@Moirin @vertigh0st @ShwiggityShwah

Cerulia- a mystical town that everyone thought was abandoned long ago. It isn’t a household name, and with one good look at this seemingly abandoned town, one would instantly know why. It’s a secluded town- only accessible by train with the tall mountains that surround it making it almost inaccessible through other means of travel. Cerulia has often been called "The City of Clouds" as it is high above sea level. During its early years of being founded, Cerulia thrived- as did its residents. Though, as the years went on, and the economy and times changed, the prosperity soon vanished.

The weather here has always been fair, and it always seems to be cool and foggy. The residents here have grown fond of their little alcove town- hidden away from the rest of the world. Many in the outside world have cited supernatural reasons as to why the population of the town dwindled down to a mere 3000 citizens, and dropping each year despite new babies being born.

Unbeknownst to those who spread the rumors, the stories are true, and far darker than they could have imagined.

The Ethereals who inhabit the town of Cerulia have been cursed to be forgotten by time. Thousands of years ago, they were blessed to live among the humans as long as they remain unseen. Living so high above the humans, it was easy to carry out the tasks they were known for- the changing of seasons, the sun, the sky, the weather patterns. But when a human gravely wounded a curious Ethereal who strayed too far from her path, they attacked the humans and killed a fair number of them in retaliation. For this transgression, they've been cursed to spend the rest of their days sealed away by human witches.

Really looking forward to this~! Just have few questions. For appearance would Demi Spirit largely resemble normal humans? Or do they differ in ways such as having abnormal eye/hair color, horns, wings, etc.?

I have a concept of a farming spirit, engineering/blacksmith, or something more elemental.

Do the demi spirits have relations with humans?

@vertigh0st Demi-Spirits are now being referred to as Ethereals. I just changed the name because I wanted it to look less like a first draft.

Anyway! Yes, they CAN look human in appearance, but some of them do exhibit other characteristics like horns or wings. My character has fox ears. Just don't go too too overboard. They are humanoid.

@ShwiggityShwah They have been closed off from the world for a long time, so I don't imagine they would have much of a relationship with humans. I kind of feel like they have a protection in place when humans do show up. Because the town itself isn't closed off by any means. It's just inaccessible by anything but train. Like when humans show up, they don't really see the magic of the place unless they're more susceptible to it or unless they look too closely- which most don't tend to do.

The Ethereals I think would be still deeply hurt by the events that transpired to get them sealed in their small town. The wounding of the girl that led to the killing of humans. Most of the older ones are still very bitter about it because they lived through it. While, I imagine some of our characters might take their parents' stances on the matter, I feel like they would be more open to breaking the curse and trying to leave so they don't all die off. If that makes sense.

Oh, okay! I gotcha. ^_^ Also one last question, what age would our characters be? Like would they be in their teenage years to young adults?

@vertigh0st Please try to keep them 18 to 28 in human years. They are young apprentices to start out, yes. If you can make a case as to why your character should be older, then I will accept it within reason.

I'm very interested in the setting and idea, but I'm worried about not being able to make a character developed enough for it. If any of questions don't make sense or come across as insensitive, I apologize beforehand. I do wanna give this a really good try!

In what manner of "packaging" were the Ethereals sealed? Petrified statues, or stuck in the sky, or were they just removed from sight and sound? I'm unclear on how the curse has affected us or the previous generations.

Are Ethereals locked into being forces of nature (eg. Changing the seasons, the sun, the sky)? How do their abilities work?

Our OC Ethereals are intended to be born and raised after the curse and to have grown up under its effects. So it's likely we've only had other Ethereals to share companionship, with no contact with human beings being the norm, right?

So! I appreciate questions.

This movie was heavily inspired by a movie called big fish and begonia. Which is a Chinese movie. The characters in the movie are spirits of some sort. They are all capable of basic nature magic such as helping plants grow and what not, but as they get older, their magic becomes more specialized. I wanted to take the same concepts here as well. So now that our characters are older and old enough to start learning their specializations, most drift away from nature magic.

There are roles like the soul collector and other things of that nature but these people are often lesser spirits given the title of an ethereal.

I think someone had an idea to be a keeper of the town. Like he does the upkeep on the trains and the roads. So his powers would pertain to such things.

The curse forces the ethereals to stay inside their small village. There's an invisible field around it that acts as a border to keep them in. Humans can enter, but rarely do. When humans do enter, it looks like a ghost town, and the inhabitants look like monsters regardless of how beautiful they appear to each other.

To leave the barrier, it needs either be broken by the witches who cast the curse or you need an object from the human world. But if you choose the latter option, you won't be able to reenter the barrier.

These ethereals have had no contact with humans. But have grown up hearing the stories about how heartless humans are. It's also kind of like Atlantis where they're trapped and even though there are children and stuff, its no secret they're a dying people.

I've finished my character for this (for the most part). I'm happy with him.
