Star catchers are a breed of Pony that have a plant-like tail

At the end of this tail there is a bud, this bud can be opened or closed at will. However there is no flower inside of it.
A Star catcher wanders the earth looking for falling stars.

Should they find one, they then pick up the broken star and place it within the bud on their tail, keeping it closed tightly around the broken star.
Over a period of time (within a couple of days) the bud begins to swell in size and glow softly.
Once the glow has reached its peak the Star Catcher will open the bud, revealing a soft semi-permeable membrane with an unbroken, glowing star inside.

The star, after being encased in the bud has not only been healed (so it is no longer broken) but has also been given life and become known as Star Seeds.
They can Breathe, they can eat, they can speak, they can move on their own if it comes to it, they can choose to leave the Star Catchers' bud and venture the world, but if they wander to far, the life begins to fade and they start to become nothing but a lifeless star again.
The reason for this is because the Star Seed's life force is directly connected to its Star Catcher.
Whether they are an earth pony, a unicorn, or a pegasus, they all have magic. Enough to grow a Star seed.

Most of them only have 1 star. The Star Seeds are all different sizes so two or more could POSSIBLY fit, but the thing is most only have 1 Star Seed.
2 or more would be exceptionally rare, and even looked down on by the rest of the species. To have more than 1 star would be more or less considered as if they were betraying their Star Seed. Also, since the Star Seed survives by draining the magic from the Star Catcher itself, the Star Catcher would easily become sick if it had more than 1. It would be a constant drain on the Star Catcher by however many Star Seeds it has. Because of this it makes it easier for them to get sick, some go insane, and others the strain is so much that it kills them. Its rare and its highly looked down upon, so most of the Star Catchers will not accept another star.

Star Catchers are able to have foals, just like any other ponies. However the foals are born without Star Seeds except in RARE cases!!!!

Star Catchers are unable to earn cutie marks.

Please do not add any extra Star Seeds to your Star Catcher without my permission. This is a rare trait.

I'm sorry but I actually don't sell the rights to make them. It's something I'd like to keep as a privilege for close friends ^^; but I am appreciative of your interest. You're more than welcome to buy a MYO if you'd like to create one for yourself.
