Characters pre-time skip

    Matthew Mokaray 

The Mirror Cosplayer/Infinite Guard

The main character, Matt is a boy who died in an unfortunate accident at the age of 13. Due to his perfectly balanced soul, Matt's soul was split into two halves, light and shadow. The light half became a young angel who was recruited by Galaxina to be a guardian angel for her still-living sister, Cosmo. Using his special ability — the power of mimicry — Matt must protect Cosmo from all who would do her harm. Like the aforementioned shadow, for instance...

  • All Your Powers Combined: The power of mimicry allows Matt to temporarily assume the abilities and weaknesses of any character he can think of.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: The roleplays show him as being more selfish than he is in the comics. This goes double where courtship of his children is concerned, to the point of becoming a nearly intolerable Jerkass.
  • Berserk Button: Perverts. Post-timeskip, he starts getting incredibly irate when someone gets too close with his younger children.
  • Blood Knight: The Mogeko Castle arc reveals that he has a borderline addiction to conflicts, likening them to games. He even goes so far as to say that fighting is half the reason he continues to be a guardian angel.
    • This ends up getting him kicked out of the house by Tori.
  • The Hero
  • Idiot Hair: A pretty big one at that.
  • Mighty Whitey: Subverted. He adopts several of Tori's customs while she adopts several of his. Religion is ironically his poor suit.
  • Official Couple: Matt and Tori (much to Boar's annoyance).
  • Overprotective Dad: Does not like the romantic gestures being sent towards his children in the RPs. Except for Saru.
    • This descends into full screaming lunacy in the later roleplays. While he played a direct role in Torch giving up on Inu, his role in Matthew giving up on Uma was indirect at best. Miriam's relationship with Ne was largely unaltered by his meddling.
  • Sleep Mode Size: He looks like a fairy from The Legend of Zelda when he isn't defending Cosmo.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: He occasionally changes size while mimicking other characters, but the real question is where his costumes come from.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: He says so himself. Though pornography was used pre-timeskip to activate his nosebleed attack.
  • They Killed Matt Again: Prone to dying and using suicide tactics. As Death Is Cheap for him, this is usually played for laughs in comics.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Matt is arguably the character who took the single greatest number of levels in badass after the time skip.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: He has several, including a tendency to fall asleep in cold weather, a sensitivity to head injuries, and a crippling fear of blood. Though he is capable of negating the first one by SETTING HIMSELF ON FIRE. He loses all of these weaknesses except the head injury sensitivity after the time skip.

    Galaxina the Seedrian 

The Azure Master

Matt's "Sensei" and legal guardian. She has a hard time dealing with Matt's childish nature, but in the end gets him to listen to her. As she is deceased, like she was in Sonic X, she is unable to interact with the real world often, but she still looks out after her little sister from above.

  • Adaptational Badass: She's a lot stronger than she was in Sonic X. Of course, she was just an extra there.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: "Can you say that you're a good person?". Subverted in that the target just tries to lie his way out.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Really doesn't find Matt's gags amusing.
  • Not So Above It All
  • Retcon: Originally, Galaxina had feelings for Matt. This was quickly retconned as Collin having cheated in a game of poker where she bet herself doing almost anything the winner wanted when she started running out of chips. Later, Galaxina cheats right back at Collin as revenge.
  • Stern Teacher: She doesn't have a whole lot of time to make Matt a guardian angel, so his comedic actions are met with disdain or sent right back at him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair was always this color.

     Cosmo the Seedrian 

The Seed of Hope

The last living Seedrian, and the one Matt has been sent to protect. She's a sweet child who has been living on Mobius after the events of Sonic X. Though not as adventurous as Sonic and Tails, she's been roped into Dark Matt's plans to become a villain and manages to take the whole thing in stride.

     Ben Mokaray 
Note that these sets of tropes do apply to each other.

From the comics

The King Of Dragons

Matt's older brother and an avid inventor. He's had his own adventures on Orbis, a land populated with dragons and other mystical creatures.

From the Data Logs

Altairen Draconis the Destroyer, HE Who Walks the Rift

Ben on his own tends to have different experiences far from the rest of the world, being first a truly powerful yet constructive person, and two, quite different in the way he conducts himself while alone.

  • Afraid of His Own Strength: Due to most of Ben's higher powers being higher forms of controlling the world's energies, they tend to have some devastating effects. Take the Existential Crash for example. The move works by slamming both swords of Time and Space together and the end result does NOT harm. Instead, it ERASES the target completely, obliterating it from current time and space. (It is balanced with a heavy price for being performed.)
  • Alone in a Crowd: Seeing how much the world at large cares not for the facts they are given, and the large amount of unit casualties (read: 7 million plus by the time he comes back for Matt, 9 million plus by 2031 (put here for those interested)) he acquires saving Orbis from its own political nightmare, Ben realizes how little everyone cares for their lives, much less anything else; in stark contrast, Ben DOES value his life and everything around him. And of all things to do, he starts to question why, making things stranger.
  • Badass Adorable: The Gadgyt form (due to being an unassuming ball of potential fuzz and Ben's main form).
  • Badass Driver: Ben has tendencies to pull out all the stops from time to time.
  • Badass Longcoat: Unlike most examples, Ben's serves two purposes. First, it is a functional piece of armor. Second, it operates as a form of a power limiter in the fact that it simulates Orbisian gravity, slowing him down to Earth speeds (but not his reaction times). The coat itself, however, also carries something else with it from the Orbis Wars — Ben's rank, which, if one pays attention to the collar, his rank is five stars. Only person higher than him is Lady Sephise at six stars. How many people does Ben outrank you ask? Of notable importance, the Realmian Council (all of its members are four star), Synder (also four star), Sa'kura (his mentor on Resonance control (rank three star)), and Se'vile D'Agnosto (Ben's rival (at a paltry two star)).
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Ben has patience even for those going too far. Push him in the wrong direction however, you're lucky if you survive.
  • Draconic Humanoid: Able to transform into a particular such form known as a Gadgyt, and it is revealed his true identity is one as well albeit a slight case of One-Winged Angel though not in the way you'd expect and is notably caused to occur by Hulking Out. To put a name to this already crazy thing its official name is a Gadgyt Majoris.
  • Earn Your Title: specifically the titles Altairen Draconis the Destroyer (translating from latin to Atlantis (Orbisian's do have a concept of the lost city though it translates more to a state of elightenment in their tongue) and Dragon), gotten by slaying a massive army numbering in the hundereds of thousands after awakening from unconciousness for the first time, and the Gadgyt of Discord's End title, thought to be given upon destroying the Orbisian concept of Chaos (Note: Read Sephise/Tiamat's counter being. It is unknown which it was of. Ben refuses to speak of it.) and aquiring the powers for himself (granting him better control of the Resonance he uses and putting him way above the normal Gadgyt in their manipulation skill), naming the land the two fought upon Discord's End.
  • Fights Like a Normal: See the Willfully Weak entry below.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Ben takes it upon himself to do what he has to in order to keep injustice from being repeated.
  • The Gunslinger: Averted: however, this is only in the case of the bigger enemies. Most of the villains Ben faces in the Data Logs are much faster and much more armored. To put it one way, a bullet wouldn't even harm any of the da Vichi family due to the metallic forms they acquire. This includes Anya.
  • Hero Insurance: Averted on a crazy scale. Da Vichi's death treats Ben to so much ire, it is the one thing that starts his whole plotline through Orbis, the residents of Central City not realizing that had he failed, they would have suffered at da Vichi's grand master plan; better the planet by destroying and rebuilding the human race as his servants to do his everlasting bidding with no escape and no free will (only way of putting it nicely and shortly).
  • I Have Many Names: Ben has several titles referring to him. Examples include the spoiler above, Black Jacket, King of Clubs (refering to the club shaped dagger on the back of the jacket), The Destroyer, Four, Judge and Executioner, The Dealer, Slayer of Dreams, Reaper of the Many, The Gadgyt of Discord's End, and The Crusader.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Once the black jacket Ben wears is cast off, his speed increases tenfold, due to the absence of the metallic plates within it. And while the jacket is a form of armor (playing the Shed Armor, Gain Speed trope straight), Ben is far from fragile even without it.
  • Mana: Ben's comes in the form of Resonance, this energy originating from at times the natural world around him, other times from the crystal within.
  • Mighty Glacier: With the jacket on, Ben is this.
  • No Name Given: While Ben has all these titles and nicknames, the Gadgyt form has no name to its own calling, instead being referred to as Icarus Wayfarer (yet another title).
  • Power Limiter: Ben has five of them. These are: A necklace (prevents Resonance use and casting), the trademark black jacket (restricts speed, only works when worn), a zirconium ring (prevents the use of Rift energy), a pair of locks on both swords (The first prevents them from being summoned to his hands. The second differs between the two. Space's dulls its edge to a bludgeon weapon/normal sword. Time's prevents the use of its non standard functions.), and the requirement of a limitless power source to unlock the highest forms.
  • Shed Armor, Gain Speed: Happens often in the case of stronger, faster foes.
  • Sleep Mode Size: Averted. Do not confuse the Kazu persona as this. As Kazu, Ben can still kick your ass a million different ways from Sunday.
  • The Stoic: More a case of The Quiet One, Ben rarely emotes as he's mostly up inside his head occupied with a puzzle, riddle, or some combination thereof. When he does speak up or emote, take note as his input may just be more than meaningful. It may very well be enough to keep someone sane.
  • Talking the Enemy Into Non-Combat: What Ben tries first in most cases of an opponent willing to listen.
  • Willfully Weak: Ben fights this way, as the more control he can maintain, the better the results usually are. This mostly only works though if his cool can be maintained. Otherwise, the power limits come off.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: Ben's plans are mostly forms of this, as improvisation is key to Orbisian styles of combat, which really affects his thinking.
  • Zen Survivor: Mostly the reason why Ben cares not for the waking world as well as barely interact with it. See the Alone in a Crowd entry above.

     Synder 

The Mother Of Dragons

A dragon from Orbis and Ben's love interest. She acts as a surrogate mother, giving birth for couples who cannot. This leaves her rather bloated in almost all of her appearances, but she is far from harmless.

  • Baby Factory: Played with. Half her character is about birth, but the other half is portrayed as much more normal than most of the other cast members.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Burninating the Collins just wouldn't be as cool if she wasn't a dragon. For a little more detail, Synder is of the Orbisian Species known as Minaps (pronounced Min-apps (thinking of the word Manipulation helps) due to their great skill in manipulating the Arcane), a race of dragons devoted (but not fully) to the Arcane.
  • Team Mom: Her maternal instincts are not lost on the cast. Except maybe Collin. She really doesn't like him.
  • Official Couple: Ben and Synder.
  • Only Sane Man: Of Ben's group, though she does have her moments.
  • Pregnant Badass: Pregnant half the time? Check. Nigh-unstoppable fire-breathing bringer of death? Check.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: As a dragon, she eats lots of meat.
    Cosmo: That explains why the nearby burger joints have been so successful these past years.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer: In the roleplays, her strategy is claw and burn, or claw and burn harder.

     Anya 

The Woman Made of Science

A genetically engineered girl with power over the nanomachines in her body found by Ben during his adventures.

     Tori Tsukino 

The Bird Without Wings/Necromantic Cat

A foreign exchange student from Japan. She and her siblings were forced to flee their home when Tora accidentally revealed them as werebeasts. Tori herself changes into a nekomata during the full moon.

  • Acrofatic: Post time-skip. Her overblown weight doesn't seem to keep her from moving and jumping around at all.
  • Artistic License – Animal Care: Averted. She is lactose intolerant even when she isn't a cat. However, it's played straight in that she can still eat chocolate.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Downplayed and Exaggerated. Despite serious weight gain after the timeskip, Matt still finds her attractive. But some of the other cast members fear for her health. The exaggeration comes in the fact that post-timeskip Matt can barely lift her!
  • Cat Girl: Has elements of this when about to transform.
  • Face-Heel Turn: She becomes harshly antagonistic towards the Heroes League of the Mogeko Castle RP arc, where she has enough of Mordred threatening her family.
  • Hybrid Monster: Though the same could be said about all of her related family (except Boar), Tori has both elements of the Bakeneko (raising the dead) and Nekomata (having two tails) Youkai.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: Unlike her older siblings, Tori has no control over when she transforms, and very little control over what she does while transformed. At least before the time skip.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Unlike her brother, she does use a katana as an adult.
  • Meaningful Name: Averted. "Tori" means "bird", but she's a were-nekomata.
  • Necromancy: An ability she gains when she fully transforms.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: She loses it completely with Mordred shortly after his attempt to kill Ne. And by lose it, we mean she declares the entire Belnades and Calibur families her enemies and denies Miriam from ever marrying Ne (whom she almost killed herself over), purely to SPITE him. And she kicks Matt out of the house out of disgust at his Blood Knight tendencies, much to the shock of Artemis and Luigifan.
  • Pun: As an adult, she is a fat cat.
  • Ronin: Her fighting style is based on overblown anime renditions of dishonorable ones. This is in direct contrast to Boar's honorable samurai schtick.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: She is rather meek and humble as an adult. But push her too far, and...
  • Took a Level in Badass: She goes from being completely incapable of fighting without help to a Lightning Bruiser that can raise skeletal minions.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Catnip when she transforms fully, and silver at all times. This has cost her lots of change.

     Boar/I Tsukino 

The Youkai Yakuza

Tori's older brother and a businessman in the field of electronics. He works hard for his younger sister, but barely cares for Tora.

     Tora Tsukino 

The Iron Liver

The middle child of the werebeast family. As she turns into an oni, her desire for alcohol leads to a plethora of misfortune and was the reason why she and her siblings left Japan.

  • Berserk Button: Does not approve of Rebecca's plan. All because it made Collin turn to alcoholism using HER beer.
  • The Big Guy: The tallest cast member, and is only outdone in raw strength by Synder.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl
  • Meaningful Name: Like Tori, averted. Her name means "tiger", but she turns into an Oni.
  • Shipper on Deck: Supports Matt and Tori's relationship, which is another reason why Boar doesn't like her.
  • The Unfavorite: Between her and Tori, Boar definitely prefers Tori. This is partially because Boar is the breadwinner of the group and Tora has no excuse for relying on him. And drinking as much as she does. And constantly crashing his car. And shipping Tori with a deadbeat. Though Boar actually still cares about her. He just refuses to show it.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: Tora's degree of control over her transformations is between Boar's and Tori's. She's much more in control than Tori, but is implied to be at least somewhat dependent on her pendant for that control.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Silver.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Becomes a professional wrestler for a mixed fighting style organization after the timeskip.
  • Youkai: As a were-Oni, she typically drinks a lot and wields a kanabō when something pisses her off.

     Collin 

The Endless Stupidity/Undeterred fool

An incredibly mentally challenged jerk. He is perverse and a fan of outlandish violence and refuses to believe anything he doesn't like. Especially annoying to Matt because despite Collin's claim that they're friends, Matt hates him because his stupidity is what got him killed. Later, he realizes the problems his actions have caused and betters himself during his own adventure.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: He is this to all women he deems attractive. He also has one in "Chase's" demon counterpart, "Lucy".
  • All Men Are Perverts: He thinks so, but he is the only male to act perverted.
  • Blessed with Suck: His aura is so chaste that it drives off cubi and makes anyone nearby lose their lustful drive. It also means every girl in the world refuses his advances, though that might actually be a good thing for everyone else.
  • The Chosen One: Turns out he was one of seven children destined to help stop some renegade demons from causing chaos all over the world. Who knew?
  • The Ditz
  • Dumbass No More: Post-time skip.
  • Irony: Is the most perverted member of the cast. So naturally a spirit of pure chastity lives inside his soul.
    • After the timeskip, his Casanova Wannabe traits are replaced with a crippling case of gynophobia. However, it is less funny when it results in him doing nothing to help women.
    Collin: *While Ivy is falling to her death and he has the chance to save her* Guh... I can't do it... I just can't...
  • Hero of Another Story: During the timeskip, he is tasked with stopping some demons causing chaos.
  • Moral Myopia: Pre-timeskip Collin is stated to literally not understand people having their own opinions.
  • The Load: A trait he loses once he starts thinking about things between the time skip.
  • Take That: His pre-timeskip personality was a take that to an annoying classmate the cartoonist hated.
  • Too Dumb to Live: His entire pre-timeskip character in a nutshell.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Gains the ability to pass through solids and walk on non-solids once "Chase" wakes up.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: EVERYTHING pre-timeskip. Post-timeskip changes this to just women, with a few exceptions, which the mere sight of causes him to panic.

     Entegra Whidoe 

The Childless Mother

A drider who lost her children, but one in particular stands out. After the rest were crushed, Entegra became overly protective of her last daughter, Devin. Unfortunately, Dark Matt kills Devin. This drives Entegra over the edge and causes her to go on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge to take Devin back.

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Her breasts became larger after laying eggs, but they serve no purpose. Her skeleton apparently goes from endo to exo partway through her body. Has eight eyes, two of which are human-like. A human mouth with two spider feeler things, and can spit webbing out of it. Matt at one point decides that her spider abdomen contains all the silk she makes because it makes about as much sense as the rest of her.
  • Black Widow: Literally, she's a black widow drider.
  • Jerkass
  • Killed Off for Real: Dies before the start of the timeskip. It's implied that she died of old age.
  • Mama Bear: The only times she ever behaves nice is when Devin is with her and she knows Devin's safe. And nobody is doing anything to set her off.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: She has large breasts, but they don't seem to have a purpose. Though she does claim they ruin her figure.
    • She also claims that drider breasts only develop after giving birth... and also that driders can only produce one brood before becoming infertile. And also that the breasts are not used for feeding the young. This baffles Luigifan, who, being a biologist, is left to wonder why such a trait would evolve in the first place.
  • Punny Name: Her name can be played with to make "negra (black) widow".
  • Rule of Funny: She's Welsh. Why? Because Welsh sounds funnier than other English speaking countries.
  • Stock British Phrases: "Bloody hell" and "Wanker" are common phrases she uses.
  • Spider People: A fact that terrorizes Matt a lot.
  • Super Strength: Despite her tiny size, she is effortlessly capable of flinging the normal-sized characters around, and especially Collin.
    • In the roleplays, it's noted that she may be even stronger than Knuckles the Echidna. So it's no wonder that in battles between Entegra and her archenemy, Wrapsodi Skuttla (who is just barely slower than Sonic the Hedgehog), Entegra is victorious 19 times out of 20.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Matt.
  • Your Size May Vary: Canonically, she's six inches tall. However, she suddenly changes to six feet to fit in with the others during the roleplays.

     Devin Whidoe 

The Sad Puppeteer of Fools/Puppeteer of Unknown

Entegra's youngest child. Unfortunately, she was killed and taken by Dark Matt purely to spite her mother. Though Artemis takes good care of her, she deeply misses her mother.

  • Adorably Precocious Child
  • Angst? What Angst?: Is rarely seen crying about being a kidnap victim, instead usually crying about getting hurt or getting lost.
  • Cloning Blues: She's actually a clone of Entegra, made by Dark Matt and Artemis to manipulate Entegra into hating them.
  • Damsel in Distress: Though unlike Cosmo, Dark Matt keeps a pretty good grip on Devin.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter
  • Ship Sinking: Devin is entirely uninterested in Luigifan18's Lucas. Pommyman had to retcon a conversation between Matthew Prower and Eric because Devin couldn't have married Lucas because she was either homeless at the time or the Head Maid, which speaks for itself.
    • Later notes have, however, noted that she does have interest in him as an adult. Maybe.
  • Spider People: Heavily masked by a curse, however. This doesn't stop people from knowing she's a spider, which was simply Hand Waved as her having a "Spidery aura".
  • Third-Person Person: Devin no know what Troper mean by this "I" thing Troper talk of.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Gradually takes more and more levels in Jerkass as the comic (and roleplays) continue. After the time skip, she's even more of an asshole than her mother was.
  • You No Take Candle: Artemis couldn't be bothered to teach her English.

     Marion & Marian 

The Marionette Gemini

A pair of puppet-like familiars owned by Devin. They are exceptionally loyal to her and all of their previous masters.

  • Engrish: Marian Lv2 either is speaking by way of nonsense, or in a most posh and eloquent manner. Justified in that she uses such odd speech patterns to make Devin laugh.
  • Evolving Weapon: They grow in power and change in appearance the stronger their summoner is. They have gone through three appearances, starting as jesters, changing to a Knight in Shining Armor and a Cute Witch who spouts memes, and then changing again to a gold-plated hero and an elegant sorceress.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Marion is male and acts as a warrior, whereas the female Marian uses magic.
  • Non-Ironic Clown: Their first level of summoning has them dressed up as jesters.
  • Punny Name: In Spanish, "-a" is used for effeminate objects and "-o" is used for masculine objects. Guess which is male and which is female.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Being made of wood, they are very weak to fire.

     Dark Matt 

The Criminal of Worthless Crimes/Blood Writing Demon Lord

The cast-off darkness from Matthew's life formed into what is called a Shadow, a kind of subclass to sinners. He was entrusted to Artemis, who was supposed to punish him for the actions the original Matthew made, but due to her own madness, Artemis quickly turned Dark Matt into her boyfriend. He has since acquired his own identity and acts out malicious intents on a whim. He has no rhyme or reason for why he targets Cosmo; he does it because he can.

  • Creepy Good: Once he becomes a demon lord. He goes about his work — namely, rewarding good deeds and punishing bad deeds — in a gleeful and remorseless manner. He's a "good" guy.
  • Enemy Without: He is literally the worst parts of Matthew, having little empathy or self-control. Well, he tries to act like he doesn't.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: To the point that he is outright immune to fire.
  • Fake Ultimate Mook: He's a bit of a threat, but once his true nature is revealed, he is completely helpless.
  • Henpecked Husband: He is clearly not the one wearing the pants in his relationship.
  • Love Martyr: He's loved back, but when the girlfriend is a Horny Devil, this tends to not end well.
  • Noble Demon: Literally becomes demon nobility after marrying Artemis. By all accounts zigzagged, though. He tries to be taken seriously, but he sparingly does actual evil at first, but then he tries to kill Cosmo, but does a Face-Heel Turn soon after.
  • Official Couple: Artemis and "Dark" Matthew Astarte.
  • The Power of Hate: It's his life force pre-timeskip.
  • Reality Warper: After the timeskip, he loses the power of mimicry in exchange for this. More precisely, he becomes the embodiment of Laser-Guided Karma. More precisely still (and metaphorically speaking), the laser-guidance system.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Like Matt, he can't stand head injuries, but he has some unique ones, such as holy weapons. His fear of blood is far greater than Matt's, to the point that a bloody cut results in him cowering in fear.
  • Wild Card: He's referred to as this by Legault in the roleplays. This does not describe his allegiance (though he's often a Wild Card in that regard as well), but rather how dangerous he is.

     Artemis Astarte 

The Princess of the Dead House/Endless Shadow Armed Demon Lady

A demon noble who is in charge of punishing Dark Matt. This would have been a good idea had events 400 years ago not made her a little mad. In the end, she claims Dark Matt as her boyfriend and starts planning how to keep him for herself.

     Dark Ben 

A shadow of Ben. Mysteriously, he shows little to no bad will; in fact, he is single-mindedly devoted to creating things that can help the world.

     Altair 

The Angel of Obsession

An archangel who lived during the Renaissance era. He does not approve much unless it benefits the church. This includes a strong dislike of Matt and Galaxina, viewing one as a "fake angel" and the other as a witch. Despite his yelling, he doesn't do much. Onscreen, at least. Offscreen, he is secretly absorbing the souls of those who have finally been cleansed by hell so he can destroy it once and for all. Reason? Artemis fell in love with him.

  • Cain and Abel: He's the Cain.
  • Celestial Paragons and Archangels: Only a position such as this could satisfy his ego.
  • Defector from Decadence: Thinks of himself as such, but he is far more violent than he claims.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Is really mean to those that don't support God. Whenever he tries to spread his religion, he does so by force. As it turns out, he's not a good person at all.
  • Light Is Not Good: The arguable villain of the pre-time skip. Dark Matt just doesn't want to die, but Altair? He will not stop until hell is nothing more than nothing simply because Artemis fell in love with him.
    • He still tries after the time skip, but he has been stripped of his power and his youth and therefore can't do much of anything. At least, until he gets re-empowered as part of a divine Xanatos Gambit to discredit violence in the name of religion once and for all.
  • Take That: Devout Christian, hates homosexuals, thinks God is on his side, incredibly forceful... If only he started protesting things...
  • Tautological Templar: He is just because he is an angel. He is an angel because he is just. His plan to destroy Hell continues even after he is told it would create an imbalance in the afterlife, because if he thinks it won't ruin anything, then it won't.
  • Story-Breaker Power: While you'd think Matt's ability to become anyone would be broken, in practice, its many drawbacks keep it in check. Altair's real powers, however, are completely broken. With every purified shadow he kills, he gains their strength and skills while simultaneously erasing them from history so no one even knows he murdered a person.

     Luke/Zaccaria 

The Overlord

The devil, though not the first one. He is incredibly powerful, but incredibly restricted in his cosmic role. All in all, he's not so bad.

     The Cartoonist/pommyman 

A fat bearded cartoonist who draws the comic.

  • Author Avatar: Took this from Matt when he decided to make him more dynamic.
  • Cosplay: Appears in the Fire Emblem Awakening comics as the tactician.
  • Epic Fail: Prone to making ludicrous errors in roleplays, up to, and including, mixing up his own characters. Or Luigifan's. Either way, confusion and Hilarity Ensues.
    • In comics, his actions as the My Unit usually result in this.
  • Self-Deprecation: If he's in a comic, he's either ranting about something, making fun of himself, or having something bad happen to him.

Characters introduced after the time skip

     Ivy Prower 

The Adventuring Flower

The daughter of Tails/Ray note  and Cosmo. Adventurous and outgoing, she takes the second in command position of the child cast.

     Kellam "Sky" Prower 

The Cowering Glacier

Ivy's younger brother. He is shy and timid, so he tends to avoid conflicts when they arise.

  • Gender Equals Breed: He's a fox in the comics and a flying squirrel in the roleplays.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Only wearing a sweater, but it's far more than most male Mobians wear.
  • Lovable Coward: He's not very brave, but he's not a bad person.
  • Punny Name: There's a bit missing, but his name is supposed to be Kilometers per hour.
    • The pun is completely lost in the roleplays, where he's Ray's son instead of Tails's.
  • Super-Strong Child: He manages to lift Tora's kanabō. While flying. He later manages to break through a magically-warded wall that had been thought impossible to bypass through any means short of lifting the ward. Now, if only he wasn't such a coward...
  • You Gotta Have Green Fur

     Esther Mokaray 

The Leader of the New

The daughter of Ben and Synder. The most level-headed of the child characters, a fact that almost always makes her the leader whenever they form a group.

     Saru Mokaray 

The Violent Willow

The eldest daughter of Matt and Tori. She is incredibly aloof towards other characters, but still cares about her younger siblings Inu and Uma. Like her mother, she has the ability to transform into an animal.

     Ne Mokaray 

The Never Bored Prankster

The second-oldest child of Matt and Tori. A massive prankster who pranks any and all he can find using the power of mimicry he inherited from his father.

  • All Your Powers Combined
  • Fragile Speedster: Physically weaker than his father, but makes up for it by being faster and far more annoying, meaning every hit on him that isn't actually a trick is pretty painful. However, he's noted to have more stamina in terms of maintaining mimicry.
  • Irritation Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery: Shares his father's hairstyle, but he actively tries to make it look like such.
  • Meaningful Name: Unlike his siblings, "rat" is a pretty valid name, as he is indeed "a sneaky little rat".
  • Oblivious to Love: Doesn't seem to fully understand Miriam's interest in him. In fact, he continuously forgets who she even is! He's actually trying to forget some trauma associated with her.
  • The Prankster: With great power, comes great potential for pranks.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: He inherited his mother's weakness to silver, despite being a mimic rather than a werebeast.

     Inu and Uma Mokaray 

The Twins of Science

The youngest children of Matt and Tori. They are devout intellectuals who read almost as much as possible, and are prone to throwing a fit if someone won't tell them how something works. They too can transform into animals.

  • Brainy Babies: They are very intelligent, even having started math at one year old.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Their typical reaction to feeling like they're Surrounded by Idiots, which is all the time.
  • Half-Identical Twins
  • Harping on About Harpies
  • Meaningful Name / Running Gag: Their names mean "Dog" and "Horse" respectively. They turn into harpies.
  • Sibling Seniority Squabble: Averted. They were apparently born at the exact same time, according to Tori.
  • Ship Sinking: In the roleplays, Matthew Prower believes Uma is his soulmate. Unfortunately, Uma isn't into romance, and especially not a Rescue Romance. Even Matthew's Character Development into a genuinely competent person doesn't improve her opinion of him all that much.
    • Inu similarly rejects all advances towards him by Torch. Of course, she wasn't exactly helping very much when she started squeezing him. His overblown rejection of her causes Torch to reject him in turn, instead focusing her attention in Sky (and, to a lesser extent, Matthew... until she gets fed up with Sky's cowardice and officially becomes Matthew's girlfriend).
    • The former ship is no longer sunk as of the distant-future roleplay at "Easter teeth", much to Matthew's surprise, making this a case of Anchored Ship instead. Only to sink again a short bit later when Uma reveals that she wants Matthew to marry her duplicate. Matthew, being decidedly not a Robosexual, can't accept this and hooks up with Torch instead.
  • The Smart Two
  • Squishy Wizard: They tend to have a variety of things they are good at — puzzle solving, building machines, etc. Fighting, however, is not something they're good at, as they have very poor physical strength and naturally have the defensive capabilities of toilet paper.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Silver.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Uma finally returns Matthew's feelings! So he can marry her robot duplicate...

     Damien Astarte 

The Chocoholic/Full Glutton

The eldest son of Dark Matt and Artemis. Though his parents have long since stopped pretending to be villains, Damien wishes to follow in his parents' old footsteps... Or so he claims, because after his romp in the past, he gives up on evil like his parents.

  • Absurdly Youthful Father: The roleplays end up turning him into this during the Ophelia parts of the roleplays. He's a mere 15 and a single parent (his wife is 6 years older than he is).
  • All Men Are Perverts: If the roleplays are any indication, he really loves Dream. Presumably, he's equally fond of whoever his wife is in the comics.
  • Big Eater: Gluttony demon. Three guesses what his favorite activity is.
  • Black Hole Belly
  • Comic Trio: Serves as The Leader or The Fool.
  • Crossover Ship: Dream x Damien is canon in the roleplays. The comics are a different story.
  • From the Mouths of Babes: Not surprising, given who his mother is. However, it's limited to sexy things, as Damien remains oblivious to actual sex.
  • Glacier Waif: His standard mobility makes him much slower than everyone else, but his teeth are like axes.
  • Heir Club for Men: Averted. His jerkish actions lead to Priscilla becoming the head of the house.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Averted. See Weaksauce Weakness.
    • He also has issues with it outside his dietary habits, mostly the chance that a person might break through his stomach lining, thereby killing him. Of course, if he assumes he's dreaming, like in the Mogeko Castle RP arc, it's fair game, since, as it's a dream, he is safe from the repercussions. Of course, learning it wasn't a dream has him vomit just as bad even WITHOUT anything to make him vomit.
  • Logical Weakness / Informed Flaw: Eating heavy objects weighs him down, potentially to the point of immobility if he eats too much. Except he seems to have made that up so that Dream could have a turn at keeping him from getting hurt.
  • Oblivious to Love: He's at least better than Ne, as he understands that he has feelings for Dream. He just doesn't quite understand them yet.
    • As the roleplays go on, he becomes less oblivious, and, well...
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Handwaved in the roleplays as him becoming stronger the more affection he feels towards and receives from Dream.
  • Stepford Smiler: His 2031 bio reveals that he is completely aware that most of the other characters don't like him and that he chooses to simply ignore that to try and stay "friends" with them.
    • This doesn't apply to Dream, though. She's considered his first real friend aside from Nessie.
  • Sweet Tooth: Loves chocolate above all else.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Though he eats a lot and has a massive appetite, his stomach is very sensitive about undercooked meat, to the point that it's inedible for him.

     Priscilla Astarte 

The Demon of Light

Damien's younger sister. The youngest out of all the time skip characters at an outstanding ONE year old. Being a pride demon, she has learned how to talk in an effort to draw attention to her.

     The Head Maid 

The Puppeteer of Unknown/Outraged Drider In a maid Outfit

The head maid (only maid actually) of Dark Matt's manor. She's quick to anger and hates almost everything and everyone, though she never gives a reason.

     Nessie 

The Mute Siren

Damien's "pet" anglerfish mermaid. She used to be pretty tiny, but because Damien knows his stuff, he flushed her down the toilet to abuse the sewer radiation to get a giant unstoppable minion. She grew to about six feet.

     B.I.L.L. 

The Empty Lover

A "Boyfriend Invented for Lonely Ladies", B.I.L.L. is a robot designed to be a boyfriend for women who can't get any. As such, he is programmed to be sweet, kind, and affectionate, without being lewd. The Astartes bought a B.I.L.L. for their maid as a gift... but she just finds him irritating.

     Ryu Tsukino 

The Dragon Successor

Boar's son and inheritor of his fortune. Much like his father, he cares deeply about his pride and is unwilling to back down once pushed, and also rather hates Matt. He is capable of turning into an Eastern-Style dragon (think Shenron and that about sums it up) at will, but proves to be a far more skilled swordsman than one would expect.

     Rosa Tsukino 

The Street Witch

Boar's wife and the mother of Ryu. As of this post, little is known about her, but her relationship with her husband and son have indicated that she is of a threatening disposition, is sexually attractive, and has a fondness for fast food.

     Blake 

The Glutton of Desire

Damien from a time even further into the future. A villain that is childish and goofy at some points yet cold and deadly at others, presumably because he went insane after losing his wife. He runs across the time stream taking women from all over time to add to his "friendship harem".

  • Archnemesis Dad: Is this to Ophelia. She doesn't like the fact that he'd rather hang out with women than play with her like they used to.
  • Big Eater: Inverted. Despite being a gluttony demon, he eats surprisingly little.
  • Bishōnen: Messy hair and tacky suit aside, he's rather good looking. A bit of Fridge Brilliance considering his heritage?
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Damien was a pretty good guy until the emotional despair of losing his wife empowered his shadow.
  • Buzzsaw Jaw: Literally, his teeth can move like a buzzsaw chain.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: His "friendship harem" is literally a harem where all the women he's captured are all friends with him. Blake finds the idea of having sex with them disgusting.
  • Future Me Scares Me: He does not shy away from targeting Damien with his antics.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: The only other known person to like Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Just like his mother.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Subverted. Unlike Damien, he could eat people if he wanted to, but that's gross. Biting, however, isn't out of the ordinary (though Damien bites if he needs to, he doesn't enjoy it).
  • Master Poisoner: Willfully poisoned his father into an unending coma just to try and become the head of his family.
  • Psychopathic Man Child: If you are an adult and your idea of a harem consists of pillow fights and video games, you are a man child.
  • Troll: Constantly belittles and taunts others.
  • Sweet Tooth: One of the many traits he kept from his childhood.

     Ophelia 

The Lost Pirate

Blake's daughter. She is incredibly imaginative and playful, but ultimately she secretly blames herself for not helping her father stay sane.

     Eloria Kierobrung 

The 13th Beast

Damien's boss (from 2050 or so) and Demon Lord of Wrath. Constantly scheming to accomplish any goal she deems worth fighting for, with her current one being to unite the demon lord bloodlines into the perfect demon, starting with the Astartes.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Is this to Adult!Damien. As Blake, he still doesn't like her.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Luka, though in a very grumpy fashion.
  • Gratuitous German: Her last name is a combination of the German words for War and Conquest.
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: Loves axes above all else.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Her father wanted a successor full of wrath. He got one who was very angry at him.
  • Hidden Buxom: She is usually depicted as being flat chested... Up until we get a good look of her outside her armor at which point she is clearly the same size as the Head Maid, minimum.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Priscilla claims she is surprisingly good with children. This is also half the reason she's really after Adult!Damien, as she wants Ophelia to grow up with a mother and father.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Her abilities are all violence related... With the exception of a Phd in psychology.
  • May-December Romance: Immortality and all that results in a strange case with her and Damien, as despite both being roughly the same physical age, Damien is at least a thousand years younger than her.
  • Musical Spoiler: Isn't it strange that the character who wants to marry gets the song comparing love to being hanged?
  • Not So Stoic: As a wrath demon, it's not uncommon for her to go from calm and collected to fuming. Though there are two notable instances in the "Easter Teeth" roleplay.
    • When Dream appears at Priscilla's house when she's not supposed to be.
    • When Luke begins heading towards their location in order to get rid of Dream right after Eloria has finally accepted her.
  • Punch Clock Villain: Beats up sinners and orders around punishers to pay the bills.
  • Self-Made Orphan: See Gone Horribly Right.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: Her power is the ability to turn into feral animals. And then there's her true form.
  • Walking Armory: Her outfit is composed almost entirely out of hidden weapons.
  • Wendigo: Her true form is at least visually based on them.
  • What Have I Done: Paralyzing her brother in a duel after she was blinded by rage resulted in this.

     Mildred 

The Fantasy Pilot

Blake's Maid who replaced the Head Maid. She is a huge Fangirl of the Final Fantasy series, but especially Garland. This is to the point that she specifically made almost all of her Mech suits modeled after him.

     Alen and Elan 

The Literal Box Fish

Two otaku sharkmen brothers with a love of boxing. They serve both as Blake's lackies and a replacement for Nessie.

  • Bash Brothers
  • Butt Monkey: Mildred continually abuses them for the lulz.
  • The Ditz: They're both kind of a moron.
  • Epic Fail: How Elan came to be. Pommyman accidentally wrote Alen as ELAN during one roleplay.
  • Honor Before Reason: They strictly adhere to the rules of boxing in a fight. This includes giving their opponent a pair of boxing gloves (which means that they don't risk cutting their hands on their razor-sharp skin) and refusing to use their jaws in combat.
  • Otaku: Why does Alen follow Blake? So he can get stand powers, duh.
    • Elan, on the other hand, wants "kawaii" things.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Much more human-like than Nessie. The major differences being that they don't lose their legs in the water nor lose their fins on the land.

     Alison 

The Wound

Collin's wife-to-be, but never showed up at the altar. Collin places her on a pedestal, but it's apparent that she struck something hard in his heart.

  • Demonic Possession: Gets possessed by Snake-Jaw in the roleplays.
  • Face-Heel Turn: Suddenly goes from being nice to hating Collin with every once of her being. She's being impersonated.
  • Lady Not-Appearing-in-This-Game: Played with into a plot device. She only appears in a flashback, but her absence was a key part of breaking Collin.
  • Stuffed In The Fridge: Originally, she was going to have been straight-up killed, but the author decided against it, as this made the new side villain too dark, allowed for Snake-Jaw to potentially return in the roleplays, allowed better characterization for her attacker, and the fact that it seemed unreasonable for Collin to be unable to notice a murder happening in front of his house.
  • Ridiculously Average Girl: Incredibly generic. Either way, the impact her disappearance has is much greater than you'd think.
  • Runaway Bride: Collin lasted a long time at the altar, but she bailed on their marriage entirely. It was not voluntary.
  • Woman Scorned: Apparently despises Collin for completely unknown reasons.

     Rebecca 

The Warring Female

A "friend" of the head Maid, though it isn't just her who finds her annoying, what with being a Straw Feminist who refuses to shut up about the good she's doing. She's much more dangerous than she lets on.

  • Ascended Fanon: Originally just a plain human with some combat skills, however, due to Luigifan finding it more interesting if she had Pokémon on her team, she now has Pokémon, including the fan-made Magihexy.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Seemingly acts on this. Very well might considering the means to her end.
  • Does Not Like Men: Odd in that for all her misandry, her best friend is a Straw Misogynist.
  • Moral Event Horizon: In the roleplays, where it's revealed that she purposefully malnourished Alison so that Snake-Jaw could possess her without a fight.
  • Not So Different: To Leon.
  • Straw Feminist: Her character concept. A deconstruction to be exact, as her insane and unreasonable demands not only hurt her cause, but she personally tries to force other feminists into believing her beliefs are the correct beliefs, despite blindly heading into an oppressive and unhealthy lifestyle.
  • With Friends Like These...
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist

     Leon 

The Warring Male

The Maid's other "friend". A sophisticated-looking man with... questionable sanity. Though he acts like a nice guy, he is just as bad, if not worse, than Collin pre-timeskip when it comes to women.

  • Anvilicious: Patriarchies suck.
  • Evil Patriarch: He dreams of a world where women are subservient to men and revere them. Naturally, everyone finds this idea terrible.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: Though he does genuinely believe the Maid and Rebecca are his friends. Somehow.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Uses this to explain why women are inferior to men.
  • Not So Different: To Rebecca.
  • Take That: While Rebecca is considered wrong about feminism, it's made clear that it's because she's going about it wrong. Leon, on the other hand, is mocked in various ways, ranging from his incredibly low intelligence rating, the fact that he's only the head of the patriarchy because he wished for it when he found a genie, the fact that he's the ONLY member of the patriarchy, and that Dark Matt outright calls his goals backwards and pointless.
  • Too Dumb to Live: And yet he thrives.

     Caroline 

Fight-less Fighter

The third "friend" of the Maid and most sane of them. Yes. The giant tarantula woman is more sane than the previous two characters.

  • Butt Monkey: Gets utterly no respect, especially from Rebecca.
  • No True Scotsman: Like Rebecca, she is a feminist. However, she takes a methodical approach to her beliefs and tries to get all the facts from a given situation. Needless to say, Rebecca hates her opinions and facts.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist
  • "Slapstick" knows No Gender: Frequently the butt of physical "humor" courtesy of a scalding hot coffee to the face.
  • Spider People: What could possibly be worse than a black widow spider person? A tarantula spider person.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: All three of her "friends" either hate her guts or could care less about her. This extends to the rest of the cast in a minor sense as well since NONE of them even know who she is.

     Troy 

A drider in a mechanized suit who fights crime.

  • Good Counterpart: A robot suit wearing Dridder. Didn't Blake have one of those?
  • Only Sane Woman: For her first roleplay appearance.
  • Power Armor: Unlike Mildred, Troy is the size of her suit and isn't using it like a Mecha.
