Characters in Machine Knight
The hero of the game and the chief engineer at the Royal Research Center in Schutzheim.
- Fish out of Water: The world he comes from is quite different from the world he ends up in. He excuses his weirdness by saying that he's from somewhere beyond the sea and brushing off further inquiries as simply too difficult to explain and of no relevance anyway.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Frain is nice and far too trusting.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: He's even a natural at it, having been a scientist for the first twenty or so years of his life and presumably never having so much as touched a sword, yet taking to it with ease and skill when Aulin gives him one.
- Last Name Basis: When he first introduces himself to Aulin, his two names confuse her, as people in her world have Only One Name. He tells her that Knighthalt is basically a nickname and to just call him Frain.
The first major character you meet, Aulin is a mercenary who likes saving people who get into trouble. She'll save Frain from a group of Panchos outside Col, but won't join until after your first visit to Dandong Castle.
A Sister of the church in Col. She found Frain after his encounter with the Thabitors after he fled outside Dandong Castle, then decided to join the team after Aulin.
An assistant in Frain's laboratory.
"Politics is merely warfare without drawn weapons."
A staff officer at Dandong Castle. When he hears that Col has been sacked, he immediately declares Frain a treacherous spy.
