Cast

Raz Stormwood (Gen Prock)
Archetype: Spy (r.Investigator)
Race: Human

A descendant of Sheriff Aesop Stormwood, Raz has recently opened a new branch of the family business in San Ricardo. Raz is probably best described as laconic, and her usual solutions are to either shoot something or just wait until everyone else shoots each other.

So far it’s given her a decent success rate.

Kel O’Reilly (Trae Dorn)
Archetype: Magic User (r.Haxor)
Race: Elf

A Jersey Elf and childhood friend of Raz’s, Kel was an orphan taken in and raised by the Stormwood family. He came out to San Ricardo to help set up the new office with Raz, but he’s not too happy about living on the west coast. Kel is the team’s hacker, and half the time spends missions just communicating over the custom comm system he cobbled together.

He also wants you to understand that he is not the receptionist.

William “Bill” Tiberius Carpathia (Nick Izumi)
Archetype: Arch Mage (r.Magic User)
Race: Human

Bill is a wizard desperately in need of a job. The son of one of the greatest Mages of the modern age, Bill is riddled with anxiety and the creeping existential dread that he’ll never live up to the potential people kept telling him he had while growing up.

Bill is very proud of his telescoping wand, which he insists is necessary (but really isn’t). You just sort of want to give him a cup of cocoa and assure him that everything will be okay.

Even if it probably won’t.

Tristan Babbitt (Kyle Johnson)
Archetype: Driver (r.Thief)
Race: Goblin

Originally hired as a freelancer, Babbitt is the team’s resident expert on breaking and entering. He is very, very good at it… except for the times when he isn’t.

The team doesn’t actually know much about their Goblin coworker, mostly because rather than chat, Babbitt is usually the one actually getting to work and getting things done.

He’s got a pretty good vertical leap too.
