Odsin Ends' Mystical Items by Tprinces Odsin Ends' Mystical Items by Tprinces
Something drew you to my shop. Something powerful.

Welcome weary traveler! Dr. Ends' mystic shop aims to please any need. But be warned! Every item on my shelf has a story. Make sure you are not its final chapter.

~~~~

I was very surprise to see the lack of love for this fine colt from "Magic Duel." Especially because the minute I saw his design, I absolutely fell in love with him. I don't know if you're aware, but I'm a bit of a film buff, and I have a slight fetish for classic film archetypes. This character is known as the "Magical Chinaman," usually appearing in Westerns and/or steampunk/railroad movies. The most notable would be Dr. Lao of "The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao." This is because during the 1800's, many Asian immigrants found work constructing the transcontinental railroad, which gave those migrating West a fascination with the then strange culture of the orient. Hence the development of the character in film.

So, since he had no name and no love, I decided to dub him "Odsin Ends." He also goes by "Dr. Ends" and "Odsin" to his closest friends. He will sell you anything your curious heart desires, but heed his warnings! Often times those most mysterious of trinkets are that way for a reason.

He also has his own facebook page :meow:

In the past 4 days, I've managed to write 8,500 words for my current fanfiction project, yet I've never been able to do something like this without a deadline looming over my head >.<
Hello, this is Goldymarg ~

I'm currently starting an open-world anthology series on fimfiction, and I was wondering if I could have permission to use this as a cover image temporarily, at least until I can commission another piece.  I've always wanted to write about this character in some way ~

I actually made a Tumbler ask blog for this character, And I used the same name! I love the possibilities this character presents. I'd like to know what you think of my take on him, if you don't mind. Also, your picture is pure awesome sauce. [link]

Odsin Ends... that is the best possible name. I shall use my divine mind powers to make it canon.

We need more of him, so he will be widely recognized as Odsin Ends.

If that isn't his fanon name, I'm casting my vote for it right now

The fandom does it again; finds an unnamed background pony and gives him a name. And a pretty good one to I must admit. And now that this picture is featured on Equestria Daily, I can see this name becoming his official name in no time at all.

Actually plan on using Odsin Ends in a cameo in one of my fics, and I didn't know what to call him until now. Thanks so much hehe.

Nice, although I really wish I could write the entire transcript of the DOTA 2 Shopkeeper itself. :)

Yes! I agree wholeheartedly with everything you said in that description! He needs more fanart and love, a sweet backstory, and I appreciate the name you gave him. Subte puns are the best kind of puns! Nice work on the picture, too.
