The Protagonist


Vincent Brooks

Voice Actors: Kōichi Yamadera (JP), Troy Baker (EN)

A 32-year-old computer programmer and the protagonist of our story; a fairly unambitious man whose life gets turned around very quickly after his girlfriend Katherine McBride starts to pressure him into getting married, and he is seduced by the mysterious Catherine. At the same time, he's having nightmares where he has to climb towards a cathedral alongside countless other men turned into sheep in order to escape.

  • Ambiguously Christian: In a conversation with Morgan on Day 5, he can discuss whether or not he believes in the afterlife.
  • Afro Asskicker: His fellow nightmare sheep seem to see him as such, anyway — apparently, his hair resembles a 'fro on his sheep self. Two sheep in Full Body immediately recognize him in the bar because of it.
  • Badass Baritone: Freak-outs aside, his voice is pretty deep. While he looks and acts like a schmuck most of the time, he can stand up and push mountains when properly motivated.
  • Badass Normal: Especially in the true cheater ending, when he takes over Hell as its new lord with only a shortsword while being in his undies. Best part, he doesn't even think it's a big deal.
  • Bad Liar: To an almost absurd degree. Not that being a good liar would've helped, since both girls knew what was going on from the beginning.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He can be seriously scary when he truly gets angry. Boss just so happens to learn that the hard way.
  • Butt-Monkey: His romantic mishaps are played for laughs... at first.
  • The Cameo: Well, in a sense. A look-alike appears in Persona 3 Portable as "Man Drinking Alone", where he talks about getting weird nightmares and how a strange girl who suddenly appeared has suddenly thrown his life for a loop. While fans initially believed him to be the real Vincent, Word Of God later clarified the matter.
  • Cassandra Truth: None of Vincent's friends believe him when he tells them that he talks to Catherine at the bar. Turns out that Catherine is only visible to Vincent because she is a succubus and made it look in front of others that Vincent was talking to himself. Erica also doesn't believe Vincent until she sees with Vincent that Boss was behind the nightmares.
  • Chick Magnet: According to Orlando, he used to be very popular with girls when he was younger. Not so much nowadays, though he did catch the attention of Catherine. Though there are bigger reasons for that. Heck, even in the modern day, he's engaged to Katherine, Catherine has eyes on him, and Erica's response to him successfully intimidating Boss, otherwise known as Dumuzid, a freaking god, by threatening to stab him to death was to blush from how manly he was. He even ends up attracting a whole lot of succubi in the "True Cheater" ending because he was so handsome.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: When he confronts Boss about the nightmares, he's so pissed off that this is the result.
  • Color Motif: Vincent is associated with the color pink, as shown by his pink t-shirt, his pink boxers, and the pink bar he attends. The color is used to reflect his love life as Vincent is stuck between 2 women and can't decide if he's ready to settle down and grow up. The color is also used to reflect his childishness as the story is about Vincent coming of age and accepting that he needs to take responsibility for himself and not make Katherine feel like she has to push him in every step of their relationship.
  • Coming of Age Story: The late bloomer variety. The plot is about Vincent struggling with taking responsibility for himself and making that big step into his adulthood by taking risks and making commitments.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: As opposed to most Shin Megami Tensei leads, who are high school student Silent Protagonists with supernatural powers and characterizations defined largely by Dialogue Tree options, he's an average adult guy with a Canon Name, voice, and personality.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: In real life, he's pretty meek and spineless all around. In the dream world, he's a lot more determined, and openly defiant to his tormentors. His ability to quickly devise climbing techniques shows he can be especially clever, too. Even in reality, if you push him to his breaking point, he is not afraid of getting physical with people and outright threatens to shank Boss if he doesn't spill the beans about what's going on.
  • Demon of Human Origin: In the True Cheater ending, he becomes a demon lord with Catherine as his bride.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Comes close to crossing it when he loses Katherine. Depending on how you play, he can either get back with her, get over it, or make the last leap over it.
  • Determinator:
    • Just try and tell this guy that he's not going to get through the night's 'mare.
    • Upon getting a Game Over, using one of your retries prompts him to say "Now's not the time to be dead!"
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Catherine threatening him, breaking into his house multiple times and beating the shit out of him in the bar's bathroom are played for laughs, despite Vincent obviously fearing for his life and sanity.
  • Double Standard Rape: Female on Male: The game's whole conflict is the "affair" he had with Catherine. Said "affair" involved him getting drunk and Catherine raping him. He is treated as a cheater for this.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: If you choose C/Katherine and get the True endings.
  • The Everyman: He starts out as an ordinary guy with fairly mundane problems. Then he starts having deadly nightmares.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Of his 3 love interests, he manages to attract Rin, who identifies as male. Though it's likely since Rin is an alien from a One-Gender Race, he has no qualms about pursuing relationships with other men.
  • Evil Overlord: Sort of becomes one in the True Cheater ending, if rulers of demon realms count.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: In the "True Cheater" ending, after he becomes a demon lord.
  • A God Is You: Trisha invokes this by replacing Dumuzid with the Player if you beat the Babel stages.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: A lovely pair of boxers with pink spots that Vincent brings with him to every Nightmare. Apparently, Vincent's closet is full of them. Also, if you bought the "Love is Over" edition, you score a real-life pair of your very own.
  • Grew a Spine: After letting himself get pushed around all week, Vincent gains some assertion when he confronts the Boss over the Nightmare, and wrings every answer he can get out of the old man.
  • Happily Married: To his girl of choice in the "True Lovers", "True Cheater" and in the "True Rin" endings. In the former, he marries Katherine in a traditional white wedding. The latter has him passionately kissing Catherine after he turns into a demon, along with a bunch of succubi, right on top of poor Nergal. Vincent also ends up married to Catherine in a traditional white wedding in Catherine's new ending.
  • Hell Has New Management: In the True Cheater ending, he marries Catherine and chooses to stay with her in the netherworld, eventually becoming a demon himself. Not just any old demon, mind... The most powerful one in existence.
  • Hellish Pupils: He becomes an incubus in the True Cheater ending and gains slitted pupils.
  • Hope Bringer: To the other sheep. They start looking up to him and are inspired by his determination and his success at climbing the tower.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Possibly subverted; while Vincent himself makes mistakes, a fully lawful Vincent can be seen as this.
  • Jaw Drop: At least twice per day.
  • Large Ham: Especially in the English version, where it's clear that Troy Baker had a lot of fun going overboard with his yells.
  • Loser Protagonist: He's in his thirties, doesn't even have a kitchen in the hole he calls an apartment, goes out drinking every night, and has a job that he's never shown at.
  • Manchild: Starts out as a less lighthearted/comical version — Vincent is constantly late for work, he slacks off, he does not exercise basic hygiene or cleaning habits, forgets important dates, he shows no interest in personal growth or developing relationships (having settled into an apathetic rut with Katherine and only ever talking about himself with his high school friends), and he fawns helplessly over the first pretty face he sees. Without question, he's Atlus' most immature protagonist to date (he can get better in a few endings, and in a few he can get worse, eventually devolving into a Psychopathic Manchild).
  • Messy Hair: Has some pretty scruffy bedhair, to where it's his distinguishing trait as a sheep to other sheep.
  • Nice Guy: Commitment issues and "cheating" aside, he's mostly friendly and approachable, even encouraging others when they feel hopeless.
  • Order Versus Chaos: Represented in the game as Commitment vs. Freedom. Making the choice or not forms the crux of his Character Development.
  • The Paragon: He can encourage the rest of the sheep to endure through the climbing, to press on despite the difficulty.
  • Perpetual Poverty: He just started a new job and checking the ATM says he doesn't have a whole lot of money especially if it’s about supporting Katherine, and a potential baby, as well, he seems to run his drinks on a tab at the Stray Sheep, and Katherine mentions his drinking not being a very cheap past-time, either. Erica even uses "paying [his] tab" as a threat at one point. Although he still had the money to spend on a new laptop and the new model of his phone that came out last week.
  • Power is Sexy: It's implied that this is the reason why so many Horny Devils end up fawning all over him in the True Cheater ending, as he becomes the netherworld's most powerful demon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He ends up gaining red eyes after transforming into a demon in the "True Cheater" ending. Unlike the pathetic Nergal, he's a more effective demon lord with a massive (female) following.
  • Say My Name: "C/KATHERRIINNNNEEE!!!" (even at the Title Screen!)
  • Sex God: Can become an In-Universe one, at least for the demons, if the True Cheater route is taken. He's so attractive that all the succubi start procrastinating from their duties so they could be around him.
  • Sexually Transmitted Superpowers: In the "True Freedom" ending, he marries the Succubus Catherine, and after a time-skip, he's turned into a demon himself and become the new King of Hell.
  • Shadow Archetype: Shadow of Vincent of course, hinting towards a Continuity towards the Persona series.
  • Slouch of Villainy: True Cheater ending, oh yes. And it is awesome.
  • Spotting the Thread: Downplayed. He realizes that Boss was the only one who ever saw Catherine, but he doesn't deduce the implications until said other character accidentally blunders away the true extent of their involvement with his nightmares.
  • Super Strength: Not normally, but in the Nightmares, he can move ANY block type barring the Immovable Blocks. There's also no limit to how many blocks in a row he can move, which can include either all of one block type or several block types at once (white blocks, heavy blocks, etc...).
  • Take a Third Option: The True Freedom Endings, in which he rejects both girls. Also does this if you choose to pursue Rin instead of the other two girls.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Towards the end. Even moreso if you choose Catherine and get the "True Cheater" ending, where Vincent apparently fought and dethroned a powerful demon off-screen, and took the power for himself.
  • Team Dad: Towards the other sheep. As the nights go on, they all really start looking up to him. Often he'll teach them any techniques he's learned thus far.
  • This Loser Is You: See Loser Protagonist above.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: Deconstructed, real or not, he does embrace his cheating heart, at least at first. He can also be a bit cold toward Katherine, instead of being adult enough to just break up with her, and clearly has an alcohol problem. In spite of all this, however, we see just how horrific this trope really is and how he most certainly does not deserve even a tenth of what he goes through, just because he's Jerkass with real issues that he needs to work through. He's also not beyond redemption, so there's that.
  • Voice of the Legion: True Cheater ending, natch.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: In the Nightmare Stages, where all he's wearing is his boxers.

The Catherines



Voice Actors: Miyuki Sawashironote  (Full Body options: Mamiko Notonote , Ami Koshimizunote , Aoi Yūkinote , Yui Horienote , Kana Asuminote , Haruka Tomatsunote , Megumi Toyoguchinote , Rie Kugimiyanote , Rina Satonote , Nana Mizukinote , Kana Hanazawanote , Marina Inouenote , Ayana Taketatsunote ), (JP), Laura Bailey (EN)
The titular seductress; Catherine seduces Vincent at the Stray Sheep bar and it's after meeting her that his nightmares begin. She is quite the Clingy Jealous Girl and is implied to be more than a little crazy.
  • Actor Allusion: All of her available voice actresses have played at least one character who was cheated (or, for the Persona characters, has the option to be cheated) on by their significant other. Further, most of them have also played various characters in previous Atlus games.
  • Appearance Is in the Eye of the Beholder: She appears as the Ms. Fanservice of her current target, to the point her age, build, race, skin and hair colors will vary wildly from person to person.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Her boss forms.
    • The Immoral Beast, whose face is a walking mish-mash of a butt and a vagina with eyes, represents the sin and lust that will warp Vincent and (potentially) kill him if he stays for too long.
    • Her second boss form, found in the Cathedral, is a desiccated corpse with a mouth full of sharp teeth; she's a monster who lures unsuspecting men with an attractive veneer.
  • Babies Ever After: In final post-credits image of Catherine's new ending, it shows that she has had 4 children with Vincent.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Katherine's Betty.
  • Character Title: The only one in the localized version. In the Japanese version, she shares this trope with Katherine.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She does not take no for an answer, and if anyone tries to say otherwise, she tends to get... violent.
  • Cosmic Retcon: In Full Body, achieving Catherine's new Ending has Catherine using Time Travel to transport herself and Vincent back to Vincent's high school days, where Catherine has become a student in Vincent's class. She becomes his girlfriend in place of Katherine, and they get Happily Married a few years later.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: She's not only a succubus, but she's the daughter of the Lord of The Underworld.
  • The Dragon: Mutton has Catherine seduce men in order to test if they're worthy of evading his deathtraps.
  • Dominatrix: In most of the pictures in the Good Cheater Ending, it seems Vincent has a BDSM kink.
  • Dude Magnet: Men flock to her, such as Vincent and Steve. This in part because she's a succubus, but most of the men in the game have expressed attraction or fallen for her, in her many forms.
  • Femme Fatale: She's a succubus tasked with finding men who are single or cheating on their significant others to be tested in the Nightmare.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: She takes on the ideal appearance of whatever the target's desire is. The true cheater ending shows what is potentially part of her true form, a body with demonic wings, ram horns, and black and white geometric patterns all over her skin. But even then, her face and hair still remain as Vincent's ideal woman.
  • Freudian Trio: As of Full Body, of the three love interests, she's the chaotic Id.
  • Giant Waist Ribbon: She wears a large red sash around her waist tied in a bow.
  • Godiva Hair: One of the provocative pictures she sends Vincent has her hair covering her boobs.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: A lighthearted version in the True Cheater ending, where she becomes queen of the netherworld, ruling alongside Vincent.
  • Happily Married: Her and Vincent get hooked up in the True Cheater ending, becoming the King and Queen of the netherworld. In Full Body, there is an ending where Vincent and Catherine have a more traditional wedding in the normal world with Catherine now visible to everyone.
  • Hidden Depths: She actual has decent programming skills which are enough to land her a job developing video games at Fowles Electronics.
  • Horned Humanoid: Her true form is a pale-skinned, horned succubus.
  • Horny Devils: Her true nature is that of a succubus, who feeds on the lust of men.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She bursts into the story espousing how fun it is to be free and independent, but later phone calls with her reveal that she still lives with her father.
  • In Love with the Mark:
    • In the Good and True Cheater Endings, she admits that she'd been ignoring the other men she was sent to seduce because she wanted to spend more time with Vincent.
    • It's heavily implied that the reason Steve found out about Vincent is because Catherine's mind wasn't on the job.
    • She actually fell in love with a human shortly before meeting Vincent, but broke off their affair when he couldn't bring himself to let go of earthly pleasures (read: beer) to really be with her.
  • Invisible to Normals: She can only be seen by the men she seduces.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Like Katherine. Only here, she can be physically abusive and pushy, but she still genuinely loves Vincent. (Well, they are both in the gray zone.)
  • Karma Houdini: Despite being an accessory to more than a few deaths and ruining multiple relationships, she never is called out for this and can even be married in two endings.
  • Letting Her Hair Down: After she uses Cosmic Retcon to appear as a human girl in her "New" True Ending, she is shown with straight hair.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: A particularly dark, Invoked version.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Invoked, seeing as how she's a succubus, she takes on the appearance of Vincent's ideal Ms. Fanservice. Exaggerated in Full Body, where ten additional voice actresses re-recorded Catherine's lines so the player can select their "ideal" version.
  • Naked Apron: In one of the pictures in the Good Cheater ending.
  • Nice Mean And In Between: The Mean to Katherine's In-Between and Rin's Nice.
  • One-Winged Angel: She turns into an enormous, monstrous version of herself in a nightmare Vincent has, so she can chase down and murder Katherine, and, supposedly, Vincent.
  • Only One Name: She's just known as "Catherine", you never learn her last name. This is probably because she comes from an ancient Mesopotamian pantheon that doesn't use family names.
  • Our Gods Are Different: Since her father is named Nergal, a god within the same pantheon as Dumuzid and Ishtar, and may very well be that Nergal, this technically makes her a goddess as well. Since her father is a god of destruction and the underworld, she just so happens to take a demonic form just as he does.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Katherine's Blue. Even has a bit of red on her outfit while Katherine has a bit of blue.
  • Ret-Gone: She could only interact with Vincent in the first place, but when she was defeated in the Nightmare, all of her calls, texts, and pictures vanished from his phone.
  • Romantic Fake–Real Turn: Initially begins a relationship with Vincent as part of her job as a succubus, but as the story progresses, she begins to develop actual feelings for him. By the time Vincent breaks up with her, she is genuinely upset. Depending on the Karma Meter, she can marry Vincent at the end of the story.
  • Secret Test of Character: What her seductions ultimately constitute. Falling for her charms gets you sent to the nightmare.
  • Succubus in Love: Genuinely falls in love with Vincent to the point she rather be with him then temp any other men. She even marries Vincent in two different endings
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: She's the pretty succubus daughter of the fat, ugly, bearded Nergal.
  • The Unreveal:
    • We never find out exactly what she looked like to Steve (the game pans away during Steve's description of her and we don't get to hear it), only that she wasn't blonde-haired, nor white.
    • Finally averted in the novelization, which provides artwork of what Catherine looks like to other people, namely Orlando (who sees her as a dark-skinned Hispanic woman), Jonny (who sees her as a near exact copy of Katherine), and Steve (who sees her as a freckled Asian girl).
  • Walking Spoiler: Just look at her trope list! You can say that she kicks off a large portion of the events, but going beyond that gets to the point that you are close to revealing something.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Goes into an utter panic mode during the swarm of ants one morning in Vincent's room. Rather appropriate, since she's a succubus demon, and demons represent chaos, something that the human Katherine isn't.
  • Yandere: Notably on Day 7, where she beats the hell out of Vincent for even trying to break up with her. In Full Body, when in Rin's Route on Day 8, she kills the nightmare versions of Rin (whom she realizes Vincent had fallen for earlier) and Katherine (part of Vincent's fears of her finding out he's in another relationship).


Katherine McBride

Voice Actors: Kotono Mitsuishi (JP), Michelle Ruff (EN)
Vincent's girlfriend. They met at a high school reunion and struck up a relationship. She's said to be a career woman, but she also wants to get married. The pressure over whether or not to do so is partially what sets Vincent's story into motion.
  • Accidental Murder: Ends up doing this to Catherine before The Cathedral, though it turns out to have been All Just a Dream.
  • Action Girl: Only in the dream world, where she actually does a good job at climbing. However, the AI can make the experience rather frustrating.
  • Animal Motifs: Ants, which symbolize a need to conform to an orderly way of life. Ants show up in most of the cutscenes where Katherine and Vincent are together, and usually appear in some sort of way related to her. Her rival for Vincent's affections is also freaked out by ants.
  • All Guys Want Cheerleaders: In Full Body, she is seen rejecting the advances of a couple football players in a High School Flashback.
  • Ax-Crazy: If you are on Rin's Route in Full Body, the 8th Day dream sequence has Katherine attacking both Catherine and Vincent with a fire axe. She is eventually slaughtered by Catherine's chainsaw.
  • The Baby Trap: She uses the fact that she's pregnant to take control of Vincent's finances and actively tries to push him to marrying her because of it. She keeps this up even when she finds out she's not pregnant.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Catherine's Veronica.
  • Broken Smile: Develops one during the breakup scene, although it's small.
  • Character Title: With Catherine in the Japanese version, where their names are spelled the same way.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Vincent. May become a victorious or an unlucky one depending on the ending.
  • Control Freak: She demands that Vincent stop smoking - which is not an completely unreasonable request - but she also says she'll be taking control of Vincent's finances without bothering to ask his permission for it.
  • Death Glare: Gives Vincent one hell of a look in the dream world before discovering his affair.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: In her Good Endings.
  • Dude Magnet: She is pretty popular with the guys. Apart from both Vincent and Jonny, she rejects the advances of a couple football players in high school.
  • Financial Abuse: Says she'll be taking control of Vincent's finances after discovering her pregnancy, claiming that it's because he needs to be more responsible. She keeps up with this even after discovering she's not pregnant.
  • Freudian Trio: As of Full Body, of the three love interests, she's the lawful Superego.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Is that... blonde? Light brown? Vaguely pinkish?
  • Happily Married: To Vincent in the True Lovers ending.
  • Hidden Depths: Turns out she knew that Vincent was cheating all along.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being a cold, domineering person, she legitimately loves Vincent and has his best interests at heart, despite knowing that he may not want to follow through with them.
  • Ice Queen: Her coldness is rather blatant. The first boss in the nightmare world, she returns in the fifth stage, "Quadrangle", where the tower practically takes place in a blizzard.
  • Inopportune Voice Cracking: Non-comedic (and possibly unintentional on Kotono Mitsuishi's part, but still) example: If you listen closely to the Japanese dub, when Katherine screams loudly on Day 8 after accidentally killing Catherine, her voice starts out really high-pitched, and then almost immediately breaks and becomes very scratchy.
  • Leaving You to Find Myself: One of the new endings in Full Body has her leaving Vincent and upon self-reflection, decides to improve her life by becoming a model. When they meet again, before departing, she convinces him to take his freedom like she did and live his life.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Due to her Financial Abuse of Vincent and attempting to use a variant of The Baby Trap to get him to marry her, even maintaining it after finding out she's not actually pregnant.
  • Meaningful Name: Her last name is McBride.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Full Body showed that she is quite the looker. And in her new ending, she still has the looks to attract suitors.
  • Nice Mean And In Between: The In-Between to Catherine's Mean and Rin's Nice.
  • Not So Stoic: Majority of the time, she's pretty calm, but flips her shit in the dream world where she finds out Vincent is cheating and gets into a heated argument with Catherine. It's even more evident about the fact that she's not pregnant when Catherine questions her and Katherine gives her a slightly stuttered retort. In the real world, she takes it rather gracefully.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Catherine's Red. Even has a bit of blue on her outfit while Catherine has a bit of red.
  • Secret Test of Character: Shortly after breaking the news to Vincent, she discovered she wasn't pregnant after all, but wanted to see if Vincent would come clean about his affair if she had been.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: She yells a nice one at Catherine during 8th Day.
    Katherine: You're the one who should be leaving, bitch!



Voice Actors: Aya Hirano (JP), Brianna Knickerbocker (EN)

A new character introduced in the Full Body Updated Re-release. Commonly goes by the name "Rin" and is also a pianist hired by Boss to play at the Stray Sheep Bar. Rin serves as a third "Catherine" for Vincent to romance, offering a third option in the Order Versus Chaos exploration of relationships in the game.

  • Ambiguously Bi: Rin shows no romantic interest in anyone besides Vincent, but also claims not to care much about a potential partner's gender or species.
  • Amnesiacs are Innocent: Rin's innocent and simple-minded behavior and lack of memories cause Vincent to act as Rin's guardian initially.
  • Angelic Aliens: In the True/Good Ending, at the Stray Sheep, Rin reveals that he belongs to a race which are considered "angels" in Vincent's world.
  • Bury Your Gays: Briefly. In Full Body, in Rin's route, Rin gets killed by a jealous Catherine in Vincent's dream. Rin gets better though due to being an extraterrestrial with a healing factor.
  • Character Title: Reversing the dialogue when he mentions his real name will give you "Qatherine Fullbody."
  • Damsel in Distress: When Rin and Vincent first meet, Rin is running from a mysterious pursuer. Later in Rin's route, he's kidnapped by the Big Bad for interfering with the "curse".
  • Diegetic Switch: Rin's the one playing the piano piece that serves as the theme of the Stray Sheep bar, "Also Sprach Brooks", in the updated re-release.
  • Discount Lesbians: He's a feminine, crossdressing member of a pink alien race.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: And sounds like one, too. Combined with his petite stature and dainty mannerisms, it's almost impossible to tell he's a boy, even when he's not wearing a cute dress.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • In a conversation, Rin reveals he has LGBT-friendly views, saying if people are in love, he doesn’t see why their sex should not matter because love is love.
    • When asked by Jonny Ariga about love between a human and non-human, Rin says species should not matter either. Both of these instances hint towards Rin's relationship with Vincent, and how Rin is the same sex as Vincent, as well as Rin being of alien origin.
  • Freudian Trio: The Ego of the three love interests as of Full Body.
  • Gay Option: He's a young man that Vincent can romance in the Updated Re-release.
  • Happily Married: in Rin's True Ending, Vincent and Rin will marry in the Stray Sheep with Vincent's friends - and Katherine - at their side.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Has blue eyes and is kind and naive.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Rin also doesn’t seem to view sexuality as something embarrassing or perhaps is nescient about it; when Rin accidentally exposes himself in front of Vincent, he displays no shame and does not try to cover his body.
  • In-Series Nickname: Commonly goes by "Rin", as opposed to Qatherine. Or even worse, @+*+?&$.
  • The Klutz: Is described to 'lack social etiquette'. Rin is shown to be somewhat clumsy, creating embarrassing situations. Rin also has some unusual behavior and lacks social etiquette skills.
  • Leaving You to Find Myself: The non-True ending with Rin has him leave Vincent a few weeks after being rescued from Thomas Mutton's engineered nightmare (and his brother doesn't get involved at all). He decides to go help others with his power, but it's made clear that he plans to return to Vincent eventually. Though as one of the End Credits pictures shows, Vincent eventually goes after Rin.
  • Literally Loving Thy Neighbor: Rin's new apartment is right next door to Vincent's.
  • Lonely Piano Piece: The default song Rin plays is the quiet, slightly sorrowful solo piano piece "Also Sprach Brooks" that you can hear when you're hanging out at the bar.
  • Love Interests: Rin's one of the possible three love interests Vincent can end up in a relationship within Full Body.
  • Magical Girlfriend: Fits the mold almost painfully straightforwardly, but still bucks tradition by the fact that Rin's route is at odds with Vincent currently being in a relationship with Katherine. Ends up being a Gender-Inverted Trope when Rin is revealed to be a young man.
  • Mark Of The Supernatural: Has bubblegum pink hair, unlike most of the cast, whose hair colors are more natural. It's not dyed. He's a member of an alien race whose skin is bubblegum pink.
  • No Social Skills: Described as "lacking proper social etiquette". Justified since he comes from a race of Aliens and is an amnesiac.
  • Older than They Look: Despite apparently being around the same age as the rest of the cast (to the point Rin was hired to work at a bar), Rin has a small build, pink hair, and purposefully wears clothes that resemble a Japanese high school Sailor Fuku.
  • The Piano Player: Was hired by Boss to play the piano at the Stray Sheep Bar.
  • Red Herring: Is tied with a lot of angelic motifs and imagery but is actually an alien who has a form that superficially resembles an angel.
  • Sailor Fuku: Rin's one piece dress evokes this, with a short cut and a sailor sash top.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Rin's true name is revealed right before the final battle to be Ydoblluf Enirehtaq, or by reversing the audio, Qatherine Fullbody.
  • Speculative Fiction LGBT: Rin's a shapeshifted alien, and also a pretty young man who Vincent mistakes for a girl.
  • Thinking Up Portals: Rin's race has the ability to create portals to teleport.
  • Third-Option Love Interest: Rin is newly introduced in the PS4 and Vita Updated Re-release as a third option between Catherine and Katherine.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Downplayed. Rin won't come back after Day 6 if Vincent pursues one of the other love interests.
  • The Unpronounceable: There is no language that comes close to pronouncing Rin's true name correctly. In the subtitles, it's spelled as @+*+?&$, and even then the spoken version sounds like a word said backwards.
  • Unsettling Gender-Reveal: Is revealed to be a boy on Day 6, sending Vincent briefly into denial.
  • Version-Exclusive Content: Rin only appears in the PS4 and Vita Catherine: Full Body Updated Re-release, not the original PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Rin is a friendly and supportive male crossdresser/otokonoko trying to save people from the nightmares and also serves as one of Vincent's love interests.


Vincent's Friends


Orlando Haddick

Voice Actors: Hiroaki Hirata (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN)
Orlando is one of Vincent's oldest friends and another frequenter of the Stray Sheep bar. He tends to lean towards freedom in everything he does and isn't particularly keen on the idea of marriage.
  • All Men Are Perverts:
    • His immediate reaction to Vincent's ramblings about whether or not he should call the affair with Catherine off and apologize to Katherine can basically be summed up as, "Great — Hook me up with her instead."
    • When Vincent starts telling him about the pics that Catherine is sending him, he demands that he save those pics so he can see them later.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Notably while talking to Vincent in the cubicles.
  • Stepford Smiler: It's implied that his laid-back attitude and preference for the bachelor lifestyle is a front for how bitter he's been since his wife left him.


Jonathan "Jonny" Ariga

Voice Actors: Takehito Koyasu (JP), Travis Willingham (EN)
Jonny is another bachelor friend of Vincent's who frequents the bar. A used car salesman who works for his father's company and plans to continue the family business. He tends to lean towards the "order" side of things and has a yearning to find his own soulmate some day.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: If Vincent breaks up with Katherine, he reveals that he's had feelings for her for years. Katherine does not return his feelings.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Toby.
  • Black-and-White Morality: He demonstrates his thinking this way as early as Day 1 when discussing finding a soulmate and marriage.
    Vincent: "What if you never meet your, "soulmate?"
    Jonny: "Then I'll never get married."
  • The Bro Code: He'll break it if Vincent breaks up with Katherine for good, but is turned down by her.
  • Foil: Given his similar appearance, his leaning towards order, and eventual asking of Katherine out, he's essentially what Vincent could become if he actually made up his mind for once.
  • Hidden Depths: He presents himself as rather aloof and casual, but he clearly values hard work and taking responsibility as shown by his and Toby's interactions when discussing work at the bar, and he is FAR more positive thinking, and believes in finding your one true love.
  • In-Series Nickname: Toby frequently calls him "Chief".
  • Interspecies Romance: In Rin's route Jonny ends up falling for a half pink alien woman.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: On the 7th Day in Fullbody, after Vincent's possible final phone call with Rin, as Vincent goes on about Rin, Jonny is shown to be slowly becoming agitated, and keeping a straight face, angrily slams down his sake cup at one point and slowly clenches his fist. This anger cultivates if Vincent decides to pursue a relationship with Rin, and the normally quiet and reserved Jonny suddenly punches him without any warning and knocks Vincent to the ground; EVERYONE is shocked at him doing this!
    • This also comes into play for Lindsey and Martha, who both cover their mouths in response.
    Orlando(wide-eyed): "The fuck, Jonny?"
  • One True Love: Is currently looking for one.
  • The Quiet One: The least talkative of Vincent's friends.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni, mostly towards Toby. He tends to be calm, level-headed, and clad in duller clothing to represent his leaning towards stability as opposed to Toby's instability.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He's often seen smoking a cigarette, and even appears as the "Smoking Sheep" in the nightmares.
  • The Spock: Not as deliberate as other examples, but in comparison to the rest of Vincent's friends, he shows very little emotion and is also the first one to offer Vincent more logical responses to his dilemma early on such as suggesting that he (Vincent) and Katherine break up with each other if things aren't going well.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Jonny shows in Fullbody that he is NOT one to be messed with as, when pursuing Rin's route, he is able to send Vincent flying out of his seat and onto the floor with ONE PUNCH!
  • Token Minority: With the last name Ariga, this makes him the only person of Asian heritage in Vincent's group, let alone the entire game.
  • Tranquil Fury: After Vincent's phone call with Rin on Day 7, Vincent starts to go on about Rin and Jonny is VERY clearly frustrated, and violently slams down his sake cup at one point, but he keeps his cool while he and Vincent and Orlando keep talking.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He isn't very fond of Vincent apparently cheating on Katherine, but that's about as far as it goes. However, when Vincent admits he may end up actually loving Rin...
    Jonny: (slugs Vincent in the face) "Sorry. That just pissed me off."
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: He is a downplayed example when compared to Toby, but he clearly believes in true love just as much and is determined to find a soulmate while his friends are either dragging their feet (Vincent), or are more interested in excitement and having multiple relationships (Orlando).


Tobias "Toby" Nebbins

Voice Actors: Kissho Taniyama (JP), Yuri Lowenthal (EN)
One of Jonny's workmates, Toby is the youngest member of the group and another regular at the bar. He looks up to his coworker and has a similar desire to find "the one" and get married. He's also quite the cake eater and has a huge crush on Erica.
  • All Men Are Perverts: He talks constantly about wanting to have fun with women.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's always picked on by his buddies, usually for being the youngest, for being a virgin, or for his shyness towards Erica.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He's quite clearly a good guy at heart, although he's definitely one of the more perverted of them, proudly announcing his preference for older women and asking "What's so wrong with having some adult fun with someone older?"
  • Heroes Want Redheads: He has quite the crush on Erica.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: He's the youngest of the group by almost a decade.
  • Likes Older Women: Rather unashamedly, too.
  • Naïve Newcomer: He's much younger and less experienced than the rest of the group.
  • Never Bareheaded: He wears a beanie all the time.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Jonny's Blue. He's a loud, active, bright-colour wearing Foil to Johnny's stoicism.
  • Trans Relationship Troubles: In one of the Katherine/Catherine/Rin relationship arcs in Full Body, Toby reminds Erica he likes girls, disregarding Erica's identity entirely. However, when Vincent romantically pursues Rin, it's revealed that Toby and Erica are still seeing each other despite her transgender revelation.


Erica Anderson

Voice Actors: Junko Minagawa (JP), Erin Fitzgerald (EN)
A waitress at the Stray Sheep bar and a childhood friend of Vincent's. She is bright, cheerful, and a little bit of a gossiper. She seems well aware of Tobias' crush on her and it's hinted that she reciprocates it on some level.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: A mild example, but her eyebrows are slightly thicker compared to other characters.
  • The Chick: A moral centre for The Team who tries to stop them getting depressed? Check. Mediates arguments and ensures that nobody falls out? Check. Encourages everyone to keep moving forward? Cheque, please!
  • Fanservice with a Smile: Her waitress outfit shows off quite a bit of leg and the camera occasionally angles itself so you can see down her top.
  • Fiery Redhead: Erica is a natural redhead and is very outspoken about topics.
  • Fish out of Water: A small example: out of Vincent's friends, she is the only one to at least get a feel of what's going on concerning the murders and Vincent's nightmare — which happened to be Boss's about Catherine and why no one else but Vincent couldn't see her.
  • Foreshadowing: The gang drops quite a few hints that she's transgender that Toby and many first-time players probably won't notice.
  • Red Herring: She fits a lot of the same criteria the mastermind behind the nightmares does (knows Vincent and has been close to him for a while), and see Significant Double Casting below. There are also hints that she's the "witch" that's been cursing people. It turns out she is the witch, but that has nothing to do with the nightmares: it was just an old childhood prank.
  • Significant Double Casting: Averted in both the Japanese and English dub in regards to Trisha. The only thing they share is a rather similar appearance.
  • Sobriquet Sex Switch: She used to be called "Eric".
  • The Tease: Especially so far as Toby is concerned.
  • Trans Relationship Troubles: In one of the Katherine/Catherine/Rin relationship arcs in Full Body, Toby quit sleeping with her because he couldn't handle the fact that she was not only transgender but also "Eric back in high school". She is also reminded by Toby that he likes girls, disregarding Erica's identity as a woman completely. However, when Vincent romantically pursues Rin, it's revealed that Toby and Erica are still seeing each other despite her transgender revelation.
  • Unsettling Gender-Reveal: Treated as such in-game. In the ending where Vincent and Katherine get married, Toby discovers that she used to be known as "Eric" back in high school and claims that he "wants his v-card back".
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She's not happy when Vincent reacts badly to learning Rin is a cross-dresser and demands he call and apologize to him.

Stray Sheep Characters



Voice Actors: Norio Wakamoto (JP), Kirk Thornton (EN)
The Boss is the barkeeper of the Stray Sheep bar, who always wears sunglasses indoors. Very little is known about him, although there are plenty of weird rumors surrounding him.
  • Batman Gambit: Vincent basically undermines his illusion of control when he takes the whole plan apart by saying men and women don't need guidance and there's no way their lives can be so easily controlled.
  • Big Bad: The one responsible for creating the Nightmares, for the purpose of weeding out men who either cheat on their partners or won't commit themselves to marriage.
  • Calling Your Attacks: DUMUZID BEAM! Head goes BOOM!!
  • Cool Shades: Turns out they're to hide his Glowing Eyes of Doom.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Was once a normal man who managed to complete all of the trials, and in return Ishtar elevated him to godhood and a place as her consort. However, he fell out of favor with her once she discovers his womanizing.
  • Dirty Old Man: Erica complains that he's not going to stop hitting on her.
  • Dub Name Change: From "Master" in the Japanese version to "Boss". Done as you traditionally call the Barkeep in Japan "Master" out of respect, and calling him "Boss" is just a translation of how respectfully you're supposed to address them in Japan.
  • Easily Forgiven: Vincent doesn't hold it against Boss that he's canonically killed at least three men for petty, borderline Serial Killer reasons. In one ending Boss even gets to design Vincent and Katherine's wedding cake.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: When Vincent comes to him with questions about Catherine, he makes the mistake of assuming he's figured out that he was behind the Nightmares and blurts out too much before answering his question. This leads to Vincent finding that out as well.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The Japanese language track calls him Master, the traditional way of addressing the barkeep in Japan as he's the master of the bar you're in. The English dub changed it to Boss, but the meaning behind it is the same. So at the end of the day, he's still being called Barkeep.
  • Final Boss: Of the game.
  • Friendly Enemy: He's only antagonistic when directly challenged. Even after being defeated, he doesn't seem to hold a grudge against Vincent.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Turns out that these are what his sunglasses are hiding.
  • Heteronormative Crusader: In Rin's route in Full Body, when Vincent finally reunites with Rin at the end of the Empireo, Dumuzid is hugely disapproving, scolding the pair for denying "the natural order of things". Which, considering his goals as listed under Well-Intentioned Extremist, makes some degree of sense. Vincent tells him where to stick his attitude.
  • Humanoid Abomination: In the final battle, he transforms into a deity/monster.
  • Hypocrite: He claims to do what he does to weed out cheaters, but Ishtar is doing these trials to find a replacement consort, as he's been cheating incessantly on her.
  • Inhuman Eye Concealers: Wears sunglasses to hide his unusual red eyes.
  • Irony: He uses the Nightmares to weed out cheaters and unwilling men, even though he's a cheater himself.
  • Large Ham: He doesn't half-ass the banter when he's the Final Boss.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • The "Mutton" connects him with the dream-sheep. The "Thomas" is probably on account of an old rendering of Dumuzid's name in Mesopotamian archaeology — Tammuz.
    • Boss is a boss, the Final Boss.
  • Monster Roommate: In the True Cheater ending, he rooms with Vincent and Catherine until Vincent goes on his conquest of the netherworld.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He kinda looks like Stan Lee.
  • Not So Omniscient After All: Vincent calls him out on this after the final battle.
  • One-Winged Angel: You have to face him twice to finish the game. His final form claims that he was only going easy on you in the beginning, and going by the difficulty of the final stage, he has a point.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: In Rin's route, he outright calls the relationship between Vincent and Rin unnatural, as it goes against his belief that relationships should facilitate the continued population of the planet.
  • The Reveal: He turns out to be the mastermind behind the Nightmares and is trying to use them to weed out men who won't marry their partners for the sake of allowing the human race to keep populating the world, as per the will of Astaroth/Ishtar.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: His weapon of choice when you face him in the penultimate level.
  • Satanic Archetype: Boss punishes men for their sins, his challenge is all about escaping his gloomy realm below to the holy area above while learning repentance, and his red eyes with the weird pupils bring to mind the Gruesome Goat imagery often associated with Satan.
  • Saying Too Much: When Vincent confronts him about Catherine, he wastes no time in blurting out that he's the mastermind behind the whole nightmare tower situation, a conclusion Vincent had never even considered, when all he asked for was proof of Catherine's existence. Uh... whoops?
    • In the Rin Route, as Vincent had already pieced together that he was responsible for Rin's disappearance, he instead tries to bargain with Vincent while Vincent is interrogating him by promising to make Vincent's nightmares go away, only to realize that Vincent didn't piece together that he was also behind his nightmares. Again, whoops.
  • Seen It All: In Catherine's True Ending, Nergal, a giant screaming demon, teleports straight into the Stray Sheep. Boss gives him a disinterested look and returns to cleaning glasses.
  • Service Sector Stereotypes: A plot-significant barkeeper? Myep.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Mostly played for laughs. There are quite a few wacky rumours about the Boss.
  • Stupid Evil: Boss believes the human population is too low, so he set up the Nightmares to encourage marriage. But he kills men even though that decreases the population, and specifically targets womanizers, who would presumably be more inclined to unintentionally increase the population.
  • Sunglasses at Night: He wears his shades while he's sleeping, even after his secret is revealed.
  • Walking Spoiler: Much like Catherine, there's very few tropes in his folder without a spoiler tag.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Turns out all he really wanted was for men and women to "continue populating the planet" and he intended to weed out cheaters in order to assist with that.


Justin Bailey

Voice Actors: Shinya Fukumatsu (JP), Doug Erholtz (EN)

One of the regulars at the Stray Sheep. He's a reporter, and is studying the mysterious deaths of young men in their sleep. During the Nightmare stages, he appears as the Sheep with Glasses, teaching climbing techniques that Vincent may find useful.

  • But You Were There, and You, and You: Eventually, he recognizes Vincent from the bar during the Nightmare.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: He's baffled as to why he's having nightmares, given that rumor has it they're caused by cheating and he's never cheated on anyone in his life. It turns out he qualifies for them simply because his guilt complex has him stalling on getting engaged to his girlfriend.
  • Justified Tutorial: His climbing technique discussions are in order to help everyone involved escape from the Nightmares.
  • My Greatest Failure: Justin once wrote an article about an impoverished ballerina who was looking for her big break. After the story was published, she became famous, but was tormented by rivals and ended up committing suicide after her family was murdered. He thinks the nightmares are punishing him for this, and plans on wishing the ballerina back to life if he reaches the Cathedral and the ballerina is the nightmare he faces each night.
  • Shout-Out: To the Classic Cheat Code of Metroid.
  • The Smart Guy: The main Climbing Techniques Guy of the nightmare group, and likes sprinkling conversations with trivia and food for thought.


Todd Bozeman

Voice Actors: Kenji Hamada (JP), Andrew Bowen (EN)

A businessman that frequents the Stray Sheep. He appears in the Nightmare as the Sheep with Regent Hair.

  • Abusive Parents: His father constantly insulted, belittled, or neglected him, and even attacked him with an axe at one point, leaving scars on Todd's body.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Todd takes this attitude in stride, thinking it makes him a successful man, like his father.
  • Animal Stereotypes: He works for a company called "Bantam Suits", and his pompadour gets compared to a rooster comb by Archie.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Seems to think of himself as this toward Archie, most overt if he survives to Day 7. This flusters Archie, who isn't sure he even likes Todd.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Surviving the Nightmare helps him get better, though.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Unless he's a sheep.
  • Foil: Todd is basically a more successful, yet less-committed Vincent.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's chauvanistic and a bit of an ass, but at least one of the other characters admits he's "good at looking out for people". Despite not getting along with Morgan, he stopped the latter's suicide attempt.
  • Those Two Guys: Normally appears with Archie, both in the bar and on the Nightmare landings. If one dies in the Nightmares, the other will also be unsaveable.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: He's desperate to become successful like his father. Unfortunately, that means being a womanizing, manipulative jerk.
  • Woman Scorned: He thinks the "witch" is one of his ex-girlfriends, who he dumped to avoid getting caught in a baby trap.


Archie Wallace

Voice Actors: Tarisuke Shingaki (JP), Johnny Yong Bosch (EN)

Todd's employee, often seen with him at the Stray Sheep. In the Nightmare stages, he's the Long-Haired Sheep.

  • Abusive Parents: Archie was locked in a cellar and raped by his mother as a child. Although he eventually escaped, it understandably left him with serious issues.
  • Armor-Piercing Response: Vincent can give him one after he admits to his Freudian Excuse and Death Seeker tendencies. When he finally admits that he just wants to have a normal life
    Vincent: See? You want to live.
    Archie:... I'll climb. I'll climb... like there's no tomorrow.
  • Death Seeker: Due to a combination of guilt and burnout over his lifestyle. He sees himself as a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, and he feels like he's constantly on the run thanks to his background.
  • The Eeyore: He's on the pessimistic, down-on-himself side, though he starts getting over it if he makes it past Night 6.
  • Gold Digger: A male version. Archie seduces rich women, then makes off with as much money as he can.
  • I Wished You Were Dead: His reaction if Todd dies in the Nightmare.
  • Nervous Wreck: Understated. He's pretty level, if dry, in his appearances with Todd early in the game, but talk to him alone during the second half and it's obvious that the week's getting to him.
  • Straight Man: Plays off of Todd this way when they're together in Stray Sheep sections.
  • Those Two Guys: He usually appears with Todd, both in and out of the Nightmare sequences. If Todd doesn't last to the final day, neither will he.


Daniel Kirsch

Voice Actors: Atsushi Imaruoka (JP), Ari Rubin (EN)

One of Vincent's old classmates, and the heir to a huge corporation. He's seen as the Sheep with Sunglasses in Nightmares.

  • Arranged Marriage: His parents force one onto him, to get him to break up with his poor girlfriend.
  • Creepy Doll: Daniel's Nightmare monster is one of these, modeled after himself. It doesn't even chase after him. It represents how he feels he's being forced into the life his adoptive parents want for him, instead of the life he wants for himself.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Averted.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Daniel envies Vincent's carefree life. It's a small case; bonus for actually having green eyes, too.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Tired of doing everything he does for the sake of meeting a standard.
    Daniel: I don't want "true freedom". I want normal freedom that everyone else has!
  • Starcrossed Lovers: He's been dating Anna, but his parents won't accept someone of her financial status for a daughter-in-law. If he survives the Nightmare, they end up eloping.
  • Unknown Rival: He claims to have spent life since graduating from high school trying to be more successful than Vincent. Vincent, for his part, barely even remembers him.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: His adoptive parents have very high standards which Daniel feels he can never live up to.


Morgan Cortez

Voice Actors: Naomi Kusumi (JP), Richard Epcar (EN)

A widowed police officer who can be found at the Stray Sheep. Also known as the Sheep with Police Hat.


Anna Rosmont

Voice Actors: Mari Maeda (JP), Kirsten Potter (EN)

Daniel's girlfriend, who occasionally accompanies him to the Stray Sheep.

  • Samaritan Relationship Starter: Anna was devastated by the suicide of her friend the ballerina, but Daniel comforted her and got her life back on track. Shortly afterwards, they started dating.
  • Starcrossed Lovers: Daniel's family doesn't approve of her economic status.
  • Tsundere: Type B.

    Lindsay and Martha 

Lindsay and Martha Uspenski

Voice Actors: Saori Seto (Lindsay, JP), Kyoko Hikami (Martha, JP), Valerie Arem (both, EN)

A pair of old women who seem to know about the Nightmare world.

  • Creepy Twins: They speak their more ominous lines in unison, and it's implied that they're not entirely human.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: They don't mind sharing beer and pizza with Vincent while sorting out your Karma Meter.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Morgan. In fact, they both have a crush on him, too.
  • Mythology Gag: Silver hair, blue/purple outfits, helps the protagonist through his mystically-charged, self-reflective adventure. Does this sound vaguely familiar to anyone else?
  • Really 700 Years Old: Maybe. They talk as if they've been around for several of the previous nightmare cycles, which happen in intervals of 100 years.
  • Seers: The two reveal themselves to be able to see visions of the future in Full Body, which is why they have insight into things others don't.
  • Single-Minded Twins: Two identical twin sisters who regularly finish each other's sentences and even speak in unison.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We never really find out what their deal is in the original.


    In General 
"The (boss name) has appeared. It's the killer. Do not die."

  • Always Chaotic Evil: Each boss (except for the last one) are nightmare creatures created from Vincent's fears and insecurities. They can't be reasoned with, never slow down in their pursuit, and don't stop until either they die or manage to kill Vincent. They exist only to punish him for his actions.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: They're all gigantic compared to the player.
  • Ax-Crazy: All of them, to different extents. We have a pair of hands armed with a giant fork that threatens to stab Vincent, a Creepy Child (armed with a chainsaw during the second encounter), a literal Bridezilla Ice Queen, and more.
  • Boss Warning Siren: After an introduction cutscene, the title of the boss is announced.
  • Mirror Scare: Washing your face in the bathroom of the Stray Sheep will show a brief flash of that night's boss in the mirror.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: As previously stated, a boss will only end its relentless pursuit if it either dies or accomplishes its goal.
  • Voice of the Legion: Every boss monster has a demonic, distorted voice, although some are more noticable than others. It's more prominent in the Japanese version.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: Most of them say some variation of this to Vincent mid-chase.

    Fist of Grudge
"Take responsibility!"

The first boss Vincent goes up against at the end of the Prison of Despair, the Fist of Grudge is a pair of twisted female arms with silver hair wrapped around each one, cracked blue nails, and wielding a giant bloodstained dessert fork as a weapon. She represents Vincent's fear of committing to Katherine and losing his personal freedom, which is echoed in her lines that focus on entrapment.

  • Creepily Long Arms: Although it's hard to gauge how long they are compared to the rest of her body, since we don't see it. It's likely that there is no body at all and the arms are the entity itself.
  • Creepy Long Fingers: Goes hand in hand with the above.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Makes a brief appearance in the ending cutscene of the Underground Cemetery before being properly introduced in the next level.
  • Improbable Weapon User: A dessert fork is a pretty strange, yet effective, stabbing tool.
  • Starter Villain: The first of Vincent's fears that he faces in the Nightmare, and the simplest one to escape.
  • Wild Hair: Whatever glimpse of her body we do get is just a shadowy mess of hair.

    Immoral Beast
"Please... give me more!"

The boss of the Torture Chamber, the Immoral Beast takes the form of a grotesque mishmash of four limbs, facial features, a large mouth with sharp teeth and elongated tongue, and presumably buttocks, altogether vaguely resembling the shape of a heart. An overtly sexualized creature with a female face (that has Catherine's blue eyes), this boss represents the affair that Vincent commits the night before with Catherine, as well as his feelings of guilt over it.

  • Body Horror: It's a giant butt with four limbs, eyes on its ass-cheeks and a mouth where its butthole should be.
  • Death from Above: Its only attack, aside from lashing its tongue, is spraying hearts out of its mouth that rain down on Vincent soon after. They don't hurt him, but they do invert the controls for a while.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Or maybe they do. This thing doesn't exactly have a proper face.
  • Fan Disservice: A nude female torso would normally be pleasant to look at. Not this thing...
  • Heart Beat-Down: The aforementioned rain of hearts.
  • The Immodest Orgasm: A lot of the beast's vocalizations are unprompted sexual moans, and they only serve to make the creature even more unsettling.
  • Interface Screw: The reverse controls it can cause.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Has a sharp set of chompers.
  • Odd Organ Up Top: Zigzagged. It's a creature that crawls on its four weirdly angled limbs like a crab and has its conjoined buttocks as its head. It has an eye on each cheek, while the rest of its deformed facial features are on its "upper back," and a "mouth" with an Overly-Long Tongue sticking out.

    The Child
"Don't leave me! Da-daddy!"

The boss of the Inquisition, The Child is an undead baby symbolizing Vincent's fear of having a child of his own (due to the fact that he's seriously not ready to be a father yet), which is raised when Katherine tells him the day before that she may be pregnant. To Vincent, this Child exists to crush his freedom and life, chaining him to something he isn't ready for yet.

    Doom's Bride
"Apologize to me!"

The boss of the Quadrangle and the second time Katherine appears in the Nightmares as one of Vincent's fears, Doom's Bride is a nude, emaciated, demonic version of Katherine wearing a wedding veil and wielding a cake knife. She represents the absolute certainty of marriage that Vincent is facing, feeling that all of his freedom has escaped, and that he has no choice but to marry the woman who is carrying his child. This monster also seems to be aware of the fact that Vincent is cheating, and verbally torments him over it. Thus, this monster also represents his fear of Katherine discovering the affair.

  • Big "NO!": Screams this upon being defeated.
  • Blow You Away: Summons up a giant whirlwind that surrounds the tower towards the end of the fight.
  • Breath Weapon: Her ice attack.
  • Bridezilla: A very literal example. She's a giant, scornful nightmare projection of Katherine on her coming wedding day, out to kill Vincent for his infidelity.
  • Evil Laugh: She lets out quite a few of these, especially in her introduction and ending.
  • An Ice Person: She can shoot ice out of her mouth and rain it down from the sky, causing Vincent to slip off the tower.
  • Psycho Knife Nut: She's a giant imaginary version of Katherine who's been driven insane by Vincent's infidelity, and tries to kill him with a cake knife.
  • Woman Scorned: Doom's Bride attacks Vincent for a multitude of reasons, his cheating being a major one.

    Child With a Chainsaw
"Plaaaaay wiiith meeeeee!!!"

The boss of the Clock Tower, The Child returns to Vincent's fears with disturbing modifications: a chainsaw for an arm, a pincer for the other arm, and a gatling gun in its mouth. The symbolism of the baby on the outside mixed with the grotesque inhuman construction lurking underneath represents Vincent's fear that the child Katherine is carrying may belong to another man, Steve Delhomme.

  • Artificial Limbs: A chainsaw for one arm, and a robotic claw for another.
  • Boss Arena Urgency: It will regularly saw off two columns from the stage, reducing the maneuvering space you have. If you spend enough time on the stage, you can have as little as two columns by the time you reach the goal.
  • Came Back Strong: When The Child is defeated for the first time, it can be seen falling down the tower rather than getting vaporized. It returns later in this form, and it is out for blood.
  • Chainsaw Good: Its right arm and main weapon of choice. There are more blades in its left eye, and can summon automated saws to roll around the tower and attack Vincent.
  • Creepy Child: Taken further compared to the regular version.
  • Cyborg: A baby cyborg with robotic claws, a chainsaw (natch) and a mounted gun in its mouth.
  • Enfant Terrible: Just like before, except much worse this time around.
  • Evil Laugh: Occasionally cackles at the havoc it's causing..
  • Facial Horror: The normal baby face is just an outer shell that can open up. What lies underneath is not pretty...
  • Gatling Good: A minigun is stored inside of its mouth.
  • Power Pincers: Its left arm.
  • Tears of Blood: Appears to have a tear blood stain going down the left side of its face.
  • Too Many Mouths: Under the metal plating on the right side of its face, it's revealed to have a gnashing mouth in its eye socket.

    Shadow of Vincent
"There's no point in repenting now!"

The boss of the Spiral Corridor. A giant version of Vincent Brooks clad completely in shadow, wearing a gleaming white mask that covers its entire face in a twisted smile. Only his yellow left eye is visible in the beginning. The Shadow of Vincent is the culmination of everything that Vincent is feeling, but is completely ashamed of: his obsession with not being tied down, even at the expense of the most important person in his life, of not taking responsibility for anything in his life, and of cheating. Though he is able to hide his feelings behind a mask, the higher he climbs, the more the mask breaks away.

  • Casting a Shadow: A being made of shadow that shrouds the Spiral Corridor in darkness towards the end of his boss encounter.
  • Enemy Within: To Vincent.
  • Evil Laugh: Does this during his introduction as well as a few times in the ensuing battle.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His voice is much, much deeper than regular Vincent's.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Politely greets Vincent when they first meet, although it's clearly not genuine considering he immediately starts trying to kill the guy afterward.
    Shadow of Vincent: Vincent Brooks... How are you feeling?
    Vincent: Who's there?
    Shadow of Vincent: Who, you ask...? Someone you know all too well. Hahahaha!
  • I am a Humanitarian: Poor, poor Steve...
  • Mask of Sanity: Unlike the other monsters, this one starts off eerily calm. However, over the course of the chase, he continues to fail at killing Vincent, and the mask literally breaks apart as he's reduced to roaring and grunting at the end of the night.
  • Power Floats: One of two bosses that flies around the tower instead of climbing it.
  • Precision F-Strike: Notably the only boss to drop an F-Bomb on you.
    "Fucking liar."
  • Shadow Archetype: Of Vincent (literally).
  • Slasher Smile: After eating Steve, Vincent's Shadow rises up to meet Vincent himself. After a brief pause, he flashes one of these. It's enough to make Vincent rush through the exit door in terror.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Only one is visible while he's wearing the mask, though.
  • Use Your Head: The first attack he ever does? Headbutting a bunch of blocks off the tower!
  • White Mask of Doom: He wears a white mask with a creepy grin that breaks away later on. Its supernatural glow also becomes the only source of light when he turns out the lights.

    The Succubus (UNMARKED SPOILERS) 


The boss of the Cathedral, and the second time Catherine appears as a boss. A desiccated corpse version of Catherine, she represents the final remnants of Vincent's affair getting in the way of his relationship with Katherine. To Katherine, she represents a rival to Vincent's affections, trying to pull him away from her.

For tropes regarding her, see her entry in The Catherines.


Boss / Thomas Mutton / Dumuzid
"I swear on the name of Dumuzid, the Shepherd, consort of Ishtar! Your ass is mine, punk! Prepare yourself!"

For tropes regarding him, see his entry in Stray Sheep Characters.

    Archangel (UNMARKED SPOILERS) 
"Sinner... Prepare to face our judgement."
A seemingly divine being that is the big brother of Rin. Despite what it may seem though, they are not an actual archangel. They are in fact, a group of pink, diminutive aliens.
  • Angelic Aliens: Their true form. The "Archangel" form was just a suit, and both humanity and the gods have viewed them as angels.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: He is violently protective of Rin, or rather all of them are this towards their youngest brother that they smother with love. To the point they were willing to cause the Earth to blow up than let their brother enter a relationship with Vincent if he didn’t challenge them.
  • The Dreaded: Angels are terrifying enough to make Thomas Mutton/Dumuzid hide in sheer, utter terror from them, with even the demons of hell fearing them, despite them just being advanced alien lifeforms.
  • Red Herring: It seems that Archangel is an angel, and so is Rin. They're not supernatural angels, they're aliens that act as angels. Archangel also calls Rin "Angel" as a nickname.
  • Royal "We": He talks about himself using we. This is revealed to be because there's numerous aliens in the suit.


    Midnight Venus 

Trisha, the Midnight Venus

Voice Actors: Junko Minagawa (JP), Erin Fitzgerald (EN)
The hostess of the Golden Playhouse, the Framing Device for our story. She provides opening and ending narration to the events of the story.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: If you beat the Babel stages, she completely gets what she wants, a new lover to replace Boss.
  • Dub Name Change: Originally Ishida Ruu in the Japanese version.
  • Everything's Better with Sparkles: Her afro is always glittering with golden sparkles.
  • Fiery Redhead: A red-haired woman who wants to find a mam to prove his bravery by conquering the deadly Nightmare and is also the Mesopotamian goddess of love and war.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: She knows she's in a video game and outright talks to the player. In Full Body, she outright refers to Joker as the protagonist and says that toying with his life may have serious repercussions.
  • Godiva Hair: When she greets you in the ninth ending after clearing the Axis Mundi, her hair is let down to give this impression. While her nipples aren't actually exposed, she poses to reveal the sides of her breasts, giving off this impression.
  • I Have Many Names: She goes not only by Trisha and the Midnight Venus, but also Astaroth and Ishtar. Further, as an ancient Mesopotamian deity, she has a large number of other names and equivalents across various cultures, including Inanna, Anunit, Astarte, Atarsamain, Esher, Astoreth, Ashtaroth, Astarot, Aphrodite, and Venus.
  • It's All About Me: The reason why the Nightmares were created? She wants to kill and replace Boss, who had been cheating on her constantly (as implied by the Rapunzel mini-game), not caring if this may of may not kill a lot of punished men along the way.
  • Letting Her Hair Down: A variation. Her ridiculously huge afro makes her seem more comical than attractive for most of the story, only for her to let her locks down into a more traditional straightened hairstyle when she comes to confess to the player at the end of the Tower of Babel mode.
  • Louis Cypher: Trisha is an anagram of her Mesopotamian name, Ishtar.
  • Luminescent Blush: A line of bright red appears on her cheeks and the bridge of her nose when she gets embarrassed, such as when she confesses to you, the player, if you beat the Tower of Babel.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Was behind the entire scheme, not to weed out unworthy bad men as Thomas Mutton said, but to find a replacement for her current lover, Thomas Mutton/Boss/Dumuzid himself.
  • Ms. Exposition: She tells you who Vincent is and gives you hints through text messages about what to do throughout the game.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Not in the main game (Navel-Deep Neckline aside), but after you complete Axis Mundi, there's a scene where she flat-out seduces you through the fourth wall. Makes sense, given how she's a Love Goddess.
  • Mythology Gag: Astaroth is the demonized version of Ishtar in the Shin Megami Tensei series, which was also made by Atlus.
  • Navel-Deep Neckline: In most of her outfits, the collar of her jacket goes way down past her breasts.
  • Physical God: The Mesopotamian goddess of love and war.
  • Secret Test of Character: The Nightmares. It wasn't to weed out unworthy bad men; the real intent was to test their character and see if they can prove theirselves worthy of her affections. This is also why she keeps asking Vincent various questions regarding relationships at the confessionals as Astaroth. She's trying to see if her and Vincent would be a good fit.
  • Significant Anagram:
    • Rearrange "Trisha" and you get "Ishtar"; her true identity.
    • The original Japanese version of the game does something similar. When read in the Japanese naming order, "Ishida Ruu" winds up sounding similar to イシュタル (Ishutaru); Ishtar's name when rendered in katakana.
  • Significant Double Casting: In the Japanese dub at least, she shares a voice actor with her male avatar, Astaroth.


Paul Miller

A former classmate of Vincent's, and one of the first men claimed by the curse.

    Merchant Sheep 

Merchant Sheep

A sheep who appears on the Landings, selling useful items in exchange for Enigma Coins, which can be collected during stages or awarded at their end. Their primary purpose is as a scoring mechanic, but the Merchant Sheep believes that if he can collect enough, he can use them to buy his freedom.

  • Anti-Frustration Features: If you just can't get through a level, the Merchant Sheep's wares can give you a leg up. It'll hurt your score, but that's better than losing.
  • Death by Materialism: He eventually doesn't make it to the landings. In his place, you can see a sheep who tells you that the Merchant Sheep died when his bag of coins got too heavy for him to continue climbing.
  • Fat Bastard: Downplayed, but he can get insulting if you talk to him and don't buy his things, and he's distinguished from the regular sheep by being much more rotund.
  • Killed Off for Real: He and Steve are the only sheep you meet who cannot be saved; he will always fall to his death offscreen and Steve will be eaten by Vincent's Shadow.
  • Money Fetish: He's absolutely obsessed with money, which is why he's willing to accept the Enigma Coins you find lying around as currency in exchange for items. He hopes to use the amassed dream fortune to buy his freedom from the nightmare. It instead leads to his doom — the bag gets too heavy and he falls off the tower.
  • No Name Given: He's the only non-generic sheep who doesn't have a counterpart that Vincent interacts with in the real world, and so we never learn his real name.

    Golden Sheep 

Golden Sheep

A sheep only appearing in Full Body, named for his golden suit. A very rich man in real life. His real name is Abul Bahril.

  • I Just Want to Be Normal: He truly dislikes his wealth and the troubles it brings to him to where he wishes he could not be a human again in his next life.
  • Lonely at the Top: He's an oil baron born into wealth as he confesses to Vincent, but he hasn't had anyone to trust after having many people use him.
  • Odd Friendship: He forms one with the Sheep with Scarf despite being on completely different walks of life over a song that was made by Roderick and his friend together.
  • Token Minority: He has a Middle Eastern accent and matching headdress and his real world self is indeed Middle Eastern.

    Sheep with Scarf 

Sheep with Scarf

A sheep only appearing in Full Body, named for his scarf. A former musician and a cook for the Stray Sheep. His real name is Roderick Lockhart.

  • Brutal Honesty: He's blunt with the Golden Sheep for being fat and his inability to sing. The Golden Sheep doesn't mind this though because he's the first person that has been upfront with him in ages.
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: He blames his inability to become a musician on money but it's actually subverted in his case. Roderick did have a good shot at being a professional musician, but used his father collapsing as an excuse to duck out because of his own doubts, despite his girlfriend and friend's pleas.
  • Jerkass Realization: He realizes he's been using money and his family's restaurant as excuses for his own lack of conviction on why he couldn't make it as a musician after learning his recently deceased friend wished to sing with him one last time.
  • Odd Friendship: Forms one with Golden Sheep.

    Steve Delhomme 


Voice Actors: Masaki Terasoma (JP), Dave B. Mitchell (EN)

A man who accuses Vincent of stealing Catherine from him.

  • Asshole Victim: Discussed. After being consumed by shadow Vincent, the news announces that he had died in his sleep. According to one of the customers, he openly bragged about having an affair with Catherine and the customer lost all sympathy for him. However, Vincent knows that Steve was a victim of supernatural forces and deeply confused about Catherine and his wife's divorce.
  • But You Were There, and You, and You: He and Vincent both recognize each other (by voice) towards the end of the Nightmare.
  • Chekhov's Gun: After sleeping with Vincent, Catherine runs off to see the dentist. Steve's profession? Dentist.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He's the sheep who gave you tutorials on the first Nightmare.
  • Evil Phone: Only at first, as he threatened to kill Vincent. Never follows through with it, however.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Ends up consumed with jealousy against Vincent after Catherine confesses that she's been seeing him, and is desperate to win her back.
  • Hypocrite: He's downright furious when his girlfriend runs off to "some young bastard", and yet he's the one cheating on his wife with said girl who is far younger than himself.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's cheating on his wife and apparently bragged about his affair to the entire neighborhood, but he does really love Catherine and is devastated when she leaves him. He also takes the time to teach Vincent the ropes of the Nightmare, helping him survive.
  • Killed Off for Real: Steve and the Merchant Sheep are the only ones who can't be saved. No matter what you do, the Merchant Sheep will die offscreen when his bag of coins gets too heavy for him, and Steve will encounter you near the end of the Vincent's Shadow boss level and get eaten in a cutscene.
  • Mauve Shirt: He plays a fairly significant role as the guy who teaches you the ropes of the nightmares, but sadly he doesn't make it to the end of them.
  • One-Steve Limit: Literally. He's the only Steve in game. Vincent is actually surprised that neither of the K/Catherines claim to know anyone named Steve, given that it's a common name (okay, Katherine knows a friend's baby named Steve). Catherine is lying. He, along with Vincent, is one of the people she pulled into the nightmares.
  • Right in Front of Me: From Nights Four to Seven, Vincent can speak to him, where he'll ramble on about his girlfriend being stolen by "some young bastard"... and because they look like sheep to each other, Steve is completely unaware that said "young bastard" is actually standing right in front of him. They don't recognize each other in the Nightmares until after the Seventh Night's boss.
  • Sanity Slippage: First, Catherine leaves him, and Steve becomes desperate to win her back. Then he finds out that she didn't really exist.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He starts off showing Vincent the ropes of the nightmare and generally being helpful, if blunt. Past the tutorial, though, he becomes increasingly more moody and self-centered as his jealousy starts getting the better of him and his affair with Catherine goes south.
  • Unknown Rival: To Vincent. Steve is having an affair with Catherine, but she lets slip that she is more interested in Vincent. Vincent, on his part, is just confused and has no idea what Steve's talking about until they meet up in the Nightmares. It's also suspected that this was what the boss Shadow of Vincent meant to him — the masked being representing that he didn't know who this person unraveling his life was, and never met him in person, but Vincent cast his shadow on Steve's life anyway through his influence on Catherine. When he meets Vincent in the Nightmare, the mask finally breaks as he realizes who the mysterious man that Catherine loved really was.



The various men who've been forced to climb the Tower. To everyone else in the Nightmare, they appear as sheep. This section is for the unnamed, undistinguished sheep populating the nightmares. All of them were brought there due to some issues with women, most often infidelity. They will occasionally climb on the same level as Vincent, where they are obstacles since two people can't be on one block at the same time.

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: What separates the named character sheep from the background sheep is that the sheep with roles in the story are this, while the minor sheep are not.
  • Appearance Is in the Eye of the Beholder: They see themselves as people and everyone else, including the player as sheep.
  • Artificial Stupidity: It's fairly easy to escape the enemy sheep in the Quadrangle. Just lure them onto a row of ice blocks and hang down — the sheep you're facing are the crazy ones, so they'll chase you and then slip right off the tower.
  • Evil Makes You Monstrous: Sheep who go crazy in the nightmares start deviating from the standard model more and more. In the final stages, they don't even look anything like sheep, or humans, any more.
  • Furry Lens: It's shown in-universe that they see themselves as human but eachother as sheep.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: One gray sheep you can talk to is this. He thinks women exist to hold men down and one of the reasons he likes the nightmare is that everyone is male.
  • Sanity Slippage: The deadly nightmares they're having aren't good on the sanity. While most sheep just keep freaking out over their situation, some get worse. The gray sheep in the later levels have lost it so badly that they've embraced the Nightmare and started killing other sheep. And in the real world, they've already died.

    The Mysterious Voice 

Mysterious Voice

A strange voice that frequently tests Vincent's beliefs in the nightmares and asks him questions from the window of a confession booth before each level.

    Catherine's Father (UNMARKED SPOILERS) 


Catherine's father, the plenipotentiary of the netherworld. Despite what that may imply, he's actually more of a bumbling dad than anything else.

  • Big "NEVER!": In Catherine's True Ending, when she tells him to give up and stop opposing her relationship with Vincent, he shouts, "NEVER!"
  • Bumbling Dad: He comes off as fairly ridiculous, with one of his biggest failures is losing to a human wearing only his underwear and a random sword to topple his control of the netherworld.
  • The Chew Toy: He really only exists to be laughed at.
  • The Devil Is a Loser: Big time. His attempts to talk Catherine out of seeing Vincent end with him getting a Groin Attack from her, and in the True Cheater ending, after getting overthrown, he's used as a throne. He's easily the least dangerous supernatural entity in the game.
  • Fantastic Racism: Implied towards humanity from his treatment of Vincent and his constant (attempted) dismissal of him as a "mere human". Thus, Vincent's dethroning of him was a great shock (and humilation) to him.
  • Foreshadowing: His existence is barely hinted at in an optional phone conversation where Catherine yells at her father for interrupting her phone call; his reason for the interruption being that he wanted to play video games with Catherine.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: A non-boss example. He appears very late into the story and is only really used for a couple of cheap laughs. At best, his name explains how Catherine got involved in the plot in the first place, as in mythology, Nergal is the husband of Ereshkigal, who is the sister of Ishtar / Astaroth, who is the one backing Thomas Mutton in the game.
  • Groin Attack: Is the victim of one courtesy of Catherine, who does it to stop his whining.
  • Humiliation Conga: The True Cheater Ending. He gets groin-attacked, has his Parental Marriage Veto overridden, gets dethroned as lord of Hell by a boxer-clad human (Vincent), and is used as a throne and forced to watch that same human woo his precious daughter. Whoof.
  • Large and in Charge: He's physically the largest character in the game unless you count others going One-Winged Angel.
  • Large Ham: It's Jamieson Price. What did you expect?
  • Overprotective Dad: Is very opposed to Catherine dating Vincent, a mere human. Even after Vincent proves himself worthy (by dethroning him!), he's still opposed to the relationship.
  • Parental Marriage Veto: He's not too fond of the idea of Catherine marrying Vincent. Not that any attention is paid to his opinion...
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted. He has red eyes, and the leader of the netherworld, but he's really pathetic.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: He's a fat, bearded devil. Catherine is his attractive succubus daughter
  • Voice of the Legion: Which becomes hilarious when mixed with standard Bumbling Dad lines.
