No relation to the Storm King.
I've been working with one of my close friends lately on some random, intriguing projects where we both work to design MLP characters of one another, with some input of course from the person themselves. This is a lot of how the Storm Queen here, who's yet to have a proper name, has come into existence in these past... what, two days? We kept bouncing ideas, he started to build this interesting character of me, deciding that I should be a winged unicorn, meaning of course by the standards of the G4-verse she resides in that she is royalty, and that her contribution to the world should be that she can control the weather. As he built this idea, I eventually ended up getting inspired myself - the design he'd come up with was entirely different, going with my usual, lighter coat colors and some of my usual cool colors in the rest of the pony. As he kept talking about her having this title of "-of the storms" though it painted an entirely different picture for me... and so you have my side of things.
Said friend of mine ended up falling in love with the design and said it perfectly fit me in its nuances. And I agree with him. Yes, the "crazy" face too, because sometimes being a little unstable is a ton of fun. If any of you watch Achievement Hunter, it's a bit similar to a Ryan brand of instability.
So, well, as fun as it's been there's been a reason I haven't made a winged unicorn character/persona myself in all this time. It wasn't because I didn't want to, I've always loved making winged unicorn characters, since long before it had the meaning it does now with G4. I stopped making them because
of the meaning they have, and more specifically, the way the rest of the fandom tends to react to "alicorn" OCs. It's just not something I've wanted to deal with. I am, however, very excited about this one.
We've ended up coming up with a ton of story for this character, so she's turned into someone who sort of, in a sense, banished herself
from Equestria back in the early days of Celestia's and Luna's rein, maybe even a bit before then. We're still working out the details. In her time away from Equestria she's remained isolated from it, and from the rest of ponykind, instead ruling over subjects of other species who chose to follow her as she uses her power over weather to bring water to the land. And, chances are the main show cast will end up meeting her via being called there by the map, seeing as the reason she left boils down to a friendship problem.
There is definitely more to this character, but that's all I want to say for now. I won't be the one writing this, though I of course will be very heavily involved in her portrayal - the aforementioned friend of mine will be writing her debut story into a pre-existing story he's been working on. Said friend is also a huge history buff and cares greatly for actual portrayals of things like societal structure and the usefulness of armour and such. He and I work together a lot to make sure that things make sense, while keeping and sometimes helping bump up the intrigue, and still avoiding falling into stereotypes. Storytelling and writing is a pretty big interest for both of us, though doing the actual writing part is... well, he does that a lot more than I do haha. I'll get there.
I hope you can look forward to meeting this character. She's quite something.
