okay, getting some ideas for building characters. In the order of finishing them in my mind...
Rascus torso, no armor.
Green legs, standard stuff,
keep the Rascus head.
Give him a pirate sabre in one hand, take a knife and put it in the other.
If your Rascus has a horse, I suggest you put two more knives in the saddle.
For his hat, give him a forestmen hat.
If you really want to modify him, you can make him Sir Rascus, the noble forest man, and give him a forestmen torso as well.
Another possibility, and I like this one quite a bit, is the green captain torso from the Armada set.
The armada torso could work for any formal stuff you have him in, as well.
With me so far?
He needs a shield. I'd give him a long shield, but I probably wouldn't give him his wolf one. Hey, a classic Wolfpack one might work. But I digress.
Classic broadsword in the other hand...
His helmet, the one on the far right in this pic:
His armor... I thought there was a such a thing as classic knights armor, but it appears I'm wrong or something. It's the armor that's flatter, not puff-chested like the Armada. If there is, and you have it, give it to him. If I'm as delusional as I think I am, it seems the gray or chrome armada armor would work a charm. I'd say the gray. This, combined with the armor, gives him an almost quixotic charm in my eyes, for some reason.
The pattern on the purple torso strikes me as a Spanish thing, but from the Harry Potter sets, the Dumbledore torso might work if it so pleases you.
Gray legs, maybe, to tone down tackiness and give the illusion of chainmail leggings.
If you need a moc with Danju in a formal setting, I might suggest that he switches his purple color theme for a bit, and give him some long hair (gentlemanly styles)
To say I'm making these up on the fly is an understatement.
A kinda old Knights torso, the red one with the platemail scales.
Dark gray legs.
Armada armor for him, though, in my opinion, something good is on the horizon. If you buy any of the awful-looking Avatar sets (That's not to say some parts don't look cool - just the very thought of it is rather horrifying), the special armor pieces there might look alright on him. It's a tradeoff, the puff chest or the special piece.
Take a viking bearded axe. Double or single head is your choice, and slap it in his hand.
I suggest you give either give him one of the old, round shields, or give him a viking shield, if you can find an appropriate one.
His helmet, I suggest a black one with a noseguard, or a black armada helmet might look good.
Oh yeah, keep the Santis head.
For formal occasions, give Santis the Armada red captain torso:
I don't like this guy. He's getting annoyingly hard to think of good things for.
The blue Wizard torso seems like it would work pretty well, black or gray hands. Get some armor that doesn't look too puff-chested, preferrably gray, and make him don that. For his helmet, take one of the old gray ones with the molded-in grille.
<Seen on the horsemen here.
Luke Skywalker legs, if you so desire. OR, bonus! Whatever legs you honestly think look best on him!
Give him a scimitar. Gray, shiny, or black is up to you.
I can't think of anything at the moment for his formal wear.
I'm not liking Jayko any more.
EDIT: Didn't they used to make armor blueish? Maybe his blue armor plate could be of use.
Get rid of giant helmet, first. Cool design, poor proportions.
Instead, get him this helmet:
Add a red plume, the dragon plume is preferred.
Give him a black cape.
The Leather Armor pattern legs:

The striped armor plate torso, with black hands:

Then, you can either give him the big, black Alien shoulderpads, Black Samurai armor, (both of which would probably look very good in their own ways) or, if you so desire, his old armor suit.
Now, for weapons, give him one of those honkin' huge dark gray axes, the ones with the scary, vicious looking pattern. Optionally, give him a black katana in his saddle, and, if you so desire, a slightly anachronistic black flintlock rifle or pistol. (Arquebusier - Let's just say he went to China. Who's to say the villain's gonna fight fair?) (Also, okay, if it was a small cannon, it'd be much less anachronistic, but anachronistic indeed. You caught me.)
Be warned, you may wanna put the shoulderpad or armor on the neck first, then the cape, then the head.
I'm sure you can find something formal for him, if you so desire formal.
Matty can stay just the same.
However, I don't have a figure of the king, but all the pics I see, his crown looks tacky. Might wanna put an older crown on that, if that's the case. For weapon, the chrome zweihander/broadsword.
If I can get the instructions straight in my head, I'll be working on a special Santis sword.
EDIT: Got a special idea for Jayko. Give him a quiver, preferrably on one of the leg pegs, and a crossbow or bow/arrow.
