Description

Walter is a teenage boy who enjoys a popular fighting game. There is one particular character, a swordsman named Cadfael, who he is most skilled with. He even notes he feels a certain connection to the character, as controlling him has become so natural.

However, he does not know that Cadfael, and many others, actually exist in their own reality, which is quickly descending into chaos. Several have somehow managed to forge a connection with "our" world, being controlled by a "partner" who has a knowledge and perspective they don't, in order to get the advantage they need to survive.

But Cadfael is becoming weary and desperate to overthrow the evil instead of simply fighting for his life, and tries to contact Walter. He succeeds, and forms a much more literal connection between them.

Now with Walter able to control Cadfael in battle, their lives have become deeply entangled, and Walter finds himself involved in a fight to save this secret world.

This is where their adventure begins.

Description

(cad-fai-el)
Age: 19

A mysterious swordsman originating from a popular fighting game in-universe. Little is known about Cadfael's past. His rough appearance and reaction to Walter suggests he was a peasant, and still may not be well-to-do.

Normally quiet, but can be quite rash and endlessly inquisitive and curious. Though experienced in battle, he sometimes does not immediately realize his own limitations.

Acts as a foil to Walter, in that while both are very soft-spoken, Cadfael is open to the world and makes friends easily.

He also acts as his guide initially, exposing him to the parts of the world the game did not show.

Description

Age: 15

A young, inexperienced magic user. She is quiet and apologetic, but eager to learn and serve.

Much more overtly emotional than the rest of the cast, and easily worried. Strongly implied to have been failing at her craft for several years, which may account for her inferiority complex and eagerness to prove herself. She seems to have known Cadfael from when they where both younger, but hasn't seen him in years.

Description

(koo-rook)
Age: mid-30's ish?

A large bear-man that relies mainly on physical attacks. Acts as the “voice of reason” in the younger, more impulsive group.

He tends to be overly protective of his group, especially Lucille, which is reflected in his combat position as a damage sponge.
