Jiruga IshalA Tribal from Oakwood, whose unnatural magical prowess got him exiled. He rose to great prominence in the Varian Academy, infamous for his almost unrivaled abilities. He went on to usurp the throne of Mapleheim from the tyrannical Traenwa family, becoming the nation's first human King, a controversial move indeed. Behind the scenes, he is in search of people who fit a list of social requirements, with seemingly good intentions to unite the Eastern Reaches, though he seems fully ready to commit the West to certain oblivion through a shady alliance with the Cult.
- Abdicate the Throne
- A God I Am Not: Claims as much when explaining to the Basilisk why using immortality to better the world is pointless.
- Always Second Best: To Elise during his time in the Varian Academy.
- Ambiguously Evil: Can sometimes appear this way, at his worst.
- Anti-Hero: He clearly has good intentions, but his methods are questionable.
- Awesome, but Impractical: His most powerful spell, Six Generals, is this. It's an incredibly powerful spell that, unfortunately for him, takes six full seconds of concentration to cast during which he can't cast any other spells to defend himself. Needless to say, this restriction has caused Jiruga to get stomped numerous times by foes otherwise much weaker than him who managed to take him by surprise.
- Beauty = Goodness: A strong believer in this.
- Big Good: He seems to consider himself this, and he may or may not be right.
- Birds of a Feather: with Maria, as they're both skilled magi who are very passionate about their individual ideals.
- Black Magic: What many people consider his magic to be.
- Byronic Hero
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He'll often switch sides on a whim and tends to be quite ruthless when he does so.
- Combat Tentacles: How he uses his vine spell.
- The Chessmaster: He has a hand in several different affairs at once.
- Deal with the Devil: Makes several arrangements with the Leviathan and the Siren.
- Did You Just Scam Cthulhu??: Effectively cons the Manticore and his fellow "players" out of their rewards during their escape the Labyrinth.
- Enemy Mine: with the Leviathan, in a scarily effective alliance.
- Good Colors, Evil Colors: Going so far as to purposefully expend mana purely to satisfy his sense of aesthetics, Jiruga manipulates the color of his psychic spells from purple (the natural color of such spells) to gold in order to evoke this. He often even goes a step further and lies about his golden spells actually originating from a "divine" spell school.
- Green Thumb: Capable of using Nature magic, though Friend to All Living Things most certainly does not apply.
- Happily Married: to Maria.
- Hell Seeker: Gets passage into the Crimson Void for his own mysterious purposes.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Admits that he's not the best at choosing his allies.
- Immortality Seeker: Hinted at.
- Instant Expert: His single greatest talent is in how fast he's able to learn magic, to the point that he can learn a spell that's supposed to take weeks to learn in only a few hours.
- In-Series Nickname: He was known as 'The Thief' in the Varian Academy, due to the [incorrect] widespread belief that he was capable of Power Copying. Those handful of people aware of this still used the nickname, though, as it turned out that his actual power fits the title just as well, if on a darker level.
- Light Is Not Good
- Master of Illusion
- Mysterious Backer: How he is viewed to some of his followers, especially Emile and Hope. He also technically plays this role in relation to the Cult.
- Not So Different: To Cierra. Both want to make the world a better place, but have very different methods of doing so.
- The Leviathan is actively trying to draw a similar comparison between himself and Jiruga.
- Older Than They Look: Justified. Looks 21 but is actually 35 years old.
- Parental Favoritism: His favorite child is Jirou.
- Power Copying: Played with. He's incapable of actually doing this but creative use of his psychic powers can give others the illusion that this is an ability of his.
- Rags to Royalty: He was born into an impoverished tribe and eventually married into a royal family of Varia. At one point, he was even king of Mapleheim.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
- The Philosopher: Very much so, with his own guiding philosophy and standards.
- Psychic Powers
- Rule of Empathy: A crucial part of how he views the world.
- Secret Test of Character: The Leviathan sends Jiruga into the Crimson Void to see if Jiruga will compromise his supposed morals.
- The Social Darwinist: Somewhat.
- Summon Magic: His Six Generals ability.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes
- Squishy Wizard: He's actually in good shape and is even capable of physically overpowering normal people. The problem is that his physical strength still pales in comparison to any actual warrior, so this trope still applies.
- The Exile: Exiled from his tribe in Oakwood at the age of 12.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He pursues what he believes to be best for himself, his family, and the Eastern Reaches. It's best captured in this quote:"The magician had an unpredictability about him that the Leviathan did not for but one reason: while the Leviathan knew himself to be the villain, Jiruga thought himself to be the hero."
- Wild Card: It's incredibly unclear what his motivations, goals, and loyalty are at any given time.
HopeA young Varian Mage who was exiled along with her brother and captured by the Cult. Fortunately, the Leviathan sold her to Jiruga as part of their arrangement, and now acts as his mouthpiece in search of people who show inner purity, with Emile as her guardian.
- Ascended Extra: Was never intended to become a main character past her first appearance, but quickly rose to prominence.
- Break the Cutie: See Dropped a Bridge on Him below.
- Cultural Rebel: Notably lacks the usual pretentious attitudes of Varian Magi.
- Cursed with Awesome: Her earrings. She can never remove them, they drain almost all her mana away (thus rendering her almost completely unable to use magic), and even eat into her stamina. In exchange, however, she can transform into almost any living creature she wants.
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: Not her, but her brother was "killed" by the Cult.
- The Exile: She and her brother were kicked out of Varia for smuggling spellbooks.
- Good Is Not Dumb: She may come across as this at first but Hope has shown herself to actually be quite intelligent on occassion.
- The Heart: Strives to be this in whatever group she's in.
- Inelegant Blubbering: How she started out.
- Magic Pants: Applies to her shapeshifting and how this is possible is actually explained (in short, her clothes are shapeshifted as well).
- Meaningful Rename: Jiruga told her to rename herself, and she chose 'Hope', in an optimistic bid for a better life.
- Nice Girl
- Morality Pet: To Emile.
- Mouth of Sauron: Is technically this, to Jiruga, until she's freed from his service.
- Platonic Life-Partners: With Emile.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Through her earrings, she can shapeshift into almost any living creatures she desires. Unfortunately for her, Required Secondary Powers doesn't automatically apply, so transforming into something like an elephant would only make her larger, not stronger.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Delivers a few of these to Emile, and later Jiruga too.
Emile FortinbrasAn ancient and world-weary Vampire who was once a leading hunter in the Ablazed, until he was bitten and escaped the Order. He was captured by the Cult and sold, along with Hope, to Jiruga, acting as Hope's guardian.
- Arch-Enemy: To Laertes.
- Badass Longcoat
- Boom, Headshot!: How he kills Lord Nergal.
- Decoy Protagonist: His first appearance suggested that he would be a Darker and Edgier leading servant to Jiruga, but Hope quickly overtook him as the leading protagonist in their adventures.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: It's really the only reason he bothered to serve Jiruga.
- Distressed Dude: Regularly.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette
- Genre Savvy: Justified, since he's incredibly old and can easily recognize the types of situations he finds himself in, however he'll often cross into Wrong Genre Savvy just as easily.
- The Gunslinger
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Knight Templar: Was this as an Ablazed, and still has shades of it.
- Kick the Dog: Arguably, turning a man whose father had been a feral vampire for fifteen years into a vampire himself as punishment for his crimes could be seen as this.
- Lady and Knight: The Knight to Hope's Lady.
- Like Father, Like Son: His father was an Ablazed as well.
- Mad Scientist: He used to experiment on captured vampires during his time with the Ablazed.
- Ninja Pirate Robot Zombie: Vampire-Hunting Vampire Cowboy Scientist
- Not in This for Your Revolution: Initially gives off this vibe, going along with Jiruga's plan just to earn his freedom, but it seems that he actually does care about the cause after all, as long as he feels useful.
- Platonic Life-Partners: With Hope.
- Older Than They Look: His vampiric immortality, described below.
- Our Vampires Are Different
- Really 700 Years Old: It isn't known just how old he really is, but nothing phases him anymore.
- Revenge: Wants revenge on the man who turned him.
- Revolvers Are Just Better
- Shout-Out: Another Shakespeare reference (sensing a theme yet?), this time to Hamlet.
- The Stoic
- Vampire Hunter: Formerly, when he belonged to the Ablazed.
- Walk the Earth: What he's been doing since conversion.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Hinted at this, considering his condition a Fate Worse than Death.

- The Big Guy

- Jerkass Has a Point: Reminds the Gentleman that he abandoned his mission just as Faeron abandoned his own.
- Lack of Empathy: Seemingly, suffering no visible remorse over sending his sister to what could have been her death.
- Shadow Archetype: To the Gentleman, in that he's what the Gentleman would be like without a set of moral rules and regard for family.
- The Stoic
- Killed Offscreen
- Nice Guy
- Sacrificial Lion: He doesn't return from his mission to illustrate how dangerous the civil war is becoming.
- Senseless Sacrifice: He didn't really sacrifice himself, but he died fighting for a cause he believed in. Cut to a few days later and that cause is all but extinct.
- We Hardly Knew Ye
- Wild Man: Implied to be in touch with the forests of Mapleheim.
- Brutal Honesty: He's very open towards Lillian about her flaws as a combatant.
- The Mentor: Serves as this to Lillian in the Gentleman's absence.
- Sole Survivor: Allegedly survived the attack on Atropos, along with Cierra, the Gentleman, and Lillian.
- Oh, Crap!: Is initially confident that Faeron will keep them safe from the Battalion. Moments later, he realizes how wrong he is.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Initially.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He's the first member of Atropos that the Gentleman has a casual conversation with, but is little more than a background character from thereon out. Come the siege on Atropos, and he turns out to be a major player with more than a few tricks up his sleeve.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Severs his leg and stabs himself in order to transport the Gentleman and Lillian to the Crimson Void, dying not long after.
- Nice Guy: Or so he seems.
- Thanatos Gambit: Pulls a very impressive, and very powerful one.
The Leviathan/Lucien Hale
Lucien Hale started out as a Knight of Kermulvia, whose lust for a young woman drove him to murder his rival. He was rescued from imprisonment by the Cult of Tertius, who valued him for his inherent wickedness. He was converted into a Blood Mage, a Hemomancer, bound to the Archdaemon known as the Leviathan, one of the three Daemons worshiped by the Cult. The Leviathan is the Archdaemon Patron of Chaos, Corruption, and Cunning, his realm being known as the Frozen Vale. Working together, the Leviathan and his Cult seek to corrupt all of Asagorak, starting with Altekrai.
- The Ageless: Like any other Blood Mage.
- All Love Is Unrequited: See Start of Darkness below.
- Ambition Is Evil
- Aristocrats Are Evil: Technically speaking, since Lucien was part of Kermulvias aristocracy before he went downhill.
- Badass Boast: Makes a few of these from time to time.
- Batman Gambit: His abandoning the Frozen Vale to be summoned ensured that the millions of undead Souls he left behind would be freed and wreak havoc on the Crimson Void, keeping his rivals there preoccupied while he set about corrupting Asagorak.
- He pulls another one later on during the Bloodsport Festival, forcing Andre to fight Rhea - knowing he'll refuse, and having them arrested for refusing to entertain the crowd.
- Big Bad: He appears to be edging closer to becoming this for the whole Roleplay.
- Blood Magic
- Blue Blood: Formerly.
- Cain and Abel: The Cain to the Behemoth's Abel.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Happily admits to being an irredeemable madman (being a daemon and all), but he believes that all of humanity is just as bad.
- Chaos Is Evil: There's a reason the Cult of Tertius is referred to as "The Chaos Cult" by some.
- Cold-Blooded Torture: Starts to partake in this with Andre and Rhea before they cut an uneasy deal with him.
- Combat Sadomasochist: As he points out during his battle with Marcurio, practically bleeding to death "Is the point."
- The Corrupter
- The Cynic: He thinks the world is a terrible place full of evil people - but it's subverted in that he wants to rule over them.
- Dark Messiah: Lucien is this, whereas the Leviathan is more of a God of Evil (below)
- Deadpan Snarker: occasionally.
- Demonic Possession
- Drunk on the Dark Side
- The Emperor: His title after taking Altekrai is "Imperator," which comes close enough to count given his villain status.
- Enemy Mine: with Jiruga.
- Equal-Opportunity Evil: One of his only "redeeming" qualities is that he doesn't take race or anything into account. Everyone is evil in someway, and thus equal in his eyes.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Cannot understand why everyone doesn't see things his way, even going so far to think that anyone who doesn't have the same views as him simply hasn't come around yet.
- Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: From his torturing of Andre and Rhea:"I think after this is all over...I might wear your daughter's face instead. New year, new me right? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!"
- Evil Plan: His plan is to turn Altekrai into a den of sin before [eventually] corrupting the world.
- Evil Sorcerer
- Deal with the Devil: Naturally makes several of these with his allies.
- Demon Lords and Archdevils
- Face Stealer: He wears the face of his rape victim on his face as a mask, forcing Lucien to be reminded of how evil he really is.
- For the Evulz: Pretty much...but it's philosophical Evulz!
- From Nobody to Nightmare
- Genuine Human Hide: See above.
- God of Evil: The Leviathan; not so much Lucien.
- The Hedonist: To begin with, in order to corrupt Lucien. He's mellowed down and become more focused on his grander plans now though.
- Hobbes Was Right: His personal philosophy-and therefore that of the Cult-is a very, very, very dark version of this.
- Horned Humanoid: the Leviathan takes a form like this when summoned.
- Humanoid Abomination: One of his daemonic forms.
- Hypocrite: Despite being based around chaos, it's clear that he plans a lot of things out, and his entire strategies can collapse if something goes wrong (and it has). He adapts pretty quickly though.
- I Have Many Names: During his attack on Warrenstein:"I was conceived in the pits of darkness and born in a blaze of hellfire; bred for terror and mothered by Sin. I am he that the Prophet Ezra named Heir to the Great One. I am the Malignant Vice and the Herald of Darkness. I am the Morningstar. Dweller of the Deep, Maw of the Oceanic Fire, Prince of the Eleventh Hell, Vanguard of the Damned, Patron of Chaos, Lord of Envy, Scourge of the Void, Master of its Denizens and Harbinger of Hate. I will see your world burn, the fire of corruption spreading like a cancer, as blood floods your streets, plagues befall your homes, and madness takes your minds. I am the Spawn of Asmodeus, and the first thereof. Yes. I am the Eldest Evil, the one foretold to watch your world burn. I. AM. LEVIATHAN."

- Love Makes You Evil / Love Makes You Crazy
- Manipulative Bastard
- Meaningful Name: The Leviathan is a monster from the Book of Job in The Bible who does battle with another beast called the Behemoth - not unlike the daemon-brother's rivalry. And the name Lucien is awfully close to Lucifer...
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant
- Obviously Evil
- Our Dragons Are Different: His greater daemonic form is a giant winged serpent.
- The Philosopher: A dark variant.
- Pragmatic Villainy: Despite exemplifying chaos, he's shown himself to be far from Stupid Evil.
- Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: In his backstory, the Leviathan corrupted Lucien to the point of raping the former object of his affection, immediately setting him apart from other morally gray characters. Subtly implies he'll do the same to Rhea, given the chance.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Another indicator that the Leviathan's in charge.
- Rule of Symbolism: Both his human and daemonic appearance run on this.
- Satanic Archetype: There are some rather intentional parallels.
- Shout-Out: Lucien's last name, Hale, is a reference to the character from The Crucible.
- Sibling Rivalry: The Leviathan loathes his brother, the Behemoth for being more powerful, sparking their feud.
- Spell My Name with a "The"
- Split Personality: In the beginning, the two were more separated, but their relationship became more symbiotic than parasitic, and the two are now almost completely one.

- Start of Darkness: Lucien's unrequited love for a young girl led to his possession by the daemon.
- Symbiotic Possession: Over time, their relationship becomes this.
- To Create a Playground for Evil: His ultimate goal.
- Tragic Villain: Lucien, whose only real crime is wanting love through power; the Leviathan on the other hand is a straight-up monster.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Lucien himself lacks any real magical training but the unique nature of Blood Magic, coupled with the Leviathan's sheer power, allow Lucien to be far more dangerous than he'd otherwise be.
- Voice of the Legion: The disconcerting consequence of what happens when Lucien and the Leviathan's voices combine.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity
- Your Soul Is Mine: He is tasked with looking after the Souls of deceased daemons and blood magi in his realm, the Frozen Vale. More often than not, he just tortured them.
CynthiaThe Leviathan's right hand, and the High Priestess of the Cult. Originally a young girl whom the Harpy/Zachary Thatcher took on as their heir and apprentice. She is responsible for summoning the Leviathan, and serves as the Archdaemon's mistress and primary diplomat.
- Abusive Parents: Her father was verbally and physically abusive before Thatcher killed him. She later implies she was sexually abused as well.
- The Apprentice: Was this to the Harpy before the daemon's demise.
- The Dark Chick
- Demoted to Extra: Featured prominently in the Cult's first few appearances, but the Leviathan slowly began to eclipse her, representing himself in external affairs as opposed to having Cynthia do so for him.
- Dark Mistress: As mentioned above, she maintains a hedonistic relationship with her superior.
- The Dragon: To the Leviathan, answering only to him.
- Evil Redhead
- Femme Fatale
- Hidden Depths: She pleads with Andre to surrender, and in doing so reveals a very humane side that is tortured by having never known real love or family.
- Kick the Dog: Verbally tortures Hope by vividly describing how her brother "died."
- Lady Macbeth: Moreso to Lucien than to the Leviathan, as he still call the shots, she just has a lot of say in it, still.
- High Priestess
- Hot Witch
- Only One Name
- Playing with Fire: She's a Fire Magi, being forbidden to become a Blood Mage as the Cult's chief authority.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She has to be, because otherwise the Cult collapses into mindless, rather than "constructive", chaos.

- Only Sane Man: When compared to most other Cultists. Justified since the Shadows have to maintain a cool head in their public duties.
- The Spymaster
- Tattooed Crook: Sports a black and white skull-like pattern on his face.
See the above in Other Characters - Denizens of the Crimson Void.
The Harpy/Zachary ThatcherZachary Thatcher was a young man when he was chosen to be the vessel for which the Harpy to occupy. Being the first Tertius sibling to be summoned, the Harpy fashioned the Cult from a group of mindless murderers into a more silent and subtle faction. This didn't sit well with the majority, and she was soon betrayed, though she managed to survive, only to be assassinated by members of the Ablazed. Luckily, the Harpy and Thatcher left behind Cynthia to rebuild the Cult and carry on the work of the Cult.
- All There in the Manual : Like the Behemoth, her/his information is mainly derived from the Lore.
- The Cameo: Thatcher appears as a Soul in service to the Behemoth within the Crimson Void.

- Parental Substitute: It seems that Thatcher served as a father and the Harpy as a mother to Cynthia.
- Posthumous Character: Killed by the Ablazed.

- Reasonable Authority Figure: Compared to her brothers, the Harpy was always the mediator between the two, and the only one to lead a relatively peaceful version of the Cult.
- Spell My Name with a "The"
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Wanted to summon her brothers so that they could all rule over the chaos together, blind to their destructive feud.

- Fate Worse than Death: If you're consumed by the Legion, you become a part of it.
- I Am Legion
- Many Spirits Inside of One: Every single one of the Legion's victims inhabit Orion's mind.
- Meaningful Name: An obvious reference to the demon from The Bible.
- Mind Hive: The Legion itself is an accumulative entity, with every one of its victims being a part of the same system.
- Pragmatic Villainy: Recognizes that the final battle for Altekrai won't get off the ground unless the enemy knows Emilia Yeager is killed. So he does just that.
- Spell My Name with a "The"

- They Look Just Like Everyone Else!: Implied with Moncrieff, who is very normal-looking, which begs the question about just what motivated him to join the Cult.
- Those Two Bad Guys
- The Voiceless: Frost, whose tongue was cut out in prison.
Felicity Harper/ZeranaThe apparent leader of the Sisterhood and a Blood Mage.
James DouglasThe original founder of the Ablazed, a Fur-Trade Mogul who was ambushed by werewolves hired by rival, Ignatius Goodfellow. He slowly built up an entire order bent on ridding Asagorak of supernatural terrors like werewolves, vampires, Hemomancers, Necromancers, and so on.

- Badass Longcoat: A tan one, like a classic Film Noir detective.
- Blue-Collar Warlock
- Eyepatch of Power: He lost his eye when he was young to a werewolf.

- Kid with the Leash: to Halifax.
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
- The Quiet One: Possibly as a result of the trauma of being bound to a daemon.
HalifaxA greater daemon bound to Vesper as a result of tricking Stockholm in the past.
Lord Inquisitor Oberon HarkonnenThe apparent leader of the Inquisition, an Elven vampire.
- Ambiguously Evil: He's technically in league with the Cult, but he doesn't seem particularly threatening thus far, though he does appear to have some interest in the city of Gregor.
- Older Than They Look: Since he's a vampire.
- Purple Is Powerful: First appears in purple robes.
- Really 700 Years Old

- Older Than They Look
- Outside-Context Problem: Relatively speaking. His relevance is limited towards Emile, and Outside Context Quest that is the search for the Holy Ember.

- Revenge: Wants to finish what he started with Emile, who experimented on him.
