     The Player Character 

The Hero of Bowerstone


Rose (Gemma Boyle)


Sister Hannah, aka Hammer (Julia Sawalha)

I'm sorry, Father. Not that I broke my vow. I'm sorry I didn't break it sooner. I never did fit in at this place. We both knew that. And now I'm making a new vow... Lucien will die for what he did to you. I won't break this one."

  • Action Girl: And she's very good at it.
  • Actual Pacifist: At first, unwillingly.
  • Appropriated Appellation: Nicknamed "Hammer," which she doesn't much like, by her fellow monks. When she renounces her vows, she takes the name for real.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: She finds the life of a monk boring and wants to go adventuring. She does so, but only after her father is killed and she breaks her vow of pacifism to avenge him. At the very end, she declares she's sick and tired of violence and just wants to be happy again.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's sweet and chatty, but when her dad gets killed...
  • The Big Girl
  • Brawn Hilda
  • Drop the Hammer: She pulled it off a statue with her bare hands. It is BIG. And made of stone.
  • Gentle Giant: The Hero of Strength and sized accordingly, but originally a pacifist who chafed at her vows because she wanted to do more than pray to defend the well-being of others. Even after she renounces her vow, she remains firmly on the side of the angels. (And she's always pleased to see your dog.)
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl
  • The Lad-ette
  • The Lancer: The first of the Hero of Bowerstone's allies and, by far, the most supportive one.
  • Last of Her Kind: Theresa mentions in Fable The Journey that Hammer was the last remaining member of a ancient Heroic bloodline descended from the Hero Stone, and that it ended when Hammer died of old age without children following the end of Fable II.
  • Pet the Dog: Literally. It's the first thing she does upon seeing him. Apparently the adoration is mutual.
  • Stout Strength: She is a very big lady with a very big hammer that she uses very well.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She will call the Hero out if you choose the wealth option over your family or all the people who died.

Garth (Ron Glass)

  • Badass Bookworm: Oh yes. Garth wanders the world with a pack full of research, and is the foremost expert on the Old Kingdom and its artifacts. Oh, and he obliterated a fleet of ships with magical fire when he got "a little overzealous."
  • Black Mage: Pardon the pun.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Ethnic Magician: The Hero of Will and from Samarkand, a faintly Asian culture (except with dark-skinned people).
  • Heel-Face Turn: He was working with Lucien at the start of the game. At that time, he had no idea he was on the bad guy's side—in fact, his first appearance is his walking out on Lucien because he realizes the latter is crazy.
  • Heroic Neutral: After escaping the Spire, he just wants to return to his research and evade Lucien. Theresa manages to convince him to join forces with the Hero and Hammer to put a stop to Lucien permanently.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Garth resembles his voice actor, Ron Glass.
  • Mage Tower: Has one in Brightwood that was built by a Hero named Stella Malgrave who was killed in the destruction of the Heroes Guild.
  • Shirtless Scene: In the Spire.
  • The Smart Guy
  • Stock Superpowers: His Will abilities:
  • The Stoic: Unlike the more colorful Reaver and Hammer, Garth is extremely dignified and doesn't emote a whole lot (even when he's blowing things up).
  • Volcanic Veins: As a practiced user of Will, his body has become covered in glowing blue lines, much more extensively than the player character will ever have.

    Villains and Allies (If Sparrow is evil) 

Lucien Fairfax

  • Apologetic Attacker: When he kills your older sister and then tries to shoot you dead. He does seem genuinely sorry.
  • And Your Little Dog Too: He starts by killing Rose (the Hero's only remaining family) and mortally wounding the Hero as a child. It just gets worse from there.
  • Big Bad
    • Non-Action Big Bad: Lucien is killed rather unceremoniously in the end either by you or Reaver.
  • Cosmic Retcon: Though his original intentions with the Spire may have been to bring back his dead wife and daughter, he eventually realizes that the world itself was the problem. Of course, the Hero of Bowerstone prevents him from achieving his ends.
  • The Dark Side Will Make You Forget: He started out trying to revive his family with the Spire, but quickly decides to use it to create a world without death or chaos.
    Garth: Give a beggar a million gold, and he'll buy bread until he's full. But then he'll realize that there are other things than bread for sale.
  • Disney Villain Death
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Punctuated by a gunshot.
  • Start of Darkness: Lucien was a genuinely good and competent ruler before the deaths of his wife, daughter and sister. After that, his sanity very slowly begins to erode as his obsession with the Spire increases.
  • Unwitting Pawn: It's implied that Theresa manipulated him into rebuilding the Spire.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Lucien starts out as this, although he gets corrupted and more insane as he continues his quest.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has an epic one:
    What? What is that? What are you doing? You think a mere trinket will save you? Do you think anything can? Stop! Think about what you're doing! I will put an end to chaos! Stop now, you fool! You insect! I order you to stop! Sleep! I command you to sleep! Sleep!
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds

The Commandant

Cornelius Grim




Darius Zing

Great Shard

    Other Characters and Allies (If Sparrow is good) 


  • The Barnum: Subverted. Everything he does is on-the-level, and he helps a lot of people should the Hero aid him.
  • Delusions of Eloquence: Studied a horrendously inaccurate thesaurus to boost his vocabulary. Whoever wrote it hadn't the slightest clue what spelling was. It defined synonyms for nasty as 1: distrafolic, respinacious, aggravitising.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him
  • Killed Off for Real: Damn you, Reaver!
  • Nice Guy

Farmer Giles

  • Badass Grandpa
  • Crusading Widower: The bandit Ripper murdered Giles' wife shortly after he retired due to Giles knowing Ripper and his gang's secret, causing Giles to stop at nothing to bring Ripper to justice.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • I Call It Vera: He had a powerful blunderbuss called "The Enforcer," but buried it in his cellar after he retired.
  • Retired Badass: He used to be a town guard before retiring to his farm.
