"Things shall be different.. No more Celestia.. And no, more, you" - Ditto to TwilightDitto is the redeemed main villain from "the story of Ditto". He is a old alicorn, who many years ago (same year Luna became nightmare moon) was Celestia's most trusted student, same role Twilight 'currently' has. It's considered that Celestia cared deeply for him, as she was clearly saddened when he ran away after he blaimed Celestia for the death of his family, and she never got the chance to try talking about it, as she was too busy stopping nightmare moon.
Years later, Ditto runs into Queen Chrysalis after her defeat in Canterlot Wedding. The Queen, after hearing how lonely he is, offers him to join her minions, and begins uncharacteristically treating him as a close friend. And even makes him her lead commander.
More years later (Twilight is now a princess). Ditto, under the belief that Celestia betrayed him, helps Chrysalis in the kidnapping of various ponies, including a loyal guard named Ganger, so the kidnapped victims can become Changelings against their will. Eventually they also capture Twilight, but this leads to Chrysalis having no choice but to fire him. As he ends up taking it too far..
A few months later he takes revenge on the main six when he kidnaps Scootaloo, AppleBloom, Sweetie Belle and Spike joining a camping trip (joining witch Scootaloo ends up becoming sympathetic after hearing about the loss of his family, and feeling she could relate, as her mother is never around anymore). But Ditto's plans get foiled and he ends up in a fist fight against the enraged Rainbow Dash. He wins but gets captured by the others.
While trying to figure out what to do with him, the girls take him to Canterlot. Where he is reconsized by Celestia. Who is heartbrokenl about what he has become.
Celestia believes Ditto can still be changed for the better. And he is taken to Ponyville to be reformed.
He dose, but mostly do to the support of Scootaloo, who he develops an brother/sister relationship with..
But eventually, Scootaloo's relationship with him becomes discovered by some fired Changelings wanting revenge on Ditto. And after an intense fight with Rainbow Dash and Spike (both protecting Scootaloo with their lives), Scootaloo ends kidnapped by, the now villainous, Ganger. Witch angers and horrifies Rainbow Dash, leaving her stressed out and probably heartbroken.
Fortunately, Ditto ends up saving Scootaloo in the end, and in doing so, Dash. Who never forgave him for the scen in the forest. Finally trusts him and would call him a friend..
Ditto is a fairly complex character.
He is shown to have a darker side, in witch he brings out an sadistic sense of humor, as he mocks Twilight's fear and uncomfort of being stuck in a cocoon inside a disturbing room. Along with anxiously asking Chrysalis if he could physically harm Pinkie or the others, along with laughing over Pinkie's begs for them to not turn her into a changeling, although Pinkie has a strange response towards Ditto's comments.
After redeeming. Celestia personally put him as the chief of police, cause being with Chrysalis and the changeling, made him know how to be a leader. And it's clear she made the right choice. It's the perfect job for someone like him.
However, even when redeemed, Ditto still has a very dark sense of humor. Kinda like Trevor Phillips. But Ditto is obviously not "insane".. So.. More like Johnny Klebitz.
But in the end, Ditto was never TRULY evil. But more of a victim of circumstance, and is still capable doing the right thing..
It's revealed he is actually suffering from a deep depression for the last few centuries (he's an ailcorn). And although he was mad at Scootaloo the first time she showed him it, it's provided that he just wants to feel loved again. And he is currently dating Princess Luna, cause she of all people understands what it's like trying to fit in when most of Equestria still doesn't trust him.
Ditto shares much of Saten's temper, though Ditto is much more intimating than Saten, as Ditto is older, stronger, and due to his age, he "knows things"..
It Is often provided that Ditto is probably near his hundreds since he orginally ran away the year Luna became Nightmare moon (decades ago).. But due to being an alicorn he still looks fairly young, and sometimes acts younger he possibly is also.. Due to how old he is, he is capable of advanced alicorn prowers. Along with all the changeling powers he learned from being taken under Chrysalis's wing.. It is unknown if he has an alicorn, but it's probably figured that he dosen't. He is described as being as tall Luna, but not near as tall as Celestia.. He has a pitch black coat, witch made Chrysalis mistake him for a changeling at first meeting him. His eyes are similar to Chrysalis, not the eye design, the eye design is the same as all ponies, but similar shade of green, thiugh his might be an even "darker" shade of green, but it still glows in the dark witch he often uses in an suitable scare tactic..
Relationship with Characters:
CELESTIA: Due to having had the same relationship she currently dose with Twilight, it's no surprise why she was so heartbroken by his betrayel. But it's clear she was never gonna give up on him, and she was quick to try bringing the goodness back into him.. It's unclear if Ditto has ever TRUELY forgiven her, but he understands that she only wants to be his friend again. And they seem to have a close relationship..
TWILIGHT: When he first meets her, there are many times he calls her "hot", but since this is never brought up joining his stay at Ponyville, in witch they are never seen interacting, it's provided he was mocking her.
LUNA: Ditto reveals to have a crush on Luna. It's weird how he only started taking an interest in her very RECENTLY. Considering they have so much in common, especially when it comes to trying to fit in to the new world after being away so many years. But at the same time, Celestia said Ditto never officially met Luna till now. Either way. Most times he tried asking her out, she gently refuses. But I guess he finally got to her, as it's mentioned that she finally said yes. Though the relationship is a bit troubled, due to Ditto's temper issues.
DISCORD: Only interact once so far, joining witch they mock each other childishly.
CHRYSALIS: His relationship with her, is possibly how it was with Celestia, before he felt betrayed. Either way, Ditto was said to be the only one she ever cared for, and acted somewhat motherly towards him..
SCOOTALOO: Is not only the first to relate to him, and try reasoning with him. But was the only one of Ponyville to ever TRULY believe he could redeem (similar to Fluttershy with Discord).. And Ditto in return cares deeply for her, treating her as if she was his little sister.
RAINBOW DASH: He and Dash had a very rocky relationship. If it weren't for Scootaloo, she would of done who knows what to him. But after he saves Scootaloo's life, she finally trusts him, and treats him like a close friend..
SATEN TWIST: They get along pretty well..
