This section is devoted to ponies who lived long ago, but who are still important historical figures.
Clover the Clever
A mage of Unicornia, Clover was a student of famous mage Star Swirl the Bearded. She served Princess Platinum. Later, along with Private Pansy and Smart Cookie, she created the burning heart that ended the terrible winter that threatened Equestria.
The Commander of the Pegasi, Commander Hurricane was one of the founders of Equestria. As depicted by Rainbow Dash, he was a bloodthirsty, paranoid bully obsessed with battle and physical strength. Private Pansy was under his command.
Though it’s never specifically stated, Commander Hurricane is referred to with male pronouns throughout and is voiced by Rainbow Dash with the lowest voice she can comfortably manage. He was therefore most probably male.
The elected leader of the Earth Ponies, as depicted by Pinkie Pie. It is uncertain quite how she managed to get people to vote for her as the girl was quite obviously crazy. One of the founders of Equestria, she had a never ending stream of illogical and bizarre plans that she was convinced that were absolute genus, and it was everyone else that was stupid for not understanding them. Her loyal
slave secretary was Smart Cookie.
The daughter of the Unicorn King, Princess Platinum was one of the founders of Equestria. As depicted by Rarity she was a spoiled, over dramatic snob, who thought only of herself. Her loyal assistant was Clover the Clever.
A Pegasus soldier under Commander Hurricane, as depicted by Fluttershy she was a meek, soft spoken and somewhat cowardly pony. Bullied constantly by Commander Hurricane, she later admitted that she
hated really really really disliked him and united with Smart Cookie and Clover the Clever to create the burning heart that ended the terrible winter that threatened Equestria.
Secretary to Chancellor Puddinghead, as depicted by Applejack she was steadfast, loyal but very sarcastic, with a low opinion of her boss that she made perfectly clear on many occasions. With Private Pansy and Clover the Clever, she created the burning heart that ended the terrible winter that threatened Equestria.
Star Swirl the Bearded
The most famous mage of the Pre-Classical period, Star Swirl the Bearded’s most famous achievement was the creation of the amniomorphic spell. He was known for wearing bells on his pointed hat, and was the master of Clover the Clever. He has a shelf in the Library at Canterlot named after him. Twilight Sparkle dressed as him during the Nightmare Night festival (but nobody, save for Princess Luna, could recognize who she dressed up as). Princess Luna's recognization of Twilight dressing as Star Swirl (saying "thou even got the bells right") implies that she met him before (considering Luna's and Celestia's ability to live considerably long, this should not be a surprise).
