Meet the cast
There are seven playable characters in The Cave, each with their own motives and abilities. We had a chance to see some of them in action, and learned what they were capable of...
Though we didn't get to witness him in-game, we were told that this stoic character is heading to the cave in search of his master.
She's heading to the cave to search for her lost companions (and adventure, we're guessing, what with her being an adventurer and all).
This academic is apparently on the cusp of a scientific breakthrough, and the cave holds the key to unlocking it.
The hillbilly's special move lets him hold his breath underwater indefinitely, leading us to speculate that he's secretly a merhillbilly. Also, he's going to the cave in search of love, for whatever reason.
His special ability is Guardian Angel, which lets him take absurd amounts of damage (falling from heights, being attacked by a dragon) without dying. Which is good, because his journey to the cave to find a special sword will have him doing a lot of both.
The incredibly creepy twins are going to the cave to find their parents. We're guessing their parents ran away on account of their children being so spooky.
The Time Traveler
She's heading back in time to undo a wrongdoing from the past, because screw the space-time continuum. We don't know what her ability is, but in the video we saw, her running would alter and time-shift the world around her - we're guessing it has something to do with that.
