* SiblingTeam: The Swift Brothers, Lucien and Valen, are a pair of Elven twins who, since reconciling with each other after a long running feud, have refused to play for any team individually. As a Star Blitzer and Thrower who have been practicing together for more than a century, the pair combine into a strong team with the only downside being the cost of hiring them (only Morg ‘n’ Thorg is more expensive).

** The Troll Star Player Ripper Bolgrot underwent experimental ‘sports therapy’ that greatly elevated his intelligence. Now, despite retaining the look of the average troll, Bolgrot is easily one of the smartest players to have ever taken to the Blood Bowl pitch and has become famous for his strategic plays that combine tactical manoeuvring of his teammates with extreme violence.

* PluckyGirl: Former pig farmer turned Star Blitzer Karla von Kill has had to deal with low level sexism from Cablevision reporters, as well as major injuries caused by Minotaur that apothecaries said should have ended her career but has been determined to push onwards regardless. Karla’s attitude is was ably demonstrated during the 2492 Blood Bowl final where she attempted to stop the Mighty Zug only to be knocked out for her trouble. Karla didn’t let this stop her however and, once she regained consciousness, immediately singled out Zug again and actually managed to knock down the famously solid Blocker, something that gained her a nod of respect from Zug himself.
