[[folder:Headmaster James Mall]]
!Headmaster James Mall
->'''Role:''' Headmaster and Founder of Power Academy
->'''Power:''' [[PlayingWithFire Pyrokinesis]]

A soldier-turned-superhero, James Mall is the renowned headmaster of Power Academy. He's also a member of an order worshiping a mythical firehawk creature. He's been through no small amount of trouble over the years, and he has put all of his effort and money into the Academy. If it goes under, he's out on the streets. In a relationship with Lily.

* [[AbsurdlyYouthfulMother Absurdly Youthful Father]]: Subverted. James (now 30) has a 9-year-old son, Jackson, who appears as and has the mind of a 19-year-old.
* AbusiveParents: His father tried several times to kick him out of the house before James finally ran away, leading to him joining the military [[ReallySeventeenYearsOld at 16.]]
* TheAlcoholic
** [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl Hard Drinking Party Guy]]
* BadassLongcoat: One of his regular outfits, worn without a shirt.
* BerserkButton: Threaten the school, the students, or Lily, and face his wrath.
* BigGood
* [[{{Bishonen}} Biseinen]]
* BrokenPedestal: Downplayed; he greatly disappoints Talan when he decides to cover up Trigan's murders for the greater good.
* CelibateHero: Set up, but eventually subverted; for years, he remained this way until he met Lily. [[spoiler:In light of his DealWithTheDevil, James wanting to stay single makes sense.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Don't let the laid-back, somewhat bumbling facade fool you. He ''will'' lay down the law when he has to.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:This is how he managed to get Power Academy built so quickly. [[spoiler:He ended up making a deal with a powerful demon. James would be able to instantly create the Academy, the cost being that if his heart was ever broken, he would die and the Academy would be destroyed.]]
* EccentricMentor
* FourStarBadass: In his early days, leading an elite team of superhumans to defeat Vulcannus.
* GreenEyes
* HiddenDepths: He has an intense amount of pressure on him; Power Academy is his life's work, and if it fails (and it is already in danger of failing), he'll have nowhere to go. It's not until he opens up to [[TeamMom Lily]] that his inner demons become apparent.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Partial inversion; though James is certainly more masculine, between him and Lily, he tends to be the more submissive one. His past "relationship" with Jane seems to reinforce this as well.
* MrFanservice
* MushroomSamba: After a near-death experience, Mikoto gives him a sedative to calm him down. It has some hallucinogenic side effects.
* MyGreatestFailure: He regards his failure to stop Wardson from destroying an entire city as this.
* MysticalWhiteHair
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:The aforementioned DealWithTheDevil, which allows him to create Power Academy so quickly, caused a dimensional flux in the Multiverse that ensnared Terminus. The Great Old One is now trapped within the heroes' universe...]]
** SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:...but now it gives them a chance to defeat her once and for all.]]
* NotAMorningPerson: As people who interrupt his naps learn the hard way.
** WakeUpFighting
* OnlySaneMan
* PlayingWithFire
* ReallySeventeenYearsOld: At age 16, he ran away from his family and faked his age to join the military, just to get away from them.
* TheRunaway: From his family as a child. See ReallySeventeenYearsOld above.
* TeamDad: More or less.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: See BadassLongcoat.

[[folder:Lily Taylor]]
!Lily Taylor
->'''Role:''' Nurse, Head of the Female Dorms
->'''Power:''' [[GreenThumb Control over plant life]]

Lily was once a superpowered teen vigilante before dedicating herself to becoming a nurse. She was also a close friend of the Ashen family; after their mother died and father disappeared, Val and Isaac were adopted by Lily. In addition to being a mother figure, she has served as a crimefighting mentor for them, training Val to manage her powers. At the Academy, in addition to [[TheMedic healing people]] and [[LivingEmotionalCrutch providing a calming influence for James]], Lily is the head of the female dorms. She has the ability to control and summon plant life to do her bidding, from healing to combat.

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother / AdoptivePeerParent: Following their mother's death, Val and Isaac (6 and 4 at the time) are adopted by Lily (18 at the time).
* AbusiveParents: Her mother [[IHaveNoSon hated her]] [[FantasticRacism for being a mutant,]] referring to her as "that thing" and kicking her out of the house when her powers awakened.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Soft-spoken, motherly, ladylike, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick not afraid to constrain someone with strong vines...]]
** BerserkButton: [[GaiasVengeance Threatening the environment]], or hurting/threatening [[MamaBear Val, Isaac]] [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend or James]].
* CombatStilettos: Often seen wearing high-heeled sandals. Justified in that she usually fights at a distance, as opposed to getting up close and personal.

* LadyOfWar / SilkHidingSteel
* TheLancer: To James, alongside Harken.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: For James. [[spoiler:Makes sense in hindsight once his DealWithTheDevil is revealed.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Partial inversion; Lily is very feminine, but between her and James, she's more strong-willed and tends to be the dominant one.
* TheMedic
* TheMentor: For Val.
* MsFanservice: She's [[{{Stripperiffic}} nearly always half-naked]] in her various nature- or floral-themed outfits. Lampshaded when [[SmugSnake Jane]] calls her a slut for how she looks, and when a [[MushroomSamba sedative-addled]] James mistakes her for a beautiful forest nymph.
** BareYourMidriff
** BuxomIsBetter
** ShesGotLegs
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Gets a lot of comparisons in-universe to [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Poison Ivy]], much to her chagrin.
* RapunzelHair: Her hair goes down to her hips.

* SimpleStaff
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: A big part of her attraction to James, aside from the pretty white hair, is his virtues.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's among one of the crazier staff members--and still manages to help the students, including Isaac and Fury, with their psychological issues.
* CloudCuckooLander: He believes himself to be a boy from Neverland.
** CloudCuckooLandersMinder: Nevertheless, between him and Harken, he appears to be the more sane of the two.
* {{Determinator}}: In the past, he was gravely wounded by an assassin and left for dead. However, his love for Harken helped him hold on long enough to signal for help and return home. He relates this anecdote to Selene, who is [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove struggling with her unfamiliar feelings for Timmy;]] he explains that love can be a source of strength.
* InsatiableNewlyweds: With Harken.

!!General Subject Teachers

[[folder: Harken Woods]]
!Harken Woods
->'''Role:''' Teacher, Moral Dilemma 101
->'''Power:''' [[TeleportersAndTransporters Teleportation]]

Harken is ostensibly the Moral Dilemma 101 teacher, but with every iteration of the class, the subject changes each time, [[SinkOrSwimMentor forcing the students to think on their feet]]. He has served as a mentor for James, and despite being legally insane, he is one of the most intelligent members of the staff. Harken has the ability to teleport anywhere, an ability he often uses to surprise people (especially his students). Married to Magi.

* BlindingBangs
* FourStarBadass: Revealed to have been one in the past.
* GeniusSweetTooth
* HeKnowsTooMuch: [[spoiler:While they were still involved in the military, James was sent by the government to hunt down and kill Harken, who had gone rogue. However, it turns out he had defected because he learned too many secrets, asking the wrong questions and provoking the wrong people.]]
* InsaneTrollLogic: His moral dilemmas; a simple question is given, with no context given beforehand. Example: Burn it or drown it? (Answer: [[spoiler:Burn it and then drown it. The target is a zombie; burning the zombie burns down the building you're protecting from the zombie apocalypse, drowning it doesn't kill it fully, and burning it and drowning it is the only way to ensure it's dead.]])
* InsatiableNewlyweds: With Magi.
* KaleidoscopeEyes: His eyes are constantly changing color, though they are usually obscured by his bangs.
* LargeHam
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Reveals himself to be Timmy's actual father, having hidden the truth from him.]]

!Mikoto Nakamura
->'''Role:''' Theater teacher, Newspaper Club advisor

A member of the [[CatGirl felis sapiens]] race, Mikoto is one of the school's nurses, often resorting to unconventional means to heal people. She's [[FunPersonified one of the more lighthearted members of the staff]], tending to provide levity to very heavy situations.

->'''Role:''' Teacher, Villainy 101
->'''Power:''' LifeDrain

The result of Equinox's [[SuperSoldier Project Revenant]], Selene is an elite assassin for the organization, serving as Alexei's right-hand woman and bodyguard. She is, outside of occasional bursts of lucidity, a bloodthirsty killer who relishes battle.

** MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Tends to be the more dominant one.
* TheDragon: To Alexei.

* FromNobodyToNightmare

* HairTriggerTemper
* HeelFaceTurn: She eventually sides with the heroes, both in the forum and (if spared after her boss fight) in the game.

* LittleBlackDress: Her casual outfit is a tight black [[HellBentForLeather leather]] minidress, with matching [[CombatStilettos heels]].
* LoveIsAWeakness: Believes so; due to the detachment from people she's built up from all the killing over the years, she grows increasingly fearful of her growing, unfamiliar feelings for Timmy. However, [[CharacterDevelopment she learns to see it as a source of inner strength.]]
* MsFanservice
* NightmareFetishist
* OlderThanTheyLook: Thanks to her LifeDrinker abilities, looks and feels 26, but is chronologically at least 15 years older.
* [[PsychopathicManChild Psychopathic Woman Child]]: Although she has bursts of lucidity.
* {{Sensei-chan}}

!Alexei Grigorovich Reznov
->'''Power:''' None, but has various cybernetic enhancements, including [[SwissArmyAppendage various weapons built into his bionic arm]]
->'''Role:''' Teacher, Self-Defense class

A longtime adversary of David Archer, Alexei is the head of the covert Equinox organization. He and his followers are determined to eliminate corruption and bring peace, order, and a new golden age to the world. ''[[KnightTemplar Their]]'' [[KnightTemplar golden age. At any cost.]] At the Academy, Alexei is the Self-Defense class teacher, in the vein of [[Franchise/HarryPotter Defense Against the Dark Arts]]. He has no superpowers per se, but is cybernetically augmented with SuperStrength and has a [[SwissArmyAppendage bionic arm with various weapons and gadgets built into his arm.

* AffablyEvil: Especially compared to the other villains. His subordinates are shown to, if not like, at least respect him. [[spoiler:He can even join forces with the heroes down the line.]]
* AnArmAndALeg: Lost his right arm in the past. Later on, he has his legs replaced with cybernetics below the knee to improve his endurance.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:In the game, if he is spared after his boss fight but not convinced to join forces with the heroes, Alexei later goes after Vilhelm's forces. He ends up being captured and turned into an elite cyborg minion.]]
** BodyHorror
** MercyKill: [[spoiler:When the party encounters him in this state, they are forced to fight him to the death. If Dahlia is in the party, she is always the one to deliver the killing blow after the fight.]]
* AntiVillain: Type III, being a KnightTemplar.
* ArchnemesisDad: [[spoiler:To Dahlia.]]
* ArtificialLimbs: His bionic arm (and later, his legs).

* BondVillainStupidity: Pushes himself to avert this trope as much as possible; [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim killing enemies rather than spare them, for instance.]]
* {{Cyborg}}
* DarkMessiah / VisionaryVillain: His subordinates hold him up as this.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He has multiple [[GodzillaThreshold last-resort backup plans]] for conquering the world, such as [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill using mind-control technology]] to subjugate humanity and establish utopia. However, he has deemed such methods too cruel for him--or anyone--to use. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters For now, anyway.]]
* FlunkyBoss: Being a tactical genius, Alexei doesn't take any chances in his boss fight and summons waves of [[EliteMook his elite guard]] to fight alongside him.

* KillerGameMaster: He very rarely goes easy on his students.
* KnightOfCerebus: In the game; he's the first boss where party members can be killed plot-wise.
* KnightTemplar
** TautologicalTemplar: In his worst moments. Alexei believes himself to be utterly benevolent, justifying all of his actions as being ForTheGreaterGood. So obviously, anyone who opposes him or his organization is misguided or evil, [[TemptingFate right?]] [[spoiler:At least, this is how he outwardly appears.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: He's at least a head taller than most other characters (with only [[StatuesqueStunner Alice]] matching his height), and he's in charge of Equinox.
* LiteralChangeOfHeart: Has a powerful mechanical heart, courtesy of Vilhelm, to replace his old one when he was mortally wounded in a mission years ago. [[spoiler:It can trigger a massive self-destruct explosion in the worst case scenario.]]
* TheMourningAfter: [[spoiler:Years after the death of his wife and elder daughter, he still can't move on.]]
* NotSoStoic

* ShirtlessScene: Has one for [[WalkingShirtlessScene the entirety of the battle for Hell]], where the evil Helena has ripped up his torso armor.

His muscles, cybernetics and [[LiteralChangeOfHeart mechanical heart]] are on full display.
* SuperStrength: Thanks to his cybernetic augmentation; far from being on the same level as naturally-gifted people like Alice, though.
* SwissArmyAppendage
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:During the battle for Hell, if he's still alive at that point, one choice the party makes during that mission is whether to save Alexei or his men. If they choose the latter, Alexei charges into a horde of Helena's minions, activating his heart's self-destruct function in one last blaze of glory.]]
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Briefly takes over as the Academy's headmaster when James goes missing.
* WeCanRebuildHim
* [[WeCanRuleTogether We Can Save This World Together]]: Makes this offer to James.
* WickedCultured: Often quotes from Tennyson and Hobbes. [[spoiler:If he dies, he quotes Literature/MobyDick ("To the last, I grapple with thee...") to his last breath.]]
