Tucked away in the gloomy confines of Everfree Forest shines one oddly welcoming, enigmatic spot: the home of Zecora, the zebra shaman. The striped equine's abode is built into sturdy bark of a behemoth tree, anointed with exotic decor from a foreign land.
Unlike Whitetail Wood, the Everfree Forest is not bound by the same laws as the rest of Equestria, as the animals care for themselves and the weather changes without the help of ponies. It is also home to some strange creatures, including the Ursa Major and Minor, and the parasprites, just to name a few. Because of this and it's overall sinister gloom, it's considered a taboo place to venture into. This forest is also home to Zecora, a supposedly 'evil enchantress' that many ponies fear.
