Scootaloo as a young mare.
|Faction/Role||Stable-Tec Corporation, Vice President|
|“||Told them I was proud of what Rainbow Dash did. Called myself a Dash-ite. Boy, that got their feathers in a bunch.||”|
Little is known about Scootaloo's adolescence.
As a mare, she went on to found Red Racer, a corporation centered around the production of scooters, children's wagons, and other similar toys. It was rumored that Red Racer was a front for various black ops projects.
During the WarEdit
Throughout the course of the war, she would become a founding member of Stable-Tec Corporation, along with Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom. She began to grow a certain distaste for the Stable experiments during this time. While all three had some regrets and sorrow over starting these experiments, it seems to come in most strongly from Scootaloo.
The first pegasus to follow in Rainbow Dash's hoofsteps by abandoning the isolationist post-event pegasus community was Scootaloo. At the time of the Megaspell detonation, Scootaloo was being treated for a broken wing at the Hanovaerian pegasus clinic, an injury she had received during an accident while practicing for GALLoPS.
At some point following the detonation, she had ventured below the cloud layer to check on her friends and the state of the world below. Recognizing the danger she was in by being exposed to the megaspell's radioactive snow and green air, she recorded an audio file onto her PipBuck to store in The Rock of Destiny. She described how Sweetie Belle was made Overmare of Stable 2, and though it was only a short distance from where Scootaloo was recording, it was not worth trying to get in since it would contaminate the stable.
Scootaloo recalls how the leaders of the pegasus community (what developed to be the Grand Pegasus Enclave later on) told pegasus citizens that the cloud curtain over Equestria would keep radiation and pollution from contaminating the pegasus cities above. Anyone who ventured below would be branded over their cutie mark with a scarred imitation of Rainbow Dash's cloud and lightning bolt cutie mark. As Scootaloo was exiled, she coined the moniker Dashite, saying she was proud of the similar choice Rainbow Dash made.
In the recording, Scootaloo begins to cough violently and stops talking for some time. She reveals to the listener there was a shack she had traced Rainbow Dash to, and has reason to believe that Rainbow Dash at the time was either living or had recently lived there. Scootaloo stores the location in her PipBuck, saying she would wait at the shack for Rainbow Dash in case she returns. She wanted Rainbow Dash to know that not all pegasi were isolationist, and that she was not alone.
In the conversation following Littlepip listening to the PipBuck message from Scootaloo, Calamity reveals that he had buried a pegasus skeleton at Rainbow Dash's Shack. He figured that if Rainbow Dash made it back to the shack, there would have been two. Judging by the coughing on the recording, it is more likely that Scootaloo finally died due to exposure to toxic air than from radiation exposure. At the same time, in her weakened state it's possible that Scootaloo never made it back to the Shack, and the remains instead belonged to Rainbow Dash, since her end was not completely described in the recording at Spike's Cave.
Scootaloo is an orange pegasus mare with a purple/fuchisa mane and light purple eyes. Her cutie mark is never revealed during the story.
In her youth Scootaloo has always been a rather skittish and energetic young Pegasus. She idolized Rainbow Dash, she tried to compensate her natural coyness, with acting as tomboyish and carefree as her idol.
She grows to be a self-confident mare, who is willing to protect others, with a good sense of justice and selflessness.
