"This was no breath from the skies whose motions and dimensions our astronomers measure or deem too vast to measure. It was just a colour out of space—a frightful messenger from unformed realms of infinity beyond all Nature as we know it; from realms whose mere existence stuns the brain and numbs us with the black extra-cosmic gulfs it throws open before our frenzied eyes."
- Hatsune Miku

Appearance: Anthelion is wiry and thin - like a strong breeze might knock her over. She rarely cares for her physical appearance and will frequently look disheveled and tired - though her state of dress is rarely (if ever) even slightly out of order. Unassuming, and easy to miss in most situations.

Personality: Soft spoken, twitchy, and irritable. Constantly checking her watch as if expecting something to occur - or as if knowing the exact time will be relevant later. If you do something she doesn't like, she will make you painfully aware so you don't do it again.


  • Long-Term Nimbus: There's a subtle tug. The slow, swelling urge towards temptation. Come on, treat yourself. You know you want to...
  • Immediate Nimbus: A flare of indescribable color radiates outwards from Anthelion's silhouette like an eclipse. It distorts the air it touches, begging to be understood, but leaves onlookers feeling overwhelmed - struggling to contain it all within their mind. (8-Again to Occult, -1 to Composure)
  • Signature Nimbus: Warped space wherever the spell was cast from - manifesting somewhat like an ocular migraine aura.

Public History

  • Born in the city West, Texas in 1988. Yes, that's a city. Which is just a little bit north of Waco on a map. Ironically it's not in West Texas.
  • Awakened in 2013 during the last semester of college at A&M University in College Station.
  • Currently works as a forensics consultant.
  • Joined the Guardians of the Veil while in Austin, Texas.
  • Moved to Philadelphia in 2018.

  • Harsh Noise There's order to be recognized in chaos if one is willing to stop, and pick out the useful pieces. If you hear the atrocious sound of Harsh Noise blaring from a tiny earbud speaker, it's probably because Anthelion is nearby, and has once again forgotten (or failed to care) that few people actively set out to hear consistent, unflinching and enveloping walls of monolithic noise.
  • People Watching Do you feel as though you're being watched? Anthelion has a terrible habit of hanging out in public places just to keep an eye on people, so it's possible that feeling is warranted.
  • Problem Solver Have an issue? Want to bounce ideas off of a neutral party? Anthelion will try her best to help you muddle through whatever your issue - even if it bores her half-way out of her skull.


  • Little Fox: COMING SOON
  • Vasily: "I think, for now, my interest outweighs my annoyance."
  • Mearcstapa: "A delightful resource to tap - and a pleasant enough social connection."


"She acts like there's nothing to her, if you don't look closely. That's probably why I like her - people think the same about me. I like her depths, and that isn't only a sex joke." - Naika

This is a thankless job.
It doesn't pay that well.
maybe it's a feel-good thing for me.
I can't tell. I can't tell.
Look, I may be strong,
but I've only got two arms.
Call that guy in Metropolis
and say "I can't handle this!"
"White Rabbit," Jefferson Airplane
When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's off with her head
Remember what the Dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head
"Snowqueen of Texas," The Mamas & the Papas
I'm on my knees, your majesty
Snowqueen, save a cold kiss of me
I'm on my knees your majesty
Snowqueen of Texas.
