FireHeart - Characters List Jul 2009

FireHeart - Legend of the Paladins

Character List (Description only) - Update Jun 1, 2009

The Twelve (Plus One) Paladins of Light

Note: We've changed three names:

Andreas Marvellini to Paolo Marvellini (Reason: Too many "a" names)

Agustina Vyrakova to Vera Vyrkova (Reason: The same as Andreas)

Dejan Pavlovic to Janna Pavlovic (Reason: Add some more chicks in the story and avoid the same name as the real person whenever possible)

  1. Robert Chandler

Robert is indifferent, ‘cool’, serious, and full of determination, a personality formed by the traumatic incidents of his youth. For him, it’s very difficult to trust anybody. He even fears that someday his closest friend may stab him from behind. He prefers to focus to his disciplined life and training than women (he also had a traumatic experience with women). But several near-death experiences change his attitude and he can finally be a good leader to his hunting party and a great general of Lore. His prior obsession is to see orcs extinct from Aurelia, by his hands or another. His great loathing and vengeance towards the orcs earned him the nickname ‘Orcbane’ and the title master hunter in Lore.

  1. Cristophe Deveraux

A greedy, careless, reckless youth. He is truthfully a prince with no burden of the throne on him, being a second son, so to avoid conflict with his brother Alexis he leaves the palace with his cousin Carolyn to seek adventure and experience as monster hunters. In book one he is known as ‘Christopher’. But his encounter and adventures with Robert and his hunting party turns him from zero to hero. He is sometimes funny and irritating, but truthfully an intelligent and wise man fit for ruling and a very talented swordsman. The future Emperor Sage V of Arcadia.

  1. Alexis Deveraux

Alexis is a living enigma. He can be a great leader sometimes, but he seems to make wrong decisions and choices all the time. He once killed his opponent in a battle duel with a desperate move, cheating in order not to get killed instead. He often kills by mistake. Nevertheless, he is the apple of his father, Emperor Sage IV Marcus Deveraux’s eye, and viewed by all as a perfect man, excelling in every endeavor.

How far will he go to retain his honor and get the glory he deserves – even surpassing his forefathers’?

  1. Adler von Bachmann

As explained in the story, Viscount Adler von Bachmann is the man who likes to dominate, influence and control others. He’s not necessarily evil, but he’s obviously ambitious.

The facts that even the King of Borgia is within his influence and being the Grand Marshal of the Borgian Army form his hyper-arrogant and hyper-egoistic character. He knows no true friend – until he meets Don Hernan y Parvaez.

His positive traits are his resourcefulness and his ability to notice opportunities even in the most obscure manner. He is also a good negotiator (although many are proved better than him in this kind of field).

  1. Hernan y Parvaez

Don Hernan y Parvaez Besso Trinidad, a noble loyal to King Jaime of Escudia, Hernan repeatedly saved the country by doing secret missions as a secret agent in his noble, flamboyant disguise (just like James Bond in 007 movies). As a token of appreciation of his heroic feats, King Jaime awarded Hernan a sum of land worthy of a Marquis in addition of Hernan’s hereditary lands, and the body-part armor set of Eil’thanath.

Hernan’s only weakness is his reverence of beauty – especially in beautiful women. Although he already has a wife, a daughter and two sons, he still likes to seek adventures in distant lands just to meet and woo beautiful ladies (and deflower them, leaving his ‘mark’ on them if possible) with his charms. Unfortunately, his age and marital status, if known, makes him somewhat ‘repulsive’ for ladies with uncommon beauty and qualities.

  1. Kyflynn Windwalker

Unpredictable, irritating. Being an outcast dark elf (night elf), Kyflynn frequently finds himself in difficult situations. And sometimes his decisions to solve certain situations might be very controversial. His principles of 'Not killing good people' made him banished from his kindred, but it's not his privilege to judge who's good and who's bad, right?

He may laugh in critical situations and gets angry in happy times. He is the elf for himself: doing things the way he likes, as his heart pleases. He has no regard for decency, law and rules.

  1. Lavennia Iris

A typical show-off and a bit flirty (but is steady with one boyfriend at a time). Being an 80-year old elf on her first appearance in this story, Lavennia Iris acts bossy and show-off her talents to influence people and gain respect, because she doesn’t get it in Thyrine. She looks like a teenage elf, a bit under 16 in human age reckoning, but she already gets the thirst and hunger for adventure. She gets bored easily over monotonous works.

What she really seeks in life is love, which is rather seldom happening among fair Thyrinian elves.

  1. Carolyn Deveraux

She’s always precise and detail in anything – perhaps too much critical and logical – so that she’s like a fussy smart-aleck.

Truthfully, being resourceful and witty, Carol frequently gives out solutions for any problem, no matter how complicated it is.

Her Necklace of Luck makes Carol a rather daring daredevil. She frequently springs into danger and gets lucky every time, but in rare occasions that she gets injured or poisoned, she’ll be healed or cured 50% slower and the poison will work 50% slower – the side effect of that necklace. So, maybe Carol must learn to be more careful...

  1. Paolo Marvellini

Fatherly and good natured, this elderly dwarf always says, ‘It’s hard being a nice guy, but I like being nice and I like hard work, so there’s no problem.’

His love for family and his determination to help people with the craft he does best: healing collides with his brethrens’ principles and belief, so he learnt Vadisian and came back to his homeland with a new faith. His mission to bring cure and salvation to his people will cause him to do so many sacrifices: separated with his family, scorned by his brethrens, prosecuted by the leaders, and who knows what else next.

In spite of his sufferings, he stays calm and cheerful as usual. He is the ‘father’ of his hunting party. He cools things down when his much younger partners begin to heat up and quarrel with each other, with witty advices and sometimes mild jokes.

His dwarf name (real name) is Rollo Bigstumble. He has a wife, Uli Nockimble and two children, Ivor Bigstumble and Eni Bigstumble.

  1. Eidos Crydias

He is known as a typical opportunist. He supports people only if he can reap some benefit out of them. He is also a coward, often using his old age as an excuse to be exempt in difficult missions – a trait very unlikely for a true paladin, for sure.

Actually, people tend to “use” him instead because of his two talents: One, his superb Chronomancy (the magic that manipulates the flow of time and space), and two, his scientific expertise and Airship Aurora as his greatest masterpiece.

  1. Desmond Edmundsen

A blacksmith by trade, he is willing to leave everything just to travel around the continent with Vera Vyrkova, the attractive sorceress he once rescued. Their adventures get into an exciting turn with Kyflynn entering the picture.

Crushing the myth that “big guys have small brains”, Desmond is quite intelligent and wise despite of his extremely brawny figure. He even holds the principles of love and sacrifice, meaning that he’s willing to die to protect the woman he loves.

Wielding a great maul, then the great hammer Terra Nakroβ, he is a very formidable ally and an extremely feared adversity in every battle. As a berserker, he is unstoppable, earning him the name “The Thousand Gates Breaker”.

  1. Vera Vyrkova

If you think Robert is “cool”, then Vera is “ice cold”. She rarely shows any emotion, and people often mistake her as a mannequin or a golem. Actually, her eyes and ears work triple as her mouth, making her an excellent observer. She acts and speaks if necessary, and she seldom gets angry.

However, you really don’t want to make her angry, because if she does… things will get extremely catastrophic.

  1. Janna Pavlovic

Now here’s another outcast. This halfling (hobbit) likes to travel to distances because she is considered both a hero and an abomination in her village of Ekinmor, Edel Kingdom, Regia Confederation. She is gifted (and cursed) with an ability to change into three kinds of animals at will: wolf, eagle or dolphin – an animorpher.

Possessing exceptional reconnaisance skill and also a martial artist using either an iron claw or her bare hands, Janna is a very versatile warrior, despite her little figure and little physical strength.

She is quite cheerful, helpful with a good sense of humor, always ready to assist her comrades. However, in terms of making decisions, she tends to ask people’s opinions first and goes by the most reasonable suggestion.
