!Divine or Demonic Characters
[[folder:General]]
* AllThereInTheManual
* EldritchAbomination: Especially Grimalar
* FantasyPantheon
* Stock Gods

[[/folder]]
[[folder:Quizmalia, the Lady of Fate and Fortune]]
A (probably) ChaoticNeutral deity with a strange sense of fashion. [[spoiler: Appears in Julie's dreams as the Palm Tree Ghost.]] She created the Magicant, a wish granting potential ArtifactOfDoom, and threw it into the world of mortals ForTheLulz. Since then however, she's decided to have someone more responsible go seek it.

* WildCard: See also: Chaotic deity named the Lady of Fate and Fortune.
* BigGood: In charge of the dungeons that hold the pieces of the Magicant, and is the source of outsider help for Coumadin. Also has a vested interest in seeing the Magicant in the hands of Good, [[spoiler: if her free counsel to Julie is any clue.]]
* [[spoiler:TalkingInYourDreams: as the Palm Tree Ghost.]]
* AlienSky: Her home plane of Zebro has a bright orange sky.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Nehhilio/Nehhilia]]
The [[WeirdSun Sun]]/[[WeirdMoon Moon]] that shines above Manjulias. Transforms into the other at Dusk/Dawn, respectively, with a giant explosion.

* {{Narrator}}: Serves this role in establishing shots, which creeps Angelica out to no end.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Nehhilio ''explodes'' in order to ''turn into the moon.'' This explosion is so large, incidentally, that a reasonably high-INT character can mistake the orange sky of Zebro for it.
* ArtShift: is played by two photos of humans, a man and a woman, respectively.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Joyelle the Erinyes]]
[[quoteright:207:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Joyelle_9697.jpg]]
'''Joyelle the Erinyes'''

->''"I would smile, but I lack the facial muscles required to do so."''

Joyelle is an enigmatic Devil, known as a "Force of Joyless Toil". She was introduced as a monster for Julie and her friends to fight before arriving in the city of Autumnson. She originally had the mission of destroying Jordie, a Cleric destined to meet up with Julie.

* BlackMagic: Joyelle can use the magic spell "Unholy Blight" whenever she wants. The spell is specifically designed to kill and sicken creatures with good hearts.
* TheComicallySerious: Joyelle's so utterly serious that the font she uses in her speech bubbles is different than normal.
* DarkActionGirl
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette:
* EvilIsSexy: In-universe example. Rocky commented that "it was actually kinda hot, in an evil librarian sort of way."
* {{Flight}}
* {{Foil}}: The serious, unfunny half of the dynamic Joyelle and Zeggriz share.
* GenreBlind: Led to her downfall.
* TheHeartless: Joyelle has been described by Julie as "an evil incarnation of joyless toil."
* HonorBeforeReason: Joyelle gives Julie's group a chance to rest before fighting them, and when they do fight Joyelle fights fairly (for the most part).
* ItIsDehumanizing: Most of Julie's group don't refer to the Erinyes as a female, but as a genderless monster.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Along with Zeggriz.]]
* LawfulEvil[[invoked]]: In keeping with the [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons source material]] this comic pays homage to in regards to Devils.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Though she's a Devil.
* OutsideContextVillain: Aside from her being here to hunt down and destroy Jordie (and Julie as a plan B target), there is next to no information on why this devil is in the story.
* PerpetualFrowner: Joyelle physically ''can't'' smile because the Erinyes lacks the facial muscles.
* SpeechBubbles: Joyelle's are dark red with yellow text, symbolizing she's an evil outsider.
* SpockSpeak: Never uses contractions when speaking, and even uses a less comic-y font in her speech balloons.
* VillainTeleportation: Can use this at will, but oddly enough did [[HonorBeforeReason not use this to her advantage]] when battling Julie and her friends.
* WingedHumanoid: Joyelle resembles some kind of fallen angel.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Zeggriz the Imp]]
[[quoteright:202:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Zeggriz_4455.jpg]]
'''Zeggriz the Imp'''

->''"For Sarbek's Sake, this is so BORING! Go Back to talking about your feats, lack of enchanted weapons, and weaknesses."''

Zeggriz is the snarky underling of Joyelle, spying and performing other errands.

* BeleagueredAssistant: Doesn't seem to enjoy working for Joyelle at all.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mouths off to Joyelle whenever possible.
* DirtyCoward: Would rather go invisible and sit in the sidelines than help Joyelle fight.
* {{Flight}}
* {{Foil}}: Supplies the less serious half to the dynamic Zeggriz and Joyelle share.
* TheImp: Appropriately enough.
* {{Invisibility}}: One of Zeggriz's powers, and uses it for spying.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Along with Joyelle.]]
* LawfulEvil[[invoked]]: Not nearly as uptight as Joyelle, though.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Though a devil like Joyelle.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: Definitely to Lenny, and probably to Joyelle as well.
* SpeechBubbles: Zeggriz's are dark red with yellow text, though in the normal font unlike [[SpockSpeak Joyelle's.]]

[[folder:Thomas Stratus]]
[[quoteright:195:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/OldTimer-ola_6664.jpg]]
'''Thomas Stratus'''

->''" My apologies. I tend to zone out sometimes when dealing with really stupid people."''

Up until the second book, this wizard didn't have an official name in the comic, but he has crossed paths with Julie's gang more than once. He runs a scroll shop in Everwood, which was where the group met him. They met him again in Huckleton when they were buying ferry tickets to cross the ocean. Originally he seemed to be an unimportant character, but the second book's has him established as a fair bit higher up on importance.

* AllPowerfulBystander: The old timer is very powerful, but doesn't have much to do with Julie's group.
* AscendedExtra: While he was nothing more than a recurring character in the first book, he's arguably the main character of the [[TwoLinesNoWaiting B plot]] in the second book.
* BadassGrandpa: He reveals that he's higher-levelled than Rocky and Angelika combined, and that he's a great-grandfather.
* BrickJoke: After 300 pages, he finally [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0362.html wears]] his [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0053.html casual outfit]].
* CoolOldGuy
* DeadpanSnarker: Many of his lines are pretty decent.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: He learned about the Souballo's invasion plan, so the Emperor refines a plan to ruin Stratus' name in the city of invasion by commiting horrible crimes, disguised as Stratus.
* InsufferableGenius
* OldMaster: He is a high-level wizard, and has been revealed to be one of [[BigBad Brian Souballo's]] teachers.
* RecurringCharacter: He is one of the few non-player characters that Julie's group has dealt with more than once, and probably later on as well.
* RetiredBadass: He used to be a (presumably) magic teacher for TheEmperor before making/selling magic scrolls in Everwood.
* SquishyWizard
* TakenForGranite: Does this to Zaedalkaah as punishment for Zaedalkaah's failed assassination attempt.
* TrueNeutral[[invoked]]: His personality seems to be this. It's also hinted at when Brian extends the empire membership offer to him as someone "who would be cool...ish with the idea, alignment-wise." Even when Stratus delivers his YoureInsane speech to the emperor, Stratus seems to just phone it in somewhat.
* UnequalRites: He holds the traditional wizard's opinion that Sorcerers are inferior to Wizards.
* YoureInsane: Stratus does a half-hearted, snarky one of these to the Emperor before the Emperor attacks him.

[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Patterson_3961.jpg]]
'''Eric Patterson'''

->''"Could you please, please, PLEASE un-quit and come back?"''

Patterson is Julie's former boss when she was working at The Wayside. He's a fairly understanding person, but he does seem not to have that many scruples and is less lawful than one would expect or hope. He eventually gets kidnapped by Brian due to his good barkeeping abilities... and because Angelo wanted a "Huckleton Heartthrob".

* BeleagueredAssistant: For Angelo, though downplayed as Patterson does say he has a lot of free time.
* BenevolentBoss: He doesn't hold it against Julie when she leaves, but he teeters between BenevolentBoss and StupidBoss.
* DeadpanSnarker: And strangely enough Angelo has minimal distain for it.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: In the beginning, not so much now due to CharacterDevelopment.
* GildedCage: When he's kidnapped by Brian to make drinks for him and Angelo, though now his job list has expanded a bit.
* HonestJohnsDealership: He treats The Wayside bar like this, and gets in trouble with health inspectors when Julie blabs about his various practices.
* OddFriendship: Developing a fairly nice one with Umbria.
* StupidBoss: Has shades of this, between his work practices and treatment of employees he doesn't like.
* TookALevelInBadass: Since being kidnapped by Angelo, Patterson took advantage of the free training and tutors and gained levels in Rogue. [[RPGMechanicsVerse Literally.]] He gained four of them according to his [[AllThereInTheManual character page.]]
* TrueNeutral[[invoked]]: The only way he could easily tolerate people ranging from the [[NeutralGood sweet and kind Julie]], to the [[NeutralEvil selfishly evil Umbria.]]

'''Peganone Silkweed'''

->''"We're not judgin'... at least in the 'non chosen one' sense."''

Peganone is an elven woman, and a member of the Everwood Council. She is also one of the three judges in [[Series/AmericanIdol Everwood Idol]]. She is a wizard who seems to be specialized in Divination magic. She is the most cheerful of the three.

Simonicus is probably the leader of the Everwood Council, or it may be a triumverate thing.

Simonicus Joyelle is probably an enigmatic Devil, known as a "Force of Joyless Toil". She was introduced as a monster for Julie and her friends to fight before arriving in the leader city of Autumnson. She originally had the mission of destroying Jordie, a Cleric destined to meet up with Julie.

* BlackMagic: Joyelle can use the magic spell "Unholy Blight" whenever she wants. The spell is specifically designed to kill and sicken creatures with good hearts.

* GenreBlind: Led to her downfall.

In Llanadario, Merla was the one who psionically called out to Julie so they could talk. Merla turned out to be a member of the Everwood Council's network, helping Julie on her quest.

She has takes on on the quest of hunting Zaedalkaah down and bringing her to justice. This sentence is of course, death. Eva Wilson's quite the straight arrow, and isn't interested in the reward offered for Zaedalkaah's capture other than to donate it to charity.

'''Terramycin Shadowleaf'''

->''"Living out of your backpack, kicking the Empire's ass... I'm so jealous."''

Terramycin is an Elf girl that Julie's group met in a small town they passed through. She doesn't appear to like humans very much, and has strong and hateful feelings toward the Souballo Empire. She also has a son named Daytranna who runs a curiousity shop in the same town. There is more to her and her son than meets the eye.

* ActionGirl: She turns out to be a mid-level rogue and shows off her skills in a battle in the town.
* ActionMom: Fights alongside her son against the Angelo's Kids who attack the town. She and her son [[CurbstompBattle stomp them flat.]]
* BadassNormal: She activated a scroll of greater invisibility but has no magic of her own, being a rogue.
* FantasticRacism: Terramycin doesn't like humans very much, especially those from the Souballo Empire.
* LoveableRogue: She's a fairly charming girl once you get to know her.
* HeroicNeutral: Expressed an interest in Julie's adventuring but turns out to be more interested in protecting her hometown.

Daytranna is an absentminded Elven man who runs a curiousity shop in a small town Julie and her friends visited. Angelika first visited the store in hopes of getting a new tent, and first had the pleasure of meeting the [[RapunzelHair super long haired]] man. His Mother is Terramycin, and she helps run the inn in the town. Like his mom, there is more to him than meets the eye.

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Not a professor, but a very disorganized wizard who owns a curiousity shop. He ''knew'' there was a tent in his store for Angelika, but it took him 19 minutes to find it.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The side he showed Angelika was quaint and lovably unfocused. The side he showed the Angelo's Kids was [[LetsGetDangerous a lot less so.]]
* FantasticRacism: Has a fair bit less bile than his mom, but it's still there.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Many wouldn't know he was a capable magician just by looking at him or talking to him.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Odd elven example in that even though Daytranna is Terramycin's son, he looks older than her.
* OurElvesAreBetter: Daytranna's features are late fall/early winter as Terramycin explained.
* RapunzelHair: And various objects get trapped in it, such as ''caltrops''. These caltrops even [[ChekhovsGun came in handy]] when fleeing an Angelo's Kids commander.
* SquishyWizard: And the first one not to use [[BlackMage fireballs and lightning bolts]] as their main way to fight. Due to being a Transmuter, he specializes in magic that can make him less squishy and more combat-oriented if need be.
* SummonMagic: Summons creatures to fight for him with his magic, due to not being able to use evocation magic.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Apparently a sign that he was a late fall/early winter Elf, and he's a wizard which fufills the whole supernatural prerequisite thing.

'''Terramycin Shadowleaf'''

->''"Living out of your backpack, kicking the Empire's ass... I'm so jealous."''

Terramycin is an Elf girl that Julie's group met in a small town they passed through. She doesn't appear to like humans very much, and has strong and hateful feelings toward the Souballo Empire. She also has a son named Daytranna who runs a curiousity shop in the same town. There is more to her and her son than meets the eye.

* ActionGirl: She turns out to be a mid-level rogue and shows off her skills in a battle in the town.
* ActionMom: Fights alongside her son against the Angelo's Kids who attack the town. She and her son [[CurbstompBattle stomp them flat.]]
* BadassNormal: She activated a scroll of greater invisibility but has no magic of her own, being a rogue.
* FantasticRacism: Terramycin doesn't like humans very much, especially those from the Souballo Empire.
* LoveableRogue: She's a fairly charming girl once you get to know her.
* HeroicNeutral: Expressed an interest in Julie's adventuring but turns out to be more interested in protecting her hometown.
* ItsPersonal: Terramycin and Daytranna slay an entire group of Angelo Kids because they murdered a gnome friend of theirs.
* OurElvesAreBetter: She also explains how Elves get their [[TechnicolorEyes technicolor]] [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair features.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Not quite seven hundred, but she says she's 245 years old, and oddly enough looks younger than her son.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Played with. She's not evil, but she's a force to be reckoned with.

'''Daytranna Shadowleaf'''

->''"It's better to be lucky than good."''

Daytranna is an absentminded Elven man who runs a curiousity shop in a small town Julie and her friends visited. Angelika first visited the store in hopes of getting a new tent, and first had the pleasure of meeting the [[RapunzelHair super long haired]] man. His Mother is Terramycin, and she helps run the inn in the town. Like his mom, there is more to him than meets the eye.

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Not a professor, but a very disorganized wizard who owns a curiousity shop. He ''knew'' there was a tent in his store for Angelika, but it took him 19 minutes to find it.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The side he showed Angelika was quaint and lovably unfocused. The side he showed the Angelo's Kids was [[LetsGetDangerous a lot less so.]]
* FantasticRacism: Has a fair bit less bile than his mom, but it's still there.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Many wouldn't know he was a capable magician just by looking at him or talking to him.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Odd elven example in that even though Daytranna is Terramycin's son, he looks older than her.
* OurElvesAreBetter: Daytranna's features are late fall/early winter as Terramycin explained.
* RapunzelHair: And various objects get trapped in it, such as ''caltrops''. These caltrops even [[ChekhovsGun came in handy]] when fleeing an Angelo's Kids commander.
* SquishyWizard: And the first one not to use [[BlackMage fireballs and lightning bolts]] as their main way to fight. Due to being a Transmuter, he specializes in magic that can make him less squishy and more combat-oriented if need be.
* SummonMagic: Summons creatures to fight for him with his magic, due to not being able to use evocation magic.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Apparently a sign that he was a late fall/early winter Elf, and he's a wizard which fufills the whole supernatural prerequisite thing.

Coumadin is the caretaker for the temple of the First Magicant piece. He is a Cleric who can channel negitive energy and has three Wraith coworkers who he hangs around with. He introduced himself into the story by challenging Julie's group and with his Wraith friends managed to defeat Julie's group, forcing them to flee and regroup.

* BargainWithHeaven or DealWithTheDevil: He created two contracts with the denizens of Zebro for assistance in the ''real'' battle with Julie's group.
* BlackMagic: Most of his magic revolves around negitive energy.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Even The Palm Tree Ghost thinks he's a nut, but he's very good at strategy and guarding the temple.
* ChaoticNeutral[[invoked]]: Serves The Lady of Fate and Fortune, who is a chaotic demigoddess.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Coumadin's creepy and kind of a nut-job, but he's not malicious and [[spoiler:kept the Wraiths from killing Angelika.]]

* OurElvesAreBetter: And his name is [[ThemeNaming Coumadin]].
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Coumadin has divine magical powers which come from [[TricksterGod The Lady of Fate and Fortune.]] Like the goddess he serves, he is also a wild card and a bit of a trickster.

[[caption-width-right:123:[-You can trust her.-] ]]
'''Umbria/Zaedalkaah'''

->''"I'm as innocent as a child with a fresh, delicious heart."''

Umbria/Zaedalkaah is a secondary antagonist in the comic. She has had quite a bit of screen time, and has had many adventures on her quest to get her old body (and character classes?) back. Her quest is basically the [[TwoLinesNoWaiting B Plot]] of the entire comic.

* BackFromTheDead: Zaedalkaah's rebirth took the form of whatever revived him. Since it was Julie's form, he may also qualify as a GenderBender.
* BadassTeacher: When conventionally teaching her non-bard orchestra wasn't working so well, she opted to take them to Mr. Moriatos' practice dungeon for real combat/dungeon experience. She has helped twelve of her students gain their first bard level so far.
* BetaTestBaddie: Umbria was initially on a quest to regain her power and her true form, which this [[GenderBender female]] [[QuirkyBard bardic form]] isn't. Her former employers however, refuse to take her back due to her weakened state. She ultimately ends up stuck in the Souballo Empire, albeit with a high ranking position, and seems to have dropped this for now, though she is still trying to increase her influence.
* CardCarryingVillain: She's evil and knows it.
* CombatPragmatist: This combined with luck is how she's survived so long on her own.
* ConsummateLiar: Subverted somewhat. She ''thinks'' she's a great liar, but her lying isn't that great, and Jason and Trevoricus caught on and eventually kicked her out of the group.
* CoolTeacher: Many of her students seem to think this... when she's not being [[SadistTeacher really mean]] to them.
* DarkActionGirl: Quite excellent in combat, and evil.
* DeadpanSnarker: Definitely has her moments, and finding out Angelo's Kids is part of TheEmpire was probably the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny best one.]]
* DePower: Zaedalkaah's reincarnation required her to take Julie's class and levels, making her a Level 3 bard in the beginning. We see that her previous incarnation was stronger than this, to the point of being a famous assassin in the Brotherhood. The guild no longer wants her now that she's weak, so her main goal is to reclaim her lost power.
* EvilTwin: To Julie.
* EyeScream: She seems to like stabbing people in the eye with her Rapier.
* FanservicePack: Inverted just like with Angelika and Julie. Umbria gets a costume change starting from [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0350.html comic #350 onward]] which no longer shows off her legs.
* GenderBender: Umbria was originally a male, fiend touched being named Zaedalkaah, but was forced to reincarnate as an EvilTwin of the person who released him from his prison, Julie. She initially tries to recover her old body and class by requesting the help of the organization she once belonged to, [[FirstLawOfGenderBending but ends up thwarted and sidetracked]]. She takes her present form in stride, and [[SecondLawOfGenderBending finds Julie's good looks useful]] for manipulating people. For the time being at least, she has more or less settled for remaining this way.
* GildedCage: She was taken to Souballo HQ and, though in luxury, was forced to produce an anthem for the Souballo Empire.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: Umbria's character design is an "evil palette swap" of Julie's design. She lampshades this when talking to two evangelists of Angelo's Kids.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Umbria is extremely conceited and self-centered, using people around her at any opportunity to get ahead.
* {{Jerkass}}: During her travels with Trevoricus and Jason, she treats them like crap. When she gets voluntered to create the Souballo Empire's anthem, she treats her assigned orchestra like crap.
* MagicMusic: A much [[IncrediblyLamePun darker reprise]] to Julie's powers.
* ManipulativeBitch: She has used Jason's (and Trevoricus' to a lesser extent) attraction to her as well as their greed to get them to do whatever she wants. They wised up and tossed her out of the group.
* MusicalAssassin: Though in her past life, he was [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0175.html more traditional.]]
* NeutralEvil[[invoked]]: Doesn't have any bias for or against law, but is clearly evil.
* NonLethalKO: Thanks to a bungled move silently check, the [[RecurringCharacter Scroll Shop Wizard]] heard Zaedalkaah coming and promptly foiled the assassination by [[TakenForGranite petrifying him.]]
* PsychoticSmirk: Likes doing these a lot.
* PuttingOnTheReich: Starting with [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0350.html comic #350]] she seems to have embraced the dress code of TheEmpire.
* QuirkyBard: Albeit evil...
* RoyalRapier: Her weapon of choice.
* [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Evil in a Wand]]: Until Julie [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally released it]].
* SmugSnake: Anyone not more powerful than her she tends to treat like crap... and she's even snuck a few snide remarks at the more powerful people around her. She's shown to be very conceited and overconfident, even though most of her successes were due to dumb luck.
* TerribleTrio: With Trevoricus and Jason, until they [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0180.html kicked her out.]] But then Angelo forces them, along with Jane, to work together again for his own amusement.

the Souballo Empire, albeit with a high ranking position, and seems is married to have dropped this Angelo.

Up until the second book, this wizard didn't have an official name in the comic, but he has crossed paths with Julie's gang more than once. He runs a scroll shop in Everwood, which was where the group met him. They met him again in Huckleton when they were buying ferry tickets to cross the ocean.

'''Julie Magilligan'''

->''"The power of friendship cures light wounds!"''

Julie is the protagonist of the story. The story begins with Julie working as a waitress for a bar in Huckleton called "The Wayside". Then one night, she gets a prophetic dream from a powerful shrouded figure she affectionately calls "The Palm Tree Ghost". The figure explains to her that she will save the world by getting the pendant and collecting the broken magicant pieces. How she will save the world with them will probably have to do with battling the Souballo Empire and using the Magicant's power to fix other problems.

* BrainyBrunette: Though sunnier than normal brainy brunettes. Revealed to be subverted when the Palm Tree Ghost suggests to Julie to [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0134.html go back to being a blonde]].

Umbria/Zaedalkaah
is a secondary antagonist in the protagonist comic. She has had quite a bit of screen time, and has had many adventures on her quest to get her old body (and character classes?) back. Her quest is basically the [[TwoLinesNoWaiting B Plot]] of the story. The story begins with Julie entire comic.

* BackFromTheDead: Zaedalkaah's rebirth took the form of whatever revived him. Since it was Julie's form, he may also qualify as a GenderBender.
* BadassTeacher: When conventionally teaching her non-bard orchestra wasn't
working as a waitress so well, she opted to take them to Mr. Moriatos' practice dungeon for real combat/dungeon experience. She has helped twelve of her students gain their first bard level so far.
* BetaTestBaddie: Umbria was initially on
a bar in Huckleton called "The Wayside". Then one night, she gets a prophetic dream from a powerful shrouded figure she affectionately calls "The Palm Tree Ghost". The figure explains quest to regain her power and her true form, which this [[GenderBender female]] [[QuirkyBard bardic form]] isn't. Her former employers however, refuse to take her back due to her that she will save the world by getting the pendant and collecting the broken magicant pieces. How she will save the world with them will probably have to do with battling weakened state. She ultimately ends up stuck in the Souballo Empire Empire, albeit with a high ranking position, and using the Magicant's power to fix other problems.

'''Angelika Magilligan'''

->''"I just USE the spells. I don't know anything about them!"''

Angelika is Julie's fifteen-year-old sister. She bumps into Julie right after Julie quits her job at the bar and decides to join up with the quest. Angelika doesn't seem to care too much about Julie's mission and is only in it for the gold and to help keep her big sister safe. Angelika is very different from her sister, in both personality and the skills she uses.

* BareYourMidriff: She wore a magic chain shirt that didn't for awhile. When she gets her [[PaintItBlack new costume]] from her cloak of Charisma, she loses the midriff.
* BlackMage: To compliment Julie's friendlier type of magic.
* BlackMagicianGirl: Has the personality and powerful offensive magic.
* BladeOnAStick: Angelika's weapon of choice is a spear, though she had a [[EpicFlail Morningstar]] for awhile.
* BookDumb: It's revealed Angelika doesn't know much of anything of the spells she uses.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: The comic isn't a DomCom but all the bratty self-centered traits are there. She also has nothing but contempt for her father.
* CharacterDevelopment: She's getting a bit less self-centered and rude as the story progresses. She's also warming up to Emily, though this may be due to [[FireForgedFriends coming through for her in combat]] and bonding over mutual disdain for Rocky.
* ChaoticNeutral: [[spoiler: ultimately confirmed when we see her in the afterlife]] [[invoked]]
* TheChick: Subverted.
* CuteWitch
* DeadpanSnarker: Duels with Rocky for this title.
* DoNotCallMePaul: If you call her Angie, she'll cut your hair off and force-feed it to you.
* EpicFlail: Angelika briefly used a magic morningstar she won in a combat, then switched back to a magic spear. In the Magicant Temple she loses that spear, and is now using another morningstar she found in a chest.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: Averted as Angelika isn't evil and doesn't become evil with the costume switch, but Norveg lampshades this trope.
* FanservicePack: Zigzagged. Angelika's first outfit showed a lot of skin, but her second one was more conservative and dark, the third one has her in a skimpy rat costume that looks a lot like [[SoulEater Mizune's teen form.]]
* GirlishPigtails: And she holds them in place with ''tiny skulls.'' She loses them when she gets her costume change.
* HatesBeingTouched: Jordie [[TheGlomp hugs her]] and she states this to him.
* IceQueen: Uses snarkiness and humor to keep others at a distance.
* InformedAttractiveness: Angelika is supposed to be very, very attractive but this drawing style [[GenericCuteness doesn't really show it.]]
* IrrationalHatred: For Emily when Angelika first met her, and much later when Emily joins the team. It may be due to Emily being a [[UnequalRites wizard]], or it may be due to Rocky [[GreenEyedMonster really liking Emily.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: One of the reasons she annoys those around her.
* {{Jerkass}}: She's a bit of a pain in the butt, especially in Book 1.
* MissingMom: Angelika never knew her mother as she died when Angelika was a baby.
* NotThatKindOfMage: She's a sorcerer, not a wizard.
* PaintItBlack: Subverted and spoofed. When she put on a Cloak of Charisma she gets a DarkerAndEdgier costume like this.
* PeekABangs: Her new darker look has this.
* ShortTank: Very much so.
* SiblingYinYang: The wild, irresponsible half.
* SkewedPriorities: She doesn't show much anger toward Coumadin and his wraiths for nearly killing her, until she finds out he looted her gear.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A.
* UnkemptBeauty: Angelika isn't too shaken up about not bathing if it can't be helped.
* YoungestChildWins: Played with. Angelika has powers of her own, but Julie is the big heroine of the story.

[[quoteright:123:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Umbria-ola_2672.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:123:[-You can trust her.-] ]]
'''Umbria/Zaedalkaah'''

->''"I'm as innocent as a child with a fresh, delicious heart."''

Umbria/Zaedalkaah is a secondary antagonist in the comic. She has had quite a bit of screen time, and has had many adventures on her quest to get her old body (and character classes?) back. Her quest is basically the [[TwoLinesNoWaiting B Plot]] of the entire comic.

* BackFromTheDead: Zaedalkaah's rebirth took the form of whatever revived him. Since it was Julie's form, he may also qualify as a GenderBender.
* BadassTeacher: When conventionally teaching her non-bard orchestra wasn't working so well, she opted to take them to Mr. Moriatos' practice dungeon for real combat/dungeon experience. She has helped twelve of her students gain their first bard level so far.
* BetaTestBaddie: Umbria was initially on a quest to regain her power and her true form, which this [[GenderBender female]] [[QuirkyBard bardic form]] isn't. Her former employers however, refuse to take her back due to her weakened state. She ultimately ends up stuck in the Souballo Empire, albeit with a high ranking position, and seems to have dropped this for now, though she is still trying to increase her influence.
* CardCarryingVillain: She's evil and knows it.
* CombatPragmatist: This combined with luck is how she's survived so long on her own.
* ConsummateLiar: Subverted somewhat. She ''thinks'' she's a great liar, but her lying isn't that great, and Jason and Trevoricus caught on and eventually kicked her out of the group.
* CoolTeacher: Many of her students seem to think this... when she's not being [[SadistTeacher really mean]] to them.
* DarkActionGirl: Quite excellent in combat, and evil.
* DeadpanSnarker: Definitely has her moments, and finding out Angelo's Kids is part of TheEmpire was probably the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny best one.]]
* DePower: Zaedalkaah's reincarnation required her to take Julie's class and levels, making her a Level 3 bard in the beginning. We see that her previous incarnation was stronger than this, to the point of being a famous assassin in the Brotherhood. The guild no longer wants her now that she's weak, so her main goal is to reclaim her lost power.
* EvilTwin: To Julie.
* EyeScream: She seems to like stabbing people in the eye with her Rapier.
* FanservicePack: Inverted just like with Angelika and Julie. Umbria gets a costume change starting from [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0350.html comic #350 onward]] which no longer shows off her legs.
* GenderBender: Umbria was originally a male, fiend touched being named Zaedalkaah, but was forced to reincarnate as an EvilTwin of the person who released him from his prison, Julie. She initially tries to recover her old body and class by requesting the help of the organization she once belonged to, [[FirstLawOfGenderBending but ends up thwarted and sidetracked]]. She takes her present form in stride, and [[SecondLawOfGenderBending finds Julie's good looks useful]] for manipulating people. For the time being at least, she has more or less settled for remaining this way.
* GildedCage: She was taken to Souballo HQ and, though in luxury, was forced to produce an anthem for the Souballo Empire.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: Umbria's character design is an "evil palette swap" of Julie's design. She lampshades this when talking to two evangelists of Angelo's Kids.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Umbria is extremely conceited and self-centered, using people around her at any opportunity to get ahead.
* {{Jerkass}}: During her travels with Trevoricus and Jason, she treats them like crap. When she gets voluntered to create the Souballo Empire's anthem, she treats her assigned orchestra like crap.
* MagicMusic: A much [[IncrediblyLamePun darker reprise]] to Julie's powers.
* ManipulativeBitch: She has used Jason's (and Trevoricus' to a lesser extent) attraction to her as well as their greed to get them to do whatever she wants. They wised up and tossed her out of the group.
* MusicalAssassin: Though in her past life, he was [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0175.html more traditional.]]
* NeutralEvil[[invoked]]: Doesn't have any bias for or against law, but is clearly evil.
* NonLethalKO: Thanks to a bungled move silently check, the [[RecurringCharacter Scroll Shop Wizard]] heard Zaedalkaah coming and promptly foiled the assassination by [[TakenForGranite petrifying him.]]
* PsychoticSmirk: Likes doing these a lot.
* PuttingOnTheReich: Starting with [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0350.html comic #350]] she seems to have embraced the dress code of TheEmpire.
* QuirkyBard: Albeit evil...
* RoyalRapier: Her weapon of choice.
* [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Evil in a Wand]]: Until Julie [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally released it]].
* SmugSnake: Anyone not more powerful than her she tends to treat like crap... and she's even snuck a few snide remarks at the more powerful people around her. She's shown to be very conceited and overconfident, even though most of her successes were due to dumb luck.
* TerribleTrio: With Trevoricus and Jason, until they [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0180.html kicked her out.]] But then Angelo forces them, along with Jane, to work together again for his own amusement.
* TheUnfettered: Umbria seems to be willing to do whatever it takes to reclaim her old power. She manipulates and lies to people, kills them, and has joined Angelo's Kids not because she believes in their dogma but because she believes it's a decent way to achieve her goals.

Trevoricus is another part of Jane's team, before it was hijacked by Umbria.

* MistakenForPedophile: He eventually explains that the "molestation accident" was him mistaking a human child for a halfling adult; he had good reason for that, since he was traveling with a caravan of halflings.
* OurGnomesAreWeirder: He is a gnome, and they are short, yellow-skinned humanoids with pointy tails.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: In the tale of his past, we can see him rapping [[Film/TeenWitch "Top That"]] with two other guys. It's as awful as it sounds.

* ActionMom: Fights alongside her son against the Angelo's Kids who attack the town. She and her son [[CurbstompBattle stomp them flat.]]
* BadassNormal: She activated a scroll of greater invisibility but has no magic of her own, being a rogue.
* FantasticRacism: Terramycin doesn't like humans very much, especially those from the Souballo Empire.
* LoveableRogue: She's a fairly charming girl once you get to know her.
* HeroicNeutral: Expressed an interest in Julie's adventuring but turns out to be more interested in protecting her hometown.
* ItsPersonal: Terramycin and Daytranna slay an entire group of Angelo Kids because they murdered a gnome friend of theirs.
* OurElvesAreBetter: She also explains how Elves get their [[TechnicolorEyes technicolor]] [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair features.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Not quite seven hundred, but she says she's 245 years old, and oddly enough looks younger than her son.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Played with. She's not evil, but she's a force to be reckoned with.
* ReluctantWarrior: After her and Daytranna's part of the battle was over, she openly states that [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0305.html she hates fighting.]]

[[folder:Daytranna Shadowleaf]]
[[quoteright:318:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Daytranna_4209.jpg]]
'''Daytranna Shadowleaf'''

->''"It's better to be lucky than good."''

Daytranna is an absentminded Elven man who runs a curiousity shop in a small town Julie and her friends visited. Angelika first visited the store in hopes of getting a new tent, and first had the pleasure of meeting the [[RapunzelHair super long haired]] man. His Mother is Terramycin, and she helps run the inn in the town. Like his mom, there is more to him than meets the eye.

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Not a professor, but a very disorganized wizard who owns a curiousity shop. He ''knew'' there was a tent in his store for Angelika, but it took him 19 minutes to find it.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The side he showed Angelika was quaint and lovably unfocused. The side he showed the Angelo's Kids was [[LetsGetDangerous a lot less so.]]
* FantasticRacism: Has a fair bit less bile than his mom, but it's still there.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Many wouldn't know he was a capable magician just by looking at him or talking to him.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Odd elven example in that even though Daytranna is Terramycin's son, he looks older than her.
* OurElvesAreBetter: Daytranna's features are late fall/early winter as Terramycin explained.
* RapunzelHair: And various objects get trapped in it, such as ''caltrops''. These caltrops even [[ChekhovsGun came in handy]] when fleeing an Angelo's Kids commander.
* SquishyWizard: And the first one not to use [[BlackMage fireballs and lightning bolts]] as their main way to fight. Due to being a Transmuter, he specializes in magic that can make him less squishy and more combat-oriented if need be.
* SummonMagic: Summons creatures to fight for him with his magic, due to not being able to use evocation magic.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Apparently a sign that he was a late fall/early winter Elf, and he's a wizard which fufills the whole supernatural prerequisite thing.

[[folder:Coumadin the Temple Warden]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Coumadin_4527.jpg]]
'''Coumadin the Temple Warden'''

->''"Originality's overrated anyway. As long as it's fun, it can be as memorable and good as any established idea."''

Coumadin is the caretaker for the temple of the First Magicant piece. He is a Cleric who can channel negitive energy and has three Wraith coworkers who he hangs around with. He introduced himself into the story by challenging Julie's group and with his Wraith friends managed to defeat Julie's group, forcing them to flee and regroup.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: He and his group successfully routed Julie's.
* BargainWithHeaven or DealWithTheDevil: He created two contracts with the denizens of Zebro for assistance in the ''real'' battle with Julie's group.
* BlackMagic: Most of his magic revolves around negitive energy.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Even The Palm Tree Ghost thinks he's a nut, but he's very good at strategy and guarding the temple.
* ChaoticNeutral[[invoked]]: Serves The Lady of Fate and Fortune, who is a chaotic demigoddess.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Coumadin's creepy and kind of a nut-job, but he's not malicious and [[spoiler:kept the Wraiths from killing Angelika.]]
* FieryRedhead: Subverted. He's quite laid back.
* FriendlessBackground: His only friends are Undead monsters and sometime Zebroan Outsiders he pays to be his wingmen.
* TheNecromancer: Unlike normal Clerics, he has the ability to command undead and has spells that can create and assist them.
* NoSocialSkills: His only friends are undead monsters, and he greeted Julie and her friends by attacking them.
* OurElvesAreBetter: And his name is [[ThemeNaming Coumadin]].
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Coumadin has divine magical powers which come from [[TricksterGod The Lady of Fate and Fortune.]] Like the goddess he serves, he is also a wild card and a bit of a trickster.

[[/folder]]
[[folder:Quizmalia, the Lady of Fate and Fortune]]
A (probably) ChaoticNeutral deity with a strange sense of fashion. [[spoiler: Appears in Julie's dreams as the Palm Tree Ghost.]] She created the Magicant, a wish granting potential ArtifactOfDoom, and threw it into the world of mortals ForTheLulz. Since then however, she's decided to have someone more responsible go seek it.

* WildCard: See also: Chaotic deity named the Lady of Fate and Fortune.
* BigGood: In charge of the dungeons that hold the pieces of the Magicant, and is the source of outsider help for Coumadin. Also has a vested interest in seeing the Magicant in the hands of Good, [[spoiler: if her free counsel to Julie is any clue.]]
* [[spoiler:TalkingInYourDreams: as the Palm Tree Ghost.]]
* AlienSky: Her home plane of Zebro has a bright orange sky.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Nehhilio/Nehhilia]]
The [[WeirdSun Sun]]/[[WeirdMoon Moon]] that shines above Manjulias. Transforms into the other at Dusk/Dawn, respectively, with a giant explosion.

* {{Narrator}}: Serves this role in establishing shots, which creeps Angelica out to no end.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Nehhilio ''explodes'' in order to ''turn into the moon.'' This explosion is so large, incidentally, that a reasonably high-INT character can mistake the orange sky of Zebro for it.
* ArtShift: is played by two photos of humans, a man and a woman, respectively.

[[folder:Joyelle the Erinyes]]
[[quoteright:207:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Joyelle_9697.jpg]]
'''Joyelle the Erinyes'''

->''"I would smile, but I lack the facial muscles required to do so."''

Joyelle is an enigmatic Devil, known as a "Force of Joyless Toil". She was introduced as a monster for Julie and her friends to fight before arriving in the city of Autumnson. She originally had the mission of destroying Jordie, a Cleric destined to meet up with Julie.

* BlackMagic: Joyelle can use the magic spell "Unholy Blight" whenever she wants. The spell is specifically designed to kill and sicken creatures with good hearts.
* TheComicallySerious: Joyelle's so utterly serious that the font she uses in her speech bubbles is different than normal.
* DarkActionGirl
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette:
* EvilIsSexy: In-universe example. Rocky commented that "it was actually kinda hot, in an evil librarian sort of way."
* {{Flight}}
* {{Foil}}: The serious, unfunny half of the dynamic Joyelle and Zeggriz share.
* GenreBlind: Led to her downfall.
* TheHeartless: Joyelle has been described by Julie as "an evil incarnation of joyless toil."
* HonorBeforeReason: Joyelle gives Julie's group a chance to rest before fighting them, and when they do fight Joyelle fights fairly (for the most part).
* ItIsDehumanizing: Most of Julie's group don't refer to the Erinyes as a female, but as a genderless monster.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Along with Zeggriz.]]
* LawfulEvil[[invoked]]: In keeping with the [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons source material]] this comic pays homage to in regards to Devils.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Though she's a Devil.
* OutsideContextVillain: Aside from her being here to hunt down and destroy Jordie (and Julie as a plan B target), there is next to no information on why this devil is in the story.
* PerpetualFrowner: Joyelle physically ''can't'' smile because the Erinyes lacks the facial muscles.
* SpeechBubbles: Joyelle's are dark red with yellow text, symbolizing she's an evil outsider.
* SpockSpeak: Never uses contractions when speaking, and even uses a less comic-y font in her speech balloons.
* VillainTeleportation: Can use this at will, but oddly enough did [[HonorBeforeReason not use this to her advantage]] when battling Julie and her friends.
* WingedHumanoid: Joyelle resembles some kind of fallen angel.

[[folder:Zeggriz the Imp]]
[[quoteright:202:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Zeggriz_4455.jpg]]
'''Zeggriz the Imp'''

->''"For Sarbek's Sake, this is so BORING! Go Back to talking about your feats, lack of enchanted weapons, and weaknesses."''

Zeggriz is the snarky underling of Joyelle, spying and performing other errands.

* BeleagueredAssistant: Doesn't seem to enjoy working for Joyelle at all.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mouths off to Joyelle whenever possible.
* DirtyCoward: Would rather go invisible and sit in the sidelines than help Joyelle fight.
* {{Flight}}
* {{Foil}}: Supplies the less serious half to the dynamic Zeggriz and Joyelle share.
* TheImp: Appropriately enough.
* {{Invisibility}}: One of Zeggriz's powers, and uses it for spying.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Along with Joyelle.]]
* LawfulEvil[[invoked]]: Not nearly as uptight as Joyelle, though.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Though a devil like Joyelle.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: Definitely to Lenny, and probably to Joyelle as well.
* SpeechBubbles: Zeggriz's are dark red with yellow text, though in the normal font unlike [[SpockSpeak Joyelle's.]]
