Calamity and Fallout Equestria created by Kkat
Named for how he caused trouble during and after birth Deadshot Calamity was a born into a high ranking Military Family in the Pegasi Enclave. When he was old enough he joined his older brothers in the Military Academy, earning high marks for his skills in long ranged weaponry and survival skills, making him a leader of his own platoon. But one day Calamity caught wind of some the Enclaves projects and their High Ranking officials gawking at the idea of giving anything beneath the clouds assistance and would rather just find a reason to try and terraform the Equestrian Wasteland. Infuriated by this Calamity had threatened to reveal these plans to the public but he was caught and branded a traitor by his own family, literally. He was branded a Dashite, an official enemy of the Enclave state, for having murdered his whole platoon (which was a lie) and bashed to the hell bellow.
For a few years Calamity acted as a Bodyguard, and Escort, and mercenary in New Apploosa, a town built near the remains of Ponyville. Being a Pegasus allowed him to score many jobs and assignments to make a name for himself, but always tried to lean towards clients who were good willed. Eventually he became known as the Towns Protector, watching over the blossoming but illy supported town.
One day Calamity heard about a huge raider/bandit encampment taking refuge in Ponyville being cleared out by a single pony. Scoffing at the idea and the radio hosts history of overplaying events Calamity had taken up guard on the outskirts of town, thinking there'd likely be raiders in the area. And seemingly he was right, a lone raider was approaching the town, completely armored and loaded. He caught the raider off guard and battled them, until he realized that this was the pony he had heard about on the radio, a newly escaped stable pony, Littlepip.
Feeling rather remorseful Calamity helped Littlepip find her way around New Apploosa. When he heard that She was off to kill an encampment of slavers in the area he argued with her and her naivete on how the wasteland works, but it was in vain, it was then that he thought back to how he was labeled a traitor for trying to do the right thing. Calamity reconciled with himself, already being in her debt and knowing she'd risk her life to save her potentially enslaved friend, Calamity abandoned his better judgment, taking on what would become the greatest adventure of his life, Being Littlepips, right hand man.
Calamity carries the appearance of a well built Pegasus cowboy. He wears a battle saddle and his trademark black desperado hat. he is rust colored both in his orange mane and red coat symbolizing his hobbies of working in dirty environments both metaphorically and literally. His cutie mark is a branded colorless Rainbow Dash cutie mark. Symbolizing that he has defected from the Enclave and is to be treated as a traitor to his kin. Formerly it was screwdriver and hammer. He speaks with a Dixie, southerner accent.
Calamity is a pony who lives and dies by loyalty, even being the bearer of the element long after its former bearer Rainbow Dash faded away. Its something he values above all else in others and what drives him to make his decisions. Its what led him to betray the Enclave because he saw they weren't loyal to their word about saving the wasteland. And it what led him to follow Littlepip at all to begin with. Her undying loyalty to her friend, and his indebtedness to her to begin with. He values others who are loyal and honest to their friends and those around them, and views the opposite, liars or those who would deceive those around them, to be everything wrong in the world. Otherwise he can be very stubborn simple pony, often seeing the world as black and white to a degree and is more willing to kill should the situation call for it than his friends.
