The Changelings, the shape-shifting beings that attacked Equestria's capitol city, appear savage and ruthless; their queen even more so.
But there is always another side to every story...
Inside the memories of the seemingly wicked race's leader lie a tale as hidden as the species itself. Within her mind, she has written out her history; her beginnings, her life, and her struggles... and what came after that fateful day in Canterlot.
These are the memories of Chrysalis, fifth queen of the High Swarm.
