Webcomic / Hazard's Wake

Go To

Hazard's Wake is a Fantasy Webcomic drawn in an Animesque style that takes place in an Eastern RPG world with numerous characters.

The series seems to jump back and forth from Affectionate Parody to epic fantasy story. The story boils down to the individual adventures of the groups while parodying a lot of old RPGs (the old Final Fantasies seem to be the most frequent targets, including an obvious Tellah vs. Golbez expy) but seems to tie into a demon's plot to unlock the sealed northern continent of 'Hazard's Wake'.

The huge cast includes:

  • Fatima, a near peerless swords-woman with limited Light ETHER (aka Light Magic) who is ostensibly the main character.
  • Kevinsky, local meta-guy, a captain of the guards turned pirate turned mercenary.
  • Araceli, a Shy Blue-Haired Girl who has been locked in a tower with ghosts most of her life. She has dreams of monsters who refer to her as the "Eye of the Dark God."
  • Solaria, a Holy Knight who uses Sky ETHER to speed her movements. She seems to hide her emotions unless she becomes overly frustrated.
  • Milliene, a Psi Knight who lost her memories while overusing her powers. Seems rather attached to Solaria.
  • Cress, a Demon Hunter who can use fire elemental attacks but isn't quite able to understand his odd new companions.
  • Maple, a powerful healer thanks to her water ETHER, also seems to live in her own reality sometimes.
