I got a new Pony figurine while shopping Saturday. I plan on playing Ponyfinder with my niece soon. Her birthday party was Saturday. Mostly I was shopping for her and I did get her a series 4 mystery box for herself. I opened mine and got the Mane-iac Mayhem figurine.
Mane-iac Mayhem makes me think of a witch from Pathfinder with the prehensile hair hex. I can use her to make a first level witch pony. Green hair means an antagonist that switches to the side of good in manga.
The figurines eyes have irises of red surrounded by green. My Little Pony is all about finding the good inside ponies aka people. So looking at auras, because that is how I figure out the meaning of eye colors for all my characters with their bad aspects for a villain I get:
Red: Rules the emotional body. In a good, bright and pure state, red energy can serve as a healthy ego. The lesson of Red is to take full responsibility for everything that happens in our lives. Our struggle with attachments on the physical plane, materialistic, money worries or obsessions. The densest color, it creates the most friction, easily excited, unforgiveness, feeling overwhelmed by change, anxiety or nervousness, fear, intense emotion, anger, frustration. On the verge of confrontation. Used to create horrific suffering with power, the urge to win, to have success, intensity of experience, struggle, competition, force of will, determination, sense of importance, or merely increases physical energy.
Green: Green is social and a doer. When seen in the aura this usually represents growth and balance, and most of all, something that leads to change. Intelligent, direct, quick thinker. Here is the energy that sparks our imagination and creativity. Deeply focused and adaptable. Healing, a natural healer, the healer and the nurturer of life. All natural healers should have it. People with a green strong point in their Auras are natural healers. The stronger the green Aura, the better the healer. Green represents Jealousy and envy, frustration, losses, Fear or the need for security.
Once Mane-iac Mayhem comes to the side of the player characters she will be a healer, which since witches have access to healing spells this does fit very well. But first they need to get passed her jealousy and anger towards the party over a loss she thinks they caused. See how looking at the bad meaning of auras can provide the perfect starting plot points?
Now if Mane-iac Mayhem is going to be changing sides she cannot be the Big Damn Evil, Mastermind, Boss, or whatever you want to call the head villain. I prefer Big Damn Evil or BDE for dealing with the children. Like Tolkien with Saruman, I don’t need to know who the BDE is at the beginning I just need to know they exist.
I still have a lot of time to plan but there is time. I still have to set up a when for the campaign after all.
