I always wanted to show how Corvus looked like before he has turned into the pony most of you know.
This scene plays shortly before he left his new home to seek out his adoptive family. Before he has found his wife Sagitta he was simply traveling through the land. But he was attacked by a savage griffin and taken by surprise he has been badly injured. In the end he managed to escape only to fall into the largest river of his land which was moving through a huge territory where the forest was ruling over everything.
Sagitta who was collecting herbs for her incantations and flasks noticed a trail of blood floating down the river and only moments later she saw a stallion holding himself against a piece of wood. Badly injured and only with a very low amount of blood he was brought to the village where his future wife was living. She was the one who took care for him and healed his wounds. It was a very slow process and due the fall Corvus has lost his memory. During this time he has learned how to live far away from greater cities. In the end he fell in love with Sagitta who was sharing his feelings.
They married and lived a happily together. Eventually the lost memory started to return and Corvus desperatly wanted to return to his family which probably thought he was dead. But it was a very hard choice for he knew that his wife was carring his child in her. Yet his beloved wife managed to convince him to go.
He promised that he would return to them as fast as he could. For a moment he lost himself in her eyes before he left. What he did not see though was the Cutie Mark that appeared on his flank... only to dissapear as fast as it came. Only a few days later the plague called the Black Death has been unleashed... and with it the fate of his family has been sealed.
Corvus found his wife half dead, the village destroyed and the most of the ponies he knew slain and left on the ground. A new chapter started and for a entrire millenium he was traveling the land as the pony we all know by now.
Corvus and Sagitta belong to me.
