*UnreliableNarrator: As expected of a trickster. In the quote on the loading screen of his Secret [=Diary DLC=], he claims to have fooled Rune Warriors. Well, he didn't mention the part where the Rune Warriors caught him and handed him over to the leader of the local thieves' guild (in Empyria, during ''Shadow of the Phoenix'').


* PurelyAestheticGender: Played straight in ''The Breath of Winter'', but averted in ''Shadow of the Phoenix'' where it is revealed that the Shadow Warrior is a man. [[spoiler: The fact that he is portrayed as a masculine Shadow in ''Shadow Wars'' also seems to confirm it, though no one knows if there are women among the Shadows.]]

He can also become a party member in ''Faith in Destiny''.]]

A professor from the University of Sevenkeeps. Twiddle is an inventor and his inventions may hold the key to Eo's future. [[spoiler: Specifically, he is looking into ways on how to duplicate Eo's PortalNetwork without tapping into the Archfire.]]

*Archenemy: Dr Mauser, who dies soon after the Soul Carrier first met Twiddle, but his schemes would continue to haunt Twiddle throughout the campaigns.
*TimeTravel: His invention in ''Shadow Wars''. He even sets up a StableTimeLoop by [[spoiler: informing you of the ingredients needed to power his Timetwister when he first met you near the start of the campaign, so that you'll repeat the formula back to him near the end of the campaign.]]

A former Rune Warrior, they are the PlayerCharacter of ''Dragon Storm''. It is heavily implied that they are a companion of the Phoenix Guard and the Shadow Warrior, as the trinkets which are collected for the "Memories of Eo" side quest consist largely of items the Rune Warriors would have picked up during their travels throughout the three ''Spellforce 1'' campaigns. Yasha (daughter of Hokan Ashir) held their Rune Stone. [[spoiler: Like the Soul Carrier before her, she turned into a Dragon after the events of ''Dragon Storm'']].

* TitleDrop: ''Faith In Destiny'' refers to his faith in his own destiny, at at time where he is tormented by his nightmares. [[spoiler: As expected, being the Zazhut Liberator shook that faith pretty hard.]]

*PassingTheTorch: Not directly, but via a friend. [[spoiler: Should the Shaper Conqueress pass the test of the Dracon in '' Dragon Storm'', Craig would gift her a set of armour and his twin blades. Equipping the armour would reveal that the armour was the one worn by the Phoenix Guard as shown on the cover of ''Order''.]]



*RetiredBadass: By the time of ''2''. A merchant who appeared in ''Faith In Destiny'' didn't believe her when she said that she was the Phoenix Guard, or had with her a robe made by Tanara (the famed seamstress who appeared back in ''Order'').



Rohen is the stereotypical good old wizard and the last one of a group of powerful mages called ''The Circle''. He survived the [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Convocation ritual]] and tried to help the people to get back on their feet and founded the Order of Dawn. This is a group of knights intending to maintain order in the broken world. He is the one who summoned the Phoenix Guard into the world, thus beginning the story of ''Order''. [[spoiler: He gets killed by the Dark One in the middle of the story.]] He shares a strange connection with the [[BigBad Dark One]]. [[spoiler: In fact, he was the Dark One in his youth, and after reading the Convocation Book and learning about the futility of the Convocation ritual, he tried to stop his younger self.

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: After losing their Rune Warrior powers, they became a Shaikan, and kicked a lot of ass with Dragon blood flowing in their veins.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: They were a Rune Warrior in their own right, so it is likely that they had their own adventures other than those together with the Phoenix Guard/ Shadow Warrior. The trinkets which popped up at exotic locations support this.
* NoodleIncident: Exactly what the Former Rune Warrior was doing at the [[spoiler: Dragon refuge, where the last great dragons were hiding (and two trinkets were found)]] remains a mystery.
