---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Info on Vella:
Family :
Sharp Wing - Dad - Bat Pony
Calm Star - Mom - Earth Pony
Gender : Female
Age : 22
Name : Vella Star
Race : Earth Pony
Birth Place : Echoing Mountains
Voiced Interview available here : www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mnqhrx… or lakword.deviantart.com/art/Vel…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Attribiutes :
- Vella is very talented. She is able to play on many instruments like a pro. Still she prefers to use her voice rather than instruments while preforming
- She is very talented composer and creating songs and music is something she never learned but always was able to do very good without even putting much effort into it
- Vella voice is sweet when she speaks with others but when she sings she gets everyones attention. Even some beasts would calm down to listen to her song
- She is very talented actor. She can play any role and even get into character without much practicing. She only needs a bit information about this person habbits and she can play a role
- Even thou she dint had much time with her mother and father and her childhood was stolen from her she managed to learn how to be a proper parent. She most of time dont even realize that she is a perfect exaple of good mother

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Weaknesses :
- She is not very good with working in team. Finding someone who can work long enough with Vella without quiting is almost imposable
- She is quite messy. As much as fancy she looks she almost never clean after herself
- Vella got quite a weakness for socks. She loves to wear them and even more she loves to see others in them. Its like one of those things she cant resist
- She smells like her socks most of the time and she hates being forced to bath
- Vella is quite a coward and prefers to avoid any type of risk if possable
- She is extreamly afroid of the dark. When its dark around for too long she loses her mind for a while and during the panic attack she clings to any light source she can spot and stays in that state until normal light returns
- Vella also got quite a bad temper. She gets angry really eaisly and keeping her in one room with certian Zebra might result in quite a rage explosion
----------------------------------------------------------------

Vella since she was born was always attention hungry and could never get enough to satisfy her. Especially since she was living only with her mother quite far from any village. Vella was train to be gardener and herbalist like her mother but she could never understand how to do it and she dint enjoy playing in the garden either. She found more joy in sinning and playing instruments she found in the basement which did beong to her father she never even meet. Her mother dint really wanted to share much information about him with Vella. After few years she only knew he was a bat pony and his name. Rest was never told to her. Even with this big secret going on she had quite good relationship with her mom even. Despite Vella many complains about being lonley in the middle of nowhere.

After Vella had her 8th birthday her mother decided to give up on forcing Vella to take over the herb farm and supported her more with her music and acting skills. Vella had her mother support and would be sended to join one of the actor groups. Sadly she never had a chance to do so as about a week before she would go her mother became very ill and none of medicine they had did work and they could not really aford nothing better. Since they were quite isolated it was very hard to get any help either as delivery service which was providing supplies and money for herbs was there every 2 weeks. Calm Star health was getting critical very fast. Vella was just a child but she did all she could to help her mother. Calm Star knew its over for her and she dint want to sacrafice Vellas future for few days of comfort for herself. She had a serious talk with Vella same evning when she decided. Vella might not now remember much of her past and her memories of her childhood are blurry but she did remember this specific moment when her mother gave her neckles of sapphires and a big sapphire gem inserted in gold and ruby frame and then told her those words

"-Vella my dear... You have a talent I dint appriciate for too long and I think I failed you because of that... I... I know I wont be there for you much longer. But I beg you... Do what you were born to do and enjoy life. Live as you wanted to live and not as I wanted you to... I know it will be hard for you and many will try to make you feel like youre not worth anything. But dont listen to them and follow your dreams. I wish I could be there for you but I know its over for me...

- But mom! I can take care of you! I work harder on farm. You get better. Soon will help arrive and you... and you *Cries*
 
- Now now... Dont cry my little star... Mommy will always be there with you in your heart... Here... Take this

- But mom... Its your tresure... You said you dint even allow dad to touch it

- Its yours now... I want you one day when you become a great star in the showbusiness to preform in this neckless... I cant be there with you but at least I want you to have something to remind you of me and that I belive in you... You already made me proud and nothing would make me more happy than the fact you are happy with your life and your dreams realized"

Vella did spend all night with her mother which passed in her sleep next morning. She did bury her mom in her favorite place in the garden and waited few days for the delivery cart whcih was late. Food supplies did ran out and Vella was forced to make her way to the town alone. She knew the way a bit so she packed whatever she found usefull and went out giving last sad look at her home she knew she wont see for a long time. She did travel alone for 2 days but she lost her way almost on the start. She ended up in diamong dog territory and worst has happen. She was captured by one nasty dog who found her neckless quite interesting so he stole it but since Vella was alone he took her as well and used as a maid in his lair. Vella next 5 years were a nightmere as she did grew up in a dark cave and only when she was allowed to go outside was to only to carry gems. Most of her time she had to spend in a cage or cleaning filthy cave. She hated cleaning as no matter how many times and how well she did it it was dirty in a moment again. Her oppresor did find a big joy in scareing her when it was dark and telling her scary stories before sleep no matter if she wanted to hear them or not. Vella was not allowed to sing and she barley talked as the guests of diamond dog were not any better. Only thing what was keeping her strong was the promise she made to her mother. And she decided to risk everything. She was slowly digging her way out of the cage and masked the little tunel for weeks. When the owner of the lair was away and he left her in cage alone she took her chance and ran out of that disgusting place. She only did stop in one of the rooms where diamond dog was keeping his favorite loot and she took her neckless back

Vella after her great escape which did last like 4 days of constant running. Managed to reach a big city. She was dirty, hungry and tired. And she dint have a single bit with her. Only thing she could do was sining. She did make few songs and was preforming for a while. She made quite a few coins from it and she managed to buy herself some food and make herself look a bit more clean again. She did invest in few small instruments she was able to play and was earning for living like that for few weeks. One day she saw socks on the display in a shop and she then discovered how much she enjoys to wear those. She loved the soft feeling and warm and the colors. Its when she discovered the strange part of her but she prefered to keep is for herself. When she had enough she did travel from town to town preforming until she was able to buy a place for her own. She did avoid traveling alone and during nights. Her stay in Diamond dog lair made her be afrad of the dark and a bit paranoid about being alone. Vella did buy a house near Everfree forest from which she did try to start own band but it always failed. Her goal to become a famous was only thing in her mind. But always the group she was managing was complaining and fighting each other. Vella needed someone who can act well and she needed quite a few actors but it was imposable for her to find anyone like that... Until she learned about changelings...

One day when she was coming back home she saw a little changeling laying in the middle of the forest. It was Flik after his first magic backfire. He was teleported so far from danger of his hive but he was so badly wounded and exhausted he did faint imidietly. Vella found him and took him home being sure its a child who was beaten badly or attacked by timberwolfs. She did read a bit to find what is wrong with him having holes in legs and strange looks. Then she noticed he did chance looks during sleep into many difrent forms or cast 3 copies of himself which also changed forms next to him. She could not belive her eyes and luck. She quickly did chek in books for information and then she found out what Flik was... He was not a changeling for her. He was a 1 perfect actor who can preform for entire team if she teaches him right. He was her ticket to fame. She did plan to use him and his skills but before she could even speak to him he woke up and escaped in panic before even seeing her. vella new goal was to track down Flik no matter what  and continue with her plan. She dint have much luck in few next weeks but when she did read newspaper about a lone changeling making trouble in Canterlot she sold her house and both herself a cart powerd by solar power and went on her mission to find him. She did track him finally in one of the towns east from Everfree forest. She did openly try to kidnap Flik who was afroid of her even after she did explain him she did save him. She was sure Flik owns her that much and hes hers now. However she was stoped by Vince the Zebra who just  blocked her way to Flik on each attempt she did to capture him.

Vella gave up her attempts to capture Flik while Vince was around so she did follow them from far away keeping an eye all the time waiting for a good moment. She finally had a chance after about a month after last encounter when Vince went to his hometown leaving Flik with his old new friends... Twins Shadow and Specter. Vella took first chance she had and kidnaped Flik during one of his training with Specter. She would succed if it wasnt for her lack of preperations that battery in her cart could not last for entire trip out of the Everfree forest... And that Flik can now better control his magic. They ended up being attacked by timber wolfs and seperated from the cart. Darkness in the forest during night was only thing required for Vella fear of darkness to take over. Flik would be free and leave Vella to her fate after that if he dint feel sorry for her. He stayed with her protecting her from dangers during night hopeing that Specter will find him soon

(Rest of story is still under RP)
