background: wanderlust is – despite her many stories of her past – quite mysterious. she speaks with a thick london accent, and she claims to have lived in southern london in her early years. she ran away at a very early age and so she learned how to take care of herself. she has never had a real job, nor has she ever had a permanent place to lay her head. wonder is very intelligent, despite the fact that she dropped out of school at a ~very~ early age. she has an amazing sense of direction and she very rarely gets lost. during her life she has been in many places, and she is almost always on the move. because of this, she has many friends, but not a lot of close friends. she has also had a lot of boyfriends and a couple of girlfriends, but none of her former relationships were strong enough to handle the distance and lack of stability.
personality: wanderlust is a very charismatic and energetic molly. she is very easy-going and appears to be generally happy, although she gets lonely at times. when she feels down, she either hides it behind a very convincing fake smile, or lets it all out where no one else can see. she is very bold and independent, and incredibly brave. it might be that she just likes taking risks, or perhaps she doesn’t think about the consequences of her actions. however, she is very impulsive and not afraid to accept a new challenge. she would definitely kick your ass in a game of chicken.
magic: being a strong believer in karma, fate & the supernatural she often uses her magic to support her beliefs. she likes to pretend she is the queen of karma by rewarding those who've made good deeds, and punishing those who have done the opposite. though she never does anything extreme & dangerous. other than that she normally uses her magic for other causes, like finding out which direction to go in & find shelter before storms. it also helps her find edibles in the wild. wanderlust always knows which way is north, and she is always aware of what time it is & she can predict the weather, but only about 5 hours ahead.
relationships: jailbird is probably the pony closest to her heart. they are childhood friends, and they used to go backpacking together through their early years. when they first started out, they used to get lost quite a bit, and they got in a lot of trouble, but they didn’t really mind, as long as they did it together. they met when wonder was 6 years old and jail was 10; and they decided to run away on an adventure. ever since that first night away from home, they knew it was their destiny to explore the world together, although that dream was shattered when jailbird (unfortunately) proved to live up to his name, and was thrown in jail for burglary and theft.
erin go bragh is also very close to wonder’s heart, but seeing as erin is 10 years older than her, he’s always been kind of a big brother to her. they met in downtown manechester a couple of weeks after jail had been but behind bars, and wander wasn’t doing very well on her own. erin looked after her and they grew very close. they are still very good friends.
humbug was never good for wander. he's reckless, rude and a straight-up douchebag. he lies and decieves, but somehow she still fell for him. she fell for him in that kind of way where the feelings never truly disappear, and she is very vulnerable around him. if he wanted her back, he could get her in a heartbeat.
ladybird is one of the rather few female friends that wander has, and definitely one of the closest. being humbug's younger sister, they both know him very well, and that's how they bonded.
sorrel sky is erin go bragh's special somepony. wander is jealous of her, seeing as she's always had some sort of feelings for him, though she knows that sorrel is pure and kind, and definitely good enough for him. she loves sorrel as her own sister, and supports their relationship completely.
pushing daisies was there for wanderlust when nopony else was. she let her into her cabin during a hurricane and allowed her to stay for as long as needed. seeing as there was no chance (or reason) for them to leave the cabin, they got to know eachother very well, very quickly. daisy is one of the very few who's witnessed wander at her lowest points, and it just brought them closer.
molotov cocktail has the same burning passion for karma and justice as wander does. they have a lot of things in common and their friendship really just makes a lot of sense. they like to spend time together taking part in demonstrations or more harmless stuff like pranks and minor vandalism.
words and actions: this young molly rarely shuts her mouth, and she has a tendency to exaggerate when she's telling stories, she claims that exaggerating “just a tiny bit” adds excitement and suspense.. it is obvious when she cares about someone, because she will mention them constantly. a couple of examples of this would be how she mentions her best friend jailbird at least ten times a day. her stories often start with “one time my friend jail and i…” or “this one time when my friend jail…” or “as my best friend jail always says…”.
she is very protective when it comes to those she care about, and she doesn’t handle criticism very well. the same goes for losing bets, contests and arguments. she is a very bad loser, and she will usually get pissed and blame her loss on completely irrelevant things such as saying “the sun got in my eyes” when losing an argument about whether zebras are black with white stripes or white with black stripes.
