The Kingkiller Chronicle/Characters

    Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.


    Who are we.png   This page needs some cleaning up to be presentable.

    Some or all of these characters need descriptions. A list of tropes is not a description.

    Characters from The Kingkiller Chronicle include:

    Kvothe


    Denna


    Kvothe's Friends

    Simmon

    Wilem

    Fela

    Mola

    Manet

    Auri


    The Edema Ruh Troupe

    Arliden (Kvothe's Father)

    Laurian/ Lady Netalia Lackless (Kvothe's Mother)

    Abenthy

    Trip

    • Rule of Seven: Trip throws sevens on dice. This is not an example of Lucky Seven, as seven is not a lucky number to throw when playing dice (because it's only an average throw, and you can never roll doubles).

    Shandi

    Teren

    Tarbean

    Trapis

    Skarpi

    • Mysterious Past: Implied, based on his claim of connections and his evident light treatment at the hands of the Tehlin church despite his heresy.
    • The Storyteller


    The Masters

    Master Herma (The Chancellor)

    Master Elodin

    Master Kilvin

    Master Lorren

    Master Hemme

    Master Elxa Dal

    Master Arwyl

    Master Brandeur

    Master Mandrag

    Imre and the University

    Deoch

    Stanchion

    Anker

    • Won't Work On Me: Literally. Is able to resist Ambrose's powers simply by refusing to sell his inn.

    Devi

    Count Threpe

    Ambrose Jakis

    Puppet


    The Maer's Court

    Maer Rand Alveron

    • Too Clever by Half: Invoked, in those exact words, by Kvothe as narrator, besides being true

    Stapes

    Dagon

    Lady Meluan Lackless

    Caudicus

    • Meaningful Name: Probably a double subversion. The similar-sounding caduceus (☤) is a symbol often used in America for the medical industry. However, this usage is historically incorrect: the caduceus is rather a symbol of commerce, and is considered inappropriate as a symbol of medicine because commerce often involves theft, deception, and death.

    Breadon

    Lord Praevek

    • Gossipy Hens: Most of the Maer's Court is this, but Lord Praevek is the most gossipy of all of them.


    The Mercenaries

    Dedan

    Hespe

    Marten

    Tempi


    The Adem

    Shehyn

    Carceret

    Vashet

    Penthe

    Celean

    Magwyn

    Legendary characters

    May or may not be fictional in universe.

    Taborlin the Great

    Iax/Jax

    Illien

    Gibea

    Teccam

    Aleph

    • Meaningful Name: In universe, Aleph is either a god or the first person to discover naming, depending on whose story you believe. In real life, aleph is the the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, but in mathematics it is used as the symbol for transfinite numbers (essentially different kinds of infinity).


    Newarre (scenes from the framing device)

    Chronicler

    Bast

    Cob

    Aaron

    • Smarter Than You Look: He looks big and dumb (as Bast notes) but proves himself more capable than anyone in town.
