Name- Tinder

Race- Unicorn

Age- 26

Cutie Mark- Shard of ice with a flame inside. As seen here-

Appearance- A very tall, overly skinny unicorn. Her mane is a bright red and her coat a bright orange. Her mane and tail are mid length but quite shaggy and messy most of the time, simply because of her being too lazy and tired most of the time to really care. Her eye's are a dull yellow, which matches up with her magic. She is rarely ever without the large light brown saddle bag strapped to her. The only time you will see her without it is when she is wearing her long black cloak which covers all of her other then her neck and head, and when she puts the hood up it covers that as well. There is a reason why she wears these things, but all in good time.

Backstory- Born to a family of fire wielding unicorns Tinder always felt not quite right there. They lived quite far from any towns so her family was all she knew for the first few years of her life. She was home schooled and taught only fire magic, other then the basic spells. Tinder could never get the hang of it, she would always end up getting burned whenever she tried it. One day while studying in her room, reading through the same book she's read through a thousand times, trying to get the hang of simply lighting a small log on fire; a basic thing in her family. But instead of lighting it on fire she ended up freezing all the moisture in the log. She didn't understand what she had done but she kept doing it, practicing in secret because it was so easy compared to fire magic. After a couple weeks of practice, becoming fairly skilled in the craft of freezing things and making ice, she got her cutie mark. She quickly covered it the best she could, wearing large shirts and cloaks around the house to hide it. But unfortunately that didn't work for very long. Her family saw this and realized what she could do, they thought this was appalling and they removed her from the household because of it. Leaving her to wander alone as a child.

After being disowned by her family she wandered for a while, practicing her magic while searching for a new home. She found one soon enough, she had managed to make her way to Manehattan, where a group of homeless took her in and raised her. They taught her how to steal, helped her get food and took care of her they best they could. She kept practicing her magic and eventually could make statues of ice, and the more she practiced, the more elaborate these statues became. As time went on she found ways to support herself, selling things she stole, selling ice sculptures for events. Soon enough she had enough to get herself an apartment, though far from a good one. Just something to keep her off the streets, and to help the people who had taken care of her for all those years. She lived in that apartment for a fairly long time, continuing to steal and pickpocket to help keep the place going, even though she had a proper job at a restaurant at this point in her life. With stealing came trouble though, trouble with the law, trouble with stealing from the wrong people. And with said trouble came injuries, bad ones. It's because of these injuries that she started taking pain killers and never stopped. When her own magic started going on the fritz and causing her injuries, she never thought it could be the pain killers and just started taking more to dull the pain.

After living there till she was around 23 she had enough money to finally get out of there and move to somewhere nice, somewhere that no one knew her yet. And that's why she moved to Ponyville. Living in a ramshackle of a house on the edge of town and working at a nearby archery range. Her ability to sculpt her own weapons out of ice proving useful there as she uses her magic to make arrows or throwing daggers out of ice for the customers. Though her thievery is still a main source of income, and she needs it to try to keep herself out of trouble with the not so nice people she buys her pain killers from.

So now she's 26, still trying to figure out her way in this place. Finally taking time to travel and to actually enjoy herself.

Abilities- Make her own weapons from ice, pick pocketing, creating ice/ freezing things.

Weaknesses- Certain injuries that she keeps hidden. Her struggles to sleep because of nightmares often leaves her exhausted. Inability to be in overly hot climates.

Fears- Fire. The people she buys her pain killers from coming after her. Her family.

(If you have any complaints or concerns about this character, just shoot me a message and I'll answer it when I next get online.)
