[[folder:EMPIRE PLAYERS]]
![[spoiler:Disbanded / New]] Noob Guild
The worst guild of ''Horizon'' in Season 1, which gets a little better but keeps a quite bad reputation later on.

!!Gaea [[spoiler:> Gaëa]]
[[quoteright:165:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sans_titre-3_9159.jpg]]
->Class : Summoner [[spoiler:> Archer]]
->Guild position : Nuker [[spoiler:> Distance DPS]]
->Reroll: Gaëa, archer [[spoiler:that becomes her Empire main after her summoner joins the Coalition]]
->Real life name : Gabrielle Jolivet


-->Played by : Anne-Laure Jarnet (Season 1, 2, 4 and 5 credits)/ Gabrielle Jolivet (Season 3 credits)

Latest addition to the guild for the two first seasons, she joined only because ''Horizon'' cannot be played solo. She's set on cumulating as many credits (game currency) as she can, to the point that looting dead enemies behind her guildmate's backs, charming her way out of contributing to the guild's common funds, refusing to engage in a battle under the pretext that expensive repairs are sure to be needed, scamming and blackmailing are not beyond her. [[spoiler:Also check Walking Spoiler in Gaea worshipper's guild section.]]

----
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the novels and series, Tenshirock decided that all/most of the guild was off the hook during novel / Season 3 due to them indirectly serving his cause. In the comic, Gaea negociated that immunity as part of their business relationship, while the extent to which she cares about her guildmates is usually ambiguous. The only part of the deal that doesn't make the trope too strong is Omega Zell's non-inclusion.
* AlmightyJanitor: Her blackmail has given her leverage on people that should normally be above her in the pecking order.
* ArbitrarilyLargeBankAccount: A possible inversion or aversion, best summed up by paraphrasing Ivy's LampshadeHanging from Season 5:
--> '''Ivy:''' What do you want to get yourself that's so expensive? Because whatever you're "saving up" for, you should be able to afford it by now.
* TheBeastmaster: In the novels and comic. Two creatures have been seen : a giant pig-like creature and a bird that she actually stole.
* {{Blackmail}}: Omega Zell, Fantöm, [[spoiler:''Horizon's'' creators]] for more or less mild cases.
* BrainyBrunette: A little less of a brunette in the comics.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: It took a few episodes for her way of managing credits and selfishness to be even hinted at.
* ComplainingAboutThingsYouHaventPaidFor: Her neighbor's Wifi in Season 2.
* [[ConMan Con Woman]]
* CowerPower: People she pulled this on include, Tenshirock, Golgotha, Sparadrap and later Meuhmeuh.
* DirtyCoward: One of the few female cases.[[spoiler: Reaching level 100, however, stimulates her to willingly challenge Omega Zell to a duel]]
* DoublePlay: Has an archer on a different account. [[spoiler:Becomes quite literal when she keeps said archer active in the Empire while her summoner joined the Coalition]].
* DreamSequence: Of Fantöm and Omega Zell having a romantic moment. The way it's depicted is quite unrealistic since Omega Zell tends to go almost mute in the presence of Fantöm who either ignores him or looks at him as if he's crazy. [[spoiler: The dream ended up being semi-accurate : it had Omega Zell promise to still love Fantöm despite the aftermath of the Wham Episode, help him clear his name, and assist him in getting back to level 100. Omega Zell turned out to be so superficial that he only gets in "mute mode" in front of a level 100 and part of a Prestige Class Fantöm, making him perfectly capable of talking normally to Elementalist!Fantöm while he was getting levelled up by the Noob guild]].
** IWasHavingSuchANiceDream: She was quite mad when she had to wake up from it.
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]]: [[spoiler:Some fans also speculate that she was [=TheMole=] since the beginning of the series.]]
** [[spoiler:FaceHeelRevolvingDoor]]
* FreudianExcuse: She's a StarvingStudent in real life, explaining her GoldFever in game (according to Tenshirock, at least).
* GenderBlenderName: Possibly not as intentional as for Morgan/Omega Zell, but her real name is homophone to the masculine "Gabriel".
* GenreSavvy:
** In the webseries and novels, [[spoiler:when Nazetrîme first showed up in her Order avatar, the first thing she did was look for an anagram in her OnlineAlias.]]
** When she has to fight against [[spoiler:Master Zen]] in the Season 3 finale, she refuses Couette and Ivy's help on the grounds that ItsPersonal since [[spoiler:he broke into her appartement and framed her by posting the video tha caused the WhamEpisode from her computer]]. She however doesn't let them leave the scene because she's aware she may need help later.
* GoldFever
* IAmNotLeftHanded: If she can help it, she'll avoid [[spoiler:using any of the powerful items she owns]]. Make her angry enough to want to fight against you and [[spoiler:she'll use anything that can help her win and she will be mad at you for forcing her into it, further motivating her to defeat you]].
* ItsAllAboutMe
* ItAmusedMe: It seems like only one other thing besides money can make her do someting: the opportunity to humiliate Omega Zell. Even better if she can to both at the same time.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk:
** She's outraged when [[spoiler:Roxana kills Sparadrap's pets]]... because [[spoiler:she was planning to steal them from him and sell them.]]
** That side of her shows up in the comic also, where she gets Sparadrap motivated during the Fluxball game by promising him to buy him a smourbiff for each time he scores a point. She however intends to buy the pets with the already virtually non-existent guild's funds.
** In the fourth novel, Sparadrap asks her if she actually considers the other members of the guild friends after [[spoiler:she gets a Face Heel Revoving Door on her record]] and thinks her positive answer is sincere. But it seems like she doesn't consider this incompatible whith treating the guild common fund as a free money reserve.
* KarmaHoudini
* KillSteal: She's not above it if it can help her win credits or experience.
* LadyOfBlackMagic: Sports the attitude from time to time.
* ManipulativeBastard
* MisplacedSorrow: The first entry on JerkWithAHeartOfJerk says it all.
* MoneyFetish: {{Greed}} is with no doubt her deadly sin.
* NeverMyFault: Frequently complains about the guild being out of money despite never contributing to its fund.
* NinjaLooting
* NotMeThisTime:[[spoiler:With all the scams that she's orchestrated, everybody, Arthéon included, first had no doubt that she was the one who posted the video that caused the Wham Episode to happen, fact that it ended on her blog not really helping. Lucky for her, she had a solid alibi and the player who actually did it insisted on gloating about it despite knowing she frequently records things happening in-game]].
* [[OffScreenVillainy Off-Screen Scamming]]: The blackmail and scams she pulled on Fantöm, Omega Zell or Sparadrap (novel and comics) are implied to be the tip of an enormous iceberg. She's seen scamming random passer-bys two or three times in the comic, but that's about it.
* PeoplePuppets: She gets the ability to control avatars from the same faction for ten seconds in episode 2 of Season 4 and the possibility extends to avatars from the other factions in episode 11 [[spoiler: as part of her level 100 abilities]]. The fact her victims can still complain about it is justified by the fact the spell has no reason to cut off their microphones.
** PersonalityPowers: She's a ManipulativeBastard and can literally manipulate other avatars.
** InstantExpert: She manages to force Ivy into using her kamikaze ability ''right after getting the ability to use the spell'' (if it's not that trope, then it's CrazyPrepared). [[spoiler:Making Omega Zell punch himself in the face and run into walls multiple times]] makes more sense both because it's probably something she was dreaming of doing after realising the ability's potential (and would have hence done her homework in perspective of the opportunity showing up) and [[spoiler:she had control of his avatar during part of Mortegarde dungeon]].
* PlayingTheVictimCard: Unless there's another name for her doing her PuppyDogEyes while telling a sob story that is MetaphoricallyTrue at best.
* PuppyDogEyes
* ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful: Her PuppyDogEyes are meant to exploit a variation of this.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Tenshirock was great help the two times Games Masters got on her case.
* TheScrooge: Maximal hoarding of both credits and expensive items, yet acts a if she were in PerpetualPoverty.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Before Golgotha's and Couette's arrival.
** Later, Ivy changes it in TwoGirlsToATeam.
** With Couette's official membership, the guild is technically a GenderEqualEnsemble in later episodes [[spoiler: ... before people start leaving in Season 4, at least]].
* SummonMagic
* SquishyWizard: Probably true of any nuker and healer in the series, but she gets special mention for using it as semi-legitimate excuse to have hiding be her first reflex at any sign of danger and thinking of other players as human shields in the novels.
* TokenEvilTeammate: While her position as this was unclear for most of the series, she definitely holds it now that [[spoiler:the core membership of the guild has moved to being her, Sparadrap, Ivy and Couette]].
* TrashOfTheTitans: Her flat is very messy in the comic book.
* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: In Season 3 :
--> '''Gaea''': "Everyone, do what I just wrote on the discussion board."
* [[spoiler:WelcomeBackTraitor]]: [[spoiler:Shown to happen in the fourth novel and implied in the webseries. Played with as Sparadrap asked her if she acutally considers the rest of the guild friends in the novel and the webseries hints she had to promise to straighten up her act if she wanted to come back.]]
* WelcomeEpisode: Early Season 1 episodes.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Her arguments with Omega Zell are countless, since the very first time they meet.
* YaoiFangirl

!!Arthéon

[[quoteright:204:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sans_titre-1_6013.jpg]]

->Class : Warrior
->Guild position : Tank / Guild Master
->Real life name : Stanislas 'Stan' Châtelain

-->Played by : Jonathan Fourcade

After getting his account reset as punishment for RealMoneyTrade and finding no other guild that would accept him at level 1, he was chosen as successor to Master Zen when he ended up in jail. Team parent without completley falling into TeamMom or TeamDad, he's both the glue holding the guild together and its mentor. As a level 100 character, he was part of Justice guild, the top guild of ''Horizon''.

----
* BadassBeard
* TheBigGuy
* BottomlessBladder: He was closed up in the garage of Master Zen's hiding place for ''a whole week''.
** Or his escape may have been precisely because Master Zen forgot to tie him up correctly after letting him go to the bathroom.
* DemotedToExtra: In the webseries, he's started creeping closer and closer to secondary character by being kidnapped for part of Season 2, goingto boarding school in Season 3, his mostly off-screen quest of Sourcelame and [[spoiler:the consequences of finding it]]. This has been reflected by having him disappear from later photomontages and early movie-related montages focusing only on Gaea, Omega Zell and Sparadrap.
* DualWielding: His swords as of late Season 2 [[spoiler:and until Season 4]].
* FelonyMisdemeanor: He considers Judge Dead's reaction to his RealMoneyTrade to be that.
* GeekyTurnOn: He falls in love with Kary upon finding out she's interested in the game's background and dreams of finding a unique object [[spoiler:and wants to marry her after finding Sourcelame]].
* LoveBeforeFirstSight: He's implied to have never met Kary in person, or to have even seen a picture of her. [[spoiler: This does not prevent Arthéon from "genuinely loving her".]]
* [[spoiler:LoveHurts]]
* MyBelovedSmother: His mother is very meddling, so he had to give up any social occupation like sports according to novels. She also used to make Artheon stop playing at 8.00 PM every night. She also sent him to BoardingSchoolOfHorrors in Season 3.
* OnlySaneMan: Before reaching his RageBreakingPoint, [[spoiler:which is basically caused by a deconstruction of the trope.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: You know something is wrong when [[spoiler:he actually calls for Judge Dead despite his phobia of Game Masters.]]
* [[spoiler:NotGoodWithRejection]]: When it comes to him, it's probably the biggest {{Understatement}} of year 2012.
* PerformanceAnxiety: He turns out to suffer from it in one of the comic's stories. It however seems to be a CompressedVice as the first story of the same comic briefly showed him taking down a monster [[spoiler:with his temporarily unbanned level 100 avatar]] while the rest of the guild was watching (Saphir and Ystos were the audience in one of the flash-backs showing occurrences of said anxiety). Check MyBelovedSmother for the possible cause if it's permanent.
* PlayingSick: He has often done the trick to his controlling mom, so he was able to play all day long, also using it to miss class.
* RageBreakingPoint: [[spoiler:At the end of season 4: after years of taking care of the "Noob" Guild, having to deal with Sparadrap's incompetence, Omega Zell's misoginy and opportunism, and Gaea's cupidity, and after enduring Master Zen's manipulations and in real life kidnapping, Arthéon completly ''snaps'' after he was more or less left at the in-game altar by the one girl he fell in love with. See UnstoppableRage for the consequences.]]
* ReluctantRuler: WordOfGod and the comic hint towards him fitting the trope after Master Zen ended up in jail, by taking leadership because he thought Omega Zell and Sparadrap could only do worse than him. [[spoiler:His Rage breaking point deconstructed it along with Only Sane Man.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The guild getting involved in the second novel's plot relies on him being this in an early chapter.
* TheRoleplayer: Especially when when comes to his interest in the background, that makes him MrExposition in the novels.
* SeekerArchetype: He's very interested in ''Horizon's'' background. One of the short stories in the comic has him talking to everyone in a new town while the rest of the guild sitting on a bench waiting for him to finish.
* SkewedPriorities:
** When he tells about Tenshirock whiping out his fromer guild's accounts, he mentions that some players "killed themselves or worse, stopped playing ''Horizon''".
** After getting kidnapped and detained in a garage for a whole week and manging to escape, the first thing he does is go back on ''Horizon''. Somewhat deconstructed in that case since Master Zen [[JustInTime was just about to get Judge Dead to give the Noob guild's leadership back to him under the pretense that Arthéon hadn't shown up in a week]].
* TheStrategist: Used to hold that position in Justice guild according to the novels and is quite obviously keeping it up the Noob guild.
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Inverted in his case, given that Master Zen is hinted to have been quite a tyrant.
* UnstoppableRage: [[spoiler:At the end of Season 4, once he reached his RageBreakingPoint. He goes after Master Zen and kills his avatar (despite the fact that, for once, Master Zen wasn't responsible for his misfortune), reaches the 100th level by the same occasion, almost knocks out Couette, and finally loses it in front of his fellow members of the Noob Guild, where he calls them out on their attitude. He then promptly dissolves the guild, and decides to become a solitary and vengeful player.]]
* WhamLine:
** While the name of his former guild is still unknown and the existence of Justice has been revealed by Omega Zell, Arthéon gets asked by him to send a message to one of his old friends that has information they need :
---> '''Arthéon:''' I've tried already. Fantöm isn't replying to me.
** And in Season 4 finale :
---> '''Arthéon:''' As leader, I declare that the Noob guild [[spoiler:no longer has a reason to be. I wish to disband it right now]].
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He refuses, even if it's a matter of life or death, to ask Game Masters anything. He has a phobia of them since they erased his level 100 character.

!!Omega Zell

[[quoteright:142:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sans_titre-2_2547.jpg]]

--> ''"Honestly though, Arthéon, they let some chick run the Justice Guild! At this rate, they're going to end up with a TokioHotel fan club in the guild !'' ({{Beat}}) ''What ? What is it ? Is she behind me ?"''

->Class : Assassin
->Guild position : DPS / Self proclaimed ace
->Real life name : Morgan Lavande

-->Played by : Julien Guellerin

Reporter for a GirlShowGhetto channel by day, Olydri's most sexist and egocentric assassin by night, his dream is to join Justice guild and be good enough to beat Fantöm. The main obstacles on his way ? The presence of a n00b and a girl (later three of them) that drags his guild's level down and his tendency to get in embarassing situations while trying to be well seen by his ideal colleagues... or just because Tenshirock needs a lab rat.

----
* AmbiguouslyGay: There's his job, his name, but also his real life behavior, especially his food choices (biological salads according to the first novel). Add Tenshirock who likes punishing him by blocking his avatar in dancing mode and Gaea's insinuations that his hero worship of Fantöm is acutally a CelebCrush. He also sides whith Sparadrap when he gives liking the way his clothes look as a reason for not changing them (to something with better stats) in a long time. His sister added an extra layer by mentionning he took classical dancing when he was nine.
* BareFistedMonk: At the beginning of the webseries.
* BerserkButton: According to th first novel, the best way to make him angry is to adress letters meant for him to "Mrs. Morgane Lavande". The thing may get torn into too many pieces to be readable.
* ButtMonkey
* CatchPhrase: "Girls can't play MMORPG!", "Arthéon will never believe me..." and "Girls aren't genetically programmed for X".
* CelibateHero: Invokes the "deliberately avoiding all relationships with the opposite sex" variation to explain the "no girlfriend" aspect of his AmbiguouslyGay characterisation in Season 4.
* CombatAestheticist: In addition to inverting the "using charisma as DumpStat" sterotype, he sometimes takes poses mid-battle. Reactions of other charcters to them imply that his mind in the only place where these poses look any good.
* CultureBlind: Despite being TheTeamWannabe to Justice, he was several times shown to know very little about the requirements to join them aside from reaching level 100. To add insult to injury, ''Gaea'' seems to know more about these requirments than he does.
* CurbStompBattle: He got on the losing side of one when he wanted to have a fight with Saphir to prove he was worthy of the Justice guild.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DreamSequence: The first has him winning a duel against Fantöm... using powers an assassin can't possibly have. The second one has him confronting Tenshirock after being given the combined powers of Fantöm and Judge Dead and asking him to put an end to what he assumes to be his current "getting people off MMORPG" plan : having girls start playing them.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Some of his criticism of Gaea hints that he'd have a problem with her ManipulativeBastard and TheScrooge tendencies even if she were a man.
* GenderBlenderName: In real life.
* GenderScoff: Obviously.
* GibberishOfLove: Put him close enough to Fantöm and he'll go in TheNotLoveInterest counterpart to this.
* HeManWomanHater: The reason may be that girls make him suffer a lot at his job.
** EffeminateMisogynisticGuy: Slips into this whith his misogyny combined to his AmbiguouslyGay characterization.
* HeroWorshipper: To Fantöm, big time.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: During her brief time at his avatar's control in Season 1, Gaea notices he only has 3 points in stealth at level 10 and points out that white is a lousy color for an assassin (he's hinted to have chosen the color only so his clothes would match the Justice Guild tabard he was wearing during the first episodes). In the second novel, he fails to take his cursor in consderation while following a group of people.
* InvoluntaryDance: Tenshirock loves doing that to him.
* IrritationIsTheSincerestFormOfFlattery / IJustWantToBeYou: He's either an exaggerated version of the first of a downplayed version of the second. According to the novels, Fantöm was an assassin before [[spoiler: the first time]] he became a Twilight warrrior, hence his class choice. His lifelong dream is to attain Fantöm's status, but he stays enough of is own person to not completely qualify as IJustWantToBeYou (for starters, he talks way too much to be imitating [[TheQuietOne Fantöm]] personality-wise).
* ItsAllAboutMe: To a lesser extent than Gaea, but enough for him to not be a much better team player than her and be a big factor their conflictual status quo. He's only in the guild while waiting to qualify for Justice, who only takes level 100 players, after all.
* IWasBeatenByAGirl: Surprisingly averted during the CurbStompBattle with Saphir (he let it pass because of the level difference). [[spoiler:Played straight in Season 4 finale after his defeat to Gaea.]]
** This trope comes up during a tournament in the third comic, during which he ends up fighting against Golgotha. The fact that he seemingly considers her OneOfTheBoys comes in full bloom as he obviously considers she has a chance of beating him, but is determined to not let it happen due to her still technically being female.
* JerkassHasAPoint:
** In his rantings about the guild, he frequently points out actually existing flaws (while still ignoring his own).
** When Arthéon shows up after snubbing the guild for several weeks in early Season 4, he calls him on it even after he and Kary take the time to explain everyone what they've been doing.
** In Season 4, after Gaea tells him he'll have to start respecting women sooner or later, he's clearly [[EveryoneHasStandards uncomfortable with the idea of respecting someone who has no morals and spends her time scamming other people]]. He [[spoiler:leaves the guild that's currently under her command]] when Gaea replies that respecting her would actually be a good place to start.
* TheLancer: Despite officially not caring about any member of the guild except Arthéon, he knows his progress is dependant on them and ends up putting minor efforts of his own into making it function, including being a second opinion on Arthéon's decisions and making sure he doesn't fall for Gaea's schemes. His personality also makes him a natural {{Foil}} to Arthéon. The fact that his actions remain self-serving at the end of the day however makes him a lousy leader in Season 4.
* ListingTheFormsOfDegenerates: He's sometimes seen doing this. The long version from the novels has him mention all the banes of {{MMORPG}} players and add "girls" at the end of what would otherwise be an exhaustive and accurate list. The short version seen in the other media reduces it to {{Noob}}s and women as a direct jab to his own teammates: it ends up being a double one to Couette and encompassing everyone except Arthéon and [[spoiler:Fantöm]] during the latter's time in the guild.
* ManInWhite: His first outfit.
* {{Megane}}: Morgan wears glasses in real life.
* MistakenForGay: Gaea seems to believe it, but a discussion with Saphir in Season 4 revealed that in addition to the mentionned above HeManWomanHater issue, he's delibarately [[CelibateHero avoiding any relationship with the opposite sex to be able to focus on the game until he reaches the top]].
* NeatFreak: His flat looks like a model one.
* NeverMyFault: Blames anything that goes wrong on Sparadrap and Gaea, even when he has a part in it.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In Season 2 finale.
* TheOneGuy: At his workplace.
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero
* {{Pride}}: His [[SevenDeadlySins deadly sin]] without hesitation.
* TheScream: Upon finding out about [[spoiler: the enhancements made on Fantöm's avatar]].
* SourSupporter: He pretends to be an enthuiastic feminist around his coworkers and in front of his boss.
* SticksToTheBack: His sword in the comic.
* StrawMisogynist
* TheTeamWannabe: For Fantöm's team, when he's not picturing himself as his successor. [[spoiler:Moves to Ascended Fanboy in Season 4]].
* ToBeAMaster: Pictures himself as Fantöm's sucessor as the ''Horizon'' number one player.
* WhamLine : In Season 4 premiere :
--> '''Omega Zell:''' Before logging off, [Arthéon] made me Guild Master.
** [[spoiler: It turns out he just gave him a second in command rank ("Main Officer" would be the literal translation) that enables him to manage the guild in his absence, but some Master-only actions are not allowed, such us kicking people out. And he did it mostly because Omega Zell hand been pestering him about it for a while.]]
* YaoiGuys: With Fantöm, in [[YaoiFangirl Gaea's]] imagination

--> ''"I usually hate fighting against other players. I prefer inviting them into my guild so they can become my friends."''

->Class : Priest
->Guild position : Healer / Self-appointed recruiter [[spoiler:/ Guild Master]]
->Reroll : Spärädräp, warrior
->Real life name : Kevin Lepape


-->Played by : Frédéric Zolfanelli

Both a {{Noob}} and a ManChild, with a [[ForgetfulJones lousy memory]] to top it off. Despite being as eager as anyone else to reach a higher level (when not convinced he's already at the top), his main focus in ''Horizon'' is his pet collection and trying to get players to join the guild, regardless of the faction to which they belong. In battle, his aiming trouble frequently makes him heal enemies instead of his teammates.

----
* AllLovingHero: His case is so bad that it's easier to list the people he does ''not'' like. Roxana, Kary, done.
* BadassOnPaper: He may not be doing it on purpose, but "bullying" one of the worse Player Killers until he [[spoiler:quits the game]] in the webseries storyline is quite a feat.
* BerserkButton: Three things can actually make him mad: hurting his friends, insulting his grandmother, and [[spoiler:killing his pets]]. Do the three things to him at the same time, and you can actually get him to act serious enough to impress his teammates.
* [[spoiler:BreakTheCutie]]: [[spoiler:While his obssession with collecting pets was played as a comical and ridiculous thing for most of the series, it suddenly turns into an actual TearJerker in season 3 final episodes when they are killed in front of him.]]
** [[spoiler:To an extent, he suffers this again when Arthéon reaches his RageBreakingPoint and delivers him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech about the whole Noob Guild.]]
* CatchPhrase: "Do you want to join my guild ?".
** MadLibsCatchPhrase: "It's ____ (insert adjective) of the dead!". The "of the dead" part is GratuitousEnglish in the original language.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass[=/=]ObfuscatingStupidity: Averted. Dark Avenger and Précieux believe he's one of these, but he's just a real moron with incredible luck.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He started out with all characteristics of a typical {{Noob}}, but ended up only keeping part of it (mostly orverestimating his talent from time to time) and StupidGood currently fits his way of playing much better.
* TheChosenZero: Invoked when Tenshirock arranged for him to get the hacked staff.
* CoincidentalDodge: Almost mandatory if Dark Avenger is around.
* TheCutie: He's petty much the closest thing the series has to a young child.
* DreamSequence: A SugarBowl version of things such as they were in Season 4, with his guildmates being friendly to each other and a complete collection of Smourbiffs to his name.
* [[spoiler:DumbassHasAPoint]]: [[spoiler:As much of an idiot he is, one may agree with him when he calls out Arthéon for his UnstoppableRage in the season 4 finale.]]
* TheFool
* ForgetfulJones
* FurAndLoathing: Possibly because of this trope, he refuses to wear fur items in-game (the fur also happens to be from the same species as his pets), even if the alternative is slowly loosing HP and healing himself every ten seconds. Gaea had to point out that the smourbiffs that were used to make the items would be dead for nothing if he didn't wear them to change his mind.
* HatesBeingAlone: He always seeks company (his recruiting attempts can be seen as being part of it), [[spoiler:hates seeing people leave the guild even when they're jerks and/or never meant to stay forever in the first place]] and a scene from the third novel has him state that he plays with his pets when none of the other guild members are logged in.
* IconicItem: His staff has become that, to the extent of having its own T-Shirt.
* IdiotHero: He qualifies for this during his progression away from TheFool. Threatening to hurt his friends turns out to be one of the few things that can anger him in Season 3 finale. Starting later Season 4 and the fourth novel, [[spoiler:Putting The Band Back Together]] definitely qualifies as an idealistic goal.
* InsaneForgiveness: [[spoiler:His reaction to Omega Zell and Gaea leaving the guild ? Putting their names in parentheses on the list of guild members in case they come back. Especially for Gaea, who left by Face Heel Turn]]. Justified because KindheartedSimpleton and StupidGood aren't on his sheet for nothing.
* InvincibleIncompetent: Dark Avenger and occasionally high level enemies tend to trigger that in him.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Inverted. He frequently either hits the wrong target (enemies with healing, allies with attack) or misses entirely. The only consolation is that ReviveKillsZombie exists in ''Horizon''.
* [[IWantMyMommy I Want My Grandma]]
* KindheartedSimpleton: Probably the "nice person" trope from the list that fits him best. [[ManipulativeBastard Gaea]] is shown taking advatage of it in the novels and comic.
* LiteralMinded: He often mixes up the real life and MMORPG meaning of terms and sometimes needs a mini english lesson along with the explanation of non-French terms. He also has trouble with figures of speech in general.
* MagicStaff: He's actively working on using it as a melee weapon in Season 3 and his obliviousness to its actual length tends to be a factor in his accidental beatings of Dark Avenger.
** [[spoiler:StaffOfAuthority]]: It doubles as that in the later part of the series.
* ManChild
* MeaningfulName: "Kevin" is often considered to be interchangeable with "Noob" in France while his last name is the French equivalent to [=ThePope=]. It doesn't take much twisting to change it into "the Noob priest".
* TheMedic: "Eventually" is both the nicest and most accurate word for his case.
* MessiahCreep: With TheFool as a starting point and going towards AllLovingHero.
* TheMillstone: His lack of healing ability was responsible for more than one TotalPartyKill.
* MissingMom: His mother is quite conspiciusly absent from his ramblings about his family and conversations with his brother.
* NoHeroToHisValet: In Season 3 and the second novel, he turns out to be [[spoiler:a semi-professional tennisman known to be immune to pressure]]. However, in Season 2, he stated that his father and his grandmother would better have him be in front of the computer than doing anything else when he's at home because it means he's not doing anything foolish (in the real world, at least).
* NoSenseOfDirection
* {{Noob}}: Duh.[[spoiler: Even after he reaches level 100]]
* ParalysisByAnalysis: He's implied to be completly immune to this in the webseries and novels (pressure is mentionned to have no effect on him), [[spoiler:which makes him a great tennis player in real life]].
* PhraseCatcher: Being called a noob by random people. He has a standard reaction to it, which is to be amazed that so many people know of the guild.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: His warrior reroll has a feature dedicated to delivering these (whose concrete function is attracting the enemy's attention) and he keeps accidentally activating it. The one-liners in themselves are always hilarious.
* RaisedByGrandparents: He often mentions his grandmother and his dad (who dosen't live with them according to the second novel), but never his mother, implying that she's [[MissingMom missing]].
* SeriesMascot: If one character has to be picked to represent the franchise in a ineup with other mascots, it tends to be him.
* SheepInSheepsClothing: Dark Avenger alone shows that his overly friendly attitude can make him an in-universe case.
* SignatureMove: Healing the enemy (which can turn into ReviveKillsZombie on a "good" day) as his healer, accidentally making his avatar blurt out a PreAsskickingOneLiner as his warrior.
* SmartBall:
** He gets it on two noticeable occasions in the webseries. In Season 1, when Arthéon and Omega Zell have to explain him how the Galamadriabuyak tower works, he asks why it has ten floors when nine should be enough for it to fill its role of unlocking 10 new levels per floor if 100 is the maximum and players who have never entered it are stuck at level 10 (but still shows to be bad at math in the process). In Season 3, in retaliation to Omega Zell's insults, he threatens to [[spoiler: tell Ystos, points out that it would make Fantöm know about it before long, and even lets Omega Zell think that Ystos can hear him... when he's actually asleep on the couch right behind him]]. The second one alone can give the impression that Dark Avenger actually figured him out quite well.
** He also does suprisingly well when he ends up on his own with no other company than [[NonPlayerCharacter Saryahblööd]] in the second novel. When short on time (albeit partly by his own fault), he states out loud a string of key words likely to make [[spoiler:Sin]] react rather than trying to have a real conversation with him.
* StockYuck: When he resorts to a badly planned attempt to kidnap Stanislas/Arthéon to get him to care for the guild again, he admits to have planned all sorts of tortures that include forcing him to eat vegetables.
* StupidGood: Offers players from other factions to join the guild and tried to adopt an enemy monster as a pet at least once.
* SuperPoweredAlterEgo: The avatar being taken over by his younger brother, who's much better at the game than him, tends to play out like that trope.
* TheTeamBenefactor: The guild is stuck with him because they can't find another healer and when it did happen, the girl wasn't much better at the job than him and seldom showed up ; he's actually meant to be an inversion of the trope's ''WorldOfWarcraft'' metagame example. In addition to that, he's the only member of the guild that can [[spoiler:enable them to contact Justice guild directly without having to locate them due to having one of its members playing on the couch behind him in real life]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: His grandma's custard. It often works as a DeliciousDistraction.
* [[spoiler:UnexpectedSuccessor]]: [[spoiler:He managed to make a better replacement leader than Omega Zell and Gaea and is officially Noob's Guild Master by the time Season 5 starts.]]
* TheWatson: Quite a lot of exposition happens because someone else has to explain how something works to him.
* WhiteMage: Literal with his first outfit.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: He considers all his guildmates to be his friends. While it may be understandable when it comes to Arthéon (and later Couette and Ivy), Omega Zell frequently insults him and Gaea isn't that nice to him either.
* WrongGenreSavvy: As far as he's concerned, the Noob guild a is a band of FireForgedFriends and he and Dark Avenger are FriendlyEnemies.

!!Couette
->Class : Elementalist (affliated primarily to water, secondarily to earth)
->Guild position : Second healer
->Real life name : Angélique Fleur

-->Played by : Manon Morand

A teenage beauty queen who pretty much fufills Omega Zell's idea of female video game players. The second n00b of the guild while not having it as bad as Sparadrap, her main flaw is a mild case of AttentionDeficitOohShiny that accompanies her frequent girl talk. Combat wise, she's much better at aiming than Sparadrap, but also shows up much less often than him.

----
* CharacterizationMarchesOn[=/=]DivergentCharacterEvolution: She started off with enough in common with Spradrap to be his DistaffCounterpart. She's now more self-centered about her appearance and informed about in-game fact among other things, making her similarity with him is now closer to what exists between Gaea and Omega Zell.
* TheCutie: Somehow gets overshadowed by a male in his early twenties in that domain.
* DishingOutDirt: Shown to be able to do it with her earth build.
* DistaffCounterpart:
** She started out as one for Sparadrap and it stuck a little longer in the comics and novels than in the series. Even if DivergentCharacterEvolution took place personnality-wise, she keeps quite a few common features with him : healer that seldom switches to tank, questionable talent for said healing, a naive yet charming personality, great real-life success in a highly competitive domain, enough of a {{Noob}} to be part of Tenshirock's Season 2 plan, only other member of the guild given a pet in the comic... even her outfit colors somewhat match Sparadrap's starting Season 4.
** In Season 4, when Arthéon gets pleasantly supried of how well Sparadrap is mananging things in his absence compared to Omega Zell and Gaea (who both had brief time as replacement guild leader before him), he ends up basically saying "Gee, maybe I should have put you in command from the start". Couette replies that she would have done the job just as well as Sparadrap if she had been given the chance.
* IBrokeANail: Overlapped with MinorInjuryOverreaction. She was considering ''going to the emergency room'' before Arthéon told her it wasn't that serious.
* InformedAttractiveness: She's shown winning a regional "miss" contest in real life in the comic and is stated to have done the same in at least another one in the webseries. In the comic, where she's one of the super-deformed characters, yet has been voted cutest avatar on ''Horizon''.
* InformedAttribute: One of the most frequent changes of the novel and comic coverage of the post [[spoiler:fall of Fantöm]] period is to include her in portions of the story from which she's absent in the webseries. This gives her an informed repeated absence status similar to Ivy's in the webseries.
* GirlishPigtails: "Couette" is the french word for said pigtails. And of course, she wears them.
* GlacierWaif: She's one with her earth build, that is meant for tanking.
** More of a StoneWall waif (per T-Man in the webseries Tournament Arc).
* {{Kawaiiko}}: Has shades of this, including the fact that she's looking for "kawaii" clothing items for her avatar by her own words. The shopping she does in her real life scene from the comic confirms this.
* LiteralMinded: Gets her moments, but can tell the difference between the real life and MMORPG meaning of a term much more often than Sparadrap.
* MakingASplash: Her attack spells in the comic.
* {{Noob}}: Zig-zagged. She can go from being well-informed and well-aware of what she's supposed to do to completely lost, sometimes in the same scene.
* RapunzelHair: Her avatar in the comic. The (shorter) hair length she's seen with in the series is shown to be the one she maintains in real life.
* StupidGood: Her comic version shows a little of it, due to the personality seperation from Sparadrap being a little slower.
* VagueAge: It's hard to tell if she's in her early teens or older but short and childish for her age. Manon Morand herself is actually a short adult (Ystos will be holding the title of cast junior until Sin, whose designated actor is his younger brother, shows up in the movies).
* WardrobeWound: One her character traits ''not'' inherited from her past as Sparadrap's DistaffCounterpart is a (currently comic-only) bane for this trope.
* WhiteMage: Even started out wearing white before moving to blue in Season 4.

!!Ivy
->Class : Neogician
->Guild position : Second nuker / Distance DPS
->Real Life Name : Fanny Blanchet

-->Played by : Johanna Fournier

SleepyHead by excellence, she frequently looses track of what happens in the game. ''Very'' laid back and puts both her gunslinger and bomb builder talents in good use when awake. She's frequently the one who fills in the rest of the guild on game features and facts that they encounter for the first time, making her the ''Horizon'' expert in Arthéon's absence.

----
* ActionBomb: Potentially, but only seen that time Gaea forced her into it via PeoplePuppets [[spoiler:and when she gave up her tournament victory in favor of Omega Zell]].
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Despite her almost catanonic attitude, she is one of the most effective fighters in the guild.
* BioAugmentation: A perk her class gets from being part of the Empire, that possesses the secret of technology. The second novel however states it keeps her from using magic (implictly to keep the class from becoming a GameBreaker).
* CharacterExaggeration: Just read the novel in which she's introduced. Yes, that's her building something else than a bomb in the underground forest scene.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DumbBlonde: Averted. She's the only blonde girl in the Noob Guild, yet not only is her avatar a technology expert, but she's also one of the most lucid players in the Guild.
* TheEngineer
* InformedAttribute: Happened twice. Upon her introduction, Arthéon mentionned she didn't show up much. However, aside from the three first episodes of Season 3 during which only novel readers would know she's supposed to be part of the guild, she ended being present so often that she functionnally became a full-time member of the guild while Couette and Golgotha remained sixth rangers. In Season 4, Gaea mentions that she's sleeping even more than before because she stopped taking her narcolepsy medication ; she's not seen falling asleep much more on screen, but it happenning off screen is supposed to be the reason the guild breaks its record of failed quests.
** Her tendency to not show up briefly became relevant in Season 4, where she was absent during the whole Dungeon of Chaos arc and the two first thirds of the finale.
* GadgeteerGenius
* TheGunslinger
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: When she judges a situation desperate enough, she may decide to leave the scene before the thought even crosses ''Gaea's'' mind. One of her webseries lines that ended up on official material can be paraphrased as "Oh, looks like we're going to be harassed by player killers. I'm going to the movie theater, see you guys in two or three hours.".
* [[spoiler:TheLancer]]: Slips into that role in Season 5.
* MadBomber: A heroic version.
* OnlySaneWoman: When she's not sleeping, she's the female member of the guild that is the most in touch whith reality. [[spoiler:And she pretty much becomes the sanest person in the group after Arthéon snaps.]]
* SleepyHead: Season 4 reveals that she actually has narcolepsy.
* SuperSpeed: Thanks to [[BioAugmentation genetical enhancement]].
** FlashStep: The most frequent way the speed in question is depicted.

!Former / Short Lived members of Noob Guild
!! Master Zen
->Class : Mage
->Guild position : Former nuker / Guild Master
->Real life name: Robert Dumoulin

-->Played by : Lionel Tagliavini

The {{Hair Trigger Temper}}ed Noob guild founder and former master who ended up in jail after an appliance defenestration gone horribly wrong. He eventually escapes only to get the guild back, then to make its member's life hell when it fails.

----
* AccidentalMurder
* AxCrazy: Or at least he claims to be so ; while he is definitely crazy and does regularly threaten others to find them in real life and kill them, he has yet to actually do it. He still does kidnap and sequester people though.
* BadBoss: He's hinted in Season 1 to have been quite a tyrannical Guild Master, Omega Zell was unwilling to see him replace Arthéon in Season 2, and those who know him were surprised when he seemingly accepted their refusal of having him as leader again.
* BlackMage
* ChekhovMIA: Gets jointly mentionned by Sparadrap and Omega Zell as early as episode 3, and his escape serves as the final scene of Season 1 finale. The novels and the comic [[spoiler: have him already part of the Order by the time he becomes relevant]].
* [[spoiler:TheChessmaster]]: [[spoiler:Subverted in the Season 2 finale. When he shows up, Arthéon assumes he was this. Master Zen, however, immediatly admits he ''hasn't'' planned everything from the beginning ; he just happened to be spying on them and had the idea of calling Judge Dead on the fact they had an illegal item on the spot.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: Granted, one can't blame him for hating Sparadrap (even if it wasn't intentionnal, Sparadrap ''did'' cause him to accidentally commit murder and go to jail). On the other hand, kidnapping Arthéon and trying to get all the guild banned merely because they didn't want him to take his Guild Master title back seems a bit overreacting.
* HairTriggerTemper: {{Wrath}} comes to mind as his deadly sin.
* [[spoiler:HoistByHisOwnPetard]]:[[spoiler:In the Season 2 finale, he asks for a Game Master right when Sparadrap and Arthéon reach the place that could get them rid of the hacked staff and decides to keep them busy until he shows up, expecting the possession of the staff to get them kicked out of ''Horizon''. When Judge Dead finally arrives, he's quick to reveal that possession of hacked equipement is no longer punished since it had been discovered that Tenshirock was the actual guilty party. Master Zen's first reaction to that news is to try using the staff to destroy his former colleague's avatars, causing him to get banned by someone he had summoned in the first place]].
* IronicName: He's probably the ''less'' zen character of the whole franchise.
* KnightOfCerebus: His appearance contributes a lot to the series's CerebusSyndrome as previous villains where no longer dangerous once one logged off of the game. His absence from the comic outside Arthéon's flash back [[spoiler: until comic number 7]] seems to contribute to it starting out both with a LighterAndSofter tone and chronologically after Season 2.
* SirSwearsALot


!!Nazetrîme

->Class : Berserker
->Guild position : Second tank

-->Played by : Floria Noel

Hired to replace Arthéon in Season 3, she disappears after events of the Wham episode. She eventually reappears [[spoiler: as an Order cartomancer, which was her real character all along ; check second Walking Spoiler of Relic Hunter guild for her permanent incarnation]].
----
* AdaptedOut: Subverted. After getting demoted to mere anecdote in the novel version of the story, she doesn't appear at all in the comic version in her original role, but she briefly becomes relevant in the ninth comic.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Appropriatley [[spoiler:seen again as an enemy]] after leaving the guild.
* [[spoiler:EvilAllAlong]]
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]

!!Grobin des Doigts

->Class : Archer

-->Played by : Marcus

The character created by a video game tester trying out ''Horizon 2.0'', that Arthéon accepts into the guild due to the lack of new Empire players at the time. He runs into Ash little time after that, buys credits from him witout realising that real money trade isn't allowed in the game and gets kicked out by a Game Master.

----
* CelebrityStar: The guy is a known video game tester in France.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Literally.
* PunnyName: A play on Robin des Bois, the French name of RobinHood.
* WeHardlyKnewYe

!![[spoiler:Fantöm]]

->Class : [[spoiler:Elementalist]]

First meant to do the game solo all over again, but ended up having to join the Noob guild when faced with the lack of low level Empire players that made forming a PickUpGroup impossible when it was needed. Has left by the time Season 4 starts, presumably because the guild's help was no longer needed.

----
* [[spoiler:BrokenPedestal]]:[[spoiler:Later subverted]].
* [[spoiler:ClearMyName]]:[[spoiler:The reason he didn't want any help from his former teammates, even after being assured he had become number one on his own the first time]].
* GuestStarPartyMember
* [[spoiler:JackOfAllStats]]:[[spoiler:A unspecialized elementalist is apparently the closest he could get to a polyvalent Twilight warrior with a standard class. According to the novels, he can tank, nuke, DPS and heal decently, but not as well as if he had specialized in any of them]].
* [[spoiler:SuddenHumility]]:[[spoiler:Both turning out to have been illegally enhanced without knowing it and having to start over again had quite an effect on him.]]
* [[spoiler:TemporarySubstitute]]:[[spoiler:During that period, his situation was strangely close to Arthéon's : Tank, former level 100 Justice guild member, back to level 1 because of cheating, most experienced player of the guild, joined due to a lack of options. He showed up right when Arthéon was having exams and was temporarily going from playing an hour per day to not playing at all. The "replacing a character whose actor isn't available" aspect is somewhat present, given that the "Arthéon in boarding school" plotline exists because the actor playing him moved far away enough to be less available than in the two first seasons. The only difference is that Fantöm didn't appear just to replace him.]]
* [[spoiler:WeakButSkilled]]: [[spoiler:Low level avatar, great player.]]

!Justice Guild
The top guild of ''Horizon'' [[spoiler:until Season 3]], whose top group ends up getting a lot of focus in the story as Arthéon's old one, Omega Zell's dream [[spoiler:and later current]] one and [[spoiler:having Sparadrap's brother among them]] among other things.

!!Fantöm
->Class : Twilight Warrior
->Guild position : Tank / Ace
->Real life name : Max Middle

-->Played by: Fabien Fournier

Top player of ''Horizon'' and Ace of Justice guild, notably famous for beating the top boss of ''Horizon 1.0'' by himself. Admired by many players including Omega Zell, who becomes completly startled when he's around. While perfectly capable of being a OneManArmy, he frequently does dungeons and quests with three other players of his guild.

----
* TheAce: [[spoiler:Up to Season 3, still working on getting back there in Season 5.]]
* AlliterativeName: In real life.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: He was this to Amaras in his backstory.
* ArtEvolution: He's the most obvious case in the comic, where he started out with a slightly muscular upper body and ended up with so much muscle and so thin legs that one must wonder how his real life self manages to stand.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: The novels explain that he can beat bosses meant for a full PlayerParty due to figuring out their behaviour patterns and plannning for them no matter how complex they have been made.
* {{Badass}}: This guy is one of the few people who actually succeeded in reaching the [[PrestigeClass Legendary Class]]. [[spoiler:''Twice''. And the second time, he did it in a short amont time while being in the Noob Guild.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Appeared in the ''Horizon'' ad from the first episode long before being established as a regular character.
* DebtDetester: [[spoiler:He considers himself indebted to the Noob guild and both debts he's shown repaying onscreen happened without him actually asking Omega Zell and Arthéon if that's actually the way they want the favor to be "spent"(even though it's hard to see what else Omega Zell would have wanted). The fact that he considers he owes Amaras for the few years he should have top player become relevant in Season 5 finale]].
* DeusExitMachina: In the Dungeon of Chaos arc, he broke off from the rest of the group to go after Tabris. That left rest of the group having to do the boss fight without him.
* GeniusBruiser: While his avatar is pretty much a powerhouse, all the group battles he won by himself involved a lot planning that shows that he's quite smart.
* [[spoiler:LockedOutOfTheLoop]]:[[spoiler: When it comes to the enhancements given to his avatar each time he got close to loosing to Amaras]].
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: For both Spectre and Mist.
* MistakenForGay: He crossed the line between being the LoveInterest in Gaea's personal "Omega Zell is gay" scenario and that trope when [[spoiler:she decided Omega Zell must have pulled the casting couch on him to get into the Justice guild]].
* TheNotLoveInterest: To Omega Zell, who tends to act like someone with a CelebCrush around him. Omega Zell stated to have chosen to be a CelibateHero to explain his lack of interest in relationships (with women at least) in Season 4, but Gaea's YaoiFangirl antiques mixed with a drive to humiliate him have made the waters ''really'' muddy prior to this. There's also Spectre's general WorthyOpponent attitude towards him.
* TheQuietOne: He doesn't speak much, and his "I see" VerbalTic seems to has developped as a way to tell people "Yes, I heard what you told me, but I have nothing special to say about it".
* [[spoiler:RebuiltPedestal]]: [[spoiler:Albeit with a quite short delay between breaking and rebuilding when it comes to his teammates. The rebuilding to the eyes of anyone else is still in progress, but it went past an important step when Omega Zell reverted to having a fanboy-ish attitude in his presence.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: Season 3 events made his drop the insufferable part of his somewhat InsufferableGenius attitude from the earlier part of the story.
* UltimateGamer386: With a few twists due to the fact that he's meant to last longer than a single episode. [[spoiler:Including a cynical deconstruction and double subversion.]]
* [[spoiler:UnPerson]]:[[spoiler: How Judge Dead deals with the public discovery of the enhancements given to him behind his back. He not only actually erases his avatar (the biggest punishment is usally permanent ban that keeps the avatar from being used but still in existence), but also erases any trace of what he ever accomplished. In a nutshell, players will remember he existed, but from the game's point of view, Judge Dead puts it quite well : "The famous Fantöm no longer exists. He has never existed.".]]
* VerbalTic: "I see". That tic popped up when Sparadrap wanted to imitate him and a piece of paper with these words written on it became part of the mannequin Omega Zell maked to prepare for an interview with him.
* WhamLine:
** In Season 4:
--->[[spoiler:'''Fantöm:''' Saphir, give [Omega Zell] a chance.]]
** Another in Season 5 finale, in the midst of his battle against Spectre and Amaras :
--->[[spoiler:'''Fantöm:''' Amaras?\\
'''Amaras:''' What ?\\
'''Fantöm:''' Prepare to become a legend.]]
* YaoiGuys: With Omega Zell, in [[YaoiFangirl Gaea's]] imagination.

!!Saphir

--> ''"If I had to give a second chance to all losers of [Omega Zell's] kind, we'd be rock-bottom in ranking."''

->Class: Paladin
->Guild position : Preemtive healer / Buffer / Admissions
->Real life name : Penelope

-->Played by : Amandine Train

In charge of the Justice guild's admissions, she will only let the very best join, going up to bashing anyone who dares to apply without fitting her criteria. She has a general disdain for low-level players and considers Arthéon starting again from level 1 as a cruel punishment. Her helpful side tends to show up only when her teammates are in danger.

----
* BarrierWarrior
* CurbStompBattle: Omega Zell once offered to have a fight with her to prove that he was worthy of joining the Justice guild. She shot him with an energy projectile before he could even pull his sword out.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DrillSergeantNasty: Shows elements of this when it comes to [[spoiler:Omega Zell's training]].
* HideYourPregnancy: She got a mild case before Rubis got introduced. The episode that had her use a Gaea look-alike avatar in-game had a few shots of Penelope behind the computer, but only her face was shown.
* IronLady
* JerkassHasAPoint: Her refusal to give Omega Zell any special treatment may be cruel from his point of view, but she probably had to deal with plenty of other players that considered themselves entitled to special treatment and just sees no reason to treat him differently.
* TheLancer: Foil to Heimdäl, heavily implied to be second in command.
* ThePerfectionist: In addition to what she expects from applicants, she'd rather have Ystos resurrect a random player than interview someone in DeadCharacterWalking form.
* SitcomArchnemesis: To Omega Zell.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Even in the six-person configuration of the team shown in Season 4, she's the only female member.
* StatusBuff
* YouKnowImBlackRight: Omega Zell once tried to present the fact that he's a misogynist a good thing because she refuses any applicants that have girlfriends. Her reply to that was to remind him that she's a woman herself.

!!Ystos
->Class: Druid
->Guild position : Healer (Classic)
->Reroll : Ystös, assassin (Noob guild)
->Real life name : Thomas [[spoiler:Lepape]]

-->Played by : Matthieu Zecchini

Team Fantöm's level-headed and stoic healer. Much less snobbish than his guild mates, he has no problem speaking to Arthéon on a casual basis and helps out the Noob guild several times [[spoiler:both via control of his older bother's avatar and his own character. Sparadrap is convinced to be the one who taught him to be such a good healer, making him treat Ystos like an inexperienced disciple]].

----
* BigBrotherMentor: He's half-way between that role and HonoraryTrueCompanion for the Noob guild and an example of mental age counting more than physical age, [[spoiler:especially when it comes to Sparadrap]].
* [[spoiler:BigLittleBrother]]:[[spoiler: In the comic, all level 100 avatars have human proportions while lower level characters are super-deformed and shorter. One of the consequences of the convention is that he's almost twice as tall as Sparadrap]].
* CombatMedic
* CommunicationsOfficer: Basically turned into that during the Season 3 finale, largely due to his easy contact with both his colleagues and the Noob guild. Even outside that episode's context, the second novel hints he's the best means the Noob guild has to contact Justice's higher ups if needed.
* CrazyPrepared: [[spoiler: In Season 2 finale, he had a second laptop next to him just in case he needed to take control of Sparadrap.]]
* CreepyMonotone: He can get quite close to this when he's using his assassin.
* FacePalm: In Season 2 premiere, [[spoiler:upon seeing Sparadrap convinced that ''Horizon 1.1'' installed itself on their home computer on its own, right after kicking him off it under pretense that he doesn't know how to play]].
* GuestStarPartyMember: With his help being mostly in the logistics domain [[spoiler:and the fact that he has easy access to the computer Sparadrap usually uses]], he only formally joined the Noob guild's party once.
* HonoraryTrueCompanion: Downplayed compared to Golgotha's situation, but enough for his reroll in the Noob guild to fit in perfectly the second it's created.
* InstantCostumeChange: The battle mask he sometimes wears usually appears on his face in a split second.
* NotSoStoic: His in-game stoic self is implied to be part of him roleplaying as a healer (hence his attitude change when playing his assassin). In the webseries, this has led him to burst into tears over [[spoiler:being reminded of Fantöm's absence]] and be obviously overjoyed when [[spoiler:Sparadrap reaches level 100]]. The few scenes of the comic showing him at home have him wear context-appropriate expressions and just happen to have a calm and composed personality.
* [[spoiler:RaisedByGrandparents]]: [[spoiler:Implied by the fact that he's Sparadrap's younger brother, but he never mentions the fact himself]].
* SixthRanger: A full fledged one for the Noob guild as his assassin.
* StealthHiBye: He has a habit of doing this as his assassin.
** SmokeOut: He fails spectacularly the only time he's seen trying it, as he's still seen walking away at normal pace by the time the smoke dissipates. Fourtunately, he was just leaving after coming to announce his victory at the lower level tournament to Heimdäl.
* WeakButSkilled: His assassin has yet to catch up with the rest of the Noob guild in terms of level, but he won the tournament in which he participated with very little effort.
* WhiteMage
* WorkHardPlayHard: Sneaking up behind Ivy is the first thing he does after creating his assassin alt. An even better example of that side of him is [[spoiler:how crazy he went in real life along with Sparadrap when he reached level 100. Once the celebration is over, Sparadrap seems to have trouble believing it actually happened and Ystos hints he'd better have it not leave their house]].

!!Heimdäl
->Class: Mage
->Guild position : Nuker / Guild Master
->Real life name : Franck Garcia

-->Played by : Benjamin Masnières

Master of ''Horizon's'' top guild and team Fantöm's strategist, who's distinctive sign is a white (later gold) mask covering his face. If provoked, he will usually be the first of the team to loose his temper, Saphir being the one who calms him down just as easily.

----
* BlackMage : Literal during Season 2 and in the openings.
* CoolMask
* ExpressiveMask: Averted in the series, but played straight in the comic.
* HonorBeforeReason: He apparently takes honor very seriously, to the point of allowing Fantöm to pay his debt to [[spoiler:the Noob Guild]] even if it might weaken the Justice Guild.
** The act may have been a least partly reason-oriented : according to the novels, Fantöm was in another guild than Justice during his time as an assassin, but eventually left it because its members had no regards for his wishes (the leader notably wouldn't let him get the Twilight warrior class if the opportunity came). Not letting Fantöm pay his debt may hence be akin to getting on his bad side. And in a way, Heimdäl owes [[spoiler:the Noob guild]] also for [[spoiler:their part in Fantöm's return in Justice]]. He could have been invoking his sense of honor just to avoid a long explanation in an already slow-paced episode.
* TheLeader
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He's the best mage on ''Horizon'', leader of the game's top guild and most importantly Fantöm's teammate. In Season 5, Gaea mentions that he's the one with the best chance of winning a tournament happening while Fantöm, Amaras and Spectre are busy elsewhere.
* TheRival: He used to be that to Coalition!Spectre.
* TheRoleplayer: Shown mostly in the novels, where he even states to hate Amaras for having the PlayTheGameSkipTheStory approach to ''Horizon''.
* TheSmartGuy
* TheStrategist: According to the novels.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Averted. However played straight with the mask's origin, that is a drop from the Source of Chaos and stated to be one of its personal items.

!!Castörga

Leader of Empire's troops in Season 3 finale and acting as a sixth ranger to team Fantöm in Season 4.

----
* ChekhovsGunman
* EarlyBirdCameo: In the comic, he appeared near the end of the sixth book, that covers a period between Season 3 premiere and Episode 4 (Arthéon knows he's going to boarding school but hasn't left yet, Sparadrap is still levelling up his warrior).
* ReplacementGoldfish: Probably. He's SixthRanger to Fantöm's team, mild-mannered, is trusted to lead a whole army when the others can't do it, plays a tanking-capable class [[spoiler:and is shown to get along with Omega Zell despite possibly knowing him for a shorter time than everyone else]]. If he turns out to be filling the slot Arthéon left open when his level 100 character got banned, it will hardly be a surprise.

!![[spoiler:Omega Zell]]
->Class: [[spoiler:Assassin]]
->Guild position : [[spoiler:DPS]]

-->Played by : [[spoiler:Julien Guellerin]]

[[spoiler:Joined the guild thanks to Fantöm who also signed him up in the main roster. Much weaker than the rest of the group and with no experience of high-level playing, he quickly starts feeling like "the group's Sparadrap" by his own words. While he's tolerated by most of the team, Saphir doesn't plan to leave him in peace. He gets better after the Dungeon of Chaos arc, however]].

* [[spoiler:AscendedFanboy]]
* [[spoiler:BlackSwordsAreBetter]]: [[spoiler:He even lampshaded the fact they match his clothes.]]
* [[spoiler:CombatAestheticist]]: [[spoiler:That aspect of him comes up when he finds out about his future as a berserker, which happens to be more damage-resistant than an assassin. One of his very first reactions to the news can be paraphrasedd as "Hey, does that mean I'll be able to take my charismatic poses without risking getting killed on the spot?".]]
* [[spoiler:DualWielding]]
* [[spoiler:IWasBeatenByAGirl]]: [[spoiler:Check Sore Loser for more info.]]
* [[spoiler:KatanasAreJustBetter]]: [[spoiler:The first loot he gets from fighting a boss at the guild's side.]]
* [[spoiler:LaserGuidedKarma]]: [[spoiler:Saphir is pretty much treating him the way he used to treat Sparadrap.]]
* [[spoiler:TheLoad]]: Played with depending on the storyline :
** In the webseries, [[spoiler:Saphir's words right after reluctantly letting him into the guild say it all : "You know having him with us will lower our statistics, right?". He proves to be at least a little bit useful in the Dungeon of Chaos arc.]]
** In the fourth novel, [[spoiler:Saphir invokes the fact to have him "supervise" the Noob guild while she, Heimdäl and Ystos go do the high-level stuff.]]
* [[spoiler:SoreLoser]]: [[spoiler:How could he take loosing to Gaea well ?]]
* [[spoiler:TookALevelInBadass]]: [[spoiler:His status as The Load only lasted until the end of the Dungeon of Chaos arc in the webseries. The stat bonuses he gets just for being part of Justice and his new equipment help a little also.]]
* [[spoiler:YouGetMeCoffee]]: [[spoiler:Saphir likes giving him menial tasks when the group isn't dungeon crawling.]]

!!Rubis

-->Played by: Petulia

Saphir's younger sister who replaces her for the last few episodes of Season 5.

----
* FamilyThemeNaming[=/=]RockThemeNaming: As you may have guessed, "saphir" and "rubis" are the French words for "sapphire" and "ruby".
* RealLifeWritesThePlot[=/=]TemporarySubstitute: Amandine Train (Saphir) had a baby during the break between episodes 6 and 7 of Season 5, while a plotline involving her was left hanging. Hence Saphir's sudden off-screen quest while letting her sister Rubis take care of things. Photos of from the filming of the first movie seem to indicate that she's still filling in.

!!Jibedix

-->Played by: JBX

A spy for Justice guild.

----
* [[IHaveManyNames I Have Many Avatars]]: He mentions using several avatars for his spying purposes and changing his voice via microphone for each of them.
* PunnyName: The "Jibe" part can have the same prononciation as "JB" in French and "dix" is the French word for "ten" (X in roman numerals).

!Other Empire Players
!!Golgotha
->Class : Warrior
->Real life name : Catherine Mourru

-->Played by : Amandine Tagliavini

A mercenary and Gaea's childhood friend who's mainly interested in the game's killing enemies aspect. Fifth (up to eigth with Ivy, Couette and non-overlapping temporary members) member of the Noob guild at heart, she frequently joins the party for free, sometimes without being asked, to be able to spend time with Gaea and other members to whom she's warmed up.

----
* AttackAttackAttack: A rough equivalent of the trope name even happens to be her CatchPhrase. This tends to be a side effect of the LeeroyJenkins and BloodKnight combo, but a pure case of this can be found in the fourth comic where she doesn't let multiple deaths a row stop her (remember ContinuingIsPainful in ''Horizon'' and the healer to which she has easiest access is the most incompetent of the game).
* AnAxeToGrind
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]: Towards Gaea. It's a bad idea to even threaten Gaea if she's around (or at the other side of the game map, for that matter). The free jobs she does for the Noob guild frequently start with her showing up to beat the pulp out whatever is bothering Gaea and forgetting to leave.
* BloodKnight: She considers any non-battle quests, or even too short battles to be boring. In Season 3 premiere, she even chooses to wait for an enemy to respawn over collecting the reward for killing it.
* BoisterousBruiser: A female case that doesn't fit into TheLadette.
* DemotedToExtra: In the novels. She gives the Noob guild a freebee ''and'' gets mentioned in Gaea's backstory in the first one. Her appearance in the second one boils down to "Remember Golgotha? She still likes giving people nicknames and lives with Gaea now". The third one isn't much better, as she's mentionned a few times in the part adapting Season 3 and only randomly appears near the end in the novel-only half of the story. In the fourth, she's seen sleeping in Gaea's appartement and later noticed by Fantöm during the climax. "Demoted to recurring OneSceneWonder" may be more appropriate, however.
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: In the two visual media, her friendly gestures towards Gaea seem to geuninely harm the latter. Gaea lampsahed it in the comic, with such lines as "you almost killed me just saying 'hi'" and "she would have probably killed me for real if she weren't canalizing her energy in video games.".
* HairDecorations: She's seen wearing bow-shaped ones in Season 2 and the fifth comic.
* HideYourPregnancy: The reason she was playing a mage wearing a baggy dress in the Season 3 final episodes.
* HonoraryTrueCompanion: Despite not actually being part of the Noob guild, it has become hardly surprising to see her hanging around with its members. Official photomontages and surveys supposed to include only Noob guild members tend to throw her in. Even some members of the Justice guild seem to have caught onto it: when plans to enlist the Noob guild's help are made, her participation seems to be taken for granted.
* LeeroyJenkins: She's HonoraryTrueCompanion to a guild named Noob, after all. Season 3 premiere shows a scene from her point of view where she focuses on the first enemy she sees while Arthéon explaining the strategy is perceived as unintelligible.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: In the first two seasons. Starting Season 3 and the sixth comic book, she drops the shield and prefers using her axe with both hands.
* MoralityPet: If Gaea has a genuine friendship with someone, it's with her. Since Gaea is a DirtyCoward, Golgotha is the one that goes MamaBear when needed.
* NoIndoorVoice
* OneOfTheBoys: The way Omega Zell apparently views her. She never got a single misogynistic comment from him and he even went through a brief period of being convinced that the player behind her is actually male in the series and novels, in addition to calling her "a man trapped in a woman's body" in the comic. When they have to fight each other in tournament in the comic, Omega Zell obviously thinks she has a chance of beating him, while he usually assumes that his female peers have zero chance of being better than him. When she wears a dress for [[spoiler:his in-game wedding]], Arthéon remarks that she "disguised herself as a girl".
* OutOfCharacterMoment: She seems quite enthusiastic about the fact that her mage is more "princess-like" the first time it's seen.
* PsychoForHire: In theory, at least. She only mentions money during her introduction, on an occasion during which she says she'll join for free if she gets to kill something and when Couette asks her why she doesn't replace Arthéon in Season 3. It comes back on the table in Season 4, when she becomes the much-needed fourth member of the group [[spoiler:after both Omega Zell and Gaea have left the guild]].
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Her webseries-only mage reroll that she dresses in nice clothes and the HairDecorations she's sometimes seen wearing in the webseries and comic. Her real life clothing style isn't conspiciously masculine either.
* TomboyishPonytail: Her early appearance. It was let go of about the same time as her shield.
* SecretKeeper: She was the only regular character to know about [[spoiler:the video Gaea used to blackmail the game creators to get her banned avatar back]] for quite a while.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Her general attitude towards people she likes. It can even be hard to tell if she likes someone or not until she slips in something along the lines of "happy to see you !".

!!Omega Zelette
->Class : Assassin
->Real life name : Camille Lavande

-->Played by : Audrey Garotte

Omega Zell's sister who took over one of his old CrossPlaying attempts and seems to get along with Gaea quite well. Has so far only appeared in Season 3's triple length finale and the episode right before it.

----
* [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Sibling]]: The character in a nutshell.
* ContinuityNod: To the fact that Omega Zell had a female avatar lying around.
* [[RememberTheNewGuy Remember The New Girl]][=/=]SchrodingersGun: The first novel has a few pararagraphs about Omega Zell's childhood and the comic showed him having a family dinner. Neither of them show or mention a sibling, but don't outright state that he's an only child either.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:COALITION PLAYERS]]
!Roxxor Guild
The top Coalition guild whose main roster is rival to Justice guild's. It's also top in the guild hierarchy that it managed to impose inside the faction. The main illustration of that is a tax all other Coalition guilds have to pay them.

!!Amaras
->Class : Twilight Warrior
->Guild position : Tank / Guild Master

-->Played by : Mikael Berthet

Coalition top player, and his faction's best hope of beating Fantöm some day. He inherited the Roxxor guild from his master Spectre, who was number one in his time. Since then, he has annexed the top guilds of the Coalition and made his party out of the masters of three of them.

----
* TheAce: For the Coalition [[spoiler:then game-wide starting Season 3]].
* AlwaysSecondBest: [[spoiler:Subverted in Season 3 when both the revelation that Fantöm's avatar was secretely enhanced and its disappearance make him number one. Double subverted when it turns out that the enhacements only started after the first duel Fantöm won against Amaras. He's still number one by the time the fourth novel happens, but Fantöm is back in the top ten.]]
* {{Badass}}: He's Fantöm's rival. What did you expect ?
* TheLeader
* [[spoiler:ReplacementGoldfish]]: [[spoiler:After Fantöm's first avatar is deleted, the comics and novels heavily imply that his face is pretty much everywhere Fantöm's used to be, from television advertizements made for sponosors to a life-sized statue in Donteuil's office.]]
* TheRival: To Fantöm.
* OutOfFocus: Not that much was seen of him in the first place, but the "preparing for the three champions duel" portion of the story focuses so much on the WorthyOpponent relationship developping between Spectre and Fantöm that Amaras isn't seen preparing for it at all. When he does appear, it's as Roxxor's leader rather than its top player.
* UltimateGamer386: He's able to keep up with Fantöm [[spoiler:up to Season 3 despite the illegal enhancements that were done on the latters's avatar at the time.]]

!!Decklan
->Class : Assassin
->Guild position : DPS (team Amaras) / Guild Master (unseen Howling Shadow guild)

-->Played by : Jacky Fasel

A member of team Amaras who's been mostly seen in combat and accompanying Roxana so far.

----
* DistractedByTheSexy[=/=]CutenessProximity: At some point in the comic, Couette apparently managed to use her looks to distract him for a short while.
* DualWielding: Uses a pair of katars in battle at the end of Season 2 two and in the second novel.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: He upgraded to one during the time skip between Seasons 2 and 3.
* SatelliteCharacter

!!Battos
->Class : Druid
->Guild position : Healer (team Amaras) / Guild Master (unseen Dead Wood guild)

-->Played by : Florian Beaume

A member of team Amaras who's been mostly seen in combat and accompanying Roxana so far.

----
* CombatMedic
* DroppingTheBombshell: When he, Roxana and Decklan decide to confront the Justice main roster about [[spoiler:Fantöm being cheated]] in the webseries version, they start off whith a YouKnowWhatYouDid-like speech. A this point, the audience knows that Amaras discovered something that made him furious. Since the Justice main roster is LockedOutOfTheLoop on the subject, their response is basically "No, we don't know what we did. YoureJustJealous.". Battos is the one let Justice know that the conversation wasn't pure taunting by uttering verbatim "That's strange, they don't seem to know.".
* SatelliteCharacter
* TheQuietOne: His comic version has yet to have a line of dialog.
* WhiteMage

!!T-Man
->Class : Warrior

-->Played by : Guillaume Durand

A Coalition player the Noob guild frequently runs into during the course of the series, alone or as part of random groups of Coalition players. Who beats who tends to depend on plot necessities and the numbers either side has at the time.

----
* DoublePlay : Also has character in the Empire, but apparently stopped using it after it was refused entry in the Justice guild.
* RecurringExtra

!Player Killer "PK" Guild
Presumably ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. One of the Roxxor guild's main allies, the guild Roxana is head of and of which Dark Avenger and Précieux are members.

!!Roxana
->Class : Elementalist (affiliated primarly to fire, secondarily to water)
->Guild position : Nuker (team Amaras) / Guild Master (Player Killer Guild)

-->Played by : Laure Mattei

Spokesperson and second in command for the Roxxor guild, leader of the Player Killer guild.

----
* AllThereInTheManual: The fact she's number five on ''Horizon'' [[spoiler:before the fall of Fantöm]] and can double as a healer if the usual one get taken down is only mentionned in the novels.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: The way she treats [[spoiler:killing Sparadrap's pets]] in Season 3 finale, when Sparadrap confronts her about it in Season 4.
* CoolMask
* IronLady
* KickTheDog: Her [[spoiler:killing Sparadrap's pets]] is one of the rare scenes not played for laughs, and pretty much removes any possible sympathy for the character.
* KnightOfCerebus: For Sparadrap's individual storyline. She's the first player whith whom he gets geuninely antagonistic while both Dark Avenger and the Relic Hunter guild leader have failed to get the "hey, we're enemies you idiot" message through.
* LadyOfBlackMagic
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Season 5 finale states that if she had let Saphir complete the quest whose side effect would have been putting Justice back to its former top guild position, the webseries would have ended with a better outcome than the faction of Chaos just about to invade Olydri.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:Killing Sparadrap's pets. In the webseries version of the scene, she pushes Sparadrap's Berserk Button. In the novel version, the bullying of which the killing was part of gave Ystos, Saphir and Heimdäl time to find the Noob guild before her team got arounf killing them.]]
* PlayerKilling: Well, she's the leader of the guild specialized in the activity after all.
* PlayingWithFire
* PrimAndProperBun
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: In team Amaras.
* TeamKiller: She has no qualms about killing a bunch of other Coalition players in an attempt to deal decent damage to Tabris.

!!Dark Avenger
->Class: Assassin
->Real life name : Antoine Gibbs

-->Played by : Rodolphe Toucas

The most feared Player Killer of all ''Horizon''. After getting accidentally beaten by Sparadrap or having someone else keep him for doing him any harm several times, he has gotten convinced that his one-sided [[FriendlyEnemies Friendly Enemy]] attitude is part of a subtle strategy meant to destabilize his opponents. As a consequence, he's half-way between fearing Sparadrap and considering him a rival of some sorts.

----
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: He has the kind of job where this is likely to develop and is seen singlehandedly [[spoiler:stopping both a bank robbery and a suicide attempt]] ''while walking home from his workplace'' in the comic.
* ContinuityCameo: Reduced to that in the novels, where he's mentionned twice.
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:At least until Sparadrap ruined his reputation.]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide]]: [[spoiler:Actually just left the game, but illustrated it by having his avatar jump off a cliff. Précieux treated the whole thing as if where an actual suicide, including asking him to not jump and promising to avenge him one the act is done.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: His stroyline exists in part because it's apparently impossible for him to grasp the idea that a player from another faction is geuninely trying to be friendly to him, though Spardrap's strange mix of clumsiness and luck isn't really helping in the present case.
* FanOfThePast: Implied when putting his early 20th century style interior and the fact that he's palying in the low-technology faction of ''Horizon'' together.
* FreudianExcuse: The YetAnotherChristmasCarol Episode reveals he was mocked by other players at his debuts, leading him to become a Player Killer.
* [[spoiler:InspectorLestrade]]: In real life [[spoiler:he's the police inspector tasked with getting Robert Dumoulin (Master Zen) back in jail. He's also intimately convinced that Sparadrap is smarter than he looks]].
* LickedByTheDog: Sparadrap likes him and Antoine's profession hints that he may actually be a good person using the Dark Avenger persona to blow off steam.
* TheMentor: To Précieux.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* PlayerKilling
* [[spoiler:PutOnABus[=/=]LongBusTrip]]: [[spoiler:Got fired from his guild due to his superiors suddenly getting fed up with the situation and quit the game when the actor playing him had to move to China.]]
** [[spoiler:BackForTheFinale[=/=]TheBusCameBack]]:[[spoiler:One of the things seen during the Season 5 final speech are him and Sparadrap having their fist duel during which Sparadrap is aware that they're having a fight. He's also announced to appear in the movie.]]
* RightForTheWrongReasons: When asked why an elite player would act like Sparadrap, one of the explanations he offers is that he could be a spy for the Justice guild. Given the position held by Sparadrap's avatar-borrowing brother (who's heavily implied to be Justice's main source of information about the Noob guild), he's technically right. Not to mention that his actual opponent was Sparadrap's brother three times (once in the webseries, twice in the comic).
* RoyalRapier
* VillainDecay: Played straight when in comes to Sparadrap, but he's also shown to give Arthéon difficulty. The phenomenon is also happening InUniverse, but the consequences don't become visible until Season 4.
* VillainousBreakdown: Sparadrap causes him to loose it more and more as the story goes on.
* WrongGenreSavvy : He clearly knows of ObfuscatingStupidity and BewareTheSillyOnes and sees Sparadrap's behaviour towards him through that filter, but is just as ignorant of SeeminglyProfoundFool. That makes him get his own role wrong, thinking he's the guy who figured out Sparadrap is more than he seems while he's actually the mistaker side of the MistakenForBadass trope.
** He gets a few GenreSavvy moments, notably by attacking someone else if Sparadrap isn't alone when he runs into him or promising a reward to whoever kills him on a battlefield.

!!Précieux
->Class : Mage

-->Played by : Xavier Picchi

Dark Avenger's student who stays loyal to him despite his cumulating mishaps and is frequently seen acting as an assisstant to other Coalition players. He has broken his microphone by the time Season 2 starts and uses the text chat function to speak.

----
* [[spoiler:AvengingTheVillain]]: [[spoiler:He dedicates himself to avenge Dark Avenger after he left the game by trying to prove that Sparadrap actually is a good player.]]
* BlackMage
* ContinuityCameo: Shares Dark Avenger's second one in the novels.
* OnlyFriend: To Dark Avenger.
* [[spoiler:SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute]]:[[spoiler:Even if his motive is vengeance, it's quite obvious that he inherited the storyline that was meant for Dark Avenger before he had to be written out of the webseries.]]
* TalkingWithSigns
* UndyingLoyalty: He's the only one to stay respectful and loyal to Dark Avenger, even after his humiliation from Sparadrap.
* TheVoiceless: Due to his microphone being broken.

!!Papy PK (Grandpa PK)

-->Played by : Yves Jarnet

Quite possibly the senior member of the Player Killer guild, but might as well be part of Gaea Worshipper's guild in terms of beliefs.

----
* BadassGrandpa: Supplementary material hints that he's bouncing in and out of the end of the top ten player list.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He has the stereotypical sweet old man personality, but the comic shows he knows how to fight.
* CoolOldGuy: He deserves the title just for being an old guy playing MMORPG.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Both in the webseries and comic, he thanks Gaea for her "defection" of the Empire long before Gaea Worshipper's guild is even known to exist. He also either mentions that she has many fans in the Coalition (webseries) or the rumors that she's actually TheMole (comic).
* MiniatureSeniorCitizen: Depicted as such in the comic.
* TechnologicallyBlindElders: An aversion, given that he seems to be handling the game much better than Sparadrap.

!Gaea Worshipper's Guild
Season 3 events caused Gaea to get a few fans in the Coalition, including the creation of guild of [[BitCharacter Bit Characters]] who are conviced that she was TheMole for the Coalition all along and admire her "accomplishments". [[spoiler:Gaea's Face Heel Turn was possible because of its existence]].

!!Meuhmeuh
->Class : Assassin (novel 4) or warrior (Season 5 equipment)

-->Played by : Serwan Melk

The player who frequently shows up to (quite inefficiently) help Gaea in early Season 4.

----
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: He's willing to protect Gaea from any threat, including other Coalition players. [[spoiler:The issue got resolved as of episode 5 of Season 4, however]].
* MauveShirt: The guild has around a dozen members (maybe more), yet he's the only clearly recurring one.

!![[spoiler:Gaea]]
->Class : [[spoiler:Summoner]]
->Guild position : [[spoiler:Short-lived Guild Master]]

-->Played by : [[spoiler:Anne-Laure Jarnet]]

[[spoiler:After a too big reputation deficit made her loose her Empire affiliation, she decided to join the guild and made the Coalition her new faction in the process. She however leaves soon after joining, upon discovering that Amaras has 100 000 credit tax on Coalition guilds and that her new subordinates aren't even capable of credit farming without her direct supervision.]]

----
* [[spoiler:AdrenalineMakeover]]: [[spoiler: At the end of season 4 she gets a dark outfit complete with a scepter. Until that time she didn't have weapons and her early clothes were modest.]]
* [[spoiler:ArsonMurderAndAdmiration]]: [[spoiler:When she tried to complain about the tax Amaras has on Coalition guilds, she ended up telling him that coercing a whole faction into collecting credits for him was a genius idea.]]
* [[spoiler:DoubleAgent]]: [[spoiler:She pretends to be one around the guild. Sparadrap points out it's technically true since she has two avatars in different factions by Season 5.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilCostumeSwitch]]: [[spoiler:Technically averted, but her reaching level 100 post Face Heel Turn had the new outfit she got for the occasion only be worn after she joined the Coalition.]]
** [[spoiler:DarkIsEvil]]: [[spoiler:Despite actually being blue, the new outfit has a bigger dark surface than the old one.]]
** [[spoiler:RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver]]: [[spoiler:Her movie costume is more appropriate for her new affiliation.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelRevolvingDoor]]: [[spoiler:Within her fist half-season in the Coalition, she did more or less of an Enemy Mine in favor of her former guildmates twice. As of the fourth novel and Season 5, she regularly joins the New Noob Guild as Gaëa.]]
* [[spoiler:GenreSavvy]]: [[spoiler:After winning the duel aganist Omega Zell, a rematch is out of the question for her.]]
* [[spoiler:HonoraryTrueCompanion]]: [[spoiler:Gaea Worshipper's can be considered to be her Coalition guild even after she technically leaves it.]]
* MagicStaff
* MysticalHighCollar
* [[spoiler:PeoplePuppets]]
* [[spoiler:PlayingTheVictimCard]]: [[spoiler:She basically does this when she tells Justice about her debt to Amaras]].
* [[spoiler:StillTheLeader]]: [[spoiler:A variation according to the novels and a webseries in that she still has the guild's members pretty much under her orders despite having technically abandonned them and made someone else the official leader in the process. That makes sense since they were protecting her before he formally joined the guild.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: Sparadrap's brains, [[spoiler:Golgotha's dedidcation to protect her]], the early Noob guild's team spirit and little to non-existent sense of initiative sum up the rest of the guild well. And that's being nice.
** [[spoiler:Amazingly, she admits herself her Worshippers' Guild is even ''worse'' than the Noob guild.]]
* [[spoiler:TakeAThirdOption]]: [[spoiler:Deconstructed. When given the choice between paying the tax Amaras has on Coalition guilds out of her own pocket as a Guild Master duty, having her incompetent suborbdinates come up with the money, or having her avatar locked up in a cell for not paying, she decides to leave the guild. It however soon turns out that leaving her guild just to escape her duties keeps her from ever joining another Coalition guild.]]
* [[spoiler:TeamKiller]]: [[spoiler:She accomplished her Face Heel Turn by killing members of the Noob guild while in a pick-up group with Meuhmeuh and another member of the guild.]]
* [[spoiler:TookALevelInBadass]]: [[spoiler:She was on par with Omega Zell during their duel and even won it.]]


!Other Coalition Players
!!Ash
->Real life name : Definitely ''not'' something Chinese

-->Played by : Phanat Pak

The clearly asian gold famer from whom Level100!Arthéon bought credits before being banned and an old friend of Tenshirock, whose plans he somethimes has trouble understanding. When called a "Chinese farmer" (litteral meaning of the French equivalent to "gold farmer"), [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne he takes offense to the "chinese" part]], because he isn't actually Chinese. [[spoiler:He is, on the other hand, one of Spectre's former teammates]]

----
* BareFistedMonk: With no weapon of his own, it's all he has if he actually needs to fight.
* CatchPhrase: "I am not ''chinese''".
* TheConfidant: He suprisingly subverts this trope. At first look, Tenshirock is always telling him about his plans in the early part of the story and the different media depict various levels of VillainousFriendship with him. Then in Season 5, it turns that Ash has been gravitating around Tenshirock for ''several years'' precisely in hope to finding out the reason for which he had left their former guild to become a hacker [[spoiler:and had gotten Spectre to quit the game]].
* DragonWithAnAgenda: "Closest thing Tenshirock has to a Dragon" would be more appropriate. His customer pool would be drastically reduced if any of Tenshirock's plans ever worked while, in turn, the banishment of his customers by Game Masters serve Tenshirock's cause. The fact that they're old friends seems to be the only reason they don't get in each other's way.
** He's more of TheDragon to Tenshirock in the comic, where they seem to be getting along better.

[[folder:ORDER PLAYERS]]
!Relic Hunter Guild
An Order guild made of [[spoiler:people Master Zen met in jail and during his escape]] that becomes a recurring {{Griefer}} to the Noob guild in Season 3.

!![[spoiler:Master Zen]]
->Class :[[spoiler: Mage]]
->Guild position :[[spoiler: Nuker / Guild Master]]

-->Played by : [[spoiler: Lionel Tagliavini]]

His part in the Season 3/Novel 3/Comic 7 WhamEpisode events permitted him to be guaranteed that the Coalition would never bother his guild, permitting him to fully focus on his main objective : [[spoiler: dragging the Noob guild down]].

----
* [[spoiler:AccidentalMurder]]
* [[spoiler:AxCrazy]]: [[spoiler:Or at least claims to be so. He claims to want to kill people in real life but has never gone further than kidnapping in the webseries. Actually shown in the comic, where the step between trying to get the Noob guild back and ruining its in-game life involved trying to run over Kevin in a car and throwing a grenade at Morgan's car.]]
* [[spoiler:BadBoss]]: [[spoiler:Confirming what was hinted at in Seasons 1 and 2, he went up to having his guildmates take turns day and night to help his new avatar level up after Judge Dead banned his first (Order) one because of the video incident.]]
* [[spoiler:BlackMage]]
* CaughtOnTape: Gloating about his part in the Wham Episode events in front of Gaea isn't a good idea.
* TheChessmaster: Basically responsible for the Season 3 / third novel / comic 7 WhamEpisode.
** TheDogWasTheMastermind: Only the webseries and comic storylines bothered to tell the audience that he was [[spoiler:out of jail]] some amount of time ''before'' the whole thing happened. In the novel storyline, he's an aversion of OffscreenInertia.
* [[spoiler:CircularReasoning]]: [[spoiler:Omega Zell once suggested he should have something better to do than bothering the Noob guild. His response was to point out that he was an escaped convinct, couldn't leave his (actually Nazetrîme's) place without risking being caught and hence needed something to keep him busy during the day. Trying to get the guild back was the reason he escaped from jail in the first place.]]
* [[spoiler:DisproportionateRetribution]]: [[spoiler:He's hinted to have chosen to post the video from Gaea's computer just because of a single time she made the enemy running after her attack him instead. The video posting itself is pretty much stated to have meant to make the Noob guild's reputation even worse.]]
* EvilLaugh: He's prone to this in the comic.
* [[spoiler:FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome]]: [[spoiler:When Arthéon came to find him in Season 4, he had just managed to genuinely elimitate his anger after working on it with Elyx for months. Getting accused of having sent Kary to Arthéon when he actually didn't know her caused him to snap back.]]
* [[spoiler:HairTriggerTemper]]
* [[spoiler:HazyFeelTurn]]: [[spoiler: Since he was already plotting against the Noob guild in Season 2 (during which he was part of the Empire), the switch to the Order didn't change a single thing when it came to his intentions towards them. All it really did was give him the liberty to implement a plan that had an impact the whole Empire without being part of the collateral damage]].
* [[spoiler:NotMeThisTime]]: [[spoiler:Kary seemed likely to have something to do with him, but he didn't recognize the name when Arthéon told it.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: See CaughtOnTape.
* [[spoiler:SirSwearsALot]]: [[spoiler:Even lampshaded by Couette. Toned down in the other media compared to the webseries]].

!![[spoiler:Nazetrîme]]
->Class : Cartomancer

-->Played by : [[spoiler: Floria Noel]]

----
* DeathDealer
* [[spoiler:AMatchMadeInStockholm]]
* [[spoiler:SignificantAnagram]]: [[spoiler:Lost In Translation, even on the present page. "Master Zen" is "Maître Zen" in French.]]
* MadLove: For her Guild Master, who is aware of it and shows to be flatterd by it in front of the Noob guild. The comic reveals that his actual feelings about it are along the lines of "That's nice, now please stay away from me".

!!Elyx
->Class : Druid
->Guild position : Healer

-->Played by : Alexia Sireuille

[[spoiler: A woman Master Zen met during his jail time, who escaped as the same time as him and knows a few tricks to keep his hair-trigger temper under control. According to the comic, she was staying at the pysch ward of his jail]].

----
* OnlySaneMan: Backstory set aside, she seems to be the best adjusted member of the group.
* TeamMom: She's quite reactive to [[spoiler:calming down Master Zen when he seems about to have an outburst]] and is seen shutting up Valentin once or twice.
* YouDoNOTWantToKnow: Invokes this when Valentin asks how she managed to [[spoiler:escape the jail's phych ward]] in the comic.

!!Valentin
->Class : Warrior
->Real life name : Valentin

-->Played by : Nicolas Curty

A CasanovaWannabe [[spoiler:and Master Zen's former cellmate who took advantage of his escape tunnel to get out of jail himself]] who took a certain interest in Ivy. Also member with the less screentime.

----
* BeCarefulWhatYouSay: Trying to pick up the series GadgeteerGenius by telling her she must be a bomb in real life : [[TemptingFate Bad idea]].
* CasanovaWannabe: He goes up to asking Ivy ''if she has a webcam'' despite the fact that she's clearly not interested. The novels, the comic and Season 4 finale also indicate that he regularly tries to seduce random female players, sometimes while the guild is in the middle of something else.
* DumbBlonde
* TheLoad: Hinted to be this to the guild, due to constantly trying to pick up female players and [[spoiler:being the only member capable of making Master Zen angry on a daily basis]], possibly making him Relic Hunter's equivalent to Sparadrap. Interestingly, pre-{{Flanderization}} Sparadrap was hinted to be oblivious to sexuality, notably by thinking that "gay" means "jolly", suggesting Gaea to try a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit on because it had good stats according to the merchant and not seeing the problem with the dad is a priest + having a young brother equation ; that almost puts the two in EvilCounterpart territory.

!Other Order Players
!!Spectre

--> ''"For me, ''Horizon'' is a science. A science in which I'm the only one with a one hundered percent mastery."''

->Class : Necromancer of the Eternal

-->Played by : Patrice Blanc

Amaras's master who got in the mood to start playing again with the Order's introduction. Is currently letting his former student and Fantöm prepare for a battle during which he expects to fight and beat them both at the same time to show the world that he's still the best ''Horizon'' player.

----
* TheAce: For the Order.
* {{Badass}}: Well, we ''are'' talking about the guy who trained Aramas.
* BaldOfAwesome[=/=]BaldOfEvil
* ChekhovMIA: In the novels : mentionned in the second, showed up the third.
* CooperationGambit : [[spoiler: When Fantöm signlehandedly beat the Source of Chaos for the second time, he owed his survival to a recently added explosion only to Spectre's help. The explantation given was that he couldn't stand to se him fail so close to his goal. The third novel reveals he was secretly filming Fantöm's progression to be able to show the public that he really is a good player and make his future victory against him even more spectacular]].
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]: How the battle against Fantöm and Amaras ended for him.
* HazyFeelTurn: Used to be in the Coalition.
* HyperAwareness: [[spoiler:The fact that it's due to low latent inhibition just like a certain ''Prison Break'' character is a plot point in the webseries storyline. Tenshirock's wife had the same condition and he was able to diagnose it via playing.]]
* InTheHood: When he pulled TheWorfEffect on Ystos in the webseries.
* LivingLegend: Explicitly said to be this on ''Horizon''.
* TheMentor: To Amaras.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Explictly called this in the novel version of the Centralis battle, as he kept Amaras from joining his teammates on an important battle against Fantöm's team.
* UltimateGamer386: The guy could almost put Fantöm and Amaras in an OvershadowedByAwesome position, he definitely deserves the title.
* WorthyOpponent: To Fantöm, to the point of slipping into FoeRomanceSubtext.

!!Kary
->Class : Druid

-->Played by : Laura Fondacci

Arthéon's girlfriend in Season 4. Little is known of her aside from the fact that she shares his interest in the game's background and his dream to discover a unique object. Sparadrap hates her for keeping Arthéon away from the guild.

----
* TheGhost: She doesn't appear in the fourth novel, but she's a notable conversation and InnerMonologue subject in the first part of it.
* LoveAcrossBattlelines: With Arthéon, of course. [[spoiler:Season 4 finale however hints towards her not taking the relationship seriously and seeing it as a roleplay element.]]
* MeaningfulName: The fact that her name sounds just like the French word for a tooth cavity has been pointed out twice. [[spoiler:She triggered the RageBreakingPoint that eventually lead Arthéon to disband the Noob guild.]]
* [[spoiler:MoralityChain]]: Given how Arthéon reacted to [[spoiler:her giving more importance to a game-wide event than to their wedding]], she apparently became a milder version of that without anyone noticing while they were together.
* [[spoiler:RunawayBride]]: [[spoiler:More like left Arthéon at the altar because she preferred discovering new game content over finalising the in-game marriage that she was taking less seriouly than him]].
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Downplayed, as she bonded with Arthéon over common interest in the game background and dreams of finding a unique item. However, nothing of her life before meeting Arthéon is known, outside of the fact that she somehow knows Spectre. And again, he could have been the one who approached her given the circumstances in which it's revealed.

[[folder:OTHER ''HORIZON'' USERS]]
!!Judge Dead
->Real life name : Théodore Saquebien

-->Played by : Lucas Robert (for portrayal of Théodore and his former player avatar)

The Game Master who banned Arthéon's level 100 character and shows up whenever a Game Master request is made. Strictly by the book, he enjoys banning avatars that break the rules. Also happens to be the head Game Master [[spoiler:and Tenshirock's son]].

----
* AscendedFanboy: He was a player before becoming Game Master.
* [[spoiler:BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor[=/=]CreateYourOwnVillain]]: [[spoiler:"Hey dad, I know I've been a bratty son, but could you do me one last favor? Log on with that cheezy avatar of yours so I can have a little fun banning it and put you back in your place as a boring old geezer."]]
* [[spoiler:BigNo]]:[[spoiler:He didn't react very well to finding out that his father was playing ''Horizon'' also.]]
* BlackCloak: TheGrimReaper style. Actually a very dark purple.
* ByTheBookCop: His judgement of player's actions is based on a simple dichotomy : whether they respect the game chart or not. It leads to hilarious situations such as letting Golgotha insult Master Zen because the name she calls him isn't a chart-recognized insult. This is subverted in the overall story given the presence of SecretKeeper a little further down.
* DoNotCallMePaul: His real name got revealed when Donteuil logged in to tell him they needed to speak urgently during the WhamEpisode. His first reaction was to insist on being called Judge Dead.
* EmoTeen: In real life. His style is called "{{Goth}}" when he's first seen, but his actual look in both the novels and webseries fits EmoTeen better; the term ended up being used in the webseries Season 5 making-of. He can also be excused for having part of the attitude that comes with it since his job ''has'' to come with quite frustrating moments, [[spoiler:he he still misses his dead mother and his father's idea of trying to reconnect with him is besting him in activities that interest him]].
* EvilLaugh: He's not actually evil, but he enjoys delivering a psychopath-like laugh.
* GuyLiner: Part of his real life EmoTeen style.
* HangingJudge: Arthéon considers him to be this.
* InTheHood
* [[spoiler:InferioritySuperiorityComplex]]: [[spoiler:It turns out that while trying to get him interested in something else than MMORPG, Tenshirock had built a pattern of being better than him at anything they did together. Understandably, he wasn't happy when Tenshirock's try at ''Horizon'' had him end up among the top three players and in Spectre's roster. He didn't take finding out he was the hacker that kept breaking into the game well either.]]
* JudgeJuryAndExecutioner
* LargeHam: Let's just say he takes his role as a Game Master ''very'' seriously.
* [[spoiler:MissingMom]]: More relevant to the story than Sparadrap's implied case.
* [[spoiler:MoralityPet]]: [[spoiler:For better and for worse, Tenshirock does care about him.]]
* [[spoiler:NoHeroToHisValet]]: [[spoiler:The "being family" variant if the reason for which Tenshirock has zero respect for his authority as a Game Master.]]
* RulesLawyer: Very likely to be part of his job description. Even moreso in the novel version, where Donteuil mentions he actually ''wrote'' the current version of the game's chart.
* SecretKeeper: The way he deals with [[spoiler:the Fantöm issue]] shows he was aware of the situation before it got leaked.
* ShoutOut: His name and behaviour are an obvious spoof of ComicBook/JudgeDredd. He even said "I am the law" at some point in the webseries.
* [[spoiler:SoreLoser]]: It turns out that he's a multiple offender in Season 5.

!!Tenshirock
->Real life name : [[spoiler:Philippe Saquebien]]

-->Played by : Pierre-André Grasseler

A hacker who wants to get people to stop playing MMORPG and go back to real life via multiple forms of in-game reality warping, but none of his plans have worked so far. The fact that Gaea would do anything for credits, the fact that Sparadrap gave him the idea for one of his plans and his frequent urge to punish Omega Zell for playing too long make him FriendlyEnemies with the Noob guild. He's also an old friend of Ash's [[spoiler:, one of Spectre's former teammates and Judge Dead's father]].

----
* AmbiguouslyGay: One of his big favorites along with forced dancing is stripping male avatars to their underwear. Those who ''really'' piss him off have both happening at the same time. He sometimes stays to watch and seems to quite frequently time things so [[YaoiFangirl Gaea]], known for making videos, can enjoy them. [[spoiler:The fact that he's Judge Dead's father]] indicates that he may actually be straight.
* AntiVillain: He's a WellIntentionedExtremist with his own standards and has no personnal hate for the protagonists.
* [[spoiler:ArchnemesisDad]]:[[spoiler:To Judge Dead.]]
* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: May be blending in because of the neogician's (Ivy's class) existence. Quite obvious in the webseries due to only two technology-related characters appearing in it at all, less in the novel and comic in which the SchizoTech is more visible.
* BadassLongcoat
* ClarkKenting: Implied with TheReveal about him. He hasn't changed his OnlineAlias between his actual gaming avatar and his hacker one and the webseries shows no sign of him using a voice-altering microphone. [[spoiler:Judge Dead]] knows who was behind Tenshirock the Coalition player. However, this very same person is shown to not have figured out who Tenshirock the Hacker is.
* CoolShades[=/=]SinisterShades
* CoolSword
* TheCracker: Though a very sympathetic version of it.
* [[spoiler:EvenEvilHasLovedOnes]]
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even A Hacker Has Standards]]: He draws a line at publicly revealing information that he considers too sensitive, even if it would make many people leave ''Horizon''.
* DefectorFromDecadence: He [[spoiler:first]] seems to have truly started his crusade after visiting [[spoiler:Spectre]]'s home and finding it empty oustide of what was strictly necessary for surviving, playing ''Horizon'' and planning strategies. [[spoiler:Subverted, as his gaming avatar existed as an attempt to undestand his son's world in the first place.]]
* FriendlyEnemies: With the Noob Guild; he considers them sympathetic, occasionnaly talks with them and eventually gives up having them leaving the game when he realizes they cause so much damage that they are much more useful to him when they are staying on the game.
** This is restricted to Gaea in the comic and their business partnership is a suprise to the rest of the guild. The fact that Tenshirock has done them no harm so far is due to the fact that Gaea negociated a immunity for everyone except Omega Zell.
* InvoluntaryDance: Seems to have a soft spot for doing this to avatars as a means of trying to get people to stop playing.
* [[spoiler:TheLostLenore]]: [[spoiler:His wife's death is a major factor in his and Judge Dead's current situation.]]
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather]]: Yes, he actually said the line to [[spoiler:Judge Dead]] in an in-game flash-back.
* MonsterProtectionRacket: He used to do a mundane variation with his real life job, by hacking computers of local businesses by night and "resolving the problem" by day.
* MultilayerFacade: Played with. An episode has him give Gaea his sunglasses, only to have a new pair on by the time she looks up to see what he looks like without them.
* [[spoiler:OpenMindedParent]]: [[spoiler:He qualifies when compared to Arthéon's mother. He actually tried to find out more about the game his son was playing, gave having his own character a try and even made it to the top three before revealing his identity in-game. Judge Dead's reaction to this was retire as a ''Horizon'' player. See the InferioritySuperiorityComplex entry on Judge Dead's sheet for further details.]]
* RealityWarper: When it comes to in-game reality, at least.
* [[spoiler:RecruitingTheCriminal]]: Considered in Season 5 finale, but refused as he's come to enjoy hacking [[spoiler:and he thinks his son may get bored without a decent challenge]].
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Judge Dead is his son and the person he's actually trying to drive away from ''Horizon''.]]
* SpeakOfTheDevil[=/=]CallOnMe: In Season 2, Ash could have him show up by calling his name three times. Gaea is hinted to have had that possibility also, but it has never been shown to actually work since he was hiding nearby the only time she's seen trying it.
* [[spoiler:WellDoneDadGuy]]: [[spoiler:Possibly the reason for which he never considered he could be hurting his son's self-esteem by winning all the games they played together and putting himself higher in the MMORPG pecking order than him behind his back.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He sees himself as a savior to the No-Life, as he attempts to disgust them of MMORPG so they will go back to real life. Which he accomplishes by erasing their avatars, making their life impossible in the game or tricking them into being banned. Arthéon once mentionned that it has caused people from his old guild to commit suicide.

!!Charles-Antoine Donteuil

-->Played by : Fabien Peres

''Horizon's'' creator who seldom appears in the overall story.

----
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the webseries, he seems to regret what happened with [[spoiler:Fantöm's "cheating"]], leaves Judge Dead making the harsh decisions in dealing with the issue and makes amends to [[spoiler:Fantöm]] in Season 3 finale. In the novels and comic, he apparently took the harsh decisions in question himself with no second thought. Notably, the fourth novel [[spoiler:has his office completely devoid of any trace of Fantöm's time of glory and everything looking as if Amaras had never left the number one rank]].
* [[AntiHero Anti]] BigGood: As creator of the game, he's pretty much Tenshirock's opposite number in terms of ambition and the person who makes the Noob guild's story possible. His CorruptCorporateExecutive side however make him the BigGood [[AntiVillain on the same level that Tenshirock is the villain]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: A downplayed version, given that he's hinted to have [[spoiler: had people enhance Fantöm's avatar behind his back]] just to make ''Horizon'' sell better and current players spend more time on it. In the webseries this is subverted when it comes to covering up his part in it, as Judge Dead is the one to make the harsh decision of [[spoiler: blaming everything on the Locked Out Of the Loop Fantöm]].
** Played straight in the comic and novels, where he seems to not regret what he did a single bit and to be completly OK with the decision to [[spoiler:blame everything on Fantöm]].
* MinorMajorCharacter: ''The whole story'' is possible because of him. However, he only gets a couple of short (but important) scenes in the webseries. He's a little more active in the comic.
* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: He was secretly [[spoiler:getting his star player's avatar enhanced beyond what game mechanics allow for]] while an anti-MMORPG hacker that the Game Masters have trouble getting rid of was on the loose. It's well-known that these two factors mix well.

!![[spoiler:Arthéon]] of Fargöth

--> Played by : [[spoiler:Jonathan Fourcade]]

Basically a player-controlled NonPlayerCharacter who doubles as a raid-level boss who appears in Season 5. His in-game role is to assist Fargöth, one of the Sources whose ambitions are sometimes at odds with most PlayerCharacter's best interests.

----

* [[spoiler:CoolSword]]:[[spoiler:Sourcelame]]
* FrequentlyBrokenUnbreakableVow: During his interview with Donteuil, he promised that he would start permanently roleplaying next time he logged into ''Horizon''. For the rest of Season 5, he appears in about half a dozen scenes and ends up breaking character in at least four of them.
* JumpedAtTheCall: He got the job offer just around the time he was realizing that giving up on his previous commitements also left him with not much to do during the day.
* TalkingWeapon: [[spoiler:Sourcelame again.]]
* ThatManIsDead: An in-game equivalent. His avatar is actually a extremely enhanced version of the one his controller was using when he got "chosen" by Fargöth. Reinforced by the fact that his controller is acting differently than before, since permanent roleplaying is required of him [[spoiler:and he's a post-Rage Breaking Point Arthéon]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Compared to his original player avatar.
* WildCard: He's one by design, as he can temporarily ally whith players if it can help him accomplish his goal.

[[folder:IMPORTANT NON-PLAYER CHARACTERS (Multiple media)]]
!!Ardacos

-->Played by : Stéphane Beretti

The guy who runs the shop, the tarvern, the training grounds and basically any business one can expect to find in a [=MMORPG=].

----
* ManInAKilt: His training ground incarnations.
* SuperStoicShopkeeper: A variation is seen in the comic. His reaction to having a stuffed monster resurrected in his shop and said monster attacking his customers ? Trying to sell the customers healing items. When Omega Zell points it out, his aswer is that [[NoodleIncident he already sold to worse]].
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: The only difference with most characters who fall into that trope is that he has all the jobs at the same time rather than quitting one to take the other.
* YouALLLookFamiliar: He's a [[HandWave handwaved]] version of that trope. When people recognize him, he states to indeed be the same guy... who would have to be ''many'' places at the same time for that to be true.


!!Bartémulius and Nostariat

-->Played by : Philippe Cardona (Batémulius) and Florence Torta (Nostariat)

A pair of arrogant alchemists that frequently need ingredients for whatever they're preparing to be found for them or protection from some kind of danger.

----
* AltumVidetur: Whenever they talk about plants, they designate them with latin-sounding names (as a parallel to real-life scientific names).
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the sixth comic, Nostariat claims to have never heard of "Enpeecees" (say it out loud if you don't get it) while eavesdropping on a player conversation.
* TheDividual: Meant to be that, but Florence Torta not being available for shooting made Bartémulius appear alone twice in the weberies. Played straight in the novels and comic.
* EntitledBastard
* EscortMission: They get introduced as the charges of one in the webseries.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Nostariat's dress is different colors on the right and left side.
* FatAndSkinny: The comic has Nostariat be the fat one and Bartémulius the skinny one. This is also true for the actors themselves to a lesser extent.
* InsufferableGenius: And they take the bragging part Up To Eleven.
* NiceHat: Bartémulius starts wearing one in Season 3 and the sixth comic.
* PlatonicLifePartners: No indication has been given about them being siblings or a couple, leaving this as the most likely nature of their relationship.
* UngratefulBastard: One can wonder if the words "thank you" are even part of their vocabulary. The good news is that their monetary rewards seem quite decent.
* QuestGiver

!!Pironess

-->Played by : Carmen N'Guyen

The Phoenix of fire who is looking for [[spoiler: the escaped Source of Chaos]] and the QuestGiver that the Noob guild helps out during the first part of Season 4. In Season 5, members of the Justice and Roxxor main roster are sometimes seen in her company.

----
* CallASmeerpARabbit: There are also [[FourElementEnsemble Phoenixes for air, water, and earth]] according to the novels. That makes her the only whose link with the [[ThePhoenix lengendary bird]] is not completely in name only.
* ContinueYourMissionDammit: When Ystos starts chatting with other people in the middle of a questline involving her, she reapeats that the world is in great danger multiple times. When this fails, she goes silent and starts playing with the fake vines on his armour instead.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]: [[spoiler:Tabris, some random forest, Season 5 finale.]]
** [[spoiler:KilledOffScreen]]: We only know of it from Gaea pointing it out.
* [[spoiler:MauveShirt]]
* PlayingWithFire
* QuestGiver

!!Tabris

A technology-created experiment who escaped Centralis during the energy strain caused by the Empire-Coalition war of Season 3 finale. He now seems to be pursuing an obscure plan, that is known to involve killing off a quite powerful [=NPC=] and [[spoiler: setting the being that was the ''Horizon 1.0'' ultimate boss free]].

----
* BigBad: Seems to be heading towards this in the ''Horizon'' universe, especially considering he seems to have TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt in mind.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: He seems set on destroying Olydri and the total war that started in Season 4 finale is part of it according to the third novel. In the meantime, how about a HopelessBossFight or two and giving some players powerful new armour ?
* CoolMask
* NighInvulnerability: Pretty much hinted at in the third book that has him kill [[spoiler:the Coalition's leader]] and confirmed in Season 4 where [[spoiler:Fantöm's Cataclysm]] doesn't even seem to do ScratchDamage to him.

!!Jack Céparou

-->Played by : Brice Lemaire

A [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean familiar-looking pirate]] with no sense of orientation who did a [[OneSceneWonder memorable peformance]] in Season 1 and came back during the Season 4 Dungeon of Chaos arc. Also made appearances in the books and comics.

----

* CaptainErsatz: Of [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]].
* InsistentTerminology: Just like the original, he insists on being called "Captain".
* NoSenseOfDirection: The justification of his name.
* PunnyName: His last name is a homophone of "C'est par où ?" an informal way of saying "Which way is it ?" in French.

!!Moulinof

--> Played by: Eric Legrand

Bartémulius and Nostariat's mentor. At some point, his students let him get captured by the Coalition so they could escape. [[spoiler:He's currently working for the Order.]]

----
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Over the course of the second novel, the impression he gives shifts from "Poor guy, his students let the Coalition capture him so they could escape" to "Oh, ''this'' is where Bartémulius and Nostariat got that attitude of theirs.".
* TheMentor: To Bartémulius and Nostariat.
* MyGreatestFailure: Views his former students as that.
* RobeAndWizardHat: For the wizard hat part.

----
* [[spoiler:BadassPrincess]]
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Despite it having nothing to do with the quest, she seems to have a subtle reaction to being called a "grandma" by Sparadrap after he realizes her chronological age. Her going bersek when some players decide to slaughter her time-frozen companions may count also, or may actually be VideoGameCrueltyPunishment.
* LightningCanDoAnything: Including short-range teleportation.
* [[spoiler:RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething]]

----

* DecompositeCharacter: She's absent from most of Season 5 in the webseries, so her role in helping Fantöm with Spectre is divided among other players that knew Spectre's Coalition incarnation : Heimdäl, [[spoiler:Ash and Tenshirock]].
* DistaffCounterpart: She has a personality much like to Fantöm's after he [[TookALevelInKindness took his level in kindness]] and Gaea as a fangirl.
* TheGhost: There isn't even an actor casted for her yet, limiting her late Season 5 appearances to people talking about her.
* [[spoiler:OddNameOut]]: [[spoiler:She's Saphir and Rubis's older sister making her alias not only a English word instead of a French one, but not gemstone related.]]
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Spectre became such a LivingLegend during his time in the Coalition that she got all but forgotten about.
* QuicklyDemotedWoman: Subverted. The first time she's mentionned makes her situation look like this (e.g. her accomplishments have been overshadowed by Spectre's and all three of her successors are male), but she later turns out to have spent her time on other online games and doing quite well for herself.
