Characters Introduced in Cross:
Danielle "Dani" Tamari
The main character. Dani is a 12-year-old schoolgirl who notices something odd about her new Maths teacher, and can't leave well enough alone.
Real name Lucius Sinistrah, Jr. A vampire who murders his father and hides on Earth, and becomes a Maths teacher at Dani's school. Has a mysterious reason for hating Terror.
Abusive Parents: His father. Ambiguously Evil Animal Motifs: Ravens. Antiquated Linguistics: A variant; while not exactly old-fashioned, he usually speaks formally and sometimes descends into Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness. Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Like most vampires. Creepy Ravens: Turns into a raven and has a pet raven, Nevermore. Dark and Troubled Past Daywalking Vampire: Justified; these vampires are aliens. Deadpan Snarker: Like almost every character who says anything. Easily Forgiven: Sort of. Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette Flash Step: He crosses a room thirty metres wide in five seconds. Fountain of Youth: Thanks to Grievous and an unknown (so far) accomplice, he gets turned into a child in 10:30, The Day Before Yesterday. Immortality Begins at Twenty: He looks around 21. Inner Monologue Conversation: He answers Dani's thoughts at times, thanks to telepathy. Jerkass Literal-Minded: He assumes that "catacombs" have something to do with cats and combs. Looks Like Cesare: Unusually pale skin: check. Messy Hair (though it's brown, not black): check. Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: check. Manipulative Bastard Meaningful Name: Traditional vampires are afraid of crosses. Whether that's why he used it for his alias or not is ambiguous. His real surname, Sinistrah, is similar to "Sinister". Messy Hair: According to Dani, it looks like it hasn't been combed for a while. Unkempt Beauty: Possibly. He's attractive enough for most of the girls at Dani's school to have crushes on him when he first starts. Named After Somebody Famous / Name's the Same: Both averted and played straight. There's an actor called David Cross. As this post on the author's blog makes clear, this is entirely coincidental. But at the same time, this David Cross was named after an actor; he was named after David Niven, who played Phileas Fogg in . Around the World in 80 Days No Name Given: Until chapter 16. Only Known By Their Alias Our Vampires Are Different Self-Made Orphan: He killed his father. His mother committed suicide. Spock Speak Super Speed: One of his powers. Tall, Dark and Snarky Undeathly Pallor Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can become a raven.

Nightmare De Mon
Abihira "Abi" Rah
David's sister and a vampire assassin/biologist who is hired by Terror.
Is a double agent for Dracula
Action Mom: She has at least one adopted child, even though she and Helena have yet to appear together. Aloof Dark-Haired Girl Animal Motifs: Spiders. Ax-Crazy Dark Action Girl Deadpan Snarker Dissonant Serenity: From the way she refers to Dani being kidnapped, you'd think she was talking about "taking a short holiday", not, y'know, "being kidnapped". Does Not Like Men: She describes Dani's father as a "typical man", then goes on to describe how he chases after every woman he sees. Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette Emotionless Girl / The Stoic Even Evil Has Standards: She saves Dani from Grievous. And she saves Dani and David from Nightmare's zombies. Identical Grandson: Bears a startling resemblance to her mother, if Terror is to be believed. Immortality Begins at Twenty: Looks around 16, according to Dani. Improbable Aiming Skills: She shoots a remote control bracelet on Nightmare's wrist, apparently from quite a distance. Then again, she's an assassin. Jerkass Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She hates cruelty to children, and adopted Helena and some human children at some point in the past, so maybe. Mad Scientist: It's mentioned in passing that she's a biologist. Of Corsets Sexy Parental Substitute: For Helena. Professional Killer Raven Hair, Ivory Skin Then Let Me Be Evil: She was framed for killing someone she had earlier said she wanted to kill and spent thirty-five years in prison, and when she was let out of prison, everyone avoided her. So then she started training to be an assassin. Woman in Black

Above Good and Evil: Sees itself as this. The Narrator : A variation. Narrator All Along The Voice: Although some scenes imply that not only is Phantom another character, but a villainous character. Which means a villainous character has access to the main character's mind. Think about that.
