"You" (name chosen by player) : A young magine. You've led a life like any other normal Hub kid up to this point.
"Best Friend" (name chosen by player) : Another young magine. This person always ends up going to a different academy than you, regardless of what you pick. This person can be irrelevant to your adventures, become your greatest ally, or even become your worst enemy. (behavior type is randomly chosen)
"Tag-Along" (final name pending) : Another young magine. If it turns out that your best friend does not join your cause, you end up accidentally saving the life of this person slightly later on in the game. This person's a little ditsy -- almost comically so -- and is always a young girl. If your best friend does join your cause, you meet up with her on various occasions during your adventures. This person always went to a different academy than you, regardless of what you pick.
