Roleplay Area: Land of Equestria
Name: Silver Baassahr Oruin Loraarv Tuiln (Bolt)
Sex: Male
Age: Adult (Runt)
Species: Dragon
Eye Color:Blue
Scale Color(s): Primarily blue with silver markings and under belly.
Spikes/Tail Blade(s) & Style: Silver mohawk styled head spines and back spikes.

Physique: Silver Bolt is a pony sized dragon with blue scales and silver spikes. He has a silver underbelly and two silver stripes across his back that look like lightning bolts He also has bright blue eyes and mohawk styled head spines. He is full grown yet only as big as a male stallion,as he is a runt compared to his sisters that grew as big as houses and mountains. He has been seen walking on all fours as well as two feet. He is a laid-back and cool-headed character. Like his name would imply, Bolt can move at the speed of sound (and even exceed this), and has lightning fast reflexes to match (hence his name) In addition to this being a dragon also grants him the additional ability to breath fire.

Residence: A cave south of Canterlot

Occupation: Monster Hunter. Bolt uses his abilities to hunt towering barely sentient creatures.While monsters are often not depicted imposing on pony settlements there are a few rare cases in which they do the urasa major and minor rampaging in PonyVille for example. Due to the low amount of attacks on towns and cities is just another reason Bolt is always broke (The scource of a long running gag). Most of his 'work' consists of him venturing into marked monster territory and bringing the fight to them. Bolt chose to live his life as a hunter in order to make productive use of his killer instinct. While Bolt considers himself a hero his job is just a cover to allow him to fight and slay as many things as possible. As a dragon Bolt is violent by nature so he got creative with his career to hide the fact at times he is little more than a monster inside himself. Thus he projects his inner wrath upon those wild beasts unlucky enough for him to call prey. (Note the humor in this comes from for such a powerful and noble beast he can't get his claws on the bits that make the civil world go round. It's also ironic as dragons horde treasure he dosen't have acess to any.)


Personality:
Bolt is a daredevil who can run at the speed of sound & beyond. He is a fun and fast guy out on an ego trip. Having saved numerous towns from destruction has left Bolt with an inflated sense of self as he thinks highly of himself. Ever since stepping into the battle against injustice, Bolt has been a champion of peace. Well-known for his legendary c,ocky attitude, easy-going demeanor and somewhat short temper, yet strong sense of justice and love for freedom and adventure, Bolt uses his abilities to protect the innocent from lumbering beasts that would threaten civilized settlements. Throughout his life, Bolt has exhibited a great desire for adventure and excitement, in keeping with his super speed. Thrill-seeking aside, he genuinely cares for the people and things he fights for, which at times has led him to break the rules in order to do what he thinks must be done. His greatest flaw in this area may be that he has developed something of a need for action, which leaves him uneasy. His addiction to action influences his decisions more heavily than any other factor. Though he has great loyalty to his friends, he has shown a tendency to be hesitant about committing to anything that doesn't allow him to fight for the things he cares about.

The blue dragon is also a world class wise guy and trash talker as he enjoys nothing more than talking witty smack. He generally enjoys messing around and having a good time as Bolt is a flashy over the top show off often showcasing and bragging about his skills. With very few exceptions Bolt rarely shows any seriousness. He can be serious when the situation calls for it, but he still maintains a laid-back demeanour during such situations and is never without a witty taunt or comeback. Bolt’s attitude of living in a "dream-like" existence is displayed by his careless behavior and his nonchalant attitude towards dangerous or outright fatal situations. Bolt is very cunning and intelligent and likes to use his wit to sass others.

When he is shown not working, Bolt is very laid back, sarcastic, and lively.Generally Bolt just takes life as it comes. He enjoys sleeping as if often found snoring his free hours away.One of Bolt's biggest pass times is the enjoyment he derives comic books and detective stories. It is this love of reading that prompted him to start chronicling his battles and adventures.

Bolt is quite the mares man as he has never shown interest in his own species he considers pony females far more beautiful. One of his notable achievements includes a scandal with royalty. Bolt is very friendly and light hearted towards most he meets often wanting to help with their problems. With his close friends he displays a deeper and more meaningful connection as he has the soul of a poet. As an interest he enjoys writing about his many adventures and battles. Bolt is very polite and respectful towards woman but often doesn't get along with other males due to his very Alpha like status. Bolt is indeed a great hero but he thinks he's a lot better than he actually is some people view him as an egotistical jerk whose major traits are egotism and foolishness. This high level of arrogance and self-importance spawns from his species and gender as male dragons are very proud and territorial creatures.


History:
Bolt was born as the single male of a litter of an entirely female brood. Ironically enough he was also a runt. Where his sisters grew as big as houses he never grew past the size of stallion. He was left behind as a hatchling as he was too small to fly north for the migration. Alone and abadoned he taught himself as he went through life. The turning day for Bolt was when he had amassed a small fortune in gold. This was the stage at which he could have devloped a hording habit. However as he was dragging his loot towards his cave something in a shop window caught his eye. It was of all things a comic book depitcting on the cover a heroic figure called The Maredowell (I was going for Batmare but Maredowell is basicly Equestria's Batman.) Bolt wanted this novel more than anything. He wasn't aware how much value bits to items had so he took the book leaving the entire sack of coins in it's place too fast to be seen by the pony in the store. Needless to say the owner was thirlled to have made a years pay in a single day. From this book Bolt learned many things that would help shape him into the dragon he is today. He learned to read,speak in pony tounge and even the basics of civil interactions, but most of all the thing that captured his heart was the morals in the story. He admired the heroic figure preforming selfless and glorfied acts to aid others. Being a hero was something Bolt had always wanted and one day he wants to be just like the hero in his book.Afterwards he lived as a drifter helping folks when he could but mostly bragging due to his massive ego. Ever since then he's been wandering looking for adventure and violence.

This is a very interesting and delightful app! 

 

There are just a couple problems I need to mention, just to coincide with the rules of our Canon roleplay:

 

  • Currently, the only dragon allowed to have prior interaction with pony folk is Spike. We prefer dragon players to get immersed into their character and develop pony relations in-RP.
  • This character is...well, a little over-powered, to put it simply. Super speed, super strength, dragon breath--he's a little too perfect. That said, if you'd rather leave him overpowered, as well as leave his interaction, you're welcome to change him to FFA.
  • There are a few darker themes that don't really fit in with pony canon (such as his view of 'death', which...as of the current show, is something that seems like will never happen.) 
  • All around, it's a good character, but maybe a better fit for Free For All. It's up to you, though, as for what you'd like to do. :) 

Thanks!

Ok...so....While pony interraction is not allowed, he still has a history, so please fill it out. He was born, right? What made him not become an evil dragon who hoards shiny objects?

There are ways to expand on a dragon without using ponies.

 

Or, if you want, use Gryphons or some other species. There's no rule against that. :)

 

In addition, could you maybe expand on how he became a 'monster hunter,' and what that entails? As far as canon goes, monsters--even those that are not at pony-level intelligence, are treated as pets or simple wild animals (example: the manticore), and while some are feared (ie: the hydra) they seem to stay away from pony society if left alone, and are never... 'slayed.'

 

I'd love to see some expansion on that part of Bolt. :charm:
