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.
  • Berserk Button: Perverts. Post-timeskip he starts getting incredibly irate when someone gets too close with his younger children.
  • 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.
  • 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 

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 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 

The King Of Dragons

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

     Synder 

The Mother Of Dragons

A dragon from Relmia 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.
  • 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 

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.
  • 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.
  • 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 

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 

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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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, 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.
  • 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, but 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 

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

Sky'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.
  • 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...

     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.

  • Fragile Speedster: Weaker than his father, but smaller and more annoying. Ne also has more stamina than his father, allowing him to maintain mimicry for longer.
  • 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.
  • 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.

     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.

     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.

     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.
  • 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.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Subverted. Unlike Damien, he could eat people if he wanted to, but that's gross.
  • 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 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 Damien. As Blake, he STILL doesn't like her.
  • Gratuitous German: Her last name is a combination of the German words for War and Conquest.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Priscilla claims she is surprisingly good with children. This is also half the reason she's really after Damien, as she wants Ophelia to grow up with a mother and father.
  • Punch Clock Villain: Beats up sinners and orders around punishers to pay the bills.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: Her power is the ability to turn into feral animals. And then there's her true form.

     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 possesed 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. Unfortunately, pommyman wasn't too keen on the fan made Magihexy and is potentially going to replace it.
  • 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.
