Candy Cain


Recommended Posts


Roleplay Type: WoE
Name: Candy Cain (Or Candy "Cane".)
Sex: Male
Age: Young Adult
Species: Unicorn
Eye Color: Sage/Mint Green, Forest Green

Coat Color: Cane has a coat that is roughly wheat/tortilla colored, with decorative swirling strips of faint pink, though it is hidden by the white/pink collared shirt he wears.

Mane/Tail: Cane's mane and tail are a hot pink color, his mane not going all the way down his neck. His hairstyle is a middle-parting, wavy style, slightly hiding his ears. His horn comes up slightly behind the parting. His tail is a little thin and wavy as well, looking sort of like gum. No, not chewed-up gum. Good gum, or cotton candy.

Physique: As a whole, Cane's body is mostly lean, tall and athletic. Not as much built for power as it is built for endurance and speed.

Residence: Wanderer (However, since he visits Ponyville so frequently, he might be considered a Ponyville resident.)

Occupation: Confectioner, Showman

Cutie Mark: Cane's cutie mark is a pink swirl mint, the dark stripes seeming to float off the candy itself, signifying some sort of magic. Candy received his cutie mark the day he created his living replica of Canterlot. Though Candy has had many achievements with his sugary designs, he's never been able to pull of anything quite as grand as the Canterlot replica since. 

Unique Traits: Cane's an architect. Though he would never call himself that, Candy's occupation is very similar to that. He designs sweets (mainly candy), and creates art and structures out of the sugary substances. Then, the unicorn animates those things for all to see. Try and eat anything before Candy's done, though, and he might lose his marbles. Cane has a tendency to pick up on accents: Right now, his is trans-Atlantic and a steady confidence in almost everything he does. Almost everything. One last fun little tidbit; He's synesthetic. His particular cases of synesthesia allows him to experience flavors based off of color, and see colors from smells.

History: Like all of his family before him, Candy Cain grew up in the rich, colorful capital of Equestria, Canterlot. His family ran a small business up there, one that had to do with everyone's favorite thing; candy! They created and sold the sweets in a smaller shop on the edge of the city. Growing up, Cain was always acutely aware of what his parents and older siblings did, and what they could be doing instead. No, Cain didn't prefer to have fun as a child. He designed things. Candy, as a matter of fact. As a unicorn, Cain could use magic an many ways, and shifting the usage over to candy was no problem for him.

The end result was one that no one had expected from someone like him. Up until his early teen years, Cain had always experimented with shifting candy and sugar into different forms with his magic. They hadn't always gone so well. There were a few scattered successes, but not much. One early morning, though, Cain's parents and neighbors woke up to see not a little trinket, but a living replica of Canterlot, made entirely out of candy. Cain's mastery of manipulating so many different tiny things was extraordinary. This was the start of something new for Cain.

When Cain moved out, he started up his own business, taking the name of 'Candy Cain's Confections and Art'. There, one would be greeted by a smile and something wonderful; a world of candy. Some of it was life-sized, others miniatures. Some was made to look exactly like something in real life, down to the colors, other things were of Cain's imagination. Almost everything seemed to have been brought to life by Cain's magic. For a time, Cain was happy with himself.

But still, there were some  out there that couldn't see his works. Lots of things couldn't be moved, really. So Cain made his final decision. Cain sold off some of his works to buy a large cart full of materials to make candy. With this cart, Cain would go down to Ponyville and other populated areas, stopping where all could see him to preform his art. Not just show it- but create it in front of everyone's eyes, and let them see the magic and emotion put into it all. Some might have thought it was ridiculous, going to a mobile shop when he had no real need to, but Cain didn't mind it. All could see (and taste) his creations, and it made for good cardiovascular exercise. 

This is what he does to this day. Cane has not yet moved into Ponyville fully, since he doesn't think he's fully prepared for that kind of project, but every week, for a couple days at a time, Candy Cane visits Ponyville and populations beyond to show them what magic should truly be used for.

To make you feel like a kid again.

Personality: Candy Cane has a rather infectious personality, a real showman's attitude. His voice is one that can reach the back of a crowd without breaking, warm and full of life. Combined with his fluctuating, friendly accents, he is an instantly-likable character. He always laughs at a joke (even if it's corny), and always has time to listen to a story or request. He especially likes kids. He's always making them little candy trinkets to bring home or eat. His attitude sort of grinds to a halt when it comes to romance, though. He left the house before anyone could teach him how to approach the subject. That, and they didn't teach him how to feel about liking other stallions. . . He doesn't stutter, but he loses his train of thought from time to time. Though some think Candy's a little too open to new folk sometimes, he doesn't care. After all, everybody was a wide-eyed kid at some point. They all deserve kindness and a smile, right? As long as they aren't messing with his stuff, they're fine!

Character Summary: Candy Cane is certainly a pony-person, being open, always smiling, and always having time to give a colt or mare a bit of sweetness  when he's around. Getting used to Ponyville might take a little time, but he'll get around to it. Cain might be too trusting sometimes, but hey. He's a candy-colt. You wouldn't really take advantage of a guy like that, would you?
