King Sombra, an antagonist the likes of which has never before been seen. Sombra was introduced in the finale of the first season of Wrath of The Ponies, after 26 episodes of build-up, mentioned initially in passing in the very first episode of the show.
He came to prominence as a villain and overall character midway through season 2 when it was revealed that he not only had a hoof in the happenings that led to not only the violent insurrection against the Duke of Maresborough Shire, but the events that led directly to the death of Rarity’s parents. The inciding incident that led to Rarity seeking power, leading her down the dark road that takes up a majority of the show’s runtime.
Other than being the sole arbiter of The Crystal of Unlife, he is widely considered to be a spirit of darkness. An unholy being, created from the corpse of the Nightmare. Throughout the run of both Wrath of The Ponies and Ponies, Who Need’s ’Em? King Sombra fights for control over the nation of Equestria against the forces of Celestia Sol, The Arbiter of Fire, Lord of The Burning Light, with frequent border skirmishes across several regions.
