  1. Roleplay Type: Friendship is Magic CastName: Discord, Lord of ChaosGender: MaleAge: Unknown, most likely as old as the world itself. The first known documentation of him was 1,000 years prior to the events of the Friendship is Magic seriesSpecies: DraconequusEye colour: Yellow eyeballs with red irises and white pupilsCoat: Predominantly brown, though with different colours to correspond to the different creatures that make up his body: Grey head and neck (pony) Brown torso (Eagle) Yellow/tan right arm (Lion) Brown/tan left leg (Goat) Green right leg (Lizard) Red tale (Dragon) Light blue left wing (Pegasus/Bird) Dark blue/black left wing (Bat pony/Bat) Mane/Tail: Black mane on his head but pink plates running down his tail and ending in a white tuftPhysique: Tall and thin, very much like a snake or Chinese dragon. He has four limbs but unlike most Equestrian creatures is bipedal. The level of muscularity varies from limb to limb but is proportionate in size to the creature it is from. He is comprised of at least ten distinct creatures (listed above, in addition to the horns, described hereafter). He has two horns (one from a gazelle and another from a deer) and a single fang. He has two wings but rarely uses them, preferring "snap travel" to any other form of transportation. He can manipulate his own shape, size, outfit, and form at will, which he often does for comedic effect (or to bring together four of Equestria's worst villains).Residence: Chaosville, EquestriaOccupation: Protector of Equestria: After being reformed, Discord is occasionally called in by the Princesses to help assess and neutralise threats to the kingdom. However, he does this only at his own pleasure, cooperating only if/when he wants to. He knows that the magic of friendship is sufficient (and is in many ways more powerful than his own) for the protection of Equestria, and so will more often encourage its use than employ his own. On the side, he is an avid Ogres and Oubliettes player and professional mischief-maker.Cutie Mark: N/A Unique Traits: Discord is the only known draconequus in Equestria. His magic gives him total control of all reality, and should he choose to use its full potential, he could thrust the world into eternal chaos (which he has attempted three times, twice being thwarted by use of the Elements of Harmony and the third time ending of his own free will in order to keep his only friend, Fluttershy). Chaos is a part of him and is actually one of his sustaining features. Without chaos, Discord would fade away out of existence. For this reason, he is often seen in random positions or outfits, usually comedic in nature, regardless of how serious the situation is. History: Discord's origins are unknown, but his first appearance was in Equestria 1,000 years prior to the events of the Friendship is Magic series. During his reign, he transformed Equestria into his personal playground of chaos, inverting gravity, spreading chocolate rain from cotton-candy clouds, changing textures of the world, etc. Only after Celestia and Luna discovered the Elements of Harmony and used them to turn him to stone did his reign end and he was imprisoned in the Canterlot Garden Maze for a millennium. At some point, the powers of chaos within Equestria became strong enough to break the spell binding him (pushed over the edge by a nearby argument between three fillies whose names we will not discuss for personal privacy reasons [it was the Cutie Mark Crusaders]) and he was released to corrupt reality once more. Discord is more interested in the thrill and fun of games than he is in being totally victorious and so he left open a way to defeat him, provided the Mane Six could figure it out. After corrupting them individually against their own natures, he practically cemented his own victory and resumed the storm of chaos that the Elements had halted one thousand years prior. However, Twilight soon learned how to circumvent his tricks and unified her friends once more, then used the Elements to turn him back into stone, ending his reign once and for all. Not long after his second defeat, Celestia ordered the Mane Six to bring him back as she felt he could be a powerful ally. With time, love, and friendship from Fluttershy, Discord soon reformed and proved Celestia right, making himself a powerful ally to the kingdom. It took him a while to warm up to the other ponies, however, and for some time, Fluttershy remained his only friend and sole motivation to do anything in Equestria's favour. He refused to lift a finger to assist when his seeds of chaos planted before his first entombment sprouted and kidnapped the princesses. In fact, his bond with the other ponies was so weak at first that on his first mission, he quickly defected, choosing to side with Lord Tirek in his attempts to overthrow Equestria. This taught him a difficult but meaningful lesson, and he has remained loyal ever since. He often acts selfishly but typically has the best intentions in mind. He has been known to feign disability and injury in order to prove the power of his friends' friendship, and even went so far as to stage a massive, elaborate attack on Canterlot on the day of Twilight's coronation for the sake of boosting her confidence (a plot that backfired terribly on him and the rest of Equestria). Character Personality: Discord is the picture of chaotic good. He acts only if and when he wants to, and is not a fan of work. He is more spontaneous and random that Pinkie Pie herself as it is within his very nature to be so. Though he is loyal to his friends, he tends to act in his own self interests first (unless of course Fluttershy is involved). He shares a powerful bond with Fluttershy that many take for romance, but is in fact simply a very strong friendship (he has already displayed in the series his distaste for and lack of understanding of romance and love). He is optimistic and incapable of not finding humour in any situation. It is in his nature to be as chaotic and comedic as possible. Character Summary: Discord is arguably the most powerful being in Equestria, having control over all reality, but only if he wants to be. He typically only exercises his power to the extent of entertaining himself or benefitting (in however roundabout a way) his friends. Once, he was the most powerful villains Equestria has ever known. Now, he is one of its truest friends. His best friend is Fluttershy. He loves Ogres and Oubliettes and all things chaos. He requires chaos to survive, in fact, having nearly been wiped from existence in an incident in which he tried to behave normally. He is the only being of his type and the only known creature (other than perhaps Tirek) capable of safely harnessing the powers of chaos magic. He loves to be the centre of attention and often does things simply for their comedic impact. In the end, he is a loyal and powerful friend.
  2. Roleplay Type: WoE Cast Name: First Base Sex: Male Age: Young Stallion Species: Earth Pony Eye colour: Dark Teal Coat: Orange Mane/Tail: Dark Teal Physique: Average athletic Residence: Ponyville Occupation: Student at the School of Friendship Cutie Mark: A baseball bat and a baseball Unique Traits: First Base is gifted with good hoof-eye coordination, especially when it pertains to playing sports. First Base has become infatuated with a new sport new to ponies in which you hit a ball with a stick and run around bases to score points. He is really good at starting new projects. He has good ideas and knows how to execute them. Because of how forward thinking he is, he is often one step ahead of others in conversation. As he grew up, his talent has allowed him to have confidence to talk to others, more than average ponies. He is socially attractive. History: First Base grew up in Ponyville and was classmates with the Cutie Mark Crusaders. He was often a follower in the class, echoing the majority rule in the circle of friends. He got his cutie mark one day when teasing a friend. They were playing a friendly game of keep-away. When the ball was thrown towards him, he picked up a tree branch and hit the ball far into the other direction. The friend attempting to get the ball was so playfully furious that he started chasing after him. First Base ran as fast as he could and without looking tripped over a sandbag. His leg was hurt but when he inspected his sprain, he noticed his cutie mark had appeared. When he finished foal academy, his parents decided he should attend the School of Friendship. There, he would attempt to excel at sports and apply himself for the hoofball teams and other athletic activities. He does not have a fillyfriend, but feels he could get one at any time because of his confidence. Character Personality: First Base is an excellent pony to meet on first impression. He is quick to please and has an infectious attitude. He motivates others when he is trying to help them to succeed. When given a task, even one that is non-sport related, he has a knack for getting a good start on what needs to be done. However, he has a hard time finishing things. Where he lacks mostly is long-term motivation and discipline. He can concentrate on a single task for only so long before he loses productivity, loses interest, and attempts to jump start another new venture to his musing. His fleeting attitude in the end game of certain tasks can sometimes be off-putting to others trying to finish what he started. He is very firm in his initial decisions, but can sometimes be fickle in his future contemplation. He has horrible follow-through and is sometimes hard to rely on for projects that last longer than a few days. Character Summary: First Base is a young stallion trying to learn about friendship as he continues to age in the town he was born in. He is easy to make friends with, but is not very good at keeping those friends. He is average intelligence but makes up for his basic mentality with strong determination and motivation that can infect others around him. He can gallop a quick 40 meter dash, but has never completed a running of the leaves. He is attractive for his age, but does not often hold a deep, meaningful conversation very well.

  3. Name: Grubber Sex: Male Age: Older adolescent Species: Hedgehog Eye Color: Opal Coat: Cobalt blue Spines: Light gray, extending from head to tail in a mohawk-like pattern Physique: Quite short in stature compared to the typical Hedgehog his age; also chubby Attire: Sleeveless shirt adorned with a pink cupcake Occupation: Student of Friendship Residence: Ponyville - School of Friendship dormitories History: Despite once serving as the personal assistant to the nefarious Storm King, Grubber would say that all he was is a simple guy with simple desires. As a hoglet raised in a working-class urban family, nothing made Grubber happier than being able to eat a good meal — an extremely rare commodity in the wretched industrial cities of the Stormlands. But one day, the young boy saw a recruitment ad for the Storm King’s Armada... and it promised excellent rations to all who enlisted! Grubber didn’t even think twice about signing up. Despite being little more than a runt compared to the Armada’s elite Yeti warriors, Grubber was put to good use as an airship cabin boy. Sure, military rations were indeed a step above the glurk the hoglet used to settle for, but what really delighted him was the chance to plunder the mouth-watering cuisines of other lands all for himself! In time, Grubber’s lack of ambition beyond filling up his stomach caught the attention of the Storm King himself. Suspicious of those driven to climb up the ladder (and potentially dethrone him), the satyr tyrant saw in Grubber a simpleton lackey who’d never dream of betraying him. And would you believe it, the King made Grubber his assistant! Grubber would end up paired with the Storm King’s top lieutenant, Commander Tempest Shadow. The hedgehog’s official assignment was to lend assistance to Commander Shadow and obey all her commands. The Storm King also prompted Grubber to debrief him on Tempest’s field performance and everything she said, but the King encouraged the hedgehog to keep those chats their little secret. At least, that’s how the runt explained things to Tempest in one of the many times he failed to think before speaking. Although not the most competent aide-de-camp, Grubber served faithfully right up until the Storm King’s defeat at the hooves of Princess Twilight Sparkle and a face-turned Tempest Shadow. For his part, Grubber didn’t mourn this turn of events. Sure, the King who had believed in him was gone and he was stuck in a foreign kingdom with little hope of making it home again... but at least he was stuck in the land that made the best food yet! And hey; maybe there’s something to this whole Friendship thing as well. With the begrudging approval of his ex-commander, Grubber is now a student at the Ponyville School of Friendship. Of course, whether the lazy hedgehog is able to put the hard work into studying remains to be seen..... Character Personality: To put it simply, Grubber can be quite a brat. Smart-mouthed and obnoxious at times, the hedgehog believes himself to be funnier than he actually is. Furthermore, his work ethic and ability to take things seriously leaves much to be desired. It is, in fact, a rather fair observation to make that Grubber’s only real passion is for food, which he will devour with glee upon sight. Sweets are a particularly favorite delicacy of his. Yet for all of Grubber’s immaturity, he can also be quite cunning when he wants to be. Unusually for a creature from the Stormlands, this hedgehog is also easy-going around anyone he meets. Nothing ever seems to get Grubber’s spirits down, and he’d always make at least one attempt to raise the spirits of those around him if they’re feeling down in the dumps. Character Summary: Grubber may have once been part of the bad guys, but her never truly had the heart of one. The runt still has much to learn about what it means to be a good friend, but if he works hard, Grubber can achieve anything his heart desires! .....Assuming he ever wants anything more than endless desserts, that is.
  4. Name: Sunset Shimmer Sex: Female Age: Young mare Species: Unicorn Eye Color: Cyan Coat: Ember Mane/Tail: Long flowing red hair, with curvy yellow highlights Physique: Typical of a mare her age Occupation: Guest speaker & substitute teacher at the Ponyville School of Friendship Residence: Whenever visiting Ponyville on business, she always stays at Twilight’s Castle Cutie Mark: Sunset’s cutie mark is a sun with curvy rays. The rays on one side are pale yellow colored, while those to the other are dark red. In the center of the sun are shapes reminiscent of a yin-yang symbol, also featuring the contrasting yellow-red color scheme. Unique Traits: Although technically a drop-out alumnus of the School for Gifted Unicorns, the accelerated rate at which Sunset Shimmer blazed through her classes (and various other “extracurricular studies”) long ago gives her a spellcasting repertoire equivalent to that of a typical summa cum laude graduate. Alongside Sunset’s relatively well-rounded magical skill set is a natural aptitude for fire spells... as one might expect of a unicorn with a fiery appearance and a sunny cutie mark. Back in her earlier troubled years, Sunset Shimmer discovered for herself how emotions could be drawn upon to further enhance a unicorn’s power. Filled with overwhelming feelings of pride and resentment, Celestia’s then-pupil readily channeled her anger and will to dominate to give herself power that exceeded those of nearly all her contemporaries. Not helping matters was Sunset’s brief flirtation with the learning of forbidden black magic. Although the unicorn didn’t get too far in her illicit studies before getting caught by her mentor, she learned enough to gain a rudimentary knowledge of the dark arts. Yet given Sunset’s desire to atone for her past mistakes, she vows never again to willfully wield negative emotions as weapons. How her resolve holds in the face of great emotional distress, however, remains to be seriously tested..... A curious recent development for Sunset Shimmer is the acquisition of advanced empathic abilities. These powers actually first manifested as a result of her adventures in the so-called “Mirror World”, after having come across rogue elemental magic that escaped from Equestria. If she wills it, Sunset can “touch” another creature with her magic in order to perceive their thoughts and memories. While using her empathy magic, the unicorn’s eyes glow with an unearthly white light. Foalhood: The tale of Sunset Shimmer is a tale of Villainy versus Redemption; of bondage to the past and the power to rise from one’s own ashes. It all began in the quaint town of Hope Hollow, a once idyllic community located “at the end of the rainbow.” But by the time Sunset was born, what had once been a popular weekend getaway for city ponies was beginning to fade into obscurity, and in the process falling into economic — and quite literal — depression. As ponies grew more hopeless, bonds between neighbors and families started withering away like flowers deprived of nurturing sunlight. So thus it was that in her first years of life, Sunset Shimmer knew nothing of love or friendship. Whenever her parents weren’t busy sniping at one another, they were taking out all their frustrations at their daughter. As for cordial playmates... well, such a concept was simply unheard of that day and age! Few foals ever congregated in Hope Hollow without getting into bickering matches or bullying one another. Little Miss Shimmer escaped all that by spending as much free time as she could in the local library; by then, nearly all townsponies avoided communal spaces like the plague. While piles upon piles of books were absolutely no substitute for the instinctive equine need to be loved and part of a herd, they did provide Sunset with the gateway she believed would lead her to the acceptance she desperately craved. In particular, the library’s unusually large Magic section (even divided into Arcane, Elemental, and Theory Of subsections!)..... Reading about amazing spells and great conjurers of old filled Sunset Shimmer with inspiration, igniting the fires of passion and ambition within her heart. Refusing to succumb to the scourge of despair, the young unicorn naively dreamed of a future where she’d shake the dust of her crummy old hometown off her hooves. First she would go to school in Canterlot to see what they knew, and then it would be off the see the world! She’d tour the castles of Kastrot and explore the arctic wastelands in search of the mythical Crystal Empire, fight magical beasts in the Everfree Forest, and write spells a volume long and forge a dozen- no, a HUNDRED enchanted relics!!! Sunset was going to be the greatest unicorn spellcaster since Starswirl the Bearded, and be praised and beloved by every single pony in Equestria!!!!! Naturally, Sunset Shimmer’s parents derided these lofty dreams as nothing more than foalish nonsense, but the filly had long since stopped giving a hoot about what they thought (at least, that’s what she told herself anyway). With the educational resources at her disposal, Sunset plunged head-first into the world of magic, starting first by learning how to conjure fire. Obviously, self-learning was no substitute for a proper education at an EEA-accredited institution, but Sunset couldn’t care less! So what if a few things accidentally caught on fire while taking the first steps on her journey? The fiery filly was making her dreams come true!!! It may not have been much of a surprise then that Sunset Shimmer’s first public debut of her talents to a crowd of jeering schoolkids ended rather controversially. Lacking the know-how to properly control her powers... and by subconsciously channeling her will to succeed at all costs, little Sunset’s clumsy attempt to magically create a fake sun out of flames left the manes of many a foal burned that day. But hey, that hovering sphere of fire actually turned out wondrously when all was said and done... and those neighsaying kids were jerks to her anyway. In that moment, Sunset Shimmer demonstrated the internal strife fueling her determination... and that in spite of everything she went through, an inextinguishable light burned brightly deep inside her heart. And so, Sunset was awarded with her cutie mark. Almost immediately afterward, the unicorn filly left Hope Hollow behind and never looked back. Judging by how she never heard or read of any news from that place since, Sunset simply assumed that crummy old town was finally abandoned and left to rot. Not once did she ever bother inquiring about the state of her former home or her family; those were all in the unicorn’s past... and her past was no longer today..... Under Princess Celestia’s Tutelage: If Sunset Shimmer’s first performance as a spellcaster could be described as a rocky rehearsal, then her entrance exam into Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns was an epically disastrous opening night. Reflexively channeling her feelings of extreme frustration, Sunset resorted to blasting the dragon egg she had been encouraged to try hatching. It might have actually worked too if the filly could have better controlled her powers. Instead, all Miss Shimmer accomplished was exhausting all her magical strength... and trapping herself in an inferno in the process! Had it not been for the timely intervention of Princess Celestia, things could have ended up a lot worse. Recognizing that Sunset Shimmer possessed powerful magic that she didn’t know how to handle, Celestia offered to take the filly on as a personal student so that she could learn to safely harness her abilities and use them to help her fellow Equestrians. Having believed just moments before that her dreams had forever shattered into pieces, this was understandably quite the turn of events for little Sunset. Needless to say, the young unicorn wasted hardly any time in hugging her new mentor out of gratitude. Sunset Shimmer turned out to be quite the fast learner of Magic… maybe too fast. Still embittered from her early foalhood experiences, the new royal apprentice continued to focus on studying to the exclusion of nearly everything else, Friendship most of all. That turned into a grave concern for Princess Celestia, who had come to believe that Sunset was destined to play an important role in forestalling the inevitable return of Nightmare Moon. Celestia knew full well that only those with Friendship in their hearts could wield the Elements of Harmony. Accordingly, the alicorn expected — perhaps unfairly in retrospect — that Sunset spend more of her time bonding with her fellow schoolponies. But Miss Shimmer failed to grasp the vital importance of making friends... nor did she even know how to make friends to begin with! All Sunset heard was a nagging mentor being a nag for its own sake. While Celestia may have been the most knowledgeable magic practitioner known to ponykind... her attempts at guiding Sunset towards Friendship proved woefully inadequate. This would bite Celestia in the flank a few years down the line, after Sunset started suspecting that she was being held back in her studies due to her mentor’s apparently nonsensical whims. Everything came to a head on one fateful night, when Princess Celestia caught her disgruntled student illicitly reading a forbidden tome on dark magic. During the insuring confrontation, Sunset Shimmer tearfully accused Celestia of having no faith in her student; the faithful student who only ever wanted to make her mentor proud. But when Celestia responded that declaring Sunset would have to be put on probation for her actions, the fiery pupil finally snapped. Cruelly mocking Celestia as a worthless hypocrite with no real friends of her own, Sunset betrayed and abandoned the mentor she had once loved as a daughter. Employing an enchanted mirror she stumbled upon earlier during her extracurricular studies, the unicorn fled Equestria altogether. Rising From the Ashes: As if living in self-imposed exile in the bizarre Mirror World wasn’t traumatic enough for Sunset Shimmer, the fact that she was now incapable of using Magic at all was nothing less than the ultimate insult. Magic meant everything to Sunset; without it, she was nothing. With her lifelong dreams utterly crushed, Sunset’s heart blackened and became filled with hate and rage. If she could not prove herself a girl worthy of praise, then she would prove herself a villain and hate the idle pleasures of those days. Plots did Sunset lay in her adoptive community, setting friend and clique alike against each other. Through manipulation and intimidation, the Unfaithful Student rose to a position of unquestioned prominence amongst her peers... though of course, petty social standing was absolutely no substitute for the Power of Magic. Swiftly consumed by megalomania, Sunset covertly returned to Equestria in order to steal the Element of Magic and exploit it in the Mirror World. However, as irony would have it, her diabolical plans were thwarted by the girl who took Sunset’s place as Celestia’s Faithful Student: Twilight Sparkle. Yet again in her life, Sunset Shimmer hit rock bottom... only for Twilight to unexpectedly offer the very foe she opposed mere moments before the opportunity to not only accept her Friendship, but to study it under her tutelage. Sunset was overwhelmed; all her life, she was led to believe that only by mastering Magic would anypony ever provide her with the acceptance she’d desperately craved since birth. But to be offered Friendship unconditionally, with no ill will and complete acceptance of who she was? ........................... .....Frankly, it was all that Sunset Shimmer ever really wanted in the first place. To this day, Sunset Shimmer deeply cherishes the pony who currently reigns as Princess of Friendship. With the additional help of a band of special companions from the Mirror World, the former villain has managed not just to turn her life around, but to transform into a genuine inspirational figure in her own right. While Sunset considers it her primary responsibility to keep tabs on Equestrian magic and exiles which escape into the Mirror World, more and more she finds herself returning to her homeland for both business reasons and for fun. And if the Headmare of the Ponyville School of Friendship gets her way, those trips of Sunset’s may become even more frequent..... Character Personality: The Sunset Shimmer of today barely resembles her past self. Kindled by the fire of friendship instead of personal ambition, Sunset is an outgoing individual, community-minded and always happy to lend support when needed. Additionally, Sunset nowadays appreciates the joys of recreational hobbies, art being chiefest among them. Although she presents herself as a cool laid-back girl, Miss Shimmer in reality possess a sharp analytical mind that many wouldn’t suppose at first glance; a lasting legacy of her time as an aspiring sorceress and Celestia’s prized pupil. Whilst undoubtedly Sunset Summer’s demonstrated her reformed nature many times over, other lingering elements of her prior life remain under the surface. For one thing, she hates losing; absolutely HATES IT! If placed under enormous stress, Sunset is also prone to lashing out in anger at others around her, although her temper usually subsides rather quickly. Oh, and if someone ever dares threaten one of Sunset’s friends, it will take a herculean effort on her part to avoid giving into the temptation to end them right there and then. Sunset Summer’s greatest fear is that one day, she’ll end up failing her dearest companions when they need her the most. Likewise, the Redeemed Student hopes that in the far future when all is said and done, she would have lived a good life, becoming someone earnestly worthy of love..... Character Summary: Sunset Shimmer understands that within her — along with the potential to cause great harm to others — is the power to lift them up with the light of friendship. But rather than dwell on her past mistakes, Sunset recognizes that everyone on some level can face the internal battles she once suffered through. If anybody is capable of both great evil and great good, then shouldn’t they be treated like they’re worth giving a chance?
  5. Roleplay Type: WoE Name: Luna Sex: Mare Age: Over a thousand years old. Species: Alicorn Eye colour: Teal Coat: A deep, slightly desaturated blue Mane/Tail: A brighter blue that's flecked with stars. Physique: Slim, athletic, head and shoulders taller than most ponies. Residence: Canterlot Occupation: A princess and one half of the diarch that rules Equestria Cutie Mark: A white, crescent moon Unique Traits: A large black, spotty blotch on her hindquarters. Her mane is airy and seems to flutter and float with every little movement; it flows freely when she wishes to display power. She has partial immortality- long lived, but not invincible. Skills Dreamwalking: During a time when she was still imprisoned in the moon as Nightmare Moon, Luna discovered that she could still influence ponies in Equestria through entering dreams and sowed nightmares. Now, she chooses to make up for it by helping ponies confront their fears, and helping them deal with their problems so they will no longer have recurring dreams. Magic: As one of Starswirl's students, Princess Luna has a skill and understanding in magic, especially of the more dark variety to the point she created something called a Tantabus, and she is capable of dreamwalking, something nopony else is capable of, much less has the power to do. Weaknesses New Moons: Princess Luna is closely connected to the moon. She is strongest during full moons, but new moons leave her weaker when the moon is eclipsed by the planet. History: Character Personality: After all the time she'd lost to being imprisoned in the moon, Luna's manner of speech and views are more old fashioned, although this is slowly changing the more she adapts to the modern day. While she may not share her sister's playful sense of humor, she is known to fall back on her more prankish nature from time to time when the opportunity presents itself, although her duty as princess and her experiences have prevented it. Luna works towards her improving her social skills with ponies of the modern day, and while she is occasionally still shy and uncertain when she is among ponies, she is becoming more comfortable as she settles back into her role as one of the diarchs of Equestria and keeps a calm facade amidst troubled times. Luna still struggles with her guilt over what she's done, and it often weighs heavily upon her shoulders. She feels she must make up for it somehow, and she has found that she can do so through dreamwalking- helping ponies deal with their nightmares and facing what troubles them most. Her kindness and willingness to help are most often expressed through her dreamwalking, and on occasion in person as well, when she sees that somepony is in need of help or a guiding hoof to steer them right. Her way of helping them avoid what she had become. The Element of Honesty shows most strongly in her- Luna never shies from speaking her mind or telling a pony the truth. She feels lies do more harm than good and she is adamant that she never be lied to. Character Summary: One of the diarchs of Equestria, Luna shares her sister's burden of ruling their kingdom and is the opposite to Celestia in many ways; quite literally the night to her day. She is the one responsible for raising the moon and beginning the night, and has also taken on the task of protecting the dreams of ponies to make up for once causing nightmares during her long imprisonment in the moon; the only way she could still influence Equestria. She has slowly regained her power and she's still adapting to the many changes the modern day has brought with it while struggling with her guilt. She is slowly getting better, and she has become much more comfortable in her role as one of Equestria's princesses, although she does not speak much in public unless it is necessary for an event.
  6. Roleplay Type: WoE Name: Sombra Sex: Male Age: Adult Species: Umbrum; visibly a unicorn Eye colour: Red Coat: A plain grey Mane/Tail: A long, wavy black mane often kept swept back from his face. His tail is kept short, but has the same wavy quality as his hair. The only noticeable facial hair he keeps are sideburns- all kept well groomed if he is able. Physique: Sombra stands at a height that allows him to tower head and shoulders over most ponies, and his tall stature is matched by a physically fit appearance- what can best be described as buff. Somewhat barrel-chested and athletically toned, without the awkwardness of overly defined musculature; sturdy in appearance. Residence: Previously the Crystal Empire. Currently nowhere. Occupation: While he currently holds no job, Sombra spends his time traveling and it is mostly in search of new knowledge, to see how much the world has changed since he'd been gone, and to see Equestria with his own eyes at last. Being a foreigner, he has a lot to discover about the modern day. Cutie Mark: None Unique Traits: Red eyes with cat like pupils, a curved horn, and visibly sharp teeth. Seems to be able to morph into shadow, but never in the light of the sun. Skills Dark Magic: The only brand of magic Sombra is capable of using. Its source is rage, and Sombra employs offensively or defensively when it's required of him. It is most often used in doing one of the things he is best at, casting curses, as well as creating traps that target a pony's greatest fear. Along with that, he can make doors open up onto small rooms or serve as a portal to another spot, so long as it's in the same area or building. Crystals: Perhaps an addition to what he can do with dark magic, Sombra can make strange, black crystals grow from the ground. Spread by his corrupting influence, or used defensively as a barrier between himself and others. Fear: Capable of feeding off of the fear and despair of ponies the way changelings feed off of love. Weaknesses 'Light' Magic: Any magic considered to be pure, such as the Elements of Harmony, and the crystal ponies' combined magic through the Heart. The two sisters' magic is equally as capable of hurting him more than the standard unicorn's. Love Magic: As an opposite for what he seems to stand for as an embodiment of hate, the love magic that is used by Princess Cadance and her possible ancestor, Princess Amore, can do the worst damage to him. The light and love channeled through the Crystal Heart is enough to destroy him. Other: Sombra cannot swim, and his own arrogance is enough to be his undoing. History: Originally found by the crystal guard outside of the Crystal Empire, a young grey colt was brought to the city's orphanage, run by a mare named Chestnut Falls. With no knowledge of pony language, the only word he knew or was capable of speaking later became his name, Sombra. He had no knowledge of any parents or where he came from, and so the orphanage took him in. It is there that he learned how to read and write, with some difficulty, and described learning to speak the pony tongue 'like chewing peanut brittle'. His broken speech and dull, dark coloration earned him the mockery from his fellow orphans, as he was the only non-crystal pony in the city. Out of all of them, the only one he found a friend in was a fellow outcast by the name of Radiant Hope, a kind and imaginative filly. It is she who he would grow up with as close friends, and together tried to find their cutiemarks; a task that they never seemed successful in. Sombra would first learn a hint of what is to come when he and Radiant Hope visit the Crystal Heart a time before their first Crystal Faire, remembering what they'd been taught about the Heart showing them a glimpse of their futures. While Hope saw herself as a princess, Sombra would only see a shadow with glowing eyes that would haunt him for the rest of his life. It is here, too, that he would meet Princess Amore. When asked of what he saw, Sombra lied and claimed he saw 'nothing, only darkness' and he would feel guilt about lying to the princess. When the Crystal Faire came, the magic of the Faire kept Sombra bedridden by the pain. Nopony could figure out what was wrong, and the pain was gone by the time the Faire was over. Hope would always be by his side no matter how badly they both wished to see the Crystal Faire, and this would continue for every Crystal Faire after. There came a time in their early adulthood that that magic would nearly shatter Sombra, but Hope used her magic in desperation to prevent this. In doing so, she finally gained her cutiemark in healing. The development of such magic earned Hope a chance to study under the princesses, and it was both what she gained and this offer that would drive Sombra to flee in hopes that he would find his own destiny as she had. It drove him out into the frozen wastes surrounding the empire, where he would encounter a strange red crystal that spoke to him, naming itself his mother. She revealed him what he was, and that he was forced into the form of a unicorn in order to allow his escape. She unlocked his dark power and bid him to find the door to the prison and free them all. Driven by this purpose, Sombra returned to the Crystal Empire that night to steal the Crystal Heart. Princess Amore confronted him, and Sombra discovered then that she knew exactly what he was and kept that information in hopes that he would make the right choice, to choose not to be like 'those monsters.' Both her insult and the information she'd knowingly withheld angered him to the point that he lashed out against Amore, turning her to black crystal and shattering the statue. Hope, witnessing this, attempted to reason with him and fled when she could not. Sombra covered up the hurt caused by her parting words and gladly accepted the title of king of monsters, disowning Hope as a friend with unspoken regret. Sombra went on to do what he was known for: enslaving the Crystal Empire's citizens and forcing them to dig, all in order to find the door to the umbrums' prison buried deep beneath the city. It was only a matter of time before the princesses arrived to banish him beneath the ice for a thousand years. His last act of defiance was ensuring the empire disappeared along with him in a curse he cast. A thousand years spent in an icy void would take its toll on the king when he returned disoriented, desperate to regain his throne. It was this desperation and fury that drove him to act so recklessly. He would find his second defeat at the hooves of Twilight Sparkle and her friends, and the new crystal princess, Princess Cadance. The magic of the Crystal Heart would shatter him at last, freeing the crystal ponies of him once and for all. It would only be a few years later that he would rise again, his body reformed but temporarily weakened by the toll the Heart's magic took on him. With nothing but his cape left intact and his mind clear again, Sombra left the Frozen North behind to venture south. Character Personality: Sombra has a passion for knowledge and uses his intelligence to his advantage to manipulate, scheme and prepare against possibilities. His greed and a rage born of lifelong bitterness once drove him to achieve his goals by any means necessary; though his defeats have tempered this, he still holds a belief that he deserves something in life. He is also gruff, self-conscious, and uncertain about his identity, calling himself 'the king of monsters' because of how many times those he once trusted flung the word monster at him. He believes it to be the truth of what he is, not only because of how others choose to see him, but because of what he'd glimpsed in the Crystal Heart. A vision of his future and his destiny, he did not believe that he could choose a different path. Sombra is outwardly confident to the point of arrogance and does not shy from interacting with ponies if he absolutely must. Those who meet him may describe him as rude and rather grumpy. Some of his overall personality and actions are a coverup for how he truly feels- self-conscious, alone, and lost without his intended purpose in the Empire. He is fiercely protective of his true emotions and has a difficulty opening up or trusting others because of his past. His treatment at the hooves of others leads him to believe he is justified for what he has done to the crystal ponies and he refuses to acknowledge that he is wrong for it. He is equally unafraid of lying and being dishonest when it suits him. Notable guilty pleasures, that anypony could notice if they pay close enough attention, is that he has a hidden love for stories and will gladly sit attentively during any that are told, and he adores having his mane stroked or petted to the point that he'll go still and relax whenever anypony touches it. Character Summary: King Sombra was once the tyrant of the Crystal Empire that he enslaved, ousted from his throne twice by the actions and decisions of the princesses and their allies. Once controlling and power hungry, he remains a deeply flawed individual who allowed others of his kind use him to fulfill a purpose, and he hasn't yet learned the importance of choices. Without a way to follow what he believes to be his destiny, he feels he has lost his purpose and chose to travel south into Equestria, giving up on a place that has once been a home and a bane on his life. He mostly intends to lie low and see what has changed in the time he'd been gone. Most of it is based on what was seen in the show and comics with my own interpretations, additions, and development.
  7. Name: King Sombra. Gender: Male Age: Adult Species: Umbrum; 'shadow pony' Eye colour: Red irises Character colour: A plain, markless grey Mane/Tail/Other: A long, wavy black mane often kept swept back from his face. His tail is kept short, but has the same wavy quality as his hair. The only noticeable facial hair he keeps are well groomed sideburns. Physique: Sombra stands at a height that rivals Princess Luna's, and his tall stature is matched by a physically fit appearance- what can best be described as buff. Somewhat barrel-chested and athletically toned, without the awkwardness of overly defined musculature; sturdy in appearance. Residence: None currently; he travels frequently Occupation: Learning about the modern day and all the changes that'd been made over the millennium he'd been gone, including new magic. Being a foreigner to Equestria as a whole, he has a lot to discover. Learning, specifically, is a passion of his. Cutie Mark: None Unique Traits: Sombra is particularly skilled in dark magic and has an affinity for curses, as well as the creation of strange black crystals. Dark magic is the only magic he is ever seen using, and its corrupting influence does not affect him. Certain aspects of his appearance also make it clear that he isn't quite a pony, such as the cat-like pupils he has, sharp teeth, and curved horn. As an umbrum, he feeds off of fear and despair and is capable of sensing the former in ponies. He technically doesn't have to sleep or physically eat. Weaknesses: Any light magic, love magic wielded by Princess Amore and her descendant, Cadance. Sometimes his own arrogance. Long periods of no sleep or food is a detriment to how well he can function. Cannot swim. Cannot stay a shadow in the light long. History: Originally found by the crystal guard outside of the Crystal Empire, a young grey colt was brought to the city's orphanage, run by a mare named Chestnut Falls. With no knowledge of pony language, the only word he knew or was capable of speaking later became his name, Sombra. He had no knowledge of any parents or where he came from, and so the orphanage took him in.

Out of all of them, the only one he found a friend in was a fellow outcast by the name of Radiant Hope, a kind and imaginative filly. It is she who he would grow up with as close friends. Sombra would first learn a hint of what is to come when he and Radiant Hope visit the Crystal Heart a time before their first Crystal Faire, remembering what they'd been taught about the Heart showing them a glimpse of their futures. While Hope saw herself as a princess, Sombra would only see a shadowy, monstrous version of himself that would haunt him for the rest of his life. It is here, too, that he would meet Princess Amore. When asked of what he saw, Sombra lied and claimed he saw 'nothing, only darkness' and he would feel guilt later about lying to the princess. When the Crystal Faire came, the magic of the Faire kept Sombra bedridden by the debilitating pain. Nopony could figure out what was wrong, and the pain was gone by the time the Faire was over. Hope would always be by his side no matter how badly they both wished to see the Crystal Faire, and this would continue for every Crystal Faire after. There came a time in their early adulthood that that magic would nearly shatter Sombra, but Hope used her magic in desperation to prevent this. In doing so, she finally gained her cutiemark in healing- cutiemarks were something they had always tried to gain, and never were successful with finding. The development of such magic earned Hope a chance to study under the princesses, and it was both what she gained and this offer that would drive Sombra to flee in hopes that he would find his own destiny as she had. It drove him out into the Frozen Wastes surrounding the empire, where he would encounter a strange red crystal that spoke to him, naming itself his mother and revealing the truth of what he was, as well as unlocking his dark magic. Driven by this newfound knowledge and power, Sombra returned to the Crystal Empire that night to steal the Crystal Heart. Princess Amore would confront him, and Sombra would discover then that she knew exactly what he was and kept that information in hopes that he would make the right choice, to choose not to be like 'those monsters.' It angered Sombra to know she'd known all along, and let him suffer, and the hurt of being called a monster would only fuel that fire. Sombra used his newfound magic to turn Amore into a statue of black crystal, and shattered her before the newly arrived Hope could restore her. Shocked by his behavior, Hope would flee, calling him the same as what Amore had- it would be then that Sombra would spitefully welcome the title to cover up how he felt, and disowned Hope as his friend, seeing her as a traitor. Sombra went on to do what he was known for: enslaving the Crystal Empire's citizens and forcing them to dig, all in order to find the door to the umbrums' prison buried deep beneath the city. It was only a matter of time before the princesses arrived to fight and banish him beneath the ice for a thousand years, in which he would ensure the empire disappeared along with him in a curse he cast. A thousand years spent in an icy void would take its toll on the king when he returned, disoriented, desperate to regain his throne and driven by this desperation and his fury to the point he acted recklessly.

It would only be a few years later that he would rise again, his body reformed but temporarily weakened by the toll the Heart's magic took on him. With nothing but his cape left intact and his mind clear again, Sombra left the Frozen North behind to venture south. Character Personality: Sombra is sadistic, greedy and prideful with an untempered rage and a willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve his goals, which takes a manipulative, intelligent mind to come up with such plans and strategies as he has employed; he is a creature that never stops scheming. He is also gruff, self-conscious, and uncertain about his identity, calling himself 'the king of monsters' because of how many times those he once trusted flung the word monster at him. He believes it to be the truth of what he is, not only because of how others choose to see him, but because of what he'd glimpsed in the Crystal Heart. A vision of his future, he did not believe that he could choose a different path. Sombra is outwardly confident to the point of arrogance and does not shy from interacting with ponies if he absolutely must, but he would otherwise keep his distance both physically and emotionally. Those who meet him may describe him as rude and rather grumpy. Some of his overall personality and actions are a coverup for how he truly feels- self-conscious, alone, and lost without his intended purpose in the Empire. He is fiercely protective of his true emotions and has a difficulty opening up or trusting others because of his past.

Notable guilty pleasures, that anypony could notice if they pay close enough attention, is that he has a hidden love for stories and will gladly sit attentively during any that are told, and he adores having his mane stroked or petted to the point that he'll go still and relax whenever anypony touches it. Character Summary: King Sombra was once the tyrant of the Crystal Empire that he enslaved, ousted from his throne twice by the actions and decisions of the princesses and their allies. Once controlling, greedy, prideful and power hungry; a deeply flawed individual who hadn't yet learned the importance of choices and allowed others of his kind use him to fulfill a purpose. Primarily now acts on his own needs and for his own goals. Can you tell I really like Sombra? I could probably go on for days but I'll leave it as is. Most of it is based on the show and comics with my own interpretations, additions, and development. Please don't be afraid to ask to rp with him! I try to keep his general grumpiness and angst low-key for rp enjoyment.
  8. Sunset Shimmer There are other worlds out there, just waiting to be explored... Name: Professor Sunset Shimmer Sex: Female Age: Mare Species: Unicorn Body Color: Golden yellow, the color of the midday sun. Mane/Tail Color and Style: Fiery orange-red, with a single yellow streak Eye Color: Cyan Physique: Average for a mare of her age and profession, though she does her best to keep fit because adventure is demanding! Residence: Canterlot Occupation: Adjunct Professor of Aetherology at Canterlot University, specializing in planar travel and multiversal navigation. Theoretical, of course. Part-time adventurer. Cutie Mark: A fiery sun with its disc marked by interlocked orange-red and yellow swirls in the approximate shape of a yin yang. Unique Traits Walking Arcane Encyclopedia. What Sunset lacks in raw magical strength she makes up for in quick thinking and such a comprehensive, internalized well of arcane knowledge that she can virtually craft any spell in her head and execute them with surgical precision, aimed at just the right spot for maximal impact. Education Nonpareil. Having grown up in Canterlot to enthusiastic parents and in a climate that demanded academic excellence, Sunset Shimmer is a peerless intellectual. While her primary focus is in planar travel, she has spread her net wide and caught knowledge of many things. If there is anything that could potentially be an academic field, Sunset probably knows of it, or has at least heard of it, even if she is not an expert or direct practitioner. Portal Specialist and Planar Theorist. Sunset’s expertise is in portals and planar travel. Not so much instant teleports, but deploying precise portal entres and exits for traversing hazardous terrain during adventuring or simply getting from one place to another. She is also an expert in deploying and maintaining teleportation circles and assessing artifacts that facilitate teleportation. Daydream Shimmer. Rumors abound that Sunset conceals the true magnitude of her abilities. Such hearsay is dismissed as the idle daydreams of her students. As the good professor herself would say, “I would prefer not delve into the bottomless abyss that is my students’ fantasies of me.” Character History Personality Since the portal incident, Sunset has softened her image, though she is still well known for her sarcasm even in research circles. She can always be counted upon to respond to dangerous situations or unexpected lab results with an exasperated eye roll or wry quip. She is unflappable under extreme stress and level-headed in the face of danger. Despite the mask of the jaded, hard-boiled researcher she wears, Sunset has a soft spot for those who genuinely put forth effort but still struggle. Building her academic career from the ground up when challenged by both her peers and titans of her field before her was no easy task; indeed it was overwhelming at times. She is willing to sit down with students who need a bit of extra help. She has little tolerance for troublemakers and this is perhaps where she gets her frosty reputation. Sunset sees her teaching job as penance for her terrible treatment of her classmates in her youth. But even with most of her time devoted to teaching, a fire for hands on experimentation, research, and adventure still burns within her, the same drive that led her both to her calling and her fall. Given the opportunity, it is conceivable that she might be lured out of her lab and back into adventuring in the wide world of Equestria!
  9. Roleplay Type: WoE Name: Lightning Dust Sex: Female Age: 23 Species: Pegasus Eye colour: Amber/Yellow Coat: Light Turqoise Mane/Tail: Light and Dark Yellow Physique: Athletic Residence: Varies Occupation: Courier Cutie Mark: A Lightning Bolt and three stars Unique Traits: Fast, arguably as fast as a certain element of harmony. (Although Dust is the only who would argue that... ), skilled in flight and weather manipulation. History: Born the 2nd foal, and daughter of a wealthy Las Pegasus couple, Lightning Dust grew up in the lap of luxury, and one of boredom. With every whim catered to she soon grew restless. Spoiled and bratty, the filly would often act as the bully of the playground. Once her father made her aware of their families lineage, supposedly descended from Pegasopolis itself, Lightning Dust would strive to be worthy of that lineage, much to her fathers annoyance. He had hoped his daughter would guide her further into a role within the nobility, with the end goal of her possibly marrying into a Canterlot home. Instead Lightning Dust took a more militaristic approach. Training herself, and gaining an appreciation for the Wonderbolts, the filly became a speed demon. Coupled with her win at all costs attitude, she was a terror in the Las pegasus racing scene. This attitude was only reinforced by talk with a Wonderbolt recruiter that stated the Bolts only accepted the best of the best, and her attitude was a good thing. It was in these races that Dust gained her cutiemark. One afternoon, during an official event that saw many young ponies in the city partake in many events emphasizing pegasi prowess, the planned finale for a race around the city was cancelled. Due to a scheduling error a thunderstorm had drifted in and the organizers did not wish to risk the safety of many of the colts and fillies that would fly in the event. Undaunted, Lightning Dust seeked out some of the competitors she knew would give her a challenge and convinced them to race her regardless. Sneaking out onto the course the dozen young ponies took off, eager to beat one another and capture some fame as daredevils. Needless to say the adults were not pleased, doing their best to try and stop the race or knock out the thunderclouds that might potential harm the children. The race itself was no easy thing, lightning bolts, high winds, low visibility and rain, within the first few minutes half the competitors were forced to take cover and give up. The fight for first place was a tough fight however, with Lightning Dust struggling to keep up with a pair of colts who already had their cutie marks. Finally during the final leg of the race Dust saw her chance in the form of a rogue storm cloud that was lashing out with lightning at random that had drifted directly into the middle of the track. Unwilling to take the chance of being zapped the two colts tried to fly around it, but not Dust. The filly braced herself and dove straight on through, ignoring the danger such an act posed in favor of having a shortcut. And indeed she succeeded. Dust herself claims she was struck by a lightning bolt that gave her a boost needed to finish the race well ahead of the other two ponies. Indeed onlookers saw the filly emerge faster than before, with her now trademark contrail behind her. Upon winning the slightly charred filly was surprised to find her cutie mark had appeared, making the following few hours a bittersweet thing as she celebrated finding her true calling, and being punished by her parents for trying something so reckless and stupid. Lightning Dust was schooled in a private academy, but never had great success, with her grades being a common source of friction with her parents and her eventually dropping out to further her career in the local racing scene, and working part time with the local weather team. Eventually her fame would garner success and she was invited to attend the Wonderbolt Academy. Thrilled that she had the chance to take her fame to a national level the mare left home without even telling her parents. The tale of what happened there is well known to many. Arriving at the academy Dust was wholly unimpressed. Almost all the pegasi there couldn't hold a candle to her speed and skill, all except one. Rainbow Dash. Now, Lightning Dust was not a smart mare, nor one who kept up to date in the news. She didn't know that Dash was a savior of Equestria, nor did she really care. The chromatic mare was fast, she was skilled, and her attitude mirrored Dusts in many ways (As far as she noticed). With the encouragement of Spitfire, Lightning Dust figured she was guaranteed to eventually join the Bolts, and Rainbow Dash would join her. Becoming fast friends the pair were a fearsome duo. Not once did Dust ever consider her actions that hurt the other trainees at the academy as wrong, they were after all beneath her, and not worthy of entering the ranks of the Wonderbolts like herself and Dash. This all came to a head during a cloud busting exercise where the pair unleashed a tornado in an effort to outdo the rest of the class. When the two lost control of it Dust was relieved to see that they had still succeeded in their mission of clearing the skies, dismissing Rainbows complaints about almost hurting her friends. Maybe Rainbow wasn't up for the task of being a wonderbolt. When Spitfire came out and stripped her of her position and kicked her out of the academy however Dusts world came crashing down. In the days that followed Dust became depressed and melancholy. The Wonderbolts had always espoused competition and pushing oneself to the limit. That one pegasus could turn that all around by simply whining to the commander of the Wonderbolts made no sense. Alongside that was the fact that she felt betrayed by Rainbow, a friend who seemed so much like her and yet was willing to throw her under the bus. Returning home to Las Pesasus, Dusts situation worsened as news of her actions reached the city and her family forced her into seclusion to hide their shame. As days passed Dust, looked into the news and politics revolving Rainbow and her friends and her depression turned into anger and disillusionment with Equestria itself. In a case of nepotism Dust believed Spitfire only sided with Rainbow Dash because she was an element of Harmony, and the fact that the accident had endangered the elements themselves. Never mind that the group had been encroaching on military airspace... Or that their reason for trespassing was because the 'pink annoying one' was being stupid. Dust had simply been the scapegoat for Spitfire to make a potential problem with the Princesses of Equestria go away.These were the thoughts running through Dusts mind, she had been cheated of greatness and corruption and stupidity had stolen them from her. She wasn't wrong! This anger would lead her to make a few mistakes, including a one time team up with a bunch of villains in the crystal empire... Or maybe that was a dream... Who knows? This anger was soon tempered with the realization of the futility of everything. She couldn't change anything, not really. When Lightning Dust tried to get employment a combination of her families desire to have her in the shadows, along with the eventual discovery of her actions at the Academy, made keeping a job very difficult. After escaping her home Dust would hope from job to job, city to city, making barely enough to subsist. She couldn't draw upon her families funds, not without alerting them to her location, and scooping her up in their plans or isolating her. Her bitterness against Equestria and the elements has not changed however, especially the betrayal of her one time friend. Character Personality: Arrogant. Independent. Prideful. When in a good mood Dust can be pretty horrible to be around. Shes boastful, eager to challenge others, and easily riled up. That said, its not often you see her like that. A certain amount of melancholy and depression has settled into her day to day life as the mare struggles to figure out a new lot in life. When meeting new ponies the mare tends to be rather aloof, not willing to give them much respect or time unless they prove themselves to her. This extends to leaders and others such as nobility who might expect bowing and scraping. That said for those who do manage to get past her aloofness and earn her respect they can expect a pretty good friend willing to back them up no matter the situation. In respect to her workplace demeanor the mare is curt and polite, if only because shed rather limit her exposure to customers as little as possible. Flying however continues to be her one true calling, especially if a challenge were to be presented. Character Summary: Once a prime Wonderbolt candidate, Lightning Dust has fallen on hard times and now roams from job to job, place to place, with no purpose and idea in life, disillusioned and bitter against the world around her. (The whole dream thing is a reference to the IDW comic where Dust was involved with the whole Sombra thing. )
  10. Putting in a new app, seeing as how I was booted out for a month of inactivity, that was beyond my control... Name: Holly Dash nickname: 'Tutti Frutti' Sex: Female Age: young Mare Species: Unicorn Pelt Color: 'gala pink' as according to LTL wiki Mane/Tail/Markings Color & Style: Similarly styled to Rainbow Dash, it is often seen quite rough around the edges. She does, however enjoy pulling it back from time to time, a loose bun or low riding pony tail are not uncommon to be seen on her. Her mane is striped blue, yellow and purple. Eye Color: Violet Cutie Mark: A single, plump strawberry. Physique: Short and average, she is very active, but not too thin. She loves to race, and never turns down a competition. Origin: Born, and, unfortunately raised, in Beakbreak City. Roleplay Type: Mane Occupation: Fruit merchant, traveler Motivation: To see all the great cities of Equestria-even those in the sky, and bring joy to those around her with her delicious fruit. She also aspires to improve on her life skills as she travels--and ultimately, to settle down in the most wonderful town of them all--yet to be discovered, of course, and raise her own fillies and foals, and a garden all her own. Likes: Fruit-strawberries are the best, fruit pies, well-rounded ponies, family ponies, children, learning, gardening, talking to species not pony, traveling, learning Dislikes: bully ponies, bad parents, vegetables, elderly ponies(she thinks they're icky, but respects them), fru-fru ponies, dishonest ponies, she doesn't much care for adult griffons (but will talk to them given the chance never the less); hates losing, bugs, weeds Character Summary: Holly Dash was born in Beakbreak City, to a pair of irresponsible parents, far too young and deviant to have a filly. Her father was a thief, and her mother was a con artist. Both were wanted by the law of Equestria, and that is what wound them up in Beakbreak. Both of them had terrible addictions to the deadly nightshade, and although Holly's mother loved her filly, she was an uncontrollable liar, and her daughter grew up to know never to trust what her mother told her, never to give her things when she begged for them, never to give in to prying hooves and eyes. She sought out solitude behind a closed door, in her box of a room, and counted the days until she would be a grown up pony, and be able to strike out on her own. It was at about the age when normal fillies head out to school, that her father left. He did not say goodbye--all that Holly recalled was that her mother cried for what seemed like forever. Then, things got a little better. Her mom let her go to school, if only to get her out of the house. She was sometimes locked out of the house, when her mother was in a fit. She didn't mind, though, she made friends with the griffon children in the neighborhood, and found her way to the library, small though it was in this dingy dirty town, and found herself learning things at a remarkable rate. It was on such an occasion to the library, that she saw her first depiction of what would later become her talent in life. A picture book, filled with mouth watering pictures--strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, grapes, and more--all ripe and juicy right there on the pages. She had never seen such wonderful looking food! It was then, for the first time in her life, that she found herself wanting something more--and she begged her mother for it. Her mother, in a stupor from one of her many mind-numbing leaves, fumbled, and complied. After what seemed like an eternity, her mother returned from her 'shopping trip.' She had mostly salt licks, so much that a pony could stumble for weeks without remembering it, and yet in one bag--one tiny bag, there was something special. Something small, something just for her! Seeds. Tiny little strawberry seeds, all packaged up in a little bag no bigger than her tiny filly hoof. Yet nothing enthralled her more. Her mother--already sucking down her salt lick, casually remarked that her daughter should 'make sure you water those.' ButHolly did more than that. She remembered everything about raising these plants from her library books. She buried them in the dampest, thickest looking soil she could find around their dry and irreparable home, and using a jar with holes poked in the lid, she sprinkled water over them. She talked to them every day, she would read books to them, and every day it seems there was more and more green covering her little garden--but still, she didn't see any red. No fruit had even sprouted the little tiny nubs of green buds that make strawberries. She was beginning to lose all hope. It was on a day where she was reading about all the lands of Equestria--out loud to her plants, of course, that it happened. Magic happened. She had never done magic before, yet here it was dragging her off. She fought it, initially, as the horn on her head grabbed her whole body and pulled her along, but with nothing here truly holding her back, she succumbed to it. It dragged her at first, but then began to tug at her every fiber, and soon she found herself running with it, chasing--what she did not know. It had been dark when she was reading with her berries, by candle light, in the wee hours of the morning. The sky was slowly lightening as her horn directed her along--higher and higher into the sharp, high peaks of the Roughrider Ridges. Finally, with her hooves ready to fall off, the magic stopped. She had never been so high up, and never had it been so dark. She was terrified to find her way down. She looked back the way she came, and shivered-the cold wind that slammed against the mountain blowing right through her. Then suddenly, little glimmers of light drifted from the east--from Canterlot. There, miles and miles in the distance, the Summer Sun Celebration was occurring--the most beautiful sunrise she had ever seen. The light spread across the great land of Equestria, and suddenly...she knew. She knew what she wanted to do. She knew where she wanted to go, and that she wanted to grow. And as she looked down the steep ridges, she saw--hardly a speck from this distance, but she saw, next to her gnarled old shack--the bright, swollen red fleck of strawberries--dozens of them, all over her little green patch. As her face lit up with joy, and her heart swelled with hope, her cutie mark--a rosy red single strawberry, glowed to life on her flanks. She set to work after that--collecting every piece of scrap wood she could find, she began to build. It was slow work, as wood seemed hard to come by. She grew older, and her garden grew with her--it was now filled with little berry bushes, and tomatoes, and even a vine of watermelon. All of it grew, along with her creation. Finally, with money saved up from selling her delicious fruit to her neighbors, she was able to buy them--two, beautiful, wooden, wheels. She carefully attached them to what she had built, her cart, and admired her fine work. She had gotten rid of the only dress she owned to make the halter to go over her shoulders and back, but it was well worth it. She was ready to go. To travel all of Equestria. And someday...maybe even Celestia would praise her for the deliciousness of her fruit. She packed up all of her plants, digging them out to the root so that they could be moved and replanted. It was slow workings, loading up that cart with her garden, but it would be worth it someday, she knew. Now came the hard part. Attempting to tell her mother. Well, at least she thought it would be hard. It turned out, at her saying that she was going--tears welled in her eyes to have to tell her mother--the old mare was overjoyed. Albeit she was probably a bit wired from the leaf, she praised Celestia for finally getting rid of such a useless daughter. Fully crying now, Holly left in a flurry of tears, head hanging low as she walked out of Beakbreak. It was then--as she didn't watch where she was going, that she crashed into the thick chest of a stallion. She fumbled with apologies, wiping her eyes with her hoof, and avoiding eye contact with the stranger. "Holly?" She looked up to the stallion at hearing her name, and was astounded. It was her father. His hair was clean-cut, his eyes were clear and not glassy, and his coat had a sheen to it. He was--he was clean! Her jaw slacked, her face aghast, "Dad?!" He nodded solemnly, and saw her cart, "So...how....how is yur mother?" She couldn't hide the pained expression on her face, "She...well...she...." She cut herself off, and looked at him with eyes that spoke the truth, "Ya know." He nodded glumly, and looked to the ground, "I um...Ah'm gonna take care of her now." Holly tilted her head, " 'Take care of her'??" She repeated the phrase, a bit lost by the words, but then suddenly, angry, "NOW ya come back? NOW that ya don't have to take care of a little filly, right?!" "No,Ah--Ah never meant...." Holly's eyes pierced through to him, and he sighed, "Ah didn't want to leave you--but Ah knew that I couldn't get help without leaving....and Ah swore Ah'd come back someday and take care of you...both of ya." She scowled at him, "Well....you can have her. She doesn't want me no more." He was astounded, "Yur mother--she loves you, she's probably just...just..." She sighed, "It's alright. Ah know." her eyes welled with tears, "Ah'll...Ah'm going to sell fruit....on the road." She smiled, "Just...uh....send a letter...when you guys get settled somewhere new, or something...." She moved to start walking again, and he stopped her, drawing her into a hug. Quietly, he told her he was proud of her, and that he loved her. They parted, and she headed into Equestria, suddenly filled with that bright shining joy she first felt when she had seen her strawberries grow for the first time. She trotted faster as she neared the bottom of the ridges, past Bareback Gulch, and was at a run when she went into the Everfree Forest. It took what seemed like forever before she found a town--Ponyville, it was called. She was merrily selling fruit, when a sudden invasion of Parasprite overtook the town, and sent her packing, before all of her food and her cart would be gone. She continued to travel, past an apple orchard, and on towards Canterlot, where she found, just inside of Whitetail Woods, a place. A clearing with fertile soil, and nopony nearby. She left her cart here, and looked around. Nopony to be seen until much closer to Solstice Heights, this was perfect. She magicked out her hoof-made gardening tools, and got to work, hoeing out neat rows of garden, and magicked her uprooted plants back into the ground. She now grows her fruit there, and travels with her cart all over Equestria, selling the most delicious fruit Equestria has ever known! Relationships: First off, her dog, Buck, a black Newfoundland. He rescued her from drowning under the ice one winter. Friends: Stormsong (close friends. Met at TROTL, and have since grown in their friendship. Stormsong saved Holly from a fire.) Applejack (met at TROTL, have hung out and fought a fire together.) Zephyr (friends. Holly thought she had a crush on him, and he didn't feel the same. The two parted as sort-of friends.) Acquaintences: N/A Existing family: Mother (Beakbreak) Father (Beakbreak)
  11. Roleplay Type:Mane RP Name: Rarity Sex: Female Age: Mare (~19-25 in human age) Species: Unicorn Eye Color: Azure (light blue) with a darker blue Eyeshade Coat Color: White with the faintest hint of a blue-grey now and then Mane/Tail/Markings Color & Style: Curly with quite a lively bounce to them, ranging from Indigo to Violet Physique: While the rest of her is extremely feminine, her physique is less so, she's still distinctly a mare but she has enough physical capability to buck a mantacore in the face quite painfully. (Of course it should be noted that all of the Mane 6 use the same base shape - in my mind she would be a little leaner than the other mares, though not to the extent of Fleur) Cutie Mark: Three cut Sapphires Origin/Residence: Born, raised, and still living in Ponyville, though she feels far more at home in Canterlot. Occupation: Fashionista, Designer, Dress Maker (in order of her preference of titles) and Owner of the Carousel Boutique Motivation: To become a world-renown Fashion Designer (At one point her ambition included meeting the "Prince of her Dreams" though after her experience with Prince Blueblood, this has of course moved down on her list...), and to always be there to help her friends. Likes: Gemstones, Fashion, Her friends, and a low-fat cinnamon-apple latte on cold winters mornings Dislikes: Anything Ugly (though instead of blind hatred she desires to improve it), Diamond Dogs, those who would mock or hurt her friends. Character Summary: The Parents were overjoyed when they saw the small white and purple (Indigo! Not purple!) unicorn in their arms that morning at the hospital. Unfortunately, the small unicorn would not be as happy with her life at home... Rarity was born to a pair of very average ponies with no Fashion sense, which became a constant horror of her. She did not understand how they could not see the horrors of the clothes they wore, nor why they never seemed to understand how much her designs could improve them, always dismissing them with "Thats nice, dear" which pushed Rarity to focus harder on her dreams and desires, making her somewhat socially awkward at times. (Sadly a trait she never fully outgrew). While her parents traveled the world, she stayed home and worked on her designs, improving every day. However, much to her dissapointment, there was always something missing, something that she couldn't quite grasp that would take her designs from simply "good" to "Amazing!" she tried everything she could think of from expensive fabric she had to save fore months to get, to complex stitching, but somehow this one facet of design eluded her time and time again! None the less, she would keep on trying, her raw determination and her passion, this was what caused the spark that one night lead her through the wilderness, following her horn's glow as her magic took on a life of it's own! She finally found herself, in a rather sorry state that she would rather nobody see her in, on a cliff before a large rock. She was confused, and the confusion bred anger, she yelled at the rock and her horn, ready to turn and leave, when there was an explosion, sending a shockwave out that split the rock down the center, each side falling open to reveal hundreds of gorgeous gemstones, then came the magnificent rainbow wake that made every stone shine more colors than they ever did in normal light! Rarities eyes seemed to glow as she felt her breath taken away by the marvelous sight. THIS was what she had missed, THIS was what would take her designs to the next level, THIS was her DESTINY! Quickly Gathering the stones, she made her way back to Ponyville and added them to her current endevers - costumes for the school talent show. While everyone had said before that her designs were very nice (she had gotten so tired of hearing that) they were now awed by them, earning her critical praise from those in attendance, and, more importantly, her Cutie Mark. Rarity now, having learned what she had been missing for so long, began to create more and better costumes, gowns, and assorted accessories for Stallion (if only she had more creative freedom with the stallions, she could have made the so handsome...) Her designs improved each day and it was not long before she was able to begin selling them outright, at first only getting enough bits to cover her costs, then she began to be offered more, while she would never overcharge anyone, she welcomed the extra income and began saving towards a new goal - to move out of her house where she had to face her parents. She loved them dearly but they simply did not understand, and her mother was always offering her unwanted, though well-intended, advice. This was becoming even more abundant now that Rarity had a little sister on the way. Part of her hated to leave her parents, but she knew if she wanted to reach her true potential she would have to strike out on her own. Thus, day by day, bit by bit she slowly began saving until finally she had enough to get her own place. Unfortunately, her love of art and design got the best of her, though, and while she had the money she did not have the design, so she set about designing her own shop. While her skills in clothing design helped her tremendously, she was not the best at architecture, and it took her almost a full year to complete the design to her satisfaction. By this time her sister Sweetybelle had been brought into the world, and while she loved the foal dearly, sweetie was constantly messing up her designs, whether by playing with the 'shiny gems', rumpling the expensive fabric, or spilling different liquids all over her sketches. To make matters worse, her globe-trotting parents often left sweety at home when they vacationed and expected rarity to baby-sit the disaster-prone foal. She absolutely had to get out now, before she had a nervous breakdown. Life changes, everyone tells you this, but nobody really tells you how to cope. For rarity, her first day in her new place was a mixture of awe, horror, and frantic decorating. She began with sweeping out all the dust that had been missed from the construction, afterwards she unpacked her fabrics and sewing machine, it was only a matter of time before the windows all had matching curtains and even a matching bedspread - except for the fact she lacked a bed, or for that matter a table... she had let the artist in her get the better of her again and this meant that she was heading out as the sun set to try and find a bed and at minimum a table and chairs... hopefully some that were elegant as well as functional... but at that hour what she ended up with was a measly folding table and an over-stuffed couch that would need to be recovered when she had the time. It was far from her dreams, but it would suffice for now... This pattern continued for rarity as the seasons changed, slowly she assembled her business, slowly she bought and often altered furniture, it took time and effort, but nobody would ever say she was a pony afraid of hard work! She might go about it a little differently than most and take care not to harm her well-groomed mane or polished hooves, but that didn't mean she was afraid of spending hours on any project, no matter how small, to make sure it was done properly! Rarity was a perfectionist, such was her greatest fault, and such would come back to bite her in the tail many, many, many times over the course of her life... It was during these transitory years that Rarity first met Fluttershy. The yellow mare had just moved to Ponyville from Cloudsdale (though rarity eventually learned that "moved" wasn't quite the term that should have been used...) Rarity having been looking for a pony to model her clothing line, she ran into Fluttershy, and though the Pegasus politely turned her down, she did recommend the then-new spa that had just opened up in town. At first Rarity was a little reluctant to go there with Fluttershy, having just met her --- a touch of the awkwardness that still haunted her from her foal years of pouring herself into her work (which she unfortunately still did at times), but upon seeing how much more awkward it was for the other mare, Rarity relaxed and agreed, years later it is still a weekly get-together for the pair. This was also when she met Fluttershy's Foalhood friend Rainbow Dash, and while Rarity and Dash didn't exactly get along, their interactions were not entirely unpleasant for either of them. (Except when Rarity made the mistake of asking Dash to model for her, and she had to almost chain the pegasus down to keep her still --- sadly Rarity's desire to use dash as a model has over-ruled her reason and to this day she still occasionally ropes in Rainbow, even if she does have to deal with keeping the spectrum-maned mare still long enough to finish...) It was during one of these such get-togethers that rarity mentioned what a change it was to have moved from her home with her parents and sister into her shop where it was so empty. What surprised the unicorn was how enthusiastically fluttershy suggested she find a pet, she had never seen the yellow mare so energetic before. Rarity had considered it at first a passing thing, but as soon as they left the Spa, the pegasus practically drug her out to the edge of the everfree forest where her cottage was. Rarity, though not amused by the sudden change in schedule, nor the less-than-pristine area, decided to humor her friend and browse the quiet mare's offerings. They went over everything from parots to puppies, snakes to spider-monkies, and bats to bullfrogs, none of them piquing rarity's interest and a few downright disgusting her, though she fought with all her effort to keep it hidden. Then, just as she was about to make an excuse to get back to her shop and take a nice hot bath, she eyed the tiny white ball of fur curled up in the corner. It was a mother cat who had just had a litter of kittens, the beautiful silky white fur, the gemlike look in their eyes, and the pitiful mews of the kittens was too much and rarity's heart melted then and there. It was not long before she found herself gushing over a small prissy kitten she had already named Opal. Taking it home, she felt a turn-about in her life, the dull and quiet studio felt much more at home now, more warm and welcome, and she found her productivity doubled! This increase in productivity did not go unnoticed, The mayor, needing someone to help with decorating the town for the Summer Sun Festival. Rarity saw this as an amazing honor and indeed a step up in the world for her. The Princess herself was going to come to ponyville this year, which meant that not only would the royalty see her work, but all the paparazzi who followed would be exposed to it as well! This was her first true big shot and she couldn't blow it! While she was decorating she was surprised to be interrupted by a unicorn --- and a baby dragon who was almost drooling on the floor. For a moment Rarity wondered if the dragon had a mental condition, then she realized he was simply in awe of her beauty, which made his infatuation tolerable (Though over time she and spike have become much closer, she still thinks about this first impression and laughs) Rarity almost dismissed the pair outright, thinking they were just visitors, untill she heard they had been sent from Canterlot by Celestia herself! Not only had this mare -who sadly seemed lacking in the fassion-sence department- lived in canterlot, but she knew Celestia! This was too good of an opportunity! Rarity had to make a good impression on them --- and help Twilight with her rather dreadful mane... of course it wouldn't hurt to add some other adornments. With a little work... Unfortunately for Rarity, and fortunately for Twilight, the latter bolted while Rarity's back was turned. Luckily she had gotten twilight's mane straightened out, and it appeared that the unicorn had indeed liked the saddle, so it would be an improvement. Rarity felt her heart still thumping though at the thought of Canterlot, she would have to find a way to hear more. By luck she heard about a welcome-party being thrown by the local hyperactive self-proclaimed "Party Planner" Pinkie. Rarity had seen Pinkie around town, even finding herself at some parties that the Curly-maned pony had thrown, and while she had fun they were not quite her cup of imported herbal tea... None the less, she resolved to make her way to the party as well. The guests were many in number, and from all over the town, Rarity spotted her friends Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, as well as the local owner of Sweet Apple Acres, AppleJack. It seemed everyone was getting to know Twilight, so she mingled, after all even the farm-pony seemed to have cleaned up for the party. To rarity's suprise she had a difficult time finding Twilight, seeing her only a few minutes before she was lost in the crowd (later finding out twilight had excused herself to go to her room for a nap, or rather to hide from the "crazy ponies" but Rarity prefers to believe the former) As it would happen, though, dissaster struck... Near the end of the night when everyone had left the party to reconviene at the city hall for the Princess's appearance (rarity was quite dissapointed by the lack of paparazzi) it became clear foul-play was afoot, as the previously imprisoned Nightmare Moon made her presence known, having kidnapped Celestia and locked the moon in the sky above "forever". At first, rarity felt somewhat powerless, this was a dredful turn of events, and she knew little more than the old pony tales that her parents had told her as a foal. She headed for the library, thinking she might find something there, a desire in her heart to help everyone, and was reminded upon arrival that Twilight had taken up residence there. Upon hearing Twilight's declaration that she would defeat nightmare moon, rarity felt the desire increase and unify into a single direction - she would help them all by helping Twilight, If they could somehow defeat the menace that had risen once more, then it would help everypony in town! It was during this trek that they faced many perils, but the one that hit Rarity closest was the plight of a roaming Sea Serpent who had been disfigured by Nightmare Moon. Rarity felt the scale's pain, she could only imagine how she would feel if half her mane had been lopped off abruptly and jaggedly. It was her decision to give of herself that would earn her the Element of Kindness. Which, in a bizarre turn of events, could have been the very thing that saved the life of Princess Luna. When the final showdown came and the Elements were activated, The others all were thinking of nothing but destruction of their enemy, but the kindness in Rarity's heart begged not for destruction, but for salvation and redemption, to sure the mare of the night of her wickedness, and this was enough to divert the elements just enough to save Luna from a dark fate. Over the years, Rarity has come to learn many things from her friends (and in turn teach them a few as well), such as believing in those you trust most, Never forgetting who your true friends are, and to look past appearances. While her kindness has at times cost her dearly in both bits and threatened her sanity (such as when she undertook the making of five original designs for her friends' gowns for the Gala and then redesigning them to their specifications (even if she felt they were making horrific mistakes, she cared more about making them happy than her own opinion or workload)) and that sometimes there are more important things than bits and beauty - namely family (having reconnected with her younger sister at the local sisterhooves social). While she still has much to learn and far to go, she knows she can do it with the help of her friends! (even if they do often need some guidance in fashion!) Relationship Status: Rarity spent much of her adult life looking for her, very literal, Prince charming (and much of her foalhood dreaming of him) However her dreams died a rather cruel death when she found him and realized that his beauty only ran skin-deep. After a rather unpleasant night she left him in a rather messy pile of cake at the Gala. This, unfortunately lowered her standards a hair too far, making way for a short but heavy relationship with a large boulder named Tom. After Rarity came to her senses and threw tom out on the street, it's come into question wheather she is still looking for the stallion of her dreams, or if she will decide to settle with an over-infatuated, but good and honest, baby dragon. Misc facts: -Rarity was paterened, in part, after Scarlet O'hera from Gone with the Wind. -The G4 (FiM) Rarity was actually a transplant of the G3 Rainbow Dash's personality (in return G4 Dash gained the personality of Firefly, from G1) Image: Video: Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X300hf89Ju4 +++
  12. ((I've been talking a big talk about how much I love, look up to, and relate to Rainbow Dash, but I've not been acting very much like her - Dash would never give up this easily, she wouldn't roll over and play dead despite the odds, So neither am I. I'm taking my favorite pony's advice and being more assertive, even if this doesnt get accepted I know I gave it my all!)) (Dont know if I need the "[Earth Pony]" tag or not since the topic tag is "FiM Cast") Roleplay Type: Mane RP Name: Pipsqueak "Pip" Sex: Colt Age: Foal (~10-12 in human years) Species: Earth Pony Eye Color: "Dark Scarlet" (Brown with a hint of red) Coat Color: White with brown patches "Pinto" Mane/Tail/Markings Color & Style: Brown with light brown highlights, Tail is short while his mane is slightly long for a colt Physique: Small, but in good shape for his age; neither overweight nor underweight Cutie Mark: NA (He hopes it's a pirate flag) Origin/Residence: Pipsqueak was born and lived for a short time in Trottingham, however recently moved to Ponyville (see below). Occupation: Student and "Future Sky Pirate!" Motivation: "To become a sky pirate!" (hey, he's a foal, how many of us didnt want to be a ninja, a pirate, or a prince/ess when we were his age?) Likes: SkyPirates, Candy (especially the cream-filled ones!), Princess Luna Dislikes: Broccali, going to bed early, Ninjas Character Summary: Pipsqueak was born to a well-to-do family in Trottingham, which means he was taught many manners that he quickly forgets and is occasionally confused by the stark differences in his old home in an upper-class suburb and his new home in the rural town of Ponyville. However, he tries to make the best of things, even if it means he no longer gets to take an afternoon swim in a private pool. While he doesnt fully understand the reasons behind it, he is quite happy to have moved, in part because there are more Foals his age here willing to play 'pirate' with him, and because of the more frequent (though still rare) visits by the Princesses (Especially Luna) He still sometimes comes home from a unhappy day at school where other foals laughed at his accent and wishes there was a buttler there to fix him a sandwich. However, he is quickly growing accustomed to doing his own chores, which one might argue was an improvement and will make him a much better stallion one day. (To an end it will give him a wonderful perspective, having lived through both walks of life and be able to relate to those from either) While he may not have his own private pool, he did manage to keep most of his library of adventure stories which entertain him as much now as then. He frequently ventures out into the woods near his home to re-enact and extrapolate on the daring adventures of the heros, even though so far his greatest feat was saving a fish who had gotten stuck in a shallow pool of water after a rainstorm. Of course, for a foal his age, one just might consider that a commendable deed, especially when so many adults would have just walked on bye and left the fish to the slowly shrinking pool of water. The story behind the move is an unhappy one about a father who played a little too hard with his money, This cost him his rather large home and upper-class lifestyle. However, one might argue that it turned out for the best as it allowed him to re-connect with his mate and son... and possibly future foals... The humbling of his new job did wonders for the Stallion's attatude, taking him from a stuck-up suit to an average-joe he now finds himself with many more friends and in fact realized he's happier with others around than he ever was back in Trottingham. Pip's mother was originally the kind to stay at home, or rather, to attend social functions instead of working (not that she needed to). She is slowly getting used to "country life" with the help of her husband and with seeing how happy he and their son are, but it has not and will not be easy for her to fully adjust to the change - if she ever does - and she still longs to move back to the city... Pip spends his days dreaming of one day flying around the world in an airship having adventures grand and small - Batteling dragons and hords of griffens, discovering new lands, and occasionally saving cats who get stuck in trees. While he currently has thoughts of being a pirate on his mind, others have said that with his interest in the sky and it's vessles, its quite likely he will grow up to pilot an airship, or possibly even become some form of rough-and-tumble adventurer as he admires and imagines (neither of which Pip would mind, though currently he much prefers the idea of an adventurer or a pirate to the simple life of flying a "freighter") His school-life is fairly average, though he often does get teased for his 'upper crust' british accent and for occasionally being confused about the differences in the rich life he once lived and the simple one he now does. His grades are average, though he could easily improve them if he would spend more time studying rather than daydreaming. However, there is one aspect of school that he does love - being with other foals who he can relate to. Sure, none of them ever had a private carriage to take them to school before, and sure none of them ever spent an evening in an expensive costal resort, but more of them than back home were interested in true adventures. Also, much more important, he has learned things there that he never learned back home, not just math or writing, but life and living... Sickness knows not young nor old, mare nor stallion, and Pip has fallen victem to it as well, specifically, love sickness - While he is unsure of what the feelings he gets in his heart every time he sees that filly means, he is aware that he enjoys being with her, and that he misses her when he is alone. Perhaps pip's love for is nothing more than a childish crush, and perhaps he will grow out of it one day, or perhaps the two will share a cabin in an airship high over equestria while their own foals run about the deck, gazing at the ground far below. These things are both near and far in pip's mind as he spends his days. He does not know what exactly it all means, but he knows he is willing to do everything he can to help her in whatever way he can, his mind may jokingly see her as his 'first-mate' and he as a skypirate captain, but his heart, at least for now, sees something far more... now if he can only figure out how to tell her how he feels...

  13. Thunderlane Stormclouds? Fast? You came to the right guy! RP Type: Mane RP Name: Thunderlane Sex: Male Age: Stallion Species: Pegasus Eyes: Auric (#E4CF86) Coat: Gunmetal grey. Mane/Tail: Cerulean, with alternating streaks of sky blue. Mane is cut short and sticks straight up. Practical and cool! Tail is clipped shorter to keep it out of the way while flying. Physique: Rough, tough, and ready to take on anything! An athletic build, on the muscular side. Residence: Ponyville born and raised! Occupation: Ponyville weather team, stormmaker/breaker. Wonderbolt candidate! Cutie Mark: A grey windblown storm cloud with a single lightning bolt coming out of it, symbolizing his talents at stormbreaking. Character History The son of an earth pony quill salespony and a veteran weather mare, Thunderlane is Ponyville born and raised and one hundred percent Heartland pony. His colthood days were spent climbing rocks, going on hikes, and playing hoofball with his friends. His athletic affinity and passion for hoofball made him quite popular in school. There was even talk of him growing up to join the Hoofington Club professional team. But as is often the case for childhood aspirations, a grown Thunderlane developed very different plans. With the birth of his brother Rumble, Thunderlane found himself the go to example for everything, including working his wings. Their mother insisted that Thunderlane take a balanced approach to his athletics, learning grace on both hoof and wing. With gritted teeth, Thunderlane accepted the trip to flight school in Cloudsdale. The trip was an eye-opener for a young Thunderlane. Instead of just a way to get around, flying was an EXPERIENCE, one that Thunderlane just couldn’t get enough of. He was even more thrilled when they began teaching the basics of weather work. It was then that Thunderlane realized he wanted to fly, and fly well. After his first stint with flight school, Thunderlane jumped at opportunities to work weather, often going in with his mother, picking up a few bits change while learning on the job. Wanting to push her son further, Thunderlane’s mother put him in charge of some of the younger weather ponies when a storm was scheduled for Ponyville. Jumping at the chance, Thunderlane planned, directed, and crafted the best storm he could with his friends. With all the thunder and lightning and rain going on, Thunderlane hardly noticed that his cutie mark had appeared! He followed up on his success with a permanent post with Ponyville’s weather team. His special talent was realized and his perfect job was already his. What more could he want? Ever the athlete, Thunderlane told himself that he couldn’t stop there. What was next? The WONDERBOLTS. With his family cheering him on, Thunderlane trained hard and applied for the Wonderbolts, eventually securing himself a spot in their academy program as a cadet. Though he knows he isn’t quite a natural aerobatics ace like that rainbow-maned one, Thunderlane tries hard, working his stormbreaking techniques into his routines and doing his best to improve as he goes. Character Summary Thunderlane is a consummate athlete, if only in mindset. While not as gifted in flight as some of his classmates, he works and plays hard, making up for lack of raw talent with carefully practiced skill and endless determination. His jock label and well-toned physique made him quite a hit with the fillies in school, though he was a bit sheepish about the attention. His need to be an exemplar for his brother and stay scandal-free for his athletic career kept him from getting too deeply involved with anypony. In spite of his physique, Thunderlane is not a musclehead. His weather work with his mother taught him many things about meteorology and astronomy, reading the sky and the seasons to make the appropriate weather shine and inappropriate weather disappear on command. He is very much a tactile learner, preferring to get hooves-on work in to learn the ropes rather than reading it in a book. Off the field and off the job, Thunderlane is laid back, enjoying jokes, drinks, and friendly competition. Thunderlane still plays hoofball and follows the Hoofington Club, though his dreams lie firmly in the clouds. Miscellaneous Trottingham United? Booooooo! Hisssssss! He's also a bit of an amateur chef.
  14. Shining Armor Equestria is my home, but the Crystal Empire is my charge. I’ll do all in my power to protect it just as I did my homeland. RP Type: Mane RP Name: Shining Armor, REA Sex: Male Age: Stallion Species: Unicorn Coat colour: White Mane/Tail colour & Style: Ultramarine with streaks of navy and sky blue. Eye colour: Blue. Cutie Mark: A pink star inscribed on a purple shield, with three more stars above. Vector by ZuTheSkunk on DeviantArt. Physique: Fit from REA service, but handsome rather than rugged, as his work is mainly conducted in urban, civilized areas. Origin: Canterlot born and raised. Occupation: REA officer, rank of Captain. Currently on special assignment in the Crystal Empire. Motivation: The love of his wife Cadence. To protect Equestria. To carry out his duties with honor and integrity. Knowing that his sister will someday do great things. Likes: Canterlot, seeing the world, learning about different cultures and civilizations, accompanying Celestia and Luna, his wife Cadence, ponies with zeal, his sister Twilight, pride in a job well done, wine, tea, the military life, hay fries (a guilty pleasure) Dislikes: Dishonesty and deception, bugs, apathy, anypony who tries to mess with his sister, boastfulness, office swill coffee, higher math History Born to an author and a professor, it seemed unlikely that Shining Armor would follow the path that he did. But from the very beginning, Shining Armor was curious and energetic, testing his magic at every turn and always finding ways to break out of his crib and explore. This only escalated further when his sister Twilight was born. Now he had somepony else to explore with! Between the university and their energetic foals, his parents had their hooves full. The two siblings could not have been more different. While Twilight was bookish and spurned socializing as she grew up, Shining Armor was out making friends and getting to know the world of Equestria. In school, he viewed every field trip and social event as a new adventure, tackling every social challenge with aplomb. Playing soldier was not uncommon for colts of Shining Armor’s age. He spent many an afternoon after school linking up with his friends, protecting the citizens of equestria from dragons, criminals, and rogue griffons in mock battles in the parks. They often watched the Guard patrols go by, marching in step with them and saluting the watch commanders just as the soldiers did. By day he would play soldier. By night, he would read of their history and customs and commit to memory the codes of conduct befitting of a soldier. One day, Shining Armor’s class went to tour Canterlot’s REA garrison. As he gawked at the stately halls, gazed upon the magnificent suits of ceremonial armor that the Guard wore, and listened to the pride in the REA lieutenant’s voice as he described his work, he realized what he wanted to be: a Royal Guard! He went right up to the lieutenant and told him of his intent. Amused with the colt’s enthusiasm, the lieutenant began quizzing Shining Armor on Guard procedure and history. What began as curiosity quickly escalated to admiration as Shining Armor answered every question with his own personal knowledge no matter how obscure or complex the answer. Shining Armor concluded by repeating to the lieutenant what he’d said earlier: “I want to be a Royal Guard!” Impressed, the lieutenant asked permission to keep him after the field trip, which was quickly granted. He brought Armor before the garrison captain, who also grilled Armor on his knowledge and reaffirmed his dedication. “I can’t make you a guard right now,” the captain said. “But I know you’ll make a fine soldier some day. Come back and see me after you’ve finished school, then we’ll talk.” “I’ll be the best, sir,” Armor quipped. “I promise I’ll be back.” When Shining Armor returned to his class, everypony was staring. What happened? Did he step in something? Was something stuck to his collar? When Armor turned around, it was his cutie mark, the marker of his zeal and desire to learn, lead, and excel. The desire never faded; the dream persisted well beyond a high school whim, becoming a goal that drove him to succeed to the utmost degree. Upon entering Canterlot University, he enrolled in their ROTC program while studying history and political science. Graduating with honors, Shining Armor finally received his commission as an officer of the Royal Equestrian Army. While most of his duties involved garrison rotations and base guard duty, he carried himself well, even submitting proposals to the watch commander for improving the efficiency of the patrol routes and minimizing downtime during changing of the guard. For his exemplary service, he was promoted to Captain and put in charge of coordinating palace security. Mi Amore Cadenza Twilight and Shining Armor’s parents were often busy with bookkeeping and teaching. Still, they needed somepony to watch Twilight while Shining Armor was at school. Their answer came in the form of a very special pony, Mi Amore Cadenza. Upon their first meeting, Cadence and Shining Armor immediately hit it off, becoming fast friends. While Shining Armor attended school in the city, Cadence took care of Twilight between her own classes. In their downtime, they carried on endlessly about what they had learned that day and what adventures they planned on having the next day. Even after Twilight grew up, Cadence and Shining Armor kept closely in touch. Finally, they met again in Canterlot; Shining Armor now a handsome captain in Her Majesty’s Royal Equestrian Army and Cadence now a beautiful alicorn Princess. The embers that had been smoldering for years finally ignited, with Shining Armor proposing marriage shortly after. The changeling incident only served to reinforce their unique bond. Their love now tempered in the flames of conflict, they stood ready to face anything -- together. The Crystal Empire There was never any doubt in Shining Armor’s mind that Cadence was a very important pony. But when he and his wife were suddenly summoned to Celestia’s throne room, he finally understood just how important she was. Celestia tasked them with a very important job: defending the Crystal Empire from attack until Twilight could recover the Crystal Heart, a relic of immense power. Keeping Cadence safe and in good spirits was as much a trial for Armor as it was for the princess. Seeing his wife suffer to keep safe the ponies of the Crystal Empire was never something that Armor desired, rendered even more difficult when his magic was crippled by King Sombra’s corruption. But in the end, Twilight was able to locate the Crystal Heart, restoring Cadence’s magic, and driving Sombra out for good. When Cadence was finally revealed as the Crystal Princess, Shining Armor requested reassignment to the Crystal Empire to be with his wife and to help bring the Empire back up to speed with modern Equestria. While he still maintains ties to the REA in Canterlot, he currently makes his home in the Crystal Empire as security coordinator and prince consort. Personality Shining Armor will never hesitate to put himself in harm’s way to help another pony, be it the average pony on the street or Princess Celestia herself. He maintains an open-door policy at his office at the garrison and welcomes occasional stops to chat in addition to his scheduled meetings. Despite his choice of military career track, Shining Armor is not as uptight as much of high society Canterlot. His no-nonsense attitude and trust in his command to do its job has endeared him to the enlisted mares and stallions in the Guard and earned the grudging respect of the officership. He is able to transition between addressing officers and enlisted with ease, making him a valuable asset to the Guard. While he is very straightforward and to the point on duty, the Captain is friendly and informal when off duty. Shining Armor does his best not to bring his work home with him, feeling that the stress of the job should remain firmly within the confines of the garrison. He retains his gregarious and fun-loving nature from his youth and never hesitates to extend the hoof of friendship if he can help it. Twilight will always be his kid sister and best friend. Even grown up, they make time for each other to swap stories, play games, read books, and reminisce about old times. Cadence will always be his lover, confidant, and complement. Nopony is as near or dear to Shining Armor’s heart and he never hesitates to let her know it. Whether the newlyweds are engaged in playful banter or enjoying a quiet moment together, the bond they share is unmistakable and nigh unbreakable. Miscellaneous Though Shining Armor never liked large bugs before (especially centipedes), his brush with the Changelings escalated his dislike to a minor phobia. While he rarely loses his cool, his discomfort is immediately obvious if something with chitinous plating and more than four legs walks into the room. The Captain is intelligent and well-read, sharing a love of books with his sister. However, while Twilight gravitated to the hard sciences, Shining Armor focused on social sciences. He holds dual degrees in history and political science, with concentrations in military history and international relations, respectively. Shining Armor was once asked to be a poster model for an REA recruiting office. When he agreed, one of the stallions in his unit pasted captions to the posters as a prank. This spawned a rash of similar pranks across the base, quickly elevating Shining Armor’s handsomeness to memetic status. The incident gained him the nickname “Ridiculously Photogenic Stallion” among the Guard which still persists in some circles today, much to his chagrin.

  15. Roleplay Type: Mane Rp Name: Red Delicious but prefers to go by Red Sex: Male Age: Stallion Species: Earth Pony Eye Color: Bright Blue Coat Color: Pail yellow Mane/Tail/Markings Color & Style: His mane and tail are Skye blue, his mane is cut short and a little spiky and hangs slightly over his eyes, his tail is sort of long and is a little wavy but has it’s own slightly spiked way to it Physique: Slightly muscular due to years of apple bucking and apple harvesting. Cutie Mark: A bright red perfect shiny apple! (Did you suspect anything less?) Origin/Residence: Originally from Fillydelphia but now lives in Solistic Heights getting his own apple farm off the ground. Occupation: Proud Apple Farmer and Cook! Motivation: To do his family and his crop proud by keeping everything healthy and vibrant. Likes: Apples, His family, Bright healthy plants, Polka! Dislikes: “Lederhosen” Lazyness, sick plants, and Pears Character Summary: WhenRed was a little thing he spent his free time when he was not working the farm reading all he could about the farms! He especially enjoyed books about keeping apples healthy and ripe; in fact he got his cutie mark based on the fact that when the apple trees on their farm seemed a bit puny it was his remembering a trick from the book that perked the apples right back up to bright red bountifulness, and he earned his cutie mark due to his talents with keeping the crop healthy. Red now lives in Solistic Heights tending to his own farm now, though he grows small adorable and delicious crab apples since they seem to just LOVE Solistic Heights soil! He is very close to his family and adores them all, and helps out any family member in need; always eager to run to any farm at any time to help them over any hurtles they might be having. (The Apple Family has like a barn raising every week, what are they DOING in that barn?) On his farm he’s got a few pigs, cows, and chickens, as well as his faithful Sparrow Bushwack who thinks he’s a little guard dog, though he’s got no teeth to back up that little attitude of his! Summary: When not Apple Farming Red enjoys reading up on the newest tips and tricks of apple care but he sometimes gets so engrossed in a book that he can forget the other ponies around him; as a matter of fact he’s like that whenever he gets too into his work so he’s not a good team player unless you wheel him in line from time to time, he also has a one track mind when it comes to conversation, and will go on and on about a topic unless prodded to reign it in. Loyal to his family, passionate in his work, and not super smooth with the ladies, Red always tries his best at bringing honor to the Apple Family name!
  16. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria RP – Tier 2 Name: Derpy Hooves Sex: Female Age: Young mare Species: Pegasus Eye colour: Yellow Coat: Light gray Mane/Tail: Derpy’s blonde mane and tail are rather unkempt. Physique: Slightly leaner and thinner compared to a pegasus mare her age, as her weather team duties require that her legs and wings remain trim enough for sustained flight in hazardous conditions. Residence: Ponyville Occupation: Electrical Weather Specialist (EWS) 1st Class Cutie Mark: Two large bubbles intermixed with five smaller ones form Derpy’s cutie mark. These bubbles signify that Derpy has an unbreakable bubbly personality, of course! It was only natural that the accident-prone Derpy earned her cutie mark on the tail-end of a series of blunders. Determined to make her mother a birthday present for the ages, the blonde-maned filly set out to construct a spice rack for use in the family cloud house. And just to amaze her mum even more, Derpy would do this task without any help or guidance at all! Of course, the end result of her labors was an abomination that didn’t resemble a spice rack at all. Nonetheless, Derpy proudly presented the gift to her mother as if it was a brilliant masterpiece. Her mother at first didn’t know how to respond initially, but seeing Derpy’s beaming face made her glad that nothing could ever bring her daughter. As the mother gladly confessed this to Derpy, the clumsy filly figured right then that yeah, even with all her mishaps, her inability to give into frustration would always set her apart from other ponies. Thus in front of her mom’s very eyes, Derpy’s cutie mark materialized. History: The daughter of a well-to-do couple of some of Cloudsdale’s premier scientists, Derpy Hooves was born with misaligned eyes. Not that Derpy minded her eyes all that much though; messing around with her unique field of vision actually provided her with hours of endless amusement as a foal. As she grew up, her mind figured out how to tune out one eye at will whenever she didn’t want to deal with skewed depth perception. What did worry Derpy’s parents however was that their child apparently lacked any form of common sense at all. Derpy’s mum and dad loved their happy-go-lucky filly to death, but their best efforts were not enough to teach Miss Hooves to think through things first before performing actions. Always the impatient sort, Derpy hated being cooped up in flight school all day when she could be doing more fun things, and she didn’t care at all for the fact that she was a terrible student. Derpy in fact did manage to barely graduate with her peers, but even today, her parents with all their intellect just don’t know what went wrong. As Miss Hooves matured into a mare, it came time for her to find a way to support herself. After spectacularly-failed stints as a mailmare, a nanny, and a doctor’s assistant, one of Derpy’s friends facetiously suggested that she apply to be an electrical weather specialist for a weather team. Derpy being Derpy, she failed to sense the inherent risks involved in a job notorious for a high turnover rate. All see could envision was a chance to get paid to play with thunderous lightning! Applying for an open position in the town of Ponyville, the clumsy mare shocked those who knew her best in how comparatively competent she was dealing with airborne electricity. Never losing her nerve despite various on-the-job accidents, Derpy remained in her position long enough to “earn her wings” and achieve a promotion to EWS 1st class. To this day, the pegasus remains a resident of Ponyville and has no plans to move elsewhere. Character Summary: As an electrical weather specialist 1st class, Derpy Hooves is expected to help trigger lightning bolts during scheduled thunderstorms, break up rogue weather systems blowing in from the Everfree Forest, and perform other tasks requiring the handling of electrically-charged clouds. Hardly anything else can excite the mare more than causing clouds to go BOOM, although it does kinda stink for her whenever she gets electrocuted in the line of her duties. As she understands things... clouds tend to work funky. To the great annoyance of many ponies, bad luck and calamity seem to surround Miss Hooves. Thanks to Derpy’s impatience and sheer inability to learn from past mistakes, almost anything that the ditzy pegaus tries to accomplish will ultimately end in failure. Such failures have oftentimes come with injury (both to herself and to others) and property damage to boot. To Derpy however, none of the misfortune she causes is really all that bad; all that matters is that she keeps persisting for the sake of others and to try over and over again, right? As Derpy in many ways never “grew up” so to speak, she has an insatiable love to keep on catering to the inner foal within her. Aside from a passion for toy collecting and a hunger for sweets (cookies, muffins, pies; they all taste delicious in her book), the pegasus has a tendency to daydream and get lost in an exciting imaginary world that despite being mismashed from all sorts of other factional stories, is in fact totally original in every way! But perhaps Derpy’s crowning achievement might be the creation of Derpyball; a game where the only rules are that the game can’t be played in the same way twice! Such rules come in handy a lot for Miss Hooves, as she thinks having to remember rules is for chumps. For all the headaches caused by Derpy Hooves over the years, those who’ve come to know her personally can’t deny that the young mare is simply fun to hang around if not entrusted with any responsibilities. Derpy possesses a sense of childlike wonder that few ponies her age posses, and she absolutely never hesitates to try anything new to introduce herself to somepony if the opportunity presents itself. The pegasus furthermore doesn’t have it in her to become judgmental in under any circumstance, even if somepony she’s with is genuinely bothersome to others. As long as a pony’s willing to hang out with her, then everything’s all right for Derpy! For the foreseeable future, Derpy Hooves is set on remaining on Ponyville's weather team while making sure to write to her parents in Cloudsdale every so often. Hapless she may be, but the pegasus is quite content with her easygoing life and has no plans to aim for anything greater. As far as the googly-eyed pony is concerned, her world is already sunshine and rainbows, and it will remain that way as long as she keeps being her bubbly self!

    This is Zoebel12's adorable Pesteza. She is just a blast to draw and I adore her design. I decided to go ahead and finish the last three portraits before the thread concluded cause I plan on opening a new one in Canterlot Chronicles at some point.

  18. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria RP - Tier 1 Name: Celestia Sex: Female Age: Unknown, seemingly ageless, though appears to be the age of a typical mare Species: Alicorn Eye colour: Amethyst, a gradient of dark to light Coat: A pearly pink coat, which can be mistaken for white due to lightness of hue Mane/Tail: Her mane and tail flow through her innate arcane aura, resembling the colours are similar to that of the northern lights and movement of them is similar to the lights of the Crystal Empire. There are brilliant dynamic pastel like colours of green, purple, blue and pink, which seem to lighten as they reach the tips of the mane and tail as it flows. Her mane flows majestically with an almost regal air about it. Physique: She is tall and lithe, quite a bit taller than the average pony. Most of her great stature comes from her long slender legs. Residence: Canterlot Castle Occupation: Co-Ruler of Equestria, Guardian and bringer of day. Cutie Mark: A sun with eight wavy rays emanating from the center. Celestia didn't get her cutie mark from raising the sun for the first time as you’d expect. Such a feat for a young filly would be far fetched to say the least. Instead she got it when she demonstrated her innate leadership abilities and ability to bring balance and light to all ponykind. Many ponies remember the story of Hearth’s Warming Eve, and how the three clans came together in the end in mutual harmony. That however was not the end of the story. Though the leaders and their assistants had made peace and tried to bring it forth to all pony kind, like all change, it isn't always easy. There were disheartened ponies who wished to prevent the unification of the three clans, and would often prevent other ponies from doing their job, and to blame it on clans. It reached the point where the unicorns finally refused to raise the sun, and thus a community meeting was called of all three, now unified clans. During this community meeting where the leaders tried desperately to make all ponyfolk see reason, it seemed to be a fruitless endeavor, eventually threatening to punish those responsible for their acts against their new found peace. This was the story until Celestia, a older filly at the time stood up. She and her younger sister were inherently different, possessing traits of all three pony kinds. And so she decided to make a stand, and shed a new perspective. She only said a few simple words. Encouraging a common camaraderie, suggesting that punishment wasn't the way. She said that punishment would only serve to further segregate. She and her sister were the only pony without a place, because they were unique in having traits belonging to all three clans. She asked if they were to be outcast because of their uniqueness and hated by all. And asked why all ponyfolk couldn't step into the light and join harmoniously. Moved by the filly’s words, the unicorns joined together and raised the sun. When the sun was raised by the unicorns she noticed a light upon her flank and saw that her cutie mark had appeared. She realized then that it was her destiny to unite the ponyfolk in mutual harmony. History: Celestia was extremely close to her sister Luna as she was growing up. They did most everything together, not forgetting about their friends. Life was generally normal with the three tribes living in a state of mutual need and trading. This was of course until the winter storms started that tore the three tribes apart. Celestia and Luna were never sure what side they were on as they were both different from everypony else. When the leaders of the three tribes came to an accord it looked as though it was over, until the moment when some ponies didn't like the new found camaraderie and began making trouble for all. When the meeting was held and Celestia spoke for her cutie mark everything seemingly went back to normal. The leaders even decided to take the image of the two sisters and use them to create what would become the Equestrian flag, to symbolize love and harmony between all ponyfolk no matter their race. After that incident the three tribes found a certain amount of peace and harmony as Equestria prospered. Celestia grew up into a young mare. As she and her sister grew up they discovered they each had an uncanny connection to the celestial bodies and were able to move them more easily than several unicorns as were previously needed. Celestia found she was able to move the sun without the aid of others. And so she became the shepherd of the sun. This relaxed the three tribes further as they no longer needed to trade and barter and just accepted their duties to help one and other. The two sisters quickly became a beacon of hope and harmony among Equestrians. Celestia brought forth the sun and Luna brought forth the moon. As time passed Celestia notice that a dark shadow was looming from the north. They reached the northern area adorned in crystals they found that a unicorn possessing dark magic known as King Sombra spreading his darkness across all of Equestria. The two sisters used their combined magical powers against this foe and banished him from the world, unfortunately with his last strength he took the great Crystal Empire with him. The success of vanquishing the great evil made Celestia quite pleased, but she was sad that its brilliant light and magic could not shine across Equestria as it once had. She hoped that one day it would return and that it’s brilliance could be shared by all. Upon their return to their home they found the ponies in misery and everything in chaos. While they were saving the world from darkness the spirit of chaos, Discord, seized the opportunity to gain control over Equestria. A crafty one Discord tricked them into becoming resentful of each other to prevent them from effectively opposing him. Finding a drawing her sister did of them as fillies her heart began to swell and showing it to Luna allowed them to mend the rift that had come between them, at least for the time, and they were able to unite to defeat Discord, or so they tried. Unfortunately Discord’s powers of control proved too much for the sisters, and they had to think of another way. Celestia had heard of the legendary Tree of Harmony and the two sisters sought it out in the hopes that it would hold the key to Discord’s defeat. There they obtained the Elements of Harmony and were able to use them to set Discord in stone. The damage that Discord did ran deep between the sisters. Celestia was able to control the darkness that Discord planted in her heart and eventually drive it out completely, but she noticed that something was different about her dear sister. She tried talking to Luna often about her feelings, but Luna became resentful that the ponies relished in the Sun and shunned the night. Celestia, confused by her sisters great change in demeanor. Eventually it came to an impasse and Luna raised the moon to block Celestia’s sun. Celestia pleaded with her sister, knowing this was not truly the sister she knew and loved. To Celestia’s great dismay her sister then became a wicked mare of darkness. They had a great clash and her sister, now Nightmare Moon, nearly defeated her. Reluctantly, Celestia opened the chamber containing the Elements of Harmony and used them against her own sister. With tears in her eyes she turned the great power of the elements onto her sister and banished her to the moon. Equestria maintained a peace for a thousand years, but Celestia still felt guilty of what happened with her sister, and could never fully forgive herself. She always tried to not allow her feelings to interfere with her duties to the people she had come to lead with her sister, she continued to be a beacon of hope and took control of both the sun and moon in her sister’s absence. Over time the pain dulled, but she never forgot.The Summer Sun Celebration became a constant reminder of her having to banish her dear sister, and it was the hardest of days for her, as it was the day she did what she had to do to protect her subjects from darkness eternal. Celestia kept her eye on a particular filly whom she sensed had great arcane potential. When she tried for entrance into the School Celestia had founded for those gifted in the arcane arts, the filly named Twilight Sparkle unleashed a great wave of magic. Celestia was able to calm her down and allow her to regain control. At that moment she knew her impressions were correct of this filly and took her on as an apprentice. Celestia trained her using gentle teachings never being direct, much like she was with most of her subjects. She never wanted to force anyone but rather give them the opportunity to shine. Eventually she would test her pupil with a task that she could not personally involve herself with, the return of her sister who had become Nightmare Moon. For the sake of allowing her pupil to make friends and gain full control of the Elements of Harmony which she had broken connection with when she imprisoned her sister, she sent Twilight to take care of preparations in Ponyville where the representations of the elements lived. Upon the return of Nightmare Moon she allowed herself to be captured to allow her pupil to be able to take care of the problem herself. After her pupil and friends had cleansed her sister of the darkness in her heart, she was finally reunited with her long lost sister after a thousand years, vowing to once again be friends as they had been for so long in the past. Celestia did that several other times, allowing her pupil to take control to teach her leadership, friendship and humility. She didn't leave everything to her pupil of course. There were many things that she took care of herself, like a parasprite infestation in Fillydelphia. Always making decisions using foresight and her vast experience from ruling for a thousand years. Then her old foe, Discord, reappeared. Knowing that Celestia no longer had control over the Elements of Harmony he went after her pupil and friends. She believed in them, but knew he was crafty and would do the same to them as he did to her and Luna, so as a precaution she sent all the letters that Twilight had sent her to remind her of the friendship they had, which would allow them to utilize the Elements of Harmony as she and Luna had done a thousand years before that. Once set into stone once again, peace was once again restored to Equestria again, until a threat was made to Canterlot when her adoptive niece Princess Cadence and the captain of the Royal Guard Shining Armor were to be married. Unbeknownst to her an infiltration had begun already. The changeling queen, Chrysalis had entered the city and began feeding on Shining Armor. Her pupil vehemently tried to convince others of Princess’s Cadence’s evil, but even Celestia was blind to the changeling. When she was proved wrong she went horn to horn with Queen Chrysalis and lost, sending her pupil and friends to gather the Elements of Harmony. They too were captured. Ensnared she thought all was lost when Cadence and Shining Armor’s love repelled the love devouring creatures. She praised her pupil for following her instincts and bringing the truth to light. When the Crystal Empire was returning, which she did not know much about, she decided it was a prime opportunity to test her pupil and sent her to restore the Crystal Empire to it’s former state, impressing upon her the direness of the situation, recounting how darkness in the Empire could affect all of Equestria. When successful she decided it was time to prepare the final two tasks for her pupil reforming Discord and completing Star Swirl the Bearded’s unfinished spell. When she completed the tasks, Celestia was proud to crown her once pupil Equestria’s newest Princess. Character Summary: Many see Celestia as merely the primary ruler of Equestria and the princess of the day. While these things are true, it is not what she chooses to see herself as. She is not just a princess, in fact she prefers to not act as such outside of professional necessity. She is a normal pony with a great sense of humor. At her core she is wise and just, which came from her long life and experiences on the throne of Equestria. She always had a talent for seeing the bright side of a situation of bringing light to ponies, both literally and metaphorically. Leading them with grace and wisdom. With her long life she has learned how to be patient allowing things to come and never rushing into things. She thinks things out and plans everything for the best. There are two sides to her personality, those which she chooses to show the public and what she considers to be her true self. In a professional setting she is always dignified and proper. She carries herself with an air of royalty only befitting a princess. She rules Equestria with foresight and the knowledge and experience she gained over a thousand years of rule. She prefers not to use her great arcane abilities to do anything though. If something must be done she prefers to allow ponies to solve problems themselves or doing it with the help of others, merely acting as a guide or mentor whenever possible. She does what is needed and joins whenever possible, however she knows being a leader is more than doing things for others but teaching ponies how to do things for themselves. For the most part she succeeds, only intervening when absolutely necessary. She tries to be an impartial and fair force for Equestira, maintaining the peace that she has worked so hard to maintain for a thousand years. All that is really not Celestia though, that is her professional, royal self. If anything that is her job persona, which she prefers to step out of as much as possible. She is actually a rather laid back mare with a bit of a mischievous streak, much like her pet Phoenix, Philomina. If people are treating her too much like royalty, she’ll organize a way to spice things up to make things more interesting or even harmlessly prank a pony or two. Naturally she also can take a joke if she herself is on the receiving end. Being able to laugh with the best of them. She doesn’t always prank ponies, but she always does it in good fun. She sees the best in every situation when it comes to those closest to her, even when things seem bad, she knows that the right people can make any situation better. She also has a bit of a sweet tooth, especially for cake which has lead to a few less than flattering pictures. Celestia’s interests are vast and diverse. Her most obvious interest is in the arcane, which is part of the reason why she founded Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns. Not only is she interested in learning the arcane, but also mentoring young fillies and colts in the ways and knowledge of the arcane as well as through their life experiences. She also enjoys all kinds of music, from chamber music to new popular music, she enjoys it all to an extent. She knows all music has a purpose, after all, as lovely and relaxing as chamber music is, it isn't as fun to listen to as popular music. She enjoys fine art, especially those with an extra creative flair that can show off ponies’ inner selves. Then there are books and reading. Though as much as she loves books, what she loves reading most are letters from her subjects, especially those sent to her by her pupil and friends on the magic of friendship. Which would lead to her greatest interest which is in her subjects, taking note of what they might need whether it be land, general aid or guidance. She wishes to learn all she can about her subjects seeking to remember each pony she meets by name.
  19. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Iron Will Sex: Male Age: Mature Species: Minotaur Eye colour: Black with yellow sclera Coat: Cobalt-silver upper half, dark cobalt lower half Mane/Tail: Mohawk and a bull's tail Physique: Extremely top-heavy with an emphasis on pectorals and biceps, pronounced tapering and fairly thin legs, much like a cliche body-builder. Residence: Largely nomadic, but owns housing in Breakbeak Cliffs. Occupation: Motivational coach and showman. Previously bodyguard and bodybuilder. History: Iron Will began life in Equestria out of curiosity – he had heard of these creatures called ponies, and he had the fortune to meet with some of them; most of them were polite enough, some of them were too easily intimidated, but on the whole they struck Iron Will as being interesting enough, and the wanderlust in him was strong enough to get him to make the trek from his home to greater Equestria. At first, he simply acted as an unusual visitor – an oddity, often misunderstood and sometimes feared, and he used this to his advantage. Not as a bully nor a robber, but rather, a bodyguard and a spectacle, showing off where he could for bits and services, impressing those around him with the capacities being a Minotaur lent him. After all, there was no pride or self-respect in being a thug, but he could most certainly feel good about being impressive and protective of those who needed inspiration or assistance. It was fun, to him, to hear ponies cheer and marvel, and as time went on, he started doing more and more showmanship, as a performing muscleman at times, showing off his strength and his courage to face mighty obstacles. He even helped out from time to time, if something very large and heavy needed moving while he happened to be about. But, still, while it was both rewarding and amusing, it wasn't satisfying to him – he knew he could do more, and the idea of being a spectacle was addicting. It was then that the idea of confidence seminars hit him - he could go around, using his impressive stature and booming voice to show off how incredible self-confidence could be! He could rally ponies and inspire them, bringing them up to the level of those around them, with seminars and shows! Yes, it'd be more writing and less lifting heavy things, but that was fine with him. Slogans simply came as part and parcel with the showmanship – he'd been doing that sort of thing for years! So, he tours Equestria - Iron Will's the name, trainin' ponies is his game! His talents, he uses out of a desire to do good, but still he keeps to his honesty and integrity, trying to instill both confidence and self-respect in those ponies that need it. Still, he keeps himself in check, and makes sure to keep to his promises - if you don't keep your word, you're out of the herd! Character Summary: Iron Will is no shouting simpleton, nor a basic boisterous boasting bullheaded brute. Iron Will is, for all his volume and bluster, a creature of both professionalism and standards. He is more clever than his initial impressions may let on, and more reasonable than his imposing stature and excessive volume may imply. That is not to say he is the paragon of civility and manners hidden in a brusque and burly shell, but he is nevertheless civil and personable in his own way. Though he is very much focused on being able to maintain self-respect and confidence, he is also rather concerned with life being reasonably 'fair', as well as maintaining a level of his own discipline. Of course, his practises aren't all that define him. Off the stage, he is the life of any party that suits him - a high-octane, muscle and mayhem sort of guy with a love for thrusting himself forward into the exciting and the unknown. Though he can get a little carried away at times, it's never by malice or in anger; his immense size and strength do him few favors when he's barelling into a doorway not quite his size, or slamming down a massive fist where only hooves were meant to tread. Though he's no gentle giant, he's still a rather even-tempered fellow, and seldom does he bully his way out of a situation that he feels responsible for. As for how he spends his time? Showing off and testing his limits, like any good high-energy showman would! Skydiving? Get the parachutes! Cliff-climbing? Absolutely! Boxing with gryphons? Get the pads on, featherheads! Rock concerts? Throw up the horns and scream! Not unlike a few ponies, Iron Will simply wasn't built with anything between 'sleeping' and 'full blast' on his energy dials. Iron Will puts out energy until he runs out of fuel, takes a few naps, and then gets back on his hooves for more. He also enjoys carpentry from time to time - after all, everyone needs a hobby, and there's a certain satisfaction to be had in making something useful with your own two hands.
  20. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria RP - Tier 1 Name: Mi Amore Cadenza, but calls herself Cadence. Sex: Female Age: Mare Species: Alicorn (born as an earth pony) Eye Color: Purple Coat: Light pink, with her wings tipped in purple. Mane/Tail: Cadence’s mane and tail features a tricolor streak pattern of purple, dark rose, and pale gold. Both her mane and tail are kept long and curled at the ends. Physique: Taller and more slender than the average mare. Residence: Crystal Empire Occupation: Princess of the Crystal Empire Cutie Mark: Cadence’s cutie mark is a light blue, multi-faceted crystal heart cradled by two gold lace patterns. This elaborate cutie mark symbolizes both her calling as a princess and her highly empathic personality, which enables her to spread the power of love wherever she goes. One thing that captivated the attention of young Cadence was the nature of how ponies bond; how they acted around each other and what made them grow closer to one another. Something the filly noticed during her observations was the odd, dullish way her parents treated each other compared to younger couples. Sure, her mother and father always talked to each other cordially and always did what they could to please their spouse, but something felt missing. It was as if they… the filly’s parents weren’t actually excited to be together. As a matter of fact, Cadence perceived this phenomenon among a number of her friends’ own moms and dads throughout her hometown of Roam. Her mind racing, little Cadence used every resource available to a filly of Roam to figure out the riddle of “loveless love”. A week or so later, the pink filly believed she arrived at the answer; that her parents’ lives had become so samey-samey that little actual love was exchanged between the couple. But Cadence also learned of something else; that the same emotions of fear and heightened awareness felt by ponies during times of distress nearly matched those who were in the first stages of falling in love. It took some advice from a knowledgeable adult or two, but Cadence’s developing mind conjured up a devious scheme to make her parents, and those of her friends, to make them all feel those same sort of emotions so that they’d fall in love all over again. Cadence’s plan: to convince her’s and her friends’ parents to participate in the next upcoming Eponnine Hike for charity. The filly chose this event because the hike took trekkers through extremely-rough mountain trails, ensuring that every couple would have to work together to get through the ordeal. Yet because Cadence kept her ultimate intentions a secret, the other adults did not necessarily grasp what the filly wanted them to do. At the Hike’s finish line, nearly everypony the filly saw passing by seemed more physically drained than anything else. When it all seemed like a huge waste of time, along came Cadence’s parents… who beamed like no tomorrow. As it turned out, the novelty and adversity of the situation their daughter put them in encouraged the two to work together as a team and to enjoy the natural sights around them, rekindling their relationship in the process. Overjoyed over her small but very significant victory for love, a cutie mark formed on Cadence’s flank while she ran over to give her mom and dad a welcome back hug. For most other ponies, the cutie mark story would have ended right there. Not so for Cadence, whose hitherto-unrealized empathetic nature made her experience a sort of… “love overload”. So immersed in love was the young girl at that exact moment that she felt a blissful surge flow through her entire body. Before anypony knew what was happening, Cadence disappeared in a flash as if the little earth pony filly somehow whisked herself to another dimension. When she finally reappeared back in the temporal world… she was no longer a mere filly… or an earth pony for that matter. It seemed that not only had Cadence communed with Princess Celestia herself in the ethereal world, but that Cadence’s potential aptitude to spread love to everypony made her worthy of becoming an alicorn princess! History: Back in her earliest years, Mi Amore Cadenza of Roam would probably have been among the last fillies that anypony would expect to become a princess. The pink earth pony filly was a friendly child by all accounts, and not apparently remarkable other than being a notorious free-spirit. Mi Amore ignored her chores in favor of running off with friends, had trouble concentrating on schoolwork, and insisted on being called Cadence instead of the fancier name given by her parents. But oddly enough, what little Cadence liked to do most of all was watching other ponies; sometimes she’d observe the schoolyard, and other times she spied on crowds waltzing through Roam’s touristy areas. In time, this activity morphed into taking a greater interest in strengthening the bonds of friendship and love forged by everypony, and her successive attempts to carry out her desire ultimately culminated in the event that earned Cadence both her cutie mark and crown. Being a princess was not something Cadence frequently dreamed of becoming before her first meeting with Celestia… which some would say is one of the most important qualities a princess could have. Although the new alicorn expressed severe misgivings that she could carry such an important burden, the new princess was inevitably persuaded that she could do wonderful things for Equestria by opening the hearts of others to the power of love. Cadence had absolutely no idea what those wonderful things would be, but the filly chose to leave her old life in Roam behind to learn under the watchful eye of Princess Celestia in Canterlot. The next few years for Princess Cadence proved to be a rather awkward time; aside from struggling to learn the finer aspects of royal administration, the maturing filly also had to adjust to her new physical changes brought about by the alicorn transformation. Sitting in a magic kindergarten classroom full of younger students felt rather awkward at times for Cadence, and her first flying attempts amounted to what could be charitably described as “falling with style”. Things got better for Cadence as time passed by; her pegasus magic only developed to a basic level, but the princess’s unusual aptitude for love-based unicorn spells earned her placement in Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns. Administrative tasks… still confounded the princess, but she had a great knack for personally resolving disputes between feuding ponies and turning them into close friends. Throughout this time, what drove the adolescent alicorn most to succeed was the devotion she received from her many admirers; particularly younger fillies and colts. Princess Cadence always kept in mind how much children looked up to royal ponies like herself; for all the support Cadence earned from them, she’d return the favor tenfold through her nurturing. Above all else, the princess of love made sure to remind each child she met of their uniqueness and potential, and to always be the most amazing friend anypony could find. Noting how emotionally symbiotic such relationships could be, the older filly spent much of her free time providing kids with kindness and care through charity work, after school programs, and foalsitting. It was through Princess Cadence’s foalsitting job that she met two of the most important ponies in her life. Of all the foals she watched over, the alicorn found herself cherishing the most an intellectually curious unicorn filly by the name of Twilight Sparkle, whom Cadence couldn’t help but see in Twi shades of her own emotionally curious self. Cadence regarded befriending Twilight as one of her greatest accomplishments of her adolescent years, for the filly had previously shunned the friendship of all others save for that of her older brother, Shining Armor. The young mare grew a massive crush on Shining Armor who she felt exemplified the ideal stallion; smart, brave, passionate, and pretty handsome to boot! Although the flowery delusions of immaturity and the shifting winds of life prevented a long-term romantic relationship from truly blossoming during their later adolescence, Cadence and Shining Armor remained good friends even as the two embarked on their separate paths of adult life. Cadence by necessity ended up spending less time with children as she warmed her way into the role of Royal Arbitrator, her job being to officially settle disputes and encourage the opposing parties to make amends. The princess’s duties required her to travel all over Equestria, leaving her little time to spend socially back in Canterlot. Shining Armor meanwhile rose to the rank of Captain in the Royal Equestrian Army; with all the enormous responsibilities it entailed as well; Cadence saw the stallion as a relatable kindred spirit more than ever. Close friendship then turned into deep romantic affection, and the couple’s courtship didn’t last long before it transformed further into an engagement. Princess Cadence’s marriage to Captain Armor completely changed her life… but in a way that she never could have predicted. Just before the wedding was to take place, the nefarious changeling Queen Chrysalis kidnapped Cadence and masqueraded as the bride-to-be in a plot to harvest love for her minions. When all seemed lost, when even Cadence’s rescue by a now grown-up Twilight Sparkle failed to forestall the attack on Canterlot, the bride knew she only had one measure left. Until that moment, even somepony like Cadence who regularly espoused the virtues of love would have believed it a foolish sentiment that love alone could vanquish a powerful foe. Yet knowing that Queen Chrysalis could utilize the love she stole from Shining Armor to her advantage, Cadence magically poured every ounce of affection she had for Shining Armor to give her soulmate enough strength to cast the marauding changelings out of Canterlot. From that point on, the alicorn finally grasped the true level of her capabilities; that love in and of itself was one of the most powerful forces in all of existence, and that it would be up to her and her new husband to champion that element for the good of all ponykind. Feeling in her heart that other great challenges might be in store for her, Princess Cadence intensified efforts to improve her magical and physical abilities. That decision proved to be incredibly wise, for she and her husband were shortly called upon to protect the reemerged Crystal Empire from the dark shadow of King Sombra. For several days and nights, Cadence labored without adequate food and rest to maintain the Empire’s magical shield at all times. This shield lasted long enough for the Crystal Heart to be recovered from its hiding spot; with priceless help from Shining Armor, the ailing alicorn ensured that Sombra didn’t seize the Heart for himself, enabling the ponies of the Crystal Empire to vanquish their tyrant with love and light. For her gallantry and leadership, the crystal ponies hailed Princess Cadence as their new princess, and so the alicorn rules the Empire to this day with a nurturing heart and the assistance of her loving knight in shining armor. All in all, the alicorn has come a long way from simpler days when she only sought to have her parents appreciate each other more..... Character Summary: Princess Cadence never did acquire a taste for personally handling government administration. The alicorn’s life experiences give Cadence the belief that her primary royal duties as the primary embodiment of the Crystal Empire are interacting with her subjects, entertaining important dignitaries, and travelling to scenes of major crises in order to help out on the scene. The princess prefers leaving day-to-day governance to trusted and qualified bureaucrats; Cadence feels that just because she saved the Empire in its hour of need doesn’t mean she has the right to heavily intervene in her subjects’ affairs. But above all, the royal mare believes that although a princess should be cordial when the occasion calls for it, she should feel approachable to anypony at all other times. Aside from rarely bringing a guard detail with her when out and about, the alicorn’s efforts to initiate conversation with subjects are always done in a casual manner. As one would expect of an alicorn princess, Princess Cadence wields a significant level of magical power. Through years of constant practice, the royal mare is now perhaps the world’s greatest practitioner of love-based spells. These magic spells range from epic feats such as powering a city-protecting shield to mundane acts like unhardening a pony’s heart to another’s love. Cadence from time to time amuses herself by using her powers to defuse petty arguments, but she of ponies knows that spells are no substitute for empathy and everyday acts of kindness. By imploring others to understand and relate to their fellow ponies, even their most bitter rivals, the princess feels that she’s doing the best thing possible to spend light throughout the land. If anypony asks the alicorn how her marriage with Shining Armor is going, Cadence would be the last pony to dare paint a sugarcoated picture of saccharine conflict-free happiness. Marriage is in fact very hard work, and the princess thus treats hers accordingly. Cadence finds time when she can to make her husband feel cherished; sometimes she’ll serenade Shining with her singing (which is quite good considering she sang for the school choir), other times she makes the occasional hoofmade gift and meal (which turns out awful, as cooking and craftsmareship are not the alicorn’s strong points), and always always provide her love with physical displays of affection when called for. To make sure Cadence’s marriage stays out of a rut, the princess constantly insists on trying new activities with Shining Armor to take them out of their comfort zone and introduce new novelty in their marriage. Should she end up in a verbal argument with Shining, the mare will under no circumstance lash out in anger or derail the fight by bringing up nonsequitur grievances. And finally, Cadence realizes that sometimes a stallion simply needs time and space to himself, and so she’ll never show possessiveness towards her husband. The other ponies that Cadence feels closest to the most besides her husband are Twilight Sparkle and Princess Celestia. Ever since being crowned, Cadence had always regarded the wise Celestia as an adoptive aunt, and would not hesitate to call upon her “auntie” for advice if needed. And while Cadence always held Twilight in high esteem since they first met, Cadence’s affection for her sister-in-law has grown significantly as the two mares faced multiple perils together. As for her other close friends, the princess inevitably prefers the company of those who are smart, civically/socially active, and above all else, friendly and fun-loving to all. Regardless of their particular talent, ponies who match Cadence’s devotion to serving others and her personality stand the best chance of forging lasting friendships with the pink alicorn. Even though Cadence as a little foal did not go through a period of playing out stereotypical princess activities, years of entertaining the fantasies of fillies she foalsat have left their mark. Now burdened with the enormous task of helping to rule the Crystal Empire, the princess finds increased comfort in the nostalgia of hosting tea parties for her closest friends and drooling over the latest fashions (despite sticking to conservative spending habits). Whenever she can, Cadence takes frequent visits to the spa to rejuvenate their body, and would recommend that everypony else does the same. Yet perhaps most importantly of all for her psyche, the princess indulges time-to-time in various childish activities. Whether by playing silly board games or repeating old nursery rhymes to her ex-charges (at least the ones not embarrassed to go along with it), Princess Cadence feels deep down that the day she becomes “old” is the day she thinks herself too mature for playtime. Ponies who wish to meet Princess Cadence socially outside of a ball have three ideal places to find her. The first two locations are obstinately the Crystal Empire’s spas and boutiques. The third happens to be the local library, where Cadence endeavors on a frequent basis to learn more about the vast land she now rules over, and also the emphatic crystal ponies that inhabit them. There have been times actually when Cadence herself wonders if one of her ancestors was a crystal pony. It could explain why she was always so interested in understanding the emotions of other ponies, although it’s extremely doubtful she can trace her ancestry back a thousand years. Princess Cadence currently can’t envision a life more perfect than the one she already has. The royal mare has the adoration of her subjects, the love of a fabulous husband, and the companionship of many dear friends. Just about the only other thing Cadence would like to have eventually are foals of her own to raise and cherish. She’s going to have to talk to Shining Armor about that soon.....
  21. Hello everypony! I don't post very often on this blog, but I'd like to address a subject that very near and dear to my heart as a roleplayer on Canterlot.com: Background/Tier 3 Cast Characters! I know that as a roleplayer, naturally folks want to apply for the more popular FiM Cast Characters such as the Mane 6, the Princesses, etc, but to me, there's no greater joy or challenge than to roleplay with a background cast character. Why? Because (1) their history and personality are, for the most part, a blank slate! This allows those who would apply for them much leeway in their design. In this way, a user can take an ordinary 'humdrum' background character and give it a whole new life! For example, I applied for and receive the character known as Pigpen (a.k.a. the 'Too Smelly' pony in 'The Perfect Stallion' song from the Hearts and Hooves Day episode) and gave him a job (sanitation engineer) a personality (very nice and generous) and even a business to own (his own junkyard/antique shoppe). To me, he's as much fun to roleplay with as Granny Smith (another one of my cast characters). Tier 3 Cast Characters can be a lot of fun! First of all, there's PLENTY of them that are available, as opposed to the higher level Tier 2 or Tier 1 characters that don't often become available to apply for. Second, since most folks might not apply for the SAME Tier 3 Character, chances are if you have a strong application, you're more likely to win them unopposed! So why not give a Tier 3 Cast Character a try! I love all of mine: Sheriff Silverstar, Flim, Flam, Mr. Waddle, Uncle Apple Strudel, Pigpen, Dr. Stable and Ms. Harshwhinney! There are many, many others who are available and waiting to be 'brought to life' by someone, that someone could be YOU! To learn more about Tier 3 (and other) Cast Characters, click here! Please consider applying for background characters. They all have their own 'stories' that are begging to be told!
  22. Role Playing Type: World of Equestria Name: Zecora Sex: Female Age: Mare Species: Zebra Eye Color: Turquoise Coat: Light Grey with unique Dark Grey stripe markings and Black hooves Mane/ Tail: Her mane is white and black in a mohawk style while her tail is Light Grey and Dark Grey with a simple styling. Physique: Zecora has a typical Zebra body. She often is seen wearing jewelry including earrings, neck rings, and leg rings. Residence: Zecora lives in her hut which is a hollowed out tree in the Everfree Forest. Occupation: Herbalist and Potion Maker Cutie Mark: A spiral pattern with surrounding triangles, a tribal symbol representing well-being. Zecora received her mark one day when a friend injured her leg. At that time the zebra had been studying making potions but she had yet to actually give one of her concoctions to another zebra due to her worry that something would go wrong as potion making was a very specific and dangerous process. Yet with her friend hurt and the town herbalist was away in another part of the Veld, Zecora mustered up the courage to make a healing salve which she immediately applied to the zebra’s wounded leg. The medicine helped to sooth the pain and aid in the healing process, much to the relief of Zecora and her friend. History: Zecora was born and raised in the ancient city of Boma, located in the middle of the Veld region of Unyasi. Since the town is a major cultural hub where both goods and knowledge are exchanged, the young zebra was always surrounded my new things to learn and discover. Her parents were very loving and caring, encouraging her to learn all that she could. She would read every book she could get her hooves on and would ask many zebra and even some non-zebra who visited her town about their lives and occupations. It was upon speaking with the town’s herbalist that peaked her interest of herbs and potions and what started her on the path that led to getting her cutie mark. After finding her talent, Zecora decided that she wanted to explore the lands outside of Unyasi where the ponies lived. With her parents’ blessing she started on her journey to Equestria. There she visited the various towns and cities, but none suited her as a good place to live as they were too big and crowded for her taste. She began to feel homesick, longing for the open grasslands of the Veld and of home. After a long journey through the land, she found a very mysterious place called the Everfree Forest, a place that was not controlled by ponies leaving it wild and in the case of many ponies dangerous. She found a hollowed out tree and set her house there as she studied the local flora and fauna and began to make potions. Unfortunately her presence and her reclusive nature made ponies think that she was evil. It wasn’t through a mishap involving six mares, a filly, and Poison Joke that made ponies realize that she wasn’t bad after all and encouraged her to visit Ponyville and mingle with the ponies more. Recently Zecora has become a much respected member in Ponyville, offering her wisdom and her skills as an herbalist and potion maker to help any sick or injured ponies. In particular she helped a filly named Apple Bloom who tried using a zebra’s potion to get her cutie mark by creating a counter medicine as well as teaching Twilight new magic. Through all her experiences, Zecora cherishes where she came from and the lessons she learned there while she looks forwards to new experiences in her new home. Character Summary: Zecora is a very compassionate zebra, willing to lend a helping hoof to anypony in need whether it means giving her time, energy, resources, or even knowledge to help others. At first she was a little reclusive, but she has opened up more to ponies especially in nearby Ponyville. She is not a very materialistic zebra, as seen when she receives a gem from Spike in exchange for helping him take care of several pets only to turn around and donates it to a Filly Scout. The zebra is known to often speak in a rhyming dialogue. It is unclear whether this is something related to the dialect of the Veld in Unyasi or if she prefers to speak this way, but most who speak with her seems to understand what she is saying clearly. She is also a patient individual, like when teaching Twilight Sparkle new magic and waiting for Apple Bloom to tell the truth about what happened to the zebra’s Heart’s desire flower. Rarely does the zebra become upset, except when ponies are untruthful, reckless with her things, or are judgmental towards each other. Even when such cases happen as long as the guilty party is willing to apologize and not repeat the same mistakes, she can easily forgive them. Zecora is very knowledgeable due to her never-ending desire to learn new things and share what she knows with others. In particular, she has great knowledge of the local flora and fauna, especially herbs. She can help identify a certain plant or animal and combine items found in nature into remedies like potions or salves, often to heal. She also possesses a certain degree of magical ability tied to nature like producing water in a cup. Her magic is strengthened through meditation which also aids in calming her. In addition to learning and making potions, Zecora likes the outdoors, telling stories about her homeland and travels, and meeting new ponies and other species. Her hut is located withing a hollowed out tree in the Everfree Forest and consists of a main room an an smaller area where che sleeps. In the main rooom there are shelves lining the walls with different potions and salves as well as components to make new ones, and in the center on the room is a large cauldron.Her place is now very ornate or showy as it contains only a few bare essentials and some mementos of home like two masks that symbolizing saying “Hello” and “Welcome.” She is also a very orderly zebra who keeps her hut clean and organized. Overall, Zecora seeks to continue what she has been doing since first journeying to Ponyville but learning all she can and meeting and helping as many ponies that she can.
  23. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Scootaloo (nicknamed “Scoots” or “Squirt” but don’t call her “Chicken”) Sex: Female Age: Filly Species: Pegasus Eye Color: Varying shades of Purple Coat: A Mango Orange Mane/Tail: Magenta – Her mane is cut fairly short, and both her mane and tail are a little unkempt. Physique: Scootaloo has a typical filly’s body compared to her friends and fellow classmates. Her wings have not fully developed which makes flying difficult. While riding her scooter, Scootaloo is typically seen wearing her purple helmet with two white stripes. Residence: Ponyville Occupation: Student and Member of the Cutie Mark Crusaders Cutie Mark: Scootaloo has yet to receive her cutie mark. History: Scootaloo was born to two loving parents who showered her with as much love and affection as they could upon the filly. Even at a young age, the orange Pegasus wondered what life would be like having a cool older sister who could teach her things as she grew up. Unfortunately Scootaloo was the only pony in her family besides of course her parents, making her dream just a mere fantasy. Her parents knew that their filly was unique as she seemed to reject the more stereotypical girly things in favor of things like the outdoors, competing in races and sports with others. This made her seem awkward in the eyes of some of her peers, but she took it all in stride in favor of having fun. At her birthday Scootaloo received perhaps the greatest gift she ever had from her parents, a blue scooter with red wheels. From that day on the filly and her ride were inseparable as she used it more often to go places with than by trotting or galloping. After a time Scootaloo desired to find a way to go faster and to try out more elaborate stunts on her scooter. Seeing how other Pegasai used their wings to fly, she thought that perhaps she could use her wings to propel her when she was on her ride. After flapping her wings as hard as she could, she learned that not only could she now move on her scooter without needing her hooves or a hill to go, she could also achieve even faster speeds when riding. This allowed her to try out more stunts of hers and as a side effect more crashes. Yet despite any setbacks, she continues to perform stunts. One day when Scootaloo was riding her scooter, she caught sight of a strange rainbow flying through the sky. Upon a closer look, she found that it was a Pegasus who was creating the rainbow, performing all sorts of stunts in the sky that the orange filly could only dream of doing. She gathered up the courage and finally greeted the Pegasus who introduced herself as Rainbow Dash. From that day on Scootaloo admired the Pegasus and sought to emulate her as much as she could in the hopes that when she grew up she would be just like her as well as try to learn from Rainbow Dash as much as Scootaloo could. Her devotion to the rainbow manned pony went as far as to create a club in honor of Rainbow Dash and celebrating her awesomeness. Despite her desire to be like Rainbow Dash, Scootaloo had one problem that prevented her from being like her idol. Her wings unfortunately haven’t fully developed yet to allow her to fly, something that she wishes to be able to do quite possibly as much as she wants to find her mark. This desire is fueled by the fact that many of her Pegasus classmates are already flying and that by learning to fly she could perhaps spend more time with Rainbow Dash. Although she tries to make it like it isn’t a big deal, deep down Scootaloo feels grounded, unable to achieve her dreams as being an awesome flyer like her idol. Her inability to fly combined with not having her cutie mark yet has made Scootaloo the target of some bullies in her class, namely Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon. Despite this she does fairly well in school and even met two other fillies, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, who lack cutie marks themselves. The three decided to form a club to discover their talent together, hoping to get their marks all at once. Even though they have been unsuccessful thus far, the three have had fun adventures with each other and became good friends. Recently Scootaloo, who tried to prove herself to her friends, classmates, and Rainbow Dash faced several nightmares while on a camping trip. After meeting a certain Princess of the night in one nightmare and being rescued by Rainbow Dash, she confessed how she gets scared sometimes as well as admitting how she wanted Rainbow Dash to be like her sister. After the rainbow manned Pegasus confessed how she used to be scared when she was Scootaloo’s age and agreed to take the filly under her wing, Scootaloo was happy that she had not only found a pony that could be like an older sister to her but also that she felt confident enough that she didn’t have to prove anything to Rainbow Dash. All she has to be is her friend and that's really all Scootaloo ever wanted. Character Summary: Scootaloo is a filly who likes to prove to others how awesome she is. While she’s not boastful, the orange Pegasus seeks to prove her mettle to others by the way she acts and the things that she does. She is a bit of a tomboy who prefers sports and competition to frilly girly things as she feels these are “uncool.” In particular, Scootaloo prefers the extreme sports like riding a zip line or hiking through the Everfree Forest as a means to not only do fun and exciting things but to perhaps get her cutie mark in doing something awesome. She also is not a fan of big displays of emotions which she calls “mushy stuff” although sometimes gives in to these events like when she tried to help Cheerilee fall in love with Big Macintosh. Her attempts to prove herself stem from meeting Rainbow Dash and how she seeks to be cool like her. In her mind Scootaloo used to think that the rainbow manned Pegasus was a strong pony who showed few if any faults and thus sought to mirror that perception with her. After learning how Rainbow Dash was afraid of things as a filly, Scootaloo has learned to not judge herself too harshly and to accept herself as whom she was with both flaws and positive qualities. Scootaloo is very loyal to her friends and seeks to help her fellow Crusaders in any way she can. She is very protective of them especially when confronting bullies as Scootaloo knows what it feels like being bullied due to her inability to fly and not having her cutie mark. She is still a little downtrodden not being able to fly beyond hovering in the air for a while, especially when others bring it up to her, but she tries to not feel upset and hopes one day she can fly like the others. In addition to her interests in preforming stunts on her scooter, having fun with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, and playing sports, Scootaloo is also good at dancing and playing the piano although looks at these as hobbies instead as potential avenues of getting her cutie mark. Scootaloo seeks to continue what she has been doing before with helping her friends get their cutie marks, learning to fly, having fun, and developing a closer friendship with Rainbow Dash. One thing is for certain, Scootaloo seeks to do all these things with her own cool style!
  24. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Diamond Dazzle Tiara Sex: Female Age: Young filly Species: Earth pony Eye colour: Bright blue Coat: Her coat is a light purple color Mane/Tail: Her mane and tail are two-toned, white striped with violet. They are styled loosely into a gentle curl. She almost invariably is found with a wire tiara, similar in shape to her cutie mark atop her head. Physique: About average for a filly her age. Residence: Ponyville Occupation: Student Cutie Mark: Her cutie mark is a blue wire tiara with circular ends. It represents her domineering nature and concern for appearances. Prior to getting her cutie mark, if one would have asked her if she was concerned with getting it, she would have denied as much adamantly. In truth, not having her cutie mark left the young Diamond feeling quite anxious and distraught, especially once her best friend Silver Spoon acquired hers. To everyone at school she either played cool or offered the odd offhand snide comment when her blank flank was pointed out, but there was no denying that more than anything else she wanted it to appear and appear soon. The problem was that she had no idea where to even start. Diamond Tiara's parents tended to buy her pretty much whatever she wanted, but she was a fickle child; passionate about something one moment, but then done with it the next. As this was the case, she didn't really have many hobbies or interests to explore. At a loss on her own and unable to face her friends on the matter, she decided to go to her parents with her concerns. Understanding what she was facing and seeing how it troubled her, Diamond's parents did their very best to guide the filly toward a cutie mark, encouraging her toward a number of different hobbies and activities, but nothing stuck. One day, as her parents found themselves running distressingly low on viable, not lame suggestions, Diamond found herself wrought with frustration. In a pout, she went off and shut herself in her room to cry. Her parents tried their best to console her, but Diamond refused to show her face or listen. It wasn't until her parents offered to do whatever she wanted if she'd just be reasonable that she started to listen. To test them, Diamond Tiara decided to ask for something big and requested to be taken to the most expensive boutiques in Manehattan and allowed to buy whatever she pleased. Somewhat to her surprise, her parents agreed. The family soon took a vacation to Manehattan, and while there her parents agreed to buy for her anything she wanted from any of the boutiques there. Diamond spent hours in the shops, trying on all sorts of dresses and accessories, but, fickle as ever, nothing called out to her. Many of the things were lovely, but as the one thing she would be taking home with her to Ponyville, none of the things seemed like they would do. Just like in finding her calling and her cutie mark, it seemed as if nothing would stick and she was tempted to give up until she saw something out of the corner of her eye. It was a painted wire tiara with a few rounded semi-precious gemstones fixed to it. An inexpensive piece of jewelry, it sat in a display window of a small, out of the way lower end boutique. Diamond wasn't sure why, but it was what was she was looking for and she demanded her parents buy it for her, which they did gladly. A confidence swelled in Diamond Tiara as she put it on her head. She wasn't sure why, but she felt good, like she had control. It was in that moment that her cutie mark finally did appear. History: Diamond Tiara was born in Ponyville, daughter of local entrepreneurial tycoon Filthy Rich, owner of Rich's Barnyard Bargains, a chain of highly successful bulk retail shops. Due to her father's success, the family was quite well off and as such Diamond lived a fairly privileged life for a foal in Ponyville. In their efforts to do well for their daughter, her parents did on occasion spoil their daughter who did not shy away from making demands. As the filly grew she in turn became something of a bully and a snob. She was a child who enjoyed having things her way, and she was not quiet when it came to making this known. As such, most of the other foals kept their distance. Eventually she would find one good friend in Silver Spoon, but her often bratty and commanding attitude meant most of the other foals who got close only did because they felt threatened. This sentiment only increased when Diamond Tiara found her cutie mark. In the wake of hercute-ceañera, Diamond and Silver began to openly mock the remaining blank flanks in their class at school, something she continues to enjoy. Diamond Tiara goes to school in Ponyville where she is taught by Miss Cheerilee. A good student, she studies hard so as she can show up the other students and suck up to her teacher. Perhaps because of this, she was chosen at one point to be editor-in-chief of the school paper, the Foal Free Press, a position she enjoyed fervently until her editorial decisions lead to controversy and Cheerilee ultimately concluded she had allowed too much power to a new editor and demoted her to printing press. Unsatisfied with this turn of events, Diamond Tiara quit the paper shortly after this. Character Summary: Diamond Tiara is a very particular foal. She has a very strong, assertive personality. She is quite bold and opinionated for her age and never afraid to take charge or speak her mind. She also has a lot of fervent passion for what she does; when she sets herself to a task, she feels compelled to put her very all into and do it well. She is willful and relatively clever when she puts her mind to it. She is, however, very much self-absorbed. She is vain and often controlling or manipulative. She is exceedingly stubborn and detests not getting her way, and can get temperamental or even form grudges when she doesn't. She is a relatively callous filly, not so concerned with the feelings of others but prone to more than occasional jealousy. Moreover, she is very fickle; while she puts a lot of passion behind the things she does do, she can just as easily get bored of them and move on at a moment's notice, especially if it seems poised not to go her way or be worth her time. She is also, on occasion, somewhat short sighted. As she enjoys feeling superior to others, she is known to tease others or make trouble for them and amuses herself by laughing at the results with Silver Spoon. Diamond Tiara doesn't have too many hobbies in addition to her mischief, as she's not prone to stay with anything very long. She has some interest in fashion and for shopping for nice things, but actually puts more of her free time at home toward studying than anything else. In terms of important relationships, Diamond Tiara values her best friend Silver Spoon more than she'd likely admit. Though at first considering her something of a follower, she is now thankful to have her along for her mischief, as none of it would be very much fun without her. When it comes to her other classmates, the Cutie Mark Crusaders, her behavior toward them does not stem from hatred or spite as much as a need to express her dominance and how she herself is beyond that hard part in her life. She does think some of the stuff they do is genuinely lame though, but on occasion a small and always silent part of her thinks it looks fun. Meanwhile, with her teacher, Diamond tries to leave good impressions as much as she is able and toward her father she has nothing but the deepest pride, even when he forces her to do something she perceives as lame.
  25. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Princess Luna Sex: Female Age: Mare Species: Alicorn Eye color: Teal Coat: Dark Sapphire blue, has black snowcap pelt pattern on her flanks Mane/Tail: Cobalt blue with light azure; transparent, glistens, and maintains a constant magical stance Physique: Tall, but shorter than Celestia; long profile in both body and face, has large wings; wears dark cerulean crown, a peytral around her neck of the same color that features her cutie mark emblem, and light grayish blue hoof guards Residence: Royal palace in Canterlot Occupation: Princess of the night by sky (raises and lowers the moon daily), and by dreams (protector in the dreamscape realm) Cutie Mark: White moon crescent Luna received her cutie mark after she started taking duties for the nighttime sky, which included raising the moon, phasing it over time, and lifting the stars. But even when she would use her magic to manipulate the sky, she did not obtain her mark immediately. Instead, a dark rash-looking mark appeared on her haunches. After a few nights of the mark being persistent, Luna was afraid it might be a bad omen. One night, after she had raised the moon and stars, she traveled through dreamscape to find a sailor pony who was dreaming of being lost at sea. When she came to him, she appeared as an entity in the sky, much like the moon. Its shape and glow illuminated the sky and gave wisdom to the pony and he was able to find his way home. When Luna left the dreamscape, her cutie mark was then revealed. It was a bright moon crescent contrasting against the darkened area on her pelt, a pattern on her pelt she has carried ever since. The marking symbolizes not only her controlling of the moon, but also the guidance she can bring to her subjects through dreams and otherwise. History: Luna's past is trademarked by her resentment that occurred a thousand years ago when the bitterness inside of her transformed her into Nightmare Moon. Her sister used the elements of harmony on her and banished her. After the banishment, Nightmare Moon returned but was defeated by the elements of harmony once again by Twilight Sparkle and her friends. But this time, Nightmare Moon was removed from Luna and she faced a sisterly confrontation with Celestia. After Luna was reunited with her sister and her kingdom, her magical power slowly returned and she started taking up her old responsibilities as Princess of the night again. Princess Luna's return was not welcomed by everypony, however. Luna's old way of speaking and tradition caused her to come off intimidating to her subjects. But over time, she was able to gain trust from the citizens of Equestria as well as remain a staple for Nightmare Night, a traditional event held during the night that is themed with scary stories and festivities of seasonal fun. Luna has had to adapt to speaking more softly and conform to more friendly-sounding ways of communicating. When the Crystal Empire returned, Luna held doubt in Twilight Sparkle's ability to contain King Sombra and keep the Crystal Empire from disappearing like it did before. Twice she asked her sister if she would go and help, but it remained to represent a test for the purple unicorn. At the concluding success of the Crystal Empire's safety, Luna agreed with her sister that Twilight would be ready for the next step towards royalty. Character Summary: Luna is the younger sister of Princess Celestia. Before the events of Nightmare Moon's banishment, the sisters had already established a close relationship, a bond that was able to use the elements of harmony. After Luna came back from banishment, Celestia forgave Luna and offered her a renewed friendship. Today, even though Luna's past has caused a lack of trust among some of her subjects, Luna's sister remains as her primary influence. Luna never takes Celestia's love for granted, and trusts her completely. As Luna rehabilitated to her Princess roles, she has been known to meet ponies in their dreams, and help protect them from their fears, but more importantly, help them learn ways to live better once they awake. She does not prevent nightmares from happening, but she will aide the experience to her subjects who need the help. Luna has the ability to communicate telepathically to her subjects by way of tiny messages placed in their subconscious while they are sleeping. In this, Princess Luna has found a very surprisingly effective way of connecting with her subjects, as she feared that ponies would only see her in their dreams as a nightmare. Luna normally approaches the dreamers calmly, and tries to give them peace of mind. This is so that she can impart knowledge to them while they are comforted by her presence. This is especially true with foals' dreams, who are more likely to experience nightmares that frighten them after they awake. Her goal is that her interceptions will help ponies become braver, stronger, and happier. Luna enjoys her service in the dreamscape, but often times is haunted by her past nightmares. When the elements were reignited by Twilight Sparkle, Luna's redemption became the result of Twilight's ability to learn friendship and wield the magic that it creates. Luna owes her this redemption and the chance to return to her sister's side at the throne. Now that Twilight is a princess, Luna is supportive of her. But she lacks confidence in her own status and she occasionally finds herself believing that she owes the Equestrian ponies something more for her past malice, and that her role in the kingdom is not important. Nightmare Night is a social event in Equestria, in which ponies celebrate the nighttime with scary stories, music, dancing, games, and candy. This event, purely exists based on the legend of Nightmare Moon's return, and the stories ponies told during Luna's banishment. Though there was a time where she was, Luna no longer considers this holiday insulting to her crown and openly invites ponies to celebrate the night. She embraces fun and has the willingness to entertain as a scary monster that, as the fabled story prevails, is coming to gobble them up. Luna especially feels its importance as it allows her to connect with the younger generations of Equestrian ponies, something Luna thinks is extremely important for Equestria in the future. Princess Luna struggles with having a lack of self-control. Luna has always had a short temper. She is easily angered by things she does not approve of. She is also stubborn in traditions and her roles as a Princess. These two traits cause her to misjudge the best social approach sometimes and, when she is wrong, will make her upset. Because of her stubbornness, she can be easy to deceive using her own wits against her, which helped the Nightmare forces convince her to transform. Though she can be a stick in the mud at times, she also enjoys the exploration of new things. She's often curious about activities she has yet to discover. And though she spends a great deal of time alone, she would rather be with other ponies. Her social skills are less than preferred, unfortunately, as she will occasionally miscommunicate or come across intimidating. Luna always tries to counter this with an extra effort of socializing with the citizens. She will sometimes randomly appear unannounced at events in which there is a social gathering or festival. And now that she realizes that there are several ponies who have fun at night, she is constantly on the lookout for evening activities where her subjects enjoy the moon and stars. There is no telling where she will be on any given day or night. Luna lives in Canterlot with her sister. She writes letters everyday to her constituents who are faithful to write to her. She plays her role as Princess of the Night, and Celestia's first mare. With the nightmare behind her, and the moon in her power, she hopes to be the best night Princess she has ever been.
