As Aware constantly changes scenery, characters don't often stay around for long. The characters listed here are the ones on the Important Faces page, and as such are important to the storyline somehow. Beware of spoilers!

    The Protagonist - Két
"I feel like I'm missing a lot of context here..."
Full name Két Ara. A snarky, wall-aware feline who happens to be The Hero of the comic. Goes around The Multiverse at Niv's request to find the MacGuffin.
  • Action Girl: Although she is a little bit pacifistic.
    • Faux Action Girl: Unfortunately, most of her matchups haven't exactly been in her favor.
  • All for Nothing: Everything she did, everything she endured, all the friends she made, none of it matters in the end, as Silvena effortlessly defeats her and erases her from existence.
  • Bad Liar: Két both subverts and plays this straight. If she's confronted about not being honest about something - IE, the exact nature of her powers - she's not very good at lying her way out of it. However, when given wiggle room, she's very good at distorting the truth - while she's not technically lying, she's not being entirely honest, either.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's generally carefree and makes snarky comments quite often. When she gets serious, however, she's a force to be reckoned with.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Két's wind powers are taken from her halfway through World [10]. She retains her aware-powers, and remains a force to be reckoned with anyway.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Obviously.
  • Celibate Hero: Két is one, though interestingly enough she's not a virgin - she became celibate as a direct result of teasing from the authors about gorilla kitties.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: Has this as a power thanks to the Behind the Black trope.
  • The Charmer: She's very good at talking her way out of situations, or at least getting a discussion going for long enough that some form of distraction appears which she can take advantage of. This is perhaps best displayed when she re-visits Mobius and effectively stalls Metal Sonic just by talking to him until backup better suited to fighting him arrives.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: This is both a problem and an advantage for her - she's always running around trying to help people. On one hand, it tends to get her into trouble with the villains of the world she's on. On the other hand, it often helps her fulfill her objective.
  • Combo Platter Powers
  • Deader than Dead: Silvena erases her soul from existence. RP!Ket outright states that nothing short of a "BS ex machina" would be able to bring her back.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's not above snarking at everything, up to and including elements of the fourth wall, much to Niv's annoyance.
  • Determinator: In the "semi-canon" fanfic "BS Ex Machina", she literally wills herself back to life through sheer determination not to let her story end.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Goes to the next one when she fulfills her 'objective'.
  • Doomed Protagonist: Niv alright admits in the epilogue that she was never strong enough to face Silvena and survive and would never truly have been able to get strong enough to do so. Her fate was sealed the moment her quest began.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Thanks to her spots, scars, and bow.
  • First-Person Smartass: To go along with her constant Lampshade Hanging. She's constantly snarking about things in her thought bubbles.
  • Fish out of Water: Generally finds herself at a loss when arriving in new places, but is hit hard by this in Twisted worlds.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: Despite her wall-aware abilities and her encounters with Physical Gods, Két is one of these simply because all the Gods she's had encounters with are, by her own words, "complete and utter douchewaffles".
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: Két's lack of a Fourth Wall allows her to be one of these. She can see into other panels, the events of pages that she's not in, and read speech/thought bubbles. However, this comes at a cost - unless Két has prior knowledge in regards to a situation, her knowledge is limited to what's been revealed to the audience. This means she has no idea what to expect when she ends up in Twisted worlds.
  • Future Me Scares Me: Has this attitude towards her rp self.
  • The Hero: Granted, when she's not helping people, she doesn't act much like one, but she does actively try to help everyone she meets, sometimes going out of her way to do so.
  • Hyperspace Wardrobe: Post World [7], due to her shopping trip to get clothing when she was there. She's displayed two alternate outfits, not including her Phantom Thief clothes, so far.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Years of putting up with the fourth wall made her want this. Thanks to Silverado, however, she realizes...
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: ...she actually just felt isolated because no one else had a power like hers. Silverado makes her realize that it doesn't matter what powers she has, because her True Companions will accept her no matter what that power is - and if they don't, then they're not True Companions.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Frequently does this in regards to elements of the comic and silly developments.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Két is basically always doing this.
  • Martial Pacifist: Says here that she dislikes fighting unless there's no other option, and even then she'd prefer to avoid killing if at all possible.
  • Meaningful Rename: Renames herself "Svet" in the semi-canon "BS Ex Machina" story, due to how her body is now a combination of her's and Silvena's.
  • Medium Awareness
  • Me's a Crowd: With some strategic panel-hopping, Két can effectively clone herself.
  • Offscreen Reality Warp: Két is rather fond of this. Thanks to her awareness, she can pull seemingly impossible feats when the camera's not focused on her. She later gives us an idea of how she does this sort of thing when she exits the comic and enters Niv's Photoshop window to change the opacity of the night filter to make it easier to see.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: If the focus isn't on her, Két might as well not be there- a fact which she is very much aware of and isn't afraid to take advantage of, either to run away or give her the edge in a fight.
  • Power Loss Makes You Strong: Thanks to a pep talk from Silverado, she's more willing to embrace her wall powers in combat after losing her wind powers. She's a fearsome opponent when she's not worried about keeping her wall powers a secret.
  • Rugged Scar: She has several, though at first the only one we can see is the one on her left hand. When she's turned into a Gatomon, she's revealed to have one on her chest, and when she gets a sleeveless shirt in World [7], another two are revealed - a larger one on her left arm and a small one on her right arm at around her elbow.
  • Scars are Forever: She has several scars that, while she doesn't necessarily make an active effort to hide, she doesn't really show off, either. She flat-out states in this page that several of them are from her first encounter with Blair.
  • Signature Laugh: "Nyahahahahaha!"
  • Stealth Expert: Invokes this by Breaking the Fourth Wall and hiding outside of panel to avoid being detected. She's not very good at determining when a good time to come back in is, though.
  • Thinking Out Loud: Prone to doing this, especially when something catches her off guard. While in World [2], Meta Knight catches her doing this, and informs her that it'd be better for her not to voice her thoughts if she wants to keep a low profile. She's notably more self-conscious about talking to Niv through thought after this, though she still does slip up.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The final leg of the comic is essentially her repeatedly getting kicked into the dirt both physically and emotionally, ultimately culminating in her senseless, utterly pathetic murder.
  • Undignified Death: Spends her final moments comatose and helpless, not even allowed the dignity of going out in a final blaze of glory against Silvena. She doesn't even get the final dignity of a proper burial, instead left to rot in the ruins of World O.

    The Author - Niv
"You're here so I can explain the excuse plot to you."
Full name Niv Atasha. The comic's Author Avatar, who serves as Két's Mission Control. Generally more on the sidelines, but provides narration bubbles for certain situations.

    The Watchdog - Damaru
Két: ...Do you solve all of your problems by shooting them?
Damaru: Yeah, basically.
Full name Damion Nexuti, he serves as an antagonistic Foil to Két. A weapons expert who's currently under orders to bring Két back to the Big Bad alive.
  • Blind Without 'Em: He can't see without his glasses. His vision was fine until Silverado set his eyes on fire while in control of his body.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Time Master and Space Master.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: He's being forced to work for Silvena and is not happy about it, and tends to try and delay their orders. It's more subtle than Silverado's attempts, but he could just constantly jump dimensions until he finds Két, or he could have just grabbed her and brought her back when they first ran into one another, and yet...
  • Foil: To Két. Both travel around worlds, both have a commanding voice telling them what to do or helping them out if necessary, and both help people whenever they can. However, Damaru's methods are much more questionable, and he's more prone to adhering to The Needs of the Many, whereas Két prefers helping the individual. Damaru is also quick to use lethal force, in stark contrast to Két preferring to avoid violence and only fighting if it's absolutely necessary - and even then she never seems to want to use enough force to kill.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: Considering how cheerful he was as a kid, it's likely that 44 years of dealing with Silverado caused Damaru to start wearing these at some point in time.
  • Just Following Orders: His attitude towards having to follow Silverado's and Silvena's whims.
  • The Napoleon: Had this problem in the past, due to looking like a ten year old despite being 50.
  • Not So Stoic: There are several events that cause him to (rightfully) freak out or show emotion.
  • Older than They Look: Actually 54 years old, but has the body of a 20 year old.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Damaru's real name is "Damion".
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Silverado's red.
  • The Stoic: Damaru generally remains calm under most circumstances.
  • Tecnicolor Eyes: Has purple eyes.
  • Trigger-Happy: His standard solution to most problems is to shoot them. Preferably in the face, but also in other lethal places.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He was one pre-Silverado.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite the fact that they're constantly butting heads and annoyed by one another, Damaru and Silverado really do care about each other deep down.

    The Hunter - Silverado
Full name Silverado Limano, he is the God of Death from one of the Crossroad worlds with a huge ego to go along with it. He serves as a dulled down version of Damaru's Mission Control, and like the boy himself, he's under orders to bring Két back to the Big Bad alive.

    The Lover - Blair
"Well, I haven't got any reason to kill you, so you're safe, for now at least."
Full name Blair Moxie. A wandering psycho with an affiliation for swords and fighting, and also has a major crush on Két.
  • Ax-Crazy: Seriously. His upbringing probably didn't help - he was apparently raised in a society where the strong get what they want.
  • BFS: His weapon of choice is one.
  • Blood Knight: His initial encounter with Damaru has him ask for a sparring match, mostly because he's bored and antsy, and results in a complete and utter curb stomp in which Damaru can't even get a hit in and winds up unconscious for three days.
  • Character Development: During World [12], he gets to spend some time with Két, which causes him to realize his approach to life in general might not be the best way of going about things. He vows to change his ways, though time will tell if he succeeds.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Towards Két.
  • Fish out of Water: Of a different variety than Két - while hers stems from not staying anywhere for long, his stems from the differences between his home world and the worlds he visits.
  • I Can't Sense Their Presence: Blair is masterful at controlling his energy, to the point that Damaru and Silverado are nervous because they can't sense him despite him being right in front of them due to how well he's hiding it.
  • Ki Manipulation: His powers. His energy attacks are pink in coloration.
  • Love at First Sight: Hence his title. The object of his affection, Két, does not feel the same way.
  • No Sense of Direction: According to Word of God, his sense of direction rivals Ryoga Hibiki and Roronoa Zoro's.
  • Sensor Character: Overlapping with Aura Vision- Due to his precise energy control, he can sense the energies of others, and determine what sorts of energies the people around him use.
  • The Social Darwinist: Seems to be one. Két explains here that it's largely due to their home that this is the case, but she also notes that he took it to a "stupidly extreme degree".
  • Stalker with a Crush: Két even refers to him as her "psychotic stalker".
  • Yandere: Male example. He's generally affable... until you either get on his bad side or get between him and Két. Then the reason for his nickname of "Psychotic" becomes all too apparent.

    The Boss - Silvena
"Welcome home, dear..."
A being only known as Silvena, she serves as the comic's Big Bad. She seems to be obsessed with destruction, and is interested in using Két's body as a means to her goals.
  • Big Bad: She's the one who is giving Damaru and Silverado orders. She is expanded upon, but not named, while Damaru is in World [8], before finally getting her formal introduction on page 200.
  • Black Eyes of Evil
  • Combo Platter Powers: And how.
  • Grand Theft Me: Wants to do this to Két. She succeeds. Did this in reverse to her version of Silverado - that is, forced him into her body to gain his powers.
  • Ironic Hell: In the "semi-canon" fanfic "BS Ex Machina", this is her final fate; trapped in what was once her body as a powerless spirit, unable to do anything but bicker with Comic!Ket/Svet.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Not only is she killed by RP!Ket almost immediately after achieving her ultimate victory, but "BS Ex Machina" goes a step further by reducing her to a powerless spirit forced to watch as her body is used by her archenemy, not at all dissimilar to what she did to Comic!Ket.
  • Neck Snap: How RP!Ket finally takes her down.
  • Only One Name
  • Put on a Bus: Due to her being confined in World [O], she doesn't appear in the comic that much. It's mercilessly lampshaded on the cast page.
  • Physical God: Fortunately, she's confined to her native World. Unfortunately, she has the MacGuffin.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: By the Grand Finale, she manages to achieve all her objectives by erasing Ket's soul and taking her now empty body for her own use...only to be killed by RP!Ket almost immediately afterwards.
  • That's an Order!: Can invoke this on Damaru and Silverado, and takes great pleasure in doing so.
  • Time Abyss: As a Goddess, she qualifies.
    "For millennia upon millennia, Silvena was content tormenting the small society that she had allowed to live, as it gave her a source of entertainment to liven up her dull routine."
  • Walking Spoiler: Not a terribly extreme example, but being formally introduced 200 pages in can do that to a person.
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Silvena speaks like this. It could be because she's from a Twisted world, or because she originates from many years in the past... but since Silverado has at least one of these things going for him, it's likely just her being dramatic. In "BS Ex Machina", she claims that its supposed to be a symbol of her divinity, but Svet doesn't buy it.

    The Wanderer - RP!Két 
The Wanderer 
I am what you could be, but I am not your future self.
Full name Két Ara. The Két who comes from rps, she was once a part of Két before Niv split them for plot convenience. Became a Fallen Hero due to events that happened after the split and travels the multiverse for reasons yet to be revealed.

    The Benefactor - Mr. Losroo
Now, Két. What can I do for you today?
Full name unknown, Mr. Losroo is a careful and charming man who owns and runs Lost Rooster, Inc., a newspaper company that operates in World [13-x], aka Trinus. He is as friendly as he is enigmatic, and for each question he answers another springs up in its place.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in the second Q&A special, albeit completely covered in shadow aside from a few small details. Turns out this is normal for his office, as the shadow only goes away when Két asks him to remove it.
  • Foil: To Silvena. Both are absurdly powerful beings with an interest in Két; however, while Silvena seeks to gain Két's powers for her own, Mr. Losroo wants to protect her as a member of his surrogate family.
  • Foreshadowing: Claims his first appearance will be in World [13], and his answers to the questions he's asked are littered with it. Niv has also been foreshadowing his role since the start of the comic.
  • Hope Spot: He serves as the final barrier between Silvena and Ket's soul in the finale. He barely even slows her down.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Reveals in the 3rd Q&A special that "Mr. Losroo" is an alias. His real name is unknown.
  • Not so Above It All: Upon being asked if he is Squidward, he spontaneously gains Squidward's nose and proclaims that he is art.
  • Papa Wolf: Considers his employees family and is fiercely protective of them.
  • Psychic Powers: Tends towards using Telepathy, but the full scale of his capabilities is unknown.
