* SternTeacher: Rakeesh's son apprenticed under her for a time, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, says that she was this.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: He constantly downplays or belittles the accomplishments of The Hero. In the original game, due to technology constraints, this would extend even after The Hero is inducted into the EOF. In the remake he will show more respect after The Hero is part of EOF and act with much more respect and even friendship.
* DumbMuscle: He's got muscles to spare, but his brain clearly doesn't get as much exercise.

* DumbMuscle: He's got muscles to spare, but his brain clearly doesn't get as much exercise.exercise as his arms.
* HatesSmallTalk: In his shop, at least, Issur only wants to talk about business, his wares, and a few other interests. Trying to question him, especially about stuff he's not interested in, will result in you getting kicked out once he gets angry enough.
* HeManWomanHater: He talks smack about the Adventurer's Guild because Uhara, a woman, is running it, and refers to other women, like Dinarzad in somewhat crude terms.




to:

* BrainsAndBrawn: She and her [[TheQuietOne always silent guard]] Franc form such a duo. Make any untoward move towards Dinarzad and it's an automatic game over as Franc cuts you down.
* QuestGiver: Serves as this for thief, as she is his contact for all thieving missions in Shapier.
* TheTease: She flirts with her customers, and she will get noticeably more flirty if The Hero is a thief.
* ThievesGuild: She dislikes guilds because of the rules and regulations, although since the guards of Shapier are quite good at catching thieves, she's the closest thing there is to one in the city.
* UnknownRival: To Issur, she's just some hot chick. Dinarzad hates him because of loutish ways, and will have you steal from Issur for no reward for herself other than seeing his House impoverished.




to:

* DeadpanSnarker: Many of his comments come out like this.
* DelightingInRiddles: His preferred method of speaking is in riddles. It's noted that few people understand his responses, which may often contain a StealthInsult.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: He seems to dislike violence, and when he hears about the caged beast he enlists the hero in trying to free it.
* TheHermit: He hangs out at the oasis, never leaving it. Regardless, people sometimes come to him, either for wisdom or to poke fun at the old hermit.
* StealthPun: Comments that he can sometimes get a date from Julanar. Presumably he means a date as in the fruit, but you can feel free to interpret it for yourself.




to:

* ArrangedMarriage: With Zayishah, the niece of the old Emir of Rasier.
* BigBrotherIsWatching: Ferrari mentions that Khaveen has orders among his men to watch The Hero at all times.
* TheDragon: To Ad Avis.
* DragonInChief: Most of Rasier assumes he is this to the new Emir, and that said Emir is just Khaveen's puppet. Only a few know or suspect the existence of Ad Avis, the true BigBad.
* FantasticRacism: He hates the Katta, and it was he who ordered them all expelled from Rasier.
* MakeAnExampleOfThem: Does this Ugarte, in order to show the Hero that Khaveen can crack down on him at any time. Ferrari confirms that Khaveen had known about Ugarte's smuggling for a long time, but only arrested him now to make a point with The Hero.
* MasterSwordsman: Downplayed in the original game, but still in evidence because The Hero is used to taking on multiple enemies, (Jackalmen, the guards of Rasier) yet Khaveen gives him a challenge one on one. In the FanRemake, this is much more in evidence, as when Khaveen [[LetsGetDangerous gets serious]] in his duel, he's an extremely lethal LightningBruiser.
* {{Sadist}}: The Emir's niece Zayishah comments that she watched Khaveen [[TortureTechnician torture men]] with the exact same expression of longing that he had when he looked at her.



* TheLancer

to:

* TheLancerTheLancer: He becomes a fast friend to The Hero, and is ready to back you up and be there for you when you need him.
* TheStrategist: He enjoys mental challenges and games of strategy.




to:

* YoungLoveVersusOldHate: Yesufu is immediately interested in Johari, from the rival Leopardmen tribe, who have very different customs and beliefs, and she eventually returns those feelings. Their fathers, on the other hand, are ready to declare war on each other.



* HotWitch: She can use magic, and she is noted in-universe for her attractiveness.

to:

* BadLiar: Rakeesh immediately sees that the Laibon is not telling the whole truth about how the Simbani acquired the Magic Drum, a magical artifact as meaningful to the Leopardmen as the Spear of Death is to the Simbani.
* GeneralRipper: The theft of the Spear of Death is a great dishonor to the Simbani, and a major blow to their pride. As a result, he will not consider peace at all until it is recovered.
* GondorCallsForAid: It's mentioned that he is calling together other Simbani tribes in an effort to band together and destroy the Leopardmen.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Both Rakeesh and Uhura note that he is behaving much more aggressively and erratically than normal. He's also willing to bend the truth, when normally the Simbani believe in complete honesty. This worries both of them.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He has this reputation from his past actions, but he certainly isn't living up to it during this crisis.
* TheWisePrince: As a young man he was this, in particular he had a reputation for speaking very little and always listening intently to the stories and lessons he would hear from the storytellers.

!The Burgomeister
Dmitri is the Burgomeister (somewhere between a Mayor and sheriff) for the town of Mordavia. He is highly suspicious of outsiders and can be abrasive to them, but he genuinely cares about people and the law, and as such his rule of the town is fair, if stern. He is also the grandson of Piotyr, a respected paladin who worked together with Erana to defeat the cultists of The Dark One, only to disappear afterward.

* VisionaryVillain: In a sense. In both games II and IV, Ad Avis is looking to potentially change the world and enslave an all powerful djinn or an EldritchAbomination to do his bidding, power that would enable him to TakeOverTheWorld, or more. In both games his partners (Khaveen and Katrina) have much more pragmatic goals in mind; Khaveen wants to conquer and rule a single city, and Katrina wants to become a DaywalkingVampire because she's terrified of being killed while she's helpless and sleeping in her coffin.

A mysterious and beautiful young woman who is the first person the hero meets in ''Shadows of Darkness''. She only appears by night, never in Mordavia proper, and has brief conversations with the hero. As it turns out, however, she is the Dark Master, a powerful sorceress and vampire who is attempting to bring the EldritchAbomination Avoozl into the world, casting eternal night over the land. [[spoiler:She developed feelings for the hero, which would prove to be her undoing as Ad Avis threatened the hero, leading to a fatal TakingTheBullet. In ''Dragon Fire'', the hero can choose to rescue her from Hades, restoring her humanity and opening up the potential for a romance. That can end in marriage unless you're a Paladin or Thief.]]

* InsistentTerminology: Not necessarily by him, but in the second game, Ferrari will take offense if you refer to him by anything but ''Signor'' Ferrari. This softens in ''Dragon Fire'', as the two of you are considered close enough to be more familiar. Of course, Ferrari is more than likely toadying to the Hero at this point, being the man of greater influence and prestige.

He can usually be found hanging out at the town gate and will give the hero (false) information about the goings-on in the valley... for a price.

* KnowledgeBroker: He acts the part in the first game, but the information he offers is available in other, less expensive ways. Bruno is only there to prevent the game from becoming {{Unwinnable}}. Furthermore, most of the information he offers is [[BlatantLies pretty useless]]: "Oh, and if you want a good time, try the Dragon's Breath!" This will reduce you to a pile of ashes in the first game. "The thieve's guild is in the graveyard, head over there at nighttime" The Graveyard at night is filled with ghosts that will either kill you, or drag you to hell on sight.
* TheMole: He appears to be a normal (if untrustworthy) thief at first, but it turns out he's part of the brigand band who joined the thief guild to spy on them.

* PungeonMaster: Possibly the biggest pun lover and maker in the entire series, which is really saying something.

* ThirdPersonPerson: "I, Magnum Opus..."

!Gort
A frankenstein-esque creation of Dr. Pretorius and Dr. Mobius, the scientists of the Silmaria Academy of Science, he was created purposely to enter the Rites of Rulership so that his masters could use him to win, proving the superiority of science over magic (and ruling the island with Gort as their puppet). For most of the game, Gort appears as little more than a mindless, silent servant of his masters... But there's more to him.
----
* EleventhHourRanger: He will join the fight against the Dragon.
* HiddenDepths: Despite by all appearances being a mindless puppet of his amoral masters, it is possible to find out during the ending that Gort is everything but... He's actually fully sentient, and even a noble, heroic individual, joining the final boss fight against the Dragon Of Doom of his own volition because it's the right thing to do, and in some circumstances [[spoiler:he will offer himself as sacrifice to weaken the dragon]].
* PuppetKing: His ultimate purpose is to serve as a front while [[spoiler:Dr. Pretorius and Dr. Mobius rule over Silmaria from the shadows.]]
* TheVoiceless: For most of the game, letting Dr. Pretorius or Dr. Mobius speak for him. He is only able to speak for himself when he decides [[spoiler:he's done being just a puppet and wants to be a true hero]].

!Minos
The patron of Elsa who paid her entry into the rites of rulership. Minos is an adviser or the former king, and a Silmarian noble who owns his own fleet and army of mercenaries which he wants to use to help Elsa win - she will have none of it. In centuries past, his family used to rule Silmaria. [[spoiler:He's the BigBad, having sponsored the murder of King Justinian and that of a few others via Bruno; he's also the one behind the return of the Dragon]].
----
* BigBad: He's the one behind the assassination, the invasion, and the breaking dragon pillars, and intends to use the events plaguing the island to blackmail them into making him king.
* BlueBlood: His family were once the undisputed rulers of Silmaria, but they lost the title at some point in the past. He still considers himself the rightful ruler of the island.
* DevilInPlainSight: Pretty much only the player and Toro figure Minos is out to no good. [[spoiler:Elsa eventually figures this out too, despite her initial brushing off Toro's concerns]]. But for most of the game, no one is remotely suspicious of Minos despite all the above.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: He picked Elsa for the rites as his candidate figuring that she had the skills to win, but he thought that she led the brigands in Spielburg, and was a rogue without scruples, like himself. [[spoiler:Elsa catches on.]]
* ObviouslyEvil: No one likes or trusts him. Toro distrusts him, Elsa dislikes being around him. No one has anything nice to say about him. He's also a {{Jerkass}} when talked to. [[spoiler:Consider that the villain had to be able to afford assassinating a king, hiring a mercenary army to invade Silmaria, & afford the entry fee to the rites of rulership... It becomes fairly obvious who the only possible candidate for BigBad really is.]]
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:Resorts to this when exposed and cornered, using his death as the final sacrifice to release the Dragon of Doom - if he can't rule Silmaria, he'd rather have it follow him in death]].

* EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep: Famous Adventurer (TM) is all he's called, including the (TM). He offers to tell you his real name a few times, but instead tells you tales of his own adventures as a means or presenting you who he is.

* {{Transflormation}}: For whatever reason, the djinni decides to give her the form of a tree.

to:

** CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when you start helping her as the melody changes, first as she rotates her crops, meaning something finally managed to get through to her. And then, when you come back after that, the same melody is played on a more happy and heartwarming chord, as if she was warmly welcoming you back. More than a gamer was moved to tears.
