The main characters
in Down to the Bones

Arin

Prince Arin

Nation: Skeletons
General:
 20 y/o, 1,75m, He/Him, Bisexual
Personality: positive, caring, naive, very trusting, clumsy
Voiced by: OfficialJT

Prince Arin is the youngest son of the current king, who rules mercilessly over the four remaining nations. Knowing that his son has a strong sense of justice, the king let Arin grow up in the castle far away from the poverty he creates. Only when the hunger and desperation of Ilias the mummy becomes too strong, Arin catches him stealing from the castle.

But even after consulting with his father, Arin doesn’t get any clear answer from him to why it was only food that was stolen from them. A servant explains Arin that they receive increasingly less taxes from the villagers. With a premonition he makes the decision to look into the problem himself and leave the castle for the first time in his life.

Ilias

Ilias

Nation: Mummies
General: 19 y/o, 1,70m, He/Him, Asexual/Gay
Personality: Frightful, careful, stressed, anxious
Voiced by: Sami Chen

Ilias belongs to the weakest nation of the kingdom. The mummies have no magical abilities whatsoever, which is why they have resigned themselves to doing simple village work since the beginning of time. They trade their cultivated food with other people and pay “security taxes” to the skeletons.

During the fight for the crown, which breaks out again every century, they are holding back in order not to be hurt. Ilias himself lives in a small hut in a forest near his home village. He turned his back on it at a young age. Shortly afterwards he met Luciel, who was as alone as he was. So they decided to look for a place to stay together.

Luciel

Nation: Vampires
General: age undefined, 1,60m, They/Them, Genderfluid
Personality: Confident, strong willed, rude, sometimes dismissive
Voiced by: Reed N. Donat

As a vampire Luciel is blessed with great physical strength. However, to their knowledge they are also the last vampire still alive and always in danger of being murdered. With the final victory over the crown, the skeletons made it their goal to completely eliminate their strongest enemies. Alone, Luciel has no choice but to hide and not be discovered in order to survive.

The loss of their people is reflected in Luciels initial distrust and almost hatred of Arin. With their snooty and egocentric nature, Luciel is generally a rather complicated contemporary. Only for Ilias they would walk through fire since both have found mutual support in each other.

Frappé

Nation: Ghosts
General: 18 y/o, 1,78m, He/Him, Demisexual
Personality: Clownish, identity crisis, instable, erratic
Voiced by: Vikram Rajan

In their childhood, Frappé and Kadens brother one day went missing out of nowhere. Even after a long search he was never found. The remaining brothers since then dedicate their lives to finding him. Since Frappé and Kaden are both ghosts, they have similar powers. Both can manipulate matter to their will. Frappè uses the matter to create clones of himself, which takes a huge toll on his psyche. He loses grip on reality and himself, explaining his erratic behavior.

The only one keeping him sane is his brother Kaden, who on the other hand uses matter to create bombs. Kaden sadly lost most of his hearing while exploring his powers as a child. The loss of their people is reflected in Luciels initial distrust and almost hatred of Arin. With their snooty and egocentric nature, Luciel is generally a rather complicated contemporary. Only for Ilias they would walk through fire since both have found mutual support in each other.

Frappe

Kaden

Kaden

Nation: Ghosts
General: 20 y/o, 1,72m, mostly deaf, He/Him, Straight
Personality: big heart, helpful, shy (because of communication)

Kaden is Frappés older brother and keeps the little sanity that’s left in him in check. He is very kind and careful, the exact opposite of Frappé.

Sadly he lost most of his hearing to an accident with his own bombs back in his childhood. That’s why he has difficulties communicating and relies on his chaotic brother to do the talking.

Elane

Elane

Nation: Witches
General: 25 y/o, 1,75m, She/Her, Bisexual, Trans
Personality: Energetic, powerful, protective, overzealous, stubborn
Voiced by: Maya Ann

Elane is one of very few witches. While growing up, she and her parents were well respected (they took it as respect, mostly it was fear for their strength). Despite being very powerful, witches were never interested in ruling over others so they didn’t participate in fighting over the crown.

Instead, Elane early started to experiment with magic, energy and life itself. Her main goal is unclear, but bringing inanimate things to life is one of her main powers. Elane knows her strength, which sometimes results in her being overconfident.
