If anyone would like to submit art of Celeste, I'll credit you!
Note: Some things in this profile may seem like it gives me the opportunity to powergame, but please understand that though Celeste is very advanced mentally, it comes with many drawbacks in other areas of her life. I feel that they balance out.

History
Childhood:
Celeste grew up around many elves, mostly moors and a few silver elves. From a very young age, she loved learning. Though she couldn't afford to go to school, she found old books and read constantly, with the help of her parents. It wasn't just any type of learning she was interested in, though. She loved science, specifically psychology, specifically psychoanalytics, and phenomenons such as telepathy. Her parents thought it was great that she was so invested in her education. They were always very supportive of her. They knew that in their state of poverty, she had to get the most of her childhood.

Teen Years:
In her teen years, things got worse when her mother passed away in the civil war along with her father. It was at this age that Celeste started to value her health and family. She continued to study phenomenons and her studies started to become more serious in her life.

Adulthood:
As an adult, she moved to Asrakos with the rest of her family. Shortly after, disaster struck. The entire city broke into civil war, and she had to flee along with the rest of her relatives. While chaos caused confusion, Celeste was captured, forced, and blackmailed to go by the name of her aunt, "Korrina Ligeia". Reasoning for this is still unknown, and Celeste is determined to find answers. Her family longed for her return, but she never showed. Many years later, "Korrina" escaped. She fled from captivity and was wandering around for days. On the verge of death, she found Storm's Landing, an Island far from the 'camp' she was being held at. After talking with a few townsfolk, she was reconnected back to Theodosius, her brother, who was previously missing as presumed dead as well. Then, Theo, her, and Alijol went on to establish Astrakhan. They had all been happily reunited, but that wasn't the end of Celeste's suffering. After her years of being held captive, she had started to believe that she actually was her aunt, Korrina. It wasn't until she she stumbled upon an old crumpled paper of herself and her beloved brother that she snapped out of it. The paper had a caption. It read "Celeste and Theodosius." At first, Celeste was confused. She recognized that the woman in the sketch was her, but not why she was called Celeste. As you can imagine, she began to grow scared. She barely remembered anything from the time she was captured. The more she thought about it, the more she was able to recover bits and pieces of her memory. To this day, she still does not fully remember what happened in those long years. This is one of the many reasons she cherishes her intelligence. Without her motor skills, she doubts she would be able to live her life how she wants to today.

Family History:
Celeste grew up with quite a large family. There are many Herenii, and even she gets them mixed up sometimes! Celeste takes her family very seriously. If they are put into danger she will do all in her power to ensure their safety.

She picked up a decent amount of Mok'yra from her Moor friends who taught her
I'm afraid you can't have this knowledge via backstory, and kindly ask that you remove that snippet.

To settle in Astrakhan and start her work.
If this is not a place on either of our maps, I'm not sure you can manage. Made up cities are alright in backstories providing they are not from another server or a magical place.

Thank you for pointing this out to me. I will fix the Mok'yra history. The location is the name of a town that a few friends and I have yet to start. Is it okay for me to have this in my profile if the town isn't built yet? A goal of Korrina's is to settle there once it's built.
