[[folder:The Overlord and his Allies]]
!! The Overlord/The Witch-Boy/The Demon Lord of Nordberg

The son of the previous Overlord, he starts off as a CreepyChild in the town of Nordberg known only as the Witch-Boy. When the Glorious Empire came to the town's doorsteps, the Witch-Boy was unceremoniously tossed to the Imperial troops to be exterminated, but was saved by the Minions. Afterwards, he was brought to the Netherworld and given a proper evil upbringing by Gnarl.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: As a child, he was picked on by the Nordbergians for being magical and creepy looking. This comes to bite the townsfolk in the ass really badly.
* AntiHero: In contrast to his father, the Witch-Boy is much less heroic, though he's still opposing a villainous force.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: His skin turned blue with white/silver markings due to the Tower Heart explosion.
* [[{{Brainwashed}} Brainwashing]]: How he acquires loyalty.
* BullyingTheDragon: Throughout his childhood, the Witch-Boy was hated and abused by just about everyone in Nordberg - despite the fact that he had magical powers and (later) a small army of minions under his command. The children of the town realized their mistake after getting beaten up and having their clothes stolen. Everyone else had to wait a good thirteen years for the consequences of their actions to catch up with them.
* CarryABigStick: Though he does use other weapons, this Overlord has a thing for clubs and maces; not only is his ultimate weapon an enchanted mace, but his childhood weapon of choice was a wooden club.
* CreepyChild: As the Witch-Boy.
* EvilerThanThou: His father can do good deeds for the sake of PragmaticVillainy. This guy chooses between being a LawfulEvil slaver or a ChaoticEvil destroyer.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* InTheHood: As the Witch-Boy, the Overlord wore a hooded coat as part of his winter ensemble. Oddly enough, the fur on the hood is formed into the shape of the future Overlord's helmet.
* MagicKnight: Though his spells aren't as fantastic, force touch and its offshoots make him have a heavier emphasis on magic than his father.
* RedRightHand: Apart from the aforementioned glowing eyes, he has blue skin with spiral patterns.
* [[HeroicMime Not-So Heroic Mime]]: Like his father, he doesn't speak in-game.
* ShockAndAwe: Most of his magical powers seem to involve lightning or electricity.
* TinTyrant
* VillainProtagonist

!! Kelda

A childhood friend of the Witch-Boy, Kelda was the only Nordbergian that did not hate him and in fact had a crush upon him. After the conquest of Nordberg, she becomes the first of his mistresses.

* ChildhoodFriendRomance
* HunterTrapper
* [[ImpliedLoveInterest Implied First Mistress]]: Considering she was his OnlyFriend in childhood, and she's the only mistress that genuinely loves the Overlord.
* NightmareFetishist: As a child, she was the Witch-Boy's only friend, and gleefully cheered him on during the Midwinter's Eve rampage. As an adult, she's a skilled hunter with a fondness for animal pelts and other taxidermy souvenirs - and she's still carrying a torch for the Witch-Boy.
* HeroesWantRedheads: In this case, the VillainProtagonist wants this redhead.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Prior to being taken in by the Overlord, she clearly thought this about most of Nordberg; quite apart from the odd remarks at how stupid Nordbergians are, she has absolutely zero problem with her ex-neighbors being enslaved or massacred.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Out of all the Mistresses, Kelda is the only one who honestly seems to love the Overlord for who he is. She's still decidedly amoral in her outlook, but she's miles better than Juno and [[spoiler:Fay]].

!! Juno

A woman from the Glorious Empire, Juno is a selfish layabout who relies upon her looks to get what she wants. After the conquest of Everlight she becomes the second mistress.

* TheDitz
* GoldDigger
* ItsAllAboutMe
* {{Jerkass}}
* MaleGaze: The Overlord getting distracted by her cleavage was why he ends up crash-landing upon Everlight.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Has a purple/plum sash as part of her outfit.


A replacement for the previous Overlord's jester. Originally just another minion, his time on the battlefield came to an abrupt end when the frozen Witch-Boy arrived in the Netherworld and Quaver made the mistake of [[TongueOnTheFlagpole pressing his eye to the ice]]; thirteen years later, the one-eyed minion now works as the Jester, reciting poems written in honor of his master - accompanied by a band, should you find any musical instruments in the field.

* ButtMonkey: Loses an eye, gets kicked out of the minion burrow, knocked into a crevasse... even when he manages to steal a crown from the Overlord's loot, he manages to lose his glass eye in the process.
* CurseCutShort: One of his early poems is interrupted by a snowball to the head, followed by a long drop into a pit.
--> Begone, you beast/and make it fast/for if you don't/we'll kick your ''[=AAAAAAAAAaaaaaaa...=]''
* EyeScream: Not only do you see the eye freeze to the ice, but when Gnarl prepares to have the Witch-Boy thawed by fire, Quaver pulls away fast enough ''to rip the eye out of its socket!''
* GlassEye
* TheJester
* ProfessionalButtKisser: Quaver is ''much'' more toadying than the previous jester.
* StylisticSuck: His poems.
* TeamChef

!! Mortis

An old and extremely morbid Blue Minion serving as the official manager of the Minion Burrows in the Netherworld. As well as ensuring that the Minions are spawned and ready for battle, Mortis also has the power to resurrect dead minions- [[VideogameCaringPotential just in case the Overlord gets attached to any of them.]]

* BackFromTheDead[=/=]DeathIsNotPermanent: Facilitates this.
* DontFearTheReaper: Apart from dressing up as the GrimReaper and generally being morbid and depressing, Mortis is a fairly reasonable guy. He even quotes the Blue Oyster Cult song when resurrecting minions.
* TheEeyore
* EquivalentExchange: In order to bring minions back from the dead, life-force must be sacrificed. The more powerful the minion, the higher the lifeforce cost.
* LickedByTheDog: Minions tend to hug Mortis once he resurrects them, much to his annoyance.


[[folder: The Sanctuaries]]
!! Queen Fay

The Queen of the Magical Sanctuaries and the leader of all free magical beings, she is engaged in a desperate attempt to save her people from the predations of the Empire. Quite naturally, she also opposes the Overlord as a being of Dark Magic. [[spoiler: Later on however, she proposes an [[EnemyMine alliance]] between them to defeat the Empire where she helps him recharge the Tower Heart. When her temples prove to be insufficient, Fay then allows herself to be drained to recharge the Heart. However, the process then twists her soul and drives her mad, turning her into Dark Fay. If you're destruction you can overcharge her afterwards and kill her, causing her to reappear in your tower as a brainwashed ghost, either way she joins you after and becomes one of the Overlord's mistresses.]]

* BigGood
* [[spoiler:DrunkOnTheDarkSide]]: [[spoiler:As Dark Fay, she wholeheartedly embraces evil and is completely psychotic]].
* [[spoiler: EnemyMine: Her arrangement with the Overlord is this, right up until her corruption.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilFeelsGood: Part of what made her change happen so easily likely came from her growing frustrations at how incompetent her subjects are and the catharsis of getting to watch them be beaten down by you.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilRedhead: If she's dominated into Dark Fay.]]
* [[spoiler:FallenHero: As Dark Fay.]]
* [[spoiler:RedOniBlueOni: As your mistress, Fay's principles will mirror the karmic alignment of the Overlord, as Dark Fay (the domination choice), she's an OmnicidalManiac who's fully embraced the dark side and hates everything. As Ghost Fay (the destruction choice) she's very similar to how she was in life, being kind and still caring for the life of everything (though the brainwashing makes her believe "caring for everything" means "hand it all over to you".)]]
* HeroAntagonist
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]: [[spoiler:Allowing herself to be drained. It doesn't kill her (unless you want it to), though it does corrupt her.]]
* TheHighQueen
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She has light blue hair [[spoiler:while she's Queen Fay.]]

!! Florian Greenheart
Fay's right-hand elf, he can usually be found leading her warriors in the field. By all appearances, Florian is a typical elf: arrogant, self-righteous, effeminate, and very, ''very'' shallow - he even goes so far as to say that only the "[[WhatMeasureIsANonCute fluffy and the fuzzy]]" magical creatures can be saved. [[spoiler: He's actually the alter ego of Emperor Solarius, and directly responsible for the Cataclysm and the plague that followed.]]

* [[spoiler:AllOfTheOtherReindeer: It was the mockery of his fellow Elves that drove him to try and steal magic from the Tower Heart.]]
* [[spoiler: BigBad]]
* CampStraight
* TheDitz
* HeroAntagonist: Much like Fay. [[spoiler: It later turns out that the heroic aspect is just an act.]]
* [[spoiler: MuggleBornOfMages: In the climax, Florian admits to being born without any of the magical powers his fellow Elves possessed- which was what drove him to villainy in the first place.]]
* NewAgeRetroHippie: He even wears a ''knitted rainbow hat'' into battle.
* TheNicknamer: He always refers to the Overlord as "Scourge of Evil", or Scourge for short.
* [[spoiler:ObfuscatingStupidity: His effeminate behavior and stupidity is just an act to keep anyone from suspecting his true motives.]]
* [[SissyVillain Sissy Antagonist]]: Pretty much the case for the most part. [[spoiler: Until the ending, when he drops the act and reveals that he's the Big Bad, and not that much of a SissyVillain at that.]]

[[folder: The Glorious Empire]]
!! Emperor Solarius

The Ruler of the Glorious Empire, he is dedicated to the extermination of magical beings and the expansion of his empire; face perpetually hidden by a golden mask and laurel wreath, he has taken credit for saving his people from the magical plague and rebuilding human civilization following the Cataclysm.

[[spoiler:In truth, he is actually Florian Greenheart, an elf thought to be in service of Queen Fay. Originally born without magic, he attempted to use the Tower Heart to rectify this, only to accidentally overload it, devastating the surrounding lands and creating the Magical Plague. From this, however, he founded the Empire with the help of Rose, with his intent being to gather up all magic for his ascension to Godhood.]]

* [[spoiler: AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: His goal.]]
* BigBad
* CoolMask
* CoolCrown: The golden laurel wreath.
* DramaticUnmask: [[spoiler: Inverted when Florian actually puts the mask ''on'' to unveil himself.]]
* [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination: What he transforms into in the finale.]]
* TheEmperor: Obviously.
** [[spoiler: GodEmperor: What he's hoping to become.]]
* LightIsNotGood
* [[spoiler: OneWingedAngel: The Devourer.]]
* PowerGlows
* SilentAntagonist: He's never seen to speak during the times he's seen in public.

!! Marius

Solarius' right-hand-man, Marius is often seen acting in the Emperor's stead as far as speech-making goes. [[spoiler: He's also one of the few Imperial citizens who know Solarius' true goals and identity; furthermore, he's entirely complicit with this.]]

* TheDragon
* HighClassGlass: Marius sports a rather anachronistic monocle.
* {{Hypocrite}}: See VillainTeleportation.
* [[spoiler: JustDesserts: After Solarius is transformed into the Devourer, Marius ends up among the many victims consumed.]]
* LeanAndMean
* ProfessionalButtKisser: [[spoiler: To the point that he actually ''begged'' to be eaten by the Devourer.]]
* MouthOfSauron
* SmugSnake
* UnholyMatrimony: Surprisingly, Marius is actually married to [[spoiler: Rose, the previous Overlord's mistress - and the current Overlord's mother.]] Given how little he speaks of his wife, and given how little she thinks of him, it's pretty clear that [[spoiler: Rose is only doing this to keep a close eye on Marius and the Emperor.]]
* VillainTeleportation: Despite being an Imperial Citizen, Marius isn't above using magic for transportation. [[spoiler: This is the first hint of the Glorius Empire's true corruption.]]

!! Governor Borius

The Imperial Governor of Nordberg and brother to Marius, Borius was installed on the very day the young Overlord was banished; when the Overlord finally returns, Borius is still in charge - and not willing to see his territory claimed by someone else.

* AdiposeRex
* HumiliationConga: His forces are trounced by the Overlord, Marius gives him an earful for his behavior, Kelda mocks him, and [[spoiler: the Overlord himself drops a statue on top of him; this is followed by the Overlord either killing him outright, or just leaving him paralyzed in the snow.]]
* FatBastard
* FatIdiot
* {{Nepotism}}: It's pretty clear that Borius only got the job due to Marius pulling a few strings in his favour.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: What Borius views his position as.
* VillainousGlutton

!! The Sentinels

A mysterious order of cloaked figures with the power to detect magic, the Sentinels are commonly used by the Empire to hunt down and destroy magicians and magical creatures alike. [[spoiler: They are led by none other than Rose, Mistress to the Overlord of the previous game.]]

* CoolCrown: Sentinels wear golden laurel wreaths over their hoods.
* TheFaceless
* {{Hypocrite}}: Despite being as opposed to magic as the rest of the Empire, the Sentinels appear to use it in order to detect magic creatures. For good measure, [[spoiler: Rose herself has no problem with using it to fly and teleport.]]
* InTheHood
* MagicStaff: Rarely seen without them.
* MageKiller: They're capable of quickly killing you and your minions.
* MagicWand: When detecting magic at close range, they use scepter-like wands alongside their usual staffs.
* MysteriousWatcher: Not only do the Sentinels act as this to public areas across the Empire, one of them is actively following you throughout your travels. [[spoiler: It's because she's actually Rose, the Overlord's mother.]]
* SecretCircleOfSecrets
* [[spoiler: VillainTeleportation: Rose and at least two other Sentinels could manage this.]]
* TheVoiceless
