Character Summary:
Sunset Joy was born into a declining high-class family in Canterlot. It was soon realized by her parents, Sir Stalwart and Starlight Damsel, that they named their foal rather ineptly; Sunset was always a sour, brooding filly, rarely laughing or smiling. Despite, she never got into trouble and always did whatever she was told to, obeying her parents and other adults without hesitation. She played with other foals and her siblings just like any other filly, but even if she had the greatest time, nopony could tell - all they saw was a small filly with a face as expressionless as a mask.

Her family had a tradition of serving Equestria as officers and soldiers; though her family had been declining and losing much of its' former glory, this tradition was still strong, as evidenced by Sir Stalwart, Joy's father, who was a knight of the Order of Dawn, a knightly order outside of the Royal Guard; outside, they are sworn to the Empress and carry out her will, but in truth, they were a collection of rebellious nobles attempting to overthrow the tyrant.. Her older siblings, Dawnlight, became an artillery officer, and she rose into the rank of a lieutenant, while her brother, Starscry, joined the Royal Guard as a medical officer.

Sunset herself joined the Royal Guard as well, and her dedication to duty and endless resolve earned her respect among her peers, and as years passed, the young mare was promoted time and time again, until she was made a Captain of the Guard after proving herself multiple times in the eyes of the Empress. It wasn't until she was made a Captain of the Guard that the treachery of the Order of Dawn came into light, and the Empress, wishing one last show of loyalty from her newmade captain, sent Sunset to raid their hideout.

Unknown to her, Sunset's father was the leader of the Order, and after having cut down the rebellious knights, the Captain met with the Knight-Commander Stalwart. They spoke for long, alone in the Knight-Commander's chambers, but ultimately, only Sunset emerged, bloodied and tears in her eyes, having proved her undying love and devotion to the Princess.

After the news spread, both of Sunset's siblings left the military in disgust and found their own ways of fighting the tyranny, but Sunset remained, as resolute and unflinching in her duties as ever, or so it would seem. After many raids and executions, her faith in the Empress has begun to waver, and her guilt finally surface..

Sir Stalwart, now better known as Stalwart the Betrayer after the agenda of the Order of Dawn came to light, was murdered by Sunset Joy in the Order's stronghold of Mournhope Citadel. Sunset was very close to Stalwart until his death, but in the end, duty meant more to her than family bonds.

Starlight Damsel has denounced her daughter, and is imprisoned in the dungeons of the Royal Palace for usurping the Throne, and safekeeping enemies of the state. Sunset and Damsel haven't spoken in years.


Sunset Joy is thoroughly a difficult pony to converse with. She rarely banters, and often gets straight to business; her eyes are empty, dull pits that stare disturbingly at others. She neither smiles nor scowls, retaining a collected, blank expression that betrays no emotion underneath, and her voice is a tranquil, creepy monotone that sends shivers down the spines of her underlings. Clad in silvery full-plate and armed with a sword large enough to cut a pony in half with a single fell swoop, it is understandable why Joy has such a reputation as a cold-hearted enforcer.

Underneath the facade lies a broken, socially inept filly, who hangs on to an authority for guard and safety. Sunset has emotions like anypony, she simply refrains from showing them. She both fears and loves Celestia and looks up to her for approval and acceptance, gaining pleasure from fulfilling her commands. On the other hoof, she loathes herself for having murdered and mutilated so many innocents, including her father, and it's not uncommon to find the markings of self-inflicted wounds upon her.
