Name: Yunalesca, or just Yuna.
Nickname: 'Lady Yuna'
Gender: Female
Age: Mare
Species: Pegasus-zebra hybrid; 'zony'
Eye colour: Dark magenta irises
Character colour: A pastel fuchsia, with a white belly and white flight feathers.
Mane/Tail/Other: Her mane is an indeterminate dark brown sometimes streaked with thin, pale stripes when she forgets to redye her mane and tail hair. Both are worn rather long, sometimes bound by gold rings.
Physique: Yuna stands at the average height of most ponies with a slim if rather skinny frame; the latter is the result of traveling often and sometimes forgetting to eat.
Residence: Various, as she travels from town to town; she lives out of her wagon.
Occupation: Fortune teller. Yuna spends her time telling others' fortunes and trying to predict their future. She utilizes tarot cards, dream meanings, astrology, and clairvoyance with a crystal ball for 'scrying' into for her fortune telling. She may even offer horoscopes upon request.
Cutie Mark: A curl of purple smoke coming out of a half-closed green eye.

Special Talent: Precognition; Yuna has a way of reading into things in order to predict what may happen, as well as reading ponies given enough time. Mostly manifests as 'feelings/gut feelings'.
Unique Traits: Faint stripes slightly darker than her coat visibly litter it, marking her as having zebra blood. Two white spots on each cheek and a spattering of freckles on the bridge of her snout.
Other: She wears shawls of varying dark colors and styles, all noticeably worn from travel as well as two, small gold hoop earrings in her left ear.


History: Yuna hails from a small village along the Unicorn Range, living only with her mother. She was a shy filly, something not helped by the bullying she received from other foals for being half zebra. It persisted the older she got, having not yet managed to earn her cutiemark no matter what she tried. She eventually got into the more occult side of things when she came across the topic of strange magics, the supernatural and fortune telling, much to her mother's unhappiness. While Yuna came to understand fortune telling was merely all smoke and mirrors and didn't amount to anything, the basic idea interested her: to predict the future. She'd always been more comfortable with pony-watching, so it became a past time of hers to observe the world, and ponies, around her to try to see what might happen, where their lives might lead. It was something she found herself to be very good at, even if most of the accidents and disasters that happened were the results of clumsy or unaware ponies.

 

She later tried a strange shop in town that sold such things like tarot cards just so she might try out the fortune telling side of things. Yuna didn't find it too hard once she learned to ask the right questions and told ponies what they wanted to hear, although sometimes she didn't; Yuna was genuine in her warnings. Once she was an older adolescent, Yuna finally gained her cutiemark after realizing how much of a knack she had for it, and an unusual one at that: a half-lidded green eye with purple smoke pouring out of the pupil. In the years after Yuna would continue doing what she was best at, along with learning many other things. Yuna wanted to see if it was possible to see into the future, as her want to prevent accidents before they happened had never quite left her, though such a thing never seemed attainable without some sort of magic- magic she didn't have. It was mildly disappointing, but it was her springboard into pursuing her other passion: helping ponies. Her desire was born of wanting to be the better pony, and this encouraged her to finally leave her tiring home town behind to travel as a fortune teller.


Character Personality: Yuna puts on a friendly face when interacting with ponies, but has never managed to enjoy their company. She is callous and distrustful, usually keeping her distance, and fears others shutting her out; because of such, she keeps to herself. There are rare times she yearns for the company of other ponies, but she ultimately doesn't know how to approach them or make friends. Her experience as a traveling fortuneteller has somewhat alleviated this, but she is only capable of talking to ponies without anxiety in a professional setting. Casual talk and making friends is an entirely different thing to her, and she is hesitant in socializing no matter how friendly the pony; though actually doing so is never a problem. Yuna experiences social anxiety and ultimately fears abandonment, both things that she is capable of keeping from view with an air of indifference. Slow to warm up to ponies, and sometimes too honest to the point of coming across as mean- but she's always quick to apologize. What Yuna desires most in the world is only to help ponies, and she feels she is capable of doing this through playing fortuneteller.


Character Summary: Yuna is a pegasus-zebra hybrid with a fondness for the occult and fortunetelling, and a passion for helping ponies. Though she is shy and asocial with no idea how to make friends, she always tries to work around her past issues if it means possibly gaining one.

 

* I don't normally use Yuna's predict-y side of things. If your character comes to her for a reading, feel free to tell me what you want her to see/predict/etc for your character! I never do this without the other person's permission, unless you want me to just make up some nonsense~
