* GreaterScopeParagon: A famous archmage from the past who the hero hears legends of starting with his very first adventure. She sought to create peace between different peoples and races, created many places where no violent acts could be committed, where travelers could rest in safety from nearby marauding monsters, trees with magical, healing fruit, etc. A mage hero from the FighterMageThief options in particular will develop as a hero and grow stronger in magic thanks to things she has left behind. The hero never meets or interacts with her until the very end of the fourth game, when [[spoiler:he learns that she has been a case of SealedGoodInACan, saves her, and she lives just long enough to banish an EldritchAbomination back to its own dimension before dying.]]

* TheObiWan: Especially to Mage players: he's the only wizard at the Wizard's Institute of Technocery who will sponsor you (then again, he's the only wizard who knows you well enough to ''want'' to sponsor you).

* CloudCuckoolander: He definitely has his moments. In of the few times he canonically says something concrete, in ''QuestForGloryII'', he tries to describe the smell of Victory to himself, and ends up mumbling about "sweat... no, oregano... nooo, Victory! Yea, that's the ticket, Victory!"

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Initially, Katrina almost seems to come across as the stereotypical vampire. [[spoiler:Then you start to learn just how complicated and lonely she is, and despite her actions she never loses the player's sympathy. ''QuestForGloryIV'' was released in ''1994'', ''long'' before the concept of the FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire entered mainstream popular culture.]]

* AscendedExtra: In QuestForGloryII, she is just one of many harem girls, not even having a distinct sprite. The only thing that makes her noticeable is that she is more flirty than the others. In QuestForGloryV she's a full blown love interest.

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.]]

* MoodWhiplash: Although he speaks to his own minion in a very impatient and terrorizing way, when close to the dimensional gateway, the paladin suddenly hears a gentle, inviting voice in his head that praises his accomplishments and warmly offers to teach him of honor and goodness... a voice that becomes eerily more persistent the more he tries to ignore it.
