Ivor is the secondary antagonist turned anti-hero of Minecraft: Story Mode. He is a disgruntled former member of the Order of the Stone.
He is voiced by Paul Reubens.
Ivor, at first, appears to be grouchy, impatient, arrogant, aggressive and shady. He immediately takes a disliking to Jesse apon meeting him/her. He seems to hold a large grudge against his former teammates, as seen mostly with Gabriel. He is also somewhat cowardly, and is fully aware of it, as seen when he loses control of The Wither Storm and he runs away.
Ivor, in a way, does have a sense or honor. His main motive of creating The Wither Storm was to prove that Gabriel and the others were frauds. He also went out of his way to find Jesse's Gang to warn them that the Wither Storms wer following Gabriel's Amulet, despite his poor relationship with them, and showed remorse when he found out that Jesse had it, showing that he cared for them. During the final battle against The Wither Storms, when either an amnesiac Gabriel or a cowardly Soren run off from the group, Ivor runs after them, to make sure they don't get hurt. Despite this honor, he can be dishonest at times, such as scamming Petra on a deal by giving her lapis instead of a diamond like he promised, and trying to reveal The Order of the Stone's lies to the world despite promising to keep the truth a secret in exchange for all their treasures.
Ever since redeeming himself be showing his motives and giving Jesse and his/her friends armor and Jesse a weapon, Ivor, while still rather aggressive and arrogant, shows a more caring and supportive side, even directly saving Jesse's life at one point. He is shown to be more eccentric and excitable, especially when it comes to adventures and treasure. Like many characters, he sympathizes with Jesse regarding Reuben's death. He also sympathizes with Harper, due to her having a similar past to him and admires her.
Ivor, alongside his friends Soren, Gabriel, Elleegard, and Magnus, were once members of the Order of the Stone, a group of supposed legendary heroes. Along with the others, he defeated the Ender Dragon and entered the legend. However, Ivor left the Order due to the Order lying about their legend and being frauds: Whatever legendary powers and abilities that the Order had were not learned from training, experience, and study that allowed them to overcome challenging obstacles like Ender Dragon itself, but rather granted by Soren in secret with Command Block' reality warping ability. Therefore, the Order themselves actually don't know how to use their granted powers that they not ready against Ender Dragon in their supposed legendary battle, prompt Soren to use Command Block again to destroy the Dragon, this time, in front of his friends. Gabriel, Elleegard, and Magnus tolerate Soren when he revealed that his Command Block was source of their powers, and even agreed to made up the story of their supposed legendary battle to avoid facing ridicule for incapability to defeat Ender Dragon.
Since that moment, despite the Order giving him all their treasures in exchange for keeping the truth secret, he vowed to get revenge on all the order and came up with the idea to summon a special Wither, with the command block used to defeat the Ender Dragon.
Minecraft Story Mode
Episode 1: Order of the Stone
Ivor was going to trade with Petra for a wither skull, and in return, Petra was going to get a diamond. When both Petra and Jesse go back to the city, both of them went to a dark alley to trade with Ivor. However, Ivor wasn't present, making Petra search for Ivor, while leaving Jesse behind incase Ivor comes.
Then, Ivor makes his first appearance, and meeting Jesse for the first time. Jesse tries to stall, but Ivor starts to leave and decline the trade. Luckily, Petra comes back in time with the wither skull. As Petra gives Ivor the wither skull, Ivor tells both of them to get the diamond from the nearby chest. However, when they open the chest, there was only Lapis Lazuli, confirming it was a scam all along.
Because of this, Petra joins Jesse's Gang and all of them try to find Ivor. When they found Ivor coming to Gabriel's presention, they try to stop them, but the Usher blocked their path, stopping Jesse and his gang from getting past.
After when they collected enough slimeballs to craft a slimeblock, they do so to break the glass from the chicken machine, theUsher was distracted by the Chickens and ran away, letting them catch up to Ivor. As they got in the building, Jesse and the game went down the basement (AKA Ivor's Lair) and try to find the diamond for Petra. Axel and Jesse found a Fancy Potion and player determinant on who stole it.
However, Ivor came down the basement, surprising the gang. They all try to hide from Ivor, but they failed when Oliviaaccidentally dropped a potion. When they get caught, however, Ivor spawns an Iron Golem, which chases the gang (and also leaving Lukas behind).
With either choice Jesse makes (either rescuing Lukas or alerting Gabriel), Ivor comes and interrupts the keynote speech. After arguing with Gabriel, he then unleashes the Wither Storm, which terrifies the citizens, making them evacuate. Gabriel the Warrior wasn't able to stop it, but Ivor attempts to stop it himself by telling the 'creature' to stop, but also fails as well. Ivor then resorts to his 'Fancy Potion', but since Axel/Jesse stole the real Potion, Ivor uses the wrong one which doesn't affect the Wither Storm.
Jesse grabs out Ivor's Fancy Potion and throws it at the Command Block, but the Wither Storm detected this and fully protected its Command Block core before he could throw it. As the Wither Storm grows, all of them evacuate as well and ran to Gabriel's temple. At Gabriel's temple, a nether portal is found and Jesse lights the portal up and some of his / her friends go through and Ivor follows after them.
After Jesse and Lukas are knocked into the Nether, the group (minus Petra) confront Ivor, where he tells Jesse that the minecart track is the only way out of the Nether before using an invisibility potion and vanishing.
Later on when Jesse and his / her friends find the temple of the Order, where it is revealed that Ivor was one of the members of the Order of the Stone, but was kicked out as he distrusted Gabriel.
Episode 2: Assembly Required
In Assembly Required, whilst Jesse and his / her friends use the Amulet to find Soren, Ivor shows up on the map, shocking Jesse's friends as well as the Order. They all agree to stop him before he arrives at Soren's hideout. After Jesse is separated from Petra or Gabriel, he / her finds Ivor in the library, messing with the books. Even when Jesse asks him to calm down, he responds in a hostile manner and shoves him/her and attempts to escape. He wants to stop the Order from destroying the Wither Storm and believes he can do it himself. Petra or Gabriel show up to aid Jesse, and the three fight it out with swords and potions. After the duel, Jesse's friends show up to stop him, cornering Ivor. However, he surprises them with a slowness potion and walks off, locking them in. He doesn't appear until Episode 4, but shows up at the beginning of Episode 3 walking away.
Episode 4: A Block and a Hard Place
In A Block And A Hard Place, Ivor follows Jesse's Gang to their hideout where they are hiding from the Wither Storm. He is seen arguing with Soren. Jesse interrupts and Ivor reveals that he has a plan to help them destroy the Wither Storm. He explains that Jesse's Gang is in danger because he programmed the Wither Storm to track the Amulet. Jesse reveals that he has the Amulet, which Ivor didn't know. Soren explains that they saw Endermen pull apart the Wither Storm, and they create a plan to lure the Wither Storm towards Soren's Fortress (Which is infested with Endermen from the end flooding with water). Ivor explains that they are forgetting about the Command Block. He tells them that he has an Enchanted Book with the power of the Command Block itself in his fortress that they could use to create an Enchanted Weapon with the power to destroy the Command Block. Ivor tells them, however, that his fortress is in the Far Lands.
When Jesse's gang stumble upon a swamp on their journey to the Far Lands, Jesse sees a witch hut and decides to steal a cake from the hut. But Ivor tells him about witches, and the player can either choose to warn his/her friends or steal the cake. Ivor is not seen again until Soren tells the truth about the Order, at Ivor's fortress in the Far Lands.
After Soren tells the truth to Jesse, Ivor barges into the room containing his Enchanted Book, and tells Jesse about who the Order really are, along with why he unleashed the Wither Storm in the first place (which was to show the Minecraft world that the Order was a bunch of liars and cowards). Later when Jesse's gang return to Soren's temple with the Enchanted tool, (player-determinant) Gabriel or Soren run away from the gang, and Ivor pursues them. Ivor is seen again at Reuben's funeral. If the player decides to keep the truth about the Order hidden, Ivor will shake his head in disapproval and nod in approval if you let Gabriel tell the truth.
Episode 5: Order Up!In this episode and beyond, Ivor has become more heroic. Some time after Episode 4, he gives The New Order of the Stone a tip regarding a treasure in an old temple. After they return from the temple with a treasure, Ivor is seen in town arguing with the townspeople over his "new house", which reassembles a skull with tentacles, is made mostly of stone brick and has lava pouring out of its "mouth". Depending on Jesse's choices, the townspeople will either start tearing it down, much to Ivor's anger, or storm off, while Ivor gloats. Regardless, when Ivor learns that Jesse found a treasure, he says to meet them in The Treasure Room in ten minutes.
- Ivor is one of the few villains in the game who, gameplay-wise, can never directly kill Jesse.
- Ivor is one of the only four characters in the game who appears in all eight episodes, along with Jesse, Petra and Lukas.
