Oh and any questions?
RenaTamer's avatar
what dose he look like, main/tail/coat colors, any outstanding marks/scars, cutie mark
AngelFreddy's avatar
Wait.
First and second question, i already listed it in the first reply. and even gave the link to the picture. Third, he has a few marks on his chest from getting six magic bolts to the chest (you can't see it because of the coat). And last, I'm still stinking of a symbol of hope. So far its a sword surrounded by wings.

your first post came up under the more questions post, sorry, as for the drawing shows a gray colt with black main...

just wanted o know if there was more to him

(Joking) I'm insulted, you dare called a 500 year old male pony a colt.  He should be a stallion by now.

Well, Shadow Holyfield is a 500 years old Alicorn born in Manehattan and raised by 2 Neighponese Unicorns. He is the founder of a Security Private Military Company, call the Eclipse Guard and is held in the third oldest city Alicornia. As the grandmaster of this Mercenary army, he maintains the paperwork and lead the guards throughout Equestria and its allied countrys like the Crystal Empire or Neighpon. Even though he is an immortal god, to anyone outside of Alicornia and Canterlot Castle (With the mane 6) sees him as a young adult unicorn. That is because of his title as the 8th Shadow Mage Knight (More of that in your acount if you are curious). He shrouds himself in an illusion disguise to avoid the attention that the princesses bear. Just as Celestia is the goddess of sun, Luna the goddess of the moon and Cadence the goddess of love, Shadow Holyfield is the god of hope; a being that inspires all good ponies to pursue their dreams and gain hope along the way. As a warrior, he is skilled in multiple weapons such as katanas, staffs, crossbows, etc. Here is the link to his picture made by an old friend since I'm a terrible artist.www.deviantart.com/art/AngelFr…

the Drifter, if you can't tell by his cutie mark, is a necromancer... (not so much the pony of death, though he has dealt it out in spades) he commands the already dead, can raze an army of zombies and force them to do his bidding... and he is ashamed of this fact.  

there is more to his dark past... lots more.

he dose have a twin sister, who is in another story, she is a light green alicorn with an apple pie as a cutie mark, she represents growth and the harvest. her name is Cinnamon Appleton though later it was changed to Apple Cinnamon... she has used several different disguises over the past thousand years secretly lead the Apple family... her current disguise is that of a tottering old earth pony mare that everyone calls Granny Smith...

which explains why she hadn't aged much between Applejack's telling of how she got her cutie mark and 10 years later when Twilight first showed up.

Made a small error. Alicornia is third youngest city. It's a fortress citadel run by the mercs and is home to thousands of ponys. The ponies dwelling their are mixed such as unicorns, Pegasi, earth ponies, thestrals equestrian kirins and a few kirins of neighpon. It is one of many hubs of trade and melting pots.

Oh and i forgot, There are also secrets about Shadow. He's clairvoyant, can receive a glimpse of the future without any warning. He can also read memories of any ponies he headbutts (prefers not to do it because its painful and intrusive.)
There is also the sensing evil thing, but i believe its common with experienced warriors. Now about our categories of magic...
