Characters: Legend Of The Hunter
    open/close all folders 

    Sebastian 
It's all under control.
Sebastian, Knight-Errant

You are the '''KNIGHT-ERRANT!''' You wander the land, FIRST and FOREMOST, to hunt. And not just any prey.

You are a HUNTER OF DEMONS, and hunting's what you'll do, here, in the LAND OF THE CONQUERED SKY.

An short-tempered former knight who will do whatever it takes to find the ULTIMATE WEAPON and destroy all of the demons. To this end, he has somehow acquired the ability to use Banishing spells, which are theoretically impossible for non-Exorcists.


    Gwydian 
Gwydian: Punching abstract concepts since Chapter 1
GWYDIAN, Jeering Thug

"Oh, Sebastian, relax a little
Things worked out alright up till now, didn't they
I keep telling ya...
You gotta have fun"

Sebastian's hard-drinking, violently impulsive, nigh invulnerable brother. He acts as a bizarre sort of Morality Chain to Sebastian, keeping the latter's own form of recklessness in check.

He also converses freely with the audience, and routinely accomplishes the impossible by demonstrating flagrant disregard for In-Universe laws of reality.


    Esmerelda 
Angst is for sane people.
Esmerelda Windswept, Horizon Walker

ESMERALDA. And WINDSWEPT. Also, you're a HORIZON WALKER! Hell yeah.

You KNEW there was a name somewhere! Names are always the trickiest part. With that, you basically got the key to your entire memory!

And here you were worried you'd awkwardly bemoan your missing memories for-freakin-ever.
An eccentric Horizon Walker who has a tendency to craft whatever she can find into DANGEROUSLY VOUGISH outfits.

She was possessed by The Demon until the brothers helped her turn the tables, trapping it inside her mind. Sebastian continues to help her suppress The Demon in the hopes that she'll tell him what she knows about the ULTIMATE WEAPON.


     Mr. Twiddlefeet 
Mr. Twiddlefeet

You are MR. TWIDDLEFEET, a necromantic abomination filled with an ever-burning hate for all that lives, the sickening fires of impurity and an UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR YOUR OWNER.

A lich alchemized from a mummified cat and some magic dust. It seems to have become attached to Gwydian, who gave it it's name.


     Spider King 
Spider King

Look at that royal rascal! It's so cute with its HAIRY CLAWED SPIDER LEGS clinging to your hair.

A mysterious, crowned spider who seems to be following our heroes.


     Thunder Sword Alastor 
Thunder Sword Alastor

Oh, those damn unpredictable magic swords!

A sentient weapon with lightning-based powers and a compulsion to stab everyone it meets.


    The Demon 
We're gonna need more weedkiller.
The Demon

"It's not your right to KNOW, fucker.
It's your right to fucking die and see your own blood splatter in fascinating ways all over the pavement.
It's your right to LISTEN, because your kind HAS TO BE TOLD."

An especially vicious and powerful demon who possesses Esmeralda. He is also after the Ultimate Weapon.

After the brothers help Esmerelda regain control, he is trapped within her Mental World, slowly regenerating and waiting for his chance to strike back.


  • Alien Kudzu: The Demon's influence in Esmerelda's mind is represented by tentacle-roots.
  • Atomic F-Bomb: Detonates one when Gwydian punches him at 200 mph.
  • Breaking Speech: Takes great pleasure in telling The Other Guy exactly how his Genre Savvy backfired.
  • Combat Tentacles
  • Compelling Voice
  • Evil Laugh: “Chrahahaha!”
  • Genre Savvy: Enough to Double Tap Arthur.
  • Players Are Cthulhu: The Demon kind of freaks out when the audience helps Arthur break his trance.
  • Lame Comeback:
    The Demon: "YOU... YOU WILL NOT MOCK ME!
    CEASE RESISTANCE! RETURN TO SLUMBER, MAGGOT!"
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Mind Rape: Routinely. Sebastian has difficulty keeping his "very thoughts from being ripped apart" when he faces it.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!:
    The Demon: ...THIS! DID NOT! JUST! HAPPEN!
  • Puny Earthlings:
    The Demon: “You're just squeaking and wriggling and breathing through your mouth and doing other disgusting things.
    All that you can do, now, is listen to the voices.”
  • This Cannot Be!: When Arthur breaks free.
    • And again when Sebastian punches him in Esmerelda's psyche.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!:
    The Demon:That's possession for ya, bitch!"
  • Walking Wasteland: Father Lamard mentions that The Demon causes disease and decay wherever it goes.
  • We Can Rule Together: The demon offers to teach Seb how to use the ULTIMATE WEAPON if he spares it. Guess how that goes...
  • We Will Meet Again:
    The Demon: "YOU CANNOT UNROOT ME.
    I WILL NOT GIVE UP MY PREY, AS LONG AS YOU LIVE.
    NO ANGELS, NO EXORCISTS WILL SAVE YOU.
    I WILL LURK IN THE DARK UNTIL THE TIME IS RIGHT.
    REMEMBER THIS.
    WEAKNESS WILL COME OVER YOU AGAIN..."

    Yeah, the USUAL GARBAGE.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: When the Demon discovers that The Other Guy is more influenced by the players’ suggestions than by its own mind control, it “steers” him toward the suggestions that will result in his death.

    King Skal 
Dragons: they're awesome.
Skal, King of the Land of the Conquered Sky

There are many people who might think dragons are pretty awesome. If there'd be a competition in dragon worship, and they'd line up with their dinky dragon admiration, then, yeah, then there'd be ONLY ONE THING TO TELL THEM, and that would be:

YOU HAVE JUST BEEN OUTCLASSED IN EVERY CATEGORY THAT THERE IS.

A cunning, charismatic, dragon-obsessed old man with big plans for his kingdom.


  • Animal Motifs: Skal is completely enamored with dragons, and he puts their images on absolutely everything.
  • The Big Board: Skal's map room is actually quite understated (for Skal), befitting the subtlety of his schemes.
  • The Chessmaster: Complete with pieces shaped like the main characters.
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    • Seen here:
    Helmström: "I believe he knows more than he lets on, my lord."
    King Skal: "Next you'll be saying we probably have a monarchy."
    • And here:
    Prince Rasp: "DO YOU HAVE EVEN THE SLIGHTEST IDEA WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE DOING?!"
    King Skal: "Oh, no, son.
    I obviously have no idea whatsoever what I'm doing here.
    In fact, I've had not a single clue these past sixty years! You've got me.
    Can't hide anything from my clever son, oh boy."
  • Deceased Fall-Guy Gambit: His solution for pinning the assassination attempt on the Exorcists.
  • Fantastic Racism: Skal refers to the Nemeans as "feral beast dregs."
  • Glorious Leader
  • I'll Take That as a Compliment
    Aaron: "Spoken like a true politician."
    King Skal: "Let us both pretend that was a compliment."
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: King Skal's guiding principle, and, by extension, the Land of the Unconquered Sky's.
  • Large Ham: King Skal is a monumental example.
  • Let no Crisis Go to Waste
  • Model Planning: King Skal has an extensive collection of chess pieces that look like the various people he's manipulating. El Vendaval's piece is actually shown as it is being carved.[12]
    It's not that cheap, since it's made of finest quality wood, but it has payed off. No deranged plans spanning centuries without strategic maps and figurines to back 'em up. You would get horribly confused without them! Who did you send to kill who again? Is that a double, triple or quadruple agent over there? Are you furthering your agenda or just dicking around because YOU ARE THE GODDAMN KING HERE?
  • Pretext for War: Intends to use the brothers to blame Beowulf's assassination attempt on the Exorcists, so he can attack them with his citizens' support.
  • Public Execution: His son expresses some relief that King Skal didn’t order any of these during the wedding.
  • Right-Hand Cat: Substitutes a small dragon statue.[13]
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Besides the ubiquitous dragon-themed rebranding, he has been the world's foremost patron of Magitek research. We are told that he has "transformed the Land of the Conquered Sky like no-one else before him."

    Mantikor 
Not pictured: amusement.
Mantikor, aka "The Clown"

EVERYBODY in Videgotto knows this guy. And if you see him and his silly collar, you shut up. RULES. Although you've seen much sillier collars today.

    The General 
Armor won't impede your movement. Not when you're this badass.

The imposing commander of Videgotto's army, and trusted advisor to the king.


    Helmström 
Helmström

"I am currently being humble to my greatest capability."

A spiteful old priest who never stops promoting himself, usually at the expense his arch-rival Lamard. He's no fool, though, and King Skal includes him as one of his closest advisors.


    Prince Rasp 
Dethellio Barbados Incinius Norman Tharin Rasp, Prince of the Land of the Conquered Sky

"Meddling is fun!"

King Skal's kindly, idealistic son who has a habit of offering unsolicited advice to just about everyone.

And I am the solution."

A brusque, dogmatic old demon-slayer who used to be Sebastian’s mentor.


    "Howie" 
Unnamed Priest of St. Howitzer's Remedy Squad, aka "Howie"

"998 STATE OF BODILY DAMAGE MARKINGS!
1256 UNITS REPRESENTATIVE OF ACCUMULATED REGENERATION!
Means 258 in total healed!
Death has been averted once again!"

A goofy young healer who is as clueless as he is good at being shot out of a cannon.


    "Hat Lady" 
St. Smitefire's apprentice, alias "Hat Lady"

"You gotta have hats with feathers in 'em.
And look at that! I've got a fancy talky face portrait up there!
I can talk off ears at a moment's notice! I'm a babbling timebomb, gentlemen!"

Saint Smitefire's chipper, flirtatious assistant. She is a skilled tracker, and possesses fourth-wall breaking abilities that surpass Gwydian's.


  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Blatant Lies:
    Hat Lady: "I'm MESMERIA SCALESHINE, Drakenguard sheriff on duty!

    Hat Lady: "Man, I don't know if I can resist your interrogation methods, you hard-boiled tiger you.
    I am basically reduced to a sobbing, hysterical mess here!
    Watch those drops of truth between all the tears I'm shedding."
  • Smoke Out
  • "You're Not My Type": To Gwydian. Of course, she calls him a "stud" shortly thereafter.

    The Black Brewer 
The Black Brewer, alias MR. SPIDER

"No discount for you! The ACTUAL booze is right here in my hand!

    "Mr. Horse"

Now, he's out for revenge against the brothers because he thinks they killed his comrade Arthur. Taking up the mantle of the hard-boiled detective, he's on a job for King Skal to spy on the brothers. The job comes with a kick-ass dragon, too.


    Jackal 
Jackal the Usurper, aka Honest Jack

JACKAL THE USURPER chuckles, or rather, there's sound coming from his throat that roughly resembles amusement. He just loves screwing with newbies who still haven't realized who's in command now. All of them, used to the old order - until HONEST JACK came along.

He loves it. He loves it every time.

A snide gangster who has a history of assuming control of criminal underworlds wherever he goes. When the brothers pass through his territory, he sees an irresistible opportunity to gain leverage against King Skal.


    "The Other Guy" 
"The Other Guy"/Arthur

"You, a nameless and largely unimportant NPC GUARD, have long since figured out it's only the relevant characters that get into real trouble. Sure, you get beat up for silly reasons occasionally, but the really nasty things never concern an anonymous background character.

It's a tough way of living."

A surly, crooked city guard who tries his best to avoid all plot-related entanglements.


    Guard Commander 
 Guard Commander

It's like he's saying, WATCH OUT, FOLKS. I'VE GOT A BIG SILLY PURPLE SHIELD AND THE FIRST ONE TO MAKE A FAT JOKE GETS IT SLAMMED RIGHT INTO HIS STUPID LAWBREAKING FACE."

    "Jeeves" 
"Jeeves" the Butler Demon

"With the most superficial pleasure, Sir."

Beowulf's "loyal" demon butler. He's generally either directing barely-concealed insults at his master, breaking out in spontaneous song, or both.


  • High-Class Glass
  • The Jeeves: 'Jeeves' is not this.
  • No Badass to His Valet: 'Jeeves' is not impressed by anything Beowulf does.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud:
    Jeeves: “Sigh...
    Very well, Sir. I shall wake up the Yes Men so that you may consult with them.”

    Jeeves: "Shwoop-a-shawoop-da-shooooshoooooo
    YEEEEAAAAA-YYYEEEE-HEEEAAAAAAA"
  • Servile Snarker: The fact that his master has been known to kill his subordinates for completely imagined insults does little to temper his derision.

The Merchant

The merchant insinuates that he's looking forward to doing business with you again. The very thought sends chills down your spine. SOMEHOW.

A shady (and very enterprising) street vendor.
