Official title is ''AR∀GO: City of London Police's Special Crimes Investigator'', but most often shortened to just ''Arago'' by fans. The story centers around two twins, Arago and Ewan, whose parents were slaughtered by a SerialKiller named the Patchman. Years later, the vengeful Arago crosses paths with Ewan, who has since become a police officer, just as blood begins to flow again in the streets of London.

After facing him a second time, Arago ends up with the Patchman's supernatural abilities. Instead of [[{{Wangst}} wangsting]], he joins the London PD and becomes partners with [[BadassGrandpa Joe Sullivan]]. TheyFightCrime.

Oh, and the powers he inherited cause anything not made out of metal or plastic to decay if they touch him. And all sorts of nasty demons are showing up in the city, [[InvisibleToNormals that only he can see.]] And he's under suspicion of being the Patchman. Fun Fun Fun.

'''Contains Examples of:'''
* ActionGirl : Rio
* AngstySurvivingTwin : Arago.
* AllMythsAreTrue : Averted. While some mythical creatures are real, some of them (such as werewolves) are just that- myths.
** [[spoiler: Except they aren't. [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Sort of.]]]]
* [[spoiler:AndTheAdventureContinues]]
* ArmorPiercingSlap : Subverted. Rio hurts her hand because of Arago's power.
* ArtificialLimbs: [[spoiler: Oz in the final chapter]]
* AwesomenessByAnalysis : Joe.
* AxeCrazy : The Patchman, obviously.
** The red hats are literally this, using giant axes to kill.
* BackFromTheDead : The Patchman, Ewan.
* BadAssGrandpa : Joe Joe Joe...
* BadAssNormal : Joe [[spoiler: at first]], Ewan, Rio [[spoiler: at first]]. And now [[spoiler: Oz.]]
* BadAssBiker : Arago.
* BadDreams : Not really surprising, considering what Arago's been through...
* BadLiar : Whenever Arago's tugging at his ear and, sometimes, looking away from who he's talking with, it's a sure sign that he's lying. Rio's definitely figured out that he's been hiding a lot from her lately thanks to him not knowing that he always does this when he lies.
* BadPowersGoodPeople : Arago, of course. Although how bad Brionac really is is debatable.
* BagOfHolding : The leprechaun has one.
* BatmanGambit
* BeamSpam : Basically what the White Horseman's power boils down to; he can make just about anything into a projectile, and in large quantities.
* TheBeastmaster: The Pale Horseman, though which type he falls under is unclear.
* BigBadFriend : Seth Stringer, though he's very open about his intentions to take Brionac from Arago one day.
* BigBrotherInstinct : Both Ewan and Arago show signs of this.
* BigDamnHeroes : Joe, multiple times. [[spoiler:Seth]] has done it as well.
* BlessedWithSuck : Arago's powers are slowly killing him and will do the same to anyone he touches if he doesn't let go after a while.
* BlowYouAway: Seth/Orc's power.
* BodyHorror : Anyone who the Black Horseman decides to "change."
* BraidsOfAction : The Red Horseman.
* ButtMonkey : The Galley Beggar.
* CameBackWrong : Ewan.
* CelticMythology
* ChainSawGood : Unless you happen to be named Rupert Shannon, in which case it is very, very bad.
* ChivalrousPervert : Joe.
* ClothingDamage: Arago starts his battles fully clothed and ends most of them half naked. The Red Horseman's wardrobe isn't treated kindly either.
* CombatPragmatist : Many characters have shades of this, but [[spoiler: Oswell Miller]] is even acknowledged as this in series.
* ColdSniper: The White Horseman.
* CoolOldGuy : Joe, full stop.
* CursedWithAwesome : The Patchman's powers.
* DarkAndTroubledPast : Arago and Ewan, Joe, Oz , and ''all four'' Horsemen qualify. Practically everyone in the series has this trope in their backstory.
* DeathByOriginStory : Arago and Ewan's parents. Ewan joins them by the end of chapter one. [[{{BackFromTheDead}} Sort of.]]
* DefeatMeansFriendship : The Galley Beggar.
* EldritchAbomination: The Black Horseman's power creates these.
** [[spoiler:The Gogmagog qualify, too.]]
* TheFairFolk : Faeries are known to exist. So far, of the few kinds shown (including redcaps, leprechauns, gremlins and goblins), only a few fit the bill.
* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: Ewan dies.
* FreudianExcuse : All four Horseman have this, which is why they work for Patchman to end the world to begin with. In the order they were revealed:
** [[spoiler:The Pale Horseman was a musician whose band got into illegal dealings. He took the fall and went to jail, but when he got out, they abandoned him. He believes himself to be the only one he can rely on in the world.]]
** [[spoiler:The Black Horseman saved an ailing patient with a terminal disease, only to have her commit suicide shortly after. He loses faith in "hope."]]
** [[spoiler:The White Horseman was a soldier whose close comrades were killed by friendly fire, and the pilot escapes because he's the son of an official. The White Horseman loses his faith in "good" and "evil" because of it.]]
** [[spoiler:The Red Horseman's mother had an abusive boyfriend, who beat and nearly killed her. Scarlet planned to kill him so she can live happily with her mother, but finds him dead already. While trying to burn the evidence, she's discovered by her mother. She is blamed by her jealous mother and nearly strangled to death. She begins to hate all humanity.]]
* FriendlyEnemy : Seth Stringer.
* GameFace : The gremlins. [[spoiler: Subverted by the fact that they never meant to cause any real harm to the protagonist or the boy they were originally chasing; they were just hungry and wanted candy.]]
* [[{{ABoyAndHisX}} A Girl And Her X]] : Coco and Colo.
* GoodScarsEvilScars : Ewan has a scar from when he defended his brother Arago, [[spoiler:who now has his arm.]]
* GroinAttack : Arago really didn't deserve that.
* HeroicSacrifice : [[spoiler:Ewan.]]
** And now [[spoiler: Seth followed by Joe.]]
* HollywoodAtheist : Subverted. While Joe is openly an atheist he doesn't act bitter or depressed, though his stance about the supernatural and God is made pretty clear:
--> '''Joe''': Things like demons don't actually exist. This is just the work of a human who is like a demon.
** As of chapter 45, his concept of the world may well be changing.
* HornedHumanoid : The Red Horseman's bangs spike up into horns when using her fire powers against Arago.
* HorsemenOfTheApocalypse : We've been introduced to all four horsemen by chapter 55.
* HotBlooded : Arago. Gets called out for it repeatedly.
* ImprobableAimingSkills : Rio again.
* InstantRunes : Could be what appears around Seth's head. [[spoiler:Joe and in the end, Coco,]] has to manually create his own using a staff.
* InvisibleToNormals : Many of the nasty beasties that Arago fights.
* LittleMissBadass : The Red Horseman, Scarlet Rabi.
* MadeOfIron : The Red Horseman gets blasted with laser beams, crushed with air pressure, hit with an air and fire combo attack directly followed by a Brionac-powered punch, engulfed in tear gas, shot with [[TrickArrow Bomb Arrows]], is hit with a falling ceiling and impaled on a Unicorn's horn. It's only enough to make her retreat with a few bruises.
* {{Masquerade}} : Faeries are quite real-according to the Galley Beggar, many live among humans. Also, Arago and his powers.
* MeaningfulName : The Red Horseman's name is '''Scarlet''' Rabi.
* MrExposition : Galley Beggar.
* MsFanservice : Rio and Scarlet Rabi.
* MurderTheHypotenuse : [[spoiler: Scarlet's mother tries to do this to her, which also makes this an attempted OffingTheOffspring.]]
* OddCouple : Arago and Rio, Joe or Ewan.
* PapaWolf: Do ''not'' mess with Coco, because Joe ''will'' find you.
* PolarOppositeTwins: Arago and Ewan.
* PlayingWithFire: The Red Horseman's power.
* PowerGlows
* PsychoElectro : The Pale Rider Lucian most definitely qualifies, being more than willing to kill off a whole train of uninvolved people just to kill Arago and take Brioniac.
* PoisonousPerson : Poor Arago...
* PowerIncontinence : Brionac would be nice if it would turn off once in a while.
** [[spoiler: After being drugged by Seth and the cult at his school, Arago was unable to use Brionac for a short while. It's unknown if it was just due to his inability to focus due to the drugs or if the power turned off.]]
* RazorFloss: Part of Oz's arsenal.
* SelfMadeOrphan : The Red Horseman.
* ShellShockedSenior : Joe.
* ShoutOut : To William Blake, of all people.
** The fact that the protagonist is named Hunt and is a detective at the Met, and that Ewan is wearing a camel coat in the first chapter is a shout out to AshesToAshes.
** [[spoiler:The Black Horseman at one point fuses his hand [[Franchise/EvilDead with a chainsaw]] ]]
* ShownTheirWork : Did they just quote William Blake?
** All of the powers named so far in the series are references to Celtic mythology, the myths of the British Isles, especially Brionac, the Spear of Lugh, also known as the Spear of God.
* SiblingYinYang : Arago and Ewan.
* {{Sidekick}} : [[NonHumanSidekick The Galley Beggar monster...]] [[HeelFaceTurn somehow.]]
* SmallGirlBigGun : Well, she hasn't actually used a gun yet, but the impromptu cleaver that the Red Horseman creates gives off the same kind of look: small girl, giant weapon.
* StaticStunGun : As a "Slider" (electric person), Lucian is able to use his power in this manner.
* SuperStrength: Arago and the Red Horseman. The former has enough strength to catch a boat that has been thrown at him while the latter casually throws police cars around.
** Taken to further extremes in the chapter 71, where the Red Horseman uses the ''minute hand from Big Ben like a sword.''
* TookALevelInBadass: In the last chapter, [[spoiler:Coco, who now uses her father's weapon, and Rio, who now has full control over the werewolf pelt.]]
* TouchOfDeath : Arago's doesn't turn off. At least it's slow-acting enough that he can briefly touch others without permanently hurting them.
** Also subverted because [[spoiler: Brionac doesn't destroy, it heals. It just has a tendency to heal too much.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood : Arago's candy bars. The horrible coffee may also count.
* TrickArrow: Oz uses arrows tipped with explosives.
* {{Tsundere}} : Rio, Rio, Rio.
* WeakButSkilled : Oz, the man from Albion. Also, [[BadassNormal Joe.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Seth's reason for wanting Brionac and contracting with Orc is that he wants to make a better world.
* ZettaiRyouiki : The Red Horseman.
