Characters: Shadowchasers-Hebi Nas Soulscape
The characters who appear here are inhabitants of a world that exists inside Hebi-Na's mind called her Soulscape, where her soul actually lives. Normally, the soul is supposed to be the ruler of the Soulscape, but in the plot Shadowchasers: Soulscape
, she has been stricken with a cruel curse that has caused things there to go horribly wrong. Jalal's mission in the story is to enter and set things right. (Note that the soul herself is not included here; for all intents and purposes, she is the same as Hebi-Na herself.)
Tropes shared by all of them
- Symbolic Character: Each of them represent a certain aspect of Hebi-Na's soul.
- Your Mind Makes It Real: In the Soulscape, its residents are allowed to search through Hebi-Na's memories in order to access cards that are normally unique in the Yu-gi-oh universe (such as Destiny HERO Defendguy or Earthbound God Ccarayhua). The only real requirement is that Hebi-Na has seen the card and knows how its effect works.
- Boisterous Bruiser: Seems to enjoy herself quite a bit when she's fighting bulezai.
- Fiery Redhead: While in Ember's appearance, possibly even more than Ember herself.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She purposely lets herself be captured by Norg's guards so that Jalal can get past them and make it into the cathedral where Hebi-Na's soul is being held hostage. (She figures that she'll escape from Norg's dungeon just like she always does; unfortunately, Norg has another punishment in mind this time...)
- Symbolic Character: She represents Hebi-Na's conscience, and her power has steadily grown recently. In recent times, her appearance has changed to look like Ember, the person who Hebi-Na most wants to make amends with.
- Good Guy Bar: His tavern, the Fang and Flagon, is the only true safe place in Hebi-Na's Soulscape when Jalal arrives. The demons are unable to enter it due to some sort of magical ward. (They can still burn the place down if they want to reach someone inside badly enough, but the building always rebuilds itself.
- Mysterious Backer: He wears a mask, and not even he knows what he looks like under it, due to the fact that Hebi-Na's memories of her father are so vague. (Hebi-Na was born on the Homeworld of Shadow, and like most Shadowkind who are grabbed from there and sent to Earth, her memories of her previous life are distant at best.)
- Symbolic Character: He represents Hebi-Na's vague and fleeting memories of her father.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: The punishment he sentences Alzoozel to clearly qualifies. He orders her to be flogged either one-hundred times, or until she begs him to stop, whichever comes first. He also intends the whole population of the Soulscape to watch. Clearly the intent is cement his hold on the place. Fortunately, Vucarik is defeated, causing all the demons to turn to dust, before the sentence can be carried out.
- Fat Bastard: Is a hezrou, who are known for their greed and selfishness.
- Genius Bruiser: Along with Stout Strength.
- Greed: Being a hezrou and all. His deck also plays with the concept of greed, as it focuses on the card "Greed" by punishing his opponent the more they draw cards outside the Draw Phase.
- Jabba Table Manners: In fact, he seems to have no manners at all.
- Symbolic Character: He represents what Hebi-Na once was, the cruelty that she once showed towards others and is the cast-off evil that Hebi-Na has been trying to purge from herself.
- Villainous Glutton: And how. He at first ignores Jalal completely in favor of his meal, only deciding to confront him when Jalal knocks the table over
- Symbolic Character: He represents Hebi-Na's "inner-child", the blissful, innocent state that many people long to return to.
- Stone Wall: His deck focuses on limiting the actions of his opponents and using their actions against them. Otherwise, he hardly does any attacking himself.
- Symbolic Character: Represents Hebi-Na's desire to commit suicide.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous
- Olympus Mons: Has three copies of Earthbound God Ccarayhua in her deck.
- Symbolic Character: Represents all of Hebi-Na's fears. She thus resembles Taramanda, someone who Hebi-Na was terrified of. To take this further, her deck uses Earthbound God Ccarayhua, a creature that Hebi-Na feared among all others. (According to Maramanda, ophidia are split on their opinions of this being. Some regard it as an eccentric celebrity that one can't help but watch, while others think of it as a harbringer of the apocalypse. Clearly, Hebi-Na was of the second group.)
Vucarik of the Chains
- Big Bad: Of Soulscape.
- Demon Lord: Or rather, a deposed Demon Lord.
- Ironic Echo: Uses Hebi-Na's old deck (with some slight modifications) during his duel with her and Jalal.
- Killed Off for Real: Once Jalal and Hebi-Na destroy the Bells of Baphomet.
- Professional Killer: Basically, that's what he is, a glorified hired gun. (Probably a Psycho for Hire too.) If a demon lord hires him to inflict the Bells of Baphomet on someone, he does it, and gains part of their power in exchange. His ultimate goal is to gain enough to wrest back rulership of his home layer of the Abyss from an usurper.
- Signature Card: Evil Dragon Ananta due to his deck being Hebi-Na's old one.
- Variable-Length Chain
