Aurae43 is an "Equinaut", a bio-mechanical pony from an unknown star system far off in the MLP universe. Her body is a product of fusing an incredibly diverse artificial intelligence program and the latest (in terms of her star system) in biotechnology with the form of the native species, Equinauts, to form the most perfect equine-based artificial lifeform ever created. Unlike the ponies that populate Equestria, the design of Aurae43's spine allows her to walk erect on her hind-hooves like a human, similar to that of her creators and the populace of her original home. Her limbs and head are electromagnetically attached to her body and allow more free movement than what is anatomically possible, also allowing her to temporarily remove parts of her body to fit into tight spaces, and reattach themselves together. Her creator programmed her with only three initial orders into her mind: Think, Learn, and Live, which served as her basis for more complex thoughts and to develop her own ever-growing knowledge bank.
Word of this creation spread quickly around her home planet, and the Alicorn that was entrusted with ruling it ordered that the artificial pony be taken and destroyed, for fear of its potential threat to the civilian population. When a full-scale hunt for Aurae43, her creator managed to send her off the planet in a hypersleep pod, but not before ordering her that where ever she lands, she must follow her three initial programs and live as her own pony. After literally thousands of years of sleep, Aurae43's pod finally arrives at its predetermined destination, a thriving and fertile planet in a region called "Equestria"...
Aurae43's initial personality is, without a more polite way to put it, particularly cold yet curious. She speaks in a monotonic voice with a metallic echo in her speech, and is brutally honest in her observations. Since she is still learning about life, Aurae43 knows little in terms of emotion and empathy or even right and wrong, but is willing to develop this understanding and eventually feel them herself. She is curious about unknown factors and explores them thoroughly, unless there is no way to gather more information from what she has at hoof. Since her unexpected exodus from her home and the details associated with it, she distrusts many ponies on their introduction and any form of physical contact during that timeframe is considered to her as a threat. After sometime, she would eventually warm up to them, and will learn more about them. Before being sent off the planet, Aurae43's creator gave her a special helmet and tank pack that recycles the air in her suit to help her in case the air in where ever she lands in unbreathable to her. Her creator specifically told her, under no circumstances should she ever take off the helmet. Any attempt by an outside force trying to remove the helmet will be met with violent force at Aurae43's hooves. Fortunately, since she is robotic, she doesn't rely on food or water, rather she is "powered by knowledge", meaning as long as she is able to keep learning and gathering new information like daily events or new ponies, she will keep living.
TL;DR, I made an OC pony. Woohoo.
I wanted to make an OC pony that was COMPLETELY different than most, considering she never originated anywhere near Equestria AND she is basically an artificial robot alien pony. You don't see many of those everyday.
I named her Aurae43 because "aurae" in latin means "heaven", and the 43 is her model number (the creator went through 43 iterations of his design to get to his best creation).
