History: When Sunlight was born in Cloudsdale, she could see as well as the average pony. During her first eclipse, at the age of 2, she was blinded for not wearing the proper protection. She learned to cope with her new disability, when she was around the age of 8. She was always treated in a different way, as ponies kept trying to help her when she didn't need it, which aggravated her. She then started to stay away from other ponies, except her little sister, Absentina.
Absentina helped her find new ways of studying her favorite subject, Astronomy. Her main focus was eclipses, as she started to wonder why they were so beautiful, yet as dangerous as the Everfree Forest. During her 13th year of life, she "witnessed" another eclipse. She had heard about it from Absentina, and was instantly more wishful to gather info on it. She had her younger sister help record what happened regarding the visuals during the Lunar Eclipse. She recorded what the eclipse did to the wild life, hearing many animals with different reactions.
It was rare for a pony to get their Cutie Mark so late in life, but during that eclipse, she gained an eclipsing Cutie Mark.
Up until recently(really recent), she worked at the Weather Factory in Cloudsdale, on the night shift. She decided to move to Ponyville to become a Teacher at a small school. She teaches science.
Example RP segment(2. A secret admirer confesses his/her love to Sunrise.):
As she trotted around Canterlot early the spring, a purple gray stallion trotted up to her. She was told by his fast-paced hoof prattle, that she should start flying, which she promptly does. The colt runs into a tree, which Sunrise winced at the thud. That's gotta hurt...
she thought. "Morning, Purple."
she said calmly. "Morning, Sun. Nice timin'"
the colt said. He got up, noise not leaving him be. "I've been meaning to ask ya something, Sun."
Purple told her, as she landed."Yes, Purpler Punk?"
she said."Could you do me the liberty of... Being my girl?"
he shyly asked the blind mare."Is this because of my eyesight?""No.""Hm... I'll have ta think... But there is a solid chance at a yes."
she lied. She was waiting for the colt, and he wasn't it. She flew back to the cloud city, leaving the rocker alone.
