Bully Hunter: Initially it was only Will and Cornelia, but the others became involved in keeping Uriah and co. at bay pretty soon.
Fridge Brilliance: Their enemies are basically bullies with supernatural powers. It makes sense that girls that already resisted bullies would make good Guardians.
Covert Pervert: Too many instances to list. Just go to the Radar subpage and remember it's not even half of what they've done.
Custom Uniform of Sexy: The Guardian outfits only have in common the wings, purple shoes, leggings striped in two shades of green, and tops and bottoms being coloured either aqua green or purple (pink in the cartoon), plus exposed stomach for the first outfits and some kind of gloves in the New Power outfits. Everything else is different... And the end result is always sexy.
Dude Magnets: All of them have caught the attention of more than one guy.
Sexier Alter Ego: In Guardian form they don't just become older, they get the body they dream of. Made most evident by Will's actual older form (shown in two possible futures) being less busty than the Guardian form, Irma's Guardian form being skinnier than the actual Irma, and the Guardian form of Cornelia, who is the one who is actually happy with her body shape, simply being an Older Alter Ego with Rapunzel Hair and wings.
Power Perversion Potential: Irma (in the comic book) and Cornelia (in the cartoon) have both noticed how their Guardian forms are useful to get noticed by older boys.
One Degree of Separation: Well before ever meeting each other they were connected through the previous generation of Guardians, as Yan Lin personally knew three of them and Kadma and Halinor were keeping tabs on Will and Taranee through the people helped by their charity.
Physical Goddesses: Where Will, as the Keeper of the Heart, had the potential from the start, the whole group reaches this level in the New Power arc, as shown when Hay Lin picked an hurricane and closed it in a small paper box.
Power of Friendship: Justified. The stronger the bond between the Guardians, the stronger they are when fighting evil. A recurring theme in the comics and show.
Purple Is Powerful: Their Guardian uniforms, though they look more pink in the animated series.
Teens Are Short: Downplayed. Each of them are short, but that's probably because of puberty.
Town Girls: Femme - Cornelia, Neither - Will, Taranee and Hay Lin, Butch - Irma.
True Companions: Even when they fight, that won't stop them from making up later on.
Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: Mildly deconstructed: all of their personal lives suffer for their Guardianship, especially Will and Cornelia. The former has to deal with leadership and the trials of having a single parent while Cornelia has had to sacrifice time from her figure-skating career to save the world. Taranee actually quit at one point because she didn't like the way Candracar treated them and Cornelia has repeatedly shown she'd drop the job if she didn't feel indebted to help the others. Irma and Hay Lin have the least conflicts but even they have their share of problems. Despite these troubles, they still pull together and get the job done while handling their personal lives.
Wilhelmina "Will" Vandom
Voiced by: Kelly Stables
And, uh, lightning!
The Quintessence Guardian, and the main protagonist. She holds the Heart of Kandrakar, which gives the other girls the power to transform into their guardian forms.
A-Cup Angst: She's insecure about her lack of a noticeable bust and prefers being in her Guardian form due to the Breast Expansion it gives her.
All of the Other Reindeer: The comics showed that Will' s friends from Fadden Hills only hanged out with her because they felt sorry for her parents being divorced. They didn't even like her. It was never shown if this happened to the cartoon Will.
One of her enemies tried to trick her into thinking this would eventually happen with the other Guardians, but the Oracle assured her that even he could not see what the future would be.
Badass In Charge: The leader of the Guardians and the most powerful of all of them.
Inverted in season one of the show as she had no offensive, played straight in season two when she gets Quintessence.
Badass Normal: In season 1, but in season 2, not anymore since she gets her Quintessence powers. Averted in the comic, where she has those powers from the start.
Beware the Nice Ones: Sweet, shy, not entirely confident girl. She will mess you up if you harm or threaten her inner circle, believe it.
Case in point: her treatment of Phobos in the fourth story arc. After he gave her an hell of a Mind Rape, she reacted by nearly torturing him to death, and only spared him because she remembered just in time that he wasn't in his real body and had to fix that situation. He escapes, but in their next encounter he finds himself at her mercy and has barely enough time for a Big "NO!" before she disintegrates his soul. Ouch...
Book Dumb: Especially math. A C grade is pretty good for her, according to Hay Lin.
Bully Hunter: Most evident in the comic: when seeing Uriah and his gang tormenting a dormouse she chased them away, and when she thought they had returned she immediately turned violent (it was actually Matt). She and Cornelia will later involve their friends in the activity of keeping Uriah and co. from tormenting people.
Butt Monkey: Very evident in the comics, to the point where she screams out "Why does this keep happening?!" when her pet dormouse is ran over.
The Chains of Commanding: A recurring theme in both the comic and the show is that Will has the extra burdens of being the Keeper of the Heart in addition to the usual Guardian duties. This becomes more manageable over time as the girls become a stronger team.
The Chessmaster: Has a stint in the second season of the cartoon, and actually succeeded at playing Phobos like a fiddle. If only Cedric hadn't seen that coming and decided to try his luck as the conqueror of the world...
Fiery Redhead: Can be emotional at times and prone to outbursts. Ironically, she seems to have inherited this from her responsible dark-haired mother than her calmer, but less reliable red-haired father.
Lethal Chef: Her mother and Matt are terrified by her attempts at cooking because she's as bad as Akane Tendo in her first attempts. Or maybe worse: Akane never confused powdered soap with flour...
Lightning Can Do Anything: In its most basic form, the Quintessence power just shoots lightning. But it can also animate nonliving things, bring life to technology, giving them their own personalities, turn astral drops into real, living beings, and quite a few other things.
Mama Bear: She doesn't take threats against her little brother very well. At all.
Will also counts. There's even a villain who claimed that fifth element is willpower.
Mixed Ancestry: Her father is Caucasian and her mother is a still, unspecified ethnicity.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: It was her decision not to tell Elyon that the girls were Guardians and Elyon was the lost princess of Meridian, which ultimately allowed Phobos to manipulate Elyon for half the season after telling her the truth and showing her that her friends had been keeping secrets/lying. Cornelia gave her quite a bit of crap over it.
Not a Morning Person: Frequently in the comics and the supplementary materials mention it, too. Not as much in the show, but the European opening shows her being awoke by her alarm and immediately falling back into bed.
Red-Headed Stepchild: To Dean in the comics. To Serena in the TV series. Subverted in that they both actually care about her and don't treat her like the trope, in the show she treats them with distrust until she warms up to them with one issue of the comics being about her finally calling Dean "Dad!"
Teleporters and Transporters: By the end of the show she's the only member of W.I.T.C.H. that can do this, though it's justified as they were in a desperate enough situation for Will to risk using it without the years of training the technique usually requires. Caleb actually teaches her and the others how to do this in the comic
Tomboy: Enjoys sports (competitive swimming is her main interest) and frogs.
Name's the Same: As her half-brother William, at least in their shortened versions. This led to amusing results when everyone got them mixed up at a family reunion.
Unkempt Beauty: Her hair is the messiest of the Guardians and her boyfriend doesn't seem to mind in the least. There's a lot of scenes in the comics where Will is shown getting out of bed and her hair is a complete rat's nest... and she looks adorable.
The Water Guardian. Known for being the class clown at her school, she and Cornelia have a long-standing rivalry. She is close friends with Hay Lin. Despite displaying some jealousy over his friend Martin's girlfriend (who previously had a crush on her), she was starting a relationship with Joel, Matt's bandmate. Ultimately, she chose neither and is currently dating a new character named Stephen.
Hair-Trigger Temper: She has shown to have bad control over her temper in the TV series. On two occasions, it made her say some terrible things to her friends, Blunk and Martin. She learns to try and control it in "O is for Obedience".
The Fire Guardian, Taranee's hobbies include dancing, math, and photography. She later starts liking Nigel, a former delinquent.
10-Minute Retirement: In the comic, she gets increasingly frustrated with her life as a Guardian and comes to feel that she's being manipulated and used by the Oracle, and as such she quits the team, stays out of action and refuses to use her powers for several issues (though she still hangs out with the other girls and helps provide cover stories and alibies when needed). Her place on the team is temporarily filled by Orube, a warrior woman from the planet Basiliade, though the Oracle and the other girls make it clear to Taranee that she is welcome back on the team at any time.
Nerds Are Sexy: Debateable, she's a cute girl and has no problem attracting love interests. Her possible future selves are all in good shape due to her professions (dance instructor and runner). Her Guardian forms are definitely this, as she keeps her glasses in them.
Number Two: Often becomes this when Will, for some reason, can't lead the group.
The Earth Guardian, Cornelia is from a wealthy family and is easily one of the most popular girls at school. She enjoys figure skating. At first was head-over-heels for Caleb, but later on realized that they were just friends. Later, she falls for Peter, Taranee's older brother. Close friend with Will and best frenemy with Irma.
The Ace: Seems like this at first: she's a beautiful blonde from a well-off family who's popular (the novelizations cite her as being one of the "Infielders" at Sheffield Institute) and a gifted figure-skater. Even her friends are a little jealous of her at times.
Broken Ace: She is just as inexperienced in romance as the other girls and has major confidence issues when it comes to dating an older boy, at least at first. It's also shown she doesn't enjoy the spotlight as much as she thinks she would.
Big Sister Bully: Cornelia could be a little meaner than she had to Lillian. When it was revealed in "U is for Undivided" that Lillain was the Heart of Earth, Cornelia's attitude changed. By the end of the season 2 finale, Cornelia might have averted this trope.
Big Sister Mentor: She will become this to Lillian since she is the Heart of Earth, and Cornelia is the Earth Guradian.
Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Cornelia can be a jerk, arrogant, and selfish...she also is loyal, doesn't like bullies, and will kick the ass of anyone that hurts the people she loves.
I Just Want to Be Normal: When the Guardians were temporarily Brought Down to Normal at the start of the New Power Saga she was the only one who wasn't freaking out, feeling finally normal. She instead freaks out when they get the titular power up, and had an Oh, Crap face when she saw it descending from the sky (again in contrast with the girls, who were happy of seeing the incoming magic and getting the power up).
OOC Is Serious Business: In "T is for Trauma", Hay Lin isn't her usual cheerful, goofy, smiling self... she's quiet, frowning, depressed, and (at the end) very pissed off. WE know that if someonelikeHay Lin can resort to this, that means that the Big Badwent too far.
Easily Forgiven: Particularly in the animated series. Granted, she wassuckered into it all, but she was warned by the Guardians several times about it and received several hints, but never caught on until it was too late, yet all the Guardians forgive her immediately afterwards for all the times she tried to blast them.
Inverted in the comics, where she slowly became suspicious of Phobos and Cedric (despite the fact that it was implied she wanted to believe her brother wasn't that evil) and made up with Cornelia MUCH earlier than in the show.
MacGuffin Girl: In both the comics and the show Phobos is obsessed with gaining her powers. As is Nerissa in the show as it's implied that Phobos' entire reign was just a ploy the fallen Keeper to obtain the Heart of Meridian.
Meaningful Name: Elyon means "The Most High" or "Highest" and was the name of the ruling God of Canaan as well as being one of the titles that the Judeo-Christian God possesses. Once you know this, her almost godlike power and place as true ruler suddenly seem very logical.
Put on a Bus: In the comic, after the Meridian storyline is over. Like Caleb, she makes occasional cameos later on but is mostly gone from the story. Averted in the animated series, in which she remains an important character in the second season (she didn't appear in the "Nerissa" arc of the comic, aside a special issue completely dedicated to her).
Rapunzel Hair: Even with her hair tied down in two braids they both reach her waistline.
The leader of the rebels and Cornelia's boyfriend.
Ascended Extra: He's a fairly minor, though still significant, character in the comic; in the animated series he's one of the main characters and frequently acts as a sort of Sixth Ranger to the girls.
Badass: He doesn't have any powers. He's also one of the biggest badasses.
Facial Markings: Has them in the comic in the form of green stripes on his cheeks, they mark him as a former Whisperer that defected from Phobos. Word of God says they weren't included in the show because test audiences found them unnerving.
Fish out of Water: Has trouble adjusting to Earth in both formats, though he gets better.
Put on a Bus: In the comic. He's forced to choose between his duty in Meridian and his relationship with Cornelia — in the end he chooses his duty, leaving Earth and effectively leaving the story (apart from a few cameo appearances later on).
Hay Lin's grandmother, and previous Guardian of Kandrakar, who first tells the girls of their powers and duties, as well as presenting Will with the Heart of Kandrakar. Acts as The Mentor to the girls in the animated series and to a lesser extent in the comic.
Age Lift: Visibly younger and more spry in the cartoon series. The comic has her as a white-haired and somewhat frail old lady, who dies in the second issue, and afterwards takes on a sort of Spirit Advisor role.
Big Good: Becomes the Oracle after Himerish resigns.
Spared by the Adaptation: A strange version; in the comic she dies in the second issue, though her spirit lives on in Kandrakar, where she continues to guide the girls from afar and eventually, after having spent some time as the Oracle's closest advisor, becoming the new Oracle. In the animated series, she's notably younger-looking and remains active in Heatherfield as The Mentor and Secret Keeper for the girls throughout the series.
A native of the planet Basiliade who is introduced as the Temporary Substitute for Taranee when she quits the team, and who becomes more of a Sixth Ranger Taranee returns. She does not appear in the animated series, largely because the story arc that introduced her was never adapted.
Action Girl: A trained warrior from a warrior culture, she embraces this trope sometimes to the exclusion of everything else.
Defrosting Ice Queen: Starts out as extremely haughty and dismissive of the other girls, viewing them as pathetic children lacking the warrior instinct, but over time, she loosens up and becomes a lot more friendly to the point of becoming somewhat of a Cool Big Sis figure.
Fish out of Water: She's sophisticated enough to realize that tv sets are machines, not magic, but she still needed to be taught that romantic melodrama movies aren't Real Life.
Freudian Excuse: Two in the comics. First, her father sending her away to train as a child made her view the Guardians' immaturity much more harshly than was warranted and her mentor Luba's Heroic Sacrifice also soured her view on the girls despite Luba doing it to atone for putting the girls in danger in the first place. She does grow out of them and eventually sees the girls as her friends and teammates.
Lethal Chef: Sort of. Nobody ever ate an Earth dish prepared by her because she will either flood the kitchen or burn whatever she's cooking, even the pasta.
Look What I Can Do Now: Strange example: when she returned on Basiliade during the Trials of the Oracle arc and was confronted by the guards of a Garden of Sun, she said she was from Basiliade and had been originally trained in a Garden like that one, but her real training had been received on Kandrakar. The guards, all bigger than her, believed her only after getting the crap beaten out of them.
Mukokuseki: Probably some kind of Asian, but no one's really sure. Then again, she's not even from Earth.
Ms. Fanservice: Frequently seen in various states of undress or in the bath (especially in her solo special that has her getting into a bath as Book Ends) and wearing fetishistic costumes (including lingerie and a schoolgirl-esque uniform despite being college-aged). The uniform really caught Cedric's attention.
Proud Warrior Race Girl: Basiliadians, both male and female, are trained in martial arts from an early age, and Orube is one of the best warriors. Unfortunately, her mental training hasn't been quite as effective, and she still sometimes has problems controlling her temper.
A "passling" (a smelly, goblin-like creature with the uncanny ability to sniff out portals between worlds) native to Meritian. He's a smuggler by trade, though he prefers being called a "trader" or "businessman."
The Nose Knows: Probably his biggest contribution to the cause is his ability to track people and portals by smell, even garnering the name "bloodhound" at one point. It's a trait of his people, which is ironic because they all have awful body order.
Undying Loyalty: To the girls and Caleb. Pretty much everyone who he befriends with them.
Vitriolic Best Buds: Has this dynamic with Caleb for a while (type 1), but Caleb warms to him over the course of the series.
He seems to have a weird friendship with Irma in "O is for Obedience."
The Oracle (Real name: Himerish)
Voiced by: Michael Gough
The Big Good of the series and the head of the Council of Kandrakar. He is patient and understanding (to a point), he has great powers and great wisdom, and he is genuinely concerned with the well-being of all — though, as he is sometimes painfully aware of, he is not as infallible as several of the characters seem to think he is.
Demoted to Extra: In the animated series, he has a much smaller role and doesn't even meet the Guardians face-to-face until the second season, probably because Yan Lin is at hand to explain things.
Everyone Calls Him Barkeep: For much of the comic and all of the animated series, he's only known as "the Oracle." In the comic, it turns out even he himself has forgotten his real name, having placed his old identity behind him when taking up the mantle as the Oracle. During his 10-Minute Retirement he regains the memories of his old life, as well as his real name, Himerish, and when he returns to being the Oracle, he elects to keep his old memories rather than let them go again.
A God Am I: Subverted in the comic: as he was about to inflict a Laser-Guided Amnesia to Interpol agents trying to discover the Guardian's source of power he compares himself to the Deus ex Machina of ancient Greek theatre, but then immediately states he's not a god, just popping out from nowhere to solve the situation at hand.
Reasonable Authority Figure: Most of the time. Sometimes he forgets what it's like for normal people and can as a result come across as needlessly harsh or unreasonable, but he genuinely tries to avoid this.
Seriously, after just learning his girlfriend's secret on the first day, Matt is surprisingly okay with her being a Magical Girl Warrior. Although that may have something to do with Will's Sexier Alter Ego body...
The Power of Hate: What initially made Shagon strong. The more you hate him, the stronger he gets.
Voiced by: Lloyd Sherr
Caleb's second-in-command, a native of Meridian.
The Atoner: In the comic, he starts out as a bad guy but eventually gets a Heel-Face Turn — after which Caleb trusts him enough to make him his Lancer. In the Elyon one-shot comic, he and Elyon encounter a group of people who still remember and hate Vathek for his villainous days, and despite Elyon's protests, Vathek willingly lets them put him on trial because he feels they are justified in their hatred of him.
Heel-Face Turn: In the animated series, he was The Mole and on the side of the good guys all along. In the comic, he was originally Cedric's loyal Brute who was sent to the resistance as a mole, but ended up having sympathy for their cause (as well as taking what Will said to heart) and genuinely changed sides.
Our Orcs Are Different: Like most Meridian natives, he has an orcish appearance. In the comic, he explains to Elyon that the orcish-looking Meridians call themselves the "Galhot" and are the original natives of Meridian. The more human-looking Meridians are called "Escanors" and are actually descended from humans who came to Meridian many generations ago.
Took a Level in Kindness: When you see what a sweet, nice guy he is, it's pretty hard to believe he was really no better than Phobos or Cedric at first.
Number Two: Runs the rebellion when the Underground City is under attack.
Totally Radical: He tries to communicate to Cornelia like this in an early episode and only receives a confused, "Huh?" for his efforts.
Dormouse(comics), Mr. Huggles(cartoon)
A very cute pet Dormouse that Matt gave to Will as a present in the TV series, but he took it back in the second season when it was evident he could handle him. In the comics, he doesn't have the name "Mr. Huggles", but is nonetheless a very important creature in Will's life and the reason that she met Matt.
A small, furry creature from the world of Basiliade with strange powers, he followed the Oracle home to Kandrakar and refused to go back home. He was eventually placed in the care of Orube, and became somewhat of a Team Pet to the girls. He doesn't appear in the animated series.
The evil prince of Meridian. He rules the planet with an iron fist, and wants to steal his sister Elyon's magic to add to his own in order to make his power complete. Main villain of the first season, and a major one in the second. He is the most-recurring villain.
Meaningful Name: His name means fear and is also the name of the Greek god of fear.
Obviously Evil: While not quite a full on Card-Carrying Villain, he's pretty close, never attempting to disguise his regime as anything but the oppresive dictatorship it is unless Elyon's around.
Orcus on His Throne: Phobos rarely does anything for himself- at least, anything that he can't do from the comfort of his home. Heck, Will and Cedric are the only two he even exchanges a single line of dialogue with until episode 26.
One-Winged Angel: Her spider form to a degree. Miranda's human form is her actual form and she needs to consciously maintain her Spider form (any time she is knocked out, she reverts). Cedric on the other hand, defaults to his beast form and does not revert when rendered unconscious. So while the two have similar abilities, they are clearly not the same type of shapeshifter.
The former Quintessence Guardian. She attempts to rule the world by defeating Phobos and the Guardians.
Adaptational Villainy: Somewhat Inverted in the cartoon. She does appear remorseful over killing her best friend, Cassidy, where in the comics she doesn't. It is also very evident that she loves her son, Caleb and her lover/Caleb's father, Jullian. But father and son know that Nerissa can't be redeemed. Plus her relations with them doesn't stop Nerissa from attacking them.
The Dreaded: Very much so. Quite telling is how the Oracle choose to deal with her assault on Kandrakar in the comic version: ordered the use of the Resonance, a power that risked to destroy Kandrakar itself (it didn't work).
Dude Magnet: Enforced. In "T is for Trauma", Nerissa brainwashed all the males closest to WITCH (sans Caleb and Matt), to further her own goals.
An ogre-like hunter who works for Phobos. He was undefeated in battle until defeated by W.I.T.C.H. and joins the Knights of Vengeance in the second season. He rides a giant rhinoceros creature named Crimson. He forms a rivalry with Raythor, but this vanishes several episodes on and they become respected allies. At the end of the series, he is the only minion of Phobos who remains loyal, the others either dead or turned traitor.
A demonic-looking skeletal man, the Tracker is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. A feared tracker and hunter hired by Phobos, the Tracker becomes a recurring villain and joins the Knights of Vengeance, although while the other members were loyal to Phobos, the Tracker joined to get revenge on the rebels he once chased. He is aided by a scary dog named Sniffer, who can track down any scent. The Tracker fights with a glowing chained flail and bat-like creatures.
Originally a pool of rebel-consuming quicksand, he was frozen over by the Guardians. In the second season, Nerissa revives him into a humanoid form to join her Knights of Vengeance. He later has a Heel-Face Turn.
Heel-Face Turn: Sides with Elyon after learning Phobos is truly unhonourable.
Voiced by: Lauren Tom
Will's single mother. Susan is a kind and caring person, but is strict when raising her daughter, often lecturing her child on responsibility and her grades. Even so, the two have a good relationship. In the cartoon and comics, Susan dates Will' s History teacher; in the latter marries him and gives birth to their son, William Collins.
Glamorous Single Mother: Downplayed. Susan does take care of her daughter, but they do fight like all mothers and daughters.
Hypocrite: In "H is for Hunted" it was revealed that Susan lied to Will about seeing Dean again. When Susan started to reprimand Will about promising to get the laundry, Will retorted that she promised to stop seeing her teacher. Then, she really lays into her mom about the hypocrisy when she lied to her daughter on responsibility, while lying to her about seeing her teacher.
Lethal Chef: She put a cellphone into the soup she was making for dinner.
Will's long lost father. He shows up in his daughter's life unexpectedly and wants to win her love back. In the comics, he's called "Thomas" and has dark and selfish intentions for showing up. In the cartoon series, he's known as "Tony" and he really does want to be in his daughter's life with no ulterior motive.
Adaptational Villainy: Inverted. In the TV series he is heavily implied to be irresponsible and disappeared for months. But now he just wants to reconnect with his daughter. He was a straight up Jerkass in the comics.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Only in the cartoon. It's true, he did leave for months and didn't bother to call or send mail to his only daughter. But, now that he's back, he wants to be a part of Will' s life.
Karma Houdini: In the comics, he gets away with what he did and gets the money he wanted, and more, with the condition he'll stay away from Will. He also cheats his accomplice of his share when he doesn't need those pictures on Susan and the judge Cook anymore.
Will's History Teacher at Sheffield Institue. He is dating Susan, Will's mother and later marries her. At first Will isn't thrilled at Dean dating her mom, but eventually grows closer to him, as he does to her. In the comics, he and Susan marry and have a son, William Collins.
Bad Bad Acting: Noted on it by Will in the cartoon' s second season episode, "J is for Jewel".
Took a Level in Badass: In the second season episode, "M is for Mercy", Dean manages to pull Susan up to safety...using just one arm and sheer will.
Wicked Stepfather: Averted in the comics. Dean and Susan don't marry by the cartoon's version's end, but given his personality, he would've averted it there as well.
Voiced by: Elisa Gabrielli
Only appears in the cartoon series. Serena is the fiancée of Tony and future stepmom for Will. Initially, Will thinks Serena is Nerissa in disguise, but is proven wrong. Serena turns out to be a really nice and cool lady.
Only appears in the comics. He is the son of Dean Collins and Susan Vandom-Collins, thus making him the younger half brother of Will Vandom. He and Will have a close relationship, and he enjoys being with her a lot.
One Steve Limit: Averted: when Dean's relatives visited after his birth they started calling him Will in Will's presence, resulting in her repeatedly answering what she believed were calls for her until her mother revealed her actual name.
Taranee's mother. She is a judge and often shows it when disciplining her children, particularly her daughter. Theresa means well, but sometimes doesn't make the most rational choice.
Armor-Piercing Slap: Only in the comics. She does to Taranee when she thought her daughter had lied to her about where she was going with her boyfriend and friends. To teach Taranee a lesson, Theresa slaps her! Things don't turn out well afterwards.
Adaptation Dye-Job: His goatee in the comics was red. It matched the same as his natural hair color in the cartoon.
Cool Big Bro: He and his sister get along much better than most sibling of their ages do and when they do fight, it's treated much more dramatically than Irma's spats with Chris and the Hale sisters' arguments.
Dreadlock Rasta: Of the "mellow, laid-back surfer" variant. Hay Lin even describes him as a "rasta" at one point.
Cornelia's younger sister. The baby of the Hale family, so she is doted on by her parents. In the TV series, it was revealed that she was the Heart of Earth and wields great magic. Until she is old and mature enough to handle the truth, her regents (Matt, Mr. Huggles, and Napoleon) will wield her powers.
A Girl And Her Cat: She immediately falls in love with Napoleon, the Hale's pet cat, in "B is for Betrayal". The same thing happens in the comic book. Napoleon eventually becomes one of her three regents.
Hay Lin's father and Yan Lin' s son. He's a very nervous guy, especially when his daughter or mother are doing something that makes him nervous. He helps run the Silver Dragon with his wife and mother.
Adorkable: When he gets overprotective of his mom and daughter.
Disappeared Dad: Who Chen's father and Yan Lin's first husband was is still a mystery.
