Characters: Folklore

     Main Characters 



  • Adjusting Your Glasses: Natch.
  • Agent Scully: It takes a lot for him to actually accept the supernatural. Even when he travels to the worlds of the dead, he merely shrugs his shoulders and calmly assumes he must be going insane.
  • Badass
    • Badass Bookworm: Definitely does not look the type of guy to beat the crap out of demon souls with his bare hands...
    • Badass Longcoat: Decorated with Celtic knots no less.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Dimensional Traveler: Between the human world and the Netherworlds.
  • Elemental Powers: Has a few less than Ellen.
  • Fighting Spirit
  • Guardian Entity: The Cloak of Sidhe transforms him to be Ellen's Guardian.
  • Intrepid Reporter
  • Lightning Bruiser: While he doesn't have the defenses that Ellen gets from her cloaks and her way of summoning out Folk as shot-blocking turrets, he still has the same defensive Folk as her. Where he really shines is on the offense. While he doesn't do as much damage per hit unless he transforms, his Folk typically attack in combos or rapid-fire attacks (such as his Fomoire which lands a 3-hit field covering punch combo for massive damage, while Ellen's Fomoire does a one-time suicide rush that does less overall damage) and they don't have the start-time. Additionally Ellen's Folk can sometimes attack at strange angles, making for clumsier attacks while Keat's Folk tend to have a tighter, more accurate attacks.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Our Ghosts Are Different
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • Tall, Dark and Snarky: Can come off as this when faced with some of the more insufferable characters.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: When Keats finds out at the end of the game that he is a Halflife and the player discovers that he's not really a reporter at all, his "office" was just another part of the Netherworld, and the magazine he supposedly wrote for folded 17 years earlier. This is further enforced by one of the downloadable quests in which an outsider to the village couldn't see Keats because she didn't believe in magic.
  • Waistcoat of Style


  • Abusive Parents: Herve and her husband Renaldo's death unhinged Regine so much she either abused her daughter or thought in her insanity she was Herve.
  • Not So Different: Like Ellen, her past is dark and troubled, and she came to the village due to her mother. Her destiny takes a much darker turn.
  • Parental Abandonment: Suzette's father died before her birth and her mother has abandoned her prior to the game's events to follow an unhinged plan to kill Ellen in revenge for Herve's death.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: The Dark Impulse quest-line serves to shed some light on the tragedy of her life. At the end, despite all she's done by that point, Ellen simply can't hate not have sympathy for her.
