Edison Trent

(played by Ian Ziering)
freelancer_030703_line001.jpg Edison is the marquee character of Freelancer. He's brash at times with an overarching need to get ahead - to make that one big score. Edison has the classic markings of the anti-hero, but he still has a noble heart.
Dr. Kendra Sinclair (played by Cree Summer)
  A Bretonian scientist but gutsier than the average pencil pusher, Kendra is driven by the pursuit of the truth but concerned with her lack of recognition in a male dominated discipline. She is smart and, when she needs to be, bold.
Jun'ko "Juni" Zane (played by Jennifer Hale)
freelancer_030703_line003.jpg A Kusari and Liberty mix, she's solid and forthright - no nonsense - Jun'ko arranges missions for flyers in Liberty. She's worked hard to get where she is and is ever concerned with detail and loyalty. She is all action as a skilled and cunning pilot.
Lord Hakkera (played by George Takei)
  A nobleman and local leader of people, he has great responsibility via his class, complicated by his membership in "The Order".
Richard Winston Tobias (played by John Rhys-Davies)
freelancer_030703_line004.jpg A Bretonian equipment dealer, Richard apprenticed Trent when he found him some years prior. He is a warm and funny man, with a strong sense of loyalty and pride. He loves Trent like a son and was hurt when Trent left to seek his fortune in the Borderworlds.
Claus Botzler (played by Kenneth Mars)
  Claus is a proud, fighting Rheinlander and leader of the Bundschuh Rebellion.
Dexter Hovis (played by Xander Berkeley)
freelancer_030703_line005.jpg A rough-edged pilot who is used to taking difficult jobs with no questions asked, Dexter hangs out with a mob of disreputables in an abandoned Dreadnought, hidden away.
Ozu (played by Ryun Yu)
  An officer in the Black Dragons, a Kusari Counter Political group, Ozu is an excellent lieutenant and fighter, whose intelligence network and sphere of influence is far-reaching. Composed, yet militant.
Dr. Roland Quintane (played by Charles Shaunessy)
  Not like the typical scientist, Roland is a man consumed with his studies but thanks to years of digging around the rougher, outlying area, he has a street-smart edge to him.
Diedrich Von Clausen (Maurice LaMarche)
  Diedrich is a Rheinland nobleman who is actually a mole for Lord Akiro (and "The Order"). He was undoubtedly raised with finery and social grace, but now thanks to his position, he has seen too much.
Marcus Walker (played by Corey Burton)
  The classic hero, Walker is the Captain of a large Liberty ship and proud of it. He is the polar opposite to Trent.
  The Psi part of a Psi-listener team in Rheinland, Blix is largely mute (when he opens his mouth only a mad tangle of hundreds of voices and tones comes out), but communicates with Jonner via telepathy. He is tied to the darker forces that run throughout the universe.
  Drake is a jar-headed, MP type, though he seems smarter than the rest, the way a natural born sniper stands out from a crowd of soldiers. He'd be headed for a career of greatness if he wasn't working for the wrong side.
Diplomat Harrison
  A step in the right direction towards rebuilding, Harrison's the first choice by the President of Liberty to blot out the Nomad corruption.
President Barbara Jacobi
freelancer_030703_line007.jpg President Jacobi is smart and influential, the force behind Liberty's might. Not only is she a political powerhouse, she is also a practical and elegant dignitary; poised and reserved when the occasion calls for it.
  Creepy, second half of a Psi-Listener team in Rheinland.
Michael King
freelancer_030703_line008.jpg A good soldier and pilot with some mileage, Michael's the Wing Commander and an old standby for Jun'ko. He is an accomplished flyer but also a realist when it comes to his outlook on life. He's got a good bead on things.
Sam Lonnigan
freelancer_030703_line010.jpg A money guy, Lonnigan is a resaler and makes cash on the legal and illegal sale of items. His life has been all about cash and he has grown fat and comfortable on his profits.
Chancellor Florian Gustov Niemann
  The Kaiser of Rheinland, Chancellor Niemann's people found a new planet and unleashed a power that made its initial strike on the seat of power of Rheinland. He used to be fair and even handed, but now as a Nomad host and the point of infection that is spreading to other dignitaries, he has become warlike and secretive - carrying out the Nomad objective.
Secretary Arvin Reed
  Reed is the prime betrayer of the President. He was infected by the Kaiser on a diplomatic mission and, once key people were turned, has delivered her to be converted.
Syd Montague
  A thief and probably one of the best thieves for hire there is, Syd's stealthy, prepared and cunning. He's a professional and behind the plot to steal the Artifact from Sinclair, but is overwhelmed by the opposition - quickly finding out that this is not a regular heist.
Governor Tekagi
  A corpulent, hedonist historically interested in peace. Governor Tekagi's attitude changes though after he becomes a Nomad Host from his exposure to the Kaiser. Now he is secretive, warlike and dangerous.
Solomon Vance
  A pilot for Sinclair and Quintaine. Solomon knows the ins and outs of the harder places to reach in the galaxy.
Herman Van Pelt
  A studier of astronomical anomalies in the Badlands of Liberty Space, Herman has a relationship with Jun'ko's parents and is very fatherly towards her.
