Main Characters (playable in game, present in all adaptations)
The main character of Sands of Destruction. Kyrie believes he is a normal human being and lives life in an isolated area where both humans and Ferals are treated equally. However, there is more than meets the eye as he has the power to destroy the world. Because of this he is forced to leave his hometown and journey with Morte, who wants to use him to destroy the world.
A sixteen year old girl with a troubled past and wants to destroy the world because of it. She was originally the only member of the World Destruction Committee (anime wise) until she encountered Kyrie and found out he had the power to destroy the world. With him by her side, she sets her sight of destroying the discrimination in the world.
- Action Girl: In the anime. More of a Dark Action Girl in the manga and video games.
- Action Girlfriend: To Kyrie in a sense. Officially becomes one about halfway through the game, though remains unofficial in other adaptations.
- Adaptational Curves: While Morte is never flat-chested and is acknowledged by other characters as beautiful, the manga seems to double her bra size in comparison to the game and anime. The anime may have slightly filled out her figure as well, but it's much less drastic of a change.
- Axe Crazy: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime.
- Bacon Addiction: Her favorite food is a sandwhale bacon sandwich.
- Badass: She has held her own against the World Salvation committee for years before she met Kyrie.
- Badass in Distress: In the anime where she wouldnít tell the Ferals where Kyrie and the Destruct Code were despite being beaten (almost to death). In the game, she briefly ends up brainwashed by Serpens Rex, then is cursed by her and nearly dies.
- Badass Longcoat: Sans sleeves.
- Beleaguered Childhood Friend: Agan treats her as one when they first meet in the game, wondering how the girl he grew up with who used to be a member of the Golden Lions with him could have gone so far as to join the World Annihilation Front.
- Berserk Button: In the video game, hurting Agan is ill advised as Rajiv learns the hard way. Morte kills him for beating up Agan and threatening a Fate Worse Than Death, which could have literally meant anything by the way Agan was tied up.
- BFS: Her weapon of choice is a double-ended scimitar that's nearly as tall as she is.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: In the video game, by Serpens Rex. She gets better.
- Break the Cutie: In the anime. More of a Break the Haughty in the manga.
- Broken Bird: In the anime. Subverted in the video game.
- Childhood Friend: To Agan in the game and manga. While they're very close (hurting Agan is a good way to insure a painful death for yourself), it's obvious they're Like Brother and Sister.
- Crutch Character: In the video game, she starts out at higher level than Kyrie and is your primary damage dealer after Taupy. Halfway through the game, you probably will rely on Flurry attacks more, and since hers can only do 7 hits in total, she arguably becomes the least useful character in combat.
- Cute and Psycho: In the video game and manga.
- Dangerously Short Skirt
- Defrosting Ice Queen: In the anime where she opens up to Kyrie and Toppi. In the video game, it takes her longer to open up to the group. Subverted in the manga.
- Detached Sleeves/Opera Gloves: Tight like gloves, but has no fingers like a long sleeve.
- Determinator: Once she gets an idea in her head - whether that's world destruction, resurrecting Kyrie, or remaking the entire world into a better place - there's absolutely no stopping her.
- Drives Like Crazy: In the game. She complains that they don't make sand skiffs like they used to; you redline them once or twice and the darn thing just overheats and dies on you. Poor Kyrie could barely keep up.
- Fantastic Racism: In the anime, she hates beastmen (with perhaps the exception of Taupy) and doesn't like when it's shown that they can and do get along perfectly well with humans. In the game, she doesn't seem to think anything more or less of them.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Her gloves are slightly different on each hand.
- Fingerless Gloves
- Fist Pump: Her Victory Pose in the game.
- Flat Character: In the video game where her actions arenít explained. Lampshaded when she complains nothing happens to her in the Depths of Memory.
- Ironically, this is subverted to hell and back in the anime because she's the first one to be affected by the Depths of Memories and is the only character that wanted to remain there because she would rather live in a time of happiness instead of knowing the future.
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Most large coats hide the wearer's figure rather than being neatly tucked in beneath the breasts. Becomes even more noticeable in the manga, where her shirt even dips in between her breasts to avoid the uniboob effect.
- Genki Girl: In the game, she's extremely excitable and doesn't do anything by half.
- Genre Savvy:: In the video game where she proves to be right on most occasions.
- Girl with Psycho Weapon: She often brandishes that big sword in a menacing manner (as if there were any way to hold a sword as large as a person and not be menacing about it).
- Girly Bruiser: She'll happily bomb you six ways to Sunday before squeeing over a sparkly dress. The game even has a Chain of Deals in which a set of feral sisters recognize that the human girl actually has some fashion sense.
- Green Eyes: Certainly has the temperament expected of it.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: In all versions. Played for laughs in the anime; in the video game, it's played for laughs most of the time. However, in the manga, it gets played for drama as by snapping at Kyrie of all people, this prompts him to leave the group with Toppi and Naja following him.
- Icy Blue Eyes: In the game, which is somewhat unusual as her personality is most fiery in that incarnation. However, her one Blood Skill that isn't a bomb is Blizzard.
- In Love with Your Carnage: In the game, she fangirls a bit when first meeting Kyrie because she heard he turned an entire village to sand. When she learns he can't do it on command and doesn't actually want to ever do it again, she's disappointed and vows to show him how terrible the world is so he'll want to destroy it. Her reaction in the manga is similar.
- Insistent Terminology: Morte is sixteen, not seventeen! Wanted posters listing her as a year older is sort of a sore point for her.
- I Take Offense to That Last One: When discussing the various things the Ferals call her, she claims she dislikes the name "Lady Death" because it's too unoriginal.
- Jerkass: In the manga.
- Kick Chick: The game makes good use of her kicking animation; the anime, surprisingly, doesn't show her affinity for foot attacks.
- Kick the Morality Pet: In the manga she snaps at Kyrie after he snaps at her and then announcing that he's going to turn himself into the World Salvation Committee. She attacks him in a fit of rage but Toppi and Naja stop her thus Kyrie proves his point.
- The Kid with the Remote Control: In the game, the Crimson Sun eventually decides to teach her the words that control Kyrie's Destruct powers. It's just as well, considering she's the only one he'd listen to at that point anyway. Luckily, most of her crazy has been turned to more constructive uses by then; she now intends to use his powers to recreate the world.
- Lady of War: You'd expect someone who plans to end the world to look haggard. You would be wrong.
- Mad Bomber: In the game, where she's more upbeat about ending the world. Several of her special attacks involve explosives, including a Molotov Cocktail. The ferals also have a rumor that if the Scarlet Plague doesn't blow something up often enough, she starts getting the shakes. Morte claims that's not true, but Stuff Blowing Up is very cathartic and helps clear her mind.
- Magic Skirt: If she ever crouches facing the viewer, things become inexplicably dark under her skirt. Itís not immune to tears though.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Kyrie would have been perfectly content to simply let life happen to him were it not for her suddenly showing up.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With Kyrie.
- Meaningful Name:
- Morte means death, and she desires to kill the world.
- Ashera is the name of an ancient mother goddess, wife of the creator of the world. When Kyrie remakes the world at the end of the game, effectively becoming the new creator, Morte remains by his side. She's also the first to suggest remaking the world.
- Murder Is the Best Solution: Her general sentiment in all things is to just kill it and be done with it, up to and including the entire world. At least at first. She later decides changing the world is better than ending it - but if anyone tries to stop her, it's still fastest to kill them.
- Muscles Are Meaningless: Her whip-thin arms are perfectly capable of swinging that giant blade around, and her Blow attacks are some of the hardest-hitting in the game.
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: She actually has several in the game: "Scarlet Plague", "Beastslayer", and "Lady Death".
- Oblivious to Love: In the game, Agan notes that she wasn't aware what Kyrie meant to her until he asked Naja to kill him so he couldn't destroy the world. She also never seems to notice his giddy swooning when they first meet.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Oh so much.
- One Woman Army: She can take out groups of enemies by herself with ease. However, the only thing that prevents her from going on a killing rampage is when Kyrie gets himself captured.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: In the game, the only one who thinks anything of her killing Rajiv is Kyrie, and he's quickly swayed into believing that he deserved what she did.
- Pet the Dog: She does this a lot in the anime. Inverted in the manga.
- Pink Means Feminine: Despite her prowess in and enjoyment of battle, Morte is quite insulted when Agan insinuates she isn't feminine, as if her bright pink outfit wasn't clue enough.
- Put Them All Out of My Misery: In the video game, she really just wants to destroy the world. The fact that it's full of Fantastic Racism is just a convenient excuse.
- Rapunzel Hair: It's down past her waist but doesn't seem to slow her down in the slightest.
- Relative Button: Agan may as well be her older brother. If you like your innards where they are, you don't hurt him.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: In the game and manga, she has a romantic version with Kyrie and a non-romantic version with Agan. Apparently it takes a tag-team to keep up with her.
- She's Got Legs: A DVD Omake nicknames her "The Leggy Terrorist". Odd, considering the anime downplays her Kick Chick tendencies.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: Her long coat is sleeveless despite the fact that she's not muscular at all; just don't mistake her slim figure for weakness.
- Sugar And Ice Girl: In the anime toward Kyrie with a mix of Tsundere.
- Supporting Leader: Kyrie is the main character, but Morte is the leader (and perhaps only "true" member) of the World Destruction Committee and the plot kicks off and follows her more than him.
- Thigh-High Boots: With a zipper up the front.
- Token Evil Teammate: She's the only one of the main characters who really wants to destroy the world, despite their entire team being named for doing just that.
- Tranquil Fury: When Rajiv beats Agan, she switches from her usual gleeful destruction to a very cold, calculated demeanor and kills him slowly offscreen. Even Kyrie is a little disturbed and notes "Morte has a dark side."
- Troubled, but Cute: In the anime. Not quite so much in the game or manga, as she's more welcoming of company and less prone to brooding.
- Tsundere: Type A in the anime.
- The Unchosen One: In the game, Kyrie was born to destroy the world; nobody said anything about some random girl who wanted in on the action. As it turns out, falling in love with her is what keeps Kyrie from losing control when the Destruct Code is used. That definitely wasn't in the Creator's plans for the world.
- Villain Protagonist: In the manga and video game. Subverted in the anime in which she tries to be one but ends up helping other people on their journey.
- Waif-Fu: She's only 5'4" (162cm) but is more than capable of taking care of herself in a fight and wielding that BFS
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Kyrie believes her to be one in the game, claiming that he can tell she loves the world in spite of herself and the only reason she wants to end it is because she can't stand to see it in the state it's in.
- What the Hell, Hero?: In the manga, in order to make sure that there would be no more human slaves in a village, she blows it up. Kyrie calls her out on this.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Mostly in the anime, but even the manga Morte has sympathetic moments.
- Worthless Yellow Rocks: In the game, she's annoyed at the number of treasure chests in the Azure Tower, because despite the number of rare and valuable items inside, the only one she wants is the one Felis Rex promised to trade for a new BFS; the others are worthless to her.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: In the anime, because despite her insistence that beastmen and humans cannot live together, Kyrie keeps seeing multiple moments where beast men are trying to change the world for the better and humans falling in love with beastmen.
- Yandere: In the manga, at her worst.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A, using Thigh-High Boots instead of socks.
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Shoes, gloves, a collar, and a bandana on his head, but no shirt or pants in sight.
- Ambiguous Situation: In the game, it's unclear whether Muffy is actually his wife or just his live-in girlfriend. He refers to her as "my girl" but never clarifies whether that's short for girlfriend or just an Affectionate Nickname.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: In the anime and manga, he fights using only his fists. In the game, his weapons are gloves, which is pretty close.
- Bears Are Bad News: For the enemies anyway.
- Berserk Button: Don't call him a teddy bear. The only person that has been able to live up to this day who called him one is Kyrie. However, in the anime, everyone calls him one and it pisses him off, but he never does anything about it.
- The Big Guy: Despite being the smallest.
- Bodyguard Crush: While not a crush, he acts as Kyrieís royal bodyguard. His relationship with Kyrie can be questioned in the manga.
- Declaration of Protection: Toward Kyrie. It is a "It's Just that Simple" case in the anime and video game. However, both of these later become the "complicated" type because of Kyrie's status of being able to destroy the world.
- Eyepatch of Power: It doesn't do anything but it makes him look more badass.
- Funny Animal: Clearly further down the Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism than most other beastmen, but they don't seem to have any Fantastic Racism against him for it; they just mock him for being small and cute.
- Honor Before Reason: He wants to be seen as a hero and insists on doing heroic things, even if he's stuck traveling with a girl who wants to end the world.
- Knife Nut: In the anime, but only the first episode.
- Lightning Bruiser
- The Mentor: For Kyrie in the anime and manga.
- My Instincts Are Showing: In the anime, Taupy always insists that he isn't a bear and no one should call him one. However, when they visit the Winter Continent, he has a near-uncontrollable urge to hibernate.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Probably one of the strongest fighters in the game, thanks to being able to chain Flurry attacks. Capable of taking on much larger opponents in the anime and manga as well, while still being barely knee-high.
- Rebel Relaxation: He often leans against a wall during cutscenes in the game.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: And he hates it.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With his wife. He barely reaches three-feet in height, while his wife is around two stories tall.
- Undying Loyalty: To Kyrie in all adaptations.
- Vague Age: The game lists everyone's age except his.
- Verbal Tic: Kuma in the Japanese version or Bear-o in some translations of the English version. He doesn't have it in his "inner voice" when he narrates in the anime; Kyrie questions why.
In the game and manga, Agan is a close friend to Morte, having been in the Golden Lions with her. In the anime, Agan is just a smuggler unaffiliated with the Golden Lions, simply running into Morte, Kyrie, and Toppy through chance. Either way, he often assists the heroes, either for free or a price.
A dragon Feral who has lived for over 300 years. Being the last of her kind, Rhi'a desires to see the end of the world per to dragon tradition in the game; in the anime, she most certainly does not
want the world to end and hates Morte for wanting to destroy everything. Despite being calm in the game, in the anime she's prone to becoming trigger happy.
- Action Girl
- Ax-Crazy: In the anime.
- Badass: Her game counterpart but her anime counterpart has some good moments.
- The Chick
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: In the video game.
- Dumb Blonde: Averted in the anime; she's not the brightest, often choosing to shoot rather than speak, but she has moments of clarity better than Naja.
- Draconic Humanoid: Of a Cute Monster Girl variety. Normally, she only has the horns and a series of small ridges down her back, though she's capable of growing a scaly tail and wings.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her general clothing style, though her personality is anything but doll-like in the anime.
- Guns Akimbo: Her primary fighting style when she's not in dragon form.
- The Gunslinger
- Hair Decorations: A tiny crossed pair of clips holding her bangs.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: In the anime.
- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons
- Last of Her Kind: In the game. In the anime, she mentions family in Dragon Valley, though when we get there, it's got nothing but large skeletons (she doesn't react, though, so apparently the place always looks like that).
- Make Me Wanna Shout: All of her magical attacks in the game have musical-themed names. Using them makes her scream and blast the enemy.
- More Dakka + Beam Spam: Her in-game Requiem Finishing Move.
- The Nicknamer: She calls Felix Rex "Mr. Meow", Kyrie "Destruct", Elephas Rex "Woolly", and Naja "Barky" in the game.
- The Ojou: Treated as one in the video game by Felis Rex.
- Oracular Urchin: Somewhat in the game. While she's really 300, her body is that of a young teen and her ramblings don't always quite make sense.
- Our Dragons Are Different: Horned Humanoid with the ability to sprout wings and a tail, with the ability to see the future.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Thanks to being a human-shaped dragon. She's the smallest of the humanoid main characters, taller only than the teddy-sized Taupi, yet is capable of a large damage output with both her guns and transformed dragon form.
- Punctuation Shaker: It's unknown if it's a dragon thing or just a Rhi'a thing. Some translations render her name as just Lia, averting the trope.
- Purple Eyes: To mark her as a dragon.
- Really 700 Years Old: She's at least 300 years old.
- Sexy Backless Outfit: Normally, it shows off the little row of ridges down her spine, though it also allows her to sprout her wings and tail without Clothing Damage (her tail seems to grow from somewhere up around her kidneys rather than her pelvis).
- Stocking Filler: With visible garters to hold them up, though they don't seem to be attached to a belt. Instead, they double as gun holsters.
- Too Many Belts: Her double-belt serves no real purpose.
- Tsundere: In the anime, she's Type A to everyone and Type B to Kyrie. Averted in the game.
- Unknown Rival: To Morte in the anime. She has a bitter, seething hatred for her, but Morte just sees her as yet another World Salvation Committee mook.
- You Monster!: In the video game, she says this (and becomes her final Quip) to Lacertus Rex upon finding out he wants to make a new world with humans as the base material.
- Zettai Ryouiki
A half-human, half-beastman born to the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman, which earns him a large amount of scorn and racism; how racist changes in all three formats. Very analytical and competent, Naja is the main pursuer to the World Destruction Committee.
- Batman Gambit: In the anime, he does this to find the main characters.
- Detached Sleeves/Opera Gloves: Tight like gloves, but has no fingers like a long sleeve.
- Fantastic Racism: See Half-Breed Discrimination.
- Fingerless Gloves
- Friendly Enemy: In the anime, where he intends to win the Destruct Code from Morte via gambling and is always trying to find a compromise compared to Rhia who just wants to shoot Morte dead.
- Furry Reminder: In the manga, he wags his tail when happy.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Stated in the game that he's the son of the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman.
- Half-Breed Discrimination: No one lets him forget he's a half-breed because of this. Many of his peers at work insult him due to the standing of humans as slaves, mocking that his blood or Naja himself smells of human and even treating him terribly despite his possibly high rank. Rajiv, who Naja works under, insults Naja almost immediately after the game starts and calls him out for his half-breed species in the manga. In the anime, it doesn't even seem like the boss of the entire World Salvation Committee likes Naja.
- Heel-Face Turn: In the video game.
- Heroic Albino
- Honor Before Reason
- Improbable Weapon User: Uses a set of wind and fire wheels.
- In-Series Nickname: In the game, Morte calls him "Professor" and Rhi'a later dubs him "Barky", which he dislikes.
- Intro-Only Point of View: He's the first character you control in the game, but doesn't even appear on screen for quite some time after switching to Kyrie; after that, he's an antagonist. Until he joins your party to help resurrect Kyrie.
- Little Bit Beastly: Like most of the Ferals, including full-blooded ones, he appears largely human with just a fluffy tail to set him apart from normal humans.
- Man in White
- Momma's Boy: Hinted at in the game.
- Missing Mom: He believes her to be dead since his late childhood/early teen years. She's actually in hiding in Mechto, but he never quite realizes it even after speaking to her.
- Noble Demon: He's a nice guy, but it's expected seeing how his workplace treats him.
- Not So Above It All: He's exasperated by Morte's bombastic behavior, but his Victory Pose is nearly as flashy as hers.
- Scarf of Asskicking: In traditional red.
- The Sixth Ranger: In the game.
- Specs of Awesome: Is perfectly capable of keeping up with the rest of the cast without removing his glasses.
- Stoic Spectacles
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?
- Who Would Be Stupid Enough: In the anime, he tends to fall for the stupidest things. One episode comes to mind where he talks to this robot over again telling it that he and Rhia are part of the World Salvation Committee (which the robot messes up because Alligator Lord did not want them interfering with his plans.) Naturally, Rhia is seen as the smarter one of the two in this situation where using violence actually got her somewhere.
Ruler of Zetska Manor and nearby Barni Village, where Kyrie lived.
The current ruler of the wolf tribe; he deposed Naja's father for marrying a human woman.
- Human Resources: He works children to the point of exhaustion in his gardens, then uses their bodies as fertilizer.
- Adapted Out: Makes no appearance in the anime.
- Ambition Is Evil: Subverted. Despite Pictis Rex's motive to hold the peace talks, he was actually very reasonable, and he would have helped end the conflicts between Beastmen and humans peacefully.
- Shark Man: He requires a water circulator over his gills to breathe, but has no trouble speaking.
- Threatening Shark: Averted; he's apparently a decent guy (for all five minutes we see of him).
- The Atoner: In the anime. He used to be a great general and killed many humans, but has since dedicated himself to helping everyone regardless of race.
- Badass Beard
- Combat Medic: Just because he's a doctor doesn't mean he doesn't know how to defend himself.
- Dressed to Heal: He wears a Labcoat of Science and Medicine despite the heat being a very real danger on the Summer Continent.
- Frontier Doctor: Especially so in the anime, though he still shows some shades of this in the game.
- Good Is Not Soft: In the game. Despite being an extremely kind doctor, he refuses to allow Morte to access the Temple of Light to resurrect Kyrie, because he is dangerous and could very easily destroy the world; he sacrificed himself to keep the world safe, and Elephas Rex thinks that sacrifice should be honored and the dead should stay dead. When she refuses to turn around and forces the fight, he's a rather tough boss battle.
- Honorable Elephant: He'll treat anyone, including members of the World Annihilation Front/World Destruction Committee.
- Super Doc: In the game, Rhi'a insists that he is the best doctor in the whole world, bar none. He even knows how to dispel curses.
- Feathered Fiend
- Giant Flyer: He's tall for a man, but that's really big for a bird.
- Pride: His downfall is that he underestimates the World Annihilation Front. Naja pleaded with him to send for reinforcements, but Aquila Rex sneered at the idea of even wasting an entire platoon against five measly people.
- Actually a Doombot: The first time you fight him, it's just an automaton.
- Affably Evil: In the game.
- Ambition Is Evil: It leads to delusions of godhood.
- A God Am I: Eventually believes himself to be able to use Kyrie's power as the Destruct to recreate the world to his liking - with himself as its supreme ruler, of course.
- Never Smile at a Crocodile: In the anime, he's clearly evil. In the game, he's actually rather helpful the first time you meet him, but that's only because he wants Kyrie's powers for himself.
- Non-Mammalian Hair: Has a rather large braid in back of his head. It's possible it's a wig, as he has a general old-and-stuffy look and a colonial powdered wig wouldn't be entirely out of character, but it's never touched upon.
- Ridiculously Human Robots: He's capable of producing them. In the anime, they don't particularly look like beastmen or humans, but have personality far beyond what would be needed for simple worker drones. In the game, he's capable of making perfect copies of living or previously-living people.
The origin of water in the game world. Killing him dries up parts of Viteau, making new areas available for later exploration.
The origin of soil in the game world.
The origin of fire in the game world.
The origin of wind and breezes in the game world.
Final Boss (SPOILERS)
The Creator of the entire world who has grown tired of it and now wishes to destroy it using Kyrie.
Kyrie's uncle who has raised him since he was young in the game.
- Adapted Out: He's not mentioned in the anime.
- Cool Uncle: Kyrie seems to respect him quite a lot.
- Parental Substitute: Kyrie lost his parents when he was young, so Agni stepped in.
- Sacrificial Lamb: Like the other residents of Barni, he was one of Kyrie's victims the first time his powers got out of control. Except he wasn't. As the Crimson Sun, he's the one who activated Kyrie's powers and was perfectly fine.
- Supreme Chef: It's clear where Kyrie got his culinary skills from.
The son of the current Lupus Rex.
The commander of the Golden Lions and Agan's old friend.
- Sacrificial Lion: He's one of Kyrie's victims the second time he loses control of his powers.
- Ambiguous Situation: Whether she's Taupy's wife or just his live-in girlfriend.
- Demoted to Extra: While she was already an extra in the game, the anime relegates her to just being a memory that Taupy once unsuccessfully hit on at a bar.
- Satellite Love Interest: What does she do aside from sit at home waiting for Taupy?
- Supreme Chef: According to Taupy, her home cooking is some of the best around.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: The Huge Girl to Taupy's Tiny Guy.
An anime-only young man whose importance to the plot is not revealed until very late in the story.
Aya and Shin
A human woman who was falsely imprisoned and a beastman prison guard who have fallen in love.
An old friend of Taupy's who was once a fellow member of the Hero Guild.
