!Macintosh's Marauders
[[folder: As a group]]

A special [[TheSquad squad]] consisting of all three species of pony, designed for the purpose of special ops and combat. Led by Big Macintosh, the group formed a family-like unit over the course of the war. However, tragedy ended up destroying the squad following Big Macintosh's death at Shattered Hoof Ridge. The rest of the squad either died or suffered horrible fates, some appearing two-hundred years later in the Equestrian Wasteland.

!!Stonewing
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/foe_ph__stonewing_in_uniform_by_bogdan97_d9nvf8d.png]]

One of the Marauders' two pegasus members, Stonewing and Jetstream acted as aerial support and were a perfect tag team. He lost his voice when he took a bullet to the throat, and then his life when blindsided in a later battle. He actually survived and was used by Sanguine as the first test subject in Project Chimera, fused with a cockatrice and became Gorgon.

-----

* BigDamnHeroes: Pulled this multiple times during the war, saving Hoofington Memorial Hospital from destruction at one point.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler: Blackjack pushes him through a rock crusher.]]

* FlyingBrick: Not the most talented at landing.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifter: Transformed into a pony/cockatrice hybrid as part of Project Chimera.
* ObliviousToLove: Stonewing idolised Rainbow Dash, and remained oblivious to Jetstream's love for a long time. However, he realised when she started resting her head on his shoulder. When she confesses, he rejects her as gently as possible. A farewell letter found by Blackjack indicates he may have eventually returned Jetstream's feelings.
* TakenForGranite: Can turn his victims to stone by staring at them with his cockatrice eyes.
* TheSpeechless: Thanks to a throat injury he received from a gryphon sniper.

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Jetstream was so distraught by Stonewing's death that she asked Vanity to remove the memories of him. Vanity reluctantly agreed, but this only led to Jetstream's mental breakdown.
* LoveTriangle: Jetstream loves Stonewing who loves Rainbow Dash, while Vanity loves Jetstream. Jetstream is the only one who confesses.
* SanitySlippage: She slowly went insane following Stonewing's and Big Macintosh's deaths. Much to Vanity and Echo's regret, she was eventually put in the Happyhorn Gardens mental hospital where she believed she was still on duty with all of her teammates alive.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: While in Happyhorn Gardens, Jetstream is told by Garnet to go on a "rescue mission" to the zebra capital Roam to save Big Macintosh and Stonewing. Jetstream flies off, armed with a detonator that she thinks is a teleportation megaspell, actually a balefire bomb that kicks off the events of the Last Day.
* UpUpAndAway: Flies like a bullet.
