The protagonist in Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War is an avatar the player is required to create at the start of each game. Their goal is to earn fame and glory by winning battles and completing the various assigned tasks given to them. In time, their success enables them to meet other individuals who are involved with the war. This eventually gives way to their path in becoming the first known mercenary general.
Similar to Samurai Warriors Chronicles, these characters are silent mercenaries whose choices and allegiances are determined entirely by the player.
The player can initially choose to alter their protagonist's gender, facial features, and voice. The facial features additionally changes a character's skin tone. There are three available attitudes for a character's voice. Each gender shares a young and mature sounding voice; the final option is either a wild (male) or gentle (female) tone.
After these three options are decided the player can then input their protagonist's name. These features have no extra bonuses included with them and are only present for aesthetic purposes. Armor can be used to customize their appearance, but an allegiance with England will have them wear red clothes whereas joining France changes them to blue.
Though their default weapon is swords and their default unit type are swordsmen, the protagonists are free to use any weapon or unit the player has earned or purchased. The protagonist's equipped weapon will also be used by their entire unit.
