!!Eugene Greenhilt

->''"I'll have you know that I was named Best Illusionist of the Year three times by the Wizzie Awards by the time I was your age."''

->'''Race:''' Ghost (formerly human)\\
'''Gender:''' Male\\
'''Class:''' Wizard (illusionist)\\
'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood (at time of death[[note]]He is currently waiting for a member of his family to fulfill the BloodOath he made years ago to slay Xykon; until that time, he is stuck in a limbo-like plane of existence where the deceased go to see which afterlife they are suited for. Based on Roy's judgement, it is implied that he is not really LawfulGood, or rather that he has failed to live up to the responsibilities of his alignment, and had not truly been LawfulGood for several years. The Prequel comic indicated that he would have been allowed in at the time of his death, but his impatience and inability to do anything has since resulted in an alignment shift.[[/note]])

Roy's rather selfish father who swore a BloodOath of Vengeance after Xykon killed and zombified his master. He's a condescending asshole to damn near everyone. [[PosthumousCharacter Dead before the beginning of the story]], he pays ghostly visits to his son.
* {{Abusive Parent|s}}: Of the emotional/neglectful variety, mainly, but there's a few hints of others. Most notably, it's strongly implied that his careless neglect resulted in the death of his infant son. [[spoiler: Now confirmed. His tinkering with spells resulted in the young child's death, but he refused to try to make up for it aside from resurrection spells or even admit that he'd done anything wrong.]]
* AccidentalMurder: Of Eric, who died in the process of his research.
* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: As seen in the prequels, Eugene led his own party of adventurers to pursue Xykon when he was a much younger man.
* BloodOath: "I, Eugene Greenhilt, swear on the blood that flows from my wounds this day that I shall not rest, in this life or any other, until I or my heirs have enacted horrible vengeance on those that have slighted me, named here as Xykon the sorcerer."
* DeathIsCheap: He died and was resurrected 6 times before finally succumbing to old age.
* DirtyOldMan: Being dead hasn't stopped him from dating. By his own admission, he's been spying on Haley under the shower.
* GoodIsNotNice: When his soul was getting judged, it was stated that he never did anything seriously wrong in his life, but he ''was'' a {{jerkass}}.
* GretzkyHasTheBall: He thinks there are homeruns in soccer, and has no clue if winning a game by 3-2 is good. His wife Sara deconstructs this by pointing out that as smart as he is, he could easily learn the rules of any physical sport in a short time, but won't because he feels it's beneath him.
* GrumpyOldMan: He looks just as old as the day he died in the afterlife, even though the afterlife allows people to look like idealized self-images (see the entry for his wife Sara Greenhilt). This because he was always bitter and ornery by nature, though the Blood Oath he swore didn't help.
-->'''Roy:''' Then why did Dad still look like a wrinkled old man?\\
'''Sara:''' Because your father has ALWAYS been a wrinkled old man in his heart, he was just hiding in a younger man's body most of his life.
* HandshakeRefusal: As a ghost, he's lost the ability to hold anything corporeal, so he doesn't see the point to using handshakes anymore.
* HappilyMarried: According to Sara, there was a time in his life where he was 100% devoted to being a good husband, which is why she doesn't want Roy to speak ill of him. But then he became 100% devoted to something else. "Till death do you part," indeed.
* InsufferableGenius: Has a natural disdain for fighters, which is the reason why he never got along with his father and son. Likewise, his master was also quite arrogant towards sorcerers, which got him killed by Xykon.
* IResembleThatRemark: In ''Recap/OnTheOriginOfPCs'', Roy suggests that a common flaw amongst arcane spellcasters is a supreme belief in their own abilities. Eugene's response is an arrogant tirade about how magic is all-powerful and there is no problem that it cannot solve.
* {{Jerkass}}: Disdain for fighters, emotionally abusive to his children, and overall a cranky and bitter person. His father even mentions that Eugene was rude and disrespectful to him simply for being a fighter.
* JerkassHasAPoint: In ''Start of Darkness'' he refuses to cooperate with Right-Eye to take down Xykon because he says he has a son to raise, and suggests that Right-Eye drop it too. He immediately follows it up with being a jerk and showing his hypocrisy, but his point was valid.
-->'''Eugene:''' Well, if you want my advice, you should both forget about working for some evil mastermind and move forward with your lives. When you're dead, you're never going to look back on your life and say, [[TemptingFate "Darn, I didn't spend enough time on petty revenge."]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: One scene in ''Start of Darkness'' portrays him as such, [[spoiler:where he declines a perfect opportunity to defeat Xykon out of concern for leaving his wife widowed and son fatherless. [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Assuming he wasn't using that as an excuse]].]]
* MasterOfIllusion: Illusion is his favored school. He's good enough to fool an entire group of paladins that he's really a being of light and good.
* NominalHero: He's only ''technically'' on the side of good; very, ''very'' technically. This is why he's only barely inside {{heaven}} at all; he doesn't really care about doing good, he just happens to have done good during his life.
* ObnoxiousSnarker: You can tell from whom his son inherited his sarcastic personality. However, unlike Roy, he's absolutely not subtle about it.
-->'''Eugene:''' Gosh, son, thanks so much for destroying Xykon for me. My spirit will rest easy now.\\
'''Roy:''' Shut up, Dad.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: There are a number of rules involving ghost intervention: summoning, family heirlooms, blood oaths, etc.
* TheOathbreaker: Part of the reason why he's not allowed to pass on is as punishment for ignoring the blood oath he made as soon as it stopped being interesting for him.
* PosthumousCharacter: His introduction is as Roy's SpiritAdvisor.
* PrematurelyBald: In flashbacks to his youth, though his beard may be brown he is already bald.
* ProphecyTwist: "When the goat turns red strikes true." Ever heard of [[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma the comma]]?
* SpiritAdvisor: To Roy in the beginning. He's not tremendously helpful.
* UnfinishedBusiness: That's why he's stuck on FluffyCloudHeaven and can't join the true afterlife. His blood oath is unfufilled.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Initially this to Roy, until the latter realizes that Eugene is too bitter and set in his ways to ever change, and ultimately it's not worth it any more.

!!Julia Greenhilt

->''"I can feel my Coolness Factor dropping just by being in the same room as these dorks."''

->'''Race:''' Human\\
'''Gender:''' Female\\
'''Class:''' Wizard\\
'''Alignment:''' TrueNeutral

Roy's younger sister. A mage student at Warthog's School of Wizardry and Sorcery.
* AlphaBitch: Implied to be one by her attitude and dismal of students. Check out her page quote.
* AttentionWhore: She was upset that she couldn't get Durkon's attention when Durkon was casting a spell to save the Order in Cliffport.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: While she and Roy argue, they do love each other as brother and sister, something that Nale [[EvilCannotComprehendGood finds absolutely alien.]]
* BareYourMidriff: See {{Stripperiffic}}. This is one of the reasons why.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Julia seems to have inherited her personality from her father.
* CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral ("[[DoubleEntendre I go both ways.]]") [[invoked]]
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Her favorite way of getting attention -- but to her dismay it doesn't work on Durkon.
* MulticoloredHair: A green lock; she dyed it in school.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: Durkon gives her a talking-to about respecting herself and her body. In contrast, Roy thinks her state of dress is Nale's fault.
* SpoiledBrat: The only thing Roy told [[spoiler:his dead little brother]] about her was that she was spoiled rotten.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Roy even thought it was a case of GoGoEnslavement, calling it a "faux-punk whore" style.

[[folder:Sara Greenhilt]]
!!Sara Greenhilt

->''"This is the afterlife, Roy, honey. We all appear as our ideal version of ourselves, and I guess I never stopped thinking of myself as the 19-year-old looker who had never even heard the name 'Eugene Greenhilt'."''

->'''Race:''' Ghost (formerly human)\\
'''Gender:''' Female\\
'''Class:''' Unknown\\
'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood

Eugene's wife, mother of Roy, Julia and Eric. Dead years before the start of the story, she meets with Roy during his visit in the afterlife.
* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: In the LawfulGood afterlife, people have an idealized version of their bodies. As a result, despite dying of old age and being wizened in the flashbacks that include her, her afterlife body is that of her 19-year-old self.
* {{Amazingly Embarrassing Parent|s}}: Her comment about grandchildren reminds Roy why he never tells her about anyone he dates.
* EthicalSlut: Sara becomes a total slut after her own death, when she finds out that the LawfulGood paradise is a FreeLoveFuture. [[spoiler:Roy found this really embarrassing when he died and hung out with her while waiting for resurrection. Especially since she was apparently [[OlderThanTheyLook younger than him]] and really hot.]]
* GirlishPigtails: It's part of the "19-year-old looker" thing.
* IWantGrandkids: Encourages Roy to get Celia pregnant so she can hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet... or the woosh-woosh of little wings, as the case may be.
* LatinLover: Roy meets with Enriqué, his mom's current lover, during his visit.
* [[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than She Looks]]: Because of the "idealized heavenly self" thing.
* PosthumousCharacter: Like her husband, she's dead by the start.

'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood

Roy's baby brother, killed by Eugene's negligence.
* AllLowercaseLetters: Due to being a toddler when he died.
* CheerfulChild: He's consistently seen happy. Roy thinks this is why he couldn't be raised; he wasn't bothered by death.
* [[ChekhovsGunman Chekhov's Toddler]]: He can be spotted in an early strip's flashback: [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0113.html "Memories, Like the Edges of My Sword"]]
* ChildrenAreInnocent: He went straight to the True Afterlife because of this trope.
* InfantImmortality: Averted. He's still a toddler in the True Afterlife.

Eugene's father, dead before his grandchildren were born. Roy's childhood hero from the stories told by his mother.
%%* BadassBeard
* BadassGrandpa: Listening to stories about his heroic adventurer grandfather inspired him to become one himself. He hasn't lost his touch in the afterlife.
* CoolOldGuy: Roy has a much better relationship with him than his father because they relate better.
* CoolSword: A spiritual copy of the Greenhilt family sword.
* GiveMeASword: [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0497.html "ROY! Heads up!"]]
* OldMaster: Teaches Roy a sword feat in the afterlife.
* PosthumousCharacter: He was dead before Roy was born.

!Crew of the ''Mechane''

[[folder:The ''Mechane'']]
!!The ''Mechane''

Yes, the ship herself. Despite only having a handful of appearances, she's already made a profound impact on the plot.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Julio Scoundrél definitely knows his great and appropriately self-referential names.
* BoardingParty: Her crew fends off a boarding attempt by a swarm of [[PettingZooPeople Horusfolk]], inhabiting an AncientEgypt-themed setting, during Julio's salad days.
* CoolAirship: She [[{{Expy}} looks exactly like]] the ''Blackjack'' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''.
* DeathFromAbove: The ''Mechane'' is heavily armed, carrying ballistae and a store of firebomb grenades.
* DeusExMachina: Invoked by her name.
* DressedToPlunder: Every single crewmember.
* GenreSavvy: The whole damn crew, thanks to Julio's influence. (Just see Andi's character quote for an example.)
* GlobalAirship: She fulfills this role, first for Elan in Book 3, then [[spoiler:for the whole Order of the Stick at the end of Book 5]].
* SchizoTech: The Mechane is revealed to have electronic components in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0949.html #949]], and yet it's still armed with nothing more sophisticated than a ballista.
* TheSkyIsAnOcean: Indeed, she appears to be a rather standard seagoing vessel with a giant balloon and an engine instead of sails. Bandana is unsure how seaworthy she could be when forced to do a water landing, so the trope is downplayed.
* {{Sky Pirate}}s: Those exact words are used. Julio is the captain of an airship and its sky pirate crew.
* TravellingAtTheSpeedOfPlot: Explicitly [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0937.html stated]] to only ever reach a destination in the nick of time. [[spoiler:[[MundaneMadeAwesome Even for dentist appointments.]]]]
* {{Troperiffic}}: The ''Mechane'' and her crew clearly delight in their tropes. No surprise considering their captain.
* WoodenShipsAndIronMen: Evokes the time period, though instead of cannons, they use ballistae and firebombs.

->'''Race:''' Human\\
'''Gender:''' Male\\
'''Class:''' Dashing Swordsman\\
'''Alignment:''' ChaoticNeutral
%% Alignment confirmed by Word of the Giant.

A swashbuckling adventurer who takes Elan briefly under his wing. Captain and owner of the ''Mechane''.
* BadassLongcoat: His iconic look. He has a full collection of them.
* BadassMustache: A "[[Franchise/{{Zorro}} Diego de la Vega]]"-style mustache, part of the DashingHispanic package.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:He appears to join the fight against Tarquin just when the Order looks completely defeated.]]
* TheBusCameBack: Or in his case, the Airship Came Back -- [[spoiler:[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0930.html in a dramatic unveiling of Elan's plan to turn the tables on his father.]]]]
* CaptainMorganPose: In the panel describing his fame, he proudly takes this pose.
* TheCasanova: He has a son and/or daughter in every port of the continent.
* CelebrityEndorsement: He advertises a brand of healing potion à la Advertising/TheMostInterestingManInTheWorld.
* ChickMagnet: Among certainly many others, both Laurin and Elan's mom had crushes on him.
* DareToBeBadass: [[spoiler:This is how Elan convinces him to help out against Tarquin. "Any hero can defy danger but only a special hero can defy the story itself."]]
* ADayInTheLimelight: He has a short story all for himself in ''Snips, Snails and Dragon Tails'', aiding a DamselInDistress recover a priceless jewel. On an interesting side-note, he rescued said damsel from [[spoiler:Tarquin.]]
* DefiedTrope: He attempts to defy the standard mentor death by staying far away from Elan. [[spoiler:Elan convinces him it'll be cooler if he shows up and defies the trope anyway. Indeed, the only reason he does so is specifically ''for the privilege of defying the trope''.]]
* DashingHispanic: His first name, prestige class and mustache all allude to this trope.
* FamedInStory: He's a world-famous sky pirate, renown ladies' man, and all-around dashing action hero. Just hearing the name of his airship is enough for Elan to identify him (no surprise as he's a bard, plus his mom is probably Julio's biggest fan).
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the initial duel between Tarquin and Elan, the former offhandedly mentions that he's found a way to counter such [[YouFightLikeACow pun-fighting techniques.]] Guess who shows up near the tail-end of the Empire of Blood arc?
* GenreSavvy: UpToEleven (being ''even more savvy than Tarquin at his best''). He is well aware of the values of {{training montage}}s, of iconic heroic images (longcoat, mustache, etc.), and especially of the fate that awaits the MentorArchetype.
* GentlemanThief: Combines this with TheCasanova to great effect, as his character quote attests.
* GoodCounterpart: [[spoiler:To Tarquin.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Elan:''' [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0930.html I thought what we needed to balance]] an '''evil''' father figure -- was a '''good''' father figure!]]
* GoodHurtsEvil: Or Chaos Hurts Lawfulness in the present case; Julio carries a Chaos Sabre, which [[spoiler:gives Tarquin a painful wound.]]
* HamToHamCombat: Part of the Dashing Swordsman class -- he teaches the rudiments to Elan.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Literally. There's a whole other story (in Stick Figure HD) about him in ''Snips, Snails and Dragon Tails''. Also, there's a forthcoming Julio Scoundrél PDF that will invoke this.
* ImprovisedTraining: He set up a fake training montage for Elan, complete with backgrounds to indicate a time lapse.
* InformedAttractiveness: He held the title of "Sexiest Man Alive" for a time, yet like Elan (and everyone else, for that matter), he's a stick figure.
* InSeriesNickname: The "Julioteers" for Julio's female fans.
* IShallTauntYou: To [[spoiler:Tarquin]], his old nemesis.
-->'''Julio:''' I think that's half your problem, T -- you always think everything that happens is about '''you'''!
* JustInTime: The only way he arrives for anything ([[MundaneMadeAwesome including dentist appointments]]).
* LoveableRogue: The poster boy for the loveable rogue in the ''[=OotS=]'' universe. Literally -- he has a poster.
* MagicCarpet: He owns a blue one, and even uses it in fights for mobility. [[spoiler:He apparently stole it from Tarquin, who gouges it in half.]]
* MagicWand: Always carries a wand of ''Sending'' in his coat pocket.
* {{Mentor|s}}: For Elan -- only during a few days, but this has considerable influence on Elan's CharacterDevelopment.
* MentorOccupationalHazard: He's GenreSavvy enough to try to [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0392.html avoid this]]. [[spoiler:Though he can still be convinced to help out, as shown in episode #930. True to form, he defies it spectacularly in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0933.html #933]].]]
-->'''Julio:''' Well, as an older mentor figure, the most likely scenario is that I'd return only to be randomly killed by an enemy of yours so that [[PietaPlagiarism you can cradle my dying body]] while swearing revenge -- so don't take it personally if I say that I sincerely hope we never cross paths again.
* TheObiWan: His role in the story, though as a character he's basically Han.
* PassingTheTorch: Julio decides to hit the road and visit the Outer Planes, but not before giving his Chaos Sabre and control of the Mechane to Elan for the last leg of the Order's journey. This is [[PlayedForLaughs hilariously done]] since the letter that he left to Elan has him doing the voice-over... with him standing right beside Elan.
-->'''Elan:''' Oh man! [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye I can't believe he left without saying goodbye]]! There's so much I wanted to tell him!\\
'''Haley:''' Well, you could just turn around. He's standing right behind you doing the voice-over through a can.\\
'''Elan:''' [[ContractualGenreBlindness Farewell, brave captain! I know not when we shall see your like again!]]\\
'''Julio:''' "PS: Actually, maybe I better hit the head before I go."
* PrestigeClass: Dashing Swordman. It compensates his average Strength and Dexterity scores by making Charisma his primary fighting attribute.
* PutOnABus: Deliberately, see above.
* RoyalRapier: The weapon of choice of the Dashing Swordman. [[spoiler:On his return in Book 5, he switched to a Chaos Sabre, which is close enough.]]
* RuleOfDrama: A lot of the things he does are because they will make for a better story. When Elan finds out that [[spoiler:Julio could have given Elan a Sending wand to warn Haley that Nale was impersonating him]] but didn't because it would make for a better story, he has mixed feelings about it. After meeting a villain who also follows the rule of drama, Elan thinks that good stories aren't worth hurting people over.
* SilverFox: He now has grey hair, unlike on the cover of ''Townspeople Weekly'' describing him as the "Sexiest Man Alive", but it's doubtful he's considered any less attractive.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Although he sticks to the BadassLongcoat look and V-neck shirt, he has lots of costumes, changing twice during Elan's 20-minute-long TrainingMontage. [[spoiler:He does it on his return too, having changed clothes between receiving the Sending and confronting Tarquin, and again afterward.]]
-->'''Julio:''' Now if you'll excuse me, I'm in desperate need of a wardrobe change.
* AYearAndADay: In the Julio comic from ''Snips, Snails and Dragon Tails'', the Mummy Queen informs him that her curse holds him for a hundred years and a day.
* WeMeetAgain: [[spoiler:"General Tarquin, we meet again!"]]


->''"You kiddin'? I've been workin' toward bein' captain my whole life!!"''

->'''Race:''' Human\\
'''Gender:''' Female\\
'''Class:''' Rogue\\
'''Alignment:''' Unknown (probably ChaoticNeutral)

Pilot and acting captain of Julio Scoundrél's CoolAirship ''Mechane''.
* AcePilot: Looks that way. She succeeded her father on this post. Her efforts in pitching and rolling the ship [[spoiler:contribute in keeping Tarquin from climbing back onboard]].
* TheCaptain: Effectively, since Julio's departure from the ''Mechane''.
* CoolBigSis: Haley tries being this to Bandana, but Bandana proves to be made of sterner stuff than Haley believed, and she doesn't need any special help. She's still grateful for the thought, though.
* AFatherToHisMen: In this case, A Mother to Her Men -- after Julio's departure, when she takes over as acting Captain, it's clear she cares a lot about the crew.
-->'''Haley:''' (''after shooting the ''Mechane''[='s=] control console with frost arrows'') ...I didn't just make that worse, did I?\\
'''Bandana:''' Worry 'bout it when all my people are safe.
* {{Foil}}: To Haley herself. Haley offers to help Bandana get acclimated to command, based on her experience as a leader in the Azure City Resistance. Turns out, however, that Bandana's been planning for command her whole life, and doesn't suffer the usual Rogue hangups about being in a position of authority.
* GenerationXerox: Followed in the footsteps of her father, Mr. Secundus, Julio's previous AcePilot and NumberTwo.
* GenreSavvy: Immediately realizes that, despite it being her ship, the Order, and more specifically Elan, is in charge.
* {{Determinator}}: Knew from the time she was a girl that she wanted to command her own ship, despite her father being an enlisted member of Julio's crew. She views captaining the ''Mechane'' as merely a jumping off point to getting her own ship.
* JurisdictionFriction: Sensibly avoided when the Order boards the ''Mechane''.
* NervesOfSteel: Keeps her cool (and remains an effective officer) under pressure, barely flinching when both the ''Mechane''[='s=] engines fail and things start exploding.
* NiceGuy: She's very happy to see Elan safe.
* NumberTwo: To Julio.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: It's a safe bet that "Bandana" isn't her real name. Considering her father was Mr. Secundus from ''Snips, Snails, and Dragon Tails'', it's probable her last name is also [[MeaningfulName Secundus]].
* PirateGirl: Considering the {{Troperiffic}} nature of the ''Mechane'' and her crew (Bandana included), she's a very mild example.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Her and Elan's initial reaction indicates that they met when Julio initially trained Elan to be a Dashing Swordsman, but she's never actually appeared before [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0933.html page #933]].
* SelfMadeWoman. She grew up on the ''Mechane'', watching her parents be ordered around by Julio and his officers, and resolved that she'd give the orders one day. Now she can, as acting captain and she plans to get her own ship, in good time.
* StraightGay: She mentions an ex-girlfriend when loaning Haley some of said ex's armor. [[WordOfGod Word of the Giant]] confirms that she is gay rather than bisexual.

Crewwoman and mechanic aboard the ''Mechane''
* TheEngineer: Probably one of Felix's subordinates.
* GadgeteerGenius: Cannibalizes the ''Mechane'''s starboard engine to repair her port engine, getting her to half speed where she had been dead in the air and losing altitude.
* GenreSavvy: She's the one to remind the crew about Julio's orders concerning [=PCs'=] duels. And like Belkar, she thinks it's a bad idea to have [[spoiler:Vampire Durkon]] walking around. [[spoiler:And she's right.]]
* PeekABangs: This hairstyle makes her easily recognizable amongst the crew.
* SuddenNameChange: Andi was named Sally at first, but The Giant retconned her name and [[https://twitter.com/RichBurlew/status/506304691412955137 jokingly feigned ignorance about the change.]]
* WrenchWench: Bandana has Roy take over holding down a rope so she can help Felix repair the engines.

Elan and Nale's ChaoticGood mother, a tavern waitress who reared him to be trustworthy and honest. She used to be married to Elan's father, before he had an entire tavern killed because someone pinched her rear.
* TheCameo: She has appeared in only two flashback panels in the entire comic, [[spoiler:aside from the LotusEaterMachine.]]
* ComplexityAddiction: A trait Nale inherited from her, as you can probably surmise by the quote. Plus, she's in the current page image.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Like Elan. But not like [[BlondeGuysAreEvil Nale]].
* NoNameGiven: To the point that in [[spoiler:the LotusEaterMachine]], the priest refers to her as "Elan's mother".

'''Class:''' Sorcerer\\
'''Alignment:''' LawfulGood

Celia is a [[WingedHumanoid sylph]] and [[BunnyEarsLawyer lawyer]] from the Elemental Plane of Air. She's also Roy's girlfriend.
* ActualPacifist: Much to Haley and Belkar's frustration. Though she has been known to let loose the occasional lightning bolt in anger. She also doesn't mind using violence against non-living things like golems, though her utility in that is hampered by the fact that golems are immune to most spells and some, like flesh golems, get buffs from lightning.
* BareYourMidriff: Her original Sigil Guardian costume.
* BatmanGambit: Celia tricks Hank and other members of the Thieves Guild by playing on their greed. Bonus points in the fact that they know she could be tricking them, but the prospect of getting gold and magical items is too good to pass up in tough economic times.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Ditzy to say the least, but still a good lawyer (in-training).
* DamselInDistress: {{Lampshaded}} by Roy.
-->'''Roy:''' Ah, there's my damsel. In distress. As is quickly becoming standard.
* DamselOutOfDistress: When cornered and grabbed in Blind Pete's house, she rescues not only herself but her party members by [[spoiler:renegotiating Haley's contract with the Rogue's Guild.]]
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: She and Roy [[DiscussedTrope talk about the root cause of her conflicts with insiders like Haley.]] Outsiders can't be revived nor do they have an afterlife, so they have different ideas about death than those that can come BackFromTheDead every day of the week given sufficient resources.
* FairySexy: Roy thought so.
* FishOutOfWater: She's not familiar with how the Prime Material Plane or its inhabitants operate.
* {{Flight}}: Normal for a sylph, but she's a surprisingly strong flyer too, able to carry Roy with her.
* GeniusDitz: She ''is'' a highly competent lawyer (even though she's still in law school!).
* GoodCounterpart: For Sabine in the Linear Guild; both are winged outsiders with supernatural powers, and both are in a relationship with the leaders of their respective parties.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: Translucent dragonfly wings, both good and fey.
* GranolaGirl: She's a vegetarian on top of being a pacifist.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Serves as the caster for the Haley/Belkar/[[spoiler:Roy's Corpse]] group in the "Don't Split the Party" arc.
* HelloAttorney: From Roy's point of view.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: She's incredibly naïve and liable to trust people who really don't deserve to be trusted.
* InterspeciesRomance: Her boyfriend is a human.
* IThoughtEveryoneCouldDoThat: She finds it very strange that humans cannot [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0529.html shoot lightning from their fingers]] or [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0531.html sense magic fields with their teeth]].
* MeaningfulName: Suitably for an air elemental, her name means "heavenly" in Latin.
* MonsterFunFacts: Averted. She does ''not'' tell the Order about her species because she thinks that all these facts would be common knowledge even for humans. Conversely, she doesn't know much about humans, either.
* MysticalWhiteHair: Sign of her connection to the Elemental Plane of Air and her sorcerous powers over air and lightning.
* PointyEars: Sylphs share this trait with elves.
* PutOnABus: Put on Another Plane of Existence; that ''is'' where she lives, after all.
* SexyBacklessOutfit: Her party dress in Azure City.
* ShockAndAwe: Although she doesn't like to use it offensively, lightning is a natural power of hers.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Which puts her at odds with the adventurers. Although she has no problem cheering Haley on as she kills people.
* TokenGoodTeammate: A pacifist adventuring with Haley (who is pragmatic about killing) and Belkar (who relishes it).
%% Do not remove Celia from this trope; Token Good Teammate isn't about whether or not most of the party is good; it's about one member having HIGHER STANDARDS than the rest. Which fits perfectly with Celia's pacifism against adventurer values.
* TooDumbToLive: {{Justified|Trope}} by her outsider status, she's completely unaware of how the Prime Material Plane functions.
%% WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: Trope not applying, do not add it back.
* WingedHumanoid: Sylphs have two pairs of dragonfly-like wings and an elfin body. Although Celia is medium-sized, unlike what's described in the ''D&D'' rules (no doubt to ease the romance with Roy).

[[folder:The Oracle]]
!!The Oracle

->''"Geez, I can peer into the murky depths of the future, and yet I always seem to get interrupted during bath time."''

->'''Race:''' Kobold\\
'''Gender:''' Male\\
'''Class:''' Expert\\
'''Alignment:''' TrueNeutral
%% Alignment confirmed by Word of the Giant.

Tiamat's Oracle of the Sunken Valley is a snarky kobold with a dislike for Belkar specifically and everyone in general.
* BackFromTheDead: It takes him all of maybe three minutes; being an oracle, he sets up his resurrections in advance, down to the minute of death.
* CrazyPrepared: Seeing the future allows him to always have the magic item he needs on hand.
* CallForward: With his precognitive powers and tendency to ramble, he often makes references to events that haven't happened yet. Take this exchange with Eugene Greenhilt in ''Recap/StartOfDarkness'';
-->'''Oracle:''' Hey, it's Film/GhostDad!\\
'''Eugene:''' Huh?\\
'''Oracle:''' Eh, it'll be funny later. Funnier than the Cosby movie, at least.
* DeadpanSnarker: At each and every customer, or at least the ones he doesn't respect. For instance, when Roy gives his overly-specific question, he responds, "you've outsmarted yourself at least."
* DeathIsCheap: But painful.
-->'''Oracle:''' I think the halfling ''dulls his blades'' just to make it hurt more.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[invoked]] Invoked by the Oracle during his Fourth Wall Aside to "Oracle fans".
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Just "Oracle" or "the Oracle of Sunken Valley".
* ExactWords: He phrases his prophecies like this sometimes.
* FantasticRacism: "You mammals are disgusting..."
* ForeseeingMyDeath: Naturally, due to his abilities, and he has hired a wizard and a cleric to teleport to his location and provide him with a ''raise dead'' or ''resurrection'' spell at very specific times. If he sees himself dying by violence, he'll also try to find some way to screw with his murderer, [[spoiler:such as tricking Belkar into activating his Mark of Justice]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: That's his job, being an oracle and all. He's foreshadowed very important happenstances, like Roy's and Elan's "family reunions" (Nale kidnapping Julia in Cliffport) and, quite early, even [[spoiler:Belkar's incoming demise]].
* FourthWallObserver: "Fourth Wall Aside" demonstrates that his oracle vision can see the fourth wall in addition to the future.
* HighAltitudeInterrogation: He was dangled out a window by Roy and Durkon, as seen in a flashback, before conceding them a third question.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Though at first he pretended not to, in order to snub [[spoiler:Roy's ghost]].
* {{Jerkass}}: Downplayed. Given proper respect, or maybe as a favor to fellow reptiles or followers of Tiamat, he is quite genial. The Order tends to be abusive to him, which results in him treating them poorly.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: His interactions can be nearly kindly even with the Order; he all but told Roy to [[AreYouSureYouWantToDoThat rephrase an ill-considered question.]] Roy continued to ignore the Oracle's warning out of hand which cost the Order and Azure City dearly.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Visitors to the Sunken Valley remember his prophecies, but nothing else about their visit due to a charm, including the Oracle's true identity. This spell nearly keeps the Order from returning to Azure City to defend it from Xykon's attack, but it also keeps Belkar from getting kicked out of the Order and left to die from his curse after he kills the Oracle.
* LizardFolk: He's a kobold.
* MathematiciansAnswer:
** The Oracle's answers can be extremely literal. He gives one to Belkar, to the halfing's disgust, and gave one to Roy during his first visit.
--->'''Oracle:''' Hey, "in his throne room," was a perfectly legitimate answer to the question "Where is Xykon?"
** Thanks to that incident, Roy is GenreSavvy enough to have a specifically-worded question prepared, to prevent the Oracle from doing this during his second visit. Unfortunately, Roy's question is ''so'' specifically-worded that he manages to outsmart himself. The Oracle ''did'' try to warn him.
* MediumAwareness: Higher than any other characters in the comic, which is saying something. In fact, he says he understands Haley while she was dealing with a language affliction only because he ''reads the graphic novels'' (which haven't been printed at that point) and saw the translations there.
* MetaphoricallyTrue: His argument for Belkar's prophecy fulfilled on their second visit. [[TemptingFate It becomes literally true immediately after, as one of the people Belkar asked if he'd end up killing was the Oracle himself.]]
* {{Omniglot}}: A special case. He could tell what Haley was saying despite the CypherLanguage because he can look into the future [[NoFourthWall when the translations are included in the book]]. He can also understand Blackwing's caws.
* NonMammalMammaries: Specifically mentions getting to second base with another kobold, a fellow reptile. Lampshaded by Vaarsuvius the first time.
* PowerFloats: During the oracular trance.
* {{Revenge}}: The town of [=LickMyOrangeBallsHalfling=]. Founded: Last week. Population: Just Enough.
-->[[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments "No, seriously, give them a good once-over!"]]
* RuleOfFunny: Invoked, as usual. The Oracle admits he considered calling the aforementioned kobold town [=ShouldHaveCheckedAMap=] [[ToiletHumor but decided to go blue instead.]]
* {{Seer|s}}: Probably the most well-known and reputed oracle in the ''[=OotS=]'' world (although not many people know he's a kobold).
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: It happens, such as with Belkar. [[spoiler: He predicts that Belkar will kill him and then ticks him off to the point that he does, and activates the Mark of Justice.]]
* SpeechBubbles: His normal (white) speech bubbles turn green when entering the trance and doing a prediction; incidentally this answer is all the petitioner will remember.
* YourMom: The type of insults he trades with [[spoiler:Roy's ghost]].

->'''Race:''' Imp\\
'''Gender:''' Male\\
'''Class:''' Sorcerer\\
'''Alignment:''' LawfulEvil

An imp, the IFCC's latest employee and former minion of Kubota (and an unknown devil).
* AffablyEvil: A given, considering his line of work is butt-kissing and temptation.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Being a go-getter is the reason the IFCC hired him.
* CharmPerson: He can charm dozens of monsters to attack good-aligned characters.
* DealWithTheDevil:
** Tries to make a simple one with V -- he would give the elf tips on evil spell components in exchange for helping him find an evil artifact. V's response is "Disintegrate!" [[spoiler:However, he's the link to V's actual deal.]]
** He tries another one on Blackwing, but instead tips his hand and reveals crucial information. The familiar notes that he kinda sucks at the temptation thing.
* DirtyCoward: Qarr will ''not'' stay around if confronted by anything stronger than him unless he has powerful help. [[spoiler:Despite being his familiar, he leaves Zz'dtri to die at Vampire!Durkon's hands without a second thought.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: [[spoiler:As Zz'dtri's familiar. He's only serving Zz'dtri so he can attempt to lead V further astray.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: If he was a decent advisor to Kubota, Qarr has much less success in tempting the heroic types. He nearly gets disintegrated by Vaarsuvius for his effort, and later, when attempting to bargain with Blackwing, all he manages to do is leak out vital information to the bird.
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:The literal devil to Blackwing's "[[TheConscience good angel]]".]]
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: He finds the revelation of [[spoiler:the full effect of the Familicide spell]] to be ''uproariously funny''. [[spoiler:Then again, he knows it was Vaarsuvius who did the Familicide, and is the only one aside from V and the IFCC to understand the true {{Irony}}.]]
* {{Flight}}: With bat-like wings. In fact, it's quite rare to see him on the ground.
* {{Familiar}}: [[spoiler:To [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0790.html Zz'dtri]].]]
* HornedHumanoid: Being an imp.
* TheImp: Since imps are embodiments of LawfulEvil, [[InNameOnly the trope does not apply]].
* ProfessionalButtKisser: He's small, kinda weak, around the right size to punt into a wall, and as a fiend lives in a world where the strong have all the power. He states that this is how his kind gets around.
* SarcasmBlind: He has some trouble understanding Vaarsuvius' heavy sarcasm during their exchange.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler:When Durkon reveals that his newly evil alignment ''doesn't'' affect his loyalties (only making him more ruthless) and he goes after Zz'dtri, Qarr says he's out and wishes the drow good luck.]]
* {{Telepathy}}: He used this to rely Kubota's orders. He can also sense "feelings" in people while relying them too.
* VillainTeleportation: He uses it liberally during his fight with Blackwing, noting that it's useless trying to outrun him.
* TheWatson: Similar to Jirix, the author's commentary implies he was kept on the cast so the archfiends could have someone they could explain their plans to.
* WingedHumanoid: For a given value of "humanoid"; his tail and shape make him rather look a bit monkey-like.

A team of elves sent to help liberate Azure City from the hobgoblins.
%%* [[AntiHero Anti-Heroes]]
* AttackAttackAttack: [[spoiler:The Commander attempts to assault Redcloak due to an attempted RoaringRampageOfRevenge for his fallen comrades, despite being completely outnumbered and outmatched. This ends quite poorly, as you might expect.]]
* {{Badass}}: They show a team of highly trained, skilled adventurers.
%%* CowboyCop: The commander
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:The aforementioned deaths of the Commander and Lieutenant. This might have been the case for the rest of the team as well.]]
* FantasticRacism: As far as the commander is concerned, the only good goblins are dead goblins.
* {{Flat Character}}s: Granted, they're supporting cast members and get less focus, but there are plenty of supporting cast characters with more focus than them. [[spoiler:It's a moot point since they're dead.]]
* KickTheDog: The commander gives a hobgoblin prisoner false hope before throwing him off the ramparts of the prison, instead of just explaining that it was too big a risk and [[ShootTheDog offing him quickly]]. Later, Redcloak is told that, besides the prison guards, casualties include a pair of innocent hobgoblin bystanders who were shot in the back, presumably [[LeaveNoWitnesses because they saw the elves escaping]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:Considering his [[FantasticRacism attitude towards goblins]] and that his KickTheDog moment was his only real scene before his death, the murder of the Commander by Redcloak can easily be seen as this. The Giant admitted in the book commentary that he wrote the Commander specifically so Redcloak could use Implosion on someone that wouldn't be terribly missed.]]
* MeaningfulName: The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peregrine_Falcon Peregrine falcon]] is the fastest hunting bird on Earth, swooping on its preys before they're even aware it's here. The first time we see Team Peregrine, they teleport in the midst of a hobgoblin patrol and kill them all in one round. Very fitting.
* MoralMyopia: Commander "The Only Good Goblin Is a ''Dead'' Goblin" screams that he'll avenge every elf slain by Redcloak. Redcloak, for his part, doesn't comment on the irony of all the hobgoblins he avenges [[spoiler:by making the commander implode.]]
* NoNameGiven: None of them are given monickers beyond their rank in the team.
* OurElvesAreBetter: They are all elves. They are all awesome (when not being jerks, but again, elves).
* PointyEars: Again, elves.
* RevengeBeforeReason: [[spoiler:The Commander when he returns to the Resistance HQ only to see half of his team slaughtered by Redcloak]].
* ShootTheDog: The Azurites are unwilling to kill hapless civilians in their fights. Team Peregrine is not.
* TotalPartyKill: [[spoiler:The wizard and cleric are killed off-panel by horned devils, and the Commander and Lieutenant are imploded by Redcloak.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: One of the Azure City Resistance members is quite disturbed by the commander's ruthlessness. [[CantArgueWithElves Another finds it awesome.]]

Messrs. Jones and Rodriguez -- attorneys at law. Two lawyers who enforce copyright for Creator/WizardsOfTheCoast, they also sometimes take court cases.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Phil Rodriguez is about as cuckoo as Elan, as seen from [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0032.html his very first appearance]].

Durkon's mother. Briefly mentioned by her son early in the comic, she appears in a flashback much later. She may have been widowed even then, since she mentions his father in the past tense.
* AnArmAndALeg: She is missing her right arm.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In her first comic, she saves another dwarf [[{{Pun}} single-handedly]], then brushes it off as nothing and makes Durkon his favorite dinner.
* FullNameUltimatum: Administers one to Durkon.
* GoodParents: All of Durkon's memories of her are happy ones. She teaches him how to be a proper adult dwarf, and when he makes mistakes, she treats them as learning experiences instead of failures. It's easy to see how he grew up to be such a heroic character.
* HandicappedBadass: She may have only one arm, but she's the first to react when a fellow dwarf is in danger.
* HonorBeforeReason: Durkon cited her as teaching him to suppress emotions. This lead to some fannish speculations that she meant him to be TheStoic, but later flashbacks makes it clear she had no objections to emotions that do not interfere with duty.
* RetiredBadass: She mentions a pension at one point, so she might be a former soldier. It would explain why she only has one arm.
* TakeMyHand: She prevents a fellow dwarf from falling to his death by holding him with her sole hand long enough for the guards to help her.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: [[invoked]] In the opinion of a negative energy being, to be sure.
* ThinkNothingOfIt: After the rescue -- nothing anyone else wouldn't've done.
* ThroughHisStomach: A grilled cheese sandwich, just as Durkon asked for. She entertains her friends this way, with dinner parties every other Wednesday. Though she claims that before she had Durkon, she was a LethalChef.
* TrueCompanions: Five friends of hers, whom she has as guests every party.
