Important N.P.Cs

Characters that cannot be apped by any user. They usually hold a bit of importance to the forum's main plot and can only be briefly played by admins.
"I'm trying to save everyone on Li in one fell swoop. What will destroying this ship truly do for you all? Doom us to suffer in this war for another 7 years!"
The speedy blue hedgehog, and one of the leaders of the Life Sphere. Unlike Mario or Samus, Sonic wants to leave Li as soon as possible, which he plans to do with his pet project, the gunship Absolution.

During the Absolution site-wide event, it's revealed that Sonic was really being impersonated by Mephiles the Dark, who was seeking to use the gunship to revive Iblis and destroy Li.

  • Fallen Hero: Pretty much, though it's unknown whether or not he's doing it because he's gone bonkers or he's being corrupted by the Starvia. Ultimately subverted, as Absolute Confrontation revealed the blue blur was never around to begin with.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He was already acting pretty out of it already, but the events leading to the site mission Absolution show that he's dead serious about not only leaving Li but destroying it as well.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gets cut clean in half by a super-powered Arle's Ice Storm during Absolute Confrontation. He recovers from it and then decides to return the favor by impaling Samus a few moments later.
  • Me's a Crowd: Mephiles can create doubles of himself, which explains the presence of three different "Sonics" in each Absolute thread.
  • Mineral MacGuffin: He has the seven Chaos Emeralds, which transform him into Super Sonic for his Ultimate Attack. In the Absolute Fighting and Absolute Exploration threads, he was revealed to also have the gems from Sonic 2006 and the Seven World Rings from Sonic and the Secret Rings.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: You know something is wrong when Sonic decides to bail out of the planet instead of trying to save it. And why he is so sinister is because Sonic is actually Mephiles. The actual Sonic wasn't even present.
  • Super Speed: He wouldn't be Sonic without it.
  • Super Mode: Super Sonic. In this mode, Sonic's completely invincible for a limited amount of time and can deal some serious damage.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Despite his more questionable decisions, he has people who sympathize with his cause and voluntarily join him.
  • You Remind Me of X: Not said directly to the person in question, but in Absolute Fighting, he comments on how E.Gadd reminds him a lot of Eggman.

Player Characters

These are characters that are played by the site's users.
"I hope you're ready for a serving of my queenly fists!"
The self-proclaimed Fighting Queen, originating from the Madou Monogatari series. In a world where most of its inhabitants know some sort of magic, Rulue’s one of the few who can’t use it, so she resorted to physical attacks.

    Schezo Wegey
"Know the power of the Areiado!"
The Dark Wizard, originating from the Madou Monogatari series. Once a student of an ages-past magic school, a fateful day led him to succeeding the title of Dark Wizard from Rune Lord. While he is a magician first, he is skilled in swordplay as well.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Once had one in Raffina, but the phase passed rather quickly. Even then, it's Downplayed in that Raffina believed he was a prince worth pursuing.
  • Anti-Hero: Not exactly the most pleasant person to be around, but he's a known hero around the Life Sphere due to his involvement in First to Fall, Last to Lead and Absolution.
  • Berserk Button: Don't call him a pervert or creeper. Still doesn't like it.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: The Tsukkomi to Lemres, although Lemres is far from being an idiot.
  • Born Unlucky: For some reason Schezo has a knack for being unlucky, bumbling in basic tasks such as evading attacks and avoiding ambushes. He even rode a dragon backwards when whisked away for a quick escape.
  • Brutal Honesty: Schezo is not one to mince words, and, if not muddled with bad wording, can be rather harsh at times.
  • Calling Your Attacks: As a mage, this is a given.
  • Cat Boy: Courtesy of the Catmancer Asterisk. It even lets him summon cats to fight alongside with, and even talk with them!
  • Character Development: From selfish loner to reliable ally. That still hasn't fixed his occasional vocabulary screw-ups.
  • Cuteness Proximity: He keeps a lid on it (to varying success), but he still loves cute things.
  • Damager, Healer, Tank: Damager, with a dash of debilitator. He can inflict Standard Status Effects, ranging from suppressing healing magic, to crippling enemy defenses.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Unnerving, yes, but is on the side of good here. Heck, he's one of the heroes in First to Fall, Last to Lead.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Still a little chilly, but is not nearly as distant as he once was.
  • Desperately Craves Affection: Contrary to what his friends are led to believe, he doesn't mind the occasional affectionate gestures...but doesn't want to express it, as it's unlike the image he puts up. Being alone for nearly two centuries made him one touch-starved mage.
  • Eye Scream: Was victim to a vicious pecking from a Snagret, though he has more or less recovered from it.
  • Gratuitous Ninja: Has access to a ninja transformation.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: An extreme version with Arle. Arle is 16, Schezo is 180, but they've grown to be good friends over time.
  • Loner-Turned-Friend: What he's developed into over time, but still defensively ebbs between the spectrum. There are times where he doesn't feel obliged to call anyone his friends, especially Arle who he antagonized for as long as he remembered and wants to turn things around.
  • Magic Knight: He's a mage first, but he has swordsmanship under his belt.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: His heroism after Absolution ended up painting a big target on him for the Absolutionists, leading to an attempted assassination in broad daylight.
  • Power Parasite: One of his special abilities is to steal magic. It has seen some pragmatic uses amidst battle to usurp someone's magic powers to empower his.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's 180. Nowhere close to the actual gods and demons' age around the Life Sphere, but rather impressive for someone that's still human.
  • Scars Are Forever: His clothes cover them up, but he has one wrapped around his neck prior to entering Li, and his left arm is covered in them after the dollhouse incident.
  • Stepford Smiler: As much as he puts up a dignified front, it's one giant facade to make himself believe he's living. After having pushed aside his pursuits for Arle's magic, he firmly believes he just exists. On top of that, he has difficulty making friends, wanting to push them away to avoid the pain of outliving them, leaving him with not many people to confide with.
  • That Came Out Wrong: If there's one constant in him, it's his occasional verbal blunders. It doesn't happen on a regular basis (or even for comedy), but his vocabulary still raises some eyebrows.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Freezing cold places. Being trapped in a cold storage freezer left a bad scar on him, figuratively and literally.
