Biography

9aoBmPK.png

Bought to be an Earth Rep lol, she's named after the Roman agricultural deity.

Ceres is the wise old woman of the lair-don't let her hatch date fool you. She is an integral advisor to Juniper and Eurydice and helps educate the hatchlings about lair life and legends. She is also an expert storyteller well-versed in the legends and pairings of the Lair of Many References. She is often seen with the mute Ariadne, speaking softly to her, and she understands why the timid ridgeback seems reluctant to sit in on her storytelling sessions. She has an extensive library which she opens to all of the Lair's inhabitants, going so far as to employ Matilda as a Librarian and even tutor Alma, the lair's most prolific scholar, there. Ceres knows about PROJECT 3MP3R0R but doesn't like it one bit.

She’s also taken it upon herself to write about the more...non-draconian members of TLoMR, though most of what she writes is embellished with flowery language. You never know when you're going to get a publishing deal after all. Her private journal entries can be found dotted throughout the lair in papyrus font, especially page 5. She's even adopted one of them, little Urodela, the Bogsneak-like salamander. Most of what she has written down was a combined effort: Alma wrote while she dictated (and rambled on and on). Of course, notes on PROJECT 3MP3R0R were written by herself since it is still so secretive of a subject.

As part of her life of learning and educating about the history and lore of her clan and Sornieth, Ceres learned to speak and read Coatl as well as common Dragonspeak. Her Coatl isn't perfect, but it's good enough to surprise any Coatl who she talks to. She doesn't brag about it, but secretly, she's proud of her ability to read Coatl, because it lets her research texts in the minority language and uncover information about the continent's history which otherwise would be completely inaccessible to her. She takes her duties as Earth Rep with good humour, often leaving Matilda or Alma in charge if she has meetings to attend. The other Reps adore her cheese scones.

UPDATE: Ceres has undertaken an expedition into the Shifting Expanse (more specifically, the Highland Scrub) to find some answers about her recent obsession: Faraday the monolith. Many warned her it would be foolish to go alone, so she took a few dragons along with her to act as an expedition crew/bodyguard unit.

273px-Ceres_of_Mérida_%28cropped%29.jpg In ancient Roman religion, Ceres (/ˈsɪəriːz/;Latin: Cerēs [ˈkɛreːs]) was a goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships. She was originally the central deity in Rome's so-called plebeian or Aventine Triad, then was paired with her daughter Proserpina in what Romans described as "the Greek rites of Ceres". Her seven-day April festival of Cerealia included the popular Ludi Ceriales (Ceres' games). She was also honoured in the May lustratio of the fields at the Ambarvalia festival, at harvest-time, and during Roman marriages and funeral rites.

Ceres is the only one of Rome's many agricultural deities to be listed among the Dii Consentes, Rome's equivalent to the Twelve Olympians of Greek mythology. The Romans saw her as the counterpart of the Greek goddess Demeter, whose mythology was reinterpreted for Ceres in Roman art and literature.

Ceres was credited with the discovery of spelt wheat (Latin far), the yoking of oxen and ploughing, the sowing, protection and nourishing of the young seed, and the gift of agriculture to humankind; before this, it was said, man had subsisted on acorns, and wandered without settlement or laws. She had the power to fertilise, multiply and fructify plant and animal seed, and her laws and rites protected all activities of the agricultural cycle. In January, Ceres was offered spelt wheat and a pregnant sow, along with the earth-goddess Tellus at the movable Feriae Sementivae. This was almost certainly held before the annual sowing of grain. The divine portion of sacrifice was the entrails (exta) presented in an earthenware pot (olla).
In a rural context, Cato the Elder describes the offer to Ceres of a porca praecidanea (a pig, offered before the sowing). Before the harvest, she was offered a propitiary grain sample (praemetium). Ovid tells that Ceres "is content with little, provided that her offerings are casta" (pure).
