    Blackagar Boltagon / Black Bolt 

Blackagar Boltagon / Black Bolt

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_black_bolt_7.png

Portrayed By: Anson Mount, Lofton Shaw (young)
Appearances: Inhumans

Kitang: According to our testing, Black Bolt's voice may very well be the most powerful and dangerous gift in all of Inhuman history, and I have every reason to believe that as you mature, your power will only grow stronger.
Rynda: But what does it mean?
Kitang: It means that your eldest son has the power to destroy all of Attilan, on purpose, or accidentally.

The king of the Inhumans.
  • Adaptational Wimp: The comic version of Black Bolt has flight, Super Strength (he can kick around somebody like Ben Grimm with ease), is Nigh Invulnerable and has energy projection powers. This version has none of those things.
  • Adapted Out: In the comics, he is a polygamist with five wives, here he's married to just Medusa. This is because said wives were Universal Inhumans - aliens that the Kree also experimented besides humanity - but since Agents of SHIELD established that the Inhuman experiment only worked on Earth, they don't exist in the MCU.
  • Aliens Speaking English: A notable aversion in regards to his sign language. While played straight in regards to the rest of the lunar Inhumans speaking American English, Black Bolt and Medusa employ their own self-created sign language instead of American Sign Language.
  • The Chains of Commanding: Black Bolt never wanted to be king, while Maximus was all for it, leaving open the possibility of Black Bolt ceding the throne to his brother. Then they underwent Terrigenesis, and their resulting powersets combined with Attilan's strict laws completely eliminated any chance of this, as Maximus only avoided the mines of the lowest caste due to being royalty. Black Bolt accidentally killing his parents shortly afterwards and being forced to ascend the throne did not help matters. The final kicker was the Genetic Council revealing to Black Bolt an impending threat to Attilan, which they believed only he had the power to defend them from.
  • Happily Married: To Medusa.
  • He Who Must Not Be Heard: Due to his destructive voice.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: How he justifies taking the throne to Maximus. The latter doesn't buy it.
  • Made of Iron: During his confrontation with Honolulu PD in the second episode, Black Bolt is straight-up beaten and tased and doesn't seem any worse for wear.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Can cause massive destruction with a whisper.
  • Marquee Alter Ego: He doesn't wear a mask most of the time, save for ceremonial purposes.
  • Minored In Ass Kicking: Since his primary offensive capability can be excessively destructive and thus should almost never be used, he has learned how to be an excellent physical fighter in close-quarters combat.
  • No Social Skills: Nope, not even a little. He sees nothing wrong with causing traffic accidents and just walking away, or outright shoplifting and breaking a few guards hands. Though it's justified, seeing how the Royal Family's spent their whole lives on Attilan and as royalty, logically wouldn't know how things work on Earth.
  • The Only One: The Genetic Council, upon learning the extent of his powers, believed that Black Bolt was the only person who could protect Attilan from an unspecified future threat, which is why he felt he had to be king despite not wanting to be.
  • Self-Made Orphan: A very tragic example, as when he first got his powers he didn't realize any speaking would create a devastating attack, and accidentally disintegrated both his parents.
  • Sibling Triangle: With Medusa and Maximus. He's won (so far anyway).
  • Sign Language: Communicates exclusively via a sign system (developed by his actor).
  • Silent Snarker: Particularly during his interactions with the Honolulu PD.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets one from Medusa for keeping his knowledge of Maximus's plan and Triton's survival from the others. They keep coming as the others learn that he has knowledge of some unspecified impending threat, which he refuses to fill them in on.

    Medusalith Amaquelin / Medusa 

Medusalith Amaquelin / Medusa

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_medusa_4.png
"You're talking about betraying your brother. You're talking about treason."
Portrayed By: Serinda Swan, V.I.P. (young)
Appearances: Inhumans

"I am the Queen of Attilan! No one tells me what to do!"

The queen of the Inhumans and wife of Black Bolt.
  • Action Girl: Even without her hair, she's still able to defeat Auran in a fight, and the latter only survived because of her Healing Factor.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the comics, Medusa's hair could lift multi-ton objects and strike hard enough to generate sonic booms. Here, it doesn't seem to be any stronger than the rest of her.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Having her hair cut off left her without access to her powers. However, she is more than capable of holding her own against Auran.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her parents' failure to rebel against the king and queen at the time led Medusa to believe that trying to change the status quo was futile.
  • Happily Married: To Black Bolt.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: On Earth, she repeatedly steals from civilians.
  • Morality Chain: Is hinted to be this to Black Bolt; for instance, she's willing to give Maximus a fair trial, while he would rather get revenge.
  • Not So Different: Maximus tries to invoke this with her, as after her haircut, Medusa's not above human level either.
  • Prehensile Hair: Her Inhuman power.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Inverted. In the comics, she and Black Bolt are distant cousins, but here, she refers to Gorgon as "My husband's cousin," implying they aren't related.
  • Sibling Triangle: With the Boltagon brothers. There are hints that she might have chosen Maximus over Blackagar had things turned differently (though presently, she loves Black Bolt).
  • Traumatic Haircut: Her hair is cut off by the bad guys. She later tells Black Bolt that it hurt when it happened, indicating that she may have some level of feeling in her hair that would make it all the more traumatic.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Tries to ditch Louise without so much as a thank you when the latter locates Black Bolt. Louise calls her on it.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: Her only goal is to find her family. To this end, she forces Lousie to follow a helicopter at gunpoint, then shoots a cop car to keep them from pursuing.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Medusa's hair is vulnerable to electricity. And after a close haircut, she's basically just a normal human.

    Karnak Mander-Azur 

Karnak Mander-Azur

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_karnak_3.png
"You should never have given me a choice."
Portrayed By: Ken Leung
Appearances: Inhumans

"None of it matters in the long run, eventually the universe will grow darker till black holes dominate the cosmos, everything, everyone you've ever known will be sucked into the vast nothingness. No one will be left to observe this, no one left to care."

Black Bolt's cousin and advisor, a strategist and philosopher.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the comics, Karnak never went Terrigenesis because his parents feared what he would turn into after what happened to his brother Triton, and instead he trained vigorously, with all his abilities products of being a Badass Normal (as much as this trope applies to an Inhuman - who in the comics are usually stronger and hardier than normal people even before Terrigenesis). Here, his abilities are implicitly the result of Terrigenesis note  and he displays Combat Clairvoyance as well.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He has the ability to mentally simulate and predict entire virtual scenarios of potential future events and actions, seeing and predicting the consequences and flaws of all actions within each scenario, and their probabilities of success and failure, described as "seeing the flaw in all things".
  • Broken Ace: After hitting his head on earth, his Awesomeness by Analysis powers are jacked up.
  • Brutal Honesty: Combined with No Social Skills, due to his power to literally see the flaws of everything around him, he is extremely blunt and outright tells people that nothing matters because of the inevitable death of the universe.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His Brutal Honesty often comes off as this.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: After arriving on Earth he suffers a head injury that disables his powers, the first indication of which is that he can't perfectly navigate to civilization and ends up going in circles.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Jen, a regular human woman in the fourth episode.
  • It's Personal: After Maximus's crew kills Gorgon, Karnak becomes obsessed with killing Maximus.
  • No Social Skills: During a dinner, he shows possible romantic interest in a serving girl, but bluntly pushes her away after detecting her weaknesses and flaws, while predicting they would spend their first night together, he also describes in extreme detail how their relationship would inevitably turn to annoyance then fall apart completely within days. Gorgon lampshades this by saying "[Karnak] is his own worst enemy".
  • Race Lift: Is white in the comics- or at least, appears white, bearing in mind his people are from the Himalayas- but played by the Chinese-American Ken Leung here.
  • Sherlock Scan: How his aforementioned Awesomeness by Analysis power is visualized.
  • The Smart Guy: His role as The Strategist combined with his Awesomeness by Analysis powers make him this within the Royal Family's Five-Man Band.
  • The Strategist: His role has been described as this.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Gorgon are clearly very close, in spite of his snarking at the latter. Gorgon's death seems to hit Karnak the hardest.

    Gorgon Petragon 

Gorgon Petragon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_gorgon_0.png

Portrayed By: Eme Ikwuakor
Appearances: Inhumans

Black Bolt's cousin and the leader of Attilan's military.
  • Back from the Dead: Karnak infuses him with Auran's DNA and puts him through a second Terrigenesis to bring him back to life. It works.
  • The Big Guy: He is the largest and most physically powerful member of the Royal Family. His Inhuman superpower with the hooved feet and Shockwave Stomp also fit perfectly for him to fill this role in the Five-Man Band.
  • Blood Knight: Would rather solve his problems by fighting than by talking.
  • Came Back Wrong: Being resurrected turned him into a deranged berserker, though he managed to calm down a bit thanks to Karnak. Still, he can barely keep his rage in check, and was willing to stay behind to die again on Attilan as he thought himself to be too dangerous. Karnak talks him out of it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: At times:
    Gorgon: (in response to Karnak's latest burst of Brutal Honesty) "This is why no one asks you to do a birthday toast."
  • Death by Adaptation: His comic counterpart is still alive. Subverted in the next episode, as Gorgon comes back.
  • Did Not Think This Through: Seems to be his main flaw. He destroys the Mondrover by stomping on it, giving scientists on Earth a (somewhat) clear shot of his hoof. And then on Earth, he tries to search for Triton by wading into the ocean, despite the fact that he can't swim and would have drowned if not for the intervention of a group of friendly surfers.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He uses his Shockwave Stomp to bring down the lab on himself and Mordis.
  • I Work Alone: Develops this mentality after one of the surfers is killed.
  • Race Lift: He's white in the comics, but in the show, he's played by black actor Eme Ikwuakor.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Triton's Blue. Always eager for a fight and not thinking about the consequences of his rash actions.
  • Shockwave Stomp: His superpower is stomping on the ground with his hooves and create shockwaves.
  • Super Drowning Skills: He can't swim at all, due to a combination of his leg shape and the fact that he grew up on the Moon with no bodies of water large enough to do so.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Walked right out into the ocean trying to find Triton, despite being completely unable to swim. The only reason he didn't die was because of a few nearby surfers who rescued him.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He carelessly destroys a Mondrover which causes the humans to find their location.

    Crystalia Amaquelin / Crystal 

Crystalia Amaquelin / Crystal

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_crystal_1.png

Portrayed By: Isabelle Cornish, Leila Bootsma (young)
Appearances: Inhumans

Medusa's sister, who is dedicated to the Royal Family.
  • Blow You Away: Can manipulate gusts of wind.
  • Category Traitor: How Maximus views her, as she supports the same Fantastic Caste System her parents died trying to fight.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: She can control earth.
  • Elemental Powers: Due to her Inhuman heritage, she has the ability to manipulate all four elements.
  • Entitled Bitch: Shows shades of this in "Make Way for...Medusa", where she's needlessly abrasive to Dave and Audrey after the former accidentally injures Lockjaw (due to him teleporting into the middle of the road) and the latter not being able to instantly fix him.
  • Fantastic Racism: She looks down on Maximus for being human.
  • Faux Action Girl: Despite having an impressive arsenal of powers at her disposal, she is quickly captured by Maximus and his minions using mundane methods such as Standard Female Grab Area and kept a prisoner inside her apartment.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: After her time on Earth, Crystal grows to envy normal humans just living their lives without powers.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Dave, a regular human, just like Karnak and Jen.
  • Making a Splash: She can control water. This includes water in solid manner too, when she uses her powers to freeze a ball, making her An Ice Person.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Once per Episode.
    • She had Lockjaw send the Royal Family down to Earth one-by-one at the beginning of the coup. This ended up separating them, and provided a power vacuum for Maximus to fill.
    • She demonstrated her powers for Auran as a distraction to get to her communicator. Medusa almost immediately realized that it was too easy and the line was being traced to her.
    • Her openly rejection of Maximus and escape was immediately spun into proof of his statements that the Royal Family had fled the responsibility of ruling.
  • Pet the Dog: Literally; she may be a Royal Brat, but cares deeply for Lockjaw. Notably, her worst moments are prompted by Lockjaw being injured.
  • Playing with Fire: She can control fire, manifested as a form of laser attack. The sixth episode shows that she can also create the more traditional fireballs.
  • Shock and Awe: She can create lightning with her powers, which she uses in the sixth episode to signal her location to Medusa and Black Bolt.
  • Undying Loyalty: To her family.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Promotional profiles describe her as a naïve figure.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Due to her youth and inexperience, she believes herself to be a Guile Heroine, when her spur of the moment deceptions are really just poorly thought out and predictable, to the point of making things worse for her family. Maximus actually seems embarrassed for her when she openly rejects his rule in front of the council and runs off to find Lockjaw.

    Triton 

Triton

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_triton_1.png
Portrayed By: Mike Moh
Appearances: Inhumans

Black Bolt's cousin with the ability to live underwater.
  • Demoted to Extra: Despite being one of the main Inhumans in the comics, he only appears in a handful of episodes. Mike Moh is also billed as a guest star rather than part of the main cast.
  • Disney Death: Is believed to have died in the first episode, but turns up alive and well in "Havoc in the Hidden Land".
  • Fish People: He is able to survive underwater.
  • Nerves of Steel: Is calm under pressure.
  • Never Found the Body: He disappears into the water after being shot, but given his powers, it's unknown whether he actually died. Sure enough, he's eventually revealed to be alive.
  • Race Lift: Is white in the comics (well, technically green), but played by Asian actor Mike Moh here.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Gorgon's Red.
  • The Spymaster: Seems to be this to the Royal Family, being a confidant in Black Bolt's secret plans (that even the Queen doesn't know about), and Triton is the one who slaughters Maximus' guards and captures him.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Gets shot in the first episode and jumps off a cliff. Subverted in "Havoc in the Hidden Land", where he turns up alive early in the episode.

Maximus's Faction

    Maximus Boltagon 

Maximus Boltagon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_maximus_6.png
"What I'm talking about is freedom. Freedom for all Inhumans."
Portrayed By: Iwan Rheon, Aidan Fiske (young)
Appearances: Inhumans

"Are we supposed to follow our king and remain as silent as he is?"

The brother of Black Bolt, with ambitions to take the throne himself.
  • Adaptational Heroism: He's more of an Anti-Villain than his comic self.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Unlike his comic book counterpart, who has psychic powers, Maximus lost any potential for powers when he underwent Terrigenesis.
  • All for Nothing: His goal to undergo Terrigenesis a second time ends up failing, with the only crystal held by Medusa for negotiating destroyed and himself stranded on the moon.
  • Anti-Villain: Stages a coup to take the throne of Attilan and tries to wipe out the Royal Family, but is doing so in an effort to dismantle Attilan's oppressive Fantastic Caste System and free the lower-caste Inhumans forced into a life of slavery. Though this depends on how much of what he says he actually believes and how much is just self-serving demagoguery.
  • Authority in Name Only: The only reason why Maximus has any political clout is that his brother Black Bolt is the king. Otherwise, he'd be a slave due to his lack of powers.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In a manner of speaking - the population of Attilan does go to live on Earth, and Black Bolt promises to change their society for the better, but Maximus won't be around to see it.
  • Badass Normal: He's the only normal, powerless human in a society of superpowered beings, and still managed to overthrow Black Bolt and take over Attilan.
  • Beard of Evil: Sports a short one along his jaw and serves as the Big Bad.
  • Big Bad: His coup is what kicks off the plot.
  • Blessed with Suck: His Inhuman power is... to be a normal human.
  • Brought Down to Normal: When he underwent Terrigenesis years ago when he came of age.
  • Didn't Think This Through: His failsafe of setting up Attilan's barrier to fail without his input every hour ends up dooming the city, as even the partial shutdowns it experiences when he's a little bit late end up causing irreparable damage. Even when the failsafe is disabled, the barrier collapses completely within the day.
  • The Evil Prince: Plans to take the throne from his brother.
  • False Flag Operation: He arranges for new Inhumans on Earth to be killed to aid his argument that the Royal Family needs to take over and help them.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: Black Bolt spares him, but traps him in an underground bunker on the now lifeless Attilan for the rest of his life.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: His Terrigenesis turning him into a mere human spurred quite a lot of resentment in him, as if it weren't for his royal blood, he would have been sent down to the mines like so many other low-powered Inhumans. This is especially in comparison to his brother, who is stated to maybe be the most powerful Inhuman ever. When he learns that Black Bolt's DNA may hold the key to allowing him to undergo a second Terrigenesis and maybe get some actual powers, it forces him to scrap his initial plan of killing Black Bolt, for the time being anyway.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He has no powers of his own, and relies on his ability to manipulate others to get the job done. It's ultimately revealed he wishes to undergo a second Terrigenesis which could potentially give him powers, thus ultimately averting this trope. It never ends up happening.
  • The Resenter: Resents Black Bolt for becoming king in spite of his initial reluctance. Even when they were boys, he had Black Bolt signed up for a potentially-lethal brain surgery in an attempt to drive him away from Attilan.
  • Sanity Slippage: Goes from wanting to abolish an oppressive Fantastic Caste System to being willing to blow up the dome of Attilan, potentially killing the entire population, all to keep Black Bolt from taking back the throne.
  • Settle for Sibling: His attempts to win over Crystal to his side after the coup just screams this.
  • Sibling Triangle: With his brother and sister-in-law. There are shades that he still longs for Medusa.
  • Stalker With a Crush: Creepily tells Medusa in the first episode that he's thought of them together.
  • Villain Has a Point: His desire to abolish Attilan's Fantastic Caste System is easy to get behind, both in and out of universe.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His plan is to abolish the Fantastic Caste System and bring their people new space to live on Earth.

    Auran 

Auran

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_auran.png
Portrayed By: Sonya Balmores
Appearances: Inhumans

The head of the Royal Guard.
  • Action Girl: As the head of the Royal Guard, it's to be expected of her.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: In the comics, Auran is a gold-skinned woman with large, bat-like ears that give her parabolic hearing. In the show, she looks like a normal human, and posses a Wolverine-like healing factor.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the comics, Auran is one of the royal family's allies. Here, she's Maximus's enforcer, and since the show has not taken the time to establish her motivations (yet) as it did for Maximus, she ends up coming off as far more evil than he is.
  • Afraid of Needles: Much to Karnak's surprise.
  • Cast From Life Span: Declan mentions that her use of her healing powers shortens her telomeres, indicating that there's a limit to how many times Auran can regenerate.
  • The Dragon: Becomes Maximus's main enforcer after The Coup.
  • Hates Being Touched: So much that she inflicts a Neck Snap on an unfortunate bus driver.
  • Healing Factor: Allows her to survive getting stabbed by Medusa in the second episode. As mentioned, it has been deconstructed.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Karnak manages to persuade her to ally with the royals.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Maximus.

    Bronaja 

Bronaja

Portrayed By: Ari Dalbert
Appearances: Inhumans

A young Inhuman from Attilan who undergoes Terrigenesis and gains the power of precognition.
  • Canon Foreigner: He has no direct counterpart in the comic books.
  • Expy: He is a precognitive Inhuman just like Ulysses from Civil War II, the obvious difference is that Bronaja is Atillan rather than from Earth.
  • Fainting Seer: Experiencing a vision gives him a seizure.
  • Made a Slave: He was sentenced to work in the mines just like all other Inhumans with lesser abilities.
  • Metaphorically True: As Bronaja gets a better handle on interpretating his visions, he also learns to start telling people what they want to hear, or to omit important details.
  • Prophecy Twist: His visions are initially hard to figure out, as they're steeped in visual metaphor rather than just being what will actually happen.

    Mordis 

Mordis

Portrayed By: Bridger Zadina
Appearences: Inhumans

A powerful Inhuman who can fire destructive energy beams from his eyes and is kept locked away for the safety of Attilan. Maximus recruits him to help Auran hunt the Royal Family in exchange for his freedom.


  • Beam Spam: Fires destructive energy beams from his eyes. Or, possibly his face, given that he has to wear a full mask.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Constantly quips in tense situations, such as telling Auran that keeping people safe isn't his strong suit when she orders him to protect one of their team.
  • The Dreaded: The thought of letting him roam free terrifies just about everyone. Even Maximus seems reluctant to let him out of his cell, and Black Bolt (the only Inhuman in Attilan more powerful than him) is noticeably unnerved to discover that Mordis is free.
  • Expy: Of Cyclops from the X-Men as both are characters who fire destructive beams of energy from their eyes which can't be controlled, resulting in the need to cover their face...Interestingly, Mordis shares his name with a minor X-Men character who is the younger half-sister of Dazzler and has the ability to fire blasts from her hands. He's also visually reminiscent of Xorn.
  • Foil: To Black Bolt. Both are immensely powerful Inhumans (it's outright stated that they are the two most powerful Inhumans in Attilan) whose abilities have the potential for widespread destruction. However, Black Bolt is allowed to wander freely and is capable of keeping his powers in check consciously. Mordis remains confined and suffers from Power Incontinence, forcing him to wear a special mask.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Auran dreads working with him, and even Maximus seems hesitant to let him out. He doesn't seem to like Auran much, either.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Maximus clearly considers him this.
  • I Die Free: When Gorgon and Karnak capture him, Mordis refuses to be reimprisoned in Attilan, attempting to take off his mask and bring down the building they're in. Gorgon manages to stop him via Shockwave Stomp, but it has the same effect, killing both Mordis and Gorgon.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The second most powerful Inhuman in Attilan next to Black Bolt.
  • Power Incontinence: He can't control the destructive energy his body generates and needs to wear a special suit and mask to hold it in check.
  • The Resenter: In the sixth episode, Mordis talks briefly about his anger at being locked up while the equally powerful Black Bolt was permitted to walk freely.
  • Tragic Villain: Spent his entire life locked in a cell after his powers developed, while seeing the equally potentially destructive crown prince be spared that treatment, and serves Maximus because the latter was willing to let him be free.

    Locus 

Locus

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inhumanslocus.png
Portrayed By: Sumire Matsubara
Appearences: Inhumans

One of Auran's allies in the search for the royals.
  • Boxed Crook: Black Bolt and Medusa kidnap her at the end of "Make Way for...Medusa!" to use her talents to find their cousins.
  • Canon Foreigner: Although two characters exist in the comics with the name Locus, this one has nothing to do with either of them
  • Decomposite Character: Her ability to track people by using sound is actually similar to the comic version of Auran, who can find people by listening for specific words.
  • Everything Sensor: Her Inhuman power is echolocation.
  • Last Request: As she is dying from her gunshot wound, she pleads with Maximus to abolish the caste system and be the just king the Inhumans deserve.
  • Take a Moment to Catch Your Death: Caught a fatal bullet when the group took down the drug dealers pursuing Karnak, but no one, not even her, seemed to notice until she collapsed minutes later.
  • Villain Has a Point: After being captured by Medusa and Black Bolt, she correctly points out how unfair it is that her entire life had to be defined by her powers because of Attilan's rigid caste system.

    Pulsus 

Pulsus

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inhumanspulsus.jpg
Portrayed By: Jason Quinn

Sakas

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inhumanssakas.png
Portrayed By: Matt Perfetuo
Appearences: Inhumans

One of Auran's allies in the search for the royals.
  • Canon Foreigner: Has no apparent comics counterpart.
  • Hero Killer: He kills one of the surfers working with Gorgon.
  • Killed Off for Real: Gets killed in the explosion at the end of the 4th episode. His body is seen in the next episode, where Dr. Declan performs an autopsy on him.
  • Super Spit: Can spray acid due to special glands in his cheeks.

    Flora

Other Allies

    Lockjaw 

Lockjaw

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_lockjaw_1.png
Appearances: Inhumans

The pet companion and "family dog" of the Royal Family.
  • Big, Friendly Dog: He may be the size of a bear, but he still acts like a dog.
  • Dogs Are Dumb: Despite orders to keep the Royal Family together, Lockjaw winds up teleporting them all over Hawaii. Crystal explains this as him getting sloppy due to exhaustion.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Black Bolt is literally a word away from ending Maximus's coup... and then Lockjaw teleports him away.
  • Team Pet: Aside from being the size of a bear and having Inhuman powers, he looks and acts just like an Earth bulldog and is treated like one by the other characters.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Lockjaw has teleportation powers, though using them too many times in quick succession and over greater distances (like going from the Moon to Earth and back multiple times) wears him out and causes him to get inaccurate with the locations he teleports to (which is how the Royal Family members end up separated from each other when fleeing from Maximus's initial coup).

    Louise Fisher 

Louise Fisher

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mcu_louise.png
Portrayed By: Ellen Woglom
Appearances: Inhumans

A (human) scientist who meets the Royals.
  • Audience Surrogate: She serves this purpose in the main cast.
  • Canon Foreigner: Louise doesn't exist in the comics.
  • I Want My Jet Pack: Louise's motivation. She actually carries her father's ashes in a necklace shaped like an Apollo rocket.
    He spent his entire life wanting to go to the Moon, and NASA, they didn't know if they were gonna pick pilots or scientists. But guess what? They picked pilots. And my father, the scientist, he never got to go.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: She's a scientist, and wears glasses to signify it.
  • Token Human: Of the main cast.

    Evan Declan 

Doctor Evan Declan

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_evan_declan_tm_big.jpg
Portrayed By: Henry Ian Cusick
Appearances: Inhumans

A geneticist specialised in Inhumans.
  • Distressed Dude: Got taken as a hostage by both Auran and then later the Royal Family.
  • For Science!: Has no ill intentions and does all of his research for genetic studies.
  • Killed Off for Real: A mindless Gorgon kills the poor guy accidentally when he happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Maximus supported his research without telling him who or what he really was.

    Eldrac the Door 

Eldrac

Portrayed By: Moses Goods
Appearences: Inhumans

A Inhuman that was turned into a living portal and serves as an alternate way of transportation besides Lockjaw.
  • Body Horror: It speaks volumes how drastic his Terrigenesis transformation was that a humanoid being become a living door. The process of "opening" the door is also very painful for him, and staying open to allow many people to pass is effectively torture.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: As Eldrac was physically part of Attilan, he had no hope of evacuating the city himself, but still spent his final moments evacuating the entire population of the city, which must have caused him no end of agony.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: He is able to teleport individuals to Earth.
  • Troll: When Auran forces him to teleport her to Earth on pain of threatening him and his family, he abides to that... By transporting her in a location where her feet are trapped in stone.

    Duodon 

Duodon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inhumansduodon.png
Portrayed By: Steve Trzaska
Appearences: Inhumans

An ally of the Royal Family.
  • Blind Seer: He can project visions of things that have happened, but is blind, as the structure of his eyes does not allow him to see.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The footage he shows of Triton's apparent death spurs Maximus to carry out his coup.
