Idea of Benji's design

Benji had a brown coat with red brown tip wings and blue eyes. He had brown hair with yellow strings at the roots of his tail and along the fringes of his hair line. He usually wears a red shirt with a purple bandana around his neck. He also has one peirced ear on the right sid. His Cutie Marks are Aniju's eyes.

Benji is extremely smart in a wide range of fields, he enjoys learning. He is slightly nerdy about the things that interest him the most and sometimes he is a little too smart for his own good. He's quiet and shy up front but he easilly warms up to others. Benji is incredibly calm and is slow to anger, keeping his cool in difficult situations.

Benji is almost deaf in his right ear however lately he started to be able to hear things others can not. His mind's eye fills with images created by sound from usually random sources. He has learned how to use this ability to his advantage, now being able to listen to mechines' voices and even planets and animals if he listens hard enough. So far he can't explain this new ability and that drives him nutts. He has an overwhelming love for music and enjoys a wide range of genres. He finds Ivory fastinating and enjoys all of their different kinds of music they bring from Earth. Benji is skilled at builting machinary of all kinds, he likes to build little robots for fun and find Coop interesting, even though the robot doesn't take kindly to being examined by Benji. For the time being he is trying to find a cure to the zombie apocalypse in case it happens again.

Benji has a dark side that takes the form of a white pegasue with a black and white back. The tips of his wings are red and his tail acts more like smoke. In this form Benji's red eye is sticked together sealing away his true power. Benji gains several new abilities including the ability to revive the dead into zombie slaves. He can also control blood, forming it into various weapons. Strangely in this form, Benji has a scar stitched up on his right fore arm he doesn't know why it's there. Benji at first has a hard time controling himself while in this form and forgets what he did when he changes back. He is prone to fits and becomes extremele volatile. Only in this form does Benji actually consume other ponies, do to his zombie nature. His Cutie Mark changes to Libitina's eye.
