Princess Cadence is a winged unicorn and a niece of Princess Celestia. Her full name is Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, though she prefers to be called Cadence. Cadence was Twilight's foal sitter when they were both young. As of A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2, she is married to Shining Armor. She makes a cameo appearance in Shining Armor's ending along with Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, Spike (Cathy Weseluck), her sister-in-law Twilight Sparkle, her mother-in-law Mrs. Sparkle and her father-in-law Mr. Sparkle. She was named after Cadence the Penguin from Club Penguin series.
Cadence is a Winged Unicorn with a pink coat. Her mane is striped cream, dark pink, and purple. She wears a crown that somewhat resembles to Fleur de Lis (Nicole Oliver) with a purple jewel adorning the tip of the central spike, as well as a somewhat more generic golden necklace. Her wings are unique in that they grade into purple, rather than remaining one solid color.
Cadence is a kind pony and is shown to get along well with all types of others. She tends to leave a good impression on whomever she meets. Cadence has a talent in spreading love, and this is likely her special talent.
