Major Voice Actors

These major characters are the ones the story mostly revolves around, and they have the most important role in keeping the story progressing as they carry the leading plot. This is usually what the protagonist does. Below is a list of Forspoken voice actors who cover these major characters.

Frey Holland

The playable and main protagonist of the game. Frey is your typical modern-day, 21st-century New Yorker by heart, who is in her early 20s and has gone through a very rough phase in life. Holland lives with her feline companion, Homer, in a very old apartment in New York.

She is shown to have a very sour and rough personality towards everyone, considering her past experiences living alone as an orphan and being given away by her foster mother, and then getting involved in criminal activities, hence the reason she seems difficult to be reasoned with.
