Chiffon Veil EqG character design by mayorlight Chiffon Veil EqG character design by mayorlight
I'm not really one for creating fan O.C.'s - heck, I don't even have a "ponysona." In my fanfics, I typically leave the extras unnamed and nondescript beyond one or two notable traits.

Chiffon Veil (technically/retroactively) first appeared as the unnamed belly dance instructor in my first Equestria Girls fanfic Cheering Section. I would eventually bring her back and flesh her out in my third fanfic Parting the Veil as well as Beautiful.

I loosely based Chiffon Veil on Suhaila Salimpour. While I've decided that she has brown hair, I want to avoid making her look too much like Saffron Marsala. I also describe her as "being the same age as Principal Cinch, possibly older, but radiating a youthful aura." At the very least, this ought to give my readers a better idea of what she looks like.

mayorlight I wouldn't mind seeing an in-color version of this picture. Do let us know when it's been made, won't you, please?

Also, is it possible to have a picture showcasing Ms. Veil (and her students) in their dance attire as well as their normal, everyday outfits (whether it's in color or not)?

Also, not to act as a member of the grammar police. However, it's pronounced Saffron Masala. No 'r' in her name.

mayorlight  You know, for a then-unknown and unnamed extra set in a fanfic, she looks incredibly pretty. Good on you for basing her on the likes of Ms. Suhalia Salimpour as she is both beautiful and incredibly intelligent, much like Ms. Chiffon Veil, here.

2 questions: What was it that spurred on the creation of this character?  


Is it possible that we may see Ms. Veil in color so that we could see what she may look like within the colorful setting of the Equestria Girls universe (and / or possibly in any kind of belly dance-themed regalia)?

I ended up fleshing her out when I began writing Parting the Veil.

If time permits and inspiration willing, I wouldn't mind doing a color pic of her - although I imagine her dance outfit as being relatively modest (she's not one to upstage her own students after all).

Sometimes there's a role for which no existing canon character quite fits and they're too important to leave as unnamed extras. For this, we must use OCs, however begrudgingly. Luckily, I think Chiffon does her job nicely. :D
