This sheet is for characters of the ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' franchise. It's centered around the [[Series/{{Noob}} webseries]] that gave birth to the franchise, in which plot elements of the [[Literature/{{Noob}} novels]] and sometimes the [[ComicBook/{{Noob}} comics]] can show up completely resolved, and hence cause unmarked spoilers.


![[spoiler:Disbanded / New]] Noob Guild
The worst guild in ''Horizon'' in Season 1, which gets a little better later but maintains a fairly poor reputation.

!!Gaea and Gaëa

--> ''"I need lots of slaves... I mean, guildmates to achieve my final goal."''

->Main: Gaea, summoner
->Reroll: Gaëa, archer
->Guild position: Nuker (Gaea) and Distance DPS (Gaëa)
->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 accumulating as many credits (game currency) as she can, to the point that looting dead enemies behind her guildmates' 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.

* 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 negotiated 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.
* CelebrityLie: Zig-zagged. It's part of the few times she's seen trying to scam someone else than her own guildmates, except that she has dropped the names of Fantöm and Tenshirock, whom she's actually acquainted with on some of these occasions.
* 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 joins 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 goes into "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]].
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler:Gaëa the archer lets her keep a foot in the Empire.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Some fans also speculated that she was [=TheMole=] from the beginning of the series, but this is Jossed in the fourth novel.]]
* {{Fangirl}}: As one can guess, she really likes of the idea of a female former top player and is hence a big fan of Mist.
* 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 homophonous to the masculine "Gabriel".
* GoldFever
* HeroismIncentive: Both a nasty side effect and a flip side of her greed. The nasty effect is that her own guildmates sometimes have to pay her for stuff that a decent friend or guildmate would do naturally (like ''not'' running away from a battle or giving someone else a message on their behalf). The flip side is that if one can afford to give her a bunch of credits or real life money, she'll accept to do odd jobs, including some with a positive impact on the plot.
* 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]].
* InstantExpert: She manages to force Ivy into using her kamikaze ability ''right after getting the ability to use her PeoplePuppets 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]].
* ItAmusedMe: It seems like only one other thing besides money can make her do something: the opportunity to humiliate Omega Zell. Even better if she can do both at the same time.
* ItsAllAboutMe
* IWasHavingSuchANiceDream: She was quite mad when she had to wake up from a dream of Omega Zell and Fantöm having a romantic moment.
* 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 with 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
* MiserAdvisor: Regularly takes credits from the guild's common fund without ever contributing and sometimes swindles money directly from her guildmates.
* MisplacedSorrow: The first entry on JerkWithAHeartOfJerk says it all.
* MoneyFetish: {{Greed}} is without 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 passers-by 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 has a PeoplePuppets power.
* 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 a great help on the two occasions Games Masters got on her case.
* TheScrooge: Maximal hoarding of both credits and expensive items, yet acts as if she were in PerpetualPoverty.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Before Golgotha's and Couette's arrival.
** Later, Ivy changes it to 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
* SureLetsGoWithThat: This is basically her attitude towards the Guild of Gaea Admirers' belief that she's a DoubleAgent.
* SquishyWizard: Probably true of any nuker and healer in the series, but she gets special mention for using it as a 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.
* TrickArrow: She's seen using element-imbued arrows as Gaëa.
* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: In Season 3:
--> '''Gaea''': "Everyone, do what I just wrote on the discussion board."
* WelcomeBackTraitor: [[spoiler:Shown to happen in the fourth novel and implied in the webseries. Played with as Sparadrap asked her if she actually 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 have been countless since the very first time they met.
* YaoiFangirl



->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 completely 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''.

* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: His comic version has more visible {{Foreshadowing}} of his upcoming RageBreakingPoint. His debut in comic one shoes him have a moment of doubt when alone, but brush it off for the sake of maintaining his role of OnlySaneMan. In comic 7, he releases a LimitBreak he intended for a boss on bunch of {{Mook}}s while yelling at them (actually surprising Gaea) because he needed to blow off steam.
* 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.
* CynicismCatalyst:[[spoiler:Kary breaking up with him led him to question how genuine his friendship with the rest of the Noob guild was and decide it wasn't, in turn leading to his rage breaking point and its consequences]].
* DemotedToExtra: In the webseries, he's started creeping closer and closer to secondary character by being kidnapped for part of Season 2, going to 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.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: When people complained about putting him Omega Zell in charge while he was searching for Sourcelame with Kary (which qualifies for this trope in itself), his solution was to put Gaea in charge instead.
* 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 "really loving her".]]
* LoveHurts
* MyBelovedSmother: His mother is very meddling, so he had to give up social activities like sports according to the novels. She also used to make Artheon stop playing at 8.00 PM every night. She also sent him to a 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.]]
* NotGoodWithRejection: [[spoiler: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 misogyny and opportunism, and Gaea's cupidity, and after enduring Master Zen's manipulations and in real life kidnapping, Arthéon completely ''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 wiping out his former 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 managing to escape, the first thing he does is go back on ''Horizon''. Somewhat falls into ThisIsNoTimeForKnitting 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.
* WithAFootOnTheBus: The webseries version did this with him leaving for boarding school, but fortunately managing to install ''Horizon'' on the school computers on his first day there.

[[folder:Omega Zell]]
!!Omega Zell


--> ''"Honestly though, Arthéon, they let some chick run the Justice Guild! At this rate, they're going to end up with a Music/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 as far as he's concerned? The presence of a Noob and a girl (later three of them) that drags his guild's level down and his tendency to get into embarrassing situations while trying to be well liked 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 (organic 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 actually a CelebCrush. He also sides with Sparadrap when he gives liking the way his clothes look as a reason for not changing them (to something with better stats) for a long time. His sister added an extra layer by mentioning he took classical dancing when he was nine.
* BareFistedMonk: At the beginning of the webseries.
* BerserkButton: According to the first novel, the best way to make him angry is to address 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" stereotype, 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 requirements 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.
* EffeminateMisogynisticGuy: Slips into this with his misogyny combined to his AmbiguouslyGay characterization.
* 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.
* 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, and he's the one who picks up the SanityBall the few time Arthéon drops it. 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.
* {{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 mentioned 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 enthusiastic 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 the Season 4 premiere:
--> '''Omega Zell:''' Just before he logged off, [Arthéon] made me the guild leader.
** [[spoiler: It turns out Arthéon only made him interim first officer, which that enables him to manage the guild in his absence, but some Master-only actions are not allowed, such as kicking people out. And he did it mostly because Omega Zell had been pestering him about it for a while.]]
* YaoiGuys: With Fantöm, in [[YaoiFangirl Gaea's]] imagination.

!!Sparadrap and Spärädräp


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

->Main: Sparadrap, priest
->Reroll: Spärädräp, warrior
->Guild position: Healer / Self-appointed recruiter (Sparadrap), back-up tank (Spärädräp)
->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.

* TheAllegedBoss: [[spoiler:He did mature a little after taking over the guild command. However, between the character traits that have stayed the same, Ivy being the ''de facto'' second in command, Ystös' more efficient method of enforcing the rules and Golgotha remaining the guild's honorary true companion, his authority can become a big question mark.]]
* AllLovingHero: He eventually becomes more pragmatic while staying as nice and caring for other as he has always been. It the literal sense of the trope, 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.
* 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?"
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Averted. Dark Avenger and Précieux believe he's either this or ObfuscatingStupidity, 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 later of playing much better. Even later in the story, he's converging towards AllLovingHero.
* TheChosenZero: Invoked when Tenshirock arranged for him to get the hacked staff.
* CoincidentalDodge: Almost mandatory if Dark Avenger is around.
* TheCutie: He's pretty much the closest thing the franchise has to a young child.
* DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm: One of the many reasons insults directed at him fly over his head, especially considering that the people he spends the most time around use sarcasm like they breathe.
* 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.
* 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 losing 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.
* GoThroughMe: During the tournament in Season 5, he does this to protect [[spoiler:Golgotha]] from Roxana. Granted that he did this as Spärädräp, but the person he was protecting still would have kicked his ass if they were fighting each other instead of on the same side.
* 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.
* 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 attacks) 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 advantage 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.
* MadLibsCatchPhrase: "It's ____ (insert adjective) of the dead!" The "of the dead" part is GratuitousEnglish in the original language.
* 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.
* 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 conspicuously absent from his ramblings about his family and conversations with his brother.
* NaiveAnimalLover: A running gag is his inability to understand that if something attacks him, he can't make it into a pet.
* NoHeroToHisValet: In Season 3 and the second novel, he turns out to be [[spoiler:a semi-professional tennis player known to be immune to pressure]]. However, in Season 2, he stated that his father and his grandmother would rather 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.]]
* NotSoWeak: Considering that hurting people he cares about is his BerserkButton and he's an AllLovingHero...
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Averted. Dark Avenger and Précieux believe he's either this or CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass, but he's just a real moron with incredible luck.
* ParalysisByAnalysis: He's implied to be completely immune to this in the webseries and novels (pressure is mentioned 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.
* PracticalTaunt: Has one a Spärädräp.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: His warrior reroll has a feature dedicated to delivering these (as part of a PracticalTaunt) and he keeps accidentally activating it. The one-liners in themselves are always hilarious.
* RaisedByGrandparents: He often mentions his grandmother and his dad (who doesn'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 lineup 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 activating his PracticalTaunt as his warrior.
* SimpleMindedWisdom: [[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.]]
* SmartBall:
** He gets it on two notable 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 surprisingly 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.
* StaffOfAuthority: [[spoiler:His staff doubles as that in the later part of the series]].
* StockYuck: When he resorts to a badly planned attempt to kidnap Stanislas/Arthéon to get him to care for the guild again, he admits having 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: In earlier installments, the guild is stuck with him because they can't find another healer and when they eventually did, the girl wasn't much better at the job than him and seldom showed up. 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.
* 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.

->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 fulfills Omega Zell's idea of female video game players. The second Noob 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: She started off with enough in common with Sparadrap 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 shares quite a few 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 surprised of how well Sparadrap is managing things in his absence compared to Omega Zell and Gaea (who both had a 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.
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: She started off with enough in common with Sparadrap 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.
* IBrokeANail: Overlapped with MinorInjuryOverreaction. She was considering ''going to the hospital'' before Arthéon told her it wasn't that serious.
* IceMagicIsWater: She mentions that she can produce an ice shield in a webseries episode.
* 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 separation from Sparadrap being a little slower. She has among other things chosen to heal Gaea's summon creature over Omega Zell "because it's much cuter" and asked her guildmates to not hit a boss too hard because he happened to be a possessed good guy.
* 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 (the actor playing Sin in the movies is the current junior of the cast).
* WardrobeWound: She's occasionally seen complaining about her outfit being damaged.
* WhiteMage: Even started out wearing white before moving to blue in Season 4.

->Class: Neomancer (used to be translated as neogician)
->Guild position: Second nuker / Distance DPS
->Real Life Name: Fanny Blanchet

-->Played by: Johanna Fournier

SleepyHead par excellence, she frequently loses track of what's happening 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 catatonic 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 that it keeps her from using magic (implicitly to keep the class from becoming a GameBreaker).
* CharacterExaggeration: Just read the novel in which she's introduced. Yes, that's her building something other than a bomb in the underground forest scene.
* CompositeCharacter: [[spoiler:On a meta level. After Arthéon, Omega Zell and Gaea leave, she's both the member of the team with the most sanity and game background knowledge (a trait of Arthéon's) and the Lancer who's following the footsteps of a famous player (a trait of Omega Zell's). In addition to these, her personality in general is basically how Gaea would turn out if she had better moral standards]].
* 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
* {{Fangirl}}: Towards Mist, who's the reason she's playing a neomancer and wants to reach their legendary class according to the comic.
* FlashStep: The most frequent way her SuperSpeed is depicted.
* GadgeteerGenius: Aside from one occurrence in the second novel, she uses it to build bombs.
* TheGunslinger
* InformedFlaw: Happened twice. Upon her introduction, Arthéon mentioned 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 up being present so often that she functionally became a full-time member of the guild while Couette and Golgotha were both seen less frequently than her. 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 happening off screen is supposed to be the reason the guild breaks its record of failed quests during Season 4.
** 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 first two-thirds of the finale.
* 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 other 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."
* TheLancer: [[spoiler: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 with 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]].

!Former[=/=]Short Lived members of Noob Guild

[[folder:Master Zen]]
!! 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 went horribly wrong. He eventually escapes only to get the guild back, then to make its members' lives hell when it fails.

* AccidentalMurder: In a fit of rage after Sparadrap's screw-up, he actually threw his computer out of his apartment window... which landed on an old lady a few floors below and killed her.
* AxCrazy: Or at least he claims to be so; while he is definitely crazy and does regularly threaten to find other people in real life and kill them, he has yet to actually do it. He still does kidnap and hold people prisoner, though.
* BlackMage
* ChekhovMIA: Gets jointly mentioned 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]].
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Subverted in the Season 2 finale. When he shows up, Arthéon assumes he was this. Master Zen, however, immediately 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 intentional, 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.
* 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 equipment 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 ''least'' zen character in the whole franchise.
* KnightOfCerebus: His appearance contributes a lot to the series's CerebusSyndrome as previous villains were no longer dangerous once logged out of the game. His absence from the comic outside Arthéon's flashback [[spoiler: until comic number 7]] seems to contribute to it starting out both with a LighterAndSofter tone and chronologically after Season 2.
* MeanBoss: 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 to have him as leader again.
* SirSwearsALot
* SuddenNameChange: His player's first name is Alexandre in the first novel, but is changed to Robert in the second and the comics.


->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: Appropriately [[spoiler:seen again as an enemy]] after leaving the guild.
* EvilAllAlong
* TheMole

[[folder:Grobin des Doigts]]
!!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 a short time after that, buys credits from him without 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

[[folder:Season 3 temporary recruit (Spoilers)]]

->Class: Elementalist

-->Played by: Fabien Fournier

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.

* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:Later subverted]].
* ClearMyName: 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
* JackOfAllStats: An 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.
* {{NEET}}: He's pretty much freeloading off his parents during that period.
* SuddenHumility: Both turning out to have been illegally enhanced without knowing it and having to start over again had quite an effect on him.
* TemporarySubstitute: 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.
* WalkingSpoiler: The reason he spent time in the Noob guild is tightly linked to one of the story's big twists.
* WeakButSkilled: 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.

->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 completely 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 planning for them no matter how complex they are.
* 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 becomes 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. He also spent a big chunk of ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'' unable to control his avatar.
* 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.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop:[[spoiler: When it comes to the enhancements given to his avatar each time he got close to losing 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 is 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 have developed as a way to tell people "Yes, I heard what you told me, but I have nothing special to say about it".
* 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.]]
* 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.


--> ''"If I gave a second chances to every loser like [Omega Zell], we'd be at the bottom of the rankings."''

->Class: Paladin
->Guild position: Preemptive healer / Buffer / Admissions
->Real life name: Eléna Pénélope Gonagal

-->Played by: Amandine Train

In charge of the Justice guild's admissions, she will only let the very best join, going as far as 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]].
* {{Hypocrite}}: What generally comes out of the details about her real life. She has a job running an Internet café with her sisters [[spoiler:and apparently has a boyfriend from whom she got pregnant around Season 5, having given birth by the time the first movie rolls around]].
* 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.
* ProperlyParanoid: When she notices an applicant also has a Coalition avatar, she outright asks him is he's a spy. The applicant was T-Man using an Empire Avatar.
* RealNameAsAnAlias: The public and her guildmates know her player as "Pénélope", which is her real middle name.
* 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
* SuddenNameChange: Subverted by WordOfGod. Max Middle called her player "Pénélope" in his interview in Season 3. Fast forward to her DayInTheLife in comic 10, her sisters are calling her "Eléna". WordOfGod eventually explained that "Pénélope" is her middle name, which she uses a her public alias (including with her guildmates).
* 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 and Ystös
->Main: Ystos, druid (Justice guild)
->Reroll: Ystös, assassin (Noob guild)
->Guild position: Healer (Classic) (Ystos; Justice) and DPS (Ystös; Noob)
->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, making him the first member of Justice to warm up to the guild's members.

* 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]].
* 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 the 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 as an assassin). In the webseries, this has led him to bursting into tears over [[spoiler:being reminded of Fantöm's absence]] and being obviously overjoyed when [[spoiler:Sparadrap reaches level 100]]. The few scenes in the comic that show him at home have him wearing context-appropriate expressions and just happening to have a calm and composed personality.
* RaisedByGrandparents: [[spoiler:Implied by the fact that he's Sparadrap's younger brother, but he never mentions the fact himself]].
* SixthRanger: A fully 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
* WhiteSheep: [[spoiler:His father is actually a mafia big wig and Thomas explicitly avoiding too much involvement in the family activities.]]
* 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]].

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

* BerserkButton: Being someone who got to the top via hard work, he hates cheating, whether it's from other people or being accused of it. [[spoiler:He was very angry at Fantöm before the latter was proven innocent.]]
* BlackMage: Literal during Season 2 and in the openings.
* CaptainSmoothAndSergeantRough: He has shown to appreciate certain qualities in other people, even if they happen to otherwise be far from Justice guild material by Saphir's standards or in disgrace. In the novels, he backs up Arthéon and tells people to listen to him when he comes up with a valid strategy and praises the Noob guild for sticking to the Empire on an occasion that had ''many'' players defect from it. In Season 4, Saphir seems to consider [[spoiler:not veoting Omega Zell's entry in the guild]] as laxism on his part. Some outside canon information hints that his somewhat relaxed standards of what makes a good player are the reason Saphir is the one taking care of admissions and not him.
* 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 at 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 regard 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 therefore 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'' and leader of the game's top guild, but also 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.

->Real life name: Castorga

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

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: The webseries introduced him during the Centralis battle, which was one of the consequences of [[spoiler:Fantöm getting deleted]]. The comic introduced before the latter happened.
* ChekhovsGunman
* DeadpanSnarker: That side of him starts showing up in the movies. [[spoiler:Omega Zell]] tends to be on the receiving end of it.
* {{Fanboy}}: Turns out to be one to Mist in the comic.
* 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. 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.

[[folder:Season 4 new meat (Spoilers)]]
!!Omega Zell
->Class: Assassin > Twilight berserker
->Guild position: DPS

-->Played by: Julien Guellerin

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.

* AscendedFanboy: The mere fact that he has a second sheet in Justice says a lot.
* BlackSwordsAreBetter: He even lampshaded the fact they match his clothes.
* CombatAestheticist: 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 paraphrased as "Hey, does that mean I'll be able to strike charismatic poses without risking getting killed on the spot?"
* DualWielding
* IWasBeatenByAGirl: [[spoiler:Check Sore Loser for more info.]]
* KatanasAreJustBetter: The first loot he gets from fighting a boss at the guild's side.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Saphir is pretty much treating him the way he used to treat Sparadrap.
* TheLoad: Played with depending on the storyline:
** In the webseries, 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.]]
* SoreLoser: [[spoiler:How could he take losing to Gaea well?]]
* TookALevelInBadass: His status as The Load only lasts 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. Taken even further when [[spoiler:he gets a Twilight class]].
* YouGetMeCoffee: Saphir likes giving him menial tasks when the group isn't dungeon crawling.

->Real life name: Anna Gonagal

-->Played by: Petulia

Saphir's younger sister who replaces her for the last few episodes of Season 5 and during ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions''.

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: Anna is seen during Saphir's DayInTheLife from the comic version, that is shown to happen before the Centralis battle, which is the central event of Season 3 finale. Her avatar was introduced in Season 5 in the webseries.
* FamilyThemeNaming[=/=]RockThemeNaming: As you may have guessed, "saphir" and "rubis" are the French words for "sapphire" and "ruby".
* IronLady: Quite similar to Saphir in personality.
* 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. She's seen filling in for Saphir again in the first movie. Subverted as she sticks around when Saphir comes back in the second movie.
* WhamLine: She has a quite high ratio of these given her screentime. The first was at the end of Season 5 when she tells Omega Zell [[spoiler:that she and Saphir are Mist's younger sisters]] within moments of meeting him for the first time. The second is her single scene in the first movie, when she explains Saphir's absence: [[spoiler:Miss "no relationships in real life" is on maternity leave]].


-->Played by: JBX

A spy for Justice guild.

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: Comic ten has an important pre-Centralis battle conversation between Roxxor higher-ups being overheard by a hooded figure wearing a familiar black gold-trimmed robe and bearing a familiar OnlineAlias.
* [[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 pronunciation as "JB" in French and "dix" is the French word for "ten" (X in roman numerals).

->Real life name: Linda [[spoiler:Gonagal]]

-> Class: Teknögrade

Spectre's predecessor as top ''Horizon'' player. The novel storyline has her come back in the fourth one to help Fantöm prepare for his duel against Spectre and Amaras. The webseries has her join offscreen in late Season 5. The comic has her join much earlier, around the equivalent of Season 3 and the first half of the third novel.

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: She joins Justice a little before the Centralis battle in the comic, while the battle in question was long over when the novel introduced her. The live-action version has her be TheGhost as of late Season 5.
* BioAugmentation: Being an advanced neomancer and all.
* ChekhovMIA: Her first mention was in the second novel, long before she actually showed up.
* 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]]. Saphir can be added to the list, as Mist is the one who [[spoiler:fills in for Fantöm]] instead of her in the comic version.
* 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 cast for her yet, limiting her late Season 5 and first movie appearances to people talking about her.
* OddNameOut: [[spoiler:She's Saphir and Rubis's older sister, making her alias not only an 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 mentioned 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 has done quite well for herself.
* ShortHairWithTail
!Other Empire Players
->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 eighth 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 in a row stop her (remember ContinuingIsPainful in ''Horizon'' and the healer to which she has easiest access is the most incompetent in 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 whoever 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 mentioned 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 apartment 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 [[SmackOnTheBack genuinely harm the latter]]. Gaea lampshaded 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 channeling her energy into video games."
* GladHesOnOurSide: Gaea explicitly says this about her in the second novel.
* HairDecorations: She's seen wearing bow-shaped ones in Season 2 and the fifth comic.
* 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 webseries 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 a 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.
* SmackOnTheBack: Happens frequently due to her strength.
* 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!"

[[folder:Omega Zelette]]
!!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]]: Doesn't get any appearance or mention in portions of the comics and novels in which Omega Zell's family life is touched upon. Averted in the ''Le Blog de Gaea'' comic, where Camille is briefly seen.
* SchrodingersGun: The first novel has a few paragraphs 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.

->Real life name: Nadir Rafale

Nadir Rafale is a real life professional acquaintance to Kevin Lepape (Sparadrap) who loses a promotion opportunity to the latter in an early scene of ''NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions''. In ''NoobLaQueteLegendaire'', he turns out to have created an avatar on ''Horizon'' in hope to beating Sparadrap at fluxball in retaliation.

* CastFromLifespan: Nadir's secret tennis move. Using it shaves a year off his lifespan.
* ChekhovsGunman: In the first movie, Nadir seems to exist only to give Kevin an opponent.
* CooperationGambit: Sparadrap refuses to accomodate his request for a fluxball game until he's done with a certain questline, but happens to need his help for one of the quests.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Considering the purpose for which his avatar was created, the Noob guild is lucky he's a tank and that Golgotha was the person they were trying to replace.
* ForgettableCharacter: Despite their temporary cooperation in the second movie and being the one who noticed how lousy he is as a tank, Gaea doesn't remember him when she runs into him in the third movie.
* IncomingHam: How he introduces himself as Rafale.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: To tennisman [[ Rafael Nadal]].
* ThirdPersonPerson: Only from time to time, but it doesn't keep Ivy for noticing it.
* UnskilledButStrong: He got a his hands on a high-level avatar thanks to Ash, but only has a few days of actual playing experience. It shows in both his gameplay and knowledge of how things work.
* WeNamedTheMonkeyJack: An accidental inversion on his part. An early comic has Omega Zell purchase a flying mount, which he's confirmed to still have in one of the novels. That flying mount is named "Rafale" as well.

!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.

->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 all the other guilds of the Coalition and made his party out of the masters of three of the top ones.

* 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.]]
* TheLeader
* 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 the looby to 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.
* PassingTheTorch: Near the end of the first movie.
* 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.]]

->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: 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: According to the novels, he's the leader of another guild just like Roxana, but his role in the story has mostly been "being the DPS in Amaras' roster".

->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 with a YouKnowWhatYouDid-like speech. At this point, the audience knows that Amaras discovered something that made him furious and nothing more. Since the Justice main roster is LockedOutOfTheLoop on the subject, their response is basically "What the hell are you guys talking about?" Battos is the one who let Justice know that the conversation wasn't pure taunting by uttering verbatim "Strange, they don't seem to know."
* TheRoleplayer: He turns out to have at least a smidge of it in the first movie, by preferring to have messengers bring him news rather than using the guild chatroom.
* SatelliteCharacter: According to the novels, he's the leader of another guild just like Roxana, but his role in the story has mostly been "being the healer in Amaras' roster".
* TheQuietOne: His comic version has his first line of dialogue in Comic 10, despite debuting in Comic 4.
* WhiteMage

->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.

* AscendedExtra: Much more of him is seen in the movies.
* BloodKnight
* DoublePlay: Also has character in the Empire, but apparently stopped using it after it was refused entry in the Justice guild.
* RecurringExtra: In the webseries and comic.
* ServileSnarker: [[spoiler:He supports Gaea as a leader for Roxxor, but hates her as person, resulting in a lot of verbal frustration venting.]]

!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.

->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. She's just as ruthless as her positions suggests.

* 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 mentioned 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 with whom he gets genuinely 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 gave Ystos, Saphir and Heimdäl time to find the Noob guild before her team got around 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.

[[folder:Dark Avenger]]
!!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.

* BackForTheFinale:[[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]]
* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:He's also seen in the first movie.]]
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: He has the kind of job where this is likely to develop in real life 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 mentioned twice.
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:At least until Sparadrap ruined his reputation.]]
* 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 after the act is done.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: His storyline exists in part because it's apparently impossible for him to grasp the idea that a player from another faction is genuinely trying to be friendly to him, though Sparadrap's strange mix of clumsiness and luck doesn't really help in the present case.
* FanOfThePast: Implied by putting together his early 20th-century style interior and the fact that he's playing in the low-technology faction of ''Horizon''.
* FreudianExcuse: The YetAnotherChristmasCarol Episode reveals he was mocked by other players on his debut, leading him to become a Player Killer.
* 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.
* LongBusTrip: [[spoiler:From episode 2 of Season 4 to Season 5 finale]]
* TheMentor: To Précieux.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Named after [[ a famous virus writer ]].
* PlayerKilling
* PutOnABus: [[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.]]
* 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).
* 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 lose it more and more as the story goes on.

->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.

* 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.]]
* ClassyCravat: An obvious component of his renaissance nobleman style outfit.
* BlackMage
* ContinuityCameo: Shares Dark Avenger's second one in the novels.
* OnlyFriend: To Dark Avenger.
* PragmaticAdaptation: His TalkingWithSigns gimmick in the live-action versions is actually an ascended one-time gag. In the comic version, the chat function is very seldom used, so the author just has him speak like everyone else.
* SuddenlyVoiced: Manages to zig-zag this in the movies. He has his first spoken line in several years near the end of ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'', but has switched back to normal by the beginning of ''Film/NoobLaQueteLegendaire''. He drops his TalkingWithSigns ''again'' during the latter, but only because a NonPlayerCharacter BodySnatcher is involved.
* 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.

[[folder:Papy PK]]
!!Papy PK

-->Played by: Yves Jarnet

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

* BadassGrandpa: Supplementary material hints that he bounces in and out 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 the guild of Gaea Admirers 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.

!Guild of Gaea Admirers (used to be translated as 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]].

->Real life name: Hector Cow
->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. According to the ''Le Blog de Gaea'' comic, his player is part of Gabrielle's close circle as well.

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: The guild as a whole gets introduced prior to the Centralis battle, and the role of the guild's mouthpiece is moved from a random other member to him.
* BumblingSidekick: Basically Gaea's.
* ImpliedTrope: Hector's identity as Meuhmeuh's player. Hector has yet to be shown actually logging into ''Horizon'', but he shares enough physical and personality attributes with Meuhmeuh that him ''not'' being his player would be the plot twist rather than the other way around.
* InstantFanClub: While other members of the guild have been seen helping Gaea on select occasions, the cases of "helper appearing from nowhere" have so far been him alone.
* HammyHerald: Becomes one for Gaea after [[spoiler:she becomes head of Roxxor guild]].
* 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 an unspecified, presumably two-digit, number of members, yet he's the only clearly recurring one.
* SpeechImpediment: Hector, possibly due to still having braces as a university student.
* TwoAliasesOneCharacter: He seems to be maintaining this for some reason in regards to Gabrielle[=/=]Gaea. When ''Horizon'' comes up in a real life conversation, he claims to not be interested in online games at all. However, his OnlineAlias is the header of the sole comment on one of Gabrielle's unsuccesful blog posts the same day, thus excluding the possibility that he was simply introduced before he started playing. In addition, Hector has a quite bad SpeechImpediment, while Meuhmeuh is quite articulate, which indicates he may be deliberately avoiding RecognizableBySound.

[[folder:Other prominent members (Spoilers)]]
->Class: Summoner
->Guild position: Guild Master

-->Played by: Anne-Laure Jarnet

After a reputation deficit made her lose her Empire affiliation, she decided to join the guild and made the Coalition her new faction in the process. The Coalition ends up being the faction in which she excecutes the plan for which she has been saving credits for most of the webseries.

* 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.]]
* DarkIsEvil: Despite actually being blue, the new late Season 4 outfit has a bigger dark surface than the one it replaced.
* DoubleAgent: 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.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: 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.
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: 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.
* HonoraryTrueCompanion: [[spoiler:Gaea admirers can be considered to be her Coalition guild even after she technically leaves it, as its members are still wrapped around her finger.]]
* MagicStaff
* MerchantPrince: [[spoiler:Over the course of ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'', she becomes a merchant and uses the perks to become leader of Roxxor.]]
* MysticalHighCollar
* PeoplePuppets
* PlayingTheVictimCard: [[spoiler:She basically does this when she tells Justice about her debt to Amaras]].
* RankUp: [[spoiler:Becomes Roxxor's leader in ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'']]
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: The outfit she gets at the end of the first movie is more appropriate for her new affiliation.
* StillTheLeader: [[spoiler:A variation according to the novels and the 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, 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.
** Amazingly, she admits herself her Admirers' Guild is even ''worse'' than the Noob guild.
* 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 until she pays up.]]
* TeamKiller: 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.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:She was on par with Omega Zell during their duel and even won it.]]
* VileVillainLaughableLackey: With Meuhmeuh as the laughable lackey.

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

-->Played by: Phanat Pak

The clearly Asian gold famer from whom Arthéon bought credits before being banned and an old friend of Tenshirock, whose plans he somethimes has trouble understanding. When called a "Chinese farmer" (literal meaning of the French equivalent to "gold farmer"), [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne he takes offense to the "Chinese" part]], because he isn't actually Chinese.

* 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's attempting to exploit this with few results. 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 out 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]].
* ConfusionFu: This was his specialty when he was a more legitimate player.
* 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 serves Tenshirock's cause. The fact that they're old friends seems to be the only reason why 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.
* KnowledgeBroker: This aspect of his trade becomes very plot-relevant in late Season 5 and the movies.
* RealMoneyTrade

!Relic Hunter Guild
The antagonists of Season 3 and the closest thing Noob has to a rival guild after this.

[[folder:The Leader (Spoilers)]]
!!Master Zen
->Class: Mage
->Guild position: Nuker / Guild Master

-->Played by: 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: dragging the Noob guild down.

* AccidentalMurder
* AxCrazy: 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.
* 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.
* CircularReasoning: 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.
* DisproportionateRetribution: 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.
* 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 WhamEpisode events happened (or at least made known to the reader). In the novel storyline, he's an aversion of OffscreenInertia.
* EvilLaugh: He's prone to this in the comic.
* FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome: 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.
* HairTriggerTemper
* HazyFeelTurn: 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.
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: As much as a MeanBoss he is, he doesn't take kindly to Ivy making Valentin explode in the webseries version.
* MeanBoss: 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.
* 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.
* SirSwearsALot: Even lampshaded by Couette. Toned down in the other media compared to the webseries.

[[folder:Another member (Spoilers)]]
->Class: Cartomancer

-->Played by: Floria Noel

A young woman who considers her Guild Master to be a genius. She owns the house in which Master Zen is currently hiding and seems to be helping out the guild because Stockholm syndrome.

* DeathDealer
* AMatchMadeInStockholm
* SignificantAnagram: Her original name is an angram of "Maître Zen"; the name she's given in the English subtitles is an anagram of "Master Zen".
* MadLove: For Master Zen, 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".

[[folder:Elyx (Spoilers)]]
->Class: Druid
->Guild position: Healer

-->Played by: Alexia Sireuille

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 in the psych ward of his jail. Despite this, she's probably the most normal-acting person in the guild. Her backstory gets revealed in the second movie.

* AmicableExes: [[spoiler:With Abraham.]]
* TheLancer: Acts as the guild second-in-command and has a personality radically different from that of her guild master.
* {{Lobotomy}}: The reason she was in the psych ward in the first place, apparently. She has no memories of her life before it.
* LukeIMightBeYourFather: Rare female example [[spoiler:for Ystos, Sparadrap and a third brother of theirs]], thanks to the {{Lobotomy}} above.
* OnlySaneMan: Backstory and company she keeps set aside, she seems to be the best adjusted member of the group.
* PlayingGertrude: [[spoiler:We don't know Simon's age, but Sparadrap is hitting his mid-twenties by the time he turns out to potentially be her son, and the novels make Ystos only three years younger.]]
* TeamMom: She's quite ready to calm down Master Zen when he seems about to have an outburst and is seen shutting up Valentin once or twice.
* WalkingSpoiler: Both the reason she's in the story in the first place and what's later revealed about her once she gets a little focus are plot twists. The only safe things to reveal about her are her existence and her affiliation to Relic Hunter.
* YouDoNOTWantToKnow: Invokes this when Valentin asks how she managed to [[spoiler:escape the jail's psych ward]] in the comic.

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

-->Played by: Nicolas Curty

A CasanovaWannabe who was roommates with the guild's leader at some point and has taken a certain interest in Ivy. Also the member with the least screentime.

* BeCarefulWhatYouSay: Trying to pick up the series' GadgeteerGenius by telling her she must be a bomb in real life: [[TemptingFate Bad idea]].
* BeMyValentine: Given that Valentin is the French "Valentine" and his CasanovaWannabe tendencies, there's little chance the name is an accident.
* 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, a couple of incidents imply that the latter lacks some knowledge in the matters of love.

-> Real life name: Abraham Lepape

Sparadrap and his brother's father. Prior to his debut in the second movie, all the info we get about him is a couple of mentions of him being a priest from Sparadrap. His avatar is implied to technically be a reroll of Relic Hunter's guild master, who happens to be busy elsewhere in real life.

* AccidentalMisnaming: A running gag with him, but somewhat justified by his bad memory [[spoiler:and the fact that he has at least three other sons besides Sparadrap and Ystos]].
* AmicableExes: [[spoiler:With Elyx.]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Stick Sparadrap's personality on a [[spoiler:mafia big-wig passing as a]] priest, and you get this.
* ForgetfulJones: He keeps getting his sons' names wrong and can't remember [[spoiler:whose mother Elyx is]].
* LaughablyEvil: [[spoiler:He may come off as an older Sparadrap, but he's still a member of the mafia. He even treats the distance Ystos takes from family activities as a bad thing, worrying he will end up in the police.]]
* LikeFatherLikeSon: In regards to Sparadrap, who definitely got his general goofy attitude and ForgetfulJones side from him.
* NunTooHoly: [[spoiler:The subversion variant that is only pretending to be a priest in the first place.]]
* SmackOnTheBack: Upon his introduction.
* VillainOfAnotherStory: [[spoiler:He's a mafia higher-up pretending to be a priest to escape the police. Finding people in whose eyes he's the bad guy must be quite easy in the real world.]]
* WackyParentSeriousChild: In regards to [[spoiler:Ystos]], who has a FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling dynamic with Sparadrap.
* WhamLine: If there is such a thing as a walking WhamLine, he qualifies for it. Within his first few minutes of screentime, he reveals the identity of one of the women with whom he had a son and reveals he has a third son in the process of trying to remember which son she gave birth to. As [[spoiler:Ystos]] knows more about his life than Sparadrap does, merely showing up causes the former to utter one or two whammys of his own while having a casual conversation with him.

!Other Order Players

--> ''"''Horizon'' isn't a game, it is a science. It is a science I alone have mastered."''

->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.
* AnimateDead: A given for the necromancer class.
* BackInTheSaddle: Of the getting out of retirement and out of boredom kind.
* BaldOfAwesome: For those on the Order's side.
* BaldOfEvil: For those ''not'' on his side.
* CastFromHitPoints:[[spoiler:Applys to his player rather than his avatar. Tenshirock heavily implies that there is a trade-off between how invested he is in the game and his health.]]
* ChallengeGamer: Shows this side of himself in ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'', where he chooses to make even more complex an in-game narrative that has already gotten so dire that some player and in-game characters are already starting to give up trying to resolve it.
* ChekhovMIA: In the novels: mentioned in the second, showed up the third.
* CooperationGambit: [[spoiler: When Fantöm single-handedly beat the Source of Chaos for the second time, he owed his surviving a recently added explosion only to Spectre's help. The explanation given was that he couldn't stand to see 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]].
* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: [[spoiler:Fantöm and Amaras had to cooperate to manage this, but they did it.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler: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 ''Series/PrisonBreak'' 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 alongside him.]]
* InTheHood: When he pulled TheWorfEffect on Ystos in the webseries.
* LivingLegend: Explicitly said to be this on ''Horizon''.
* TheMentor: To Amaras.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Explicitly 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.

->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 of discovering 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.]]
* InnocentlyInsensitive: [[spoiler:Given that she viewed the wedding as just a fun way to celebrate finding Sourcelame, chances are that she doesn't realize how much she hurt Arthéon by leaving the ceremony to attend another event.]]
* 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.]]
* MoralityChain: Given [[spoiler:how Arthéon reacted to 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.
* RunawayBride: [[spoiler:More like left Arthéon at the altar because she preferred discovering new game content to finalising the in-game marriage that she was taking less seriouly than him]].
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Downplayed, as she bonded with Arthéon over a 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.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: The InnocentlyInsensitive act above can be held responsible for many of things that go wrong in the movies.

The story is set in a {{MMORPG}}, which needs plenty of people who are not players to keep the wheels turning. A select few of these has made appearances in the story.

[[folder:Judge Dead]]
!!Judge Dead
->Reroll: Dead, archer (Order)
->Real life name: Théodore Saquebien

-->Played by: Lucas Robert (for portrayal of Théodore and all versions of Dead)

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.

* AscendedFanboy: He was a player before becoming Game Master.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[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."]]
* 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.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Same remark as BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor.
* 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 ''does'' include quite frustrating moments, [[spoiler: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
* 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.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: [[spoiler:In the first movie, Tenshirock points out that his investment in his Game Master role is quite close his own investment in his hacker role.]]
* MissingMom: Confirmed to be dead the second we hear of her.
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler:For better and for worse, Tenshirock does care about him.]]
* 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 says "I am the law" at some point in the webseries.
* SoreLoser: Comes with the InferioritySuperiorityComplex.

->Reroll: Rock (Order)
->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.

* AmbiguouslyBi: His backstory requires him to be interested in women to an extent. However, 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 that [[YaoiFangirl Gaea]], known for making videos, can enjoy them.
* AntiVillain: He's a WellIntentionedExtremist with his own standards and has no personal hate for the protagonists.
* ArchnemesisDad:[[spoiler:To Judge Dead.]]
* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: May be blending in because of the neomancer'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
* 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.
* 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
* CoolSword
* TheCracker: Though a very sympathetic version of it.
* 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.]]
* 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''.
* 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 surprise to the rest of the guild. The fact that Tenshirock has done them no harm so far is due to the fact that Gaea negotiated 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.
* TheLostLenore: [[spoiler:His wife's death is a major factor in his and Judge Dead's current situation.]]
* LukeIAmYourFather: Yes, he actually said the line to [[spoiler:Judge Dead]] in an in-game flash-back. It got a CallBack in a later present-day scene.
* 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.
* 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.
* 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]]. In ''Film/NoobLeconseilDesTroisFactions'', TheWatson for his situation initially assumes that this happened before being corrected. The ''Noob Reroll'' prologue hints to this eventually happening to an extent, as his real name is dropped as one of the people behind ''Horizon Reborn'' only being playable during hours during which most people are not working.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Judge Dead is his son and the person he's actually trying to drive away from ''Horizon''.]]
* SinisterShades
* WellDoneDadGuy: [[spoiler:He admits to have bested Judge Dead in their father-son activities in hope to make him proud of him. The problem is that Judge Dead is the Sore Loser type.]]
* 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 mentioned that it has caused people from his old guild to commit suicide.

[[folder:Charles-Antoine Donteuil]]
!!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 completely 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.

[[folder:Fargöth's chosen one (spoilers)]]
!!Arthéon of Fargöth

--> Played by: 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. He's different from Balakior in that he's not present in the game when his player logs off.


* CoolSword: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 commitments left him with not much to do during the day.
* TalkingWeapon: Sourcelame again.
* ThatManIsDead: An in-game equivalent. His avatar is actually an 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 and he's a post-Rage Breaking Point Arthéon.
* TookALevelInBadass: Compared to his original player avatar, due to now having stats fit for a boss. His HitPoint count alone is stated to be bigger than those of Fantöm, Amaras and Spectre added together.
* TookALevelInCynic: Between the way Kary left him, lingering bitterness towards Justice guild and the feeling that his investment in the Noob guild yielded little to no return, his outlook has gotten much more pessimistic.
* WildCard: He's one by design, as he can temporarily ally with players if it can help him accomplish his goal.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He seems to have taken that route in ''Film/NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions'', as his solution to the DivineConflict between the Sources involves [[spoiler:Olydri and an asteroid getting way too close for comfort]].

->Real life name: Ricardo

Balakior is player-controlled NonPlayerCharacter, much like the character just above. His main difference with the other one is that Balakior is Ricardo's avatar when he's logged in, but becomes an ordinary IntrepidMerchant QuestGiver when Ricardo is offline.

* IntrepidMerchant
* QuestGiver: When Ricardo if offline.
* NumberTwo: Ricardo, to Charles-Antoine Donteuil.


-->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=].

* TheBlacksmith: One of his many jobs.
* IntrepidMerchant: Sometimes found as a travelling merchant in hostile areas.
* ManInAKilt: His training ground incarnations.
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: 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.
* RenaissanceMan: The entire idea of his character requires him to be this, as he's competent in all his jobs.
* ShopKeeper: He'll be running any shop the Noob guild visits.
* 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]].
* 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.

[[folder:Bartémulius and Nostariat]]
!!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.

* CanisLatinicus: Whenever they talk about plants, they call them by Latin-sounding names (as a parallel to real-life scientific names).
* TheDividual: Meant to be that, but Florence Torta not being available for shooting made Bartémulius appear alone twice in the webseries. Played straight in the novels and comic.
* EntitledBastard: Their dialogue when accosted can be summed up as "Why are you waiting to help us, you bunch of idiots? We are too important to be ignored!"
* 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.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: 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.
* 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


-->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 repeats 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.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Tabris, some random forest, Season 5 finale.]]
* KilledOffScreen: We only know of [[spoiler:her getting killed]] from Gaea pointing it out.
* MauveShirt
* PlayingWithFire
* UnexplainedRecovery: [[spoiler:In the first movie]].
* QuestGiver


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?
** In his introduction from the third novel, he mentions killing a bunch of people... then teleporting their bodies elsewhere because they tarnished the beauty of the the place. He also gets mad at someone he's fighting for destroying a well-made statue in the process of ''trying to stay alive''.
* CoolMask
* FalseFlagOperation: [[spoiler:His murder of General Helkazard. He arranged to make it look like he was killed by Empire and Order members. In the novel version, the framed parties were the Noob guild (for the Empire) and the Relic Hunter guild (for the Order).]]
* NighInvulnerability: Pretty much hinted at in the third novel 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.
* SealedEvilInACan: Prior to the Centralis battle.
* SuperPrototype: According to the novels, he's technically the very first neomancer. That serum allegedly made of the DNA of various creatures that is injected into ordinary humans to make them neomancers? That's cells taken from him, which still makes it technically true.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Orders were coded into his genetic material when he was made. He's subconsciously following them despite his makers having lost any kind of direct control over him. One of these orders is helping the Empire find more rosaphir, which was a side effect of him opening passages to other planets and moons in the fourth novel.]]

!!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.


--> 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."
* GenreSavvy: In the second novel, he's just aware enough that he's in a video game to expect TheGuardsMustBeCrazy to apply to the jail in which he's held.
* InsufferableGenius
* TheMentor: To Bartémulius and Nostariat.
* RobeAndWizardHat: For the wizard hat part.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: In the second novel, he casually mentions that he knows how to make an elixir that would make him immortal, but doesn't drink it because he'd rather die than spend any more time with his former students.

* AccidentalTruth: He wasn't present when Tabris revealed to Helkazard that his cells where in the serum used to make people into neomancers. However, he calls Töne Förk a "Tabris ersatz" upon finding out he became a neomancer.
