The Tan Nation. It is physically a rocky desert, desert land, known for being incredibly hot and dry. The Tans are well-acclimated to this climate, making the environment especially harsh toward outsiders.
Field Marshal Tannenverg
The leader of Tanolia and supreme commander of the Tan Army.
- Greater-Scope Villain: He's General Dune's superior officer and the leader of Tanolia, but isn't directly involved for most of the plot. Behind the scenes images reveals he will make an appearance in Lucifer, however.
10th "Warrior" Armored Division
The Commander of all Tan forces in Greentoria.
- A Father to His Men: Dune has an affable, almost fatherly aura toward his troops. He doesn't berate them, and even joins the assault on Sabre-Tooth Hill, believing every Tan, including him, must participate.
- Badass Grandpa: He's up there in years and is handicapped, but still risks himself by going to Azazel Island to be with his men on the front.
- Badass Mustache: It suits his age and rank.
- Big Bad: As the Commander of the invasion of Greentoria, Dune is this to the Greens.
- Big Good: He's this for the Tans in The Sabre-Tooth.
- Cool Old Guy: Possibly the oldest character in the series, and he's not afraid to get into the thick of combat with his men.
- Frontline General: In The Sabre-Tooth, he participates in the assault, saying that every able body Tan must be involved, and that he's no exception.
- The Ghost: He's mentioned several times in The Prisoner Operation, but never makes a direct appearance.
- Nice Hat: A command cap to display his rank.
- Non-Action Guy: Downplayed. On account of being a cripple, he's not one to get involved in combat often, but he will get his feet dirty when the situation calls for it, such as the Sabre-Tooth.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: General Dune stands out as one of the few commanders who isn't an Ax-Crazy Blood Knight or Sociopathic Soldier. When Windsor requests to be appointed command of the assault on Sabre-Tooth Hill, Dune tells them that there isn't enough time to reorganize the command structure, but chances are that he most certainly would have otherwise.
- So Proud of You: It's small, but he gives Tuscan a nod of approval for helping break the Sabre-Tooth.
- Staff of Authority: Uses a cane to help him get around.
The former Commanding Officer of Viking Company.
- A Day in the Limelight: He's upgraded to main character status in The Sabre-Tooth.
- A Father to His Men: He often looks out for the well-being of his men, and treats them all with respect. One example is in The Prisoner Operation, where Private Wheat is captured by the Greens. While the private admonishes himself for being ignorant, Windsor simply assures him that it's not his fault.
- An Arm and a Leg: Has both of his legs melted by Crisp's flamethrower.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Goes from captain to major after taking both the Sabre-Tooth and Hedge Base, because he is that awesome.
- Big Brother Instinct: He spends most of the Sabre-Tooth looking after Tuscan and making sure the rookie doesn't get himself killed making lethal mistakes. He's likely also one of Tuscan's main influences, leading to him becoming a captain, much like Windsor.
- Big "NO!": Right before Brown is killed by Moss.
- Breakout Character: Goes from major character in The Prisoner Operation to protagonist of The Sabre-Tooth. Windsor has since become one of the most popular characters in the series.
- The Captain: He was a captain, until he was promoted to major after taking Hedge Base.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: Loses both his legs during his interrogation in The Prisoner Operation.
- Majorly Awesome: He successfully took the Sabre-Tooth without any armored support, and secured a much needed Tan foothold in Greentoria. He then went on to do the same thing with Hedge Base, becoming a high valued target for the Greens.
- Nerves of Steel: Throughout The Prisoner Operation, Windsor demonstrates no fear when the Greens threaten to torture him, and doesn't resort to begging, even when they threaten (and later proceed to) burn his legs.
- Rank Up: Bestowed the rank of major after taking Hedge Base.
- Sole Survivor: In The Prisoner Operation, Windsor remarks that the Greens' counterattack on Hedge Base completely wiped out Viking Company.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: After taking the Sabre-Tooth, Windsor went on to capture Hedge Base, and if the defenses in the original Plastic Apocalypse are anything to go by, it wasn't an easy feat.
A sergeant assigned to be Major Windsor's adjutant.
- Arch-Enemy: Sergeant Moss has it out for Brown, after being shot by him.
- Boom, Headshot!: Shot at point blank range by Moss.
- Defiant to the End: Despite being held at gunpoint with Moss shoving his barrel in his face, Brown doesn't hesitate to throw the grenade and create a diversion.
- Famous Last Words: "Oh, you burn in HELL!"
- Half the Man He Used to Be: He was already dead, but his grenade blows his corpse in half.
- Number Two: To Windsor in The Prisoner Operation.
A private in Viking Company.
- Mauve Shirt: Given some characterization as a wannabe tough guy, to stand out from the other rank in file Tans.
- Uncertain Doom: There's no mention of what happened to him after the events of The Sabre-Tooth, but if Windsor's word is anything to go by, he possibly met his demise with the rest of Viking Company in Hedge Base.
The Battalion Executive Officer of the Tan 10th Armored Division Grenadiers.
- The Voice: We certainly hear him, but never see him.
The Commanding Officer of Cavalry Company. Tuscan was originally just a sergeant, until he proved his colors in the Battle of the Sabre-Tooth.
- A Day in the Limelight: He's slated to be one of the main characters of Lucifer.
- The Captain: Of Cavalry Company in Lucifer.
- Character Development: From Naïve Newcomer to seasoned soldier. Tuscan spends most of The Sabre-Tooth following Windsor's lead and deferring to him for orders, but Windsor leaves him in command while he takes Sabre-Tooth Hill, forcing him to start thinking on his own feet. He lasts long enough for General Dune to arrive with The Cavalry, and later receives a nod of approval from him. To top it off, Tuscan went on to become a captain, just like Windsor.
- Ensign Newbie: In charge of a full platoon, yet hasn't been in combat at all or even seen a Green yet. Azazel Island quickly rectified that.
- The Lancer: To Windsor in The Sabre-Tooth.
- Naïve Newcomer: His lack of combat experience and leadership skills forces him to follow Windsor for most of the battle. He tries to emulate Windsor's leadership by ordering wounded soldiers to be taken back, and briefly forgot the benefit of keeping your head behind cover until Windsor pulled him out of the way. He eventually grows out of this, and becomes a captain.
- New Meat: He'd never been in combat prior to the assault on Sabre-Tooth Hill. He grows out of this after gaining some combat experience.
- Only a Flesh Wound: Gets shot by Corporal Gordon at the end of The Sabre-Tooth, but it's a minor wound and he's back on his feet soon after.
- Pet the Dog: The fact that he was willing to have a civil conversation with Shamrock at all qualifies as this. Considering all the crap Shamrock had gone through, Tuscan was probably the only person who had a friendly interaction with him. Unfortunately, Corporal Gordon fired on the Tans, prompting them to return fire and slaughter the surviving Greens.
- Rank Up: From sergeant to captain.
- Took a Level in Badass: He started out as a fairly capable platoon sergeant in The Sabre-Tooth. Come Lucifer, he's received the rank of Captain and assumed full command of Calvary Company.
- Thousand-Yard Stare: Upon seeing the tortured Tan prisoners on Azazel Island. Windsor brings him back to reality shortly after.
- Time To Step Up, Sergeant: Tuscan's commanding officer, Captain Higgins, along with two thirds of Cavalry Company, was killed on the transport to the Sabre-Tooth, leaving him in charge of 2nd Platoon. Windsor puts his leadership skills to the test when leaves him to finish off the Greens while he and Viking Company go after Major Hyde.Tuscan: Captain, now what?Windsor: Goddammit, can't you figure anything out on your own, Tuscan?Tuscan: Sir, you're the one in charge.Windsor: Well, it's time for you to lead. Sabre-Tooth Hill is my objective. You're going to finish off this line.Tuscan: How am I supposed to do that, Captain?Windsor: Well, you figure it out, Sergeant.
The Executive Company Officer of Cavalry Company and Captain Tuscan's adjutant.
- Number Two: He's Tuscan's adjutant.
A major of the 10th Armored Division, in charge of the assault on Sabre-Tooth Hill.
- Attack! Attack! Attack!: This accurately surmises his entire offensive against the entrenched Greens.
- Ax-Crazy: Described as such by Windsor, though Dune believes his lunacy to be an asset in the taking of Sabre-Tooth Hill. We quickly learn why Windsor feels this way...
- Blood Knight: His tactics are ridiculously straightforward, but extremely aggressive.
- Boom, Headshot!: Instantly killed this way.
- General Failure: Led three unsuccessful attacks against the Sabre-Tooth, which led to General Dune demoting his ass, and is killed in the fourth, leaving Windsor to salvage the operation. All he succeeded in, was getting vast quantities of Tan soldiers needlessly slaughtered en masse.
- General Ripper: His straightforward approach often results in high casualty rates. By the time the fourth attack begins, the valley is littered with Tan corpses from the previous failed assaults.
- Jerkass: Upon Windsor and Tuscan linking up with his Armored Division, he merely remarks, "About time you pulled your thumbs out of your asses." Just in case you didn't realize he's not a pleasant person to be around.
- Killed Mid-Sentence: "Goddammit! Get your pansy ass—!"
- No Kill Like Overkill: Killed instantly by a stray bullet... only for his corpse to be subsequently eviscerated by rifle fire, and his vehicle destroyed.
