Countess Rose, grew up and lives in a small village near Neighagra Falls. She is 1/4 Changeling, and can only shift between her natural changeling form and an earth pony version of herself. Her grandmother, Dutchess Rose was a changeling who left her hive to find a better life for herself, ending up in that small village. She fell in love with an Earth Pony Stallion, and he gave her a fire ruby necklace which has been handed down to Countess.
Her family's changeling heritage is know to the other villagers but she chooses to stick to her earth pony form when in public to avoid trouble with travelers, due to events at a certain wedding. She runs "The Book Nook" a small book store a few streets from the village square.
