Twilight Sparkle was once a gifted unicorn: her unparalleled magical capabilities prompted Princess Celestia to make Twilight her own personal protege. For years, Twilight was a faithful student of magic and history. She is highly experienced in Transmutation magic and makes extensive use of her teleportation spell.

Some time in the last few years, Celestia sent Twilight down to Ponyville to learn more about ponies outside of Canterlot (and, she hoped, to learn more about the value of Friendship as well). There, she met her best friends and stopped the return of the deranged Princess Luna, then known as Nightmare Moon (because horse puns). The lessons she learned through her friends about standing together have helped her topple some of the biggest threats Equestria has faced in thousands of years.

While a natural leader, Twilight's intelligence leads to plague her with curiosity and won't believe anything out of the ordinary without seeing it with her own two eyes. Her available spells and cantrips are somewhat self-explanatory, but if you want more information about them, they are available in the above conversion.

Lastly, she has a very unique Edge called Ascension. This is a Legendary Edge that makes the pony that takes it an alicorn, gaining the abilities all three pony races: Earth, Pegasi, and Unicorns. Twilight ascended at the end of season 3, but we haven't seen much of this since then... maybe Big Mac is next.

So there we go: the entire main cast of Friendship is Magic. Now you people that don't care about ponies won't see them around anymore. Leave questions, comments, and pony hate in the comments below.
