The Royal Family as a whole

Blackagar Boltagon (Black Bolt)

"Imagine you could never make another sound, not for the rest of your life. Not a sigh, not a yawn, not a single word ever."
Inhumans #1: Sonic Youth

The King of Attilan. Due to his uncontrollably destructive voice, he remains completely silent most of the time.
  • Depower: After Infinity, his voice isn't as strong as it was.
  • The Good King: Cares about his people more than anything in the world, and is always ready to defend them to the last stand.
  • Goo Goo Godlike: Even his cries were incredibly destructive (This was back when Inhumans underwent Terrigenesis at birth).
  • Flying Brick
  • Happily Married: With Medusa, most of the time.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: So powerful he can never speak. He is so mentally disciplined that he doesn't even talk in his sleep. His powers are so destructive the Inhumans' Genetic Council has forbidden him from reproducing.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After being abducted and held captive by the Skrulls for an unknown length of time, the first thing Black Bolt did on getting out was to hunt the Skrulls down and try to wipe them out.
  • Shock and Awe: Has this power in addition to his Make Me Wanna Shout one.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Well, take a look at his full name...
  • The Voiceless: A necessity, considering his main power; he mainly communicates using body/sign language and telepathy, usually to his wife, Medusa. However, when someone translates for him, he proves to have a very dry wit.

Medusa

Black Bolt's wife and Queen of Attilan

Maximus Boltagon / Maximus the Mad

Who's the got the voice now, brother? Who's got the voice?'

Black Bolt's brother. He was driven insane when his brother, using his voice to repel a Kree invasion he started

  • Power Born of Madness: He inherited the power capacity of his parents, but the mental instability of his uncle. Eventually he becomes more stable.
  • Put on a Bus: Disappeared for decades. It turned out he'd been taken away and imprisoned underneath Attilan.
  • Troubled, but Cute: If Bentley 23's complaining about the girls at the Future Foundation loving his good looks and brooding nature is to be believed.

Karnak

Black Bolt's cousin.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: His ability.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: He was forbidden to undergo Terrigenesis due to how dangerous his powers would be. However, he still has superhuman strength that all unaltered Inhumans have. He also trained in martial arts and is mentally disciplined enough to perceive flaws and weak points in almost any complex system.
  • Badass Preacher: Attended a seminary.
  • Sherlock Scan: Is capable of picking up on his enemies' attack patterns and discerning their weaknesses in seconds.
  • The Smart Guy: Is Black Bolt's primary tactician (though Black Bolt himself is no slouch in that department).

  • The Berserker: He's got quite the temper. And it got worse after the second exposure.

  • A Father to His Men: A mentor to the Royal Guard cadets he trains.

Dewoz

  • Teleportation: Able to teleport through any reflective surface.

Reader

  • Blind Weaponmaster: As good with a staff as anybody.
  • Handicapped Badass: Blind, but can still put up a fight without relying on his powers. And when he does use them, look out.

So far he's been able to see through his dog's eyes ("See"), stop and reverse time ("Stop" and "Back" respectively), "Fly", and teleport "Go".
  • Rule of Three: He can only read three times a day before needing to recharge.

     NuHumans 
Seemingly ordinary people who experienced Terrigenesis during Infinity and discovered their inhuman heritage.

Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel

See Ms. Marvel (2014) tropes about Kamala.

Dante Pertuz/Inferno

A pyrokinetic drummer who underwent Terrigenesis along with his mother, who did not survive. He was personally rescued from Lash by Queen Medusa and became one of the first NuHumans to reside on Attilan. He initially only agrees to live there with the promise that his pregnant sister (with possibly-inhuman child) would be looked after, but eventually warms up to the rest of the court.
  • Emotional Powers: Before he got his training.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Jason after they end up sharing an apartment together.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: He kept flaming on with his temper before he got some training from Gorgon. Apparently Gorgon has dealt with fire-powers before, and the best way to put them out is to dunk them in a pool.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He tends to end up shirtless after his powers burn through his clothing.
  • Playing with Fire: He can generate fire all over his body, often transforming into a lava-like form when he expends his power in large amounts.
  • Punny Name: Dante's Inhuman alias is Inferno.

Jason/Flint

A teenage boy from Minnesota who gains the power to control stones and minerals. He was initially chosen by Lash to become a member of Orollan, but went with Medusa and Dante after an brief skirmish between the two forces.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: He had to train a lot with Gorgon before he could utilize his power properly.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Dante after they end up sharing an apartment together.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He can control rocks and stones, but not dirt. Still, his power does extend to the ability to control and destroy terrigen crystals.
  • Power Glows: When he uses his ability the stones he's controlling are enveloped in a blue glow.

Naja

A young girl in hiding after her terrigenesis, as it gave her a semi-reptilian appearance and large tail. She meets Jason and Dante on a chance trip outside of New Attilan, and after accompanying them back helps them reclaim the city from the rule of The Unspoken.
  • Cute Monster Girl: She has an off-putting appearance at first, but as you get to know her you find her endearing and unassuming.
  • Emotional Powers: When she feels positive emotions she can turn invisible, when she feels negative ones she turns bright colours.
  • Invisibility: She can camouflage her boy so long as she's confident in herself.
  • Power-Upgrading Deformation: She can fly, turn invisible, and has enhanced strength and speed in her Inhuman form. Unfortunately for her, her new form is also that of a scaly-green lizard-person.

Xiaoyi/Iso

A NuHuman encountered by Reader in China who can control pressure. After several adventures during their travels he turns her over to the Ennilux Corporation, unaware that they plan on using her as the host body for their Capo.
  • Grand Theft Me: The Capo tries to have their minds forcibly swapped so that he can continue survival past his current host's demise. She decides she'd rather not die, and escapes Ennilux.
  • Gravity Master: Of sorts - she can control pressure in an area. It's closer to this than telekinesis, as it amounts to making things squeeze more or less.
  • Groin Attack: She pulls this off with her powers after being attacked in Russia.

Frank McGee/Nur

A former cop and current Security Officer in New Attilan. He made his way to the refuge after his powers resulted in his wife leaving and the NYPD forcing him into early retirement.
  • Blinded by the Light: His ability - his eyes emit light of varying intensity. He can control this, and often uses it to blind opponents.
  • Fair Cop: Served as a detective for thirty years on the NYPD before his transformation.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: His ability doesn't have an off-switch, and his eyes are always glowing to some degree.

Gordon Nobili/Lineage

A washed-up mobster who gained the ability to obtain the knowledge of his ancestors, descendants, and distant relatives upon their death. He becomes an advisor to Medusa upon his arrival at New Attilan thanks to his ability to give her information on Black Bolt's whereabouts.
  • The Chessmaster: It helps that his power gives him access to a significant amount of intel before anybody else.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: He gains the knowledge of anybody in his bloodline upon their death, for starters. And said knowledge manifests in their faces appearing on his body, fully conscious, and seemingly under his persuasion.
  • Multiple Head Case: Averted - though covered in the faces of deceased members of his bloodline, they all seem to be under his sway and never try to exert control over his body.
  • Power-Upgrading Deformation: Zig-zagged. As a human he was old, obese, and weak. As in Inhuman he's much more youthful and muscular...but also bright purple, sprouting multiple horns, and covered in the faces of his dead relatives.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He's bright purple as an Inhuman.
