**To be fair its actually somewhat subverted in KQ5 by Josh's own acting itself (as he actually did inject emotions in the way he inflects his voices in various lines). At various points during the story Graham shows empathetic sadness and sometimes anger over the plight of others, he shows fear in a few instances, he shows his worry when Cedric is injured, and when he thinks he might have died (ending), and in general kindly and compassionate demeanor to those around him, and he shows anger at Mordack in several places. He also shows his snarky sense of humor at times especially in some of the comments he replies to Cedric. The only emotion he doesn't clearly show but is describe by the narrator as having is sadness for the loss of his family. Increased levels of distress while trying to explain his situation to the deaf hermit. He never shows this outwardly other than shock and worry throughout the games. "What a wonderful bluebird. It could almost make Graham happy again if it wasn't for his family.", "King Graham, heavy of heart, searches far and wide for his beloved family who've been stolen by an evil wizard."

** he idea that he is 'peasant' also subverts the idea that he is actually the son of a nobleman as mentioned in other sources (and other sources including manuals describe Graham as a 'noble' or 'princely').

!!Connor
Although not technically part of the Royal Family proper (he is not known to be related to Graham even distantly), he is part of the Knighthood of Daventry, much like Graham before him, and was the last mainline hero of the original series, before the series Reboot. Personality wise he might be just as [[Stoic]] as Graham.

The daughter of a prince and a farmgirl, who was imprisoned in a tower by an evil witch and eventually rescued by Graham. As a result of her noble background, she tends to be more poised and cultured than her husband, and helps him run the castle and navigate around royal customs. Somewhat more sedate and homebody than the rest of the family, though when Rosella is lost at one point she proves to be a competent adventurer regardless while searching for her. Shares the role of protagonist of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride KQ7]]'' with her daughter Rosella.

* CoolAndUnusualP

to:

* CoolAndUnusualPCoolAndUnusualPunishment: He loves dealing with misbehaving slaves and townspeople this way, including things like [[InvoluntaryDance forcing them to do the YMCA dance]] or [[BalefulPolymorph turning them into snails temporarily]].
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Escaping from Manannan only constitutes the first half of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman KQ3]]''.
* DisintegratorRay: His other favorite method of dealing with unruly slaves.
* DropInNemesis: Loves doing this to his slaves or any townspeople he feels are out of line, via liberal application of VillainTeleportation.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:One of his slaves turns him into a cat using one of his own spells.]]
* SorcerousOverlord: Noteworthy that he was less elected or born to the position and instead is just powerful enough to be able to play BigBrotherIsWatching and torment anyone who steps out of line.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Even the games themselves manage to be inconsistent about how many [=Ns=] go in his name and where. Almost guaranteed any Let's Player will doof up saying it as a result, whether accidentally or as a purposeful lampshade.
** Even ''VideoGame/KingsQuestV'' and ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIII'' (remake) have different pronunciations. Though one would most assume the former is the correct one since it's WordOfGod.
* WizardClassic: Complete with WizardBeard and RobeAndWizardHat.
* WizardNeedsFoodBadly: And if you're his slave, you'd better be quick about getting it for him.

!!Mordack
[[quoteright:271:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mordakprof_4489.jpg]]
[[InTheBlood Brother of Manannan]] and main antagonist of [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder KQ5]]. [[MonumentalTheft He steals Castle Daventry]] and shrinks the Royal Family, threatening to feed them to Cat!Manannan if they don't restore him to normal. He has his own IslandBase and plenty of [[OurMonstersAreWeird strange-looking]] {{Mooks}}.

* AnimalMotifs: [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent Serpents]]. Two snake statues guard the entrance of his castle, and two of his forms in the ShapeShifterShowdown include [[ScaledUp a dragon and a snake]].
* DeathByIrony: Was planning to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this on Alexander by feeding him to the wizard whom he turned into a cat. [[spoiler:Instead, he himself fell victim to this trope when he transformed into [[PlayingWithFire a wall of fire]], only to be doused by Graham's storm spell.]]
* PlayingWithFire: One of his Iconomancy spells is to transform into a wall of fire. [[spoiler:However, [[DeathOrGloryAttack being pure flame instead of a man controlling flame]], [[KillItWithWater he was easily snuffed out by a storm spell]].]] As he would burn out after burning up Graham, this could be seen as a form of TakingYouWithMe.
* ScaledUp: Though it's not his first choice, or his last, he transforms into a snake [[spoiler:after Rabbit!Graham dodged his fireballs as a dragon]]. Of course, he did not realize that [[spoiler:Graham would transform into [[AnimalJingoism a mongoose]]]].
* SorcerousOverlord: Much like his brother.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Through Iconomancy. Besides snakes and fire, he can transform into a majestic dragon and... [[BigCreepyCrawlies a giant dragonfly thing]]. [[spoiler: Once Graham learns Iconomancy, it leads to ShapeShifterShowdown.]]

* RoyallyScrewedUp: Agreeing to sacrifice maidens during a mid-life crisis (ya a literal crisis of a three-headed dragon attacking the kingdom). He may have attempted sacrificed up to seventeen maidens altether (counting his own daughter). The series claims either the dragon demanded the sacrifices, it was the idea of his Prime Minister (akin to Grima Wormtongue), or it was his idea... Whatever the case his emotional state/morality/sanity is questioned after the fact (in The King's Quest Companion). Of course the full descent of his melencholy and madness is averted at the 11th hour (similar to Theoden) when his wizard prince son returns and saves the kingdom, and he avoids being destroyed by the evil dragon, or replaced in a coup... However, its one of those things that reader is told, continued to cause Graham nightmares and guilt for long after the fact. Even if his daughter and family accepted his apologies.

* FloweryElizabethanEnglish/YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Off and on (see Hoyle I, Hoyle 4, KQ1SCI and KQ8MOE), though he knows the more contemporary dialects (North American accent) too. In KQ1SCI it's in there too, but you primarily only see it when you quit the game (a closeup of Graham pops up and states; "Dost thou truly wish to cease our adventuring?". In addition Graham says a lot of "shalls" (somewhat archaic term in contemporary North-American English, but more common in British English). In KQ8 his words aren't so much archaic (he doesn't actually say much at all), but that he speaks in a more faux British accent.
