Character: apple bloom
Apple Bloom is the youngest scion of the
Clampet Apple family. Born a poor dirt farmer, her parents died before she could really know them leaving her to be raised by her insanely overbearing sister and their senile grandmother. She is also a frequent target of verbal abuse at her school. Of course, none of that seems to bother her a lick.
No, what really puts a knot in her bow is the fact that her cute yellow filly backside has not manifested a magical tattoo on itself yet. Apple Bloom's pre-teen angst drives her to insane lengths in her quest to earn her ass mark. She will do anything ranging from unsupervised extreme sports to drinking chemicals she finds under Zecora's sink.
The all-consuming nature of Apple Bloom's passion for getting a painted posterior has led her to abandon her oldest friend, Twist, and instead throw in with Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo who suffer from a similar preocupation. The three of them meet in a tree house on Apple Bloom's farm as "The Cutie Mark Crusaders." Apple Bloom may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but she is the brains of the Crusaders. As such, she often seems to be the ringleader of the group.
When she is not performing stupid stunts, Apple Bloom spends her free time working as Zecora's potion-making assistant and doing simple farm chores. She regularly visits Twilight Sparkle to study plant growing techniques. She also maintains a long-distance friendship with her cousin, Babs Seed.
Apple Bloom has a typical filly body with a mop of red hair. She usually wears a strangely large red bow on her head. Her eyes are orange, complimenting her yellow coat and red hair. She speaks with a faux-Texan drawl like the rest of her family.
Apple Bloom is voiced by
loli TOO OLD DO NOT WANT voice actress Michelle Creber. Creber also does Apple Bloom's singing voice using the Apple drawl.
