Physical Description

Their skin is grey, darkest around their chest and lightest around their hands and feet. Their eyes are red, and they are covered in a multitude of scars, small and large. On the back of their calves are a crest of white feathers, and on their back are two stubs, capped with metal to prevent their wings from growing back. While emoza are a naturally thin species, Fern is almost distressingly so. This is often hidden beneath their baggy, flowy clothes. Fern wears loose clothing such as skirts, cloaks, and dresses in cool or neutral colors. They dislike having to wear skin-tight or revealing clothes and will always cover their back, and oftentimes their legs as well.

No matter where they go, they constantly wear a long red, yellow, and orange scarf. Nothing will convince them to part with it. Fern can sometimes be seen fiddling with this scarf when nervous or idle.


One of the first things many people will notice upon meeting Fern is their tone. It is flat at nearly all times, despite their expressions being able to show emotion just fine. This is something out of their control, a fact Fern will make clear when asked to be more expressive. If they feel it's unclear, Fern will specify if something they said is supposed to be a question, a joke, or sarcastic.

Fern demonstrates a lack of impulse control, leading them to push things off of surfaces, hand people random objects, eat things just for the sake of it, and more. These things vary from perfectly harmless, such as bits of candy, to worryingly dangerous, such as glass. When asked to stop, they will act apologetic and attempt to follow through, but have a hard time doing so.

As much as Fern shows a willingness to eat possibly dangerous things, they struggle with eating regularly and will resort to cookies if they can't bring themselves to eat anything else. Whenever possible, they will have cookies with them. Fern carries with them a sketchbook, in which they draw still life of plants. It is no surprise that they chose their name to be Fern when they draw them so often. They are shy about showing others their work and deny any praise given to them.

When Fern grows attached to people, they will follow them whenever possible and experience separation anxiety when forced to part with them. They struggle to express their appreciation for it, but love to be given physical affection by these people. However, they are prone to immediately becoming panicked if their back is touched without warning.

The amount of attachment they can show is concerning, as they will sacrifice their own comfort and health in order to assure others. Fern will even fight for or injure themselves for the people they like. This could be explained as their attempt to overcompensate the 'giving' part in relationships, afraid that their companion may decide to abandon them if they're not devoted enough. Conversely, Fern may grow so afraid of betrayal that they completely drop the person before it happens, running away and directly destroying their relationships to avoid being hurt.

Despite Fern's tendency to be deathly loyal to others, they are excessively paranoid of practically everybody. Though they tend not to admit it, Fern suspects everyone around them to be plotting against them. This suspicion can come in the form of sabotage, murder, simple injury, or being in league with Alula, the current queen of Chyta. They are especially convinced that Alula intends to harm them. Even when indisputable evidence disproves ill intentions, they will continue to express suspicion and unease.

It is possible for Fern to be provoked into attacking even when there is no actual danger. When already in an anxious state, an intimidating individual making some badly phrased remarks can be swung at with a knife. In these events, Fern does not aim to kill but to startle and injure enough so that they can run away. Killing is only the case when they think they've been backed into a corner with no way out.


Fern's name used to be Plume Celandine. However, Fern has legally changed it since the passing of the events described in this section and refuses to answer to that name when called.

Fern was adopted from Chyta's adoption system, just like their four other siblings. Their two parents were the previous monarch, Vane, and her husband, Calamus. In order to oldest to youngest, the five children were Book, Valda, Apus, Fern, and Alula. Of these family members, only two are alive to this day. Calamus and Alula, who is only a few months younger than Fern. When asked about Book's strange name, only Alula delicately shared that her father wasn't the most talented at naming.

Apus was the first of the siblings to die, poisoned at mealtime. Despite interrogation of the staff and every person who could possibly have access to his food, no leads were found. It was a well-known fact he was allergic to spices, and as such the kitchen staff would give his food the utmost attention. Yet somehow, this slipped by them. Book was killed while he was sleeping. At first Valda was believed to be the culprit, as she had visited him an hour before he had gone to sleep, and the two were known to have a passionate sibling rivalry. Book's murder had not even been disguised as an accident, and it blatantly obvious he had been murdered. The weapon was found hidden within Valda's belongings, and she was put on trial and jailed. However, during her sentence it was believed she committed suicide. Despite the convincing staging of this event, it was later known to be false.

With their royalty dropping dead in the span of a single year, the people of Chyta were buzzing with anxiety. The royal family was well-known and beloved by their people, and to see three of the queen's children die made their hearts grow heavy and wary. Full of anxiety, they searched for the culprit the best they could, going over what they had previously thought was true. It was then that Alula begged her words to be heard that there was momentary peace. Tearfully, she admitted to the public that Fern was behind the deaths of her siblings. The only reason she had not spoken before was that she was afraid to be next, but at this point, justice meant more than her safety. This came as an extraordinary shock. The bubbly, happy child who got in trouble for eating things they shouldn't? A conniving murderer? Alula gave an answer for every question. She said that Fern had trusted her as their right hand, believing she would be too scared to blow their cover. Why would the youngest and brightest of the five betray her sibling, even if they were a murderer?

In light of this news, Chyta was whipped into a frenzy. Fern was held on trial. With a first hand account, three murders, outstanding evidence, and no other leads, there were few other possibilities. At the age of thirty-four*, Fern was promptly executed** and subsequently banished from the planet.

Now left to wander space, Fern is convinced that the queen is tracking them throughout the universe and is planning to kill them. They often believe that complete strangers are working for her and are about to harm them, even with next to no evidence. An interview with Alula has confirmed that no actions concerning Fern have taken place since their exile, and there are no plans for any. Despite this, nothing can successfully convince Fern otherwise for more than a little while.

As a recent part of history, Fern has a chance of being recognized, but this only tends to occur with those who have looked into their execution for one reason or the other, and never the common passerby.

*Thirty is when an emoza reaches physical maturity, but culturally they are not seen as adults until fifty.

**The use of 'execution' refers to the vast importance emoza place on their wings. To lose them is equivalent to death, and as such having their wings severed is considered a type of death sentence.




• They have been known to accept cookies of nearly any kind. Fern's favorite is chocolate chip.

• Upon any mention of royalty, Fern is set on edge and becomes much more careful in their wording. They show a special hatred towards Alula Celandine.

• Should someone call them by the name Plume, they will immediately act hostile towards the person who did so.
