The Pie family
The Pies are a family of ponies living and working on a rock farm. They're all distantly related to Stinkberry and Blackbird Coffyn, as "Coffyn" was an old family name. The current patriarch is Igneous Pie, who is married to Cloudy Quartz. Their children consists of Maud Pie, the oldest daughter who is a geologist who is married to Tarnished Teapot; Pinkie Pie, who is the Element of Laughter; and the youngest, Marble and Limestone Pie, who are twin sisters.

     Marble Pie 
First Appearance: The Weed

Maud Pie's younger sister, and the twin of Limestone Pie.

  • Adorkable: Very much, especially if she wants something or is talking about Sonneur.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: She generally stays out of the way, but when something irks her, she will not hesitate to speak up.
  • Birds of a Feather: She's attracted to Sonneur because of their quiet, shy demeanors.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: She (quietly) calls out her family for embarrassing and humiliating Maud and Tarnish after they share their First Kiss, especially Pinkie and Limestone who laughed at the couple. This causes Pinkie to realize how much she hurt Maud, and later apologizes to her older sister for her insensitivity.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: Gender Flipped, but she struggles with this.
  • The Chick: Emotionally sensitive, and far more perceptive than she appears.
  • Elopement: Does this with Sonneur to avoid making a fuss. Igneous has forgiven them, and Cloudy's still working on it.
  • Face Doodling: Draws on Tarnish's face after he passes out from work, in addition to tying up his hair in bows. Tarnish finds it hilarious when he wakes up, to Maud's approval.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: She's quiet and shy. Her twin, Limestone, is loud and talkative.
  • The Prankster: Has a few shades of this, being the one to prank Tarnish when he passes out after work, and apparently a feature of her relationship with Sonneur.
  • The Quiet One: Not as extreme as some examples, but tends not to use words when gestures will do. When she speaks, her voice is very soft.
  • Self-Made Man: Invests her share of the opal geode in a guano mine with her sister, successfully.
  • Shrinking Violet: As in canon.
  • Twice Shy: With Sonneur Gaunt, for a while. With some help from Tarnish, she gets over it.

     Igneous Pie 
First Appearance: The Weed

Patriarch of the Pie family. Despite his stony exterior, he deeply cares for those around him, and maintains his farm well.

     Cloudy Quartz 
First Appearance: The Weed

The matriarch of the Pie family. Though a formidable mare, she maintains her home as welcoming as she can, and its later upgrade in security status makes it a haven for several characters when they need to recover, physically and emotionally.

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Not normally, but has her moments.
  • Apron Matron: Nicer than most examples of this, but no less tough. When she says that the Princesses themselves could not challenge her in her kitchen, you believe her.
  • Cool Old Lady: The mother of four grown mares, and a very nice, motherly pony.
  • Dancing Is Serious Business: Firmly believes so, and all her daughters can dance well.
  • Education Mama: Despite not being related, after discovering Tarnish was falling behind in his studies, she makes him hit the books lest she spank him. Unlike most examples, she only wants him to do well and is not very pushy about it.
  • Good Parents: Like her husband, she is respected and loved by her daughters.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Disapproves of any language stronger than this, even "Tartarus".
  • Granny Classic: Matures into one.
  • Happily Married: To Igneous Pie.
  • The Immodest Orgasm: Apparently Maud had to explain to Pinkie that their mother was not in distress quite often when they were both foals.
  • I Want Grandkids: Downplayed, she does want grandfoals, but doesn't push too hard. While she acknowledges that Maud has Pebble and Sly, that didn't stop her from pairing Limestone with Tarnish, to both their annoyance.
  • Like a Son to Me: She gradually starts seeing Tarnish as her son, which she later expresses before he leaves for Ponyville by train.
    Cloudy Quartz: I always wanted a little colt... I never got one. Come back to us Tarnish. This is your home now.
  • Making Love in All the Wrong Places: In The Weed, Cloudy begins feeling rather frisky in Chapter 40. Igneous suggests the bed, but Cloudy suggests they do it on the kitchen table. After all, that's how Maud was born...
  • Mountain of Food: A competent, if not exceptional cook; she understands the value of quantity when your large family does manual labour for a living.
  • Parental Substitute: To Tarnish. Eventually, he becomes a part of the family as much as her own daughters were.
  • Team Mom: Literally to the Pies, as she is their biological mother, but she often acts as this for the groups staying at her farm.

     Limestone Pie 
First Appearance: The Weed

Another of Maud's younger sisters, and twin to Marble.

  • Boisterous Bruiser: Loud, jovial and still a Pie.
  • Motor Mouth: Frequently. Breaks the ice when Tarnish meets the Pie family by launching into a long series of questions and comments without pausing for breath or answers until Cloudy interrupts her.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Shares this relationship with Marble. Limestone's loud and talkative, while Marble's very softspoken and withdrawn.
  • Self-Made Man: Invests her share of the opal geode in a guano mine with her sister, successfully.
