The main character of Silver Resistance. Shortly before the story began and for reasons not yet explained, Char was transformed into a Charmander and dumped into Ambera. Shortly after arriving, he was found by Saura, and shortly afterward both of them were discovered by an enigmatic Scyther called Scythe, who took them into the Gold Division, one of three bases of operations for the Resistance against the Master. Shortly after, Char discovered he had a powerful ability called the Call, which allows him to mind-control other Pokémon and even contact legendary Pokémon... but the power is difficult to control and arises more often on its own than it does when he needs it to. Char is a strong believer in friendship and is particularly loyal to his close friends, and will defend them to the bitter end.
A kind-hearted Bulbasaur with a loving family, Saura had it easy until the Master came to draft him into his personal army and make him his servant. Terrified, Saura fled, stumbling upon Char and eventually joining the Resistance. While Saura is a firm believer in The Power of Friendship, he can be a bit hasty to blame himself for things that happen, even when they're merely imagined. His one true wish is to reunite with his family again.
Tragic Dream: Saura desperately wants to see his family again. As things stand now, he can't.
An all-around cheerful Raichu, Ray joined the resistance movement due to his admiration for his late brother Rautzen, a member of the movement himself. Once there, Ray ascended through the ranks and eventually joined Team Ember, fulfilling his wish of training under Team Remorse and Scythe. Though he's cheerful almost all of the time and is the first to crack a joke, he often feels a bit down deep inside.
The Big Guy: He is the only member of Team Ember that is evolved.
Boisterous Bruiser: Ray is both the biggest member of Team Ember and, arguably, is the most humorous.
Broken Pedestal: Ray looks up to his dead brother, but the reason he's dead is because he turned traitor to the resistance movement and Scythe ordered him to be killed.
Stepford Smiler: Very mild example of Type A. He's fun to be around, but under his optimistic façade he's got something of an inferiority complex.
A Scyther, leader of one of the most renowned Teams in the resistance, and an important protector to Char and the rest of Team Ember, Scythe is both enigmatic and powerful. He once served under The Master, but regretted it and fled to the resistance movement, where he quickly ascended through the ranks. He instructs the heroes in the use of The Plan but is also extremely competent at fighting as well. Just don't ask him if he's holding any secrets.
Good Counterpart: To Adiel. Both are powerful Pokemon who served the Master faithfully. The difference is that Adiel wanted to be strong, so much so that he shed the code of their clan and evolved. Scythe remained a Scyther, and turned away from the Master when he realised that despite everything he said, he was only destroying Ambera.
A Pidgey that Team Ember ran into at Wanderer's Meadow early in the Season II. Originally a wild Pokemon acting on instinct, it was impressed by Char into thinking him as his master (something that Ray stresses is rare and as unlikely to happen as being born shiny). He was sent to Kanghaskan's daycare and then civility-training in hopes to being a part of Char's team.
Awesomeness by Analysis: Was able to recognize Domo's transformations of a Pidgeot and Staraptor being members of Team Silverwing, and notes how likely a chance he can hold his own against them.
Dumbass No More: All impressed Pokemon start off as a blank slate, essentially needing to learn from society's rules. At disciplinary training, Otto was shown as a delinquent who constantly ate gummis and acted on battle instincts, and at most could only say one word (Char). After the Temporal Tower adventure, Otto officially joins Team Ember and shows he's a very sharp-witted bird, with an intelligence ranking of 11 1/2 stars to boot (the same as Scythe).
The Evil Overlord of Ambera and wreathed in mystery and shadow, The Master is never even seen, much less heard from. Who is he? What does he want from Ambera? And more importantly, how can he be unmasked and stopped?
The Reveal: Like Char, he's a Pokemon transformed into a human, in this case Mewtwo. His form was meant to be a punishment, but it's the source of his strength.
Villainy Discretion Shot: This is bound to happen if he's never seen doing bad things or otherwise. Everyone knows about his horrible actions, but nobody ever sees him doing them... not even his most trusted followers.
One of the Master's most notorious and loyal followers, Adiel is a Scizor feared by the Resistance, who only appears whenever the Master needs something big. Powerful and deadly, Adiel is a killing machine, but he has hidden depths...
Blood Knight: Adiel is supposedly notorious for being the killing arm of the Master.
Non-Action Guy: He hasn't killed anyone on-screen yet, and he's actually talked people out of killing because of the bad circumstances. That being said, he wasn't actually scared or intimidated.
Evil Counterpart: To Scythe. They grew up together in the same clan. When Adron left the Master and became Scythe, the Master searched for a replacement and found Adiel, who desperately wanted power. Unlike Scythe, he believes that the Master is good, and follows him willingly.
An Infernape, the leader of Team Flamewheel, and an old friend/enemy/rival/something of Scythe's. Prince lives in the Emerald Division with Team Flamewheel, where he moved for an unknown reason. He's not part of the Emerald Division at all- he once was, but he left it with many of the Emerald Division to start a new Division, the Silver Division. The Silver Division was massacred within a day. The only survivors are Team Flamewheel, who still call themselves the Silver Division despite living in the Emerald Division.
The Atoner: To make up for the massacre of his Silver Division, he dedicates his life to protecting Lily, and later, Char.
Furthermore: Prince has been wracked with guilt on a subconscious level for his senseless slaughter of an entire village while 'under the influence' of a Watcher's Mind Rape for decades. It's the entire reason he felt such a strong impulse to leave the Gold Division and start over to begin with, after having his memory erased.
The Chessmaster: He gambits his way into the Temporal Tower mission, realises that Scythe and Char were going to go without him, and then manipulates things so that Scythe believes that Temporal Tower has moved, though it never had. In the ensuing confrontation, he forces Scythe to officially let him on the team.
Meaningful Name: He actually is a prince- his father was the servant of the King of a small country. The King ruled the people and Prince's father ruled the Pokemon, but they had a disagreement, and to punish his father, Prince was exiled.
The Mentor: To Char for a short time, as Char never had a Fire Pokemon teach him how to really be a Fire Pokemon.
He's also been Lily's mentor for a long time, so much so that she's pretty much the most important thing in his life.
Morality Pet: Lily is his. It's such an extreme case that Lily is pretty much the only thing keeping him from defecting to the Master out of shame that he failed.
My Greatest Failure: As Lily's mentor, he was in a position to do a lot with the Call. He failed to defeat the Master.
Char: Prince! Prince! Prince, you... there was... You left your frozen flame in the bag?
Prince: So? I don't need that thing anymore. I think it's finally time that it passed hands. I've been looking for a successor to hold the frozen flame for a great while now... and I have seen no successor more fitting than a particular little Charmander who, while growing quite strong, is still learning how to cope with a body that is not truly his own. So... I pass the flame to you, now. Please accept it?
Pyrrhic Victory: Prince formed the Silver Division in response to an overwhelming threat made by the Master's army. Lucario said they should surrender, Prince said they should fight, and as they couldn't agree, Prince formed the Silver Division and fought. They lost, but it was actually a victory, because the Master's army believed that the entire Emerald Division was destroyed.
The Reveal: He was touched by a Watcher and made to massacre an entire village. He requested that his memories of it be removed, and moved to the Emerald Division shortly afterwards.
Replacement Goldfish: After he left the Gold Division, he tried to make Team Flamewheel into a copy of Team Remorse. It didn't work. After he failed to beat the Master with Lily, he tries to do it again with Char to redeem his failure. It doesn't work.
Sadistic Choice: After the Call calls the Watchers into the Emerald Division, Lucario demands that Prince and Team Flamewheel must leave, or they can stay, but they must eject Lily.
Spanner in the Works: To Scythe. By going along on the Temporal Tower mission, he screwed up Scythe's plan beautifully. To be fair, it wasn't his fault- the Master planned it.
A Bayleef, Lily is part of the resistance, and lives in the Emerald Division as part of Team Flamewheel. She was the last bearer of the Call, and was linked to Prince, but they ultimately failed.
Ascended Extra: Originally submitted by Gorsecloud as a potential character for the prequel, Emerald Chronicles. From there, she gets the role of the Pokémon with The Call. THEN, she appeared with a cameo role in the main fic, only she quickly progressed to becoming a major character during the journey to Temporal Tower. She is also a bit of an inside joke, connecting Silver Resistance to Spanning Time, where a character named Lily is the main character Chlora's niece.
The Heart: To the Silver Division. She was the reason it existed in the first place; unfortunately, it didn't work out so well.
The Mentor: To Char. As the only other known Pokemon in the fic with the Call, she decides to go on the Temporal Tower mission so she can tell Char everything he doesn't know. Not knowing things is what screwed up her chance to win; she wants Char to know them so he can win.
Naďve Newcomer: In Emerald Chronicles, having just come to Ambera from the human continents.
Passing the Torch: To Char. She has the Call, but Char's is much more powerful. Lily's adventure is over and she knows it, so she decides to become his mentor.
Spanner in the Works: To Scythe. Scythe's plan is to vanish quietly from the scenes in Temporal Tower so he and Adiel can duke it out without anyone else getting hurt. Unfortunately, Scythe is forced to fight Prince, leading Lily, Ray, Char and Saura to have to pick a side. Lily picks Prince, everyone else picks Scythe, and they end up having to take her out first.
An Espeon who appears early in the story, commissioned by Scythe to test Char and Saura for the Call. After failing to detect Char's call, she runs away into hiding as a Gold Division outlaw. Later, she re-appears and forms a curious bond with Char and his team. Potentially the fifth member of Team Ember, she seems to be doing well in redeeming herself for her mistakes, although some are still suspicious of her.
Phony Psychic: Eva's psychic abilities are less than stellar, so she makes her living as a con artist who uses her powers to help her lie effectively. She can only read minds by asking questions to trigger particular thoughts, and only by close physical proximity to the target. She cannot test for the Call, but had tricked Scythe and the rest into thinking she could in order to keep herself employed.
