  • You Gotta Have A Rainbow Mane

Firefly

The leader of the squadron. Upon her return to Equestria, she is permitted by Princess Celestia to form her own team in an attempt to help other ponies in defending their homeland. But she also has a personal motive for coming back. Being a determined and confident mare, she has a natural knack for being a leader. Though Firefly may seem cold and apathetic, she has a sensitive soul and is a likable, understanding pony.
Upon giving leadership to Rainbow Dash in chapter 18 of The Equestrian War, Firefly remained in the team as second-in-command. In the epilogue, she decides to live with Rainbow as her "older twin sister". In Wings of Unity, she stands with the others against the Exile invasion.

Callsign: Flash (aka Mirage 1) note 

Fluttershy

A timid and shy pegasus pony, representing the Element of Kindness. She joins the Mirage squadron reluctantly, by Rainbow Dash's suggestion. Initially detests the war in every meaning, but upon seeing her animal friends being wounded by the griffin ruffians, Fluttershy begins to realize that fighting is sometimes the only option. She forms a deep bond of friendship with Rainbow Dash, as they have been friends since childhood.
In Wings of Unity, she once again finds herself facing the horrors of war. This time, however, Flutterhy is not hestitant to fight back.

Callsign: Butterfly (aka Mirage 5)

Lightning Bolt

One of many workers in Cloudsdale Weather Factory, she volunteers to join Firefly's team upon hearing of the griffin invasion. Lightning Bolt is quite intelligent and has a knack for all things mechanical. She's usually collected and reasonable, but there are times she slightly loosens her attitude. Lightning and Cloud Kicker are the best of friends and are rarely seen apart.
Since the epilogue of The Equestrian War, she and Cloud Kicker live together and they are quick to rejoin the squadron when another conflict erupts.

Callsign: Thunder (aka Mirage 3)

Cloud Kicker

An optimistic and cheerful young adult mare, she also worked in Cloudsdale Weather Factory prior to the griffin invasion. There, she met Lightning Bolt and befriended her. Since then, the two are rarely seen apart. Though she doesn't excel in any attribute, she's a good support and has great senses of sight and hearing.
Since the epilogue of The Equestrian War, she and Lightning Bolt live together and they are quick to rejoin the squadron when another conflict erupts.

Callsign: Sunny (aka Mirage 4)

Derpy

An average mare living in Ponyville with her little daughter, Dinky. Her whole life is turned upside down when the griffins attack Equestria. Thanks to Mirage squadron's assistance, she manages to rescue Dinky from her kidnappers and later, joins the squadron to help drive the invasion away. Though her outside appearance may suggest that Derpy is a silly pony, she possesses a great heart and is very empathic toward others.
In Wings of Unity, she lives together with Dinky and Pipsqueak, but rejoins the squadron when the Exiles invade Equestria. She cares deeply for her kids and would never want to see them hurt.

Callsign: Ditzy (aka Mirage 6)

Medley

Still a young pegasus, Medley joins the Mirage squadron while helping them defend Trottingham in early phase of the war. She's a fast flyer and has a truly eagle-eyed sight, becoming a valuable scout. Medley idolizes Rainbow Dash. Despite the initial low self-esteem, she hopes to overcome her problems and aid her friends in defending Equestria.
She became Fluttershy's animal assistant in the epilogue of The Equestrian War. In Wings of Unity, she bravely stands up against the Exile invasion alongside her friends, determined to do whatever she can to help.

Callsign: Kid (aka Mirage 7)
  • Break the Cutie: Literally.
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: When trying to save Rainbow Dash's life in chapter 11 of The Equestrian War, she charges head-on toward the griffins who hold Rainbow captive and defeats two of them.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes
  • I Told You So: Medley knew that not every griffon was a bastard. Turns out she was right.
  • Little Miss Badass: She's the youngest among the Mirage fliers.
  • The Knights Who Say Squee: Medley considers Rainbow Dash a superior flier and the best pegasus in Equestria.
  • Palette Swap: Has the same design as Lightning Bolt, albeit a little shorter.
