A dark coated pony with a mane of the same colour only a tad bit lighter. There's a thin cobalt blue streak running through it like a lightning bolt.
He's constantly wearing a red scarf. His cutie mark stitched into ...courtesy of Rarity. One side of the scarf is smooth while the other is wild and a bit torn.
Axl always has a scabbard as well with only the yellow hexagon hilt of his sword visible from it on his back.
When travelling he wears an additional darked and yet dull blue jacket usually with a blue tint. As well as a grey belt/sash for holding things.
Often friendly and at times proving to be rather focused. Comes with the teachings...he's been learning the way of the sword for years now .Rarely seen without his blade but that doesn't make him violent. He is in fact polite and courteous if he so chooses.
Hardly much of a charmer anymore unless he's rather fond of you and he's developed some more tact. The red scarf, he's never without that either. Its what makes him quiet and reserved through things. Though being trusting and concerned over others he seems to rarely focus on himself now.
Axl is clearly more boring and less excitable than he once was following what happened a few years ago. Unless of course he's distracted.
Axl's demeanour will change when he becomes more focused.
His mouth runs off a lot less and he appears to be more mature.
'Quite' affectionate towards his close friends. Though only if they are ok with it.
Tad bit forgetful...
Has a habit of pulling his scarf up to his muzzle. It tends to happen when he feels uneasy/shy or thinks the situation requires a more of a serious approach. He does this a lot more often now...its like 'persona'.
He worries for his friends . He worries to a point that he doesn't care for his own well being at times. He will rarely open up unless he is asked to do so now.
Rather unsure of his own abilities at times...
Gear- Double blades...twin swords that make for useful tools in cutting down obstacles and for protecting others.
Axl's blades can be connected into a single one.
Currently he's kept occupied with working along with the Starcade Guild and hanging around ponyville helping at the train station.
Axl visits his master for occasional words of wisdom and training. He's also recently found his brother .
He shares a house with a few ponies in the fields known as the Station.
Regularly trains at the grounds near Everfree.
Wondering about his life's goals.
Dated Sandy Rivers
Kissed Octavia, Cinnamon , SapphireNight on the cheek of course.
Kissed by Whitefire
Great mastery of the sword.
Gump 4 Axl is a lot stronger than he leads on.
Quick 3 He's just above average he can't move as swiftly though.
Excite 2 He tends to be be more focused now then before
Smart 2 He really needs to watch what he says
Caring 2 He cares for the well being of his friends naturally.
Cutie mark- Blade Crest +1 for handling/carrying handheld objects ... and reflected with his brave actions. Swordplay being one of his best.
His cutie mark representing his ideals he hopes to gain in life. The valor/vigor to protect those he cares about and wisdom to hopefully make the right choice.
Something to note
Naturally blades are more durable and harder than hooves and the user should hold no thrill in causing pain to others. Also considering additional weight and dealing with a sword.
Gumption +1 (5)
Excitement -1 (1)
Friends & Extras
PlatinumSpark, -Axl's closest friend they've known eachother for years and have a friendly rivalry between them.
Ryu Sword- Fellow swordsman that occasionally trades wisdom and skills with Axl. He's a good friend and more level headed.
Kyubi Hart ,
Sandy Rivers - Axl's ex girlfriend. Though they remain friends, the past still hasn't been cleared up completely.Sandy still assumes Axl was unfaithful to her and this barrier is what keeps them from ever coming closer . Though Axl aims to break it with time, it is proving rather difficult.
Fluttershy- Recently made friends and he occasionally flirts with her. Though not anymore of course. He would like to talk with her more but she never seems to be around.
Appletart-He finds her rather silly.
SapphireNight- One of his most trusted friends. He'll always be around to help her if she needs it. Sadly he thinks they will never be any closer than they already are. She is still a mystery to him and he wishes she was more open but he won't force it.
Dazzling Starlight- Axl seems to have a small crush on Sapphire's sister.
Twilight Sparkle- A good friend though she doesn't trust him that well. He would like to improve on that . He is actually rather fond of her.
Luna-Has apparently been on her bad side at one point.
Nurse Redheart- He occasionally speaks to her when she isn't too busy. She's a fan of hockey .Soft spot...
Chance- Another mysterious pony that he only met during a party.
Storm Watch- Trying to get through that tough exterior has proved difficult. He enjoys her company even if she likes to mess with him.
Lace- He has a small history with her.
Komaichi- Interesting pony...she has nice horseshoes
Octavia- She's a strange one but fun to be around.
Marceline- Wild pony
Whitefire- Mysterious mare who he seems interested in.She seems to know how to catch his attention most of the time. Axl tends to open up more around her.
Some optional OOC knowledge
((Blades- Yeah its a wonder why a pony would carry weapons but this is just a brief explanation about the said blades.))
Axl invests a good deal of his time and energy in his teachings involving the way of the sword . What makes the sword unique is it can be broken in half from its yellow hilt to be divided into two separate blades (red and blue hilt respectively) .
The emblem of the final blade
Axl can make use of a number Sword Techniques and Blade artes usually would require a few years of practice to be able to perform due to his teachings. He's still learning more!
Axl is working on wielding a Larger blade brimming with energy.The resulting blade is heavier and harder to carry due to weight as well as taxing on Axl's energy reserves to keep it going. Axl is still figuring out any real uses for it ...he has an idea now!
UPDATE- His blade can shimmer for a moment. Now with a reactive edge to be be charged with something
After a recent training regime. He now has access to a lighter more compressed blade with an orange hilt.
Though he seems to only use it during Guild assignments that require more focus and command.
He's a lot speedier with the reduced weight. His style will be more like his nightmarenight attire.

Axl has dyed his coat and mane.The appearance of his scarf and blade is different.
For Nightmare Night he's wearing an additional bluish sleeveless outfit and his mane style has changed. Like this even
