    Yù Xīn

    From the album: Requests, Gifts, Commissions

    Got a notification today that it was Dubstep's birthday (or rather, it was Dubstep's birthday a couple days ago, and I didn't realize it because I wasn't on Skype for the weekend). So, I decided to draw some gift art, featuring none other than this crafty Qilin. Really love her color scheme - simple, but all the colors mesh really well together. Happy belated Birthday, Dubstep! Yu Xin (c) Dubstep

    Human!Yue

    From the album: Requests, Gifts, Commissions

    Bellosh and I were musing and discussing things awhile ago, about - if he were to join the EQG AU currently transpiring on the forums - which character he would use. He eventually theorized he'd use Yue if he joined the AU, which got me thinking what a human!Yue might look like, hence this picture. Nothing terribly intuitive about this. The hair came out really nicely, though by comparison the rest of the picture is pretty blah. But I was too lazy to try and make it any prettier, because my human pictures looks best as really messy and hard to discern sketches, lulz. I really struggled with the facial structure, particularly the eyes, though that's pretty on par with most human sketches I do. I also went with a pale, porcelain skin color rather than true EQG fashion, because those blue, green, purple, and whatever-colored skin tones still creep me out. Still, not too bad, especially considering that I haven't drawn anything in...months! I should probably start drawing ponies again, before I completely forget how... Yue (c) Bellosh
  3. From the album: Requests, Gifts, Commissions

    "...and I break your face." Nah, she's just kidding. Probably. ... Request to draw Bellosh's newest character, a Qilin by the name of Aunt Ci...aka, the "Wrathful Guardian of Fortune." I wasn't feeling up to a full body though, so I settled for a bust shot type deal. Chances are, you're going to be CIing this Qilin around the Triad members that have cropped up recently, because she's...well. Let's just say she's got an understanding going on with the Triads. Aunt Ci (c) Bellosh
  4. From the album: MLP Characters

    Obviously not a MLP character, but I'm putting it in this album because I want it to go with everything else, nyah ha. Theme image for the Eastern banner, with a nameless Qilin welcoming all to explore the lands of Long Guo, Neighpon, Polyneighsia, and Hesperia. I actually like how the design for this random Qilin came about - maybe she'll go up for adoption in the future, it'd be a shame to have her around only until a new banner replaces her.

    Lián Mei

    From the album: OC Art

    Last one last one, at least for a while. My love of cloved-hooved, tufted-tailed mythical equine species has been satiated with the Abada and the Qilin. Honestly when I started writing for this character, she came out disturbingly close to Yuri in terms of personality - excitable and easily impressed. I toned her down and sideways to make her more worldly and less excitable, but still boisterous and gregarious. Also gave her some major flaws, such as vanity and selfishness. Overall I like how she wrote out, considering that I sort of started with just the picture and later developed the character around it. I also can't take full credit for the color scheme on her. A friend of mine actually suggested it to me, after watching me try out and fail at about twenty other color schemes.
  6. From the album: OC Art

    Remember when I said five OCs were more than enough for me, way back in my first OC compilation? Yeah...yeah, those were the good 'ol days. Another group of OCs that were approved and have gotten art for their character logs, so once again, uploading them all in one batch rather than in separate pictures. The only one who doesn't have a character log yet is Revenant, but his picture's done. I need to work on utilizing different poses and expressions...this batch is pretty vanilla, especially compared to my other two compilation pictures. Honestly though, I tend to rush through the character log art in the first place, so all in all, I'm happy with 'em! Because each banner was a different size before I merged them all into one picture, they all came out looking kind of blurry and unfocused. Larger size is best size for viewing!

    Human!Mei

    From the album: OC Art

    I was in the mood to draw something but wasn't really sure what. Eventually settled on practicing humans again, this time with a humanized version of my Qilin character, Lián Mei. One of these days...one of these days, I will figure out how to shade hair. Until that day comes, though...sloppy and lazily multiple layering, lulz.
  8. From the album: OC Art

    Lol, that thumbnail tho. Wish there was a way to crop the thumbnail picture to not be dead center. Full view is best view! In any case though, here's a second take on a humanized Mei, because I felt like drawing something perky and curvy and decided to just use Mei as a model again. I've always had trouble drawing humans, particularly because of anatomy (I have a tendency to make everything rather buff), so this time, I just grit my teeth and tried to exaggerated female anatomy, with tiny waists and emphasized hips. To my immense surprise, it came out pretty good! (although since she's wearing a high-rise outfit, it kinda loses the shape a little bit, but in return makes her legs look really long). Don't ask me about the pose. As I was sketching I think I was trying to do some sort of superhero thing, where the superhero is flying and twists around in midair so that her upper body's facing one way and her lower body's facing the other...but then it didn't quite work out, so it just kinda looks like Mei's falling over. Gracefully, though - falling gracefully like an empress~

    Garden Gait

    From the album: OC Art

    So someone told me today that they couldn't find this picture in my gallery, leading me to realize that I failed to reupload it after the server reset. Hnnnrgh. In any case, here's a speed paint of Garden Gait's iconic flower meadow along the East Road, or at least my attempt at it. And also featuring Mei sitting upon a boulder, because. Please re-Like if you Like!
  10. From the album: OC Art

    Got inspired to try and draw some sort of formal wear for Mei. She comes from an old and traditional town, so I'd image their formal wear is equally old and traditional rather than something more modern - hence, Mei dressing up in a Hanfu, and taking an inordinate amount of time to admire herself in the reflection of a pond. It's an old Chinese type of dress similar to the Japanese kimono and Korean hanbok. There should, probably, be all sorts of elegant patterns over the hanfu, but I had enough trouble just trying to design the thing on a pony body, lulz. Any sort of outfit that has a high-waisted style is kind of moot on a pony, seeing as their "waist" is underbelly. Still, it was a fun design, and one that'll probably serve as Mei's formal wear should the need arise.

    Sunburst

    From the album: OC Art

    They've only been in one thread together, but Mei and Limi have gotten along pretty nicely. Maybe a little, too nicely... This took a lot longer to finish than I had originally planned, especially since that original plan had been to quickly doodle something out of an RP. Half because I forced myself to try different poses that I normally wouldn't try, and half because of Mei. Her design means she takes twice as long to finish than almost any other character I have. Except maybe Inkbrand, because of his tattoos. And, maybe Arc, because of his tattoos. ... -designs more OCs with tattoos, everywhere- Limi (c) Bellosh
  12. From the album: OC Art

    There characters of mine are participating in the Grand Galloping Gala, so of course they all needed outfits, the first of which was Mei's cheongsam. I was originally intending to use the picture I drew of Mei in a hanfu, as that is a more traditional outfit that would have better fit her humble and traditional upbringing. However, I realized that the hanfu really would have been a royal pain to walk around in. Plus, given that most mares wear large puffy ballgowns, I thought a short cheongsam would make her stand out more in a crowd. My favorite part was probably designing the patterns on her dress. Very abstract, I just kind of took a brush and made some vague flower and branch shapes~
  13. From the album: OC Art

    Yay, more Okami pictures with more eastern-themed characters. The hair kind of came out wonky on this one, but I decided to just leave be. When Mei lets her hair down, it falls in a straight line, so it's kind of hard to draw it billowing in the wind with the twisty brush I use for the mane and tail. Still, I like it better than my first attempt. I had initially planned to draw Mei with her hair done up and wearing an Empress' crown, because or her tendency to daydream she's an empress and such - but then I figured an Okami picture should be true to the character themselves, rather than what that particular character wishes they were, if that makes sense. It should be a picture solely of Mei, not a picture of what Mei wishes she were like. But that's all hooplah. The important thing is Ooookaaaamiii!
  14. Zeig

    Yin

    From the album: OC Art

    New OC, last OC, not making another OC after this, have too many OCs, etc etc. I still can't get over my love of Kirins, or Qilins, and they winged counterparts. Did I mention that I love cloven-hooved mythical creatures? Because I do. All we need is for the show to have some cloven-hooved unicorns with lion tails and I'll be all set! Yin is a member of an (as of yet) unnamed Triad based in Long Kong. She was partly inspired by sans from Undertale (everyone better get ready for this puny to hit the stage) and a character from a Korean movie. She's lazy and likes to crack jokes all the time, but she'll get riled up if you mess with anyone she cares about. It takes a lot to get her mad, so if you manage to hit that point...you've done goofed. (Or maybe not. She's a powerful breath user, but physically speaking? A few good punches can take her down and out). She's also sister to Feng, one of PrinceBlueblood's OCs who is also a member of the Imperial Watch. The Imperial Watch with a family member who's a notable rank in a notable gang in Long Kong...I don't smell shenanigans at all~

    Time Out

    From the album: OC Art

    Brother and sister take some time to just relax under the sun...because all work and no play is really kirin them. *regrets nothing* Just a quick little doodle/color. I need more practice drawing foals so that they look foal-aged...and more stubby looking. Stubby-features are key to all foals! Fēng (c) PrinceBlueblood

    Dēnglong Xiu

    From the album: OC Art

    "But Zeig, I thought your Yokai was going to be your last OC for a long while to come?" AHAHAHAHA...you thought. Dēnglong Xiu is the Imperial Wood Synergist for the Imperial Palace of Huangjing - essentially, a fancy way of saying she's the head physician of the palace. She's also rather unique among my OCs in being something of a doormat. She's not quite shy, but she's definitely more awkward than pretty much all of my characters combined. I don't usually play meek or "weak-willed" sorts of characters, but Xiu is definitely on the milder end of the spectrum...even if she does have her moments.

    Was thinking to myself the other day, that the last handful of pictures I've uploaded to my gallery have all had white backgrounds. I try to make sure I draw some pictures with non-white backgrounds every once in a while, just so I don't get in the habit of not bothering with backgrounds, and also because it's nice to see something other than blinding white when I'm browsing the pictures I've uploaded. Which is when I decided to do another Okami picture, because I haven't done one in a while. And my new character helped with the inspiration, whaddya know! Considering the different layers Xiu's mane has, I'm fairly pleased with how this one turned out. The simplistic background, too, I thought melded well into the "Okami" style feel. So overall, I'm happy with the result!

    Whew. This one took a little longer than expected because of a stubborn headache, plus I got a little obsessive with the details.. She was a bit of a challenge but I think she turned out pretty good. Lan Fa belongs to SymphonicFire
  20. Name: Hong Lan Fa Gender: Female Age: Mare Species: Qilin Eye colour: Dark brown Character colour: Grey-ish light pink coat with lavender scales. Mane/Tail/Other: Lan Fa has an indigo mane rolled up to a neat bun with gold ornaments hanging on the bottom. Her horns are short, dark brown, and slightly curled upwards and her keipo (dress) is a dark-ish red with golden designs on it. Her keipo is quite long, just ending above her brown cloven hooves covering her fetlocks. The right side of her dress has a long slit and a keyhole just above her right foreleg. She is also often seen carrying a burgundy paper fan with a dragon design on it. Cutie-Mark: Three red Orchids on a stem with each one smaller as it gets closer to the end. Physique: Tall and slender. Residence: Long Kong. Occupation: Lan Fa owns a club in the streets of Long Kong that Triad and non-triad members can enter. She usually hangs around the club to chat with ponies and gather information, but when she is not in the club, she works as an assassin for the Triads. History: Lan Fa grew up as the daughter of a wealthy business pony, living a comfortable and happy life with her parents and younger sister. She would accompany her parents to meetings and learn about the world of business as she would one day take over the company. Because she was already made heiress to the company early on in her life, Lan Fa was home schooled, making her younger sister her only company while her parents were working. She adored her little sister, maybe a little too much, as she was the only one Lan Fa could talk to about non-business related topics. This lifestyle would continue on until her late teen years, when Lan Fa is able to go to meetings herself an speak in her parent's stead. She had come back from a difficult meeting, trying to make a deal while a competing with another company that is trying to make a better offer to their partner. This company had been rivals with her parents since the beginning. They were always attempting to take business partners away from Lan Fa's family, though they were never successful. This may have been the last time they could handle a defeat. After the meeting with their rival and potential business partner, Lan Fa came home to a shock. Both her parents were dead on the floor and her younger sister was no where to be found. She knew she couldn't stay there very long, since they knew that she is still alive. She quickly gather what she needed and ran as far as she could away from her house, ending up in the sketchy streets of Long Kong. She figured that the few years of training in martial arts (stopped because her father deemed it not mare-like) would be sufficient enough just in case, but she still wouldn't want to be in that situation. She was able to stay hidden from her pursuers for a few months, changing her appearance so that they wouldn't recognize her. It wasn't until 4 months since her escape that she started to notice she was being followed on her way home. She started talking detours to confuse her stalker, but after a week, she found herself trapped in a blind alley. The qilin turned to see two henchmen from the rival company, closing in on her. She felt her hind legs hit the wall behind her, there was truly no way of getting out of this situation without standing up against them. Lan Fa took a deep breath, charging at the two stallions as they did the same. The one to the left of her pulled his hoof back for a punch, missing as Lan Fa ducked and stuck a hoof out to trip the other. The stallions quickly recovered and struck Lan Fa in the jaw at the same time, making the female qilin stumble and fall. “We don’t want to hurt you, just come with us quietly.” The stallions loomed over her, looking at Lan Fa as she narrowed her eyes. “No.” She quickly turns around and bucks, her horseshoes striking each of their jaws. They blackout and collapse as Lan Fa walks out of the alley, only to see more stallions in her way. They were just as intimidating, though the group didn’t look like they came to apprehend her. Judging by their appearance, they must be part of the Triad. The stallion at the front of the group looked like the leader of the group. He wore a black jacket over a dark grey turtleneck, his grey mane was combed back, and his dark red scales look well taken care of. His dark green eyes look intense, yet tired at the same time. “I’m impressed, not many young mares can take out trained henchmen, especially from a CEO of the largest company in Long Kong.” He spoke with a husky voice, almost calming to Lan Fa. “What’s it to you?” she asked. One of the stallion’s underlings clenched his teeth, but was told to back down when his leader raised his hoof. “The boss and the CEO have a complicated relationship, so news about how the Hong Company’s heiress took down the CEO’s stallions would surely amuse him.” Lan Fa suddenly looked concerned, keeping her guard up as she watched the stallion light a cigarette. He looked at the mare and puffed some smoke, “There’s only one pony the CEO wants dead the most, it’s not difficult to figure out.” He drops his cigarette and puts it out with a stomp. “You should come with us; our interests are aligned and you show potential to become a good fighter. We’ll even provide food, a private room, and protection while we train you. Perhaps one day together we can take him down. The choice is yours.” He stuck his hoof out towards the mare. Lan Fa had considered revenge, though she had given up a while ago because it was impossible in her current situation. Now that the Triad has offered her to join them, perhaps this was her biggest opportunity to get revenge and find her younger sister. She took his hoof and shook it. “What should I call you?” she asked, following the group as they headed back to their territory. “You can call me Long. I’ll see to it personally that you become the best assassin this Triad has seen. We’ll discuss this further in the Boss’s office.” Character Summary: Lan Fa is a calm pony who often thinks through things rationally. Though she is not a very talkative mare, she still socializes with the ponies who come into her club. As an assassin, she is stealthy and takes pride in her many disguises and skill. Even though she owns a club, she prefers tea over alcohol, especially in her alone time. Lan Fa also likes watching dramas, ukes, and visiting old friends.
  21. (Created on Generalzoi's game) (Minor edits made by me) Name: Wǎn Qiūjì (晚 秋) Late Autumn Gender: Male Age: Adult Stallion Species: Qilin Likes: Wife, his foals, weather, stargazing with wife, quiet time. Dislikes: Any sort of harm done to his family Coat: Chocolate brown Mane/Tail: Grass Green and Dark Green. Mane is a similar style to Rainbow Dash's, the tail is done in a traditional male tie. Eye Color: Vibrant orange, serpent-like design. Physique: Tall, average build, not too much muscle but within the average category. Residence: Huangjing Occupation: Weather Reporter, Harbor: Ticket Assistance Cutie Mark: Three Autumn leaves, each a different color within the orange spectrum. Unique Traits: Weather Sensor- A key point in Wǎn's success as a weather reporter, his horns can sense upcoming changes in climate via his tall, gazelle-like horns. When faced with a certain type of weather, his horns will be tinted in a certain color. For example, if there is a high chance of rain, his horns can be seen with a faint tint of blue. History: Wǎn was boring into a semi-wealthy family, having lived most of his life in Souther Huangjin. His family home was luxurious on the inside but simply looked like a large townhouse on the outside. Wǎn was forced to grow up at a young age, following in his Father's footsteps to success. While Wǎn's Father definitely wasn't strict nor harsh, he wanted what was best for his son, even if it meant taking away his childhood, something he now regrets. Wǎn's Father worked as a merchant, known for pricing things higher then they're worth, though, his charm and persuasive skills made it easy to sell and make a profit. Wǎn's mother was unemployed, relying on her husband's business to provide for the family as she took care of Wǎn, proving to be an easy task as he wasn't raised to be rambunctious nor immature. When Wǎn was a young foal, he didn't go outside much, often studying and working hard on his school work, not that he minded at all. Wǎn was very self-reserved, making him almost unapproachable when he did go out. Some often mistook him for a sort of machine, like an AI, due to his monotone expressions and quiet behavior. One day the young foal had gone out during a fairly sunny day, on his way to school, he had noticed his horns were emitting a blue sort of aura that at first went by unnoticed. As the day went on, the blue tint grew dark and bright, the sky changing with the color of his horns. By the end of the day, the clouds were pouring rain, creating large puddles and floods in various others. Wǎn then began to further his research, often observing his horns during the day, as time went on, he began to take note of what each color meant. The research took at least two months, by then, he received his cutie mark. Wǎn at first was shocked it was simply three Autumn leaves, expecting for it be a combination of all the different weather in some shape or form, though, that wasn't the case. That following Autumn, Wǎn realized his little quirk was most strong during the season, the colors much brighter, though, a simple hue against his orange horns. Wǎn nor anyone else expected such a mark on his no longer blank flank, in fact, everyone expected it to consist of books, Mathematics, or anything having to do with education considering the young colt's knowledge. Wǎn grew to accept his unique mark, later pursuing the career of reporting the weather, hoping to help others with his unique ability, though, considering the land of qilin, it was simply a quirk that defined him as a pony, most qilins had some sort of unique quirk. He took on the job as a weather reporter, although, due to his job only being useful for parts of the day, he took on the part-time job of working at the local harbor as a ticket assistant where he would make sure boarding ponies and qilins had their designated pass to get on. During his time as a weather reporter, he had met a young mare, one who had a bright mind and a bubbly aura which lightened everyone's mood, even during the darkest of times, which he witnessed with his own eyes. The young stallion soon learned the interesting mare lived just next door, Wǎn began to find himself growing attracted to the beautiful mare that seemed to turn the rainy weather he predicted into a happy day. Within no time, he pursued the mare, finding every chance he could get to speak with her or even offer her a date for the two to get coffee together during the mornings. He discovered her name was Měilì Xīng. He knew this feeling was nothing more than love, the two would often be seen with each other. Other ponies noticing the change in Wǎn's serious behavior, they watched as he blossomed into a much more bubbly and friendly stallion such as his new mare-friend. Wǎn didn't take long to propose to the mare, more than happy to have her as his wife and to even start a family with her. Those of Huangjing soon named the couple "soulmates" due to how they clicked so perfectly. Měilì's parents were more than happy when the two had twins, a filly, and a colt. Wǎn couldn't be any happier with how things turned out for him, completely forgetting his Father's words of wisdom, advice, and his goal to be a successful stallion. He learned the values of family, that was the only thing the now bubbly stallion needed. Character Personality: Wǎn started off as a very distant and serious stallion, often avoiding conversation with others if it meant distracting him from his current task and studies. He had no friends to play outside with, his entire childhood being replaced with school, books, and the goal of growing to face success. He was no different from an AI personality wise. Now, Wǎn is just as bubbly as his wife, wasting no time with greeting others and being friendly with everyone he sees. His wife's personality seemed to rub off on him, making him into the pony he is today. Character Summary: Wǎn can now be considered one of the most charming stallions of Huangjing, though, his heart belonged to only one mare and that being his beloved wife, the mare who turned him from an AI to an actual pony. Wǎn can often be seen with his family, if not, he is most likely working to provide for his family now that his wife is a stay-at-home-mother. Wǎn is a proud husband and Father, never afraid to bring up his family and how much he loves them. For his family is his entire world.
  22. (Created on Generalzoi's game) (Minor edits made by me) Name: Měilì Xīng (美丽 星 ) Beautiful/Refined Star Gender: Female Age: Adult Mare Species: Qilin Likes: Stargazing, night, constellations, family. Dislikes: Autumn, sunrise, her multiple freckle-like scales. Coat: White with grey patches of freckles/scales. Mane/Tail: Měilì's mane is a vibrant aqua with seafoam green undertones. Her mane is done in a traditional style for married mare's with family, it is also loosely known as a "messy bun" though it has more symbolic meanings in her village, her tail is done a similar messy style. She is a married mare so there is no need for her to fancy up her mane to impress others. Eye Color: Amber/Gold, similar shape to Rarity's with a serpent-like pupil. Physique: Měilì is a very slender mare, taller than normal ponies, and not very muscular. Her slender frame adds her feminity, which attracts stallions more in her village since it would be considered the "Ideal Body Type". Residence: Huangjing Occupation: N/A, Měilì is a stay at home mother of her two foals. Měilì was previously an astronomer, always following and navigating different stars and constellations. Cutie Mark: A Comet that starts with a white tip and blends down to a cerulean and a lavender purple. Unique Traits: Star Dust- Just as the name says, Měilì can create a vibrant colored mist (Revolving around the color schemes of her character) that resembles stardust, though, there isn't any proof whether it is simply just mist or actual stardust considering her village isn't one for advanced technology. Her dust doesn't have any certain affect aside from looking elegant and graceful whenever she emits it, she often uses the dust as a way to soothe or calm her foals when in distress. Chilly Breath- She can emit a cold frost from her breath, creating a chilly wind that sparkles with what looks to be dust such as her other trait. It isn't anything special but good to help you cool down on a hot Summer day as well as looking pretty. History: Měilì was born in a middle-class family, is one of the four foals of the Ling family, she was the youngest of the four which in result she was treated as a precious gem. Měilì was also the only filly, she had three older brothers that all had their own unique, vibrant colors and traits. Her mother, Fang, worked as a beautician in a salon, often working with mares on their wedding day. She was a very friendly and warm mare, making her very well-known within their small neighborhood area. Qiang, Měilì's Father, was much more fierce and hot-headed, earning him the nickname "Warrior" since he was always so harsh and leading others. Some often wondered how Měilì's mother could fall for such an explosive stallion, though, only the Ling family has seen the soft and cheery side of Qiang. Měilì was much different from her family, often daydreaming and acting more energetic and bubbly compared to her mature and serious brothers, as well a humble mother and fierce father. She would stand out as well, her passion for things not revolving about architecture, beauty, and other common careers/job within the town. In fact, she held a great passion for stars, finding them to be the most fascinating thing she's ever seen. She would spend hours without and end simply admiring the night sky, often staying up far too late to her parent's liking, though, she couldn't help it. She soon found herself noting the shapes, colors, and patterns of stars, filling an entire notebook on whichever one catches her golden eyes. This strong passion soon turned to an obsession, earning her the beautiful comet cutie mark displayed on her flank, it was unique and different from those of her family members and neighbors, standing out more than an elephant in a room of ponies. When Měilì became a young mare, she fulfilled her passion and became an apprentice astronomer, putting her knowledge to good use and soon mastering the different hours each star would appear, their symbolizations, and even the constellations they're part of. Within that time, she met her soon-to-be husband, Wǎn Qiūjì (Late Autumn), he helped report weather changes and predict upcoming storms with his talents. Within a few months of the meeting, they married and to their delight, Měilì 's Father approved of the stallion. Měilì's life as an astronomer was fun but soon came to an end when she gave birth to twin foals, a colt and filly. Yún (cloud) being the filly and Yǔ (rain), the colt. Měilì took her foals into consideration and decided to become a full-fledged mother, staying home to care for her foals while also maintaining their home while her husband continued his career to provide for the bubbly family. The family remained in their residence, staying close to Měilì 's parents considering they weren't getting any younger and would soon need daily help with simple tasks. Character Personality: Měilì is a very bubbly mare, she is always seen greeting and chatting up a storm with somepony, always brightening the mood when it seems to falter. Měilì does have her sad moments but those come on rare occasions make her overall emotions very happy, energetic, and cheerful. Her foals always have her on her hooves, meaning there is no time to be sad or tired, which results in her hyperactive behavior at times from drinking cup after cup of coffee. The mare is a very good friend to have, always ready to talk or lend a shoulder for somepony to lean on. She knows just when to end the fun and get serious all just to put a smile on another ponies face, she believes that a simple smile can make everything much better. Character Summary: In conclusion, Měilì lived a very peaceful and simple life, learning the moralities of life easily and starting her very own family, giving up her dream just to care for her foals, proving how big of a heart she has. Měilì is a great friend, intelligent, beautiful, and a loyal mare that would give anything to her friends and family, all for the sake of making them happy. Měilì lights up her part of the neighborhood with simple greetings, getting every pony connected in some way to build a peaceful and friendly village for any creature.

    Shogun Dad

    From the album: Muddy's Album!

    The father of Ryuichi the current Shogun and his siblings Ishi and Kaze.
  24. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Akarui Yozora | 明るい夜空 (Roughly translated it means 'Bright Night Sky') Sex: Male Age: Older Stallion Species: Kirin Eye Colour: Rich Red. Coat: Akarui's coat is a rich night sky blue whilst the scales on his muzzle, chest and dotted about his hide are a terrakota colour leaning towards red. Mane/Tail: His mane and tail is a thick dark turquoise with a steak of colour that starts as a deep blue and becomes more vibrant towards the tip, there are steaks of this vibrancy in his beard and chops. Physique: Akarui is a muscular and tall Kirin, laden with working muscle that's obvious in his legs. He has the tiniest bit of pudge around his middle from a life in the Palace - but it's all rather compact around a barrel of muscle that makes up the older stallion. Residence: Palace Castle in Kyoma Occupation: Previous Shogun's Groom | Current Shogun's Father Cutie Mark: A Yin Yang symbol with the darker half ontop of the lighter, instead of solid black and white the lighter part is made up of a sunset lit sky and the darker half is a starlit night sky with the moon and sun conjoined together in the middle of the symbol. Akarui was a late bloomer for his cutie mark, becoming an older colt and growing into his gangly pre-adolescent legs long before any magic started flashing on his flank. However by that time he also had a LOT of baby siblings to take care of as well as helping his parents with their work. Needless to say on a young stallion it was more than a little stressful. Wailing foals and the taxation of the work and parental demands grew too much for a colt just entering early adulthood who just wanted to loaf and be lazy, he'd had thoughts now and then of running away from it all, living a free life. But the guilt of such an idea struck him far too deep - making him stay and instead pushing to another extreme. This time he worked too hard. For a week he worked, trying all his best to balance work with caring for infant siblings and this time neglecting all rest in lieu of forcing himself to the brink. By nopony's surprise - he got extremely ill from stress and all the more frustrated for it. He couldn't loaf off because he would shirk his duties, he couldn't push to be a perfectionist worker otherwise the stress would make him sick. It all felt unfair to him. Amidst his frustration, his elderly grandmother had come to soothe his stomach with tea and asked him why he had pushed himself. When he explained, the old mare smiled and stroked her grandson's mane before explaining to him that you couldn't have one without the other. Like the sun and moon, day and sun, the lives of ponies needed their time to relax and their times to be serious in a balance. One road would lead to a lazy lifestyle and one would lead to a stressful lifestyle. Seeing his grandmother's wisdom, the colt took comfort and this time worked the next week much easier. But didn't make the week just easier for himself, he noticed his family in general was prone to pushing one extreme and took it upon himself to aid them. Supporting them in their work and pushing them gently to do better if they couldn't pull themselves from relaxing - or simply telling them when they needed to stop and think about themselves if they pushed themselves too hard. A week this went on and when he found a rhythm, Akarui took most if not all his work in his stride. He had found self imposed balance and peace. And soon enough, the older colt's flank flashed and revealed his cutiemark; Representing his calm attitude to life's stresses and worries and how he seeks to aid those suffering from stresses but also inspire them to be their best. Unique Traits: Akarui has quite an astounding patience, having come from a large family with many little siblings, very overworked and stressed parents, a wife who had to deal with the worries of a nation and three children - Akarui has bore a smile and been a supportive pillar through it all since his early adolescence. It can take something truly immense to shift this big patient mountain of a stallion from nothing more than the supportive house husband and father that he is and even then he will try to keep himself completely composed and level headed through it for the sake of others. Not being a Ryuma and being firmly situated on the ground, Akarui's has a strong magic breath that forms bright aqua blue lightning when focused or in times of true outrage or anger - say in defense of his children or family. However with his patience it's rare to ever see that magic breath of his in action. This old man certainly knows how to brew a cup of tea, not a leader of state and not a stallion who needs to concern himself with the economy - he certainly does know how to soothe over the spirits of any grumpy visiting delegates with the perfect cup of tea. Knowing many different flavours, heats, sweet supplements and always knowing the perfect time to sit down with one. He knows his children's favourites off by heart, as well as most of the servants and will often be seen with a fresh cup and silently mulling away the worries of the world that will fade in a fresh steamy tea. History: Akarui Yozora was the first born of a large family from the higher middle class within Kyoma, his family dealt in silk trade, having several silk worm farms and selling only the finest to be made for the grandest and greatest within Neighpon's capital. As a youngster the stallion preferred to be a lazy loafer who wasn't really interested in his parent's work, happy to grow big on the bits that his parents were bringing in...up until one of their silk farms was attacked by an angered Long. With the recent growth in their family with his younger siblings and the sudden lack of immediate silk, he was involved in making sure everything was tallied and shops got what they were asking for whilst juggling the infants now born into the homestead. Needless to say, Akarui couldn't be both lazy and sick with work related stress as he tried to push one extreme to the other for the first week or so and eventually, through his grandmother, found a way to balance both as well as aiding his overly stressed parents. For the next couple of weeks they worked and eventually fixed their work schedule with their son's help, whilst he found a peace in being able to relax and work with his new cutiemark. Over the next set of years, the stallion grew and became quite the looker - something that hadn't gone unnoticed by his parents who recommended him trying to marry into a wealthier house, if for nothing else than for his own benefit. Bet Akarui was still a fairly young stallion and had no interest in such things...yet. At the same time the current Shogun was being pestered for her hoof in marriage by so many suitors, Akarui had never seen so many fancy stallions from all walks of Neighpon and even other parts of Equestria, garnering gifts and favous for their Shogun's hoof. One day, one of his parent's clients was delivering a package to the Shogun's palace in the form of a beautiful official robe - now this client happened to be quite the elderly seamstress, so the stallion offered to aid in its delivery and upon coming to the Palace, finally met the Shogun face to face in the middle of handling all the ponies that vied for her attention. Needless to say, seeing such a level headed and in control mare certainly changed Akarui's perspective of marriage. He was smitten at first look. When he told his parents of his interests, they were ofcourse overjoyed - but he was worried their interventions might make him come off as desperate as those gift giving stallions. It didn't help that when he offered himself as the Shogun's consort, he got his fair share of glares - but the Shogun looked rather relieved at less flashy offer and decided to give him a few days in her company to see how they'd get along. The phrase 'like a barn on fire' certainly came to mind. They'd spend hours talking to each other, him about his view on life and his parent's work, her about the silly gifts she'd been getting and her work with the nation as a whole. They'd walk with each other, watch the stars and simply enjoy the quiet. Days in her company turned to weeks and soon a month and all could quite agree that they got along swimmingly. But to Akarui it didn't feel like enough, yes he wasn't a flashy stallion - but he felt the Shogun deserved something. So on the evening of that year's Cherry Blossom Festival, after her speech to the citizens was done - Akarui gently whisked her away to a silent stretch of river painted with blossoms and offered her a charm with two pearls tied to the silk rope. One gold as the sun, one pale as the moon. He told her that it was tradition of stallions in his family to give something meaningful to the mares they loved and this charm symbolized just how perfect they felt together as a couple, as perfect together as the sun and the moon. The next moon, they were married. He was the Shogun's groom. He had no power over the nation, but he was happy. He made sure the servants were content in their work, he acted as house husband to guests and a friendly face to greet them and over all - he loved his wife. His beautiful, wonderful wife. He was there to support her, reassure her and invigorate her in her ideas whilst also making sure she took the time to relax. It wasn't a surprise that soon they were blessed with a Ryuma of all things as their first, needless to say he was more than happy. He was downright delighted. His firstborn son and not the last, soon blessed with another the year after as he watched both his boys grow and go through training and make him prouder with each day. Akarui was happy in his life. And even happier with the birth of his third. When the Kaiju came a few days afterwards, not even he could've foreseen what happened. He spent hours looking for his wife in the wreckage the Kaiju had caused...but it was too late. Completely distraught, Akarui was given little time to mourn - especially when his firstborn vanished in grief and his second searched for blame on anywhere but the monster. In Ryuichi's absence he could only offer support to the council members and reassure of his trust in his son's return, whilst balancing caring for his infant daughter in the meantime and helping the servants piece themselves together after the tragic passing of the late Shogun. With Ryuichi's return, relief returned with the older stallion and he finally gave himself time to grieve. Nowadays, the older stallion is cheerful - for he knows his wife would've wanted it that way. He knows she knew that was when he was at his best. Being a peaceful boon to others and a kind father to his beloved children whilst also keeping an eye over his eldest son who he proudly watches from the side as he runs Neighpon. Character Personality: Akarui is a kindly older stallion, his patience certainly helps and his perception of the world aids in helping slow down and understand more complex matters at a pace that becomes easier to break down and help others understand it. With all the experience he has with this, it helps him come off as a rather wizened older fellow, almost like a mentor in that sense. However those who know him better also know the fun loving and playful side of him as well, he is a father after all, a father of three children - one of whom still a foal - and he'll he hogtied if he won't make it his duty to atleast get a smile out of them once a day or be there for them when they're feeling upset or need fatherly advice. Ofcourse some of his advice is usually light hearted or making playful jabs, given his laid back attitude to life and such, but again it's all in seeking a smile and calm within people. Due to the passing of his wife, he can sometimes be quite somber by his lonesome - but it's a fleeting thing at best, as well as anger. Akarui isn't a stallion prone to anger or outbursts, preferring to talk before anything confrontational and will never use what's left of his status against anypony. He prefers to see them on equal grounds, be them peasant or princess. The angriest he will be is possibly raising his voice, being a touch louder, or even frowning for a few seconds in disappointment of someone making him angry - but even then it's not him being fully angered, moreso just disappointed. Not many have seen Akarui angry, not many would be sure to say if they'd like to see such a kind old fatherly pony angry either. Character Summary: The wise older patriarch of the Shogunate family and father of the Shogun, Akarui acts as the serene pedestal of support to those in the Palace who need it and the gentle father to his children. Always patient, level headed and calm tempered. If you need a gentle shoulder to lean on or somepony to talk your problems out to, Akarui is the Kirin for you.
