ShardakThe main protagonist. Shardak is the son of Arcturas, and a half-Toa, half-Elemental thought to be the legendary Spirit Toa of the Final Prophecy destined to complete the rising of Lord Vahrikaan or destroy him, and is hunted by both the Ix and the resistance because of this though it turns out he's not actually the Spirit Toa. Shardak is impulsive, and rather naive and idealistic at the beginning of the series. He tends toward frequently acting without thinking.
FaironOriginally an inhabitant of Arcaea and member of the Toa Order and the real Spirit Toa, Fairon was captured by the Ix and sentenced to the Eternal Game. He survives, and becomes a leading figure in the Xaterex Resistance. Is killed in the final battle in a Mutual Kill with Lord Vahrikaan.
ValkyriaA female Ix warrior and assassin, sent on a mission to kill Toa Shardak with a strike team- only to save his life (and be saved by him) on many occasions. They eventually fall in love, though not before trying to kill each other multiple times.
The Resistance are the enemies of the Ix Empire, a ragtag army composed of Veythari, Glatorian, Matoran, Agori, and a few Toa. They step out of the shadows at the end of The Shadows Coil, and begin actively opposing the Ix Empire in The Darkest Light. The Resistance fragments after Shattering, with about three-quarters following Saren Naghara and the others going into hiding and fighting their own war against the Order of Vahrikaan after Saren's betrayal. Saren is defeated during the Battle of Calos, and then his fleet is destroyed almost completely in a battle there again a month later. The Resistance is reunified after Saren's defeat, and becomes the governing body of Xaterex.
General tropes associated with the Resistance:
Blast/ CrystillixShardak's best friend, a Glatorian native of Intax. Accompanies Shardak on his journey to track down the Ix. Eventually revealed to be a powerful enemy of the Ix who'd been sentenced to the Eternal Game, but managed to escape with the help of Millennium, who implanted the illusion that he'd been a native of Intax all of his life in the minds of every being in the city. He eventually frees himself from Millennium's control and becomes a warrior in the Xaterex resistance. Killed during the final battle of Shadovar while hosting Millennium's spirit.
SilencerA mutated Toa of Fire and Shardak's first mentor. Helps him escape the Ix and is killed in a duel with the Fury, an Ix commander who he'd sworn vengeance on.
MelnoxSilencer's brother, a secondary mentor to Shardak. Is captured and killed by the Ix at the end of Into the Darkness.
IonA friend of Silencer and a member of the Resistance High Council. Ion takes over Shardak's training after The deaths of Silencer and Melnox, but is killed in The Darkest Light by Skorpix.
AtarusThe [[Rebel Leader]], and Arcturas' brother. Becomes Shardak's mentor after the death of Ion, and [[spoiler: after the war, helps reform the government of Xaterex.
ArkhanA Glatorian and member of the Resistance high council, friend of Shardak.
ParikonA Great Being, the last survivor of his species from Arcaea. The overall second-in-command of the Resistance, superseded only by Atarus. Killed by Reyna in The Final Prophecy.
FreztrakA Skakdi leader in the Resistance.
Saren NagharaA Glatorian commander in the resistance, seems to sympathize with Shardak the most. In reality an Ix spy with his own plan for betraying both the Resistance and the Empire. Killed by Vahrikaan's Rotaxian avatar after being defeated in Eternal Darkness.
TiralThe commander of the Resistance's small fleet of Arcaean starcraft. Sides with Saren, but more through accident then choice. Betrays him when she learns of his betrayal, but is killed during the final battle in Shadovar.
Ix Empire/The Order of Vahrikaan
The Ix Empire are the largest enemy force in the series, comprised of the Ix and their servant races, such as the Kranr. A tyranncial and powerful imperial power. They were responsible for the death of Arcturas, and their leadership is shrouded in secrecy. In Shattering, it is revealed that the Ix Empire is a front for the secret organization known as the Order of Vahrikaan, who plan to bring free their ancient master, the Dark Lord Vahrikaan, from his prison inside the Annulus. Both the Order and the Empire are ultimately defeated by the Resistance and the Sleikha Inferni, and with the death of Vahrikaan the Order effectively ceased to exist.
