Character Profile: Starbuck Cloudhoof
A Brief Introduction to Starbuck
What Purpose Does He Serve?
As a Character, he is from the fanon I'm working on at the moment named "Harmony Lost", specifically, coming from the tail end of the fanon's timeline, 973 years ahead of canon in a divergent timeline. His story being that of a caravan of settlers which went missing without a trace out of a number of different caravans sent to different sectors of Old Equestria, near the end of Act 3 of Harmony Lost.

Starbuck's story is one of a number of short stories which will make up Act 3 of Harmony Lost as a character existing in the world but not key to it. It is all of these short stories i


For Starbuck Cloudhoof at 22 years old:

=================

This version of Starbuck is his 2nd adult stage at the age of 28.
This file is included in the reference pack available for download on my profile page.

For some context of the character, There is a link provided to the a crossover fanfic named "A Future's End" written by Empress Aurora, of fimfiction, between Harmony Lost and Roanoak which this starbuck is a part of. The fiction is written from Roanoak's point of view.

Well this starbuck is a continuation of his younger self following some major events.

The lore isn't built to explain him as such, nor is his profile. Rather he's a character extrapolated from a few basic concepts placed into a fanon universe I've been working for ages.

What I mean is, this starbuck here, is the end result I reached when I tried to think through how his younger self would likely come out after a few years in a new society.

It's total coincidence that they are similar, for example, the goggles are a comfort item to him since back home, due to the nature of the environment, he grew up having to protect himself from a very harsh environment, in his case he used protective goggles to look after his eyes.
So if he spent 22 years having to keep said goggles at reach for when the environment flares up, I imagined it would make sense that he'd feel uncomfortable with some sort of goggle type eyegear, though at the same time would want it to be practical.

So, with his new home making use of salvaged tech brought back with him and other wastelanders through the rift when they were stranded, resulting in a burst of progress in technology while remaining steam based, it would make sense that said comfort goggles would have to help him as he tinkers to get what's left of ruined tech from home working by hybridising it with steam technology, thus those goggles.

As for him being an explorer? Well this ties into the fanon universe he comes from, he was born into one of several societies in the fanon's wasteland. In particular the nomadic descendants of Equestria's survivors. This society is made up of large groups of ponies that function as a sort of extended family, establishing temporary settlements and each pony having a part to play in ensuring continued survival. In starbuck's case I wanted him to be a good doing kind of character so he'd need to have a strong kinesthetic learning ability and a curious nature. Those two traits often give rise to strong set of skills in exploration or orienteering in general so it made sense his talent should be that of exploration and would make use of his talent for his family as one of those who would frequently travel out into the wasteland in search of whatever the settlement needed or to identify where to go next when it was time to move on. This is what ties into his mane and tail, that rough style to it that would come from a pony who's personality didn't much care for staying in one place, so naturally his appearance isn't that important to him since he won't be around those who'd judge him :P

TL;DR: It's a total coincidence, but an interesting one to analyse and it makes me wonder if I may have been following the same patterns of logic as Ezrael's character designer back when they were designing that character xD
