** Gains an upgrade from * LimitBreak: After defeating the College of Satire's dean, Eloy learns Seismic Insult.Insult, which is a homebrew spell that is an ''immensely'' more powerful version of ''Vicious Mockery''. He [[GodzillaThreshold only used it once]], when faced with a potential TotalPartyKill.


** Assuming the Sharkbowl Ooze is like any other water-based critter, he used a shock dagger on it

to:

** Assuming the Sharkbowl Ooze is like any other water-based critter, he used a shock dagger on it, thinking it would do extra damage. It instead ''supercharged'' it, making it do far more damage than usual.

Added DiffLines:

* UncertainDoom: Zito has said clearly that as far as he's concerned, [[spoiler: all of the party members that went to Iburkal are dead.]] However, he concedes that as DM, he doesn't have absolute control over the player characters, so if Grant really wanted to, he could bring Ezra back.

!!Player CharactersCharacters - Natural Oneders



[[/folder]]

!!NPC Crew Members, living or dead
[[folder: ''Yeldin'' Crew Members]]
The crew the oneders sail with for most of Chapters 1, 2 and 3. A RagtagBunchOfMisfits with plenty of TeethClenchedTeamwork abound, but the crew manages to get things done.

!! The Crew as a whole provides examples of:
* PutOnABus: The entire crew arrangement in general was temporary, just in different ways. A consequence of joining the adventurer's guild in Rite is that ''everyone'' has to, so they all have to fill out spools of paperwork before they can rejoin the crew.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Some crewmembers like Wake and Redd barely get along, but when the chips are down they all manage to work together pretty well.

!!Grammy
--> "SECRET INGREDIEEEEEENT!"
Initially the creepy, ancient-looking chef and server of the ''Voltun''. She's taken a shine to the player characters, often giving them food and challenging them to discover her secret ingredients. Currently official cook of the ''Yeldin''.
----
* AccidentalMarriage: Though her idea of "marriage" is being the cook onboard the ''Yeldin'' and not bringing any direct harm to the crew, her wrapping sea-weed around Wake and Eloy's wrists apparently makes them her "husbands".
** She also has a much more adversarial relationship with Ezra not just because she weirds him out, but because they aren't "married"
* AmbiguouslyHuman: She may in fact be a Sea Hag. Nobody knows for sure. She apparently has functioning gills in her neck, though.
* AutobotsRockOut: Plays a mean guitar solo finale of the One-ders' makeshift show for the Navy that Zito can only describe as "the best rendition of Freebird out there"
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Chapter 3 shows some signs that Grammy does actually care about the group; when [[spoiler:she finds out that Gulfurr is dead]], Zito says that she's legitimately upset and in the next episode she tries to comfort Wake over his feeling responsible for what happened.
** In Chapter 3, Episode 8, Risf reveals that she gives him hot chocolate whenever he feels like it because of his condition.
* BerserkButton: Do NOT mention what the secret ingredient is to anyone who hasn't had the soup.
* BizarreAlienBiology: When she gets accidentally hit by a thrown cannonball, she bleeds green, removes part of her spine without long-term damage, and recovers by absorbing metal shavings.
* BreakoutCharacter: Was written by Zito as a one-off character, but became very popular with both players and fans, resulting in her making several reappearances and eventually being hired by the party as the cook aboard ''Yeldin''.
* CatchPhrase: "Secret ingredient!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She acts bizzare and is clearly unhinged. For example, she chained herself to the floor and claims she's being held there against her will.
* CordonBleughChef: Her meals are not awful but their main ingredients, [[spoiler: seagull and pufferfish, respectively]], leave a lot to be desired.
** Goes the extra step beyond by [[spoiler: using Pistachio the Tabaxi as an ingredient in a Stew.]]
** MasochistsMeal: The pie she offers the boys in her reappearance? [[spoiler: It's made from pufferfish]]. Wake's lucky to bypass the poison and even constitution-wise benefit from it, as does Skrung. Ezra and Eloy get really bad heartburn instead.
** Later, she makes Eloy some tomato, healing potion (with broke bits of the bottle still in it), and [[spoiler:mandrake]] soup. It's good, but the screaming is a bit off-putting.
* ExpansionPackPast: In Chapter 2 episode 11, she reveals she worked as a roadie for a band in the past (naturally, the Secret Ingredients), and helps set up Eloy's stage with great skill.
* HorrifyingTheHorror: Her presence gives pause to various beings of great power, including Dagon's sword, which houses the essence of an EldritchAbomination.
* GuardianEntity: The fluff for Eloy's Counter Spell is Grammy appearing out of his Shadow to absorb the spell. Eloy has also used Grammy's name as his Healing Word when unable to use his flute, and she appeared from the wall behind him when he cast a fear spell under the same circumstances. This prompts Lani to claim that Grammy has become Eloy's [[Anime/JojosBizareAdventure Stand]].
* MadeASlave: Subverted. She isn't [[CloudCuckoolander despite her insistence to the contrary.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Nobody seems to even know what her real name is.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In Chapter 3 Episode 1, she outright refuses to cook the torpedo snails infesting the ship and asks Ezra if he's out of his mind for suggesting it. When Ezra expresses surprise at the idea of Grammy being wary of something, she explains that there are plenty of things in the sea to be wary of: some you fear, some you respect, and some (like the snails) you just straight-up revile.
* PetTheDog: Almost literally; the group picked up a dog on Bulkard and Grammy takes a real shine to it, carrying it around with her on the ''Yeldin''. When the group worries that she's going to cook it, she gets defensive and says "Dogs are for companionship, not cooking!"
* RuleOfFunny: Why does she cook such weird things? Why is her biology the way it is? How does she utilise OffscreenTeleportation so well? How can she end the talent show with a stunning rendition of Freebird in a universe where neither Music/LynyrdSkynyrd or electric guitars exist? Because it's funny!
* SpeakOfTheDevil: Has an uncanny ability to either appear or be heard just offscreen whenever she or her secret ingredients are mentioned. Zito remarks with humor that nobody questions this. Best {{Lampshaded}} by Eloy to Onslow when, [[ItMakesSenseInContext after the gator man has accidentally earned Grammy's ire and is cowering as he hides from her]], he has this to say to [[SarcasmMode comfort]] him:
->'''Eloy, ever so cheerfully:''' Onslow, you know there's nowhere to hide! She's everywhere!
->(''Zito-as-Onslow further grimaces in utter fear.'')
* ToServeMan: Makes no bones about the fact that she has no problem cooking sapient creatures, and even suggests she's willing to commit murder to improve her cooking. However, she draws the line at cute puppies.

!!Skrung/[[spoiler:Denzel Balphorquim]]
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skrungresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Do you have leads? DO YOU HAVE LEADS!?"]]

A perpetually angry goblin first encountered by the team aboard the ''Voltun'' in Episode 1. He butts heads often with the player characters, and seems to be hiding some sort of secret.
----
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: In Episode 8 he mocks Ezra [[IShouldWriteABookAboutThis writing the crew's exploits with the intent of turning them into plays]], saying that it'll work as long as it's "all the lies." When Ezra replies by jotting down "And Skrung was helpful", Skrung concedes the point and doesn't even get angry like he usually does when the guys mock him.
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:In Chapter 2 Episode 18, the group finds out that while they were in the Unwitnessed Kingdom, Skrung lost his right hand when a gremlin made his magic gun explode. Ezra suggested getting a mechanical arm with a built-in gun to replace it, and Skrung is actually down with the idea.]]
* BizarreTasteInFood: At Rite, he's shown to frequently down a concoction containing a mixture of coffee, alcohol, and cigarettes, which he says "gives it texture". [[ForeignQueasine Apparently a goblin thing]] as Mr. Large, a bugbear in the same company, is shown to enjoy cigarettes as flavoring.
* BrilliantButLazy: Skrung can actually make for a pretty good entertainer when he's properly motivated...the problem is that A): he has a nasty personality and B): he's so motivated by ''one'' thing that it's near impossible for the crew to actually get him to do it. Wake finally gets him to do some performing by bribing him with an item.
* ButtMonkey: Episode 2 starts off with him in handcuffs and a baby leash. When released from the leash, he lunges for Ezra after he made a quip, only to crash face-first into a globe.
* DrowningMySorrows: After [[spoiler: Gulfurr's death and being briefly kidnapped]], he spends the rest of the following day drinking terrifying amounts of whiskey.
* FireForgedFriends: Skrung becomes this to the main trip and the rest of the One-ders following their Jahal Cove and Southern Island adventures. He still finds amusement at the others' expense, but he does freely work alongside them.
* TheHomewardJourney: [[spoiler: It turns out Skrung has been on one of these for a ''very'' long time. His portal ring, which is the only way he can go back to the Goblin Kingdom, was stolen by a Redcap. Since they're attuned to individuals and stealing one from another goblin wouldn't work, his only hope is tracking down that redcap and taking the ring back. He has poured billions of gold into this with no avail.]]
* KingIncognito: [[spoiler: Discussed. In episode 8, it's mentioned that Skrung bears a resemblance to the Goblin King. The group questions whether he might be a prince, or the king himself in disguise, but it ultimately get dropped as other topics arise. For his part Skrung denies it, asking why royalty would be mucking around doing shitty odd-jobs.]]
** [[spoiler: He turns out to actually be the forgotten prince -- [[NotHyperbole literally forgotten]] since his father is so senile and easily manipulated that he doesn't recognize his own son without the signet ring that identifies him.]]
** [[spoiler:Not "Incognito" so much after Chapter 2 Session 12, where Mr. Lott of the Fine Day Boardwalk Co. blatantly and casually spills the beans in front of the group.]]
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It's established in episode 8 that goblins often carry magic tools they can use to open portals so they can pull [[StealthHiBye Stealth Hi/Byes]]. It's discussed this may be how Skrung can stealthily exit situtations, but when asked point-blank he denies it. [[spoiler: It turns out Skrung's lack of a portal ring is a major issue for him.]]
* MasterActor: As "Skrungliacci", he actually does genuinely impressive and screamingly hilarious stunts and clown gags.
* GaggingOnYourWords: Though he does find common ground with Wake over the crate of gold they loot from the naval camp, at Eloy and Ezra's egging, it is near Sisyphean for him to blurt out the word "friend", only barely getting it out after a LastSecondWordSwap from saying "fuck". Wake doesn't really mind, either way.
* HandCannon: His preferred weapon type.
** MageMarksman: He can infuse the bullets with homing ProjectileSpell properties.
* JerkAss: Skrung from the get-go is a dick to just about every other character.
** JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler:When his backstory is revealed, his sour attitude becomes much more understandable. He's the son of the Goblin King, but is exiled and literally forgotten because his birthright was stolen by a redcap, he [[YouCantGoHomeAgain can't go home again]] until he gets his ring back, and has sunk literally billions of gold pieces trying to do so only for every single attempt to fail. And at the end of Chapter 2, he loses his right hand while fighting a Gremlin, just to compound things]].
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In this case, the party encounter his nemesis, the redcap Grosswort, learn his backstory when said foe escapes, and talk him into joining their crew for lack of any better options.
* SadClown: The party keep pushing for him to adopt this persona as part of their traveling show, out-of-character comparing him to ''Theatre/{{Pagliacci}}''. He accepts with considerable reluctance. [[spoiler: It helps that like the trope entails, beneath his outward persona is a genuinely depressed person]].
** In chapter 3, he's motivated to actually take on the persona of "Skrungliacci".
* SoProudOfYou: Eloy's flashback reveals that he felt this at the end of the former's TrainingFromHell, where Skrung hurled all kinds of abuse at him, by actually getting up and taking the centaur's hand and proudly proclaiming "You're ready!"
* StealthExpert: Has a tendency to disappear from situations without a trace. This is later exploited to enter a navy encampment.
* TheStoner: Drinking alcohol and smoking are some of the few pleasures he has left. At the end of Chapter 2, Onslow, Gulfur and Pliskin give him some of Yt's psychotropic secretions [[spoiler:to deal with the pain from his missing hand]], but he had it soaked into his cigarettes and it turns out that the heat dulls the effects.
* TheNapoleon: Short? He's a goblin so yeah. Mean? Even moreso.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Aside from Eloy, everybody seems to tolerate him at best. Not that he likes them at all either. [[spoiler: As they learn his backstory, especially Wake, they start to come around. He in turn at least seems to form some level of friendship and camaraderie with Wake following the Southern Island quest. Completely averted by the end of Chapter 2, when the entire crew start pitching in to help him with the loss of his right arm, even if through what about amounts to drug and drug-making experimentation]].
* TookALevelInKindness: Not by a lot, but he is less antagonistic and standoffish with the party upon setting sail. He still barbs at them for his own amusement, but he has at least become FireForgedFriends with a side of VitriolicBestBuds with the main crew. It helps that, [[spoiler: they, especially Wake, have agreed to help him in his quest, especially after Eloy fumbling it up]]. Lampshaded by Wake:
--> '''Wake''' (after Skrung ribs at him): I thought we were cool!
** In Chapter 3 Episode 13, Skrung is a lot mellower than he has been in a long time thanks in part to the group finally getting a solid lead for him, and he actually apologizes for being so rude in the past, saying that he appreciates everything they've done to help him. He still struggles to call Ezra and Eloy his friends, though, remarking that it feels like he's swearing in Goblin.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He struck a deal with Orc pirates, knows his way around the underdark, and is all around an antagonistic person. [[spoiler: He isn't as bad as he lets himself out to be and is overall a JerkassWoobie at worst, and he does mellow out slightly as he travels with the party]].
* YouNeedToGetLaid: After getting to visit a brothel in Chapter 2 Episode 8 he's far mellower than he has been at any other point in the campaign, even being straight-up friendly with Ezra.

!!Risf
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/risfresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Oh dear..."]]

A kobold of faith encountered by the team aboard the Voltun in Episode 1. He's one of the nicest people in the group, and seems to like just about everyone. He's also an interdimensional alien with ambitions of the cosmic variety. Served as physician on the ''Yeldin''.
----
* AbsurdPhobia: Risf's fear of demons is understandable, considering his religious background. His fear of the Infernal language, which is just a dialect with no inherently evil qualities, is less so.
* ActualPacifist: Not the least bit comfortable with the more violent options his comrades pick.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler: His endgame. Risf's worship of every god is a result of an all-consuming fascination with the origin and true nature of these higher beings. He hopes his "hobby" will ultimately result in a way for him to ascend to godhood himself.]]
* BadLiar: When Wake asks him about the location of the Staff of Holy Fire that was looted, he tensed up and spouted some pretty obvious lies. It's justified because he thought Wake would be mad he got rid of it.
* BlessedWithSuck / CursedWithAwesome: All a matter of perspective, really. [[spoiler: After an encounter with a bodak that left him [[OnlyMostlyDead clinically dead for three hours]], he came back with one red eye and unable to feel half his body. That's the "suck" part of the equation; the good part is half his scales are now black, which is the color of the kobold priest caste, and during his experience he communed with the god of death, so Risf considers the whole experience getting one step closer to his eventual goal of becoming a god.]]
* CameBackWrong: He survived nearly having his soul sucked out by a bodak, but he was definitely ''changed'' by the experience. Half his body turned coal black, and instead of healing people on that side of his body, he deals necrotic damage.
* CreepyGood: Is a genuinely kindhearted and pleasant person, aside from the whole, [[spoiler:"I want to be a god" thing.]]
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: When he is near death, the God of Death offers to make him his acolyte, and Risf denies him to his face, which results in the God of Death cursing him.
--> '''Risf''': I put fear into a God.
** Slightly downplayed, because he said "Heck off".
* DivineConflict: Since many gods oppose eachother, it's made clear on several occasions that Risf worshiping all of them is ''not'' a good idea.
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: Played with. Most clerics and paladins know the specific details of exactly which deity grants them their power. However, since Risf worships every god, he has ''no idea where his magic comes from.''
* FacialMarkings: Has strange tatoos one the left side of his face. They even run down his arm.
* GoldenMeanFallacy: Risf worships and tithes to every single deity known within the setting because he doesn't want to offend any of them by playing favorites. The problem is that like any pantheon, there are some who don't get along (like Salima and Brookalina, goddesses of summer and winter respectively) so he's metaphorically shooting himself in the foot. The players have remarked on this every once in a while.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Never swears, to the point where he considers the word "Heck" a swear.
* HealingHands: His religious knowledge allows him to use clerical healing powers, though he knows not which god they stem form as he worships all of them. These come in handy aboard the Mantaruva, as he cures both himself and Ezra of vampiric infection. [[spoiler: After he's cursed, if he tries to heal with his cursed half, then he risks tearing out the soul of the person he was trying to heal.]]
* HealingHerb: Mixes these up for Pliskin to help with his...condition.
* HolyHandGrenade: [[spoiler: After the IJustShotMarvinInTheFace moment below, and horrified at what his panicked shot caused, Risf casts Bless on the cannon and prays his damnest to any god that could bless his next shot so that it hits true this time and not hurt any of his own allies again. The resulting cannonball not only hits true, it explodes in a blast of holy light, practically taking out the entire wave in one go]].
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: After getting a good shot with a cannon during a siege and blocking off the enemy's advance, he decided to turn the canon around so they could focus fire on the other side of the building. However, after getting rattled by Carble's sonic attack, he confusedly lit the canon's fuse ''before'' turning it around, resulting in him destroying a corner of their stronghold and critically injuring Calliope, though she gets better soon after.
* NearDeathExperience: [[spoiler: Almost gets his soul devoured by a bodak, and winds up clinically dead for about three hours.]]
* OhCrap: Has this reaction when Wake, in the middle of an adventure, points out that night is falling and they've lost track of Pliskin, who [[spoiler: will be supernaturally called to enter the ocean and transform into a Wereshark]].
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In this case, Eloy talks him into joining their crew after asking him about the gods, and offering the chance to learn more about them and see the world. He comes as a unit with Pliskin.
* TeamMom: Risf does everything he can to keep people comfortable and behaving. He even tries to ease the tension between Skrung and the player characters, even though it doesn't work out great.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: [[spoiler: Risf isn't from Kelpie's realm, where the campaign is set. He originates from a different planet governed by a different god, but he went through a [[OneWayTrip one-way portal]] and wound up in Kelpie's realm. Thankfully, he found the experience enlightening rather than terrifying.]]
* TurnUndead: Proves able to do this with his [[ReviveKillsZombie healing powers]], even turning a zombie to dust with a touch, to great approval from the rest of the party.
* NiceGuy: He's first seen offering to ease Eloy's discomfort at sea, and has yet to do anything antagonistic to anybody.
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: He has the long ears associated with Zito's kobold characters.
* TokenReligiousTeammate: He's not the only man of faith in the campaign, but he has the unique quirk of showing reverence to ''every'' god in the pantheon, something not reccommended by The Collective. This makes him quantifiably the most religious.
* TouchedByVorlons: During a near-death experience, he meets and (politely) defies Vexkor, the God of Death, resulting in a curse that turns him half-black and gives him necromantic powers.
* WhiteMage: Risf is established early on as a religiously-inclined magic user. Zito later clarifies that he specializes in healing magic.

!!Pliskin Hark
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pliskinresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "I dunno, Cap'n. Did you try pulling up the Anchor?"]]


A pirate first encountered by the team as security on the Voltun in Episode 1. He's ex-navy, but little else is known about him. Served as the helmsman on the ''Yeldin''.
----
* AllThereInTheManual: His last name was stated in the TFS Discord server alongside his official artwork.
* BerserkButton: Takes offense to Wake's insinuation of pirates pillaging villages. Ezra manages to defuse the two before they break into an argument.
** Don't be stupid enough to mention that he's a wereshark. He was seconds away from shooting ''Eloy'' when he mentioned it outloud a month or two into their journey in a crowded bar.
* TheCharmer: Displays a bit of this when talking to Edward Caster's CuteClumsyGirl receptionist, who is clearly enamored with his roguish charisma.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Is introduced explaining that Grammy is ''not'' being held against her will, and shouldn't be taken seriously.
* TheGenericGuy: [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Mysterious curses]] aside, he's unfortunately had very little to do throughout the first two chapters other than being an extra hand in combat, and tends to get forgotten about by the players and audience. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in the Chapter 3 recap's description of the ''Yeldin'''s crew - the other characters all get some flowery description, followed by a blunt [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg "and a guy called Pliskin."]]
* IAteWhat: Is noticably disgusted by the "secret ingedient" in Grammy's Chicken Noodle Soup. [[spoiler: It's Seagull.]]
* TheInsomniac: He's noted to look like he badly needs sleep. Definitely and moreso after the main party returns from the Southern Islands. [[spoiler: Not only is that because what was a few hours for the trio and Naval officers were a week to everyone else, he can't exactly afford to sleep when he can't control his transformations]].
** He finally points out a much more practical reason he looks like this in Chapter 3: The crew never assigned night watch duties, so he usually ended up doing it.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In this case, Ezra learns his backstory, convinces him that talking with a merman such as Wake offers the best chance of uncovering the truth of his condition, and hires him for the crew on the basis that he has the most actual seafaring experience of everyone available.
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: It turns out there's more to him with what he tells Ezra, as he drops hints that he may be some sort of weremerman should he ever [[InvoluntaryShapeshifter step into water. Risf is actually his constant companion to keep him from transforming]]. [[spoiler:Chapter 2 Session 6 finally reveals the nature of his curse: He's a [[SharkMan were-shark]].]]
* TokenHuman: Downplayed. "Redd" is human too, but she has a talent in magic and espionage. Pliskin is the only person on the scout team who fits the descriptor of "regular dude." This means that he tends to be overlooked by the party when choosing companions for certain quests, which often has Zito remind them that he's there and even a thing.

!!"Redd"
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reddresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "My work is to be held to the utmost secrecy. Got it?"]]

A human spy with magical abilities. She's on the run from the Navy, and is carrying documents that she's willing to protect with her life. Served as Quartermaster on the ''Yeldin''. We learn more about her in Chapter 2, as she's revealed to be a member of a controversial Vampire Hunting clan known as the Volition.

In Chapter 3, Redd leaves the crew as she's more tied to the Volition's activity than she is to the Oneders.
----
* BadassLongcoat: Zito mentions her wearing one in Episode 1.
* BerserkButton: The two big ones seem to be losing her research notes, and the Ashdrake vampire hunter family. Wake seems determined to press every single one she has, however unintentionally.
-->'''Lani:''' My dice fucking HATE Redd!
* ButtMonkey: Chapter 3 hasn't been kind to Redd, with her getting badly injured in several early sessions. In Episode 6 when she offers to go ashore with the group, Wake outright tells her that after everything she's been through lately, she deserves a day off.
* ClassifiedInformation: Only she knows whatever's written in those documents, and nobody else is allowed to read them.
* {{Claustrophobia}}: The group finds out that she has this in Chapter 2 Episode 13 -- and yet she agreed to go on a mission that required her to use a diving bell.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Redd's magic is almost entirely based on fire. She's good in a fight, but practically useless in any other matter that doesn't involve battle.
* DisapprovingLook: Shoots one at Eloy in Episode 6 for his continued ignorance and/or denial of his music OBVIOUSLY being magic[[note]]Eloy was demonstrating what he believes is his ability to attract will-o-wisps with his music, despite the fact that, as Onslow reminds them, that will-o-wisps only come out at night and yet it's midday at that point. Eloy instead believes and insists that his music still attracted them and nothing more, despite the time of the day and Wake's elemental affinities not working on the "will-o-wisp". At which point, "Redd" looks at Eloy like he's an idiot.[[/note]].
* GenerationXerox: She's the spitting image of her mother.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: This is her reaction to the group's antics at the boardwalk.
* NotHyperbole: [[spoiler:In Chapter 2 Session 15, she explains that when she said her research notes were her life, she ''wasn't'' exaggerating -- if she doesn't bring the notes to her superiors, they'll have her killed. Barabus, who's a member of the same organization, confirms this and adds that they'd more than likely order him to do the deed.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: Has her moments. Sometimes, it's as subtle as cracking a lighthearted joke when Eloy admits his deep-seated animosity towards cervine centaurs is his "baggage to carry", and accepting the high-five Eloy offers from that joke. Other times, she enters a ForScience mode when observing and noting down wolves getting devoured by giant spiders, even as her companions make it clear they would rather be anywhere else.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, she was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In her case, Wake learns her backstory and she requests the party take her along to help her stay undercover.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Just "Redd" as far as the others care, and she's not keen on the idea of sharing her real name.
* OnlySaneMan: Whenever she's part of the immediate party, chances are one of the trio is going to do something silly, intentionally or not, and one can expect "Redd" to provide the metaphorical facepalm at the resulting shenanigans.
* PlayingWithFire: Her magic allows her to use this...and it appears to be the only thing she's good for as far as she's concerned.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Well, no mention of her eye color is made but her red hair is one of her more striking physical features.
* TheSmartGuy: Usually the first one the crew will turn to for questions about arcane matters.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: When she comes face-to-face with the [[spoiler: youngest member of the paranormal-investigating Ashdrake Clan, Rock,]] she expresses discomfort during the whole meeting, and when Ezra unintentionally pries, she reluctantly explains to him that she cannot stand [[spoiler: Rock's more glory-hogging and vainglorious older brothers]], but will tolerate working with the clearly more honest and well-intentioned younger Ashdrake while they're stuck on a vampire-infested ship.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Despite being incredibly suspicious and outright admitting to being a spy, none of the player characters seem to care about what her classified documents say.
* VampireHunter: Turns out this is her schtick, and it's getting tailed by some vampires that led her to try to lay low in Jahal Cove. She later admits that the crew of the ''Mantaruva'' was trying to find her.

!!Onslow Green
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/onslow.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "I ain't ever killed one of you before, son."]]

A rotund alligator man with a reputation as an expert hunter. Served as gunnery chief on the ''Yeldin''.
----
* BalefulPolymorph: Gets turned into a (very fat) deer by a Wendigo's curse due to carelessly shooting two of the deer on its island. Later, when he gets "harvested" by the Wendigo, he turns into a regular-sized bean, albeit a scaly green one. Like Wake, he gets better.
* BerserkButton: Cletus. As his rival, Cletus knows all of Onslow's buttons and pushes them constantly.
* BloodKnight: Onslow loves him the thrill of the hunt. The bigger the game, the better he feels, and he's never happier in any situation than he is when he has the chance to kill something.
* {{BFG}}: Has a Blunderbuss that's as big as he is.
* CheshireCatGrin: Gets one in Episode 8 when Wake offers him one of Nedra's trophies: [[spoiler:Old Young Cletus' severed arm]].
* CowerPower: He is ''terrified'' of Grammy.
* DeepSouth: Speaks in a laid back southern drawl.
* FatAndSkinny: He's much larger than Old Young Cletus, his primary hunting rival. As a matter of fact...he's probably much larger than the rest of the lizardfolk 'round his neck of the woods.
* FireForgedFriends: Seems to have become much better friends with the three heroes after [[spoiler: the four of them kill the Abyssal Man-Maw. Out of Character, Zito flat out states that hunting the Man-Maw was Onslow's LoyaltyMission.]]
* FullNameBasis: He insists upon being called by his full name, and will get offended if you just call him "Onslow", "Mr. Green", or the like. Although, once the party manages to befriend him, they are able to call him just Onslow without any repercussions.
* HiddenDepths: He's one heck of a banjo player.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: He has a human head among his hunting trophies.
* GreatWhiteHunter: Great Green Hunter, actually.
* ImAHumanitarian: Remarks that he's eaten human flesh before. The fact that he's got a human head on his trophy wall lends credence to this. Though thankfully he said he thought it tasted bad.
* LizardFolk: He and the rest of his village are a race of humanoid alligators.
* MadeOfIron: Shrugs off getting accidentally shot in the back by Ezra, saying he thought it was a mosquito.
** Averted in Episode 5, which proves that Onslow is ''not'' indestructible.
--> '''Zito:''' I don't want to kill Onslow.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable if the right sidequest was undertaken. In his case, the hunt for the vicious Man-Maw endears him to the party, and he ends up joining their crew.
* StoutStrength: He's enormous, and tough as nails. As a male gator, his sheer girth is a source of pride for him, such that he finds Wake's suggestion of going on a diet during their phase of being turned into deer for him to go on a diet offensive.
** Speaking of his deer phase, his fatness backfires on him as the sheer fat upon being turned into a mammal makes it difficult to breathe.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: He finds [[spoiler: Viktor]]'s intention to [[spoiler: harvest his people's organs for extra materials]] to be, in his words, "rude." However, he finds the effect the experiments had on his prized hunt, the Manmaw, to be ''utterly unforgivable.''
* TranquilFury: Episode 5 sees Onslow get truly angry for the first time in the campaign. He loses all his jovial attributes and goes full gator, complete with a low growl. Wake, Ezra and Eloy find it terrifying.
** Revisited in Chapter 2, Episode 5 when he's transformed into a deer. In a completely level voice, he informs Wake that he hates everything about this and fully intends to kill and devour every living thing on the island once cured.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Onslow demonstrates full ability to make use of his girth when, in Episode 6 of Chapter 3, he takes a gargantuan ''Dire Tiger'' by the neck, hoists it over his head, and ''piledrives it.''

!!Nedra
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nedraresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Are we fighting now?"]]

A 9-foot tall Tiefling Barbarian who stood as the champion of the fighting pit at the boardwalk. She loves a good fight more than anything, and is incredibly friendly underneath her fierce exterior. Was adopted as Wake's apprentice, and served as chief security on the ''Yeldin''.

After a tough loss and HeroicBSOD, Wake convinces her to find a cause to fight for, and she is now classed as a Fighter, who will begin taking Monk levels as she levels up.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:The Grungs cut off part of her tail when they tried to capture her, but since the party retrieved it Risf was able to reattach it with healing magic. During one fan art session Zito jokingly said that in his mind, the severed portions is now reattached with medical staples.]]
* AndCallHimGeorge: She has a hard time grasping the concept of petting, since she thought it was another word for punching. So when she tries to cuddle Wake's new deer form at the end of Chapter 2 Episode 5, it doesn't go well for him. She gets better at this over time.
* BigEater: Mr.Theraday says that she eats 5 times her weight and doesn't gain a pound.
* BloodKnight: Nedra loves fighting to the point where she only considers people friends if she can punch them. She at least ''tries'' not to kill people though. [[spoiler:However, even she's smart enough not to pick a fight with Gore in his dragon form.]]
* BoisterousBruiser: She's big, she's nice, and she's a terror in a fight.
* BreakoutCharacter: She was introduced as an OptionalPartyMember, same as the other [=NPCs=] on the Yeldin. Since then, she's gotten increasingly more important to the characters and plot. Taken UpToEleven in the fan art, where she's more or less treated as a 4th main character.
* BrokenBird: Downplayed. While she's not openly depressed about it, she had come to accept that she gets passed around between pirate crews like clockwork, waiting for when they eventually hand her off to someone else. As such, when shown actual kindness and loyalty by the main trio, she comes to actually bond with them, viewing them like surrogate brothers rather than her handlers. Naturally, she's most attached to Wake.
* CarryABigStick: In Episode 7 of Chapter 2, Wake commissions a Kanabō for her.
* ChairmanOfTheBrawl: When Wake sucker-punches Theraday to the ground, She excitedly brandishes a chair.
-->'''Nedra:''' Are we fighting now?
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:While Wake had been trying all along to mold Nedra into a more focused fighter, it wasn't until she lost to Barabus that the lesson finally started to sink in. While she was going through a HeroicBSOD afterwards, Wake consoled her by saying that he didn't start winning battles until he found something to fight for other than "to get stronger". Thanks to Lani's convincing speech (and rolling a Natural 20), Zito explained that Nedra would be changing from a Barbarian to a Fighter and any levels she gained in the future would be as a Monk.]]
* CreepyChild: According to Zito, she's 15 years old. His instructions to the artist were "the girl from ''Film/TheRing'' on pixie sticks."
* DefeatEqualsFriendship: Downplayed. In Nedra's mind, ''fighting'' equals friendship. She took a shine to Wake because he was a good opponent. Being able to best her was icing on the cake.
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: Has difficulty keeping her strength in check, mainly because she has a hard time understanding that harming other creatures is bad. The entire crew help her work on this point, and by the time they visit a zoo, she manages to avoid killing anything save a leech on a particular bat.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Though Wake has to keep reminding her that animals are far less tough than she is, she's ecstatic to meet animals in the zoo and pet them, even being overjoyed to have "Yt" hang out around her.
* GenkiGirl: She's perpetually upbeat and excitable, even at her most violent.
* HearingVoices: According to Nedra she hears a voice in her head that seems to want her to embrace her demonic heritage, such as pushing her to be violent and destructive and [[spoiler:telling her that she lost to Barabus was because she didn't listen, and would continue to lose as long as she tried to fight who she "really is". [[CharacterDevelopment Her subsequent heart-to-heart with Wake]] helped her to start getting over this.]]
* HopelessBossFight: She was actually meant to win her match against Wake, the idea being that she would respect his strength and he'd have a chance to recruit her with the right persuasion. Instead, Wake won by a combination of unusually good rolls on Lani's part, unusually bad rolls on Zito's part, and some bardic aid from Eloy during the fight. As such, she now more or less follows him around like a lost puppy.
* HornedHumanoid: She has curved horns protruding from her forehead. They add an extra foot to her total height!
* IncendiaryExponent: She intentionally lights her hand on fire during her fight with Wake.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Has come to view the main three has surrogate brothers, especially Wake.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: It turns out that Nedra's father [[spoiler: is a Balor demon- specifically, the BigBad behind [[GreatOffscreenWar the Onrush]].]]
* NoSocialSkills: She was raised by a series of guardians who viewed her as either a highly dangerous liability or a potential weapon; as such, she has no formal education and almost no socialization, being unfamiliar with any kind of social interaction that doesn't involve punching.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, she was written to be recruitable if the right sidequest was undertaken. In this case, Wake won (barely) a cage match against her, securing her loyalty.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: More than what comes of being a Tiefling, according to fellow Tiefling Harros. [[spoiler: She has Demon heritage. POWERFUL Demon heritage.]]
* PlayingWithFire: She has the tiefling-standard fire abilities. The boardwalk provided an oil pit in the arena for her to utilize in fights.
* [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]]: Downplayed, justified and also played for laughs: She comes across like an extremely sheltered six year old...in the body of a 9 foot tall gladiator whose entire worldview revolves around fighting. However, she's only 15 years old (roughly equivalent to a 13-year-old human girl), so the immaturity is warranted somewhat. [[spoiler: Harros, however, seems to dispute that it's less the age that's the cause of her demeanor and more of her unusual Tiefling heritage, which is shown in Chapter 3 where it seems like a different entity briefly overtook her]].
* SlasherSmile: One of her most defining features is a manic smile.
* SucksAtDancing: Her style of dancing is best described as "punching the ground with her legs."
* SweetTooth: She loves cotton candy. Eloy buying multiple bags of it to share caused Nedra to declare him her best friend.
* UnskilledButStrong: As a barbarian brawler she's all power and no technique; this is largely the reason Wake was able to beat her in the arena. In Episode 8 he offers to train her in the martial arts, and after demonstrating (with a tree) how much more effective precision is than just raw strength, she readily agreed.
** It also was some part of how she lost against Barabus, losing control of herself and giving him time to strike her in a weak spot.
* UnstoppableRage: She has the barbarian rage ability, making her stronger and reducing the damage she takes. She ''can'' be stopped in this state, but it's one hell of a task.
* WorthyOpponent: Bulkard's fight pit champion [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Barabus Bonebite]] considers her this. [[spoiler: Though she lost, being the first person to actually knock him down in a long time makes her this.]]
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: The subject of one. [[spoiler: The Grand Design pirates have been shuffling Nedra around between their various groups so that by the time [[EvilOverlord her father]] can pin down her location, she's already been moved somewhere else. For this reason, Captain Lot is all too happy that the Oneders took Nedra off his hands, as Nedra travelling around with a random group of privateers/entertainers is going to make it that much harder for her father to track her down. Goes another step further by essentially dropping off the grid by entering a monastary.]]

!! "Yt" the Fairy Dragon
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yt.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:250: Art by [=@SageGreenKat=] on Twitter.]]
A cat-sized dragon from the [[FairFolk Feywilds]] that was bothering the Purple Worm in the Bulkard Zoo. The crew decides to take it with them as their pet after it shows itself to be both harmless and adorable.
----
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Yt has a very striking, psychedelic color scheme.
* AmbiguousGender: Hasn't a clue what that means.
* AscendedFanon: Yt previously didn't have a nailed down design. a fan by the name of [=@SageGreenKat=] drew a fantastic rendition of him that Zito essentially declared canon the minute he saw it.
* CutenessProximity: Everyone immediately warms up to Yt due to it's childlike nature.
* KillerRabbit: A fey spirit reveals to Eloy and Wake that Fairy Dragons [[spoiler:can shapeshift their size, implying that Yt might only be his small size by choice. Also, he's apparently ''terrifyingly'' deadly.]]
* MathematiciansAnswer: Yt's name is pronounced as the word "it", which immediately creates confusion upon the crew announcing they figured out that Yt was the problem.
* MushroomSamba: Is revealed to be living in one of these ''all the time''.
--> '''Yt, calm as a cucumber''': Every day is a good day with a bowl of Lucky Charms.
* NotSoHarmless: Not seen, but [[spoiler:apparently he can face ''gods'' with little trouble.]] Anyone who knows ''anything'' about Fairy Dragons is terrified of him.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Fairy Dragons are ''weird.'' The crew over time finds out that:
** If bothered, they secrete a special hallucinogen that, among other things, can completely tongue-tie someone, make them speak languages they don't know and sincerely warp their understanding of reality.
** If injured enough to break the skin, Yt's body produces a welt over the wound...which then pops into confetti, completely healed.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Look at him!
* TheStoner: In Chapter 2 Episode 18, the group finds out that honey has hallucinogenic effects on him. [[spoiler:They discover this after he accidentally causes Eloy to experience the same thing, including seeing Grammy as a beautiful mermaid.]]
* SweetTooth: Eats magic...and sweet things. Later on it's learned it's because he converts the sugar into fey magic. Yt takes special pleasure in the honey from Ezra's jar because he can convert it more easily.
* TeamPet
* ToadLicking: The crew begins to treat Yt as more like a portable Ecstasy dispenser [[spoiler: when they find out the effects of his self-defense.]]
* YouNoTakeCandle: Speaks like this as it has intelligence around that of a small child. Though it has moments of lucidity occasionally.

[[folder: The ''Deram's Folly'' Crew]]
In Chapter 3, the Oneders join the Adventurer's guild, which means everyone in the previous ''Yeldin'' Crew has to fill out the paper work to join and were PutOnABus as the ''Yeldin'' went to it's final fate. To ease this, Ezra could hire eight people to fill various roles on their new ship, the ''Deram's Folly''.

!! The Crew as a whole provides examples of:
* ADayInTheLimelight: The Fortune Tides Company, and thus, the crew change, was [[InvokedTrope invoked]] by Zito to ensure that the supporting cast could get equal opportunity at focus and characterization. As he puts it, it's to prevent "[[OutOfFocus another Pliskin]]"

!!Franc Mocean
A large hobgoblin who works a crêperie in Rite. He's recruited by Ezra in Chapter 3 (With Grammy's blessing) to join the crew as the new cook.
----
* BigFun: An enormous goblinoid whose only real desire in life is to make crepes with exciting new ingredients.
* ButtMonkey: Is frequently at the end of many unfortunate kitchen mishaps while he makes food.
* FriendToAllChildren: Is introduced handing out crepes to children.
* ImpossiblyDeliciousFood: His crepes are so good they give out temporary stat bonuses. they're so good he's able to impress ''Grammy''.
* PunnyName: His name is just a barely concealed Music/FrankOcean send up.
* TooDumbToLive: Brushes off the crew's very real concerns about hiring him on due to Grammy's influence, and he gets a real nasty taste of what she's like the next time the crew meets him.
* WorldOfPun: His chosen method of dessert gets Eloy going on a near endless loop of crepe puns.

!!Frieda Gazamar
A grey elf surgeon with a zealot-like fervor in serving the god of death and pain. She's unquestionably good at her job, but her bedside manner is...unconventional. Ezra recruits her to be the surgeon.
----
* CoveredWithScars: She has deep scarification all over her face and well past her neck.
* TheDreaded: The people in the guild seem justifiably terrified of her.
* EveryoneHasStandards: While eager for the opportunity to feel pain to test if her faith in Vexkor needs more improvement, she's not as eager to take opportunities where the pain is very fleeting, such as discovering the Kahl's contract branding to be such, as it would be pointless measure of her devotion.
* FeelNoPain: Underwent a ritual to deaden the nerves in her skin.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In her spiel about how she finds those who cannot feel pain or cannot handle pain weak, either Zito or herself forgot that by the standards of her own religion, her ritual to not feel pain would make her weak in the eyes of her god.
* KnifeNut: Has plenty of knives of all unconventional sizes and shapes, and tends to discard them pretty regularly. Zito explains that her daggers have twisted and curved blades like a silly straw, and every time she draws one, it has a different shape.
* MadDoctor: Due to her belief that pain is good, her treatments are just as painful as the injuries inflicted.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Her nickname is ''The Pain Witch''.
* {{Sadist}}: Her religious beliefs make her one of these.

!!Mister Large
A large, lanky Bugbear Cannonneer. He doesn't say much, but he's nice enough. He's also ludicrously stealthy. Ezra decides to hire him.
----
* ElectiveMute: An interesting version: He can understand and write Common, but he can only speak Goblin. So he uses a notepad and quill to interact with the world. To anyone else on the other hand, he could easily come off as TheSpeechless.
* FlashStep: Seems to move so fast the eye can't keep up with it.
* HandyMan: When he's not working as a Cannonneer, he's doing all sorts of odd jobs around Rite.
* StealthyColossus: He is terrifyingly good at moving around without being noticed, which he explains he had to be in order to survive his prior life of slavery.
* StealthHiBye: The master of it.

!!Charlotte Gillies
A sea-elf who speaks indirectly to the god of knowledge; Lazameth. Ezra hires her as the ship's Navigator.
----
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: She's a believer in this to a fault.
* CassandraTruth: Charlotte couldn't convince people that her god was talking to her until much later in life.
* LockedAwayInAMonastery: Was tossed into a Ludariusian convent in the hopes that her hearing voices and speaking in tongues would be cured. Turns out through testing that it was the wrong convent to send her to, and she was released.
* TheNavigator: Claims to be able to get a bird's eye view of things around her while at sea.
* [[NeverAcceptedInHisHometown Never Accepted In Her Hometown]]: Initially, Charlotte's village thought she was speaking in tongues and shunned her.
* SuperGullible: If you tell her the gods want her to do something, she will do it.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]]: With Jillian. They joined the guild at about the same time, are both elves, and are always seen together. It was so bad that even Zito would get the two of them mixed up. [[spoiler:In a bit of DarkComedy, the players mentioned that it will get easier to remember now that Jillian is dead.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mimic Crew]]
!!Tropes that apply to all characters
* DemotedToExtra: In the first chapter, the mimics were part of a side story that lasted half of the arc. Afterword's though, only Yeldin gets anything above a brief mention.
* PutOnABus: Either stayed with Wake or left in a warehouse in Rite because the players forgot about them and didn't state that they were loaded onto the new ship.
* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler: All of the crew suffered this fate, with only Yeldin remembering it, after they sought refuge to hide their treasures inside the cave he resides within. One by one, they were snatched by a colony of mind flayers(with Yeldin being the last) hiding beneath the southern island, and thorough BodyHorror were transformed into Mimics.]]

!!Trunky the Mimic
A chest-shaped Mimic the group finds in Yeldin Cave. It doesn't have a name, but Ezra gave him the nickname "Trunky" and it stuck despite its protests.

* NewMeat: As noted by Kevin, he's among the newest batch of Yeldin's mimics, and as such, takes his duties a little more strictly than his fellows.

!!Kevin the Mimic
A scabbard-shaped Mimic that used to belong to Yeldin. The group finds it much more reaonable than Trunky.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Measures time in "chapters", the same way the TFS crew numbers their adventures.
* MetaphoricallyTrue: Gives half-truths (as opposed to ''actual truths'') when simply given regular metal swords. Flaming swords [[spoiler: and mithril]] will give actual truths.
* OrificeInvasion: One would think that the opening where swords go would be his mouth. Wake and co. learn to Kevin's discomfort that it is not.
* ThroughHisStomach: He answers questions (or at least, gives ''correct'' answers) if he is given a sword to eat. He is particularly interested in what a FlamingSword might taste like, [[spoiler: though a {{Mithril}} sword is apparently worth ''all the truths''.]]

!!Roy the Mimic
Another chest-shaped Mimic the group finds in a locked room in Yeldin Cave. It was created specifically to dispose of corpses.

* BottomlessBladder: Produces no waste of what he consumes, making him perfect for disposing anything.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Just because he can eat things like decomposed or partially slime-eaten rat corpses, doesn't mean he's willing to eat, in his words, something that has already passed through someone's body.
* {{Teleportation}}: Implied that this is how he disposes of bodies. He says that the one time he tried to vomit, he spat out a moon rock.
* SeriesMascot: Of a sort. He currently serves as the standard bit jar during the Twitch streams.

!!Lancy the Mimic
A ring-shaped Mimic that was inside Trunky. It eats finger bones to create skeleton keys, but only one at a time.

* {{Fingore}}: How he creates keys. Wake narrowly avoids getting a demonstration with his finger.
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Twofold. First, the key produced from the carved finger bone only opens a certain door once. Second, only one finger from a certain being can be used to make a key.

!!Zia'ka
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ziaka.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Bitch."]]

A Yuan-Ti Abomination warlock who was captured by Skrung, Risf, "Redd", and Pliskin after they discovered her stalking them. She served as navigator for the ''Yeldin'' while she and the rest of her crew went looking for The Heart of the Collective One, a god of the Yuan-Ti.

Once the crew safely retrieved and returned it to it's proper place of rest, she left the crew to be it's acolyte.
----
* TheAtoner: Whatever it is she's atoning from she mentions has to do with gold.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: After leaving the hunting party temporarily to inform her people of their presence and mission, she returns with a pack of her people to save the party from yet another EldritchAbomination that the group are in no longer any shape to deal with]].
* BlackMagic: We don't know much about her magic abilities, but evidence points to the 'dark' category.
* BoundAndGagged: Introduced this way, as Skrung's party subdued her for following them.
* DarkIsNotEvil: She's not an antagonist, despite her powers and the way she was introduced. She just wants wants to make sure the Collective One's tributes go undisturbed.
* DumbStruck: Her initial reaction to [[spoiler: Cletus presenting Wake with a Yuan-ti corpse.]] She manages to pull herself together, but it's clear this was ''not'' a good situation for her.
* EasilyForgiven: Even though Skrung's group attacked and ensared her, she puts that behind her once she states her peace and calms down. She even seemed to strike up a friendship with "Redd."
* GoldFever: Is noted to react very strongly to gold, which the party witnesses when Skrung and Wake give her a share of the gold they loot from the naval camp.
* ImAHumanitarian: Well, a predator anyway. She's expressed a desire to eat the faun Calliope, and isn't afraid to express that desire when she gets mad.
* NoSenseOfHumor: Justified, given the circumstances. She mistakes the boardwalk's crab-like mascot Pinchy for an abyssal monster in episode 7.
* NotSoAboveItAll: She finds herself legitimately enjoying the boardwalk atmosphere, despite the changes they made to the temple.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, she was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In her case, the party helps her to commune with her people and their god, the Collective One, and joins the party after they agree to help her retrieve the lost Heart of the Collective One, an icon of incredible power.
* PrecisionFStrike: After learning the meaning of the word "bitch" from Wake, she immediately turned around and called Ave Lo a bitch to her face.
* PutOnABus: Upon returning the Heart of the Collective One and being made a priestess, Zia'ka leaves the crew to lead her people.
* SnakePeople: Of the mostly-snake variety. She resembles a gigantic serpent with arms and some [[NonMammalianMammaries feminine curves about the torso]].
* ScaryStitches: The hood she's wearing is stitched together from mismatched patches of fabric.
* SuddenlyShouting: When she's first introduced, she ends up working herself up and begins shouting at Wake, even though he asked her several times to behave herself.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Zito has mentioned the players would have met Zia'ka under different circumstances had they taken the route through the temple/boardwalk.

!!"Honest" Gulfur Flaegurr
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gulfurresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Cap'n! You dunno who you're talkin' to!"]]


A dwarf that gambled with Wake in Episode 2. He lost horribly. Now serves as shipwright and Alchemist of the ''Yeldin''. Died in Chapter 3 from the ''Yeldin'' being dropped by a giant, possibly while he was having a seizure.
----
* CameBackWrong: In Chapter 3 Session 10, Captain Meed tells the party that [[spoiler:his observers saw vampires boarding the ''Yeldin'' and leaving with what appeared to be Gulfur, meaning they revived him either as another vampire or a ghoul.]]
* CardSharp: Used his false leg to rattle the dice table when playing against Wake. It's up in the air as to whether this actually helped though.
* ChemistryCanDoAnything: As the ships alchemist, and since this is a D&D campaign, he's capable of doing plenty of crazy things with materials the crew brings back to him.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:One of four characters that could possibly have died during that part of the campaign, but it wasn't guaranteed that anyone ''had'' to die. Gulfur got a Nat 1 on his roll so he was long dead before Wake even found him. He died possibly by seizure or falling damage.]]
* KilledOffForReal: In Chapter 3 Session 5, [[spoiler:Wake finds Gulfurr's body with heart cut out and goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the Grung frog people, who took the heart (which the group successfully retrieves). However, in the next episode Grammy reveals that he was dead before the Grungs got to him, more than likely from the fall.]]
* MyFistForgivesYou: When Wake apologizes for his lack-of-trust-influenced and impulsive decision to plant a rune bomb on Gulfur's neck (he was concerned that Gulfur would run off with the mimic ship, along with his own mimics who he had loaned), the latter stomps on Wake's foot as he accepts the apology. [[spoiler: It helps that due to a reverse YearInsideHourOutside effect in the room the main trio fought Viktor, a week passed]].
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable if the right sidequest was undertaken. In this case, the party win his treasure map in a game of chance, accept his guidance to find where it leads, and eventually find the mimic ship Yeldin, which he claims for his own property but allows the party to use.

!!Jillian Harvest
An Eladrin Boatswain that Wake bumps into outside the guild. She's an excitable girl who wants to enjoy the life of adventure she's put out for herself. Ezra recruits her to be the new Boatswain.
----
* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Her]]: [[spoiler:Dies rather suddenly after Dagon tried healing her with a plant growth potion. The plant that grows out of her seems to suck the life out of her like a parasite.]]
* ExpressiveHair: Her hair has flowers growing from it, and resembles plantlife.
* GenkiGirl: Her portrait is a wide-eyed, open-mouthed picture of pure excitement.
* GreenThumb: Her powers in general.
* {{Irony}} : Both in and out-of-universe. In universe, she [[spoiler:dies from a potion that helps plants grow]] and out-of-universe, she was Yeldin's replacement to help the crew's ship grow in size and strength and be easily repaired. [[spoiler:She's, of course, the first of the new crew to die.]]
** On the other hand, [[spoiler: Gulfur's death was utterly random led to nothing much but bad things for the party until they reached Rite and joined the Guild]]. Meanwhile, [[spoiler: Jillian died by pure human accident, but it was in the attempt to both save her and deal with their current predicament of fey spiders, and then later, the experience of her death was instrumental in saving some captured slaves from some cruel Femorian slavers, including a little girl that had especially been beaten horribly by them. In other words. Gulfur died a pointless death, Jillian's indirectly led to lives being saved]].
* TheHeart: For Charlotte being the GenkiGirl and her good friend (so much so that the players and even the GM mixes the two of them up since they were always together). [[spoiler:Charlotte barely holds it together when Jillian dies.]]
* JumpedAtTheCall: She enjoyed working as aid for farmers in Silvergleam, but the first chance she got she immediately made her way to Rite to join the guild.
* PlantHair: She can change the color and "season" of her hair at will, but only once a day.
* PowerIncontinence: If she's sufficiently excited, she can accidentally blow her once-a-day hairstyle change.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Not herself, but her power to regrow wood that has been broken is very similar to the way ''Yeldin'' [[spoiler:used to]] regenerate itself. It's primarily because of her need for the raw materials and little else that Ezra hires her
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]]: With Charlotte. They joined the guild at about the same time, are both elves, and are always seen together. It was so bad that even Zito would get the two of them mixed up. [[spoiler:In a bit of DarkComedy, the players mentioned that it will get easier to remember now that Jillian is dead.]]

!!Yeldin
The enigmatic and all but declared dead captain of the "Mimic crew", and said to have sailed a Mimic ''ship''. Revealed to in fact ''BE'' the mimic ship, and be resting inside a cave of shipwrecks on the southern isles deep within the abandoned Mind Flayer base. The crew frees him, and for most of Chapters 1 and 2 serves as their ship.

Sadly, after Gulfurr's death, Yeldin's soul left the ship and it had to be scuttled lest it become a danger to those around it.
----
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: Implied heavily to be how the Mind Flayers transformed him and his crew into mimics.]]
** Happens AGAIN when the crew transports the Collective One's heart. [[spoiler: It's so hot that he has to eat the metal in the floorboards just to keep himself from catching fire]]
* CannibalismSuperpower: [[spoiler: When he consumes something inorganic, his ship body will take on the properties of those objects proportional to how much as he consumed. Ie portholes becoming gold after being fed a gold bar, the rusted metal of the ships sides becoming mythril after being fed a mythril flintlock. Furthermore, he can take on the appearance of any other ship by consuming it, or just use the matter to make himself larger.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Dies with Gulfurr which is surprising as not only was the mechanic of them needing a living relative to survive not mentioned until after Gulfur died, but Gulfur being his last living relative was also not mentioned before.]]
* EmptyShell: [[spoiler:Following Gulfurr's death, Yeldin goes eerily quiet and the group can't figure out why. Eventually the leaders of the Volition explain that it's because Yeldin isn't there anymore -- the death of Gulfurr, his last living descendant, severed his connection to the mortal world, meaning that the ship had become a mindless Mimic.]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: While being a soul stuck to a ship sucks big time, eternally forced into service...
* HiddenDepths: Eloy's bard battle at Bulkard reveals he has a commanding, and very resonant, singing voice.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:After they reveal that Yeldin's soul was gone, the leaders of the Volition tell Ezra and crew that the ship would have to be destroyed -- with no higher intelligence, it would just mindlessly eat and grow as per a Mimic's normal "programming", becoming a great danger to those around it.]]
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: [[spoiler: The last thing he remembers before waking up in his current ship form. He describes waking up to bright lights and "Octopus People" staring down at him. He turned to the side to see Kevin similarly StrappedToAnOperatingTable, and the Octopus People pulling his ''intestines out through his nose''.]]
* VikingFuneral: Is subject to this in Chapter 3 after his body reverts to a feral mimic ship. A unique case of the funereal subject being the burning ship itself rather than inside one.

[[folder: Recruitable Adventurer's Guild Members]]
Introduced as part of the Adventurer's Guild in Chapter 3. The Natural Oneders can now pick up to four or five people to go on expeditions with them.

!! Soup Kitchen
A warforged whose only goal in life is to cook meals. He is ''very'' serious about it.
----
* BerserkButton: Food Critics.
* CordonBleughChef: Ezra gets the impression that he's probably able to make decent food, but taste might be an issue.
* MundaneUtility: Because he's a warforged, his limbs can be replaced and regrown easily. He mostly uses this skill to change between cooking utensils.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes turn piercing red when angered.

!! Magic "Bill" Wilhelm
A Crested Wood Duck-Aaracocra summoner and published author. He can be hired as either an Arcanist or a Helmsman.
----
* CoveredWithScars: His hands anyway. He got them from accidentally summoning a demon that was a little too powerful for him to control.
* FurryReminder: When he laughs, he sometimes gets a little quack in here or there.
* LiteralDisarming: Inverted. He took the limb of a demon to use as a staff.
* MundaneUtility: His book delves into the uses of summoning for the everyday person.
* SummonMagic: his skillset. His books are all about teaching people the basics of it.

!! Charr Venarus AKA "Kowalski"
A redscale Dragonborn who works as a photographer and as a fighter for the Adventuring Guild.
----
* CameraFiend: Is pretty up to date on how the tech is coming along.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Humans around town refer to him as Kowalski.
* OnlySaneMan: Initially, but it's revealed he's actually more of a BloodKnight.
* PerpetualFrowner: Isn't in a great mood when he encounters the wonders, and doesn't wane on that.
* TheStoic

!! Gentle
A Nudibranch-Merfolk War Mage who is well known in Rite...But not for the right reasons.
----
* CreepyMonotone: She's quite polite, but she is far too interested in dealing out death for her own good.
* TheDreaded: Nobody on Rite wants ''anything'' to do with her.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: She's a war mage. She does war.
* NonIndicativeName: She's a war mage who starts and ends wars on a whim. She is ''anything'' but Gentle.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: So seldom the players couldn't recall what a nudibranch looked like.


!! Doc Ramsfang
An enormous orc carpenter who the crew encounters at a specialty shop. Like nearly everyone else on the island, he works at the Adventuring Guild, and is for hire.
----
* AnimalMotif: Rams.
* TheBigGuy: Towers over the entire One-Der crew.
* BoisterousBruiser: Jovial and more than capable of smashing a few heads.
* MeaningfulName: His bottom tusks curl up like a ram's horn.
* OptionalPartyMember: Zito made it abundantly clear he's for hire.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Guest Characters]]
!! Aarondale Jekanda "AJ"
A guest character played by Takahata 101, a high elf wizard cursed by the God of Time to teleport randomly every 12 hours until he can find everything on a list of 100 items.
----
* AmusingInjuries: Has a scar on his neck that apparently quite clearly came from one of the monsters he had to pull a tooth off of.
* AssholeVictim: Was cursed due to harassing a fellow student who turned out to be an aasimar, although in telling the story he tries to make himself sound like the victim. Out of character Taka describes him as the "Draco Malfoy" of his school, forced into humiliating circumstances.
* BreakTheHaughty: His curse was implemented for this reason, and has worked partially; he's not nearly as aloof and cruel as he once was, but he hasn't learned anything about compassion or quelling his ego.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Being an ace transmuter doesn't mean a hell of a lot when you're cursed with trying to find things.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Enforced by his curse. He has to find an increasing amount of hard to find and bizarre things and fill a bag of holding with it. Naturally, he is EXTREMELY loathe to part with any of it.
* {{Cuckold}}: He mentions to Eloy that at one point he teleported back home and thought his ordeal was over, only to see his girlfriend having sex with the same person who cursed him. Of course, by this point he'd been such an utter pain in the ass that the normally friendly Eloy's response was "[[PrecisionFStrike Guess how many shits I give?]]"
* FantasticRacism: When addressed by Ezra, a half-elf, as a fellow elf, he causally quips that such a comparison is a stretch.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: None of the regular party members or [=NPCs=] are really fond of him; even Eloy gets snappish after being around him too long. They only put up with him because he's willing to pay handsomely for their assistance.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Since Taka can't play with them all the time, they came up with a character who had a good reason to leave but also a good way to pop back in if he wants to play again.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Thinks only in terms of his own needs and ignorant to those of others. Partially this is justified by his desperation to find the next item before his time expires, but he also ignores the feelings of those helping him in this quest. Whenever someone complains about the trouble his presence causes, he simply reminisces about how much his own life sucks, and insists they should be happy to be so well-paid for helping him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Exacerbated by the fact that he's been stuck with this curse for 15 years now, but he doesn't show much concern for anything other than himself and getting his list items. He even manages to piss off ''[[{{ThePollyanna}} Eloy]]''.
* LaughingMad: Over a decade of randomly teleporting every 12 hours has left him... ''less than stable'', and he has a tendency to suddenly burst into laughter for no reason.
* TheLoad: The nature of his curse, limp and abrasive, snotty personality all but ensures he's had to gather most of the things on his list himself, as he's practically useless in most circumstances. Enforced by Taka, as when making him, Zito gave Taka a host of spells to choose from and he refused a lot of them, citing them as "Too useful."
* MoodSwinger: Has a tendency to jump from LaughingMad to growling out threats within the same sentence, especially when he's upset.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Goes by AJ.
* ThePigPen: Admits that, when he first meets the party, he hasn't bathed in months.
* PowerIncontinence: Was extremely adept at Transmutation magic, but his curse locked away his ability to use such spells, which opened him up to using all the other schools...but he's supposedly awful at them. And the only divination spell he can use is ''Locate Item''. [[{{Irony}} The very spell he mocked Divination for having in the first place when he was mocking an Aasimar Divination major.]]
* TheStoner: Looks like one, anyway.
* TheUnfettered: He's been at this hunt for so long he's long since stopped caring about anything other than lifting his curse.
* VerbalTic: Constantly points out how much time he has until his next teleportation.

!! Isoria
A guest character played by [=MasakoX=]. An Aasimar Sorceress who was sent from North Xellus to gather information, appearing in the Unwitnessed Kingdom before the Natural One-Ders. However, she's not exactly sure what her masters wanted her to find.
----
* AllGirlsLikePonies: Averted: when told the Unwitnessed Kingdom is inhabited by unicorns, she claims they were popular with other girls but she never got into the fixation.
* AnIcePerson: Isoria likes using spells that deal cold damage.
* TheComicallySerious: She remains unflappable even in the face of [[spoiler:Wake punching a gigantic duplicate of Eloy in the testicles]].
* CrossCastRole: A female character run by a male player.
* DeusExMachina: Provides the group with a way to safely transport the Unicorns to the surface.
* FlatCharacter: Unfortunately Masako visited at the climax of a story arc, meaning everyone was focused on that and thus Isoria didn't get much opportunity to demonstrate her personality; compare to AJ, who showed up during a lull in the action and thus had an entire episode centered around him.
%%* {{Foil}}: To AJ.
* InMediasRes: Her "masters" sent her through a portal, resulting in her showing up in the middle of the Trial of Wills and being thoroughly confused.
* NotSoDifferent: While she couldn't be less like Caster, she also expresses disgust in the same way he does.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: An Aasimar and a Sorceress who's apparently pretty well-versed in the past, and she's about the size of a halfling.

!! Keldemov
A guest character played by Brian. Woolly-Loxodon Cleric who is to be the new Great Kal's personal guard. Due to circumstances of the planned assassination, He needs the Oneder's help to get to his would-be king to keep him safe.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: He's missing a leg and a tusk, using his warhammer as a crutch to move around.
* TheComicallySerious: Along with with being not so above it all, Keldemov is a giant elephant man with a very deep voice who is built like a tank and is an obviously veteran fighter. He freaks out whenever he has to be diplomatic and, thus, tries to act nice and reasonable just to come off as incredibly awkward. He rolls a '''3''' on a persuasion on a little girl and yet still won out as she got a Nat 1.
* DropTheHammer: Has a Runic Warhammer.
* MundaneUtility: His Weapon of choice also functions as a pretty neat walking stick.
* NiceGuy: At first, he seems to be the type of man who wouldn't care about the common folk because of his demeanor and his position, but he always does his best to help people.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Introduced as a very serious man, but is scared by Madam Gigglesplinters and finds it hilarious that a crew of guards tried to arrest her and she, unsurprisingly, escaped almost immediately.
* PraetorianGuard: To be the head of it once the coronation happens.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Among other things, he asked the crew to give up their contraband of potions that Ezra managed to hide. After the Dagon [[spoiler:accidently kills Jillian with one]] he either didn't put up a fuss that they hid it or that they give them to Charlotte for study. He would also be within his rights to order that the destruction of the spider infested tower not be carried out since the dead bodies of the guard haven't yet been collected, but he let's the crew blow up the tower seemly because of the threat the spiders pose. He also points out that he can't arrest Madam Gigglesplinters because she's outside his jurisdiction which seems unreasonable [[spoiler:since she somehow has access to abyssal tumors]], but he is well aware that it would be pointless to try and arrest her. This is proven when it's revealed that the guards had already tried to arrest her and she immediately escaped.
* ShockAndAwe: He's a Tempest-domain cleric, so he's got access to plenty of this.
* StraightMan: To the One-ders, due to his station and also his job makes him one within minutes of meeting them.

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:General Tropes]]
* BirdsOfAFeather: Non-romantic example. As both Ezra and Eloy are aspiring entertainers, Ezra with his dream of running a travelling circus and Eloy's dream of spreading his music, the two become fast friends during the first arc. In contrast to [[TheStoic Wake]] who only starts opening up at the start of Chapter 2.
** Meanwhile, Ezra and Dagon are likewise quick to hit it off, given both have [[LovableRogue very rogue-ish tendencies]] and a shared disdain for authority.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: It's heavily implied that the people they work with see them as this. Calliope and Redd have outright called them buffoons.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Jack Kaiser illustrated all the official character portraits, but because the episode recaps are done with fan-submitted artwork, characters often appear dramatically different from slide to slide.
* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped a Tower on them]]: [[spoiler: In order to allow the campaign to continue as well as deal with Hbi2k's departure, Eloy, Ezra, and Dagon all died in a fiery explosion that kicked off the new CrapsackWorld La Cirunus has become.]]
* MeaningfulName: The Natural One-ders got their nickname from their frequently disastrous Natural 1 rolls.
* {{Omniglot}}: Surprisingly. Almost every main character speaks multiple languages. For example, Wake, Ezra, and Eloy all speak Elvish, and "Redd" and Zia'ka both speak infernal and draconic.
%%* IdiotBall: It usually comes in the form of a natural one. But all three have had instances of making really poor decisions.
* PlayingBothSides: The Oneders as a rule try their best to keep on the good side of both the Navy and the Pirates, though each individual tends to lean more towards the pirate side when they can help it. In Chapter 3, they finally decide to join the Grand Design full-time.
* PowerTrio: The main three have fallen into this as of Chapter 2, with Ezra as TheLeader, Wake as TheLancer, and Eloy as TheHeart.
* SixthRanger: Dagon was this.

!!Player Characters
[[folder:Wake Scalebound]]
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wake_6.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:A Merman on a mission.]]
Lani's character, a Merman monk out to avenge his lost families. First mate of the ''Yeldin'', at first he helped make the ultimate decisions with Ezra's blessing, but has since moved into a more support role as Ezra's CharacterDevelopment kicked in, and he's taken up the position of Navigator.

As a result of the many, ''many'' shattering revelations and because of his own behavior over Chapter 3, Wake states that he cannot continue adventuring as he has been, and leaves the party.

In Chapter 4, He ends up being the [[spoiler:SoleSurvivor of the Natural One-ders after the fall of Eburkal.]]
----
* AchievementsInIgnorance: In the first episode, he rips an Abyssal tumor out of a goliath cadaver and handles it twice without suffering any ill-effects. He only finds out much later that this could have gone ''very'' badly. Later on, he ends up doing something similar when meeting with the Troglodytes, grabbing a cursed ax that would have infected him if his constitution roll wasn't so high.
* AndThenWhat: Admits to Calliope his internal desire for revenge for what happened to his families is so great he doesn't really have a plan for after his vengeance is doled out.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Refuses to believe in the undead, despite encountering them numerous times. In chapter 3 we learn this it because he read a book about the Ashdrakes, a famous clan of vampire hunters, as a child, and assumed everything in it was fictional. Meeting an actual member of said family finally makes him realize the truth.
* ArrowCatch: Uses his Deflect Missiles ability to catch an errant underwater crossbow bolt fired at a shark by Ezra, narrowly avoiding another friendly fire incident.
* BalefulPolymorph: Gets turned into a deer after killing one in an area that has been cursed by a Wendigo. Luckily for him, he retains most of his fighting prowess even with a different number of legs. He manages to figure out an unconventional way of curing himself, by forcing his ki into his animated body.
* BattleTrophy: In a pretty weird example, after being transformed into a deer and retrieving his original body, he keeps the skull that was part of his enchanted form.
* BareFistedMonk: Though he also wields a spear.
* BerserkButton:
** Takes issue with pirates who actively pillage.
** He ''really'' does not like slavery, as seen in Episode 8 when he punches Theraday ''through'' Nedra's contract.
* BladeOnAStick: His weapon of choice is literally a spearhead attached to a quarterstaff. In Chapter 1 he gets the spearhead silver-plated.
* BloodKnight: It only comes up during his very heated (literally, even) fight with Nedra, after he narrowly avoids taking too much damage, but he's clearly enjoying himself as the fight rages on. He starts to drift toward this more frequently in later arcs, his increasingly erratic behavior threatening the safety of his allies on several occasions. This is due to his not fully understanding how to control his emotions.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Being a fishman gives him a slightly unusual perspective on the food chain, given that he can converse (to a very limited extent) with fish but is also willing to eat them. When he encounters a chained zombie orc aboard the Mantaruva, he happily tosses it a hand from a human cadaver and watches in fascination as it chows down, to Redd's disgust and concern.
** This bites him ''hard'' when he kills a deer in the midst of a seemingly abandoned town, a situation most adventurers would approach with considerable caution. Sure enough, shortly after [[BalefulPolymorph he starts turning into a deer]].
** And again when he prioritizes the mission over his friends [[spoiler: while they're being held hostage by a sea dragon. Redd is furious with him, and Eloy doesn't think he can trust Wake again.]]
* BookDumb: Thanks to Lani consistently rolling very low on knowledge checks, Wake is underinformed on a lot of subjects.
* BornLucky:
** Episode 2 has him get extremely lucky rolls while gambling. He does even better in Episode 7 with several natural 20s that helpped him beat Nedra.
** Tongue numbing aside, he manages to avoid the poisonous aspects of Grammy's [[spoiler: pufferfish]] pie, gaining +2 AC in the process.
* ButNowIMustGo: In Chapter 3 as a result of ''everything'' that's happened to him since joining the Oneders, [[spoiler: Wake admits to Ezra that he cannot keep going on as he has been, and he leaves the party. He does [[GuestStarPartyMember temporarily]] [[TheBusCameBack rejoin]] after being absent for a session to take part in Eloy's second bard college battle and Yeldin's VikingFuneral, as well as more properly say his farewells to his friends, considering his initial farewell was under heavy emotional stress and had left Eloy and Ezra uneasy. Even after this, Lani and Zito have stated that the whole thing is not a permanent departure, at least from the story.]]
* CannotSpitItOut: [[spoiler: Gets tongue-tied around Calliope and isn't able to confess his feelings toward her by the time she has to part ways with the crew at the end of chapter 2.]] This leaves him feeling very despondent.
* CharacterAlignment: Per WordOfGod from Lani during a Q&A after Chapter 2 episode 5, Wake is a good-leaning ChaoticNeutral. In Chapter 2 episode 14 he describes himself as Chaotic Good, though the rest of the group questions the "Good" part after [[spoiler:Wake pisses off a dragon by stealing from its treasure horde and leaves them to smooth things over.]]
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: At the start of the campaign, Wake was very stoic and thoughtful. Various natural 1's on intelligence-related rolls have, over time, caused him to be more brash and reckless. However, it only makes sense given his various traumas and his relative youth that, as Chapter 3 has shown so far, he has far from overcome.
** CharacterDevelopment: Upon realizing this, and having a nightmare scare him straight, he decides that rather be Nedra's mentor in terms of keeping calm and restrained, he'll be a fellow student in that regard.
* CollectorOfTheStrange:
** In Chapter 1, he obtains three Mimics (Kevin the Scabbard, Lancy the Ring, and Roy the Chest) in addition to helping recover Yeldin the mimic ship. He eventually cedes these to Gulfur as part of their deal to share control of Yeldin, but keeps the smaller mimics on his person.
** In Chapter 3, he starts collecting the left hands of corpses without explaining his reason, to the confusion of both his crewmates and their players.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Is none too happy about being saved by [[spoiler:Edward Caster]] in the undersea city and throws a knife at his feet. While nobody in the group is particularly fond of the man, Ezra at least has the humility to show gratitude for it.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: Literally in name only. Wake uses [[spoiler:his previously-thought-dead Brothers' names when he's incognito.]]
* DoomedHometown: In his backstory, Wake has had the misfortune of suffering this ''twice''. First his merfolk clan was slaughtered by Naval forces, and then the monastery that adopted him was slaughtered by a mysterious pirate. As a result, he has an inherent hatred for both of the significant military powers in the setting.
* DumbMuscle: He's the most physically powerful of the main trio, and as more and more time goes on, he's shown to be far from intelligent. Slightly downplayed as he can be reasonably clever when his head isn't clouded by emotion.
* DumpStat: While his stats are perfectly okay for a Monk, his Charisma score still sits at 11 several levels later, and because it's the one stat that he has that doesn't have any bonuses, he frequently fails at diplomacy or trying to get across things.
* FailedASpotCheck: Thanks to several abysmal Perception rolls, he has frequently failed to notice threatening creatures in his immediate vicinity.
* {{Fanboy}}: To the Ashdrake vampire hunter clan. Which he promptly reacts with glee over when he meets two of them.
* FatalFlaw: A two-punch combo of deeply rooted Pride, which when besmirched leads him to doing extremely reckless things, and a skewed sense of right and wrong, which sometimes butts heads with his crew, like [[spoiler:when he stole a suit of armour from a Sea Dragon, leaving the rest of the crew to mollify it.]]
** Chapter 3 delves into a new one: [[spoiler:His explosive temper and tendency to tunnel-vision when he's angry, best seen in Episode 4 where he goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge over Gulfurr's death, trying to slaughter all of the grungs. He gets a wake-up call the next episode, where he has a dream of brutally slaughtering the people who've angered him in the past (including Redd) and is disturbed to realize he's ''enjoying'' it, followed by receiving both a WhatTheHellHero speech from his late Sensei and a SoDisappointedInYou look from Nedra.]]
* FlatEarthAtheist: Is wholeheartedly convinced that any necromancy is a trick, and that raising the dead is impossible. Though somewhat {{Downplayed}} in that he seems to consider 'raising the dead' to be full-on [[BackFromTheDead Resurrection]] and considers all zombies or similar creatures to simply be inanimate corpses being puppeted by some external force like magic or abyssal tumors. Encountering the zombies on the Mantaruva really confuses him until he grudgingly admits that undead must exist, but [[NotUsingTheZWord insists on using any other term to describe them]].
** In Chapter 3 the group meets a famous clan of vampire hunters and Lani rolls a Natural 20 on his Knowledge check, which he decides to interpret as Wake being a total fanboy who'd read all of their books. He also uses this to explain Wake's attitude towards the undead, saying that he assumed everything in the books was fictional, but meeting the hunters in real life made him realize it was all real -- including vampires and zombies.
* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Downplayed. He purchased a Glove of Shocking Grasp from Gimme and Gimmick, but never used it before [[spoiler: giving it to a dragon as tribute for safe passage]].
* GoingCommando: Confirmed by Lani in the post-Episode 10 Q&A, Wake doesn't wear anything under his kilt, as any undergarments would just tear when the legs changed into a tail.
-->'''Lani:''' He goes full Scotsman.
* HeartbrokenBadass: He gets this way at the end of Chapter 2 when Calliope leaves the ship due to her obligations to Vennin Island, only partially realizing that he has feelings for her (and also getting stoned by [[ToadLicking licking Yt]] for some "self-reflection").
* TheHero: The defacto owner of this position for the game as the most competent of the team and most involved with the ongoing plot, at least in Chapter 1.
* HiddenDepths: Episode 4 has him playing the harp.
* HughMann: In Bulkard, he covers himself with makeup in an attempt to look human. He barely manages to get by, at least initially, by claiming to have been badly burned as a child.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: His justification for [[spoiler: abandoning the rest of the party in a dragon's lair in order to steal a suit of armor. He claims it was necessary in order to fulfill their goal of acquiring treasure in the expedition. That said, he does apologize to the others afterward]].
* IncompletelyTrained: His monastery was destroyed when he was in the early stages of training; as such, he's had to learn a lot of the techniques by trial and error (and in one case, taking a narcotic), and in particular lacks much of the emotional and spiritual control he should have been taught. This results in his losing self-control on numerous occasions and eventually threatens his ability to maintain his class.
* InelegantBlubbering: [[spoiler: When he better explains his reasons for leaving to Ezra and Eloy, and the whole exchange turns into a group hug, Lani describes Wake as "Manga/OnePiece crying".]]
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: As a result of his [[DoomedHometown tragic past]], he doesn't cope well with being made to feel weak or powerless. This causes no end of problems for the crew, such as betting a favor and later almost his own freedom over a pissing contest with Edward Caster.
** Gets even worse when [[spoiler: he tries to get one over a powerful Sea Dragon by stealing from it's trove after the party had successfully mollified it, leaving the rest of them to deal with the fallout.]] Though he apologises, it lowers his esteem quite a bit in the eyes of Redd and Eloy, the latter of whom said he doesn't feel he can trust him after that.
* IronButtMonkey:
** Ends up on the receiving end of Ezra's bad luck more than once, getting both [[spoiler: shot in the neck and blown back by dynamite.]]
** An instance where he does it to himself: In trying to essentially force the Gimme brothers to return his now-upgraded spear in an emergency, [[spoiler: he ends up having his hand DISLOCATED by a metal door, before their current expedition even began. Fortunately, it's all but completely healed up right after]]
* ItsPersonal: Though he ends up having to work with both over the course of the story, his animosity towards pirates and the Navy still tend to crack through and has led to some trouble. The worst example is when he LeeroyJenkins [[spoiler: the horde of abyssal zombies Viktor has surrounded himself in, leading into a struggle against them that doesn't leave them in the best of shape for the FinalBoss. Even after that fight and finally confronting Viktor himself, Wake is clearly taking his fury out on this one Naval officer who he doesn't have to work together with]].
** It also relates to his {{Pride}}: when Edward Caster taunted him over winning their previous bet, Wake (who was already in a bad mood after learning that a Teifling pirate lord may have been responsible for the destruction of his monastery) got so pissed off that he actually offered up a "double or nothing" bet where he would become Caster's personal servant forever if he lost (with Lani outright stating that he'd be completely willing to retire the character if he lost the bet). Thankfully, the other characters were there to talk Caster down.
** Chapter 3 shows a new side to this: [[spoiler:Wake meets the pirate lord who he blamed for the destruction of his monastery, only to discover that not only was she innocent, but she was trying to ''save'' the people from whatever was attacking them. Upon realizing that he'd spent a good chunk of his life chasing an innocent person, he decides to leave the Natural One-ders in order to continue his monk training and try to re-order his life around something other than revenge.]]
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: [[spoiler: With a clearer head and not having come out from a life-or-death situation (and instead from a fun event), Wake is better able to explain the reasons for his abrupt departure and pretty much says this to Ezra, which turns the handshake into a group hug between the TrueCompanions]].
* KillItWithFire: Sometimes for practical reasons...other times not. When confronted with a cave of spider eggs in Episode 5, he lights them on fire to save time and avoid a large-scale confrontation. Also blows up large parts of a naval ship to create a distraction.
** Aboard the Mantaruva, he's so eager to burn the ship and its undead occupants that the very moment Redd says she has everything she needs, he pours lamp oil all over the floor and sets it ablaze, forcing the party to OutrunTheFireball to get back to their lifeboat (while Redd, a fire mage, could have easily blasted the ship from a safe position). Shortly after he sets part of the ocean ablaze with oil in order to kill a pack of vampirized mako sharks.
** While Eloy has the Wendigo hypnotized, he hits on the idea of dousing it with oil and surrounding it with explosive bolts before igniting everything with his elemental atunement. The resulting fireball does over ''100'' damage and kills the thing instantly. This proves to be exactly the right course of action as killing the Wendigo with fire restores life to everyone on the island.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Has a massive nerd-out on meeting a member of the Ashdrake family, who are renowned vampire hunters and who he read about in his youth, presuming their tales to be fictional.
* KungFuWizard: In addition to his [[BareFistedMonk martial arts]], he also knows some Elemental Manipulation.
* LastOfHisKind: Believed he was the last of his merman village ''and'' that of his monastary. [[spoiler:Or so he thought. Pontus Reil reveals that ThereIsAnother and indeed his brother Sheldon Rockspine is okay.]]
* LeeroyJenkins: Wouldn't be a character played by Lani without this happening sooner or later. And at the worst possible time too. See ItsPersonal above. Zito and Lani even namedrop the trope after the long fight that ensued because of this.
* LineOfSightName: WordOfGod states that Wake's name is about as good as his master could do, since he found him in the wake of the tides, and he has scales.
* MadeOfIron: Lani flat-out questions how Wake is even alive after Episode 4 where [[spoiler: he was drained of most of his blood directly after Ezra accidentally shot him in the head.]]
** [[spoiler: In Episode 7, Wake gets beat down by a 9-foot tall tiefling, narrowly avoiding death at every possible opportunity.]]
* MoralityChain: [[spoiler: He reveals that the One-ders have become this for him, and apart from realizing his quest had been AllForNothing, what made that the last straw that made him leave the party was the abrupt death of Gulfurr, and indirectly Yeldin, earlier in the chapter, and the brush with death Eloy had after the vampire ambush]].
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In Chapter 3, he comes to realize his decision making has done far more harm than good. [[spoiler: Because of that, he willingly leaves the party to continue his monk training with Nedra and Sheldon.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll:
** Is all too eager to blow any available caches of gunpowder as a distraction if the option is available. Is also not above joining Skrung in looting a crate full of gold bars from the camp. Also, see BloodKnight above.
** He can't get enough of Grammy's [[spoiler: pufferfish]] pie, even as it's numbing his tongue.
* OffhandBackhand: Manages to do this to an invisible vampire that was about to attack him.
* OnlySaneMan: In contrast to [[AxCrazy how Lani normally plays,]] Wake is probably the most normal one in the party when he's not holding a nat-1 induced IdiotBall.
** Character Development on the other hand, has soundly ripped this trope from his grasp in Chapter 2 and even moreso in Chapter 3.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Leaning hard on the "Fish" part of "Fish man."
* RedIsHeroic: His official art has him with shoulder length, bright red hair as well as prominent red fins on his arms and chin.
* RealityEnsues: Several times it happens to him. While he's very skilled in martial arts, [[spoiler: his lack of spiritual training and his isolation from society has made him an enormously awkward and immature fish man with way more power than he should have. Power he could lose very quickly. As such, most of his more reckless decisions have had seriously negative consequences on his relationships with some of his crewmates; like Risf, who fears him because of his pointless assault on Rufus the Grung, and Redd, who is furious that he made her pawn her book off to save her hide.]]
* SourOutsideSadInside: Wake can come off as angry and antagonistic, and a lot of it stems from pent-up fury and emotion over his monastary and his village being razed. Whenever he has to deal with emotions like this, he tends to get a lot more sullen and violent.
* StealthHiBye: Pulls a fantastic one on Skrung, sneaking up on the goblin as their respective parties reconvene.
* TheStoic: See Above. Wake is a lot quieter and subtler than his Player, and is arguably the quietest party member...unless he's getting shot in the back of the neck.
* TheStoner: Gets hooked on [[ToadLicking Yt's hallucinogenic mucus]] during the two week voyage back to Jahal Cove.
* SummonToHand: He keeps his spear tied to his person by rope so that he doesn't lose it when fighting at sea.
* SurvivorsGuilt: BIG TIME. He bears a lot of emotional baggage from both of his families being destroyed. This goes up a big notch when [[spoiler: Gulfur dies]], resulting in an abortive RoaringRampageOfRevenge and then feeling as if he's cursed to have those around him die.
* TalkToTheFist: He tends to just haul off and slug people who sufficiently piss him off, such as Old Young Cletus and Theraday.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Uses a stick of dynamite against the [[spoiler: Abyssal]] Manmaw in Episode 5. Later gets a bag of explosive rune stones that he later uses on [[spoiler: the abyssal portal Viktor was trying to open, and some of the different heads from the resulting EldritchAbomination OneWingedAngel they end up fighting]].
* TrueCompanions: Despite how selfish he can act at times, [[spoiler: he fully affirms this in his temporary return to the party in Chapter 3, Part 13. While he thought nothing at first when they set sail, he admits that Ezra and Eloy, along with the rest of the One-Ders, have become some sort of new family for him. This trope also influenced his decision to leave after seeing said surrogate brothers having been put in danger one too many times, on top of Gulfurr's death, so that he can improve himself to protect them better.]]
* WeirdBeard: The red scruff on his chin that looks like a goatee is actually a fin.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: He doesn't seem to understand his feelings for Calliope, getting depressed when he finds out she'll be leaving the ship to serve as Vennin Island's ambassador and telling Ezra that being with her made him feel happier and calmer than he has in a long time.
* WhatTheHellHero: In Chapter 2 Session 14, he [[spoiler:runs off with a suit of magic armor, re-enraging the adolescent blue dragon the group had just appeased, leaving the rest of the team to deal with it]]. When they catch up, Redd is so enraged that she almost strangles Wake then and there[[note]]Though as Wake points out, what she was mad about -- giving up 12 years' worth of research to the dragon -- wasn't actually his fault at all[[/note]]; meanwhile, Eloy quietly remarks that he doesn't think he can trust Wake anymore, which Lani says hurt Wake way more than being choked did.
** Chapter 3 Session 5 opens with [[spoiler:Wake having a dream where his Sensei chews him out for his bursts of anger, saying that he didn't train Wake to become a berserker. He also sees Nedra with a disappointed look on her face and realizes that he's being a poor role model for her.]]
* WorthIt: Opines this after sneaking up on Skrung almost triggers a friendly fire incident.
* WouldntHurtAChild: When the group deals with a ship full of vampiric children, all of them have this attitude but Wake carries it further than the others, who start taking the more pragmatic view of "They're kids, but they're still trying to murder us" as the fight progresses.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: And behave as well; Lani lists Wake as 18, making him very young for someone who's lost two families.
* YouNoTakeCandle: Starts talking this way when his transformation into a deer impedes his speech, in order that Calliope can understand him and translate.
* YouRemindMeOfX: Nedra reminds Wake of himself when he was younger and angrier. It's implied to be part of why he teaches her.

[[folder:Ezra Lockwood]]
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ezra_1.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:Half elf, Half man, always up to no good...[[BornUnlucky assuming he can get a half-decent roll.]]]]
Grant's character, a Half-elf Rogue looking to build a troupe of entertainers. Technically captain of the ''Yeldin'', though he delegates most of the decision-making responsibility to Wake at first, and then to all of his crew. He takes on more of a leadership role as of chapter three.
----
* AntagonisticOffspring: His demeanor noticeably sours whenever his father is brought up. With the naming of his new ship, he makes it somewhat clearer that among his reasons for joining the Grand Design might also be getting back at his father.
* AuthorityInNameOnly: While technically the captain of his ship, Ezra is well aware that he reigns only at the mercy of his crew, and is careful to give suggestions rather than direct orders (which, incidentally, is how many real-life pirate crews operated). This applies even when he knows their antics have them in deep trouble, though he's much more forceful in his suggestions.
* ButtMonkey: While he's smarter than Eloy, he isn't as useful in a fight and has a serious case of bad luck going for him, as noted below.
* BoringButPractical: Carries a bag of ball bearings, which he can quickly spread across the floor in order to trip up opponents. This proves amazingly effective against a half-vampire paladin, who, thanks to a truly EpicFail from Zito, slips on the bearings, throws its cross weapon into the air, which then crashes through the floor of the ship and causes it to promptly sink to its death.
** Extends into how he levels up. While Eloy and Wake get fantastic powers, he just ups his proficiency bonuses and skills.
* BornUnlucky: In contrast to Wake, he's most likely to fall victim to bad luck. Episode 3 alone sees him get lost in a shifting maze tunnel, accidentally clotheslined by his teammate and nearly killed by a giant macaw. Episode 4 continues the trend with a string of failures in negotiation, survival and combat, culminating in [[spoiler:accidentally shooting Wake in the back of the head with his crossbow during a boss fight.]] Episode 5 has him [[spoiler: accidentally setting off several explosives in Yeldin cave, with Wake again on the recieving end.]]
* TheCaptain: The ''de jure'' leader of the One-ders, by virtue of being TheFace and a good {{Mediator}}, though often defers to Wake's advice in most important matters and generally listens to the concerns and ideas of the others. His Character development on the other hand has also forced him to be more of an authority figure when egos rise.
* CharacterAlignment: Per WordOfGod from Grant during a Q&A after Chapter 2 episode 5, Ezra is LawfulNeutral despite being a conman rogue. [[LampshadeHanging Even Grant is a bit confused on how that happened,]] but it has to do with Ezra taking a [[JustLikeRobinHood Robin Hood-esque]] approach to con work.
* CharacterDevelopment: Has gone from a somewhat inept con man to TheFace of the crew and the one who mediates most disputes, both between crew members and with outsiders, before they get out of hand.
** Best summed up in the Chapter 2 Finale, when the morality of his crew experimenting on drug making is brought up, Ezra makes it clear he prioritizes his crew bonding, even through this, and money-making as a secondary priority.
* CombatPragmatist: As a Rogue, he prefers to use stealth and various tools in combat. In a Q&A Zito even said Ezra was his favourite character in combat situations for this reason. While [[BareFistedMonk Wake]] and [[MagicMusic Eloy]] to a lesser extent have fairly [[BoringButPractical simple, predictable ways of fighting]], he generally has NO idea what Ezra will try to do when a battle starts.
* ConMan: His modus operandi. In episode 1, he takes Eloy under his wing, in part to try and exploit his musical talent, though he does genuinely view the centaur as a friend and apprentice with exploring the world. Also colors his otherwise genuine friendship with Wake and the others. He also uses his scam skill in episode 7 to make a normal metal bell seem like an enchanted item.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Invoked by Zito, who called Episode 6 "the Ezra episode". While not the singular focus of the episode, the main action at the camp heavily relies on Ezra's specific skillset.
* DaddyIssues: Justified in that his previous life of luxury was stolen from him by his father, and while he's kept it under wraps for awhile now, Chapter 3 has slowly revealed that they do bug him more than he'd care to admit.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Ezra has a habit of doing things without thinking some of the finer details through.
** During a fight in Venon Island, he attacks one of the Wendigo's mooks with an explosive arrow; said mook proceeds to charge into him before the arrow detonates, which gets him hurt in the explosion.
** While at Lott's lair, he tries to haggle using some of his glass beans, and decides to show their effects in a cramped underground tunnel, despite never using the beans before. This leads to what can best be described as a crystal beanstalk with eyes shooting lasers at everyone in the vicinity, before Wake kills it.
** While bargaining with Pabsvadri, Ezra offers him his fire absorbing ring, stating that it would make Pabsvadri immune to fire. Pabsvadri then asks them to prove that statement by having Redd shoot him with the strongest fire spell she could make, leading to the ring being destroyed due to absorbing too much fire, and Ezra being burnt.
** When he ends up facing a double of himself that mimics his every move, he decides to drop his beans, ball bearings, and explosive arrows in the hopes that when his double is defeated, he'll be able to double his supply of them. However, when the copy is killed, all of his things disappear, so then the ground where he dropped his stuff basically becomes a minefield.
** In Chapter 3, at the ''very'' end of Part 18, he attempts to peek out of a magical chest without alerting their target ''and'' without telling anyone beforehand...and promptly rolls a 7.
** Assuming the Sharkbowl Ooze is like any other water-based critter, he used a shock dagger on it
* DressingAsTheEnemy: In episode 6 he dons a naval uniform in order to infiltrate their camp and gather intel.
* DumpStat: His Strength stat hasn't budged from the bog-standard 10, which is not great for a rogue, because the STR-based athletics checks are usually something Rogues are supposed to be able to do pretty easily and he generally fails them every time.
* FailedASpotCheck: In Episode 5, Ezra fails to identify a mimic and is completely oblivious to giant spider eggs that are right in front of him.
* {{Familiar}}: Wins a Crawling Claw, the reanimated hand of a murderer, in a dice game and adopts it for his own, naming it Scaphy.
* FatalFlaw: His curiosity tends to put him in harm's way more often than not.
* GuileHero: Theoretically his role, though arguably has had the least success at it among the party, see above.
* HatOfAuthority: After Chapter 1, he buys a top hat which serves to mark him as the leader of the troupe, and also as captain of the ship. He takes things even further in Chapter 3 when he kills the leader of a Grung tribe and takes its headdress to [[KlingonPromotion claim its title]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Tries to invoke this with Eloy in order to get him to join his troupe.
* HitMeDammit: Offers Wake a chance to punch him in the face, both to make some fake injuries look more convincing and to get payback for all the time Wake got hurt because of him.
* ICallItVera: His custom-made GrapplingHookPistol is called Clink-back, after the trigger word which causes it to magically retract itself.
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: His aim, quite frankly, ''sucks.'' He's accidentally shot an ally in the back twice now. Onslow barely got his hide pierced and just shrugged it off. Wake, who took a bolt directly to the back of the head, was a bit worse off.
-->'''Wake:''' Owwwwww…
** Happens again in Episode 5, where [[spoiler: Wake is blown backwards by dynamite Ezra accidentally set off with his crossbow.]]
--> '''Wake:''' WHAT IS IT WITH THAT CROSSBOW?
** Happens yet again when he aims at a shark that is harassing Wake, and predictably hits Wake instead. Wake manages to avoid damage by using his monk powers to perform an ArrowCatch.
** Taken to a ludicrous level in Season 3 Episode 3 during the fight with [[TheBrute Mr. Slaps]], where Grant rolls a Nat 1 that causes his crossbow bolt to explode in his face...and Wake gets caught in the blast because he's nearby.
** His luck with the GrapplingHookGun is no better. When he first tries it out, Ezra ends up literally shooting Legitimate Larry in the face; [[GoodThingYouCanHeal if he wasn't an elemental it would have killed him]]. Larry warily lets Ezra have another shot...and he promptly hits Larry again. Then during Chapter 3, Ezra ends up accidentally killing the king of the grungs by hitting him with the hook and throwing him into a pile of crates.
* ImpoverishedPatrician: Was born into nobility, but his family's wealth was swindled away by his mysterious father. He worked as a fisher for several years before deciding to pursue his dream of leading an entertainment troupe and also seeking revenge against his father.
* IronicEcho: In Chapter 1, Skrung remarks that he doesn't consider any of the group to be his friends. Later on Ezra gets in a good dig against Skrung and remarks "Maybe if you had any friends in this group they'd defend you, but..."
** In Chapter Three, he gets convinced to allow Poliffi aboard for a significant discount from what he was asking. When a massive storm breaks out and the portholes are spraying water all over the inside of the ship and she complains, he remarks that paying for the executive suite would've likely allowed her to avoid it.
* ItsPersonal: [[spoiler: Episode 9 reveals he has a vendetta against Admiral Lockwood for "ruining his life" and he's out for revenge.]]
* KillItWithFire: He's very fond of attempting this, from [[MolotovCocktail Molotoving]] a Stirge nest to [[ArrowsOnFire igniting a crossbow bolt]] with burning oil. He later gets the hang of using exploding crossbow bolts to great effect, though they have a tendency to hurt his own allies when they go off.
* LoveableRogue: What he seems to be going for but more often then not, he fails at the "Rogue" part.
* MasterOfDisguise: Many of his skills involve impersonating other people, real or fictional. He has a disguise kit to this end.
* {{Mediator}}: Works for this between Wake and the pirates in Episode 6, frequently talking them down before tensions rise. He's taken on this role more and more since becoming captain of the Yeldin.
* NiceHat: As part of his preparations for venturing to sea aboard ''Yeldin'', he buys a very fine top hat which becomes his de facto captain's hat.
* NonActionGuy: Prefers diplomacy, or at least subterfuge and stealth, to conflict, and balks at the idea of open violence. That said, as a member of a D&D party, when the chips do fall he's perfectly able to hold his own.
* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught: Gets away with helping Wake win a magically rigged carnival game.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Ezra gets ''really'' into the atmosphere and festivities at the Fine Day Boardwalk. He also uses the opportunity to shill his planned comedy troupe.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: [[spoiler: When it comes to bringing up Admiral Lockwood, Ezra's usual demeanor drops from jokey to dour. It also drops when Gulfur's death is revealed.]]
* OnlySaneMan: For much of Chapter 2, Ezra jumps deeply into this due to Wake making much more rash decisions.
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler: The reason he's dead set on finding his absent father, Admiral Deram Lockwood, who basically knocked up his wealthy mother and quickly left her along with her fortune.]]
* ThePowerOfActing:
** Thanks to some regular grunts rolling natural 1's, Ezra is able to convince several men from the Navy that this section of the island is cursed.
** Once again in the Chapter 2 Finale, after Wake unintentionally offends the merchant who crafted Eloy's cotton candy machine into raising its price, Ezra successfully pretends to be an unrelated customer who wants to buy the machine for himself and fools the merchant long enough for Ezra to buy the machine...before handing it off to Wake and the trio scramming.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Ezra, in spite of himself, prefers to listen to the crew and takes his captaincy seriously once he gets it, even if it gives him headaches with what his crew usually gets up to.
* {{Revenge}}: [[spoiler: Implied to be his original goal upon finding Admiral Lockwood. Eventually, Ezra states to Ave Lo that he now just wants to meet him. After the session, Grant confirms that Ezra's goal was indeed originally to get back at his father, but now, after experiencing ThePowerOfFriendship through his adventures, has dropped the revenge part and now simply just wants to ask why he did what he did]].
* ShipperOnDeck: Hasn't said it outright, but clearly enjoyed putting Calliope and Wake together to go do things, and shot down any idea that ''he'' was interested in her when it was brought up. Slightly subverted that it was all unintentional, but quickly picks up on it when attempting to [[spoiler: console Wake when Calliope parts ways with the party still unaware of Wake's feelings]].
* SociopathicHero: He's at least a bit of one, according to Grant. In-game, this is often played for laughs but is also portrayed realistically, as Ezra easily gets along with people but easily disregards their feelings if it's convenient for himself, and only shows concern for others if it will reflect on his reputation.
* StealthExpert: He finally gets to fulfill the "Rogue" part in [[spoiler: the FinalBoss fight, generally picking off the creature's health as he remains hidden]].
* TakeThat: In Chapter 3, Ezra names the crew's new ship ''Deram's Folly'' as a slam against his father.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Episode 6, for once, constantly has Grant rolling much more decently than usual, combined with Zito rolling badly this time. Considering that it was Ezra's time to shine, this turned out very fortunate for the party.
** Once more during [[spoiler: the Chapter One FinalBoss]]. In contrast to [[spoiler: [[CloseRangeCombatant Wake]] constantly having to deal with constant psychic damage, Eloy getting enthralled into carving up his allies, Yawgurick being turned to stone, and the naval officers knocked out at the start of the fight, Ezra manages to stay relatively unscathed by a wide margin by the end of the fight.]]
* TheToothHurts: Got his teeth knocked out by an over-enthusiastic Nedra during their first meeting. [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Thankfully, Theraday was on hand to give him a healing potion]].
* VerbalBackspace: Has a tendency to do this when he realizes what he's saying sounds overly egotistical or selfish, such as when he was suggesting to Wake that any slaves their crew frees can work for their entertainment company, before hastily adding that this would only be at their own volition.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Grant adds a fear of bugs to Ezra's character sheet after his bad experience with spiders in Yeldin Cave. Upgrades it to Giant Macaws after running afoul of a Dire Macaw.
** Also calls attention to it later in the campaign as he almost gets mauled by a dire tiger, noting in the grand scheme of things he's lived through a lot worse than giant birds and bugs since then.

[[folder:Eloy of the Stonkydonk]]
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eloy.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:Cute as a button, Dumb as nails. Plays a mean flute.]]
Ben's character, a donkey-centaur bard whose only desire in life is to make others happy. Later, he picks up the goal of gaining the badges and skills of all of La Cirunus' Bard Colleges. Is usually given the position of Ship's Fool or Ship's Bard.
----
* AchievementsInIgnorance: His explanations on events frequently come with the party facepalming in bewilderment.
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: After admitting his unpleasant feelings about cervine centaurs, he promises that this is his personal baggage to carry. Redd comments that carrying baggage is what he's been doing all along, as he's been serving as the group's packhorse. After a moment, Eloy congratulates her on the joke and gives her a high-five.
* {{Adorkable}}: His bright and eternally positive demeanor make it impossible to not like him.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: He doesn't believe that his bardic magic is actually magic, believing (for example) that his Feylight spell is just him attracting [[WillOTheWisp Will-o'-the-Wisps]] with his music. This seems to stem largely from the fact that the village elders all told him magic was evil. He grows out of this towards the end of chapter one.
* BadLiar: Admits to being this early on.
* BeyondTheImpossible: [[spoiler: With Dissonant Whispers, he's managed to ''scare'' goblin squids and ''ghosts'' to ''death''. He decides to use this as the inspiration for his bard pen name. Specifically, he sacred the ghost so badly that it's master tried to hold it back. The ghost fought to escape and with no body to return to, it dies as it breaks its bounds.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: While he can do this to people, he got on the end of this by the worm head of the Chapter one FinalBoss and made to attack his party.
* BreakTheCutie: Goes through a brief bout of this is at the start of episode 4 after [a bird causes him to break his flute. This episode also sees him get truly angry for the first time, as well as score his first direct kill.
* CallToAdventure: Wake is in for personal reasons while Ezra is in it for glory. Eloy on the other hand, wants to see the world and help others.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Episode 2 sees him drunk after one sip. In Chapter 2 episode 12 he cleverly overcomes this limitation by placing a magical suggestion on ''himself'' to stay sober during a meeting with one of the pirate lords, later to lose it and become instantly hammered after he takes damage and loses his concentration.
* CatchPhrase:
** [[BigStupidDoodooHead "Hey you big dummy!"]], which Ben uses to start off most of his [[IShallTauntYou Vicious Mockery]] attacks, to the point of being a RunningGag.
** On the other side of the equation, "I believe in you!" when he gives a Bardic Inspiration.
* CharacterAlignment: Per WordOfGod from Ben during a Q&A after Chapter 2 episode 5, Eloy is ChaoticGood.
* CharacterDevelopment: Thanks to Wake and Ezra, he's grown out of his "magic is always evil" mindset. He's also learned to be more assertive and, while still trying to be friendly to people and give them a chance, is more willing to be sharp-tongued towards people who REALLY make themselves unlikable. For that matter, he's also gets much better at snarking and has become more prone to doing it, from being more subtle in his Vicious Mockery to be willing to throw shades on his friends, albeit good-naturedly.
* CharmPerson: He has this spell but doesn't like using it because in the past, he tried to [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul make people happy]], only for them to be pissed off at him when the spell wore off. In Episode 8 he demonstrates the spell by [[MundaneUtility compelling Ezra to give him a high-five every time he raises his hand]]. [[spoiler:After being on the receiving end of a charm spell during the Chapter One FinalBoss battle and coming close to killing some of his allies, he's even more resolved never to use such spells unless in dire need.]]
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Or rather, Conditioned to Accept Mortal Peril. Eloy is ''startlingly'' okay with people meeting untimely demises or being close to it. When he is informed that [[spoiler: Yt is most likely an entity on par or even greater than the [[{{Kaiju}} other dragons]] the Wonders have encountered and could likely end the entire crew on a whim,]] Eloy just shrugs it off, noting that he's been living in the shadow (both figurative and literal) of incredibly powerful entities that could end him with a thought for his entire life. Out of character, Ben notes that Eloy basically can't conceive of a life where he ''isn't'' in constant danger of being killed by some god-like entity.
-->'''Eloy:''' "You know how many of my friends it's killed with rock slides? Zero. That makes it ''way'' better than the last big powerful thing I had to live with."
* CoolHelmet: Unintentionally gains the mithril-plated helmet of a suit of armor Wake, Skrung, and Risf find in the armory they eventually blow up, the helmet landing right at his feet. He decided later to feed it to Yeldin.
* DeepSouth: Has a thick hillbilly accent.
* {{Dissimile}}: When he attempts to explain how he knows his way around in the jungle.
-->'''Eloy:''' Jungles are really just mountains, but with more plants and more flat.
* DoomedHometown: Parodied. Apparently rock-slides are such a common occurrence in the mountain village where he's from that they pray to the mountain not to kill them with rocks.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Claims he can eat all kinds of stuff due to having three stomachs, but this is more of an InformedAbility than anything else.
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: To another fantasy race! The Asinine Centaurs are very much like dwarves in their mountain living...and vicious opinions of all other centaur races. Though WordOfGod says they're more like the alternative to halflings.
* FantasticRacism: To any other kind of centaur.
* FishOutOfWater: As a donkey centaur, he has no natural place in the seafaring world, though he gets along surprisingly well by sheer charm. Ben explains he chose the race for this very reason.
* FullFrontalAssault: Ben explains in the post-Episode 10 Q&A that Eloy doesn't wear clothes on his donkey half, thus his junk is always on full display.
* GodIsEvil: In a very weird, comedic sense. His people worship "Ol' Lady Big Rock Mountain", the personification of their mountainous homeland; Eloy himself admits that most of their prayers to her boil down to "Please don't [[RocksFallEveryoneDies kill us all with falling rocks]]." Early religious texts from Eloy's tribe refer to her simply as "bitch", and the prayer recited when someone dies in a rockslide is "Would you please just fuckin' STOP?!"
* GoingCommando: Eloy is a centaur, so it's canonical that he does not wear pants.
* GoodIsDumb: Eloy is a sweet guy but by god, he's not bright in the slightest.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Eloy rarely swears, and if he wants to he usually falls into this.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Vicious Mockery may be him simply hurling insults (and fairly tame ones at that) at enemies, but it's affect of dealing psychic damage and forcing enemies to roll with disadvantage has lead to some pretty impressive results. Such as forcing a Dire Macaw's Sonic Scream attack to backfire so horribly it nearly blew it's own brains out
* HellISThatNoise: Eloy gets a set of bagpipes in episode 7. They would be a great benefit to his magic if he knew how to play them correctly.
* HorrifyingTheHorror: His Dissonant Whispers spell forces a target that fails its save to flee from him. This has been used to take the wind out of the sails of some pretty tremendous creatures: first an Abyssal treant, then a Wendigo that was the boss of a three-episode adventure.
* HypocrisyNod: In spite of Eloy's issues with magic, Now that Eloy is at least marginally proficient in Bardic magic in Episode 6, it's commented frequently on how long he can keep thinking it's just coincidence that playing his flute causes things to happen.
-->'''Zito:''' It's gonna be fun to try and rationale how he's fucking ignorant to it.
* IncompletelyTrained: Eloy can play music masterfully as a self-taught musician...but he can't read music, which is why he wants to go to the Bard College.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Can sometimes put his hoof in his mouth when it comes to two-legged species. And deer. Especially deer.
** Also extends to more personal matters like greiving, since his species apparently doesn't think about it that hard [[RocksFallEveryoneDies since everyone's dying from rock slides anyway.]]
* IShallTauntYou: His usual combat move is ''Vicious Mockery'', which is quite literally hurling insults at enemies.
** Gains an upgrade from defeating the College of Satire's dean, Seismic Insult.
* LimitedWardrobe: In Chapter 2 Ben reveals that Eloy's been wearing the same basic peasant gear for the entire trip, letting it get increasingly dirty and tattered.
* MagicMusic: Though he initially denies it due to his tribe's aversion to all things arcane, he possesses the ability to channel various magical effects through his music.
* MagneticHero: Due to a combination of his unusual race drawing attention and his rural charm, he finds it easy to make friends and allies. The party initially formed because they converged on him either out of curiosity or a desire to swindle him.
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: Lamented by Ben out of character after betting a gold bar on Wake and winning. Has only gotten worse over time as he's by ''far'' the most sensible member of the crew with his money and has several ''thousand'' to his name, plus precious gemstones, that he's never, ever spent.
--> '''Ben''': This is easily the richest any character I've ever played has ever been, and he doesn't understand the value of money.
* TheMark: His naive nature makes him a target of some of the more opportunistic characters.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: By fantasy standards, anyway. In his quest to stay on good terms with as many gods as he knows, while not outright worshiping them, from his perspective, the statues of various gods, particularly Urdoth, who may or may not be the same as Ol' Lady Big Rock Mountain, seem to move. At one point, he thinks he sees Urdoth's statue [[GiveMeASign flashing him a thumbs up]]. No one else sees the statues move, thought.
* NeverSayDie: Eloy doesn't use words that imply harm on others, referring to murders and killing as "do/doing a wicked."
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: He actually swears and snarls at AJ when the snotty elf manages to push his buttons a little too much, stating outright "Guess how many [[PrecisionFStrike shits]] I give?" about the elf's misfortunes.
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: He's an Asinine Centaur, a sub-race with a donkey-like lower half.
* OverlyLongName: His God/Hometown "Old Lady Big Rock Mountain" (said like it was one word).
* ThePollyanna: It takes a lot to bring him down. When AJ manages to do so with his abrasive personality, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Eloy actually snaps at him, even swearing a bit]]. It's also the reason [[spoiler: Wake admits that Eloy had become a sort of his MoralityChain]].
* PungeonMaster: A necessary result of his being played by hbi2k, with the results often being deliberately painful. Many of his puns are so meta or rely on external references that their canonicity is questionable.
* RocksFallEveryoneDies: His hometown, Old Lady Big Rock Mountain is this trope in a nutshell.
* ScrewYouElves: The island of the deer story has Eloy saying some unkind things towards deer (bordering on FantasticRacism) as a result of having to put up with cervine centaurs in the past. Ben later clarifies that cervines are basically the centaur equivalent of Elves (read: incredibly egotistical, arrogant, and condescending) and Eloy enjoys taking every opportunity to take the wind out of their sails, but he doesn't have anything against mundane deer or faun-people like their new ally Calliope. (He originally did have something against Calliope, thinking she was a cervine centaur without her back half. However the confusion was soon cleared up)
* ShipTease: Eloy seems to have a crush on Redd, as seen in Chapter 2 Session 17, where he teasingly says that she's the only red thing he considers precious, and says that if he'd known how important her notes were he would have gladly traded his jokebook (which was a gift from his father) instead. In Session 18 when he [[spoiler:gets stoned thanks to Yt]] and sees Grammy as a beautiful mermaid, Ben says "Thank you, Fishy Redd!"
** In Chapter 3 Session 4, when he sees that the Grungs stole Redd's notes when they attacked her, he very deliberately recovers the book and hangs onto it so he can return it to her.
* SupportPartyMember: Fitting for a Bard, Eloy in combat prefers to use his music to confuse, disorient, and debuff foes. As such he barely uses the bow and sword that he carries.
* TragicKeepsake: Apparently, his flute belonged to a friend who was killed in a rockslide.
* TranquilFury: Dips into this when a bird breaks his beloved flute.
--> '''Eloy''': (In a shaking voice) [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness I-I'm not accustomed to the feelings I am feeling right now.]] I am very angry at this bird. Guys, I want to do bad things to this bird. Ezra, I want you to shoo that bird away before I do something murderous to it.
** Happens again when AJ continues to pester him.
--> '''Eloy''': Ezra, I'm about to do a wicked.
* WallCrawl: Parodied, as he has a strong climb skill. and he practically [[OffscreenTeleportation warps]] on top of a capsized ship with a fantastic roll.
* WeAreAsMayflies: Slightly parodied because of with DoomedHometown, saying that no Asinine-Centaur has died of natural causes and he has no idea how long Asinine-Centaurs live because of it.
* WordSaladHumor: When he gets stoned from licking Yt, Ben spends the duration of the effect (at Zito's instruction) saying ridiculous and screamingly hilarious non-sequiturs.

[[folder:Dagon Huxley]]
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dagon.png]]
[[caption-width-right:350:The Wraith of Eburkal himself. [[DarkIsNotEvil No need to look so intimidated]].]]
Lani's second character, introduced in Chapter 3. He is a fallen aasimar hexblade with a talking sword and a silver tongue who has trouble getting work as a member of the Rite Adventurer's guild. Ezra takes a shine to him and he joins the Oneders for their mission in Eburkal for the Volition in hopes of gaining better standing within the Adventurer's Guild. He takes up the position of Helmsman.
----
* AntiAntiChrist: His very existence is anathema to other aasimar, his blood is caustic to them. That said, he doesn't seem to be anything more than bitter and unhappy with the Kals.
* BoxedCrook: While not technically a criminal, his situation helping the One-ders on this mission has all the trappings of one. He's even given the job while handcuffed to a chair.
* BookDumb: Even more so than [[IdiotHero Wake!]] Dagon's Intelligence Stat is so low that it has a Negative-1 modifier, meaning that Dagon is a capable of rolling an ''[[BeyondTheImpossible Unnatural ZERO]]'' on an intelligence check! Naturally, he manages to do so within mere hours of joining the party.
* CoolSword: A talking one that gives him warlock powers.
* CowboyCop: He's one of the more difficult hirees in the adventuring guild due to his tendency to go overboard, often getting his pay docked and his name taken off of the list of hireable people as punishment.
* DumpStat: In stark contrast to all his fairly high stats, Dagon's INT score is an 8.
* DarkerAndEdgier: His very nature as a fallen aasimar and the very abilities he controls makes him way edgier than Wake is on the surface. Lani immediately lampshades this while he's describing a skill.
** LighterAndSofter: Lani spends a good deal of time claiming Dagon is actually this compared to Wake since he's not on a revenge quest.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Everything about his appearance, origins, and powers suggest a major villain. Instead, he's just a guy looking for work.
* EmbarrassingNickname: How he feels about his title as The Wraith of Eburkal since he wanted to be known as something else.
* {{Foil}}: To Wake. He's a man with incredible power and poor impulse control, but unlike Wake who has immense spiritual power, Dagon is a fallen aasimar and is barely spiritual at all. Also unlike Wake, he is bombastic and charismatic whereas Wake is awkward and sullen, in contrast to their outward appearances.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Despite his low intellect, he is usually quick to pick up on things due to being played by Lani who is both intelligent and an experienced gamer. Lani explains that it's Chic, his sword, giving Dagon advice, but this explanation doesn't always make sense in the context to the story. Can be explained by his high charisma and just straight of lying his ass off to get answers while pretending to know what's going on. [[note]]This is technically possible given that science shows that pathological liars do have lower amounts of grey matter and more white matter in their pre-frontal cortex than their honest counterparts. While both Grey matter (basically storage space) and white matter (which links the storage together) are important, the pre-frontal cortex is meant for complex thought and problem solving. Having more white matter there may make people better liars and help them make more creative lies, but losing the grey matter means they may start losing their ability to think ahead or make all their lies make sense within context of each other as well as lose problem solving ability and higher reasoning making them "dumber".[[/note]]
* HandsomeLech: Uses his high charisma stat almost exclusively to hit on women.
* HorrifyingTheHorror: Somehow, he's managed to freak out ''Gentle'' of all people.
** On the flipside, Dagon's [[SentientWeapon sword]] [[EldritchAbomination Gorbachik]] ends up on the receiving end of this trope from, [[{{MemeticBadass}} fittingly enough]], [[AlwaysABiggerFish Grammy]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's nice enough, but he can be real pain in the ass at times and very trigger happy. That said, he openly states that he TRIES to not be a jerk, and throughout his first appearance alone, Eloy repeatedly compares him favorably against [[{{Jerkass}} AJ]], who Dagon otherwise reminds him of.
* MeaningfulName: "Dagon" was a Mesopotamian ocean deity who was reinvented by Creator/HPLovecraft as an EldritchAbomination. This Dagon lives in an OceanPunk setting and has ties to an eldritch being via his sword. Huxley, meanwhile, has been revealed by Lani to be named after the Houndoom they caught in their Soul Silver Nuzlocke, Hux, nicknamed The Motherfux.
* MrFanservice: His art matches his 20 in Charisma. He is a ''handsome'' man.
* RedBaron: "The Wraith of Eburkal". He wanted to be the Specter, but it didn't catch on.
* SoleSurvivor: Of his old crew, according to himself.
* SoulCuttingBlade: His blade drinks souls that he cuts through. What makes it less of an evil weapon is that it's victim doesn't have to be a pure one, it just has to be a soul.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Of Wake. He even has a shockingly similar path to Rite as the Lockwood Oneders, according to his story.
* TalkingSword: His weapon speaks, just in a language no one but he can hear and understand. Dagon is often in an argument with it.
* TriggerHappy: When faced with a monkey slightly inconveniencing Eloy, his first idea is to just pull a pistol and blow it to pieces.

!!NPC Crew Members, living or dead
[[folder: ''Yeldin'' Crew Members]]
The crew the oneders sail with for most of Chapters 1, 2 and 3. A RagtagBunchOfMisfits with plenty of TeethClenchedTeamwork abound, but the crew manages to get things done.

!! The Crew as a whole provides examples of:
* PutOnABus: The entire crew arrangement in general was temporary, just in different ways. A consequence of joining the adventurer's guild in Rite is that ''everyone'' has to, so they all have to fill out spools of paperwork before they can rejoin the crew.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Some crewmembers like Wake and Redd barely get along, but when the chips are down they all manage to work together pretty well.

!!Grammy
--> "SECRET INGREDIEEEEEENT!"
Initially the creepy, ancient-looking chef and server of the ''Voltun''. She's taken a shine to the player characters, often giving them food and challenging them to discover her secret ingredients. Currently official cook of the ''Yeldin''.
----
* AccidentalMarriage: Though her idea of "marriage" is being the cook onboard the ''Yeldin'' and not bringing any direct harm to the crew, her wrapping sea-weed around Wake and Eloy's wrists apparently makes them her "husbands".
** She also has a much more adversarial relationship with Ezra not just because she weirds him out, but because they aren't "married"
* AmbiguouslyHuman: She may in fact be a Sea Hag. Nobody knows for sure. She apparently has functioning gills in her neck, though.
* AutobotsRockOut: Plays a mean guitar solo finale of the One-ders' makeshift show for the Navy that Zito can only describe as "the best rendition of Freebird out there"
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Chapter 3 shows some signs that Grammy does actually care about the group; when [[spoiler:she finds out that Gulfurr is dead]], Zito says that she's legitimately upset and in the next episode she tries to comfort Wake over his feeling responsible for what happened.
** In Chapter 3, Episode 8, Risf reveals that she gives him hot chocolate whenever he feels like it because of his condition.
* BerserkButton: Do NOT mention what the secret ingredient is to anyone who hasn't had the soup.
* BizarreAlienBiology: When she gets accidentally hit by a thrown cannonball, she bleeds green, removes part of her spine without long-term damage, and recovers by absorbing metal shavings.
* BreakoutCharacter: Was written by Zito as a one-off character, but became very popular with both players and fans, resulting in her making several reappearances and eventually being hired by the party as the cook aboard ''Yeldin''.
* CatchPhrase: "Secret ingredient!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She acts bizzare and is clearly unhinged. For example, she chained herself to the floor and claims she's being held there against her will.
* CordonBleughChef: Her meals are not awful but their main ingredients, [[spoiler: seagull and pufferfish, respectively]], leave a lot to be desired.
** Goes the extra step beyond by [[spoiler: using Pistachio the Tabaxi as an ingredient in a Stew.]]
** MasochistsMeal: The pie she offers the boys in her reappearance? [[spoiler: It's made from pufferfish]]. Wake's lucky to bypass the poison and even constitution-wise benefit from it, as does Skrung. Ezra and Eloy get really bad heartburn instead.
** Later, she makes Eloy some tomato, healing potion (with broke bits of the bottle still in it), and [[spoiler:mandrake]] soup. It's good, but the screaming is a bit off-putting.
* ExpansionPackPast: In Chapter 2 episode 11, she reveals she worked as a roadie for a band in the past (naturally, the Secret Ingredients), and helps set up Eloy's stage with great skill.
* HorrifyingTheHorror: Her presence gives pause to various beings of great power, including Dagon's sword, which houses the essence of an EldritchAbomination.
* GuardianEntity: The fluff for Eloy's Counter Spell is Grammy appearing out of his Shadow to absorb the spell. Eloy has also used Grammy's name as his Healing Word when unable to use his flute, and she appeared from the wall behind him when he cast a fear spell under the same circumstances. This prompts Lani to claim that Grammy has become Eloy's [[Anime/JojosBizareAdventure Stand]].
* MadeASlave: Subverted. She isn't [[CloudCuckoolander despite her insistence to the contrary.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Nobody seems to even know what her real name is.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In Chapter 3 Episode 1, she outright refuses to cook the torpedo snails infesting the ship and asks Ezra if he's out of his mind for suggesting it. When Ezra expresses surprise at the idea of Grammy being wary of something, she explains that there are plenty of things in the sea to be wary of: some you fear, some you respect, and some (like the snails) you just straight-up revile.
* PetTheDog: Almost literally; the group picked up a dog on Bulkard and Grammy takes a real shine to it, carrying it around with her on the ''Yeldin''. When the group worries that she's going to cook it, she gets defensive and says "Dogs are for companionship, not cooking!"
* RuleOfFunny: Why does she cook such weird things? Why is her biology the way it is? How does she utilise OffscreenTeleportation so well? How can she end the talent show with a stunning rendition of Freebird in a universe where neither Music/LynyrdSkynyrd or electric guitars exist? Because it's funny!
* SpeakOfTheDevil: Has an uncanny ability to either appear or be heard just offscreen whenever she or her secret ingredients are mentioned. Zito remarks with humor that nobody questions this. Best {{Lampshaded}} by Eloy to Onslow when, [[ItMakesSenseInContext after the gator man has accidentally earned Grammy's ire and is cowering as he hides from her]], he has this to say to [[SarcasmMode comfort]] him:
->'''Eloy, ever so cheerfully:''' Onslow, you know there's nowhere to hide! She's everywhere!
->(''Zito-as-Onslow further grimaces in utter fear.'')
* ToServeMan: Makes no bones about the fact that she has no problem cooking sapient creatures, and even suggests she's willing to commit murder to improve her cooking. However, she draws the line at cute puppies.

!!Skrung/[[spoiler:Denzel Balphorquim]]
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skrungresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Do you have leads? DO YOU HAVE LEADS!?"]]

A perpetually angry goblin first encountered by the team aboard the ''Voltun'' in Episode 1. He butts heads often with the player characters, and seems to be hiding some sort of secret.
----
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: In Episode 8 he mocks Ezra [[IShouldWriteABookAboutThis writing the crew's exploits with the intent of turning them into plays]], saying that it'll work as long as it's "all the lies." When Ezra replies by jotting down "And Skrung was helpful", Skrung concedes the point and doesn't even get angry like he usually does when the guys mock him.
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:In Chapter 2 Episode 18, the group finds out that while they were in the Unwitnessed Kingdom, Skrung lost his right hand when a gremlin made his magic gun explode. Ezra suggested getting a mechanical arm with a built-in gun to replace it, and Skrung is actually down with the idea.]]
* BizarreTasteInFood: At Rite, he's shown to frequently down a concoction containing a mixture of coffee, alcohol, and cigarettes, which he says "gives it texture". [[ForeignQueasine Apparently a goblin thing]] as Mr. Large, a bugbear in the same company, is shown to enjoy cigarettes as flavoring.
* BrilliantButLazy: Skrung can actually make for a pretty good entertainer when he's properly motivated...the problem is that A): he has a nasty personality and B): he's so motivated by ''one'' thing that it's near impossible for the crew to actually get him to do it. Wake finally gets him to do some performing by bribing him with an item.
* ButtMonkey: Episode 2 starts off with him in handcuffs and a baby leash. When released from the leash, he lunges for Ezra after he made a quip, only to crash face-first into a globe.
* DrowningMySorrows: After [[spoiler: Gulfurr's death and being briefly kidnapped]], he spends the rest of the following day drinking terrifying amounts of whiskey.
* FireForgedFriends: Skrung becomes this to the main trip and the rest of the One-ders following their Jahal Cove and Southern Island adventures. He still finds amusement at the others' expense, but he does freely work alongside them.
* TheHomewardJourney: [[spoiler: It turns out Skrung has been on one of these for a ''very'' long time. His portal ring, which is the only way he can go back to the Goblin Kingdom, was stolen by a Redcap. Since they're attuned to individuals and stealing one from another goblin wouldn't work, his only hope is tracking down that redcap and taking the ring back. He has poured billions of gold into this with no avail.]]
* KingIncognito: [[spoiler: Discussed. In episode 8, it's mentioned that Skrung bears a resemblance to the Goblin King. The group questions whether he might be a prince, or the king himself in disguise, but it ultimately get dropped as other topics arise. For his part Skrung denies it, asking why royalty would be mucking around doing shitty odd-jobs.]]
** [[spoiler: He turns out to actually be the forgotten prince -- [[NotHyperbole literally forgotten]] since his father is so senile and easily manipulated that he doesn't recognize his own son without the signet ring that identifies him.]]
** [[spoiler:Not "Incognito" so much after Chapter 2 Session 12, where Mr. Lott of the Fine Day Boardwalk Co. blatantly and casually spills the beans in front of the group.]]
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It's established in episode 8 that goblins often carry magic tools they can use to open portals so they can pull [[StealthHiBye Stealth Hi/Byes]]. It's discussed this may be how Skrung can stealthily exit situtations, but when asked point-blank he denies it. [[spoiler: It turns out Skrung's lack of a portal ring is a major issue for him.]]
* MasterActor: As "Skrungliacci", he actually does genuinely impressive and screamingly hilarious stunts and clown gags.
* GaggingOnYourWords: Though he does find common ground with Wake over the crate of gold they loot from the naval camp, at Eloy and Ezra's egging, it is near Sisyphean for him to blurt out the word "friend", only barely getting it out after a LastSecondWordSwap from saying "fuck". Wake doesn't really mind, either way.
* HandCannon: His preferred weapon type.
** MageMarksman: He can infuse the bullets with homing ProjectileSpell properties.
* JerkAss: Skrung from the get-go is a dick to just about every other character.
** JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler:When his backstory is revealed, his sour attitude becomes much more understandable. He's the son of the Goblin King, but is exiled and literally forgotten because his birthright was stolen by a redcap, he [[YouCantGoHomeAgain can't go home again]] until he gets his ring back, and has sunk literally billions of gold pieces trying to do so only for every single attempt to fail. And at the end of Chapter 2, he loses his right hand while fighting a Gremlin, just to compound things]].
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In this case, the party encounter his nemesis, the redcap Grosswort, learn his backstory when said foe escapes, and talk him into joining their crew for lack of any better options.
* SadClown: The party keep pushing for him to adopt this persona as part of their traveling show, out-of-character comparing him to ''Theatre/{{Pagliacci}}''. He accepts with considerable reluctance. [[spoiler: It helps that like the trope entails, beneath his outward persona is a genuinely depressed person]].
** In chapter 3, he's motivated to actually take on the persona of "Skrungliacci".
* SoProudOfYou: Eloy's flashback reveals that he felt this at the end of the former's TrainingFromHell, where Skrung hurled all kinds of abuse at him, by actually getting up and taking the centaur's hand and proudly proclaiming "You're ready!"
* StealthExpert: Has a tendency to disappear from situations without a trace. This is later exploited to enter a navy encampment.
* TheStoner: Drinking alcohol and smoking are some of the few pleasures he has left. At the end of Chapter 2, Onslow, Gulfur and Pliskin give him some of Yt's psychotropic secretions [[spoiler:to deal with the pain from his missing hand]], but he had it soaked into his cigarettes and it turns out that the heat dulls the effects.
* TheNapoleon: Short? He's a goblin so yeah. Mean? Even moreso.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Aside from Eloy, everybody seems to tolerate him at best. Not that he likes them at all either. [[spoiler: As they learn his backstory, especially Wake, they start to come around. He in turn at least seems to form some level of friendship and camaraderie with Wake following the Southern Island quest. Completely averted by the end of Chapter 2, when the entire crew start pitching in to help him with the loss of his right arm, even if through what about amounts to drug and drug-making experimentation]].
* TookALevelInKindness: Not by a lot, but he is less antagonistic and standoffish with the party upon setting sail. He still barbs at them for his own amusement, but he has at least become FireForgedFriends with a side of VitriolicBestBuds with the main crew. It helps that, [[spoiler: they, especially Wake, have agreed to help him in his quest, especially after Eloy fumbling it up]]. Lampshaded by Wake:
--> '''Wake''' (after Skrung ribs at him): I thought we were cool!
** In Chapter 3 Episode 13, Skrung is a lot mellower than he has been in a long time thanks in part to the group finally getting a solid lead for him, and he actually apologizes for being so rude in the past, saying that he appreciates everything they've done to help him. He still struggles to call Ezra and Eloy his friends, though, remarking that it feels like he's swearing in Goblin.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He struck a deal with Orc pirates, knows his way around the underdark, and is all around an antagonistic person. [[spoiler: He isn't as bad as he lets himself out to be and is overall a JerkassWoobie at worst, and he does mellow out slightly as he travels with the party]].
* YouNeedToGetLaid: After getting to visit a brothel in Chapter 2 Episode 8 he's far mellower than he has been at any other point in the campaign, even being straight-up friendly with Ezra.

!!Risf
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/risfresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Oh dear..."]]

A kobold of faith encountered by the team aboard the Voltun in Episode 1. He's one of the nicest people in the group, and seems to like just about everyone. He's also an interdimensional alien with ambitions of the cosmic variety. Served as physician on the ''Yeldin''.
----
* AbsurdPhobia: Risf's fear of demons is understandable, considering his religious background. His fear of the Infernal language, which is just a dialect with no inherently evil qualities, is less so.
* ActualPacifist: Not the least bit comfortable with the more violent options his comrades pick.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler: His endgame. Risf's worship of every god is a result of an all-consuming fascination with the origin and true nature of these higher beings. He hopes his "hobby" will ultimately result in a way for him to ascend to godhood himself.]]
* BadLiar: When Wake asks him about the location of the Staff of Holy Fire that was looted, he tensed up and spouted some pretty obvious lies. It's justified because he thought Wake would be mad he got rid of it.
* BlessedWithSuck / CursedWithAwesome: All a matter of perspective, really. [[spoiler: After an encounter with a bodak that left him [[OnlyMostlyDead clinically dead for three hours]], he came back with one red eye and unable to feel half his body. That's the "suck" part of the equation; the good part is half his scales are now black, which is the color of the kobold priest caste, and during his experience he communed with the god of death, so Risf considers the whole experience getting one step closer to his eventual goal of becoming a god.]]
* CameBackWrong: He survived nearly having his soul sucked out by a bodak, but he was definitely ''changed'' by the experience. Half his body turned coal black, and instead of healing people on that side of his body, he deals necrotic damage.
* CreepyGood: Is a genuinely kindhearted and pleasant person, aside from the whole, [[spoiler:"I want to be a god" thing.]]
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: When he is near death, the God of Death offers to make him his acolyte, and Risf denies him to his face, which results in the God of Death cursing him.
--> '''Risf''': I put fear into a God.
** Slightly downplayed, because he said "Heck off".
* DivineConflict: Since many gods oppose eachother, it's made clear on several occasions that Risf worshiping all of them is ''not'' a good idea.
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: Played with. Most clerics and paladins know the specific details of exactly which deity grants them their power. However, since Risf worships every god, he has ''no idea where his magic comes from.''
* FacialMarkings: Has strange tatoos one the left side of his face. They even run down his arm.
* GoldenMeanFallacy: Risf worships and tithes to every single deity known within the setting because he doesn't want to offend any of them by playing favorites. The problem is that like any pantheon, there are some who don't get along (like Salima and Brookalina, goddesses of summer and winter respectively) so he's metaphorically shooting himself in the foot. The players have remarked on this every once in a while.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Never swears, to the point where he considers the word "Heck" a swear.
* HealingHands: His religious knowledge allows him to use clerical healing powers, though he knows not which god they stem form as he worships all of them. These come in handy aboard the Mantaruva, as he cures both himself and Ezra of vampiric infection. [[spoiler: After he's cursed, if he tries to heal with his cursed half, then he risks tearing out the soul of the person he was trying to heal.]]
* HealingHerb: Mixes these up for Pliskin to help with his...condition.
* HolyHandGrenade: [[spoiler: After the IJustShotMarvinInTheFace moment below, and horrified at what his panicked shot caused, Risf casts Bless on the cannon and prays his damnest to any god that could bless his next shot so that it hits true this time and not hurt any of his own allies again. The resulting cannonball not only hits true, it explodes in a blast of holy light, practically taking out the entire wave in one go]].
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: After getting a good shot with a cannon during a siege and blocking off the enemy's advance, he decided to turn the canon around so they could focus fire on the other side of the building. However, after getting rattled by Carble's sonic attack, he confusedly lit the canon's fuse ''before'' turning it around, resulting in him destroying a corner of their stronghold and critically injuring Calliope, though she gets better soon after.
* NearDeathExperience: [[spoiler: Almost gets his soul devoured by a bodak, and winds up clinically dead for about three hours.]]
* OhCrap: Has this reaction when Wake, in the middle of an adventure, points out that night is falling and they've lost track of Pliskin, who [[spoiler: will be supernaturally called to enter the ocean and transform into a Wereshark]].
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In this case, Eloy talks him into joining their crew after asking him about the gods, and offering the chance to learn more about them and see the world. He comes as a unit with Pliskin.
* TeamMom: Risf does everything he can to keep people comfortable and behaving. He even tries to ease the tension between Skrung and the player characters, even though it doesn't work out great.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: [[spoiler: Risf isn't from Kelpie's realm, where the campaign is set. He originates from a different planet governed by a different god, but he went through a [[OneWayTrip one-way portal]] and wound up in Kelpie's realm. Thankfully, he found the experience enlightening rather than terrifying.]]
* TurnUndead: Proves able to do this with his [[ReviveKillsZombie healing powers]], even turning a zombie to dust with a touch, to great approval from the rest of the party.
* NiceGuy: He's first seen offering to ease Eloy's discomfort at sea, and has yet to do anything antagonistic to anybody.
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: He has the long ears associated with Zito's kobold characters.
* TokenReligiousTeammate: He's not the only man of faith in the campaign, but he has the unique quirk of showing reverence to ''every'' god in the pantheon, something not reccommended by The Collective. This makes him quantifiably the most religious.
* TouchedByVorlons: During a near-death experience, he meets and (politely) defies Vexkor, the God of Death, resulting in a curse that turns him half-black and gives him necromantic powers.
* WhiteMage: Risf is established early on as a religiously-inclined magic user. Zito later clarifies that he specializes in healing magic.

!!Pliskin Hark
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pliskinresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "I dunno, Cap'n. Did you try pulling up the Anchor?"]]


A pirate first encountered by the team as security on the Voltun in Episode 1. He's ex-navy, but little else is known about him. Served as the helmsman on the ''Yeldin''.
----
* AllThereInTheManual: His last name was stated in the TFS Discord server alongside his official artwork.
* BerserkButton: Takes offense to Wake's insinuation of pirates pillaging villages. Ezra manages to defuse the two before they break into an argument.
** Don't be stupid enough to mention that he's a wereshark. He was seconds away from shooting ''Eloy'' when he mentioned it outloud a month or two into their journey in a crowded bar.
* TheCharmer: Displays a bit of this when talking to Edward Caster's CuteClumsyGirl receptionist, who is clearly enamored with his roguish charisma.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Is introduced explaining that Grammy is ''not'' being held against her will, and shouldn't be taken seriously.
* TheGenericGuy: [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Mysterious curses]] aside, he's unfortunately had very little to do throughout the first two chapters other than being an extra hand in combat, and tends to get forgotten about by the players and audience. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in the Chapter 3 recap's description of the ''Yeldin'''s crew - the other characters all get some flowery description, followed by a blunt [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg "and a guy called Pliskin."]]
* IAteWhat: Is noticably disgusted by the "secret ingedient" in Grammy's Chicken Noodle Soup. [[spoiler: It's Seagull.]]
* TheInsomniac: He's noted to look like he badly needs sleep. Definitely and moreso after the main party returns from the Southern Islands. [[spoiler: Not only is that because what was a few hours for the trio and Naval officers were a week to everyone else, he can't exactly afford to sleep when he can't control his transformations]].
** He finally points out a much more practical reason he looks like this in Chapter 3: The crew never assigned night watch duties, so he usually ended up doing it.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In this case, Ezra learns his backstory, convinces him that talking with a merman such as Wake offers the best chance of uncovering the truth of his condition, and hires him for the crew on the basis that he has the most actual seafaring experience of everyone available.
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: It turns out there's more to him with what he tells Ezra, as he drops hints that he may be some sort of weremerman should he ever [[InvoluntaryShapeshifter step into water. Risf is actually his constant companion to keep him from transforming]]. [[spoiler:Chapter 2 Session 6 finally reveals the nature of his curse: He's a [[SharkMan were-shark]].]]
* TokenHuman: Downplayed. "Redd" is human too, but she has a talent in magic and espionage. Pliskin is the only person on the scout team who fits the descriptor of "regular dude." This means that he tends to be overlooked by the party when choosing companions for certain quests, which often has Zito remind them that he's there and even a thing.

!!"Redd"
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reddresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "My work is to be held to the utmost secrecy. Got it?"]]

A human spy with magical abilities. She's on the run from the Navy, and is carrying documents that she's willing to protect with her life. Served as Quartermaster on the ''Yeldin''. We learn more about her in Chapter 2, as she's revealed to be a member of a controversial Vampire Hunting clan known as the Volition.

In Chapter 3, Redd leaves the crew as she's more tied to the Volition's activity than she is to the Oneders.
----
* BadassLongcoat: Zito mentions her wearing one in Episode 1.
* BerserkButton: The two big ones seem to be losing her research notes, and the Ashdrake vampire hunter family. Wake seems determined to press every single one she has, however unintentionally.
-->'''Lani:''' My dice fucking HATE Redd!
* ButtMonkey: Chapter 3 hasn't been kind to Redd, with her getting badly injured in several early sessions. In Episode 6 when she offers to go ashore with the group, Wake outright tells her that after everything she's been through lately, she deserves a day off.
* ClassifiedInformation: Only she knows whatever's written in those documents, and nobody else is allowed to read them.
* {{Claustrophobia}}: The group finds out that she has this in Chapter 2 Episode 13 -- and yet she agreed to go on a mission that required her to use a diving bell.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Redd's magic is almost entirely based on fire. She's good in a fight, but practically useless in any other matter that doesn't involve battle.
* DisapprovingLook: Shoots one at Eloy in Episode 6 for his continued ignorance and/or denial of his music OBVIOUSLY being magic[[note]]Eloy was demonstrating what he believes is his ability to attract will-o-wisps with his music, despite the fact that, as Onslow reminds them, that will-o-wisps only come out at night and yet it's midday at that point. Eloy instead believes and insists that his music still attracted them and nothing more, despite the time of the day and Wake's elemental affinities not working on the "will-o-wisp". At which point, "Redd" looks at Eloy like he's an idiot.[[/note]].
* GenerationXerox: She's the spitting image of her mother.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: This is her reaction to the group's antics at the boardwalk.
* NotHyperbole: [[spoiler:In Chapter 2 Session 15, she explains that when she said her research notes were her life, she ''wasn't'' exaggerating -- if she doesn't bring the notes to her superiors, they'll have her killed. Barabus, who's a member of the same organization, confirms this and adds that they'd more than likely order him to do the deed.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: Has her moments. Sometimes, it's as subtle as cracking a lighthearted joke when Eloy admits his deep-seated animosity towards cervine centaurs is his "baggage to carry", and accepting the high-five Eloy offers from that joke. Other times, she enters a ForScience mode when observing and noting down wolves getting devoured by giant spiders, even as her companions make it clear they would rather be anywhere else.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, she was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In her case, Wake learns her backstory and she requests the party take her along to help her stay undercover.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Just "Redd" as far as the others care, and she's not keen on the idea of sharing her real name.
* OnlySaneMan: Whenever she's part of the immediate party, chances are one of the trio is going to do something silly, intentionally or not, and one can expect "Redd" to provide the metaphorical facepalm at the resulting shenanigans.
* PlayingWithFire: Her magic allows her to use this...and it appears to be the only thing she's good for as far as she's concerned.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Well, no mention of her eye color is made but her red hair is one of her more striking physical features.
* TheSmartGuy: Usually the first one the crew will turn to for questions about arcane matters.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: When she comes face-to-face with the [[spoiler: youngest member of the paranormal-investigating Ashdrake Clan, Rock,]] she expresses discomfort during the whole meeting, and when Ezra unintentionally pries, she reluctantly explains to him that she cannot stand [[spoiler: Rock's more glory-hogging and vainglorious older brothers]], but will tolerate working with the clearly more honest and well-intentioned younger Ashdrake while they're stuck on a vampire-infested ship.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Despite being incredibly suspicious and outright admitting to being a spy, none of the player characters seem to care about what her classified documents say.
* VampireHunter: Turns out this is her schtick, and it's getting tailed by some vampires that led her to try to lay low in Jahal Cove. She later admits that the crew of the ''Mantaruva'' was trying to find her.

!!Onslow Green
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/onslow.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "I ain't ever killed one of you before, son."]]

A rotund alligator man with a reputation as an expert hunter. Served as gunnery chief on the ''Yeldin''.
----
* BalefulPolymorph: Gets turned into a (very fat) deer by a Wendigo's curse due to carelessly shooting two of the deer on its island. Later, when he gets "harvested" by the Wendigo, he turns into a regular-sized bean, albeit a scaly green one. Like Wake, he gets better.
* BerserkButton: Cletus. As his rival, Cletus knows all of Onslow's buttons and pushes them constantly.
* BloodKnight: Onslow loves him the thrill of the hunt. The bigger the game, the better he feels, and he's never happier in any situation than he is when he has the chance to kill something.
* {{BFG}}: Has a Blunderbuss that's as big as he is.
* CheshireCatGrin: Gets one in Episode 8 when Wake offers him one of Nedra's trophies: [[spoiler:Old Young Cletus' severed arm]].
* CowerPower: He is ''terrified'' of Grammy.
* DeepSouth: Speaks in a laid back southern drawl.
* FatAndSkinny: He's much larger than Old Young Cletus, his primary hunting rival. As a matter of fact...he's probably much larger than the rest of the lizardfolk 'round his neck of the woods.
* FireForgedFriends: Seems to have become much better friends with the three heroes after [[spoiler: the four of them kill the Abyssal Man-Maw. Out of Character, Zito flat out states that hunting the Man-Maw was Onslow's LoyaltyMission.]]
* FullNameBasis: He insists upon being called by his full name, and will get offended if you just call him "Onslow", "Mr. Green", or the like. Although, once the party manages to befriend him, they are able to call him just Onslow without any repercussions.
* HiddenDepths: He's one heck of a banjo player.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: He has a human head among his hunting trophies.
* GreatWhiteHunter: Great Green Hunter, actually.
* ImAHumanitarian: Remarks that he's eaten human flesh before. The fact that he's got a human head on his trophy wall lends credence to this. Though thankfully he said he thought it tasted bad.
* LizardFolk: He and the rest of his village are a race of humanoid alligators.
* MadeOfIron: Shrugs off getting accidentally shot in the back by Ezra, saying he thought it was a mosquito.
** Averted in Episode 5, which proves that Onslow is ''not'' indestructible.
--> '''Zito:''' I don't want to kill Onslow.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable if the right sidequest was undertaken. In his case, the hunt for the vicious Man-Maw endears him to the party, and he ends up joining their crew.
* StoutStrength: He's enormous, and tough as nails. As a male gator, his sheer girth is a source of pride for him, such that he finds Wake's suggestion of going on a diet during their phase of being turned into deer for him to go on a diet offensive.
** Speaking of his deer phase, his fatness backfires on him as the sheer fat upon being turned into a mammal makes it difficult to breathe.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: He finds [[spoiler: Viktor]]'s intention to [[spoiler: harvest his people's organs for extra materials]] to be, in his words, "rude." However, he finds the effect the experiments had on his prized hunt, the Manmaw, to be ''utterly unforgivable.''
* TranquilFury: Episode 5 sees Onslow get truly angry for the first time in the campaign. He loses all his jovial attributes and goes full gator, complete with a low growl. Wake, Ezra and Eloy find it terrifying.
** Revisited in Chapter 2, Episode 5 when he's transformed into a deer. In a completely level voice, he informs Wake that he hates everything about this and fully intends to kill and devour every living thing on the island once cured.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Onslow demonstrates full ability to make use of his girth when, in Episode 6 of Chapter 3, he takes a gargantuan ''Dire Tiger'' by the neck, hoists it over his head, and ''piledrives it.''

!!Nedra
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nedraresized.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Are we fighting now?"]]

A 9-foot tall Tiefling Barbarian who stood as the champion of the fighting pit at the boardwalk. She loves a good fight more than anything, and is incredibly friendly underneath her fierce exterior. Was adopted as Wake's apprentice, and served as chief security on the ''Yeldin''.

After a tough loss and HeroicBSOD, Wake convinces her to find a cause to fight for, and she is now classed as a Fighter, who will begin taking Monk levels as she levels up.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:The Grungs cut off part of her tail when they tried to capture her, but since the party retrieved it Risf was able to reattach it with healing magic. During one fan art session Zito jokingly said that in his mind, the severed portions is now reattached with medical staples.]]
* AndCallHimGeorge: She has a hard time grasping the concept of petting, since she thought it was another word for punching. So when she tries to cuddle Wake's new deer form at the end of Chapter 2 Episode 5, it doesn't go well for him. She gets better at this over time.
* BigEater: Mr.Theraday says that she eats 5 times her weight and doesn't gain a pound.
* BloodKnight: Nedra loves fighting to the point where she only considers people friends if she can punch them. She at least ''tries'' not to kill people though. [[spoiler:However, even she's smart enough not to pick a fight with Gore in his dragon form.]]
* BoisterousBruiser: She's big, she's nice, and she's a terror in a fight.
* BreakoutCharacter: She was introduced as an OptionalPartyMember, same as the other [=NPCs=] on the Yeldin. Since then, she's gotten increasingly more important to the characters and plot. Taken UpToEleven in the fan art, where she's more or less treated as a 4th main character.
* BrokenBird: Downplayed. While she's not openly depressed about it, she had come to accept that she gets passed around between pirate crews like clockwork, waiting for when they eventually hand her off to someone else. As such, when shown actual kindness and loyalty by the main trio, she comes to actually bond with them, viewing them like surrogate brothers rather than her handlers. Naturally, she's most attached to Wake.
* CarryABigStick: In Episode 7 of Chapter 2, Wake commissions a Kanabō for her.
* ChairmanOfTheBrawl: When Wake sucker-punches Theraday to the ground, She excitedly brandishes a chair.
-->'''Nedra:''' Are we fighting now?
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:While Wake had been trying all along to mold Nedra into a more focused fighter, it wasn't until she lost to Barabus that the lesson finally started to sink in. While she was going through a HeroicBSOD afterwards, Wake consoled her by saying that he didn't start winning battles until he found something to fight for other than "to get stronger". Thanks to Lani's convincing speech (and rolling a Natural 20), Zito explained that Nedra would be changing from a Barbarian to a Fighter and any levels she gained in the future would be as a Monk.]]
* CreepyChild: According to Zito, she's 15 years old. His instructions to the artist were "the girl from ''Film/TheRing'' on pixie sticks."
* DefeatEqualsFriendship: Downplayed. In Nedra's mind, ''fighting'' equals friendship. She took a shine to Wake because he was a good opponent. Being able to best her was icing on the cake.
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: Has difficulty keeping her strength in check, mainly because she has a hard time understanding that harming other creatures is bad. The entire crew help her work on this point, and by the time they visit a zoo, she manages to avoid killing anything save a leech on a particular bat.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Though Wake has to keep reminding her that animals are far less tough than she is, she's ecstatic to meet animals in the zoo and pet them, even being overjoyed to have "Yt" hang out around her.
* GenkiGirl: She's perpetually upbeat and excitable, even at her most violent.
* HearingVoices: According to Nedra she hears a voice in her head that seems to want her to embrace her demonic heritage, such as pushing her to be violent and destructive and [[spoiler:telling her that she lost to Barabus was because she didn't listen, and would continue to lose as long as she tried to fight who she "really is". [[CharacterDevelopment Her subsequent heart-to-heart with Wake]] helped her to start getting over this.]]
* HopelessBossFight: She was actually meant to win her match against Wake, the idea being that she would respect his strength and he'd have a chance to recruit her with the right persuasion. Instead, Wake won by a combination of unusually good rolls on Lani's part, unusually bad rolls on Zito's part, and some bardic aid from Eloy during the fight. As such, she now more or less follows him around like a lost puppy.
* HornedHumanoid: She has curved horns protruding from her forehead. They add an extra foot to her total height!
* IncendiaryExponent: She intentionally lights her hand on fire during her fight with Wake.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Has come to view the main three has surrogate brothers, especially Wake.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: It turns out that Nedra's father [[spoiler: is a Balor demon- specifically, the BigBad behind [[GreatOffscreenWar the Onrush]].]]
* NoSocialSkills: She was raised by a series of guardians who viewed her as either a highly dangerous liability or a potential weapon; as such, she has no formal education and almost no socialization, being unfamiliar with any kind of social interaction that doesn't involve punching.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, she was written to be recruitable if the right sidequest was undertaken. In this case, Wake won (barely) a cage match against her, securing her loyalty.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: More than what comes of being a Tiefling, according to fellow Tiefling Harros. [[spoiler: She has Demon heritage. POWERFUL Demon heritage.]]
* PlayingWithFire: She has the tiefling-standard fire abilities. The boardwalk provided an oil pit in the arena for her to utilize in fights.
* [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]]: Downplayed, justified and also played for laughs: She comes across like an extremely sheltered six year old...in the body of a 9 foot tall gladiator whose entire worldview revolves around fighting. However, she's only 15 years old (roughly equivalent to a 13-year-old human girl), so the immaturity is warranted somewhat. [[spoiler: Harros, however, seems to dispute that it's less the age that's the cause of her demeanor and more of her unusual Tiefling heritage, which is shown in Chapter 3 where it seems like a different entity briefly overtook her]].
* SlasherSmile: One of her most defining features is a manic smile.
* SucksAtDancing: Her style of dancing is best described as "punching the ground with her legs."
* SweetTooth: She loves cotton candy. Eloy buying multiple bags of it to share caused Nedra to declare him her best friend.
* UnskilledButStrong: As a barbarian brawler she's all power and no technique; this is largely the reason Wake was able to beat her in the arena. In Episode 8 he offers to train her in the martial arts, and after demonstrating (with a tree) how much more effective precision is than just raw strength, she readily agreed.
** It also was some part of how she lost against Barabus, losing control of herself and giving him time to strike her in a weak spot.
* UnstoppableRage: She has the barbarian rage ability, making her stronger and reducing the damage she takes. She ''can'' be stopped in this state, but it's one hell of a task.
* WorthyOpponent: Bulkard's fight pit champion [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Barabus Bonebite]] considers her this. [[spoiler: Though she lost, being the first person to actually knock him down in a long time makes her this.]]
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: The subject of one. [[spoiler: The Grand Design pirates have been shuffling Nedra around between their various groups so that by the time [[EvilOverlord her father]] can pin down her location, she's already been moved somewhere else. For this reason, Captain Lot is all too happy that the Oneders took Nedra off his hands, as Nedra travelling around with a random group of privateers/entertainers is going to make it that much harder for her father to track her down. Goes another step further by essentially dropping off the grid by entering a monastary.]]

!! "Yt" the Fairy Dragon
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yt.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:250: Art by [=@SageGreenKat=] on Twitter.]]
A cat-sized dragon from the [[FairFolk Feywilds]] that was bothering the Purple Worm in the Bulkard Zoo. The crew decides to take it with them as their pet after it shows itself to be both harmless and adorable.
----
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Yt has a very striking, psychedelic color scheme.
* AmbiguousGender: Hasn't a clue what that means.
* AscendedFanon: Yt previously didn't have a nailed down design. a fan by the name of [=@SageGreenKat=] drew a fantastic rendition of him that Zito essentially declared canon the minute he saw it.
* CutenessProximity: Everyone immediately warms up to Yt due to it's childlike nature.
* KillerRabbit: A fey spirit reveals to Eloy and Wake that Fairy Dragons [[spoiler:can shapeshift their size, implying that Yt might only be his small size by choice. Also, he's apparently ''terrifyingly'' deadly.]]
* MathematiciansAnswer: Yt's name is pronounced as the word "it", which immediately creates confusion upon the crew announcing they figured out that Yt was the problem.
* MushroomSamba: Is revealed to be living in one of these ''all the time''.
--> '''Yt, calm as a cucumber''': Every day is a good day with a bowl of Lucky Charms.
* NotSoHarmless: Not seen, but [[spoiler:apparently he can face ''gods'' with little trouble.]] Anyone who knows ''anything'' about Fairy Dragons is terrified of him.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Fairy Dragons are ''weird.'' The crew over time finds out that:
** If bothered, they secrete a special hallucinogen that, among other things, can completely tongue-tie someone, make them speak languages they don't know and sincerely warp their understanding of reality.
** If injured enough to break the skin, Yt's body produces a welt over the wound...which then pops into confetti, completely healed.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Look at him!
* TheStoner: In Chapter 2 Episode 18, the group finds out that honey has hallucinogenic effects on him. [[spoiler:They discover this after he accidentally causes Eloy to experience the same thing, including seeing Grammy as a beautiful mermaid.]]
* SweetTooth: Eats magic...and sweet things. Later on it's learned it's because he converts the sugar into fey magic. Yt takes special pleasure in the honey from Ezra's jar because he can convert it more easily.
* TeamPet
* ToadLicking: The crew begins to treat Yt as more like a portable Ecstasy dispenser [[spoiler: when they find out the effects of his self-defense.]]
* YouNoTakeCandle: Speaks like this as it has intelligence around that of a small child. Though it has moments of lucidity occasionally.

[[folder: The ''Deram's Folly'' Crew]]
In Chapter 3, the Oneders join the Adventurer's guild, which means everyone in the previous ''Yeldin'' Crew has to fill out the paper work to join and were PutOnABus as the ''Yeldin'' went to it's final fate. To ease this, Ezra could hire eight people to fill various roles on their new ship, the ''Deram's Folly''.

!! The Crew as a whole provides examples of:
* ADayInTheLimelight: The Fortune Tides Company, and thus, the crew change, was [[InvokedTrope invoked]] by Zito to ensure that the supporting cast could get equal opportunity at focus and characterization. As he puts it, it's to prevent "[[OutOfFocus another Pliskin]]"

!!Franc Mocean
A large hobgoblin who works a crêperie in Rite. He's recruited by Ezra in Chapter 3 (With Grammy's blessing) to join the crew as the new cook.
----
* BigFun: An enormous goblinoid whose only real desire in life is to make crepes with exciting new ingredients.
* ButtMonkey: Is frequently at the end of many unfortunate kitchen mishaps while he makes food.
* FriendToAllChildren: Is introduced handing out crepes to children.
* ImpossiblyDeliciousFood: His crepes are so good they give out temporary stat bonuses. they're so good he's able to impress ''Grammy''.
* PunnyName: His name is just a barely concealed Music/FrankOcean send up.
* TooDumbToLive: Brushes off the crew's very real concerns about hiring him on due to Grammy's influence, and he gets a real nasty taste of what she's like the next time the crew meets him.
* WorldOfPun: His chosen method of dessert gets Eloy going on a near endless loop of crepe puns.

!!Frieda Gazamar
A grey elf surgeon with a zealot-like fervor in serving the god of death and pain. She's unquestionably good at her job, but her bedside manner is...unconventional. Ezra recruits her to be the surgeon.
----
* CoveredWithScars: She has deep scarification all over her face and well past her neck.
* TheDreaded: The people in the guild seem justifiably terrified of her.
* EveryoneHasStandards: While eager for the opportunity to feel pain to test if her faith in Vexkor needs more improvement, she's not as eager to take opportunities where the pain is very fleeting, such as discovering the Kahl's contract branding to be such, as it would be pointless measure of her devotion.
* FeelNoPain: Underwent a ritual to deaden the nerves in her skin.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In her spiel about how she finds those who cannot feel pain or cannot handle pain weak, either Zito or herself forgot that by the standards of her own religion, her ritual to not feel pain would make her weak in the eyes of her god.
* KnifeNut: Has plenty of knives of all unconventional sizes and shapes, and tends to discard them pretty regularly. Zito explains that her daggers have twisted and curved blades like a silly straw, and every time she draws one, it has a different shape.
* MadDoctor: Due to her belief that pain is good, her treatments are just as painful as the injuries inflicted.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Her nickname is ''The Pain Witch''.
* {{Sadist}}: Her religious beliefs make her one of these.

!!Mister Large
A large, lanky Bugbear Cannonneer. He doesn't say much, but he's nice enough. He's also ludicrously stealthy. Ezra decides to hire him.
----
* ElectiveMute: An interesting version: He can understand and write Common, but he can only speak Goblin. So he uses a notepad and quill to interact with the world. To anyone else on the other hand, he could easily come off as TheSpeechless.
* FlashStep: Seems to move so fast the eye can't keep up with it.
* HandyMan: When he's not working as a Cannonneer, he's doing all sorts of odd jobs around Rite.
* StealthyColossus: He is terrifyingly good at moving around without being noticed, which he explains he had to be in order to survive his prior life of slavery.
* StealthHiBye: The master of it.

!!Charlotte Gillies
A sea-elf who speaks indirectly to the god of knowledge; Lazameth. Ezra hires her as the ship's Navigator.
----
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: She's a believer in this to a fault.
* CassandraTruth: Charlotte couldn't convince people that her god was talking to her until much later in life.
* LockedAwayInAMonastery: Was tossed into a Ludariusian convent in the hopes that her hearing voices and speaking in tongues would be cured. Turns out through testing that it was the wrong convent to send her to, and she was released.
* TheNavigator: Claims to be able to get a bird's eye view of things around her while at sea.
* [[NeverAcceptedInHisHometown Never Accepted In Her Hometown]]: Initially, Charlotte's village thought she was speaking in tongues and shunned her.
* SuperGullible: If you tell her the gods want her to do something, she will do it.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]]: With Jillian. They joined the guild at about the same time, are both elves, and are always seen together. It was so bad that even Zito would get the two of them mixed up. [[spoiler:In a bit of DarkComedy, the players mentioned that it will get easier to remember now that Jillian is dead.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mimic Crew]]
!!Tropes that apply to all characters
* DemotedToExtra: In the first chapter, the mimics were part of a side story that lasted half of the arc. Afterword's though, only Yeldin gets anything above a brief mention.
* PutOnABus: Either stayed with Wake or left in a warehouse in Rite because the players forgot about them and didn't state that they were loaded onto the new ship.
* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler: All of the crew suffered this fate, with only Yeldin remembering it, after they sought refuge to hide their treasures inside the cave he resides within. One by one, they were snatched by a colony of mind flayers(with Yeldin being the last) hiding beneath the southern island, and thorough BodyHorror were transformed into Mimics.]]

!!Trunky the Mimic
A chest-shaped Mimic the group finds in Yeldin Cave. It doesn't have a name, but Ezra gave him the nickname "Trunky" and it stuck despite its protests.

* NewMeat: As noted by Kevin, he's among the newest batch of Yeldin's mimics, and as such, takes his duties a little more strictly than his fellows.

!!Kevin the Mimic
A scabbard-shaped Mimic that used to belong to Yeldin. The group finds it much more reaonable than Trunky.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Measures time in "chapters", the same way the TFS crew numbers their adventures.
* MetaphoricallyTrue: Gives half-truths (as opposed to ''actual truths'') when simply given regular metal swords. Flaming swords [[spoiler: and mithril]] will give actual truths.
* OrificeInvasion: One would think that the opening where swords go would be his mouth. Wake and co. learn to Kevin's discomfort that it is not.
* ThroughHisStomach: He answers questions (or at least, gives ''correct'' answers) if he is given a sword to eat. He is particularly interested in what a FlamingSword might taste like, [[spoiler: though a {{Mithril}} sword is apparently worth ''all the truths''.]]

!!Roy the Mimic
Another chest-shaped Mimic the group finds in a locked room in Yeldin Cave. It was created specifically to dispose of corpses.

* BottomlessBladder: Produces no waste of what he consumes, making him perfect for disposing anything.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Just because he can eat things like decomposed or partially slime-eaten rat corpses, doesn't mean he's willing to eat, in his words, something that has already passed through someone's body.
* {{Teleportation}}: Implied that this is how he disposes of bodies. He says that the one time he tried to vomit, he spat out a moon rock.
* SeriesMascot: Of a sort. He currently serves as the standard bit jar during the Twitch streams.

!!Lancy the Mimic
A ring-shaped Mimic that was inside Trunky. It eats finger bones to create skeleton keys, but only one at a time.

* {{Fingore}}: How he creates keys. Wake narrowly avoids getting a demonstration with his finger.
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Twofold. First, the key produced from the carved finger bone only opens a certain door once. Second, only one finger from a certain being can be used to make a key.

!!Zia'ka
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ziaka.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250: "Bitch."]]

A Yuan-Ti Abomination warlock who was captured by Skrung, Risf, "Redd", and Pliskin after they discovered her stalking them. She served as navigator for the ''Yeldin'' while she and the rest of her crew went looking for The Heart of the Collective One, a god of the Yuan-Ti.

Once the crew safely retrieved and returned it to it's proper place of rest, she left the crew to be it's acolyte.
----
* TheAtoner: Whatever it is she's atoning from she mentions has to do with gold.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: After leaving the hunting party temporarily to inform her people of their presence and mission, she returns with a pack of her people to save the party from yet another EldritchAbomination that the group are in no longer any shape to deal with]].
* BlackMagic: We don't know much about her magic abilities, but evidence points to the 'dark' category.
* BoundAndGagged: Introduced this way, as Skrung's party subdued her for following them.
* DarkIsNotEvil: She's not an antagonist, despite her powers and the way she was introduced. She just wants wants to make sure the Collective One's tributes go undisturbed.
* DumbStruck: Her initial reaction to [[spoiler: Cletus presenting Wake with a Yuan-ti corpse.]] She manages to pull herself together, but it's clear this was ''not'' a good situation for her.
* EasilyForgiven: Even though Skrung's group attacked and ensared her, she puts that behind her once she states her peace and calms down. She even seemed to strike up a friendship with "Redd."
* GoldFever: Is noted to react very strongly to gold, which the party witnesses when Skrung and Wake give her a share of the gold they loot from the naval camp.
* ImAHumanitarian: Well, a predator anyway. She's expressed a desire to eat the faun Calliope, and isn't afraid to express that desire when she gets mad.
* NoSenseOfHumor: Justified, given the circumstances. She mistakes the boardwalk's crab-like mascot Pinchy for an abyssal monster in episode 7.
* NotSoAboveItAll: She finds herself legitimately enjoying the boardwalk atmosphere, despite the changes they made to the temple.
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, she was written to be recruitable in the right circumstances. In her case, the party helps her to commune with her people and their god, the Collective One, and joins the party after they agree to help her retrieve the lost Heart of the Collective One, an icon of incredible power.
* PrecisionFStrike: After learning the meaning of the word "bitch" from Wake, she immediately turned around and called Ave Lo a bitch to her face.
* PutOnABus: Upon returning the Heart of the Collective One and being made a priestess, Zia'ka leaves the crew to lead her people.
* SnakePeople: Of the mostly-snake variety. She resembles a gigantic serpent with arms and some [[NonMammalianMammaries feminine curves about the torso]].
* ScaryStitches: The hood she's wearing is stitched together from mismatched patches of fabric.
* SuddenlyShouting: When she's first introduced, she ends up working herself up and begins shouting at Wake, even though he asked her several times to behave herself.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Zito has mentioned the players would have met Zia'ka under different circumstances had they taken the route through the temple/boardwalk.

A dwarf that gambled with Wake in Episode 2. He lost horribly. Now serves as shipwright and Alchemist of the ''Yeldin''. Died in Chapter 3 from the ''Yeldin'' being dropped by a giant, possibly while he was having a seizure.

* CameBackWrong: In Chapter 3 Session 10, Captain Meed tells the party that [[spoiler:his observers saw vampires boarding the ''Yeldin'' and leaving with what appeared to be Gulfur, meaning they revived him either as another vampire or a ghoul.]]
* CardSharp: Used his false leg to rattle the dice table when playing against Wake. It's up in the air as to whether this actually helped though.
* ChemistryCanDoAnything: As the ships alchemist, and since this is a D&D campaign, he's capable of doing plenty of crazy things with materials the crew brings back to him.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:One of four characters that could possibly have died during that part of the campaign, but it wasn't guaranteed that anyone ''had'' to die. Gulfur got a Nat 1 on his roll so he was long dead before Wake even found him. He died possibly by seizure or falling damage.]]
* KilledOffForReal: In Chapter 3 Session 5, [[spoiler:Wake finds Gulfurr's body with heart cut out and goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the Grung frog people, who took the heart (which the group successfully retrieves). However, in the next episode Grammy reveals that he was dead before the Grungs got to him, more than likely from the fall.]]
* MyFistForgivesYou: When Wake apologizes for his lack-of-trust-influenced and impulsive decision to plant a rune bomb on Gulfur's neck (he was concerned that Gulfur would run off with the mimic ship, along with his own mimics who he had loaned), the latter stomps on Wake's foot as he accepts the apology. [[spoiler: It helps that due to a reverse YearInsideHourOutside effect in the room the main trio fought Viktor, a week passed]].
* OptionalPartyMember: As with several [=NPCs=] in the first chapter, he was written to be recruitable if the right sidequest was undertaken. In this case, the party win his treasure map in a game of chance, accept his guidance to find where it leads, and eventually find the mimic ship Yeldin, which he claims for his own property but allows the party to use.

[[folder: Former ''Deram's Folly'' Crew - '''SPOILERS''']]
!!Jillian Harvest
An Eladrin Boatswain that Wake bumps into outside the guild. She's an excitable girl who wants to enjoy the life of adventure she's put out for herself. Ezra recruits her to be the new Boatswain.
----
* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Her]]: [[spoiler:Dies rather suddenly after Dagon tried healing her with a plant growth potion. The plant that grows out of her seems to suck the life out of her like a parasite.]]
* ExpressiveHair: Her hair has flowers growing from it, and resembles plantlife.
* GenkiGirl: Her portrait is a wide-eyed, open-mouthed picture of pure excitement.
* GreenThumb: Her powers in general.
* {{Irony}} : Both in and out-of-universe. In universe, she [[spoiler:dies from a potion that helps plants grow]] and out-of-universe, she was Yeldin's replacement to help the crew's ship grow in size and strength and be easily repaired. [[spoiler:She's, of course, the first of the new crew to die.]]
** On the other hand, [[spoiler: Gulfur's death was utterly random led to nothing much but bad things for the party until they reached Rite and joined the Guild]]. Meanwhile, [[spoiler: Jillian died by pure human accident, but it was in the attempt to both save her and deal with their current predicament of fey spiders, and then later, the experience of her death was instrumental in saving some captured slaves from some cruel Femorian slavers, including a little girl that had especially been beaten horribly by them. In other words. Gulfur died a pointless death, Jillian's indirectly led to lives being saved]].
* TheHeart: For Charlotte being the GenkiGirl and her good friend (so much so that the players and even the GM mixes the two of them up since they were always together). [[spoiler:Charlotte barely holds it together when Jillian dies.]]
* JumpedAtTheCall: She enjoyed working as aid for farmers in Silvergleam, but the first chance she got she immediately made her way to Rite to join the guild.
* PlantHair: She can change the color and "season" of her hair at will, but only once a day.
* PowerIncontinence: If she's sufficiently excited, she can accidentally blow her once-a-day hairstyle change.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Not herself, but her power to regrow wood that has been broken is very similar to the way ''Yeldin'' [[spoiler:used to]] regenerate itself. It's primarily because of her need for the raw materials and little else that Ezra hires her
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]]: With Charlotte. They joined the guild at about the same time, are both elves, and are always seen together. It was so bad that even Zito would get the two of them mixed up. [[spoiler:In a bit of DarkComedy, the players mentioned that it will get easier to remember now that Jillian is dead.]]

[[folder: Former Mimic Crew - '''SPOILERS''']]
!!Yeldin
The enigmatic and all but declared dead captain of the "Mimic crew", and said to have sailed a Mimic ''ship''. Revealed to in fact ''BE'' the mimic ship, and be resting inside a cave of shipwrecks on the southern isles deep within the abandoned Mind Flayer base. The crew frees him, and for most of Chapters 1 and 2 serves as their ship.

Sadly, after Gulfurr's death, Yeldin's soul left the ship and it had to be scuttled lest it become a danger to those around it.
----
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: Implied heavily to be how the Mind Flayers transformed him and his crew into mimics.]]
** Happens AGAIN when the crew transports the Collective One's heart. [[spoiler: It's so hot that he has to eat the metal in the floorboards just to keep himself from catching fire]]
* CannibalismSuperpower: [[spoiler: When he consumes something inorganic, his ship body will take on the properties of those objects proportional to how much as he consumed. Ie portholes becoming gold after being fed a gold bar, the rusted metal of the ships sides becoming mythril after being fed a mythril flintlock. Furthermore, he can take on the appearance of any other ship by consuming it, or just use the matter to make himself larger.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Dies with Gulfurr which is surprising as not only was the mechanic of them needing a living relative to survive not mentioned until after Gulfur died, but Gulfur being his last living relative was also not mentioned before.]]
* EmptyShell: [[spoiler:Following Gulfurr's death, Yeldin goes eerily quiet and the group can't figure out why. Eventually the leaders of the Volition explain that it's because Yeldin isn't there anymore -- the death of Gulfurr, his last living descendant, severed his connection to the mortal world, meaning that the ship had become a mindless Mimic.]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: While being a soul stuck to a ship sucks big time, eternally forced into service...
* HiddenDepths: Eloy's bard battle at Bulkard reveals he has a commanding, and very resonant, singing voice.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:After they reveal that Yeldin's soul was gone, the leaders of the Volition tell Ezra and crew that the ship would have to be destroyed -- with no higher intelligence, it would just mindlessly eat and grow as per a Mimic's normal "programming", becoming a great danger to those around it.]]
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: [[spoiler: The last thing he remembers before waking up in his current ship form. He describes waking up to bright lights and "Octopus People" staring down at him. He turned to the side to see Kevin similarly StrappedToAnOperatingTable, and the Octopus People pulling his ''intestines out through his nose''.]]
* VikingFuneral: Is subject to this in Chapter 3 after his body reverts to a feral mimic ship. A unique case of the funereal subject being the burning ship itself rather than inside one.

[[folder: Recruitable Adventurer's Guild Members]]
Introduced as part of the Adventurer's Guild in Chapter 3. The Natural Oneders can now pick up to four or five people to go on expeditions with them.

!! Soup Kitchen
A warforged whose only goal in life is to cook meals. He is ''very'' serious about it.
----
* BerserkButton: Food Critics.
* CordonBleughChef: Ezra gets the impression that he's probably able to make decent food, but taste might be an issue.
* MundaneUtility: Because he's a warforged, his limbs can be replaced and regrown easily. He mostly uses this skill to change between cooking utensils.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes turn piercing red when angered.

!! Magic "Bill" Wilhelm
A Crested Wood Duck-Aaracocra summoner and published author. He can be hired as either an Arcanist or a Helmsman.
----
* CoveredWithScars: His hands anyway. He got them from accidentally summoning a demon that was a little too powerful for him to control.
* FurryReminder: When he laughs, he sometimes gets a little quack in here or there.
* LiteralDisarming: Inverted. He took the limb of a demon to use as a staff.
* MundaneUtility: His book delves into the uses of summoning for the everyday person.
* SummonMagic: his skillset. His books are all about teaching people the basics of it.

!! Charr Venarus AKA "Kowalski"
A redscale Dragonborn who works as a photographer and as a fighter for the Adventuring Guild.
----
* CameraFiend: Is pretty up to date on how the tech is coming along.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Humans around town refer to him as Kowalski.
* OnlySaneMan: Initially, but it's revealed he's actually more of a BloodKnight.
* PerpetualFrowner: Isn't in a great mood when he encounters the wonders, and doesn't wane on that.
* TheStoic

!! Gentle
A Nudibranch-Merfolk War Mage who is well known in Rite...But not for the right reasons.
----
* CreepyMonotone: She's quite polite, but she is far too interested in dealing out death for her own good.
* TheDreaded: Nobody on Rite wants ''anything'' to do with her.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: She's a war mage. She does war.
* NonIndicativeName: She's a war mage who starts and ends wars on a whim. She is ''anything'' but Gentle.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: So seldom the players couldn't recall what a nudibranch looked like.


!! Doc Ramsfang
An enormous orc carpenter who the crew encounters at a specialty shop. Like nearly everyone else on the island, he works at the Adventuring Guild, and is for hire.
----
* AnimalMotif: Rams.
* TheBigGuy: Towers over the entire One-Der crew.
* BoisterousBruiser: Jovial and more than capable of smashing a few heads.
* MeaningfulName: His bottom tusks curl up like a ram's horn.
* OptionalPartyMember: Zito made it abundantly clear he's for hire.

[[folder: Guest Characters]]
!! Aarondale Jekanda "AJ"
A guest character played by Takahata 101, a high elf wizard cursed by the God of Time to teleport randomly every 12 hours until he can find everything on a list of 100 items.
----
* AmusingInjuries: Has a scar on his neck that apparently quite clearly came from one of the monsters he had to pull a tooth off of.
* AssholeVictim: Was cursed due to harassing a fellow student who turned out to be an aasimar, although in telling the story he tries to make himself sound like the victim. Out of character Taka describes him as the "Draco Malfoy" of his school, forced into humiliating circumstances.
* BreakTheHaughty: His curse was implemented for this reason, and has worked partially; he's not nearly as aloof and cruel as he once was, but he hasn't learned anything about compassion or quelling his ego.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Being an ace transmuter doesn't mean a hell of a lot when you're cursed with trying to find things.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Enforced by his curse. He has to find an increasing amount of hard to find and bizarre things and fill a bag of holding with it. Naturally, he is EXTREMELY loathe to part with any of it.
* {{Cuckold}}: He mentions to Eloy that at one point he teleported back home and thought his ordeal was over, only to see his girlfriend having sex with the same person who cursed him. Of course, by this point he'd been such an utter pain in the ass that the normally friendly Eloy's response was "[[PrecisionFStrike Guess how many shits I give?]]"
* FantasticRacism: When addressed by Ezra, a half-elf, as a fellow elf, he causally quips that such a comparison is a stretch.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: None of the regular party members or [=NPCs=] are really fond of him; even Eloy gets snappish after being around him too long. They only put up with him because he's willing to pay handsomely for their assistance.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Since Taka can't play with them all the time, they came up with a character who had a good reason to leave but also a good way to pop back in if he wants to play again.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Thinks only in terms of his own needs and ignorant to those of others. Partially this is justified by his desperation to find the next item before his time expires, but he also ignores the feelings of those helping him in this quest. Whenever someone complains about the trouble his presence causes, he simply reminisces about how much his own life sucks, and insists they should be happy to be so well-paid for helping him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Exacerbated by the fact that he's been stuck with this curse for 15 years now, but he doesn't show much concern for anything other than himself and getting his list items. He even manages to piss off ''[[{{ThePollyanna}} Eloy]]''.
* LaughingMad: Over a decade of randomly teleporting every 12 hours has left him... ''less than stable'', and he has a tendency to suddenly burst into laughter for no reason.
* TheLoad: The nature of his curse, limp and abrasive, snotty personality all but ensures he's had to gather most of the things on his list himself, as he's practically useless in most circumstances. Enforced by Taka, as when making him, Zito gave Taka a host of spells to choose from and he refused a lot of them, citing them as "Too useful."
* MoodSwinger: Has a tendency to jump from LaughingMad to growling out threats within the same sentence, especially when he's upset.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Goes by AJ.
* ThePigPen: Admits that, when he first meets the party, he hasn't bathed in months.
* PowerIncontinence: Was extremely adept at Transmutation magic, but his curse locked away his ability to use such spells, which opened him up to using all the other schools...but he's supposedly awful at them. And the only divination spell he can use is ''Locate Item''. [[{{Irony}} The very spell he mocked Divination for having in the first place when he was mocking an Aasimar Divination major.]]
* TheStoner: Looks like one, anyway.
* TheUnfettered: He's been at this hunt for so long he's long since stopped caring about anything other than lifting his curse.
* VerbalTic: Constantly points out how much time he has until his next teleportation.

!! Isoria
A guest character played by [=MasakoX=]. An Aasimar Sorceress who was sent from North Xellus to gather information, appearing in the Unwitnessed Kingdom before the Natural One-Ders. However, she's not exactly sure what her masters wanted her to find.
----
* AllGirlsLikePonies: Averted: when told the Unwitnessed Kingdom is inhabited by unicorns, she claims they were popular with other girls but she never got into the fixation.
* AnIcePerson: Isoria likes using spells that deal cold damage.
* TheComicallySerious: She remains unflappable even in the face of [[spoiler:Wake punching a gigantic duplicate of Eloy in the testicles]].
* CrossCastRole: A female character run by a male player.
* DeusExMachina: Provides the group with a way to safely transport the Unicorns to the surface.
* FlatCharacter: Unfortunately Masako visited at the climax of a story arc, meaning everyone was focused on that and thus Isoria didn't get much opportunity to demonstrate her personality; compare to AJ, who showed up during a lull in the action and thus had an entire episode centered around him.
%%* {{Foil}}: To AJ.
* InMediasRes: Her "masters" sent her through a portal, resulting in her showing up in the middle of the Trial of Wills and being thoroughly confused.
* NotSoDifferent: While she couldn't be less like Caster, she also expresses disgust in the same way he does.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: An Aasimar and a Sorceress who's apparently pretty well-versed in the past, and she's about the size of a halfling.

!! Keldemov
A guest character played by Brian. Woolly-Loxodon Cleric who is to be the new Great Kal's personal guard. Due to circumstances of the planned assassination, He needs the Oneder's help to get to his would-be king to keep him safe.
----
* AnArmAndALeg: He's missing a leg and a tusk, using his warhammer as a crutch to move around.
* TheComicallySerious: Along with with being not so above it all, Keldemov is a giant elephant man with a very deep voice who is built like a tank and is an obviously veteran fighter. He freaks out whenever he has to be diplomatic and, thus, tries to act nice and reasonable just to come off as incredibly awkward. He rolls a '''3''' on a persuasion on a little girl and yet still won out as she got a Nat 1.
* DropTheHammer: Has a Runic Warhammer.
* MundaneUtility: His Weapon of choice also functions as a pretty neat walking stick.
* NiceGuy: At first, he seems to be the type of man who wouldn't care about the common folk because of his demeanor and his position, but he always does his best to help people.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Introduced as a very serious man, but is scared by Madam Gigglesplinters and finds it hilarious that a crew of guards tried to arrest her and she, unsurprisingly, escaped almost immediately.
* PraetorianGuard: To be the head of it once the coronation happens.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Among other things, he asked the crew to give up their contraband of potions that Ezra managed to hide. After the Dagon [[spoiler:accidently kills Jillian with one]] he either didn't put up a fuss that they hid it or that they give them to Charlotte for study. He would also be within his rights to order that the destruction of the spider infested tower not be carried out since the dead bodies of the guard haven't yet been collected, but he let's the crew blow up the tower seemly because of the threat the spiders pose. He also points out that he can't arrest Madam Gigglesplinters because she's outside his jurisdiction which seems unreasonable [[spoiler:since she somehow has access to abyssal tumors]], but he is well aware that it would be pointless to try and arrest her. This is proven when it's revealed that the guards had already tried to arrest her and she immediately escaped.
* ShockAndAwe: He's a Tempest-domain cleric, so he's got access to plenty of this.
* StraightMan: To the One-ders, due to his station and also his job makes him one within minutes of meeting them.
