Played by: Choobs
- Body Motifs: She smiles a lot, but only if she's trying to reassure someone.
- Informed Ability: Her hypnotic powers. It's no longer informed because she hypnotized a man just by giving him a handshake.
- Meaningful Name: The Julia set is a fractal, while Romanesco is a broccoli-family vegetable with buds in a fractal pattern. Another fractal? The Mandelbrot set.
- Secret Identity: Masquerade. And then that turns out to have been a Red Herring on Choobs' part to discredit the possibility that Julia might have a second Secret Identity: Mandelbrot.
- There Are No Therapists: Averted. She's a therapist that specializes in paranormal cases because a lot of this stuff happens.
Antonio Sharpe/The Butterfly
Played by: Elliot
- Confess to a Lesser Crime: While in custody, he "admits" to Commissioner Williams that he had contracted the Butterfly to steal some unspecified articles for a "respected client". This lie seems to be an effort to get away with nothing but a charge of conspiracy to theft, though it doesn't go over well with Williams.
- Costume Copycat: Flo and Hugh's comments in Entertain the Masses reveal that there are a lot of teenagers in half butterfly masks pretending to be the Butterfly in order to look edgy and impressive. This saturation of the Butterfly image is exactly what in turn allows Antonio himself to wear the mask into an art museum without getting kicked out at best or arrested at worst.
- Enfant Terrible: Hard to imagine he wasn't one of these, considering he began his career in burglary at around thirteen.
- Framing the Guilty Party: In Obscured Truth, where the Butterfly is framed for the murder of policeman Larry Odio, and Antonio is held on suspicion of assisting in the murder. He's innocent of that, but guilty of plenty else.
- Shrouded in Myth: To such a degree that when Flo and Hugh actually see the real Butterfly, they immediately dismiss him as a fake, having apparently built an exaggerated mental image of him which he fails to meet.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Illiana seems to fulfill the role of the nicer, less cynical friend in this case.
Played by: Elliot
- Cowboy: Marshall embodies Western tropes in the same way that Renard embodies antique detective fiction tropes.
- Funetik Aksent: A nonspecific Southern U.S. dialect.
Played by: Elliot
- Mirror Match: Variation. During Reemergence, he squares off against Yoshimitsu. Both characters have the power to create any weapon they want (Yoshimitsu through his summon monster, Felix through his ring).
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Drops f-bombs into every sentence.
- Stalker Withouta Crush: Samm's line after Mandelbrot is unmasked as Julia seems to imply that Felix has been monitoring the latter for some time.
- The Stoner: Doesn't necessarily show the mannerisms, but is seen smoking marijuana in every appearance so far.
Played by: Lady V
- Animals Hate Him: Specifically, dogs. Or they fear him. There are some hints as to why.He knew that the dog didn't like him. Canines always had one of two reactions: they either cowered at his feet or tried to challenge him. Never any grey area.
- French Jerk: Well, French Brusque And Not Particularly Friendly Guy, at least.
- Howl of Sorrow: His reaction to Flidais' death.
- The Nose Knows: He's got an advanced sense of smell and habitually sniffs at the air, which Kendil mistakes as a leftover habit from a possible drug addiction.
Played by: Merc
- Generic Ethnic Crime Gang: It's hinted that her "family" (literal or figurative) is engaged in some morally grey business. This trope's the best guess until we get more details.
- I Work Alone: Traditionally, prior to joining up with the other operatives in Quenching the Ucalegon. It makes sense given her power.
Narcissa Iago Zaghetti
Played by: Lee
- Depending on the Writer: The entire point of her creation is that she's open to being written by any author, with the attendant variations in her characterization, although Lee is the only one to do so thus far.
- A God Am I: Firmly believes herself to be a demigod.
Kalim & Nugget
Played by: Kuroboom
- Our Demons Are Different: Also our imps."I myself am a Demon, though not in the traditional Biblical sense where I want to lead you to darkness and eat your soul or whatever."
- Poisoned Weapons: Razors lined with synthetic basilisk venom.
- Really 700 Years Old: Nugget is the cat equivalent: Kalim pegs his age as around fifty Earth years, which is more than three times a cat's average life expectancy and a solid twelve years older than the longest-living real-world cat on record. Granted, Nugget is no more a normal cat than most characters who are Really 700 Years Old are normal humans.
- Treasure Hunter: Though Kalim isn't that invested in treasure himself and really just seeks it out to appease Nugget.
- Violent Glaswegian: More on the menacing side than the angry side.
Played by: Prime
- Our Vampires Are Different: Ryuu says he isn't technically a vampire because he doesn't make a habit of going after humans.
- Shrinking Violet: At his best. Aya certainly brings this out in him. Then he started losing the appeal by mouthing off toward Blaise.
Field Agent Alexander Price
Played by: Choobs
- Arbitrarily Large Bank Account: Price often comments on how expensive something is right before saving the receipt so he can expense it to Saeptum later.
- Noodle Incident: He was almost killed by a vase once.
- Psychic Static: Price's preferred way of blocking telepaths is to think about how ugly they look.
- Who You Gonna Call?: The Saeptum Foundation investigates paranormal occurrences and helps with capture/containment of dangerous artifacts.
Rhometer & Higgledy-Piggledy
Played by: Pohatu
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: Happens twice in short succession in Mirror of Urakuni:With one hand obscured behind a ridiculously overlong sleeve, he tipped his hat back. For a moment, his left pupil seemed to focus only on the bubble, instead of spiralling in and out from a central point to his widest ring of vision. ... Then he poked it. The bubble, I mean.Then he slammed the pencil straight down through the katana onto the point where it was stabbed through the carpet. ... Or actually I guess he would have if the katana had kept occupying space in its previously established way but it didn't, really.
- Limited Wardrobe: Rho definitely fits this trope, wearing the exact same patched zoot suit in every RP.
- Nice Hat: A fedora full of bullet holes. Sweet.
- Puppy Love: Rhometer/Vieve is a favorite ship, though nothing in the text yet indicates that they're more than friends. Both being cheerful, innocent spirits with shadow-based powers who take the form of human children despite being Really 700 Years Old, they're basically meant to be.
- "Shaggy Frog" Story: Rhometer loves these!"The barterer said 'We don't serve seeking summers here' and the hooded man said 'I can't hear you' and the mirror said 'He says we don't serve abduckled children here' and the abducklinged children child said 'Help help, I'm being abduct-taped.'"
- Time-Travel Tense Trouble: Although it doesn't seem to bother Rhometer that much."It's gonna be have will was been awesome"
