Fluttershy is a pegasus pony with a light yellow body, blue eyes and a pink mane and tail, and she usually speaks in a high-pitched, soft, gentle, timid, squeaky voice. She has a similar appearance and nature to Posey, an earth pony from the 1980s' show, and Sky Skimmer, a Generation 2 Pony, and is named after an earth pony in the G3 line. She is sweet and calm, but is timid and often very shy around others, though she can become forceful and assertive when pushed too far. Fluttershy has a great love and care for animals and is willing to help them at any cost, but is shown to be very fearful of dragons. Although she is a pegasus, she prefers to stay close to the ground, living in a cottage near the forest instead of the sky city of Cloudsdale with the other pegasi. She possesses a special ability known as "The Stare", which allows her to intimidate even the fiercest animals. In 'Suited for Success', Fluttershy was shown to have good knowledge of sewing and fashion just like Rarity. According to "The Cutie Mark Chronicles", she has been saved by a group of colorful butterflies allowing her to fly for the first time. Rainbow Dash's Sonic Rainboom scares the animals Fluttershy has befriended and causes her to earn her cutie mark. She represents the Element of Kindness. She has a pet rabbit named Angel.
