Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, or Cadance for short, is an Equestrian Looper.
Cadance was born as a pink pegasus pony, but later ascended to alicornhood. She has a tricolored cream, pink, and purple mane, and her wing-tips fade into light purple.
In the baseline, Cadance was set to marry Twilight's brother, Shining Armor, but was kidnapped by the Changeling Queen, Chrysalis, and held prisoner in the abandoned mines underneath the castle. With Twilight's help, she was able to escape and banish Chrysalis from Equestria.
For a while, Cadance was known for her... enthusiastic shipping of others and her obsession of weddings, but recently she has revealed that she hadn't felt that way for a while, and only carried on with the charade because she found it funny. Lately, she has dropped the act and become far more reasonable.
- Love magic: Cadance's special talent spreads love and compassion to those around her. Among other things, her talent allows her to recognize the strength of a pair's relationship, and sometimes give them a nudge. Her love-fueled magic is incredibly powerful.
- Alicorn transformation: Cadance first ascended when she was very young, while reversing a love-stealing spell cast by Prismia, a cruel and jealous sorceress, with a pendant made of Cosmic Spectrum (which amplifies emotions) as the catalyst. Cadance's love magic, channeled through that same pendant, was able to overcome Prismia's hatred and bitterness, and helped her to become a good pony; it also triggered her initial ascension.
