Ebony is a learned unicorn mare.
She has a naturally black coat and mane, but dyes it yellow for contrast. As a filly, she wears brown contacts.
She keeps her black coat, but now her mane is orange. She no longer wears the brown contacts.
Ebony was born to Octavia about nineteen years ago. She is the fraternal twin sister of Ivory. As a child, she was often treated more like a magic charm than an actual filly, due to her unusual coloring. Ebony had always wanted to actually do something with her life instead of sitting around. Her sister, Ivory, had always wanted to get out more too, but she was too sensitive to heat.
Without having to pay for school, their mother used them almost exclusively for dressing up instead. They had an abundance of fluffy dresses, which boosted their self esteem when they were finally enrolled in school at the age of six. She was enrolled with her sister. The first day was rough. The teacher kept her inside under her mother's rule. She was advanced in music, after hearing her mother play so often. The music teacher, Merrilee, asked Ebony to be her full-time assistant, along with Ivory. This was her job and she was paid a great deal for it.
This was her only job until Merrilee died.
Ivory and Ebony were devastated by this, but nonetheless moved on. They moved on with school like everyone else. After they were sixteen, they no longer stayed with Octavia. They waved goodbye and went one their way. Ivory and her sister didn't go to college. They decided to be travelling music players. They were joined by a mysterious mare named Mahogany.
