History:
Shock's early life seemed somewhat normal, almost idyllic. Growing up in Cloudsdale, he was an average student, a prominent member of the cloudball team, and was studying martial arts in hopes of becoming a professional championship fighter. Everything was going well for him, he had friends, family, a bright future... but then came the accident...

Nopony is quite sure what happened, and the parties at fault were quick to cover it up and sweep it under the rug since it was a small matter that happened away from prying eyes... but to say it was "small" was only looking at the big picture... Shock was the only survivor losing his family and friends, and he had suffered serious head trauma. Even with surgery it was unsure if he would live.

When he beat the odds and woke though, he was a completely different stallion. His interest in sports and martial arts was gone, instead becoming a brilliant study in math and science, but his psyche was in shambles... when anypony asked about an aspect of his previous life, shock would ofte just shrug, at best he would make some philosophical comment that held seemingly no connection to him emotionally. He would also focus less on ponies and more on animals... but not the way a normal pony would... he would try to teach squirrels to use a fire-pit to roast their acorns, or teach birds advanced mathematics to aid their flight... if the animals had any grasp of what he was saying, it was not much...

In short, Shock was on the short list for an asylum, but then somepony stepped in. Where she came from and why she took interest in shock wasn't clear, but she did - and she had the bits to backup whatever she said.

He made progress, at least to the point that the doctors felt he could be released, and when he was, Shock left cloudsdale with the mare, headed for canterlot, to a new future and hopefully in time, the pieces of his mind would settle back into place...

Character Personality:
Shock is highly intelligent, but is not all there. He seems to have two hooves in our world and two in another - he usually is stable enough that he simply comes off as eccentric, but at other times he is so far out in left field that ponies will keep their distance for fear. However he is almost always upbeat, unless talking about his past. 

Character Summary:
A skilled fighter in both body and weathermagic, with the brains to back it up --- but there is something wrong with him. An accident left his mind in shambles, with many questioning if he even remembers his past in any logical way, he sees the world through a different lens than other ponies now... though how much of this is true insanity and how much is his attempt to cope with the loss of everything he ever had is up for debate...
