Cutie Mark: A red medical cross with the heart rate monitor line running through it
Additional notes on physical appearance: He has a long scar that goes from his forehead to his left shoulder. It passes over his left eye - his vision is a little blurry because of this. He has numerous other scars, smaller ones that is, all over his body.
Residence: In a small house in Cloudsdale, but he's hardly there. He's usually found in the towns around the Everfree Forest (Ponyville, Hoofington), due to the increasing amount of emergencies nearby.
Talents, Skills: Emergency medicine, can fly steady even while carrying a pony, knowing the fastest route to a destination
Taking a break from his job
Making mistakes (he beats himself up harder than he beats up others)
Death/Failure (oh woe)
Character Personality: Rapid Fire, on the outset, is exactly as his bad haircut suggests - a fiery, sharp-worded, direct pony. He rarely, if ever, holds back. He manipulates ponies to do what he thinks is best for them. He has been known to bite ponies in heated arguments. He doesn't personally care for any pony, even though you'd expect his job to call for it. And he thinks of himself a little too highly... He even perpetuates his image as a heartless jerk.
But most of it is a facade. Or at least, he has some redeeming qualities.
Throughout his life, all the ponies he ever cared about either left him, or died. In fact, when someone especially close to him was near death, he discovered his cutie mark, and his talent... He himself doesn't realize that he acts this way for a reason, although he sometimes feel a sharp loneliness when it's raining... He was never prone to introspection. But it left a profound mark on his view of other ponies - they're not worth knowing. They'll all disappear sooner or later.
Despite his problems, he takes his job very seriously. He never horses around when on call - which is almost all the time. And when facing an emergency situation, he keeps his head and does what he does best - applying his medical knowledge and getting other ponies out of harm's way (or to a hospital for emergency treatment). When he's not working, he's studying. When he's not studying, he's sleeping. If it wasn't for the fact that he was GOOD at his job...
It's kinda interesting, that he doesn't want to know anypony because they'll die eventually, and yet is fiercely devoted to preserving their lives in medical emergencies. You'll see why this is, later.
So many unique talents as of late, this pony especially!!! A hardened individual of prowess and fighting spirit...one who fights for others yet only cares for himself. Such a sharp contrast that causes a dilemma...
