Princess Celestia is a character in the current My Little Pony
series. She is a tall winged unicorn with a white coat and tri-coloured mane, and she is notable for her much larger size in relation to other ponies
in the show.
Princess Celestia is one of the two rulers (her co-ruler being her sister Princess Luna
) who preside over Equestria
, the fictional land in which the My Little Pony
show is based. Princess Celestia functions as the head of state during daylight hours, and has many responsibilities including raising and lowering the sun each day. She also acts as a mentor / support figure to Twilight Sparkle
There has been no mention within the show as to why she is a princess and not a queen, but it has been unofficially acknowledged that this comes across as more 'friendly' to the target audience of the show.
Despite being posessed of formidable magical abilities she does have her limits as evidenced by certain episodes of the show. As with her sister she is also attributed with immortality.
She has a kind disposition and many positive attributes; but sadly she lacks a lot of character background, so more detail is difficult to provide.
Princess Celestia and Princess Luna form a type of governmental system known as a 'Diarchy'.
Princess Celestia is remarkable for being one of only three ponies with both wings and a horn. Her stature and status guarantee she stands out wherever she goes.
Princess Celestia is a pony well versed in the magic of friendship.
