I just realized that, at first glance, G5’s names may follow G4’s ‘fateful/fitting’ theme.
is the cute, girly one, Zipp Storm
looks like the tomboy you’d expect from Rainbow Dash and Lightning Dust having a kid together, Sunny Starscout
seems intent on chasing stars if she’s indeed the one who starts this ‘race reconciliation’ journey…
If that holds up, I expect Izzy Moonbow to shoot straight for the moon, which fits the synopsis of her being the one to wander into Sunny’s town (maybe because she shares her lofty ideal), while Hitch Trailblazer… will escape his enemies by falling through a fish tank or something, I guess.
It’s also interesting that Sunny and Pipp have names that aren’t in tune with their tribe’s usual theme in G4. Maybe the possible second unicorn will have a name related to weather, to go with Starscout following the unicorns’ taste for the firmament and Petals matching earth ponies and their bond with all things green.
There are still alicorns, remember?
I can see one of the tribes deciding one day to (try to) hunt them to extinction, in the name of “self-determination,” because they got sick of glorified mutants telling them what to do, think and believe for over one thousand years and wanted to take their fate in their own hooves for once.
Which may cause the whole racial tensions in the first place. But maybe that’s too reminding of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Make that tribe the pegasi, incidentally, and it’s “I can easily see it” instead.
