Discord

The spirit of Chaos and Disharmony and the first born of all of his mother's children. Born deep beneath the earth, he left his mother shortly after discovering the surface world and never looked back. You know what happened next. However between Serenity and his mother it seems his past is catching up with him... Most of the tropes that apply to him here apply to his canon counterpart.
Ugh, that wasn't exactly for 'fun' you know. It was only done out of necessity.
  • Ambiguously Evil: His canon actions aside, he's yet to do anything really evil. He must have done something though, because Celestia sure doesn't think so.
  • Angst? What Angst?: If Serenity's death bothers him, he's very good at hiding it.
  • Berserk Button: When he finds out that his powers are gone, his reaction makes his reaction to Fluttershy beating him at his own game look tame in comparison.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Thanks to his mother's gem. To make matters worse, if said gem isn't toughing him, he turns back to stone!
  • The Casanova: Celestia used to love him, (she still has feelings for him) Twilight's falling in love with him, Serenity fell in and continues to love him... Discord is quite the ladies man.
  • Deuteragonist: Shares this role with Twilight.
  • The Dreaded: When he ruled Equestria, most ponies feared him. The fact that Serenity not only doesn't but actually seems to like what he does gains his attention.
  • Interspecies Romance: He eventually fell in love with Serenity. He doesn't seem to realize this just yet though.
  • It Amused Me: Strangely enough his antics in the past seem to be this instead of For the Evulz.
  • Jerkass/Troll: Although he does have the occasional Jerk with a Heart of Gold moment.
  • Lack of Empathy: He seems to have more empathy here then in canon, but when Twilight tells him how horrible he made things for her, he just blows it off, saying that was just "fun and games", as well as a way to keep himself safe from the Elements.
  • Pet the Dog: Giving Serenity a home in Memories, and From Here to Eternity has the times where he protected the mane six from harm.
  • Superpower Lottery: Even among his siblings, he's powerful. Even Animosity is dwarfed by his power!
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: Has a strange aversion to death. Zecora was even told stories of him saving the lives of others.
  • Tranquil Fury: He acts surprisingly calm for someone who says the only thing keeping him from ripping apart everything in sight is the chance to get his powers back.
  • Villain Protagonist: Mostly in Memories.
  • Wings Do Nothing: Averted. He can fly with ease despite their small size after losing his powers.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: Doesn't get mad often, but when he does, he gets scary.

Twilight Sparkle

This unicorn (this story takes place before Magical Mystery Cure) is Celestia's student and the Element of Magic. She and her friends accompany Discord in his quest to get his powers back. As time passes it seems more and more like she has no idea what she's getting herself into though. Most of the tropes that apply to her here apply to her canon counterpart.
Maybe she's like Pinkie Pie. Maybe laughter is how she deals with fear.

Serenity

An orphaned earth pony mare who met Discord as a filly and came to live with him in the Princess's castle. Their friendship eventually blossomed into something more. Was killed by Celestia and Luna in order to gain the Element of Laughter. However thanks to Discord she came back to life... (and given her some new powers as well) And she is NOT happy. When younger she would have a rather peppy voice like Pinkie's but it would be softer and less high pitched than her. While older her voice is smooth, deep, and tired sounding. She is purple with purple eyes and a messy black and violet mane. After dying and coming back to life, her entire body is grey. Strangely enough, she has no cutie mark.
But you didn't have to turn him back to stone!

     Discord's family 

Mother

The mother of Discord and his siblings. Very mysterious. Not much is known about her. She spoils her children but does some serious favoritism. She also likes to seem weaker than she really is. She likes to act as though she gives her children free will, but she doesn't in reality. Her home is off the Edge of the World, a strange, mysterious place that is without color or sunlight. Sounds like Bea Arthur. She looks like a cross between Tiff and Celestia, for the most part. Her mane and tail are kept in different styles. The mane is curly, wavy, and kind of scraggly, and the tail is smooth and straight, tapering off to a spiky edge.
Don't worry about him Twilight Sparkle, he is no longer your concern...as of now.
  • The Ageless: She is two thousand years old at least.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the past, and dreams, hopes, or ambitions that have been tossed aside.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Maybe. She's definitely a very powerful being.
  • Bigger Bad: Although she may become the proper Big Bad of the story later on.
  • Body Horror: Most of her body is covered in cracks. No blood or anything, just cracks...
  • The Caligula: Word of God describes her as having sanity that is "next to nil". It must be where Discord (and Cacophony) got it from.
  • Chained by Fashion: She has a shackle on her right front leg, with a bit of broken chain attached to it.
  • The Dreaded: When someone like Animosity is reluctant to anger, upset, or disappoint you, you are this.
    • Discord seems to be afraid of her!
  • Despair Event Horizon: Her voice is that of someone who's given up all hope.
  • Equinoid Abomination: Probably. Either way, she looks like an pony. ...One with dragon wings, but a pony nonetheless.
  • Evil Matriarch: A possibility. Word of God says that she and Frieza would get along well with each other though, so make of that what you will.
  • Evil Overlord: Of the Edge of the World.
  • Fangs Are Evil: She has fangs. Oddly enough, they're broken.
  • The Ghost: At least for now, see Bigger Bad, above.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Animosity calls her his "queen" and mentions a throne that Discord is supposed to be next in line to.
  • Good Parents: Genuinely seems to love and care for her children and does not abuse or neglect them in any way. If anything, she has the opposite problem.
  • Hellish Pupils: Her eyes are slitted, like a cat.
  • Large and in Charge: While she's not that big compared to her children, she's still pretty big. She's a good foot taller then Celestia!
  • Lean and Mean: Described as being so thin that you can actually see her ribs.
  • Mama Bear: Oh my, yes. She loves her "babies."
  • My Beloved Smother: Likely one of the reasons why Discord decided to ditch her.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: While she can do things herself, she always has her children do her work for her.
  • Physical Goddess: Probably.
  • Time Abyss: Probably. She's definitely older than Discord is.
  • Villain Song: Doesn't have one but if she did it would most likely be about her lamenting about certain past events, making herself sound like the victim, then turning them into spite-filled reasons to be evil.
  • Winged Unicorn: She looks like one. However, her wings are made of metal and look more like dragon wings then bird wings.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Has the rather terrifying ability to suck out souls. It's what she'll do if somebody really pisses her off.

General:

Discord

See "Main Characters" folder.

Animosity

The dragon-like snake tail and the oldest sibling. He is the most powerful, perhaps even more so than Discord since he's more ruthless. Sounds like Alan Rickman.
"What do you say? Want to be the queen?"

Quarrel

The right lion paw and the second oldest sibling. Powerful, but he's lazy and doesn't exercise his abilities on his own that much. He sounds like Dr.Claw from Inspector Gadget, but almost always grouchy.
"I want Discord's HEAD!"

Wrangle

The right light blue bird wing and the third oldest sibling. The weakest, though she can actually do some things but she's also more like Schism. However she really shines when working as a team with Quarrel. Sounds like Rarity, but with a higher pitched voice.
"You're just being stupid again."

Squall

The right goat horn and the fourth oldest sibling. You haven't seen him in action yet... But he's got quite a bit of power up his sleeve. Sounds like Gimli from Lord of the Rings if he were a goat.
If we do this though, WE'LL be her favorites!

Schism

The right dark blue bat wing and the fifth oldest sibling. The one who started off the events of From Here to Eternity. Actually is more of a manipulator than a force of power. He'll make small bits of trouble that eventually become bigger and bigger and bigger... Has a high pitched, whiny/mocking voice.
What a dope for a sister! Ha HA! Too easy! So easy to irritate!

Strife

The left lizard leg and the dracon (or "dragon") part of draconequus. The fourth youngest sibling. Powerful but too stupid to really be able to control it. Sounds like Tone Luc.
Oh… Let's just kill him!

Dissonance/Dissidence

The left eagle claw and the third youngest sibling. Powerful but too stupid to really be able to control it. Sounds like Brittney Spears if she were ten years old and trying to sound screechy.
WHEEEEEHAAAAAAHOHOOO!

Tiff

The right goat leg and the equus (or "horse") part of draconequus. The second youngest sibling. Is like Schism, only more direct. She is also younger than him so her powers are not as obvious yet. Sounds like a young Judi Dench.
I have an errand.

Cacophony

The left deer antler and the youngest sibling. Insane AND powerful. He would have to have two voices. One would be like a child's; innocent and whiny sounding. The other would be dark, hissing, and malicious sounding.
Ooooooh! Well lookie over there...

How well does it match the trope?
