Byron Oakington III
The... hero of the story. He wants to be a bodybuilder and battle homunculi for amusement.
- Disappeared Dad: Byron's father is nowhere to be seen. Since his mother claims the man was 72 and in ailing health when she married him, it's a safe bet he's dead by now.
- Heroic Lineage: In the comments of the first episode, Dorkly implies that Byron might be Rusty's great-great-great grandfather.
- Inbred and Evil: Byron refers to his family as being "tastefully inbred".

- Politically Incorrect Villain: While looking for a corpse to make a homunculi for, he dismisses one as "too Irish".
- Spoiled Brat: A wealthy child from an aristocratic family, who orders his butler around like a dog.
- Upper-Class Twit: Byron has such a large family fortune that he's guaranteed a life of frivolity. He spends his time creating monstrosities, despite knowing little about it.
- Absurdly Youthful Mother: She looks quite young, and given how old she was when she got married she might only be 22 years old.

- Old Man Marrying a Child: She claims that she was 11 years old when she married Byron's father - a 72 year old man who was senile and suffering from bone madness.
- Spot of Tea: Shown drinking tea in the one scene where she appears.
An ether-addicted professor who provides Byron with his creatures and teaches him how battling bodies goes.
- Church Going Villain: Professor Nox invokes God twice so far - describing bodybuilding as "subverting God Almighty's will for profit" and insisting that augmentations to homunculi be called Creationisming instead of Evolving.
- Everybody Has Standards: He may create abominations, but even he is briefly disturbed by Byron's lack of empathy.
- Functional Addict: He's addicted to ether, but is still able to create homunculi with science.
