This here is a list of characters that appear in Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen
. Expect spoilers.
The hero of March of the Black Queen
. Originally just a warrior that Warren chooses to lead the rebellion to free the land of Xenobia from the clutches of The Empire
. He gathered many allies and liberated the land, and in the Canon
ending, surrendered the throne to the rightful heir, Prince Tristan. He then left to Palatinus, in order to investigate the activities of Lodis. There, he helped out Magnus Gallant and his own Revolution, and later left to Nirdam to liberate it from Lodis.
Tropes associated with Destin:
A Knight from Xenobia, and a good friend of Warren. He is the first ally Destin recruits, and backs the Liberation Army
to the very end.
When the Holy Sword Brynhildr is stolen, Lanselot is sent by King Tristan to the land of Valeria in order to retrieve it from the Dark Knights, under the guise that they're exiled. He meets up with Denam, becoming his first mentor, and enlists in the Walister Resistance. Unfortunately, during the attack at Rhime, he is captured by the Dark Knights, and tortured to the point of insanity, leaving him unable to walk or speak. The Kingdom of Xenobia lists him as "MIA" due to this.
Tropes associated with Lanselot:
A Seer from Xenobia that envisioned the successful liberation of the continent of Xenobia. This vision brings him to seek out Destin Faroda to lead the revolution. He stays with him until the very end of the game, and is one of Destin's most trusted allies.
Warren accompanies Lanselot on his mission to retrieve the Holy Sword, Brynhildr. Warren escapes the attack on Rhime, but becomes ill soon after, bedridden for the remainder of the game. During Denam's last battle, underneath Eden, Warren teleports Denam and his army away from the pull of the Chaos Gate, getting pulled in himself
. He, like Lanselot, is listed 'MIA'.
Tropes associated with Warren:
An Eagle Man from the Charlom District of Xenobia. He's reluctant to join the Liberation Army at first, due to his best friend, Gilbert, being on the opposing side. Once Destin gives him the Wings of Liberty, it reminds him of how things used to be, and he joins the army with the intent to convince Gilbert of his wrongs.
Canopus is one of the men chosen to retrieve the Brynhildr from the Dark Knights. He is the first character to join Denam's army, and acts as a guide to him during much of the game, giving helpful advice and acting as the peace keeper between Denam and Catiua.
Tropes associated with Canopus:
Class: Beast Tamer
Beast Tamer and governor of the Charlom District. He turns over to the Empire in order to protect the people of Charlom from the Empires oppression, an act that infuriates his friend Canopus. He's eventually beaten, and is spared from execution thanks to Canopus' interference. Gilbert then joins the Xenobian revolution, and later he accompanies Destin to Palatinus.
He also later returns in one of the bad ends of Tactics Ogre, whereas he informs Tristan about the upcoming invasion of Lodis to Valeria.
Tropes associated with Gilbert:
- Anti-Villain: As an enemy. Gilbert's only reason to oppose the rebellion is to protect the people of Charlom from further oppression of the Empire.
- Bald of Awesome
- Mayfly-December Romance: Canopus' sister Yulia is romantically interested at him. Not only do the bird people live longer than humans, Gilbert is also already 30 years her senior. Might go to Ugly Guy, Hot Wife, but they're not married yet.
- The Lancer: to Destin in Person of Lordly Caliber.
- Whip It Good: Beastmaster and all.
Deneb Rhode / Rove
The only character to appear in every game in the series, a Hot Witch
who's keen with research about Pumpkin Heads. She starts out as an enemy who's given a place for research for her Pumpkin Heads in the Xytegenian Empire, causing havoc to the locals. She's beaten out by the rebellion, and depending on the player's actions, she may either get executed or spared. If spared, she may ask for some things later and can even join the team.
Canonically, she is spared, because she managed to move to Valeria and opened a store selling a lot of rare items. If Denam bought a lot of orbs, she will offer to join Denam's platoon.
Tropes associated with Deneb:
- Charm Person: Though all witches have this power in Knight of Lodis, she has a special version called "Temptation", which has double the chance of working.
- Evil Is Sexy: Discussed if you spare her in March of the Black Queen. Several characters will chew you out and say that you just spared her because she was hot stuff.
- Heel-Face Turn: She isn't nearly as evil in Let Us Cling Together, and has abandoned her Pumpkin Head experimentation.
- Hot Witch: On a whole different level than the standard witch. As Knight of Lodis puts it, "A Witch and THE Witch, Deneb, are totally different, as different as pumpkin and squash! Do you understand how different they are? Don't get confused!"
- Mad Scientist: As far as Pumpkin Heads go.
- Ms. Fanservice: THE Ms. Fanservice of the Ogre series.
- Playing with Fire: Deneb can come with lots of Fire-based equipments in Let Us Cling Together, depending on the things you sold on her.
- Say It with Hearts: The majority of her dialogue in both Tactics Ogre. She even winks when casting a spell.
- Summon Magic: She can use this Knight of Lodis.

Tropes associated with Aisha:
Formerly a High Monk from a region in Xenobia, she got demoted into a warden in Diaspola. She is the lover of Quass Debonair, and she didn't take rumors of his death well, and started opposing the rebellion just so she could be with Debonair in death.

She is reunited with Debonair for the remainder of the rebellion, but gets left behind when Debonair traveled to Palatinus with Destin.
Tropes associated with Norn:
The daughter of Highland's Lord Hikash Vinzalf and the first female Paladins.

She later ends up confronting her father, besting him in combat and tearfully bidding him farewell. At the end of the rebellion, she marries Tristan and became the Queen of Xenobia.
Tropes associated with Rauny:
A former pupil of Sage Rashidi who rebelled against his master's evil's ways. As a result, he got petrified by his fellow student Albeleo.

The Prince of Xenobia. He was spared from the massacre of the Royal Family, went hiding and after one Gaiden Game
, he eventually stationed himself in the City of Malano, trying to strike against Baron Apros, a traitor to Xenobia Kingdom. He joins the rebellion and fought in various battles, despite learning that his mother got killed. At the end of the rebellion, he is crowned the King of Xenobia, known as White King, and also got to marry the Paladin Rauny, but regretted that Destin had to go to Palatinus rather than continuing to be in service of the Kingdom (though there is no choice).
Unfortunately, years later, the Xenobian treasure, the Holy Sword Brynhildr, got stolen by the Dark Knights Loslorien, thus Tristan sent out Lanselot, Warren and Canopus, along with two Holy Knights, Mirdyn and Gildas, to retrieve the sword under the guise that they're exiled.
Tropes associated with Tristan:
