so my friends in my homestuck RP and I did a thing
I got the idea for this guy, and then it just kind of sprung up, everyone throwing a pony into the ring
his name is Trump Card, and he's really good at stage magic
he travels across Equestria in a caravan with his stage troupe, comprised of his partner, Razzle Dazzle (a fast-talking unicorn), and a troupe consisting of Glitz Feather (their lovely earth pony assistant), Cinderblock Mango (an earth pony; their bouncer, bodyguard, and usual caravan-puller), Cardinal Rose (a pegasus fortuneteller), "Bossy Bonny" (their manager, a unicorn), and "Tiger Tim" Timbuktu (a zebra who they force to wear a tiger costume for their shows).
They're kiiind of scammers and conponies-- we described them as a combination of Trixie and the Flim Flam Brothers. They travel across Equestria in their caravan, performing magic shows, selling magic tricks, telling fortunes, and generally selling snake oil.
(Most of the "magic" in the shows is actually Trump's stuff-- Razzle Dazzle's talent is being a fast talker.)
Except for Trump, Glitz, and Razzle, and POSSIBLY Cardinal, everyone in the troup was either conned into it or (in Bonny's case) accidentally shanghaied. (They were skipping town in the middle of a show, she was their audience volunteer for the Disappearing Mare bit, and they forgot to let her out of the box before they threw the stuff into their cart.)
When they're skipping town and avoiding a mob, Cardinal and Trump will hitch up to the caravan and fly them out of danger.
I really wish I had the time to write a comic about these guys.
