Name: Midnight Brass
Breed: Unicorn (Part Changeling)
Brief Personality: An inventor and tinker by nature, Midnight is the daughter of a Unicorn and a Changeling; her father having been in disguise when she was conceived. She grew up in the far away Clockwork City, where she learned the skills of a master artisan but never escaped the stigma of her heritage. When her mother died she constructed a pair of clockwork wings, gathered her tools, and set out for Equestria hoping a place renowned for peace and happiness would give her a chance at acceptance.
Like her father, Midnight has the ability to shapechange - although doing so comes at a cost to those who love her target, and is therefore something she has so far refused to do. In her natural form, Midnight can subsist on the love directed at herself without harm - but presently, with her family dead and new in town, she is sorely lacking.
With her history as a despised outsider, Midnight is often quick to take sympathy with anypony who is the victim of bullying or bigotry - sometimes even to the point of becoming the vicious somepony others assume her to be.
Due to her mixed heritage, Midnight currently lacks a cutie mark and has assumed herself unable to gain one.
