Main Characters


Matthew Azure

Height: 6'4"
Species: Short haired quilar
Gem Specialty: Elemental - Wind Manipulation
Rank: Golden Guardian
First Appearance: Red Wounds

Matt is one half of the Golden Guardian team in the Defender army. Matt's wind manipulation abilities allow him to be the more offensive side of the team, so if a mission gets hot, Matt's usually the one who helps get them out of a jam. Matt loves his wind manipulation abilities, even though it's one of the weaker elemental abilities that Gems can manifest.

Isabelle Gildspine

Species: Short haired quilar
Gem Specialty: Healing
Rank: Golden Guardian
First Appearance: Red Wounds

Izzy is one half of the Defender's Golden Guardian team, a team designed to be the first to investigate dangerous situations and help the Defenders decide if a full intervention is needed. The Golden Guardians are reputed to be the most powerful Defenders on planet Zyearth, but Izzy feels like this is highly exaggerated and often feels inadequate in battle. To make up for her lack of Gem power, Izzy is a hobby body builder. She uses her physical strength as a means to keep a strong presence.

Supporting Characters

Lance Tox

Species: White Wolf
Gem Specialty: Ice Fabrication
Rank: Master Guardian
First Appearance: Red Wounds

Lance Tox is the most recent Master Guardian of the Defenders and the Head of State in the small country of Zedric on the continent of Yelar on Zyearth. Lance is considered to be one of the most successful Master Guardians in the Defender's history because of his policies and his prowess in war. Lance is old for a Master Guardian, just over three hundred years old and in his final century of life, which means his senses are slowing down, hence the glasses.

Dr. Jaymes Fogg

Height: 6'0"
Species: Quilar
Gem Specialty: Fire Fabricator
Rank: Gem Specialist and Biologist
First Appearance: Black Bound

Dr. Jaymes Fogg is the Defender's Gem and biology specialist. He is also Matt and Izzy's foster father, who took them in after their parents died. Jaymes came to the content of Yelar from a small island archipelago on the other side of the planet and he speaks in broken English because of this. He's very dedicated to his adoptive children, though he's also dedicated to his work. He likes to spend his spare time working on personal biology projects. He has fire fabrication powers, though he has never spent much time developing it so his powers are rather weak.

Height: 6'1"
Species: Cheetah
Gem Specialty: Electricity Fabricator
Rank: Robotics Expert
First Appearance: The Stolen Guardian

Dr. Aric Tessla is a robotics specialist, dealing mainly with energy and robotic prosthetics. He's very skittish and often struggles with the formality of the army. He's a brilliant roboticist however, and is responsible for a lot of the more recent prosthetic replacement technology. He has very little trust in his own abilities, however.

Sami Girsougon

Height: 5'2"
Species: Arctic Fox
Gem Specialty: Fire Fabricator
Rank: Grandis Chief (Commissioned Officer)
First Appearance: The Stolen Guardian

Sami is a young Defender eager to prove herself. She's one of the few elemental users in the Defender ranks, and one of only seventeen fire fabricators. A bit of a pyromaniac, she loves her element and she often has to fight to keep herself in check when using her power full strength. Sami is a bit of what Matt and Izzy call a "stiff", a Defender who sticks closely to the Defender army rules, but once she gets to know whoever is in her company, she's more inclined to loosen up.

Darvin Wendigo

Roscoe Wendigo

Height: 7'2" (with antlers)
Species: Stag
Gem Specialty: Earth Manipulator
Rank: Chief (Commissioned Officer)

Roscoe has been a Defender most of his adult life, but he didn't gain his Gem's specialty until several years after he had left the Academy. Roscoe is very active. Running is one of his favorite activities. During his high school years, he met Matt Azure and Izzy Gildspine and he courted Izzy during their time at the Academy. During one of his early missions on Zyearth, he came into contact with Ouranos of the Athanatos and was transformed into a Cast. Currently he's stuck in this state.

Charlotte Azure

Height: 5'6"
Species: Quilar
Gem Specialty: None (Gem Sharing)
Rank: None
First Appearance: Black Bound

Charlotte is Matt's older sister and is fiercely protective of him. She and Matt came to Zyearth after their parents died on Earth during a horrible genocide. Unlike Matt, however, she was not adopted by Jaymes Fogg, but instead was reluctantly adopted by her uncle Walt Azure. She grew up on Walt's lavish estate, though her uncle was never a good father figure, so she felt alone growing up. She does not approve of Matt's decision to become a Guardian, because she's worried about the short lifespans most Guardians have, but she supports Matt the best way she can.

Very little is known about the Black Cloak. He's got quite a reputation on Earth among the Athanatos, but his species, age, Gem powers, and most everything else is a mystery. It's often speculated that the Black Cloak could in fact be several different people, as several different eye colors have been reported in his various sightings.
