I've wanted a horse character in KICS for years, but I could never draw them. Then I found *Holivi
's gallery and the way she draws the MLP characters on their back legs just makes me love her style more. So she inspired me to finally design a horse character.
And it's not a boy, woot! Too many male characters, lol!
Her name is Lady Anabeth, daughter of the ruler of the Plains region on Marya (haven't named it yet -u-) She does most of the dealings between the High King and her aging father, due to too many battle wounds he's had to his legs.
The plains are populated by Equidae and Cervidae animals, meaning anything from the families of Horses and Deer. Because of their strong legs they can run great distances within mere minutes and can also dash through forests if needed. They are also skilled archers. Along with the Bats of Marya, they form most of the population of the Royal Army.
Spike makes sure to visit the plains often because he can sense the energetic spirit in the young Mare, which is something he enjoys when she speaks enthusiastically about her land and battle strategies she thought on her own. Women in her country, while they do have the right to vote and whatnot, are not encouraged to join the army because they are known as the Life Givers, meaning they give birth to new foals who may one day become great warriors. However, if the High King himself recognizes the spirit of loyalty and bravery in a Mare, he will granted her freedom of choosing between a life of an everyday woman and a pledge to serve the Royal Army.
So yes, Anabeth is younger than Spike... horses are just taller than porcupines XD
Spike's uniform is a lot more specific, but I'm too tired to add details XD
