Webcomic / Paradox
A BL webcomic about two guys, Tommy and Dake, from opposing factions. They are both taken prisoner and sold as slaves. Dake is bought by a cool rich lady, but Tommy is bought by an Eldritch Abomination
- All There in the Manual: The Wikia is a good source of information about the characters... as long as you don't mind Spoilers aplenty.
- Ambiguous Innocence: Utisz is supposedly not evil but innocent.
- Badass Grandpa: Horus.
- The Big Guy: Dake. Loves his sweets and possesses borderline Super Strength.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Tommy and Dake.
- Demonic Possession: Utisz needs a human body to live in, since this offers some protection from sunlight.
- Depraved Bisexual: Jack. Doesn't stop him from being hot as hell, though.
- Early Installment Weirdness: The beginning of the comic compared to rest. Art Evolution not withstanding, Dake is not chubby, he doesn't seem to possess his super strength, and Tommy is much more... aggressive than in later chapters.
- Eldritch Abomination: Utisz certainly thinks he's this. However, unless he's been hiding it well, he's nowhere near as powerful as most examples.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Hidukul
- Jigsaw Puzzle Plot: Tommy and Dake's relationship may take center stage, but the backstories of the various characters, the political climate and overall cosmology are only revealed bit by bit.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Horus and Hidukul.
- Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Tommy . . . Sort of.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Horus.
- Our Souls Are Different: Color-Coded for Your Convenience, no less.
- Blue: Good souls that can pass on without regrets.
- Yellow: Morally ambiguous souls that have sinned, but can still find redemption.
- Red: Evil souls beyond hope.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Cain. Subverted since the man himself is a Nice Guy Woobie - the real problem is Utisz.
- Never Found the Body: Draco.
- Technical Pacifist: Dake.
- Really Gets Around: Tommy.
- Actually an odd case. Tommy is actually borderline Asexual - sex isn't really that big of a deal for him. A case of Truth in Television since not everyone who engages in wanton consensual sex actually enjoys it.
- Rape as Backstory: Hidukul.
- Seme: Averted. The author went out of her way to make the main pairing as equal as possible.
- Start of Darkness: Utisz was a neutral being whose job was to carry souls to their destination; that is until he accidentally swallowed one.
- ...though this happened after he met Tommy's mom and fell for her hard.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Jack
- Uke: Averted. See Seme, above.
- Yandere: Cain believes Utisz is this for Tommy. He's not. It's Tommy's dead mother he's crazy for.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Literally in the case of Dake.
