I can't thank Synnie and Danny enough. I'm sure you all are curious as to what has happened. When Danny put her UFA again, I did not reapply. Synnie had applied for her with the intention of giving her to me (without my knowledge LOL). And after waiting an amount of time to TRICK ME, she was like LOL SURPRISE.

The forest whispers to you, greeting your presence with the cheerful melody of chirping birds and rustling leaves from a gentle breeze. As you walk down the dirt trail, you stop to close your eyes and just... breathe. The forest is alive, and you can feel its heartbeat rising up from the very ground beneath you and it is invigorating.

Never have you felt so alive.

As you open your eyes, a glimmer in the bushes catches your eye. You pick up what appears to be a beautiful bronze brooch with an enormous turquoise adorning it.
You hear a gasp in the distance, and look to where it came, but can see nothing. Your eyes move back to your hands and a soft mist lingers around them. The brooch is gone.

Deep within the Altadorian Woods, far from the busy capital, there is a small castle. While the castle itself was only built in the last 20 years or so, it looks as though it could be hundreds of years old; it is a beautiful, architectural work of medieval art. Surrounded by a breathtaking garden, filled with exotic flora and the native fauna, it seems like an all too storybook place to live.

The door to one of the many servant's entrances opens, and a young kyrii girl steps out carrying a tray of tea and scones. She is no servant. In fact, there are no servants at this castle, simply the residents who live here. She pushes open the door with her back and lets the midmorning sun grace her face. Altalena bows her head slightly as she adjusts to the light. Behind her, a younger aisha girl steps out into the light as well, carrying a small basket with a table cloth and other various utensils. She need not shield her eyes, there isn't much to be seen by the blind. "It's far too beautiful to have tea inside today, Reni," Alta beamed.

Altalena heads towards one of the many viewing areas of their vast garden. Here, there are ornate stone benches and a small outdoor chess table. She sets down the tray and beings prepping brunch while Reni sits down on the grass.
But they are not alone.

A slight mist begins to form around their ankles, so thin that neither of them notice it at first. But then a small, and slightly more noticeable fog rolls in from the forest. Altalena continues to prepare her food, oddly composed despite the strange phenomenon. She calls out to the mist cheerfully, "Kessa, love, have you come to join us for brunch?"

Before a moment could pass for a response, a puff of mist bursts out on the opposite end of the small table, causing Alta to gasp and nearly fall back in surprise. "KESSA, how many times have I told you not to pop in like that!" Altalena reaches out to the ixi girl who immediately grabs the biggest scone from off of the table and begins to run towards the forest.

Alta gave chase! "MAH SCONNEEEE," she shrieked with dismay.

Kessa looked back behind her, prancing just ahead of Altalena and giggled, "You're too slow, old friend!" She lead Altalena just a little further into the forest a little before lifting up a hand and grabbing a tree branch, that seemed to just appear for her, and swinging right up into the trees.

Alta halted immediately, and leaned against the tree branch, giggling and gasping for breath. "Oh god, I'm getting too old for this," she panted, "I assume there's a reason for you bringing me he-" she stopped. Kessa had tilted her head up, and looked out into the clearing they stopped in. Alta gasped in amazement.

The small clearing, was slightly darker than the rest of Kessa's forest, but for good reason. The stones that littered the ground glowed and seemed to move. Within the grass, the wings of hundreds of iridescent turquoise butterflies flitted softly; the entire forest was humming from the beat of their slumber. It was the most magnificent and magical sight that Alta had ever seen. "Thank you," she whispered, "for this," Alta watched the blue field in awe.

Kessa hopped down from the branch and kissed Altalena softly on the cheek, "You're welcome, my friend." A gentle mist formed once again, and she was gone. And Alta was left alone in the clearing, entranced by the gift from the forest spirit.



I tried to keep this just short and fun. It's really meant to be more of a character reference than a history. Short stories are the most fun to write and read, imo. c: Obviously more to come if I can continue my character with her.













































Due to the oddness of her name, I've changed her character name to how I've always pronounce it, which makes me love her more because an old alias of mine was Kesshi *-*~ C:
Name: Kessa
Nickname: Kess or Kay
Age: You should know not to ask a girl her age.
Gender: Female
Residence: Western Altadorian Woods.
Height: 5'7

Likes: Visitors, gardening, playing pranks and Alta's family.
Dislikes: Hunters, clothes, being pranked, symols and slorgs.

Petpet: Boq the Rainbow Weewoo


The Situation: Kessa is an ancient forest spirit. She prefers things to be au naturel. However this obviously isn't acceptable in modern society (or on Neo, lol). When she first wandered into Alta's estate, Alta tried to force her to put some clothes on. Did not go well. Eventually, she agreed to at least cover herself with a simple and loose cotton cloth, held up by a pretty brooch that Alta bribed her with. But she really only wears this on the rare occasion she's around people.

*If you draw her (lol), please either cover areas tastefully with her hair or force her into her lame cloth rofl.













































Mischievous would probably be the best description for Kessa. While she takes pride in keeping her forest beautiful, she also enjoys the freedom she has as a faerie spirit. She's as old as the forest itself, but her heart is light and her spirit is young. She's no matron like Queen Fyora, she exists to enjoy life.

Sometimes she'll play tricks on travelers, switching paths and landmarks - but she means no harm, ultimately they end up where they wanted to go, but with a much more interesting story to share. It is a rare moment when her forest is not filled with the whispers of her laughter somewhere off in the distance. Even at night, there is always the soft hum of her singing the forest to sleep.

However it's rare for a visitor to be graced by her presence. She's meant to be a faceless guardian of the forest after all. On occasion, she shows herself in the form of a white deer, which is what most people recognize her as. While most people realize that there is a forest spirit, very few of them know who she is or what she really looks like, the only associate her with the white deer in the mist. But should you have business with her, or should you be unfortunate enough to upset her, you'll find that she's anything but shy.














































Weewoos are not native to Altador. Most of the surrounding forests are filled with Altachuck, Alabriss, Naalala, and the occasional Vaeolus. So when a little rainbow Weewoo wandered into Kessa's domain, it was a rather unique sight to see. His vibrant plumage alarmed many of the native fauna, who thus alerted Kessa of this strange intruder.

But it wasn't his color that attracted Kessa - though of course, the resemblance to her hair was amusing to her - but his demeanor. Unlike the other petpets that treated Kessa with the respect of a faerie, Boq cozied up to her like a long lost friend. It was Boq who decided that Kessa's hair would make the perfect - and most comfy - camouflage around. Despite being baffled by the fact that he ignored proper petpet etiquette, Kessa quickly fell in love with the little fluffers.

Boq is a curious little thing; after his immediate bond with Kessa, he rarely leaves his self-proclaimed hair nest. To be perfectly honest, who would? It was technically the safest place in the entire forest (not that there were really any predators anyway.) But when he did leave his nest, it wouldn't waddle far from his protector. Truth be told, it was rather difficult for him to travel due to his lack of wings and stubby legs, so goodness knows how he even got to the woods in the first place.














































When I first started designing Kessa, I initially had her more as a dryad character than a nymph. She was also a bit more of a seductress and more physically connected with the forest, but I really didn't want to go that route. My current characters are really just... fun; so I thought it only fitting to make her a bit more mischievous than malicious, so she wasn't so detached from the group.

The 2nd draft of her design was actually a lot darker, but after going through my story, I realized that she's really more of a light-hearted character, and dark colors did not suit her personality at all. I sort of feel like I might have overdone it with her hair, but honestly, I love it, and it does fit her quite nicely. The story around that is somewhere along the lines of getting bored and trying to sneak into the rainbow pool. Who knew going in there without permission just turned things rainbow? hurhur.

I was really inspired by this whole white deer superstition. There's apparently a whole myth/legend/what-have-you about how killing a white deer brings misfortune whomever gave the killing blow. It was all rather interesting, so I thought I'd put a little charmed mysteriousness around Kessa, but I really didn't want to touch too much on the negative; I find that the less serious the stories of my characters are, the more I have fun with them - and that's what's important, right? c:

Also, I should mention why she doesn't have wings. I really just didn't want her to have them; her means of travel is through mist, so why have something unnecessary? Plus, I much like simpler characters. Seeing as her hair is RAINBOW, I figured I should draw the line, haha.













































Altalena is the owner of the little estate in Kessa's woods. She's transformed from a naive and self-centered little princess into a slightly more responsibly noble. However, she still loves nothing more than running around with her family.

I painted Alta myself back in the day. c: I was also saving up for another Kyrii while the conversions happened..
Vahlex is of course, the older brother of my girlies. Very humble and levelheaded compared to his sister, Alta. He's a fairly typical prince charming. *swoon*

I only just recently traded for him, but I've literally been wanting one for years. I had apped for Vanilore in the past and parts of that character are now his.
Reniok is Alta's younger sister. She was born blind, and as such, she was kept slightly sheltered growing up. However she is an extremely pure-hearted person, and few who meet her have anything bad to say.

I adopted Reniok a few years ago. A very trying application process, but honestly one of my favorite character(s) and stories came out of it. c:
Dhanari is a Clairvoyant, which I interpret as being able to read auras. She acts as an advisor for the royal family. While she's quite mysterious and a bit hard to read sometimes, she really is a very loyal and levelheaded person.

Dhanari was a gift to me from my old neofriend when she quit ;o;♥
Vaidao, my little sock bat. He is by far, one of my most favorite characters of mine. He's just a little one, but his personality is just so lovable. xD

I adopted Vai 2 years ago or so? I stuck through the application process for over a year. Most nerve wracking months of my life. xD
Raggles is, in my story, a Creator. He brings plushies, like Vai, to life. This is obviously pretty important considering I have a couple other plushies; most of their stories revolve around him.

My very first adopted pet. His character's actually grown a lot since I've gotten him, but I'm really fond of his old personality, I can't bring myself to change it. :C
Lezsli is my most recent addition and she's undergoing a revamp at the moment. Her story revolves around being stuck in the tower of Alta's home, tending to the mechanics of the giant clock. Kessa takes an interest in her, as she is the only member of the grounds who never leaves the castle.













































The last few months I've been going over my overall storyline so far. I've made note of quite a few issues, one of which being that I hadn't really explained where everything was taking place beyond just saying Altadorian Woods. Setting is so important in a storyline, and I thought that personifying it would be fitting considering Altalena's connection to her home. I didn't want my story to just take place in lolFOREST - I wanted a bit of charm (and humor).













































I honestly never expect fanart for any of my chars, so getting any fanart at all makes me squeal like a little girl. *0*
Hover to see who drew themmm~♥

Kessa can ultimately be described as a very light-hearted, carefree spirit. She cares very much about her home, and does her absolute best to make it the most beautiful woods in all of Neopia, and she is known for that. Most spirits don't really advertise their presences, but Kessa likes having credit for her masterpiece and does show herself to visitors, usually in the form of a white deer (which I can't draw... yet).

However, while she tries to keep occupied by adding to and changing her forest, she often gets bored. She tends to play little tricks on people to pass the time, like changing the path or adding things to landmarks that are ridiculous, like CAKE. But it's always in good fun, and never to hurt anyone.

In order to build in her woods, Altalena had to get permission from her when she commissioned it - when Alta was only 5. They have been friends since (and that is a different story). Since then, Kessa has taken a liking to Alta and her family and visits often; she is somewhat of a motherly figure to Alta, who never had one. Hence the bond is formed.
