Characters: Thieves & Kings
The cast of Thieves & Kings


A Thief — which in this world is not a pickpocket, but a firmly established legendary rogue archetype, who is expected to have swashbuckling adventures, fight monsters, thumb his nose at authorities and woo pretty girls. People he meets are suitably impressed.



An imp, and Rubel's fiercely loyal sidekick. Not very bright, and with a limited memory, he often argues with Rubels goals and methods. In the past, he has sidekicked for Rubel's mentor Quinton, and a few of Katara's preincarnations, though he remembers little about it.



The princess and legal heir to the kingdom — and also the reincarnation of the powerful Red Sorceress. Rubel is her sworn Thief. At the outset of the series, Katara has disappeared, leaving her evil brother Kangar manoeuvering to seize control of the kingdom. By the time we see Katara again, she has taken several levels in badass, become leader of a horde of trolls, and is planning to retake her kingdom by force.



Initially the main villain. Thousands of years old, wielding two oversized magical blades and wrapped in a cape of magical shadow, she acts as The Dragon for the Big Bad. She is the sister of the first incarnation (that we know of) of the Red Sorceress. While her sister has been reincarnated dozens of times, she's stayed alive all this time, growing in power and cunning.


Quinton Zempfester

The greatest wizard in the world (though we never see him doing any actual magic) and more than half crazy. He is generally at the center of a Gambit Roulette, aided by the fact that he can convince anyone to do nearly anything. Deceptively young looking, he's old enough to refer to Soracia as "Kiddo". The as-of-yet-unseen Big Bad is his brother.


Heath Wingwit

A young peasant girl and another reincarnation of the Red Sorceress. Through Quinton's Time Travel shenanigans, this preincarnation of Katara is currently living in the same time period as her. This paradox is implied to do not-good things to Katara's sanity. Heath is currently studying magic, with mixed success.



A girl who is studying magic under the Wicked Witch Locumire. She is the reincarnation of one of the souls bound to Soracia's magical swords. She and her best friend Leahanna met Rubel while he was tied to a pole at Locumire's, awaiting a grisly fate. Despite being on the villains' side, she is a nice and thoughtful girl who gets along quite well with Rubel and after her Heel-Face Turn, she eventually starts a romantic relationship with him.
