Cheyenne is a troublesome young mare if there ever was one- while she certainly looks like her mother's daughter, she's inherited her father's disposition as a sweet-talking, trouble-stirring, adrenaline junkie of an adventurer. As far as anyone knows, her airship is completely legal.... For now. Of course, that hasn't squashed the rumours of Cheyenne and her small crew making a name for themselves as smugglers and fences- but look at this sweet face. Is this the face of a pony who would lie to you?

.... Yes, it probably is, but that's not going to stop her from trying to talk her way out of a pickle. She's the cause of her mother's sudden sprouting grey hairs no doubt, so she does her best to keep any possible dirty dealings as far from the light of day as possible... After all, she's a completely reputable trader! She didn't spend ten years convincing her mother to let her buy her very own airship to blow it all on piracy and thieving... And giving her poor mother a heart attack.
Background -
Pirates don't often need to land, but eventually, they are bound to- to re-stock, for a change of scenery. Sometimes, it's simply to say you've been somewhere- to gain a few more exploits to brag across the seas. It was the latter that left Hoofbeard and his crew in Canterlot- not a very fitting place for a Pirate, but stocking the ship with rarer supplies, and the opportunity to see honest royalty, was temptation enough for a visit. 

It was there that Hoofbeard and Saffron met- at the Tasty Treat. It's said a man's stomach is the way to his heart- in this case, it was at least partially true, but how was a pirate to resist a beauty with confidence and backbone as well as talent? He'd made up his mind she must be his, and the rest is history- a sailor pony had little to offer, a pirate less, but persistence and genuine affection wreaks havoc on the heart. They were never exactly married, in fact, Cheyenne Bay- their firstborn- was quite a surprise. Vows were flimsy in the eyes of love, however, and seas are rough- Hoofbeard made his way to Canterlot any time his hooves found dry land, and his children never missed their father- during his long trips at sea, letters and presents found Saffron and their children, never far from his heart.

Cheyenne grew up ever daddy's little girl- living for his letters and tales of adventure, much to Saffron's dismay- adventures were dangerous, after all, especially for little fillies! Still, nothing would dissuade her after she got the bug in her ear, and there was never anything Cheyenne desired more than adventures on a ship of her own, wind in her mane... And at 21 years of age, she finally saved enough for a small airship of her own, and despite her mother's misgivings, Cheyenne began making a name for herself as Captain of the Spiced Delight and her crew as a trader- delivering goods both domestic and exotic all over Equestria and, recently, beyond.

Relationships -
    Saffron Masala - Cheyenne loves her mother and her mother loves her- however, the two often butt heads and do not often see eye to eye... Saffron means well, and just wants her daughter safe and closeby, but Cheyenne is just as headstrong as her mother and will follow her heart wherever it takes her, for better or worse.
    Hoof Beard - Daddy's little girl- while Hoofbeard rules the seas, Cheyenne hopes to one day rule the skies, and the pair have a close bond of secrets from poor Saffron and adventure.
Facts/Miscellaneous -
    - Cheyenne is a large pony- but all legs, slender with toned muscle, perfect for speed, endurance and acrobatics, though not so much brute strength.
    - Cheyenne owns a small aeroship she's lovingly dubbed the "Spiced Delight", with her mother and the Tasty Treat in mind.
    - She also commands a small crew- a northern Diamond Dog, "Jon the Ghost", and a pair of twin siamese cats, "Si" and "Am"
    - While Cheyenne began her business trading all over Equestria, she's recently begun branching out, attempting to gain a foothold in the Dragonlands, the Crystal Empire, and Griffenstone, among other places.
    - She makes many visits back home to Canterlot to regale tales of her travels and give gifts to her siblings and mother from all over Equestria and beyond.

Honestly, it's one I pulled out of the air from wanting both a Saffron and a Hoofbeard child.... Two birds with one stone? xD
I'm glad you like her, though!! It was a bitch to get a body color I was satisfied with but I daresay it was worth the work <3
