Tropes used in Skylessia/Characters include:

Harmony Duval

Maximillion Zwingley

The Duke of Fidona and one of the biggest idealists on the Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism. Probably also one of the most clearly heroic characters. Despite being 3rd Tier, he is constantly made fun of.

He's The Juggernaut, bitch!

Richter Vastor

A sage from Alacia specializing in Wind Magic, he wanders in search of knowledge. Loyal, honest and kind, to a fault, his Achilles' Heel is his embarrassment around females.

Syntyche Trevayne

A member of the Knights Celestia and one of the strongest people in the world. Former duchess of Goshen.


Ellis Nineveh

Sir Ellis on His Dark Throne

A young man of the Nineveh, a tribe of forest Vikings that are more or less stuck in Dark Age Europe. Brash, eager, and impossible to get along with, no matter how powerful he becomes he remains one of Skylessia's premier Butt Monkeys.

Mairenn Trenor

Mairenn and her prized bow, Soulsinger

A young woman from the Trenor clan, a small tribe in northern Arad'uun. She's generally calm and easy-going. One of the many women involved with Vadim Itzal.

Aria Schezobraska

Ian Cole

  • The Alcoholic: Used to be this after being betrayed by his country, but he got better and vowed to stop drinking again. He's had one drink since, and that was when he thought he was going to freeze to death in a blizzard.
  • Blue Eyes: of the icy and piercing variety.
  • The Captain: Was this in the Devlani military, before he was blacklisted as an insurrectionist.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Doesn't say much, but when he does it sometimes falls into this category.
  • Defector From Decadence: Starts speaking out against the oppressive government after a member of his batallion kills an innocent woman. It doesn't go very well.
  • Heroic BSOD: Experiences one while living in Valhassa after getting thrown overboard of a ship and left for dead. He gets better.
  • The Stoic: Mostly, but lately that's been changing as he's been dealing with Devlan directly.

Norville 'Banks' Banks


Veika Steinhart



Esperina Escalanza

Limius Tierne


Freya Lafayette

Marik Stavron


Andreas Valentine

Renoir Fasutoia

Samson Auberak

  • Actual Pacifist: He hates fighting and dreads the thought of killing, but mercenary work was the only real choice he had to earn the money he needs; as a result, he's become a very Reluctant Warrior.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's a compassionate guy, albeit with poor social skills, pacifistic, and has a background in medical training. He also knows how to prepare healing salves and poisons, is good at utilizing his surroundings and ascertaining weaknesses, and has enough skill and speed with both bows and swords to be able to hit them while running circles around you. It turns out that getting him mad really isn't a good idea.
  • Brainy Brunette: An uncommon male example.
  • Celibate Hero: He's not even one for contact as basic as holding hands. The thought of sex very much Squicks him out.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: He just can't pass up an opportunity to help out, even if it lands him in trouble.
  • Combat Medic: Although a mercenary by profession, his real talent lies in his medical training.
  • The Determinator
  • Fragile Speedster
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He doesn't view his skills or accomplishments as anything special and constantly berates himself as useless.
  • Heroic Spirit: His miserable self-image belies his real determination and inner strengths.
  • Honor Before Reason: He'll go out of his way to avoid killing his enemies, even if doing so would save him a lot of trouble in the end.
  • Iron Woobie: He spent most of his life getting constantly berated by his stepfather for everything he did, even taking the irrational blame for his stepbrother, Jeremy, getting sick, effectively destroying his self-esteem. Yet he still started training in swordsmanship and became a mercenary - an entirely ill-suited choice for his pacifistic nature - just so he could get the money to pay for a rumored treatment for his brother's paralysis, despite this decision resulting in his stepfather banning him from his own home until he could come back with fame and fortune. All to see Jeremy walk again.
  • Loyal Animal Companion: Diablo the Mauthe Doog.
  • Messy Hair
  • The Nondescript: In a setting with so many characters having distinctive traits that would set them apart in a crowd, Samson is remarkably unremarkable.
  • Parental Substitute: Callan acted as this in absence of his stepfather's emotional support.
  • Super Hearing: And it annoys him to no end.
  • Weak but Skilled: Sort of; he's got skill and speed on his side moreso than brute strength, but physically he's still not exactly a pushover.
