The most powerful Characters of the game, other than Riley himself, are the Major Arcana or Key Characters. Although a few of these extraordinary individuals may have been native to Piety, Indiana prior to the Troubles, the majority of them appear to have traveled many miles to reach the town, converging from all points of the compass in October of 20--.
All Key characters agree that they had an uncanny sense of urgency which drove them relentlessly until they reached Piety, as if some unknown force compelled them to reach the town in time to join the townspeople in their struggle for survival. It is widely agreed that none of these men and women had any surviving family members of their own.
Several characters in Fort Zombie are special. What they are special for or why they are special is unknown, but they all posses a Power that is unique to them and that will be helpful during the game.
Keys are also known as Major Arcana, to those who are fans of the Tarot. — Erinys
