* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Killing the dreamselves of the kids before the story begins.
** And then she had God Cat simply teleport Roxy right in front of her, handily capturing her.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Seemingly [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]], but ultimately subverted. We were initially meant to believe English was savvy enough to go after ''[[RageAgainstTheAuthor the author]]''. Fast forward to Act 6 Intermission 4, and we learn that this was merely payback for Hussie's sass when English was a young man.

Also known as "the Baroness" and "the Batterwitch," the Condesce is Feferi's ancestor and Meenah's post-scratch iteration. In the original pre-scratch universe she was Colonel Sassacre's wife and the adoptive mother/grandmother of Grandpa Harley and Nanna Egbert. Although John says [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005375 Sassacre was Nanna's grandfather]], Nanna refers to Sassacre and Crocker as [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005856 her parents]]. She disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

In universe B2, she started a multi-global MegaCorp empire that is designated to be inherited by her great-great-granddaughter Jane Crocker (the post-Scratch incarnation of Nanna). Although presumed to be deceased, she is in fact controlling humanity through subliminal messaging.

She is eventually revealed to be [[Characters/HomestuckTrollsOne the Troll Empress]] and in the service of Lord English, not that everyone didn't know already. She briefly shaped events on pre-scratch Earth before disappearing in an unknown fashion and arriving on post-scratch Earth. It is known however that she has somehow entered the B2 Session and became the new queen of Derse. In the future of B2 Earth, she has also openly taken over and flooded the planet.

[[folder: Lord English]]
!!Lord English[=/=]Caliborn

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/he_is_already_here.png]]
The enigmatic leader of The Felt. An omnipotent, time-traveling demon who appears at the end of the universe, who we are ultimately introduced to when he bursts from Doc Scratch's shattered corpse. However, given that he can travel through time and space, only showing up at the end of the universe is hardly an inconvenience; [[ArcWords he is already here]].

His younger iteration, [[Characters/HomestuckCherubs Caliborn]], has his own separate character sheet.
----
* AbusivePrecursors: He is responsible for the existence of the main characters and their respective universes (though they also played a role in his rise to power thanks to time travel shenanigans). Dave jokingly wonders if he should thank Lord English.
* [[BadassLongcoat Badass Overcoat]]: His massive [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003153 CAIRO]] [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005128 OVERCOAT]]. Which has a double as a time traveling sarcophagus.
* BadBoss: He cares very little for the Felt and his manifestation in the universe definitively kills his [[TheDragon chief officer]].
* BigBad: The biggest of them all, of the entire webcomic. Vriska even calls him this. Interestingly, he only shows up properly just before Act 6.
** TheManBehindTheMan: Is the boss of Doc Scratch, who manipulated the entire series to ensure English's summoning.
** GreaterScopeVillain: To Jack Noir, Doc Scratch, and Betty Crocker all, surpassing them all in size, both literally and in villainous threat, but manipulating things behind the scenes, only showing up towards the end of Act 5. Doc Scratch portrays Lord as the Bigger Bad [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005531 to Rose]] in order to convince her that defeating Jack was worth releasing Lord English.
-->[He's more deadly. But the danger he poses is sanctioned by paradox space... there are rules to his entry, and his grim procession through paradox space is rather orderly. Jack however is a loose cannon. He will not stop until he destroys everything he encounters. Additionally, his existence is your responsibility.]
* BlingBlingBang: His pimp cane [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006705 turns into a gold-plated assault rifle]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006706 with a laser sight and strobing ammo clip.]]
* BreathWeapon: One powerful enough to explode a dream bubble. Note that this is a CallBack to [[Characters/HomestuckSprites Calsprite]], who had a similar ability.
* TheBrute: While he prefers to leave most of the heavy lifting to his more cunning underlings, when he gets personally involved he tends to just overpower everyone in his path. In fact, as a child, he had a learning disability. It remains to be seen whether or not he's overcome this to make up with experience what he lacks in cleverness.
* CallBack: To WV and CD talking to their kids. Invokes BreadEggsMilkSquick as it quickly turns nightmarish.
** English is basically an enormous demonic Lil' Cal with flashing billiard-ball eyes... [[{{Foreshadowing}} which is exactly how Hussie told Cal to dress]].
*** Taken farther; during Scratch's conversation with Rose, Hussie outright showed [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005531 the cue ball]] and a lizard in a Green Sun robe inside English's coat.
** WordOfGod is that Doc and English together are Gamzee's mirthful messiahs.
** Lord English emerges from Doc Scratch's puppet body, much like how a [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004008 Fiduspawn emerges from a host plush]].
*** Doc Scratch has often referred to himself as an excellent host.
** MythologyGag: His pimp cane/rifle has the same weapon/object duality as Kanaya's lipstick/chainsaw and as many, many objects in ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth''.
* TheCoatsAreOff: Removes his Cairo Overcoat before engaging Meenah's ghost army in combat.
* TheComicallySerious: He is hit with Deudly Firearms... while maintaining a perfectly straight face. (Though that might just be because has a SkullForAHead drawn in a fairly more realistic style compared to his juvenile counterpart.)
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Seemingly [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]], but ultimately subverted. We were initially meant to believe English was savvy enough to go after ''[[RageAgainstTheAuthor the author]]''. Fast forward to Act 6 Intermission 4, and we learn that this was merely payback for Hussie's sass when English was a young man.
* DiabolicalMastermind[=/=]RetroactivePreparation: Because he can time-travel, he sets up all the necessary requirements for his own summoning.
* TheDreaded: For most of the comic, he was not shown, and was only heralded by the phrase, "He is already here."
* EldritchAbomination: Lord English is not only a mob boss, but also an [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004153 indestructible time-traveling demon, summoned at the end of the universe]]. His eyes are rapidly [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/storyfiles/hs2/scratch/room117.gif flashing pool balls.]] The rest of his body is ''not'' any less disconcerting.
** He is also able to completely disintegrate the souls of dead players and can create cracks in reality itself.
** Made even worse when it's revealed that Lord English is some sort of fusion between the souls of Caliborn, Arquiusprite, and half of Gamzee stuffed inside Lil Cal and is some sort of nightmare that bleeds into universes to tear them apart.
* EvilCounterpart:
** To the Genesis Frog[=/=]Bilious Slick. Just as the Genesis Frog is the Speaker of the Vast Croak at the beginning of the universe, Lord English is the Speaker of the Vast Honk at its end.
** Sort of one to Doc Scratch (the difference, of course, is that they're both evil); while Doc is affable and enjoys humor, English is violent and stoic.
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: In-universe, English actually appears behind the fourth wall.
* FusionDance: It's eventually revealed that some version of Dirk Strider stuffed Caliborn's soul into Lil' Cal. Thing is, he also sucked in Arquiusprite's soul and possibly part of the soul of Gamzee Makara. The implication is that Lord English is the result of this.
* FutureBadass
* GrimReaper: Inspired the version in troll mythology. Later on he's called the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angel of]] [[DeaderThanDead Double Death]].
* GrossUpCloseUp: His face may look goofy when it is viewed from afar, but when you see it close up... [[NightmareFace Well, let's just say it's far from pretty]].
* HandicappedBadass: When he emerges, he has a peg-leg styled after a billiard cuestick.
* HeroKiller: Normal [[HeroKiller Hero Killers]] kill other characters. Lord English kills ''[[UpToEleven the author of the story]].'' And then he ''starts [[DeaderThanDead killing the heroes' ghosts]].''
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen[=/=]HiddenVillain: His first appearance was at the very end of ''Act 5''. Prior to that, he was TheGhost; we only knew his title and only got to see his coat and eyes.
* ImmuneToFate: Though it's not that he's immune to it so much as, as the Lord of Time, he makes it bend to his will.
* {{Jerkass}}: [[ExaggeratedTrope To the utmost extreme.]] What kind of asshole kills the author of the story, and then kills people ''[[DeaderThanDead who are already dead]]''?
* TheJuggernaut:
** His main power, from his [[DealWithTheDevil deal with Yaldaboath]] is the power to destroy anything and everything.
** As well as the awesome power of his ranged attacks Lord English is formidable with just his fists and brute strength.
* KickTheDog: He [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006690 attacks]] Ms. Paint for no reason, and she was not even close to resembling a threat to him.
* LargeAndInCharge: He's built like TheHulk, and his massive CAIRO OVERCOAT is way too big for most of the characters to wear without looking extremely silly.
* LargeHam: On the [[TheQuietOne one]] occasion he speaks as an adult.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://homestuck.bandcamp.com/track/english English]], used in the second Intermission. Also, [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007161 Eternity Served Cold]].
* LightningBruiser: We finally get to see him in action in [S] Collide and not only is he obscenely powerful, he's ''fast''.
* LordBritishPostulate: He's rumored to be kill-able only through a number of glitches and exploits in space-time. Note that the reference to Lord British himself was originally unintentional, but Hussie declared it a retroactive reference after fans pointed it out.
* MagicPants: Just like the Incredible Hulk.
* MagicWand: Has a scepter or cane similar to the White and Black Kings. The difference is that the scepter is gold, while the top is flashing multiple colors and is sometimes replaced with an image of the Green Sun. Also, it's bottom is a pool cue.
** SwissArmyWeapon: Can change into a [[BlingBlingBang golden assault rifle.]]
** He also has an actual magic wand (/revolver).
* MeaningfulName: The term "English" is often used when playing any sort of billiards game, when referring to a particularly powerful spin put on a ball hit by a player. Probably due to his (and the Felt's) connection with billiards. In-universe, he uses it because it was the name of the only opponent whose power he ever respected: Jake English... [[StableTimeLoop Who, in turn, is named after Lord English in an act of spite from his grandma's part.]]
* MergerOfSouls: Caliborn's "Masterpiece" revealed more of his true nature: not only is he Caliborn, but he is also Equius, Dirk's Auto-Responder, and half of Gamzee all mashed together inside Lil' Cal. Caliborn seems to be the dominant personality, though.
* MonsterModesty: Still wearing the torn remnants of Doc's pants.
* MoreDakka: Can transform his cane into a super-deudly golden machine gun.
* NamesTheSame: There's been a lot of confusion with [[Franchise/{{Ultima}} Lord British]] in terms of name origin. Andrew later [[AscendedFanon made the association meaningful]]. [[invoked]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In the process of destroying dream bubbles in hopes to kill his sister's dead dream self, he breaks through the reality that encompasses the Furthest Ring. How is this good? This allows Vriska, Tavros, and John to actually navigate the void guided by the cracks in reality, which lead him to the juju he earned from his own session, which can only be used once by him, and once by someone else. That someone else, incidentally, is John, who has gained RealityWarper abilities that enable him to re-write canon without needing to adhere to the in-universe rules of causality and time looping, not only enabling him to derail the plans of Lord English's subordinates, but also enabling him to set things up to give the good guys a fighting chance to defeat the Lord of Time once and for all.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [[WordOfGod According to Hussie]]:
-->''LE is many things. A time traveling crime lord pimp. An omnipotent, indestructible puppet-based demon. A monster born out of an ancient, short, smug, cueball-headed gunslinger, the blight of two universes by his birth alone. An Egyptian pharaoh [[TheIncredibleHulk Incredible Hulk]] in shredded pants and suspenders with a green [[Franchise/{{Saw}} Jigsaw]] puppet-like skull for head, a gold fang, and flashing pool balls for eyes. And with his gold cuestick pegleg and long coat, appears to also be somewhat reminiscent of a pirate, and may or may not bear some tenuous connection to Skipper Plumbthroat, nemesis of all Squiddles, who have been clearly shown to be friendly cartoon-standins for the dark gods.''
* NoIndoorVoice[=/=]VoiceOfTheLegion: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005976 Lord English's alt text is gigantic.]]
* NoShirtLongJacket
* NotSoDifferent: He actually has a lot of similarities with some of the protagonists, especially Vriska. Immaturity, rudeness, being a {{Munchkin}}, big ego, obsessiveness, bigotry, etc. The difference is that while the protagonists grow out of these traits, [[{{Jerkass}} Lord English doesn't bother making any effort to change]].
* OffscreenTeleportation: He is already here. (Showing up unexpectedly is kind of his schtick.)
* OhCrap: When the Green Sun is destroyed, [[BroughtDownToNormal his eyes stop warping]] and he shows genuine concern at Vriska's secret weapon.
* OmnicidalManiac: His endgame is simple: destroy everything that ever was and ever shall be.
* TheOmnipotent: See PhysicalGod below.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005530 According to Doc Scratch]], 'Lord English' is just a title he goes by - in part because his true name is apparently [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast terrifying]].
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: He's a cherub. Later on he's called the [[GrimReaper Angel of]] [[DeaderThanDead Double Death]].
* PhraseCatcher: "He is already here," and variants thereof.
* PhysicalGod: He is the single most powerful character in the comic, undisputedly. He was originally a cherub, which are already at world-destroying levels of power to begin with, got empowered through SBURB as a Lord of Time, giving him control over the timestream, won a dead session of SBURB, granting him CompleteImmortality, a weapon that can defeat any opponent in a single blow (but can only be used twice: once by himself, and once by someone else), and the ability to instantly travel wherever and ''when''ever he wants to across all universes and timelines. ''On top of all that'', he was infused with even greater physical strength, sprite-powers (innate knowledge of SBURB and giant energy beams of death), and the Chucklevoodoos of the Subjuggulators when his soul was combined with others', AND he was further infused with the power of the Green Sun when he emerged out of Doc Scratch's body. He's been shown to be capable of rending apart the very fabric of reality and obliterating the souls of the dead. For the final battle, Vriska and Meenah decide they need to rally an infinite army of ghosts (many of whom are God-tiered) ''just to slow him down'' enough to have a chance to use their trump card. At no point is it suggested said infinite army actually has a chance of stopping him.
* PimpDuds: His CAIRO OVERCOAT. In fitting with the trope, he often enslaves and empowers women to do his dirty work, such as Snowman, the Condesce, and the Handmaid.
** Although Snowman seems to work for him willingly.
* PunnyName:
** A reference to a type of spin used on a cue ball.
** His [[BadassLongcoat CAIRO OVERCOAT]] is a pun on CHICAGO OVERCOAT, Mobster slang for a coffin. Its object double is a sarcophagus.
* PsychopathicManchild: Type B. Caliborn overcame Calliope way too soon in their development process by killing her dream self, preventing them from maturing properly. Instead, his "personality is stuck in some sort of cantankerous prepubescent limbo. [He is] going to be a stunted, miserable tool forever."
* TheQuietOne: He has only spoken once as an adult thus far in the comic.
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: In Act 6 Intermission 2 he appears behind the fourth wall with Hussiebot's head. Later he shoots Hussie with an assault rifle.
* RedHerring: The trolls referring to an indestructible demon destroying their session [[EpilepticTrees suggested to readers that Lord English was responsible for it]]. [[{{Jossed}} This was deliberate misdirection]]; WordOfGod actually calls him a "red herring villain in that session to deter speculation."
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Scratch's blue.
* ReligionOfEvil: Kurloz Makara makes it quite explicit that he, Gamzee, and the subjuggulators worship him.
* ShroudedInMyth: Very few characters have seen him and lived.
* SigilSpam: His billiard eyes recur from time to time, and he's recently become associated with spirals as well, which adds even more SigilSpam retroactively.
* SoulJar: Caliborn turns Lil' Cal into this, thus ensuring the rise of his future self.
* StableTimeLoop: For much of Act 5, the story had been hinting that he was the ultimate cause of all the problems with the human and troll sessions and that he was a master of time. As Act 6 progresses, of course, the story has become more complex as the humans and trolls have influenced his sister and his own childhood in turn.
* StrawMisogynist: Porrim speculates, based on his apparent preference for placing women under his power, that he enjoys being ''especially'' nasty to women. Considering [[HeManWomanHater what he was like in his youth]], it's not an unreasonable assumption on her end.
* TragicVillain: Surprisingly, Vriska suggests that he may be this. She argues that for all his bluster and dramatics, he's ultimately just a miserly, lonely, and depressed child who's egotism and obsession with being the best prevented him from ever gaining any true love or friendship. However, it's possible that she may be projecting a bit.
* TheUnReveal:
** No, [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005128 he's not actually]] [[AuthorAvatar Andrew Hussie]].
** And then [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005981 again]], when he actually does appear. All we see are his eyes.
** [[TheUntwist The Shitty Twist]]: [[invoked]] He's Caliborn, all grown up. There were a handful of moments to foreshadow this, though.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: '''Averted'''. As Caliborn, he was almost as bad as he is now, just smaller and constrained. It turns out that he's also ''still'' a kid -- he only looks like an adult because he fused with multiple other beings, and one of them was the muscular Arquiusprite.
* WalkingSpoiler: He spends a good portion of the comic simply being TheDreaded before his official arrival - at which point he wastes no time in killing a good portion of the cast.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude:
-->@@GT: So im named after a demon? What kind of demon is named english anyway?\\
TT: What kind of alien is named Crocker?@@
* WouldHitAGirl: "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006690 CANE!]]"

!!Lord English[=/=]Caliborn

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/he_is_already_here.png]]
The enigmatic leader of The Felt. An omnipotent, time-traveling demon who appears at the end of the universe, who we are ultimately introduced to when he bursts from Doc Scratch's shattered corpse. However, given that he can travel through time and space, only showing up at the end of the universe is hardly an inconvenience; [[ArcWords he is already here]].

His younger iteration, [[Characters/HomestuckCherubs Caliborn]], has his own separate character sheet.
----
* AbusivePrecursors: He is responsible for the existence of the main characters and their respective universes (though they also played a role in his rise to power thanks to time travel shenanigans). Dave jokingly wonders if he should thank Lord English.
* [[BadassLongcoat Badass Overcoat]]: His massive [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003153 CAIRO]] [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005128 OVERCOAT]]. Which has a double as a time traveling sarcophagus.
* BadBoss: He cares very little for the Felt and his manifestation in the universe definitively kills his [[TheDragon chief officer]].
* BigBad: The biggest of them all, of the entire webcomic. Vriska even calls him this. Interestingly, he only shows up properly just before Act 6.
** TheManBehindTheMan: Is the boss of Doc Scratch, who manipulated the entire series to ensure English's summoning.
** GreaterScopeVillain: To Jack Noir, Doc Scratch, and Betty Crocker all, surpassing them all in size, both literally and in villainous threat, but manipulating things behind the scenes, only showing up towards the end of Act 5. Doc Scratch portrays Lord as the Bigger Bad [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005531 to Rose]] in order to convince her that defeating Jack was worth releasing Lord English.
-->[He's more deadly. But the danger he poses is sanctioned by paradox space... there are rules to his entry, and his grim procession through paradox space is rather orderly. Jack however is a loose cannon. He will not stop until he destroys everything he encounters. Additionally, his existence is your responsibility.]
* BlingBlingBang: His pimp cane [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006705 turns into a gold-plated assault rifle]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006706 with a laser sight and strobing ammo clip.]]
* BreathWeapon: One powerful enough to explode a dream bubble. Note that this is a CallBack to [[Characters/HomestuckSprites Calsprite]], who had a similar ability.
* TheBrute: While he prefers to leave most of the heavy lifting to his more cunning underlings, when he gets personally involved he tends to just overpower everyone in his path. In fact, as a child, he had a learning disability. It remains to be seen whether or not he's overcome this to make up with experience what he lacks in cleverness.
* CallBack: To WV and CD talking to their kids. Invokes BreadEggsMilkSquick as it quickly turns nightmarish.
** English is basically an enormous demonic Lil' Cal with flashing billiard-ball eyes... [[{{Foreshadowing}} which is exactly how Hussie told Cal to dress]].
*** Taken farther; during Scratch's conversation with Rose, Hussie outright showed [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005531 the cue ball]] and a lizard in a Green Sun robe inside English's coat.
** WordOfGod is that Doc and English together are Gamzee's mirthful messiahs.
** Lord English emerges from Doc Scratch's puppet body, much like how a [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004008 Fiduspawn emerges from a host plush]].
*** Doc Scratch has often referred to himself as an excellent host.
** MythologyGag: His pimp cane/rifle has the same weapon/object duality as Kanaya's lipstick/chainsaw and as many, many objects in ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth''.
* TheCoatsAreOff: Removes his Cairo Overcoat before engaging Meenah's ghost army in combat.
* TheComicallySerious: He is hit with Deudly Firearms... while maintaining a perfectly straight face. (Though that might just be because has a SkullForAHead drawn in a fairly more realistic style compared to his juvenile counterpart.)
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Seemingly [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]], but ultimately subverted. We were initially meant to believe English was savvy enough to go after ''[[RageAgainstTheAuthor the author]]''. Fast forward to Act 6 Intermission 4, and we learn that this was merely payback for Hussie's sass when English was a young man.
* DiabolicalMastermind[=/=]RetroactivePreparation: Because he can time-travel, he sets up all the necessary requirements for his own summoning.
* TheDreaded: For most of the comic, he was not shown, and was only heralded by the phrase, "He is already here."
* EldritchAbomination: Lord English is not only a mob boss, but also an [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004153 indestructible time-traveling demon, summoned at the end of the universe]]. His eyes are rapidly [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/storyfiles/hs2/scratch/room117.gif flashing pool balls.]] The rest of his body is ''not'' any less disconcerting.
** He is also able to completely disintegrate the souls of dead players and can create cracks in reality itself.
** Made even worse when it's revealed that Lord English is some sort of fusion between the souls of Caliborn, Arquiusprite, and half of Gamzee stuffed inside Lil Cal and is some sort of nightmare that bleeds into universes to tear them apart.
* EvilCounterpart:
** To the Genesis Frog[=/=]Bilious Slick. Just as the Genesis Frog is the Speaker of the Vast Croak at the beginning of the universe, Lord English is the Speaker of the Vast Honk at its end.
** Sort of one to Doc Scratch (the difference, of course, is that they're both evil); while Doc is affable and enjoys humor, English is violent and stoic.
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: In-universe, English actually appears behind the fourth wall.
* FusionDance: It's eventually revealed that some version of Dirk Strider stuffed Caliborn's soul into Lil' Cal. Thing is, he also sucked in Arquiusprite's soul and possibly part of the soul of Gamzee Makara. The implication is that Lord English is the result of this.
* FutureBadass
* GrimReaper: Inspired the version in troll mythology. Later on he's called the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angel of]] [[DeaderThanDead Double Death]].
* GrossUpCloseUp: His face may look goofy when it is viewed from afar, but when you see it close up... [[NightmareFace Well, let's just say it's far from pretty]].
* HandicappedBadass: When he emerges, he has a peg-leg styled after a billiard cuestick.
* HeroKiller: Normal [[HeroKiller Hero Killers]] kill other characters. Lord English kills ''[[UpToEleven the author of the story]].'' And then he ''starts [[DeaderThanDead killing the heroes' ghosts]].''
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen[=/=]HiddenVillain: His first appearance was at the very end of ''Act 5''. Prior to that, he was TheGhost; we only knew his title and only got to see his coat and eyes.
* ImmuneToFate: Though it's not that he's immune to it so much as, as the Lord of Time, he makes it bend to his will.
* {{Jerkass}}: [[ExaggeratedTrope To the utmost extreme.]] What kind of asshole kills the author of the story, and then kills people ''[[DeaderThanDead who are already dead]]''?
* TheJuggernaut:
** His main power, from his [[DealWithTheDevil deal with Yaldaboath]] is the power to destroy anything and everything.
** As well as the awesome power of his ranged attacks Lord English is formidable with just his fists and brute strength.
* KickTheDog: He [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006690 attacks]] Ms. Paint for no reason, and she was not even close to resembling a threat to him.
* LargeAndInCharge: He's built like TheHulk, and his massive CAIRO OVERCOAT is way too big for most of the characters to wear without looking extremely silly.
* LargeHam: On the [[TheQuietOne one]] occasion he speaks as an adult.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://homestuck.bandcamp.com/track/english English]], used in the second Intermission. Also, [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007161 Eternity Served Cold]].
* LightningBruiser: We finally get to see him in action in [S] Collide and not only is he obscenely powerful, he's ''fast''.
* LordBritishPostulate: He's rumored to be kill-able only through a number of glitches and exploits in space-time. Note that the reference to Lord British himself was originally unintentional, but Hussie declared it a retroactive reference after fans pointed it out.
* MagicPants: Just like the Incredible Hulk.
* MagicWand: Has a scepter or cane similar to the White and Black Kings. The difference is that the scepter is gold, while the top is flashing multiple colors and is sometimes replaced with an image of the Green Sun. Also, it's bottom is a pool cue.
** SwissArmyWeapon: Can change into a [[BlingBlingBang golden assault rifle.]]
** He also has an actual magic wand (/revolver).
* MeaningfulName: The term "English" is often used when playing any sort of billiards game, when referring to a particularly powerful spin put on a ball hit by a player. Probably due to his (and the Felt's) connection with billiards. In-universe, he uses it because it was the name of the only opponent whose power he ever respected: Jake English... [[StableTimeLoop Who, in turn, is named after Lord English in an act of spite from his grandma's part.]]
* MergerOfSouls: Caliborn's "Masterpiece" revealed more of his true nature: not only is he Caliborn, but he is also Equius, Dirk's Auto-Responder, and half of Gamzee all mashed together inside Lil' Cal. Caliborn seems to be the dominant personality, though.
* MonsterModesty: Still wearing the torn remnants of Doc's pants.
* MoreDakka: Can transform his cane into a super-deudly golden machine gun.
* NamesTheSame: There's been a lot of confusion with [[Franchise/{{Ultima}} Lord British]] in terms of name origin. Andrew later [[AscendedFanon made the association meaningful]]. [[invoked]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In the process of destroying dream bubbles in hopes to kill his sister's dead dream self, he breaks through the reality that encompasses the Furthest Ring. How is this good? This allows Vriska, Tavros, and John to actually navigate the void guided by the cracks in reality, which lead him to the juju he earned from his own session, which can only be used once by him, and once by someone else. That someone else, incidentally, is John, who has gained RealityWarper abilities that enable him to re-write canon without needing to adhere to the in-universe rules of causality and time looping, not only enabling him to derail the plans of Lord English's subordinates, but also enabling him to set things up to give the good guys a fighting chance to defeat the Lord of Time once and for all.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [[WordOfGod According to Hussie]]:
-->''LE is many things. A time traveling crime lord pimp. An omnipotent, indestructible puppet-based demon. A monster born out of an ancient, short, smug, cueball-headed gunslinger, the blight of two universes by his birth alone. An Egyptian pharaoh [[TheIncredibleHulk Incredible Hulk]] in shredded pants and suspenders with a green [[Franchise/{{Saw}} Jigsaw]] puppet-like skull for head, a gold fang, and flashing pool balls for eyes. And with his gold cuestick pegleg and long coat, appears to also be somewhat reminiscent of a pirate, and may or may not bear some tenuous connection to Skipper Plumbthroat, nemesis of all Squiddles, who have been clearly shown to be friendly cartoon-standins for the dark gods.''
* NoIndoorVoice[=/=]VoiceOfTheLegion: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005976 Lord English's alt text is gigantic.]]
* NoShirtLongJacket
* NotSoDifferent: He actually has a lot of similarities with some of the protagonists, especially Vriska. Immaturity, rudeness, being a {{Munchkin}}, big ego, obsessiveness, bigotry, etc. The difference is that while the protagonists grow out of these traits, [[{{Jerkass}} Lord English doesn't bother making any effort to change]].
* OffscreenTeleportation: He is already here. (Showing up unexpectedly is kind of his schtick.)
* OhCrap: When the Green Sun is destroyed, [[BroughtDownToNormal his eyes stop warping]] and he shows genuine concern at Vriska's secret weapon.
* OmnicidalManiac: His endgame is simple: destroy everything that ever was and ever shall be.
* TheOmnipotent: See PhysicalGod below.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005530 According to Doc Scratch]], 'Lord English' is just a title he goes by - in part because his true name is apparently [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast terrifying]].
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: He's a cherub. Later on he's called the [[GrimReaper Angel of]] [[DeaderThanDead Double Death]].
* PhraseCatcher: "He is already here," and variants thereof.
* PhysicalGod: He is the single most powerful character in the comic, undisputedly. He was originally a cherub, which are already at world-destroying levels of power to begin with, got empowered through SBURB as a Lord of Time, giving him control over the timestream, won a dead session of SBURB, granting him CompleteImmortality, a weapon that can defeat any opponent in a single blow (but can only be used twice: once by himself, and once by someone else), and the ability to instantly travel wherever and ''when''ever he wants to across all universes and timelines. ''On top of all that'', he was infused with even greater physical strength, sprite-powers (innate knowledge of SBURB and giant energy beams of death), and the Chucklevoodoos of the Subjuggulators when his soul was combined with others', AND he was further infused with the power of the Green Sun when he emerged out of Doc Scratch's body. He's been shown to be capable of rending apart the very fabric of reality and obliterating the souls of the dead. For the final battle, Vriska and Meenah decide they need to rally an infinite army of ghosts (many of whom are God-tiered) ''just to slow him down'' enough to have a chance to use their trump card. At no point is it suggested said infinite army actually has a chance of stopping him.
* PimpDuds: His CAIRO OVERCOAT. In fitting with the trope, he often enslaves and empowers women to do his dirty work, such as Snowman, the Condesce, and the Handmaid.
** Although Snowman seems to work for him willingly.
* PunnyName:
** A reference to a type of spin used on a cue ball.
** His [[BadassLongcoat CAIRO OVERCOAT]] is a pun on CHICAGO OVERCOAT, Mobster slang for a coffin. Its object double is a sarcophagus.
* PsychopathicManchild: Type B. Caliborn overcame Calliope way too soon in their development process by killing her dream self, preventing them from maturing properly. Instead, his "personality is stuck in some sort of cantankerous prepubescent limbo. [He is] going to be a stunted, miserable tool forever."
* TheQuietOne: He has only spoken once as an adult thus far in the comic.
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: In Act 6 Intermission 2 he appears behind the fourth wall with Hussiebot's head. Later he shoots Hussie with an assault rifle.
* RedHerring: The trolls referring to an indestructible demon destroying their session [[EpilepticTrees suggested to readers that Lord English was responsible for it]]. [[{{Jossed}} This was deliberate misdirection]]; WordOfGod actually calls him a "red herring villain in that session to deter speculation."
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Scratch's blue.
* ReligionOfEvil: Kurloz Makara makes it quite explicit that he, Gamzee, and the subjuggulators worship him.
* ShroudedInMyth: Very few characters have seen him and lived.
* SigilSpam: His billiard eyes recur from time to time, and he's recently become associated with spirals as well, which adds even more SigilSpam retroactively.
* SoulJar: Caliborn turns Lil' Cal into this, thus ensuring the rise of his future self.
* StableTimeLoop: For much of Act 5, the story had been hinting that he was the ultimate cause of all the problems with the human and troll sessions and that he was a master of time. As Act 6 progresses, of course, the story has become more complex as the humans and trolls have influenced his sister and his own childhood in turn.
* StrawMisogynist: Porrim speculates, based on his apparent preference for placing women under his power, that he enjoys being ''especially'' nasty to women. Considering [[HeManWomanHater what he was like in his youth]], it's not an unreasonable assumption on her end.
* TragicVillain: Surprisingly, Vriska suggests that he may be this. She argues that for all his bluster and dramatics, he's ultimately just a miserly, lonely, and depressed child who's egotism and obsession with being the best prevented him from ever gaining any true love or friendship. However, it's possible that she may be projecting a bit.
* TheUnReveal:
** No, [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005128 he's not actually]] [[AuthorAvatar Andrew Hussie]].
** And then [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005981 again]], when he actually does appear. All we see are his eyes.
** [[TheUntwist The Shitty Twist]]: [[invoked]] He's Caliborn, all grown up. There were a handful of moments to foreshadow this, though.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: '''Averted'''. As Caliborn, he was almost as bad as he is now, just smaller and constrained. It turns out that he's also ''still'' a kid -- he only looks like an adult because he fused with multiple other beings, and one of them was the muscular Arquiusprite.
* WalkingSpoiler: He spends a good portion of the comic simply being TheDreaded before his official arrival - at which point he wastes no time in killing a good portion of the cast.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude:
-->@@GT: So im named after a demon? What kind of demon is named english anyway?\\
TT: What kind of alien is named Crocker?@@
* WouldHitAGirl: "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006690 CANE!]]"

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005530 According to Doc Scratch]], 'Lord English' is just a title he goes by - in part because his true name is apparently [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast terrifying]].
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: He's a cherub. Later on he's called the [[GrimReaper Angel of]] [[DeaderThanDead Double Death]].
* PhraseCatcher: "He is already here," and variants thereof.
* PhysicalGod: He is the single most powerful character in the comic, undisputedly. He was originally a cherub, which are already at world-destroying levels of power to begin with, got empowered through SBURB as a Lord of Time, giving him control over the timestream, won a dead session of SBURB, granting him CompleteImmortality, a weapon that can defeat any opponent in a single blow (but can only be used twice: once by himself, and once by someone else), and the ability to instantly travel wherever and ''when''ever he wants to across all universes and timelines. ''On top of all that'', he was infused with even greater physical strength, sprite-powers (innate knowledge of SBURB and giant energy beams of death), and the Chucklevoodoos of the Subjuggulators when his soul was combined with others', AND he was further infused with the power of the Green Sun when he emerged out of Doc Scratch's body. He's been shown to be capable of rending apart the very fabric of reality and obliterating the souls of the dead. For the final battle, Vriska and Meenah decide they need to rally an infinite army of ghosts (many of whom are God-tiered) ''just to slow him down'' enough to have a chance to use their trump card. At no point is it suggested said infinite army actually has a chance of stopping him.
* PimpDuds: His CAIRO OVERCOAT. In fitting with the trope, he often enslaves and empowers women to do his dirty work, such as Snowman, the Condesce, and the Handmaid.
** Although Snowman seems to work for him willingly.
* PunnyName:
** A reference to a type of spin used on a cue ball.
** His [[BadassLongcoat CAIRO OVERCOAT]] is a pun on CHICAGO OVERCOAT, Mobster slang for a coffin. Its object double is a sarcophagus.
* PsychopathicManchild: Type B. Caliborn overcame Calliope way too soon in their development process by killing her dream self, preventing them from maturing properly. Instead, his "personality is stuck in some sort of cantankerous prepubescent limbo. [He is] going to be a stunted, miserable tool forever."
* TheQuietOne: He has only spoken once as an adult thus far in the comic.
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: In Act 6 Intermission 2 he appears behind the fourth wall with Hussiebot's head. Later he shoots Hussie with an assault rifle.
* RedHerring: The trolls referring to an indestructible demon destroying their session [[EpilepticTrees suggested to readers that Lord English was responsible for it]]. [[{{Jossed}} This was deliberate misdirection]]; WordOfGod actually calls him a "red herring villain in that session to deter speculation."
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Scratch's blue.
* ReligionOfEvil: Kurloz Makara makes it quite explicit that he, Gamzee, and the subjuggulators worship him.
* ShroudedInMyth: Very few characters have seen him and lived.
* SigilSpam: His billiard eyes recur from time to time, and he's recently become associated with spirals as well, which adds even more SigilSpam retroactively.
* SoulJar: Caliborn turns Lil' Cal into this, thus ensuring the rise of his future self.
* StableTimeLoop: For much of Act 5, the story had been hinting that he was the ultimate cause of all the problems with the human and troll sessions and that he was a master of time. As Act 6 progresses, of course, the story has become more complex as the humans and trolls have influenced his sister and his own childhood in turn.
* StrawMisogynist: Porrim speculates, based on his apparent preference for placing women under his power, that he enjoys being ''especially'' nasty to women. Considering [[HeManWomanHater what he was like in his youth]], it's not an unreasonable assumption on her end.
* TragicVillain: Surprisingly, Vriska suggests that he may be this. She argues that for all his bluster and dramatics, he's ultimately just a miserly, lonely, and depressed child who's egotism and obsession with being the best prevented him from ever gaining any true love or friendship. However, it's possible that she may be projecting a bit.
* TheUnReveal:
** No, [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005128 he's not actually]] [[AuthorAvatar Andrew Hussie]].
** And then [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005981 again]], when he actually does appear. All we see are his eyes.
** [[TheUntwist The Shitty Twist]]: [[invoked]] He's Caliborn, all grown up. There were a handful of moments to foreshadow this, though.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: '''Averted'''. As Caliborn, he was almost as bad as he is now, just smaller and constrained. It turns out that he's also ''still'' a kid -- he only looks like an adult because he fused with multiple other beings, and one of them was the muscular Arquiusprite.
* WalkingSpoiler: He spends a good portion of the comic simply being TheDreaded before his official arrival - at which point he wastes no time in killing a good portion of the cast.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude:
-->@@GT: So im named after a demon? What kind of demon is named english anyway?\\
TT: What kind of alien is named Crocker?@@
* WouldHitAGirl: "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006690 CANE!]]"
** See StrawMisogynist above.
