Relatives of the Students and Staff

    Slade Ashen 

Slade Ashen

Valerie and Isaac's late father, Slade was a protege David Archer's during his active crimefighting days, and was a close ally of James. He possessed mastery over hydrokinesis and its derivation cryokinesis, a rare feat, and has fought against numerous supervillains that threatened the world. Slade went missing and was presumed dead following a dangerous mission many years ago.

The truth about his ultimate fate is far more complicated, however.

    Scorpius and Andromeda DeRain 

Scorpius and Andromeda DeRain

Alderon and Swilium's parents, these two villains have frequently clashed with both James and the Fairweather family—and also had a brief rivalry with Simon's family. Andromeda, a blood mage with demonic lineage, has connections to the Underworld, while Scorpius is a master thief who passed his talents on to his favored son, Swilium.

    William and Jennifer Fairweather 

William and Jennifer Fairweather

Talan and Tala's parents, William and Jennifer served as The Big Guy and The Chick, respectively, in James' Five-Man Band in the past.

    Rudolph Kleiner 

Rudolph Kleiner

Role: CEO of Normco

    Sabrina Shannon 

Sabrina Shannon

Beth's deceased "mother" of sorts. Sabrina was an exotic dancer and lady of the night who had a fling with Jonathan. Except not really. She died in a building collapse a short time afterward which was caused by Jonathan when she denied his advances. Despite her profession, Sabrina was still a good person nonetheless; she ended up working at the Den of Angels, an exotic nightclub in Kragsmark staffed by angels—one of multiple places in town where the party can pick up new missions. Beth can also reunite with her mother here.

    Eve Ulrich 

Eve Ulrich

Layla's mother, and believed to be Emily and Jana's as well. Much of her life remains enshrouded, as she spent more time with her work than with her daughters—all that is known is that she was a brilliant scientist. Consumed with grief after the original Layla's tragic death, Eve vowed to recreate her daughter and give her the happy life she never had, creating three clones of her. However, once Vilhelm started his rampage of converting people into twisted cyborgs, she helped her daughters escape, imprinting memories of a happy, idyllic life into their minds to conceal the truth. Later, after they briefly reunite to help a fourth subject escape Vilhelm's grasp, Eve ends up sacrificing herself to destroy the original lab, ensuring her work could not be misused.

Allies

    Dr. David Archer 

Dr. David Archer

One of the oldest active superheroes--possibly the very first of the modern-day ones. Dr. Archer has lived a long and storied career of fighting crime and evil, leading his own superhero team in the past. In the present, he's comfortably retired, becoming a mentor and teacher to Corvus—though he's not as frail as he looks, given his immense psychic prowess. It turns out he's a double agent for Terminus, believing he can still make a difference in the world by helping her cult in their missions.

    Samantha Grayson 

Samantha Grayson

A female version of Sam from Helena's universe. The two met when they were prisoners together in Knight Research's test labs. The two staged a breakout, helping many prisoners escape, and lived on the run together, eventually becoming romantically involved. A few months later, though, the demonic Helena (the one from the heroes' universe) attacked the town they lived in with an army of demons. Though the two repelled the invasion, Samantha was mortally wounded in the fight. Nevertheless, she had a profound impact on Helena, even after she left for other universes.

Trope-wise, she bears a lot of similarities to her male counterpart, so differences only here.

  • Blood from the Mouth: A short time before she dies.
  • Cycle of Revenge: At one point, she tells Helena that getting revenge is pointless, and only leads to further violence and suffering. It becomes important during the fight with Demon Helena in the present.
  • Declaration of Protection: She vows to protect Helena once they escape.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: In Helena's, specifically.
  • Gender Flip: Sam's a girl in this alternate universe.
  • Genki Girl: Invoked; she deliberately puts on a cheerful disposition to brighten Helena's day a lot of the time.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She sacrifices herself to block an attack from Demon!Helena that would have killed a group of innocent people.
  • Ill Girl: Downplayed; Samantha is shown to be very frail as a result of her experiences at Knight Research.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: During her struggle with Demon!Helena, she ends up stabbed through the gut with a metal blade. She fights for a little while longer, before bleeding out and passing away in Helena's arms.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Was in love with Helena, and also very feminine.
  • The Lost Lenore: Even after her death, she still has a lasting impact on Helena.
  • Morality Chain: Her words about revenge being pointless end up keeping Helena from killing her evil self in the present.
  • Posthumous Character: She shows up in a few flashbacks.
