the Rift


“Happiness. It was the place where passion, with all its dazzle and drumbeat, met something softer: homecoming and safety and pure sunbeam comfort. It was all those things, intertwined with the heat and the thrill, and it was as bright within her as a swallowed star.” ― Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone “Fantasy, if it's really convincing, can't become dated, for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time.” ― Walt Disney Company "Reality has exiled me. I am no longer bound by its laws." The user can manipulate the time in general area or a specific target in various manners, the basics revolving around accelerating, slowing, stopping and even rewinding or looping. The range of area affected is proportional to the mastery of the user, with top levels can affect the entire space and time continuum.

Personality
Strengths and weaknesses
“There are times when the mind is dealt such a blow it hides itself in insanity. While this may not seem beneficial, it is. There are times when reality is nothing but pain, and to escape that pain the mind must leave reality behind.”
― Patrick Rothfuss

Quirky | Passive | Shy | Forgetful | Honest | Gullible | Skittish | Dreamy | Gentle


x As a two year old | Shy, sensitive and reclusive, the little bat exhibits many traits of the Pteropodidae - the creature that she perceives herself to be; she is skittish, both nervous and excitable, but gentle and sweetly natured too. The world she views is a complicated fusion of fact and fiction, so she relies heavily upon olfaction and audition - the power of listening, to form an educated opinion about her surroundings (she has all but lost touch with reality). Due to this, she can seem vague, thinking and communicating in an unfocused way, as well as gullible and naive, lacking experience and good judgement; though overall she portrays a very obvious air of innocence. The pup is noticeably distrait and dreamy (even in the breathy quality of her voice), and she is prone to forgetfulness as a result - far more likely to retain the shape of someone rather than their name or title, she is drawn to aesthetic pleasure. Having said all of that, Stellaluna is primarily a compassionate, passive and honest soul.

“Well,' the Goddess said, 'your heart didn't heal straight the last time it broke.
So we'll break it again and reset it so it heals straight this time.”

Da | …

Ma | A kindhearted 'leather-wing' who percieved that her precious, puny daughter was malformed, therefore creating the magical world of Alchira around her. For the sake of protecting the vulnerable child's sense of self worth (given that she was so unlike her peers), she instilled in Stellaluna the belief that she was another species altogether - a flying fox, and that myriads of perfectly wonderful fairy-folk were her kin.

Siblings | After Stellaluna, her Ma was too frightened to bear another child.

History
Homeland and heritage
x Birth Land | Gondwana 'Awarai Ridge'
x Flock | Awarai leather-wings
x Native Tongue | Common
x Latitude | Southern
x Landscape | Two days hike southeast of the Helovian threshold, located on the precipitous escarpment on the east of the undulating Gondwana plateau, the wilderness consists of impressive cliffs, rugged ridges, spurs and streams. To the north the Goolna and Uloowaran Rivers drain across the tablelands, while east lies the thickly forested Buli Buli crater, with Awarai Ridge perched precariously between. The diverse vegetation in Gondwana includes sub-tropical, warm temperate and cool temperate rainforest in the higher altitude; there are also areas of sclerophyll forest, sub-alpine woodland, heathland and swampland in the lower.

"There, an abundance of leathery-leafed timber (mostly eucalyptus) ascend precarious, shabby granite tors, each reaching boldly with wedge crowns to gain the best coverage of sunlight; a winding, watercourse babbles gently downwards, riding savage contours into the sprawling wooded valley below; the soil is thirsty, so unaccustomed to rain that its flint-like quality repels the taste of moisture (at first), yet peas, acacias and varieties of tussocky grass thrive there upon it regardless; the air is crisp, clean, and the song of raucous parrot life drowns out all peace and quiet. In the mid-section, where gnarled limbs begin their heavenward journey and knotted, silver trunks begin at last to narrow, the campsite exists, of a flock of forty strong 'leather-wings' – the family the ‘pup’, should rightfully be with…"

Alchira 'Al-kee-ra'
“When you compare the sorrows of real life to the pleasures of the imaginary one,
you will never want to live again, only to dream forever.”

― Alexandre Dumas


First and foremost, Stellaluna exists in a fantasy world initially created by Ma as a means of protecting the vulnerable child from a cold, cruel and deadly world; within it, she understands herself and her family to be flying foxes, aerial creatures who seldom sink to the dangerous surface of the earth. The sanctuary (a reflection of the beautiful May Gibbs stories), is elaborate, cleverly detailed, and constantly evolving as she learns, explores and experiences the world. There are key characters who accompany her Alchirian adventures:

x Charlie | A Little Red Flying Fox, who's friendship Stellaluna thinks of as sisterly; mostly they are together.

x Gumnut Babies | Endearing, plump, pink skinned homunculi, barley six inches tall. They are modelled on the appearance of young Eucalyptus (gum tree) nuts. The female gumnut babies, however, have their hair, hats and skirts modelled on Eucalyptus flowers. Shy and peaceful in nature, these tiny folk are seen only by the most discerning eye.

x Bad-Banksias (‘wolfs’) | The villains of the Alchira with the appearance of aged Banksia ‘cones', with follicles for eyes and other facial features. The have humanoid arms (with hands) and legs which they hurry about on.

"Tiny obsidian hooves flinched beneath the warmth of her small body, a sound below touched pricked ears and her neat, narrow face flicked down towards it. Wombat? …she wondered, hoped, scouring the murky floor below for the distinct fawn, boulder body, of ‘Old Fatty’, as he waddled on by (he had a terrible temperament, and had she not have had a run in only days before, the bat might have too eagerly slipped from her perch to seek his aid). "
nict-O-‘fil-E-a

"Curious blue eyes plunge between the leafy arms of her host and the ancient timber’s gnarled knuckles loosen their vigilant grip; presently, the bat swings lower, descending his body with the reckless skill of youth, trusting and heedless, even as clawless toes slide and slip along the way. He will catch her, she knows, but he needn’t."
