Description

Cyrene is a sturdy, athletic centaur, especially as females go. Though not large, she is a compact creature of lean muscle. Her black mane is kept in tapering twists, hanging like tendrils around his neck and down her back. Her coat and tail match her hair — the color of midnight, broken only by white "socks" at her hooves. She has a round face with soft brown eyes, a broad nose, and and full, pink lips.

Her torso is wrapped in light fabric of purple — the colour of the Starchasers. The cloth is held in place by a leather harness which holds her bow and quiver. Around her middle she wears a dark sash embroidered with thirteen stars of spider silk. The clothing leaves her belly partially bared, and she wears nothing else from the waist down, as is typical for centaurs.

Background

On a stormy November night, a filly was birthed under the sign of Sagittarius. The newborn's sire knew this meant the child would be prone to adventure and full of curiosity. Her quick birth told him that she wouldn't be an easy one to contain, but it is the way of centaurs to embrace the nature of things, so he gave her a appropriately wild name: Cyrene. It didn't take her long to live up to the name, as she much preferred playing with the colts than the other fillies — racing, wrestling, and generally making her dam worry.

In a happy moment

Early on, Cyrene showed signs of the Sight; she was often plagued with dreams of events yet to come. When she was old enough to understand what this power meant to her people, she began to resent it. Being a Seer came with expectations — the kind that would pull her away from what she really wanted to be doing. Her heart was never in her divination lessons, when she would show up for them at all. Her lack of focus has left her occasionally at the mercy of visions that she had little understanding of.

Seized by a vision

As Cyrene grew older, any hope that she would settle down was abandoned by her sire and dam. She was determined to do everything the males did. She became skilled with the bow, and would go hunting for small game with the young males. In time, she came under the mentorship of Donos, a master hunter of the herd. Donos's calm, level-headed demeanor was a welcome influence, as far Cyrene's parents were concerned. Not that she minded. Donos had a lot to teach her, and she wanted to be a great hunter like him.

When Cyrene was sixteen years of age, she became pregnant after a tryst with a young warrior named Fandral. She gave birth to a healthy colt that she called Bragan. She hasn't been the most attentive dam, but she loves her son, and gladly passes on what wisdom and skill she can to him.

Like many centaur Seers, Cyrene foresaw great danger in the forest, but could not identify it. When the troubles began, and herd turned against herd, she was among those that scouted the borders of Starchaser territory to watch for encroaching outsiders. It has given a sense of protectiveness over her herd that she didn't previously feel. At last she is feeling more like a part of a greater whole.

Relationships

Achirus

Achirus
Achirus is one of the few in the herd that seems to understand my relationship with the Sight, so I call him friend. Now and then, after a rousing fight or adventure, our blood gets up and we're more than friends. But that's all it is.

Bragan
Son: I love my Bray with all my heart. I know I haven't been a good dam to him. If I birthed him now, things might be different. But I was young and foolish. Now I'm older and slightly less foolish. (Interested in playing Bragan? Contact PirateSpice.)

Fandral

Fandral
Former Mate: We loved like a bonfire. It burned fast and hot, but it could not last. I am glad that he is the sire to my child, though. He's a better parent than I am…and there is still the occasional spark left between us. (Interested in playing Fandral? Contact PirateSpice.)

Oighrig

Oighrig
Mystic: She used to believe I would succeed her. How great an Augur can she be if she couldn't see that my destiny was elsewhere?

Torrigan

Torrigan
Chief: Torrigan can be pretty abrasive. Though…I admit that I do bite like the fly at times. I suppose he isn't so bad. He's kept us safe, and I know he cares far more about our people than about himself.
