So, it's been a while since I brought my ponysona into roleplaying and I thought it was about time to get her a complete presentation.Name
: Scarlet InkRace
: Earth PonyAge
: TrottinghamCurrent residence
: Ponyville, she lives in the apartment above her libraryOccupation
: she's a librarian and owns a shop of her own near Ponyville's town hallAppearance
: she's a writer of great talent, but prefers to keep what she create to herself and a few other trusted poniesPersonality
: Scarlet is a very kind and a bit naive mare that is generically prone to fall in maternal attitudes: she likes to take cares of others and is a good shoulder to cry on, always having a sweet word for anypony who needs it. She's also very passionate about her work and loves talking and bonding with her clients, often meeting them out of work and hanging around Ponyville.
Despite her being usually well accepted by others, Scarlet doesn't have a good self-esteem: past experiences brought her to underestimate herself and to think she's easily replaceable with somepony better than her. To prevent this, she sometimes exaggerates her attempts at being useful to others, overwhelming herself, and hides her feelings to keep a strong and calm facade.Family
- Precious Lily (younger sister, 18, unicorn, student): Scarlet and Lily share a deep sisterly love and are both greatly protective toward each other, but they're also really differents, since, while one is very quiet and enjoys a peaceful and homely environment, the other is very extroverted and loves mundane life;
- Pristine Clarity (mother, 49, unicorn, architect): while really loving her mother and looking up to her as an example of certainty and positive self-awareness, Scarlet has also always feared to disappoint the finicky unicorn, never being sure what to expect from her;
- Azure Might (father, 50, Earth pony, head blacksmith): much as her sister, Scarlet is the apple of her father's blue eyes and she really adores him in return, opening herself more with him than with any other pony else and knowing he would do anything for his "little toad" (said affectionately)Backstory
Scarlet was born in Trottingham and lived there for the greatest part of her life, with her family and several relatives displaced in neighboring districts.
She has always been encouraged to follow her passions and dreams from her parents and had been made to grow educated and curious about the world around her.
Unfortunately, entering school she had been made object of bullying by her classmates, initially for her unusual gracility and clumsiness as a Earth pony and then, later on, for her myopia and her blank flank. Struggling to make friends, she entered a book club and found her Cutie Mark after winning a scholastic competition to which she had been encouraged to participate by Golden Stories, her teacher and, later on, mentor.
In her teenage years, she started to work part-time in the library Golden Stories inherited from her grandfather and discovered how much she really loved books and, especially, sharing stories with other ponies and decided that, one day, she would have opened a library of her own.
The occasion arrived when, after years of working and saving to realize her dream and some months after Tirek's attack on Equestria, she moved to Ponyville, where the previous library (Golden Oak Library, we will forever miss you
) had been destroyed during the fight between the villain and Princess Twilight Sparkle.
With the support of her family and the enthusiastic help of the Princess, she was finally able to open the Ruby Quill Library, on the road to the town's center, and is now still happily working on it.
