    The Peacemakers (Devil's Ascent) 

Thor Odinson

Imperialdramon Paladin Mode

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Svarog Gilgamesh

Apollomon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Michael Ha'Yisrael

MagnaAngemon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Samael Cain

Beelzemon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Bedivere Stormheart

Slayerdramon

Tropes:

  • Dual Wielding: He can split his Fragarach into twin swords now, and uses this ability a lot.
  • Jerkass: To the extreme. Caradoc often serves as an Acceptable Target due to thick-headed dedication to heroism and utterly horrific failures. Even if Bedivere seems to love persisting in crossing the line.
  • Kick the Dog: His own sister, nonetheless. "Farewell, and good riddance".
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: To Caradoc. It's rather horrible to read, mainly because Caradoc's not fighting back.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass
  • The Unfettered
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He's well on his way to this, as shown by his now-common creed of there being no such thing as 'right'. He's also stated he'll do what it takes to stop Mephistopheles.
  • You Have Failed Me: He adopts this attitude with Caradoc, Guinier, Barachiel and Azur after their search for Hadrael caused them to be absent when Mephistopheles launched a devastating attack on Anatolia, which was only stopped by Loki showing true colours as Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass to a high degree.

Caradoc Stern

Valkyrimon

'I've come to realise that there are prices not worth paying. I will not give up those precious things for anything. And even if I must die to protect those things, I will gladly defend those I truly love.'

Tropes:

  • A Friend in Need: Caradoc is this to Barachiel many times and vice versa.
  • The Atoner: Deconstructed. Caradoc contually keeps blaming himself for events like the destruction of the Chessmon Kingdom because atoning is all he knows, to the point that he's willing to take on the conditions of a demon's deal because he percieves it as atoning for his sins. Ultimately his atonement turns to selfishness even though he percieves it as heroism, causing him to ignore the effects his actions have on his loved ones.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: With his Despair
  • Berserk Button: The mention of his father is a mild one. But for the sake of your well-being, don't ever even imply he's a traitor. Or threaten Guinier.
  • Chew Toy: At first all he wants is to do the right thing, but his efforts lead to the destruction of a kingdom and the deaths of thousands.
  • Custom Uniform: He still wears his black and silver attire from UC.
  • Deconstruction: He suffered a painful one of his 'heroic' acts and their motives. Rather than the shining white knight hero he thought himself to be, Barachiel and Guinier brought him down to earth with the revelation he was obsessively pursuing the righteous actions out of self-gratification and the lasting need to try and heal his broken soul following his abusive, painful childhood.
  • Deal with the Devil: He made a deal with a demon, his soul for the ability to reach and save Hadrael.
  • The Fettered
  • Freudian Excuse: Caradoc has a variety of issues stemming from his childhood, particularly his father's abuse and losing his mother. These issues play into his guilt complex, Chronic Hero Syndrome and status as The Atoner.
  • Genre Blind: Doing heroic things, despite having twice be shown that acting heroically tends to play right into Mephistopheles' hands.
  • The Hero: How he sees himself, and he acts in a more heroic manner than most of the other Peacemakers. Given the setting, though, this is not actually a good thing. Accidentally deconstructed by Barachiel, and then intentionally so by Guinier, when they make Caradoc realize that despite his apparent heroism, truthfully he's only acting to try and fill the void left in his heart due to his father's abusive treatment and the loss of his mother.
  • Heroic Blue Screen of Death: After Barachiel and Guinier's What the Hell, Hero?, all he can do is kneel there, stunned.
    • Suffers a second one during the battle with his Despair.
  • The Lancer: To Bedivere, though ironically their stances are swapped from Unholy Crusade.
  • Last Day to Live: Due to his Deal with the Devil, this is but a year away, and he knows it.
  • Kill It with Fire: His Phoenixmon form revolves around this.
  • Parental Abandonment: By his mother, though not by her choice. However, he feels this is his fault for not coping with his father's outrageous demands, which plays into his need to atone for everything.
  • Shout-Out: Sort of. He has an I-Pod given to him by a human Tamer, which contains a plethora of Owl City songs. Word of God is that this is personal preference and he likes Owl City songs a lot.
  • Time-Delayed Death: Effectively. He has one year before his soul is taken, as per the terms of his Deal with the Devil.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Multiple times. Firstly in an absolutely epic speech from Balthory, during which she baits him to kill her, denounces him for being so utterly unaccepting of her actions and almost pulls what would have been a fatal blow if she hadn't stopped. Then done far more painfully and personally by Barachiel and Guinier over the Deal with the Devil, in which they deconstruct his 'heroic' actions as attempts to fill in the hole in his heart left by his painful childhood, and show how despite what he believes, his actions are incredibly painful for them to bear.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Due to the Deal with the Devil, he has one year.

Guinier Stormheart

Ulforce Veedramon

Tropes:

  • Action Girl: Much more so this time around, standing up to Victor of the Cambion alone and generally pulling off far-more impressive stuff. When she fails, generally everyone else fails too.
  • Broken Bird: Showing signs of this due to the revelation of Caradoc's Deal with the Devil, and the way he played off the fact that his actions hurt her as well as himself.
  • Official Couple: With Caradoc. Currently in jeopardy due to general thick-headedness and selfishness on Caradoc's part.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Right off the back of Barachiel's, she delivers a scathing one to Caradoc.

Vritra Ahi

Burning Greymon

Tropes:

  • A God Am I: She's a goddess of wildfire, drought and searing heat. Not that this needs announcing.
  • Combat Pragmatist: To a degree. Her most notable tactic in prolonged fights is to radiate heat. Does nothing to her, tires most opponents. Doesn't work well on other fire-users though.
  • Hot Wings: Her wings in Burning Greymon form are made of flames.
  • Jerkass: Though she's gotten a little better as of late.
  • Kill It with Fire: Oh, so very much. She never fights without using at least one fire-based attack or embellishing an attack with flames.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Reincarnation: In keeping with the source mythology, Vritra is a reincarnation of the original, who was so terrible he was able to bring a drought to the entire world. Whether his reincarnated form will go the same way is unclear.
  • Wolverine Claws: The Dramon Destroyers in her War Greymon X form.
  • Wreathed in Flames: Her typical trick involves this. Aside from being useful for attacks, it also emits heat, which tires her opponents.

Gigas Kranatos

Hercules Kabuterimon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Nocchi Marion

Puppetmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Sha Wujing

Shawjamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Ivy Tifaret/Kranatos

Lilymon X

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Tyr Koenig

Victory Greymon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Kheprius "Khep" Aeolus

Grandis Kuwagamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • The Atoner
  • Be All My Sins Remembered: More notable than in Unholy Crusade. Khep expressely talks about this with Samael when they're talking in a bar.
  • Blood Knight
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Played with. Kheprius admits to himself that he doesn't understand Tiwaz's Chronic Hero Syndrome, but he is willing to perform a Heroic Sacrifice to save hundreds of lives from War (who made a deal with him supposedly trading Kheprius' life for hundreds of Anatolian civilians that were at his mercy) because Kheprius understood the pain and fear that they felt due to his Dark and Troubled Past.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: He and Barachiel.
  • Tsundere: Type A. He's a jerk to pretty much everybody, but he can be very caring to those he's close to, particularly Barachiel, Pyra and Gigas. Though sometimes his Jerkass Facade will be up.

Pyra Torren

Paildramon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Gunnar Cyndar

Shine Greymon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Barachiel Aker/ Terrak Aeolus

Tiger Vespamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • A Friend in Need: Barachiel is this to Caradoc many times and vice versa.
  • Aloof Big Brother: He's this to Khep, though with them being twins, the "big" part is a matter of debate between them.
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Bishounen Line: Goes from a humanoid bug digimon to a much more human-looking angel.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He becomes The Berserker after Hadrael dies in his arms, charging the enemy without a weapon.
  • Celibate Hero
  • Church Militant
  • Determinator
  • Dissonant Serenity: Invokes this a lot, particularly when after/nearing his digivolution.
  • Doomed Hometown: Twice over...
  • Friendless Background: Barachiel didn't have any friends outside the members of the mission he was raised in, which is partially the reason why he's protective of Caradoc.
  • Humble Hero
  • Meaningful Name/Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Barachiel gave himself the name "Barachiel Aker" sometime after Hadrael Aker's adoption of him. 'Barachiel' is the name of one of the seven archangels of Eastern Orthodox Christianity and is the chief of guardian angels (which is something Barachiel tries to be for the weak in Devil's Ascent.) His last name, 'Aker' actually has two meanings. Aker is mentioned in the 'Greek Apocalypse of Ezra' and the name of one of the nine angels who will govern "at the end of the world". Aker is also a god from Egyptian mythology and was the deification of the horizon. Since the horizon was where night becomes day, Aker is sometimes said to guard the entrance and exit to the underworld, opening the gates to allow the sun to pass through and for the dead to enter. This also ties in with his brother Kheprius' meaningful name, which is derived from Khepri, who was a solar deity that was said to continually push the sun into and out of the underworld, to explain where the sun goes at night. Khepri is also associated with rebirth, renewal and resurrection, which are themes that play important roles for both Kheprius and Barachiel. Terrak's rebirth into Barachiel as he took on a completely new and changed lifestyle is the most notable, so far. Also there's a bonus of Aker being a shout out to Graham Aker of Mobile Suit Gundam 00, who undergoes a sort of rebirth, is an Ascended Fanboy, immerses himself in the ways of a different lifestyle and culture, and becomes obsessed with defeating a particular opponent. Sound familiar?
  • Odd Friendship: With Caradoc. Also with Gunnar.
  • The Paladin
  • Power Gives You Wings: Slash Angemon
  • Our Angels Are Different: Slash Angemon
  • Raised By Angels
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Against Mephistopheles, though he prioritizes Hadrael's safety and the safety of his friends over revenge. After Hadrael's death, he starts to prioritize revenge over everything else.
  • Scarf Of Ass Kicking
  • Seven Heavenly Virtues: Barachiel tries to have all of these and succeeds for the most part... Patience, not so much.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: He and Kheprius.
  • The Stoic
    • Not So Stoic: This happens quickly due to his mission being destroyed in front of him and his mentor/adoptive father being captured not to mention the provoking of others, especially Kheprius. It's especially evident during Hadrael's death scene, with Barachiel reverting back to the way he was when he was told his parents and brother were dead.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality
  • Tranquil Fury: It gets worse as time goes on, to the point where he seems like an emotionless killer.
  • Tsundere: Type B. A non romantic version, obviously. He's nice and caring to pretty much everybody with the exception of Kheprius, who he can't stand.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Patience is the one Seven Heavenly Virtues that Barachiel has trouble with.
  • Upbringing Makes the Hero: This is what puts him at odds with his long lost brother.
  • Warrior Monk
  • What the Hell, Hero?: To Caradoc after Caradoc makes a deal with a demon to find Hadrael.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has blue hair in his new Slash Angemon form.

Azur Schattenlicht

Were Garurumon

Tropes:

  • Angsty Surviving Twin
  • Cool Sword: He wields one of Fenrir's Sharpness Claymores, reformated into a katana.
  • Tsundere: Type A. He seems to be this way towards Pyra, reserving his soft side only for her.
  • Mind Rape: Whatever happened when he got captured, he came out of it so broken he ran from his own friends and the woman he loves.
  • My Greatest Failure: Not being able to save Dunk.

Shoon Alryght

Mamemon X

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Aeria D'Sinclair

War Greymon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Cresil Vaynard deis Los-Norgaine

Astamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Duo Greyclaw

Gaiomon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Deal with the Devil: Ironically, given the theme of the RPG, not with a demon. He made a deal with the Reaper, but we still aren't sure what exactly the Reaper's terms were, or how they'll be fulfilled.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: He even says it word-for-word before going Reapermon against Nekron.
  • Everything's Better with Samurai: Definitely. Duo is fairly awesome, and is one of the best Peacemakers.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: The Reaper is apparently this. It depends on how much control Duo really has over his Reapermon form. Not helped by how dark he sounds even when he IS in control, as shown by the Nekron fight.

Lucia Almehada

Minervamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Justin Wright

Super Starmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Kole Sterj

Piedmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Dual Wielding: Quadruple wielding, actually, in his Piedmon form. To be fair he wields two of the swords telekinetically.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Any time he evolves into Apocalymon, given what the last Apocalymon was like.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: Kole has an Apocalymon sealed in his head, which definitely seems to have its own agenda.

Tia Persia

Persiamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Hira Azu

Mihiramon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

     Allies 

Galic Lupociore

Mach Gaogamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Handicapped Badass: He's deaf in one ear and one of his arms is paralyzed due to his overuse of Burst Mode during Unholy Crusade's final battle.

Dhazbog Ullr

Emperor Greymon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Tropes:

Hadrael Aker

Angemon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Loki

Merukimon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Fighting a Shadow: Uses this to render Mephisto vulnerable to a silencing spell which stops the demon using magic.
  • Light 'em Up: Seven Suns of Balthakk
  • Story-Breaker Power: Manages to stop Mephisto's minions and nearly defeat the man himself with ease. This is why Mephisto realized he had to remove the gods, and proceeded to do so.
  • Trickster Archetype
  • Troll: His trickster-demonstrating card trick was almost certainly done with at least some intent to annoy those involved. Most of them aren't amused.

Sir Constantine

Saint Templarmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Despair Event Horizon: The slaughtering of his templar knights triggered this, causing him to break down in Hadrael's mission.
  • Driven to Suicide: He manages to fight against the stipulations of his deal in order to kill himself so that he wouldn't desecrate Hadrael's mission.
  • Heroic Wannabe: The reason for his deal with Mephistopheles was that he wanted to be a Royal Knight.
  • Heroic Willpower: The reason he was able to stop himself killing Hadrael's disciples, and ultimately why he killed himself.
  • Knight Templar

Sir Hector

Gallantmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Sir Percival

Magnamon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Character Death
  • Beyond the Impossible: Justified. He's the knight of miracles so he effectively does what should be impossible. Too bad one of the seals is the breaking of a miracle.
  • Fighting a Shadow: At one point he thinks he's killed Mephistopheles, but it was an illusion.
  • Light 'em Up: His power is light based.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: He has the Divine Protection variant due to the Power of Miracles, whenever his body glows golden.

Sir Pelleas

Albiomon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Deal with the Devil: To the shock of everyone. Like Constantine, he made a deal with Mephistopheles.

Bedrawd Stormheart

Dorbickmon

Tropes:

Advertisement:

     Mephistopheles and his minions 

Mephistopheles

Mephistomon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Attention Whore: Oddly. He pretty much wants the Peacemakers around to see what he's up to, which is why he keeps choosing to break seals with flashy, obvious effects. He even comments positively about Caradoc and company witnessing Hadrael's death.
  • Casting a Shadow: Most of the magic he shows off is pretty dark-themed.
  • Flaw Exploitation: A trademark of Mephistopheles.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Over, and over, and over. It's like he only makes deals so he can manipulate them for seal-breaking down the line.
    • Thoroughly cemented by the entire masterful trick involving the 'Innocents'
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Squishy Wizard: He's not much of a fighter without magic to help, as Loki and Svarog have shown. This is why he relies on his minions.

Marcus Starthorne

Dark Super Starmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Damien Ghostrider

Skull Meramon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Sigma-17

Andromon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

The Cambion/ Digidestined

Humans with Biomerge capabilities

Seven humans chosen by Mephistopheles who serve him for initially unknown reasons. It is later revealed that Mephistopheles saved them from almost certainly fatal circumstances in exchange for their loyalty, and gave them the power to Biomerge with their partners, making the Cambion the origin of Biomerge Digivolution. It is later revealed that the Cambion are the true Digidestined, after they are marked as such by the seven greatest angels, releasing them from Mephistopheles' control. They fight alongside the Peacemakers to prevent the breaking of the final seal, but due to a misunderstanding after the Digidestined realize Mephistopheles' latest trick, end up fighting their allies. Five of them are left powerless after the 'Innocents' destroy their partners, removing the Digidestined from the fight.

Tropes:

Count Vlad Tepes Dracula

Myotismon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Nebiros

Beetlemon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Tropes:

     The Four Horsemen 

War

Marsmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Conquest

Imperialdramon Paladin Mode

For I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror! Bent. On. Conquest!

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Famine

Dynasmon X

For I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider held a pair of scales, and he rode into the Land of Plenty! And great was this rider's hunger, for he was hunger!

Tropes:

  • Catch-Phrase: "I'm so hungry".
  • Crash-Into Hello: A nasty version, he introduces himself by smashing his way through the Peacemakers, ending by hammering Duo into the mountainside as Mephistopheles announces who it is.
  • Demonic Possession: Though his host submitted to it willingly.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Because he is the incarnation of Famine, he's willing to eat anything. At one point he's actually chewing on Gigas' face!
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Kept hidden for all of three seconds, he's actually Duo's father, who accepted becoming Famine by choice.
  • Super Strength: Due to being a Dynasmon X, primarily.

Pestilence

Vikemon

I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider was given a bow, and he rode out as a bringer of disease and pestilence!

Tropes:

Death

Anubismon

For I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death! And Hell was following close behind!

Tropes:

     Other 

Elizabeth Balthory

Queen Chessmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Killed Off for Real
  • Meaningful Name: Named for the actual Elizabeth Balthory, who was just as sinister if rumours of the time are to believed. A subversion because this Balthory was truthfully a compassionate, if determined queen who wanted nothing more than the best for her home.
  • Prophetic Name: Subverted. She doesn't turn out to be as nearly as bad as the real life one.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She made a deal with Mephistopheles, but only did it because she truly wanted to change the pointless and bloody state of affairs in the Chessmon Kingdom. Unfortunately, Caradoc only caught the 'Extremist'.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She gives Caradoc a fairly epic one while pretty much goading him to killing her. In hindsight, it's enough to make this troper feel terrible about having Caradoc grill her so much.

Johann Faust

Pawn Chessmon/Phelesmon

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

  • Beware the Silly Ones: At first, Johann comes off as a laughable, ineffective, clumsy bodyguard to Queen Balthory, then we find out he's been manipulating her this whole time and actually has a stronger form as Phelesmon.
  • Bodyguard Betrayal: Johann turns out to have made a deal with Mephistopheles in exchange for becoming king of the new Chess Kingdom and taking Balthory as his queen.
  • Bodyguard Crush: A twisted version seeing as Johann is willing to kill a hundred Pawn Chessmon under Mephistopheles' orders in order to make Elizabeth Balthory his queen.
  • Meaningful Name

Ilyasviel Stern

Silphymon

Tropes:

Milleniummon

Milleniummon

Tropes:

  • Eldritch Abomination: Before it even appears it's described as the thing that made all of Creation sick.
  • The Juggernaut: Let me clarify, in the backstory, this thing rampaged across the world, taking the attacks of the Olympians, all the mortal heroes, and the fricking Great Ten. What did all of these do? Absolutely nothing.
  • Oh, Crap!: The reaction it incites when it's found out that Mephistopheles is trying to bring it back.
  • What an Idiot!: Mephistopheles, just for trying to revive the thing... when the ones who put it down last time are gone. Sure, he's got a plan to control it... but what if said plan goes wrong?

Deus Ex Machina Entity

?

Tropes:

  • Deus ex Machina: To clarify, this thing pulls Milleniummon back into Nothingness, and with the above boast, proceeds to rip Thor and Svarog free of Conquest and War... without showing itself.
  • The Faceless: Let us clarify, nothing, nothing at all is seen of this thing.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: We know nothing of this entity, its power, or why it chose to intervene. All we know is that it did.
