Introduced in Castle Wolfenstein

     Allied Soldier 
This unnamed American operative is the original protagonist of the Wolfenstein series, starring in Castle Wolfenstein and its direct sequel, Beyond Castle Wolfenstein. In 1943, he was captured by Nazi forces on a mission, and brought to Castle Wolfenstein. Using a Mauser pistol given to him by a dying cellmate, he manages to sneak his way out of the stronghold with the plans to Operation Rheingold. Later in 1944, he is sent to infiltrate Adolf Hitler's bunker to assassinate him with a bomb placed outside his meeting room.

Introduced in Wolfenstein: The New Order

     Roman and Olenka Targonski 

Anya Oliwa's grandparents.

  • Battle Couple: They each take turns blowing a Nazi away with a double-barrel shotgun.
  • If You Ever Do Anything to Hurt Her...: Roman tells B.J. as such concerning Anya. B.J. just simply nods his head.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Downplayed but still impressive for an elderly woman. While driving through a Nazi checkpoint, Olenka shoots a double barrel shotgun out the window of a moving car and nails a Nazi that had just opened a door a good distance away from the car.
    B.J.: She's got good aim for an old dame.
  • Mr. Exposition: They bring B.J. up to speed on the horrifying fact that while he was in a coma, the Nazis pretty much took over the whole world.
  • Never Mess with Granny: They really don't like Nazis.
  • Surprisingly Good English: Not perfect but entirely understandable, which is impressive given that they live in Poland in a version of history where English is being phased out even in English speaking countries. Olenka even corrects the more worldly Anya's English at one point.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: They vanish from the plot after getting B.J. and Anya on to the train in New Order and we never get any information as to what happened to them next.

Introduced in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

    Zofia Blazkowicz 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zofia_blazkowicz_wolfenstein_ii_the_new_colossus_725.jpg
B.J.'s beloved mother, who did her best to raise her son to become a kind man despite her husband's toxic influence.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: She's long dead by the time of the game (though BJ doesn't know it), and she's portrayed as a pure, innocent, loving mother.
  • Empty Nest: BJ running away to join the army broke her heart if Rip's account of things can be trusted.
  • Good Parents: She was kind, loving, and supportive of BJ growing up.
  • House Wife: Not that she doesn't work hard, despite what her husband says.
  • Jewish Mother: Subverted. Although she is Jewish, she acts nothing like the stereotype.
  • Killed Offscreen: She dies in a concentration camp not long after B.J. returns to his old home.
  • Mama Bear: Has the attitude of one, but given that her husband is twice her size, she can't stop him, just stand up to him.
  • Messianic Archetype: She symbolizes a guardian angel in some ways. She was a loving, caring, gentle, and compassionate woman, even despite the abusive relationship with her husband, whose cruelty she was always trying to protect her son from. Her love and compassion were passed onto Billy, who showed this to anyone who was an ally or victim of abuse; an example is Sigrun Engel, a young girl who was abused by her mother, Irene. BJ even associates her with Heaven.
  • Nice Girl: A kind soul, and a loving mother to BJ.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Her own husband sells her out to the Nazis for money, and because she called him out on being a bad businessman. It's revealed she died in a concentration camp.
  • Women Are Wiser: She is much more level-headed than her Hair-Trigger Temper husband, and she lets Rip have it for losing all the money her family invested in his so-called business, and that she works just as hard as he does despite his claims otherwise. In a sure sign of mental stability, She also doesn't abuse her spouse and son, unlike him.

    Billie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/billie_wolfenstein_ii_the_new_colossus_484.jpg
A girl B.J. met in his childhood, who he quickly befriended despite his father forbidding him from speaking to blacks.
  • Light Is Good: She wears a white dress, and is a very kind and empathetic girl.
  • Morality Chain: Her friendship with B.J. was what helped him steered away from his father's racism and lack of empathy; he was sadistically watching a rat getting drowned due to it being vermin, but saved it because Billie was begging him in a distressed manner.
  • One-Steve Limit: Subverted. This Billie is spelled with a feminine "IE" while our protagonist uses the masculine letter "Y".
  • Puppy Love: Confesses to having a crush on B.J. It's left ambiguous if he returned it.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She only appears in B.J.'s flashbacks and her current whereabouts are unknown in The New Colossus. Her friendship with B.J. helped steer the latter's morality in the right direction, despite his father's strict stance on race and isolation.
  • Uncertain Doom: B.J. wonders in-universe what's become of her now that the Nazis have taken over the world.

    Ronald Reagan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reagan.PNG
Yes, he's that Ronald Reagan. A TV-actor from Arizona, hoping to make his big break by getting a role in Adolf Hitler's new Propaganda Piece.
  • Affably Evil: For his brief moment on-screen, Reagan comes across as a pleasant, eager to please guy. However, the man he wants to please is Adolf Hitler, who he enthusiastically supports.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Courtesy of Hitler, and gets a whole clip emptied in for good measure.
  • Historical Villain Upgrade: Mild example, setting more contentious politics aside. Reagan served in a support role during WWII and expressed little but contempt for the Nazis or their Axis Allies while making a host of propaganda and instructional campaigns. Doing a 180 to try and get a job in Hitler's employ is rather jarring if you know his past.
  • Mistaken for Spies: After he accidentally insults Hitler, the latter furiously holds him at gunpoint, accusing him of being a Jewish spy. Needless to say, it doesn't end well for him.
  • Multiple Gunshot Death: Happens to him when he draws Hitler's ire by inadvertently pressing one of his main Berserk Buttons, namely calling him "Mr. Hitler" instead of "Mein Führer".
  • Older than They Look: Reagan was only 20 years younger than Hitler and would have been around 50 in 1961.
  • Richard Nixon, the Used Car Salesman: Due to Reagan never taking an interest in politics due to the Nazi invasion of the US, this timeline sees Ronald Reagan as still the TV-Actor.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: While he was never shown signs of being a traitor, sucking up towards the senile Hitler won't earn any sympathy points.
  • Take That!: A highly contentious political figure whose shown sucking up to Hitler before being murdered.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Was he really expecting the increasingly senile and Ax-Crazy leader of the Third Reich to respond well to "Mr. Hitler"? Bonus points as he and the other actors were forewarned to be really careful what they said or did around him.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Doesn't even get a chance to act in the audition before getting shot to death.

Introduced in The Freedom Chronicles

    Joseph Stallion aka. "Gunslinger Joe" 
Voiced By: Tim Russ

A former professional quarterback enslaved and brutalised by the Reich, Joseph Stallion's public display of defiance against his fascist oppressors led to his internment at Research Station Omega in Springfield, Illinois - under Uberkommandant Roderick Metze, an American dentist turned Nazi collaborator. But Joe was not a man to be caged; he broke free and escaped the facility to pursue bloody revenge.

  • The Big Guy: He's a dedicated American Football player who uses a considerable amount of Football lingo in his inner monologue, has Charles Atlas Superpower strength, and seems to be the most combat-oriented of the characters. He lacks stealth abilities like silenced weapons or thrown blades (his thrown cans will stun an enemy, not kill them, so they're more for combat combos than stealth kills), and his mastery bonus perks are geared around straightforward heavy combat, such as using heavy weapons, dual-wielding, or using grenades. His special ability is also the most useful in direct combat.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: No explanation for Joe's amazing ramming power and ability to regenerate armor is ever given other than that he was once a pro football player. To clarify, Joe can ram through concrete walls, ram through Nazis hard enough to reduce them into bloody mist, and can even 180 a Nazi's head with his bare hands.
  • Homage: Basically a walking one to the Blaxpliotation genre.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: Joe retains the Ram Shackles' special ability to bash through concrete walls and steel gratings. This is explained as a leftover of Joe's football skills. If he runs at you, don't stay in his way.
  • It's Personal: Metze enslaved Joe's father, and indirectly caused his death. Joe's mission to avenge his Papa takes him to Venus itself.
  • Regenerating Shield, Static Health: Joe regenerates a decent portion of his armor passively.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Joe can throw empty cans to distract guards. This replaces his thrown weapon, but he doesn't need one: he kills Nazis with his bare hands!
  • Soccer-Hating Americans: Inverted; the Nazis dismantled American football, so Joe successfully made the jump to association football.
  • Super Strength: Arguably even stronger than Blazko himself. He doesn't need a super soldier's body and a special gadget to smash through sheer concrete!

    Jessica Valiant aka. "Agent Silent Death" 
Voiced By: Claudia Black

This British former agent of the Office of Strategic Services has spent years fighting the Nazis from the shadows. Her latest venture takes her across the world and beyond in search of the men responsible for the death of her husband Jack. Will she be able to find and assassinate her latest target?

  • Action Girl: She was the only female playable character in the series until the announcement of Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
  • Battle Couple: She and her husband were decorated OSA spies.
  • Bullet Time: Time slows down for her when she's spotted by an enemy, giving you a chance to kill them before they alert anyone.
  • Contralto of Danger: She's voiced by Claudia Black, so her voice is naturally deep.
  • Crusading Widow: Her husband was tortured and murdered by the Nazis, and after spending years in Brazil drowning in booze and men, she decides to do avenge him after receiving a letter from the Crimson Bulldog.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Was a talented agent until her husband was tortured and murdered by the Nazis, leaving her broken.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Jessica wears black and has the appearance of a James Bond movie villainess, but she is fighting against the Nazi regime from the shadows.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: She spent the years after her husband's death getting drunk in Brazil and is constantly talking about her alcoholism. If she gets caught by other enemies, she'll note that the drinking might have taken it's toll on her.
  • Eyepatch of Power: She sports an eyepatch over her left eye and is plenty deadly.
  • Femme Fatale: Certainly has the aesthetic down pat.
  • Fragile Speedster: Jessica's maximum armour is limited to 40; as a Stealth Expert, she dislikes burdening herself too much. However this does mean she is considerably more vulnerable in protracted firefights. She also doesn't get more powerful weaponry like the kampfpistole grenade launcher, which limits her options if faced with heavier opponents such as Super Soldiers.
  • Life Drain: She receives a small health amount of health for each enemy killed.
  • The Lost Lenore: Her husband, Jack, who bought her time to escape the Nazis.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Her DLC is all about her getting vengeance on the men who killed her husband.
  • Stealth Expert: Jessica retains the Constrictor Harness' ability to fit through incredibly tight spaces. This is justified by her past infiltration training. The fact she's much smaller-framed than B.J. probably helps too. She also makes less noise when moving and her mastery bonus perks are focused around stealth activities such as backstabs, headshots, and throwing knife kills.
  • Survivor's Guilt: She admits if the situation was reversed she would’ve gladly given her life for Jack and isn’t happy it isn’t the case.

    Captain Gerald Wilkins 

Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore
A former US Army Captain renowned for his deeds during the war, Gerald "Jerry" Wilkins had been reduced to hiding from the Nazis in the ruins of Manhattan, on a mission to destroy the Nazis' latest superweapon: the Sun Gun. His quest takes him to the Nazi bunkers of Kodiak Island, Alaska. Can he infiltrate the bunkers and destroy the prototype weapon before it can be used against innocent Americans?

  • An Axe to Grind: Like B.J., he uses hatchets for melee and throwing.
  • Badass Baritone: His voice is much deeper than even B.J.'s.
  • Combat Pragmatist: His mastery bonus perks are based around damaging enemies with elemental effects or environmental hazards.
  • It's Personal with the Dragon: Clive Cross, Wilkins' second-in-command and best friend, turns out to be a deep cover Nazi spy and becomes the target of the 2nd mission. General Schwarz, the target of the 3rd and final mission, is just some Nazi asshole with no personal relation to Wilkins.
  • Life Drain: He receives a small amount of health for each enemy killed, which synergizes well with his enhanced health.
  • Old Soldier: He's the oldest of the playable characters. Fridge Logic kicks in when you consider that B.J. himself is only 2 years younger than him, but looks a good 2 decades younger.
  • One-Man Army: Over the past couple of decades he's single-handedly destroyed dozens of Nazi installations. The Mole even warns the Nazis that attempting to confront him instead of sticking to the plan and leading him into a trap will result in "massive casualties".
  • Single-Issue Wonk: Like B.J. himself, Captain Wilkins is a monomaniac whose life is focused solely around killing Nazis. His long-lost daughter even calls him out on this.
  • Still Wearing the Old Colors: Still wears his old Captain's uniform even after the fall of the U.S. military.
  • Stone Wall: Wilkins' overcharged health doesn't deplete unless he's taken damage, and it stops depleting whenever he kills an enemy or heals, so technically his max health is 200, much higher than other player characters.
  • Tricked-Out Shoes: Wilkins wears a pair of captured Kampfwanderer telescoping boots, which basically give him the same extendable stilt-walking ability as B.J.'s battle walker upgrade from the main game.
