Characters: The Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nóg
The Mystic Knights:
Rohan, Mystic Knight of Fire
An orphan raised as Cathbad's apprentice before learning he was the long-awaited Chosen One
Draganta, making him the leader by default. He is the only one who can control Pyre, the Dragon of Dare, whom he summons with the Dragon's Breath Dagger. Rohan revealed in one episode his heart's desire is to know who and where his real family is. Be Careful What You Wish For
Angus, Mystic Knight of Earth
Rohan's best friend and roommate. The two grew up on the streets together, and Angus was — and still is — the troublemaker. Rohan trusts him unquestionably (the power of their friendship
was once enough to free Rohan from a spell), despite his reputation as a trickster
and pickpocket. His skills in that area frequently come in handy.
- Element: Earth
- Mystic Weapon: Terra Mace, a mace that shoots large boulders and creates earthquakes
Deirdre, Mystic Knight of Air
The Rebellious Princess
of Kells, who finds herself a habitual blackmail tool. In the finale, it took all of one minute for Maeve to grab her and the knights to sulkily abandon their weapons as if it had become routine, which it had. Fortunately, no one in her world seemed to notice
, anymore than they were bothered by her tendency to pull rank whenever she wanted to get her way. ("That's a royal command.")
- Element: Air
- Mystic Weapon: Whirlwind Crossbow, a crossbow that shoots strong blasts of air
Ivar, Mystic Knight of Water
A prince who was passing through Kells on the hunt for a thief who stole a priceless chalice from his kingdom. He eventually learned that very chalice was located in Maeve's throne room, since it was Midar's portal between Earth and the Dark Fairy Realm. His dedication to retrieving the chalice almost matched his uncanny ability to track anything and everything.
- Element: Water
- Mystic Weapon: Barbed Trident, a trident that shoots streams of blue electricity.
Garrett, Mystic Knight of the Forest
A Sixth Ranger
who came to Kells to carry out his betrothal to Deirdre, who instantly shot him down due to his initial severe superiority complex. After a period of fighting the team after being Brainwashed
by Maeve, Cathbad realized he was destined to be the fifth Mystic Knight. Deirdre firmly refused to go through with the marriage, but she tolerated him as a teammate, even giving him a kiss good-bye when he left almost as quickly as he came to escort a stranded princess home.
- Element: Forest
- Mystic Weapon: Twin Timber Axes, which are supposedly "sharp enough to slice a stone in half," but were usually used to shoot energy blasts.
The ruler of Kells and father of Deirdre.
The druid of Kells.
- Cool Old Guy
- Narrator: Later on in the series, Cathbad began to narrate exposition they didn't have to film, or the beginning of episodes to catch people up to the story.
the fairy king of Tir Na Nog who gave the Mystic Knights their weapons and armor. They frequently came to him for help but more often than not heard Figure It Out Yourself
, in riddle form.
A Ninja Butterfly
(no, seriously) who followed the Knights around, serving as a messenger and spy. She had a crush on Rohan that occasionally caused her to do foolish things, like having Maeve turn her human or accidentally turning Deirdre to stone.
Pyre, Dragon of dare
A red dragon who aids the knights in battle when they summon him with their daggers.
Maeve is the queen of Temra. She believes that being the ruler of Kells is her birthright, so she recruits the help of the dark fairy Mider.
Queen Maeve's right-hand man. Before the series started, he was acting as The Mole for Maeve in king Conchobar's court before a young Rohan and Angus uncovered his treachery. He was revealed to be the one who stole Ivar's chalice
A dark fairy who wishes to take over the fairy kingdom of Tir Na Nog. To reach that goal, he allies with Queen Maeve and grants her the magical power to create monsters.
