Characters / Spore Wiki Fantasy Universe Polar Lands

Go To

The Polar Lands encompass the north of Koldenwelt's eastern continent. A vast expanse of land, primarily composed of woodland, taiga and tundra at the northmost parts, it is one of the oldest regions of the world in terms of civilization, though in the modern age, no great power claims this region as its own. The Saphronian Hetmanate, one of the provinces of the Empire of Man, is situated there, as are the lands of the elusive Néva. Through the great mountain ranges of the west lie the Arakai Mountains, home of the Arakai, while at the central peaks lies Castle Nightshade, the homeland of all pureblood vampires. At the northeast, the Endless Host have settled in the region known as the Serenity Woods, while hidden away from civilized eyes, the Cult of the Eclipse makes its base at a great crystalline cave complex.

    Nikola: Heed this message meant for you from friendly Inquisitor Nikola; fuck you and your whore mother!

  • Guns Akimbo: Wielded a Saphronian handgun in each hand.
  • Killed Off for Real: Killed by Maguruk the Wolf during the party's final confrontation with him, with the werewolf ripping his throat open with a claw swipe which ended the Inquisitor's life almost instantly.

  • Light 'em Up: His handguns were enchanted with light magic, allowing him to fire bullets charged with light with every shot. It proved devastating against the average Néva.

He gained a hatred for all vampires, which would only pass when he was forced to join forces with his enemies in order to fight the dreaded Zran Kar, leading him to find out vampires were not the mindless, pure evil beasts he believed them to be.

  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Dragostea through the events of Red Harmony, eventually leading to a Relationship Upgrade.

Vila Elves

    Lucretia Marzana 

Grand Duchess Lucretia Marzana

Species: Vila elf
Alignment: Indeterminate

"With all due respect to the Uroboros and the bubble they reside in, I believe that the perspective gained from observing the Empire from thousands of leagues away belies the seriousness of the situation here in the Orient. The Eastern savages need to be reminded of their place."

Leader of the Vila elves, Lucretia Marzana is a cunning manipulator with over eight centuries of experience. She thrives where political intrigue is rife; not even the other members of the Uroboros feel exactly safe when she is nearby. Poisons, daggers, cursed amulets, slander and blackmail are the weapons she wields with finesse and precision, and even her lust can be used against her enemies: some say that the very lipstick she uses is toxic.

  • Cain and Abel: Murdered her brother in order to take the position of Duchess for herself.
  • Fantastic Racism: Has a great hatred for Imperial humans.

"I really hope you're pointing that sword at me as a joke. You won't like me if it isn't."

King of the Snowfall Tribe, Riadmanath (or just Riad) is the most known member of the Néva people by outsiders, as he has travelled the world, typically by the side of Pelagrios Sea-Cutter during his many misadventures. However, he would eventually need to return back home in order to settle matters with the other tribal kings of his people.

  • Blade on a Stick: His main weapon is a spear, and during The Storm Chaser, he used the namesake artifact for a time.

  • Passing the Torch: Gives the Stormchaser to Daokusk as he believes him a better fit for the Néva's protector.

King Dragon-Elf

Species: Néva
Alignment: Lawful Neutral

"I would ask you, young human; why must you stray so far from the world that was, having minds of industry over that of stewardship of this earth? Besides...I am far too old to accept the changing world as it is."

King of the Dragon-Rider Tribe, the man known as Dragon-Elf is the oldest, and possibly one of the first Néva to ever live. Such is his prestige and might that he is considered the de facto leader of the entire Néva race.

  • The Ageless: Given the fact he has lived 30,000 years and remains alive, he is likely immortal.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's open to discussion with outsiders in order to protect the world, unlike most of his fellow kings.
  • Time Abyss: Described as over 30,000 years old, which would put him as born shortly after the world itself was made.

King Bone-Breaker

Species: Néva

"You left your tribe to me. You thought that perhaps I would have honoured our pact? No. Of course I would not. They now belong to me, and believe me. That has made my tribe strong."

King of the Bone-Shield Tribe, Bone-Breaker was a warmonger and tyrant with a hatred for all outsiders, be they non-Néva or members of his own race who didn't belong to his tribe. Gathering the rest of the Névari kings to his side, he sought to unearth ancient powers and bring calamity to the north.

  • Arch-Enemy: Riad. The feeling was mutual.

  • Body Horror: He had his heart replaced with that of an Arcadian.
  • Cool Helmet: Wore a helm made out of a frost bear skull, adorned with horns.

King Assrivak the Spider

"Will drink all of your blood! Dance around skeletons!"

King of the Web-Spinner Tribe, Assrivak was one of the Névari kings to pledge themselves to Bone-Breaker. A maniacal and highly irritable individual, he was a feared figure among the elves of the north.

  • An Ice Person: Evidently had some control over ice magic, as he used it to animate a massive scorpion made out of solid ice. After it was destroyed, he exclaimed he would make a new one.
  • Ax-Crazy: He was clearly quite out there, on top of being extremely violent. Often threatened to drink the blood out of Riad's party too.
  • Co-Dragons: Alongside the other Névari kings, to Bone-Breaker.
  • Famous Last Words: "...No questions. No questions..."
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: The party realized he was irritable just by looking at him. Just asking him questions sent him into an angry fit.

  • We Hardly Knew Ye: His sole appearance was also when he was killed.

    Maguruk the Wolf 

King Maguruk the Wolf

Species: Néva

King of the Wolf-Howl Tribe, Maguruk was one of the Névari kings to pledge themselves to Bone-Breaker. Infected with lycanthropy, he reveled in the bloodshed which Bone-Breaker provided him.

  • Killed Off for Real: Impaled with the Stormchaser after being weakened by Nanuk and Norrigan.
  • Our Werebeasts Are Different: Out of the shapeshifting Névari kings, Maguruk was the only one explicitly described as a werebeast; in his case, a werewolf. However, he appeared to have full control over his transformation, and didn't require a full moon to transform.
  • Slasher Smile: Sported one shortly before he assumed his werewolf form during The Storm Chaser.
  • Summon Magic: He had the power to summon spectral wolves to his aid.

    Nanuk the Bear 

King Nanuk the Bear

Species: Néva
Alignment: Indeterminate

"If you wish me to let you pass without violence, perhaps you can tell the Bone-Shields to get off my lands. Maguruk, Tiritchik and Assrivak saw an opportunity in serving Bone-Breaker. I see nothing but a massacre in it."

King of the Bear-Claw Tribe, Nanuk was one of the Névari kings to pledge themselves to Bone-Breaker. In his case, however, he did so in order to spare his people of the evil king's wrath; he wants nothing to do with his atrocities.

  • Animorphism: He had the ability to shapeshift into a massive bear.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Especially if you're Maguruk the Wolf, who was on the receiving end of a bear beating.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrives in his bear form to fight Maguruk's werewolf form during the confrontation with the latter, buying his allies precious time.

"All of you, dim of wit and short of belief. The magic of the ancient world is around you, here. And it favours only those who believe in it."

  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Had the Stormchaser rammed into her, which knocked her into a boiling geyser to her death.
  • Playing with Fire: Practiced pyromancy, an unusual magic among the frost-living Néva, channeling it through her staff.

  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female Néva ruler.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Her sole appearance was also when she was killed. Out of the Névari kings, she had the least screen time.

Arakai Clans

    Hirce Kerene 

Hirce Kerene

Species: Arakai
Alignment: Lawful Good

"Every great warrior begins as nothing but a child. It requires a true heart to rise above one's childish naivety and become who you were meant to be. But Hirce never let go of who he used to be, and, instead, chose to embrace it. In my long life, I have seen many aspiring warriors grow up to be great men and women, and just as many people fail to do so... Yet still, Hirce arose greater than any of them."

Hirce Kerene is the Arakai warlord of clan Kerene and a servant to Harstag as one of the three Avatars of the Hunt. Already celebrated by the Arakai as one of their greatest warriors of all time for his natural prowess, Hirce, given his nature as one of Harstag's chosen, is effectively considered to be a demigod among his people. One of the few Arakai with more knowledge on the outside world than just some faint rumors, Hirce is noticeably more open towards outsiders than his predecessors.

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: As an Arakai, he is an elf-sized humanoid insect.
  • Blade on a Stick: His weapon of choice is the magical spear named Dyrfleinn, which was crafted by Saiteir blacksmiths.
  • Expy: Of Cú Chulainn.

  • MacGuffin Guardian: Guarded the artifact known as the Windwailer during the events of Wrath of Night by Harstag's request, until the protagonists earned the right to take it by besting him in combat.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: He shows genuine interest in other races, which is rare for an Arakai, who are normally xenophobic.
  • Red Baron: Aspect of the Hawk.
  • World's Strongest Man: Celebrated as the greatest warrior among the Arakai race.
  • Worthy Opponent: Considers Longinus this during Wrath of Night, with the feeling being mutual.



Species: Arakai
Alignment: Neutral Good

"My deeds are my burden to bear alone."

Hrafn is an exiled Arakai warrior responsible for instigating a war between the Arakai clans at the behest of warlord Ire Lamind. Despite resigning himself to continue working as an assassin, he feels extremely guilty for his actions and seeks to use his work - even if considered to be unfit for warriors by his people - as a means to make amends. While primarily residing in the southern Koldenwelt, given the nature of his work, Hrafn is often travelling all across the world.

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: As an Arakai, he is an elf-sized humanoid insect. His nature has disturbed some people, though he's not particularly bothered about being told he looks grotesque.
  • Cool Mask: He wears a mask designed to resemble Dysjofurr, Mortium's Arakai persona.
  • Expy: Of Corvo Attano.
  • The Exile: Exiled from Arakai lands due to his murder of clan leader Carth. It was only by Ire's intervention that he wasn't outright killed during the act.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: He blames himself over the deaths caused by the Arakai's wars, which have even led him to develop some suicidal thoughts. He hasn't acted on them just yet, however.
  • Named Weapons: His shortsword is named Ehdra, which roughly translates from Qoranit tongue to The Broken.
  • Nice Guy: When out of the assassin element, he is a fairly nice and helpful individual. He is welcoming to other races, which is rare for an Arakai, which has led him to become involved with a number of other adventurers.
  • Professional Killer: He's an assassin, choosing to remain one even after the events leading to his exile.
  • Red Baron: The Raven.

Nightshade Clan

    Varelos von Dalverat 

Count Varelos von Dalverat I

Species: Pureblood vampire
Alignment: Lawful Neutral

"Your stereotypes are not true, human. Is it really evil for me to vish for the safety of my family? For zheir survival? Are you really zis selfish?"

The original and first member of the Pureblood vampire species to exist in the surface of Koldenwelt, Varelos is the leader of the House of Dalverat, Purple Clan of Deathly Nightshade. The entity who led to the birth of vampires across the world, a demon of indestructible properties and a tyrant in ancient times, Varelos led many great crusades against the inhabitants of the old world and nearly caused the destruction of the Derevar elves until his age mellowed him down and his malevolence was replaced with a fatherly desire to protect the vampires he had birthed.

  • Arch-Enemy: Formerly Yurthez Bertonius and his entire family line. However, after War of Vampires, the two of them managed to make peace with one another.
  • Bat Out of Hell: He resembles a humanoid bat.
  • Berserk Button: Being called evil just for being a vampire. Not only he finds it insulting, he also finds it incredibly racist.

  • BFS: Varelos' weapon of choice was a greatsword known as Bertonius' Demise, which was as big as he was tall, which is already nearly twice the size of an adult man. The sword had the ability of trapping the souls of those slain by it, and enemies struck by the blade will feel the combined pain of every soul in the sword.
  • Casting a Shadow: Being a dark magic entity akin to a demigod, Varelos has full mastery of dark magic. A common technique used by him is throwing spheres of dark from his palms as if they were bombs.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite being a vampire and a master of darkness, Varelos is a benevolent Reasonable Authority Figure who has no desire for villainy, merely wishing to live in peace with the world.
    Varelos: "I have no desire for conquest, or destruction. I merely vish to have my children survive. You all deem me evil, demonic, and ozher slurs because of vhat my body is made of. But ze fact dark magic flows through my veins does not mean I am as bad as ze Adversary."
  • Enemy Mine: With Kinmorunddraver during The Forgotten Lands, where he joined forces with his team to stop Imperator Kalarah.
  • Expy: He is the setting's equivalent of Count Dracula.
  • Heel–Face Turn: During his early years, Varelos was a tyrant and a conqueror, causing the genocide of the Derevar Elves as well as terrorized the world for thousands of years. However, age has mellowed him down and he has become a benevolent, if not grandfatherly figure.
  • Immortality: Cannot die of old age or any weapon but the Coronaira Whip and a few other Simulacra artifacts, a trait unique to him compared to other vampires.
  • Last of His Kind: Inverted. Varelos was the very first vampire in the world, created by the Simulacrum Zran Kar.
  • Made of Indestructium: While it's possible to harm Dalverat and slow him down, destroying him is completely impossible. The only weapon capable of killing him are the Coronaira Whip, Caligaduro's Void Matrices and Mortium's Scythe.
  • Mighty Glacier: While he is not particularly agile, Varelos is tremendously strong. He can swing his BFS with little difficulty even after being weakened during War of Vampires, and he can sustain much more punishment than his humanoid, unarmored body would indicate, being capable of shrugging off most conventional attacks.
  • Monster Progenitor: He was the first Pureblood vampire, and he created the rest of the race by mating with his four brides.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: At least, not evil anymore
  • Our Vampires Are Different: This one is half-demon and is naturally a bat-like creature in appearance.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old.
  • Vampire Vords: Speaks like zis.

  • Red Baron: The Vampire Queen.
  • Royal Rapier: Anian's weapon of choice is a decorated rapier which is used as a catalyst for her fire magic. She fights with it by setting it ablaze and using it to thrust or slash her enemies, launching spheres or blasts of fire from it at each thrust or swing.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: During the events of War of Vampires, when Zran Kar took over the Clan.

  • Noodle Incident: She and Khadya had some kind of encounter which Alles remembers fondly, though details are hazy at best.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old.

"Let's skip the formalities. Have sex with me!"

The second youngest of the Dalverat Sisters, Hamoins is the third bride of Count von Dalverat. In a contrast to her siblings, she displays malevolent and sadistic tendencies, caring for little else than to satiate her seemingly infinite sex drive. Varelos, her sisters and her victims have all failed to completely satiate her so far, though she's not complaining; after all, it just means she needs more.

  • An Ice Person: Hamoins has full power over cryomancy, the magic school of ice. She uses her magic to create glaciers, freeze her enemies on the spot, fire icicles from her fingers and even lower the temperature of the ambient.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her stomach is fully exposed as part of her Stripperiffic attire.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: During the events of War of Vampires, when Zran Kar took over the Clan.
  • Buxom Is Better: Hamoins has the largest breasts of the Dalverat Sisters, and while they are not big enough to be unpleasant, they are big enough to drive men crazy and make her own sisters jealous.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Hamoins' weapon of choice is a mace, notable among the Dalverat Sisters' weapons for being the only one not based on a blade. Hamoins uses her mace to bludgeon and force her enemies to beg for mercy through pain, and she can also create powerful ice blasts through it by bashing it against surfaces, be them solid walls or organic flesh.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Hamoins wears blue, and her hair and skin have blue pigments.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: She was the receiving end of this during her battle with Xacutus during War of Vampires, where she failed to even make the mad pyromancer flinch while nearly being roasted alive by him.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a large pair of horns upon her head, more imposing than those of her children.
  • Horny Devils: She's one of the progenitors of the succubi, and resembles one herself. Out of the Dalverat Sisters, she's the one the act the most like a horny devil.
  • Jerkass: Hamoins is an uncaring, hedonistic and egotistic entity who cares for little else than her own pleasure.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: However, she genuinely loves Varelos, her sisters and her children, and is willing to put her pleasure behind her to come to their aid. Even with her conflict with her firstborn daughter Dragostea, deep down she still loves her. Very deep down, mind you.
  • Kick the Dog: Her actions when meeting the team of The Forgotten Lands, where she seduced them to fight each other for her merely because she enjoyed doing so.
  • Really Gets Around: Her nymphomania is her most notable trait, to the point of surpassing even her own succubus offspring.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old.
  • She's Got Legs: She doesn't bother trying to hide her legs at all.
  • Winged Humanoid: Possesses a pair of large, bat-like wings, more impressive and imposing looking than those of their offspring.

    Hys Dalverat 

Hys Dalverat

Species: Pureblood vampire
Alignment: True Neutral

"All I care for is the well-being of my family."

The youngest of the Dalverat Sisters, Hys is the last bride of Count von Dalverat. She is noted for her easy-going and welcoming personality, being perhaps the most open of the vampiric leaders for dialog with outsiders. Killed by Lord Akharav in the past, recent events led her to return to the world of the living.

  • Back from the Dead: She was murdered by Lord Akharav thousands of years ago, but was revived by Zran Kar during the events of War of Vampires.
  • Buxom Is Better: Hys is quite proud of her bust, which while is the smallest of the four Dalverat Sisters, is still quite large by human standards.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Hys wears purple, and her hair and skin have purplepigments.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a large pair of horns upon her head, more imposing than those of her children.
  • Horny Devils: She's one of the progenitors of the succubi, and resembles one herself, though she doesn't have the attitude of one.
  • Nice Guy: Like her elder sister Alles, she is noted for her friendly demeanor, which makes her well liked across the Clan.
  • Kukris Are Kool: Hys' weapon of choice is a poison-infused kukri, which has enough toxic properties with it to fatally poison men and beasts alike with a single stab. Hys prefers to fight with it by using swift attacks on the enemy's weak spots, using the weapon as an assassin would instead of a warrior unlike her sisters.
  • Poisonous Person: Hys is a master of the art of venomancy, the magic school of poison. Using her powers, she can infect entire landscapes with toxins and diseases, and her mere touch can cause pestilence if she so wishes. She refrains from using this power at Castle Nightshade in fear of damaging Alles' garden.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Born 4,900 years old, though she's spent a few millenia dead.
  • Winged Humanoid: Possesses a pair of large, bat-like wings, more impressive and imposing looking than those of their offspring.

    Aurora Dalverat 

Aurora Dalverat

Species: Succubus
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

"You believe yourselves safe under zhe sun? Vell, sorry to break zhis to you, but you are vrong. Nozhing holds back zhe Coven of Glass; you build your valls, ve vill eizher fly or break zhem. You raise your arms, and ve vill dismember zhem. Now, enough vords, too much talking and too little aczion! Enterzain me, playzhing!"

Count von Dalverat's oldest daughter, Aurora Dalverat is the firstborn child of the matriarch Anian. Straight-forward and hot-blooded, Aurora thrives from fighting as much as she does from blood, and is the leader and founder of a branch of the Nightshade Clan known as the Coven of Glass - a sisterhood of Succubi swordswomen and pyromancers who maintain the presence of the Nightshade Clan in the Eastern regions of Koldenwelt, particularly the Sea of Sand.

  • Action Girl: Eager for the chance of facing others in combat.
  • Bare Your Midriff: As part of her Stripperiffic outfit.
  • Bedlah Babe: Her attire, and that of her Coven of Glass companions, make them resemble belly dancers, though they're more interested in battle than dancing.
  • Blood Knight: One of the more violent of the firstborn succubi, she thrives in getting into fights.
  • Buxom Is Better: Rather proud of her large bust.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She only drinks the blood of soldiers, as to keep children, the sick, and the elderly from being harmed.
  • Eye Scream: Had her right eye torn out by Dragostea, something which she seems unable to heal from.
  • Flechette Storm: She can shatter her two swords into petal-sized, flaming shards of shrapnel, as sharp as glass, which can be telekinetically manipulated by Aurora to both damage her enemies and reform back to the form they assumed prior.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a pair of horns upon her head, which is typical for succubi.
  • Horny Devils: She's a succubus.
  • Hot-Blooded: The most out of the Count's female children, she's always eager to get things done quickly and in a straight-forward manner.
  • Playing with Fire: A proficient pyromancer, much like her mother.
  • Pride: Described as having a sense of pride that dissuades any subtlety to her presence, as she finds it preferable to charge and face enemies head on rather than attacking from behind and remaining unseen.
  • Named Weapons: Her two swords, which are named Strigoi and Tepes.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old.
  • Red Baron: The Diva of the Desert, the Sunlight Maiden.
  • Scars Are Forever: Her attire hides some permanent scars she has sustained over the ages.
  • She's Got Legs: Like her mother, she emphasizes her legs by keeping one visibly more exposed than the other.
  • Sibling Rivalry: With Dragostea. It used to reach violent levels in the past, but in the current day, they've reduced it to just snarky vitriol levels.
  • Vampire Vords: Speaks like zis, much like her fazher the Count.
  • Winged Humanoid: Possesses a pair of large, bat-like wings.

    Kareena Dalverat 

Kareena Dalverat

Species: Succubus
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

"Don't worry. I don't bite... much..."

The first female daughter of Alles Dalverat, Kareena's sadistic tendencies and unusual love for killing make her a contrast to her mother, and also led her to get the moniker of "black sheep" of the ancient Dalverat family. She is considered the prime of the succubus stereotype and may well be the very source of them, encouraging her younger succubus sisters to follow her steps whenever the opportunity arises.

  • Bare Your Midriff: Due to not wearing any clothing but a bra and shoulderpads from waist up.
  • Big Brother Bully: Said to have bullied Aurora, Dragostea and Otravaena during their childhood.
  • The Ghost: Hasn't been featured in any stories so far.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a pair of horns upon her head, which is typical for succubi.
  • Horny Devils: She's a succubus. In fact, she's believed to have single-handedly created the succubus stereotype.
  • It's All About Me: Highly selfish and self-centered, seeing her victims are little more than "snacks" she's eventually going to discard for something else later.
  • Jerkass: Bullies her sisters and acts like a rebel towards her parents and aunts, much to their dismay.
  • Really Gets Around: Her promiscuity is believed to have led to the creation of the stereotype that all succubi want nothing but sex. She revels on it.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old.
  • She's Got Legs: Her minimal skirt leaves her legs all exposed.
  • Winged Humanoid: Possesses a pair of large, bat-like wings.

    Dragostea Dalverat 

Dragostea Dalverat-Bertonius

Species: Succubus
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

"Mortalkind requires protectors and saviours in times dire... Like a mother, I consider their lives as my responsibility, and not my food."

The first female daughter of Hamoins Dalverat, Dragostea was exiled from the Nightshade Clan thousands of years ago when she became romantically involved with one of the Dalverat family's hated Derevar enemies. She would eventually settle in the northeast, where she founded the Sanguine Estate and became the head of Petit Mort, a particularly famed brothel.

  • Bare Your Midriff: Her typical outfit has her stomach fully exposed.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Yurthez Bertonius through the events of Red Harmony, eventually leading to a Relationship Upgrade.
  • Buxom Is Better: Described as having the largest bust of the firstborn succubi, which makes sense given who her mother is.
  • The Exile: Was exiled from the Nightshade Clan due to becoming romantically involved with a member of the Bertonius clan of Derevar elves. She was eventually accepted back into the family during War of Vampires, though she typically resides at her own estate anyway.
  • Happily Married: Married Yurthez Bertonius some time after the events of Red Harmony.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a pair of horns upon her head, which is typical for succubi. Due to her fight with Aurora, one of them is shorter than the other.
  • Horny Devils: She's a succubus.
  • Interspecies Romance: She has a history with falling in love with Derevar elves, in particular those of the Bertonius line, which her other family members normally find very revolting. Her exile was due to becoming involved with Istvan Barnaszaroth, an ancestor of the Bertonius lineage. In the modern day, she fell in love with his last descendant, Yurthez Bertonius, and this time it stuck.
  • Official Couple: Hooked up with Yurthez Bertonius at the end of Red Harmony.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old.
  • Red Baron: The Red Countess.
  • Scars Are Forever: A faint scar runs from her lower lip to her chin, sustained during the battle with Aurora briefly before her exile.
  • She's Got Legs: Her minimal skirt leaves her legs all exposed.
  • Winged Humanoid: Possesses a pair of large, bat-like wings.

    Otravaena Dalverat 

Otravaena Dalverat

Species: Succubus
Alignment: True Neutral

"For the safety of my family, everything!"

The first female daughter of Hys Dalverat, Otravaena is the Clan's spymaster, hiding within the society of the Sovereignty of Dryada in order to keep track of vampire hunters under the disguise of the authoritarian and stoic Fangbane director Arithanem Fil'hareia. In truth, however, she is among the friendliest and girliest of all succubuskind, who merely does what she does to protect her family members.

  • Bare Your Midriff: Both her true form and her elven disguise keep their stomachs exposed.
  • Buxom Is Better: In her Aithrena disguise, which has rather advantageous assets.
  • Genki Girl: In spades. She has the girliness and enthusiasm of a teenager.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a pair of horns upon her head, which is typical for succubi.
  • Horny Devils: She's a succubus.
  • Master of Disguise: She has been infiltrating elven society for centuries, and they never found out the leader of the world's largest guild of vampire hunters is a vampire herself.
  • Mean Boss: In her Arithanem Fil'hareia persona, which is a complete 180º turn of what she truly is. It earned her the respect of the Fangbane guild, as even though she deals with the administrative side of things, none of them would dare incur her ire.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: In her elven disguise, she's prone to do this to show she is growing particularly displeased.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old.
  • Sexy Secretary: Her Arithanem Fil'hareia disguise invokes this; a beautiful and shapely woman, sexier even than Otravaena's true form, though she's entirely unapproachable due to her foul disposition.
  • Winged Humanoid: Possesses a pair of large, bat-like wings.

    Nosfer of Sweartham 

Nosfer of Sweartham

Species: Ordnung
Alignment: Lawful Evil

"Heh... heh... heh..."

Count von Dalverat's butler and engineer, Nosfer of Sweartham is perhaps the first Halfblood vampire, transformed into one after making a deal with Zran Kar which led to his exile from the Cobalt Kingdom. While not attending to Dalverat's wishes, he makes experiments on his personal laboratory.

  • Bad Boss: Nosfer constantly mistreats his creations, including Golem and his Saringandacs, who he sees as little more than stupid lab assistants. The only one of his creations to not be mistreated is Dornmuunon, and probably with good reason.
  • Dark Is Evil: Unlike his masters, Nosfer is quite clearly evil. However, his servitude to Count Varelos is absolute and he will not do evil if it goes against his master's wishes.
  • Deal with the Devil: Made a deal with Zran Kar to learn forbidden knowledge over fleshweaving, which led him to be transformed into a vampire.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: During War of Vampires, when he defended the halls of Castle Nightshade from the protagonists, him and Golem were both distracted as Aurora, Dragostea and Khadya essentially did a strip tease show in front of them.
  • The Dreaded: Most vampires keep away from Nosfer due to his malignant behaviour. Considering his actions and torturing of his prisoners, they have a good reason to.
    Golem: "One thing Golem noticed was werewolf man in nearby cage. Father keeps werewolf man trapped for reason Golem doesn't know. When father grabbed whip, werewolf man cowered."
  • Evil Genius: Nosfer spent several decades of his life living hidden inside Klaxxa borders, learning how to use and recreate their machines. He is one of the most intelligent vampires in the Nightshade Clan, having mechanized Castle Nightshade to a great extent.
  • Evil Laugh: Lets out a prolonged, quiet and sinister laugh on occasion, which other vampires find creepy.
  • The Igor: Count von Dalverat is Dracula, and he's his Igor.
  • Jerkass: He created a Flesh Golem servant who treats him as if he was his father and one true master... and he mistreats it daily.
  • Mad Scientist: He has his own laboratory which he uses to create creatures like Sarigandacs and Gargoyles.
  • Monster Lord: He is the creator of the Sarigandac gremlins who guard Castle Nightshade.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Unlike most Ordnung, Nosfer displays no racist tendencies, likely something he developed over thousands of years of working around a myriad of different vampiric creatures.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: As an Ordnung, he is a vampire kobold.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Around 4,900 years old, making him the oldest living Halfblood vampire.
  • Sadist: Takes glee in torturing prisoners, as Golem witnessed when he was whipping a captured werewolf.
  • Softspoken Sadist: Very sadistic, Nosfer enjoys torturing his prisoners and test subjects, especially werewolves.
  • Undying Loyalty: Despite his evil tendencies, he is entirely loyal to the Count, even if he's not evil himself. Nosfer admires Valores like a demigod, and sees serving under him as a great honour.
  • Whip It Good: Nosfer uses a whip to intimidate and torture his victims and subjects. The whip has several spiky barbs on it to inflict maximum pain, though it isn't fit to be used as a proper weapon.



Species: Stitched creature
Alignment: True Neutral

"Father loves Golem. Golem knows."

A gigantic amalgamation of body parts given life, Golem is Nosfer's "steed" and lackey. Despite his huge size and intimidating appearance, he is actually very friendly.

  • A Dog Named "Dog": Or rather, a Flesh Golem named Golem.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Golem is a large mess of body parts given life by dark magic, and yet he is one of the kindest entities in the whole Nightshade Clan.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: During War of Vampires, when he defended the halls of Castle Nightshade from the protagonists, him and Golem were both distracted as Aurora, Dragostea and Khadya essentially did a strip tease show in front of them.
  • Dumb Muscle: Lacking in brain, but tremendously strong.
  • Flesh Golem: He was stitched out of the body parts of multiple creatures. He has the head of a goblin, the ears of an elf, the arms of a bear, the legs of an insect, the feet of a gorilla, the wings of a bat and the tail of a crocodile.
  • Gentle Giant: He wouldn't hurt a fly out of his own volition.
  • Hulk Speak: Speaks like this.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: He's a flesh golem and a vampire all in one package. However, as he is too big and clumsy to bite necks to drink blood, he simply eats his victims whole instead.
  • Super Strength: He's the strongest character in the Nightshade Clan by far. As mentioned in his personal Tales of Champions, he managed to break a red wyvern's neck by strangling it.
  • Third-Person Person: Always refers to himself by his name.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Desperately wants to appease Nosfer, who he sees as his father, though the Ordnung considers him as little more than a lackey.
  • Wings Do Nothing: The bat wings on his back are way too small to be of any use.



Species: Half-dragon manticore
Alignment: Lawful Neutral

"Even our light will bring darkness if needed."

The mightiest war beast of the Nightshade Clan, Dornmuunon is Nosfer's greatest creation; by combining the souls of a Light Drake and a manticore, he created a vampiric monstrosity capable of harnessing the power of the light, which most vampires are unable to use.

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: When he attacked Umbral Refuge, the capital of the Derevar elves, during War of Vampires.
  • Breath Weapon: A laser of pure light.
  • Eye Scream: During his battle against Filonan and Daithelen during the attack of Umbral Refuge, Dornmuunon had his eye pierced by Filonan's spear, temporarily blinding him.
  • Giant Flyer: 40 meters long and able of flight, much to the terror of the elves he attacked during the events of War of Vampires.
  • Large and in Charge: Dornmuunon is the leader of the Clan's manticore lackeys, and he is by far the largest character in the faction.
  • Light 'em Up: Notably, one of the only vampires capable of using light magic.
  • Light Is Not Good: He is the only entity in the Nightshade Clan who can use light magic. And as seen during War of Vampires, he is not the nicest individual to be around.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: As the fusion of a manticore and a dragon, it is to be expected.
  • Our Dragons Are Different / Our Manticores Are Spinier: He is half-dragon, half-manticore, though he superficially resembles the latter more than the former.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: He is vampiric, despite his Light Drake heritage. As a light magic entity, he is immune to sunlight and light-based attacks, but in contrast takes increased damage from dark magic, the opposite of all other vampires.
  • Panthera Awesome: His overall appearance is that of a gigantic white lion with dragon scales.
  • Retcon: Dornmuunon was previously supposed to be the only living manticore of Koldenwelt. However, his creator scrapped his plans and instead allowed him to be reworked into a character of the Nightshade Clan.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After having one of his fangs broken and being heavily wounded by the Sovereign army's dark magic arrows in the attack of Umbral Refuge, Dornmuunon decided to retreat for finding the situation too humiliating.

Cult of the Eclipse

    Tibias Merrow 

Tibias Merrow, the Master Apostle

Species: Imperial human, unknown ethnicity
Alignment: Chaotic Evil

"Ah, poor Tibias Merrow. Once a mere skeleton servant of a necromancer. But his master was slain by paladins, and he was alone! But the whispers of Vargash reached his ear sockets, and then, he grew up to be a real man... bone."

Master Apostle of the Cult of the Eclipse and mortal champion of Vargash, Tibias Merrow is an undead skeleton of weird mannerisms but an absolutely psychotic mindset. Wishing nothing more than the complete domination of Koldenwelt, he has menaced the land for hundreds of years. Naturally a monstrous being, his nature as an undead - who are naturally incompatible with Vargash's magic - forces him to assume a 'normal' form when out of combat.

  • Arch-Enemy: Of Norrigan Sunseeker. The feeling is mutual.
  • Arc Villain: Of One Thousand Horns.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: During his everyday activities, such as causing mayhem and corrupting unwitting masses, he maintains a light-hearted and somewhat goofy disposition. However, when he decides to show his actual power, only a few can say they have survived to tell the tale.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: The second main antagonist of Doctrina Venefica, the first being Osvernal Eilenneim.
  • Body Horror: Assuming his true form reveals his bones are unnaturally long, while tentacles of bone marrow grow out of his spine in the vague form of wings. One tentacle in particular grows from within his skull, forcing itself out of his right eye socket.
  • Casting a Shadow: One of the mightiest users of abyssal magic, which is common dark magic tainted by the power of Ramainaualmari.
  • Dem Bones: He's a human skeleton animated by necromancy.
  • Dragon Rider: He rides on the back of Vilokrath, who's a Pus Dragon.
  • Dual Wielding: In his true state, his favored weapons are a pair of BFSs he swings about with wild abandon.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Started out as a simple farmer who was killed and reanimated by a necromancer to be a mere serf in his tower. However, when his master died, he wandered off and was eventually influenced by Vargash's whispers, leading the animated skeleton to gain a mind of its own and join the Cult of the Eclipse. Some years later, he became the leader of the religion of Vargash altogether.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: Has a pair of red lights as eyes.
  • Losing Your Head: As a skeleton, removing his skull from his neck doesn't particularly bother him, though his body becomes blind and distressed as a result. During The Goldhawk Chronicles, he suffered from this after being struck across the face by Jalaric Hathgar, which sent his head flying off.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: You might be interested in how a skeleton can have this kind of thing. The answer? Bone marrow tentacles.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He was the true master of Delmar Crowfeather during the events of Doctrina Venefica, using him to make a way for a future invasion on the elven capital of Purity's Apogee.
  • One-Winged Angel: An interesting case. The mighty monstrous form he takes during combat is his true appearance, not a transformation. However, he is forced into a weakened state in order to conserve his energies, due to Vargash's abyssal magic not working well with the undead, which is the form he is most often seen assuming.
  • Punny Name: He's a skeleton. Tibia is the name of the human shinbone. It also looks like his surname is "marrow", as in bone marrow, though a quick look will reveal it's actually written with an "e", which he apparently did intentionally to mess with people. Lampshaded by Xacutus during Darkest Before Dawn.
    Xacutus: What kind of NAME is that?! Should it not be MARROW?
    Tibias: No. Merrow. With an E.
    Xacutus: But you are NOT a mermaid.
  • Red Baron: The Demon of Visonia.
  • Sorcerous Overlord: A fearsome dark sorcerer and one of the contenders of main antagonist of the setting.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Would also try and corrupt a child with dark magic, as Khadya nearly suffered during The Goldhawk Chronicles.
  • Your Soul is Mine!: He can suck the souls out of those in his close proximity. He has been seen using this as a way to fuel the use of his true state.


Vilokrath, the Rotten

Species: Pus dragon
Alignment: Neutral Evil

"Your souls will drown... in the black oceans of Crystallis!"

The being titled "the Rotten" is a Pus dragon, a member of a loathsome species of dragon who are born diseased beyond imagining. Vilokrath is the mount and personal bodyguard of the Master Apostle, a task delivered to him by Vargash himself, and today he follows the orders of Tibias Merrow.

  • Black Eyes of Evil: As it's typical for a member of his species, Vilokrath's eyes are pitch black.
  • Breath Weapon: A blast of gross and sickening pus, which rots and decomposes flesh on top of possessing an unfathomable stench.
  • The Dragon: Literally and figuratively to Tibias Merrow. Vilokrath is tasked to be this to all Master Apostles.
  • Feel No Pain: As a Pus dragon, his diseased body suffered so much before birth that he no longer feels any pain. When Ennea Ignaura confronted him during Doctrina Venefica, she was unsure of whether her attacks had any effect on him, as he simply didn't react to them.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Pus dragons are a species of dragon who are covered in rotting, festering wounds since birth, which leads many of them to die before hatching - but those who do are born with complete immunity to pain.
  • Poisonous Person: Pus dragons are poison magic-based dragons, and Vilokrath is no exception.
  • Red Baron: The Rotten.

The Endless Host


Lich Lord Praetinnath

Species: Outworlder
Alignment: Lawful Evil

"Koldenwelt shall rot, and from its corpse, our dead homeworld shall be restored."

Once his race's greatest prodigy, perhaps the most skilled Magister in the entire Outworld, Praetinnath is now the Endless Host's enigmatic leader. Residing deep in the Serenity Woods, atop a throne of bones, Praetinnath observes Koldenwelt, plotting his next move. His goals are unknown, his purpose unclear, but it is known for sure that his sorcerous powers are a threat to the entire world.

  • Dem Bones: He's a massive skeletal figure.
  • Driven to Madness: Due to the nightmares he suffered which alerted him of the Outworld's end times, he became increasingly deranged until turning insane altogether.
  • The Ghost: Hasn't been featured in any stories so far.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: His equivalents of eyes are a pair of luminous green spheres.
  • Kill 'Em All: His endgame is to turn Koldenwelt into a dead wasteland, like what happened to the Outworld.
  • Large and in Charge: Towers nearly 8 meters in height, and he's the ruler of the Endless Host.
  • Necromancer: He was the one who turned the Outworlders into undead, including himself.
  • Our Liches Are Different: He did not become one by choice, but after the transformation, he's a fairly standard one, with great power over magic and a phylactery protecting him from a true death.
  • Sorcerous Overlord
  • The Stoic: Becoming undead has stripped him of his once noble emotions.


King-General Kimorgosa

Species: Outworlder
Alignment: Lawful Evil

"Insolent. Take a knee when your king speaks to you!"

Formerly an Outworlder of unnaturally massive size who led his armies by a combination of awe and fear, Kimorgosa (otherwise known as Kimorgos) was reduced to ashes alongside the rest of his race when they migrated to Koldenwelt. Unlike the rest of his people, he chose not not possess a corpse to interact with this new world, and instead possessed his own flame-powered suit of armor, turning the general into a juggernaut of flames who craves for nothing but the conquest of this new world.

  • Animated Armor: Upon becoming an undead spirit, he possessed his own suit of armor, causing it to become animated by nothing but flames, smoke and steam.
  • Blue Blood: He was a nobleman in life, which is where his prideful disposition stems from.
  • Decoy Leader: While his title is of king, the hierarchy of the Outworld doesn't work like you'd expect; an Outworld "king" is akin to a military general rather than the ruler of their people. It serves as a good way to hide Lich Lord Praetinnath's existence.
  • Expy: Of Wraith King in his first incarnations, though not so much after a number of retcons.
  • The Juggernaut: He is a nigh unstoppable force, possessing such endurance that not even a direct hit by a ballista bolt to the torso is enough to stop him on his tracks, only slow him down.
  • Large and in Charge: Even in life, he was noted for his giant size compared to his fellow Outworlders, which contributed to his position of general of their armies.
  • Playing with Fire: He has tremendous power over the arts of pyromancy, being shown wreathing his blade in flames, throwing fireballs from his hands and even launching fire beams from his helm's eye sockets.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Unlike most other undead Outworlders, Kimorgos is a wraith composed of fire.



Species: Outworld revenant
Alignment: Chaotic Evil

"The grave is a door / onto this new life; we / this energy / Endless Host"

Pyyls'as is the enigmatic and horrific advisor of Praetinnath and sometimes regarded as the Host's voice when the Lich Lord is not present. It is unknown whether Pyyls'as was pivotal in the transformation of the Serenity Empire, though now, it exists as a figure of unique nature within the Outworld itself. A being driven by a mad inclination for power, its position as the advisor to the Lich Lord guarantees Pyyls'as' role as a high-ranking figure in the Endless Host.

  • Body of Bodies: Appears to be a skeleton made out of various other skeletons, with most of its torso being made out of skulls.
  • Dem Bones: It's a massive creature made out of numerous skulls and bones.
  • The Ghost: Hasn't been featured in any stories so far.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has a total of ten arms.
  • Necromancer: Said to have been one before death.
  • Strange-Syntax Speaker: All of its sentences follow a syllabic structure of 6-6-4-3, often describing events rather than direct speech, of which higher members of the Endless Host usually find difficult to interpret.

Non-Affiliated Characters

    Drenar Mellowsun 

Drenar Mellowsun

Species: Hikamera elf
Alignment: Lawful Evil

"I'll make my point very clear for the leaders of the Nightshade Clan by taking the head of Varelos von Dalverat's precious thirdborn. It's a shame it has to be this way, for you would make a most formidable slave."

A Hikamera elf vampire of the demon-worshiping Bloodroot Clan, Drenar Mellowsun was one of the few vampires ever seen to wield the power of the light. In his possession, he had one of the legendary Aether Eemeralds, which he used in his attempt to destroy the Sanguine Estate and kill Dragostea Dalverat to assert his dominance over the Nightshade Clan.

  • Artifact of Doom: He had one of legendary Aether Emeralds in his possession, which allowed him to assume a superpowered form. After he died, the Emerald was kept by Yurthez Bertonius.
  • Big Bad: Of Red Harmony.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Introduced himself to Dragostea as a traveler honoured to make her acquaintance, before attempting to murder her and all in her brothel.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His Aether Emerald turned out to be his downfall after Dragostea took possession of it and assumed an Aether state of her own.
  • Killed Off for Real: After being beaten into a pulp by an Aether-empowered Dragostea, she bit through his torso and chomped his heart right off, ending his life.
  • Light 'em Up: A rare vampire user of light magic, which was only possible thanks to his Hikamera heritage.
  • Light Is Not Good: In fact, light can be very evil.
  • No-Sell: In his Aether state, he was able to endure a direct hit from the Coronaira Whip and suffer no damage from it.
  • Our Angels Are Different: His transformation after using the power of his Aether Emerald resembled an elven angel with a herculean build.
  • Winged Humanoid: In his Aether state, he had a pair of feathered, angelic wings.
