->Voiced by: Adam Wilson

A boy from the peaceful town of Motorville. Oliver led a simple life until he mischievously snuck out at night to test his car with his friend, which in turn resulted in him falling into the river due to the White Witch's intervention. His mother luckily rescued him, but she suffered a heart attack right after.

Days later, Oliver meets Mr. Drippy after a SwissArmyTears unseals him. He then tells Oliver about the truth regarding his mother, showing him an opportunity to save her by going to another world. Hesitant at first, Oliver takes on the adventure.


* ADarkerMe: [[spoiler:Shadar]]
* AChildShallLeadThem
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Acts pretty mature for someone who is 13.
* BadassAdorable
* BadassCape
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:When he snaps out of his HeroicBSOD, Oliver saves Esther and Swaine from being nearly killed by Vileheart with [[LightEmUp Mornstar]].]]
* TheBeastmaster: Needs "familiars" to fight together in battle.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:When Shadar reveals the truth about his mother, he goes into HeroicBSOD mode and spends several days in bed without waking up (though he's put in an AngstComa for grabbing the sphere holding her "soul"). He reveals to Pea that he feels that his journey was all for nothing since his mother is well and truly dead. It takes a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming montage to get him back on his feet.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: Neato! and Jeepers!
* ChildMage
* TheChosenOne: The "Pure-Hearted One."
* ElementalPowers: Over the course of the game, he gains:
** PlayingWithFire: Fireball and his LimitBreak, Burning Heart.
** AnIcePerson: Frostbite
** ShockAndAwe: Thunderstorm (counts as wind in this game though)
** LightEmUp: Arrow of Light, Mornstar and Astra
** CastingAShadow: Evenstar
** RandomEffectSpell: The Fortune's Fool spell, which can aid your party in a variety of ways, or absolutely fail.
* FarmBoy: At least in nature until Drippy came into the picture.
* FlyingBroomStick: [[spoiler:In the ending, he's seen flying around Motorville with one while looking down at all his friends doing their daily routines.]]
* TheHeart: [[spoiler: Turns out to be his biggest strength for the obstacles he face. It also unlocks the full potential of Mornstar and the spell itself]].
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower
* TheHero
** IdiotHero: Even Drippy gets annoyed with just how simple-minded Oliver can be. Although this seems to be more from him being naive rather than an full-blown idiot.
** KidHero: A polite and mild-mannered one.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:After finding out that his mom and Alicia were one and the same.]]
** [[spoiler: HeroicRROD: As a result, he spends the next several days in a coma. Esther and Swaine beat themselves up over it.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Upon confronting Shadar, he learns that they are Soul-Mates, which means killing Shadar will kill him too. Oliver decides to go through it anyway... until it's Subverted by Shadar himself, who severs the connection between their souls so Oliver can go on living.]]
* InstantExpert: [[spoiler:No wonder his [[ActionMom talent in magic]] is incredibly innate...]]
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Adam Wilson's attempts at a Middle American accent are rather inconsistent to say the least. This does make a bit of sense, though, considering Oliver is the son of a[[spoiler:n apparently]] British woman but lived his whole life in America.
* PintSizedPowerhouse
* PlayingWithFire: One of his first spells, as well as his [[LimitBreak Miracle Move]] Burning Heart.
* {{Reincarnation}}: [[spoiler:As Shadar's Soul-Mate, it's implied he has been reincarnated repeatedly due to the latter's {{Immortality}}. He doesn't remember anything of it, though.]]
* RefusalOfTheCall: He said no after everything was explained to him... until he showed Drippy who his mother was.
* SquishyWizard: Starts out as this but eventually becomes a JackOfAllStats.
* SummonMagic: [[spoiler:After bringing back the Mornstar to its full power, he can [[JustForPun Unleash]] this.]]
* SwissArmyTears: What leads him to unseal Drippy from his doll form.
* TheWatson: Drippy has to tell him everything many times, it drives the doll crazy. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] that Oliver is new to the other world.
* TooDumbToLive: It ''did'' work, but who in their right mind proposes to go up a volcano to stop it from erupting without informing any of the nearby townspeople?

!!Drippy (シズク Shizuku)
->Voiced by: Steffan Rhodri

A fairy from another world who was turned into a doll, which ended up in Oliver's hands by his mother. He's happy to guide Oliver around in order for him to defeat Shadar and bring peace.

* BritishAccents: He's voiced with a feisty Welsh accent.
** However, in the Japanese version of the game, he's given a KansaiRegionalAccent
* CutscenePowerToTheMax: His only use for battles is to support you by casting Tidy Tears (a healing spell that also gives you a defense boost). In cutscenes? Aside from the PintsizedPowerhouse entry, he can also ''catch up to a boat while running at full speed on top of water'' and carries heavy stuff for you.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: He introduces himself as the "Lord high lord" of the fairies
* DemotedToExtra: Drippy used to be a party member that would fight alongside you in ''Jet-black Mage''. In ''White Witch'', he's your guide and offers advice on boss fights for a "Chance!" moment, and can randomly use his Tidy Tears skill during battle.
* DynamicEntry: They could have just gone through the backdoor from the Fairy Mother's entrance, but instead he opts to get shot out of a cannon ''straight into her mouth''.
* ExpositionFairy: He's your source of info, no matter how much Oliver annoys him for his lack of knowledge.
* FunetikAksent : It's strong enough the subtitles transcribe "Your" as "Youer" and "Our" as "Ouer", as well as other words.
* GoshDangItToHeck: He says "flipping" a lot.
* TheLancer
* MotorMouth: Probably a weird case in the English version of the game, but he talks a little bit too fast. No wonder why Oliver is confused many times.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: Though he doesn't fight alongside you, he did ''throw a boss' shield bigger than he is ten times over''.
* PluckyComicRelief
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: If his title is more than a comedic affectation.
* SealedGoodInACan
* VerbalTic: Tidy! He also speaks with an incredibly [[{{UsefulNotes/Wales}} Welsh]] accent and mannerisms.

!!Esther (マル Maru)
->Voiced by: Lauren Mote

Daughter of the sage Rashaad of the other world and Myrtle's soul mate, she was robbed of a piece of her heart until Oliver mended Myrtle's family struggle. As thanks, she accompanies Oliver in his journey to defeat Shadar. Though she wishes to have some kind of good personal reason other than helping Oliver out...


* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: [[spoiler:Very briefly playable when Oliver's in his coma.]]
* BareYourMidriff
* TheBeastmaster: Just like Oliver. Though, she's the only one who can tame familiars.
* TheChick
* FriendToAllLivingThings: From familiars to other fauna, this is what makes her the [[TheBeastmaster tamer]] of the group.
* GirlyRun
* JumpedAtTheCall: Eagerly and immediately after Oliver cures her from Shadar's brokenhearted spell.
* MusicalAssassin: Her attacks involve using the harp a lot.
** MusicMagic
* PluckyGirl: A norm for StudioGhibli's works.
* [[SkirtOverSlacks Skirt Over]] [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jasmine Pants]]
* StatusBuff: Her Songs can enhance the party's abilities.
* SquishyWizard
* WhiteMage
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Swaine.

!!Swaine/[[spoiler:Gascon]] (ジャイロ Jairo)
->Voiced by: Louis Tamone

A traveling thief who causes a few problems for Oliver until he joins his side. For some reason, he's concerned about reaching Hamelin and having a talk with the sage... [[spoiler:He's in a personal turmoil about his younger brother not being himself. After a few hurdles, the two finally make peace once more.]]

* AntiHero: Type II with some qualities of Type III. He starts off as a bit of a jerk, but once Esther and Oliver really get to know him, Swaine becomes very friendly, if a bit snarky.
* BadassNormal: He has little to no magic to speak of, aside from using familiars, with all of his MP moves using his [[CoolGun "Trickshots"]] and has the lowest MP amount of the group.
* TheBeastmaster
* BigBrotherInstinct: [[spoiler:To Marcassin, his younger brother.]]
* BigNo: [[spoiler:When he sees his father dying fifteen years in the past, only in person this time. Ouch...]]
* ButtMonkey
* CatSmile: Can be noticed at certain camera angles.
* DeadpanSnarker
* GrapplingHookPistol: Grappling-Hook ''Lockpick'' Pistol, [[CoolGun actually.]]
* ImpossibleThief: Taken UpToEleven with his [[LimitBreak Miracle Move]] that allows him to ''steal from any enemy 100% of the time''.
* TheGunslinger
* {{Hypocrite}}: Gets called out as one by Esther for [[spoiler: chastizing Pea about abandoning her kingdom. She points out that ''he's'' not exactly one to comment.]] "Ouch..."
* KingIncognito
* LoveableRogue
* MeaningfulName: [[PunnyName Swaine]] seems similar enough to [[AnimalStereotypes "Swine"]] to count as foreshadowing his connection to the Pig-based Hamelin. [[spoiler: Eespecially since the other members of royalty you've met have pun based names, though since it isn't his birth name it might be more of a MeaningfulRename instead. His real name, Gascon, on the other hand can refer to being a boastful person or braggart, fitting his [[RoyalBrat personality]] when he was younger.]]
* MuggleBornOfMages: [[spoiler:This is the main reason Gascon became Swaine, since the emperor of Hamelin also ''has'' to be a great sage Marcassin would end up getting the throne regardless of what he did and also caused him to believe that he was his father's [[TheUnfavorite unfavorite]] so he left home to find his own path.]]
* TheNthDoctor: [[spoiler:This is the present-day Gascon. It's incredible what a life of poverty away from your castle can do to you.]]
* RichesToRags
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* TheSmartGuy
* VideoGameStealing
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Esther.
* WarriorPrince: [[spoiler:Well, he's already renounced it but it still counts.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes
* WellDoneSonGuy: [[spoiler:"I just wanted to make you proud..."]]
* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler:Shadar kills the Emperor while they were off getting Mornstar.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: No older than thirty, but a life of thieving and poverty on the streets means he looks haggard and older.

!!Marcassin (ラース Lars)
->Voiced by: Iain McKee

The prince [[spoiler:and therefore a Great Sage]] of Hamelin. Marcassin is at a complete loss due to his heart being deprived of its belief. Oliver and company aid him to recover his lost belief, and from there, he aids them in their adventure. [[spoiler:He only joins them for real during the White Witch portion of the game.]]

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: [[spoiler:When you meet him fifteen years ago in the past.]]
** BadassAdorable
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: Drops from the sky and teleports Oliver and the gang away when the residents of Ding Dong Dell turn into monsters from the White Witch's manna]].
* {{Bishonen}}
* ChildProdigy: [[spoiler:His sage magic was very developed when he was younger. It's just that he feigned being a novice just that he could stay close to Gascon to avoid either of them to ascend the throne.]]
* CutscenePowerToTheMax: In cutscenes, he's great and everything. [[spoiler: As a playable character, he's an inferior version of Oliver and since the other three party members already have roles (Esther for taming, Swaine for stealing, and [[CantDropTheHero you can't get rid of Oliver]], he's usually TheLoad.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Little Brother Instict]]: [[spoiler: Despite being just a child, he was still protective of his older brother Gascon, to the point of wanting to hide his magical power so that his brother would inherit the throne instead of him.]]
* MeaningfulName: His name is a little used word for a young wild boar, fitting as he is the young [[RedBaron Porcine Prince]] of [[FullBoarAction Hamelin]].
** It may also refer to the obscure FairyTale Prince Marcassin which is about a prince who is cursed with a boar's head.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* SixthRanger
* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler:Shadar is the cause why he doesn't have him anymore.]]

->Voiced by: Lily Burgering

A mysterious girl whom only Oliver can see and speak too. She appears occasionally to warn him and give him assistance on his journey. [[spoiler: She is actually a part of the White Witch.]]


* BuffySpeak
* CheerfulChild: She's always so damn happy.
* GenkiGirl
* GuestStarPartyMember: [[spoiler:Well, since she's a part of Cassiopeia during the final battle, it counts. Also, she does travel with the party for a substantial amount of time, but doesn't fight.]]
* MysteriousWaif
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:She looks about as old as Oliver, but according to the back story, she's really ten thousand years old!]]
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* ThePollyanna
* TokenMiniMoe


[[folder: Antagonists]]

!!White Witch/[[spoiler:Cassiopeia]] (白き聖灰の女王 Shiroki seihai no jōu)
->Voiced by: Jennifer Bryden

The titular villain who harbors great hatred towards Oliver due to him being the world's "Savior", and will do everything in her power to kill him. [[spoiler: Was in fact daughter of the Wizard King, and after his death became the queen of Nazcaa at a very young age and spent most of it sheltered while the corrupt Zodiarch council run the kingdom. When she got older and saw the state of her kingdom, she created the spell of manna to try and save Nazcaa, but it ended up turning everyone but her into monsters that murdered each other, destroying Nazcaa and leaving her all alone. She now seeks to destroy the world and make it anew.]]


* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, she is horrified by all the evil acts she's done to the other world, and promises to make amends to everyone.]]
* BiggerBad: Gives orders to Shadar, and is responsible for the plot being set in motion to begin with via the death of Allie.
* CastingAShadow: Her Falling Star spell, as well as Nightshade.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[spoiler:A very dark, unfunny variant. She spends most of the game talking to what turn out to figments of her imagination made real by her magic. Turns out to be a subversion, she's actually aware the things she's talking, outside of Shadar, aren't real, but spending hundreds of years alone took such a toll on her that she'll settle for having nearly anybody around as long she isn't alone.]]
* GuestStarPartyMember: [[spoiler:She will join you for the final boss battle.]]
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope
* LightIsGood: [[spoiler: Her true form as Cassiopeia.]]
* LightIsNotGood
** DarkIsEvil: A lot of her abilities seem to be dark-based, in a bit of contrast.
** DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler: She uses those same dark-based attacks to help you fight the final boss.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After Pea joins back with her she realize the error of her ways.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:When she reverts back to her true self, she's still as young as she was ten thousand years ago.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:During the final battle, she turns into a leopard-type creature.]]
* OrcusOnHisThrone
* PhysicalGod: She's easily the strongest thing in the setting. Considering she's immortal, can snap her fingers and affect things from across dimensions, [[spoiler: cause worldwide zombie apocalypses singlehandedly in mere seconds and give figments of her imagination life and godlike power of their own without even intending it,]] it may not be too much of a stretch to call her this.
* RedOniBlueOni: Her clothes change color depending on her emotion: Red for anger and Blue for calmness.
* RealityWarper: [[spoiler:Apus, the Zodiarch council, even Pea, are all figments of her imagination made real.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [[spoiler:With terrible results on her part.]]
* SequentialBoss: [[spoiler:Technically, two forms out of three are her.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: [[spoiler:All of the misery in the game can be traced back to her, and she was personally responsible for the death of Allie. But after the Manna catastrophe that she personally unleashed left her all alone, it's hard not to feel bad for her. It gets even harder when she ''[[TearJerker breaks down crying]]'' after her OneWingedAngel form is defeated, and the face under her mask wears a broken, utterly helpless expression. It's easily one of the most pathetic, heartwrenching sights in the game, considering what she was like during 90 percent of the story.]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: Everyone doesn't realize she exists until about 90% a way through the main plot, as she sends Shadar to do all of her dirty work, and he never mentions her.
* UnmovingPlaid: Her cloak has [[StarSpangledSpandex the entire galaxy!]]
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: [[spoiler:Believes that the world should be destroyed because its flawed.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:When the party reveals that she can't just remake the world just because she doesn't like it, she goes berserk. After she is defeated in her OneWingedAngel form, she loses all composure and collapses into a sobbing wreck.]]
* VoiceOfTheLegion
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:All the many, many tragedies in her life have driven her into believing that the world isn't fixable and should be remade into something that wouldn't have the cataclysm of Nazcaa happen again.]]
* YinYangBomb: Wields both dark and light magic.

!!Shadar/[[spoiler:Lucien]] (ジャボー Jabō/[[spoiler:Natius]])
->Voiced by: Brian Protheroe [[spoiler: and Oliver Mason (as Lucien)]]

The Dark Djinn, who was dubbed "Executor", and charged with bringing destruction towards the other world by the White Witch.

* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:In his final moments, its revealed that Shadar wanted to bring peace to the world, knows that many of his actions are wrong but feels he must do commit, and it's possible that he was doing it while he was the Dark Djinn. Alicia says that the other world was a much better place while Shadar was in power than how it was when she was a child.]]
* BadassBaritone
* ClimaxBoss
** SequentialBoss: In a game with relatively few of them. He has ''three'' phases!
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:One you get to see in flashback after his defeat. Put simply, he used to be a WideEyedIdealist, until he was forced to take part in a horrifying war. He refused to kill innocent civilians and helped a young girl (who turned out to be Alicia) escape, and his superiors had ''his entire hometown burned'' as punishment. Needless to say he crossed the DespairEventHorizon after that.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: To make sure no one stands up against him, such as the standard JRPG LaResistance, he steals pieces of the hearts before they can even form a resistance.
** He also ''destroys'' the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Wand]] capable of defeating him at the first chance he gets. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for him, he had a [[TheStarscream Starscream]] who could TimeTravel.]]
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:In the DS version, he was the actual final boss. However, the game continues in the PS3 version to reveal himself as TheDragon towards the White Witch.]]
* TheDragon: Of the White Witch.
* TheDreaded: By everyone in the other world.
* DespairEventHorizon -> JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope -> StartOfDarkness
* DoomedHometown: Unlike examples of this trope, his ''own superiors'' did this to him as a ''punishment!'' All for letting an innocent child live.
* ElementalPowers:
** PlayingWithFire: [[spoiler: Which looks somewhat similar to Oliver's Burning Heart, only blue.]]
** AnIcePerson
** BlowYouAway
** CastingAShadow
* EvilCounterpart: To [[spoiler: Oliver]]. Literally.
** His [[CastingAShadow Evenstar]] spell to Oliver's [[LightEmUp Mornstar]]. [[spoiler: Which Oliver himself can use after defeating him.]]
* EvilCripple: Downplayed: he leans very heavily on a cane, his posture is stooped, and he gives off an air of being physically decrepit.
* [[spoiler: EvilMakesYouUgly: He looked like a normal teenager in the past, but when you finally see him unhooded in the present his face is aged and withered. Once he reunites with Alicia's spirit, who convinces him there's still some good in him, he returns to his younger look.]]
* EvilRedhead: [[spoiler:Though he wasn't always evil...]]
* EvilSorcerer
* EvilSoundsDeep
* TheFaceless: His face is completely blacked out and cannot be seen. [[spoiler: At least until his last moments.]]
* FallenHero
* FromNobodyToNightmare
* {{Immortality}}: [[spoiler: On the plus side, this means his Soul Mate in the Otherworld is constantly reincarnated, which Alicia uses as the basis of her plan.]]
* IntergenerationalFriendship: [[spoiler:A very, [[MindScrew VERY]] weird case with Alicia. When they first met she was a child, but as an adult she ends up traveling forward in time and becoming the mother of his AlternateSelf. She reunites with him in child form after his defeat.]]
* MyRevengeIsMercy: [[spoiler:When Oliver defeats him, he decides to sever the connection that exists between the two of them so Oliver will not die with him.]]
* [[LukeIAmYourFather Oliver, I Am Your]] [[spoiler:[[AlternateSelf Soul-Mate]]]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Executor/The Dark Djinn.
* OneWingedAngel
* TeleportSpam: He has a habit of teleporting out of the way whenever you get close to him when you fight him.
* TrapMaster: His "Circles of Hell" attack works like this. [[TooDumbToLive Unfortunately, your allies have an annoying habit of stepping on them.]]
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Platonic example, with Alicia.]]
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: [[spoiler:Wanted to rid the world of war. Ironically through becoming TheDreaded, he pretty much succeeded. An interesting case of a villain invoking this trope without really meaning to.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Alicia suggests he may have been one all along without even realizing it.]]
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: '''''VERY''''' much so. The guy is a faceless, DangerouslyGenreSavvy EvilSorceror with ''unimaginable'' power, with MindRape as his go-to weapon of choice.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: A kinda sorta drudic-ish one.

!!The Zodiarchs

A council of twelve who serve the White Witch.


* EasternZodiac: Each wears a mask of one of the 12 animals.
* EnemyWithout: [[spoiler:After Cassiopeia's evil intentions disappeared, they were formed from the remnants of it. [[FridgeBrilliance She is the Wizard King's daughter and a powerful sorceress capable of forming the Zodiarch council through ''sheer imagination''.]]]]
* FinalBoss
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: [[spoiler:They appear flat out of nowhere for the final battle.]]
* TheFaceless: They all look the same, and if that wasn't enough, they all wear masks. They can be told apart on some level, as the masks are of different Zodiac animals.
* StaffOfAuthority: They all have one.
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:They turn on the White Witch at the end, when she lets go of her resentment and hatred.]]
* VoiceOfTheLegion
* WalkingSpoiler

!!Gallus (Shazar)
->Voiced by: Christopher Godwin

Tenth member of the Council of Twelve, he faithfully serves the White Which... or does he? In the DS version he was just a BonusBoss, but the PS3 version expanded his role considerably...
[[spoiler: He turns out to be both the spirit of Cassiopeia's father, and hence the Wizard King himself, as well as the spirit of the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Wand]] Astra. He's also the reason Oliver met Pea, making him the catalyst of most events in the game.]]

* AffectionateNickname: Pea calls him "Doodle-Doo". [[spoiler: Becomes hilarious when you find you ''he's her father''.]]
* AnimalMotifs: He's the Rooster of the Chinese Zodiac.
* BonusBoss: In the DS version. The PS3 version gave him a more prominent role in the main story... [[spoiler: and the fight with him is mandatory this time. But don't worry, he's been heavily [[{{Nerf}} Nerfed.]]]]
** BarrierChangeBoss: He also used different attacks depending on what barrier he has up.
** ElementalPowers:
*** PlayingWithFire
*** AnIcePerson
*** ShockAndAwe
*** DishingOutDirt (He doesn't need a barrier up to use this one)
* MeaningfulName: Gallus means rooster in Latin.
* OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: The reason he fights Oliver. Which means his Barrier Change is actually him [[InvokedTrope Invoking]] FinalExamBoss.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Heroic version.]]
* DeadAllAlong
** SpiritAdvisor: [[spoiler:Of the StealthMentor variety.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: To the White Witch. [[spoiler: His agenda being to ''[[HeelFaceTurn save her.]]'']]
* EnigmaticMinion
* GoodAllAlong
* LivingWeapon
** [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Wand]]
* ReverseMole
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [[spoiler:Yes, even though he's ''dead!'']]
* SaveTheVillain: [[spoiler:Justified. She's his ''daughter''.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: Shadar destroyed Mornstar in the present, but Gallus was able to send the heroes back in time to retrieve it in the past. [[spoiler: Also, he set up Pea's meeting with Oliver. Without that, he would never have been able to go to the Otherworld in the first place!]]
* TheStarscream: Set up as one. [[spoiler: He's actually a ReverseMole.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Well duh.


[[folder:Supporting Characters]]

->Voiced by: Jo Wyatt

Oliver's mother. A kind woman who cares deeply for her child. [[spoiler: She loses her life in a tragic accident and sets Oliver to go on a quest to save her.]]

[[spoiler: In actuality, she is the Great Sage Alicia. As a small girl native to the Other World, she was saved by Shadar before he became evil. When he did, she spent years to become a sage, traveled back (forward?) in time, crossed dimensions to Earth and absorbed Shadar's other self's soul that he had cast off (Oliver) and gave birth to him as part of a plan to save Shadar.]]


* ActionMom
* BritishAccents: Seems a bit incongruous [[EverytownAmerica given the setting]], but not all that unlikely given the historical context of the 1950s. Oliver's about the right age to have been conceived at the end of WorldWarII, when many American GIs got married and brought their wives home with them from overseas. [[spoiler:Of course, she's actually from a medieval fairytale world rather than Britain, but being an English war bride does make a good cover story]].
* HeroicSacrifice: Saves Oliver from drowning in the river, but suffers a heart attack afterwards and dies in the hospital.]]
* KilledOffForReal
* RetiredBadass
* SaveTheVillain: [[spoiler:And she pulls one hell of a plan to do so: going forward in time and ''becoming the mother of his'' ''AlternateSelf''!]]
* WalkingSpoiler

!!King Tom XIV

* MegaNeko
* NeatFreak
* [[PoisonousPerson Poisonous Feline]]: [[spoiler:His claw swipes can poison you during his boss fight.]]
* StockAnimalName
* TurnsRed: [[spoiler:His monster form starts the battle on all-fours and doesn't have much in the way of attacks. Until you deplete his HP and he stands up...]]
* VerbalTic: Like many cat characters, he says words like Purrfect or Purrcisely.

!!Great Sage Rashaad

!!Supreme Sage Solomon

A sage who lives within the Temple of Trials. He assists apprentice wizards and runs a competition called the Solosseum.

* BigGuyLittleGuy: Little guy to his servant, Umbopa.
* {{Jerkass}}: He doesn't have many nice things to say towards Oliver and Esther, or anyone in general.
* MeaningfulName: According to some legends King Solomon was said to be able to tame and control Daemons, in the game Sage Solomon gives Ester an item that lets her do the same thing to get more familiars.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He looks about as tall as Oliver, and almost looks around his age. However, he's old enough that he's trained Rashaad, Khulan, Marcassin and Alicia.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Well, we never see him in action. Regardless, if what everyone says is true, he should be pretty powerful.

!!Great Sage Khulan
->Voiced by: Abigail Thaw

The Great Sage Khulan was once the queen of the Kingdom of Xanadu. After the Kingdom fell to Shadar, she became brokenhearted and proceeded to do the same to the people of Perdida.


* BrainwashedAndCrazy: While brokenhearted, she was being manipulated by Shadar, acting as his "representative."
