    Peter Friedkin 

Peter Friedkin:

Played by: Miles Fisher
  • Ax-Crazy: At the climax.
  • Composite Character: If the series couldn't get any Omen-esque enough, Peter at the climax eventually fulfills the role of that of the Anti-Christ's protectors (Mrs. Baylock, Ann Thorn, etc.) who are the Big Bad's disciples who acts as the direct human antagonists.
    • Interestingly enough, both Peter and Mrs. Baylock both die in a kitchen when attempting to kill the protagonist, who kills him/her with cooking utensils (Mrs. Baylock by carving fork and Peter by skewer).
    • Additionally, the way he dies in the premonition by having a bunch of poles coming down on him not only nods to Father Brennan's death (who only had one pole speared him) in the first Omen film, but also ironically how Ann Thorn kills the second Omen film's protagonist Richard by stabbing him with three of the Daggers of Megiddo all at once.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Already had a bit of a downplayed Jerkass air to him before he goes crazy.
  • Dirty Coward: At the climax, he tries to kill Sam and Molly to save his own skin.
  • The Dragon: Becomes this for Death. Death, however, has a sense of honour, so the Jerkass dies anyway.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Peter tells to his friends how he had the opportunity to kill random persons on the street, without any repercussion, stealing their remaining lifetime, but he refrained from doing so, because he couldn't see a reason for them deserving to die. His friends are much relieved. For a very short time, though.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Betrays his remaining friends and tries to kill them to appease Death. Death, who has a sense of honour - even if it is a twisted and maniacal one - decides he won't have that and Peter goes out too!
  • The Heavy: He is the only direct physical antagonist in the series, as Death never had a physical form and attacks protagonists in staged freak accidents unlike Peter who just outright tries to kill his remaining friends by his own direct hand.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gets impaled with a large skewer by Sam to stop him killing Molly.
    • This is also how he dies in the premonition. A bunch of poles would have come down on him, with one of the poles stabbing him in the head.
  • In the Back: Where Sam impales him.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: After Candice's death.
  • Leave No Witnesses: Tries to kill Molly after he shoots and kills Agent Block. But Sam stops him before he can.
  • Sanity Slippage: After Candice's death.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Near the end of the movie.
  • Walking Spoiler: There's a reason most of his character tropes are censored.

    Agent Jim Block 

Agent Jim Block

Played by: Courtney B. Vance
  • Agent Scully: Towards the whole "Death-is-following-us" thing. Subverted as the film goes on.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • By-the-Book Cop
  • In the Back: Shot by Peter, who claims his life force to avoid Death; Block was the person investigating the bridge collapse, meaning he wasn't involved with the collapse himself and was therefore never in danger of dying.

    Olivia Castle 

Olivia Castle

Played by: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
  • Disney Villain Death: After the botched LASIK surgery, she stumbles out a window and falls onto a car.
  • Eye Scream: Due to a malfunctioning LASIK machine.
  • Hope Spot: After getting out of the laser machine, she is frazzled, distressed and blinded in one eye but otherwise alright. And then she trips up, falls through a window and falls to her death.
  • Jerkass
  • Ms. Fanservice: Considered one of the hottest characters of the series.
  • Red Herring: At first, the audience expects Olivia to die from the haywire LASIK machine. Instead, they get thrown a curveball when she dies as a result of stepping her heel on a teddy bear's eye, which popped out earlier in the scene. She loses her balance and falls through the window and onto a car below.
  • The Rival: To Candice Hooper.

  • Mean Boss: You wouldn't really want to be under his wing...unless you liked being scolded.
  • Wrench Whack: How he dies.

    Roy Carson 

Roy Carson

Played by: Brent Stait

    Isaac Palmer 

Isaac Palmer

Played by: P. J. Byrne
  • Asshole Victim: Makes a couple insults to the acupuncturist prior to her leaving the room, plus she doesn't like him bringing his phone in. She's the last person he ever sees, literally, and the place she puts his phone plays a part when it rings a second time.
  • Death by Racism: Makes a racist joke towards his acupuncturist and a Buddha statue, saying she can't understand him because she's Chinese, and then makes a "2 million people can't be Wong" snark. Death, who has a sense of honour and integrity, albeit a warped and twisted one, decides to take revenge and Isaac dies via the Chinese Buddha figure falling on his head.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Wears glasses except for his death scene, and isn't particularly a nice guy.
  • Human Pincushion: Was undergoing acupuncture treatment at the time of his death, and when his bed collapses, it drives the needles too far into his body; this helps with his eventual death.
  • Kill It with Fire: Subverted. Despite noticing a stand catching on fire and him knocking candles onto ointment that spreads the fire, he dies under the falling Buddha statue, and never suffers anything from the flames, which died down on both the stand and the ointment.
  • Your Head Asplode: Crushed under a Buddha ornament.
