Over the many years of my Wizard's journey I've met a LOT of interesting characters, some good, some bad, most weird... Kingsisle is pretty good at creaing unique and impressionable characters and you sure meet plenty as you smach and crash through the spiral on your adventure. Of these many characters I decided to make a list of my personal favorites. These guys for some reason retain my interest and I just like them (for better or for worse :P). Number one on my list...
I promise this says nothing about me as a person; but Morganthe is a VERY interesting person, even if she's absolutely terrible and violent and, uh, Evil? She's a classic villain with no motive but power and destruction, but she's also unhinged and I love a good psycho. I also think she has an interesting backstory, and backstory is what sells a character. In all of her forms, Morganthe does a good job being pretty evil, while still being fabulous. Spiders aren't my thing though.... that's for sure.
You can't go wrong with the eclectic bridge loving-fjord loving-cat thing Myrella Windspar. I love her comments in the housing tours, and though she has no actual plot in the story of Wizard101, she is important to me as a house lover and a cat lover. I love taking her tours just to hear her comments. In addition, she's now a legit character thanks to Housing Tours! Selfieeeee!
Long before Morganthe there was Malistaire. In the beginning he was just as villainous as Morganthe, and we chased him through world after world trying to stop him; only to find in Dragonspyre that Malistaire's largest motive was love, and sadness. All he wanted was his wife back. The Malistaire dungeon was so moving and interesting for me, and it's one of my favorite dungeons in the game. So yay for Mali!
Lady of the Lake
Any Storm Character is good in my books, but Lady of the Lake is epic in her own grounds. She's GIANT and powerful and she just sounds so epic! We onl see her for a short time in Avalon but I still find her awesome. I mean she gives you a giant rock/egg/thing with your name on it! How cool is that??
Memphis is probably the most obscure of the people listed, you see him very briefly in the BOXES event as the old fire school teacher, but he has no large role in the grand scheme of the game, he's likely dead by the time our wizards even enroll in Ravenwood. But when I met him I thought he was pretty cool looking, probably because of my love for Krokotopia.... But it makes me wish that we could meet other professors from Ravenwood, Pigswick, Dragonspyre, anywhere really. Teachers are cool.... Or at least mythical Aligators are.
Surprisingly this was difficult to do, because I meet so many cool characters while playing, and most of them only briefly. I alsos truggled with not putting Pirate101 characters in my list, which means you'll probably see someting go up on Un Petite soon... Thanks for reading, have a great week!
