* {{BFG}}: [[spoiler: His ARM is the one Kartikeya used to kill his family.]]
* TheBigGuy
* ClearMyName: [[spoiler:Subverted. He tries to at first, but when he realizes that he has no proof and that no one will believe him, he gives up and goes on his quest for revenge. He's later cleared when his father-in-law sees Kartikeya for himself.]]

* DirtyOldMan: Downplayed since he doesn't show it a lot, but he does give off a suspicious smirk when the group comes across at risque magazine...

* StoneWall: He initially seems to be a MightyGlacier, being slow as molasses but coming in with a Sword Medium for the highest damage in the party, plus an ability and the defense to be pretty meaty.
