The Adventure Zone Wiki

This page is for minor characters that don't actually get a chance to speak in the story, or have very brief appearance, and so do not have enough information to be put into a non-stub article. This will become the page for Balance Characters, Minor Amnesty Characters, Minor Graduation Characters, Minor Dust Characters, Minor Commitment Characters, Minor (K)night's Characters, and other Miscellaneous Minor Characters can be found here!

Balance Minor Characters[]

Brock Thickstone[]

Featured in the Live Boston Stunt Spectacular. He was Jess the Beheader's wrestling partner prior to his offscreen murder.

Chancellor Marlow[]

Chancellor of the Legato Conservatory. Featured in the Stolen Century, episode 63 and 64.

Cherub Joe[]

Cherub Joe is Jeff Angel's sleazy manager and mastermind of the Turbo-Jeff Action Doll line of toys. He is a member of the "creates facsimiles of other characters" club alongside Garfield the Deals Warlock. Featured in the Live Candlenights 2018 Spectacular.


Featured in the episode Live in Atlanta. Cinder is a living fireball who the THB met on their journey to fight King Scald. He had recently been shitcanned (fired??) from his job working the forge in Scald's castle.

He seems to speak in an almost ghostly and foreboding manner when small, making his lighthearted sentences very humorous to hear. Imagine an apparition appearing before you in the dead of night and crying that you must avenge their death by killing a rich socialite, who is, and I quote, "a total asshole". That's what it's like. His voice changes depending on his size, in a spur-of-the-moment bit improvised by Travis and Griffin. His largest self sounds like an enormous buff stud and his medium-sized self sounds identical to Griffin's own unaltered voice.

He seems to be quite the bargainer, as he haggles with the THB for information despite literally being in the middle of wasting away on a bridge. Taako calls his bluff on this.


Featured in episode 23. One of the Hammerhead gang, Craigory was involved in the fight at the garage. He has since died.

Death Man[]

Featured in The Boston Live Event. He's an older wrestler, but still very strong, and wears a trench coat, under which he wears baggy pants and a tee shirt with cut off sleeves. He has a skull painted on his face. His entrance music is a bunch of electric lutes, and he has a banner with gothic symbols and a large flaming sword on it. It takes him quite a while to get to the ring. He is probably based on real world wrestler; The Undertaker.

Doug Math[]

Mentioned in episode 32. The inventor of mathematics in Faerun, as remembered by Taako and confirmed by Hodge Podge.


A former vampire who met Très Horny Boys during the Live Halloween Special. He was cured of vampirism by the boys and now works at the Bureau of Benevolence. He also briefly appeared in the Live Candlenights 2018 Spectacular, at a Candlenights party.


The occasional sidekick of Lucian Buttwatcher, mentioned in The Flophouse Presents: Return of the Hogsbottom Three. He's compared to Sherlock Holmes' sidekick Watson and helped Buttwatcher solve the mystery of Jesse Thorn's death. Gartholomule is said to be half-human, half-mule, but that could have been a joke (especially since mules, horse/donkey hybrids, are sterile).

Gerald the Catwalk Boy[]

Featured in The Live Boston Stunt Spectacular, Gerald the catwalk boy operates the spotlight from atop the catwalk. He is human and has a voice that sounds like he's going through puberty.

Gerald Loggins[]

Featured in the Live Candlenights 2018 Spectacular, Gerald Loggins is a man in sensible slacks, that began his adventure during a last minute Candle Nights shopping trip at in the Fantasy Costco for his stepson Timothy. He is Level 1 Stepdad, and he has at most 10 hit points, as evidenced by a 10 point healing potion putting him at full from being downed after an intense battle. He fights alongside the Tres Horny Boys throughout their quest, and in the end receives a mint condition Jeff Angel figurine.


Hekuba's new boyfriend. He has been part of the Coralheart clan for decades. Mentioned in episode 50: Lunar Interlude IV - The Calm Before the Storm.

Hathaway Redcheek-Fangbattle[]

A halfling woman who is part of the Redcheek cider family and the wife of Jeremy "Scales" Fangbattle. She is Noelle Redcheek's cousin. She loves music, and it forms the bedrock of her relationship with her husband. She is also fiercely loyal to her family and went on a dangerous mission to ensure the safety of her uncle, Darius Redcheek.


Featured in Here There be Gerblins, episode 5 and episode 6. An orc youth who the adventurers rescue from slavers. Kurtze was later seen firing an arrow at Gundren Rockseeker and fleeing. It is unknown whether he survived the destruction of Phandalin, but unlikely. He was named after a Twitter user (Scott Kurtz) for whom Griffin deleted the tweet.

Leeman Kessler[]

First introduced in episode 10: Murder on the Rockport Limited - Chapter One. He was a half-elf soldier and a Bureau of Balance Reclaimer, who died trying to transport The Oculus back to the Bureau. He was posthumously impersonated by Merle Highchurch.

Nundro Rockseeker[]

Brother of Gundren Rockseeker, Tharden Rockseeker, and cousin of Merle Highchurch. Found dead while heading towards Wave Echo Cave.


Featured in episode 64: The Stolen Century - Chapter Four. An Abbess and spiritual leader of The First Monastery. Chose Merle Highchurch to train at the monastery, where she taught him how to use a technique called Parley. Named after Twitter user @oriana_gray.


Featured in the Live in San Francisco adventure. A local Orc merc that offered to come along for Davenport's journey.  Her home was destroyed when she was just a child, and she found a new home on the ocean. She was wearing a black duster over a white linen shirt and ratty brown pants, with an eyepatch over one of her scarred-up eyes. She’s large enough to carry what appears to be a moderately-sized ship’s cannon strapped to her back. On her hip is a long cutlass in a plain black scabbard.


Featured in episode 17: Lunar Interlude 1. A dwarven carnival vendor and fried conjurer who can fry up anything your heart desires. During the first Midsummer celebration in the Balance Arc, she sold fried unicorn horn and unicorn dick to Magnus, although she noted that it was very illegal.


Renée the Jackhammer Robot is an automaton that lives in Wave Echo Cave. She has jackhammers for arms. She bulldozes Spider Bryan into a pit. She was named after Twitter user Renubals.


Ruby was Gundren Rockseeker's dog who traveled with the Adventurers on their trip to Phandalin. Is said to look like two butts. Not heard of since the third episode, presumably obliterated in the apocalyptic glassification of Phandalin. Their name was made up right on the spot. After the events of episode 69, is no longer the only known example of Dog.

Skelly (alias)[]

Featured in the MaxFunCon East Live adventure. Presumably not his real name, Skelly is an employee at Camp Goodfriend. He is a large person who, for his job, wears a costume designed to make him look like a skeletal dragon (but it's really just like a child's skeleton costume from the neck down with spooky skeleton dragon mask on top). He throws foam "fire" balls at camp attendees and can only be beaten by great teamwork.

Spider Bryan[]

Spider Bryan is a giant actual spider who guards the Dark Elf, Magic Brian. He was killed by Renée the Jackhammer Robot. Featured in episode 4: Here There Be Gerblins - Chapter Four. A likeness of him was also formed briefly in Wonderland, in episode 55.

Tharden Rockseeker[]

Brother of Gundren Rockseeker and Nundro Rockseeker, and cousin of Merle Highchurch. Found dead while heading towards Wave Echo Cave.

The Aunt[]

Taako and Lup's unnamed aunt, who taught Taako how to cook, and presumably died when the Red Robes' homeworld was absorbed by the Hunger. Mentioned in several episodes, including episode 60,

Tom Bodett(s)[]

In the Plane of Thought (the real world), Tom Bodett is an American author, voice actor, and radio host who has been the spokesman for hotel chain Motel 6 for thirty years. In the Realm in which our heroes reside, Tom Bodett is the only (and every) resident of the city of Rockport.
