Bravemule has [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a LOT of characters]], and it can be pretty hard to keep track of all of them. This page details only some of them. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)


[[folder:The Dregs and Clods]]
According to WordOfGod, they were bandits before 1051, the foundation of Bravemule. It is now known that they were fleeing a raid that went wrong, killing their Leader and separating them from their comrades.


->''"NAME ME HERO."''

The expedition leader.

* BaldOfAwesome
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He has his own quirks, but he's a good leader.
* [[spoiler: DefiantToTheEnd]]
* GoodIsNotNice: He has no problems administering "discipline" when needed.
* OnlySaneMan: Well, compared to the other dwarves...
* [[spoiler: ThanatosGambit]]


->''"Fifteen sunrises have happened since Mittens went missing. Please Mittens I am alone without you. If I could fill my flask with your breath I would need ale no more."''

The miner.

* KindheartedCatLover
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Behem.
* NiceGuy
* OddFriendship: Exi is a nice guy with a fondness for cats, Behem is completely AxCrazy.
* [[spoiler: SuicideMission - "I have heard the sounds and know I will not return."]]


->''"The nefarious trees! Their retaliations escalate. I dodged an ancient chestnut where it toppled. Any tree that assaults I come next for their sapling. There are no innocents."''

The woodcutter.

* RebelliousSpirit: She doesn't seem to respect Trame much.
* [[{{WouldHurtAChild}} Would Hurt A Sapling]]: See her quote. Saplings should fear her.


->''"Frote trains a pack of war mutts for the militia commander. He has numerous animals. I suggested to butcher one to make its brothers quarrel over the meat but he said that is not how to train. It would work."''

The other miner.

* AxCrazy
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Exi.
* OddFriendship - Again, with Exi, the comparatively more sane and kind cat lover.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom - If it weren't for Behem, [[spoiler: Matul Remrit wouldn't have had to face the "war elves."]]

->''"Thirty-three sunrises. I do not see the monstrous elf still. If it attempts to ambush the dwarves I will slash its throat meat."''

The dregs' original militia commander.

* ActionGirl
* HeterosexualLifePartners : With Hyte.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice - She dies when she slays a the harpy that Flie couldn't bring himself to, falling to her death as a result.]]


->''"Mar moved commodities into the medical room. I have thread, crutches, cloth, splints, and buckets. However to my sadness there were no enormous corkscrews or serrated discs."''

The butcher/chief medical dwarf.

* AxCrazy
* BackAlleyDoctor - As a butcher, she's the closest thing the initial dregs had to a medic.
* MadDoctor - She quickly develops a liking to the idea of being able to cut animals up and put dwarves back together. She also has some rather strange ideas of how hair transplants might work.


->''"Scheme solved. Office room is used for management with no connection to impending invasion. Leader is not a snake creature in dwarf skin."''

The sheriff.

* ConspiracyTheorist
* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners : With Squib.


->''"The plague spreads through white fields."''

A warrior in the militia.

* ActionGirl : Hog is the first dreg to enlist in the militia under Commander Squib.
* [[spoiler: GoryDiscretionShot : Averted when her POV update takes place as she bleeds out in a hospital bed.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: She is adamant that shields shouldn't be used offensively.
* MadnessMantra : [[spoiler: She has a crazed dream as she dies.]]


-> "I chose a blade iron and a burdened hilt. I am eager to train."

A dreg who survived the massacre prior to Bravemule's foundation, he serves first under Squib, and then as Militia Commander.

* AFatherToHisMen - He never leads his dwarves into fights he doesn't think they can win (and quick to order a retreat if a fight turns sour to save both himself and those under his command,) and seems to care for dreg and clod alike at least while they're alive, since anyone who gets injured he ''orders'' to seek medical attention.
* TotalPartyKill - He tries to avert this when the "war elves" return for another round of sieging. [[spoiler:When locked outside, he has no choice but try to fight against Atrix's forces. Neither he or any warriors in the field with him survive.]]


-> "Drowning fire that murders the crop murders the fire, therefrom I surmise drowning the seeds would unmurder the crop."

A supposed veteran dreg. She serves as the primary planter for Matul Remrit, in spite of her lack of farming knowledge.

* MilesGloriosus - For three planned raids she made all kinds of boasts about how she was going to wreck elf shit. Three for three she got too sloshed to join in raids. [[spoiler: It's implied the raid-turned-ambush that wiped out most of the dregs was slept through the same way.]]
* RightForTheWrongReasons: See her quote.

-> "I do not understand the shield."

A dreg who serves as a Militia Captain for Bravemule.

* AccidentalMurder - [[spoiler: Accidently kills Hog with a severe head injury when he throws his shield at her during a sparring match.]]
* CombatPragmatist - More than willing to use a shield offensively, along with his sword. He's also more than willing to try and beat Squib by ganging up on her with Hog in a sparring match.
* HeroicSacrifice - [[spoiler: He and Lesh sacrifice themselves to buy time for the rest of the militia to escape Atrix's cavalry. Sadly turns into a {{SenselessSacrifice}} when all but two soldiers are killed anyway.]]


Seems to be a dreg herbalist, and deeply traditionally minded.

* [[{{NoTrueScotsman}} No True Dreg]]: She despises what Matul Remrit becomes when it tries to grow by accepting clods exiled/migrating from Dreadlion.
* RevengeByProxy: [[spoiler:It appears she releases a berserk Kalu to try and force the surviving population back on the road, and kill those she feels are traitors to the name "dreg" in the process, without getting her own hands dirty.]]


-> "I snoozed with deer creature on region one grass. If dreg snoozed on grass it would think "What magnificent sky fires at night! I should snooze on grass and not on bed." "

A dreg hunter who later serves as sheriff.

* Understatement: He beat three yaks to death - breaking a crossbow in the process - because he was ''"flustered."''


A clod-turned dreg who joins the militia out of desire for booz and an apparent eagerness to fight.

* BloodKnight: He has an extreme desire to fight based on his entries.
* SpiritedCompetitor: Overlapping some with {{BloodKnight}}, He seems to be a very competitive dwarf in his military endeavors, wanting to be the first among the militia-clods to accomplish something noteworthy.
* TheRival: Appears to consider Trumpet to be his, based on his complaints of the war mule's alleged kill-stealing in Reast's War Legends.


A clod-turned dreg who joins the militia for both the perks and to protect others.

* ActualPacifist: He declares himself to be a "peacer," their term for pacifists, before joining the militia. He even decides death is preferable to fighting or killing even in self-defense [[spoiler: and is killed by a harpy as a result not long after enlistment.]]
* AnAxeToGrind: He was briefly shown wielding an iron war axe as his weapon.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He seemed to at least realize that sometimes others have to die so that his loved ones may live, and joined the militia as a result.
* Martial Pacifist: Tries to become one.


[[folder:The "War Elves"]]

A contingent of human soldiers/mercenaries sent to assault Bravemule, lead initially by thier apparent commander Serus, and then by the Hammerwoman Atrix.

* VillainHasAPoint - The reason the "war elves" are besieging Bravemule in the first place is because Behem murdered one of their caravans.


->''"I wish we had not fatally beaten the Milker close to camp, but a year has almost passed and we had a good time about it then."''

* BadBoss - He clearly doesn't care much for his men, since Hein regularly beats his soldiers without his orders.
* BadassMustache
* QuicklyDemotedLeader - Following the miraculous and spontaneous appearance of Atrix's "qualifications."


->''"I have sudden and immense respect for Atrix, where before there was none."''

* ActionGirl
* BadassMustache - Directly leading to her meteoric rise among the ranks of the "war elves."
* CurbstompBattle - On both ends.
* GirlsWithMoustaches - Presumably made from some treebark and some spare time.
* LuredIntoATrap - [[spoiler: Trame allows Atrix to lead her troops straight into two ambushes that appear to cost her at least three men that she and her troops otherwise crush easily (what with there only being three trained soldiers left by that point - Timd, who actually knew how to use his crossbow as a hunter, and the only two survivors of the militia, Japa and Gheim.) And then they get jumped by a good-sized group of demons.]]
* MadeOfIron - Very few can tank getting two crossbow bolts lodged in thier upper bodies/shoulders without collapsing from pain, usually due to the resultant bone damage, nevermind still have full use of both arms.

-> "Hein beat a young Soldier, committing all manner of violence and brutality, and destroyed many of the teeth."

A subordinate of Serus who challenges him to a moustache duel, and loses rather quickly.

* Jerkass - When he's even slightly grouchy he physically takes it out on younger troops.
* TheBrute - Strongly implied to be one of the more physically mighty members of the human force, being able to beat the crap out of/regularly picks fights with multiple members of his unit when irritable.
