[[folder: The Player Character]]

!!'''The Hero of Bowerstone'''

* AllYourPowersCombined: The other three Heroes each excel at one of three attributes: Strength, Skill, and [[MagicByAnyOtherName Will]]. The player character excels in all three.
* AntiHero
** PragmaticHero: As Decadent.
** UnscrupulousHero or NominalHero: As Puritan, Opportunist, or Debaser.
** VillainProtagonist/ NominalHero: As Fanatic, Demon, or Ghoul.
* BrokenBird: Sparrow gets shit on in the opening cutscene; it goes downhill from there.
* CombatPragmatist: Incapacitating enemies and then [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown kicking them while they're down]] is one of Sparrow's more common techniques. Another is to hurl them off ledges or against walls.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Sparrow's parents are never mentioned outside of a dream sequence that may or may not be real.
* CosmicPlaything: The game starts with the Hero taking a bird dropping to the head. Their life goes downhill from there.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When Sparrow becomes evil enough [[spoiler:or sacrifices their youth to Reaver (which is ironically the good choice)]], their eyes will glow red.
* GoodIsNotNice: As Decadent, Sparrow has [[ReallyGetsAround several couples]], is [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]], charges too much rent, pays for sex, and/or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking sleeps for a week]], but still a good guy.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: When Sparrow becomes good enough, their hair will lighten until it becomes blond.
* HeroicLineage: The Hero of Bowerstone is a descendant of the Hero of Oakvale from the first game.
* HeroicMime: Sparrow is the only Hero never to speak beyond grunting and laughing.
* InnocentBlueEyes: Like in the HairOfGoldHeartOfGold example, when Sparrow becomes good enough, their eyes will be bright blue.
%%* LegendaryInTheSequel
* MeaningfulName: "Sparrow," or "little sparrow," is a term of endearment.
* NoNameGiven: It is extremely unlikely that Sparrow is this character's real name.
* OlderThanTheyLook: If the Brightwood Tower sub-quest is completed.
* RagsToRoyalty: Although the player never actually sees this happen in their game, the Hero of Bowerstone becomes the King or Queen of Albion.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Like in the GlowingEyesOfDoom example, when Sparrow becomes evil enough [[spoiler:or sacrifices their youth to Reaver]], their eyes will become red.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:If they sacrifice their youth to Reaver]].


!!'''Rose''' (Gemma Boyle)

The Hero of Bowerstone's older sister.
* ActionGirl: Subverted. She tries to protect Dog from a bully, but fails utterly.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:If Sparrow wishes to revive his/her loved ones.]]
* DeathByOriginStory: Lucien shoots and kills her early in the game.
%%* GirlishPigtails
%%* PromotedToParent


%%* HeroicDog
%%* NonHumanSidekick
* TakingTheBullet: When Lucien tries to shoot the Hero, he jumps in front of the Hero and takes the shot.
* TrueCompanions: He senses the Hero's imminent return from the Spire even before Theresa, an otherwise practically omniscient {{seer}}.
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Hero.

!!'''Sister Hannah, aka Hammer''' (Julia Sawalha)

-->''I'm sorry, Father. Not that I broke my vow. I'm sorry I didn't break it sooner. I never did fit in at this place. We both knew that. And now I'm making a new vow...Lucien will die for what he did to you. I won't break this one."''

* ActionGirl: And she's very good at it.
* ActualPacifist: At first, unwillingly.
* AppropriatedAppellation: Nicknamed "Hammer," which she doesn't much like, by her fellow monks. When she renounces her vows, she takes the name for real.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: She finds the life of a monk boring and wants to go adventuring. She does so, but only after her father is killed and she breaks her vow of pacifism to avenge him. [[spoiler:At the very end, she declares she's sick and tired of violence, and just wants to be happy again.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's sweet and chatty, but when her dad gets killed...
%%* TheBigGirl
%%* BrawnHilda
* DropTheHammer: She pulled it off a statue with her bare hands. It is '''BIG'''. And made of stone.
* GentleGiant: The Hero of Strength and sized accordingly, but originally a pacifist who chafed at her vows because she wanted to do more than pray to defend the well-being of others. Even after she renounces her vow, she remains firmly on the side of the angels. (And she's always pleased to see your dog.)
%%* HardDrinkingPartyGirl
%%* TheLadette
* TheLancer: The first of the Hero of Bowerstone's allies and, by far, the most supportive one.
* LastOfHerKind: Theresa mentions in ''VideoGame/FableTheJourney'' that Hammer was the last remaining member of a ancient Heroic bloodline descended from the Hero Stone, and that it ended when Hammer died of old age without children following the end of ''Fable II''.
* PetTheDog: Literally. It's the first thing she does upon seeing him. Apparently, the adoration is mutual.
* StoutStrength: She is a very big lady with a very big hammer that she uses very well.
* WhatTheHellHero: She will call the Hero out if [[spoiler:you choose the wealth option over your family or all the people who died]].

!!'''Garth''' (Ron Glass)


* BadassBookworm: Oh yes. Garth wanders the world with a pack full of research, and is the foremost expert on the Old Kingdom and its artifacts. Oh, and he obliterated a fleet of ships with magical fire when he got "a little overzealous."
* BlackMage: Pardon the {{pun}}.
%%* CoolOldGuy
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* EthnicMagician: The Hero of Will and from Samarkand, a faintly Asian culture (except with dark-skinned people).
* HeelFaceTurn: He was working with Lucien at the start of the game. At that time, he had no idea he was on the bad guy's side; in fact, his first appearance is his walking out on Lucien because he realizes the latter is crazy.
* HeroicNeutral: After escaping the Spire, he just wants to return to his research and evade Lucien. Theresa manages to convince him to join forces with the Hero and Hammer to put a stop to Lucien permanently.
* InkSuitActor: Garth resembles his voice actor, [[BarneyMiller Ron]] [[{{Firefly}} Glass]].
* MageTower: Has one in Brightwood that was built by a Hero named Stella Malgrave who was killed in the destruction of the Heroes Guild.
* ShirtlessScene: In the Spire.
%%* TheSmartGuy
* StockSuperpowers: His Will abilities:
** BlowYouAway: Vortex.
** MindOverMatter: Force Push.
** PlayingWithFire: Inferno.
** ShockAndAwe: Shock, which he can use continuously even though the Hero can't.
* TheStoic: Unlike the more colorful Reaver and Hammer, Garth is extremely dignified and doesn't emote a whole lot (even when he's blowing things up).
* VolcanicVeins: As a practiced user of Will, his body has become covered in glowing blue lines, much more extensively than the player character will ever have.

[[folder:Villains and Allies (If Sparrow is evil)]]

!!'''Lucien Fairfax'''

* ApologeticAttacker: When he kills your older sister and then tries to shoot you dead. He does seem genuinely sorry.
* AndYourLittleDogToo: He starts by killing Rose (the Hero's only remaining family) and mortally wounding the Hero as a child. It just gets worse from there.
* BigBad: Lucien is the main villain of ''Fable II''.
** NonActionBigBad: [[spoiler:Lucien is killed rather unceremoniously in the end either by you or Reaver.]]
* CosmicRetcon: [[spoiler:Though his original intentions with the Spire may have been to bring back his dead wife and daughter, he eventually realizes that the world itself was the problem. Of course, the Hero of Bowerstone prevents him from achieving his ends.]]
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: He started out trying to revive his family with the Spire, but quickly decides to use it to create a world without death or chaos. Garth puts it best:
-->'''Garth''': Give a beggar a million gold, and he'll buy bread until he's full. But then he'll realize that there are other things than bread for sale.
%%* DisneyVillainDeath
* ShutUpHannibal: Punctuated by a gunshot.
* StartOfDarkness: Lucien was a genuinely good and competent ruler before the deaths of his wife, daughter, and sister. After that, his sanity very slowly begins to erode as his obsession with the Spire increases.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:It's implied that Theresa manipulated him into rebuilding the Spire.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Lucien starts out as this, although he gets corrupted and more insane as he continues his quest.
* VillainousBreakdown: Has an epic one:
-->[[spoiler:What? What is that? What are you doing? You think a mere trinket will save you? Do you think anything can? Stop! Think about what you're doing! I will put an end to chaos! Stop now, you fool! You insect! I order you to stop! Sleep! I command you to sleep! Sleep!]]
%%* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity
%%* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds

!!'''The Commandant'''

* {{Badass}}
** BadassBoast: "You are Number 273. That number is not randomly assigned. It is because I have broken 272 guards already. And I will break you."
* DegradedBoss: Less powerful versions of the Commandant appear leading Lucien's men after you escape from the Spire.
* TheDragon: To Lucien.
%%* DrillSergeantNasty
%%* ObviouslyEvil

!!'''Cornelius Grim'''

%%* BaldOfEvil
%%* BeardOfEvil
%%* CardCarryingVillain
%%* DarkIsEvil
* EvilPlan: Poison the waters of the Wellspring Cave, destroying the power of the Temple of Light and devastating the town of Oakfield.
%%* ObviouslyEvil
* OneWingedAngel: If the Hero sides with the Temple of Light and fights off his attack on Oakfield, Cornelius will transform himself into a Shadow to fight the Hero.


* TheBrute: For Lucien; he kidnaps villagers to be put to work building the Spire.
* DegradedBoss: Suffers this in a much greater degree than the Commandant. The Spire Soldiers at least retain a status of MiniBoss, while that the Bandit chieftain are just EliteMooks.
%%* DumbMuscle
%%* StarterVillain


%%* FragileSpeedster
%%* GetBackHereBoss
%%* OneHitKill
%%* ZeroEffortBoss


* TimeMaster: He is able to use the slow time spell, indicating he may have some Hero blood.
* UngratefulBastard: If you kill Farmer Giles for him, he and his men will still try to kill you because you learned they were cross-dressers.
%%* VillainousCrossdresser

!!'''Darius Zing'''

%%* MasterSwordsman
%%* ProfessionalKiller
* TimeMaster: Like Ripper, he can use the slow time spell.

!!'''Great Shard'''

%%* DragonInChief
%%* FinalBoss


[[folder:Other Characters and Allies (If Sparrow is good)]]


* TheBarnum: Subverted. Everything he does is on-the-level, and he helps a lot of people should the Hero aid him.
* DelusionsOfEloquence: Studied a horrendously inaccurate thesaurus to boost his vocabulary. Whoever wrote it hadn't the slightest clue what spelling was. It defined synonyms for nasty as 1: ''distrafolic'', ''respinacious'', ''aggravitising''.
%%* DroppedABridgeOnHim
* KilledOffForReal: Damn you, Reaver!
%%* NiceGuy

!!'''Farmer Giles'''

%%* BadassGrandpa
* CrusadingWidower: The bandit Ripper murdered Giles' wife shortly after he retired due to Giles knowing Ripper and his gang's [[VillainousCrossdresser secret]], causing Giles to stop at nothing to bring Ripper to justice.
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* ICallItVera: He had a powerful blunderbuss called "The Enforcer," but buried it in his cellar after he retired.
* RetiredBadass: He used to be a town guard before retiring to his farm.


%%* AntiVillain
* EliteMook: Is a Spire Guard.
%%* FatalFamilyPhoto
* MauveShirt: Bob is only a [[EliteMook Spire Guard]], but at least Sparrow knows his name.
