My other Dragonfable heroes
I mentioned before that I have a full account of characters on Dragonfable. I want to share them too, but since they’re all not as developed as the Varsen siblings, being much more secondary, and I don’t want to spam the tag with each of them individually, I’m gonna put them all in one big post, under the Read More.
The tallest and buffest of all of my characters. Despite his intimidating look and heavy armor, Leonas is actually the softest bean. A gentle giant who’s not always the smartest in the room, but is still a genuine and friendly person (so yes, a himbo). He’s always willing to give you the softest hugs if you ask, which is quite a feat to manage for someone in heavy armor.
Despite being in the Rose, he only wishes to help people and hopes to protect the innocent from harmful magic. He always puts focus on his large Rose-emblazoned shield, hoping to use it to defend civilians. He’s also very good with kids (I have this vivid mental image of him just piggybacking a bunch of kids on his back from a village the Rose just defended while the rest of the Rose is conducting business with the adults of the village.)
He absolutely refuses to ever take his helmet off. Most people assume he’s hiding scars or disfigurement behind it.
A no-nonsense, task focused Water Elf Battle-Priestess. Aelirria was once one of the guardians of the water orb’s tower, before falling prey to Kathool’s corruption. She was freed of this corruption by the end of the water orb saga, but still suffers from PTSD and nightmares about it, the latter of which always causes panic attacks worrying Kathool is returning. Following those, she will often swim up to the surface, spending the night on a small island she discovered, hoping dry land will keep her safe from Kathool. This fear of Kathool’s corruption is one of the only thing she will visibly show fear at.
She’s a skilled tactician and warrior, able to combine melee fighting skills with water magic in combat. (the riftwalker armor is mostly there because it felt like it could be used as an elven armor too)
In book 3, she now mostly spends her time underwater, helping her people rebuild and keeping them safe from the Rose’s incursions. She only ever goes up to the surface to help if the threat becomes a risk for them too (like during the Calamity Saga, where she helped Thallen during the finale)
A vampire blood-mage and a proud member of Safiria’s court. Lysander’s outward relaxed and uncaring attitude hides a vicious and aggressive combatant when provoked.
So far, Lysander is one of my least developed character, although I wish to work on him a bit more. This post might be updated once I have more on him
A Chaosweaver from Azaveyr, Sanya started off as an orphaned student in Edelia, before being kicked out and branded a chaosweaver after an incident in which she violently attacked a classmate using soulweaving, apparently in retaliation for her friend’s bullying.
In order to survive, she first turned to theft, being a local street rat with the help of her soulally, Wisp, the Wind-attuned Elemental Spirit of Mischief. She eventually turned to bounty hunting to make meets ends. The process slowly corrupted Wisp, whose mischief went from playful to tormenting towards those she saw as enemies. (Wisp is still friendly and playful with her friends however)
She’s not outright good or evil, being a lot more morally in the middle. She’s like Circe in a sense, although she keeps a much more professional demeanor. She’ll help whoever gets her enough money to survive. The only rule in her bounty hunting : no harming children.
Sanya most often projects a silent and tough exterior, a sharp contrast to her bubbly and excitable soulally. However, she has shown a softer side towards children. (which made me realize after that I basically made her like the Mandalorian. Tough on the outside, but give her an orphaned child and she will do everything to defend them. That wasn’t on purpose.)
I remember when I first played P5, the fight against Goro always made me feel really sad and I could never quite understand why but then I watched Crystaahhl play P5R and she said "It's like that one friend that you want to save but you can't no matter what you do because they're so far gone" and it just suddenly clicked that that's why it made my chest hurt. Cause deep down, you know Goro wants to be saved but he's so far gone down this dangerous path and so insistent on taking care of himself that he refuses help. It just hurts, dude, it hurts.
I agree w much much all of this yes and esp why it hurts sm to see him just. emotionally shatter in his boss fight (also it was EXTREMELY funny to watch crystaahhl’s progression into becoming a goroboy fjkghkjd) but i personally don’t think it was the desire to be saved (or at least not consciously, as the thing goro represses the most is really his own diminished agency) as much as it was the desire to not only have that friendship w akira, but the genuine connections he shared with other people.
That support system and that ability to show the truth of himself to other people - something goro was unable to do for a myriad of reasons but a big one is his desire to be loved, and thus cultivation of his DP personality to encourage that, all while hating people for liking it in the first place - these were things he didn’t only envy in akira, but desired for himself as well,
