Theor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_theor.jpg
"Young and brash, Theor comes from a long line of skilled warriors. After traveling for a few years he has moved back to the city hearing a band of bandits had raided his village. He is now seeking allies to exact revenge on the bandits."

Classed as a Fighter. One of the starting heroes, based at the Training Hall.

  • Doomed Hometown: It's not seen directly, but Theor's personal quests involve tracking down and destroying the bandit gang that pillaged his home village.
  • Heroic Lineage: He comes from one.

Gauvin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_gauvin.jpg
"Almost a King's knight but not quite, Gauvin is trying hard to become a knight on his own terms. He dreams of the day where he'll save a princess from the claws of a dragon."

Classed as a Fighter. Unlocked at the Training Hall.

  • Knight in Shining Armor: He aspires to be a classic knight — slaying dragons to rescue princesses.
  • Momma's Boy: When selling things to him, he sometimes mentions having to ask his mother about it. Some of his personal quests are to get her presents.
  • The Squire: He's "almost a King's knight but not quite".
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: One of his personal quests is to improve his sword-fighting enough to impress his father. By the time this quest is available, he'll probably be fairly high-level already, so it seems that his father takes a lot of impressing.

Lancaster

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_lancaster.jpg
"An old warrior of many campaigns, Lancaster has returned to the city to build a new company and take on mercenary contracts."

Classed as a Fighter. Unlocked at the Fighter's Guild.

  • An Axe to Grind: His best weapon affinity is for axes, although he can also use swords, spears, and hammers.
  • Band of Brothers: One of his skills is called "Brothers-in-Arms", and can grant a boost to heroes in a party he leads.
  • Old Soldier: He's a veteran, and is now building a mercenary company of his own. His personal quests relate to this.

Francesca

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_francesca.jpg
"If there's a fight to be had, you can bet Francesca will be there. She loves fighting and she's good at it. No wonder she enrolled herself in the Fighter's Guild despite her parents' desires."

Classed as a Spellcaster. Unlocked at the Fighter's Guild (despite her class).

  • Blood Knight: Keen enough on fighting to join the Fighter's Guild despite opposition.
  • Magic Knight: Her class is Spellcaster, but she's based at the Fighter's Guild. Her art shows her with both a sword and a magic staff, and she can use both — although her highest weapon affinity is actually for guns, if you can provide them.

Alicia

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_alicia.jpg
"Probably the fiercest warrior there is, it is said that Alicia was raised by dragons. It's not so hard to believe it once you see her fight."

Classed as a Fighter. Unlocked at the War College.

  • Bandaged Face: Only partially, but she has bandages around the top of her head (including across one eye).
  • Cool Helmet: She's shown in artwork with a distinctive horned helmet, although it differs a bit from the classic style used by Horny Vikings.
  • Raised by Wolves: If she really was raised by dragons, it didn't leave her with the lack of social skills which normally accompanies the trope — she's actually quite polite.

Mojian

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_mojian.jpg
"Mojian is a scary man. Banned from his homeland he came to take revenge here and rumor has it he's plotting against the King himself!"

Classed as a Spellcaster. Unlocked at the War College.

    Temple / Cathedral 

Minh

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_minh.jpg
"Earning his priestly robes during the past year, Minh has developed into a well known figure around the city. He is reliable and well liked amongst citizens."

Classed as a Spellcaster. One of the starting heroes, based at the Temple.

  • Drop the Hammer: Although he's depicted with a staff, his highest equipment affinity is actually for hammers/maces.
  • Sacred Scripture: His last personal quest is to retrieve some of these from orcs.
  • White Mage: A spellcaster priest who has two skills relating to healing (one of which shortens healing time; the other of which revives fallen comrades).

Clovis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_clovis.jpg
"The life of a city guard is not an easy one, but it suits Clovis just fine. He knows the city needs to be protected and if it weren't for him who knows if it would still be standing as it is."

Classed as a Fighter. Unlocked at the Temple.

  • City Guards: He's a city guard, although seems to be free to pursue his own affairs regardless.
  • The Leader: One of his skills increases the strength of any team he leads, and his personal quest involves leading a troop against orcs.
  • Religious Bruiser: Although a city guard, the fact that you raise his level through the Temple suggests that he (like Edward and Fiora) falls into this category.

Fiora

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_fiora.jpg
"Generous and naive, Fiora was the ideal candidate for the Order. She serves in the Cathedral as one of the most selfless paladins."

Classed as a Fighter. Unlocked at the Cathedral.

  • Drop the Hammer: Her best weapon affinity is for maces and hammers.
  • Find the Cure!: Her personal questline involves a long trip to find a cure for a sick child.
  • The Paladin: She's referred to as such by the game (although it's not an in-game class), and she has a skill that allows her to revive fallen comrades.

Edward

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_edward.jpg
"Edward is a pious man. He has been serving the Gods ever since he was a child. Sometimes he even helps those that would turn against him."

Classed as a Fighter. Unlocked at the Cathedral.

  • The Paladin: Like Fiora, he fits the archetype, being a devout warrior with a skill that allows him to revive fallen comrades.
  • Religious Bruiser: He's highly religious.

    Thief's Hideout 

Garreth

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_garreth.jpg
"A mysterious figure around the city, Garreth is a man of few words. No one knows where he comes from or what he is doing in these parts, and no one dares to ask."

Classed as a Rogue. One of the starting heroes.

  • In the Hood: Wears a big hood coupled with a high collar, leaving not a lot of his face visible.
  • Mysterious Stranger: To the public at large, anyway.
  • Shout-Out: His name may be a nod to Garrett from the Thief series.
  • Thieves' Guild: His personal quests involve him joining a gang of thieves called the White Tigers. To do this, he has to pass an initiation test — and then, when that isn't enough, he proves his abilities by stealing something from their leader.

Mila

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_mila.jpg
"Stealthy and with quick hands Mila will relieve anyone of their troubles, if by troubles you mean gold pieces that is!"

Classed as a Rogue.

  • Backhanded Compliment: She'll tell you that "you're not as stupid as you look" if you're not willing to pay full price for an item she's trying to off-load on you.
  • Five-Finger Discount: Besides the obvious fact that she's a thief, she mentions this by name when she's given a more conventional discount. It's also implied if you overcharge her for something, as this prompts her to say that she'll "be back later...".
  • Multicolored Hair: Her hair is mostly white/grey (though not obviously through age), with a bit of purple at the front which matches her eyes.
  • Treasure Map: Her personal quests involve looking for buried treasure, with the first step being to retrieve a treasure map.

Odette

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_odette.jpg
"A shadow in the night, she is rarely seen in the daylight. Rumor has it she's actually a princess fled from an eastern land, but her skillset does not seem princely."

Classed as a Rogue.

  • Elective Mute: She never speaks when visiting your shop. If you do her personal quests, however, it turns out that she can speak if she wants to.
  • Ninja: One of two heroes to fit the typical ninja image (the other being Kuro Shobi).
  • Rebellious Princess: She's rumored to be runaway royalty from a distant kingdom.
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: Odette can be equipped with projectile weapons (a category which includes shuriken and darts), although unlike Kuro Shobi, she doesn't have to be.

    School of Magic 

Melina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_melina.jpg
"First of her class at the School of Magic, Melina is set to become on of the best students in years. She is very outgoing and inquisitive by nature."

Classed as a Spellcaster. One of the starting heroes.

  • Genki Girl: She's particularly cheerful and enthusiastic in her interactions.
  • Magic Staff: Her highest affinity is for staves, although she can use other weapons as well (including bows).
  • Wizarding School: She's top of her class at one of these.

Nya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_nya.jpg
"Being a teacher at the School of Magic, Nya has trained many spellcasters in her short time there, but rarely have they become as powerful as she is."

Classed as a Spellcaster.

  • No Social Skills: She's rather odd in her interactions — for example, an unsuccessful attempt at complementing her causes her to talk about your disturbing aura, and even a successful compliment still causes her to think you're strange.
  • Magic Staff: Her highest affinity is for staves, and her art shows her with one.
  • Supernatural Is Purple: Her outfit leans heavily towards purple (as do those of two magic-using shop employees you can hire, suggesting that the colour might be associated with magic generally, although it's certainly not a universal rule).
  • Wizarding School: She's an instructor there. One of her quests involves bringing along Melina, suggesting that Melina is one of her students.
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: One of her eccentricities seems to be a mild version of this; when given a discount, she says "This gold, does it matter so?"

Azula

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_azula.jpg
"This mysterious woman comes from a distant village where she was the shaman. Spirits have guided her path with enigmatic prophecies and have led her to the city where she now resides."

Classed as a Spellcaster.

  • The Prophecy: She came to town based on spirit-delivered prophecies.
  • Proverbial Wisdom: Much of what she says takes this form, although some of her proverbs are more mystical-sounding than others.
  • Soul Power: A shaman who is guided by spirits. Her personal quests start when those spirits give her a direction to an alley in town.
  • Witch Doctor: She has healing among her skills.

    Hunter's Lodge 

Karal

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_karal.jpg
"Karal hails from the plains. She appears simple minded because she does not speak our language and it seems to suit her just fine."

Classed as a Fighter.

  • An Axe to Grind: Her artwork shows her with a large axe, and in gameplay terms, it's the piece of equipment for which she has the highest affinity.
  • Barbarian Hero: She comes from a plains tribe (possibly the same one as Kurul). She's a lot more cheerful than a lot of barbarian heroes, though.
  • Exposed to the Elements: Like a lot of barbarian heroes, she doesn't wear very much — but one of her quests is still to go and kill an animal from which she can make something warmer for the winter.
  • You No Take Candle: Her sentences all tend to be very simple — and often, she just cheerfully announces her name ("I am Karal!") as an all-purpose response. However, she may be using a form of Elective Broken Language, given that it "seems to suit her just fine" to be thought simple-minded.

Palash

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_palash.jpg
"Fearsome hunter of beasts, Palash traveled from a far away land in order to hunt a beast that can only be found on this continent, the mythical Grandicus."

Classed as a Rogue.

  • Archer Archetype: His best weapon affinity is for bows, although he can use other weapons as well. He's the hunter variant of this trope rather than a Forest Ranger — he's in town specifically to hunt a rare beast.
  • The Quiet One: He's pretty terse in most of his interactions, although he has more to say when introducing his personal quests.

Kurul

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_kurul.jpg
"This monster of a man puts fear into the hearts of his opponents just by staring at them. Kurul wants to become King of the Plains, but he needs to find his ancestor's weapon first."

Classed as a Fighter.

  • Ancestral Weapon: He wants to find the weapon of his ancestors in order to become King of the Plains.
  • Barbarian Hero: Another plains barbarian like Karal. He's rather grimmer than her, though, and probably fits the image of the typical barbarian hero more closely.
  • Hulk Speak: He always shouts and often talks about smashing things.

    Fountain / Theater 

Albert

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_albert.jpg
"Albert is a man of many talents; he can sing a song to put the most fearsome beasts to sleep, as well as entertain an inn full of revelers."

Classed as a Spellcaster. Unlocked at the Fountain.

  • The Bard: Although there's no full Bard class (he's classed as a spellcaster), this is definitely his archetype.
  • Magic Music: He "can sing a song to put the most fearsome beasts to sleep", and he can be equipped with a musical instrument.
  • Serenade Your Lover: He wants to do this as part of his personal quests.

Irene

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_irene.jpg
"Tread lightly around Irene as she does not give way easily. This swashbuckling lady will not leave anyone indifferent."

Classed as a Rogue. Unlocked at the Fountain.

  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Gets angry easily, and is probably the most demanding customer.
  • Swashbuckler: She looks like a hero out of this genre, although her personality is more abrasive than normal.

Darthos

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_darthos.jpg
"Captain of the mighty caravel Le Voyageur Darthos has sailed many seas. His seafaring days have been cut short by the grounding of his ship 5 years ago."

Classed as a Rogue. Unlocked at the Theater.

Oneira

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_oneira.jpg
"A voice like no other, Oneira has quickly rose to be the number one attraction at the Theatre, but that might only be a diversion as to her true motives."

Classed as a Spellcaster.

  • The Bard: She's based at the theatre, and she can be equipped with a musical instrument — although in fact, she has just as much affinity for magical pendants, which occupy the same inventory slot.
  • Favors for the Sexy: She seems to be used to this sort of thing — she greets you with "Finally, someone to attend to me", and when offered a discount, says that "I always get what I want".
  • Meaningful Name: Her name looks to be derived from the Greek word for "dream" (ὄνειρος), which could be read both positively (a dream come true) or less so (an illusion).
  • Paparazzi: In her first personal quest, she describes the person following her as this.

    Port 

Louca

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_louca.jpg
"People have often seen Louca bring strange devices in and out of her warehouse in the port. It's not clear what her genius mind has concocted this time!"

Classed as a Rogue.

  • Wrench Wench: She's mechanically inclined (and is depicted holding an actual wrench), although this doesn't actually have much bearing on gameplay.

Kuro Shobi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_kuro_shobi.jpg
"From a land far East, Kuro Shobi is an elite agent from an ancient empire. Better not get in her way if she wants something or else you might disappear."

Classed as a Rogue.

  • Meaningful Name: Kuro Shobi's name is probably from the Japanese 黒 (black) and 薔薇 (rose), although "shobi" is a less common reading for the latter than the alternative "bara" (as is used in the manga Kurobara Alice, for example).
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: One of her equipment slots is for projectile weapons (which includes shuriken and darts), and unlike Odette (another ninja-ish character), there aren't any alternatives which can be substituted.

Catherine

Charles

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shop_heroes_charles.jpg
  • Shout-Out: Listed in the online shop as "Professor Charles," he's described as one of the headmaster's of the School of Magic. This is likely a reference to Professor Charles Xavier.
