The cast of ''ComicBook/ThievesAndKings''

!!Rubel
A Thief -- which in [[ConstructedWorld this world]] is not a pickpocket, but a firmly established [[LoveableRogue legendary rogue archetype]], who is expected to have swashbuckling adventures, fight monsters, thumb his nose at authorities and woo pretty girls. People he meets are suitably impressed.

'''Tropes:'''
* ActionHero
* {{Badass}}
* HeroesLoveDogs: One of the three types of animal he can [[SpeaksFluentAnimal talk to]] (the other two are mice and horses).
* ImpossibleThief
* TheLancer: To Heath, after the story starts to focus more on her.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Thieves are not good with magic.

!!Varkias
An [[TheImp imp]], and Rubel's fiercely loyal sidekick. Not very bright, and with a limited memory, he often argues with Rubels goals and methods. In the past, he has sidekicked for Rubel's mentor Quinton, and [[spoiler:a few of Katara's preincarnations]], though he remembers little about it.

'''Tropes:'''
* DeadpanSnarker
* FairyCompanion: He isn't an actual fairy, but still fits into this trope.
* ForgetfulJones
* NonHumanSidekick

!!Katara
The princess and legal heir to the kingdom -- and also the reincarnation of the powerful Red Sorceress. Rubel is her sworn Thief. At the outset of the series, Katara has disappeared, leaving her evil brother Kangar manoeuvering to seize control of the kingdom. By the time we see Katara again, she has [[TookALevelInBadass taken several levels in badass]], [[spoiler:become leader of a horde of trolls, and is planning to retake her kingdom by force]].

'''Tropes:'''
* BadassPrincess
* AFatherToHisMen: [[spoiler:Her relationship with her troll army]].
* MagicalGirlWarrior
* NamesTheSame: Not to be confused with [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender that other Katara]].
* RedHeadedHero
* TookALevelInBadass
* UnreliableExpositor: Because she may or may not be insane.

!!Soracia
Initially the main villain. Thousands of years old, wielding two oversized magical blades and wrapped in a cape of magical shadow, she acts as TheDragon for the BigBad. She is the sister of the first incarnation (that we know of) of the Red Sorceress. While her sister has been reincarnated dozens of times, she's stayed alive all this time, growing in power and cunning.

'''Tropes:'''
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Before her HeelFaceTurn]].
* [[spoiler:TheAtoner]]: She becomes this after [[spoiler:her HeelFaceTurn]].
* DarkMagicalGirl
* EvilCounterpart: To the Red Sorceress.
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]
* IHaveManyNames: Also known as "the Shadow Lady", "the Queen of Halves", and "[[SomeCallMeTim Sally]]".
* LadyOfWar
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* TimeAbyss
* TheUnfavourite: Her father loved the Red Sorceress more ([[UnreliableNarrator or at least]] ''[[UnreliableNarrator she]]'' [[UnreliableNarrator thought so]]).
* VillainousCrush: The reason why she wants to steal Rubel's soul.
* WomanInBlack

!!Quinton Zempfester
The greatest wizard in the world (though we [[InformedAbility never see him doing any actual magic]]) and more than half crazy. He is generally at the center of a GambitRoulette, aided by the fact that he can convince anyone to do [[http://www.iboxpublishing.com/strip19.htm nearly anything]]. [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Deceptively young looking]], he's old enough to refer to Soracia as "Kiddo". [[spoiler:The as-of-yet-unseen BigBad is his brother]].

'''Tropes:'''
* BornWinner
* TheChessmaster
* CrazyPrepared
* ForgetfulJones
* GuileHero
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In ''The Walking Mage'', at least. In the series proper he comes off as more CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass (though that could also be a put-on).
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* RobeAndWizardHat
* TimeAbyss: To give you an idea of just how old he is, ten thousand-year-old Soracia is young compared to him.
* TricksterMentor: This is especially evident in ''The Walking Mage''.
* UnreliableExpositor
* TheWonka

!!Heath Wingwit
A young peasant girl and another reincarnation of the Red Sorceress. Through Quinton's Time Travel shenanigans, this preincarnation of Katara is currently living in the same time period as her. This paradox is implied to do not-good things to Katara's sanity. Heath is currently studying magic, with mixed success.

'''Tropes:'''
* MagicalGirl
* PluckyGirl
* RedHeadedHero

!!Kimithin
A girl who is studying magic under the WickedWitch Locumire. [[spoiler:She is the reincarnation of one of the souls bound to Soracia's magical swords]]. [[http://www.iboxpublishing.com/strip10.htm She and her best friend Leahanna met Rubel while he was tied to a pole at Locumire's, awaiting a grisly fate]]. Despite being on the villains' side, she is a nice and thoughtful girl who gets along quite well with Rubel and [[spoiler:after her HeelFaceTurn, she eventually starts a romantic relationship with him]].

'''Tropes:'''
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler:She's powerful enough to give ''Soracia'' trouble]].
* DarkMagicalGirl
* TheHeart
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Leahanna.
* IKnowYourTrueName: [[spoiler:Her true name is Jale]].
* PunchClockVillain
* [[spoiler:ThirdOptionLoveInterest]]

!!Leahanna
A girl who is studying magic under the WickedWitch Locumire. [[spoiler:She is the reincarnation of one of the souls bound to Soracia's magical swords]].

'''Tropes:'''
* BlondesAreEvil: [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. When Kimithin (a brunette) undergoes a HeelFaceTurn and decides to join Rubel and Heath, Leahanna refuses to come with her and instead stays with Locumire and the other witches. However, Leahanna herself gets a HeelFaceTurn after suffering a VillainousBreakdown followed by a KirkSummation (courtesy of Soracia)]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Sort of comes off this way in her first appearance. [[CharacterizationMarchesOn Later on, not so much]].
-->'''Leah''': Paradise can only be achieved through PROOF OF BLOOD!
-->'''Rubel''': Is she always like this?
-->'''Kim''': It's less when she plays with her kitten.
-->'''Leah''': Don't tell him about Ginger!
* DarkMagicalGirl
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kimithin.
* IKnowYourTrueName: [[spoiler: Her true name is Morthalanue]].
