All of the supporting characters are either NPCs in the game, or are player characters. The only made-up NPCs are some of Ringo and Beli's relatives.
His constant companion is a white bear named Frostmaw.
Ringo is the only member of his immediate family not to fight during the Third War. He had been a member of Feranor Steeltoe's expedition to kill the drake . Ringo's leg was broken when a slain dragon whelp fell on him. He has since risen to the rank of Knight-Captain with the Alliance.
Both of Ringo's parents were slain by the Burning Legion. As a result, he has been haunted for years by nightmares of the Burning Legion invading Khaz Modan. Because of just such a dream, he set out for Quel'thalas to see what connection, if any, the blood elves have with the Legion and ultimately joined forces with the Shattered Sun Offensive. Along the way, he has acquired an , ironically putting him in closer contact with demons than he has previously been comfortable with.
Ringo and Beli were part of the initial Alliance expedition to the Azuremyst Isles following the crash of the Exodar. Of course, they mistakenly believed the draenei were demons and almost caused a diplomatic incident thanks to their guerrilla attacks on Azure Watch.
Ringo participated in the Ashen Verdict's defeat of Arthas Menethil and retired to Khaz Modan, enlisting as a Dwarven Mountaineer, serving in Loch Modan. But although he desperately wants to be an attentive father and husband and raise Bael, he's found retirement difficult. His fellow mountaineers view him as throwing his history as an adventurer in their faces, civilians treat him with disrespect and, worst of all, he chafes at the boredom of a relatively sedentary life.
Following being turned to stone, Ringo has pushed his official orders to the limit, setting out on a self-imposed mission to find a cure for his king. Beli has returned home to Thelsamar to repair the damage to the town done by .
Ringo is the second youngest child in a family of boys, although he is the only known survivor of the Third War in his immediate family.
He and Ringo's mother died during the Battle of Mount Hyjal.
Ringo has a number of brothers, all but one of them older than him. All of them were among the riflemen taken to Northrend with and stranded there once burned the fleet's ships.
The second-oldest Flinthammer Boy, Bragh is exceptionally good with animals, and he and Bethaine used to spend days in the wilds of Dun Morogh, living with the animals. His skill as a tracker and animal-handler led Muradin's agent to hire him for the Northrend expedition, and when Bragh was hired, the rest insisted on being hired as well.
Bragh is as silent as Durkon is talkative, and will often tag along with his older brother on adventures.
The oldest of the Flinthammer Boys, Durkon Flinthammer is a famous dwarven hero, making his name during the Second War. He is smarter, tougher, stronger, faster and deadlier than his younger brothers, and never lets his brothers forget it. (And, unfortunately, he seems to be right about all of it.) Only Bragh can stand to be around him for extended periods of time.
Ringo's youngest brother, who sent word to Ringo in Quel'Danas via , saying that he was alive and living in Valgarde. Unlike his brothers, he has always been more interested in economics and finances than warfare, and served under the quartermaster while serving with the the Ironforge Mountaineers.
Ringo's brother Mordun is the middle child of the family, older than Ringo, but younger than Durkon and Bragh. Perennially filthy, often drunk and more than a little wild, his brothers always claim he's secretly a Wildhammer dwarf their family adopted.

Beli is a dwarf priest and a member of the Bronzebeard Clan. Although she spent much of her formative years in Lakeshire -- and was, in fact, named after -- she is a native of Khaz Modan. met her as a child, and often teased her that she looked a great deal like his daughter.
She is a Lieutenant Commander with the Alliance, and has received a special commendation from High Tinker . Despite her high rank, she hates bugs and had fought with Ringo in a vain attempt to not participate in the War of the Shifting Sands in Silithus.
Much to Ringo's distress, she has adopted a Murloc child, who has proven to be loyal, if extremely mischievous.
She is an outspoken critic of Senator Barin Redstone.
Beli is the youngest of three children. Her entire family cheats at games of chance, much to Ringo's irritation.
Beli's brother, the eldest child of the Rockbottom family. What he does for a living is an open question, leading Ringo to believe Kort is a Rogue, although Kort denies it.
Beli's brother, the middle child. Unusually for a dwarf, he is incredibly lazy, with no discernible ambition or job skills.
Kort's scantily attired wife.
He enjoys torturing Lucky, a black lion Ringo tamed specifically to be his son's companion and guardian.
