Fawkes Nobleton is a former General of the Royal Guards. He came to Ponyville after an injury.
A bit introverted, he needs the strangers initiation to become friends. He will always accept a challenge and helps ponies in need.
He still has none, since he was working as a Royal Guard until recently, and hasn't really met anyone in Ponyville.
Fawkes Nobleton was a general in the Royal Guard, until the return of Nightmare Moon and her army. The battle injured Fawkes gravely, and he was given a purple heart for his service, but he was unable to serve as a Royal Guard anymore.
He relocated to Ponyville to live in a more peaceful environment, and to help keep the peace.
His cutiemark is an iron shield, for he found his true joy and talent as a leader in the Royal Guard.
