=Bio=
Personality: The years have made him cold and to the point. He is not one for words but when it comes to combat and planning he will have a lot to say and will be very blunt about it, there is no point sugar coating it. He is calm and can remain that way even under presser. He is also battle harden. One thing he will not stand for is seeing innocent people come to harm and will put himself in harms way to protect them.

He keeps his past to himself giving very few details if he is pushed on the matter of his Military days. He has spent a long time coming to teams with the things he has seen and the ponies that have been lost or sent to their deaths by his order, but he is more willing to put himself in harm’s way then others as he feels he feels to many young lives have been lost. Has a strong hatred for the griffons but will not blindly sell out his life to just kill one he will never put his trust in one as well.


History: Steel Prism a member of the Guard that was station at Canterlot when the war started this was the first time he had seen real battle, but the same was for many of the other Guard. The events of those few hours it took the griffons to take the city went so fast it all seemed a blur to him at the time and he is still not sure how he lived through that day.

With Morale low and the griffons pushing there was no time for rest because he was not a Pegasus he couldn't help in Cloudsdale so was sent to Stalliongrad. Here was where his skills as a fighter were tested and where he showed to have a good mind. He was given a squad to command. He learned to use teleport to great effect over the course of the fighting. He did take minor wounds over the battle but theses would be the start of the scars that would cover his body

Because of how well he did in the battle for Stalliongrad when they heard reports that the griffons where to make a move on Trottingham he was re-station there along with a large number of troops. He was again given command of a small unit once again. With this unit he make a number of attack ageist the ballista and arbalest that the griffons where using to bombard the city, with the shield protecting them they felt that they could hold out till the griffon forces were defeated. On the third week the shield mysteriously failed it was like the attack Canterlot all over again but this time with ballista and arbalest. The fight was lost at this point and the griffons where taking no one alive and killing Mare’s and filly's when they tried to escape.

It was a slaughter and even sending a message of surrender did not stop the bombardment. Steel Prism and what was left of his unit got together the very few Civilians that they could get. They where some of the very few people that made it out alive but at a cost, Steel Prism lost the use of his right eye that day as well as taking a number of severe wounds and his hatred of the griffons become engraved on his soul.

This put Steel Prism out of the war for many months with his body healing he looked to better his magic this was when he learnt that he could use his magic to shield his mind from the pain of battle for a short time this was a spell that would help him push himself that extra bit to get out of harm’s way or together others to safely. The war turned into a stalemate at this point and it gave him the time to he needed to recover. He was honoured for his bravery in the battle at Trottingham in getting Civilians to safety at also the cost of his own life.

Once he had recovered from his wounds he very quickly rejoin the fight with a new found drive to make the griffons pay for what they had done.
He soon found himself at the rank of Captain leading larger number of troops but this would be a testing time of him as leading a larger number of troops meant he would see more of them killed or having to give them orders that would result in their deaths.

He found himself at the battle of Manehatten even though they where well dug in and the griffons used many tactics a few he managed to counter over the course of the month and a half, but it was going to come down to numbers and on the seventh week the griffons where willing to send their men to their deaths if it meant they would with this battle they held out for two days and Steel Prism fighting hard even when he had taken a number of wounds. When it was decided that this battle was lost he was tasked with sending 100 ponies to their deaths so the others could escape, he would have stayed as well if the General had let him but his skills where seen has to valuable to lose.

After this event he was pulled from commanding a large number of troops and it felt that the events of Manehatten had affected him deeply and he was moved to guerrilla warfare as his time in Stalliongrad and Trottingham showed he was good at this and he was given his own unit working close with a number of other units and the buffalo’s that operated in the area of the Mild West and Buffalo lands, making sure to stall the griffons forces long enough to ensure that every Buffalo and pony were able to get out. He made some very close friends with in the other guerrilla units and Buffalos.   After working like this for over a year he was even given the chance to become one of the generals be he refused not wanting the role to send large number of ponies to their deaths.

When it comes to the 2nd battle of Stalliongrad he was there, he could be counted as one of the many hero's that this war had made but he would refused to be counted as one of them. In this battle he once again worked with his guerrilla warfare unit that he had been part of over the years. The fighting was long and hard and they knew that they were fighting for everything their lives for Equestria. The fight was going well for the Ponies he stopped for a short break when things looked to be coming to an end but he soon worked out that the griffons were doing they was use the feint retreat tactic something he had used many times before to setup ambushes then the worse feeling fell over him when he knew there was nothing he could do to stop them falling into that trap, he wasn't part of the command or anywhere near them to inform them of this, all he could do was watch as the last hope for Equestria fall.

After that fight and what was left of the ponies forces had fallen back and regrouped, he was part of the group that planned their next strategy along with what was left of the forces generals. Once everything had been worked out and the plan laid out he chose to lead the forces to Canterlot knowing he would die in the attack. Those that had gotten to know Steel Prism over the years tried to talk him out of this knowing he would be going to his death, but there was no talking him out of it his mind was made up.

The march to Canterlot was long and his body hurt from the years of battle and wounds that covered it but he had one more job to do before he could be at rest. He led the attack from the front, not many made it into the city but he was one of the few that did. Even with the years of fighting and the experiences he had he knew there was no hope of winning but that didn't matter to him he was going to take down as many griffons as he could before he could rest.

He didn't remember when he blacked out or why he did all he knew was that he woke up 2 weeks later in a small village out of way and Zebra by the name of Emerald Dancer had found him on deaths door. She got him back to full heath as much to his dismay and her having no answers to why or how he got there just made him angrier.

Over the next 2 years he stayed with the village as he recovered from his wounds. Once he had his strength back he then started to help them out with framing even though they was out of the way griffons would still come to get there taxes and food. But when they wear collecting the harvest in the 2nd year of him being there a mare come into the town. She was looking to recruit people into a rebellion. He didn't leave right away but finished building up his heath and complete that years harvest before leaving the village to fine this mare once again to help build this rebellion.

(I am not sure what you will say about this background but when I have an idea for a Character I just have to write it. Sorry it got a bit long but hopes it was a good read.)

Special Skills/Abilities/Spells Descriptions:
Most spells he will use are defence once. He is a skilled fighter but his age and old wounds have slowed him down and very skilled in guerrilla warfare

Transporting (spell): can teleport up to 8 ponies safely after this number it starts to get harder. He can teleport a group this size up to 4 times a day, can push to take more but can become dangerous for himself or the others ponies. (E.g. only part of them makes it)

Push the limit (spell): Can use this spell once a day and last up to 30mins or for . A spell he learnt after losing his eye he can use his magic to push his body past what it can normally take and keep going not feeling the pain even from severe wounds. Once the spell wears off he feels it all at once the following shock could kill him. Wound that would killing would still killing he will just not feel it.

This character certainly could be interesting. Unfortunately, even without being mod, I can tell you that you'll have to work over the complete history again.

The Rules wrote:8) No canon characters! You are not allowed to play as a canon character. You are not allowed to create one as an NPC, you are not allowed to know one, and you are not allowed to be related to one except in a special case. You would have to be a trusted, veteran member to be allowed to do this.

Not everypony can have known the mane 6 or the princesses, and to avoid members feeling treated unfairly, it's forbidden for everypony. Your history won't do, because you're defining a lot of canon for the Mane 6, where they have been and so on. So far, there's probably hardly any canon at all about them, and if this ever changes, it probably won't be because a player character needs it a certain way.

My suggestion is that you try to keep the history as much as possible, while removing every reference to canon characters. You most likely won't like this, but this is the way it is, and making exceptions without really good reasons simply doesn't work, sorry. It should still be possible to play a high ranked commanding officer, so the general idea of this character hopefully isn't destroyed for you.

Other points that might come up:
- How far can he teleport with how many ponies?
- This "Push the limit", how long does it need to wear off, and how long does it take until he could use it again?
- Possibly add a bit more to personality, especially casting a light on negative character traits.

Well, I'll leave the rest to Steel Strike. Overall I'm curious what will become of Steel Prism ^^

missed the bit where you are not allowed to know one. :/

I think it should be fine only main things would be the guerrilla unit that was with Applejack but I think I can change it so he was the head of his own unit even though was going to keep him away from command after seening the 100 ponies to there deaths but head of his own guerrilla unit should be find and change it he learn the spell Push the limt after losing his eye as him knowing that he could save more people if he wasn't in a lot of pain would fit in ok.

I am looking into what sort of stuff to do with the teleport as don't want to make it to over powered but at the mo thinking safe teleport would be 6-10. as for the push the limt was thinking once day thing and going to have a think about how long for but thinking lasting from 10-30mins.

Wouldn't you have to know Military combat to understand military tactics? You could just smush those two together.

Also 4'12 = 5' ^_^ I like this character and can't wait to see him finished.
