Recently the members of Aurora Ward – in their own eccentric fashions – were helping to put together a coalition of mostly-good and somewhat-good imaginary entities to help drive back the advance of some of the very worst ones in areas where pure good could not reach. They touched several realms along the way, including the Pirate Seas, the Anime Worlds – and the Pony Realm.
There Ameobo – shapeshifting, magic-absorbing, and able to split off miniature versions of himself as weaker minions – got cast as Queen Chrysalis, while Armageddon was General Armageddon, her Pegasus General. In the confusion of not following the plot, Armageddon wound up (thanks to 10d6 of Unluck) accidentally “married” – and mystically linked – to Prince Blueblood.
Whether either of them liked it or not.
Drawn over to Earth in Aurora Ward’s wake, Prince Blueblood is currently a junior editor at the paper where Armageddon works in his secret identity.
Prince Blueblood is not so bad as all THAT. Yes, he IS a bit snobbish and vain – but if he was truly useless and unendurable, Celestia has had a LOT of practice in shipping annoyances off to jobs where she will never have to deal with them again. Confronted with what was – at first glance – just another social climbing, gold-digging, girl – obsessed with FASHION in a minimal-clothing world of all useless things – he turned up his “obnoxious snob” routine to the maximum and promptly drove her off.
Unfortunately, in a reality shaped by the thoughts of the shows audience, that left him with all kinds of ill-wishes raining down upon his head.
Personally, Blueblood is a decent tactician (a distinct rarity in a world of cartoon ponies), a reasonably skilled commander, knows a few basic unicorn and military spells, and has the compass-related magic of his cutie mark – the ability to locate things, to find routes, to teleport himself and others short distances, and to modify distances to gain tactical advantages. He’s no professional superhero – but he is a competent mage-commander with a package of cartoon powers to back it up with. There are worse allies.
That doesn’t mean that he isn’t pretty upset about all this.
WHY IN TARTARUS AM I ALWAYS THE BUTT? I GIVE THE OLD BRUSH OFF TO ONE SUPERFICIAL FASHION-OBSESSED GIRL WHO JUST WANTS NOBLE CONNECTIONS AND EVER SINCE I’M A TARGET FOR EVERY DAMNED POSSIBLE IRONIC IDIOCY!!!

While employing his signature spell Prince Blueblood may, once per segment, gratuitously either expand or reduce the distance between two things within his area of effect by up to 8″. For example, he could decree that a character was 8″ further from the center of that fireball that had just gone off, or that the evasive martial artist was 6″ closer (and thus effectively adjacent) to his friend the brick, or that someone was off to the side of that attack that would have otherwise hit them.

Yes, this is likely a little more magically powerful – and far more boosted – than most baseline ponies. I’m presuming that he IS a member of the royal family and that things are stepped up a notch because the base setting is a superhero universe where magic is common enough that people can take courses in it in high school.
