The last one actually sticks, though only after Tabula admits that she's needed a research assistant for a while.

A [[DoubleEntendre scrappy]] little peach pegasus filly from the streets of Shanghay and a big fan of Daring Do. Although she's only a foal, she's surprisingly street savvy and a fiery fighter. Tries desperately to become Daring Do's official sidekick, much to her chagrin. She was first introduced in ''Cove of Candles'' but [[TheScrappy fan outcry]] kept her from returning in the canon books. Her ExpandedUniverse appearances have done a lot to [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap rescue her]], though.
