Wardlaw is a character in Trials of Indines. His first appearance was in Seven Card Slugfest, as the main antagonist.


  • "You're going down, chump!"


O'Brien is a villain to the core. Combining his already significant strength with the power of the mysterious Belt of Beatdown, O'Brien is capable of matching the strength of Daemons and Dragons alike. He travels the world of Indines, searching to gain more power by defeating the strongest fighters in the world.


Powers & Abilities

O'Brien is a grappler who throws opponents around the arena, slamming them into the ground and walls while walking through enemy attacks without flinching. His attacks are powerful and slow, but difficult to dodge.


Game appearances and playstyle

Trials of Indines

  • Wardlaw is a fearsome brawler who uses the edges of the arena to his advantage. He can slam opponents into walls for bonus damage, or leap from them for increased speed. He is adept at moving both himself and his opponents across the battlefield, in order to set up positions where his wall-based abilities will be most threatening.

Seven Card Slugfest

  • Sinister villian who wants to rule all of Indines, and also sports a pretty epic mustache. His punches do more or less damage based on the drink token his opponent takes.
