Zhalya Mearyn, also known by their Trollian  handle caffeinatedComposer , is a Seer  of Light  and a fuchsia blood  Troll . Their extended zodiac  sign is Pipia, Sign of the Inquiring .  Their horns are coral, that grew around and deformed what otherwise would have been traditionally shaped fuchsia blood horns, and eventually became a symbiote.


"Zhalya" (IPA : /'zal.ja/) comes from a Shinajhon Næçmarö name born by a Queen of the Næçmar land of Llanajha

"Mearyn" (IPA : /mε.'ar.ɪn/) means "of many bloods" in Verelyon, from "mear", meaning "blood".  

The English pronunciation that Zhalya uses is /'zæl.jə 'mɛə̯ɹ.ɪn/ (ZAL-yə MAIR-in).  


Zhalya was not born on Alternia  but on a planet conquered by the Alternian Empire  under the rule of The Condesce . As a fuchsia blood , they are part of the Nautical Aristocracy. 

Zhalya has short dark hair with an undercut, has an eyebrow and ear piercings, and wears a silver ring on the right index finger. They're 1.83m tall (about 6ft) without the horns, which are about 1m long (around 3.3ft), which makes them about 2,83m tall in total (or 9.3ft).

Zhalya used to be one of the Heiresses to the Alternian Throne, but shunned the title very early on.

Zhalya's strife specibus is bladekind. They primarily use three knives: Metsem (IPA : /'mε.tsεm/, meaning "Night" in Aśna), Kvalian (IPA : /'kva.ljan/, meaning "Splinter" in Shinajhon Næçmarö), and a kukri named Kālī (IPA : /kɑːliː/, from Sanskrit "kālī", feminine form of kālā, “black” ). 

Before entering the Medium , Zhalya died under mysterious circumstances, leaving a scar across their left eye. Saenor Tulsim , their session's jade blood  and former matesprit , revived them as a rainbow drinker . Upon entering, Zhalya arrives on their planet , the Land of Mushrooms and Prisms (LOMAP)


Land of Mushrooms and Prisms (LOMAP), Zhalya's planet in the medium (art by Mirima:


Zhalya is the host of a system (@chaoticAsymmetry [CA]) with three other headmates: 

Name Handle Sign Lunar Sway Caste Classpect Colour Symbol
Zhalya Mearyn @caffeinatedComposer [CC] Pipia, Sign of the Inquiring Derse Fuchsia Seer of Light #B53389 or #66023C Moon crescent
Sekmet Estrif @cynicalAntipathy [CA] Aquiphorn, Sign of the Revolting Cogniset Violet Witch of Rage #B57EDC Fire
Tsaira Kayyal @astuteTempest [AT] Gemsca, Sign of the Discerning Asthesta Gold Mage of Life #FFD700 Five-pointed Star
Arwain Enoras @tactfulAcuity [TA] Virra, Sign of the Sage Prospit Jade Seer of Mind #00A86B Eye

The handles' initials form the sequence C(C>C)(A>A)(T>T)A which, when getting rid of the letters in the middle, gives CA aka the system's handle's initials.

The system uses the Extended Extended Zodiac, with four moons instead two, as used in Eternal Respite.

Session PlayersEdit

Zhalya's session had 12 players. Not including themself, they were: 


Typing StyleEdit

Zhalya's typing quirk uses capitalisation and punctuation.  They replace: 

  • "h" by ")("
  • "E" by "-E"
  • "s" by "5" (as a nod to their birthdate being 05/05 and also their system being comprised of five headmates)
  • "q" by "?" (as a reference to their extended zodiac sign being the Sign of the Inquiring )
  • capital "W" by "VV"
  • "5" (the digit) by "five" (only when it may cause confusion)

They also use smilies that have a tiara and goggles, like "38)", and rarely use fish and nautical puns.  They sometimes use emoticons that use some sort of "v" shape, like ":>", as a nod the "s" being a "5", since "5" in Roman numerals is "V".  Whenever they use several punctuation signs, it is usually five of them (an ellipsis would be "....." instead of "...").  Zhalya cusses a lot but says "vuck" as "5ome 5ort of ironic 5elf-cen5or5)(ip".  Zhalya used to type in fuchsia (web colour) but now uses another shade of fuchsia called fandango . 


  • Zhalya entered the Medium at the age of 10 sweeps (22 Earth years). 
  • It is known for certain that their ancestor , Her Abstruse Calamity, is still alive despite the Condesce ruling the Alternian Empire . It is not known, however, where she is hiding. 
  • Zhalya is terrified of their dancestor .  
  • They use fish and nautifcal puns only to reveal that they are being mischievous. 
  • Just like Feferi , Zhalya doesn't seem to feel the urge to murder other fuchsia bloods . On the contrary, they seem to instantly feel fond of them. 
  • Zhalya seems to instantly and unexplicably distrust indigo and purple bloods , despite acknowledging themself on several occasions that "Narka5 i5 actually pretty c)(ill". 
  • They really don't like clowns.  
  • Their denizen was Cetus , the denizen of Rose Lalonde and Vriska Serket − two Heroes of Light
  • Their lusus , Gl'bgolyb , was transferred from their home planet to Alternia to become Feferi 's lusus after their first death. 
  • Zhalya is the second Heiress ever to not have been culled after coming of age, not only due to them having shunned the title but also doing so as a rainbow drinker after their first death. The first one was Zephra , whose escape's circumstances are still unknown. 
  • Zhalya is a trans, non-binary, stone butch lesbian. 
  • They are a music producer/composer. Their main instruments are guitar, bass, and the piano. 
  • They are very interested in languages and linguistics.
  • The mushrooms on Zhalya's planet, are Tricholoma , a genus from the order Agaricales , also known as "gilled mushrooms". As such they are both a reference to their blood colour . Prisms refract Light , Zhalya's aspect. The acronym of the planet's name (LOMAP) is also a nod to Zhalya being a Light player; maps being associated with treasure hunts and thus, indirectly, pirates, which in Homestuck is associated with Vriska Serket , another Light player. 
  • Zhalya is left-handed. 
  • They are a strong type one
  • Although they describe Nataya as being their current matesprit , Zhalya has stated several times in their current life that, "de5pite bein a literal troll , I don't really do ?uadrant5 anymore". It seems their rebirth in this life came with a profound disconnection to most aspects of troll culture in them, and as such, matespritship cannot accurately describe this relationship's dynamic. Zhalya has stated on one occasion that they don't "wanna be a mate5prit , I wanna be a butc)(". 
  • Even though their system is called chaoticAsymmetry, Zhalya has started to half-jokingly refer to it as "The Bebop" in reference to Cowboy Bebop, due to the Bebop's crew consisting of four members (as the current system does) and the similarities mostly between Zhalya and Spike Spiegel and Tsaira and Edward. Arwain and Sekmet can be understood as respectively being Jet and Faye in only some aspects, but not strictly.  
  • Zhalya and Tsaira's birthdate is May 5th. 
  • Sekmet's birthdate is August 15th. 
  • Arwain's birthdate is September 5th.
