The various characters of Gold Digger.


An elite group of warriors who help keep the peace on the magical realm of Jade. The story mostly involves the Northern Edge-Guard team, many members of which are werecats.

  • Captain Ersatz: Most of the original members of the guard were pretty much based on the ThunderCats (1985). Indeed, their names (except for Gar and Shelia) are anagrams. The joke was that their team had an obvious opening for a Cheetah, if Brit was interested.
  • Advertisement:
  • Summon to Hand: And they can all do this with their respective weapons.

    Garfield "Gar" Silvear 
A werejaguar who was trained by Julia Diggers.

  • Cannot Spit It Out: He could never voice his feelings for Brittany until it was too late.
  • Disney Death: Gar is fatally wounded during the Black Gate arc, but Julia is able to use a version of the Renewing Breath technique to revive him. This comes at the cost of the life of her martial arts master, Leep - freely and knowingly given.

    Sheila Silvear

Garfield's younger sister and Raphael and Calandra's current superior.

  • A-Cup Angst: Most certainly does not have reason for this while in human form. However all lycanthropes consider their hybrid forms to be their "true" form, and her "true" form wishes it wasn't so petite.
  • Badass Adorable: In Sheila's were-jaguar form, she's small, she's cute, she knows it, and she is at least as badass as most of her teammates.
  • The Chick: The only female member of the Edge-Guard in their earlier appearances.
  • Disability Superpower: Was born with a defect that caused her human form to have the physique and power of her lycan form, leaving her "true" lycan form as short and weak as her human form should actually be
  • Glass Cannon: Her human form has all the power (and body), but her hybrid form has the regeneration and invulnerability. She stays in her hybrid form to avoid being one.
  • Mundane Utility: Sheila has been known to use her ice sword to chill her drinks.
  • Older Than They Look: Her hybrid form looks like a teenager. A young teenager.
  • Tsundere: She has a thing for Tirga but can't stand his womanizing ways. She promised herself not to admit her feelings to Tirga until he is ready to be monogamous with her.

    Other Members 


The leader of the Edge-Guard.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: has two swords representing opposite principles, Seraphim for positive energy and Necro for negative.


  • Handsome Lech: Blatantly attempts to pick up or seduce any attractive woman he comes across, much to Sheila's frustration.


  • Hidden Depths: He's a talented musician, which no one knew for some time.


A were-cheetah who just happened to show up the day of Brittany's wedding. Was eventually revealed to be a golem created by a romantic rival, who then tried to destroy him for failing to break up Brit and her fiancé. Brianna was able to save a piece that contained his "soul" and, with some help from the villainess Array, eventually gave him a real body. He currently serves in the Northern Edge-Guard.


An Amazon Breeder who was taken with Raphiel. Unfortunately, her attempts to get into his pants eventually resulted in her being cursed.
  • Action Mom: Breeders are fertile Amazons whose primary duty is to seek out suitable mates and birth new members of the tribe. Before/between/after that, they're as tough as any Amazon.
    • Sadly, a later GD issue revealed that uncursing Sil has also rendered her sterile.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Got turned into a Were-Wabbit.
  • Killer Rabbit: Wabbits look like cute little bunnies with long tails, but they're carnivorous, have Absurdly Sharp Blades on the end of those tails, and can infect people like a were-creature and turn them into Wabbits.
  • Team Pet: As a wabbit.


A were-lioness who trains with Raph and Sheila.

  • Work Off the Debt: Owes a huge amount of money to the Ashlanders for poaching their deer. She later finds out she got off lightly.


Agency Zero

The world's former equivalent to the Justice League or Avengers, the group quit openly superheroing after a costly final battle against their nemesis made them realize his actions (and many lesser threats) were as much vendettas against them as they were about his own ambitions. Restructuring themselves as a Men In Black-like organization, they fight supervillains as anonymously as possible to keep budding bad guys from having a target to fixate on.

    Agent M / Miracle 
Leader of the Agency and all-around heroic person. Partner of Agent 'Gia (Stryyp).
  • Ambiguous Robots: Despite seeming to bleed, a couple of times when his face has been damaged, the exposed underlayer looks distinctly robotic, and he is unable to directly act against Gina for some reason. When she was arrested for breaking and entering, he couldn't cuff her, let alone give testimony.
    • It's later confirmed that he's apparently a time-displaced and amnesiac creation of Gina's.
  • Captain Ersatz: He's the local "Superman".
  • Hope Bringer: As Miracle. After a particularly bad incident, he decided it wasn't worth the trouble it attracted and decided the heroes would be best served by going "zero profile" instead.
  • The Mentor: M's grooming Stryyp to be his successor.
  • Time Stands Still: M's greatest power: He can briefly pause time, allowing him to save the day "like a miracle". Unfortunately, it's effectively Cast From Hit Points, so repeated use can leave him looking like crap.

The Nubian Avatar of Battle

    Barbara "Crush" Duncan

Former partner of Crimson Avenger. Introduced as a Boxed Cape working for Tirant; eventually joined Agency Zero.

  • Amazonian Beauty: In her super form, she's very tall and muscular. She even gets the assets to match. In her regular form, she's more pretty than beautiful, average height, and rather slender.
  • Gay Bravado: During her first encounter with Xane, the agent forcefully refuses to let Crush help bring her fellow escaped prisoners back to jail. Barbara eventually manages to take Xane's mind off the topic with a little prison-style flirtation. "You smell nice. And up close I can see... you got a real... pretty... mouth." Crush immediately gets to work while Xane spends the next two pages recovering from the shock. When Crush is released after the storyline and partners with Xane in Agency Zero, she keeps doing this — sometimes apparently without trying.note 
    • If It's You, It's Okay: Has confided—to herself, at least—that while she likes guys, if she ever went after another woman, it would probably be Xane. Probably why she enjoys constantly teasing Xane about it.
  • Genius Bruiser: Her day job is as a biochemist, and she Invented the chemical that gave her powers.
  • Leotard of Power: Her costume is just a leotard.
  • Must Make Amends: While being blackmailed by Tirant, she crippled Vector, another of her former teammates. She turned herself in and actively resisted parole. She eventually came to terms with her actions and was released to join Agency Zero.
  • Sizeshifter: Able to go from her natural, slightly small size to a towering Amazon who does control her size. Unlike other Size-Shifters, she appears to be only able to go bigger and back.



    D'bra / Debra / Agent Star Platinum 
Current Dragon Queen and former superhero and office manager.

  • Child by Rape: Is a product of T'mat's violation by Dreadwing
  • Large and in Charge: The largest of all the dragons.
  • Guile Hero: Debra made her human form to be small and agile, knowing some of the time a smart adventuress, not a giant dragon, is what the situation calls for.
  • Heroic Bastard: Despite the above, she is one of the most heroic dragons (if not the most heroic) in the comic.
  • Hybrid Power: It's implied that her father Dreadwing being an Iron Dragon is why she's so large.
  • Large and in Charge: Is the ruler of dragon-kind and the largest and most physically strongest Platinum Dragon, even when not fully grown.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Is noted to be unusually selfless for a dragon.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Platinum dragons lack wings per se, instead having "ether vents" allowing them to channel magic like jets to hover or fly in straight lines at incredible speed.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: At 5'4", her human form isn't exactly imposing, but it still packs all the strength of her draconic form.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She is thousands of years old, despite her rather demure and youthful appearance. So much so that she refers Fauntleroy as a "little boy".
  • Wizards and Witches: Agency Zero's former magic-user. Her five-minute-amnesia spells help a lot in Agency Zero keeping to the 'zero profile' part of its mission.

    Queen T'mat 
Former queen of the dragons and D'bra's mother.

  • Artificial Limbs: Her hand is a magical prosthetic.
  • Berserk Button: Anything to do with Dreadwing. Even simply hearing about Dreadwing's actions unnerves her.
  • Easily Forgiven: Britanny forgave T'mat for trying to enslave her for her powers, Master Ecko forgave her for almost killing him and Tark, nd Mesha and Brod forgave her for everything that happened at the Retreat.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Like her daughter, she is a platinum dragon.
  • Protagonist-Centered Morality: Her kidnapping and torture of Tark and Mesha goes unmentioned and unpunished, as well as the various acts of murder, assault and terrorism that she committed trying to get them back after Brod rescued them.
  • Rape as Backstory: She and Dreadwing were close companions since childhood, but Dreadwing grew to hate her after she was named Brood Queen and defeated him in combat for the right. T'mat came to hate him after he used the Time Raft to kill her fellow dragons, then to facilitate her mutilation and rape.
  • What You Are in the Dark: She claims that the social programs that she funded were solely for the sake of political maneuvering to Mav. His retort basically implies that the fact that she seems to remember the names on all the financial aid documents for the 200 orphans cared for by one of those programs means that she cares more than she lets on.


    Gothwain & Sherisha 
See Villains

    Lydia Iceron McKraken

A blonde, waifish were-rat girl with a very headstrong attitude, best known for unleashing streams of profanity when under stress (or just when speaking in general). She is the de facto leader of of the "Mall Rats" and has proven herself to be effective, though at times she can be more bossy than necessary. In the Throne of Shadows special mini-series, Lydia also shows that she'd rather her friends hate her than see them die. She is later revealed to be the daughter of Gothwrain and Sherisha.

    Romeo Ellis

A blue-haired were-rat, Romeo is the only male of the group and seemingly the lowest on the totem pole. (In fact, he's just as good a fighter and assassin as his two friends/lovers; he's simply more willing to take their punishment for the sake of group harmony.) He is overly dramatic in a quasi-Shakespearean manner. While Lydia is the best combat leader, Romeo could be seen as the group's emotional anchor, ever the demonstrative and cautious individual.

  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: According to Fred's Rule 34 shorts on the trio, Romeo has this, but his Hopeless Romantic persona prevents him from using it the way Lydia and Moisha want.

    Moisha Rich

The Chick of the Mall Rats, a purple-haired were-rat. She is best known for her very large chest, having some of the most generous proportions in the comic. She speaks in Valley Girl and acts bored in most circumstances. Chosen to be one of Lydia's friends from birth.

  • Gag Boobs: Her breasts are frequently used for comedy — both by contrast with Lydia, and for simple physical comedy (being too large to crawl through small tunnels outside of rat form, for instance).
  • Valley Girl: OMG! Like, so totally, totally, totally much! (ahem) She speaks like a stereotypical Valley Girl.

Kylie Labranch

One of Gina's students, and the world's most prolific collector of the strange and weird.

Elroy Nabbum

Paul Ulysses

One of Gina's students, and a collector of Greek artifacts, which led him to find the Olympian Venus.


An Olympian Goddess, weakened and bound to the shield of Mars that Paul wields.

  • Physical Goddess: Yes. She does not take the possibility that the Olympians are descended from the Gardeners well, because that would mean she's not as divine.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Vaphne and Alena.
  • Troll: Likes messing with the students.

Anton Fyst

One of Gina's students, head of the campus's ghost-hunting club.


One of Gina's students, V'ayt has no memories of his past, and has a mysterious, unremovable collar around his neck. Is actually the dragon Fauntleroy with no memory of his past.

  • Heel–Face Turn: Upon his first death.
  • Hetero Life Mate: With Jotaru , the djinn
  • Summon to Hand: He can do this with his shotgun. It may not be a BFS, but damned if it doesn't pack a wallop.
  • The Atoner: When he was a dragon, he partnered with one of the worst in pursuit of power, betrayed an elf he fell in love with...and now he seeks to make up for what he's done and free her trapped spirit. With Gina's help, he succeeds in the latter.
  • National Anthem: As a fighter, he uses "God Save the Queen" as his theme music when he enters the arena.
  • Sharing a Body: With Senadra after Gina helps free her spirit.

    Crimson Avenger

A superhero who isn't a member of Agency Zero, though not for lack of job offers. Former partner of Britanny when they were both high-school superheroes ("Pink Avenger and the Cheet").

  • Badass Normal: Has no apparent powers, yet still fights against supervillains and wins.
  • Bash Brothers: First with Cheets, then with Crush.
  • Broken Pedestal: The Agency Zero members are this to her with their zero-visibility policy.
  • Fangirl: Of Miracle and several of the other old-guard supers...which is why she's also disappointed they've gone the zero-visibility route instead of standing up to inspire.

    The Vaultron Force 
Five Leprechauns who pilot robotic shoes that form one "giant" human-sized robot. They've help the Diggers sisters—especially Brianna, who helped them build their robots—on several occasions.


Leader of the Vaultron Force.

    Erwin "Pee-Wee" Talon

A super-genius at genetic engineering, despite having yet to reach puberty. Was one of Gina's Rogues Gallery until he was placed in an advanced class for genius kids. He has since calmed down and befriended Jetta and Thabian's son Pojo.

  • Break the Haughty: After going to the APS school, he finally learns that he doesn't know everything when it takes him several days to figure out something literally All There in the Manual (the second page of the textbook).
  • Child Prodigy: As explained in his character description.
  • Homeschooled Kid: During his "Lord Talon" phase, it was all but stated that his mother was teaching him; this was made explicit during the story in Tiffany and Charlotte where Erwin's mother was persuaded that it would be good for him to learn next to children his own age. Sure enough, the story revolves around Erwin being forced to learn social skills in a hurry. (Since the school is an Extranormal Institute, his minions didn't work out as a crutch.)
  • Older Than They Look: He was eight years old when he was introduced, which would mean he's currently around seventeen years old in-universe, although his design hasn't been changed to reflect this. He looks barely older than the eight-year-old Pojo.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: His first three minions were Galford/Daishi (a stoic Ninja), Zelda (a bald, Amazonian bully), and Ionis (a magic user); he later hired a Similar Squad as replacements (who each had unpleasant histories with their counterparts), but eventually decided to keep all six on the payroll after the original three finally managed to defeat Britanny for once.

    Ancient Gina 
A much older version of Gina who was flung back to before the start of the universe while trying to stop an undead Cosmic Horror from devouring existence. An artificer and the creator of the Time Raft and Positive Infinity, she is currently engaged in a cosmic game of "chess" with her pawn, Dreadwing, over the Infinity Engine, a device that allows its user control over reality.

It was later revealed that Ancient Gina is, in fact, Madrid. However, there have been hints that there may be more than one of her in existence.

  • Ambiguous Situation: While she was revealed to be a future version of Madrid, there are many scenes that imply that she really is Gina. This suggests that there could possibly be two Ancient Ginas. When the question was brought up, Fred Perry neither confirmed nor denied the theory.
  • The Archmage: She is the most powerful mage in existence. Theodore Diggers' magical strength only equals a fraction of hers, and she can make every magical being in the universe feel a disturbance in the Force just by powering up a fake attack on Dreadwing.
  • Berserk Button: Dreadwing harming innocents. His absorption of Miki and Mynny caused her to shatter his rib cage with just one blow.
  • Born Unlucky: The sourcebook labels this as one of her traits, but whether this is good or bad has yet to be seen.
  • Lesser of Two Evils: She is more or less responsible for the crimes of Dreadwing, Gothwrain and Dr. Peachbody. However, she needed them in order to create the Infinity Engine. She also seemingly feels regretful for the role she played in the above, and works to make sure that Dreadwing doesn't harm anyone while he's under her control.
  • Mysterious Protector: She has built a powerful web of protection around Gina to keep her safe from Dreadwing and other threats.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She is tens of billions of years old.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She only interferes with Dreadwing when he is trying to harm someone; otherwise, she leaves him alone in the paradise he created for himself.
  • Trapped in the Past/Set Right What Once Went Wrong: On her 33rd birthday, Gina was shot back to before the beginning of time while trying to keep an undead universe from consuming all of reality. She now works to ensure that her younger self succeeds in saving the universe.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Ancient Gina is currently missing without any explanation. This has allowed Dreadwing to enact his plans to conquer Jade-Realm and steal the power sequestered in her sanctum.

How well does it match the trope?
