     Main characters 

Amy Gumm



The Wizard

The Tin Woodsman

The Lion

The Scarecrow


  • The Dragon: Is this to Dorothy. So it seems - but she is still The Dragon to the Nome King.
  • Grand Theft Me: Apparently does this to Glamora... or reverses it when Glamora does it to her.

Dorothy Gale

The Nome King

  • Call-Back: It's explained that he tunneled under the Deadly Desert - which was an event in the Oz books.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Comes from the land of Ev, not Oz.
  • Walking Spoiler: Explaining much of the tropes about him spoils a lot.


     The Order of the Wicked 

Glamora, Glinda's identical twin sister:

  • Evil Counterpart: She introduces herself to Amy as the "Wicked" witch to Glinda's "Good" witch.
  • Good Counterpart: To Glinda. Somewhat.
  • Grand Theft Me: Apparently attempts this to Glinda - or it's reversed on her. It's ambiguous who's really in control.


Grandma Gert

Jelia Jamb

  • Continuity Nod: Is indeed the same Jelia Jamb from the second Oz book.
  • The Mole: IS this for the Order of the Wicked.


Amy's Mother

Madison Pendleton

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: Teen mother, so justified.
  • Audience Surrogate: Somewhat by the later books where she acts as a straight person to the weirdness of Oz and Ev.
  • Fallen Princess: After she had her baby, her friends pretty much threw her off their social ladder to the bottom. Ouch.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In Yellow Brick War, Madison reveals that she was the one who set up the shrine for Amy in the school, she came to greet her first when she returned, apologised for her behaviour, and asked her forgiveness.
  • Trapped in Another World: At the end of Yellow Brick War.

How well does it match the trope?
