I could see her using the Pearl Courtesan Style... scarfs, jewelry, fans and fashion accessories as lethal weapons!

More to the point, Pearl Courtesan Style weaponizes CHARISMA. Absolutely perfect for an Eclipse like Rarity.

From Kkat:

And, of course, Rarity as Eclipse Caste. Perfection!

I love how you have used their Cutie Marks as their Anima Banners in this series. And the artwork is really very impressive. Again, thank you!

Rarity, as seen recently, apparently has Martial Arts as a favored ability.

The cutie marks in the anima banners seemed like the best step at the time - since animas take the shape of something iconic to the exalt and all that

Well, martial arts is always handy for aggressive negotiations...

What is 'Dreaming Pearl Courtesan Style'?

It's a Celestial Martial Art from the Exalted RPG that focuses on using dance, grace and Geisha-style props to execute dazzling, ephemeral maneuvers that leave foes uncertain if they just saw a beautiful performance, got their asses kicked....or both. A skilled practitioner can notch steel with a paper fan, and bowl over a horse with the elegant swoosh of a silk sash.

...Oh, and at the pinnacle of mastery they can transform into a massive multi-eyed serpent-beast who hears truths and lies like musical notes and can fly. O__O

Thanks for that explanation. Heh, I wonder what Rarity would think about that pinnacle ability! "Oh, dear, please tell me my scales match."

Of course Spike would love Rarity being able to transform into a semi-draconic creature.

Not quite *all* the way. She also grabbed a number of Archery charms.

Craft (Wood), I'm thinking? That cover's weaving... either that or Craft (Air) for the jewelry... or both.

Virtue: Temperance
Virtue Flaw: Melodramatic Hermit
Condition: Others exploit the character's self-denial to support their own excess.
The character retreats into self-imposed exile in the most dramatic fashion possible, where she wallows in self-pity.

Hee hee. Rarity binds Fluttershy to an Oath during Green Isn't Your Color.

Also, I must know...is that a Collar of Dawn's Cleansing Light? Because if so...BAM! Most appropriate Artifact EVAR.

For those of us not familiar with the setting/game could you give a non-mechanical description of what that artifact does?

:iconsaddlesoapopera:
SaddlesoapOpera Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
It is a minor artifact that makes its wearer perpetually clean and coiffed - they could wear the same clothing for weeks, abstain from bathing and wade through a stinky bog, and still come out fresh and pressed and ready for a grand ball. It is THE Artifact for Rarity. :D

It would be one she would VERY much want... doesn't seem like something she HAS in the show.
So... yeah, in an actual Exalted game, she would totally have that.

I played this once (a very long time ago)! I was the... I think it's the Twilight (Spellcaster) caste, 'cept we didn't quite get to the point where I could cast much. I wasn't any good... I didn't even know how to put together Combo abilities until well after everyone else had theirs set.

Anyway, it's pretty cool, and the lavendar/gold color scheme suits her nicely.

Ah Sorcery... takes a while before you even get more than one or two spells, they're quite situational, most of them (even the ones in the Black&White Treatises) but when you do get to use them they're frighteningly powerful.

Thanks, yes it was a pure stroke of luck on the color scheme (kind of a by-the-seat-of-my-pants deal) but I'm glad it worked so well.
