Unique Traits: Udon specializes in noodle soups, but just like the cakes make all sorts of deserts, she is also gifted with all sorts of soup. She has a very refined tongue and can often tell what ingredients were used in a food by blind taste.

History: Udon grew up in a small areion colony on the outskirts of Equestria. Her parents, Rice and Egg Noodle, owned and operated a restaurant serving Neighponese food. Udon's grandparents immigrated from Neighpon when they were young, and their cultural legacy survived through their son and daughter-in-law's desire to stay true to their roots. Though they could barely afford even one, they ended up having three foals: Ramen Noodle, Udon Noodle, and Spaghetti Noodle. In order to support such a family, Rice and Egg would work long hours and go to great lengths to sell their food, including making deliveries two towns over. Their children helped out around the house as much as possible and, when they were old enough, went to work with their parents in the restaurant. Udon's brother Ramen was the first to go to work, and consequently the first to earn his cutie mark. His younger sister was soon to follow, being only a year younger than him. It came to her when she made her first bowl of miso all by herself in he restaurant. When the customer gave a satisfactory grin as he ate it, she beamed with pride and her cutie mark appeared. A couple years after her, Spaghetti earned his cutie mark as well (though, his cooking wasn't what Rice and Egg would call "traditional"...).

But alas, there comes a time when every bird must leave the nest. Spaghetti was the first to leave, pursuing new ideas "diverse soups". He flew off to Celestia knows where right after graduating. From what Udon knows, he spends his time traveling Equestria and the nations beyond to gather new recipes and combine flavors, searching for the ultimate dish. Udon was next, but her time came much, much later. (Ramen never left, choosing to stay behind and run the family business) She left for Canterlot shortly after Princess Luna's return, wanting to be closer to the Princess of the Night. Upon arriving in Canterlot, she opened up a food cart. But she found little success. No one in Canterlot was awake at night other than one or two other areions, and they weren't terribly interested in what she was selling. So she flipped her sleep schedule to sell during the day. But ponies weren't too keen to do business with a bat pony. So finally she started wearing a shirt with her cart's logo that covered her wings. Only by hiding her identity was she able to achieve success, and she managed to keep the cart afloat.

Even so, Canterlot turned out to not be the place for her. She was only scraping by, and she was sure she would be able to find more success elsewhere. That elsewhere proved not to be Cloudsdale, where the pegasi were instantly able to recognize her true species and avoided her, nor was it Ponyville, where although she was welcomed with open arms, her cart was destroyed by attacking creatures or some kind of disaster twice in one month.

It was only after she received a letter from Spaghetti concerning the cuisine of the Crystal Empire that she decided to head that direction. She knew he wouldn't be there by the time she and her cart arrived, but she thought maybe ponies as loving as the Crystalites would accept her business. And she was right! She soon found success, enough of it that she felt confident ditching the shirt and revealing her true wings. Ponies lined up to get a taste of her delicious soup, and before she knew it, she was in need of a second employee. That employee would later become her husband (I'm leaving him undescribed beyond the fact that he is a Crystal Pony because I think it would be fun if someone apped her husband). Now, she and her husband pull their cart around the Crystal Empire, spreading joy and soup to all they meet.

Character Personality: Udon is confident, but not overly so. She has a realistic level of confidence in herself and those around her. She is an introvert, but she is by no means shy. She is fine to talk to ponies, attend social gatherings, and serve scores of ponies hot soup. But she prefers those quiet evenings when she can curl upon on the couch and read a nice book. Thus, she rarely speaks unless she is spoken to, not really going out of her way to make conversation. Of course, once engaged, she happily will carry on a conversation. But she will almost never be the one to start it.
Character Summary: Udon is an areion married to a Crystal pony. They reside happily in the Crystal Empire making soup in their portable cart. Though they are from two completely different worlds, they have made their cooking styles and flavors blend together in a unique (and delicious!) way. She is introverted, but will still be a good time if you engage her. She loves her family and her husband and her work.

 

Sorry if it's a little weird. I wrote this at 1 AM while I was thinking about it.

 

Also, anyone is free to app Udon's husband or siblings (or parents)! Just shoot me a DM for permission and to work things out! I would love to see more Noodles!
