History: Steel Wing was born in Cloudsdale. He spent his childhood flying around and learning new tricks. He felt like someday, he'd get his cutie mark in stunt flying. One day, he met a younger pegasus named Feather Hazel. She was a fun filly who loved to fly, but she was much less showy than Steel. They became fast friends. One day, when flying together, Steel Thought he'd show Hazel a trick he'd mastered. Flying on his back. She thought that looked like fun and wanted him to show her how to do it. He did, and they worked together until she finally was able to very slowly but steadily fly on her back. They were both so happy! Thes Steel's flank began to glow! He'd gotten his cutie mark! He loved it so much.
Years passed, and Steel and Hazel were inseparable. They became a flying duo that would turn heads wherever they went. Steel doing death-defying jawdropping stunts, and Hazel doing some graceful flying to accompany. One day, they each got their letters from Wonderbolt academy! They were both accepted! They worked their tails off in the academy, quickly rising to the top. Steel as lead pony, Hazel, his wingpony. They smashed records and they climbed leaderboards. After they finished at the academy, and while they were waiting to hear if they would get to be Wonderbolts Reservists, Steel wing had gotten a crazy plan to help them train and be the best fliers they could be. He was reckless like that. He told Hazel of a place they could go that had such strong winds most pegasi would never be able to make it. but he was confident they'd be fine. She excitedly joined him to go there to train a bit before they got their results tomorrow. They flew through the cavern, the winds stronger than usual, barely keeping steady. Hazel was beginning to have more and more trouble. "Steel? are you sure we can do this?" she screamed through the wind "Don't worry, Hazel. You and I are tough ponies. We'll make it." he screamed back. Just then, a particularly strong cross breeze blew them both out of balance. Steel used his exceptional flying skill to turn his faltering into a showy moebius followed by a barrel roll and he was steady again. "WOOHOO!" he screamed "That was crazy. Did you see that, Hazel?" There was no response. He looked around, his heart racing, and he saw her. She was struggling against the currents, tumbling and hurling at breakneck speed toward a cliff! "HAZEL!" he turned and flew as fast as his wings could carry him.
He was too late.
later, at the hospital, he paced the hall waiting to hear how she was doing. A doctor came out to say "I'm sorry, sir. We've done everything we can, but... her wounds were too severe. She's gone."
Steel didn't even go back to hear if he'd gotten in the reserves. Even if he got in, there was no way he could do it without Hazel. He cursed himself for his stupid, reckless idea. He wished his friend was still here.
Many years passed, and now Steel lived in Manehattan. He'd grown a lot since that day at the hospital. he learned to stop blaming himself, and move on. He still missed his wingpony, but he was finally able to go on without her. He still didn't know if either of them had gotten into the Wonderbolts Reserves, and honestly, he didn't really mind not knowing. He was happy in his new home. He even had some pretty good friends that he flew with all the time. Nopony as close as he and Hazel had been, but they felt like family. One day, he decided he and his group of friends would make themselves a name for their group. Make it like a club. One of them joked that Steel Wing was kinda thes leader anyway, the way he always played concerned father. Why don't they call their group after him? "Y'know," said another friend "That's actually not a bad idea. I mean, we all follow him, and he's always been the best flier and- hey, don't give me that look, Steel, you know it's true. And i think he'd make a fantastic leader. Even if he doesn't."
"All those in favor of calling ourselves the Steel Wings, and appointing Steel the Leader?"
All his friends emphatically agreed.
"Well," Steel said, chuckling "It looks like I've been out-voted."
They all laughed and had another round of cider.
Years more went by, and most Steel's co-founder friends moved on from the gang life and settled down. Since it's founding, he'd recruited a pretty decent member count. He was getting up there in years, but it didn't stop him from enjoying every minute with his gang. 
One day, he met a little filly who was making it all on her own in the big city. She seemed young to be on her own, but she was tough and there was something about her that he couldn't ignore.
He asked her if she wanted to join the family and live the gang life. She was all too ready.
That's when he knew what drew him to her. She reminded him of Hazel. Her name was Silver Haze.
Yet more years have gone by, and Haze had shown herself a very capable filly... except she was a grown mare, now.
Steel saw all his members like his own children, but Haze was his wingpony, and he hoped, his successor.
Character Personality: A gentle yet stern character who you just know is always stressed about something, but he'd never let on to it. He loves flying with his gang, who he regards more like his own children, more than anything. has loves to watch them grow and bond with each other, and always seems to have a smile on his face. 
Character Summary: As the Founder and current leader of Equestria's toughest pegasus gang, The Steel Wings, Steel Wing is a kind hearted senior pegasus who loves to fly with his gang and watch them grow and bond with each other. He always seems to have a smile on his face, but everypony knows, he will not take anypony's crap. he's usually willing to give ponies the benefit of the doubt, but above all else, he does not appreciate being taken advantage of.
