So Critical Role is back. Oh, these tears? They’re tears of joy. I mean, how could you not shed a little happy tear after the pure bliss of seeing Sam’s sponsored videos back? To see our favourite people back on screen after so long! Yes, we might all be in a parasocial relationship with the cast of Critical Role, but oh well!
Laura Bailey – Imogen Temult
Race: Human (variant)
Imogen is a young human with long, light-purple hair. She’s dressed in a slowy blue dress and has a featured yellow scarf around her neck. Imogen speaks with a Southern American accent is quite soft-spoken. She is a little reserved and seems to prefer not to be the centre of attention. Although we’ve not seen what kind of sorcerer she is, fans are speculating she might be a Aberrant Mind sorcerer.
Imogen has a quite cute and sweet relationship with Marisha’s PC Laudna. The two know each other from the start of the campaign.
Marisha Ray – Laudna
Class: Warlock (The Undead) / Sorcerer
Laudna is a pale, gaunt humanoid. She had big black eyes and dark lips. With even doll-like features. Despite her rather scary appearence, she’s a rather bubbly and personable woman. She seems mostly calm and doesn’t even seem to notice how frightening she appears. Even getting offended when other judge her based on her looks.
As of now, she’s been revealed to be a Warlock of the Undead, but her Sorcerer subclass hasn’t been shown. Though she could possibly be a shadow sorcerer?
And although she looks humanoid, I’m wondering whether she might be a Hexblood!
Taliesin Jaffe – Ashton Greymoore
Race: Earth Genasi
This brash and swearing earth genasi is quite the difference from Taliesin’s previous characters. It’s great to see him play someone so different!
Ashton has green skin, and dark purple crystalline hair. But their most notable feature is with the prominent hole in the left side of their head, filled with glass. Ashton is also a new homebrewed subclass of Barbarian that Matt has made.
Liam O’Brien – Orym
Class: Fighter (Battle Master)
Orym made his debut in the mini campaign, Exandria Unlimited. There we got to meet this calm and level-headed little halfling. Orym is a relatively relaxed individual, he is serious and dutiful and not at all reckless. He tends to want to leave the harder more complicated stuff to others he thinks would be better at it.
He’s been described as the most moral member of the group.
Sam Riegel – Fresh Cut Grass (F.G.C)
Sam certainly seems to be following the trend of playing short characters! But Fresh Cut Grass is a new and interesting addition to the Critical Role characters.
FCG is a very kind and polite little fella. He considers Ashton to be a close friend and is willing to help him no matter what. FCG is also playing a new homebrewed subclass of Cleric.
Ashley Johnson – Fearne Calloway
Race: Satyr (Faun)
Class: Druid (Circle of Wildfire)
Fearne is a softly spoken six-foot-tall faun with big eyes and furry ears. Fearne also made her first appearance in Exandria Unlimited. She is a calm and collected being, with a great display of compassion and appreciation for nature. But she still shows herself to be very fey-like. With her lack of awareness of normal societal norms.
She is a wildfire druid, and has a little fire spirit with her at all times, Little Mister.
Travis Willingham – Bertrand Bell
Bertrand Bell returns after his adventure in the Search for Grog mini campaign! For those not familiar, Bertrand was Travis’s old DMPC during the Search for Grog. A wizened old fighter who’s grown old but still has some fight left in him. That being said, quite a few people don’t think Bertrand is Travis’s actual PC.
As Travis has previously said he wants to play a character who gets brutally killed within the first few episodes of a campaign, then later reveal his true character. So let’s see if this remains the case!
