Character study of Dimentia from Legendbringer's Fall of Starfleet: Rise of Harmony
Spearhead of Titan's forces and thorn in Starfleet's side.
Dimentia, while fighting under the banner of a fiend whose depravity knows no bound or equal, is not without morals herself.
While taking city after city, one thing remains consistent with her.
She never harms children. She even goes so far as to allow them and their guardians to escape without bloodshed.
It is this that cause the populace of United Equestria to question whether she, or anyone for that matter, are always truly as 'irredeemably evil' as Grand Ruler professes about any foe.
Dimentia and her cohorts kick off their return with a vengeance.
Fighting with skill and zeal never before seen, Starfleet prove little match, their usual mode of fighting made obsolete as Titan's Trio utilise cunning, foresight and momentum, capitalising not on strength but strategy.
That being said, Dimentia is particularly fearsome, bringing down Lightning Dawn, Artie Bristles and Rhymey Ward with speed and pleasure, Rhymey in particular getting the brunt of the force.
When Starla Shine is captured by Conquest and made a tool upon which to slake his depravity, Dimentia has little sympathy for one who caused her so much agony in the past...at first.
Slowly, the mares begin a rapport with each other. Dimentia does not approve of Conquest's past-times, even upon a Starfleet pony, and begins comforting her in these dark times.
After a time, she offers to train her, making her stronger not only in body but in mind and soul.
Until finally, Starla makes her escape.
Through some mishap, she and Dimentia are separated and the two struggle long and hard to reunite.
When their memories are fully restored, Titan's trio remember their past lives and how they were taken.
For Dimentia, a shocking discovery greets her as she remembers the mare she used to be.
Galaxia Shine, Starla's mother.
This knowledge makes their reunion all the more powerful as the two vent the loss of so many years upon each other, finally together again after everything.
Happy endings are not found, bought or inherited.
They are earned.
Galaxia Shine was one of the celebrated astronomers in Unicornicopia, a Starfleet commander and a beloved mother.
For some unknown reason or purpose, Grand Ruler grew tired of her and had her and her husband murdered, Starla taken to be brainwashed and fill the position of her late mother.
But as she lay dying, Galaxia swore she would let nothing stop her from protecting her daughter from Grand Ruler's tyranny.
Not even death.
With Twilight Sparkle returned and Conquest granting Equestria a few days of peace, Dimentia and Starla Shine catch up on old times.
At a beach party, Dimentia wears something slightly more-risqué than her daughter would prefer.
Flushed with embarrassment, Starla tries in vain to keep her mother decent but Dimentia is adamant. By all rights, since Equestria prefer the lives of equine form anyway, nopony should be wearing anything.
Between laughing and cringing, the two mares have fun with family and friends.
The newly-single Lighting Dawn, however, has...mixed-feelings.
You ask why the katana?
I say why NOT the katana? Katanas are awesome!
And yes, that is meant to be Blossomforth protecting the foals. She's an interesting background character and I like giving those kinds of characters attention.
It's what got me into MLP in the first place.
So yeah, this kind of what I may be indulging in for a while.
Badass-events, tragic events, moving events and sexy events.
Hey, anthro gives me a chance to work on proportions...however ludicrous they may be.
