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

%% Alignment confirmed by Word of the Giant.

The head of Greysky City's Thieves' Guild. He tries to kill Haley for defecting from the organization.
* BrutalHonesty: Regardless of whether or not it was a smart idea for him to do so, everything he says to Crystal right before [[spoiler:she kills him]] is pretty much 100% true.
* BullyingADragon: Thinking it was a great idea to tell [[spoiler:the murderous, enraged Crystal-golem that she's a complete moron and a "rabid dog" who always needed someone to hold her leash]]. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown What happens next is entirely predictable.]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Bozzok's word has very little value. He used Pete as a scapegoat when his operation against Haley, Belkar and Celia went wrong, he raided Grubwiggler's castle despite Grubwiggler paying him substantial amounts of protection money and doing nothing to betray him, he gave Crystal orders to betray Haley and make it look like an accident during the raid, he has open contempt for the lives and well-being of his low-level subordinates, slightly less ''open'' contempt for the lives and well-being of his higher-level subordinates, and tricked Ian into a life of suffering in the Empire of Blood. He ends up dying due to a MistreatmentInducedBetrayal.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: 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.
-->'''Bozzok:''' Really, it's an improvement all around.
* TheDon: Since the Thieves' Guild runs like a mafia he fits this trope; making deals, running protection rackets, etc.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Bozzok is superficially a {{reasonable|AuthorityFigure}}, {{honor|AmongThieves}}able head of the Thieves Guild, but shows himself to be utterly amoral. He twice betrays truces with Haley to try to have her killed, [[spoiler:engineered Ian's imprisonment]] because Ian's [[JustLikeRobinHood non-violent methods]] were too popular in the Guild, and [[spoiler:animated Crystal as a [[AndIMustScream tortured]] flesh golem]] instead of having his dead employees raised. And when there were easy ways out for both of those situations that would have ''made'' him money, he refused to take them if it meant accepting someone got the better of him.
* FatalFlaw: His {{Pride}}. He rejects win-win situations multiple times simply because the thought of someone he doesn't like getting ahead is intolerable to his ego.
* GeniusBruiser: He's a half-orc with a broadsword and more intelligence than any five members in his guild.
* GenreSavvy: Knows that Ian only trusts family [[spoiler: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 finds out Haley is returning, he tells Crystal to [[CombatPragmatist just break her weapon]], which obviously cut deeply into the threat Haley poses to him.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Half-orc.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Oh yes, Bozzok, turning Crystal into [[spoiler: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.]]
* IdiotBall: Bozzok grabs onto it when he continues to demean and boss around [[spoiler:the Crystal golem, who's already pissed at him. It ends poorly for him]].
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Crystal [[spoiler:kills him by punching a hole right through his chest, which is followed by a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown]].
* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: On the receiving end when [[spoiler:Crystal, in revenge for turning her into a horrible monster that can't feel anything but pain and rage, impales him on her fist and continues PummelingTheCorpse for a while.]]
* ImprobablePowerDiscrepancy: Aside from being the leader of a thieves guild, not obviously special or notable to any degree... but his ability to Sneak Attack Haley implies he's at least 16th-17th level. This would make him roughly the same level as Redcloak, and possibly higher than Miko. According to him, killing people trying to leave the Guild makes for good practice.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: Laid out his role in having Ian "removed from play" to Haley, [[JustifiedTrope allowing Crystal to take a flanking position.]]
* KarmicDeath: He used the money he could have used to revive the rogues Haley killed paying Grubwiggler to [[spoiler:turn Crystal into a self-aware golem, and is killed by said Golem while Grubwiggler refuses to help him]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Turning Crystal into [[spoiler:a hideous golem constantly in pain]] is definitely horrible, but it's Crystal.
* MercyLead: 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.
* MoneyIsNotPower: Learns this when Grubwiggler has had it with him, and doesn't care how much he tries to pay him.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Belkar can block his attacks with a shield despite Bozzok being a half-orc twice his size. Justified by their character builds, Bozzok is a Rogue while Belkar is a Ranger/Barbarian, which means in straight combat Belkar has the edge.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Oh Bozzok, if only you hadn't paid extra to have the [[spoiler:Crystal golem still be sentient. Then Haley couldn't have reasoned with her]].
* ResignationsNotAccepted: 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 [[spoiler: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]].
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: A villainous example with the GenreSavvy and maliciously cunning Bozzok and the psychotic, bloodthirsty Crystal.
* SmugSnake: Grubwiggler tells him he was never as clever as he thought before teleporting away. Bozzok ''was'' clever... but Grubwiggler is still right.
** This also applies to his combat skills; he's evidently proud of his abilities, but his only onscreen victory is against an injured, unarmed Haley that he was fighting two-on-one. Belkar described him as a glorified pickpocket, and without his Sneak Attack, he has trouble even whittling Haley down in melee while she shoots his flankers to death.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Spelled "Bozzak" in ''On the Origin of [=PCs=]''.
* StereotypeFlip: Yes, he's a half-orc. No, he's NOT the stereotypical dumb brute you'd expect him to be.
* TooDumbToLive: Sure Bozzok, make Crystal into [[spoiler: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?]]
* VillainousBreakdown: Descends into this after [[spoiler:the Crystal golem turns against him and Grubwiggler abandons him. He tries to bully Crystal back into submission and she kills him]].
* WeaponOfChoice: A bastard sword and shield.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: 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.

'''Alignment:''' NeutralEvil
%% Alignment confirmed by Word of the Giant.

TheRival 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.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:Being brought back as a sentient flesh golem leaves her in constant agony]].
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: According to Bozzok, Crystal would often get bored with her assignments, resulting in her wandering off to get high or just plain forget what she was doing.
* BackFromTheDead: Crystal [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0971.html reappears]] [[spoiler:as a sort of flesh golem]], punching Elan across the street with a Sneak Attack and going after Haley with her bare hands.
* BadassNormal: 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.
* BareYourMidriff: Just like Haley, Crystal's top doesn't go all the way down.
* CameBackStrong: Once she [[spoiler:gets turned into a flesh golem]], Crystal is clearly stronger than ever, and much more dangerous.
* CameBackWrong: After [[spoiler:returning as a flesh golem]], she claims that she feels nothing ''but'' pain. Haley uses this to turn her against Bozzok.
* CapsLock: Her speech bubbles [[spoiler:after being turned into a golem]] are stuck in all-caps.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Crystal talks about shoving a barrel full of pickles up Haley's uterus.
* DamageReduction: When she returns as [[spoiler:a golem, a type of monster renowned for high damage reduction]], Haley's arrows bounce harmlessly off of her.
* DarkActionGirl: A ruthless assassin that will gleefully kill anyone Bozzok tells her to.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The original cause of her and Haley's feud: [[spoiler:Haley insulted her haircut and she insulted Haley's boots]].
* TheDitz: She's not intelligent enough for anything more complicated than "kill that person". [[spoiler:Turning her into a sentient flesh golem probably hasn't made her any smarter, but at least she's more focused.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: 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 [[spoiler:turning her into a golem]].
* DumbMuscle: Rich mentions that she's an inversion of the trope. The hulking half-orc is cunning and has a dumb-as-rocks, lithe, petite girl as his deadliest enforcer. [[spoiler: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.]]
* DumpStat: Intelligence, obviously, which is a horrible choice for the Assassin PrestigeClass, since its Death Attack ability and spellcasting are reliant on Intelligence. Haley says that [[spoiler:being turned into a flesh golem]] caused her intelligence to move laterally, instead of down, and the strip's title implies she may have come out ''ahead''.
* DyingDeclarationOfHate:
-->[[spoiler:'''Crystal:''' STARRRSHINE!! HATE YOU... so... much... hate...]]
* ElementalAbsorption: [[spoiler:Using a LightningGun on her flesh golem form just made it ''even more dangerous''.]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:Her existence as a Flesh Golem: [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0978.html I FEEL NOTHING BUT PAIN!!]]]]
* GoneHorriblyRight: [[spoiler:Bozzok had her remade into a self-aware golem so she can retain her skills, and her new state is actually more focused. However, this means Haley is able to convince her that Bozzok is the one responsible for her constant pain, and being self-aware means Grubwiggler doesn't have a override to control her]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Grubwiggler:''' If you were willing to pay me extra to craft a golem that gives up the main benefit of employing a golem, who was I to argue?]]
* {{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.
* HateAtFirstSight: The flashback of her first encounter with Haley strongly hints at this. And that it was reciprocated.
* HeelFaceTurn: Averted. She turns on Bozzok when Haley points out [[spoiler: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. [[spoiler:So Haley puts her down for good.]]
* HostageSituation: When Haley escapes her reach with a fly spell, Crystal starts killing {{Innocent Bystander}}s left and right until Haley returns to the ground.
* IllKillYou: 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).
* InsaneTrollLogic: She noticed that Haley didn't like pickles and somehow ended up thinking they were her WeaksauceWeakness.
* ItCanThink: [[spoiler: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. She's also at the very least much more focused than her old self, and might possibly be more intelligent than before -- if the HostageSituation is the result of an actual plan rather than a happy coincidence from venting her frustrations.]]
* KickTheDog: Haley mentions Crystal once headbutted an elderly gnome woman into a coma. The print version reveals this really did happen.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Haley kills the Flesh-Golem Crystal by dropping her into a pool of lava that's used to dump waste.]]
* KnifeNut: A violent and dimwitted knife user.
* LastSecondChance: 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. [[spoiler:Haley leads her to her death in a lava pit rather than let her do that.]]
* NighInvulnerability: Between immunity to Sneak Attacks, most spells, and high Damage Resistance, Crystal is very hard to hurt [[spoiler:in her golem form. It takes being completely submerged in lava to finally bring her down.]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Does this to Bozzok, beating him long after she has killed him.
* NoPunctuationPeriod: [[spoiler:Once turned into a golem]], her speech bubbles have barely any punctuation (save for a few exclamation marks), probably reflecting lack of inflection.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: [[spoiler: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.]]
* TheRival: 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 [[spoiler:being made into a flesh golem]], discovers she can reduce the pain by hurting others.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: A villainous example with the GenreSavvy and maliciously cunning Bozzok and the psychotic, bloodthirsty Crystal.
* StealthPun: Yes, a crystal golem is a golem made of crystal, which can exist... except [[spoiler:Crystal isn't one, she's a [[DontExplainTheJoke flesh golem named Crystal]]]].
* SuperStrength: Following her [[spoiler:transformation into a flesh golem]], her unarmed attacks are powerful enough to send characters [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom flying through the air with every blow]]. It's even worse once supercharged by lightning: she rips apart a LightningGun bigger than her and throws it at Haley like it weighs nothing, and kills Bozzok by punching a hole right through him.
* ThereWasADoor: [[spoiler:Golem]] Crystal smashes through a wall [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0976.html right next to an open door]]. Later, [[spoiler:she bursts right through the wall of Bozzok and Grubwiggler's abode, intent on revenge]].
* TooDumbToLive:
** 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 during which you attempted to betray and murder said rival, that you're going to shower (and thus will be unarmed and not wearing any protective magic items) you deserve the fatality and qualify for this trope.
** [[spoiler: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 [[KillItWithFire Tinkertown waste-disposal facility.]]]]
* TurnCoat: Haley manages to point out that while she killed Crystal, Bozzok went the extra mile of [[spoiler:turning her into a flesh golem]], causing her endless pain. To Bozzok, Crystal is just a tool. Crystal then turns on Bozzok.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Sure, [[spoiler: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 [[spoiler:coming back as a flesh golem in constant pain]], she turns her rage toward them.
* WeaponOfChoice: A wicked-looking +4 dagger. Haley uses it to kill her and takes it for herself. It proves to be a ChekhovsGun when Haley later uses it to distract [[spoiler:Golem]] Crystal.

%% Alignment confirmed by Word of the Giant.

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.
* AmoralAttorney: 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 AmoralAttorney in all but name.
* BaddieFlattery: Compliments Celia's reasoning while chasing her [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0604.html 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.
* ConservationOfCompetence: He's smart enough to arrange his underlings for flank beatdowns, but [[SurroundedByIdiots they've still got a lot to learn]] about execution.
* TheConsigliere: Keeping with the mafia equivalence, he is this to Bozzok's Don, ensuring the smooth running of the guild by handling the bureaucratic part.
* ContractualGenreBlindness: Finishing off the target is one thing, but [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0604.html profit is profit]].
* DoesNotLikeShoes: He's a halfling; it's par for the course.
* FriendlyEnemy: Haley regards him as one, seeing as he informed her that Bozzok had no intention of letting her go. [[spoiler: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.]]
* GoLookAtTheDistraction: Or in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0615.html 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.
* MookLieutenant: Doesn't get his hand dirty, but he needs to be present since his underlings are low-level thieves and one slightly dim fighter who need coordination.
* PragmaticVillainy: 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.
* ThisIsReality: Tells off Yor (a fighter) for [[CallingYourAttacks calling his attacks]], despite how often ''all'' classes do that in the ''[=OotS=]'' world.

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 selling Guild secrets to Bozzok's enemies.
* BlindBlackGuy: He's blind, and he's dark-skinned. Unlike many examples of the trope, though, [[spoiler:he's not benevolent]].

* AllThereInTheManual: In the print version of ''Don't Split the Party'', [[spoiler:Giro and Grubwiggler are killed by Crystal.]]

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Skips town after the whole ordeal; he offers Belkar a job as a bodyguard, but Belkar declines, and the Cleric leaves on his own.
* WorfHadTheFlu: As a cleric strong enough to cast Sending, it's explained why he isn't strong enough to try to fight the thieves himself or escape the area: he was on healing duty in the temple, and as a cleric of an evil god, he can't convert prepared spells into healing, so most of his spell list that day is just Cure Wounds or Cure Disease.
