I created Torpy Pony in my head back in November, but I still can't picture what he should look like, are his colors, traits, etc. Maybe I can get some inspiration from y'all.
1st Torpidus Loaf, means one who is lazy, in hibernation, and in consent rest. How I see all you fat stupid kids......I mean you lovely youth of today. I kind of pictured some pony who is smart and creative but is held back by a sleeping disorder known as narcolepsy.
2nd, not completely lazy, he gets out with friends and enjoys metal or punk concerts, cause the loud music helps keep him awake. His metal-head friends from grade school are protective over him, and drag him out of the house a lot to do things. Backstory, involves a potion regiment that kinda helps keep him awake, other wise he would be falling asleep mid walk.
3rd, I was gonna use him as metaphor for all the Gamer channels and streamers. Just the laziest form of video content, compared to other video creators who have to write scripts, act out, animate, and edit their videos together. But Gaming channels like Mixer and twitch it's just watching some guy/girl playing in front of a camera. Some times they are entertaining to watch, like for their reactions or how they interact with the comment boards.
4th, I have an idea for a story where he has a great awaken and transforms into a major protagonist. Like in the animes; where the quiet kid ends up in some major events that turn him into the badass super powered hero. But I'm trying to avoid being a Gary Stu story, he's gonna have to earn his power ups.
