This page lists characters that appear in the Heroica The RPG.
Arthur J. Regulus VII
- Appearances: Quest 17, 31, 38, 51, 53, 66
A brilliant mage with a fondness for speeches.
- Bash Brothers: With Dyric Rone. This has become a bit memetic.
- Character Filibuster: Just a little bit.
- Death Seeker: Becomes this after realizing that his sympathy for Wren and Chaos got five people killed and nearly unleashed a God of Evil bent on the destruction of all things upon the entire universe.
- Elemental Powers: Like any good mage.
- Magitek: Has a magical journal linked to another journal that he gave De'kra, which allows them to share ideas and knowledge from practically anywhere. Except Dastan...
- Morality Chain: De'kra
- My God, What Have I Done?: When he realizes what his actions in the final battle against Wren did to his fellow Heroes, including Hans and Gnash's deaths.
- Order Versus Chaos: Originally in complete favor of Chaos, before Quest 53.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: He really believed in Wren...
- "May your unity and your duty grant you most noble destiny."Appearances: Quest 4, 20, 29, 44, 51, 59
An amnesic rogue with more than a few references to Bionicle. Later became an assassin, then a sorcerer.
- The Blank: His entire body is a black mist, except for two lights which might not be eyes.
- Eldritch Abomination: Seems a little off sometimes.
- Flaming Sword: His favorite dagger Kapura is always ablaze.
- Hearing Voices: On occasion, though they don't seem evil.
- Identity Amnesia: Woke up on a beach only knowing a clicking language.
- Light 'em Up: After he became a Sorcerer.
- Knife Nut: His weapons of choice are daggers, which he tends to give names.
- Morality Chain: To Arthur, though this hasn't been tested yet.
- The Nicknamer: Tends to rename people after Bionicle Characters.
- Technical Pacifist: Does not enjoy violence much, and has tried to stop fighting before it can begin. Except with spiders.
- True Companions: Worships this concept, and believes that this is what love is.
- What Is This Thing You Call "Love"??: Originally thought love was a disease called "Rome Ant Icism." Nerwen set him straight later with an epic speech.
- Willfully Weak: Refuses to use Venom, Mead, Smelling Salts, Bombs, and pretty much every kind of buff.
- "I'm the Assassin of the Light, and you have failed Eubric."Appearances: Quest 9, 19, 34, 53, 65
An exiled rogue originally from Duplovia.
- Aborted Arc: Originally, Dyric's path was going to take a much darker tone. This was averted in Quest 34 in favour of his current path.
- Archer Archetype: After reaching Level 15, Dyric becomes the Assassin of the Light, and uses primarily a bow and arrow.
- Bash Brothers: With Arthur Regulus. This has become a bit memetic.
- Character Filibuster: Although not to the extent that Arthur does, Dyric does occasionally slip into this. Most notably when he gave a speech on death. In a language he only had a 'basic understanding of.'
- Consummate Professional: Through most of Quest 53, Dyric keeps his generally good-natured mood. As soon as Vonnetate steps onto the scene...
- Dark and Troubled Past: When King Somoril became King of Duplovia, he exiled Dyric for being a rogue, but not before torturing him to dissuade others from becoming criminals. What Somoril ignored was that the Rone Family was practicing rogue techniques as a way to catch other criminals.
- The Exile: From Duplovia.
- Fire-Forged Friends: Notably Dyric and Arthur, but really everyone on Quest 53.
- Gentleman Thief: Dyric isn't nearly as criminal as most rogues, due to his royal descent.
- The Idealist: Especially after becoming the Assassin of the Light, but still present before then.
- The Insomniac: After the harrowing final battle against Wren, Dyric began to display some insomniac tendencies.
- The McCoy: Has been known to slip into this, especially during discussions with and surrounding Arthur.
- Off with His Head!: When Dyric decapitated Vonnetate.
- Variable-Length Chain: It's never really stated how long his whip is.
- Whip It Good: Dyric's main weapon is a cool double-chain whip.
- Appearances: Quest 66
An elderly gnomish cleric, who retired from his job as a humble janitor to use his previously-gained clerical skills to help people and see the world beyond Eubric.
- Eccentric Mentor: Grimwald tries to use his 'wisdom' to take control of a situation, but doesn't seem to be taken seriously due to his... somewhat odd mannerisms.
- Older Sidekick: So far, Grimwald has only served a subordinate roll, despite his age and apparent life experience (to be fair, though, he was only a rookie hero at the time of Quest #66).
- Appearances: Quest 103, 122
A Munchkin Rogue, graduated to Black Knight.
- Munchkin: Literally and confusingly (and annoyingly). His race are called Munchkins, but it's a cultural name, apparently derived from "Children of Muncie" (not to be confused with the Illinois town). Moderately to the annoyment of some of the other players, Lind's actions also mimic the gamer term Munchkin, because of "Munchkin Knowledge". This is most prevalent in #122, where he knows (despite living in a fantasy world) exactly what flying saucers are. (It was hinted that there were reasons for this specific bit of knowledge, although they have yet to be revealed.)
- Celibate Hero: Quite possibly the only (male) hero in the game who's directly chosen to be this. (In a in-game situation, not as part of his back-story.)
- Harbinger of Impending Doom: Far off doom, but in #122, Lind talks about Olegia being potentially invaded someday by aliens in a Class 2 situation. However, he's the only one that really seemed to understand the dangers of an alien invasion.
- Absurd Cutting Power: His Ethereal Decks - two decks of cards that he uses as throwing weapons. Two decks of PAPER playing cards that can slice perfectly through the middle of a clay cup. Even the blacksmith isn't quite sure how sharpening them works.
- Appearances: Quest 13, 20, 26, 34, 39, 44, 52, 58, 63
A ruthless middle-aged fighter, with a past that made him who he is.
- Bald of Awesome: Although he may have just lost his hair due to aging.
- Badass Normal
- Fascinating Eyebrow
- "I am who I am. Love me or hate me, I just do what I do. My whole career back at the club was about being "naughty", if that's the term you wish to use. However, in show biz, that's what people want. People love me for loving them, and isn't that what everyone wants in a way?"Appearances: Quest 56, 62
An ex-night club singer, as well as the self proclaimed "Greatest Pickpocket in the World"
- Bewitched Amphibians: Well, to be fair, she did get better.
- Break the Cutie: While not innocent, Karie is very much a comedic character. Having been captured, brainwashed, abused, gotten lost trying to find a theatre on a cold winter's night, stuck during a riot, turned into a newt, lost her mask, and then tossed off a boat. All in the length of two quests.
- Con Man: Karie tends to use her good looks to get important info, usually through the use of lust and innocence. She is an actress after all!
- Domino Mask: One of Karie's defining features is her domino mask which she considers as part of her identity. When she finds it stepped on and battered after the fight with Rubix she's devastated, and goes through the rest of 62 feeling "naked".
- Flash Back / Greek Chorus: The flashbacks tend to include musical numbers led by the Emcee, which reflect on what's going on currently in Karie's life.
- Full-Body Disguise: The girl paints herself white and wears a mask. If that's not bad enough, she uses padding to make her chest look bigger.
- Hearing Voices: "This isn't like you, Karie. You'll find a way. I know you will."
- Iconic Item: Her mask counts as this.
- Loveable Rogue: She's stolen from people, insulted others, and acted rather harshly as well. Doesn't mean she won't give a starving dog a bone to chew on!
- Luke, I Am Your Father: Her long-lost sister was revealed to be Violetta the Cat Burglar, a.k.a. Kayla Raltyn. She has not yet learned of this, nor of Violetta's death.
- Phallic Weapon: Her weapon of choice is named "Sexy". It doesn't help that it's a rapier.
- Spy Catsuit: Karie acquires one before the start of Quest #70: The Syndicate. Unlike most catsuits, this one actually has cat ears. According to her it's "a little tight... and it smells a little..." It also belonged to her deceased sister, Kayla AKA Violetta the Catburglar.
- Appearances: Quest 32, 37, 47, 52, 57, 66
- Blood Knight: Syntax has shades of this.Syntax: Such elegance! Such grace! Such glorious brutality!
- Deadpan Snarker: In spades, especially when provoked. Syntax is even worse.
- Death Seeker: Despite helping Arthur with his suicidal issues, he has stated that the only reason he hasn't killed himself yet was because he wants to help other people around him.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: Sorrow may be merciless sometimes, but he legitimately cares for those around him.
- Meaningful Name: Sorrow's split personality, Syntax, is his method of dealing with all of the guilt and sorrow he has accumulated over the last 428 years. If he succeeds in quests, his guilt is eased and Syntax doesn't bother anyone too much. If he fails in a quest and his guilt gets the best of him,well...
- Talking Down the Suicidal: Does this for Arthur after said Hero's post-redemption breakdown.
- The Undead: Sorrow falls into the "Revenant Zombie" category, though he is far more intelligent then most undead. He was engineered to think and act like a normal being (which he does) and to look like a normal living human (which he does not.)
- Appearances: Quest 4, 14, 35
A barbarian with a few odd masks. He later became a shaman and a raider.
- Gender Bender: Has a mask that lets him change into a woman. Unfortunately he didn't cover his chest back then.
- Mask of Power: Has three masks that let him change his body and appearance.
- Our Elves Are Different: Can use a mask to turn into an elf.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Early on, like most Shamans.
- Appearances: Quest 7, 19, 30, 31, 38, 53
One of the big bads of Heroica.
- A God Am I: Her end goal.
- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Her final fate.
- Big Bad: Of the Wren Arc.
- Chaos Is Evil: Not according to her, but her actions speak differently.
- Fallen Hero: Formerly a member of Heroica, from before the massacre.
- Through the Eyes of Madness
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Not necessarily, but once she doesn't need you...
Scary, Jerry, and Thomas Jefferson
- Appearances: Quest 61
- Aerithand Bob: We have Scary, Jerry... and then Thomas Jefferson, who's named after one of the founding fathers of America.
- Dem Bones: Scary, Jerry, and Thomas Jefferson are skeletons.
- Greek Chorus: When the party of quest 53 were bashing Wren's skull in, what were the duo talking about? Battle order. And let's not forget the illusive Cheese element!
- Shout-Out: The trio run on this. All of their arguments can be traced back to in game elements and events happening during quest 61.
