Okay, let's talk about the Background Student Six. Citrine Spark
is the quick thinker. She's a bit like Twilight, just much less prone to freaking out and with traces of Sparkler and a bit of Stygian thrown in for good measure. She actually happens to be a relative of Stygian's. Also, like Twilight, Citrine loves to read, mostly about science. By the way, she's completely unaware of how cute she is. Peppermint Goldylinks
is a happy but dreamy and kind-hearted pony somewhere between (less) Pinkie and (more) Fluttershy with Rarity's romantic streak thrown in for good measure. She is somewhat attracted to melancholic dreamers such as a certain blue unicorn. Peppie is the Yin to November Rain's Yang. And she's such a nice and kind pony that she can even handle skunks without endangering anypony. Berry Blend
bears similarities to Applejack. She's pragmatic, no-nonsense and straight-forward. If anypony is the group's voice of reason, it's her. Her knowledge of plants could make her a great farmer. She's also quite a good violinist across just about all genres, but that's just a hobby. November Rain
is the aforementioned melancholic dreamer, shaped by Seaddle's perpetually dreadful weather (which his big brother Spring Rain at least tries to keep at bay, but Spring loves rain). Before he met the other five, the one thing that provided him with happiness was playing the trumpet at jam sessions at Seaddle's various jazz bars. Jazz is where he really begins to live. He is the most musically inclined one of the six, and he loves poetry. Melancholy will always be a part of him, and sometimes you just want to hug him. Good thing he has got a pony who's eager to do just that. Again, he is the yang to Peppie's yin. Huckleberry
is the cloudcuckoolander of the group, but he has got the biggest heart of all six. Huck has to be the friendliest stallion you're likely to ever meet. He is a free spirit and the closest of the six to being a hippie. At the same time, he isn't dumb, and he can sometimes show a remarkable wisdom. Huck is also a skilled percussionist which he explains by having two extra limbs.
Finally, Auburn Vision
is kind of what Rainbow Dash would be, were she an earth pony stallion. The term that describes him the best is "gung-ho". He leaves diplomacy to others. As unstoppable as Auburn is, he can be brash and tactless. But like Dash, he is deeply loyal, and he would do anything for his friends. He shows a surprising lot of respect for Huck and especially his attitude. Auburn used to play in a big band and got his knack for the powerful East Coast jazz styles from there, and he believes this is something that's still missing in November Rain's life.
