    Cutie Mark is a Ursa Minor

    Special Talent: Ursas Cutie Mark Is a Ursa/Minor It represents his fascination with the wild fauna of Equestria, particularly Ursa's themselves. He is well versed in tracking and survival in areas such as the Everfree Forest.He has built up this knowledge by spending great amount of time exploring them. :earning off of others who have gone before.

    Primary Residence: Ponyville A very small house on the outskirts. Its basic and offers little in comforts as Ursa is more at home now away studying in the wilds.

    Personality: Ursa could easily come across as stoic. In reality his lack of responses to most situations is due to his time alone. He has spent more time tracking creatures and exploring the wilds than socializing with other ponies. He likes the company of close friends and those he see's as such he values greatly. He is loyal to a fault for those he trusts. He does become uneasy in cities and villages as well as with large groups. Talks only if he thinks he can improve the silence.

    Past/History: It was on a camping trip with the rest of his class that Ursa found his calling in life. It was on the very outskirts of the Everfree forest under strict watch of the teachers. They set up in order to taught all about the forest. During the night the group where awoken by a loud roar. Upon leaving the tents the they all saw though still a ways off an Ursa/Minor. Even though scared unlike the rest of the group Ursa was drawn to the creature. It was only due to one of the teachers grabbing him by the tail that prevented him from chasing after it. Shortly after upon returning home he found his cutie mark had appeared. Since that point Ursa took to finding out firstly about the forest and the wilds beyond. Then came learning how to survive track and eventually live in such places. Even now he maintain respect for them trying to find out and study the flora and fauna there. Upon reaching stallionhood his talents where called upon to provide research for any and all in to the creatures of the Everfree and beyond. Those that wanted to know but could not go themselves or needed a guide called upon him.

    Written Sample:

    The moss covered ground was pleasantly spongy underneath his hooves as the dank earthy smells wafted up. His trek through the forest had been quiet for the most part. He was still mentally cataloging the positions of the new family of ursa's that had moved in to the area. The night air cold and crisp felt wonderful. Alas he needed to return to Ponyville his findings where in urgent demand. These creatures though captivating could pose possible trouble if they decided to stray out of the forest.
    He was a mere stones throw from the forests edge when the first signs that something was askew arose. It was the smell it rankled his nose the instant it hit him.
    "What the hay is that"
    He muttered quietly to himself.
    His tracking instincts kicked in he crept forward through the silver moonlit forest. Keeping downwind he circled around where the stench emanated from. There it was a pony just stood staring up at the moon transfixed. But every sense inside Ursa was screaming at him that this was wrong to stay hidden. He picked up a small pebble in his muzzle and cast it clear away from him. It struck a tree trunk, the dull clunk still echoed in the quiet. It was in that instance he saw the horror of what his senses already knew. The ponies face was limp lifeless its jaw hung at an impossible angle as it turned in response to the sound. Its front right foreleg seemed to also jut out and twist half way down. There seemed no life even though it moved and reacted.
    Ursas mind reeled at what he beheld it was unnatural and by that it shook him to his very core. Quietly he skulked around the pony. Keeping low and quiet he crept out in to the night. He had to hurry home he had to tell others. He couldn't deny what he had seen what he smelt and felt. It was dead yet moving, the dead where walking.
