(Crown Princess Nova Sparkle)
|Created by||Ash Witherspoon|
Nova Sparkle is the central main character of My Little Pony: Greatness of Ponykind. She is a teenager Alicorn, one of the few naturally-born Alicorns and the Crown Princess of Equestria. Having been born before her parents became the co-regents of Equestria, Nova is a foreign Alicorn Princess; possessing some of the strongest magical abilities in Equestria. She is also the daughter of Twilight Sparkle, the current Ruler of Equestria, and the foreign Princess, Brynhildr; she was born through magical means, as a result of their strong love and want for a child combining together to create Nova. In addition, she is the sole granddaughter of Twilight Velvet and Night Light, the niece of Shining Armor, Princess Cadance, Princess Luna, and Princess Celestia and the paternal first cousin to Flurry Heart. In addition, she is the adoptive niece of Spike; in addition Owlowiscious serves as her messenger to her former pupil, Luster Dawn who has since become the student of her mother. In addition to being the heiress to the throne of Equestria, Nova is also an avid Historian, having complied and hand-written a series of extremely popular novels detailing glimpses into the lives of ordinary ponies, as well as members of royalty. She has a love for books and knowledge, most specifically scientific experiments to improve the years a pony lives; this knowledge is such that even the most highly-trained scientist ponies are left flabbergasted.
