The blue pony's master Obsidian was the one who ruled the land, he did this by performing the forbidden spells. With his magic he created Umbra ponies which were the blooming of the seeds of darkness. Umbra ponies are able to drain the magic of any pony. If the magic is drained from the pony, the pony disappears. This is why the spells Obsidian used are now forbidden. Princess Luna told Twilight that Umbra ponies don't have their own heart, they just follow orders from their master. They are also born with the memories of a pony, and have no name. Their master disappeared a long time ago for an unknown reason. Twilight didn't believe what Luna said about not having a heart, and gave the blue pony a name, her new name is Sliverlay. Twilight believes that shadows understand what real light is. 

Twilight thinks that the magic of friendship can save them both, Sliverlay laughs at the idea, saying friendship won't save you.
