Wūyā Yīnyîng [Ready]

Recommended Posts

Name: Wūyā Yīnyîng


Sex: Male


Age: Adult


Species: Yosuzume (a bird Yokai.) Disguises as a longma, usually. 


Eye Color: Blood red in his true form, a light pink in his pony form. 


Character Color: In both forms, his body is mainly a midnight purple in color, with certain parts a light gray. In his bird form, the gray is the feathers across his chest and belly, while in his pony form they take the form of his scales and the two small antler-like horns he sports. 


Mane/Tail: His pony form sports a short and simple mane, slicked back to keep it out of his face. His tail is not really styled either, just kept short. Both are a lighter purple. 


Physique: He is an impressive specimen, with a build that held strength in it even though it was built for agility and speed. His bird form is just as tall, though he can shrink himself down to blend in as a regular bird too. 


Residence: The Imperial Palace of Long Guo


Occupation: Member of the Imperial Watch. 


Cutie Mark: The mark he gave to his disguise is a simple one, a blue shooting star splitting in two about halfway down. 


Unique Traits: Clones: A trait inherited from his species, he has the ability to create clones of himself with magic, allowing him to be his own flock should the need arise. It also proves to be useful in scouting and combat, being able to create your own reinforcements. 

Shapeshifting: Like other Yokai, he has the ability to change his shape to blend in with ponies. 

Magic: He has all the regular magic, such as levitation, though he also boasts the ability to fire off electricity from simple static shocks to small lightning bolts. 

Training: Due to the rigorous training involved with his station, he has the ability to effectively wield and fight with a variety of weapons, most notably a chain and sickle he carries with him everywhere. The training also heightened his already present skills with stealth. 


History: From the first moment he could remember, he had been mostly alone. Sure, there were some others of his kind around to show him the ropes, but other than that he was left to his own devices. This mostly lead him down a path of doing whatever he wanted and taking whatever he wanted using his magic and the skills he developed during that time. He always felt unfulfilled though as he got older, as if there was something missing, some purpose he needed to find. With that in mind, he set out into the world, eventually exploring all of Neighpon with only limited success. He needed something more, and for some reason was drawn to Long Guo. Perhaps his heart knew where his purpose lay before he did. Or perhaps the air currents just felt like carrying the aimless bird that way. 


In either case, he found himself in Long Guo, flying over some building in a forest when he crashed for maybe the first time in his life. Having not paid attention, he had clipped a tree and injured his wing. When he came to, he was in the forest with a young qilin standing over him. He would never forget that face, even as his next few months were spent not seeing her at all while he was treated for his injury. Thankfully, he had managed to hold up the disguise of a regular bird instead of his true form during the recovery. Once he was healthy again, he left, getting one last look at the mare that had found him.  


He never forgot that face, it was stuck in his mind as he decided he needed to repay her for that. A while after that incident, he decided to try and settle down somewhere, crafting his longma form before making his way into a town. He asked around in the town, finally learning a name to go with the face. Empress Yue. 


From that moment on, he knew what he needed to do to repay her, and went to a city he had heard had a seedier underbelly to find a forger to create an identity for himself here. After pulling a simple job for them, they made his new history and gave him his new name. 


The yokai now known as Wūyā traveled to the palace next, joining up with the newer Empress's Imperial Watch and enduring the training in order to repay his debt to her. By the time he actually got past the training, he actually had a loyalty to his Empress, serving her loyally ever since. 


Personality: Wūyā is very serious about his work, placing Yue's safety over that of anyone else, especially himself. That being said, he is perfectly kind to his allies, though very formal. He rarely relaxes from his duty, as he is always on the clock in his mind. The only one he really feels comfortable relaxing around is the head chef and fellow Yokai. She was the only one he could relax around because she already knew his secret. 


Summary: A very diligent guard, Wūyā stands ready to sacrifice everything for the sake of his Empress.
