Flint's cutie mark destiny deal is in the realm of psychology, specifically, he's an experimental psychologist, not a therapist or psychiatrist. [What he did for Sombra is up to you]
-Simple thread ideas for him would be him running on the fly field research by gauging 'people's' reactions to different stimuli [yes there'd be confounds, but real world studies are conducted in 'the wild' as well as in labs.]
-An opening plotline idea is that he's trying to see if there was something fundamental about Crystal Ponies that facilitated Sombra's rule. So he'd want to study all types of ponies on topics like resiliency and other issues. He could also take a trip to study griffons, caribou, buffalo or any other species to see how they might be different from ponies. [Yes, these topics might play into what's presented within official board write ups, but just because something is true about a species doesn't mean characters should already know that truth.]
Flint had a daughter with an undefined mare. His daughter was lost to him during Sombra's rule. She would be roughly Jasper's age (preteen)(detailed below)
*Flint and Jasper*
Taking on Jasper was a calculated gamble. Flint believed that Jasper and him could heal each other. I'm not totally sure how to be more specific than that... Sort of... by forming a family bond and taking that bond through its stages, they would be able to attain a positive state of being that would be much more difficult to attain individually. If he was wrong, than he still would have helped a young stallion get by, which is sufficiently good reasoning in itself. Flint has taken notes on his findings on each of their development.
At present, Jasper is Flint's legal ward, not his adopted son. They’ve been together since Sombra’s reign ended, which is about 10 months game time, I’m told.
Zincite’s cutie mark destiny deal is also in the realm of psychology. You can decide based on its look how she differs from her father’s calling. You could even go a therapist route with her, though for now she’s his apprentice like Jasper is.
Zincite is Flint’s blood daughter with an unspecified crystal mare. She was separated from him during Sombra’s reign and it has taken months for the two to be reunited. When they are, she is told that her father has taken on Jasper as his ward. Bit of an awkward spot. A part of her feels replaced.
Important to note is that she is commanding. Not with Flint so much, but she is the type to be the driver of her own life. She’s competitive. Highly intelligent. So there’s a rivalry between her and Jasper, one they try to keep out of Flint’s knowledge. At for Jasper’s part, he wants to keep an eye on her so he knows what she’s doing and isn’t missing out.
Her and Jasper are roughly the same age. Both preteens. Think 12 year old. There’s no blood relationship and little history between them, so if they end up having the chemistry, I wouldn’t mind doing a puppy love ship between them. Bit of a Robin/Batgirl ship, which is lovely. If it works out that way.
