The Characters, as they appear in Everywhere And Nowhere.

    open/close all folders 

Main Pair

     Anne Guildenstern 
The female lead of the comic. A seemingly flighty girl with an adventurous heart, there's more to her than meets the eye.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern never really get any backstory, or even proper first names, in the original Shakespeare play. Here, they're the main characters, and their names are William and Anne.
  • Complete Immortality: She and Rosencrantz are unable to age and can't be killed by any means.
  • Gender Flip: Guildenstern is typically presented as male in Hamlet productions, but here, she's all woman.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's blonde and is a fairly good person, though she does have a dark side, as seen in both Hamlet itself (when she and Rosencrantz get tricked into betraying Hamlet to King Claudius), and in this comic, where she and Rosencrantz have the potential to become the brutal dictators of all reality.
  • Lady of Adventure: Embodies the spirit of the trope.
  • Last-Name Basis: She and Rosencrantz tend to refer to each other by their last names.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Essentially is this for Rosencrantz.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She's a lot smarter than she seems.
  • Plucky Girl: Oh, definitely.
  • Ship Tease: Oh so much with Rosencrantz.
  • Spirited Young Lady: Seen as this by Castle Hamlet in her native time.
     William Rosencrantz 
The male lead of the comic. The grounded and responsible one, Rosencrantz is concerned with the potential toll immortality could take on the human mind.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Like Guildenstern, he never receives so much as a first name in the Shakespeare play, but here, his name is William and he's the co-lead alongside Guildenstern.
  • Complete Immortality: He and Guildenstern are unable to age and can't die by any means.
  • Evil Me Scares Me: He's terrified by the possibility of turning into his evil Future Self.
  • Last-Name Basis: He and Guildenstern refer to each other by their last names, despite being close friends and near-lovers.
  • Ship Tease: A ship-ton with Guildenstern.

Crownright Academy

     Dr. Charles 
  • Japanese Delinquents: He's the leader of a delinquent gang, under the employ of Dr. Charles, who wants to use him to coerce girls into giving him sexual favors.

Historical Figures

  • Anything That Moves: He's pretty aggressive in his flirtations, and will flirt with basically anything.
  • Bishōnen
  • The Casanova: Never seen without beautiful women (and men) hanging on him like decorations.
  • Depraved Bisexual: He's interested in both men and women, and is a traitorous sleazebag.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady
  • Easily Forgiven: After starting a war between Athens and Sparta, betraying Athens to Sparta, and then betraying both of them to the Persians, all the Athenians have to say to him is that they missed him.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Anne teleports him to the present day in order to save him from an assassination attempt.
  • The Hedonist: He loves drinking, sex, and throwing lavish parties. Personal pleasure is the reason he does anything, really.
  • It Amused Me: He steals all the penises from every statue of Hermes in Athens as a gag, and this is the thing that gets him put on trial rather than the fact he sold out Athens to both the Spartans and the Persians.note 
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He does care about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, despite his traitorous ways.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Well, to the people of Greece, anyway.
  • Welcome Back, Traitor: The welcome he gets when he returns to Greece.
     Julius Caesar 
     Albert Einstein 
     Oda Nobunaga 
  • Cain and Abel: The story presents him as the Abel to his brother Oda Nobukatsu'snote  Cain, but in real life, neither one of them were much of an Abel.
     Leonardo Da Vinci 
     Charles Darwin 
     Marie Antoinette 

Spoiler Characters

     Future Rosencrantz 
A version of Rosencrantz from a possible future in which he and Guildenstern went insane and now rule all of time with an iron fist.
  • A God Am I: He thinks so, and he wants present-day Rosencrantz to think so too.
  • Complete Immortality: Like Present Rosencrantz, although he's let it go to his head.
  • The Emperor: Of a dystopian Bad Future. He seems to be setting himself up as the Big Bad.
  • Eternal Love: With Future Guildenstern, but it's not pretty.
  • Evil Costume Switch: He now wears all black and has white hair.
  • Evil Me Scares Me: Present Rosencrantz is terrified by the possibility that one day, he'll turn into Future Rosencrantz.
  • God-Emperor: He considers himself one (and calls himself this verbatim), but Present Rosencrantz disagrees.
  • Immortality Immorality: Being immortal turned him and Guildenstern evil, eventually.
  • It Amused Me: His motivation for doing anything... or, rather, because it amused Guildenstern.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He's willing to do anything for his Guildenstern, although it's downplayed since he seems pretty evil all on his own. A flashback reveals to us that he turned evil in the first place out of a desire to please Guildenstern, and it was all downhill from there.
  • Slow Transformation: In a flashback, the tips of his hair start to turn white when he decides he'd do anything for his Guildenstern.
  • Unholy Matrimony: He and Future Guildenstern are a couple... but it isn't pretty.
  • Unreliable Narrator: He tells present-day Rosencrantz that his only options are to turn into him, or else be sealed away in a laboratory to become a test subject until the end of time. Given that he tries to murder Alcibiades when the latter suggests that there's a third possibility, he's probably not telling the truth.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Differentiating him from Present Rosencrantz.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: He claims that this is true, but given that he tries to murder Alcibiades when the latter tries to convince Rosencrantz it isn't, he's probably lying.
     Future Guildenstern 
A version of Guildenstern from a possible future in which she and Rosencrantz went insane and now rule all of time with an iron fist.
     Good Future Guildenstern 
An enigmatic, future version of Guildenstern from what is apparently yet another alternate timeline, where she did not turn evil but is without Rosencrantz.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She saves William from the void beyond time after he is trapped there by Future Rosencrantz.
  • But Now I Must Go: After rescuing William, she leaves, telling him that she missed him more than he can ever know.

How well does it match the trope?
