Dark Stallion Summary And Bios

In one week, my fan fiction The Dark Stallion will make its world debut. I'll be releasing a few teasers until then. For now, here is the fanfic summary and original character bios.


A skilled unicorn in search of an ancient artifact. A lost pegasus who lost his memories. A wandering swordpony who wields his sword against evil. When these three colts cross paths with the Mane 6 in Ponyville, they begin encountering dark forces that suddenly befall the otherwise quiet town. Now they must team up to thwart the devious plans of the Shadow Clan and their mysterious leader, the Dark Stallion.

A 12-part epic fan fiction premiering Nov. 1.

Original Character Bios

Xander (Master Unicorn)
Created by BlameThe1st

A master spellcaster who graduated top honors from a prestigious military academy, no other unicorn can match the magical powress of Xander—except, perhaps, for Twilight Sparkle. Though his magic is otherwise unsurpassed, not so much are his social skills, what with him being a recluse who rarely desires interaction with other ponies.

As the son of a late great archeologist, when his father tragically passed away years ago, Xander took it upon himself to find the ancient artifact his father had long been searching for. His search has since taken him to Ponyville. What is this artifact for which he desperately seeks, and does it have anything to do with the mysterious Shadow Clan that has befallen the town?

Skywind (Amnesiac Pegasus)
Originally created by ex626AKAKeon

Not much is known about this pegasus colt. Not even he knows anything about himself. He simply fell out of the sky one day and would have crashed to his death had it not been for the heroic feats of Rainbow Dash. Other than his own name, Skywind, he knows nothing else.

Having lost his memories, he finds himself lost in a town he never heard of and surrounded by ponies he does not know. Fortunately, he has Rainbow Dash by his side to aid him and help him return his lost memories. The two soon form a special bond with their love for flying fast and having fun doing so. But the question remains: who is he, and what is he doing in Ponyville? And does his mysterious appearance have anything to do with the sudden appearance of the Shadow Clan?

Ninja Star (Wandering Swordpony)
Originally created by Ninja-8004

A sojourning swordpony from a far-off land, his travels have taken him through Equestria where he has been tracking down and fighting off the mysterious Shadow Clan. His journey has since taken him to Ponyville where he has discovered that the Shadow Clan has now targeted the Mane 6. Though he does not know much about the Clan’s intentions in Ponyville, he is determined to remain there until the evil has been vanquished.

True to his name, this earth pony is an armor-clad warrior skilled in the art of the ninja. He can wield a katana, throw a kunai, toss a shuriken, run fast, and disappear and reappear on a whim. With a heart as pure as gold, he is willing to risk his safety to fight and defend the defenseless. It is for this reason that he has taken a liking to Fluttershy—or rather, she to him—and has agreed to train her to defend herself. But will he be able to defend her and the rest of the town against the Shadow Clan?
