History: Celestia first rose to power with her sister when asked by the first ponies of Equestria if they would be the rulers and represent all races in the land. While hesitant at first, she took to the role well enough after a time. She saw it as an opportunity to learn and grow with ponies, and to show them the power of uniting all the races of ponies, rather than being individual tribes. Being the older sister, she took on more of the responsibility and public figure. In her youthful arrogance, she loved the limelight. She loved being adored and even worshiped in some cases. Her ego eventually got the better of her, and she turned a blind eye to the suffering it caused other ponies, including her sister. The conflict that arose between Celestia and her sister ended when Celestia was forced to confront her sister and do battle with her, claiming victory at a high price. It crushed her inside, knowing the pain she caused others, and the damage to their home. Even in her victory, Celestia found no comfort in the praise of her citizens anymore. They loved and worshiped her as a savior, as she only saw herself as a betrayer of those that needed her most. 

 

After banishing her sister, Celestia ruled alone for over 1000 years as the only princess of Equestria. During this time, she established a military force and expanded Equestria's land coverage in all directions. Reaching shores and deserts alike, she sought to bring ponies together and unite the world in peace. She wanted to make every living being see that love and friendship were the answer rather than power and fame.

 

In this, she realized that if her ponies depend on her so much that without her they are lost, Equestria will fall. To this effect, she has spent a good deal of time during the peace to make herself a distant part of their world, visible as a beacon on the hill, but not needed in their daily lives. However in times of Strife when threats arise, she will step forward to protect her kingdom. Unfortunately this has made many ponies in the past believe she is the sole protector of their kingdom. The princess choose this reason to form the REA. Having a military force that can protect them even in her absence would help the citizens understand that they can defend themselves just as well as if she were standing there with them. 

 

In more recent history, she has taken a step back. She gives other ponies a push in the right direction, helping them to become heroes of Equestria. This is to ensure that no matter what, Equestria will always have ponies to lead it to peace and safety. She also realize what while she is ageless, she can be defeated and killed by many other means. Multiple times, she has underestimated her opponent, being imprisoned by them. This has taught her that she is not invulnerable. As impressive as her magic is, and as deep as her power runs she knows that there is always the chance her opponent might be more powerful or more crafty than she is. 

 

Like any modern ruler, she is a civil servant. In the past she was lavished with love and could freely ask whatever she wanted. Her power to control the sun made many see her as a god. She cared nothing for this, but allowed it to pass as her longevity and great magical power caused many to revere her presence. Celestia helped guide public opinion over the years, turning her position of absolute ruler into that of a civic servant. She served the ponies of the country, as they served the kingdom. She established it this way to form a series of checks and balances to help keep the palace from gaining too much influence again. She cared nothing for the power, but knew that without a ruler the country would be lost. 

 

Character Personality: Celestia is a smart mare, with a skill for handling unexpected situations with calm and poise. However she has lost connection to her ponies and sometimes forgets that when interacting with them, they can not just understand what she wants or needs. Years of being the only princess have set her in the habit of believing she is the only one to be able to handle a situation until it gets beyond her abilities or knowledge. Her rule was dotted with a few instances of serious danger, between long stretches of peace and prosperity. 

 

Celestia has a fondness for sweets and music. She enjoys her sugary foods a bit too much, overindulging when she thinks no one is looking. While she maintains a slim figure, she can easily pack away an entire cake by herself. Her love of music extends to many forms, from the old classical pieces to the more modern club music produced by many modern ponies. Her favorite way to enjoy music is from the musician themselves, no matter their instrument choice. Be it electronic keyboard powered by magic or an old family violin that sang out notes coaxed from its strings by a an old professional, Celestia loves music. Even the out of tune notes played by a foal their first time they try to play, she enjoys it because it represents joy and peace to her.

 

Her hidden personality is that of a timid mare, scared of her own power. Not her magical prowess, but as a ruler. Celestia is aware that she sometimes forgets she is a princess, and when she speaks or acts out of character it causes confusion and concern for other ponies. Her other self is locked deep away, hidden from the common pony and shown only around dear friends and family. She is scared, knowing that one day she might slip up and hurt another pony so deeply as she did her sister. 

 

Over the ages, she has made friends with many other rulers or other countries, including: the Hippogriffs, Saddle Arabia, Maretonia, and many others. Her efforts are to ensure that Equestira always has allies. Her reasoning is that in the event of great danger, these countries can band together and protect themselves from the threat to secure peace for their various peoples again. 

 

Character Summary: Celestia is skilled in combat, from engagements in the crystal empire, against various foes of Equestria such as chaotic spirits and evil invaders, to common challenges to her throne by powerful and skilled warriors. As she grew older, in the peace that was secured for Equestria she lost some of her combat edge, and relied more on help from other ponies to keep the world safe. She is also a loving mare, with more heart than most and a deep desire to share that love with every pony. She wants to be friends with all her ponies, and show them she is not some monarch on a pedestal but a friend they can turn to in their time of need. 

 

Knowing her position, Celestia tries her best to promote ponies to realize they are just as important as she is. She can not be a princess without them, and so tries to show them that they have so much more power than she does. However she feels restricted because she is duty bound to Equestria to provide it a service like any other civil servant. She must raise and lower the sun, as well as handle matters of importance like daily court or missives from other leaders.
