The “Too cool for School” pretty boy. Cal seems to have an incredible amount of luck on his side, usually putting very little effort into things while still seeing positive outcomes. Because of this, he has developed and ego that takes the form of sarcasm and criticism. Cal is often referred to as sly, charming, and devilishly hansom. ’Tis no wonder Scobie dubbed him; Callion Candria, the bastard thief of Regaltia.
The “Village Idiot” of the group, often times speaking his mind with no regard for other peoples feelings. Troy is a very clumsy person and the odd time when things seem to be looking up for him, he manages to somehow screw it up for himself, leading him into unmanageable frustration. Scobie created for Troy; a Storm Elf Cleric, in an attempt to counter act his vulgarity and hopefully add some class into the party.
The strong, silent type. Tucker would be considered the most “level-headed” of the three room mates, preferring to solve problems using brain over brawn . However, when push comes to shove, Tucker’s “brawn” isn’t easily outmatched. Thus Scobie has deemed him “Hemdrir Stonebrother, Barbarian Warrior of the northern tundra.
Scobie is the socially inept neighbourhood geek with a borderline addiction to high fantasy. He masks his insecurities well behind his wise, all powerful role play character Scobarious the wild mage. Scobie’s knowledge of the game makes him a force to be reckoned with, and he is thought of by many as the greatest wizard in all of Abalexia.
Steven is the antagonist of our story, and a spoiled little brat. Which he channels well into his fantasy character Raminus, who is recognized throughout the land and the rightful heir to the throne. Raminus has it all; Charisma, Strength, Royal Blood. Unfortunately, he does not have common sense or a moral compass. Raminus believes in the old adage “Survival of the Fittest”, believing those of high birth to be The Fittest, and everyone else to be… well, NOT The Fittest. He connives, bribes and cheats his way into power.
Helena is no pushover. Although, in real life she is deaf, her character Kalenma is a very adept scout and a force to be reckoned with, in fact, she is among the highest ranking players in the game. In order to unravel Raminus’ plot , (and because of her relationship with Scobie) she decides to aide the boys in their journey to claim the grand prize.
