    open/close all folders 


A self-proclaimed pimp who is ostensibly the main character of the strip. Late in the strip, he hugs the wrong demon, who BZOMFs him and creates his Superpowered Evil Side named Sleaze.

As of a recemt storyline, he managed to get rid of Sleaze... only to make it worse...

A hippie feminist girl who is the main target of Slick's attentions. As of 2013-09-08, Monique's shadow has turned demonic, determined to protect Monique from things such as rotten tomatoes, through disproportionate retribution. The demon shadow's name is apparently Demonique, not to be confused with Monique herself when she played at being a demon.

Nerdy bookworm who reads a lot under a tree.

A weed smoking stoner pig. Slick's best friend.

     Divine Beings 


  • Big Good: He's the chief force for good in the comic, even if it's sometimes difficult to tell. However, ever since the Sisterhood storyline took precedence, he's been a neutral force at best and barely present except for one-panel gags.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer / Genius Ditz / Cloudcuckoolander: He spends his time putting on puppet shows, usually at someone's expense (mainly the Devil's), making silly art pieces, and even performing magic tricks. Regardless, he's still God.
  • Demoted to Extra: Oddly enough. He's appeared sparingly since roughly 2012, and his role in the plot has diminished to almost nothing.
  • The Faceless: All you ever see are his hands, with or without puppets.
  • God Is Good: An arse, maybe, but good.
  • Good Is Not Nice: It's downright mean sometimes.
  • Jerkass God
    Slick: Why did you make me like this?
    God: Just to see if I could.
  • Hand Puppet: God in this comic seems to communicate primarily through this.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: He puts on shows for attention and seems genuinely concerned with whether they are entertaining. The fact that the Devil is more popular than him bothers him immensely, and he even cries when he thinks that no one believes in him anymore.
    Seymour: You're in our schools! Our courts! Our ballparks! Our money! You're everywhere!
    God: I just want to be in your heart.
  • King of All Cosmos: Imagine the Judeo-Christian God as a Mad Artist with a goofy sense of humor and you've pretty much got the idea.
  • Pet the Dog: When not viciously mocking his creations, God can actually be a nice guy. He even pet Monique's head when she started crying. He also tells Slick he will get a companion for him which results in Monique feeling a calling. Sure, she never makes it to the reunion point, but that was the succubi girls doing.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He threatens to smite Devil every other time. They constantly pick on each other... But missed him when D retired. Also, the Dragon and God frequently banter, and Dragon tend to pulverize his cloud, torch his hand puppet or something else, they scuffle a bit... rinse, repeat.

The Devil
Needs no explanation.

Needs no further explanation.

The Dragon
Representative of all Eastern religion.


The grim reaper.


A fuchsia-colored succubus, also known as Fyoosh. She has undergone extensive character development (and got lots of screen time) since late 2008.

Blue (formerly Baby Blue)
A blue succubus. Overall, still mostly evil. Given her Character Development and her role in The Devil's industries, it would be most incongruous to continue calling her "Baby Blue".

Angie (a.k.a. "Tangerine"/"Pebbles")
A dark orange succubus created from a country girl.

Absinthe (a.k.a. "Abby")
A Devil girl stripper brought in by the Devil to replace Fuchsia.

Lil' Evil / "Lily"
An (Ex) Satanist fundamentalist.

The bouncer at the Devil Girl Strip Club.
  • Bouncer: The gatekeeper of the Devil Girl Strip Club. Who he's keeping out is a mystery, though he seems to have something against half-demons.
  • Dumb Muscle: He's got just enough brains to do his job.
  • Fantastic Racism: Blocked Lil' E from entering the club because he's a "Halfling", although he's probably just following orders.
  • Half-Breed Discrimination: See Fantastic Racism above.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He's pretty much just doing his job. Presumably he's still evil off the clock, but we have no indication of that.

A succubus working as a stripper in the devil girls strip club.

A little scientist demon in charge of Deviltech as well as the Devil's surveillance systems.

You shouldn't do that. Not without proper training.

A demon who may be looking to overthrone The Devil. He's also a growing artist, and quite vain about his art. He was the only known demon able to enter the Reality Zone for an appreciable amount of time, until Fuchsia finally pushed herself into it.

Demon Entourage
Vainglorious' Assistant and general all around toady.

Bondage Guy

A male embodiment of the trope Bondage Is Bad. Dressed up in leather and a hood, he preaches the evil gospel of BDSM, patriarchy, male supremacism and porn — all rolled into one.

Bondage & Domination

A pair of female embodiments of the trope Bondage Is Bad.


A demonic version of Slick created by a incorrectly cast BOMF.


A Christian fundamentalist.

The Cartoonist
Mostly keeps to himself. The owner of Pooch and Percy.

Xanthe Justice (Named here.)
A short, shades-wearing arch-feminist who rides a Big Wheel tricycle.

Clio Merembe
A bicycle riding black feminist girl, who was named here.

The machine expert of the Sisterhood.

Miko/The Fan Girl
A young fan of "It Girl" Monique

A girl first seen being trained by Nana. Also seen with the rest of the Sisterhood.

Lil'E's missing mother.

Coffee Shop Lady/Nana
An elderly and benevolent woman who runs a coffee shop. Oh, and also teaches Kung Fu.

Francis Sebastian

The default gay character in Sinfest.

Barack Star

Showed up around the '08 elections to counter Sarah Piglin.


A young fan of the Cartoonist.

The Fifth Sister

  • Ambiguously Brown: From the way she's drawn, she's clearly not white. But that's about the only thing that is clear.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Befriends the Dragon who, despite his general amicability, doesn't seem to have many friends.
  • The Medic: She can even nurse The Dragon back to health. From a wound he's had for more than a year.
  • Token Good Teammate: Even the Sisterhood's detractors consider her this.


A young woman who went on a date with Criminy early in the strip's run (in 2002). She reappears in 2012, as a consequence of Blue's search for dirt on Criminy.
  • Ascended Extra: She appeared once before on a date with Criminy only to reappear a decade later in later arcs.
  • 555: When she approached Criminy out of the blue and asked him to call her, her number was 555-1234.
  • Fluffy Tamer: She manages to pacify Criminy's devil books, having experience with them from work.
  • Love Hurts: She waited for Criminy to call her back after the date but he never did.
  • Meaningful Name: Female Demons have names that reflect their colors, and normally a color name means that he/she is a demon of that color. This is probably averted here, because although Amber is a color, it's also a common girls' name. Also, her initial appearance appeared well before the naming practice began.

Aunt Kate, Miss Hekate

Nana's sister, and a stern witch. She's the proprietess of the Witches Inn.
  • The Ace: To date, she's the only person who has been able to physically harm God. She also effortlessly defeats any of Satan's minions that come her way.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Tall, pale, black-haired and much colder than Nana.
  • Always Someone Better: She's a far superior witch to Nana, mostly because she spends more time practicing.
  • The Bully: She seems to have been this way in witch school, and her favorite target was Lilith. But it was mostly harmless pranks.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She has a very sinister appearance, but she's a very benevolent witch.
  • Detect Evil: She can sense the presence of Satan's surveillance technology.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: She went to Witch Academy with Nana and Lil E's mother.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She may be cold, harsh, and somewhat arrogant, but she's hardly a bad person.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: She has this motif, in direct contrast with her more Witch Classic sister
  • Hell Hotel: Subverted. Witches Inn is a very creepy place, filled to the hilt with occult paraphernalia and horror movie clichés. But it's actually a very pleasant place and now serves as a sanctuary for rogue fembots.
  • Horned Humanoid: She has a pair of antlers. Apparently, she's had them since she was a kid.
  • Noodle Incident: She has some sort of bad blood with DevilTech, but specifics have yet to be revealed.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: She's Satan's enemy, but she doesn't care about the Patriarchy. Her beef with him appears to be personal.

     Other Supernatural Beings 

Ezekiel and Ariel
An inseparable pair of angels.

The Zombie
The zombie of one (or more) of the damned souls who loved Fuchsia's stories. Deprived of these after her Heel–Face Turn, he's now escaped to look for her.

Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty
Not the happiest family, at least these days. Uncle Sam is theoretically well-meaning, but flinchy and easily misguided. Most definitely not depressed. Also, get off his lawn.

Enough said. First seem shooting an arrow to Criminy to fall in love with Fuchsia.

The Overseer

A mysterious and ominous hooded figure that apparently controls the Bomf District on and off the internet.

The Old Year, known progressively in Roman Numerals from MMVIII to MMXVIII.

Usually an old man, appearing in December, always appearing the same. Futilely tries to avoid meeting his doom, but failing that, settles for Going Out with a Bang, sometimes bringing Death with him. (Death always gets better.)

  • Ascended Extra: MMVIII was a bit character for a one-off gag in 2008. Nowadays, the New Year has a story-arc that averages about two weeks long.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the previous year, allowing for a recurring gag of Death killing him off every January.
  • Boisterous Weakling: MMXVII has a lot of scrap in her, but at the end of the day, she's still just an old woman literally days away from death. She can barely walk, let alone fight.
  • Born-Again Immortality: The Old Year is possibly reborn every year as Baby New Year, brought by the Stork. It is very much an open question.
    • At least once, Baby New Year was baptized in the Lethe, suggesting that he was the Old Year and had to lose his memories.
    • On the other hand, this theory may have been Jossed here. MMXV is back in his old man form, being transported by Charon across the River Styx to his final destination. He watches as the Stork flies through the sky with the new baby MMXVI.
    • On the third hand, MMXVI takes a bite of fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, and remembers fun events of the previous Old Years.
  • Deal with the Devil: MMXV signed a contract with The Devil for eternal youth in desperate bid to avoid his death. It works, but wears off when he flies over the Reality Zone just long enough for Death to get his shot in.
  • Doomed by Canon: A rare non-prequel version.
  • Do Not Go Gentle: From MMX onwards, almost all of the New Years have fought Death tooth-and-nail to live (MMIX actually quotes this trope word-for-word, but doesn't actually get around to the fighting part). The one exception so far is MMXVII, who instead fights against the pimps in the BOMF District. When Death comes for her, she goes completely peacefully.
  • Face Death with Dignity: The Grim Reaper reminds MMXVII that her time is up and she leaves with him peacefully.
  • Gender Flip: MMXVII is female, apparently.
  • Legacy Character: Each new year is indistinguishable from the previous, except for by their name.
  • In-Series Nickname: Father Time.
  • Took a Level in Badass: If MMXVII's introduction is any indication. It has been borne out so far, as she is the only one of the new years so far to actively fight against the Devil's henchmen.

     Sentient Items/Pets 

Rogue Fembot
A companionship gynoid created by Deviltech and bought by Slick.

Weaponized Fembot and her Three Copies

A fembot created by Milton to destroy Rogue Fembot. After falling into the Reality Zone, she was destroyed by a self-destruction mechanism. Her memory chip was retrieved by the Sisterhood and uploaded to her copies. Only three survived the escape and they're looking for Rogue Fembot.

Second Runaway Fembot

She's watching the news coverage in the Search arc, and a commentator poses the standard terrorist or freedom-fighter question. This motivates her to run away. She meets up with and befriends the runaway Lady Liberty. By the time of MMXV, they've learned the joys of jumping in leaves.


A demonic book.


A feminist devilbook.


Slick's laptop.


The Devil's pet three-headed female dog. Her sex is canonically established when Sleaze wishes for "hot bitches" on Christmas Eve.

Illuminati Drones

Small, pyramid-shaped flying Cyclopes created by Milton that serve as the Devil's spies.


An Illuminato drone who became Lily and Tange's companion after being used to break out in the "Devil Tech Headquarters" arc. It has since become inseparable from them.

Enlightened Drones

Illuminati drones, sent forth by Satan, met the Buddha and got Enlightened. Apparently Satan can't zap them back.

Percival and Pooch
A cat (Percy) and dog (Pooch) of the Author Avatar whose antics are mostly irrelevant to the rest of the strip (but are funny!)
