Characters: Our Little Adventure
Here is a list of characters from Our Little Adventure.

    open/close all folders 

Julie's Group

    Julie Magilligan 
Julie Magilligan

"The power of friendship cures light wounds!"

Julie is the protagonist of the story. The story begins with Julie working as a waitress for a bar in Huckleton called "The Wayside". Then one night, she gets a prophetic dream from a powerful shrouded figure she affectionately calls "The Palm Tree Ghost". The figure explains to her that she will save the world by getting the pendant and collecting the broken magicant pieces. How she will save the world with them will probably have to do with battling the Souballo Empire and using the Magicant's power to fix other problems.

    Angelika Magilligan 
Angelika Magilligan

"I just USE the spells. I don't know anything about them!"

Angelika is Julie's fifteen-year-old sister. She bumps into Julie right after Julie quits her job at the bar and decides to join up with the quest. Angelika doesn't seem to care too much about Julie's mission and is only in it for the gold and to help keep her big sister safe. Angelika is very different from her sister, in both personality and the skills she uses.

    Norveg 
Outsmarted by a rodent.
Norveg

"You'll never get very far if you behave like a simpleton and never listen to reason."

Norveg is Angelika's new rat familiar. Despite numerous references, no-one will tell him what happened to her previous familiar. The rat and the blonde girl met in huckleton and have decided to travel together since then.

    Lenny Magilligan 
Lenny Magilligan

"It figures some random bad guy knows more about this quest than we do..."

Lenny is Julie's husband, and for those who don't know, he took her last name. He has been dragged into the adventure by his idealistic but silly wife, but he doesn't mind too much. He originally worked as a mercenary and as job from his guild and he met Julie by guarding her carriage. The two fell in love and eventually wed, though details on their story are still fuzzy. In the group, he is a fighter and is the group's meat shield and skullbasher now.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Much darker-skinned humans than Lenny have been seen. Medlii the harpy commented on his caramel appearance when she fought the group. Lenny even got angry with her when he heard her singing a Confederate anthem.
  • Badass Normal: He's got no magic powers, only kickass fighting skills.
  • Bald Black Leader Guy: Subverted. His wife is the leader of this group.
  • Big Fancy Sword: His weapon of choice is a Bastard Sword.
  • Bi the Way: There are more and more hints of it as the story goes on.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Subverted. He's actually quite calm and laid back, to the point of being a bit passive.
  • Character Development: Since Pauline's death, Lenny's been in the spotlight a bit more and has not only had more jokes to deliver, but has had some chance to grow a bit ballsier.
  • Chekhov's Skill: More than once he's shown off his knowledge of rocks and minerals.
  • Closer to Earth: Usually quite rational and sensible compared to his idealistic wife.
  • Gentle Giant: The strongest member of the group physically, but very laid back and gentle when not battling enemies.
  • Happily Married: To Julie, the group's bard and leader.
  • Henpecked Husband: He frequently bows to Julie's wishes.
  • Nice Guy: He's laid back, soft and unassuming.
  • Satellite Character: For Julie in Book 1. He develops more during Book 2.
  • Straight Man: Has few jokes himself, but often sets up other group member's funny moments.
  • True Neutralinvoked: In book 1. Word of God stated he has become Neutral Good as of getting to Level 7.

    Rocky Jones 
Rocky Jones

"I'm gonna sell the swag. Don't worry, I won't steal ALL of it..."

Rocky's a sullen, unpleasant red haired teenage boy. He is also the group's rogue, specializing in picking the locks, disarming the traps, and shanking dumbass opponents from behind. Originally he worked for his father's flower shop, but got into trouble with the law over his flower selling techniques. While on the road somewhere along the line he met Angelika. The two decided to work together conning people out of their money and shiny possessions. While on their travels they met Julie and Lenny right outside of The Wayside, and now the four work together. Rocky may or may not regret this decision.

  • Anti-Hero: Rocky's not above using indecent tactics to achieve a decent goal.
  • Back Stab: Rocky's sneak attacks can be pretty damaging.
  • Badass Normal: No magic powers, just underhanded (but effective) fighting skills.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Rocky is a rogue after all. He uses all sorts of "dirty tactics" when fighting.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Ever since getting his magical handysack, he seems to like stuffing it full of inexpensive but useful items.
  • Crush Blush: Emily produces this in him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Competes with Angelika for the title.
  • Hollywood Nerd: If he was drawn more realistically, he'd probably look like this. Here's a picture, judge for yourself.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's not as bad as Angelika, in fact Rocky's not such a bad guy once you get to know him.
  • Knife Nut: Though he actually wields a shortsword. He does use throwing daggers for some of his sneak attacks.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Rocky hardly ever smiles, and when he does it's usually a smirk of some kind.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His father owns a flower store and Rocky did help with it, including making flower arrangements.
  • Red-Headed Stepchild: Though he isn't a stepchild, he does catch some flak over his red hair, especially from Angelika.
  • Sour Supporter: He's cranky yes, but he usually gives Julie and the group his best.
  • The Smart Guy: Since Lenny's moved into Lancer territory in the group.
  • True Neutralinvoked: Also the least fettered of the group, though Emily's also pretty unfettered.

    Pauline Mikado 
Pauline Mikado

"Less talky more stabby, guys!"

Pauline is a barbarian, a melee fighter that relies on rage, passion and two-handed weapons to win battles. The group met her in a small town on their way from Huckleton to Everwood, after defeating her underlings in a bar fight. They also defeated her in combat the next day and she decided to join them on their quest. Pauline may be a girl but she's practically one of the guys and has some pretty nasty hygiene problems to boot.

    Emily Wellis 
Emily Wellis

"Fortunately I learned how to make magic arms and armor that DON'T scream obscenities at their wielders."

Emily is a pleasant (appearing) but reserved wizard who has joined the group when they were in Llanadario. Emily was a magic student from Everwood, but is now on the road to learn about magic and document various different types of fungus.

  • Artificial Human: It has been implied that she was originally part of a project by Angelo to artificially mass produce an army of Super Soldiers, each bonded with a Puppeteer Parasite.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Surprisingly racist against Elves, and can be downright sullen and snarky when she wants to be.
  • Brainy Brunette: Played straight. As her character sheet will tell, she has the highest INT score and she's helped the group with some decent combat tactics in some of the enemy encounter they've had.
  • Cute Witch: She's pretty attractive and is seen cleaned up nicely during her and Rocky's date. Part of her low-ish charisma comes from being somewhat reserved.
  • Earlybird Cameo: Introduced 200 pages earlier in the comic, way back when Julie's group was in Everwood.
  • Evil All Along: Seemingly. Though she turns out to have actually been a Meat Puppet.
  • Fantastic Racism: Not to the same extent as the Souballo Empire, but she doesn't think very highly of Elves, referring to them as tree-dwelling baboons.
  • Foil: For Angelika, but Emily's shown not to want to participate in that.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Angelika hates her because she's jealous of her relationship with Rocky, Julie doesn't trust her because she caught Emily spying on her, and thanks to her low charisma, Emily never really bonds with Lennie or Jordie. The only member of the party to really like her is Rocky. As a result, most of them get over her apparent betrayal and death pretty quickly.
  • Hollywood Nerd: She looks pretty fine in her Everwood Magic School uniform.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Specifically referred to as one after the parasite inside of her takes full control and reveals its own form.
  • An Ice Person: She states that she really likes ice spells while freezing four Kobolds to death.
  • Item Crafting: Emily has the ability to enchant weapons and armor.
  • Killed Off for Real: She gets killed off by a Puppeteer Parasite and the parasite gets killed by one of the magicant's guardians. Seeing little difference between her and the treacherous parasite, Julie's party doesn't bother making any effort to raise her.
  • Meat Puppet: Turns out she was infected and controlled by some manner of Puppeteer Parasite loyal to one member of the Big Bad Duumvirate. She gets killed when it takes full control.
  • Mega Nekko: She has much of the trope's personality traits. Glasses are also fairly rare in this world, making her stand out.
  • Nerd Glasses: She is a nerdy witch, and has glasses.
  • Noodle Incident: She would not go into detail about why the school sent her on this strange fungus mission.
  • The Quiet One: She's had a few jokes, but she's even quieter than Lenny in this regard.
  • Real Dreams Are Weirder: She contrasts hers to Jordie's Talking in Your Dreams.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Invoked sometimes when attacking something with magic or when she's about to do something questionable.
  • Shrinking Violet: Subverted. The group's first impression was this, but Emily's reveals herself merely to be mild-mannered and somewhat aloof.
  • Sixth Ranger: Technically the fifth, due to the original fifth member being killed.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Courtesy of a Puppeteer Parasite.
  • Squishy Wizard: Emily is a wizard and has less constition than Angelika.
  • The Stoic: Emily isn't very emotional, and seems much less fettered than other group members.
  • Transformation Of The Possessed: When the parasite inside of her takes full control and kills her, her body is warped into a Humanoid Abomination.
  • Wizarding School: Emily was training at the Everwood Magical University.

    Jordie Kent 
Loves giving hugs.
Jordie Kent

"I'm supposed to go with you on your journey!"

Jordie Kent is a Cleric who found Julie via divination magic. Apparently it is destiny that bound him to her, though Julie and the others seem a bit skeptical about it. Julie met him in Autumnson while she was at a temple gathering info on an Erinyes that attacked her. It was originally after Jordie, apparently.

Umbria and sidekicks

    Umbria/Zaedalkaah 
You can trust her.
Umbria/Zaedalkaah

"I'm as innocent as a child with a fresh, delicious heart."

Umbria/Zaedalkaah is a secondary antagonist in the comic. She has had quite a bit of screen time, and has had many adventures on her quest to get her old body (and character classes?) back. Her quest is basically the B Plot of the entire comic.

  • Back from the Dead: Zaedalkaah's rebirth took the form of whatever revived him. Since it was Julie's form, he may also qualify as a Gender Bender.
  • Badass Teacher: When conventionally teaching her non-bard orchestra wasn't working so well, she opted to take them to Mr. Moriatos' practice dungeon for real combat/dungeon experience. She has helped twelve of her students gain their first bard level so far.
  • Beta Test Baddie: Umbria was initially on a quest to regain her power and her true form, which this female bardic form isn't. Her former employers however, refuse to take her back due to her weakened state. She ultimately ends up stuck in the Souballo Empire, albeit with a high ranking position, and seems to have dropped this for now, though she is still trying to increase her influence.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She's evil and knows it.
  • Combat Pragmatist: This combined with luck is how she's survived so long on her own.
  • Consummate Liar: Subverted somewhat. She thinks she's a great liar, but her lying isn't that great, and Jason and Trevoricus caught on and eventually kicked her out of the group.
  • Cool Teacher: Many of her students seem to think this... when she's not being really mean to them.
  • Dark Action Girl: Quite excellent in combat, and evil.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Definitely has her moments, and finding out Angelo's Kids is part of The Empire was probably the best one.
  • De-power: Zaedalkaah's reincarnation required her to take Julie's class and levels, making her a Level 3 bard in the beginning. We see that her previous incarnation was stronger than this, to the point of being a famous assassin in the Brotherhood. The guild no longer wants her now that she's weak, so her main goal is to reclaim her lost power.
  • Evil Twin: To Julie.
  • Eye Scream: She seems to like stabbing people in the eye with her Rapier.
  • Fanservice Pack: Inverted just like with Angelika and Julie. Umbria gets a costume change starting from comic #350 onward which no longer shows off her legs.
  • Gender Bender: Umbria was originally a male, fiend touched being named Zaedalkaah, but was forced to reincarnate as an Evil Twin of the person who released him from his prison, Julie. She initially tries to recover her old body and class by requesting the help of the organization she once belonged to, but ends up thwarted and sidetracked. She takes her present form in stride, and finds Julie's good looks useful for manipulating people. For the time being at least, she has more or less settled for remaining this way.
  • Gilded Cage: She was taken to Souballo HQ and, though in luxury, was forced to produce an anthem for the Souballo Empire.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: Umbria's character design is an "evil palette swap" of Julie's design. She lampshades this when talking to two evangelists of Angelo's Kids.
  • It's All About Me: Umbria is extremely conceited and self-centered, using people around her at any opportunity to get ahead.
  • Jerkass: During her travels with Trevoricus and Jason, she treats them like crap. When she gets voluntered to create the Souballo Empire's anthem, she treats her assigned orchestra like crap.
  • Magic Music: A much darker reprise to Julie's powers.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She has used Jason's (and Trevoricus' to a lesser extent) attraction to her as well as their greed to get them to do whatever she wants. They wised up and tossed her out of the group.
  • Musical Assassin: Though in her past life, he was more traditional.
  • Neutral Evilinvoked: Doesn't have any bias for or against law, but is clearly evil.
  • Non-Lethal K.O.: Thanks to a bungled move silently check, the Scroll Shop Wizard heard Zaedalkaah coming and promptly foiled the assassination by petrifying him.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Likes doing these a lot.
  • Putting on the Reich: Starting with comic #350 she seems to have embraced the dress code of The Empire.
  • Quirky Bard: Albeit evil...
  • Royal Rapier: Her weapon of choice.
  • Sealed Evil in a Wand: Until Julie accidentally released it.
  • Smug Snake: Anyone not more powerful than her she tends to treat like crap... and she's even snuck a few snide remarks at the more powerful people around her. She's shown to be very conceited and overconfident, even though most of her successes were due to dumb luck.
  • Terrible Trio: With Trevoricus and Jason, until they kicked her out. But then Angelo forces them, along with Jane, to work together again for his own amusement.
  • The Unfettered: Umbria seems to be willing to do whatever it takes to reclaim her old power. She manipulates and lies to people, kills them, and has joined Angelo's Kids not because she believes in their dogma but because she believes it's a decent way to achieve her goals.

    Jason Moriatos 
Not too bright...
Jason Moriatos

"Now that I think about it, a 3 vs 5 fight wasn't too smart anyway."

Jason is a barbarian who was part of a three-person team of bandits who attacked Julie's group. They lost, and Jane was killed (though not by Julie's group). Umbria watched over them and joined the group. Jason seems to be attracted to Umbria and is fairly easily bent to her will.

    Trevoricus 
Trevoricus

"Confuse a little human girl for a halfling ONCE and they never let it go!"

Trevoricus is another part of Jane's team, before it was hijacked by Umbria. Trevoricus is a gnome wizard who is unliked by the law due to some unfortunate mistakes and indescretions he had with a young female human child. He is also the brains of the group, though he too passively follows Umbria's selfish and crazy schemes.

    Jane 
Jane

"You can't fight us with all that crap on your back!"

Jane was the former leader of a small adventuring group that waylaid Julie's group. They tried to bluff Julie that some treasure Julie's group found earlier was theirs. The bluff failed and they fought Julie's group for the swag instead, but that also failed. Julie's group spared the trio, but Jane was killed by Umbria/Zaedalkaah while Jason and Trevoricus were unconcious in order to usurp Jane's position in the group. However, recently she has come back as a ghost and appeared before Trevoricus. The two work together to defeat Umbria and kick her out of the group, so Jane can take her spot as leader back.

Souballo Empire

    Brian Souballo 
Brian Souballo

"I'll go, but instead I will polymorph myself into HER instead! What a twist THAT would be!"

Brian is the emperor of the Souballo Empire, and is married to Angelo. He was outside relaxing on a balcony of his castle when he saw a giant beacon of light that Julie released when she activated her pendant for the first time. Judging from his reaction he knows about the Magicant and probably the pendant keeper as well, and has informed his followers to find her.

  • Affably Evil: Is quite a bit more good-natured than his husband.
  • The Archmage: He causually uses the Shapechange spell, which is a level 9 spell in Dungeons & Dragons. In the ruin Stratus story arc, he uses a Quickened Disintegrate spell, which is considered epic magic.
  • Beard of Evil: Brian is one of the two main antagonists of the story and he has a goatee.
  • Benevolent Boss: He seems to care about his underlings more than the usual evil overlord, and is also fixated on professionality.
  • Better Living Through Evil: One of his plans is rounding up "choice people" to work for the empire. Brian attempts to invoke this trope on his old magic teacher Mr. Stratus, but fails.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's been hard to take seriously as a villain in the past, but the "ruin Thomas Stratus" arc shows him to be intelligent and not afraid to kill dozens of people with his magic.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Angelo.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He may have chastised Angelo for destroying an underling, but we learn that declining Brian's offers to join him result in lightning to the face.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: shows signs of this.
  • Depraved Homosexual: Averted. The fact that he and Angelo are gay have absolutely nothing to do with their evilness.
  • Emperor Scientist: Created a Magitek system of transforming/transferring Cosmic Lifestrand into clones created in laboratories.
  • Evil Overlord: He is one of the two emperors of the Souballo Empire.
  • Fantastic Racism: He and Angelo don't like Dwarves and make fun of them, but are mortified when a dwarf within earshot catches them doing it.
  • Large Ham: He certainly enjoys playing the part of the Evil Overlord.
  • Lawful Evilinvoked: His willingness to do unethical things such as kill and destroy are apparent, but runs his Empire with fairness and organization.
  • Pride: Eagerly shows off his castle with two hour tours.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: Brian sure isn't a very scary name for an evil emperor.
  • Unholy Matrimony: He is married to Angelo.
  • Villains Out Shopping: The first thing we see him doing is enjoying a hot chocolate while wearing his "imperial pajamas".
  • Yaoi Guys: With Angelo.

    Angelo Souballo 
Angelo Souballo

"If someone around here could make a decent drink, I wouldn't have to kill so many employees..."

Angelo is the leader of "Angelo's Kids", a pseudo-religion of young adventurers who do his bidding and quest in his name. It is revealed that he works with Brian's Souballo Empire and is married to the emperor himself, making Angelo the "co-emperor". Angelo is more of a traditional evil overlord than his husband and isn't afraid to assert this fact.

  • Ambidextrous Sprite: One of the most obvious examples in the comic.
  • Bad Boss: What with the underling annihilation and all.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Brian.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Much moreso than his husband, Brian. Angelo can turn the sweetness on and off like a light switch.
  • The Archmage: Destruction's a level 7 cleric spell in D&D, but empowering it increases it to level 9. This guy's got power.
  • Cruel Mercy: Angelo prevented Eva's suicide, only because he had something more interesting in store for her. It seems to have to do with the framing of Thomas Stratus.
  • Dark Messiah: His followers certainly believe he is a messiah figure.
  • Demon Head: Angelo does one to Janice.
  • Depraved Homosexual: Actually averted. The fact that he and Brian are gay have absolutely nothing to do with their evilness.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Totally annihilated an underling because she criticized Brian's meeting plan.
  • Evil Overlord: One of the two emperors of the Souballo Empire.
  • Evil Red Head: Angelo has "strawberry blonde" hair, and is quite evil.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Is shown to use high-level arcane magic.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: His outfit has one boot longer than the other, one black glove with jewels on it, and one long sleeve and one short sleeve with his tunic.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Angelo's moments where he seems decent are mainly due to Brian suggesting him to be.
  • Het is Ew: He's downright disgusted when Eva suggests that he might try to sexually assault her.
  • Holy Halo: Subverted as Angelo's a pretty bad egg.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: Seemingly not played for laughs like with Peganone. Angelo's outfit is pretty out there.
  • It's All About Me: Angelo may be one of the most conceited and distainful creatures in this story. He cares less about his underlings than his husband, Brian.
  • Kick the Dog: Most of his dealings with Eva.
  • Lawful Evilinvoked: We may be stretching the lawful a bit, but he too shows organization and fairly careful planning.
  • Light Is Not Good: Angelo is a cleric who wears mostly white, but seems totally insane.
  • The Magnificent: His followers call him "Our Beautiful Worship".
  • Manipulative Bastard: And when his words fail, he'll use magic to make you see it his way.
  • Path of Inspiration: The religion he created.
  • The Red Mage: Angelo is stated to be a "Mystic Theurge", a D&D Prestige Class allowing the simultaneous advance of both Cleric spells and (in Angelo's case) Sorcerer spells. This usually leads to a Master of None situation, but Angelo seems to have overcome that through sheer experience and high levels.
  • Smug Super: Angelo is an epic spell-caster and is worshipped by his followers, but is quite smug.
  • Yaoi Guys: With Brian.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: He collects people's souls in gems, a habit even his partner finds a little creepy. One of his own allies fears that he will devour her's if she becomes too powerful.

    Bruce Moriatos 
Bruce Moriatos

"As per your request, sir."

Bruce Moriatos seems to be in charge of soldier training in the Empire when it comes to physical training.

    Sophia Moriatos 
Sophia Moriatos

"I also have a 347 page progress report for you to read if you desire."

Sophia Moriatos is Bruce's daughter, and in charge of the magical part of soldier training in the empire. She's a cheery go-getter, and a powerful sorceress in her own right.

    Janice Jamison 
Janice Jamison

"Mind your own business, you little rodent!"

Janice is the head of magical research in the empire. She is also tasked with being the military tactician and is researching on finding Julie. Her efforts have been unsuccessful so far.

    Master Exillon 
Master Exillon

"BEEP."

Exillon is some kind of glowing robotic crystal, and the token non-human part of this villain ensemble. Exillon's an outside agent that's working in secret with the empire in exchange for some kind of reward. The only person who can understand what it says is Brian.

    Soldiers of the Souballo Empire 
Soldiers of the Souballo Empire

"Certain filthy Elves are gonna get what's coming to them in time."

The Souballo Empire seems to be the main antagonist force in the comic. It is led by Brian Souballo and Angelo Souballo, and its agenda includes making Manjulias a better place to live for humans, and anyone who allies with them. This would be all well and good if it weren't for its tyranical tendencies and hostile approach. This section will cover tropes of the Souballo Empire as a whole and various minor members of the Souballo Empire have invoked.

    Angelo's Kids 
Angelo's Kids

"Defying our Beautiful Worship is a capital offense. Even those who aren't under the light of his halo know that."

Angelo's Kids is a cult composed of young adventurer fanatics who idolize Angelo Souballo as a holy man, due to his powerful divine and arcane magic. They preach his dogma and enforce his will, which often means destruction of any who won't submit to the "light of his halo". It's been revealed in the comic that Angelo's Kids is a faction of the Souballo Empire, but not all of Angelo's flock are aware of this. Even without official affiliation, the two organizations often work together due to having similar ideals. Angelo's kids are often more extreme in their methods than the Empire, and it's likely the Angelo's kids are used to perform certain things the Empire publicly won't.

  • All Crimes Are Equal: In regards to defying Angelo, as quoted above.
  • Burn the Witch!: Often do this with heretics and other undesirables.
  • Cosplay: In universe, with Angelo Souballo.
  • Cute and Psycho: Many of them look very good, and are very cheerful as well as nuts.
  • Fantastic Racism: A little less so than the Souballo Empire.
  • Fantasy Character Classes: Much like the Souballo Empire, including the lack of Bards.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: The AK uniforms mimic Angelo's taste in attire, with one gloved hand, and one boot longer than another.
  • Flanderization: In universe. Many of them emulate Angelo's mannerisms and flamboyance. Some of them even use a Noblewoman's Laugh, despite Angelo himself never laughing like that once in the comic so far.
  • Light Is Not Good: Some of the Angelo's Kids are Clerics (Angelo himself uses powerful divine magic) and channel positive energy.
  • Obliviously Evil: Some may be aware that what they're doing is horrible, while others may just be thoughtlessly following orders.
  • Path of Inspiration: They all follow the dogma of Angelo in a very hardcore manner.
  • Stepford Smiler: With the nasty things they often have to do, it's hard to imagine them otherwise.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Much like the Souballo Empire.
  • We Are Everywhere: Perhaps even moreso than the Souballo Empire.

Other Characters

    Thomas Stratus 
Thomas Stratus

" My apologies. I tend to zone out sometimes when dealing with really stupid people."

Up until the second book, this wizard didn't have an official name in the comic, but he has crossed paths with Julie's gang more than once. He runs a scroll shop in Everwood, which was where the group met him. They met him again in Huckleton when they were buying ferry tickets to cross the ocean. Originally he seemed to be an unimportant character, but the second book's has him established as a fair bit higher up on importance.

  • All-Powerful Bystander: The old timer is very powerful, but doesn't have much to do with Julie's group.
  • Ascended Extra: While he was nothing more than a recurring character in the first book, he's arguably the main character of the B plot in the second book.
  • Badass Grandpa: He reveals that he's higher-levelled than Rocky and Angelika combined, and that he's a great-grandfather.
  • Brick Joke: After 300 pages, he finally wears his casual outfit.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Deadpan Snarker: Many of his lines are pretty decent.
  • He Knows Too Much: He learned about the Souballo's invasion plan, so the Emperor refines a plan to ruin Stratus' name in the city of invasion by commiting horrible crimes, disguised as Stratus.
  • Insufferable Genius
  • Old Master: He is a high-level wizard, and has been revealed to be one of Brian Souballo's teachers.
  • Recurring Character: He is one of the few non-player characters that Julie's group has dealt with more than once, and probably later on as well.
  • Retired Badass: He used to be a (presumably) magic teacher for The Emperor before making/selling magic scrolls in Everwood.
  • Squishy Wizard
  • Taken for Granite: Does this to Zaedalkaah as punishment for Zaedalkaah's failed assassination attempt.
  • True Neutralinvoked: His personality seems to be this. It's also hinted at when Brian extends the empire membership offer to him as someone "who would be cool...ish with the idea, alignment-wise." Even when Stratus delivers his You're Insane! speech to the emperor, Stratus seems to just phone it in somewhat.
  • Unequal Rites: He holds the traditional wizard's opinion that Sorcerers are inferior to Wizards.
  • You're Insane!: Stratus does a half-hearted, snarky one of these to the Emperor before the Emperor attacks him.

    Eric Patterson 
Eric Patterson

"Could you please, please, PLEASE un-quit and come back?"

Patterson is Julie's former boss when she was working at The Wayside. He's a fairly understanding person, but he does seem not to have that many scruples and is less lawful than one would expect or hope. He eventually gets kidnapped by Brian due to his good barkeeping abilities... and because Angelo wanted a "Huckleton Heartthrob".

    Peganone Silkweed 
Peganone Silkweed

"We're not judgin'... at least in the 'non chosen one' sense."

Peganone is an elven woman, and a member of the Everwood Council. She is also one of the three judges in Everwood Idol. She is a wizard who seems to be specialized in Divination magic. She is the most cheerful of the three.

    Simonicus 
Simonicus

"Your distressingly low level is all the more reason to keep quiet about your mission."

Simonicus is probably the leader of the Everwood Council, or it may be a triumverate thing. He is the most serious of the three, and is one of the judges in Everwood Idol. He is another wizard, though we haven't seen him do any wizardly things in the comic yet.

    Randi Goldenaxe 
Randi Goldenaxe

"Call me crazy, but it might be a bit of a step backwards in the world savin', girl."

Randi is the third member of the Everwood Council. Unlike Simonicus and Peganone, Randi isn't a Wizard, but a Cleric with a level of Fighter. Randi is also the third judge in Everwood Idol. Randi told Julie that he would be checking in on her every so often, but we haven't seen him do that yet.

    Merla Undercobble 
Merla Undercobble

"What's the point in giving a PsiCrystal an interesting name if it never comes when you call it?"

In Llanadario, Merla was the one who psionically called out to Julie so they could talk. Merla turned out to be a member of the Everwood Council's network, helping Julie on her quest.

  • Characters as Device: The whole tower scene seemed more to do with talking about Julie and Angelika's past than revealing present information. Randi even mutters complaints about this.
  • Cutesy Dwarf: Though she doesn't have dwarven features. She looks like an adult human, shrunken down.
  • Fairy Companion: Merla has a PsiCrystal named "Crystal" but this trope is subverted. Crystal is snarky and rarely helps her.
  • Friends with Benefits: With Randi, it seems.
  • Hobbits: Not called that in the webcomic for obvious reasons, but Merla's the first important Halfling character in the story.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Merla has several pet cats, who all love pesturing Norveg and Angelika.
  • Older than They Look: Looked pretty much the same age almost 20 years ago when working with Theodore and Rosa Magilligan.
  • Psychic Powers: Merla is a powerful psionic.
  • Teleporter Accident: When attempting to teleport psionically to Everwood, she slams into one of her cats. The way she looks [[videoGame/EarthBound when she does it]] might be familiar to some.
  • Voice of the Legion: When Merla speaks telepathically to someone, the voice heard in the mind is monsterous and horrible.

    Eva Wilson 
Eva Wilson

"You're wanted in Everwood for crimes against life! That's pretty cut and dry if you ask me!"

Eva Wilson is a Paladin for Stellina, the Angel of Justice (the main Lawful Good deity for Manjulias). She has takes on on the quest of hunting Zaedalkaah down and bringing her to justice. This sentence is of course, death. Eva Wilson's quite the straight arrow, and isn't interested in the reward offered for Zaedalkaah's capture other than to donate it to charity.

  • Action Girl: Easily defeated Zaedalkaah/Umbria when they actually fought (which consisted of a painful horse kick, Zaedalkaah/Umbria attempting to paralyze Eva and failing).
  • And Imust Scream: Eva was crushed into a bloody cube via Implosion spell. Her soul was then bound to a jewel so she could never get to the heaven that she thought she would go.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: Averted. when she loses the battle against Angelo, Eva attempts to commit Seppuku to avoid a worse fate. This fails, and how she's under his mental control.
  • Brainwashed: What Angelo did to her after preventing her suicide attempt.
  • The Comically Serious: Eva Wilson has never been seen as anything other than deadly serious so far.
  • The Determinator: Successfully resists Angelo's first attempt to magically sway her to like him. The way Angelo looked when she successfully resisted his magic was awesome.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Eva is good, but all work and no play. Umbria/Zaedalkaah even referred to her as Miko Miyazaki.
  • Knight Errant: She swears fealty to Stellina, but doesn't seem to belong to a specific church.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: She complains of being a Paladin sometimes, due to her strict adherance to law and her personal code.
  • Lawful Goodinvoked: Played pretty straight, almost to the point of Lawful Stupid.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: When Angelo appeared and took Umbria/Zaedalkah, Eva pretty boldly called him out on his evil deeds and attacked him, despite Peganone insisting Eva to stand down. The next part did not go well for any of them.
  • Odd Couple: Her partner is her horse, though Charismatic Seaweed is quite a bit less lawful than she is.
  • Paladin
  • Soul Sista: Averted.
  • They Fight Crime: Eva and her fully sentient horse, Charismatic Seaweed.
  • Tragic Hero: Her Tragic Flaw was inflexability in her ethics and alignment and her Tragic Mistake was not backing down even when Angelo gave her the chance to.

    Terramycin Shadowleaf 
Terramycin Shadowleaf

"Living out of your backpack, kicking the Empire's ass... I'm so jealous."

Terramycin is an Elf girl that Julie's group met in a small town they passed through. She doesn't appear to like humans very much, and has strong and hateful feelings toward the Souballo Empire. She also has a son named Daytranna who runs a curiousity shop in the same town. There is more to her and her son than meets the eye.

  • Action Girl: She turns out to be a mid-level rogue and shows off her skills in a battle in the town.
  • Action Mom: Fights alongside her son against the Angelo's Kids who attack the town. She and her son stomp them flat.
  • Badass Normal: She activated a scroll of greater invisibility but has no magic of her own, being a rogue.
  • Fantastic Racism: Terramycin doesn't like humans very much, especially those from the Souballo Empire.
  • Loveable Rogue: She's a fairly charming girl once you get to know her.
  • Heroic Neutral: Expressed an interest in Julie's adventuring but turns out to be more interested in protecting her hometown.
  • It's Personal: Terramycin and Daytranna slay an entire group of Angelo Kids because they murdered a gnome friend of theirs.
  • Our Elves Are Better: She also explains how Elves get their technicolor features.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Not quite seven hundred, but she says she's 245 years old, and oddly enough looks younger than her son.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Played with. She's not evil, but she's a force to be reckoned with.
  • Reluctant Warrior: After her and Daytranna's part of the battle was over, she openly states that she hates fighting.

    Daytranna Shadowleaf 
Daytranna Shadowleaf

"It's better to be lucky than good."

Daytranna is an absentminded Elven man who runs a curiousity shop in a small town Julie and her friends visited. Angelika first visited the store in hopes of getting a new tent, and first had the pleasure of meeting the super long haired man. His Mother is Terramycin, and she helps run the inn in the town. Like his mom, there is more to him than meets the eye.

  • Absent-Minded Professor: Not a professor, but a very disorganized wizard who owns a curiousity shop. He knew there was a tent in his store for Angelika, but it took him 19 minutes to find it.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The side he showed Angelika was quaint and lovably unfocused. The side he showed the Angelo's Kids was a lot less so.
  • Fantastic Racism: Has a fair bit less bile than his mom, but it's still there.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Many wouldn't know he was a capable magician just by looking at him or talking to him.
  • Older than They Look: Odd elven example in that even though Daytranna is Terramycin's son, he looks older than her.
  • Our Elves Are Better: Daytranna's features are late fall/early winter as Terramycin explained.
  • Rapunzel Hair: And various objects get trapped in it, such as caltrops. These caltrops even came in handy when fleeing an Angelo's Kids commander.
  • Squishy Wizard: And the first one not to use fireballs and lightning bolts as their main way to fight. Due to being a Transmuter, he specializes in magic that can make him less squishy and more combat-oriented if need be.
  • Summon Magic: Summons creatures to fight for him with his magic, due to not being able to use evocation magic.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Apparently a sign that he was a late fall/early winter Elf, and he's a wizard which fufills the whole supernatural prerequisite thing.

    Coumadin the Temple Warden 
Coumadin the Temple Warden

"Originality's overrated anyway. As long as it's fun, it can be as memorable and good as any established idea."

Coumadin is the caretaker for the temple of the First Magicant piece. He is a Cleric who can channel negitive energy and has three Wraith coworkers who he hangs around with. He introduced himself into the story by challenging Julie's group and with his Wraith friends managed to defeat Julie's group, forcing them to flee and regroup.

Divine or Demonic Characters

    General 
    Quizmalia, the Lady of Fate and Fortune 
A (probably) Chaotic Neutral deity with a strange sense of fashion. Appears in Julie's dreams as the Palm Tree Ghost. She created the Magicant, a wish granting potential Artifact of Doom, and threw it into the world of mortals For the Lulz. Since then however, she's decided to have someone more responsible go seek it.

  • Wild Card: See also: Chaotic deity named the Lady of Fate and Fortune.
  • Big Good: In charge of the dungeons that hold the pieces of the Magicant, and is the source of outsider help for Coumadin. Also has a vested interest in seeing the Magicant in the hands of Good, if her free counsel to Julie is any clue.
  • Talking in Your Dreams: as the Palm Tree Ghost.
  • Alien Sky: Her home plane of Zebro has a bright orange sky.

     Nehhilio/Nehhilia 
The Sun/Moon that shines above Manjulias. Transforms into the other at Dusk/Dawn, respectively, with a giant explosion.

  • Narrator: Serves this role in establishing shots, which creeps Angelica out to no end.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Nehhilio explodes in order to turn into the moon. This explosion is so large, incidentally, that a reasonably high-INT character can mistake the orange sky of Zebro for it.
  • Art Shift: is played by two photos of humans, a man and a woman, respectively.

    Joyelle the Erinyes 
Joyelle the Erinyes

"I would smile, but I lack the facial muscles required to do so."

Joyelle is an enigmatic Devil, known as a "Force of Joyless Toil". She was introduced as a monster for Julie and her friends to fight before arriving in the city of Autumnson. She originally had the mission of destroying Jordie, a Cleric destined to meet up with Julie.

  • Black Magic: Joyelle can use the magic spell "Unholy Blight" whenever she wants. The spell is specifically designed to kill and sicken creatures with good hearts.
  • The Comically Serious: Joyelle's so utterly serious that the font she uses in her speech bubbles is different than normal.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette:
  • Evil Is Sexy: In-universe example. Rocky commented that "it was actually kinda hot, in an evil librarian sort of way."
  • Flight
  • Foil: The serious, unfunny half of the dynamic Joyelle and Zeggriz share.
  • Genre Blind: Led to her downfall.
  • The Heartless: Joyelle has been described by Julie as "an evil incarnation of joyless toil."
  • Honor Before Reason: Joyelle gives Julie's group a chance to rest before fighting them, and when they do fight Joyelle fights fairly (for the most part).
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Most of Julie's group don't refer to the Erinyes as a female, but as a genderless monster.
  • Killed Off for Real: Along with Zeggriz.
  • Lawful Evilinvoked: In keeping with the source material this comic pays homage to in regards to Devils.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Though she's a Devil.
  • Outside-Context Villain: Aside from her being here to hunt down and destroy Jordie (and Julie as a plan B target), there is next to no information on why this devil is in the story.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Joyelle physically can't smile because the Erinyes lacks the facial muscles.
  • Speech Bubbles: Joyelle's are dark red with yellow text, symbolizing she's an evil outsider.
  • Spock Speak: Never uses contractions when speaking, and even uses a less comic-y font in her speech balloons.
  • Villain Teleportation: Can use this at will, but oddly enough did not use this to her advantage when battling Julie and her friends.
  • Winged Humanoid: Joyelle resembles some kind of fallen angel.

    Zeggriz the Imp 
Zeggriz the Imp

"For Sarbek's Sake, this is so BORING! Go Back to talking about your feats, lack of enchanted weapons, and weaknesses."

Zeggriz is the snarky underling of Joyelle, spying and performing other errands.
