* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: This applies to any team of Shadowchasers to a certain degree, but to the Backwater team more than any other. Tsubasa and Rave are the only ones that are truly human, and all of them are unusual even when compared to Shadowkind, either races that are incredibly rare on Earth (at least in this sort of situation) or unique beings entirely.

* BiTheWay
* [[CoolHorse Cool]] HellishHorse: She owns a nightmare named Alexandre, which she is able to summon using a magical orb carried on her belt. A nightmare is described as “to warhorses as unicorns were regular horses” which are “conceived at a new moon and born on one”, a creature of savage fury. Fayte more or less had to catch Alexandre and wrestle her into submission and then survive the battle before the Nightmare accepted her as a rider; despite spending two months in the hospital later, she succeeded.
* DarkIsNotEvil: But not entirely nice either.
* TheDreaded: Due to her species.
* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench: She ''is'' from France, originally, specifically from Glascony.

* BlingBlingBang: She has a silver handgun with the word ''Tempest'' engraved on it, which fired incredibly powerful bolts of elemental energy when loaded with gemstones. The downside is, it costs about $5 grand a shot. The known types of energy that can be fired from it and the corresponding ammunition are:

* [[OlderThanHeLooks Older Than She Looks]]: Jalal claims she's been in the organization for at ''least'' sixty years, and she may indeed be as old as the NES system that she was created from.

However, by legal definition, an electronic device like a an NES cannot spawn a true Tsukumogami, so the best thing to call her would probably be simply a “spirit”; anything else wouldn’t fit.

* KnightInShiningArmor: The theme of her deck. (It is described as somewhat unorthodox, using Normal Tribute Monsters like Gaia the Fierce Knight in a time where Synchros and Xyzs dominate. But it is quite deadly when used right.) Fayte herself also qualifies due to her ideals of knighthood.

Known as "the Librarian", he is a powerful being and ally of the Shadowchasers whose origins are mostly unknown. He is a good friend to Jalal (Though seems to have a habit of dragging Jalal out on adventures that invariably wind-up with them imprisoned.) and a past acquaintance of the Shadow Queen (the ''Redux'' incarnation to be precise). Easily identified by his silver cat ears and tail, as well as his flamboyant and vibrantly-colored trenchcoats.

An evil sorcerer who summoned Tsuki and kept her as a slave for over a century, his cruelty was enough to break even the will of a demon, and send her into utter despair. Originally seen in a flashback, he appeared in the flesh (well, figuratively) in ''Fanfic/RiseOfTheShadowKing''

* NoNameGiven: "Mister Monster" is what Tsuki calls him. She never learned any other name. (The author claims even ''he'' may have forgotten it.)
* OrangeAndBlueMorality: His understanding of ethics and morals is not like that of normal people. He doesn't consider himself evil (but does not claim to be good either), even when he knowingly and willingly commits actions that clearly are. [[ForScience The ends justify the means]] in his eyes, although whatever his true goal is, none can say.
* SummoningRitual: His other specialty was demonology, and can summon fiends from the underworld. (Tsuki was not the only one he summoned and used. The others weren't as lucky.)
* SuperBreedingProgram: This was why he summoned Tsuki in the first place - to use as a breeding slave as part of an experiment to create powerful half-fiends. (Tsuki was ''very'' lucky, at least compared to his other subjects. She never bore any children as a result of it, and as a result, that may be why he ultimately started to pay less attention to her.)
