Xavier Lynn Nickname: n/a Gender: M Eyes: green Hair: dark red, chin-length, pulled back into a half-ponytail Species: human Appearance: Short, slim, perpetually nervous-looking. Very pale and has freckles. He usually wears a long-sleeved tunic, leggings, boots, and a short cape over his shoulders. He has a brand burned into his upper right arm in the shape of a diamond, and his back is heavily scarred, but usually hides these marks beneath his clothes. Abilities: Physically stronger than you'd expect, considering he's fairly short and slim. He has considerable magic ability but it's essentially been rendered unusable; he can't really control it, and trying to use it is extremely painful. He is also a good cook. Weaponry: usually none.
Sometimes carries a pair of handcuffs for making arrests. They are enchanted to be unbreakable through traditional means, and will have a detrimental effect on demonic entities.
Personality: Timid, submissive, polite. Easily startled. He will be especially respectful to those he perceives as being of a higher social position. He can be unexpectedly bold under the right circumstances, such as if someone he cares about is threatened, but he will not always try to defend himself. Background: Xavier was a slave in the kingdom of Courdon for the first seventeen years of his life, where he was mistreated by his master, Lord Duval. He escaped and fled to Courdon's northern neighbor, Kyth, where he was taken in by an innkeeper and began working as her cook. Currently about nineteen.
He was later recruited by a noble house, House Jade; though he initially believed they had taken him as a slave, he grew to trust them.

Do not mess with her furniture. Background: Ilsa grew up in Medieville, the capital of Kyth. She remained unmarried and runs the King's Arms Inn. After hiring Xavier as her cook, the inn became much more successful, since he's a much better cook than she is.

Has a neatly trimmed beard. Abilities:Super good at being awful Weaponry: sword and a whip Personality: Arrogant and entitled with a quick temper and a huge ego. He's quick to turn to violence when angered, because he's used to being able to beat or even execute almost anyone he wants. Insult or humiliate him enough and you'll have an enemy for life. He haaaaates not getting his way because he is a spoiled child. Background: One of the wealthiest and most powerful noblemen in Courdon, lord of the province of Talvace. He's a close friend of the king. He has quite a few slaves, including Xavier before Xavier escaped from him. (He isn't happy about that.)
Admiral Zaal'Koris vas Qwib-Qwib Nickname: Koris, Admiral Koris, or Zaal Gender: M Eyes: pale and glowing Hair: black, chin-length, he wears it halfway swept back in traditional quarian style - but as he never takes off his helmet, this can't be seen Species: quarian Abilities: skilled in politics and diplomacy Weaponry: none Personality: Generally polite, but gets very passionate and heated in arguments, particularly if it's something he believes strongly about. Self-sacrificing, sometimes to a fault. Incredibly stubborn and sometimes goes too far in the service of a cause he believes in. Very good at controlling his emotions and presenting the image he wants others to see. Background: A member of the Quarian Admiralty Board, which governs the Migrant Fleet. His background is in civilian government, not military, and even now his military rank is mostly a formality; he's in charge of the Civilian Fleet and usually handles things like trade and diplomacy with other species, as well as settling disputes between civilian captains and acting as a liaison between the Admiralty and the Civilian Conclave. He is well-loved by the Civilian Fleet, particularly the crew of his own ship, the Qwib-Qwib, who admire him deeply. His views on the geth are highly controversial: he is one of the very few quarians who would be willing to consider peace with them, and thinks that the quarians should not attempt war to retake their homeworld.
Admiral Han'Gerrel vas Neema Nickname: Gerrel, Admiral Gerrel, Han Gender: M Eyes: pale and glowing Hair: black, short and messy Species: quarian Abilities: physically fit and decent at hand-to-hand combat; proficient with several weapons and is an excellent shot Weaponry: none Personality: Impulsive, aggressive, and reckless. Very warm and friendly when interacting with someone he has no reason to consider an enemy. Easily angered (AIs, and the geth in particular, are a touchy topic). Driven, determined, and single-minded about pursuing his goals. Background: Gerrel is the admiral in charge of the Heavy Fleet, the Migrant Fleet's military division. This often places him directly at odds with Zaal'Koris. For most of his career he has been in close association with Admiral Rael'Zorah, usually following Rael's lead and siding with him in military and political decisions. Both Rael and Han had the ultimate goal of retaking the homeworld, Rannoch. However, Rael's plans ended in tragedy when he and an entire ship of researchers were killed by geth that they were experimenting on. Following the death of his best friend, Gerrel's determination to retake the homeworld has slowly transformed into an obsession, and his hatred of the geth burns hotter than ever. He does not trust any AI, and does not believe them to be alive.
The Emissary (aka Dave Strider) Nickname: none. I mean, you can call him Dave if you want but expect to get lots of blank creepy stares and “i am not dave strider”s. Gender: M Eyes: bright lime green. All over. They also sometimes flash rapid colors and are very unsettling to look at. Hair: platinum blonde Species: human, made immortal by Lrd English’s powers. Abilities: time travel (which is his own power), dimension hopping (which is Lrd English’s) He is very good with a sword but he’s mostly forgotten about that. Weaponry: a pair of timetables - floating turntables which he uses to manipulate time. Also a large, broken sword. It is called Caledscratch, though he has forgotten this. It makes him feel odd to look at and he doesn’t use it often. Personality: emotionless and utterly ruthless. He occasionally has flashes of who he used to be, which leave him upset and angry. Background: The Emissary was once Dave Strider, the Knight of Time, one of four kids from a planet called Earth who was playing a game of unbelievably high stakes called Sburb. Something went wrong, and their session was reset. Dave’s three friends managed to escape in time, but Dave did not... he wound up in the “care” of a strange omniscient man named Doc Scratch, being trained so that he could use his time powers in the service of a universe-consuming demon called Lrd English. Dave Strider no longer exists. But... sometimes he almost remembers that he did, once. talks in red (hexadecimal e00707) all lowercase with no punctuation
Character Theme Songs Links go to Youtube videos where appropriate, although that is obviously not the case for songs that contain swearing. Spoiler boxes contain what I feel are a particularly fitting quote of lyrics.
I want to be dependable, I want to be courageous and good I want to be faithful so that I can be heroic and true I want to be a friend you can rely on you can lean on and trust I want to understand so I can forgive and be willing to love
Weep, little lion man, You're not as brave as you were at the start Rate yourself and rake yourself Take all the courage you have left And waste it on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head
