    Starlight Glimmer was born in one of the Equestrian unnamed villages. As a child she was very interested in magical arts. Interested enough to study it. Practicing spells is not easy thing but she had help from her one friend - Sunburst. Sunburst was a kid in her age who had pretty impressive magical potential and knowledge. Every pony discovers his talent in young age. In human terms of aging it would be five years old person. This talent means in which thing he's the best, his passion. Talent appears on the body as a image of something. Like tattoo. Sunburst got his talent at very young age and was taken away to the magical academy. Starlight as a child didn't fully understand why he abandoned her. After many years the same mentally unstable Starlight took control over some random village. Using her superior magical abilities she forced everybody to live under her leadership. She has made Communistic regime where everybody was "equal". Years later Twilight Sparkle and her friends freed the village from Starlight's control. A noble act which caused creation of new powerful enemy.
