"May your unity and your duty grant you most noble destiny."

"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.


Grimwald Gjinko

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).

Lind Whisperer

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.

Guts Holla

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.

Karie Aldeflask

"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.

Sorrow

Appearances: Quest 32, 37, 47, 52, 57, 66

An undead human with an alternate personality named Syntax, who is literally fueled by his guilt and sorrow.


Thormanil Nihai

Appearances: Quest 4, 14, 35

A barbarian with a few odd masks. He later became a shaman and a raider.

    Villains 

Lady Wren

Appearances: Quest 7, 19, 30, 31, 38, 53

One of the big bads of Heroica.


    NP Cs 

Scary, Jerry, and Thomas Jefferson

Appearances: Quest 61
Three skeletons who live in the Eubric Cemetery. They come out of their crypts after hours and talk about theater, politics, or whatever is relevant at the time.


  • 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.
