    Ava 

Ava Ire

"I used to dream about what it would be like if I could make friends, fall in love, what it would be like to enjoy waking up. I daydreamed about pushing a button that would make life worth living."

Ava hasn't had a very pleasant life considering that she has been possessed by a rather angry demon since birth. Said demon has constantly attempted to either kill, or pressure her into making a "Pact" without any explanation of what it entails. The story begins some time after Ava was separated from her parents and sent to a re-education planet terraformed and run by TITAN Inc.
  • Accidental Pervert: Odin swears up and down that Ava is a Covert Pervert. Not helped when she's smelling people, looking up their shirts and her Limbo Lenses can see through their bodies.note 
  • The Atoner: Considers herself responsible for Maggie's cruelty and as a result refuses to simply leave her to TITAN's followers. She persuades Odin to help her attempt to get Maggie to leave the TITAN base.
  • Back from the Dead: Was brought back to life after she finally formed a pact with Wrathia.
  • Badass Boast: "I'm Ava. Ava Ire. And I CAN'T die. Got it, pal!?"
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Almost as big as her eyes.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Was a dirty blonde before the pact. Seems to switch between having red-toned skin and fire orange with yellow patches depending on her mood.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Funnily enough she starts showing shades of this after she dies.
    Ava: Well that SUCKS because I have no desires! Except maybe to get rid of YOU.
    Wrathia: A lot of things suck at the moment, so you can spare me your newly discovered snarky attitude.

    Maggie 

Maggie Lacivi

"So... Tuls, darling, I need you to work your magic again. Pretty please?"

Another child brought to the re-education planet and one of few children Ava has ever been friends with, although the friendship didn't last long due to Wrathia's tampering. She is odd in her own right and seems to have a few issues about image. She has problems with Odin who she views as a stalker, and is arguably justified in thinking so. She also has an enormous crush on Gil.
  • Ax-Crazy: Not completely but she is definitely showing signs of this. In her Dream World. She crushes a fairy with her hand, kills off a number of flowers (they're alive), throws a portrait on the ground... (The first two aren't actually real but still...) She also began to hit and attempted to strangle Ava, believing that she was an illusion made by Tuls.
    • Even in the real world, she was going to just let Odin and Ava die when the spaceship crashed.
  • Badass: Can stealthily turn her arms into long vines/branches and pick up Odin effortlessly. She then commands him to turn the ship around. When he doesn't follow her orders, she throws him and breaks the control panel.
  • Berserk Button: Don't call her ugly, monstrous, or scary, she will take it out on you.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While they are, for various reasons, hardly innocent, Maggie makes sure to play up Ava and Odin's flaws to Gil and outright lies about her involvement in the ship crashing to insure she stays on his good side.
  • Converting for Love: Maggie decides to enlist as a follower of TITAN not long after she falls for Gil. Note that she doesn't know much about TITAN and has no real interest in the religion itself.
  • Dark Action Girl: While probably not evil, she can be violent and is quite the Jerkass. Maggie once tried to kill both Odin and Ava by attacking Odin and crashing his ship without an ounce of regret. She technically succeeded in Ava's case.
  • Dreamworks Face: Yup.
  • Elemental Eye Colors: Her green eyes match her plant based powers.
  • Emotional Powers: Like Ava, her pact side acts up when she is angry or flustered. As seen here and here
  • Foil: According to Word of God, Maggie was designed to be everything Ava isn't.
  • Foreshadowing: Maggie is confident she'll survive Odin's ship crashing. She already knew that pact holders are Nigh Invulnerable.
  • Glowing Eyes: When Tuls is getting ready to cast his magic.
  • Green Thumb: Maggie has shown the ability to convert her arms into surprisingly strong vines/tree branches for combat purposes, an ability she gained after forming a pact with her demon.
  • Has a Type: And Odin, she declares, is not it.
  • Healing Factor: Openly admits that a spaceship that she's on crashing into the ground of a random planet won't kill her. It doesn't.

    Odin 

Odin Arrow

"B-before you d-do...an-n-ything rash, I...n-need you to just...h-hear me out..."

A student who attended Ava and Maggie's class and has an odd interest in Maggie. Little is known about Odin aside from the fact that he hails from a different planet than Maggie and Ava. His age was rather nebulous at best, as he is stated to be the same age as the others yet looks far older, but was later revealed to be 18 by Crow and Raven. At the start of the story, Odin tries to convince Maggie to leave the planet with him, and insists that she is in danger from something.

    Gil 

Gil Marverde

"What kind of doctor would I be if I just left them to die?"

A blue skinned boy from another planet and an aspiring doctor. Close friends with Nevy Nervine and has promised to ask TITAN a very important question on her behalf. He seems to be kind-hearted and perfectly willing to help others at his own expense. Reveres TITAN as a sort of leader/god.
  • Back from the Dead: He was dying of acid burns when the followers saved him.
  • Berserk Button: He seems to turn a bit... tetchy, whenever someone points out the shaky logic in his religion. He even calls Ava and Odin "heathens."
  • Combat Medic: His goal is to become one.
  • Freudian Slip: When talking to a "friend" that he knew in school.
    Gil: It's been such a long time! How long has it been? S-seven, maybe eight years? Y-you look swell! Er-I mean-you look like you're doing swell!!
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: He says "gosh" and "golly" a lot.

    Crow & Raven 

Crow and Raven Arrow

Odin's younger twin sisters.

     Strategos Six 

Strategos Six

"Without TITAN, life has no meaning. TITAN is the best thing you'll ever have."

TITAN's "Second-in-Command."

     Ranunculae 

Ranunculae

A girl from Tuls' past.

Demons

    Wrathia 

Wrathia Bellarmina

"If you hadn't ignored me you would know how important I am to this current universe! I have UNFINISHED FUCKING BUSINESS that will never be taken care of!"

The eponymous Demon herself. Not much can be said about her back-story without spoiling, but suffice to say that she is/was very powerful and considers herself a higher being than others, which may not be so far from the truth. She has been tied to Ava from the day Ava was born and had taken it upon herself to makes her life as miserable as possible with semi-good reasons. Hates TITAN with a passion.
  • Battle Couple/Happily Married: With Pedri.
  • Black Widow: She's been married before and her current husband Pedri wears the skull of her former husband as a Cool Mask. This has implications.
  • Big Red Devil: A feminine example, complete with goat pupils.
  • Burning with Anger: Hellish HabaŮero, though she isn't exactly wreathed in flames. Rather, her body becomes so hot that it starts burning her clothes and melting her crown which in the kickstarter book is noted to be made of obsidian.
  • Cute Monster Girl: A lot more human-looking than her husband.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Says this to Ava on page 1336 while the former is trapped in the Gates of Paradise at TITAN's Headquarters and understandably freaking out. She pops one of the magic potions that she created with the pact book (that are supposed to be so powerful that Wrathia couldn't conceive her needing to use more than one, EVER) into Ava's hand and tells her to go out and kick ass.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Great for Cheshire Cat Grins, too.
  • Fantastic Racism: Looks down on just about everyone who isn't a member of either her race or empire.
  • Foil: The way Wrathia treats Ava is a huge contrast to how Nevy treats Gil.
  • The High Queen/God Save Us from the Queen!: Insists she's the former to her empire but given how she behaves in the present, it's hard to believe she wasn't actually the latter.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: Most of Wrathia's current problems are her own fault. Ava refuses to make the pact until it's absolutely necessary because Wrathia never told explicitly what it was or how it worked. Wrathia also wrecks Ava's interpersonal relationships, meaning Ava has no idea how to convince Wrathia's soldiers to join her. The fact that Wrathia is a Demon at all is also her fault.
    • Also worth noting that when Ava threatens to deliberately fail the pact, which would destroy Wrathia's hopes and trap her in what is implied to be a hellish existence she states "I have nothing to lose," which is only true because Wrathia destroyed everything she cared about and then tried to weasel out of helping her.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Pedri was at least two heads taller than her.
  • Jerk Ass: Ruined Ava's life by constantly abusing her.
  • Loophole Abuse: Tries to use this to force Ava to fulfill the Pact by pointing out Ava asked for a "new life," not a "different life". Ava will have none of that.
  • Meaningful Name: Wrathia Bellarmina.
  • Moral Myopia: Good heavens, yes.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: Tries to enact this against TITAN to ensure that she, Pedri and her strongest warriors have the chance to die free and to acquire reinforcements in the form of Lifeform Hosts. She is pissed when she finds out she is attached to Ava.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Ruining Ava and Maggie's friendship means Ava is isn't very confident about recruiting Maggie, who isn't known for her forgiveness, for the anti-TITAN army.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Kinda. She calms down a little after she and Ava make the Pact and when Ava has genuine questions about how to carry out her side of the Pact, Wrathia offers up some sincere wisdom. Of course before giving her advice, she tried to weasel out of giving Ava exactly what she wanted.
    • Seemed to sincerely love her husband and unborn child and despite chafing at the idea, considered surrendering to TITAN if it meant he'd leave her subjects alone.
  • Playing with Fire: Gave Ava fire based powers after the pact.
  • Poor Communication Kills: It somehow never occurred to Wrathia that in order to convince Ava to make a Pact with her that she would have to do more than say "PACT" at her incessantly.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has long hair throughout her life and afterlife, but it's at its longest in her ghost form.
    • Dramatic Wind: When in her ghost form, her hair tends to move like it's underwater.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A red-eyed jerkass with a Hair-Trigger Temper and Moral Myopia.
  • Regular Caller: Has been asking Ava to make a pact for a good portion of her life.
  • Satanic Archetype: To TITAN's Crystal Dragon Jesus.
  • Second Face Smoke: Does said act to Ava during the first meeting in their mind.
  • Secondary Character Title: Technically, the title refers to Wrathia, despite not actually referring to her name.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Is shown smoking during her reign as queen and in Ava's mind, twice.

    Nevy 

Nevy Nervine

"You can't be this nice to strangers, Gil. You're gonna get hurt."

Next to nothing is known about Nevy's past, which is due to her full-blown amnesia. She is bubbly and good friends with Gil, who she wants to keep out of harms way. At times, she seems very possessive of Gil and is prone to being jealous of people he gives attention to. Nevy desires to ask TITAN about her past after she heard that he is omniscient, and desperately wants to learn the truth about herself and who she is.
  • Badass Adorable: It's worth pointing out that the person Wrathia mentions as being strong right after her husband Pedri is Nevy, and she's adorable.
  • Bubble Gun: Frequently seen blowing bubbles or making bubble animals. In this scene she's making fish.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: It's almost like she doesn't want Gil to have any other friends. Of course, with her being intangible and everything, their relationship is strictly platonic.
  • Cute and Psycho: No word yet but the way she compares people to baited fish on page 801 and 803 makes one wonder.
  • Death Glare: Oh, wow Nevy.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Speculated to be or become this—a theory based mainly on her association with the sin of envy and her reluctance to let Ava & co into her and Gil's lives. Plus, she's a green-eyed monster.
  • Horned Humanoid: Magenta ones.
  • Identity Amnesia: It appears as though Nevy has trouble remembering her past, even though she knows her own name (she thinks her name is Nevy, anyway) and feels as though her home and life were taken from her. We don't know precisely what caused it, but it may have something to do with Wrathia's 'cursed wine'. Nevy is, after all, a demon, and this page has Wrathia filling a bottle that matches Nevy's colour scheme and maritime themes.
    Nevy: But what life? Why can't I remember? I wish my head would stop swirling.
  • Making a Splash: Not shown in-story yet, but heavily implied with her oceanic appearance and bubble-making powers.
  • Meaningful Name: "Nevy" is an anagram for "Envy". It's also very close to 'Navy', which is a shade of blue (her hair is blue, but not navy blue specifically), and ties into her associations with water. "Nervine" is also an archaic word having to do with the soothing of nerves and medicine.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: She's not corporeal enough for it to bother him (or even for him to notice), but the way she's leaning on Odin here gives one pause, especially given how she normally reacts to outsiders.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: She used to own one. Maybe.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Much like Wrathia's.
  • Say It with Hearts: Or broken hearts. Either way, it has a really nice effect.

    Tuls 

Tuls Tenebrose

The demon possessing Maggie. Green, with a thing for plants.

    Pedri 

Pedri Nanezgani

"..."

Wrathia's husband.

Other

    TITAN 

TITAN

Not much is known about the entity called "TITAN". He was able to conquer Wrathia's empire of multiple galaxies in the span of a day, and his name is always written in caps. Most likely in charge of TITAN Inc., the company which established Ava's re-education planet. TITAN is rumored to be "all-knowing", although this is likely propaganda spread by TITAN Inc. His forces are said to consist of a "massive army of "followers"", but it is unknown if all of them are willing participants in TITAN's galactic conquest.

    Silent Scavengers 

Silent Scavengers

Strange and violent creatures who attacked and destroyed Ava's home planet. Their race seems to have control of powerful technology, as demonstrated by the robots used to attack Ava's homeworld, and their capability to destroy an entire planet in a relatively short time span. Odin and his brother seem to have some knowledge and possible past experience with these creatures, although to what extent is unknown. Odin was fortuitously warned by his brother about the impending Silent Scavenger invasion, and is able to escape the planet, along with Maggie and Ava. The Silent Scavenger's motives and allegiance are currently unknown, although they did attack a TITAN-made planet, which could be of significance.

    Prudith Loone 

Prudith Loone

"Not everyone is cut out for TITAN's Paradise ...especially those who are lazy."

Loyal follower of TITAN and classroom mate to Gil.
  • Asshole Victim: The best way to put it after her lack of manners.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: She worked hard and dreamed of serving in the elites, something that has made her bitter when other less involved followers get chosen instead. She ironically gets her wish when the Gate To Paradise accidentally transforms her instead of Ava.
  • Body Horror: Her transformation.
  • Death by Irony: The only reason she was in the chamber was to force Ava to stay. The procedure isn't actually what kills her—Ava burns through her to escape. Though admittedly, the degree to which she was alive after that thing was through with her is debatable..
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: As seen in Gil's flashback, she put a lot of effort into her TITAN studies and has been working towards being a follower all her life. Thus, she is infuriated when Gil asks her for help or when Ava expresses disinterest and fear at becoming a follower fit for Paradise.
  • Human Aliens: Going strictly by her blue skin, body tissues and similarly shaped pupils, she seems to be a similar species to Gil. She also has fangs and cat-like eyes.
  • Jerkass: The way she treats Gil during the test and pushing Ava later certainly qualifies.
