Hero Class/Name Biography
Orrin Knight
Human M Specialty: Archery    Orrin trained with one of Erathia's best siege tacticians during his early military service. Any archers under his command learn quickly to shoot at targets behind obstacles.
Valeska Knight
Human F Specialty: Archers    Valeska became known as a master marksman when she first served in the Erathian military. Now she not only commands her own forces, but spends time personally training her Crossbow troops as well.
Edric Knight
Human M Specialty: Griffins    Edric's ancestor was the first man in Erathia to domesticate and train a wild Griffin. Now, Edric's family maintains Erathia's largest Griffin breeding grounds for use in the King's armies.
Sylvia Knight
Human F Specialty: Navigation    Sylvia spent several years as a Regnan Pirate before realizing that a pirate's life was not for her. She sought a new life in the Erathian Military, and now serves in the Coastal Patrol, fighting off raids from the same Pirates she once sailed with.
Lord Haart Knight
Lord Haart
Human M Specialty: Estates    Some have said that Lord Haart's departure from Enroth was due to ties with a Necromantic cult, but his service to the crown of Erathia has been as spotless as it was to Roland Ironfist before the Succession Wars.
Sorsha Knight
Human F Specialty: Swordsmen    Following Queen Catherine's example, Sorsha joined the ranks of the Erathian Military, quickly proving herself as a master of swordplay. She was granted her first command shortly after the Kreegans arrived in Erathia.
Christian Knight
Human M Specialty: Ballista    Christian was always more of a frontiersman than a Knight, having set foot in nearly every part of Enroth before finally settling into military service in Erathia. Though a wanderer and a bit of a dreamer, his battlefield tactics are feared throughout the world.
Tyris Knight
Human F Specialty: Cavaliers    Tyris rose quickly through the ranks of the Erathian Cavalry, not only for her ability to handle a horse, but for her 'sixth sense' regarding mounted strategy and tactics. She has also never lost a joust.
Rion Cleric
Human M Specialty: First Aid    Rion worked as a battlefield medic in the Erathian Military, but proved his ability to command when his captain was slain fighting the Kreegan hordes. Rion was able to outmaneuver the enemy long enough for reinforcements to arrive.
Adela Cleric
Human F Specialty: Bless    Originally Adela only contributed her skills prior to battles. If she could not convince her commander to avoid a fight, she would at least prepare a blessing for the troops as they entered combat. She was given command of the Whitestone garrison.
Cuthbert Cleric
Human M Specialty: Weakness    As a young man, Cuthbert toyed with the darker magics, but when his wife died because a spell that he cast had gone awry, he turned to good and has never looked back. His insights to the workings of dark magic give him an edge possessed by no other.
Adelaide Cleric
Human F Specialty: Frost Ring    Caught at sea during a storm, Adelaide was shipwrecked on the shores of Vori, home of the Snow Elves. She trained with them for some twenty years, and upon her return to Erathia discovered that no time had passed in her absence.
Ingham Cleric
Human M Specialty: Monks    Ingham maintained a modest monastery in the years before the Kreegan attack. He and his monks were quickly pressed into the service of the Erathian crown.
Sanya Cleric
Human F Specialty: Eagle Eye    Sanya has always been a fast learner, quickly outperforming first other students, then other acolytes once she had joined the church. She seems to have a natural ability to learn spells, sometimes merely by watching someone else cast them.
Loynis Cleric
Human M Specialty: Prayer    Loynis has always believed that physical violence was never necessary as long as proper magic and prayer could be invoked. Amazingly enough, he made it work, and now is regarded as a successful, though unconventional, leader.
Caitlin Cleric
Human F Specialty: Gold    Before she was granted command, Caitlin was considered by some to be possessed by evil spirits. Despite these claims, donations to her church were unsurpassed when she was still in the church's ranks.
Mephala Ranger
Human F Specialty: Armorer    Trained in the ranks of the Erathian Military, Mephala was a genius when it came to using terrain to her advantage in battle. She resigned her commission several years ago, preferring the quiet serenity of AvLee to the bustle of the cities of Erathia.
Ufretin Ranger
Dwarf M Specialty: Dwarves    It is unusual to see a Dwarven Ranger, but for Ufretin the skills came naturally. He has become an icon to the surface-dwelling dwarven population, and a natural born leader among all dwarvenkind.
Jenova Ranger
Elf F Specialty: Gold    Jenova's kindhearted nature has made her well liked throughout much of Erathia. Her beguiling charms have allowed her to raise money for whatever cause she chooses to follow.
Ryland Ranger
Human M Specialty: Dendroids    Ryland was the first (and to date, the only) human ever fully accepted by the Circle of Elder Dendroids as a Ranger of AvLee. Some joke that he was once an Elf, but that he was killed and accidentally reincarnated into a human's body.
Thorgrim Ranger
Dwarf M Specialty: Resistance    Orphaned as a child, Thorgrim was raised in the northernmost forests of AvLee. He became known throughout the land for his exceptional ability to resist magics of all kinds.
Ivor Ranger
Elf M Specialty: Elves    Ivor's lineage can be traced back nearly to the Silence. Though bred as nobility, he has always been a hothead, preferring to lead an attack rather than wait to be attacked. His brashness has so far kept him alive.
Clancy Ranger
Dwarf M Specialty: Unicorns    It was by pure accident that Clancy discovered he could communicate with Unicorns, but this unique ability has served him well as he worked his way through the ranks of AvLee's Military Elite.
Kyrre Ranger
Elf F Specialty: Logistics    Kyrre served as a scout during the initial defense of AvLee from the Kreegan attacks. Her ability to navigate difficult terrain allowed her to excel in her duties.
Coronius Druid
Human M Specialty: Slayer    Coronius attended the University of Erathia for one semester before he realized that academics were overrated. He left Erathia for AvLee, finding a Druid who could teach by example.
Uland Druid
Dwarf M Specialty: Cure    Uland spent a great deal of his life as a battlefield healer before choosing to follow the path of a Druid, but the lessons he learned serving in the military have made him into an excellent leader today.
Elleshar Druid
Elf M Specialty: Intelligence    Elleshar is perhaps the brightest student of magic ever seen in AvLee. If he maintains his abilities over the next several decades, he will likely be the youngest Druid ever to be accepted into the Circle of Elders.
Gem Druid
Human F Specialty: First Aid    Gem was one of the greatest Sorceresses that Enroth had ever seen, serving King Roland Ironfist during the Succession Wars. Shortly after Roland had secured the throne of Enroth, Gem left for Erathia, finding a new home in AvLee.
Malcom Druid
Dwarf M Specialty: Eagle Eye    Malcom is one of the few Dwarves to show a natural aptitude for magic. Often he can learn new spells merely by watching someone else cast them just once. He was quickly pressed into service defending AvLee from the Devils of Eeofol.
Melodia Druid
Elf F Specialty: Fortune    Melodia may not be the most highly skilled Druid ever seen in AvLee, but she is certainly the luckiest. Even in the face of insurmountable odds she has managed to achieve miraculous victories. Troops gladly volunteer to serve in any army she leads.
Alagar Druid
Human M Specialty: Ice Bolt    Rumored to have once lived among the Vori Snow Elves, Alagar's command of the element of Water, especially ice, is unsurpassed. He has served AvLee since before the Kreegan invasion.
Aeris Druid
Elf M Specialty: Pegasi    Aeris is one of the best animal handlers in all of AvLee. He can sense ideal pairings between elves and pegasi which have made him one of the most sought out Druids in the land.
Piquedram Alchemist
Human M Specialty: Gargoyles    Piquedram spent much of his schooling in Alchemy dealing with various types of non-valuable rock. It is no surprise, then, that in the service of Bracada he was able to improve upon the basic design of the Gargoyle.
Thane Alchemist
Genie M Specialty: Genies    No one really knows Thane's background, but he has been teaching Alchemy in Bracada for so long that not even the elders remember a time without him.
Josephine Alchemist
Human F Specialty: Golems    Josephine was the first to successfully animate a modern stone golem, creating a process that was much more sophisticated than that used for the gargoyle, on which her research was based.
Neela Alchemist
Genie F Specialty: Armorer    Neela is one of the strongest of her kind, being able to resist an incredible amount of punishment. She somehow is able to instill this resistance in the troops she commands.
Torosar Alchemist
Human M Specialty: Ballista    Though formally trained as an Alchemist, Torosar has always had an interest in battlefield and siege tactics, often studying texts on the subject of war more frequently than on the subject of alchemy.
Fafner Alchemist
Genie M Specialty: Nagas    It is said that Fafner became a genie over a millenium ago, when upon finding a genie bottle, wished that he become as powerful as the genie granting the wish. The wish was granted, and Fafner has served the leaders of Bracada ever since.
Rissa Alchemist
Human F Specialty: Mercury    Rissa was the first Alchemist to perfect the art of converting useless soft metals into mercury. Though now commanding her own army, she spends much of her idle time experimenting with other materials.
Iona Alchemist
Genie F Specialty: Genies    Iona proved long ago that she was more powerful than most of her kind, but her charming personality prevents those who serve her from being intimidated by her strength.
Astral Wizard
Human M Specialty: Hypnotize    Astral arrived in Erathia nearly ten years ago, and was quickly accepted into the Wizards' Guild in Bracada. His rise to power within the Guild ranks made some people joke that only magic could have brought him so much success so soon.
Halon Wizard
Genie M Specialty: Mysticism    Halon was a well respected hero in Enroth, but became so bored after the Succession Wars that he left to explore the world. He recently accepted a command rank in Bracada's military, hoping that it would give him something new to do.
Serena Wizard
Human F Specialty: Eagle Eye    The first time Serena cast a spell she nearly killed herself. She channeled so much magical energy into the spell that a Wizard in a neighboring town felt it. He quickly sought her out, bringing her to the Wizards' Guild so that she could learn to control her powers.
Daremyth Wizard
Genie F Specialty: Fortune    Daremyth should have been dead a long time ago. Her go-anywhere-do-anything attitude has put her in situations that she should have never survived, but somehow she comes through unscathed.
Theodorus Wizard
Human M Specialty: Magi    Theodorus is easily one of the best spellcasters ever seen in Bracada. As a result, journeyman mages often seek to learn from him, embarking on a pilgrimage of sorts in the hopes that they can bask in his wisdom.
Solmyr Wizard
Genie M Specialty: Chain Lightning    Solmyr was trapped in a genie bottle for over a millenium, and was so grateful to the human who finally released him that he accidentally swore to serve the man for eternity. As fate would have it, that man is Gavin Magnus, the immortal ruler of the Bracada Highlands.
Cyra Wizard
Human F Specialty: Haste    Cyra originally sought to learn magic so that she could cast spells on men to make them love her. She gave up that dream, however, when she discovered that she had real mystical talents that could be put to better use.
Aine Wizard
Genie F Specialty: Gold    Aine has lived in Bracada longer than most can remember, and is said to be one of the wealthiest heroes in the land. She must have wealth hidden somewhere, for her kind hearted nature causes her to regularly contribute large sums of money to whatever cause she chooses to pursue.
Fiona Demoniac
Human F Specialty: Hell Hounds    Fiona was a trainer of circus animals in eastern Erathia before the Devils invaded. She quickly proved to them that her control over animals extended to the always temperamental hell hounds, and she was immediately accepted into the ranks of Eeofol's armies.
Rashka Demoniac
Efreet M Specialty: Efreet    Rashka is one of the strongest and most feared of all Efreet. His leadership methods focus on intimidation as a method of motivation. So far, it has worked.
Marius Demoniac
Demon F Specialty: Demons    Marius was the mate of Calh for several years, finally splitting up when it became clear that Calh did not agree with her 'master plan' to rid the world of those disgusting, do-good woodland creatures.
Ignatius Demoniac
Human M Specialty: Imps    When the Devils arrived in Erathia, Ignatius realized that his only hope for survival was to join them. He has managed to convince them that he always serves some purpose, but fears that one day they will decide that they no longer need the help of a human.
Octavia Demoniac
Efreet F Specialty: Gold    It is said that Octavia could sneak gold away from a sleeping dragon, but she would have to, as she is constantly spending her wealth on anything that tickles her fancy.
Calh Demoniac
Demon M Specialty: Gogs    Calh was mated to Marius for several years, but it soon became clear that she was obsessed with the total destruction of, of all things, Dendroids. They split up, and Calh went on to have a glorious military career.
Pyre Demoniac
Human F Specialty: Ballista    No one knows Pyre's real name, but it is rumored that she was once a member of the Humanists, a foul cult bent on eradicating any non-human inhabitants of Erathia. Only she knows what motivates her to serve the Devils of Eeofol.
Nymus Demoniac
Demon F Specialty: Pit Fiends    Nymus was responsible for training Pit Fiends and Pit Lords for the attack on Erathia. Her combat skills nearly led Eeofol to complete victory, but the deal between the Kreegans and Dungeon Overlords brought the initial campaign to an early end.
Ayden Heretic
Human M Specialty: Intelligence    Originally a shaman, Ayden offered his services to the Kreegans, discovering a dark desire to one day rule his own kingdom.
Xyron Heretic
Efreet M Specialty: Inferno    Xyron seems to like fire even more than anyone would expect of an Efreeti, but Xyron delights in just about anything having to do with fire or lava.
Axsis Heretic
Demon M Specialty: Mysticism    Axsis showed a natural aptitude for magic at a young age, which makes things even more strange than normal, as demons rarely show a natural aptitude for anything that requires thought.
Olema Heretic
Human F Specialty: Weakness    Olema spent her entire life in Eeofol, but when the Kreegans arrived, she talked them into letting her serve as a guide to the land, and has since proven her ability to lead.
Calid Heretic
Demon F Specialty: Sulfur    Calid possesses an unusual (though useful) ability to sniff out hidden sulfur deposits. The Dungeon Overlords have used her on several occasions when collecting sulfur for their fearsome dragons.
Ash Heretic
Demon F Specialty: Bloodlust    Ash got her name during the initial attack on Erathia. Her forces managed to trap several dozen elves and dwarves inside a large wooden fort, which she blasted so completely with a spell that the entire structure 'powdered' in a cloud of ash, revealing several dozen very shocked occupants.
Zydar Heretic
Efreet M Specialty: Sorcery    When Zydar isn't in the field leading troops, he is studying new ways to increase the potency of his spells. While not the greatest of mages, he certainly shows more promise than any of his demon-kin.
Xarfax Heretic
Human M Specialty: Fireball    Xarfax served in the Erathian Military until he was captured while fighting the Kreegans in 1162 A.S. (After the Silence). The Kreegans, realizing the power within him, "reconditioned" Xarfax, turning him into a loyal and capable follower.
Straker Death Knight
Human M Specialty: Walking Dead    Straker chose the dark path of Necromancy, but it was soon discovered that his fighting skills by far outclassed his magical abilities. He serves now in the undead armies of Deyja, hoping to one day join the ranks of true Necromancers.
Vokial Death Knight
Vampire M Specialty: Vampires    Nearly four centuries ago Vokial ruled his own kingdom, but as time passed he grew increasingly bored with day-to-day responsibilities. He eventually gave up everything to return to the life of adventuring he much preferred. He is an elder even among other vampires.
Moandor Death Knight
Lich M Specialty: Liches    Moandor's charismatic style somehow stayed with him after he was transformed into a lich. Strangely enough, this provides him with the ability to lead and recruit new liches more effectively than any other hero.
Charna Death Knight
Human F Specialty: Wights    Charna was seduced by the temptation of the powers of darkness. Though her magical abilities will never allow her to be a true Necromancer, she is a more than effective warrior.
Tamika Death Knight
Vampire F Specialty: Black Knights    Tamika's superior combat skills have put her in a position of power within the military forces of Deyja. Besides merely leading troops, she is also responsible for training Black Knights and Dread Knights.
Isra Death Knight
Lich F Specialty: Necromancy    Isra may not be the greatest spellcaster in Deyja, but the armies she leads always seem to have a disproportionate number of skeletons compared to others.
Clavius Death Knight
Human M Specialty: Gold    Clavius's family was always prominent at the court of Deyja, holding a great deal of land and political power. Being the eldest son, Clavius was sent to serve in the military, just as each of the eldest sons in his family had done for generations. He serves willingly and well.
Galthran Death Knight
Vampire M Specialty: Skeletons    Over the years, Galthran has developed new methods of creating and commanding skeletons which provides him with a distinct advantage in combat.
Septienna Necromancer
Human F Specialty: Death Ripple    Septienna suffers from what many call 'wasted magic,' as she seems to draw more life energy from her victims than she transfers into her minions. Some claim that she keeps the residual energy for herself, which may explain why she does not appear to age.
Aislinn Necromancer
Vampire F Specialty: Meteor Shower    Aislinn has always preferred the feel of the earth over the sky, and many believe she can draw life from the ground merely by being in contact with it.
Sandro Necromancer
Lich M Specialty: Sorcery    Sandro first studied Necromancy under the tutelage of the wizard, and later the lich, Ethric. Sandro has seen nearly all of Enroth and Erathia, and now serves Finneas Vilmar, leader of the Necromancers of Deyja.
Nimbus Necromancer
Human M Specialty: Eagle Eye    When Nimbus was a child he had a small dog that eventually died of old age. Nimbus discovered that by sacrificing a small bird or other creature, he could resurrect his pet, a feat which he repeated each time the dog died. Little did he realize that he was already exploring the beginnings of Necromancy.
Thant Necromancer
Vampire M Specialty: Animate Dead    No one is really sure how long Thant has been alive. Some say he fought for Erathia during the Timber Wars, but fell prey to a Vampire during an all-night march through Phynaxia.
Xsi Necromancer
Lich F Specialty: Stone Skin    Xsi was one of but a handful of females deemed worthy to make the transformation into full lich. Xsi was selected because she possessed a unique ability to resist physical damage - a trick that has saved her more than once.
Vidomina Necromancer
Human F Specialty: Necromancy    At a young age, Vidomina showed promise as a great Alchemist, but was driven from Bracada when it was discovered that she had been using her skills not to animate inanimate matter, but to attempt to bring life to previously living creatures.
Nagash Necromancer
Lich M Specialty: Gold    Nagash was a powerful wizard before sacrificing himself to an 'eternal life' as a lich. He owns much land, though most of it now lies within the desolate borders of Deyja.
Lorelei Overlord
Human F Specialty: Harpies    When Lorelei was a child she wandered away from her home, disappearing into a network of caves. She was found and raised by a harpy hag, and eventually volunteered to serve the Dungeon Overlords shortly before the invasion of Erathia. She has no memories of her real parents.
Arlach Overlord
Troglodyte M Specialty: Ballista    Arlach is one of the few troglodytes who are actually trusted to lead the armies of Nighon. Arlach shows remarkable skill with the ballista, and is often called upon to wreak havoc upon enemy fortifications.
Dace Overlord
Minotaur M Specialty: Minotaurs    Dace was born into a warrior clan, learning to fight from masters who seemed older than time. He provides Nighon with exceptional leadership, especially when commanding other minotaurs.
Ajit Overlord
Human M Specialty: Beholders    Ajit studied carefully the works of Agar, the foolish wizard/scientist of Enroth who accidentally created the beholders and evil eyes which he now commands, training a 'better breed' to be used in combat.
Damacon Overlord
Troglodyte M Specialty: Gold    While Damacon has always been a bit of a pushover, even among other troglodytes, he can sniff out gold almost without trying. He will donate gold to any cause willing to allow him to lead.
Gunnar Overlord
Minotaur M Specialty: Logistics    Gunnar served first as a scout for the Dungeon Overlords, then as a guide and bodyguard to various high-ranking officials, before finally being granted command of a garrison force on the rugged Nighon borders. What he lacks in brains he makes up for in instinct.
Synca Overlord
Human F Specialty: Manticores    Synca was originally an aboveworlder, and though she loyally serves the Dungeon Overlords she really prefers the great outdoors to the dank, cramped spaces of the caverns of Nighon.
Shakti Overlord
Troglodyte M Specialty: Troglodytes    Though eyeless, Shakti has amazing vision when it comes to battlefield tactics. His Troglodyte hordes are feared the world over, especially in the dark tunnels of Nighon.
Alamar Warlock
Human M Specialty: Resurrection    Alamar served Archibald Ironfist during the succession wars, and was barely able to escape Enroth following Archibald's defeat. He has since taken up residence in Nighon where he secretly serves the Dungeon Overlords.
Jaegar Warlock
Troglodyte M Specialty: Mysticism    It is strange to see a troglodyte Overlord, and stranger still to see a troglodyte Warlock, yet Jaeger has proven to be a skilled magician. He claims that daily meditation is the secret to his success.
Malekith Warlock
Minotaur M Specialty: Sorcery    One would expect a minotaur to be a fierce warrior, but Malekith wields magic with a fury that rivals the strength of the land's best mages.
Jeddite Warlock
Human M Specialty: Resurrection    Some say that Jeddite has seen the face of Zenofex, but many contend that since Jeddite is still alive, the rumor of a meeting could not possibly be true. Jeddite has never confirmed nor denied the rumor.
Geon Warlock
Troglodyte M Specialty: Eagle Eye    Much of Geon's magical skills come from his ability to see into the minds of other spellcasters, reading their thoughts as they invoke their powers, and in many cases learning to cast the spell himself.
Deemer Warlock
Minotaur M Specialty: Meteor Shower    Deemer nearly had to be killed as a young adult, as his magical abilities were so out of control that he was a threat to himself and those around him. He has since learned to control his powers, and is more than a formidable foe in combat.
Sephinroth Warlock
Human F Specialty: Crystal    Sephinroth claims to be the illegitimate child of King Gryphonheart. His refusal to acknowledge her has served to fuel her hatred against the Throne of Erathia, which she one day hopes to claim for herself. Having joined the ranks of the Warlocks, she is the first (and for a long time, only) known female ever to bear that title.
Darkstorn Warlock
Minotaur M Specialty: Stone Skin    Darkstorn challenged his way through the ranks of warriors of Nighon, secretly using magic to ensure he won each battle. Once in a position of power, he finally revealed his true powers. None have challenged him since.
Yog Barbarian
Human/Genie M Specialty: Cyclops    Yog studied for many years with the Wizards of Bracada, but he was often found reading texts on war rather than those on magic. The Duke of Krewlod offered him a military command, allowing Yog to happily use his knowledge of war.
Gurnisson Barbarian
Goblin M Specialty: Ballista    It is unusual for a Goblin to rise to any sort of position of power, but Gurnisson demonstrated a natural aptitude in Ballistics that quite literally launched him into a successful career as a hero for hire.
Jabarkas Barbarian
Ogre M Specialty: Orcs    Being the eldest son of Duke Boragus, Jabarkas knows that he will one day rule the lands of Krewlod. Like his father, he has learned that the best way to achieve his goals is through conquest.
Shiva Barbarian
Human F Specialty: Rocs    Shiva is the youngest of six daughters in a family of circus animal trainers. Unhappy with the prospect of spending her entire life in the family business, she left the circus to join the Krewlod military as a mercenary, a business that she has excelled at.
Gretchin Barbarian
Goblin F Specialty: Goblins    Not only is Gretchin an excellent leader, but all who follow her will tell you the same thing - she's like having another mom who can take care of you.
Krellion Barbarian
Ogre M Specialty: Ogres    Krellion originally joined the army as a prizefighter, and became so well known that his fans insisted he be made to lead them into battle. While probably not the smartest decision, Krellion has proven to be an exceptional leader, especially among ogrekind.
Crag Hack Barbarian
Crag Hack
Human M Specialty: Offense    A decorated hero in Enroth, Crag Hack became bored with his home, deciding to seek out a new life in Erathia. He boldly set sail for this new frontier, and was delighted to find a land in turmoil where his skills could be best put to use.
Tyraxor Barbarian
Goblin M Specialty: Wolf Riders    Tyraxor himself was a wolf rider captain, having finally joined the ranks of Krewlod's heroes after sniffing out a Tatalian ambush during a long march along the border of the two nations.
Gird Battle Mage
Human F Specialty: Sorcery    Gird learned most of what she knows from the Shaman of her home town. It is assumed she would have taken his place, but she was taken from her villiage when the Magi of Krewlod conducted a search for children who could wield magic.
Vey Battle Mage
Ogre M Specialty: Ogres    An Ogre Mage himself, Vey has proven himself time and again that his command skills are unparalleled. Should the Duke's son ever falter, Vey would be considered the top candidate to succeed the throne of Krewlod.
Dessa Battle Mage

Terek Battle Mage
Human M Specialty: Haste    Terek spent several years as a strong-man in the Circus of the Sun, challenging spectators to see who could throw large rocks the furthest. One day he lost, and was run out of the Circus, but the man who had beaten him recruited him for the Krewlod Army.
Zubin Battle Mage
Goblin M Specialty: Precision    Zubin was once chief of a tribe which fought against Duke Boragus. When peace was finally attained, he was offered his own command within the armies of Krewlod.
Gundula Battle Mage
Ogre F Specialty: Offense    Orphaned at birth, Gundula was raised as a daughter to Duke Boragus. Upon learning that he was not her true father, she joined the military, hoping to die an honorable death in battle. It hasn't happened, and she has become a feared leader in the military.
Oris Battle Mage
Human F Specialty: Eagle Eye    Oris did not show much promise as a mage early in her career, but her uncanny ability to learn nearly any spell she sees cast has made up for any apparent lack of magical skills.
Saurug Battle Mage
Ogre M Specialty: Gems    It is believed that Saurug once studied alchemy in an attempt to make himself wealthy. Though unsuccessful, his magics have made him of great value to the armies of Krewlod.
Bron Beastmaster

Drakon Beastmaster

Wystan Beastmaster
Lizardman M Specialty: Lizardmen    Wedded to the eldest daughter of King Tralossk, Wystan is the next heir to the throne of Tatalia. Until then, he is content to serve and learn from the King until the time is right for him to kill his mentor and assume the throne.
Tazar Beastmaster

Alkin Beastmaster
Gnoll M Specialty: Gorgons    King Tralossk never really liked Alkin, but gave him his own command in the hopes that he would one day get himself killed. That never happened, and Alkin has led a long and glorious career, much to the displeasure of the King.
Korbac Beastmaster
Lizardman M Specialty: Serpent Flies    Korbac became known to the humans of Erathia as the 'hero who saved the scholar, Xanthor.' However true this might be, Korbac has proven his bravery on more than one occasion in the service of Tatalia.
Gerwulf Beastmaster

Styg Witch
Lizardman F Specialty: Sorcery    The eleventh daughter of Tralossk, King of Tatalia, Styg turned to witchcraft when it became clear that she would never ascend the Tatalian throne with ten heirs in front of her.
Andra Witch
Human F Specialty: Intelligence    Before King Tralossk would allow Andra, a mere human, to lead one of his armies, he subjected her to a series of trials that would test her knowledge. She never missed a single question, and the King had no choice but to accept her.
Tiva Witch
Gnoll F Specialty: Eagle Eye    Tiva achieved her place as a hero by challenging those above her to tests of learning, proving herself as a faster study than any of her peers. She has achieved much success.
