Let us begin!
Fact 1: Dream was 20 yrs of age she left home to join a nomadic gypsy group called the hulta, she was with them for two years before being encased in the amber of an ancient magic tree for 1,500 yrs. She has been living in modern day equestria for the last 3 yrs following a team of archaeologist teleporting her out of the amber and is now 1,525 yrs old in reality.
Fact 2: Dream has two sisters whom lived out their lives while she was away, her younger sister Minuette; a musically inclined painter married an architect and together they set up different clock towers to play a different orchestral piece of a different song each day at 12. Her older sister Seashell met a Mercolt while diving for pearls to use in her jewelery making business off the reef close to Maretonia. They secretly met on the beach close to her childhood home for many years before she took a potion and married and moved to under the sea. Both had 2 children and many grandchildren followed.
Fact 3: The hulta give directions and navigate by the sun and stars more so than using terms such as 'north, west, right, left' so instead of 'to the north on the right' it would be 'starboard of the sun' or to 'follow the north star' depending on what time of day they were moving. So Dream had to learn to navigate in the same way. A feat that also ended up in handy while escaping from pirates in a row boat, but that's another story...
Fact 4: Dream always had a heightened sense of touch from her connection to the earth on flat ground from the time she was young. However, with the shifting of sand to walk through for years followed by being trapped underground for over a thousand years, all Dream's senses are super heightened! She can sense creatures within a 3 mile radius and can control plants within that same range, her eyes are far more sensitive to light so she now usually sleeps through the middle of the day and is awake through the night, the same reason has left her skin prone to sunburn. She see's or hears the smallest movement/noise, she will freeze and go on high alert.
Fact 5: Even before her senses got heightened, Dream was prone to being jumpy at loud noises but since her release she's developed astraphobia which is a fear of thunder and lightning. Lightning not so much but a clap of thunder has Dream diving under the nearest crouch height furniture piece. Even the clatter of loud pot pans will make her hair stand on end though.
Fact 6: Part of why Dream likes to garden is she's also a cooking fan and often grows most of her own ingredients. Recipes for dim sum, stirfry, curry, gyyros, chicken mushroom florentine, ect. Different pieces she learned or tried on her travels. Baking's a favorite weekend hobby though cause Dream has a really bad sweet tooth she has to reign in from time to time. Still, the plant's also serve the purpose of use in her natural healing recipes that she uses to cure anything from illness, injury, and aches.
Fact 7: Contrary to belief, the 'Sage' part of my name is refering to the plant called 'sage' not the wise title given to elders. 'Dream Sage' is based off the very plant I have as my cutie mark known as Clary Sage. A member of the sitiva genus of plants that in medieval times due to it's hallucinatory effects was believed to encourage lucid dreaming to even visions of the future. The same goes for Dream's Shadow Manifestation DaturaWeed as the name Datura is latin for 'nightshade'. A plant much like Clary Sage aside from it's a poison and is known for causing horrifying hallucinations.
Fact 8: The navy blue in Dream's main is temporary hair dye as I've explained before to some. It's a bit of a problem in that Dream also loves to walk around in the rain (minus any lightning or thunder) and the blue washes out with water easily. So any time Dream gets splashed or goes out in the rain it's guaranteed to wash out. However she also straightens her main and tail every day so after her hair dries naturally it also gets lots of curls and waves in it.
Fact 9: Dream is exceedingly small and stands about 1/3rd the height of an average modern pony. The ponies of Maretonia also have slightly thicker coats living in mountain ocean coasts so Dream gets quite fluffy in the winter which she struggles to control with anti-frizz and bundling up. Doesn't help much. Just don't try and rest your elbow atop her head due to her short stature, no one likes someone else's pits in their face and she will aim for the ribs right next to her.
Fact 10: Dream is one of few ponies that can climb trees on their own. While Dream could lower the branches down to just lift her up, she finds it more worth while to work her way up on her own so she can check the tree over for parasites or virus's on it. She will even jump from the branch of one tree to another if it's safe, has a good sense of her center of gravity and is quite graceful from when her mom made her go through cotillion training.
