[[folder:''Core Rulebook'' Iconics]]
!!Amiri of the Six Bears
->'''Race:''' Human (Kellid)
->'''Class:''' Barbarian
->'''Alignment:''' ChaoticNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Realm of the Mammoth Lords

* ActionGirl: Amiri is a barbarian, and even though she came from a tribe where women StayInTheKitchen she was the best hunter and warrior in the tribe.
* {{Barbarian Hero}}ine: From the Kellid tribe of The Six Bears.
* BareYourMidriff
* TheBerserker: Even for a barbarian, Amiri has anger problems.
* {{BFS}}: A giant-sized bastard sword taken from a dead frost giant. She can only wield the thing with full effect when she's in the throes of blood rage.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: She is brave, brawny and independent, traits that are less than desirable in a [[NoWomansLand Six Bears]] tribeswoman. [[AmazonChaser Most of the rest of the world disagrees.]]
* PluckyGirl
* ShoutOut: Or maybe just an obvious art reference--her main portrait, and thus elements of her costume, are obviously based on one of Yukito Kishiro's cover illustrations for {{Gunnm}}:Last Order, featuring Sechs in his/her original female body.
* UnkemptBeauty
* UnstoppableRage: The only time she can utilise her {{BFS}} is when she goes berserk.
* WeaponOfChoice: A giant-sized bastard sword.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Her [[{{RoaringRampageOfRevenge}} slaughter]] of her [[{{StayInTheKitchen}} fellow tribesmen]] that tried to [[{{UriahGambit}} get her killed]] has marked her as a kinslayer.
* YouGoGirl: She came from a rather sexist tribe and was aware of her status as a woman; that's why she always tried to one-up her male "comrades". They were not happy about it.

!!Ezren Zefiir
->'''Race:''' Human (Taldan)
->'''Class:''' Wizard
->'''Alignment:''' NeutralGood
->'''Homeland:''' Absalom

* ClearTheirName: His father was accused of heresy. The charges were dropped, but his reputation was ruined. Ezren went through all the records trying to clear his father's name...and instead found irrefutable proof of his guilt.
* CoolOldGuy: Didn't get started adventuring until he was in his forties and is now considerably older. Still a cool guy though, and one who gets along well with his younger companions.
** Not to James Jacobs, the creative director: "Ezren, thanks to Josh Frost, who played him in my presence, has a loud and shrill voice that gives me a headache."
* HollywoodAtheist: Averted. Ezren is an atheist who is good-hearted and philosophical in nature. He enjoys friendly debate with his more religious comrades.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With all of his younger comrades.
* NayTheist: Ezren doesn't worship the gods, but that doesn't mean he doesn't believe they exist, he just has... philosophical differences with them.
* ThePhilosopher: Ezren is always willing to discuss philosophy, especially with those who hold different points of view from him.
* WizardBeard: Albeit a short and neatly trimmed one.
* WizardClassic: Staff? Check. Wizard Robes? Check. Long white hair and beard? Check. Casts Spells like a wizard? Check. Yep, Ezren's a WizardClassic

!!Harsk
->'''Race:''' Dwarf
->'''Class:''' Ranger
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Five Kings Mountains

* AntiHero: [[{{SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes}} Type III]], Harsk is a taciturn loner who atones for his part in his brother's death by slaughtering giants and making the wilds of the world safe (typically through violence).
* BadassBeard
* BigDamnHeroes: Averted, HARD. Harsk tries to be this, but he only arrives after his brother's entire party has been completely slaughtered.
* CameBackWrong: Averted, in one of the blog posts James Jacobs mentions that Harsk has a policy against Reincarnation. Probably to avoid becoming an InhumanHuman.
* DeadLittleSister: Dead older brother actually.
* HitAndRunTactics: How he avenged his brother against the giants that slew him.
* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Mostly averted. Harsk has the traditional dwarf beard and gruff nature, but bucks tradition by specializing in the crossbow and prefers the wilderness of the surface world to the mines of his kinsmin. He also shuns alcohol in favor of tea as it keeps his senses sharp.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Angainst the giants who killed his brother.
* TragicKeepsake: His brother's axe.
* WeaponOfChoice: Heavy crossbow.

!!Kyra Sief al Kiraan
->'''Race:''' Human (Keleshite)
->'''Class:''' Cleric (Sarenrae)
->'''Alignment:''' NeutralGood
->'''Homeland:''' Qadira

* ActionGirl: This is actually a religious requirement for Kyra since she is a Priestess of Sarenrae.
* ChurchMilitant: She is rarely seen in battle without both her scimitar and holy symbol in hand. Sarenrae's clerics tend to be like this.
* CombatMedic: She is seen going toe to toe with the enemy as often as healing her companions.
* DoomedHometown: The village she lived in as a girl was burned to the ground by bandits while priestess of Sarenrae attempted to defend it. This inspired her to become one herself.
* GoAndSinNoMore: Frequently invoked, as a priestess of Sarenrae, Kyra must offer mercy to those who would change their ways and tell them to GoAndSinNoMore.
* MentorOccupationalHazard: The Priestesses of Sarenrae who inspired and defended Kyra were all killed off the battle which burned her DoomedHometown
* ShootTheDog: But when the time for mercy has passed, Kyra puts villains who won't accept mercy and change their ways down like rabid dogs.
* WeaponOfChoice: Scimitar (her goddess's sacred weapon).

!!Lem
->'''Race:''' Halfling
->'''Class:''' Bard
->'''Alignment:''' ChaoticGood
->'''Homeland:''' Cheliax

* HappinessInSlavery: Averted, [[{{TearJerker}} unlike the rest of his family.]]
* LoveableRogue
* MagicMusic
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Tried to save his enslaved family by burning their master's manor. His family tried to put out the fires and bemoaned the loss of their shelter.

!!Lini
->'''Race:''' Gnome
->'''Class:''' Druid
->'''Alignment:''' TrueNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Land of the Linnorm Kings

* LoyalAnimalCompanion: Droogami, the snow leopard.
* NatureHero
* UnusualEyebrows: Apparently part of being a gnome. They look like blades of grass.
* [[{{YouGottaHaveBlueHair}} You Gotta Have Green Hair]]: Which also looks like grass.

!!Merisiel Sillvari
->'''Race:''' Elf
->'''Class:''' Rogue
->'''Alignment:''' ChaoticNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Varisia

* ActionGirl
* AesopAmnesia: Repeatedly steals from people she probably shouldn't. As Valeros asks her, "Merisiel, do you notice certain patterns in your life?"
* TheDitz: Apparently not the sharpest knife in the tool shed, which is why she keeps dozens of them on her person.
** GameplayAndStorySegregation: Statwise her intelligence is actually average, so either she merely lacks sense or is ObfuscatingStupidity. (This is a holdover from her original 3.5 statistics; Intelligence is her DumpStat, and in 3.5 clocked in at a below-average 8. In ''Pathfinder'', elves now get a bonus to Intelligence, pushing her up to an average Int score of 10.)
* KnifeNut: "To date, Merisiel hasn't met a problem that can't, in one way or another, be solved with daggers."
* RaisedByNatives: Merisiel is a Forlorn, an elf raised among humans. Though it doesn't necessarily mean that she has no social skills.
* StickyFingers: Merisiel is an impulsive thief who is constantly getting the others in trouble. After being pursued by yet another angry guardian out to reclaim its treasure, Valeros is forced to ask Merisiel if she is starting to notice "certain patterns in her life."
* StreetUrchin: She was one till she became a [[TheDrifter drifter]].
* WeaponOfChoice: Daggers. Lots of them.
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl

!!Sajan Gadadvara
->'''Race:''' Human (Vudran)
->'''Class:''' Monk
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Vudra

* BaldOfAwesome
* DeadLittleSister: In his case more like Disappeared Twin Sister.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* TheStoic
* ThemeTwinNaming: Sajan and Sajni.
* UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn: He's the son, Sajni is the daughter.
* WalkingShirtlessScene
* WeaponOfChoice: A Bich'hwa (curved temple sword).
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: He'd be executed as a deserter for setting off in search of his twin sister.

!!Seelah
->'''Race:''' Human (Garundi)
->'''Class:''' Paladin (Iomedae)
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood
->'''Homeland:''' Katapesh

* ActionGirl
** LadyOfWar
* TheAtoner: As a child, Seelah stole the paladin Acemi's helmet to pawn for food. Days later, Acemi died of a head wound. Seelah became a paladin herself to atone.
* BreastPlate: Minor example. She's covered completely, but the armour on her chest is more form-fitting than it needs to be.
* ChurchMilitant: Paladin of Iomedae.
* DrivenToSuicide[=/=]InterruptedSuicide: Tried to burn herself on Acemi's pyre, but was stopped by Acemi's allies.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Averted. She is rarely seen in a fight without it.
** Also deconstructed in her backstory: [[RealityEnsues If Seelah hadn't previously stolen her helmet, Acemi might have survived that battle]].
* KnightInShiningArmor: Played straight.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe
* ThePaladin
* ParentalAbandonment: Killed by gnolls.
* SheCleansUpNicely: She has worn a dress approximately once in all of her art. [[http://oi48.tinypic.com/295pg8p.jpg But that one time...]]
* SmiteEvil
* StreetUrchin: She was this after the deaths of her parents and until she stole a paladin's helmet.

!!Seltyiel "Lirt" Bhrostra
->'''Race:''' Half-elf
->'''Class:''' Fighter/Wizard (evoker)/Eldritch Knight (Magus in ''Ultimate Magic'')
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulEvil
->'''Homeland:''' Cheliax

* AbusiveParents: Both his fathers.
* ArchnemesisDad: His elven father is a strong candidate for this trope.
* AffablyEvil
* AntiHero
* BastardBastard: Conceived when an elven bandit-lord raped a married human noblewoman while disguised as her husband, Seltyiel's human "father" pretty much immediately realized that his son was a bastard. Subsequent treatment by his human stepfather and his elven biological father assured that Seltyiel would be a bastard in every other sense of the word as well.
* {{Bishonen}}
* CaptainErsatz: [[TheElricSaga Let's hope he doesn't get a sentient weapon with a bad attitude]]... and if he canonically takes the Bladebound Magus path, he just might.
* ChildByRape: Seltiyel's father used a BedTrick to rape his mother.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: God yes.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* MagicKnight
* TokenEvilTeammate: He's [[WordOfGod Seelah's pet project]], as it were.
* TroubledButCute
* WalkingShirtlessScene
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy

!!Seoni
->'''Race:''' Human (Varisian)
->'''Class:''' Sorcerer (tattooed sorcerer archetype)
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Varisia

* DarkSkinnedBlond: Though her hair isn't really blond.
* {{Familiar}}: A lizard.
* [[HotWitch Hot Sorceress]]
* LadyInRed
* MsFanservice
* MysteriousWaif
* PowerTattoo: She has traditional Varisian tattoos, which literally empower some of her spells.
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* VaporWear: Depending on how the artist is drawing her slinky red dress.
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl
* WitchSpecies: She's a sorceress of the Arcane bloodline, which means magic runs in her family.

!!Valeros
->'''Race:''' Human (Chelaxian)
->'''Class:''' Fighter
->'''Alignment:''' NeutralGood
->'''Homeland:''' Andoran

* {{Badass}}
** BadassLonghair
* BoisterousBruiser
* ChivalrousPervert: Valeros loves the ladies, but would never dream of pressing the issue once he's been rejected, and goes out of his way to protect the girls he's on a team with.
* TheCynic
* DualWielding: Always.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* FarmBoy: A former one. Instead of becoming a hero, however, he's become a jaded mercenary.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has several good scars on his face.
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HeroicBuild
* HiddenDepths: See ObfuscatingStupidity ''and'' KnightInSourArmour.
* HiredGuns: A former mercenary who currently works as an adventurer for hire.
* JerkassFacade: He acts like a typical crass mercenary but is actually a really good guy.
* KnightInSourArmour: Valeros is a good guy who means well and will never let someone in need down. And he has the personality of the most bitter cynic you will ever meet.
* LeeroyJenkins: Tends to charge headlong into danger. Than again, it usually seems to work out for him.
* TheNeedForMead: Out of every character presented in Pathfinder material, Valeros is the second greatest offender, right after his ''god''.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While not a genius by any means, Valeros is canonically somewhat above average in intelligence. He hides his wit and tactical ability behind a simple facade.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: What he'd like you to believe.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Part of why he had to go into the independent adventuring business.

* HelloNurse: She is described as getting this reaction quite often and is rumored to have made consorts of many powerful men.
* {{Kuudere}}: She has a cold exterior that hides an inner rage and passion.
* NayTheist: Required by law in her homeland of Rahadoum, Alahazra acknowledges that the gods exist and sees them as "allies" of a sort, but does not appear to actively worship any herself.
* NiceHat: A particularly impressive and possibly heavy example.
* PlayingWithFire: As a Flame Oracle, she definitely qualifies.
* ProphetEyes
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Because of her unasked-for gift of divine spellcasting, Alahazra was exiled from her native country, Rahadoum, which outlaws religion. Ironically, she herself is agnostic.
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: See Fanservice.

!!Alain Germande
->'''Race:''' Human (Taldan)
->'''Class:''' Cavalier
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Taldor

->'''Homeland:''' Ustalav

* TheArcher: Usually pictured with a bow or crossbow.

* BeautyMark: Yes, on a half-orc.
* BreastPlate: Minor example. She's covered completely, aside from a CleavageWindow. But her hauberk is more form-fitting than it needs to be.
* ChurchMilitant: Pharasma judges the dead. Imrijka and other inquisitors take the enemies of the faith (especially TheUndead) and render them up for judgement. Given her alignment she's about as far from a KnightTemplar as you can get though.

* SeekerArchetype
* SmiteEvil

* SinisterMinister: A priestess of Lamashtu.
* StarterVillain: She and her Goblins are this for the campaign as a whole.

->'''Class:''' Cleric (Rovagug)
->'''Alignment:''' ChaoticEvil

* AnAxeToGrind: Like all clerics of Rovagug he favours the greataxe as his WeaponOfChoice.
* ArmourIsUseless: Averted. Grundmoch is heavily armoured, and trusts that it will protect him, wading into close combat without concern.
* ChurchMilitant
* EnemyMine: Grundmoch is a ChaoticEvil cleric in service to the setting's UltimateEvil, yet he can still make a useful ally to the PC's, informing them of Zayifid's deception and providing them with a safe base of operations.
* LizardFolk: He's a troglodyte--a primitive, lizard-like, AlwaysChaoticEvil humanoid.
* {{Revenge}}: Seeks vengeance on Zayifid, who slew and then impersonated his friend.
* SinisterMinister: He's a cleric in service to an OmnicidalManiac. It would be hard to get more sinister.
* SpannerInTheWorks: When the jinni Zayifid killed and replaced the gnoll assassin Rokova, he didn't count on the gnoll's friendship with Grundmoch, who uncovered Zayifid's deception. If the PC's can befriend Grundmoch, the troglodyte is more than willing to share what he knows with them.
* VillainousFriendship: With the gnoll assassin Rokova. He's also managed to befriend a gibbering mouther he calls The Gargler.

* FourStarBadass
* GenieInABottle: He's actually a genie ''out'' of a bottle, though he can still grant wishes. Or rather, he can force mortals to wish for what ''he'' wants.
* LargeAndInCharge: He's around twenty feet tall.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: He was evil to begin with, but his obsession with the demigoddess Ymeri led him to attempt to merge with one of the Spawn of Rovagug so he would be a worthy suitor.

* PublicDomainCharacter: One of the {{Big Bad}}s of Russian and Slavic folklore.
* ShoutOut: To ''TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}'', where she ''also'' had a daughter (Iggwilv) who became a witch-queen. She's explicitly noted in ''Pathfinder'' to travel to many different worlds, and ''The Witchwar Legacy'' mentions a daughter of hers with a name (Tashanna) similar to Iggwilv's alias (Tasha).
* SorcerousOverlord: Of Irrisen, though she rarely visits.

* HauntedCastle: His palace, insofar as it's haunted by himself.
* TheNecrocracy: Type III. In Geb's kingdom, undead are often in positions of power, but the living can and sometimes do rise to the same level. There is a whole underclass of human chattel who are bred only as food for vampires and ghouls, however.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
* ScaryBlackMan
* SorcerousOverlord
* UnfinishedBusiness: Geb's spirit is bound to Golarion until he can be convinced that his ancient archnemesis, Nex, is well and truly dead.

* GodEmperor
* PathOfInspiration
* SorcerousOverlord

!!Ruthazek, the Silverback King
->'''Race:''' Human, later dire ape

%%"Compleat" is not a typo, it's the actual title. Please do not change.
* EvilOverlord
* KillerGorilla: A truly nasty example.

* SealedEvilInACan
* TheUndead

!!The Tarrasque
->'''Race:''' Unique monster
->'''Alignment:''' TrueNeutral

* BigEater: It eats ''kingdoms''.

* [[ImplacableMan Implacable Monster]]
* TheJuggernaut
* JustEatHim
* {{Kaiju}}
* NighInvulnerability: It possesses the trifecta of obscenely high hit points, damage reduction, and regeneration.
* PublicDomainCharacter: The creature derives from a medieval French legend. It was adapted into ''DungeonsAndDragons'' early on and gained a reputation as the game's most deadly (non-epic) monster.
* SingleSpecimenSpecies: It was magically created by Rovagug, so thankfully only one exists.

* ActionGirl: Amiri is a barbarian, and even though she came from a tribe where women StayInTheKitchen she was the best hunter and warrior in the tribe.
* {{Barbarian Hero}}ine: From the Kellid tribe of
The Six Bears.
* BareYourMidriff
* TheBerserker: Even for a barbarian, Amiri has anger problems.
* {{BFS}}: A giant-sized bastard sword taken from a dead frost giant. She can only wield the thing with full effect when she's in the throes
many characters of blood rage.
{{Pathfinder}}:
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: She is brave, brawny and independent, traits that are less than desirable in a [[NoWomansLand Six Bears]] tribeswoman. [[AmazonChaser Most [[Characters/PathfinderMortals Mortals (and occasionally immortals) of the rest of the world disagrees.Golarion.]]
* PluckyGirl
* ShoutOut: Or maybe just an obvious art reference--her main portrait, and thus elements of her costume, are obviously based on one of Yukito Kishiro's cover illustrations for {{Gunnm}}:Last Order, featuring Sechs in his/her original female body.
* UnkemptBeauty
* UnstoppableRage: The only time she can utilise her {{BFS}} is when she goes berserk.
* WeaponOfChoice: A giant-sized bastard sword.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Her [[{{RoaringRampageOfRevenge}} slaughter]] of her [[{{StayInTheKitchen}} fellow tribesmen]] that tried to [[{{UriahGambit}} get her killed]] has marked her as a kinslayer.
* YouGoGirl: She came from a rather sexist tribe and was aware of her status as a woman; that's why she always tried to one-up her male "comrades". They were not happy about it.

!!Ezren Zefiir
->'''Race:''' Human (Taldan)
->'''Class:''' Wizard
->'''Alignment:''' NeutralGood
->'''Homeland:''' Absalom

* ClearTheirName: His father was accused of heresy. The charges were dropped, but his reputation was ruined. Ezren went through all the records trying to clear his father's name...and instead found irrefutable proof of his guilt.
* CoolOldGuy: Didn't get started adventuring until he was in his forties and is now considerably older. Still a cool guy though, and one who gets along well with his younger companions.
** Not to James Jacobs, the creative director: "Ezren, thanks to Josh Frost, who played him in my presence, has a loud and shrill voice that gives me a headache."
* HollywoodAtheist: Averted. Ezren is an atheist who is good-hearted and philosophical in nature. He enjoys friendly debate with his more religious comrades.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With all of his younger comrades.
* NayTheist: Ezren doesn't worship the gods, but that doesn't mean he doesn't believe they exist, he just has... philosophical differences with them.
* ThePhilosopher: Ezren is always willing to discuss philosophy, especially with those who hold different points of view from him.
* WizardBeard: Albeit a short and neatly trimmed one.
* WizardClassic: Staff? Check. Wizard Robes? Check. Long white hair and beard? Check. Casts Spells like a wizard? Check. Yep, Ezren's a WizardClassic

!!Harsk
->'''Race:''' Dwarf
->'''Class:''' Ranger
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Five Kings Mountains

* AntiHero: [[{{SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes}} Type III]], Harsk is a taciturn loner who atones for his part in his brother's death by slaughtering giants and making the wilds of the world safe (typically through violence).
* BadassBeard
* BigDamnHeroes: Averted, HARD. Harsk tries to be this, but he only arrives after his brother's entire party has been completely slaughtered.
* CameBackWrong: Averted, in one of the blog posts James Jacobs mentions that Harsk has a policy against Reincarnation. Probably to avoid becoming an InhumanHuman.
* DeadLittleSister: Dead older brother actually.
* HitAndRunTactics: How he avenged his brother against the giants that slew him.
* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Mostly averted. Harsk has the traditional dwarf beard and gruff nature, but bucks tradition by specializing in the crossbow and prefers the wilderness of the surface world to the mines of his kinsmin. He also shuns alcohol in favor of tea as it keeps his senses sharp.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Angainst the giants who killed his brother.
* TragicKeepsake: His brother's axe.
* WeaponOfChoice: Heavy crossbow.

!!Kyra Sief al Kiraan
->'''Race:''' Human (Keleshite)
->'''Class:''' Cleric (Sarenrae)
->'''Alignment:''' NeutralGood
->'''Homeland:''' Qadira

* ActionGirl: This is actually a religious requirement for Kyra since she is a Priestess of Sarenrae.
* ChurchMilitant: She is rarely seen in battle without both her scimitar and holy symbol in hand. Sarenrae's clerics tend to be like this.
* CombatMedic: She is seen going toe to toe with the enemy as often as healing her companions.
* DoomedHometown: The village she lived in as a girl was burned to the ground by bandits while priestess of Sarenrae attempted to defend it. This inspired her to become one herself.
* GoAndSinNoMore: Frequently invoked, as a priestess of Sarenrae, Kyra must offer mercy to those who would change their ways and tell them to GoAndSinNoMore.
* MentorOccupationalHazard: The Priestesses of Sarenrae who inspired and defended Kyra were all killed off the battle which burned her DoomedHometown
* ShootTheDog: But when the time for mercy has passed, Kyra puts villains who won't accept mercy and change their ways down like rabid dogs.
* WeaponOfChoice: Scimitar (her goddess's sacred weapon).

!!Lem
->'''Race:''' Halfling
->'''Class:''' Bard

!!Merisiel Sillvari
->'''Race:''' Elf
->'''Class:''' Rogue
->'''Alignment:''' ChaoticNeutral
->'''Homeland:''' Varisia

* ActionGirl
* AesopAmnesia: Repeatedly steals from people she probably shouldn't. As Valeros asks her, "Merisiel, do you notice certain patterns in your life?"
* TheDitz: Apparently not the sharpest knife in the tool shed, which is why she keeps dozens of them on her person.
** GameplayAndStorySegregation: Statwise her intelligence is actually average, so either she merely lacks sense or is ObfuscatingStupidity. (This is a holdover from her original 3.5 statistics; Intelligence is her DumpStat, and in 3.5 clocked in at a below-average 8. In ''Pathfinder'', elves now get a bonus to Intelligence, pushing her up to an average Int score of 10.)
* KnifeNut: "To date, Merisiel hasn't met a problem that can't, in one way or another, be solved with daggers."
* RaisedByNatives: Merisiel is a Forlorn, an elf raised among humans. Though it doesn't necessarily mean that she has no social skills.
* StickyFingers: Merisiel is an impulsive thief who is constantly getting the others in trouble. After being pursued by yet another angry guardian out to reclaim its treasure, Valeros is forced to ask Merisiel if she is starting to notice "certain patterns in her life."
* StreetUrchin: She was one till she became a [[TheDrifter drifter]].
* WeaponOfChoice: Daggers. Lots of them.
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl

* UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn: He's the son, Sajni is the daughter.
* WalkingShirtlessScene

->'''Race:''' Human (Garundi)
->'''Class:''' Paladin (Iomedae)
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood
->'''Homeland:''' Katapesh

* ActionGirl
** LadyOfWar
* TheAtoner: As a child, Seelah stole the paladin Acemi's helmet to pawn for food. Days later, Acemi died of a head wound. Seelah became a paladin herself to atone.
* BreastPlate: Minor example. She's covered completely, but the armour on her chest is more form-fitting than it needs to be.
* ChurchMilitant: Paladin of Iomedae.
* DrivenToSuicide[=/=]InterruptedSuicide: Tried to burn herself on Acemi's pyre, but was stopped by Acemi's allies.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Averted. She is rarely seen in a fight without it.
** Also deconstructed in her backstory: [[RealityEnsues If Seelah hadn't previously stolen her helmet, Acemi might have survived that battle]].
* KnightInShiningArmor: Played straight.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe
* ThePaladin
* ParentalAbandonment: Killed by gnolls.
* SheCleansUpNicely: She has worn a dress approximately once in all of her art. [[http://oi48.tinypic.com/295pg8p.jpg But that one time...]]
* SmiteEvil
* StreetUrchin: She was this after the deaths of her parents and until she stole a paladin's helmet.

!!Seltyiel "Lirt" Bhrostra
->'''Race:''' Half-elf
->'''Class:''' Fighter/Wizard (evoker)/Eldritch Knight (Magus in ''Ultimate Magic'')
->'''Alignment:''' LawfulEvil
->'''Homeland:''' Cheliax

* AbusiveParents: Both his fathers.
* ArchnemesisDad: His elven father is a strong candidate for this trope.
* AffablyEvil
* AntiHero
* BastardBastard: Conceived when an elven bandit-lord raped a married human noblewoman while disguised as her husband, Seltyiel's human "father" pretty much immediately realized that his son was a bastard. Subsequent treatment by his human stepfather and his elven biological father assured that Seltyiel would be a bastard in every other sense of the word as well.
* {{Bishonen}}
* CaptainErsatz: [[TheElricSaga Let's hope he doesn't get a sentient weapon with a bad attitude]]... and if he canonically takes the Bladebound Magus path, he just might.
* ChildByRape: Seltiyel's father used a BedTrick to rape his mother.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: God yes.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* MagicKnight
* TokenEvilTeammate: He's [[WordOfGod Seelah's pet project]], as it were.

* [[HotWitch Hot Sorceress]]
* LadyInRed
* MsFanservice
* MysteriousWaif
* PowerTattoo: She has traditional Varisian tattoos, which literally empower some of her spells.
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* VaporWear: Depending on how the artist is drawing her slinky red dress.
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl
* WitchSpecies: She's a sorceress of the Arcane bloodline, which means magic runs in her family.

!!Valeros
->'''Race:''' Human (Chelaxian)
->'''Class:''' Fighter
->'''Alignment:''' NeutralGood
->'''Homeland:''' Andoran

* {{Badass}}
** BadassLonghair
* BoisterousBruiser
* ChivalrousPervert: Valeros loves the ladies, but would never dream of pressing the issue once he's been rejected, and goes out of his way to protect the girls he's on a team with.
* TheCynic
* DualWielding: Always.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait
* FarmBoy: A former one. Instead of becoming a hero, however, he's become a jaded mercenary.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has several good scars on his face.
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HeroicBuild
* HiddenDepths: See ObfuscatingStupidity ''and'' KnightInSourArmour.
* HiredGuns: A former mercenary who currently works as an adventurer for hire.
* JerkassFacade: He acts like a typical crass mercenary but is actually a really good guy.
* KnightInSourArmour: Valeros is a good guy who means well and will never let someone in need down. And he has the personality of the most bitter cynic you will ever meet.
* LeeroyJenkins: Tends to charge headlong into danger. Than again, it usually seems to work out for him.
* TheNeedForMead: Out of every character presented in Pathfinder material, Valeros is the second greatest offender, right after his ''god''.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While not a genius by any means, Valeros is canonically somewhat above average in intelligence. He hides his wit and tactical ability behind a simple facade.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: What he'd like you to believe.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Part of why he had to go into the independent adventuring business.

* {{Kuudere}}: She has a cold exterior that hides an inner rage and passion.

* NiceHat: A particularly impressive and possibly heavy example.
* PlayingWithFire: As a Flame Oracle, she definitely qualifies.
* ProphetEyes
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Because of her unasked-for gift of divine spellcasting, Alahazra was exiled from her native country, Rahadoum, which outlaws religion. Ironically, she herself is agnostic.

* {{Kaiju}}
* NighInvulnerability: It possesses the trifecta of obscenely high hit points, damage reduction, and regeneration.
