The Teahouse


Xanthe Atros, owner of the Teahouse

Argent, Xanthe's bodyguard

Remy Dubois, maid

  • Half Identical Twin: Of Rory.
  • Hidden Evil: Only time will tell which way she actually falls. She doesn't look bad, oh no. But (apparently) following her brother to a brothel, failing to express joy or comfort in meeting him again, her arrival inspiring little but worry in him, and her sneaking into his room to declare her intentions of having that room kiiind of seem to point this way.
  • Twincest The woman Rory pictures while masturbating is Remy, his twin sister.




  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Exploited. He knows this all too well. Thus, he milks his ruggedly handsome looks, mixes it with his dandy-like clothes and earned his place that way as top earner of the house.
  • Berserk Button: Itís AXIS, not Alice. Then again, Rhys seems to step on Axis' Berserk Buttons with each step...
  • Buxom Is Better: In the first book's bonus comic, makes it very clear he fancies Claret's rack. Further underlined in the off-site "Ask Axis" feature.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Sometimes to the point of Narm.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: As is apparent from the dirty state of his feet.
  • Eyes of Gold
  • Gayngst: might well be going through it.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Hetero Today: He does make a scene of appreciating female beauty and disliking gay shit.
  • Hot-Blooded: He has some opinions and he's making a spectacle of them.
  • Fiery Redhead: Oh yeah!
  • Jerk Ass: Although he seems more angry than really assholish. When he's not being an asshole, of course. Special mention goes to Rory, who seems to trigger Axis' jerkass-ness without fail.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: With Rhys. Their hair says so.
  • Sex Slave: Subverted. Word of God confirms that he's the only one who's there as a genuine career man, and wants nothing more from his life if he can nap and sex all day long.
  • Stupid Sexy Rhys: As a totally 100% hetero man, Axis doesn't appreciate at all when Rhys smoulders his faggot gases all over him.
  • Transparent Closet
  • Tsundere: He is about as pure type A as it gets, with the default mood of moody. He goes from furious at the thought of being chosen by Rhys to furious at not being chosen by Rhys in the span of four whole panels. Print version gives a nice example of his dere side, which apparently only exists for a few minutes at a time, tops, and can only be seen after he's been worn down by lots and lots of smouldering sex.

Rory Dubois

  • Bishōnen
  • Half Identical Twin: Of Remy.
  • Legal Jail Bait: Very slender and for most parts even effeminate. He's 18 though.
  • NaÔve Newcomer: He's clearly not used to this whole whoring business.
  • Sweet Tooth: Underlining his gentle character, he's rarely seen not making or offering someone cupcakes. Even after the other person has established that they do not in fact care for sweets.
  • Twincest The woman he pictures while masturbating is his twin sister, as revealed in recent pages.


  • Genki Girl
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold
  • Informed Flaw: She's supposed to be the lowest-earning courtesan in the house, but she's cute and well-endowed, has a bubbly personality, has excellent customer service skills and is happy to serve.
  • The Klutz: The cast page (as of Nov 2011), She may not be able to service you, but she can serve you tea. Or spill it all over you. Whatever.
  • The Pollyanna: She's capable of sulking, but mostly she's chipper.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Sweet Tooth: As of character list in November 2012, Voted most likely to eat all the cake.




Rhys D'Ivore

Alistair Grayson Dorian Reed III


  • The Alcoholic: He spends his money on two things, and only one of those is whores.
  • The Bear: Seems to be one of those with his 6'6'', hunky stature. The cast page calls him one, too.
  • Bi the Way: Was a bit disappointed to hear Linneus is not a lady creature, but was happy to try him in any case without much more than a blink.
  • Covered with Scars: They're everywhere.


Sacha Edorovka, Gilder's pocket pet ... colleague.

  • Berserk Button: He hates either being called little, or being noogied. Very possibly both.
  • Funetik Aksent: to wit:
    Sacha: GILDAR! Gildar late!
    Gilder: Hey! How'd you find me?
    Sacha: Is mathematical. Gildar in not at all other whorehouse. Leave only this whorehouse. ... Surprise Gildar afford.
  • Killer Rabbit: Oh he's so tiny and fuzzy and angry! And now everyone is dead.
  • Professional Killer: Works as a team with Gilder. After a comical first appearance, his next appearance is helping Gilder to kill a wealthy gentleman.
  • Uke: played with. He sure looks the part — 5'4" and tiny all over with fluffy hair, big eyes and a tsundere TM pout. Yet his attitude is very, ahem, chili peppery, and the cast page dubs him (as of summer 2012) "voted most likely to try and top you in your sleep".


  • Zephyr Langston, Rhys' captain of the Guard
  • Evelyn D'Ivore, Rhys' sister
  • Gloria Elizabeth Averill Buckley, Rhys' fiancee and Reed's cousin
    • Foreshadowing: After a meeting about their wedding, Gloria threatens that Rhys is free to continue laying half of the nation, but should he ever embarrass Gloria, she'll make his and "his cunt's" life a living hell.
  • Vann Ezra Brennan Bryson, Gloria's valet
  • Yvette Atros, Xanthe's wife
    • Daddy's Girl: evident from how she appeals to Atros to spend more time home. Hint: starts with "Daddy says". Also "voted most likely to have a title Daddy bought for her".
