The Main Three
The hero of the story, but hero may be a loose term to describe him. Cade was a Jedi Padawan who was separated from his fellow jedi and family when the Sith attacked the Jedi Temple on Ossus. After being rescued by a pirate crew, he became a pirate himself.
Despite his obvious inheritance, Cade doesn't want to know anything about either Jedi or Sith; he just want to be left alone. But as he's about to discover, sometimes things aren't the way one wishes, and that we must take what is given.
Cade's best friend and fellow pirate, Jariah would do anything for Cade. He's an expert in any kind of weapons, especially the rare ones, such as Yuuzan Vong bioweapons, and explosives.
The third member of Cade's crew, Deliah is a Zeltron woman with a knack for mechanics. Has an obvious crush on Cade, given the amount of flirtration she does around him.
The trusty droid that has served the Skywalker line for generations, and is given to Cade partway through the series. Apparently he was owned by K'Kruhk in the meantime. He doesn't receive the usual attention he usually does though, but does get a few gags and plot-important moments.
The One Sith
The main villain of the series, Darth Krayt is a powerful Sith Lord who abolished Bane's Rule of Two to instal the Rule of One. Unlike the other Sith Lords, rather than just gaining power for his own sake, Krayt seeks to bring order to the Galaxy, even if that means to commit genocide. Ruthless and unforgiving, Krayt rules the Galaxy with an iron fist. He used to be a Jedi named A'Sharad Hett, who upon seeing the Republic and the Jedi order fall under Palpatine, plus the Yuuzan Vong invasion, decided to turn to the Dark Side and create a powerful New Sith Order that would keep the galaxy safe and united
- Back from the Dead
- Becoming the Mask: Pretended to be a Sith Acolyte so the Force ghost of XoXaaan would train him.
- Being Tortured Makes You Evil: He was already on his way, but torture at the hands of the Yuuzhan Vong sealed his fall to the Dark Side.
- Big Bad: Of the entire series until the end of War, save for the interim period while he's dead, during which time Wyyrlok handled the role.
- Body Horror: His Vong infection threatens to do this to him.
- Darth Vader Clone: Shares many traits with Vader, down to being a fallen Jedi, though with the twist that he's the Big Bad rather than The Dragon (and his Dragon, Wyyrlok, more strongly resembles Vader's master, Palpatine).
- Dual Wielding
- Early-Bird Cameo: His appearances before Legacy as Darth Krayt, including the Portent of Doom that led to Jacen Solo's Face-Heel Turn, and his Enemy Mine with Luke in Fate of the Jedi against Abeloth.

- My Death Is Just the Beginning: His first death, anyway. His final one ends the war.
- Knight Templar / Well-Intentioned Extremist: His intention is to bring order to the Galaxy more than power for power's sake, which is why the holocron of Darth Bane refuses to help him.

The Empire-In-Exile/Fel Empire
Emperor Roan Fel
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's a fully-trained Imperial Knight and not someone to be taken lightly.
- The Emperor: He has the strength of personality, but his authority is pretty much limited to the select few who follow him out of genuine loyalty. He allowed the military and his moffs to take the controversy surrounding the Ossus Project and run with it to start a war that ended with the galaxy being handed back to the Sith on a platter, and his tenure as emperor on Coruscant lasts only a few days.
- Evil Overlord: Subverted; he's a ruthless but fair ruler, by all accounts.
- This is epitomized in one scene from War in which he subverts the dickery of previous Emperors by choosing not to use chemical weapons on the Sith homeworld. Why? Because he's better than that.
- Then played straight in the last issue, when he goes full Fallen Hero, as he gets so desperate to win, he's willing to use the aforementioned chemical weapon on Coruscant.
- Head-in-the-Sand Management: He really should have known better than to trust Veed and Calixte, or to ally with the Sith during the Sith-Imperial War.
- It's All About Me: As long as he's Emperor when the Sith are finished, he doesn't really give a damn what he has to do to accomplish that goal.
- Killed Off for Real
- Knight Templar
- Psychic Powers
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
- Skunk Stripe
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted. His intentions are to secure his own power, rather than to free the Galaxy. It's what separates him from Gar Stazi.
Empress Elliah Fel
Princess Marasiah Fel
Master Hogrum Chalk
Master Antares Draco
- Bodyguarding a Badass: Comes with being an Imperial Knight under Emperor Roan Fel.
- Bodyguard Crush: On Marasiah Fel.
- Bodyguarding a Badass
- The Hero: Ironically much more so than Cade, the actual protagonist. Antares is very much Lawful Good and wants to serve his emperor, protect Marasiah and stop the One Sith. Despite being sorely tested, he doesn't slide anywhere near as close to the Dark Side as Cade, nor does he allow Emperor Fel to do so.
- Heroic BSOD: After revealing to the Sith vital information, under the false belief that they had Marshia Fel captured.
- Knight Templar
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Whenether Roan Fel takes some morally questionable decisions, he's torn between loyaltly to him and to do what is right. When Fel, in order to extreminate the Sith, planned to use a lethal virus in order to wipe out all life on Coruscant (not knowing that it'll kill everything except the Sith), Antares fights and kills him.
- Praetorian Guard
- Psychic Powers
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the red to Ganner's blue.

One of the ancient fallen Jedi exiled from the Republic after the Hundred-Year Darkness, and an original-generation Sith Lord. His consciousness survived his body's death preserved within his talisman, and he would seek out any powerful force-sensitive to take as a host. By the time of Legacy,
he's spent the last 160 years locked in a battle of wills with his current host, Celeste Morne.
A Jedi Knight from the time of the Mandalorian Wars.
Imprisoned in stasis for 4000 years, she will stop at nothing to safeguard the ancient Muur Talisman

- Action Girl: Par for the course for a Jedi Knight.
- And I Must Scream: Four thousand years in what amounts to a Sith torture coffin, twenty stranded on a barren moon, and another 140 on an empty ship in deep space, with an evil ghost fighting her for control every minute.
- The Beastmaster: She controls Rakghouls via the talisman.
- Death Seeker: Centuries of captivity with a Sith Lord in her head have left her longing for the end.
- Heroic Willpower: Almost 160 years pass between being woken up by Vader and her encounter with Cade. She's been resisting Muur's attempts to control her body for all that time
- No Immortal Inertia: Her body crumbles into dust immediately after she dies.
- Really 700 Years Old: She comes out of stasis a few months after the end of the Clone Wars. She looks exactly the same when she dies, a century-and-a-half later; the talisman having kept her young.

- Bad Boss: While impersonating Yalta Val.
- Cool Mask: Though he was forced to wear it by his master, so he doesn't think it was very cool.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: How the galaxy views him. He's a self-proclaimed Darth, for instance. Which, admittedly, is how it should be.
- General Ripper: While impersonating Yalta Val.
- Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Wore a helmet-like mask while an apprentice and puts it on Val after stealing his identity.
- Rule of Two: It's unknown if he and his master are One Sith or another bunch, but it was clearly just the two of them on that planet.
- The Starscream: As with all Sith to his master. He was also successful.
- Student and Master Team: Was the student to his master. It doesn't last long once he saw his opening, though. Also, from what was seen of it, the dynamic was reversed.
