Thirty/Thirty is a character and protagonist of the BraveStarr franchise.
Thirty/Thirty was Marshal BraveStarr's talking "techno horse," who could "transform" from a quadruped into a more anthropomorphic biped. He carried a giant Kerium powered blunderbuss he referred to as "Sara Jane." He was the last survivor of an ancient civilization called the Equestroids, a cybernetic breed of sentient equines, and had strength approximating BraveStarr's bear strength.
Thirty/Thirty was hot-headed and usually preferred to jump into the battle and do some stomping and blasting with Sara Jane which led to vocal disagreements between him and BraveStarr about the use of force in the line of duty occasionally, but Thirty/Thirty still tried his best to do his duty in the best and safest way possible.
