This is it - the final reference sheet for main characters! Though i will need to update Cresent stars' ref. the filly version in it doesn't make sense anymore, and isn't canon anymore. Oh god her anatomy is messed up on the left.
Ribbon Rush is a young adult mare who spent most of her life up until recently in a tower beyond a forest next to Fillydelphia. Her cutie mark is a splash of paint wrapped in a ribbon, because of her love of decorating the town, specifically with ribbons and paintings.
She's up-beat, energetic and optimistic, but very naive. She barely knows anything about the world aside from what she read in her fairy tale books that her stepmother gave her. She's desperate for living out her own fairy tale because of it, and thus fell in love with the first stallion she bumped into. She can get childishly angry for no appearant reason, and isn't good at taking things seriously.
She used to be slightly schizophrenic, and used to draw ponies to reperesent positive things and talked to them whenever she was depressed back in that tower. But now it's gone since she actually has ponies to talk to.
poison joke effect: ridiculously uncontrollable fluffy mane. You would not believe how much hair she still packs in those buns in her mane and tail. It's still really long.
backstory (heavily inspired by the fairy tale of rapunzel.) (about as long as her mane.):
when she were just a few months old, her fathers beloved wife died. (I'm sorry if this sounds really stupidly sad and all of the sudden, but i don't really know how to put it more lightly). The father's only real reminder of his wife was his daughter, who looked almost exactly like her. Luckily he soon found another mare to continue the family, but she ended up hating him so much she took away what he loved most; his daughter, Ribbon Rush. She took her away to a tower beyond the forest and took very good care of the filly. After all, she didn't really have a reason to hate her.
so Ribbon Rush lived a long life in her tower with the only one to talk to being her mother, wh visited her very often. She grew up reading nothing but fairy tales, and her stepmother taught her how to paint and make dresses. But her stepmother never told her about what happened years ago. Ribbon only grew more curious about the outside world, but her mother only told her that it was a nasty place.
she decided to escape the same way as described in one of her fairy tale books, but her mane never grew long enough. She instead just used the ribbons she had from the dressmaking to escape. The rest of the story is still in development, but most of the things that aren't directly related to rapunzel happen AFTER she escapes. (Oh how anticlimactic)
all i can say is, after she escapes, it's more of a story about becoming more serious for her, and lightening up a bit and having fun for Featherflight. And a bit of fairy tale satire. That's when the main story takes place, so most of her backstory won't have much to do with the main story, wich is Butterscotsh' story. Wich bring all of the main oc's together.
