Pony Varient - Antean

Postby David » Wed Sep 25, 2013 2:42 pm

Antean Pony:
While all ponies share the brand of destiny, which guides them towards their greater purpose, only a select few have such potent destinies. Like the chaos hunters, anteans are blessed, or cursed, with an overwhelming fate. Unlike the hunters, the nature of an antean is near impossible to hide, as they are large, towering over their fellow ponies ranging from 14 to 16 feet in length. Such ponies are compelled to protect their smaller kin, but their stature makes staying in small pony towns a challenge, driving many off to watch from a distance.
Their size has given rise to wild tales of rampaging giant ponies that can demolish settlements on an angry whim, and enjoy the taste of innocent ponies. However, they are individuals, capable of good or evil at their own decision and upbringing. Most are gentle giants, who wish to use their stature and might for the greater good of the society, even if only because they enjoy using their great body and displaying their abilities.
It is said there is a full and proper city of these giants, but its location is as hidden as its name. Those few anteans that speak of it make reference to their queen, whom no normal sized pony has ever seen, and clan leaders for clans no one has heard from. Some claim that the anteans may be making up a story to feel more involved than they really are, as awkward giants in a small world.
Antean ponies were most common before the empire. Though the Queen had nothing ill to say about her oversized subjects, they simply dwindled in number without explanation. Perhaps the vital power that fueled their girth was waning, or it is simply not the right time for these great ponies. Only time will tell if the anteans will make a resurgence.
