This is Kimono. She is better than you. She's beautiful, intelligent and cultured. A career student in Asian Studies, she maintains a perfect GPA at Ponyville University.
Kimono thinks the main problem with Ponyville is that it's full of ponies. This is why she jumped at the chance to live in a gorgeous, three-story townhouse in the suburbs.
This is Minty. What she lacks in wit she makes up for with enthusiasm. Although she's not particularly bright, Minty is a caring pony and a loyal friend. She also collects socks.
Minty shares Kimono's townhouse, much to Kimono's chagrin.
