Main Characters

     Neil "Nini" Bowman 
A demon boy who decides to flee to China where he's always dreamed of going.
  • Affectionate Nickname: He lets his friends call him Nini.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Neil tells Lily about his time at demon school and how he was looked down upon because he wasn't acting like any of the other demons, preferring to do good deeds over evil ones. He then somberly adds that he couldn't even call himself a proper demon and felt like an outcast that no one understood.
  • Animal Motif: Goats. He has goat horns and sometimes turns into one depending on the situation.
  • Badass Baritone: When Nick awakens his demon lord form.
  • Bad Liar: He's not good at hiding that he has a crush on Lily and when he tries to ask Ira for advice by pretending it's for a friend of his, he quickly slips up and runs away embarrassed.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: He pretty much instantly falls in love with Lily because she was one of the few people who admired his capacity for good instead of shunning it like the rest of his demon kin. Although the first time it was by accident thanks to Cupid, the story reveals he still crushes on her.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He easily beats up Nick and sets up the situation to look like he was attacking Neil.
  • Defence Mechanism Superpower: He will unconsciously summon flames to wreathe his body for self-protection, demonstrated when trying to capture the hell snake.
  • Evil Overlord: All of the other supernatural clans fear that Neil will become this, thus he must be under strict surveillance.
  • Friend to All Living Things: He adores animals and gladly works at a pet-shop where the animals regularly scratch him up. The main reason he goes to China is because he loves pandas.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Even though Neil isn't outwardly evil, holy items still burn him shown when Lynn thinks giving Neil a bible as a Christmas present was a good idea.
  • Light Is Good: This is his general color palette and he's an incredibly kind person.
  • Mystical White Hair: He has short white hair.
  • Nice Guy: Despite other monster representatives fearing that Neil will become the demon king, he is nothing but sweet and nice to everyone he meets. This also is what got him in trouble a lot during his school years since couldn't bring himself to do anything evil and feels he's not a real demon. He also refuses to leave Da Mao in his werewolf state even though he's late to meet up with Lily for their date.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Neil has horns and ears of a goat along with a red devil tail. Also when Lynn cleanses an area, he turns into a goat.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: At the end of the first season as Neil is sleeping his eyes snap open to reveal two glowing red eyes, likely his demonic powers slowly growing. When Neil awakens the Demon Lord, he has full red eyes.
  • The Runaway: He runs away from his home to China to live among humans since he felt it was better than living with demons whom he couldn't connect with. He still takes time to email his parents and let them know he's fine.
  • Shapeshifting: He is capable of doing so, and Humanshifted to get by in day to day life.
  • Ship Tease: He falls for Lily after she empathizes with him about feeling like an outsider and has a Crush Blush whenever he's around her.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Unlike his brother Nick who's rude, manipulative and mean to others, Neil is kind and accommodating towards others. Also while his color palette is fairly light, his brother's is darker.
  • Soul Eating: Neil's diet consists entirely of the souls of living things. This also includes plant life, in a variation on the trope.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He shares his mother's white hair.
  • Super Drowning Skills: When in water, Neil drops like a rock. Even shapeshifting into a body built for swimming doesn't save him.
  • Technicolor Fire: He can create purple flames sometimes at will.

     Ira Blood 
An English vampire who's also an otaku and an online friend of Nini's who offers him the spare room in the apartment.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: His casual appearance in the webcomic has him with paler skin, a rounder face, and a bit more facial hair. the donghua changes his appearance to make him look more obviously Western (elongated face, squarer jaw), in addition to giving him a new still-red hat.
  • Beginner's Luck: Ira intended on doing Luis a solid and play an extra for a movie, but despite his lack of acting experience he somehow stole the show and launched into national stardom, even receiving his own series along the way. He gives it up completely because he preferred the lower stakes of being an Internet content creator compared to the stress of big name fame.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In the donghua he's protective of Neil and when he sees him coming home all scratched up, he tearfully offers to give him money. When he stalks Neil to his workplace and find that he truly enjoys working there, he decides it's fine if Neil is happy.
    • He's also touched when Neil goes to ask him about falling in love while pretending it's for a friend.
  • Cute Little Fangs: He has a fang that pokes out of the side of his mouth.
  • Dark Is Evil: When he's tempted by Nick, he takes on a darker look to himself. Generally subverted whenever he goes back to his folks' home, as he's dressed in all blacks but he's still the same old Ira underneath.
  • Exhausted Eyebags: Likely due to his life as a streamer, he has bags under his eyes.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: He may be a vampire, but he's generally a nice person.
  • Fur Against Fang: His donghua counterpart seems to not really like Da Mao as he dragged him back to the apartment mainly to get rid of the hell snake and rabbit in his room. In the original webcomic, they do get along better.
  • Goth: His family keeps this as their cultural hat. Before moving to Beijing, Ira was also forced to rock a goth look in order to fit in with his folks, and wears similar outfits when he visits them.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: Casual Ira is a bit of a slob, with baggy hoodies, long plain shirts, and a red knit cap (with or without facial hair depending on the adaptation). When he has to act the part of his vampire heritage however, he goes from average streamer to gothic prettyboy in an instant.
  • Horror Hunger: If he goes too long without drinking any blood he'll start to attack anyone nearby. Neil nearly receives the sharp end of his teeth before managing to drag him outside to buy some blood boba for him.
  • NEET: He's described as one in season 2 by Nick as he points out Ira never worked a day in his life.
  • Nice Hat: He usually's seen wearing some kind of hat on his head. His hat from when he still lived with his parents was especially fancy.
  • Otaku: He chooses to become this full time after he decides to leave his family behind to pursue his interests in playing video games and streaming.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When he's put in full vampire mode thanks to Nick.
  • Shipper on Deck: He's all for Neil pursuing Lily and tries to give him some advice on how to woo her.
  • Vampires Are Rich: He comes from a very wealthy family, and he left behind amongst other things: a castle and a multinational company.
  • Vampires Sleep in Coffins: Like many vampires in-universe, he keeps a coffin in his room as a bed. Apparently this is a custom shared with all varieties of undead folk, including Abu and Luis.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: While he does drink real blood, it's shown that vampires in this modern society can get by drinking artificial blood too (one such station even acting as a bubble tea shop), and he tries not to drink directly from humans.
  • Weakened by the Light: If he goes outside in the day, Ira has to wear a lot of clothes that covers his body and a wide-brimmed hat.

     Lynn Angel 
An angel and landlord of the group's apartment who is a stickler for rules.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He keeps notes on Lily and Neil when they go on a date in the donghua and it's clear he's incredibly protective over Lily even threatening Neil at gunpoint.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nothing seems to go Lynn's way. He's on red alert with anything involving Lily, gets tricked by Nick on occasion, and put into humiliating situations often.
  • The Comically Serious: He rarely breaks from his stoic attitude, which leads to a lot of humor from others around him.
  • Comically Small Bribe: When the others refuse to dress up as angels for his Christmas card, he offers to give them a month free of rent. They immediately dress up and pose.
  • Did Not Think This Through: When he initially shows off his holy powers to Neil, he forgets that Neil and Ira are considered unholy, which turns them into their basic animal forms. He also seems to forget how giving a cross and bible for the two as Christmas gifts wasn't a good idea as the bible even burns Neil's hand when he touches it.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: He's the most responsible person in the 1031 apartment, whereas Lily is a bit more carefree and impulsive.
  • Gender-Blender Name: "Lynn" can be gender neutral and was used by men in the past, but nowadays it's more associated with girls.
  • Holy Halo: Like all angels of his type, he has a detachable halo floating above his head.
    • Mundane Utility: The thing's incredibly useful in the day to day, and can be used for anything like cleaning, electricity, or as a weapon.
  • Improbable Weapon User: He uses his halo when fighting or purifying an area and it works.
  • Light Is Good: He's an angelic being and normally dresses in light colors, so this is a given.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: The instant he realizes someone has feelings for Lily, Lynn becomes overprotective. Even if he likes Neil, Lynn does everything in his power to either make sure the latter doesn't end up with her, or failing that, doesn't hurt her.
  • Neat Freak: Most of his scenes show him cleaning something up, and prefers to keep the apartment as neat as possible. He will however get hasty when the landlord comes to inspect.
  • Parental Substitute: While on paper Lynn is Lily's brother, he was just gifted her by his teacher when she materialized. He does double duty as a father figure as well as an older brother figure from then on.
  • Stern Teacher: He makes sure his students follow his many rules (even when he doesn't exactly follow them), and at the apartment he does act like this towards the others who sometimes refer to him as "Lynn Laoshi".
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Where his sister Lily is extroverted and outgoing, he's introverted and more reserved.
  • The Stoic: His expression rarely changes, and his tone is usually calm and collected. When his cool facade does fade, it's usually due to a hilarious situation occurring.
  • Team Mom: He does most of the cooking and housework, the 1031 residents rely on him to resolve major disputes like a parent would, and he regularly scolds the rowdy lot when things go south. It helps that he's also a responsible older brother and teacher, so he's used to being an authority figure.
  • Winged Humanoid: He's an angel with the typical white wings.

     Vladimir Elliot Kirilenko / "Da Mao" 
A werewolf who lives in the apartment.
  • Adaptational Backstory Change: In the original webcomic he's already occupying the apartment and works as a programmer, but in the donghua he's sent to China to find Neil and keep tabs on him.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: He tries to protect Neil from Nick because Neil had been nothing but kind to him. When Nick asks if he was betraying his brethren and his mission, this leads Da Mao to declare that he hasn't betrayed the werewolf council because there was no demon lord.
  • The Big Guy: He's noticeably larger than most of the other roommates and is quite muscular.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Shown more in season 2. When Nick comes over and tries to convince Da Mao to hand over the "demon lord", he immediately attacks Nick and says not to hurt Neil. He even ends up fighting with the werewolf council in order to protect Neil.
  • Born Unlucky: Da Mao is plagued with bad luck. When a lot of situations don't go his way or for whoever is around him this is usually the reason why.
  • Chick Magnet: He's easily one of the most popular men with the opposite sex, but the attention he attracts is a crowd made predominantly of middle aged and old ladies.
  • Cosmic Play Thing: Not counting him being Born Unlucky, the universe seems to enjoy treating him as the Butt-Monkey. The donghua showing him preparing to fully transform under a full moon, only for the clouds to continuously move back and forth, blocking him from seeing the moon and him to scream in frustration.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He had a plan A-L prepared when he went to China. Too bad for his horrible luck that they all ended up being useless.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He easily beats up the Hell rabbit and snake Neil brought over when it took Neil a lot longer to wrangle the two.
  • Cute Little Fang: He has a fang sticking out from his bottom lip most of the time.
  • Cuteness Proximity: He invokes this when he turns into a full wolf, which passerby's mistake as a really big dog. He doesn't seem to mind it though as it leads to people petting and feeding him.
  • Fish out of Water: He gets a bit of a culture shock when he comes to China and has to learn Chinese from the local dogs.
  • Fur Against Fang: The donghua incarnation doesn't seem to be fond of Ira, especially during their first meeting. They get along much better in the webcomic.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: He's the middle child of eight, with three older brothers and four younger sisters and brothers.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: While Vlad is by and large the biggest and beefiest of the recurring male cast, he's actually smaller than all of his older brothers both in height and in muscle.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Because his name is too long everyone just refers to him as "Da Mao" (long hair).
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: If he doesn't get to clearly see a full moon (real or an image of it), he only looks like a wolf-man. If he does see a full moon he turns into a full wolf.
  • Shapeshifting Excludes Clothing: Played with. If he shape-shifts from wolf back to human, he'll still have his underwear on, but not whatever he was wearing earlier. Most of the time he prefers to strip down to his underwear so he doesn't ruin his clothes.
  • Shipper on Deck: While not to the extent that Ira is, he doesn't seem to mind Neil pursuing Lily. He tries to encourage him to send her a text to ask her on a date and even drove him to the restaurant for the two to meet up (although due to his bad luck they hit a lot of detours).
  • Shirtless Scene: He's a sight for sore eyes and he's usually shown without a shirt on, especially when he shifts.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: He can talk to and communicate with other dogs, as they were the ones who taught him Chinese.

Other Residents

     Luis Bite 
An American zombie who dreams of being a Hollywood actor.
  • Adapted Out: Likely due to Chinese censorship, he does not appear in the donghua.
  • Eagleland: Type 3. While he's portrayed as somewhat ignorant and commercialized (his insistence on starring in blockbuster films, his lack of knowledge of American folklore/monsters manifesting in listing American movie and comic franchises), he's a good man like the rest of the cast and is very friendly.
  • Look Both Ways: He apparently died getting hit by a vehicle. He doesn't really hold it against the driver, since Luis cites him (and Leonardo DiCaprio) as his major inspirations.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Zombies are pretty much normal people save the whole "undead" thing. The only thing they have to worry about is skin decay, and they're capable of eating regular food instead of just brains. Luis still eats plenty of brain though.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: As most people in 1031 choose a stereotypical food from their home country, Luis of course chooses the hamburger.
  • Typecasting: He finds himself falling into the role of an undead extra when he wishes to be a lead or an action hero. To his credit, he did at least play a prominent role in a movie—as the real star's Companion Cube of a disembodied arm.

     Abu 
One of Ira's roomates who doesn't speak much but can be seen reading in most of his scenes.
  • Beautiful All Along: Underneath his bandages, Abu is apparently well preserved. He's revealed to have very pretty human features when his usual bandages fall off of him in Strip 176.
  • Bookworm: He's usually seen reading in a corner of the apartment.
  • Chick Magnet: As Luis later learns, Abu is mighty popular with girls for a mummy.
  • Hidden Depths: He has some skills in playing the guitar and singing.
  • Minor Major Character: He's presented in the first episode as one of Neil's new roommates, but rarely gets more screen-time compared to the others. The donghua lampshades this by pointing him out in episode 9, "Abu with only 1% of existence".
  • Mummy: This is what he is. His job is even playing prop at a museum.
  • The Nameless: He isn't given a name when Neil first arrives and Ira doesn't tell him. He's then named in episode 9.
  • The Unintelligible: In the comic, he's decently talkative and has no problems speaking with his fellow roommates. The catch is that he's muffled due to being under wraps, so his speech bubbles (which primarily consist of "woo") always come with a translation. Due to being Demoted to Extra in the donghua, this changes to...
    • The Quiet One: His animated counterpart rarely speaks and in most scenes he's just quietly reading. When he does hum a bit in episode 9, everyone doesn't realize it's him and scream that their apartment must be haunted.
  • Rich Idiot With No Day Job: He's loaded in reality, but he manages to hold down a job as a museum mummy purely out of interest. The rest of the time he bumbles around town.

    Fu 
An ill-tempered raven Abu reanimated as a mummy and keeps as a pet.
  • Parrot Pet Position: Lao Fu often sits on Abu like this, though really Fu goes wherever he wants.
  • Uncatty Resemblance: The placement of his wraps do make him look a lot like Abu, but that's about all he has that resembles the guy.

Neighbors

     Momo 
A Japanese cat demon who lives nearby.
  • Adapted Out: She's not shown in the donghua, likely due to her habit of drinking and wearing short clothing.
  • The Alcoholic: After introducing herself to Neil once she sobers up, she offers him a welcoming bottle of sake... but then refuses to give it over and decides to chug the whole thing herself.
  • Cat Girl: While she is this, the Youkai she's based off is likely a Nekomata, due to the forked tail.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She stumbles onto Neil drunk as a cat and transforms back to her human form when she gets annoyed. She is either showing up drunk or is getting drunk.
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: Momo has a habit of turning up after a hangover with no idea what happened the previous night. Sometimes it gets to the point where she's a danger to everybody in the room.

     Lily Angel 
Lynn's younger sister who Neil soon develops a huge crush on.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: When she meets the others for the first time, they're immediately smitten by her personality and gladly go along with whatever she wants.
  • The Ace: She excels in anything she does, and she was considered the best student at her school.
  • Action Girl: Season 2 of the donghua shows her wielding a sword when all of the other monster divisions come to take away Nini.
  • Big Brother Worship: Contrast to Neil's relationship to his own big brother, Lily absolutely adores her gege and can't bear to be without him. She moved to his current address precisely because she wanted to be near him.
  • Family Theme Naming: She and Lynn both have names that the sound "Li".
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to her brother Lynn's responsible.
  • Genki Girl: She's excited to meet her brother's roommates and genuinely compliments them. She also has a lot of energy in general which contrasts greatly to her brother's calculated and calm demeanor.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in low-braided pigtails behind her head.
  • Hates Being Alone: Her first introduction shows her writing a letter to Lynn telling him she was feeling lonely in Heaven and how it didn't feel like home. She then comes to the conclusion that home is wherever he is and barges in on his apartment.
  • Holy Halo: As an angel she has one, but hasn't used it in the way Lynn does.
  • Lonely at the Top: She excels in all of her schoolwork and seems to be the perfect image of an angelic being. But when she writes to her brother that she feels lonely in Heaven as it doesn't feel like home, she also tells Neil she was also lonely at school because there wasn't anyone there who understood her.
  • Oblivious to Love: She doesn't seem to realize that Neil has gained a crush on her and continues to treat him as a close friend.
  • Perpetual Smiler: She rarely drops her smile.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Where Lynn is quiet and stoic, Lily seems outgoing and upbeat.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Since Momo is Adapted Out in the donghua, Lily is the only girl living with the others in 1031.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She has a lot of Lynn's features.
  • Toothy Issue: She has buck teeth, which also emphasize her innocence and childishnes.
  • Winged Humanoid: Given she's an angel, she has a pair of these.

A Bodhisattva that also serves as the apartment complex's owner. He helped Lynn get accustomed to China.

Others

     Nick Bowman 
Neil's older half-brother, and self proclaimed top salesman of Hell.
  • Advertised Extra: Averted as far as the webtoon goes, as he's a consistently recurring character. for the donghua, however, he was shown in some advertisements for the first season, but his presence story-wise was nonexistent until the last episode. He finally made his debut in the first episode of Season 2.
  • Big Brother Bully: While he does love Neil in his own way, he likes to pick on him a lot, which put a rift between them. For example, when Neil was bullied in PE, Nick took the opportunity to come with him just to get in some licks. Nick sees nothing wrong with this treatment and often wonders why they don't hang out more. Played with later on; he mainly acts this way because he feels it's his way of helping Neil get stronger since the boy was often bullied when they were younger, and Nick's worried his little brother won't be able to control the Demon King.
  • Break Them by Talking: He really breaks into Ira when the other inadvertently summons him by pointing out how he's living off of his parents' money, has never worked a day in his life and calls himself a popular streamer despite having below ten thousand followers.
  • Dark Is Evil: He has a darker color palette compared to his brother, and he's usually up to no good.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He can be seen in some scenes of the donghua opening, but has yet to make an official appearance. He finally appears in the first episode of season 2.
  • Half-Sibling Angst: In the donghua with demon lord Neil trapping Nick in his greatest negative emotion: feeling that Neil is part of the reason his father left. After his mother remarried and had Neil, people made fun of Nick for being fatherless and he felt that Neil took the powers of the demon king that should have went to him. This is quickly subverted when Nick fights back against these thoughts because he genuinely loves Neil and was always focused on being a good brother, which led to him to put Neil through Training from Hell as they grew up so that he might be able to fight back against bullies.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: He bullied and antagonized Neil throughout their childhood, but in episode twenty four, we learn that was only because he knew that Neil was so much of a Nice Guy that he wouldn't fight back against school bullies, so he always tried to give him Training from Hell to toughen him up. He's actually deeply cared about Neil all this time, doing kind things while Neil wasn't there to see, like beating people up who talked badly about him and calling their mom to check on him.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Besides looks, one of the major things Nick's picked up from James is his inability to commit to a romantic relationship. He dips at the first sign his partner wants to consider a next step.
  • Not What It Looks Like: After awakening the Demon Lord, he calmly tells Nick off after disarming him and then sets up the situation to look like Nick was strangling Neil which leads to Lynn calling the police.
  • Really Gets Around: By his own admission, he's had over 60 partners over the course of his life. Man, woman, or in between, he's wooed them all.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Yet another thing he flips from his brother. His more red/black color scheme appropriately fits his trickier, bullying nature.
  • Shapeshifting: Nick is incredibly skilled at shapeshifting, and is one of a handful of demons to do so (it's an elective in Hell). He can even Gender Bend himself, much to Lynn's surprise.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Where Neil was the agreeable and naive little brother, Nick is manipulative, mean, and much more selfish. He also has the opposite color palette to his brother.
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: Nick actually lives in a hotel somewhere in Beijing. He just ends up a drop-in to 1031 that comes around so often you forget that fact.
  • Tough Love: Along with being the older brother who seems to enjoy bullying Neil, he does this because he fears Neil is too weak and wants to make him stronger so he can control the demon king sleeping inside of him.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He doesn't get to see James that often, but when he does he tries everything in his power to earn approval from the man.

    Valentine and Cupid 
The saint in the flesh, having come to live a peaceful life on Earth with Cupid as his son. He vacations in Beijing after becoming obsessed with Chinese dramas.
  • Love Freak: Valentine's more Cupid-like than the real saint ever was. A lot of time is spent on him trying to get people together and having Cupid use his arrows on anyone they feel looks like a good couple.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When Cupid malfunctions, his eyes turn a deep red and he starts throwing arrows indiscriminately. He also loses control of his heat vision (which he has, for some reason).
  • Shipper on Deck: Given their whole thing is based on love and romance, they are this for many characters and couples who they personally root for.
  • Yaoi Fanboy: While he loves couples of all stripes, in two particular instances Valentine tries to speed up what he thinks is the love story between two male characters, and tries to get Ira and Vlad to fall in love with each other.
    James Houdt 
Nick's biological father, and a free spirited policeman in Hell.
  • Batter Up!: In a seeming lack of more conventional police weapons, James carries a bat with him.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Take Nick, but make him older and give him scruff, and that's James in a nutshell.
    Crystal 
    Evan Angel 
One of Lily's old university friends, and an angel like her. He occasionally visits her from Heaven.
  • Straight Gay: At the end of his initial visit, he's revealed to have a thing for Neil, giving him his phone number.
    Wenwen Hao 
A Chinese mosquito monster girl who makes friends with Ira.
  • Punny Name: Her given name is a pun on the Chinese word for mosquito, wen.
