Lilli

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lili1.png
"Um..."
Voiced (Sometimes) by: Sinikka Compart (German), Lucia Cifarelli (English)
The main protagonist of the game, Lilli is a sweet, helpful little girl who doesn't talk much. At the start of the story, she's trapped under the domineering thumb of Mother Superior Ignatz and inexplicably hated by almost everyone at the convent for constantly following the rules. The only person who seems to show any genuine love for Lilli is Edna, and when she ends up stuck in a dangerous situation, Lili must face a new challenge and learn to stand up for herself. But its easier said than done, especially since not everything about Lilli as as it seems...

Tropes applying to Lilli:

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Due to her being lethally clumsy, the other kids tend to either bully or stay away from her.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: It's clear that there's something wrong with Lilli. She hallucinates "gnomes" that paint over anything she doesn't like to see and according to the narrator she has some pretty disturbing thoughts now and again. If Dr. Marcel is to be believed, she even hallucinated a dead girl and a police officer to be her friends. Whether or not the last one is true, Lilli should definitely seek help.
  • Ambiguous Innocence: The game never makes it clear if Lilli really is as innocent as the narrator claims and just dangerously clutzy or if there's something much darker going on inside her head that not even she's aware of. "Stab Dr. Marcel" and "Set Aside The Knife" confirm that Lilli is sick, but "Contradict" ignores this question altogether.
  • Extreme Doormat: Lilli does whatever people tell her to, even before being brainwashed. She's so timid, she doesn't even have the heart to speak up for herself. You can potentially subvert this by choosing either the "Set Aside The Knife" or the "Contradict"-ending.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Has her hair tied up in two braids.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Lilli has blond hair and is as kind as they come. Maybe. The narration says she's just an innocent, clumsy kid, but act 1 consists of her accidentally murdering all of her classmates. It should be noted that most of them are Asshole Victims who bullied her in life. Two of the three endings have her subvert the trope, either by confirming that she really isn't as nice as she seems or by having her yell at everyone in the room to shut up and leaving in a frustrated huff afterwards.
  • Only One Name: Unlike with Edna, we never learn her last name.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: "Contradict" has her finally snap over being ordered around by everyone in the room resulting in her telling them all off and leaving them to resolve their petty squabbles by themselves.
  • Replacement Goldfish: It's possible that, after whatever happened to Harvey between the first game and this one, Lilli became this for Edna, considering that the latter never seems to mention him or even sound vaguely upset at his absence. When they are reunited later on, Edna sounds genuinely astonished, as if she hadn't expected to ever see him again. Then AGAIN, this is all depending on if Edna even exists at all.
    • It's heavily implied Edna sees her as replacement for Alfred also. Their personalities are kind of similar and in Edna's good-bye note she calls Lilly "Lillyfred".
  • Sarcasm-Blind: Lilli is so innocent she often doesn't even notice when someone is messing with her.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She is the well-behaved, quiet girly girl to Edna's rough, rebellious tomboy.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: While she's dutifully completing her assigned tasks and problems in her way at the convent, she accidentally causes the deaths (and one suicide) of every other child at the convent.
  • The Voiceless: Lilli is capable of speech, but everyone interrupts her before she can get more than a single word out (with one exception where she manages to tell Dr. Marcel something while under hypnosis via whisper that the audience cannot hear). It finally gets subverted in the Contradict ending, where she outright explodes at Doctor Marcel, Edna, and Gerret for all the crap they put her through.

Edna Konrad

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/edna4.png
"A psychological examination? Oh Lilli... I'm sure this is all about me."
Voiced by: Alianne Diehl (German), Jocasta Gottlieb (English)
An escaped patient from a mental asylum currently taking refuge in Ignatz' convent. Edna is Lilli's best friend, providing a constant cheery attitude about their situation and keeping spirits up with a macabre sense of humor. But when Edna's old enemy, Doctor Marcel, returns one day to shatter their peaceful life, her life starts to spiral into madness once more...

Tropes applying to Edna:

  • Adaptational Wimp: Edna in the first game was very much a doer and not the least bit afraid to stand up to Dr. Marcel or his goons. In this game she relies on Lilli for pretty much everything and doesn't even leave her bed out of fear of Dr. Marcel in Act 1. Probably because she's not the real Edna.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Is she the real Edna? Or just a hallucination, like Dr. Marcel claims? It's noteworthy that no one but Lily ever directly talks to her, she's never mentioned by name and every character who could be referring to her at certain points in the story uses vague language, pointing to them talking about someone else altogether. And she does appear as a hallucination alongside Gerret to discourage Lily from harming Dr. Marcel. None of the endings give a clear answer to this.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Lilly. She tries her best to cheer Lilli up when she's down and encourages her to break out of her shell more, despite Mother Superior Ignatz.
  • Demoted to Extra: The protagonist of the first game, now relegated to the role of side character. She flat-out disappears at the end of Act 1. And if Dr. Marcel is to be believed, she might never have been there at all.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She's the cheeky tomboy with attitude to Lilli's more reserved, polite girly girl.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Edna often encourages Lilly to slack off and go against the rules.
  • Troll: In a note in her hide-out she pretends to have been attacked by a giant tentacle monster. A few sentences later, she admits she was just messing around.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Lilli in the game. Though Lilli never actually talks, her reactions to Edna's jokes and suggestions bring her point across well enough.
  • Walking Spoiler: A bizarre one. Edna's presence in Harvey's New Eyes confirms that the "Harvey Ending" is canon... but then the Twist Ending reveals that the Edna we've been searching for throughout the entire game has been Dead All Along. At least, if Doctor Marcel is correct. We never find out if he is.
  • Whatever Happened to the Mouse?: As stated in Walking Spoiler above, we never find out if she was just imaginary, like Dr. Marcel claims, or actually there. If she was real we never find out what happens to her and Gerret after Lilli leaves them behind in Edna's old cell.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Edna's hair is dark purple.

Gerret Gordon Gardengore

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gerret_6.png
A mysterious young man who suddenly appeared one day in the convent, often seen sneaking in and out of strange places and watching the students from a distance. As it turns out, he's actually an agent sent to spy on the Mother Superior in order to prove that she's been mistreating her charges. But when Doctor Marcel gets involved with the situation, Gerret becomes Lilli's sole ally in her mission to help Edna and stop the Doctor's plans.

Tropes applying to Gerret:

  • Advertised Extra: For someone featured so prominently on the Box cover, he barely appears in the game. This is remarked on by Poki in the developer commentary.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Gerret's skin is grey.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Is he just a figment of Lilli's Imagination? Or is he real? This is more pronounced because, unlike Edna, we don't know how Lilli could have heard about him note .
  • Alliterative Name: His full name is Gerret Gordon Gardengore.
  • Badass in Distress: Dr. Marcel manages to capture him somewhere around the beginning of Act 2. Maybe.
  • The Comically Serious: He's very stiff and serious. His answer to Edna's Your Mom-joke really says it all.
    Edna: Your momma needs a plan!
    Gerret: My mother has a plan.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's incredibly dismissive of Lilli and like all adults in the game he never let's her talk. But unlike most of the other adults, he does care about her and just wants to see Dr. Marcel brought to justice. Isn't it a shame that he probably isn't real?
  • Knight in Sour Armor: He really is trying to help Lilli. Even if he's being a dick about it most of the time.
  • The Stool Pigeon: What Edna and Lilli suspect him to be, since he's always spying on everyone. Subverted, he's not doing it for Mother Superior Ignatz, but for his job as a police officer.
  • Vague Age: It's... somewhat ambiguous how old he is supposed to be. He's a police officer, meaning he's an adult, but he apparently looks young enough to be able to pass as a student in the convent. Though seeing as he might just be in Lilli's head anyway...
  • Whatever Happened to the Mouse?: The game never explicitly confirms that he's just in Lilli's head. If he's real, we have no clue what happened to him and Edna after Lilli left them behind in Edna's old cell.

     Convent 

In General

  • Asshole Victim: Lilli kills almost all of them by accident in Act 1. In life most of them were rude to her and ostracized her. Kind of a deconstructed example. They might not have been good people, but the majority of them were still kids and the rest were just people doing their jobs. When Lilli finds out about their deaths later in the game it is noticeably not played for laughs.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Their deaths by Lilli's hands are surpsingly brutal and border on graphic. Just to name a few: Freeman is eaten by termites, Memphis is blown up and Shy and Capu are crushed to death by a gargoyle statue.

Freeman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/freeman.PNG
A rebellious and rather arrogant boy who constantly belittles Lilli for how strictly she follows the convent's rules.

Tropes applying to Freeman

  • Delinquent Hair: Wears his hair in a pompadour and is unpleasant and rowdy.
  • Eaten Alive: You need to use honey to get the termites off the swing tree...unfortunately for Freeman, he's covered in honey. You can guess how his death happened.
  • Never My Fault: He blames Lilli for him falling into the well, even though he did it all on his own. Lilli even attempted to warn him away from it, but he took it as her telling him what to do and went in anyway out of spite.
  • Reverse Psychology: Invoked mostly by himself, funnily enough. Lilli will attempt to warn him from trying to get a key lying at the bottom of the well, but like most people in the game he will cut her off and state he knows it's not allowed and dangerous. But then he'll start to ponder how dangerous it could actually be. When Lilli leaves, you hear a splash and going back will show Freeman has mysteriously vanished. Though there are some strange sounds coming from the well...
  • Sarcasm Mode: Talking to him after getting him out of the well will have him sarcastically thank Lilli for her "great help" and reassuring her that if she'll ever need something from him, all she'll have to do is ask.

Birgit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/birgit.PNG
A diligent and ambitious girl, she is the top student at the convent school.

Tropes applying to Birgit:

  • Academic Alpha Bitch: She's certainly not shy about telling Lilli just how much smarter she thinks she is.
  • Break the Haughty: Birgit is the school's undisputed Teacher's Pet until Lilli causes her to mess up her embroidery assignment, earning her a severe scolding from the Mother Superior. This completely breaks her psychologically, to the point of sending her into a state of suicidal depression.
  • Driven to Suicide: She hangs herself minutes after losing her Teacher's Pet status.
  • Evil Redhead: Downplayed. She's not a villain, just a really unpleasant Academic Alpha Bitch.
  • Teacher's Pet: She is the most high-achieving and diligent student at the convent school, which earns her a degree of preferential treatment from the Mother Superior. This status is so important to her that losing it is enough to drive her to suicide.

Shawny

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shawny.PNG
A boy who thinks of himself as extremely tough, even though his actual behaviour doesn't quite line up with his self-image.

Tropes applying to Shawny

  • Bad People Abuse Animals: He admits to shooting at sparrows for fun in his free-time. When Lilli encounters him again near the well, he's attempting to set a cobweb on fire with a lighter.
  • The Bully: He takes Lilli's recipe from Mother Superior away, just because he doesn't like her. When confronted, he refuses to give it back, unless she proves to him that she's tough.
  • Dirty Coward: He seems to bully exclusively Lilli, the smallest, most timid child in the convent school.
  • Driven to Suicide: After seeing Lilli shoot an eagle from the sky, he becomes so traumatized that he smokes a whole pack of cigarettes at once and chokes on them.
  • Failed A Spotcheck: He's playing right next to Freeman's remains, but he never seems to notice them. Might be justified, as there's not that much left of Freeman to tell it's him.
  • Fat Bastard: He's chubby and a mean jerk who constantly bullies Lilli.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks he's the resident big shot, but he's really just a pathetic, snot-nosed bully.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He claims to smoke frequently to relax. Kind of subverted, as making him smoke is what kills him.

Memphis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/memphis.PNG
A very fearful and constantly nervous boy.

Tropes applying to Memphis:

  • The Fatalist: Given that he lives under the same roof as Lilli, it's pretty understandable he always thinks of the worst case scenario.
  • Irony: He refuses to leave the stove, because he thinks it's the only safe place in the entire convent. He dies in the stove when Lilli throws an aerial bomb inside and pulls out the pin that keeps it from exploding.
  • Nerd Glasses: He wears a pair of round spectacels and behaves like a stereotypical nerd.
  • Nervous Wreck: He's very easily frightened and more or less constantly on the verge of panicking.
  • Stutter Stop: He has a very severe stutter.

Capu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/capu.PNG
A friendly boy and one of the few people at the convent school who aren't constantly picking on Lilli.

Tropes applying to Capu:

  • Accomplice by Inaction: Lilli never calls him out on this (because she has a crush on him), but he didn't do anything to prevent Shawny from taking the recipe, aside from some mild protest. He also doesn't really help her get it back, though he does apologise for Shawny's behavior.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Asking Lilli to deliver a love letter from him to Shy, probably not even realizing that Lilli has a crush on him.
  • Nice Guy: He comes across as a friendly, kind-hearted guy.
  • Together in Death: Him and Shy get crushed to death by a gargoyle statue.

Shy and Suka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shy_and_suka.PNG
"Shibuya Power!" - "Shibuya Power!"
Two anime and manga fangirls who usually hang around in the dormitory while randomly shouting out catchphrases from their favourite series. Shy is generally the friendlier of the two, while Suka is more aggressive and arrogant.

Tropes applying to both of them:

  • Occidental Otaku: Both of them are big fans of the manga "Riot Girl". They qoute their heroine's catchphrase almost every other sentence and strive to become rebels like she is.
  • Oh, Crap!: The two of them (understandably) freak out when Lilli presents a live, blinking aerial bomb warhead to them.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Shy's hair is pink and Suka's is green.

Tropes applying specifically to Shy:

Tropes applying specifically to Suka:

  • High-School Hustler: Subverted. She'd certainly like to be a sleek rebel confounding the convent and it's rules, but she never actually does anything rebellious, aside from paying lip-service and spouting catchphrases.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Who in their right mind would swing on a tire swing-set that's hanging over a cliff? On a very old tree that looks like it can barely hold your weight? Predictably, this stupidity gets her killed when Lilli weakens the tree even further by cutting a good chunk of it out.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Implied. Shy doesn't seem as on board with being a rebel as Suka is, but always changes her tune pretty quickly once Suka urges her on.

Frank

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frank.PNG
An archeology enthusiast who's hell-bent on uncovering the Great Church Conspiracy.

Tropes applying to Frank:

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Not to the extend of Lilli or Edna, but he's trapped in his own little world most of the time.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: He's obsessed with the great Church Conspiracy and the templars.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: He talks a lot about templars and conspiracies, but anyone with any sort of knowledge in that field will notice he's making stuff up as he goes.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Sure Frank, use a tool that causes heavy vibrations while you're standing in front of a barely stabilized, gigantic cross. And keep drilling, even when you reach what looks like "some sort of anchoring". What could possibly go wrong?

Doris

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ingrid_9.PNG
The resident lunch lady. She has anger issues that she largely takes out on her canning jars.

Tropes applying to Doris:

  • Child Hater: She hates children with a burning passion and would like nothing more than to strangle every kid she sees.
  • Blatant Lies: The narrator describes her as a Jerk with a Heart of Gold and Lilli's best friend aside from Edna. She's very obviously neither.
  • Brawn Hilda: She's big, burly and unpleasant.
  • Evil Chef: She's in charge of the food in the convent and she's an ex-convict on probation.
  • Hidden Eyes: Her eyes are hidden beneath her bangs.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Subverted. Lilli apparently thinks she is one, but Lilli also makes up gnomes that paint corpses pink, so...
  • Would Hurt a Child: As she gleefully tells Lilli, she breaks all sorts of children-limbs whenever she's mad.

The Old Man

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_old_man.PNG
A weird old guy who's hanging out in the storage room.

Tropes applying to the Old Man:

  • Cloudcuckoolander: He goes on weird tangents whenever you talk to him. And for some reason he's hanging on a coat rack.
  • Scatterbrained Senior: He knows all sorts of stories - if he remembers them.
  • Senior Sleep Cycle: He'll wake up whenever Lilli tries to touch his old scout equipment, but then fall alseep again in the middle of a sentence.

Funny Earnest

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_clown.PNG
A clown who was hired by Mother Superior to lift the mood at the convent. He's pretty depressed.

Tropes applying to the clown:

  • A Degree in Useless: He has a degree in psychology and originally applied as a child therapist. Sadly, Mother Superior had already hired Dr. Marcel at that point.
  • Death by Irony: He gives Lilli a balloon wrench. A wrench she needs to unscrew the chandelier to get Edna's balloon...The chandelier Earnest just so happens to be sitting under.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He expresses great dislike for Dr. Marcel, stating that he wouldn't let the man near his children "even if [he] knew where they were".
  • Moon Logic Puzzle: In order to get to Edna's balloon, you have to ask him to make you a wrench balloon-animal. The narrator even lampshades how non-sensical that is.
  • Non-Ironic Clown: You wouldn't think so at first glance and with the reputation these games have, but yeah. He's just a professional clown. Nothing scary or immoral about him.

     Antagonists 

Mother Superior Ignatz

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mother_superior_ignatz.PNG
"I'm very disappointed in you, Lilli. Can you ever do anything right?"
Voiced by: Valerie Dolye (English)
The strict, child-hating Mother Superior in charge of the convent Lilli lives in.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: She pickled the guinea pig that was sent to her as a classroom pet in alcohol. And as a child she killed her pet tarantula by driving a nail through it's head. Downplayed, as she never intended to kill the tarantula. She just wanted to make it look like a unicorn.
  • Child Hater: She really doesn't like children. And she never gets tired of telling them so.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: As much of a child-hater as she may be, even she is taken aback by Dr. Marcel tazering Lilli.
  • Failed a Spot Check: She somehow fails to notice that Birgit hung herself, despite standing right in front of the body. She also never realizes that all the students except for Lilli are starting to disappear.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: For someone who preaches self-control as much as she does, she sure has a habit of blowing up at the slightest perceived provocation.
  • Nun Too Holy: She has very prominent anger issues, constantly verbally and physically abuses her charges and helps Dr. Marcel brainwash children.
  • Tough Love: It's implied that deep down, she believes her rough methods are the only thing that will help the children grow up. When Lilli performs a task to her satisfaction, she briefly ponders if she's been too harsh on the children and even considers calling the appointment with Dr. Marcel off. But then Lilli screws up again...
  • Verbal Tic: She stutters on the first syllable of a word sometimes. Especially when saying the word 'child'. Edna makes fun of it at the beginning of the game.

Dr. Marcel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_marcel.PNG
"Are you sure that's what you want to do?"
Voiced by: Thomas Fitschen (German), Colin Solman (English)
A psychologist, called to the convent to demonstrate his new method of character correction. He and Edna have bad blood between them.
  • Big Bad: He's the main antagonist of the game.
  • Break Them by Talking: He attempts to do this to Lilli at the end of the game, by revealing he knew all along she was responsible for the deaths back at the convent and that her friends Edna and Gerret are only in her head. Whether or not he succeeds depends on what choice the player makes.
  • Child Hater: His dislike of children is even stronger than the Mother Superior's.
  • The Dreaded: Apparently there exist stories about him. Dreadful stories.
  • Evil Cripple: He's one-eyed and in a wheelchair, but no less vicious than he was in the first game.
  • The Man Behind the Man: It's obvious that he's the one calling the shots between Mother Superior Ignatz and him.
  • Psycho Psychologist: His "character correction" is really just him brainwashing children into obedient slaves who can't say no to him. He later on does the same to Mother Superior Ignatz.
  • Slasher Smile: Breaks into an unnervingly wide grin when confronted by Lilli at the end of the game.
  • Walking Spoiler: To the first game. Him being alive but crippled confirms the ending in which Edna listens to Harvey as canon.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He knocks Lili out with a tazer the first time they meet for no reason other than that he felt like it.

Harvey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/harvey.PNG
Voiced by: Alexx Grimm (German), Jonathan Tilley (English)
Edna's former ragdoll rabbit, now hypnosis device used by Dr. Marcel for Hypnotherapy.
  • But Thou Must!: Or rather: But Thou Mustn't! Whenever Lilli attempts to go against a block, he will walk onto the screen and chastise her for it.
  • Brainwashing for the Greater Good: Dr. Marcel created him to install behavioral blocks in a person's mind to turn them away from doing bad things. Gets deconstructed a fair bit throughout the game, as most of the commands are stiflingly absolutist and hinder more than help Lilli.
  • Creepy Monotone: He delivers his commands in a robotic, mechanical voice.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Harvey is found and remade as a hypnosis device.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He regains his old personality when Lilli stitches his old eyes back onto his face.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: His titular new eyes have the devices used for the actual hypnosis in them.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The light diodes in the red eyes Dr. Marcel redesigned him with are used to hypnotize children. They also look pretty damn creepy.
  • Villain Has a Point: Deconstructed. When taken at face value, most of his behavioral blocks aren't that bad. They mostly instruct Lilli not to engage in dangerous behavior and prioritize her safety. But in Lilli's situation, commands like "You must not contradict adults" and "You must not lie" do far more harm than good. And then of course, there's the whole "taking away a child's free will and making her do things she doesn't want to"-thing.

     Demons 

In General

  • Alas, Poor Villain: If you think about it, most of them are just doing their jobs. They don't mean Lilli any harm, on the contrary. Too bad you need to destroy them to get around their blocks.
  • Back for the Finale: All of them make a return when Lilli has to beat Mother Superior in a Battle in the Center of the Mind.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Their voices are Harvey's voice, but artificially lowered to give them a Badass Baritone.
  • Noble Demon: Sure, they're annoying, but they genuinely just want to help Lilli be a good child.
  • Our Demons Are Different: They're referred to as demons, but they take a lot of forms, none of them especially demonic.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As the personification of Harvey's mental blocks, some of them share his piercing red eyes. Downplayed, as they never actively harm Lilli. They just keep her from doing stuff until she finds a way to get rid of them.

The Snowman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_snowman.PNG
"The fireplace is closed. Good children don't play with fire."
A living snowman. He enforces the "You must not play with fire"-block.
  • An Ice Person: A snowman who literally freezes up the fireplace to prevent Lilli from using it.
  • Big "NO!": After Lilli sets the wood beneath him on fire.
  • Hypocrite: Under no circumstances should Lilli get close to fire! Except when the thing that's burning is the cylinder on his head. Then she should absolutely risk her safety by taking it off of him. To top if off, just as she's done saving his hide, he smugly tells her that scenarios like this are the very reason she shouldn't play with fire.
  • Ignored Aesop: Lilli saves his life by doing exactly the opposite of what he told her to do: Touching a burning object. But instead of taking this as a lesson that sometimes there is a reason for a child to handle fire, he just takes the scenario as another example of why Lilli shouldn't get near fire.
  • I'm Melting!: When she gets fed up with his hypocrisy, Lilli just sets the wood he stands on on fire. He melts as a result.
  • Logical Weakness: He's a snowman, so of course the most effective way to get rid of him is to make a fire.
  • Snowlems: Of the Friendly-variety. He's a talking snowman who wants Lilli to stay away from fire.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first mental block Lilli has to circumvent.
  • Stationary Boss: He has no way to move from where he's standing.

The Spider

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_spider.PNG
"Didn't anyone ever tell you that you're not allowed to leave the school grounds? You must not contradict adults."
A gigantic spider who's nest blocks Lilli's way. It enforces the "You must not contradict adults"-block.
  • Call-Back: The way to defeat it requires you to remember Mother Superior's story about her childhood tarantula. You have to stick a rib on it's head using tar from the near-by tar pit. This will make it look like a unicorn, causing the gigantic Mother Superior to pick it up and walk away with it.
  • Fang Thpeak: It's fangs give it a prominent lisp when it speaks.
  • Giant Spider: A blue spider about Lilli's size.
  • Vampire Vords: It speaks in a prominent Dracula-accent. Even though it's not a vampire.

The Genie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_genie.PNG
"[..]I don't nee-nee-need th-this alcoholic *sneezes* devil's stu-stuff."
A genie who lives in a bottle of alcoholic medicine. He enforces the "You must not touch alcohol"-block.
  • Eating the Enemy: Lilli drinks him after he retreats into his bottle to cure himself.
  • Genie in a Bottle: He inhabits the bottle of AlcoFix Lilli acquires from the quack doctor in the Western Village. Sadly, he doesn't grant wishes.
  • Hypocrite: As long as he's in the bottle, he won't allow Lilli to drink from it, even though she's sick and needs the medicine. It contains alcohol after all. But when he gets the same disease she has, he immediately dives into the bottle to drink the medicine himself. Not only that, he ends up liking it, despite calling it devil's stuff earlier.
  • Irony: A being supposed to prevent you from drinking alcohol lives in a bottle containing a largely alcoholic beverage.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Twofold. You can get him to show himself by putting his bottle into a champagne bucket. This will cause him to leave the bottle and complain about the cold. It also gets him sick. Lilli can offer him her (used) handkerchief, leading to him contracting the illness she got from eating spoiled mayonnaise.

Justitia

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/justitia.PNG
"You must not lie. Lies are evil."
A demons who evokes the image of the goddess of justice. They enforce the "You must not lie"-rule.
  • Ambiguous Gender: They're modelled after the female Justitia and have a woman's name. But they have a male voice and look like the male Harvey.
  • Blind Justice: They wear a blindfold and fanatically enforce their ban.
  • Driven to Suicide: If Lilli proves that lying is good via Logic Bomb, they will run themselves through with their own sword.

The Wendigo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_wendigo.PNG
"I'm always on guard. And you should be too."
A creature from indian mythology that is blocking the entrance to a mine. It enforces the "You must not hang around dangerous places"-rule.
  • Evil Smells Bad: He apparently stinks worse than a Buffalo's butt.
  • Kill It with Fire: You defeat him by switching out his suntan lotion with hair removal cream. Once the ozone hole sets in, he'll be reduced to a pale thin version of himself, then ashes, which gets rid of his block.
  • NPC Roadblock: His function as the block that prevents Lilli from entering dangerous places.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: His reaction when he realizes Lilli messed with his lotion and he's going to be burned alive by the sun.
  • Wendigo: A rabbit-like creature with horns and fangs. He still looks suspiciously like Harvey.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Downplayed. He briefly chastises Lilli for disposing of the other demons, but drops the topic relatively quickly.

The Dragon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_dragon.PNG
"Well, you're very brave to get so close to me. Can't you see my teeth, my spikes and my sharp claws? Didn't anyone ever tell you to stay away from sharp objects?"
A big dragon sitting behind an iron gate. It enforces the "You must not use sharp objects"-rule.
  • Didn't Think This Through: After accidentally stabbing itself, it begs Lilli to pull the spike out. She does and it bleeds out, due to the dragon not having anything to cover the wound with.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: It keeps drawing attention to it's sharp spikes and claws. You get rid of it by ticling it with a feather, then tricking it into impaling it's paw on it's spiked tail. Pulling the spike out of the wound then causes it to bleed to death.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: A dragon that personifies a mental block.

Click here to see him with his hood down 
A withdrawn traveller who keeps stalling the war with the goblins. In reality, he's the block who enforces the "You must not lose control"-rule.
  • Berserk Button: He has sensitive ears, so loud noises really piss him off.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He acts like a kind, helpful guide when around the rest of the group. But when Lilli confronts him, he gloats about how he has everyone wrapped around his finger and how there's nothing Lilli can do about it.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: To Lilli, anyhow. Even with his hood pulled up, it's painfully obvious he's one of the demons. He all but confirms it if Lilli talks to him.
  • Wizard Beard: He has a beard under his hood and uses sorcery for attacks during the last Battle in the Center of the Mind in Mother Superior's brain.
  • Your Head Asplode: His head turns red, then explodes into bloody goo after he calls the rest of the group to arms.
