This character sheet is for the webcomic ''[[Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name]]''. A lot of nifty facts can be found on the official [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?page_id=2 cast page]], so check it out for WordOfGod 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 OccultDetective, 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.

%%* {{Adorkable}}
%%* AmbiguouslyHuman
%%* AnimalsHateHim
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Don't mess with his pals [[BerserkButton (or his stature)]].
* BigGuyLittleGuy: played with and somewhat averted: Zombie is never portrayed as a 'dumb but loveable' type, and is often more insightful and realistic then Hanna. That said, the contrast between them is [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/We-Make-It-Look-So-Easy-160448040 pretty noticeable]].
* BodyHorror: Implied not to have any ''internal organs'' or at the very least a very hollow remnant of them.
%%* BuffySpeak
%%* CaptainObvious: Hanna has his [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=5 moments]]. The comic [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=775 wouldn't really be complete without them.]]
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Any family ties that Hanna might have are completely omitted, and it's implied that he's alone in the city.
%%* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Hinted at [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/After-All-This-Time-155094756 in this official art]].
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Falk (not that 'Hanna' is much better).
%%* FragileSpeedster: just doesn't seem like the type that can take a punch.
%%* FunPersonified
* GeekPhysiques: Rail-thin, but with wide shoulders.
* GenderBlenderName: Hanna is usually a girls' name, as the title suggests, but here belongs to a male. And he doesn't seem to mind it.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: The only-visible-during-a-ShirtlessScene variant.
%%* TheHero
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Hanna thought it was a perfectly sound idea to trust the vampire bat Adelaide. [[CaptainObvious It wasn't]].
* ImHavingSoulPains: When a ghost passes through him, he passes out and appears to be in sizable pain.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Hanna uses a hammer and sharpie for ghost hunting.
%%* {{Keet}}
%%* TheKirk
* TheNapoleon: Averted. Hanna's a tiny guy (5'3" on a good day,) but seems pretty comfortable with his stature.
%%* LovableNerd
* OccultDetective: Though his skill at the job is so far...debatable.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He looks like a teen, but he's 24. No, really.
* ThePollyanna: Hanna isn't an overwhelming example, but he's hinted to have a [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/After-All-This-Time-155094756 pretty harsh past]] and is still easily the most optimistic and extroverted of the main cast.
* SquishyWizard: He's 5'3 and skinny as a rail, and relies on his rune-writing abilities for most of his offense.
%%* UnfortunateNames: He likes his name well enough, though.
* UnwantedAssistance: Hanna 'helped' Conrad remove a vampire from his apartment... By accidentally turning him into one.
%%* WeirdnessMagnet
* WideEyedIdealist: A fairly understated and well handled one.


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

* AnimeHair: He appears to have wings on his head, but it's really just white tufts of hair.
* DarkIsNotEvil: People generally have a negative impression of TheUndead, but he's actually a pretty nice guy.
* FirstPersonSmartass: {...}'s narration is deadpan and wry, contrasting the high-energy feel of the comic and [[LampshadeHanging pointing out]] the ridiculous things that happen in it.
* GhostAmnesia: Zombie doesn't even remember what his name was.
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Averted; he's covered in scars (including, although it's yet to be shown, an '''autopsy incision''') that aren't raised but are closed with ugly black thread.
* InscrutableOriental: If he is in fact Asian.
* JacobMarleyApparel: Wears the clothes he un-died in, although it's a borderline case since he changes jackets and hats.
%%* TheLancer
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Dying and being buried for over ten years can do that to you. Subverted in that Zombie's old identity no longer matters to him.
* TheNarrator
* NiceHat: His fedora.
* NoNameGiven: Hanna keeps trying to name him, but they [[RunningGag never stick for long]]. (He likes Gallahad best, so far.)
%%* NonHumanSidekick
%%* OccultDetective
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: He has no interest in mauling people or eating brains, and is a fairly normal guy aside from being dead. Also, he clearly has sapience, though no memory of his past.
%%* PermaStubble
%%* TheSpock
* TheStoic: Zombie ''is'' capable of a range of emotions--and is actually shown to be rather caring and empathetic--but it doesn't register very often on his face, leading people to believe he is one of these. Hanna keeps tabs of every time Zombie smiles.
* SuddenlyEthnicity: He's [[AmbiguouslyBrown apparently]] Asian.
%%* SugarAndIcePersonality
%%* SupportingProtagonist
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's taller than much of the cast, oddly good-looking for a green corpse and quietly snarky.
* TeamMom: Zombie's a bit of an unconventional example, but he is something of an OnlySaneMan who tries to keep the others from hurting themselves. [[PapaWolf Always rushing to protect his allies]]; Zombie even goes as far as to put himself ''between'' friends and their attacker. He even cooks for Hanna!
%%* TheUndead

!'''Conrad Dillon Achenleck'''

Rounding up the PowerTrio (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.

* ButtMonkey: One of Tessa's favourite things to do seems to be scaring, hurting or otherwise torturing Conrad. And it can only get worse from here on out.
* ChewToy: The poor guy hires a paranormal investigator to get rid of a vampire and ends up becoming one.
* CuteLittleFangs: Actually, there's only one fang to speak of.
* TheChick: Albeit a grouchy and standoffish one.
* EmergencyTransformation
* FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampire: Although the "friendly" part is debatable, he's pretty harmless.
* GenderBlenderName: Hanna calls him "Connie," though the [[FanNickname fans started it]].
%%* HatesBeingTouched
%%* {{Hipster}}
%%* HotBlooded
* IHateYouVampireDad: He still has some... mixed feelings about Hanna killing and resurrecting him. And he sincerely hopes he ''never'' runs into Adelaide, his Vampire Mum, ever again.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: He hasn't mastered the ability to [[VoluntaryShapeshifting consciously control his transformations]] into a bat yet, so they take place unexpectedly.
%%* JerkassFacade: According to his [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?page_id=2 cast page]].
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy : Shippers who pair him with Toni often ([[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/That-Is-Quite-Enough-150926443 justifiably]]) portray them this way.
%%* TheMcCoy
%%* {{Metrosexual}}
%%* NerdGlasses
%%* NonHumanSidekick
* OhCrap: [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=194 Someone had to do it]].
%%* OnlySaneMan
* {{Tsundere}}: [[http://i.imgur.com/MfFVW.png As demonstrated here.]]
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: With Toni and maybe Adelaide.
* VegetarianVampire: Out of neurosis, not consideration for human lives.

!'''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, [[VitriolicBestBuds fighting with his best friend/partner in crime Lamont]] and insulting Conrad who he is [[FoeYay allegedly "keen on"]].

* AnimalMotifs: vulture.
* BackAlleyDoctor
* BigBrotherInstinct: Interviews reveal that he does in fact have a younger sister, and might have just a touch of a protective streak over her (to bad for him she’s apparently a swimsuit model)
* ClusterFBomb
* DrJerk: He's not a [[Series/{{House}} genius]] to make up for his JerkAss-ishness, but Worth does seem to have a rather... ''unique'' specialization.
* FurAndLoathing: Though he's not so much evil as he is simply a dick.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
* LastNameBasis: Referred to as either "Doc" or "Worth". His first name is [[spoiler:[[GenderBlenderName Luce]]]].
* MoralityPet: Hanna kind of seems to be this, a little. Doc has forbidden Hanna in past from dealing with ghosts, apparently because they always hurt him. He knows Hanna will disregard what he forbids him to do, so he urges {...} to look after him.
%%* MadDoctor
%%* PermaStubble
* SatisfiedStreetRat: is very content and happy, despite living in filth, being unqualified for his job, having troubles with finances and dealing with the supernatural on a regular basis.
* TheSmartGuy: Well, he certainly has more sense than [[TheHero Hanna]] and he ''DID'' get into med school...
%%* SmokingIsCool
* TokenMinority: Comic-wise, he's one of the very few humans.
* TrashOfTheTitans: he has roaches at his place.
%%* VitriolicBestBuds: with Lamont.
%%* WithFriendsLikeThese

!'''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.

* ActionGirl: So far she appears to be one of the most competent protagonists at fighting.
* TheBigGuy: Despite not being big nor a guy.
* HairDecorations: She wears a green cross-shaped barette.
%%* NonHumanSidekick
* OlderThanTheyLook: According to a [[WordOfGod character Q&A]], she became a werewolf in the 80s. Assuming the comic's set in or near the present, she's probably a couple decades or so older than she looks.
* OnlySaneMan: Of a sort, if only by virtue of lacking a WeirdnessCensor and being able to notice some [[CuteLittleFangs unusual]] [[GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath details]] about Hanna's compadres.
* MamaBear: No, really, don't screw with her friends. Unless you feel like getting bitch-slapped by a werewolf.
%%* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Toni's werewolf form is usually something along the lines of SavageWolves, but due to her power source being damaged, she takes ''[[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=762 this]]'' form.
* SleepModeSize: Since her talisman is broken, she has to take the form of a small dog instead of a full werewolf in order to conserve its energy.
%%* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: with Conrad.
* TwoferTokenMinority: A girl, half-Asian, half-Latina, and a werewolf (in a comic where [[WordOfGod werewolves are rare]]).
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Normally. Unfortunately, [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=759 this]] strip shows that it's currently [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting involuntary]], as long as her talisman is broken.
* WeaknessTurnsHerOn: Fans [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy who ship her with Conrad]] tend to portray their relationship this way.

!'''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 AbusiveParents, and for another, one of his parents is not quite human.

* AbusiveParents:
** His dad clubs baby seals.
** We don't know much about his mom, but their relationship probably isn't great either: he once commented that he's lucky she didn't [[OffingTheOffspring drown him as a baby]] out of spite.
* AnimalMotifs: Sharks
* DeadpanSnarker: More snark than deadpannery, but still.
* GogglesDoNothing: Veser has a pair of goggles hanging around his neck, but he hasn't been seen using them yet.
* GreenEyes: hinting at both his unusual parentage and his connection with nature.
* HalfHumanHybrid: He's is the child of a human and a selkie, although he doesn't really have much to show for it but a wonderfully dysfunctional family.
* HandsomeLech: Those shark teeth don't stop the ladies, apparently. He's almost to the point of AnythingThatMoves, if the artist's doodles are anything to judge from.
* HotbloodedSideburns
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/It-Was-Bound-To-146817083 Rawr.]]
%%* NonHumanSidekick

!'''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 [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=679 current storyline]].

* {{Asexuality}}: Stone stated in a recent live stream that he's borderline.
%%* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel
* EvilOverlooker: in the poster. Even if he's probably not evil.
* JekyllAndHyde
* KaleidoscopeEyes: They go from blue to gold in his first two appearances, more than the lighting would seem to account for.
* NeverGetsDrunk: Ples [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/Ples-Doodledump-154820256 "does seem to drink a lot though, according to friends and co-workers. But he holds his liquor very well and never seems to get drunk in front of others."]]
%%* SharpDressedMan
%%* SkunkStripe
%%* StraightGay
%%* WaistcoatOfStyle
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He is [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/If-I-Doodledumped-150953667 37]], but looks considerably older than that.

!'''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.

* DemBones: As a ghost, he looks like a glowing skeleton.
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
%%* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter
* HonoraryUncle: To Veser, bordering on ParentalSubstitute.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: He and Veser seemed pretty close, although Lee was oblivious to the cause of the latter's bruises and sour disposition.
* LossOfIdentity: He kept his memories after he died, but lost his personality and conscience. [[ShadowArchetype Making him the opposite of Zombie, in a way]].
%%* NiceGuy
* UnluckyEverydude: Lee was in love with his best friend's wife, which was the cause of his undoing.
%%* WhodunnitToMe

!'''Casimiro and Finas'''


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.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Casimiro's skin is quite dark for a vampire. WordOfGod says that, being Italian, Cas was just very tanned when he died.
* BigBrotherMentor: One could imagine that Casimiro's brashness gets him into trouble more often than not. Fortunately, he has the older, wiser Finas to tell him when to [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=447 sit down and shut up]].
* CheshireCatGrin: Casimiro's the kind of guy who will cheerfully kick you in the face and tell you it was just [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=435 "in good fun"]]. At times he seems to [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=582 walk the line]] between CheshireCatGrin and SlasherSmile.
* FullyEmbracedFiend
* GoodHairEvilHair: Cas has a soul patch. Finas rocks a goatee.
* TheHedonist: both of them, according to the cast page.
* HotBlooded: Casimiro.
* MulticoloredHair: Casimiro's is part black, part lighter brown.
* OddCouple
%%* RedEyesTakeWarning: all vampires.
* RedOniBlueOni: Casimiro is red, Finas is blue.
* StoutStrength: Finas, who looks stout compared to the rest of the characters (excluding Lamont) but is actually [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/Soooooooo-Manly-160082013 all muscle underneath]].
* TheStoic: Finas.
* TranquilFury: Casimiro may actually be scarier [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=582 after he calms down.]]
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: All vampires are ''supposed'' to be capable of this.


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.

* ActionGirl: Since vampires are very strong, her injuring-people-and-zombies skills are particularly impressive.
%%* BatOutOfHell
* TheCatCameBack: While there is no word on how their last meeting actually went, Lamont’s reaction to seeing her in his car makes it seem like he might be a little …''nervous'', about her return.
%%* CheshireCatGrin: A [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=27 subtle one.]]
%%* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
%%* FangsAreEvil
%%* FemmeFatale
* HairColorDissonance: She's been drawn with either purple or dark green hair. It's actually black. Also, if there's such a thing as Eye Color Dissonance then that applies too, since they're often rendered as pink or purple instead of the red that all vampires have.
* KillerRabbit: [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=22 This]] is the horrible vampire that maimed Zombie and killed Conrad.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: She is a pinkish purple when in bat form.
** And in some panels appears to be wearing [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=25 lipstick]]. As a bat.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* WomanScorned: Implied in the [[AllThereInTheManual interviews]].

!'''Lamont Toucey'''

Doc Worth's partner in crime and [[VitriolicBestBuds friend]]. Looking like a member of TheMafia, 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.

* CharacterTics: Laughs nervously when uncomfortable.
%%* KnowledgeBroker
* LuminescentBlush: [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/Fairly-Unlikely-161487662 Cue fangirl squealing.]] [[strike: [[{{EpilepticTrees}} And]] [[{{WomanScorned}} speculation]]. ]]
%%* NiceGuy
* PointlessBandaid: Usually depicted with a bandage on his cheek.
* VitriolicBestBuds: As stated above, he and Worth express their friendship by hitting each other. Also it seems like Worth might be one of the few people he allows himself to act rudely towards.

!'''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).

* BadassNormal: One of the few truly ''human'' characters in the cast, and also one of the most badass.
%%* EvilRedhead
%%* FlawExploitation: Supposedly the route to [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/If-I-Doodledumped-150953667 defeating him]].
* LoyalAnimalCompanion: Paradox goes almost everywhere with him, [[http://vert-is-ninja.deviantart.com/art/Mercy-Kill-149264187 even while vampire-hunting. ]]
* MalevolentMaskedMen: He wears a surgical mask, accompanied by goggles. This means that his only visible facial feature in the vampire-hunting getup is his eyebrows.
* MulticoloredHair (part red, part black)
%%* NeatFreak
%%* PunchClockVillain
* VampireHunter Hunter of vampires. Don't take it personally, though. After all, he is a professional.
%%* VanHelsingHateCrimes
%%* WeaselMascot
