Clay is all about being a knight. He grew up as an orphan and spent every day striving to become one. Now that his dream has come true, he spends every day training his moves, learning new skills or fighting evil. And when he finally sleeps, he dreams of all the heroic deeds he will perform tomorrow.
Lance likes a good fight against evil monsters, but he loves being famous. Born and raised in a wealthy family, things have always come easy to Lance and he wants it to stay that way. All that fighting just messes up his shiny armour and curly hair and makes him look less than perfect in pictures.
Axl grew up in a rustic, little town in mining country. He is big, strong and always hungry. Sometimes for fighting, but mostly for something to eat. All that training knight stuff, playing the electrical lute or a computer game with Aaron, can really work up an appetite. Axl doesn’t talk so much, but he is always ready for a little snack. And a big one. And ten more.
Aaron was born and raised by the sea and he has a simple goal in life. Find the ultimate thrill. Right now it is riding his cool hover board while fighting evil lava monsters. Pretty cool, right? Not to mention dangerous! But as Aaron says; no danger, no fun! In the rare occasion that Aaron needs to chill, he likes to play computer games with Axl or just ‘vegging’ on the couch. He never sits still for long before he is out there again, chasing the next thrill.
Macy is very dedicated to being a knight. She wants to protect Knighton and she wants to prove to her father that she is a great fighter. She is mad that he won’t recognise her and she takes it out on every monster she can swing her power mace at. She loves going into battle with her friends, which always makes her father very nervous. Oh, did I mention her father is King Halbert and Macy is also a princess of the realm?
Merlok is the wizard protector of Knighton. He used to be a real-life wizard, but a magic blast dissolved his physical form and now he lives in the Fortrex computers as the sentient operating system Merlok 2.0. In his new, digital shape he helps the knights upgrade with NEXO Powers, but his personality is still the same. He is quirky, kind and very proud of his brave NEXO KNIGHTS™ heroes. But as awesome as the NEXO Powers are, Merlok stills believes things were better back in days of good, old magic.
Jestro is not bad. He is just no good at being good. Or funny for that matter. He was King Halbert’s jester and every day people laughed at him. Except for when he actually tried to be funny, then they fell silent. One day Jestro had enough and he seized the opportunity to become so powerful that no-one would ever dare laugh at him again.
The Book of Monsters is not bad. He is terrible! Manipulative, power-hungry and really good at being mean to others. He is highly intelligent and filled from cover to cover with both horrible monsters and vicious plans to take over Knighton. Since he is just a book, he needs someone to perform the actual bad deeds for him. Someone he can lure with promises of power, manipulate with ideas of evil and shout insults at when it fails.
Monsters are beings of chaos and craziness and therefore very hard to control. That is why you conjure up a Beast Master to wrangle the villainous monsters into order. Unfortunately the Beast Master already has his chains full with two extra crazy Globlins. They are uncontrollable and drag around their “Master” from place to place.
Imagine a red ball the size of a soccer ball. Now imagine it bounces up and down and left and right with enormous power. Imagine the ball is on fire. Now imagine it is made of lava, has vicious little yellow eyes, a mouth full of teeth and a maniacal laugh as it chases you. That is a Globlin.
Scurriers are small, pear-shaped monsters who love to scurry around the battleground and menace their opponents. Preferably with a nasty weapon like a mace or a club. Very annoying and very fast and therefore hard to catch.
A list of Sparkks’ strengths: brute force, hard hitter and great physique. Sparkks is a cyclops, which means he is extra good at giving the evil eye. His two glowing horns, lines of magma across his body and a set of leathery wings really fulfill his evil look.
