The second of these characters I was asked to doodle up. I like the design, but I feel he was suppose to come out looking much stronger and beefier. Plus I kinda wanna change the hair design and maybe give him a beard.
Taitus once worked as a royal guard for Equestria and seemed to life a fairly typical life. Despite his main work was in the Castle, he spent a good portion of his time with his family who owned an icecream parlor (hence the last name Neapol, which is a play on words for Neapolitan Icecream and his color scheme). For much of his life nothing much ever seemed out of the ordinary, with the acceptation of the attacks on the kingdom from opposing enemies.
However one day seemingly out of nowhere, Taitus and his family seemed to disappear from the town entirely, leaving no trace to be followed. As if they vanished from thin air the Neapol's would never be heard from again.
That was accept until the mysterious stallion came to the valley in a strange suit of armor. By the name Core, the dark knight searched the lands for powerful opponents to battle, for seemingly no real reason outside to feel the flames of battle. Underneath the mask was the father of the Neapol's, Taitus. A much quieter and distant man, he speaks little of the past, and those who do know him have never heard of why he and his family vanished.
The orgin of his armor is relatively unknown as well. The armor seems to give the stallion powers or earth and flame, seemingly increases his strength ten fold, is extremely durable, and has an odd aura that negates magic from effecting it, turning the pony behind the suit until a ruthless opponent.
(This one ends on a bit of a mysterious note, cause im still working shit out yo)
Personality: Taitus use to be a very fun loving man, caring and nobel, just as any good Royal guard would be. Behind the new persona of Core however, he is a silent and somewhat cold warrior, seemingly only seeking the fires of battle.
He is often feared as a major threat though he doesnt react much with those who are not capable of fighting.
