Seen characters[edit | edit source]

Dr. Amer Singh[edit | edit source]

Amer Singh.

Dr. Amer Singh was an IMC scientist and lead scientist on the Wraith Project. Originally a colleague of Renee Blasey, he evidently turned on her once she became the primary test subject for the project. The Singh Labs are presumably named after him.

Though he is deceased in Apex's main dimension, he is alive in Wraith's home dimension, and is the reason Voidwalker Wraith stayed there.

Artur[edit | edit source]

Artur and his raven.
Nei, young one. Nei. I lived to see you pass the test. It was not the gun that protected them. It was you... Perhaps there is more to the old ways, than the weapon we chose. A beast none has slátra. You... will be the first... Blothhundr...
— Artur's last words

Artur was a hunter living in a village in Talos that rejected technology and worshiped the Norse gods with a particular focus on Odin, the Allfather. After his brother Johann was killed in a flash freeze, Artur took care of his brother's child, Bloodhound, for 10 years. Artur was killed by a Goliath that attacked the village. Before dying, he gave Bloodhound his hatchet and his blessing.

Artur also had a raven. After his death, the raven helped Bloodhound slay the Goliath and the raven became Bloodhound's. Bloodhound named the raven Artur.

Ash[edit | edit source]

Ash.

Ash is a simulacrum, a Pilot, and a mercenary who worked under Kuben Blisk as one of the Apex Predators. She piloted a custom Ronin-class Titan. They were destroyed by the Militia Pilot Jack Cooper and his Titan BT-7274 during the Frontier War; however, Ash was later rebuilt by Vinson Dynamics.

Eventually, she reunited with Blisk. At some point, they made a deal which involved Blisk throwing her head into a portal and her headless body was stached inside one of the IMC's terminal stations under Kings Canyon, on top of a charge tower. The head landed in the dimension where Revenant rules over Solace, which the Legends dub the "beta plane," and was split into 9 pieces, scattered all over Kings Canyon.

The Legends rebuild the Ash's head for Hammond Robotics in exchange for the coordinates of Revenant's source code. Ash is revived when the head gets reattached to the body. Ash is delivered to Hammond Robotics, who then extract codes from her memory banks. Pathfinder later finds her into a dumpster, without any knowledge except for her name. Pathfinder takes her to the warehouse he woke up in and they live together in Solace City.

Because Ash is a girl and she is his "friend", Pathfinder boasts to other Legends that he has a "girlfriend" which pique the interest of Mirage and Rampart. They visit Pathfinder and Ash, but Rampart accidentally triggers Ash's memories, alerting the attention of Blisk. After all the Legends leave and Ash is alone, Blisk comes to the warehouse. Ash prepares to fight but Blisk explains he was not trying to kill her, he had no choice, and they had left on good terms. He then tells her an old friend of hers is back.

Ash is connected to the floating city of Psamathe, Olympus, and knows Darion Che and Duardo Silva.

Big Sister[edit | edit source]

Big Sister.

Big Sister is a mysterious masked figure who leads a gang on Gaea. Her gang attacks Rampart's shop after the latter wins a gauntlet match.

Darion and Cherisse Che[edit | edit source]

The Che family.

Darion and Cherisse Che are Lifeline's parents. They are war profiteers from the Frontier War. When Lifeline found out, she left them and joined the Frontier Corps to aid those in need, and later joined the Apex Games in order to fund the Corps. While they appear as kind and loving while in public, they are actually cold and cruel.

When the Apex Games came to Olympus, Lifeline reunites with her parents at a party. To her surprise, they hug their daughter, though Cherisse makes it clear that it is only for show. Darion demands Lifeline to come home, but their conversation is interrupted by an attack on the party.

Darion collects antique robots; Gibraltar calls him "the drone guy." Darion is childhood friends with Duardo Silva.

Frances[edit | edit source]

Frances.

Frances is a member of Big Sister's gang. Frances calls Rampart, telling her to lose the underground gauntlet match because people have money on it.[1] After Rampart wins, Frances and five others from the gang attack Rampart's shop.

Frances is voiced by Allegra Clark.[2]

Dr. Franklin Humbert[edit | edit source]

Franklin Humbert's death.

Dr. Franklin Humbert was the head of Humbert Labs, a manufacturer of pesticide gases in Zaldana City, Gaea. Humbert was murdered by Alexander Nox after he discovered Nox's experiments on living tissue. Nox later faked his own death to avoid justice.

Lt. Jackson Williams[edit | edit source]

Jackson Williams' fall.

Lieutenant Jackson Williams was a Pilot for the IMC and one of Bangalore's four older brothers. While serving on the IMS Hestia, Jackson went MIA in a battle with the Militia about three years ago, near the end of the Frontier War. Bangalore is convinced he's still alive and well, though her memory of the battle is hazy and unreliable.

Jaime[edit | edit source]

Jaime.

Jaime is a friend of Loba, skilled in electronics. In the past, Loba saved him from a group of thugs and they became partners. He discovers Revenant's whereabouts online and informs Loba. He gives Loba the access key to Revenant's "source code" which was hidden in the IMC base beneath Kings Canyon.

James "Forge" McCormick[edit | edit source]

Main article: Forge
Forge.
Look, the legends are great, and they deserve respect but they've NEVER faced anyone like me. And when we hit the ground, I dare anyone to bring the fight up close and personal.
— Forge moments before his assassination.

There is a Forge museum in Gaea, but it soon filed for bankruptcy.

Johann and Brigida[edit | edit source]

Johann.

Johann and Brigida were the parents of Bloodhound. They were engineers who settled in World's Edge before the meltdown. They were killed in the flash freeze accident; Johann was killed in front of a young Bloodhound. After their death, Bloodhound was taken in by Johann's brother, Artur.

Kuben Blisk[edit | edit source]

Blisk.
Hm. Son, you think you've got what it takes? They call us Apex Legends. But not all Legends are heroes. Each fight for their own reasons. From the ashes of war, Legends are born. They are icons of strength, power. Outside the ring, they're champions. Inside, they're equals. But the goal remains the same, become an Apex Legend. I say it's a sport of survival. You ask me? It's simple, eh. They kill you, they're better. You kill them, you're better.
— Blisk throughout the opening cinematic

Kuben Blisk is a South African mercenary pilot and prominent antagonist in Titanfall 1 and Titanfall 2.[3] He is the leader of the Apex Predators, an elite mercenary unit that was frequently contracted by the IMC during the Frontier War.

Blisk was a competitor of the original Games started by the IMC in Solace, which was merely the Thunderdome back then. After the Frontier War ended, the Mercenary Syndicate restarted the Games as the "Apex Games" and Blisk was named its commissioner.

For reasons unknown, Blisk decided to go off the grid without telling the Syndicate. Before doing so, he was recommended to add Rampart to his "list" by an unknown person. Blisk ceased contact with anyone for a year, but kept a watchful eye on Rampart in Gaea. Blisk returns when he saw Rampart's shop being attacked by Big Sister's gang. Impressed by her performance, Blisk personally hands Rampart his card which allows her to join the Apex Games.

Later, Blisk moves to Solace. After noticing that Ash has returned, he personally visits her and informs her that an old friend of hers is back.

Lisa Stone[edit | edit source]

Luc Paquette with his daughter.

Luc Paquette was the lead electrical engineer for the Apex Games and the father of Wattson. He worked with her to create The Ring, only to die the day it was completed. However, he would rather have it be called "The Forcefield".

Marcos and Alanza Andrade[edit | edit source]

The Andrade family.

Marcos "Griftor" Andrade was a notorious con-man and thief. He ran a Bonnie-and-Clyde operation with his wife, Alanza Andrade, and they had a daughter, Loba. A huge bounty was offered for his death after he stole an artifact from an unknown person, which led to his murder by Revenant.

Mila Alexander[edit | edit source]

Mila Alexander.
But imagine what this could do for us! It's one time, one risk to give us that second chance we've been searching for! The chance for a new life.
— Mila about a new chance for life after finding out about the prediction algorithm.

Mila Alexander is Crypto's foster sister. She and Tae Joon had day jobs as computer engineers for drone software but were somewhat notorious as hackers. Mila was captured by the Syndicate after discovering their prediction algorithm for the Apex Games, and Tae Joon was quickly framed as her murderer. After her capture, Mila escaped the Syndicate and laid low. Mila later contacts Crypto, tells him about her escape, and warns him that someone inside the Syndicate is watching him.

Mystik[edit | edit source]

Mystik is Crypto and Mila Alexander's former caretaker at Ticacek Orphanage in Suotamo. Even after reinventing his identity, Crypto still maintains contact with Mystik, and she is partially involved in his efforts to infiltrate the Apex Games.

She has a son and is a fan of Mirage.

Newton Somers[edit | edit source]

A photograph of Horizon and Newton.

Before Horizon left on her mission to acquire branthium from the edge of a black hole, she promised her prepubescent son Newton that she would return. However, Horizon was betrayed by her colleague and was left stranded in the black hole's orbit. Horizon eventually escaped, but due to time dilation, 87 years had passed before she returned; Newton had already grown up, had a family of his own, and died.

Nikolas[edit | edit source]

Nik.

Nikolas, commonly called Nik, is Gibraltar's ex-boyfriend. The two had a reckless relationship; they shared their first kiss in the cage at Thunderdome, and got caught in a landslide after stealing Gibraltar's dad's motorcycle. The two broke up some time ago after the landslide accident, and Nik now lives elsewhere with his new companion Michael.

Nik stumbles upon Gibraltar again in a party down in Malta, much to his annoyance.

Dr. Reid[edit | edit source]

Dr. Reid was Dr. Mary Somers' apprentice. Together, they departed on a dangerous mission to prove the existence of Branthium. After successfully extracting the Branthium from a black hole, Dr. Reid betrayed Dr. Mary Somers and left her to die in the black hole. Somers, however, managed to escape.

Shadow Revenant[edit | edit source]

Shadow Revenant.

"Shadow" Revenant is Revenant from a reality where he overthrew his dimension's Syndicate and now rules over Solace, hosting the Apex Games for his entertainment.

During Halloween, Shadow Revenant meets Pathfinder after the latter took a portal to his dimension. Shadow Revenant is the host of the Shadowfall and Shadow Royale game modes. In "The Broken Ghost" quest, the Legends search Shadow Revenant's dimension for pieces of Ash's head, and Shadow Revenant helps them at the end.

"Voidwalker" Wraith[edit | edit source]

"Voidwalker" Wraith.

The "Voidwalker" is a nickname for the main dimension's original Wraith, since she first appears in the "Voidwalker" short.

While attempting to find information on Amer Singh, she found a dimension where she was still being experimented on by the IMC; the IMC of that dimension was not defeated in the Frontier War and thus still exists in the Outlands. Voidwalker Wraith freed that reality's Wraith and gave her Kunai. The two Wraiths switched dimensions: the Voidwalker Wraith stayed behind to pursue Singh; the escaped Wraith passed into Voidwalker's dimension (the main dimension of the game) and entered the Apex Games.

Voidwalker Wraith presumably had some connection to Crypto, since she used a program with his logo to access IMC computers.

Gabriel Mora and Roy House were employees at Hammond Robotics roughly 300 years ago. Mora ran tests on remote neural projection and degradation abatement in the year 2420, the year Revenant was first uploaded as a simulacrum.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Gryz Witt is a reference to Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order character Greez Dritus. Both Apex Legends and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order were developed by Respawn Entertainment.[8]
  • The official subtitles for "The Old Ways" Story from the Outlands originally spelled Artur's name as "Arthur", and has since been corrected.
