* WhatTheHellHero: When he arrives after the Gatewatch has destroyed the Eldrazi Titans, he is initially furios. While Jace can explain the situation to him, he refuses to cooperate afterwards with the Gatewatch, and remarks that the other two of the three will not be as forgiving for their recklessness as he is.

Regardless of whether it happened before or after the mending, the way in which a being becomes a Planeswalker is the same. Whenever a sentient being is born, there is a one in one million chance of it being born with "The Spark"--that is, the Planeswalker spark. And even then, the odds of that being triggering their ascension is also one in a million.[[note]]''(Doing the math, that means a sentient being has a 1 in 1x10[--12--] chance of becoming a full-fledged Planeswalker)''[[/note]] The Spark is ignited typically in one of three ways--a near-death experience, situations of immeasurable psychological strain, or extremely deep meditation. These old-style Planeswalkers had powers comparable to most gods; they could travel to other realities with no more than a moment's concentration, they can take on any appearance they desire (though most choose to look the same as they did when they ascended), will not age or die of natural causes, no longer need to eat or sleep, and in a few cases, create their own artificial plane (and live there and practically be worshipped ''as'' gods). \\

* {{Hypocrite}}: As pointed out by the Onakke spirit in [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/veil-deceit-2014-07-02 Veil of Deceit]]: she uses "everyone dies" as a justification for her necromantic practises and callous disregard of others' lives, but everything she has done so far has been to prevent her own death.

* UnwittingPawn: The Chain Veil is connected to... something. Something dead, ancient, powerful and restless. It appears to have chosen Liliana as its vessel, and while she struggles not to be controlled, it's becoming more difficult the longer she possesses it. In addition, the mysterious "Raven Man" has some sort of sinister investment in her life.

A kor Planeswalker from the plane of Zendikar who aided fellow Planeswalkers Sorin and Ugin in sealing away the Eldrazi within her homeworld millennia ago. When Sorin returned 6000 years later to check on the weakening seal Nahiri was nowhere to be found, having vanished without a trace long ago. Turns out, she remained on Zendikar as a guardian of the Eldrazi prison and eventually cocooned herself below the Eye of Ugin. She awakened, performed some maintenance, then went to search out Sorin and Ugin. She found Sorin. His reaction to her appearance was less than amiable. Read all about her [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/story/planeswalkers/nahiri-lithomancer here]], [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/ur/lithomancer-2014-10-29 here]], and [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/uncharted-realms/stirring-slumber-2015-05-13 here]].

** TheHeart: Nahiri lived, loved and lost among her people for centuries. While [[WhoWantsToLiveForever her own immortality]] made her survive all her friends and lovers, save Ugin and Sorin, who grated on her over time, Nahiri never lost her driving optimism. She even retains fondness for Sorin and Ugin for being there as she outlived everyone else she knew.

Nicol Bolas is the oldest--and perhaps the most powerful--Planeswalker in the multiverse. He first appeared in the ''Legends'' cycle, where he battled Tetsuo Umezawa (a descendent of the ''Kamigawa'' block's protagonist, Toshiro Umezawa) for control of Madara. He reappeared in the ''Time Spiral'' block for a pair of epic Planeswalker duels against Teferi and Leshrac, and then again to serve as an antagonist in the ''Shards of Alara'' block. He's been manipulating ''Magic'''s storyline from behind the scenes ever since. Read more about him [[http://magic.wizards.com/story/planeswalkers/nicol-bolas here]].

* BadassBoast: He's very fond of making impressive evil statements, practically every time he's quoted in the flavor text of a card it's an example. His entire encounter with Ajani at the end of ''Alara Unbroken'' is basically a long boast. Trouble is, he really is that good. Best summarized by this quote: "I've survived more apocalypses than you've had ''chest colds.''"

Introduced in Zendikar as a demon who lost his Planeswalker spark, Ob Nixilis was originally a human tyrant engaged with a neverending war with the people of his homeworld. He ultimately ended the war, and brought "peace" as it were, by offering the blood of two of his loyal soldiers to summon a demon. The demon wiped out all life from his world except for Ob Nixilis. Despot with no one to rule over, his spark ignited, showing him infinite worlds to conquer. Unfortunately, conquering the multiverse isn't easy. A failure led him to seek out the power of the Chain Veil, which instead cursed him with the body of a demon. He sought out the boundless mana of Zendikar to cure him of his curse, but an unfortunate run in with Nahiri left his Planeswalker spark sealed away. However, the hedron that was sealing his spark has been removed from his skull, and his spark has been recuperating. He is ready to take out his revenge on the world that trapped him for so many centuries.

* ArcVillain: Of Battle for Zendikar. Though Ulamog and his are far more dangerous threats, as of now the Eldrazi do not seem to be motivated by any desire save for the never ending need to consume, while Ob Nixilis has been exploiting the chaos Ulamog has brought forth to finally reignite his spark.

Sorin Markov is a black-aligned vampire Planeswalker who specializes in BloodMagic, though some white has crept into his cards as of later events. He hails from Innistrad, and is an estranged Markov family member. He was one of the three Planeswalkers who created the [[SealedEvilInACan seal to trap the Eldrazi in Zendikar]]. Presently, he is busy with two things: Dealing with the resurgence of Eldrazi in Zendikar, first by working (begrudgingly) with Zendikar native Nissa Revane to reseal the Eldrazi, and later when they break free he seeks out Ugin in Tarkir; and finding out what's wrong with his home plane Innistrad, first due to the disappearance of of Avacyn, Innistrad's guardian angel [[spoiler:(his creation)]], and latter due to the resurgence of dark forces despite her return.

Elspeth Tirel is a Planeswalker who wields WhiteMagic. Born on a plane dominated by Phyrexia, she escaped after her spark ignited and roamed the worlds looking for a home. When she found Bant, she believed she'd found her true home; after Alara's Conflux, however, she felt that she no longer belonged, and left to roam the multiverse once more. [[spoiler: As of the ''Godsend'' novel, Elspeth has apparently been KilledOffForReal.]] Read more about her [[http://magic.wizards.com/story/planeswalkers/elspeth-tirel here]].

Added DiffLines:

* AlienNonInterferenceClause: Tamiyo has a self-imposed one that she stands firmly by. She is devoted to understanding and chronicling the events that shape a world, for better or worse, and will never allow herself to become directly involved in and influence their outcome.

* AboveGoodAndEvil: Tamiyo makes it very clear to Jace that she doesn't want to kill Avacyn, understanding that the angel is driven mad but is ultimately what is protecting Innistrad, and is more wanting to know what is happening to her than fixing it. Jace eventually convinces into trying.

-->'''Tamiyo''': I have recorded ten thousand stories about heroes, and a hero is merely a disaster with a point of view.

Although this is PlayedWith, as Tamiyo is still very much alive by the time Jace finds her.

* TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow: Being an ever-curious moonfolk going about to report the going-ons of other planes, her pursuit of knowledge comes with the burden of knowing things that are too dangerous to be spoken of, but too important to be forgotten.

* ParentalSubstitute: Views Nahiri as a daughter. And probably feels similarly to Avacyn. [[spoiler:This makes it all the more painful for him when the former starts destroying his home and turns the latter into such a monster Sorin has to kill her.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TailorMadePrison: Created the Helvault used to trap the demons of Innistrad. Apparently he picked up the basics from Nahiri while she was making the hedron network.

* GambitRoulette: How he defeated Lord Raximar and tricked the player character in Duels 2015 into removing his hedron, along with some CrazyPrepared and a hefty dose of bluffing. The man simply doesn't care if he lives, so his plans either end with him succeeding gloriously or dying horribly. So far, it's always been the former.
