Name: Mirage aka: Mira First Appearance:Ponycon Twitter (July 22, 2016); Ponycon: New Beginnings (2016) Species: Draconequus Age Range: Adolescent Height: Unknown, taller than an average-sized equine (presumably interchangeable) Weight: Unknown (presumably interchangeable) Residence: Friendship Park, Manehattan, Equestria Occupation: Trickster, Artist, Designer, Storyteller, Ponycon Staff, Mascot Affiliations: Bowtie, Tiebreaker, Ponycon, various residents and national heroes of Equestria
Years ago, a peculiar egg was taken from an unknown location, and was transported among others to Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns. As part of an entrance exam into the academy, the egg was hatched by a unicorn, bringing an infant draconequus into the world. This unexpected event shocked those in the room, and eventually the young Mirage was taken in by a facility that cataloged mysterious creatures in Equestria. She was presumably raised here, and unlike the other creatures being studied, was given more freedom to explore while under the watchful eye of a scientist. However, she was still prohibited from truly exploring the wonders of Equestrian society, such as attending school with others.
One day, after overhearing the scientists studying her, Mirage inadvertently discovered her magic powers, and utilized them to sneak away from the facility to finally engage herself in the world beyond. Upon arriving in Ponyville, however, she experienced an unfortunate meeting with a civilian who was shocked by her appearance, causing the innocent Mirage to realize the world isn't as lighthearted as she thought. Ever since, she grew up in a society where her very presence led to discrimination, forever changing her outlook on the world and causing her to develop a cold personality and a sense of duplicity towards any species she encountered. Mirage would continue to be insulted and taken advantage of... until the day she finally let loose and became an unrelenting force of chaos and trickery, as well as a bane to all those around her.
With her new personality, astute mind and ever-developing abilities, Mirage pursued a solitary life of reckless indulgence through trickery. She enjoyed every bit of it, until the day she met Bowtie: a pegasus formerly involved the then-dissolved, world-renowned Ponycon event. The two did not first meet under good circumstances, and soon Mirage dedicated her time to endowing Bowtie with as many series of unfortunate events as possible; though majority of the time, these proved ineffective at ruining Bowtie's daily life. After catching word of Bowtie and her new friend Tiebreaker reviving the Ponycon event, Mirage took it upon herself to "volunteer" for the event, with the intention of sabotaging it from within.
As time went on during development, Mirage actually grew fond of working alongside her partners in what became a judgement-free zone; however, this did not stop her intention of wanting to ruin Ponycon, as even Mirage still saw herself as a "monster" within. After assaulting the venue host with a prank and effectively evicting Ponycon from the premises, Mirage resumed her lonely, secluded life. However, through Tiebreaker's encouragement and words of inspiration, as well as learning of Bowtie's true passionate feelings for her, Mirage made up with her new friends, became the event's lead artist, and alongside her new family, helped put on an amazing weekend-long show for ponies, gryphons and everyone else to remember fondly.
Befriended Bowtie & Tiebreaker, and overcame her fear against discrimination.
Successfully enacted revenge against her double-dealers.
Became incredibly proficient in art, design and storytelling.
Was promoted from volunteer to head artist, as well designer for venue maps and promotional material for Ponycon events.
Successfully held an exciting weekend-long event (and will likely hold many more) alongside her friends.
Mastered her magical & reality warping abilities on her own, and even held a panel at Ponycon discussing the "Physics of Chaos."
Has met and stood alongside the likes of Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Spike the Dragon, Dragon Lord Ember, Maud Pie, and Changeling Leader Thorax, among many others.
The comic she was featured in, Ponycon: New Beginnings, had sold out of copies at the real-life convention in a single weekend, and for a short time, in Ponycon's online store.
Her popularity among fans has earned herself a purchasable plushie in the same year as her debut, a first in Ponycon history.
Form is the winner of a fan poll conducted to determine what Mirage would wear to celebrate Halloween/Nightmare Nights
Won over other potential options Q (Star Trek), Bob Ross, Rick (Rick & Morty), Han Solo (Star Wars), Medusa (Greek Mythology) and Roulette (DC Comics)
A full on human appearance of Mirage ala Equestria Girls
Most likely retains her abilities (where applicable) in this form
Could be used to effectively disguise herself as a cosplayer or blend in with a crowd
Demon Hunter form
Takes the appearance of a demon hunter from World of Warcraft
Wields bladed weapons from said class
Worn in commemoration of World of Warcraft's Legion expansion
Pokémon Trainer form
Wields a Pokéball (which may or may not contain an unknown Pokémon within) while taking the appearance of a trainer
Appearance likely means Mirage possesses extensive knowledge of the Pokémon universe/franchise
Is a member of Team Valor
Likely utilizes and relies on her partners' true strength in battle
Is more of a trickster than a fighter
Little to no actual combat experience
Invisibility was ineffective against Bowtie, meaning the ability likely has no effect on those who are destined to hold a close, emotional connection to her
Can occasionally be overconfident and cocky
Is emotionally fragile when a plan fails or when insulted, most notably being referred to as a "monster"
Is not appeased when events do not go as planned, becoming somewhat confused or frustrated as to why her plans didn't work
Has since eradicated these issues
Mirage: "Look, you... weren't wrong, Bowtie. I did act like a... a monster. But- I don't want to be one. Not anymore. I thought no one would ever want to be friends with me. So when you called me your friend- that was the best feeling in the world. You are different from those other ponies, Bowtie. Even after everything I did to you... you still gave me a chance. I'm sorry for ruining the convention. But if it's not too late... I want to prove that you can trust me."
Tiebreaker: "We don't get to choose who we look like, Mira. But we do get to choose who we are."
Before anything, go check out this awesome Bowser Jr bio made by the awesome ! This is technically a collaboration between us both, as I helped contribute a good portion of information from my prior prelude with the little guy. Big thanks to him for making it, using the info I had, and finally giving Junior the bio he's deserved for quite some time. ^_^
Moving on! It's finally that time. Timmy vs Twilight, research-wise, is nearing completion. (Or at least as complete as I could make it.) Had to look through a lot of material (the shows, films, books, comics, games, tie-in material, etc). Surprisingly, these characters have a lot to offer in the context of a vs match, and there's a lot of stuff I won't even be able to mention, mostly because they either wouldn't really fit into a Death Battle, no longer have it, etc. Besides obviously trying to figure out how I want to go about creating this fight and managing other obligations both online and personally, it stands to reason why this took over five years.
(Huge shout out to abracatastophes for allowing me to use the art! Be sure to check out his awesome (& adorable) work in the link above! Also check out NineDoodles' work above, who's doing commissions!)
For those unaware, I mentioned last month that because of how long both bios ended up becoming, I had to split them off into two separate bios. With that said, should all go according to plan and I don't feel the need to add anything more to it, Timmy's portion of the prelude will be releasing first this coming Friday, October 27th.
I would release both Timmy and Twilight at the same time, but I'm doing this way for two reasons:
So that there is an adequate amount of spacing in-between releases, giving each character their own day to shine. I wouldn't want one or the other to be overshadowed or have barren comment sections while the other attains more because of the reader reading them back-to-back. At least not upon release.
The season 7 finale for My Little Pony has yet to air on American television as of this journal, and I wouldn't want to release Twilight's bio one day before it does since it will reference the events of this finale. I'm aware that these episodes have been leaked and can be publicly viewed anytime online, but I would rather stick to supporting the official airing. That said, I have not yet seen these episodes, and will wait until I do to completely finish Twilight's portion. But for the most part, it is pretty much finished minus a few necessary touch-ups. (Also yes I have seen the Movie in theaters, and accounted for events from that too.)
As for when Twilight's portion will be out, I'm gonna make an educated guess and say sometime between Saturday, October 28th and Friday, November 4th. Depends on when I can get it done and if enough time has passed since Timmy's came out. After that, my focus will be on the fight itself, and I got a lot of ideas planned for that. It may or may not also involve some collaborations if I'm able to make it happen.
One last thing, check this out:
The Gauntlet now has an official opening video! It's gained the approval of a couple friends of mine and I think that it came out great! Check it out when possible!
That's pretty much it for now! Thanks guys! Hope you enjoy the upcoming prelude!

Hey guys, just wanted to post an update relating to Timmy vs Twilight! The prelude isn't done as of right now (it's pretty large, and I can only consider Timmy's section complete, provided nothing else comes up).
However, to tide you guys over, I'm gonna take a note from ScrewAttack and put out some "previews" for the prelude. They obviously won't be the complete versions of them because I want you guys to be able to read the full versions, but they should tide you over until then.
Gonna be posting Timmy's preview very soon, so I hope you guys look forward to that. I've been excited to share his side of things for the longest time. (You guys will get to see Twilight's side of things later.)
