    Main Characters 

Stanley H. Tweedle

May His Merciful Shadow fall upon ... me, preferably.

Played by Brian Downey.

Zev / Xev Bellringer of B3K

It's not easy being programmed for love and never finding it.

Played by Eva Habermann (as Zev), Xenia Seeberg (as Xev) and Lisa Hines (pre-love slave Zev).

Kai, Last of the Brunnen-G

I am well qualified to speak for the dead.

Played by Michael McManus.


Tweedle, you give carbon molecules a bad name.

Voiced by Jeffrey Hirschfield.

The Lexx

My captain is Stanley Tweedle. I blow up planets for him.

Voiced by Tom Gallant.

  • Bizarre Alien Biology
  • Cool Ship
  • The Ditz: Is not the brightest tool in the shed, and the show's writers have stated that they intended it to be a bit like a "big, dumb dog".
  • Insectoid Aliens
  • Living Ship: And very living, most metal and control bits are clearly installed later. And the ship's living nature means it needs to eat.
  • Planet Eater: The Lexx feeds itself by stripping organic material from planets; in "Eating Pattern," when it lands on a planet where the surface is mostly barren, it seems to sift through the dirt for nutrients buried within; while in "Dutch Treat," it flies low over the surface and sucks up the more obvious nutrients (trees, grass, animals, the population of Holland) like a vacuum cleaner. On a few occasions, the Lexx will eat bits of planets it blows up, but doesn't get very much out of it since it's "just a snack".
  • Samus Is a Girl
  • Sapient Ship
  • Wave Motion Gun


His Divine Shadow / Giga Shadow

First will come the Cleansing, which will feed the Rebirth. The Giga Shadow is the new life beyond order. A time of pain and rejoicing. Our destiny.

Voiced by Walter Borden.


Overkill? It is my style! I think ... big.

Played by Dieter Laser.

Prince of Fire / Isambard Prince

I'm very good with pain.

Played by Nigel Bennett.


You think you can destroy me? You think you can hunt the hunter?

Played by Minna Aaltonen

  • Badass: Divine Assassins are indestructible cyborgs who can survive being blown up with a planet. Vlad is a Divine Executioner, the being sent to destroy Divine Assassins who have gone rogue.
  • Cape Wings
  • Cyborg: She was created in much the same way as Kai.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • The Dreaded: It's a testament to her skill that Kai doubts his own skills.
  • For the Evulz: She agrees with Kai that there is no point in pursuing her directive to destroy now that His Divine Shadow is dead, but keeps doing it because it brings her pleasure.
  • Hero Killer
  • Implacable Woman
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Even more so than Kai. Apparently the power of killers in the service of His Divine Shadow is denoted by the goofiness of their hair. The bigger the badass, the crazier the 'do.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: She is the source of all vampire mythology on Earth.

    Recurring and Minor Characters 

Giggerota the Wicked

Put on a show for Giggerota!

Played by Ellen Dubin.

  • Ambiguously Human: She looks human, and technically wouldn't be a "cannibal" otherwise, but her long, prehensile tongue and superhuman physiology (she's incredibly strong and capable of surviving a fall of what looked like several hundred meters) make her species ambiguous. No other similar entity appears in the series. Well, other than the several dozen other cannibal women, but they're not connected either.
  • Arch-Enemy Even though she dies in the second episode, she's reincarnated to continue to haunt Stan. First as a queen on Planet Fire and the Pope in Series 4. 'Patches in the sky' confirms this as she's used to represent Stan's nightmare and she takes over the Narco-Lounger.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She will eat just about anything that can be classified as "organic". Including bits of the Lexx.
  • I'm a Humanitarian
  • Karmic Death: First she gets abandoned on a planet with the sun about to go nova because she kept ripping pieces off her moth to eat and telling it to shut up when it protested and then ends up being eaten when she reincarnates on Earth after getting a carnivorous plant excited about eating people.
  • Large Ham
  • Overly Long Tongue: With a sharp-toothed mouth on the end of it.
  • Third-Person Person


Today, I, Thodin...

Played by Barry Bostwick.


Played by Louise Wischermann.

  • Blue and Orange Morality: A predator to the core, she eats people without any moral qualms at all, and Kai, in season 4, sees no reason to stop "Lyekka's twin sister Lyekka" from eating a chunk of the planet.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: While childish and seemingly innocent and benign, she is nearly as dangerous as Kai and has a portfolio of powers.
  • Face–Heel Turn: While not the same character, the Lyekka from season four is far more sinister and antagonistic than the entity from season 2.
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: How she prevents her prey from struggling as she consumes them.
  • Woman Child: She has a very childish, slow way of speaking and reacting to things, such as calling things she wants to eat "yummy."
  • Morality Chain: Lyekka is an amoral predator, but she has a soft spot for the crew, especially Stanley.
  • Naked on Arrival
  • Nice Hat: She wears an odd, cylindrical pop-corn-bucket-like cap "Apocalexx Now."
  • No Biological Sex: Although she takes on a female form and mannerisms.
  • Planet of Steves: There are a couple of Lyekkas - "Lyekka" the nicer one in Season 2, "Lyekka," created by the Gardeners on Water in Season 3, and "Lyekka's twin sister Lyekka," the antagonist from season 4. Every Lyekka is named Lyekka, and uses the same form, the girl from Stanley's dreams.
  • Plant Aliens
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: For most of her on-screen time she takes the form of a girl Stanley once had a crush on, having learned of the girl's name and appearance from his dreams. She also tends to shift into outfits that feature in Stanley's dreams, too (which, given that this is Stan we're talking about, are rather tight and quite revealing outfits).
  • Warm Bloodbags Are Everywhere: She is very matter-of-fact about this: she'd "prefer" not to eat her human friends, but deprived of other food sources, she would.


It's not rocket surgery!

Played by Patricia Zentilli.

Reginald J. Priest

Played by Rolf Kanies.
