Hellion's Entourage

The judge characters who oversee the tournament and ensure it runs smoothly, all of which answer to the Trickster directly.

     The Trickster Hellion 

The Trickster Hellion

"Your Gracious host"

The godly master of manipulation and trickery, the Trickster Hellion is the overseer and organizer of the tournament. He claims to have started the tournament entirely for his amusement, but time will tell if there truly is a method to his madness.

     Cyrene 

Cyrene

"The Recruiter and Watcher"

The bizarre recruiter of the tournament, in charge of seeking out potential contestants and bringing them to the Higherworld. They seem to have their own agenda for the completion of the tournament...


     Revan 

Revan

"The Anomalous Ranger"

Revan is the self-appointed lifeguard of the tournament, helping others get to the safety of the sanctuaries when night falls. She is also the only being in the known universe to have control over her shadow.


     Aria 

Aria

"The Sanctuary Keeper"

Aria is the resident Sanctuary Keeper. A kind person at heart, she'll take care of anyone who wanders into the sanctuaries during the Higherworld's dangerous night.


     Tau 

Tau

"The Guardian of the Vault"

Tau is the resident brawler and guardian of the vault where Johl's Tincture is located. He took up the mantle of guardian in order to search the Higherworld for something important to his people.


  • Dishing Out Dirt: They can manipulate the ground around them, as well as levitate and fire stones that have been carved with a special rune.
  • Extremity Extremist: Uses kicks almost exclusively in melee combat.
  • Threshold Guardian: Tau's job is to prevent anyone from gaining access to Johl's Tincture before a winner has been chosen.
  • The Quiet One: But they might start speaking if you get to know them.

Residents of the Higherworld

These creatures are natives of the Higherworld. Though they don't have anything to do with the tournament proper, interaction between them and the contestants is almost inevitable

     The Shadows of Man 

The Shadows of Man

"The Twisted Reflection"

Strange, eldritch monstrosities that come out at night to hunt down anyone who is caught outside. Each Shadow of Man is a malformed, dark-colored replica of a person who happens to be outside during the Higherworld's night cycle. They seem to have no purpose other than to seek out and kill their counterpart.


     Denizens 

The Denizens of the Higherworld

"The Onlookers"

The wildly diverse groups of people that live on the islands of the Higherworld. They are more or less neutral towards the contestants, though their actual reactions may vary.


  • Action Survivor: Any creature that has survived the dangers of the Higherworld all their life is automatically this.
  • Celestial Body: The denizens of the constellation island, the Constels, are animal-like creatures with constellations glowing on their bodies.
  • Man-Eating Plant: The plants on the Twilight Island are active and hostile during the daytime.
  • Non-Player Character: Essentially the role they play.

     Johl 

Johl, ascendant beyond space and time

"The Unseen"

The mysterious creator of Johl's Tincture, the final prize at the end of the tournament. Having supposedly ascended beyond space and time, he has no direct hand in the tournament, but he may have left clues to his true nature around the Higherworld, and the denizens might have something to say about him.


  • The Ghost: None of the official tournament materials depict him, and he supposedly ascended beyond time and space.

     Hybrid 

Hybrid

"The Bladed General"

Hybrid is the commanding general of the country called Wysteria. Being a military leader, he is a member of BLADE, a group consisting of only the highest in the ranks of the army. He doesn't stand away from the frontline, however, and in fact is built to be a living war machine due to his mostly cybernetic body.


  • A Dog Named "Dog" A mechanical hybrid of many experimental weaponry... who then proceeded to call himself "Hybrid".
  • Cyborg: He's a ball of metal and dragon parts, with only his head, internal organs and around half of his lower torso being in tact. The rest is metal, the most obvious being his arms, legs and tail.
  • Frontline General His cybernetics were in fact designed to make his offensive capabilities the focus. He practically lives on the frontline.
  • Lightning Bruiser He's incredibly quick despite his size.
  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range There doesn't seem to be many cases, but Hybrid mentions that he can 'crack' his legs suited for a four-legged stance.
  • Anatomy Arsenal Particularly his talons, his high hearing capacity and the tail (which is technically purposed as both a blade and a flail).
  • Badass Cape A navy one, bearing the BLADE insignia.
  • Dual Wielding He's ambidextrous and is even mentioned to be able to even grab things with his feet.
  • Super Strength While Hybrid isn't the strongest in terms of physical capacity, his tail could do a fair amount of damage.
  • Lizard Folk Hybrid was formerly draconian, a subspecies of dragon.
  • Chaotic Neutral Even if he comes across as someone harsh or threatening, he doesn't stray off into villain territory.
  • Mysterious Past Hybrid doesn't remember much of his early memories.
  • Cryptic Conversation Every time he decides to demand any answers from NOVUS.
  • Aloof Ally In groups more than two, he tends to set a distance and prefer not to interact. Same thing if he's been angered.
  • Darkand Troubled Past Despite not knowing much about his species, past or anything prior to his military career, he's been informed of being around when the Draconian-Lupus War.
  • Beneath the Mask is a lost soul seeking his past.
  • Being Watched by N 0 Vu 5.

     Miles 

Miles

"The Dreamer"

Miles is a feline wild child who comes from a society of superpowered dream versions of cats that hang around in the Buffer Zone between realities.


  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Not as much in Miles' case, but his world has a bunch of weird colored cats. His are just toned down to where he could also be a black cat (until you see the weird colored blood that is)
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Definitely has ADHD
  • The Berzerker: Not Miles, but his Shadow tends to blindly attack at not even form coherent sentences in it's rage, almost like it's not using a happy facade to hide the fact that it's terrified, and angry, at the situation at hand
  • Civilized Animal
  • Close-Range Combatant: His fighting style is lots of kicks and punches, and throwing things, and doing his best to tackle things despite his small size
  • Dream Walker: All of the universes he enters with his Dreamer form are dream-based pocket ones.
    • This also covers any and all fictional universes since technically those are Dream Worlds too
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's got Super Strength, but he's only semi-invincible, which means he's still able to get hurt physically
  • Super Reflexes: He has cat-level hearing and smelling
  • The Pollyanna: Despite being trapped in another universe for 2 years or 2 Buffer Zone Hours, and dying horrifically in said universe (which just made him Respawn back into the Buffer Zone rather than actually killing him), Miles seems to be totally fine with the situation and keeps his optimistic and energetic mood going.
