Thinking about it, it feels somewhat surprising that the list is so short.  I mean, not counting flashbacks and the like, it's really just

  • April Ryan (kinda)
  • Crow
  • Roper Klacks
  • Brian Westhouse
  • ETA: White of the Kin

 

Am I missing anyone?  I can't quite vocalize why that's the case, but the fact that this is the list feels amazing. Especially when you consider that only Crow actually makes it to the end, and even then, there's a huge asterisk one can place next to that statement.  

 

(On that note, is there any place with a list of the series' characters, organized based the number of games they've appeared in?)

 

So let's talk about those characters lucky (or unlucky) enough to appear in all three games.  Is there anyone who you wish would have joined them?  Does the fact that this is the list make you happy, unhappy, confused, aroused, etc.?  What do you think it is about these characters specifically that made the creators want to use them for all three games?

If you dig the reborn-reincarnation stuff you can squeeze in the White dragon reborn and Saga ;)

Benrime is also kind of sort of in all the three games. (only mentioned in Chapters)

I'd have the white dragon on the list. Saga... not so much.

Turns out Brian is really part of the core story line throughout the series, we just never quite realised it until now. Klacks was always the series more standard bad guy, plus hes an interesting character and quite funny.

Crow is actually just in the game for some comic relief and to give the character you are playing some one to have dialog with. The game is always trying to find ways to make him important so he can tag along.
As regards the plot lines, you could remove him and hardly notice. But obviously it would be lame as hell with no Crow. He actually makes a better side kick than most, as hes not following you on foot and getting in the way. He is also exempt from most situations that would cause a person issues (like being noticed, arrested, trapped or whatever). He can kind of disappear and come back as needed with out question marks as to were he went.

It is a short list however. Never noticed quite how short until now.

Following this logic we could also insert Emma. We know she's showing at a gallery too and hopefully we'll get to visit :)

 

EDIT: I so wish we could also see Charlie again!

Veto on Benrime!

 

And actually... according to Kickstarter promises... a future version of Dreamfall Chapters should actually make Emma one of those exclusive characters. :mellow:

 

/edit: Oh shoot, should read entire thread before answering. :)

I think the White Dragon can definitely be in that list. The second one we saw, that is.

 

She's a dragon baby in the first one, an important character in the second and a ghost in the third. All those are appearances.

I completely agree on that. :)
