Nightly and his cutie mark by aNIGHTLYpony Nightly and his cutie mark by aNIGHTLYpony
Update 23/6/2014: Re-worked to my own style and and the definitive design. 

He's my 1st OC. Officially named Nocturne Medley he is commonly known as Nightly. He is a nocturnal unicorn and also one of equestria's guardians, His special talent is music, that he writes and plays. 

Bio: Long, long ago Nightly was born by a pact with the moon. he is a creature that only ages at night and is nocturnal. Born to a poor middle class family in canterlot, Nightly grew up there and had always been fascinated by music the moment he could hear. This eventually gained him his mark of destiny when he started playing his signature instrument: the lute. Nightly grew up in a difficult time and by the time he was 17 he had to take refuge to hollow shades. There he enlisted in an army of rebels to fight against the changeling swarm. having played a Crucial role in winning the war by his intuition and brave deeds he was appointed one of the Secret Guardian of equestria by princess Celestia to protect equestria from upcoming threats out of sight from the general public.

After the war Nightly had more time to fully develop his musical and fencing skills and has found a way to cast powerful magic by playing his lute. Hardly encountered, since he travels a lot but he is often found playing in taverns. He's always heading towards new adventures.

Appearence: Slim, scruffy, pretty tall and very,very agile. he has a greyish blue coat,light blue eyes and a white long mane with dark blue accents. he has a long tail. he has a few scars here and there and white hooves. He looks pretty young while he's actually much older. unlike regular unicorns Nightly has fangs.

Personality : Calm, Friendly,wise, Loner, thinker,Jolly,brave . but also stubborn,impatient  and can get lost in thoughts. He can also be selfish at times and he doesn't trust easily,he often hides his true emotions and is not someone who is easy befriended, but for his friends he goes through fire and flames.

Likes: music, reading, traveling, stargazing, Red wine, fancy food, tobacco, fencing,
Dislikes: daylight, liars, changelings, potatoes, being in one place for too long. Arrogance

I'm wondering, would you mind if I used Nightly as an NPC in an RP Forum of mine? (My character was a traveller, but has not settled down with a husband, and has gotten a small child). I like how Nightly looks, and by his appearance, looks like the kinda guy that Liya (My character) would like...

So... Mind if I use him? ^^

aNIGHTLYpony Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013  Student General Artist
to be completely honest i actually wouldn't like to see him in it if that's ok, theres another artist i already let use Nightly (a comicbook) so i dont want TOO many other people use him.I also think he wouldn't fit in cause actually i'm busy writing a fan-fic myself XD
Reply
:iconkapuchu1:
Kapuchu1 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013
Hmm ok. All I would actually use was name and appearance :P Not as one I control or anything xD (Just needed to mention him xP)

I'll try and see if I can come up with something myself.

Hello~ I know this is a bit random, but I'm looking for interesting OCs who would want a part in this comic stores I'm working on. Is there any chance you'd be interested, or even show up in the background randomly?

aNIGHTLYpony Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Student General Artist
hey that'd be awesome! i feel honored you picked my OC to be suggested for this comic you are making, i am interested for sure! keep me Updated ^.0

Note: IF you are willing to use him you must refer him to be mine. (Nightly belongs to yadda yadda, you know about it i think XD). slight modifications are no problemo ^.0

That I will and can do! And no worries, I'm giving all the credit where credit is due, I wouldn't claim any OCs that aren't mine :D

Would you mind if he were a teacher of some kind? Maybe music? OR would you like him to live in the castle with the royal family? :)

:iconanightlypony:
aNIGHTLYpony Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Student General Artist
hmm, i'd rather portray him as stranger that pops up with good ideas offering help when least expected. a music teacher or street musician is also a good idea. living in the castle with the royals is kinda unlikely because nightly wanders all the time,not liking to stick around for too long.
