These are the Elements of Companionship, also called the Elements of Friendship. There are eight, and they are able to make worlds whole.

* Compassion (Kindness)
* Honesty (Truth)
* Joy (Laughter)
* Loyalty
* Forgiveness
* Generosity
* Insight (Understanding)
* Magic (Dream, Vision, Mystery, Manifestation)

It's clear that we now have seven ponies in MLP:FiM who are in the group, if you count Twilight's new student Starlight Glimmer -- she was included for the sake of forgiveness. But who is the eighth Element?

It's not hard to guess: Who is the observer that keeps having sudden and useful insights? Spike.

So let's relate each element with the character who represents them:

* Compassion: Fluttershy, the carer and teacher.
* Honesty: Applejack, the trustworthy one.
* Joy: Pinkie Pie, who always had a Surprise in her waiting to come out.
* Loyalty: Rainbow Dash, the athlete and warrior.
* Forgiveness: Starlight Glimmer, the fallen soldier redeemed.
* Generosity: Rarity, a star in her own right, able to give freely from her inspired fortune.
* Insight: Spike, the young observer.
* Magic: Twilight Sparkle, a Princess manifest in the academic seeker.

These aspects of spirit and friendship are taught by the goddess Epona, Mother Horse, who is the guiding soul of the Poni way. When she speaks to her own, it is rarely as a commanding diety, but rather as a companion who guides.
