Sung Jinwoo


Jinwoo is an E-rank Hunter, known as the “weakest” Hunter. Although a hunter, his physical abilities are barely superior to those of an ordinary person, and he ends up injured each time he participates in a dungeon. Despite everything, he continues his activity as a hunter in order to be able to take care of his sister and pay the hospitalization costs of his sick mother.

Following an incident during a double dungeon, he becomes a Player and obtains a system that gives access to various advantages similar to those of a video game character, such as quests, an inventory, or the ability to level up and get stronger with each level gained. It also later unlocks the shop.

Yoo Jinho


Jinwoo’s closest friend is a Korean D-rank hunter named Yoo Jinho. He comes from an extremely wealthy family and ends up becoming Jinwoo’s guild’s vice chairman after winning Jinwoo over with his unshakeable loyalty and dedication. Jinho also frequently wears extremely ostentatious and pricey armor, which functions as a big running joke in the series.

Sung Jinah


Sung Jinah is the protagonist’s younger sister. She has never been a Hunter like her brother and still goes to high school during the main part of the plot. She is between three and ten years younger than Jinwoo, but this has never been determined. Due to their parents’ fates, she was under the care of her older brother, which is why they are very close.

Park Kyung-Hye


The mother of Jinwoo and Jinah is Park Kyung-Hye. She developed Eternal Slumber, the magically-induced disease that causes eternal sleep, four years before the main plot’s events, and shortly afterward she fell into a coma, leaving Jinwoo as the primary caretaker of the family. A rare potion Jinwoo developed while he was learning the technique, however, allowed him to heal and awaken her four years later.

Lee Joohee


One of Jinwoo’s old acquaintances from his time as an E-rank Hunter is Lee Joohee, a Korean B-rank hunter whose specialty is healing magic. She and Jinwoo both make it out of the Double Dungeon alive, but she is still in shock and eventually withdraws due to the emotional trauma she experienced. She is a very compassionate person.

Cha Hae-In


She is one of the ten South Korean S-rank Hunters, ranked 9th, and also the only female of the ten. She was the Vice President of the Hunters Guild before asking Jinwoo to join her guild. She possesses a rare skill that allows her to smell the scent of every Hunter’s mana, which she hates except for Jinwoo’s.

Sung Il-Hwan


He was the father of Jinwoo and Jinah, Kyung-Hye’s husband, and a former S-rank Korean Hunter. He abruptly vanished during a raid in a dungeon ten years before the main plot’s events, with his family believing that he had died. He finally exposed himself to be a vessel of the Rulers, one of seven humans whom the Rulers selected to serve as hosts.

However, around ten years later, he came back to the world of the humans to help his son in the upcoming war against the Monarchs. Even though Il-Hwan’s request was finally successful, he died in his son’s arms after using more strength than his body could manage in his final conflict with the Monarchs.

Go Gunhee


He was an S-rank Korean Hunter and the leader of the organization in charge of regulating all guilds, portals, and hunters operating in Korea, the Korean Hunters Association. Although ultimately discovered to be a vessel of the Rulers, it had a number of health problems because of its ancient age, which prevented it from exercising its powers to its fullest extent. Ultimately, the Monarchs murdered him during a battle.

Thomas Andre


Thomas Andre is one of the top five hunters in the world and America’s strongest hunter. Because of his enormous size and powerful physique, he is likewise a vessel for the monarch and is known as Goliath. Later, after Jinwoo defeats him in combat, he befriends him and gives him Kamish’s Wrath, the most potent magical weapon in existence.

Liu Zhigang


The second-ranked hunter in the world, Liu Zhigang, is one of the five national-level hunters and the most powerful Hunter from China. He is also a representative of the Rulers, and up until Jinwoo overtook him as the most powerful hunter in Asia. He first meets Jinwoo during the yearly guild convention, and they subsequently become friends.

Christopher Reed


Christopher Reed is one of the strongest hunters in the United States, ranking third in the world. Unfortunately in both the novels and the manga you couldn’t see his full power of him as he died in an offscreen scene. In fact, he was the first of the seven vessels to be murdered by the Monarch, which is why his story was cut so short.

Goto Ryuji


The most formidable hunter in Japan was Goto Ryuji. Goto was exceedingly self-centered and had a very vile contempt for human life, which is especially ironic since he was a little fish in comparison to the national-level hunters. His arrogance eventually cost him his own life when, during an assault on the S rank gate on Jeju Island, a strong creature known as the Ant King murdered him in one swift motion.

He was one of Jinwoo’s shadow troops after he passed away.

Lennart Niermann


The best hunter in Germany and the 12th best in the world is Lennart Niermann. Lennart, despite being the greatest in his native land, is not overly haughty and is a very responsible and reliable person, as evidenced by his willingness to offer himself up as bait to prevent Thomas from being slain by the Monarchs.



Ashborn is the ruler of shadows and the king of the dead. In addition, he is the most powerful dictator and the biggest sliver of brilliant light. After spending ages fighting in the conflict between rulers and monarchs, Ashborn grew tired of the constant carnage.

As a result, he eventually decided to accept Jinwoo as his host in an effort to put an end to the violence once and for all. Later, when the Monarchs kill Jinwoo, Ashborn personally shows up to rescue him and then provides him with a thorough account of his background. Ashborn enters an eternal sleep after giving Jinwoo all of his remaining abilities and reviving him. This enables Jinwoo to succeed Ashborn as the shadow king.



The ruler of destruction and the king of dragons was Antares. On top of that, he was likewise the last and strongest king in Solo Leveling. Jinwoo murdered three previous monarchs before Antares attacked Earth to entice him out and kill him. He put out a valiant attempt, but ultimately his mission was unsuccessful, and the rulers slaughtered him.
