Species backstory:
The Night Mares are the female equivalent of Princess Luna's forces. With a body shape similar to the Traditional Unicorn, Night Mares were created when Luna stopped Death from taking the lives of ponies who enjoyed her night. In return for her act, the Night Mares swore to use their powers to deliver dreams and nightmares to sleeping ponies. Soon after the Night Mares were created, Luna's madness turned her into Nightmare Moon, and she was banished.
Princess Selena, an Alicorn Night Mare, took over the Night Mares. The tribe has fallen into disrepair, and Luna is unaware they still exist. Princess Selena has also held back from telling the Night Mares their true ruler has returned.
Luna's male forces include the earthwalking Phantoms, the magical Moonicorns and the winged Thestrals.

I love this concept! Can I make one? Also, I have a question: I saw Spectral and she has a bone-like armor when she's on the job. Do all Night Mares have such armor?

Yes, you can make one; by default, most of them don't have armor. The more armor they have, the higher their rank - spine, followed by ribs, shoulder plating, and helm. Whether or not they choose to wear it if they have it is up to you - they don't often get physically threatened, and if they were to the armor wouldn't be that much more protection.

I have a question, if i make one, and it isn't an alicorn, could it still have markings on it's body if the body is still a warm grey?

Question I have an mlp oc who I am going to draw as one of these (as what she will turn into once she dies or whatever) she has hybrid wings instead of having the fluffy feathers she has longs straight feather would she still be able to have those long straight feathers as a night mare or would she have normal wings

If you want her to have those feathers, I won't stop you. This is just a guideline, you can go around it if you want.

A few questions for you :p

Do you have a group for these?
Can I make like two? They're gorgeous ;v;
Do they get into romantic relationships or anything?
Can other ponies see them? Or are they like night ninjas? Smoky Disappearance 

Thank you xD

Could I try making a group for them? You can be a co-founder (I'll invite you) and if you want take over once you're co-founder.

I don't have a group for them (no premium membership, so not enough room). You can make as many as you'd like. They can have romantic relationships if they want to, yes. And they can choose whether or not they want to be visible to regular ponies, though they can't hide from Alicorns or bat Pegasi with a lot of practice.

nice. I have one question. if they are all female how do the repopulate?
Reply
:iconiceofwaterflock:
IceOfWaterflock Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014   General Artist
I could go into the whole female =/= vagina thing, but there are other explanations.
1) They are semi-immortal, and as such do not die and do not need to repopulate. However, any spirit can be converted into a Night Mare when they die. 
2) They could also reproduce with the male forces; Phantoms, Moonicorns and Thestrals, but the offspring may not have the same lifespan or powers as a pure Night Mare.
