Main Protagonist And Supporting Characters

Firstly, let’s talk about the characters that we get introduced to, right as the game starts. Namely, these characters are:

  • Frey
  • Homer
  • Cuff

Frey, the main protagonist, resides in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City, abandoned under a bridge at birth. Often in trouble, she faces the consequences, seen in court and evading street gangs at the game’s beginning.

Mysteriously transported to the corrupted land of Athia, once beautiful and now overrun by the Break, a pervasive corruption altering everything it touches. Frey remains the sole person immune to this corruption amidst creatures like dragons and witches.

In this unfamiliar realm, Frey, accustomed to feeling like an outsider due to her past, searches for a way back to New York City, aided by her enchanted bracelet, “Cuff.” Her journey involves confronting the formidable Tantas and battling terrifying monsters.

Homer, a pet cat closely associated with the main character, Frey, becomes a significant part of the storyline. When Frey’s house catches fire at the game’s outset, she reluctantly gives Homer away as she’s unable to care for it. She entrusts the cat to the judge, making her promise to look after Homer.

The secondary character in Forspoken and the main ally is kind of a weird one. When Frey is taken to Athia, a cuff emerges on her right arm. Cuff is a mystical bracelet that leads Frey as she navigates Athia’s dangerous terrain.

The cuff will also help Frey learn her magic and master spellcasting. The cuff has the ability to speak, but only Frey can hear him. He regularly cracks sarcastic jokes with Frey. Frey is assisted in navigating the vast expanses of Athia by Cuff!

Most of the people in Athia have been corrupted or enslaved by the Tantas. But Auden is a considerate young lady who puts the needs of others above her own. She recognizes positive qualities in Frey. Auden is ready to welcome Frey to Athia.

Antagonist And Rival Characters

Finally, a game isn’t complete without its villains. Forspoken has all female villains with different powers described below:

The Tantas

The Tantas are the corrupted matriarchs of Athia and the game’s major enemies/bosses. They were not always evil, though! Tantas were originally the land’s beneficent rulers. The people adored them, and everyone lived prosperous lives under their rule. They suddenly started acting all evil and inexplicably turned into tyrants after the break happened

Tantas now rule as insane sorceresses in the middle of their realms. They are Frey’s greatest threat since they are a group of Athia’s most potent sorceresses.

Let’s discuss each of the 3 Tantas below:

Tanta Sila:

Rival character: Tanta Sila
Rival character: Tanta Sila

Doesn’t she just look ferocious? Tanta Sila is one of the hardest bosses in the Forspoken. Interestingly, Sila is a wicked and perverse matriarch who rules with a reputation for ruthlessly destroying anything and everyone who gets in her way. 

Tanta Prav:

Prav is the irrational second antagonist of the game. Her title is the “Tanta of Justice.” She presided over Athia’s court system before the Break and was very good. 

Additionally, Prav serves as the realm’s judge and executioner. The antagonist punishes people in a hasty manner because she believes everyone around her is doing wrong. She doesn’t justify any crime and just kills her people in any matter.

Tanta Olas:

Lastly, Tanta Olas is the Third antagonist, and she is ready to cross any limits to satisfy her need for knowledge. She can absorb people’s knowledge and is called the Tanta of Wisdom. She utilizes her power in order to learn new things, and she will use this information to cage her people inside her realm.
