Character Description
Lightning is a proud unicorn male, standing tall, with sharp, angular features. His coat is white, while his mane and tail are long and block, with his mane fastened into a tall topknot with red, silken cord. Cold, calm, calculating eyes watch the world from a visage that seems detached and distant. He's fond of wearing a white robe with red trim over his armor, and carries a long, curved sword against his flank. His cutie mark is a red circle, within which is yellow bolt of lighting crossed with a curved blade.

While he seems often quiet and disaffected, Lightning Strike simply likes to think before he acts. While a talented warrior, he realizes that the best battles are those never fought, because no one has to lose. He is not as playful as a normal pony, but take joys in simple displays of beauty, quiet contemplation, and gardening.
Character History
Born of pony diplomats, Lightning Strike was raised in a distant land, far from Equestria. While his parents were diligent about instilling in him the importance of his own cultures values and mores, he learned more of a foreign culture, falling in love with tales of their wandering swordsmen, knights who stood against tyranny and bandits to defend the common folk from danger. He studied ancient arts of swordsmanship, blending it with his own unicorn magic to form a unique hybrid style that combined the elegance of the blade with his nature abilities to channel magical power.

Of course, his style, being new and strange to the locals, was subject to many challenges, some he lost and some he won. Lightning would likely have still be in that distant land, had he not fought a duel against the governor's son, leaving the boy with a nasty scar across his nose. To avoid punishment, he was sent to Equestria, a land so strange and foreign to him. Their clothes, their customs, even their food was so unusual, yet comforting in a strange way.

Since his return home, he's travelled Equestria exactly like the wandering warriors of his beloved tales, protecting the weak, defending the wounded, and trying to live up to a code of honor older than the world he knows.

Class Abilities:

Weapon and Armor Proficiency

A kensai is proficient in simple weapons and in a single martial or exotic melee weapon of his choice. A kensai is not proficient with armor or shields and suffers normal arcane spell failure chance when casting magus spells while armored.

Canny Defense (Ex)

At 1st level, when a kensai is wielding his chosen weapon, he gains the canny defense ability. This is identical to the duelist prestige class ability of the same name, save that his chosen weapon may be of any type.

Arcane Pool (Su) 7 Points

This arcane pool has a number of points equal to 1/2 his magus level (minimum 1) + his Intelligence modifier. The pool refreshes once per day when the magus prepares his spells.

Spend 1 Arcane Pool to add +2 enhancement to weapon for one minute. Can trade enhancement to add dancing, flaming, flaming burst, frost, icy burst, keen, shock, shocking burst, speed, or vorpal qualities to weapon.

Spell Combat: As a full round action, may cast a standard action spell and take a full attack. All Attacks take a -2 penalty.

Spell Strike: When casting a touch spell, may deliver the spell with a free action attack with weapon.

Magus Arcana
Arcane Accuracy: As a swift action, spend 1 Arcane point to gain +Int Bonus to hit as an insight bonus.

Perfect Strike (Ex)

At 4th level, when a kensai hits with his chosen weapon, he can spend 1 point from his arcane pool in order to maximize his weapon damage. Don’t roll for damage—the weapon deals maximum damage. This affects only the weapon’s base damage dice, not additional damage from sneak attack, magical weapon properties, spellstrike, or critical hits. If the kensai confirms a critical hit, he can instead spend 2 points from his arcane pool to increase his weapon’s critical multiplier by 1.
