[[folder:Main Cast]]

!!Caliban "Cal" Leandros

The half-human/half-Auphe son of Sophia Leandros, Cal was bred by the Auphe for the purpose of ending the world. Nineteen when the series starts, Cal has spent four years of his life running from his heritage. Sarcastic, sullen, and prone to angsting, Cal alternates between taking nothing seriously, and sinking into full-on depression.
* AntiAntiChrist: Cal has no interest in ending the world, thanks all the same.
* BashBrothers: With Niko, and eventually, Robin.
* BerserkButton: Hurting Niko, or Robin, or George, or any of the other people he actually cares about.
* {{BFG}}: Both his Desert Eagle and his .50 Caliber Magnum qualify as such.
* BlackSpeech: Slips into it when really, really angry.
* CantHaveSexEver: Not with anybody who can have children anyway. So far he's slept with a plant creature, and a werewolf whose reproductive organs are not in working order.
* CoolGun: A Desert Eagle with explosive rounds.
* DeadpanSnarker: All the time.
* {{Determinator}}: Powers through some truly horrendous injuries.
* TheDreaded: Monsters who recognise Cal's Auphe scent are scared to death of him.

* EmoTeen: Serious shades of this, especially in the first book.

* HalfHumanHybrid
* HeroicBSOD: In ''Moonshine'', after [[spoiler:Hob defeats and kidnaps Niko]]. Cal sinks into an icy, suicidal rage, planning to take the villain in question with them.

* {{Patricide}}: During his escape from Tumulus, Cal killed the Auphe who fathered him. It's one of the few things about his time there that he's sure about.
* ProperlyParanoid: Cal is suspicious of everybody's motives, sleeps and bathes with a knife on him, and is ready for fight or flight at the drop of a pin. He's right more often then he's wrong.
* SiblingTeam: With Niko.
* SiblingYinYang: With Niko. Cal's the irresponsible, angry, angsty one, Niko the calm, workaholic, responsible one.
* SonOfAWhore: The nicest way to describe their mother.
* StarCrossedLovers: With Georgina. She won't look into the future to see if they will have Auphe children, and Cal's not staying with her unless she does.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Has a penchant for doing this once he gets angry, at one point absolutely dismembering a bodach that had killed a little girl.
* TrueCompanions: With Niko, Robin and Promise
* UnstoppableRage: An angry Cal is a scary Cal. Niko comments that Cal has the sin of {{wrath}} all to himself.

!!Niko Leandros

* WillNotTellALie: Having grown up with ConsummateLiar Sophia for a mother, Niko will not, under any circumstances, lie.
* TheWorfEffect: [[spoiler:Once. Hob's manhandling of Niko shows that he is nobody to be trifled with.]]

!!Robin Goodfellow

A puck who works as a used car salesman, Robin is a several million year old being, who, desperate for companionship, has become one of the boys' few genuine friends. Enthusiastically pansexual, and the original party animal, he provides a lot of the comic relief in the series.
* AnimalMotifs: A fox
* AnythingThatMoves: Women, men, various supernatural beings, you name it, Robin has tried to screw it.
* TheAlcoholic: Though with an absolutely legendary tolerance.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Usually acts like a complete hedonist who's only interested in getting into other entities' pants, skirts, fur, scales, whatever. But piss him off, [[spoiler: and he's absolutely deadly. To put it into perspective, he has no trouble beating ''Niko''. As it turns out, in many of their past lives, Robin was the one who trained Niko (and tried to train Cal) in combat.]]

* MrViceGuy: {{Lust}} and {{Pride}}.
* {{Omniglot}}: Robin speaks -- according to his own claim -- ''all'' the languages in existence, and probably those that are extinct, too. That is justified because he's not human and is old enough to remember the dinosaurs. Basically, he was around before language was invented and picked them up as they came around.

* TimeAbyss: Robin remembers the dinosaurs. He hasn't changed at all in that time, and will go on forever, barring an untimely death.

* FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampires: Promise is harmless to normals, gives to charity, and has helped take out numerous monsters that did prey on the human community.
* ImmuneToBullets: Promise can more or less shrug off bullets. Unless you take her through the heart or the brain, you are wasting ammunition.

[[folder:Introduced in ''Nightlife'']]

!!The Auphe

The inspiration for the myths about elves, the Auphe are an entire race of psychotic thrill killers, sadists, and certifiable lunatics. Virtually indistinguishable from one another, the Auphe were the most feared of all monsters during the days before the rise of humanity, and still make most creatures who are aware of them twitchy.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: An entire species of mass murderers, torturers, and predators, the Auphe seem to have barbarism encoded in their genetics.

* RedEyesTakeWarning
* UltimateEvil: How other creatures, even killers like Cerberus, regard them.
* VillainTeleportation: The ability to create gates is an Auphe one.

The last male banshee, Darkling is, in Cal's words, a nightmare for hire. Willing to do anything if the pay is right, Darkling is an integral part of the Auphe's plans for Cal and the world. [[spoiler:Halfway through ''Nightlife'' he bodyjacks Cal as part of the Auphe plot to exterminate humanity]].
* DeadpanSnarker
* DemonicPossession: Does it to [[spoiler:Cal, taking over as narrator for most of the book.]]
* DragonInChief: The Auphe may be in charge, but it is Darkling who secures Cal for them, Darkling who opens the gate to the past, Darkling who does his utmost to eliminate Niko, Robin, and Promise, and Darkling whose moves actually drive most of the plot.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Repeatedly shocked by the actions taken by Niko, Promise, and Robin.
* FirstPersonSmartass: [[spoiler:As the narrator]]

* AndIMustScream: Traps his victims within his body and feeds on their minds forver.
* BloodKnight
* TimeAbyss

!!Sophia Leandros

Cal and Niko's mother, a Roma of the Vayash clan who ran away when she was a teenager and spent the rest of her days travelling, telling fortunes and conning customers and drinking. A lot. She was paid by the Auphe to carry Cal, but was horrified when he was born and spent his childhood calling him a monster. She burns to death when the Auphe show up to steal Cal back.
* AbusiveParents: Oh, so much. She messed Cal and Niko up for the rest of their lives.
* AlcoholicParent: Sophia would go as far as throwing empty bottles at Cal when he was a kid and ranting at him about how much of a monster he is, even though it was ''her'' who sold her... reproductive ability to an Auphe for a pot of gold, which she quickly spent on more alcohol. At least on one occasion she also stole Niko's college money. While she burned to death prior to ''Nightlife'', the experience of growing up with Sophia as a mother teaches even resident bad boy Cal to never drink more than one beer as he believes to have inherited his mother's penchant for alcoholism.

[[folder:Introduced in ''Moonshine'']]


A member of Cerberus' crew, Flay is Caleb's agent within the Kin, and acts as Cal's aide during his infiltration of Cerberus' organisation. Albino, and barely able to speak, Flay is nevertheless far smarter, and far more capable, then his own poor self-esteem lets him believe.
* EvilAlbino: Set up this way. He turns out to be a lot more sympathetic then you'd expect.
* HiddenDepths: He's far smarter, and much less evil, then initial apperances would suggest.
* IHaveYourWife: Informs Cal that Caleb has George. [[spoiler:It turns out that Caleb is holding his son, Slay, as a hostage]]

A pair of single-minded Siamese twins who act as a Kin Alpha, Cerberus is the target of Cal and Niko's mission in the novel.

* CanisMajor: An enormous wolf, with two heads. Fully transformed, Cerberus is the size of a Buick.

* SiameseTwins
* SingleMindedTwins: Cerberus thinks of himself as one being.


-->''"I'm the original reason there is no honour among thieves."''

One of Robin's fellow pucks, and the oldest member of the species alive today, he operates a bar frequented by the Kin. [[spoiler:He's the mastermind behind the events of the book]]. Utterly cold and without scruples, and void of all emotions but want, this particular Pan will gut you for a penny. He's the only puck Cal meets who instantly registers on his monster radar.
* AndShowItToYou: [[spoiler:Rips out Caleb's heart and makes him eat it.]]
* AnythingThatMoves: Inverted. Hob only masturbates because nobody else is worthy of him.

* TheBigBad: [[spoiler:Of ''Moonshine'']]

* CreepyMonotone: If Cal's description of his dead, flat voice is any indicator.
* TheDreaded: Promise and Robin just about have a heart attack when they realise who he is.
* EvilTwin: To Robin. "It was Goodfellow's voice, only arctic and empty. Goodfellow's face, although set with a supercilious sneer. His eyes lacking even the sliver of a soul."

* FamedInStory: Infamous in-story to be precise.

* GrievousHarmWithABody: [[spoiler:Plans to beat George to death with Cal's corpse.]]
* HeroKiller: Has this reputation. [[spoiler:More then lives up to it.]]

* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:To Caleb, the novel's apparent villain]]
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Better dressed then even Robin.

* PerpetualFrowner: Smiles once in the entire novel.

* SingleTargetSexuality: Himself.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Does it to Caleb]]

[[folder:Introduced in ''Madhouse'']]

* OneManArmy: If his ability to take on Niko, Cal, Promise, and Robin all at once is any indicator.

* SinisterScythe: His WeaponOfChoice
* SlasherSmile: Fixated on his face. It mimics the look of his scythe.

[[folder:Introduced in ''Roadkill'']]


[[folder:Introduced in ''Blackout'']]


[[folder:Introduced in ''Doubletake'']]


A human/Auphe hybrid with dreams of repopulating the species, and making hybrids like himself, rather then humanity, the fastest breeding race on the planet.

** Sidle messed up. Grimm managed to gate away from the hellhole he was in, but Sidle didn't know that's exactly what the Auphe wanted. He told them Grimm had died rather than admit he let one of his prisoners escape, and why would they care about that? They didn't use him or seek him out because they didn't know he existed.
* SinisterShades: Used to hide his tell-tale red eyes.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart

!!Emilian Kalakos
