Characters: Adventurers!

The Heroes, Villians, and NPCs of our little webcomic, ladies and gentlemen. Help contribute anyway you can.

    Protagonists 

Tropes that apply to them all

  • Hitchhiker Heroes: The party starts out with Karn and Ardam, and the others randomly join up, often for no apparent reason.
  • Super Mode: Karn gains one, then becomes able to give them to the others with Truth Buster.

Karn

The main protagonist of our story, and the sort of leader of the bunch. He loves swords, block pushing puzzles, and various generic hero troupes.

Ardam

The Black Mage of the band, and the smartest member of the group.
  • Black Mage: Implied to be his character class, he dresses as one and uses magic in battle.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Complains endlessly about the illogic of the RPG Mechanics Verse he lives in.
  • Elemental Magic: All the RPG classics... and wind.
  • Heroic BSOD: He will sometimes just lock up from the contrived ridiculousness of the world. In particular, Evil Pants caused him to be stunned.
  • The Lancer: He is pretty much the opposite of Karn.
  • Official Couple: With Tesla.
  • Only Sane Man: Was this when it was just Karn and him.
  • The Smart Guy: He figured out all the rules to Septuple Scare... by himself! He explains he only did it because the alternative was leaving Karn to do it instead (likely stalling the party for ages).
  • Summon Magic: One of his specialties.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: His idea of common sense does not apply here.

Drecker

The thief of the group, Karn and Ardam met him when he stole Karn's wallet.
  • Flechette Storm: What his IKnives skill amounts to.
  • Impossible Thief: He can get away with stealing pretty much anything. Even objects that would be too large for the victim to be carrying.
  • Knife Nut: Uses knives as his weapon type, and is shown to be an expert at knife throwing.
  • Optional Party Member: And he isn't happy to learn this.
  • Video Game Stealing: One of the experts at it.
  • Visual Pun: His Mug attack, which, instead of being a combination of a physical attack and stealing attempt, causes a giant ceramic mug to fall from the sky.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Really does not like mountains.

Karashi

A ninja from a family of ninjas.
  • Action Girl: She shows off her ninja acrobatic skills cutscenes.
  • Always Someone Better: Mizuna thought Karashi was this to her. As Karashi quickly points out, it was the other way around.
  • Anime Hair: Mizuna's hair? It's natural! Karashi simply dyes hers brown.
  • Damsel out of Distress: Is kidnapped twice. And rescues herself twice. One time she did it so quickly that she made it back to camp before the party even realized she was gone.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Not that you can tell by looking, but she's apparently half dwarf. On her mother's side...
  • Hidden Depths: She's a musician too; she was even in marching band at school. Of course, that was ninja school, and ninjas are supposed to be quiet and not seen. Gildward points out just why that doesn't work well.
  • Official Couple: With Drecker. He thinks she's hot; she takes a long time to warm up to him.
  • Ninja: Her character class. Like Final Fantasy ninjas, she can use a "Throw" command in battle.
  • How Do I Shoot Web: Unlike the rest of the cast, she has no clue what most of her Super Mode abilities does.

Killer Evil Death Spybot 5000

A killer robot sent by Khrima to infiltrate the party... That he fails to make use of.
  • Pokémon Speak: Outside a few instances, all he ever says is "kill" or "destroy". Doesn't stop him from becoming a singing sensation.
  • Transforming Mecha: Can become a cannon. And a couple other modes as well.
  • The Mole: Though Khirma doesn't use him that much.

Gildward

Resident spoony bard.
  • Butt Monkey: He's on the receiving end of a lot of comedic abuse.
  • Dreadful Musician: How he does damage in battle.
  • Joke Character: He's largely ineffective in battle.
  • Lethal Joke Character:
    • He knows the Melody of Finite, making him a threat to the power of the Eternals.
    • During the fight with Whizorb, he shatters the Crystallium with a tuning fork.
  • Meaningful Name: A combination of the Japanese and English names of Edward, the original Spoony Bard.
  • Spoony Bard:
    • How spoony you ask? He jumps for joy after surviving a single attack.
    • And is excited when his attack reaches triple digits.
    • And gets KO-ed by an attack that only inflicts random status effects.
      Khrima: What's his problem? That spell is just random status effects.
      Karn: That's usually enough for Gildward.
      Khrima: It was just SLOW and ATK DOWN!
      Karn: I stand by my earlier statement.

Chookie

The self-proclaimed mascot character. This pink fur ball gets on everybody's nerves.

Tesla

The second girl to join the group with a thing for blue haired mages.

Lumi

The last member to join, and priestess in a Totally Not Evil Religion.

    Khrima Force 

Khrima

The big bad of our series, he's out to, you guessed it: Take Over the World
  • Affably Evil: He's every bit as goofy as Karn.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: One of his attacks literally breaks the CD!
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Can rival Karn at times.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Several of his plans - for example, his idea for installing laser beams on a missile.
  • Disney Villain Death: The penultimate comic reveals that he survived and is giving up evil. Still loves lasers, though.
  • Evil Overlord: He has lots of followers and minions, but exactly what he's the Overlord of is not stated.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: To the point that he put it down as his religion, uses them to cut a sandwich, and fired a minion for making something to replace lasers. Appropriately, his last line in the comic was a suggestion to put a laser on a gravestone.
  • Load-Bearing Boss: The fact that the Khrimalith was falling apart was even used as evidence to Karn that Khrima was defeated.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Khrima dramatically reveals himself, saying that he was "hiding behind his pawn by pretending to be his sidekick," but then realizing that he forgot to set up a pawn.
  • One-Winged Angel: Has a condition that causes him to spontaneously grow an angel wing. Assumes four different transformations during the final battle.
  • Running Gag: He loves playing Boggle, and he loves finding the word "gorilla." He'll occasionally shout about it even when playing other games.
  • True Final Boss: Competes with Eternion for the position. He wins!
  • Weaksauce Weakness:
    • Apparently, peanuts. "Have you never heard of an allergy before?"
    • As Karashi accidentally discovers, his third stage form is weak to getting hit with a falling piano, and his final form turns out to be vulnerable to the "Slow" status effect.

Argent

Khrima's right hand man, there's little to be said. Wrong!
  • Anti-Villain: Though one still has to wonder why the hell he thought working for Khrima was a good idea.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Working with Khrima is a bit of a step down for him. Oh, but he gets back up.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His backstory is revealed late in the strip. He used to be the enforcer for the Eternal Council, punishing rogue Eternals by sealing their powers and making them mortal. Eternion turned out to be too much for him to handle, however.
  • The Dragon: For Khrima
  • Enigmatic Minion: His motivations aren't known until his backstory is finally revealed.
  • Walking Spoiler: See Dark and Troubled Past.

Mizuna

Karashi's little sister, and a member of Khrima Force.

Axel

Dirkland, a bard Gildward went to school with. Turned to evil after graduating. Later becomes cyborg after joining Khrima.

Blanc

A man on a quest to get revenge on our heroes for killing his pet monster, Bitey.

Cody

A man who works for Khrima at first, but he gets fired fairly early on, making him a Wild Card.
  • Mr. Exposition: Takes up this role in the final arc.
  • Old Flame Fizzle: Used to be Tesla's boyfriend, but they broke up long ago and neither was interested in picking back up.
  • Optional Party Member: He apparently can be recruited if Karn hadn't recruited Drecker.
  • Wild Card: Initially worked for Khrima, but he got fired for trying to replace a laser. Later works for Eternion. And if Drecker hadn't been recruited, Cody would have joined Karn.

    The Eternals 

Tropes to the group as a whole

Eternion

The other major villain, alongside Khrima, who claims to be the true final boss of the game.

Maxima Termis

Leader of the Eternal Council. Eternion once tried to depose him and failed.

Infinel

The Messenger of the Eternal Council. He and Eternion really don't get along... at all.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Had his life force bond to the Realm of Calling (where summons reside) just in case Eternion offed him.

Imposis

Invisin

The Assassin of the Eternal Council. In love with Eternion and willingly joins him.

    Everybody Else 

The "There Are Many Guards In The Castle" Guy

A man who can only say: "There are many guards in the castle."
