  3. CENTRAL CHARACTERS:
  4.  
  5. - Anonymous: The owner; recognized early on the advantages of large-scale applications of pony talents and grew a profitable business from it. Initially disbelieving of why "his ponies" would rebel and struggled with bouts of rage, constant interaction has lead him to be more understanding of their thinking.
  6.  
  7. - Cadance: Alicorn and former Princess of the Crystal Empire; placed in a position of rulership over the camp by Anonymous. Isn't sure what she feels about this - she hates helping a slaver, but recognizes that Anonymous is giving them far, far more than could ever be expected elsewhere, especially for her daughter.
  8.  
  9. - Thunderlane: Brother of Rumble. By the beginning of the story he was secretly spying on the camp's ponies for Anonymous, in exchange for Rumble being kept safe and given a more comfortable position. Later, he becomes the first of the camp's enslaved guards and eventually enters into a relationship with Vapor Trail.

  14.  
  15. - Flurry Heart: Alicorn and Cadance's daughter, ~7 years old. Brought to the camp by Anonymous to gain some leverage over Cadance and force her to obey, but also becomes Megan's servant and friend. Anonymous intends them to lead the camp as he and Cadance do.
  16.

  22.  
  23. - Mocha Cream: Unicorn, 15 years old. Anonymous' personal maid, grew to love (some would say be infatuated with) him - especially after he sheltered and had her healed after she was badly beaten by Autumn Frost, Comet Tail, Chrysocolla, and Windy Winters. Taken from her parents as a filly, she is nervous and stuttery.
  24.  
  25. - Rumble: Thunderlane's little brother. Rebellious and itching for freedom, he was one of the six ringleaders in Cadance's first escape attempt; spared a whipping by Thunderlane taking his place.
