Character page for the webcomic Ava's Demon. Beware spoilers!
Ordinary mortals who were unlucky enough to be born (or reborn) at the exact moment a powerful alien, somewhere else in the galaxy, died and became a demon. Initially their demons have limited powers and follow them around as spirits, but each host and demon has the potential to make a contract, fusing their souls and becoming very, very powerful. So far we've met four- Ava, Maggie, Gil, and Odin.
- Blessed with Suck: Or Cursed with Awesome: Get incredible Game Breaking powers in exchange for being stuck with an unstable demon in your head. Exactly how difficult this situation is differs depending on the demon-host relationship.
- Bullying a Dragon: All four we've seen are or were victims of this to some degree.
- Ava's is invoked by Wrathia, as her friendless background is directly the result of her interference.
- Maggie's is only hinted at from the way she talks about Gil, it seems the girl doesn't have a good history with people.
- Odin's sisters are a more teasing type, but they also put a tracker on him by sabotaging a ring that's obviously important to him, and he implies he's never given a lot of respect from his family.
- Gil is forgotten by his old friends (who apparently reported his discussions with Nevy to the principal) and then would have been made a janitor instead of a doctor as he'd dreamed and studied for. Kinda lucky he never found out that last fact.
- Color-Coded Characters:
- Ava is Red
- Maggie is Green
- Gil is Blue
- Odin is Purple
- Cursed with Awesome: Or Blessed with Suck: Get incredible Game Breaking powers in exchange for being stuck with an unstable demon in your head. Exactly how difficult this situation is differs depending on the demon-host relationship.
- Deal with the Devil: They can extend their powers through a "pact."
- Demonic Possession: In the literal sense, though Wrathia at least is (or was) capable of playing it fully straight.
- Dysfunction Junction: All the hosts have some unresolved issues that just seem to get worse around each other.
- Ava has a crippling lack of confidence, and due to Wrathia's influence, she has been ostracized her whole life. Basically every single time she's tried to do something to improve her life, it only seems to make things worse. As a result, when she gains power she has no sense of responsibility or self-limitations and goes wild.
- Maggie is incredibly abrasive towards basically everyone except Gil, who she's crushing on. She downplays her own flaws and blows out of proportion those of others. Word of God implies that something terrible happened to her in the past that caused her to be this way, though, and that she should be pitied more than hated.
- Odin has serious self-esteem issues that he keeps hidden under a stoic facade, and it's implied his own family doesn't really care about him. He compensates by smoking and being standoffish towards basically everyone.
- Gil is the most well-adjusted of the four, but he died in a horrifying way when he was four, and has spent all the time since trying to belong in Titan's society, essentially becoming a religious fanatic. Towards Odin and Ava, who he thinks don't belong in Titan's society, he is rather insensitive and condescending.
- Elemental Powers: Though they can't access them until they form a pact, each is associated with an element
- Emotional Powers: According to Word of God.
- Exotic Eye Designs: Each has a glowing geometric shape in their eyes- circles for Ava, triangles for Maggie, squares for Odin, and diamonds for Gil. If the cast page is anything to go by, the remaining three have stars, hearts, and crescent moons.
- Flower Motif: Each of them has been so far associated to a flower in one way or another (except Gil, who is more associated with fishes)
- Ava is connected to poppies, specifically red poppies. In flower language, red poppies are largely associated with death in the west, both in relation to the fact she died in order to make a pact and that she caused the death of many when she took the potion.
- Maggie is associated with blue roses. Blue roses aren't natural, and are obtained through artificial means (they are either dyed blue or bred). While they are sometimes used as symbols of love, they are also symbols of the unattainable. This is specially true since she is implied to use Tul's Blue Roses to force men to fall in love with her, therefore she has an artificial love.
- Odin is related to an in-universe flower Florem Mortem, which he smokes in order be unable to hear Pedri.
- Hijacking Cthulhu: Ava proves this is possible for them- if difficult. Maggie also bullies Tuls, and Odin seems to have a bad relationship with Pedri without being as broken as Ava is.
- Humanoid Abomination: Unintentionally and to varying degrees depending on how fused they are with their demon, but yes. Just, yes.
- MacGuffin Super Person: Unconfirmed, but from Odin's discussion with his sisters it seems he was sent to collect Maggie for whoever's collected him.
- Made of Iron: With pacts they have Nigh-Invulnerability, and even without pacts Odin and Gil survive Ava's attack, and Odin survives his ship crashing with minimal injuries.
- Although in the latter case Gil was protected from debris by Maggie and Odin by Ava, it's noticeable that Convection Schmonvection is 100% averted for everyone but Maggie, Gil, Odin, and Strategos Six (though they're still affected by the heat none of them receive burns in situations where others do.)
- Meaningful Name: Everyone's name is related to their sins and powers. See individual characters for details.
- Mental World: Those that have made a pact have access to one.
- Not-So-Imaginary Friend: According to Word of God, one way to read the comic is by assuming it's actually a Jekyll & Hyde/Enemy Within situation.
- Powers via Possession: As far as we know, only as pactmakers.
- Red Right Hand: Apart from the Treasure Chest Cavity, hosts who have made a pact gain some form of physical marker, such as Ava's face glowing or Maggie's hair turning green.
- Seven Deadly Sins: The demons each correspond to one of the seven deadly sins, and their hosts seems particularly vulnerable to these traits as well.
- Stronger Than They Look: All of them, whether aware of it or not, could use incredibly powerful magic if they make a pact. Really, really powerful magic.
- Symbiotic Possession: Played straight for Maggie and Gil, averted for Odin and Ava.
- Treasure Chest Cavity: Only after forming a pact. It serves as a portal to their Mental World.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: If Ava's any indication, the stronger they become, the more they're influenced by their demons.
Ava hasn't had a very pleasant life considering that she has been possessed by a rather angry demon since birth. Said demon has constantly attempted to either kill, or pressure her into making a "Pact" without any explanation of what it entails. The story begins some time after Ava was separated from her parents and sent to a re-education planet terraformed and run by TITAN Inc.
- Accidental Pervert: Odin swears up and down that Ava is a Covert Pervert. Not helped when she's smelling people, looking up their shirts and her Limbo Lenses can see through their bodies.note
- An Axe to Grind: Pulls out one about half the size of her body out of her chest compartment and seems more than eager to use it.
- And I Must Scream: An interesting variation. Ava's still alive, but the "potion" (curse) she consumes transforms her into...something, which fans theorize is "Wrava." In this state she ignores her conscience, which is not...good, to say the least. When she starts to speak, some of the words have letters in bold, and the words they form starts off with "THIS IS... BAD..." indicating a part of Ava realizes something is going horribly wrong.
- These two pages say it all.
- The Atoner: Considers herself responsible for Maggie's cruelty and as a result refuses to simply leave her to TITAN's followers. She persuades Odin to help her attempt to get Maggie to leave the TITAN base.
- Back from the Dead: Is brought back to life after she finally forms a pact with Wrathia.
- Badass Boast: "I'm Ava. Ava Ire. And I CAN'T die. Got it, pal!?"
- Berserker Tears: When combined with Burning with Anger, they turn into steam.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Ava is usually a meek and kind girl who just got the unfortunate position of being Wrathia's host. But that being said, she can really be quite scary when pushed too far (which becomes worse after taking Wrathia's potion).
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: Almost as big as her eyes.
- Bi the Way: Confirmed by Word of God, though she hasn't had much chance to explore her romantic side — confirmed around p 1918 to have a crush on Maggie. She's also getting some moments with Odin.
- Born Unlucky: Being cursed with a vengeful demon since birth is not very fortuitous.
- Broken Bird: It's safe to say, she's on her way to becoming this.
- Bound and Gagged: Odin's solution for her causing him trouble after trying to knock him out with a wrench.
- Burning with Anger: After the pact, when she gets angry, she Turns Red just like Wrathia, gaining a lava-like appearance and red eyes.
- Came Back Strong: Through the Pact she makes.
- Classical Anti-Hero: Weak-willed. Debilitating anxiety. Needs to take down an interstellar empire.
- Covered with Scars: Word of God is that the scars on her upper arms are from "all from the times Wrathia missed".
- Curse: The potion that Ava drank to change into Wrava is referred to as a liquid curse that would last her a thousand lifetimes.
- Dark Magical Girl: Word of God states Ava's transformation into Wrava was based off magical girls.
- Dark-Skinned Redhead: Is a dirty blonde before the pact. Seems to switch between having red-toned skin and fire orange with yellow patches depending on her mood.
- Deadpan Snarker: Funnily enough she starts showing shades of this after she dies.Ava: Well that SUCKS because I have no desires! Except maybe to get rid of YOU.
Wrathia: A lot of things suck at the moment, so you can spare me your newly discovered snarky attitude.
- Emotional Powers: Ava's demonic side tends to act up when she is feeling angry or flustered.
- Eye Colour Change: Along with skin tones.
- Evil Feels Good: Admits that unleashing her wrath against the Titan followers felt incredible.
- Fangs Are Evil: After drinking the vial.
- Foil: Maggie is hers, right down to their opposite Color-Coded Characters.
- Friendless Background: Wrathia sabotaged all of Ava's friendships and opportunities to make new ones.
- Healing Factor: After her pact with Wrathia, Ava gains this ability.
- Holy Halo: Twice after Wrathia empowers her. Of course, with her new horns, it gives some mixed messages.
- Horned Humanoid: After drinking a potion.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Her desire is to have a new life, without Wrathia messing her up and where people will love her.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: Ava's primary motivation for entering the pact.
- Incompatible Orientation: She has a crush for Maggie, despite everything Maggie does to her. Unfortunately, Maggie's not interested.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: Ava is quite a different person after drinking the vial. Terrifyingly so.
- Loser Protagonist: Ava's one former friend thinks she is crazy and hates her guts now. Because of Wrathia's frequent possessions which get Ava into trouble, she is eventually expelled.
- Love Martyr: Implied to have strong feelings towards Maggie. Despite everything the girl does to her, she still goes back to help her.
- Luminescent Blush: A rather literal example, complete with actual smoke exhuming from her mouth afterward.
- Magma Cum Laude: She vomits up lava. Thankfully her digestive tract is now strong enough to handle it.
- Meaningful Name: Ire is a synonym for wrath. Plus, her name is two letters away from 'Lava Fire'.
- More Than Mind Control: When Ava takes on the "curse."Maggie: I think it was Ava. But at the same time, it wasn't. It was as if she had been consumed by some kind of...primordal chaos.
- My Blood Runs Hot: After signing the pact with Wrathia. Discussed unwittingly by Gil here.
- No Social Skills: Blame Wrathia for it. This bites Wrathia in the ass later because it means Ava has no idea how to find or convince Wrathia's followers to join her in her quest against TITAN.
- Older Than They Look: Ava is 15 at the beginning of the story. According to Odin, she looks about 12. Not helped by how short she is in comparison to him.
- Parental Abandonment: Ava has no idea what's happened to her parents, but she knows that TITAN separated them.
- Person of Mass Destruction: After drinking Wrathia's vial.
- Perverted Sniffing: Playfully gets accused of this by Odin after she apologizes for calling him "smelly" - she thinks he actually smells nice. He seems kinda happy that she likes his scent.
- Playing with Fire: Ava gains this ability after completing the pact with Wrathia.
- Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Observe.
- Rapunzel Hair: Post-potion Ava's hair is at least twice as long as her body.
- Ship Tease: Surprsingly so with Odin. Lots of their interactions imply a budding romance between the two.
- Their second meeting gives off a BST vibe, with their Snark-to-Snark Combat
- Odin is clearly flattered from hearing Ava's description of his smell.
- And then there's the fact that he's the only character who treats her with genuine kindness. While it's possible he may have ulterior motives since she's also a host, it's a far cry from his initial plan involving Maggie.
- There's also his attempts at consoling Ava after the Wrava incident at Titan's HQ.
- Let's also not forget that Odin's demon is Pedri, Wrathia's husband.
- Socially Awkward Hero: Painfully so. Between Wrathia's possessions and her own bad luck, Ava reacts to social situations and the public like someone approached by the firing squad. When she and Odin are in TITAN's recruitment center, she has a freakout that would have carried over to the physical world had she not been distracted at an opportune moment.
- Speech Bubbles: Ava's bubbles change in font and color to scale how angry she is (and how much control she has over herself).
- Summon Magic: Ava does this during the video in Chapter 17.
- The Dog Bites Back: After everything she endures in life, being singled out in a crowd for a forcible "upgrade" into a TITAN follower over her protests is finally a bridge too far. She leaves no survivors.
- Took a Level in Badass: Especially when she confronts Wrathia during the Battle in the Center of the Mind.
- And when she transforms into Wrava and completely decimates Titan HQ.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Downplayed, but Ava is way more confrontational and less quiet after the pact than she was before.
- Doubly so after drinking Wrathia's vial. She shows no remorse or regret for wiping out Titan HQ, and even says that everyone there deserved to die.
- Transformation of the Possessed: Unwittingly agrees to this when trapped with the "saved" Prudith.
- Treasure Chest Cavity: Doubling as an extra pocket and a portal between the physical world and her mind where Wrathia resides, she gains a drawer in her chest after the pact.
- With Friends Like These...: With Maggie, but she could have easily been lying to prove her point against Odin.
- Would Hurt a Child: Under the influence of Wrathia's vial, Ava slaughters an entire room of followers... some of which were mere children.
- Your Size May Vary: Especially when not showing anything beneath her waist. This seems a case more of Art Evolution, as she starts off apparently half Odin's height, but more recently has been shown to be only about one-and-a-half heads shorter than he is typically.
Magnolia "Maggie" Lacivi
Another child brought to the re-education planet and one of few children Ava has ever been friends with, although the friendship didn't last long due to Wrathia's tampering. She is odd in her own right and seems to have a few issues about image. She has problems with Odin who she views as a stalker, and is arguably justified in thinking so. She also has an enormous crush on Gil.
- Ambiguously Brown: Has dark skin. Word of God states she would be considered Afro-Latina in our world.
- Ax-Crazy: Shows signs of this when she commits random acts of violence in her Dream World and crashes the spaceship she's traveling in when someone ticks her off.
- Berserk Button: Don't call her ugly, monstrous, or scary, she will take it out on you.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While they are, for various reasons, hardly innocent, Maggie makes sure to play up Ava and Odin's flaws to Gil and outright lies about her involvement in the ship crashing to ensure she stays on his good side.
- Eventually she is called out on this.
- Converting for Love: Maggie decides to enlist as a follower of TITAN not long after she falls for Gil. Note that she doesn't know much about TITAN and has no real interest in the religion itself.
- Dark Action Girl: While probably not evil, she can be violent and is quite the Jerkass.
- Dreamworks Face: Yup.
- Elemental Eye Colors: Her green eyes match her plant based powers.
- Emotional Powers: Like Ava, her pact side acts up when she is angry or flustered. As seen here and here.
- She's pretty much full-flower here from frustration and embarrassment.
- Foil: According to Word of God, Maggie was designed to be everything Ava isn't.
- Foreshadowing: Maggie is confident she'll survive Odin's ship crashing. She already knew that pact holders are Nigh Invulnerable.
- Glowing Eyes: When Tuls is getting ready to cast his magic.
- Green Thumb: Maggie has shown the ability to convert her arms into surprisingly strong vines/tree branches for combat purposes, an ability she gained after forming a pact with her demon.
- Has a Type: And Odin, she declares, is not it.
- Healing Factor: Openly admits that a spaceship that she's on crashing into the ground of a random planet won't kill her. It doesn't.
- Heroic Resolve: When Ava rampages in her "Wrava" state, Maggie showcases this several times, saving Gil and trying to get him to focus on surviving instead of suffering Heroic BSoD over the death of countless civilians.
- Hidden Depths: While in an area where their Mental Worlds meet, Maggie curiously turns back into "her old self" (with shorter, dark brown hair and an outfit alike to the one she wears in the childhood photo she keeps of her and Ava), asking "What would YOU know about helping ME?", which, beyond Wrathia's possession of Ava to say horrible things to people, seems to imply some kind of particular event happened in their past. There's also the item upon her neck in her Mental World, which, if guesses are true, says a lot without anyone in-story saying anything about it so far.
- Hypocrite: As far as we know. She's disgusted by Stalker with a Crush actions (Tuls') or likelihood (assumed of Odin), but for some reason doesn't connect that her use of a flower that likely works as a Love Potion would demean and deprive someone's freedom, choice and personhood the same way. Unless the flower isn't about making someone to fall for her against their will; this is assumed from Tuls' flowery "the scent of the flower to help the person uncover...the desire in their heart...to be your significant other" and "several uses" of previous flowers (the current one is too fragile for more than "one use" and "might wilt" afterwards), but it's to be seen what it specifically does.
- Incompatible Orientation: Her fawning for Gil falls on deaf ears, considering he's in love with a boy.
- It's All About Me: She doesn't show a shred of compassion or interest in people outside her obsessive hunt for a relationship. She's displeased that Odin and Ava survived the crash she caused, talks Gil into abandoning them at the first opportunity, and feigns interest in his life while appealing to Tuls for a means of manipulating him into caring for her. She's pretty much a by-the-book malignant narcissist.
- Though there are hints this isn't entirely the case- Wrathia's early possession of Ava shows that Maggie has good reason to think she's the cruel Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, and when the two meet in Maggie's headspace she doesn't seem to believe Ava is real, looking genuinely horrified after seeing Wrava and realizing the truth. Then there's the fact that Odin's early behavior (and his words) do make him look like a Stalker with a Crush, and it's pretty clear that Tuls is one.
- Jade-Colored Glasses: There are hints she wears these. Ava states she "wasn't always this reckless and mean," and despite everything she tends to hit the bad traits of people around her right on the nail, even the guys she likes—she acknowledges Gil's fanaticism, and is caustic or worse towards Ava and Odin, Ava likely due to Wrathia's occasional possession of her and Odin because he came off like a Stalker with a Crush and hit her Berserk Button.
- She tells Gil she stopped asking why Ava commits horrible acts a long time ago.
- Jerkass: She tends to be very defensive and isn't prone to acts of charity - she's yelled at Tuls so much that he's afraid of her.
- Jerkass Has a Point: She brings up the very good point of Gil asking TITAN about his parents' survival when they first meet, something which apparently hadn't crossed his mind for a long time (unless there's a reason for it, but so far it's unknown why it hasn't).
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her hostility towards Ava, Maggie still keeps a picture of her in her pact door. This indicates she still cares about her.
- Luminescent Blush: Whenever she's talking to Gil.
- Meaningful Name: Maggie Lacivinote . Additionally, "Maggie" is short for "Magnolia," a type of flower.
- Mundane Utility: She either uses the key of her pact door to bind up her hair or her hair to hide her pact door key.
- Nerves of Steel: Though she looks visibly freaked out during the rampage through TITAN HQ, she shifts gears into Action Survivor mode easier than Gil.
- Parental Abandonment: It seems none of the children at their school have parents. Maggie's parents have never been mentioned.
- Serial Romeo: She's on love interest number 6 in 4 years plus she hates to be reminded of her previous crushes. It's always real love this time.
- Smitten Teenage Girl: Apparently Maggie's half of her pact with Tuls is to find her true love or something to that note. She's tried five times and Gil is number six. She's even willing to overlook that Gil is a religious fanatic and a little mentally unstable. And possibly not into girls at all.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: To the objects of her infatuation, she's syrupy-sweet. To everyone else, she's cold at best.
- Transflormation: Voluntarily changes her limbs into branches and vines as part of her pact with Tuls.
- Treasure Chest Cavity: The door in her chest from her pact.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Ava destroying the TITAN HQ and Gil becoming a fugitive wouldn't have happened had she not crashed Odin's ship onto Gil's planet out of spite.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Ava. Though she's made it clear that she doesn't care for Ava anymore, she still has a Former Friends Photo nailed on the inside of her door.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green, which she most likely gained after forming a pact with her demon.
- Youthful Freckles: On her nose and cheeks, and scattered across her arms.
A student who attended Ava and Maggie's class and has an odd interest in Maggie. Little is known about Odin aside from the fact that he hails from a different planet than Maggie and Ava. His age was rather nebulous at best, as he is stated to be the same age as the others yet looks far older, but was later revealed to be 18 by Crow and Raven. At the start of the story, Odin tries to convince Maggie to leave the planet with him, and insists that she is in danger from something.
- Agent Scully: Seems to really enjoy poking holes in the logic of TITAN's existence and power.
- Big "NO!": After he learns his ship crashed.
- Blue Blood: Unconfirmed, but it seems that way...
- Butt-Monkey: Almost every woman in the comic has tried to throw Odin under the bus at some point. Maggie, Ava, hell, even his sisters for no apparent reason.
- Carpet of Virility: He's got the most scruff of the main characters by a large margin, as his beard, short sleeves, and the later slash across his shirt show.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Odin has either this or a low level of Super Strength, but repeatedly he's shown to be surprisingly strong. He can lift Ava with one arm and, if motivated enough, pry open an automatic steel and glass door.
- Deadpan Snarker: Made even funnier thanks to his stoicism and his stutter. He and Ava snark up a storm when they meet for a second time, and he moves into Tall, Dark, and Snarky territory as the story moves along.
- Death Glare: Gives a truly amazing one here while looking at his brokennote phone thing. Seriously, HOLY CRAP.
- Determinator: Despite how callously his siblings treat him, he refuses to back down on the mission he's been sent on, for both Magpie's sake and as an apparent duty to his parents.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He's got a huge one running along his right side. He's had it since he was about ten and it's heavily implied to be what killed him and caused him to be Pedri's host. It resembles a zipper. He had to sew it up himself.
- Half-Human Hybrid: According to Word of God, he's got some non-human alien ancestry.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Not romantic but Ava is short enough that Odin can hold her aloft with one hand. As seen here.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sure, he's often cold and blunt but he's notably the only one who actually seems to treat Ava nicely. There's also the implication that he's close to his mother and Magpie.
- Little "No": Several, after the Big "NO!".
- Meaningful Name: Odin is the Norse god of death. Arrow sounds a lot like "arrogant", aka Pride.
- Nerves of Steel: He handles the rampage and destruction of TITAN HQ better than Gil, and is not as visibly freaked out as most of the few other survivor, just grimacing as his surroundings become molten. He comes off a bit like a Shell-Shocked Veteran, especially in understating the situation as a "m-mess" to Pedri.
- Not So Stoic: He gets noticeably grumpy when TITAN is mentioned, even calling his worship a "cult." He also freaks out when he finds out what happened to his ship.
- Pardon My Klingon: After seeing the results of Ava's summoning he says "Mother of Giants" (Mother of God) in Norse runes.
- Rescue Romance: What he was planning...maybe. Averted later- though he claimed he wanted this early on, it's shown that he was actually interested in Maggie because she's a host and he promised to bring one back home in the hopes of changing his world.Raven: All ya' hadda' was bring back the one person...
Crow: ...instead you destroyed the ship and ended up here.
Raven: AND you suspiciously ignored his calls so he's PISSED.
- Rags to Riches: Either this or Riches to Rags (or both) have probably happened sometime in the past. Word of God confirms he's literally starved before, but the general luxury of Olai's office and the picture in it imply his family is wealthy.
- Ship Tease: Let's see...
- He's nice to Ava (and the only one who is).
- He's flattered by Ava's comment on his smell (see Smells Sexy below).
- He tries to calm Ava down while they're walking through a crowd of followers, even urging her to hold onto his hand.
- He refuses to leave Ava behind, even after the whole Wrava incident.
- And then there's his being a host to Pedri, Wrathia's husband.
- Smells Sexy: Maybe not sexy, but Ava thinks he smells nice, like smoke and pine trees. Odin hasn't decided whether he's flattered or not. The Luminescent Blush implies he might be.
- Speech Impediment: He has a persistent problem with S-s-t... stuttering, such that Ava completes a word that he has exceptional trouble getting out.
- Stalker with a Crush: At least in Maggie's (and Ava's) opinion. It's unclear to what extent Odin pursues her, but she has complained more than once to the school administration. It's hinted that he pretended to be one to (unsucessfully) play to Maggie's romantic notions.
- Stalker Without a Crush: It turns out he was stalking Maggie because of Tuls, not any attraction to her.
- The Stoic: Odin is hardly fazed by anything, no matter how grim the situation seems. His facial expression is one of perpetual seriousness, and he rarely has any emotional outbursts. Later chapters increasingly avert this.
- The Stoner: With his beard, pipe and stoicism, Odin gives off this vibe. It could also explain why he looks older than everyone else and his red pupils. Actually confirmed when we see a Fantastic Drug that he was keeping in a Book Safe.
- Stutter Stop: Odin usually speaks with a significant stutter, but when Maggie nearly kills Odin by hijacking and crashing his ship, his speaking abilities suddenly improve (although the stutter is still present). He doesn't stutter when he lies too.
- Technicolor Eyes: His pupils are red. Since his sisters don't share it and he had black pupils in his flashback sequence to his childhood, it's implied to be an effect of Pedri's possession that's noticeable in-universe.
- Vague Age: He states that he's 16, though even Ava comments that he doesn't look it. Later, Odin explains he's unfamiliar with Titan time and miscalculated his age in Titan years wrong. He's confirmed as 17 going on 18.
- Virgin-Shaming: Crow makes fun of Odin being a "Virgin Nerd-Lord".
A blue-skinned boy from another planet and an aspiring doctor. Close friends with Nevy Nervine and has promised to ask TITAN a very important question on her behalf. He seems to be kind-hearted and perfectly willing to help others at his own expense. Reveres TITAN as a sort of leader/god.
- Arbitrary Skepticism: For a guy who's bonded to an intangible spirit, he's awfully dismissive of Ava confessing that she made a pact with a spirit, especially since she underwent a Transformation of the Possessed and gained superpowers right in front of him. The skepticism might be tempered both by distrust by distrust of the given explanation and absolute horror at watching Ava massacre Followers with fire and lava.
- Back from the Dead: He was dying of acid burns when the followers saved him. He might have been Only Mostly Dead (though unlikely considering how demons attach to people), but he definitely considers it this trope, symbolically at least.
- Berserk Button: He seems to turn a bit... tetchy, whenever someone points out the shaky logic in his religion. He even calls Ava and Odin "heathens."
- Beneath the Mask: For all his unquestioning devotion, he's shown to be subconsciously aware of what kind of entity TITAN might be.
- Earlier on he also occasionally gives away his awareness that TITAN's society isn't actually sunshine and rainbows with quips like, "We don't want the guards arresting me for not turning you in!" while nervously laughing, which Odin responds to with the "Oh! We don't!?" and a funny expression. While revealing to Ava what TITAN's people actually do to refugees, Odin also implicates him with "F-followers do all of TITAN's dirty work," though it's possible it's due to Gil not knowing exactly what's done ("They're trained to turn in 'sad refugees' who've b-been 'led astray.'"), likely (as is classic) because he didn't want to ask/really find out.
- From his childhood flashback it's shown he was aware of what would happen if adults/higher ups found out he talked to someone no one else could see (but still converses with Nevy at the time anyway), and his dialogue with the principal seems to focus more on his wanting to avoid being made into a soldier, and to find out more about why he and Nevy are linked together, than any real care for TITAN (what happened in the interim to make him dig his feet in is unknown).
- Break the Cutie: His time at TITAN HQ. A person he fixed up/healed out of the goodness of his heart goes on a rampage and destroys the entire base, his fellow survivors are a kidnapper and a liar/attempted murderer and when the former three have bounties placed on their heads for obvious reasons, he's included in the headcount, all because he brought them there.
- Combat Medic: His goal is to become one.
- Freudian Slip: When talking to a "friend" that he knew in school.Gil: It's been such a long time! How long has it been? S-seven, maybe eight years? Y-you look swell! Er-I mean-you look like you're doing swell!!
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: He says "gosh" and "golly" a lot.
- Hypocrite: Calls out Maggie for lying to him, citing that liars don't get into Paradise. This is despite the fact he happily cheated on his exam to become a follower in the first place!
- Innocent Blue Eyes: A Nice Guy with blue eyes who thinks the best of everyone and wants the best for everyone.
- Innocently Insensitive: Nice or not, Gil also has a tendency to inadvertently insult those who don't share his faith in TITAN. He calls Maggie "ignorant" for not knowing TITAN's history and when Ava asks if there's a way back from Paradise, Gil dismisses it as "a stupid question." Goes further when Odin and Nevy speculate that TITAN's just using his followers.Gil: It's the GREATEST honor to get into Paradise, alright? After all my hard work... I'm going to live there. IN BLISS. And the first thing I'll do when I get there is send you heathens enough photographic evidence to make you both sorry!
- I Reject Your Reality: He tends to violently attack anything that would harm his perfect image of TITAN and his place in it. He refuses to accept that he's a host despite speaking with a demon on a regular basis, dismisses any evidence that TITAN is anything but perfectly generous despite being on the dark side of that failed generosity himself, and hates Ava for killing an entire stadium of TITAN worshipers when they tried to mutilate her—though in fairness, she definitely did kill more than she really needed to. This isn't helped by Maggie constantly telling him horrible things about Ava and agreeing with everything he says in an effort to get close to him.
- Meaningful Name: His last name, Marverde, is made of the Spanish words 'mar', meaning "sea", and verde, meaning "green". The ocean on the planet that he's from is green. Also, his life was defined by something happening to him while he was swimming, which he seems to have enjoyed doing regularly, so his first name takes on obvious meaning.
- The Medic: He wants to join TITAN's army as a doctor and believes he is moderately skilled already. Subverted when his case file shows he's intended to be a Janitor in a Hospital, then made a moot point when Ava destroys the building before he gets his assignment.
- Nerves of Steel: He has no contract and no clue his own potential for power. Does not stop him from giving Ava a freaking serious What the Hell, Hero? moment after he's seen her massacre an entire planet and knows how goddamn dangerous she is.
- Nice Guy: He takes in 3 strangers who crash-landed in his yard and could be criminals for all he knew and nurses them back to health, no questions asked. Becomes less so when they get to discussing his religion, showing off a serious defensive streak.
- Pretty Boy: Looks like one, and given how Ava and Maggie react to him...
- Religious Stereotype: In his defense, he was raised by a cult who rescued him from the destruction of his entire planet.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's blue with white hair.
- Straight Gay: He appears oblivious to Maggie's not-at-all-subtle advances, but gets flushed and tongue-tied at the sight of a male former classmate. Confirmed by Word of Gay.
- What the Hell, Hero?:
- Gives this to Maggie on page 1710 when he finds out how exactly she, Odin and Ava ended up on his planet.
- And again to Ava when, in a fit of rage, she mocks TITAN's followers and says straight to his face that she'd gladly kill everyone in TITAN HQ all over again (remember, this includes Stategos Six, the person who saved him). Complete with Armor-Piercing Slap.
Magdalai "Magpie" Arrow
The youngest of the Arrow triplets.
- Ambiguous Situation:
- Magpie suddenly went missing, with no trace of her whereabouts.
- Like her siblings, she has rectangle pupils. However, just as Odin's are red due to his status as a demon holder, hers are blue instead of dark purple.
- Butt-Monkey: According to Odin, she often got the short end of the stick for being the youngest child.
- Family Theme Naming: Her fellow triplets are named Crow and Raven, two better known birds in the Cordivae family.
- Morality Pet: To Odin, who according to Word of God, considers her his favorite sibling.
- Walking Spoiler: She's not officially revealed and explained until Chapter 23.
The eponymous Demon herself. Not much can be said about her back-story without spoiling, but suffice to say that she is/was very powerful and considers herself a higher being than others, which may not be so far from the truth. She has been tied to Ava from the day Ava was born and had taken it upon herself to makes her life as miserable as possible with semi-good reasons. Hates TITAN with a passion.
- Alpha Bitch: Abused and tormented a child for 15 years for absolutely no reason. She continues to berate Ava even after they pact, and Word of God confirms she feels no remorse for her treatment of Ava.
- Battle Couple/Happily Married: With Pedri.
- Bi the Way: Was once in a relationship with Nevy Nervine. It's uncertain exactly what happened between them.
- Black Widow: She's been married before and her current husband Pedri wears the skull of her former husband as a Cool Mask. This has implications.
- Big Red Devil: A feminine example, complete with goat pupils.
- Brains and Brawn: While both are smart and strong warriors, she's the Brawn to her husband's Brain, as seen in the flashback; she was ready for a war while Pedri suggested more careful planning.
- Burning with Anger: Hellish Habañero, though she isn't exactly wreathed in flames. Rather, her body becomes so hot that it starts burning her clothes and melting her crown, which in the kickstarter book, is noted to be made of obsidian.
- Cute Monster Girl: A lot more human-looking than her husband.
- Dare to Be Badass: Says this to Ava on page 1336 while the former is trapped in the Gates of Paradise at TITAN's Headquarters and understandably freaking out. She pops one of the magic potions that she created with the pact book (that are supposed to be so powerful that Wrathia couldn't conceive her needing to use more than one, ever) into Ava's hand and tells her to go out and kick ass.
- Depraved Bisexual: She and Nevy Nervine were once lovers, and she's not a nice person.
- Does Not Like Shoes: The "too important to walk anywhere" variation. Ava adopts this too when she lets Wrathia take the wheel.
- Dramatic Wind: When in her ghost form, her hair tends to move like it's underwater.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Seemed to sincerely love her husband and unborn child and despite chafing at the idea, considered surrendering to TITAN if it meant he'd leave her subjects alone.
- Even Evil Has Standards: It's subtle, but when she explains to Ava about how she tried to commit suicide so she could be free, she closes her eyes and looks away with disgust, implying that she does not enjoy what she is doing, and was only doing it as a last resort.
- Fangs Are Evil: Great for Cheshire Cat Grins, too.
- Fantastic Racism: Looks down on just about everyone who isn't a member of either her race or empire.
- Foil: The way Wrathia treats Ava is a huge contrast to how Nevy treats Gil.
- Hellish Pupils: She has horizontal slit pupils.
- The High Queen: Insists she was the beloved leader of her empire but given how she behaves in the present, her subjects might have had a different opinion.
- Hoist by Her Own Petard: Most of Wrathia's current problems are her own fault. Ava refuses to make the pact until it's absolutely necessary because Wrathia never told explicitly what it was or how it worked. Wrathia also wrecks Ava's interpersonal relationships, meaning Ava has no idea how to convince Wrathia's soldiers to join her. The fact that Wrathia is a Demon at all is also her fault.
- Also worth noting that when Ava threatens to deliberately fail the pact, which would destroy Wrathia's hopes and trap her in what is implied to be a hellish existence she states "I have nothing to lose," which is only true because Wrathia destroyed everything she cared about and then tried to weasel out of helping her.
- Horned Humanoid: A tidy set of ram horns to complement the demonic imagery.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Pedri was at least two heads taller than her. In a twist, before she became a demon, she was actually much bigger than a normal human.
- Jerkass: Ruined Ava's life by constantly abusing her.
- Large and in Charge: Another zig-zagging trope. Standing next to her husband and TITAN, Wrathia looks rather petite. Then we learn that naturally, she's several stories tall. Really puts into context how tall both Pedri and TITAN are and why she complains about how short Ava is.
- Loophole Abuse: Tries to use this to force Ava to fulfill the pact by pointing out Ava asked for a "new life," not a "different life". Ava will have none of that.
- Meaningful Name: Wrathia Bellarmina.
- Moral Myopia: In her view, if it advances her vendetta against TITAN, anything's fair game.
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: Tries to enact this against TITAN to ensure that she, Pedri and her strongest warriors have the chance to die free and to acquire reinforcements in the form of Lifeform Hosts. She is pissed when she finds out she is attached to Ava.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Ruining Ava and Maggie's friendship means Ava is isn't very confident about recruiting Maggie, who isn't known for her forgiveness, for the anti-TITAN army.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Wrathia is very touchy-feely with most people (especially Ava.) It's a trait she shares with her husband.
- Pet the Dog: Kinda. She calms down a little after she and Ava make the Pact and when Ava has genuine questions about how to carry out her side of the pact, Wrathia offers up some sincere wisdom. Of course before giving her advice, she tried to weasel out of giving Ava exactly what she wanted.
- Playing with Fire: Gave Ava fire based powers after the pact.
- Poor Communication Kills: It somehow never occurred to Wrathia that in order to convince Ava to make a Pact with her that she would have to do more than say "PACT" at her incessantly.
- Rapunzel Hair: Has long hair throughout her life and afterlife, but it's at its longest in her ghost form.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: A red-eyed bully with a Hair-Trigger Temper and Moral Myopia.
- Regular Caller: Has been asking Ava to make a pact for a good portion of her life.
- Satanic Archetype: To TITAN's Crystal Dragon Jesus.
- Second Face Smoke: Does said act to Ava during the first meeting in their mind.
- Secondary Character Title: Technically, the title refers to Wrathia, despite not actually referring to her name.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: It's one of the many ways she torments Ava.Wrathia: (talking to Ava on the phone) What are you wearing?...because I'm not wearing anything.
- Smoking Is Cool: Is shown smoking during her reign as queen and in Ava's mind, twice.
- Villain Protagonist: Despite her lackadaisical bath scenes and sudden attempts at pepping Ava up. After all, she was a living nightmare towards Ava before their pact, helps Ava go mad with power and Ax-Crazy as their strengthened form, Wrava, and has lately been shown in even grimmer light as of Chapter 20, with her failing to elaborate on the consequences of her "curse." There's very little indication that her fight might be more philanthropic than Evil vs. Evil, and it's highly likely she hasn't been completely forthwith about her past and any further realities involving the pact.
- Would Hurt a Child: Wrathia is the reason Ava is so messed up in the first place.
Next to nothing is known about Nevy's past, which is due to her full-blown amnesia. She is bubbly and good friends with Gil, who she wants to keep out of harms way. At times, she seems very possessive of Gil and is prone to being jealous of people he gives attention to. Nevy desires to ask TITAN about her past after she heard that he is omniscient, and desperately wants to learn the truth about herself and who she is.
- Alliterative Name: Nevy Nervine.
- Badass Adorable: It's worth pointing out that the person Wrathia mentions as being strong right after her husband Pedri is Nevy, and she's adorable.
- Bi the Way: Was in a relationship first with Wrathia, then in a relationship with Pedri, both of which left her with a lot of anguish.
- Bubble Gun: Frequently seen blowing bubbles or making bubble animals. In this scene she's making fish.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: It's almost like she doesn't want Gil to have any other friends. Of course, with her being intangible and everything, their relationship is strictly platonic. However, her behaviour recently casts doubt in this. When they seemed set to finally become followers of TITAN and fulfil their dreams, she is leaning on him....in what looks suspiciously like a wedding dress, complete with two necklaces.
- While her wording comes off ambiguous for the moment, her outfit turned out to likely be the memory of a Pimped-Out Dress she wore before her death and amnesia, as touching her image in Wrathia's book transformed her current outfit into the same dress. Though it's to be seen what kind of Pimped-Out Dress it is.
- Cute and Psycho: No word yet, but the way she compares people to baited fish on page 801 and 803 raises a few questions.
- Deadpan Snarker: Early on, her conversations with Gil are tinged with this at times, such as "Yes Gil, it's not suspicious in the least [that every person who survived the flaming ship-crash is surprisingly intact]."
- Death Glare: Oh, wow Nevy.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Despite her apparently being GREAT friends with Wrathia, calling her evil could be a stretch. That said, she really, REALLY doesn't approve of Wrathia killing herself instead of fighting TITAN and makes a point of letting both Ava and Wrathia know it.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Speculated to be or become this—a theory based mainly on her association with the sin of envy and her reluctance to let Ava & co into her and Gil's lives. Plus, she's a green-eyed monster.
- She was in a Love Triangle with Wrathia and Pedri, having loved both at different times but both chose to leave her for each other. So far, it's ambiguous as to whether she envied them for leaving her, but Wrathia is shown to have been jealous of the other two when they were together.
- Horned Humanoid: Magenta ones.
- Identity Amnesia: It appears as though Nevy has trouble remembering her past, even though she knows her own name (she thinks her name is Nevy, anyway) and feels as though her home and life were taken from her. We don't know precisely what caused it, but it may have something to do with Wrathia's 'cursed wine'. Nevy is, after all, a demon, and this page has Wrathia filling a bottle that matches Nevy's colour scheme and maritime themes.Nevy: But what life? Why can't I remember? I wish my head would stop swirling.
- Irony: Wrathia refers to Nevy as someone who isn't "a sad sack" (quote unquote) like Tuls is, but when Gil initially meets Nevy at his TITAN school, she's very gloomy over her loss of memories, and while she isn't totally so later on, she can fall into what seems like brooding moods, judging by her expressions when she's quiet yet giving people looks. Whether she's different with her memories may be discovered in Chapter 21.
- Judge, Jury, and Executioner: Turns out to be a very personal mission of hers, as a high priestess who considers it her role to send criminals to face divine justice."Your time of judgement has come. ♥"
- Large and in Charge: Not explicitly shown but heavily implied given that she's a contemporary of Wrathia. Wrathia, of course, has nothing but disdain for creatures smaller than she is, stands upwards of several stories tall at her natural size and so far has nothing but good things to say about Nevy. When she and Nevy were together, they're shown to be of equal height.
- Making a Splash: Not shown in-story yet, but heavily implied with her oceanic appearance and bubble-making powers.
- Meaningful Name: "Nevy" is an anagram for "Envy". It's also very close to 'Navy', which is a shade of blue (her hair is blue, but not navy blue specifically), and ties into her associations with water. "Nervine" is also an archaic word having to do with the soothing of nerves and medicine.
- No Sense of Personal Space: She's not corporeal enough for it to bother him (or even for him to notice), but the way she's leaning on Odin here gives one pause, especially given how she normally reacts to outsiders.
- Pimped-Out Dress: She used to own one, complete with Giant Poofy Sleeves. Maybe.
- Principles Zealot: After regaining her memories she spares no concern over how she flushes out the traitor, though there's a shred of ambiguity as to whether she sees Ava as separate from Wrathia as a person. Interestingly, one of her last comments immediately beforehand is experiencing "waves of holy energy."
- Rapunzel Hair: Much like Wrathia's.
- Say It with Hearts: Or broken hearts. Either way, it has a really nice effect.
The demon possessing Maggie. Green, with a thing for plants.
- Alliterative Name: Tuls Tenebrose.
- All Love Is Unrequited: His half of the pact is visiting a girl named Ranunculae he liked in his previous life and giving a Love Confession in person. He doesn't even care if his feelings are returned or not, it's just getting them off his chest is what he cares about. He doesn't even consider what he'd do if she returns them.
- As You Know: Here.Tuls: Once more... I am going to remind you... of the rules behind my magic.
- Bodyguard Crush: Ranunculae is a princess and he was a guard.
- Brought Down to Normal: Whatever counts as normal for Tuls is up for discussion but he says outright that he's losing his magic.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Wrathia admits he's strong (it's why he was recruited by her, after all), but only when he's in a particularly good mood. Which is usually never.
- Full-Name Basis: Downplayed. He calls Maggie 'Magnolia', but doesn't use her last name up until this page.
- Gentle Giant: Easily twice as large as Maggie, yet appears to be one of the nicer demons.
- Heart Symbol: Has some of these decorating his shoulders. Keep in mind that half of them are cut cleanly in two.
- Horned Humanoid
- Killer Rabbit: Ava notes he doesn't seem nearly as frightening as Wrathia or even his Host, Maggie. That said, he's a person that Wrathia approves of, under ideal circumstances anyway. But he can pull off a rather menacing look.
- Mad Artist: Maybe not "psychopath-mad" but he's a great painter and he does give the impression of being not all there.
- Meaningful Name: "Tuls" is as an anagram for both Lust and Slut. And as an added bonus, "Tenebrose" can mean gloomy.
- This may also tie into his "plants and flowers"-theme, with his first name sounding a bit like "tulip" and his last name sounding a lot like "tuberose".
- Noble Demon: So far. He doesn't seem particularly vicious and the only things he wants are to make sure Ranunculae is safe and confess his love for her.
- Perpetual Frowner: He always has a sad expression. Even his door has a frown on it.
- Plant Aliens: Clearly nonhuman with his tree-like torso, horns and red leaf hair but human enough that Ava isn't too scared of him. This also technically makes him a Redhead In Green.
- The Quiet One: Doesn't talk nearly as much as Wrathia and Nevy.
- Silent Snarker: Just look at that face. LOOK AT IT.
- The Stoic: He tends not to emote that much.
- Token Good Teammate: Of all the demons we've seen so far, he's the kindest, sweetest and least malicious to anyone.
- True Art Is Angsty: He liked a girl named Ranunculae, but died before he Could Spit It Out. He now spends his days in Maggie's Dream World, painting portraits of Ranunculae to the point of bordering on a Room Full of Crazy.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Has an even more improbable skin tone than the rest of cast. From a whole planet of fiery red aliens, hes the only purple guy so far.
- Battle Couple: He and Wrathia were a Happily Married pair of powerful warriors.
- Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism: Both he and Wrathia have horns, which is apparently standard for Vengess, but apparently some males have three eyes. Also, his hands have only three fingers and a thumb, unlike most other characters with the exception of Ranunculae.
- Berserk Button: When Ava voices her disgust with her new horns, complaining that now that she's become so much like Wrathia, she's "become a horrid beast!" Pedri responds. Loudly.Pedri: THE MOUTH ON THE PARASITE IS DISGUSTING! HOW DARE SHE!! WRATHIA IS COMPOSED ONLY OF SUPREME BEAUTY!! TELL THE LEECH TO RETRACT HER STATEMENTS! FOR THEY ARE FALSE!! BOY?! ARE YOU LISTENING?! INFORM THE LEECH THAT WRATHIA IS THE SCORCHING EMBODIMENT OF MAGNIFICENCE!! DO IT NOW!!!
- Brains and Brawn: While both are smart and strong warriors, he's the Brain to his wife's Brawn, as seen in the flashback; she was ready to go on the warpath while he suggested more careful planning.
- Cool Mask: Wore a three-eyed skull mask most often. The skull belonged to Wrathia's former husband.
- Cute Little Fangs: His under-bite, as par for the rest of the males of his species.
- The Cynic: He doesn't talk much, but when he does, it's to predict the worst. It's like he less represents Pride and moreso Mortality Phobia.
- "Be smart... surrendering will not guarantee our survival.
- "...you'll die too soon to find your answer."
- And of course, the glaring exception.
- "OH, THE GRAVE YOU HAVE DUG FOR YOURSELF!"
- This also extends to himself. Once he realized both Wrathia and Nevy were in the same place as him, he eventually assumes they are plotting against him in passionate contempt, despite the fact that Wrathia throughout the story holds him on as high a regard as he does her.
- Elemental Powers: The death flavor, preemptively stated via Word of God.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: It's pretty clear he loves and misses his wife. It would also seem that he cares (or did care) about Nevy.
- Evil Is Hammy: Pedri doesn't speak much, but when he does, he's not very subtle.
- Evil Virtues: Patience. Wrathia spent Ava's childhood trying to make her die out of a mixture of spite and impatience. Pedri's disatisfaction of Odin is similar, but the method of killing his host is vastly different: He sits back and waits.
- Horned Humanoid: Much like Wrathia's horns.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The Huge Guy to Wrathia's Tiny Girl.
- Laughably Evil: His methods of tormenting Odin are usually a bit funnier and less emotionally cruel than Wrathia's torture of Ava, especially when Ava gets the better of Odin. He's also quite a bit more over-the-top than she is, which can be quite amusing to behold at times. Especially when something gets him riled up.
- The Masochism Tango: Even though he's avoiding revealing himself to Wrathia and assumes that she's plotting against him in "passionate contempt", he's still violently defensive of her. Between that and the Love Triangle of their romantic history, theirs is a strange and fraught relationship.
- Meaningful Name: Pedri is an anagram for pride. His last name, Nanezgani, seems to be based on Nayenezgani, who was a Native American god who was the 'slayer of alien gods'.
- The Missus and the Ex: Once Pedri realizes he is surrounded by his ex Nevy and his wife Wrathia, whom he refers as his "mistresses of the flesh", he realizes he is in this situation, though he actually believes it can't possibly be a coincidence and they are plotting something against him. It's an especially ironic variation because he's also this trope for the two of them.
- No Sense of Personal Space: It would appear that Pedri finds Ava fascinating, given how intently he's staring at her on this page. On page 1111, he also tried to touch her hair. Of course, it could also be because he knows Ava houses Wrathia's soul.
- Not So Stoic:
- Obviously Evil: Does he look like a good guy to you?
- Purple Is Powerful: Dark purple skin and his wife praises him as one of her more powerful warriors.
- The Quiet One: Even more so than Tuls. Wrathia and possibly annoying/frightening Odin are the only things that cause reactions from him.
- Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Has a necklace made out of skulls in addition to his Cool Mask.
- Supernatural Is Purple: Of all the Demons so far, he's the most typically ghostlike in appearance. Word of God says he has powers invoking Death.
- Third Eye: Himself, his skull mask, a few mini-skulls on his necklace, etc.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Well, we haven't really seen enough of his face to say that he's "ugly", per se, but his wife is a Cute Monster Girl while he's a towering, three-eyed monster resembling a flayed corpse with a mouthful of fangs and a sinister mask made from one of his species' skulls.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: He wears less clothing in public than even Wrathia.
Not much is known about the entity called "TITAN". He was able to conquer Wrathia's empire of multiple galaxies in the span of a day, and his name is always written in caps. Most likely in charge of TITAN Inc., the company which established Ava's re-education planet. TITAN is rumored to be "all-knowing", although this is likely propaganda spread by TITAN Inc. His forces are said to consist of a "massive army of "followers"", but it is unknown if all of them are willing participants in TITAN's galactic conquest.
- Ambiguous Robots: The main reason why he isn't listed as a lifeform.
- Ambiguously Evil: Wrathia is against him but well, she's Wrathia. The cult indoctrination and forcible Reforging Into Minions that his followers perform in his name makes it a fair bit less ambiguous.
- Big Bad: To Wrathia and thus to Ava and the story.
- Create Your Own Villain: Odin claims that TITAN created the Silent Scavengers, who attack and ruthlessly annihilate planets under his control — or who shortly end up under his control — although this is as yet unsubstantiated.
- Crystal Dragon Jesus: He certainly promotes himself like it.
- Galactic Conqueror: It didn't take him very long to bring down Wrathia's empire.
- God-Emperor: The interstellar variety.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: We've got a face and a name, but his motivations and backstory remain a mystery. His goals are shrouded as well, as his posters only say:"TITAN has a plan for you."
- Large and in Charge: A size comparison.
- Another size comparison: That statue of Wrathia? It's to 1:1 scale. TITAN is BIGGER.
- Light Is Not Good: He's associated with white and glowing blue and his propaganda shows him as a messiah-like figure.
- Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: His divinity is left up to interpretation.
- Mega-Corp: TITAN Inc.
- Meaningful Name: As par with everybody else. For TITANs case: In Classical Mythology, Titans are gods, only bigger, older, and more questionable motives than usual.
- Monkey Morality Pose: SEE TITAN, HEAR TITAN, SPEAK TITAN.
- Occult Blue Eyes: His propaganda posters give off this vibe. Literally, when coupled with Odin declaring his following a cult. SEE TITAN.
- Running Both Sides: The Silent Scavengers seem to be under his employ, presumably to give his Followers something to unite against.
- The Social Darwinist: Implied with all his propaganda posters: "Failures don't get into Paradise."
- Villain with Good Publicity: To his followers, TITAN is The Big Good that gives their lives meaning, rules at least half this corner of the universe, and should rightfully rule the rest of it. To people like Odin or Wrathia, hes an oppressive Knight Templar that uses guns and propaganda to expand his already swollen Villain World and step on anyone who says otherwise. If you happen to be anyone else in-universe, TITAN Inc is simply a Mega-Corp that happens to be the boss of you. Sure, you can ignore the the slightly kooky workforce they have; just remember that you can live a perfectly fulfilling life as long as you do what you're told. If the Scavengers (a terrifying force that his Followers are apparently unable to save) don't get you first.
- Ambiguous Gender: Word of God confirms that Strategos identifies as Non-Binary, using They/Them pronouns.note
- Animal Motifs: Their cybernetic components put one in the mind of a mouse, with the mouthpiece resembling buckteeth. Wrava calls them a rat and TITAN, while answering their distress call, refers to them as 'my little mouse.'
- Cyborg: The only remotely organic part of them that is seen is their face and most of that is covered up too.
- Death Glare: After noticing Ava standing out in the crowd during their speech. Certainly not on par with Odin's but still enough to be unnerving.
- Another, more frightening, one here.
- Dragged Off to Hell: Their ultimate fate at Ava's hands — or entombed in molten rock at the very least.
- Escaped from Hell: And they clawed their way out afterward.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Makes an appearance in finding Gil but is officially introduced over 700 panels later.
- Knight Templar: Implied. See their image quote.
- Large Ham: During their intro speech. Especially when they get to the "Scavengers."
- Meaningful Name: Their name is a reference to Greek strategoi which were military generals.
- Mouth of Sauron: Part of their job is to address the masses of followers in TITAN's stead.
- Nigh Invulnerable: Possibly. They survived being burnt to a crisp when all the other followers (and HQ itself) disintegrated upon contact. Keep in mind Six was right in line of fire. Not only do they survive after Ava demolishes Titan HQ, they sustain little injury and still possess enough strength and agility to charge at her with a sword. And eventually they could get out of solidified lava.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: We first see them when they find Gil and later as the Mouth of Sauron for TITAN. We next see them effortlessly catching a super-heated metal door. Again, super-heated metal door.
- Number Two: Or The Dragon if you prefer, but Six is called the Second-in-Command to TITAN in their introduction.
- Raised Hand of Survival: Punching through a layer of cooled rock, no less: a clear sign that Strategos is very much alive after fighting with Wrathia.
- You Are Number 6: Literally. Strategos appears to be a title rather than an actual name. Six actually referring to Six Sigma, however.
A follower of TITAN and a colleague of Strategos Six. She helps produce machinery for the TITAN cause.
- Ambiguous Situation: Her last name is a reference to greed, one of the seven deadly sins. Additionally, the final silhouette in the cast of the main seven demon holders resembles Strategos Six's armor and a technology-based background, which would fit for a high-ranking TITAN follower such as Veevra.
- The Ghost: She currently has not physically appeared in the comic.
- Theme Naming: Her surname is a corruption of the word "avarice", meaning "greed".
Loyal follower of TITAN and classroom mate to Gil.
- Asshole Victim: The best way to put it after her lack of manners. Or at least kind of a jerkass victim, anyway.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: She worked hard and dreamed of serving in the elites, something that has made her bitter when other less involved followers get chosen instead. She ironically gets her wish when the Gate To Paradise accidentally transforms her instead of Ava.
- Body Horror: Her transformation, followed by the procedure failing, her corpse set on fire, and then flung across the stage.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Her brain, nerves, veins, arteries, and eyes are held in place while anesthetics are injected into her as the Gate To Paradise flays her open and replaces her flesh. It's implied that the remaining organs she had left were crushed since the procedure was intended for the more petite Ava, and even if she survived that, Ava goes berserk and sets her on fire and throws her out across the stage as she begins her rampage, which, if Prudith is somehow still alive by then, she definitely did not survive that.
- Death by Irony: The only reason she was in the chamber was to force Ava to stay. The procedure isn't actually what kills her—Ava burns through her to escape. Though admittedly, the degree to which she was alive after that thing was through with her is debatable..
- Hard Work Hardly Works: As seen in Gil's flashback, she put a lot of effort into her TITAN studies and has been working towards being a follower all her life. Thus, she's infuriated when Gil asks her for help or when Ava expresses disinterest and fear at becoming a follower fit for Paradise.
- Human Aliens: Going strictly by her blue skin, body tissues and similarly shaped pupils, she seems to be a similar species to Gil. She also has fangs and cat-like eyes.
- Insufferable Genius: Top of her class, fast-tracked to a job assisting TITAN's second-in-command, and an abrasive jerk every time she opens her mouth.
- Jerkass: The way she treats Gil during the test and pushing Ava later certainly qualifies.
- Meaningful Name: "Prudith" is a portmanteau of "Prude" and "Judith". "Loone" could be "Loon" or "Alone".
- You Don't Look Like You: The unnamed woman who insults Gil during their exam and the woman at the rally were originally not the same person, but because many readers believed otherwise, Michelle made this into Ascended Fanon.
Gev Astraeus and Fira Wajiha
Gil's former classmates, now counter workers at a TITAN registry.
Fira is a character made by thecarefree, or Nami, who is a friend of Michelle.
- All There in the Manual: Fira is the host to Aarani Annisa.
- But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Neither Gev and Fira recognize Gil in their adulthood, despite Gil being known at their school for being a strange boy.
- The Cameo: They can be seen in Gil's flashback of his youth.
- Hero of Another Story: Fira is a host to the demon Aarani Annisa, but this is not important to the main story and her story will be told by her creator if she so wishes.
- Red Herring: Although Fira has flower-shaped irises and is confirmed by her creator to be a demon host, she is not an important character to the story of Ava's Demon.
- Ship Sinking: Gil seems rather happy to see Gev, but it doesn't go anywhere as Gev initially doesn't recognize him and is more focused on doing his work than catching up with him. Word of God is that Gev and Fira are dating, which is later hinted at in the comic.
- Ship Tease: After managing to break out of the debris caused by Wrava's wrath, the two consider their options on what to do until they can pick themselves back up again. As their workplace world isn't far from where Fira's mother lives, Fira offers to Gev, while blushing, to stay with her and her mother in the meantime. Gev appreciates the offer and accepts it. Word of God has also previously confirmed that they're dating.
- Skewed Priorities: After emerging from the debris after Wrava wrecks the whole place, the two mainly focus on what they're going to since now they're out of a job and a home. Although they do at least hope that everyone else escaped alive and think that this is blowing up on TITANchat... when the truth is that they're probably the sole survivors). Justified, as they didn't see what happened on the stage and their office was apparently shelled up by the petrified lava.
- Those Two Guys: They work together at the registry and seem to be friends or at least good colleagues.
- Aliens are Bastards: Their only appearance involves destruction to planet and the presumed death of all involved. Turns out TITAN created them to "unite" people against the so-called enemy.
- Humongous Mecha: They use giant robots to attack Ava's planet.
- Meaningful Name: Averted. While every single character with a name given has a name that's a Significant Anagram or means something else in Latin, Silent Scavengers just... scavenge, but aren't that silent while doing so.
- Planet Looters: What Gil says they are. Unlikely given that they attack worlds that TITAN already occupies.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: They have a red and black colour scheme, and they destroyed Ava's home planet.
- The Reveal: Odin reveals that TITAN created them to attack his own worlds so to trick people into feeling united under TITAN's protection from these scavengers.
- Meaningful Name: Ranunculus is the scientific name for the buttercup genus.
- Nice Girl: Again, according to Tuls.
- The Noseless: Being a plant alien, she doesn't breathe.
- Plant Aliens: She kind of resembles a buttercup. Which is apropos because that is what her name means.
- Posthumous Character: As far as we know. Tuls still has hope, though.
- Princess Classic: At least, that's the pedestal that Tuls has set her up upon. All the portraits of her possess this innocent smile of bliss on her face.
- Satellite Love Interest: Inverted. Being a princess of an entire planet, she was probably a Hero of Another Story, and Tuls was just a guard obsessing over her.
- Uncertain Doom: Is she alive? Is she dead? Has she turned into a "demon?" It's Tuls' job to find out.
Crow (Crowlie) and Raven (Ravenia) Arrow
- Annoying Younger Siblings: It's very clear during their first interaction with Odin that, even when threatening his life, they'll tease him with petty insults and generally act like this.
- Badass Gay: Crow is dating one of the family maids, Merita. Odin is a bit disturbed by a twelve year-old going on dates — a bit incongruous, since she's got him at gunpoint at the time.
- Cat Smile: Raven certainly has one.
- *Click* Hello: Raven gives Odin one of these in his back.
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: It's implied they might know that Odin is a host, but they tease him ruthlessly anyways.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita: Raven has this going on.
- Immortal Life Is Cheap: Perhaps — whether or not they know about Odin's extra resiliency as a host, they show this attitude towards his well-being.
- Lipstick Lesbian: Of the two sisters, Crow, the girlier one, is the one who's dating another girl (specifically their maid, Merita).
- Little Miss Badass: Implied. When we first see them, they are spying on their older brother and carrying a sniper rifle complete with scope and a trench knife, which they seem well-versed in using.
- Little Miss Snarker: They have no respect for Odin.
- Ojou: If nothing else, they both seem to hold the title of "Lady." Though it's a household maid who calls them that, their home does seem to be very fancy.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Raven's the red to Crow's blue. When they try to get Odin to leave TITAN's base with them, Crow simply demands he put on some handcuffs so they can leave. ...Raven threatens to Groin Attack him with a pistol.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: As soon as Ava goes on a rampage with the fire and lava, they decide to ditch their brother... while he's still cuffed.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: In appearance only. The first time we see Raven (the girly girl), she's holding a sniper rifle.
- Theme Twin Naming: Named in reference to Norse Mythology alongside their brother.
A maid in the Arrow household.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Her Establishing Character Moment scene is her tripping over a wire clearly in view right as Crow and Raven warn her about it. Crow seems to agree about the "cute" part.
- Lipstick Lesbian: A mild example. She's dating Crow, and while less glamorous than this trope commonly implies, she's definitely very sweet and feminine.
The eldest brother of the Arrow siblings.
- Bait-and-Switch: The audience is initially led to assume that he's a cold and calculating, antisocial young man that seems to enjoy working on machines more than he loves his family... which may still be true, but what was implied painted a completely different picture than a gamer who locks himself in his room and tells his siblings to screw off whenever they bug him.
- Basement-Dweller: Turns out to be this. He spends most of his time shut in his room so he can play video games and doesn't like interacting with people in real life. He also seems to be a bit of a geek With some insecurities, given that his TITAN Fantasy character is a giant evil king shrouded in darkness and one of his friends in the game plays a feline Magical Girl. However, he still attends to his responsibilities, albeit evidently with minimum effort.
- Big Brother Bully: Implied. Odin seems to fear him.
- The Cracker: Downplayed in that his targets are even worse than he, but he uses scavenged Scavenger technology to hack into TITAN networks and intercept their broadcasts.
- The Faceless: In his first appearance, he's only seen from the back.
- The Ghost: We've had yet to see him onscreen.
- Implied Trope: He may the silhouetted character portrait next to Crow and Raven, given that the portrait has a square-shaped background like Odin.
- Mundane Utility: He doesn't just hack into Scavenger/TITAN tech to intercept their communications, he even uses it to play his MMORPGs.
- The Sociopath: He's described as an egotist who forces even his siblings to play "mind games" for scraps of information about each other's well-being. Even his mother describes him as missing the "window to his soul".
