Like many RPGs, The Pale City places an emphasis on its characters comparable to a novel. Here some of the most important you’ll meet as you explore the world!


The player-character, recently returned to life as a mercenary. No one would ever call him a hero. Vasek is cold, practical, consumed with anger at the world and himself. He speaks with a blunt, brutal honesty, and doesn’t hesitate to kill.


The worst kind of killer. It would be easy to despise him, if only Ognjen did not remind Vasek so much of himself.


A mercenary who seems (unthinkably) to have training in magic. She’s likable and friendly, but dangerous—Vasek still doesn’t know if he can trust her.


The most feared criminal in the Sink, and the most dangerous. They say he can be two places at once; that he hears things no one can possibly hear; that there is nothing more dangerous than owing him a debt.
