With the fantasy genre rife with archetypes and tropes, I'm kind of curious to see what names pop into folks' heads for some of the standard roles. For an Achaean twist, I've added a few specific to the game. My answers in italics.
Who do you think of when you imagine...
The honorable knight:
Aerek. Maybe Anedhel, if he'd cut his hair.
The wise old wizard?
The unwilling hero?
The cunning villain?
Taraus. Amunet. Kaevan.
The rogue wanderer?
Shayde. Or Kaiu.
The bookish scholar?
The guy who blows up your party for no reason?
Tesha will get you murdered and keep you optimistic all at once.
The mage driven mad by power?
The bard who can make you laugh and cry in a single song?
I play in Targ, idk what a bard is
The feistiest dwarf?
The gentlest giant?
Greys because he refuses to ever not be in dragonform
The crazed barbarian?
The noble thief?
Antidas because he's the only thief I can think of.
The Lord or Lady of noble birth?
Havyn acts like a damn classy lady.
The common peasant?
Jinsun. Or Tibitha, because she's a farmgirl.
The scariest Divine?
Aurora because she will murder me and Artemis because I live in constant threat of earthquakes IRL.
The most eligible Undead bachelor?
Ugrach? Moar like Ooo-grach!
Aurora says, "Are you drunk, Aodfionn?"
(The Targossian Academy): Halos says, "Go on! I need to feel the wind in my hair!"
