~ Sunburst promising to stay in touch with Starlight.
Sunburst is a male unicorn pony, the childhood friend of Starlight Glimmer, and royal crystaller to Flurry Heart. After saving Starlight from some falling books and earning his cutie mark, he left for Canterlot to become Princess Celestia's student. Years later, he resides in the Crystal Empire, and eventually rekindles his friendship with Starlight with the help of Twilight Sparkle and Spike.
Sunburst is Starlight Glimmer's childhood friend, who left to study magic in Canterlot when they were foals. In the present day, he lives in the Crystal Empire. Sunburst isn't that magically powerful for a unicorn, but his knowledge of magical theory is second to none.
Though Sunburst's own magic isn't any greater than the average unicorn's, his knowledge of magic is superior than even the Princesses. He even recognized at a glance Twilight's reconstruction of the Spell of Relic Reconstitution. More than this though, his talent seems to be applying this knowledge in abstract or theoretical ways (compared to Twilight who is very straightforward when it comes to the use of magic she learns). That is he is able to use his knowledge of how magic works on ancient and powerful objects to realize that no one spell can fix the Crystal Heart, and that various spells must be combined in a certain way.
A Trivial Pursuit is the only episode in which Sunburst appears without Starlight Glimmer.
