Artist’s description from DA:
concept art, celestia and luna pre-alicornificationCelestia was a pupil of Starswirl the Bearded (don’t judge young Tia, beards were very hip for unicorns back then), and Luna was a troubled pegasus with the mysterious power of dreamwalking. Considering them not actually being blood sisters, but rather taking a vow of eternal sisterhood after going on an impromptu journey together to save Equestria and restore the balance of the sun and moon.
-Both are orphans. "Celestia" and "Luna" are not their birth names, but rather ones they chose for themselves after ascending
Luna is rumored to sing the best lullabies in the world. This is how she and Celestia meetCelestia sought out her help after being plagued with nightmares (prophetic visions) of the sun falling out of the sky.
-Although they were born after the three pony tribes stopped warring, tensions were high between unicorns, pegasi, and earth ponies, with all three groups suspicious and reluctant to interact with each other. At the time, it was fairly scandalous for young Celestia to befriend Luna, a pegasus. Unicorns viewed pegasi as warmongering brutes, and pegasi viewed unicorns as lazy snobs, eager to exploit the labor of the "lesser" ponies.
-Neither Celestia nor Luna came from anyplace special, and no prophecy foretold their ascension to goddesses. Neither pony was out for fame or glory (okay, maybe Celestia wanted a little fame and glory, but Luna was far shyer). They only wanted the pony tribes to get along….and for Equestria to be safe.
