I...am admittedly taking one BIG gamble with this character. Here's hoping it doesn't blow in my face. *crosses fingers in hope*Wilson Percival Higgsbury
(The human pic is official art from the game http://www.dontstarvegame.com/.)
Species: Human/Earth Pony
Mane: Black and spiky, normally staying behind and out of his face, he also has a black goatee as well
Tail: Black and relatively long, almost touching the ground even when standing
Body: His fur is a pale-peach color and he wears a red vest over what looks like a white shirt with buttons going down the front of both. All four of his hooves are tipped with black and under his front-left hoof is a mark going across from when he cut open his palm as a human.
Cutie Mark: A smoking chemical beaker filled with a red liquid
Age (Baby,adult): Adult, is actually roughly 30 human years old
Personality: He is both highly-intelligent and socially-stupid to put this politely. While he's intelligent enough to possibly figure out a way to mimic Discord's vast power through science and technology and use it to everypony's benefit, he's also just as able to wind up getting into an argument over social norms he's not following that's plainly obvious to everyone else. Due to this, he often tries to observe his surroundings before participating in many things, just to get a foothold in what's going on. He also is naturally curious, which can and HAS gotten him in serious trouble before. He also tends to keep his negative emotions bottled up to keep from worrying those around him, though this eventually leads to him going insane for a short period of time when his emotions reach a fever pitch. While insane, he's a scary mix of both Twilight and Pinkie Pie's brands of insanity, making him a danger to himself and those around him. While Equestria's magic is slowly healing this aspect, it's still a present danger and he's fully aware of it. Since he's still a human in soul and mind, he still tends to use phrases that better suit a human instead of a pony, such as 'anyone' instead of 'anypony'.
Likes: Discovering new (to him) things about the world he's in, finding ways to alter/break the apparent laws of nature and magic with the power of science (this is linked to his cutie mark!), working with the technology present in Equestria due to how familiar some of them are to the machines from his world and time, finding ponies willing to befriend him despite his rather-alien nature
Dislikes: Going insane, being forced to recall the days from between when he was home one Earth and his times spent in Equestria, one of his experiments blowing in his face/muzzle for the umpteenth time
History: Wilson was originally a human, a scientist trapped by a demonic entity in a cruel, harsh world meant to torture the ones caught within. After enduring many trials and suffering many points of his mental sanity shattering into bits, he finally realized that he knew how to get home all that time and got to working on a modified version of the portal he was tricked into building. However, something was wrong. Instead of finding himself pulled back to his small home in the USA during the 1920s, he found himself in yet another strange and oddly-colorful world and became shocked that he had taken the form of an equine. And that was only the beginning of the surprises in store as the magic of the world of Equestria strives to heal his wounded heart before it can finally return him to his true home.
Example RP segment:
3. It is pouring rain outside. Your OC spots the light of a tavern up ahead. The tavern is filled with ponies that your OC doesn't know. Given your OC’s personality, compose a brief narrative in which your OC identifies and addresses the situation.
(Me, brief? Not likely to happen, folks.)
Wilson walked with a slight limp in one of his forelegs as he moved through the rain, still shaken by his sudden and unceremonious arrival in this otherwise colorful world. Some of his black bangs had managed to fall in front of his face, which he tried to move to the side with a black-tipped hoof. It was wierd being in the form of an equine, but at least it was better than what he had recently escaped from.
Finding an empty table in a corner, the drenched soul tried to shake out the water in his pale fur, thankfully not hitting anyone in the process. Looking around him, he could see many equines, ponies as he's heard them refer to themselves, enjoying their time out of the rain and enjoying a bubbling glass of apple cider. Even the little fillies and colts were drinking from the glasses, which piqued his natural curiosity a bit. Back home, cider didn't bubble like that unless alcohol was added as well and that was a forbidden thing to drink in any form. Is it possible that the ponies here are unaffected by the mind-warping affects of the drink?
Right before he raised a hoof to try and get himself a drink, he spotted an exchange at a nearby table with his brownish-orange eyes. It appeared that to get a glass of apple cider, needed to give one of the employees here 'Bits'. That was understandable, a concept he was already used to. What surprised him was what these 'Bits' seemed to be, small circles of gold with their denomination engraved upon them. Seeing this and knowing he didn't have any of the accepted currency, he settled with laying down his head on the table as his face adopted a disappointed look, his stomach grumbling at him silently.
