     Gloomverse in General 

  • 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.

Wallis Gloom

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.

Harold Gloom

Wallis's brother. Wallis is famous and loved by the whole nation, while he himself lives in a cardboard box. After stealing money from Wallis and spending some, he gets caught, and Wallis blackmails him into working for him. While Harold is more levelheaded than Wallis, he is still a complete weirdo himself.

  • Adorable Evil Minions: The Lemon Kids living inside his hat.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: A gender-flipped version, Harold is this at first, before mellowing out.
  • Bishōnen: Gets his own moment here, but it could have just been Cakegirl hallucinating...
  • Black Sheep: Feels like one after Wallis casts a spell to turn his limbs invisible, and starts alienating him out of guilt.
  • 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.
  • Hair-Contrast Duo: A non-romantic example with Wallis, although Harold used to be blond as well.
  • The Minion Master: Has several sentient lemon heads called Lemon Kids living inside his hat, who consider him to be their master.
  • Performance Anxiety: He hates the spotlight.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: His hair became black, presumably when he gained magic.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Sleeps with a stuffed animal, which can and has been taken hostage against him.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has Adorable Evil Minions who recurrently talk about sacrificing people to their Dark Overlord. He himself isn't intentionally dangerous, but it's implied his eyes turned red because of the Dark Overlord as well.
  • 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.

Mooching Hobo AKA Amadeus

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.


Wallis and Harold's mother.

Professor Purple

A professor who researches magic. He and Wallis dislike each other.


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. She is the main antagonist until The Magic Show Part 6, where she shows up to crash Wallis's magic show with her huge golem and is defeated and killed by her own overuse of magic.

  • Ax-Crazy: This becomes more and more apparent over time.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She appears cute and friendly on the outside, but secretly harbors a murderous grudge against Wallis and Assistant.
  • Bright Is Not Good: Cakegirl is almost entirely pink.
  • Climax Boss: Is this during Wallis's show, in which she shows up with a giant cake golem and starts destroying everything.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Tortures Seaweed for saving Wallis from her by taking her wand and trying to break it.
  • Combat Stilettos: Wears High Heeled Boots in her entire arc.
  • Cute Is Evil: She's incredibly cute, but very vengeful and bratty.
  • Cute and Psycho: Soooo much.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Wallis fires her (for good reason!) and she retaliates by showing up at his magic show and destroying everything, not only hurting Wallis's loved ones, but ruining Wallis's reputation.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: One of the reasons Cakegirl plots revenge against Wallis; she just wanted to be a part of his gang, and seeing Assistant replace her only fuels the fire.
  • Insane = Violent: Cakegirl is clearly mentally unstable.
  • Meaningful Name: CAKEgirl.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Almost everything Cakegirl owns and wears is pink.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Cakegirl's plan pushes her to the point that her wand snaps and severely injures her, putting her in a coma.
  • Spoiled Brat: Doesn't believe she should have to do any work, and is incredibly angry when Wallis eventually fires her.
  • Unstoppable Rage: She keeps on going and causing destruction until eventually her overuse of power destroys her.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Gets worse and worse as her wand begins to crack under the pressure of the power she's using.

Madam President

The current president of Gloomverse.


     Stratoverse in General 

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Their legal system. Cirrus scoffs at the idea of voting instead of "battling for political dominance".
  • Ban on Magic: Stratoversians aren't allowed to use their magic where Gloomversians can see them.
    • Inverted in Stratoverse itself. Having no or weak magic looses you civic rights.
  • Color-Coded Patrician: Royals and their regents are the only ones who are allowed to wear the color yellow.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Most Stratoversians see nothing wrong with having a mandatory wand surgery as young as thirteen, and it is written in law that the Un-Sorcerer lose their rights entirely.
    • Defied by Indigo, and to a seemingly lesser extent, Cirrus.
  • Elemental Nation: The sky nation.
  • 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.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Is distracted by a fly while Madame President is calling him.
  • 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.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Flirts a lot, generally with neither luck nor common sense. See No Social Skills below.
  • Friendless Background: Implies this as one reason why he doesn't regret leaving his home country.
  • Going Native: Blends almost seamlessly in the Gloomversian population by now, to the point that it fooled the Judge into believing he was born there.
  • Hidden Depths: It turns out he has a lot of feelings about Stratoverse's treatment of its citizens.
  • Lack of Empathy: When he finds out that the guard is an Inversian, he has no problem selling him out to the media.
  • Meaningful Name: Indigo, and he's indigo.
  • No Social Skills: He's very often unaware of what effect what he's saying has, so he comes off as incredibly rude.
    Indigo: Sup hot bitch.
    Madam President: Say that again and I'll break your legs with a guitar.
    Indigo: Hey, it was a compliment!
    Madam President: No it wasn't.
  • Pet the Dog: Has plenty of moments- the date, his "friendship" with Pi, his adorable ways and his backstory.
  • Say It with Hearts: Happens at least once when he's flirting.
  • Smug Snake: When he finds out the guard's real identity at the magic show.
  • Speech Impediment: Has a lisp.


The current Prince of Stratoverse.

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: He fought for the title of Prince.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Very easy to anger.
  • Innocent Bigot: Sometimes makes racist comments, but it seems he's genuinely concerned rather than hateful.
    • ZigZagged in that he also punched a president in the face for making a comment against magicless people.
  • Manchild: He's childish, not that he'd admit it.
  • Persona Non Grata: He's technically forbidden from returning to Gloomverse, for punching Madam President in the face.

Nim AKA Cumulonimbus

The current Princess of Stratoverse.

Queen Virga

The current Queen of Stratoverse.



     Inverse in General 
  • 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.


Lady Judge's ambassador. Unlike most Inversians, she often fails to be The Stoic, and appears to be quite Hot-Blooded.

  • 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 Guard

Wallis' 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.


An 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.



     Ecoverse in General 


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.

  • The Ageless: Hasn't aged a day since Assistant's vision of her from a thousand years ago.
  • Necessarily Evil: Appears to believe this regarding whether Assistant should be killed without mercy.
  • Unwanted False Faith: She denies being a goddess, claiming to be a human being, but she is met with doubt.


An illegal trader who happens to also be a Color. They were last heard of escaping Inverse.


How well does it match the trope?
