[[quoteright:293:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/34fb21416d035530b120b9310dbb3c97.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Euthanized''

The main protagonist of the series. Cassie had [[DarkAndTroubledPast quite a hard life]]: [[DisappearedDad her father went missing]], her comrads bullied her at school, and eventually [[KnightTemplarParent her mother went insane and started brutally slaughtering her bullies in an effort to protect her]]. When Cassie found out, she called the authorities, leading to her mother's suicide. She was then sent to a foster family, only for her mother to rise as a slasher and start killing her new classmates again, eventually ending with Cassie forced to kill her a second time. At this point, the poor girl decided to fight back, and started wandering in the USA, [[SerialKillerKiller killing all the slashers she could find]].

* ActionGirl: Definitely. She ''is'' someone who regularly fight undead superpowered serial killers, after all.
* AntiHero: She is a good person, but her way to deal with her villains are... gruesome, to say the least. Though to be fair, she fight undead sociopathic serial killers, so [[AssholeVictim it's not like if they didn't have it coming]].
* BackFromTheDead: Just once, so she still has some catching up to do with Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}.
* BadassAdorable: A small, cute teenage girl who regularly dispatches undead serial killers of her own.
* BadassNormal: For most of the series, she has no power beside her wits, fighting skills and guts. She ''still'' manages to regularly slaughter slashers.
* BareYourMidriff: She rarely ever has it covered.
* BiTheWay: She had something of a relationship with Samhain, but [[spoiler: ends up riding into the sunset with Georgia at the end of the ongoing series.]]
* BlackBraAndPanties: All of her underwear is like this.
* BloodKnight: She's mentioned several times that she can barely conceive a life beyond hunting and killing monsters. [[spoiler:Even after she tried to start a normal life with Georgia, she ends up realizing she finds it dull and eventually returns to hunting monsters.]]
* BookDumb: She never actually finished school, though to be fair we're never told how she did in it anyway.
* BreakTheCutie: Oh, ''yes''. Just check the BrokenBird entry below to see. And that's without counting the times it happens over the course of the series, such as her torture by Doctor Gross.
* BrokenBird: Even ''before'' the horrible stuff happening to her over the course of her adventures, there is the whole thing about her being bullied as a kid and [[KnightTemplarParent her mother retaliating by cooking her comrads]]. The girl has one ''messed up'' backstory.
* CelibateHero: Played with; she willingly avoids relationships for most of the series because she knows she can't have a normal life, but it's pretty clear she wishes it was possible. [[spoiler:She ends up in relationships with Samhain and Georgia, but neither of these end well.]]
* CollaredByFashion: Has worn spiked collars in the past.
* TheCombatPragmatist: Has no problem relying on dirty tricks to eliminate Slashers. For example, when dealing with [[HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday holiday]] slashers, she and Vlad usually just find their resting place, and blow it up while they're still hibernating.
* DeadpanSnarker: She can be quite snarky about the things she ends up facing.
* DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel: An often employed tactic when luring out slashers. Almost backfired when used against Dr Gross.
* DisappearedDad: He already was missing before the whole incident with her mother.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: After the events of the last issue, Cassie hangs up her spurs to raise Sarah with Georgette. [[HappyEndingOverride Unfortunately, this doesn't last]].]]
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Part of her goth design.
* TheEeyore: Poor girl just ''can't'' catch a break.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Briefly became the new [[PhysicalGod Fantomah]].
* FinalGirl: Started out as one to her mother, who she killed after finding out she was killing her comrads. [[TookALevelInBadass Then decided to fight back.]]
%%* FingerlessGloves
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: Examples include chainsaws, power drills, and machetes.
* GoodIsNotNice: She ''is'' a good guy, yes. But she is also quite foul-mouthed, antisocial, and has serious issues.
* {{Goth}}: ''My First Maniac'' shows her friend Sarah dragged her along on a shopping spree, and Cassie apparently just liked the stuff she picked out enough to retain the style from then on.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Usually.
* HealingFactor: In more recent arcs, Cassie has gotten a good dose of [[spoiler: Samhain's healing factor]].
%%* HellBentForLeather
* TheHero: By virtue of being the main protagonist.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Cassie has always feared becoming a slasher, just like her mother. Samhain explicitly considers her just another kind of slasher who just happens to target other slashers.
* TheHunter: She is a girl who was motivated by a traumatic event in her past life into tracking down and killing Slashers. The only part she doesn't fill is being a member of a group dedicated to this.
* HurtingHero: Her life, to put it bluntly, sucks.
* IcyBlueEyes: Except when they're soft and in need of comfort.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: antisocial, foul-mouthed, and more than willing to rely on violence to reach her goal, but she is genuinely trying to protect innocents and cares a lot about people close to her.
* TheLadette: A teenage girl who swears, enjoys violence, and generally isn't a model of feminity.
* LoinCloth: One of her outfits is this on the covers.
* MiniDressOfPower: Loves these and wears them very often.
* MsFanservice: Good luck finding a pic of her where she isn't despicted in a sexy pose and/or wearing very light clothings.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Hack.
* PeekABangs: A common hairstyle for her.
* RememberWhenYouBlewUpASun: Is quite lax when mentioning things like dying, and killing her old cheerleading coach.
* SerialKillerKiller: The entire concept behind her character. A midnight radio show even nicknamed her "the SKK".
* SirSwearsALot: She has a foul mouth, to say the least.
* SociopathicHero: By her own admission, she is and considers herself "really fucked up", what with having a quite messed up backstory and spending her time travelling aroundd the USA looking for undead serial killers to gruesomely dispatch. She however does care about saving people and not hurting innocents, so she is not quite as bad as other examples of this trope.
** She actually uses her ability to inflict violence on others without suffering mental consequence as part of a ''pep talk'' in the ''Son of Samhain'' series.
* StakingTheLovedOne: Cassie is forced to kill her mother... ''twice''.
* StockingFiller: Loves her stockings.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Cassie Hack is a literal Suicide Girl in-universe and without.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:she's a hereditary potential slasher thanks to the Black Lamp taint, and she ends up slowly activating after being injected with Akakios's blood.]]
* VigilanteMan: One that happens to typically target slashers.
* WaifFu: Is a tiny girl who, nevertheless, kicks a lot of ass.
* WeaponOfChoice: BatterUp.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Often wears one of these in her role as MsFanservice.

[[folder: Vlad]]
[[quoteright:279:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2efceb0510862f46696fd1ef9ba9a4ff.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Euthanized''

A large, disfigured man who serves as Cassie's partner. As a child, Vlad was abandoned by his mother shortly after his birth, but quickly rescued and raised by a kindly butcher who raised him, teaching him his trade and educating him with comic books. After the Butcher's death, he begun leaving the deli for item, wearing a gas mask both to hide his disfigured face and to help him breath, since after being raised for years inside a deli his lungs had grown weak. This caused him to grow somewhat famous amongst the locals as "the Meatman". When he first met Cassie, she tried killing him, mistakingly believing he was the slasher she was then looking for, but eventually they realized the misunderstanding and teamed up to take care of the real slasher. Since then, Vlad has joined Cassie's hunt for slasher and assisted here.

* BadassLongcoat: His usual attire.
* BaldOfAwesome: It seems he can't grow hair.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Despite his appearance, he actually is a pretty nice person. But he is every bit as strong as his size would suggest, and gladly joins Cassie in killing Slashers.
* TheBigGuy: Tall, strong and the duo's muscle.
* TheComicallySerious: Much of the humor comes from how he takes the ridiculousness of their world in complete stride.
* CoolMask: His gaz mask. Notably, it does have a practical use- he needs it to breath due to his lungs not being used to the outside.
* CreepyGood: He basically looks like a slasher in the vein of Jason or Leatherface, but actually is a GentleGiant who only gets dangerous if he is ''really'' mad.
* DependingOnTheArtist: He's either gray, green, or brown.
* {{Determinator}}: Is every bit as determined as Jason.
* DoggedNiceGuy: When Cassie finally realises, the results are ugly.
* {{Expy}}: Basically is the pre-undead Jason Voorhees, if someone channeled his tendency to violence to a positive end.
* GentleGiant: Vlad is absolutely gigantic, but unless he gets mad, he really is a nice guy to get along with.
* TheGrotesque: Is deformed, albeit not quite as bad as everyone seems to think.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Played with; He definitely is more melee-oriented than Cassie, but she isn't limited to long range weapons herself.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Turns out to be from a family of demon-human hybrids.
* HandicappedBadass: Though he's a mountain of muscle and badassery, Vlad does suffer from pulmonary infections from time to time. It's part of the reason he wears the mask. [[spoiler:Towards the end of the comic he nearly dies when his bone condition goes into overdrive.]]
* TheLancer: Cassie's closest partner, and serves as a Foil to her.
* MacheteMayhem: Wields one of these as an {{Expy}} of Jason Voorhees.
* NoSocialSkills: Which is understandable, considering he was raised in a basement with little more than comic books.
* OlderSidekick: Cassie is a teenager, while he is at the very least an adult.
* WeaponOfChoice: Really big knives and cleavers.
* WhiteSheep: The only one of his family who is not AxCrazy.
* YouNoTakeCandle: Tends to have a somewhat limited vocabulary from his lack of social interaction.

[[folder: Lisa Elsten]]
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ce1be9f567a6e70f1daec723c80cf808.jpg]]
-> Debut: ''Euthanized''

A young veterinarian, Lisa Elsten used to work in a clinic along with Bobby Brunswick, a mentally-retarded but good-hearted part-time employee responsible for euthanizing of animals. Lisa's sympathy for Brunswick ended up causing her boyfriend Kyle to get jealous, which eventually led to Brunswick's death and revival as a slasher. This in turn led Lisa to meet with Cassie and Vlad, and she has been their ally since then.

* CoolBigSis: Can act like this towards Cassie, like in ''Double Feature''.
* FinalGirl: Could be considered this for Bobby Brunswick, though he never wanted to kill her.
* TheMedic: As much as a veterinarian can be. She frustratedly notes at one point that she's patched up more people than animals in the last six months.
* MissionControl: Communicates to Cassie through the internet.

[[quoteright:190:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c310943be1392739a038f194fff1d21d.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Land of Lost Toys''

* AsianAndNerdy: A DownplayedTrope example as he's a fairly normal guy with a few minor hobbies.
* BasementDweller: Initially. He changes when he starts dating Lisa.
* {{Geek}}: Very into computers and horror/
* HeroesWantRedheads: Lisa and Sheriff Callahan.
* MissionControl: Helps Cassie across the internet.
* NonActionGuy: Not as dangerous as the women in his life.
* SpikyHair: A pretty triumphant example thereof.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Pooch]]
[[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f77814ae701e6d8556e79aa1f525e16a.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Shout at the Devil''

A demonic dog spawned by the Neflords, Pooch originally acted as the pet of his progenitor's current agent, and first met Cassie and Georgia when he was left in charge of guarding them, telling them about his masters in exchange for being pet. When the two escaped Nef, Pooch made a feeble attempt to stop them, but was casually knocked aside. For God only knows what reason, the Neflords later decided to send him to Earth to hunt down and kill Cassie, a task he proved comically inept at. At the behest of Cassie, Pooch was collected by Chris and Lisa; since the two of them proved to be pretty nice, and the Neflords would be undoubtedly pissed at him for failing at his assignment, Pooch decided it was in his best interest to go native, proving his loyalty to his new friends by protecting them from a far more competent assassin eventually sent by his former masters.

* AnimalisticAbomination: A HellHound spawned by the [[EldritchAbomination Neflords.]]
* AnimalsHateHim: Animals sense Pooch's unnaturalness.
* TheComicallySerious: A demon reacting to being treated like a dog with great aplomb.
* EvilDetectingDog: Well, it senses the same kind of horror it is.
* HeelFaceTurn: It gradually comes to like its owners more than the NefLords.
* HellHound: A literal one.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: It's purely evil but enslaved to its owners. At least, at first.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: A sentient demon treated like a dog.
* {{Phlegmings}}: One of its qualities.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: It has a pair of these.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Goblin, a pug in the animal clinic's kennel. According to Pooch, Goblin ''hates'' him.
* TeamPet: Quite literally in fact.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Speaks in the third person. It's a demon thing.

[[folder: Delilah Hack, the Lunch Lady]]
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/079a16a71d5276bbfe801928669fe522.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Euthanized''

Cassie's mother, Delilah (or "Dee") was once a normal (but feisty) woman who met and fell in love with her future husband, Doctor Jack Hack, when it was discovered she had the potential to become a slasher. The two got married and tried to live a normal life with their daughter, but Jack's government connections ([[{{Mundanger}} and gambling problem]]) quashed those dreams, and Jack was eventually forced to abandon his family for their own protection. This caused Delilah's mental state to deteriorate rapidly, and after noticing the bullying her daughter was forced to deal with at school, decided that mommy should make it all better in the worst possible way; by butchering the bullies (and anyone else who so much as looked at Cassie funny) and using their remains as the "secret ingredient" in the food she served in her job as a lunch lady. When Cassie discovered what her mother was doing, she alerted the authorities and confronted Delilah with them; distraught by her daughter's betrayal, Delilah committed suicide by fatally scalding herself with a pot of boiling gravy in front of her daughter. But a mother's love is a hard thing to kill, and Delilah soon returned from the dead, tracked Cassie down to her new foster home, and picked up where she left off, slaughtering Cassie's classmates, though this spree was cut short when Cassie re-killed Dee by shooting her in the face a couple dozen times.

* AbusiveParents: Presumably became this as her mental state deteriorated, if a flashback in ''The Final Revenge of Evil Ernie'' is anything to go by.
* AxCrazy: Just read the other tropes and you should figure that out pretty quick.
* BackFromTheDead: In ''Cassie and Vlad meet the Re-Animator''.
* DeathByOriginStory: Played with. She ''did'' come back twice, but it didn't last. Interestingly enough, it's her coming back the first time that motivates Cassie into going after the Slashers.
* DrivenToSuicide: When cornered by police, she drowned herself in a big pot of boiling gravy.
* EvilChef: Her whole hat as a Slasher.
* EvilMatriarch: To Cassie. Albeit, she doesn't try to control her daughter, just protect her in a horrifying way.
* KnifeNut: Though she is fine with any kitchen instrument, really.
* KnightTemplarParent: Her attempt to "protect" her daughter from bullying consisted in brutally murdering any kid she felt was doing wrong to Cassie and serve them as food at her job.
* MamaBear: A ''very'' dark one. She loves Cassie, alive or dead, though.
* MyBelovedSmother: Possibly one of the creepiest case of this trope.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Hack.
* NightmareFuel: In-universe to Cassie; even after killing her, the memory of her mother still haunts her, and she has a confrontation with her in every single of her nightmares.
* SerialKiller: Killed a bunch of kids who teased Cassie Hack and that's before she came back from the dead.
* TokenMotivationalNemesis: She was the first slasher met by Cassie, and the one who motivated her into going on a slasher hunt. As a result, she died right at the beginning of Cassie's origin story. Though she still keeps haunting Cassie, both in her nightmare and by actually coming back again.

[[folder: Bobby Brunswick]]
[[quoteright:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/54c4061902f7cc9c5010de695e9fd3d3.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Euthanized''

Originally a midly retarded but sweet and naive man, was hired by veterinarian Lisa Elsten to euthanize the animals in her pet clinic. Lisa and him ended up getting close to each others, resulting in her boyfriend Kyle to become jealous, and he started bullying the poor man with the help of co-worker Todd. Eventually one of the pranks went too far when they trapt Brunkswick in the clinic's gas chamber, resulting in his death. Scared that this whole thing would sent them to jail, the two men buried his body (with the complicity of the sheriff, who was an old school friend) in the wood, in the same area he would bury the animals he euthanized. A year later, Brunswick rose as a slasher with the ability to control hordes of undead animals.

* AlliterativeName: '''B'''obby '''B'''runswick
* AntiVillain: Stands apart from most Slashers in the series in that he ''wasn't'' a psychopath in life, just a mildly retarded guy who happened to suffer a rather tragic death.
* BackFromTheDead: Well duh. He comes back again n ''Come Together''.
* BadassLongcoat: Wore one as a slasher.
* BaldOfEvil: Doesn't have much hair. Averted when he was alive.

* HulkSpeak: Isn't very good at talking.
* MalevolentMaskedMen: His little surgical mask.
* PsychopathicManchild: Due to being mentally challenged in real life.
* RaisingTheSteaks: He can bring animals back from the dead, though it's implied he may be able to do so with humans.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In his initial appearance, his motivation was to take revenge on those responsible for the prank where he was killed.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: In life, Bobby was a mentally challenged young man who euthanized animals a clinic -- he's one of the few slashers who wasn't a remotely bad guy before he died.[[/folder]]

[[folder: Laura Lochs]]

[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5e2bbe48ea454aed9d77cb86b1608aed.jpg]]
-> Debut: ''Girls Gone Dead''

A devoutly religious girl who snapped when she caught her long time boyfriend with a slut, our heroes first encountered Laura when she intended to turn a Florida Spring Break into a bloodbath with the help of Father Wrath, a slasher she had enthralled with BlackMagic. Despite later dying after some body-hopping mayhem caused [[{{Film/ChildsPlay}} a certain killer doll's]] amulet, her hate-filled spirit remains in limbo, obsessed with taking revenge on Cassie and Vlad, something she'll have to be creative about, considering her now fairly limited ability to interact with the world of the living.

* BandageBabe: In ''Vs. Chucky'', due to the severe burns she suffered at Cassie's hands.
* CatholicSchoolGirlsRule: At first before she became a BandageBabe.
* CloudCuckooLander: Has shades of this in ''Vs. Chucky'', where she attempts to get her (mindless) zombie minions to sing along and tries to "save" Cassie by murdering her friends in ways that reflect sins according to her belief system, [[InsaneTrollLogic even though they don't actually apply to the people she intends to kill]].
* DesignatedGirlFight: Has one of these but averted since Cassie has never shied away from throwdowns with men.
* DisproportionateRetribution: She was driven insane and attempted to massacre Spring Break due to her boyfriend cheating on her during the festivities.
* EvilFeelsGood: When she actually witnesses Father Wrath kill someone at her instruction, she is somewhat freaked, and starts questioning herself ("You don't think I'm crazy, do you?"); though she gets over it, outright stating shooting someone was surprisingly easy later.
* EvilVsEvil: In ''Vs. Chucky.'' Chucky is arguably worse but Laura threatens Cassie's loved ones.
* GrandTheftMe: Done to Vlad in ''Vs. Chucky'', and briefly to her sister in ''Foes and Fortunes''.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: She was eaten alive by her own ravenous zombie minions.
* HotWitch: A rather cute teenage girl who practices the Dark Arts.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Unlike most villains, she has been a regular human being for most of her appearances, but she rivals the Slashers when it comes to being a psychopath.
* {{Hypocrite}}: A Christian fundamentalist who uses BlackMagic and HollywoodVoodoo in the name of God.
* MalevolentMaskedMen: She wears what's left of Father Wrath's mask in ''Vs. Chucky''.
* TheManBehindTheMan: In ''Foes and Fortunes'', she manipulates her sister from beyond the grave in a plot to kill Cassie and Vlad.
* ManOnFire: At the end of ''Girls Gone Dead'', via candles and various alcohols.
* MotiveRant: Tends to very frequently deliver long speeches about how she is trying to accomplish the work of God.
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: In ''Vs. Chucky'', though as noted above, they turn on her.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Became something akin to one due to her usage of black magic.
* StrawmanPolitical: Of religious fundamentalists, obviously.
* ValleyGirl: She does talk the part.

[[quoteright:247:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/899697e23cdf807568d3137d9fd71c10.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Land of Lost Toys''

The son of a rich and fortunate family, Ashley was a sociopathic and peculiar child, overly possessive of his belongings, to the point he would react brutally to anyone else trying to play with his toys. When he ended up beating his own baby brother to death as a result, his parents ended up killing him by suffocating him in his sleep. He eventually rose as a slasher [[YourWorstNightmare capable of killing people in their sleep]], and haunted his parents' dreams until his father commited suicide and his mother had to be institutionalized. He then proceeded to go on a killing spree.

* CreepyChild: He's both a child, a monster, and a serial killer.
* DemonicPossession: Relied on this to come back after Cassie first defeated him.

* ItsAllAboutMe: His entire MO. His reason for... everything, really.
* KillerRabbit: While stuck in a teddy bear, and arguably the elderly Mrs. Joworsky's body.

* SealedEvilInATeddyBear: Literally at one point has his soul bound to one.

[[folder: Angela Cicero, the Acid Angel]]
[[quoteright:221:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/a1c9c27c7989d2d93af2fa077b51d597.jpg]]

-> Debut: ''Slice Hard Prelude''

A sexy (and she knows it) female slasher, Acid Angel was once Angela Cicero, mundane real estate agent by day and club-trotting party girl by night. Unfortunately, Angela's hard partying ways led to a heap of trouble when she got it on with her best friend's husband, driving said best friend to a BathSuicide. Overcome with grief, the guilty husband murdered Angela by replacing her insulin with hydrochloric acid, leading to an excruciating death. But, you can't keep a bad girl down, and Angela eventually came back from the dead as a slasher who uses her feminine wiles to ensnare men, then kill them via her arousal-activated acidic secretions.

* AlienBlood: Has acid for it.
* AllThereInTheManual: Her origin is revealed in supplementary material.
* BackFromTheDead: In ''Come Together'' she makes her first return.

* KnifeNut: In ''Slice Hard'' she loves using one of these.

* {{Mook}}: Acquires the ability to create them in ''Come Together''.
* MsFanservice: She is one of the few slasher to retain a completely human appearance, frequently dresses in underwears, swimsuits or skimpy outfits, [[TheVamp has a very seductive attitude]], and he whole power works on a DeusSexMachina.
* PoisonousPerson: Acid-based to be specific.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives an emasculating one to Vlad in ''Come Together''.
* StrawFeminist: She justifies killing men as avenging women.

* VillainsOutShopping: In ''Come Together'', in order to "recharge" to kill the captive Cassie and Vlad in a painful manner, she watches some trashy hotel porn:

-> Debut: ''Slice Hard''

A former Ms. America title holder, Emily Christie commited the mistake of posing nude for 'Girlie' Magazine, which resulted in her title being revoked. Afterwards, she entered the pharmaceutical industry and eventually became head of Ceutotech, Inc's research division. In an attempt to give themselves an edge, Ceutotech started kidnapping and experimenting on slashers, in an attempt to replicate their HealingFactor and use it for cosmetics. [[EvilIsNotAToy Predictably, things went wrong]], resulting in the five slasher they had captured escaping and Christie being mortally wounded by Acid Angel. In an attempt to save her life, she ended up injecting herself with a liquid chemical derived from slasher dna she had been working on. The chemical did save her life, but resulted in her transformation into a slasher, and she apparently died when the facility exploded. [[spoiler:In truth, she managed to survive the explosion, but ended up badly burnt in the process, forcing her to steal and wear other people's skins in order to maintain a human appearance. She would later rely on a ritual ceremony to ascend into a snake-like being called the Ouroboros.]]

-> Debut: ''Shout at the Devil''

Two big, floating tenctacly monsters that exist in a realm presumably named after them, their origin is vague, but speculation says they may have lived in the void that existed before God created the universe. While they appear to be content (for the most part) with lording over their little Hell Dimension, they are unable to create followers from nothing, and thus must rely on impregnating virgins (and it ''has'' to be virgins, for some reason) from other worlds, acquiring them through agents they imbue with powers in exchange for their services.

* AnythingThatMoves: As long as it's a virgin, at least.
* CombatTentacles: They use these in battle and have a lot of them.
* DimensionLord: They're the rulers of their tiny hell dimension.
* EldritchAbomination: Pretty much goes without saying. They're monstrous tentacle monsters from another reality who want virgins to reproduce with.
* FaceFullOfAlienWingWong: They can only breed with virgins of other races.
* MarsNeedsWomen: In order to spawn, they need to fatally impregnate virgins from alternate realities.
* PowerFloats: They live in the skies above their world.
* RainbowSpeak: Each one has different colored speech bubble font, which occasionally bleeds together.
* ShockAndAwe: They can create lightning blasts.
* SpeakInUnison: Combined with VoiceOfTheLegion. They sound like a guttural choir.
* SuddenlyVoiced: In they're debut, there's no indication given that they can talk (at least, physically) but in subsequent appearances, they're quite chatty.

[[folder: The Society of the Black Lamp]]
-> Debut: ''Closer''

A mysterious cult founded by Akakios and responsible for the existance of Slashers as a whole. The Society of Black Lamp believes humanity exists in two classes: one that is inherently superior both intellectually and morally, and one prone for sin and debauchery. Following that logic, they sees the Slasher as "Paladins" meant to eradicate the second class, thus preventing an Apocalypse.

* {{Cult}}: One which dates back to Ancient Greece and has spread throughout the world.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: They can ''raise the dead'' but use it to punish people who love sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

* ReligionOfEvil: The religion has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

* VillainousIncest: They don't like diluting the bloodline.[[/folder]]

The founder of the Black Lamps and the oldest slasher still active, he's been undead for about 2500 years. [[spoiler:At some point in the twentieth century, treacherous Black Lamp underlings deposed him and magically destroyed his memories, renaming him "Samhain" and using him as the Society's top assassin.

* WalkingSpoiler: There's a reason why there's so much spoiler code here.
