Main Characters

    Bianca Abercrombie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clinicofhorrorsbianca.jpg
Dr. Albright is busy at the moment, so I will be treating you today.

A young nurse working at the Albright Clinic. Aloof and snarky with a hidden heart of gold, she faces all kind of horrors in this Crapsack World with indifferent professionalism.

    Dr. Albright 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clinicofhorrorsalbright.jpg
Let's cure our patient.

Head of Albright Clinic. He’s jolly and not serious per se, but very caring towards Bianca.


  • The Atoner: His current work as a Backalley Doctor is his way of making up for his previous job as a medical researcher in the Yellow corporation.
  • Back-Alley Doctor: He runs the Albright Clinic, an unofficial clinic on the top floor of an apartment building.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Currently has the thickest eyebrows in this series.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He doesn't look like he would be the best doctor at first due to laziness, but when he steps out to operate, he shows he can be pretty competent.
  • Dirty Business: He sells illegal drugs to rich people and has a semi-legal arrangement with the director. It's implied he does this to keep the clinic afloat, but doesn't actually enjoy doing it, as he warns Bianca away from it several times.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: A blonde and a very caring doctor. In episode 58 he gives a homeless person money for medicine after identifying early stage-mutation on his body.
  • Hidden Depths: He might not act like it, but he takes his job as a doctor very seriously and genuinely wants to help his patients. At the same time he's mature enough to accept that he and Bianca can't help everyone and that sometimes the best they can do is prescribe drugs that make a patient's last living moments more bearable.
    • He’s also very observant, being able to tell that Bianca is upset just by a slight furrow between her eyebrows.
  • Older Than They Look: If that picture he has with her mother is anything to go by, he’s old enough to be Bianca’s father. Comparing the current Dr. Albright to himself during the time the photo is taken, he seems to age backward.

Side Characters

    The Librarian 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/coh_librarian.PNG
The caretaker of Capital City's library.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: She adores Bianca, and always looks at her with...shameless eyes. Let’s put it at that. Bianca is indifferent to it at best.
    Bianca, deadpan but visibly annoyed: “Why are you touching me?”
  • Cuteness Proximity: Gushes over Bianca in every single moment possible.
  • Hot Librarian: She's a very attractive young woman and runs the city's library.
  • Nervous Wreck: Her first reaction to any problem is "panic and run to the Albright Clinic for help".

    The Director 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clinicofhorrorsdirector.jpg
"So... You want money?"

Head of the Capital City bank. She frequently does business with the Albright Clinic.


  • Dirty Business: She pays Dr. Albright huge sums of money in exchange for workers made from one of his concoctions.

    Sarah 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clinicofhorrorssarah.jpg
Bianca's classmate who considers her and Bianca to be best friends.
  • Butt-Monkey: Things don't tend to go well for Sarah. From getting an eye parasite that feeds on her nostalgia to drinking an energy drink that makes her sick. She's lucky her friend is a nurse that deals with those kinds of things.
  • Genki Girl: She's always chipper and enthusiastic, which is quite the accomplishment if you live in a Crapsack World like Capital City.
  • Odd Friendship: The happy, optimistic Sarah likes to hang out with The Stoic, cynic Bianca.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has short, dark blue hair.

    Michaelis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clinicofhorrorsmichealisa.jpg
How most people see him.
True Form 

A hideous blob of flesh and Bianca's classmate.


  • Eldritch Abomination: He's a writhing, slimy mess of tentacles and flesh without his pheromones.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Just misguided at worst. He's introduced fooling the girls in school into falling in love with his Human Disguise, but cuts it out as as soon as Bianca tells him to and seems to be on fairly good terms with her after that.
  • Human Disguise: To a majority of people, he looks like a beautiful young boy. His true form, as seen by Bianca, is actually that of a giant blob of flesh.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Implied. When Bianca sees through his disguise and goes right to taking a sample on Dr. Albright's orders, the first thing he worries about is that she'll spread the word about him being a monster and that his classmates will hate him. He's visibly relieved when Bianca tells him she won't do that.
  • Nice Guy: He's actually easy to get along with, compared to most of his kind.

    Big Father 
A giant environmental mutation who lives in the sewers with his children.
  • Blob Monster: he is a giant blob, and his children are also blobs (albeit much smaller).
  • Heel–Face Turn: He and his children led Bianca into a trap with intent to kill and devour her. After she saves him from dying to sanitizer which she sprayed him with, he and his kids are grateful enough to promise not to attack humans anymore and even offer to aid her when she needs help.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: As their bodies consist of bacteria and pathogens, hand sanitizer is enough to cause Big Father and his kids agonizing pain which can kill them if untreated.

Antagonists

    Mister Yellow 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clinicofhorrorsyellow.jpg
An enigmatic business man.
  • Connected All Along:
    • Episode 56 reveals that the Eternal Gaming Café runs on his company's funding.
    • Dr. Albright and Bianca's mother worked for his company. Dr. Albright left after a Heel Realization. It's unknown if Bianca's mother still works for him, but it's highly likely.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: His company performs dangerous experiments in populated areas and with how fast he stays up-to-date on said experiments, it can be inferred he has a lot of friends in high places. He also bought up all of the citiy's pharma companies and raised the prices for medicine up to a ridiculous level.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He was responsible for the blob monster that caused damage in Capital City. He hasn't had a moment to play Big Bad, but he definitely has proven to be responsible for some big problems with more coming in.
  • Villain Has a Point: Shady as he is, he does have a point in that pharma companies would most likely focus more on competing with each other than actually finding a cure for the country's Body Horror - epidemic, given the choice.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: The Yellow Corporation is Capital City's leading (and only) pharma company and supplies the citizens with medicine that works against mutation. Downplayed, as it's implied a lot of people see right through the company's benevolent act, but just have no choice but to buy from them.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: When asked by a reporter if he thinks it's morally right to have his corporation assimilate every single company in the pharmaceutical industry, he counters that having the drug industry compete with each other like they did before the takeover would only lead to rushed trials, which in turn would lead to medication that wasn't ready. Uniting the pharma companies would erase the need for competition and bring the focus back on creating medicine that actually stopped mutations.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Has white hair and it's obvious he doesn't mean Capital City well.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: He has yellow eyes and is the Corrupt Corporate Executive of a pharma company that conducts highly unethical experiments.

    Bianca's Mom 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clinicofhorrorsbiancasmom.jpg
Everyone dies. You'll die. I'll die. Don't whine about it.
A very sought-after doctor with a cold demeanor.
  • Abusive Parents: Often caused Bianca emotional distress, rarely praised her or showed her affection and kept her from forming any sort of relationship with the man she took for her partner.
  • Darwinist Desire: Many Years Ago and Don't Bother Strangers reveal that she desires the perfect child and chose her partner based on if he matched her intellectually to achieve that goal.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is light pink, just like her daughter's.

    Dr. Peter Barnes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/coh_bs_dad.PNG

Bianca's father, whom she has only met once in her life.


  • Chosen Conception Partner: Bianca's mother picked him specifically for his high intellect, in order to have, as he puts it, a "perfect child".
  • Disappeared Dad: He had very little contact with Bianca outside of introducing himself to her after she was already older, courtesy of her mother not bothering to let her daughter get to know him.
  • Nice Guy: Downplayed. He was very warm and friendly with Bianca and genuinely seemed to want to get to know her, but he also openly admits to her that her mother chose him so they could produce the perfect off-spring, suggesting that he was more than okay with it.

    Eternal Gaming Cafe Employee 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/coh_creepy_guy.PNG

The employee giving Bianca a tour of the café.


  • Cheshire Cat Grin: He has a way too wide smile on his face almost constantly that borders on Slasher Smile at times.
  • Anti-Villain: The establishments he works at lets people play video games over long stretches of time and doesn't take sufficient measures to keep them in good health. He himself sees nothing wrong with that and even believes he and his employers are doing these people a favor by allowing them to die in a fun game world instead of the miserable real world.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He works at and promotes the café despite knowing how negligent it is towards it's customers. When Bianca has enough of his fanatic ramblings and tries to attack him, he grabs her roughly and tries to convince her to become a customer as well.
