     Player Character 

The Spirit/Golden Eyes

The Player Character, nameless, voiceless, but definitely male.
  • Heroic Mime
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Should you choose to ascend a Sister instead of yourself.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Since the game is in first-person, you never really see the player character... until you go into your menus to manage your stuff. Then you get to see a nondescript, featureless, naked male person floating in a void.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Misusing colour leads to several Brothers and Sisters berating you, since every drop of Nerva you spend brings the Void that much closer to death.
    • Your very presence is slowly killing the Void.
  • No Name Given/ Only Known by Their Nickname: The Spirit is never given a name. Some of the Sisters call him Golden Eyes.
    • It's possible his name, or at least his name should he become a Brother, is Doppelganger.
  • Our Souls Are Different
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes

     The Sisters 

In General

  • Distressed Damsel: They're stuck in their chambers, their powers and free will restricted by chains and can only beg/trick/seduce you into freeing them.
  • Grey and Gray Morality: They seem like helpless damsels under duress, imprisoned by cruel captors, but many of them are just using you or are apathetically waiting to die.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: The majority of them are naked and they don't seem to mind or notice. You can even take away the Censor Chains by giving them colour. Only Ava really seems to notice.
  • Living Macguffin
  • Theme Naming: All the sisters have 3-letter names, except for Yani and Echo. This is mostly due to translation, since 'ya' and 'ch' are single letters in Russian.
  • Toxic Phlebotinum: Certain colours hurt and will eventually kill certain sisters, and damages their chambers.
  • Video Game Caring Potential: Giving them colour and freeing them makes them happier and more responsive.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: The player may poison them with specific types of colour and slowly kill all of them.

Uta

The Sister who lives in a damp flooded cave hear the body of water and lies in a suspended boat. She accepts emerald and silver colours, but is poisoned by amber and crimson. Her Brother is Mantid.
  • Extreme Doormat: Very scared to disobey her brother and therefore is very passive. She also tries to warn player to not interact with the Brothers, for his own good.
  • Mystical White Hair
  • The Stoic
  • Weird Moon: From her boat cradle she can see the moon through the hole in the cave ceiling. The moon has one eye, and it stares back at her. Also, the moon can be seen when the Player walks outside the cave. It is unclear if it is somehow related to Uta's attire.
  • Woman in White

Ava

Lives in an Egyptian-themed alcove. She accepts violet and amber, but is poisoned by gold and azure. Her Brother is Whaler.
  • The Tease: Promises you a "reward" for giving her more colour, which also removes her censorship.
  • The Vamp: Basically, she calmly and composedly begs you to feed her woth color.
  • Woman On Fire: Her chains are made of fire.

Una

A hot-headed Sister who lives in a big forge and is seen kneeling down before the fireplace. She accepts azure and crimson, but is poisoned by gold and violet. Her Brother is Patriarch.
  • Fiery Redhead: Both literally and figuratively.
  • Wild Card: She openly states she wants to do something big and revolutionary, like the fire is burning inside her. Yet she is harmless and has her own goals.
  • Woman On Fire

Ire

A seductress Sister who lives in a gazebo at the dark pond. She accepts amber and gold. Her Brother is Triumphator.
  • Fiery Redhead: Inverted: being a redhead, she is very calm.
  • Good Bad Girl: Constantly makes innuendos and tries to seduce the Player.
  • Stationary Boss: Subverted, if considered as a boss of sorts: she is the only sister who changes her location on her chamber.

Eli

Crafty and mannish Sister who lives on a blimp. She accepts silver and crimson, but is poisoned by gold and violet. Her Brother is Ironclad.

Ima

A masochistic and death-seeking Sister chained to a cross. She accepts emerald and azure, but is poisoned by violet and amber. Her Brother is Caterpillar.
  • An Axe to Grind: In a metaphorical sense: when talking to her, the pendulum with a blade is seen rocking above her and is ready to lower down and to cut her in half.
  • Brainy Brunette
  • Creepy Cool Crosses: Chained onto one of them.
  • Death Seeker: Constantly wishes the pendulum to finally cut her up and asks the Player not to give her colour and to leave her to die. This may be also a Consummate Liar attire.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: She is presented as a victim of torture, but she obviously wants to escape it.

Yani

A young Sister who lives at the top of the Void in a place that resembles a creepy flat in the house. She accepts azure and violet. Her Brother is Warden.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Zig-zagged: she actually does not want to leave her creepy chamber, implying that she is still scared to go deeper.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Ole. She is presented as a darker version of her. The Garden which is situated near her chamber in the Void looks exactly like Ole's, but with a dark sky.
  • Mystical White Hair
  • Mysterious Waif: No one really knows her motivations and wishes, except she is presented as a scared little girl.
    • Warden, however, does not believe her and considers her to be a Creepy Child. Then again, he is the Brother and has his own morality.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: Yani's chamber is the only one which contains no background music. Occasionally, the silence is broken by the sounds of footsteps out of nowhere.
  • Room Full of Crazy: The chamber where she lives resembles an abandoned and dark flat. Not only it is decrepit and dirty, its walls are also covered with blood stains, the rooms contain several tombstones, broken furniture and piles of strange books. In contrast, Yani tends to stay in a neat bed with a canopy, possibly seeing it as a safe place.

Ole

One of the top-most Sisters among with Yani, having the image of an eternal bride. She accepts amber and violet. Her Brother is Pit, but it's implied that The Spirit was intended to become her Brother.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Yani. She looks more like a hopeful and lighter version of her, and the Garden situated near her chamber in the Void is absolutely similar to Yani's garden, except it has a light day sky, but covered in thick brown mist.
  • Facial Markings: White and blue curving lines that go from her forehead, over her eyes, down to her chin. She also has some sort of symbol on her forehead.
  • Last Girl Wins: If you choose her.
  • Lighter and Softer: Not only her chamber is a lighter counterpart to Yani's, it is the only chamber that has windows and is lit enough not to be scary. It is still decrepit, but looks more positive and hopeful than chambers of other sisters.
  • Mystical White Hair
  • Older Than They Look: Has been waiting for The Spirit to arrive since she came into existence, to the point The Spirit looks old enough to be her dad. But Sisters aren't actually "born" until they reach the Surface, so that may be why.

Echo

The cryptic and mysterious Sister who once ran away together with Aya. Because of this, unlike the other Sisters, Echo doesn't have a chamber, so she wanders instead. She accepts silver and violet.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Constantly tells crazy stories about her vision of the world, to the point that most of her dialogues are nearly incomprehensible.
  • Meaningful Name: Repeats what other Sisters say.
    • Ironic Echo: Also reinterprets what the other Sisters say.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Once committed a crime against Brothers and ran away from her punishment. This way Echo could be considered as well-intentioned... or not exactly, due to strange morality of the Void and Brothers in partucular.

Aya

Like Echo, Aya also wanders, and refers to Echo as "master". She is the insidious Sister and has a plan to escape. She accepts amber and crimson.
  • Brainy Brunette
  • Dark Is Evil: Not only her hair is black, Aya is the only character in game who openly wants to destroy everything. She asks the Player to make her ascend so that she could spread chaos even at the higher plane of existence.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Just like Echo, but in another way. Because she never actually states what kind of chaos she wants to spread at the higher plane, her motivation can be seen as one, due to fact she wants Brothers to die.

Nameless Sister/ Sister Death

The first Sister you meet, and also the one who gives you a heart. She accepts emerald and gold, and can't be poisoned by any colour. She has no Brother.

     The Brothers 

In General

Mantid

Uta's Brother. He is considered to be the leader of Brothers. He is relatively nice to the Spirit, willing to tolerate him and give him a chance.
  • Blade on a Stick: His main weapons, and what's mostly keeping him together. He also uses these as stilts, to walk around on, to make up for his lack of legs.
  • Impossible Task: Likes to request these in the international release.
  • Mr. Exposition: Subverted: He explains the rules of the Void to you, but never makes everything clear.
  • The Stoic: Tries not to show an excess of emotions, being a leader figure.

Whaler

Ava's Brother. He is friendly enough and considers the Spirit to be a good person, but obeys the Void's rules nevertheless, meaning that he is as dangerous as other Brothers.
  • Cool Sword: Wields something like two rusty rapiers in both hands.
  • Flunky Boss: Floating fish heads accompany him in a fight.
  • Glass Cannon: A peculiar case in that the longer it takes for you to fight him, the easier he is to kill. His vulnerability wheel never falls off, so it's possible to OHKO him.
  • Losing Your Head: Of a sort. While his head's no longer on his neck, he hasn't lost it; it's strapped to his back.
  • Surreal Symbolic Heads: His head is replaced with some sort of ornate metal spire.
  • Timed Mission/ Non Standard Game Over: During his fight, he'll try to attach floating heads to the head spire. Once he gets all four, he makes a cave-in at the arena, which leads to Game Over.

Patriarch

Una's Brother, one of the nicer and calmer Brothers, like Whaler. This attitude may be due to the fact he is very old and does not have enough strength to argue with other Brothers, but break enough rules, and he will roll out to punish you.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Of a sort. He really cares about you and does try to help you sometimes.
  • Carry a Big Stick: His main weapon is a long piece of scrap metal, which he also uses to operate the wheels that substitute for his legs.
  • Driven to Suicide: Implied, should you choose to fight him.
  • Handicapped Badass: In Patriarch's case, it is played more straight than with other Brothers, with him having defunct legs and moving around on wheelchair-like contraption. But underestimating him is not a good choice.
  • Meaningful Name: He is the eldest Brother.

Triumphator

Ire's Brother, locked in strange mechanism resembling a pipe organ with other sound-making devices attached. He is not very serious and acclaims the reason to spend Colour, due to him and his Brothers being sinful.
  • Musical Assassin: Due to him being a music-themed Brother, he plays his own background fighting music. It is better to keep distance when fighting him, because he is armed with a pair of cymbals and will strike them if you approach him; the resulting shock wave can easily deplete you of all your Colour.
  • Stationary Boss: He can teleport when in danger, but will otherwise remain in place until he can teleport again.

Ironclad

Eli's Brother, who is fully covered in iron armor on tank treads. Being one of the most enhanced Brothers, he states that the metallic parts of the body are used to help holding giant amounts of Colour inside.

Caterpillar

Ima's Brother, who moves on a rolling ball. He is the most analytic of all Brothers and constantly strives to understand the nature of Colour. This is why he acclaims the colour-hungry motivation of Sisters, thinking about them as an another point of view.
  • Flunky Boss: This is the only way he can hurt you. He's accompanied by a bunch of rolling balls, similar to the one he uses to move around.
  • Gravity Master: One of his attacks involves pulling you to him. It can be avoided by hiding behind some obstacle.
  • Life Drain: What his flunkies do.

Warden

Yani's Brother, who has a literal cage in place of ribcage. He is one of the evil Brothers and wishes to punish you for manipulating Colour.

Pit

He was the brother of now-runaway Aya. Has a huge drill in place of his legs, which he can use to tunnel. Also, he is the victim of massive decay. His opinion on you is neutral and he does not want to interfere in the way of other Brothers.
  • Broken Bird: The reason why he is so mutilated is that he rebelled against Brothers and was temporary exiled to the lower plane.
  • Large Ham: Really loud and boisterous when fighting.
  • More Dakka: Launches stone shards when attacks. They have limited range, but fly around en masse.
  • Meaningful Name: He has a drill for legs and can go underground.
  • This Is a Drill: And a large one.

Tyrant

He once was Echo's brother, until she ran away. Along with Warden, he is an evil Brother and despises the Player, trying to expose his true nature. One of the most disturbingly-looking Brothers, due to having four heads, four hearts and four arms attached to a giant wheel.
  • Bonus Boss: While most of the Brothers are optional fights, Tyrant is the one you're least likely to fight. He doesn't participate in the witch hunt and is the hardest to anger.
  • "Get Back Here!" Boss: He's always faster than you, even at 100% speed.
  • Luck-Based Mission: His fight has shades of this, since his poisonous gas pops up in random locations.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Four arms stick from one side of his wheel.
  • Poisonous Person: Summons clouds of poisonous gas, which slowly drain your Colour.
  • Rolling Attack: Averted for some reason: in his fight he rolls in his arena circumferentially, but is unable to do any damage should you step in front of his wheel.

Montgolfier

This Brother returns from the lower plane of existence while the plot progresses, and Ole is given to him. Like Pit, he lost a lower half of his body, and this part of him is replaced with a giant hot air balloon.
  • Badass Arm-Fold: His default talking pose.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Of a sort. He really cares about you and does try to help you sometimes.
  • Climax Boss: fought at the end of Agony.
  • Meaningful Name: Montgolfier is another name for a hot air balloon. His lower body is like a giant balloon note 
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: In his boss fight, he throws something like Molotov cocktails at you.
    • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: When in real danger, he himself can drop down to perform a giant explosion which can easily destroy all your Colour if you do not know any protecting sigils.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Played straight in his case, since later on the plot he exiles from other Brothers and openly opposes them.
