Recurring Party Members

     Artix von Krieger 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/artix2_3.png
"My name is Artix von Krieger and I am a Paladin who has dedicated his entire life to battling the undead."

A paladin with an uncontrollable compulsion to slay the undead. Prone to making groan-worthy puns. He is involved in several storylines in the game, but his most prominent one is in the "Darkness Orb" Saga where he and the Hero infiltrate the Necropolis and fight Noxus. He is also a key ally in the fight against Caitiff in Book 3.


  • Bizarre Taste in Food: Has a particular fondness for wasabi, and puts it on everything.
  • Blade Spam: Two of his skills, Combo (Ultimate Light Combo Attack!) and Slash (Undead Slayer Slash!), are multi-hit attacks that do Light-elemental damage in four slashes.
    • Before his update, he had one skill called Holy Strike, in which he made a four-hit Light attack on one enemy target. And before that, he could randomly do that whenever the player used the 'Attack!' command.
  • Brain Washed And Crazy: He gets mind controlled by Drakonnan during the Fire War, and serves as the general of one of the waves.
  • Combat Medic: As a guest (after a much-needed update), Artix can heal the player's character with his skill, Restore, at the cost of 30 MP.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: His heroic impulses are so strong, that he cannot even momentarily resist the urge to go undercover and will vanquish a evil at the sight of it. Even as a kid, he couldn't not help Vayle when she was in trouble.
  • Crutch Character: The original crutch character before Tomix and Aegis showed up. Artix was far stronger than any other Party Member at the time, especially after his upgrade during the Darkness Orb Saga.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Artix has brown hair and equally brown eyes.
  • Declaration of Protection: To Vayle, during his childhood... At least, until she got home to her brother.
    Artix: I will get you back to your brother as soon as I can! I think I see a tunnel over there.
    Artix: There is no need to be scared. Follow me, I will protect you!
  • Determinator: He'll never give up. Ever. Especially in regards to slaying the undead.
  • Doomed Hometown: The village where he (and Vayle) lived was wiped out by the Green Mist, which turned everyone but Artix and Vayle into zombies. It was set on fire and Artix saw it burn.
  • Finishing Move:
    • As a guest, his skill, Ultimate Light Combo Attack! (Combo) serves as a Limit Break of sorts, given it's normally not available from the start of a battle (unlike his other multi-hit attack, Slash/Undead Slayer Slash.) It's a Light attack that damages the enemy with four critical hits.
    • Storywise, however, he can summon a spear made of pure white light with draconic features as seen in Artix Vs. The Undead, which he uses to finish off Edgar, destroy its Spiritcrystal and unveil the Necromantress.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: Artix doesn't know at first that he already knows the Necromantress, but he does.
  • Forgotten Friend, New Foe: Downplayed. Though he and Vayle met many years ago, they weren't exactly friends—just a boy and a girl who met on a fateful day of their lives, when each took a different path. Destiny had it they'd clash again as enemies later down the road.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: One of the more fourth wall aware characters in the game.
  • Herd-Hitting Attack: His skill, Light of Justice! (Light), attacks all foes.
  • Hidden Badass: Before his much needed upgrade, he was only a level 3. But a message always accompanied recruiting him, saying he could take on enemies that were hundred level higher than him. He would remain the strongest guest until Tomix showed up.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Surprisingly averted. Despite dedicating his life to eradicating the undead, he remains a jolly Ideal Hero who is pure of heart. Though he has shown shades of being Ax-Crazy and being guily of Van Helsing Hate Crimes
  • Holy Burns Evil: In the Artix Vs. Undead that promoted the game, when Edgar grabs him, Artix uses his paladin powers to burn Edgar's arms off and release himself.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: In two of his skills, Light and Blind, he uses spells of only light to damage his enemies.
  • Hunter of Monsters: Artix fights the forces of darkness most fiercely, and has dedicated his entire life to battling The Undead. His motivation for doing so is pretty varied: first and foremost, most of them are tortured souls who Cannot Self Terminate and he was to put them all out of their misery by freeing them; they're used by Necromancer mainly to hurt other people, so he wants to protect the innocent; the Paladin Order's servitude to "the light" puts them at odds with the commonly Darkness-aligned undead; it's a bit personal since he lost his village to an Undeath-inducing mist; and finally, pleasure since he's either a Blood Knight, Good Feels Good, or both, because he really enjoys exorcising the Undead.
  • Ideal Hero: He usually comes across as this, but it's downplayed. He fights with honor, his goodness is genuine, he looks out for the innocent, stands up for what's morally correct, and serves as a role model for other heroes in many ways. He is, however, not without flaws: for instance he has an unhealthy obsession for exorcising the undead even when they are benign.
  • In Harm's Way: Artix practically lives for fighting and battling the Undead. He seemingly loves slaying them, to the point where it's almost an addiction and he can't restrain himself.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: As a child, the Darkness Primal Orb whispered in his mind, tempting him with great power if he gave himself to the darkness... but he didn't. In fact, that was the very moment he decided to turn his back on the darkness forever and become a power of good. Vayle, on the other hand...
  • Keet: Easily excitable and cheerful even in the darkest of moments.
  • Kryptonite Factor: The colour pink, as revealed in the quest Pinkonreach. It temporarily blinds him if there's too much of it.
    Artix: N-no... too m-much... PINK! MY EYESS!!!!1 AAHH!
    Artix: I AM BLIND!! I CANNOT SEE!!! WHAT EVIL IS THIS?!
  • Leeroy Jenkins: He tends to jump at the chance to exorcize any undead.
  • Light 'em Up: All of Artix's attacks do Light-elemental damage.
  • Light Is Good: He is one of the purest heroes in the series, and all of his attacks center around Light.
  • Lighter and Softer: Even in the darkest times, Artix's goofy cheeriness never fails to lift the mood.
  • Loyal Animal Companion: Daimyo the undead slaying pomeranian, based on Artix's real life dog who passed away in 2017.
  • Magic Knight: A paladin, with healing/defensive powers, and capable of Light-elemental attacks.
  • Meaningful Name: Krieger means "warrior" in German.
  • Mentor Archetype: In Book 3 he has taken up training new Paladin recruits.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His eagerness to vanquish the undead has landed the Hero in hot water a few times.
    • In the Gatekeeper quest, the Hero had already come up with an elaborate plan to get past the guards which was close to succeeding. However Artix cannot restrain himself from attacking and they end up fighting anyway.
    • In Frostval 2007, he shows up slays the spirits of Frostval when they were just about to help Xan have a Heel–Face Turn. This leaves the Hero on his/her own to stop Xan and save the world.
    • In Frostval 2014, the AdventureQuest Worlds Artix uses a Time Travel Fairy's wand to merge all the timelines, so all the heroes could be together for Frostval. However this causes all the heroes to merge with different versions of themselves (resulting in some bizarre appearances), bringing Celestia back from the dead, pulling many characters from other Artix Entertainment games into DragonFable, as well as the different versions of Akriloth merging into the most powerful version yet.
  • Noodle Incident: What happened to the Blinding Light of Destiny has never been fully explained. Artix only says It's a Long Story that ended in a battle against a Master Necromancer, who summoned a creature from the Plane of Eternal Darkness. Artix couldn't slay it and so had to seal it in his battleaxe—creating the Shadowreaper of Doom in the process.
  • One-Man Army: Artix can vanquish entire armadas of undead with ease. During the assault on the Necropolis, it's revealed the heroes of Falconreach took out 5 million undead together, while Artix took out the other 5 million all by himself.
  • Out of Focus: He vanishes for quite a while from the end of Book 2 to late Book 3. He finally gets in contact with the Hero at the Swordhaven Tournament before appearing in person for the "Growing Shadows" Saga.
  • The Paladin: To the extreme.
  • Parental Abandonment: Artix lost both parents to the Green Mist when he was twelve-or-so years old.
  • Parental Substitute: Lady Celestia, who nursed him back to health and began training him to battle the forces of evil, took care of him after his village was burned. He had enough tea to last him a lifetime, though.
  • Pungeon Master: Likes making puns, much to the derision of his fellow allies... and The Undead.
    • When encountered in the Cemetery, he has list of things he can't say fron of the undead: they're puns.
  • Quest Giver: For the "Darkness Orb" quest chain, and a few Amityvale quests.
  • Reaction Shot: In Moonridge: Saved!, along with Lady Vayle. "Could this be the same Vayle I met when I was a little boy?"
  • Series Mascot: Alongside Twilly and Robina the Hood, he is the most frequently used in promotions for the game, not to mention the game's company is named after him.
  • Speak in Unison: With the Hero, in a lengthy sequence in the Moonridge: Saved! quest.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Artix understands the barks that Daimyo gives.
  • Stag Party: As Rolith's best man, Artix organizes a bachelor par-tay—a wrestling championship against undead!
  • Starting a New Life: As a child, his hometown was wiped out by the Green Mist and lost everything, only to be found by Celestia. A few years later, he joined the Paladin order as a paladin-in-training. In his own words:
    Artix: I put all thoughts of the village behind and looked forward to my new life.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • Artix has always been a badass, but his guest (for a long time) was non-scaled at level 3 and had just one skill (Holy Strike). After a much needed update, he is now level-scaled and has five new skills—Ultimate Light Combo Attack!, Restoring Light, Undead Slayer Slashnote , Blinding Light and Light of JUSTICE!—making him once again one of the stronger guests.
    • In Book 3, he reacquires his Blinding Light of Destiny, becoming yet even more powerful. While he does have fewer skills, the ones he now has are devastatingly powerful. His default attack does 200% damage (215% damage against Undead), his Purify which is an upgraded version of his old "Ultimate Light Combo Attack!" which does 5 hits of 100% damage each (for total 500% damage), and Restoring Light which full heals Artix.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Holy Wasabi.
    • As seen in Too Many Cooks, Artix carries it around with him, and puts it on everything.
    • In The Funeral, he leaves some Holy Wasabi on Warlic's memorial statue.
    • In Critical Failure!, he slipped some Holy Wasabi in the Hero's backpack, thinking s/he "might find it useful."
  • 24-Hour Armor: He wears it in bed, he wears it in the shower, he wears it in battle, he wears it all day and night!
  • Van Helsing Hate Crimes: Artix slays the undead on sight, without a second of consideration for the consequences and if they really are a threat. While it's true most undead are souls of the deceased forced to serve the evil necromancer controlling them, some of them aren't doing any harm and prefer their undead state. This even includes benevolent spirits trying to help the heroes. This is played with a few times.
    • In Frostval 2007, the Hero meets the Ghosts of Frostval Past, Present, and Future and explain they will be capable of giving Xanta Claus a Heel–Face Turn and stop him from destroying the world. However Artix shows up out of the blue and destroys all three spirits. When the Hero is recovering from shock, Artix misinterprets this for gratitude and reassures the Hero that the ghosts would no longer haunt the town.
    • The Hero comes across a troop of friendly Necromancers who use the undead to perform music as entertainment for guests. The Hero watches the happy scene and makes a mental note to ensure Artix doesn't find this place.
    • In AdventureQuest, this is taken to its logical conclusion: that he can become a Knight Templar / Well-Intentioned Extremist. Considering not all undead are bound to necromancersnote , he may commit Van Helsing Hate Crimes, and when he decides to wage a war against all necromancers, his single-mindedness won't allow him to listen to neutral necromancers nor stop the conflict, which ended up bringing about the disruption of Lore's ley lines and the Paladin Order's ex-communication from "the church" by the Lady of Light herself.
  • Watching Troy Burn: During his childhood he witnessed as his home village was invaded by the green mist and his people and family were turned into zombies.
  • Weapon of Choice: Axes. He seems to have taken a liking to the weapon ever since he found himself fighting through the forest to save Vayle and flee his village with the hatchet he was using to chop wood.
    • After losing his Blinding Light of Destiny, however, he takes to wielding a sword (the Warrior class' Default Sword.)
    • He is once again seen with his trademark axe in Book 3.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: In Hero's Heart Day 2013 quest, Bachelor Party, the player plays as him in the Defensive Artix armor, he prefers Honor Before Reason and gets his ass kicked by Alina's bridesmaids because he won't attack them at all.
    • In battle, when the player clicks the Attack! command, he will say "Nope!" and do nothing for the rest of the turn. His two other skills are similarly useless: Explain, in which he raises his hand and shouts "Please let me explain!" and has no effect, and Holy Strike, in which the foam hammer glows, but before completing the attack, he says "Ya know what....nope. Can't do it." and doesn't attack.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: The night of the Green Mist Artix "lost everything and everyone that [he] ever knew" and had to start a new life.

     Robina the Hood/Princess Victoria 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/robina.jpg
"Robina the Hood at your service. Steal from the rich, give to the.... cute little cuddly wuddly forest creatures!"
Click here for her Book 3 appearance. 

In her own words: "Robina the Hood at your service. Steal from the rich, give to the.... cute little cuddly wuddly forest creatures!" Well, that explains how those monsters got all that gold.


  • A Friend in Need: She is one of the people the Hero enlists during the fight against Caitiff.
  • Archer Archetype: Though the game refers to her as a Ranger, she is agile with a bow and arrows and is often seen helping defend towns such as Willowshire and Falconreach from various enemies.
  • Captain Ersatz: Literally a female Robin Hood.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Has marksman accuracy that rivals that of Zhoom.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Has these and is one of the most idealistic heroes in the game.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: During the Gala in Book 3, she helps the Hero protect King Alteon while escaping from the castle.
  • King Incognito: She is really one of the daughters of King Alteon, Princess Victoria. She keeps her entire Robina Hood identity and activities secret from him because she knows he would disapprove of what she is doing. However, in "Victoria's Secret", her identity is finally exposed to her royal family and her father after some deliberation accepts Victoria's double life as she is (according to the Hero and herself) helping Lore by doing what she does.
    • In Book 3, after the rise of the Rose it is implied that she has gone into hiding and is masquerading as a young man named Cinquefoil. Though there has been no confirmation yet, the fact that Cinquefoil has red hair and blue eyes like Robina, stands in the exact same spot that Robina did in previous books and was seen helping to defend Falconreach with bow and arrows during the latest Friday 13th war, it's extremely likely that Cinquefoil is Robina.
  • Money Spider: She steals from the rich and gives to the monsters. Apparently, she is the one responsible for most of the gold you find on them.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Has these in her Cinquefoil disguise.
  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: Princess Victoria is secretly the legendary outlaw bandit, Robina the Hood.
  • Quest Giver: Of several Dragon Egg Saga quests, and some quests lying around Surewood.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Going down to her waist.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: In Sir Ano's quest chain, The Hero finds out that Robina is actually the secret identity of King Alteon's second daughter, Princess Victoria.
  • Rebellious Princess: In spite of, or more likely even because of his own career, King Alteon doesn't exactly approve of any of his daughters getting involved in adventuring, which is part of the reason Princess Victoria poses as an outlaw named Robina. In Book 1, she is a bandit that steals from the rich and gives to the monsters. In Book 3, this goes much further. Since her father is working with The Rose to wipe out magic, she has decided to pose as a boy named Cinquefoil to infiltrate The Rose, understand their true intentions, and to some extent, work against them.
  • Samus Is a Girl: In Book 3, she poses as a boy named Cinquefoil in order to infiltrate The Rose. Her disguise is remarkably effective to the point that even her build looks decidedly masculine.
  • Series Mascot: Along with Artix and Twilly, she has constantly been used to promote games by Artix Entertainment.
  • Warrior Princess: Likes masquerading as a warrior, stealing gold from bandits and giving it away to random monsters for heroes to find and pick up later.

     Valencia Surehunter 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/valencia_book_1.png
"Why hello there Adventurer! I'm Valencia, world famous rare item hunter! Could I interest you in this rare statue? Only 1 Billion gold!"
Click here for her Book 3 appearance. 

A rare item hunter who took over the "family business" after her father went missing in search of "The Ultimate Treasure". She is eventually reunited with her father, but he turns out to be a villain. Often an ally to the Hero, most prominently during the "Dragon Egg Saga", "Earth Orb Saga", and several "Valtrith" quests. Has something of a rivalry with Symone DuBellmount.


  • Bare Your Midriff: Her initial look. Loses it after the Time Skip between Book 2 and Book 3.
  • Bi the Way: Probably. She'll flirt with The Hero regardless of their gender (in both DragonFable and AdventureQuest).
  • Enemy Mine: She reluctantly joins forces with her rival Symone to help the Hero take down Baron Valtrith.
  • Eyes Always Shut: In Book 1, while she's invited as a party member, during battles her eyes always appear shut.
  • Family Business: She is a renowned Treasure Hunter, just like her father. She mentions it when the player talks to her in That A Way.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: She has purple hair, which she seems to have inherited from her father.
  • Knife Nut: As a rogue, she's has throwing daggers as an attack.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother is never shown nor mentioned. She only has her father, Trey Surehunter.
  • Quest Giver: Most importantly, of the Bacon Origins questchain.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has tailbone-length hair.
  • The Rival: To Symone, due to Treasure Hunters and Monster Hunters not getting along.
  • Treasure Hunter: Her job title.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Originally she was always a fixed level 8, and had one special ability which was knife throwing. She received an upgrade along with Artix and now gets scaled with the Hero. She also has three new abilities including; a double hitting attack, a guaranteed critical hit, and additional health potions to the standard two.
  • Weapon of Choice: A Scimitar in Book 1, and a Flame-bladed sword in Book 3.

     Warlic 

Click here for him in his younger years. 

The Blue Mage is one of the most powerful NPCs in the game. In fact, he's so powerful that he rarely interferes in anything because he can't risk his power getting out of control. Has a rivalry with Xan that goes way, way back.


  • 10-Minute Retirement: Book 3. He's locked himself in his tower for a few years. Justified, since he's still dealing with the after-effects of being split into two beings, and is trying to fully regain "enough control that [he's] not a danger to everyone around [him]."
  • All-Powerful Bystander: Justified. For all the almost unlimited capacity for magic (given his lack of need for mana) and his extensive knowledge about magic, he's one of the most powerful characters in the game, but chooses to do nothing against threats directly (...unless someone really needs him) because it may as well be The End of the World as We Know It.
  • And Your Reward Is Infancy: His reward for saving the Ateala from his father, Wargoth, was to become a human baby and end up in Lore, with his memories intact. He didn't take well to the situation, though.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Xan, who had dedicated his entire life to destroying Warlic.
  • Arc Hero: Initially he was this for the "Wrath of Xan" Saga, but he ends up taking center stage once again in "Book 2: Elemental Dissonance" which revolves around him.
  • Archnemesis Dad: His late father, Wargoth ("Sr.")
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Actually an Arrogant Magic Guy, but he still fits the trope during his Academy years.
  • The Archmage: The title he is known by.
  • Author Avatar: Of John (JD) Adams, the real life Warlic, who is in charge of Music and Coding.
  • Back from the Dead: Lampshaded. His memorial statue in Falconreach has "he got better" scratched into it.
  • Badass Bookworm: Though he's a master of the magical arts already, he continues his studies to discover the secrets of the universe.
  • Badass Long Robe: During the course of the story, he wears a long, sumptuous blue robe.
  • Being Human Sucks: Warlic definitely felt like this during the first decades of his exile on Lore in human form.
  • Big Good: Serves this role alongside Artix and Lady Celestia. He is tasked with maintaining the elemental order, and is one of the most important allies.
    • This view was tarnished after Book 2, and the Alexander Saga, though. Both in- and out-of-universe. After all, someone destroyed his magic tent in the Elemental Foothills.
  • Break the Haughty: He's a Jerkass until the point when Jaania is frozen and Alex is set on fire. He is immediately horrified as he's realized he's no better than his father, blinded by his ego, and promptly changes his attitude in life, trying to atone for what he's done.
  • Create Your Own Villain: It is Warlic's actions of accidentally setting Alexander on fire and turning the flames to healing flames, which led to the creation of Xan the Insane Pyromancer. Warlic is fully aware of this and blames himself.
  • Curtains Match the Window: He had brown eyes and brown hair in his Academy years, unlike his present/future self, who is purple-eyed and white-haired.
  • Death Is Cheap: He dies during the Elemental Storm War, killed by Nythera, but he's revived not too long after.
    Warlic: Dying is of little consequence to me, I have been to Death's Realm before. We all float there.
  • Deus Exit Machina: He might theoretically be able to solve almost every problem you come up against... except that using too much magic would make him overload on mana and probably destroy the world.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He is capable of outfighting the Elemental Avatars, and did so once to make them spare his apprentice.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: When his feet can be seen under his Badass Long Robe, he's always barefoothed.
  • Fountain of Youth: In the Alexander Saga, it's the second time he's experienced teenagehood (in a human body, at that), much to his annoyance.
  • Generation Xerox: Downplayed. Once he splits into "Wargoth" and "the Professor", his Infernal half goes on a rampage on Somorah, the very same planet his father (whose name is Wargoth) had once terrorized. Like his father, Warlic's half (called "Wargoth" because the Ateala still remembered his father and mistook Warlic for him) terrorized them... before destroying the planet.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: In the Alexander Saga questchain, he's got a mustache, in contrast to Alexander's beard... and his future clean-shaven, atoner self.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: It is unclear whether he is a literal Half-Human Hybrid, but he is not entirely human. He is in fact, partially demonic in nature.
  • Handicapped Badass: For reasons, he can't use his magic to its full capacity and so he rarely takes direct action.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Jaania rejects Warlic's apologies and freezes him away into a prison of ice.
  • Helping Would Be Kill Stealing: The secondary reason Warlic doesn't just wipe out all the bad guys (or control the world for that matter).
  • Hidden Depths: He is deceptively more powerful than he first appeared when the Hero teams up with him to take down Xan. This was only a fraction of his true power, which rivals that of the Elemental Avatars.
  • Human Mom Nonhuman Dad: His mother was human; his father was an infernal.
  • Human Popsicle: His fate at the end of Book 2, along with the Hero and Xan, thanks to Jaania. He eventually manages to break free and starts The Hero's thawing before being forced to flee... only to lock himself in his tower.
  • Humanity Ensues: For rebelling against his father, he lost his wings and Infernal form, and was trapped in a human body (as a baby), and forced to go through a second childhood. He's not keen to gaining such humanity.
  • I Am Not My Father: Warlic strives to not be like his father, the original Wargoth. In The Duel, he says to himself that he "was supposed to be better than [his] father."
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: During his Academy years, as a result of being trapped in a human body and discovering that he could no longer use his once 'unlimited' power however he pleased, he disliked the very idea of having to compete with a puny human (that is, Alex) and feels the need to prove himself as superior... until their duel.
  • Irony: While technically not killed, Jaania imprisons Warlic (and Xan) in a block of ice, just like how he accidentally got her imprisoned.
  • Jerkass: During his years in the Magic Academy in Swordhaven, he was very arrogant and egocentric, with a devil-may-care attitude. Basically, a Jerk Jock to Alexander. Thankfully, he Took a Level in Kindness and much needed slice of Humble Pie.
    • According to Geo (and explicitly stated in The Master Apprentice/The Duel), the reason why he's a jerk in the Alexander questchain is because he remembers how amazing he was in his Infernal form, before rebelling against his tyrant father (standing up for what he thought was right) and paying for it: Reduced to mere humanity, forced to rebuild himself and go through a second childhood, trapped on Lore (and having lost his wings), unable to use his power freely lest he 'sploded... he's indeed frustrated.
    The Professor: He was... in a new place, a new body. Arrogant. Impetuous.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: As the Professor and Wargoth merge back into one body, his memories of what happened during the split are a bit fuzzy, to say the least. However, the Hero suspects he knows more than he lets on.
    Warlic: No. No, I won't remember.
    The Hero: (thinks): Or you don't want to....
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Xan forces him to fight The Hero.
  • Literal Split Personality: At the end of Book 1, having surpassed his mana limit, he splits into the Professor (his human half, and who represents his fragility and feelings), and Wargoth (his Infernal half, who represents supreme power). Neither remember who they were before the split, until the Professor deduced it.
  • Love at First Sight: He falls in love with Jaania from the moment he first meets her.
  • Mage Tower: Shares one with Cysero, which The Hero enters in The Coming Storm and Corundum Corruption.
  • Magic Staff: His Weapon of Choice.
  • Merlin and Nimue: The Merlin to Nythera's Nimue.
  • Minored in Ass-Kicking: He actively refrains from fighing anyone... unless he really has to. On the other hand, he prefers to assist people with his knowledge of the magical arts.
  • Mystical White Hair: 200 years after Jaania's freezing, he has white hair.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He immediately regrets setting Xan's face on fire and trapping Jaania in a crystal. He also probably regrets almost killing everyone as Wargoth. Only time will tell, though.
  • My Greatest Failure: According to the Professor, one of Warlic's greatest regrets was (and is) what he did to Xan all those years ago. What happened to Jaania is most likely the other one.
  • Must Make Amends: He is remorseful about his jerkassery during his school years towards Xan and the part he played in trapping Jaania in an Ice crystal. He's tried to redeem himself for two-hundred years by the time the Hero meets him for the first time.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He is responsible for Xan and Jaania's descent into madness and villainy.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished:
    • When he was young, he rebelled against his father, Wargoth "Sr.", and though he saved the Ateala from Somorah, his wings were taken from him and was cast to Lore, where he was trapped in human form and had to relearn how to control his powers.
    • More recently, Warlic helped cast a Light protective spell all around Falconreach to shield it from the Mysterious Stranger's darkness.... but he surpassed his mana limit, and split in two halves (The Professor and Wargoth) as he tried to get away from Lore as quickly as possible. Once they merged into Warlic again, his Infernal half had already gone on a rampage for being repressed for so long, and Jaania was quick to rub all of his mistakes and actions (some of which he had no control over) in his face, only to freeze him alongside the Hero and Xan.
  • Not as You Know Them: The Alexander Saga, where he's an arrogant prick in contrast with the level-headed helpful archmage we know.
  • Not So Different:
  • Our Demons Are Different: He is part infernal, a race of demonic fire elementals.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Warlic has a unique mana pool, which actually fills up as he casts more spells instead of expending it. He is (one of) the strongest magic users in the entire world, even capable of outfighting the Element Lords. But every spell he casts risks bringing about the End of the World as We Know It, especially as he starts reaching his mana pool's capacity.
    • In fact, he did destroy Somorah, an ENTIRE planet, in his Infernal form.
  • Playing with Fire: In The Duel, he has three attacks that do 100% Magic Fire damage.
    • Attack 1 - Runs up to you and turns his orb into fire as flames ignite you for 3 hits
    • Attack 2 - Runs up to you and summons a Fire Imp whom opens up a flame pit for 4 hits
    • Attack 3 - Runs up to you then floats and raises his staff at you and sends down fire bolts for 4 hits
  • Phlebotinum Overload: As Warlic casts spells, his mana pool actually increases instead of decreasing like most casters. If it increases too much, it risks bringing about the End of the World as We Know It or splitting Warlic into his two different natures.
  • Physical God: Warlic at his full potential is so powerful that he can take on the Elemental Avatars, the closest the game has to literal gods. However he rarely resorts to this and is usually an All-Powerful Bystander.
  • Purple Eyes: Warlic is indeed very special as the Half-Human Hybrid son of a human woman and an Infernal, a demon race with incredible power and a natural affinity for Fire, which he has inherited, and he somehow possess the unique trait of gaining mana instead of running out of it. He's also an abnormally strong magic user.
  • Quest Giver: Of the "Wrath of Xan" questchain.
  • Really 700 Years Old: His exact age is unknown, but he has been on Lore for several centuries at least, and looks like a Bishōnen.
    • Geopetal revealed he's 5,000 years old, much like his AQ counterpart.
  • The Rival: To Alexander until their duel, which ended with Jaania trapped in ice and Alex on fire. From then on, Warlic regretted everything and dropped the rivalry. Xan, still resentful, continues with the animosity.
  • Shock and Awe: When fought in Xan's Volcano Fortress and Mind Chamber, he has two magic attacks that deal Energy-elemental damage: "Ice Arrows" and "Energy Lightning".
  • Single Tear: He sheds one after Wargoth and The Professor merge back into him, and Jaania freezes them after telling him everything she thought about him. Most likely it's remorse.
  • Split-Personality Merge: As it turns out, the Professor and Wargoth are his human and Infernal halves, respectively. In order to defeat Wargoth, the heroes have to merge them back together into Warlic.
  • Summon Magic: Warlic is capable of summoning Fire Imps and Flamedances to torment Alex in The Master Apprentice, Playing with Fire and The Duel.
  • Wizard Duel: In Petty Squabbles, Warlic dares Alexander into prove that he can defeat him through a duel. It doesn't end well.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Delivers one to the Elemental Avatars, as he tries to protect Nythera from their wrath.

Believed to be the last Water Elf, Aquella resides in the Locker where she tries to keep humans and their litter away from the ocean floor. She is Arc Hero of the Water Orb Saga.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Her adult appearance in Book 3 DragonFable is much more attractive and stunning than how she looks in AdventureQuest.

When they broke during the fight with Greed, his physical hands were destroyed along with them. In Book 3 he has materialized his soul to replace his hands. His weapons now being a permanent part of him allow him to be very deadly in combat, however it means his "hands" can no longer physically touch anything and will pass right through.
  • Born Unlucky: Poor Tomix, sometimes it seems like he's Lore's personal stress ball. He released corrupted spirits by accident, fought with his brother, had to fight off and seal the corrupt spirits, lost both of his arms fighting Greed, didn't get the girl, and died to destroy Envy. He even says outright that he can't think of a good thing that ever happened to him other than the Hero.
  • Can't Live Without You: He actually died when he accidentally released the corrupted elemental spirits. Aspar brought him Back from the Dead, but Tomix's resurrection was linked to Aspar's own life.
  • Celibate Hero: Despite being a Chick Magnet and having Ship Teases with Riadne and Mazurek, he ultimately pushes them away, knowing he could never live a normal life. He instead encourages Riadne to get with Izaac.

    • Averted in Ravenloss Book 3 finale, after synchronizing with Pandora, he does "Good-elemental damage".
  • Dead Man Walking: In Book 3 he knows his time is coming to an end, as that is the only way to defeat Envy, and does not plan on returning from the trip into the void.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Has one of the most memorable deaths in the whole game.
  • Flash Step: Tomix, like most Soul Weavers, is able to move at incredible speeds and leave behind a purple streak, which is a technique called Soulblink.

However he is full of bitter self-loathing due to the revelation that Aspar is Envy and was using him the whole time. He even has an attack called "Sorrow" to signify his depressed emotional state.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Knowing that he will die anyways, he commits suicide by dropping off into the Void Core in order to take Aspar/Envy with him.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners:
    • With Aspar.
    Tomix: He is my closest friend, my SoulAlly. Without him, I would be lost.

  • Hunter of Monsters: Hunter of the corrupt elemental spirits he released.
  • Hurting Hero: In Book 3 he becomes grief-stricken and wrought with guilt after realizing Aspar was Envy, who had been using him all this time.
  • I Lied: Spoken word for word in Book 3, when Tomix tricks the Hero into taking a catapult with him.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Tomix got involved with an arachnomancer named Riadne, but broke up with her and encouraged her relationship with his best friend. He presumably did this due to the fact that he knew he was doomed to die.
  • Killed Off for Real: He dies falling into the Void Core.
  • Oh, Crap!: Related to his Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises moment mentioned below.
  • One-Man Army: At the time of his introduction he was the most powerful guest, and remained that way for a very long time. He can easily mow down hordes of Chaosweavers and other enemies in the cutscenes.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His soul manifestations are purple in color, which is also the color of his soul self. This is also due to the fact that he harnesses the "Evil-element" as part of his Dark Is Not Evil theme.
  • Quest Giver: Of the Ravenloss questchain, in both Book 1 and Book 3. Alternatively called the "Tomix Saga".
  • Sanity Slippage: During the Void Voyage in Book 3, Tomix is more and more obsessed with taking down Envy. And only the player character along with the other Void ship crew members manage to hold him from slipping into fits of madness every so often.
