On her muzzle she wears bifocal, which hang from a chain that is pierced into her ears. Her eyes became damaged after a scuffle at a young age, which never healed properly. She has a long, flowing mane, the crest of it kept in a fauxhawk style, while much of the rest of her mane remains braided.

Her wings are deep turmeric at the arms, draining into a deep gold that is soaked in fiery orange. The undersides of her wings are orange with gold speckling of down feathers, much resembling a fire.


Residence: Saddle Arabia


Occupation: Scholar of Architectural Anthropology

 

Architectural Anthropology is the study of the relationship between ponies and their environments . She had become interested in other cultures when she became sick. Learning of the world she could not experience filled a void within her. With her brother away from her side she looks to take her studies across the globe.

 

Cutie Mark: Grey Cloud, Three Descending Bolts departing at the center, the end points of the left and right bolt facing in outward from the center bolt.

 


Unique Traits:

 

Large Wings: Large wings aide in the mare's ability to generate thunder from her clouds without stomping on them with his hooves. They allow long distant flight, spending much of her time gliding, but due to their size she is limited in the aerial acrobatics he can partake in.

 

Namesake: Distant Thunder is capable of stirring up thunderstorms from a distance rather than needing to be on her cloud to do so. Her larger than usual wings clap strongly, allowing this feat.

 

History:

 

On a dark and stormy night twin foals were born to a mare by the name of Night Wind and a stallion known as Torrential Storm. It was a difficult birth for Night Wind. To her were born a rambunctious pair of foals that were the pride of their tribe. With manes as red as fire and wings that glittered with clay, sand, and sun... they were seen as oddities with such large, tri-colored wings.

 

The twins were born to the Storm Family, a respected bloodline from Saddle Arabia. Their tribe had many generations of artists and entertainers. They were once a nomadic tribe which eventually settled amongst the growing cities around Saddle Arabia’s culture of knowledge and philosophy.

 

Because of their position as artists and entertainers, the family was able to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. They often times saw to the weather management that was vital to the survival of the desert horses, but never strayed far from their duties on the stage and in theater. While some were raised as government officials, others were given permission to participate in academic studies and even fewer: the military. The family was very strict. Thunder and Lightning were raised to be entertainers, in part due to the tri-colored wings. They were seen as the perfect subjects for the stage and aerial dancing, or even serving as court jesters. They would not be allowed to decide their roles in life. They were larger than most of their kind, but not by much, though it was still enough to make them a little awkward and targets of bullying amongst younger peers.

 

The Twins were very close, as twins were wont to do. Separating them was a fight. They were often set apart as it became so problematic that it was better just leaving them together. Thunder was the older sister. She was born first, but had been the last the cry. Lightning was the younger brother, born last and always the first to tears. They were raised with strict, binding rules, as were the generations before them.

Colts did not cry, and fillies did not spit. The twins were stubborn and would often corrected or disciplined. Thunder was weak, many feeling her blustering was due to her weaker body. Though, in truth, it was something more sinister than that. Their grandfather, who was the current head of house, felt the current punishment techniques were unsuitable to train the young ones. Thunder was the ringleader to the pair and her actions always did to sent the young colt into mutiny against the elders' attempt at discipline.

 

Thunder was often sent outside on the cold desert nights to separate her from Lightning for extra training. The pair would remain close even if all that disbarred them was a thin sheet of glass, making the attempt at separation pointless, though it did keep them quiet. Thunder eventually developed pneumonia from a cold that would normally be easily be healed from and ended up hospitalized. Thereafter she was often hospitalized and was unable to continue her training as an entertainer. Lightning was devastated. He was an asocial colt, only ever participating in activities Thunder did. He never understood why the adults didn't help Thunder. She and the colt never slept alone so, throughout her sickness they were forced to sleep apart, but Lightning crept into the room she was quarantined in or ran away to the hospital when she was too ill for the busy family to tend to.

 

The made became increasingly outgoing, despite her illness and would oft escape the manor under the light of the moon as Lightning was their caution and she their confidence. With naught but anger after they had taken away her brother she was driven to a reckless attitude and behavior, trying to continue training despite her weakness. Afraid what others might say, or think of her failing to uphold the standards held by their family’s traditions: Thunder was sent to study Architecture at the institute where she would eventually develop a superiority complex and weaken herself if it meant outperforming others. Lightning had always been the one to act with due caution to discourage her more rowdy behavior so she could better respond to others. Bullying her peers by way of mocking insults eventually led to her removal from the school under the pretense of a wing disorder. Her larger wings were said to make it difficult for her to balance resulting in often falling down. Eventually Thunder came to believe this. She was soon able to go tutoring. Her grandfather secured a fine tutor for her through his connections. She studied, becoming interested in the architectural structures of ancient pony cultures around the world. When Lightning would visit her and tell her of all the different ponies in the world, she would be thankful knowing she could never meet them, being much too sick to travel. At her encouragement, and her own selfish desires to see the world through his brilliant eyes, she asked him to travel.

 

In doing so she would lose her brother. The relations between Equestria and Saddle Arabia had allowed the nation to open their borders to those allied to the Alicorn sisters. Because of this he would have a much easier time in his travels. Since then she had become anxious, unwaveringly tense. She wanted to travel a while, meet faces and study the different cultures. Travel, study… to see everything Lightning did...

 

 

Character Personality:

 

Thunder is ill mannered, impolite. Her arrogance comes from ancient family traditions and a rich history that gives her a sense of privilege. Her weakened body is disregarded by her association with her noble house, allowing her to enter places others may usually be unable. Sometimes this pride is used to mock and act  pretentious so she may get her way, but the fear of rejection fuels her to overblow her experiences and act self-centered. She is a cunning, seemingly uncaring pony but is a bit of a flirt with much anypony that passes her way. 

 

She can be a bit of an adventurous individual, obsessively driving toward knowledge, especially of other and unique cultures, which often time leads her into troublesome situations and deep, dank caves that nopony should be. She can become ecstatic over certain subjects and fly off chattering about them without notice of social cues indicating he should stop.


Character Summary:

 

A scholar that loves to learn and travel, she is a bit reckless and tends to disregard her responsibility to her family. Driven by a desire to see the world her brother loves the pegasus often goes above the sense of self preservation to try and show off or take. She is easily done in by challenges, her pride difficult to shake. Even still she can be caring when the situation calls for it, capable of using her body when not driven to fear how her sickness consumes her strength.
