Feel free to add and post to whatever you like.

My personal opinions:

Lord Stanley the Plaid
Strong (personality)/Minority/Evil?/A child of his age
--//--/Minority/Evil?/A child of his age

The Arkenhammer
Sense of humour
Bad timing

Chief Croakamancer Wanda Firebaugh
Intelligent/Apt use of Modern Technology
Loose lips sink ships/Bad use of expletives

Prince Ansom
Respectful (Would undoubtedly not continue inviting Jillian if she told him not to. Yep, I made this whole thread to point that out. :) This is such a nice subsection of the forums.)
Overly caring of favorite subjects. (He wanted to send a hero and his bats at Dwagons??)

Warlord Jillian Zamussels
Yellow Hair, Kickass
Thin Armour, (& combo?) Barbarian

Henchman Bogroll
Fat, Prosy, Lack of dress
Lack of depth-vision, also makes for a large target, prosy

According to the cast page, Wanda is a member of the lost Croatan tribe. If "lost' means they are extinct, then the tragedy of her tribe's extinction would help explain why Wanda has lost her capacity for hope.
Losing her own tribe was painful enough, but since she's found a new home with the Plaid tribe, she been forced to watch the decline of the Plaid, to the status of a nearly lost tribe.

These factors may help explain why Wanda continues to serve Lord Stanley, even though she is clearly a more talented manager than he is. Not being a member of the Plaid tribe may be a political liability for her, but it's also possible that she feels the Plaid tribe's situation is so bad that she couldn't make it better, even if she did take over.

She seems to still be trying to find a way to prevent the final downfall of the Plaid, assuming her suggestion that they spend the funds needed to acquire the Perfect Warlord didn't conceal an ulterior motive. (It's possible she has some reason for making the suggestion to Lord Stanley beyond the hope that the summoned warlord might salvage a desperate situation.)
Patience is one of her strengths, so she probably hopes that even if the Plaid tribe follows the Croatan into extinction, she will still find a way to survive. Lord Stanley is also thinking about how he can survive the downfall of the Plaid, since he intends, if the capital city falls, to take the Arkenhammer and flee.
