Never posted on here before, but this thread caught my interest. I suppose I'd like to share my own character, perhaps someone might find it decent. It's a bit wordy, and I wrote it back when the campaign was somewhat new. Hopefully my grammar wasn't 'that' bad back then. My character's name is Ariar The Antelope,


Looking back it him now, I could definitely do a better job. Alas, it's all I have for now, so it'll have to do.

As I said, it's a bit wordy, so if you're curious just follow the Deviantart link! Thanks for reading!

See Mane6? This is why I've been pushing for a Springbok Antelope character! Because they would be adorable!

I made mine based off of my sister's favorite animal, a giraffe, and named it after her:



Currently don't have the time to scour the entire thread, but I presume this is not the first proposed giraffe by a long shot.

EDIT: I had also made a pixel version of it based on the original scrapped hubworld sprites that Leedin made:

Name: Catapult Cow
Species: Cattlekind
Description:
catapult-cow.jpg

She looks EXACTLY like this.


okay once upon the time a calf ewas borned and her name was Arizona. but this isnnt about her so shut up about that. The next day there was annother calf bnorn somwhere else adn hr name was CATAPULT! She was looked a littl differnt from teh rest of the cattls but thats ok because mom said she was mor special. CATAPULT was smart adn pretty and everyone liked her bcause she was the best at things! Avering called her fat but shes not htough. what do you know?

one day she got bored with prarieland. bye!

So she awlked alot and found a hot place with volcaners and lots of snake horses. CATAPULT didnt liek snakes but add a horse and is ok. she foun the place with a prety bulding adn som kites and ther was a old snakhorse that was wise and blind or whatever. Blindhorsnake was very wise andsaid lots of words to CATAPULT about fate and future and some other stuf. but i dont speak chinese or whateverso she gave her a fortune cookie instead.

It read, "Only through giving can true wealth be obtained."

CATAPULT decided to took the advices to heart and stole the rest of the cookies when fortunetellersnorselady wasnt looking. was ez because her eyes didnt work. she said some things but CATAPULT didnt listen. she was old dinosar adn coudlnt see so how could she read them anyway what the heck?

i didn't go very far before a cool armor snorse stopped me and taold me to go bak and pay for the thigns. but i still dont spek snorse languages and i dont know the value of money so I kicked her in the shin. she got mad and other ones start to chase! me

i ran passed a thing and went throu another thing but there was a wall in the way. What a great wall! I couldnt go around i had to gover cause it aws the only other way except the front door. the ONLY WAY! and so then a catapult happened not CATAPULT just a regalar one and I climbed into it. They yelled at me to get down but I didn't because I do what I want. so they climbed up after me but i didnt want them to so I hit the thing. All snake and horse and a cow went flying but they could fly noramlly for real THE HECK and so they stopped chasing me. i flew over a bear. i went very far and got hungry so I opend a forutne cookie. I dropped one but but is fine I have lots.

It read, "Land is always on the mind of a flying bird."

it was then taht she truly understood her destiny to use this flinging contraptionn to travl the world and spread her wisdom to the masses! She named her invention the CATAPULT. It was named after her of course not the other way around dummy

Everything was clear now. It all made sense! Her path was in sight.
Then she hit the ground.

I'm back.
Name: Volmaak, Perfected
Species: Water Buffalo
Appearance: Thick, dark fur, with large horns. Somewhat frail, sickly build. Hexagonal, rocklike patterns growing across hide and horns. They seem to glow.
Disposition: Hostile

Volmaak was once an outlier of his kind; small, thin frame, an outcast amongst his much larger brethren. He was isolated, and once he reached adulthood, he was ousted from the Water Buffalo citystate. Among the tall grass, sheer cliff faces, and unforgiving sun, he happens upon a cave. Inside the cave was an odd stone, glowing a calming shade of blue. Believing it to be a sign from his gods, Volmaak takes the stone, depositing it inside a woven-grass bag around his neck.

Weeks later, the bag is gone, replaced by a glowing blue shard in Volmaak's fur. Hexagon patterns ripple across his horns, and he feels more powerful than ever, naming himself Perfected. He understands now, understands the magics coursing through Foenum, understands them far more than the posh reindeer or the Order's incompetent, drooling orthodoxy.

The stone whispers to him.

You must destroy everything, it said, then you will be strong.

It makes a compelling argument.

I suppose this is probably a long time overdue.

Name: Vesper Iris

Race: Unicorn

A Brief Backstory:
Vesper Iris was born and raised in The Woodland just as any other unicorn, as a devout member of the Order of the Horn.

His early years were spent learning the nature of the forest, the long history of his people, and the intricacies of the Light. He accepted everything as it was given to him, never questioning, and never seeking any knowledge outside of what was presented to him.

But after witnessing Oleander's revelation, he began to question many of the Order's archaic practices and traditions. He did not agree with Oleander's choices, of course, but there was so much more to learn that the unicorns simply turned a blind eye to.

He expanded his studies to that of other races and foreign magics. There was much more to magic than just the study of the Light, but the resources of outsider knowledge in the Woodland was very limited, so he began experimenting on his own.

After several years, he grew tired of the complacent and reclusive nature of the unicorn people, and began a journey to study other cultures. He met many other ungulates in his travels and learned much of their history, but very little about magic.

He eventually traveled to the land of the reindeer, who were well known for their winter magic. He was initially accepted there out of curiosity, as it was extremely rare for his kind to be seen outside of the Woodland. He made a few friends among the people there, but mostly kept to himself and his research, not wanting to become too involved in the affairs of the city.

He has lived around the area for several years, learning the ways of the deerfolk. He makes the trip into Rein every so often, performing magic services when needed, but doesn't actually live there, since he's not overly fond of the constant crowds and the busyness of the city. He currently resides in a forested region not too far from the capital. He lives in a small grove within the forest that he has grown to vaguely resemble his home in the Woodland. Unicorn enchantments and wards prevent his retreat from being discovered by those without the magical sense to see through them.

After news of the predators began spreading, he knew that the unicorns would simply hide away as they always did, but he decided that he would assist the rest of Fœnum however he could.

Description:
Has a naturally white coat like all other unicorns. Has a slightly thicker 'winter coat' due to his years living in the colder climate of the Tundra. Though this does not keep him warm nearly as much as a reindeer's would, so he's most often seen wearing his scarf or cloak.

Fairly meticulous about keeping himself kempt and clean, and in keeping up appearances, so he's known to come across as a bit vain to others. Quiet and reclusive for the most part, mostly due to his unicorn upbringing, but is quick to defend his people should their reputation ever be called into question.

Vesper Iris Reference Sheet
Vesper Iris - Unicorn Wizard

He's a unicorn who likes magic and lives close to Rein.

((I've come to realize that I've set Vesper up to be somewhat comparable to a certain zebra character most of us know, living in the woods near Rein and all. But more of a unicorn mage, and much less of a rhyming witchdoctor.))

There. This now officially exists on the forum. Will probably update it better later.

Has a naturally white coat like all other unicorns, but magically changed his mane and tail colour after reindeer kept insisting that he blended into the snow too well. He generally keeps it blue unless formality dictates he dispel it.

Springbok when

So I made a Springbok OC. It's been a long time coming, but I kinda didn't want to share her on the off chance that I'd be given an opportunity to submit her to the devs in a more "official" way. Get her made into a real character, y'know? Then I realized that's pretentious and stupid considering they have a professional writer on their team. So here it is, my attempt at creating a character that could feasibly fit into the TFH cast. (As such I probably won't be using her for Role Play).

Name: Choy
Sex: Female
Species: Springbok
Personality:
Bouncy, naive, childlike, and perhaps a little unstable, Choy has gained a well-earned reputation among the other Spingbok as a delinquent and a vandal. She has a somewhat warped view of the predators... while most ungulates think of them as scary and threatening, Choy finds them fascinating and adorable. So much so that she is regularly seen proudly wearing a cute cat tail with matching ears and paws. She has also adopted a few small catlike mannerisms, and has put some serious effort into learning how to properly stalk and pounce. Her fellow Springbok find this to be in bad taste, considering the threat of a full scale predator invasion is looming on the horizon.
Story:
Nobody really knows what Choy's deal is. The little Springbok doesn't seem to have a fixed residence or a family to speak of, she mainly just wanders around the Springbok lands disturbing the peace and causing minor property damage. When it became clear that the predators were trying to break back into Fœnum, Choy did not share in her people's panic and instead began training. She spiced up her wardrobe with a few cat accessories and spent an indeterminate amount of time leaning how to sneak up on prey and tear apart balls of string. When pressed, Choy assured the other Springbok that she doesn't actually wish for the predators to come back... she just thinks they're cool! When it came time for the Springbok to choose a champion, Choy assumed she was a shoe-in. After all, she was used to the outdoors, and her training had made her an excellent fighter. This is why she was so shocked to find out that not only was she not selected to be the champion, but the Springbok leaders outright refused to consider her on the grounds that she's mentally ill. Hurt by the leader's decision and angered by having her opportunity to see real life predators stripped away, Choy set out to find the key anyway, and steal back the destiny that had been so rudely taken from her. The other Springbok, happy to see the public disturbance go, didn't try to stop her. However, considering Choy's strategy for finding the key mainly involves sabotaging the competition, and she spends more time watching the predator scouts than fighting them, perhaps the Springbok people would have done well to try and stop the unbalanced young girl from causing more harm than good...
But Y, Tho?:
The idea of the quirky cat-girl is a fairly common archetype, but in the context of TFH, it takes on a very different meaning. In this universe, dressing up as a cat would be a little like dressing up as a skeleton after a worldwide report that a skeleton uprising is coming. You would either have to be a jerk, deluded, or both to think that's a good idea. This presents an opportunity for the cute, kawaii cat-girl to be placed in a more antagonistic role. This would also hopefully satiate those playable predator cravings without actually breaking canon. Plus her crouch animation could be an adorable wiggle, and we always need more of those.
