Each of them is endowed with unique abilities and equipped with special weapons. For instance, Franz can attack opponents in a blinking of eyes; Angela is master of magic; and Tude is best at physical melee attacks. Although it is cartoon-styled, in-game characters are designed based on the eight-head body image.

Franz has a long sword and then an axe; Angela possesses an auxiliary magic sword and then a long-distance offensive truncheon; while Tude owns a metal handguard and then a wolf-claw-like weapon.
Together with more powerful weapons, combat style will also change in accordance with the switching professions, which take place after players upgrade to level 20 and 40. With varied back stories, the three characters will follow different paths along with the unfolding storyline.
