Fortnite lore is a bit troublesome to get caught up with. Across many seasons and much more story arcs inside these seasons, the Fortnite islands have seen greater than their justifiable share of cataclysms, catastrophes, and, properly, cats. We will not blame you in case you want a refresher on who’s who within the Fortnite lore universe. Admittedly, even penning this was an excellent reminder for us too. Below you will discover a countdown of the main characters in Fortnite lore. As Epic likes to drip-feed its massive reveals, we’ll replace this story as needed–for instance, as we meet extra of the mysterious Seven or we’re launched to extra of the Imagined Order chain of command. For now, listed below are the 10 most essential characters within the Fortnite story to this point.10. The PrisonerIf theories show true, The Prisoner can be the fifth member of The Seven who we have met.We’re reserving this tenth spot on the checklist for The Prisoner, who may very well be one among The Seven, a secretive group that appears to be at battle with the Imagined Order (IO) for management of the Zero Point and thus the Fortnite island. The Prisoner was held captive in Polar Peak by the Ice King in Chapter 1, Season 7, earlier than the icy mountain melted and allowed The Prisoner to flee. He later fashioned a volcano, burning down elements of Athena, earlier than he was by no means seen once more. That is, a minimum of, till his photograph appeared alongside confirmed members of The Seven in The Bridge, the ability that homes the Zero Point. Whoever put up the corkboard and embellished it with clues appears to suppose The Prisoner is a member of The Seven, and judging by his helmet, they could be appropriate.9. MidasThe man with the supposedly golden contact merely turned every thing moist in Chapter 2, Season 3.As the chief of GHOST, an obvious paramilitary and espionage department of the IO, Midas took on an enormous function initially of Chapter 2, turning into the point of interest of the story for nearly a 12 months. His actions have led to sweeping modifications within the Fortnite omniverse, like when he tried to interrupt by means of the Storm and ended up inflicting a significant tsunami that flooded the complete island for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3. He was clearly given loads of energy inside GHOST, although his actions relating to the Storm do not appear to have been sanctioned by the IO, as they might’ve threatened the steadiness of the Zero Point. Thus, Midas appears to have defected to SHADOW simply earlier than initiating his Device, which might go on to introduce a few of the island’s largest modifications ever.8. RazIn the tip, Raz appears to have been a power-hungry pawn.We solely noticed Raz for one season, however he left his mark on the Fortnite world greater than many characters ever do. As a member of some form of cube-worshipping cult, Raz sought to wield the uncovered Zero Point’s powers for his personal mysterious beneficial properties in Chapter 2, Season 6, however in working in shut proximity with the cubes’ darkish power, he turned contaminated by it, and ended up screwing with the Zero Point to the extent that he basically pinged the island of Apollo on the map for The Last Reality, Fortnite’s alien faction, to invade. They did simply that, which later led to the catastrophic dice battle. The query stays, nevertheless, was Raz revealing the situation of Apollo exactly what the sentient cubes wished all alongside?7. The Cube QueenThis destroyer of realities has set her sights on Apollo.The latest character on this checklist additionally appears to be essentially the most dastardly. The Cube Queen arrived throughout Chapter 2, Season 8, beckoned by Raz two seasons earlier. She seems to be the chief of each The Last Reality and, thus, the cubes themselves, although it is unknown whether or not that is a task she claimed or was assigned by means of some form of indoctrination the likes of which Raz suffered. The Cube Queen is alleged to have destroyed “countless realities” earlier than, just like the chief of some form of interdimensional invasive species. A single dice (nicknamed Kevin by the group), was presumably despatched by the Queen in Chapter 1, Season 5 and practically destroyed the island a season later. At the time of writing, she seems set to assert Apollo as her subsequent trophy, now armed with a full-on dice military.6. The ParadigmSome followers suspect The Paradigm and Singularity are the identical particular person.We know little or no about The Paradigm to this point, however what we do know cements her as essential to the general Fortnite mythos. She is one among solely 4 confirmed members of The Seven, the sport’s mysterious group of masked characters that look form of like Fortnite authentic superheroes. How a lot energy they wield will not be but identified, however we all know The Paradigm and her allies are diametrically against the Imagined Order, seemingly as a result of they every intend to grapple with the Zero Point, but they will need to have totally different strategies of doing so. The Imagined Order has basically solid out The Paradigm and people like her, however we could also be heading towards their reassembly and take-back of the Zero Point in time.5. The ScientistThe Scientist created the Black Hole which swallowed Athena.Another confirmed member of The Seven, The Scientist had a direct hand in how Chapter 1 ended. When the Zero Point on Athena was susceptible in Season X, The Scientist arrived to have interaction with the Zero Point, although his motives stay unclear. Using a posh system of rockets and rifts, The Scientist detonated a rocket straight onto the Zero Point, which resulted within the Black Hole that swallowed all of Athena, spitting it again out later because the renewed Apollo. It seems this drastic measure was the one viable resolution to saving the uncovered Zero Point, which beforehand rested safely deep under Loot Lake. Without his efforts, the omniverse could have ended forever–or was that truly his plan?4. The VisitorWhen The Visitor arrived, Fortnite lore modified ceaselessly.The Visitor was the primary member of The Seven we met within the Fortnite storyline, approach again when he crashed onto the island in a steel capsule of some type embedded inside a meteor in Chapter 1, Season 3. He shortly went to work and constructed a rocket, then launched it into the sky which led to Fortnite’s first reside lore occasion, Blast Off, in 2018. His intentions with the rocket stay murky at greatest, however one concept is that he was signaling for the remainder of The Seven, so they might attain Athena and presumably take it again from IO management. He later reappeared in Season X, bringing The Scientist with him, and was, till just lately, considered the assumed chief of The Seven, however that is a task we now know belongs to…3. The FoundationDo you scent what The Foundation is cookin’?The Foundation is throughout Fortnite lore, particularly recently, and the truth that he is voiced by Dwayne Johnson tells us Epic has massive plans for this fourth confirmed member of The Seven. You’d must have learn the Batman/Fortnite: Foundation one-shot comedian to be completely caught up together with his goings-on, however listed below are the spark notes: The Foundation arrived through the Zero Crisis Finale in Chapter 2, Season 6, and after a quick altercation with Jonesy, determined to assist repair the Zero Point in trade for data on the whereabouts of Genō and The Sisters, whose identities stay secrets and techniques to this very day.The Foundation was caught contained in the Zero Point, holding it collectively like Atlas, till he was blasted out of it through the alien invasion and despatched flying into Gotham (sure, that Gotham) the place he labored with Batman to get again to Apollo. The final we noticed of him, The Foundation had made it again to Apollo and is now looking for Jonesy. He additionally helpfully defined his mission–to Batman of all people–saying, “I lead a group… The Seven. Our goal is to stop The Order, liberate The Zero Point, and destroy The Loop.” Why? We’re undecided but.2. Doctor SloneFor Slone, the tip at all times justifies the means.Slone has made a reputation for herself by being the ruthless chief of the IO–or a minimum of the highest-ranking member we have met to this point. Her ruthlessness will not be in query, anyway. She first appeared in Chapter 2, Season 7, and recruited loopers (gamers) in combating again in opposition to the invasion of The Last Reality. But she would later betray them when she left loopers to die within the blast zone of the bomb they helped sneak onboard the alien Mothership. Her betrayal did not go completely to plan although, because the cubes woke up and took over Apollo, saving some loopers, however resulting in the Chapter 2 finale.Slone’s historical past is hinted at all through Fortnite, together with an unlockable loading display that depicts the lifelong coaching she underwent in an effort to get her to the place she is at present. While we do not but know whether or not she solutions to anybody increased than herself, we do know she seems to stay pivotal within the Fortnite storyline for a very long time to return, as she is straight tousled within the net of intrigue that surrounds The Seven and the Imagined Order.1. John JonesAs goes Jonesy, so goes the complete Fortnite storyline.John Jones AKA Agent Jones AKA, most famously, Jonesy, is the protagonist of Fortnite. It’s by means of his eyes and Troy Baker-voiced phrases that we expertise a lot of the Fortnite story. Jones was a member of the Imagined Order who was despatched to restore the Zero Point in Chapter 2, and to that finish, he recruited most of the omniverse’s biggest hunters to assist defend it, akin to Ellen Ripley, Sarah Connor, and The Mandalorian. When he was unable to guard it, Jones defied his IO instructions and contacted The Seven within the determined hope that they may save actuality. The IO wasn’t able to do such a factor as it could re-ignite the wrestle between the 2 sides, so Jones ditched them for what he noticed because the higher good. With The Foundation’s assist, Jones was in a position to defend the Zero Point, a minimum of for some time.Throughout Fortnite, we have seen Jones reappear as numerous “snapshots,” or alternate variations of himself. When gamers loop again onto the island and combat for or in opposition to the Zero Point, (the in-universe justification for rounds of battle royale), they will typically come again modified. The many faces that Jonesy wears are thus alternate variations of the identical hero, whether or not he is dressed like a cabbie, a cow, or like Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Jones is caught squarely in the midst of the feud between the IO and The Seven, and his story will not be practically full simply but. In all probability, Jones will stay on the coronary heart of every thing Fortnite for years to come–no matter how he is dressed.
