played by Gwenlyn CumynA member of the Inseparables, and a freshman at Dumas university. Her main ambition is to join the Mu Sigma Theta sorority and follow in her grandmother's footsteps. The series' counterpart to D'artagnan.
- Adaptational Nice Guy: The original D'artagnan was decidedly heroic and brave, but he was also a Hot-Blooded Jerkass who thought nothing of stepping on and using people, breaking solemn promises, chasing after married women, and even committing sexual assault by fraud. While Dorothy is by no means a saint, the Jerkass qualities have been heavily toned down (and the sexual assault part dropped completely). She does have a tendency to get carried away and go too far, but she'll always get a Heel Realization and try to make amends.
- Adorkable: So so much, especially when she's being needlessly dramatic or any time she's talking to Connie.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: confirmed in season 2 
- Bi the Way: Dorothy is proudly bi, along with the Inseparable allaroundgreatbi
- Buffy Speak: Dorothy falls into this at times:
- "I am fighting against slut shaming, and body un-positivi body negativity!"
- Hot-Blooded: She's got a temper, and is quick to threaten violence on anyone who riles her up... though she's got a stronger moral core than her literary counterpart, and she tries to keep that part of her in check.
- It's All My Fault: Dorothy blames herself for being used and tricked by Miller despite Alex's warnings that he was a bad person. She found out that Miller actually works for Rick and that he delivers Rick's threats.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Mostly an uninitentional jerk. She means well, it's just that her temper often gets the better of her, and she's not terribly good at thinking of the consequences to her actions.
- The Lad-ette: Dorothy likes to play video games, flirting with pretty girls, and tends to get into fights with people who mess with her or her friends.
played by Alejandra SimmonsA Mu Sigma Theta sister with a bit of a Dark and Troubled Past who nevertheless has a tendency to play Team Mom to her group of friends. The series' counterpart to Athos.
- The Alcoholic: Downplayed, but she spends much of the latter half of Season One drunk, in order to cope with her troubles and growing depression.
- Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: Usually the Only Sane Woman of the group... except when she's drunk.
- Broken Bird: She's revealed to be this. On the surface, she's cool, calm and collected, if a little distant and not good at opening up to people. Underneath it all, she's struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Her past with Miller has left some serious mental scars.
- Only Sane Woman: With a side-order of The Stoic. She generally tries to keep the other girls in line, which is why they've taken to call her "Mom."
- Team Mom: And how. It's even her nickname.
played by Claire Gagnon-KingThe sweetest and friendliest member of the Mu Sigma Theta sorority. The series' counterpart to Porthos.
- Adaptational Wimp: Well, none of the characters in this series are the warriors that their literary counterparts were, but it's especially noticable in Portia, because Porthos in the original book was such a Boisterous Bruiser and a braggart who loved a good fight and could take on a dozen men. Portia is non-confrontational, very modest, and initially has problems standing up for herself... though she gets better over the course of the series.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She's the sweetest, kindest and friendliest of the girls, and at times her good nature leads her to become a bit of a pushover... that's until the others go to far. She becomes furious at Dorothy, Ariana, and Miller and after learning that they planted heroin inside Rick's office. She then breaks up with Ariana and leaves the group."Oh, ha-ha, there goes Portia again, not understanding anything! Let's all laugh at her instead of explaining! How adorable!"
- The Ditz: Deconstructed. She is a little ditzy and naive, but she gets increasingly uncomfortable and frustrated with being patronized and just called "adorable" instead of being taken seriously.
- Pink Means Feminine: Portia wears a pink onesie with bunny ears during a sleepover with Dorothy, Alex, and Ariana.
- The Pollyanna: Deconstructed on about the same level as The Ditz trope. Portia is cheery and determined to look on the bright side, but she does have her breaking point. And since she has been repressing all the negative thoughts and just been trying to ignore or smile through everything that bothers her, she breaks hard.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Portia is the Girly Girl to Ariana's Tomboy.
Henry Abascale (originally Ariana Henries)
played by Angie LopezPortia's lover, an exellent hacker and Deadpan Snarker with a pretty big ruthless streak. Comes out as transgender between seasons one and two. The series' counterpart to Aramis.
- Awesome Mc Coolname: After transitioning, he changes his last name to Abascale.
- Deadpan Snarker: Might, on a very rare occasion, respond with sarcasm.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's got a huge ruthless streak, will go farther than most when it comes to revenge, and is constantly insulting and putting other people down. But as it turns out, this is mostly a self-defense mechanism, and he pretends to be a lot more cynical and amoral than he really is.
- Stepford Snarker: Seems like this at first, but it's ultimately Subverted: When things get bad, that's when he stops making biting comments.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Ariana was the Tomboy to Portia's Girly Girl, especially considering
- Transgender: Comes out at trans and makes the full transition between seasons 1 and 2.
played by Dan MousseauDorothy's boyfriend, briefly, who turns out to have a Dark and Troubled Past and not be entirely trustworthy. The series' counterpart to Milady D'Winter.
- Adaptational Jerkass: Despite having fewer lives on his conscience, he somehow manages to be even more of a terrible person than his literary counterpart.
- Dark and Troubled Past: When Miller was in high school, his parents died. He didn't want to live in a group home and he didn't want to live with Rochefort's family. So he began to live on the streets to survive.
- Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: He had a pretty rough life, but Dorothy still doesn't forgive him his terrible behavior.
- Given Name Reveal: Miller's name was revealed to actually be Anton, the street kid that Alex dated back in high school.
- It's All About Me: One of his most prominent traits. Even in Season 2, when he makes a brief return to apologize to Alex, it's mainly for his own peace of mind and not because he's concerned about her.
- Manipulative Bastard: Part and parcel of being the series' versions of Milady D'Winter He was using Dorothy, Alex, Portia, and Ariana to break into Rick's office. Miller wanted to steal the dirt that Rick had on his past crimes.
- Street Urchin: See Dark and Troubled Past above.
Constance "Connie" Bonacieux
played by Linnea Currie-RobertsDorothy's roommate, whom she has a big crush on. The series' counterpart to, well, Constance Bonacieux.
- Adaptation Name Change: The only character in the series to avert this, as she's named the same as her literary counterpart. She usually goes by her nickname "Connie," though.
- Adorkable: Every character has heavy shades of this, but Connie and in particular especially when in concert with Dorothy.
- Nice Girl: She's a genuinely nice person, being one of the few character with absolutely no Jerkass moments.
- Spared by the Adaptation: Constance in the original novel was killed by Milady. Here, she was never in any danger of being killed by Miller, and though it's teased that she might have to leave Dumas University at the end of season one, ultimately this doesn't happen.
played by Denise YuenThe recruitment counciller for Mu Sigma Theta. The series' counterpart to Captain Treville.
- Action Girl: When she thinks she hears burglars or intruders in the dead of night, she goes to check while brandishing a sword.Ariana: Were you gonna challenge the burglar to a duel?
Treville: Well. A Mu Theta Sigma sister should be well-rounded.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: A little stiff and awkward at times, but helpful and willing to hear people out.
- Not So Above It All: In the last episode, she joins in on the play-fight with the other girls.
played by Damien DoeppingA member of the student union and Dorothy's arch-nemesis early in season one. The series' counterpart to Comte de Rochefort.
- HeelFace Turn: He can still be abrasive, but after he stops being someone else's lackey he actually turns out alright. He even works with Dorothy and the others in season 2.
- In-Series Nickname: At first, when Dorothy doesn't know his name, she just refers to him as "Douchecanoe." Later on, after his name is revealed, she (and the Inseparables) take to call him "Douchefort."
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He may occasionally seem like he's willing to do the decent thing... though he probably has an angle with it. At least until Character Development kicks in and he spends Season 2 as a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
- Took a Level in Kindness: In Season 2. Where most of the other characters Took a Level in Jerkass for this season, Owen went the opposite way and is a much kinder and more considerate person. Seems like getting away from Miller really helped.
The InseperablesDorothy's online friends. They mainly communicate with the characters (and the audience) through on-screen text messages. They don't really have any literary counterparts, but can be said to be a stand-in for the Musketeers as a whole, as a group of friends who are loyal to and look out for each other.
- Asexuality: Canonicallyace. It's right there in her screen-name.
- Chivalrous Pervert: They're the source of lot of double entendres and dirty commentary, but they all try to look out for Dorothy.
- Deadpan Snarker: Most of them get rather snarky at times, especially Breton.
- Fake Crossover: Several of them are implied to be characters from other web series. Fans usually agree on these:
- Cookiemonster is Laura Hollins from Carmilla.
- Canonicallyace is Beth March from The March Family Letters.
- Sica_inimicis is Jacob Santiago from The Soliloquies of Santiago.
- Allaroundgreatbi is Peter Pedro Donaldson from Nothing Much To Do and Lovely Little Losers.
- Emblue is Emma Woodhouse from Emma Approved.
- Worstdanceever is Lizzie Bennet from The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
- The Gadfly: Breton, who's just a little too fond of annoying everyone else.
- Greek Chorus: Through on-screen text, no less!
- Grumpy Bear: Sica_inimicis tends to complain and make sour comments when everyone else is joking around and having fun. Breton too plays this role on occasion, especially in tandem with Sica_inimicis... though he's more likely to just Troll the others with inappropriate remarks.
- Hero of Another Story: Even ignoring the Fake Crossover aspect, their comments do occasionally give glimpses into their own lives, showing that they have their own stories going on. Perhaps most noticable is the romance that develops between Emblue and Monochrome.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Breton makes lots of inappropriate comments and loves to rile everyone up, but when push comes to shove he's a loyal and generous person. Sica_inimicis is amoral and grouchy, but like Breton will be there for the others when needed.
- Nice Girl: Canonicallyace. Which shouldn't come as any surprise, since she's all but stated to be Beth from The March Family Letters.
- Only Sane Man: Allaroundgreatbi, and to a lesser extent Canonicallyace and Sassyinspanish, are most often the ones trying to talk the others out of their most hare-brained schemes. Usually with no luck.
- Phrase Catcher: "Shut up, Breton."
- Shipper on Deck: Several, but Emblue is the most enthusiastic about shipping the various people.
- Seinfeldian Conversation: When not playing The Watson or helping out with plot-related info, they often have these kinds of conversations among themselves.
- The Ghost: We don't get to see or hear them, as they communicate through on-screen text messages.
- Meaningful Name: Since they're all known by their Internet handles, this is clearly intended in-universe. For instance, Chiefofmemes does make a lot of memetic quotes.
- The Watson: Collectively they play this role, as the on-screen characters often have to explain what's been going on to them. It's used effectively at the start of Season 2, when Cookiemonster returns to the chat after a few months' absence with the explanation that she's been "travelling", so that Dorothy can bring her up to speed on all that's happened between seasons.
- played by Erin Eldershaw
- Ascended Extra: The Ghost in the first season, major character in the second season.
- Broken Pedestal: Dorothy spends the first season and the beginning of the second season utterly idolizing her... at the end of the second season, though? Not so much.
- It's All About Me: Her fatal flaw. It's not that she doesn't care about other people, it's more that she tends to not consider them, on a personal level.
Christine "Monty" Montcliff
played by Marina MoreiraConnie's absent long-distance girlfriend for most of season one, her very present ex in season two. The series counterpart to Monsieur Bonacieux.
- Ascended Extra: Like Anne, she's The Ghost in the first season, but becomes a recurring character in the second season.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Anyone who thought Portia was ditzy have not seen Monty in action. She is not all there.
- Dumbass Has a Point: It takes Monty, of all people, to figure out that Roquefort's camera isn't working because the lens cap was on.
- Innocently Insensitive: Oh, how much. She genuinely doesn't mean any harm, but that doesn't stop her from saying the most inappropriate and hurtful things.
Rick LiuThe avsurdly powerful president of the student council. The series' counterpart to Cardinal Richelieu.
- Absurdly Powerful Student Council: Taken to the extreme in this case.
- Big Bad: Kind of, in season one.
- Demoted to Extra: He plays a much smaller role in the plot than the Cardinal did in the original book.
- The Ghost: Unlike Anne and Monty, he never appears on-screen... though wer do briefly hear his voice on one of the recordings from Rouchefort's office.
- Large Ham: In his voice-only appearance, when he yells at Rouchefort. He's really fond of creative and theatrical insults.
