, the Inventor. Cutie Mark: An abstract lightbulb with sunlike rays of light coming from the glass dome.
Her story is a simple one, the apprentice of an Earth Pony Engineer. Her masterwork that graduated her from his tutelage was her tactical hoofshoes, a simple yet elegant solution to help give non-unicorns easier handling of tools clearly designed for creatures with hands.
A brilliant, cheerful, yet easily-sidetracked adorkable young mare, she is rather socially awkward on account of spending most of her time in her workshop surrounded by various projects in varying stages of progress. May drop into cackling Mad Scientist
territory if badly stressed. Keeps irregular hours because of her tendency to be too deeply engrossed in her works. To earn her bits, she sells various kinds of light sources and her tactical hoof-shoes, and accepts commisions to create or be called upon for consultation on various projects.
Due to her engineering nature, she does not care for abstract sciences, and prefers things she can put to practical work in her inventions; nevertheless, she does not object to pimping things out or decorating them. One of things she hates most of all is investing too much effort into anything, only to lose it due to either a mistake or bad luck. While she doesn't have that many friends, she has at least a couple of dependable friends who have stood beside her.
She's also known as "Bri" to her friends, and teased with "Bride Dear" whenever she gets a crush on a cute stallion.
Bri does fine around most males, unless they manage to catch her fancy. You'll know she likes somepony when she gets flustered easily and/or a bit more exciteable around them.
I like to think of her as the kind of cute engineer who accidentally gets too technical when talking to folks until she catches herself and simplifies things, and she gets quite upset when somepony begins to doubt her irrationally.
She's also the sort who can get worked up when arguing about why her method of solving the problem is better, and absolutely hates to realize she wasted effort on a less-than-optimal solution when a simple way of fixing a problem presents itself.
She's also quite fond of hugs :3 An engineer with a huge wrench plushie XD
Possible projects: Gem-powered lights, Spark Lighters with gemstone power sources (well, better ones anyway), better alloys for metalwork, artificial winged "saddle", Gem-based power generators, metalwork, artificial horns, better flying machines, gem-powered enchanted "powered" armor (This last one would be her ultimate masterpiece).
My take on the timeline!
Pony Genetics, how do they work?
Snippet 1 of Story 1 :D
