The less than intelligent demon given charge of Rhea during her stay in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Starts off insufferably cute and naive, but slowly matures as the comic progresses.
Breath Weapon: Like all Fire Demons, though he rarely uses it, likely because his isn't very potent.
Childhood Brain Damage: Buwaro's frequent blows to the head (failed rock catches) might go some way to explain his lack of intelligence, but there are other factors, such as damage to his egg before birth and being left alone for long periods of time.
The Ditz: Initially. He's become much sharper over the course of the story, though he still has some Ditz moments.
Fish out of Water: Very much so, although he's somewhat better about it than he used to be.
Happily Adopted: More after the fact. He was too young to know Darius, the angel who protected him, Iratu and Sakido. But when Kieri read the diary Darius had kept (it was written in the Angelic language, which Buwaro and Rhea didn't know but supposedly Sakido somehow did), and the group realized some of the lengths he went to for their sake, Buwaro came to see him as his father.
Right before they escaped Hell and she died, Sakido asked Rhea to be the big sister for Buwaro that she never was.
Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts to pull one off for Kieri's sake. Fortunately, he was able to recover.
Minion with an F in Evil: Demons punish the dead (usually by torture) for the sins they committed during life. The cruelest thing he's ever done on purpose was stomp on Rhea's tail. He even asked Death (who was actually Darius in disguise) if this was ok before he did it. Rhea proceeded to beat him up in return.
Never Learned to Read: Didn't have much opportunity to, growing up all alone in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Though Kieri is currently teaching him.
Playing with Fire: He's a fire demon, so this is natural. Of course, he's still learning how to control it.
Superpowered Evil Side: In fact, it's technically his default personality (he was even born that way). It's only due to Darius's medallion that he has a more normal self.
Kieri "Snowy" Suizahn
A young angel currently lost in Medius. She's socially awkward, due to her troubled upbringing. Despite this, she's the most competent of the three when it comes to combat.
Baleful Polymorph: Toski turned her into a snow bunny, though it wasn't applied properly and she has some control over it.
Beware the Nice Ones: Although normally sweet and shy, she does lose her temper from time to time. Also, she's the only one of the protagonists (exempting Buwaro's Superpowered Evil Side) to have intentionally killed someone in a fight.
Cute Bruiser: That sword of hers isn't for opening letters...
Jerkass Has a Point: Heathcliff isn't in favor of Buwaro's relationship with Kieri, but it's not based on malice or prejudice. Instead, he pointsout several realistic (if stern) reasons why their relationship is unlikely to work out.
Playing with Fire: It's implied that he's even worse at controlling his fire magic than Buwaro, and is the reason why he lost most of his jobs.
One of the most important characters in the backstory of the comic, Darius was an angel who, after ending up in Hell, basically started raising Iratu, Sakido, and Buwaro before vanishing in an effort to protect them.
Straight Gay: It's only brought up once and has little to no significance to the story.
Foreshadowing: A heck of a lot of it, regarding his continued existence as Death.
Hot-Blooded: His first reaction to seeing Moonshade and Melli fighting is to ask Kieri who he should attack.
Sibling Yin-Yang: Implied. While Kieri was going around helping people while trying to find him, he brought down an avalanche to block a mountain pass for some reason, and got arrested. The two also apparently had an argument prior to getting separated.
You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hairdo is an inverted version of his sister's, being mostly white with blue edges. Just like with Kieri, it's probably dyed.
A wind-aligned elderly angel, and a veteran of the Great War. Does not take well to the idea of angels and demons getting along.
Badass in Distress: He is currently being held prisoner by Iratu and Co. for unknown reasons.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite obviously being very strong physically, it was implied he was normally too drunk and happy-go-lucky to be a major threat. Fast forward to The Reveal that he and his cohorts have slaughtered an entire village without any trouble...
Large and in Charge: Physically the biggest character in the series, and he holds the rank of general among the forces of the villains.
Sizeshifter: Can do this if he takes off his pendant, shrinking down to about six feet tall.
Unstoppable Rage: What happens when you try to wake him while he's sleeping off his drink.
A water demon who, along with her partner Talus, captured and tormented Kieri for a time. Despite that, she is determined to kill Kieri in revenge for her killing Talus.
A Jakkai of unknown origin who seems to be working with the villains. Not much else is known about him. Its been revealed that he seeks to murder the Guardians and steal their powers, as well as to find an artifact he simply calls "The Egg".
Last of His Kind: Thinks he is the last of his bloodline. Of course, he doesn't know that Rhea, who is implied to be of the same bloodline, is no longer dead and has returned to Medius.
Meaningful Name: Refers to the twin moons of Medius, which happen to be the same color as his eyes.
Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can take the shape of the Guardian Moku the Snake, which is implied to be due to killing him.
One of the three great gods, matron of the angels and embodiment of good. Revealed to have been missing for several years.
Big Good: How the inhabitants of Medius mostly perceive her.
The second of the three great gods, creator of the demons and embodiment of evil. Also missing.
Driven by Envy: Was definitely not happy to find out that Gaia got most of the credit for creating Medius. This led to the Great War.
The guide of souls to the afterlife, he's the only one of the three great gods who has appeared so far.
Don't Fear The Reaper: Despite his dark dragon-like appearance, he's fairly friendly, so this seems to be in effect. Of course, that's because it's not really Death...
Have You Seen My God?: He's one of the three great gods, while the other two have gone missing. He went looking for the other two and promptly disappeared as well.
A servant of Death, this fearsome dog guards the gates to Hell. Despite traditionally being three-headed, it apparently is missing the middle head currently. Later revealed the the middle head, known as "Blue", is part of Darius's disguise as Death.
Multiple Head Case: Each head has a distinct personality. The red one is mostly silent and the Straight Man, while the green head seems to be more Hot-Blooded. The blue head is friendly yet somewhat naive.
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Toski the Rabbit sided with Hell during the Great War. She is responsible for Kieri's curse.
Baleful Polymorph: Kieri's curse. Apparently it didn't work quite as well as intended.
The Trickster: Apparently has no problem taking a human form and stealing from shops, then cursing anyone who tries to stop her.
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Siara the Lynx took the side of Heaven during the Great War. Apparently Cliff has some connection to her, as his power takes on her form.
Playing with Fire: She's one of the three guardians of fire. And judging from what Cliff did, she probably has this power.
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Meeros the Mortori Bird is an...interesting character, to say the least. He once cursed Cliff with a similar curse to Kieri's.
Clever Crows: Or mortori birds, anyways. They're his symbol/patron animals, and he's very protective of them. They used to be viewed in the standard way; bad luck, omens of death and war, etc., but Meeros put a lot of hard work into his godly PR, so now they are viewed as symbols of love and life.
The Gadfly: He's not a bad sort, but he definitely gets a kick out of messing with Cliff. (He also tries it with Buwaro, but Buwaro misses the point.)
Gentleman Snarker: Manages to be polite while still throwing sarcastic quips around (mostly aimed at Cliff).
One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Melli the Fire Bee sided with Heaven during the Great War. Is something of a patron to the city of St. Curtis.
