Tiny adorable creatures that use their cute looks to infiltrate groups of friends and tear them apart. The feed on hate and frustration, and are willing to gossip, lie, and back stab anyone to get their fill. Vain and gluttonous creatures, they will feign innocence and avoid direct conflict at all cost. In dire times it has been noted that they will consume flesh and muscle of a large variety of creatures, if they are unable to turn creatures against each other.
While they grow no larger than a filly, they weigh as much as an adult pony; coupled with small, cherub wings and skinny legs, Cherubpeas rely on their host for many of their basic needs. Their wings and horns have been evolved to be both cute, with their small size, and colored differently than normal ponies, with the gradient colors. This is to stand out from ponies and make them look more important and special. Large dilated eyes allow them the ability to see better in the dark, but leaves them almost blinded in bright areas, as they cannot contract their pupils. When they are confronted directly, they will release a sharp piercing scream that will momentarily stun most creatures. They rarely open their mouths but have been seen with shark like teeth, rows of razor sharp and terrifying teeth. It would seem that they are the Cherubpeas' last line of defense.
Territorial disputes have been recorded between them and the insect like Changelings, and have been known to fight over bountiful food prospects. Unfortunately, unlike the Changelings, Cherubpeas are solitary creatures and more often than not are run out of territories, vastly outnumbered. Cherubpeas have been known to retake land after enslaving creatures with their charm and using them to defeat the Changelings.
While all Cherubpeas appear to be female, it has been noted that there are as many males as females. It is hard to differentiate between the two sexes because both sexes share the exact same build. Males sport warm colors, such as pinks and oranges; while females sport cooler colors, such as blues and purples. During mating season Females will emit a giggling sound, that seems to come from their wings rather than their vocal chords, to let males know she is ready. When a potential mate arrives the female takes an aggressive stance, hissing and spitting at the male, unusual as they normally avoid direct conflict. The male then takes its' time staring down the female and slowly walking in indirect patterns. If the female is not impressed by the male by the time he reaches her, she will let out her stunning wail and flee the area.
Cutie Marks are immitated from ponies, but hold not special meaning; they all have to do with cute, rounded, shapes.
