Covin Si'hal was one of nine children to be born to the king and queen of the distant nation of Ehsia. He was the fifth youngest child of the nine, and was known throughout his childhood for his tendency to explore and discover with or without permission. He had managed to get himself in trouble for his actions more than a handful of times, but overall his parents were quite impressed with how quickly he was able to adapt to new situations, and also with how easily he could find something new to discover in the most mundane tasks and places. Even when he was old enough to be assigned a private tutor, still quite young then, he quickly went through a large variety of lessons that many of his other siblings had found difficult to grasp at best.
This routine course of action went on for a year or two after Covin had been assigned a tutor, but then, some time during one of his many lessons, his cutie mark appeared. The quill and book with the Ehsian royal symbol on it really weren't too much of a surprise to the people around him, though at that point in time his parents decided that it would be a good idea to divert his tutoring to a new direction. When this decision had taken place, Covin's parents had also thought that having their son as an ambassador for their country would be the best course of action in that situation, as he would be able to travel the world and experience new things while being able to fully represent his country thanks to his family and prior education. And so, from that day onward, lessons on the various aspects of known foreign nations and the responsibilities and meaning of an ambassador's occupation were stacked on top of the already advanced teaching that Covin was receiving, and he trained throughout the following years to take on his responsibility as one of the next ambassadors for his country.
When Covin reached his teen years, he was assigned his own personal body guard and servant (Odin Tru'kal
) and began going out of the country to attend various important events and diplomatic meetings, in order to learn more about the other nations throughout the world and their relations with his homeland. He discovered how much he enjoyed seeing what the world had to offer, and became even more excited about his future than he had already been. So, througout the years Covin traveled to the various nations to be found throughout the world, always with one of the few currently-appointed ambassadors in order to continue his education in a more hands-on sense.Present-
In recent times, Covin's father had decided that it was time for him to finally go take on his nearing responsibilities on his own, and so he had his son sent to Equestria without the assistance of another, more experienced pony. His servant, Odin, had come along to ensure Covin's safety and to make sure that the young stallion would be able to carry out his given task to its fullest extent. The to-be-"official" ambassador now lives in the Equestrian capital of Canterlot with his appointed servant, and does his father's bidding to improve relations between Equestria and Ehsia.
Example RP segment: #5 - A colt is bullying a filly in the Manehattan street. When your OC looks to him, he turns to your OC and snaps, "What're you looking at?" Given your OC’s personality, compose a brief narrative in which your OC identifies and addresses the situation.
Covin walked through some of the more isolated streets of Manehattan as he approached the nicer districts of the city, looking to meet with a well-known businesspony that was living there, in accordance to his father's will. From what he had been told, it seemed that his father, the King of Ehsia, wanted to learn more about the economic situation of Equestria, which was why he was there in the first place. He had decided to go to this stranger on his own, sending his servant out to the market to find them some basic supplies after a slight bit of argument.
In any case, as he walked through the Manehattan streets, Covin slowed his pace when he saw a colt bullying a filly next to a rundown building located on the street he was walking along. The Earth Pony cocked his head and approached the two ponies, and when the colt noticed him he whipped his head around to look at him and spoke in a venomous tone."What're you looking at?"
Covin thought about that for a second. Was that a trick question? "Well...you, of course. Where else did I appear to be looking?""Hmph, you tryin' to mock me!? Get lost!"
Covin didn't move as the colt turned back to the filly, watching him attempt to threaten her. After a few moments of watching idly, he spoke again. "Why are you doing that?"
The colt turned back to him once again. "Whaddaya mean why am I doing that? I'm big, she's small. I'm strong, she's weak. I get mad when I'm annoyed, and you're annoying me. That so hard to understand?"
Covin shook his head. "No, I think I understand now."
The stallion suddenly moved forward at the bully with practiced speed and precision and grabbed the colt, spinning him around and holding him up against another part of the building wall, putting slight force on the pony's throat and never losing his friendly expression.
"So since I am bigger and stronger than you, this is what I am supposed to do, correct?"
The colt blinked a few times as he registered what had just happened, and a slight glimmer of fear could be seen in his eyes. "U-um, y-yeah, j-just like that. Awesome job. Um, but, you know, you don't want to practice on someone like me, right? I-I mean you owe me for telling you that, right?"
Covin cocked his head. "But why not have an expert on this judge me for the first try?""Well, um, yeah, but- I mean, that's a good point, but you don't want me to get hurt because of your...amateur...actions, do you?"
Covin pretended to think about that for a second, and then dropped the colt. "I suppose that makes sense."
The colt rubbed his throat as he stepped away from the stallion. "Y-yeah, but great job. Um, but, I have to go now, soooo bye!"
With that the young bully turned around and ran from his attacker.
Covin watched the young pony run away, and then turned to the mare from before, who had watched the whole scene once she had been freed. With a grateful tone, she spoke."W-wow! That was great! Thanks a lot, mister!"
Covin chuckled. "Oh, there is no need to thank me. I cannot let someone like that bully a sweet young mare such as yourself. Now go on home and watch yourself, alright?"
The filly nodded quickly as she smiled. "Ok, mister! Thanks again!"
The young pony then turned around and began to trot home, looking quite happy and relieved.
