Player Characters

    Main party 

Caprion Uchiha Minecraft
Caprion's player token
A somewhat unpredictable, frequently rude thief with a ridiculous last name. He's been in the hot seat for crimes he didn't commit twice now.

Eugene Parvaiz Silva
Eugene's player token
A faun wizard with deep religious trauma trying to make the best of his predicament. Suffers from low self-esteem and a sense of doom, especially where his magic is concerned.

Lucille Saintiel
Lucille's player token
A kind, selfless small-town boy with a heart of gold and a self-sacrificial streak.

Oleander Marigold
Oleander's player token
A squirrel-like wizard/botanist from... somewhere. He was staying at Lililia's house when he met the party.

Vivien Argent
Vivien's player token
A beautiful, but temperamental elf from the big city... that he's never left before.

Ziekte's player token
A (strangely scaly) amnesiac cleric bound to his deity and not much else. Despite his divine allegiances, he's a rather nice guy, and something of a Team Dad.
