[[folder: The Player Character]]
!! '''The Hero of Brightwall'''

* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning
* AProtagonistShallLeadThem
* {{Badass}}: Oh, yes.
** ActionGirl[=/=]DarkActionGirl: The Princess, depending on whether she is played as Good or Evil.
** AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: You're the King/Queen of Albion, and ''nothing'' is capable of stopping you from cutting a bloody swath through hordes of enemies. [[spoiler:Not even an EldritchAbomination and all of his children]].
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: After receiving the Gauntlets that allow you to use magic.
** BadassBack: Yes, you ''can'' win entire battles by firing your gun over your shoulder, without looking, and [[ImprobableAimingSkills hit your targets dead-on]].
*** OffhandBackhand: It's entirely possible to be kicking the crap out of the enemies in front of you with your melee weapon, then abruptly switch to your gun, fire off a shot over your shoulder to hit and kill the enemy running up behind you, and then continue to beat his buddies into submission.
** BadassBeard: Male or female, feel free to sport one.
** BadassGay[=/=][[BadassGay Badass Bi]]: If you so choose.
** BadassInCharge: When you gain the throne.
** BadassLongRobe: The Magic Suits outfits.
** BadassPrincess: If female, and overlaps with [[WarriorPrince Warrior Princess]].
** BaldOfAwesome: It's an option.
** LadyOfWar: The female Hero can either play this straight or subvert it, depending on the player's style of combat. While you can certainly hurl your enemies about with magic and shoot them from afar, you can also [[DropTheHammer bash their skulls in with a giant-ass hammer]].
** OneManArmy[=/=]OneWomanArmy
** WarriorPrince/[[WarriorPrince Warrior Princess]]
** BadassLongcoat: There are a number of outfits that involve these.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: [[spoiler:Wander through a Demon Door. Find yourself on a moon-like planet whose atmosphere changes with the press of a switch. Fail to die.]]
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The Hero's definitely less than enthused by the realities of being King/Queen, judging by the way s/he slouches on the throne. The beginning of ''[[{{DLC}} Traitor's Keep]]'' sees the Hero only being jerked out of his/her boredom with affairs of the state by ''an assassination attempt''. Before that, s/he was falling asleep.
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler:Do '''''not''''' mess with the Hero's dog]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Every now and then.
* DropTheHammer: One of the two choices of melee weapons.
* ElementalPowers: As granted by the various Gauntlets the Hero can obtain over the course of the story.
** AnIcePerson: The Ice Storm Gauntlet.
** BlowYouAway: The Vortex Gauntlet, with Force Push being a lesser example.
** KillItWithFire: The Fireball Gauntlet.
** ShockAndAwe: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Shock]] Gauntlet.
** StormOfBlades: The Blade Gauntlet.
* HeroicLineage
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Anyone who can win a gunfight without even bothering to look at their targets most certainly qualifies.
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: In ''The Masquerade'' quest, the female Hero is wearing a PimpedOutDress as she mows downs waves of enemies. And whether the Hero is male or female, you can feel free to kick ass in all kinds of fancy skirts and dresses.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: First Prince/Princess, then Hero (of Brightwall), and finally King/Queen.
* LargeAndInCharge: One of the tallest people in Albion.
* NoBadassToHisValet: Whether you're a pillar of moral strength or a murdering monster, Jasper will never stop [[ServileSnarker snarking the hell out of you]].
* PrinceCharming: The Male Hero.
* PowerGivesYouWings: [[GoodWingsEvilWings Angelic wings for a good hero, demonic wings for an evil hero.]]
* PowerGlows: If you use your magic enough, any tattoos you apply won't be black anymore. They'll be glowing bright blue.
* TheQuietOne: His/her dialogue is fully voiced, and this trope is well averted during the prologue, but for some reason the player character goes all quiet after that and very, very rarely speaks for the rest of the game.
* RebelLeader: The plot of the first act.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Once again, you.
* SexyWalk: When the Princess walks normally, she swivels her hips quite a bit.
* SilentProtagonist: The first protagonist in ''Fable'' to completely avert this. He or she does not speak often, however, and still mostly makes odd grunting noises when preforming expressions.
* StatuesqueStunner: The Princess, provided she's attractive, since she's taller than almost everyone else in the game.
* SwordAndGun: If the player chooses; it could be Hammer and Gun.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl[=/=]HugeGuyTinyGirl: The Hero's always taller than the spouse he/she chooses. As well as pretty much everyone else in the Kingdom.
* TookALevelInBadass: After escaping the castle and gaining the Gauntlets, which officially cement you as being a Hero.
* WholeCostumeReference: The Military Suit is similar to [[{{Sharpe}} Richard Sharpe]].
** You can also have other types of costume reference with some clothes and dye combinations.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Allies]]
!! '''Elise/Elliot'''
* AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder: [[spoiler:Assuming they survive the first ten minutes of the game, in the short time you're gone, they meet and fall in love with the proprietor of a homeless shelter/orphanage because they believed you were never coming back]].
* [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl Always Save the]] LoveInterest: Can be subverted or played straight, depending on whether or not [[spoiler:you choose to save Elise/Elliot or the protestors at the very beginning of the game]].
* BadDreams: If you [[spoiler:marry Elise/Elliot]], s/he will say that s/he still has nightmares about [[spoiler:the last day in the castle, and believes s/he always will]].
* DamselInDistress[=/=]DistressedDude: At the very beginning of the game, [[spoiler:her/his life is in your hands. If you choose to save her/him, you have to rescue her/him ''again'' later, when s/he is kidnapped by Nigel Ferret's gang]].
* [[spoiler:DisposableFiance: Can be played straight or subverted. If you tell Elise/Elliot to come back to you, then they break up with Laszlo/Linda to marry you. If you stay silent or tell them to stay with Laszlo/Linda, they choose to get married to their current fiancÚ/e]].
* GreenEyedMonster: Elliot shows hints of this if [[spoiler:you marry him]]. Though, oddly, he does this if you [[spoiler:give money to a beggar]], yet not if you [[spoiler:''passionately kiss an unmarried lover in front of him'']].
-->'''Elliot:''' [[BlatantLies I'm not a jealous man]], but [[spoiler:stay away from my wife]].
-->'''Elliot:''' (''to the Heroine'') You're not [[spoiler:putting what we have in jeopardy]], are you?
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: With the Hero or with Laszlo/Linda, if they survive. However, if they decide to marry Laszlo/Linda, their dialogue before they leave strongly implies that [[TheOneThatGotAway they never quite got over you]]]].
* InterClassRomance: Subverted in that no one cares, but Elise/Elliot actually isn't a noble despite being close friends with [[spoiler:and possibly the spouse of]] the prince/ss. The character description lists her/him as "Middle Class".
* [[spoiler:OldFlame: The Hero is this if they meet Elise/Elliot in the sewers. It can either turn into a DisposableFiance situation or a possible case of TheOneThatGotAway]].
* TheOneThatGotAway: [[spoiler:Implied to be their feelings toward you if you tell them to marry Laszlo/Linda]].
* PurelyAestheticGender: Save for a few sentences in the beginning, Elise and Elliot have identical dialogue.
* RapunzelHair: Elise's hair is ''very'' long. And those curls ''bounce''.
* [[spoiler:RedStringOfFate: If you marry her/him, Elise/Elliot will occasionally make comments about how s/he thinks that s/he and the Hero were always meant to be together, and it was fate that brought them back together again]].
* SadisticChoice: [[spoiler:When the Hero confronts Logan about his intention to kill a group of protesters, Logan forces you to choose between Elise/Elliot and the protesters. This is one of the few choices which has no moral ramifications]].
** And just to drive the point home, [[spoiler:Logan will have both the protesters ''and'' Elise/Elliot killed if you take too long to choose between them]].
* [[spoiler:SecondLove: With Laszlo/Linda]].
** [[spoiler:[[FirstGirlWins First Guy/Girl Wins]]: The above can be subverted if you tell Elise/Elliot to dump their fiancÚ/e and come back to you]].
* SatelliteLoveInterest: They're sympathetic to the plight of the people in Bowerstone and very fond of you, but other than that, there isn't much to their personality.
* StayInTheKitchen: Literally, you can find Elise in the kitchen [[spoiler:if you marry her and after you move to the castle]].
** Of course, Elliot is always in the kitchen as well.
* SurvivorGuilt: If you choose [[spoiler:to allow Logan to execute the protestors in exchange for sparing Elise/Elliot, s/he expresses guilt when you meet again over both the fact that s/he survived ''and'' the fact that s/he felt ''happy'' to know that s/he was going to survive, even through the horror of watching the protestors dragged away to be killed]].
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend[=/=]UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Depending on the choices the player makes.

!!'''Sir Walter Beck''' (Bernard Hill)
* [[spoiler:ApologeticAttacker: While [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by [[BigBad The Crawler]]. He encourages the player, "Don't hold back!" when you attack him.]]
* BadassBeard
* BadassGrandpa: He served under your Hero parent around fifty years ago.
* {{Catchphrase}}: He has a tendency toward saying or shouting the word "balls" when frustrated.
-->'''Beck:''' Now, if you indulge me... '''''[[SkywardScream BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!]]'''''
* {{Claustrophobia}}: Walter suffers from this. It becomes a plot point later on when his debilitating fear [[spoiler:leads him to become a target for The Crawler]]. It stems from being trapped inside a pitch black cave for three days with no hope of rescue in his youth.
* CoolOldGuy
* DeadpanSnarker: In about the same way as [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Alistair]] come about fifty years.
* GenreBlindness: [[spoiler:Hey look, a swirling purple seal on a pit in the middle of an ominous cave surrounded by skeletons. I know! Let's pick up a book full of arcane symbols and read from it!]] Though, in his defense, [[spoiler:there was no way either of them could have expected what they ran into in that cave. Plus it was kinda the only way out, so even if he did, he more or less didn't have a choice]].
* TheLancer: Although he doesn't particularly serve as your foil, he is your eternal sidekick and mentor.
* TheMentor
** [[spoiler:MentorOccupationalHazard: Tragically. And even worse, you have to kill him ''yourself''.]]
* TheObiWan: Sometimes he edges by EccentricMentor territory.
* SwordAndGun
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Caves]]: Poor Walter keeps running into them. It's funny at first. [[spoiler: [[FunnyAneurysmMoment Then you learn]] [[IronWoobie why he's afraid of them.]]]]
** If you're wondering exactly why, [[spoiler:during the war, he and his unit sought shelter in a cave to hide from the enemy's army. The enemy did not follow them; they blasted the entrance, leaving him and his two surviving men trapped in absolute darkness for three days without food or hope of rescue]].

!!'''Jasper''' (Creator/JohnCleese)
* CoolOldGuy
* DeadpanSnarker: Well, He ''is'' voiced by Creator/JohnCleese.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Alfred Pennyworth]], minus the military background.
* InkSuitActor: His facial features resemble Cleese's very closely.
* TheJeeves
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Jasper will continue [[YesMan serve]] the Hero no matter how many villagers s/he kills, how many unjust decisions s/he makes as a tyrannical ruler...[[FelonyMisdemeanor and no matter how ridiculously they dress]].
* NonActionGuy: He cowers (very gracefully, Walter adds) in the one instance you see him in battle, and keeps well away safe in the Sanctuary as soon as he arrives.
* ServileSnarker: Very politely, but still, he'll make his opinion of silly choices on clothing or hair known.
* UndyingLoyalty: "You currently have the support of two friends. Jasper, who will serve you forever..."

!! '''Samuel'''
Samuel is the head of the Brightwall Academy.
----
* {{Bookworm}}
* UnusualEuphemism: Unless he belongs to some cult that worships libraries.

----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard
** BadassGrandpa
* BloodKnight: He enjoyed [[spoiler:taking part in the battle of Bowerstone]].
* CoolOldGuy

* SmallNameBigEgo: He may be the leader of the Dwellers and all, but he isn't the biggest name in Albion.

----

* LoveableRogue: In his past.
* TheMusketeer
* NumberTwo: To Major Swift.
* WalkingTheEarth: He tells the Hero of Brightwall he will be doing this at [[spoiler:Walter's funeral]], feeling that military life is no longer for him. The ExpandedUniverse novel ''Blood Ties'' follows him on the begining of his journey.
* WhiteSheep: He's the only brother in his family not willingly a criminal.

!!'''Page'''
* ActionGirl
* FingerlessGloves
* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: [[spoiler:She's the only person who speaks out against executing Logan during his trial since she wants to send out a message that you're a different kind of monarch.]]
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: During ''The Masquerade'' quest, she accompanies you while wearing an aristocratic masquerade suit.
* RebelLeader: Until the Hero comes along, though she remains in charge of operations in Bowerstone.

Boulder is Sabine's bodyguard.
----

* GentleGiant
* TheVoiceless: The only noises he makes are some grunts.

!!'''Hobson'''
The player's personal adviser/butler upon becoming the ruler of Albion. His job is to remind them of their Royal Agendas for the day.
----
* MiserAdvisor: While he's completely loyal to the player, Hobson almost always tries to urge the player to take choices that puts wealth above all else. While it's understandable considering the situation of the kingdom, he goes beyond that and encourages the ruler to just be a greedy bastard. He's nothing compared to Reaver, however.

!!'''Mark, Jim, and Ben'''
Three novice wizards who enjoy playing [[DungeonsAndDragons Hallows and Hobbes]] and invite the Hero to play a game with them, causing the Hero to shrink down and enter the game.
----
* OnlySaneMan: Mark constantly acts as the voice of reason when Jim and Ben start bickering.
* RedOniBlueOni: Jim is the red to Ben's blue.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Villains]]
!!'''Logan''' (Michael Fassbender)
* AloofBigBrother: There's never any indication that you ever got along with him as your brother or that he ever treated you as anything other than an inferior nuisance. [[spoiler:His opinion dramatically changes when you overthrow him.]]
** Elliot/Elise does mention in the beginning of the game that he has undergone a dramatic personality shift within the past four years, hinting that Logan may have actually been a fairly decent brother before [[spoiler:the Crawler attacked him in Aurora.]] The stress of ruling a kingdom likely plays into it as well.
* BeardOfEvil: Or rather, Soul Patch of Evil.
* TheCaligula: [[spoiler:Deconstructed, he only acts tyrannical because he needs to raise money to save Albion from the Crawler.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity: Should you decide not to spare him]].
* FascistButInefficient: [[spoiler:Fear of the Crawler and trying to build an army]] doesn't explain some of the more inexplicably evil things he does, or why he didn't ''stop'' doing them once it became obvious he was driving the economy into the ground. It seems that regardless of whether or not he's actually evil, Logan is at least an incompetent ruler.
* KarmaHoudini: If you [[spoiler:choose to spare him]].
* [[spoiler:KnightTemplar]]
* LeanAndMean: Noticeably thinner and taller than most characters in the game.
* NonActionBigBad: [[spoiler:Once you storm his throne room, he surrenders with surprising grace.]]
* PromotionToParent: Of course, he never seems to behave that way to you, and instead lets Walter and Jasper handle all of your business.
* StartOfDarkness: Logan [[spoiler:lost an army to and was nearly killed by the Crawler, and then told it was coming for Albion]].
* StealthMentor: [[spoiler:After the revolution, he tells you that you've grown to be the Hero he always wanted you to be.]]
* [[BeardOfEvil Soul Patch Of Evil]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist

!! '''Barry Hatch''' (Jonathan Ross)
* DeadpanSnarker
* ElmuhFuddSyndwome
* [[MuggingTheMonster Molesting the Monster]]: [[spoiler: He sexually harasses a woman who turns out to be a balverine. This ends poorly for him.]]

!![[spoiler: '''The Crawler''']]

[[spoiler: An EldritchAbomination that ravaged the lands of Aurora, a civilisation across the sea from Albion. It desires to spread darkness and death to all corners of the world and its gaze is now fixed upon the hero's homeland. Its origins in Fable III are a mystery, as are its motives beyond destroying all life. In Fable: The Journey is revealed the creature of the Void and agent of [[BiggerBad The Corrupter]]. Its goal was to pave the way for its masters return from the Void.]]

* [[spoiler: BiggerBad: In regards to Logan in Fable III. Though ''Fable: The Journey'' reveals that he is an agent of the series' BiggerBad the Corruption and was merely a taste of things to come.]]
* [[spoiler: BreakThemByTalking: Whenever it's about, every word from his mouth is meant to drive the hero and his/her allies over the DespairEventHorizon. And he has a '''lot'''to say.]]
* [[spoiler: CastingAShadow]]
* [[spoiler: DemonicPossession[=/=]GrandTheftMe: Poor Walter.]]
* [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination: Defies the laws of physics, can teleport at will, can warp reality, and has complete control over darkness. Think a far less cute version of TheHeartless, and you have it.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilLaugh: He uses a spine-chilling, always soft chuckle, proving most definitely that it's not a DeadHorseTrope.]]
* [[spoiler:GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: He's clearly sentient, but no one knows who or what he is, why he's in Aurora, why he's fixated on Albion... he's just a great big evil thing coming your way, and no explanation is ever provided until FableTheJourney reveals his origins. He is part of the corruption that sprung from the illness Sir William Black recieved during his first encounter with Jack of Blades. He is in fact an agent of The Corrupter.]]
* [[spoiler: MookMaker]]
* [[spoiler: OmnicidalManiac]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* [[spoiler: WellIntentionedExtremist: He claims that destroying Aurora and Albion in the most horrific and cruel way possible is a good thing. Though he could just sneering at the hero.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Traitor's Keep DLC]]
!!'''Commander Milton'''
* [[spoiler:AGodAmI]]
* [[spoiler:AndYourLittleDogToo: Milton decided it to be a good idea to throw a fireball at your dog while having you tied to an electric chair. Bad move. And unlike ''Fable II'', your dog survives this attack.]]
* [[spoiler:BigBad: Of the ''Traitors Keep'' DLC. Turns out he's a disciple of General Turner, and took up his cause when he died.]]
* [[spoiler:BigBadFriend: As mentioned below, all the guidance and help he gave was his means of studying you so as to imitate you better.]]
* [[spoiler:GenderBender[=/=]SuperGenderBender: If your Hero is female, Milton will swap genders when he assumes your form, including voice and gaining power.]]
* [[spoiler:MirrorBoss[=/=]EvilTwin[=/=]DarkIsEvil[=/=]OneWingedAngel: When transforming himself into a replica of The Hero of Brightwall - with the evil Hero's dark, fiery wings.]]
* [[spoiler:KillAndReplace: His ultimate plan: use Mary's essence-extracting machine to draw out your Heroic power, transform himself into a copy of you and then kill you so he can take your place and topple the monarchy from within. All the guidance and help he gave was his means of studying you so as to imitate you better.]]
* WalkingSpoiler

!!'''General Solomon Turner'''
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Subverted. He's been dead for months by the events of Traitor's Keep.]]
* [[spoiler:PosthumousCharacter]]
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified: He maintains early on that he has no desire to rule, and that the military should simply supervise the democratic process.
** Unless that's his way of saying it will be a military dictatorship. Puppet governments and all that. Considering his diary entries advocate the military's involvement so heavily, it's likely this is true, although he sincerely seems not to see it that way.

!!'''Professor Ernest Faraday'''
* [[spoiler:{{Expy}}: Faraday's armoured suit and Logan wanting to use his inventions for war may be a reference to Iron Man.]]
* EvilGenius: [[spoiler:Subverted - he never wanted his creations to become war machines.]]
* [[MotherlyScientist Fatherly Scientist]]: He loves his robots so much he'll go to the mat for them in a suit of PoweredArmor, despite being quite elderly. His statue even depicts him holding a robot in his lap like a grandfather with a small child.
* PoweredArmor: His "Industrial Knight" armor.
* MadScientist: In the form of an army of robots and ''single-handedly inventing Albion's industrial age'', somehow.
** [[spoiler:ReluctantMadScientist: But he ultimately handed over the reigns of his company to Reaver and retired to build what amounted to an amusement park. His creations weren't meant to be weapons - all he ever wanted was to make everyone happy and safe, robots included.]]
* ShoutOut: To chemist and pioneer of electricity Michael Faraday.
* [[spoiler:TechnologicalPacifist]]

!! '''"Witchcraft" Mary Godwin'''
* BioAugmentation: Her essence-extracting machines and the poisonous balverines she created.
* FreudianExcuse: Her grandfather's estate maintained a massive menagerie, which contained balverines. Commander Milton surmises she grew up thinking these were beautiful.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Mary hates humanity, seeing them as a blight on the natural, ancient order. Her greatest desire is to join "the pure" (balverines, hollow men, and hobbes).
* MadScientist: Of a more biology-oriented sort than Professor Faraday, but it still involves steam, machines, beakers, and weird chemicals.
* MisanthropeSupreme: She hates humans so much, she doesn't even want to ''be'' one; Turner roped her in by implying his plans would help her KillAllHumans.
* MotherlyScientist: Just a little. Why else would she build a bubble and light machine for her hobbes to play with?
* PlayingWithSyringes: The other aspect of her mad science, though since Albion predates syringes she just has to make do.
* ShootTheDog: [[spoiler:She's genuinely sorry she has to murder a hobbe, a balverine and a hollow man so she can go OneWingedAngel, but does it anyway - though not without a little sadness.]]
* TechnicolorScience: Complete with disco lights!
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Once defeated, she reverts to humanity and ''hates it'', tearfully demanding death over life as a human.]]
* [[spoiler:VoluntaryShapeshifting]]
