Characters: Sunstone
The cast of the Deviantart webcomic Sunstone by Stjepan Sejic.

    open/close all folders 

     The Protagonists 

Lisa Williams

The main protagonist of Sunstone and its primary narrator. She plays the "sub" in her and Ally's relationship, and initially met her face-to-face after months of interaction via the Internet to meet those desires. What follows is a blossoming romance between the two, which she is seen chronicling post Time Skip.

Allison Carter

Lisa's best friend/lover and the secondary protagonist of Sunstone. She works as a software programmer during the day and displays geeky tendencies, which contrasts sharply with her "domme" persona in her and Lisa's relationship. Over time, she too starts realizing her attraction towards Lisa.
  • Adorkable: Especially her Out of Character moments during sex when she becomes nervous or geeks out over pierced nipples.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Allycat," which is actually her forum screenname.
  • Berserk Button: Needing on a drop that Ally's got her eye on when she's MMOing is a good way to get her pissed enough to challenge you to Cluster F-Bomb-laden PVP.
  • Brains and Bondage: Highly intelligent programmer? Check. Sexy Spectacles? Check. Crazy amount of BDSM gear? CHECK.
  • Friends with Benefits: Started out as this to Lisa.
  • Gamer Chick: Given her job, it's to be expected.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Her snoring could wake the dead.
  • Hidden Depths: Ally at first seems like a confident and successful person; but it becomes clear that she is terribly lonely and has some regrets she can't manage to overcome.
  • Hime Cut
  • My Greatest Failure: Ally regards what happened with Marion as this. She blames herself for showing Marion "too much, too fast" during Harper's class on Shibari, and the following development of the obsession that ultimately led Marion to tie herself to Alan's bed. It especially hurt for her because she had to physically restrain Marion from trying to undo the ropes around her clotted wrists for the sake of her safety, even when Marion, in agonized desperation, started using her safeword in a panicked bid to get Ally to let her go. The traumatic experience led to an aversion to using ropes that Ally eventually overcomes.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Possibly the poster girl for this trope.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
  • Safe Word: Ally's safeword, which she gives to her subs, is "sunstone."
  • Sexy Spectacles: Ally wears a pair of these when in her domme persona.
  • Where Does She Get All Those Wonderful Toys?: Ally has a staggeringly impressive collection of toys, including an entire wardrobe of custom made outfits for both of her subs and herself, cuffs, chains, restraints and suspension rigs, a custom made mermaid outfit, the infamous "see-saw," a made-to-order bed just for sex and, last but certainly not least, an actual chariot. We are shown that Alan and Chris make a living out of making these things for people and that Ally is really quite well off, but Word of God states that Ally has spent forty grand on this collection. Lampshaded somewhat in a strip:
    Lisa: Okay, I tried avoiding this question...but, yeah...How much did you spend on all this stuff?
    Ally: Yeahhh...um, quite a bit...so...really...don't ask.
    • Collecting BDSM equipment and outfits turns out to be Ally's only recreational spending outlet, and she spent so much on this stuff that Alan had to intervene and refuse to sell her any more (at least until Lisa arrived and the two of them started putting these numerous outfits to use).

     Supporting Cast 

Alan Benson

Ally's ex-boyfriend turned best friend. He designs BDSM gear and paraphernalia for clubs and clients, and is Ally's primary supplier. Oh yeah — he's also a quite skilled dominant, comparable to Ally herself.

Anne

A tattoo artist and long-time friend of Cassie whose curiosity about BDSM leads her headfirst into Lisa and Ally's alternative lifestyle.
  • Bi the Way: Despite stating in-current-universe that she doesn't swing that way, she is shown to be attracted to Lisa and a future strip shows her married to Alan.
  • Closet Key: Is the catalyst that causes Ally and Lisa to admit their feelings for each other.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Despite being a tattoo artist, she is relatively innocent and naive compared to the rest of the cast.
  • Head-Tiltingly Kinky: Her initial reaction to BDSM, which only gets her more curious.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: Has had both black AND brown hair in the past, in addition to blonde!
  • Na´ve Newcomer: To the world of BDSM.
  • Platonic Life Partners: With Cassie, though the two sometimes flirt with each other, neither one notices until it's brought to their attention.

Cassie

Chris' sister and Anne's best friend and a fellow BDSM fan. Happily Married to Tom.

Chris

Alan's work colleague and Cassie's brother; notably not at all interested in BDSM.
  • Muggle: One of the few recurring characters not into BDSM.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Takes everything that happens at the club with an almost bored expression.

Tom

Cassie's husband, a metalhead and a quite talented snarker.

Harper Thomas

The owner of the BDSM club that the cast frequent to.

Tanya Wilkins

Harper's girlfriend and accountant.

Marion

An ex-girlfriend of Alan who had a bad experience with BDSM which continues to haunt Ally.
  • Body Horror: Played in disturbingly realistic fashion when we're shown the dangers of careless rope work. Marion uses the wrong sort of knots on her wrists combined with improper positioning of the ropes on the bed out of obsession with trying to prove Alan wrong about 24/7 submission (which Alan isn't into for a variety of reasons, chiefest among them being that it is highly stressful for the dom), and finds herself trapped and alone while the blood circulation to her hands is cut off. Her hands go lifeless and visibly dark grey in color. It gets worse when we're told this had caused blood clots and Marion could have lost her hands, if not her life.
  • Fan Nickname: "Cruella," both in-story and out.
  • Idiot Ball: Keen to convince Alan to try 24/7 dominance and submission, Marion did something everyone (including herself) agrees was stupid; unfortunately for Marion, she realized this only at the moment she slipped the knots about her wrists tight without a way to undo them.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: This hit Marion hard; being new to the type of relationship she was sharing with Alan caused her to discard her better judgement in favor of doing everything she could to take things further, leading to a very bad situation.
  • Multicolored Hair: Black on one side, white on the other.
