Flash is a middle-aged photographer and reporter for the Ponyville Express. He has seen his fair share of horrors and inexplicable events, and has become rather withdrawn as a result. He is always friendly and polite, if a bit stiff, but he prefers to spend his time alone, or on a midnight walk.
- Flash grew up in a rather broken household, which he soon left as an apprentice to an enterprising photographer. Soon after he left, his parents divorced and his mother went on to concieve a daughter in cloudsdale. He has only recently learned of this and has yet to make actual contact with his newly-discovered sister.
- More recently, Flash was kidnapped by a cliche-obsessed mare named Dr. Cliche, who immediately proclaimed herself to be his nemesis. She susequently let him go with a warning to never interfere with her again. Unfortunately, Flash has no idea what he did to attract her attention, so that might be difficult.
