Fabian Seacaster

Played by: Lou Wilson

Race: Half-elf
Class: Fighter (Champion)

The half-elf son of notorious pirate William Seacaster. He's trained his entire life to become the next Big Man on Campus and strives to make his father proud.


  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: Underneath his enormous ego is a young man who feels the pressure of his family legacy.
  • The Leader: Is a natural fit for this role, but subverted in that the group is more of a democracy than a strict autocracy.
  • Lovable Jock: Has the letterman jacket and ego to match, but cares deeply for his friends.
  • Nouveau Riche: He lives in a large mansion created from his father's old pirate ship.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Had no problem with his father bribing the Owlbear coach to get him on the team.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Even though his father dotes on him, he still works his hardest to earn his respect.

Kristen Applebees

Played by: Ally Beardsley

Race: Human
Class: Cleric (Life Dominion)

The eldest child of the Applebee family and faithful follower of the corn god Helio. She comes to Aguefort to rub elbows with the diverse student body and experience everyday teenage life.


  • Coming-Out Story: Her entire arc seems to be this.
  • Crisis of Faith: Experiences a major one throughout the entire series.
  • Crystal Dragon Jesus: Her family worships Helio, the God of Corn, and has all the hallmarks of a Midwestern Christian family.
  • Granola Girl: Has a tye-dye shirt and worships a god of the harvest.
  • Rebellious Spirit: A subversion. On the surface she's so squeaky clean and nice that you'd think she would be the last person to fit this trope. But it's precisely because she practices the spirit as well s the letter of Helio's teachings that she's in rebellion against her Fantastic Racist parents and
  • Token Religious Teammate: Comes with being a cleric, but is also the kid who comes from a religiously conservative family.

    Gorgug Thistlespring 

Gorgug Thistlesprings

Played by: Zac Oyama

Race: Half-orc
Class: Barbarian (Berserker)

A half-orc teen who was adopted by gnomes. Is having trouble coping with his place in the world.


  • Adorkable: He's super soft-spoken and sweet with an affinity to making tin flowers.
  • The Berserker: Fitting of being a barbarian, but really a result of being a socially awkward teen with few emotional outlets.
  • Disappeared Dad: To the point where he asks nearly everybody if they could be his dad.
  • Emo Teen: Has the hoodie, the headphones, and hair to match.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: He's a lanky, awkward half-orc who just wants to make friends.

Played by: Siobhan Thompson

Race: High Elf
Class: Wizard (Divination)

  • Fortune Teller: She's a Divination Wizard.
  • Nervous Wreck: Is prone to panic attacks due to her family's expectations and the general pressure of high school.

  • Sibling Rivalry: Absolutely HATES her older sister.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Is probably the most down-to-earth when compared to her rich, snooty family.
  • Squishy Wizard: As expected from her D&D class, but further emphasized by her panic attacks. She's not exactly super fit.
  • Stuffy Brit: Seems to be an Elven trait, but her family ramps it up to a T.

    Riz Gukgak 

Riz Gukgak

Played by: Brian "Murph" Murphy

Race: Goblin

    Fig Faeth 

Figeuroth "Fig" Faeth

Played by: Emily Axford

Race: Tiefling/Wood Elf
Class: Bard (College of Whispers)

A wood elf girl who recently discovered she's a tiefling and thus is going through her rocker rebellion phase. With her base guitar and a massive chip off her shoulder, she starts the school year ready to lash out against the world.


  • The Bard: A hardcore rocker version of one.
  • Disappeared Dad: A major reason for her current attitude. She's on the search for her real demon dad and practically asks any demon or tiefling if they could be her father.
  • Fille Fatale: Only 15 years old and already trying to flirt with much older men.
  • The Power of Rock: Most of her bardic spells come from her sweet guitar.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Oh yeah. Discovering her demon heritage resulted in Fig rebelling in any way possible, much to her mom and the principal's chagrin.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Deliberately invokes this with her clove cigarettes.
  • Tsundere: An exaggerated version of one. A Running Gag involves Fig often telling the group that while she seems hard to read and puts up a tough cool girl persona, she tells them that she trusts them and considers them her closest friends. And then she immediately follows it up with a comical display of aloofness - one time by abruptly sprinting out of an ice cream shop and another by telling them all to shut up and kicking over a chair.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Before her horns grew in, she was the typical cheerleader type. Has since traded her pom-poms for a leather jacket and bass guitar.

Hargis

Aguefort Faculty

     Principal Aguefort 

Principal Arthur Aguefort

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Human
Class: Wizard

The mercurial principal and eponymous founder of Aguefort Academy.


  • Cool Old Guy: He may be weird but there's no denying the badassery of sacrificing his life so he could revive two students he barely knew.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Due to a combination of getting on in years and just being a straight up oddball, Aguefort's Establishing Character Moment has him give a rambling speech to the student body that goes off on wild tangents and takes a while to coalesce into a coherent point.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Not that he had much opportunity to teach the main characters much of anything, since he dies on the first day of school in order to revive Kristen and Gorgug.
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: One of only two people capable of handling 'Watches and Wards', the book binding Kalvaxis to the school without being knocked unconscious. The other being Arthur's lover, the Elven Oracle and then Adaine when she became the new Oracle after the old one was killed in the shipwreck.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Revealed to be centuries old, according to supplementary historical articles and his personal autobiography.
  • Wizard Beard: His character art depicts him with a flowing white beard that drapes all the way down to his waist.

     Vice Principal Goldenhoard 

Vice Principal Goldenhoard

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Red Dragonborn/Red Dragon

The strict vice principal of Aguefort.


  • Badass Baritone: Brennan plays Goldenhoard with a booming, commanding voice several octaves deeper than his normal register. Becomes Evil Sounds Deep when his true nature is exposed.
  • The Comically Serious: Acts as a foil to the goofier characters - namely Arthur Aguefort and Fig - and puzzled by their bizarre antics. This trait carries over even after he's exposed as the villain.
  • Draconic Humanoid: The only dragonborn in the entire school faculty. Becomes a plot point later when it turns out there are no dragonborns on the school's payroll, since Goldenhoard is an actual dragon.
  • I Call It "Vera": Totes around a cricket bat he calls "Hawthorne, Cleaver of Heinies!"
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Is a hard-ass and known to carry around a cricket bat for the purposes of corporal punishment, but takes care of the main six after their ordeal with the corn monsters.
  • Stern Teacher: Describes himself as in charge of disciplining students at school.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His character's artwork depicts him as such.
  • Walking Spoiler: The penultimate episode reveals that he is really the Big Bad Kalvaxus, Emperor of the Red Waste and not even a dragonborn, but a red dragon who was cursed and bound into Principal Aguefort's service.

     Coach Daybreak 

Coach Daybreak

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Human
Class: Paladin

Aguefort Academy's gym teacher and coach for the Owlbears.


  • Boom, Headshot!: Riz kills him by shooting him in the head.
  • Knight Templar: The main characters discover Daybreak is the leader of the Harvestmen, a militant off-shoot of the Church of Helio that believes the world is impure and needs to be cleansed in an apocalyptic event.
  • Hypocrite: Has no problem taking Bill Seafort's money to let Fabian on the Owlbears and then cheats him out of it by kicking him off the team.

    Mister Gibbons 

Mr. Gibbons

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Gnome

The school guidance counselor.


  • Boom, Headshot!: Aguefort shoots him in the head as part of the ritual to revive Gorgug.
  • Catchphrase: "There's some really powerful feelings here."

    Doreen 

Doreen

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Human

The lunch lady.


  • Wake-Up Call Boss: And also the very first fight of the series. The fight with her starts with a lot of jokes about "corn cuties" and failing to jump up on tables. It ends with two characters dead and another two close to it.

     Jawbone 

Jawbone

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Werewolf

Aguefort's replacement guidance counselor after Mr Gibbons is killed by Principal Aguefort.


  • Ascended Extra: Originally just a generic doorman to a nightclub, but evolved into a major character for the second half of the show.
  • Nice Guy: Contrary to his history of drug-dealing and attacking Adaine at the Black Pit and nearly turning her into a werewolf, Jawbone is otherwise a chill, relaxed guy.
  • Psychologist Teacher: Quickly proves himself to be a competent guidance counselor that both the students and faculty admire despite having next-to-no professional qualifications.

Aguefort Students

     Penelope Everpetal 

Penelope Everpetal

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Half-elf
Class: Sorcerer

One of the popular students at Aguefort and Dayne Blade's girlfriend.


  • Academic Alpha Bitch: Condescendingly compliments Adaine on her first day of school and noted to run a lot of the school's extracurricular clubs. She also happens to be part of the palimpsest conspiracy, and is the one to befriend many of the girls who are trapped in the crystals to use in Kalvaxus's unbinding ritual.
  • Valley Girl: Her voice resembles this accent.

     Dayne Blayde 

Dayne Blayde

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Human
Class: Paladin

The captain of the school's bloodrush team, the Aguefort Owlbears, and Penelope Everpetal's boyfriend.


  • Big Man on Campus: Runs unopposed as Aguefort's Prom King and is the captain of the Owlbears; he is more or less what Fabian tries to be at school.
  • Dumb Jock: Doesn't seem too bright and little slow on the uptake.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his noted ditziness, he actually explains the incorrect usage of "less questions" as opposed to "fewer questions" when Adaine corrects Penelope's grammar.

     Ragh Barkrock 

Ragh Barkrock

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Half-orc

The school's resident bully, Dayne's best friend and also a member the Owlbears.


  • Armored Closet Gay: Revealed in "Prompocalypse" to have had romantic feelings for Dayne, and bottled up these feelings until Jawbone encouraged him to be open with them.
  • The Bully: Ragh is the classic depiction of this archetype, a beefy jock that picks on the more socially ostracized kids at school; namely Riz, Gorgug, Kristen and Zayn Darkshadow.
  • Dumb Jock: Doesn't seem to know what a church is, calling it a "house with no beds and a lot of benches."
  • Hot-Blooded: Prone to angry outbursts whenever he thinks someone is insulting him, Dayne or Coach Daybreak.
  • Verbal Tic: Injects "dude" in every other sentence.

     Biz Glitterdew 

Biz Glitterdew

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Pixie

Head of Aguefort's AV Club.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: Biz becomes this for Adaine, who is instantly repulsed by his forward advances and insensitive attitude.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Thinks of himself as this, despite Adaine and everyone else's belief to the contrary.
  • Fall Guy: Was intended to become this when it's revealed that his evil plan to trap the girls in the palimpsest crystals was a fake memory implanted in his head by Aelwyn Abernant designed to frame him as the mastermind behind the conspiracy.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: None of the main characters seem to like him very much - even Riz, who Biz seems the closest to barely tolerates him - and only keep him around because of his technical expertise and is the only one who can safely handle the palimpsests.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Is depicted as a heavyset guy with glasses and braces.
  • Nice Guys Finish Last: Uses this as a justification for trapping girls in the palimpsests in order to control them.

     Zelda Donovan 

Zelda Donovan

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

A painfully shy satyr with a crush on Gorgug.


  • Birds of a Feather: Both she and Gorgug are socially awkward wallflowers who share a taste for metal music.

  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Depicted as a black-haired elf with blue-ish pale skin like that of a dead body.
  • Goth: Zayn dresses in black, has a dour personality and spends most of his time hanging around the Cravencroft Cemetery.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite being part of the criminal ring that kidnapped young women and trapped them in palimpsests he cared deeply for his rat Edgar. The last thing he does before dying is freeing Edgar from his cage to make sure he got away safely.
  • Jerkass: Not the most pleasant person and was involved in the palimpsest conspiracy and poisoning Arthur Aguefort.

Residents of Elmville

The Main Six's Families

     Bill Seacaster 

Captain William "Bill" Seacaster

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Human
Class: Pirate

Fabian's father and a renowned pirate.


  • Affably Evil: An unrepentant and emotionally unstable pirate who has admitted to murdering several people, most notably his father at the tender age of nine, but cares deeply for his family above all else.
  • Ax-Crazy: A lot of his behavior veers dangerously close to this territory.
  • A Pirate 400 Years Too Late: Brennan specifically narrates that Bill Seacaster dresses like your stereotypical pirate, and sticks out like a sore thumb in the suburban Americana setting of Elmville.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Bribes Coach Daybreak to get his son on the Owlbears

     Hillariel Seacaster 

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: High Elf

Fabian's mother.


  • Lady Drunk: Is intoxicated for most of the series.
  • Recovered Addict: After Bill Seacaster is killed and Fabian talks some sense into her, Hillariel decides to stop drinking and train Fabian in the art of fencing.
  • Stacy's Mom: Played for Laughs. The rest of the party remark that she's hot, much to Fabian's dismay.

     Sklonda Gukgak 

Detective Sklonda Gukgak

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Goblin

Riz's mother who works as a detective for the Elmville Police Department.


  • Action Mom: Is a competent cop and one of the show's best parents.
  • Good Parents: While she works long hours as a cop and her family isn't financially in the best place, Sklonda cares deeply for Riz, tries to be as involved in his life as much as possible and prioritizes his safety and well-being above all else.
  • Mama Bear: This trait shows up just as much for the other kids as much as it does for Riz. One notable example is after Aelwyn is arrested but Anguin tries to thwart it by invoking his diplomatic immunity. Sklonda then points out how diplomatic immunity can be revoked if a member of a diplomat's family feels unsafe in the presence of another member, pointedly allowing Adaine to use this loophole to make sure Aelwyn stays arrested.

     Digby and Wilma Thistlespring 

Digby and Wilma Thistlespring

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Gnomes

Gorgug's adoptive parents and a pair of tinkerers.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: When Kalvaxus sends his forces to burn down the Thistlespring tree and kill Digby and Wilma, Gorgug returns to find the front lawn piled with dead bodies and his parents inside the flaming tree each of them wielding deadly weapons (Digby with a BFG and Wilma with a circle of robotic drones). They then climb into a tank to fight off Kalvaxus's approaching army, but not before telling Gorgug that while they are sweet people and try to be nice to everyone, that doesn't mean they are "fucking pushovers."
  • Doting Parent: Thoroughly supportive of Gorgug and love him with both of their hearts.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Their home tree doubles as a tinkering workshop, and Digby and Wilma are often hired to build technological devices for Elmville.

     Anguin and Elianwyn Abernant 

Anguin and Professor Elianwyn Abernant

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: High Elf

Adaine and Aelwyn's parents, a diplomat and Hudol professor respectively.


  • Abusive Parents: Of the emotional variety towards Adaine.
  • Jerkass: All around terrible people, not only toward their daughter but also other people like Sklonda and Gilear, who look down on others who aren't high elves or academics/people of high status.
  • Pet the Dog: On the father's part, at least; he's the one to give Adaine her arcane focus, which is pretty much essential to being a wizard.
  • Skewed Priorities: Are more angry about the fact that Adaine got detention and used a melee weapon instead of a spell to kill someone, rather than the fact that she killed someone in the first place.

     Aelwyn Abernant 

Aelwyn Abernant

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: High Elf
Class: Wizard

Adaine's sister and a student at Hudol Academy.


  • Cain and Abel: What her and Adaine's relationship develops into when it's revealed Aelwyn is part of the palimpsest conspiracy and she tries to kill Adaine and her friends. Is the Cain to Adaine's Abel.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Revealed to be this in "Cool Kids, Cold Case" when she arrives at the Hudol house party. She is often paid by the Hudol boys to come to their parties, conjure a legion of elemental cheerleaders to drink and have a good time with them. The first thing she does when she arrives at Ostentatias's house is smash a bottle over the party host's head, uses a spell to telekinetically drink a shot and make out with Fabian before snorting a line of dragon spice up his chest.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Adaine defeats Aelwyn by incapacitating her with Tasha's Hideous Laughter, the very spell that Aelwyn reflected back on Adaine in the first episode.
  • Parental Favoritism: Anguin and Elianwyn constantly hold Aelwyn in a higher regard than Adaine, holding her accomplishments over Adaine's head.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Has been in one with Adaine her whole life. Their first interaction together shows them trying to one-up each other by slinging spells at the family breakfast table.

     Sandra Lynn Faeth 

Sandra Lynn Faeth

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Wood Elf
Class: Ranger

Fig's mom.


  • Aerith and Bob: Even in a setting resembling 1950s America, the fact she's an elf with a mundane name like Sandra Lynn despite living in a world with other elves who have names like Gilear, Hallariel and Elianwyn stands out.
  • Parents as People: She tries her best to raise Fig but is prone to her own missteps.

     Gilear Faeth 

Gilear Faeth

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Wood Elf
Class: Lunch Lad

Fig's adoptive father, who she believed to be her biological parent until she was revealed to be a tiefling. Just a real sadsack of a guy.


  • Big Eater: A lot of jokes about him surround the truly disturbing amount and types of food he eats.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nothing really ever seems to go right for Gilear. Physically speaking, Gilear is the only elf seen on the show depicted with a comb-over and a notable paunch. Then after divorcing Sandralynn, he starts the show as an unemployed deadbeat who lives in a crappy apartment on the bad side of town and eats expired yogurt. Even when he does get a job at Aguefort, despite having the qualifications to be the new guidance counselor is beaten out by Jawbone - a drug-dealing werewolf with no prior experience counseling children - and instead is stuck as the new cafeteria worker (officially dubbed with the title of "Lunch Lad").
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: At the end of the campaign, after being jerked around in every way possible he becomes Aguefort's new vice principal.

     Gorthalax the Insatiable 

Gorthalax the Insatiable

Race: Pit Fiend

A pit fiend trapped beneath the Durinson Mithral Factory by Arthur Aguefort. Revealed to be Fig's long-lost father.


  • Demon Lords and Archdevils: A high-ranking fiend of the Nine Hells.
  • Good Parents: Despite his absence in Fig's life and his demonic nature, Gorthalax consistently demonstrates himself to be a good-natured and reasonable authority figure that Fig and the others can rely on.

Other NPCs

     Johnny Spells 

Johnny Spells

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Tiefling
Class: Warlock

A tiefling biker who runs a gang of dancers/criminals on the outskirts of Elmville.


  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: One of the stipulations in the warlock pact he made with Gorthalax the Insatiable is that he wasn't allowed to get laid.
  • Dance Battler: Bizarrely, his gang also moonlights as a dance crew. Outside of his criminal activities, Johnny Spells's weekly schedule was heavily dedicated to dance practice.
  • Greaser Delinquents: Dresses and talks like a 1950s greaser, and the head of criminal biker gang.
  • Verbal Tic: Calls people "daddy-o." It's how Fig is able to impersonate him after they kill him and steal his crystal phone.

    The Hangman 

The Hangman

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Possessed Motorcycle

The motorcycle ridden by Johnny Spells and later Fabian.


  • Has a Type: Not for itself, but who it suggests Fabian should try to get together with clearly shows its fiendish origins, first suggesting Fig because she's a tiefling and later Adaine after she displays propensity with fire magic.
  • Haunted Technology: It has the essence of some fiend bound into it, giving it sentience and allowing it to move on its own.
  • The Matchmaker: It's openly gives advice to Fabian about trying to woo certain girls, mostly in the vein of offering motorcycle rides.
  • You Kill It, You Bought It: Whoever defeats its current rider becomes its new master.

     Tracker 

Tracker

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Werewolf

A werewolf girl who Kristen meets at the Black Pit.


  • Closet Key: Her encounter with Kristen at the Black Pit is what leads the latter to realize she's gay.
  • Cute Monster Girl: An adorable werewolf girl who certainly attracts Kristen's attention.
  • Love Interest: For Kristen.
  • Nice Girl: Nothing but sweet and mellow towards Kristen and the other characters.

     Asha 

Dr. Asha

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Dwarf

A handsome doctor who works at St. Owen's Memorial Hospital.


  • Hospital Hottie: Described as gorgeous and his character art depicts him with a dazzling smile and sweeping blonde haircut.
  • Large Ham: Everything he does and says is done in a bombastic and an over-the-top manner worthy of a Grey's Anatomy episode.

     Basrar 

Basrar

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Djinn

An ice djinn and the owner of Basrar's Soda Fountain, Elmville's local ice-cream parlor.


  • Our Genies Are Different: A genie only capable of granting ice cream-related wishes.
  • Stepford Smiler: Seems happy, but the main characters pick up on a deep sadness beneath the facade. Also whenever he moves behind his shop's counter he can be heard sobbing very loudly.

     The Cubbys 

Bud and Daisy Cubby

Played by: Brennan Lee Mulligan

Race: Halfling

A cheerful halfling family who offer the kids a ride after a traffic accident.


  • Big Damn Heroes: Bud and his whole family show up to break the Bad Kids out of jail near the end of the school year.
  • Bomb-Throwing Anarchists: Bud and Daisy are staunchly anti-authority with a deep distrust of the police, and (politely) espouse the idea of violent resistance if necessary.
    Siobhan: (out-of-character) I think it's really cool that these nice halflings are, like, anarcho-socialists.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: These helpful bystanders are just goofy one-off characters, right? Nope. They have a key part to play in helping the protagonists thwart Kalvaxis at the end of the season.
  • Fantastic Racism: Daisy laments that, while they don't get it as bad as some races, halflings are disdainfully viewed by many as sticky-fingered thieves.
  • Going Postal: Bud is a mailman who espouses revolutionary left-wing views, and later acts on them by shooting up a police station.
  • Minnesota Nice: The Cubbys have the stereotypical "yah-and-you-betcha" accent to go with their down-to-earth jobs and overall politeness.
  • Nice Guy: Bud and his wife Daisy are both extremely friendly to the kids, giving them a lift after they total Johnny Spells' stolen car and buying them ice cream at Besrar's. They also come to the rescue when the gang is arrested by Angela Worrell.
  • Working-Class Hero: Bud's a mailman and Daisy is a waitress, which probably helped to mold their political philosophies.
