A dangerous criminal imprisoned for "Unspeakable Crimes", Harkyn found himself recently released to help defend the very kingdom that convicted him. Grim, violent and jaded, Harkyn's no hero, but his is not a hero-prone world.


A monk serving the realm who acts as aide to Antanas. Kaslo freed Harkyn from Prison (along with several other criminals) but only the two of them made it to Keystone alive. Kaslo acts as Harkyn's guide throughout the game, often supplying him with important information regarding his mission and objectives.



The enigmatic Leader of All Mankind.


A god worshiped by humans long ago as a protector of humanity, until the three Judges overthrew and banished him into another dimension. Now reviled as an evil being and remembered only as a tyrant, no one doubts that he is behind the recent Rhogar invasion. If humans are to have a chance of permanently repelling the demonic threat, they'll have to produce a champion who can repeat the Judges' deeds and save the world again.

  • Ambiguously Evil: REALLY hard to say whether he's pure evil or just... not very good at being a nice God.
  • Crystal Dragon Jesus: Err, Crystal Dragon Satan. And/or YHWH, depending. Humans' current opinion of him is the former, but his role pre-banishment seems to have been more in line with the latter. As we never hear of other gods, his religion was presumably monotheistic.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: As the being behind the Rhogar, he is pretty much this. It helps that he never so much as appears on-screen.
  • God Is Evil: A being formerly revered is now behind the invasion of the demonic forces. If his claims are true, his primary objective was to stop Antanas; reclaiming his former glory was a bonus.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen / The Voice: That's all we ever get of him.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Antanas' actions - both the mutations and exorcisms - are very bad things that will end up harming mankind in the long run; given Antanas' reputation, neither of these is likely to fall out of practice anytime soon. Whether the Rhogar Invasion was an appropriate response or not is another matter.
  • Only Works Once: He thought the Judges were just uppity mortals until they kicked his ass. He's not trying that again when a new uppity mortal comes a-knockin'.
  • Orcus on His Throne: In the end he never gets off.
  • Order Versus Chaos: Unusually, this Crystal Dragon Jesus is on the side of Chaos to Antanas' order. Neither is good news.
  • Satanic Archetype: Rules the demonic Rhogar and offers Harkyn a loaded bargain. May be a case of Satan is Good (or just not as much of an asshole as we thought.
  • The Unfought: No, you do not get to Kill the God.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist:He is horrified by Antanas' treatment of humans and failure to comprehend what the Rhogar actually are. Re-conquering the human world was his way of fixing that.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Provides a lot of exposition when we finally meet him about the state of the world, along with his, Harkyn's and Antanas' role therein. A lot of what he says is provably true, but a lot we have to take his word on. Since he paints himself and his rule as the best thing for humanity... grains of salt should be taken.
