James "Reaper" Hawkins
- "I don't give a damn about politics." (Pulls a picture of Akasha from his back) "This is why I'm here."Act II intro
Voiced by: Chris CoxBorn into a hardworking mining family in the Twin Souls clan. Four years ago, his sister Jester joined the security forces charged with protecting the clan. After a skirmish left her injured, Reaper left the mines and joined the forces in order to watch for her safety. He lost everything on Twin Souls, and will not rest until he sees the total annihilation of those responsible.
- Bash Brothers: Literally, with Jester. The first match in the campaign is a 1on1 match against her.
- Bolivian Army Ending
- Calling the Old Man Out: Several times, against Malcolm.
Reaper: This isn't war - this is slaughter. You call this calculated losses? Collateral damage?Malcolm: We didn't think they'd came this fast... attack every front...Reaper: You wanted them to break the rules, start an open war... Take a look, you got your wish!Malcolm: They came too fast... we didn't provoke this... they must have been preparing for years...Reaper: Yeah, you blew it. But this was coming no matter what we did... Only one thing to do now. Let's kick some Necris ass.
- Aftermath to the Necris' invasion:
- Expy: Of Marcus Fenix from Gears of War.
- Facial Markings
- The Hero
- Improbable Use of a Weapon: He uses his Rocket Launcher to stomp Akasha's head in the end of the game.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: What he seeks after his colony is overrun by the Krall.Malcolm: Listen. I heard what happened to your colony. I know you want blood. This job gets you there faster. Trust me.
"Only one person knew our plans. That makes you next... Malcolm."
- And then, against Malcolm.
Sarah "Jester" Hawkins
Voiced by: Andrea BakerBorn into a hardworking mining family in the Twin Souls clan, she never showed much aptitude for mining; her capricious, happy-go-lucky attitude was not a fit for the dangerous, methodical lifestyle of a miner. Instead, she chose an even more dangerous route by joining the security forces charged with protecting the clan's interests at the colony and abroad. Once known for her lighthearted nature, Jester's entire world shifted when the Krall slaughtered her parents and friends. Her acrobatics in combat and carefree approach left her with the nickname "Jester".
- Action Girl
- Bash Brothers: Literally, with Reaper.
- Died in Your Arms TonightReaper: Jester... My little Sarah... I'm so sorry.
- The Chick
- Genre Savvy: She notices a lot of stuff which later happens. In fact, she was the first to notice that the trip to Omicron-6 was a trap all along."Something's wrong. Feels like a trap."
- The Heart
- Killed Off for Real
- The Lancer: Shared with Othello.
- Warrior Therapist: To Reaper, in the first match:Reaper: Damn. Dying HURTS!Jester: Try not to tense up.Reaper: That sounds easy"Need more bedrest?""Nice one, big brother!"
- You Gotta Have Pink Hair
Terrence "Othello" Marshall
Voiced by: Terrence CarsonBorn into a family of means, and never had to work to support himself. Instead, he challenged himself with the most deadly jobs and adrenaline-fueling adventures around the galaxy, which includes a participation in the Liandri Grand Tournament, and mercenary work in against-all-odds military conflicts. He became a drifter, floating from colony to colony, teeding his needs as a street brawler and soldier for hire. A series of unfortunate coincidences made him a first-hand witness to the Twin Souls Massacre.
- Actor Allusion: He's voiced by Terrence Carson, the voice of Kratos. Othello's real name and his facial markings being a reminiscence of Kratos's also reflects this.
- The Big Guy
- Blood Knight: He enjoys fighting.Othello: Hell yeah, this is my kind of fight!Jester: The kind where we all die, Othello?
- Killed Off for Real
- The Lancer: Shared with Jester.
Jeremiah "Bishop" O'Connor
- "We shall take revenge on all who oppose us!"— Act V intro.
Voiced by: Nolan NorthRonin team's resident Cold Sniper. He's a Warrior Poet who considers himself a Crusader, a Knight Templar on a mission from god. Those falling outside of his close circle of friends, or worse, those serving on an opposing force in a battle, are subject to his brand of divine justice. No church would ever sanction his methods. His tactics usually fall just within the limits of legality and wartime treaty convention, but they never fit well within a civilized society or regular army. Thus Bishop found himself on the fringes of known space, serving as a mercenary by day and an exceedingly unpopular army chaplain by night. He may be unstable, but his deep inner focus, intense personality, and steady aim make him a valuable asset.
