Please let me know if any formatting needs to be fixed this is my first character post!

 

Name: Lovely Craft | She/her
Age: Young Mare
Eye Color: Washed out green eyes, half-lidded and disinterested, accessorized with dark eye bags.
Coat Color: Muted yellow and covered in barely noticeable scars.
Mane and Tail: Pink and silver, pulled into a loose bun with bangs over her forehead.
Physique: Tiny and weary earth pony. Lovely holds herself like somepony who's nearing exhaustion with just enough coffees to push through, and her small stature makes her appear vulnerable and cute despite her unfettered glare.
Residence: Lovely travels all over Equestria, setting up in inns all over, never quite settling down.
Occupation: Writing horror novels of the visions she gets from the beyond.

Cutie Mark: A pink ball of yarn shaped into a heart with knitting needles poking out of it.
Lovely has always seen visions of the beyond but assumed that they were just figments of her imagination. One day she experienced a stream of ideas that she couldn't ignore, a vision of the future downfall of Equestria, hardly aware that her cutie mark appeared as she worked. She presented her findings to her family, and she was quickly dismissed in favor of admiring her new mark, assuming her talent was in weaving wonderful stories. That night, Lovely couldn't rest, her mind filled with the horrors of her vision. So she packed her saddlebag and left, never looking back.

Unique Traits: Lovely believes she has the ability to connect directly with the 4th dimension and beyond, able to see everyponies' energy and auras as well as the horrors that lurk in the in-between. No one, not even herself, is completely sure if she's crazy, but either way, she's accepted the life she has and is grateful for the gift of writing.

History: Lovely was born outside Las Pegasus to Starchild Paintbrush, a young earth pony mare from Appleloosa, with no idea who the father was. Paintbrush was unstable at the best of times. She'd always wanted a foal of her own but not for any unselfish reason. Lovely was born into the world for the sole purpose of being her mother's little tiny best friend. The two of them surfed couch to couch together for most of Lovely's young life until ending up with Claymold, a stable and reasonable stallion.
        The two of them were okay parents for the most part, but they had more important things to worry about than their strange daughter. She couldn't restrain herself from talking about the visions she had, saying things that no young filly could have made up on her own, but time and time again, her mother would brush it off as normal behavior, and her father would take her lead. When she got her cutie mark, she never heard from her parents again. Lovely only keeps in regular contact with her younger half-sister, Quinacridone, and by proxy, her older step-sister Ivory Jade.

Family:
     Starchild Paintbrush: Lovely's mother, an unstable, high-energy mother who proves more than anything that some mental illnesses are genetic. Though Lovely cares deeply about her mother, she knows that she will never connect with her. Paintbrush's cutie mark is a brush dipped in a coffee cup by mistake.

     Claymold: Lovely's stepfather. Married Paintbrush as his manic pixie dream girl, he now struggles to communicate with her. He cherishes all of his family, but his own upbringing makes it hard to express this affection. Lovely and her father have a surface-level relationship, neither really understanding the other, but despite that, Lovely loves him the most.

     Quinacridone: Lovely's younger half-sister goes by the name Queenie. Queenie shares her older sister's dark visions, but she chooses to be heavily medicated to protect her budding fashion career. The two of them share everything despite being on completely different wavelengths, escaping their childhood in very different ways. They still meet for brunch every few months. Queenie's cutie mark is a mauve brushstroke over a blank canvas.

     Ivory Jade: Lovely's stepsister. For her own sanity, Lovely only sees her when she absolutely has to. Jade lives with her mother, Claymold's ex-wife, Ivory Tower. Ivory tower married him for status, so when he ran off, she became the laughing stock of their collective families. Jade carries a lot of resentment for everyone in Lovely's family, and the two of them are equally vapid and nasty; Jade desperately trying to do better than her mother. Her cutie mark is a jade stone set in an ivory ring, and her mother is a crumbling Ivory Tower.

        Now Lovely spends her days moving from town to town at the will of her visions since receiving her cutie mark. She stops for as long as she can but sooner or later, everything gets to be too much. She wants more than everything to be able to breathe for a minute, to sit and take a break, but the possible downfall of Equestria hangs in the back of her mind, and until then, she writes to keep herself together.

Personality: Cancer Sun, Pisces Moon, Scorpio Rising
        Lovely Craft is polite and reserved to everyone she meets. Around most ponies, she's quiet, but underneath that lies a powerful and mysterious inner core. No matter who she's with, it's never difficult to understand what someone is really saying behind their words. She's incredibly perceptive and can't help listening in on every conversation she can, lurking unnoticed and piecing together all the complicated story lines of people's individual lives. However small, she is always enamored with the insignificant lives of every pony, perhaps even in a condescending way.
        Despite her fascination for everyone she meets, she always manages to keep them at arm's length. Lovely understands on some level that there's something wrong with her, more than that she needs to write to keep herself functioning, something that she doesn't think anypony will understand. Above everything else, her goal is to silence the horrors and protect herself, even if it's all in her head. At worst, she finds herself jaded, manipulative, dismissive, and cold. She does her best to avoid other ponies as much as possible, not only for their overwhelming energy but for fear of seeing anyone as a friend.

Summary: Lovely Craft is a quiet, mysterious pony who writes "supposedly fictional" horror novels about the terrifying cosmic end of days. Despite her kind and reserved demeanor, she's very clearly aged by experience. Most people who talk to her find themselves talking for hours, then walk away realizing they learned nothing about her. She never stays anywhere long, getting up and leaving without the slightest goodbye.
