Applejack as Beastmaster
Primary Attribute: Strength
Role: Initiator, Disabler, Durable
Lore:The way of the earth pony is one that is as ancient as time itself: the way of the land, to make the surroundings your own and understand how nature can take away as much as it can give. While all earth ponies follow this way of life, the Apple family followed this ideology more than most.
Generations ago, the last of the Elements of Reality, Titan, lay dying on the grounds of what would become New Appleloosa. In a weak tone, he pleaded to the winds of the land to aid him in his final moments. The wind heeded his call and brought to him a single earth pony, a tan stallion who was so awestruck by the creature that he did not heed the element’s blood now seeping into his hooves. Knowing that Titan was dying, the stallion galloped off to find more help. Upon returning with his family to help, he found the place Titan once lay was now barren.
Ridden with guilt at failing to save Titan, the stallion trotted towards home. As he did, he noticed small cracks on the ground began to form wherever his hooves now fell and small rocks had begun shaking around him. The Apple family did not initially know what to make of this new gift their eldest son had now inherited, but soon realized that it would not be going away, and through many generations began to make the gift their own.
In Ponyville, a mare by the name of Applejack didn’t think much about the fact that she would be next to inherit part of her forefathers powers, worrying much more about her family’s new harvest. It wasn’t until the other side of the earth pony way, innovation without restraint, came to Ponyville that Applejack began to question her choice.
Two ponies with a machine that cared nothing for the trees that bore the much sought after fruit, caring only about the shiny red apples themselves. They began slicing down the trees, turning whole forests to lifeless wasteland. Wherever they went, a trail of ash and a blanket of smoke followed. Without any trees to hold the land in place, Applejack knew that a landslide was soon to follow in their wake.
Knowing that she could no longer deny her own powers, Applejack exiled herself to the everfree forest in order to better hone her skills. Within nine, grueling, months of training alongside her friend, and then mentor, Zecora, Applejack strengthened her own body to the powers of the wilderness, and earth. When word of the fight between Chaos and Harmony reached her ears, Applejack knew that this was the opportunity to set things right. Upon arriving back home, her family was overjoyed at her acceptance of her gift but her friends did not know who the pony beneath the cloak and red facepaint was.
Applejack then lifted the hood of her cloak, and spoke, “Howdy, I’m Applejack the Beastmaster.”
“Honestly, Honesty is somepony you do not want to cross. The power of Titan within her has granted her the power and fortitude of both beast and mare.” - Twilight Sparkle, Grand Magus
