     Minor Characters 

Wilfred Tipton

London's often unseen father and manager of Tipton Industries. He is incredibly rich (so much that his allowance to London is ridiculous.) and is involved in many criminal activities.

  • Corrupt Corporate Executive
  • Characterization Marches On: Remember how he seems to care about London's well being. In his final and first real appearance appearance, London has to remind him of who she is. Plus his criminal activities aren't pointed out until this time too with his most corrupt behavior before then is endangering some wales with his cruise ship. His final appearance talks of him embezzling money and on top of that wants to turn the Picket farm into a plastic bag factory.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Is usually concealed by a wall of body guards and isn't properly seen until near the end of On Deck.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!
  • Serial Spouse: Has been married anywhere between eight and fifteen times. And each of them get shorter and shorter as London is the child of wife number 3 though The earlier show suggests she's wife number 1. At the start of the show he's on or between wife 4. he seems to go through at least a half dozen between the two shows.

Ilsa Schicklgrubermeiger

  • All Germans Are Nazis: She's German, and often associated with Nazi jokes (she has a killer wiener dog named Blitzkrieg, for one thing).
  • Beauty Mark: Has a massive mole on her face that she insists is one of these. Nobody agrees.
  • Big Bad: Often appeared as an antagonist.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Heavy on the "ineffectual", light on the "sympathetic".
  • Large Ham
  • Laughably Evil
  • Overly Long Name: Especially after getting married.
    Ilsa: I have gotten married.
    Ilsa: Ja. My married name is Ilsa Schicklgrubermeiger-von Helsinger Kepelugerhoffer.
  • Smug Snake: Too confidant in her nasty actions to actually succeed.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm: During her time as the manager of the Tipton, to the point that even London hated her.
  • You Monster!: Played for laughs in her second appearance, where she's equated to a literal monster.
    Moseby: There is no such thing as monsters!
    Ilsa walks in the door.
    Moesby, Carey and the boys: AHHHHH!!!
    Ilsa: I'm back.
