Player Characters

Gregor Von Hexham

Played By: Sirus
Class: Soldier => Sentinel
The modest and bookish son of a Minor Menelean Noble. First met in the employ of Lady Prixima, he teams up with the mercenaries on their mission to retrieve the Dragonstone. Eventually he leaves along with Charlotte and Alexander on a quest to join the Imperial guard. In the interim, most of his family is hunted down, with only him and his brother Charles remaining.
  • Alpha Couple: With Charlotte. The first couple to reach S rank support (and only one in the main story).
    • Battle Couple: Both of them make good use of their support bonuses.
  • Arranged Marriage: With Alexandra. Thankfully neither of them are interested and have it called off immediately.
  • The Hero: After Sterling's vanishment and Adrien's death Gregor turned into the de facto leader of the group.
    • The Lancer: When Sterling was still around. Also literally.
  • High-Class Glass: Even though he is a front line fighter, Gregor comes from a noble family. Complete with Monocle Pop expression.
  • Name's the Same: No, not that Gregor.
  • Reluctant Ruler: Gregor wasn't very enthusiastic about having been named the leader of the group (at first).
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Gregor is both a soldier and a member of a noble family.

Charlotte Braxis

Played By: freeformschooler
Class: Archer => Sniper
A wandering woman and skilled archer who joins the group in hopes of scraping together money. She was tasked by Seyena's father to protect one of the few Dragonstones, Tiger's Eye, keeping it safe from those like Lady Prixima.
  • Alpha Couple: With Gregor.
    • Battle Couple: Between a Killer Bow and the extra critical rate from their Support, Gregor and Charlotte were nearly impossible to take down.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Got so infamous for her deadly critical hits that battle fluff for when she crits now tends to involve mushroom clouds, bright flashes, and piles of ash.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Does entertain the thought of injuring the other party of Gregor's alleged marriage pact.
  • Yandere: Kinda

Christopher Shields

Played By: SeriousConcentrate
Class: Spy => Assassin
A spy under Prixima Kesselring. He ended up becoming good friends with Gregor and became a sort of matchmaker among the squad, dispensing romantic advice and giving gentle nudges toward pairings.
  • Awful Truth Chris never lost his soul in the first place; he was just so traumatized by his childhood and the things he had done to survive that he retreated into the logic that only a soulless creature would have lived the kind of life he had.
  • Badass Cape: Chris wears one over his left shoulder.
  • Collector of the Strange: Chris collects stories and histories of odd or occult happenings.
  • Deadpan Snarker: So much so that the GM hit him with a permanent silence spell during the final boss battle.
  • Empty Eyes: Until the timeskip, Chris always has a blank stare (unless he's closing his eyes to deliver a sarcastic remark).
  • Freak Out: Chris leaves the party at one point to pursue something from his past. When he comes back, he's in the middle of suffering one of these.
  • Good Costume Switch: While working for Prixima, Chris wears black hooded robes. After switching allegiances to Tantallos, he wears blue and gold hooded robes.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Chris occasionally slips into Irish, particularly after killing named villains. Much like his attire, this is a reference to the series Assassin's Creed.
  • Hitman with a Heart: Chris, post Freak Out. Even pre-Freak Out he fits this trope, however, as he believes his kills should not die alone and stays with them until they pass.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Temporarily leaves the main cast. It is later revealed that during his absence he hunted down and destroyed the cult that ruined his and Ami's respective childhoods.
  • The Soulless Or so he incorrectly believes.
  • Sociopathic Hero: Early on. He gets better.
  • Stepford Smiler: Before the timeskip.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Marshmallows.

Valor Inara

Played By: Blade Master Model 42
Class: Mercenary => Hero
A blunt and straightforward mercenary born to a peasant girl and petty thief. Joins the party under an independent mercenary contract to Prixima.

Adrien

Played By: Taricus
Class: Fighter => Miniboss
A mercenary of Sarius' Wolves with a distrusting demeanor and dry wit.
  • Death by Pragmatism / Karmic Death: Turns out, attacking a harmless courier passing by your campsite can have far-reaching consequences.
  • Final Speech: He delivered one to Torres at the end of their duel, saying that he had consigned himself to a fate worse than death as a final act of trolling. Torres was too far away to hear.
  • The Friend Nobodylikes: Known for taking incredibly ruthless precautions in his line of work, from burning down a Lord's manor to gutting said Lord to ensure he didn't swallow the stone the team was required to retrieve. As a result, he isn't valued much by the rest of the cast. No-one bats an eye when he is tried by combat and loses
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How his trial by combat ends.
  • Killed Off for Real / Dropped a Bridge on Him: The first character to do so.
    • Came Back Wrong / Transhuman: Ultimately was resurrected by Prixima and used against the mercenaries as they assaulted her castle.
  • Pragmatic Hero: To a fault, as seen above.
  • Reality Ensues: No, killing a courier in friendly territory is not a good idea. Especially if it could plausibly be a lord's son.
  • Troll

Tantallos Forsaken

Played By: Praefectus Screptum
Class: Shaman => Druid
The eldest son of the Forsaken family, follows the Forsaken faith closely and with a generally cheerful disposition.

Alexander Jorinn

Played By: Powder Miner
Class: Knight => General
A knight born and raised in Kesselring lands and works loyally as a guard in their service. Lost his mentor in a battle against Berebian forces and holds a grudge against them.
  • Angst: Lots of it early on.
  • Babies Ever After: He and his wife Anja have a grand total of 13 children. Twelve daughters and one son.
  • Heroic BSoD: Alex was suffering one during Chapter 6, which is partially why he never attacked once during it.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: A very important part of Alex's armor, occasionally capable of turning aside siege magic.
  • Noble Bigot: Has a hatred for Berebians thanks to the incident which killed his teacher. Eventually gets over it thanks to his friendship with Salvatore.
  • No-Sell: Alex's defense oriented build, coupled with the promotion bonuses from the General Class, meant that most physical attacks bounced right off of him near the end.
  • Survivor's Guilt: His dedication to protecting his friends and allies stems from being the only survivor when his unit was killed during an excursion into Berebia.
  • Stone Wall: (In)Famously managed to use his Guard skill to protect all of his allies during Chapter 6, without attacking a single time, and survived with no casualties. This prompted the GM to nerf Guard to protect only one ally. Provides much needed choke-holding expertise in all other chapters, and while he has a modest attacking ability, he is ensured to be doubled by every target he meets.
  • Uptight Loves Wild: The duty-obsessed and very serious Alexander finds love with the trollish fantasy-gypsy Anja.

Ami Storm

Played By: scapheap
Class: Troubadour => Valkyrie
An eccentric young girl with a split personality, who works wonders with the healing arts. Her split personality, Mia, is a result of a cult experiment early on in her life that Chris was the blood sacrifice for.
  • Combat Medic
  • Combination Attack: Could theoretically have used one after becoming a Valkyrie, but it was never activated since the players forgot about it.
  • Hellish Horse: Her horse Tenumbra. All the other party members are absolutely terrified of him when she first finds him.
  • Hidden Depths: Mia manages to decode a ciphered message in a matter of seconds.
  • Split Personality: Has a demonic other personality named Mia.
  • Symbiotic Possession: Mia is actually the remnants of a dark spirit which was accidentally summoned into Ami when the ritual Chris was forced to take part in went wrong.

Seyena Ikane

Played By: Gamerboy4life
Class: Pegasus Knight => Valkyrie
A young woman who lived in a small village near the border, eventually leaving to pursue her own goals with her sister. Unfortunately, their journey would be interrupted by bandits, and her sister killed. Kidnapped afterwards, a band of mercenaries ends up rescuing her from the bandits, and ultimately inspires her to travel as one. This continued until she was offered a chance to learn under an experienced falcoknight at Kesselring.
  • Combat Medic: Moreso than Ami, as she started as a physical fighter. More often acts as a Flying Stretcher to bring wounded away from the front lines.
  • Combination Attack: See the entry for this trope in Ami.
  • Death by Origin Story: Her older sister Nala was killed by bandits who had captured the two of them, causing her to be unwilling to return home and joined the mercenaries that saved her instead.
  • Fragile Speedster: Tends to double just about everything, and deals a healthy amount of damage to boot. Unfortunately, she's near defenseless compared to the rest of the cast.
  • Secret Legacy: May or may not be the last descendant of the Latzenhommer family.

Derick

Played By: Furtuka
Class: Myrmidon => Sword Master
A young Mercian man with a simple outlook, eternally loyal to his mentor Sarius and his mercenaries.
  • Animal Motifs: Has come to be associated with wolves due to the image of one that is emblazoned on his headband. This itself was due to Sarius's mercenary group originally being called the Young Wolves.
  • Doom Magnet: Every single mentor figure Derick gains dies horribly at some point, the only exception being the old man who took him in after his parents died.
    • His parents were killed in a bandit attack when he was young.
    • His father figure Sarius is poisoned prior to the start of the game
    • and Joz is killed by Arvis soon after they part ways
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: The explosion from Prixima's death leaves some oddly shaped scars on his left cheek.
  • Master of All: He got all possible stats in a level up several times, much to the GM's chagrin.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Has a tendency to swear to avenge the deaths of people he cares for. This also perfectly describes the events of Epilogue B.
    • Vengeance Feels Empty: Subverted. Arvis tries to pull this on him as he dies, but Derick brushes it off since the man in question was pure evil and finds it worthwhile simply to have gotten rid of him.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the first couple chapters Derick did not do much damage and tended to spend more time knocked out than not, but come Chapter 3 he immediately One Hit Kills two enemies after equipping his Shamshir in a hint of things to come. Best summed up by this quote.
    freeformschooler: "When did Derick become an enormous badass?"

Olison Eul

Played By: CrimsonEon
Class: Cavalier => Paladin
A would-be knight exiled by his former country. Olison is first met in the employ of Lady Prixima Kesselring alongside Christopher Shields.
  • Action Duo: With Chris while under employment with Lady Prixima, the two having performed many stealth and reconnaissance missions together. They still remain on friendly terms as Fire-Forged Friends afterward.
  • The Atoner: Downplayed. While he does regret his time as an enforcer for his former Lord, he knew that, at the time, his actions were necessary.
  • Beard of Evil: He gets a very Khan-like beard in his epilogue, earning him the nickname 'MongOlison' among the playerbase. Subverted in that, while stoic and somewhat ruthless, he has the party's best interests at heart.
  • Fragile Speedster: Olison's role on the field mostly involves his high mobility, range, and doubling ability. Conversely, he only has middling defense, relying on his high speed to avoid most of the fire directed at him.
  • Javelin Thrower: Known for carrying around a Javelin or Throwing Spear at all times, and to deadly effect.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: No bonus for pointing out his armor color.
  • Mentor Archetype: While generally averse to the responsibility of mentorship, he does take a liking to training the other players. Regularly spars with Valor to teach him techniques against cavalry, and dispenses the occasional bit of leadership advice to Gregor and Charlotte.
  • Number Two: Generally is seen as the next step from Gregor in leadership of the group. Later he takes command of a portion of the party after the group is split in a later chapter.
  • The Stoic: Aside from his eyebrows, occasional gritting teeth and much rarer smirk, Olison isn't one to emote.

Salvatore Vaughan

Played By: Xanmyral
Class: Wyvern Rider => Wyvern Lord
  • The Atoner: Staunchly seeks to make amends for his time as a soldier under the Berebian nobility, having put down many rebellions by force with civilian lives taken as collateral damage.
  • Religious Bruiser: Prays before, during, and after battle, finding time to bury and give respects to the dead when possible.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair

Raquel Torriani

Played By: Culise
Class: Mage => Sage

Edwin Westbringer

Played By: Zako
Class: Sage

Riven

Played By: IronyOwl
Class: Shaman => Summoner
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Became one of the dragonmages in between FEF1 and FEF2, becoming known as Riven the Horde Queen.
  • The Minion Master: As a summoner, natch. Ultimately she wants to apply this on a larger scale.
  • Nice Hat
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: While technically everyone from FEF1's time period is dead by the time of FEF2, Riven specifically appears in corpse form as one of the dragonmages personally killed by Troy the Lionheart and stored in his tomb.

Class: Thief

Sterling

Played By: Darvi
Class: Mercenary

Taki Greenstone

Class: Mage Trainee

Bosses

Lady Prixima Kesselring

Ernest

Arinne

Eor

Captain Torres

Morko

Cilia and Dora

Baron Goering

  • The Strategist: Unlike a number of bosses, made it a point to lure the players out into an open area under cover of ballista.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As the players continue to pick off his men, along with the spies taking down his ballista, he begins to unhinge.

Robert and Aulia

  • Sibling Team
  • Thieves' Guild
  • What the Hell, Player?: The two of them are slaughtered by the players due to breaking into the castle in the middle of a siege. The main cast never learns of who they were, but the players themselves felt pretty sorry for them.

Larion Rosecross

Wodan

  • Honor Before Reason / Lawful Stupid: Spent his career as captain of a border guard post, and in his fervor destroys a bridge to stop Gregor and others from crossing into Berebia. After Gregor escapes, he is removed from his post and goes insane from his dishonor.

Bores

Joz

Arvis

Count Heinrich von Grummel

Aaron

  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Acts as one during the Mercenaries time working for Prixima, offering assistance and training the mercenaries with his wife before their first assignment. Until after the time skip, where he is little more than a husk.
  • Transhuman: At some point after the time skip, was killed and resurrected as one by Prixima.

???

Shimnir

  • Every Man Has His Price: Is bribed by Olison during the first wave of Chapter 11x with the last of the party's gold.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!!: And then promptly runs off with the gold without extending any aid to them in the fight as he promised.

Silverio

  • Something About a Rose : Everything he says comes out as muffled noises on account of the rose constantly clenched between his teeth.

Gleipnitz

June

Hegen

  • Anti-Magic: Carries Black Pearl, a Dragonstone converted with the power to absorb all magical effects.
  • Hulk Speak

Pullborg

Yhe, Vlade and Bladr

  • Big "NO!": Bladr, on witnessing Vlade's death.
  • Evil Old Folks
  • Precision F-Strike
  • Villain of Another Story: An odd case that applies more to their cult than individually, which is responsible for
    • Sarius's poisoning
    • The ritual that Chris believed removed his soul
    • and Mia being exorcised into Ami
    • Despite this, they have no involvement in the main plotline, and the majority of the cult was massacred offscreen by Chris.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: A meta example. Yhe's name, along with her servants Vlade and Bladr, are based off of a mispelling of 'the' and 'Blade', respectively. This is due to Powder Miner and Solymr's accidental typing errors in the group's chat.

Bernard Yung-Hedach

Gigin

  • Interface Screw: Demonstrates the ability to obfuscate the map and HP spoiler.
  • Troll: The epitome of trolling, to the point he is capable of affecting game elements themselves just to mess with the players.

NPC

Anja

Matilda

Mannan Tunhausen

Danya

  • Bodyguard Crush: Has an A rank support with Mannan, which was discovered when Charlotte walked in on them kissing

Player Characters

Leopoldo "Leo" Belmonte

Played By: SeriousConcentrate
Class: Priest => Saint
A selfless and upstanding priest from Ironmill who ended up joining up with the Mercenaries to better learn about the world.
  • Alpha Couple: With Sheila.The first couple to reach S rank support
  • Celibate Hero: It does not help that the initial group was Leo and six females. This eventually stops being a thing.
  • Happily Married: His and Sheila's dream counterparts, Leona and Sheldon, are. The real pair eventually does as well.
  • Hired Guns: One of the original six player characters, who were brought into the game under a mercenary contract.
  • Humble Hero
  • Important Hair Cut: Leo's hair is long and shaggy at first, leading some to call him 'moptop'. When he is elevated to the status of Saint by the Duke of Kretos, he gets a haircut and wardrobe change, on the basis that he can't be disreputable anymore. He actually acts a lot more disreputable now than he used to. See below.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Leo has been quite displeased with his employer, and with his friends and himself being shanghaied into the rebellion at sword point. Later, he was generally upset at himself for his inability to deal with his feelings for Sheila and seemingly constantly upsetting her. This all comes to a head when they finally rescue Sheila's dad and Renault tries to take him to task for being a priest, which only compounds the fact that Leo already didn't like him due to his kidnapping Sheila as a child and making her become a pirate. A VERY heated argument occurs, to the point that other characters flee the immediate area.
  • Separated at Birth: With Fezz
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Sheila. During one chapter they had to choose to save Matilda or let her be arrested. Leo tried to hold the line alone to let everyone else escape, stating that he wasn't going to break his promise to Matilda's father by letting her die and that he wasn't going to let Sheila die for his promise, because he loved her. The party instead stayed together to fend off the attacking forces, and Leo finally kissed her after the battle, breaking one of his vows. And now they're married and everything is ok.
  • White Mage

Fezz Scordato

Played By: Xanmyral
Class: Monk => Holy Guard
A cautious yet curious scholar with a deep reservoir knowledge in history and light magic. Adopted by a wandering scholar as a youth, Fezz ended up traveling on his own to search for his missing brother, eventually coming across the party.
  • Critical Status Buff: Fezz has the Wrath Skill, increasing his critical hit rate dramatically when he's low on health.
  • Hidden Depths: His shyness belies a very passionate and eccentric scientist. Go on, ask him about archaeology and history. He'll be brief. Honest.
  • Light 'em Up: Like all monks, wields light magic. Using it gives him severe migraines, though.
  • Separated at Birth: With Leo
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: When Wrath is active, Fezz is overcome with a surge of magical energy- coupled with an urge to discharge it against any hapless foes he finds nearby. This overrides his generally timid and passive personality.

Sheila Vega

Played By: BladeMasterModel42
Class: Pirate => Berserker
A strong-willed and boisterous woman born in the free port of Setine, she was taken in and raised by her pirate father. After a storm causes their ship to sink, Sheila survives off of mercenary contracts and other odd jobs while trying to find her missing father.
  • Alpha Couple: With Leo. The first couple to reach S rank support.
  • Disappeared Dad: Sheila's main personal quest is to find her missing father. She finds him, though it doesn't exactly go well at first.
  • Happily Married: Her and Leo's dream counterparts, Sheldon and Leona, are. The real pair eventually does as well.
  • Hired Guns: One of the original six player characters, who were brought into the game under a mercenary contract.
  • Modesty Shorts: Impossible to tell from her headshot, but Word of God says this is the case.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Crits, crits everywhere. In chapter 10, Sheila does so much damage in a single hit that the target's tile was altered as a result, if only cosmetically.
  • Pirate Girl: Both her class and actual former occupation, prior to the start of the game.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Leopoldo and her father Renault have an argument that makes her snap.

Grifen

Played By: Sirus
Class: Nomad => Medic
  • Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality: Occasionally speaks about fantastic animals in casual conversation that no one else seems to have heard of which her grandmother told her about. General consensus seems to hold that her grandma was just telling Grifen fairy tales, and forgot to set her straight later on.
  • Moe: And her player uses it to great effect. Such as convincing Alec to stay and fight against the Imperial Captain.
  • Never Gets Drunk: Surprisingly iron-livered for her size, out drinking Ciera and Sheila in a contest.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: Accidentally discovered to be another descendant of Troy Lionheart when Julius handed her the crown blade to prove to Fyra that it was authentic. Turns out she's more royal than Julius but because the Empire is somewhat sexist, she's not going to be Empress.
  • Sweet Home Alabama: Between her accent and her hometown, she evokes the image.

Sara

Played By: Taricus
Class: Wyvern Rider
A mysterious woman in an iron-cast mask who appears before the mercenaries of Setine and insists on participating in Matilda's contract.
  • Blood Knight: Downplayed. She tends to act relatively calm and collected during battle (albeit with a bit of swearing and taunting), but off the field she admits that she only feels alive in the midst of a fight.
  • Cool Mask: Wears an iron-cast mask at all times.
  • Hired Guns: One of the original six player characters, who were brought into the game under a mercenary contract.
  • The Strategist: One of her biggest interests, though her attempts at 'managing' the mercs draws their ire.

Efa Llewellyn

Played By: PowderMiner
Class: Archer => Sniper

Canna "Candy" Divola

Played By: freeformschooler
Class: Dancer
Born the third son of a Troian military general, who journeyed on a quest to find out how to become a fairy. One day he happened upon a old (possibly insane) man named Tinkle, who would teach him the ways of the fae. With his newfound fairy powers, he would journey out on a quest for the fountain of youth... before being captured by a band of mercenaries.
  • Dissonant Serenity: For someone claiming to be leading a pure existence, the killing and blood and gore that surrounds Candy doesn't seem to bother him very much.
  • Expy: Many of his personality traits were inspired by Tingle

Miguel Cervantes

Played By: birdy51
Class: Cavalier => Duke Knight
  • 10-Minute Retirement: At seventy one, living a quiet, boring life at his summer villa. Seventy two? Out in the world, vanquishing evil and delivering justice.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: His elderly mindset tends to have him spouting a lot of nonsensical things in battle.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While he does tend to get very deluded and rambling in his various speeches, even in battle, he is no slouch when it comes to combat.
  • Fiction 500: He's lived a very successful life, married twice, and once commanded a great deal of wealth.
  • Heroic Wannabe: After reading a few novels in the midst of his boredom with his fortune, he one day decided to don armor and travel the world, vanquishing evil where it resides.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: His inspiration, and what he aspires to be after dropping his idle mercantile lifestyle.
  • Large Ham: Miguel tends to break out in long, grandiose speeches.
  • Senile Badass: It's unclear whether his delusions are legitimate old age or Obfuscating Insanity, but one thing's clear; he is by no means lacking in the fight department.
  • Signature Laugh: Miguella, Miguel's dream counterpart, tends to add loud 'HOO's to sentences.

Julius Orto

Played By: Furtuka
Class: Scavenger => Bounty Hunter
A strange young man from Kretos who desperately wants to become a hero. What exactly he means by this is unclear, but he'll let nothing get in the way of achieving his goal...
  • The Atoner: Blames himself for being unable to save Sara, driving him further into his obsession with becoming a hero.
  • Badass Cape: More like Badass Cape Toss to reveal his fancy new outfit and as part of a dramatic speech
  • Black-and-White Insanity: It takes a long time for him to accept the idea that the Rebellion isn't pure good.
  • Break the Cutie: Was quite a dork prior to Sara's death... though in truth he could be said to have been broken from the very start.
  • Cool Mask: A ballroom mask, which covers up his scarred eye. He ditches it after Sara's death.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Pays no mind to getting bits of blood and brain splatter on him other than noting that it will be a hassle to clean.
  • Eye Scream: His scarred eye was inflicted by the guards of Kretosian noble he interfered with.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: His right eye is completely scarred over, one of the reasons he wears his Cool Mask.
  • A Good Way to Die: Finally achieves his dream of becoming a hero as his and Emperor Yurgen's duel ends in a Mutual Kill.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: Revealed by the ghost of Troy Lionheart to be a direct descendant of his male line.

Alec Slyvir

Played By: CrimsonEon
Class: Bard => Enchanter
A young man with a cheery yet insincere disposition and a penchant for stories and telltale. Joins the party after Matilda returns home and sets out to Kretos, and seems to carry a number of secrets with him...
  • Beneath the Mask: Normally acts very coy and dodgy, but catch him with his guard down and he lets slip a more quirky side.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards his younger brother and sister.
  • Con Man: His old pastime.
  • Dirty Coward: His attempt to run from the group's confrontation with Imperial Captain Eul paints him in this light to some characters.
  • Double Agent: Alec is a spy with contacts in both the Empire and the Rebellion, keeping an eye on operations from both ends.
  • The Face: While Leo holds the de facto leadership of the mercenaries, Alec usually plays the negotiator of the group.
  • Keet: Alec can be pretty excitable when his life isn't on the line. His dream counterpart, Alyssa, is pretty excitable anyway.
  • Mind-Control Music: As part of his Enchanter promotion. He loathes using it and prefers it as an absolute last resort.
  • Non-Action Guy: Despite his tall physique and imposing coat, he's rather meek and prefers talking his way out of trouble.
  • The Bard Who Doesn't Do Anything: For being a bard, Alec doesn't exactly know much in the way of songs or folklore. His real job is being a spy for the rebellion. In fact he only knows one song, his trademark refreshing song.
  • Sufficiently Analyzed Magic: How he handles his refresh music and Mind-Control Music. At least, that's how he prefers everyone else to see it.
  • Treasure Hunter: Of a sort. Much more interested in the mystery surrounding ancient treasures than the treasures themselves.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Possesses one of the lowest total stat counts of the Player Characters, and is fairly weak and unassuming in-story as well. His refresh ability, however, proves to be a tremendous asset to the party on multiple counts.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Heights?: Alec's Dream counterpart, Alyssa, isn't a fan of being miles in the air. Neither is the actual guy.

Ciera Zephyr

Played By: swordstar
Class: Pegasus Rider => Falcoknight
  • Butt-Monkey: Ciera leads a trying life. Given away by her parents, flubbed her first real battle, called a ditz by the person 'in charge' of the people she was assisting, forced to stab her love interest under the effects of berserk magic, had to kill a copy of Efa's sister, and then accidentally killed off the remaining boss who could have given the group information.
  • Did They or Didn't They?: Comes down one morning cheerful and with a bounce in her step after having last been seen in her love interest's room. They didn't
  • Genki Girl: Gets rather excited when she finally gets the chance to get away from her guard job. It doesn't last long, sadly.
    • Break the Cutie: It doesn't take long before her inexperience catches up with her, and she starts getting rather morose in mood. It takes Sheila, Grifen and Alec's efforts to snap her out of it, and even then she tends to have depressive moods at times.

Cyra Hayes

Played By: Tiruin
Class: Mercenary => Ranger
  • Sixth Ranger: Was the last member to join the full party, and has been confused by references to past events on occasion as a result.

Sonja Lutece

Played By: Reverie
Class: Mage

Maible Talruss

Played By: wolfchild
Class: Mage
  • Badass Bookworm: While most mages are this to a point, Maible tends to be found reading books that aren't necessarily magically related as well as her tomes. She also gifted tomes to other members of the party early on.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Hired Guns: One of the original six player characters, who were brought into the game under a mercenary contract.

Roderic Agrippa

Played By: Zako
Class: Fencer

Tacey Airgeat

Played By: Culise
Class: Cavalier

Sakura Lonia

Played By: scapheap
Class: Shaman
  • Hired Guns: One of the original six player characters, who were brought into the game under a mercenary contract.
  • Put on a Bus
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Connecting the dots between her epilogue and the lore for FEF6 implies that she might have been indirectly responsible for the collapse of the Troian economy a hundred years later.

The Rebellion

Irene/Matilda

Duke Mireos

Imperial Leaders and Commanders

Captain Reinhard Eul

  • Call-Back: Seems to be descended from Olison of the first game.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The players are given a choice to abandon the rebellion and join him as Mercenaries under his contract. Alas, the players did not choose to side with him.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: His fame among the empire is derived from being one. He does give the mercenaries a chance to abandon protecting Matilda, though Leo's idea of honor took another direction.

Commander Oggal

Commander Fyra

  • Determined Widow: Eul was to formally propose to her after his last mission. Ever since his death, she's become much more fiercely dedicated to her work.

Emperor Troy Lionheart

  • Friendly Ghost: When not angered of course. But otherwise he mostly just want to know how the empire has fared since his death.
  • Mage Killer: His tomb entrance is lined with the skeletons of the dragonmages he personally struck down.
  • Noble Bigot: Does not react well to hearing that the Empire has had women on the throne in the past.

Other NPCs

Renault Istair

Ram

Duke Sepin

Charles

Other

The Mime

Gustav Inara

  • Call-Back: Gustav's last name indicates that he's a descendant of Valor Inara from the first game.

Class: Pirate
  • The Alcoholic: Immediately following the return from their first (in-game) mission, Barry and Alicia proceed to the nearest house of ill-repute to get hammered.

Aiesha Vernat

Played By: BladeMasterModel42
Class: Thief
  • Only Sane Man: Aiesha is named Ethan's second in command for this reason (Cetus being disqualified not by oddity, but by virtue of being a healer, rather than any sort of fighter).
  • Reluctant Ruler: Aiesha has an aversion to responsibility, and was somewhat distressed when Ethan named her Second in Command.

Cetus Moss

Played By: swordstar

Alicia the Red

Played By: birdy51

  • Put on a Bus: Left the party at the end of Chapter 2.

Elanore Damiel

Played By: Ochita
Class: Shaman
  • Critical Status Buff: Elanore has the Wrath Skill, increasing her critical hit rate dramatically when she's low on health.
  • Hired Guns: Elanore is one of the original mercenaries hired by Ethan but also the most insistent on getting a pay raise.
  • Lady of Black Magic : In skill-set more than personality.
  • Rage Against the Heavens : Elanore feels Demura has wronged her due to her parents' behavior.

Fer Jasso

Played By: PowderMiner

Lucrezia Tholmes

Played By: GiglameshDespair

Beryn Tannios

Played By: SeriousConcentrate
Class: Wyvern Rider
  • A Man Is Always Eager: One of the first things Beryn does is talk to Baurus about all the females in the party in a generally complimentary manner.
  • American Accents: Beryn's inflections and choices of words are very southern United States in nature.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Beryn loves to fight, drink, and is generally an upbeat and outgoing individual.
  • Do You Want to Copulate?: Basically the first thing Beryn asked Alicia. He gets shot down immediately.
  • Heroic Wannabe: Beryn's goal in life is to become famous enough that his name will live forever, and he doesn't particular care what it takes for that to happen.
  • Man in a Kilt: He's wearing pants under it, but it still counts.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Beryn likes women, wine, and gambling. He's still a good-hearted fellow always willing to lend a hand and pull his own weight. However he begins a relationship with the Shrinking Violet Lucrezia.

Ethan Valle

Class: Pirate (Lord)
  • The Alleged Boss: Type two or four, kind of. Ethan doesn't give out very many orders, and those he does give are very much up for interpretation. This is almost certainly for gameplay reasons.
  • Badass in Charge: With his good growth and superior initial stats, Ethan tends to perform extremely well on the battlefield.
  • Blatant Lies: On two separate occasions after being asked if he was Ethan Valle, he answered with a flat 'no'.

Ethan Valle

Played By: Haspen

  • Blatant Lies: Rather than deflecting when asked if he was Ethan Valle, he simply replied with "No."
  • Mood-Swinger: Swinging from threatening people with violent death for defying his possession of the McGuffin then generously offering them financial compensation for taking it away.
  • Privateer: The Blackbones' captain and owner, as well as the character with the most experience in the area.

Claude Nassau

Played By: Caellath
Class: Mercenary
  • Bar Brawl: Accompanies Lavinia into hers despite being intended to chaperone her into not getting into them.
  • Competition Freak: Competitive since childhood, he constantly competes with Lavinia even by suddenly requesting arm-wrestling matches. His whole reason to learn swordfighting was because he was beaten by pirates. Which isn't the whole story.
  • Creature of Habit: He genuinely enjoys doing accounting and training day after day, with his competitive moments being so common they're a part of his routine.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Lavinia.
  • Grin of Audacity: Life-threatening combat is just another contest for him, and he's going to win.
  • Sibling Rivalry: What drove him to become so competitive.
  • Smug Smiler: He has a penchant for smiling smugly, especially after beating Lavinia in a contest.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Originally an accountant and commerce liaison before going through a swordfighting crash-course.

  • Yandere: towards Irios, who was her only friend during her upbringing with the Sect of Glass.
  • Sociopathic Hero: recommended murdering the king with the orb fragment as the most effective way to obtain it. The other party members... disagreed.

Noel Schoech

Played By: SeriousConcentrate
Class: Shaman
  • Bishōnen: Noel is too pretty for how sour his personality is.
  • Hollywood Atheist: The main reason Noel is seen as a jerk. He's pretty big into people thinking for themselves instead of following religion, even if it means 'waking people up' makes them hate him.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Noel is with the group not only for his facility with the darker magics of the world, but also to chronicle everything the group experiences for the scholars of their world - as well as his own studies.
  • Jerkass: Unpleasant and abrasive in conversation, particularly with members of the Sect of Glass.
  • Nobles Who Actually Do Something: Noel is the last son of the exiled and disgraced Schoech family; one of his major goals is to gain the power to return home and completely obliterate the noble family who wiped his out.
  • Straight Gay: Noel's a little vain, but otherwise you'd never know.

Gregory Zecklin

Class: Shaman

Siegfried Jubastacheit

Played By: KingMurdoc
Class: Knight
  • Arranged Marriage: Ran away from one. Unfortunately, his fiance just happened to be Shaelynn, who ends up in the same group as him.
  • The Atoner: Is trying to be this in regards to Shaelynn.
  • The Ditz: Played for Drama, as this leads him not to recognise how badly he screws up running away from Shaelynn until it's too late.
  • Ho Yay: Had quite a bit of this with Gregory. His player later confirmed that Siegfried was, in fact, gay.
  • Runaway Fiancé: Runs away from an Arranged Marriage after hearing of the reputation of his wife-to-be.

Shaelynn Peritz

Played By: BladeMasterModel42
Class: Nun

Jann

Played By: CrimsonEon
Class: Fighter
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Earns his dislike of both magic-induced life and the Reich when an attempt to flush out the last of the monsters living in the Blackmuds goes awry when Reich reinforcements fail to arrive.
  • Hunter of Monsters: Both a traditional game hunter, and a hunter of undead and other magical abominations.
  • Perpetual Frowner: To the point his player refuses to create a smiling sprite for him.
  • Rugged Scar: A large claw mark extending up from his chin to his cheek, caused by the aforementioned monster that slaughtered his kinsmen.
  • Science Is Bad: Played with. Jann displays plenty of hostility towards necromancy and mind-affecting magic which puts him at odds with the more scientific-minded Reichlanders, but tends to hold pragmatic reverence for healing and elemental magics.
  • Token Enemy Minority: Though he shares Troian descent with Alissa, Cecil, and to a degree Shaelynn, he is much more nationalistic than his peers. His involvement in the party's investigation is more out of desire to stop a bigger war than out of any care for the Reich.

Alissa Erite

Played By: Twinwolf
Class: Dancer
  • Childhood Friends: With Cecil, as her family and his have interacted for a while.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Landers Minder: She keeps an eye on Cecil's antics and keeps him from doing too many insane things.
  • Consummate Professional: Her Personal Skill emphasises her status as this; she may be in the middle of a battlefield, but she's a dancer dammit and she will perform to her best.
  • Dance Battler: As the Dancer. However, averted for now, as Alissa is still unarmed.
  • Heroic Bastard: Is the illegitimate child of her rich merchant father and a dancer he took a fancy to. However, she's a Nice Girl par excellence.
  • Magic Dance: Her dances can give extra turns to people.
  • Nice Girl: Certainly. Has to be to put up with Cecil, at least.
  • Oblivious to Love: Unaware of Cecil's feelings for her.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: With Cecil as the louder, more boisterous Red. However, Cecil is the one who wears blue.
  • Self-Made Man: Her family, the Erites. Their lack of noble status has led them to ally with the House of Ishim.

Cecil Ishim

Played By: ElfCollaborator
Class: Cavalier

Flora Brandt

Played By: GiglameshDespair
Class: Alchemist
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Played with. Both Iris and Flora see themselves as the Responsible to the other's Foolish, for different reasons.
  • Sibling Team: With Iris, though somewhat strained due to their respective outlooks.
  • The Spock: She handles most of her decisions with logic at the forefront. There are a couple exceptions mostly regarding her and Iris' deceased family.

Johannes van den Berg

Played By: GM_3826
Class: Tactician

  • Best Friend: Ever since he became close to the royal family, Johannes has been Sophia's best friend.
  • Blue Blood: Almost every member of the party is a Blue Blood of some sort, but Johannes is polite, and his outfit fits a noble.
  • Bounty Hunter: Was hired as a retainer of the royal family thanks to the reputation he acquired as a bounty hunter.
  • Glass Cannon: Thanks to being a Squishy Wizard.
  • Informed Flaw: His perfectionism and obssessive compulsive tendencies haven't really come up, as of Chapter 1.
  • The Perfectionist: Described as this... but he hasn't really gotten the opportunity to show this off.
  • The Strategist: The party's tactician.
  • Squishy Wizard: He doesn't have the physical strength necessary to be a frontline warrior, and so he became a strategist and magician. Ironically, thanks to promoting to Commander, he has a high Strength growth. (The other class that Tactician promotes to is the armored Baron, which fits him even less.)
  • Super OCD: Once again, he is supposed to be this.

Venza Ataris, Scholar

Played By: TricMagic
Class: Scholar

Rowan Bouwman, Pegasus Rider

Played By: SirAston
Class: Pegasus Rider

  • Blade on a Stick
  • Blue Blood: Of minor nobility. Notable in that his family is often involved with helping the farmers under their rule during a harvest, making them loved by the peasants but belittled by the other nobles.
  • Cool Horse: Comes from a family that specializes in breeding great pegasi. His own pegasus, Palewing, is an offspring of that breed, rejected by the family because of its grey-ish color but loved by him since childhood.
  • Fragile Speedster: Enough speed to double (or at least not get doubled against), but has even worse Defense than the mages of the group.
  • Honor Before Reason: Actively seeks out glory for personal gain, to the point where his already mediocre accuracy drops even further if his targets have attacked someone else other than Rowan himself or Princess Sophia recently.
  • The Lancer: While there is not directly a hero archetype amongst the others, Rowan nevertheless is a good contrast to Sophia's gentle nature, Priscilla's bluntness, Johannes' OCD and Venza's cheerful personality. Bonus points for using lances, too.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Is often grumpy and serious, but ultimatively he cares for the kingdom and the well-being of his companions.
  • Mage Killer: Thanks to being a Pegasus Rider.

Jill Frost, Soldier

Erica Aureliana di Palladino da Vancia

Played By: ElfCollaborator
Class: Huntress

  • The Comically Serious: Makes an attempt at making a joke with Rowan....which falls immensely flat owing to Erica's flat affect.
  • Consummate Professional: Erica keeps a calm front even in the worst situations, even in the face of her charge being killed and all of her colleagues bar Beowulf being slaughtered.
  • Defector from Decadence: Goes from being the adopted daughter of nobles and being relatively well-off on the payroll of various Church officials in Vancia to wandering around the world and finding work, hoping to find someone who is worthy of her protection, out of disgust for the Decadent Court of her homeland.
  • Heroic Bastard: The benevolent, pious illegtimate daughter of a Vancian Sinister Minister who left the Republics due to not wishing to serve under a Corrupt Church any longer.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Immediately apparent in Erica's narration; despite her brusque response to Sophia, it's clear Erica feels sorry for her, but cannot waste any time humouring her grief.
  • Religious Bruiser: A pious worshipper of the Inviolable Light, Erica is so devoted to her religion that she ends up leaving the Tibberine Republics out of disgust towards the corrupted upper church.

  • Not in This for Your Revolution: Her personal motive isn't restoring the monarchy, but any potential reward she can get her hands on, whether it be gold or glory, plus through a sense of respect to Cedric for besting her in a duel.
