* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Trusts [[spoiler:Morgan and Michael, who attempt and succeed in raping him, respectively.]]
** However he knows right away that there’s something off about [[spoiler:Michael (and only trusted him due to circumstance), Mary, and Joseph, as well as the whole town… so maybe not completely horrible as he just had a lapse in judgment due to stress.]]



* EyeScream: [[spoiler:The last illustration shows him with an eye that’s purely black except for a white pupil, the only pupil shown in the entire book, and it’s leaking some kind of black substance—or, possibly, cracking his face open. It’s implied to be the eye that keeps showing up everywhere.]]
** [[spoiler:And at certain angles that eye looks like [[ParanoiaFuel it’s looking at you.]]]]

* PsychopathicManchild: [[spoiler:He makes it pretty clear that his mentality hasn’t progressed much further than his eleven year old self’s, which could lead someone to believe that the actual child self that shows up is the more mature of the two.]]

* BigEgoHiddenDepths: His attitude, flashy smile, and [[spoiler:attempt to rape Christopher]] make him look like a narcissist, and he might be, but he’s also [[spoiler:dealing with the guilt of having to drug his brother to keep him alive, the creeping feeling that something isn’t right, and the idea that at any given moment Matthew might be trying to kill himself. His clear love for his brother and angst over the fact that he can’t save him, coupled with his ultimate acceptance of murder-suicide as the only answer, can make him a [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation highly sympathetic character for some]].]]

* FunctionalAddict: [[spoiler:He seems to have no issues running the deli despite his brother constantly drugging him up, but the one time we do see him is when his brother has just visited (so the drugs might not be affecting him yet).]]
** [[spoiler:Alternatively, Morgan said to Christopher that Matthew developed resistances to the drugs he was given, and he kept having to give him stronger stuff. We see Matthew maybe a day or two before Morgan kills him with lethal injection, so he might be resistant enough to whatever he was on to the point of functioning normally]]



* EvilRedhead: [[spoiler:She is a serial killer after all, though it’s debatable if she’s really evil in Wonderland since she thinks killing Christopher will prevent further misfortune… but she’s likely insane and would kill him anyway.]]

An odd man that Christopher meets early on in Wonderland. He is a vagrant with no particular place to call home, so the town sheriff often arrests him just to give him a place to stay for the night. Most of the other residents of the town are leery of him and he wears a perpetual smile. For the most part he appears to be, if not somewhat unwanted, an ally to Christopher. [[spoiler:That is, until TheReveal, which is that the whole world is being dreamed up by Michael and that it is his active goal to make Christopher suffer because of misguided anger towards him and the abuse that he suffered throughout his life. The other characters are leery of him because they are his murder victims, and some of them have begun to realize that he controls the strings on their existence.]]

An odd couple that run the local grocery store and live in what seems to be a doll house. They are obsessed with dolls and offer Christopher fake cake when he visits them. [[spoiler:They are actually doll monsters, not real humans… or at least not as real as the likes of Prima, Matthew, Christopher, etc.]]

Added DiffLines:

!!Christopher Robinson

The main character and protagonist, Christopher is a kind young man who works at Woodrow Children’s Asylum almost purely out of the goodness of his own heart, since he’s definitely not getting paid near enough. Though he treats all of the children well he shows favoritism toward Mickey, who he thinks is a little more withdrawn and antisocial, and encourages him to try group activities with the other children. He does his best to understand Mickey’s cryptic messages and genuinely seems to try to put the boy’s wellbeing above his own most of the time.
----
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Christopher puts up with a lot over the course of the book and when he’s finally had it [[spoiler:he threatens Mary and Joseph at gunpoint without much of a word to them other than demanding an explanation.]]
%% * BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:Pretty much the whole point of the game is torturing and mentally breaking Christopher.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: So much so that his is the only backstory not directly stated. If you pay close attention, there are strong hints that [[spoiler:Christopher is a sex worker of some kind.]]
%% * HookerWithAHeartOfGold
%% * FriendToAllLivingThings: At least the things that aren’t trying to kill him which doesn’t leave much
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Trusts [[spoiler:Morgan and Michael, who attempt and succeed in raping him, respectively.]]
** However he knows right away that there’s something off about [[spoiler:Michael (and only trusted him due to circumstance), Mary, and Joseph, as well as the whole town… so maybe not completely horrible as he just had a lapse in judgment due to stress.]]
%% * MessianicArchetype
* PapaWolf: And how. While he is shown to have a particular helping of this for Mickey, [[spoiler:even shielding him from children ghosts turned demon spawn at risk of his own life,]] flashbacks show that he was this for all of the children at Woodrow Asylum, and all children in general.
* UndyingLoyalty: [[spoiler:Even when Michael reveals all he’s done that should make Christopher hate him, all Christopher really feels is sorrow and disappointment in what the kid he remembers turned into. He could never hate Mickey/Michael the way the others do even when he’s mad at him.]]

!!Mickey Walters

Christopher’s ‘white rabbit.’ Mickey is a shy and antisocial young boy, but is close with Christopher. He often says strange or cryptic things that Christopher then tries to decipher and often gets upset when he isn’t understood. Despite this, he seems to be genuinely interested in helping Christopher.
----
%% * CreepyChild
%% * DeliberatelyCuteChild: To Christopher at least
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:He’s part of Michael’s psyche, which means that despite having the appearance of a child he is at least as old as Michael]].
%% * TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior

!!Michael“Mickey” Walters

An odd man that Christopher meets early on in Wonderland. He is a vagrant with no particular place to call home, so the town sheriff often arrests him just to give him a place to stay for the night. Most of the other residents of the town are leery of him and he wears a perpetual smile. For the most part he appears to be, if not somewhat unwanted, an ally to Christopher. [[spoiler:That is, until TheReveal, which is that the whole world is being dreamed up by Michael and that it is his active goal to make Christopher suffer because of misguided anger towards him and the abuse that he suffered throughout his life. The other characters are leery of him because they are his murder victims, and some of them have begun to realize that he controls the strings on their existence.]]
----
%% * ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Even the MessianicArchetype doesn’t like him
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:He is perpetually trapped inside his mind with only figments of his imagination resembling real people, with just enough of themselves left to know not to trust or like him, even Christopher.]]
%% * AxCrazy: [[spoiler:Goes a bit nuts on Prima and Terceira, who are also AxCrazy.]]
* TheChessmaster: Pulls a bit of a gambit to [[spoiler:get Christopher to sleep with him, but it’s not that impressive once you find out that he can control anyone he wants to anyway.]]
* TheDreaded: Essentially all of the other characters dislike or are uneasy around Michael, and Prima goes as far as to say he’s worse than all the monsters on the island.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:The last illustration shows him with an eye that’s purely black except for a white pupil, the only pupil shown in the entire book, and it’s leaking some kind of black substance—or, possibly, cracking his face open. It’s implied to be the eye that keeps showing up everywhere.]]
** [[spoiler:And at certain angles that eye looks like [[ParanoiaFuel it’s looking at you.]]]]
%% * AGodAmI: Seems to be his general attitude.
* JerkassGod: [[spoiler:Despite certain limitations, such as having been locked up in his own mind by [[EldritchAbomination something more powerful]], he certainly is something of a god in his own world and is slowly breaking out of it.]]
* MisanthropeSupreme: [[spoiler:His backstory makes it sound like he started out as a WellIntentionedExtremist, albeit definitely unhinged, who only hunted after serial killers and anyone else he thought of as bad. The special edition reveals both that he killed Matthew by accident and that he has no problems with murdering anyone who gets close enough to Woodrow. So if he didn’t start as this, he definitely has these tendencies now.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: [[spoiler:He makes it pretty clear that his mentality hasn’t progressed much further than his eleven year old self’s, which could lead someone to believe that the actual child self that shows up is the more mature of the two.]]
* RealityWarper: [[spoiler:He controls the dream world, so he can basically do whatever he wants in it, whether it’s manipulating the landscape or people’s minds.]]
%% * SlasherSmile
%% * UnreliableNarrator
%% * WalkingSpoiler
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:There’s evidence that he may have started out his killing spree as this, but it’s very contestable that he stayed this way for very long before finding enough fault with the entire human race to justify killing everyone he met.]]

!!Morgan Godwin

Town sheriff of Wonderland. He has an apparently very charming smile and is fairly laidback. He helps out Christopher very early on by giving him a place to stay and some very basic information about the island.
----
%% * BigBrotherInstinct: To Matthew of course. [[spoiler:And he takes it to extremes.]]
* BigEgoHiddenDepths: His attitude, flashy smile, and [[spoiler:attempt to rape Christopher]] make him look like a narcissist, and he might be, but he’s also [[spoiler:dealing with the guilt of having to drug his brother to keep him alive, the creeping feeling that something isn’t right, and the idea that at any given moment Matthew might be trying to kill himself. His clear love for his brother and angst over the fact that he can’t save him, coupled with his ultimate acceptance of murder-suicide as the only answer, can make him a [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation highly sympathetic character for some]].]]
%% * BrokenAce
%% * DepravedBisexual
* MrExposition: Like his brother, one of Morgan’s early uses is telling Christopher information about the island.

!!Matthew Godwin

A young man who runs the town deli and takes care of the cat, Cheshire. He is very friendly and intrigued by the outside world. He asks Christopher many questions about where he came from and in return gives Christopher a lot of information about the island’s inhabitants.
----

* FunctionalAddict: [[spoiler:He seems to have no issues running the deli despite his brother constantly drugging him up, but the one time we do see him is when his brother has just visited (so the drugs might not be affecting him yet).]]
** [[spoiler:Alternatively, Morgan said to Christopher that Matthew developed resistances to the drugs he was given, and he kept having to give him stronger stuff. We see Matthew maybe a day or two before Morgan kills him with lethal injection, so he might be resistant enough to whatever he was on to the point of functioning normally]]
* MrExposition: The only time he actually appears is pretty much just to tell Christopher about the island’s inhabitants and then point him in the direction of where he needs to go next.
%% * StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:Type A]]

!! Primrose “Prima” Mc Clatchey

Prima is energetic, loud, a bit of a heavy drinker, and not shy of a fight—so it’s no wonder that she’s in charge of the island’s bar. She lives in the amusement park with Terceira and makes a hobby out of killing the various monsters that roam the woods beyond the town, and any monsters in the town as well.
----
* ActionGirl: She takes out the Jabberwock, a giant mechanical poisonous clown-headed spider, pretty much by herself. Christopher was hardly even able to stun it. And she makes a ‘‘hobby’’ of hunting down all of the island’s monsters like this.
%% * BraidsOfAction
* EvilRedhead: [[spoiler:She is a serial killer after all, though it’s debatable if she’s really evil in Wonderland since she thinks killing Christopher will prevent further misfortune… but she’s likely insane and would kill him anyway.]]
%% * FieryRedhead
* IAmAHumanitarian: [[spoiler:The special edition reveals that Prima didn’t eat her victims until she met Terceira, but she’s perfectly fine with it after.]]
%% * LightningBruiser
%% * TomboyishPonytail

!!Terceira Garcia

A former beauty pageant queen, she doesn’t say very much and always has her face hidden behind a veil. She lives in the amusement park with Prima and wields a chainsaw.
----
* BlueBlood: Wears fancy dresses and seems to have come from a very wealthy family, as well as her status as a beauty ‘queen’.
* EvilMakesYouUgly: The reason why she hides her face behind a veil is [[spoiler:Abel burned her face with acid, and was only able to do so because he managed to track her and Prima’s killing spree to find her.]]
%% * GirlyGirl
%% * IAmAHumanitarian
* LongHairIsFeminine: Prima has fairly long hair, but GirlyGirl counterpart Terceira’s hair is much longer.

!!Abel Garcia

A young man once famous for growing blue roses. He hasn’t been seen in quite some time.
----

* TheUnfought: [[spoiler:His plant monster takes his place since he’s already been killed and eaten by Prima and Terceira; the fact that his plant monster exists is pretty strong evidence that if he were around he’d be an antagonist too.]]

!!Cheshire

A black and white tuxedo cat with a missing eye and a crooked jaw that twists its face into a perpetual smile. He is the beloved pet of Matthew and roams about the island seemingly undisturbed by the monsters.
----

%% * CheshireCatGrin: Of course
%% * EverythingsCuterWithKittens

!! Mary and Joseph Hope

An odd couple that run the local grocery store and live in what seems to be a doll house. They are obsessed with dolls and offer Christopher fake cake when he visits them. [[spoiler:They are actually doll monsters, not real humans… or at least not as real as the likes of Prima, Matthew, Christopher, etc.]]
----
%% * AbusiveParents: To countless children, [[spoiler:including Mickey]]
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:Their transformation into doll monsters certainly doesn’t sound pleasant, but it’s debatable whether or not they can actually feel pain.]]
* ColorMotif: Pink, a subversion this time since the last thing Mary and Joseph represent is love… rather it’s the romanticized view of a ‘perfect life’
%% * StepfordSmiler
