Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: DR 15 is crazy good, the movements speeds are faster than what they should be, and I have no idea what the "cloud" is for or why one would need it at all.

Pegasi are violent and brash, but get on well with anyone. They learn to fight at a young age, and it shows, but unlike Earth Ponies they actively befriend predators, sometimes fighting alongside them in battle. They are also proficient brewers...

Physical Description[edit]

Pegasi are the smallest of the three pony races, but benefit from their wings and an incredible speed. They are similarly bright colours to their cousins, but their skill at evading or dealing damage has meant that only a fool would hunt a pegasus.


A Pegasus tends to get along with anyone, and since they often hire themselves off as mercenaries it is rare to find two towns with similar opinions on them. Griffons and other ponies tend to be their closest friends.


Unlike the other ponies, Pegasi share a strong moral code, and are usually Lawful, but favour no good-evil alignment.


Pegasi have the unusual ability to shape clouds to their whim. They either live in grand cloud-cities in the sky, or among other sentient races, but some are proficient travellers.


Pegasi worship any god, but especially Celestia, Luna, Fharlanghn or Ehlonna


Pegasi speak the language of any races nearby, and have their own language, which among other pony species has become a standard for financial or war-based conversation.


Pegasi take names from a mark they gain on their flank at about the age of six, and until then are named after various weather conditions or phenomena.

Male names:

Female names: Derpy Hooves, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy
