Defenders of the Realm: Hero Expansion #5 includes three new heroes – with a miniature and character card for each hero. The new heroes introduced in this expansion are:
- Eliana the Centaur: Eliana's body allows her to move more quickly as a horse and her strength gives her bonuses in combat.
- Captain William the Mariner: Captain William uses the sea to help him travel faster across locations that are connected by water.
- Bartholomew the Bard: Bartholomew uses the power of song and poetry to give him special advantages in combat.
