This isn't mandatory, but it helps others to know your character better. Feel free to fill it and post it up if you feel like it. You can post a picture to go with the form, if you want to and have one. By the way, here's the pony creator for your picture making pleasure.
For the record, your character doesn't need to be a pony. You can play a griffon or changeling or any other species you want.
Also, you're allowed to deviate from the presented form as long as your version still gives us the basics of the character. Some like to put in extra fields for strengths and weaknesses, so if you're inclined to do so, feel free to.
Post your character sheet as its own topic in this part of the forum.
How to fill it:
Name: your character's name. Any nicknames can be listed here too.
Age: foal/teenager/young adult/adult/elderly/immortal/who knows?
Looks: You can be as detailed as you want, but at the very least you should state your character's coat colour, mane colour, eye colour and cutie mark. And of course what kind of pony he is aka earth pony/unicorn/pegasus. If not a pony, then just describe everything necessary.
Personality: Describe what your character is like. No need to write a novel unless you want to, it's enough to point out the most prominent parts of his personality.
Family: This is where you can tell us if your character has a family of any sort. Pets count.
Other: For any extra info you want to share. The meaning of his cutie mark aka his special talent might be one good thing to share. Where does he live? What does he do for a living? Hobbies? Anything.
Name: Star Twinkle
Age: Young adult
Looks: He is a unicorn with indigo coat, long and straight yellow mane and tail with two blue strikes, orange-ish yellow eyes and three yellow stars as a cutie mark. He often carries yellow saddle bags on his back.
Personality: Playful and curious, he just loves to discover new things and can't help but search for more information about whatever he finds interesting. He is good with foals and loves to play with them, making the perfect baby sitter and big brother. However, he has the tendency to get too invested in things and often gets in trouble because he just can't quit.
Family: His father (Treetop) died a couple of years ago. He still has his mother (Aurora Borealis), big sister (Fire Heart) and little sister (Star Wish). His grandparents from mother's side live in Manehattan and have never been too interested in him, but his grandfather (Autumn Leaves) from father's side lives nearby and is very close to him. He owns a pet cat, Furface.
Other: His cutie mark represents his talent in astronomy, which is also what he does for living. He lives in Canterlot in his own apartment. He plays drums in a band.
