Original Breath's Skyblack GraymaneEdit
"Wow, bullet time without bullets..." -Skyblack's narration in episode 1.
Skyblack from the original Breath series is not very different from his reboot version, as he is emotionless, quiet and apparently calm, but, he uses dark humor when torturing his victims and has no regrets or any guilt whatsoever.
He was contracted by an unknown gang to "lower Ponyville's reputation", so they can take the town over. They resemble the Red Heat clan for having the same objective, which is to take over Ponyville.
AppearanceEditSkyblack has a black coat, a white mane, white eyes with soul-piercing irises. His cutie-mark is a black cloud raining blood, symbolizing his evilness and thirst for blood.
Skyblack apparently has no sympathy for his victims. He kills them merciless. He is emotionless, calm and quiet. He seems to enjoy dark humor as he uses it in his tortures.
In the Spin-Offs: Breath: Crimson Darkness, Breath: The Fall of Celestia, Breath: Rainbow Factory, Breath: Marked Pony, Breath: Nightmare Night and Breath: Blood on the Snow, he is much more psychotic. He shows clear signs of psychopathy, antipathy and various.
Skyblack is a cannibal and also seems to enjoy raping.
Skyblack's past in the original Breath is never revealed. But, he says he was "contracted" to lower Ponyville's reputation so an unknow gang can invade it.
Breath Reboot series's Skyblack GraymaneEdit
"Do I look like somekind of butterfly to have wings?" -Skyblack to Rainbow Dash in episode 4.
Skyblack is a total normal pony in the reboot, he doesn't have any kill desire or rape desire. Totally different from his psychotic counterpart.
Skyblack's personality is totally different from his original version. He is more empathetic, friendlier and less agressive. He also becomes depressed near the end.
But, he also shares some personality traits with his original counterpart, such as being cold and emotionless most of the time, and he also seems to love to joke, although, not to humiliate ponies, except for Rainbow Dash.
Skyblack's background is pretty much the same, only that he accidentally stops by Zecora's tree on his way to Ponyville, where he is cursed with an evil corrupted version of him, that controls him every night to kill and rape ponies, male or female.
When he "arrives" at Ponyville, he passes out and is rescued by the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
