Like his female counterpart, he has a powerful thirst for knowledge and is shown to be very intuitive and a quick thinker. When he gets to know his filly self better, he comes to think of her as the sister he never had, and vice versa. (It should be noted that On a Cross and Arrow was written before the premiere of A Canterlot Wedding and the introduction of Shining Armor.) It's suggested that Dusk has a crush on Applejack's older sister Red Gala and is equally intrigued by the thought of a female Prince Solaris. Comes from the Fictional story: "On a Cross and Arrow."
