Grew Up... ambitious. Born in Canterlot, the royal capital, Twilight grew up around some of the most influential ponies in Equestria, so naturally she has pretty high standards for herself.
Living... in Ponyville, where Twilight was sent by her mentor, Princess Celestria, to continue her magical education – this time, studying something called "friendship." Twilight, though, is less than enthused about the task. As she tells Spike, her dragon assistant, "I am her student, and I'll do my royal duty, but the fate of Equestria does not rest on me making friends."
Profession... magical student under Princess Celestia. One of the co-rulers of Equestria, Celestia is one of the most powerful ponies alive, so Twilight is naturally floored when the Princess chooses her as her protégé. Celestia senses a lot of potential in the young unicorn, and Twilight is eager to live up to her mentor's expectations.
Interests... magic, learning, and books. A bookish pony since childhood, Twilight's love of reading defines her life – sometimes a little too much. As a filly, Twilight describes herself as a pony so enamored with books that she "found it rather silly to see how many other ponies I could meet." But if Ponyville has anything to say about it, then that's all about to change very soon.
Relationship Status... single. Her brother, Shining Armor, might be married, but Twilight's too busy focusing on her studies to care about romance.
Challenge... learning magic while trying to make friends. Although still young, Twilight is already a skilled spell-caster, but her social skills could still use a lot of work.
Personality... intelligent, serious, and driven. At times, Twilight might be a little too driven. One time she throws a slumber party by declaring, "we'll do everything by the book, and that will make [it] officially fun." But while she can be a bit uptight and anxious about her work, Twilight's serious nature comes from her strong sense of responsibility to her fellow ponies. And even though Twilight might be opposed to it, her new friends might just be able to teach this serious-minded pony how to relax.
