The characters of ''FanFic/{{Whispers}}'', a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic by Chrono_Ryono.

[[folder:Protagonists]]
!!Arcanus
* BerserkButton: Mentioning his [[SpoiledBrat brothers]], disrespecting his mother or questioning his mentor. The former is enough to [[INeedAFreakingDrink drive him to accept the princess's offer of wine, something he attested moments earlier to have no taste for.]]
* CuteBookworm: [[{{Expy}} Just like Twilight Sparkle]], although in this case his looks are given special attention by several characters including his own mother.
* {{Expy}}: WordOfGod freely admits he is based almost entirely on Twilight Sparkle, with a bit of Fluttershy's self-image issues mixed in.
* GenreBlind: He doesn't think much of ThePowerOfLove and ThePowerOfFriendship at first, despite living a setting built on them.
* GenreSavvy: Apparently he's become this by spending most of his time with his nose in the books. He hasn't done much with it though, besides [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] a [[spoiler:subverted]] case of InnocentInnuendo.
* LoveAtFirstSight: The first time he sees Lady Stella Artois, and yes, his inner critic is ''very'' self-aware as to how cliche this is.
* SociallyAwkwardHero
* SquishyWizard
* SuperSpeedReading: Stated to be a "cutie mark-powered super speed reader."
* YouNeedToGetLaid: Taken UpToEleven when Celestia essentially issues a ''royal decree'' to this effect, although it's given a G-rated disguise: "to study the magic of love." [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Which doesn't resemble Twilight Sparkle's first character arc]] [[BlatantLies at all]].

!!Moonthistle
* AnythingThatMoves: She flirts with practically everyone, single or married, mare or stallion, stranger or ''her best friend''.
* BiTheWay: Her attraction to Arcanus is clear, but she also hints that she'd take a shot at Stella herself if no one beats her to it.
* ChivalrousPervert: She technically solicits a callmare (that she finds very attractive) and opts to do nothing with her, refusing to take advantage of a [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold poor single mother]]. She also states that, despite her libido, it's actually been awhile since she last got laid.
* CrazyPrepared: She carries a saddlebag with her (including to formal events like a debutante ball) that seems to contain [[HiddenSupplies a wide array of tools and reagents]].
-->''"Ever find thyself thinking 'gosh, this would be so much easier if I had a screwdriver?' [[LampshadeHanging I made a list."]]''
* DeadpanSnarker
* HiddenDepths: Drops her usual playful innuendos to perform a flawless SherlockScan in chapter 7.
* MakingASplash: She attempts to cast a water spell in chapter 8 called [[ShoutOut Hydro Pump]].
* RagsToRiches: It's implied that her family actually ''gambled'' their way into the ranks of nobility. This is possibly a reason why Aurora constantly belittles her.
* SophisticatedAsHell
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Aurora.

!!Aurora Borealis
* AlwaysSecondBest: Despite apparently having many accomplishments to her name, including being a senior student of Princess Celestia, she clearly feels this way toward [[AloofBigBrother her older sister Belphegor]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Likes to play this way toward Moonthistle, although it rarely ends in her favor.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: She seems to have developed one of these as a result of [[AlwaysSecondBest living in her sister's shadow]], and [[VitriolicBestBuds passive-aggressively directs it at Moonthistle]].
* GloryDays: She used to be quite an athlete, to the point of having the fastest gallop in the kingdom and being known as the Red Mare (almost certainly a reference to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hare Red Hare]]). However, she insists she's "outgrown" such silly games and intends to pursue a career in academics.
* PlayingWithFire: Hinted to be her special talent, and a powerful one at that. The fire she lights is almost strong enough to ''melt a fireplace poker.''
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Moonthistle.

!!Silvermane
* ButLiquorIsQuicker: The reason she wound up pregnant with Arcanus (and possibly his brothers).
* GenreSavvy: Identifies Aurora's InferioritySuperiorityComplex quite easily, and avoids provoking it further.
* HighClassGlass
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Produces [[BloodFromTheMouth blood]] at one point.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Being a Victorian-esque upper-middle class lady of taste doesn't preclude her from using such language as "laying it on thick," "bingo!" and referring to socialization as "mingling."

!!Stella Artois
* LoveAtFirstSight: Possibly. Arcanus' feelings were far more blatant, but the fact remains they were married by the next chapter.
* ShoutOut: Her name refers to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stella_artois the beer]].
* SophisticatedAsHell

[[folder:Antagonists]]
!!Nightmare Moon
* {{ActionPrologue}}/{{StarterVillain}}: She appears in chapter 1 and is defeated in chapter 2, just like in the actual show.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Her desperate last attempt at throwing Celestia off guard. [[YouShouldKnowThisAlready It doesn't work.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: She interrupts Celestia's first attempt to use the Elements of Harmony by charging her.
* DoomedByCanon
* EvilIsNotAToy: She was created when Luna recklessly immersed herself in unstable dark magic.
* GreenEyedMonster
* VillainousBreakdown: Starts off a SmugSnake, but her calm facade begins to crack as Celestia pushes her buttons. She completely goes to pieces just before her defeat.
