The Hunter-Gratzner

    open/close all folders 



Greg Owens

Played By: Simon Burke

A co-pilot of Fry's, who tried to stop Fry from dumping the passengers to certain death.



Carolyn Fry
Played By: Radha Mitchell

"I said I'd die for them, not you!"

A docking pilot for the Hunter-Gratzner and usually transports civilians and cargo with her crew for a charge, in a form of space transportation. She had an unmoral and unethical moment with dropping the passenger section to save herself, indicating she is not a trustful person.

  • Morality Pet: Riddick develops a soft spot for her, which gradually becomes devotion.
  • Not So Different: The film stresses that her actions were no different from Riddick's. She was just trying to survive tricky situations, with the ruthless determination necessary.
  • Last-Name Basis: She's only called 'Carolyn' during particularly tense moments.
  • Redemption Equals Death: She dies thanks to completely abandoning her preoccupation with survival and coming back for everyone in the group, Riddick included.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She gradually starts taking more initiative and organising the group to survive



Kyra/Jack B. Badd
"Where the hell can I get eyes like that?"
Played By: Rhiana Griffith & Alexa Davalos

A young girl who was travelling on a distant planet for unknown reasons, and she was posing as a boy named Jack to avoid any suspicion.

  • Action Girl: Not at first. She starts the transition into an Action Survivor in Dark Fury, and completes it while in jail.
  • Bifauxnen: She was rather adorable while presenting as male.
  • Broken Bird: Jack's life after running away is one tragedy after another, which results in her acquirement of a thick set of Jade-Colored Glasses (as well as an early death).
  • Broken Pedestal: She loses faith after being abandoned by Riddick.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Has a knife in the heel of her boot for delivering painful mule-kicks, as well as a sharpened bit of metal she keeps in her mouth in case her arms and legs get pinned. Makes sense considering she's spent years in what is apparently a unisex prison.
  • Final Girl: In Pitch Black, at least. Things don't go so well in the sequel.
  • Gaining the Will to Kill: She kills for the first time defending Riddick from Antonia. It's implied this is what prompts Riddick to abandon her as he didn't want her to turn out like him.
  • Hartman Hips: The cartoon uses this to mark her as female, having her otherwise completely devoid of anatomical or cultural gender markers.
  • Hero-Worshipper: She almost immediately imprints on Riddick when she meets him as a child. It's implied at the end of Dark Fury that Riddick abandoned her to keep her from becoming like him.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: Arguably her fatal flaw.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Jack's design for the cartoon looks distinctly more like Rhiana Griffith than Alexa Davalos, in spite of having been made to bridge the gap.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Just as she overcomes her mental conditioning.
  • Knife Nut: Likely a combination of hero worship as well as Riddicks's direct influence. Kyra makes up the difference in size by carrying many more shivs, to the point of being literally armed to the teeth.
  • Morality Pet: One for Riddick, who surprisingly feels remorse over abandoning her.
  • The Runaway: Although Jack never fully reveals her reasons, her wish to imitate Riddick indicates she likely thirsted for adventure.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Kyra is far more conventionally feminine than teenage Jack.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: She presents as male for her safety when she runs away from home, but she doesn't bother while in a predominantly male prison.
  • Sudden Name Change: Is called "Jack" in Pitch Black but suddenly uses the feminine name "Kyra" in The Chronicles of Riddick and is only ever referred to as such after the initial clarification.
  • Tagalong Kid: She doesn't have many useful skills in Pitch Black, and has little to do before her reveal.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Jack always had an edge, but she was mostly innocent and hopeful in Pitch Black. Spending years in a prison in intensely harsh conditions removed that element of her personality.


Abu "Imam" al-Walid
Played By: Keith David

"There is my God, Mr Riddick."

A Muslim preacher who was travelling to New Mecca for the annual preaching, and was stranded with others when the ship crashed. He is travelling with three young boys.

  • Badass Preacher: Confronted Riddick on his own more than once when he had no guarantee that Riddick wouldn't just kill him.


Paris P Ogilvie

Played By: Lewis Fitzgerald

"Amazing how you can do without the essentials of life, so long as you have the little luxuries."

An intergalactic arts dealer selling weaponry and arts from Earth and other planets. He also provided the others with alcohol.

  • Face Death with Dignity: Mortally wounded and surrounded in the dark, he only laments his fate briefly before taking one last drink.


Sharon ‘Shazza’ Montgomery

Played By: Claudia Black

A free settler who was travelling across the universe looking for a place to settle.


John ‘Zeke’ Ezekiel

Played By: John Moore

A free settler along with Shazza and looking for a home.

  • Trigger Happy: Zeke ends up killing a surviving passenger because he was too quick on the draw, thinking the man was Riddick without even seeing his face.

How well does it match the trope?
