Well, if we’re going to assume she may be related to one of the princesses, I have to bring up one odd line of thought.
Twilight is the student of Celestia, Princess of the sun. Yet her Cutie mark and theme are more associated with a coming night. (Stars and stuff.)
If such crosses over to this pony, then it makes more sense in my head that she’s be the pupil of Luna then Celestia.
Then again, I could just be looking for a reason to say a Prodigy of Luna could exist. So it’s possible that I’m biased.
(One Tangent though… anyone think that with the two overlapping shapes and the partially hollow center, her cutie mark looks sort of like an Eclipse? Or am I imagining it?)
Anyways, the idea that another “Royal Pupil” who has not gone nearly as far in her studies as Twilight (as in, just adopted the moment Luna came back) being sent to learn from the student who’s already finished her studies sounds… Kinda cool.
But I do have to say, if they try setting up for another Alicorn with this… I swear, They had better go through more seasons than three before they try pulling it over on us!
I’ll admit though, if they DO end up having her as a Royal Pupil, it will be hard to deny that we’ll know what she’s getting herself into.
…What I’d really want before then of course, is Dash to actually have a shot at a genuine position in the wonder-bolts first. And some other major stuff. Seriously, the others were here first, they should have a shot at their dreams before “The New Girl” has her dreams fulfilled.
I’m not sure where this Train of thought is headed.
Anyways, whoever did that Vector art had her look nice.
As for her possible element, seeing as her cutie mark is a bit like the ol’ yin-yang, a good bet would be balance. Of course, this is assuming she gets an element, which I’d consider a bit unlikely.
Isn’t Justice and balance two rather similar concepts? I mean, both can within reason be personified by Scales. Heck, just look at Libra!
History of Libra:
Libra, the Balance:
The Romans invented Libra and gave it importance as a constellation of the Zodiac. Libra was “the Scales of Justice” held by Julius Caesar. Later the scales became associated with Virgo, the Goddess of Justice.
For the record… Libra is the Seventh Zodiac and… Wait.. According to one site… Their “Friendship Planet” is the Sun…
While the Sixth Zodiac, also As we’ve just seen associated with a symbol of Balance and Justice… has the Moon as the “Friendship Planet”.
…What the? This is most likely a coincidence, but we can all see this kind of stuff is funny to see the connection in.
Twilight, the Sixth Element of harmony
to live in Ponyville (Actually, Magic is specifically said to be the Sixth Element by Twilight as she reads the book on the elements) ends up being all stars associated, as if she should be closer to the Moon. Matching up with Virgo, the Sixth Zodiac.
While this new Pony… Ends up with a Sun, and if she joins up, she’ll be the Seventh “Element”, Matching up with Libra.
Well… regardless of if this comes to pass or not, looking this deep into this is fun. Albeit pointless now that I’ve gone so far off from Actual analysis and into Mythological Symbolism in a short time-frame… And this being a show for “Little Girls” supposedly.
Edit: Oh god, more Virgo Stuff! Describes Twilight Perfectly!
Virgo is earthy and represents the sixth sign of the zodiac. You belong to a group of people known for their perfectionism and highly analytical minds. There’s a bit of a joke about how precise and demanding Virgos are but when you think about it, what’s wrong with being tidy, organised and clean? In a way, you are misunderstood and your attention to detail, your desire for excellence and hygiene is not as bad as some might think.
You make a wonderful impression with your skilful insights and broad-based knowledge. Simply put, you are a most interesting person to be with. When others get to know you a little more, you can be a fascinating person with all sorts of useful titbits of information.
So if that’s how things go… Should we be looking to see if the 7th Pony turns out to be Libra esque?
