An archmage and explorer who's Gina's father.

* TheArchmage:
* BadassGrandpa:
* PapaWolf: He comes to Britanny's rescue [[spoiler: when she's being assaulted by Thabian and Jetta]].
* SpyCatsuit: The standard costume for aura mages like Theo is a form-fitting unitard. He still fills his out rather well.

!! Julia Diggers
A barbarian warrior from the world of Jade. She met Theodore after his well-meaning assistance cost her a tournament win. She made him help her raid a dungeon to make up for it, and the rest is history.

* ActionMom
** BadassGrandma
* MissingMom: For the first volume or so, then they came and explained ''why''.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Julia already [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave looked good for her age]], then she accidentally refined her master's "Renewing Breath" technique and shaved thirty years off. Granted, she eventually had to give up that extra boost, but she still looks good for her age.

Britanny and Stryyp's daughter.

* ChildProdigy:
* {{Nanomachines}}: Thanks to her father's artifacts.

[[folder:Team Gold Digger]]
!! Dao
A Djinn whom Gina recovered. A Djinn tends to take on characteristics of the people most liked by the person ''s/he'' likes, so he eventually went from six-armed, bronze, bald and bearded to a blend of the males who get the most positive reactions from Gina. Currently back together with his ex-wife.

!! Genn
A Rakshasa the Diggers sisters found in an ancient tomb. Currently married to Seance.

* GenderBender:
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Kinda. Genn pretty much gives up her male transformations after falling in love with Seance.
* LifeDrinker: Actually, they drink {{Mana}}
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: Rakshasa in ''Gold Digger'' are gender-neutral [[{{Shapeshifting}} shapes-shifters]] who drink magic energy. However, they have to exhaust their "victim" physically first. They typically do this through combat or sex.
* SexierAlterEgo: They can shapeshift into male and female versions of their normal form, as well as disguising or mimicking individual people.

!! Madrid
Once she was the Djinn princess of Yl'Daljim. She wanted to have the power Yl'Daljim magic sun, but in her attempts to seize it she released invaders that enslaved the Djinn. She was in a temple in India until Fauntleroy stole her from the said temple. She then came into Gina's possession where it is revealed that Genn is her Son/Daughter. She then asks Genn to make her body genetically similar to Gina's so she can take Gina's place so that she can go to Yl'Daljim. In the final battle between Gina and Madrid, Gina tricks Madrid into being trapped on a base on the moon. She eventually made it down to earth, where her backstabbing ways promptly got her into trouble again. Several weeks of humiliation at the claws of some cruel dragons finally broke her spirit, driving Madrid to turn her life around. She normally explores the Astral Rifts with Dao and Subtracto.

* BreakTheHaughty
* EvilTwin: Pretty much became this for Gina.
* FutureBadass: By all evidence, BigGood Ancient Gina is actually a Madrid's future self, not Gina's.
* HeelFaceTurn
* OurGeniesAreDifferent: Madrid' original form had a shell-like covering over her head down over where her eyes would be. Her actual eyes were on her abdomen.
* [[ThatManIsDead That Woman Is Dead]]: feels her old self is dead, though some of her old personality remains.

!! Seance
An aura mage and student of Theodore Diggers. Currently married to Genn.

* {{Bishonen}}
* DirtyMindReading: When first introduced, he had trouble controlling his ability to read the surface thoughts of others. Both Gina and Genn's imaginations were rather "inspired", much to their embarrassment...
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: "Seance" is a title, not his birth name.
* [[KungFuWizard Kung Fu Mage]]: Had himself turned into one, but then found out the change wasn't as permanent, nor as desirable, as he thought.

An elite group of warriors who help keep the peace on the magical realm of Jade. Many members of the Northern Edge-Guard are werecats.

* Captain Ersatz: Most of the original members of the guard were pretty much based on the ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}}''. Indeed, their names are anagrams.

The leader of the Edge-Guard.
* TheLeader
* YinYangBomb: has two swords representing opposite principles, Seraphim for positive energy and [[BlackSwordsAreBetter Necro]] for negative.

* HandsomeLech
* TheLancer
** Which is a bit of HilariousInHindsight, because seeing as this is what Tygra became in [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011 the remake.]]

!!Garfield "Gar" Silvear
A werejaguar who was trained by Julia Diggers.

* CanNotSpitItOut: He could never voice his feelings for Brittany, until it was too late.
* [[spoiler: DisneyDeath]]
* TheLancer

!!Sheila Silvear
Garfield's younger sister and Raphael's current superior.
* GlassCannon: Her human form has all the power (and [[MostCommonSuperpower body]]), but her hybrid form has the regeneration and invulnerability. She stays in her hybrid form to avoid being one.
* HotAmazon: Unlike most werebeasts, most of Sheila's size and power is in her ''Human'' form.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Her hybrid form looks like a teenager.
* TheChick
* Tsundere: She has a thing for Tirge, but can't stand his womanizing ways.

* TheBigGuy
* GeniusBruiser
* TheSmartGuy

A were-cheetah who just happened to show up the day of Brittany's wedding. Was eventually revealed to be a golem created by a romantic rival, who tried to destroy him for failing to break up Brit and her fiancÚ. Brianna was able to save a piece that contained his "soul" and with some help, eventually gave him a real body. He currently serves in the Northern Edge Guard.
* SixthRanger:

An Amazon Breeder who was taken with Raphiel. Unfortunately, her attempts to get into his pants eventually resulted into her being cursed.
* ActionMom: Breeders are fertile Amazons whose primary duty is to seek out suitable mates and birth new members of the tribe. Before/between/after that, they're as tough as ''any'' Amazon.
** Sadly, a later GD issue revealed that uncursing Sil has also rendered her sterile.
* BalefulPolymorph: Got turned into a Were-Wabbit.
* [[KillerRabbit Killer Wabbit]]: Wabbits look like cute little bunnies with long tails, but they're carnivorous, have {{Absurdly Sharp Blade}}s on the end of those tails, and can infect people like a were-creature and turn ''them'' into Wabbits.
* PettingZooPeople: When we see Sil and Raph again, she's at least regained a humanoid (Wabbit-based) form, but apparently at the cost of her fertility.
* TeamPet:

* SixthRanger

[[folder:Penny's Crew]]
!!Penelope "Penny" Koss (''nee'' Pincer)
A fellow explorer and former rival to Gina. (They swapped many a wedgie in the early days of the comic.)

* HollywoodNerd:
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: She's almost as bad as Gina, which is probably one of the reasons for their earlier rivalry. (She's better in medicine, chemistry and ballistics.)
* SassyBlackWoman
* StraightArrow: Penny's WeaponOfChoice is the crossbow. They're actually MagneticWeapons (that fire crossbow bolts), but the bow parts are all fully functional as a redundancy.

!!Kevin "Ace" Koss
A pilot for hire who is a close friend (and frequent transport) of Gina's, as well as Penny's new husband. Considered to be one of the best pilots on Earth.

* AcePilot: Has been known to give jet fighters a run for their money in a ''cargo plane''.
* InsistentTerminology: Very much prefers to be called [[VideoGame/SpaceAce "Ace"]] instead of his real name.
* OnlySaneMan


A bio-engineered harpy unleashed by the villain Alfred Peachbody as a mindless attack beast. After Peachbody's defeat, she started to develop her own will and personality, and was taken in by Penny as a bodyguard (much like Brit' is to Gina).

* CheerfulChild: Although this may fade, as she's begun entering the equivalent of early adolescence.
* LightningBruiser: According to Penny, she is stronger and maybe even ''faster'' then Britanny. It's mostly her attitude and innocence that hold her back.
* WingedHumanoid: She looks mostly human, except the yellow, feathered skin, wings, and talons for hands/feet.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Despite her adult body, Charlotte has only been in existence as a sapient being for a few years, and has the mentality of a kid.

[[folder:Other Allies]]
!!The Vaultron Force

-->See Villains

!!Lydia Iceron [=McKraken=]
A blonde, waifish were-rat girl with a very headstrong attitude, best known for unleashing streams of profanity when under stress (or just when speaking in general). She is the ''de facto'' leader of of the "Mall Rats" and has proven herself to be effective, though at times she can be more bossy than necessary. In the ''Throne of Shadows'' special mini-series, Lydia also shows that she'd rather her friends hate her than see them die. [[spoiler:She is later revealed to be the daughter of Gothwrain and Sherisha.]]

* ClusterFBomb
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: At times she shows willingness to sacrifice herself for her friends' safety.

!!Romeo Ellis

A blue-haired were-rat, Romeo is the only male of the group and seemingly the lowest on the totem pole. (In fact, he's just as good a fighter and assassin as his two friends/lovers; he's simply more willing to take their punishment for the sake of group harmony.) He is overly dramatic in a quasi-Shakespearean manner. While Lydia is the best combat leader, Romeo could be seen as the group's emotional anchor, ever the demonstrative and cautious individual.

* HollywoodHacking
* WarriorPoet: Has shades of this.

!!Moisha Rich
TheChick of the Mall Rats, a purple-haired were-rat. She is best known for her very large chest, having some of the most generous proportions in the comic. She speaks in ValleyGirl and acts bored in most circumstances. Chosen to be one of Lydia's friends from birth.
* TheDitz
* ValleyGirl: So very, very, very much!

The BigBad of the series. Originally a iron dragon who tyrannized dragon society with the Time Raft, he was sent hurtling through time and space by Gina when he tried to force her to fix the device. He was pulled out by Ancient Gina as a pawn in her plan to save the universe. He is currently battling her to get full control of the Infinity Engine, a device the two are building that allows control of reality.
* BigBad
* BreakoutVillain
* CardCarryingVillain
* ChaoticEvil
* TheDogBitesBack: Ancient Gina hoped that the fear of her would keep Dreadwing in line, however Dreadwing knows that Ancient Gina needs him alive and powerful enough to her her finish the Infinity Engine, so he openly defies whats she wants him to do whenever the opportunity arises.
* TheDreaded
* MoralEventHorizon: Somewhere between murdering his best friend Phyrogoth and raping his former life
* TheSociopath
* StrippedToTheBone: How it seemed he was defeated, but it turned out to be inverted.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: After Peachbody fused with him, he eventually took over their body and forced him out.
** Or forcing dragons to ritually ''mutilate'' their own mates as a show of loyalty... On pain of murdering their entire clutches of hatchlings.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* PragmaticVillainy: While Dreadwing would rather just [[ChaoticEvil murder and torture everyone]] to get what he wants, the situation he's in requires alliances and subtlety.
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Wanting to remove any sort of love T'mat had for him, he tortured her and finally raped her. He hoped to impregnate her, so she would be reminded of him every time she looked at their child. While T'mat loathes Dreadwing to no end, she holds no animosity towards her daughter.
* TheSociopath
* YourSizeMayVary: His demi-dragon for can be anywhere slightly larger than his human form slightly smaller than Debra, the largest dragon.

!!Gothwrain [[spoiler:Iceron]]
[[spoiler:Once he was the creator of the the werewolves and other lycanthropic races. But when his favorite slave, Sherisha, wanted freedom for her people, Iceron had her punished. Sherisha then killed him, but he got better. In return, Iceron then created the were-cats to hunt down the were-rats. When he discovered one breed, the were-cheetahs, could catch rats faster than any of the other types, he gave them an ability called the "Doom Gaze" that could freeze were-rats and shock them out of their hybrid forms. However, Iceron was unaware that Sherisha had infected him with lycanthropy, which didn't kick in until ''after'' he finished his project, meaning he suddenly became a target of his own creation.]] As a were-rat, Gothwrain sought the destruction of the were-cheetah clan and nearly succeeded, but Theodore Diggers intervened, saving the last one.
* BadassGrandpa
* CameBackWrong
* CameBackStrong
* DemotedToDragon
* EvilOldFolks
* FauxAffablyEvil
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He created were-people and was killed by his favorite were-rat after he began to abuse his creations. He had charmed himself to come back to life and upgraded were-cats to kill were-rats, especially were-cheetahs, but the lycanthrophy he was unknowingly inflicted with turned him into a were-rat,not only making him a target of the were-cheetahs but also a slave of Sherisha and thanks to the "ageless shell" spell, the only way to gain control back is to kill himself.
* Really700YearsOld: Thanks to the ageless shell, he and Sherisha's bodies only age a season every 20 years. He later made the two of them even younger with a youth spell.
* StayingAlive
* StealthMentor: His harsh training on Lydia was to prepare her to rule Dark Home.

Sherisha, the near-immortal leader of the were-rat clan and co-founder of a giant criminal empire.

In current day, Julia and G'nolga was able defeat him but Dreadwing freed him in to gain his assistance in his conquest of Jade Realm.
* AbusiveParent: When Julia had him chained up, his own daughter was so scared of him she would only bring him once or twice a week.
* DemotedtoDragon
* TheDreaded
* EvilOverlord
* ThePowerofHate: Serpentus has a good reason to make everyone, even his own people, hate him. His power comes from literally ripping hate out of a person's aura and forging it into a weapon. So the more people hate him, the more powerful they become.
* PragmaticVillainy
* ReminiscingAboutYourVictims: Remembers G'nolga well enough to remember when he killed her father.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Serpentus was originally supposed to fight Rhoaton instead of Dreadwing.

The former William Justice of the Wonder Friends. After his parents were killed battling a super villain, he took up a new name and became a villain himself.
* AlasPoorVillain
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He originally rescued Array because of the horrible injustice of her captivity, she was constantly by his side as he became a more and more dangerous villain, and eventually what they had paved the way for his redemption.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Went from being a gang leader appearing as the ArcVillain of a two issue storyline to almost gaining the power to conquer Jade Realm and died as a major character.
* FaceHeelTurn / HeelFaceTurn: He started out as a superhero like the rest of his family, went bad when he became determined to escape the fate of his forebears, then proved he was a hero all along by making the ultimate sacrifice.
* HeroicSacrifice: The entire reason Tirant became a super villain was because after his parents died, he learned that every member of his family since the 1920s died in the name of justice and that everyone expected him to do be willing to do the same.
** He would later give his life in order to save Array and their allies from T'mat. Array is currently being blackmailed into working for Dreadwing with the promise of bringing Tirant back to life.
* Rescue Romance: With Array.
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: In order to get Crush to work for him he threatened her family and intended to do the same towards Avenger.

* IdentityAmnesia: [[spoiler: Array is one of the Enigmas Merlin created to give magic to dragons and allow them to rise up against their oppressive creators. At some point she lost her memories and was captured by Sherisha.]]
* JustEatGilligan: Summoner is working for the sociopathic Dreadwing because he claims to be the only person skilled in draconic magic who's willing to help her. Summoner is capable of creating countless magends, all of whom are masters at whatever skill or ability they're created for. Nothing's stopping her from just creating a draconic magend to revive Tirant. [[spoiler: Especially considering that she one of the Enigma's who gave dragons magic in the first place.
* MesACrowd: Everytime Array summons a new magend, it continues to exist in her mind, allowing her to summon again it whenever it's needed. There's currently over hundred magends in Array's head, all somehow working in sync with each other.
* Phlebotinum Rebel
* Rescue Romance: Sherisha when found the amnesiac Summoner, she proceeded to spend years tearing off her body parts in the hope of creating her own magends and since politics were on here side, no hero could stop her. Luckily, Tirant came across her while trying to rob Sherisha's lab and rescued her. They've been in love ever since.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The reason Sherisha was allowed to continue with her experiments on Array was because Array is technically not human and therefore has no rights.
