Here is a list of the main characters from ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned''. The [[http://www.sdamned.com comic's website]] features an FAQ and fact sheets on each of the species depicted in the story.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: The Protagonists]]
[[WMG:Rhea Snaketail]]
A JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jakkai, with a less than healthy skepticism regarding anything supernatural. The story kicks off after her death.
----
* ArbitrarySkepticism: In spades. It's all but spelled out that this is part of the reason she ended up in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Despite that, she holds on to it after her return to Medius.
* BackFromTheDead: WordOfGod has confirmed that she is alive again.
* CoolBigSis: Agrees to take this role for Buwaro. Later she does the same for Kieri.
* DeadToBeginWith: As noted, the story begins with her arriving in the afterlife.
* DeadpanSnarker: Frequently and often, mostly directed at Kieri.
* DishingOutDirt: Her Earth Spike spell.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sassy and rude, but she does go out of her way to do the right thing.
* MeaningfulName: As with all Jakkai, her last name states something about her appearance. In this case, it's her long tail.
* ScarsAreForever: She has a scar in the place where she was stabbed, on her chest.

[[WMG:Buwaro [[spoiler:Elexion]]]]
The less than intelligent demon given charge of Rhea during her stay in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Starts off insufferably cute and naive, but slowly matures as the comic progresses.
----
* BreathWeapon: Like all Fire Demons, though he rarely uses it, likely because his isn't very potent.
* ChildhoodBrainDamage: Buwaro's frequent blows to the head (failed rock catches) might go some way to explain his lack of intelligence, but there are other factors, such as [[spoiler:damage to his egg before birth and being left alone for long periods of time]].
* CuteLittleFangs
** MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: When he opens his mouth a bit wider.
* [[CuteMonsterGirl Cute Monster Boy]]
* TheDitz: Initially. He's become much sharper over the course of the story, though he still has some Ditz moments.
* FishOutOfWater: Very much so, although he's somewhat better about it than he used to be.
* HappilyAdopted: More after the fact. He was too young to know [[spoiler:Darius, the angel who protected him, Iratu and Sakido]]. But when Kieri read the diary [[spoiler:Darius]] had kept (it was written in the Angelic language, which Buwaro and Rhea didn't know but supposedly Sakido somehow did), and the group realized [[spoiler:some of]] the lengths he went to for their sake, Buwaro came to see him as his father.
** Right before they escaped Hell and she died, Sakido asked Rhea to be the big sister for Buwaro that she never was.
* HeroicSacrifice: Attempts to pull one off for Kieri's sake. Fortunately, he was able to recover.
* InvisibleParents: [[spoiler:They were both killed during the war.]]
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Demons punish the dead (usually by torture) for the sins they committed during life. The cruelest thing he's ever done on purpose was stomp on Rhea's tail. [[spoiler:He even asked Death (who was actually Darius in disguise) if this was ok before he did it.]] Rhea proceeded to beat him up in return.
* NeverLearnedToRead: Didn't have much opportunity to, growing up all alone in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Though Kieri is currently teaching him.
* PlayingWithFire: He's a fire demon, so this is natural. Of course, he's still learning how to control it.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: In fact, it's technically his default personality ([[spoiler:he was even born that way]]). It's only due to [[spoiler:Darius's medallion]] that he has a more normal self.

[[WMG:Kieri "Snowy" Suizahn]]
A young angel currently lost in Medius. She's socially awkward, due to her troubled upbringing. Despite this, she's the most competent of the three when it comes to combat.
----
* BalefulPolymorph: Toski turned her into a snow bunny, though it wasn't applied properly and she has some control over it.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Although normally sweet and shy, she does lose her temper from time to time. Also, she's the only one of the protagonists (exempting Buwaro's SuperpoweredEvilSide) to have intentionally killed someone in a fight.
* CuteBruiser: That sword of hers isn't for opening letters...
* HealingHands: When Buwaro is dying after [[HeroicSacrifice taking an energy attack from a Seraph intended for her]], she desparately [[http://www.sdamned.com/2010/01/01172010/ tries to use healing magic on him]], though she has little experience with it. The way she uses it makes it look like a MagicalDefibrillator, too. Miraculously, she succeeds at reviving him.
* AnIcePerson: Her preferred method of magic.
* MakingASplash: Used less often than her ice powers, but she still has this.
* ShrinkingViolet: Due to her upbringing. While she has opened up much more around Buwaro and Rhea, she still tends towards this around other people.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Subverted, as her hair, like all angels, started out white. She was required to dye it blue as part of her uniform.

[[WMG:Crunky]]
A rare golden wyvern.
----
* AnimalsNotToScale: In-universe, Crunky is unusually small for a dragon.
* FemaleMonsterSurprise: Although it's not that big of a deal, a Khamega hoping to buy Crunky is able to easily tell that it's a girl, even though Kieri had no idea.
* TeamPet: Belongs to Kieri, given to her by Buwaro.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Humans]]
[[WMG:Seymour Sinclair]]
Another denizen of the Ring of the Slightly Damned, he's been trying to swim across the River Styx to Heaven for quite some time.
----
* ImpossibleTask: He certainly hasn't made any progress swimming the River Styx.

[[WMG:Heathcliff "Cliff" Sinclair]]
A fairly laid-back man, who has traveled around and seen more things than pretty much everyone else in the cast who isn't a god put together.
----
* BalefulPolymorph: Was a victim to one in his past, similar to Kieri's.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Heathcliff isn't in favor of Buwaro's relationship with Kieri, but it's not based on malice or prejudice. Instead, he [[http://www.sdamned.com/2009/05/05222009/ points]] [[http://www.sdamned.com/2009/05/05312009/ out]] several realistic ([[BrutalHonesty if stern]]) reasons why their relationship is unlikely to work out.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Somewhat more jerkish than Rhea, but still is willing to fight to [[PapaWolf protect his friends and family]].
* PalsWithJesus: Subverted. Cliff knows several supernatural beings due to his travels, but when it comes to [[PhysicalGod the guardians]] themselves, [[NayTheist he prefers very little contact with them]].
* PlayingWithFire: Buwaro is but a candle to this man's blowtorch.

[[WMG:Miranda Sinclair]]
Cliff's wife, and much nicer than he is.
----
* UsefulNotes/{{Roma|ni}}: She has many elements of the archetype, despite the story not taking place on Earth.

[[WMG:Samantha "Sammy" Kailum]]
The niece of Cliff and Miranda. Very curious and outgoing, but naturally a little naive due to being a child.
----
* CheerfulChild: Very much so.
* HappilyAdopted: The fact that her parents are dead doesn't really affect her, and she enjoys traveling with her aunt and uncle.
* PlayingWithFire: Not at the level of Buwaro or Cliff, but she can toss small fireballs around.

[[WMG:Jake "J" Thorndyke]]
A lazy man who works odd jobs, and who happens to be one of Rhea's old friends.
----
* ButtMonkey: Don't get started on how many times this guy has gotten screwed over.
* CutenessOverload: His reaction to seeing Crunky.
* PlayingWithFire: It's implied that he's even worse at controlling his fire magic than Buwaro, and is the reason why he lost most of his jobs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Angels]]
[[WMG:Darius Elexion]]
One of the most important characters in the backstory of the comic, Darius was an angel who, after ending up in Hell, basically started raising Iratu, Sakido, and Buwaro before vanishing in an effort to protect them.
----
* StraightGay: It's only brought up once and has little to no significance to the story.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: A heck of a lot of it, regarding [[spoiler:his continued existence as Death]].
* [[spoiler: GodJob: Hi there, Death.]]
* PapaWolf: He went to incredible lengths to make sure his three children, [[spoiler:despite being demons]], were kept safe.
* PromotionToParent: [[spoiler:He cares for Iratu, Sakido, and later Buwaro when he finds each of them in Hell, and the recent warring between the angels and demons has killed their parents.]]

[[WMG:Kazai Suizahn]]
Kieri's twin brother, who is less studious and more adventurous than his sister. The current goal of the protagonists is to locate him. As of [[http://www.sdamned.com/2013/10/10192013/ this strip]], they have.
----
* AnAxToGrind: He has one.
* BalefulPolymorph: [[spoiler: It turns out he and Kieri [[http://www.sdamned.com/2014/03/03152014/ have something in common]] after all.]]
* FantasticRacism: We don't know the extent yet, since he only just appeared, but he seems to be prejudiced against both Demons and Medians.
* FishOutOfWater: To say he's shocked by how St. Curtis is a TruceZone for Angels and Demons would be an understatement.
* HotBlooded: His first reaction to seeing [[spoiler: Moonshade and Melli fighting]] is to ask Kieri who he should attack.
* SiblingYinYang: Implied. While Kieri was going around helping people while trying to find him, he [[spoiler:brought down an avalanche to block a mountain pass for some reason, and got arrested. The two also apparently had an argument prior to getting separated.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: His hairdo is an inverted version of his sister's, being mostly white with blue edges. Just like with Kieri, it's probably dyed.

[[WMG:Denevol]]
A wind-aligned elderly angel, and a veteran of the Great War. Does not take well to the idea of angels and demons getting along.
----
* BadassInDistress: He is currently being held prisoner by Iratu and Co. for unknown reasons.
* CategoryTraitor: Accuses Kieri of this for her friendship with Buwaro.
* ShockAndAwe: He's not afraid to use it on other angels, either.

[[WMG:Sanjulo]]
Kazai's fiend & partner. He's been traveling with Kazai of-panel while the protagonists were looking for the latter.
----
* FantasticRacism: He seems to be similarly biased against Demons as Kazai is. His viewpoint on Medians has yet to be established.
* KnifeNut: Wields two knives, each with a large blade and two smaller ones.
* PlayingWithFire: He's a fire-aligned angel.

[[WMG:Verammi]]
A seraph, currently in St. Curtis for unknown reasons. She's also apparently Kazai's and Sanjulo's superior.
----
* ShipperOnDeck: Of all people, she seems to approve of Buwaro and Kieri's relationship.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Demons]]
[[WMG:Sakido]]
Buwaro's older "sister", she's a wind demon with a penchant for bad poetry. Killed in the process of flying Buwaro and Rhea out of Hell.
----
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:In spades towards Buwaro, for abandoning him when he was little.]]
* CallToAgriculture: Spends a good part of her time raising bonsai trees.
* FacingTheBulletsOneLiner: "I see. So it really did turn out this way. '''[[LetsGetDangerous So be it.]]'''"
* GiftedlyBad: Her poetry.
* HeroicSacrifice: Does so to ensure that Buwaro and Rhea reach Medius.
* KilledOffForReal
* MissingMom: [[spoiler:Like Buwaro's parents, she was killed in the war.]]
* ShellShockedVeteran: Has a number of elements of this, which is part of why she lives in the Ring of the Slightly Damned.
* ShockAndAwe: Her main powers.

[[WMG:Iratu]]
Buwaro's "big brother", a gigantic earth demon who loves to drink.
----
* BewareMyStingerTail: His tail is a cross between this and a SinisterScythe.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Despite obviously being very strong physically, it was implied he was normally too drunk and happy-go-lucky to be a major threat. [[spoiler: Fast forward to TheReveal that he and his cohorts have slaughtered an entire village without any trouble...]]
* LargeAndInCharge: Physically the biggest character in the series, and he [[spoiler:holds the rank of general among the forces of the villains.]]
* {{Sizeshifter}}: Can do this if he takes off his pendant, shrinking down to about six feet tall.
* UnstoppableRage: What happens when you try to wake him while he's sleeping off his drink.

[[WMG:Lazuli]]
A water demon who, along with her partner Talus, captured and tormented Kieri for a time. Despite that, she is determined to kill Kieri in revenge for her killing Talus.
----
* AvengingTheVillain: Her current main goal.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Despite her cruel nature, she was extremely distraught when Kieri killed her partner.
* EvilCounterpart: Seems to be shaping up to be a demonic one for Kieri.
* AnIcePerson: Her main power.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Is currently going on one in pursuit of Kieri.

[[WMG:Talus]]
An earth demon who had captured Kieri along with Lazuli. He's killed shortly after encountering Rhea and Buwaro.
----
* ALoadOfBull: He definitely evokes a minotaur-like image.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: His death is so downplayed that ''Soprano of Time'' even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it.
--> '''Talus' Ghost''': ''[crying]'' Nobody cares that I'm dead! I've been forgotten! I'm just-- ''[is immediately shot in the throat by Kieri]''

[[WMG:Tsavo]]
A wind demon who is one of the main villains.
----
* AffablyEvil: He is unfailingly polite, even when discussing topics such as murder and torture.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Sort of. He's mentioned by Azurai over 300 pages and '''5 years''' before his first actual appearance.
* PragmaticVillainy: A recurring gag in the series is have Tsavo critizing Azurai for his StupidEvil tendence of killing humans [[ForEvulz for giggles]], in desregard of their potencial usefulness.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Azurai's Red.
* ShockAndAwe: Only used so far to [[AmusingInjuries torment Azurai]].

[[WMG:Azurai]]
A fire demon who is one of the main villains.
----
* BerserkButton: His horns, apparently.
* ButtMonkey: Plays this role among the villains, getting beat up frequently by Tsavo [[spoiler: and Iratu]].
* HotBlooded: Loves to kill people and tends to get ahead of the others' plans.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Tsavo's Blue.
* SirSwearsALot: So, so much. Almost ''everything'' that comes out of his mouth is either a PrecisionFStrike or a ClusterFBomb.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jakkai]]
[[WMG:Ramirez Bloodeyes]]
Rhea's best friend, who was there when she died. Hasn't appeared outside of flashbacks.
----
* MeaningfulName: Refers to his red eyes.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: A subversion, as he was supposedly good-natured.

[[WMG:Mr. Moonshade]]
A Jakkai of unknown origin who seems to be working with the villains. Not much else is known about him. [[spoiler:Its been revealed that he seeks to murder the Guardians and steal their powers, as well as to find an artifact he simply calls "The Egg".]]
----
* DishingOutDirt: Like Rhea, he can use the Earth Spike spell.
* EvilLaugh: Tends to indulge in this.
* LastOfHisKind: Thinks he is the last of his bloodline. [[spoiler: Of course, he doesn't know that Rhea, who is implied to be of the same bloodline, is no longer dead and has returned to Medius.]]
* MeaningfulName: Refers to the twin moons of Medius, which happen to be the same color as his eyes.
* [[spoiler:VoluntaryShapeshifting: He can take the shape of the Guardian Moku the Snake, which is implied to be due to killing him.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Divine Entities]]
[[WMG:Gaia]]
One of the three great gods, matron of the angels and embodiment of good. Revealed to have been missing for several years.
----
* BigGood: How the inhabitants of Medius mostly perceive her.

[[WMG:Syndel]]
The second of the three great gods, creator of the demons and embodiment of evil. Also missing.
----
* DrivenByEnvy: Was definitely not happy to find out that Gaia got most of the credit for creating Medius. This led to the Great War.

[[WMG:Death]]
The guide of souls to the afterlife, he's the only one of the three great gods who has appeared so far.
----
* DontFearTheReaper: Despite his dark dragon-like appearance, he's fairly friendly, so this seems to be in effect. [[spoiler:Of course, that's because it's not really Death...]]
* HaveYouSeenMyGod: He's one of the three great gods, while the other two have gone missing. [[spoiler:He went looking for the other two and promptly disappeared as well]].

[[WMG:Cerberus]]
A servant of Death, this fearsome dog guards the gates to Hell. Despite traditionally being three-headed, it apparently is missing the middle head currently. [[spoiler: Later revealed the the middle head, known as "Blue", is part of Darius's disguise as Death.]]
----
* MultipleHeadCase: Each head has a distinct personality. The red one is mostly silent and the StraightMan, while the green head seems to be more HotBlooded. [[spoiler: The blue head is friendly yet somewhat naive.]]

[[WMG:Toski]]
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Toski the Rabbit sided with Hell during the Great War. She is responsible for Kieri's curse.
----
* BalefulPolymorph: Kieri's curse. Apparently it didn't work quite as well as intended.
* TheTrickster: Apparently has no problem taking a human form and stealing from shops, then cursing anyone who tries to stop her.

[[WMG:Siara]]
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Siara the Lynx took the side of Heaven during the Great War. Apparently Cliff has some connection to her, as his power takes on her form.
----
* PlayingWithFire: She's one of the three guardians of fire. And judging from what Cliff did, she probably has this power.

[[WMG:Meeros]]
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Meeros the Mortori Bird is an...interesting character, to say the least. He once cursed Cliff with a similar curse to Kieri's.
----
* CleverCrows: Or [[CallARabbitASmeerp mortori birds]], anyways. They're his symbol/patron animals, and he's very protective of them. They used to be viewed in the standard way; [[{{MagpiesAsPortents}} bad luck, omens of death and war]], etc., but Meeros put a lot of hard work into his godly PR, so now they are viewed as symbols of love and life.
* TheGadfly: He's not a bad sort, but he definitely gets a kick out of messing with Cliff. (He also tries it with Buwaro, but Buwaro [[ComicallyMissingThePoint misses the point]].)
* GentlemanSnarker: Manages to be polite while still throwing sarcastic quips around (mostly aimed at Cliff).


[[WMG: Melli]]
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Melli the Fire Bee sided with Heaven during the Great War. Is something of a patron to the city of St. Curtis.
----
* CrappyCarnival: Runs a rigged archery game booth.
* GoodIsNotNice: Some versions of the St. Curtis legend have her setting the Jakkai's tree on fire to teach the two races a lesson. And she's a bit of a jerk to Buwaro and Kieri.

[[WMG: Moku]]
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, taking the form of a giant snake. [[spoiler:Was murdered by Mr. Moonshade before the events of the comic.]]

* [[spoiler:PosthumousCharacter]]
* SnakeTalk

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Other Characters]]
[[WMG:Thadius]]
Buwaro's beloved pet rock. Supposedly a girl.
----
* GagBoobs: Perhaps, in Buwaro's mind. He mentions that they're much bigger than Rhea's, at least.
* ImaginaryFriend: Until Rhea showed up, was pretty much Buwaro's ''only'' friend.
* MeaningfulName: The name sounds similar to [[spoiler:Darius]].
* PutOnABus: Done intentionally, as Buwaro makes real friends and gradually forgets about Thadius.

[[WMG:Duster]]
A somewhat lecherous fairy who happens to be Cliff's best friend and traveling companion.
----
* TheCasanova: Goes to great lengths to hook up with female fairies.
* FairyCompanion: Cliff's.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Cliff. They go back and forth, repeatedly tormenting each other. However, when they fight together...
* YouNoTakeCandle: Has a mild case of this, due to poor human language skills (which are notably better than those of most fairies).
[[/folder]]
