Stars are an essential subject of Elvin culture and education.

Given that starlight is one of the Prime Sources, it's no surprise that elves spend a great deal of time mapping, naming, and studying the stars - even botting their light.

The Universe[]

For the Universe class at Foxfire, prodigies have to collect six Stars and find the seventh one while following the pattern the first six were in. Sir Astin assigned the stars in such a pattern that Sophie would find Elementine and collect Quintessence.

Unmapped Stars[]

There are 5 unmapped stars. In Everblaze, Sophie, Keefe, and Sandor light leap on the unmapped stars' light until they reach their destination to meet with the Black Swan. It is usually tiring and draining to use their light and can lead to light poisoning. The locations of the unmapped stars are only known by the Councillors, some members of the Black Swan, and Sophie Foster. Each unmapped star has a different type of quintessence with different properties.

Official Description[]

The "unmapped stars" are kept secret from all except the Council (and the former councillors). Knowing their locations is illegal - as is bottling their light. In fact most elves have never even heard of the star's names.

The reason for secrecy is that the light from the unmapped stars is actually quintessence - the highly volatile, potentially dangerous fifth element.

Each star's quintessence is a different color and texture and has unique qualities and capabilities. And understanding those differences may prove vital in the days ahead.

Which is likely why the Black Swan made sure their moonlark knew where to find every one of the unmapped stars. They've also had her leap with each of the stars' quintessences. What that knowledge might be used for is unclear - but given the connection between quintessence and the Neverseen's mysterious stellarlune project, it's likely to be significant.

Elementine[]

Marquiseire[]

  • Marquiseire glows with a rosy light. When used to light leap, it is a pink glittery beam of light. In Everblaze, Sophie, Keefe, and Sandor use the light from a bottle of Marquiseire's light to light leap. In Legacy, this star's quintessence is described as abrasive, good for when something needs to be broken down on a cellular level. It's also shimmery and reflective, making it the most versatile, although Mr. Forkle believes elves have only begun to scratch the surface of its potentials.

Phosforien[]

Lucilliant[]

  • Lucilliant glows with an icy light. In Everblaze, Sophie, Keefe, and Sandor use the light from a bottle of Lucilliant's light to light leap underground. In Legacy Lucilliant's quintessence is described as the most balanced, cold and dark. It's valuable when something needs to be preserved.

Candesia[]

  • Candesia allows elves to light leap underwater. It has a dull, smoky glow and is very pale. In Everblaze, Sophie, Keefe, and Sandor use the light from a bottle of Candesia's light to light leap underwater. In Legacy, its explained that Candesia's quintessence is the weakest of the five, described as smokey and sluggish, making it the safest. It's often used for subtle shifts and changes, although there are no concrete examples.

Name Description What Quintesence Ability
Elementine Silvery light. Least stable, but most powerful from of quintessence Used to make frissyn
Marquiseire Shimmering, rosy light. Most versatile form of quintessence Breaks things down.
Phosforien Opalscent light. Quintessence is full of life and energy. Optional for DNA tests.
Lucilliant Icy light. Coldest, darkest quintessence. Can leap underground.
Candesia Pale light. Weakest, safest quintessence. Can leap underwater.

Projects[]

Dex had Amaranthis, Rubini, Orroro, Azulejo, Cobretola, Indigeen, and Zelenie, which was from the color spectrum.

Sophie had Argento, Auriferria, Pennisi, Merkariron, Styggis, Achromian and she chose Elementine as the seventh. Her pattern was metals, but when she plotted the mapped stars on the map, the stars formed two lines pointing to Elementine. Sir Astin, who was secretly Mr. Forkle, said she should have bottled something bronze or brass instead of Elementine. However, her list was created by the Black Swan, so the group wanted her to find Elementine.

Human Constellations[]

Cygnus (the swan) is created by Aquello, Fushaire, Rosine, Grisenna, Sapphilene, Scarletina, Nievello, Gildere, and Peacerre.

Light Leaping[]

In Everblaze, Sandor, Keefe, and Sophie light leap on the uncharted stars' light until they reach their destination to meet with the Black Swan. One can leap through solid objects and one can leap underwater, but there were many other ones too.
