#Gender ; Female
#Cutie Mark ; A six-pointed pink star with a white starburst behind it, and five orbiting white stars around it.
#Occupation ; Princess of Friendship, Princess Celestia's faithful student, librarian of Golden Oaks Library in Ponyville (formerly), and official organizer of Ponyville's Winter Wrap-Up teams!
#Powers and Abilities ; Twilight Sparkle is very adept in learning magic. She only needs to witness a spell once or twice in order to get an idea of how it works and how to replicate it herself. When wielding her Element of Magic alongside her friends she is capable of unleashing some very potent magic able to defeat Nightmare Moon and Discord. Aside from that she is mildly athletic, able to do fairly well in the Running of the Leaves on her first try.
Since becoming an Alicorn her magic has increased quite a bit, and she has gained access to the regular abilities of Earth Ponies and Pegasi. Despite having wings and being trained by Rainbow Dash, her flying skills are rather average. She also has access to Rainbow Power, which seems to be the power of the Elements of Harmony combined, and without a physical manifestation.
#Physique ; Twilight is sa goof half of a head taller than how she used to be giving her a little bit of a lean look.
#Mane and fur color and style ; Twilight's mane is a moderate sapphire blue with strikes of moderate violet and brilliant rose. She keeps it cut simple and straight. Her coat color is a light mulberry.
#Eye color ; Moderate Violet
#Other appearance details (optional) ; Much of Twilight's wardrobe has light blue, pale yellows, or bright pinks in it.
#A more thorough description (optional) ;Aside from getting a bit taller and a set of wings, Twilight Sparkle remains looking much the same as she always has. She has her own crown, but seldom wears it.
Every since she was a little filly, Twilight Sparkle has had a mind like a sponge. From a very young age she acquired a thirst for knowledge, and took to school like a duck takes to water. These early experiences have formed a large portion of who she is and forming her into the ideal student. Twilight easily conformed with Canterlot's high standards of neatness. Much of her lifestyle has grown up being neat and orderly. Everything in her home is neatly organized and in it's place, and she is known for making checklists to ensure everything gets done properly.
Things haven't always been the best for shaping Twilight. While becoming Celestia's personal student did wonders for her academically, but it did have some adverse affects. Being Celestia's student has caused Twilight to have extremely high standards for herself, and her very structured lifestyle has left her with difficulties with adapting to sudden changes. When things start to go wrong, even if it is something others may perceive as minor, if she can't get a hoof on the situation quickly enough, she can be prone to anxiety and panicking. When this happens Twilight ends up working herself up more and more, and it usually takes another party to bring her down. This has lead to her being cautions and trying to be overly prepared for whatever she has planned, and also a bit fussy. Once she has a plan she sticks to it, and everything has to be just right.
Spending so much time with her nose in a book also stunted her growth socially. Thanks to her friends in Ponyville she is becoming much more social, but a few things still linger. For instance she can be a little oblivious when it comes to a few things. Sometimes she has a hard time relating to other ponies due to her sheltered upbringing, and when told of a problem is a bit more likely to try and find a solution rather than just listening to the pony. She can also be a bit slow in recognizing expressions. When asked "How's it hanging?" she'd be more inclined to tell you how her hanging fern is doing, and wondering how you knew about it. All the time in the castle has done some good for her though! Being around the Princess and various nobles for so long has given Twilight a bit of a courtly way about her. Her first instincts with ponies are always to be polite and diplomatic.
Coming to Ponyville has brought out new facets of Twilight's personality, and the mare has grown by leaps and bounds thanks to her new experiences. The Unicorn has learned to open herself up to others. Even though she has her moments, deep down Twilight is a pony who deeply cares for her friends. She would face an angry hydra, or go to the ends of Equestria to help one of them. They've taught her what it means to care for others, and to do things like have fun. Most ponies wouldn't know it, but when she lets go Twilight becomes quite the party animal, and it's hard to keep her off the dance floor. She's not very good at dancing without choreography, at all. The point is she knows how to have fun, whether it's enjoying a Pinkie Party, or cheering Applejack on at a rodeo.
Ever since becoming a Princess, Twilight's stress levels have gone up quite a bit. At first she was eager to know her place in Equestria, and now that she knows it, she does her best to do a good job. For being a Princess, Twilight can be rather humble about it. She would rather talk to somepony as Twilight Sparkle, not Princess Twilight Sparkle. She does her best to be diplomatic and find find peaceful solutions to problems when she comes across them.
Recently she has found out she is going to be an Aunt, and is excited about it. For a pony who can speak so plainly, she lips into a Canterlot accent everytime she says the word. Another source of excitement for her is the fact she now has a student! A full-fledged student! She looks forward to all the friendship lessons she can teach Starlight Glimmer.
Twilight Sparkle was born during the summer months in Canterlot as the only daughter, and the second child, to Twilight Velvet and Night Light. From a young age Twilight was enamored with books and learning. By the time she was in kindergarten she was already reading at a level a couple of years ahead of everypony else. Making friends wasn't easy for the little filly. What small child wants to stay in doors and read, or learn division? That didn't matter though, because Twilight had her big brother, Shining Armor! For a long time she was always clinging to him. Wherever he went, she wanted to follow. If she was having a bad day, he always knew how to make things better.
As years went by and Shining Armor had less time to watch her at home, it became apparent that Twilight would need a foalsitter. That's when Cadence entered her life. Twilight was shy at first, but the pretty mare won her over in short order. The Unicorn would always hold a special place in her heart for Cadence, and in later years would still react like a little filly when meeting her.
Because of her high aptitude for learner, Twilight was enrolled in Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns. She was very excited about the opportunity, but also worried about the entrance exam! Her father, Night Light, would stay up late helping her study to the point of never wanting to see another flash card again. Despite all of her studying the entrance exam wasn't anything she could have anticipated! She was expected to hatch a dragon egg! In retrospect the test was probably to see what she might do to try and help it hatch, but she wanted to go the distance. Her first attempts didn't go well. In fact, she had some difficulty even getting her horn to light!
Just as things were looking bad an explosion rocked the building! Twilight was startled by it and accidentally unleashed all of her magic! As her magic ran wild she hatched the egg, turned her parents into desert plants, and even turned the baby dragon into a giant! That last part is what gained the attention of Princess Celestia. Seeing strange lights and a dragon break the roof of the exam room caused her to investigate what was going on. Once the Princess was able to calm Twilight, the transformations reverted. It was then that Twilight was offered to become Celestia's protogé, and she got her cutie mark as well!
Twilight did very well in school. She took personal lessons from Celestia herself, as well as a mix of classes at the school. There she studied along side some ponies such as Trixie Lulamoon, however she spent most of her time with her nose deep inside of a book. Minuette, Twinkleshine, Lemon Hearts, Lyra Heartstrings, and Moondancer were the ponies she was most social with, and even then she spent most of her time studying instead of socializing. Twilight devoted so much time to her studies that when she moved out of her home and into a tower at the Castle, she filled it with books. She even spent her summer vacation studying!
It was during one of these study sessions that she uncovered the prophecy about the return of Nightmare Moon! In a rush to research the topic more and alert the Princess she completely forgot about Moondancer's party. When she did alert Princess Celestia to the looming danger she was sent to Ponyville to oversee the Summer Sun Celebration and make friends. Such a task did not sit well with Twilight, but she obeyed. Twilight was quickly taken to Ponyville via chariot.
Nightmare Moon arrived just as the Summer Sun Celebration was about to begin, and captured Princess Celestia. Without thinking Twilight rushed off to find the Elements of Harmony, the one thing she knew could vanquish Nightmare Moon. Five other ponies also came with her: Rarity, Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Rainbow Dash. Together they braved many traps set by Nightmare Moon, recovered the Elements of Harmony and blasted her with a rainbow of friendship! Instead of banishing her away, the magic instead undid much of the dark magic at work and revealed Nightmare Moon to be Princess Luna, Celestia's sister!
Since then Twilight has resided in Ponyville acting as the village's librarian. Together with her new friends she reports all the lessons they learn about friendship to Princess Celestia, and occasionally help save the world. Twilight Sparkle was in Canterlot for her brother's wedding to Princess Cadence, and the subsequent attack by changelings, and was also at the Crystal Empire to help reclaim it from Sombra's dark presence. Her friends have taught her a lot about friendship, and with them at her side she's sure she can weather whatever the future holds!
And what weather the future held.
Aside from Discord being (somewhat) reformed and now free, Twilight Sparkle has become an Alicorn, and a Princess at that. Her mentor Princess Celestia had given her one of Starswirl the Bearded's old journals. Inside of it was a spell that even the old Unicorn himself could not complete, or fully understand. Casting it changed the cutie marks of all of her friends with disasterous effects. It was due to Twilight's own understanding of friendship that she was able to undo the effects of the spell, finish it. Shortly after completing the spell she was sent into another realm, one Celestia knew about, and was already waiting for her there. It was time to embrace her destiny. When she reappeared among her friends, much to everyone's surprise, she was an Alicorn! Shotlly after this, she was coronated as one of Equestria's Princesses, the Princess for Friendship.
Adventure seemed to only follow Twilight closer after her coronation. Shortly acter being coronated she had to save Princess Celestia and Princess Luna from thorny tentacles Discord had planted ages ago. The key to pushing them back and saving the Princesses was finding the Tree of Harmony, and returning the Elements of Harmony to it. In return the tree gave her a chest with six keys. Over the next few weeks she would study the chest while still attending to her duties as Princess of Friendship, and her friends. They key, or keys rather, to teh chest were revealed when the mighty Tirek had escaped Tartarus, and attacked Equestria. He stole magic from everypony, and Twilight had to face him alone weilding the powers of all the Princesses. In the ensuing battle Ponyville suffered a casualty as the Golden Oaks Library was turned into a smoldering crater. Just as she was getting the upper hoof Tirek took her friends hostage, and she relented to save their lives... and Discord's. In the moment she had with Discord then her key to the chest came into existance and the crystal chest opened.
Imbued with Rainbow Power, Twilight and her friends were able to undo Tirek's evil magic and return all the magic he had stolen! As everypony stood back to enjoy the day's victory there came a rumbling from the ground. A massive crystal tree holding a castle in its branches erupted from the ground. This would become Twilight's castle, the Castle of Friendship. Inside of the castle was a meeting room with seven chairs situated around a table. Each of her friends had a seat at a map of Equestria, and they would all quickly find out that the map would send them out on adventures to solve friendship problems.
The first sent them to a budding town found only on the magical map. A Unicorn named Starlight Glimmer had founded a settlement where everypony was supposed to be equal, and she would take everypony's cutie mark to keep it that way. Well, everypony's but her own. Some would just be more equal than others. After exposing Starlight for the hypocrite she was, she was run out of town, and the cutie marks were returned to everyone. Since then the map had given her friends missions to go on. While it took a long time for her to be called again, she still had some adventures of her own. A bugbear attacked on the same day as Cranky Doodle and Matilda's wedding. She organized a friendship Summit in Canterlot with only... a few hiccups. She reconnected with ponies she had known in school back in Canterlot, and made up for a past transgression. Most importantly though, she found out she was going to be an Aunt! When the map finally called her, it was up to her and Fluttershy to put an end to the feud between the Hooffields and McColts.
It wasn't long before another apocalypse event transpired. This time it was one aimed specifically at her. Starlight Glimmer had altered one of Starswirl's spells to travel back in time and attempted to stop the Sonic Rainboom that had given her and her friends their cutie marks. Each time the event was stopped Twilght was sent to a future born of the outcome. Without her friends there to protect Equestria, all manners of tragedy would occur. Nightmare Moon would reign, Discord would be free, Chrysalis would have taken over Canterlot, or there was a war with King Sombra... each future was worse than the last. Starlight Glimmer refused to believe this when it was shown to her, and after some venting she showed Twilight the event that had caused her downward spiral. Starlight, still heartbroken over what happened with Sunburst had turned her back on the world. Twilight told her it wasn't too late to change, to make new friends, and start a brand new chapter in her life. The Princess extended her hoof in friendship to Starlight, offering to be something the Unicorn didn't have, a friend.
Starlight Glimmer now resides in the Castle of Friendship as Twilight Sparkle's student. Twilight is excited for what the future holds, and the lessons Starlight will learn, but hopes that things finally quiet down for a change. They never do.

Twilight Sparkle turned the sign for Golden Oaks Library to "Sorry, We're Closed." before looking back on the main area of it. A number of tables were arranged in a neat row. In the middle of each one were three stacks of paper: One lined, one blank, and a the third was graph paper. A series of pencils with perfectly sharpened points sat neatly in a row next to quills, fresh ink wells, and a rainbow of highlighters. The purple Unicorn chewed on her bottom lip as she went over and inspected the yellows to make sure their tips hadn't blackened.
She let out a held breath when she confirmed the highlighters were still good. Her horn lit up with magic as a checklist was brought over to her. Purple eyes panned across the long scroll until they settle on the desired position and she marked off another thing done. "Okay. Now that's done what else is needed. Hmm.." Twilight scanned over her list of things for another moment. "Snacks! I almost forgot snacks." With a little bit of anxiety in her gait, she made her way to the kitchen to bring out a few plates containing celery, carrot sticks, kale chips, edamame, and a bowl of mixed nuts. She arranged them on the table, then stepped back to take a look at them.
"Hmm.. I really want to make a good impression. I better bring out the secret weapon." Twilight took a moment to glance around before she headed to a very specific section of her library. Making sure she wasn't being watched she pulled a few books away with her magic to get out a... secret cookie jar. She replaced the books back to their original state and returned to place it by the other snacks. "There. Nopony can turn down Oatmeal Raisin cookies. I'm sure Trixie and her friend will like these. All that's left is to bring out some cushions and blankets, and then I'll be completely ready for our study slumber party~"
