     Central Characters 

Sophia Lilbette / Candel Aubra

  • Alone with the Psycho: Happens to her during her little "makeover" with Nutty Jimmy. Then later in the story she unknowingly rides in a carriage with the Meowsician, of all people, after he "saves" her from some dolls. And then it happens again when she ends up all alone with Darkchovi, who has revealed himself to be the real "Sophia" murderer, in the opera prop room. No wonder the poor girl is so traumatized....
  • Berserk Button: We advise against calling her Pixie...
  • Clear My Name: Kind of the premise of the story.
  • Cowardly Lion: Described as being afraid of everything, but she's managed to survive Decembersville so far.
  • Face Your Fears: Her time in Decembersville seems to be a long, drawn-out series of this.
  • Fear of Thunder
  • Improbable Weapon User: A flashlight given to her by Darkslaw at the beginning of the story
  • In-Series Nickname: "Pixie."
  • Morality Pet: Becomes one to Mellon, eventually
  • Muggle
  • Non-Action Girl
  • Unlikely Hero: Prepubescent? Terrified of nearly everything? No special talents or abilities to speak of? Ladies and gentlemen, introducing our protagonist...


Pendulum Tin

Melloni Collie

Darkslaw / Tammy

  • And I Must Scream: Being turned into a doll is a terrible fate to begin with. But since Chimabell didn't fully change Darkslaw, he still retains his ability to think and feel as he is forced to do terrible deeds for the very people responsible for his condition. Up to and including being forced to hunt down the same little girl he sacrificed himself for in the first place
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Darkslaw was captured and turned into a doll after saving Sophia from the Von Pyres initial assault
  • Hidden Depths: At first he just seems like your typical teenager pestering a little kid and telling her scary stories. Then he saves Sophia's life and we learn his backstory.
  • Silent Snarker: Tammy, occasionally. One notable instance being when Chimabell tells him to take notes during one of his rants, but when he looks at the paper the only thing present is a doodle of Chima hung from a tree with a smiling Tammy nearby

Count Merry-Go Round

  • Beware the Nice Ones: A kind and sensitive person who wouldn't dream of hurting anyone, and even saves Sophia and Zero twice (albeit, not knowing who the former really was). But he shows no mercy to humans, even if they're just a little girl.
  • Love Makes You Crazy / Love Makes You Evil: He's actually quite nice until he decides he has to murder a small child to avenge his wife.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Only after seemingly killing Sophia does he realize just how far he's fallen
  • Our Vampires Are Different
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Gardens in a flowery pink apron and sun hat.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When he comes home after finally (he thinks) killing Sophia to find that he had destroyed his rose garden in his rage, and his best friend and wife's spirit are both seemingly ignoring him out of shame. He starts to break down completely, begging them all for for forgiveness and eventually starting to hallucinate his wife's spirit
  • Would Hurt a Child: Besides his hunting Sophia, he was also perfectly happy to toss around the Howler kids when he realized they were helping her.

Chimabell Von Pyre

"Meowsician" / Andante

Azgda Malakov

     Secondary Characters 

Bella Von Pyre

Campara Von Pyre

  • Accidental Kidnapping: Victim of such.
  • Adrenaline Makeover: Inverted. She starts out sophisticated and put together, but she gets scruffier as time goes on.
  • Big Sister Instinct: There is a moment where she briefly throws away her pride and outright pleads with her captors to be let go.... Because she sensed that Chimabell was in a lot of pain and wanted to help her little brother.
  • Bi the Way: Word of God, just like her brothers.
  • Dark and Troubled Past
  • Easily Forgiven: Played around with some, Tin holds no grudge against her despite her role in his prior imprisonment, and Sophia and Zero both warm up to her as well. However, Mellon is still rather grumpy with her and the rest of the rebels make it quite clear that she has a very long way to go before they'll consider her redeemed
  • Heel–Face Turn
  • Hope Is Scary: There's a part of her that really wants to, but life experiences have made her a little leery towards the concept.
  • In-Series Nickname: Chima calls her "Campy."
  • Middle Child Syndrome: A meta-example, interestingly enough. Both Bella and Chima have fairly large followings, but poor Campara tends to get left out in cold by the fans.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Gets a big moment of this when the rebels call her out for all the pain that's been caused by her and her siblings. Especially when she learns that Tin is the sun conjurer, meaning she's at least partially responsible for his time in the Chopping Place and all of the resulting trauma
  • Parental Abandonment: She was two-years-old when her real parents left, so she doesn't remember them.
  • Pet the Dog: Saves Sophia's life fairly early on, even before she had really bonded with any of the heroes except Tin.
  • Rich Bitch
  • Sour Supporter: To the heroes eventually, despite technically starting out as a prisoner. She's still snippy and doesn't hesitate to insist that she hates them and will make them pay when she "escapes", but as Zero points out she's had several opportunities to go through with her threats and hasn't. She even helps them of her own free will at times, and has saved Sophia's life before
  • Tap on the Head: To the point it's become something of a Running Gag.
  • Tsundere: Type A, for Pendulum Tin.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Much like her older brother, though to a slightly lesser extent.
