Despite her vain an melodramatic tendencies, she has a generous spirit an strives tae create dresses that capture their wearers' inner beauty.[2][3] She is Sweetie Belle's older sister an dreams o becomin a designer for Princess Celestia. She an aa once hoped tae marry Celestia's nephew Prince Blueblood, until she actually met him, where he turned out to be snobbish, rude, an self-centered. Rarity's magic has been demonstrated tae involve both telekinesis an findin nearby jewels buried underground. She ains a pet persian cat namit Opalescence, commonly nicknamed Opal. Faust's oreeginal idea for Rarity's Element of Harmony was "inspiration", but it wis changed tae "generosity" efter the production team deemed the former "too much of a thinker, especially for kids." Faust wis pleased wi the change, sayin it "really helped pull [Rarity] away from the stereotypical, unlikable debutante." She cites Audrey Hepburn as her biggest influence for Rarity,[4] an an aa says that Tabitha St. Germain's performance "added a humor to Rarity that was unexpected and wonderful."
