Meet the quirky cast of characters of Battle Gems!

In a land filled with adventure, treasure and perilous danger, you are going to need to make some friends. Below are a few of the people you will meet on your journey from the quaint town of Noobopolis to the volcanic fiery depths of Mount DeathSkullDoom.

 
Hero.jpg

Hero

He is an friendly, optimistic and weapon collecting obessed adventurer. His name is a tongue-in-cheek pun based on the fact that AE games often call the player of the game "Hero".
 
Omni.jpg

Omni

She is obsessed with facebook, twitter, instagram, blogs and pretty much every app she can access on her SmartSword 5. She is more likely to be posting a pic of the boss fight than fighting it! Sometimes... she plays BattleGems on her SmartSword. Which is weird... since she is a character IN BattleGems. Can you say... App-ception!
Thok.jpg

Thok

You do not know this yet... but he is going to be one of your all time favorite characters. As an extreme PvP brawler, Thok will fight anything... monsters, trees, rain, metaphorical concepts, his own big toe... (BattleGems NPC 1/6)
Grim.jpg

Grim

He is a Necromancer and master of the dark arts. Evil to the bone, he only finds satisfaction in the suffering and pain of others. We are not sure exactly WHY he is with our party of heroes... he probably has sinister scheme... or a secret. Nobody know what he really looks like under that skull mask.
 
Mist.jpg

Mist

She is a wizard. Possibly a sorceress. Possibly a mage. We are not sure. She is so mysterious! A mysterious girl shrouded in mystery! We know a few things about her though. She loves reading books. All sorts of books. Mostly ones about secrets.

 
 
 
Kiki.jpg

KIKI

She is the protector and friend of all animals. When she was a little girl, Kiki realized she had the ability to talk to animals. Her quest is to save the forest, and all the cuddly little critters that live there, from the evil that coming to destroy it.
 

 

QUESTION: Which of the characters is your favorite?

Sorry Comments are now closed for this post.
Eonaleth
Eonaleth: Definitely like Kiki and Hero. Thok sounds interesting and Grim will have to wait and see on that, hopefully we can find out his real identity.

YamiKakyuu: Being a Mage at heart, my first reaction is to Mist. Love her purple skin and the fact she has glasses. But Grim is SO STINKIN CUTE!!! Really I like them all, you can see their little personalities already. Nice work BG team.

Kaos Rules X
Kaos Rules X: I can't really pick a favorite. They all look awesome...even if Omni looks a bit obnoxious. To be honest, when I play this game, I just want Omni's little dragon thing. The thing looks like the perfect monster for cute yet able to rip apart enemies...while looking innocent yet.

Fife M
Fife M: I have a soft spot for Hero, because it sooo reminds me of pretty much all the characters in all the other AE games, and I LOVE Omni's little dragon, but I'm sure she'll be annoying in retrospect, but you never know. I believe that Grim will be the funniest of the lot, and I believe you when you say Thok will be our favorite character, when it comes to Kiki, I'm sure she will be quite the friend and supporter. And on first impression, I like Mist because she reminds me of a couple things- A. A typical Ravenclaw student, B. Raven from the Teen Titans TV series, and C. I just plain love Mages. So that makes Mist my favorite from a first impression. Overall-probably Hero, Mist, or Kiki. Does Omni's dragon have a name? Ooh, do Kiki’s animal friends have names? Does Mist's bird have a name? You should name one of the animals Mesaana. And you should name that little lavender faerie in the back with Kiki either Navi or Tael.

Tenzan
Tenzan: I think Thok for his rough and gruff attitude, and he looks like he's a fair fighter. I'm not one for using any caster-type characters. Any chance of fiend being in a there? If there is, I will be getting my hands on that fiend no matter what.

Tenzan: I should proofread my writings more. I meant that I like Thok, instead of think.
CorvusCorax
CorvusCorax: I like Omni for the potential of having an Odango Bazooka, but Mist is definitely my favorite!

Fife M
Fife M: Ah yes, I remember reading your story. I love the first-person scenario you wrote. I stink at first-person writing O.o so I am impressed right off the bat by anyone who can pull it off, which you did, that added to the fact that the plot that you set up left a great impression that it was a real story. I'm just gonna say, and you probably agree: THREE CHEERS FOR LACK OF WORD/CHARACTER LIMITS!And another three cheers for amazing writers ;D

phlynch: And grim's motive is obvious, with the heroes he can spread violence and terror and no-one is upset because they wanted the monsters dead any way.

Dwightt96313: Just from their short descriptions, I'd have to say that Omni is my favorite right now. She is unique from all the other characters in the fact that she is very ordinary by today's standards. Ironic, right?

Kalithar: I think I have a tie between Kiki and Thok. Just the animal aptitude thing for Kiki, and the back down from nothing for Thok. They're both amazing!
