Sonata Dusk is a siren and one of the main villain in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks. She is a backup singer in her band the Dazzlings, rivaling the Rainbooms. Her Fire Starter counterpart is Adele Stewart who replaced Sunset Shimmer when she went to help the MCF stop the Dazzlings. Like Aria Blaze and Adagio Dazzle, she is also the evil version of Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid series.
Development and Design Edit
Like those of her bandmates Adagio Dazzle and Aria Blaze, Sonata Dusk's fin-like wings are translucent and non-feathered.
In music terms, the word "sonata" refers to a composition for an instrumental soloist, often with a piano accompaniment.
Both the original animatic of the opening credits and the doll merchandise depict Sonata wearing purple tinted sunglasses. On the doll, her blue belt also is slightly different as her belt hangs off her waist with cutie mark chains hanging off of it. Only her blue belt appears in the final film.
Depiction in Rainbow Rocks Edit
In the film, Sonata and the other Dazzlings are introduced in the human world. They are sirens from Equestria
who were banished to the human world by Star Swirl the Bearded before they could conquer Equestria with their dark magic. They first appear in a café causing tension between the patrons, and Sonata briefly argues with Aria Blaze. She and the Dazzlings later convince the students with their music to turn the friendly Musical Showcase into a Battle of the Bands.
Sonata and the Dazzlings use their siren's songs to control the students' opinion and advance through the competition bracket. In the final battle against the Rainbooms, Sonata and the Dazzlings are eventually defeated, and the gem pendants with which they controlled the students are destroyed. As a result, their inability to sing leads to them being chased off in disgrace.
Aside from flashbacks, Sonata's true form is never physically shown in the film, but she and her fellow band members gain pony-like ears, extended ponytails, and translucent fin-like wings. They also summon astral projections of their siren forms from their pendants.
