Immensely old and with magical powers only matched by her libido, Joyride is a force to be reckoned with. She doesn't open up about her past leaving most of it a mystery. Her mantle allows her to magically store items, and she also possesses a spell that allows her to access alternate universes.

Her exact age is never given, but she is old enough to have seen civilisations and races come and go.[2] Her special talent is travel magic, which broadly means any spells to teleport or move quickly, as well as spells that effect vehicles and objects of transportation.[2]

She lives at 304 Coursewalk in Whitherwater, but is also a traveler and tends to set up camp wherever she is at the time. She originally lived in Hucklehoof and has since had homes in many other places such as Pololimpopo.

Skills and talents

Joyride's abilities are absurdly vast. Magically her prowess is up there with the best of them, and she's studied in many fields of magic including necromancy. She's also studied magic based martial arts, which she gave up on after finding that she was just as effective when only using magic. She also knows how to create contracts with demons, though she sees them as a cheap tactic in getting more power and avoids them.

She has a unique spell that allows her to travel to other dimensions. She uses some of her keys as bookmarks for locations she wants to return to. Enchanting them so that they can also be used to escape a dimension incase it's one that prevents casting normally. When in another dimension, she'll appear in the world relative to where she was in the world she's already in. She can also bring objects and people with her on her trips. Many dimensions will change people that enter them to match their counterpart selves, and it is for this reason that taking things back and forth, especially animals, can sometimes have bizarre results.

Joyride has a special immortality that prevents her from aging, makes her incredibly resilient to harm and nearly indefatigable. It also removed the color in her eyes, and has made her infertile. Another benefit is a strong resistance to poisons[7] which might be why Joy needs very strong alcohol for it to effect her.

Life story

Joyride was an only child, and doesn't have much memory of her father. He and Joy's uncles and aunts ended up dying whilst fighting in a war, preventing her from getting to know her family beyond her mother.[6]
When Joyride was a filly, she lived with her mother and worked as a postmare. It is whilst she is deliverying the mail that she teleports to win a race against Scout, and discovers her cutie-mark.[citation needed]
Shortly after she ended up having an adventure, nearly getting eaten by a Quarry Eel, then getting lost.[5] She came back home safely, and ended up in a relationship with Scout. Though this didn't last long as her wonderlust for travel did not fit Scout's wants.[citation needed]
Just as her cutie-mark would suggest, she went on to do a lot of traveling, starting off small. She lived inland most of her life, going to a port for the first time as a young adult.[3]
Her mother died at some point, and now Joyride goes to visit her grave every so often.
Joyride was once an apprentice to a necromancer.

Role in the story

She took in Emerald after he escaped his parents, and is currently instructing him in the ways of magic and alchemy. She is also the source of Emerald's current mid-term goal, which involves collecting ingredients for a potion to help her achieve orgasm after her long life of debauchery left her desensitized.
