An Earth pony religious order, analogous to the anabaptists (Amish, Mennonite). Based on the observation that magma both creates and consumes stone, Anapyrists hold that Celestia birthed the world from fire, that all things fade to dust and are eventually reborn again through fire.

Here's the longer summary of Bramblestar's Storm I promised. I may have mixed up some of the events here, because I'm writing this from memory. It's also pretty long, so I have it under a read more.
The prologue has the cats of the Clans joining together on the island to mourn the cats lost in the battle. The main story cuts ahead six moons later to the middle of Newleaf, beginning with Bramblestar having a nightmare. Hawkfrost appears and taunts him about being a failure.

He wakes up and staggers out of his den. T
