SCP-017 AKA "King Sombra"

Class: KETER

Princess [RETRACTED]'s description of SCP-017:Edit

Princess [RETRACTED] describes King Sombra as a unicorn (whose heart is "black as night") who took over the [RETRACTED] Empire.

In a flashback that Princess [RETRACTED] showed her pupil and later Agent [RETRACTED], Sombra looks down gleefully from his palace at a chain-gang of Crystal Ponies, when two silhouettes of Princess [RETRACTED] and her sister shoot a beam at him that turns him to "shadow" and banishes him to "the ice of the arctic north".

[RETRACTED] says he was able to put a curse on the empire as he was imprisoned, which caused it to "vanish into thin air".


Sombra is a dark gray unicorn with a black spiky mane and tail.

Unlike regular unicorn horns, which match the pony's coat color, and are straight and segmented, Sombra's horn is curved, smooth, sharp at the tip and it gradiates from dark gray to red.

He has sharp teeth with two visible fangs unlike other ponies, and also has red irises, but most often his otherwise white eyes appear green and have a purple mist emanating from them, which disappears both times he is attacked.

He wears silver armor on his legs and neck, a crown with horn-like points on his head, and a red cape that covers his flank.

When his flank is shown briefly in Princess [RETRACTED]'s flashback, he has no visible cutie mark.

When he's turned to shadow in the flashback only his head remains, and when he returns to attack the [RETRACTED], he was an amorphous black cloud, only his eyes are visible at first.

He says  "Yes... crystals..." for some unknown reason when he sees crystals.

SCP-017 is made up of 5 parts:Edit

SCP-017 - "King Sombra" himself

SCP-017-A - His Armour

SCP-017-B - Crown

SCP-017-C - Cape
