Here's a list of characters from the WebComic ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}''.

It's an ongoing story about an [[GenderBending young man who woke as a woman]], except the plot is treated with much more emotional depth and serious character consideration than is the norm.

If you haven't read the comic first, [[http://www.misfile.com/?page=1 there you go]].

!Humans

[[folder: Ash Upton]]

The girl who was a boy.

!!Associated tropes:
* AttractiveBentGender: In full effect, to Ash's constant chagrin. In his/"her" own words, "What I wouldn't have given to be a flat chested no-looker that no one noticed." Not that his developed female body is that surprising given he inherits it from his mother, a former lingerie model.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Ash's father Dr. Edward Upton is a gynecologist who "never forgets a vagina" (and isn't at all shy about talking about them--see UltimateJobSecurity below) while Ash's mom Marie is a former lingerie model who has appeared in her fair share of racy catalogs. Ash notes that trying on bras would be awkward enough even if there wasn't a [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=601 large poster of his topless mother hanging in the fitting room.]]
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Played with: Ash relies on DontThinkFeel for his driving techniques, but Ash's ''racing'' technique is to constantly analyze the situation until he finds an advantage he can capitalize on. Ironically, his reflexive driving skills leave his mind free to to concentrate on the race itself.
* BadassDriver
* BecomingTheMask: Ash fears that pretending to be a girl all the time will result in becoming one in mind as well as body. Ash has rather feminine body language and reactions, although he doesn't notice unless it goes over the top (like the swooning incident).
* ButchLesbian: Would come off as this, due to his sexual preferences not changing in the misfile... if people knew that Ash wasn't straight, that is. To most people, "she" is simply extremely tomboyish (though there are some who correctly suspect that Ash doesn't like guys, they haven't been able to prove it yet).
* ButtMonkey: Ash. So far he's been changed into a girl, shanghaied into several races he'd rather not take part in (often where the odds were artificially inflated against him), and gone through a whole lot of emotional hurt without being able to do much about it. Ash was also threatened none-too-subtly with rape by two men. [[spoiler: And left Little Harry without a diaper for a little too long.]]
* CatapultNightmare: On occasion. The latest one seemingly includes some kind of pregnancy body horror, just going by Ash's body language. [[spoiler: The dream turns out to be equal parts hilarious and horrific.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* DespairEventHorizon: Ash reveals to Emily that this has been his mindset from day 1. Every time he manages to get his head up for air, something or someone comes along and kicks him down again. He has come to believe that "hope" is just as much a curse as everything else that came out of Pandora's Box, and catching it wasn't a good thing.
* DudeLooksLikeALady[=/=]BoyishShortHair: Had the same haircut as a boy.
* FieryRedhead: Has quite a big temper; as Rumsiel states, "Just because she needs you doesn't mean she won't kill you in a fit of rage."
* GreenEyes
* GoodAngelBadAngel
* GoodParents: Emily comments that Ash would make a good father. [[HeroicSelfdeprecation Ash doesn't believe it.]] Further, Ash's parental instincts with Little Harry are truly impressive.
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: According to Emily, who actually has had sex with Ash, and to Missi's "erotic dreams," Ash is ''very'' good in bed.
* HatesBeingTouched: Due to major body disphoria. It's so bad, Ash thinks a ''massage'' is stressful. in fact, a massage at a beauty salon triggered a FreakOut. Come December 22, 2015, and Ash's phobia has reached levels usually indicative of long-term abuse.
* IfItsYouItsOk: There are only two people who can touch Ash on a regular basis without being a trigger, Emily, and to a lesser extent Missi.
* JediMindTrick: When Dr. Upton catches Ash reading a "How to Take Care Of Your Baby" book, Ash channels Obi-wan Kenobi.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Ash can be brash and judgemental, hot-tempered and at times impulsive; but he's also a genuinely well-meaning person with a strong conscience, cares deeply about his family and friends, and despite his bull-headedness carries a depth of empathy and a strong moral code. In other words, just your average guy caught in extenuating circumstances but trying to make the best of them.
* MenDontCry: Firmly believes this, along with a lot of other masculine stereotypes, and is distressed when he starts crying because he thinks it means he's becoming accustomed to his new sex.
* MortonsFork: Ash's entire life is this. Either the Misfile gets fixed and he loses out on Emily, his mother, the monster XR, the relationship with his father becomes cold and distant, Kate... etc. On the other, Ash keeps all of that, but gets stuck with a body that just does not fit, and loses out on his dream being a loving father, winds up facing discrimination against female race drivers both positive and negative, [[RapeAsDrama and all the horrors that being too attractive and female brings.]] Either way, Ash loses something big and precious.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Convinces Rumisiel to heal a guy with a fatal heart condition. Not only does the recipient chew him out for it, but the guy's girlfriend slaps him. Before that, Ash takes Missi to a family diner to prove she's not a ReplacementGoldfish and gets ''accosted'' by two men waiting for them in the parking lot next to Ash's car.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: Why he broke up with Missy.
* OfficialCouple: With Emily. There are strong hints that were it not for the Misfile, he'd be this with Missi Fuller instead.
* RealMenWearPink: He's much better at household chores than he lets on, or believes about himself. Although not a SupremeChef, he's a decent enough cook that he can modify recipes to compensate for deficiencies in store bought ingredients.
* RedHeadedHero: Though it's more orange than red.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Though Ash isn't thrilled about the prospects.
* ShowerOfAngst: Upon learning that while Rummi's exile is not permanent, thanks to Ash's incredible efforts, it's still going to be 72 years before he can go back and ''try'' to fix the Misfile. Ash turns this into FullFrontalAssault, with rather unusual SceneryCensor on Emily when she comes into the bathroom to try to cheer him up.
* {{Tomboy}}: Given that Ash is a gender bended boy, he dresses accordingly. But sometimes he is put into [[DraggedIntoDrag drag]].
* {{Transsexual}}: Ash acts more like a real transgender teenager than most GenderBender {{webcomic}} protagonists. Emily even suggests gender reassignment surgery as an option at one point. The possibility was addressed in Ask Ash, where he is worried that girl!Ash getting gender reassignment surgery prior to Rumisiel fixing everything would result in him retroactively getting gender reassignment surgery after the mistake is corrected. Not to mention F-to-M surgery is pretty damn crappy at this point in time.
* TroubledButCute: To a degree, given the MissingMom and emotionally distant dad (and of course the CosmicRetcon...)
* {{Tsundere}}: Mix of A and B, though more often A since it's not common to see Ash become mushy and sweet.
* UnderstandingBoyfriend: Very much so. From both of the significant women in his life, Emily Mc Arthur, and Missi Fuller, he's stated to be sweet, sensitive, and very, very observant.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Ash is scared of babies, or more specifically ''Kate's'' baby, Harry.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: Part of his preferred swimwear, as seen in book 5.
* WouldNotHitAGirl: Minor BSOD when Ash punches a girl in the face, after she hit him twice, something he would have never done prior to the misfile and something Emily had already lampshaded as being tantamount to surrendering his manhood.
* WrenchWench: Girl-Ash was called "Crazy Car Girl". Harry calls Ash an excellent amateur mechanic.
* YaoiFangirl[=/=]YuriFan: Girl-Ash was apparently the prior, so logically Ash himself is the latter.
* YouOweMe: Combined with RageBreakingPoint and BerserkerTears. Rumi takes Ash saying that (s)he doesn't want to lose memories of life as f-Ash as Ash backing off on getting the misfile fixed. When Ash points out that this is not the case and actually wants the Misfile fixed, while keeping those precious memories, Rumi tries to go to the default of "the files don't work that way." Ash flips out completely stating [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "You! Owe! Me!"]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Emily [=McArthur=]]]

The girl who has to repeat two years of her life.

!!Associated tropes:
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Emily's basic M.O. throughout the comic but really comes to the fore in the arc centered around her first race where she reads up on psychology in order to rattle her opponent.
* BadassDriver: Gets her own moment when she beats Heather.
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling The Old Woman Out]]: After Ms. [=McArthur=] [[spoiler:goes to the hospital with heart palpitations due to her use of '''speed'''. Ms. [=McArthur=] claiming it's for the sake of being able to send Emily to college [[BerserkButton doesn't help her case]]]], as [[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2014-11-24 shown here.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: GirlPosse -> TheSmartGirl -> BadassBookworm
** Also shown in that she becomes more understanding of Ash, as she originally considered her problem to be worse.
* CleavageWindow: Several of her outfits include this.
* DeadManWalking: [[spoiler:Were it not for the misfile, she'd most likely have died when Molly's car got T-boned in chapter 6.]]
* DisappearedDad: Since she's the result of a TeenPregnancy.
* GirlPosse: Former member of Molly's posse.
* InsecureLoveInterest: Her lack of experience with normal romantic relationships and the fact that her and Ash's relationship is not a normal one make her pretty insecure. Becomes more obvious when Ash meets a guy that Emily thinks might be a better match for Ash than she is.
* OfficialCouple: With Ash.
%%* PurpleEyes
* SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining: She obsessively studied to get into Harvard, because of her EducationMama. This makes her extremely knowledgeable and very smart. There is, however, a problem with this: she has several social problems because she hasn't done any socializing in her past life.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Ash. Emily has repeatedly stated that she's not attracted to girls, just Ash. And Ash isn't a girl.
* YouAreGrounded: This incapacitates her for at least an entire chapter. [[CallingTheOldManOut This turns out to be the best way for her mother to lose Molly's respect.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: When colored, Emily's hair is depicted as a dark blue. It's unknown whether this is a dye job, her natural color via a small tweak to reality (as in Webcomic/ElGoonishShive), or simply a bit of ArtisticLicense.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Missi Fuller]]

A high school freshman who loves cars and Ash, not necessarily in that order.

!!Associated tropes:
* ACupAngst: At least until she gets the impression that [[PetitePride Ash prefers small breasts]].
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Sometimes, though as Kate said, she grows on you.
* BigEater: Doesn't do a thing for her chest, much to her chagrin.
* ChildProdigy: Even though she's not old enough to even go to Driver's Ed, she is an excellent amateur mechanic and an expert welder capable of making no-chafe chain shirts from discarded soda can pull-tabs.
* ChineseGirl: Albeit only by ancestry, since she's Tom's ''adopted'' sister. She also doesn't know martial arts.
* GenkiGirl: From time to time.
* GirlishPigtails: She has a couple of very short pigtails.
* GoodBadGirl: Missi is exceptionally curious about sex in general and Ash in particular. To wit, even though she does do her best to respect Ash's boundaries, she has tried to peek at Ash in the shower, being chagrined when Ash turns her down, gotten jealous when Emily got to see Ash nude first (Missi makes a fair distinction between nude and naked), and was palpably disappointed when the curtain fell closed (thanks to Rumisiel) on Emily's window just before Ash and Emily were about to have sex. Further, she has no compunction about openly discussing sex with Ash in public.
* GracefulLoser: She is surprisingly okay with missing out on being Ash's OfficialCouple. The fact that Ash doesn't play favorites, and still dotes on her, albeit in a purely platonic manner, helps immensely.
* GroinAttack: To Sheldon. The guy really had it coming, and he was warned.
* HappilyAdopted: Zigzagged. She is adopted, and she knows it, however, she is generally not happy in the Fuller family. Although she's getting food, clothing, and shelter, she knows she's not being given anywhere near the affection that her Jerkass brother, Tom, gets.
* HiddenDepths: Which are gradually unveiled over the course of the story.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: She's one of the {{trope namer}}s (and provides the page image) due to saying this nearly verbatim during a DreamSequence in which she suddenly possessed a rack equal in size to Ash's.
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Deconstructed; the fact that Ash does interest her romantically (alone among all girls) is the cause of quite a bit of heartache for her.
* OfficialCouple: It is strongly implied that if not for Ash's Misfile, she would be this for Ash. Even though it's purely platonic, Ash ''still'' dotes on her.
* ReplacementGoldfish: When she feared that she might be this to Ash because Emily was unavailable, she had an epic breakdown. Ash, for his part, was all too happy to cheer her up by proving her wrong, [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished and they very nearly]] [[RapeAsDrama paid dearly for it.]]
* RomanticFalseLead: To Ash.
* StepfordSmiler: Underneath that GenkiGirl exterior lies a lonely, insecure, and very, very scared little girl.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She certainly has no problems with wearing girly colors, skirts or other stereotypically feminine apparel, and she certainly appreciates things like candlelit moments and the like. That said, her main hobby ''is'' building cars, and she's more prone to engine grease on her face than makeup.
* TheUnfavorite: The Fullers are much more interested in Tom and his college career, and Missi notes that they often leave her alone to spend time with him.
* WrenchWench: She doesn't have her license yet, and yet she's already capable of putting together quality racing vehicles (she was the one responsible for all of Tom's cars). What's more, she's so good at welding, she can make a chain shirt out of discarded soda can ring-tops, and the shirt doesn't chafe!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Dr. Edward Upton]]

Ash's father, the divorced gynecologist. Surprisingly chill about several strangers crashing in his home.

!!Associated tropes:
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: It's not enough that he memorizes women's vaginas, due to his job as a gynecologist... it's the fact that he'll ''describe'' them for everyone in earshot at the drop of a hat.
* {{Blackmail}}: Of sorts - to make sure that Ms. [=MacArthur=] doesn't prohibit Emily from spending time with Ash, he notes that he could really help Emily get into Harvard, as he knows several people there. But he'd really only go that far for his daughter's friends.
* ControlFreak: The reason that Ash's mother left him. Matured out of this for the current timeline. He matured out of it in ''both'' timelines; the difference lies in how he treats his child. As a boy, Ash was given the cold shoulder by his emotionally distant father; as a girl, she gets a DotingParent out of the deal. Besides the relationship element, Edward probably sees even more of Marie in girl-Ash, hence his more affectionate manner. Indeed: he seems quite upset about how distant he and Ash have been since the misfile (which is no less than they were when Ash was male), and openly comments on it. Ash, of course, is too uncomfortable to really reply.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: He might not have ''known'' that Ramael's an angel, but standing up to the guy (mysterious stranger with shady look about him, anyone?) was still pretty {{Badass}} of Dr. Upton. Ash, and even Vashiel, were both gobsmacked and awed by it.
* DirtyOldMan: Though he doesn't seem to be older than late-thirties.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's perfectly comfortable acting like a perv or performing blackmail... that said, he is a loving father and even tries to help Rumisiel grow up.
* {{Kuudere}}: Even his ex-wife admits that he has his good moments... he's just pretty distant from most people. He shows it best with his interactions with Emily, as he tries his best to encourage the friendship between her and Ash.
* NotGoodWithPeople: That "describe vaginas at any moment" habit of his doesn't win him any friends - the fact that Missi called him "freaky creepy" is part of why the Uptons never got invited to the Fuller family Halloween party.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: [[spoiler: His actual intent behind giving Rumisiel a bunch of manual labor chores during summer break.]]
* UltimateJobSecurity: He might be creepy, but he's apparently just that damn good at gynecology.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Molly]]

Emily's longtime best friend.

!!Associated tropes:
* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling The Old Woman Out]]: Though it's Emily's mother, not her own, that's on the receiving end. She then reveals that she was going to do it anyway before leaving for college, and Ms. [=McArthur's=] abrasiveness toward her own daughter has provided her with an opportunity to let loose what she ''really'' thinks of Emily's [[MyBelovedSmother beloved smother]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Goes from AlphaBitch to LovableAlphaBitch
* LovableAlphaBitch: She's a very popular girl, and not always the nicest, but she obviously cares about Emily.
* [[spoiler:NearDeathExperience]]: She was [[spoiler:in a horrible car wreck the night before she was set to leave for college that resulted in a badly-broken leg and having to postpone matriculation. It is stated explicitly that had it not been for the misfile, Emily probably would have been sitting in the passenger seat – closest to the impact and completely crumpled – and died.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Colin]]

!!Associated tropes:
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome
* DoggedNiceGuy: Acts like this, and is rather crushed when Ash isn't interested
** Also gets [[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2011-01-25 told off]] by Heather at Cassiel's party for Eponine.
* StalkerWithACrush: Gives off the vibe, but he only is that way when Ash comes to the store

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tom Fuller]]

Missi's big brother and Ash's unfriendly rival in racing.

!!Associated tropes:
* AloofOlderBrother: Has some elements towards Missi.
* {{Jerkass}}: He needlessly antagonizes Ash at every opportunity, letches on multiple girls at his family's Halloween party, and the closest he ever shows to a redeeming feature is wanting to protect his sister... from Ash, but only because he's an asshole towards Ash.
* JerkJock: Though more regarding racing, but yeah, he otherwise fits the criteria.
* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse - hasn't happened (yet), but would if Missi reveals if she did all the work on his car.
* TheRival: He was Ash's while at High School, though even now he's the one driver who could be called his/her ArchEnemy.
* ParentalFavoritism: Strong indications that he's favored over his sister, Missi.
* PutOnABus: Sent off to college.
* StarterVillain: Not ''villain'' per se, but he fits the general criteria.
* StrawMisogynist: Has elements of this, though it could just be a hatred of Ash.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: (Kamikaze) Kate [[spoiler:Walsh]]]]

An excellent racer with a chip on her shoulder, who is at least a little insane. Eventually comes to see Ash as a WorthyOpponent.

!!Associated tropes:
* AxCrazy: At first - she was quite ready to run anyone who got in her way off the road. She still has a severe demeanor that multiple people fear that this still applies.
* BadassDriver: Acknowledged to be the best in the cast. It was considered an incredible performance when Ash had a chance at winning their second race.
* BloodKnight: Racing version - she would do everything in her power to humiliate anyone who raced the old road in her misguided drive for vengeance.
* BrokenBird: Kate wasn't even the best driver in her family, not did she seem that interested in becoming the best. When her sister died, though, she became consumed with the desire to get vengeance on everyone else behind the wheel.
* TheComicallySerious: Funniest when she is completely serious
* CoolBigSis: Develops into this, of sorts. Mind you, she still scares the crap out of Ash.
* DeathSeeker: At first - it's not until Rumisiel [[spoiler:exorcises her sister's soul]] that she discovers joy in anything and wants to live again.
* DefrostingIceQueen: The aftermath of her second race with Ash has her realizing that there are things to enjoy in life, and she starts growing closer to multiple people. As her interactions with Missi show, however, she's still not Captain Cuddles.
* TheDreaded: Her reputation in Tempest, which hasn't quite faded yet even though [[spoiler:Rumisiel exorcised her sister's soul.]]
* HappilyMarried: [[spoiler:Her and Harry.]]
* MsFanservice: In her Princess Leia costume, at Halloween.
* RedBaron: "Kamikaze Kate".
* ReplacementGoldfish: All but asked Ash to be her sister, and plenty of hints that she still sees Ash this way.
* SpiritedCompetitor: Figuratively and literally.
* {{Tsundere}}: Of the non-love interest variety towards Ash.
* YouNeedToGetLaid: She flat out said this about herself to Ash to convince her to babysit little Harry while she and her husband go on a date, while her hands are dangerously close to Ash's throat.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Harry Walsh]]

Runs an auto store in town where many local racers (particularly Ash) get parts.

!!Associated tropes:
* DeadpanSnarker: Examples such as being concerned about what would happen if Kate entered a church, and when Ash needed to back out for him to get out
* FunetikAksent: Apparently meant to be Welsh.
* HappilyMarried: [[spoiler:Looks to be that way with Kate.]]
* KirkSummation: Gives one to Heather that makes it stop for a moment.
* NiceGuy: He's in PerpetualPoverty, yet he still charges reasonable rates to his customers.
* PerpetualPoverty: Mentioned that he had some issues making ends meet.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Supposedly Welsh, but [[LampshadeHanging noted in-story]] as being nigh-impossible to place.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Eponine]]

A fairly normal girl in Ash's class. Unintentionally becomes intertwined in the plot.

!!Associated tropes:
* AscendedExtra: Originally just a friend from Ash's Gym Class, who showed up every once in a while. Now, she's become a fairly important plot character.
* MoralityPet: Ever since befriending Cassiel, the angel has been getting less and less selfish.
* NiceGirl: Which is noted - Ash remembers her as one of the few girls who was genuinely kind and friendly towards him/her, and she manages to avoid being a doormat despite her sweet nature. She's also apparently the only human Cassiel shows genuine regard for.
* PalsWithJesus: Although she doesn't know Cassiel is an angel, her friendship with Cassiel is genuinely a friendship, in contrast with Ash and Emily's 'friendship' with Rumisiel, where Ash is just waiting for Rumi to correct the Misfile.
* TokenBlack: Kind of, seeing as there aren't any other dark-skinned characters of importance. Still, given the centralized cast, it's not really very jarring - especially since she's ''not'' a stereotyped character.
* WhatTheHellHero:
** Gives one to Ash for not trusting Logan about the pictures, and not talking to her about it.
** And then when Ash finally tries to make amends ''weeks'' later, it turns out 'Nine had let it go after only a few days and is quite willing to forgive. NiceGirl? Without a ''doubt''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: James]]

Ash's old friend and mentor. And, in the reordered Misfile reality, a bit more…

!!Associated tropes:
* BadassDriver: Ash is better, but he did teach Ash to race and drive.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Like most people, he isn't told about the misfile, which results in heartbreak as "his" Ash acts different from the one he "remembers".
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Had he not been so manic while racing Ash, who knows if he would have lost.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: At first, though justified because he thought that Rumsiel was just a jerk.
* {{Megane}}
* PutOnABus: Disappeared for over a thousand strips after the Cape Cod race.
* RelationshipUpgrade: Played with, it seems that girl-Ash's 'fun' with him that one night in the car caused James to interpret that as such. Unfortunately for him, the Misfiled Ash we know wants to keep him as her best friend.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Not only was James the best friend of boy-Ash, it's revealed that girl-ash even lost her virginity to him. Unfortunately, the misfiled Ash is squicked out by this.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Logan]]

!!Associated tropes:
* AnimeHair: His spiky hair was even the source of his fan nickname!
* AuraVision: Logan can tell the difference between humans and angel, without the angel needing to reveal themselves.
* BadassDriver: Despite never racing before, he's very naturally gifted and proved a challenge for Ash, a more experienced racer.
* BadassPacifist: Logan manages to save Ash and Missi from their near rape experience, not by beating the pulp out of the two would be rapists, but by taking a picture and threatening that he'd run and tell the cops if they wouldn't leave... He just moments later reveals to the two his phone battery was dead, and he wasn't all that fast a runner.
* BigDamnHeroes: Shows up when Ash and Missi are being threatened by two older men who aren't particular about consent.
* JustInTime: Saved Ash and Missi from a near rape experience.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Marie Upton]]

Ash's semi-estranged mother, who works in the fashion industry.

!!Associated tropes:
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: She's a former lingerie model and is a little bit ''too'' pleased that Ash takes after her in the body department, constantly asking Ash to model.
* BuxomIsBetter: As one would expect from a former lingerie model. It's obvious she's where Ash gets it from.
* MissingMom: Discussed. Marie left Edward when Ash was little, leaving Ash to be raised by a single father, who only showed Ash a photograph of her many years later. Boy-Ash had zero contact with his mother beyond that photo… and was shocked to find that in the Misfiled universe, Girl-Ash had more contact with her. The divergence happened four years prior to the beginning of the story – both had written a letter to her, but Girl-Ash sent the letter, while Boy-Ash ripped it up because it made him feel 'like a sissy boy'.
* MyGirlIsASlut: She met Edward Upton in a wild night, including a ''threesome''!
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Prepares breakfast for Ash, Emily, Rummisiel, and James wearing lingerie. She's also featured prominently in racy catalogs and markets feminine undergarments in a very risque manner.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Ms. [=McArthur=]]]

Emily's mother, easily the biggest antagonist in the story who isn't an angel or a racer. Obsessed with the Ivy League. Does '''''not''''' like Ash.

!!Associated tropes:
* BrokenPedestal: Emily is pretty shocked when she discovers that [[spoiler:her mother has been using stimulants to maintain her job performance.]]
* EducationMama: Ms. [=McArthur=] pretty much has an obsession with seeing Emily go to an Ivy League school. She prefers Harvard, although she's at least willing to consider seven other options.[[note]] The other official Ivy schools are Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Brown, Columbia, U-Penn, and Cornell.[[/note]]
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:She shows some unexpected appreciation and insight about cars, as she reveals when she sees the classic Mustang Emily received from Ash's winning against Burt - her father actually owned a car of the same kind when she was a girl. Emily states the next day that they talked for a good while, her mother giving Emily insight into her grandparents.]]
* KickTheDog: Rare non-villainous example: she actually ''yells'' at Emily and tears her a new one (a whole ''lot'' of new ones, in fact) for running away. [[CallingTheOldManOut This unusually abrasive act costs her Molly's respect in nothing flat.]]
* LastNameBasis: Her first name has not been stated.
* MyBelovedSmother: Pretty much the degree Ms.M takes that whole 'Education Mama' thing. This eventually reaches the point where Molly [[CallingTheOldManOut yells at her]] to go [[PrecisionFStrike fuck]] herself for grounding Emily in a fit of utter rage, then revealing that she was about to vent her feelings toward her anyway since she was about to go to college and Ms. [=McArthur's=] going off on her own daughter has given her such an exceptional opportunity.
* TeenPregnancy: She got pregnant with Emily in high school, which was why she didn't end up going to Harvard herself.
[[/folder]]

!Angels

[[folder: Rumisiel]]
''[[http://www.misfile.com/?page=13 Ash, this is Emily, Emily, that's Ash. I'm sorta responsible for both your situations.]]''

An angel who had a tendency to fail at his job (including causing the titular Mis-file), which is why he's stuck on Earth.

!!Associated tropes:
* {{Adorkable}}: Rumisiel, when he is sober and genuinely trying to help, has a distinct tendency towards Adorkability in social situations.
* TheAtoner: Somewhat halfheartedly at first, but he has recently started to become more proactive in his role.
* BadassBoast: Rumisiel has [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=986 one]] as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* TheBeard
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* ChivalrousPervert: He has no problems playing eroge (they're Ash's games, so Ash has no problems with that either), reading porn, and once boasted about getting an eyeful of Ash's lower regions when Ash was GoingCommando as an alternative to a particularly uncomfortable thong, and had a high heel break, taking a tumble wearing a very revealing dress. Also, Rummi has stared down the cleavage of women on occasion. Still, Rumisiel magically closes the curtain when Ash and Emily are about to have sex for the first time, to Missi's chagrin, addresses a lingerie clad Marie, Ash's mother, by either looking her in the eyes, or admiring the food she prepared, while [[SourPrude James]], is slack-jawed and nose-bleeding, and genuinely acts like a decent ''human'' being, the majority of the time.
* DeadpanSnarker: Rumisiel sometimes gets some true gems. [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=1588 See here]].
* EruditeStoner: Whenever Rumisiel isn't unconscious, puking or whimpering, you can tell that he's [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Really An Ancient, Wise, Angelic Being]]. Of course, until Ash harangued him off booze and drugs at the beginning of the story, he used to spend thirty percent of his time doing each of those, so he spends a steadily decreasing percentage of his time whimpering or just slacking off.
* FalseDichotomy: Combined with PerfectSolutionFallacy. From the beginning, Rumi has insisted that "correcting" the Misfile one way or another would cause permanent irreversible changes with the recipient of said correction completely losing all memory of what came before, both in events and the previous state of the file. He uses this as an excuse to do nothing at all, and constantly tries to get both Ash and Emily to accept this state of affairs. While Emily's file is far more stable, [[DeadManWalking and has a very valid reason to leave it alone]], Ash's misfile continues to become more unstable with each passing moment, and has drawn the attention of various dangerous super-powered entities. As such, both Ash and Emily ''insist'' that Rumi find a way.
* HiddenDepths: When he explains how he ''really'' felt about his job and why he screwed up, he becomes somewhat more sympathetic both to viewers and to Ash (as much as he ''can'' be, at any rate).
* MundaneUtility: Rumisiel is an angel, and you'd expect him to have some kind of awesome holy weapon for smiting the heathens, right? Wrong. He works in filing, so he gets a "filing multi-tool" that "does all sorts of neat records-keeping stuff. It scans, records, photographs. The newest upgrade even has web access." Wait... So '''''THAT'S''''' where [[Series/TwentyFour Jack Bauer]] got his [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=1545 cell phone!]]
-->'''Ash''': ''You probably just use it to [[TheInternetIsForPorn look at porn.]]''\\
'''Rumisiel''': ''No way!''\\
'''Ash''': '''''Let me see your bookmarks!'''''\\
'''Rumisiel''': '''''No! I'm sending it back to the ether! It's not for mortal eyes!'''''
** [[spoiler:That multi-tool turns out to be his own access key into the filing depot. He apparently never noticed it because he's always had it on him, thus giving him the impression that the doors opened for him on their own accord.]]
* NailedToTheWagon: After an early incident where his attempt at doing good deeds resulted in a drunken bender, Ash bans him from partaking of alcohol or drugs.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While he ''can'' generally be a bit of a moron, much of the time he acts like a nuisance when Ash is in a sour mood, he's actually hoping for Ash to vent his/her frustration on Rumi as a coping mechanism. [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Rumisiel [[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=1817 here]].
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: He's like all others in the series - humanoid form, pointy ears, white hair, has wings and a halo that he can hide, apparently has some vague power that keeps most from immediately recognizing what he is.
* PermaStubble: To highlight his slacker nature, it perennially looks like he has about a day's worth of stubble.
* PointyEars: One of the hallmarks of the supernatural in the series.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: His precise age isn't known, but it's in the centuries.
* ToxicFriendInfluence: Feels he was being this for Cassiel, which is why he broke up with her. [[spoiler: Turns out to be inverted when Cassiel makes her appearance, and starts being catty.]]

[[folder: Vashiel]]
''[[http://www.misfile.com/?page=136 My name is Vashiel of the second order of holy swords, divine punishment division. I am here to see Rumisiel. Is he here ?]]''

Rumisiel's loving big brother. He takes an administrative leave after Rumi was kicked out of Heaven to come to Earth and to help him get back. Since he is incapable of telling a lie, he is kept in the dark about Ash and Emily's little problem.

!!Associated tropes:
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:For past misdeeds unknown to his little brother.]]
* {{Badass}}: Though his powers are partially sealed due to being based on
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Vashiel is polite almost to the point of painfulness to nearly everyone he meets. However, when Cassiel hints about messing with Rumisiel, he responds with a threat to make it such that even her uncle - {{Satan}} - couldn't protect her. And he CannotTellALie - he means every word.
* BigBrotherInstinct: See above - threatening Rumisiel is the quickest way to get Vashiel into business mode. And remember, his business is vengeance.
* CannotTellALie: To the extreme - not only can he not tell a lie, he tells the truth in its entirety even if it would be better not to. He literally cannot hide falsehood nor details. It's likely the only reason he hasn't been locked away is because nothing he's said is ''too'' outlandish... and because his brother is there to prevent such from happening.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:He was once a hot-headed sort that committed some amount of devestation and likely murder over what he deemed to be insufficient respect from humans. He was punished for the indiscretion, but details have yet to be forthcoming.]]
* FishOutOfWater: He's noticeably not ''quite'' as well-adapted to life on Earth as his brother.
* FlamingSword: Has one, which was only shown in flashback.
* GoodIsNotDumb: It's a ''punishment angel'', for Heaven sake!
* IncompatibleOrientation: He's in love with Ash. Ash prefers girls. Rumisiel notes that this technically applies [[GenderBender both ways]] regarding the two, although he doesn't clarify for Vash beyond "she's not your type."
* InverseLawOfUtilityAndLethality: Vashiel is an Angel of Vengeance, and is endowed with a [[FlamingSword Flaming]] [[InfinityPlusOneSword Holy Sword]] that can even kill other angels. He hasn't done any "[[http://www.misfile.com/index.php?page=141 really good smiting]]" in centuries, so all he really uses it for is scaring televangelists.
* KnightTemplar: In his backstory - [[spoiler: apparently he destroyed a city and smote many people, for which he was punished by the Celestial Beaurocracy. For his part, Vashiel believes the punishment was right and just.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Justified - if he knew about the misfile, he'd be compelled by his compulsive honesty to report it. If he reported it, Rumisiel would get a permanent exile from heaven and the bosses would change the files so as to make the misfile permanent.
* NiceGuy: Absurdly so. [[spoiler:He has a DarkAndTroubledPast, but has for the most part moved past it and seems genuinely well-adjusted these days.]]
* {{Nosebleed}}: Quite prone to them.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: He's like all others in the series - humanoid form, pointy ears, white hair, has wings and a halo that he can hide, apparently has some vague power that keeps most from immediately recognizing what he is.
* PointyEars: One of the hallmarks of the supernatural in the series.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: His precise age isn't known, but it's in the centuries.

[[folder: Cassiel]]

Rumisiel's ex, who has taken some time off to pop down and see how he's doing with his punishment. But not in a good way; things apparently went south between the two, and she seems quite eager to make sure his sojourn to Earth becomes a bit more permanent. She's also {{Satan}}'s neice.

!!Associated tropes:
* AlphaBitch
* BeleagueredBureaucrat
* CastingCouch: Rumisiel claims that she used their relationship (and connections with his father, the ArchangelGabriel) to get a job in the CelestialBureaucracy.
* CleavageWindow: Several of her outfits in her human disguise contain these.
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* HumiliationConga: Frequently.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain:
** So far, her biggest victory over Rumi has been [[PokeThePoodle serving him substandard hors d'oeuvres]]. And even that [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin blows up in her face]].
** It took her washing dishes for hours to come up with the "plan" of infiltrating the boy's bathroom and splashing water on Rummi's pants.
** Although she did [[spoiler:convince James to fake being in a relationship with her to try and make Ash jealous and stir up Rumisiel]]. [[spoiler:It doesn't go anywhere - Ash's attempts to "feel happy for him" make James feel guilty for doing it, and he informs Cassi than he's ending the charade just before cheerfully slamming the door in her face.]]
* {{Jerkass}} -> JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* MasterOfIllusion: While all angels can appear as normal humans, Cass is the only one to bother to. Rumi is just bad at it, and it's hinted that Vash's [[CannotTellALie compulsive honesty]] prevents him from doing so.
* MoralityPet: Eponine is this to her.
* NotHyperbole: She really is Satan's niece.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent
* PetTheDog: Whatever she thinks of other people, human or angel, she genuinely cares about Eponine.
* PointyEars
* PokeThePoodle
* PowerPerversionPotential: Heavily hinted to have explored this with Rumisiel; her usual disguise is confirmed to be the one she used to use when role-playing with him.
* PsychoExGirlfriend
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* ShapeShifterDefaultForm: Of the "preferred form" sort; even though she [[InformedAbility is said]] to be capable of many different illusiory forms, she sticks to the one, even when it'd make more sense to try another (such as when she tried to fool Rumisiel the first time).
* WomanScorned: Not elaborated on at this time, but this is her main motivation for her issues with Rumi.

[[folder: Ramael]]

!!Associated tropes:
* BloodKnight: Admits that he finds smiting evildoers to be addictive.
* FlamingSword
* [[spoiler:KnightTemplar]]: This seems to be why he [[spoiler:killed those would-be rapists]], though we have to wait to be sure.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld

[[folder: Xaphrael]]

!!Associated tropes:
* {{Badass}}: Formerly a member of Vashiel's forces, his current position makes him Rumisiel's superior.
* TheChainsOfCommanding
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* IKnowYoureWatchingMe: Part of his angelic role, there is nowhere to hide.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Consider that he chose to be lenient with Rumisiel for [[spoiler: eliminating the body of a dead Archon - despite it being crucial evidence for a case being investigated - because Rumisiel's motive was well-intentioned defence of his brother.]]
