Libra

    In General 
The organization that deals with all supernatural related incidents in Hellsalem's Lot. Sprouted from the "Fang Hunters", an order of vampire hunters, when Hellsalems lot first came into being they had to expand their operations, since they now had quite a few new types of enemies to fight. Their identities are a well kept secret, to the point criminals would pay literally billions just to get their hands on the membership roster.

Libra in General

  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Enough to possibly give JoJo a run for its money.
  • Badass Crew
  • Bloody Murder: The source of most of their abilities
  • Calling Your Attacks
  • Hero of Another Story: Though the story focuses on only a relatively small group of members of Libra, we see that the organization is bigger than just them, with lots of people who don't even get named. They presumably work as hard to deal with the supernatural as the main characters do.
  • Meaningful Name: This organization watches over and protects the balance of worlds in Hellsalem's Lot. Libra is the scales constellation.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: A photographer, an intellectual potted plant lover, a walking curse, a hot blooded ladies' man, an invisible werewolf girl, a stern fishman, a man whose blood was replaced with a liquified remains of a criminal are among the strangest members of the group.

    Leo 

Leonardo Watch

Voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi (Japanese), Aaron Dismuke (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leonardo_9.png

The protagonist of the series and the possessor of the Eyes of the Gods. He travels to Hellsalem's Lot to help his sister.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the manga color pages and covers his hair is dark blue, while in the anime it's changed to a maroonish brown.
  • Badass Normal: Despite his eyes he's otherwise pretty much a normal young man, yet he manages to fight back against Gamimozu, in order to protect his sister. He even manages to heavily damage the other's magical eye. Not to mention he was actually able to fight quite well using chains, and analyzing his enemy.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards his sister, and sorta towards White as well.
  • Butt-Monkey: Good God, this poor guy can't get a break. First he gets his camera stolen by a super-fast monkey, gets caught in the crossfire of a bank robbery (rocket launchers were involved) then he gets kidnapped and almost dissected, and then he's evicted when his apartment is abruptly turned into a high-end hotel...
    • Not to mention the constant abuse he gets courtesy of Zapp.
    • In the season 2 premiere, his apartment is blown up, and no one at Libra offers to pay for the damage. AND they refuse to let him ask the presidential envoy for reimbursement even though the the envoy promised Leo he'd be repayed for carrying the former's head back to his body.
    • He also gets robbed so often thieves actually know his name.
  • Camera Fiend: While he never uses it in harmful ways, he always carries a digital camera with him.
  • Character Development: He's become braver as the series progresses and steps up to the plate in the final episode of season 1.
  • The Chosen Many: He's been chosen by Liga El Metahiut, the being who gave him the "Eyes of the Gods", to witness the future great changes in history. Previous "watchers" included one of the astronauts involved in the moon landing, and someone who was close enough to Hitler to watch his entire rise and fall. According to a certain Blood Breed, Leo is special in that the merging of worlds is the single most important event in human history, and out of the endless candidates it was Leo who got to record it
  • Cowardly Lion: Leo will panic and scream his way through the myriad dangerous situations he lands in. But he never leaves anyone hanging, and he'll get the job done while crying the whole way.
  • Crazy-Prepared: As he reveals to Gilbert's assistant butler Phillip, ever since getting repeatedly mugged, Leo has developed multiple hiding spots on his person like hollowing out his right sneaker to store the majority of his cash and now keeps a deceptively small amount of petty cash in his wallet.
  • Distressed Dude: He's been kidnapped twice as of episode five. He's kidnapped again in episode six. And again in episode eleven, by none other than the show's Big Bad, the King of Despair.
    • Cemented by his frequent shouts of, "Save me, Klaus-san!"
    • He manages to avoid this in season two until the two part finale, when he's forced to obey the mysterious Dr. Gamimozu, another wielder of the All Seeing Eyes of the Gods who has taken his sister hostage. The Doctor traps him in a hotel room and tortures Leo after he fights back, and it was only thanks to Leo's resourceful trickery and delaying that Libra found out that he was in trouble in time.
  • Electronic Eyes: Whenever he uses his powers. It gives him Aura Vision, Third Eye, and other eye-related powers.
  • Erotic Dream: Has one about his waitress friend embracing him... Only to find out it was caused by a strange bat creature perching on his face
  • The Everyman
  • Eyes Always Shut: Somewhat justified in that his All Seeing Eyes of the Gods can likely see through his eyelids, and opening them allows him to use their full potential. Also, his eyes are extremely distinct, and considering what most people who know he has the eyes want to do to him, it is in his best interested to hide his powers. We say "somewhat" because his eyes were shown shut before he got his powers.
  • Eye Scream: In episode eleven, Leo is outfitted with a device that forces his eyelids open and allows the King of Despair to use his powers, and the experience is not pleasant for Leo. Whether this is because the King was staring down something that rivals an Elder Blood Breed in power or because of the device itself has yet to be explained.
    • Generally, this is what will happen if he used The Eyes of The Gods' power to maximum. His eyes will actually burns, complete with smokes as hinted in s2e9.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Averted. They allow him to use his eyes' full power more inconspicuously and he uses them to shield his eyes when driving.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: While his abilities have very little use in combat, as of the second episode his eyes have been key to stopping a major terrorist attack and dismantling a human trafficking operation.
  • Heroic RRoD: Using his power too much will overheat his eyeballs.
  • I Know Your True Name: Leonardo's eyes allow him to see the true names of the Elder Blood Breed, extremely powerful vampires that are more powerful than most of Libra's best fighters. The only reason Klaus, the organization's strongest fighter, was able to beat them was because Leonardo's eyes revealed their true names, which he used to seal them.
  • I'm Crying, but I Don't Know Why: He starts crying when he eats a burger after losing his memories of Nej.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: The series is largely from his point of view, and he was given the eyes of the Gods in order to record the events of the realm-merge from the eyes of a normal bystander. In other words, the story is his recording.
  • Living MacGuffin: His eyes make him a prime target for supernatural criminals.
  • Master of Illusion: A variant. One of the more unique uses of his eyes is projecting the things he sees as illusions in front of other people.
  • Meaningful Name: Being the possessor of the Eyes of the Gods, he can "watch" things from a different perspective that nobody else can.
  • My Greatest Failure: Blames himself being too cowardly to sacrifice his sight to save his sister's, who sacrificed hers for him(they were given a Sadistic Choice, one would receive the Eyes of the Gods, the other would become blind, and they would both be blind if they just said no).
  • Non-Action Guy: He's the only member of Libra who can't hold his own in a fight. However, he is capable of confusing his enemies via projected illusions as mentioned above.
  • Older Than They Look: He's 19 but could easily pass for someone three or four years younger. 19 is definitely young, but do you think he'd pass as a college sophomore?
  • Seeing Through Another's Eyes: His All-Seeing Eyes allows him to see through the eyes of others. He can also cause distractions by mish-mashing other people's visions.
  • Ship Tease: His relationship with White straddles an odd line between budding besties, Like Brother and Sister, and one-sided crush. It should be noted that when Aligura accuses him of having a potential girlfriend, he didn't exactly deny it.
  • Taught by Experience: His experience with being mugged also leads him to get wise in where he puts his money when he's in public.
  • True Sight: The All-Seeing Eyes of the Gods.
  • The Watcher: In volume 10, Gamimozu explains that giving this duty to Leo was the true intention of the entity who gave him the "Eyes of the Gods". Every time a War or an event that greatly changed history happened, it would appear and give those eyes to a human, and apparently record everything through them.
  • Use Your Head: How he fights back against Gamimozu. It works.
    • He also uses it against the King of Despair. It also works.
    • Zapp actually weaponized it. Whenever he encounters armor he can't pierce with his sword he tosses Leo and his thick skull at it. And it works.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Zapp. Sometimes its more Vitriol than Best Buds, but they do care about what happens to each other, and Zapp is probably Leo's closest friend in Hellsalem's Lot. Though he'd still prefer Klaus to save him when things go pear shaped.

    Sonic 

Sonic

Voiced by: Yuuma Uchida (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)

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

A mach monkey that steals Leo's camera, but after Leo saves/spares him, he becomes Leo's pet. He's mainly loyal to Leo and accompanies on his Libra duties.


  • A Day in the Limelight: Gets to save the day in season 2 episode 9 with Leo's guidance.
  • Animal Eye Spy: Leo can navigate him through complex structures by linking each other's sight together with the All Seeing Eyes. Combine this with Sonic's super-speed and it makes him very good at reconaissance.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: It's implied that Leo earned Sonic's trust because he safely removed the bomb attached to the little monkey instead of killing him like Femt wanted.
  • Mischief-Making Monkey: He runs off with Leo's camera in the first episode, leading Leo on a merry chase across the city.
  • No Mouth: He has no mouth yet he can eat things like bananas with seemingly no issue.
  • Parrot Pet Position: Often perches on Leo's shoulder.
  • Super Speed: As suggested by his name, Sonic can move extremely quickly.
  • Team Pet: He's more or less this to Libra.

    Klaus 

Klaus Von Reinherz

Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama (Japanese), Phil Parsons (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/klaus_92.png

The Leader of Libra, a well-composed and gentlemanly man who is honest to a fault with an unshakable will. His terrifying visage is at odds with his gentle personality and nerdy habits (such as chess and trains). Combined with his awkward behavior, he has trouble with diplomatic missions, but when it comes to fighting evil, no one in Libra even comes close to his strength.


  • The Ace: Klaus is the strongest member of Libra, capable of eliminating enemies stronger than other members of the organization. Many characters also describe him at this.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Wears one, sans jacket, which often gets covered in blood as he fights, either his own or the enemy's.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: He demonstrates in episode 7 that even without his Blood Battle Style, he can easily defeat giant Otherworlders with his bare hands.
  • Berserk Button: Hurting innocent people in general tends to result in this, but this is especially true when the innocent person is a friend of his.
    • During episode 12, Leo manages to warn him that he's in danger. Klaus then literally radiates with so much red aura that it leaks out of the car and Steven presses himself up against the car door in fear. Once he arrives to find Leo near-death he punches the culprit so hard that there's nothing left of him besides his cloak.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite his fearsome looks, Klaus is as amicable and gentlemanly as can be - until you do something that is beyond outright evil, like kidnapping and torturing Leonardo, seriously harming his friends and colleagues, or threatening to either murder or rape a little girl. If you're not a Blood Breed, the results will be horrifying.
  • Bloody Murder: Brain Grid Blood Battle Style.
  • Calling Your Attacks: They're in German and he ALWAYS does this when using his Brain Grid Blood Battle Style.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Even without using his blood techniques, he is still capable of defeating opponents far far bigger than him.
  • Creepy Cool Crosses:
  • Cultured Badass: Klaus is a titan of a man with incredible strength, a face that can scare people badly enough to give them ulcers, and a great appreciation for chess, trains, and gardening.
  • Determinator: When he puts his mind to something, he simply will not stop out of principle. Deeds of his sheer single-mindedness and mental strength include lasting 99 hours in a game of Prosfair against an Otherworlder that has done nothing but play the game for the last 1200 years and defeating a powerful Blood Breed possessing a corpse in a fistfight without his Blood Blood Style.
  • Face of a Thug: Has what could be called an ogre's face, but is in fact an intellectual and a gentleman.
  • Fate Worse than Death: What he inflicts on Blood Breeds he seals. We never quite find out what it is like to be sealed inside those crosses, but Klaus apologizes every time he uses it, even when the target is Chaotic Evil.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's the strongest fighter in Libra, and is also one of the most intelligent and cool-headed members as well.
  • Gratuitous German: If his name is any indication, somewhat justified.
  • Hidden Depths: Enjoys tending to his potted plants and playing Prosfair (a game which is so complex it can physically injure players or kill them). He also enjoys trains, given how happy he looks to be on one when he gets out.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns
  • I Did What I Had to Do: When sealing vampires, he apologizes, saying he is inflicting such cruelty only in the name of protecting humanity.
  • Killing Intent: And it radiates red aura.
  • Nice Guy: Cares very much about his fellow Libra members. He was also willing to put his life on the line for a man who betrayed him.
    • His kindness may lead him into trouble, like in episode 3, when he plays 99 hours of Prosfair to save the life of a man who would have had him killed.
    • It also lets people (read:Zapp) to take advantage of him. Zapp pretended to be captured by goons to lure Klaus to a fighting ring to have him win a bunch of fights to make the manager let Zapp out of his gambling debt. Leo quickly realizes what Zapp has done, but Klaus buys Zapp's thank you's for "saving" him without question.
  • Papa Wolf: He's very protective of his fellow teammates, especially Leo. Gamimozu found out about this the hard way.
  • Rail Enthusiast: He rarely gets to ride the subway, but when he does, Zapp notices Klaus is fidgeting in his seat from excitement.
  • Retcon: In the original oneshot manga, he was a stage twelve vampire who was saved mere days before he would have turned into a full blown Blood Breed (stage 13), and by some unknown method was "locked" into stage 12 so he could keep the powers and his human conscience at the same time. This backstory was scrapped, but his character design was unchanged. This is why he has seemingly inexplicable fangs; they were originally vampire fangs.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Steven's blue. Nightow describes their relationship as "like yin and yang".
  • Smart People Play Chess: Likes to spend his free time playing Prosfair, a chess-like game.
    • Plays a match of normal chess against Steven in the first episode.
  • The Coats Are Off: When fighting in the E-den arena.
  • The Von Trope Family
  • Younger Than They Look: He's 28 years old.

    Zapp 

Zapp Renfro

Voiced by: Kazuya Nakai (Japanese), Ian Sinclair (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zapp_4.png

A hotheaded, womanizing member of Libra who often gets his teammates in trouble. He's assigned to act as Leo's bodyguard, but he treats his job as a chance to exploit him for free meals and fun.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Dark skinned, but it's impossible to glean any sort of specific ethnicity from him. About as archetypical as it gets.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Plantonically with Leo. He tends to bully him a lot, but in the Season 2 opener, he starts crying when he thinks that he got Leo killed.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Leo, even though he usually hides it under a thick veneer of Big Brother Bully.
  • Bloody Murder: Can turn his blood into bladed weapons with his Big Dipper style.
    • Stuff Blowing Up: His Big Dipper Style allows him to use his blood like explosives or a fuse.
  • Butt-Monkey: Not to the same extent as Leo, but he does suffer quite a bit of abuse, mostly from Chain.
    • In episode 2 the side text that describes Zapp calls him out as a 馬鹿 バ力 (Fool written in kanji and katakana) while the English text below reads "Dick Suck".
    • While unable to speak, Raju, his master, controls Zapp's body and forces him to translate the gratuitous tongue-lashing he gives him for the other Libra members. Even Leo feels sorry for him after that one.
    • Season 2 of the anime makes it a point to have Zapp gets abused, bloodied, or screwed over every episode.
  • The Casanova: At one point Leonardo gets dragged into his apartment while begging him to pay for a pizza Zap had ordered from his employer, only to turn red upon seeing the several scantily clad women he had with him.
    • Episode 8 features him having several one-night stands, one after the other.
  • Cigar Chomper: And he's not above smoking right outside hospitals either.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Zapp could be a huge dick and a clown, but when he is serious, he can kick ass like Klaus. For example, when he confronted the bottom half of a Blood Breed, he defeated the vampire with ease after Chain motivated him by lying, telling him that her friend Angelica was on the phone, saying that she wanted to sleep with him.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: He has very dark skin and white hair.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite Zapp's obnoxious behavior and lack of discipline, Raju admits Zapp may indeed be the greatest Big Dipper Style user he has ever trained.
    • He respects Leo more than one might imagine at first glance. When Zed gets angry at him for being so casual about finding a missing Leo, saying that Leo is just an ordinary kid, eyes aside, Zapp gets mad at Zed for underestimating Leo, saying he he's a capable member of Libra just like everyone else.
    • He's also expressed his disdain for how New York and its corporations treat otherworlders.
  • Hot-Blooded: He's bombastic and obnoxious.
  • I Call Him "Mr. Happy": Apparently named his wang "Lieutenant Freedom Magnum".
  • Jerkass: He chases Leonardo and steals the pizzas Leonardo was trying to deliver, sometimes physically assaulting him in the process. He also orders pizzas from him and doesn't pay for them.
    • In episode 3, he sits on Leo's face while the latter is resting on a couch, causing Leo to stop breathing. All Played for Laughs, of course.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: It should be noted that both times Leo was kidnapped, Zapp was the one closest to him. The one Leo prays to save him is Klaus, however. In the second episode, Zapp also makes a blood trail to indicate Libra in which place Leonardo is to help in his rescue.
  • Even Jerks Have Standards: When Leonardo was about to be kidnapped, he used a risky form of Blood Magic in order to make sure they'd be able to track him.
  • Loose Cannon: There's not much the other members of Libra can do to control him.
  • Man in White: He wears white pants and a white jacket.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: He squanders most of his Libra earnings on hookers and booze.
  • Overdrawn at the Blood Bank: Can drain blood bags dry in a matter of moments to fuel his abilities.
  • Raging Stiffie: In Z's Longest Day. Not only that, but it's used as a power-up.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Zed's blue.
  • Running Gag: He frequently attempts to catch Klaus unaware and attack him, only to be defeated soundly all the time.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: His relationship with Chain bears traits of both this trope and Sitcom Arch-Nemesis. They're on the same team but spend most of their interactions volleying insults at one another.
    • Also with Zed. There's more vitriol than camaraderie between them, sometimes shading into Comically Lopsided Rivalry with Zed ignoring Zapp's attempts to pick a fight or dumbfounding him by responding politely to his barbs.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: At Chain after the Riel incident (since her stealth specialty would've made stopping Riel much easier) given how she and her group were blacked-out drunk and thus they had to use Leo and Sonic. She's so embarassed she takes the verbal lashing for the most part. That is until Leo reveals that Zapp got put in the ICU (from when he was trying to get Leo's friend to pay for his meal after flattering him or legitimately noticing his minute changes and he smashing Zapp away)) thus missing the entire crisis, during which time he got multiple sexual harassment complaints from the nurses. Chain is very unimpressed.

    Chain 

Chain Sumeragi

Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi (Japanese), Trina Nishimura (English)

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

A reserved member of Libra with a cool, often flippant demeanor and superhuman senses and agility.


  • Action Girl: She uses agility more than anything, but she's still capable in combat.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Season 2 is this for her along with Steven and Zed, all three of whom had minimal screentime in the first season.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Always seen in a business suit and always kicking ass.
  • Call-Back: After easily beating an out-of-towner in a drinking contest in s2e3, he mutters that she must be some kind of monster. Six episodes later, when Zapp learns that she didn't show up to help during the latest crisis because she was out with four friends on ladies night (drinking an ENTIRE RESTAURANT dry in the process) Zapp asks if she's some kind of monster or something.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Has a massive crush on Steven Starphase to the point he's her link to existence. She's also hideously embarrassed about it. This becomes a Chekhov's Gun of episode 4, season 2
  • Cessation of Existence: If she uses her ability too much, she will literally erase herself from existence and retroactively cease to have ever been.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Several of her lines are this. Particularly in the dub, and usually at Zapp's expense.
  • Expy: Bears a resemblance to Wolfwood.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: A mild, comic example. She may be firmly on the side of the good guys, but there’s a deep well of sadism behind that innocent, pretty face. One of the series’s most frequent running gags involves her doing something horrible to someone (mostly Zapp) while looking like she wouldn’t harm a fly.
  • Guns Akimbo: Typically dual-wields guns in battle, but being part of the Bureau it's implied she's a bad shot because they somehow managed to miss an assassination target at point blank range. It’s quickly revealed they intentionally miss; they want to send messages, not create bodies. At least this is what one of them claims as it is then very quickly implied they are indeed really awful shots and made up that excuse for their incompetence..
  • In-Series Nickname: Zapp is always calling her Dog Lady, Pooch or some other dog-related nickname.
  • Invisibility: Her main ability, though it's not so much "turning invisible" as it is "erasing her presence".
  • Jerkass with a Heart of Gold: While she is mostly apathetic towards other people, sometimes abandoning those in danger without showing any concern, she has been shown to be kind at times too, such as winning back Leo's wallet from tourists in a drinking contest, or giving Nej a notepad to make remembering things easier for him
  • Meaningful Name: She needs a link (a chain) to connect her to the world to counter the effect of her ability.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Feels horribly guilty that the Riel crisis happened while she was out on Ladies Night completely plastered, forcing Sonic to save the day instead.
  • Not So Stoic: To get back at a guy who beat Leo up and stole his wallet (a fate she left him to), she makes a bet that she can drink him under the table. Drinking Beyondian liquor, she is able to down an insane amount of shots seemingly without even getting tipsy. She still ends up puking her guts up the next morning as the episode's post credits stinger shows.
    • In episode 4 of season 2, she rather calmly accepts her fate to phase out of existence after pushing her powers too far. But then, after reality had already started to rearrange itself around her non-existence, the thought of Steven seeing her hoarding problem at her apartment willed her back into existence in a flurry of horrified embarrassment.
    • She's laughing her guts out alongside Leo and Zapp at seeing Zed's usage of his Blood Battle technique to make a bubble of water on his head to breathe, finding it ridiculous as the others. Heck, she's the first one to crack up.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Is described as one, but doesn't display any physical transformation abilities. In the world of Blood Blockade it seems werewolf abilities are to erase one's own causality and exist 'everywhere and nowhere' as stated by a turncoat werewolf in Season 2.
  • Pun: Possibly; due to her ability to exist everywhere and nowhere, she's a wherewolf.
  • The Lad-ette: While seemingly cooly ruthless and sharp dressed, Chain's apartment is a mess due to her hoarding and she frequently goes out on heavy drinking benders, such as the time she and her fellows at the Werewolf Agency drank a restaurant's entire stock of wine in a single night. She can probably hold her alcohol the best of any character in the story as far as we've seen, though there are often bad side effects such as her being too drunk to respond to a potential world ending crisis, or simply being hung over and throwing her guts up the following morning. It's all Played for Laughs.
  • The Stoic: Has a cool and flippant way about her that's never ruffled. Though as seen above, she does have her moments where she ends up in her own silly situations and cracks.
  • Super Speed: Since her ability is to "dilute her presence", she can negate her existence to an extent that allows her to defy gravity a bit, giving her this ability.
  • Trash of the Titans: Likely due to her fear of losing all connection to the world and ceasing to be, she is scared of getting rid of any belongings (even garbage) and thus has a serious hoarding problem. One of the reasons she keeps people at arms length is to prevent them from finding out.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Zapp. It doesn't matter if they're teammates. She's either insulting him or injuring him in whatever scene they share.
  • Waif-Fu: Small, slight, and a physical powerhouse who can kick a ton of ass.

    Steven 

Steven A. Starphase

Voiced by: Mitsuru Miyamoto (Japanese), J. Michael Tatum (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/steven_7.png

Libra's second-in-command, a debonair but mysterious man with many connections. Works in secret with his own private forces to eliminate the villains who he feels are undeserving of his leader's mercy.


  • Adaptation Decay: Suffered this heavily in the first season of the anime due to the fact that the majority of his defining scenes from the manga were absent. Season 2 finally gives him A Day in the Limelight though.
  • An Ice Person: Manipulates ice using the soles of his feet. According to Nightow, the crosses on the bottoms of his shoes facilitate ease of use.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He always looks like he's ready for business.
  • Beneath the Mask: Hides his darker thoughts and feelings when in front of Libra, only revealing them in private or when around his forces. Due to guilt, he seems to believe that his darker side is his unforgivable true self.
  • Bloody Murder: His ability, Esmerelda Blood Freeze.
  • Break the Cutie: After the Great Collapse turned New York into Hellsalem's Lot and invited all manner of evil into the city, Steven became paranoid of everyone around him and consequently lost the ability to have faith in human decency. Klaus is the last person he trusts completely. Shows the potential to become a Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds if anything were to ever happen to him.
  • Cat Smile: Has a bit of this when he's in a rare good mood. But as Zapp said, Starphase's smile is a sign that he's about to berserk.
  • Creepy Cool Crosses: Has multiple crosses on the soles of his shoes similar to the cross on Klaus's brass knuckles.
  • Extremity Extremist: Primarily uses kicks. He even has custom shoes so that he can use his abilities more easily.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: One 'good' scar on his left cheek. May also be a subtle version of a Two-Faced scar. It's currently unknown when or how he received it.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: All of his attack names are yelled in Spanish such as Espada del Cero Absoluto (Sword of Absolute Zero).
  • An Ice Person: Foremost among the reasons he's so cool.
  • In-Series Nickname: K.K. calls him Scarface.
    • His name also happens to be an intentional Stealth Pun. "Starphase" sounds like "Scarface".
  • The Lancer: To Klaus.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Sometimes goes so far that he doesn't look very different from the villains he's taking care of.
  • Poisonous Friend: He is not above doing morally grey (or worse) things to his enemies. After capturing a bunch of assassins, he hands them off to a group of private goons for a Fate Worse than Death. When one of them asks if they are being handed off to Libra, he says no since the things he plans to do to them are things that someone as pure hearted as Klaus would never consider doing.
  • Precision F-Strike: Says that the group of assassins he thought were friends invited over for dinner are "fucking rude" for their deception, the only f-bomb of the series (in the dubbed version, at least).
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He seems unassuming until he's got his enemies cornered. If he's glaring at you, it's probably already too late to run.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Klaus's red.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Goes behind Libra's backs to ensure that Klaus won't regret offering kindness to irredeemable villains by taking them out on his own.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality
  • Smart People Play Chess: Plays a match with Klaus in the first episode.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Steven or Stephen? The anime uses the former, the English translation of the manga the latter.
  • Tattoo as Character Type: Its exact design and purpose (if it has one) are currently unknown. Like his scar, the tattoo that's just barely visible above the collar of his shirt adds to his "mobster image". Nightow has confirmed that it's extensive and goes all the way down his side to his feet.

    K.K. 

K.K.

Voiced by: Ai Orikasa (Japanese), Stephanie Young (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kk_4.png

A lively and confident Libra member. She's an old friend of Klaus's and treats him with great fondness. While she can't participate in Libra activities quite as much due to having to raise kids, her combat ability hasn't been dulled in the slightest.


  • Action Girl: She's one of their strongest fighters, being either second or third most powerful.
  • Action Mom: Having kids hasn't slowed her down at all. Though the time needed to properly raise said kids means she can't accompany Libra on as many missions as she used to.
  • Badass Biker: KK is a motorcyclist and in the opening episode of Season 2, utilizes a tricked out sports bike equipped with cannons that fire electric bolts to save Leo as he makes his run across the city to Federal Hall.
  • Badass Longcoat: It's long enough to drag along the floor. The only reason it doesn't is because it curls up at the end.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her coat is open just enough to show a bit of stomach.
  • Bloody Murder
  • Cool Guns: KK's sniper rifle is a customized Walther WA 2000 that's been fitted with an engraved ornamental silver skull at the muzzle.
  • Doting Parent: Very devoted to her sons, who she treasures above all else, to the point where she fought in a shoot out at a convenience store to find a special birthday card for one of them. She also wanted to skip an important mission to stop a gang war because it coincided with Parents' Day, as in "Parents spend time with their kids at school" day until Steven guilt tripped her into joining by asking what her kids would think of her if she let her comrades die.
  • Eyepatch of Power: We have yet to see an explanation for it.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Oddly enough, her gloves are only fingerless as the thumb, index finger and pinkie.
  • Friendly Sniper: Moves effortlessly from bantering with her Libra colleagues and assigning them cute nicknames to mowing down enemy mooks by the hundreds while whistling a jaunty tune.
  • The Gunslinger: Wields high-powered guns that can electrocute enemies.
  • Happily Married: She and her husband love each other very much.
  • Lightning Gun: Her guns fires bullets with such a high charge that it has a similar effect.
  • Parents as People: She loves her kids more than anything, but she can't keep all of her promises to them due to having to go on missions to stop chaos throughout the city. Because of this, her children resent her even though she tries her best to give them as much attention as she can.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Klaus. They have a bond so close many viewers initially believed they were romantically involved. In reality K.K. is devoted to her husband, and her bond with Klaus is not romantic but instead the strongest friendship imaginable.
  • Smoking Is Cool

Two men in one body. Dog Hummer had his blood replaced with the liquefied body of Deldro Brody. Deldro, a former serial killer, can materialize as gigantic living armour that surrounds Dog. The two are often kept sealed away in the deepest part of Hellsalem's Lot's largest asylum, but are sometimes called up to aid Libra in dire situations.


    Zed 

Zed O'Brien

Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese), Alex Organ (season 1), Christopher Wehkamp (season 2) (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zed_3.png

A stern fishman with who joined Libra after being abandoned in Hellsalem's Lot.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the anime adaptation, he's generally pretty stoic about everything to the point of being Comically Serious and tends to blow Zapp off when the latter is trying to annoy him. In the manga, he has a lot less patience for Zapp and is shown getting visibly (comically) angry with him more than once throughout the manga.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Has pointy fins on his wrists.
  • Bloody Murder: Uses the same style as Zapp as they both studied under the same master. He uses the Shinatobe branch of the Big Dipper Blood Battle Style.
  • Carnivore Confusion: To haze Zed, Zapp takes him and Leo to a sushi restaurant when Leo says they should all go out for lunch. To Zapp's annoyance, Zed has no issue eating fish, noting that in the sea, bigger fish eat smaller fish all the time. Though averted at the end of the episode when he says he doesn't eat sea creatures. He presumably just wasn't backing down from Zapp's obvious hazing.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Zed doesn't appear in the show (or even arrive in Hellsalem's Lot) until the latter half of season 1, but you can see glimpses of him in the OP from the beginning.
  • Expy: Of Abe Sapien. His backstory in s2e7 confirms it.
  • Fish People: Described as half-man, half-fish.
  • Fishbowl Helmet: As long as there is water available beside him, he can use his Big Dipper Style Blood Technique to encase his head with a water bubble to help him breathe without his breathing apparatus. The water bubbles he makes can be weaponized by throwing it on an enemy's head and drowning them. However, he gets laughed by Leo, Zapp, and Chain, because of how ridiculous it looks.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: To a lesser extent, but it turns out Zed was pretty lonely before joining Libra. Initially he only had his creator to talk with, and after that only Raju who was just interested in teaching Zed the Big Dipper Style. Though he doesn't outwardly show it, he is very excited to go to a New Years party with the rest of Libra to the point that he taped the flyer Leo gave him to his water tank he spends a lot of time in.
  • Logical Weakness: He's half-fish. Without his neck apparatus, he can't breathe in air.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Zapp's red. Bonus points for actually having blue skin.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Wears a very tight sleeveless shirt that shows off his well-toned arms nicely.
  • Taking the Bullet: Not a bullet, but a giant piece of falling rubble to the back, which he heroically endures when saving Vivian from the mobile tank that just crashed through the roof of the diner in Run Lunch Run.

    Gilbert 

Gilbert F. Altstein

Voiced by: Banjo Ginga (Japanese), Francis Henry (English)

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

Klaus' butler and a member of Libra who handles most of Libra's intelligence work.


  • Badass Baritone: If his voice suddenly gets deeper, your ass is grass.
  • Badass Driver: AND HOW! During the 5th episode of Season 2, he gets to take his car out for a spin, and leaves a trail of destruction in his wake as he pursues the criminals that stole the brain of his fellow butler.
  • Bandaged Face: He's covered almost entirely in bandages.
  • Battle Butler: He's Klaus's butler, so he couldn't be anything but this.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: As placid as he normally is, hurt one of his coworkers and he will rain fire upon you.
  • Crouching Moron Hidden Bad Ass: A seemingly decrepit butler with several health problems and age, Altstein demonstrates in Season 2 Episode 5, why underestimating him is the last mistake anyone would make. When a gang of criminals steal the brain of his assistant butler, Alstein takes his tricked out roadster for a spin, and proceeds to use the built in weapons to carve a swathe of destruction through Hellsalem Lot waterfront, massacre the criminals to a man, recover the brain and shrug off his head getting bisected with a Katana.
  • Determinator: Altstein won't stop even his head getting bisected with a Katana.
  • Healing Factor: His regenerative powers only activates when he receives fatal wounds.
  • Hidden Depths: Is briefly shown playing video games with Leo and Zapp in his focus episode.
  • Meaningful Name: The F in his name is for Franke (+ Altstein), nearly similar to Franken (+ Stein), as in Frankenstein's monster, which kinda explains his Bandaged Face & his regenerative ability.
  • Nice Guy: Leo mentions that Gilbert gets along with pretty much everyone.
  • Weaponized Car: Drives a custom vehicle that's packed with weapons.

    Blitz 

Blitz T. Abrams

Voiced by: Akio Ohtsuka (Japanese), Mark Stoddard (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blitz_8.png

Klaus' former mentor and a world-famous vampire hunter. He's also known as Lucky Abrams due to his disastrously BAD luck and tendency to bring disasters and accidents in his wake wherever he goes.


  • The Ditz: Comes across as one due to his nonchalance about the curse on him. He is completely unaffected by it, but everything and everyone around him is, causing mayhem wherever he goes. He generally seems unaware that anything is unusual about it, such as not seeing why its unusual that a giant monster about to eat the train they were on got randomly struck and killed by a random meteor. He also has a somewhat goofy personality. That said, he is very competent at his job.
  • Doom Magnet: He's been cursed so many times that misfortune follows him around, though he never seems to get affected by it himself.
  • Establishing Character Moment: During his introduction in the anime, he's seen walking on the tarmac at an airport and sneezes. A plane behind him that was taking off suddenly explodes. When he first sees Zapp and Leo, a car accident occurs right in front of him. A shard of glass from a crashed vehicle flies into Zapp's forehead, while some metal debris falls on Leo's head, knocking him out in the process. Later a giant flying monster is about to attack the subway train he's on with other Libra members, only to be immediately killed by a meteorite that also happened to slam into it before the train could be attacked. Zapp lampshades this, screaming about such an unlikely scenario happening.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Seems entirely unaware of the disasters he causes and why people go out of their way to avoid him. Also chastises Leo when he injures his eye, telling him to sacrifice an arm next time.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Lucky Abrams"
  • The Mentor: To Klaus.
  • The Jinx: Due to being cursed so many times that the curses cancel each other out, he's personally immune to them, but they can still affect the people around him.
  • Vampire Hunter

    Femt, The King of Depravity 

Femt

Voiced by: Akira Ishida (Japanese), Josh Grelle (English)

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

The self-proclaimed King of Depravity and one of the Thirteen Kings of the Beyond's criminal underground. He's an aristocratic superhuman entity with a lot of free time who views the city and its human inhabitants as playthings. Despite this, he is looking for drama and exciting conflicts above else, and intentionally handicaps his own schemes so that mankind will have a chance.


  • Ax-Crazy: Mild Example. Femt is far from sane, and his idea of fun is very twisted, but even he has his moments of calm.
  • Big Bad: Subverted in the anime at least. At the beginning of the series, things indicate that he will be the one that will cause problems to Libra. However, with the appearance of the King of Despair, Femt become a mere spectator in his schemes and leave the work to him.
    • In the manga, he is still the closest thing to a Big Bad, the only recurring villain at least, but he doesn't seem to have any actual plans beyond just causing mayhem in the city for his enjoyment.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In his very first appearance, the first thing he do is to challenge Libra to stop one of his monsters via TV in a very... energetic way.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In the OVA he defends the restaurant when it is attacked, and states that he wouldn't do anything to damage it despite his typical AxCrazy nature. Although this is probably simply because he enjoys eating there, rather than any moral standard.
  • Evil is Hammy: His mannerism and way to speak make him do the largest ham of the series.
  • Evil Wears Black: When he meets the King of Despair in episode 9 he wears his black clothes without his lab coat.
  • Expy: Femt is basically Blood Battle Blockade's version of the Joker.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Has a very prominent fangs to accentuate his evil aspect.
  • For the Evulz: The reason why he challenges Libra and sets up the game is because he's bored and wants excitement.
  • Laughably Evil: Admit it, his over-the-top actuations and his behavior in general are pretty funny.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: After spending some time getting to know Leo while trying to escape the bathroom hallway, he decides he's pretty OK for a human and invites the latter out for dinner. The OVA ends with Leo debating whether to go or not, for obvious reasons
  • Mad Scientist: Created a a batch of monsters that grow huge from eating anything organic and have a lifespan of six hours, six minutes, and six seconds while also cooking eggs for breakfast.
  • Man in White: A very mild example. Usually he wears a lab coat with white gloves, but wears blacks shirt and trousers inside. Played straight in episode 5 when he meets the King of Despair with white clothes sans trousers.
  • One-Way Visor: Though it looks more like a steel plate.
  • Red Baron: "The King of Depravity".
  • Spanner in the Works: Frees Leo who was tied up in a crypt unlikely to ever be found because he found the King of Despair's apocalypse to be too boring.
  • Villainous Friendship: Is friends with the King of Despair and Aligura.
  • Villains Out Shopping: When the fancy restaurants' dimensional security system in the OVA goes haywire, guess who Leo runs into while looking for the bathroom. They end up forming a temporarily alliance to get back to their respective dining rooms, and both agree to never speak of the incident again... until Femt invites Leo out for dinner.

    Aligura 

Aligura, The Queen of Monomania

Voiced by: Satomi Koorogi (Japanese), Tia Ballard (English)

The Queen of Monomania. She's another one of the Thirteen leaders of the underground in Hellsalem's Lot who likes to stir up chaos in the same way Femt does, but not without reason.


    Zeodora 

Zeodora The Heretic

King of Hypersensitivity, and one of the Thirteen Kings of Hellsalem's Lot, considered the most difficult to handle by Klaus. He has incredibly powerful senses, that allow him to detect all things in Hellsalem's Lot.

    The King of Despair 

Blank/King of Despair

Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (Japanese), Micah Solusod (English)

Another one of the Thirteen Kings of Hellsalem's Lot's criminal underground introduced in the anime adaptation, who is currently inhabiting Black's body. He's taken a personal interest in Leo.


  • Arc Villain: For the first season of the anime. Blank aims to dismantle the barrier that keeps Hellsalem's Lot from being torn apart by the beyond, hoping to destroy the world.
  • Bullying a Dragon: As Black, he often gets picked on in a similar way as Leo does. Of course once that happens the bullies are in for a bloody surprise.
  • Clark Kenting: As mentioned below, he changes his look when he takes over Black. The change in appearance is so profound that even though they appear one after the other in the opening it's entirely possible not to realize they're the same character until after The Reveal.
  • Deal with the Devil: Black made a deal to let him use his body as long as he left White alone. The King himself makes a deal with White to free Black if she steals Leo's eyes from him.
  • Death Seeker: He wants to die. To cause the Great Collapse again is his attempt at ensuring this happens.
    • At the end of season 1 anime, it is heavily implied that Blank didn't die & simply possessed a new host body.
  • Enemy Within: To Black.
  • Evil Costume Switch: When manifesting himself in Black's body he removes the glasses, messes up his hair, and wears a bright blue coat.
  • Faux Affably Evil: On one hand, he saved a random woman who was abused by Beyondians when he had no reason to. On the other hand, he tortured and killed said Beyondians in a sadistic way. On one hand, he made a deal with Black to possess his body in return for keeping White safe and promised White that if she helped him with his plot, he'd release Black. On the other hand, he lied about both promises. On one hand, he has plenty of light goofy conversations with Femt. On the other hand, he wants to destory the world, killing everyone on both sides.
  • I Lied: Does this twice in the same episode. First he breaks his promise of returning Black's body and the second he breaks his promise to not harm White by shooting her.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Compared with the antics of Femt and Aligura, the King of Despair is shown as a very much serious threat. Also, while Femt only wants fun and Aligura's havoc in episode 5 is only to obtain her boyfriend (and despite that she kills many people in the process, is more or less Played for Laughs), the actions of Blank are totally not for comedy purposes.
  • Red Baron: "The King of Despair"·
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are red, unlike Black's blue.
  • Technicolor Fire: Associated with blue flames.
  • Villainous Friendship: He is friends with Femt, and the two even go out to eat while Aligura rampages through the city in episode five. He is also friend of Aligura herself.
  • Victory Is Boring: When his plan is on the verge of success Femt comments how bored he is despite his wish for death about to be realized. So they decide to “spice” up the apocalypse by adding in zombies and Femt releasing Leonardo.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: He's interested in Leo, because he wants to take the Eyes of God from him. Thankfully, rather than literally take them out of Leo's head, he outfits Leo with a device that will allow him to use the Eyes' power and then kidnaps him. He then uses the Eyes to figure out how to break the seal that stopped the Great Collapse.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Reveals that this is his motivation, and is hoping the destruction of the barrier and the second great collapse might be able to kill him.

A Beyondian using a Ghost Wagon to perform human abductions. He uses his illusion-making powers to disguise the Wagon to look like a normal vehicle when in Hellsalem's Lot. Works with Yahabio and Udeshiubo.


  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Is taken out with one hit courtesy of Klaus.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: His job is to kidnap humans as food for the Alterworld.
  • Master of Illusion: His illusion magic is so cutting edge, the only people in existence who can see past it are either in league with him or have the Eyes Of God. This is how he identifies that Leo has said eyes.
  • They Would Cut You Up: The "they" in this case is him. When one of his coworkers snatches Leo, he becomes delighted at the thought of dissecting someone who holds the All Seeing Eyes of the Gods.

    Don Arlelelle 

Don Arlelelle Eruca Fulgrouche

Voice by: Shozo Iizuka (Japanese), Kenny Green (English)

A Beyondian and a leading boss of the Alterworld. Really loves Prosfair. While he's not an out-and-out villain — he and Klaus seem to be on relatively good terms — he is an Eldritch Abomination who challenges those who seek power and information from him to a game that they cannot win. To keep things fair, in order for someone to "win" and get what they want from him, they need only last long enough against him in a game of Prosfair.


  • Absurdly High-Stakes Game: If you can't hold your own against him for a designated amount of time, he's going to kill you and steal your brain. Coupled with the fact that Prosfair is known to be so complicated that people die from playing it and that you have to play against him for hours spanning several days.
  • Body Horror: How about being made mostly of human brains for starters?
  • Deal with the Devil: He is the devil offering deals in this case. People come to him and entertain him with a game of Prosfair. If they can hold out long enough then they get their request granted. If they can't, then he kills them and assimilates their brain.
  • Noble Demon: He truly is friends with Klaus. When Klaus acts disrespectful to save the life of a previous player, Arlelelle says that he should kill Klaus for interfering... except that as his friend he deserves a chance to explain himself.
  • Overly Long Name
  • Physical God: Perhaps the strongest entity encountered in the series, and his influence is practically infinite. Whenever Libra simply cannot get info any other way, Klaus comes back for another game of Prosfair, and it has yet to fail them. It's implied not even Klaus, perhaps humanities greatest fighter, would even stand a chance against him.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Just to emphasize how big his mind capacity is, he can play over 99 hours of Prosfair and not break a sweat.
  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: Plays his game in another dimension so that his absurd time requests can be met with only a few minutes passing in the real world.

    Dr. Gamimozou 

Dr. Gamimozou

Voiced by: Toshihiko Seki (Japanese), Barry Yandell (English)

A powerful Beyondian with an interest in the various divine "parts of the Gods".


  • Ambiguously Human: Played with. He is certainly entirely Beyondian now, but whether he was always one is a question that will never be answered.
  • Body Horror: Looks like a floating, withered corpse with tubes and pipes running through it.
  • The Chosen Many: Averted. While he has possession of the All Seeing Eyes of the Gods, its only a single eye, and one he surgically implanted into himself after stealing it from a corpse, rather than ones given to him naturally.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: His obsession with modifying himself with divine cybernetics has driven him to do some unspeakable things, and he appears to be addicted to it.
  • Grand Theft Me: His motus operandi. He himself is more like a mass of surgery and life support equipment, and in order to actually act he must attach himself to victims.
  • Kick the Dog: Randomly kills a Beyondian to make a point to Leo.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Anyone he possesses is put into one, only half in control of their actions. It's apparently painless, but we only have his word for it.
  • Mood-Swinger: Jumps between Pet the Dog moments and Kick the Dog moments at the drop of a hat.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Easily the most fragile Beyondian ever faced in the series, but between his cunning and his mastery of illusion magic he is also one of the most frighteningly effective outside the 13 Kings.

Although their parents brought them to Hellsalem's Lot in hopes of finding a miracle, she ended up losing her eyes to protect her brother. Leo writes her letters to let her know what he's up to - or at least, he intends to.


  • Handicapped Badass: She might be blind and in a wheelchair, but she shouldn't be underestimated since she'll do what she can to help Leo. Including beating up her fiancee when his body gets hijacked.

  • Fate Worse than Death: Nearly avoided this, after losing a match of Prosfair to Don Arlelelle, he would have had his brain incorporated into the Don's, and been forced to play pros fair with him until he died, had Klaus not intervened.
  • I Love Nuclear Power: The reason he went to the Don is because he wanted to acquire nuclear weapons for his country.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He was one minute away from meeting the Don's quota. He would have soundly gotten what he'd wanted had he not insisted that Don add killing Klaus and K.K. to his requests, even after the Don explained that Klaus wouldn't tell anyone about their encounter. Since he still wanted them silenced, another hour gets added to his fee.
  • You Know Too Much: Asks Don Arlelelle to kill Klaus and K.K. if he wins the game, because he doesn't want to risk the knowledge of his meeting with Don Arlelelle becoming public.

  • Idiot Hair: Her copies have one. And it even moves.

    White 

White/Mary Macbeth

Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (Japanese), Megan Emerick (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/white_8.png

A mysterious girl Leonardo meets in a graveyard by a hospital. Introduced in the anime adaptation.


  • Barrier Maiden: The barrier that acts as her heart is also tied to the barrier that stops the Great Collapse. The King of Despair shoots her in the end in order to break it.
  • Canon Foreigner: An original anime character who has no manga equivalent.
  • Color-Coded Characters: She goes by the name of White and her outfit is mostly white, with a bit of black.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Black and White's parents are implied to have been one of the Casters who gave up their lives to create the barrier that stopped the Great Collapse from growing.
  • Deal with the Devil: She made a deal with the King of Despair that he would leave Black's body if she retrieved Leo's eye abilities, but since she legitimately wants to be friends with Leo, she's not completely willing to do this.
  • Disappears into Light: Her final fate in the finale, as she willingly gives William the remaining energy in her body to repair the shattered barrier around New York.
  • Enemy Mine: Dislikes the King of Despair, but is helping him in his schemes and is keeping Black in the dark.
  • Genki Girl: Maintains a remarkably upbeat and cheerful personality in her interactions with Leo. Later episodes imply that there's a sadder girl beneath the surface.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Wears her long blonde hair in this style.
  • Ill Girl: Played with. As a conversation with her brother reveals to Leo, White apparently has a heart problem. This doesn't seem to hinder her in the least. As it turns out, something happened to her heart that either severely weakened it or destroyed it all together, so her family used a magical seal to act as a replacement, but the seal that stopped the Great Collapse is linked to the one in her. If something happens to the seal beneath the city, she gets hit with crippling angina.
  • Meaningful Name: William and Mary, as in William and Mary; her brother is housing the King of Despair, while she's working with him.
  • Muggle Born of Mages: Her parents were both psychics from a long line of psychics, and her twin brother is a very powerful psychic. She however is completely powerless. This left her with some resentment towards Black, who as she puts it has enough psychic power for the both of them yet refuses to use his powers, even while getting beaten up by bullies.
  • Not So Different: White comes from a similar place as Leo. Both feel extreme guilt over letting their siblings sacrifice themselves when presented with a Sadistic Choice, and both White and Leo both decide to follow along with the sadistic choice presenter's directions. Leo chooses to watch the events unfolding in Hellsalem's Lot (while helping Libra keep the peace) and White helps the King of Despair carry out his plans to remove the barrier surrounding Hell Salem's lot, even though that would cause the world to plunge into chaos. And both do this for their siblings' sakes.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her parents were among the casters that sacrificed themselves to prevent the Great Collapse, leaving her an orphan and living in a hospital.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes all the way down her back.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: A subtle variation with Black that stretched back to when they were kids. As children, he was softhearted and easy to mess with while she was blunt and more intolerant of bullies.
  • Woman in White: The most non-white she's worn is black accents on a white coat.

  • Canon Foreigner: An original anime character who has no manga equivalent.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Black and White's parents are implied to have been one of the Casters who gave up their lives to create the barrier that stopped the Great Collapse from growing.

  • Enemy Within: Currently housing the King of Despair in his body.

  • Meaningful Name: He and his sister's real names are William and Mary; he's housing the King of Despair, while she's working with him.
  • Megane: Always wears glasses. It's a sign he's acting as himself and not as the King of Despair.
  • Nice Guy: Appears to be a friendly, and overall relatable young guy.
  • Psychic Powers: Black attempted to freeze hot coffee from spilling onto Leo, but he didn't hold it long enough for Leo to dodge. Black confesses the ability runs in his family but he's not good at it.
  • Put on a Bus: He leaves Hellsalem's Lot after the events of S1 as the city reminds him of White too much to stay. Leo is seen video calling him near the end of season 2 where he states the above as why he isn't ready to come back yet.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: He's the calmer, responsible brother to the more hyper White.

A Beyondian living in Hellsalem's Lot, he's obsessed with burgers. He's more special than he looks however.


  • Break the Cutie: Life hasn't been particularly kind to Nej. Poor guy can't even remember his mother, and that's without getting into what happens in his episode.
    • You know the creators were going for sympathy when they gave this role to Pikachu's voice actor.
  • Forgetful Jones: He is extremely scatterbrained, possibly due to the below trope, but he's so forgetful that he needs a mnemonic device just to remember Leo's name. And he considers Leo his best friend.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: He can do this, apparently he releases spores when stressed that trigger amnesia.
  • Nice Guy: As nice as Leo, nicer even.
  • Overly Long Name
  • Unstoppable Rage: He is already calming down when Leo distracts the couriers, but when the couriers beat Leo, he loses his cool and causes a massive explosion of spore.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Loves burgers.

    Raju 

Raju Jugei Shizuyoshi

Voiced by: Hidekatsu Shibata (Japanese), R. Bruce Elliott (English)

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

A legendary fighter and master of the Big Dipper Blood Battle Style. Raju is the master to both Zed and Zapp.


  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Most of his lines are either condescending or passive aggressive. The only two people who even vaguely impress him with their skill are Zapp (for somehow being good at the Big Dipper style without having any self discipline) and Klaus (for being able to seal vampires who aren't even weakened yet, though Raju says he does a sloppy job of it)
  • Ambiguously Human: The show intentionally leaves it ambiguous whether he is Beyondian or a just horribly maimed but extremely powerful human hiding under a cloak.
  • Bloody Murder: As the master of the Big Dipper Blood Battle Style he can do all sorts of impressive skills with it. Turning his blood on fire, using it as hands, translating his words through someone else via their head, creating barriers, etc.
  • Blow You Away: He can combine wind and fire based techniques together to yield more devastating results.
  • Handicapped Badass: Has lost several of his limbs in the pursuit of mastering his Blood Battle Style, but thanks to his powers can fight easily without them. Only his arm seems to be left.
  • Jerkass: Speaks in a condescending manner towards the members of Libra through Zapp.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Every belittling word he says about Zapp is never refuted by the other members of Libra since they know how Zapp usually acts.
  • Old Master: The oldest vampire hunter seen so far.
  • Playing with Fire: Can set his own blood on fire.
  • Power Floats: Is never seen directly touching the ground.
  • Red Baron: Known as the "Blood Battle God".
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Wears a skull over his head that hides his face.
  • Training from Hell: Put Zapp through these over the years to let Zapp learn his battle style. According to Zapp, Raju subjects himself to training like this constantly.
  • The Faceless: His hood and the skull mask underneath it obscure his face in shadows. Only his eyes and mouth are shown.
  • The Unintelligible: No one but Zapp can understand him, so Zapp is forced to translate. Strangely enough, he speaks normally in the very next episode.
