Zecora was a zebra herbalist who lived in Everfree Forest.
Before the WarEdit
Before the war, Zecora was a Zebra Herbalist that lived inside a hut in the Everfree Forest. She was a friend to the six ministry mares before the war. She would provide natural remedies and potions to the nearby town of Ponyville for many years.
During the WarEdit
During the war, she worked as a trainer in the Ministry of Awesome. As the end of the war neared, she was accused of treachery and 'saved' by zebra forces, among whom she worked as a double agent. She had been prepared for her work as a double-agent by Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie.
Whilst Zecora was performing her duties as a double-agent she accidentally killed a Guardpony who had escorted her up to a room of classified data. Zecora was to take this data to the Zebras as part of her cover and the next phase in her double-agent mission to gain the trust of the Zebra Caesar. Unfortunately Applesnack/Steelhooves arrived on scene and was driven into a murderous rage seeing Zecora who he believed was a traitor. His anger stemmed from Applejack who felt betrayed by Zecora (she was unaware of Zecora acting as a double-agent). Zecora surrendered immediately but he attacked her viciously anyway. Breaking through her half-hearted defenses, SteelHooves killed her brutally. Applejack walked in on the scene which evidently led to SteelHooves and Applejack's strained and distant relationship afterwards.
After the WarEdit
Steelhooves would learn 200 years later that Zecora hadn't been a traitor. Littlepip witnessed the events that transpired via Memory orbs. He was unwilling to believe Littlepip's words initially, due to his immense guilt and regret if he had indeed wronged Zecora and led to Applejack and him separating.
Prior to the war, Zecora was an excellent medicine maker and herbalist. She was easily capable of brewing powerful healing tonics and potions. She was also slightly skilled in hoof to hoof combat.
