Antagonists

Soul Jewel

    Asura 

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: His ultimate goal is to attain apotheosis and become either an Eldritch Abomination or a God of Evil. He succeeds... kinda.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Imbeds the Soul Jewel within his host's heart, and knocking it out is a good way to defeat him.
  • Author Avatar: For Asura, a commentator on the Spinny forum and one of the three main contributors to the story. Also a troper.
  • Back from the Dead: In between Cardboard Chronicles and Rough Draft, a digitized copy of North's consciousness created by R42 was uploaded into the body of a supersoldier. After sacrificing his humanity to become a god, he reclaims the moniker of Asura.
  • Battle Aura: A red one, though it becomes black-and-red in his Chaos Acolyte body.
  • Bald of Evil: Once his host's scalp rots away, he no longer has any hair.
  • Barbarian Longhair: Has long, unkempt black hair as a throwback to his original appearance.
  • Being Human Sucks: The only reason he uses them as hosts is that they're expendable and there's lots of them. Otherwise they can't handle the power of the Soul Jewel and break down quickly and painfully.
  • Black Eyes of Crazy: His eyes have black sclera whenever they're not Monochromatic Eyes.
  • Black Knight: One of his main host bodies, wherein he wears black plate armour, and can form red-and-black BFS's that shoot Sword Beams.
  • Blob Monster: His Chaos Acolyte body is completely amorphous underneath its exoskeleton.
  • Body Surf:
    • As his consciousness is contained in the Soul Jewel, he possesses whoever possesses it.
    • His consciousness is eventually jettisoned from the completed Soul Jewel by Deva into an approximated recreation of their original body, becoming North. Having taken over their body, Deva then assumes Asura's identity.
  • Blood Knight: Asura loves to fight opponents stronger than himself, mostly so he can take over their body if he loses.
  • Breath Weapon: He can spit beams of red energy, a holdover from his dragon host.
  • Came Back Strong: In Rough Draft it's revealed that he was reborn as a Great Old One.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Asura's half of the Soul Jewel is red, as is his Battle Aura.
  • The Dark Side Will Make You Forget: Has completely forgotten the reasons he wanted to become a god in the first place.
  • Energy Absorption: In his Chaos Acolyte body, he can absorb Chaos Energy.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Even Asura had people he cared about, but they died a long time ago.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Man-eating monster though he may be, Asura never killed a child if he could avoid it.

  • Extra Eyes: Has six eyes in his Chaos Acolyte body.
  • Extreme Omnivore: He prefers living things, but will eat just about anything to get at them.
  • Expy: His transhuman body is this to Eva Unit-01, his knight body is this to Nightmare and Berserker Guts, and his Chaos Acolyte form is part Xenomorph and part Godzilla.
  • Fangs Are Evil: As a side effect of the Jewel's power as well as magic, Asura gives himself fangs to facilitate his carnivorous diet.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Uses glamour magic to alter his host's appearance to that of his original body, though it can't hide the degeneration caused by the Soul Jewel.
  • Freudian Excuse: Maintains that he has one, even though he can't remember what it is.
  • A God Am I: Theoretically he has the power of a god, but lacks a host that can properly utilize it without degenerating.
  • Good Lips, Evil Jaws: Has this dynamic with Deva once his host body degenerates enough for its lips to rot away.
  • Healing Factor: His cybernetic armour can electrically stimulate cellular regeneration using advanced nanotechnology.
  • The Heartless: Was born out of North's bloodlust, rage, and desire for revenge and power.
  • Hellish Pupils: His pupils are vertical slits.

  • Hungry Menace: His hosts' degeneration can only be mitigated by consuming other living things, including humans.
  • I Hate Past Me: He utterly loathes his human self.
  • Instant Allegiance Artifact: The red Soul Jewel functions as one since it houses Asura's soul.
  • Ironic Hell: Just as it seems Asura — or rather, Deva's consciousness in Asura's body — is going to achieve his desire of becoming a god, Templeton obliterates him and what's left is imprisoned in Tartarus.
  • Leaking Can of Evil: He can possess whoever holds the Soul Jewel.
  • The Lost Lenore:
    • Witnessing the deaths of his wife and daughter — who he hadn't even known was born — filled him full of such self-loathing over having abandoned them that his soul split in two, the halves of which took to trying to kill each other.
    • One of Asura's first hosts was a morbid young orphan named Aisling, whose status as a nascent Hero enabled her to withstand the Soul Jewel's power. Asura came to see her as a surrogate daughter... until Deva tortured her to death in an attempt to drive Asura insane.
  • Mind Hive: While the unnamed knight forms the core of Asura's consciousness, he is a composite of fragments from the countless hosts he's had over the millennia — most of which have been predatory animals and monsters. As a result, he underwent Sanity Slippage — furthered by Deva torturing him.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: His teeth become fangs, and after his host's cheeks and lips rot away he's left with this.
  • Move in the Frozen Time: Due to possessing a TBI Timepiece, he's immune to their ability to freeze time.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Manifests four extra arms out of whatever armour his host happens to be wearing, although these are weaker than his real arms. In his Chaos Acolyte body, however, they're part of him and just as strong as his main ones.

  • Peek-a-Bangs: His bangs are long enough to partially obscure his eyes.
  • Pet the Dog: Has rare moments of what could be construed as compassion.
  • Physical God: The orignal purpose of the Soul Jewel was to empower heroes, but Asura twists it to his own purposes in an attempt to become this.
  • Possession Burnout: The Soul Jewel's power corrodes his host's body, forcing him to stave it off by consuming additional biomass or claiming a new host.
  • Power Crystal: The red Soul Jewel is usually embedded in his chest.
  • Power Degeneration: Due to the Soul Jewel's instability, it floods his host body with its overwhelming power, which causes it to corrode over time. The only way he can stave it off is by consuming biomass or acquiring a new, preferably stronger host.
  • Primal Stance: As he sheds his humanoid appearance in his Chaos Acolyte body he starts walking on all fours.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: When in a human host he has black hair and sclera, and glowing red irises and pupils, and his flesh is burnt black by overdrawing on the Soul Jewel's power. In his Chaos Acolyte body, his Battle Aura becomes black and red as well.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The irises of his host turn blood red, and as the capillaries in his eyes burst they become solid red. In his Chaos Acolyte body his sclera and pupils are solid red and his irises are glowing white.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The villainous half of a Sealed Badass in a Can. Whatever was left of his humanity is long gone and not missed.
  • Sealed Evil in a Six Pack: If the Soul Jewel is broken the shards can take over multiple hosts and will attempt to reconstitute themselves.
  • Semi-Divine: Asura has been infused with the power of the Soul Jewel, which was created by the gods of his world, but he seeks to become fully divine.

  • Super Soldier: His favourite host body, as it came equipped with a suit of Powered Armor and Energy Weapons.
  • Teleportation: His cybernetic armour is equipped with a mid-range quantum transporter.
  • Too Powerful to Live: His ultimate goal was to become a god, and he came close to doing so with the Soul Jewel's limitless power, which is why he was killed.
  • Tragic Monster: As more of his backstory is revealed, he wasn't always a bloodthirsty monster with a god complex.
  • Transformation of the Possessed: Compatable hosts will be transformed by the Soul Jewel's power instead of degenerating.
  • Volcanic Veins: Has glowing red ones when his host is human and degenerating, though in his transhuman body they are Tron Lines.
  • Was Once a Man: He was once human, though rage, bloodlust, and desire for power have twisted him into a monster.

    Deva 

  • Battle Aura: Deva's Soul Jewel wreathes his body in blue-white energy.

  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Deva's half of the Soul Jewel is blue, as is his Battle Aura.
  • Energy Being: Attempts to turn himself into a living kugelblitz.
  • Evil Counterpart: Inverted; Deva is the good counterpart to Asura. Or so it seems.
  • God Guise: Intimidates the time-warped denizens of what was once Egypt into worshipping him and Scylla as warrior gods, with himself in the vein of Ares.
  • Godhood Seeker: Deva quickly developed a god-complex long before Asura did, but it isn't until Sanity Slippage starts hitting him that he attempts to apotheose into a god.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Deva seems to be an OK person... as long as he doesn't consider you to be evil or your name isn't Asura. Then he'll show no mercy whatsoever.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: States that he represents the "good" side of North's soul.
  • Kame Hame Hadoken: How he fires off his Ki Manipulation.
  • Move in the Frozen Time: Like Asura, he has a TBI Timepiece integrated into his armor and thus is immune to their ability to stop time.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: After assuming Asura's identity and taking over an amorphous Chaos Acolyte, he shapes it into a Draconic Abomination with six arms and six eyes.
  • Mystical White Hair: Uses glamour to make his hosts' hair as white as Asura's is black, though he keeps it combed and tied back.
  • Necessarily Evil: What he considers the act of taking over another's body to be.
  • Our Liches Are Different: While he's not undead, his soul is contained within the blue Soul Jewel and takes over anyone who possesses it for a prolonged period of time.
  • The Sadist: Deva tortured Asura into madness in an attempt to corrode his humanity and turn him into a monster fit to be slain, making a point of murdering anyone Asura attempted to befriend or even help.
  • Sanity Slippage: After claiming Asura's half of the Soul Jewel for himself, he becomes affected by the same torrent of rage and hatred and predatory instincts that Asura had succumbed to.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Is assimilated by Asura to unify the Soul Jewel, but loses their Sealed Evil in a Duel and is subjugated and buried deep in the recesses of Asura's mind.
  • Semi-Divine: Like Asura, Deva is sealed within a wellspring of divine power.
  • Soul Jar: Deva's consciousness is contained within the aptly-named Soul Jewel, and takes over those who try to use it.
  • Tron Lines: His transhuman body has blue ones.
  • True Companions: Much as he might deny it, he comes to consider Scylla to be this.
  • The Unfettered: Claims he started off as being Lawful Good to the point of being Lawful Stupid, but became this in order to better fight Asura.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Deva tricked Templeton and the TBI into picking a fight with Asura, but is the one responsible for Asura's descent into madness in the first place - having tortured him for centuries out of displaced self-loathing.
  • Winged Humanoid: Has four wings with three-fingered claws on them.
  • Would Hurt a Child: One of Asura's hosts was a teenaged girl named Aisling, who he saw as a surrogate daughter. Asura refuses to divulge how Deva killed her, but it is the root of his Roaring Rampage of Revenge.

    General

  • Boxed Crook: Templeton's various incarnations stumbled across time-travel and were amalgamated into a single female gestalt being, who was arrested by the TBI for and given the choice between signing up or going to time-prison.
  • By-the-Book Cop: Templeton comes across as one of these, but is more a Cowboy Cop, as she defied TBI protocol to chase Asura.
  • Coat, Hat, Mask: Wears a brown trench coat and a hat in addition to her Cool Mask, which is based off the ones worn by medieval plague doctors.
  • Cool Sword: As the Voice of Kronos, Templeton wields the Harpē, a divine sickle-sword that can cut through anything, and even open rifts in time and space.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Some of Templeton's past incarnations were just as - if not more - evil than the villains of Cardboard Chronicles and Rough Draft. One was a wizard who performed horrifically cruel experiments to find a way of resolving his gender dysmorphia, while another was a Victorian Period inventor who created a steampunk time machine.
  • Fusion Dance: In Rough Draft, it's revealed that Agent Templeton is a composite of incarnations from across the multiverse merged together into a single female entity through exposure to the Timestream.
  • Inspector Javert: Comes across as this towards North, wanting to prosecute him for Asura's crimes.

  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Due to Templeton's uniform, most characters assumed she was male.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a lightsaber-like energy sword.
  • Mind Hive: After Templeton was exposed to the Timestream, she was composited with numerous incarnations of herself from across the multiverse and retained the memories of each of them; initially leaving her scared and confused. Over time, the memories and minds smoothed over into a single consciousness — Artemis Templeton.

  • Ray Gun: Templeton's primary ranged weapon looks like a pistol, but is actually a laser gun.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: In Cardboard Chronicles, Templeton went by male pronouns due to still being in the early stages of the Second Law of Gender-Bending. By the time of Rough Draft she fully and openly identifies as female.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: In Rough Draft, Templeton was initially Ascha'Vovina's overseer but treated them like scum — both do to being disgusted by their bloodlust and believing them to be Asura.
  • Time Police: As an agent of the TBI, Templeton was tasked with apprehending rogue time-travellers, stopping Eldritch Abominations from wreaking havoc, and otherwise maintaining what the TBI refers to as Causality.

    wrong wolf clones 

  • Adorable Abomination: In Rough Draft they've evolved into a hive-minded multiversal infestation, with even a single instance being capable of setting up cloning facilities that are Bigger on the Inside; though they still resemble Super-Deformed anthropomorphic wolves with black tattoos. Wiping them out is something that Templeton and Ascha'Vovina were charged with, to varying degrees of success.
  • Author Avatar: The clones are this for wrong wolf, whereas the baka's are oversized, monstrous versions of bakaneko - both commentators on the Spinnerette comment board.

Rough Draft

Protagonists

    Tatakai 

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Tatakai's claws can rend stone and steel like tissue paper.
  • Alien Blood: Tatakai's blood is black due to her being infected with Umbral Ichor, and can infect others in-turn.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Tatakai falls for Sarah because she was the first human to show her genuine kindness towards her.
  • Black Eyes of Crazy: Owing to her Umbral Ichor infection, Tatakai has black sclerae and luminous red irises. She's also a bloodthirsty half-kitsune with a volatile temper and tendency to devour her opponents.
  • Blood Knight: Tatakai greatly enjoys combat, but is prone to going berserk and rampaging due to her Umbral Ichor infection dialling her bloodlust up to eleven.
  • Breath Weapon: In her werefox form she can breathe black-and-red flames from her jaws.
  • Curious Qualms of Conscience: Tatakai slowly develops a conscience due to Sarah and the Seven Siblings' influence on her, though she attempts to assuage it by arguing that she did what she had to in order to survive.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Tatakai has charcoal grey skin with black Tainted Veins, black-and-red hair and eyes, and steel-colored fangs; and while she is predatory and vicious she isn't evil.
  • Death Seeker: Upon realizing how badly she traumatized Abel and accidentally injuring Ren during a fight with Kitty, Tatakai comes to the realization that her bloodlust is endangering the few people she's come to care about — even love, Tatakai is overwhelmed with grief, remorse, and despair. Concluding that she has no place among the Seven Siblings, she flees intending to return to her old life but quickly realizes that she's changed too much for that; unsuccessfully attempting to end her suffering by taking her own life.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Tatakai is very protective of those she cares about — Sarah and Abel in particular — and will not hesitate to eat anyone who threatens them.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Tatakai picks up certain Japanese phrases from watching too much anime, and peppers her speech with them.
  • Had to Be Sharp: Tatakai grew up in the crime-infested inner-city, largely fending for herself against Gangbangers, serial killers, feral beastpeople, and other criminals. As such, she has less-than-stellar social skills and responds to most threats with excessive violence.
  • I Am a Monster: Owing to her Curious Qualms of Conscience over Abel's terror towards her, Tatakai develops a sense of self-loathing and despairs that she's only good for fighting and killing.
  • Predator Turned Protector: Tatakai seeks to protect those she cares about — chiefly Sarah and Abel, and is more than happy to devour those who would try to hurt them.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: When Kuzunoha decides to kill Tatakai, deeming her too dangerous to be left alive, Tatakai ends up being impaled through the heart while protecting Abel from a sadistic kamaitachi. Since said kamaitachi survives her attempt to immolate him and resumes trying to kill Abel immediately afterwards, her sacrifice was ultimately in vain.
  • Hulk Speak: While not stupid, Tatakai is a Third-Person Person whose grasp on grammar is less-than stellar.
  • Hulking Out: Tatakai can transform into a bulky werefox form, though she can't consciously control her transformations — which tend to happen when she's enraged or bloodlusted.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: While she is initially yandere towards Sarah, she decides she doesn't mind sharing Sarah with Abel.
  • No Social Skills: Owing to growing up as a predator in the inner city slums, Tatakai has little-to-no comprehension of human society and social interactions; causing no small degree of friction between her and the Seven Siblings.
  • Partial Transformation: Due to her corruption, Tatakai cannot fully transform into her fox-monster form. Even her normal humanoid form is partially transformed due to her corruption.
  • The Power of Hate: Owing to her Umbral Ichor corruption, Tatakai draws strength from rage, bloodlust, and hatred.
  • Prehensile Tail: Tatakai has seven prehensile vulpine tails.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: When Tatakai realizes that her tendency to go berserk in combat places those she's grown to care about and wants to protect in danger, she is overcome with guilt and despair; running away to protect them from herself. Coming across Yona and saving him renews a kernel of hope that she might be good for something other than killing, and after getting a pep-talk from Ohkwari she attempts to patch things up with Abel... who angrily dismisses her as an irredeemable monster just as evil as her mother.
  • Semi-Divine: Tatakai is half-Olympian and half fox-spirit, though she has yet to tap into her divine nature.
  • The Social Darwinist: Tatakai was raised to categorize things into "prey" and "not-prey", and spent much of her life preying on the former. Discovering the infinite layers of complexity beyond that leaves her confused.
  • Tainted Veins: In her corrupted state, Tatakai has tendrils of a highly-resilient black polymer-like substance formed from Umbral Ichor layered overtop of and fused to her skin, creating the appearance of black veins covering her body.
  • Yandere: Tatakai is initially violently possessive towards Sarah, and flies into a rage when camera footage of Ren kissing her is shown on the evening news.

    Sarah Lawson 

  • All-Loving Hero: Sarah goes out of her way to be kind and gentle towards everyone she meets, which is what leads to Tatakai identifying her as "not-prey" and going out of her way to protect her.
  • The Atoner: Sarah blames herself for the murder of a catgirl she befriended and gave a necklace to as a child, due to the concellors of the summer camp she had been attending assuming the catgirl had stolen the necklace and beaten her to death to retrieve it.
  • Closet Key: Sarah serves as one for Tatakai, who didn't even know what love was until she met her.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Raised by controlling and emotionally-abusive parents who are prejudiced against beastpeople, Sarah's beloved older brother was declared MIA after he joined the army. Sent to a summer camp in order to cheer her up, she befriended a Cat Girl and gave her a necklace. The following day the cat-girl was beaten to death by the counsellors for "stealing" from her, leaving Sarah deeply traumatized and blaming herself.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Her parents are prejudiced against beastpeople, and both of Sarah's love interests are half-kitsune.
  • Morality Chain: Sarah serves as one for Tatakai, with her influence more than anything being pretty much the only thing keeping her from going on a berserk rampage.
  • Rescue Romance: Sarah develops a crush on Tatakai after she saves her from a group of muggers, though Abel questions whether Sarah's feelings for Tatakai are genuine or because of Sarah's past trauma making her want to "fix" Tatakai's deep flaws.

  • Half-Human Hybrid: They are half Chaos Warrior and half fox-spirit.

  • Little Bit Beastly: They look like humans with vulpine ears and tails, though they can appear fully-human with concentration.

  • Prehensile Tail: They have five prehensile vulpine tails.

    Abel 

  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Abel can manifest blades of Chaos Energy from her hands.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Abel has low self-esteem due to her low combat aptitude compared to her siblings, leaving her feeling unable to protect those she cares about.

  • Love Hurts: Abel is both attracted to and terrified of Tatakai, and struggles to sort out whether she loves or hates her.
  • Recurring Dreams: Abel has recurring nightmares about being attacked by a nightmarish monster, stemming from Tatakai attacking her when they were toddlers.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: When around Sarah, Abel tends to be reduced to a blushing mess — particularly when teased over her crush by Catalina and Vulnes.

    Pareina 

  • The Chains of Commanding: Despite being outwardly composed, Pareina places a great deal of pressure on herself to be a good leader and blames herself if anything bad happens to her siblings.
  • The Leader: Pareina is the most level-headed of Wolf.Spider's kids, and is thus their field-leader.
  • Mind over Matter: Pareina possesses telekinesis, though she lacks fine control and using it for prolonged periods or to lift multiple/heavy objects gives her migraines.
  • Number Two: As the most mature and level-headed of the siblings, she's second-in-command to their father.

    Surinae 

  • Good Is Not Soft: She's not above refusing to heal minor injuries, and often lashes out at her siblings for getting themselves hurt — especially if it's doing something stupid.
  • Healing Hands: She possesses the ability to heal others, but doing so for prolonged periods and/or severe injuries is very draining.
  • Team Medic: She's in charge of the mansion's hospital wing and medical bay, though while she's studied medical texts she has zero intention of becoming a doctor — not wanting her powers to pigeonhole her choice of career.

    Catalina 

  • Academic Athlete: Despite being into sports and physical training, Cat's no slouch academically and protests to Pareina that she has an above-average GPA.
  • Lovable Jock: Cat is the bulkiest of the siblings, spending most of her time in the gym working out or doing combat training; though she's also very affable towards not just her sisters but Sarah and Tatakai as well.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: While at school, Cat was a member of several sports teams and aiming for an athletic scholarship.
  • Super Strength: Catalina is the physically-strongest and toughest of the Seven Siblings, but holds back when competing in sports to make it a fair game.

  • Berserk Button: She hates it when people lie to her, since there's no point, but especially hates it when people lie to themselves.
  • The Empath: She can sense others emotions and feelings, but has very little control over it.
  • Granola Girl: Erina is a vegan, tends to a greenhouse and hydroponics bay, and practises meditation. She's also the most idealistic of the siblings, even in the face of her empathic powers giving her an all-too-clear window into the darkness of the mind and soul.
  • Shipper on Deck: She encourages Abel to accept that she has feelings for both Sarah and Tatakai, and work towards processing and letting go of her fear and anger towards the latter.

    Vulnes 

  • Big Brother Bully: Vulnes often torments and teases Abel, and when called on it tries to argue that Misery Builds Character and she's doing it to toughen Abel up.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: In addition to being a coding wizard, Vulnes is skilled at designing and engineering a variety of technologically advanced machines — though not to the level of her half-sister Arte. Her pride and joy are a flet of insect-sized spycams, which she mainly uses to gain blackmail material on her siblings.
  • Gamer Chick: Vulnes is a hardcore gamer who spends her free time playing dating sims, visual novels, fighting games, first-person shooters, and pretty much every other genre out there.
  • Playful Hacker: Vulnes often amuses herself by hacking into Neo-Goliath's servers to steal blueprints, upload custom-made viruses, and expose cybercrimes.
  • Shipper on Deck: Vulnes ships Abel x Sarah x Tatakai as a invoked One True Threesome, and isn't afraid to tease Abel over her complicated love-life.
  • Techno Wizard: Owing to her Machine Empathy, Vulnes is a coding genius who can do just about anything with a computer.
  • Troll: Vulnes spends a lot of her time on Internet forums, and has developed a nasty sense of humor as a result. She enjoys teasing and harassing others — especially Abel — but frequently goes too far without realizing it.

    Reynard 

  • Love at First Sight: He's instantly smitten with Ohkwari's grandson Yona.
  • Teleportation: Reynard is the only sibling who knows how to use the Instantanious Movement Technique, but using it for long-distance or repeated movement leaves him drained.

  • God Job: Prior to rebelling, Ascha'Vovina was used by the gods of the Ruling Pantheon as a Beast of the Apocalypse, maintaining the The Cycle of Empires by annihilating civilizations in the "Decay" and "The Long Night" stages... as well as waging war against other pantheons and subjugating other planets.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: In order to kill the tyrannical gods of their world, the mortal half of Ascha'Vovina sacrificed their humanity and became the very thing they'd set out to destroy.
  • Hijacking Cthulhu: Ascha'Vovina was "born" when the Execrated Hero — a Semi-Divine warrior who had been used and betrayed by the gods — Body Surfed their soul and consciousness into the body of the eldritch dragon-god Ialprg'Vovina. For its part, Ialprg'Vovina lets the Execrated Hero do what they want so long as they keep them well-fed and occasionally let them cut loose and rampage.

  • Mechanical Muscles: Underneath the Gigeresque outer layer of their exoskeleton is an inner layer that resembles muscles made of black metal.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: Ascha'Vovina hates humans almost as much as they hate the gods, to the point of almost being an Omnicidal Maniac, and sees everything other than themselves as prey.
  • Mistaken Identity: Ascha'Vovina is — possibly deliberately — mistaken for Asura by the TBI, who then partner them with Templeton. Templeton, who hates Asura, proceeds to treat Ascha'Vovina — not undeservedly — like trash, souring any possibility of a working relationship.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal:
    • Ascha'Vovina hates the gods and attempted to kill them after spending countless millennia as their "pet".
    • Ascha'Vovina turned against the TBI due to Templeton treating them like scum, owing to her believing that they were her old enemy Asura.

  • One-Winged Angel: Ascha'Vovina can transform from an Animesque humanoid form to a six-armed draconic monster, though their preferred form is an intermediary form possessing traits of both.
  • Power Limiter: Formerly possessing the power to kill gods and annihilate entire civilizations, Ascha'Vovina's power was greatly constrained during their multiversal rampage. After being captured by the TBI, Ascha'Vovina was outfitted with a device to further constrain their power so that they couldn't run amock, giving Templeton the controls.
  • Power Of Hate: Ascha'Vovina feeds off negative emotions like hatred, rage, and bloodlust; and grows stronger through combat and causing destruction.

  • Royal "We": When they speak, Ascha'Vovina refers to themselves with plural pronouns.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Twelve years prior to the beginning of Rough Draft, Ascha'Vovina was crushed when the continent of Australia was turned into an asteroid. This put them out of commission for those twelve years, until an illegal mining operation woke them up.

Supporting Characters

    Yuriale 

  • Author Avatar: Of mouthofxenu, one of the commentators on the Spinnerette forum.
  • Back from the Dead: She was killed by Ascha'Vovina, but Came Back Strong due to her Semi-Divine nature.
  • Casual Kink: She uses her petrifying gaze as a form of BDSM, as those she petrifies cannot move but are fully aware of their surroundings and anything done to them.
  • Crusading Lawyer: Yuriale's day-job in modern times is a lawyer who is retained by Wolf.Spider's family and also does pro-bono work representing beastpeople in both civil and criminal lawsuits.
  • Deadly Gaze: Played with, as while she can petrify others with her gaze, they're not killed by it and can be unpetrified. Furthermore, while Medusa's gaze petrified and killed anyone who made eye contact with her — which Yuriale maintains was Power Incontinence — Yuriale can control whether or not her gaze petrifies.
  • Gorgeous Gorgon: Yuriale is a Gorgon, the niece of Medusa herself, but is more beautiful than monstrous; and maintains that the reputation of the original three Gorgons as hideous monsters was propaganda by the Olympians... though she herself is capable of assuming a more-monstrous form.
  • Magical Eye: Yuriale can petrify those who make eye contact with her, though the people she petrifies are not killed and remain fully aware of their surroundings.
  • One-Winged Angel: While she prefers a mostly human-looking form, she can transform into a monstrous form with fangs, snakes for hair, bronze wings and claws, and serpentine coils for legs.
  • Prehensile Hair: Yuriale can shape her hair into prehensile tendrils that she can use to attack, restrain, or defend.
  • Rescue Romance: Yuriale rescued Wolfen from being killed a werewolf, and was touched when Wolfen called her beautiful despite her monstrous form. Several years later, Yuriale learned that Wolfen was being forced into a political marriage by her father and crashed the wedding, eloping with her before singlehandedly deposing King Wolfor to put Wolfen on the throne.
  • Semi-Divine: As the niece of Medusa, Yuriale is the granddaughter of the primordial sea-gods Kētō and Phorcys. This enables her to apotheosize after being killed by Ascha'Vovina.
  • Snake People: Yuriale can transform her legs into serpentine coils, which she can use to constrict opponents like a python.
  • Yandere: Yuriale acts violently possessive towards Wolfen, though it's (mostly) just an act.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Yuriale has green hair, signifying that she isn't human.

    Princess Destiny 

  • Author Avatar: Of Destiny, one of the commentators on the Spinnerette forum.
  • Bedlah Babe: Destiny usually wears a Belly Dancer outfit, befitting her nature as a djinni.
  • Happily Adopted: Upon being freed by Wolf.Spider, she was happily adopted by Wolfen and Yuriale.
  • Immortal Immaturity: She's a djinni who's hundreds — if not thousands — of years old, but behaves like a mischievous and more-than-a-little bratty teenage girl.
  • Our Genies Are Different: Destiny is a djinni who was sealed in a lamp, which wound up in Wolfen's possession. Upon being freed, she was summarily adopted into the royal family — to Prince Croco's ire.
  • The Prankster: Possibly owing to countless centuries being sealed away in a lamp, Destiny enjoys using her magic to pull pranks on Wolfen, Croco, and the various maids; and only Yuriale can keep her in-line.
  • Reality Warper: Destiny is capable of low-tier reality-warping, provided someone makes a wish using her lamp.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Destiny has reddish-pink hair, though she can change the color at will due to being a djinni.

  • Panthera Awesome: Marisa was engineered using lion, leopard, cheetah, tiger, and jaguar genes.
  • Super Soldier: Marisa was engineered for combat, possessing strength, speed, reflexes, and senses surpassing those of even other feline-type beastpeople. However, this made her getting pregnant a risky affair, since she hadn't been designed with reproduction in-mind. Her child would have been stillborn, but Surinae resuscitated and stabilized the baby's genetic anomalies with her healing powers, and even managed to fix some of Marisa's Clone Degeneration while she was at it.

    Kuzunoha

  • Chosen Conception Partner: In the middle of a Despair Event Horizon over the certainty of being tortured and executed for her umpteenth failure to kill "Imari" — and worse, starting to fall in love with her — Kuzunoha decided that in order to ensure her own safety she'd need to have a child powerful enough to protect her. When Zeus visited her in "Imari"'s form, Kuzunoha put the moves on him, and became pregnant with Tatakai.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Kuzunoha was born the daughter of the original Kuzunoha from Japanese folklore, and was brought up to be a Miko to Inari. Her mother was murdered right in front of her by a cruel onmyōji, who proceeded to enslave her and treat her as a tool to fight and slay other yōkai — her only solace being in the arms of an also-enslaved jorōgumo. Even after she finally had enough and killed the onmyōji, the gods punished her for derelicting her sacred duty by sending her on what was meant to be a suicide mission.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: She was used by a cruel onmyōji to hunt other yōkai, and even after killing him she was punished by the gods with having to capture or kill the powerful nine-tailed fox Hakumen Kinmō.
  • In Love with the Mark: When Kuzunoha finally caught up with the Hakumen Kinmō — now going by "Imari" — her nemesis was heavily pregnant. Not willing to kill unborn babies even for the sake of fulfilling her mission, Kuzunoha decided to wait until they were born before killing her nemesis. However, during that time she found herself being seduced by "Imari" and genuinely fell in love with her.
  • Interspecies Romance: She fell in love with a jorōgumo named Mayatomo Ōnoki when they were both enslaved by a cruel onmyōji.

  • Offing the Offspring: Deciding that Tatakai was too dangerous to be left alive, and fearing that she would be used as a weapon to cause untold destruction and calamity, Kuzunoha decided to kill her own daughter and destroy her body.
  • Power Limiter: To keep from revealing the existence of gods and spirits to the mortals, Kuzunoha was marked with divine ink to seal away the majority of her power, though this also left her vulnerable to attacks she would've otherwise been able to effortlessly shrug off.
  • Really 700 Years Old: While she looks to be in her mid-twenties, she's actually almost 1100 years old.

The satellite's AI, GloDAS, was programmed by Vulnes in an attempt to mitigate the damage done, with mixed results.

  • Bears Are Bad News: Ohkwari is an ancient goddess who can transform from a middle-aged woman into a colossal bear at-will, and even in her humanoid form tends to be gruff and no-nonsense. Angering her is a one-way ticket to a mauling.
