Rainbow Dash is a sky blue pegasus with a rainbow-colored mane and tail who is based on Faust's "G1" Firefly toy, and shares her name with the "G3" earth pony. She is an "act first and ask questions later" pegasus obsessed with speed and adventure. Her goal at the series' beginning is to join her heroes, the elite Wonderbolts aerobatic team. Apart from helping other pegasi manage the weather around Ponyville, she spends her time practicing flight maneuvers such as the "Sonic Rainboom", a rainbow-hued sonic boom; that Rainbow Dash's first Sonic Rainboom as a child produced not only her own cutie mark, but also the rest of the Mane Six's marks. She lives with a propeller-fitted pet tortoise named Tank in a floating condominium of clouds called the Cloudominium.
