The protagonist, narrator, and player character. He wakes up dead and wants to figure out who he is, but all he has is his corpse (which he cannot interact with), a mentor named Ray, and the time until sunrise, when his soul will cease to exist.
A detective, and the first person you save. Apparently she's the key to figuring out who you really are... but if she told you straight off, what fun would that be?
- Agent Mulder: Whenever confronted by a seemingly hopeless dilemma, Lynne's steely confidence doesn't wave, even in the face of skepticism (usually Sissel's).
- Dude Magnet: Lynne seems to have quite the number of fans. In-universe, as well - there's a nameless cop who falls in love with her at first sight.
- Fair Cop: In the eyes of some of her colleagues.
- Fiery Redhead: An excellent example in the determined, passionate and energetic Lynne. She usually isn't so quick to anger, but when it comes to clearing detective Jowd's name there is no stopping her.
- Freeze Sneeze: Lynne does this in the rain, and it's pretty cute. She gets another one during the submarine chapter if the water starts to catch up with them.
- Hartman Hips: Not so much in official art, very much so ingame.
- He Knows Too Much: She is single-handledly (or so it appears..) chasing a cold case, trying to prevent her friend Detective Jowd from being executed unfairly. As the case also involves the Temsik meteorite, she's become a target of Commander Sith due to her meddling.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Twice, in fact.
- Improbable Age: In the flashback to ten years ago she's young enough to call someone 'mister'. Now she's a detective. She states Cabanela fudged her exam results, which probably sped things up. In the ending timeline, it's taken her ten years, but she's just made detective on her own merits, which is a little bit more believable.
- Meaningful Name: Lynne's name is spelled in katakana as Rinne, a word that can refer to the Buddhist cycle of death and rebirth—fairly appropriate for a girl who keeps dying and coming back to life.
- Mini Dress Of Power: Judging by the difference in skin color between her face and her legs, it appears she wears leggings as well.
- Number One Dime: Even after passing the Academy, she continues to wear a phony, plastic toy badge from her childhood. "To me, this is the symbol of the real detective!"
- Plucky Girl: Lynne takes this trope to unseen levels. Laughing off five deaths (all of which she remembers) in one night and all... "Haha! I died again!"
- Primary-Color Champion: Lynne is easily spotted via her flaming red hair (shaped to resemble a rooster's comb). She wears an equally brilliant yellow jacket with a navy blue dress underneath.
- They Killed Kenny Again: "It's Lynne! And she's not dead, for once."
- Trademark Favorite Food: Roast chicken, apparently.
A possessed desk lamp who teaches Sissel the ropes of the spirit world. He seems to know more than he's letting on, though. He's Missile from an alternate timeline where Sissel didn't stick around to help Lynne and none of Yomiel's plans were stopped. Missile went back to the day of Yomiel's death (as Sissel would later do) and then waited ten years for the day of Sissel's death to come around again so he could manipulate him into helping Lynne.
- I Lied: About ghosts disappearing in the morning.
- Spirit Advisor: A spirit advisor to another spirit. He helps Sissel figure out how to use ghost tricks.
- Two Aliases, One Character: At the very end, it is revealed that Ray is an aged Missile from another timeline where everything went wrong.
- Walking Spoiler: His true identity is only revealed at the end of the game.
Lynne's loyal but excitable Pomeranian. Becomes a valuable assistant after he dies (again) and acquires the power to swap similarly-shaped objects.
- Canine Companion: Missile. Possibly the greatest example ever.
- Cute but Cacophonic: He's prone to speaking in VERY LARGE TEXT!!! and drives the woman next door nuts with his barking.
- The Determinator: Seriously, you will never cross a small dog again. In fact, you will befriend and attempt to win the undying loyalty of every single one you meet. You want them on your side.
- Dogs Are Dumb:
- Missile comes off as The Ditz, albeit a very cheerful Ditz. Perhaps less "stupid" and more "incredibly naive and optimistic" (but note the subversion below).
- The subversion in the end is Ray's true identity-a past-timeline Missile who manipulated Sissel into saving Lynne and Kamila while on his Quest for Identity, having went ten years into the past and taking The Slow Path back to the present. The Dog LITERALLY Was The Mastermind.
- Good Is Dumb: Missile declares he will "make [his] own path". Cue Missile attempting to escape the apartment he's in by repeatedly smashing into the door. As incredibly dumb as it seems, his actual goal was to jump to the doorknob, an endeavor in which he eventually succeeds.
- Heroic Dog: Follows his mistress into danger and dies, but when he's offered a chance to come back to life he refuses, because he's inherited ghost powers that allow him to protect his mistress better.
- Hidden Depths: He may act profoundly dumb at times, but you have to admire the fact that unlike Sissel who needed Ray to explain it all to him, Missile was able to somehow figure out his ability to go back in time and his ghost swap ability, to the point where he was able to save Kamila all by himself. Not only that, but in the original timeline, he managed to get all the way to Yomiel's body in the detached control room in the ocean. By himself. Without the ability to travel through phone lines! Considering everything you have to do to get that far, that's pretty impressive.
- Mister Muffykins: The most badass one you will ever meet.
- No Indoor Voice: He often gets A LITTLE OVEREXCITED!!! and starts speaking in giant text.My name is Missile! Justified, of course — what else would you expect from a "talking" Pomeranian?
- Perspective Magic: His ghost trick is to swap similarly shaped objects. If you rotate an object to change its silhouette, you can then swap it with other objects that have that new silhouette.
- The Pollyanna: To an absurdly humorous degree.
A young girl who lives with Lynne. Also Jowd's daughter. She accidentally killed her mother with a Rube Goldburg birthday contraption that Yomiel manipulated to fire a gun.
- Break the Cutie: Life was very harsh to her. And it is your job to completely un-break this cutie!
- Creepy Child: Possessed Kamila. Even though the sprites are so small, it's hard not to imagine her as a character right out of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.
- Hair Decorations: A bright yellow bow.
- Hidden Eyes: Kamila gets these at one point when she is possessed by Yomiel.
- Meaningful Name: Kamila's Japanese name, Kanon, is another name for Guanyin, the bodhisattva associated with compassion.
- Punny Name / Theme Naming: Kanon and Missile, eh?
- Self-Made Orphan: Between the birthday contraption and her father's impending execution for the murder of his wife, Yomiel set her up to accidentally become one.
- Small Girl, Big Gun: Yomiel!Kamila is packing heat: a Thompson machine gun. And one-handed no less!
- The Woobie: On her mother's birthday, she decides to surprise her by making an elaborate Rube Goldberg contraption that would end up popping partypoppers. But it is instead rigged by a ghost wanting revenge on her father so that it would instead pull the trigger of a decorative gun, killing her mother. On her own birthday. As if the irony wasn't enough, her father decides to take the blame and is sentenced to death. So now she carries the guilt of being responsible for not only for her mother's death, but also her father's. Bad enough? It gets worse. She's also kidnapped as a bargaining chip to assure that her dad is executed. When her father comes to rescue her, the same ghost who killed her mother decides to possess her and have the girl shoot her own dad. Luckily that doesn't happen... because her dad was already killed elsewhere. Instead, she gets to see the woman who's been raising her as an adoptive little sister die hit by falling ruble and float face down. Oh, and she also witnesses her little dog being shot dead. Ouch. Thankfully, everything gets reverted in the end.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Bright purple, in her case.
A flamboyant detective who dances wherever he goes. He's an ambitious ladder-climber and wears a white coat to illustrate his spotless record. Secretly working to find evidence of a 'manipulator' possessing other people, and to clear Detective Jowd's name.
- The Ace: The swag! The stride! The moves! Watch out, crime.
- Broken Ace: However, under all of that swag is an unhealthy determination to climb the political ladder of the force. Which is subverted when it's revealed that he did all that in order to solve the manipulator case and atone for his mistakes.
- Agent Mulder: See "Determinator."
- Ambition Is Evil: Subverted. He initially appears to be a greasy pole climber, willing to sacrifice his friends for the sake of his reputation - at one point it even briefly looks as though he's actually turned evil - but this is all part of a plan to get access to the information required to clear Jowd's name.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Even though Inspector Cabanela speaks strangely, picks favorites, and dances constantly to the point where he tap dances through crime scenes, he's kept his job because he has a "natural genius for investigating." His colleagues are spotted practicing his Fred Astaire dance on a staircase, hoping to somehow absorb his power.
- Create Your Own Villain: Yomiel.
- The Gunslinger: Characteristically, he puts a lot more showmanship into drawing his weapon than other people.
- Hammerspace: His appearance in the ending cutscene. Where did that bouquet come from?
- Earlier, he also pulls a folding chair from nowhere just so he could sit down dramatically.
- Jerkass Façade: Inspector Cabanela seems like a smarmy Jive Turkey who's obsessed with promotion and maintaining a "spotless record". Turns out his obsession with getting promoted was so he could get in a position to oversee the cases handled by the Special Investigation Unit and thus help his friend and partner, Inspector Jowd.
- Knight Templar: Subverted, but chances are if you played Ace Attorney before this, you'll think he's the Big Bad thanks to the fact that his two most notable traits (the obsession over his perfect, spotless record and the carefree head of department) were used as the defining traits for two of Ace Attorney's Big Bads.
- Lean and Mean: In his prosecutory zeal, he sometimes comes across at this.
- Made of Iron: An explosion breaks enough bones to keep him from standing, leaving him in intense pain even before Yomiel forces his body to walk back up a flight of stairs and use the phone. And he still has enough presence of mind to pull his gun and expertly shoot Yomiel with the radio tracer bullet—even spinning the gun before firing it, for added flair.
- Man in White: Inspector Cabanela wears a clean white coat to represent his spotless record. The only part of his garb that isn't white is his red scarf, which may actually come with bonus symbolism. Supposedly represents his flawless record and his determination to keep it flawless. He does have a bloody spot on his record, letting Yomiel escape.
- Man of Wealth and Taste: he dresses immaculately and keeps up the appearances of having a spotless record, compared to Jowd, who has dirty, messy clothes, and we know Jowd's innocent but the public believes otherwise... What does that say about Cabanela? He intentionally invokes this trope and is really incorruptible, as well as working to protect Jowd behind the scenes.
- My Greatest Failure: Letting Yomiel escape with his gun.
- Scarf of Asskicking: And a rather long one.
- Shout-Out: Some of his dances are based on Michael Jackson's.
- Silly Walk: Half-walks, half-dances to places.
The junkyard superintendent. Has a pigeon which sits constantly on his head. He was the medical examiner who discovered that Yomiel's body remained suspended at the moment of his death. After Yomiel possessed his own body and walked off with it the coroner quit his job to discover the truth about the mysterious corpse.
- Almighty Janitor: Formerly a police coroner and now studies radiation from space rocks in his spare time. That's pretty smart.
A bearded prisoner at the Special Prison who paints faces to remember them. Despite his circumstances he's relatively jovial and accommodating. Formerly a detective. He hunted down and nearly shot Yomiel after his escape. Five years ago he took the fall for his wife's murder to protect Kamila, though by now he almost believes he did it himself.
- Deadpan Snarker: Especially as Sissel attempts to reverse his death. Being a Death Seeker, he freely offers any snide comment and sarcastic quip he can.
- Death Seeker: When you first meet him. He's more than willing to be executed, feeling guilty over the deaths of Alma and Yomiel, and not wanting Kamila to suffer from the guilt of killing Alma with her birthday contraption. But then Sissel saves him from execution, and he suddenly has a newfound reason to live.
- Distressed Dude: Sissel has to save him from being executed.
- He's Back: When he dons his detective coat again.
- Institutional Apparel: Under a pink artist's smock.
- Last Minute Reprieve: Jowd gets at least three of these. Sissel rescues him from being killed by the electric chair (not in the chair, it explodes and kills him before he can sit on it) by helping him escape from prison. He's immediately recaptured by Cabanela. Lynne then goes to convince the Justice Minister to give him a reprieve. Unfortunately when she gets there he's died of a heart attack...but that's nothing Sissel can't handle. However, the minister won't give a reprieve until he's sure that his daughter hasn't been kidnapped, since he's being blackmailed into upholding the execution order. After all these hoops are jumped through, he's finally allowed to live another day as well as be out of prison for the rest of the night.
- My Greatest Failure: Even though he never shot Yomiel, he would have if the meteorite hadn't hit, and he still blames himself for that death.
- My Significance Sense Is Tingling: His trusty "Detective sense."
- Real Men Wear Pink: He wears a pink artist's smock over his prison uniform. Though, arguably, when you're in jail for murdering your wife, your manly reputation is probably not such a big deal.
- Taking the Heat: For the death of his wife, which he originally believed to be accidentally caused by Kamila, later revealed to be the work of Yomiel.
An old, neurotic wreck of a man. His wife took his daughter Amelie, and left him after he signed an order to execute Detective Jowd. He only signed it due to Yomiel's manipulation, but is too scared to tell anyone about it.
- British Royal Guards: Has these as his assistants and secretaries, further muddling exactly what country this is all occurring in.
- Evil Hand: Has this experience when The Manipulator forces him to sign Jowd's death order.
- Flat Earth Atheist: The justice minister loudly denies the existence of ghosts, even after Sissel goes back and saves him from dying of a heart attack. Then it turns out he was mostly trying to convince himself, after being manipulated by Yomiel into signing Jowd's execution order and spending the last few weeks covering it up.
- Hanging Judge: Averted. The death penalty hasn't been carried out in decades, and he's crushed by the guilt of having signed the death order for Jowd under Yomiel's control.
Near-Sighted Jeego and One-Step-Ahead Tengo
A pair of blue-skinned assassins sent to kill Lynne. Jeego's perfect shot range grows shorter every year, while Tengo is always one step ahead of both his target and his boss.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Tengo originally had sideburns to help differentiate him from Jeego, but this was lost somewhere down the line in the DS version, both in his sprite and profile art. They make their return in the iOS version.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: they are blue.
- Assassin Outclassin': Sissel has little problem handling them.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: "Nearsighted" Jeego and "One Step Ahead" Tengo.
- Bling-Bling-BANG!: Jeego's got a golden shotgun.
- Cold Sniper: Tengo parks himself in Lynne's apartment and sets up a nest. He also uses the gun barrel to chuck a donut to his mouth.
- Cool Gun: The Blue Assassin's (Jeego's) shotgun is golden, and a different blue assassin (Tengo) has a silver rifle.
- Leave No Witnesses: Tengo accidentally seals his own fate (and that of Beauty, Dandy, Yomiel, and the rest) when he storms Lynne's apartment, killing Kamila and Missile— presumably to finish off Jowd's family after Lynne was successfully killed in the alternate timeline. Thanks to Yomiel's presence, Missile became a ghost and flew back in time to thwart them.
- Meaningful Name: Jeego's name comes from 'jigoku', and Tengo's name from 'tengoku', Japanese words meaning 'hell' and 'heaven', respectively.
- Minion Shipping: They never meet in the game (Jeego's dead before we even see Tengo), but they seem to get a lot of slash.
- Noisy Guns: Whenever they move their weapon into position, an audible "clack" is heard.
- No Range Like Point-Blank Range: "Nearsighted" Jeego is a hitman who can always hits his target... as long as they are at point blank range.
- Opaque Lenses: Tengo.
A short but apparently wealthy blue gentleman. His motivations are unknown but he seems to have ill intent towards Lynne and a deep interest in Sissel. It's revealed later on that he is actually interested in Yomiel, who takes the name Sissel and who looks like Sissel's perception of himself, and he wants to take the Temsik fragment for the government that he works for.
- Catchphrase: "Are you trying to give me a case of the vapors?"
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Makes a good attempt at being one. He acknowledges the "slight possibility" of a ghost taking advantage of Yomiel's properly dead state when he removes the Temsik Fragment, and works disposing the body and the ghost separately into his plan.
Yomiel AKA "The Manipulator"
Warning: MASSIVE spoilers
The mysterious Big Bad
of the game. Became immortal after being struck by a shard of the Temsik meteorite. He was the one who took Lynne hostage in the park, and who orchestrated the events leading to Kamila's mother's death, Jowd's imprisonment, Lynne's murder accusation, and (accidentally) Sissel's death. Years of being separated from the rest of humanity, as well as his own undead status and his fiancée's suicide, drove him to seek revenge on the people who put him in that position. He has the power to control other living things, as well as manipulate inanimate objects like Sissel. At the end of the game Sissel turns back time to save him from the meteorite, and ghost!Yomiel controls the body of past!Yomiel to save Lynne from being crushed, redeeming himself just as he's given a second chance at life.
- Made of Iron: Even without his Temsik-induced immortality, he survives having a giant concrete rock fall on his legs without losing them, or even consciousness. After being stabbed in the back with a large stone spike, no less.
- Meaningful Name: "Yomiel" comes from the Japanese word "yomigaeru", which means "to be revived." It's also the name of a minor Fallen Angel.
- Meat Puppet: Yomiel can possess and manipulate living creatures the way Sissel manipulates inanimate objects. Aside from his cat the hosts are either unknowing or unwilling, but he can also possess the Empty Shell of his own corpse.
- Mind over Matter: Evidently has a much stronger version of Sissel's Animate Inanimate Object powers; at one point he forms an entire body out of spare machine parts lying on the floor. At other various points in the game, he manipulates living beings.
- Never My Fault: Yomiel blames everyone but himself for having a hand in his death. Yes, his vendetta against Detectives Jowd and Cabanela are kind of understandable, seeing as they arrested him, subjected him to merciless interrogation, and were going to shoot him when he tried to escape, all while he was innocent. But then, he also blames Lynn, who was just a little kid playing in the park when he was being chased by the police, and who only was involved in the situation because he chose to take her hostage. Which he blamed her for, by simple fact that he wouldn't have thought to take a hostage if she hadn't been there! It is played with later, as Yomiel admits that he knows Lynn was innocent, and knows that he screwed up his life.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain:
- Lynne is able to resist his control to a degree, and fires a wayward shot at Sissel — setting the game's events in motion.
- Being killed in proximity to the meteor fragment in Yomiel's body is what caused Sissel (and in the first timeline, Ray/Missile-Prime) to gain ghost tricks.
- Hitting the Superintendent's stove with his fist also counts. It scared the bejeezus out of Cabanela, true, but it also knocked the kettle to the floor, allowing Sissel to blaze upward from the basement.
- People Puppets: His ability.
- Phlebotinum Battery: The meteor fragment.
- Pinocchio Syndrome: He doesn't just want revenge, he wants to live a normal life and die a natural death... even if that life is artificial.
- Redemption Equals Death / Redemption Earns Life: Zig-zagged. For starters, Yomiel was already dead when his "redemption" took place, but talking with Lynne prompted him to follow Sissel and Missile as they went back ten years ago to stop him from being killed by the Temsik meteorite. Then when it looks like child!Lynne will be killed by Mino in the process, Yomiel possesses his past self to get her to safety, fully expecting it to be the former trope (especially since dying this way wouldn't let him become a ghost again). Against the odds, however, he survives and becomes a changed man in the new timeline, making it more the latter.
- Slasher Smile: Which can be a little disturbing since at the time, he looks just like Sissel. Or rather, Sissel looks like him.
- Start of Darkness: Was driven to escape custody and hold Lynne hostage following a harsh interrogation from Inspector Cabanela. While facing down Detective Jowd in Temsik Park, he was struck and killed by a meteor shard that put his body in a Schrodinger's life/death state. Upon finding that his fiancée had committed suicide to join him in the afterlife shortly after getting his body back, with no way to rewind time and prevent it, he was left with a burning desire to make everyone involved suffer precisely as he did.
- Thanatos Gambit: Possessing Lynne in the junkyard and making her shoot him in plain view of cameras.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: The entire sequence leading up to him killing Inspector Cabanela is this. He's aware of it, however, and has no problem "just shooting him" if he catches Sissel manipulating the environment.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He was falsely accused of giving secrets to the enemy and scared into thinking that he had no hope of acquittal, so he stole a police officer's gun and broke out of the police station, taking a little girl hostage out of panic. A shard of the just-crashed Temsik meteorite penetrated his back, freezing his body at the moment of death and severing it from his soul. By the time he finally pulls himself together and returns home, his fiancée has killed herself because he's been officially reported as dead. Yomiel is forced to wander the world alone, unable to die but not truly alive, separated from the rest of humanity. After all of that, he snapped and decided to make everyone he saw as responsible to suffer just as much. The isolation nurtures a darkness in his heart, making him want revenge on those who put him in that position, but he still desires most to have some way to lead a human life. His only friend and companion over those ten long years was a cat... and while trying to manipulate Lynne into shooting his shell, Yomiel accidentally kills him. Even his victims feel sorry for him when they find out his story.
Beauty and Dandy
A black-hearted blue-skinned pair, most likely from the same county as Commander Sith and the assassins. Beauty is a standoffish Ice Queen who can sense the presence of ghosts
, while Dandy is a gentleman and only slightly kinder than his cohort. Dandy has a major crush on Beauty, despite her constant verbal abuse. They kidnap Kamila, assuming she's Amelie, in order to force the justice minister to carry through with the execution order.
- Anime Hair: Beauty has a pretty impressive case of it.
- The Baroness: Beauty. She even carries a red riding crop wherever she goes.
- Even Evil Has Standards:
- Dandy may have kidnapped a little girl and stuffed her into a large suitcase, but he's not going to be cruel to her. He acts the perfect gentleman to Kamilla after he and Beauty kidnap her, even scolding Beauty (who he adores) for taking her to the house where she accidentally murdered her own mother.. If he'd wanted to be really nice, he probably shouldn't have kidnapped her in the first place.
- Once Dandy realizes that Beauty's plan was to hide out in Kamila's old house, where the girl accidentally killed her own mother, he calls Beauty out on it. It's the only time he acts remotely assertive.
- Oh, and in the alternate past where Kamila was accidentally killed by Dandy, (he fell on a lever that released a concrete statue that landed on her), he has a Villainous Breakdown at that.
- Explosive Stupidity: Last seen breaking into a safe above Chicken Kitchen with gunpowder. Dandy reads the instructions for twenty kilograms of gunpowder instead of twenty grams.
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: During Sissel's attempts to reach Dandy's hostage, he sets off multiple fires and party poppers. Each time, Dandy wakes up for a moment, then falls asleep again muttering "Just my imagination". Even Sissel is amazed by his lack of attention. It reaches a peak at the end, when Beauty walks in the door right in front of him and wakes him up. He mutters the same thing and starts to drift off again.
- I Have Your Wife: Kidnapping the Justice Minister's daughter to blackmail him into signing the death notice for Jowd. In a cruel twist of irony, they accidentally kidnap Jowd's own daughter instead, but it's still effective.
- Ice Queen: Beauty, again.
- Love Martyr: Dandy is a minor example. Beauty constantly insults him, and yet he keeps talking about who to invite to their hypothetical wedding. Given some of his dialogue, he may actually enjoy it when she insults him.
- Minion Shipping: Beauty and Dandy, although it's debatable whether Beauty is outright rejecting Dandy's affections or they just have some weird D/S thing going on.
- Noble Demon: Sure, Dandy may be a kidnapper and a henchman for the mysterious blue antagonist, but he treats his victim with an admirable amount of kindness; even chastising the woman he worships upon realizing they've brought their victim to the site of her mother's death.
- Nominal Importance: The blond blue man is named only in the soundtrack.
- Psychic Powers: Beauty can apparently sense Sissel's presence. This is never explained in canon.
- Sherlock Scan: Another interpretation is she's perceptive enough to notice when enough impossible things are happening and, because she knows what Yomiel can do, doesn't just write them off. The first time, she only suspects she's being watched - it's one can see the bottom floor of the Chicken Kitchen from the top and she might have noticed the bell ringing. The second, Sissel was tricking object right across the way from her. The third, some large changes occur in a room while Dandy was sound asleep, a glaring tell.
- Sissy Villain: Dandy.
- Something About a Rose: Dandy's pocket flower.
- Statuesque Stunner: Beauty has considerably long legs, and utterly towers over her shrimp cohort.
A large, passionate woman who lives next door to Lynne and Kamila. She writes torrid romance novels. The separated wife of the justice minister, who left him after he issued Jowd's death order.
- Hidden Depths: Amelie thinks her parents' fight is about her mother's romance novels, but Emma's anger at her husband was actually because he refused to stop Jowd's execution.
- Lady Drunk: She is never seen without a wine glass.
Emma's daughter, who is bedridden with a fever. She hates her mother because Emma refuses to let her talk to her father.
- Mouthy Kid: Not an easy literary critic to have so closely at hand.
Blue-Suited Prison Guards
A pair of bored prison guards at the Special Prison. One is named Bailey and is mildly neurotic. When trouble hits he does 'The Panic Dance', which was apparently handed down in his family for generations. The other is never given a name and generally plays the straight man to his partner's shenanigans. He likes to build card towers.
A rock star inmate at the special prison, who sung national secrets during a worldwide broadcast. Yomiel controlled him into doing so, to show off his powers to the foreign government.
An oval-headed inmate at the special prison who took the police commissioner hostage, with his only request being for curry. Yomiel again.
Does not seem very bright.
Guardian of the Park
A round-haired man who has made it his mission to defend Temsik Park and the 'rock of the gods' ( the Temsik meteorite
) from housing developers. This involves mostly dancing around barefoot and distributing leaflets. Not an undercover agent.
- No Name Given: He may have even forgotten his own name. It's never made clear whether this was a side effect of dying or if he really doesn't remember.
Jowd's wife and Kamila's mother. Yomiel murdered her using Kamila's birthday contraption. The removal of Yomiel's death from the timeline also removes her death, and she is seen at the end of the game serving dinner to her friends and family.
Chicken Kitchen Chef
A orange-nosed chef who works at (and possibly manages) the Chicken Kitchen. He enjoys singing.
- Cloudcuckoolander: He stops at the park to play on the swings when he's supposed to be delivering food.
An "odd girl"
who works at the Chicken Kitchen. She's not very attentive to her job. Probably because she's an undercover cop.
- Nice Hat: It's a roast chicken.
- Retirony: It's her last day as a waitress and she's nearly killed by a van.
Sissel (Yomiel's Fiancée) Sissel's namesake. Yomiel gave him the name after finding that she'd committed suicide, assuming him to be dead. This was part of what drove him first to despair and then to revenge. She's the only character in the game who we never directly see, but she apparently waited ten years in the new timeline for Yomiel to get out of jail.
- Driven to Suicide: In order to join Yomiel in the afterlife. Unfortunately, Yomiel didn't get the chance to tell her he still existed as a ghost until it was too late.
- I Will Wait for You: Ten years of her fiancé in jail for taking a child hostage and she's still there when he gets out. Not surprising, given that last time around she committed suicide just to be with him.
- The Ghost: The trope, not an actual ghost. It's not her fault, she just happened to appear in very stylistic flashbacks in the second timeline, and the game ended just before her appearance in the third.
- The Lost Lenore: Her death is probably the biggest reason for Yomiel's Start of Darkness.
