Rainbow Dash's Solar Exalted character doing some fancy flying.

Here's evidence that Rainbow Dash isn't the only Night Caste

Stealth? No
Larceny? No
Awareness? No
Enough Dodge and Athletics to make up for it? Hell yes.

Oh really? I'd be interested in seeing where it ended up actually, if you have a link.

And well... Orichalcum lined leather armor just got 20% cooler.

From Kkat:

"Are you a spy?"

Of course, Dash would be maximizing her panoply of Athletics Charms and would have Valor 5. She would probably invest a lot in Dawn favored abilities too.

Lightning Speed, Feather-foot Style and Increasing Strength Excercise (she did almost keep up with Applejack on raw power at times)... for sure.

Naturally some MA in there... heh Solar Bronco style (excelent idea that came up in the comments).

No. She's… Luna. One of the Celestial Incarna, just like her sister Celestia Invictus the Unconquered Sun.

Come on man, those two are as obvious as Twilight as a Twilight.

As someone who has played with the full athletics tree, she really is the only one who can embody the speed and agility the high level charms can accomplish. She just doesn't ever have much use for the Stealth charms.

You could also argue that when she gained her cutie mark and created the first rainboom, it would have been obvious to everyone that it was her had she not been masked by the Night caste anima power.

Thing is, Glories of the Most High: Maidens of Destiny featured a Celestial Martial Art that works on that sort of principle. The Crystal Chameleon style, which is less "Stealth by being sneaky" and more "Stealth by putting up a rave show and running past too quickly to see"

Rhanite Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My reasoning exactly. She was a good candidate for Dawn as well, but the Speed and Agility was too obvious to pass up.

If ever an event in the series depicted Exaltation... Sonic Rainboom.

Virtue: Valor
Virtue Flaw: Shattered Confidence
Condition: The character's capabilities are doubted.
Wracked by anxiety, the character becomes frightened to attempt any task and retreats into a quivering, near-catatonic heap of insecurity unless directly threatened.

Sounds a lot like the Lunar flaw Curse of the Whipped Dog. Also, how does Partial Control work in that case?

It's actually a Valor reflavoring of the "Heart of Tears" Compassion flaw. Mechanically, it would be roughly the same.

Be warned though... Fallout: Equestria is scary stuff, and everything you find out about the Ministry Mares is very, very posthumously (since it plays about 200 years after the world went kablooie) :p

Yes, that was my first choice but who else could concievably be Night Caste? Applej- *snrk* ok, I can't finish that with a straight face. Naw, Aubri (below) has the truth of the matter.

For all that Night has the stealth charms, they're also where you get Athletics and Dodge. Totally Dash.
