Other Characters



Played By: Judi Dench

"In normal times, evil would be fought with good. But in times like these, well, it should be fought by another kind of evil."

A member of a race known as Elementals, whose religion is based around the Balance of the universe. They actively seek to keep this balance, and their ability to use numbers and equations to calculate odds is so accurate that to others it closely resembles foretelling and prophecy.

  • Miss Exposition: Aereon mainly hangs around to spill exposition about plot developments.

    Crematoria Slam Facility 

Prison guards

"You know the rule. They're not dead if they're still on the books."
- Smirnov

The staff of the Crematoria triple maximum security prison, an underground facility on a planet with drastic temperature differences during its day cycle.

  • Commander Contrarian: Smirnov when the boss orders him to climb up a hatch and scout for Riddick.
    Smirnov: Because Anatoli says so?
    Vasilev: Because his nose says so.
  • Husky Russkie: Most of them have Russian-sounding names: Vasilev, Petrov, Yakovlev, Kuznetsov and so on.
  • The Nose Knows: Anatoli Petrov has a Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane knack for sniffing out trouble. At first he just warns his boss against taking Riddick into the prison. Later he sniffs the air while he and the others are running to the hangar through an underground passageway, because he sensed Riddick and co. doing the same over the surface.
  • Pervy Patdown: Grigorev tries this on Kyra when he, Smirnov and another guard corner her. He gets a heel-blade in his crotch.
  • Wardens Are Evil: All of them are thugs.

Although arrested for 23 separate infractions, from extortion to murder, he continued to evade convicted. He was finally brought in the Crematoria Slam Facility for vehicular manslaughter.

  • Hoist Hero over Head: Vaako lifts the Guv over his head, and then brings him down on his knee, breaking his back.
