!!Current Inhabitants


!!Thomas [=McNair=]
->'''Tom''': ''I ain't done nowt!''
->'''Annie''': ''You haven't done anything!''
->'''Tom''': ''Exactly!''
->'''Annie''': ''No, Tom, I'm not agreeing with you. Your grammar is appalling.''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TomBH_2128.jpg]]

* {{Adorkable}}: He's basically a kid, bless him. It comes from the innocent way [=McNair=] brought him up.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted
* AscendedExtra: Gets promoted to the main cast in series 4.
* BadAss: One of the biggest on the show. He can easily take vampires on hand to hand. When he has stakes, he can mow through mooks.
** BadassFamily: He got it from [=McNair=]
** BadassLongCoat: Usually wears one, but is more fond of dressing down.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: although we get to know him pretty well as a badass first, there is a certain amount of Mood Whiplash when Tom can change from being a bouncy overgrown man child to a cold hard killer with a stake pointed at someones chest in the space of about 5 seconds.
* BigBrotherInstinct: For Eve. [[spoiler: He gives her to the Old Ones because they would protect her, and also chooses to became their servant to be with her]].
* BreadEggsMilkSquick/ ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: The reasons he hates vampires:
-->'''Tom:''' The're arrogant, egotistical, predatory, they often have a stupid haircut... what was the other one? There was an other one. Oh, yeah, they killed my dad, Hal.
** And as [=McNair=] told him:
-->'''Tom:''' Always be kind and polite and have the material to build a bomb.
* [[spoiler: {{Brought Down To Normal}}: After the Devil is killed, the werewolf curse is lifted. ''If'' he was killed...]]
* DeadpanSnarker: He has his moments
-->'''Tom:''' Even [=McNair=] gave me a name, and [[spoiler: he ''ate'' my parents]].
* [[spoiler: DeathSeeker: In the apocalyptic future Tom get himself killed in a cage fight 'cause he couldn't bear the burden of having killed some humans]].
* {{Determinator}}: Tom manages to run to the hotel from the nearby woods while transforming, without killing anyone. This is impressive enough, but he then enters the hotel and ignores Hal, which all instincts tell him to attack on sight, and tackles the werewolf Bobby into a hotel room. No other werewolf has managed to equal such an act of control.
* HeCleansUpNicely: In his hotel assistant manager uniform. Black suit and tie, red waistcoat: looking good.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: When threatening Hal, he claims he enjoys each vampire kill more than the last.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: He's becoming one with Hal.
* HormoneAddledTeenager: Very much so, especially concerning his crush on Nina.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He confesses this in the fourth season.
-->'''Tom:''' I thought I was gonna do something normal. Finally be like everybody else.
* {{Innocent Bigot}}: Due to the traditional way [=McNair=] brought him up, Alex initially finds his behavior towards women patronising.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Like most supernaturals, Tom can see ghosts.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: They're both werewolves [[spoiler: except they're not related ]]
* LimitedWardrobe: He's often seen wearing his grey t-shirt, beige shorts and [[BadassLongcoat long green coat]], particularly when vampire hunting. In more formal settings he wears a rather horrible orange shirt.
* MissingMom: She was killed [[spoiler: along with Tom's biological father by [=McNair=].]]
* MoralityChain: Hal asks him to be one, and he accepts.
* MysteriousAnimalSenses: His senses are the best shown so far on the show, as he's been a werewolf for a long time.
* NotGoodWithPeople: Justified, as he was raised by a werewolf in total isolation.
* NoSocialSkills: Though he seems to be improving slightly. It comes from being brought up alone by his dad, with no education beyond killing vampires and survival, and no friendships.
* [[spoiler: ObliviousAdoption: was adopted by [=McNair=] after he killed Thomas's family while in wolf form]]
* OddFriendship: With Hal. Their personalities could not be more different.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: When he realizes he's going to transform in a nightclub]].
* PainfulTransformation: Transforming into a werewolf is clearly painful. Poor Tom.
* PuppyDogEyes: Appropriately.
* RaisedByWolves
* SkilledButNaive: He's a great vampires slayer, but he's very innocent and easy to deceive.
* StalkerWithACrush: Towards Nina. A mild example, but he does sneak into her house to leave her a present.
* WildChild
* WolfMan: Is a werewolf.
* [[spoiler:YouKilledMyFather: Turns out his father figure [=McNair=] was the one who killed his family. Tom still considers him his dad though.]]

!!Henry "Hal" Yorke
->'''Hal''': ''I cannot sleep in a barn, or a tent or a caravan or anywhere without central heating, carpets and Radio 4, and that should be on my list.''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HalBH_4831.jpg]]


* {{Adorkable}}: Despite starting out as quite serious, he has his moments. He sings while washing up.
-->'''Hal:''' And I had a shield. A ''red'' one!
* TheAtoner: Is making up for a very bloody past. Other notorious vampires, such as Ivan, Wyndham and Hettie, are mentioned to have feared him.
* BadassBookworm: Likes to read, and also happens to kick ass.
* [[spoiler:BigBad: In the apocalyptic future he's one of the cruelest Old Ones]].
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Like the other vampires, when he goes into full on 'vamp' mode.
* [[spoiler: {{Brought Down To Normal}}: After the Devil is killed, he turns back into a human, finally allowing him to see his reflection again after 500 years. ''If'' he was killed...]]
* CatapultNightmare: After dreaming to kill Tom and Eve.
* CompanionCube: He often carries around a domino.
* CulturedBadass: In addition to reading poetry, he enjoys embroidery, origami, and playing the lute ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOjmJOVBVV0&feature=relmfu "the coolest of all medieval stringed instruments"]]).
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He's been a vampire for centuries, and his past bloodlust is notorious.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: Definitely.
-->'''Hal:''' ''(to Annie)'' Are you somehow drunk?
* DirtyCoward: Back in UsefulNotes/WW1 he [[spoiler: made one of his men give his blood to be part of the Trinity, instead of his own which resulted in it failing and the devil escaping]]
* TheDreaded: One of the most feared and revered characters on the show.
* FishOutOfWater: Hal doesn't quite fit in with Annie and Tom to start with, but he slowly adjusts as he becomes closer to them.
** They hit you with this in episode 2, when the very Fifties Hal and Pearl make a sharp contrast to the slightly tacky Seventies Disco Fabulous look of the house.
* FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampire: His current phase after 500 years of vice and murder. Deconstructed in that we see the ridiculous lengths and routine Hal goes to to stop himself attacking others, and that without his morality chains he goes out of control easily.
* GenreSavvy: When Kirby threatens him to reveal his past, he tries to confess it before Kirby has the chance. He's also able to to recognize Yvonne as a succubus the moment it affects him.
** When Hatch offers the housemates dream realities where they can be human, he has to take a different approach as Hal works out quickly that this is a trick. Hatch tells Hal that in this world he would live a human life, but in fact Hal would just die of a lance wound. Despite the fact that Hal is almost dead, Hatch still has to resort to distracting him with a fake Leo to prevent Hal from instantly rejecting his offer.
* GoodOldWays: Hal feels acute nostalgia for the late medieval period. He mentions preferring the dowry system to modern dating.
* HatesBeingTouched: He's very uncomfortable when touched. His reaction to Annie hugging him is hilarious
* [[HasTwoMommies Had Six Mommies]]: He was born in a brothel and never knew which of the six prostitutes was his biological mother. When they died, he mourned each one of them as if they were blood related.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Leo.
** Looks like he's becoming this way with Tom, too.
* IconicOutfit: He always wears his shirts buttoned-up to the top.
* ISeeDeadPeople: He's lived with a ghost for the past fifty years or so, and of course can see Annie.
* JekyllAndHyde: When Hal gets close to a switch between good and evil, he falls unconscious and flashes between them.
** EnemyWithin: Implying that Hal represses his violent tendencies to the point they're nearly a completely separate identity.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: He strangles the werewolf Larry after he takes advantage of Tom, steals the money he was saving for his father's tombstone and systematically destroys Tom's confidence. Hal finally goes over the edge when Larry deliberately provokes Hal into attacking him, and calls Alex a slag and Tom a retard.
* KnifeNut: In his fight with [[spoiler: Tom McNair]], Bad!Hal takes out a small knife and shows a great proficiency with it
* ManlyTears: When Leo dies, when Kirby threatens to reveal his bloody past etc.
* MrFanservice: Very much so.
* NailedToTheWagon: Tom [[spoiler: with Alex at the end of series 4]] ties him to a chair to get him off blood again.
* NoSocialSkills: He's a vampire, he has OCD, he's been out of society for more than fifty years, he thinks relaxing would end with him killing someone... he's ''very'' awkward around people. His attempt at flirting was no better than Tom's.
* OddFriendship: He and Tom are completely different personality-wise, but they're best friends, and Hal tells Tom that he is the best man he knows.
* OffTheWagon: He enters half a decade of sobriety occasionally, then goes off the wagon and back to evil in a cycle.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: ''No one'' calls him Henry, always Hal.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Like the rest of the vampires in the series, but Hal also doesn't seem to shy away from sunlight or wear sunglasses to help with the glare.
* [[spoiler: PropheticFallacy: Despite having his arm burnt by Tom's blood, he's not Eve's nemesis.]]
* [[spoiler: PuttingOnTheReich: In the BadFuture controlled by the Vampires, Hal is essentially their version of Hitler.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Hal is actually over 500 years old and an Old One.
* SingleTear: After Kirby tries really hard to break him.
* ShirtlessScene: While doing press ups.
* SherlockScan: When he confronts a journalist who falsely reported that the Box Tunnel Murderer was a cannibal, he works out that she couldn't have been bribed as her expensive clothes are at least a year old, so she didn't need money. Furthermore her eyes are red and her fingers are stained from smoking, but she didn't have a smoker's usual wrinkled upper lip, so she's suffering recent stress. Therefore he worked out she's being threatened into doing it.
** [[spoiler: Depending on the canonicity of "[[DeletedScene The Extra Scene]]", Hal manages to [[SpottingTheThread quickly figure out]] that they're all still trapped within Hatch's illusions.]]
* SonOfAWhore: Although he's not sure which one.
* StrongerWithAge: Hal is now so old crucifixes have no effect on him.
* SuperOCD: He's followed strict rules for the past 55 years to avoid drinking human blood, such as avoiding human contact, meditating and obsessively stacking dominoes and then taking the structure apart.
* TheGrovel: To [[spoiler: Cutler]] to get him to stop his evil plan.
* VampiresAreRich: Subverted: he made bad investments.

!!Alex Millar
->'''Alex''': ''I don't care if you have enough Viagra to fill Titanic. Nobody is doing any rising on my watch!''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alex_millar_2_6814.jpg]]

* AlmostKiss: But then Hal runs away...
* [[spoiler: AndIMustScream: When Hatch briefly trapped her within her own grave, beside her own corpse.]]
* [[spoiler: {{Back From The Dead}}: After the Devil is killed for good, she stops being a ghost and turns back into a human. She immediately changes her clothes and gorges herself on food. ''If'' she was killed...]]
* BadDate: First time Hal was terrified and eventually runs away. Second time Hal was drunk, rude and downright creepy so she left.
* CassandraTruth: [[spoiler: She alone realizes that Hatch has something to do with the suicides at the hotel but neither Hal nor Tom are much interested in helping her. Then she works alone to expose him only to get hurled into her own grave for her trouble.]]
* {{Cool Big Sis}}: For both Tom and Oliver the Victorian ghost boy.
* [[spoiler: CuteGhostGirl]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Possibly the biggest snarker on the show so far.
* FiveStagesOfGrief: She says she's angry.
* [[spoiler: LimitedWardrobe]]
* TheLadette: Has trouble talking to other women, loves sports, hates wearing dresses, and finds men easier to get along with. Lampshaded when Oliver states that he's "Never met a more un-lady like lady."
* OneOfTheBoys: Seems the case: Alex has three brothers and a father, and states that she knows everything about boys' interests.
* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe. [[spoiler: Alex is beyond pissed that Hal drank her blood, and keeps bringing it up]].
* [[spoiler: StuffedIntoTheFridge: Courtesy of Cutler]].
** Her story lives up to the letter of the trope, but not the spirit: [[spoiler: her death isn't a cheap way to motivate a male character, it's what introduces her as a character to the larger BeingHuman story]].
* [[spoiler: TemporaryLoveInterest: Set up to be this. Then she dies and became a ghost]].
* TomboyishName
* {{Tomboy}}: [[spoiler: Her reaction to can't change clothes, ever? "But I look like a girl!"]].
* [[spoiler: UnfinishedBusiness: She doesn't know yet. Hal's going to help to find out]].
* [[spoiler: UnresolvedSexualTension: A ''ton'' of this with Hal, often overlapping with...]]
** [[spoiler: BelligerentSexualTension: ... since it's partially [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom his fault]] she's dead and he also [[OffTheWagon drank]] some of her blood.]]

!!Former Inhabitants

!!Anna Clare "Annie" Sawyer
->'''Mitchell''': ''Poltergeist.''
->'''Annie''': ''See, you know the terms, you know how this works. I mean, do you know if I can channel it? Because I have been dying to pull that fridge out and clean behind it.''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AnnieBH_926.jpg]]

* {{Adorkable}}: She can be just as squeaky and neurotic as George at times, when she's not delving into total Woobie status.
* BerserkButton: You can insult Annie's fashion sense, or the house she lives in, but don't ''ever'' insult her tea.
-->'''Pearl:''' We'll need to start using a new brand of tea. That stuff you make always looks very anaemic.
-->'''Annie:''' There is ''nothing'' wrong with my tea.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Annie is the sweetest person you could hope to meet, but she's something else whenever she gets angry.
* ComboPlatterPowers: She's easily the most powerful member of the main cast. Annie has telekinesis, teleportation, invisiblity to muggles, walking through walls, seeing auras, sensing and transmitting thoughts and feelings through physical contact, indestructibility unless she loses her connection to her house or loved ones, and the ability to destroy other ghosts. Ghosts also can hide others in the clothes they died in, making them invisible, and she can also share her memories with others so they may be able to see them, but they exist in her place in her own memories.
* CuteGhostGirl: Annie is ''adorable'' in looks and personality.
* TheDitz: Occasionally.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Poor Annie has been through so much, being murdered, being sent to the afterlife and then being dragged back, watching the man she loved [[spoiler: go through a mental breakdown that saw him becoming little more than a monster]] having to [[spoiler: watch her three close friends die]], having to protect baby Eve from danger and [[spoiler: having to ''kill'' baby Eve to save the world. It's only fitting that she was finally able to move on and get her happy ending.]]
* TheEmpath: In Series 2 she learned to feel tastes and sensations through physical contact.
* FearlessUndead: She often reminds others (and herself) that, being dead already, she has very little to fear from any physical danger. She can however be taken into the afterlife by other ghosts or mysterious otherworldly forces, and removing her emotional connections allows her to be disintegrated. She's come back from the latter once due to her friends coming back and sheer willpower, but Herrick suggests that burning down her house and killing her friends would destroy her permanently.
* FoeTossingCharge: Just one of her ghostly abilities.
* FreudianSlip: When Tully grabs Annie's arm she calls him [[spoiler:Owen and says he's hurting her]].
* GhostAmnesia: Annie is initially unclear on the circumstances of her death, this appears to be pretty common among Ghosts.
* GhostlyGoals: Annie's goals for staying in the realm of the living seem to change throughout the series. First she had to get revenge on [[spoiler: her murderer Owen]], then she had to [[spoiler: kill Eve]].
* JacobMarleyApparel: Annie's been stuck wearing the same outfit since she died, but how she wears it can change depending on her mood. Her floaty top will be wrapped up if she's feeling anxious, but will be open if she's feeling relaxed.
* LetsGetDangerous: Most of the time Annie's a nice girl, if a bit panicky and neurotic. If you threaten her loved ones though, she'll tap into her rarely-used ghost powers to drag you into the afterlife or wipe you from existence.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With all her boys really, but most evidently with George, who she often argues with, but shows a deep amount of love for.
* MindOverMatter: Due to strong emotions she became a poltergeist, randomly moving objects around her. After power increases Annie gains controlled telekinetic abilities when she has enough motivation, throwing vampires around in Series 1, and disarming another when Eve is threatened in Series 4.
* MoralityChain: To Mitchell.
* MundaneAfterlife: [[spoiler: Annie's supposed "hell" (although more likely some form of purgatory) is a waiting room full of red tape and many different forms to be filled in anticipation of something.]]
* TrueCompanions: With George and Mitchell. Despite all the bad things that happened between them, in the end, its clear that they would do anything for one another.
* NotAfraidOfYouAnymore: To Owen. It doesn't work at first. Later it works very, very well.
* ParentalSubstitute: [[spoiler: To Eve]].
** MamaBear:
--> '''Annie:''' Give me back my [[PrecisionFStrike FUCKING]] baby!
* RedEyesTakeWarning: It seemed to simply be a result of the way the scene was staged and lit instead of anything deliberate, but when Annie completely annihilates Owen, her dark brown eyes have switched over to a light purplish-blue. It's subtle enough to be very unsettling.
* SadisticChoice: Kill Eve and save the world or to protect Eve but let the Old Ones take over the world? [[spoiler: She kills Eve and the Old Ones, saving the world]].
* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler:With Mitchell.]]
* StepfordSmiler: By the fourth series, implied by Hal.
-->'''Hal:''' God. Annie, yours is even better than mine.
-->'''Annie:''' My what?
-->'''Hal:''' Your mask.
* TakingYouWithMe: A kind of time-delayed variation [[spoiler: in the Series 2 finale after Kemp forces her through a door, she pops back out of one to drag him into the afterlife and save her friends when he tracks them down later.]]
* TheHeart: Serves as the heart of both trios.
* TheOtherDarrin: Annie's part was recast after the pilot.
* TalkingYourWayOut:[[spoiler: To Lia in the finale]].
* TeamMom: Especially for [[spoiler: the second trio]].
* TeleportersAndTransporters: She can't bring anything with her though.
* TookALevelInBadass: After discovering exactly what ghostly powers she had. Confronting her abusive ex certainly helped.
* TrapDoor: [[spoiler: Literally.]]
* UhOhEyes: When Annie gets royally pissed, her eyes turn [[IcyBlueEyes ice blue.]]
* WhodunnitToMe: Annie doesn't have any idea about who killed her at the start of the series. [[spoiler: The scene where she finds out is heartbreaking.]]
* WomanScorned: Annie was abused [[spoiler: and killed]] by her ex partner Owen. She eventually gets her revenge.
* YouCanSeeMe: In the pilot, and once or twice since then.


!!George Sands
->''My name's George, and I am a werewolf.''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/GeorgeBH_3813.jpg]]

* {{Adorkable}}: Getting ready for a date, he spends five minutes running in an out of the kitchen, pulling clothes on as he does.
* ArbitrarySkepticism
-->'''Josie''': "Oh right, I thought perhaps you were a wizard or something."
-->'''George''': "A wizard? That's ridiculous."
* BewareTheNiceOnes: George is a shy, awkward man who simply wants a simple, normal life. But once a month he becomes a killing machine, and George himself has knowingly killed several vampires, including [[spoiler: Herrick.]]
* BlatantLies: But is terrible at it.
* EnemyWithin: The werewolf is implied in series 2 to be an actual separate entity within him. George himself considers it as such for most of Series 1. When he tried to sedate the wolf to prevent the change, it worked, but caused several unfortunate side effects. George claims that the wolf knew what he did and was ''pissed'' it wasn't allowed to get out!
* EvilFeelsGood: In the pilot, George says that the ''worst'' part of his lycanthropy is that some part of him ''looks forward to it''.
* HandOrObjectUnderwear
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: He forces himself to transform to save his daughter from vampires, the process of which kills him in minutes.]]
* HollywoodNerd: He's a dork, but he's awfully pretty. And he sure gets naked a lot.
* FantasticReligiousWeirdness: George is still Jewish, but no longer very observant, as he feels that Judaism would frown on the whole turning-into-a-wolf thing.
* GenreSavvy:
--> '''George''': "Right, so we have a defrocked priest and a mad scientist. No, no alarm bells ringing so far."
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Justified. Being a werewolf here is largely a curse, and transforming is described as agony beyond words.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: To Mitchell.
* ImprovisedWeapon: It's always sort of pathetic though and just emphasizes his NonActionGuy status
--> '''George''': "Who wants some of my chair?"
* InformedJudaism In the pilot George mentioned he gave up on most Jewish practices when he became a werewolf, but his faith shows up now and again.
* ISeeDeadPeople: One of the side effects of being supernatural.
* [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies It's Not You, It's My Enemies]]: George absolutely loves this excuse.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:For cheating on Nina with Daisy. It's never revealed.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: George sadly dies from multiple organ failure after [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome forcing a change despite it not being full moon]] just so that he could save his baby daughter.]]
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With Annie. They often fight, and he finds her irritating a lot of the time, but they are shown to really love one another.
* MistakenForGay: People who are acquainted with both George and Mitchell but don't know them well tend to assume they're lovers. Mitchell, who's bi, laughs it off--but George, who is straight, is indignant. (His strong denials become even funnier when you take into account [[RealitySubtext his actor is gay]].)
* MoralityChain: Tries to be one to Mitchell, not entirely successfully.
* MysteriousAnimalSenses: All his senses get enhanced before and after a transformation, particularly his smell.
* TrueCompanions: With Annie and Mitchell. Despite all the bad things that happened between them, in the end, its clear that they would do anything for one another.
* NonActionGuy: "Who wants some of my chair?"
* NonhumanLoverReveal: His romantic relationships.
* NoSocialSkills: As part of the adorkable theme. He turns into a stuttering moron around women.
* OnlySaneMan
--> '''George''': "Oh my God, has everyone taken Stupid Pills?"
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Changes only during the full moon, is pure animal mentally, has no memory of his actions, and has heightened senses--especially smell--for a few days before and after.
* PainfulTransformation: We see it repeatedly, and get a rather nasty description of the process from Mitchell.
* [[spoiler: PapaWolf: Literally in 'Eve of the War'.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Nina's red.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: With actual roaring. He wipes out most of the vampires who [[spoiler: arranged Nina's brutal murder]] while partially transformed.
* ScarsAreForever: The scars from the werewolf who infected him.
* [[spoiler:StakingTheLovedOne: [[ICannotSelfTerminate When he stakes Mitchell. ]]]]
* SuperLoser: Once a month he turns into a killing machine. And he couldn't stand up for himself if he wanted otherwise.
* TookALevelInBadass: Several times, only for him to go back to being pathetic. [[spoiler:As of the season 3 finale it appears to be permanent]].
* TourettesSyndrome: Exhibited mood swings and a severe case of Tourettes as a side effect of sedated himself to prevent the change.
* ViralTransformation: The wolf.
* WolfMan: Kinda goes without saying.
* [[spoiler:YourCheatingHeart: Has sex with Daisy.]]

!!John Mitchell
->''When in Rome, stop... killing the other Romans.''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MitchellBH_316.jpg]]

* TheAtoner: A DeconstructedTrope.
* ButNotTooBi: Played completely straight. We are given passing mention to the fact that Mitchell likes men too, but absolutely no evidence of that interest.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: When he vamps up, his eyes become black.
* BrokenAce: Mitchell is handsome, charming, funny and a legend within the vampire community. He's also a self-loathing addict who hates his reputation and is well aware that he is a danger to others.
* ByronicHero: Mitchell has flaws, and they make him a well rounded character.
* DatingCatWoman: Lauren.
* DomesticAbuser: Shows shades of this towards Annie when he was in his {{Jerkass}} phase during series three.
* MrFanservice: Oh ''my'', yes.
* FamedInStory / MemeticBadass: Mitchell is something of a legend among vampires, even getting his own creepy FanBoy stalker. They tell stories about his murders, particularly Herrick.
** MisaimedFandom: He is none too pleased about it though, complaining that his actions can be seen as an inspiration to other vampires.
* EvilFeelsGood: Like all vampires, it's hard for Mitchell to resist the lure of being evil and giving in to his blood addiction.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Deconstructed and subverted. Mitchell is an addict, and simply can't stop himself killing others, no matter how good his intentions are. In fact his attempts to be a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire possibly make his situation worse, as after going without blood for a long time, when he kills again it's often particularly bloody.
* GlamourFailure: He doesn't appear in mirrors or on cameras, the latter of which gets him in trouble in series 3.
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile: He does because he finally gets to be at peace, and it's both heartwarming and heartbreaking.]]
* HorrorHunger: In this universe, blood addiction is psychological.
* IconicItem: His black fingerless gloves. In-universe he wears them as vampires are cold.
* IHateYouVampireDad: At first he got on great with Herrick. By the time of the series, not so much.
* ISeeDeadPeople: One of the side effects of being supernatural.
* KarmaHoudini: Arguably considering his involvement in the massacre of at least 20 people. [[spoiler: Eventually Averted.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Although it remains to be seen whether he will be resurrected or not, If Herrick is to be believed he probably can't be.]]
** WordOfGod says [[spoiler: he's dead for good. But then he said the same about Herrick after Series 1]].
** Very doubtful now that [[spoiler: George, Nina and Annie are all dead, and there's a new trio heading the show.]]
* LastNameBasis: Hardly anyone calls him John.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: Josie.
* MoodSwinger: Sometimes taken to the extreme.
* TrueCompanions: With George and Annie. Despite all the bad things that happened between them, in the end, its clear that they would do anything for one another.
* OffTheWagon: Poor Mitchell falls victim to this with his blood addiction, but he tends to hold up better than most.
* TheOtherDarrin: Mitchell's part was recast after the pilot.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Immortality and everlasting youth, sure, but Mitchell and the other vampires can tolerate some sunlight, and they eat like regular humans.
* PoisonousFriend: Both Annie and George are forced to kill due to their friendship with him, and would otherwise have avoided the vampire war.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Actually fairly young by TV vampire standards. As of Series 3, he was 117. He was born July 29, 1893 and died in World War I.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath]]
* StakingTheLovedOne: Lauren.
* TeamDad: Definitely has his moments. Even gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]].
* TookALevelInJerkass: Probably over laps with SanitySlippage but Mitchell becomes increasingly more of a jerkass due to paranoia over his "wolf-shaped bullet" [[spoiler: and the return of Herrick]]
* TragicDream: Fighting his addiction to blood turns out to be one.
* TragicHero: Well more anti-hero, sliding down the scale as the show progresses.
* TragicMonster: He doesn't want to kill people, but he's an addict all the same.
* WarmBloodbagsAreEverywhere: Mitchell ''almost'' attacks those around him a lot. An awful lot.
* [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]


!!Nina Pickering
->''Saying "it's not you, it's me" is a stabbable offence in my book, and I can easily get my hands on scalpels.''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NinaBH_2304.jpg]]

Nina works at the hospital with Mitchell and George. She and George began dating during season 1.
* AscendedExtra: She was originally meant to be written out at the end of series 1, but come season 3 she's one of the main characters.
* [[spoiler: AbusiveParents: Her mother used to hit her as a child.]]
* [[spoiler:ButICantBePregnant[=!=] : becomes pregnant despite being on the pill due to her being in wolf form at the time.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* FakeNationality: Sinead Keenan is Irish
* HeroicBSOD: Goes into one when she finds out [[spoiler:Mitchell was responsible for the Box Tunnel 20 massacre.]]
* [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies It's Not You, It's My Enemies]]: George sends... ''mixed'' signals.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Nina's ''beaten to death'' by vampires with baseball bats just a week after the birth of her daughter. This thankfully happens between series.]]
* KnightInSourArmour
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Until the end of series 1.
* TheMedic: Nina is a nurse by profession (the first time we meet her she's chewing George out for making a mistake that's caused trouble on her ward), and in Season Three, any time someone needs some patch up, she's the one who gets out the first-aid kit and gets to work. Although nursing is usually seen as a low-status profession, in a household where Mitchell is a hospital cleaner, George is a porter and Annie is usually too insubstantial to be able to get a job at all, being a highly competent nurse puts Nina at the top of the professional status ladder.
* MysteriousPast: The scars mentioned below.
* {{Muggle}}: Initially.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: She and George take turns being this.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to George's blue.
* ScarsAreForever: Nina has a terrible burn scar on her abdomen, inflicted on her deliberately[[note]][[WordOfGod According to actor Sinead Keenan]], speaking at Comic-Con 2010, it was done by a past lover--hinting at HorribleJudgeOfCharacter on Nina's part[[/note]]. She doesn't like to talk about it. As of the end of season 1, she also has scars from claw-swipe from George.

* BadAss: Hinted to have been one when he was younger, as he was a very successful in the werewolf cage fights run by vampires.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He killed other werewolves when he was forced to take part in cage fights by vampires.
** It may be even worse, as the vampires' fights aren't only werewolf vs. werewolf but also werewolf vs. harmless human.
* DyingDeclarationOfLove: To Pearl.
* HeHadAName: According to Hatch's illusion of him during "The Last Broadcast", even when he'd become too old and forgetful to remember what he'd had for breakfast that morning, he could never erase the names of the five people he killed during the cage fights.

** [[spoiler: He gets a new set back in season 3 to show that [[HesBack He's Back]], having massacred a house full of policemen.]].
* [[spoiler: ObfuscatingInsanity: sometimes after coming back from the dead]]
* OnlySaneEmployee: While his sanity is debatable, Herrick clearly considers his underlings to be a bunch of idiots. ''He's got a point''.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Born in the mid-19th century. The scriptwriters have some fun with this in season 3, where Herrick speaks with decidedly [[VictorianBritain Victorian]] cadences.
* [[spoiler: ResurrectionSickness: He's amnesiac and a bit senile to begin with.]]
* [[spoiler: RiseFromYourGrave: Naked and covered in blood. Not pretty.]]

!!Lia
->''This wasn't a game! This is revenge!''
A victim of the Box Tunnel Massacre, her spirit is hellbent on exacting revenge on Mitchell.

* BeingEvilSucks: Annie makes her realise that her quest for vengeance won't make her truly happy.
* BiggerBad
* BitchInSheepsClothing
* HeelFaceTurn: After Annie convinces her that her actions will hurt George just as much as Lia's own grieving family.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Her revenge on Mitchell.
* ProphecyTwist: Reveals to Annie that her prediction that Mitchell would be killed by a werewolf was actually a lie to mess with his mind and turn him against George and Nina.

* SuperLoser: Every fair fight he's in he loses. Heck, he gets taken out by "the world's gayest ninjas".

!!Ivan
->''I'm just one step away from wiping out an entire branch of Argos.''
An old vampire, vaguely acquainted with Mitchell in the "bad old days". Supremely bored, smugly superior, and willing to cause whatever chaos he likes, just to sit back and watch it all.
* AvengingTheVillain: Half-heartedly. He really doesn't care about Herrick and is just interested in meeting George
* FauxAffablyEvil
* BlackEyesOfEvil
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Ivan's speech to Mitchell on what would happen if supernaturals were discovered.
--> '''Ivan''': What, are you imagining some kind of peaceful co-existence? It'd be chaos! Worldwide panic. Good news for religion, mind, especially Christianity. There'd be standing room only in the churches all of a sudden. And as soon as they knew about vampires, they'd know about werewolves, they'd know about ghosts. They'd be next. And when humanity had finally finished with us, it would turn on itself. First the other religions, massively in the minority now, then the homosexuals, the disabled... Do you want to know what the future looks like? Enforced worship in churches a mile high and every country surrounded by a coral reef of bones. *pause* But fuck it, maybe it should happen. There's nothing on TV at the moment.
* PetTheDog: As much of a bastard as he could be, Ivan really did love Daisy. He only agrees to help Mitchell provide a support group for vampires because he hears that Mitchell is trying to clean up his act for a woman. "Everyone deserves a Daisy", he tells him.
** He also saves Mitchell [[spoiler: by shielding him with his own body from the parlour explosion.]]
* WickedCultured

* ForScience
* RedemptionEqualsDeath

!!The Old Ones
The oldest and most powerful vampires, living out in South America and preparing to take over the world. Most of their names and histories aren't known, but their leader is Mr Snow.
* AffablyEvil/ FauxAffablyEvil: Mr Snow is soft-spoken and quite polite to Hal and Annie, but he's still pure evil and threatening.
** His dealings with Cutler show just how much of an arrogant, cruel and egocentric individual he really is though, belittling all who have no use to him.
* BiggerBad: They're behind vampires such as Wyndham and Cutler, the latter of which is a major season 4 villain.
* CreepyChild: Hettie, a 464 year old vampire, trapped in the body of an 8 year old girl.
--> '''Hettie''': Make sure they've got some crayons, in case I wanna draw some ponies and shit?
* EqualOpportunityEvil: Subverted. One of Mr Snow's closest allies and, it seems, friends is Milo, a werewolf. But Milo had to make ''horrific'' sacrifices to be accepted by the Old Ones.
* [[spoiler: KillEmAll: Annie blows up every Old One apart from Hal and Hettie (The little girl) in the series 4 finale.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Mr Snow
* MonsterProgenitor: It's unlikely that the first vampires are among them (two Asian brothers), but they've sired other vampires on the show. Hettie sired Herrick, for example.
** Hal states that most vampires can trace their lines back to Mr Snow, making him one of the oldest vampires, although not one of the original duo.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They're like the others in the show but stronger, and Wyndham can enter houses uninvited. Mr Snow also has rotten teeth instead of fangs for unknown reasons.
* PalsWithJesus: Well not pals, but Mr Snow claims he met "the son of the carpenter".
* RedRightHand: Mr Snow has blue veins covering his face, rotten teeth and rashes around his eyes, possibly because he's so old.
* SmugSnake: Mr Snow acts as if everything will go his way, and treats anyone who isn't an Old One with largely bored contempt.
* StockEvilOverlordTactics: They want to overrun Britain with [[SuperPoweredMooks vampire soldiers]] then march in land taking cities, eventually moving onto the rest of the world. Cutler recognises just how idiotic this is in the modern world where military forces can be mobilised in minutes, so he's coming up with a different plan
* SuperStrength: Mr Snow provides the most impressive display on the show: disembowelling a man with one hand.
* StrongerWithAge: Wyndham can enter houses uninvited, and he's over 1000 years ago. However he implies it could just be a trick rather than a developed ability. Hal also states that Old Ones are unaffected by crucifixes. Mr Snow is also apparently the strongest vampire on the show.
* TaintedVeins: Mr Snow
* TakeOverTheWorld: It's their aim. [[spoiler: By 2037, they've almost succeeded.]]
* TheUnmasquedWorld: They're preparing it by taking over Britain first, then the world.
* VampireMonarch: They're considered practically royalty. Even Hal, who's a mere 500 years old and has been off the radar for 55 years, has local vampires deferring to him and calling him "lord".
* VillainExitStageLeft: [[spoiler: Although dubious whether she had a choice or not, Hettie, the only surviving Old One of the group, accepts Rooks proposal to let her board a plane and go back to Bolivia, after Hal went and "cocked up" the original plan.]]

!!Kirby
A ghost from the 1970s, he says he's been sent [[spoiler: by Nina]] to help Annie with Eve. Actually, he's there to kill the baby.
* BitchInSheepsClothing
* DiscoDan: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LZ7z-VBycc#809189D2-7517-4af1-BAF0-1A36C3BB8640&numResults=0&command=%20m_objCurrentDocument.getElementById%28%27veohrecs_fr%27%29.style.height%20%3D%20%27107px%27%3B%20m_objCurrentDocument.getElementById%28%27Veoh_SpaceDiv%27%29.style.height%20%3D%20%2712px%27%3B%20m_objCurrentDocument.getElementById%28%27VeohCompass.LoadingDiv%27%29.style.height%20%3D%20%270px%27%3B%20m_objCurrentDocument.getElementById%28%27VeohCompass.LoadingDiv%27%29.style.display%20%3D%20%27none%27%3B Hilariuos and somewhat disturbing at the same time]].
* EvilFeelsGood: "Evil is like flying 1st class; do it once and you can never go back."
* GhostlyGoals: He's come back from the after life to kill Eve [[spoiler: on the orders of the future female resistance fighter]] so that he can stay in this life and keep killing in return.
* ManipulativeBastard: Plays Tom and Annie like fiddles. Only Hal is immune.
* SerialKiller: Claims he wanted to be known as such alongside 'the greats', and is bitterly disappointed to learn that 'The Toyman', his chosen name, hasn't become infamous in the years since his death.

!!Nicholas Cutler
A young, very modern vampire serving the Old Ones in Britain as best as he can.
* AffablyEvil
* AmoralAttorney
* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: Talks about mercy to Hal the same way humans might talk about depression or addiction - "It can happen to anyone, but I'm here to help you get over it."
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* CoDragons: With Fergus at first for the Old Ones.
* CryForTheDevil: One of the most sympathetic villains on the show
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Determinator}}: He endures [[spoiler: bursting into flame]] when he enters a home without an invitation
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Sort of. While he's keeping his plan to expose werewolves to humanity from the Old Ones at first, he attempts to proudly reveal it to them. However he doesn't follow them out of loyalty so much as a desire to be a "history maker".
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Checking his hi-tech phone while casually strolling past a screaming woman being drained by fellow vampires.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: His deceased wife.
* EvilFormerFriend: To [[spoiler: Hal]].
* EvilGloating: [[spoiler: He explained his plan to Alex before killing her]]
* FalseFriend: To Tom.
* GenreSavvy: He's coming up with a more sneaky plan for the Old Ones to take over the world than their original one, which involved landing on Britain with vampires and slaughtering anyone in the way.
* GloryHound: His primary motivation is to be remembered by all.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Cutler works the hardest out of all the vampires to aid the Old Ones in their conquest of the world, facing derision for his youth and lack of physical skill. Yet he is rejected by the Old Ones after the [[FanNickname Men In Grey]] cover up his reveal of the existence of werewolves.
* IHateYouVampireDad: Zig-zagged a little. He hasn't gotten over [[spoiler: Hal killing his wife]], but he still wants to make his sire proud and have him on his side.
* InfantImmortality: [[spoiler: Tries to avert it.]]
* ManipulativeBastard
* MonsterSobStory: [[spoiler: His wife was killed and he was tricked into drinking her blood by Hal.]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He comes very close to greatly aiding the vampires taking over the world, if it hadn't been for [[spoiler: ghost Alex]].
* NumberTwoForBrains: Zig-zagged. While Cutler is more intelligent, savvy and modern than most vampires and Old Ones, Mr Snow is so intelligent that Cutler isn't a rival.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Completely shown up and ridiculed by Mr Snow and the Old Ones
* PropheticFallacy: A possible contender for Eve's nemesis due to the vague prophecy, as he burns his arm when he enters Honolulu Heights uninvited.
* [[spoiler: RasputinianDeath: Burnt half to death and then staked.]]
* SarcasticDevotee: Towards his fellow vampires.
* [[spoiler: SelfImmolation]]
* SmugSnake: If he had lived up to his plans, he would have been one hell of a {{Magnificent Bastard}} though.
* SpeechImpediment: He has a slight lisp.
* TeamKiller: Kills Golda, a fellow vampire, as she stands in the way of his personal goals.
* TheDogBitesBack: After being rejected by the Old Ones and losing his chance of becoming a "history maker", [[spoiler: Cutler tries to kill Eve to wipe out all vampires. He fails.]]
* TragicDream: Cutler's primary motivation is his obsession with being a "history maker", a desire that [[spoiler: his maker Hal]] encouraged.
* VampireInvitation: The first vampire to show the consequences of ignoring it
* VillainousBreakdown: After the Old Ones reject him.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Seeks approval from [[spoiler: Hal]] and, to a lesser extent, the rest of the Old Ones.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds

!!Captain Hatch aka The Devil
A grumpy old man who lives in the hotel Hal and Tom get jobs in, he's actually the devil in human form, trapped in the body of a madman since 1918. He feeds off conflict between vampires and werewolves.
* AChatWithSatan: He tempts Hal, Alex and Tom with dream realities where they all get to live human lives.
* AffablyEvil: After he stops being a decrepit old man he seems to mellow out a bit, speaking politely to everyone.
* AlienGeometries: Turns Honolulu heights into this temporarily when Alex is trying to run away from [[spoiler: the men with sticks and rope.]] When she points out how they're back where they started, we get a brief look at an M.C. Escher painting of stairs leading everywhere. See also RealityWarper.
* [[spoiler: AmbiguousEnding: We are left unsure if the Devil won and destroyed the earth, or if he really is dead. Without WordOfGod we'll never know.]]
* ArcWords: He Will Rise.
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: It is implied The Devil may have sent the heroes to a dream world, ''while he causes the Apocalypse''...]]
* BigBad: Of Season 5.
** BiggerBad: Indirectly, he is the BigBad of the entire series, because he is responsible for the existence of vampires, werewolves and ghosts in the first place.
* BloodMagic: He was bound into human form by a combination of werewolf and vampire blood.
* BodyHorror: When he possesses the madman that has been placed for that exact purpose, he ends up bending impossibly backwards while laughing horribly, and even does some... disturbing things via his neck.
* ChaoticEvil: Invoked. It's his inherent nature, what he was created for. God apparently made the Devil to tempt and hinder mankind for some reason, partially to act as an example to humans that they can transcend. Hatch comments that they failed miserably, seemingly both impressed and disgusted that they became even ''worse'' during the century he '''wasn't''' there to tempt them!
* CompellingVoice: His primary power, with this he can: turn people into mind-controlled zombies, convince them their insides were on fire, tell a secret that they would never tell, or cause the entire UK to commit suicide.
* TheCorrupter
* DealWithTheDevil: Offers a dream of being human and normal lives to the Trinity, in return for not trying to stop him.
* DemonLordsAndArchDevils: Possibly. There's mention of a "beautiful" demon in series 4, and succubi exist. Their relation to him is unclear, though considering he apparently gave rise to both werewolves, vampires and the "men with sticks and ropes", he probably had a hand in creating them too.
* DemonicPossession: The Devil has no shape of his own so possesses the closest human vessel.
* DevilButNoGod: God gets mentioned in passing by TheDevil. Apparently He exists, He just [[GodIsFlawed isn't paying attention]], believing (wrongly) that humans are too evolved to screw up without him. So the Devil is now the most powerful being involved in mortal affairs.
* DevilInDisguise
* DevilInPlainSight: He's right under the Trinity's nose.
* [[spoiler: DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: He gets KilledOffForReal in the last episode. The ''Devil'' gets Killed off for ''Real''. Possibly not though as it is implied the Devil has sent the cast to dream reality where they 'think' they killed him. He meanwhile is ''destroying'' the ''real world'' ..]]
* DreamWeaver: a major plot point of the final episode, The Devil weaves several false realities to trap the heroes [[spoiler: he may have trapped them in a DreamWithinADream: and now they may all be trapped as he destroys the earth...]]
* [[spoiler: DyingAsYourself: After being abandoned by Hatch, his host mutters in confused French, before getting [[BoomHeadshot shot in the head]].]]
* EmotionEater
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: His primary aim.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He's first introduced screaming abuse at a young waitress.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: has a very lengthy (but awesome) one of these, once he has risen to full power in the final episode, just before he plans to make everyone in the world commit suicide...
--> '''The Devil''': “There are a couple of things I’d like to get off my chest. You see ever since you crawled from out of the primordial soup, and flopped on to the beach, I thought ''I'' was the one holding you back. Distracting you with shiny stuff and gun-powder, and then I was put on…the reserve bench, shall we say, and I thought ‘oh well, that’s that, without me whispering in their ears – they’ll build utopia’. (chuckles) … ''well'' deary me, I got ''that'' wrong. ''HE'' made you so he could retire, did you know that? You were meant to be the pinnacle of evolution, the creature so sophisticated and powerful you wouldn’t need ''HIM''. And he could go back to his gardening and his word-search puzzles… but what do you do? You elect leaders that despise you and rob you of your freedom and dignity, you pollute and devour your Eden, you know beauty to be false but you prostrate yourselves before it. you think to be a philistine is honest, to be educated is cunning, you find the lowest common denominator and then you ''dig'' ''deeper''. ''I'' was supposed to be the lesson, ''I'' was the warning, ''I'' was the villain, and you all became my tribute act... there is nothing I can do, nothing in all the palaces of the imagination worse than what you do to each other…you dragged the world to the brink of the abyss. ''Well'' ''done''! And now im just gonna give it that final nudge…”
* EvilOldFolks: Has the form of a filthy old man. Later smartens up but is still old.
* FantasticRacism: Seems to dislike werewolves in particular. although he doesn't seem to like any of the supernatural beings he ended up creating.
** He's also a racist by Human standards, making racist remarks towards Mexicans in the first episode.
** Although by his [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech speech]] in the last episode, he's disgusted by ''all'' Humans!
* FauxAffablyEvil: He can act charming and kind when he wants to, but make no mistake, it's for his own benefit. He wants to destroy mankind after all.
* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: We learn in the first episode of season 5 that he's the Devil in human form.
* FrenchJerk: In a manner of speaking, since his host is apparently French.
* HellOnEarth: His plan. Europe gets completely wiped out (Britain first), Russia and everything east becomes ridden with plague, Africa becomes a land of famine, and the Americas suffer perpetual war.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Firmly believes this, pointing out that he was out of action for over a century, yet instead of making a utopia as God believed, humanity made the world even ''worse!''
* IHaveManyNames: He quotes this word for word and lists some of them to Rook once he reveals his true identity.
* {{Immortality}}
** TheAgeless:
* LivingShadow: In his true form
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Inverted. He's a pensioner in a grotty old cardigan with rotting teeth. Played straight later though when he's stronger, where he wears a nice suit and uses a cane. He can also act well-educated and articulate when he wants to, as shown with his interactions with Hal.
* ManipulativeBastard: He convinces Rook that chaos between Hal and Tom would encourage support for his department. This leads to [[spoiler: Rook using his surrogate daughter Natasha to seduce Tom and then feed Hal. Hatch then forces Natasha to commit suicide in the same room as Hal, driving the furious Tom into trying to kill Hal, thinking that he murdered her. This conflict empowers Hatch significantly.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: His natural form is a black smoky haze, he can possess people and has a range of psychic powers, and he feeds off the conflict between vampires and werewolves.
* PoisonousPerson: Kills flowers when he passes them.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Calls the main characters 'poofs' when [[spoiler: they reject his fantasy world]] and is first seen calling a young woman 'filthy whore' and other expletives. There's also some racist overtones in what he says, and refers to Bobby as 'Rin Tin Tin' because of his werewolf condition.
* PsychicAssistedSuicide: How he kills when weak.
* RealityWarper: Can create AlienGeometries and lets the men with sticks and rope walk freely in the world of men where they're not meant to be allowed to go. Can also manipulate ghosts physically.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When he commands the men with sticks and rope, or feeling particularly powerful.
* {{Revenge}}: He'd like nothing better than to rip Hal's heart out.
* [[spoiler: SchrodingersButterfly: It is implied The Devil sent all the heroes to a dream world, from which they woke and killed him...which it was further implied took place in ''another'' dream world, which corrected a crucial mistake in the first. "You should have put us together", indeed.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler: When he sees his current vessel of Hatch is about to be killed by a sniper bullet, he leaves the body, apparantly for good 'into the hearts of men'. Ultimately subverted later, though, as he is revealed to have just switched bodies.]]
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan
* {{Satan}}
* ThrowingOffTheDisability: When he absorbs enough conflict energy, he regains the ability to walk.


!!Ian Cram aka Crumb
A loser who gets turned into a vampire by Hal after getting into a car accident the latter accidentally causes.
* AlasPoorVillain: He really didn't want to feed on his sister and niece, he loved them. He was just too hungry to control himself.

* AxCrazy: Like most vampires.
* ButtMonkey: His work "friends" gave him zero respect.
* {{Chew Toy}}: Nothing good ever happens to him.
* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide]]
* {{Foil}}: To Hal. It's pointed out repeatedly that if Crumb doesn't change, he'll become a monster like Hal was.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: As he puts it himself, "The World's Worst Nightmare: the victim that gets superpowers".
* GigglingVillain
* [[spoiler: HeroicSuicide: Happily drinks werewolf blood to stop himself from becoming a monster again.]]
* {{Nerd}}
* WhosLaughingNow: His work colleagues really shouldn't have ignored and bullied him......

!!Janey Harris
Janey is Owen's new girlfriend. Also used to be friends with Annie when she was alive. There's probably a couple of tropes to do with her having an affair with Owen while Annie was alive.

* [[spoiler:DeadManWriting]]
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler: with Mitchell]]

* LastNameBasis: also OnlyOneName
* MillionToOneChance: [=McNair=], prior to becoming a werewolf, was chosen by Herrick to be the victim in a cage fight. [=McNair=] won out of sheer luck.
