Go To

Francis

Voiced by: Ulrich Tukur (German), Enrique Mederos (Mexican Spanish), Jeff Harding (English)
  • Nice Guy: The only decent and peaceful cat in the story besides Felicity, who is unfortunately brutally murdered shortly after Francis meets her.

  • Phrase Catcher: Often called a "clever shit" (klug Scheiße) by other cats; he eventually adopts the phrase as his own at the end.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: At one point, he gives a long and very snarky one to Kong.

Bluebeard

Voiced by: Mario Adorf (German), Graham Parker (English)
  • Big Eater: He loves eating on the job frequently, especially liver and codfish. Francis calls him out on this a couple of times.
  • Catchphrase: He often says "Shit yes!" in the novel.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Francis tells him at one point that the murders and the Claudandus sect can lead to something big happening. Bluebeard (who's feeling hungry at the moment) asks if it's a fresh piece of fish and makes a very funny grin.
  • Handicapped Badass: He talks down Kong at one point, despite being blind in one eye and having a mangled left paw.

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Best portrayed when he defended Francis to a much bigger Kong.

Pascal

Voiced by: Klaus Maria Brandauer (German), Peter Marinker (English)

Felicity

Voiced by: Mona Seefried (German), Mónica Manjarrez (Mexican Spanish), Tamsin Hollo (English)

Kong

Voiced by: Wolfgang Hess, Bob Sessions (English)
  • The Bully: He loves throwing his weight around, quite literally at times.
  • The Brute: A hulking bullying cat who has no problem harassing the neighborhood cats.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Not really "evil", but comes pretty close. The murder of Solitaire, one of his girlfriends, made Kong want to find who was responsible and rip out his limbs.
  • Gonk: He's nominally a Himalayan, but such a hulking, fangy brute has more in common with a smilodon then a domestic cat.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Ultimately comes out with the horrifying death of Solitaire, his mate, causing him to do a Heel–Face Turn, forget about menacing the protagonists and turn all his energy into finding the murderer.
  • Meaningful Name: He's the biggest cat and named after the biggest beast in fictional history.

Joker

Voiced by: Ulrich Wildgruber (German), William Roberts (English)
  • Death Seeker: He lets Claudandus kill him to prevent their secrets from getting out.
  • Pet the Dog: Yeah, he's a total crackpot, but he did take in and raise Isaiah.

Isaiah

Voiced by: Helge Schneider (German), Ian Tyler (English)

Claudandus/Pascal

  • Affably Evil: Even after being exposed as the Big Bad, he still treats Francis like an equal and remains polite.
  • Fantastic Racism: His experiences have convinced him that all of humanity is irredeemably evil deep down.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He started out as an orphan cat who became Preterius' lab subject. After months of torture, he kills his master and sets out to remake the current cat population.
  • Handicapped Badass: Despite being an old cat dying of cancer, stated to be a few months ahead of the reaper, he does manage to ambush and seriously injure Bluebeard and fights like he's got nothing to lose against Francis.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: He believes this firmly, displayed when Francis tells Claudandus that there are good humans in the world, and he screams that there are no good humans.
  • Living Legend: To the religious fanatical cult led by Joker.
  • The Reveal: Pascal is Claudandus.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He screams with pure fury at Francis for believing that there are good humans in the world. Then he decides to stop talking and kick some tail.
