!Whelkshore Alliance
The Whelkshore Alliance are the at least semiofficial "main characters" of ORP and the go-to heroic group. They range from far-seeing idealists like Zebedee and Sly to more present-focused pragmatists like Natalie and Ender, but all share a basic understanding of the right thing to do and a drive to do it. Zebedee has two houses and Sly has a mansion in the same neighborhood in Whelkshore, so other members can often be found putting up there as tenants.

[[Characters/ArchipelagoExodusGenlab#Rie Rie Nepas]] and [[Characters/ArchipelagoExodusGenlab#Ender Ender Kimoned]] ([[Characters/ArchipelagoExodusGenlab Genlab]]) are longstanding friends of the Whelkshore group and are often counted within this alliance. [[Characters/ArchipelagoExodusRogues#Terrian Terrian Brogue]] ([[Characters/ArchipelagoExodusRogues Rogues & Brogues]]) is also friendly with some of the Whelkshore group and spent a brief period living here. [[Characters/ArchipelagoExodusMiscGood#Albatross Albatross Trevelyan]] and [[Characters/ArchipelagoExodusMiscGood#Prime Prime]] are friends and often allies of the group as well.

'''Thyra Russell''' (''Lee'')

* DoomedHometown: Slateport.
* ImprobableUseOfAWeapon: Her sling is apparently indestructable, leading to her using it as a garotte, a snare, and even for blocking swords.
* {{Meganekko}}
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Thyraís forcefield powers cut off airflow when she uses them, providing a hard limit to an otherwise powerful defensive tool.
* SelfDeprecation: Mild meta example - has a conversation with Kilik about how most Powers are more than willing to jump into adventures instead of teach a bunch of kids. Both Lee and Elliot are extremely guilty of this.
* SilkHidingSteel: From Lee's Formspring:
--> Used right, she's a subtle but powerful leader who can run events and play people without ever visibly seizing control of the situation. (I guess you could say her style is the ideal Biblical wife. Though not as overt as the male leader, she uses thrift, cunning, charisma, and raw talent to govern and protect her domain, all without abandoning her dignified nature.)

'''(Sylvia) Natalie Ulima''' (''Lee'')
* ActionGirl
* AdventureDuo: With Emily. Natalie's the serious Hero variant here, of course.
* AnimalMotifs: A general theme; Natalie's literary voice frequently uses terms that more commonly used for animals than people (haunches, growled, roared, darted, purred, and so forth).
* BareYourMidriff
* BarrierBustingBlow: Rips a mook through a wall using her whip-sword in Ishkabibble.
* BerserkButton: She, um, has a few. Mostly other characters. You know, like the Summoners. And Terrian. And... I could go on.
* FightsLikeANormal: Besides the occasional FlashStep, you wouldn't know she's a Power in most of her fight scenes. She basically only uses her shapeshifting to heal. WordOfGod is "Natalie's most dangerous form is '''Natalie'''."
* FlashStep
* HealingFactor: When she changes form, her body recovers some damage in vital areas.
* HeroAntagonist: In recent years, she's spent a lot more time as TheDreaded among the Summoners and Fascere Order than she has as the main character of any RP.
* HeyYou
* TheMcCoy: Conspicuously, she seems to be this without necessarily being TheHeart of the Whelkshore Alliance.
* MookHorrorShow: When not fighting other characters, she's known for ripping through dozens of enemies in rather horrifying and crippling ways.
* PrimalStance
* ProfessionalKiller: On occasion.
* RedOniBlueOni: With Rie. Best seen in their reactions to Ender's vanishing, where Natalie starts destroying furniture and chewing out everybody.
* ShapeShifting
* TeleportersAndTransporters
* WhipSword: Natalieís Sceard blade is usually this. It gets around the issues by sacrificing flexibility (itís more bicycle chain than whip), and her powers allowing her to control it more precisely/repair it when itís damaged.

!Whelkshore Alliance
The Whelkshore Alliance are the at least semiofficial "main characters" of ORP and the go-to heroic group. They range from far-seeing idealists like Zebedee and Sly to more present-focused pragmatists like Natalie and Ender, but all share a basic understanding of the right thing to do and a drive to do it. Zebedee has two houses and Sly has a mansion in the same neighborhood in Whelkshore, so other members can often be found putting up there as tenants.

'''Zebedee Taylor''' (''Lee'')
* ABloodyMess: On several occasions, he's faked out opponents by stealing blood from blood banks. As he became more mature, he stopped using this trick and started using outright illusions.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: What with the blatantly Hebrew first name and technique names like "Kefitzat Haderech".
** WordOfGod actually sets him as a Seventh-day Adventist, which according to Lee is "pretty much a cross between Protestant Christianity and Judaism".
* BattleAura
* BeardOfSorrow
* BladeAcrossTheShoulder: With his racquet.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder
* BlowYouAway: Gabriel's Trumpet.
* CallingYourAttacks: A JustifiedTrope, since his powers are psychosomatic. The more pumped up he is, the better he can tap into his powers.
* CelibateHero
* DeadlyUpgrade: Full Holy Zebedee, at first. It's improved with time.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Inverted. He doesn't like being called "Lee", a pseudonym he went by for a few years. (A handwave to help detach a SelfInsert from the author.)
** After the CosmicRetcon, it turns out he never went by Lee in the first place.
* ElementalPunch
* TheFarmerAndTheViper: His most damning flaw- He'll continuously try to redeem a foe, even if it's obvious that they'll just take advantage of his mercy at their first opportunity.
* TheFettered
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Hebrew plus a little Latin and Aramaic for spells.
* HolyHalo: Other than his BattleAura, the only really noticable sign of his going into Full Holy mode.
* HolyHandGrenade
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Zebedee probably isn't any RP's "wackiest party member", but let's face it: he wields a tennis racquet.
* MultiMeleeMaster: A bladed racquet, a mace, and a holy "blade". Justified in that he can teleport weapons in when he needs them, so doesn't have to lug all the baggage around.
* RealMenLoveJesus
* SituationalSword: Zebedee's holy blade, the Maranatha, takes a toll him on him and deals damage proportional to the righteousness of his cause, and the need for him to use it. So naturally, it's a last resort weapon.
* StoicSpectacles
* ThemeDeck: Zebedee can pretty much do ''anything'' that involves the manipulation of matter or energy. However, he pretty much sticks to illusions, gusts of wind, and holy energy attacks. Justified somewhat in the nonlethality/selective lethality of his preferred tricks.
* WingedHumanoid: Subverted. Despite having an angelic motif, using several attacks with "Wings","Pinions", etc. in their names, and deriving his powers from a device disguised as a feather, he's never had even the illusion of wings.
