Team Constantine

     John Constantine 

     Chas Chandler 

Francis "Chas" Chandler

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chas_chandler_tv_promo_photo_nbc.jpg

Species: Human (Enhanced via magic)

Affiliations: The Newcastle Crew, Team Constantine

Played by: Charles Halford

Appearances: Constantine

John's driver and oldest friend. The oldest probably because he's unable to die - John says he has certain "survival skills", whatever that means.


  • Adaptational Badass: Chas has an active role in Constantine's good deeds and is fairly competent at helping out even besides his immortality. In the source material, he is more often then not simply roped into the insane things that go on around Constantine, often only to the extent of being press-ganged into being John's driver, and is ill-equipped to handle the supernatural. His wife Rene also gets an upgrade, going from extremely abrasive, controlling and rarely sympathetic to being generally unsupportive but understandably so, considering how things look from her perspective.
  • Adaptational Nationality: British in the comics, American here.
  • Alliterative Name: Always addressed as Chas Chandler.
  • The Big Guy: With some traces of The Lancer. Chas tends to do the legwork that doesn't require John's expertise and knowledge of spells.
  • Celebrity Paradox: The Law & Order franchise was acknowledged to exist in the Arrowverse. His actor played a Small Role, Big Impact antagonist on Law & Order: SVU.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: He can regenerate from any wound (that we've seen), so he tends to get a lot of wounds that would be mortal for anyone else.
  • A Million Is a Statistic: Averted. Has actually made the effort to learn the names and lives of the 47 people who died in the accident that caused his immortality, seeing them as people to respect rather than his reserves. He even keeps their pictures in an album.
  • Out of Continues: How his immortality works.
  • Knife Nut: He's often wielding a large knife.
  • Never My Fault: In a moment of anger in "Quid Pro Quo" he blames John for the strained relationship of his marriage, even though Chas could've left John's adventures anytime he wanted.
  • Number Two: Probably because any other candidate for that position is long-dead.
  • Papa Wolf: Loves his little daughter, Geraldine, very much. On the rare occasion Chas loses his cool, he is most furious when she is threatened. Sadly, battling the legions of Hell with Constantine doesn't leave him much time to spend with her.
  • Required Secondary Powers: His Healing Factor seems to be a result of this, considering there's no other rational reason that having Resurrective Immortality would also allow him to heal rapidly from non-fatal wounds.
  • Resurrective Immortality: He survives being impaled with a live electric wire in the pilot, and when Liv asks How Is That Even Possible?, John just chalks it up to his "survival skills" and doesn't bother to explain any further. It is referenced again in "Danse Vaudou," where he is stabbed to death by a ghost, but after a few minutes, his wounds rapidly heal and he wakes up, not so much as dazed by the ordeal. It is later revealed that John once drunkenly cast a spell on Chas that was supposed to be a legend, so when he was in an accident he absorbed the souls of 47 people and for every time he dies he loses one of them. Once he runs out, he dies for good.
  • The Stoic: The only time he visibly expresses emotions about anything is when he's physically injured. Or when Pazuzu mocked him about losing his father and daughter.
  • The Quiet One: Not very chatty, he seems to prefer to let John do the talking.
  • Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm.
  • Undying Loyalty: He sticks by John through thick and thin, even after the Newcastle incident. This is in direct contrast to all of other John's friends who more or less disowned him after it.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Like Zed, Chas's absence is also yet to be acknowledged in Legends of Tomorrow.; so if he's still around or finally ran out of extra souls is a mystery.

     Zed Martin 

Mary "Zed" Martin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zed_martin_tv_promo_photo_nbc.jpg

Species: Enhanced human

Played by: Angélica Celaya

Appearances: Constantine

A psychic and a recent addition to John's team of monster slayers. Zed has been traveling the country, drifting from place to place and struggling to understand her newfound psychic powers.


  • Action Survivor: Can handle herself, especially when the people who work for her father come to kidnap her, but not overtly known for her brawn.
  • Ambiguously Evil: In her introductory episode, Constantine muses (in his closing monologue) what her real motives are, and the show has yet to clarify them.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In episode 103. She beats up a homeless man who was about to stab a prone Constantine.
  • The Empath: Zed can pick up visions and strong emotions via contact with other substances and people.
  • The Heart: She has a kinder approach to most situations than Constantine.
  • Messianic Archetype: For the Resurrection Crusade, the cult led by her father.
  • Psychic Powers: She has premonitions, for a start. Constantine comments that's only the tip of her psychic iceberg. These premonitions frequently manifest through her paintings and drawings.
  • Race Lift: An English white woman in the comics, Zed here is played by Mexican actress Angelica Celaya.
  • Spicy Latina: Occasionally she can be hot headed and belligerent, though in all fairness John is often the cause of this attitude.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Averted. As Liv's replacement, Zed couldn't be any more different; whereas Liv was cautious and often took the passive role in the dynamic between her and John, Zed isn't all that fazed with the world of magic and definitely doesn't take any of John's crap.
  • The Runaway: Ran away from home when she was a teenager, and judging from the fact she says she was locked away in a room and abused, it's not hard to see why.
  • Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm.
  • The Watson: She often is the victim of John's exposition about the supernatural.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Legends of Tomorrow picks up many of the loose story threads that were left dangling following Constantine's cancellation, yet Zed is nowhere to be seen or even acknowledged.

The Newcastle Crew

     In General 
"Back then, we all thought John was the duck's nuts. I mean some of the crew were interested in the occult, but most of us just wanted to be around him. So when he started talking about this trip to Newcastle, we all jumped at the chance. Road trip, some black magic with the John Constantine. Who could say no? But then there was this girl. She was a daughter of one of John's friends. She was possessed. Nobody knew what to do, how to save her."
Gary Lester

A group of sorcerers and demon hunters who followed John Constantine, until a routine exorcism went horribly wrong and they all went their separate ways.


  • Breaking the Fellowship: After Astra was damned to Hell, they disbanded. Some trying to atone others trying to runaway from their guilt — the one thing they have in common is with the exception of Chas (and Gary) none of them ever want to see Constantine again.
  • It's All My Fault: Zigg-zagged. They all rightfully blame Constantine for what happened to Astra, but on a subconscious level they also blame themselves as well.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With the exception of Chas (and Gary), all them disowned Constantine after what happened to Astra.

    Ritchie Simpson 

Ritchie Simpson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/constantine_ritchie_simpson.jpg

Species: Empowered human

Affiliations: The Newcastle Crew

Played by: Jeremy Davies

Appearances: Constantine

Ritchie Simpson is a professor of metaphysics at a local Atlanta university and a former acquaintance of Constantine in Newcastle.


  • The Atoner: Averted. Unlike everyone else at Newcastle, Ritchie's life is largely spent running away from the problems of his past and attempting to forget everything that happened. It's ironic he's trying to do this since he's living in the same city as Constantine.
  • Apathetic Teacher: Downplayed. Ritchie spends his classes barely interacting with his students and playing recordings of past lectures instead of actually teaching them, but he has protégées like Adam and he’s nice to them outside of his lectures. He seems to be growing out of this after three students under his protection are murdered after being trapped in another dimension controlled by a twisted serial killer, and he decides to take the classes again.]
  • Celebrity Paradox:
  • Cowardly Lion: He dreads Constantine’s very presence, afraid of being caught up again in the constantly deadly world of magic that follows in his wake. He however is willing to travel into a dimension controlled by the sadistic serial killer Jacob Shaw to save a student in his class.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Constantine back in the day before Newcastle. Constantine considered Ritchie his true partner in crime because he was the only one that didn’t worship Constantine like a god.
  • Hollywood Hacking: He shuts down Atlanta's power grid to weaken Furcifer.
  • I Choose to Stay: Subverted. When he learns how to control the dimension Jacob Shaw created, he strongly considers leaving the material world behind, believing that he could be happy and become like a god there. Then Constantine talks him out of it, turning this into an Anti-Escapism Aesop.
  • Identical Stranger: He resembles John Deegan, the main villain of Elseworlds.
  • Nice Guy: He’s considerate with everyone he meets (Constantine, notwithstanding), including Liv and the students at his university.
  • Properly Paranoid: He freaks out when he sees Constantine enter his office, and he's right to seeing as a trail of death and destruction is virtually a guarantee when you hang around with someone like John Constantine.
  • Reality Warper: Learns how to control the imagined dimension created by Jacob Shaw, becoming near-omnipotent. He entertains the thought of staying there but Constantine convinces that this was another way of just running away from his past.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: A professor of metaphysics and computer hacker with a strong Southern drawl.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: As a friend of Constantine, it’s obvious that he would inevitably become a Deadpan Snarker. Like Anne-Marie Flynn he’s one of the few that can keep up with John in a verbal spat.
  • Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm.

    Gary Lester 

Gary "Gaz" Lester

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jonjo_oneil_matt_ryan_nbc_6.jpg

Species: Empowered human

Affiliations: The Newcastle Crew

Played by: Jonjo O'Neill

Appearances: Constantine

A struggling heroin addict and an old friend of John from his Newcastle days.


  • Adaptational Heroism: Gary Lester is made more sympathetic than his comic counterpart, who was much more concerned with getting high than helping John stop Mnemoth, and less accepting of having Mnemoth bound inside of him.
  • The Atoner: Like most of the Newcastle crew, his work in the present day is an attempt to make up for what happened to Astra.
  • Addled Addict: Mostly party drugs back before Newcastle but graduated to full blown heroin junkie.
  • The Chew Toy: The universe seems to absolutely despise Gary Lester. First, he's left psychologically scarred by the events of Newcastle. Then, he traps a hunger demon in a bottle but lets it get loose. He gets caught in a zero gravity trap, gets beaten up by thugs, and the list goes on and on. This of course, leads to its logical conclusion of death by hunger demon.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Eaten alive by a hunger demon from the inside out, all while strapped to a bed and screaming in agony.
  • Dead Person Conversation: He briefly appeared by possessing a corpse to tell John he has a bounty on his head.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Gave his life to be Mnemoth's final host by taking in the demon and letting it consume him (and in the process have it unwittingly destroy itself).
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: It's clear he idolizes John Constantine and wants to be a powerful sorcerer like him. His attempt to help the guy who was Mnemoth's prison was his way of doing what John would do.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Tried to trap the demon Mnemoth when it was already permanently trapped in a human host that was already dying and taking the demon with it. Gary inadvertently let the demon loose on the world and caused numerous deaths in the process.
  • Present Absence: Invoked, when his reflection shows up in one of the Mill House’s mirrors after his death in “A Whole World Out There”. John decides to toast to his memory.
  • Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Though he has good intentions, a majority of Gary's actions have led to things becoming much worse. His plan to help the poor soul that was possessed by Mnemoth? Led to it possessing and killing more people. Get high while holding a seance and run away when it goes wrong? A girl dies, is damned to Hell and all his friends are left psychologically broken for years to come.

    Anne-Marie Flynn 

Sister Anne-Marie Flynn

Species: Empowered human

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mv5bntg3otu5nji2of5bml5banbnxkftztgwmdi2mjcwnde_v1.jpg

Affiliations: The Newcastle Crew

Played by: Claire van der Boom

Appearances: Constantine

A nun at a Mexican convent, Anne-Marie was one of John’s old friends from his Newcastle days. She also happened to be one of the members of the séance that damned Astra Logue to Hell, for which was the catalyst that led her to join the nunnery to repent for her sins.


  • Adaptational Attractiveness: The Anne-Marie in the comics is rather old, wrinkly and frumpy. None of those adjectives would (or should) be used to describe Claire van der Boom.
  • Age Lift: As noted above, she's younger than her comics counterpart.
  • Anti-Hero: Incredibly cynical and stand-offish for a nun, and also willing to sacrifice Constantine to an ancient demon in order to save an innocent child’s life.
  • The Atoner: Like any member of the Newcastle crew, she’s spending her life trying to make up for the death/damnation of Astra.
  • The Cynic: Being a friend of Constantine seems to do this to you.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Again, being Constantine’s friend is inevitably bound to make you as sarcastic as him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Seriously, what is it about Constantine that causes him to produce these types of people? Anne-Marie is definitely not the nicest person (though of course, you don't deal with someone like Constantine with nice words) but she values people's lives and is willing to do anything to protect the people under her care.
  • My Greatest Failure: For her, it's the fact she was one of the people who taught John magic in the first place. In fact she introduced him to it, which is why she hates him so much.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Along with her Naughty Nun status, she performed a spell to distract a few prison guards by summoning a naked apparition of herself.
  • Nun Too Holy: She’s not rebellious or anything, only naughty in the sense of her association to Constantine, Former Teen Rebel status and cynical outlook on the world.
  • Tsundere: Her tsun-tsun side is usually reserved for Constantine, but around others like Chas or the women who come to give birth at the convent she’s sweet and understanding.

    Natalie 

Natalie

Species: Human (Spirit)

Played by: Alice Hunter

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

John's childhood friend and Astra's mother, her ghost haunts the home they used to play in after her death in said home.


  • Amicable Exes: Downplayed. She and John are fairly friendly toward each other despite the fact he sent her daughter to Hell, although she's still a vengeful spirit in practice.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Implied with John as they grew up together, until he chose magic over her and she went to New York.
  • Driven to Suicide: Astra's damnation made her so despondent that she killed herself.
  • Necromantic: Her husband tried to convince John to bring her back to life.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Technically for a brief time, until she committed suicide.
  • Posthumous Character: She died not long after Astra was sent to Hell.
  • Remember the New Guy?: No mention of her was made until half a decade after the Newcastle tragedy despite being one of John's closest friends. Given how he even attempted necromancy to bring her to life, he's likely ashamed to talk of it.
  • Unfinished Business: She comes back due to having information on how to deal with the Encores.

Human Sorcerers

     Papa Midnite 

Papa Midnite

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/constantine_michael_james_shaw_6.jpg

Species: Human (Empowered via magic)

Played by: Michael James Shaw

Appearances: Constantine

Voodoo king and John's nemesis, Papa Midnite is a supernatural crime lord working with soul brokers for some unknown reason.


  • Adaptational Heroism: It's easy to imagine the comic version of Papa Midnite working to fix things when his magic goes off the rails and brings the dead back as ghosts who cause havoc for practical reasons. When this actually happens in the show, however, he seems to have at least some genuine concern for the people who are caught in the middle. Further, in "Waiting for the Man," while he uses his dead sister for information, he also seems to be actively trying to bring her back. In the comics, he not only would never willingly give up her use as a tool, she has to team up with Constantine to escape him.
  • Anti-Villain: From what we've seen so far, there are layers to his character. He uses his powers for profit, but genuinely believes he is helping people in the process. The moment he is shown that his actions have had negative repercussions, he joins forces with Constantine and more or less fully co-operates to solve the issue. For the most part, his antagonistic attitude has been exclusively towards Constantine, but it's heavily implied there has been a grudge between them for quite some time.
  • Big Bad: Word of God said that he would be the main villain of the series. He really was not, he as best John's most recurring nemesis. Then again the series ''was'' cancelled prematurely so...
  • Affably Evil/Faux Affably Evil: Straddles the line between the two, especially around Constantine.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He gets advice from the other side through the skull of his dead sister.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Midnite dabbles in Black Magic for profit, but holds bringing back the dead as a crime against nature.
  • Evil Counterpart: He's very similar to Constantine himself. However, while Constantine primarily uses magic himself and does his own dirty work through enchantments and trinkets, Midnite uses henchmen and tends more toward using enchanted weapons, such as the Ace of Winchesters.
  • Hollywood Voodoo: Complete with a Voodoo Doll of John.
  • Master of One Magic: He is fully committed to Voodoo and thinks of John as a magical "parasite" for taking bits and pieces of magic from different traditions rather than fully committing to a single one.
  • Necromancer: Can raise Voodoo Zombies through a ritual with the Loa.
  • Nothing Personal: Says this to Constantine while using a Voodoo Zombie to kill him to collect the bounty so he can free his sister's soul.
  • Pet the Dog: He seems genuinely support John's crusade against the Rising Darkness once they succeed in putting the dead back where they belong.
  • Synchronization: He felt what his Voodoo Zombie did.
  • Smug Super: More so than Constantine. Papa really looks down on Constantine's dabbling in multiple traditions and considers those like himself, who fully commit to one tradition to be better magic-users. He really likes rubbing it in Constantine's face that he is capable of magic Constantine is not.
  • Wild Card: He more or less does what suits him. In one episode he's shooting John, in the other they're teaming up.
  • Witch Doctor: Gives off vibes of this, using a lot more medical practices (for evil) alongside his magic.
  • Worthy Opponent: While he and Constantine genuinely dislike each other. There are signs that they also respect each others abilities.

     Felix Faust 

Felix Faust

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/constantine_felix_faust_440x250.jpg

Species: Human (Empowered via magic)

Played by: Mark Margolis

Appearances: Constantine

An old wizard and contemporary of Constantine (if you could call him that) who was once a second rate sorcerer but now capable of powerful dark magic, including the ability to steal peoples’ souls and put them into terminal comas.


  • Alliterative Name: Felix Faust.
  • Celebrity Paradox: Breaking Bad was mentioned in The Flash (2014). His actor plays a prominent antagonist there.
  • Composite Character: His episode is largely adapted from the comic series All His Engines, which didn't include Faust at all. Faust's role in the show replaces that of the demon Beroul.
  • Deal with the Devil: Typical of Faust, he tends to make deals that screw people over one way or another.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Of the classic robe-wearing, ominous chanting Saruman-style wizard. Felix bases his lair out of a warehouse in Brooklyn, complete with cauldrons, candles and shelves full of potions.
  • Evil Old Folks: This dude looks like he should be in a coffin, but he’s still hanging around causing mischief and malevolent mayhem.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: John and Chas knew him as a second string wizard who frequently lost at poker games; fast forward to the present day, he’s responsible for stealing hundreds of peoples’ souls (including Chas’ daughter) and putting them into a coma that eventually will kill them.
  • In Name Only: Very different from the comic Felix Faust.
  • Meaningful Name: A guy called Faust makes a Deal with the Devil. Shocker.
  • The Resenter: One of his outburst reveals that he deeply resents that fact that Constantine is so naturally good at magic, while people like Faust work their asses off and can’t even get close.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The rising darkness has allowed him to do things that he could only had dreamed off in the past.
  • Taking You with Me: He gets killed when Chas entraps him with the sinew of Achilles's heel and Chas blew himself up with a grenade. Because of Chas's Resurrective Immortality, he comes back but Faust doesn't.

Species: Empowered human

Played by: William Mapother

Appearances: Constantine

A psychotic serial killer who used an ancient egyptian ritual to transfer his mind into a Pocket Dimension before his murder process, where he is able to live out his sick fantasies.


     "The Man" 

"The Man"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_man.png

Species: Empowered Human

Played by: J.D. Evermore

Appearances: Constantine

A Satanist redneck, who has a harem of dead little girls who serve as his "brides".


  • Asshole Victim: Given what a despicable human being he was, it's hard to shed a tear for him when John and Jim Corrigan execute him instead of having him face the law.
  • Corrupt Hick: A despicable criminal with a Deep South accent.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The "brides" always only call him "The Man", his real name isn't revealed.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He has a talkative and downright cheerful demeanor. He also killed his first wife because she wasn't the virgin he "deserved", brutally murders a man for nothing more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time and has no qualms about killing children too.
  • Hollywood Satanism: What he practices.
  • Necromancer: His "brides" appear to have been dead for a while and are still under his control.
  • Pedo Hunt: Given that the "brides" act mindlessly devoted to him and are shackled, it's very heavily implied that he molests them.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He killed his three "brides" to raise their obedient spirits and would have done the same to the fourth girl, had John and his crew not saved her.

     Damien Darhk 

     Nora Darhk 

Other Magic Users

     Esrin Fortuna 

Esrin Fortuna

Species: Human (Empowered via magic)

Played by: Gabriella Wright

Appearances: Arrow

An immortal shaman who is a friend of John Constantine and teaches Oliver light magic.


  • All-Powerful Bystander: As Felicity points out, she doesn't like Darhk, but doesn't do anything to stop him, to which she explains immortals like her don't intervene.
    Esrin: It's not the way of things. We immortals tend to stay out of the affairs of men.
  • Ambiguously Human: It's never made clear if she was a human who gained immortality, or if she was never human to begin with and merely has a human appearance.
  • Badass Teacher: She teaches Oliver light-based magic to counteract Darhk's dark-based magic, and of course it goes without saying she's a powerful magic user herself.
  • Canon Foreigner: Was created specifically for Arrow and has no comic counterpart.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She knows dark-based magic, but is aligned with good, or at the very least neutral.
  • Immortality: A true immortal who cannot die.
  • It Amused Me: An immortal shaman who likes playing blackjack because it's a hobby of hers.
  • Lady of Black Magic: An elegant, immortal shaman dressed in a sheer black dress who is very knowledgeable in magic, able to use dark magic was to create waves of dark, ethereal gas that makes the target feel all the darkness in their lives.
  • Noodle Incident: Constantine owed her money at some point.

     Liv Aberdine 

Liv Aberdine

Species: Empowered human

Played by: Lucy Griffiths

Appearances: Constantine

  • Dropped After the Pilot: Was originally supposed to be part of the main cast, but due to poor reception about her character, she was written out of the show and replaced by Zed Martin.
  • Protective Charm: At the end of the pilot, John puts a "cloaking spell" on her before she leaves for California.

  • Back from the Dead: She died of a heart attack when her son was executed for her crimes, before she got resurrected by Astra.
  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: She appears in all of two scenes before the reveal that she is the killer, not her son.
  • Incest Subtext: Her Yandere fixation with her son certainly has some creepy vibes.
  • Invincible Villain: The resurrected Kathy Meyers in 2004 is an unstoppable monster, thanks to her telekinetic powers after being brought back by Astra. The only way she's stopped is when the Legends change history in 1989 so that she never becomes an Encore to begin with.
  • Mind over Matter: Her resurrected form has extremely potent telekinetic abilities.
  • Never My Fault: Kathy blames the kids at Freddy's school for getting her son imprisoned and executed, even though she brought it on herself by snapping and killing seven kids and chose not to speak up for her son when he took the fall.
  • No-Sell: Her resurrected form pretty much ignores everything the Legends throw at her.

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

The elusive serial killer of Whitechapel. He's sent to 1910 England during the time Constantine's old home was a boarding house, among the slew of other Encores tasked with finding the Loom of Fate's final piece.


  • Deadly Doctor: Is either posing as or is a legitimate medical practitioner, judging by the canvas roll up bag of tools he carries with him. This is a nod to the fact that Jack's murders were carried out with what seemed to be medical knowledge.
  • Historical Domain Character: Obviously.
  • Knife Nut: Has a particular affinity for his surgical scalpel, which also doubles as his Hell weapon.
  • Mr. Smith: Books a room under the generic name of Mr. White.

  • Pinball Projectile: How Bonnie goes out. She takes a shot at Constantine but Zari deflects the bullet using the Air Totem, causing the bullet to ricochet and bounce back and kill herself.

Played By: Sean Millington

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

  • Magic Compass: Caesar uses a Hell-enchanted compass to find the Loom piece, which Constantine and Zari take after Caesar is killed by Clyde.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, since Julius Caesar has appeared on the show before. Brutus, being a contemporary of Julius does a double take when he hears his name.

The first magical creature the Legends have to apprehend in Season 4.


  • Black Comedy: It's probably difficult to have a killer unicorn and not get a few dark laughs. Special mention goes to the team's awe at the unicorn being replaced with shock and horror when it gores a hapless victim. A bystander looks at his own unicorn t-shirt with an expression of absolute terror, and it's all played for laughs. It later bites off one of Gary's nipples and it is again played for laughs.

  • Fantastic Drug: The Unicorn's goo works as a hallucinogen, much to everyone's joy at the Woodstock Festival in 1969.

  • Evil Old Folks: Has an appearance of a loving grandmother but is rotten to the core.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: She looks as sweet and wholesome as the name implies. She's actually jaded, nasty, and more than a little sadistic. She's downright gleeful at the idea of feeding the Legends to a murder of hungry crows, and happily anticipates raining fire down on Salem before Prudence rejects her.
  • Fairy Godmother: On the surface appears to be the sweet and kindly version, complete with singing and sparkly magic, but is actually a malevolent parasite that grants its host's wishes in order to feed off their life force.
  • Fairy Devilmother: While she has the guise of a stereotypical Fairy Godmother, she is revealed to have malicious intent.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She plays up her sweet reputation and maternal exterior to get on Prudence's good side, but her manipulative tendencies are well on display and any apparent sweetness hides an incredibly vicious and sadistic personality.
