Power Trios are frequently embedded within larger ensembles. In this case, Three Plus Two is a Power Trio within a Five-Man Band. There are many variations on the Power Trio, but in RPGs, character specializations tend to boil down to strength, sorcery, or stealth.
Fighter: The Lightning Bruiser. A physical powerhouse of prodigious strength, the fighter solves problems by dicing or smashing them to bits. The fighter usually has the best armor, making him an effective Meat Shield, and he prefers melee weapons to ranged.
Mage: The Glass Cannon. A mighty wielder of arcane might, the mage has a tendency to die if enemies look at him funny. His method of solving problems therefore tends to consist of blowing them up before they can get to him.
Thief: The Fragile Speedster. Being quite a bit squishier than the fighter but not as much as the wizard, the thief relies on stealth and guile. Her method of solving problems typically involves sneaking by them, stabbing them in the back, or sniping them from a distance.

Non-sequential serial numbers, my favorite. [sniffs money]
They’re best friends. You can tell because they bicker Like An Old Married Couple. Like a beautiful and delicate snowflake, no two friendships are alike. Unlike the beautiful and delicate snowflake, some friendships break out the flamethrowers in the face of this sickening sweetness.
These guys bicker constantly. They’re always sniping at each other. They snark relentlessly. They duke it out on equal terms, hurling insults at one another with prejudice. But underneath the verbal fencing is a rock-solid friendship that no Smug Snake could hope to chip at. Often, they have opposite morals, personalities, or fighting ability, which is presumably the cause of the vitriol (or maybe it’s just because they’re both Deadpan Snarkers).Woe betide any outsider to this unusual ‘friendship’ who thinks that because one is constantly snarking on the other, it gives the outsider the right to make snide comments about the other as well; usually, they will quickly (and painfully) learn that “no one makes fun of him/her but me.”
