!!Snowy Night/Rimewind the Frigid
!!!Pegasus. A former apprentice of Luna from 300 years ago, still alive thanks to Windigo magic.

Born to a family of poor farmers on the Everfree border zone before the Everfree provinces were created, Snowy displayed a natural talent for weather manipulation. However the death of her little brother coupled with her parents' blaming her for leaving the farm and being at least partially responsible drove her to seek out the Windigos. While her initial goal was to find a way to control the Everfree's weather (though it's unclear if the Windigos can actually do this), her searching for them and being alone in her thoughts eventually drove her insane and instilled in her a desire to coat the world in snow and ice. The Windigos imparted to her immense power, transforming her into Rimewind the Frigid. Luna fought against her and defeated her, imprisoning the now-glacially-aging pony in Tartaros, where she has spent the last 300 years regaining her sanity. She is the only other living student of Luna besides Trixie.

* {{Adorkable}}: At times.
* TheAtoner: Recovered her sanity a century or so ago, but still felt bad enough about everything that happened that she insisted on remaining in Tartaros until the present day.
* BlessedWithSuck: Snowy is still aging, it's just that physically aging one year is taking several hundred at a time. She's going to spend a long, ''long'' time in as a middle-aged or old-aged pony.
** Her ice powers are far and away above what any other pegasus has...but she can't deal with more "normal" temperatures very well. It's unclear if this is a result of her powers, though, or if instead it's because she spend 300 years in a frozen river in Tartaros and simply needs to get used to warmer climes again.
* {{Callback}}: Not her directly, but while in Kokytos she built an ice palace for herself. That Trixie visited. Fortunately this one didn't melt, which means Trixie is 2-1 in that regard.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: 300 years ago, she was a threat to Equestria that required Luna's intervention to stop.
* DealWithTheDevil: With the Windigos, though according to her there wasn't exactly a lot of ''bargaining''. They knew what she wanted, she knew what they wanted. There was no actual words involved.
* DespairEventHorizon: What pushed her over the edge 300 years ago. She got better.
* {{Expy}}: Of Sunset Shimmer in the show. Like Sunset, Snowy is a former student of the princess who turned to evil and became a monster as a result, but was later redeemed.
** Of Corona to an extent, as well.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Averted. 200 years in the River Kokytos in Tartaros helped her ''regain'' her sanity (along with regular visits from Luna), while the next 100 years were self-imposed at her own request as a form of personal atonement.
* AnIcePerson: The Windigo gave her power over snow and ice that goes to practically Elsa levels.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Her first action was to help the Ponyville weather patrol with an ice problem in their clouds...without permission, telling them what she was up to, or even introducing herself.
* KillItWithIce: Her plan 300 years ago, for ''all of Equestria''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: What prompted her to stay in Tartaros for an extra hundred years.
* Really700YearsOld: 320 years old, but due to the glacial aging that the Windigos "gifted" to her, she only looks to be in her early 20s.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: She never gets cold.
* TraumaCongaLine: First, her parents basically disowned her when she left the farm to learn from Luna. Then a few years later, she learns that her youngest brother is extremely ill, after it's too late for Luna's magic to do anything to help him (and the medical knowledge of the time being insufficient to save him, either). He dies, sending her over the DespairEventHorizon. She sets out looking for Windigos, ostensibly to find out how to control the weather in the Everfree (as she blamed an unusually cold winter on her brother's death), but by the time she found them she had gone mad and instead used the powers they gave her to try and cover Equestria in rime and snow. In the end, she's defeated by Luna and locked in Tartaros.
* VagueAge: Averted (which is rare for the Lunaverse), she's explicitly 320 years old, give or take a few years, though she looks much younger.
* WickedCultured: Snowy's letters read like they could have been written by Ben Franklin or Lord Nelson. In person, however, she is much more casual, even using (admittedly antiquated) slang, like "gardyloo!" ("look out below", roughly...but generally referring to when one emptied a chamber-pot the window)
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Of a different sort than normally seen in the Lunaverse; Snowy speaks and writes like someone from the late-1700s or early 1800s. She doesn't use "thee" or "hast" or the like, but does use antiquated words or spellings ("donjon" instead of dungeon; "immurement" instead of imprisonment), and well as archaic sentence structure (such as "I trust not" rather than "I don't trust", or using "I/it be" instead of "I am/it is")

to:

* VagueAge: All of them are somewhere in or around the young adult area. Cheerilee is the oldest, and Raindrops is slightly younger than all the others, but beyond that it's a toss-up.



* {{CelibateHero}}/{{Asexuality}}: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny One scene]] in ''Helping... Hands?'' implies her to be a virgin, and indeed she seems to be unnerved by the sex in general:

* DisappearedDad: Her mother died while Trixie was very young, but her father was an utter no-show.



* {{Invisibility}}: Trixie possesses several ways of doing this with magic and she is ''very'' good at it. A second spell will cancel out the sound her hooves make when trotting.

* LiesToChildren: Not usually, but during ''Tales of Ponyville'', when she gives the "that's how everypony looked" explanation on her (''very'') 80s-esque appearance in an old photo, she leaves out the fact that "everypony" actually means a very select few.



* CasualKink: It's implied that she and Bon Bon have occasionally done things to "spice up" their love life.

* NervousWreck: Described as being particularly nervous a lot.



* TechnicianVersusPerformer: Given as the reason why she never just ''told'' anyone what the deal with the Symphony of the Moon and Sun is. Falling heavily on the "performer" side, she feels explaining how the song was meant to be would ruin it.



* AndThatLittleGirlWasMe: Tries telling Raindrops about his past, [[spoiler:to make her feel better after sleeping with Kindle]]. He's not good at hiding the fact he's talking about himself.
* TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest: [[spoiler:''Voice of the Sun'' has him explain that back home there was a girl he had a crush on, but she didn't return it. Since then, Bootheel's been doing whatever he can to fill the void. Mostly via sex, and plenty of it.]]

** Messing with education, for one. She's the first of the Bearers to take a dislike for Vicerein Puissance because the mare had been manipulating things in her province to make standardised testing easier. During their visit to Naqah, she's immediately furious when she hears Grev objected to the sultan's attempts to reform education.

* DreadfulMusician: According to Lyra, who is admittedly an expert.

to:

* DreadfulMusician: According Oh, yes. Trixie's singing is repeatedly said to Lyra, who is admittedly an expert.be dreadful. She's tone-deaf, has a limited repertoire and even less knowledge of music, and what few songs she does know she can just about hum. But since she can't always remember all of them, she just resorts to humming the same bit over and over.
* DrinkOrder: ''Monsieur Bourbon''. Failing that, or if she's not allowed alcohol, she likes strawberry soy milk. Now if only somepony stopped buying it all before she can...



* NotAMorningPerson: She's not as bad as Lyra, since she has to get up for her job, but several years living in Canterlot as Luna's student mean she's not at her best in the morning.



* TheLeader: Tended to take this role in ''Longest Night, Longest Day,'' usually being the one to come up with plans of action.

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Lyra neglected to mention the Bearer's temporary alliance with Corona at Tambelon. As a result, Bon Bon has several panic attacks on seeing Corona, since she thinks the mare is still the murderously angry mare she was when she got out of the sun.

* BreakTheCutie: Learning she isn't Celestia, and that the real Celestia is a raving nutjob who's first encounter with her ends with Celestia threatening to burn out her mind and enter it makes a severe dent in her cheerful persona. She does eventually recover, though.

** The death of Cartasole and their adopted children hit her so hard she sealed herself in a cave for a good few decades.



* JumpedAtTheCall: Grew up as an earth pony, but around when other foals were earning their cutie marks, she manifested her horn and wings. She was told that she was the reincarnation of all that was good in Celestia, and has accepted this as fact and is eagerly looking forward to becoming the sun deity.

* NeverGrewUp: In a sense. Despite being 20 years old in ''An Early Reunion,'' and so a full adult, Cadence has yet to earn her cutie mark.

* BigDamnHeroes: She makes a dramatic entrance at Tambelon [[spoiler:putting a dent in Bray's smug exterior and smashing apart the force of golems he had. Of course, the Bearers aren't exactly grateful...]]



* CelibateHero: Well, not "hero" at the moment, but part of the reason Corona is so offended by Cheerilee's flirting at her is because she finds the very idea of a ''peasant'' flirting with her outrageous. Being a thousand years out of touch does that to a pony. She does mention, when discussing Cadence, that she and Luna had tried in the past to have children, to no luck.



* EntertaininglyWrong: Part of the reason she's so distrustful of Luna in the modern day and age was because [[spoiler:Luna had used some of Tirek's power to become Nightmare Moon and fight her. Corona didn't know the Elements of Harmony had purged her of the dark magic when they banished her, and believes up until the Bearers angrily tell on Tambelon her that Luna's still corrupted.]]

-->'''RainbowDoubleDash:''' Within the context of the Lunaverse, there is ''nothing'' beyond Discord and the Elements; they're the top-tier movers and shakers... On a scale of 1 to 10, Discord is ''the guy making the chart'', completely outside any kind of power rating...And the Elements of Harmony are even ''stronger'', but limited by the fact that they have no (discernible) independent will of their own and so must be manipulated by (comparatively, even alicorns count for this purpose) mortal beings, who have mortal minds and mortal limitations on what the Elements can do.
