    open/close all folders 


The heroine of the story, a orphan who was left on the doorstep of the Sister of Mercy chapel and raised by Sister Catharine. Though she tries to fit in with the other nuns, she feels horribly out of place. That all changes one particular night as she's using the can and gets an unexpected visitor.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Starting with confronting Grimm with a holy watergun and later learning nun-fu. She also becomes much more assertive as the comic goes on.
  • Wacky Cravings: Due to her pregnancy she seems to have gotten an odd taste for wood.

An angel who delivers the news to Claire that she will be the next mother of the holy one. Playful and supportive, she does her best to prepare her for the trials to come.
  • Spirit Advisor: Well she is an angel.
  • We Have Reserves: Her bubble babies.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Catherine chews her out for introducing herself to a young Clarie naked. This wouldn't be so bad, except Clarie starts making drawings of her in that form and Catherine is rightly worried that this won't sit well with the other sisters if they see it.


Claire's guardian and maternal figure. She was the one who found Claire and raise her, thus both have a deep attachment to one another even though she's allergic to cats and Claire constantly stays in contact with them. However it seem there are some secrets she been hiding from both Claire and the Sisters of Mercy that have recently been coming to light. Secrets that seem to be connected to Claire.
  • Parental Substitute: Just as good as any mother to Claire.
  • Plot Allergy: Allergic to cats which is the only negative in her relationship to Claire. And considering her connection with Grimm, their might be a deeper reason for it.
  • Punny Name: Sister Catharine. May be counted as Foreshadowing once you consider her relationship with Grimm.
  • Sanity Slippage: Whatever affecting her is messing with her demeanor and is only getting worse during the travels.
  • Tsurime: Further emphasizing her relation to cats.


A.K.A Evil Cat. The evil Cheshire looking cat that seems to be stalking Claire. Catharine did a ritual which somehow enables it to posses her body. It wants Claire for some reason, but for what hasn't been revealed yet.


A cat that Claire has taken in.

  • Beauty Equals Goodness: After Clarie purifies its Shard form, it comes back as a white kitten.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Was once a Shard monster that Claire managed to purify when she was little.
  • Nonhuman Sidekick: Considering how often it hangs around Clarie and is usually the one leading the other cats.
  • Team Pet: To Claire Which isn't surprising, given their past.


A very strict nun of the Sisters of Mercy. Enjoys punishing Claire for any minor offenses.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Green-skinned least when her energia's being blocked. It becomes normal when it's not.
  • Fan Disservice: Ugh! Seriously, Yamino?!
  • Glowing Eyes: When summoning the mecha.
  • Jerkass: Same as above. Her personality turns a 180 after her energia is unblocked.
    • Interestingly, the storyline for Sister Claire's past shows that while Marguerite was still not exactly cuddly back then, she did get along pretty well with little Claire. Among other things, she looked after her with some kindness when Catherine was ill, apologized for frightening her when having a panic attack over a fire, and sincerely thanks Claire for bringing her tea.
  • Playing with Syringes: We see her first interaction with Claire sticking her with needle full of laxitives as punishment for playing with cats
  • Sink or Swim Mentor: She's the one who trained Catharine.
  • Summon Magic: Her power is connected to a mecha that was given to the search party by Mother Superior. The problem however is that she needs to keep her emotions in check otherwise it'll run rampant.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Only when her energia being blocked.
  • Torture Technician: She really loves her job.
  • Write Who You Know: Based off a nun during the author's catholic school days. Exaggerated of course.


The head sister or "Mother Superior" of the Sisters of Mercy. A short, fairly rational minded elderly nun.


One of the teachers of the covenant. She's the one that trains Claire in the art of Nun-Fu.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: During her apprentice days, her mentor was killed and eaten by wolf witches after saving her while she looked on helpless to do anything. She vowed from then on to not let something like that happen again.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In her less serious moments, she's this.
  • Heroic RROD: Her Hulking Out power is useful against monsters but, along with affecting her judgement, it puts a toll on her body's muscles including her heart. Meaning she can only use it in short bursts.
  • He Who Fights Monsters/Knight Templar: Her hatred of witches has some unfortunate layers. Though it's revealed in Missing Moments, she's a transfer from the Helsing group of nuns who're infamous for this behavior.
  • Hulking Out: Can use a special technique to make her herself much more muscle-y, giving he a power boost.
  • Massively Numbered Siblings: The sole sister to six brothers.
  • Reality Ensues: And turns out Hulking Out like that leaves her with some wicked stretch marks.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has a few on her left eye, as well as all over her body.
  • Sink or Swim Mentor: As mentioned, she put Claire through rigorous training to toughen her up.
  • Tsundere: Is becoming one as the story goes.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets called out for her unnecessary force by Sister Jackson and Yolanda.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: A side effect of her power-up. The longer she stays within it, the more it affects her judgement that she'll start attacking both friend and foe.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to protect people, but is a tad overzealous in trying to fight evil that it often clouds her sense of right and wrong.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: At some point while tracking Claire's group. She's poisoned which is slowly killing her. It eventually takes it's toll rendering her unable to walk and Marguerite states she only has hours left.

    Rosalie and Marie 

Two twin sisters who befriend Claire after her first tiff with a Grimm-Possessed Catharine.

    Jane Jackson 
Another one of Sisters of Mercy. She seem to be the most normal sisters among the bunch.


Another teacher and nun. Mentor and Parental figure to Rosalie and Marie.


One of the Helsing nuns, known for being excessively violent in her pursuit of witchcraft.
  • Expy: Based on a combination of Jonah Hex and Van Helsing.
  • Body Horror: The right side of her face.
  • Knight Templar: A very hardcore one, so much so that Sister Jackson has a hard time describing Abraham's methods in her letter.
  • Hanging Judge: From the looks of the panel that introduced her.



A seemingly normal bar worker that a few of the tracking Sisters of Mercy encounter. It turns out he's a Wolf Witch.
  • Berserk Button: Don't touch his dog. Also nuns, especially if they're monster hunters.
  • Happily Adopted: Played with. His clan was wiped out by Witch Hunters, and he was taken in by another clan. But while the clan leaders see,treat,and love him like their own son, his bullying "sister" Azi makes it her business to make him feel inferior and constantly tell him that they aren't really his family.
  • In the Hood: In his Witch outfit.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: His over-zealousness revealed that the Wolf Witches clan was still alive to the nuns, which forced his pack to relocate. To add insult to injury, his pack was a peaceful division of Wolf Witches. So he wound up putting his whole family in danger for a petty grudge which the leaders rightly chastise him for.
  • Shout-Out: His design, both physically and clothing-wise, is a deliberate reference to Ezio from Assassin's Creed II


Lupo's sister.

  • Deal with the Devil: Offers to heal Olga from the poison slowly killing her. But in exchange she must not hunt Wolf Witches ever again or she'll turn into what she fears most.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Always seems itching for a fight and nearly pummeled Lupo over an accidental scratch during their arguing.
  • In the Hood: A red one.
  • Jerkass: Constantly puts down Lupo and keeps reminds him that he's an outsider in their clan. Her introduction to the search party nuns likewise wasn't the most subtle of entrances considering her leaders (i.e mother and father) specifically told her to find and protect them.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: It was Lupo's fault that the clan was forced to relocate due to his need for vengeance. She also chastises him that he should've took into consideration his family as well before doing the act.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting : A trait of the wolf witches which allow her to change into a normal and hybrid wolf forms.
