Tropes Applying to the whole team

Wrandrall

"I am desperately looking for companions for my quest."

A half-demon warrior level 1 from the Chaotic Lands who assembled the team for an obscure quest consisting in exploring an unknown underground known as the Pit of Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!. He tries the best he can to hide his dark origins to his team, fearing (and rightly so) they would no longer agree to team up with him. Though he is potentially powerful, Wrandrall is a coward who will avoid fight as often as possible and attack only if he is sure there is no danger.

  • Ambiguously Brown: His natural skin color.
  • Anti Anti Christ: The whole reason Belial spawned him was to break his prison so he could come back and bring chaos. Let's just say Wrandrall isn't really happy about it...
  • Badass Cape
  • Bad Liar: His attempts to conceal his demonic origins are ridiculously transparent. If the other characters weren't so oblivious, he would probably be screwed.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: He is a coward, his level is laughably low compared to his comrades, and he doesn't even seem to have a clear goal in his life (even his quest doesn't really serve any purpose, and you get the feeling he goes on it because he has nothing else to do). Over the course of the story, though, he proves himself as a noble person and finds an actual purpose.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Parodied; Trichelieu casted a spell on him that gives him a skin color according to his affiliation. White is neutral, Red is Evil, Blue is Good.
  • Combat Pragmatism: His method to gain XP while avoiding fight ? Finishing off enemies after his comrades already made them too weak to fight back.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Even though he's not really an idiot, he is a coward who will only take part in fight if forced or if there are absolutely no danger, and his level is laughably low compared to the rest of the party. Yet, when the others actually get him to fight, he is shown to be a surprisingly good fighter despite being level 1.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He is a dark-skinned, dark-haired half-demon dressed in black armor, and carry a cursed sword as his weapon, yet he is not evil. Nor is he good, he actually starts out as neutral (though he later evolves in Good territory). Notice however that he is still reluctant to reveal his nature to his teammates, implying it's a common idea in this universe that Dark Is Evil.
  • Disc One Nuke: He is a level 1 and as such supposed to be the weakest of the group, yet his sword can slice a Minotaurus in half in a single strike.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: Not really evil, but he apparently inherited the type II variant from his demon blood, seeing how he finds the concept of a Demon Hunter being gutted "for no reason" by a demon absolutely hilarious. His comrads a disturbed by his reaction.
  • Genre Savvy: He is perfectly aware that no sane person would agree to team up with a half-demon, and does his best to hide his demonic origins to his comrads.
  • The Hero
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He is a half-demon.
  • Horned Hairdo: In the comic.
  • I Am Not My Father: Eventually rejects his father's inheritance and chooses to stick with his teammates.
  • The Leader: Or at least is supposed to be so; other than showing the way to the team, he hardly commands them.
  • Lovable Coward: To extreme level; he will actually attempt to avoid anything potentially dangerous if he can.
  • Obviously Evil: Well, he is not really evil, but he isn't exactly good at hiding his demonic/chaotic origins; he dresses in a black armor with Spikes of Villainy, has a Horned Hairdo, and his song in episode 3 is filled with demon and evil-related puns.
  • Pet the Dog: He tries to convince his father into sparing his teammates, and eventually rejects him to get back to them.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: His main spell.

Zehirmann

A Zorlim (Fire Elemental from another plan) level 11. Though he looks a lot like a demon, Zehirman actually is the nicest in the group, and the most moral of them, with a Neutral Good affiliation. He usually acts as the on who prevent the others from acting amoral or silly.

  • Author Avatar: Serves as the author's incarnation in the game. An example of Tropes Are Not Bad.
  • Badass Beard
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He is extremely moral and nice, but still very powerful and easy to irritate.
  • Big Red Devil: He is not a devil nor a demon, but he sure looks like one. And it doesn't really help him...
  • The Comically Serious
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: in the comic, his clothes and weapons are based on the oriental culture.
  • Flaming Sword: His signature weapon.
  • Genius Bruiser: He is the biggest of the group and appear to be the strongest, but he is also a very well-educated person with large knowledge about animals' language and calculus.
  • Gentle Giant: he is kinda rash, but otherwise he is the most moral character in the group.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: By far the nicest character in the team, but also a Genius Bruiser who is on par with Enoriel in matter of culture and strategy.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: to be fair, with a group like his, it's kinda hard to keep a cool head.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • The Lancer
  • In the Hood: Wears one to hide his devil-like appearance.
  • Magic Knight: He is a referred as some kind of "Pyrotechnic Knight." In practice, he is a really good fighter and possess a large set of fire spells.
  • Only Sane Man: He is the only one in the group to almost always keep a non-nonsense attitude, often trying to reason the others when they display silliness or lack of teamwork (and he often succeeds through intimidation).
  • Playing with Fire: His spells are all fire-based.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy
  • Redheaded Hero: Literally; his hair isn't the only part red, his whole skin is.
  • Scare 'Em Straight: Typically uses this method to keep the others from doing stupid things.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: He hates stairs, as his clumsiness makes them hard to descent for him. The narrator refers to them as his kryptonite.
  • Younger than They Look: He is the tallest and the wisest of the group, yet he states in his presentation he isn't even adult yet.

Enoriel

An Elven bard level 11. Cynical and pragmatic, Enoriel is infamous in-universe for often leaving his comrades to die to save his skins, and has seen more than 50 Player Characters die in front of him. He still is a competent fighter.

  • Agent Peacock
  • Berserk Button: Episode 15 reveals Enoriel hates prophecies, to the point the mere fact to mention the word can put him in rage.
  • Camp Straight: He has the typical Elfeminate mannerism, looks enough like a girl for an Ogre to mistake him for one, likes to sing, is regularly mocked for it by Zarakai and apparently has hallucinations of being flirted with by Zehirmann when under the effects of the Stupidogene Mushrooms. Yet, he hates being mistaken for a girl and is as disgusted as the other by Trichelieu's Depraved Bisexual behaviour. He is later revealed to have been in a relationship with female dragon Alia-Aenor.
  • Combat Pragmatism: He is especially proud of this.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Zarakai is his favourite target, but he does it to everyone.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Invoked; DDE actually mistakes him for a girl, much to his annoyance (and to Zarakai's hilarity).
  • Elfeminate: To the point he was mistaken for a girl by DDE.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Even him wouldn't associate himself with anything evil-aligned.
  • The Fair Folk: Compared to the traditional fantasy elf archetype, he is much more cynical and mean, and has few problem with abandoning his teammate when the situation is getting ugly.
  • Genre Savvy: He easily identifies the Fairy as a Doppleganger in disguise.
  • Good Is Not Nice
  • Hypocritical Humor: Laughs at Zehirmann's Dumb Blonde joke on Guertrude, before being reminded by Zarakai that he is a blonde himself.
  • Informed Flaw: Supposely famous for constantly abandoning his teammates when things get bad, to the point he apparently caused the death of fifty persons that way. In the present time, he is never actually seen doing it, except when confronted with Alia-Aenor, where he is quickly stopped.
  • Informed Obscenity: He uses "colombophile" as an insult.
  • Inter Species Romance: He used to be in a relationship with Alia-Aenor, a female shapeshifting dragon. Though he didn't know, and gave up on their relationship when he found out.
  • Jerk Ass: Not the meanest character in the series, but he is still kind of a dick.
  • Lovable Coward: Though unlike Wrandrall, he is at least willing to fight as long as the enemy isn't overly powerful
  • Magic Music: His trademark magic.
  • Mugging the Monster: He has a song about thieves trying to attack him on the road, with predictable results.
  • Nominal Hero: He is not the evillest character in the series, but calling him a "good guy" still is kind of a stretch.
  • Pardon My Klingon: "Raalgamaziel!"
  • The Smart Guy: Though he appears to share this role with Zehirmann.
  • Our Elves Are Better
  • Screw Destiny: The very reason he hates Prophecies.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He is famous for doing this. Surprisingly enough, he never does it with his current teammates.
  • Spoony Bard: Averted; his bard class is extremely useful, thanks to the various Magic Music spells he can cast and his fairly impressive fighting abilities.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: Has absolutely no problem looting from corpses, including his own allies, or resorting to treachery to reach his goals, and is generally quite egoistical in his way to act. However, he never does anything actually evil and sticks to the protagonists' side.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: seems to be so with Zarakaï.

Zarakai

A dwarf master level 11, and Zehirman's best friend.

  • Artificial Limbs: His adamantium leg. He gets his original leg back after his resurrection by Travia.
  • Badass Beard: As expected from a dwarf.
  • Battle Cry: "Tata Yoyo !"
  • Berserk Button: Has several, including touching his beard, touching his mithril ring (see Grave Robbing below) and hearing some innocent words which phonetically sounds like "Nain-Insult" ("Nain" is the French for "Dwarf").
  • Big Eater
  • The Big Guy
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Bullying a Dragon: Almost; he tries to convince the team to attack DDE rather than pay him, even though DDE is a five meter tall Ogre. Fortunately enough, they end up finding a better way.
  • Drop the Hammer: His signature weapon is a hammer.
  • Dumb Muscle/Idiot Hero: Not as stupid as Guertrude, but still, he is not exactly a genius.
  • Good Is Dumb: He is the second nicest character in the group after Zehirmann, and probably one of the least intelligent.
  • Greed: His primary preoccupation is how much they will win in the adventure, and he can de-summon Roger by being reminded he owes him gold.
  • I Ate What?: He ate cat food, to Enoriel's hilarity.
  • Innate Night Vision: He is gifted with the "Infravision" ability, which allows him to see in the dark.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: His sense of strategy rarely goes beyond running toward the enemy while screaming his Battle Cry; often criticized by Enoriel because of it.
  • Literal-Minded: The most likely character to fall for puns, especially if they are related to "Nain" (dwarves) or "pay".
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Well, he's a dwarf, after all.
  • Redheaded Hero
  • Too Dumb to Live: Aside from the obvious Leeroy Jenkins trope, he asks if hallucinogen mushrooms that just caused the entire group to be turned into idiots are comestible.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: with Enoriel. Sort of...

Guertrude

Trichelieu

  • Baleful Polymorph: he gets accidentally turned into a talking wild goose after Roger and Moumoune made him drink his potion, mistaking it for a treatment. He gets better.
  • Butt Monkey: The group despises him so much they were once willing to send him fight a Minotaurus in an attempt to get rid of him, and Zehirman punches him at least several times in almost every episode since his appearance. Granted, he seriously has it coming.
  • Carry a Big Stick: And you can be pretty sure he will not forget to make a Double Entendre about it.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He is the designated Butt Monkey of the team and obviously not a fighter. Yet, when the team attempt to get rid of him by having him face a Minotaurus, he actually wins without even requiring to kill it. Plus he turns out to have a lot of useful items.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Big time; to the point that when the main characters a confronted to a mirror that summons their Foil counterparts, his counterpart was a pure, virgin woman.
  • Dirty Old Monk: Parodied: almost everything he says is a Double Entendre about sex. The others are not oblivious to this, and often punish him for it.
  • Double Entendre: He is basically the French counterpart of Zarbon.
  • The Chick
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: he is a clerk of Travia, Goddess of Household. Seems pretty lame, right ? When he summons her for help, she appears, cleans the slaughter let by Belial and resurrect/heal all protagonists, down to causing Zarakaï's leg to grow back. Just because she didn't like the mess
    • Also, he has the ability to sterilize monsters. Seems useless in a fight... until you know a Minotaurus' aggressiveness is linked to his ability to breed.
    • The incense he uses to purify the temple, annoying his group in the process? Turns out it's a Kryptonite Factor for Belial, preventing him from leaving.
  • Heel-Faith Turn: A non-evil version in his backstory; he used to be a Clerk of Raia, Goddess of Pleasure, but eventually choosed to join Travia's Cult instead due to aspiring to more purity.
  • Hidden Depths: Surprisingly enough, yes. He genuinely wants to leave his past as a Cultist of Raia behind and embrace the Cult of Travia, but his years in Raia's cult have made him so deeply perverted he is constantly torn apart between his aspiration to purity and his pulsions. His conflict finally is resolved when Travia appears to him and reveals that Raia is her twin sisters, meaning their respective concepts (Household and shared pleasure) actually are compatible.
  • The Load: Played with; he starts out as this, but it later turns out he has several spells, objects and materials that ARE actually useful to the adventures. The trope is finally completely subverted when he saves everyone else beside Wrandrall from Belial by resurrecting them with a prayer to Travia.
  • Reincarnation: He has been created by Guertrude's player as a replacement after Guertrude was killed. Lampshade by the characters.
  • Second Episode Introduction: Despite being one of the main protagonists (and one of the most liked by the fans), is first apparition is in the second episode.
  • Sixth Ranger

    The Narrator 

The Narrator

  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Evil Laugh: Usually when something happens to the main characters.
  • Interactive Narrator: Justified, since he also is the game master.
  • Jerk Ass: Though to be fair, he does have reasons to be pissed off, seeing how the protagonists constantly sabotage the game.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: at one point, the Narrator says the characters to not split up, arguing it might be dangerous. They mistake this for caring, but he is quick to reveal he actually just want to avoid having to follow them separately because it will only make the story more complicated.
  • Killer Game Master: Though he almost always fails.
  • Mr. Exposition: He narrates the story, introduces the characters and describes them. Justified, as it's the very point of his existence.
  • The Narrator: obviously.

    Maender-Alkor's inhabitants 

Roger the Bartender

  • Aerith and Bob: His name sounds rather ordinary compared to ones like Zarakai, Wrandrall or Enoriel.
  • Ascended Extra: He started out as the bartender of the Tavern where the main characters met. Later, Zarakai gained the ability to summon him, leading to him getting his own part in the story.
  • Butt Monkey: Gets regularly summoned and stripped thanks to a mistake from Zarakai, forced to wear a ridiculous attire to prevent himself from ending up naked, and his wife has a Hair-Trigger Temper.
  • Instant Messenger Pigeon: The heroes use him that way to warn Maender-Alkor that an army of undead is coming.
  • Naked People Are Funny
  • Summon Magic: Thanks to a misunderstanding, Zarakai gained the ability to summon him whenever and wherever he wants, with the side effect of stripping him of his clothes.

Moumoune

  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Displays this attitude toward Alia-Aenor when she addresses Roger. Granted, considering how Alia-Aenor is described, this might be justified.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: Her signature weapon and running gag.
  • Greed: She is horrified when learning people in her husband's tavern are all dead, and as such won't be able to pay her.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper
  • Tsundere: Her relationship with her husband appears to have shades of this; she keeps yelling at him, and being all angry with him, but she is shown to be actually worried after the first time he disappears.

Kyo Shin Zammurato

  • The Bodyguard: To the Seer.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Introduced as a goofy samurai character with a silly accent who constantly delivers Ice Cream Koans. When we actually get to see him fight, he easily swoops the floor with all of Sacher-Masoch's servants. Obviously, the Seer recruited him for a reason.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Capable of delivering quite subtle snarks in the middle of Koans.
  • Ice-Cream Koan: He delivers this constantly as a Running Gag.
  • Just a Stupid Accent: He even states in a bonus episode that it is not his true way of speaking
  • Katanas Are Just Better
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover: Implied; He appears delighted to find out the cat survived Maender-Alkor's destruction and keeps it along with him for a while. Also, he appears furious in the Christmas bonus when the Seer suggests to throw a cat in the cauldron.
  • Only Sane Man: In one of the Christmas bonuses, to the Clerics. When the Seer suggests to throw a kitty in the cauldron so the little girl will get it, he is the only one to point out the cat will not survive the process, and violently refuses.
  • Samurai

Gloum

    The Seer and the Clerics 

The Seer

Yannosh

  • Back from the Dead: It's part of his job to resurrect people.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Literally, when he tries to defeat Alia-Aenor with the support of all the other Clerics. Predictably, she easily kills them all. He was lucky the Seer had a scroll to revive him, and then allow him to revive the other clerics.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Occasionally toward Bernie.
  • Death Is Cheap: He can resurrect people the same way you would resurrect characters in an actual RPG.
  • Healing Hands: He is the priest of life, and as such can both heal and resurrect people.
  • White Mage: By virtue of being from the cult of Ilo, God of Life.

Bernie

  • Good Is Dumb: God, is he...
  • The Load: Seen as such by Yannosh, and the other characters seem to share his opinion. When he reveals he can use his praying to give light to the others, Moumoune is amazed by learning he can actually be of some use.
  • Love Freak: And it could hardly annoy Yannosh more.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: He is an expert in embroidery.
  • The World Is Not Ready: Parodied; his cult's self-established mission is to take any ancient magic or magic-related object they can find to bury it so it won't "make everything blow up". Problem is, they do so without actually checking what those objects do or are. The Seer and Yannosh find this reasonning completely stupid.

Remi Chelin

  • Blessed with Suck: He has been granted the power to foresee the future, but as a price can't speak in any other way than singing. This made him so annoying to the other Clerics that they ended up trapping him in jail.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He is mentionned briefly by the Seer in an earlier episode as an apparent random pun. He eventually appears in person and turns out to have a major role in the story.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Appears for the first time in jail, where he proceeds to take Sasher Masoch and Kyo in a musical dialogue, much to their annoyance.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Is accidentally freed by the heroes when activating the Elzopean machine.
  • Seer: He is the Oracle of Hesinde.

    Antagonists 

Belial

Mortis/Tormis

"I shall be the Monarch of Souls and Shadows. Death shall follow my steps, the Deads shall follow their King !"

The Sorcerous Overlord in charge of the Undead kingdom of Mortyr. At the beginning of the story, Mortis is sending an army of undead to eliminate the city's population.

Alia-Aenor

A powerful, vicious female dragon who serves as The Dragon to Mortis, and the first antagonist to show up in the story. She possesses the abilitie to turn into a young beautiful, black-haired girl to go unnoticed, and is sent to investigate about the prophecy told by the Seer who said Mortis' army could be stopped by the Pit of Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!. Though she appears as a sweet, girly, teasing personnality, Alia-Aenor is a murderous and cruel enemy who like killing people through overpowerful necromantic spells.

  • Faux Affably Evil: And how.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Her human form is a cute, beautiful young woman with a little girl voice, gentle attitude and a liking for romance. This doesn't prevent her from being probably the most vicious and cruel character in the saga after Belial.
  • The Cameo: She gets a small guest-star appearance in Kingdom Paf as the one Gaz Mask initially tried to recruit as his Dragons.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: According to her, Enoriel and her met and started while they were kids.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Deadpan Snarker: especially during her fight with Belial:
    Belial: I am going to change my plan.
    Alia-Aenor: Because you had one to begin with ?
  • The Dragon: Literally, to Mortis.
  • Dragon Ascendant: As Mortis' heir, she becomes the new leader of his Undead army. Partially subverted in that she is a good guy when she does so.
  • The Dreaded: Used as a running gag; after she proved herself as a dangerous villain, almost everyone who has met her at least once ends up screaming "She's gonna kill us all!" each time she showed up. Hilarity Ensues when she Heel Face Turns.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Her dragon form, to the point we don't know she is a female until she takes her human form.
  • Heel-Face Turn: She becomes an ally to the heroes after Belial killed Mortis, revealed how he possessed/corrupted him, told her who were her parents, and boasted that he killed her mother.
  • Killer Rabbit: When seeing her human form, the narrator is puzzled and saddened to have to use her as a villain, arguing she can't be threatening, since a female dragon with a beautiful human form is too sympathetic. She quickly proves him how wrong he is by mercilessly killing a group of thieves trying to rob her.
  • Oh Crap: Her reaction when finding out her Mass Murder Spell does nothing to Belial. A bigger one when Belial brings Hell around her.
  • One-Winged Angel: Her real form is a giant black dragon. Played with in that she is first introduced in this form and assumes her human form later in the story.
  • Our Dragons Are Different
  • Peek-a-Bangs: In the comic.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: Is eventually revealed to be this to Enoriel.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Her signature spell, "Mort de Masse" ("Generalised Death"), is apparently the most powerful necromantic spell in this universe.
  • Scaled Up: Inverted; her dragon form is her true form.
  • Stripperiffic: Her attire isn't described in the Web Series, but in the comic, she is despicted wearing a bikini armor, a Dangerously Short Skirt and a cape.
  • Tykebomb: Mortis found her as an egg and raised her to be his pupil and second-in-command.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Mortis. during her cameo in Kingdom Paf, she is offered a new job by Gaz Mask, but coldly declines, saying she will never betray Mortis.

Sacher-Masoch

  • Butt Monkey: He gets hit constantly by both Moumoune and Kyo. Ironically, he enjoys it.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: Parodied with him and his servants.
  • Demonic Possession: Belial uses this on him to get back to the real world after Alia-Aenor caused him to be trapped in Hell.
  • Killed Off for Real: He ends up killed when Belial use his body as a portail to bring his sword and destroy his prison.
  • The Mole: Is revealed to be this to the Clerics for Mortis.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Deconstructed; when Maender-Alkor's inhabitants realizes torture is useless on him because he enjoys it, they get him confessing by promising to hit him more if he does so. He also reveals Mortis convinced him to betray them by the same trick.
  • You Have Failed Me: A comical subversion; he wants to be punished by Mortis for his failure, but his master seems to not care much.

The Ogre in charge of keeping the bridge on the River of Lukewarm Phlegm.
