Owner Horse Description
Balvala
Demon of Bad Weather.
2021 Titan Competition Contestant

Back Story
The lone mare, Nova, knew that the time had come.

She had come to long for the tightness and discomfort through her midsection to dissipate like the high desert landscape surrounding her longed for rain. Judging by the clouds gathering in the sky above her, and the pulsing in her body neither one would have to wait long for their wish to be fulfilled. When she could stand it no more, she laid down beside a rocky outcropping and prepared herself for what was about to come.
Nova had been a mother before. She had been a mate to a noble stallion-one who bore an old and revered bloodline.
Now she was alone. As a foal she had been told that she was born from greatness to be the greatness that this world needed. That the blood of the Titan Illume flowed through her and that his light would illuminate her path. But as she had matured she felt that something was separating her from that light. Perhaps a curse or a bad omen was looming over her head like a cloud, sheltering her from that supposed destiny. As she heaved a new life into the world, the images of her herd's destruction flashed through her mind. Her fault. Now all she had left to show for it was this baby. As her foal took his first breath, a rain drop hit Nova's nose, and the sound of thunder cracked in her ear. She hadn't seen rain in a very, very long time.

"Balvala." The mare whispered, looking first at her new offspring and then at her surroundings. "You have brought bad weather."



The silver colt was unafraid of the high winds, and dark skies.

He knew that this was his doing.

Balvala did not view himself as a savior, but felt entitled to praise, for he had brought water and therefore life to the land he called home-at least that is what his mother had told him. His mother had told him many things. He knew that his ancestor, Illume, had once sought out good for this place. He knew that the good was gone, washed away by his storms. He knew that whatever curse had been placed on his pregnant mother long ago had transferred to him when he was unleashed on to the world- That the curse made him evil. The black stallion that came to him in his dreams had confirmed this. He had not ever said it out loud though. Would that make it seem real?

"Mother, do you think that I am a Titan?"

The gray mare paused ahead of him, and looked over her shoulder. She didn't have to look down at her offspring anymore, he was almost taller than her now. Nova smiled softly, remembering a colt smaller than this one begging to hear more about the legends of the great Titans, just as she had pleaded to her own dam recite the tales when she was young. The mare seldom had reminders of her son behaving like a normal foal. Balvala had always been so mature and unfazed. So unnervingly disconnected that sometimes she wondered if her own presence even mattered to him. Originally she had attributed it to their roaming lifestyle. The pair had never stayed with another group of horses for more than a few days. He had learned everything he needed to know about life from her, and her alone. He had seldom had a playmate and seemingly preferred the company of older horses. Nova feared that if others noticed her son's odd behaviors that harm would come to him. The way the wind swirled around him, and not against him. The way that snow fell out of his way, as if out of respect. But now it was evident that he was powerful. It was evident that some terrible and twisted version of Illume lived inside of him. The land had been good for so long, her own past was a testimony that bad things could happen, but how could there be outright evil?

Was it her fault?

A rain drop hit Nova's nose, and thunder cracked in her ear. She had grown accustomed to the rain over time. Living alongside Balvala how could she not?

"Balvala, you've brought bad weather. I don't know of another horse that could do that."

Had raising an evil Titan been the curse all along? Now that he was aware had the curse been lifted from her entirely?

"Go." A sinister voice whispered into her mind.

She finally felt at peace. She didn't need to answer her son directly. Lightning cracked again, the whole sky lit up, and then the mare was gone.

The lone stallion, Balvala, knew that the time had come.

How do I Enter and Remove from Jumpoffs:
Jumpoffs are a great way to earn PonyBucks. To enter or remove a horse from jumpoffs just click on the horse name and select the Jumpoff ON/OFF slider at the top of the horse profile page. Your horse will continue to compete automatically in Jumpoffs until you remove it, the horse is sold, the horse is in foal, or the horse is retired. Horses with Jumpoff selected will automatically be entered in jumpoffs each day and will also be available for other member to challenge.

How can I improve My Horses Performance:
The following attributes play a role in a horses jumpoff performance: Training Level, Age, Strength, Loyalty, Conformation, Jumpoff Experience, Breed Percentage, Feed Type, Items, Pedigree, DNA, Registry Memberships and associated Registry Ratings.

How do I breed my horse:
A breed link will display above for any unretired Stallion 3 years or older that has a stud fee set.  If the Stallion has no Stud Fee set then you can't breed to the horse.  All Stud Fees collected will be credited to the Stallion owners account.  Foals are born 3 to 5 days after breeding.  Most of the stallion and mares traits will be transferred to the new foal.

Horse Rank:
Horse ranking is determined by the horses jumpoff win/loss ratio over the past 7 days. This is also weighted agaist the number of jumpoffs entered. For example, a horse with a 30-2 win/loss record over the past 7 days will rank better than a horse with a 5-1 win/loss record. A horse rank of 1 is the top horse on Ponybox.

Training Level:
Training is important for good jump performance.  Horses age 2 and over are automatically trained to your barns maximum training ability for the specific breed.  Typically horses increase 1 level per horse year.  The first number in the training level the specific horses training level and the second number is your barns maximum training ability for that breed (2/8).  Horses in training will show a "T" icon next to their name.  If your horse does not have this icon then it is not actively being trained due to being in foal, under the age of 2, or retired.

Loyalty:
Loyalty is how loyal the horse is to its owner.  A horses loyalty will increase the longer you own it and take care of it.  Placing your horse for sale or selling the horse will decrease its loyalty. Horse loyalty plays a significant role in how well a horse jumps.

Strength:
Strength is the total strength of the horse with 100% representing the horses full strength.  Horse stregth will increase slightly with each jumpoff and also each night of rest.  Horses not active in jumpoffs will max out at about 80% strength  When a horse is bred, both the Mare and Stallion will realize an effect on strength. A Mare can't breed if strength goes below 20%.

Feed Type:
Feed Type is the type of feed the horse is receiving.  If no performance feed is being fed to the horse then it will default it Pasture Feed. Horse feed plays a significant role in how well a horse jumps.

Head & Neck, Chest & Underline:
These features represent the horses conformation on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 representing poor conformation and 10 representing perfect conformation. Horse conformation plays a significant role in how well a horse jumps.

Height:
How you care for your horse in regards to feed, strength and loyalty can effect how well your horse grows in its first 9 years of life.  These first nine years of growth will also have some effect on foal birth height over multiple generations.  Breeding a horse too early can lead to smaller foals.  How healthy a foal is in regards to expected height for the breed can impact jumpoff performmance later in life.

Breed Restriction:
If a Breed Restriction has been placed on the horse then only the barn that placed the breed restriction can breed the horse.

DNA Mod:
Modifications to the horses DNA that have a neutral, negative or positive effect on the horses performance and breeding.  A DNA Mod will sometimes pass down to foals of the Dam or Sire.  Once a horse contracts a DNA Mod, it will always be a carrier in either a passive or active state.  Passive DNA mods have no effect on the horse but can be transferred to foals in an active state.
