A stereotypical Mad Scientist, and proprietor of Germahn Laboratories, complete with accent.
- Author Appeal: In-universe reason for what Germahn Labs produces. Also out-of-universe, probably.
- The Bus Came Back: Eventually returns... in the main storyline, talking to Arthur.
- Character Alignment: Self-explained Chaotic Good. While he causes chaos, he makes sure nobody is hurt.
- Demoted to Extra: Has been largely absent in later Q&As.
- Dirty Old Man: Has many things that can lead to Fanservice.
- Herr Doktor: Stereotypical proprietor of Germahn Laboratories
- Mad Scientist: His job when not providing exposition or experimenting on his employees.
- Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Explains using Amanda as a guinea pig.
- Mister Descriptor: Dr. Germahn is a stereotypical German scientist.
- Mr. Exposition: Was this early on, before Mr Verres took over.
Dr Germahn's lab assistant. Perky, happy, and eternal victim of Dr. Germahn's experiments, almost always involving shrinking.
- Character Development: While she's still a bit of a Genius Ditz, she's much more professional in manner, and more knowledgeable about the rules of magic in the EGS verse in the later Q&A's. Sometimes she even tries to control Lisa's Cloud Cuckoo Lander moments instead of joining in. Example.
- Genius Ditz: While Dr Germahn and her roomate Lisa both cite she's got brains, Charlie Brown has better luck seeing through Lucy's talks on holding a football than Amanda has avoiding testing out shrinking potions/formulae/sodas/anything.
- Hot Scientist: Attractive, and working on recognition as a scientist; her last appearance showed her testing out her own shrinking formula.
- Mad Scientist: Apparently, she learns from Dr. Germahn. Also? In DES Comics she made the Velocitoaster.
- Professor Guinea Pig: The above test subject? Herself.
- Yaoi Fangirl: She has an awful lot of fun describing a hypothetical storyline involving Elliot and Justin feeling attracted to one another.
Amanda's roommate, and prospective lawyer. Apparently has a crush on Amanda, but she's reluctant to voice it where Amanda can hear.
- Ambiguously Gay: Tried to be this. She wasn't too good at being all that ambiguous, and it has finally been confirmed that a) Lisa likes girls, b) Amanda knows Lisa likes girls, c) the charade was kept up for the sake of a running gag (whether Amanda knows that Lisa likes her specifically is still unknown).
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Literally, in this strip.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She glomps Chika in sheer joy when Raven accepts Amanda's offer to go on a date.
- Shipper on Deck: Of Amanda and Raven, despite the fact that she has romantic feelings for Amanda.
- Crazy-Prepared/No-Sell: Every time Lisa tries to pull some prank on Chika or with her assistance, it's turned back on Lisa. Also, not going to make more Fanservice than she wants to.
- Only Sane Man: Her science may be mad, but she isn't.
- Situational Sexuality: She raised her hand when Lisa and Amanda questioned whether anyone "experiments" to test their sexuality. However, she did not reveal the results of those tests.Chika: Oh, don't look so shocked. I approach everything scientifically.
Author Avatar. Rarely shows up, but there are times. The only times he hasn't been drawn as a squirrel guy is when he was a squirrel girl.
- Ambiguous Gender Identity: Once answered a question about his gender identity with a literal Shrug of God in writing form, so the jury's still out, adding the only reason he defaults to he/him pronouns is avoid answering questions he doesn't want asked.
- Author Avatar: Almost any time he's shown, it's as the artist/writer.
- Beast Man: He's never seen in human form, instead appearing as an anthropomorphic squirrel creature.
- Loophole Abuse: Once turned himself into a girl to escape a hammer beatdown, since the hammers didn't work on women.
- The Rant: Here's one.
Personification of Dan's writer's block. A living block with some animal features. Makes it harder for people to write in its presence. Is sometimes the protagonist in non-canon NP storylines.
- Lazy Bum: It has a cat-like habit of sitting on Dan's desk and not moving until Dan figures out how to continue his story.
Here because where else will we put it? When there is nudity, such as during the NP story where Grace, Sarah, and Ellen are making a sexy male form, an invisible angelic tweeting bird flies between the fourth wall and the readers.
- Scenery Censor: Is a living one, and ironically exists to keep the author from having to resort to this or awkward and contrived camera angles.
