Backstory: Cyril was born into a pretty average family, along with his brother. His city was the largest around, resembling a sort of medieval time period. Though he was raised around the city, he always preferred being away from the large groups of people, and could usually be found watching from rooftops. As he grew and times changed, he found himself fascinated with the occasional merchant who would wander in and tell stories of different cities, and the distant mountains. As the nobles of the city learned of the goods distant cities held, they started rallying people to find trade routes through the desert. Cyril eagerly volunteered himself, and seeing that very few people wanted to leave the city, he was trained to navigate and sustain himself in the desert. Thus began his career as a cartographer.

 

How did they get involved with dimension traveling?

Back when DTA was starting up again, Holly went charting different dimensions. She ended up in the western desert of Cyril’s world, in an area near where he happened to be charting. Seeing her in the distance, he thought she was a mirage, but after a while of observing, he decided to check it out to be sure. After a lot of chasing, being mistaken as a kidnapper, then being hit over the head, Cyril calmed Holly down some. After struggling with the language barrier, Cyril insisted on gifting the girl his bead-and-feather necklace for protection. All was pretty calm, until Cyril shoved a scarf in Holly’s face and began pulling her away. Thinking she was being kidnapped again, there was more punching, until she saw the wall of sand headed their way. Cyril tried his best to show Holly what to do to make it through, but when the sand hit, he quickly lost track of her. When the sandstorm subsided, he found a part of his scarf coming out of the sand, along with a little metal box. He picked it up and decided to hide it away, and carried on, writing stories about ‘the girl from the sky’.

 

Many years later, Alexia was having a boring day and decided to poke through Holly’s things while she was away. She found an incomplete dimension file, along with coordinates, and decided to go on a quick dimension trip. Grabbing Chris and Victoria (and insisting it was important), she traveled to the coordinates, and following the tracking device left by Holly, landed in the middle of the desert. Cyril freaked out, having three strange looking people show up in front of him from seemingly nowhere. Alexia quickly declared it was too hot, grabbed Cyril, and traveled back to HQ with her friends. Victoria and Chris weren’t very happy about it, but Alexia showed the new guest around right away, after finding a translator. After much confusion and chaos, Nathan found Alexia with Cyril, and decided it would be easier to just send Cyril back rather than explain what happened to BOSS. So Cyril was sent back, with a parting gift of pop tarts and a stuffed bunny toy. He wants to go back and travel through different dimension, so he keeps his eyes out for anything out of the ordinary.

Relationships with Pre-Existing DTs 

Holly: Cyril literally obsessed over meeting Holly for years. No, he never really discussed it with anyone, but he wrote about it all the time and ran after ever ‘strange’ thing he saw. He even made it into some weird fairy tale where a magical lady fell from the sky. He didn’t know where she came from, or where she went, but he kept that little metal tracking device with him everywhere he went.

Alexia: Although significantly freaked out by her at first, Cyril warmed up to the kid a bit. Still a little freaked out though. His feathers probably fascinate Alexia.

Chris: Chris seemed like a pretty cool guy, though Cyril was thoroughly confused by his clothing. After being freaked out, Cyril asked Chris a lot of questions about dimension traveling

Victoria: After seeing a demonstration of Victoria’s magic, Cyril is afraid of her. Like, really afraid, and maybe a little impressed. Victoria probably liked freaking him out a bit

Nathan: Initial impression of Nathan came from word of Alexia, who talked about him quite a lot. When Cyril met Nathan, he was really freaked out.He’d never seen anyone that pale before, and then there was also the bit of attitude which intimidated him. Nice scarf, though.

Laurelle: Cyril only met Laurelle in passing, in which his initial reaction was that she was probably a pretty nice, calm person. Laurelle was probably just confused about where the weird guy came from.

Um: Cyril never actually met Um, but Alexia talked about her a lot. She seems like she would be a nice person-at least from what she said.

 

Extra:

His people are called the ‘corvus’ or ‘crow people’. They’re characterized by mid-to dark brown/grey skin tones, with darker black color on the extremities. Singular is corvo, plural are corvus

Facial marking is part of the race-a small version of the mark is present at birth, and develops to full size during puberty. This is often used for identification

Facial markings are never the same between two people, though families may pass on similar patterns

After puberty, corvus grow small feathers around their dark extremities. Legend says they descended from crows, buuut that’s just a legend.

By nature, corvus have a high heat tolerance and better water retention than things like humans

Corvus are usually born in pairs of two, with one or three being slightly less common. Babies are born very small and require a lot of attention for the first month or two

Cities are build very compactly with large walls to protect against sandstorms

Actual bird feathers are worn to protect people from the wilderness. Supposedly you’ll die if you don’t wear them while venturing away from civilization, which isn’t necessarily true, people just go missing anyways.

Cyril’s eyesight isn’t the greatest, he could benefit from glasses

Cyril doesn’t like spending much time around home because his brother annoys him and him mom embarrasses him. He makes a trip back occasionally anyways

Clothing is pretty light, so he has an additional coat and lots of blankets to throw over him to stay warm at night. I'd draw it, but I'm lazy

Age is measured by the moons-there are two moons in his world's sky, and they converge once a year. This is their measurement of time

Hello world, just wanted to do a few quick updates because I've been absent so much.

I've been having a bit of issues with my body recently.
I don't know if I've ever mentioned it here, but I have scoliosis- basically instead of being straight, my back makes a sort of 'S' curve. It started because I had an early puberty where I got all my growth really quickly, so my spine went out of whack.

Right now, my spine is about 25 degrees off from where it's supposed to be, so I've never had to get a brace or surgery. I had a few X-rays of my back over summer, and the doctor said that I'm done growing, so it probably won't get any worse.

Of course, I've always been told to excursive my back a lot to help keep it from getting any worse, but the problem is that it gives me a really hard time exercising. I can't run extensively, or even walk or stand for a long time, without it getting uncomfortable-ESPECIALLY running ohgod

I've been through 2 rounds of physical therapy to help get the muscles to move. The problem when your back is so crooked is that the muscles on one side get REALLY strained, but the ones on the other side are left doing pretty much nothing. In order to fix it, you have to exercise your back, but it hurts....quite a lot.

Anyways, I've gotten quite lazy and stopped doing my back exercises. My mum suggested going to a new chiropractor because it does get uncomfortable sometimes.

So, I started at a new chiropractor a few months ago, and they decided to do some extra X-rays and scans. I got some X-rays of my neck, and also had a scan of my back to look where all the electricity was traveling in my spine (which was super cool BTW).

When I got all the results back, my chiropractor told me that because the uneven use of my muscles, the muscles on one side of my back could potentially become more loosely attached, and that could, worst case scenario, end up in paralysis or me losing the function of some of my organs...by the time I'm thirty. Worst case scenario, of course, but not to say I didn't freak out.

Later, after looking at my neck X-rays, the chiropractor said that I might have more problems. She said that my brain could be extending farther into my (crooked) neck, which could cause problems. After more freaking out, my mum got a second opinion from my doctor, who said I'd need another X-ray to have a solid conclusion. After that, I might have to get an MRI of my head, which I am TERRIFIED OF

So essential, I don't trust my spine. 
Sorry for the huge text wall

As far as mental health, I'm feeling pretty good. I've been pretty stable and fairly happy recently, so I'm getting my medicine dosage upped. I'm going to apologize in advance-when I get my medicine switched around, I usually get moody and unstable and I can't always control it. Sorry if I come across bitchy or anything.

I've also finally gotten over a 4.0 at school, and I'm hoping to tie my first ACT this spring. So scared.

Anyways, I've got to dash now. I just wanted to pop by and tell you guys why I haven't been very active here. Well, it's a lot of other things really, but I'll get to that later

Anyways, I hope you're having a great day!
Feel free to pop by and say hey!

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
