The Main Characters

    Bo 

Bo/Isabeau Dennis

Portrayed by: Anna Silk

Bo is a bisexual Succubus raised by human parents who adopted her as an infant. During her first sexual experience, she involuntarily killed her high school boyfriend by draining him of his Chi. Not knowing what she had done and why it had happened, Bo ran away from home. For ten years, before she was discovered by the Fae, she lived a life without friends or family, moving from place to place, and changing identities each time she killed again. It was not until she was helped by the Light Fae's human physician and scientist that she finally learned what she was and how to control her chi-draining powers.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Bo's streetwear usually shows a lot of cleavage. When she's dressed up, she shows even more. For example, in the pilot episode, where she's bartending at a night club, she wears a black shirt unbuttoned almost to her navel.
  • Action Girl: Bo's adventures often lead to fights, usually with Fae opponents. In the beginning episodes she doesn't quite know what she's up against and often ends up in tricky situations. Fortunately, she has her friends to help her.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Not entirely aloof; just compared with Kenzi and Lauren. And Dyson's definitely more aloof than Bo.
  • Amateur Sleuth: Bo's not as great a detective as Dyson and Hale, but she till moonlights as one to hel people.
  • The Atoner: Bo feels extreme guilt for her murder spree in the past, and making up for it is likely her motivation for becoming a detective. "Raging Fae" showcases it very well.
  • Aura Vision: She can see sexual auras, even when she can't see the person that they're coming from. The viewers have not been shown what this looks like on-screen.
  • Badass Longcoat: She sometimes wears a longcoat when kicking ass in a fight.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Bo has a Kiss of Death but is still one of the most moral characters on the show.
  • Berserk Button: Threatening to kill and eat Lauren is not a good idea around Bo. Or harming any of her friends, for that matter.
  • Bi the Way: To Bo, people of both genders are equally good sources of sexual energy. She also has no gender preference when forming romantic relationships.
  • Cartwright Curse: Bo's power is to suck the life out of her partners.
    • Subverted pretty quickly: Both Lauren and Dyson survive, and Ryan leaves under okay circumstances.
  • Charm Person: One of the perks of being a succubus.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Bo has an almost pathological need to help people, and goes to great lengths to protect her clients and friends from danger.
  • Drunk with Power: Yeah... happens to her a good bit in Season 2 and 3...
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: In the pilot, she murders a troll without remorse. In later episodes, she more clearly follows a "never kill" policy. (Or, at least, tries to.) Of course, before the pilot, she didn't know that not killing was an option...
  • Eleventh Hour Superpower: When Lauren is threatened by the lich and his minions, combined with a side order of The Power of Love. Bo doesn't remember what she did or how she did it, but there were elements of God Save Us from the Queen! at that point. Happens again later after her Dawning, after she passes it at the cost of Dyson's life.
    • "Dark Horse" reveals that she inherited this from her father; namely, the ability to use her power on multiple victims at once.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Passing the Fae initiation in the pilot episode due to Kenzi's interference helps her realize which side really cares for her:
    The Ash: This one has passed the test. It has been witnessed. Child, you may name your side.
    Bo: Neither! I choose humans!
  • Even the Girls Want Her: A few straight female characters like Kenzi have remarked on Bo's attractiveness
  • Going Commando: Bo tells Tamsin that she doesn't even have panties. In some other episodes, she is wearing panties, though, so either Bo or the writers aren't quite consistent.
  • Hero Protagonist: Bo is the main character of the show and it's most moral.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Kenzi, whom she calls her sister (even though Bo isn't heterosexual, Kenzi makes it very clear that she is).
  • Horny Devil: Bo is arguably a deconstruction of this trope, since she tries to stay in one (emotionally) monogamous relationship, even though she has to have sex to stay alive and Lauren can't give her enough.
  • Knife Nut: They're her go-to weapon, after her succubus powers.
  • Lingerie Scene: In most episodes.
  • Love Triangle: With Lauren and Dyson.
  • Love You and Everybody: Bo pulls this on Lauren in the second season finale, despite the fact that only she and Lauren are present:
    Bo: I love you...all, so much.
  • Meaningful Name: Bo sounds like Beau, which means "beauty." It may also be intended to be a backhanded reference to Little Bo Peep, only in this case Bo has lost her family and not her sheep. Incidentally, her birth name is Isabeau, after her grandmother, Trick's wife.
  • Mind Control: An offshoot of her succubus powers. It's less outright control than influence, however.
  • Mommy Issues: With both her adoptive mom and her biological mom.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Stripperific clothing, lingerie scenes, nude scenes, sex scenes—you name it. Justified because she is a succubus who feeds off sexual energy.
  • Occult Detective: Bo's neutral status (neither Light nor Dark) is handy when investigating various mysteries involving Fae. Bo and Kenzi find that they can make a living doing this.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Bo's biological (Fae) parents abandoned her, for reasons unknown. She then had to leave home as a teen after her powers awakened.
  • Parental Abandonment: One of the main plot arcs of the entire series is her figuring out her parentage. She finds her mother near the end of season 1; her father has yet to be revealed as of season 4.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Bo is described by many characters as incredibly beautiful looking.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With both Dyson and Lauren. And as of season 4, with Reynard.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Bo displays one when Lauren is threatened. She doesn't remember how or what she did afterwards, though.
    • Reappears in the finale. And Season 3...
  • Take a Third Option: How she deals with being given a Sadistic Choice.
  • Technical Pacifist: She normally follows a no-kill policy as much as possible. That said, if a bad guy is really evil, she has NO qualms about, say...leaving him to his victims. She has done this thrice, and has no guilt over it whatsoever. (Once, she even did it INSTEAD of imprisonment.)
    • And she poisoned the Garuda to death.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the beginning she often loses fights against other Fae, to a large extent because she doesn't quite know what she's up against. She trains to become a better fighter and studies the lore of the Fae to be better prepared.
  • The Unfettered: At least that's how the other Fae see her. Bo is actually a subversion as she refuses to take a side precisely because of her moral code.
  • Vapor Wear: Bo often inverts this trope by wearing skimpy or see-through clothing to show off her underwear, rather than her lack of underwear. She often plays it straight as well, with backless tops and/or Absolute Cleavage.
  • The Watson: Bo doesn't have a clue about the Fae or how Fae society works, and frequently needs things explained to her.
  • Woman in Black: She normally wears predominantly black clothes, but sometimes wears more cheerful colours.

     Kenzi 

Kenzi/Mackenzie Malikov

Portrayed by: Ksenia Solo

Kenzi is a human and Bo's best friend and sidekick. Kenzi is extremely protective of Bo and does not take kindly to anyone she considers as not having her BFF's best interests at heart. At times she has been rash and does not always make the best decisions, although never intentionally. She has become very close to Trick and seeks his advice often. She and Hale have become close, not only because both know what it's like to be the "sidekick", but also from an underlying attraction towards each other. Her relationships with Dyson and Lauren are friendly but more guarded, due to the fact that both have at one time or another hurt Bo because of the romantic feelings she has for both of them.

  • Abusive Parents: Kenzi's stepfather is said to have locked her in a closet for as little as laughing too loud, and generally made her childhood miserable enough that she came close on several occasions to summoning Baba Yaga to kill him.
  • Anime Hair: Some of the hairstyles we see are (but not limited to) a hair mohawk, two separate blonde wigs, a pink bob-cut type of wig, and her usual-and actually natural-black, straight Hime Cut.
  • Chainsaw Good: In Season 2, when she REALLY wants something from someone who's REALLY pissed her off.
  • Chickification: In Seasons 1 and 2, she manages to pull plenty of Badass moments and keep up with the others despite being The Team Normal. Season 3 saw Kenzi becoming much whinier and needier towards the other Fae characters and bemoaning her status as a non-Fae. She still manages an impressive scene or two, but the contrast is staggering.
  • Lingerie Scene:
    • She wears corsets as outerwear, so some episodes are almost walking lingerie scenes.
    • At home, she spends a lot of time in her pajamas (which at least technically would count as lingerie) even outside of her bedroom. This is played for cuteness rather than sexiness, but it's still a kind of Fanservice.
  • Lovable Rogue: She has had to support herself by stealing and living by her wits for a long time, and is adept at disguises and stealth. The "lovable" part is perhaps as much a survival strategy as an integral part of her personality.
  • Meganekko: Defied. In Season 2, Dyson mentions that her eyes aren't very good after a Body Swap, but we never see or hear anything else about glasses or contacts—and by the face she makes when he says it, we can assume we won't.
    • It's possible that this is a result of him having superior senses as a Fae (or wolf) so he feels normal human eyesight is weak.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Unlike Bo, she keeps her clothes on most of the time, but sometimes shows a lot of leg and/or cleavage. Not to mention her wearing corsets as outerwear. Maybe, fanservice on a more aesthetic but less sexual way?
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Bo.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: She traded the Twig of Zamora to Massimo for more fake-Fae cream. This allows Massimo to survive being thrown into a fire pit and get his revenge by killing Hale.
  • Nice Shoes: One of the kinds of clothes she goes gaga for.
    • Author Appeal: If someone on the writing staff has a thing for feet. Either way, Kenzi has a thing for feet, as spelled out in Season 2's "Original Skin."
  • Odd Friendship: She and Hale develop one over the course of the first season, sympathizing over playing second fiddle to fairly Badass leading character types.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: Kenzi often wears them as outerwear.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Kenzi has been on the street since she was 10.
  • Perky Goth: Her clothing style leans towards the gothic, with corsets and lace, usually in black, but her general disposition is lively and optimistic.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She often affects this look as part of her gothic style, but she varies her raven hair with wigs in bright colours, or platinum-blonde.
  • Screwy Squirrel: A mild case.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: In "The Girl Who Fae'd With Fire."
  • Shipper on Deck: Bo/Dyson all the way. Vex actually calls her on her bias in Season 3.
  • Sticky Fingers: Kenzi's original "profession" is thief, and she often finds it hard to resist the urge to pick up and keep various objects that she "finds".
  • Street Smart/Book Dumb: As made perfectly clear in a third season episode, when she rattles off street-level criminal knowledge without batting an eyelash, but thinks Che Guevara is a t-shirt designer for angry youth.
  • What Beautiful Eyes: Ksenia Solo, who plays Kenzi, has very striking eyes, which are particularly noticeable due to the heavy eyeshadow she wears.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Baba Yaga?
    • And hospitals. She REALLY doesn't like hospitals.

    Dyson 

Dyson

Portrayed by: Kristen Holden-Reid

Dyson is a Light Fae Wolf-Shifter and serves secretly as Trick's 'lieutenant'. Dyson works in the human world as a homicide police detective in the 39th Division Homicide Squad. Though at first glance he appears middle-aged, he is actually 1,500 years old. He spent centuries in Ireland serving the Laignach Faelad wolf-shifter King of Ailech with his best friend, Stefan. In terms of shifter tradition, warriors like Dyson fearlessly and unquestioningly believed in total loyalty to their King. This changed when the King betrayed his wolf pack and had his best friend, Stefan, killed to take his wife, Ciara, for himself. After this, Dyson left his pack for good, becoming, in effect, a lone wolf. (This might explain why Dyson sometimes gives the impression of being "cold".)

  • Armor-Piercing Question: When a Fae who can extract truth from people asks him if he loves Ciara, his reply, to his surprise, is "I can't love her!" This helps him realize that the Norn took so much more out of him than he thought.
  • The Casanova: Is legendary in his precinct for his ability to get testimonies out of female witnesses.
  • Dirty Cop: Played with. While he and Hale take the "to serve and protect" part of their jobs seriously, they are primarily concerned with covering up evidence of Fae activities. In addition, it becomes clear after the first episode that his loyalties lie with Trick and not the Ash.
  • Fatal Flaw: His inability to TALK with people. Much of the problems, and his entire Season 2 arc, could have been helped if he just explained things.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Season 1, he was willing to give up his wolf to save Bo, but the Norn chose to take his love instead. Later, in Season 3, he volunteers to be Bo's hand in her Dawning, knowing that it would cost him his life. Thankfully, Bo's Eleventh Hour Superpower kicked in, allowing her to revive him.
  • Ladykiller in Love: Until the Norn took away his love for Bo. Then got it back.
    • Even when he DOES lose his love...he still acts like this trope. With Ciara as well — despite not being able to love her.
  • Love Triangle: With Bo and Lauren.
  • Magic Pants: Averted.

    Hale 

Hale The (Acting) Ash III

Portrayed by: K.C. Collins

Hale Santiago (né William Haley François Santiago) is a Light Fae Siren. In the first two seasons of the series, Hale worked out of the 39th Division of the human police force as Dyson's partner in the homicide department. He is a Baronet of noble blood of Clan Zamora. Although Hale is of a high social status from a family that has significant importance among the Light Fae, he has generally ignored his social and political connections as he prefers to explore a life of his own rather than the traditional roles expected of his family.

  • Demoted to Extra: In Season 3 due to K.C. Collins being busy with other projects and also Hale being busy as the currently acting Ash which fits quite nicely.
  • Dirty Cop: Played with. While he and Dyson take the "to serve and protect" part of their jobs seriously, they are primarily concerned with covering up evidence of Fae activities.
  • Drunk with Power: While he is being a total dick as the Ash, this is defied by Lauren, who claims that power doesn't corrupt people; it reveals them. He has yet to actually abuse his power, though.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: His full name and title is "Baronet William Haley Francoise Santiago of Clan Zamora."
  • Enthralling Siren: A Rare Male Example.
  • My Sister Is Off Limits: Hale is extremely pissed when he finds his sister fooling around with Dyson in "The Girl Who Fae'd With Fire."
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Hale is the heir to one of the three most powerful Fae noble clans but chose to become a police officer and interact with humans on a daily basis.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Sadly seems to be turning out to be as much of a jerk as his predecessors in the role of Ash.

    Lauren 

Lauren Lewis/Karen Beattie

Portrayed by: Zoie Palmer

Dr. Lauren Lewis is a human scientist and physician. At the time the series begins, she had been owned by The Ash as a pledged servant, and in servitude to the Light Fae, for five years.

  • Adorkable: Often she's calm and collected, but when she's excited about something, she's really excited about it (for instance, when she wins a science award and is almost literally bouncing off the walls with glee).
  • Badass Bookworm: Is able to come up with a cure for a Fae plague (which the Fae themselves couldn't do), a way to stabilize Lachlan's blood and a way to use Hale's powers to save Kenzi's life. Even the Garuda, who considers humans somewhere below dirt on the evolutionary scale, calls her smart. However, she's perfectly capable of terrifying Vex when she wants to, and has held her own with the Fae (who despise humans) for more than five years.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She hints at one. When Kenzi talks about how she had a normal upbringing, she emotionally responds that Kenzi doesn't know anything about her.
    • In Season 3, we learn that she's a wanted criminal and her real name is Karen Beattie. Turns out she was an eco-terrorist until a bomb she made killed eleven people, though she claims that she didn't want anyone to get hurt.
  • Deus Angst Machina: Every season, the writers seem out to traumatize Lauren in new and fantastic ways.
  • Easily Forgiven: Averted; Bo is deeply hurt when it's revealed that Lauren was ordered to sleep with her and ignores her apologies and attempts to explain. The revelation that Trick and Dyson were also lying to her seems to be what motivates Bo into forgiving her. Kenzi is seemingly still holding a grudge in Season 2.
  • Face-Heel Turn: She is kidnapped by the Dark Fae and eventually decides to work for them instead of the Light Fae, since their cage is slightly more gilded.
  • For Science!: Lauren's reason for working with the Fae. Well, that's the reason she gives anyway. The real reason is her girlfriend Nadia was stricken ill, and then lapsed into a coma, by a disease that was supposed to only affect Fae. The Ash offered Lauren all the resources she wanted to finding a cure, in exchange for becoming a slave to the Light Fae.
  • Happiness in Slavery: She is the property of the Ash, leader of the Light Fae, but is generally content with her lot in life. She finds her scientific research into Fae physiology to be intellectually rewarding, and her medical expertise, and the fact that she is owned by the Ash, gives her a fair amount of prestige and influence among the Light Fae. She is unmistakably a slave, however.
    • Deconstructed in Season 2, where her treatment under the new Ash takes a turn for the worse, and it is revealed that she actually joined the Ash to keep her girlfriend Nadia alive and to have a chance at curing Nadia's mysterious ailment, and it's later revealed that the Ash ordered her cursed to obtain Lauren as his slave in the first place. She also later admits to Bo that the five years she spent as a slave have been rather bleak for her; and considering how reserved she is, that probably means horrible.
    • In Season 3, she grows increasingly unhappy with being the property of the Ash, eventually leaving to work with a human who tries to steal Fae powers, then getting kidnapped by the Dark Fae, who she willingly decides to work for, reasoning that their cage is at least a bit more gilded than her treatment by the Light.
  • Hidden Depths: As we (and Kenzi) find out in Season 3, this Yale-educated doctor is also an Afghanistan veteran.
    • She also averted the shower scene from Psycho... with a forearm block.
    • She later reveals that she knows how to make pipe bombs.
    • Taken Up to Eleven in "Adventures in Faebysitting," where it's revealed her birth name is Karen Beattie and she's wanted internationally.
  • Sex Slave: Played with. No one ever uses the word "slave" to refer to Lauren, but she does refer to herself as the "property" of the Ash, and for all the influence and prestige she enjoys among the Light Fae, she is clearly a slave. This trope comes into play when the Ash orders her to seduce and sleep with Bo. Granted, she very much liked and wanted Bo, but it's still the case that she didn't have a choice in the matter. Bo still holds it against her for awhile.
  • Slave Collar: The pendant Lauren wears marks her as the Ash's property. It's just symbolic, though.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: By Season 3, most of the B-plots of a given episode have to do with her or her romantic issues with Bo. Compare to Season 1 when she only appeared to play The Smart Guy.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Bo.
  • Supreme Chef: When it comes to baking at least.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Though not a in a physical way, she is a good deal more forceful and assertive in Season 4 due to being sick of being screwed over by the Fae. Evony — the Morrigan, of all Fae — finds out the hard way just how badass Lauren's become.

    Trick 

Fitzpatrick McCorrigan aka Trick

Portrayed by: Rick Howland

Trick (né Fitzpatrick Mc Corrigan) is an Ancient Light Fae Blood Sage and the legendary Blood King who wrote the peace truce that ended The Great War between the Light Fae and Dark Fae clans, and the Blood Laws that govern them. He is responsible for the creation of The Una Mens.

  • Badass Grandpa: One of the older characters in the show, and potentially the oldest of the main cast. Also actually Bo's grandfather, as revealed in the penultimate episode of Season 2.
  • The Bartender: So he prefers to be.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He can be downright terrifying when angry.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: In the pilot, he advises the Ash and Morrigan to let Bo stay unaligned for as long as it useful, and then kill her. Even if he was playing them, this doesn't seem to fit with his later characterizations. It isn't even mentioned again.
  • Eccentric Mentor: To Dyson, and to some extent to Bo and Kenzi.
  • Has a Type: Trick likes the dominant, ball-buster type. They really get to him.
  • Knowledge Broker: Due both to his being the Blood King and that his bar is one of the few places open to both Light and Dark Fae.
  • King Incognito: Trick is the Blood King of the Fae.
  • Little People Are Surreal: Averted. Trick's being much smaller than the rest of the cast is unremarked upon, and when another little person figures into the plot, it turns out he's related to Trick. It seems to be just another Fae marker for that particular species.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Trick is Aoife's father and therefore Bo's grandfather.
  • My Greatest Failure: Although he enforced the peace between the Light and Dark Fae, he did so only after his wife was killed.
  • Reality Warper: As the Blood King, practically anything he writes in his blood will inevitably come to pass. Season 4 reveals he even wrote Reynard out of existence!

    Vex 

Vex

Portrayed by: Paul Amos

Vex is a Dark Fae Mesmer and the hitman for The Morrígan. The Dark employ him to deal with any Dark Fae who break the clan's rules. His power has been used to convince a human police force that his victims either committed suicide or murdered each other, or to have them execute a Fae considered criminal.

  • Faux Affably Evil: As of Season 3, though, he seems to be shifting more into Affably Evil territory.
    • Officially shifts in "ConFaegion." Even if he didn't INTENTIONALLY save Kenzi's life, he actually feels bad about being evil.
  • The Gadfly: Vex really seems to enjoy pissing other people off.
  • Hidden Depths: He's very meticulous with his makeup, and genuinely laments the fate of his kind, to the point that he listens intently to one of Trick's tales about his father.
  • Humanity Is Infectious: Much to his annoyance, Kenzi seems to be having an effect on him.
  • Jerkass: Humiliates the Morrigan who is, by all accounts, shown to be a political ally, for no apparent reason other than for laughs in Season 2. It is revealed he did it partially to be thrown in prison, where an angry gang of soccer-loving Fae who he conned couldn't get to him.
  • Last of His Kind: The last Mesmer.
  • Life or Limb Decision: In "Let The Dark Times Roll", he cuts off his hand to prevent a poison in it from spreading to the rest of him. Lauren does stitch it back for him later on.
  • Meaningful Name: See The Gadfly above.
  • People Puppets: His power; he can control the physical movements of others using his hands.
  • Say My Name: Often on the receiving end of this for irritating the Morrigan.
  • Superpower Lottery: His power is arguably one of the most dangerous in the series. All he needs is his hands free and he can make others kill themselves. Which is why his kind have been persecuted throughout history, having their hands cut off and dying of starvation.
  • Token Evil Teammate: In the struggle against the Garuda, mostly because Bo busted him out of Dark Fae prison and he owed her.
    • This seems to be a permanent shift as of Season 3, as he becomes an unwilling house guest of Bo and Kenzi, as he can't go back to the Morrigan.
    • In "Those Who Wander," he reappears to capture the Morrigan for Hale.
  • Walk the Earth: As of "ConFaegion," in order to sort himself out.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Or would make someone else hurt a child at least.
  • Vitriolic Best Friends: He used to have this relationship with the Morrigan. Now he seems to be shifting over to Kenzi.

    Tamsin 

Tamsin

Portrayed by: Rachel Skarsten

Tamsin is a Valkyrie who works as a Bounty Hunter and Mercenary for the Dark Fae.

  • Affably Evil: So far, at least.
    • She becomes even more affable and barely at all evil in Season 4 (she's still technically Dark Fae, but is firmly an ally of Bo's and a powerful friend of Kenzi and Dyson's).
  • Bi the Way: According to Word of God. Confirmed in the show in "Fae-ge Against the Machine" when she kisses Bo.
  • Blessed with Suck: Being a Valkyrie might not be quite as awesome as it sounds.
    Tamsin: Sometimes when I like people, I have to make them go away.
  • Born-Again Immortality: Valkyries have many lives. They do, however, eventually have a last life, which is when they get their wings.
  • Bounty Hunter: As a day job, until she "pissed off the wrong people."
  • Dark Magical Girl: Starting to edge into this.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Shows signs of this, especially in "The Kenzi Scale."
  • Inspector Javert: She's trying to prove that Bo has been feeding on Dark Fae, a big no-no. The investigation eventually leads them to Taft, exonerating Bo in the process.
  • Jerkass
  • Kick the Dog: When she tells Lauren about the kiss she and Bo shared. Not only is she lying about the circumstances, she's clearly enjoying preying on Lauren's insecurities.
  • Pet the Dog: Several times in "The Kenzi Scale," even going as far as lying to the Morrigan about some very damning testimony against Bo, despite trying to prove Bo's guilt for the better part of the season.
    • More like hugging the dog to death when she catches a bullet for Bo. Afterwards she tells Bo that this is the last nice thing she's ever going to do for her.
  • Power Degeneration: Possibly. Using her powers seems to hasten her death.
  • Secretly Dying: A result of her lifespan running out.
  • Shipper on Deck: Like Kenzi, she prefers Bo/Dyson. It helps that she's closer to both of them individually than to Lauren.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Dyson, given that he's Light Fae and she's Dark Fae, and also that her mission is apparently to find concrete proof that Bo has been feeding off of Dark Fae.
  • Token Evil Teammate: She is Dyson's partner, and also Dark Fae.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Is actually a pleasant person in Season 4, due to being raised by Bo and Kenzi.
  • Uh-Oh Eyes: Make her look like "Skeletor", according to Bo. They turn up whenever she uses her power, plaguing the victim with doubt.
  • UST: Between her and Dyson, although they've already kissed at least once, so it may not stay unresolved for long.
    • Also between Bo and her, though in a more Foe Yay form.

    Reynard 

Reynard

  • Badass: To subvert the Una Mens' ability to use a Fae's own powers against them, Reynard uses his foresight to help Bo fight off the Una Mens in his stead. Eventually, the two of them succeed in killing them all off.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the Season 4 finale "Dark Horse."
  • Ret Gone: Why nobody knows anything about him. The Blood King wrote him out of existence for his defiance.
  • The Reveal: He's Reynard, the Blood King's nemesis, who got written out of existence as punishment for his rebellion.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Bo, of all people. As if her Love Triangle wasn't complicated enough, she calls him "her destiny." Not a single person in the main cast was pleased with that announcement.
  • Superpower Lottery: Almost on par with Vex. Reynard's power is foresight, making him a very formidable warrior—to the point that the Blood King had to use his own powers to trump Reynard's.

Main Antogonists

    Saskia/Aoife 

Saskia/Aife

Portrayed by: Inga Cadranel

Aife is Bo's succubus birth mother. She called herself "Saskia" in Season 1.

  • Antagonistic Offspring: Heavily implied to be one to Trick. His handing her over to be tortured and raped probably had something to do with that.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: After centuries of torture and rape, she's gone from Light Fae to essentially acting as Dark Fae, though without loyalty to the Morrigan. It's later implied that she only aligned with the Dark out of spite for her father Trick.
  • Berserk Button: The amulet that negates chi-draining seems to be this for her: she flies into a rage and tries to kill Bo when she discovers Bo wore one when she confronted her.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 1.
  • The Bus Came Back: In "Hail, Hale."
  • Dying as Yourself: The Blood King's power breaks through her insanity. Except she didn't actually die.
  • Evil Mentor: For Bo, as a succubus. Doesn't appreciate that Bo isn't living the life of Riley.
  • Faux Affably Evil: If her intro episode didn't make it clear, Episode 12 explains it. She tries to murder Dyson in cold blood, with sheer, manic glee.
  • Horny Devil: She is the first succubus (except for herself) that Bo meets.
  • Meaningful Name: Not so much Saskia, but Aoife, which means "pleasure" or "radiance," but is also sometimes anglicized as Eva...Eve.
  • Missing Mom: To Bo.
  • Never Found the Body: It was gone by the time Bo got down to it. She finally reappears in Season 3.
  • Parental Incest: Kisses Bo full on the mouth. Makes you wonder what Succubi do with their young to teach them how to control their powers...
  • Superpowered Evil Side: She may, in fact, have been in hers the ENTIRE TIME. Using Thralls like she did...is NOT good for mental health.
  • Walking Spoiler: For the first season.
  • The Vamp: The first other succubus that Bo (and the viewers) meet.

    The Garuda 

The Garuda

Played by: Raoul Trujillo

The Garuda was a member of an Ancient race predating the Fae.

  • Emotion Eater: He feeds on the Faes' hatred and aggression.
  • Flaming Sword: His Weapon of Choice.
  • The Ghost: He's first mentioned about halfway into Season 2, but doesn't appear in person until the climax of it.
  • Hate Plague: Arguably his most dangerous power; he can infect other individuals with his sheer hatred.
  • Hot Wings: He occasionally flares a pair out, presumably just to intimidate.
  • Last of His Kind: Due to the Blood King ending the Fae War and starving his kind.
  • Made of Iron: He appears to be vulnerable only to the venom of a hydra.

    Dr. Isaac Taft 

Dr. Issac Taft is a manipulative and psychotic human scientist.

    Wanderer 

  • The Dreaded: The only thing we really know about him is that the few Fae who seem to be aware of him are terrified of crossing him.
  • Everyone Calls Him Barkeep: He's known only as "The Wanderer."
  • The Ghost: Until the end of Season 3, but even then we didn't get to see much of him.
  • Leitmotif: Fittingly enough, "The Wanderer," as sung by Dion. The Wanderer usually announces his presence by making a nearby radio play the song.
  • Wife Husbandry: According to Tamsin's confession in the fourth season Christmas episode, the Wanderer is determined to get the perfect wife, even if he has to father her himself...

Minor Characters

    The Ash I 

The Ash I

Portrayed by: Clé Bennett

  • Asshole Victim: The revelation that he ordered Lauren's girlfriend Nadia to be cursed, and then took Lauren as a slave while she tried to undo it, makes his coma seem a lot more justified.
    • AND that his last actions were literally ignoring danger and claiming he was going to bring down Trick. Seriously Too Dumb to Live.
  • Bald Black Leader Guy: Invoked. The first Ash is both black and a leader, although he has hair. Also notable is that the camera cuts always lead to making the viewer perceive him as larger, whether he happens to be standing on stairs while talking down at Bo or being in the center (and somewhat in front of the rest) of a Power Trio. In reality, he might actually be about as tall, or even shorter, than Bo.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Although he doesn't actually die, he is the first established character to get blown up and suffer life-threatening injuries that don't heal up immediately in the show.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the Season 1 finale. Even though it's never made explicitly clear, it's established that the Ash can no longer perform his duties (after being the Sole Survivor of a suicide bombing) and a new Ash is selected at the beginning of Season 2.
  • No Name Given: To the point that it's easy to forget that "Ash" is his title.

    The Ash II (Lachlan) 

The Ash II (Lachlan)

Portrayed by: Vincent Walsh

  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He's trying to stop the Garuda from killing everyone. He admits his horrible treatment of Lauren was to test Bo, and seems to genuinely regret it.

    The Morrigan 

The Morrigan/Evony Fleurette Marquise

Portrayed by: Emmanuelle Vaugier

  • Abusive Parents: She's Massimo's mother and apparently played a big part in why he's so screwed up.
  • Lady in Red: In most (if not all) of her appearances, she appears in a slinky red number with matching lipstick.
  • Meaningful Name: A title rather than a name, but the leader of the Dark Fae is given the title of "The Morrigan" which refers to the Celtic goddess of war and strife. It translates as "phantom queen" or "great queen."
  • The Muse: The Morrigan is a type of muse-Fae who feeds on driving artists she gets involved with insane.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Befriends Lauren, thinking that she had the upper hand in their relationship.

    Mayer 

Mayer

Portrayed by: Aron Tager

    Ryan Lambert 

Ryan Lambert

Portrayed by: Anthony Lemke

  • Heel-Face Revolving Door: GENERALLY on Bo's side until his final episode, but MAN can he be evil. Or, at least, irresponsible.
