!David Bartlett

An art student at Miskatonic University, and main protagonist of the story.

!! Tropes Associated With David
* DeadpanSnarker: Often, though some of it could be related to shock.
* GenreSavvy: David, when it comes to dealing with real world-Lovecraft world interactions. Realizing that there must be a coverup agency, he goes into hiding for a few days to see how the agency operates (whether they use "arson" or "a gas leak" as an excuse for his roommates' murders) so he'll know if it's government-based or not.
** "I knew I was not going to like that answer."
* IKnowYourTrueName: He knows Nancy's though he can't pronounce it which is why he ended up giving her the name Nancy in the first place.
* KnightInSourArmor: Frequently cold and snarky, but often helps folks in need. According to the opening narration for chapter 3, it is quite possible to comprehend life's ultimate lack of meaning and still be perfectly satisfied with it.
* MadArtist: Check out David's rough figure drawings of Nancy [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100614.html here]] and [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100615.html here]]. While these are life-drawings and accurate depictions, others might come to the conclusion that he is a bit odd.
* MistakenForMurderer: The Delta Green agents believe that David is an evil cult leader who sacrificed his followers to summon and bind an EldritchAbomination into his service since he was the only survivor of Nancy's summoning.
* NightmareFetishist: From a young age he's been drawing strange and grotesque images.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant
* PermaStubble
* UnluckyEverydude: Naturally, since this is an affectionate parody of the harem and magical girl genre. His fascination with the strange tends to put other people off.
* WeirdnessMagnet

!Nancy Alhazred

A servitor of the elder god Azraboath, she was summoned by a cult to fulfill their deepest wishes -- much to their detriment. She is trapped on Earth until she is able to understand and fulfill David's wish of "having someone give a crap about him." There are possibly other reasons she is here.

!!Tropes Associated with Nancy
* {{Kuudere}}: and/or DefrostingIceQueen. Maybe EmotionlessGirl as well.
* LiteralGenie: Her job. As she's a StarfishAlien it frequently becomes a case of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: A bit of a running gag.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Nancy obviously isn't her real name. David gave it to her on the spot because her real name is StarfishLanguage and he can't pronounce it.
* TheSpock:
* TrademarkFavoriteFood / SenseFreak: Nancy certainly likes pancakes.
--> '''David''': You didn't have to eat all their jelly, you know.\\
'''Nancy''': [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100430.html Yes, I did. It was an imperative.]]
* WhatIsThisFeeling: Being a StarfishAlien from the outer reaches with BlueAndOrangeMorality she hasn't ever experienced emotions as humans experience them. She seeks to learn about these emotions to fulfill her pact with David. See also IsThisWhatAngerFeelsLike.

!Sleeper of N'kai, AKA Tsathoggua

A eldritch creature that lives in the forests of Arkham. David selflessly rescues some of her servants -- frogs -- and as a reward she wishes him to become her mate and consort.

!!Tropes Associated With the Sleeper of N'kai
* BalefulPolymorph: Due to her BlueAndOrangeMorality, she thinks people are better off as frogs. She considers it to be rescuing them from their humanity.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Moreso than the rest, for she never becomes completely human in form.
* EveryScarHasAStory: She has a vertical scar running down from her forehead, across the eye socket, and down her cheek to her jaw. It is later revealed she got this scar from a Hyperborian wizard testing out an enchanted knife.
* GenderFlip: Practically every other Franchise/CthulhuMythos depictions has Tsathoggua as male.
* MotherOfAThousandYoung: Mentions wanting to be this with David.
* NonMammalMammaries: The [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100317.html Sleeper of N'Kai]]. Also BarbieDollAnatomy.
* {{Yandere}}

!Shub-Niggurath, AKA "Shubby"

An eldritch abomination that lives in the forest next to David's house. She visited to meet the new couple and hasn't left since.

!!Tropes Associated with Shubby
* CoolBigSis: Introduces herself as one to David. She gives him advice on how to deal with various encounters with the strange, along with advice on his burgeoning relationship with Nancy. And of course teases him incessantly.
* GenreSavvy: Almost to the point of MediumAwareness.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Shubby smokes a pipe. No telling where this lands on the distinction...
* GorgeousGorgon: [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100809.html Shubby]] was called "Six-Gun Gorgon Dynamo" by the Elder Things. Also counts as a shoutout to a song by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: Shubby uses one. [[{{BFG}} It's as long as her lower arm.]]

!The Shoggoth

A near-mindless servitor of the Old Ones, it had broken free from its containment to rampage through Arkham. It encountered Nancy and Dave while they were out on a stroll through the park. After a short yet violent battle, Nancy managed to convert the creature into the shape of a short, adorable young woman.

!!Tropes Associated with the Shoggoth
* BrainlessBeauty: A rather extreme example. She has to be taught with a magical cattle-prod.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* ExtremeOmnivore: Anything organic. Knows enough not to eat the house and won't eat David.
* NoNameGiven: As of yet.
* TeamPet: She's more of a human-shaped animal than a person making her this.
* TokenMiniMoe: She's tiny in her human form. Her shoggoth form is... variable.

!Nyarlathotep AKA Narla "Norice" Hotep

A bookstore owner by day, and a HumanoidAbomination servant of the Elder Gods the rest of the time. She recently encountered Dave and his expanding collection of eldritch horrors while he was trying to sell back some old textbooks. She seems to be tagging along out of curiosity and her innate desire to screw people over to further the plans of the Elder Gods.

!!Tropes Associated With Narla
* JackassGenie: She will frequently pretend to misunderstand people's wishes in the most horrible way.
* {{Tsundere}}: Supposedly. We haven't really seen enough of her yet to confirm it, but she certainly has the attitude for it.


An organization that fights against eldritch abominations and their human servants. At the moment the team stationed in Arkham is operating under the assumption that David is a 5,000 years-old sorcerer and a leader of a cult, who sacrificed all his acolytes to bind an eldritch horror to his service. They also think David will play a large part in a prophecy of doom. As such, they want him dead very badly.

!!Tropes Associated with Delta Green:
* InspectorJavert: TabletopGame/DeltaGreen agents think David is an occult priest who murdered the whole cult to summon and bind Nancy. They refrain from taking direct action against him though, fearing Nancy's power.
* KnightTemplar
* TheMenInBlack: A few of them, though the majority of the team try to blend in or infiltrate.
* WellIntentionedExtremist
