September[1][2] is a male Earth pony who appears in the IDW comics, typically in the background of comic panels.

Development and design

September is a reference to the Fringe character of the same name, who is one of the Observers—evolved humans that can travel through time and space.[3] His lack of visible tail hair is akin to the Observers' baldness, and his random appearances in the comics also allude to the Observers' appearances at key points in Fringe's history. He is similar to "Slendermane".

September's appearances are added by artist Andy Price,[4] including a speaking role as part of an unscripted scene in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #17 story Reflections Part 1.[5]
