Hey there HeroVerse fans!
Todays release is quite long biography wise, so well be giving the main link to our wikipedia page for her.
A few notes about her, we wanted her to feel like Rarity had a regal almost princess like feel due to her position as the Jacob Marlowe archetype of our group. MOON did a heck of a job maturing miss Belle out that’s for sure.
Rarity has one of the more deeper problem sets of the group, so she required a bit of a delicate hand in today’s day and age of trigger words and images. We opted to keep it lighter then to delve into the main issues as her PTSD, Survivors guilt, alcoholism and bipolar disorder. No doubt all of these are attributed to surviving the Canterlot Disaster, watching her sister die and in the end having to hide her vices.
I took a great deal of research into making sure I didnt make light of any of these issues but also wanted to show she was still very much a lady, very much a powerful woman, but also a very approachable person still. We didn’t want to make her Lex Luthor after all. (That archetype belongs to someone else 😉 )
And here’s moons reference sheet!
