Lionheart is a Canterlot Ghoul Bat pony, who formerly served as part of Princess Luna's royal guard. Mouse is a white mouse that breathes Pink Cloud. They were recruited by Homage prior to Chapter 44, but are introduced in that chapter.
All that is known of Lionheart's past is that he served as part of Princess Luna's honor guard, and has in the past flown her Sky Chariot. He is now a Canterlot Ghoul. At some point prior to the final strike on Canterlot, Princess Luna enchanted all of her guards' armor to make them all speak with the Royal Canterlot Voice at all times.
It is unknown how he became partnered with Mouse, likely the two encountered each other whilst still in Canterlot.
Mouse was formerly a Dragon that lived beneath Canterlot. (hinted to be the mother of the dragons born in Canterlot prior to the Last Day: including Spike) Prior to her transformation, she had been fused with her hoard by Pink Cloud, and infused with enough of it that she began breathing it instead of fire or smoke.
As a curative measure, a crazed Alicorn devised a spell to turn the dragon into something that would pose less of a threat. This spell was tied to a fireworks display in Princess Luna's chambers, and triggered by Littlepip.
It is unknown how Mouse and Lionheart first encountered each other and became partners.
Lionheart and Mouse formed a formidable duo, Lionheart's flight and combat experience allowed them to take down Enclave attackers and fly around the wasteland quickly. Mouse's ability to breath pink cloud is also a potent weapon in their arsenal.
They had gained the nickname 'The Demon' from the Enclave and took out Enclave Cloudships attacking the Wasteland. The duo were part of the massive attack Littlepip had planned against the Enclave's S.P.P control tower at Neighvarro, both of them providing valuable combat assistance. Lionheart personally rescued Ditzy Doo after she performed a Sonic Radboom to clear a large portion of the cloud cover.
Lionheart, after rescuing Ditzy Doo, would go on to form a romantic relationship with the ghoul mare. The two ghouls would continue to run Ditzy's delivery service 'Absolutely Everything' and raise Ditzy's adoptive daughter, Silver Bell.
Due to the dangers of Mouse breathing Pink Cloud, the two of them have devised a safe means of transport for the transformed Dragon in enclosed spaces: She seals herself inside a hamster ball that has been fused shut by Pink Cloud and is completely airtight. While it is not known if there are other measures involved in containing the substance within the hamster ball, it seems likely.
Mouse is described as a white mouse with pink eyes.
Lionheart is shown to be a capable flyer and combatant. His armour (and being a Canterlot ghoul) makes him extremely resistant to damage. He also has a 'PipLeg' that he can activate or interface with speakers to emit the same necrotic effect other Canterlot transmitters have. Mouse has the ability to breathe concentrated Pink Cloud at will, though she cannot stop herself from exhaling at least some of the substance involuntarily as well.
Between the two of them, they are the only combatants known to have taken down an Enclave Raptor in combat.
Ditzy Doo - Marries Lionheart after chapter 45.
