Akzeres, Played by Owen Seyler
Belief: Thulsa Doom and the High Inquisitor conspire with demons; I must prove their corruption to the ruling families so pressure may be brought upon Kordaava to restore the temples of RA, Osiris, Isis, and Horus to put their evil in check.
Belief: The Oracle revealed I am one of Isis’s chosen who must serve Her will to earn grace in the Afterlife; therefore I will share my vision with the mystical order of Osiris and aid them in their quest to reassemble the Divided God.
Belief: The gods have seen fit to preserve the Holy Order of the Scarab and send one of its knights to me; It’s divine will that I guide this holy warrior to complete his training, find his sacred blade, and restore the Order to its rightful status.
Instinct: As an ordained exorcist, I instinctively recognize the signs of possession and alter my behavior to avoid alerting demons of my divine powers.

Mohareb al-Aktari, played by Christian Moore
Belief: Destiny. My eventual return and (hopeful) success at the Oesireum will herald the God’s return. I must protect my priest for this to happen. If he dies I will attack Set’s minions in a suicide mission.
Belief: Self-reliance. If I attempt something and don’t have training, I will try to learn that skill. For those who are generally unskilled or are dilettantes I exchibit utter contempt. I can’t understand those who have no ideology.
Belief: I carry the shards of my father’s Scareb Blade, searching for the one who will let me know it can be reforged. The reforged blade will represent a turning point for Osiris return, and for Akzeres and I as a team.

Yves Luransk, played by Sean Lashgari
Belief: Vinnitsa will one day be an independent kingdom with myself as the rightful king. To do this I will need military strength. I will use my ludis to develop a strong force of gladiators.
Belief: My legitimate claim to the throne of Vinnitsa flows from divine sanction. I will help the Church of Osiris by harboring their presence here so that when the time is right I can count on their support.
Belief: Baron Romanov has sworn an oath to destroy me and kill my beloved Rhiena. I will kill him first.
Instinct: As a Baron when around women I act like a pig, titled, they are my servants! This keeps me safe from the other Barons suspicions that my truth is to help them.
Instinct: When trouble happens I use my Charisma to ease any hostility towards me or the situation I am in with others.
