Six years ago, an unimaginable horror known as Tirek came to Equestria. His power was nigh impossible, requiring the Elements, the Lovers and the Alicorns all to pour their very souls into holding him. In their absence, Prince Blueblood took the crown. But, Blueblood's reign is simply a mask for the Guard's dictatorship, while rebels cling to the idea of a free republic and strange cults tout the value of freedom from any governance. With all this, why would anypony spare a thought for the comet that filled the night sky for weeks before falling?

<Chiyo was born from the matrimony of an Earth Pony named Silver Mist and a Silver Dragon named Argenta. Argenta was the proud mother of this very special faun, but sadly, due to age and complications arising from conceiving her faun, she passed away just as she saw her dear faun peek out from the shelling of its egg. In the cold mountains far north of Equestria, the widowed stallion carried his new babe through the snow and ice down to the bastion of ponydom known as Canterlot. Ey would have almost died then and there, but thanks to eir father's warm coat and some careful medical care by Canterlot doctors, Chiyo made a timely recover, and was on her feet in a few weeks.
In the first century of eir childhood, Chiyo enjoyed eirself about as well as any other foal or faun you would have ever met. However, in time, she discovered the harsh truth of being a Kirin; Living for literally centuries meant you'd be losing friends as often as you would get them, your family notwithstanding. While for a time, this struck the little hermaphrodite with grief, ey eventually found a way to cope, and soon reasoned to herself that she would make friends of equal standing to eir, so that ey might have more substantial companionship. But, for the time, ey was glad to have friends that she could trust, even if they were to be sadly short-lived.>
<Around the time ey hit the tender age of 350, Chiyo ended up in the compassionate claws of a Kirin family while living in a local orphanage in Canterlot. The family ey was adopted into was of the third generation of Kirin, better known as the pure-blooded Kirin. Eir mother and father were an Arcane Kirin and an Earth Kirin respectively, and ey was blessed (or occasionally in eir own view, cursed) with being in the same home as two precocious Sky Kirin. These two were Adam and Eve, and in combination with their odd names was their odd behavior. The dynamic duo seemed to take an immediate interest in their new sibling, often following eir constantly.
Eventually, ey had had enough of the constant snooping eir adoptive siblings were causing her, and fled for any direction that would get her away from eir obnoxious stalkers. Unfortunately for eir, ey had the bad luck to end up into the Everfree, and eir siblings were still hot on eir tail. After even further fleeing, eir two siblings ended up clinging for dear life onto a mysterious ravine in the Everfree. As ey tried eir hardest to save eir brother and sister from certain doom, ey heard a strange series of voices emanating from the epicenter of this great fissure in the fiendish forest, urging eir not to gaze into its maw. However, curiosity got the better of the young Kirin, and so ey payed a horrid price. As ey gazed into infinite darkness, what arose from the black would cause a noteworthy change in eir forever.
A gaggle of ghosts assaulted Chiyo's eyes, sending eir reeling back, eir two siblings still in her clutches. When ey finally had the courage to open her eyes again, she saw blackness. But this was not an infinite sea of black. Rather, in the ocean of obsidian, there stood lines of blue. It was then that ey discovered eir talent. While the spirits stole from eir the ability to perceive with her eyes the world natural, ey was blessed with a keen eye toward the supernatural! While eir eyes were blind to the rest of the world, ey could plainly see the lines and shines of life all around her. The energy of the trees and grass, and of the sun! Even her compatriots were in some extent visible to eir. And not only that, ey could see and feel the wandering souls around her. Now, eir eyes had become naked to the world beyond life, and as a badge of pride, their then shined a bright wisp upon eir flank as eir cutie mark.
Only for eir to realize that all of this was but a farce that had been long unbeknownst to her. She was, in reality, a changeling. As part of a last-ditch experiment to preserve her tribe, the queen placed a spell of binding upon her form, locking her into one general identity and mentality, disguising her as a Kirin while the queen hid as a crone of a Kirin mare, handing her off into the hooves of Silver Mist, hoping that one day, Chiyo would be able to find her way back home...>
