Main Cast

    Kazu Decker 

A kind and optimistic 14-year-old imp with a love for science and making friends.

  • Adorkable: He's an enthusiastic ball of energy who's always open to helping everyone around him.
  • Berserk Button: Do not doubt science or learning.
  • Cute Little Fangs: He has two tiny fangs that show up whenever he talks.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: He's got mostly black hair and pure white skin. He's a hell of a lot nicer and more cheerful than most examples though.
  • Eye Scream: He lost his right eye during his last expedition with his parents. It's why he doesn't accompany them on their film shoots anymore.
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: According to the cast page, "Kazu" is just a nickname.
  • Multicolored Hair: His bangs have a little white spiral.
  • Nice Guy: A very friendly and accepting guy.
  • Parental Neglect: His parents are a sole sore spot for him due to them being constantly absent from the house because of their careers as TV celebrities. The sad part is that they repeatedly express their love towards him at the end of their program, but he never gets to see it because he never watches the show.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: His hair covers the right side of his face. It also hides the fact that he's missing his right eye. Evidently, no one else knew about this and thought it was just his hair style.
  • Pointy Ears: On account of being an imp.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Subverted on the supernatural front. Besides his vast medical knowledge, there isn't anything supernatural about him.

    Nemo Musterman 
Kazu's lifelong friend, a 14-year-old devil of unknown type. He's actually half-grindylow half-some invisible creature. Kind of deadpan and gloomy.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Nemo shows up to bail out Pandora and Kazu in chapter two.
  • Body Horror: The right side of his body has invisible skin, exposing some of his bones, muscles and organs.
    Pandora: Gross.
  • Chick Magnet: The majority of the female characters his age express an attraction towards him.
  • Cool Pet: Has a bat that can transform into weapons by chewing game cartridges.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Ringo, the only male member of Echo's book club, gives him a symbol of his love via a fruit duplicate of his severed head.
  • Fish People: Not noticeable, but being part grindylow shows signs for this. He has ear fins under his hair and can breathe underwater.
  • Foil: Nemo could be considered one to Kazu. He's a gloomy, apathetic Gadgeteer Genius without much moral fiber, while Kazu is a friendly, optimistic biologist who believes strongly in the value of life.
  • Made of Iron: Shrugs off being thrown through a window pretty easily.
  • Morph Weapon: His bat, which can turn into various weapons and other objects.
  • Mundane Utility: His bat has the ability to chew game cartridges and transform into weapons, and he can also transform into a bag to carry his stuff.
  • Only Sane Man: Specially towards Kazu and Elliot.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Nemo wants absolutely nothing to do with the fashion show.
  • Ship Tease: Pandora noticeably becomes flustered when he first turns opaque and Nemo himself appears shy that he's completely visible to her.
  • Sociopathic Hero: Nemo, in direct contrast to Kazu.
  • Visual Pun: At one point, Nemo turns his shape-shifting bat thingy into an actual baseball bat. It's even got little wings.
  • You Gotta Have Greenish-Blue Hair
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Although it's certainly not fanservice - the skin on the right-hand side of his body is invisible. That and he's kind of scrawny. Justified since Nemo breathes through his skin, and wearing too much clothing could suffocate him.

    Hitomi Ookumo 
A self-conscious 15-year-old cyclops who likes to sew. She has a crush on Kazu, and is a lot stronger than she makes herself out to be.
  • Berserk Button: Seeing Kazu get hurt sends her into a terrifying rage, so much so that the referee had to knock her out preemptively before she tried anything. Considering her Super Strength her defining quality is also a consistent way to get on her bad side.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Very quiet and shy, but can also suplex Lavi and has strength that can rival Pandora's.
  • Cute Bruiser: Hitomi launches a monster tens of times her size into the air by slapping it.
  • Cute Monster Girl: An adorable, fashion-centric cyclops girl.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Among her collection of stuffed toys there is a life-sized Kazu doll, much to Pandora's surprise.
  • Freakiness Shame: She hates the fact that she possesses Super Strength, mostly because a lot of other devils seem to consider it her defining quality rather than any of her more girlish features and abilities.
  • Girly Bruiser: She'd rather not be involved in a fight, but she is utterly untouchable when she does get involved thanks to her Super Strength. And that's while still being an unapologetic girly-girl obsessed with her crush and fashion.
  • Girlish Pigtails: In some of her appearances.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Her room is filled with all kinds of (moving) toys that she made herself.
  • Innocent Blue Eye: Her one eye is blue in the colored illustrations, and she's generally a shy Nice Girl.
  • Meaningful Name: Hitomi is Japanese for "pupil" or "eye".
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: She's a fairly thin girl, but that doesn't stop her from hurling monsters ten times her size through the air with absolute ease.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's generally a quiet girl who prefers to not be the center of attention. After she wins the school's fashion show, she runs to Kazu for help because she can't handle being popular.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Obviously admires Kazu very much (maybe too much).
  • Super Strength: Being a cyclops. She's rather ashamed of this.

Kazu's biology project, a Frankenstein's Monster he brought to life. Really taciturn and a bit violent.
  • Artificial Human: For a certain definition of "human". She's a devil like everyone else in this series, but apart from her freakish strength she's the most human-like. Her artificial nature is actually something of a sore spot for her, and she gets discomfited when people refer to her as something abnormal or artificial.
  • The Berserker: When thrown into a fight.
  • Big Eater: If there's food nearby she's guaranteed to be munching on it. She has no table manners, either.
  • Boobs of Steel: She has prominent breasts and delivers the punches most of the time.
  • Death Glare: Borders almost on being her default expression.
  • Fingore: In Chapter 2. They're reattached by the chapter afterwards.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Has shades of being one.
  • Godiva Hair: During her bath in Chapter 3.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Pandora wields an oversized safety pin during her fight with Horatio.
  • Knife Nut: Upon her resurrection, she takes a knife from Kazu's house and is seen carrying it throughout Chapter 1.
  • Lightning Bruiser: She's absurdly strong while also being quite nimble thanks to her relatively small physical profile, as seen in the Eggscram match.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: Is brought back to life by a lightning strike.
  • Magic Skirt: All of her skirts fail to turn upwards regardless of how much jumping she does.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her bangs cover the right side of her face.
  • The Stoic: Doesn't emote much, talks less.
  • Super Strength: She shown lifting and tossing monsters and objects four-times her size if not larger.
  • Undeathly Pallor: While a lot of characters are very pale, Pandora's skin is outright blue.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Her approach to every fight is to just use her speed and strength to bulldoze her opponent. This actually proves to be a major weakness against several of the more skilled combatants.
  • When She Smiles: Twice in chapter 3 and another one in chapter 4.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A.

    Ricket Pantano 
A 14 year-old daemon first introduced as a player in the Hemlock Heart Nightmares.
  • Ascended Extra: She's introduced as a minor character in Chapter 4 only to have the following four chapters devoted to one long story arc centering around her and her brother. Following the story arc, she's become a part of the regular cast.
  • Bifauxnen: She has a very slim boyish build, wears her hair short, has a name that isn't exactly feminine-sounding, and gravitates more towards masculine-looking clothing.
  • Butch Lesbian: Heavily implied at least in Chapter 10, where she very clearly becomes absolutely smitten by Hitomi. She also doesn't express any interest in men.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Her choice of clothing and initial pair of glasses make her look rather unimpressive and beady-eyed. The moment she removes her glasses, revealing her comely eyes, and starts wearing something more stylish reveal that she can be quite the looker when she wants to be.


Hemlock Heart Academy

A general-admittance high school that's become something of a magnet for all kinds of mayhem.

    Elliot Hemlock 
The principal of Hemlock Heart Academy.

    Skeleton Ninja Sensei 
The Skeleton gym teacher.
  • Dem Bones: An animate skeleton, caused when someone dies with some great Unfinished Business.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Skeletons give up their names when they come back. The school knows him as "skeleton sensei", "skeleton ninja sensei" (based on a rumor that he was a ninja in life), or Mr. 51. When he was alive, he was known as Rowan Redhorn.
  • The Speechless: Skeletons literally have no voices, he has yet to communicate outside of body language.
  • Unfinished Business: Required to be a skeleton, but nobody actually knows what his deal is.
  • Was Once a Man: Well a Devil. He's very heavily implied to have been the actor who played Kazu and Pandora's favorite TV Superhero, Devilizer

    Gyro Laemanctus 
A 15-year-old Mad Scientist basilisk.

    The Science Club 
Consisting of Horatio Hex, Madhu Morgan, Bebe Pushmi, Bibi Pushmi and Toby Azhorra-tha, with Gyro as the leader.

    The Fashion Club 
Consisting of Silky, her boyfriend Lavi, and an entourage of boys.

    The Hemlock Heart Nightmares 
A very hastily cobbled together sports team created to answer Scarlet Crown's challenge to an Eggscram match. Originally Drake Sabrewing was the only member, but now the team also includes: Petra Phobos, Walton Stonewall, Nigel Dewsnap, Ricket Pantano, Geraldo Garcia and "Charlie Yamamoto".
  • Accidental Misnaming: Drake can't remember Walton's name, calling him "Doory" and "Doorston".
  • Big "WHAT?!": Everyone's reaction when Drake tells them that the game starts in three hours, when they all just met.
  • Breath Weapon: It looks like Drake can breath fire, which he does when he's fired up!
  • Cute Monster Girl: Petra and Ricket.
  • Horned Humanoid: Ricket and Drake.
  • Hot-Blooded: Nigel. Very aggressive, very combative. He also threatened to eviscerate Walton for seemingly no reason.
    Nigel: Nobody's better at anything than me!
  • Lizard Folk: Geraldo.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Drake means "dragon", and he has a draconic appearance.
    • Petra means "stone", and Phobos is the Greek god of fear. Fitting for a Medusa-type devil.
    • Walton is literally a stone wall.
  • Motor Mouth: Walton goes on a long ramble of random information about himself and things he's uncomfortable with when he's first introduced.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: On the receiving end, as the Scarlet Heart Infernos continue to beat them, both physically and in terms of the game.
  • The Quiet One: Geraldo is quiet for the most part.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Drake, upon realizing the person who saved him from a house fire was a firefighter, not an eggscram player, loses his will to continue playing and just flies away.
  • Ragtag Band of Misfits: The team consists of a bunch of random students that have next to no experience with the sport they're supposed to play.
  • Rodents of Unusual Size: Charlie, which is a giant hamster Gyro created.
  • Winged Humanoid: Nigel, Ricket and Drake.

Scarlet Heart Academy

A prestigious private school that enrolls only purebred daemons.
    The Scarlet Heart Infernos 
The rival Eggscram team.

Scarlet Crown Organization

A wealthy NGO with criminal ties and an apparent daemon-supremacist agenda. Only employs daemons, backs the Scarlet Heart Academy, and funds archaelogical expeditions with the goal of proving that daemons were the Giver's chosen.
    Methia Luciferin 
A high-ranking executive (if not the leader) of the Scarlet Crown Organization. Also highly accomplished and highly eccentric.
  • The Ace: Parodied. While on the phone with Tremolo she's simultaneously undertaking a very difficult ice skating routine as well as performing open-heart surgery, and then leaves the surgery partway through to accept an award.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She has a capricious temperament, and see-saws rapidly between being extremely weird and extremely scary without ever losing the smile on her face.
  • Comically Lopsided Rivalry: She has a personal (but unexplained) history with Elliot Hemlock and delights in tormenting him. The power balance between them couldn't be more heavily weighted against Elliot.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Showing up late to a meeting she herself called (because "punctuality is for old people"), wearing a radiation suit for no reason but so she can dramatically unmask herself, in order to announce that the Scarlet Heart Academy will be challenging Hemlock Heart at an eggscram game, specifically because she wants to embarass Elliot. At once, she's established to be powerful, frivolous, and intensely focused all at once.
  • The Wonka: Simultaneously airheaded and absurdly competent, she has a habit of catching her subordinates off-guard at every turn.

    Tremolo Bloodstorm Serpentlord 
Tremolo is a rock musician with a silver tongue. An enforcer for the SCO, and composer of the Scarlet Heart school anthem. Known publically as the famous but reclusive songwriter T.B. Serpentlord.
  • Animal Motifs: Snakes.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Tremolo Bloodstorm Serpentlord. Not his birth name, which was Hucklebrook Dumpstamper. After cutting ties with his family, he evidently decided to overcompensate in the other direction.
  • Compelling Voice: He can command people with his voice, thanks to a seemingly-supernatural sigil carved into his (forked) tongue. It might not be his original tongue. When combined with The Power of Rock, he can sing up gigantic laser-spitting snakes. Methia decided he was abusing his power and ripped it out.
  • Right-Hand Cat: In his case, a three-eyed snake usually draped over his shoulders.

Methia's personal assistant and bodyguard. Composed but beleaguered. Pia's twin.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Played with. Methia isn't incompetent — he's just really straight-laced and she's just kind of nuts.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's been clowned on basically every time he's made a physical appearance.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Pia's red. Calm, focused, and task-oriented.
  • Tattooed Crook: His cast entry says he gets a new one (or a piercing) whenever he gets stressed. He gets stressed out a lot.
  • Would Hurt a Child: It takes a certain kind of grown adult to threaten a high school freshman with a gun, as he does in Devil's Six-String.

Also Methia's personal assistant and bodyguard. Hopelessly in love with Methia. A Cute and Psycho Blood Knight. Twin of Strazio.
  • Berserk Button: Anything and anyone related to a certain Elliot Hemlock and the school he runs.
  • Big Eater: Her cast entry says she eats nine times a day. Super Strength must take a toll on her metabolism.
  • The Ditz: Very sweet and cheerful, and not quite on the same page as everyone else. Most of the time.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Pia loves Methia. Pia loves Methia so much she'll destroy anything that makes her unhappy. Methia, at least, reciprocates.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Strazio's blue: energetic, outgoing, and cheerful.
  • Super Strength: Demonstrated gleefully in her fight with Pandora. Possibly supernatural, as with Tremolo's tongue. When she gets serious, the pressure waves she generates by cracking her knuckles shatters nearby windows.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Without remorse. She establishes her villain cred in Devil's Six-String by beating Clarence unconscious and coming within inches of killing Pandora.

An agent of the SCO. A shady doctor, among other things.
  • Blinding Bangs: His hair covers his eyes, but they don't cover up the implied Eye Scream of the two surgical scars leading up to where they ought to be. Whatever's there glints creepily at certain angles.
  • Cool Shades: They go over the bangs.
  • Gold Tooth: He's got a full grill with the word MIRACLE etched into it.
  • Necromancer: He has the power to resurrect the freshly dead from lethal injuries. While his technique isn't perfect, he can resurrect the same person at least 65 times.

How well does it match the trope?
