Trace was born into a poor family of farmers, but his talents in magic were quickly recognized and at a young age he was recruited into the Templar. He rose through the ranks and eventually took over the organization as Grand Templar following the death of his first wife. He quickly became known as a tyrant, feared by Humans and Keidran alike. His incredible power allowed him to dominate all those who opposed him. However, his memories were stolen from him, along with his deep-seeded hatred for Keidran. He now travels alongside Flora, a Keidran he befriended in ignorance to the ways he once thought of them. However, his memories are slowly returning, and with them a knowledge of a past he'd rather have remain forgotten.
Black Magic: He tried to master this to bring his dead wife back, and is probably one of the most skilled users of it in the world. Unfortunately for everyone, black magic has detrimental effects on a practitioner's sanity...
The Dark Side Makes You Forget: Trace began studying Black Magic to find a way to bring his beloved wife back from the dead. Somehow, his goal turned from that to "become leader of the humans and turn them into an instrument of Keidran genocide".
Enemy Within: Trace's Super-Powered Evil Side has recently proven capable of communicating with him, and is in fact trying to turn him against Flora by suggesting she's been unfaithful to him and is now pregnant with someone else's child. Trace initially laughed it off because it was clearly lying, as he tells Flora... but he's just been told she really is pregnant...
Flora was born in the southern rainforests of her tribe. However, at the age of three her home was attacked by slave traders. Her parents were killed and she was sold into slavery. Flora was lucky enough to be purchased by a friendly human family, who treated her more like a daughter then a slave. Thus, Flora recalls her days of slavery with an unusual fondness. She has no memory of the day her tribe was attacked. Flora eventually was allowed by her human family to return to her people. Due of her knowledge of human nature and language, she was chosen to be a representative of the Tiger Clan and a marriage was arranged between her and a prince of the Wolf Clan. The arrangement fell through, though, when her caravan was attacked. She was saved from the human attackers by Trace, who had just recently lost his memories.
A Wizard Did It: Well, a god, really. Flora's half-human baby is due to Neutral's intervention. Although it's strongly implied it's more that the god in question has been preventing human/Keidran sex from producing crossbreeds until now.
Cat Girl: Though further down the Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism than most; she has feline-like digitigrade legs, a full-body coat of fur, and what is implied to be a muzzle-like face, though this is less pronounced than it is with Natani.
Half-Human Hybrid: She's currently pregnant with one of these, though she's only just accepted it and still hasn't revealed it to the father.
The reveal has come as of comic 738. He hasn't regained consciousness to ask her how it happened, and she's terrified that he'll accuse her of being unfaithful. Especially as he just told her that his Enemy Within was trying to turn him against her by claiming she was pregnant as a result of being unfaithful.
Keith was born on the Basidian Islands, a large landmass located near the mainland. His father was a General, his mother was a soldier, but she sheltered him from military life for much of his childhood. Like all Basitins, he did eventually join the military, but at 8 years of age, late for most Basitins. Keith was blamed for his parents death at the age of 13 and banished from the islands. He was ordered not to return until he brought back the Grand Templar.
The Atoner: Mostly for things that weren't his fault, though he actually did kill his father.
Killer Rabbit: He's the smallest member of the group, with even Flora being almost a head taller than him. He's also incredible strong and tough, immune to poison and heals like lightning.
Natani was forced to live homeless with her brother after her parents and tribe were destroyed by human Templar. She eventually disguised herself as a male and, along with her brother, joined an assassins guild to make ends meet. Due to an accident during an assassination mission, Natani became magically and permanently linked to her brother, and much of her brother's male personality overpowered her own. Though she realizes her body is female, she has convinced herself she is really male.
Big Breasts, Big Deal: According to an official size chart, Natani is the bustiest of the female characters, but she literally couldn't care less due to the fact she thinks of herself as male.
Can't Spit It Out: Natani cannot bring herself to admit her feelings to Keith. Justified due to the fact she's still struggling to admit her attraction to him to herself and the fact he just lost his former lover.
Incompatible Orientation: Sort of. Natani is biologically female, and retains enough of a feminine persona to find men (or possibly only Keith) attractive, but the bulk of her mental persona is heterosexual male, meaning she's repulsed at the thought of being with guys at the same time she's attracted to them.
The Nose Knows: One of Natani's problems is a purely visual disguise won't fool other Keidran; she has to fool their sense of smell as well.
Master of Illusion: Natani's a decently skilled wizard in her own right, but her focus is on illusions, and she's quite good with them.
The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: For an assassin, Natani is a pretty lousy fighter. Even the comic's author notes that the "famous Magi Brothers" owe much of their hype to luck and their own boasting.
Transsexual: Due to having parts of her soul filled in with her brother's, Natani's mental self-image is predominantly male, despite the fact her body is 100% female.
Karen is the hyperactive younger of the Taverndatter sisters. She doesn't care about races or wars or religions. She just enjoys interesting stuff, and if nothing interesting is happening, she tends to cause it. Karen's set of Keidran ears were given to her as a curse by Trace, whom she was annoying. The curse backfired, however, when Karen decided she loved the ears and wanted to keep them.
Maren is the bossy elder of the Taverndatter sisters. She's one of Trace's current "girlfriends," though Trace and her were never seriously involved. They met at her tavern as Trace was passing by during his missions. She knew Trace still loved his wife, who had passed away years before; and she knew she was really just being used by Trace as a momentary distraction. But she stayed with him, nonetheless.
He was one of Trace's friends from the Templar Academy. However, he dropped out after a few years when he showed little magical development. He later joined the local militia of his hometown. He hates and distrusts all Keidran, which causes complications when circumstances force him and his friends to make common cause with Sythe. He's also developed a crush on Raine, which rocks his whole world when her true nature is revealed
Blood Knight: His war-cry is "In the Name of Meaningless Battle!!!".
Noble Bigot: his hatred is always expressed as a desire to protect humans
When All You Have Is a Hammer: A sword in this case. It gets into trouble when Raine turns into Keidran by her shape shifting magic. He attacked her thinking she was an enemy.
Red: I'm so used to solving my problems by hitting them until they go away, but... this time it was a mistake. I'm sorry.
The daughter of Trace's predecessor Grand Templar Mary Silverlock and High Templar Euchre, a male wolf Keidran shape-shifter unknowingly accepted into the Templar ranks. Raine has a powerful magic potential but no formal training, so the results tend to be erratic. She also has two forms, human and Keidran, but little control over her transformations between them, because her mother hid this ability from other humans and even Raine herself using a series of increasingly powerful magic artifacts. Raine currently only retains her human appearance due to the powerful spell on the metal cuffs she wears, but as that spell only works while the cuffs are closed she constantly risks exposure.
Chained by Fashion: She has to wear enchanted shackles because without them her ability to control her form-shifting is too unstable and she reverts back to Keidran form.
Half-Human Hybrid: Her father is High Templar Euchre, who is a Keidran that can shape-shift into a human form, and this has made her the same sort of being, while her mother is Mary Silverlock, the Grand Templar before Trace Legacy, who was human.
Our Werewolves Are Different: She's the daughter of a male Keidran who had the innate ability to shapeshift into a human form, meaning she can shift shapes as well. Both of them are wolf Keidran for added measure.
Windows Of The Soul: Red is initially can't believe she hasn't been replaced by a Keidran but one good look into her eyes and he's convinced.
Prince of the Wolf clan and Flora's former fiance. During a raid on the human village Sythe is forced to choose between his loyalty to his people and killing the only humans he actually knows. Unfortunately for him, he hesitated just a bit too long, and was forced to throw in his luck with Raine, [Database Error], and the Taverndatter sisters to seek a place where Keidran and Human can live and let live.
High Templar Euchre
A male wolf Keidran unknowingly accepted into the Templar's ranks thanks to his innate mystical ability to flawlessly transform into a human man in every physical detail. Raine's father, he also mentored Flora during her childhood in his guise as a Keidran indentured servant. Is he an infiltrator or a race traitor? Either way, he appears to be playing a deep game of his own.
Interspecies Romance: Had a sexual relationship with a fellow Templar, future Grand Templar Mary Silverlock, which resulted in Raine.
Smug Snake: Raine describes her father, as described to her by her mother, as being "manipulative and self-serving" by nature. He never even confessed to Mary about what he was until she confronted him on it, having learned by reading the mind of his cousin... who he was willing to let another Templar hang in order to preserve his secret.
A young female Basitin who has developed a massive crush on Keith, despite (or perhaps because) of his Dark and Troubled Past.
Obfuscating Stupidity: It's unintentional, but when Maddie slips a note to Natani (who can't read it) Natani assumes it's just an adolescent girl's juvenile love note to her crush because Maddie covered it with cutesy decorations. Turns out it's actually a vital report on Keith's battle with Alaric.
