Mr. Ergot is a primal creature of raw magic that exists in extra-dimensional space. He projects a pony representation of himself into the three-dimensional universe which only Lozenge can see.
He looks like an off-brown earth pony stallion with red eyes. He wears a formal white, long-sleeve undershirt, a black vest, and a black bowler hat with a red ribbon. He always carries a gold pocket watch, which perpetually reads 21:12.
An apparent mirthful trickster by nature, Mr. Ergot nevertheless displays the ruthless cunning and intimidation tactics of a deity.
He can manifest matter seemingly out of thin air and teleport instantaneously to any location. He is also apparently indestructible and imperceptible to creatures without magically enhanced sight (or Lozenge).
He carries no equipment, per se, except his clothing and pocket watch. When he appears to Lozenge, his is often reading a newspaper, despite newspapers having not existed for over 1,400 years.
He resurrected Lozenge from the dead so she could serve as his avatar in Equestria.
