Harbinger Derpy Hooves by Rhanite Harbinger Derpy Hooves by Rhanite
The sign of Ascending Muffins shines bright in the night sky, and Derpy joins the Exalts as a Chosen of Journeys!

Under the Harbingers' ministration, commodities move unhindered toward their destiny at the end of the road.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic 2010-2011 Lauren Faust (Studio B Productions, Hasbro Studios, The Hub )

Exalted 2006 White Wolf Publishing

Oh, and question: I'm thinking to add Octavia to the list... but what caste and exalt do you guys think matches her?

I have no idea what Exalted is, but I LOVE your art of ponies in armor and clothes.

I had often thought that Derpy would work out better, as, well... A Derpon-Blooded.
Air Aspect, natch. :P

This correlates rather awesomely to a Sidereal NPC my Circle (Solars: Loud, Proud and In Your Face!) has been dealing with recently. Tonight my character (Twilight sorcerer optimized for craft, lore, occult and sorcery) managed to completely derail the session by accidentally calling Unending Axiom (the Sidereal NPC) Derpy Hooves. I got five bonus EXP for making the group go nuts with laughter, and then the Sidereal got pissed off at us (NOT MY FAULT!) and now an Army of demons is coming to Nexus. Along with troops from the Realm who "just want to help out" and elements of the 7th Legion from Lookshy. This can only end in awesome, or several consecutive uses of Total Annihilation (I can do it).

Well, the thing is that our storyteller has been playing Unending Axiom much like I imagine Derpy to be, an easily distracted public servant with generally good intentions. The only problem came when our Night caste (The Limitless Wonder, aka Facepalm) managed to limit break right as we were talking to her. Beserk Rage, and he's in armor that puts him outside of Fate Sight. The first thing he saw was Unending Axiom, and he chose not to spend a willpower to keep partial control for the scene. Thus, Nexus is quite possibly screwed.

Derpy+Bloody-eyed Burning Jewel: We're all screwed. Granted, I think she's a bit too friendly to pull something like that, but I'm just saying that there's some major stunting potential there.

Virtue: Muffins! I mean, Conviction.

I love the patterning on the edge of the robe, and the cutie mark saddlebag buckle. The only small problem is that the gold aura kind of blends in with her hair and eyes, so it becomes kind of subtle.

As for Octy... hmmmm... my instinct says a Terrestrial. Wood and Earth both fit, depending on what you decide is behind the cool facade, but I think it's Wood.

Since the Mane Cast is all the Solar castes.... And I assume you don't want to touch The Emo-ssal Exalted... Wood Aspect might work. Such a love of her preformances and such.

Bwahahahahahah! Unhindered except by the occasional botched roll you mean! Or...was dropping a flower pot, anvil, hay cart full of hay, and a piano part of some Sidereal shenanigans? Come to think of it, that moving van didn't look like it had room for both a hay cart and a piano inside it...

The obvious answer to which caste Octavia ought to belong would be Chosen of Serenity or a Wood Aspect Dragon Blood, but like so many obvious answers, these are wrong. She is far too sober for the Cerulean Lute or a child of Sextes Jylis. No, I see her more as a Chosen of Endings. Note how none of the orchestra members are visible after the Pony Pokey scene? That's Sidereal stealth at work. The Rube Goldberg-like sequence of events - Pinkie Pie's stage dive catapulting the cake towards Rarity and Blueblood, Blueblood backing away from the cake-coated Rarity and bumping into the statue just hard enough for it to slowly tip over so that Rainbow Dash could zip over and catch it only to find that she couldn't quite balance the heavy, awkward object causing her to stumble so that the statue hit a column at the perfect angle to knock it over into the next which fell into the next, etc. like dominoes and THEN the animals were unleashed on the stunned party guests throwing them into complete panic and disarray - that is how one engineers the End of a party before things escalate and someone dies. Also, Heaven's Gardeners have violet irises...just like Octavia. Why was she there? Whose life did she save with such an improbable string of events? You'd have to ask Big Macintosh...but you have to ask the right question since that Oracle rarely says more than "Eeyup".

Interesting... unexpected, but it makes sense. I like...
Though with her comportment and her position in Canterlot, she seems more like a Terrestrial to me. Either one is good, I guess!

Ooh...a Chosen of Saturn. Okay, yeah I could see that. So classy and silent. And if she's Bronze Faction it makes the Pony Pokey scene a weird intra-Sidereal conflict, with Pinkie's influence trying to get the party started...and Octavia's Ending it.

Yeah, that was pretty much how I was viewing it - she's either Bronze Faction or unaligned but with a mission that runs contrary to the Gold Faction agenda.

Oh snap - the "uses a BOW" pun still works, if she ends up with an outfit inspired by that Powerbow-wielding Chosen of Endings, Sad Ivory! Octavia could really make that look work.

Eyup, those are stars, all Sidereals (which is the type of exalt Derpy is here) have those.

As for Octavia I am thinking a Dragonblooded more specifically a dynast, possibly earth with performance favored due to her stoicism, skill and roman sounding name.

Oh man...this would explain her multiple fanon backstories and names! So many Resplendent Destinies!

She could be ancient and powerful - perhaps an expert in Borders of Kaleidoscopic Logic Style! - whose adjustments of Fate seem almost random to her less-experienced fellows.

Also, star-filled derp-eyes FTW.

----------------------------------------------

As for Octavia...hrm. Tough call.

But Wood Aspects do get Performance and Archery, and she has demonstrated great skill with a "Bow"...*rimshot*. :D

Borders of Kaleidoscopic Logic is best style! As I reclal, you can attack languages with it... and thats one of the lesser powers.
