    Jarahk Ironhide 

Jarahk Ironhide

Voiced by: Justin Massey

Race: Warforged / Half-orc
Gender: Male
Class: Swordmage / Barbarian
——
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: His sword is said to be able to cut through almost anything, however, he's been using it for years without knowing it had the ability and has yet to really use it in combat since finding out.
  • Aggressive Negotiations: Ironhide is a strong supporter of this policy in their dealings with Carter. He was right.
  • Alchemy Is Magic: Ironhide really wanted to become this while they still worked for Overdale.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Has no memory of his life before being turned into a Warforged.
  • Barbarian Hero: Jahrak becomes this after switching bodies.
  • Body Snatcher: Played with. First, he's ripped from his original body in his backstory, and then inverted, as Jahrak is the one doing the snatching to avoid dying of Malchus' plague curse.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Whoever he used to be, Ironhide was born when mages sucked his soul out, stuck it in a metal body, and forced him to fight for their amusement.
  • Does Not Like Magic: Makes sense, considering Mages were the ones who ripped out his soul and turned him into a killing machine.
  • Establishing Character Moment: My kids? Oh, I ate them. What? They were toasters!
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: After refusing to fight against attacking vampires, brawling with other party members, saying he doesn't respect any of the other Group One members, and murdering Thoril, Ironhide has managed to turn much of the party against him. Except for Diana. She liked the murder.
  • Fantastic Racism: Hates Mages, who hate him right back. May have something to do with him being a walking reminder that they sucked the souls out of sentient beings, had them fight for their amusement, and then abandoned them and their creators to plague the rest of the continent while they fled into the sky.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Ironhide's definition of diplomacy is stabbing.
  • In the Back: Ironhide stabs Thoril this way, just before the man's execution.
  • Magic Knight: He is a Swordmage, after all. Green Flame Blade, anyone?
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Ironhide's modus operandi, and he's usually right.
  • Noodle Incident: Jarahk may or may not have eaten his children, who were toasters.
  • Playing with Fire: His favorite move is Green Flame Blade.
  • Sociopathic Hero: Ironhide doesn't understand your Hu Man emotions.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Subverted. One of Ironhide's dailies involves throwing his sword at an opponent. Granted, if he misses (which is often) it then tries to hit another enemy, but when used on a solo enemy, it's simply a miss. He also has trouble catching it sometimes.
  • What the Hell, Hero??: The reaction of most Group 1 members when Ironhide kills Thoril.

    Duncan Joybottom 

Duncan Joybottom

Voiced by: Dan Phelps

Race: Dwarf
Gender: Male
Class: Bard
——
  • Back from the Dead: Via Rod of Wonder.
  • The Bard: His character class.
  • Combat Medic: Especially as a backup healer.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He and his mother were attacked by dwarven bandits, forcing them to leave dwarven society.
  • First Law of Resurrection: Duncan just happens to be brought back by an item that could have resurrected ANY dead being on Theria, partly due to Dan's loss of interest in playing Rodswell.
  • Heel–Faith Turn: Went from being a con-artist Bard to a stick-in-the-mud Warpriest.
  • Meaningful Name: As the happiest, easy-going, and least evil member of Group One, Joybottom really does fit.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Unlike most Dwarves, Duncan is comparatively soft-spoken (which is really saying something) and works as a bard. He carries a lute, not an axe or a hammer, and his mere existence is seen as shaming to the Dwarven leaders. He's also good friends with a Minotaur.
  • Spoony Bard: Duncan has a tendency to roll poorly. He's gotten better since he was brought back from the dead.
  • Odd Friendship: With Yenward. Dwarves and Minotaurs don't really get along, but Duncan was never your normal dwarf.
  • Wandering Minstrel:

Thoril Songsteal

    Malchus Grimnas 

Malchus Grimnas

Voiced by: Rob Wiesehan

Race: Tiefling
Gender: Male
Class: Infernal Hexblade
Allied Group: Formerly Group One
——
  • Bad Powers, Good People / Bad Powers, Bad People: Malchus starts the campaign using his hell-sent powers to rescue damsels in distress, protect Overdale, hunt down criminals, and generally try to be a decent guy despite everyone fearing him for being Tiefling. By his last appearance, he's also abandoned his party and wiped out the entire Warforged race, including the ones that were fighting alongside him. As for powers, his sword sucks out people's souls and consumes them to give him some temporary hit points, so ....
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Malchus is particularly protective/dedicated to Brie because she's one of the few humans who didn't immediately assume he was some sort of evil, demonic monstrosity.
  • The Champion: Was one for Briahna, until he abandoned Group One.
  • The Charmer: The original Party Face for Group One.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Zigzagged. Malchus did make a deal with a devil for power, and can turn into a spiny, bat-winged hellspawn, but what he's done with that power ranges from saving damsels in distress to genocide.
  • Deal with the Devil: Made one for his Hexblade pact. Terms are unknown.
  • Disappeared Dad: No one knows what happened to Papa Grimnas.
  • The Dreaded: To Overwatch and Carter, Malchus Grimnas is the most hated terrorist of all time.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Malchus is a Malchu-holic.
  • The Easy Way or the Hard Way: Malchus invokes this, and accidentally kills the local Mayor through an anger-induced heart attack.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He might wipe out an entire race to win a war, but he would never sacrifice a child. Even to save his friend from vampirism.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: The next time Malchus appears after fleeing Group One, he's slunk into Brightport to visit and warn his mother.
  • Fantastic Racism: Tieflings in general suffer this from most of the other races.
  • Final Solution: Served as the instrument for the Duskwalker's genocide of the Warforged, activating the orb that released the Warforged Plague.
  • The Hedonist: Heavy-drinking, well-eating. Malchus adventures to fund his vices.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: The constant racism against Tieflings and the struggles he's gone through just to save people from the Overwatch have left him a little cynical. He'd have abandoned the continent if Briahna had left with him.
  • Magic Knight: Most warlocks hide in the back. Not Malchus Grimnas. That spotlight in front is HIS.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Malchus' vision of Winterhaven after he nearly dies could be put down to hallucinating from blood loss, his own subconscious fears and anxieties, or to residual effects of magic from the 17-year time skip.
  • Morality Chain: Briahna is this to Malchus, or at least she used to be.
  • One-Winged Angel: At higher levels, has the ability to turn his skin to iron, grow wings and spines, and basically become a Demon.
  • Playing with Fire: When he's not sucking out souls or turning into a demon, his powers lean towards fire.
  • Pride: Malchus thinks a lot of himself, and as an adventurer, he sees himself as simply being better than the more sedentary residents of Theria.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: Malchus goes from someone who tries to free enslaved orcs to wiping out an entire race of sentient beings and abandoning his surrogate daughter to escape the consequences of said genocide.
  • Rescue Romance: Subverted. Malchus rescued her twice as a child only to come back 17 years later to try and rescue her again, and it's clear she really does care about him. However, he leaves before they can get over their issues, and Briahna is later revealed to be gay.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Vallus despises Malchus, and Malchus seems to return the animosity.
  • What the Hell, Hero??:
    • Everyone and their dog pulls this on Malchus for the Treaty of Winterhaven, not that he ever accepts that the tragedies of the last decade or so were his fault.
    • Pulled again on Malchus in absentia when he commits genocide on the warforged.
  • Wife Husbandry: After Briahna seems really attached to Malchus while she was a kid, this was the general accusation lobbed at Malchus. Averted, as Briahna was always canon gay (the audience just didn't know) and that relationship would never have happened.

    Rodswell Joybottom 

Rodswell Joybottom

Voiced by: Dan Phelps

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Cleric
Allied Group: Formerly Group One
——
  • Combat Medic: Warpriest
  • Face–Heel Turn: Rodswell pulls one by leaving Group One to join the Overwatch.
  • Light Is Not Good: Rodswell, namely in that he's literally a cleric of Light, and he abandons and betrays the party due to not feeling respected enough. He then joins the Overwatch and gives them the location of the White Ravens.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: Rodswell starts with wanting to honor the memory of his dead son. He ends up betraying his son's friends, reviving two of their enemies, and giving information to the side of the war that his now-revived son is fighting against.

    Yenward Firestomp 

Yenward Firestomp

Voiced by: Tom Rose

Race: Minotaur
Gender: Male
Class: Fighter
——
  • An Axe to Grind: Yenward prefers axes, especially since he picked up Stormrender.
  • Anti-Hero: He might be a bit of a kleptomaniac and not respect the rules of honorable dueling, but Yenward is a big softie at heart and is horrified when Ironhide kills Thoril.
  • The Big Guy: Mostly Class Two. Yenward is the largest Group One member by far and as well as one of the more innocent and naive.
  • BFAxe: His main weapon, Stormrender, is a massive battleaxe that he still manages to use with one hand.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Sold into slavery and eventually ended up in the basement of a church, only for vampires to burn said church down.
  • Dumb Muscle: Zigzagged. Yenward's not the most intellectual member, along with being illiterate, but he's not precisely dumb. Just lacking in forethought or a formal education.
  • Made a Slave: At one point in his backstory.
  • Never Learned to Read: A running gag with Yenward is his illiteracy. Especially given his penchant for finding or stealing books.
  • Odd Friendship: With Duncan. Dwarves and Minotaurs don't really get along, but Duncan was never your normal dwarf.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Yenward gets swallowed by a purple worm, then regurgitated.
  • What the Hell, Hero??: The overwhelming sentiment when Ian pulls Briahna into the path of Yenward's charge, and he kills her accidentally.

    Draconis 

Drakonis

Voiced by: Jake White

Race: Dragonborn
Gender: Male
Class: Pyromancer Mage
——
  • Black Mage: Specializing in Fire spells, Draconis' arsenal consists exclusively of lobbing blast of magical power at his enemies.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: While he is very good at starting fires, his powers lose their punch if fighting against anyone with fire resistance, and he has some trouble actually putting out the fires he starts.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His whole family was murdered by the previous child-king of the Dragonborn, as punishment for hiding his completely manageable illness from the rest of the clan.
  • Glass Cannon: He's a Squishy Wizard after all.
  • Master of One Magic: Fire. He has one ice spell, but rarely uses it.
  • Playing with Fire: He's a Pyromancer, so his opening move tends to be to set everything on fire.
  • Squishy Wizard: Low hit points, and his main defensive strategy is to throw up Shield or run away.
  • Summon Magic: When he's not throwing fireballs, Draconis can summon a few magma beasts to back him up.
  • Thoril Banged Your Mom: Draconis uses the secret of Thoril and Talia's relationship to infuriate Nathaniel.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Drakonis' approach to magic tend to consist of throwing fireballs at everything. Granted, he gets better about using area-blocking during a couple of his fights.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Drakonis threw down a wall of fire after Group 1 was pickpocketed by a band of kids, and probably wouldn't have stopped there if he was by himself.

    Diana Asteroth 

Diana Asteroth

Voiced by: Kelsey White

Race: Tiefling
Gender: Female
Class: Enchanter Mage
——
  • Action Girl: Prefers ranged magic, but that doesn't stop her from murdering her enemies in their sleep.
  • Charm Person: Most of her powers involve magically compelling her enemies in some way.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Went into shakes at seeing Thermack's ghost, and uses her Sleep spell to avoid constant night terrors.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Immediately demonstrates her racism against humans, proceeds to mind-control the one human member of the party into stripping in public, and then takes offense when he grabs her out of anger.
  • Fantastic Racism: Against humans, which makes sense, considering that most humans consider her to be hellspawn.
  • Forced Sleep: One of her more useful spells, when it works.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Diana has a massive racist streak when it comes to humans, even laughing at Thoril's death.
  • Mind Manipulation: Her stock-in-trade as a charm-focused mage.
  • Playing with Puppets: Diana pulls this on Thoril in her introduction.

    Rikus 

Rikus

Voiced by: Brian "Cookie" Cook

Race: Mul
Gender: Male
Class: Runepriest
Former Group: Group Two
——
  • Carry a Big Stick: Primarily a mace/club wielder.
  • Combat Medic: Runepriest
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Former slave.
  • Fantastic Racism: Muls are the hybrid offspring of humans and dwarves, seen by most as only useful for grunt labor and fighting.
  • Gag Penis: His 'hammer' was a throwaway joke when a contact burst into their room uninvited, and became a running gag after Jason agreed to give him a bonus to intimidate while naked.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Rikus is a Mul, half human and half dwarf.
  • Killed Off for Real: Mauled by a werewolf pack before being devoured.
  • Lawful Good: Expressly stated on more than one occasion, but tends to lean more Good than Lawful due to the rest of his party. That doesn't stop him from getting them sold into slavery due to his Lawful Stupid decision to trust the city guard in a town known as the City of Thieves.
  • Made a Slave: By Graddick the gnome, along with the rest of Group Two.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He has two hammers. One he hits with, and one he 'drops' when he needs to intimidate someone.
  • Running Gag: His all-natural 'hammer' is huge, enough give him a bonus to intimidate while naked.
  • Slave Race: Muls are predominantly used as labor slaves or grunt soldiers due to their size and strength. Rikus is particularly opposed to this idea.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The theme of Group 2. He gets free of his original enslavement, only to be arrested and re-enslaved in Brightport, made to fight as a gladiator, escapes during a zombie outbreak, eventually puts Brightport behind him, only to get mauled by werewolves.

Former Group: Group Two
——
  • Action Girl: She's a stealthy assassin with a penchant for stabbing and bomb-throwing.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Really shines after being chased up a tree by werewolves.
  • Glass Cannon: As an Assassin, and then a Rogue, she could dish out a lot of damage, but taking it was not her thing.
  • Killed Off for Real: Mauled by a werewolf and an ogre with his body dropped down a crevasse.
  • Made a Slave: By Graddick the gnome, along with the rest of Group Two.
  • Our Elves Are Different: Of a pale-skinned Drow variety.
  • The Sneaky Guy: Trixy is the group's stealth expert, befitting her role as an Assassin, and later a Rogue.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The theme of Group 2. She gets arrested and enslaved in Brightport, made to fight as a gladiator, escapes during a zombie outbreak, eventually puts Brightport behind her, only to watch two of her oldest companions mauled by werewolves, takes revenge on the werewolves, and then gets beaten to a pulp by a troll and Haven after his lycanthropy sets in.

    Galford / Greta Gardriz 

Galford / Greta Gardriz

Voiced by: Erik Spindler

Race: Gnome
Gender: Male / Female
Class: Fey Pact Binder Warlock
Allied Group: Formerly Group Two
——
  • Black Mage: Pure damage-dealer when it comes to magic.
  • Deal with the Fey: Made some sort of deal for his power and is intent on not letting the price catch up with him.
  • First Law of Gender-Bending: It would take a lot of Rod of Wonder uses to reverse his genderswap (1/100 chance), and it's still not guaranteed.
  • Gender Bender: Gets turned into a woman by the Rod of Wonder.
  • Made a Slave: By Graddick the gnome, along with the rest of Group Two.
  • Partial Transformation: Gets his arms turned into tentacles by the Rod of Wonder.
  • Put on a Bus: Heads to Uman'Yiro in an attempt to get rid of the tentacles caused by the Rod of Wonder.
  • Second Law of Gender Bending: Galford prefers being Greta, but not for the traditional reasons. As a female gnome, it will make it that much harder for whatever he's running from to find him.
  • Third Law of Gender Bending: Galford suddenly becomes more empathic, sensitive, and understanding when transformed into Greta, and adopts a conventionally female style of dress.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Introduces himself as chaotic-evil ... ish.

    Baranith Dragonsoul 

Baranith Dragonsoul

Voiced by: Alana Spindler

Race: Elf
Gender: Female
Class: Cleric
Former Group: Group Two
——
  • Action Girl: She used to beat heads in with her stick.
  • Amnesiac Hero: There is a massive blank space in her history from before she was captured as a slave.
  • Battle Couple: Vallus and Baranith play this one straight as a hulking brutish bodyguard for a fragile cleric healer. At least, until she rejects him.
  • Combat Medic: Ranged Archer/Cleric
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Probably. She knows she was a slave, but doesn't remember any of her life before she lost her memories (and since she's an elf, that's quite a long time).
  • Killed Off for Real: Mauled by a werewolf pack before being devoured.
  • Made a Slave: By Graddick the gnome, along with the rest of Group Two.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: Baranith-Vallus. He was around his forties while she was pushing 200. Granted, she only had her memories from the last few years. Interestingly, the trope wasn't invoked when she rejected him, they simply had different goals that needed to be accomplished, and they realistically couldn't be together.
  • Our Elves Are Different: Likely from a rare Elven clan with ties to the Dragonborn.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Somewhere around the 200 mark.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The theme of Group 2. She escapes being a slave, only to be arrested and re-enslaved in Brightport, made to fight as a gladiator, escapes during a zombie outbreak, eventually puts Brightport behind her, only to get mauled by werewolves.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: After she used an extremely rare scroll of resurrection on a former enemy NPC that she had a crush on.
  • White Magician Girl: Both the primary healer and the most emotionally-sensitive and openly caring member of the party.

Voiced by: James Wilkinson

Race: Eladrin
Gender: Male
Class: Psion
——
  • Our Elves Are Different: Daegon is a High-elf, or Eladrin, and the last member of his race since every other Eladrin vanished overnight.
  • The Last of His Kind: Daegon is the only Eladrin remaining in Theria.
  • Psychic Powers: Psion specifically, Daegon's power is his ability to psychically punch his fist through your chest.
  • Really 700 Years Old: At least a couple hundred, but looks fairly young, due to being an elf.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The theme of Group 2. Last of his race, horribly tortured, watches half his party mauled by werewolves, only to come back with reinforcements to kill the wolves and then get beaten by a troll and said reinforcements after Haven's lycanthropy set in.
  • Uniqueness Value: Most people haven't seen an Eladrin in over a hundred years, so most of those who recognize what he is are suitably intrigued.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Subverted. Originally, Daegon swore to not return home until he discovered what happened to his people. However, after losing several companions, he takes the new Group Two to the Eladrin city to try and find some clues.

  • Archer Archetype: Her main weapon is her bow, currently.

  • Forest Ranger: Ranged fighter, uses a bow, with close ties to nature.

  • Screw Destiny: Her general attitude after the other Goliaths kick her for not having a fate written in her markings.
  • Secular Hero: Khoury openly dismisses the possible existence of Gods in Theria
  • Trauma Conga Line: The theme of Group 2. Joins Group Two only to watch half the party mauled by werewolves, come back with reinforcements to kill the wolves, and then get beaten by a troll and said reinforcements after Haven's lycanthropy set in.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Her lack of a determinable fate resulted in her exile from her home.

Voiced by: Xavier Trudeau-Deschênes

Race: Revenant

  • Genre Blind: He gives a long speech about how Lochfort can bind together and use their neighborly spirit to join together against the werewolf threat. Apparently, no one told him this is a Crapsack World

  • The Paladin: As a Cavalier, he was technically a mounted paladin, although his trusty steed died early on.
  • Not Quite Dead: It's kinda his shtick.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The theme of Group 2. He's killed during the Onak-al Plague, loses his beloved horse, joins Group Two to take revenge on the werewolves, and then get beaten to a pulp by a troll and his own ally after Haven's lycanthropy set in.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: When her brothers weren't around to protect her, she 'found out how dark the world really was.'
  • Disappeared Dad: No one knows what happened to Papa Grimnas.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She betrays Overwatch after being ordered to kill women and children.
  • Put on a Bus: After her original voice actress left the show. Aralove wandered her way to Fairbay during the battle against the Overwatch.

Group Three

    Una Anhelada 

Una Anhelada

Voiced by: Isabel Chadwick

Race: Half-elf
Gender: Female
Class: Paladin
——
  • Action Girl: Una was considered to be the embodiment of Kord's strength while alive.
  • Anger Born of Worry: Una is notably furious after Brie charges off to help Fie after just being revived.
  • Ascended Fangirl: Una was originally inspired by Group One during the Tournament of Champions.
  • Back from the Dead: Brie forces a cleric of Kord to resurrect Una after she's killed by Straad.
  • Badass: To the point that she's named the Fist of Kord, an example for all paladins of the God of Courage.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Brie. They finally resolve it.
  • Berserk Button: About half of Una's personality is a collection of berserk buttons, although actions she deems as cowardice (through some mental gymnastics) are a great way to trigger this.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Thinking is for people who can't fly or hit things with holy hammers of thunder.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Specifically of her future girlfriend. It's an ... unconventional relationship.
  • Combat Medic: Backup healer, since she is a Paladin.
  • Crisis of Faith: After dying, she breaks down, not having experienced the afterlife preached by the followers of Kord.
    "There was nothing. No heaven. No Kord."
  • Defector from Decadence: She leaves the Overwatch to join the White Ravens.
  • Determinator: If Una decides to do something, it will be done.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Tendency for not-entirely provoked acts of violence? Check. Slightly odd scale of right and wrong? Check. Absolute hatred for Malchus? Check. She shares a lot of similarities with Ironhide, with some religious zealotry added in. They actually get along fairly decently, until Ironhide leaves to go after Carter.
  • Drop the Hammer: Una's weapon of choice.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Half-elf, which at least in her case leaves her looking more or less human.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She betrays Overwatch in order to save Briahna (and not lead 500 kids to their deaths.)
  • Jumped at the Call: Specifically to defend Overwatch, but really any call involving beating up guys she feels are cowardly.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": To weapons of Kord.
  • Morality Chain: Briahna is this to Una before the paladin's heel-face turn.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Una pulls this a couple of times as well, namely with Jeb and Darmok.
  • Not Afraid to Die: Death to a Paladin of Kord means arriving in Kord's Valhalla-esque heaven, or at least that's what Kord's followers believe. So, Una really feels she ha something to look forward to.
  • One Head Taller: She and Brie really fit the 'one tall, one short' romantic type.
  • The Paladin: She's a paladin. 'nuf said.
  • Principles Zealot: For courage. As a paladin of Kord, she finds cowardice to be absolutely repellent.
  • Red Baron: Becomes the "Fist of Kord."
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: Her first kiss with Brie.
  • Team Dad: Gender-flipped. A lot of her conversations involve her providing some form of advice or critiquing the other party members' actions if she feels they are cowardly. She also works tirelessly to protect the people serving with her and leaves Overwatch partly due to her refusal to sent 500 recruits to certain death.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Una's response to most dilemmas, using an actual hammer.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Inverted. Una served more or less as her group's moral compass.

    Jadzia Grace 

Jadzia Grace

  • And Now You Must Marry Me: Darmok pulls this on Jadzia in her backstory.
  • Badass Bookworm: Her pack is filled with books, and her hat holds her victims' souls.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Granted, she can suck out your soul and flay you alive with her power, but she learned them to escape her abusive husband.
  • Battle Couple: With Vallus, her big, red, sharp-toothed, puppyish boyfriend.
  • Black Mage: Pure damage-dealer when it comes to magic.
  • Blood Magic: She steals souls and flays people with magical power. To be fair, she's trying to use it to save her soul.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: She and Vallus have a hard time communicating their feelings, partly due to the difficulties of their past relationships.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Sold to her abusive husband by her mother.
  • Deal with the Devil: Made to escape Darmok, and is currently looking for a way out of the deal.
  • Defector from Decadence: She leaves the Overwatch to join the White Ravens.
  • Fantastic Racism: Had this as a result of suffering constantly at the hands of Tieflings. She's getting over it since meeting Vallus.
  • Glass Cannon: Jadzia's job is to not get hit.
  • Hates Being Touched: Kinda comes with the whole 'abusive husband who burned over half my body' thing. She's getting better about it.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She betrays Overwatch due to the addition of a Tiefling to her squad (and to not lead 500 kids to their deaths.)
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: She's really tiny, and dating big ol' Vallus.
  • Lady of Black Magic: Warlock? Check. Blood magic? Check. Hat that seals the souls of her kills for later use? Check.
  • Merlin and Nimue: Subverted in Jadzia's backstory. She expects the teaching from Darmok, but he decides to skip to the nasty bits. Jadzia had to become a warlock on her own specifically to escape from Darmok.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her mother sold her to an abusive husband, and her father was framed for treason by Marcus.
  • Physical Scars, Psychological Scars: A large portion of her body is burned thanks to Darmok, and she's left riddled with major intimacy issues.

Fie Lar'Va

Voiced by: Cat Charlie

Race: Changling
Gender: Male

  • An Arm and a Leg: After his arm is removed to avoid a blood magic infection.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Taken in as a foundling by a farming family, only for them to be murdered by crazed elves. Had a short life of crime before being forced into the Overwatch army.

  • Fantastic Racism: Hates Elves and their sub-types, even being overjoyed at getting to bomb a Drow nursery.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He betrays Overwatch to side with Una (and not lead 500 kids to their deaths.)
  • Momma's Boy: Even as a foundling and a theif, he really loved his momma ... and was devastated when she was executed as punishment for him leaving the Overwatch.
  • Shapeshifting: He's a Changeling, and capable of shifting form when he wants.
  • The Sneaky Guy: Fie is the group's stealth expert, befitting his role as the Thief.

    Marcus Sana 

Marcus Sana

Voiced by: Scott Mc Evoy

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Class: Cleric
Former Group: Group Three
——
  • The Chessmaster: Marcus Sana lives and breathes this trope. Or he did, until he gave up and let G3 execute him.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Marcus first turns on Una, Fie, and Briahna when he decides that any escape plan with Brie will harm the people of the city. Then he turns on Una again, and blames her for the losses in the Evergreen and for Gavin's death. Then he betrays Commander Grace, framing him for treason, and then does the same for Captain Tenbolt, gaining himself the Commander position. Finally, he tries to turn on Estherholt, only for Una, Fie, and Jadzia to interrupt the message.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His family was murdered by criminals after Group One took away the stabilizing influence of the Black Hand crime group.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: To the point that he gets abandoned by his party members not once, but twice, and then abandoned by his soldier right before his death.
  • Heroic BSoD: Marcus suffers this from hitting a bloodied enemy due to his Pacifist nature.
  • Killed Off for Real: Shanked with a twist to the knife for good measure.
  • The Medic: Extremely good as a healer, but can't hit bloodied foes without freaking out.
  • Meet Cute: Jadzia and Vallus meet. She stabs him, he chokes her, and they fall in adorable awkward love.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: Marcus wants to protect the people of the Overwatch. By the end, every ally has left him, he's responsible for at least one of the deaths of his old party's parents, and he tries to have the city he's in burned to the ground out of spite.
  • Properly Paranoid: He starts to expect people to turn on him, which actually has a tendency to happen.
  • Technical Pacifist: Took the Pacifist feat, but can still beat people up, to a point.
  • White Mage: Almost all his powers revolve around healing or the occasional buff.

Notable NPCs

    Liara Bryos 

Liara Bryos

Race: Human
Gender: Female
Allied Group: Currently Group One, Formerly Group Three
——
  • Action Girl: She's basically one-eyed, badass-er Buffy.
  • The Dragon: Liara prefers this role to leading herself, first for Carter, then Trias, then Brie.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Liara got this courtesy of a vampire she hunted long ago.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Liara serves as this for Briahna, mostly because she doesn't want the actual position as the White Raven's leader.
  • Rebel Leader: Takes over for the White Ravens after Briahna's powers vanish.
  • The Spymaster: The rebellion she leads uses mostly scouting and espionage tactics.

    Vallus Grimnas 

Vallus Grimnas

Race: Tiefling
Gender: Male
Allied Group: Currently Group Three, Formerly Group Two
——
  • Back from the Dead: Via a Scroll of Resurrection
  • Battle Couple: Vallus and Baranith play this one straight as a hulking brutish bodyguard for a fragile cleric healer. At least, until she rejects him, and then Vallus and Jadzia continue the tradition.
  • Bearer of Bad News: Oddly for a hired killer, Vallus does this a lot, especially with the Ebelmere family.
  • The Big Guy: Vallus is extremely tall and muscular, making for even more contrast with his brother Malchus.
  • The Champion: First for Baranith, then for Jadzia. Vallus would do almost anything for the people he really cares about, including nearly being dragged to hell by hooked chains and getting mauled by gnolls.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Baranith breaks his heart, reasoning that their different goals and personal obligations mean that they just can't be together.
  • The Dreaded: Vallus is known as the Butcher of Brightport, and well-known enough to terrify anyone who recognizes him.
  • Fantastic Racism: Does NOT like werewolves. Then again, given how Haven turned out, it's pretty understandable.
  • Failed a Spot Check: This happens a lot. His perception score is fairly low.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: In any relationship he's ended up in, due to his size.
  • Made a Slave: Already in Onak-al when Group Two arrived.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: Baranith-Vallus. He was around his forties while she was pushing 200. Granted, she only had her memories from the last few years. Interestingly, the trope wasn't invoked when she rejected him, they simply had different goals that needed to be accomplished, and they realistically couldn't be together.
  • Meet Cute: Jadzia and Vallus meet. She stabs him, he chokes her, and they fall in adorable awkward love.
  • Mix-and-Match Weapon: His main weapon of choice is a bear trap on a chain, called the Kettenhund
  • Monster Knight: He's a giant Tiefling with a bear trap on a chain, who can teleport with fire.
  • No Social Skills: He can fight with the best of them, but don't expect him to play nice at a dinner party.
  • Not Good with People: Vallus refers to most of the party by their classes or descriptions, with 'Tree' for Caluna and 'Theif' for Fie. The only person whose name he bothers to use is Jadzia.
  • Professional Killer: His day job before ending up in Onak-al
  • Sibling Rivalry: Vallus despises Malchus, and only resisted killing him in the hopes of seeing Malchus reveal his true colors to the party.

    Briahna Ebelmere 

Briahna Ebelmere

Race: Human
Gender: Female
Allied Group: Currently Group Three, Formerly Group One
——
  • Action Girl: Capable of punching a hole through your chest.
  • Back from the Dead: Via resurrection from Una.
  • Badass Gay: Likes girls and punches dragons in the face.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her official art features stomach-bearing armor.
  • Berserk Button: Do not hurt anyone Brie cares about. Gods help you if you hurt Una.
  • Black Eyes Take Warning: If Brie's eyes go black, you should probably run.
  • Blessed with Suck: Briahna's extremely rare and powerful psionic abilities came with the cost of constant night terrors, requiring she be knocked out to sleep through the night at least, they used to.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Happens to Briahna when she overuses her psionic powers in a fight.
  • Broken Pedestal: Group One in general, but specifically Malchus.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: And how. Nearly sacrificed by a witch in a blood magic ritual as a child, she gets kidnapped by Ian on the orders of said witch, tortured by horrific shadow creatures, abandoned by the only people who ever really protected her, forced out of her home by the Overwatch, watches her former kidnapper murder her father, is portrayed as insane by Ian along with being burned and threatened to keep her silent, and then joins a rebellion only to have the charismatic leader literally bleed out on top of her.
  • Damsel in Distress: Her first two appearances involve her being protected/saved by Group One. (Even if they did think about using her as a sacrifice at one point). Then she gets revived by Una, who fought Death itself to save her. For someone who can punch holes in dragons, she gets in this position a lot.
  • The Dragonslayer: The only known character to face down two different dragons and win.
  • Gay Option: For Una, or technically any future female PCs who try to romance her.
  • Glass Cannon: Endurance is not her thing, but she will Decimate you if she hits.
  • Hero-Worshipper: To Malchus as a child, then resented him for leaving, then slipped back into old patterns when he returned.
  • Morality Chain: Briahna is this to Malchus, or at least she used to be. She also became a bit of one for Una before the paladin's heel-face turn.
  • Psychic Powers: Psion specifically, Briahna's power is her ability to psychically punch her fist through your chest.
  • Rebel Leader: After Trias' death, she unhappily takes over the role.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: Her first kiss with Una.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She's a lot less sweet when she reappears after the 17 year jump.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Straad tries to eat Briahna. It doesn't go well for him.
  • Trauma Conga Line: After everything in her horrific backstory, she gets captured, tortured, beaten into unconsciousness, her throat slit in order to escape, betrayed by her childhood hero, murdered by the man who killed her father and burned her face, and then finally revived without her powers only to gain them just before watching the one good thing in her life (Una) die in front of her.
  • Unstoppable Rage: She blasts off Straad's lower jaw when he kills Una.

    King Zannon Carter 

King Zannon Carter

Race: Human
Gender: Male
——
  • Disney Villain Death: Yenward kills King Carter by knocking him out a window to his eventual death.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: A mixed-race group killed a bunch of gangsters and kept their vampire from attacking me? Clearly this means I have to round up all non-humans and start turning them into mind-controlled automatons.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Especially as King Carter. The power and prominence of his position seemed to be getting to him.
  • Final Solution: Attempts two. The original was to use the captured souls of non-humans to power his robot warforged army. When Malchus destroyed the entire Warforged race, Carter ordered experiments into mind-controlling living creatures directly.
  • From a Certain Point of View: Carter may have had a point about Group One, and they did eventually return to attack him.
  • Hate Sink: Genocidal rampages have a tendency to do that.
  • Killed Off for Real: Thrown out the window of his tower, only go splat hundreds of feet below.
  • Light Is Not Good: Dresses all in white, and tries to wipe all non-humans from the face of the map. Or mind-wipe them into obedient little slaves. Whichever works.
  • Non-Action Guy: He's a priest, not a fighter, and his one combat appearance consisted of him in the healer/buffer/debuffer role.
  • You're Insane!: He did order mass genocide and experiments designed to bind the will of sentient beings to his own, so getting this response from everyone outside the Overwatch isn't unexpected.

    Darmok 

Darmok

Race: Tiefling
Gender: Male
——

  • Bad Powers, Bad People: Darmok is a blood mage, and has a house filled with corpses. Go figure.
  • Blood Magic: His specialty. His creepy, creepy specialty.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Horribly disfigured Jadzia, trying to make her unappealing to anyone other than himself.
  • Domestic Abuse: Done with the creepiest voice possible.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's currently trapped in Jadzia's Helm of Seven Deaths.
  • Hate Sink: And he absolutely deserves it.
  • Obviously Evil: Of the creepiest kind possible.
  • Serial Killer: The body count for his experiments is disturbing enough, but he also had the bodies of women who looked like his wife buried around the house once he realized they weren't actually Jadzia.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Massively powerful bloodmage and has a backyard hedge maze atop of a massive number of his victim's graves. Also hunts down women who look like his estranged wife.
  • You're Insane!: Pretty much everyone's response to Darmok.
  • You Monster!: Again, pretty much everyone's response to Darmok.
  • 0% Approval Rating: Darmok is universally hated, despised, and feared by all who knew him.

    Ian Severus 

Ian Severus

Race: Human
Gender: Male
——

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Ian hasn't spent 17 years lying around. He's excellent with Kord's Gale, even after losing one hand.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Shows up for episode 3, then get put on a bus until after the 17-year time skip.
  • Cool Sword: Kord's Gale, Which he stole after murdering a fencing master.
  • Death Glare: Does a lot of these to Group One. Also Una.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He appears, acts like an asshole and is immediately hated by Group One.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's currently trapped in Jadzia's soul hat.
  • Foreshadowing: He was REALLY glad Duncan was the only one to crawl up from the Winterhaven crypt.
  • Jerkass: Even his wife admits he's difficult to deal with.
  • Killed Off for Real: Double-teamed by Group One and Three, with his soul sealed inside Jadzia's hat.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He loses it when Talia accepts that he did murder her father, and decides he needs to be tried for his crimes.
  • You Monster!: Group One and Three's response to learning that he burned Briahna's face to scare her off. Even his wife joins in when they convince her that he may have actually killed her father, Lord Padraig.
