Vex also has a minor obsession with flying, eventually leading her to… Acquire a flying broom in an incident we do not mention. Do not talk about broom gate. She can also charm the pants off anyone, yet between that and her apparent contractual obligation to expose herself every ten episodes or so, she never really falls into the stereotype of the seductress.
No one gets naked onscreen, shush. But honestly, I am wasting my time here. The best way to sum her up is this: The cast so far has made two personal playlists about their characters and their development, which you can find on Spotify.
You can just call him Percy, though. To sum up Taliesin Jaffe, I will use three anecdotes. They eventually end up in her workshop, which features lots of creepy shit, including but not limited to a pickled unicorn fetus, a set of eerie dolls with no eyes, a fifteen foot long eel skeleton, and chandeliers shaped like downwards pointing fangs.
Most of the cast recently streamed playing a new video game that just came out called For Honor. Taliesin spent most of his time on the stream talking about medieval weapons. He also has the best fashion sense. Oh, and after being a child actor, Taliesin, in his own words, went into voice acting because he wanted the right to a horrible haircut.
His haircut and color are the easiest way to date gifs and screencaps from any given episode. He also frequently brings a gun to a sword fight. Other than that, Percy as a character is the definition of a slowburn. But only for him. Other features of his characters are a, in his words, horrible mind that comes up not only with the first guns in the history of this fantasy setting, but also numerous other creative things to tinker that may or may not kill people.
Oh, yeah, and even though his personal arc is technically over by episode 36, Matt Mercer is a cruel god and brings shit back to an extremely devastating extent thirty episodes later. Now, twenty more episodes after that, Percy is still dealing with his issues, and is slowly coming down from a manic into a depressive phase.
And there was a meme going around that Matt Mercer had a secret notebook with all the reveals in it, and he would give it to you if you defeat him in single combat?
And therein lies the tragedy of both her and Keyleth. And why is that? Keyleth is a combination of Aang and Britta from community, thrown in with a sheltered upbringing and poor people skills. Keyleth is the dutiful princess I mentioned above. To eventually lead the tribe, she has been sent on her Aramente, a trip to all the other Ashari tribes where she has to fulfill various quests to understand balance and shit. She also has to prove herself a hero in the process, something Keyleth… Struggles with.
Grog Strongjaw The aforementioned big guy who hits people. Or turns them into raspberry paste. He even has the right shirt. In the wrong colors.
And then he got into fights with the people beating his fellow theater nerd friends up. When your wife gets the romance arc she deserves. Just their Halloween costume on occasion.
And has led to the absurd situation where Laura had to tell her real life husband that she has a fantasy boyfriend.SDCC 2016: Matt Mercer And Marisha Ray of Critical Role
And every time she gets to a romantic scene with said fantasy boyfriend, Travis is cheering. RelationshipGoals Grog is the big guy of the group.
The only dedicated tank they have, with an intelligence of 6 that keeps him from being able to read, write, or even count really. One of my favorite scenes is in episode 40, in which Grog manages to outwit the two cleverest members of the party over an artifact in what is one of the tensest sequences on the show ever, that got very close to being an all-out fight between player characters.
Due to not being one to hide behind words or overthink things, Grog is also quite open with his feelings and his earnestness is what brought me to tears on occasion. He just has a lot of heart, okay? And always hits you with it when you least expect it.
Critical Role Is All About The Characters
The bit in episode 1 is really the most uncomfortable that ever gets, and at least all sex workers are portrayed with as much agency as that position allows for, so… Well. Do not trust this man. He will destroy you and laugh about it.
To the degree that not only did his fellow cast members yell at him, the crew shot him with nerf darts, and a recent Talks Machina episode opened like this.

Too bad they had no actual shame bells. Scanlan is the little guy, a gnome bard to be exact, who hits on people. Mostly women, but there have been instances and word of god on twitter that confirmed him as not entirely straight.
No one in this party is, and I will fight you about that. We can witness the creation of his character on the second episode of the podcast I keep mentioning: I want to be the worst! He, Grog, and a possessed sword were a good cop, bad cop, no cop trio for a while. And because bards are amazing and crazy that way, can due to game mechanics make anyone believe anything, talk them into anything, and get away with it unscathed. Oh, and also, he does songs and they do something in combat. Occasionally, Laura also writes less filthy but unfailingly hilarious limericks for him.
She occasionally comes back, or skypes in though. Pike is the cleric the party is missing most of the time, the mom friend, the good influence on everybody, but basically down for everything.
She has a very cute friendship with Grog, whom she and her great great grandfather took in after he was abandoned by his herd.
