!!Noah Maxwell
The main character and AudienceSurrogate, Noah uploads his recordings of his last days with his cousin Milo Asher before his apparent suicide in 2010. Upon noticing the Slender Man in the videos, Noah becomes the target for the monster and his minions, particularly the Observer, recording the encounters and the [[ApocalypticLog mysterious events surrounding his life]]. [[ClusterFBomb He has a tendency to swear a lot when under pressure]].

** DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: He also tries to ''shoot'' the Slender Man. ([[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu It doesn't work]], of course; but he gets points just for ''trying''.)
* DistressedDude: The Collective has a tendency to snatch him in the earlier videos and then release after screwing with his mind after varying amount of time, no matter how much he resists. [[spoiler: He has been avoiding this lately though thanks to the help of Firebrand]].
* [[spoiler: DoomedByCanon: It seems Noah is destined to become Firebrand at some point in the future.]]

!!Milo Asher
Noah's cousin and close friend, Milo was haunted by the Slender Man during the time he visited Noah in 2008. He [[DrivenToSuicide committed suicide]] in 2010, and Noah's inspection of the video recordings he made in 2008 reveal that the Slender Man may have had an influence on the event of Milo's death.

Received treatment from [[EverymanHYBRID Dr. Corenthal]]? Check. Targeted (and possibly driven to suicide) by the Collective? Check and mate.]]

!!Sarah
Noah's friend (and YouTube follower) who invites him to stay with her during Thanksgiving break. However, the influence of the Collective follows, leading to Sarah becoming involved with the Noah's problems for a while.

!!Karl Maxwell
Noah's grandfather on his mother's side. He is from Germany, and speaks little English. He reveals to Noah that he encountered the Slender Man in World War II, and possesses [[spoiler: a journal and knife belonging to dead Nazi Sebastian Kraus, which apparently is the last record of an unknown historic event involving the Slender Man.]]

* RetiredBadass
* SanitySlippage: Mary claimed that he started out fairly sane and normal, only to forget his English and become more crazed and paranoid over time. Noah's mother also stated that he suffers from age-related dementia. However, given the things he witnessed and the strangeness surrounding the family, it's beginning to look like his paranoia is completely justified....
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler: Hides the journal and knife belonging to Sebastian Kraus.]]
* ShellShockedVeteran: Not just because he fought in the war, but because he met the Slender Man.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Refuses to talk to or see Noah for the sake of his own safety.

[[folder:The Collective]]
!!The Collective
A group of powerful proxies who do the Slender Man's dirty work. They each have their own assignments and separate goals. The driving force of the plot involves them needing the journal of Karl Maxwell, as it is the last piece of the puzzle for their plans for Humanity. Tropes applying the Collective as a whole include:

* [[AndIMustScream And We Must Scream]]: It's been implied that joining the Collective is ''not'' a pleasant experience.
* AppropriatedAppellation: They have no names other than the nicknames humans have given them, which they have adopted for the sake of convenience.
* ChessMotifs: Each member is given a chess piece to symbolize their rank.
** The Administrator - [[BigBad The Black King]]
** The Observer - [[TheHeavy The Black Rook]]
** Deadhead - [[TheDragon The Black Knight]]
** Firebrand - [[LightIsNotGood The White King]]
*** [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope This ends up]] {{foreshadowing}} [[LightIsGood his]] HeelFaceTurn]].

* EliteMooks: There are Slenderman's proxies, and then there are ''these'' guys.
* EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily: Subverted. A few lines from the Observer imply that they can't stand each other.
* HiveMind: Although they each still have individual personalities.
* MindRape: They ''love'' doing this to their victims. [[spoiler: And it's implied that they suffer this as well]].
* {{Only Known By Their Nickname}}s: See AppropriatedAppellation
* PaintingTheMedium: They each use a different font.
* [[RealityWarper Reality Warpers]]: Although no two members seem to have the same amount of power.
* [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen They Who Must Not Be Seen]]: So far, the only members whose unobscured faces we've seen are [[spoiler: the Observer (Kevin), Firebrand (Noah), Cursor (Mary Asher), and Mr. Scars (Milo)]].
* [[WasOnceAMan Were Once Humans]]: With the possible exception of the Administrator.

!!The Administrator[=/=]SlenderMan
The EldritchAbomination himself and BigBad of the series. As usual, he is stalking children -- and, in this case Milo and Noah --but takes a backseat to allow his minion, the Observer, to keep an eye on Noah. He often pops up to scare Noah, and possesses animated CombatTentacles.

* PsychicPowers: Can cause mind screws, including (but not limited to) turning ordinary locations into AlienGeometries and [[TimeMaster manipulating time]].

!!The Observer/[[spoiler:Kevin Haas]]
More or less the main antagonist of the series, this mysterious and shadowy figure delights in manipulating Noah for his own purposes. He is recognizable by his distinctive thick glasses, long hair and [[SlasherSmile malevolent grin]]. Beyond that, what he looks like is unknown, as he has only ever been seen in {{rotoscoping}}. [[spoiler: He is later revealed to be possessing Noah's friend Kevin, who helped translate Karl's German after Noah's first visit to his grandfather.]]

* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive
* TheCracker: The Observer often hijacks Noah's internet accounts to taunt his victim.
* DeadpanSnarker

* IHaveManyNames: The Observer was previously called the Sentinel.

* NightmareFace: Has about three of these.
* PrecisionFStrike: [[spoiler: Does this when Firebrand disrupts his private video to Noah.]]

* TheWallsHaveEyes

!!Firebrand/[[spoiler:Noah Maxwell]]
Firebrand is a member of the Collective who appeared in front of Noah on November 11th, and is recognized for his pinhole eyes and smile. He is called "The Stubborn." [[spoiler: He stops the Observer from taking Noah on 11/11/12 and hijacked the video INTERCEPTION, [[OminousMessageFromTheFuture revealing information about the journal]]. The Livestream Incident reveals that he is Noah, from either the future or a separate timeline.]]

* [[spoiler: {{Antihero}}: Type IV. While he has allied himself with Noah, that doesn't mean he hasn't [[EverymanHYBRID committed terrible acts]] to get to this point]].
* BadassArmFold: At the end of The Live Stream Incident video.
* [[spoiler: BadPowersGoodPeople]]
* [[spoiler: BigDamnHeroes]]
* BlackBeadEyes: Described as "pinhole eyes".
* [[spoiler: ChekhovsGunman]]

* [[spoiler: [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu Did You Just Flip Off the Slender Man?]]: Does this literally as the Administrator is about to collect Noah in his sleep. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It shocks the hell out of him so much that he puts away his]] CombatTentacles [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and tilts his head in confusion]].]]
* {{Determinator}}: As "The Stubborn", he never gave up even after becoming part of the Collective.
* [[spoiler: EnemyMine: To free himself from the Administrator's control, he made an unwilling alliance with [[EverymanHYBRID HABIT]] (who he describes as "a loathsome entity with mutual interests").]]
* FreezeFrameBonus: Like the Observer, he likes leaving hidden messages in Noah's videos, usually in the last frame.
** [[spoiler: At the end of "Extraordinary Circumstances" when Firebrand appears in the doorway to Noah's room, the words "HELLO EVERYBODY" are briefly superimposed over a picture on Noah's desk.]]
* [[spoiler: FutureMeScaresMe: Noah is understandably horrified to learn that Firebrand is a future version of himself who joined the Collective.]]

* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* HaveANiceDaySmile
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn.Maybe.]]
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: So far, the journal that the Collective are after has been the very thing protecting him from their wrath. He intends to have it delivered to Noah.]]

* [[spoiler: MyFutureSelfAndMe]]
* NightmareFace
* PerpetualSmiler

!!Deadhead
A member of the Collective that wears a skull mask and hood. He is known to have followed Sebastian Kraus. He is known as "The Nationalist."

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: He is named after a German term, known as the Nationalist, existed in World War II, stalked Sebastian, and is currently stalking Karl (who also fought in the war).
* TheDragon: Seems to share this role with the Observer. He may even be above the Observer in rank, due to having a higher-ranked Chess piece.
* CoolMask
* InTheHood
* GratuitousGerman: Has only said two words so far (see below). Since he was active in Germany following Sebastian, we'll probably get a lot of this from him when/if he starts talking more.
* JumpScare: Appears in the HAPPYBIRTHDAY video and leaps at the camera, with the words "Auf Wiedersehen" ("goodbye" in German) in his mouth.
* MeaningfulName: Deadhead is a reference to the German term "Totenkopf" which means "death's head". The Totenkopf is symbolised by a skull and was used by the Nazis.
* NightmareFace: Scary enough with the mask. Presumably he is hiding something creepier beneath it.
* SkullForAHead: Actually a CoolMask owned by Deadhead's host.
* WickedCultured: His font looks like cursive handwriting, implying this.

!!Cursor/[[spoiler:Mary Asher]]
Cursor is a female Collective member with long hair and X-shaped bandages over her eyes. Her title is "The Selfish." Noah has noted that she bears a resemblance to both his own mother and Mary Asher. [[spoiler: As of Obituary, it is confirmed that she is indeed Mary.]]

* BlindfoldedVision: Wears x-shaped bandages over her eyes. Notably, large purple crosses have appeared in both TribeTwelve and WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Presumably why she is called The Selfish.
** Series creator Adam Rosner has described her as a "bitch", and it was revealed that her host [[spoiler: Mary Asher sold her son out to the Collective to stave off her own death.]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The first female Proxy in any of the Slender Man stories.

!!Mr. Scars/[[spoiler:Milo Asher]]
Mr. Scars is seen with his hands covering a heavily scarred face. He is called "the one who kills Mary" and "The Burdened", and Mary Asher believed that Noah knew his identity. Noah has mentioned on Twitter that he has had a recurring nightmare about Mr. Scars, finding him vaguely familiar. [[spoiler: "Obituary" confirmed that he's Milo Asher.]]

* AffablyEvil: Seems to hate his own scars, judging by his behavior in a dream Noah had about him.
** [[spoiler: Implied even more in DEUS EX MACHINA when Firebrand reveals Mr. Scars will deliver Milo's diary in a briefcase to Noah. In Obituary, Mr. Scars delivers the briefcase...with the final frame of the video showing a smiling Milo wishing Noah "Good Luck".]]
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: He's Milo revived as a member of the Collective.]]
* HealingFactor: [[spoiler: Subverted in the most horrific fashion: he retains all of the wounds from his suicide, including cuts on both wrists and a ''slit throat''.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* TheGrotesque
* NightmareFace: Presumably hides one behind his hands.
** [[spoiler: "Milo's Tape", however, suggests that he might be hiding his face due to the sorrow and shame of having murdered his own mother.]]
* SerialKillingsSpecificTarget: Destined to murder Mary Asher. [[spoiler: It seems he has fulfilled this destiny.]]
* MonsterSobStory: There's a good reason why he's known as "The Burdened".[[note]] Milo's mother only gave birth to him ''in the first place'' so she could offer him as a sacrifice to the Administrator. He suffered a lifetime of severe psychological problems due to being constantly followed by the Slender Man and his ilk. Then, after an utterly horrific death and resurrection (both of which were orchestrated by forces outside his control), he was [[BrainwashedAndCrazy forced]] to murder his mother in cold blood.[[/note]]

!!Swain
Swain wears an army uniform and smiling theatre mask. Is also called "The Lover." Little is known about him at this time.

* ArmchairMilitary
* BlingOfWar
* TheCasanova: If his reputation as "The Lover" is any indication.
* CoolMask
* MalevolentMaskedMen
* WhiteMaskOfDoom
* WickedCultured: Fancy uniform and a theatre mask? He couldn't be anything else.

!!Persolus
Persolus has the guise of an old man, and is called "the hermit." Persolus is Latin for "quite alone."

* GrumpyOldMan
* IWorkAlone
* LonersAreFreaks

!![[WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID HABIT]]
A malevolent entity who possessed Evan from the [=EverymanHYBRID=] crew, [=HABIT=] is an AxCrazy creature who seems to hate the Slender Man. [[spoiler: So much so that he frees Firebrand from the Slender Man's control and joins forces with him.]]
