    Blue lightning

    Looks: White stallion with blue eyes. Mane is Doctor Whooves style but has a bit hanging in front of his face. Tail is longer Doctor Whooves style. Both have a blue streak running through. Hooves are like Shining Armors or Big Macs.<p>

    Abilities: He is good with a pistol and dagger, but not as much with other weapons. He CAN play gutair, but it just sits in his office all the time. He is good at making and maintaining machines.
