Changeling Commander by Stabzor Changeling Commander by Stabzor
From the season finale aka the_best_episode_ever.

Mostly traced with an armor thrown in because it looks cooler. Thanks to r/Mylittlepony for catching that :D He was on the screen only once (as far as I know) and literally for just 1 second.

I think Thorax has become one of my favorite characters. The show unfortunately failed to expand on his character outside of his debut episode and the season 6 finale. They could have done so much more with him! I admire his bravery for leaving the hive and trying to find his own path/find a way to sate his hunger in a peaceful way. I do agree his reformation was sort of rushed (minus any off-screen moments/possibilities between S2 finale and his debut) and the show didn't really take advantage of him as much as I personally think they should. While I think being shown true friendship while watching the main 6 fight off his brethren is a good start, I think there should have been more reasons as to why he would leave everything behind. Maybe it took until season 6 for him to appear because he was in an inner battle with himself on whether to leave his mother and siblings. I mean he was raised there. He had to have conflicted thoughts. Should he stay loyal to his queen and siblings despite not liking the means of which they sate their hunger? Or should he risk it all, even his own life, to try and find a better way? When someone is born different and/or thinks differently in a society with set rules and expectations, it's going to take time for that one person to turn on everything he was taught and be himself. Hiccup spent many years yearning for acceptance, then finding out he just can't be like the strong viking stereotype that is set in that world. It took meeting and bonding with Toothless for several months to realize his true talents and discover who he really is. 

In my eyes, Thorax must've gone through a whole lot to leave the hive. You can't just see a display of friendship and immediately decide to run off and find a way to share love. True I think Thorax naturally thought differently from his kin but his loyalty to his siblings and queen is also a strong part of him. There has to be a process that explains how Thorax went from random changeling drone to the brave individual that proved that the world isn't black and white. He would have to consider so many things such as betraying his queen and kin, leaving behind everything he knew, and risking death because he refuses to steal the love away from ponies. I do not believe that Thorax could've survived so long without feeding once in a while after the Canterlot Wedding. If he didn't feed, he would've been long dead by now. Or as I first pointed out, he could've left the hive at a later date and wandered back to somewhere near the Crystal Empire.

"The cattle scum had been most frustrating with their resistance to our majesty's swarm, even in territory that had been occupied by our forces early on in this war. 

We must teach them a lesson, and make them know their places. 

That town below, called 'Appleloosa', had been suspected of harboring and assisting resistance fighters in these parts. This is no harvest raid, soldiers; this is to show those within the folly of opposing the Changelings, so this time, there will be no prisoners! 

Spare no one! Destroy the town! Kill them all!"

--- Changeling Alpha 482 , commander of 5th Swarm-Battalion, Her Carapace Majesty's 6th Swarm-Army, Occupied lands Pacification Operation A-7, 3rd year of the Equestrian-Changeling War.

"Two weeks ago, at around 0600 hours, you--Alpha 482--acted on faulty intelligence and launched an attack on the settlement of 'Appleloosa', believing it to be a haven for resistance fighters. Instead, you walked into a trap and almost immediately lost twenty percent of the changelings under your command. Now, a sensible commander would've realized their mistake and ordered a withdrawal while they awaited reinforcements. But not you. No. Instead, you stupidly ordered a second wave even though it was quite clear that you and your soldiers were completely outclassed. And if that wasn't bad enough, when you realized that the battle was lost, what did you do? You ran. Like a coward. It is, perhaps, the greatest of your crimes. Do you have anything to say in your defense?"

 

"*ack*cough*"

 

"Oh, that's right. You can't. I crushed your windpipe, didn't I? No matter. As a duly-appointed Inquisitor of Her Carapace Majesty's Mighty Empire, I find you guilty of crimes against the changeling race.

 

The sentence is death."

 

---Inquisitor Styx overseeing the field trial and summary execution of disgraced changeling commander Alpha 482

"And so AFTER Dr. Death Scythe was revealed to be a changeling infiltrator whose goal was to demonize Equestria in the eyes of the world by building terror weapons supposedly under orders of Princess Celestia, thus making it seem that the changelings were doing the world by favor by turning it into their new kingdom, the "the orbital friendship canon" and various other super weapons were destroyed after it was realized that changelings had no interest in killing ponies and thus to return killing intent in kind would make ponies the savage ones."

megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Ne… Realizing that marauding had proven non-cost effective for the swarm, Chrysalis had the changelings turn to . . . farming. Breeding the descendants of kidnapped victims and genetically tweaking them for maximum love output and maximum obedience, becoming the swarm's new food-staple ironically being treated better by the swarm's upper-ranks than the swarm's own worker drones who were considered expendable. 

"We've been breeding these ponies for centuries to provide for US, the way free-range cattle raise cows, and yet the guards are more hesitant to hurt them than us! There's something wrong when I'm treated with less respect than the food." -- Worker Drone # 232099, name 'Dung Beetle'

I'm pretty sure those things were actually carapaces on their bodies, acting as exoskeletons. Rather than bits of armor.

Hmmm.. that would be right for the regular changeling, they have this blue piece on their backs but this one clearly has a helmet. But yeah exoskeleton makes sense.
