Flintlocke is a dwarf warrior who, strangely enough, sees himself as a hunter. As such, he uses ranged weapons for most of his more powerful attacks, but also uses hammers, maces, and other blunt weapons. Despite this, he has a surprising success rate with his odd tactics, generally ending up with a One-Hit Kill.
The Healer Who Doesn't Do Anything: He cast spells three times in the comic. Twice he cast Inner Fire, a buff, on himself, and he resurrected Flintlocke's dead ram. The fourth time he kills Cheri and the Forsaken Shadow Priest.
Kathrena is a Night Elf hunter, and is Flintlocke's unofficial girlfriend. Their relationship is a tumultuous one at best, since she has a high respect of nature and he has a propensity to use small furry mammals as ammunition. She is a highly skilled archer who can take down most opponents with a single arrow to the throat or chest, leading her to admit that maybe hunters need to be nerfed. She used to have a pet spider named Ittsy Bittsy who tried eating Flintlocke's face on their first meeting.
Spirit Advisor: For a short time she and Bloodrose serve as them to Schweitzer.
"I blow through levels like Kleenex!"
Bloodrose is a female gnome mage with almost full Arcanist gear who usually ends up doing all the real work herself. She is the consummate powergamer who "plays this game to win". Flintlocke often calls her a "munchkin". She is such a powergamer that she once gained a level just by talking at length about battle strategy.
Spirit Advisor: For a short time she and Kathrena serve as them to Schweitzer.
The Worf Effect: Easily gets killed by the Shadow Priest because she was out of mana.
"I lewt teh hat."
Lowping is a gnome rogue played by a man who has not been at his keyboard in over a year before returning, leaving his character to be handled by scripts and macros downloaded from a Chinese fileserver that have Flintlocke set on /follow and /assist. He was later revealed to be not a Chinese gold farmer, but an American lawyer who dabbles in gold farming as a hobby with characters across several games. He's stolen the Ultimate Goblin Engineered Weapon four other times before now, although he wasn't at his keys at the time.
Hidden Depths: Oh, yes.For starters, the character is played by a lawyer in Pittsburgh, runs a little goldfarming side business in World of Warcraft (as well as collecting the phone numbers and MySpace of hot women as it plays, which he also sells) and is at least bilingual, as he is capable of understanding french. He's an extreme multitasker, has a level 60 tauren on Bloodhoof and a 55 paladin that he runs simultaneously, a level 59 defiler in EverQuest, an extensive mining cooperation in EVE Online and a monk/elementalist who is a key contributor to the number three ranked North America guild in Guild Wars and is playing at the same time as he's getting a massage and watching television.
His Horde alt, Rigley, is "the richest mage on the server", and got there by trading a stack of peacebloom for a couple of healing potions, which he traded for a piece of chain armor, and yadda yadda - 150,000 gold pieces.
Hoist By Their Own Petard: He gets killed by the Horde party equipped with stuff they bought using a favor he owed one of them.
"I do this to honor my ancestors, who fought and died to grant me this opportunity."
An orc roleplayer who tries to stick to his character, Rok'tar's in-character father is an NPC quest giver who is soon killed by Flintlocke's party, enraging him and motivating him to level up quickly so he can get revenge.
A troll shaman Rok'tar meets in Durotar, Gravy is played by a stoner and is almost always high, and can often be found with a bong or hallucinating. This means he doesn't roleplay very much, although sometimes he will talk with a troll accent. In their first encounter he tells Rok'tar that he made the character so he could get to put funny heads in the ground.
Ascended Meme: Is a food vendor in one of Orgrimmar's inns following Cataclysm.
Supreme Chef: He trained his cooking so high he can provide a full-on banquet. During one such banquet in the middle of a Warsong Gulch march, he served up Rok'tar's owl.
The Shadow Priest
"Life is the disease. I am the cure."
Rok'tar and Gravy met this character while questing. The priest is an experienced gamer, in this respect partly similar to Bloodrose from the Flintlocke comic, although he does not seem to be as obsessed with leveling up and getting the best gear as Bloodrose is. He serves as the guide for the rest of the party.
A blood elf warlock, and a fairly ditzy one. She appears shortly after the introduction of Bun'kar, and the Shadow Priest immediately starts hitting on her and immediately denies that is what he is doing.
Not So Different: Has wrecked havoc around Teldrassil in a manner similar to that and Flintlocke at the start of the story, right down to a Night Elven player doing a scene with his father like Rok'tar.
The PSI Investigators
"What kind of sick freak bludgeons a man to death with a hanky!?"
~The Senior PSI Investigator
A duo of detectives, who are part of the PSI "pween scene investigation" group. In their debut episode, the subordinate detective is referred to as McKenzie, while the head detective remains unnamed. They are both undead and follow the trail of dead people left behind by Flintlocke and his party. While McKenzie always seems to pin down the exact cause of death and deduce Flintlocke's unorthodox methods, his leader will inevitably dismiss his conclusion offhand and instead claim that the victim instead died by some bizarre suicide ritual or other farfetched method. As time goes by and Flintlocke's gang leaves more and more corpses, their theories get stranger and stranger.
Cassandra Truth: McKenzie is usually close to the truth, only for his boss to shoot down his ideas.
The most renowned player there is, his skill is legendary, even Bloodrose considers that he is hardcore and that he makes her look like Doc. He terrorizes game designers who fear what he may post negatively on their forums about their new games, and has been a level 60 priest since the very first day that the World of Warcraft servers went up. His reputation is such that he always shows up saying "BEHOLD!" and gets away with making up new words that everyone else start using right away.
Archenemy: The Shadow Priest considers him to be his.
