Main characters Edit
The protagonist and narrator, Blackjack was a security mare in Stable 99 until she left the stable with the program EC-1101, which a party of raiders assaulted her Stable in search of. She often uses shotguns and her baton, but she is skilled with a variety of firearms. Blackjack is a white unicorn with red eyes, a red and black mane, and her cutie mark is a queen and ace of spades. She travels Hoofington attempting to crack the mysteries of EC-1101 and other Great-War-era secrets.
One of the limited male "breeding" population that live in the Medical section of Stable 99. After leaving Stable 99 with Blackjack, P-21 refuses to use firearms and instead sneaks around battles using all sorts of explosive weaponry, such as grenades and mines. His life in Stable 99 has left him in poor condition, and this affects him in many ways. P-21 is a blue earth pony with blue eyes and an even bluer mane. His cutie mark was replaced by the Mars symbol for males with 21 dots underneath it, in two rows of ten and then one dot under that.
Morning Glory is an Enclave pegasus, found by Blackjack and P-21 alone in the aftermath of a battle within an Enclave station. As a trained medic, her skills in tending to wounds often proves more helpful to the members of her party than her extensive knowledge of energy weapons and how to repair them. She is later betrayed by a fellow member of the Enclave, and she is determined to set things straight. She is a light-gray pegasus with a purple mane and her cutie mark is a sunrise.
An immortal Reaper, Rampage has no dirth of problems. She is often seen taking a few Mint-als, and likes to charge straight into the middle of a battle, using her size, strength, and claw weapons to rip any opponents apart. Rampage tries to figure out exactly who she is, but the clues appear one by one. She is a large off-white earth pony with red zebra stripes, usually wearing spiky armor that only covers a portion of her body; being immortal, she has less need for protection.
One of the Goddess's alicorns, Lacunae teams up with Blackjack and company after being told to do so by the Goddess. She is adept at using heavy weaponry such as miniguns, and complements this with her magical shields, teleportation, and magic arrows. Lacunae is dark blue and large like the rest of the alicorns, though she will often conceal her identity by hiding her wings under mourner's silk when in wasteland settlements.
When Blackjack and P-21 return to Stable 99, they bring Scotch Tape back outside with them. Scotch is young enough not to have her cutie mark, and the Wasteland wastes no time and every resource in traumatizing her. She is great at repairing and maintaining machinery, and often finds that her job in the Wasteland is to repair objects, just like in the Stable. She is a green earth pony with green eyes and a blue mane.
Boo is a Blank created by Project Chimera. She is completely white, has no cutie mark, and is somewhat skinny. It is a point of debate whether or not she has a soul, as she does not talk and sometimes acts more like a pet than a pony.
Stygius is a batpony -- a member of the species that acted as Luna's guards. He finds Blackjack alone and follows her because he finds her attractive.
The child of Fluttershy, Psychoshy is a yellow pegasus with a pale yellow mane. Her cutie mark is similar to Fluttershy's, but the the three butterflies have razor blades for wings. She battles by flying through the air and swooping down to strike with her power hooves. She was kept in stasis until Sanguine woke her and attempted to use her for his own purposes.
A Zebra mare of the Propoli tribe, one of the factions still under the control of the Zebra remnant. Xanthe originally lived in a pre-war missile silo until being conscripted as a technician into the remnant forces operating in the Hoofington area. Timid and extremely superstitious, she was exiled from the remnant after Blackjack 'cursed' her by showing her mercy in a confrontation. With nowhere safe for her she left for the town of Meatlocker where she once again met Blackjack and reluctantly helped her through Hightower.
