There are different Dofus alignments to choose from. You will start off by default as neutral. Neutral alignments are linked to Amakna and they cannot aggress other characters. If someone tries to aggress a Neutral alignment player on neutral ground, that player will get a lvl 100 knight to fight for them. The other Dofus alignments you can choose from are Bontarian (The “Angels”), Brakmarian (The “Devils”) and the Seriane Kerm (The “Mercenaries”).
There are different benefits to Dofus alignments and which one you choose. The Bontarian side with the city of Bonta and are famous for their white angel-like wings that appear over their heads. Those who side with the city of Brakmar are the Brakmarian and will have red devil-like wings above their names. Finally, the Seriane Kerm does not have a city of their own but their headquarters is in Astrub. This Dofus alignment takes contracts in exchange for money which is why they are called the mercenaries.
