The Voynich Hotel attracts all sorts of interesting characters. The locals are no less interesting.



The life and blood of our dear establishment! Without them, there wouldn't be a hotel in the first place! While I can't disclose ALL of their personal details, I can indulge you in some gossip and maybe a little hearsay...

!! 805: Kuzuki Taizou

One of our more recent guests! He paid for an extended stay, and has so far been making himself quite the face around the island, however unintentionally.

* BeatStillMyHeart: Open-heart surgeon she is not, but Elena's cuddling of Taizou's cardiac muscle saved his life.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Kuzuki had his [[spoiler:eye put out and fingers cut off by some Yakuza who came to call]]. Miss Elena was [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge most displeased]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: There are some rumours that Mr. Kuzuki had quite the life in Japan--and not exactly a legal one.
* OfficialCouple: Elena certainly seems to dote on him quite a bit.
* MayDecemberRomance: Miss Elena has taken quite the shine to him.
* TattooedCrook: As a result of his shady past with the Yakuza.

!! 804: Kurosawa

A rather pleasant man, though rumor has it he's actually the world's #1 assassin.
* BiTheWay: Is quick to remind potential suitors he's gay, [[spoiler: but fell in love with Stark and is implied to have had relations with Mamiya in the past.]]
* BackFromTheDead: His ghost tries to dissuade Mamiya from targeting Taizou, but she doesn't listen.
* BuryYourGays: [[spoiler: He disappeared shortly after going for coffee at Snark's cafe. A pity, because he was going to confess to her too.]]
* HitmanWithAHeart: Kurosawa may be the world's #1 assassin, but he's a genuinely good guy as long as you don't have a bounty on you.

!! 402: Haraki

A manga artist.

* StarvingArtist: He always seems to be fretting over deadlines and the like, but I've never really seen him actually drawing till the last minute--or past it.
* ATrueStoryInMyUniverse: In the epilogue, he has written and published a manga based on the events comprising the series, titled ''The Voynich Hotel''.

!! 303: Tamara, Misha, and Karie

A rather interesting trio. They skipped housekeeping and room service, for some reason.

* BecomingTheMask: A few rumours surrounding Karie say she's actually an undercover agent for the FDA to bust a drug operation, but as the police have yet to darken our doorstep, assume them to be just that: rumours.
* OnlyMostlyDead: Tamara, despite having her head blown open by Kurosawa, revives just enough to demand Karie pay her back for the pilfered drugs before dying for real.

!! VIP: The [[spoiler:Assassin]] Sisters
A pair of white-haired black-eyed sisters who showed up recently.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: They don't possess noticeable irises ''or'' sclera.
* FrankensteinsMonster: Fortunately Beluna took pity on the younger sister [[spoiler:after she ran afoul of Snark and stitched her back together.]]
* GenkiGirl: The younger sister, who has a passion for the parasite Gilty. (The cat is its host.)
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: The hotel's new decoration just happens to look ''exactly'' like the severed head of the eldest sister.
* OffWithHerHead: Mamiya runs afoul of Elena when she targets Taizou.
* RevengeBeforeReason:The younger sister was overheard vowing to avenge her older sister's death.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: They have snow-white hair [[spoiler: and are rumoured to be high-ranking assassins]].


A hotel is only as good as its employees--and what the Voynich lacks in quantity, we have in quality.

!! Elena [[spoiler:AKA Lachrymarum, the Mother of Tears]]

One of our two maids. Very cheerful and upbeat, together with Beluna, she keeps the Voynich spotless and still has plenty of energy leftover for her own pursuits!

* ACupAngst: Please do not remark on her lack of cleavage.
* ActionGirl: Despite her short stature, Elena is quite active.
* TheBeastmaster: The local man-eating tigers seem to be remarkably obedient around her.
* CurbStompBattle: Be you human or demon, lay so much as a dirty look in Kuzuki's direction, and she'll make your stay abrupt and unpleasant.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: I hear she can get rather unpleasant if provoked.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: When poor Elena returned home from visiting her mother, [[spoiler:the sight of Taizo being mutilated by the Yakuza caused this reaction]].
* EyepatchOfPower: She had an eyepatch for a time, when her glass eye was accidentally destroyed.
* GlassEye: She has one. It's a slightly different colour than the other as [[spoiler:Taizo made a slight mistake at the shop.]]
* GenkiGirl: It's rather hard to find people as upbeat and cheery as her.
* KungFuWizard: Elena is ''very'' [[PintSizedPowerhouse strong for her build and stature]], and if the rumours about her are true is a powerful witch.
* MoeGreenSpecial: She lost her eye way, ''way'' back [[spoiler:when the colonials shot her with an arrow.]]
* MysticalPregnancy: Elena was heard gushing that she might be pregnant after Kuzuki spent the night in her room, but nothing's come of it since.
* PowerTattoo: Has tribal tattoos all over her body, though her maid uniform covers them up.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Some say she is really Lachrymarum of the Three Mothers.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: Elena possesses a number of masks crafted from animal skulls and one of her hobbies is wearing bones.
* TranquilFury: Elena was unable to protect poor Taizou from [[spoiler:the repercussions of his past. She ''was'' able to [[LudicrousGibs do some redecorating]], and was surprisingly calm about it.]]
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Attention all yakuza, assassins, demons, etc.: You mess with Kuzuki, [[spoiler:you wind up with your severed head impaled on the hotel roof or used to repaint the room.]]

!! Beluna

The second of our housekeeping duo. Together with Elena, they keep our dear hotel spotless. She's also quite handy if you need anything lifted--or destroyed.

* EmotionlessGirl: It's hard to tell how she's feeling at any given moment, really.
* FrankensteinsMonster: The numerous scars all around her body give out this sort of vibe. [[spoiler:Appropriate, considering she is one.]]
* ReplacementGoldfish: [[spoiler:Constructed by Lachrymarum as a (unintentional) simulacrum of Suspiriorum, the Mother of Sighs.]]
* WhenSheSmiles: She's very pretty, actually.

!! Amelia

Our chef.

* TheEeyore: Poor girl's led a hard life. Lost her parents to a landmine, suffered from an eating disorder till the owner snapped her out of it, and her job isn't exactly the easiest (or safest) out there.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Now why would one of our employees try to poison a guest as part of her own suicide attempt? [[BlatantLies How ridiculous.]]
* SuicideAsComedy: Alas, the poor girl thinks she's better off dead than alive.

!! Umeda Kandre

Our owner, a retired luchador. Quite the man about town, famous for his career and now for his hotel.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He may not look like much, but rumor has it that he punched out ''the'' Chuck Norris himself.
* MaskedLuchador: Though he's now retired, he still wears his masks on a daily basis. It's quite the sight to see, really.
* NiceGuy: He makes it a point to regularly visit and assist orphans from the war.



While the Voynich most definitely does not employ nor house beings of the supernatural kind, there ''have'' been numerous rumours and "sightings" going around.

!! The Yakuza Ghosts

A pair of yakuza killed by Kurosawa. Not much is known about them, though one had quite the interest in strange stories, apparently.

* ThoseTwoGuys: There really isn't anything TOO remarkable about them... except that one is a dead ringer for [[Manga/DragonBallZ Vegeta]].

!! Mercelo

The namesake of that new drug. They say she still lives in the room she overdosed in.

* BoyMeetsGhoul: As if the idea of ghosts wasn't silly enough, some have taken to saying she's actually taken a shine to Mr. Haraki.



The island is home to all sorts of interesting personalities, too.

!! Zepis

The legendary second-rate boiler engineer! He can fix anything, really, but let's just say his head is a little beyond repair these days...

* ArtificialLimbs: With thanks to the war. Not entirely a bad thing; his leg acted as a ground and saved him from that one time he got struck by lightning seven times in a row. And it was such a fine day, too...

!! Snark

Alice's older sister. Owner of a local restaurant, and DAMN fine chef. One wonder how she does it with two prosthetic arms...

* ApologeticAttacker: Well, she ''did'' [[spoiler: slice Mamiya's little sister in pieces]], but she did warn her opponent about attacking her and was unhappy about attacking [[spoiler:a child]]...
* ArtificialLimbs: Lost both of her arms in the war. She's been doing amazingly well at her job without them, though. Just goes to show what a lot of passion and some fancy prosthetics can do.
* BuxomIsBetter: Certainly subscribes to this belief, since she got herself a bust enhancement.
* CoolBigSis: For all [[LovableSexManiac her]] [[SerialKiller flaws]], she truly loves her sister.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:There's really no shortage of rumours on where she got those skills of hers.]]
* HiddenInPlainSight: Is the proprietor of a popular cafe ''and'' [[spoiler:a wanted serial killer whose name is known to the police.]] How she does it no-one knows.
* LovableSexManiac: Rumour has it Snark ''really'' likes to get it on with hot guys.
* MundaneUtility: Her prosthetics really come in "[[IncrediblyLamePun handy]]" for all sorts of things.
* OutWithABang: [[spoiler:Said to her favourite way of expressing her "love".]]
* SerialKiller: Some say she's not altogether well in the head, but don't tell Alice.
* WolverineClaws: [[spoiler:The true form of her "Demon's Claw +2" prosthetics.]]

!! Officer Olga

One of our fine law enforcers. Currently in charge of the "Snark" serial killer case, alongside her partner, Andyroid.

* CovertPervert: The lines on her palm indicate that her sex drive is distressingly insatiable. Assuming you trust [[AIIsACrapshoot Andyroid]], anyway.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: She's quite responsible and mature compared to... well... pretty much most of the island.

!! Andyroid

The cutting-edge of crime fighting technology: a [[Series/RobotDetective robot detective]]! He hasn't really solved anything yet, but I'm sure he will eventually! It's not as if he's a giant waste of money and research, right?

* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler:Rumour is that a secret facility is producing killer robots. Is this guy a defective model? Who knows?]]
* BumblingSidekick: Officer Olga doesn't seem to like having him around. (I can't say I blame her...)
* {{Expy}}: Visually is one of [[Series/RobotDetective Robot Keiji K]]
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: According to the droid himself, they really went out of their way to make him as human as possible. I'd say they succeeded--a little too well, actually...
* SexBot: Self-proclaimed. It's not what he was originally built for, but he's certainly "well equipped".


[[folder:The Sleuth Brigade]]

A rather energetic bunch of kids, dedicated to solving the "mysteries" of the Voynich. Heaven knows what they expect to find.

* FiveManBand
** TheLeader: Leader--why else would he be called that?
** TheLancer: Vixen, no matter how adamantly she tries to be "TheChick."
** TheSmartGuy: Professor, of course.
** TheBigGuy: Fatty, to no one's surprise.
** TheChick: Formerly Peace, it seems Alice has taken over for her. Vixen tries to be this, but the poor darling just doesn't have the disposition for it.
* {{Kid Detective}}s: The whole lot of them.

!! Leader

* ScarsAreForever: Has a scar on his face from [[spoiler:the landmine detonation that killed Peace.]]
* SurvivorGuilt: [[spoiler:One of the two to have taken Peace's death hardest. It wasn't really his fault he stepped on a landmine, though.]]

!! Vixen

A little girl trying to grow up too fast. Quite the hothead.

* ACupAngst: Like most girls her age, she tends to worry about her lack of assets. Poor girl just can't seem to wait.
* FieryRedhead: Has quite the temper on her.
* FilleFatale: Well, she ''[[SubvertedTrope tries]]'' [[SubvertedTrope to be one,]] at any rate.
* SurvivorGuilt: [[spoiler:The second of the two who've been hit hardest by Peace's death. She was her rival, to some extent, though I doubt she'd have wanted to have "won" in this fashion.]]

!! Peace

A former-member. Poor dear [[spoiler:[[TuckAndCover died saving Leader from a landmine.]]]] She was, true to her name, the diplomatic one of their group.

* BuxomIsBetter: She ''was'' older than the rest of the group.
* TheChick: Formerly the group's diplomat and glue.
* TheLostLenore: Though the poor dears put on brave faces, its obvious they're still hurting from losing her. Even worse that she'd usually be the one consoling them, if it'd been someone else.
* MeaningfulName: Like I said, they didn't call her Peace for nothing.
* TuckAndCover: [[spoiler:Threw Leader to the side of a landmine he'd accidentally stepped on.]]

!! Professor

AKA Doctor. The Brigade's expert on mythology and legends! There's no story or mysterious past this guy ''doesn't'' know.

* BoyMeetsGhoul: [[spoiler:Rumour has it he has a thing for Tenebraum.]]
* TheSmartGuy: If there's anything to be done that requires research or delving into the realm of the obscure, he's their man--er, boy.

!! Fatty

* BigEater: They don't call him "Fatty" for nothing!
%%* TheBigGuy

!! Alice

Snark's younger sister. A rather nice girl, if painfully shy without her mask on.

* AliceAllusion: As if it were not enough that she's such an innocent child in the middle of this chaotic island, one must think her parents were very into Creator/LewisCarroll's work, considering her and her sister's name, and the rabbit mask she's so fond of.
* CassandraTruth: She says some pretty interesting things. While we won't say she doesn't know more than she lets on, you have to admit that most of those are probably products of an overactive imagination.
* TheChick: She seems to be filling in the void Peace left quite nicely.
* ExpressiveMask: Funny how that mask seems to mirror her emotions and mood, like it's reflecting her true face. We wonder how the maker did it?
* MaskOfPower: There's some talk of her mask not being all it seems. I wouldn't put much weight into it.
* ShoutOutThemeNaming: Sort of appropriate that her mask's a rabbit, isn't it?


First gangsters, drug dealers and assassins, then zombies, ghosts, and witches. I suppose the inhabitants from way down below were bound to make an appearance in all these silly rumours, eh?

!! Horon

* CurbStompBattle: Easily defeats [[spoiler: Beluna, and has it done to him in turn by Elena]].
* RealityWarper: Replaced the local donut shop with his own hotel for a little while, [[spoiler: though he's still [[CurbStompBattle less powerful than the youngest of the Three Sisters]].]]

!! Demona

* {{Cyclops}}: Her mask conceals her single eye.
* DealWithTheDevil: Is the one who supplied [[spoiler:Snark with her prosthetics and boob job.]]

!! Ashkelon

* BullyingADragon: Ashy shouldn't have tried to steal Taizou's soul when Elena was around.
