Through the course of being in the Brony fandom, I’ve noticed that many people like to make their own species of pony not canon to the show. I am one of said people as I’ve made quite an interesting species known as a celestial being.
Originally, my concept of celestial beings was a collection of MLP characters that had a view of space inside them. Their eyes were the only thing with color beyond space and even those had stars in them. All of them had immense power and were mysterious beings. Only a few of them existed, and only one had been seen.
In the second concept of celestial beings, I was a lot more detailed with them. I created two separate types of celestial beings. Legendary types are essentially the original concept for celestial beings. They’re immensely powerful and know more than most ponies. Common types are the other type of celestial being. They’re like normal ponies aside from the looks. They’re also more powerful depending on their race(Earth, unicorn, pegasus, alicorn)
Celestial beings all must hibernate to maintain their magic which provides their extra strengths. There are 2 types of hibernation for them: Light and heavy. In light hibernation, a celestial being becomes a galaxy. This form can toggle within hours. In heavy hibernation, due to the being needing more energy to maintain the larger size of a galaxy, the celestial being becomes a nebula. This takes days to get in and out of as they also have to pass through the light stage.
Common type celestial beings have different strengths depending on what type of pony they are in the RP series.
Earth ponies are physically stronger and faster.
Unicorns have much more powerful magic.
Pegasi have the strongest wings.
Alicorns are actually physically the weakest of the common types, but they have a natural perception magic that makes them extremely intelligent.
Legendary types are all alicorns and have the perks of all the types of common types combined.
I was looking at the legendary types and realized that they are fairly overpowered and it would be simple for one with poor intentions to take out whole planets in a single sweep, so I did put some limitations on them. Legendary type celestial beings cannot kill anything aside from other legendary type celestial beings directly, or else they would die as well. This also goes for directly hurting them. However, legendary types can kill them indirectly. Let’s say two legendary types are having a battle and some of the lethal magic splash kills other ponies. The celestial beings wouldn’t die. Or if a legendary type celestial being was somehow thrown and fell on top of anther pony, killing them(because usually, legendary types are far larger than other ponies, but still proportionate, though) they would be fine. If another pony were to start attacking them, they could use a counter shield to return the attacks automatically and their opponent would essentially be killing themselves.
Any celestial being that has ill intentions can easily be caught as evil celestial beings have black holes inside them. These black holes disappear when the celestial being leaves ill intentions behind.
Most legendary types cannot be killed like normal ponies. They can be hurt through those means if they don’t expect it, but not killed. One can, however, kill a legendary type by tricking them into directly hurting a pony who isn’t another legendary type.
Celestial beings, both legendary and common types, can be used as vessels for magic amplification if they consent. Legendary types can use other legendary types as vessels, but if they directly kill other ponies with it, both will die. But a normal pony or common type can directly kill ponies when using a legendary type as a vessel.
Legendary types can teleport immense distances, but the further the distance, the more tax on their magic stamina it takes. If there are magical locks or other forms of interference, they will also have to get past that.
Some celestial beings have a layer of stars above their skin visible to the naked eye. This usually shows that their magic stamina is very full. Some also have rings of stars around their bodies. These can show age, but they’re usually there because they’ve reached a point of magic power that gives them the ring. Celestial beings can create armor out of stars on themselves. Each piece takes a day to create and each piece is good for about three good hits from anything.
Now you know everything there is to know about celestial beings. They make for very interesting characters and they come out really cool when drawn.
