In Dungeon of the Endless, characters are mostly the heroes with which the player can choose to play. Characters may also refer to The Merchant and the Monsters found throughout the dungeon. Currently, the game has a total of 18 heroes for the player to choose from.
Heroes[edit | edit source]
Before beginning a new run, players can choose up to two characters to take with him, or he can let the game random them. The only way to start with more than two heroes is to unlock the Armory Pod, which allows the player to start with four powerful heroes.
Unlocking heroes[edit | edit source]
While exploring the dungeon, players will sometimes find other heroes hidden behind the door. These heroes can be hired by the player for a certain amount of Food, which depends on the hero's level. After hiring the hero, the player will have to exit at least three floors with the new hero to unlock him.
Factions[edit | edit source]
Lore-wise, each hero is member of a certain faction. While other Amplitude games are mostly divided by races, Dungeon of the Endless has different races on the same faction. The game has three main factions: The guards, those who act in the name of the law; The prisoners, a "bunch of misfits", brought together by chance and driven by profit and personal gain; and the natives, those already in Auriga, each in a personal quest, acting on their own.
Before update 0.9.22, which faction the character was a part of did not play a factor in the mechanics of the game, but since that update, heroes acquired a passive skill that increased their attributes if they were nearby other heroes from the same faction. For example, Sara Numas starts the game with the Got Your Back skill, which passively increase her defense when in the same room as other guards.
Guards[edit | edit source]
Guards were those responsible for keeping the prisoners in check, making sure they were following orders and not allowing them to escape. With the crash, the guards are now forced to work together with those who were once under their boots, in order to survive the dungeon.

Prisoners[edit | edit source]
For one reason or another, these characters found themselves locked up in the spaceship. The crash was a great opportunity for a escape, but they must cooperate with the guards if they want to leave the dungeon alive.
