The daughter of Father Francis, and the only character who was never part of the Archangel. She's new to the whole Fear thing, and often needs things explained to her. She possesses healing powers, and has a couple light based attacks.

"I'm not as big on the whole revenge thing as you guys are. But yeah, I'd like a piece of this guy."

A member of the SMSC, who was killed by the Game Master. She teams up with Justin during the game, and eventually warms up to him, enough to reveal her true name.

"But now, I'm just a soul, with no body. I don't have the same limits I did back then. Now, I think I can take him!"

An Enhanced Slenderproxy who was once locked in jail and freed by Slender M An. He's extremely strong, and prefers to fight with his hands instead of other weapons.

  • Anti-Hero: A former servant of the Slender Man, who enjoys getting in fist fights.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Can throw boulders and cause earthquakes by punching the ground.
  • Dual Wielding: The only character who can. Justified, since he fights exclusively with gloves and claws.
  • Dumb Muscle: Not that dumb, but he's not exactly the smartest teammate.
  • I Shall Taunt You: His starting ability lets him taunt enemies, boosting their attack but locking their special skills.
  • Nice Guy: Despite his past, he's a pretty nice character and is accepting of the others, even if he does annoy them sometimes.

    Sergei Korchaviv/ The Faceless Bastard

  • Blow You Away: Has access to some wind attacks.
  • Brick Joke: before the rematch with Jack, he says "Go to hell, and when you get there, tell Ben Malkator I said hi.", to which Jack replies "You can tell him yourself." When the party encounters Malkator, Faceless's first reaction is "Um... hi."
  • Heel Realization; Inverted. Upon speaking to him in Justin's house, he realizes there might still be some good in him.
    "I guess we're both insane."
    "What do you mean?"
    "You're crazy enough to think there's still good in me. I'm almost crazy enough to believe you."
  • Lightning Bruiser: Very quick and able to deal a lot of damage at higher levels.
  • Machete Mayhem: Amongst other lightweight swords, he prefers these.
  • Magic Knight: Much like Justin, only he emphasizes speed over power.
  • Red Baron: Calls himself the Faceless Bastard because he cut off his own face in life.
  • The Rival: To Justin, especially if you get his rival path.
  • Sadist: Very violent, and won't hesitate to strike down an opponent. He even inflicts heavily bleeding wounds sometimes, and his final weapon cauterizes wounds shut to add to the pain.
  • Shock and Awe: Uses lightning based attacks.
  • Sinister Scythe: His final weapon is a special scythe made to cauterize wounds.

  • Lightning Bruiser: The faster character, able to attack several enemies in one turn with some of his skills.
