A brief disclaimer: I'm not a big fan of using images straight from pony creator. I think it's a good tool to help visualize the oc one is trying to make, but it should never be the final product. That being said, I'm a slow drawer and I have this thing about having a visual to go with profiles, so they'll have to do until I get around to actually drawing these ponies' portraits. Now, enough of that, here is an entire night's sudden burst of inspiration.

Ashen Grove

Species: Vampire
Gender: Male
Age: ~687
Likes: Painting, socializing, hosting formal events, cleanliness, experimenting with magical spells
Dislikes: Unorganized messes, lack of manners, dirt
Special Talent: silver-tongue/hypnotic suggestion
Description: Light evergreen coat; dark forest green mane with paler highlights; dark purple eyes; wears immaculate formal attire
Job: Invests in the stock market
Home: Owns a mansion located on semi-arid coast of Saddle Arabia
Bio: The eldest of three brothers, Ashen Grove is a proud, learned stallion. He spent a majority of his youth traveling with his brothers, often times getting them into trouble with some questionable decisions. That being said, he does care about their well-being, even if his overbearing personality can be hard to handle.
   After their travels, he returned to the family home within the Everfree where he was subsequently groomed by his parents as the next head of the family. He then moved to saddle Arabia where he married into one of the most prominent clans. As with other members of his clan, he has a wide range of magical abilities and is fine in direct sunlight.

Misty Moors

Species: Vampire
Gender: Male
Age: ~687
Likes: Quiet, astronomy, gardening, sketching
Dislikes: Getting dragged around by his older brother, large cities, loud noises
Special Talent: can summon and control banshees
Description: Nightshade purple coat; dark purple mane with pale highlights; lime green eyes; dark brown open vest over a white shirt with matching golfer's cap
Job: Game warden
Home: Owns a small cottage in the country of the Equestrian equivalent of Scotland
Bio: The middle brother and most unassuming of the trio, Misty Moors is nevertheless as intelligent as his other family members. Often getting dragged into situations by his elder brother, and subsequently rescued by his younger brother, he developed an intense dislike of being near other ponies. While he does enjoy living away from Ashen Grove, he will come to his aid should the need arise.
   Rather than returning home, he chose to stay where his current home is, even falling in love with and marrying one of the local mares. Unlike Silent Shade however, who refused to turn his beloved into a creature of the night, he turned her into a pure blooded vampire and has since lived happily with her and their children.

Violet Valerian

Species: Elder vampire
Gender: Female
Age: ~1,500
Likes: Writing, playing the piano, walking through the forest
Dislikes: Vampire hunters, physical contact from those she perceives as lesser creatures, dissonant sounds
Special Talent: Voice of the siren
Description: Nightshade purple coat; dark purple mane with pale highlights; emerald green eyes; bat-like wings; wears a golden pendant with what appears to be a closed eye engraved into it; prefers Victorian style dresses
Job: Matriarch
Home: the ancestral home deep within the Everfree; has a glamour on it to make it appear rundown
Bio: A direct descendent of the Founder, she is one of the few vampires in the world capable of creating pure-blooded vampires from her blood alone. Proud, vain, and supremely confident in her skills, Violet thinks nothing more of other species as food or a means to an end. Born well before the founding of Equestria, during the time of the three tribes, she has seen much over her long life and fears little other than creatures as old as herself.
   Though she married Deadwood for the purity of his blood, she has developed somewhat of a fondness for him over the long years and takes extreme pride in her progeny, even her half-breed granddaughter, who has more than proven she is worthy of being a full-fledged member of the clan.

Deadwood Shadow

Species: Elder Vampire
Gender: Male
Age: ~1,700
Likes: Reading, bird watching, scaring unwary travelers, anatomy and physiology
Dislikes: The smell of garlic, small insects, feral vampires, ponies who have an overblown ego, parties
Special Talent: Druidic magic
Description: dark evergreen coat; even darker mane; dark purple eyes; wears a pendant similar to his wife's; prefers Victorian style suits
Job: Patriarch
Home: the ancestral home deep within the Everfree; has a glamour on it to make it appear rundown
Bio: Proud, stern, and emotionally distant, Deadwood has little time or patience for the carefree attitudes of Equestrian ponies. Spending a majority of his time studying the anatomies of the different magical creatures found throughout the world, he spends little time with his family. When he does, his interactions with them feel like those of a stranger saying hello.
   A powerful magician, he uses his magic to confuse travelers that wander into his wood. Though he usually lets them free, on occasion he'll capture them for an experiment, promptly draining them of their blood once he's finished.

Sandy Shores & Dusty Dunes

Species: Vampires
Gender: Female(SS) & male(DD)
Age: ~165
Likes: Dancing, playing the lute, singing, performing at inns and bazaars
Dislikes: The clan dynamic, sunlight, staying in one place for too long
Special Talent: (SS) Voice of the siren; (DD) creating sand storms
Description: light brown coat; dark brown diamond on the forehead and around the muzzle; dark brown mane with pale green highlights; dark purple eyes; bat'like wings (DD)
Job: Performers
Home: The open road
Bio: The twin children of Ashen Grove, Sandy and Dusty have been partners in crime since they were foals. Tired of the pressure put on them by their father and grandmother, they left home at an early age to pursue their real passion. Preferring to travel at night, they use their talents to lure ponies to their campsite. Once lured, the pair will lull the hapless ponies into a trance, making it easy for them to feed.
   While there is no love lost between them and their grandparents, they enjoy the company of their cousins, who they make a habit of visiting on a regular basis. In particular, they enjoy traveling to Equestria to visit their elder cousin Nightstalker if only because the ponies there are easy to prey upon.

Magenta Vineyard

Species: Vampire
Gender: Female
Age: ~230
Likes: Wine, painting, writing, carpentry
Dislikes: Lazy workers, unusual weather patterns, plant viruses, rodents
Special Talent: Silver tongue
Description: Magenta coat; dark magenta mane with pale lavender highlights; lime green eyes; wears a brown beret with matching vest and white undershirt
Job: owns a vineyard/winery
Home: Lives on a small vineyard in the Equestrian equivalent of Sicily
Bio: Eldest of all the grandchildren, Magenta has a cheerful personality uncharacteristic of her other family members. Taking a trip once with her father, she became fascinated with the wine making process. Convincing the owner of a local winery to teach her the process, she remained behind as an apprentice for several years. Once she mastered the craft, she brought the family she'd stayed with under her control, had them leave everything to her, then sent them to her grandfather, who was more than happy to use them.
   Established as an unseen member of the community, she and her "descendants" are praised for their generosity and kindness for those that work for them. Of course those that know what she really is are aware that it's all an elaborate façade for a steady supply of food.

Rusty Spade

Species: Vampire
Gender: Male
Age: ~80
Likes: Geocaching, operating his ham radio, scavenging junkyards, tinkering with old electronics
Dislikes: idle hooves, the smell of old libraries, modern art
Special Talent: Druidic chant
Description: Oxidized iron coat; darker mane with pale lavender highlights; sky blue eyes; wears a dark brown saddle bag that's filled with tools and spare parts
Job: n/a
Home: Lives with his father, Misty Moors
Bio: Middle child of the middle child, Rusty developed a love of technology when he found his ham radio in the local junkyard. Buying a book on the operation and history of radios, he repaired it and began using it to talk with ponies from across the country. Not satisfied with just that, he continues to build new gadgets and gizmos, and hopes to one day study robotics at the Equestrian University.
   Despite this however, he maintains a love and appreciation of nature, and will actively thwart new construction projects by causing trees and bushes to grow overnight at various lots. If the workers continue to persist, he drains the blood from a majority of them and disposes of the bodies in giant Venus fly traps he grows along with the trees. He firmly believes that one day he will discover a way to seamlessly blend technology and nature.

Twinkling Dusk

Species: Vampire
Gender: Female
Age: 24
Likes: Grave rubbings, experimenting with her magic, scaring unwitting ponies, reading old magic tomes
Dislikes: the smell of formaldehyde, holy idols, exorcists, prying eyes
Special Talent: Necromancy
Description: Nightshade purple coat; dark magenta mane; blue headband; sky blue eyes; wears a saddle bag filled with herbs, a diary, and a medical suturing kit
Job: n/a
Home: Lives with her father, Misty Moors
Bio: Curious, intelligent, and inspired by classics such as Frankenstein, Dusk is terrifying, even by Vampire standards. Often found lurking in graveyards, particularly near fresh graves, she is always on the lookout for new parts that she can salvage for her experiments. Surprisingly adept at medical suturing, ancient embalming techniques, and an expert in pony anatomy, her creations tend not to last more than a few ours, though each successive creature lasts longer than the last.
   She makes use of her young appearance to get the drop on her chosen prey; if she thinks they are in reasonable enough condition, she'll take the body and use it as part of her current/next experiment. Recently, she's been asking her father to allow her to move in with her elder cousin Nightstalker. Her reason being that the proximity to so many ponies will make it easier for her to gather ingredients without drawing too much attention.

Galactic Void (aka The Founder)

Species: Ancient Elder Vampire
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown
Likes: Unknown
Dislikes: Unknown
Special Talent: Unknown
Description: Dark navy blue coat; darker mane; lime green eyes; bat-like wings
Job: Unknown
Home: Unknown
Bio: A figure from the ancient past, none remain who knew him, and few remain who know of him. Named the Founder by some clans, it's said that he is the origin of all vampiric bloodlines, though only one lays claim to being a direct descent of his one and only progeny. As much as he is revered by the clans, none of them know what became of him. Whether he still lives in a secluded corner of the world, or whether he was eventually slain by some vampire hunter, none can say for sure. One theory does persist however, that at the height of his power he found a way transform into pure ethereal energy, and merged with the living darkness that creeps throughout the world.

Candy Clouds

Species: Pegasus
Gender: Female
Age: Deceased
Likes: The smell of baked cookies, knitting, sunny days
Dislikes: Beetles, winter nights, the price of sugar
Special Talent: making sugar confections
Description: Light brown coat; cotton candy pink mane with lighter highlights; crimson eyes
Job: Worked at a candy shop
Home: A village on the edge of the Everfree that's long since disappeared
Bio: A kindly mare, she was well liked by her village for her generosity. While she didn't approve of her daughter's lover, she nonetheless loved her granddaughter and looked after her with her husband after their daughter died. She'd soon come to regret this decision as not more than two days later, she was found dead in her candy shop, her granddaughter missing.


Species: Pegasus
Gender: Male
Age: Deceased
Likes: The Ocean, flying, roasted carrots, rainclouds
Dislikes: Silent Shade, vampires, cloudy nights, the sound of metal scraping on metal
Special Talent: Weather manipulation
Description: Grey-blue coat; darker mane with orange streak; orange eyes
Job: Weather pony
Home: A village on the edge of the Everfree that's long since disappeared
Bio: An excellent flyer, Waterspout dearly loved his wife, daughter, and granddaughter. He'd always been suspicious of Silent Shade, and when he discovered his wife dead and grandchild missing, he vowed a cold revenge upon the stallion. Learning all he could about vampires, he became one of the deadliest vampire hunters the world had ever seen. The only thing that stopped him was an encounter with his granddaughter several decades after she'd gone missing. Blinded by his joy, it didn't even register that she had hardly changed since that day. She was the last thing he ever saw.

Glacial Stream

Species: Pegasus
Gender: Female
Age: Deceased
Likes: Alchemy, winter mornings, puzzles, snowberries
Dislikes: Warm climates, tomatoes, nosy ponies, her spring allergies
Special Talent: Alchemy
Description: Ice blue coat; darker mane with paler highlights; crimson eyes
Job: Healer
Home: A village on the edge of the Everfree that's long since disappeared
Bio: Somewhat of an odd mare, she spent just as much time brewing poisons as she did curatives. Odder still was when she started dating the mysterious stallion who showed up in town one day. When she had her child, she took great care in allowing very few ponies to interact with her, and spent an inordinate amount of time taking her into the Everfree. When she became sick, she shut herself up in her cottage with her daughter, dying a week later.

Cherry-blossom (Ouka「桜花」)

Species: Vampire
Gender: Female
Age: ~433
Likes: Poetry, spring, mountain springs, calligraphy, ink painting

Special Talent: The art of living drawings
Description: Pale pink coat; vibrant pink mane and tail with white-pink streaks; bright orange eyes; likes to wear kimonos and has one for every occassion
Job: Artist
Home: Lives with Silent Shade
Bio: Born and raised in the far east, Cherry-blossom charms all with her graceful actions and soft-spoken words. Her kind demeanor however belies a cunning and manipulative personality. Always one to take advantage of a situation, piece of gossip, or emotional weakness, she takes joy in weaving webs and watching the light drain from the eyes of those she ensnares. Despite this, she genuinely cares for her son and husband and is willing to do anything to see them succeed.
