I've been planning to write a MLP fanfic, being a big fan of the show myself, and I've decided to post what background I have for the story so far. Right now it's just a few terms to know as well as a bit of head-canon. Will update you when I've worked on it a bit more; until then, I'm open to opinions and comments.
Faust is the patron deity and creator of Ponykind, mother of the Divine Princesses, and creator of the world; also known as The Divine Mother, The First Mare, and The Bringer of Light.
The daughters of Faust and the sovereign rulers of the Pony Kingdoms.
Chosen Noble/Blessed Noble
A mortal blessed by Faust and given the powers of a Divine Princess; considered the adopted children of the Divine Mother Herself.
The darkness that existed before Earth, before space, before time, and even before Faust Herself; considered to be evil in its purest form.
The last remnants of what was once the all-encompassing Nether; historically known as the Remnant Vespers, or simply Remnant, but one particular Remnant has gained a form of sentience and has called itself Nightmare; possible connections to Nightmare Moon currently being investigated.
Not to be confused with Canis lupus (Grey wolf) or any subspecies. A malevolent forest spirit that takes the shape of a large wolf using natural materials, usually wood, but older specimens have been known to include rocks into their form, and Remnant infused Timber Wolves often include the flesh and bones of their kills into their form.
In desperate times multiple Timber Wolves can combine in order to form a Dire Timber Wolf.
Noble Dragon Code
A sacred code that is instinctively known by all Dragons, and is one of their most sacred ideals; a Dragon that fails to live up to The Code is considered to be nothing more than a mere beast by other Dragons. Little is known of Dragons, let alone the Noble Dragon Code, but Pre-Tribal texts have revealed the following tenets:
• Never steal a fellow Dragon's horde; if you wish to take it, then you must challenge the horde's current owner for it and defeat him or her in a duel of honor.
• Never take the Heart-Sworn of a fellow Dragon for yourself; the price is death by Windigo's breath.
• The greatest treasure to any Dragon isn't the largest horde of the most valuable treasures and tastiest gems, it is your Heart-Sworn and your offspring. Let who so ever places more value on wealth than family be forever cursed by Father Bahamut, and forced to never know the peace of the Eternal Dream.
• If someone, be they fellow Dragon, Pony, or otherwise, does you a service then you must repay this service in kind, either by offering part of your horde or providing a service.
• If someone, be they fellow Dragon, Pony, or otherwise, saves your life, then you are bound to serve them until the day you save their life.
• If someone, be they fellow Dragon, Pony, or otherwise, saves the life of your Heart-Sworn or your offspring, then you, your family, and your descendants, will be forever bound to protect the savior and his or her family and descendants for as long as each other's bloodline continues to breed true.
A spherical shaped creature approximately one hoof in diameter, and infamous for its ravenous appetite and its high rate of asexual reproduction.
