  1. Roleplay Type: WoE Name: Gale Gender: Male Age: Adult Species: Griffon Eye colour: Blue (#2EB7E6) Coat: Lower Body: Red (#A21F0A), Wings: Dark Red (#821808), Feet: Yellow (#FFB500) Mane/Tail: Brown (#56413D) Physique: Average height for an adult griffon. He has two sets of scars, one over his left eye and the other on his neck. Residence: Small farming village in The Neighples Delta Occupation: Retired Army & Guard, currently a farmer Cutie Mark: N/A Unique Traits: He has years of experience in fighting, though he’s gotten a bit older he can still stand up for himself better than the average griffon in battle. History: He joined the Royal Army when he was young, during which time he was saved by a unicorn, someone he would owe a life debt to. After serving for 10 years, he was able to leave his position and become a guard for a small town in the Neighples Delta. It was during this time that his debt was called on, and he was made the guardian of a young unicorn foal by the name of Amber Shadow. Having no choice, he begrudgingly raised her as his own, and after a few years actually began caring for her as if she was his own child. During his time working as a guard, he had a bad encounter with some other Griffons, to protect Amber, and ended up with two sets of scars from the ensuing fight. After this, he left his position and began working as a farmer, something he believed was more suited to someone raising a foal. Amber would often bring back old books she found, or bought, when she was young. Gale eventually began reading them himself, and found that he quite enjoyed the stories and history many told. He won’t admit to enjoying it, but he loves sitting down and relaxing with a good book. After Amber was old enough, she set out on her own, leaving Gale to live alone again. He continued his work as a farmer, finding himself enjoying the calmer work over being a guard. Character Personality: Standoffish and short tempered to everyone except those he’s closest with. He makes it a point to come off as tough, bragging about his time in battle, or as a guard at every change he gets if he feels he isn’t being respected enough. When it comes to those he’s close with, like family, he’s quick to help. He won’t admit to caring about them directly, and will often make excuses when assisting to make it seem like less of a big deal. He’s more open to kindness from non-griffons after raising a pony as his own child, though he’ll never openly admit it. Character Summary: Gale worked in the Army and in the Guard in his younger years. After an old debt was called in, he raised a young unicorn as his own child. He’s quick to protect those he cares about, and is short tempered to those he doesn’t. He picked up reading as a hobby from Amber, and enjoys sitting down with a good book to relax.
  2. ~Basics~ Roleplay Type: WoE Name: GillianNicknames: Gill, Gilly, Gilligan Sex: Female (her/she)Age: Young AdultSpecies: Griffon (She's half Peregrine Falcon, half Cheetah)Sexual Orientation: Lesbian ~Physical Attributes~ Eye Color: A soft green that melds into orange. Character Color: Her main body is a normal cheetah coloring with dark brown spots covering throughout. Her bird claws and beak are a orange-y yellow. Mane/Tail: Her plumage ranges from three different colors, a darker blue that looks grey, a lighter blue-grey, and a more mellowed out brown. She's rather fluffy, as her chest and the top of her head has extra feather. The ones on her head form a mohawk, reaching down her neck. Her wings are large and strong, and her inner feathers are lighter than the outer ones. Physique: Gill is very athletic looking, tall and muscular, literally build for speed. Extra: She always has her flight goggles on her head, and is rarely seen without them. When she isn't wearing them, you can see that her right eyebrow is partly shaved off. She does that on purpose for a more 'edgy' look. Cutie Mark: Griffons don't have cutie marks, duh! Unless you're Gabby. Description: N/A Story: N/A ~Outside Information~ Family: Aunt (Griffon (Falcon/White Lion)): Gia Occupation: Air Sprinter (And hopeful future Wonderbolt) Residence: She currently lives in Griffonstone with her Aunt, but travels for her meets. ~Characteristics~ Character Personality: Gillian isn't really your typical grumpy griffon, as she isn't the type to lash out on some creature because of something stupid. She's really quite reserved, most of the time keeping to herself and only herself. Because of that, she doesn't have many friends. Or any at all. Like most griffons, she wasn't opened to friendship. The only times she's had a glimpse was when she was in the Junior Speedsters Flight Camp when she was little. She's not known to get comfortable with any creature, as she doesn't trust them. Gill isn't rude or anything, she just simply isn't the type to start a conversation. When she is brought into one, she always has a level head and speaks out with basic answers. Sometimes she's a little awkward, or feels awkward, or both. She was shy when she was little, which is kind of what brought out her more reserved nature. She's a pretty determined griffon, and likes to focus on her work and how she can improve. She doesn't really take cocky creatures all too well, and isn't fond of unnecessary reckless actions. She tends to be quick to be defensive with these types of creatures, and likes to fire back insults. It's her and her work and that's it. Gill isn't much of a team player, so she has trouble fulfilling her dream of being a Wonderbolt. She has a long way to go. Unique Traits: Gill is very very fast. This birb was literally built for speed. Being a mix of the two fastest animals known to Equestria, it's not hard for her to prove herself worthy of winning races. Her wings are strong and powerful, and she's very agile. It takes little to no effort for her to keep up with others, but she does work a lot. It's rare to see her doing something else rather than flying. She's also rather fast on the ground too, and loves to take on large hikes and climbs. Her endurance is phenomenal, and can fly and run for a really long time. That's just from staying in shape though, because cheetahs aren't known for have a strong endurance. History: Gillian was born on a rather rainy day in Griffonstone. She was kind of unexpected from her birth mom, as she was the result of a one night fling. Her mom wouldn't be able to take care of her, as she really didn't want to. Her mom's sister though, Gia, wanted to take her in. Her Auntie Gia wanted to have a kid on her own, but because Griffonstone was so depressed at the time, it was kind of hard. So, Gia took custody of the little baby birb. She sees her mom sometimes, but isn't super close with her. Growing up, Gillian was rather shy. She hated unnecessary attention, and just wanted to be by herself in the backyard. All she would do was fly around and figure out how to do cool tricks. She over heard her aunt talk about the Wonderbolts one time, and the griffon was very intrigued by the group. For days on end she'd try and get her aunt to talk about the flying group, but the only thing that little Gill was scared of was that it was an all pony group. A little discouraged, the griffon asked her aunt to put her in a flying club. She started out in an all griffon flight school, but realized their grumpy and rude nature overwhelmed her. They also didn't try as hard as her, and she didn't have any griff to push her to her limits. She stuck to herself, and her aunt ended up sticking her in a flight school located in Cloudsdale. Of course Gill was nervous to be around a bunch of colorful, happy-go-lucky ponies, but her aunt thought it would be for the best. It was there where she met her match, a little pony named Golden Daze, and Daze's best friend Sea F. Salt. Finally she had some creature to keep up with! They soon became arch rivals, and honestly, as Gill hated Daze's guts. They were rivals for years, and still are. Even though their passions are different, they still push each other. Over the years though, Daze continued to be extremely cocky, which drove Gill insane, but, Gill does have a soft spot for the Pegasus. Maybe even has a little crush. Shhhhh... Currently, the griffon is an air sprinter, and has meets literally everywhere. She just hopes one day the Wonderbolts look her up. She has yet to join the academy, but eventually will. A little growing up photo for reference: Character Summary: Gillian is a reserved griffon literally made for speed, and wants to fulfill her dreams of becoming one of the best fliers. She has a long way to go though..
  3. Roleplay Type: WoE Name: Gail Nicknames: Gails, Speedy, Dork, Goofball, Goober Sex: Female Age: Young Adult Species: Griffon Sexual Orientation: Lesbian Eye Color: A light blue. She has a whole lot of black eye liner on the top of her eyes and underneath. Body Color: The lion part of her body is a light yellow like a lion while her plumage is grey, blue, and light blue. Her claws and beak are a lighter grey. Feather Color: The tip of her lion tail is a dark orange, while her feathers on her head are dark grey. Feather Style: She keeps her biggest feathers swept neatly to the back of her head. She has rather thick feathers, almost looking like a Mohawk. She also has extra feathers on the sides of well, so she sweeps them back as well. Physique: She is extremely athletic looking. Long legs (making her taller than regular griffons), strong build, and more muscular than others. Her tail is a lot longer than other griffons, but her wings are smaller than average. She has a few scars that are normally hidden on her back legs and her long tail from weird mishaps. She has light grey marks over her eyebrows and beak. She also almost always has bandages wrapped around her two back legs (pretty much around her ankles) and around her tail. She is also A LOT fluffier than normal griffons. Current Residence: She doesn't live anywhere specific. She's a traveler. Buuuttt she pretty much sleeps on any comfortable cloud she sees. Job: She does multiple sports as jobs, which are track (in the spring), soccer (in the summer and fall), and basketball (in the winter). When she isn't playing sports, she's normally traveling places. Cutie Mark: Gail is a griffon, she doesn't have one. Unique Traits: She sticks out her tongue when trying to be cute. She is extremely quick footed and super fast in the sky, so she incredibly athletically talented. She makes obnoxious facial expressions when trying to display her emotions. She makes bird noises when nervous or uncomfortable, but also jumps in the air really high when excited. She tries to act cool in front of ponies she wants to impress. When she's upset, she'll be completely silent and make no eye contact with anyone. She'll ruffle pony's manes or wrap her arm around their shoulder when she likes them. She winks at random ponies. She's ALWAYS chewing gum. If you pet her stomach, she'll hiss at you, but then will roll on her back and purr like a kitten. She's very flirty, but can make somepony uncomfortable very quickly. She's just very showing of her emotions. She uses a lot of body language. History: Being born in a late winter day in the Griffon Stone hospital, her parents knew she would be something special one day. Of course they thought the same to her twin sister, but something sparked more with Gail. When her parents got to take her home, they noticed how fast she learned things. So fast, they couldn't keep up with her. They noticed how joyful she was. She rarely cried or made any fuss, so they decided to name her Gail, which means joy. At the age of five, her family moved into a much bigger city called Cantorlot. Growing up, Gail didn't get the attention she wanted. Of course she got bullied by the average ponies for not fitting in with their "high class" opinions. They would make fun of her looks and why she didn't like to talk to anypony. She didn't care much about them though, and she took the experiences like a champ, learning to get a thicker skin. Over the years though, she started to get insecure about her surroundings. Her parents found out that she was extremely smart in both school, and sports. They enrolled her sister in Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns, but since Gail couldn't do magic, they ended up sending her off her the Juniors Speedsters Flight Camp, where she showed off her amazing flying skills to the other ponies. She was surprised that she could fly though, because growing up, her wings didn't grow as fast as a normal griffon's would. But luckily, because of her skinny body type, her wings could easily lift her off the ground. Gail began to notice her mom throwing a whole bunch of girly stuff on her, making her to grow uncomfortable with herself. Blue bows were always put into her feathers, but she left them there to make her mother happy. She felt like she was more masculine than those girly bows. In her early teenager years, she started to grow apart from her family's girly antics and started to become full tomboy. She'd put her long feathers in a ponytail, stuck hair ties in her tail, and wrap her paws in wrap to look cool. Lucky for her, she'd broken her legs before from her clumsiness, so she thought the wrap would be nice to have anyway. Ponies thought she looked out of place in their school, but she didn't care much. One day she was walking down her school's hallway to see a whole bunch of fliers telling ponies to join all their sports teams since they needed more ponies to join. She felt her eyes spark, causing her to grab all the papers and fill them out. The first sport to start was track, which was that day. She told her parents she was going to be late to go home, and went straight to practice. To join the team though, she had to go through with racing the best players from the team. So, she did with all her pride and confidence, and raced against them all. Once she finished her race, she noticed that she won. She got 1st place against all ponies. And that's when she realized she loves sports. Of course the others complained that her legs are longer than theirs, but she didn't take that seriously. She knew tons of ponies her age that were just as fast as her, so Gail shook her head a proceeded with life. Character Personality: Obnoxious, dorky, and hates almost everything in the world, Gail is one negative griffon. She's probably a head taller than most griffons, making her stand out immensely. She uses her tallness and quick reflexes to insult anypony who is shorter than her, (which is probably almost everypony). Gail is the one called "stereotypical bully" towards anypony weaker than her, and uses other's weaknesses against them once she's learned them. Though she normally doesn't mean to hurt anypony deeply, she does cause stuff like broken hearts to happen. It is extremely rare if she likes somepony, like so rare she keeps it to herself to seem tough (you'll normally know if she likes you because she'll say she hates you when she doesn't). She normally says the opposite of what she means, becoming really sarcastic at times, or pretty much all the time. If you've known her for a while, she breaks out of her shell and talks more. She can get very passionate about the stuff she loves, and says things as it is. She doesn't have a filter on her mouth, nor cares what she says until in effects somepony. She normally finds herself in a lot of trouble that she never means to cause, and she always feels horrible afterwards. Ponies don't know until they get close to her, but she is actually really sweet and caring. If she finds somepony special to her, she'll do literally anything for them. Her weird, dork-ish self will become more out there. She get's loud and giggly, even flirty (in special cases). She uses her body language as a cue to how she's feelings. Normally she's really calm and laid back, but you should know when she's happy. She get's loud and obnoxious and cracks more than enough jokes. She's normally seen as "the life of the party" when she's in the mood. Gail is very patient to those she loves, extremely stubborn, loyal, and hates to give up. Gail is normally a very busy griffon. She's either practicing for a game, studying for school, or off on some unknown adventure. She uses her smarts for everything. If she doesn't trust her brain, then she won't do anything. She leads with her brain and follows her heart. She uses all her senses to detect any problems, which she learned when she was little. Character Summary: A loyal and sarcastic griffon who likes to show off her quick moves and smart mouth. She's known for being loud, obnoxious, hilarious, cocky, and the biggest dork ever. Outside she's a horrible griffon, but in the inside she a large, sweet, loyal, dorky mess.

    Corva Pardus

    From the album: Requests, Gifts, Commissions

    Another request this time for Pyro's Triad character Corva. A lazy griffon with a perchance for settling all of her problems with some strongly worded letters - aka fists - Corva's going to eventually be running around with the other Triad members as they plod along Long Kong, causing mayhem and trouble when she isn't being lazy. Fun fact: When I read Corva's physical description, I was a bit worried that she'd end up looking like Zelda, one of tacobob's characters. Luckily, Corva's got some very distinctive design choices. I mean, red and orange?! Zelda wouldn't be caught dead in red and orange tattoos. Inkbrand would make sure of that. Corva (c) Pyroblaze
  5. Name: Corva Pardus Sex: Female Age: Young Adult Species: Griffon Eye Color: Gold Character Color: Being part raven and part panther, her fur and feathers are completely black. Mane/Tail: The feathers on the top of her head are styled into messy spikes and are dyed various shades of red. Physique: Despite her personality, she boasts a physique of one that does plenty of exercise. She is quite lean and of average size for griffons her age. She also has multiple tattoos on display, the most distinctive being the starburst-style target around her right eye. The outer shape is a vibrant orange, with the inner one a blood red. Another distinctive tattoo is the fiery snake circling around and making its way up her left leg, with the mouth of the snake open at her neck. Residence: Apartment in Long Kong Occupation: On the surface, she works private security and occasional deliveries, though in reality she is an enforcer for the Triad. Cutie Mark: N/A Unique Traits: Due to the training from her father, and the natural talent she possesses, she has the ability to use almost any item as a weapon. She almost never misses, even able to hit her target by bouncing projectiles like rocks off of walls or other such objects. She doesn't carry much in the way of weaponry herself, just a couple knives typically hidden under her wings. History: Corva is the product of a former Aquilan general for a father, and a simple Long Kong shopkeep for a mother. Her entire life has been spent in and around Long Kong, she was used to the layout and the way the city worked. From as early as he felt he could, her father began training her to become a soldier like him. He was only partially successful on that front, the skills sticking with her even though his ideals were not getting through to her. Still, he kept at it, even as she clearly grew apart from him and drifted more towards her adopted sibling, spending more and more time with them and her friends out on the town. She shirked pretty much everything but exercising and training at the insistence of her sibling, that being she continue training, not shirk stuff. The only other thing she'd really do besides laze about was stuff with friends, such as going out into town and making trouble. Eventually, her parents couldn't take her attitude anymore, kicking her out of the house to fend for herself. That very night, while she was hanging out in a bar, she would meet someone who changed her life. She was already angry when she got there, for obvious reasons, a disposition that wasn't helped by the fact that a drunk stallion immediately began hitting on her. She tried to walk away from the whole thing, but he kept jeering after her and she finally snapped as she reached the pool table. Grabbing one of the balls, she threw it hard, missing him by millimeters. Or, at least that's what appeared to happen at first as the ball ricocheted off a metal pole and struck him right between the eyes as he tried to watch its progress. The stallion was knocked out cold, and Corva left feeling a bit better. The night only went up from there as she was chased down by a mare that had been in the bar as well and suggested she should join the Triad. She did so, being promoted to an enforcer as her skills really came to light over various jobs. She liked the Triad, being paid to cause trouble often times. Personality: Despite her father's attempts to turn her into a soldier like him, Corva ended up being a rather lazy griffon, rarely ever doing anything that didn't involve her sibling or her friends or things she already wanted to do. If not for her sibling's insistence, she likely wouldn't even keep up on her exercise and training. On top of that, she is rather impatient with strangers or really anyone she's not friends with, violence being a fairly common response to problems. Regardless, with her friends and her sibling she is a very laid-back individual, very nice and friendly with them if a bit sarcastic, though she does that with everyone. In truth, her adopted sibling is the only family she has left aside from the Triad, which she considers a sort of pseudofamily. Summary: A lazy, sarcastic griffon that loves to get into trouble with her finely honed skills. Corva can easily lose her patience with others she doesn't care about, occasionally resulting in violence to some degree.
  6. Name: Ashley ‘Ash’ Ravencrest Sex: Male Age: Adult Species: Griffon (Blue Jay/Leopard) Eye Colour: Orange-Red (#FF4500) Coat: Light, Goldish fur with Black patchy spots across it. Feathers: Light Blue (#ADD8E6), feathers cover the majority of his head, interspersed by white feathers as well as bands of black. Physique: Rather tall, as well as toned and muscular from years of exploration and adventure! Residence: Wherever there’s treasure to be found! Though originally hails from Talonopolis. Occupation: Adventurer, Explorer, Travel Guide Author Unique Traits: An Eye For Adventure: Years of adventure and study of ancient ruins have left Ashley with a great sense of where one can find the greatest treasure!...And danger. A knack for knowing the ‘tropes of traps’. After all, there’s only so many rolling boulders you have to run from before you can spot the trigger from a mile away. This combined with his rather unorthodox stint in Celestia’s School for Magically Gifted Unicorns also has taught him quite a few signs of enchanted or cursed treasure. Fortune and Glory: Being a world renowned adventurer means, well, being world renowned! In some places, Ashley is a household name thanks to not only his oft talked about adventures (which still aren’t as popular as a certain Yearling’s stories. Some adventurers seem to have all the luck) but also due to his insightful and entertaining resource books on the people and places of Equestria and beyond. This comes with the reward of having friends in some fairly high places...but also a few enemies in the same. History: Born in Talonopolis and raised by two loving parents, his mother a teacher and his father a smith, Ashley was always an adventurous and excitable griffon. As a grifflet, his father would read him tall tales of adventure and derring-do – certainly not to be confused with Daring Do – much to his mother’s chagrin. She already had trouble getting the boy to sit still in class as it was. He was far less interested in mathematics and science and reading at the time, no the little griff’s passion was in perilous journeys through the streets of Talonopolis or high adventure in their basement or seeking the lost treasure of the local bakery. Wherever his imagination could take him, he would follow! In time, Ashley grew from a young child to a teen, and with him so to did his thirst for adventure and excitement. But with even a bit of age came wisdom. Math, science, history, the things he had mostly shirked as a little grifflet held his interest much more now. Okay, well history and science did for the most part, math was always and forever a boring topic unless applied right. But still, the spark of learning lit the beginning of a roaring flame inside Ashley’s heart. He knew by then that most of the stories he heard as a child were just that, stories. But even so, those stories inspired him! Maybe they weren’t all real. Maybe not every treasure was there to find. But if no one tried to look, how could anyone ever know? As Ashley grew, the young griffon poured himself into a multitude of topics, including magic though griffons weren’t blessed with the gift for magic like unicorns or qilin were. Not just magic itself but the history of it, as well as the history of magical artefacts both abroad and domestic. This, along with study into the mundane history of various locales would surely prove invaluable if he were to be a true blue adventurer someday. This study of magical history would take Ashley out of the confines of Talonopolis to places all around Equestria. It was in the pony capital of Canterlot though where the griffon’s first steps towards becoming the renowned adventurer he always dreamt of becoming began. The griffon’s arrival at Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns was rather strange in and of itself. But his request for enrollment came as even more of a shock. The staff were rather quick to point out to Ashley that he was not, in fact, a Unicorn. To which his reply was a resounding “Well duh”. Still he insisted on being given a chance to enroll. Persistent as he was, eventually they acquiesced and allowed the griffon a chance to prove himself. Being unable to cast magic, the enrollment test was describing the process of particular spells. Showing is much more easy than telling, after all. One particular member of the faculty insisted that the griffon wouldn’t be able to describe even the process of a simple levitation spell. Which of course, Ashley proved them wrong. Rather spectacularly at that. The griffon, with very little trouble, was able to not only describe how each spell worked but map out the spell matrices as well as runes that were often used for capturing said spells as enchantments. There wasn’t much any of the judges could do other than allow the griffon to enroll, even if it was highly unorthodox. Unorthodox or no, Ashley proved to be a dutiful student! His mother was of course very proud and likely was thinking ‘Ugh finally’. When finally he graduated from the school, Ashley dove right for college. Or rather, colleges. There was much he felt he had to learn besides magic and history if he wanted to make his dream of adventure a reality. Archaeology, physics, astrology, astronomy, art, you name it! So much to learn and so little time it always felt like. But it wasn’t as though Ashley wasn’t accustomed to biting off more than he could chew and chewing it anyway. Life just wasn’t as fun if you didn’t find your limits and push past them! Eventually though the griffon settled for an archaeology major and let the rest be for study in his spare time. Deciding that he was finally prepared to make his first steps towards real adventure, the griffon gathered up his funds and bought everything a temple delving archaeologist could need Ropes, lantern oil, food. Even a nice hat!...Which he promptly decided against as hats just weren’t his style he felt. Too cliche! How many adventurers in stories wore hats like that? Always jumping back in to save the hat. Hat or no Ashley sat out to travel the world in search of treasure and mystery! The griffon was met with many successful expeditions, saving relics and sending them off to museums or to the descendants of civilizations that birthed them. Though he had just as many that turned up nothing, but he didn’t count them as failures, no. Until proven otherwise, Ashley wouldn’t ever count a story of treasure as false. This persistence sometimes paid off in the end either in proving himself right or at least winning some friends along the way...and a few enemies too, you can only snatch magical relic out from under thieves noses for so long before they start spouting arch-nemesis speeches at you every time you run into one another. It was on one fateful expedition to Unyasi though, that Ashley met those who would become his lifelong friends. In a dark and remote corner of the Unyasian continent, hunting for a long lost temple, Ashley managed to run into a pair of unicorns who were also seeking the same ancient monument. The two introduced themselves as Translucent Shine and Shimmering Veil, a couple from Stalliongrad, whose families had been adventurers and explorers for generations! Deciding that since they were all looking for the same place and extra pairs of eyes never hurt, the trio sat out into the jungle together. As one would come to expect, the way to the temple was fraught with danger. Not just with the thick vines and territorial beasts that the jungle threw in their path, but the traps and pitfalls that whatever ancient civilization that had built the temple left behind. More than once Ashley saved one of the duo from a log trap or a pitfall, and more than once one of them saved him from darts or snares. The journey was a learning experience for all three of them. While not the first adventure for any of them, it was proving to be one of the more exciting and fun ones they had been on. While dodging traps and creatures, the three waxed poetic about their journeys throughout the world, how much they had seen, and how what they saw only proved how little they had really seen in the world, how much more was truly out there! For as dangerous as the jungle was, the intrepid trio managed to make their way through and find the temple that they had been seeking. The ancient structure was made of alabaster and dolerite and covered with plants and vines from the ages of neglect. Yet in spite of this the structure was far from a state of disrepair. Where it not for the creeping plants and moss that swarmed over the building, one might think that time had stood still for it. Just inside the massive building, the atmosphere changed. Rather than the humid air of the jungle, there was an almost cool and soothing breeze that permeated the dark halls. Ashley’s companions lit up their horns to guide the way. Gosh being a unicorn was handy. Carved into the walls of the temple were designs that mixed both Zebra and Abada style, as well as some that none of them seemed to recognize. Most of the carvings along the outer walls seemed to depict the rituals that likely took place there. Though the ones that graced the inner walls seemed to be the history of the area. Covering the building of the temple, the founding of the village that once surrounded it, the life and death of their great chieftains, the typical sort of thing one would come to find in these sort of places. However a large portion of the wall was left blank, smooth and untouched until a certain point, where the carvings showed a mass exodus from the area. It was hard to say if the wall was purposefully left blank, or if something had expunged it from the wall. Confusing to say the least. Throughout the inner sanctum at the center of the temple were more carvings, though these seemed to be purely decorative they did gently glow with a soft green light. Enchanted, Translucent explained. It really made for a beautiful atmosphere, though likely the enchantment was once much stronger, probably lighting up the whole room. With their mission complete, Ashley sat about documenting their findings, sketching out the temple in their journals, explaining the dangerous trek there, and the beauty of the surrounding area. Both Translucent and Shimmering were impressed with his writing, even going so far as to suggest that he should publish some of it. Something that he had certainly considered before. The trek back through the jungle was much more easy since they were prepared for any traps that might still be active in their path. Though upon their return to civilization, the three began to discuss some things. After such a successful expedition, parting ways so soon would be a downright shame. And so what was a chance encounter in the wilds of Unyasi turned from one adventure into two, and that two into more, and those even more still. Along the way and across the world, Ashley continued compiling stories and descriptions of all the places they had visited. Both the average locales and the perilous places they found themselves. Many would be adventurers or just those looking to learn a little more about the world sought out the books and pamphlets that the griffon published during his travels. Eventually though, like most adventurer couples do, Translucent and Shimmering decided to settle down in Translucent's home city of Stalliongrad. While Ashley wasn’t nearly ready to hang up his lantern yet so to speak, he was ever supportive of his greatest friends’ choice. Even showing up to the birth of their first child, Dawn Valiant, where Translucent named the griffon the foal’s godfather and gave the colt Ashley as a middle name. Later he would show up for their daughter Evershine’s birth as well. With an ever burning passion for adventure and thrills, Ashley still travels throughout the world seeking out lost and hidden places and objects. Doing his best to preserve the ancient knowledge and keep it out of the claws of those that would use it for ill. Now and again you can find him in the larger cities of Equestria, Long Guo, or Neighpon - relaxing, giving the occasional speech, or signing one of his published books. But rarely for long, as soon as the griffon catches hint of a possibly new adventure, he’s fast out the gate. Character Summary/Personality: Ashley is an excitable, friendly, and knowledgeable griffon. Years spent adventuring has given him an open heart and open mind that he uses to try and help others see the wonder of the world around him, and occasionally drag them on an adventure to get their blood flowing. There’s little that keeps Ashley still for long, though you can capture his full attention by telling him a good story. Even hearing about someone’s life experiences can get the griffon to sit down and listen intently. He enjoys when others are willing to tell him about themselves, as everyone has something new to teach. Aside from adventuring, Ashley also writes and publishes two series of books and pamphlets. One for locales such as Poninawa or Polyneighsia, or detailing information about different species or important families, such as Sirens or the Goldplume family in Talonopolis. The other series is more focused around his adventures and the more hidden or out of the way places he’s visited. Some information is often omitted from these, such as their location, as to keep the sanctity of sacred areas safe or what have you. Text Colour: (#FF4500) Poison Joke Reaction: Inverts the cat and bird parts of his body (Leopard Head/Blue Bird Body, same size as usual)

    My griffonsona, who is a tiny griffon. She's the definition of fiesty!
  8. Name: Gwynne Silverbeak Sex: Female Age: Older Middle Aged Species: Griffin Eye colour: Blue Coat: Rust red feathers and grey fur Mane and tail: Gwynne isn’t particularly concerned with appearances, and prefers to keep anything she can trimmed short so it won’t get in the way while she’s on active duty. Physique: Athletic Residence: She has a combined room and office at her family home in Talonopolis, although most the time she resides aboard the Swift Claw Occupation: Airship Captain with the Aquellian Military Cutie Mark: N/A Unique traits: Gwynne has extensive training and experience with unarmed combat and flintlock weapons, as well as a passing familiarity with a wide variety of weapons in general. Though her age does slow her down somewhat, her experience in combat generally makes up for it. Gwynne also has a minor, natural talent for tinkering, which she has never fully developed, but never let fall completely to the side either. She has been known repair devices in the field, or even create minor gadgets on the fly, though such things rarely last for more than a use or two and are dependant on what materials are in the area. History: Most Silverbeak children are encouraged from a young age to tinker, and Gwynne was no exception. Even from a very young age she showed a knack for building small devices, and this activity was encouraged. Over the course of her youth, she made a number of little things, including little toys for herself or her friends, and little devices meant to be useful. That none of them worked quite as intended was seen as beside the point, the desire to create useful things and the will to see her projects through were the more important aspects. It was expected that she would continue down this down, and in doing so carry on the proud traditions of the Silverbeak family, however fate would have other plans. When one day Gwynne learned that one of her friends had been stolen from, and despite her friends insistence that’s not a bit issue Gwynne refuses to leave it alone, and in the process learns that this is not an uncommon occurrence. Successfully tracking him down, Gwynne tried to confront the thief, but she lacked the skills necessary to bring the thief down and after only a brief scuffle she slunk home, with mild injuries. Where another might have seen that as a sign to try a different path however, Gwynne was not done. She was convinced that the cause was sound, dispensing justice and and protecting the less fortunate seemed all the more important, but rather it was she herself where the weakness lay. She became convinced that she would need to become stronger, if she was to fulfil her new purpose. Her habits changed. Though taking some convincing, her parents eventually allowed her to take martial arts. And her tinkering took on a decidedly more combative-bent, with practice armour and weapons being among the projects she gave herself as things to make. The next time Gwynne encountered the thief, a year later, she was prepared to send him packing. The thief left town afterwards, and Gwynne never heard of him again. That did not mark the end of it for Gwynne herself however. The passion to protect and to combat evil remained strong. She enlisted in the Aquellian military as soon as she came of age. Though eligible for a basic level of officer’s training, at her own insistence her first year was spent as a basic infantry, after which her commanding officer successfully convinced her to set her sights higher. She qualified to become a low level commander, and while her performance tended more toward adequate than exceptional, she was well liked by soldiers placed under her command both for her desires to keep her troops safe and her willingness to take to the frontlines alongside them. Her career from there consisted of a slow, but steady advancement. Gwynne’s latest post is something she did put a little more effort into achieving: captain of the Swift Claw, a vessel in the Aquellian Air Fleet stationed at Talonopolis. Captaining a ship has given her a unique outlet for her tinkering, which remains as a hobby. She has enough clout and history in the military to have autonomy over the ship, which has allowed her to implement a number of components and devices built by Silverbeaks, a number of which Gwynne herself has helped develop. Though as she is ver safety conscious, she has put each through very rigorous testing. Personality/Summary: Gwynne is a soldier, both in terms of profession and in terms of mindset. Though her perspective and attitudes have changed over the years, she never lost her conviction for protecting those that can’t protect themselves, and stopping as much harm as she could from occurring. She is a stalwart griffon both on and off the field, refusing to back down from a point she commits herself to whether against enemies in combat or friends in conversation. Gwynne’s military mindset can be both a great strength and a great flaw. She can react and analyze a situation quickly, but her thinking tends to have a combative leaning. She has a subconscious tendency to think of everyone in terms of allies and enemies, even where more nuanced social roles might be appropriate. Her inability to accept sacrifices, born out of her desire to protect others, has limited her potential for advancement as a commander. A cunning opponent can potentially force her to make a choice she can’t face, or manipulate her into worse strategic positions, though she is intelligent enough to avoid obvious traps. Additional Notes: Gwynne is the adoptive mother of Bevel after her parents' passing. The griffin tried to do her best for the pony but a) couldn’t stop seeing her as weak and vulnerable and b) is a military griffin at heart and doesn’t really know how to raise a child, let alone one of a different species. [Last I checked, I have permission for this relation to Bevel]
  9. Name: Diamond "L'Ombre" Dust Sex: Male Age: Adult Species: Griffon Eye Color: His eyes are a deep blue in color. Character Color: Diamond is a colorful griffon, with his bird half almost like a parrot. His feathers are mostly red in color, though they turn into blues and greens as they go down his wings. He also has a couple blue and green feathers on top of his head, though they are slicked back like the rest of his feathers. His cat half is less colorful, being a solid black like a panther. Physique: Diamond's a bit smaller than most griffons, though not really by that much. He sports a lithe body due to the kind of exercise he gets in his line of work. Residence: An apartment in Calnais. Occupation: Professional thief Cutie Mark: Not applicable Unique Traits: Diamond is very proficient in lockpicking and stealth, as well as the use of rapiers and his cane. He typically wears a red suit with a blue undershirt when not on the job, donning a black bodysuit that covers everything but his eyes when he goes to steal something. His cane actually hides a rapier inside it, the handle being the top of the cane. He is fluent in both Prench and Equestrian. History: Diamond never really knew what happened to his biological parents, but his adoptive parents, a couple of earth ponies, were very nice to grow up around. They had found him outside their door one night, and decided to take him in and give him a name. These two ponies were just low-level workers around the city of Calnais, meaning Diamond grew up knowing what it was to be poor. He had wanted to help them out for as long as he could remember, so eventually he took to petty thefts, some food here or there or a bit of money. Whatever it was, it was only used to help keep his family fed. As he got older he began to steal larger and more expensive things, like jewelry or art, spreading the bounty out among the poor after he sold the item. He would give away easily half his haul, and he found that he very much enjoyed the work. It was around then that he decided to do that for his life, eventually moving into his own apartment. He hoped to eventually get an actual house, but that was for later. Personality: Diamond is a bit of a flirt, almost garunteed to try and woo every female he meets. If they're already taken he'll leave them alone on that front though. He is also rather nice, and is rarely very serious about anything. He does not see his thievery as work, especially since he rarely actually takes a job for it. Also, as Prench is his first language, he often times slips into speaking it without realizing it, saying a few Prench words in the middle of an Equestrian sentence, for example. Summary: A gentleman thief meets Robin Hood type of griffon, Diamond is making his way through life and helping others in the process.
  10. Name: Gash (Hot Rod, Hotty, Glider) Sex: Female Age: Teenager (15 in human years) Species: Griffon (Golden Eagle and Lioness) Eye Color: Teal-ish Blue Coat: Her lion part is a pale yellow with a white strip on her stomach, underneath her tail, and underneath her paws. Mane/Tail: Since she's a griffon, she doesn't have a mane, but she does have a bird head. It's base is a golden brown with a reddish brown around her eyes and under her beak. She also has a bright orange on the back of her head and at the tip of her feathers. Her feathers are all rough in the front, showing her three white spots in between her eyes. Her tail is a normal lion tail with a reddish brown for the fur. Physique: Tall, slender. She is very light and a little underweight. Her legs are thinner than the average griffon, but they are also longer, making her a little shorter than Princess Celestia. Her wings are a lot larger than the average griffon, as well as her tail being longer. Residence: She doesn't really live anywhere per say, but she's normally found in Canterlot or Ponyville. She always dozing off on clouds during the day. Occupation: Gash is a racer in the air. She also plays a majority of other sports. She's young so she doesn't have a specific job. Cutie Mark: She's a griffon, she doesn't have one. Unique Traits: Gash's wings are everything special. They are the things that carry her through the sky, quickly flapping to keep her form perfect. Her wings are always angled perfectly, making her spin in the sky, do flips, and keep her balance to show off her quick moves. Gash's wings are larger than the average griffon's, making it a little harder to control them, but they still keep up with her in advance. She is also extremely smart. She can get herself out of a pickle quite quickly, using her time to think of an option. She can read and write very well, and uses her words rather appropriately. She does tend to over think tons of things though, which makes her get frustrated easily. She isn't the most patient. History: Gash was born into a nonfunctioning family in Griffonstone. Her mother (a short, stubby unicorn) grew up with being surrounded with makeup and trying to be pretty, while her father (a tall, muscular griffon) grew up with loving to kill bugs and small, unwanted rodents. Gash was also born with a twin sister (a artsy, skinny unicorn) who turned out to be the complete opposite of her. Her parents were surprised that her and her twin came out as two completely different species, especially since they were living in Griffonstone, so her mother gave both the girls a griffon name and a pony name. Gash was Gash's griffon name, and Hot Rod was her pony name. Their parents taught them the basics of manners at a young age, making them known as the best younglings in the family because of all the problems going on. The two cuties never knew of the problems going on in the family, so they never were open to all the bad things in Equestria. They always thought everything was bright with rainbows and happiness. All of that came crashing down when their little sister was born. When Gash was 2 years old, she always used to all of the attention that she got when she was little. Her fellow griffon community would always say how cute and well mannered she was, but when her little sister was born, all of the attention went to her sister. Gash grew to become jealous over every little thing her little sister did. Her parents were also not paying attention to her, so Gash became a little brat, wanting some sort of attention, even if it was bad. Soon enough, Gash's parents became over protective of their children, never wanting them to go outside into the world because of how "special" they were, even if she was a brat. They were afraid that their little twins and foal would get captured by a stranger. So Gash was always staring at a wall in her bedroom for a few years until her parents decided it was time to move to a different part of Equestria. When she was 6 years old, they moved into a much bigger house in Canterlot. The sudden change from a dark, small town to a bright, large city scared her a little bit. Not only was the setting changed, every pony looked different. They were more posh instead of dark and gloomy. They were ponies, not griffons. Her and her family looked to be the only mix-matched family, which scared her. She went from a well mannered foal, to a bratty filly, now to a shy, introverted cub in just a matter of a few years. So finally when they put their large house together, unboxing all their stuff, school started for her and her sister. Gash was absolutely terrified; the thought of meeting new ponies scared her. She was nothing like them. They were all bright and happy with gorgeous, perfect manes. Gash was the complete opposite. She was dirty and had messy feathers, looking like she had rolled in the dirt then jumped into a well. She didn't wanna show up to school looking like the inside of a full trash can. So on the first day of school, she woke up extra early to try and look nice. She brushed her feathers, or tried to, which ended up looking like a cat attacked her head. So she just tied her messy feathers into pigtails, which looked pretty good on her. She then curled the tip of her tail, making it look extra nice to that when ponies were looking at her from behind, all they could see was her perfectly curled tail. For a six year old, it worked out perfectly. Gash didn't think she looked nice enough though, so she decided to put on some black eye shadow. It ended up all over her eyes, but she thought it looked perfect. When she got to school, every pony was staring at her. On the outside she was giving out fake smiles and waves, but on the inside she was freaking out. She was scared that somepony would walk up to her and start talking. She's never actually had a full on conversation before from somepony other than her family. Finally a group of fillies walked up to her and started talking. Gash took a breath and started responding to their questions about her, and she finally calmed down. They weren't making fun of her, they were saying how great she looked instead! She was still incredibly introverted, but at least she had friends. Gash became pretty popular, until she became a teenager. At the age 13, Hot Rod's parents decided to go out and move again. Gash was heart broken, having to lose all her friends that she had grown up with over the years. She became depressed, but that didn't stop her parents from moving anyway. They ended up in Ponyville, the small town below Canterlot. Once again, Gash was scared of starting at a new school, especially because she hadn't seen any griffons there. Her fears soon went away though as she was met with nice ponies who quickly went over to her and became her friend, just like Canterlot. Of course she had the minor bullies that would bully her for her looks and being different (which she now fears), but she tried her best to ignore them. She was still super shy, always waiting for somepony to walk up to her and talk, but she loved talking to others. Now we're in the present, knowing what she wanted to do with her life as of now. She races in the air and does sports for others entertainment. Character Personality: Gash is a shy, hotheaded griffon, at first glance. She is quite confusing to know, because one second she's super sweet, and the next she's yelling at you for being annoying. Her brain is completely different from others. She over thinks everything, like thinking how a certain outcome would happen in a situation then going too deep into it, causing her to freak out. She has horrible anxiety, which makes her decisions on things very hard for her to accomplish. She is terrified of walking up to others and talking, but she quite enjoys talking to others for their opinions on things. Gash basically has two personalities. One for the outside and one for the inside. On the outside, Gash comes out as a headstrong, rude, angry griffon, just like her species's stereotypes. She tries to act cool and not care about what others are saying. She brushes everything off like it's not happening, while trying to be as calm as possible. She tries to be laid back, wanting everypony to see her as awesome and chill, she wants to fit in, which causes her to lie a lot. Gash tries to make stupid jokes all the time, trying to make others laugh and like her, but she isn't trustful. She is also very flirty, wanting to grab anyone's attention that she finds attractive. She is quite literally a bully in some aspects though. But on the inside (or reality) she is absolutely terrified of almost everything. This is when her anxiety comes along. She is shy, super nice and sweet, and is extremely sensitive. She only shows this side when she knows the other pony/creature really well and is comfortable around them, but is scared to show this side to others. She is super scared of being judged negatively. Gash is really smart and doesn't give up when she knows something is wrong. She is pretty upbeat and funny, always finding something to laugh at. Some bad things about her is that she lies a lot. Every thing she lies about though is to hide something she doesn't like about herself. She has very low confidence and can be found as annoying and bratty. She complains about everything she finds wrong, like a little child. She tries to be funny in unnecessary situations, like when somepony is upset, and to be funny, she makes fun of the situation like it's nothing. She's pretty intense in the way she says things, like her tone of voice. Gash is also very impatient. She can't stand when others take forever walking down a street or taking forever to respond to something she's said. She is really just a typical teenager. Summery: A griffon who uses her speed and coolness to get along through the day. She has a golden personality in the inside, but is afraid to show it.

    Messy sketch time! My take on what I imagine human!Zelda looks like. Note that this is just my own artistic interpretation. I feel like she would have a very elegant look to her, with a defined jawline, high cheekbones, and a long neck. But also with an edgy sort of haircut, the sort that only a select few people can manage to pull off without looking ridiculous. Zelda © Tacobob

    Like I'm sure many artists do, I tend to feel validated when people comment on art pieces I upload. Personally, I really enjoy getting "Like"s on Canterlot.com. Not sure why, I just like 'em (ahaha get it seewhatIdidthar) Anyways, there are a few people who almost always drop off a "Like" on pretty much anything I upload to my gallery, and this is a thank you to one whose characters I've never drawn before. The pose was a pain to get right, but aside from that, the rest was fun to draw. The head gave me trouble though - was trying to make the tufts cat-like without being too cat-like, to mimic Hawkeye12's own reference picture. Hawkeye © Hawkeye12

    Probably seen this on the side bar now, but this is a larger image of the same. Enjoyed making this; the challenge was to get as many species as I could without it becoming cluttered when shrunk to sidebar size. For the curious, the reason for no yaks was the picture was completed before Party Pooped came out. Why Cheerilee? I always imagined her as the tourist type, going on trips (mostly in the summer) to various places in Equestria, collecting images and souvenirs for herself and for future school lessons.

  16. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Tarisio Mercutio Goldplume Sex: Male Age: Young Adult Species: Griffon Eye Colour: Gold (#FFDF00) with flecks of Silver (#CCCCCC) in the right light. Coat: Silky black fur with darker spots. Mane/Tail: Raven Black Feathers (#141A16), with Crimson Red Feathers (#DC143C) around the Eyes and the first pinions on each wing. Feathers on the top of his head sweep forward and slightly downward. Physique: Slim, toned body, slightly taller than average, handsomely built. Residence: Formerly Talonopolis. Occupation: Sky Pirate. History: Tarisio was born to a wealthy family in Talonopolis, and as a young griffon he was rather the little rapscallion. Always getting into mischief, though any real trouble that he got into was quickly covered up by his parents, usually by them buying his way out of it. As a young child, he would often wander the more run-down side of the city, making friends with the orphans and other 'riff-raff' there, stealing from passersby, pulling pranks on the citizenry, or just generally having a good time. As he grew into his teens, Tarisio became quite the young gentleman. Though he would still run with his, as his parents would say unscrupulous friends, he would often stop to woo the ladies with his charming looks, golden eyes, and silver tongue. Be they taken or not, which would often lead him on daring chases and many a fight. His parents of course, were never too happy with this, and tried many times to make the boy settle down. Hiring at home tutours, having him take violin lessons, putting him to work in the family-owned museum, anything to keep the boy from his less than stellar behaviour. But while it did make it harder to, it didn't stop Tarisio from doing what he did best. For that matter, the fact his parents had tried to keep him tied down drove his wanderlust. And in secret he began to study swordplay and piracy. It would be the best way to satisfy his craving for adventure. It would be a few years later that his family had came into possession of a decommissioned and refurbished military airship. A large and beautiful vessel adorned in silver and gold. Likely something used in the Royalty's own army. He knew that now was the time. His dream would soon be a reality. Sneaking out in the dead of night, Tarisio met in secret with his soon to be crew, the orphans and other children he spent his childhood with, and together they stole away into the museum and made away with their grand prize, the airship was now dubbed 'The Zephyr's Kiss' by Tarisio, her new captain. Escaping late at night was easier than during the day, but they knew they couldn't stop moving for a while. It was a few weeks later before they could finally dock, get some dinner, and a drink or five. Wandering into the local tavern, an unsavoury sight caught his eye. A fight in the corner of the bar was beginning to break out as four griffons angrily surrounded a fifth. Knowing that this was not a fair fight in the least, Tarisio immediately made his way over to the crowd, pushing past the four to stand next to the outnumbered griffon. Who, after some protest and aid in sending the attackers packing, was reluctantly grateful for Tarisio's help. Introducing herself as Minerva, the two griffons took to the bar and drank their fill. Talking through the evening as more of his crew finally arrived after dinner. With a grin on his face, Tarisio offered Minerva a spot on his crew. To which she agreed, on the condition SHE got to be first mate. The Captain agreed, and five years later, the crew of The Zephyr's Kiss is still going strong. Sailing the winds, stealing gold and hearts as they please. Character Summary: Tarisio's passions don't involve stealing and unlawful activities alone. Despite being forced into it, Tarisio loves the violin, often playing it on deck to entertain his crew while they work. While he often keeps his disdain for laws quiet, when one speaks to him about it, he'll often spit on the ground, saying that 'We're not bound by laws here. No one rules the sky, and like it, we are free.'. Despite being unlawful, the griffon couldn't be considered evil, he stands by his own personal code of honour. Never laying a claw on a child and doing everything he can to avoid fighting with women, oft times choosing to smooth talk his way out of a fight. Though this should not be mistaken for weakness, as Tarisio can certainly hold his own, both sword and claw, against most opponents. Additional Info: Wears a red 'steampunk' style vest, with intricate latticework designs across it. Poison Joke Reaction: Becomes meek and shy, especially around those he finds attractive. Font Colour:(#4682B4)

  20. RP Type: World of Equestria Name: Raven Duskwing (just don't call her "catbird" or "birdie.") Sex: Female Age: Young Adult Species: Griffon Eye Color: Dark Purple Coat: A Blueish Black. The tips of raven's feathers on her wings and the tips of feathers on her head are blue as is a blue around her eyes. Physique: Raven possesses a primarily black panther body with raven-like wings, talons, and head. Her sleek body makes her agile on land, able to leap great distances with ease. She is also a good flier, having both speed and agility. Residence: Cloudsdale Occupation: Part of the weather team, specializing in thunder clouds. History: Born in Rockwington, Raven's parents showered her with lots of love and attention to their only daughter. Her mother was a teacher while her father was a historian learning about the culture of the ponies that lived in Equestria.They knew that at even a young age the griffon was very introverted, preferring to keep to herself and avoid large crowds or loud noises which disturbed her. This made her time in school difficult with making friends as others believed that she was simply uninterested in getting to know them. The issue wasn't fixed quickly, but through time and maturing Raven learned to open up more and become more sociable. The classmates in turn saw that she was a wealth of information and someone to turn to for advice. Ever since she was a young chick, Raven became fascinated by the tales told by her father regarding what was across the Painted Pinto Desert, places where ponies roamed. She learned from him about the history and culture of the ponies, and the more she learned the more she desired to meet them. Raven was especially interested in magic, the kind that ponies possessed, learning it as a hobby of hers. Sadly being a griffon she could not perform the magic like ponies did but it was still enjoying to learn as much as she could. One of the things that did benefit her was learning meditation to calm herself in tense situations and help her focus on any task that she needed to do. When she was old enough, she bid her parents farewell and decided to make a new life for herself. Crossing the desert she eventually made her way to Cloudsdale, a place that was not overly populated and was intriguing to the griffon being a floating cloud city. Of course moving on to a new place meant that she had to find a job. She heard from her father once about how Pegesai could move clouds around, so she decided to try her skill at this. Even though she is not adept at moving clouds like the other ponies, she is not afraid to do the dangerous jobs like moving the storm clouds to where they need to be. At first she wondered if leaving her home and her parents and friends she grew so attached to was a good idea, especially the way ponies looked at her, thinking as an untruthful or intimidating pony. Yet overtime she tried her best to fit in to the predominately pony city. There were still those who were leery around her, but Raven is as she was determined to show ponies her true side and to learn about the new world she now lives in. Character Summary: Raven can be described as a very calm emotionally restrained individual. She rarely gets excited or angry about things happening around her and has the ability to shrug off most things that would affect others. Her voice is very deadpan, only showing slight changes in emotions. There some who see her personality as being secretive or that she is uninterested, which only adds to her dark imposing appearance. This is far from the truth, as she wants to make as many friends as possible. Once Raven gets to know somepony and established their trust she will stand by them. There are some ponies or other species that she cannot stand like those that are constantly hyperactive or are negative, and to these she will do her best to ignore them. Raven is a very smart griffon, reading anything she can get her talons on and having a well stocked library in her home. She finds reading to take her mind off of the cares of the day and allows her to remain calm. Although not a unicorn she fancies books on magic just to read. In addition to reading, she likes learning about other ponies, meditating, flying, and the night sky. She prefers to stay away from large crowds where she feels constrained and uncomfortable. Ponies that consider her threatening or generally bad also upset her even though she does not often try to show this. Overall Raven Duskwing seeks to make friends with the ponies while helping them however she can.
  21. The sun rose high in the Appleoosan Desert sky, it's fierce rays casting the enormous shadow of a large winged creature against the sandy wasteland and his massive wingspan carried his from across the sandy expanse. A squinted look up at the high flying character would reveal the silhouette of a griffon, his exact form and coloration blocked out by the bright light of the sun. After flying a great deal of distance across the desert, he descended dramatically, towards the ground. With one large flap of his black wings, he landed relatively cleanly in the sand outside a deserted town. The griffon was clad in a nearly uniform set of black that started at the tip of his long wiry tail and drifted all the way through his wings and torso. His head was covered in silver feathers, a large sharp black beak protruding from his face as his keen yellow eyes looked over the abandoned town that stood before him, defiant against the seemingly endless heat of the area. He raised a black talon from the ground and shuffled it through the large brown backpack that was fastened around his neck. After a few short moments of fishing about, he plucked a map out of his bag, the griffon carefully unfolding it as he looked at what seemed to be a detailed representation of this particular portion of Equestria. He quickly spotted Appleoosa, a nearby town, the hybrid trailing a claw up the map as he searched for his location. "Dullahan Springs, also classified as a ghost town. I probably wouldn't want to live in a town with a name like that either," the griffon commented with a light shiver of his neck as he looked the map over one last time. "It is strange though, this is the only abandoned town that is listed as a ghost town, I'll have to go tell the map maker about the minor inconsistency when I get back to Canterlot," he explained to nobody in particular, the griffon slipping the map back into his back pack as he thought about entering the shady looking town.
  22. Roleplay Area: World of Equestria Name: Maverick Sex: Male Age: Young Adult Species: Griffon Eye color: Blue Coat color: Regular half lion and eagle half. Feathers are mostly white except for the feathers on his head which are pushed to one side and have red tips. Mane/Tail: Tail is a regular brown. His feathers on his head start off white and have red tips. He always wears a pink seashell necklace around his neck. Physique: He is a slender griffon. He is lean but not muscular. Residence: Born and raised in Rockwington. Once he was of age he moved out and currently lives in a small beach cottage on the sea of Baltimare. Occupation: He teaches all types of species the art of surfing. He also participates in the local surfing contests and sometimes sells the shells he finds on the beach. Cutie Mark: N/A History: Born in Rockwington the little Griffon was just like all the other griffons. He acted and behaved just like them. That was until he and his parents decided to take a trip to..none other than Baltimare! The beach city was seen as a perfect place for the family to go. Once they got there the young Maverick seemed to never want to get out of the water. He seemed to love the taste of saltwater, no matter how bad it was for him. His parents were just happy to see him so happy. When the griffon was splashing around in the shallow part of the beach he noticed the number of seashells on the sandy floor. He picked up a few and gave them to his parents as a gift. And pretty much right after that moment the little Maverick noticed something going on out there on the other end of the beach. It seemed like some kind of festival or something. All he really realized was he saw a few ponies ,and even a zebra and griffon or two, out on the ocean on these..long boards racing along the waves. Maverick thought what they were doing looked like so much fun! He wanted to try! But he didn't have on of those boards. So he pleaded to his parents, who eventually caved and went a bought him a beginner board that wasn't the same as the board he wanted. But he didn't care. After that the griffon spent hours, upon hours out there. Constantly falling and getting mouthful after mouthful of salt water and sand in his beak. But he didn't care how long it would take him, he was determined to be as good as the surfers he saw earlier. And good he got. In the three days he had the board he had learned the basics from trying to mimic the moves of those he remembered or even saw. He actually got a few pointers from the stallions on the beach that had participated in the contest. But the dreaded time came. The time for the trio to return to their home. The young Maverick was sad he had to leave yes, but he was happy knowing that he would be back. The years passed and Maverick finally came of age to where his parents thought he would be fine to live on his own. So they proposed he move out and in an instant he shouted he wanted to move to Baltimare and live on the beach. So with his parents help they got some money and before he knew it he was living in his own house on the beach. It was great. Even though he lives by himself he still sees his parents. They come down and visit him a few times when they want to. The griffon is still new to living alone but he will get used to it. Besides, now that he is alone he has started giving lessons to those who want to learn the art of surfing. He makes a few bits off of doing that but usually he doesn't charge teaching what he loves. He likes to sell the shells he finds. He still wears the new shell necklace he made for himself. He will never sell that shell. The griffon is trying to get into the business of learning how to make surfboards. He has the one he bought from the local surf shop..but he feels like he would be more of a true surfer if he made his own board. Maverick still has a lot to look forward to in life. He is ready to face what comes at him head on with confidence. Because life for Maverick...is TOTALLY GNARLY DUDE. Personality: Maverick quite possibly is the most fun loving and easy going griffon a pony or zebra will ever meet. He never seems to get angry and always seems to cope well. He is a different griffon being that he doesn't reside in the Griffon Kingdom. He was born there and all, he just chose to move to out on his own. When one speaks to Maverick he always seems to speak in a calm and slow voice. His vocabulary consists of many different terms one would not usually hear on a daily basis. Such as "Gnarly" or "Bodacious" any many many more. The griffon adopted these new words living on the beach of Baltimare. Since Maverick is easy going he is quite easy to get along with. His sense of humor is just a normal one so jokes in conversation will make him laugh. His semi slow speaking makes for his conversations to take a while. But since he has been talking like that his whole life he can't tell he takes a while to get a story out. He has a large amount of zest for life. Everyday for him is different on account of how the ocean will behave. When a day a comes with bad waves Maverick will often either sit inside his wooden home and do nothing or just find something to occupy his time. Maverick has his faults as well. Due to really only knowing surfing, when he can't surf he will often become bored very quickly. He is easily distracted as well and can often forget what he was talking about mid sentence. Now the biggest fault of Maverick is the fact that he just bottles up his emotions. All of them except for happiness. Whenever something makes him angry or sad he will literally do his best to just forget about it and move on. He doesn't like to let himself get angry or sad. But bottling up your emotions is never good.
  23. Name: Norton Breakbeak (The First) Gender: Male Age: Adult, middle-aged Species: Griffon Eye colour: Auburn, flecked with gold. Character colour: His bird half is that of a bald eagle, with white feathers making for a smooth round head, while the wings are, by contrast, black. The cat half is a mountain lion, with the golden-brown fur common to the kind. Other: He has cultivated a truly magnificent mustache for a griffon. It is dark grey and full-bodied with waxed, curly tips. Physique: His tour in the Aquellian Marines has left him with a basically sound body which has not run to fat, though it is a little slower than it used to be. Residence: Breakbeak City, though he often calls it his Imperial Capital Occupation: Self-declared Emperor. He lives off his medical discharge pay. History: Norton Breakbeak was born to a moderately well-off family from the Clopton shores, or at least well-off for the area. The family were one of the few permanent residents of the place, and kept a small shop for the vacationers when they came, and spent the rest of the time fishing and tending to a small vineyard. Young Norton was the youngest of several chicks, and worked happily on such tasks as fell to the youngest son. Mostly, it was in keeping the shopfront clean, neat, and attractive, which he did with aplomb. He had an inclination for cleanliness and neatness, as it happened; his parents never had to force him to bathe or clean his room, which slightly worried them. Aside from these early idiosyncrasies, Norton had more or less a normal childhood, full of the small adventures than any young griffon might get into in a small coastal town. Like most of the young ones, he always admired the Marines when they came down on vacation, or on training exercises. Seeing them parade about and swagger in their dress uniforms was a real treat for him, and he would often hide close by whenever a squadron came down to the coasts in uniform.​ One day, he even got up a facsimile of a uniform from various hand-me downs, washed pale and worn, but hemmed to neatness by an indulgent mother, and surreptitiously inserted himself at the end of a row of Marines presenting themselves for inspection upon the beach. The sergeant was not a griffon without humor, and went along with 'joke,' including the young Norton in the exercises, where the rest of the squadron more or less adopted him as a mascot. It wasn't quite according to regulations, but the officer was away, and central command was very far away, so what could be the harm? Norton came home that day announcing his intention to join the Marines, making his parents quite proud. His father even went so far as to see if the young lad could be put into some kind of Officer's training, and directed Norton's remaining education to that goal. It was a success; Norton was accepted to the Military Academy in Talonopolis, and the whole town showed up to see him off. While he wasn't the most brilliant student at the Academy, his diligence and particularity had a way of endearing him to instructors, and he was always willing to lend his classmates a hand if they were struggling. In the end, he got his commission and first assignment in a mountain outpost unit, guarding the Talonopolis Canyon against monster incursions. He served well, eventually earning a promotion to Captain, and was then reassigned to a Desert Patrol unit, which would clear out any bandits that threatened the borders of Aquellia. Unfortunately, the patrol turned out to be a complete disaster. The major in charge of the unit was inexperienced in desert travel, and most of the rest were just as green as him. The unit got lost, and found themselves stranded without water and in need of rescue themselves. Norton, along with quite a few others, was suffering from severe heatstroke, and was served with a medical discharge.He took to wandering after that, not quite right in the head anymore. There weren't many places that a griffon could live on a Captain's three-quarters pay, but Breakbeak city was one of them. He took a small lodging, in a room above a worker's diner, and spent the next few years living quietly, practically as a recluse. Most of his day was spent in reading every paper and book that came from Aquellia, or in taking exercise flights around the city. Nopony or griffon in the city, then, paid him any much mind until they opened their morning newspapers to be greeted with this astonishing letter, which Norton had sent in to every paper in Equestria and Aquellia that would print it: Needless to say, no one reading that was entirely certain what to make of it. The first question on the muzzles and beaks of all readers was "Just who is this Norton Breakbeak?" He wasn't hard for them to find. Perched on the balcony of the only building on the street which had all the industrial soot scrubbed off of it was Norton I, in all his finery (purchased from the local pawnshop.) In the weeks and months that followed, the astonished populace awoke to the fact that, no, Norton was not joking; he really thought of himself as the Emperor, albeit one still in need of solidifying his position. Second, this "Emperor" seemed to believe that the bustling, dirty, workaday depot city of Breakbeak was really one of Equestria's great metropolises, which neglect had allowed to fall into a state of decay, which he proposed, by Imperial edict, to remedy. He would write to newspapers, and show up in full regalia to town council meetings with propositions and plans of action, surprisingly well-thought out, for "restoring the Imperial Seat." While nopoony or griffon in the city takes him seriously, and none outside seem to have acknowledged him yet, the consensus is that "The old fellow's mostly harmless, bit of a laugh really, and he does care enough to keep his stoop clean. Heck, he'll clean yours if you call him 'Your Imperial Majesty,' and promise to take care of it after." In fact, he's already made a marked improvement of the street he lives on... Character Summary: Obviously, he has quite huge delusion of Grandeur, though whether this is a holdover from his heatstroke, some new madness bred of isolation, or a very elaborate plan of some kind is not possible for the outsider to tell. His family hasn't yet heard of his new calling in life, and it isn't certain what they'd do if they found out. Besides this one spot of madness on his brain, however, he's a surprisingly clear thinker. He's well-read up on things happening at home, and is quite adept at summing up the situation and providing an opinion upon it, though political matters soon segue back into a recommendation of his own Imperial Person. In his daily habits, he is as scrupulously clean as he ever was, keeping his living quarters neat spotless, which is an endless battle against dust and soot in Breakbeak city. He calls it "A noble war against dirt and degradation." His manners are good, if somewhat in the military manner, and he treats his own secondhand regalia with all the respect due to his old dress uniform in the marines. His routine will vary from day to day, but he gets out quite a bit more than he used to, parading himself in finery around his "domains," which are pretty much any business that won't bar themselves to harmless lunatic. He also "holds court" in the diner below his apartment, talking to any bemused patron who has a few minutes to spare. Oddly enough, he's one of the most enthusiastic patriots that his adopted city has. Emperor or no, he'll work with his own claws on any city improvement project, and propose a dozen more to any who will listen. He's currently working on a grand plan to make Breakbeak city worthy of housing an Emperor, and there are some quite good ideas in there, mixed with more outlandish proposals.
  24. DISCLAIMER: This is the WoE version of an OC I developed for CC. Roleplay Type: WoE Name: Prof. Morianna Razorclaw Gender: Female Age: Elderly Species: Griffon Eye color: Red Character color: Morianna's head is covered in pale gray feathers, her fur is white, and her wings are a dark shade of black. Mane/Tail/Other: A double crest of slate black feathers crowns the griffon's head in the manner of a Harpy Eagle, while her tail is like that of a lion's. Morianna's beak is the same slate black color as her crest. Physique: Prof. Razorclaw is noticeably taller than most griffons, although her body is only of average bulkiness. Despite her advanced age, constant physical activity and Aqueliia's best medical care prevent Morianna's body from going frail. Residence: Talonopolis Occupation: Honorary Professor of Foreign Affairs at the Aquellia Academy, self-appointed representative of the Razorclaw family. Unique Traits: The elderly Razorclaw is rarely seen not wearing her usual attire; a fancy blue coat accompanied by a white cravat. The griffoness also keeps a well-polished wood cane with a silver handle with her at all times, despite the fact that she is in no way infirm. While her look is old-fashioned, Morianna believes such a fashion statement emphasizes the noble majesty and prestigious history of the powerful Razorclaw family. History: A daughter of the proud Razorclaw family of Aquellia, young Morianna enjoyed a life of immense wealth and privilege in Talonopolis. The chick had a sharp mind even at an early age; once her cognitive abilities developed sufficiently, she didn’t take long to figure out that her family was the most politically and militarily powerful of the three dominant families within the griffon nation. Putting her genius level intellect to work, the budding griffoness sought out knowledge concerning every manner of political subject, foreign policy grabbing her interest the most. Morianna’s interests pleased her family very much so, and so they hired the most gifted political scientists in Aquellia they could obtain to be the chick’s tutors. Believing herself superior over everyone else in her age group, Miss Razorclaw only associated with griffons her age as much as she deemed fit to increase her own popularity, and she felt no shame over bullying those she deemed annoying. Despite her lack of friends, Morianna excelled spectacularly in her studies, and the griffoness went on to graduate summa cum laude from the Aquellia Academy’s Foreign Affairs program. And even before earning her degree, the griffoness was already earning work experience in Aquellia’s foreign ministry offices in Talonopolis, learning firsthand the art of promoting her nation’s interests abroad. As the griffoness advanced in age, so did her prominence in the Razorclaw family and publicly in Aquellia. For her devoted service to the public good, Morianna’s alma mater awarded her with a honorary doctorate…and the privilege to lecture at the Academy and address herself as Professor Morianna Razorclaw. The feisty professor also devoted more of her time towards influencing the affairs of her own clan. Through sheer force of will and her insistence to represent her family in all public and private occasions, the elderly Prof. Razorclaw now acts as a de facto matriarch for her kin, although plenty of other Razorclaws may argue otherwise. For the time being however, only Morianna believes that she has what it takes to lead the Razorclaw family to further greatness..... Character Summary: To most people, Prof. Razorclaw is most famous for her incendiary lectures and editorials about political philosophy. At their core, Morianna’s teachings chastise governments who honor foolhardy idealism before sensible pragmaticism, and they all too frequently call out Equestria as a poor model of how to run a kingdom. The professor is more than happy to engage in debates to argue her views… and to break every rule of debating in order to achieve an unquestionably-decisive victory. In her mind, the most articulate and outspoken voice always prevails over the inferior rule-abiding side. Morianna Razorclaw deals with her fellow griffons and other people in a cold, calculated manner. It is not the professor’s policy to provide anyone with any tiny tidbit of warmth and kindness; in nearly all dealings, she acts with anywhere between a strict solemn formality and a seething anger depending on her mood. In every aspect of her life, Morianna must maintain a state of absolute perfection through meticulous organization and the achievement of her goals as planned; when things don’t go her way at all, the griffoness can be provoked into a livid fury. Once the griffoness calms down, she’ll then rationalize unfortunate events as the result of incompetence from other griffons and not from her own errors, thus re-establishing her internal vision of perfection. Having never spent any time towards finding someone to love or befriend, the professor channels her nurturing desires towards her nieces and nephews in her clan. Morianna takes it upon herself to mentor the next generation of Razorclaws towards promising political and military careers. In addition, she’s also more than willing to personally instruct offspring of the two other ruling families of Aquellia; the Goldplumes and the Silverbeaks. Prof. Razorclaw does not want to leave the fate of her beloved republic to chance; by imposing her philosophies upon them, she can rest easy knowing that in time they’ll also become avatars of perfection. When she has time to spare, Morianna pursues the growth of her vast personal collection of priceless art and exotic wildlife. Like other elite-minded people, Prof. Razorclaw views the ownership of such things as an indisputable mark of prestige, and will go through any lengths to acquire more. Unlike most griffons, the professor insists on eating a meat-rich diet; she believes that those who rely on grains for substance betray the true predatory nature of the griffon species. Strangely, Morianna for all her mental acumen despises the game of chess, believing it to be nothing more than a pastime enjoyed by those too weak-willed to ignore inconvenient rules and achieve true genius. One last thing: Morianna always insists on being addressed as “Professor”. Failure to do so will result in a fierce chastisement.
  25. Name: Prof. Morianna Razorclaw Gender: Female Age: Elderly Species: Griffon Eye color: Red Character color: Morianna's head is covered in pale gray feathers, her fur is white, and her wings are a dark shade of black. Mane/Tail/Other: A double crest of slate black feathers crowns the griffon's head in the manner of a Harpy Eagle, while her tail is like that of a lion's.

Despite her advanced age, constant physical activity and Aqueliia's best medical care prevent Morianna's body from going frail. Residence: Talonopolis Occupation: Special Defense "Advisor" for the Aquellian government (translation: head of the Agency of Strategic Intelligence), Honorary Professor of Foreign Affairs at the Aquellia Academy, self-appointed representative of the Razorclaw family. Unique Traits: The elderly Razorclaw is rarely seen not wearing her usual attire; a fancy blue coat accompanied by a white cravat. The griffoness also keeps a well-polished wood cane with a silver handle with her at all times, despite the fact that she is in no way infirm. While her look is old-fashioned, Morianna believes such a fashion statement emphasizes the noble majesty and prestigious history of the powerful Razorclaw family. Prof. Razorclaw is no fighter by any stretch, but as a griffoness knowing how dangerous her occupation can be, she has a couple surprises in store for would-be attackers. Concealed in her coat is an ornate dagger with a jeweled hilt, and her deafening roar is not too shabby either. But perhaps her most ingenious tool of self-defense is her cane, which in actuality is a hidden single-shot rifle. History: A daughter of the proud Razorclaw family of Aquellia, young Morianna enjoyed a life of immense wealth and privilege in Talonopolis. The chick had a sharp mind even at an early age; once her cognitive abilities developed sufficiently, she didn’t take long to figure out that her family was the most politically and militarily powerful of the three dominant families within the griffon nation. Putting her genius level intellect to work, the budding griffoness sought out knowledge concerning every manner of political subject, foreign policy grabbing her interest the most. Morianna’s interests pleased her family very much so, and so they hired the most gifted political scientists in Aquellia they could obtain to be the chick’s tutors. Yet high intelligence was not the only thing manifesting in young Morianna Razorclaw. A peculiar narcissistic mind also brewed; one that told her of Aquellia’s destiny in obtaining nigh-unchallengeable global supremacy, with her taking a leading role in this Aquellian-dominant world order. As far as Morianna was concerned, the overarching lesson she learned from her teachings was to never let pitiful concepts like empathy, honesty, and idealism get in the way of establishing a new Pax Aquellia throughout all four corners of the globe. For her, the only proper way of governance was through ruthless pragmatism and asserting authority over others. Believing herself superior over everyone else in her age group, Miss Razorclaw only associated with griffons her age as much as she deemed fit to increase her own popularity, and she felt no shame over bullying those she deemed annoying. Despite her lack of friends, Morianna excelled spectacularly in her studies, and the griffoness went on to graduate summa cum laude from the Aquellia Academy’s Foreign Affairs program. And even before earning her degree, the griffoness was already earning work experience in Aquellia’s foreign ministry offices in Talonopolis, learning firsthand the art of promoting her nation’s interests abroad. Morianna Razorclaw’s aspirations and cynical worldview did not escape notice, for she shortly found work within Aquellia’s clandestine intelligence services. Because of her superior abilities in establishing the right connections, exerting her dominant personality, and achieving desired results without risking exposure, Ms. Razorclaw’s rise through the ranks seemingly could not be forestalled. By the time she entered the twilight of her middle-age, the griffoness was in control of most of the Aquellian intelligence community and promptly used her influence to further her Pax Aquellia using any means necessary: by recruiting double agents to serve Aquellian interests, authorizing extrajudicial harassment of any perceived enemies of the state, and directing criminal activities abroad to fund covert operations (which run the gauntlet from counterfeiting and loansharking to extortion and high-profile heists). Given the sort of control Morianna currently enjoys, she believes herself so important in the grand scheme of things that she feels no compulsion for higher office… and mundane responsibilities the griffoness desires not to be burdened with. As the griffoness advanced in age, so did her prominence in the Razorclaw family and publicly in Aquellia. For her devoted service to the public good, Morianna’s alma mater awarded her with a honorary doctorate…and the privilege to lecture at the Academy and address herself as Professor Morianna Razorclaw. The feisty professor also devoted more of her time towards influencing the affairs of her own clan.

The professor is more than happy to engage in debates to argue her views… and to break every rule of debating in order to achieve an unquestionably-decisive victory. In her mind, the most articulate and outspoken voice always prevails over the inferior rule-abiding side. This disdain for rules partially explains why Prof. Razorclaw thrives so well in the world of espionage. With assistance from her genius level intellect and meticulous eye to detail, Morianna when provided with enough information can accurately predict for herself the behavior, capabilities, and intentions of a person or group. This ensures that whatever ingenious and immoral plans the professor devises in the advancement of Aquellian interests tends to succeed. Should she be given instructions not to do something, Morianna will see fit to secretly disobey her directives anyway, confident that a griffon of her extremely high stature can’t easily be removed from her post… and because she thinks nobody else is worthy to succeed her. Morianna Razorclaw deals with her fellow griffons and other people in a cold, calculated manner. It is not the professor’s policy to provide anyone with any tiny tidbit of warmth and kindness; in nearly all dealings, she acts with anywhere between a strict solemn formality and a seething anger depending on her mood.
