!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
* [[spoiler:DealWithTheDevil]]: 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
* [[spoiler:NiceJobBreakingItHero: 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...]]
** [[spoiler:SpannerInTheWorks: ...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.

!Magi C. Waters
->'''Role:''' Psychiatrist, guidance counselor, truancy officer
->'''Power:''' [[MakingASplash Water]]
* 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.

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. In a relationship with James.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Soft-spoken, motherly, ladylike, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick not afraid to choke someone with strong vines...]]

* TheMedic
* 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.

!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.

* BlindingBangs
* FourStarBadass: Revealed to have been one in the past.
* GeniusSweetTooth
* [[spoiler:HeKnowsTooMuch: 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 result of the Dark Star's [[SuperSoldier Project Revenant]], Selene is an elite assassin for the organization, serving as Alexei's right-hand woman and bodyguard.

* 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.]]
* TheMcCoy: A twisted, AxCrazy version, to Alexei's [[TheKirk Kirk]] and Vladimir's [[TheSpock Spock]].

[[folder:Garrett Mclaggen]]
!Garrett [=McLaggen=]
->'''Role:''' Caretaker/janitor
->'''Power:''' Can invert gravity
* [[spoiler:AndIMustScream: As a cyborg in the game.]]
* TheBigGuy: Formerly this for Dr. Archer's FiveManBand.
* [[spoiler:BodyHorror: In his cyborg form.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeathSeeker: Before being cured.
* DeterminedDefeatist
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: In the game, if the sidequest to cure his zombification is not taken by a certain point, Garrett ends up siding with Vladimir on the promise of a cure. He ends up being used as a [[AndIMustScream test subject]] for his experiments.]]
* {{Gonk}}: Hideously emaciated, as can be expected for a zombie; he compares himself to [[Music/IronMaiden Eddie]].
* GravityMaster: Essentially telekinesis on a single vertical axis.
** GravitySucks
* GutturalGrowler
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Anna, resembling a surrogate father/daughter pair.
* HeroicNeutral
* [[spoiler:TheMole: For Vladimir in the game if he is left uncured. This ends up being his undoing in this scenario.]]
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Everyone else in the story has a very {{Main/Animesque}} design. Garrett, on the other hand, would not look out of place in a Main/JhonenVasquez series.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: In-universe; in the Zombie Apocalypse thread, he (apparently) single-handedly kills Vladimir and stops his cyborg army from rampaging through the town while the rest of the heroes were dealing with Nether.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: He's been infected by a zombie bite that will eventually turn him into one, but he retains his humanity via a special drug.
* StealthHiBye
* TerseTalker: He tends to speak very laconically.
* ViolentGlaswegian: In the past. He's mellowed out since then though; the zombification may have contributed.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Played with. At first glance, his power over gravity seems to serve no practical purpose aside from walking on the ceiling--useless except in very specific situations. It is later demonstrated to be essentially a restricted form of telekinesis.
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: If the above OffscreenMomentOfAwesome is any indication.
* WildHair

[[folder:Nether Gales]]

->'''Role:''' Teacher (subject TBA)
->'''Power:''' [[EvilSorcerer Magic user]]
* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Father]]: '''Big time.'''
* ArchnemesisDad: To all four elemental siblings, but Christine and El Terre in particular.
* BigBad: Of the Zombie Apocalypse arc, and seems to be the biggest, most imminent threat out of El Terre (the user)'s characters.
* DatingCatwoman: Still married to Susan.
* TheDreaded: In Christine's words, "worse than Trigan and Damian combined".
* EvilSorcerer
* ForTheEvulz
* HeroKiller
* ISurrenderSuckers
* MindRape
** MoreThanMindControl: He casts spells on Susan to convince her to stay with him, though she occasionally breaks free.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The news that he was coming to the school inadvertently inspired Christine to form the ANGEL defense force.
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: His zombie horde.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

->'''Role:''' Teacher, Zen 101
->'''Power:''' {{Telepathy}}

[[folder:Alzeri Ruin]]
!Alzeri Ruin
->'''Role:''' Formerly, teacher of the "Reading" class; currently, the school librarian
->'''Power:''' [[{{Lunacy}} Moon powers]]
* AndIMustScream: If he closes the book while someone is trapped in one of his stories, they remain frozen in time yet completely aware until he reopens it.
* BadassBookworm
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Well, white hair.
* HotLibrarian: Though he's not prim or prudish, like usual examples of the trope, he's particularly handsome and bookish.
* IllBoy: The reason for him temporarily leaving the Academy. Upon returning, he has been cured of the virus.
* KnightInSourArmor/UnscurpulousHero (see MoralDissonance)
* {{Lunacy}}
* MoralDissonance: Jackson and Willow point out that Alzeri's method of conveying a story to his participants--i.e., forcing them to act out the story until the end--amounts to torture. Adrian, on the other hand, is willing to turn a blind eye if it means that people like [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Vladimir]] would be subjected to it. This ends up costing Alzeri his job, thanks to Corben's intervention.
* PutOnABus: And then TheBusCameBack. [[DoubleSubvertedTrope And then]] he gets teleported by Corben to prison, on charges of torturing students.
* ScarfOfAsskicking

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He fought off Nether, Christine's father, to keep the former from cursing El Terre. And you would never guess from his silly antics.
