Meet the Characters

Meet the Mercenaries

"We’ve heard the old tales of a promise land and the songs of what’s to come. But the truth is, our goddess must be mad. She promised us paradise, we exist in hell. But we’re given a choice, a way out...”

The way out is through brutally elegant gameplay brought to you by DevCat. Meet each of the Mercenaries and find out what drives their loyalty to the Goddess and the quest for Erinn.  Each characters story reveals pieces of their lore, how they were drawn to the town of Colhen and the role they play in the fight against the Formors on the path to vengeance and vindication.

Lann - Original Character 2010

Lann specializes in dual-wielding bladed weapons, specifically Spears and Swords. His attacks are speedy, and in the battlefield, enemies are left breathless at his seemingly non-stop whirlwind of slashes and thrusts. Because he relies on speed, Lann starts out wearing light armor. As he gets stronger, he learns how to wear heavy armor without impeding his quick movements.

Lann hails from the northwest. He left his hometown when it was destroyed by Fomors and came to Colhen to join the Crimson Blade mercenaries. He stakes his entire identity on his ability to be victorious in battle.

Fiona - Original Character 2010

Fiona is a balanced warrior who wields a Sword and a Shield. She values defense, so she uses her shield to protect herself during combat and then strikes strategically when enemies aren't expecting it. She is able to wear heavy armor from the start and later learns to wear plate armor as well. When armed with her Hammer, nothing in her path stands a chance.

Fiona comes from the south. She treasures her privacy and boasts a solemn, serious personality, so no one knows how she came to join the Crimson Blade mercenaries. She rarely speaks about her past. Even as people marvel at her combat abilities, they can't help but wonder what secrets she's hiding.

Evie - October 2010

Evie is a delicate mage relying on her Mana Shields to protect her from danger. With her staff she can charge powerful attacks from a distance and or inflict great damage from her Scythe with just a snap of her fingers.

Evie relies on her magic and alchemy abilities to support others during combat. She wields a staff and is weak when faced with enemies up close, but from a distance, she can summon powerful golems, revive allies and use ancient magic to perform devastating attacks. She starts out wearing cloth armor but, with time and effort, she can learn to wear light armor as well.

Evie comes from the east. From her demeanor, it's likely she was raised in a noble family, but no one knows for sure. When asked, Evie just smiles and changes the subject. Despite her youth, Evie is a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

Karok - June 2011

Karok is a giant warrior demanding obedience from all with his battle pillar and cestus in tow.

Karok wields a colossal pillar to bludgeon his enemies into submission. As a giant, his considerable strength allows him to easily carry and throw huge objects. His massive size makes him slow, but it also grants him high defense and the ability to start with heavy armor.

Karok's pleasant and easygoing personality leads the people of Colhen to think he's from the south, though no one's sure exactly where. Some even say he's from a town of giants. Whatever you do, don't let his laidback personality deceive you, for on the battlefield, Karok is a force to reckon with.

Kai - July 2012

Kai is a swift and powerful warrior who welds a bow and cross gun. He is built for both long range and close battle. He can quickly dash to safety and is a versatile, fearless avenger in melee, arrow and gun attacks.

Little of Kai's past is known for sure, but rumor has it that his motivation to destroy the Fomors comes from the loss of a loved one. Kai is a brilliant archer driven by strong morals and a troubled past. When others would retreat, Kai rushes head-on into battle, flinging arrows with the ferocity of a madman.

Kai's athleticism allows him to zip around the battlefield, executing precise assaults and moving on before his enemies realize they're being attacked. His weapon can be adapted to any fighting situation in an instant, and his unique fighting style makes him an ideal candidate for solo & party play.

Vella - June 2013

Vell a is a swordswoman using Twin Swords or Chainblades to decimate her enemies.  She relies on well timed attacks and overwhelming speed to tear through her foes.

Little is known of this dominant mistress of the blade sent from across the seas. She spent her childhood by the ocean, but the rest of her past is veiled in mystery. She slices through enemies with twin swords, swirling and gusting like a thunderstorm to decimate anything in her path, and even the strongest mercenaries struggle to match her expertise in combat. She won't stop until every last Fomor has fallen.

Vella is a versatile character who mixes equal measures of offense and defense to deal damage and leap across the battlefield, escaping enemy attacks without a scratch. She's capable of attacking even as she retreats, and her Counter-attack skill repels damage and positions her for fast retaliation. Watch Vella fight and you might catch glimpses of a blurred shape that strikes out like lightning, littering the battlefield with fallen Fomors.

Hurk - December 2013

Hurk is a mighty warrior welding a Greatsword. He launches head first into battle counting on agression and raw strength to achieve victory. He often risks great harm to himself to ensure the total devastation of his enemies.

Hurk, may look like a handsome young adventurer, but he hides a dark secret. He's often found in the shadowy corners of inns, brooding over a mug of ale. Other warriors know to avoid him- Hurk's temper is short, and sparking it means signing your own death warrant.

When he hears the sound of steel clashing against steel, Hurk becoms a bloodthirsty berserker. With his mighty greatsword, Hurk has been known to chop enemies in half, and cut through hordes of Fomors in a heartbeat.


Lynn is a graceful warrior who wields her spear like a brutal dance partner. Enemies can be seduced by her spear dance, however, there are sharp attacks behind her dance, and she is capable of defeating her enemies pretty easily.

Trained in the art of the spear from a young age, Lynn is a speedy and nimble fighter with a skillset that makes her adept at dodging, jumping and delivering quick, furious strikes that send monsters sprawling. She may be a princess, but Lynn has the heart of the warrior. [Read Lynns backstory]
