    Sweet Death's history

    Her mother and father met each other when Black Death, an ev<_>il green-eyed black dragon, was on his way to attack a village. Golden Love, a yellow unicorn with a blue mane/tail and a golden heart for a Cutie Mark, turned out to be one of the few people Black Death loved unconditionally. Sweet Death was thier foal, a unicorn/dragon hybrid. Black Death wanted to turn his filly ev<_>il so his ally, Princess Bloodfire, wouldn't be furious with him. However, he didn't do so because Golden Love didn't want thier daughter to be bad. This resulted in Golden Love being ki<_>lled by Bloodfire. Black Death mo<_>urned her death, and began teaching Sweet Death dark magic so she wouldn't di<_>e, either. Like his de<_>ceased spouse, he loved Sweetie. But Sweet Death ha<_>ted her father for being ev<_>il, and taught herself law in secret. Soon, she became a po<_>lice pony. However, years later, after visiting the Rainbow Factory, Sweet Death had a nightmare where, back in the Rainbow Factory, a mysterious alicorn, who was dark purple with a red, orange, and yellow mane that flowed like fire, red eyes, obsidian-encrusted chest and hooves, and wearing an obsidian crown, demanded that Sweetie must become her apprentice. She refused and was ki<_>lled in the dream, making her wake up. Later, after Sweet Death ar<_>rested a stallion for ro<_>bbery, ta<_>mpering with evidence, and attempting to escape au<_>thority, she was stabbed in the back by the mysterious alicorn. Sweetie fled and crash-landed in front the Cutie Mark Crusaders Clubhouse before falling un<_>conscious. After she was restored back to health by Ice Tears, the next day Sweet Death recieved a letter to go to alicorn res 2. There, she met Princess Diamond Love, her aunt. Diamond Love was a white alicorn with a blue mane/tail and a diamond heart for a Cutie Mark. After learning magic that wasn't dark, Sweetie was given her mother sword, Hope. She refused, stating that she fights with "claws and bu<_>llets" and not "magic and blade". The cat which accompanied her for a while said that doesn't mean she shouldn't refuse it, and her aunt agreed and reluctantly accepted the sword. At the next visit, after in<_>heriting her mother's necklace which bore a resemblance to Golden Love's Cutie Mark and being told she will in<_>herit the castle, Princess Diamond Love tells her of the premonition which she had recieved years earlier that Princess Bloodfire would try to make Sweetie her student, but will want to ki<_>ll her and Sweetie's teacher, and ki<_>ll Diamond Love but Sweetie will de<_>feat Bloodfire. Princess Bloodfire later ki<_>lled Princess Diamond Love in Ponyville while attempting to ki<_>ll Sweet Death, but Sweet Death was only in<_>jured and knocked un<_>conscious. Later, Sweetie became a dranicorn ultima by reading an ancient spell aloud. She and Ice Tears fought Princess Bloodfire and Death's Shadow and won. Later, Sweet Death was po<_>ssessed by Bloodfire's so<_>ul after using Bloodfire's sword and ignoring the signs. Bloodfire used to her to ultimately po<_>ssess the ru<_>ins of the castle. Once again, she was de<_>feated when her sword, which was her anchor, was blown up. Sweet Death eventually became Princess Twilight Sun's sister, Black Midnight's teacher, and had reconciled with her father.
