Characters from ''WebComic/{{Prequel}}''.


!!!Katia [[PrecisionFStrike Fucking]] Managan
The protagonist of the comic, a female Khajiit who may or may not become the Champion of Cyrodil.

* AccidentalPornomancer: She's a [[UpToEleven ridiculously]] [[AnythingThatMoves easy]] [[LovableSexManiac lay]] when she's [[ButLiquorIsQuicker drunk]], and happens to be an [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]] who becomes totally drunk [[CantHoldHerLiquor after a single drop]].
* {{Adorkable}}
* TheAlcoholic: A recovering one.
* AmbiguousDisorder: [[ImpliedTrope Possibly]] She has legitimate difficulty understanding social situations; most likely justified because of her ''really'' shitty upbringing. She is also [[BadassBookworm amazingly literate]] despite her social difficulties. She also appears to have certain savant-like abilities, like being able to see the numerical length of objects without needing to measure them. In fact, she [[AvertedTrope may not have any disorder at all]]: she could just be [[ dyssemic]]. (Please note that Dyssemia ''isn't'' classified as a disability)
* AnAxeToGrind: Lacking alternatives.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal[=/=]BarefootPoverty: {{Zig Zagged|Trope}}. She's not averse to boots, but due to her lack of funds, she can't afford to just buy her own clothing, and since her outfits tend to go completely missing the instant she gets a drop of alcohol (boots included), her barefooted status flip-flops with every outfit she gets. Young Katia (from her royalty-related nightmares) is also depicted barefoot.
* BadassBookworm: As revealed in both 'Extrapolate' and 'Precede', she's extremely literate.
* BreakTheCutie
* BrokenBird: She gets better once people start putting some trust in her, but up to that point she's basically little more than a nervous sobbing wreck.
* ButLiquorIsQuicker: Her first two nights spent drunk end with her sleeping with a random stranger.
* ButtMonkey: And how.
* CantHoldHerLiquor
** ButLiquorIsQuicker: [[UpToEleven Much, much quicker.]]
** OffTheWagon
* CatFolk: [[ According to the Katia: Excelsior! summary]], Katia is specifically a Suthay-raht Khajiit.
* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: [[ParodiedTrope Katia can get both into and out of any clothing instantaneously]].
* ClassicalAntiHero
* ClothingDamage: Happens to the outfit she got for entering the dancing contest after defeating [[spoiler:the Imp Murderboss]]. Only her gloves actually broke, fortunately, but the implication was the rest could follow unless the outfit was soon replaced.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Only because of the audience typically, though during a brief segment where perspective flips to Quill-Weave then back, it's shown she can be just as odd on her own.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her life is ''really'' shitty and the story has only taken place over the course of about a week, which has also been pretty shitty to her.
* {{Determinator}}
** DeterminedDefeatist: Katia exemplifies the trope to a T.
* [[spoiler:ElementalPunch: In one of her strongest moments, she kills a Greater Impmaster Murderboss with a fiery punch.]]
* FishOutOfWater: Katia, being from Hammerfell, is unfamiliar with both Cyrodiilic and Khajiiti ways. This leads to lots of awkward moments for her.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Who CantHoldHerLiquor.
* HiddenDepths: She's actually surprisingly intelligent. She's a quick learner and has an excellent memory to the point of becoming a fluent speaker in multiple languages thanks to a few one night stands which she doesn't even fully remember. Also, based on [[ Infiltrate]] she either has [[spoiler: a vengeful streak]] or a hidden [[spoiler: heroic side, as she's determined to not only get her stuff out and leave, but also find evidence for how Sigrid has been mind controlling and manipulating the people of Kvatch]]
* [[HowDoIShootWeb How Do I Shoot Fire?]]
* IHatePastMe: Enough to [[ThatManIsDead utterly reject her former self]] and change her name.
* InVinoVeritas: Normally, Katia is a ReluctantFanserviceGirl. A [[CantHoldHerLiquor single sip of ''any'' alcoholic beverage]] abruptly turns her into a [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl completely shameless]] [[LovableSexManiac sex machine]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm
* LoserProtagonist: [[ButtMonkey Definitely]] [[BornUnlucky fits]] [[CosmicPlaything the]] [[TheAlcoholic trope]].
* MeaningfulRename: Her original name is either [[AvertedTrope irrelevant]] or a closely guarded secret, depending on which [[WildMassGuessing fan theory]] proves accurate.
* [[spoiler:MindOverMatter: With the help of the dark elf ghost, she now knows telekinetic mysticism.]]
* {{NEET}}
* NiceJobBreakingItHero
* NoSocialSkills: Katia frequently fails to pick up on social cues, such other's dislike or discomfort. This is [[RuleOfFunny particularly exaggerated]] during her interactions with Rajirra.
* {{Omniglot}}: Can speak Imperial standard, Dunmer, and Dragonish. [[ReallyGetsAround She apparently learned them all from one-night stands]]. Aggy asks her if one of them had a dragonling pet. [[NoodleIncident She]] [[AnythingThatMoves doesn't]] [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction respond]].
* PerpetualPoverty: Enforced by being robbed twice thus far.
* PettingZooPeople
* PingPongNaivete: Part of being a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and also ButThouMust for certain elements of the plot.
* PlayingWithFire
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: It seems like the [[CosmicPlaything Universe itself]] conspires to have her denuded on a semi-regular basis, by everything from [[ClothingDamage battle damage]] to being robbed nude and [[NakedPeopleTrappedOutside left outdoors]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: She's certainly more kitten-like than the actual Khajiits of The Elder Scrolls series.
** Justified in that she is a different sub-species of Khajiit than the ones that appeared in Oblivion.
** [[spoiler: Her flashback to being a child during her second dream shows that little Katia was even more adorable than adult Katia.]]
* SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny: [[DownplayedTrope A mild example]]. She's not at all pleased with her [[ButLiquorIsQuicker inebriated one-night-stands]]. 'Precede' goes into a bit more into the details.
* SquareRaceRoundClass: As a Khajiit born to the Atronach sign [[note]]meaning that she not only has a racial penalty to willpower she also cannot passively regenerate Mana[[/note]], she was born with several severe handicaps towards magic. However, she ''can'' [[EnergyAbsorption freely]] ''[[EnergyAbsorption absorb]]'' [[EnergyAbsorption Mana]], making her a potential [[ManOfKryptonite counter-mage]].
* StartingANewLife: Her overarching goal. However, she spends most of the story failing at this as she continuously falls back into old habits. It must be remembered, however, that [[JustifiedTrope her journey only started days ago]].
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: To Quill-Weave.
* TookALevelInBadass
* WhatDidIDoLastNight: After any amount of [[CantHoldHerLiquor drink]], Katia tends to ''[[ReallyGetsAround do]]'' quite literally [[AnythingThatMoves every man she sees]]. However, she usually doesn't remember any of the details.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Nobility?]]: She has a crippling fear of nobility, to the point that she sees Uriel Septim VII as a demon. It is apparently instinctive as the sight of Martin Septim leaves her frozen in fear even though for all she knows he's just a random priest.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: The Ancestor Ghost basically tells her this.

An Argonian acrobate and writer (and Acrobatics trainer). Was a temporary playable character.

* AscendedExtra: In Oblivion she was just an incredibly minor character involved in a single quest who is otherwise a completely mundane NPC.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Not as an adult, but back when she was "Porcupine Dodger", she only wore wraps that didn't even cover the feet below the ankles.
* ChronicPetKiller: After Katia accidentally kills her fish, she says not to worry since she only gets pets to watch them die anyway.
* DrowningMySorrows: She was dumped slightly prior to the start of the comic and did not take it well. By this point, it takes at least fifteen glasses of ail to even get a buzz.
* {{Gaydar}}: She's shown to have a pretty literal version of this in one of her spin-off comics.
* LeParkour
* NoodleIncident: She's the one who gave Katia the pineapple for her "trick". And near-instantly regretted it, although we ''still'' don't know exactly what happened.
* NonMammalMammaries
* OnlyFriend: She's the closest thing to a friend Katia's had since arriving in Cyrodiil.
* PettingZooPeople: As an [[LizardFolk Argonian]], of course.
* QuestGiver: The main one.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The young [[UnfortunateNames Porcupine Dodger]] is certainly this in spades [[ when she's excited about something.]]
* SpinOff: Has had three short comics starring her that can be read [[ here]], [[ here]] and [[ here.]]
* [[spoiler: StraightGay]]
* UnfortunateNames: She chooses to translate her name as "Quill-Weave", but its literal meaning in Jel is "Porcupine Dodger" due to a NoodleIncident on her nameday.

!!! Maenlorn & Caenlorn
Bosmer propietors of "The Flowing Bowl"
* FantasticRacism
* HoYay [[invoked]]
** NotBloodSiblings: Also invoked.

* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain


A rather suspicious Nord in charge of the Kvatch Mages Guild.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: Stephane states that Sigrid isn't evil, simply ambitious and opportunistic.
* AscendedExtra: She's one of the survivors of Kvatch in Oblivion.
* TheBeautifulElite
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* CompellingVoice: She is noted to be incredibly charismatic and her Mercantile is 100 in Oblivion. According to Stephane, on top of being extraordinarily charming, she's used alchemy and enchantments to boost her Personality stat to ridiculous levels.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: [[spoiler:Managed to get [[HumanoidAbomination Vaermina]] to paint her mural]].
* FakeUltimateHero: Stephane believes that she is a hero capable of defying fate and preforming great feats due to her incredible powers of persuasion. In the game she's just one of the few survivors of the destruction of Kvatch and her role in the Oblivion Crisis does not go beyond selling potions to the REAL Champion of Cyrodiil (at a steep markup) before they enter the Oblivion gate.
* TheGhost: For a while.
* KarmaHoudini: She will at least survive the invasion of Kvatch.
* MeaningfulName: Sigrid means 'victory,' 'wisdom,' and 'beautiful.'
* MisanthropeSupreme: She believes all people are selfish and terrible and that morality is ultimately just a question of who's best at getting what they want.
* NotSoDifferent: Katia's starting to see similarities between her and Sigrid.
* OpportunisticBastard: She is fully aware she is one, and believes ''everyone'' is this.
--> I'm not better than them. I'm better AT it than them.
* PetTheDog: According to Stephane, she once conned a highwayman (possibly Gharug gro-Upp) out of a priceless diamond, only to donate it to the Kvatch Orphanage later that night.
* TheOjou
* ScrewDestiny: [[spoiler: According to Stephane, she is able to ignore the fate planned out for her.]]
* SummoningRitual: [[spoiler:Once summoned Vaermina, Daedric Prince of Nightmares.]]
* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: According to Asotil.

Captain of the Guard of Kvatch.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* BadassBeard
* BadassBoast:ďIíve been in the guard longer than youíve been alive, breton. Iíve seen frenzied trolls burst forth from the ground, men get ripped to shreds by land-roving dreugh, zombies tear down entire villages with nothing but their teeth, and thatís all in the last two years. I can hit an imp with a bow at three hundred yards, kill a grizzly bear in hand-to-hand combat, and cut a man in half with one swing of a sword. ĎTrembling with fearí isnít in my vocabulary. I handle the fear, so you prissy magefolk never have to see it.Ē
* BrokenAce
* ConspiracyTheorist: His recurring nightmares have caused him to see cultists everywhere.
* DoomedByCanon: Since Gaius is nowhere to be found in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion the game]], it is safe to assume that he perished when the Daedra attacked Kvatch. The fact that the leader of the Kvatch Guard remnants in ''Oblivion'', Captain Savlian Matius, is said to be the highest-ranking guard still alive, further cements this.
* GoodIsNotNice
* ProperlyParanoid: There ''is'' a cultist from the Mythic Dawn right outside the Kvatch gates. If you've played ''Oblivion'', you know [[spoiler:he's planning for a siege of Kvatch that will burn down the town and kill most of the population. This likely includes Gaius himself, seeing as how he's not a character who exists in the game.]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Sworddog.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: What he was implied to be, before his recurring nightmares have reduced him to a paranoid coward that is mocked by his subordinates.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Cultists]]: His recurring nightmares have given him a severe phobia about cultists, causing him to think they are everywhere and making it difficult to trust anyone. [[spoiler:His dreams have gotten to the point where he's resorted to contacting Vaermina, Daedric Prince of Nightmares, in order to discern their meaning.]]

A Breton mage of the Kvatch Mage's Guild. He doesn't take too kindly to Katia.

* [[ForScience For Magicka]]: It's implied later on the reason he's working with Sigrid is to understand what exactly she is. Note too that he's the only person yet shown to be [[spoiler: not under her control.]]
* InTheHood
* JerkAss
* MoralityPet: Claims to serve this role for Sigrid, though he is not always successful in his attempts to [[spoiler:keep her on the right path.]]
* SmugSnake
* WrongGenreSavvy: He evidently sees Sigrid as someone destined for great things and capable of rivaling omnipotent beings. In actuality she's an unimportant NPC in Oblivion.

!!!Brother Martin

* TheDreaded: His mere presence terrifies Katia even though he's just an unassuming priest as far as she knows. Evidently the Septim genetics is just that strong.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: Comes with being Uriel Septim's bastard. It's either this or just instincts on Katia's part that makes her terrified of Martin at sight.

!!!A Completely Ordinary Human Woman
A [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial normal human]] who hangs out in the Kvatch graveyard under a tree.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: Refuses to be named.
* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain

An acrobatic Khajiit that Katia bumps into one night in Kvatch. She has ''very'' little patience for Katia's poor social skills, yet gets roped into her attempt to sneak into Sigrid's home regardless.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal[=/=]DoesNotLikeShoes: Unlike Katia, who's barefoot half the time [[BarefootPoverty simply because she can't buy footwear]], Rajirra is barefoot by choice. She {{justifie|dTrope}}s this by noting it's summer in the south of Cyrodiil. Unfortunately for her, she didn't anticipate the coating of magic-induced snow covering the ground...
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Gives this reason for why she likes Sigrid. Even though Sigrid has her do the same jobs every other employer has her do, Sigrid was the only one who bothered to ask what skills Rajirra had, instead of correctly assuming she had those skills because she is a Khajit.
* BladeOnAStick: Her preferred weapon.
* BrutalHonesty: Is completely up front about how much she dislikes Katia, and pokes a lot of holes in Katia's plan to start a new life.
* DirtyCoward: [[spoiler:She runs off the instant she and Katia are confronted by the Imp Murderboss, and locks the door, preventing Katia from escaping with her.]]
* IdenticalStranger: Katia admits to the audience that Rajirra looks pretty much like her in every way, although it's not certain if this is actually true or if it is Katia's InternalizedCategorism acting up.
* NotSoAboveItAll: [[spoiler:"Oh come on! She called you a 'racial stereotype' for stealing that off the ground and then ''pickpocketed'' it from you?"]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler:She runs away from the Imp Murderboss, and locks Katia in the room with him.]]
* StraightMan: She's much more curt and pragmatic than Katia, and would rather not bother with her at all if she could avoid it. This is not helped by Katia's AmbiguousDisorder and lack of experience in Khajiiti customs (despite ''being'' a Khajiit) leading to several accidental racist remarks.

A young Argonian female whom Katia met when she first entered Kvatch. She is later seen clearing the mess [[DisasterMagnet Katia]] left in the Chapel of Kvatch.
* AscendedExtra: Not that she has much importance in the webcomic either, but in the game she's just a refugee in the camp near Kvatch, with few dialogue lines, no role in any quest whatsoever and no services to offer to the player.
* HiddenBadass: She is a ''level 20 Pilgrim''. To put that into perspective, the typical player will be at best level ''two'' when they reach Kvatch should they start the [[TheQuest Main Quest]] right away. In other words, ''Weedum-Ja could have effortlessly and single-handedly driven the Daedra out of Kvatch, possibly even saving the whole city in the process''. Probably a case of GameplayAndStorySegregation, though.

The ornery Khajiit bartender and owner of a tavern in Kvatch. ''Seriously'' dislikes Katia.
* AllThereInTheManual: His name was only ever given by Kazerad, the author of the comic.
* ButtMonkey: Throughout the comic, he is insulted by (accidental) racist remarks from a member of his ''own species'', has an arrogant human mage barge in dragging said Khajiit that he's previously banned for life, is ''flipped off'' by said mage, is apparently browbeaten into serving them drinks, has one of his bowls [[ bent into a horrible milk taco]], and watches one of his tables get stolen by some random Dunmer ancestral spirit. No wonder he's always upset.
* DeadpanSnarker: After Katia asks him what "you guys" (meaning Cyrodiilic Khajiit) do around Kvatch, he snarks that he wakes up at four in the morning, licks himself clean, and plays with some string until "his humans" move the string to the bar so he'll go there instead. When Katia confusedly asks whether he's joking or not, S'Thengir is ''not'' amused that anyone (especially another Khajiit) would actually believe he was being serious.
* DeathGlare: His default expression when anywhere near Katia.
* DisproportionateRetribution: After Katia accidentally makes some insensitive remarks about Khajiiti culture (as she has spent her whole life in Hammerfell raised far away from most other Khajiit), he bans her from his bar for life.
* HypocriticalHumor: Despite his dislike of being thought of as some common housecat, [[ Katia: Infiltrate]] shows that he sleeps in a giant cat bed behind his bar when Katia peers through the keyhole of his tavern at night.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: When Stephane drags Katia into his bar, he is browbeaten into not only allowing her to stay, but also into serving them drinks while they talk. He spends most of Katia and Stephane's conversation glaring at them angrily before pouring himself a drink and proceeding to get as drunk as he can.

!!!The Count of Kvatch
He's, well, [[NoNameGiven the count]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin of Kvatch]]. He's featured only in [[ [S]Katia: Infiltrate]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Able to detect an invisible Katia entirely by sound, and has skewered many would-be assassins.
* CharacterFilibuster: Once Katia convinces him not to stab her, he begins discussing the many problems he's had ruling Kvatch. Katia fails to interrupt him, at least until [[SuperWindowJump she jumps through a window]].
* RoyalRapier: Draws one on Katia when she passes by.

!!!Gharug gro-Upp
An Orsimer brigand who Katia has off-screen drunken sex with.

* AffablyEvil
** FauxAffablyEvil
* AscendedExtra: As many supporting characters in ''Prequel'', Gharug is one of those: while he doesn't appear in the game itself, if he did, he would have been a generic, nameless highwayman, just like Asotil would have been a nameless Legion Soldier and [[DarkIsNotEvil Dmitri]] a nameless Necromancer.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: An area from his crotch to his knee is pixellated when he's naked.
* CatchPhrase: To get his ''catch'' on, if you know what he's saying.
** [[DontExplainTheJoke He's saying he has a]] CatchPhrase.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: And surprisingly his logic is [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight often flawless]].
* NakedFirstImpression
* PunnyName
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: You don't want to know where he keeps items.

[[FunWithAcronyms A Soldier of the Imperial Legion]] that Katia encounters.

* AllCrimesAreEqual: Pretty much his response to any crime is "kill." And apparently all ''non''-crimes are equal as too, as his response to any non-crime (such as peeing or vomiting in someone's plant) is that it's "perfectly legal under Imperial Law and therefore fine to do".
* BerserkButton: Criminal Scum.
* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: His view of the world comes dangerously close to this (see AllCrimesAreEqual), but apparently he's willing to respond to at least ''some'' crimes (such as drug abuse) with mere imprisonment rather than execution (then again, that was when ''he'' was the criminal, so he might just be a {{hypocrite}}...). The truly scary thing is that he seems to feel that anything that ''isn't'' a crime is "fine to do" in practice. In theory he seems to have ''some'' understanding of what is socially acceptable, but apparently doesn't really ''care''.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: While he is a skilled warrior, he has little concern for social norms as long as they aren't technically against the law.
* CapitalLettersAreMagic: Criminal Scum[[labelnote:*]](such as Gharug gro-Upp, the Green Scourge of the Gold Road)[[/labelnote]], True Justice[[labelnote:*]](which involves lots of Justice Detours, and is helped along by Vital Clues)[[/labelnote]], and other concepts related to his duties as A Soldier of the Imperial Legion[[labelnote:*]](Upholders of Justice and Defenders of this Great Nation and all those who live within its Glorious Borders)[[/labelnote]] are SeriousBusiness and must be capitalized At All Times.
* GuestStarPartyMember: From the road from Anvil to Kvatch.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: If [[WordOfGod Kazerad]]'s comment on [[ this fanart]] is anything to go by, Asotil has a head full of blond hair and (AxCrazy CloudCuckooLander tendencies notwithstanding) a benevolent, brave and courageous heart to match.
* IDoNotSpeakNonverbal: Is evidently completely unaware (or simply heedless) of how much the countess hates when he ''drops dead bodies on the dining room floor.''
* LargeHam
* LawfulStupid: As a parody of the guardsmen of Oblivion, this is a given.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: '''A''' '''S'''oldier '''o'''f '''t'''he '''I'''mperial '''L'''egion.

!!!Nightmare of Emperor Uriel Septim VII
* TheDreaded: In the eyes of Katia, due to her irrational fear of aristocrats.
* HumanoidAbomination

!!! The Ancestor Ghost:
The former guardian spirit of a long line of elfish protectors. After his last descendant dies of his own stupidity, [[FanNickname Aggy]] spent some time haunting his body, then just wandering around, before deciding to search for an appropriate warrior to guardian spirit for. Temporary playable character.
* CrazyMemory: He describes his memory as '"fuzzy," and somewhat exaggerates the strength of Katia's actions in his mind.
* {{Determinator}}: If not one himself, he inspires this in Katia during 'Extrapolate'. In his own words, it is "pushing a broken idea so many times that reality is forced to accept it!"
* FantasticRacism: Considers anyone not a dark elf to be inferior.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Thinks ''Katia'' is a great adventurer.
* InsaneTrollLogic: RUNS on this. It's his entire modus operandi for "thinking like a witch hunter."
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: Half of his explanations of mysticism are actually analogies that don't quite make sense.
-->'''Aggy:''' Iíll level with you here: I have completely lost track of this analogy.
* ObfuscatingInsanity: As 'Aggy: Extrapolate' hints, he's a lot more insightful and profound than he lets on.
* OffWithHisHead: Possibly how he died. While explaining mysticism to Katia, he mentions something about a bridge and riding a horse and getting you head knocked off by the bridge, presumably as part of a metaphor, but then he says "That's not a mistake I'm making a second time" And then he forgets how the bridge fits into the metaphor.
* SpiritAdvisor
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He just kinda vanishes when the tomb he was in fell apart, and reappears later with not much explanation of what happened.

!!!Dmitri Argoth
A necromancer who is accosted by a drunken Katia and ends up having a threesome with her and a skeleton.
* CrazyCatLady: Has several cats (and brought back his first one with necromancy, unwilling to let death take it), and seems a bit enamored of Katia after a mere one-night stand.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Dislikes it when his friends are racist or speciesist.
* NiceGuy: For "a servant to an unholy lich seeking world domination", he's an awfully kindhearted person. After his night with Katia, he leaves her a kind letter, a Potion of Cure Disease he mixed on the spot, and ó to make up for not saying a proper goodbye ó a box of Nord chocolates. When he sees Quill-Weave's distress at the state of her room, he also enchants the skeleton to clean up.
** Later, he feels bad enough about taking advantage of Katia that he composes "a letter of heartfelt apology" (and even signs it with his full name when he would usually make do with a "D"), considers offering her an apprenticeship, considers sending her a gift basket full of magic potions, and is even willing to send one of his old magic items as a goodwill offering ó despite never having pawned any of them off because they carried "a bit too much sentimental value". Of course, this all may be a manifestation of a possible infatuation with Katia, but there's no indication that it's a significant departure from his usual personality. He also has several cats that he cares for very attentively.
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat]]

The whirling tempest of contradictory advice that somehow found its way into [[HearingVoices Katia's head]].
* BrokenBase: InvokedTrope. A trademark of the Audience is its inability to come to a consensus. This invariably leads to fragments of Katia's subconscious swearing to the Nine Divines that the 'majority' of commands opposed an action that Katia has taken.
* ChaoticStupid
* TheKidWithTheRemoteControl: Although not to the degree some elements of the Audience would like. Katia remains the ultimate arbiter of her actions, with the Audience merely providing suggestions in the back of her mind.
