Greysky City

Haley: It's a dangerous place where people get killed for having gold in their pockets. Not everywhere on this plane is Happy Sunshine Land, you know.

Haley and Ian Starshine's city of origin; an exaggerated hive of scum and villainy if there ever was one. Visited during the "Don't Split the Party" arc, much to Haley's displeasure.

    In General 
  • City Noir: The town is painted in drab colors, the citizens all have shady careers of varying legality, and one of the most powerful people in the city is the head of the Rogues Guild.
  • Descriptive Ville: Very grey.
  • More Criminals Than Targets: When Celia walks in, everyone is either committing a crime or being a victim of it.
  • Thieves' Guild: Rogue in this case. It operates like a mafia with protection rackets and "no one leaves" rule.

    Haley Starshine 

    Ian Starshine 

Ian Starshine

"'Not dying' is one of my best skills!"

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Rogue
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Haley's father and former high-ranking member of Greysky City's Thieves' Guild before being supplanted by Bozzok. As a result, he has spent three years imprisoned.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Not quite as bad as Miko Miyazaki, but bad enough to think his daughter single-handedly manipulated the whole party into rescuing him while being on an unrelated mission, and Roy into believing he's The Leader. He also accuses Elan of being a mole working for his father General Tarquin.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He's seen in a few flashbacks before appearing in the storyline proper, though even at the time there was no indication that the old, white-haired gladiator could be him. When Haley reunites with him, it's already clear that he is indeed her father with Tarquin's revelation that the Empire of Blood was called Tyrinaria before and the fact that Ian was red-haired.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Inverted. His wife told him to "be better than this city" as she lay dying, so he's trying to "be better" than a profit-minded thief that steals from everyone. His first idea was to overthrow an Evil Overlord.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: While he's fully capable of telling the difference between Nale and Elan, he still refuses to believe that Haley and Elan's relationship is anything more than one of Tarquin's ploys.
  • Disease Bleach: "They used to call me 'Red', but three years of malnutrition will do a number on your hair color."
  • Distressed Dude: Freeing him was the big motivator for Haley to start adventuring.
  • Frame-Up: After the nation of Reptilia partially catches on to Tarquin's scheme, Tarquin has their ambassador assassinated and pins the crime on Ian. This is done both to punish Ian for his disrespect towards Tarquin and to test Haley's worthiness of marrying his son by seeing how she handles the situation. However, this works to his advantage — those who also want to bring down Tarquin figure that someone worth framing is an ally to have, so now Ian's would-be revolt has some decent allies.
  • Genre Savvy: After Tarquin releases him from the gladiatorial arena, he figures it would be best to go into hiding. As it turns out, he was right.
  • Greed: He's Haley's father. Where do you think she got it from?
    Ian: Would it be crass to bill him extra for a single-use improvised weapon?
    Geoff: Yes.
    Ian: "Lovable miser" crass, or just—
    Geoff: Just regular crass.
  • Groin Attack: Apparently suffered one that rendered him sterile ten years ago. Which makes Belkar's attempt at a Freudian Threat fall flat.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: He trusts no-one but his own family and considers everyone else a potential enemy, raising Haley with this in mind. Although he's beginning to accept that somebody outside his family might yet have some good in them, given that the person in question is Belkar, this trope is still very much in effect.
  • It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time: He let himself get caught in an attempt to stir up a rebellion against General Tarquin because he reasoned that jails would be bursting with Tarquin's enemies. However, those capable of following him were few in number and all died in the gladiator arena, and he's been stuck in jail ever since.
  • It Tastes Like Feet: Ian and Geoff cultivate some nutritious parasites over their bodies in case of hunger. "Mmmm! These ones taste like neck!"
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Rob from the rich, give 40% to the poor. After reasonable expenses.
  • Luke Nounverber: Another Starshine.
  • Made a Slave: Gladiator, because he was caught thieving.
  • The Old Convict: Fills this role at the gladiator camp; his reference to being nicknamed "Red" is a shout-out to a well-known example of this trope in The Shawshank Redemption.
  • The Pig Pen: Not by his choice, but three years in the Bloodstone Correctional Facility is hard on your hygiene. Belkar and Roy make a few comments about his stench.
  • Properly Paranoid: Living in Greysky City, it's no wonder he taught Haley to never trust anyone but family. His patronizing attitude towards Elan for being General Tarquin's son is also understandable given how much more favored he is compared to Nale.
  • Silly Rabbit, Cynicism Is for Losers!: He believes the other trope but he himself is proof of this. Choosing to remain in prison because you think your little girl is being hoodwinked by a calculating, nefarious, deeply undercover mole linked to an Evil Overlord (Elan?! The Chaotic Good Cloudcuckoolander!? You're serious, right?) can be nothing but this. Even after having met the guy he only became more convinced.
  • So Proud of You: See Believing His Own Lies. Later, however, he encourages her to make her dead mother, and then him, proud, with obvious confidence that she will do it, on her actual quest.
  • Unknown Rival: He sees Tarquin as a vile and dangerous villain that his late wife would be proud to see him depose. Tarquin sees him as one more expendable gladiator and, in fact, doesn't even know who he is.
  • Wanted Poster: Thanks to Tarquin, he gets one when framed for the murder of Ambassador Gourntonk.

    Bozzok 

Bozzok

"You have to understand, our entire business model relies on exclusivity. If we allow non-Guild thieves to come and go from the city as they please, we lose our leverage over those who buy into our protection rackets."

Race: Half-orc
Gender: Male
Class: Rogue
Alignment: Neutral Evil

The head of Greysky City's Thieves' Guild. He tries to kill Haley for defecting from the organization.
  • Brutal Honesty: Regardless of whether or not it was a smart idea for him to do so, everything he says to Crystal right before she kills him is 100% true.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Thinking it was a great idea to tell the murderous, enraged Crystal-golem that she's a complete moron and a "rabid dog" who always needed someone to hold her leash. What happens next is entirely predictable.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: The only reason that Crystal is still alive is that she has him to do the thinking for her. After her death and reanimation as a flesh golem, Bozzok is openly pleased at how much easier it has made keeping her on-task.
  • The Don: Since the Thieves' Guild runs like a mafia he fits this trope; making deals, running protection rackets, etc.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Bozzok is superficially a reasonable, honorable head of the Thieves Guild, but shows himself to be utterly amoral. He twice betrays truces with Haley to try to have her killed, engineered Ian's imprisonment because Ian's non-violent methods were too popular in the Guild, and animated Crystal as a tortured flesh golem instead of having his dead employees raised.
  • Fatal Flaw: His Pride. See Smug Snake and Too Dumb to Live below.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's a half-orc with a broadsword and more intelligence than any five members in his guild.
  • Genre Savvy: Knows that Ian only trusts family and so turned Ian's brother-in-law by threatening the guy's son to make sure Ian would be screwed by the only person he'd really trust in prison. Ian only found out years after it started. Then, when he found out Haley was returning, he told Crystal to just break her weapon, which obviously cut deeply into the threat Haley posed to him.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Half-orc.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Oh yes, Bozzok, turning Crystal into a flesh golem was a great idea, regardless of the cost... especially an advanced form that retains all of her memories and skills. She's even deadlier than before, and no longer wont to get distracted... except it also makes her self-aware enough to realize her dreadful state and constant pain are not Haley's fault but Bozzok's, and thus allows her to turn against her former master. It is fatal for him.
  • Idiot Ball: Bozzok grabs onto it when he continues to demean and boss around the Crystal golem, who's already pissed at him. It ends poorly for him.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Crystal kills him by punching a hole right through his chest, which was followed by a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • Extreme Melee Revenge: Crystal, in a rare example of revenge for themself, shatters Bozzok's claymore and then beats him to death, punching right through his chest part way through and continues Pummeling the Corpse.
  • Just Between You and Me: Laid out his role in having Ian "removed from play" to Haley, allowing Crystal to take a flanking position.
  • Karmic Death: He used the money he could have used to revive the rogues Haley killed paying Grubwiggler to turn Crystal into a self-aware golem, and was killed by said Golem while Grubwiggler refused to help him.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Turning Crystal into a hideous golem constantly in pain is definitely horrible, but it's Crystal.
  • Mercy Lead: When Haley quit the Thieves' Guild in the prequel, Bozzok accepted it with a smile. Hank took it upon himself to warn her she had an hour to make tracks before the order to kill her went out; the grace period was out of respect for the amount of gold she'd brought in for the Guild in the past.
  • Money Is Not Power: Learns this when Grubwiggler has had it with him, and doesn't care how much he tries to pay him.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Oh Bozzok, if only you hadn't paid extra to have the Crystal golem still be sentient. Then Haley couldn't have reasoned with her.
  • Resignations Not Accepted: You can run off if you're fast and smart enough, but the official paperwork always states that every rogue is in the guild until death. It's bad public relations to have people quitting on them.
  • Revenge: Tracks Haley down in a city in the far north with the intent of killing her for humiliating him during the Greysky City arc. This results in his death, as once the Crystal Golem turns on him and Grubwiggler decides that he's fed up with the Guild, he's left with no one to help him.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: A villainous example with the Genre Savvy and maliciously cunning Bozzok and the psychotic, bloodthirsty Crystal.
  • Smug Snake: Grubwiggler tells him he was never as clever as he thought before teleporting away.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Spelled "Bozzak" in On the Origin of PCs.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Sure Bozzok, make Crystal into a sentient, free-willed Flesh Golem in a constant state of agonizing pain, without any sort of failsafe, allowing Haley to persuade her into turning against you. And when Crystal notes how you always call her a moron, you call her a moron again and then try to assert your authority over her?
  • Villainous Breakdown: Descends into this after the Crystal golem turns against him and Grubwiggler abandons him. He tries to bully Crystal back into submission and she kills him.
  • Weapon of Choice: A bastard sword and shield.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Defied. When Crystal wastes valuable killing time cutting Haley's hair with her dagger, Bozzok tells her to quit procrastinating and get on with it.

    Crystal 

Crystal

"♪ I get to kill Ha-ley! I get to kill Ha-ley! ♪"

Race: Human (later Flesh Golem)
Gender: Female
Class: Assassin
Alignment: Neutral Evil

The Rival of Haley and a Goth assassin of the Thieves' Guild. She met Haley when they were both 19 and they've hated each other ever since. She has no levels in Rogue — she steals from people after she kills them.
  • And I Must Scream: Being brought back as a sentient flesh golem leaves her in constant agony.
  • Back from the Dead: Crystal reappears as a sort of flesh golem, punching Elan across the street with a Sneak Attack and going after Haley with her bare hands.
  • Badass Normal: She kicks ass without relying on magic — despite the fact that the assassin prestige class in D&D 3.5 is a spellcaster. She certainly has too low Intelligence to cast even a cantrip, so (just like Belkar) she's an example of awful character build still being quite dangerous.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Just like Haley, Crystal's top doesn't go all the way down.
  • Came Back Strong: Once she gets turned into a flesh golem, Crystal is clearly stronger than ever, and much more dangerous.
  • Came Back Wrong: After returning as a flesh golem, she claims that she feels nothing but pain. Haley uses this to turn her against Bozzok.
  • Caps Lock: Her speech bubbles after being turned into a golem are stuck in all-caps.
  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: Crystal talks about shoving a barrel full of pickles up Haley's uterus.
  • Damage Reduction: When she returns as a golem, a type of monster renowned for high damage reduction, Haley's arrows bounce harmlessly off of her.
  • Dark Action Girl: A ruthless assassin that will gleefully kill anyone Bozzok tells her to.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The original cause of her and Haley's feud: Haley insulted her haircut and she insulted Haley's boots.
  • The Ditz: She's not intelligent enough for anything more complicated than "kill that person". Turning her into a sentient flesh golem probably hasn't made her any smarter, but at least she's more focused.
  • Dumb Muscle: Rich mentions that she's an inversion of the trope. The hulking, cunning half-orc has his dumb-as-rocks, lithe, petite girl as his deadliest enforcer. Being resurrected as a golem has significantly increased her physical strength, and though she's still not very bright, she doesn't get bored or distracted any longer.
  • Dump Stat: Intelligence, obviously, which is a horrible choice for the Assassin Prestige Class, since its Death Attack ability and spellcasting are reliant on Intelligence. Haley says that being turned into a flesh golem caused her intelligence to move laterally, instead of down.
  • Dying Declaration Of Hate:
    STARRRSHINE!! HATE YOU... so... much... hate...
  • Elemental Absorption: Using a Lightning Gun on her flesh golem form just made it even more dangerous.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: Her existence as a Flesh Golem: I FEEL NOTHING BUT PAIN!!
  • Goth: Although far less explicit than Haley's teenage self (and consequently, the embodiment of her self-loathing), Crystal's character design is close to this.
  • Hate at First Sight: The flashback of her first encounter with Haley strongly hints at this. And that it was reciprocated.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Averted. She turns on Bozzok when Haley points out her golem state is his fault, but she has no intention of redeeming herself, making it clear she intends to go on random killing sprees to dull the pain of her existence. So Haley puts her down for good.
  • Hostage Situation: When Haley escapes her reach with a fly spell, Crystal starts killing Innocent Bystanders left and right until Haley returns to the ground.
  • I'll Kill You!: First toward Haley, of course, and then to Belkar (because she was furious that he left her at 0 HP for Haley to kill later).
  • Insane Troll Logic: She noticed that Haley didn't like pickles and somehow ended up thinking they were her Weaksauce Weakness.
  • It Can Think: Bozzok has Grubwiggler use a much more expensive method of golem creation that allows Crystal to retain her intelligence and her memories as a flesh golem.
  • Kick the Dog: Haley mentions Crystal once headbutted an elderly gnome woman into a coma. The print version reveals this really did happen.
  • Killed Off for Real: Haley kills the Flesh-Golem Crystal by dropping her into a pool of lava that's used to dump waste.
  • Knife Nut: A violent and dimwitted knife user.
  • Last-Second Chance: Haley tries to subtly give her an opportunity to go off and find a more positive life after she kills Bozzok. Crystal decides she'd rather just stick with killing random people to temporarily dull her pain. Haley leads her to her death in a lava pit rather than let her do that.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Between immunity to Sneak Attacks, most spells, and high Damage Resistance, Crystal is very hard to hurt in her golem form. It takes being completely submerged in lava to finally bring her down.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Does this to Bozzok, beating him long after she has killed him.
  • No Punctuation Period: Once turned into a golem, her speech bubbles no longer have any punctuation, probably reflecting lack of inflection.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: After her death she's turned into a kind of flesh golem, which belongs to the Construct class of creature and is thus immune to stuff that works on the undead.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Turns on Bozzok after Haley points out that he could have raised her and bought a bunch of powerful items for the same cost as turning her into a golem.
  • The Rival: To Haley, and she gets levels for free as Haley does so they're always even. Though Belkar claims that Sabine is Haley's true nemesis (and is much hotter).
    Crystal: (ding) Sweet! Starshine must have gone up a level!
  • Sadist: She enjoys killing people, and after being made into a flesh golem, discovers she can reduce the pain by hurting others.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: A villainous example with the Genre Savvy and maliciously cunning Bozzok and the psychotic, bloodthirsty Crystal.
  • Super Strength: Following her transformation into a flesh golem, her unarmed attacks are powerful enough to send characters flying through the air with every blow. It's even worse once supercharged by lightning: she rips apart a Lightning Gun bigger than her and throws it at Haley like it's weighing nothing, and kills Bozzok by punching a hole right through him.
  • There Was a Door: Golem!Crystal smashes through a wall right next to an open door. Later, she bursts right through the wall of Bozzok and Grubwiggler's abode, intent on revenge.
  • Too Dumb to Live: The Giant mentions in the commentaries that Crystal doesn't have the intelligence to survive in Greysky City but has Bozzok to think for her and so she does. When you tell your rival, after a tiring mission, when you're going to shower (and thus be unarmed and not wearing any magic items) you deserve the fatality and qualify for this trope.
    • As a Flesh Golem she realized killing eases her constant pain somewhat, so she intends to stay in Tinkertown and kill, and tells this to Haley's face. Haley promptly leads her on a walk, talking about her and keeping her so distracted that she never notices she's being led to the Tinkertown waste-disposal facility.
  • Turn Coat: Haley manages to point out that while she killed Crystal, Bozzok went the extra mile of turning her into a flesh golem, causing her endless pain. To Bozzok, Crystal is just a tool. Crystal then turns on Bozzok.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: Sure, as a golem, Crystal is hell-bent on crushing Haley for revenge... but when it is pointed out to her, after a lengthy chase, that Haley just killed her, and it was Bozzok and Grubwiggler who are responsible for her coming back as a flesh golem in constant pain, she turns her rage toward them.
  • Weapon of Choice: A wicked-looking +4 dagger. Haley uses it to kill her and takes it for herself. It proves to be a Chekhov's Gun when Haley later uses it to distract Golem!Crystal.

    Hank 

Hank

"I mean, I'd prefer nobody got killed here, but what can you do? The Guild needs to keep its reputation. Nobody leaves, except in a casket."

Race: Halfling
Gender: Male
Class: Rogue
Alignment: True Neutral

The second-in-command of Greysky City's Thieves Guild. More reasonable than Bozzok, he's shown sympathy for Haley's plight, but still strictly enforces the Guild's rules.
  • Amoral Attorney: Not stated to be a lawyer, but definitely has the firmest grasp of the Thieves Guild's predictably byzantine rules, laws, and regulations, and, more importantly, how to exploit them at the expense of the Guild's employees to enrich himself, Bozzok and other high-ranking members (but mostly himself). Essentially, he's an Amoral Attorney in all but name.
  • Baddie Flattery: Compliments Celia's reasoning while chasing her for a supposed pot of gold.
    Hank: You make a very convincing argument in these tough economic times.
    Celia: Thank you! can I use you as a reference on my resume?
    Hank: By all means.
  • Conservation of Competence: He's smart enough to arrange his underlings for flank beatdowns, but they've still got a lot to learn about execution.
  • The Consigliere: Keeping with the mafia equivalence, he is this to Bozzok's Don, ensuring the smooth running of the guild by handling the bureaucratic part.
  • Contractual Genre Blindness: Finishing off the target is one thing, but profit is profit.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: He's a halfling; it's par for the course.
  • Friendly Enemy: Haley regards him as one, seeing as he informed her that Bozzok had no intention of letting her go. In Haley's ideal vision brought on by Girard's Gate's defenses, Hank stands with her father and her when they defeat Bozzok (or he's just happy with the regime change), indicating that she doesn't hold an enmity with him.
  • Go Look at the Distraction: Or in Celia's case, listen to it.
  • Halfling: His race, and like Belkar he is not jolly. Unlike Belkar, he has more intelligence than a lemming.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He's the go-to guy for verifying the Guild's laws, including the Guild's obligations, and he's willing to talk if the other side wants to renegotiate those terms but he's not a pushover — his memory is especially good regarding any loot that's owed to the Guild.
  • This Is Reality: Tells off Yor (a fighter) for calling his attacks, despite how often all classes do that in the OotS world.

    Jenny 

Jenny

"My name is Jenny, by the way! ...Just in case you ever... you know..."

Race: Human
Gender: Female
Class: Rogue/Bard/Sorcerer
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

A bard employed by the Thieves' Guild; one of the few people Haley got along with at the time. She has a fling with Belkar during his stay in Greysky City.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: She falls for Belkar after he stole a kiss from her and killed a bunch of her guildmates.
  • Come Back to Bed, Honey: Tries this on Belkar, but he's already forgotten her name.
  • Master of None: Her multiclass (specified in On the Origin of PCs) means plenty of redundant abilities and no strong point.
    Haley: Third level and you've already got three classes. So what kind of Base Attack Bonus are you sporting there now?
    Jenny: I don't want to talk about it.
  • Modesty Bedsheet: Check.
  • Music for Courage: Like all bards, she has spells for this.

    Hieronymus Grubwiggler 

Hieronymus Grubwiggler

"And indeed, he is not undead — he's a construct, bones animated by an earth elemental spirit bound under my control.
Which I guess technically makes my statement of, 'It's alive,' inaccurate, but I just love saying that."

Race: Human (presumably)
Gender: Male
Class: Wizard
Alignment: Neutral Evil

A wizard specialized in the creation of flesh golems, whom Celia hires, mistakenly thinking he's a cleric. Has a deal with the Greysky City Thieves' Guild to avoid further looting of his estate, Haley having done so already twice in the past.
  • All There in the Manual: In the print version of Don't Split the Party, Giro and Grubwiggler are killed by Crystal.
  • Back-Alley Doctor: In a variant for this trope, he's a back-alley resurrector. Worst, he's not even a cleric like Celia thought, but a wizard.
  • Back from the Dead: In Book 6, we learn that Bozzok had Grubwiggler resurrected after Crystal killed him, so that he could make a flesh golem out of his very own killer.
  • Bald of Evil: No hair on his head at all.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He won't create undead, but bone or flesh golems are fine.
  • Evil Makes You Ugly: He has green and warthy-looking skin, probably as a result of his unnatural experiments, as part of the Obviously Evil package.
  • Exact Words: "I promise, no undead. Vile, loathsome things. I would never create or use them." Fortunately, golems are constructs and not undead.
  • For Science!: He hates the guild politics and just wants to be left alone to do his research. It's also the reason why he made Crystal an intelligent flesh golem: he wanted to see what would happen.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: What he creates, complete with the obligatory statement, "It's alive! ALIVE!!!"
  • Grave Robbing: He doesn't do the dirty job himself, but he pays for corpses.
  • The Igor: Hieronymus has Giro, though the latter isn't a real hunchback. He stuffed something in his shirt to get the job.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: His attitude toward Celia when she refuses to pay him, though his interest in her body is explicitly for "spare parts".
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: By Crystal. He gets resurrected.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: Such as animating golems.
  • Luke Nounverber: "Grubwiggler"
  • Mad Scientist: The quintessential one; his lab, his assistant, and his golems are part of the parody.
  • Mad Scientist Laboratory: We got the darkness, the table with the straps, Tesla coils, you name it.
  • Necromancer: Though he doesn't create undead, he's still animating dead bodies.
  • Obviously Evil: Not just him, but his hideout too. Even Celia notices.
    Celia: Oh my gods! Looks at this place! It's like you got your furnishings from Hate & Barrel!
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When Bozzok is being beaten to death by Crystal, he refuses to help him because he is sick of the thieves interrupting his research, and calls Bozzok out on his stupidity. He then teleports away.
  • Sickly Green Glow: The color of his magic aura.
  • Wizard Beard: He has a beard and he is an old wizard class character.

    Old Blind Pete 

Old Blind Pete (formerly Eagle-Eye Pete)

"A word of advice: If you're going to do business with criminals, don't pick a nickname based on any body part you can't afford to lose."

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Rogue
Alignment: Unknown (probably Chaotic Neutral)

An old blind man who was Haley's friend when she was still in the Thieves' Guild. He used to be called "Eagle-Eyed Pete" before he had his eyes removed after doing some illegal work behind the Guild's back.
  • Blind Black Guy: He's blind, and he's dark-skinned. Unlike many examples of the trope, though, he's not benevolent.
  • Childhood Friends: With the Cleric of Loki, which is why they have their under-the-table business. Pete betrays him.
  • Make an Example of Them: Pete was blinded because he was caught selling Bozzok's secrets to his rivals.
  • Not in the Face!: "Please don't stab my eyes out, please don't stab my eyes out, please don't stab my eyes out..."
  • Too Dumb to Live: He returns to his house in the middle of a guild operation with several dangerous belligerents whom he personally betrayed. Naturally his death was quick and painful.
  • Turn Coat: Betrays Haley, Celia, Belkar, and his Cleric friend to the Thieves' Guild, so he could get his vision back.
  • Weapon of Choice: He was an archer in his youth.

    Cleric of Loki 

Cleric of Loki

"Look, I'm happy to help out a friend of Pete's, but you have to make it worth the huge risk I'm taking."

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Cleric
Alignment: Unknown (probably Chaotic Neutral)

A nameless Cleric of Loki that Pete hires to heal Belkar and send a message to Haley's friends.
  • Childhood Friends: With Pete. He's dismayed when Pete betrays them, and accepts Belkar's advice to kill him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The Thieves Guild Mooks who come after him don't regard him as much of a threat, and individually he might not be, but with Belkar doing the heavy hitting, he's plenty capable with his mace and offensive cleric spells.
  • Combat Medic: He un-curses Belkar, and assists him and Mr. Scruffy in escaping, by killing some enemies and healing Belkar.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: With the black armor, red cape, and worship of Loki he looks bad, but he's neutral.
  • Healing Hands: As a cleric he can do this.
  • Mauve Shirt: "I don't want to die, I've only been in one strip so far!"
  • No Name Given: Invoked Trope. He keeps his name untold, as he doesn't want to be identified by the Thieves' Guild.
  • Properly Paranoid: Believes that a panel cutaway means that people are planning on killing him. They are.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Skips town after the whole ordeal; he offers Belkar a job as a bodyguard, but Belkar declines, and the Cleric leaves on his own.
