(( It was far too easy coming up with the rich back history of the Equestrian Royal Guard.  Looking back, though, I kinda wish I’d collaborated on this with Whirly Willow.  I really love her interpretations of the Night Guards — a subject I often went out of my way to avoid addressing. ))

(( This comic was originally posted in two parts, with several days in between.  At the time, I was still getting back into drawing practice, so there is a difference in quality between the two halves. ))
