These are the characters of Bloody Cutlass. These characters apply to the brand across multiple media. There are also certain characters (namely, Grosvenor, Artie Madryn, and the Scrap Rats) who also appeared in Space Pirate Captain MacTaggart.

Darkblade (née Melvyn Leigh Shepherd)
Darkblade is the captain on board the Bloody Cutlass. He is a German Shepherd who was originally introduced in parent series Space Pirate Captain MacTaggart. At the start of this series, he was put in prison by Jaws MacTaggart, only to break out and start anew, with a new crew and new adventures.


Natalie Corrine Simmons (aka Natalie Coal)
Natalie Coal is another space pirate, and the love interest of Darkblade. She was formerly the captain of the Flare of the Phoenix, before joining the Cutlass crew. She crashes into Darkblade's life after so long.

Clyde O'Shaughnessy is the First Mate on the Cutlass. He is a sheep from Kilkenny V in the Mogan Cluster.
  • By-the-Book Cop: More like "By-the-Book Crewmate". He follows the rules to space travel, and questions whether what the others are doing is acceptable.
  • Fighting Irish: Played with. He does generally have a calm demeanour, but if you piss him off...
  • Sheep in Wolf's Clothing: Literally. When he was bitten by a transformed Rhiannon, it didn't really show until part 2 of Who is Darkblade? - Primadonna, who seemingly sensed that he was infected, forcefully transformed him.
    • From there, it was lampshaded word-for-word.

Rhiannon le Rouge
Rhiannon is the Second Mate. She's a mysterious hybrid who tends to mostly stay out of things. As the Cutlass' paranormal expert, she keeps some references handy. She is the only Half-Human Hybrid in the Cutlass crew.
  • Heroic Bastard: The offspring of a werewolf father and a witch mother. She was bound to be abandoned.
  • Human Mom Nonhuman Dad: This combination was frowned upon by both sides of the equation.
  • Little Red Fighting Hood: Word of God reveals that she's inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. An adult version at that.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's born in the Late Medieval Period in Europe.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Both of her parents were this. Of course, they didn't know that they'd have an immortal child. As well, both families were at war, which caught the attention of priests, kicking off the werewolf-witch trials.
  • Witch Species: Her mother is a witch; thus, she displays magical powers, cast spells, and meditate.

Grosvenor is a space pirate. A black fox who's the captain of the Moonlight Raven, and an arch-rival to Darkblade.
Tropes associated with this character:
  • Blessed with Suck / Cursed with Awesome: Let's look at it both ways: It's awesome because he's got this great power; It sucks, however, because he's outlived many people, and his curse largely made people turn away.
  • Celibate Hero: Despite many girls flocking to him, he refuses. He was married before, so, nice try.
  • Daywalking Vampire: Never mind the vampire part, but still. Although he's more active at night, he has no problem walking in the daylight, no problem at all.
  • Nice Hat: He's got a really nice hat. Nuff said.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He doesn't speak about his past often, but he was a young village kid who was cursed with incredible speed and endurance, as well as immortality.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Once he was cursed, he was struck with this.

Jason is a lion-leopard hybrid who is the navigator on the ship. He also calls himself "the Qwikster", because...well, you know.
