Characters in Webcomic/SisterClaire.


!! Main Characters

The heroine of the story, a orphan who was left on the doorstep of the Sister of Mercy chapel and raised by Sister Catharine. Though she tries to fit in with the other nuns, she feels horribly out of place. That all changes one particular night as she's using the can and gets an unexpected visitor.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Sort of a misfit in her covenant.
%%* ApologisesALot
* ChosenOne: Picked to be the next mother of Christ [[spoiler: long before she was even born apparently.]]
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: At the beginning of the comic.
* DoorstopBaby / ConvenientlyAnOrphan
* HolyChild: She once managed to [[spoiler:purify a ''Shard'', the setting's equivalent of a demon]].
* KindheartedCatLover: Indeed, she seems to attract them without even trying [[spoiler: though the story hints this isn't coincidence.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: According to Word Of G.O.D. she's around [[http://sisterclaire.tumblr.com/post/32734786722/how-old-is-claire 18 to 20]].
* RapunzelHair: She had this as a child, but it was cut short due to bullying.
%%* RedHeadedHero
* RedHeadedStepchild: When she was a child some of the other kids at the school bullied her because of her red hair due to the fact that a story they were told said that the Witch Queen had red hair as well.
* TookALevelInBadass: Starting with confronting Grimm with a holy watergun and later learning nun-fu. She also becomes much more assertive as the comic goes on.
%%* VirginPower
* WackyCravings: Due to her pregnancy she seems to have gotten an odd taste for wood.


An angel who delivers the news to Claire that she will be the next mother of the holy one. Playful and supportive, she does her best to prepare her for the trials to come.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Blue skinned
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Pretty much tells Claire its an order of God, no point in fighting it. Still she knows the hardships of whats to come down the line and tries her best to give a comforting hand to her.
* TheBusCameBack: Finally makes a return in the "Missing Moments" strips.
* DynamicEntry: [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=15 Makes coming]] [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=16 from the crapper]] [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=17 actually look beautiful.]]
%%* IHaveManyNames
* NakedFirstImpression: [[spoiler: How she met Clarie when she was younger. Her excuse being clothes, at the time, didn't transport well between portals.]]
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: She wouldn't be out of place on ''PantyAndStocking'' (and this comic ''predated'' that show).
* PutOnABus: She hasn't made an appearance in a ''very'' long while.
%%* RapunzelHair
%%* SexyMentor
* SpiritAdvisor: Well she is an angel.
* WeHaveReserves: Her bubble babies.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Catherine chews her out for introducing herself to a young Clarie naked. This wouldn't be so bad, except Clarie starts making drawings of her in that form and Catherine is rightly worried that this won't sit well with the other sisters if they see it.]]



Claire's guardian and maternal figure. She was the one who found Claire and raise her, thus both have a deep attachment to one another even though she's allergic to cats and Claire constantly stays in contact with them. However it seem there are some secrets she been hiding from both Claire and the Sisters of Mercy that have recently been coming to light. Secrets that seem to be connected to Claire.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Possibly, no confirmation however.
* BerserkButton: Hurting the ones she loves as Hanabi nearly found out the hard way after [[spoiler: she mortally wounded Oscar]].
* BrokenBird: The ''Missing Moments'' show that when she first came to the abbey, she'd obviously been through some trauma and loss.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: There have been hints, especially in the prequel comics, that show that Catharine hasn't had the easiest life. [[spoiler: The most recent comic reveals that she had some sort of relationship with the Witch Queen, the exact details of which are still ambiguous, and that her death scarred her.]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Due to the fact she had to flee the church and couldn't gather any proper clothes leaving her in her tattered habit and barefoot. Grimm most likely probably wouldn't let her wear any.
* FanNickname: Sister Cat, when she's being possessed by Grimm.
* GrossupCloseup: [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=7 Yeah it isn't pretty when she breaks out.]]
* MamaBear: The ''Missing Moments'' segments show she can be one [[spoiler: such as when Gabrielle first introduced herself to Clarie when she was a child.]]
%%* TheObiWan
* ParentalSubstitute: Just as good as any mother to Claire.
* PlotAllergy: Allergic to cats which is the only negative in her relationship to Claire. And considering her connection with Grimm, their might be a deeper reason for it.
* PunnyName: Sister '''Cat'''harine. May be counted as {{Foreshadowing}} once you consider her relationship with Grimm.
* SanitySlippage: Whatever affecting her is messing with her demeanor and is only getting worse during the travels.
* {{Tsurime}}: Further emphasizing her relation to cats.



A.K.A Evil Cat. The evil Cheshire looking cat that seems to be stalking Claire. Catharine did a ritual which somehow enables it to posses her body. It wants Claire for some reason, but for what hasn't been revealed yet.
* CheshireCatGrin: Considering who its design is based off of...
* DemonicPossession / GrandTheftMe: Seems to take over Catharine's body at night.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=19 Chapter 2]]
* FemmeFatalons: When in Catharine's body, her fingernails grow to this.
* GoodHairEvilHair: An indication of whose in control at the time. Grimm's hair while in Catharine is much more wild and feral looking.
* NoBiologicalSex: WordOfGod states this and refers to Grimm as [[http://sisterclaire.tumblr.com/post/22184471962/i-havent-talked-much-about-grimm-aka-evil-cat "they"]] and decided not to use "it" due to the ItIsDehumanizing trope.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Catharine claims that Grimm isn't evil and has a reason for wanting Claire.]]



A cat that Claire has taken in.

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: [[spoiler: After Clarie purifies its Shard form, it comes back as a white kitten.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Was once a Shard monster that Claire managed to purify when she was little.]]
* NonhumanSidekick: Considering how often it hangs around Clarie and is usually the one leading the other cats.
* TeamPet: To Claire [[spoiler: Which isn't surprising, given their past.]]


!! Sisters of Mercy

The abbey where Clarie was raised, run by quirky bunch of nuns who [[AllMonksKnowKungFu specialize in various combat]] [[spoiler: due to a majority being monsters hunters following the witch wars and having passed down their abilities to others]].


A very strict nun of the Sisters of Mercy. Enjoys punishing Claire for any minor offenses.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Green-skinned [[spoiler: least when her energia's being blocked. It becomes normal when it's not.]]
* FanDisservice: [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=282 Ugh! Seriously, Yamino?!]]
* GlowingEyes: [[spoiler: When summoning the mecha.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: [[spoiler: Same as above. Her personality turns a 180 after her energia is unblocked.]]
** Interestingly, [[spoiler:the storyline for Sister Claire's past shows that while Marguerite was still not exactly cuddly back then, she did get along pretty well with little Claire. Among other things, she looked after her with some kindness when Catherine was ill, apologized for frightening her when having a panic attack over a fire, and sincerely thanks Claire for bringing her tea.]]
* PlayingWithSyringes: We see her first interaction with Claire sticking her with needle full of laxatives as punishment for playing with cats
* SinkOrSwimMentor: She's the one who trained Catharine.
* SummonMagic: [[spoiler: Her power is connected to a mecha that was given to the search party by Mother Superior. The problem however is that she needs to keep her emotions in check otherwise it'll run rampant.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler: Only when her energia being blocked.]]
* TortureTechnician: She ''really'' loves her job.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Deathly afraid of fire [[spoiler: due to almost being burned alive by Sister Abraham.]]
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Based off a nun during the author's catholic school days. Exaggerated of course.


[[folder: Yolanda]]

The head sister or "Mother Superior" of the Sisters of Mercy. A short, fairly rational minded elderly nun.
* {{Expy}}: [[StarWars A certain green skinned Jedi, she is based on. Hmm?]]
* HalfHumanHybrid: Has goblin ancestry.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: Elderly and the shortest human characters of the cast.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Stern but always willing to give a chance to all but the unrepentantly evil.



One of the teachers of the covenant. She's the one that trains Claire in the art of Nun-Fu.
* BrokenBird: Along with her Dark and Troubled Past below. [[spoiler: Her time staying with the Helsing Branch likewise wasn't kind to her.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:During her apprentice days, her mentor was killed and eaten by wolf witches after saving her while she looked on helpless to do anything. She vowed from then on to not let something like that happen again.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: In her less serious moments, she's this.
* HeroicRROD: Her Hulking Out power is useful against monsters but, along with affecting her judgement, it puts a toll on her body's muscles including her heart. Meaning she can only use it in short bursts.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters[=/=]KnightTemplar: [[spoiler:Her hatred of witches has some unfortunate layers. Though it's revealed in ''Missing Moments'', she's a transfer from the Helsing group of nuns who're infamous for this behavior.]]
* HulkingOut: Can use a special technique to make her herself much more muscle-y, giving he a power boost.
* MassivelyNumberedSiblings: The sole sister to six brothers.
* RealityEnsues: And turns out HulkingOut like that leaves her with some wicked stretch marks.
* ScarsAreForever: Has a few on her left eye, as well as all over her body.
* SecretRelationship: [[spoiler: With Jackson]] The other nun always knew though, but apparently she wasn't aware of it until Azi brought it to light. And ''she'' just met the group.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: As mentioned, she put Claire through rigorous training to toughen her up.
* TokenGoodTeammate: [[spoiler: Within the Helsing group. She mentions they often belittled her for not going along with their methods and deem her as weak.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Is becoming one as the story goes.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:Gets called out for her unnecessary force by Sister Jackson and Yolanda.]]
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: A side effect of her power-up. The longer she stays within it, the more it affects her judgement that she'll start attacking both friend and foe.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She wants to protect people, but is a tad overzealous in trying to fight evil that it often clouds her sense of right and wrong.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler: At some point while tracking Claire's group. She's poisoned which is slowly killing her. It eventually takes it's toll rendering her unable to walk and Marguerite states she only has hours left. Azi manages to partly cure her of the poison, though needs additional help to help Olga walk again.]]


[[folder:Rosalie and Marie]]

Two twin sisters who've were at the abbey long before Claire joined.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=196 Oh yeah]]
* BishieSparkle: They apparently picked it up from Sister Oscar.
* CoolShades: When they go into action.
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: The two of them are technically identical, but have a number of [[http://yamino.deviantart.com/art/All-about-the-Twins-183960119 differences]] that allow them to be told apart.
* JumpedAtTheCall: When offered to come with Claire and Catharine, they didn't even need to think about it before saying yes.
* LongHairIsFeminine: Much to the surprise of Claire as nuns usually keep their hair short and consider long hair a sin of vanity.
* RedOniBlueOni: Rosalie's the red, Marie's the blue. [[http://yamino.deviantart.com/art/Young-Twins-291438443 This pic does a good job of showcasing it nicely.]] [[http://yamino.deviantart.com/art/All-about-the-Twins-183960119 This one shows off some other differences.]]
* SingleMindedTwins: Somewhat, they're usually seen together most of the time and on the same mindset. But do occasionally bicker now and then.
* SomethingAboutARose: A motif of theirs.
* TooDumbToLive: Well not often but they can be rather gung-ho most of the time. [[spoiler: When they confront Catharine about her secret she hiding and that she was lying during her witch trial. Catharine asks how they knew this. Rosalie is quick to clam up and drop the issue but Marie blurts out they could tell from her aura, giving the twin's secret power away.]]
* TwinTelepathy: [[spoiler:An ability they developed over time. However they prefer to keep it secret as such ability would be considered witchcraft in their covenant.]]
** Turns out [[spoiler: It ''is'' witchcraft albeit ones they developed subconciously.]]
* ValleyGirl: Marie tends to talk and act like this.


[[folder:Jane Jackson]]
Another one of Sisters of Mercy. She seem to be the most normal sisters among the bunch.
* BerserkButton: Hurting anyone she loves [[spoiler: especially if it's Olga.]]
* DanceBattler: Illustrations from Yamino's Tumblr seem to suggest this.
* FunnyAfro: What she's hiding under her habit.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: Apparently. When Azi seemingly attacked Olga, her afro suddenly poofed up and made her hair much more wild. A ''Missing Moments'' story confirms this as in the past, after an argument with Olga, her unrestrained power caused her hair to frizz.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She's willing to talk a situation down before going into action.
* {{Sarashi}}: Uses the bra version.
* SecretRelationship: [[spoiler: With Olga.]] Course the other nuns catch on pretty quickly but say nothing out of respect for them.
* TheLeader: Of the search party tracking Claire's group.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: Part witch on her mother's side. In her case, a Weatherwitch, which would explain why her hair poofs up with electricity when under distress. However her mother was part of the peaceful fraction.]]
* TokenMinority: The only black nun in the covenant though her aunt was among the refugees staying near there.



Another teacher and nun. Mentor and Parental figure to Rosalie and Marie.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/index.php Saved a young Clarie from a monster with nothing but a tree branch!]]
* BishieSparkle: A humorous variant.
* GenderBlenderName: "Oscar" is a male name, though it's also an obvious ShoutOut to Lady Oscar from ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles''.
* MamaBear: Very protective of Clarie, Roaslie and Marie when they were kids.
* ParentalSubstitute: To the twins, she even proclaims as such [[spoiler: during her argument with Hanabi.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=207 Oh yeah, she TOTALLY didn't know they were there.]]
* TechnicalPacifist: Like Jackson she hates violence and wants to find a peaceful solution before resorting to action.
* TheReveal: During the stop in the hot springs she's revealed to be a [[spoiler: {{Transsexual}}]].


!! Helsing Branch

A group of nuns that take their monster hunting [[VanHelsingHateCrime a bit too seriously]]. [[spoiler: Olga was a member with them before transferring to the Sisters of Mercy.]]


One of the Helsing nuns, known for being excessively violent in her pursuit of witchcraft.
* {{Expy}}: Based on a combination of Jonah Hex and Van Helsing.
* BodyHorror: The right side of her face.
* KnightTemplar: A very hardcore one. She's dead set on "purging" evil which to her is anyone with the potential to become witches even if they have no malicious intent. Case in point [[spoiler: she burned down a fellow abbey just because she heard there were people who could use magic within it. Despite the fact that there were ''kids'' staying there.]] No wonder Olga and Jackson dread her.
* HangingJudge: Her introduction panel even showcased her prepping some gallows.
* LackOfEmpathy: Even if she is trying to get witches, she won't hesitate to kill innocents or sympathizers in pursuit of her targets.
* LoveIsAWeakness: Firmly believes this and while she doesn't express often, she mocks Olga for this reason.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: Has very high energia (basically this world's equivalent of ki) that she sensed the conflict with Hanabi from miles away.


!! Witches

The [[spoiler: supposedly]] natural enemies within this comic's world. They were beaten back following a war but some are still out there in hiding. A few are neutral and just wish to live in peace but of course there are others who either have a grudge against monster hunters (not without justification considering many of their homes were destroyed by them) or are still doing their evil practices.


A seemingly normal bar worker that a few of the tracking Sisters of Mercy encounter. It turns out he's a Wolf Witch.
* BerserkButton: Don't touch his dog. Also nuns, especially if they're monster hunters.
* HappilyAdopted: Played with. His clan was wiped out by Witch Hunters, and he was taken in by another clan. But while the clan leaders see,treat,and love him like their own son, his bullying "sister" Azi makes it her business to make him feel inferior and constantly tell him that they aren't really his family.
* InTheHood: In his Witch outfit.
* LeeroyJenkins: His over-zealousness revealed that the Wolf Witches clan was still alive to the nuns, which forced his pack to relocate. To add insult to injury, his pack was a ''peaceful'' division of Wolf Witches. So he wound up putting his whole family in danger for a petty grudge which the leaders rightly chastise him for.
* ShoutOut: His design, both physically and clothing-wise, is a deliberate reference to Ezio from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII''


[[folder: Azi]]

Lupo's sister.


* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler: Offers to heal Olga from the poison slowly killing her. But in exchange she must not hunt Wolf Witches ever again or she'll turn into what she fears most.]]
* HairTriggerTemper: Always seems itching for a fight and nearly pummeled Lupo over an accidental scratch during their arguing.
* InTheHood: A red one.
* {{Jerkass}}: Constantly puts down Lupo and keeps reminds him that he's an outsider in their clan. [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=410 Her introduction to the search party nuns likewise]] [[http://www.sisterclaire.com/comic.php?id=411 wasn't the most subtle of entrances]] considering her leaders (i.e mother and father) specifically ''told her'' to find and protect them.
* JerkassHasAPoint: It ''was'' Lupo's fault that the clan was forced to relocate due to his need for vengeance. She also chastises him that he should've took into consideration his family as well before doing the act.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting : A trait of the wolf witches which allow her to change into a normal and hybrid wolf forms.

[[folder: Hanabi]]

A witch introduced in a ''Missing Moments'' story. She's the first one [[spoiler: who noticed Rosalie and Marie ability to use magic and attempted to take them away from the nuns.]]


* AffablyEvil: Debatable on the evil part but she does starts off well mannered and speaking nicely to the nuns when she comes across the abby [[spoiler: But after finding out the twins can use magic, tries to take them by force rather then talking it out with the nuns. Even when Oscar pleas with them, she refuses and knocks her away.]]
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Fitting considering she's a witch.
* ForYourOwnGood: [[spoiler: She claims the nuns will eventually turn on the twins when they find out they have magic or teach them that witches are bad, hence why she should take them away. Oscar argues to the contrary but Hanabi refuses to relent. It's only until speaking with Catherine does she finally agree and that's ''only'' because she's a fellow witch.]]
* GreenThumb: Seems to specialize in plant magic.
* HairDecorations: A head band with a antler sticking out of it [[spoiler: it apparently belonged to the Witch Queen]].
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: Arguing that taking the twins away will prevent the nuns from proclaiming witches are evil. Yet is ''exactly proving the nuns right'' by forcibly kidnapping the twins from Oscar who considers them her daughters then nearly killing Oscar when she tries to stop them.]]
* InTheHood: Noticing a pattern here? In this case [[http://i.imgur.com/cZIVoMv.png A purple cloak]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler:Uses a claim that magical children are in danger at the abbeys as one of the reasons for taking the twins away. Turns out that she was entirely correct with that one]].
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: Gets this reaction when she realizes Oscar is a loved one of Catherine and the latter isn't pleased that she nearly killed her. To the point Catherine levitates the horn at Hanabi's throat and tells her to leave or else.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: From a certain point of view [[spoiler: Catherine states the Witch Queen just wanted peace for both her kind and the nuns. What Hanabi's doing is the ''exact opposite''.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She's just trying to look after her own kind but seems unwilling to compromise with anyone who isn't a witch and starchily believes all nuns will kill them without remorse. [[spoiler: This is rather ironic when it's revealed later that many of the Sisters of Mercy can likewise use magic. She does have a point about the twins being in danger when it's revealed that the Helsing Sister Abraham had burned down an abbey with magick children.]]

[[folder: The Witch Queen]]

The leader of the witch faction during the rebellion, who was killed just before the end of the war. Very little has been revealed about her so far, other than she and [[spoiler: Catherine]] are connected somehow.


* BigBad: According to the nuns....
* BigGood: ...However, the witches think of her reverentially, with Hanabi calling her 'The Bright One.'
* EvilRedhead: Apparently had bright, long red hair and horns, which gave her the nickname of 'Witchdevil' amongst the nuns.
* HornedHumanoid: From what little has been revealed she apparently had horns, [[spoiler: and Hanabi wound up with a piece of one of them after she was killed.]]
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: [[spoiler: In the Missing Moments comics, Catherine states that all she ever wanted was peace between witches and nuns. Most of the nuns don't seem to share her opinion, if Hanabi is to be believed.]]
* TheGhost: Hasn't made an appearance in the comic so far.
* ThePromisedLand: She helped to found Eden, a refuge for Witches during the war.
