Characters: Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name

This character sheet is for the webcomic Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name. A lot of nifty facts can be found on the official cast page, so check it out for Word of God and stuff.

Hanna Falk Cross

The hero of the piece: red-haired, extroverted, enthusiastic, and loyal (though not the sharpest crayon in the box). He is also an Occult Detective, which in his case means a lot of running around, meeting supernatural beings and occasionally using his magic hammer and magic marker to rectify things.


{...}/Dotdotdot/Zombie/Gallahad/Imhotep/etc is Hanna's colleague and best friend. He is green, undead and vaguely Asianish. He also (at first glance) appears to have only one expression (of mild misery), but in fact exhibits a wide range of emotions - in a non-showy way.Oh, and he's the comic's narrator.

Conrad Dillon Achenleck

Rounding up the Power Trio (see above for the other two) is Conrad - a wussy, neurotic, but very, VERY angry designer. He comes to Hanna in the first chapter with an appeal for help and ends up being turned into a vampire. Which sucks because, as a vampire, Conrad is not particularly competent (i.e. the thought of biting some random stranger's filthy neck doesn't fill him with joy and anticipation). Still, he scrapes by the best he can.

Doc Worth

A highly shady, sleazy, crabby and unpleasant individual who is Hanna's go-to for all medical purposes. His unique specialization (dealing with non-humans) is probably the only thing that keeps his business going, since he's not even a proper doctor but rather a med-school dropout. His main hobbies seem to be smoking, looking suspicious, fighting with his best friend/partner in crime Lamont and insulting Conrad who he is allegedly "keen on".

Toni Ipres

No, she's not in a band. (It's theater). No, she won't tell you where she buys those clothes. (They are cool though, aren't they?). No, she's not a weird human. (She's a werewolf). And YES, she WILL go berserk on you if you threaten one of her friends.

Veser Amaker Hatch

Big-eyed, sharp-toothed and ready to say something inappropriate at any given moment, Veser is a 19-year-old college student who happens to harbor several secrets: for one thing, he has Abusive Parents, and for another, one of his parents is not quite human.

Ples Tibenoch

Accountant by day, clockwork aficionado by night. Sports the look of a Victorian gentleman and looks good in britches. Also, technically, he has only just appeared in the current storyline.

Lee Falun

Once a boring human, now a horrifying ghost who's lost most of his personality and seems to have retained only the negative aspects. When alive, was best friends with Veser's dad, which presupposes a spectacular talent at ignoring the unpleasant but obvious.

Casimiro and Finas

Those Two Guys.

Two vampires who are powerful (but low-ranking) and "proper" (meaning they actually do suck blood). They complement each other's personalities nicely and travel everywhere together, to the puzzlement of those around them.


Vampire lady and Conrad's sire. She is beautiful and treacherous, as Hanna found the hard way after undoing her curse. Casimiro has some beef with her as well.

Lamont Toucey

Doc Worth's partner in crime and friend. Looking like a member of The Mafia, he is no less shady than his colleague - but considerably more polite and pleasant. He does business with the non-human populace of the city and is thus very knowledgeable about the suspicious characters who prowl the night.

Abner Van Slyk

Vampire hunter who has very recently made an appearance in the comic. He is mysophobic (that's "fear of germs" for ya) to the point of wearing a mask and gloves at all times. However, he seems to think his pet ferret Paradox (or Para-Para) is completely clean, and carrying the animal around and kissing him is apparently A-OK.

(That kissing thing was not zoophilia, promise).
