Cirava Hermod is an Alternian troll living during the time period of Hiveswap and Hiveswap Friendsim. Cirava was first revealed during the Hiveswap Troll Call event alongside Tagora Gorjek on January 24th, 2018. Their bullet points were "they shouldn't be alive", "MOISTUREWAVE ✌️ AESTHETIC", and "¯\_(ツ)_/¯" with added troll horns. Cirava later was featured in Hiveswap Friendship Simulator: Volume Two alongside Amisia Erdehn. They were designed by Shelby.
Cīvaras are religious robes that Buddhist monks wear. Hermod is a minor Norse god of war. He rode to the underworld on Odin's eight-legged horse (Sleipnir) to (unsuccessfully) beg for his brother (Baldr) to be revived.
Cirava is a popular Moisturewave music streamer. While the MSPA Reader is stumbling on the streets trying to make more friends, they come across Cirava. They ask if the player is an alien, and once they agree the comment that the should not be out in the streets because drones will come for them. The player explains that they are looking for more friends, and Cirava is moved by their plight. Although it is cull-risky, Cirava invites them to their hive to hide out for a little while. The player looks around their hive and is astounded by their batshit crazy decor. Cirava talks about how they built their hive on their own, trying to get it to look as great as possible so their fans don't think they live in a dump and spend their days being depressed and crying. After a long pause, they ask the player if they like moisturewave. This splits into two options you can pick
If the player responds with "What the fuck is a moisturewave?" Cirava will say that they aren't sure if you two can be friends because they can't describe moisturewave, you just have to get it. The contemplate you for a moment, then decide you aren't worth their time and throw you out.
If the player asks Cirava to help out with their look, Cirava will be excited and go back and forth between all their different fashion items and accessories. They will then dress the player up to like just like them, and calls their look iconic. The two take some selfies together, and the player gets overwhelmingly popular. Cirava comments that at that rate, they'll be even more popular than them. The player tries to reassure them that that will never happen, and that all they want is friendship.
Cirava goes on about how that's what their "friends" said to them and how highbloods are always stealing the content they make and getting more fame and recognition for it than Cirava. They brush it all off with saying that it's chill and the player worries about their behavior, and their phone pings with many different notifications for the player. They ask the player what the hell they did, and in response they claim they didn't do anything. Cirava becomes overwhelmed with jealousy and decides to write a callout post for the MSPA Reader. The player is horrified, and runs out of Cirava's hive as soon and come across a conviniently placed stump. They reach inside and point the gun to their head, comitting suicide.
If the player decides to choose their own look, Cirava will leave them alone so they can dress how they want. The player, not knowing what's hip and cool with the Alternian youth, decides to pick some random accessories out of Cirava's closet to try and achieve the moisturewave aesthetic. After they are done with their look and show Cirava, they will be impressed by their outfit and says that this shit is transcendant and they take some selfies together. Cirava points out all the comments being left about the player on their selfie pages, most of them about their relationship status. They tell them not to go for it, because their followers are freaks, and then decide that the both of you should chill out and listen to some beats. Cirava asks the player if they vape and tells them about their juicy rig downstairs.
Cirava and the MSPA Reader go downstairs and the player watches as Cirava vapes through their bug-like vape rig. Cirava passes it to them, teaching them how to vape. The player inhales a ton of the juice in it until Cirava tells them they can let go. After letting go, Cirava tells them about how much chiller this day was than they had expected, and calls them their best friend for life. They then go on about how difficult it is to be popular online, especially as a lowblood. They used to get into a lot of fights with highbloods on chittr before things got out of hand. They started getting reported as a much more powerful psionic than they actually are so they couldn't keep up with their streams. Their friends then turned on them so they wouldn't be targeted next. Cirava then decided to take matters into their own hands and ripped out their own eye so they wouldn't be used as a battery. Since then they've stayed under the radar and stopped talking online so no one could take advantage of them. They then say that because of this, they no longer had any friends. Well, until you.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Cirava's "moisturewave" interest is a play on the music genre Vaporwave, in which music is slowed down. "Moisturewave" suggests vaporwave but condensed, as moisture is condensed vapor. They appeared to based off of vaporwave and vaping culture. They also appear to have a bong in their hive, suggesting they smoke an Alternian equivalent to marijuana. They seem to have a serious eye injury, probably tying into the fact that they "shouldn't be alive". The actual injury is hidden by their triangular eye-patch. They have a very chaotic wardrobe, mirroring the 90's neon style. Their left eye is bright neon green, matching their wristband. The other eye could have been bright pink.
- Cirava's sign is Gemrius, sign of the Perceptive, making them a potential Hero of Hope and Derse Dreamer
- There is giant wasp's nest on the ceiling of their hive, suggesting that their lusus is a wasp.
- Both Poinko (Hiveswap crew member) and Cohen (Hiveswap lead writer) have confirmed that Cirava is nonbinary.
- Cirava's theme was originally "M O I S T", but the name became corrupted, turning to boxes. It was then decided that it should remain that way.
- It is unclear on which side Cirava's eyepatch is supposed to be. It's on the left side on their card, on the right side on the tracker (where all sprites are flipped to face the same way), but on the left side in the game.
