Stable Two, Apple bucker / Cook(c.28)
|Family||Apple Bloom (sister)
|Accessories||Brown stetson hat|
Applejack was a farmer, tending to her family's farm, Sweet Apple Acres alongside her older brother Big Macintosh, her younger sister Apple Bloom, and their grandmare Granny Smith. Following the return of Nightmare Moon she joined Twilight Sparkle in retrieving the Elements of Harmony, taking up the Element of Honesty.
The Great War
Like the rest of the future Ministry Mares, Applejack was kept away from any major involvement with the war during the first decade at Princess Celestia's insistence. She instead continued maintaining her regular duties on the family farm, but was occasionally being sent on diplomatic trips and other royal missions that were far from any fighting.
Following the Littlehorn Massacre and Princess Luna's rise to power, the Mane 6 were asked to assume direct roles in helping to guide Equestria through the war in whatever way they saw fit via the creation of the Ministries. Applejack chose to devote her Ministry to seeking to improve and promote technological and industrial growth. She chose several prominent business ponies to help run the Ministry, trusting them to have a better idea how best to fund and encourage Equestrian businesses through the new Ministry of Wartime Technology.
She remained working her family farm until her brother died while preventing the assassination of Princess Celestia at Shattered Hoof Ridge. Following this, she returned to her Ministry with a single project for them to accomplish: create a suite of armor that would have saved Big Mac's life. In order to fund it she sold Sweet Apple Acres to Stable-Tec. Since it was run in part by Applebloom, the only real change was allowing Stable 2 to be built underneath the barn. Approximately a year after Big Mac's death the power armor project was completed with the introduction of the first Steel Ranger, SteelHooves AKA Sergeant Applesnack, a stallion that Applejack had begun dating at some point during the past year.
While working on the Steel Ranger project Applejack discovered the ponies she had trusted to run her Ministry without her supervision were corrupt, using the Ministry as a way to enrich themselves and their companies, rather than doing their best to help all of Equestria. She began attempting to reform things, prompting the leaders she was threatening to attempt an assassination on her. Within a year, these leaders arranged for the wires on her apartment's elevator to be cut while she was in it. Applejack survived, and as soon as she was recovered immediately fired everypony on the board.
Her relationship with Applesnack grew closer, to the point she believed he was about to propose to her when their relationship soured upon her discovering him over the body of her friend Zecora, whom he had killed believing she was a traitor, when in reality she was working as a secret double agent for Equestria amongst the Zebras. The two grew distant, despite Applejack's attempts to keep them together - something she fought to do because she was already pregnant with Applesnack's foal at the time. However, they did not have time to try and mend their relationship before the Last Day.
The Last Day
During the Last Day, Applejack and Applesnack were outside of Canterlot before the shield went up, helping to guide the evacuation of the surrounding settlements such as Zebratown. During this, she left to help make sure her family arrived safely in Stable 2. She made it there in time, ending up sealed inside when the doors shut.
Sweetie Belle had been chosen to be the first Overmare and was under strict orders to keep the Stable sealed until the soil and environmental sensors reported outside conditions safe enough for exploration or re-habitation and followed her instructions strictly. Applejack repeatedly tried to get Sweetie Belle to open the door in a desperate attempt to try to bring Applesnack inside or to allow her to go find him since she was pregnant with their child. Sweetie Belle refused, and Applejack gave birth to Applesnack's child in Stable 2.
She worked ten years in the artificial orchard bucking apple trees and another ten years as a cook following a hip injury. Eventually, Applejack died of old age. After her death, she was buried in the Stable 2 orchard.
|Applejack in Broken Steel|
Krogoth was first dreamt up by Applejack during the war. Applejack managed to get Twilight Sparkle on board with her project, convincing her to send supplies and staff to aid in Krogoth's construction. Applejack brought Blueberry Muffin into the project when she needed an expert on magical railgun technology. They had upscaled her technology to fit onto Krogoth's sides much like a battle-saddle. Krogoth was built and modeled to look like a giant Steel Ranger and had two eyes/optical sensors to detect threats. Krogoth was primarily built by convicts who would work on building Krogoth for their eventual freedom. Krogoth also had a Crusader Mainframe built into it, to operate it's numerous primary, secondary and weaponry systems. Krogoth also had a Stable-Tec reactor to power it. An 'accident' occurred during the mainframe installation which left the mare responsible for installing it, Short Circuit in a vegetative, comatose state. Her mind/consciousness had actually been stolen by the Krogoth. Blueberry Muffin argued against deploying Krogoth when it's primary weapons, i.e, the massive twin railguns proved to be powerful enough to shatter a Celestia-tier shield spell. This was discovered during one of it's scheduled test firings of its primary weapon. Krogoth's devastating and destructive potential made the weapon a threat to Celestia and Luna. Applejack argued it would only attack them if they attacked first. Its primary objective was to eliminate all threats to Equestria and win the war against the zebra.
