Phoenix Character Sheet

Post by Burning Wing » 2/28/18 11:44 AM

Name: Phoenix Wind

Age: 29

Gender: male

Race: pegasus

Appearance: Phoenix Wind is a stocky well built red pegasus. He has a black spicked back mane and short black tail along with emerald green eyes. He is a bit bigger and bulkier than most pegasi stallions. This is due to him being a life long martial artist and while it makes him a bit physically imposing it does limit his speed when he is flying.

Personality: Phoenix tries his best to be a good pony. He has strong morals and will go out of his way to help others. That being said he hates nightmaremoon's rule and tends to be rather standoffish with the guards. He is very sympathetic to the rebellion and will often help any members he comes across. Phoenix believes in mutual respect so as long as someone treats him with respect he will do the same. He often sees the guards as ineffective as he is far more skilled in combat than most guards. Although he has had years of training so it isn't exactly a fair comparison. Lastly Phoenix is very strong willed and determined. He will not give up no matter how hopeless things seem for him. Sometimes this can almost get him killed sometimes it can make more dangerous than he seems.

Backstory: Before Nightmaremoon's take over. Phoenix worked as a lunar gaurd. He was considering quiting due to a few personal reasons but than Nightmaremoon declared herself queen. Phoenix abandoned his post at the first oppertunity and now travels on the outskirts of towns controlled by Nightmaremoon. He now often takes to causing a lot of trouble for Nightmaremoon's forces, Killing isolated patrols and sometimes guards who are alone. He is not technically part of the rebellion as he would prefer not to have to take orders but he has been willing to organise with them. Durning the eternal night Phoenix has become rather bitter and has grown a hatered towards Nightmaremoon and her guards.

Cutie Mark: A flamming sword to represent his skill in combat and his burning determination

Equipment: He carries with him a very large scimitar (basically a curved sword) and he generally has a few herbal remedies on him in his saddle bags.

Faction: neutral but extremely sympathetic to the rebellion

A pegasi who goes for muscle mass rather than speed, interesting subversion of racial traits.

That being said, I'm willing to accept this, but there are a few things I need to warn you about. The first issue I see with this is more a warning than anything. Nightmare Moon doesn't care if he's neutral or rebellion or even loyalist - if he's going around killing guards, she's going to have his likeness on bounty boards and wanted lists. Honestly most rebellion members are kind of in the same boat, but by joining said rebellion they know they at least have allies.

Second, Nightmare Moon has been involved in this hostile takeover of Equestria ever since she's returned. The Lunar Guards Phoenix is going up against are nothing like the guards we see in-show - military tactics are being drilled into their training more than ceremonial proceedings. While I'm not saying you *couldn't* overpower a few, but it wouldn't be long before the patrols know to look out for you.

//Sweet and I did thr alignment thing just to state that he wasn't part of any official resistance. Also could we just say that he has only begun fighting. Only taken out 2 or 3 guards? That would slove the problem yeah?
