I am the consequences!

Warning! This page contains spoilers from recently released chapters. Proceed with caution and acid jars.

Ceria Springwalker is a half-Elf [Arctic Cryomancer] and captain of the Horns of Hammerad.


Ceria has dirty blonde hair,[1] pointed ears, pale yellow eyes, and skin that is subtly more vibrant than humans'.[2] In the aftermath of the fight against the Crelers Ceria's eyes turned winter-pale, mixed with faint blue and grey with something swirling in their depths.[3]

She lost all the skin down past her wrist on her right hand. What is left is just white bone. The parts that connect to her healthy arm are blackened, almost like frostbite.[4]

When Ceria first appeared she was wearing a dark blue set of robes embroidered with golden glowing sigils around the hem and edges of the cloth.[2]

Ceria doesn't appear to be overly tall compared to several other people, having been described to be shorter than Pisces,[5] Yvlon,[6] Ryoka,[7] and Falene.[8]

Ceria is the opposite of the refined image of half-Elves that most people have: she's a lazy glutton with bad table manners and a distinct lack of dignity or refinement. Ceria is not a social person - while she has friends, she does not make more easily, having grown up mostly alone.[10] This can be attributed in part to her near immortality, as the people around her change and die while she stays the same. This also causes her to feel old and young at once.[11] She can be surprisingly resolute in a task, evident when she was able to melt Illphres's ice by rubbing it with a bag of salt all night. She is very upfront and doesn't hide who she is. Similar to most adventurers, she possesses a reckless side.

Under the effect of the Putrid One's circlet, Ceria does not possess morality, though her mind is far sharper than it usually is. She is not bothered by gruesome scenes or murder. However, she is still able to differentiate between right and wrong.[12]


Ceria grew up in Terandria in The Edwivil Forest.[13] Ceria had matured to her adult body when she was in her twenties, but puberty had still hit her hard. She’d spent ten years dealing with the worst of hormonal imbalances, uncontrolled magical outbursts and the like.[14] When she was still a child, her grandmother died. After nobody in the village had realized that she had died for five months, Ceria became disillusioned with half-elf society, burned down her house, and left.[15] Not knowing how to properly fend for herself Ceria was forced to steal and scrounge for food, almost starving on multiple occasions and developing a taste for insects. She was not on Izril during the Antinium Wars,[14] and had never seen a Gnoll in person until she later traveled there.[16]

When she was 58 years old (seven years ago) and still a Bronze-rank adventurer, she started attending Wistram Academy together with Pisces.[17] While the two were initially friends, their relationship would sour after she and all of Wistram found out that he was a [Necromancer]. She became the apprentice of a [Cryomancer], Illphres, however, Illphres would later be killed attempting Zelkyr's test of battling Cognita and four other powerful golems. Subsequently, after Pisces inadvertently unleashed undead in the school after breaking into Archmage Nekhret's tomb, Ceria defended Pisces in a trial, which led the two to be expelled from Wistram. However, as they left, they were personally recognized as a Wistram graduates by Cognita despite not having completed their schooling.[18] After arriving on Izril, Ceria resumed her adventuring career, joining the Horns of Hammerad.[19]


Ceria enters the Wandering Inn storyline as a mage member of the Horns of Hammerad. She is one of the more experienced members, but refuses to be vice-captain because she doesn't like the logistical work. That is the reason why Calruz has Gerial in that position.[19] She is very helpful towards Ryoka[2] and helps the city runner to explore her innate magic[20] until Ryoka challenges Calruz and punches Ceria in a fit of rage. Then, Ceria turns away from Ryoka with a stern warning.[21]

During the disastrous expedition into the Ruins of Liscor, Ceria and Olesm manage to survive in a stone coffin while the undead rampage moves towards Liscor. Her arm atrophies to skeletal remains in her attempt to stop Skinner. They are eventually rescued by Erin, Ryoka and Pisces, and Ceria stays at the Wandering Inn afterwards. She reforms the Horns of Hammerad with her as the captain and the only old member, but convinces Yvlon Byres, Pisces and Ksmvr to join her.[14]

Under her as a captain, the Horns of Hammerad discover a new location in the Ruins of Albez and get out with a considerable treasure, although only a fracture of what had been guarded by a Flame Golem.[6] Ryoka brings the looted items to Invrisil to get them identified, and returns with one item sold for considerable magical gear that should bring the reformed Horns to Gold Rank. However, the adventuring guilds require proof that the Horns are at Gold level. They do several more quests mostly around Liscor and Esthelm, but the group stagnates somewhat and is regularly outdone by the Gold Rank teams which frequent the Wandering Inn.

Ceria was captured during the Raskghar attacks, and spent several days as their captive, attempting to subvert them to little success. At the time of the final assault on the Raskghar camp, she was able to convince Calruz to join her in fighting against his acquired tribe of monsters once it is clear they have lost to the combined forces invading the dungeon.

Eventually, Erin gets the Pallassian mage Grimalkin to evaluate the Horns of Hammerad. The [Sinew Magus] spells out for Ceria that despite being one of the more powerful members of the Horns, she has been complacent in her training and lacking in physical acumen; and he advises a rigorous training regimen for her, consisting of a healthy diet and sessions submerged in a boiling bath in order to strengthen her ice magic. She credits the training with allowing her the skills and fitness to survive and defeat an Adult Creler at the Bloodfields.

Powers and Abilities[]

Near the beginning of the story, Ceria was able to cast Tier 3 magic at best. At that time, it was possible for her to use Tier 4 spells, but she’d need a spellbook and weeks—maybe months to learn the spell at her level.[22] In 1.01H, Ceria mentioned that she had managed to learn over 50 spells, but mostly used [Ice Spike], as her wand contained the spell, which allowed her to cast it much faster than her other ones.[23] Since then, Ceria's magical prowess has increased markedly, along with her levels and Skills. Notably, while wearing the Putrid One's circlet, she was able to learn four spells in a very short span of time.

She discovered that she can cast with her skeletal hand simultaneously the [Ice Shard] spell among each finger.[14]

Being a Half-Elf, Ceria is able to channel mana better than the other races can.[24]

Ceria's relationship with Pisces is long and complex. They first meet on the boat to Wistram Academy, where Pisces is one of the few people who does not take immediate prejudice to Ceria's half-elf nature.[17] During their time at Wistram, the two grow very close, studying together and helping each other to gain magical abilities. However, the revelation of Pisces' [Necromancer] class alienates Ceria, and she stops talking to him for some time. Even then, she is still one of the only people in all of Wistram willing to have any kind of discussions with Pisces, and stands up for Pisces during his trial.[18]

After becoming an adventurer, Ceria still finds ways to contact Pisces when needed. She reaches out to Pisces to heal Ryoka's leg after it is broken, and they meet at the inn for the operation. During their meeting, Pisces notes that they have not met for some amount of time - possibly not since they had both left Wistram.[34]

The two meet again when the Horns of Hammerad return to Liscor to challenge the dungeon, unsuccessfully. Ceria and Olesm are the only survivors, and Ceria contacts Pisces using an old form of messaging that the two developed during their time at Wistram. Pisces gathers a group of adventurers and rescue Ceria.

After Ceria recovers, she reforms the Horns with Pisces, Yvlon Byres, and Ksmvr. During her time as captain, she frequently comes in conflicts with Pisces, but she is also the one who understands the most about Pisces and his background.
