Cadance entered history under strange and tragic circumstances. Born as a Pegasus to unknown parents, the foal Cadance was found abandoned in the forest outside the Earth Pony village of River's Fork in Northwest Equestria. Though she had adoptive parents, it would be more accurate to say that by the time she was a filly, she was being raised by the entire village as she was often interested in all the other ponies of the village, able to recite everypony's birthdays in order. She was a helping hoof even back then as well, at times cleaning, at other times helping the woodsponies.
Before her teen years were in sight, she was known as the most loving pony in town, and it would not be long before that title was put to the test when a Unicorn sorceress named Prismia approached the village with a necklace that let her steal ponies' love and replace it with her spite. When she came to steal Cadance's love, Cadance remained true to her belief in the good of ponies, that care, love, was the way to find common ground. She continued to care as Prismia pulled love, but Cadance's love was so great that Prismia's spite broke, the necklace cracking.
Prismia changed her ways and promised that she would help the village to repay their kindness. It was then that Cadance was magically swept away, teleported to a strange, starry and foggy expanse. There, she met Princess Celestia, who somehow knew what she had done, and gave her an offer, that she would adopt Cadance as her niece help Harmony complete Cadance's destiny. When Cadance returned to her village later on, she had a horn on her forehead and a little crown behind it; she had become Princess Cadance, and said a farewell before becoming Celestia's pupil.
In Canterlot, Cadance proved to live up to the challenge of her radically new way of life. Though it was always tiring, she enjoyed attending court with Celestia the most as every supplicant, every pony (and even a Dragon or Griffon now and then) was different, and so, every visitor was a chance to make a new face smile. By the time she was a teen, however, Cadance grew restless with the poised circumstances of the Palace, and in order to get to know ponies better, she asked to be able to do the unthinkable for a Princess: foalsit.
This was how Cadance came to care for an interested and very intelligent filly, Twilight Sparkle, and the filly's strong and cute older brother, Shining Armor, who was getting top marks on a path to becoming a Royal Guard. What came was a wonderful stretch of time for Cadance filled with learning and having fun with the Unicorn family, helping little Twilight study while increasingly thinking about Shining and the young stallion's warm, strong geekiness. Despite her station, she never seriously considered that he'd choose her, and yet that's what would happen.
A young adulthood came, and increasingly, Cadance found herself at her aunt's side, using her good nature and Love Magic to become more than a pupil, but a confident Princess ready to take on more, sometimes serving in Celestia's stead while the Crown Princess was away. It was before one such day, just before court, that she was to meet a young star of the Guard, none other than Shining Armor. That night, the two caught up and shared cupcakes in the garden under then-returned Luna's moon. About a year later, they were engaged, beaming with love.
Since then, they have been the Couple of Equestria, facing dire hazards such as the Changeling Invasion of Canterlot and the Return of Kind Sombra and the Crystal Empire with love for each other and faith in their friends. Currently, Cadance serves as the Provisional Empress of the Crystal Empire, ruling with her consistent love and tireless energy as the Crystal Ponies adapt to modern Equestria and heal the scars of enslavement under Sombra. Shining Armor remains her strong husband, leading and teaching the Imperial Guard.Personality
The Equestrian Princess of Love and the Provisional Empress of the Crystal Empire, Mi Amore Cadenza ... really just prefers Cadance, the name her adoptive parents gave her. She is humble, and views her position as one among ponies, not above them. To her, she's still the filly nosing around for ways to make a better community though she can no longer go about helping everypony has much as before, at least not with her own two hooves. No matter her crown or how pretty her mane is, she's a pony of her nature more than anything, and that particular nature is to help others.
Of course, there's more to her than a natural sense of altruism. More deeply, she's a mare with a lot of energy to spend with a confidence that all comes from an adventurous, playful side of her. She loves a great thrill, and more than once has flown dangerously into the train tunnels of Mt. Canterlot (when, at least, she knew nopony was watching, a thrill onto its own). She very naturally recognizes the dynamism of life, that she cannot cross the same river or the same pony twice, no matter how long she'll ever live.
But the large thoughts of nature and personal philosophies aside, Cadance is generally clear-headed, very good at keeping calm under stress, and when she's not stressed, she can be just a tall giggling filly or a laid-back teenage tomcolt all over again. She is still a young royal, and the only one of the Princesses to have such a public relationship. Sometimes, she fears that one day she'll find herself presented by a test that she cannot pass, especially when she looks to her aunts' wisdom earned by difficult history.Roleplayer Information

How did you find us?: Equestria DailySample RoleplayDear Mom and Dad,She smiled down on the letter drying in the candlelight, the chamber glittering dimly as the crystal walls made amber marbles of every ray of flamelight. She rolled the letter after a few moments and lifted the candle and a stick of pink wax, all in the glimmering soft blue of her magic, and pressed down her seal, shaped like the Crystal Heart, her Cutie Mark. She put the scroll in a wood case and put the case down on her desk before standing from her seat there, her hooves bare, her crown on the desk by the inkwell. With a relaxed, sleepy smile, she turned.
Happy New Year from your little filly! I miss you both terribly! Mom? I hope your irises are going to come in beautifully this Spring, and Dad, I know you must be so excited to see the hill hikers come back. Speaking of the Springtime, we're still pretty cold up here in the Empire, but when Winter is wrapped up, I'm wondering if Shining Armor and I could come and visit? You two should see how excited he is to meet you, it makes me giggle! Ready to train a new Woodspony, Dad?
Equestria always finds new ways to surprise us, but if we can get things running smoothly, would a week in May be okay? By the way, if you need anything, now or when, if I'm able to come, please let me know. For the moment, I hope you'd like the picture I've enclosed. Remember Twilight? She's the one in the middle with the big purple eyes. I still can't hardly believe I foalsat for such an amazing mare. Like we always say, any trout can make a rapid. I love you both dearly and hope to see you both soon.-Your Daughter Forever, Cadance
The carpeted floor did not betray her hoofsteps to the adorable pale-coated lump sleeping in the two ponies' bed, her magic pinching the candlelight. She stopped on her way to the deeply soft bed and looked out of her frosty window out to the city below. In her head, she nudged the introspection away. Not tonight. She squinted, making midnight blues blur with the little specks of gold from distant candles shimmering. A soft sigh left her, and she shuffled over to and under her covers, scooting her back between her husband's forelegs. He held her faintly, and it was perfect.
"... Pretty waffle, mine," He mumbled from his sleep as he nuzzled her mane.
"... She sure is, Shiny ..." Her whisper came from behind a smile, then her eyes shut.
