"...among the many weapons I have seen in my adventures in the distant lands, all pale in comparison to the mysterious and legendary weapon wielded by Celestia, Princess of the Sun, and confounded was I that the most beautiful and destructive of all the armaments ever witnessed was closer to me than I had ever imagined.
Forged using the five elements of Harmony, Celestia created a hammer from the power of the defeated "Old God", Skoll, the Sun-Ender. A terrifying wolf the size of a house, as black as the night sky and a maw of ravenous hunger. Stalker of the sun.
As with its previous body, The hammer was forged of pitch black, becoming a solid, unknown metal. Runes engraved on every side, and shines with an inner core of purified light. The weapon acts with a mind of its own. It refuses to be touched by anyone but its owner, firing off strong kinetic waves at any who approach it with the intent to touch it, forcing them back. However, it is elusive as it is magnifiscent, returning to the sun by hurtling at lightning speed back into the sky when dismissed. The ironic resting place of the hungry wolf, until it is called, plummeting down from the heavens and smashing the ground in front of Celestia as it lands.
Combined with Luna wielding with the elements of Harmony, and the combat prowess of Princess Celestia, surely we stand a chance against Discord and his ilk. Surely we can unite the masses under one banner? I certainly hope to do what I can, for tomorrow we fight..."
Excerpt from Starswirl the Bearded's journal.
Piece I've had in my mind for a while now. Just thought I'd add some flavor text into it too.
Both Skoll and the hammer have been adapted into the story from nordic legends.
Skoll being the chaser of the sun, a giant cloud-like wolf that would chase the sun (being drawn by a charriot)
Hati, its brother, chases the moon.
The hammer was inspired by all awesome two handed war-hammers and also Mjollnir, hammer of Thor, the Thundergod.
Except that Thor's is a whimpy little one handed mace.
Celestia wields Two handed Warhammers, FUCK YEAH.
tl;dr = Pony Nord Hammer Wolf
