Spitfire Ref Sheet – 11-07-18

Hello MetaVerse fans!

(Were still working on a final name for our ‘verse 😉 )

This weeks reference sheet is Spitfire! As with the PrimeVerse, little is really known about her background, so we had to out our thinking caps on. Moreso will be elbaorated on in her wikipedia entry at a later date! Without further ado heres her bio blurb:


Despite an initial interest in the armed forces of the Canterlot Commonwealth, Spitfire’s athletic prowess and leadership abilities led her to a career in law enforcement in Equestrian City.

Sadly even busting bad guys and writing citations became less thrilling and more boring to Spitfire, despite being remarkably good at her job. It was said that some in the department were feeling she was making them look bad due to the sheer volume of arrests and convictions she was getting compared to them.

As the years rolled on, she was awarded Equestrian City’s Stun Baton of Honor, the highest commendation possible at the time. It was not long after that Spitfire was transferred to the ECSWAT, where she continued her climb in the ranks, rising to the rank of Captain. Wounded several times in the line of duty, she received three Honor Bandage Badges and finally the Commonwealth Badge of Excellence, awarded by the elected Celestial herself at the time.

As the Canterlot Disaster came and went, Captain Spitfire was part of the concentrated effort to calm the ensuing paranoia and civil unrest EC had fallen into. Enlisting the best and brightest, the squad she assembled brought order to chaos and were a vital element during the riots.

As the era of MetaCrime began to rise, Spitfire’s Wonder Squad were the first to try and beat back the new super powered crime wave. After losing many in the line of duty and nearly losing control of several sections of EC led to an new arm of ECPD being formed: J.U.S.T.I.C.E. Its purpose was to take the fight back using both cutting edge technology from private contractors and those endowed with magical powers choosing to serve.

Commissioner Luna chose Spitfire to lead the entire department. It was both a huge honor and a disappointment to the woman who’d been in the face of danger most of her life.

As the city grew and evolved, the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. charter expired and a new power, an armored special forces unit was to replace it. The trials for the new power armor were set to begin after the winner of the contract presented its first prototype: The Wonderbolt Mark 1. Spitfire leapt at the chance to be the test pilot, working hand in hand with Rare Innovations, regardless of how unthrilled Commissioner Luna was at her enthusiasm instead of letting a professional test the suit.

Now in its early stages, the new Wonderbolt Armor Mark 1 is deployed along with regular ground troops as both back up and spearhead positions to Meta Human incidents, class B and above.


And of course Moon Pearls epic reference sheet. We did a bit of reworking on her suit from the original concept. We wanted both a Rocketeer / Cliff Secourt feeling but still enough room for when the final War Machine Wonderbolt Armor is conpleted.

See ya next time. Dont forget to drop ny discord and say hi!

Professor Midnight Ref Sheet 10-25-18

Hello PowerVerse Fans!

We’ve been somewhat busy recently, dealing with the final elements of episode 12 and the layout of episode 13 but Moon got us Professor Midnights reference sheet and boy did it turn out great!

So newcomers to this fan project will no doubt ask who Professor Midnight is. For lack of a better term it’s evil Twilight. Sci Twi. Doppelganger Sparkle. However you want to refer to her as.

What happened? Well since the third movie never happens, logic dictates Sci Twi goes on to Everton and never understands Friendship or by that extension proper compassion. Pop in her brother being the victim of Magic Radiation Sickness and her parents dying in the Canterlot Disaster wave, and she essentially shuts the world out while focusing on understanding magic…at any cost.

Brilliant as our Twilight, she begins to obsess and becomes a high end researcher for the Eastern Empire. Here is the link to her partial wiki entry and for those interested, she also starred in the latest episode of our Anthology series Equestrian City: Side Streets.It takes place just before she accepts the Empires scholarship. Very good I’m told as a character piece to read. I’d recommend it!

That being said here’s the sheet!

Character wise she’s meant to be a tribute to Deathshead from The New Order.

Stay tuned for more updates and drop us a line on discord or here!

Deathstrings Ref Sheet – 10-13-18

Lyra Heartstrings A survivor of the Canterlot Disaster, Lyra wasn’t blessed nor cursed with meta-human powers. Instead she was left scarred by shrapnel on her back, but for the most part untouched. Transplanted by the Refugee program for the surviving students of Canterlot High, Lyra displayed above average academic scores while also excelling in track and field sports. She was top of her class in archery but her sports career ended just as quickly as it started. As the paranoia of anyone associated with the Canterlot Disaster escalated, so did the bigotry and bias against Lyra. Her name was pulled from any possible scholarships and she soon found herself ostracized as much as any of the other survivors. By the time the wave of fear had begun to settle, it was too late for her to salvage anything regarding her marksmanship and she decided to look into a career in food service. Little did she know she caught the eye of AEGIS, namely Director Drops. As her food service career went nowhere fast, Lyra was contacted one night by the organization and, after a small series of training tasks guised as errands, she was accepted. Taking the name Deathstrings, she became a master marksman and worked as an operative for the Equestrian City based wing of the group. Her relationship with Director Drops is described by all as complicated.

Rarity Belle Ref Sheet – 10-04-18

Hey there HeroVerse fans!

Todays release is quite long biography wise, so well be giving the main link to our wikipedia page for her.

A few notes about her, we wanted her to feel like Rarity had a regal almost princess like feel due to her position as the Jacob Marlowe archetype of our group. MOON did a heck of a job maturing miss Belle out that’s for sure.

Rarity has one of the more deeper problem sets of the group, so she required a bit of a delicate hand in today’s day and age of trigger words and images. We opted to keep it lighter then to delve into the main issues as her PTSD, Survivors guilt, alcoholism and bipolar disorder. No doubt all of these are attributed to surviving the Canterlot Disaster, watching her sister die and in the end having to hide her vices.

I took a great deal of research into making sure I didnt make light of any of these issues but also wanted to show she was still very much a lady, very much a powerful woman, but also a very approachable person still. We didn’t want to make her Lex Luthor after all. (That archetype belongs to someone else 😉 )

That being said here’s the link to our slowly growing wikipedia for Rarity!

And here’s moons reference sheet!

Drop by on discord or our fan group on fimfiction. We love hearing from ya.

Scootaloo Ref Sheet – 09-27-18

Being part of the survivors of the Canterlot Disaster, Scootaloo lost her right arm immediately when a magical wave hit her and her group of friends as they stood near the stage. After the strike, the world went black for the purple haired teenager.

The next she knew she was waking up in the hospital inside Equestrian City. Trying to move she winced and looked down to see the apparent injuries caused by the exposure to the blast wave. It didn’t take long before Scootaloo began to complain of a constant whistling in her ears that became unbearable after prolonged consciousness. The only way she found to cope with it was to be sedated, which the medical professionals began to worry would lead to serious complications.

Jumping from specialist to specialist, she became lost in the health care system, a system that was already trying to deal with regular casualties and injuries on top of all the new magical ones. Finally Scootaloo was told there was no cure and to simply learn to adjust.

Left with desperation due to any hope of silence appeared gone, she received word there was a scientist experimenting on magical injuries. There was only one catch, it was outside of the country in the Eastern Empire. A brief moment of whistling was all that it took for her to go and get on the next boat to Sombra’s lands.

Once there, she was escorted through processing and countless hoops to jump through to apply for citizenship. Scootaloo was passed from one scientist to another, each one giving their approvel that she was indeed beyond their abilities, sending her further and further up the testing line. Just when she began to lose hope, she became the next experiment of Professor Midnight, formally known as Twilight Sparkle.

Little care for her safety was given but Scootaloo was willing to take all the punishment needed to make the wind stop in her ears, filling her head endlessly. She gave herself fully to Midnight’s experiments and after several weeks of endless prodding and poking, slicing and grafting, she awoke one day to golden silence. The genius that was Professor Midnight had cured her and, better still, had harnessed the magic inside her to power a prosthetic arm.

Having not expected her to survive, Midnight was amused and continued to tinker with her latest toy. Finally fitting Scootaloo with earpieces and routing the wind through the mechanical arm, Scootaloo became fiercely loyal out of gratitude and assumed the role of assistant and bodyguard. Now she protects Professor Midnight from any would-be threats or lunch, whichever she requires.

Inspired by several elements the most obvious people tell me is the winter solider. So I told Moon to go for the references this time. Turned out pretty good I think 😉

Discord server for fans and fans of MLP alike open. By all means contact me Twitter or wubcake for an invite n.n

Until next time!

Aria Blaze Ref Sheet 09-23-18

today we give you an eagerly requested character: Malcontents right hand gal and enforcer, Aria! Moon Pearl took the existing costume and…made it more sensual which turned out great!


Aria Blaze had always been eager to prove herself to be better than her 2 sisters. One of them was never a problem. This was Sonata whose IQ seemed to equal to that of her shoe size. The other one however was a problem. She was superior to her in every possible way and would never let her forget it. Be it in singing, devising plans or just flat out insulting people, Adagio had always been leaps ahead of her. It was no secret Aria hated every bit of it deep inside with the 2 tolerating each other simply as a means to an end. There actually was some level of sisterly affection but it wasn’t what someone would call love.

Constantly the brunt of Adagio’s, the lead siren, physical and verbal assaults, Aria bided her time carefully until the day would come when she could have the upper hand. She looked forward to when that moment would finally arrive and allow her to strike.

One day that moment finally came. Their great leader’s plan had gone south and the so-called Rainbooms magic was manifesting out of control. Sadly for the bystanders this lead to massive magical shockwaves that would change the world forever. During the chaos, Adagio and Sonata were in shock and Aria struck. She snatched their magical gems from their necks and shoved them into an oncoming wave of magic.

The pair’s shrill screams of pain echoed loudly as Aria made her way to escape. Soon the cries became silent with their bodies disintegrating. Overly confident, Aria had turned to see this and bask in her triumph and gaining of freedom. This was an error on her part as it barely lasted a few seconds before her eyes saw the wave was now heading for her. Throwing her arms up she tried to repel it. Crying out in pain she, she screeched she didn’t want to die.

As if by a miracle sent by the heavens above, fortune decided to shine upon her or kick her in the teeth depending on who’s asked. It seemed to be divine intervention given the perfect timing for her savior to appear. He offered a hand, “I can help you out and give you superior powers but in exchange…you have to do a few favors for me here and there. Do we have a deal?” The last siren barely hesitated before reaching out a scared arm and taking hold of the man’s hand, confirming the deal and sealing her fate with that handshake.

It’s still a mystery what exactly happened next but it is sufficient to say that the power Malcontent had promised was delivered, be it with a few sacrifices. The stolen gems had fused with her own to make one large red stone which was embedded directly into her chest. It is held in place by ugly fleshy tendrils that are at war with each other since some wish to eagerly absorb the power into her body, as others wish to push the piece of stone out.

The scars of her decision on that fateful date remain. They are not limited to only physical wounds on her arms, caused by exploding glass from a window, and chest, courtesy of Malcontent, but were equally as much on her psyche. Aria had tried to cover up the unpleasant sights on her arms and chest but allows them to be seen, following the insisting from her partner and savior she bare them openly as tribute to him.
