Name: Ariston
Gender: Stallion
Age: Youngster
Height: 15.1 hh
Breed Conformation was based on: Australian Stock Horse
Coat Colour: Dappled warm mahogany Bay
Eye Colour: Deep Brown
Face Markings: Small star
Other Markings: 2 socks, 1 pastern, 1 white heel
Herd: Celestial
Power/Energy/Ability: TBD

Ariston is very sweet, timid, shy but very loving. He hasn't changed much since he was a foal. He spends most of his time with his best friend Venus, although as he matured he's realised that he actually has very strong feelings for her...but of course he'll never admit it, he's far too nervous.
Ariston sticks rigidly to the rules. This doesn't mean that his friends agree with this, they drag him along on their adventures regardless of how strongly he opposes to breaking the rules. He tends to not like surprises, he'd rather be completely prepared and have his whole day planned out, knowing what to expect.
He's also extremely honest, if an unbiased and completely truthful account of a story or event is needed, Ariston is the first horse any herd member will ask. This can result in him getting himself and his friends into trouble.
Ariston can also tend to be quite emotional. He gets very attached to objects, or certain horses, and being without them can sometimes leave him a little distressed. but deep down, he can be a very strong horse. He will fight for those he loves with his life, without question. He is truly altruistic.
Everybody loves Ariston, how could you not like such a sweet young stallion?

Other info: Ariston was named an Ancient Greek philosopher.

I do wonder what his powers are going to be, you've decided on the other colts and Venus and Gaia. I'd feel he'd have something like high intelligence, kinda like Mordin. But it's your call.

Sadly, I cannot see this poor boy without thinking "Smell my face" from the bloopers of Young Innocence. XD He's such a lovely sweetheart, though. :D

He hasn't got a particularly unusual colour compared to the other main characters, but I love Ariston's simplicity.
