     Main Characters 

The Hero of DragonFable

The player character.

The Hero's Dragon

One of two dragons that hatch from the eggs in the White and Black Dragon Boxes — the dragon from the Black Dragon Box is destined to destroy a world, while the dragon from the White Dragon Box is destined to save the world. Due to a mix-up, Sepulchure and The Hero end up with the wrong dragons. Their attempts to Screw Destiny are foiled by a Prophecy Twist — The Hero's Dragon destroys the planet-sized Super Mega Ultra Darkness Dracolich while the other dragon sacrifices itself to save the world from it.

     Party Members 

Artix von Krieger

A paladin with an uncontrollable compulsion to slay the undead. Prone to making groan-worthy puns.

Robina the Hood

In her own words; "Robina the Hood at your service. Steal from the rich, give to the.... cute little cuddly wuddly forest creatures!" Well, that explains how those monsters got all that gold.
  • Action Girl
  • Badass Princess: In Sir Ano's quest chain, The Hero finds out that Robina is actually the secret identity of King Alteon's second daughter, Princess Victoria.
  • Captain Ersatz: Of Robin Hood.
  • Money Spider: She steals from the rich and gives to the monsters. Apparently, she is the one responsible for most of the gold you find on them.
  • Rebellious Princess: In spite of, or more likely even because of his own career, King Alteon doesn't exactly approve of any of his daughters getting involved in adventuring, which is part of the reason Princess Victoria poses as an outlaw named Robina. In Book 1, she is a bandit that steals from the rich and gives to the monsters. In Book 3, this goes much further. Since her father is working with The Rose to wipe out magic, she has decided to pose as a boy named Cinquefoil to infiltrate The Rose, understand their true intentions, and to some extent, work against them.
  • Samus Is a Girl: In Book 3, she poses as a boy named Cinquefoil in order to infiltrate The Rose. Her disguise is remarkably effective to the point that even her build looks decidedly masculine.
  • Tomboy Princess

Ash Dragonblade

A young inhabitant of Falconreach who dreams of saving a princess and becoming a knight. In the main DragonFable storyline, he's a sidekick to The Hero. In ArchKnight, he is The Hero.

Valencia Surehunter

A rare item hunter who took over the "family business" after her father went missing in search of "The Ultimate Treasure". She is eventually reunited with her father, but he turns out to be a villain.

Warlic

The Blue Mage is one of the most powerful NPCs in the game. In fact, he's so powerful that he rarely interferes in anything because he can't risk his power getting out of control. Has a rivalry with Xan that goes way, way back. He dies in Nythera's first quest chain, but later comes back from the dead to save her from her own mistakes.

Aria

A little girl whose grandmother runs the Falconreach pet shop. She is introduced in a quest where The Hero rescues her from a cave full of Big Creepy-Crawlies (including a Giant Spider that Aria wanted to keep as a pet). She takes over the pet shop after Grams is revealed to have been replaced by a spy.

Rolith

Captain of the Knights of the Pactogonal Table. Loves tormenting The Hero with his insanely difficult Code Monkey Challenges. After the Time Skip, when The Hero finally breaks free of his/her prison, Rolith gives a quick rescue and brings The Hero up to date on recent events.

Sir Ano

A recently knighted Pactogonal Knight who asks The Hero to help him live up to his family's reputation.

Zhoom

A Ranger and an ally of The Hero. He initially works for Sek-Duat XV, but switches sides after being told that Sek-Duat XV doesn't intend to pay him.
  • Badass: He's one of few opponents who fight the Hero more than once in the same quest, manages to fight evenly with him/her, doesn't have any special powers, and still manages to fight alongside him/her without any time to rest.
  • Bishōnen
  • Bounty Hunter
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Genocide Backfire: Sek-Duat XIV hunted the Sand Elves to extinction. Turns out Sek-Duat XIV and Sek-Duat XV are the same person, so when Zhoom helps The Hero defeat him it becomes an example of this trope.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He is an unknowing descendant of Sek-Duat.
  • Human Mom, Non-human Dad: Inverted — his mother was a Sand Elf.
  • Heel-Face Turn: After you finish the Light Orb Saga.
  • It Amused Me: Turns out he knew you were working for La Résistance all along. He didn't turn you in because it was way more fun with you around.
  • Last of His Kind: He is the last Sand Elf as well as the last remaining descendent of Sek-Duat.
  • Pointy Ears: A side effect of being half elf.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Sek-Duat seemingly planned to kill Zhoom to finally complete his genocide of the Sand Elves. Though the truth turns out to be more complicated.

Galanoth

A Dragonslayer and an ally of The Hero. Despite his hatred of dragons, he accepts that The Hero is a DragonLord at the end of the Ice Orb saga. The fact that he seemingly hadn't noticed The Hero's Dragon up until that point is Hand Waved by him claiming he thought the dragon was a horribly deformed dog.

Aquella

The last Water Elf (or so she thinks). She plays an important role in the Water Orb saga.

Tomix

A SoulWeaver and The Protagonist of the Ravenloss saga.
  • The Atoner
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He actually does Evil-elemental damage. He is a broody loner and one of the good guys.
  • Bishōnen
  • Handicapped Badass: Due to his spiritloom breaking at the end Book 1 Ravenloss, he had to cut off his hands and materialize his soul to replace his hands.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Aspar.
    Tomix: He is my closest friend, my SoulAlly. Without him, I would be lost.
  • Sanity Slippage: During the Void Voyage in Ravenloss Saga in Chapter 3, Tomix is more and more obssesed with taking down Envy. And only the player character with other Void ship crewmembers holds him from slipping into fits of madness every so often.
He has some good moments too.

    Temporary Pets 

Twilly

A moglin (and one of the first characters The Hero encounters in the game). Friend of Lady Celestia and occasional sidekick to The Hero.

Zorbak

An evil— uh, I mean ebil moglin who enjoys causing trouble for The Hero.

     The Shadowscythe 

The Shadowscythe

A faction of undead led by Sepulchure.

Sepulchure

The Big Bad of DragonFable until it's revealed that he works for the Mysterious Stranger.

Drakath Slugwrath

Leader of the Dark Wolf bandits, son of the evil king that Alteon deposed, and servant to Sepulchure until he betrays him, merges with Fluffy and becomes Drakath the Darkness Dragon.

En and Tropy

Two servants of Sepulchure. In the Willowshire quest chain, they fuse with Gorgok and become Entropy Dragon.

Fluffy

One of two dragons that hatch from the eggs in the White and Black Dragon Boxes — the dragon from the Black Dragon Box is destined to destroy a world, while the dragon from the White Dragon Box is destined to save the world. Due to a mix-up, Sepulchure and The Hero end up with the wrong dragons. Their attempts to Screw Destiny are foiled by a Prophecy Twist — The Hero's Dragon destroys the planet-sized Super Mega Ultra Darkness Dracolich while Fluffy sacrifices itself to save the world.

Gravelynn

Sepulchure's daughter.

Necrotic Blade of Doom

Sepulchure's sword.

Noxus

The Dean of Necromancy University. The Hero has to stop him from building a massive undead army for Sepulchure.

     The Rose 

The Rose

A cult devoted to bringing about the end of magic and the main threat in Book 3.

Jaania

The former love interest of Xan and Warlic who they accidentally sealed away in ice. After finally being released, she imprisons Xan, Warlic, and the Hero in a block of ice, founds an Antimagical Faction called the Rose and becomes the leader of the Mana Hunters in a bid to wipe out magic.

General Akanthus

Leader of The Rose's mana soldiers.

Magus Hansa

The leader of the Rose garrison near Falconreach. While she very firmly believes in the Rose's cause, she does have some concerns about the Rose's occasional brutality and the corruption in their ranks.
  • Blind Seer: Her eyesight was destroyed in a magical accident, but she can sense the magic, and by extension, the wills of other people.
  • Cursed with Awesome: She views the magic within everyone as a curse. She has been spending much of her time in Surewould forest capturing magical wildlife in hopes of "treating" them.
  • Enemy Mine: She is one of the few Rose members willing to work with the Hero against greater foes.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She is genuinely trying to help Lore. Human settlements have often been attacked by dragons, Necromancers commonly enslave the spirits of the deceased, and her own eyesight was destroyed in a magical accident. As a result, she believes that magic just isn't worth the trouble. Where other members of The Rose try to enslave, imprison, or otherwise get rid of The Hero, she is actually willing to ally with him/her against mutual foes and hopes to bring The Hero to The Rose's side.

Z

The mage in charge of enslaving magical beings.
  • Cooldown: He can throw magical devices at you which increase the cooldown time of any special attacks you are currently trying to recharge.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: He suspects "Edd" (actually the Hero disguising as him) of being a magic user, but just ends up making himself look stupid.
  • Golem: He creates them and uses them as bodyguards.
  • Hypno Trinket: The chains the Rose uses to enslave magical beings are of his design.
  • Jerkass: Many members of The Rose's leadership are Well Intentioned Extremists. But he just seems to take sadistic pleasure in controlling magical beings.

     Other Villains 

Baron Au'Mydas Bayconn

The villain of the 2010 and 2012 Lucky Day wars. Formerly King Alteon's Royal Treasurer, until he was given the ability to turn anything he kissed into gold and promptly went over to the dark side.

The villain behind the Ice Dragon War. His ultimate goal is to steal a Dragon Amulet and become a DragonLord.
  • Animal Motifs: The Dragon.
  • Big Bad: Of the Vilmor Saga.
  • Evil Former Friend: To Vilmor.
  • Freudian Excuse: Frostscythe claims that he was driven to evil because no Ice Dragon would bond with him, supposedly due to him being half Ice Elf. The Hero blows the excuse out of the water by saying that the problem isn't his blood — it's his personality, since he wants to control dragons rather than cooperate with them.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Frostscythe framed Vilmor for his crimes because he was jealous of her talent as a DragonLord and her bond with the mightiest of the Ice Dragons.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He's half Ice Elf.
  • Sinister Scythe
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show

  • Light Is Not Good: He is the guardian of the light orb, and tried to combine its power with Human Sacrifice to attain immortality.
  • My Grandson Myself: He is not in fact Sek-Duat XV, but rather, the original Sek-Duat, who has achieved immortality via lichdom and is covering it up by pretending to be a new descendant every so often.
  • One-Winged Angel: Does this after the Hero destroys an artefact belonging to him, releasing a magnified portion of his power.
  • Our Liches Are Different: He used the Primal Light Orb to become a light lich in his efforts to become immortal. He eventually planned to use Human Sacrifice to recover the benefits of flesh.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He is one of the original guardians of the elemental orbs. In his efforts to attain immortality, he became a lich.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show
  • You Monster!: The Hero and Magus Hansa call him one for having stolen the life force from so many people.

Sphinxter

A lion-like creature that works for Sek-Duat XV.

The Necromantress / Lady Vayle

Noxus's best student, who grew up in the same village as Artix before a mysterious green mist turned everyone in the village into zombies. Vayle became the Necromantress after Noxus tricked her into thinking it was possible to bring her brother back from the dead. She briefly joins The Hero's party to defeat Noxus, then disappears, taking the Darkness Orb (which she has merged with) with her. Tomix later separates her soul from the Darkness Orb.

Sally

A very Creepy Child originating from Moonridge. She eventually takes over the Necropolis, dabbles in Black Magic, and becomes an antagonist for many of the holiday quests.

He starts off as Yulgar's apprentice, then goes down the path to evil after The Hero tries and fails to save his village and family from the evil dragon Akriloth. This attracts the attention of the evil pyromancer Xan, who further poisons his mind against the forces of good. Drakonnan soon becomes one of the most monstrous foes Lore has ever had to face.

A mad pyromancer with a massive grudge against Warlic, who he blames for trapping his Love Interest, Jaania in a crystal.

Greed

The Anthropomorphic Personification of Greed. He first shows up in Mogloween 2009 and later becomes the Big Bad of the Ravenloss saga.

Lust

The Anthropomorphic Personification of Lust. She doesn't show up until the very end of the Ravenloss saga, implying that the storyline isn't quite finished yet.

Envy/Aspar

The Anthropomorphic Personification of Envy. Is revealed to be Tomix's Soul Ally Aspar. Is currently headed for Ynnungaap, towards the void core, for unknown reasons with Tomix in pursuit.

Tropes
  • Become a Real Boy: Pandora was sterile, had lost her husband, and was lonely, so she created a son out of a fragment of her own soul. The result was not human, but a spirit. Because Pandora had created him while she was angry at the world, he grew envious of real humans and even killed a few. His ultimate goal is to become an actual human, and he is currently using Tomix's stolen lifeforce to do so.
  • Big Bad Friend
  • Big Bad: Of the Book 3 portion of the Ravenloss Saga.

     Other Characters 

Alina

The owner of the Mana Potion shop; trains The Hero in alchemy. Her name was originally Alac, but was later changed to Alina.

Cysero

The Mad Weaponsmith of Falconreach (and Warlic's roommate). Pretty much the polar opposite of Knight of Cerebus; when he shows up you know things are about to get silly. His store (Cysero's Superstore of Savings) sells items that can only be bought with Dragon Coins.

The Doomkitten

Grams

Aria's grandmother; the owner of the Falconreach pet shop.
  • Cool Old Lady
  • Fluffy Tamer
  • The Mole: Subverted; it seems like she's a spy for Sepulchure, but then it turns out that it was actually Sabrina disguised as Grams. The real Grams is still on side of good.
  • Never Mess with Granny: In spite of her feeble appearance, she hilariously gives the hero a thorough physical beatdown in a couple quests. Though in a spot of Fridge Brilliance, it turns out that wasn't Grams at all, but a much younger impersonator disguising herself with an illusion.

Hugo

A background NPC in The Locker (you can find him in the Tempest Inn). In the Water Orb saga, he is revealed to be working for Sepulchure.

King Alteon

A hooded orb that replaces the Mysterious Stranger after the Mysterious Stranger is revealed to be Sepulchure's master.

Nythera

Warlic's apprentice, a half-dragon who had her dragon magic locked away after she misused it. She is irritated with Warlic for his slowness to teach her his secrets, so she kills him and steals his magic. She then brags about her newfound power and starts a war by invoking the wrath of the Elemental Avatars. After Warlic comes Back from the Dead and gets her out of trouble, she becomes his apprentice again and gets some Character Development in a quest chain in which she learns she is destined to save the good Void Dragons (the Creatioux) from the evil Void Dragons (the Decadere).

Oishii

A troll The Hero rescues from Drakonnan's lair at the end of the Fire War.

Pandora

The very first Chaosweaver and an elemental spirit currently serving as Tomix's Soul Ally.
  • The Atoner: In her early life, she was greedy and cruel, which resulted in her being estranged from her siblings. She created a "child", Envy, to keep her company, but due to her anger at the world, the resulting spirit was evil. She eventually came to regret her choices and is currently helping Tomix deal with Envy.
  • Repressed Memories: Upon her death, she cast some of her most painful memories into the Void. When Tomix and The Hero land on a physical manifestation of them, she ends up recovering them.

    Alexander's Diary 

Alexander/Xan

An apprentice wizard whose diary The Hero finds in the wreckage of an old, burnt down house. Confirmed by Word of God to be Xan before his Start of Darkness.

Past Warlic

Warlic when he was an apprentice. Not quite the same as the Warlic The Hero is familiar with (he clearly got some Character Development in between the time the diary was written and the present day).

Brump

The wizard who is training Alexander, Warlic, and Jaania.
