Nariko

Voiced by: Anna Torv

  • Lady of War: Her movements are deadly and graceful.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Despite her lithe frame, she hits pretty hard and is extremely agile. In addition, two of her sword stances include "Power" and "Speed" for emphasis heavy and light attacks.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She is extremely attractive, even Bohan agrees. Also doubles as Third-Person Seductress, since she is the playable character.

  • One-Woman Army: Nariko vs. horde? Almost a fair fight.
  • Tranquil Fury: She does lose her cool a few times, but Nariko's much more dangerous when she's quiet.

Kai

Voiced by: Lydia Baksh

  • Facial Markings: Kai's face has white paint which serve to denote her tribal origins.
  • Fragile Speedster: Justified since she is a ranged fighter and can't take many hits.
  • Friendly Sniper: Though she is a bit loony, she is a very friendly and nice crossbow user.
  • Happily Adopted: Nariko found her alone in the wilderness and took her in. However, the rest of the clan doesn't treat Kai any better than they do Nariko.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Using aftertouch, she can curve her shots back and forth with a crossbow.
  • Wild Child: Literally, since Kai was found in the wilderness by Nariko and adopted.

Master Shen

Voiced by Ewan Stewart

King Bohan

Voiced by Andy Serkis

  • An Axe to Grind: He carries a battle ax with him all the time, but he never uses it.
  • Big Bad: His mad campaign for conquest puts Nariko's tribe in danger and drives the whole plot. Though it turns out, he is merely The Heavy for the Raven King.
  • Classic Villain: Represented by four sins: Pride (considers himself the mightiest monarch in the world), Envy (Of being passed over for Master Shen in their youth), Lust (is a dirty old bastard who hits on Nariko and keeps Whiptail as his concubine) and Ambition (seeks to rule over all around him).
  • Evil Old Folks: His advanced age is pretty noticeable, from his white facial hair and wrinkles. And he is an Evil Overlord with aspirations to conquer the local area.
  • Evil Overlord: A cruel tyrant who seeks to bring control and order to the realm, by slaughtering all those who resist him.
  • Jerkass: As if being a power-mad monarch wasn't bad enough, this guy is a massive prick.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Justifiably, since his old age prevents him from being in the frontline and he wouldn't last a second in a straight up fight against Nariko. It takes him being possessed by an evil spirit to become a proper physical danger.

Flying Fox

Voiced by Steven Berkoff

  • Boom, Headshot!: How Kai ends up killing him, with a crossbow bolt to the forehead.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Played for horror. He's definitely out of his mind, but he still works as Bohan's primary enforcer.
  • Combat Aestheticist: Obsessed with the "style" of combat.
  • Doppelgänger Spin: His combat relies on superhuman speed to the point of appearing to make doppelgängers.
  • Flash Step: A major part of his skill set.
  • Flight: With his wings, he is capable of flight. It's unclear if they are naturally a part of him, though.

Whiptail

Voiced by Race Davies

  • Animal Motifs: Snakes. She has a long snake like tail and she appears to have scales in her body.
  • Butterface: She has a pretty curvy bod and her outfit is even more Stripperiffic than Nariko's. Her face is ruined by her razor-sharp teeth.

Roach

Voiced by Richard Ridings

  • Anti-Villain: He isn't that bad compared to other villains and all he wants is to impress his father.
  • Animal Motifs: Cockroachs. His armor resembles a cockroach carapace and there is his name of course.
  • Dumb Muscle: Roach is a massive fiend, but not very smart.
