     The Eightmazing Eight 

Sunset Shimmer
The former Fallen Princess of Canterlot High School, whose life changes drastically when she's taken in by a foster family.

  • Artistic Age: Despite appearing to be a sixteen-year-old girl, Sunset's actually a twenty-nine-year-old mare.
  • Be All My Sins Remembered: Her past haunts her at first but goes away once she becomes intertwined with her family.
  • Big Eater: Sunset easily finishes off a XXXL Fatburger, fries, and large caramel shake. One would think she eats like a horse.
  • Happily Adopted: Well, happily fostered, at any rate. Then they give her the adoption papers for her birthday, though it hasn't gone through as of the end of Book III. The formalities go through at the end of Book V.
  • Has Two Mommies: Celestia is the closest she has to a biological mother (but is technically adoptive), and she's happily adopted by the human Twilight Velvet and her family by the time Phase Two of the Berylverse is done.
  • Race Lift: Sunset is apparently Caucasian in the 7DSJverse. Confirmed with the human Sunset Shimmer being of Franco-American descent.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: At first, becoming The Atoner to make up for all she's done. After the incident with the Vibe she regains her position atop the school, but this time as a Lovable Alpha Bitch instead of just a regular one.

Twilight Sparkle
The human counterpart of Equestria's Princess Twilight Sparkle, and Sunset Shimmer's new foster sister.

  • Agent Scully: Twily doesn't believe in magic in the slightest. Given who her counterpart is, any meeting between the two will be interesting, to say the least.
  • Ditzy Genius: Twilight has almost none of this, especially when it comes to affectionate displays with her Sunset and Octavia, to the point that it becomes Incest Subtext. By Book III, however, she has picked up more than enough of Sunset's habits and is acting more like her than their cousin.
  • Happily Failed Suicide: Twilight walks into traffic as a result of her nightmares, but is saved in the nick of time by Sunset.
  • Hidden Depths: From inferences, it's suggested that Twilight also knows most of the major Latinist languages, i.e. French, Italian, Latin and Spanish. Additionally, she plays the violin.
  • Race Lift: Twilight and her family are Americans of German descent (on their paternal side), as of Book III. Revealed to be Hispanic on her mother's side as of Book IV.
    • Latino Is Brown: Inverted, as the darker-skinned Rainbow Dash (also Hispanic) is surprised to find that Twilight's family is Hispanic as well.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Spike's human counterpart is her little brother, and Octavia Melody's human counterpart is her paternal cousin. Sunset Shimmer, being fostered by her family, becomes her sister.

Octavia Melody
The human counterpart of Equestria's Octavia Melody.

  • Elegant Classical Musician: At least when she's on the clock.
  • Fusion Dance: Before she was born, Octavia was going to be one of a set of twins... but they merged in the womb, so she has two sets of DNA. She finds the whole situation incredibly creepy. It gets worse when it turns out said twin is still alive and conscious within her.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Gradually becomes jealous of Sunset being closer to Twilight, especially as Octavia had not believed Sunset when she said Twilight had problems. Since her subconscious referred to Sunset as "that newcomer", something Octavia herself doesn't believe she'd call Sunset, it remains to be seen whether it's a darker part of her mind or something else. It eventually turns out to be the spirit of her absorbed, unborn twin.
  • Race Lift: As of Book III, Tavi's paternal family is of German descent and her maternal side is of Spanish ( possibly Equestrian) descent.
  • Related in the Adaptation: The local versions of Shining Armor, Twilight Sparkle and Spike are her paternal cousins, and Sunset Shimmer, being fostered by their family, becomes her cousin as well.
    • On her mother's side, she has Octavia "Fiddlesticks" Van Clef, and her second cousins Screwball and Midnight Moondust, who are sisters.
  • Woman Scorned: Whether it's her family situation, a leftover from the Vibe incident or the actual former (as Rarity suggests), Tavi seems to fit this stereotype. It eventually turns out to be the influence of her absorbed twin Melody.

The human counterpart of Equestria's Applejack. As with her pony counterpart, she lives with her brother, sister and grandmother; unlike them, her parents are still alive.

  • Action Girl: Applejack is a practitioner of Tae Kwon Do and those she's fought tend to regret it.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Despite coming to Rainbow Dash's rescue from the hands of Gilda and Lightning Dust, Applejack still gets punished for engaging in fistcuffs on school property.
  • Cute Bruiser: As a sign of her strength, she caved in one of the heavy plastic doors in the school's gym.
  • Family Business: Instead of a farm, AJ helps her family run a convenience store in town which was the primary reason for them moving to Canterlot from Havener, Oklahoma.
  • Farmer's Daughter: Played with; though her family has left the farm in lieu of running an organic store, AJ still retains much of the nature from those days.
  • Funetik Aksent: AJ's Oklahoma drawl isn't as pronounced as the other members of her family due to her upbringing in California, but it's still noticeable.
    • It's also weaker than that of her counterpart.
  • My Parents Are Dead: Averted. Applejack's parents are well and truly still alive, although they almost died in a car accident that left her mother with permanent difficulties in walking.
  • Nice Hat: Unlike her counterpart, AJ does not like hats, given that it messes her hair up. However, she does have an old Stetson she wears on occasion.

Pinkie Pie
The human counterpart of Equestria's Pinkie Pie.

  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite being certifiably kooky, she often is able to provide ample advice to others when the need arises, such as with Blossomforth.
  • Dead Guy Junior: At least a half example - she was named for both Quartz's own mother (whose status is unknown) and Igneous's older sister, who died of the same neurological disease Pinkie was born with.
  • Expressive Hair: Like her pony counterpart, her hair seems to reflect her state of mood, notably deflating if she feels sad or depressed.
  • Farmer's Daughter: Well, technically a quarryman's daughter....
  • In the Blood: The neurological disease Pinkie was born with runs in the family, having killed one of her aunts when said aunt was nine. Bipolar Disorder also runs in the family... and the treatment for her nerve disease triggered it in her.
  • Nurture over Nature: Pinkie believes her upbringing in California separates her from her family.
  • Related in the Adaptation: The niece of the local Carrot and Cup Cake (her mother and Cup are sisters).
  • Sad Clown: Pinkie laughs on the outside, but hides a deep, secret pain on the inside. She even compares herself to the Trope Codifier at one point.

Rainbow Dash
The human counterpart of Equestria's Rainbow Dash.

  • The Ace: The captain of Canterlot High's JV soccer team.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: Being Hispanic, Rainbow can speak Spanish. Strangely enough, so can her counterpart.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Rainbow comes to the rescue of Roseluck, but gets pounded into the ground by Lightning Dust.
  • Race Lift: Rainbow is Hispanic, as her father Rainbow Blitz is Mexican-American.
  • Related in the Adaptation: She's descended from the local version of Commander Hurricane, has Scootaloo as her Happily Adopted little sister, and Spitfire as her cousin.

The human counterpart of Equestria's Rarity.

  • Badass Adorable: When she was assaulted by Blueblood, she took care of him in short order.
  • The Confidant: Rarity is the first of Sunset's friends that the latter confides with what her true form is.
  • The Fashionista: And a rare case, as she's a hands-on seamstress as well.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Especially when its one's hair color, darling.
  • Hidden Depths: Due to playing videogames with her cousin (a now-professional gamer) when she was younger, Rarity is an expert videogamer.
    • It's implied that Rarity also speaks French.
  • Proper Lady: Apparently in very much contrast to the rest of her family.
  • Socialite: Or as much as one can be in high school.

The human counterpart of Equestria's Fluttershy.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: When Octavia exposes her parentage, Fluttershy has a BSOD and does not handle it well.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: Being part Japanese, Fluttershy is fluent in the language.
  • Disappeared Dad: Left when she and Angel were little. As it turns out, Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You, and he's secretly been supporting the family this entire time.
  • Hidden Depths: To the shock of pretty much all her friends, especially Octavia, Fluttershy is an accomplished multi-instrumental musician, though she learned her skills not from her father but from her paternal grandfather.
  • Race Lift: Her maternal grandmother Kimono (wife of Tradewinds and mother of Posey) is Japanese.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Angel, the human counterpart of Angel Bunny, is her little brother. Discord of all people is their Disappeared Dad. Tirek, his former bandmate and still good friend, is her godfather.
  • Theiss Titillation Theory: Due to her chest size, even though she dresses modestly for the most part, this is always a concern for her.

  • The Atoner: Tries to make things right with Sunset and everyone else she wronged after a good hard look in the proverbial mirror.
  • Knife Nut: She carries a switchblade... and used it on Sunset, but lost it in the process.

  • Race Lift: Though not explicitly stated, by inference, Gilda is likely African-American. This was later confirmed in ''meanwhile...''
