Eventually, even Kaika let out a few snickers. Once the laughter faded, the trio looked back out upon the festivities. "So... where are we gonna set up?" Stardawn asked. "On the edges," Tallow immediately answered. "That way someone from the Observatory is less likely to see us." "Oh, come on, Dad won't be mad!" Stardawn said. "But fine." The trio glided down to the fringes of the festival center, setting up their starchart ("I didn't steal it!" "Sure, Stardawn.") on a blanket and holding it down with a few astronomer's tools.

WELCOME TO THE CONSTELLATION CONNECTION!

"...No, seriously, why are we doing this!?"

A purple Imperial with a distinctly crystal sheen walked alongside a pink Imperial who seemed to shed glitter. Though he seemed wary, head ducked down and glancing every which way, his glittery companion seemed unconcerned.

"And besides, knowledge like this is meant to be shared! We mapped out an entire new section of the sky! We can't just hide it from everyone. We're a flight of scientists, dreamers; it's our duty."

The other two stared at her.

"Hey, Stardawn, everything cool?" the Fae asked. "We love you, but you're not usually prone to spouting wisdom."

Stardawn shrugged, expression turning serious for a moment.

"It's true, isn't it?" Her gaze flickered over to the other Imperial. "Hey, Tallow."

"Yes?"

Stardawn's grin returned.

"Tree."

"Wait, wh-" Tallow whipped his head around, only to find himself with a face full of luminescent leaves. He sputtered and shook his head as his two friends laughed at him.

The purple Imperial, Tallow, turns to talk to you as Stardawn and Kaika frantically work the Eye behind him.

"So, you'll help us? Great! Let me tell you what to do... And make sure you follow the rules, please." He glances at his friends. "They really don't need any more encouragement."

MEET THE ASTRONOMERS

DVIVID.png

Kaikamahineth

28108680_350.png
A dragon of house Shatterspell, Kaikamahineth (or Kaika, as she's more commonly known) is the most serious, and studious of the trio. Of course, one doesn't become a part of Shatterspell without being willing to bend some rules, and her natural curiosity often gets the best of her. She's surprisingly impulsive once she gets something in her head - and being friends with Stardawn doesn't help.

Tallow

32111365_350.png
Tallow is the most practical of the trio, and thus his nerves are always just a little frayed (nevermind that nerves don't actually fray) as he tries to keep his friends in line. Considering the enormity of such a task, he takes it pretty well, generally meeting the others' antics with nothing more than a sigh and a "please don't hurt yourselves". On bigger (mis)adventures, though, he tags along, waving it off as "making sure those two don't hurt themselves".

Stardawn

24653733_350.png
Unlike Kaika and Tallow, Stardawn is a member of house Runesworn, and it shows in her... unorthodox methods. Talented but flighty, Stardawn is usually the one leading the group into their escapades - though she's off the hook for this one. (Mostly.) Her energy seems to have no bounds, and much to Tallow's chagrin, she generally puts it to use either rushing headlong into experiments or enabling Kaika's more impulsive tendencies.
