In addition to the production and management aspects, Potionomics features a variety of expressive, surreal characters to interact with during your daily adventures. Not only can you interact with them and even start a relationship, but they also serve your store.
Every character in Potionomics is awesome, thanks to great writing and animation work. However, some people stand out a little more than others, either because of their personality or their ultimate usefulness. This list ranks each supporting cast from worst to best, but don’t worry, they’re all great and worth interacting with.
Survival hero Corsac is the second opponent you’ll meet in the match after Roxanne. A skilled hunter and adventurer, he personally gathers his own ingredients to craft potions, naturally making him a formidable foe.
Once you sit down and talk to him, Corsac suffers because he’s on the court too late. It’s hard to spend enough time getting to know him. However, his skill at imitating animals is always fun, and his massive base health, inventory, and potion capacity make him a great adventurer.
9/10 salt and pepper
This pair of cat pirates comes later in the game. Once you unlock them, you can spend quite a bit of money to get a piece of their treasure. Other than that, Salt and Pepper are a pretty hilarious duo, with Salt doing most of the talking and constantly hyping the bigger but shy Pepper.
Salt and Pepper are a great duo, but the fact that they’re leaning on their hips does hurt their personalities a bit. They’re also the only characters in the game that you can’t romance, and if you choose the right option, they become “blood brothers” to Sylvia. The concept of cat pirates is too big to ignore, though.
Luna is a four-armed moth girl you’ll meet very early on. Through her marketing, she can raise the price of certain potions over the next few days, which is a huge advantage. In terms of character, Luna is almost like a modern influencer. She’s been on the phone looking for new clients.
She may sound a bit stereotypical, but her enthusiasm and charm are contagious, not to mention her cute designs. Her biggest problem is that the cards she gives you are hard to use. They encourage you to take a lot of stress, but doing so often makes your life harder.
As the current manager of the Heroes Guild, Baptiste exudes charm and flamboyance wherever he goes. He’ll let you invest in his hero’s crusade, which has a good chance of rewarding you with rare materials. His cards, some of which allow you to restore your client’s patience, are very powerful.
Baptiste is a very interesting presence, and he’s always worth spending some time with. His innocence is charming, but never annoying. However, his expeditions were prohibitively expensive and rarely felt worthwhile. You’re usually better off investing in your true adventurer.
Saffron is a forest hermit carpenter whom Sylvia meets in the woods. She’s a calm, relaxed woman, and her card reflects that by focusing on reducing your stress. You’ll find these cards invaluable as you meet increasingly tough customers.
More valuable, however, is what Saffron offers you. As a carpenter, she provides more space for shelves and potions in Sylvia’s store. Saffron’s service will be the most important since you need to increase potion and earning plan. Please pay attention to their prices.
5/10 West Germany
A world-famous superstar by day and a seasoned adventurer by night, Xidriel is the second adventurer you’ll meet after Mint. She has a higher starting mana pool, allowing you to focus more on improving her health and other stats. This gives her a big boost to Mint, whose basic stats aren’t much to write home about.
Otherwise, Xid is just a cool character. Sylvia is a big fan of her, and when you get to know her duality, chances are you’ll be too. She has many interesting cards, such as chorus, that start out weak, but the more you play in an encounter, the stronger it gets.
The walrus artisan Muktuk is lively, confident and fun. In his storyline, Sylvia is less arrogant and more confident in her abilities, and he helps him pull off a great work that will be remembered for generations to come.
Thankfully, Muktuk lent you his talents, and they’re priceless. For the price, he’ll give you the cauldrons and racks you need to make and sell potions. His cards focus on building up your power for one massive blow at a time. All in all, he’s not only a great character, but a very useful one.
Mint, being the first adventurer you meet, doesn’t have the basic attributes of Corsac or Xid. What she has is a successful personality, with her huge potential to level up, and some really useful cards that can protect you and deal damage.
Mint is a complete adventurer fangirl who wants to prove she’s a great hero. Her charming personality will make you want to come back again and again to see how far she has come. Frankly, it’s also nice to see a female character with actual muscles.
As the first antagonist you encounter, Roxanne is an unashamed asshole who often provokes Sylvia with taunts. However, Roxanne takes refuge in Sylvia’s basement after casting herself as a demon, where she offers magical spells that can influence customers’ perceptions of your potions.
It’s always fun to interact with Roxanne and her banter with Sylvia is great. Watching her try to resist her demonic urge to be a prestigious businesswoman is a truly interesting arc. If you choose to fall in love with her, no one will blame you.
Quinn, the non-binary witch, runs the ingredient store, probably the most important location in all of Potionomics. With Quinn, you’ll buy the vast majority of ingredients needed to make potions, while giving them new ones that they’ll then add to their inventory.
Not to mention how useful their cards are, it allows you to quickly cycle through your deck and look for new cards. However, aside from their usefulness, Quinn is just a really good character. They are mean and often tired, but also have a lot to do beneath the surface.
