Mane: Brown and curly in a large tangled mass. Very unkempt.
Tail: Exact same as mane.
Eyes: Indigo irises with a monocle on the left eye. He wears it because only his left eye has bad eyesight and it adds a bit of class.
Body: Taller than most ponies with a bit of fat from lack of activity.
Cutie Mark: A book with a knight chess piece on the cover.
Personality: Very polite and reserved around strangers and may seem to be a bit awkward when meeting new ponies. He does come out of his shell and becomes very outgoing and playful, but only when around friends, or if nothing is currently on his mind. Will do nearly anything for those he calls true friends.
Likes: Being around friends, reading history books, writing, thinking, board games, sneaking, pranks.
Dislikes: Card games (never took the time to learn any), being talked to while running errands, being late.
History: It'll take me forever to write out a story and even longer for me to edit it, so here's a list of key points.
Indigo was born 11 months after his father's birthday (11-12 months being a horse's pregnancy period, surprise!).
Homeschooled by his mother on the family's rural property.
Realized his special purpose from playing war, chess, and other board games. His talent being unconventional tactics.
Wanted to join the military like other older members of his family, but his mother kept him from it and later decided to abandon it altogether when he realized how much he loves his own individuality.
Learned business from his father and gardening and open mindedness from mother.
Left home from disagreements with his father, wandering to find his own place and surviving by doing odd jobs.
