Website / Neo-Duelist League

Go To

The NDL by its very nature offers nothing at all except a place to write and to read the writing of others. That's all we're about, and all that we have.

Neo-Duelist League is a humble sub-forum of Neoseeker, a computer hardware and gaming website. The Neo-Duelist League is dedicated to a specialized kind of role-playing. Members create original characters, who can take part in "Duels", friendly competitive role-plays where each person introduces his or her character to the chosen setting, then take turns posting to advance a conflict between said characters. Upon reaching a pre-agreed number of turns, other members of the League step in as judges to provide feedback and decide the winner based on quality of writing. The victor may then write out the conclusion of the duel as they see fit (with consideration for their opponent of course), which is traditionally used to depict their character triumphing over the other.


First created early in 2004, the NDL — as it is often called — has been through many changes in its membership, management and structure. It is built around duels, but has expanded over time to include other features, such as a thread for writing about NDL characters in non-duel situations, monthly writing challenges based on themes and use of same characters, forum games, and so on. There is no defined setting, universe or canon; every duelist is free to create their own plots, histories, mythologies, abilities, worlds and more, and to set their duels in any location they can dream up. The NDL serves as a blank canvas without limits, and with obvious compromise when agreeing to duel other characters, any member may acknowledge the work of others and seek to write together, or dismiss it to do their own thing as they please. After all, the NDL's creed is "Unlimited Freedom".


The NDL is a small forum which nyone can join, provided they have a Neoseeker account (which is free) and get a character approved (which is easy).

Note: When troping specific events, rather than general recurring circumstances or character traits, please include a link.

General Tropes:

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: With so many sword-wielding characters running around, this one was inevitable.
    • Malali's main melee weapon, the sword Kaavel, can cut through "almost anything", depending on the strength of the wielder.
  • Achilles' Heel: In A Night of Death, as the Duelists fight the Deathknight, they begin to argue over whether or not he has some weakness. Malali contacts them telepathically to let them know this is the case.
  • Action Girl: Although often possessing other skills, a fair few female characters can mix it up physically.
    • Alarielle mostly uses magic, but her sword skills and demeanor make her quite the Lady of War.
    • Alexis Merryweather uses magic in handy situations, but mostly fights with her katana and her twin pistols.
    • Advertisement:
    • The only reason Benny is still alive, as she possesses no other powers of her own.
    • Emote can most be likened to an Action Mom overall, especially considering how she saves Maitrey from Amadeth in The Real Us.
    • Kat Whisker's main form of fighting is with her fists and claws, even though she has a gun and Hypnotic Eyes.
    • Malali is an all-round Action Girl, with melee, archery and some magic for support.
    • Ezra Frost can control almost all forms of machinery and make hardlight structures.
    • Raven also has a strong magical arsenal, but still frequently gets up close and personal with her sword, Nevermore.
  • Air-Vent Passageway: Used by Crysis and Zone, who have more than once performed an air vent infiltration.
  • Anatomy Arsenal: The Executioner has about half the sub-tropes of this collectively on his body.
  • Ancestral Weapon: A fair few duelists carry heirlooms with practical uses.
    • Lucius Menucci's whip Angelic Requiem is a family heirloom.
    • Silvon's sword Kinistros.
  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: Pretty much what it took to get the cast together for A Night of Death.
  • Are We There Yet?: As Basis and Emote travel home from Krad, two variations of this line are repeated several times.
  • Audience Participation: The Writer asks the audience if he should get some screen time, and threatens to kill them if they don't answer correctly.
  • Badass Army: A Night of Death features Malali, Emote, Basis, Zerith Dathka, Tetrath, Crysis and Zone, Ret Herefit, Saint Pagan, Alarielle, Smikals Jeofreddy, Severein Auronis, Belatu, Origin, The Executioner AND a legion of alien soldiers armed to the teeth with guns, cannons and giant power-suits.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Lanate works for people with this as their job description.
  • Beam-O-War: In "A Night of Death", Arimus fires a green beam at The Prince only to be matched with a yellow one. Placing all of his suits power into the attack, he triumphs seemingly.
  • Berserk Button: A large number of characters have them, to varying degrees.
    • Basis: The worst possible thing to do is destroy a piece of his bubble wrap.
    • Clief: Don't withhold information about his past - he has a Goddamn dragon and he isn't afraid to use it.
    • The Executioner: Err... Exist around him.
    • Silence: Insulting his (dead) parents.
    • Tetrath: Being around whilst he isn't raping everything means you somehow forced niceness upon him, and for this he will make you pay dearly.
  • Big Bad: Some characters have stories including or revolving around one of these.
    • Malali's first story arc, concluding with the novel-length "A Night of Death", was pretty much centred around defeating The Deathknight.
  • Big Eater: Selig and Blitzkrieg in a fast-food restaurant leads to horrible, horrible things.
  • Black-and-Gray Morality: Can arise when both characters in a duel aren't of the heroic cut.
    • Ion is a poster child for this trope, so much so that many people have described him as evil even though he himself despises evil people.
  • Blood Knight: Several characters show tendencies of this. Some notable examples are Basis, Tetrath, and Emote's Anger form.
  • Body-Count Competition: Firine and Firinar have a competition to see who can kill the most undead Australians. By the time they're forced to stop playing, Firinar is at 26,880 and Firine is at 26,873 (of course, that's only because the big mook still only counted as one).
  • Body Surf: Being a ghost, Mazay Gorave needs a host to fight with, and may use several (though not at once).
  • David Versus Goliath: Although the presence of weapons/magic/other equalisers do balance it out, some duels still qualify.
    • Crysis and Zone (a pair of life-size rodents) versus The Executioner (an 8-foot+ tall demonic cyborg) may be the forum's Most Triumphant Example.
  • Deal with the Devil: One of several things that can be used to establish a character's backstory. Duelists have it rough.
    • It is discovered that consorting with the lower circles is what led to the creation of the Deathknight.
    • Provided you are willing to pay the price, Ged Tenshi is always willing to make a deal.
  • Death Seeker: Izaiack was brought back to life against his will and desperately wishes to die again.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Some duels end with the combatants forming friendships post-battle.
    • Basis has grown quite fond of hanging around Malali and Emote, who uh, tolerate him in return. Mostly.
  • Demonic Possession: Where to begin?
    • Raven has a complicated relationship with the demon Diablo, but it generally boils down to this most of the time.
    • Ret Herefit was possessed by an entity inside a gem he found - although he eventually fought it off, it remains lurking inside him, influencing him subtly without his realisation.
  • Deus ex Machina: Lampshaded by Plot Convenience Man, who shows Maxwell how to get to his destination and gives him cryptic advice about the future.
  • Divide and Conquer: Malali leads Nae'Blis away from Prince Tiger to better her side's chance at victory.
  • Does Not Like Magic: Belatu, Druid King of Wolves believes that magic and those who practice it are evil, and it is his duty to destroy them.
  • Downer Ending: For Arimus in A Night of Death - the love of his life is dead, his original mission of sealing the void was a huge failure, and while he was possessed by Prince Tiger he destroyed his base. Then he transforms into some form of monster.
  • Dual Wielding: Another popular one.
    • Angus uses two short swords as his main weapons.
    • The Green Knight wields two double-bladed broadswords.
    • Zerith Dathka carries no less than three pairs of knives.
  • Duels Decide Everything: Actually makes sense, since these are proper fighting duels, not card games or the like.
  • Enemy Mine: Tetrath is admittedly evil, but Even Evil Has Standards, and, "I'm not going to let this... pest, destroy my universes."
    • Malali, Nae’Blis, and the Executioner manage to ignore their desire to kill each other in the face of the greater threat that is the Macross.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: In The Antartic Incident, The Executioner assumes that the combination of a large power source and advanced robotic research means Grey Matter Industries must be trying to replicate and improve upon his work, with the ultimate goal of destroying Germany.
  • Everyone Meets Everyone: Malali goes about recruiting the cast one by one for A Night of Death, eventually gathering them into one place; there's even a nice little scene in which Arimus summarises the basics of each character.
  • Evil Overlord: The Deathknight, complete with an army of The Undead in A Night of Death.
  • Flaming Sword: Ret's sword can harness four elements, and his favourite of those is fire. When Alarielle focused her powers (also favouring fire) into it during A Night of Death, it was taken up to eleven.
  • Finishing Move: Featured in the July '10 Writing Challenge, and many of the characters use one in their victory posts.
    • Also used by Cojisto and Moose during this exhibition duel.
  • G-Rated Drug: Although never expressly stated as marijuana, the herbs that Blitzkrieg and Selig put on their pizza does have hallucinogenic effects.
  • Gray Rain of Depression: After Malali's sacrifice has saved the day, Basis wonders why this isn't happening.
  • Give Me a Sign: Malali prays to her Deities for a sign of what to do about Severein. When Zerith Dathka arrives shortly after this prayer, she believes she has gotten her answer.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Zig-zagged in A Night of Death. The situation hasn't crossed the Godzilla Threshold, however if drastic measures aren't taken prematurely it would be forced upon the group later, thus even though The Executioner is clearly an evil machine of death and destruction (and though using him directly worsened the rips in The Void), Arimus accepts it as a necessity, so as to save power for later.
  • Guns Are Worthless: Characters can wield pistols, shotguns, rifles and rocket launchers. But because you can't kill your opponent's character, the worst a duelist generally gets to inflict on another is a wounding shot.
  • Guns vs. Swords: The first part of Carlyle vs Clief has this, although Clief cheated by bringing fireballs.
  • Healing Factor: Kira is able to heal herself with some effort, and others by touching them. Alexis Merryweather can heal herself as well, and Emote's Love form is based around this ability.
    • The Druid Silvertonuge can heal from almost everything, due to a gift from The Troll Queen.
  • Hearing Voices: A Night of Death - upon observing Saint Pagan, Emote realizes that the man is crazy and speaks to his doll, (whom he calls Bella). Seeking to use this to her advantage, she pretends to be the voice Saint Pagan is talking to. He immediately recognizes her trickery, but is held back from his vengeance by the words he hears from his doll.
  • Hell Is That Noise: The Deathknight's laugh is described as being able to leave a weak mind scarred and a poor soul broken.
  • Heroism Incentive: Several of the duelists have to be bribed to join Malali in A Night of Death. He'll destroy the universe? Sorry, I'll need more than that.
  • Highly Visible Password: Arimus' passwords are spoken aloud and always have some stealth pun buried in the code.
  • Hitman with a Heart: Edison Carlyle Stayler is one of these.
  • Hide Your Lesbians: Subverted - Emote and Malali hardly even seem to be trying to be discreet.
    • This also applies to Connor and his (deceased) partner Peter, for a male example.
  • Hollywood Hacking: Used to hack into The Executioner. Justified because Arimus' level of technology is far more advanced than The Executioner's.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: Arimus manages to trick Prince Tiger who has taken control of his body into unleashing the Executioner in the hopes that the demonic machine will kill him.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Chaeffer Muensun fights with a sharpened stick of frozen salami.
  • It's Personal: After being casually tossed aside by the Macross, Malali ceases to view the battle as one of survival, and instead feels an overwhelming need to restore her honor.
  • I Work Alone: Malali had tried to fight The Deathknight alone but failed. In A Night of Death she finally learns from this mistake.
  • Just Between You and Me: A Night of Death has a rare heroic example, with Arimus revealing to The Prince the secrets behinds his abilities.
    "Hah, you give away your secrets so easily."
    "I have no reason to hide them, after-all, I am going to kill you."
  • Kill the Cutie: Poor little Sophie just wanted to find her mommy. Then she met the Executioner.
  • Kukris Are Kool: One of Benny's main weapons is a kukri. The other is a machete.
  • Last of His Kind: Malus Nupu.
  • Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: Sometimes people like to throw in obvious references to other duelists or fictional characters with a Paper-Thin Disguise.
    • And sometimes they don't even bother with the disguise.
  • Leit Motif: Daevon Le Sanches comes with his own theme song, a rarity in the NDL.
  • Lethal Chef: Tonya's cooking isn't great.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Often with a balancing shortcoming elsewhere.
    • Although probably a bit more brawn than speed, Angus is a towering mass of muscle who nonetheless is quite acrobatic. No ranged capability beyond some knives balances this out.
  • Little Miss Badass:
    • Benny. She looks innocent until you notice the fact she's wielding a shotgun, complete with magic bullets, two big knives, and has enough hand-to-hand talent to take down a jujutsu master.
    • Emi is a 14 year-old girl who acquired supernatural powers and used them to violently murder other people around her age who had bullied/otherwise incensed her in the past.
  • MacGuffin: Maxwell the Savior of Mankind's adventure into hammerspace is all to find Super Panties.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: It's a machine named Macross. It fires missiles. What more do you need?
  • Mad Oracle: Waking up in prison, Maxwell encounters Mr Squeegee, a man in a straight jacket who speaks gibberish. Luckily Maxwell's unique mind is able to use these words to trigger an epiphany.
  • Malevolent Architecture: Crops up from time to time.
  • Make a Wish: Daevon Le Sanches goes into a forgotten forest and finds a fairy. When asked what he wishes for, he says he wants power so that he might take his revenge. The fairy horribly burns his arm and he runs back to his castle. He later discovers the burnt arm can now control fire.
  • Meaningful Name: Quite a common theme.
    • Kira Storme's name translates to 'dark violent weather'. Guess what her ability is.
  • Mêlée à Trois: Upon meeting each other in "The Antarctic Incident", Nae'Blis, Malali and the Executioner immediately enter one of these.
  • Mental World: Sometimes referred to as a mindscape. Ion has entered Malali's, Clief's and part of Emote's, Emote has entered Ion's and Chase's, and Tetrath has entered Malali's.
  • Mind over Matter: Many characters use telekinesis as an ability.
  • Mind Rape: Some characters have ways of attempting to inflict this.
    • Zerith Dathka can cast a spell of sanity-shredding terror via eye contact that only the strongest of wills are able to resist.
  • Misguided Missile: In The Antartic Incident, Malali manages to wrap a chain around a lone missile and uses it to launch said missile back at the Macross.
  • Mordor: A Night of Death saw The Deathknight turn Australia into, well... A really inhospitable wasteland.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Zig zags between characters; a fair number of physical powerhouses look the part, but others may possess comparable or greater strength, often due to supernatural talents.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Tetrath/The End Of All Things, Mortis Blackwraith, Der Scharfrichter (The Executioner), Carnifex Deum (The Executioner of God), Malali (Shadow of War), Maxwell.
  • Necromancer:
    • Saxionomie The Spirit Caller, though he is feared as a "shaman" in his village...
  • Ninja: A semi-popular character archetype.
  • No Fourth Wall: Some characters take their fictional lives at face value, some have Medium Awareness, and then some are like this.
  • Non-Lethal Warfare: Killing off characters in a duel is forbidden (unless the character is being retired by their author).
  • No Ontological Inertia: Without the Deathknight, his minions are no more.
  • Odd Friendship: Basis and Malali. Where to begin?
  • One-Man Army: Allowing for a loose definition of man, some duelists can enter this territory.
  • Only I Can Kill Him: Played so straight between Malali and The Deathknight in "A Night of Death" it physically hurt.
  • Only One Name: Several.
    • Angus.
    • Audio
    • Blitzkrieg.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Zerith Dathka can walk in sunlight unaffected thanks to the heritage of his mother.
  • Our Wormholes Are Different: Malali and Arimus utilize these to speak to the other duelists, and bring them all to one place so that they can march against The Deathknight.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Since different characters rarely share personal story elements, pretty much every duel starts off with the other duelist being an Outside Context Opponent. How much and how well they integrate from there is a case-by-case situation.
  • Painful Transformation: Siobhan's switch into her werewolf form is... not pleasant.
  • Playing with Fire: A common element in many arsenals, with some characters taking it further.
    • Likewise, Ret Herefit is most skilled with fire of the four classical elements.
    • Zander is all about this, even using it to Teleport and change form.
  • Please, Don't Leave Me: The newly resurrected Malali plans on serving her home world. Emote (and Basis) begs her to stay with them instead.
  • Power Perversion Potential: So all over the place it actually rarely gets mentioned, probably because it seems too obvious.
  • Powered Armor: Arimus wears one of these, Malali thinking of him as a "metal beast."
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: Plentiful.
    Half-Tail Mac: “Come forth and prepare yourself for the storm, boy.”
  • Really 700 Years Old:
    • Always ready to one-up, Blitzkrieg is 2,300 years old and looks around twenty-five.
    • Malus Nupu looks 8, but is in fact centuries old.
  • Real Women Don't Wear Dresses: Benny has to be forced into one.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • Basis/Other
    • Firine/Firinar
    • Milly/Azure
    • Tetrath/Credence
    • Fade/Inferno
  • Revenge: Many NDL characters have this as their primary or one of their main motivations.
    • When Daevon Le Sanches' father was fatally wounded in war, he became obsessed with gaining power so that he might enact his revenge.
  • Running Gag: Did you know that Basis likes bubble wrap?
    • Perhaps you know of Clief's shockingly poor people skills.
    • "Some d00ds and lady-d00ds have certain speech tendencies, d00d."
    • "Basis has speechy things too. Audience may have notic- berightbackthere'sasquirellBasishastochase!"
  • Sealed Badass in a Can: Faced with her imminent death, Malali places her soul into the Deathknight's sword.
  • Self-Destruct Mechanism: Arimus in his will instructs Malali to use a code to destroy his base so that the advanced technology inside doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
  • Sequel Hook: In the epilogue of Adventures in Hammerspace, Maxwell realises that he needs to find the Writer again in order to become the Savior of Mankind. We also get the revelation of who Maxwell's creator is, and all that implies.
  • Serial Escalation: Par for the course.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Subverted by Izaiack, who is wearing a suit that would indeed be classy, if not for the wear and tear along with the accompanying bloodstains.
  • Shock and Awe: Was Raven's primary element before acquiring the sword Nevermore, and seems to still be part of her arsenal after.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Glados, a human who doesn't really have any similarities to the computer from Portal beyond being in control of a large/shady organisation, but it's not exactly a common name.
    • Fade Prise, a time traveller, shares a body with a man named Inferno. Both have names from Claudio Sanchez's The Amory Wars, and in Fade's future, the planets are connected by a lattice of energy, similar to The Keywork.
    • To the same extent, we have The Writer, or "C," who has The Writing Well, as compared to The Willing Well. Not to mention a character in The Amory Wars is named "The Writing Writer."
    • In Normal Day, Malali is reading a book. The story isn't very subtle about which book it is.
    • A Night of Death has a minor Australian character called Zachary, who is not unlike a certain member of the forum, including their name.
  • Sir Swearsalot: Most duelists are rather tame in their use of language. This is not the case for Smikals Jeofreddy.
  • Sliding Scale Of Freewill Vs Fate: Emote and Malali have a discussion about where the world falls. Emote seems to believe in a combination of Type 0 and Type 1. Basically our genetic traits and environment mean that we will be a certain way and then Higher Beings decide when we will be born to try and maintain a balance.
  • So What Do We Do Now?: With the Deathknight defeated and her home world no longer in need of her, Malali wonders what is left for her. Emote suggests that she view Emote's world as Valahala, and Malali can be Batman.
  • Speech Impediment: Thelena, the latht printheth of Elinia, hath a thlight lithp.
  • Spider Tank: The Macross, designed and used by Grey Matter Industries during The Antarctic Incident.
  • Spoiler: This ends up being Nezia's weakness, and Maxwell unleashes a barrage of It Was His Sled moments at him.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: Mr Squeegee disappears without Maxwell noticing. Selena then informs him that all cells were made for only one man.
  • Storming the Castle: A Night of Death was pretty much built around reaching and then storming The Deathknight's castle.
  • Stupid Jetpack Hitler: Dr Kaufmann, a quite insane Nazi when his Demonic Possession isn't making matters worse, is a walking tank with an arsenal large enough to give most superpowers penis envy. And yes, he has a jetpack.
  • Super Mode: Many variants, often with a catch to limit their use.
    • Malali can achieve something like this by using a dose of the Tiaoro Strand Serum X5.
    • Raven being taken over by Diablo is pretty bad for her opponents, but when both merge to form Synn, the result is again somewhere between this and One-Winged Angel.
    • During A Night of Death, The Deathknight erected a giant, black dome which spent a month absorbing magical energy. He then absorbed that, essentially making him able to brush off attacks from Tetrath.
  • Sword Sparks: When Alexis Merryweather and Kushluk Shimazu crossed blades, the force was enough to produce sparks.
  • Taking the Bullet: Knowing that her attack might destroy the planet, Malali uses her stabilizer and transports herself and the Deathknight to the planet Krad, firing her blast as she does so.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Although unintentional, The Deathknight's attempts at conquest ultimately would have caused the destruction of existence.
  • The Fundamentalist: Saint Pagan believes in his cause. Strongly.
  • The Multiverse: This is how Arimus ''tries'' to explain the many worlds the duelists come from.
  • The Time of Myths: Half-tail Mac exists in one of these, although it's implied to be ending soon.
    • Chase was born in one of these but went into what is described as a 'deep sleep' when the deities began disappearing, and is now a part of the modern world.
  • There Are No Therapists: Oh boy, are there no therapists.
    • Lampshaded by the May '11 writing challenge, which was focussed around a therapy session.
    • Subverted by Ion and Emote's duel, where the latter went there with the express idea of giving the former therapy. It did not end well.
  • They Called Me Mad!: Glados' speech to his potential investors shows signs of this.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!:
  • Tiger Versus Dragon: Malali and Basis constantly find ways to fight, whether it's out of drunkenness or just plain for fun. Neither has conclusively proven themselves stronger, and Basis is adamant that they'll be fighting for a long time.
  • Tin Tyrant: The Deathknight.
  • To Hell and Back: Malali journeys to the depths of Lar's underworlds to retrieve the war-hammer Eclipse in order to fulfil a not entirely stable prophecy. It wasn't a pleasant journey.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Malali and Emote respectively (at least when the latter is in her less volatile forms).
  • The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: The entrie premise of a double-length writing challenge.
    • Subverted when a zombie-like infection started to spread through the group of duelists in A Night of Death - the already strained alliance crumbled to an all out brawl. Eventually the situation is resolved.
  • Video Will: Arimus leaves one of these for Malali to explain why he had to do the things he did.
  • Vigilante Man: When Stayler is hunting down criminals he does not aim to wound.
  • Villainous Breakdown: It's a long time coming, but The Deathknight finally suffers one of these in A Night of Death, complete with the symbolic loss of his imposing armour to reveal the withered being within.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Hyuga is able to fuse with anything near him and gain powers based off the property of the item he fused with. He is even able to fuse with God, but the stronger the transformation the harsher the consequences for his mind and body.
  • Warrior Prince: Daevon Le Sanches is the heir to his kingdom's throne.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    Emote: "I've heard what (The Firins) do in their alone time, I will not condone such things whilst you're within my city, do you understand?! I don't care how black these souls that they target are, if there is even a chance for change allowing what your pets do to them is not right and you know it."
  • White Void Room: The meeting room of the Antarctic Base in The Antartic Incident is designed like this. It is aptly named "the white room".
  • Words Can Break My Bones: Lanate's main method of attack.
    • Technically this applies to C/The Writer as well, although his words are of the written variety.
  • World of Badass
  • Worthy Opponent: The reason Tetrath spared Malali's life, or so he says. Crops up semi-frequently between duelists.
  • Would Not Hit a Girl: Blitzkrieg would never hit a woman, as long as they are normal and not duelist level in power.
    • Subverted once, he hit a (mostly) normal woman but she WAS about to destroy his world so...
  • Would Hit a Girl: Given the number of badass fighting females in the NDL, it would probably be best to assume this is the case unless something in a character's profile indicates otherwise.
  • Your Head A-Splode: When a regular soldier fires on him, the Deathknight calmly absorbs the shot then flicks his wrist and causes the soldier's head to turn into a red mist.
  • Your Mom:
    Basis (to Nae'blis during his metal phase in A Night of Death): "Your mama was so fat... erm... she married a space shuttle! Get it, 'cause she was metal, like you."
  • Your Soul Is Mine!: The Deathknight, Prince Tiger, and Ged Tenshi. Hey, those souls were just sitting there anyway.
