Lektra Bolt G4


Lektra Bolt

  • Age: 16 (Or equivalent age of the Mane Cast, at GMs interpretation)

    Gender: Female

    Species: Unicorn

    Appearance: <p> Lektra has a light orange coat with a yellow mane and tail. It looks like the primary color of the mane and tail are the same color as her coat but looking closely it's possible to tell that the coat is just a brighter orange. Most ponies can't tell the difference, though. There is a streak of gray in her tail and mane. It looks like she got stuck permanently looking like when something gets hit by lighting. So it's all yellow zigzag and gray mixed in. Looks like residual lighting. With her magic affinity being to lightning and electricity, her mane and tail are permanently standing up in zigzagging lightning spikes and grow like that. The front of her mane hangs down in wispy zigzag shaped lightning bangs to just above the eyes and waves when she walks or runs. Speaking of eyes, Lektra's eyes are a light brown color. All four of her legs have gray lightning bolt patterns as part of the way the hair grows. </p>

    Cutie Mark: <p> Lektra has a cube shaped brown metallic box with lightning bolts coming out of it like from the Sun as a Mark, with bigger bolts coming out of the top. The pointy ends are pointing at the cube like they're about to hit it. The cube is opened at the top like you'd open a packing box. On the sides of the cube are Caution symbols with a rainbow at the open end of the box. It signifies her thinking outside the box and her electric affinity. </p> <p> <img alt="5a02a3fac27e2_LektraCM.png.781008909fa70b4711951d165221742a.png" class="ipsImage ipsImage_thumbnailed" data-fileid="232762" src="<fileStore.core_Attachment>/monthly_2017_11/5a02a3fac27e2_LektraCM.png.781008909fa70b4711951d165221742a.png" /></p>

    Personality: <p> Lektra can be absorbed in her inventing for hours or sometimes days on end. She takes the time to make sure everything in the blueprint would work when actually built, so if she's not building something you can often find her in her workshop just sitting at a desk and scribbling furiously to make sure the underlying math is correct. Her thought process is methodical and careful, but when short on time she is prone to coming up with multiple solutions at once and just going by trial and error on which works. Due to being an inventor and an introvert, she often enjoys the company of non-living machines more than living entities.<br /><br /> She is friendly/nice to others, but can turn volatile when insulted. She's social when around others, but can also be more than a bit reclusive and prefers indoor activities. This also means she has trouble initially meeting others, due to being absorbed in her work. Lektra dislikes the outdoors, and will only venture outside when there's a reason to do so. Otherwise, she's quite the homebody and prefers her lab and her home over a bunch of trees and rocks.<br /><br /> Lektra is what some might call a mare of simple tastes. She has no interest in jewels, fancy clothes, or other finery that she considers frivolous, nor does she care to match the manners of high society ponies who do tend to like these things. She is an organized pony, but you wouldn't really know it. Her workshop below the hut is seemingly a mess of blueprints, unfinished inventions, finished but rejected inventions, failed inventions that blew up/melted, or just parts lying around. Regardless, she likes what's referred to as a 'clean mess' where she knows where everything is but it looks messy. A real mess where everything is thrown about wouldn't be something she enjoys, especially if it has a bad odor.<br /><br /> She enjoys helping others, and is proportionately upset when finding out somepony else was upset by her actions. Key word: Finding out. This means that if you're hiding your feelings, don't expect any sympathy. She's not a great judge of character, but can be encouraging and positive. Lektra has very strong opinions and generally regards them as facts, so she tends to have a comment on anything she overhears and feels compelled to comment on.<br /><br /> Lektra values the friends she has, although there aren't that many. She's prone to being called a crackpot for her ideas. The ones she does have she would basically do anything to keep, including forgiving them for seemingly ridiculous or severely hurtful actions. She is very forgiving and can justify lots of things happening, so it takes a lot to anger her. Typically if you do something she doesn't like she'll just tell you to not do it again, except if you won't stop. In which case she will do her best to ignore you or invent something to make you stop. An invention of this type would likely be dangerous, so it's best not to annoy her to this point.<br /><br /> She doesn't like those in authority roles, and generally doesn't like being given orders or commands. She is prone to unrehearsed sarcasm. She is also prone to complaining or otherwise looking for somepony to vent/rant to on topics of interest or whatever is being discussed at the moment. </p>

    Backstory: <p> Lektra was born in Manehattan to parents who were prominent technology designers and inventors by extension. Her father was named (Booming) Thunder and her mother was named Lightning. Rather famous in the city, actually. Her parents helped to maintain the industrial and technologically advanced city island. When they had their first foal they decided to settle down and let new ponies take over the job, but still mostly kept their company, Bolt Solutions, in the family. The company was restructured with them as owners and consultants, but they were less involved in the day to day minutia. They have since had two more children: Fraternal twins Speed Bolt (F) and Flash Bolt (M).<br /><br /> While out in a storm one day she was literally struck by lightning but miraculously survived. Perhaps it was because of living around machines for so long, or perhaps she was just lucky. Having had a history of lightning based inventors in the family, she had been thinking about following her parents hoofsteps for a while. Now having been struck by lightning, she finally realized that she was connected to them, and that she wanted to be an inventor as well. Her own magical specialty was realized, and her cutie mark showed itself.<br /><br /> She was homeschooled through written correspondence, and turned out to be smart enough to acquire a degree in Experimental Engineering by the time she was no longer a filly. After finishing schooling Lektra left home to travel the world and look for a place to quietly invent and patent her ideas. She was seeking her own little fortress of solitude.<br /><br /> Lektra was without a permanent residence for a long time, moving from city to town to city to city to town to another town every so often. She never stayed in the same place for very long, wanting to see as much of the world as possible after being homeschooled all her life and not stepping outside the city. She just felt like it was time to see what the world was like outside the city, but was also searching out masters in her field to learn from. There had to be others out there who could teach her things that couldn't be taught in school.<br /><br /> She met many interesting ponies in her travels, but none as influential as this old codger she met while out shopping for useful parts to use for an order. The old stallion had been a resident of Ponyville who decided to move. She questioned him as to why, learning that Ponyville was apparently some kind of center of all weirdness. All the goings on there were taking a toll on his heart and he couldn't take it. His doctor told him he had to move away. Thanking him for his stories, Lektra continued in her travels for a little while longer. During this time she took out patents for the things she invented while traveling, and was able to live off the royalties when the mailponies could find her.<br /><br /> She did eventually end up making the move to Ponyville, but had a rather strange aversion to doing actual work. See, although Lektra works hard designing and building her inventions, she doesn't do much else. Her inventions are usually designed to do things for ponies, and can promote laziness, although she doesn't condone this. She prefers to construct an automatic broom to do the cleaning rather than clean up after herself, make a heater by enchanting a block of metal to give off warmth, or do the same but make it cold. Her inventions do sometimes malfunction and explode or melt, often rather comically. The town has been resistant to her attempts to modernize it. The rather unstable nature of her inventions which seem dangerous and her being seeming lazy at first glance has made her sort of an outcast. Not shunned or anything, but she likes her privacy and lives on the town outskirts to avoid having too many random visitors. Lektra invents machines to do chores with the intention of freeing up a pony’s time to be more productive in other ways. She is in the process of starting Bolt Solutions Ponyville branch. </p> <p> (This is the start off for most RPs, and will be further or earlier along depending on setting) </p> <p> <u><strong>Other Information</strong></u> </p> <p> She has Aspergers Syndrome, ADHD, and OCD (Like me IRL) </p> <p> Lektra follows the adventures of the Elements of Harmony avidly, especially Twilight Sparkle. She looks up to and admires this particular Princess, but hasn't actually met her. While she's been around places Twilight has been to, even the old library before it was destroyed, she's just happened to always come around when Twilight was out. </p> <p> Basically, Twilight has an obsessed stalker. A good natured, responsible, and well meaning stalker. But still a stalker. If anyone asks what Lektra is doing and she gets 'caught' observing the Princess and taking notes, she will say it's for her biography. That's <em>mostly </em>true. Lektra does want to write a biography, but a lot of her notes and observations are for herself to obcess over </p> <p> <em><strong>Likes:</strong></em> </p> <p> <em>(These are in no particular order)</em> </p> <p> Engineering </p> <p> Magic and Spells </p> <p> Intellectual discussions </p> <p> Making friends </p> <p> Working on her inventions </p> <p> Filling commissions for clients </p> <p> Sweets </p> <p> Extremely Sweet Vanilla-Flavored Coffee (Usual order is "A LOT of Cream, a LOT of Sugar, a LOT of Caramel, and a LOT of Mocha. I should just barely be able to taste the coffee, and about a quarter of the cup should be additives. If you it's not a quarter of the cup, you didn't do a good job.") </p> <p> Mares (Preferred for any romance RP)  </p> <p> Stallions (Though not a primary preference for romance RP, she wouldn't mind stallions) </p> <p> Sleeping </p> <p> Eating </p> <p> <em><strong>Dislikes:</strong></em> </p> <p> <em>(These are in no particular order)</em> </p> <p> Authority and deliberately silly behavior, except from those who have earned her respect or fondness </p> <p> Being insulted or somehow having her work devalued </p> <p> Going outside (Going outside to where the destination is an indoor place is fine) </p> <p> Socializing with strangers in a public setting (She's shy) </p> <p> Doing work or strenuous activity that isn't somehow connected to her job </p> <p> Athletic endeavors </p> <p> Grossness or really messy places </p> <p> Those who insist they're smarter than her </p> <p> <em><strong>Abilities:</strong></em> </p> <p> <u>Basic Unicorn Telekinesis</u> - Manipulating items with the horn's magic, like picking up a cup to drink, opening a door, or using a tool. Nothing really special or anything. Her magic color is of course bright yellow-orange. </p> <p> <u>Engineering Aptitude</u>  </p> <p> UNFINISHED SINCE THIS SECTION WAS NUKED </p>
