Jordi "Bleu/Urdin/Azul" Bertrand, Spy
"I never claimed to be a good spy."

  • Butt-Monkey: Scout seems to think so.
    "It's like you were made to get the shit kicked out of yourself!"
  • Chaste Hero: Word of God says he doesn't know what his sexuality is, so he doesn't know how to answer Jeremy's feelings.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: He seems to be acting on instinct, which often has him doing good but stupid things.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He's utterly convinced for most of the comic that he's not a good spy (which isn't entirely true - his only failing as a spy is his refusal to kill people, he's still pretty good at the subterfuge elements that come with the job), and that BLU Scout would probably lose interest in him at some point.

  • Messy Hair: It gets worse as time goes on due to stress.
  • Naïve Newcomer: At first, but by the end he is the default leader.
  • Oblivious to Love: Take you...where?
  • A Protagonist Shall Lead Them: He takes over when Gabriele dies.
  • Reluctant Warrior: He tries not to kill.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: Actually manages to stay calm in the face of danger (unless it involves fire), but still manages to act like a complete dork the rest of the time.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has permanent burn scars on his right side on his shoulder, arm, etc.
  • Tan Lines: As time goes on, his mask causes the area around his eyes and mouth to tan a lot more than the rest of his face.
  • Technical Pacifist: He'll shoot you if it saves a life, but if possible, he won't make it a kill shot. He's afraid that he will like killing. He later is forced to kill Khalil, the red pyro, and he accidentally kills Blue Medic when the medic tried to kill Jeremy for being useless.

  • Unreliable Narrator: To his Unseen Audience, Rojo.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Deathly afraid of fire.

Jeremy "Scooty Puff Junior" Lawson, Scout
"This is all fucked the fuck up!"

  • Attention Whore: At one point he lies and says that he did all the work in a fight and while Jordi was cowering. He leaves out the part where Jordi took back his gun right from under Gabriele's nose and shot Red Engineer.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Really seems to hate gay people. Because he is one.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Subtle shades of this when RED Scout is around Bleu.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: About half of anything he says.
  • If It's You, It's Okay If It's You, It's Okay]]:Word of God says he's straight except for Jordi.

Liam Williamson, Sniper

  • Driven to Suicide: If the BLU Medic is to be believed.
  • Eye Scream: Jojo takes them out to disable him. If the Blu team can't do their duties and can't be replaced, he believed the war would end.
  • Face Palm: Does one when Jeremy reminds Gabriele that he tried to kiss him. Red spy than says he forgot about that causing this reaction.
  • Man Hug: Hugging ensues when Bleu comforts him after Red's death.
  • Unsound Effect: Early on, about half of his lines seem to be actions rather than words.


Engineer (Engie)
"He cut anything off?"

  • Team Dad: Older than the rest of Team BLU, seems to be the voice of reason.

"Need help vit ze bleedink?"


  • The Alcoholic: Downplayed. He isn't seen drunk that often.
  • Out of Focus: He doesn't show up that much or how a lot of lines, but he's there. The author liked drawing the character, but had problems writing his lines as stated here.


Gabriele (Gabry) "Red" De Luca, Spy
"You're cuter than I expected."

James, Scout
"Peep! Go find Engie!"

Anton Moeller, Medic
"T-tut mir leid."

Robert (Engie), Engineer

  • The Smart Guy: Figures out the solution about how to use the hidden cameras to develop an early warning system to a train's arrival.

Miguel, Rojo, Spy
"I'm zhe hero in zhis s'ory."

  • Morphic Resonance: Though it hasn't been commented on within the comic itself, his disguises are usually given away to the readers by his almost luminescent green eyes.
  • Out-Gambitted: He didn't know it, but his plan to disable the Blus was doomed to fail. He assumed that the Blu team would be humane enough to treat their disabled and keep them alive. Blu medic was killing Rojo's victims who couldn't be healed or didn't want to be healed.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He at least thinks he's this - he seems to be under the delusion that if he can disable the members of the BLU team (as the team members are only replaced when one of them dies), then they'd have to surrender and RED can win the war, ending the conflict. Because of this mindset, he's done some pretty awful things to the BLU team, whilst thinking that he's "the hero of this story" and that anyone going against him is a traitor.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: He's from Basque Country. Basque is not a part of any known language family tree, making his accent very unique. He also speaks Spanish and, given the region, may also speak some French.

Kinsey, Sniper
"That's debatable."

  • Foil: For Rojo. He's calm, logical, and team-oriented, whereas Rojo is... not.

Khalil, Pyro

First Red Sniper

  • Batman Gambit: He assumed Gabry would jump in front of the bullet meant for Liam. He was right.
  • Cold Sniper: The closest matching one in the series. Demonstrated especially after he kills Gabry for intending to leave the war.
  • Deadpan Snarker: "You're s'posed to wait til I'm not lookin' to do that." Referring to Bleu decloaking right in front of him after he killed Gabry.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: The Red Sniper gets a chance for a perfect head shot on Bleu... and immediately relents when the end-of-day alarm goes off.

How well does it match the trope?
