This is for the various characters that show up in the original canon ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' games and [[Literature/KingsQuest Expanded Universe]]. For 2015 game, see ''Characters/KingsQuest2015'', and for fan material see ''Characters/KingsQuestFanGames''.


[[folder:The Royal Family]]
The rulers of Daventry, and the main protagonists for ([[VideoGame/KingsQuestMaskOfEternity most of]]) the games.
* BadassFamily: All of them have undergone adventures at least once.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. If their [[TheManyDeathsOfYou many possible deaths]] are an indication, their limitations are very much human. In ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder KQ5]]'' for example, Graham can't cross a desert without water, climb a mountain without the proper equipment, or travel across an ocean without a boat.
* {{Guile Hero}}es: Their adventures require them to be as keen as they are [[{{Determinator}} willful]].
* ModestRoyalty
** Graham grew up as the son of a nobleman knight, and [[OfferedTheCrown ascended the throne]] with no more intention than to serve his country. ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder KQ5]]'' would send him off to an unfamiliar land with nothing more than his new-found strength and the clothes on his back.
** Alexander [[spoiler:spent his entire childhood as a slave to Manannan]], and continues to see himself as such even after [[spoiler:discovering his true identity]].
** Rosella goes about Tamir disguised as a peasant girl, and is even dismissed as "a ragged commoner" by a bratty prince.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: That "something" being undergoing journeys of [[TheEpic epic]] proportions.
* RulingCouple: Graham and Valanice, [[spoiler:Alexander and Cassima]].
* SpinOffspring: Alexander and Rosella.
* UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn: Again, Alexander and Rosella.

The patriarch of the family. Originally started out as Sir Graham, the son of one of Daventry's knights, but a SuccessionCrisis caused King Edward to [[OfferedTheCrown offer him the crown]] after he proved his loyalty and cleverness in a quest. As a result, while Graham is wise and just in terms of actual ruling, when it comes to courtly manners he's a bit of a bumpkin who's still more at home acting like a humble squire than a blue-blooded aristocrat. Protagonist of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIQuestForTheCrown KQ1]]'', ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIRomancingTheThrone KQ2]]'', ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder KQ5]]'''. He is reimagined and fairly different character and personality in the alternate canon ''VideoGame/KingsQuest2015'', see ''Characters/KingsQuest2015''.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JoshMandel (''V'', ''VI''), Denny Delk (''VII'' (cut line)), Daran Norris (''VIII'')
* AcademicAthlete: Graham is this according to the [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novels]], Companion, and hinted at in KQ1 remake, and Hoyle I. He went to the Daventry High School, Palace School, Royal University, Knight School in Daventry. It also reveals his studies growing up in Daventry made him kind of a 'square'... some might say personality deficient, and stoic, a man of few words.
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIQuestForTheCrown''.
* BadassBeard: Sports an impressive one in [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novels]] Kingdom of Sorrow. Ok its really not all that impressive... Its just described as a 'short beard', but he does have a beard in the book. In an Easter Egg in The Dagger of Amon Ra, a painting shows him with a rather long and impressive beard.
* BenevolentBoss: By way of [[NiceToTheWaiter Nice to the Entire Castle Staff and his Subjects]]. Aside from his being genuinely nice and caring, he also reasons pragmatically that remembering birthdays and anniversaries and giving presents and good treatment and other niceties is a small price to pay for staff who are thus more motivated to do their jobs well and make ''his'' life easier.
* BadassBookworm: Graham's childhood as portrayed in the [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novels]], Hoyle I, and KQ1SCI. This is where his son gets his intelligence, and curiosity.
* ButtMonkey: In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'' and one of the [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novels]].
* BlueBlood: Primarily in the Companion, but also alluded to in some manuals. Graham is said to be the son of a nobleman, and also as a 'knight' he is of a privileged class, able to eat daily, and be secure and sound in his own bed. He generally got to hobnob with the other Lords and Ladies, Dukes and Earls of the ream. He also got to go to the apparently exclusive "Royal University".
** This is subverted in the novel trilogy in which he is portrayed as apparently grown up as a peasant and a nobody, before he traveled to, and became a knight in Daventry.
** Somewhat subverted by KQ4 manual which suggests that knights rise from lowly peasants (albeit the context is not directly about Graham, or any specific knights).
* CoolHat: His iconic feathered adventurer's cap, which he prefers to his crown.
* CoolOldGuy
* DeadpanSnarker: Some view Josh Mandel version of the character as he appears as having snarky or sassy attributes. Others just view him of being stoic and lacking any emotion at all, see below. Graham only really talks in two games KQ5 and KQ6, with the bulk of it occurring in KQ5 (where he stuck mostly to the game's original script, with very little actual adlibbing). In earlier games, his thoughts are described by the narrator, but he rarely ever comments at all (usually with little emotion at all). There is some comments from him in KQ1SCI remake during the intro and ending (which Josh Mandel was involved with writing), but very far and between, and generally generic and serious. He only has a few lines in KQ6, and again extremely serious.
* DespairEventHorizon: In ''Kings Quest III'' when Rosella was chosen as a HumanSacrifice. He went so far into HeroicBSOD [[spoiler:that it was was entirely on Alexander to fight the dragon]].
* DontCallMeSir: [[AllThereInTheManual He was the son of a mid-level nobleman knight and hadn't any higher ambitions than serving the country.]] He's really a soldier at heart.
* FlatCharacter: A bit of this in the original series, fairly emotionless, except for 'calm and friendly, and other than some snarkasm in KQ5, and the tie-in novels. His character evolution is somewhat minimal other than descent into a MadKing during KQ3 (sacrificing maidens and his own daughter to a dragon). Totally Averted in the new series canon, in which Graham is the polar opposite in personality and emotion.
* FloweryElizabethanEnglish/YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Off and on (see Hoyle I, Hoyle 4, KQ1SCI and KQ8MOE), though he knows the more contemporary dialects (North American accent) too. In KQ1SCI it's in there too, but you primarily only see it when you quit the game (a closeup of Graham pops up and states; "Dost thou truly wish to cease our adventuring?". In addition Graham says a lot of "shalls" (somewhat archaic term in contemporary North-American English, but more common in British English). In KQ8 his words aren't so much archaic (he doesn't actually say much at all), but that he speaks in a more faux British accent.
* GeniusBruiser: Though not really a stereotypical genius, per se, he does combine being "built like a linebacker" ([[ as he's often described]]) with a clever, well-educated mind and preferring to think his way through problems. In the [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novel]]ized "hint guides" he is described to be more of a fencer than a hack-and-slash swordsman who triumphs through brute strength.
* GeniusSweetTooth: See above for the "genius" part, and the ExtendedUniverse paints him as loving sweets perhaps more than his waistline would approve.
* TheGoodKing
* HappilyMarried
* HeroesWantRedheads Ok, she is really more of a brunette (but does appear red in at least once game)
* HeroicBSOD: Graham went through this when his son Alexander was kidnapped as a baby, then again when Rosetta was to be sacrificed to a dragon.
* IdealHero
* KnightInShiningArmor: Somewhat subverted by the fact that he doesn't really wear any armor (other than a certain CoversAlwaysLie), but has all the idealistic 'honorable' and 'virtuous' traits of a chivalristic knight.
* LaserGuidedKarma: In light of "Royally Screwed Up" below, it's hard to think of the heart attack he suffers after his children return home as anything other than this.
* LongLostRelative: Graham is suggested to be related to the extended 'royal family', cousins, nephews, and nieces in Kingdom of Sorrow novel. However in general Graham is treated as being a peasant (RagsToRoyalty) and originally a non-citizen to the kingdom in the novels (in both Kingdom of Sorrow and See No Weevil). The books are never clear on why Graham came to the kingdom, but Graham mentions he came to the kingdom only a little over ten years before Kingdom of Sorrow, and that he became king not long after. So if Graham is related to the royal family its only via some distant heritage (and as a non-royal cousin/nephew bastard of some sort).
** This is however subverted in the main series (or rather the novel's information is a subversion of the original idea), and even the original PCJR manual which specifically states Edward had no 'relatives'.
** The idea that he is 'peasant' also subverts the idea that he is actually the son of a nobleman as mentioned in other sources (and other sources including manuals describe Graham as a 'noble' or 'princely').
* LoveAtFirstSight / LoveBeforeFirstSight: How he met Valanice. He fell in love with her from the first moment when he saw her in the magic mirror. Again he fell in love at first physical sight of her when they met for the first time, see [[ The Stories So Far]].
** Subverted in the new series canon, as he never actually sees her in the mirror (and finds two princesses when he finally reaches the tower) in the new universe.
* NiceHat: Graham's iconic adventurer's hat.
* NoHeroToHisValet: His Prime Minister is less likely to overlook Graham's quirks and occasional lapses in judgment, and calls him out on them now and again. Graham doesn't mind, as he feels "A king needs 'nay' sayers more than he needs 'yea' sayers."
* ReluctantRuler: Perhaps a smidgeon in the novels. He sees himself as a nobody, someone without any royal/noble blood. This subverts the idea from the games and other material that not only tie him into the nobility, but also portray him as a strong, confident type.
* RoyallyScrewedUp: Agreeing to sacrifice maidens during a mid-life crisis (ya a literal crisis of a three-headed dragon attacking the kingdom). He may have attempted sacrificed up to seventeen maidens altogether (counting his own daughter). The series claims either the dragon demanded the sacrifices, it was the idea of his Prime Minister (akin to Grima Wormtongue), or it was his idea... Whatever the case his emotional state/morality/sanity is questioned after the fact (in The King's Quest Companion). Of course the full descent of his melancholy and madness is averted at the 11th hour (similar to Theoden) when his wizard prince son returns and saves the kingdom, and he avoids being destroyed by the evil dragon, or replaced in a coup... However, its one of those things that reader is told, continued to cause Graham nightmares and guilt for long after the fact. Even if his daughter and family accepted his apologies.
* StaticCharacter
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Especially in ''King's Quest V'', where [[ his snark occasionally reaches rather vicious levels]].
* TheStoic: In general this is Graham throughout the original canon, and even the Tie-In Novels to a lesser degree. In KQ5 Graham is unusually calm for someone whose family has been kidnapped... Despite all the narrator claiming he is not happy inside, and 'heavy of heart'. Apparently the WordOfGod told the actor not to show show a wide range of emotions apparently since Graham is strong, calm and collected personality type. See also FantasticallyIndifferent, and MenDontCry, and NervesOfSteel. Perhaps a little EmotionSuppression, as it was apparently too many emotions, in too short a time that nearly killed him (Heart attack in KQ4)... KQ3 suggests that Graham locked up his heart tighter, almost an EmptyShell, much in the same way he locked up the castle in grief after losing his son, and his daughter, and waited for the kingdom's ruin (perhaps cold-heartedness and madness that allowed him to sacrifice maidens and his own daughter). Most of his emtions are each an InformedAttribute...
** "I was not very happy with my performance in King's Quest V. It was the first time Roberta had directed (although she had Mark Seibert to help her) and she wanted King Graham to always be "buff" and brave. There were many times in the recording where I would try to do some real acting, and give Graham moods and emotions, but Roberta kept saying, "He's never tired, he's King Graham!" or "He's never worried, he's King Graham!". So I felt the performance did not have enough emotion in it, but people seemed to like it anyway, so maybe Roberta was on to something."-[[ Josh Mandel Interview]]
*** The character was interesting; one of the voices I'd used in the audition was this exaggeratedly buff hero, someone you could envision with a puffed-out chest and a lantern jaw, and that was the voice they wanted. During recording, there were times that, knowing what was happening in the game at various points, I'd try playing it with different emotions and shades -- fear, exhaustion, anger, and so on, emotions that I thought would make Graham more layered and more human. But they'd say, "No, no, no, Graham is ALWAYS buff," so that's the way I played it, and I tried to carry that over to the Tierra remakes as well, although I think I allowed a shade more emotion to creep into those scripts."[[ Another Interview]]
*** "King Graham was the most bizarre. I'd had a lot of theater training, such as at Carnegie-Mellon and the American Conservatory Theater, and a lot of onstage experience. But when doing King Graham, he was envisioned as very two-dimensional, so I was directed: "Graham is never tired, never frightened, never defeated. He is ALWAYS buff." So while I had lines and situations that strongly suggested various moods and emotions, I was always reined in: "Be buff, be strong, be confident, no matter what." That was odd. But hey, I got to work with Cedric, and how many people can say that?"[ Again]
** Subverted in the alternate new series canon, as Graham is portrayed as pretty much the polar opposite, easily bothered, surprised, naïve, shocked, a bit neurotic, excitable, socially awkward, and willing to shed a tear/reminisce, etc.
** To be fair its actually somewhat subverted in KQ5 by Josh's own acting itself (as he actually did inject emotions in the way he inflects his voices in various lines). At various points during the story Graham shows empathetic sadness and sometimes anger over the plight of others, he shows fear in a few instances, he shows his worry when Cedric is injured, and when he thinks he might have died (ending), and in general kindly and compassionate demeanor to those around him, and he shows anger at Mordack in several places. He also shows his snarky sense of humor at times especially in some of the comments he replies to Cedric. The only emotion he doesn't clearly show but is describe by the narrator as having is sadness for the loss of his family. Increased levels of distress while trying to explain his situation to the deaf hermit. He never shows this outwardly other than shock and worry throughout the games. "What a wonderful bluebird. It could almost make Graham happy again if it wasn't for his family.", "King Graham, heavy of heart, searches far and wide for his beloved family who've been stolen by an evil wizard."
* ThinkingOutLoud: The ''Companion'' suggests he does this a lot, if his SarcasticDevotee Prime Minster is to be believed.
* UtilityMagic: The only type of magic he's been shown to be able to cast so far, though it does include things like storms via Iconomancy. Still [[LethalHarmlessPowers extremely dangerous]] with it anyway. While Grham never got anywhere to the level his son Alex learned magic, Grham has been known to cast spells with help of artifacts, wands, and staffs since KQ1 (magic bowl), KQ2 (amulet), KQ5 (Break Enchantment, Improve Aim, Strenth, Sleep, Open Sesame, and Iconomancy). He can even attempt to use Open Sesame amd Abracadabra spells in KQ2 to open a clam (EasterEgg). While he is only a mere magic sensitive adept/amateur, his son would become a magician prodigy.
** In the new series universe Graham goes as far to jury rig the magic mirror to show his past as an aid to story telling, and make the magic bowl of stew produce Chico-chip cookies. He even successfully pulls of a teleportation spell, and some alchemy. He geeks out over spells and magic in general.
* WhatsUpKingDude: He actively encourages this.

The daughter of a prince and a miller, who was imprisoned in a tower by an evil witch and eventually rescued by Graham. As a result of her noble background, she tends to be more poised and cultured than her husband, and helps him run the castle and navigate around royal customs. Somewhat more sedate and homebody than the rest of the family, though when Rosella is lost at one point she proves to be a competent adventurer regardless while searching for her. Shares the role of protagonist of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride KQ7]]'' with her daughter Rosella.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Sheryl Bernstein (''VI''), Carol Bach y Rita (''VII'')

* FeminineWomenCanCook: In the ExpandedUniverse, she appears to be a "foodie" and is described as a very good cook.
* GirlInTheTower: Her introduction in ''[=KQ2=]''.
* HappilyMarried
* TheHighQueen: At least until ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride KQ7]]'', where she was given a bit more Character Development. She's still much more proper and regal than her ex-soldier husband.
* IWantGrandkids: Spends the first part of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride'' trying to marry Rosella off while invoking this trope, despite the fact Alexander just got married in [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow the last game...]] In the alternate universe, she finally gets her wish in ''VideoGame/KingsQuest2015'', with the introduction of Gwendolyn and Gart.
* KlatchianCoffee: She's famous for making very strong tea.
* MamaBear: Don't mess with her daughter!
* ProperLady: She is never ''unintentionally'' rude.
* RedheadInGreen Technically she's only redhead in three games, and she wears blue and violet respectively. She does wear green in a painting in KQ8.
* RescueRomance: How she met Graham.
* SilkHidingSteel: She's very much a Proper and Genteel Lady, but, see Mama Bear above.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: In one of the [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novels]], her dress collection is described as taking up ''several entire wings'' of Castle Daventry.
* WomenAreWiser: In the same novel, the fairies give her special treatment over Graham because they consider her more down to earth than her husband. She also handles social matters more adeptly.

The female half of the Royal Twins. Tends to take after her father in personality and and her mother in looks (at least according to the fans, not so much by the WordOfGod and tie-in material). While she generally is well-meaning and accepts her role as potential queen, she does have her moments of being rebellious and a bit bratty. Protagonist of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIVThePerilsOfRosella KQ4]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride KQ7]]'', but shares the latter role with her mother Valanice.
** This is subverted in the games and spinoff material in which Alexander is generally said to be much like his father in personality, and Rosella is said to take more after her mom in personality.In KQ4, Rosella is the soft-spoken protagonist, but is the reverse in KQVII. As for 'bookishness', Rosella leans towards 'Shakespeare' and music ability (but Alexander is not without his musical ability as well). Rosella is also the one who has been taught all the royal graces, and had a well-rounded and proper education (subverted in The Official Book of King's Quest which has Alexander having attended "Llewdor University").
-->'''Voiced by:''' Diana Wilson (''V''), Sheryl Bernstein (''VI''), Maureen [=McVerry=] (''VII'')

* DamselInDistress: In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman'' and ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVI'' (along with the whole family), though usually she's an ActionGirl.
* DeadpanSnarker: Very much so in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride''
* GenkiGirl: Perhaps a little bit in KQ7, and the Expanded universe. However, she comes off a bit more of a SpoiledBrat or a RebelliousPrincess. Subverted in KQ4 where she is more introverted, and reluctant to leave her father. We are told she only went on the adventure to save her dad.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: A bit more spirited than the usual type, perhaps, but she means well and overall is sweet and wholesome enough.
* HumanSacrifice: Almost became one in the third game.
* InformedAttribute: A large portion of personality in KQ4 and manuals is largely described not shown.
* RebelliousPrincess: She doesn't necessary mind all of being a princess, but she still chafes sometimes at not getting to have adventures and at the prospect of having to get married and be a mother.
* {{Red Oni|BlueOni}}: With Alexander as Blue Oni. Not quite in canon materials, see above.
* RoyalBrat: Sometimes, especially in one of the [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novels]].
* StatuesqueStunner: Is pretty tall at 5'8" or something.
* TomboyPrincess: She'd rather be romping around having adventures (not always see KQ4) than being a prim princess, and in her youth she often liked playing with sporting equipment and other boyish activities. However, this is often subverted by the fact due to some spoiled tendancies she is slightly narcissistic in the expanded universe, wanting to wear the nicest woman's clothes (her mothers), is thinks about how her developing breasts having a controlling effect over guys. Guys she would rather have serving her, than her serving them.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Her ongoing relationship with Edgar is... unusual, to say the least.

The male half of the Royal Twins. Tends to take after his father in looks and his mother in personality (at least according to the fans, not so much by the WordOfGod and tie-in material). Outwardly calm and well-mannered, but with a core of craftiness, passion, and self-doubt. Also, give him a SpellBook to work from, and he's a dangerously competent sorcerer. Protagonist of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman KQ3]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow KQ6]]''.
** This is subverted in the games and spinoff material in which Alexander is generally said to be much like his father in personality, and Rosella is said to take more after her mom in personality. In KQ6, Alexander is far from soft-spoken (but certainly shows manners), and he is more 'self-taught', only having learned how to read from Manannan. He self-taught himself magic, but shares a propensity for magic like his father (Graham has had no practice or training, but shown ability to cast a number of spells in his time). Alexander is not without his musical ability as well (like his sister). He is smart though he has had no formal education. Subverted in The Official Book of King's Quest in which Alexander was said to have been taught at the Llewdor University. Other sources vary between him being self-taught or taught by the Wizard (who could now allow any 'ignorance' around himself).
--> '''Voiced by:''' Barry T. Smith (''V''), Creator/RobbyBenson (''VI'')

* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow''.]]
* BadassBookworm: He may be a calm, quiet, pretty-boy scholar, but that doesn't stop him from being able to [[spoiler:kill a dragon, challenge Death, and hold his own for a time with a giant-ass sword almost too heavy to lift]].
* BeneathTheMask: Despite returning home to a loving family and the rank of prince, [[spoiler: he still thinks of himself as the slave Gwydion, and the "Alexander" identity as a cloak or a mask. He makes concessions to both identities by signing his papers "Alexander-Gwydion"]]
* [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]]: With Rosella as Red Oni. Not quite in the canon materials, see above.
* {{Brainy Brunet|te}}: The ExtendedUniverse paints him as being almost a straight-up medieval {{Geek}}, if more good-looking and well-mannered than average. He spends a fair bit of time teaching at the Royal University and studying magic, pens several textbooks himself, and the ''Companion'' comments that he holds for Cassima a "passion previously reserved only for books".
** Subverted in the novels (a little) in which he is treated as more of a sword fighter/martial mind (training soldiers) and fighting dark knights, than a magic user, and he consults other wizards than doing his own research or his own spells (compared to how the Companion treats him as not a sword fighter, and more of the genius wizard type). The novels underplay any thing he researched about magic in the past as just a 'smattering of magical lore' (dpesn't even mention if he used it to escape Manannan). In fact he is even told he needs to bring another magic user along... One that is a prodigy but not even allowed to cast spells technically. Alexander is surprised about his abilities, and seems to act as if he himself has not magical skill, and is in awe of the apprentice wizard.
* ChangelingFantasy: [[spoiler:The Daventry family is more caring of him than Manannan could ever be.]]
* CluelessChickMagnet: Attracts a number of admirers in the series, including a spider in ''King's Quest VI'', one of the castle scribes (''Bryanne Eridiphal''), and a princess in one of the [[TieInNovel Tie-In Novels]], but still worries Cassima won't find him attractive.
* TheComicallySerious: Though he does have a sense of humor, just an extremely dry and subtle one.
* DramaQueen: Or shall we say "Drama ''Prince''"? Alex sure acts like one in ''King's Quest VI'' [[spoiler:while [[FauxDeath feigning suicide]] in front of [[{{Shapeshifting}} Shamir Shamazel]] and the Pawn Shop Owner]].
* GeniusBruiser: Though not really a stereotypical genius, per se, he does combine being "built like a linebacker" in particular in KQ5 artwork... In Companion he is even described as being taller than his father, and having his father's facial build (again see his appearance in KQ5). In the novels he is slightly less 'genius' and a bit more bruiser as he is explain to be a bit of a sword fighter, and even helps train the recruits. Any magical skill he had in KQ3, is downplayed as a 'smattering of magical lore". He plays more of the brawn, while an apprentice wizard that joins him plays the brains.
* GentlemanSnarker: Less overtly snarky than his father, and more subtle and polite with his zingers.
* HappilyMarried: [[spoiler:Again, in ''King's Quest VI''.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: The tie-in materials expand that he has problems with low self-esteem, justifiably from being raised as a slave by a cruel master.
* InformedAttribute: A good portion of his character and personality is described by the narrator, rather than shown.
* MadeASlave: [[spoiler:Most of his life was spent this way.]]
* PrettyBoy: Described as handsome and even beautiful regularly, and has plenty of fangirls (and the occasional fanboy) both in-universe and in RealLife.
* PrinceCharming[=/=]TheWisePrince: Zigzagged, as while he does act this way sincerely and has a genuinely kind and gentlemanly personality, [[spoiler:underneath it all he still sees himself as a lowly slave]].
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Sports a nice yellow and blue one in ''King's Quest VI''.
* SeparatedAtBirth: [[spoiler:He is Rosella's long-lost fraternal twin. At the end of ''King's Quest III'', they meet each others for the first time after 17 years of separation.]]
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: His essays and interviews in the ''Companion'' have this feel to them.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: A rare unironic example. Emphasis on the tall especially, since he's described as being taller than his father who's already six feet tall to begin with.
* TroubledButCute: Some of the ExpandedUniverse stuff, though [[AvertedTrope not]] [[AngstWhatAngst present]] in the official games.
* UtilityMagic: The only type of magic he's been shown to be able to cast so far, though it does include things like inducing storms. Still [[LethalHarmlessPowers extremely dangerous]] with it anyway.
* WalkingSpoiler: His history [[spoiler:as a slave named Gwydion]] makes him this within the context ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman KQ3]]'', as [[spoiler:it isn't clear he has any kind of connection to the Daventry family until TheReveal when he actually meets them]].

Although not technically part of the Royal Family proper (he is not known to be related to Graham even distantly), he is part of the Knighthood of Daventry, much like Graham before him, and was the last mainline hero of the original series, before the series Reboot. Personality wise he might be just as [[Stoic]] as Graham.

[[folder:Love Interests]]
A [[TheFairFolk fairy prince]] who's the son of King Oberon and Queen Titania, but was kidnapped and raised for a long time by the evil witch Lolotte. It was when Rosella came to defeat Lolotte that he met her, and was subsequently rescued and returned to his family. He later met up with Rosella again in ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride KQ7]]'' where the two (eventually) marry.

Features in ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIVThePerilsOfRosella KQ4]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride KQ7]]''.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Jesse Moises (''VII'')

* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: Does this to Rosella twice, though once it was Lolotte who invoked it on his behalf and he felt guilty and eventually helped Rosella escape it, and the second time it was [[spoiler:while he was BrainwashedAndCrazy disguised as the Troll King]].
* BalefulPolymorph: Poor guy seems to keep suffering these. First into an ugly green hunchback as Lolotte's "son", then [[spoiler:as a duplicate of the Troll King]].
* BoyNextDoor: While not ''literally'' the boy next door, he nonetheless fits this personality type rather well, coming off as more of an Average Nice Guy than a blueblood even after he gets to go home.
* ChangelingFantasy
* DistressedDude: He just can't seem to stop being kidnapped, poor fellow.
* LetsGetDangerous: He may be more of a NonActionGuy than the rest of the protagonists tend to be, but he'll stand up and be brave when the time calls for it.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He has this for Rosella when they first meet... though it takes her a second (and third, and fourth...) sight to finally consider reciprocating.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: What causes him to turn against Lolotte and help Rosella the first time they meet.
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: No wings, and more human-looking than the average fairy in general, even compared to his parents.
* PrinceCharmless: At first, when he's Lolotte's weird son helping her imprison Rosella. But he has a change of heart and turns out to be GoodAllAlong, then Genesta further shows he's BeautifulAllAlong, becoming more of a PrinceCharming (albeit a more dorky one than average).
* ShrinkingViolet: Very quiet and shy to almost {{adorkable}} levels. Particularly when around Rosella, who frequently gives him a bad case of CrushBlush.
* StandardHeroReward: Actually offers ''himself'' as this to Rosella after she helps him escape Lolotte, but she turns him down because she has more pressing concerns at the time. Later on when they meet again he asks her to let him court her instead, and she accepts.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Never resolved before the original series ends. Subverted in the new series canon, with their son Gart in ''King's Quest (2015)''.

[[EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]] of the Land of the Green Isles, Cassima is first met as a servant girl in Mordack's Castle in ''King's Quest V'', where she meets the Royal Family of Daventry. Alexander [[LoveAtFirstSight is smitten]] and ''King's Quest VI'' involves him journeying to the Land of the Green Isles to see her.

--> '''Voiced by:''' Dianah Pressley (''V''), Stevie Vallance (''VI'')

* AllLovingHero: Both the ferryman and Jollo describe her this way.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Will get Graham out of jail if he [[spoiler: returns her golden locket.]]
* DamselInDistress: In ''KQV'', she's trapped by a powerful wizard. In ''KQVI'', she's trapped [[GirlInTheTower in her palace]].
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She even befriends Mordack's monsters.
* TheHighQueen: Becomes this at the end of the ''KQVI''.
* LetsGetDangerous[=/=]SilkHidingSteel: Seemingly a normal PrincessClassic, but is unafraid to use violence in her plans, and will commit such violence herself if need be.
* LoveAtFirstSight: It's implied she was as taken with Alexander from their first meeting as he was with her.
* MsFanservice: In her scullery maid outfit. In ''KQVI'', she's much more covered up.
* NeutralFemale: Cassima brilliantly subverts this in ''KQVI'' [[spoiler: if you slip her Lady Celeste's dagger]].
* PoliticallyActivePrincess: Along with her parents, Cassima often undertook diplomatic relations.
* PrettyPrincessPowerhouse: While not as action-y as Alexander, this all-loving princess is certainly not afraid to wade into the fray with a dagger.
* TheSmartGirl: Jollo and the ferryman both mention that Cassima has a good head on her shoulders, and she does think of a few clever plans.
* UnkemptBeauty: To an extent, in that Alexander falls for her even while she's trapped in Mordack's castle dressed in slave rags and her hair a mess (though she's still wearing makeup for some reason). Of course, the slave attire ''wouldn't'' put Alex off [[spoiler: seeing as the poor kid still thinks of ''himself'' as a lucky slave.]]

[[folder:Big Bads]]
An old EvilSorceror who's the SorcerousOverlord of Llewdor, and lives in a mansion overlooking the country. His nastier habits besides terrorizing Llewdor's citizens involve enslaving young boys to do his chores until they come of age and he disposes of them, and dispatching his adversaries via turning them into housecats. Brother of Mordack, an equally EvilSorceror. He shows up in ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman KQ3]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder KQ5]]''.

* AnimalMotifs: He's frequently associated with [[CatsAreMean cats]] [[spoiler:and is turned into one by one of his slaves]].
* BalefulPolymorph: Again, what he likes to do to his more powerful opponents [[spoiler:and what eventually happens to him]].
* BeardOfEvil: He has a long white beard and is very much evil, since he kidnaps babies every 17 years and terrorizes everyone in his country.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: He loves dealing with misbehaving slaves and townspeople this way, including things like [[InvoluntaryDance forcing them to do the YMCA dance]] or [[BalefulPolymorph turning them into snails temporarily]].
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Escaping from Manannan only constitutes the first half of ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIIToHeirIsHuman KQ3]]''.
* DisintegratorRay: His other favorite method of dealing with unruly slaves.
* DropInNemesis: Loves doing this to his slaves or any townspeople he feels are out of line, via liberal application of VillainTeleportation.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:One of his slaves turns him into a cat using one of his own spells.]]
* SorcerousOverlord: Noteworthy that he was less elected or born to the position and instead is just powerful enough to be able to play BigBrotherIsWatching and torment anyone who steps out of line.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Even the games themselves manage to be inconsistent about how many [=Ns=] go in his name and where. Almost guaranteed any Let's Player will doof up saying it as a result, whether accidentally or as a purposeful lampshade.
** Even ''VideoGame/KingsQuestV'' and ''VideoGame/KingsQuestIII'' (remake) have different pronunciations. Though one would most assume the former is the correct one since it's WordOfGod.
* WizardClassic: Complete with WizardBeard and RobeAndWizardHat.
* WizardNeedsFoodBadly: And if you're his slave, you'd better be quick about getting it for him.

[[InTheBlood Brother of Manannan]] and main antagonist of [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder KQ5]]. [[MonumentalTheft He steals Castle Daventry]] and shrinks the Royal Family, threatening to feed them to Cat!Manannan if they don't restore him to normal. He has his own IslandBase and plenty of [[OurMonstersAreWeird strange-looking]] {{Mooks}}.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Andy Hoyos

* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: He kidnaps Cassima [[spoiler:as part of a deal with Abdul Alhazred]] and wishes to marry her. She refuses and Mordack put her in a miserable life of slavery until she changes her mind.
* AnimalMotifs: [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent Serpents]]. Two snake statues guard the entrance of his castle, and two of his forms in the ShapeShifterShowdown include [[ScaledUp a dragon and a snake]].
* BeardOfEvil: Like his brother Manannan, he has a beard and is very evil.
* DeathByIrony: Was planning to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this on Alexander by feeding him to the wizard whom he turned into a cat. [[spoiler:Instead, he himself fell victim to this trope when he transformed into [[PlayingWithFire a wall of fire]], only to be doused by Graham's storm spell.]]
* PlayingWithFire: One of his Iconomancy spells is to transform into a wall of fire. [[spoiler:However, [[DeathOrGloryAttack being pure flame instead of a man controlling flame]], [[KillItWithWater he was easily snuffed out by a storm spell]].]] As he would burn out after burning up Graham, this could be seen as a form of TakingYouWithMe.
* ScaledUp: Though it's not his first choice, or his last, he transforms into a snake [[spoiler:after Rabbit!Graham dodged his fireballs as a dragon]]. Of course, he did not realize that [[spoiler:Graham would transform into [[AnimalJingoism a mongoose]]]].
* SorcerousOverlord: Much like his brother.
* VillainousCrush: Mordack has one toward Cassima.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Through Iconomancy. Besides snakes and fire, he can transform into a majestic dragon and... [[BigCreepyCrawlies a giant dragonfly thing]]. [[spoiler: Once Graham learns Iconomancy, it leads to ShapeShifterShowdown.]]
