Amanra

A warrior-priestess of Isis met by our heroes in Egypt, she's fighting against Kemsyt forces to recover Osiris' body and resurrect the god, and then she follows Arkantos in his quest to the North. In the Titan Expansion she's become Queen, and fights first against Kastor and then the Titans.

Brokk and Eitri

Two dwarves who owned a great furnace which was occupied by the giants. They eventually help Arkantos by reforging Thor's Hammer. They're also the main characters of their own Campaign.

Gargarensis

The main villain of the campaign, he's a giant Cyclops hero who's blood-related to Poseidon. He's trying to open the Titan Gates in Erebus in order to free Kronos, hoping to receive immortality as a reward.

Kamos

A brutal minotaur pirate who raided Atlantis several times and has a grudge against Arkantos. He's working for Gargarensis.

  • A Load of Bull: He's a minotaur, so duh...
  • The Brute
  • Disney Villain Death
  • The Dragon: To Gargarensis.
  • Hook Hand: A sword hand. He lost his right hand while trying to tame a Leviathan.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Courtesy of Arkantos.
  • Karmic Death: He is cornered on a cliff, all his men is dead, and his arch-enemy approaches him. What does he do? Rather than surrendering, ha jumps on Arkantos, and impales himself on his spear, and then falls to his death. It seems as though the developers were trying to clean Arkantos for any involvement of his death, although he later pretty coldly orders the death of Gargarensis, (actually a disguised Kemsyt), when he is captured and defenseless.
  • Moses in the Bullrushes: A rare villanous example, his bio tells that he was a minotaur calf when he fell from a ship and was raised by the goddess Bast. It is unknown if this has anything to do with his villanous tendencies
  • Sinister Scimitar: A simple hook isn't good enough for him, so he uses a whole khopesh blade instead.
  • The Unintelligible: Like all minotaurs he speaks in grunts and in cutscenes is clear that he can't speak very well.

Kemsyt

A follower of Set who's working for Gargarensis. He's magically turned into a Gargarensis deadringer in order to buy the original one more time and is executed by Ajax.

Skult

A frail, suspicious old man living in Midgard who offers his help to Arkantos, but is eventually revealed to be Loki's avatar. He also appears in the campaign focused on Brokk and Eitri.

Circe

  • Royals Who Actually Do Something

     Major Deities 

Zeus

King of the Gods and ruler of Olympus, he's one of the three main Greek Gods. He doesn't appear directly but still helps Arkantos in his struggle against Gargarensis.

Poseidon

God of the Sea and defender of Atlantis, he's the god worshipped by both the Atlanteans and Gargarensis. Revealed to be the Bigger Bad behind Gargarensis, he's envious of Zeus' power, so he wants to free Kronos and use him against the other gods.

Hades

God of the Underworld, he rules over the Fire and Brimstone Hell of Erebus. Despite his status, he never ever appears and is actually pretty helpful.

Ra

The main Egyptian god of the Sun. He doesn't appear in the main campaign, as the heroes are more focused on Osiris.

Isis

Egyptian goddess of magic and Osiris' wife. She helps Amanra and Arkantos in their quest against Gargarensis.

Set

Osiris' brother and God of the storms, desert, war and foreign countries. In the campaign he killed and mutillated Osiris, and now is providing Kemsyt with help.

Odin

Ruler of the Norse gods, he never appears directly in the campaign and his only contribution is sending Reginleif to stop Gargarensis.

Thor

Son of Odin and norse god of lightning. Never appears in person, but he uses his hammer to smash closed (and blow up) the norse tartarus gate.

Loki

Norse god of tricks. Appears in-game in the form of Skult.

  • Cool Old Guy: Double subverted. Skult is mostly useless for the duration you're with him, but later walks right in front of a ballista to ask the guy firing it to surrender.

Kronos

Big Bad of The Titans, father of almost half of the greek pantheon, and emitter of purple smoke. Appears in game as an unplayable (except in the map editor) myth unit during the final mission.

Ouranos

Father of Kronos and god of the sky. Helps the atlanteans to escape a frozen wasteland, resulting in them waging war on every other civilation in the game.

  • Affably Evil: While still being a titan, he never does anything against the atlanteans even after they stop worshipping him.

Gaia

Mother of Kronos and essentially the earth. Helps Kastor and company against Prometheus and appears later on in person to defeat her son.

  • Big Good: Despite being one of the titans, she actively helps the atlanteans against her son. Even in quick battles and multiplayer, her powers are more to help the player survive early on than later game warfare.
