Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: As soon as he is introduced, he kills several angry bison single-handedly immediately after being dragged forward centuries through time.


* {{Badass}}: As soon as he is introduced, he kills several angry bison single-handedly immediately after being dragged forward centuries through time.


* DesignatedHero: Reeaallly straddles the line between this and AntiHero. It has been noted multiple times that Learoyd has almost no emotional connection to the animal people and that he only helped to rescue Keneil ''because he was also in danger.'' If he could have weaseled out of the situation without rescuing them he probably would have. He took advantage of the hospitality of a DyingTown and later suggested leaving a wounded Aelbert to die.

Added DiffLines:

* ChildMage: He's still a beginner, but his small array of spells (including creating fire and HealingHands) are quite useful on an adventure.


Added DiffLines:

* TheHeart: Because Learoyd certainly isn't fitting the role. Dusty is gentle and caring toward just about everyone he meets.
* HeroWorshipper: Deconstructed in Dusty. He and the other animals have a very set idea regarding what 'The Great Champion' should be like. A running theme is the fact that Dusty has met a legend and is coming to realize that he isn't so admirable and that nothing is as black-and-white as legend would have one believe.
* JumpedAtTheCall: As a youngster in a disciplined society Dusty was hungry for adventure. Thankfully The Great Champion arrives and Dusty helps him eagerly. He literally jumps at the call when [[spoiler: he jumps into a raging river to save Learoyd.]]

If he could have weaseled out of the situation without rescuing them he probably would have. He took advantage of the hospitality of a DyingTown and later suggested leaving a wounded Aelbert to die.


Added DiffLines:

* OutOfCharacterMoment: This is noted by Dusty. Learoyd breaks out of his normal dispassionate coldness when he learns about the Galateans treatment by their masters. RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil for him apparently as he is immediately enraged and insists they take their independence.

[[folder:'Dirty' Aelbert]]
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvaelbert.jpg]]

This juvenile goat encounters Learoyd and Dusty while seeking the revered Craglander elders for guidance regarding the mutations plaguing the goat and sheep communities. After a brief, violent misunderstanding with the heroes the three realize they have a common goal and 'Bertie' tags along with them. Aelbert is spirited and scrappy in a fight even if he isn't terribly bright. His pluck is rivaled only by his lust. The appellation 'Dirty' isn't for nothing...
----
* TheBerserker: He prefers blind attack over tactics. This is evidenced when he was up against a giant monster and grabbed a stick to ineffectively whack its shin.
* BoisterousBruiser: He has a lively personality that contrasts nicely with dour Learoyd and timid Dusty.
* {{Catchphrase}}: '''WA-HEY!'''
* ChallengeSeeker: He's not the kind to turn away from any challenge. No matter how daunting.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wears only his kilt-thing and a bracelet on each arm.
* HiddenDepths: Bertie is introduced as a clown, but when [[spoiler: Dusty is forced to kill the mutated Craglanders.]] We see that he has a sensitive, emotional side as well.
* HotBlooded: Bertie is classically masculine. Always ready for action and with no time for sitting around.
* MrViceGuy: Oh boy lust. When asked about the 'dirty' nickname he explains that ''"The nannies (ladies) like it dirty."'' Species is no barrier apparently. When he meets [[spoiler: the Galateans, living statues in the shape of topless women,]] he lusts after them instantly despite the fact that he has never seen anything like a human before.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: According to him the goats are simply the toughest and cleverest race of them all.


[[folder:Gharta - The Seeker]]
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvgharta.jpg]]

An ambitious and seasoned wizardess who has eschewed the posh lifestyles of the flying-city-dwellers for a life in the wilds of the surface. She strives to bring back the Great Champion, and the forces of magic itself. While she is the most experienced and passionate figure after "The Fall" she is no politician and struggles to put an end to Sandorst's conniving ways.

What Seven-Scars lacks in brains he more than makes up for in both brawn and tactical savvy to the point where even Learoyd is cautious of him.

to:

* CoolOldLady: Gharta AntiVillain: The bison want revenge on the city-dwellers for the generations of cruel subjugation they have endured because of them. Their anger is completely understandable.
* CombatPragmatist: He is definitely not above using subterfuge to secure a victory. For instance [[spoiler: at Goodfoot's behest Seven Scars hides
an ambitious army during what is supposed to be a diplomatic discussion.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Years of borderline-slavery have turned Seven-Scars into an unstoppable machine of vengeance.
* FatherToHisMen: He is nearly in tears when [[spoiler: Learoyd buries most of his army under tons of mountain debris.]] These are clearly Seven-Scars' brothers

Added DiffLines:

* HealingHands: A healing -and- purifying spell that Dusty has been increasingly skilled with.


Added DiffLines:

** Dusty has only grown kinder on his adventure to the point where he heals Dirty Aelbert immediately after the goat tried to attack him simply because Aelbert was sick.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperSoldier: What at first look like tattoos are eventually revealed to be bionic/organic technology enhancements to his body. Most of the sensory functions still work, but some (seemingly related to deploying some kind of external devices/weapons) are inoperable in this era. It's likely that in addition to training, this is what also allows Learoyd his effortless acrobatics and physical strength.


* NaiveNewcomer: Dunstan is ''very'' sheltered from his life in the sky-city (in addition to still being a pup), so while he may have some amount of book-learning, he is surprised to even learn that wool comes ''off the backs of sheep''. Dealing with the hard truths and kill-or-be-killed attitude of adventuring alongside Learoyd is another matter altogether.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: In a spat with Gharta he remarks that warthogs are a "foolish and unintelligent" race. Yet he is surprised when she brandishes a spell at him.


Added DiffLines:

* TimePassageBeard: Learoyd shaves his beard when he first arrives in the Autumnlands and his stubble grows as the days and weeks pass.


* TheWoobie: Poor Dunstan loses his father in the first issue and then has to come to terms with the shady political happenings in the Keneil wreckage. When [[spoiler: Learoyd is blown into a raging river by Sandorst]] he instantly blames himself for not preventing it.
