    Daisy Brown 

The protagonist of the series, a young girl living with her "pet" monster Alan after the disappearance of her father who created him. note 


  • Adorkable: Daisy is sheltered, innocent, and absolutely adorable.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Daisy is implied to, at the very least, be curious about relationships with women:
    • In "Another cooking video!", the closed captioning appears to be of another conversation Daisy is having with her father, to which she asks if she's able to marry another girl.
    • The captions for "artistic video" seems to be Daisy telling Alan a bedtime story in the form of a fairy tale about the queen of the moon and the queen of the stars trying to be united; it's overtly mentioned they're in love.
    • During June 2018 she asked "wwaitt,, is pridee muonth real?" (sic) on Twitter, and then talked to fans a bit about it, showing that she was interested in the subject.
    • While it's possible it's a coincidence, the friendship bracelet Lithop made for her uses a similar color scheme as a popular version of the lesbian flag.
    • In "Final Video", Alan full on calls Daisy by the derogatory d-word for lesbian while she wears the mentioned bracelet
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Daisy is generally a sweet and innocent girl, but a few times she snaps and gets angry with Alan. At one point it's implied she hits him just offscreen. In "the basement" she actually stands up to him and even dares him to kill her before mocking him when he doesn't. "Final Video" has Daisy outright kill Alan to defend herself and Lithop.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Inverted. Daisy's hair doesn't even reach her shoulders, but she's a Girly Girl.
  • Break the Cutie: In earlier updates she seemed relatively chipper, though she was clearly hiding some serious pain. As Alan grows, however, she gets more put through the wringer, and it shows.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She has her moments, though this might just be because of her sheltered upbringing.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Early on; Alan's more unusual qualities never phased her until he started to develop, and she even lampshaded this in an early episode by admitting that she had no idea that people have likely never seen a monster before.
  • Crazy Consumption: In "friendship bracelet" she mentions that she keeps a bell pepper in her room because she forgets to eat, then, realizing that she doesn't have a knife to slice it, simply bites into it whole like an apple. Note, however, that in context Daisy is stuck in a room because of Alan's abuse.
  • Driven to Suicide: Played with. In "the basement", she dares Alan to kill her. While it's revealed shortly after that she was calling his bluff (knowing that he won't kill her because he needs her to survive), some of her comments about it ("I'M NOT FIGHTING YOU, ALAN! DO IT!") imply that at this point, she no longer cares if he actually goes through with it or not.
  • The Faceless: Daisy's face is always offscreen.
  • Girly Girl: Daisy's hobbies, as shown in her vlogs, include arts and crafts, cooking, cosmetics, and gardening. It makes sense why she would have those hobbies, since she usually has to stay home.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation:
    • "Hateful Thoughts" is full of her doing this, screaming about how much she hates herself, about how her viewers only care about Alan, about how she thinks her father may have created Alan because he hated her and wanted a new "perfect" child to replace her, etc.
    • She does it again briefly in "the basement"—after Lithop assures Daisy that she can help her and the other monsters because she's the doctor's daughter, Daisy tearfully responds with "Lithop, no, I can't help you, I can't even take care of myself!"
  • The Ingenue: Daisy comes off as this. She's innocent, sheltered and naive.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Not explicitly girly, but still a Girly Girl and Ambiguously Gay.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Daisy loves cats, and in one vlog comes across one named Strawberry. She also mentions that cats are her favorite animal.
  • Knife Nut: One tweet she sent out suggests that she has a knife ready in case she needs to defend herself or Lithop against Alan.
  • Mama Bear: In "Final Video", she gains Heroic Second Wind to stand up to and then kill Alan when he makes the mistake of threatening Lithop.
  • The Medic: She tended to Alan early on and Lithop's statements in "the basement" imply that she was meant to be this to the other monsters as well.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Daisy's typing is noticeably full of typos and other errors. She clarifies in one video that she isn't a bad speller, but she's still getting used to using a computer to type, as she learned how on a typewriter.
  • Sanity Slippage: As the vlogs go on, it's clear that isolation, dealing with Alan, and trying to find information left by her father have left a significant and negative impact on Daisy's psyche.
  • Take Up My Sword: Implied in "the basement"—upon hearing that she's the doctor's daughter, Lithop reveals that Daisy's father said that she'd be able to help the monsters in the basement, implying that he intended for her to take up his status as a doctor/scientist. Daisy isn't thrilled with the idea.
  • The Unfavorite: In "Q&A With Alan", Alan taunts Daisy over the possibility that she's this to her father and his creator and the following video implies that Daisy's starting to believe that it's true.

    Alan 

A monster created by Daisy's father. Starts out as a vestigial, larva-like creature but grows into a cruel, semi-humanoid monstrosity. note 


  • Alien Blood: Alan has teal blood, as shown through his various mutations. It's particularly obvious when Daisy kills him in "Final Video."
  • Ambiguously Evil: Something isn't right about Alan. He's been getting increasingly more hostile as the series goes on, at one point is implied to have locked Daisy in her room for no good reason and gives her thinly veiled threats when he learns how to talk and gets bigger. The ambiguity is starting to fade, however, especially seeing as he kills Daisy's cat offscreen.
  • Big Bad: After maturing and subsequently gaining the ability to actively impact the plot, he becomes this—his bullying and abuse causes almost every problem for Daisy and later Lithop.
  • Big Brother Bully: After his growth spurt, he starts acting like a particularly nasty one of these to Daisy.
  • Bloody Horror : When Daisy kills him, his body is covered in light bluish blood.
  • Body Horror: Alan is body horror incarnate, his body being slimy, bloated and covered in pus-filled welts, his eyes being blind and unable to register physical sensations and his mouth being wide and filled with sharp teeth. And then he gets bigger...
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You: Daisy seems convinced of this, and Alan's reaction when she calls him out on this implies that she's at least partially right—Alan clearly would want nothing more than to kill Daisy and have the house to himself, but he is at least somewhat aware that he still needs her to take care of him and thus would die if she wasn't around.
  • Eldritch Abomination: One possible explanation of what Alan is. It would explain how, despite appearing to be an undeveloped larva of... whatever he is, he's able to clearly remember so much about Curtis, moreso than Daisy actually can.
  • Famous Last Words: A satisfyingly terrified "Daisy, no!"
  • Fatal Flaw: His anger ends up acting against him in "Final Video", where he lets go of Daisy to yell at Lithop while the latter is crying out to Daisy. Had he not done that, he wouldn't have ended up as a bloodied corpse.
  • Happily Adopted: ...Kind of? Upon his growth spurt, he becomes less of Daisy's pet and more like her brother, to the point that he refers to her dad as "dad" as well. However, he only seems "happy" about it because he's convinced that he has completely replaced Daisy in their father's heart and he loves to mock and bully her over this.
  • Hate Sink: As of "Q&A With Alan", Alan himself seems to have become this. Ever since he grew up and learned to talk, he's been a cruel, spiteful, abusive little brat who loves mocking Daisy over her insecurities, the deaths of her mother and Strawberry (the latter of which he caused) and the disappearance of her father. Even Daisy finally confesses in the next video that she not only hates Alan but that deep down she suspects that she always has hated him, "Final Video" reveals that Lithop is afraid of him, and the comments sections for both videos are filled with commenters declaring that they want Alan dead for the way he treats Daisy.
  • Hidden Depths: During Alan's takeover of Daisy's Twitter, in between mockery of Daisy he posted a link to a lo-fi hip hop radio. In context he could have been subtly jabbing at the people telling him to get off Daisy's Twitter (judging by his comment), but it's still interesting that Alan would link to that.
  • Hostile Show Takeover: Did this to Daisy's Twitter, posting messages while mockingly posing as her. The sad thing is, what he said in the first one at least isn't completely out of character for Daisy at this point.
  • Jerkass: Alan rips out Daisy's hair, chases her outside, locks her inside rooms, and kills a cat. As if there's not proof enough, "Q&A with Alan" has him take the opportunity to abuse Daisy by making fun of her mother's Death by Childbirth, her father's absence, and Strawberry's death. The poor girl is left screaming with frustration.
  • Karmic Death: He's ultimately killed by the very girl he's been abusing for so long. Additionally, he's killed by someone who he has been relying on for survival.
  • Kick the Dog: Was it really necessary for him to kill Daisy's cat? The answer is no, no it was not. He just wanted to make her suffer.
  • Killed Off for Real: In "Final Video", appropriately enough, Daisy kills him after he tries to stop her and Lithop from leaving and threatens Lithop.
  • Narcissist: The captions in "Monster tries different Sugar sources for the First Time!!", which is the first major look into Alan's mindset, mention that he believes the world is made for him, and not someone like Daisy. Later, he unironically believes that Curtis favors him over Daisy and loves to rub it in her face.
  • Obfuscating Disability: Up until "Artistic video", it was assumed that Alan was blind. In said video, it's revealed that if he ever was blind, his eyes started working a long while ago. He proves this by drawing several pictures of Daisy from memory, producing an uncannily accurate result, and when Daisy pressures him about it, he just laughs.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: "Artistic video" is also the first to demonstrate that Alan's mind is far more developed than his body, showing he's capable of remembering things very well, and that his previous outbursts up to that point were likely genuine antagonism.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Alan outright calls Daisy a homophobic slur in "Final Video," among other forms of abuse.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Part of the reason he resents Daisy so much is because he depends on her for survival.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Subverted. Earlier installments made it seem as though Alan was just an Ugly Cute little bean and grew up to be an abusive buttmunch, but the closed captions for many of these imply that he's always been hateful and angry—though earlier episodes do point to him having been more sympathetic, as it's implied that his many growth spurts have been excruciatingly painful.

    Curtis Brown 

Daisy's father who created Alan and a whole host of other monsters. Current whereabouts unknown. note 


  • Abusive Parents: Some closed captions imply that he had abusive episodes towards Daisy.
  • Ambiguously Evil: Practically everything about him is ambiguous, but his morality especially so. Did he really love Daisy? Why did he make Alan? How did he feel when his wife passed away? Is Alan right in claiming that he blames Daisy for her mother's death?
  • Disappeared Dad: Daisy's dad is mentioned frequently, but never seen, and his whereabouts are never made clear. It's implied that he's still alive but left for some reason—Alan blames Daisy, because of course he does, but Lithop implies that there's more to it than that.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He created Alan and is implicitly responsible for a lot of what's wrong with Daisy, but isn't directly involved in the plot beyond that.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: It's implied in some captions that Curtis' darker side came out sometime after his wife died.
  • Mad Scientist: Considering the fact that he created Alan, we can only assume that Daisy's father is one of these. And "the basement" gives us a peek into how he creates monsters. The process doesn't sound pleasant...
  • Mood-Swinger: Comes off as this in closed captions (especially ones where he's dealing with Daisy), going from calm and mostly logical one moment to shouting with anger and making threats the next.
  • Parental Favoritism: "Q&A With Alan" implies that Daisy's father favored Alan over her.
  • Tragic Villain: If the closed captions for "the basement" are to be believed, Curtis started making monsters in a desperate effort to bring his wife back from the dead.
  • Unnamed Parent: We have no idea what his name is.

    Rose Brown 

Daisy's mother, who passed away giving birth to her.


    Strawberry 

A stray cat Daisy discovered and adopted. note 


  • Cats Are Mean: Alan claims that she was this as a means of justifying him killing her. He's most likely lying.
  • Hope Spot: Acted as a living one for Daisy; she appears and Daisy immediately loves her, but then she forgets to take her with her when Alan chases her out of the house and Alan kills her.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: She's a cute little cat who Daisy adores.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Appears for a single video before Alan kills her.

    Lithop 

A monster Daisy found in the basement and another one of her dad's creations; has been waiting for his return so that he can help her and her fellow monsters. Unlike Alan, she's amicable, friendly and helpful. note 


  • Ambiguous Gender: At first. Her voice sounds like it could be either a girl's or a very young boy's, she isn't initially referred to by any pronouns and of course it's difficult to discern her gender based on appearance as well. Daisy's Twitter refers to her by female pronouns, confirming that she's a girl.
  • Body Horror: So far, we've only seen Lithop's face (and already it isn't pretty), but given that she's implied to be of similar origins to Alan and the state of her compatriots, the rest of her body can't be any better. Daisy's Twitter confirms she has horribly cracked arms, she has no legs, and she has a spindly, root-like tail.
  • Cheerful Child: Her voice makes her sound like one, at least, though she's most likely much older than a child.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: She spoke and was name dropped in the closed captions for a few episodes long before her official debut.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In her first appearance, at least, she comes off as blissfully happy, so much so that she barely notices just how extremely terrified of her Daisy is.
  • Creepy Good: She appears to be much less hostile than Alan, but Daisy is still understandably terrified of her at first.
  • Extra Eyes: According to Daisy's twitter, she has three eyes. Though one of them is swollen shut.
  • The Grotesque: She's deformed and frightening in appearance, but seems to want to help Daisy rather than hurt her.
  • Nice Girl: She's very friendly towards Daisy, even rushing to return her camera to her after she flees at the sight of her face.
  • Nightmare Face: Her mask hides one.
  • Old Friend: For a given definition of "friend". She recognizes Alan when she sees him, acknowledging him as "the little one from so long ago". "Final Video" confirms that, if there was any friendliness between them, it would certainly have been one-sided from Lithop as Alan clearly hates her.
  • Plant People: According to Lithop herself, she's only part plant. The rest of her is human DNA.
  • The Pollyanna: Unlike her fellow monsters, Lithop is friendly and optimistic.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her introduction is a massive Wham moment, revealing to the viewers and Daisy just what was in the forbidden basement this whole time.
  • White Mask of Doom: Subverted. she wears a white mask made out of a paper plate with a smiley face on it, and not only is she a good guy, but the mask helps cover up her grotesque appearance.

    The Other Monsters 

More monsters living in Daisy's basement. All of them have been awaiting the doctor's return so that he can heal them.


  • Body Horror: We never see any of them, but their agonized voices and implied origins imply this.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Same as Lithop.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Their only noteworthy appearance suggests they're this to Lithop—while she's happily gushing over how Daisy is going to save them, they notice that Daisy's overwhelmed and panicking and start shushing Lithop and telling her to stop talking.
  • Walking Spoiler: For the same reason as Lithop.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After Lithop starts rooming with Daisy, we never hear from these guys again. Daisy ends up having to leave them behind when she flees the house with Lithop, though this is a more justified case as she likely knows that she can't possibly bring all of them with her.
