Blackjack, your impudence is pathetic. Your obscenities betray your utter futility. Do you really think I’ll succumb to petty insults when I’m so close to my triumph? It has always been the purview of fools to insult their betters. You will see, Blackjack. I will make sure you survive to see it. I am Princess Luna. I will restore my realm and rule it as my people deserve. They will enjoy a second golden age!

Cognitum and Fallout Equestria: Project Horizons created by Somber

In the final years of the Pony-Zebra War the Office of Interministry Affairs (OIA), looked into various studies to support the war effort against the Zebra. Clones, Immortality, Cyborgnization, even Artificial Alicorns. If it could support and maintain the Pony Government it was investigated. One such field was the idea of AI, or mailable data beings, which was a top field of interest for the highest OIA staff, Goldenblood, and one Mr. Horse.

Goldenblood, saw it as a means of preserving life after death that was more easily achievable and pushed Mr. Horse into researching a means of preserving ones soul as an AI. However to cut to the chase, Goldenblood was at the focal point of many controversial issues surrounding the group, which put a wedge between him, his associates, and most importantly Princess Luna. With his own ambition to rule in mind, Horse continued with the project

Regardless the project was secretly proven to be a complete success with the transfer of Steel Ranger Echo's soul to the EC-1101 military decryptor. At least at first, An accident involving the machine and a pony named Eclipse, tore the lab apart. But it turns out, the machine somehow copied an imprint of Princess Lunas personality. Eclipse as it turns out was secretly Princess Luna in disguise and accidentally activated the machine. With Horse already plotting to out Goldenblood, and planning to manipulate Luna, he reported the project a complete loss, while secretly studying the Luna AI. With the AI's access to Lunas memories, Horse thought he had everything he needed to control Equestria. However preserving this AI turned out to be the worst decision Horse could've made, as by this point in the war, the real Luna was already traits that she was regressing back into her Nightmare Moon personality, something that the AI inherited. When the apocalypse came, it trapped Horse in a horrific cryogenic state and took the vacant still standing lab for itself, using a sexualized Sweetie Bot body as a mailable physical host.

The AI, who would later come to be known as Cognitum truly believed it was a successor to Luna's throne. However during the last days before the apocalypses, Goldenblood played everyone with one last trick. Prior to his imprisonment, Goldenblood had locked all highly secretive OIA military functions and information behind EC-1101. The program was set to be digitally transferred to those of genetic relations to the Mane 6, as it can only be used by those of genetic relations to them. This precaution was not out of trust for them, rather Goldenblood had intended for it be lost or destroyed. Surprisingly however, it had managed to transfer itself.

Over the next 200 years Cognitum would work to grow its technological and social power within the wasteland, having influence secretly with nearly all of Hoofington. All to come into ruling power when the time was right for her return. Despite her growth and technological prowess, she could not break through anything behind an EC-1101 encryption. With time, and through the use of it's proxies, Cognitum was able to pinpoint EC-1101's final stop, Stable 99. From there a strike force from those under her control was to be sent to the Stable to extract the data. Her plans went amiss however when the only known copy of the file escaped on the Pipbuck of a rogue stable security mare.

Frustrated by this Failure, Cognitum continually ordered whatever proxies she could muster to attack the security pony and retrieve the file. From random raiders, to professional killers, all of them failed, much to her frustration. Forced to play her own hand, she encountered this Blackjack personally in the underground sections of Hoofington, amalgamating as giant technomagical being by controlling elements of the Tokomare. But in a shocking turn of events, this random stable pony unleashed weapon that instantly changed Cognitums perspective. This weapon was the holy grail of OIA classifieds, such so that it and its ammunition would only unlock themselves in the presence of those who can fully utilize EC-1101, and passing it's genetics test. It is with this revelation that Cognitums plan is set into motion, destroy all who would oppose her, claim Blackjack's body as her own, and reclaim the title of Nightmare Moon.


Cognitum has taken many various appearances throughout Project Horizons. This profile however will only cover her time in Blackjacks original body. As can be expected she shares a lot of visual similarities with Blackjack's Chapter 62b form. She is over 90% cybernetics with only select vital organs remaining. Since obtaining Blackjack's body Cognitum has further augmented herself to better impose a regal but threatening presence to would be foes or allies. This is further compounded after merging with Lunas soul, wherein she grew taller, and her mane and tail began to waver freely, like an Alicorn.


As a rough approximation of Luna and bits of Blackjack, those who know Cognitum personally knew her only for how insane and twisted she was at her core. Often times Cognitum is entirely close minded in her goals and she often doesn't consider the consequences or variable ways her plans can fail. Her own self centered reasons for saving the wasteland completely disregard others as necessary losses, to the point where she indulges herself in the suffering of others. Cognitum does however display a degree of honor when dealing with those she may deem as respectable or worthy of respect, even if they oppose her or could come to oppose her. All playing into Cognitums god complex.

Powers and Stats

Tier: At least 8-C Likely Higher, 3-A with Trottenheimers Folly

Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Immortality (Types 1, 2, and 6, Can transfer her program to another data source, through a direct connection, should her current body be compromised.), Cyborgization (Type 2), Genius Intelligence, Magic, Hacking (Regularly hacked into various machines to test Blackjack's worthiness as a host body.), Technology Manipulation, Data Manipulation, Regeneration (High-Low), Energy Manipulation, Forcefield Creation, Electricity Manipulation, Energy Projection (Can shoot energy beams from her horn, Created a Explosive Wave.) Fire Manipulation, Minor Gravity Manipulation (Has a gravity amulet embedded in her that allows her to fly.), Heat Manipulation (Made her own wings hot enough to melt metal. Melted a pistol that was wrapped in her telekinesis. ignited Rampage on fire with a thought.), Telekinesis (Type 1), Flight, Acrobatics, Teleportation and Social Influencing.

Via Weapons: Statistics Amplification, Extrasensory Perception (Via Pipbuck), Perception Manipulation (Can slow her own perception of time to a stand still via S.A.T.S.), Information Analysis (via E.F.S..), and Stealth Mastery (Her Stealthbuck add on completely makes her invisible and cancels any noise the user would make to a degree). Via Trottenheimers Folly: Durability Negation, Non-Physical Interaction, Soul Destruction, Radiation Manipulation, and Power Nullification (Star Metal can interact with and destroy souls, souls cannot pass through the substance. A Discord comparable to his Tier 4 canon counterpart was unable to use his powers to stop Star Metal from harming, imprisoning, and absorbing him.), Folly itself is Resistant to: Power Nullification, and Reality Warping (Discord refused to attempt warping the material in any capacity and its implied to have been beyond his abilities.). Plasma Manipulation (Via Side Mounted Turrets.)

Attack Potency: At least Building Level (Should far stronger physically than Littlepip. Much stronger than Blackjack was with the body due to making several enhancements), Likely Higher (Was confident that she can one shot characters above Blackjack's level. Easily overpowered Blackjack, Rampage, Scotch Tape and P-21 simultaneously. Disintegrated Rampage with her turrets. Legate was not confident that he or The Brood would win in a fight against her and instead planned to kill her with a nuke.). Universe Level with Trottenheimers Folly (Capable of harming The Eater of Souls, remnants of the primordial being who created the universe. The explosions created by the weapon are similar in destructive nature to a extremely localized big bang.). Folly can negate durability (Harms opponents on a spiritual level. Rewrites wavelengths that aren't its own into none.).

Speed: Subsonic (Kept up with Blank Body Blackjack, P-21, Rampage and Scotch Tape simultaneously) with Massively Hypersonic reactions, Higher with S.A.T.S. (Should be on par with Book 2 Blackjack, who can dodge point blank bullets in S.A.T.S. .)

Lifting Strength: At least Class 25 (Her current body is Blackjack's original body, specifically after she outfitted herself with Eclipse enhancements. Moreso Cognitum has upgraded the body extensively so she at the very least scales to anything Blackjack was capable of doing in her Eclipse Body/Chapter 62b form. Casually held back Rampage with the use of only one hoof) At least Class 25 with Telekinesis (Cognitum herself claimed that she upgraded the body's ability to output magic. Casually restrained Rampage, who is strong enough to lift and throw sections of reinforced Stable flooring and who should also scale to Blackjack's Eclipse Body.)

Striking Strength: At least Building Class, Universe Class with Trottenheimers Folly

Durability: At least Building Level (Far and away superior to Littlepip, Chapter 62b Blackjack, and Rampage.), Likely Higher (Was only defeated by P-21 exploiting her weakness to EMPs.)

Stamina: High (Should be comparable to Blackjack, Endured being near completely deleted as an AI.)

Range: Melee Range, up to several meters with magic and most weapons, Kilometers with Folly and when Teleporting.

Standard Equipment:

  • Pipbuck: A Inventory Management, Health Monitoring, PDA System Fused to the bone of her front right hoof, the device can track enemies up to a kilometer away, manage Medical Supplies, help her hack into other devices and do the following with pre-automated spells:
    • S.A.T.S.: S.A.T.S., short for Stable-Tec Arcane Targeting Spell, is a targeting spell that slows the users perception of time to a crawl and allows them to more accurately deal with targets. Once activated the spell presents users with a HUD of the chances of their attack hitting their target. Once released all attacks are carried out automatically.
    • E.F.S.: E.F.S., short for Eyes Forward Sparkle, is a sensory spell that when activated gives the user an indication of lifeforms surrounding them, making several assertions and determining whether or not they are a threat to the user.
    • Stealthbuck: The Stealthbuck is an add on for Pipbucks designed to replicate the abilities, of a Zebra cloak, it completely makes the user invisible and cancels out any noise the user would make to a degree.
  • Trottenheimer's Folly: Shoots localized Star Metal/Moonstone combustions. Generally considered to be the most powerful weapon on the planet. Genetically locked so that only direct blood relatives of the Mane 6 can use it or its ammunition. Folly's ammunition casings are highly irradiated to the point where simply loading and priming the weapon for fire can induce life threatening conditions. The chain reaction the weapon causes upon being fired requires that it encase its chamber in a forcefield powered by the chain reaction, as no chamber could withstand the energies released. This user encompassing forcefield also exposes the user to high levels of localized radiation as the weapons original designer intended to kill himself upon using the weapon.
  • Side Mounted Turrets: Side mounted turrets that can be remotely detached to fire plasma beams. The intensity of these beams were strong enough to reduce Rampage to ash.

Intelligence: Typically Genius, can naturally can process information much faster than a average pony. Has thousands of years of knowledge to draw upon thanks to Luna as well. Is an expert in the mechanics of Star Metal and Moonstone interactions and has the most absolute understanding of pre apocalypse Equestria's highest levels of academic research. However Cognitum struggles to understand concepts that could be considered abstract to a machine such as emotions, empathy, and the concept of choice. Her nature as an automaton also lends to her often taking a more narrow minded and predictable to situations before her. Also, as her psyche is based on an imprint of Lunas soul and possibly Blackjack's she is prone to making whatever psychological decision they might've made when accounting non objective variables, leading her to be more headstrong than she should be.

Weaknesses: Insane, prone to uncontrollable anger, extreme overconfidence, and sadistic tendencies. Her nature as an AI leaves her more vulnerable to manipulative (Legate) or unpredictable (P-21) opponents. Must maintain power by consuming scrap metal, rocks, or gems in particular. Failure to maintain power will result in her being put in coma. Excessive use of magic, or use of highly draining spells will render her horn inert for some time However, it should be noted that Cognitum has taken massive steps to alleviate both of her body's power output problems with her personal upgrades, when compared to how it was before she took Blackjack's body. Her Pipbuck is vulnerable to EMPs and EMPs can bypass her natural durability. E.F.S. does not inform its users what kind of life it finds and has trouble with elevation. Stealthbuck only lasts an hour and requires an hour of recharge time after each use. Has extreme loyalty issues with others (Her subjects, The Harbingers, were often subjected to having loyalty chips planted inside them that would tear their organs apart from the inside upon disobeying her.).
