!!Kasuga

!!Lord Vladimir
->Lord Vladimir is the ancient and wise Lord of Shadows whom Arthur meets during his travels and who becomes his "mentor" for a short time. He resides on top of the Marahmoun, a colossal mountain shrouded in shadows, in a large mansion he has constructed for himself. Vladimir is a TrueNeutral character who lives by a very peculiar philosophy which combines solipsism, extreme solitude and asociality. He is indifferent towards all other forms of life and maintains a distant, cold and very calm character at all times. Not much is known about his past or personal life, because "only he himself can know it."
* AmbiguousDisorder: His "philosophy" often seems like this.
* CatchPhrase: "Only you yourself can know it." He uses the phrase to keep himself away from other people's problems, as he really doesn't care about anyone at all.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Vladimir definitely isn't evil - he has "purified" himself from the taint Shadow creatures normally have.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment
* MysteriousPast: Even the creators of the films don't know much about his past.
* Really700YearsOld: Clean-shaven and smooth-skinned, he looks quite young, even though he really is the oldest being in the universe after the Sun Wizard, the Count of Night and the Spirits of Nature.
* TheSacredDarkness: Or the sacred Shadow, to be exact. Unlike other Shadow creatures, his form isn't jagged and crude and his eyes are deep blue instead of black. Vladimir believes in the purity of the element of Shadows.
* ZenSurvivor

!!Leksa Lepääjä/Leksa Hereilläolija
->Leksa Lepääjä is a wise, mysterious and extremely drowsy magician met by Arthur and Samuel prior to the creation of the Empire. It is said that he can sleep 25 hours in a day. He is used by the Emperors to seal the Chasm of Dreams and thus prevent the God of Dreams of entering the Exterior, but he accidentally opens the Chasm and frees the God from his slumber. He is frequently used as a source of information by Arthur in the following films, and in the last film he finally awakes for real and [[spoiler:[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu destroys the God of Dreams.]]]]
* AmusingAlien: Although he looks just like a human being.
* BackStory: According to WordOfGod, Leksa is one of the most powerful beings in the universe, and has once saved the world from a sinister being called [[TomTheDarkLord the Boris]]. By the time of the films, he has been increasing his powers by sleeping for thousands of years, and in the final film he finally awakens, more powerful than ever before.
* BilingualBonus: Leksa is a Finnish first name, "lepääjä" means "rester" and "hereilläolija" means "the one who is awake".
* CatchPhrase: ''(in a drowsy voice):'' "What time is it? You woke me up!"
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His first appearance definitely is one.
* LetsGetDangerous: In the fourth film.
* MeaningfulName: His name is very meaningful in Finnish, at least - see BilingualBonus.
* MysteriousPast: His past has been revealed by Nosources, but isn't discussed in the films at all.

* SleepyHead
* TookALevelInBadass

!!The God of Sun/The Star
->The creator of the universe, who sacrificed herself to restrain the God of Dreams (which failed) and became a giant Star in the middle of the universe.

* FemaleAngelMaleDemon: Her and the God of Dreams.

During the creation of the world, he was [[SealedEvilInACan sealed inside a chasm]] which leads into his realm, the Land of Dreams. His aide, the Count of Night, seeks to free him once and for all, so that he could conquer the universe and cast the Star into eternal darkness.
* AmplifierArtifact: The Crystal of Shadows is one to him.
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: He gets resurrected by the Highest Court near the end of the final film to attend Arthur's trial, but is now dormant.]]

!!The Sun Wizard
->The Sun Wizard is the aide of the God of Sun, HighPriest of the Hamramists, the most powerful Light creature in existence, and also one of the first beings ever created. He lives in solitude in the Sun Mountains, guarding the essence of the God of Sun - the Star - from outside intruders. After thousands of years of utter seclusion, he gets involved in the creation of the Exterior and has got to refight his nemesis, the Count of Night, once again.
* BigGood
* BloodBrothers: Him and, quite surprisingly, Arthur in the fourth film.
* ForeignLanguageTirade: The Sun Wizard speaks Finnish quite well, even though he hasn't actually ever studied the language. Justified, as the speech of magical creatures is always (magically) translated into the native language of the listener.
* ElementalPowers
* HolyHandGrenade: He uses his Light elemental powers to, for instance, destroy mountains.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers
* LightEmUp: The Sun Wizard is a Light creature and possesses immense Light-related magical powers.
* LoyalPhlebotinum: His sword is this to him.
* MasterSwordsman
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Especially during the Battle of Sun Mountains.
* Really700YearsOld: In fact, approximately 7000 years old.
* ReluctantWarrior
* TheOlderImmortal: The Sun Wizard is older than any other being in the universe excluding the Count of Night.
* WarriorMonk: More of the Eastern type, although he does wield a sword.
* WizardBeard: Averted. Although being a wizard thousands of years old, he does not have even a trace of a beard.

!!The (first) Count of Night
->The Count of Night is a shadowy entity created by the God of Dreams to be his aide. He is the [[ArchEnemy nemesis]] of the Sun Wizard. After the creation of a world and the imprisonment of the God of Dreams, he escaped and stayed in exile for thousands of years, until the creation of the Empire. He emerges from his hideout, seeking retribution and trying to find a way to free his former God once and for all.
->Not to be confused with Arthur, who later serves as both the "second" and the third Counts of Night[[note]]Actually the "second" Count of Night is just Arthur's soul placed in the first Count of Night's body, with some traces of the first one left inside[[/note]].
* BackFromTheDead: In a way. After his death in the first film, the newly-awakened God of Dreams places the soul of Arthur into his body, with some traces of his former self still lingering inside. His apparition is also seen in the fourth film, where he serves as the prosecutor in Arthur's postmortem trial.
* BreakingOutTheBoss: His primary goal along with killing the Sun Wizard and/or destroying the Star, and the only one of his objectives in which he actually succeeds.
* CastingAShadow
* ChewingTheScenery
* DarkIsNotEvil: According to WordOfGod, the Count of Night is not really evil, although he is presented as an antagonist in the films.
* ElementalPowers
* KilledOffForReal: He is successfully killed by the Sun Wizard near the ending of ''Revolution''. Although his ghost does return in the fourth film.
