narwhal leviathan, smooth body mottled with striking charcoal and ivory skin. A long, aquamarine-tinged ivory tusk sprouts from his mouth, and dark charcoal eyes quietly survey the world. Bright aquamarine symbols glow along his back, that mean “the sea” in Akvian. Both stern and commanding, Craonos is more than able to defend both himself and Aquila. However, where his bonded is quick to offend and dismiss others, Craonos is more observant and a deep thinker. His dark, soulful eyes watch others closely, picking up on cues that Aquila may miss.

Aquila lays egg capsules (example) rather than give live birth. These capsules require salt water (not fresh water) upon delivery in order to sustain the foal inside and allow for emergence through the capsule.
Aquila does not trust winged creatures, due to them being her natural predators in the Rift/Akvo.
Aquila's blood is blue. Literally.
Akvians (and thus Aquila) do not cry. (They live underwater, so tears are useless).
Akvian language is actually Esperanto (with a little Atlantean thrown in).
