This is Remy. Remy has always wanted to be a chef, but was constantly ridiculed for his dream by his froggy friends. He sneaks into kitchens when no one is around in an attempt to hone his craft. He’s actually pretty good at it now. His dream is to someday open his own restaurant.
Remy is dedicated to keeping you well fed. If you bring him along, he’ll keep you (and your health bar) supplied with all manner of delicious treats!
Poor Lance. Lance is terrible at jousting. Don't get it twisted, he’s a real knight, but he has never won a single joust. He has competed at every level and still loses to toddlers. Lance never gives up though, he is as determined as ever to win a joust. Keep it up Lance, you useless butterfingers.
Anyway, Lance will still employ his jousting “talents” against your enemies and fling himself headlong into them!
Say hi to Ellie! This one time, Ellie was on a date at a pizza parlor when all of a sudden, nature called. She frantically gave a bad reason for leaving and hurried off, still clutching her greasy slice of pizza. Barely making it to a toilet, she realized how badly she messed up her date and took a large bite of the pizza.
Ellie just kinda does what she wants. Meaning sometimes she’ll just lick enemies. Gross, but it’ll stun them for a second, so that’s nice.
As you hunt down the thieves who snatched your frogs, you’ll end up making your way into all sorts of weird places:
