Main Characters


Nina Delacroix

The main character (sort of). A young vampire born on Easter, she feeds on chocolate instead of blood.
  • A-Cup Angst: For awhile, she was convinced that she needed boobs like her sister's for guys to be interested in her, but seems to have finally gotten over it.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Behaves in a very juvenile manner, and is just plain bizarre.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: In Layla's eyes.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Nina is easily distracted by flowers, butterflies or Ace.
  • Buxom Is Better: She believed that she needs bigger boobs to attract Kade.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Justified, as she's only 14 (and acts even younger).
  • Cute Little Fangs: Seen at all times, unless she's pouting.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Nina is very short for her age (she's 14 at the begining of the comic), acts like a child most of the time, is usually very sweet and naive. Plus she sports Cute Little Fangs.
  • Deal with the Devil: She made a bargain with Tia, out of fear that she was losing her sister, Layla, to Queen Lamia. So she asks Tia to help her, in exchange for Blair.
    • I Gave My Word: After Tia keeps her end of the bargain, Nina honors her end when she comes to collect payment for services rendered.
  • Decoy Protagonist: For a while as the others are got major subplots, though she has recently come back towards the forefront.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: When Nina went to Layla to ask about her boobs, she poked fun at her. How did Nina respond? By hijacking her sister's body, then using it to go on a date with her sister's boyfriend. According to her, it was totally justified. The fandom disagreed, as did her parents.
  • The Ditz: Nina usually appears not very bright, though it may be a result of her innocence.
  • Fanservice Pack: take Laura's height (courtesy of Tia) then mix with a hair and wardrobe change and you get a much hotter Nina. As if it were not enough, she later gets Laura and Chess' combined size too. This made her much more popular with the guys, albeit temporarily.
  • Friend to Bugs: While running for her life, Nina happily notes that she avoided stepping on a ladybug.
  • Genki Girl: Nina is always very energetic and often glomps on characters she likes. She met Ace this way for example.
  • Hidden Eyes: In this strip which, along with her gaping mouth and protruding fangs, indicate something's wrong with her.
  • The Ingenue: Quoting the TV Tropes definition, Nina is a "Young virginal woman with the purity of a child". Just replace "woman" with "female teenager".
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Chloe, and possibly others, seems to see Nina as this, though there are hints that there is something darker within (Sisterly Love arc). Other characters have acted to shield her from darker, or at least more mature, things.
    • According to demonically-empowered Chloe, Nina exudes an aura of pure innocence. Due to being a succubus, Chloe is compelled to corrupt her, but the fact that Nina is so very innocent, combined with the fact that they were pretty good friends before Chloe became demonically-empowered, causes her to have a bad reaction.
  • It's All About Me: When she discovered that Brooke was dating Ace, her immediate response was "I thought you were my friend!" while running off crying about her "special puppy" despite Ace never having shown any romantic interest in her. The kicker? She did all this while possessing Laura's height, which was stolen from her by Tia, after having promised she would give it back after a few minutes. It only gets worse from there. After everyone got shrunk down due to Tia's machinations. Nina seems to be completely unconcerned since it allows her to play with everyone as if they were dolls (though they might have allowed it so she could have an awesome birthday).
  • Kiddie Kid: Nina is introduced as a 14-year-old, but she acts like as if she was about half of that age.
  • Multicolored Hair: Most of her hair is purple, save for hairtips which are black. It seems to be natural.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: When she gets her first taste of blood (well technically second, but she was in Layla's body the first time) her demeanor suddenly changes and she swats away a chocolate bar Ace brought for her.
    • Nina is later on the receiving end when Layla/Quintessa forgets her name.
  • Older Than They Look: For the first three volumes of the comic, Nina was 14, but could easily be mistaken for being roughly half that age. She finally turned 15 at the beginning of the 4th volume and has not only grown physically, but has begun to show signs of maturity as well. But she's still "Nina".
  • Our Vampires Are Different: See the Vegetarian Vampire entry.
  • Red Herring: She only had part of Quintessa's spirit sealed inside her. The real host was Layla all along.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: Blair suspected her to be a reincarnation of Lamia Asra-Pa Quintessa, the very same vampire queen that ushered in a very bloody dark age for mankind that she and Ace did a report on early in the story. However, it wasn't exactly the case (see Red Herring).
  • Spoiled Sweet: For the most part, though she tends to annoy her sister (and the readers) at times.
  • Sweet Tooth: she feeds on chocolate instead of blood.
    • Later has a Heroic BSOD when Laura admits she doesn't like chocolate.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Started out Spoiled Sweet but turned into a brat out of jealousy of her more mature classmates. She was very reluctant to return the height and curves she'd "borrowed" from Laura (courtesy of Tia) to get Ace's attention because it also got her attention from alot of other boys, and she was whiny about it after she finally did.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: Nina's preference for chocolate, rather than blood, makes her an oddity among vampires to say the least, supposedly because she was born on Easter Sunday. The truth comes out in chapter 15 when Blair explains that he purposely conditioned her that way in an effort to prevent Queen Quintessa's reincarnation. Except he'd been wrong about which of the Delacroix children it was to be: it was her older sister, Layla.


Layla Delacroix / Queen Quintessa

Nina's older sister, who's determined to make her into a proper vampire by getting her to drink blood.


Chloe Love

A succubus, who considers herself to be ugly by succubus standards (though she acknowledges that she's pretty by human standards), despite her many admirers. Much to the surprise of readers, she now has her own webcomic Spin-OffDangerously Chloe. See that character page for her entry.


Brooke Lynn

A melusine. She can turn into a snake monster, but, true to the tale of Mélusine, resents her monster form and tries to hide it. Generally laid-back and cool, but confused and shy when it comes to romance.


Kade Whiteclaw

A catboy who's Layla's sometimes boyfriend, and the object of Nina's affections.


Ace Wolfhart

A werewolf, who's Nina's unwilling friend, though generally nice and well meaning.



Nina's doll, possessed by the spirit of a man; absolutely shameless pervert. Nina gives him to Tia at the end of vol.4.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: To all females, including genderbent males.
  • Animals Hate Him: He constantly gets chased and chewed on by every pet he's ever met.
  • The Casanova: When he get's transferred into Ace's body by accident he rather quickly shows himself able to charm three girls in one day now that he is no longer in a female doll.
  • Creepy Doll: Oh yes.
  • Evil Gloating: Which was cut short, courtesy of Tia's magic, when she came to collect payment for helping Nina save her sister — as they agreed.
  • The Hedonist: He pretty much only lives to satiate his perversions and considers inhibitions to be "wussy".
  • Hidden Depths: There seems to be more going on than first thought. Why he suddenly has this dark scene has led to a lot of WMGing.
  • Hammerspace: When Sharing a Body with Ace, he pulls a stake out of nowhere. Ace Lampshades it by asking where it came from.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Blair name is a reference to Linda Blair. He does the Exorcist's neck trick in his first apparition in the comic.
  • The Not Secret: Just about everybody knows his so-called "carefully hidden" weakness. So much so, that Twiggit, Chloe, and Layla have all exploited it at different points.
  • Painting the Medium: He uses a slightly different font than everyone else. Which eventually comes in useful to distinguish him from Ace when they end up Sharing a Body.
  • Panty Thief: As if his character image doesn't make it obvious enough.
  • Running Gag: Blair's habit of either saying, or doing, something to annoy others, then getting punt-kicked for it.
  • Spanner in the Works / Wild Card: Blair has two cases of these which stand out. In both he showed he didn't mind interfering with the plans of others if it helped his goals or even jeopardized the good thing he had in the process.
    • He stole the Orb Of Tiresias from the Hellrune Coven to put the whole school into a major gender-bending fiasco that almost turned the school into his own paradise of blonde buxom bimbos, even Nina, who loved him.
    • When told the Doompanties were the rarest panties in the universe, he stole them off of Chloe, not caring if he lost the Heaven he was in with her. Or that he'd be locked in the box with them for a very very long time.
  • Tempting Fate: When Nina gives Tia Blair's doll body sans Blair in it, he proclaims Tia won't be getting him as he has found better accommodations (i.e. Ace's body). Before he can finish his sentence, Tia pulls his spirit out of Ace and back into the doll with a wave of her finger.
  • The Unreveal: He has an interesting backstory and Freudian Excuse, but no one wants to hear it.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Chapter 14 has him as one. Tia boosts a magick on Blair that shrinks anyone he touches into Blair's size. Unfortunately, while she's collecting the smaller characters, she grabs Blair as well—and suffers the same fate.
  • Voices Are Mental: After Sharing a Body with Ace, Dio mentions that Blair's voice is coming out of Ace's body. He also continues to use the same, slightly different font when speaking than Ace and everyone else.


    The Hellrune Coven 

The Hellrune Coven

A coven of witches. Got their own spinoff, Magick Chicks, but still make appearances. See the Artemis Academy And Apollo Academy page for their entries.

    Cess and Laura 

Cessily (Cess) and Laura

A pair of minor antagonists, who aspire to become 'queen bees' by overthrowing Layla, but their "plans" usually backfire. As of Vol.4, they've become friends with Nina, and seem to be on good terms with Layla.


Cessily Frostblossum

A Snow Fairy.
  • An Ice Person
  • Buxom Is Better: She seems more comfortable with having bigger breasts thanks to Tia now than she did when Chloe did it earlier.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: After turning Laura away initially, Cess sees the now-shorter Laura in her Loli-outfit. Seeing this reminds Cess how Laura looked as a kid...and this causes Cess to tear up and hug Laura tightly to her bosom, wailing "I missed you SO muuuuuuch!"
  • Laser-Guided Karma: She talked about having Chloe's E-cup breasts done in school colors, then rigging Chloe's bra to pop open and flash the football team. Cess is shocked when they see Chloe with smaller breasts (Chloe was tired of having to lug around those massive breasts). Eventually, Cess and Laura both get E-cups of their own thanks to Chloe, and Cess realizes how heavy they were.
    • And another piece of it when after she'd gotten used to them, they left once the Doompanties were sealed back in their box.
  • Only Sane Man: Much more sensible than Laura.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: Cess can change her hand and part of her arm to be an ice-based hammer to knock some sense into Laura when she thinks Cess should dye her hair red. Later made a lockpick icicle on her finger.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Laura Morningfire

A fire ifrit.
  • Burning with Anger: Her temper causes Power Incontinence for her.
  • Butt Monkey: Has run into a lot of misfortune as of late. She loses her breasts thanks to Tia, Cessily leaves her when she thinks Laura was manipulating her as per her species (once again thanks to Tia). And when Nina tries to help her, yet another run in with Tia results in her losing her height. But she might be having a means to deal with it (see Idea Bulb).
  • Buxom Is Better:
    • She was happy with her new breasts. Until she lost them when the Doompanties were relocked into their box.
    • Again when Tia briefly gave them back—then turned around to endow them to Cessily. She was told the only way to GET them back was for Cessily to give them to Laura willingly. And shortly afterwards Tia grabs Cess before Laura can do that.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Laura's plan for getting back at Tia was to be the cutest, most adorable 'lil moeblob ever. It worked.
  • The Ditz
    • Obfuscating Stupidity: Once out of Cess and Evil Chloe's influence, she challenges Tia on a "cute with cute" field and uses her ditziness to cover this up (and have Tia think this extra ditziness might have been a result of her stealing the height and curves from Laura).
  • Dumb Blonde: Previously until Tia did her nastiness to Laura. Then...
  • Fun Size: Tia takes away Laura's height and gives it to Nina. However, this makes Laura realize she looks adorable—and realize she can challenge Tia on "adorability" now. Going to "The Trendy Loli," Laura uses this to win over everyone, and even use her "aura of innocence" to hurt Tia with a hug (as it "Burns" Tia in doing so).
  • Obfuscating Insanity: Tia initially thinks Laura's lost it. However, this is Laura trying to go "full Lolita" to give enough cred to her own plan to take on Tia.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Uses this on Mr. Purvis to convince him not to punish her due to her non-uniform attire (she also adds that her uniforms don't fit her anymore given her height was taken away by Tia).
  • Spanner in the Works: Tia Darkness claims that this is an ifrit's nature, using it to drive a wedge between Cessily and Laura by pointing out the latter can't HELP but mess up the former's plans. When Laura finally realizes that she can put this to use against ''Tia,'' Tia's machinations begin to collapse hard.


Tia Darkness

An adorable very young dark-haired demoness (succubus?). Appeared when Cessily, Laura and Nina tried to summon Chloe back and immediately began to show who's the boss. Seems to be a competent magic user.

    Queen Quintessa 

Queen Lamia Asra-pa Quintessa and Mr. Boodles

A vampire queen and her cat. Lived a long time before the story starts. Ace and Nina have to do a report on her.
  • Bi the Way: Layla remembers kissing both Eugene and Maria in her previous life. Now that she's reincarnated and her personality is a mix between Layla's and her original self she's reasonably squicked out by this. However this might explain some of Layla's bisexual tendencies.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: While controlling Layla, she tells Blair that she couldn't care less about his motives, because she has dealt with so many assassins with tortured backstories that it has gotten tedious.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: She starts off as little more than a minor Posthumous Character in an early chapter. But a long time later, she becomes quite relevant.
  • Demonic Possession: According to legend, Queen Quintessawas given a resurrection spell in case she was ever killed. When Nina gets her first taste of blood, Blair states that she is channelling Queen Quintessa through her body. She's also apparently able to switch hosts through biting, and transfers herself to Layla in an attempt to devour her mind and steal her body.
  • Femme Fatale: Queen Lamia uses her wiles to gather supporters from both sexes. In the present era, she has been influencing her apparent reincarnation, Layla, into going on dates with Brooke, Kade, and Dio. She has also shown a special interest in Ace, Talking in His Dreams, saying that they belong to one another, while manipulating his emotions and claiming that she needs his love to survive.
  • Fish Out of Temporal Water: When Lamia returns to the living world, she has a lot of trouble adjusting to the many differences. She is taken aback to learn that vampires in current times maintain a low profile and avoid killing humans. Phones and Tumblr are strange to her. But most of all, she misses her pet Boodles. When Layla defeats and regresses her to a child, she expresses great fear of her strange new world.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Quintessa was quite ruthless during her rule managing to wipe out entire towns in one night before moving on to the next.
  • Killer Rabbit: Mr. Boodles may look cute, but he decapitated King Lupus with a single claw swipe.
  • Formally Named Pet: Mr. Boodles.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Receives one from Layla, who criticizes her for acting as if she owns everything when she is little more than a bygone relic.
  • Sealed in a Person-Shaped Can: Within Nina, as confirmed by Blair. When Nina gets her first drop of blood and goes berserk, Ace receives a vision from a mysterious being, resembling Queen Quintessa, who thanks him for freeing her. It's later revealed that she was actually sealed in Layla, and only part of her spirit was trapped in Nina. When the berserk Nina bit Layla, Quintessa's rebirth was complete.
  • Split Personality Takeover: She attempts this on Layla, attempting to devour her mind in an attempt at Grand Theft Me. Layla ultimately reverses this onto her, regressing Queen Lamia to the mind of a child with only a minor influence over Layla.

Minor/Recurring Characters


Tiffany Winters

A vampire slayer who really does want to slay Layla, but that's not going so well. Appears more often now in the Spin-Off, Magick Chicks. See the Artemis Academy And Apollo Academy page for her entry.


Maria Delacroix

Nina and Layla's mother. She's apparently had 13 children. Not the loner sort of a vampire - she prefers to keep some company around and is unhappy about her daughters being mostly absent, that is in school or asleep.

    Professor Twigitt 

Professor Twigitt

The science teacher at Charybdis Heights and may, or may not, be human.

    Mr. Wolfheart 

Mr. Wolfhart

Ace's father.
  • Open-Minded Parent: When Ace goes to school as a boy and comes home as a girl...
    Mr. Wolfhart: (Glomps Ace) I've always wanted a daughter!



The Delacroix's housekeeper. It's unknown what she is, just that she looks kinda like an owl and is creepy.



Tiffany's boss, at the mall.


Diodore Renoir

Layla's fiancee.
  • Arranged Marriage:
    • Formerly, between him and Layla, but it was deep-sixed, when he learned she was in love with Kade. Except his father won't allow him to return home without one of the Delacroix sisters as his bride. So he's stuck hopelessly pursuing Layla.
    • Then again, it may not be so hopeless after all. Though their roles have been reversed, with Layla having feelings for Dio, who's hooked up with Ash, thanks to Melissa's wand!
  • Bishōnen: Certainly enough to make Layla forget about Kade, and make Chloe turn evil.
  • Bi the Way: Fell in love with Ash, due to Melissa's magic wand, but is still attracted to women sometimes.
  • Fantastic Racism: He wastes no time in bragging to Ace how Vampires are the superior race, and tends to call him mutt or any related names.
  • Flat Character: Fans have begun to regard him this way, due to a lack of characterization, compared to the rest of the cast.
  • French Jerk: Dio is French (from Marseille, to be precise), though his nationality is almost never mentioned and never comes into play in his jerkass moments.
  • Jerkass: Dio is full of himself, dismissive of anyone he deems inferior to him, classist and displays Fantastic Racism like it was nothing. His one redeeming trait is that he's not a womanizer, while it would be very easy for him.
    • Break the Haughty: And the universe responds to the above by knocking him down a few pegs in equal measure to his snobby antics. The best example is when he, after Ash slugs him thinking he is going to hurt Tiffany, picks a fight with Ash for "daring to lay a hand on his betters"...and then gets curb-stomped, and also when Layla tells him he got mistaken for a human by Nina on her blood-craving craze, his ego takes a HUGE blow.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After taunting a shrunken Kade, Kade tells him, "Why don't you come down here and say that to my face!" One POOF later, Dio's shrunk down too.
  • Upper-Class Twit: He comes from a prestigious vampire family himself, and he's very full of himself.
