This is character sheet for the characters that appear in Gloomverse. May contain spoilers, notably about countries of origin.
- Fantastic Racism: It is very common in Gloomverse to hate those without magic, as well as Inversians in particular.
Assistant AKA Rylie AKA Royletta Greenwitch Biv
A teenage girl who gets kicked out of her house after a fight with her parents about her not possessing magic while everyone else does, she serves as the protagonist and heroine of the story. After a pleasant (or not so pleasant) turn of events comes her way, she is hired by Wallis to be his assistant for his magic shows. As Characterization sets in, she becomes the Only Sane Man of the cast.
- Action Girl: With all the training Wallis has her do, it's no surprise she'd become this.
- Ambiguously Brown: Her parents and she are noticeably darker than most of the cast.
- An Arm and a Leg: She loses a leg after the fight with Cakegirl.
- Badass Normal: Has no powers of her own, but still kicks ass. Eventually subverted when she gets her hat during the Cakegirl arc's climax.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Assistant is a nice girl most of the time, but piss her off...
- The Determinator: Wants to be seen as equal to someone who has magic, so she's prone to this.
- Despair Event Horizon: After seeing all of her friends disappear or seemingly die, Assistant reaches this.
- Dreaming of Times Gone By: Since gaining magic, she dreams of events from a thousand years in the past every night.
- Fangirl: Of Wallis. Before meeting him, at least.
- Forced to Watch: Can only sit there and hold Seaweed as Cakegirl tries to break her wand, causing Seaweed to double over and writhe in agony.
- Handicapped Badass: After losing her leg.
- Meaningful Name: Royletta Greenwich Biv, AKA RGB, and the acronym of the colors of the rainbow, roygbiv. She has rainbow magic.
- She also uncannily resembles the green-haired Mancer Prisma. Her middle name is Greenwitch. While their exact relationship is unclear, the connection is undeniable.
- Multicolored Hair: Wallis forces rainbow-colored dreads on her after he hires her.
- Not So Above It All: While she is significantly more mature and grounded than some of her friends, she gets her share of weird moments as well.
- Only Sane Man: Compared to Wallis and Harold? Definitely.
- Perky Goth: Her fashion sense and attitude paint her as one.
- Ship Tease: With Harold, and some with Wallis. Also Nim.
- Talking in Your Dreams: To Prisma; while everyone else in the dream seems to be an illusion, she recognizes Rylie and addresses her by name.
A famous magician who hires Assistant after she is kicked out of her house. While he is very talented and handsome, it quickly becomes very clear that he is not all that he seems.

- Big Ego, Hidden Depths: Turns out his extravagant confidence is mostly an act.

- The Fighting Narcissist: VERY aware of his good looks.
- Flying on a Cloud: His magic allows him to do this. Uses this when looking for Harold in the second chapter.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Appears to fly off the handle at the slightest inconvenience.
- How the Mighty Have Fallen: At the start of the comic, he's more popular and beloved than the president of his own country, but after the Magic Show arc, the fact that he was sheltering an Inversian is made public, and this combined with his own disappearance causes him to lose most of his fame and status. He probably shouldn't have snubbed said president when she wanted in on his magic show.
- Jerkass: A defining character trait of his.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his attitude, he genuinely cares for Harold , Purple, Assistant, and Evets. Even though he neglected to learn the names of the last two for weeks after employing them.
- This becomes especially obvious when he invites Hobo to watch his magic show, despite being outwardly disgusted by him before.
- Large Ham: He tends to be very melodramatic.
- Like Brother and Sister: Affectionately calls Assistant "little sis" while she's in a coma.

- Sibling Rivalry: With Harold, especially in the beginning.
- Warts and All: He's idolized by much of the nation and thought of as a nice and generous person. In reality, he's a controlling and rude Jerkass who seems to enjoy tormenting and making fun of Assistant and Harold.
- Your Worst Nightmare: Cakegirl claims that she will give him this.
- You Can't Go Home Again: After the Cakegirl arc, he can't return to Gloomverse unless he wants to be arrested for hiding an Inversian.
Wallis's brother. Wallis is famous and loved by the whole nation, while he himself lives in a cardboard box.

While Harold is more levelheaded than Wallis, he is still a complete weirdo himself.
- Adorable Evil Minions: The Lemon Kids living inside his hat.

- Deadpan Snarker: Definitely, at first, though less so as he warms up to his new housemates.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He has black hair and red eyes, even wearing all black at one point, but he's hardly an evil person.
- Don't Tell Mama: Wallis threatens to tell their mom about Harold stealing money from him unless he works for him.
- It's implied that Harold also didn't tell Petunia he was homeless, as she notes that she never knows how he's doing.
- Floating Limbs: Harold's arms and legs are invisible, due to Wallis using magic on him as a child, although magic isn't supposed to affect living beings.

- Real Men Wear Pink: Sleeps with a stuffed animal, which can and has been taken hostage against him.

- Ship Tease: With Assistant, and some with Seaweed.
- Shrinking Violet: Has bouts of shyness.
- Sibling Rivalry: With Wallis, at first.
As Wallis's best friend, she is also a famous magician (though not as popular as Wallis), and one of the few people who can actually manage to keep Wallis grounded. She's very chill and laid back, she can come across as rude or impolite to people who don't know her very well.
- Action Girl: As a famous magician like Wallis, it's no question that she'd have to be very talented.

A homeless man with a strong addiction to candy. Hangs around Harold, due to Harold's candy powers. Ends up living at Wallis's house.
- Affably Evil: For a feared Dark Overlord, he's pretty nice...

- Hidden Depths: He is revealed in the Midnight chapter to be Wallis and Harold's long lost father Amadeus, and all but stated to be the Dark Overlord!
- Kindhearted Simpleton: Due to his lack of intelligence, he sees the world more innocently than the rest of the cast. Subverted. It seems his naive demeanor is mostly an act. He's still kind, though.

The former assistant of Wallis, she has magic related to bakery sweets and loves everything cute and pink. After being fired due to her unwillingness to work and bratty attitude, she develops a grudge against Wallis and Assistant, vowing to destroy them.

- Color-Coded Patrician: Royals and their regents are the only ones who are allowed to wear the color yellow.

- Flying on a Cloud: Stratoversians use their hair as a medium and acquire cloud hair. They can then use it to fly. Somehow.
- Punny Name: Most Stratoversians are named after weather-related things or cloud formations.
- Shock and Awe: Stratoversians all seem to share Weather Magic, which notably permits to shoot lightning. Indigo reveals this happens because they are brainwashed from birth to love weather and yearn to fly. Since the magic one gains is dependant on one's interests, they all gain the same magic.
A "popular" DJ who is bribed by Madame President to sneak into Wallis's show and help ruin his reputation. He thinks Madame President has a thing for him. (Also a huge insecure dork.)
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Has indigo skin. He didn't always, though.

- Jerkass: Has flimsy morals, at best. Sees no issue with outing an Inversian refugee to throw dirt on Wallis, though he only does it because he was asked to.

- Friendless Background: Implies this as one reason why he doesn't regret leaving his home country.

- Friend to All Children: Roughhouses playfully with Alto's grandkids despite having grim news on her mind.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: She's first seen on a diplomatic mission, after all.
- Would Hurt a Child: Downplayed because nobody is happy about it, but she agrees to kill Rylie for being too dangerous.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Odd example in that their skin seems to be flat-out white. Justified in-universe, as Inversians are easily blinded by most colors if they had pink or brown skin, for instance, they would be unable to look at each other.
- Art Shift: The Inversian landscape is "drawn" by mashing edited pictures of mountains and North Korean cities. It's beautiful, but jarring compared to the usual lineless digital art of the environments.
- Black Eyes of Evil: Inversians have terrible reputation in Gloomverse, as well as black and white eyes, allegedly because they are too sensitive to color. The result, for most Gloomversians, is this trope.
- Dehumanization: Inversian authorities teach that magicians are subhuman monsters who only deserve a Mercy Kill.
- False Utopia: Inversians are meant to believe the rigidity of their society is necessary, but Xela is quick to point out being forced into a job your whole life, with no say on the matter, is unnecessarily harsh.
- Sdrawkcab Name: Almost all Inversians seem to have these.
The Judge AKA Ylil
The Judge of Inverse. Though how she came to this position is unknown, she appears to be the country's leader. She has chosen to break decades of silence between Inverse and the rest of the world, for the sake of finding two "terrorists" who escaped Inverse.

- Eye Colour Change: Apparently, they used to be regular Inversian eyes. No longer.
- Eye Scream: She implies that she had her eyes replaced with someone else's, which lets her see color like non-Inversians can.
- Flat "What": Her first reaction to Indigo.Indigo: Yo I like this white n black chess look you got goin gurl <3Judge: ...what.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Downplayed, as they are both competent, but she is the responsible to Yma's foolish.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: Implied by Yma's brief flashback in Locks, where we see two barefoot children standing by a fallen relative, likely dead.
- The Not-Love Interest: Double Subverted. First, Indigo flirts with her, but, while she agrees to go on a date with him, she deconstructs his flirting attempts and hires him as her guide; then, they bond during the Date chapter; only to kiss during The Indigo Experience and separately realize that they don't seem to have romantic interest in each other.
- Icy Blue Eyes: Her new eye color, which is quite shocking In-Universe. She usually wears dark glasses, but takes them off when she intends to chill someone to the bone.
- Just the First Citizen: Her official title is simply "Judge" of her country, though she has been referred to as "supreme leader", confirming that it is, in fact, the highest position.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: In-universe example. The Judge of Inverse appears to be quite feared, though it doesn't stop tabloids from gossiping about her.
- Organ Theft: Her eyes.
- Sdrawkcab Name: As almost all Inversians so far. She's Lily spelled backwards.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Justified. She acts cold due to her Inversian upbringing and position.
- The Stoic: Because of her Inversian upbringing, she rarely shows any emotion.

- Ambadassador: Her title.
- Conditioned to Accept Horror: Her society conditioned her to believe rejecting anyone who can't fit in is necessary to avoid societal collapse.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Downplayed, as they are both competent. The foolish to the Judge's responsible, in that she is much more impulsive and anxious.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: Implied by her brief flashback in Locks, where we see two barefoot children standing by a fallen relative, likely dead.
- Hot-Blooded: Impulsive and seems quite passionate about her duty to the Judge.
- Idiot Hair: The best way to find her among other Inversians!
- Innocently Insensitive: Both the offender and the recipient; due to Inverse's social standards being very different from Gloomverse's, she frequently offends Gloomversians, or takes offence at their own innocent actions.Yma: So clearly, the glasses must be for vision difficulties. That, or you wear them to mock me.
- Nepotism: Turns out she's related to the Judge; they're sisters.
- No Poker Face: Despite being an Inversian, who are typically and culturally encouraged to be The Stoic, she seems incapable of not displaying her emotions for everyone to see.
- No Social Skills: Appears evident when she meets with Madam President. Justified in that Inverse's social norms are very different from Gloomverse's.Yma: We have finished with the required "small talk". Let's get to business.
- Sdrawkcab Name: As almost all Inversians so far. She's Amy spelled backwards.
- Stubborn Hair: She is extremely frustrated with her hair, which refuses to be tamed.
Evets AKA the GuardWallis' bodyguard, who turned out to be an Inversian man hiding his skin tone.
- Clark Kenting: He kept the traditional Inversian suit and sunglasses, so his only disguise was makeup to hide his stark white skin.
- Fantastic Racism: Twofold. On one hand, he is discriminated against by most Gloomversians. On the other, he himself struggles with it.Evets: I've been told my whole life that magic is evil. That magicians are corrupted forms. Subhuman, even. That... "putting you down" would be a mercy killing.
- Hidden Depths: The grumpy unnamed bodyguard turned out to be a traumatized Inversian refugee who Wallis decided to help...
- Hidden in Plain Sight: A refugee hiding as... the bodyguard of the most famous person in the country.
XelaAn Inversian who ran away to Steamverse six years ago. They own a restaurant and a hotel.
- Freudian Slip: "Tour I mean. Visitors."
- Gold Digger: In a non-romantic way. The first thing they do, upon hearing Virga is arriving soon, is to try to endear themself to her.Xela: If I happen to make a good impression on a powerful foreign leader, you could hardly blame me.
- Hidden Depths: Their backstory makes it clear their current easygoing personality is recent.
- Hospitality for Heroes: Exploited. Xela only agreed to let the gang rest for free because Joe noticed the Prince of Stratoverse was with them, and they want to get cookie points with Stratoverse royalty.
Shaman Cocos AKA Cocos Nucifera
The apparent leader of the nation of Ecoverse. She has palm tree hair.
- Punny Name: Her name means palm tree, which matches her hair.
An Ecoversian woman who appears to be a thousand years old. Stratoverse worships her. Her hair is a sunflower.

An illegal trader who happens to also be a Color. They were last heard of escaping Inverse.
- Bait the Dog: They first appear to be a smiling, friendly-looking person, but it turns out they're quite rude and apathetic to Xela's pleas. Unclear whether it's fantastic racism or if that's just their personality.
- Green from the dream of a thousand years ago appears friendly and helpful, but still mocks their friend when they lose patience trying to meditate.
- Dissonant Serenity: Rarely stops smiling, even when refusing to help or belittling others.
- Establishing Character Moment: They first show up with a friendly smile, only to immediately neutralize the frightened Inversian who stumbled upon them.Green: I said shut up.
