||Meet Lina Inverse. Bandit killer, black sorceress,
robs from the rich and gives to herself, fan of really big dinners.
Lina's been questing for a long time now, randomly slaughtering the wicked
and enjoying nice soft beds at inns and sometimes saving the world.
Life on the road's made her independent (unless she doesn't want to be),
carefree, and just a liiitle bit irresponsible and immature... most of
her magic is incredibly destructive, notably the infamous Dragon Slave
tac-nuke sized spell.
LINA'S TRAVELLING ROADSHOW OF MANIACS
||Gourry Gabriev, travelling companion of Lina's.
He's not real bright. He's rather dense. He tends not to quite
get what's going on at any given point in time. But he's heroic without
being overly dashing, friendly without being overly crushing, and generally
an all around nice guy you wouldn't mind taking home to your mother.
He also has the legendary Sword of Light, copyright Lucasfilm Ltd.
||Zelgadis, part human, part golem, part chimeria, part
whatever. Softly spoken and usually the straight man to Lina's antics,
he has one overall goal in life: find a cure for his condition. He
usually only hangs out with the gang when their goals match his in some
way, but he knows right from wrong and will go an extra yard to protect
others if need be. He's talented with a blade and with shamanistic
magic (astral planes and nature forces).
||Amelia Wil Tesla Sailoon, self-proclaimed princess of
love and justice, righting wrongs and dramatically defeating evil. Well,
she would if she wasn't just a wee bit clumsy and incompetent... Amelia's
idealistic to the point of ignorance of what could go wrong in her actions
to bring justice to the world. Her cuteness level can spontaneously
cause cavities. Fortunately, a pure heart and amazingly coincidental
magical accident are sometimes just what's needed. Has trained in
Shamanism under Zel.
||Naga the White Serpent, Lina's self-proclaimed archrival
and occasional travelling companion split ways with her before Gourry arrived.
However, in her days with Lina, she proved to be... unique. Sporting
a very, ahem, interesting sorceress's costume, a very frightening laugh
and a complete lack of common sense, Naga's skills don't quite live up
to her ego. She also enjoys teasing Lina about her figure, and usually
a fireball to the face in reply.
OTHER FOLKS WHO CAUSE PROBLEMS
||Prince of Sailoon and father of Amelia, Philoniel ("Phil")
is just as idealistic and dramatic as his daughter. If not moreso.
If that were possible. He's supposedly a pacifist, if having attacks
named 'Goodwill Towards Men Crush' and 'Kindness to All Creatures Kick'
and a booming, intimidating voice count as pacifism. Fortunately,
he rarely quests with the gang, thus keeping them out of the trouble his
big mouth can cause.
||Xelloss the Trickster Priest travelled with the group
during Slayers Next and Slayers Try. He's very amused by the world
in general, very secretive, and also happens to be a dark general of the
evil Mazoku (in the dub, Monster) race under the Beastmaster who is under
Shabranigdu (whacked in Vol 3. of the Slayers) who is under the Lord of
Nightmares..... needless to say, he's a bad man. But he does like
a good joke and will help the gang out, provided that doing this helps
his own goals. Will he show in Reflect? "That is a secret."
||Luna Inverse, Lina's older sister. We never meet her,
and this is one of the only two pictures available of her.. but apparently,
she's VERY POWERFUL, works part time as a waitress and part time as a knight
of Suffeed the Dragon King, and Lina is scared to death of her. Not
much else is known about her, but mentions of her pop up from time to time.
||The Lord of Nightmares, the creator of all, the ultimate
force of chaos. Generally avoids the mortal world, which is a good
thing, because the few times Lina summons her as a destructive force with
the Giga Slave spell, all sorts of badness go down. Despite the dark
name, it's largely assumed that L-sama isn't evil... just limitless and
