Mane:A mixture of light purple and dark blue
Tail: same as mane
Body: Darker purple
Cutie Mark: A red-cloth bindle and a deck of velvet-blue backed cards with a 0 on the back of the top one.
Age (Baby,adult): Young Adult
Personality: While he can come across as rather cold at first, Scryer is a caring individual, devoted to his craft; he enjoys helping others with his fortunetelling and is very fond of foals. He is very clear with things he does not like and will not hesitate to speak up if something is angering him.
Likes: Mares and stallions equally (in a romantic sense), helping others, his fortunetelling, the smell of the inside of his caravan, Pegasi (he is jealous of the freedom their wings grant them).
Dislikes: Those who write off his fortunetelling as a simple parlor trick, those who pay him no heed and then complain, excessive violence, and miserable weather.
History: Scryer was born in Canterlot and practiced magic from a young age; while he wasn't the most social individual, having only a few friends, he was quite capable, learning basic magics with ease. He eventually grew bored of it, however, which lead him to discovering his true talent. One day, while reading in the library, he discovered fortunetelling magics. While his parents thought them to be just an illusion, at his behest, they eventually purchased him several tools; a crystal ball, incense, special teas, but none really reacted to his magic. One day, he found an old deck of tarot cards; a complete set with both Major and Minor Arcana cards, with a note from its previous owner, that said "I know the one who will inherit these will do great work with them... keep them close at hoof." There was no name, but a picture, though Scryer was sure that whoever drew it was not a good artist; after all, no ponies had a nose as large as that picture's subject.
He honed his fortunetelling with the cards, which reacted quite a bit to his magic; his readings, though occasionally on the cryptic side, always turned out correct. After he graduated from school, he purchased a smallish caravan; using a transformation spell, he turned it into a figurine which he kept in his saddlebag. He traveled from town to town, telling fortunes to ponies using his Tarot cards. He made a decent living doing so, eventually coming to Ponyville...
(Additional note; for those who are curious as to what he sounds like, look up a Persona 3 Portable video in English and listen to Theodore's voice. That's what he sounds like.)
