Characters from ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan''


[[folder:Main Characters]]
!! Yorick Brown

%%* AboveTheInfluence
* ActionSurvivor: The series-long theme. His specialities are English, prestidigitation and ''failing'' to train helper monkeys: his world is in the midst of an apocalypse.
* AmIJustAToyToYou: To Beth II.
* AnimalMotifs: Monkeys
* CelibateHero: Initially. And what he would like to be, in spite of his one-night stand with Beth II.
* DeathSeeker: He grows out of it, though, thanks to an intervention.
* EscapeArtist: Pretty much his schtick when he isn't trying to get himself killed.
* FeigningIntelligence: At least from Hero's point of view.
* GasMaskLongcoat: How the last man on Earth gets by on a world full of women that either wanted to kill him or screw him. The mask becomes something of a [[ChekovsGun Chekov's gun]] in the final volume.
* GrammarNazi: "You split more infinitives than Gene Roddenberry."
* TheImmune: The event that wiped out every other man missed him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yorick can be a real dick, but generally means well and cares for others.
* LastOfHisKind: At least, so it would seem.
%%* TheMcCoy
* MeaningfulName: This was intentional. His parents were English majors and fans of 'the Bard'.
* NightmareDreams: Boy,. does he have them.
* NonActionSnarker
* PaperThinDisguise: He doesn't try particularly hard to make himself look more feminine. At one point, he even lets himself grow a goatee.
%%* PrepositionsAreNotToEndSentencesWith
* [[spoiler:RapeAsBackstory: Was sexually assaulted by another boy when he young, he received therapy and seems to have mostly recuperated from the trauma.]]
* SadClown: [[spoiler: Similar to StepfordSmiler, below, not that he is fooling anyone.]]
* StealthHiBye
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler: It takes a brutal intervention for him to admit that he's suicidal.]]
* [[spoiler:SuicideByCop: Because he can't do it himself, he gets himself into situations where somebody could do it for him.]] Though it doesn't last.
* SurvivorGuilt: [[spoiler: You. Don't. Say.]]
* TheOneGuy: The ''last'' guy.
* TeenyWeenie: The reaction shots of the few women who end up in this situation are CringeComedy.

* OrphansOrdeal: [[spoiler: Her parents and sisters were killed in a car accident.]]
* OvertOperative: Having a number for a name doesn't help you blend in anywhere. Especially when you introduce yourself to everyone as such.

* SimpleStaff: Her [[WeaponOfChoice weapon of choice]] is an extendable baton.

--> '''Yorick:''' "Dr. Men..."
%%* DressedToHeal
* DrJerk
* MeaningfulRename[=/=]ShedTheFamilyName: Her original name is Ayuko Matsumori. She did it to piss off her dad. "I chose the most faux-Chinese thing I could think of: Mann's Chinese Theatre.."
* LoveHurts: Saying she had a pretty crappy love life may be an understatement but her opinion on love changes when she eventually meets Rose.
--> '''Rose:''' I ''like'' you. I think I...
-->''(Allison gives her a [[ShutUpKiss shut up kiss]] and hugs her, smiling warmly and clearly happier than she had ever been)''
--> '''Mann:''' Just quit while you're ahead, okay?
** Then it starts to hurt all over again when it's revealed that Rose [[spoiler:was spying on them for the Royal Australian Navy]]. She forgives her, though.
* TheMedic
* MixedAncestry: Half Japanese and half Chinese.
* ShockValueRelationship: Her father interpreted her newfound sexuality as "lesbian until graduation".
** Also her College girlfriend.
--> '''Mercedes:''' Look, I am sorry, but we graduate in three weeks. It's time we at least start pretending that we are adults. I hate my old man just as much as you hate yours. But there are less juvenile ways to get revenge. Date a black guy or something.
--> '''Mann''': This isn't a game for me! I liked girls since I was ''four!''
* StraightGay: So straight gay that Yorick didn't figure it out until after a year of traveling together, and only ''then'' after she gave him a hint that she was into girls.
* TrulySingleParent: Gave birth to her own clone at the moment of the gendercide, and believed it was the cause of it.
* WhenSheSmiles: She only ever smiles, like, twice in the entire series but when she
* [[spoiler:YourDaysAreNumbered: An unforeseen side-effect of trying to clone herself was the development of several tumors in her womb. The womb was removed however, saving her life.

* [[spoiler:CrusadingWidow]]: It's never outright stated that she and Allison get married in the future but they were still very much together, and after Allison [[spoiler:passes away]] Rose takes up her torch, as it were, and [[spoiler:works with "Dr. Men" in finding a cure to the gendercide.]]
* EasilyForgiven: By Yorick anyway, after she accidentally reveals to Allison that she was [[spoiler: spying on them]]. 355 comes around soon after, however, but Allison understandably took it the hardest. She does forgive her, though.
* EyepatchOfPower: She lost her eye in a firefight some time before she is introduced.
* FireForgedFriends: Literally.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After [[LoveRedeems falling in love with]] [[InLoveWithTheMark Allison]].]]

!! Natalya Zamyatin

* CassandraTruth: The Amazons dismiss her as yet another lunatic when she explains there are men in space. Turns out it was a case of [[spoiler: ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts]]
* EloquentInMyNativeTongue
* FriendlySniper
* NamedWeapon: Her rifle "Rodya", named after her husband.
* ShoutOut: Her surname, "Zamyatin", is one to Yevgeny Zamyatin, author of [[Literature:We|We]], the novel which directly inspired both Huxley to write ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'' (although he denied it), and for Orwell to write ''1984'' (in [[ a review of WE]], Orwell called Huxley out for it)

[[folder: Antagonists]]
!! Victoria
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Subverted. She's' built up as a recurring villain and with her minor army of amazons she looks to be a real threat. Then some ex meth-addict puts an ax into her head.]]
* TheCorrupter: She sure does a number on Hero during the first year post-gendercide.
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHim]]: Pretty much.
* FourEyesZeroSoul
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Towards men in general, but is only able to make it a "you" instead of "they" when Yorick's around.
* StarterVillain
* StrawFeminist
* StrawHypocrite: Depending if you believe her stories about her being able to defeat world-renowned chess champions at 13 but having been banned from public competition because she was a woman or not, she may be this. But she definitely plays it straight by applauding the death of the male gender for the way they oppressed women and twisted feminine virtues against them when she does ''exactly the same thing''. It gets worse when you consider her cult-like emotional manipulation of many women who were victims of abuse or rape, making her no different than the men that hurt them.

!! Alter Tse'elon ([[spoiler:Yedida]])

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: The depiction of this Jewish tradition/superstition is correct, except that "Alter" is the ''male'' form of "the old one", the female form would be "Alte".
** This is shown to be a subversion later, when, in a flashback, her commanding officer comments on her family's choice to name her old '''man'''. She insists it's what her father felt she looked like upon birth.
* BadassIsraeli: The lamentably [[spoiler:insane]] variation.
* BigBad: Arguably the biggest bad, at least as far as the comic series goes.
* DarkActionGirl
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: For all of the tragedy and heartbreak she has endured throughout her life, Alter seeks to die at the hands of the last man on earth.]]
--> '''Alter:''' [[spoiler: This isn't suicide. This is ''war''. After everything I've been through? Everything I've ''sacrificed''? I deserve to die in ''battle!'']]
* FemaleMisogynist: She wants to die a soldier's death, but believes it would be dishonorable to do so at the hands of a woman.
* GeneralRipper
* HeroKiller: Almost literally. Whenever she appears expect a sympathetic character to die.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Being a soldier runs in the blood for her family. Her grandmother operated behind enemy lines in the Israeli War of Independence, and her grand-mother was a member of a all-female Battalion of Death during the Russian Revolution.
** Averted with her older sister who was a pacifist and died in an accident while protesting the war. Alter lies she was killed by Palestinians.
* NotSoDifferent: Her spotlight issue shows how her lives paralleled Yorick's in many ways, in another series she would have been his soul mate. In this she is the BigBad and eventually his ArchNemesis.
* NoNameGiven: Her parents kept her name secret, so that Death [[IKnowYourTrueName could not find her]]. [[spoiler: Her true name is Yedida ("friend" in Hebrew).]]
* SuicideByCop: [[spoiler:She tries, but it turns out she [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim underestimated Yorick]]]].
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:When Yorick refuses to kill her.]]
-->'''Alter: It has to be ''you'' godammit! Fucking fight me! Why won't you act like what you are? [...] My name is not Alter, it's [[spoiler:Yedida]], sister of Rachel. And I am finished...finished running from the Angel of Death!


* ArrogantKungFuGuy: A killer ''and'' a JerkAss.
* DarkActionGirl
* {{Ninja}}
* SmokeOut
* ToThePain
* PsychoForHire

!! Dr. Matsumori

* ArchNemesisDad
* BigBad: Subverted. Again. Doctor M is indeed the closest thing the series has to a true BigBad but [[spoiler: is defeated before the story's actual climax.]]
* TheImmune
* MadScientist
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate
%%* ThereIsAnother
* WalkingSpoiler
%%* TrulySingleParent

!! The Setauket Ring
* EvilCounterpart: To the Culper Ring.
* HidingInAHijab: Their 'uniform,' as it were. Not that any of them are Muslim.


[[folder: Minor Characters]]
!! Beth II

!! The Hartle Twins

!! Agent 711
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Her final words to Yorick: "Happy endings have to be ''earned''."
* HeartbrokenBadass: Is an agent with the Culper Ring and misses her late husband.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Not that she was looking but after curing Yorick of his [[spoiler:[[SuicideByCop suicidal]] tendencies]] the last thing she did before dying was thank her killers, the Setauket Ring.
* SuicideByCop: Implied.
* TortureTechnician: How she manages to stop Yorick from trying to get himself killed, to the point of [[MindRape mind raping]] him by forcing him to dredge up some extremely harsh memories.
** She even threatens to rape him at one point, was close to doing it and then afterward admits to him that she would have done it, too.

!! [[spoiler:"Dr. Men"]]
* AsianAndNerdy: All of them, even the really punky one.
* CloningBlues: [[spoiler:All of them are clones of Dr. Allison Mann]].
* NotAsYouKnowThem: They are all as smart as [[spoiler:their progenitor]] was but [[spoiler:the original]] Yorick later comments that without Allison's "asshole dad" pushing them, they will never have her ''mind''.
