MiraOwner of a robot junk shop in Europolis, Stark and an acquaintance of the late Burns Flipper from TLJ and the late Olivia de Marco from Dreamfall. Originally from India, now in her late 20-ies.
- Cluster F-Bomb: Or S-Bomb. Some variation of "shit" is easily her most commonly used word. Turns to full-blown F-bombs in Book Two.
- Eyepatch of Power
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Wit. In a ironic reversal, it's Wit who requires Mira's protection, despite his size.
- Hypocritical Heartwarming: Mira teases Wit, but will not allow anyone else to do so.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Wears an old-style leather jacket.
- Iron Lady: You don't fuck with Mira.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her abrasive attitude, she can act quite nice at times, even though she claims she is only doing so begrudgingly. Her Rebellious Spirit also motivates her to come to ZoŽ's aid in her fight against The Conspiracy.
- Like Brother and Sister: Her relationship with Wit. She essentially views him as a younger brother.
- Politically Incorrect Hero: Calls Wit a 'retard' and claims he is probably faking his autism.
WitA humble technical genius in Mira's employment.
- Artificial Limbs: His right leg and left arm.
- Electronic Eyes: His googles make his eyes look permanently yellow.
- Gentle Giant: Physically enormous, wouldn't hurt a fly.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Mira.
- Idiot Savant: Genius with tech, but cannot communicate with anyone but Mira.
- The Silent Bob: He communicates entirely non-verbally.
Dr. Roman Zelenka
Voiced by: Mark HealyZoŽ's psychotherapist who helps her restore her lost memories.
- The Mole: He's been feeding details about ZoŽ to Falk Friedman.
- Ship Tease: Flirting with him is an option.
Voiced by: Miranda RaisonA food vendor in Propast, with whom ZoŽ tries to be friends but their different political agendas can put a strain on their relationship (Nela is a Marxist, ZoŽ supports social democrats).
- Forced Into Evil: Variation. Queenie believes that Nela was tricked, thinking she would set off an EMP instead of an antimatter bomb. However, Nela learned the truth before the bomb went off. She goes through with it, in order to bring WATICorp down. She plays the rest of the trope straight, realizing innocent people will be killed and deeply regrets their lives will be lost.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Played straight, though mostly for style.
- The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: In Book Two, Nela will admit to ZoŽ that her party is having some debate about whether to work with the system or go full-on revolutionary. In her next appearance, she suicide-bombs an EYE checkpoint.
- Unwitting Pawn: Subverted. It's implied during Chapter Three that someone tricked Nela into suicide bombing the checkpoint, convincing her it was just an EMP to disrupt the EYE. However, she figured it out. She detonated the bomb anyway, because WATIcorp would have killed her, covered it up, and triggered another attack if she didn't. She reasons that, since WATIcorp is getting what it wants, they won't bother to cover anything up until it is too late to do anything about it.
SŁleyman "Sully" Sadik
Voiced by: Nathaniel ParkerReza's editor at the Hand That Feeds and ZoŽ's admirer.
- Big Fun: He has a happy, easy-going attitude and likes to jokingly flirt with ZoŽ. ZoŽ implies that part of it might just be him putting on a brave face, since he has recently been going through a rather ugly divorce.
- Carpet of Virility: Of the fat slob variety.
- Intrepid Reporter: He's the newspaper's editor, but he fulfills all of the trope.
Voiced by: Susan BrownThe informal leader of Bricks (essentially, Propast's Chinatown).
- The Atoner: She mentions spending the second half of her long life making up for the mistakes she did in the first one.
- Cool Old Lady: She has managed to keep her businesses out of Mr London's blackmailing scheme, is the most respected person in her neighborhood, has a knack for picking up on subtle things about people, and has a hovering teacup. ZoŽ admits that she kind of want to be Queenie when she gets to be old—not "like Queenie" but actually be her.
- Femme Fatalons: Subverted. She's got them, but she's a nice lady.
- Miniature Senior Citizens: Queenie is an almost comically small old Asian lady.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: If you tell the truth about the Social Democrats possibly being corrupt, she'll refuse to endorse them despite having promised it in return for your help. However, she still owes a favor, and makes it clear she'll pay up if ZoŽ ever needs one.
- The Obi-Wan: Has this vibe for Zoe and Hanna.
Voiced by: Jessica HenwickThe de facto leader of the teenage gang, "The Dragonflies", in Propast, who disappeared several days before Queenie asks ZoŽ to find her. She is a Dreamer like Zoe, although her powers are presumably a lot weaker.
- Astral Projection: Like Zoe, she can project herself into other worlds. Her powers are indicated to be less advanced, though, and she isn't aware of the true scope of what she's doing.
- Butch Lesbian: She's got the punk look down and her love interest is the more conventionally attractive Abby.
- Courier: Her main source of income comes from organizing and making deliveries of goods her clients would rather have goes unnoticed by the EYE.
- Reluctant Ruler: She doesn't like the notion that the other members of "The Dragonflies" look to her as their leader, still she is fiercely protective of them and she is so respected that her word often ends up being the last in an argument.
- Older Than They Look: Her clothes flatten her bustline, and her short stature in comparison to Zoe's Statuesque Stunner makes her look like a pre-teen. Her kissing scene with Abby is a little awkward as a result.
Falk FriedmanA "Corporate Jšger", i.e. a Bounty Hunter employed by corporations to take care of dirty, off-the-books business. He haunts ZoŽ as she is trying to establish a new life in Europolis. Chapter Three shows a different side of him, since he assists Zoe in escaping several EYE operatives, quite possibly at the cost of his own life.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: Classy and elegant in a suit that probably costs thousands.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: His hair is just shy of white. Although the evil part might be debatable. Definitely ruthless, though.
- Corporate Samurai
- Dissonant Serenity: He's completely stoic and placid while gunning down EYE's after Zoe. Even if he's shot in the chest.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Possibly. He can kill without remorse, although he is killing EYE's trying to kill Zoe.
- Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: His introduction has him lighting up a cigarette in a rather sinister manner as he spies on ZoŽ's apartment.
- Icy Blue Eyes: Fits with his job as a hunter.
Voiced by: Jessica HenwickEnu-Mar Sand'ya, Twilight Child, Daughter of Te'a-Mar is a member of the anti-Azadi resistance in the Northlands.
- Deadpan Snarker: Frequently.
- Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: She makes more than a few remarks about Kian being attractive without meaning to.
- Motor Mouth: She has a bit of a problem about knowing when to pause whenever she has started talking.
- Overly Long Name: The girl has quite a lot of epithets (second only to April, in fact).
- Open Mouth, Insert Foot: She has a tendency to blurt out rather embarrassing statements at time.
- Pointy Ears: As befits a Zhid, one of the fantasy races inhabiting Arcadia.
- Pragmatic Hero: She really doesn't like the fact that Kian can choose to let a man who had sex with a young Dolmari go, but she does think it's worth it to have a spy in the Tower.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: She's the wild and emotional red to Likho's (and to a lesser extent, Kian's) blue. She even wears red.
- The Spock: As opposed to Likho's McCoy, she gravitates towards more pragmatic solutions to problems and moral questions, even if she doesn't like it.
- Some Call Me Tim: She knows her name is kind of a mouthful, and since her parents aren't around to make a fuss about it she prefers just to go by "Enu".
- Talkative Loon: Downplayed, but she's kinda out there. And she does not shut up.
Voiced by: Dave FennoyA Dolmari resistance member with a old grudge against Kian that he is still hoping to pay back some day.
- The McCoy: As opposed to Enu's Spock, in a dark sense; despite his stoic surface he often puts Revenge Before Reason, and can therefore be impulsive and rash where Enu usually is able to keep a cool head and think of the bigger picture.
- The Straight Man: Plays this to the more goofy Enu.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: It's not a surprise the blue guy is the stoic, straight-laced one.
- Super Reflexes: If Kian fails to perform the Arrow Catch in Book 2, he does it instead.
- Torture Always Works: A strong believer in this.
- You Killed My Father: He has a vendetta against Kian for the death of his father, which Kian was involved in.
BipA Dolmari street urchin who assists the resistance. His parents were taken were taken to the prison colony by the Azadi.
- Selective Obliviousness: It is implied that Bip on some level knows just how bad the odds of his parents' survival are, but the thought of them being dead is such an Awful Truth that he tries his hardest not to acknowledge it.
- Street Urchin: He has been homeless ever since his parents were taken. While he is Street Smart enough to survive on his own and he claims to be perfectly happy with it, it is pretty evident that he misses his old life.
- You Remind Me of X: Kian frequently notices how much Bip reminds him of himself as a child.
Bandu-Ma-Seri aka "The Mole"
Voiced by: Susan BrownA female Banda who is the leader of Marcuria's criminal underground (pun fully intended).
- Iron Lady: After his dealings with her, Kian comes to understand why she is so feared and respected despite her size, realizing that she is both very clever and strong-willed.
- Last of Her Kind: She explains that the Azadi wiped out the Banda, and the only reason she survived is because she was thought dead.
- Not in This for Your Revolution: She doesn't really like the rebellion, but she likes the Azadi even less.
- Rugged Scar: Has three sets of claw marks across her face.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The presence of the Azadi machine eventually causes her to decide to close up her operation and leave Marcuria, as she senses that something is horribly wrong about it, and she doesn't want to be anywhere near it whenever it is activated.
- Would Hurt a Child: Or let one be killed. She's perfectly okay with killing an innocent Azadi boy to get his message.
- You No Take Candle: Played with. She is actually very eloquent, but her way of speaking is quite peculiar.
Anna aka AlaynaA young lady from Marcuria who meets with Kian in Book Two.
- Action Girl: Not seen in Book 2, but implied by Kian that she knows her way in a fight.
- Dark-Skinned Redhead
- Everyone Has Standards: She's not actually part of the Resistance, but she tips off Kian to an Azadi soldier doing horrible things.
- I Have Many Names: In Book 3, she admits that "Anna" is actually an alias and that she uses a different name in every city she travels to.
- Mysterious Past: Anna can see through Kian's cloaking veil, which is only possible if they know each other intimately. As Kian has no recollection of the woman, it begs the question of who she really is. Her name is Alayna, and Kian rescued her from Vamon as a child.
- Not in This for Your Revolution: She is not part of the Resistance, but she is against the Azadi occupation.
- Ship Tease: She can kiss Kian. Player choice may or may not reciprocate.
- Single-Target Sexuality: Tells Kian that she has loved him since he saved her from Vamon as a child, and has only ever loved him.
Voiced by: Nathaniel ParkerOne of heads of the Azadi's military.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat: Not maliciously so, but he would lock Kian away for his own safety and wait for a chance to expose Vamon and Sahya, even though Kian knows that waiting would be catastrophic.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He knows that something is up with the way Commander Vamon and Sister Sahya runs things in Marcuria. He directly says to Vamon that he really doesn't want to suspect him of any wrongdoing, but he will investigate into the matter until he knows the truth and encourages him to be forthcoming. He is also fully willing to believe Kian when he tells him that Vamon and Sahya are traitors, despite Kian being a traitor himself, pointing out that the fact Kian stands alive in front proves they lied to him.
- Rugged Scar: His face is marked by quite the collection scars. He sure hasn't earned his rank from sitting behind a desk.
Voiced by:A former teacher of Kian's and Anna's, Mother Utana is an elderly woman traveling with the First and General Hami.
- Ambition Is Evil: Subverted. She's shown to be ambitious, she came to Marcuria because it could get her close to the Seat (possibly as a member of the Six). But she's nothing but kind.
- Friend to All Living Things: She took in Kian as an orphan, taught Anna, and it's believed that she will withdraw her support to Sahya if she learns about how magicals are being exterminated.
- Good Shepherd: She's involved in the church, and is saintly and wise.
- Silk Hiding Steel: She uses no violence, never raises her voice. But she can cow Sister Sahya when the latter is being disrespectful, and both Sahya and Vamon are hesitant to cross her.
Voiced by:An engineer involved in the operation of the machinery running all throughout Marcuria.
- Hollywood Nerd: Skinny, with thick spectacles and oversized teeth.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Is horrified when he finds out that the magicals were being sent to prison camps and executed instead of simply relocated.
- Punch Clock Villain: Most things are above his pay grade. He just runs the machinery.
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: He's upset the magicals are being killed, but he's really upset when he learns that it extends to children.
Voiced by:The leader of The National Front for Faith and Family. He is currently running for the post as Leader of the City Watch in Marcuria and it is a Open Secret that he is a collaborator with the Azadi.
SagaA mysterious new female lead, announced ages ago. She appears as a playable toddler in the first interlude at the end of Book One.
- Interspecies Romance: Seems to be a product of one: her father, Magnus, looks human, while her mother, Etta, has green skin and an impossibly stunning figure. Saga, for her part, looks like a regular human baby.
- Missing Mom: During the second interlude, Etta has gone missing. The fact that Magnus doesn't believe she is dead and forbids Saga to go outside the house implies that she has somehow been lost in the Aether.
- Not-So-Imaginary Friend: The spirit of the White Dragon has watched over Saga pretty much since birth, but she is the only one who can see her (and even that seems to be the case only while she is a toddler).
- Walking Spoiler: There is a reason the devs avoided talking about the contents of the prologue and the interludes all the way up until the release.
