Zecora is a female zebra who is a herbalist who resides in a hut in the Everfree Forest and whose first appearance is in the episode Bridle Gossip. Initially believed to be an evil sorceress (or enchantress) by the terrified populace of Ponyville, she later befriends the ponies and frequently helps them out with her knowledge of magical ailments. She is one of the recurring characters in The FT Squad's Adventures in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Originally the Ponyville locals thought that Zecora was an evil enchantress, due to being different and mysterious. But Twilight Sparkle, being new to Ponyville at the time, and Applebloom, who was wanting to get to know Zecora better, didn't believe that was the case. Eventually everyone discovered that Zecora wasn't evil and was actually a nice fellow.
