Characters / Fear Effect

Hana Tsu Vachel (Mei Yun)

  • Action Girl
  • Badass
  • Bi the Way
  • Black Widow
  • Broken Bird
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her parents were murdered by Triads and she was sold as a sex slave
  • The Hero
  • Sociopathic Hero
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Plucky Girl: She has elements of this. She has a lot of bad stuff happen to her, but she does not quit. She also displays optimism before going out on missions, unlike pessimistic Glas. She tends to give people the benefit of a doubt, which Glas would certainly not do.
  • That Man Is Dead
  • Younger Than They Look: She appears to be in her early 20s. However, there is a puzzle in the first game that reveals quite a bit about her age. She was 5 years old when her parents were killed right in front of her. She is currently 18 years old. She will reach the age of 35, and may even get married and have children by then. She will finally become 88 years old, where she will live on the island that the Eight Immortals live in. Then she will die either at age 88 or sometime afterwards. Are you amazed or surprised?

Royce Glas

  • An Arm and a Leg
  • Badass
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: After mocking one of the Eight Immortals for challenging him to a simple child's game by asking if he should also be crawling through lava, she looks ready to make it so. Glas responds "look I'm rolling!"
  • Buttmonkey
  • Character Development
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Death Seeker: Well, let's think for a minute. He engages in binge-drinking (more like drinking himself to death). He plays Russian Roulette. He engages in these activities in his spare time. What do you think?
  • Drowning My Sorrows
  • The Dutiful Son
  • Jerkass With A Heart Of Gold: In the second game, one of the Eight Immortals notes that "[his] cold face can not hide the warm heart that still beats beneath." He tries to dismiss it, but she still points out he was kind to her when he didn't need to be.
  • Sociopathic Hero
  • Important Haircut
  • Nietzsche Wannabe: Glas definitely is this. When Hana said that she has faith in Rain not being a back-stabber, he goes off on this rant about how "Faith is for the weak!" Would it have killed him to explain why he thinks that?
  • The Lancer
  • Sad Clown
  • Shoot the Dog: He tried to kill the young girl and Anti Anti Christ (Wee Ming) to save the world as well as try to get revenge for Deke's death (that, and Glas seemed to have become mentally unhinged). He shot his brother Drew, but it was an accident. Drew was going to shoot him first (For money and for leaving him with only one arm). Really, Glas should have just punched that whiny brat out.
  • Sibling Rivalry

Jacob 'Deke' DeCourt

  • Awesome Aussie
  • Badass
  • Body Horror
  • The Big Guy
  • Face Heel Revolving Door: Probably because there is more than one of him running loose. Each one of him would have a different personality.
  • Sociopathic Hero
  • Hidden Depths: He definitely has this. One of the Eight Immortals reveals to Glas that Rachel Kazra dabbled in Creating Life, and there were a number of failures. A lot of the failures were flesh-eating zombies that Glas and Hana fought against. Deke is one of the failures. The Immortal points out to Glas that Deke is a puppet of greater forces, but that is not explained or expanded on. Besides, he cannot be all bad if he truly likes Hana, Glas, and Rain. He has not tried to kill them at any rate.
  • Psycho for Hire
  • Token Evil Teammate: When this applies to a team mostly made up of protagonists listed under Sociopathic Hero, that's saying a lot about how brutal this guy is. Deke ends up as a boss fight in both games.

Rain Qin

Jin (Yim Lau Wong)

Wee Ming Lam

Madam Chen

The Foreman


Mr. Lam
