Description:
[b]Appearance:[/b] Free Form has a very slender frame. He stands at average about two feet above most ponies, almost reaching the size of the Deer of Equestia, as well as the Royal Princesses. He has faintly visible muscles, that look taut and compact within his frame, and although he has thinner muscles, they are very dense, and he fights far better than he would seem to. Peppered across Free Form's body are scars. They litter his body like a worn battlefield, each one telling it's own story of a fight won or lost. Moving up to his face, Free is know for caring a warm, compassionate look, caring eye, a smile known to warm the hearts of the innocent, and just that overall look of a pony that somepony might like, or perhaps love. He has a light grey beard, this is not shown in any of Free's art due to (my) laziness, but it is there, and his eyes are glow with the same color that his eyes are colored, a dark saturated amber with tiny sprinkles of white shining every so faintly. He has a messy, but well kept mane mixed with abyssal and greyish-blue, these colors also apply to his tail, which is kept in the same exact order as his mane. Moving down to his legs. Free has a steel leg that shines brilliantly in the sunlight as well as the moonlight. It's slightly larger than his left foreleg, which is made of flesh and bone, and this is due to the fact that the metal used to create his right foreleg is lighter than his actual body, so he had to spread out and use more metal to weight it correctly without causing him to lose balance.

[b]Personality:[/b] Free's personality over the years has changed, he's gone from being a sweet and innocent stallion, to a stone cold killer for the city of Riyadh as he finished his training in King Neighad's Policing College, to becoming a skittish soldier with severe PTSD as he left the Saddle Arabian Military ten years after the Hejaz Raid. It goes on and on just as somepony who's lived for over a hundred years would go. As of recently, facing his new position as King of Coristis, Free has been maturing as a diplomat, learning how to get what he wants, learning how to negotiate without putting himself or his subjects at risk. Free however keeps his respect or all life, as well as his thoughts on Honor, remaining as honorable as he possibly can as ruler of a nation.
Misc Information:
[b]Special Announcement:[/b] A lot of the stuff I used to make my profile page as large as it is partly because of the amazing minds of Shank and Master Plan Thank you two! Your profile designs are phenomenal!

[b]Second Announcement:[/b] To some of you, my profile might seem a little intimidating, and perhaps I may have designed it to be that way, but it really is a good read, and when you Roleplay with Free Form, it will let you in on a lot of stuff about him that will further your understanding of what exactly Free Form is, and why he does certain things he does. So if you ever get a moment, brew yourself some tea, get cozy in a warm blanket, or strip down naked if your living in South Carolina or something like that, and take an hour or so to read everything in my profile, I think your come out pleasantly surprised to find that it really isn't that bad of a read. ~ Free Form's Admin

[b]Rules[/b]
I should first let you all know everything that happens to Free Form stays canon, if you attack him, he will remember it. If he gains a wound capable of leaving a scar it will stay, though I most likely won't mention it. And yes, if you kill Free; he is dead, he won't come back and I will delete the account. I will not however let someone kill Free if they are impossibly strong, Free Form must be killed fair and square.

1. Let's keep OOC to a minimum. If you wish to speak to me, use IM.

2. Use proper grammar, the occasional mistake is alright, I tend to do it as well sometimes.

3. I like to stick with canon Equestria mixed with a bit of Arcano Magic and Steampunk.

4. Speaking of canon Equestria, I use a different map than most in terms of what Equestria and beyond looks like. All places in the show still exist even if they don't show up on the map.

5. I will not RP with Red and Black OC's or Alicorns aside from a few that actually interest me.

6. I mostly do Narrative, I expect at least more than two sentences from you in an RP.

7. ERP is allowed as long as it relates to the story of the Roleplay, well...most of the time anyway.

8. Free Form is single, feel free to flirt with him and try to capture his heart.

<p><br /><strong>Detailed History:</strong> Born in Sakakah, Saddle Arabia to Crimson Form and Silk Form in the year 1672, Azad Saadiq spent the first few years of his life at home living only with his mother. Learning the basics of living. At age six Free Form was accepted into the School of Magics for Gifted Shadhavars. For the first few years of school there, he excelled and was an all A student, this changed when he turned ten Free began developing issues, not attending school and other small things which led him to trouble. In 1684, tragedy struck when a massive Sandworm passed through the small village of Sakakah, it was during this time Free&rsquo;s mother was killed, as well as everyone else in the village leaving Free Form alone, scared for his life and unsure of what to do. Remembering his training, he used the sun and moon to help guide him to the mining village of Hedeb where Free then became an apprentice to a local blacksmith, who taught him how to shape metal, and which metals went well together along with several other thing which would prove to be useful later in life. Spending nearly five years with the blacksmith, one day Free came home to find that his mentor had passed away of natural causes, seeing himself doing things better than shaping metal for his whole life, Free paid his respects to the blacksmith, spreading his ashes in the Hejaz Mountains then head off towards Riyadh.</p>
<p>Once finally arriving in Riyadh, Free joined King Neighad&rsquo;s Policing College and began training as hard as he possibly could, little did Free know doing this would lead to an amazing discovery, but also lead him to several years of pain, and ending any chance of him truly regaining his old self back. In the year 1691, Free graduated from King Neighad&rsquo;s Policing College, receiving his rank as a Second Lieutenant in the Saddle Arabian Police Force, during this time Free would begin taking out petty criminals, and eventually in 1693, start searching for the criminal known as &lsquo;Crossboned&rsquo; Joan. Two years later in 1695, Free Form successfully captured Joan and was asked to do the honors of executing her. After the execution Free Form was promoted to 1st Lieutenant for taking out the outlaw who previously had pillaged hundreds, if not thousands of towns and villages throughout the years. Free Form had three more years of small jobs, taking out petty criminals and defending against small rebellions before Crimson Form, the king of Saddle Arabia at the time declared war against the Diamond Dogs within the Hejaz Mountains. Free Form and thousands of other ponies were enlisted into the Saddle Arabian Military. Free Form was immediately promoted to Corporal for standing up to a superior officer who was against the war and tried to destroy the military rations that had been saved up. After a year of training for cave warfare, Free Form was given a small squadron to commandeer. The Ammon Squadron contained a very small amount of ponies, but they were elites, veterans of warfare, deadly vipers; striking from the shadows. The raid was beginning and Free Form was right in the middle of it all, two months later, after Free had finished his training, he was camped outside what would become known as the Well of Blood. The entrance to the caves within the Hejaz Mountain Range. For three years Free Form and his squadron fought, and within that time they managed to kill off a large majority of the Diamond Dogs, leaving very few left in Equestria sadly. With their morals weak, and their supplies nearly nonexistent the Ammon Squadron was killed, and their leader was taken hostage by the remaining Diamond Dogs. Free was questioned several times, and tortured each time he refused to answer their questions, eventually in the year 1704, Free was killed in action after an attempted escape when he was able to trick one of the gatekeepers into thinking he was sick. It was at this time that Free Form fell into the relaxing place known was the Medium where he met with a certain Manticore for the first time. Nothing at this point mattered to Free Form, he stayed within the rooms of the Medium for several days, discussing various topics with the reaper Manticore, learning everything there ever was to exist. Free being the greedy mortal he was asked for more knowledge, and the Manticore accepted, giving him a fate worse than death itself.</p>
<p>Thrown back into the Canine Clash in the year 1705, Free joins up with the Arvio Squadron and helps fight off the rest of the Diamond Dogs. Just that same year the Canine Clash ended, and Free finally got to go back home to the capital city of Saddle Arabia where something unexpected happened. The King of Saddle Arabia wished to speak with Free, unable to decline the offer Free spoke with King Crimson and accepted two medals given in his honor. The Hejaz Raid Medal and the Arabian Medal of Valor. As Free thanked King Crimson, he had yet another surprise awaiting him, once returning to his quarters, Free&rsquo;s commander once again promoted him, making him a Sergeant. Five years would pass of serving in the Arabian Military, and with each dragging year Free would find himself growing tired of all the fighting, and finally in 1710 Free Form officially retired from the Arabian Military with three more medals of Valor and a massive horde of supporters following his every step. Free would take advantage of his popularity and join Politics, marrying into the Mufti Family to become a Saddle Arabian Official just the same year. Five years of changes within Saddle Arabia happened. The economy was booming, ponies were thriving. And ponies altogether, poor, and rich were living in complete harmony. It was during this time that Free felt a strange need for adventure, to discover something amazing and add new things to his already popular list of names. In 1715 Free declared he would bring back items of great and holy value when he returned from the cold and harsh lands of the Echo, and in early January he set out reaching the cold and icy shores four months later. Nearly a year had past and the majority of his crew had died of starvation, the last eight stallion's had taken shelter inside of a small cavern. One night Free heard voices and followed them to a grand temple atop an icy cliff. Free climbed this cliff and allowed himself into the temple where he was greeted by a massive race of Hippogriffs. Free was terrified at first, but with the or soothing voices he quickly calmed down and took hold of the cursed crystal sword known as 'Cristallum Lux Orbisque'. They all made a deal and went their separate ways. Free went back to his crew, armed with his new weapon, Free lead his crew back to their ship and sailed back to Saddle Arabia. In the year 1717 Free and what was now only 3 crew members returned back home, exhausted and immediately bored Free never quite returned to his glory years in Saddle Arabia. And with each passing day the supporters who had loved Free so very much found their loyalty fading and the age of Free had come to an end.</p>
<p>In 1730 Free Form was arrested for murder of several members of multiple royal families, Free was labeled a traitor and found guilty of corruption and murder of royal families. Free Form pleaded for a fair trial after he discovered he was being used to cover for the true murders but it was no use. 3 months later in 1731 Free found himself and several other members of the Mufti Family imprisoned in Saddle Arabia&rsquo;s worst prison, &lsquo;Ulaysha Prison. For 8 years Free would suffer through massive beatings, painful tortures, and unethical means of interrogation, Free was broken over and over again until his eventual escape in 1739. Armed with a large rock that had come off of his cell wall. Free beat in the heads of hundreds of guards and helped other framed Mufti Family members escape. After discovering what had happened in &lsquo;Ulaysha Prison, King Crimson labeled Free Form as an outlaw and put a massive bounty on his head. In the year 1746 Free Form celebrated his 74th birthday in a small fishing ship just a day before arriving in Equestria. The first thing Free did was go to a small Pub and down an entire salad. After of which he started asking around for jobs and adventures. An offer that interested him was helping to collect artifacts made by a species of equine called changelings. Before then Free had never once heard of a changeling and it interested him. He took the job and began helping a cult of changeling worshipers collect the artifact. They ranged from small little necklace beads to massive <strong>REDACTED INFO</strong> machines. Free was amazed by them all, and even built his own cabin along with a massive underground to store all of the artifacts in the Everfree Forest. In 1769 Free found his Damascus Steel Sword, &lsquo;Tenbris Savaltor&rsquo; within an abandoned changeling cave. It proved to be an effective weapon in combat, and the cult members allowed him to keep the longsword sword. Free Form joined the cult later in the years and proved himself to be worthy of the hard trials he faced. Going as far as to impress the other members from his skills as an artifact hunter, little did they know he was using a special spell to find objects around him. More years would pass and a large incident would occur. In 1772, the Keeper of the Changeling Order was killed by an arrow. Free attempted to save the Keepers life but sadly failed. The cult looked past this though and made Free the new keeper. The time would be short though as in 1788 Free Form found himself dead once again.</p>
<p>Free tumbled back into the Medium and once again met with the reaping Manticore who he spoke with Free and taught him powerful spells and hundreds of other things. Back up on the surface in Equestria. With Free Form, the cult crumbled and the members went their own ways, eventually living out the rest of their days in peace. Free though kept learning and learning until finally in 1794 Free returned from the dead. He started up a basic Alchemy shop outside the Everfree and began to compete against Zecora. He may or may not have spread a rumor or two about her leading to ponies fearing her within Ponyville which boosted his business, this was short lived though as in 1800 his Alchemy shop burned down. Free then built an Inn and lived peacefully up until 1815, during those fifteen years he took part in several activities ranging from Winter Wrap Up to helping fight off the changelings in Canterlot. Then finally in 1815 a Brass colored mare came into Free Form&rsquo;s life and changed everything. This mare's name was Brass Lantern and Free immediately fell in love with her. He spent the next few days speaking with her, learning of her past, and eventually coming to learn that she was a changeling. The two became even closer, and in a few weeks time the two were admitting their love for each other. Free did however have to show her what the emotion love was though. Six days later a unicorn came into the Inn and burned it down. Free and Brass barely escaped, then set out to Free&rsquo;s cabin where he promised her the Throne in the San Palomino Hive, the hive that she was from. With a couple weeks of training Free Form taught the mare to fight and aided in helping Equestria&rsquo;s Council where he befriended a unicorn named Lock On. Eventually Free and Brass made their way to the San Palomino Hive and defeated the Queen. Brass took control of the hivemind and became the new Queen. She made Free her King and the two began ruling together as the monarchs of the San Palomino Hive. Slowly Free Form began to change things about the hive and help it evolve into a civilized hive where ponies and changelings could live without fear of each other. Things were going well up until early 1816 when an incident happened. Maddened by Pure magic poisoning, Free Form went on a massive killing spree, eventually causing a fault to slide nearly a mile causing a massive earthquake to destroy Coristis. Free passed away and was quickly brought back to life where he took back power in Coristis and began establishing a full blown government.</p>
<p>Free set up alliances with the Mountain Hive and later attended the Court of Changelings where he helped Form the Treaty of the Everfree along with Enigma, Skarlet Page, and Golden Radiance. Free then created trade agreements with Skarlet Page of the Shard Hive, and an official of Saddle Arabia. Only a few days later Free Form would meet a stallion by the name of Iron Root. Interested in this stallion Free Form invited him back to Coristis and tested his will and courage. After a few fights against some foe within Coristis, Free would declare Iron eligible for becoming a Coristian Retainer for Free and Brass. Fast forward a few months and Iron would become Free's full retainer, and most trusted one at that. In the beginning of 1817 Free Form invited his retainer Iron Root to help him take care of some creatures inside of a cave and discover what happened to a group of miners who have vanished two weeks before that. As they headed out to the cave they came across some Appleloosan Mercenaries who had set camp not far outside of the city of Damascus. Free and Iron murdered these mercenaries and headed towards the cave. Once reaching it they came across two cave dwelling creatures, discovering the corpse of one of the miners. This was short lived when Free and Iron were met by a Silver Dragon with deep, dark purple eyes that shot a burst of purple fire out at the two. Free teleported Iron and himself towards the exit of the cave and made their way back towards Damascus to find out what caused those mercenaries to come all the way from Appleloosa to Free's city. Free and Iron would find that a mare named Gear Strong had foalnapped nearly a hundred soon to be mercenaries from the Appleloosan Mercenary Guard, stallions that had been falsely accused by the leader, Danger Free in order to increase the size of their army. Danger Free contacted Free Form asking for the stallions back, Free Form declined causing Danger Free to declare war on Coristis. The A.P.G (Appleloosan Mercenary Guard) prepared their army and head out towards Damascus two weeks later. A war broke out as the A.P.G attempted a siege on Damascus. Enigma, lord of the Mountain Hive joined Free Form and Iron Roots in the battle. Halfway through the battle Free called for the floodgates to be opened and a torrent of water poured out on what as left of the A.P.G. As this happened the Silver Dragon Free and Iron had found escaped from it's stony prison and attacked Damascus. Free Form and fourteen others shot at the dragon with cannons and eventually did take it down after nearly a twelve hour battle of switching between cannons. The battle had ended and Coristis had come out victorious, winning it's first battle since the Civil War back in 1815.</p>
<p>As the war passed, and things turned back to normal within Coristis, and the city of Damascus. Coristis would begin building upon it's defenses as well as it's crops. Reforming for crops to grow without the need for magic due to the complexity of the soil. One day, as Free was hunting down a creature that had been slaughtering a band of ponies traveling through the lands, Free was pinned by the creature, and had his right foreleg ripped off and ripped to shreds before he was able to slay it. Free Form went into a state of depression as he took in the realization that he had lost a limb, and for nearly a month he would remain in his room, tinkering, and keeping to himself before finally coming out with a metal limb which he could use to walk around. With time he shall be improving upon it, and making it more resistant to magic, finding that it is it's greatest weakness.</p>

<p>Illusory Pyre - This spell sends an image into a ponies head, making them see their own body being burned on a pyre with their head on a stick.</p>

<p>Empathic Agony - This spell allows Free Form to feel what the pony cast upon feels, this is not limited to pain.</p>

<p>Mirror Entity - This spell allows you to create a moving mirror entity of the pony cast upon. Doing this will gain the attention of said pony when they look at the mirror. The entity within the mirror has the ability to move on it's own.</p>

<p>Circle of Strength - This spell forms a massive circle around the healer, anypony who steps in is granted</p>
<p>Wild Healing - This spell heals anypony in the surrounding area, the only catch to the spell is that it will heal a random pony. It is best used when under constant attack.</p>
<p>Leech Seed (Black Magic) - This is a rather odd spell. When using this spell, this will suck the life out of eggs, whether it be bird eggs, changeling eggs, or anything else registered by the spell as an egg, it will suck the life out of it. This also applies to anything held within a womb, so a foal could have it's life force sucked out of it while it is in the womb, killing it in the process. This is a black magic spell.</p>
<p>Necroplague Slay Living (Black Magic) - This spell allows Free Form to suck the life force out of a dying creature. This spell will not work on creatures with magical resistance or strong willpower.</p>
