The Main Squad
- Fire-Forged Friends: Or getting there at least.
- Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Somewhat. With Axel being The Cynic, Lucky being The Conflicted, Uthal being The Realist, and Mortimer being The Apathetic.
- Hidden Depths: The entire Party seems to have a lot more going on than what meets the eye.
- Morality Kitchen Sink: It is very hard to place the Partys overall alignment and morals.
- Odd Friendship: The entire party is an interesting combination of people who are at least friendly-ish towards each other.
- Pet the Dog: Although being a party of morally ambiguous and Deadpan Snarkers, everyone has (at least attempted to) pet Molly.
- Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: With the exception of Lucky, the entire Party is a collection of unconventional and very interesting characters.
- The Role Player: All four players are pretty good about this, attempting to negotiate with enemies whenever possible and occasionally making suboptimal decisions that are in line with their characters.
Mortimer, The Absolute Fucking Wildcard
Mortimer is a chaotic wizard and alchemist of unknown orgin dedicated to doing: Fuck-all, weird people watching, and involuntary experiments most often including 1-3 unsuspecting individuals. He is played by the chaoticest of neutral D&D players Fink.
- Animal Motif: A crow, which was explicitly shown during the Masquerade arc, where Mortimer went out of his way to get an outfit heavily resembling a crow, going as far to even paint second-hand feather pants with silver paint.
- Author Phobia: Inverted. Mortimer seems to have no issue with death and dying, and takes a rather eccentric interest in necromancy.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's The Loonie and the comic relief. He's also a highly-proficient magic user with an arsenal of spells.
- Black Mage: Seems to specialize mostly in creepy illusion magic.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: With strange mannerisms, aloof demeanour and sudden outburst, Mortimer tends to come across as this most of the time.
- Eccentric Artist: Mortimer takes great joy in his illusion magic and other tricks.
- Master of Disguise: Big fan of the disguise-self spell.
- Mysterious Past: Very little is known about Mortimers past, and he seems in no rush to disclose anything to the party.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Either has no sense of it or doesnt care, who knows? The people around him certainly fucking dont.
- Shipper on Deck: Literally on the deck of The Fair Maiden. Mortimer seemed to find great joy in meddling between Lucky and Kerthek, although his motives for doing so were, as they often are, unclear.
- The Trickster: From session 1 he was fucking ready.
- Vague Age: Who the fuck knows. Youre probably better off not asking.
A snarky flamboyant rouge with an exotic performer background. He often comes off as sarcastic and snappy, but is to an extent kind-hearted. He is played by the most fitted player for this character, Dave.
- Agent Peacock: Axel is never one to back down from a challenge, and takes great pride in looking flawless doing it.

- Half-Human Hybrid: Half incubus half human.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: Hinted at. Despite his seemingly Awesome Ego, Axel shows slight signs of self-loathing and insecurity, especially regarding the past events and betrayal from Sharius.

- Mr. Fanservice: Attractive queer snarky lavender cambion with background angst like dont @ me.
- Protective Charm: Axel got some sick horn-gear from Duke Baron.

- Sticky Fingers: In true rouges fashion.
- Vagabond Buddies: With Sharius pre-betrayal.

Gulli is the self-appointed Dungeon Master of The Boyfriend & Roommates campaign. She tends to prefer a more narrative playing style, and is happy to temporarily ignore any rule for the sake of plot, as long isnt the two essential ones.
- Being God Is Hard: Inverted. She ironically lampshades this trope throughout the campaign but expresses genuine enjoyment at her role.
- The Chessmaster: Zigzagged. Who knows at this point.
- God Is Flawed: And has an unhealthy obsession with Tieflings.
- Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Heavily invoked. She does not have the strictest adherence to The D&D E5 Rulebook, to put it mildly. Instead preferring more homebrew rules.
