|Name: Celestia, Princess only during official business, please. |
Occupation: Princess of Equestria
Cutie Mark and Cutie Mark Story: Sun with eight rays reaching out and curling at the tips. Celestia received her Cutie Mark long after taking on the role of Princess of Equestria alongside her sister. Before this time, the sun and moon were raised and lowered by a group of five unicorns and Star Swirl the Bearded everyday. The magic required for such an act was strenuous on the unicorns, however, and it drained them of their magic-permanently. Only Star Swirl was able to maintain his magical power over these rituals, but even his magic was eventually drained. Star Swirl approached the alicorn sisters and told them of this unfortunate occurrence, knowing from his divinations that the sisters were key. Luna knew what to do immediately and lowered the moon to make way for the sun. Celestia was not as confident as her sister however, but with a little encouragement from her sister, raised the sun to light the day. The sisters found that not only was this task easy for them, but it rejuvenated their magical abilities, granting them the power to return magic to the unicorns of Equestria and earning them their cutie marks in the process.
Character Traits: Princess Celestia is calm and benevolent, preferring to solve threats through peace and understanding. She is not without temper, though, and will sometimes resort to violence when innocents are in danger. A wise and gentle teacher, Celestia prefers to let her students learn by doing rather than through lectures. Though she sometimes put Twilight through rigorous situations, she did so with confidence that she would come out on top. Celestia would never intentionally put one of her citizens in danger and would sooner stand between them and any threat than leave them behind. The Princess is not all serious though, she enjoys a good joke now and then and can sometimes come off as a little cruel with her pranks. She always means well and only wants her ponies to see that she does not see herself as above them and simply wants to share a laugh.
History: Princess Celestia and Princess Luna spent some time in Equestria as fillies before they were crowned Princesses of Equestria. Celestia studied under Star Swirl the bearded and learned many different magics from him. She spent most of her time studying magic when she wasn't playing games with her sister in their castle. When the sisters were crowned, Celestia took her job much more seriously than Luna and always looked down on the childish pranks she played on their visitors. It was not until she found Luna in the country of the zebras after she went missing one day that she began to lighten her mood and learn how to have fun with her job. Celestia was also known for talking down a dragon who stole the Crystal Heart from the Crystal Empire in it's early days. Luna attempted to speak peacefully with the dragon, but when it mocked and insulted her, Celestia became angry and spoke down to the dragon with her Royal Canterlot Voice. The dragon was so shaken that he relinquished the Crystal Heart and it was safely returned to the Empire. After that, Celestia and Luna ruled Equestria peacefully until the fated day that Nightmare Moon was created.
