Been making pony stuff recently. Except not as ponies. Anywho.My Little Mercenaries - Nightmare
- In Equestria, the land is ruled by peace and harmony. Not so in Ectheria, a queendom beset by danger and strife. A new menace looms in this troubled land, a being that calls itself Nightmare. Queen Celestia entrusts her faithful student Twilight Battlemage and - much to Twilight's chagrin - a group of unusual mercenaries to investigate this threat. Will Twilight be able to manage the quirks and antics of her new little squadron and whip them into fighting shape before they confront the full force of their foe? Or will they fall, and in doing so take Ectheria's hopes for harmony with them?Name:
Student and Special Agent attached to Queen Celestia
I don't know if I'm ever going to actually write a My Little Mercenaries
story with Derpy in it, but if I did, this would probably be what she'd look like.Name:
Deryn "Derpy" HuffAge:
Mercenary specializing in mass damage, various odd jobs on the sidePrimary Weapon:
The Muffin Cannon, a personal rail accelerator that has been modified to fire 5oz muffin loads at supersonic speeds. The aiming and external firing mechanisms have been removed and replaced, their functions being handled remotely by Derpy's ever-moving cybermagic eye. Derpy uses muffins for ammunition because she finds it both hilarious and delicious.General Info:
Always thought to be stupid or handicapped due to her unusual eyes and clumsy nature, Deryn Huff decided to take full control of her life from the bullies. She willingly adopted the nickname "Derpy" for herself, took on work as a mercenary, and used the proceeds from her first few successful jobs to replace one of her eyes and most of her nervous system with cybermagic implants.
Though she has purposefully set her eye to wander randomly (partly as a symbolic gesture to her previous wall-eye and partly as a practical measure to confound and confuse her opponents), in truth it gives her perfect and even enhanced vision. This combined with the nearly supernatural steadiness provided by her altered nervous system makes her a deadly foe in most situations.
Derpy takes to her latest job with not just a sense of professional pride but of personal satisfaction. Hired out to send a certain humanoid a "message" in the form of a high velocity muffin to the torso, she looks forward to reuniting with the woman who caused her the most grief before her transformation . . . fellow mercenary and angel Dash.
But Dash has other concerns. Her teammate AJ has disappeared after going to an Iron Humanoid competition that turns out to be completely fictitious. Will Dash be able to find her friend and ditch the insane angel trying to clip her feathers at the same time?
Or will Derpy finally get the last laugh?
