Added DiffLines:

* AntiClimaxBoss: InUniverse and {{Downplayed}}. Umbria is certainly very dangerous, but when Julie was first warned of Zaedalkah she was only told that it was a powerful imprisoned demon and was actually ''annoyed'' at learning its true identity, as she already knew that Zaedalkah was "just" a fiendish assassin when she expected something much more powerful. This doesn't mean Umbria is not dangerous nor a threat, but Julie was expecting something far worse. [[note]]The most likely explanation for this is that the author simply changed his mind about which direction to take the character of Umbria while writing the story[[/note]]

[[folder:Kergak]]
[[quoteright:163:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kergakimage_1004.png]]
'''Kergak'''

A dwarven fighter and soldier of the Souballan Empire, put under Umbria's command along with several other {{Mook}}s. In a hard-fought battle with some elves from Silverfronds, he was the only survivor among them, and proved to be fairly effective. He's stuck with Umbria and co. since.

* AnAxeToGrind: He got an enchanted one after the battle against the elves, and it turned out that he's actually more skilled with axes.
* ArrangedMarriage: The main reason he joined the Souballan Army was to get away from one of these.
* DumbMuscle: Kergak is a decent fighter, but tends to believe what anyone tells him, even if it's obviously wrong. Umbria is not above abusing this.
* MuaveShirt: He's the only survivor out of a group of {{Mook}}s, and has gained quite a bit of characterization since. Yet he doesn't have an entry on the official character sheets. Time will tell if this changes.
* MundaneUtility: Uses his high Strength along with his shield to act as a footstool for Trevoricus.




Added DiffLines:

* UltimateJobSecurity: Implied in a conversation with Umbria and co., as the Souballan Empire apparently doesn't have access to that many mages. So his skills are very valuable, even though he's not all that high a level (yet).

[[quoteright:123:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Umbria-ola_2672.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:123:[-You can trust her.-] ]]
'''Umbria/Zaedalkaah'''

->''"I'm as innocent as a child with a fresh, delicious heart."''

Umbria/Zaedalkaah is a secondary antagonist in the comic. She has had quite a bit of screen time, and has had many adventures on her quest to get her old body (and character classes?) back. Her quest is basically the [[TwoLinesNoWaiting B Plot]] of the entire comic.

* BackFromTheDead: Zaedalkaah's rebirth took the form of whatever revived him. Since it was Julie's form, he may also qualify as a GenderBender.
* BadassTeacher: When conventionally teaching her non-bard orchestra wasn't working so well, she opted to take them to Mr. Moriatos' practice dungeon for real combat/dungeon experience. She has helped twelve of her students gain their first bard level so far.
* BetaTestBaddie: Umbria was initially on a quest to regain her power and her true form, which this [[GenderBender female]] [[QuirkyBard bardic form]] isn't. Her former employers however, refuse to take her back due to her weakened state. She ultimately ends up stuck in the Souballo Empire, albeit with a high ranking position, and seems to have dropped this for now, though she is still trying to increase her influence.
* CardCarryingVillain: She's evil and knows it.
* CombatPragmatist: This combined with luck is how she's survived so long on her own.
* ConsummateLiar: Subverted somewhat. She ''thinks'' she's a great liar, but her lying isn't that great, and Jason and Trevoricus caught on and eventually kicked her out of the group.
* CoolTeacher: Many of her students seem to think this... when she's not being [[SadistTeacher really mean]] to them.
* DarkActionGirl: Quite excellent in combat, and evil.
* DeadpanSnarker: Definitely has her moments, and finding out Angelo's Kids is part of TheEmpire was probably the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny best one.]]
* DePower: Zaedalkaah's reincarnation required her to take Julie's class and levels, making her a Level 3 bard in the beginning. We see that her previous incarnation was stronger than this, to the point of being a famous assassin in the Brotherhood. The guild no longer wants her now that she's weak, so her main goal is to reclaim her lost power.
* EvilTwin: To Julie.
* EyeScream: She seems to like stabbing people in the eye with her Rapier.
* FanservicePack: Inverted just like with Angelika and Julie. Umbria gets a costume change starting from [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0350.html comic #350 onward]] which no longer shows off her legs.
* GenderBender: Umbria was originally a male, fiend touched being named Zaedalkaah, but was forced to reincarnate as an EvilTwin of the person who released him from his prison, Julie. She initially tries to recover her old body and class by requesting the help of the organization she once belonged to, [[FirstLawOfGenderBending but ends up thwarted and sidetracked]]. She takes her present form in stride, and [[SecondLawOfGenderBending finds Julie's good looks useful]] for manipulating people. For the time being at least, she has more or less settled for remaining this way.
* GildedCage: She was taken to Souballo HQ and, though in luxury, was forced to produce an anthem for the Souballo Empire.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: Umbria's character design is an "evil palette swap" of Julie's design. She lampshades this when talking to two evangelists of Angelo's Kids.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Umbria is extremely conceited and self-centered, using people around her at any opportunity to get ahead.
* {{Jerkass}}: During her travels with Trevoricus and Jason, she treats them like crap. When she gets voluntered to create the Souballo Empire's anthem, she treats her assigned orchestra like crap.
* MagicMusic: A much [[IncrediblyLamePun darker reprise]] to Julie's powers.
* ManipulativeBitch: She has used Jason's (and Trevoricus' to a lesser extent) attraction to her as well as their greed to get them to do whatever she wants. They wised up and tossed her out of the group.
* MusicalAssassin: Though in her past life, he was [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0175.html more traditional.]]
* NeutralEvil[[invoked]]: Doesn't have any bias for or against law, but is clearly evil.
* NonLethalKO: Thanks to a bungled move silently check, the [[RecurringCharacter Scroll Shop Wizard]] heard Zaedalkaah coming and promptly foiled the assassination by [[TakenForGranite petrifying him.]]
* PsychoticSmirk: Likes doing these a lot.
* PuttingOnTheReich: Starting with [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0350.html comic #350]] she seems to have embraced the dress code of TheEmpire.
* QuirkyBard: Albeit evil...
* RoyalRapier: Her weapon of choice.
* [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Evil in a Wand]]: Until Julie [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally released it]].
* SmugSnake: Anyone not more powerful than her she tends to treat like crap... and she's even snuck a few snide remarks at the more powerful people around her. She's shown to be very conceited and overconfident, even though most of her successes were due to dumb luck.
* TerribleTrio: With Trevoricus and Jason, until they [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0180.html kicked her out.]] But then Angelo forces them, along with Jane, to work together again for his own amusement.
* TheUnfettered: Umbria seems to be willing to do whatever it takes to reclaim her old power. She manipulates and lies to people, kills them, and has joined Angelo's Kids not because she believes in their dogma but because she believes it's a decent way to achieve her goals.

[[folder:Jason Moriatos]]
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jason-ola_968.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:197:[-Not too bright...-] ]]
'''Jason Moriatos'''

->''"Now that I think about it, a 3 vs 5 fight wasn't too smart anyway."''

Jason is a barbarian who was part of a three-person team of bandits who attacked Julie's group. They lost, and Jane was killed (though not by Julie's group). Umbria watched over them and joined the group. Jason seems to be attracted to Umbria and is fairly easily bent to her will.

* BadassNormal: Uses his strength and combat skills instead of magic.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Jason comes from an evil family. This may attribute to why he's such a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter.
** EvilMatriarch: Jason's mom [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0177.html is implied to be one.]]
** TykeBomb: According to Jason, his sister Sophia is pretty high levelled. She also [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0235.html works for Brian.]]
* BrainsAndBrawn: The brawn part, while Trevoricus is the brains.
* CaptainObvious: States some pretty obvious things during his and Trevoricus' travels with Umbria.
* TheDitz: Jason can be pretty friendly, but he isn't very bright.
* DumbMuscle: Jason doesn't strike the viewer as very smart.
* EpicFlail: Jason's [[WeaponOfChoice weapon of choice]] is a one-handed flail.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: He welcomed [[DarkActionGirl Umbria]] as the new leader of their little group with little question.
* SuperheroSchool: Jason graduated from "Olivia's school for Responsible Barbarians".
* TerribleTrio: With Trevoricus and Umbria.
* [[TokenGoodTeammate Token Good Family Member]]: Jason seems to be the least evil member of his family. He may also be a bit of a BlackSheep over this.
* TrueNeutral[[invoked]]: Doesn't have the chaos we've seen in Pauline, and goes along with whoever is commanding him.
* TheUnfavorite: Implied when compared to his sister, who has so much more power and so many more achievements.
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: Jason comes from an evil family. Jason has complained about them chiding Jason over not being more evil like them.

[[folder:Trevoricus]]
[[quoteright:161:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Trevoricus-ola_2729.jpg]]
'''Trevoricus'''

->''"Confuse a little human girl for a halfling ONCE and they never let it go!"''

Trevoricus is another part of Jane's team, before it was hijacked by Umbria. Trevoricus is a gnome wizard who is unliked by the law due to some unfortunate mistakes and indescretions he had with a young female human child. He is also the brains of the group, though he too passively follows Umbria's selfish and crazy schemes.

* EightiesHair: When he talked about [[FlashBack his past]] he was shown with a [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0176.html pretty epic '80s mullet.]]
* ActionSurvivor: In his backstory comic, he tells that he fled when his [[DoomedHometown hometown was destroyed]] by the [[EvilEmpire Souballo Empire.]]
* BrainsAndBrawn: The brains part.
* CowardlyLion: He's not known for his guts and knows it. It took him over 100 pages of comic to confront Umbria with her jerkassery. Thanks to help from Jane's Ghost, he [[CharacterDevelopment gets over his cowardice]], confronts Umbria and kicks her out of the group.
* MistakenForPedophile: He eventually explains that the "molestation accident" was him mistaking a human child for a halfling adult; he had good reason for that, since he was traveling with a caravan of halflings.
* OurGnomesAreWeirder: He is a gnome, and they are short, yellow-skinned humanoids with pointy tails.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: In the tale of his past, we can see him rapping [[Film/TeenWitch "Top That"]] with two other guys. It's as awful as it sounds.
* TheResenter: Towards Jason at times in regards to his success with women (or supposed success with Umbria).
* RunningGag: Umbria ribbing him over the whole accidental attempted child sex thing. Though the [[DudeNotFunny only one who finds that funny]] is Umbria herself.
* SquishyWizard: Trevoricus has the least amount of physical strength in the trio.
* TerribleTrio: With Jason and Umbria.
* TrueNeutral[[invoked]]: Not so much as a philosophy but that he's wishy-washy this way.

[[folder:Jane]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jane_8069.jpg]]
'''Jane'''

->''"You can't fight us with all that crap on your back!"''

Jane was the former leader of a small adventuring group that waylaid Julie's group. They tried to bluff Julie that some treasure Julie's group found earlier was theirs. The bluff failed and they fought Julie's group for the swag instead, but that also failed. Julie's group spared the trio, but Jane was killed by Umbria/Zaedalkaah while Jason and Trevoricus were unconcious in order to usurp Jane's position in the group. However, recently she has come back as a ghost and appeared before Trevoricus. The two work together to defeat Umbria and kick her out of the group, so Jane can take her spot as leader back.

* ActionGirl: Even as a ghost.
* BackFromTheDead: Story-wise, but played with, as she's still [[OurGhostsAreDifferent technically dead.]] Played straight later on. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the character page]], Angelo learned of her existence and, due to his dislike of ghosts, offered her an ultimatum: Be destroyed, or be resurrected and swear fealty to the Souballo Empire. She chose the latter.
* BadassNormal: Before she dies.
* CameBackStrong: Though ghosts have a couple of weaknesses, she gains some special powers and is harder to defeat outside of TurnUndead.
* ChaoticNeutral[[invoked]]: Being an unscrupulous thief.
* FogFeet: As a ghost.
* ForgottenFallenFriend: Jason does do something akin to an AlasPoorYorick speech about her, but other than that she's not mentioned afterword. It took [[CallBack 120 or so strips]], but she has come back.
* KilledOffForReal: Originally, but has come back as a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost,]] 120 pages later.
* LoveableRogue: Jane is fairly charismatic and sociable, but still a thief.
* NominalImportance: Double subverted with her death, and return as a ghost.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: She seems to be able to freely interact with living things.
* TwinTails
