  • Automatic Crossbows: Her Weapon of Choice in Vanessa's route, where she begins training as a hunter.
  • Back from the Dead: She's killed by Lucifer at the end of JD's fifth season, and resurrected by an unknown being at the beginning of their sixth season.
  • Battle Couple: She and her love interest eventually become this in all routes.
  • Big Sister Instinct: She's very protective of Grace and puts her sister's well-being before her own. Her big-sister instincts give her common ground with Antonio, who also had a little sister who was very important to him, and inspire her to want to help Lettie in Razi's fourth season.
  • Blind Without 'Em: She can't see clearly without her glasses; when they come off, the narration usually makes note of things going blurry.
  • Came Back Strong: After her resurrection at the beginning of JD's sixth season, she feels remarkably healthy, even more so than before dying, and has developed some supernatural powers.
  • Compelling Voice: In Antonio's route, her unique vampire ability allows her to force other vampires (apart from Antonio, who as her sire is immune) to do what she tells them. It's shown to be particularly powerful, with even Dracula being unable to resist it.
  • Damsel out of Distress: Although she's held captive by multiple antagonists across all routes, she usually has already gotten started trying to escape by the time her love interest shows up to rescue her.
  • Dhampyr: In Vanessa's route, she's partially transformed into a vampire by Nitiqret, but the transformation is interrupted, and she instead becomes a human/vampire hybrid. She still usually looks human, and only gets vampiric features (red eyes, fangs, etc.) when she thinks about it or gets hungry.
  • Disability-Negating Superpower:
    • In Mackenzie's route, becoming a werewolf gives her superhuman eyesight, meaning she no longer needs to wear glasses. She does keep wearing them with non-prescription lenses to keep up appearances, though.
    • Averted in Diego and Vanessa's routes, where she still needs her glasses after she becomes a vampire, though she does gain greatly enhanced night vision, and in JD's route, being resurrected as an angel doesn't affect her eyesight.
    • In Razi's route, she doesn't need glasses when in her djinn form, but seemingly does the rest of the time.
    • In Antonio's route, becoming a vampire does make her no longer need glasses.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: She indulges in this in every route.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: In her angel form in JD's route, the pupil and iris parts of her eyes look like solid crystal.
  • First-Person Smartass: She uses snark at least in part as a coping mechanism to deal with her dissatisfaction with her circumstances and with being out of her depth. Since she's very frequently out of her depth once the supernatural side Havenfall starts intruding into her life, her narration and inner monologue provide a steady stream of snark and self-deprecation.
    Heroine: (They're gonna write 'killed by horror movie white girl bullshit' on my tombstone!)
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: In Diego, Vanessa, and Antonio's routes.
  • Gay Groom in a White Tux: She wears a white suit instead of a dress when marrying Vanessa, who does wear a dress.
  • Genie in a Bottle: In Razi's route, she is the chosen guardian of the leylines that converge beneath the bowling alley, and they give her the powers of a djinn at the end of the fifth season. Her actual bottle ends up being a mason jar.
  • Healing Factor: After becoming an angel in JD’s route, her body magically repairs injuries in seconds.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: Her name is chosen by the player.
  • Holy Backlight: In her angel form in JD's route, the glow of her crystalline wings lights her from behind, and can be blinding to those who look at her.
  • Horror Hunger: In Diego's seventh season after he turns her into a vampire. Newly-turned vampires experience the thirst for blood very intensely; the heroine finds herself struggling against the powerful urge to sink her fangs into her own friends.
  • I Have Your Wife: She is held captive as a lure for her love interest by a number of different villains at various points across all routes.
  • Light 'em Up: Angels are said to be able to control light, though she's still learning how after being resurrected as one in JD's route.
  • Little Bit Beastly: After being turned into a werewolf in Mackenzie's route, her werewolf form, like others in the setting, just gives her wolf ears, shaggier hair, gold eyes, and fangs.
  • Power Copying: As a vampire starting in Diego's seventh season, she can use the powers of other supernaturals after drinking their blood.
  • The Power of Blood:
    • In Antonio's route, she's revealed to be descended from the person who found the Fountain of Life, and, as the firstborn of the current generation of her family, her blood contains magical powers of life. It's used by Frankenstein to resurrect Eva, and regular transfusions of it are the only thing that can keep Eva alive going forward. Later on, the Cult of Blood seek to follow her as the Lady of Blood, and their goal is to turn her into a vampire because her blood's special properties would make her very powerful as one.
      Heroine: (Why! Does everyone! Want! My blood!)
    • This is also important in Vanessa's route, and the brides of Dracula seek to use her blood to resurrect him because of it. It's also the reason she survives her interrupted transformation into a vampire.
  • Power Tattoo: In JD's route, she gets a tattoo of a pentagram on her shoulder, which solidifies and makes permanent her summoner's bond with JD.
  • Promotion to Parent: Her parents died under as yet unrevealed circumstances some years prior to the start of the game. She and Grace were initially taken in by their grandmother, but after she also died, the protagonist has been Grace's sole guardian, and her primary concern in life is making sure that Grace is safe and happy.
  • Pungeon Master: She makes many, many puns about Razi being a djinn in his route.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: After Diego turns her into a vampire at the end of his sixth season, Antonio turns her into a vampire at the end of his fifth season, and Nitiqret partially turns her into a vampire at the end of Vanessa's fifth season.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: After Mackenzie turns her into a werewolf at the end of her sixth season.
  • Tears of Blood: In Antonio's route, she bleeds from her eyes when she uses her Lady of Blood abilities.
  • Token Human: She's the only human member of Havenfall's Finest, apart from Vanessa in some routes. At least until the end of Mackenzie and Diego's sixth seasons, when she is turned into a werewolf and a vampire, respectively, the beginning of JD and Razi's sixth seasons, when she is resurrected as an angel and empowered as a djinn by the leylines, respectively, and the end of Vanessa and Antonio's fifth seasons, when she is turned into a human/vampire hybrid and a vampire, respectively.
  • Truth Serums: In JD's sixth season, after she's brought back to life, she has a power that compels people to tell the truth, spilling whatever thoughts run through their minds while eye contact is maintained.
  • Voluntary Vampire Victim: In Diego and Antonio's routes, she ends up volunteering herself as a source of blood for her vampire lover to feed on. Diego is very reluctant, agreeing only on the basis of necessity; Antonio takes rather less persuasion.
  • Winged Humanoid: After she is resurrected as an angel in JD's sixth season, she has crystalline wings.



  • Damsel in Distress: Grace's disappearance sets the plot of the four core love interest routes into motion and leads to the protagonist's discovery of Havenfall's supernatural underside. This is not the case in Vanessa and Antonio's routes, which have different premises to start them off.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: A partial example, as Grace's surname is whatever you set for the player character's surname.
  • Hero of Another Story: In Mackenzie's route, she has her own off-screen adventures joining and working for Code Black.
  • I Have Your Wife: Frequently the victim of this in multiple routes.
  • Never Be Hurt Again: After her rescue in Diego's route, she starts training with Vanessa, never wanting to be that helpless again.
  • Relationship Upgrade: She and Gwen get together in every route.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Both in Diego's route, where she trains to hunt vampires with Vanessa, and in Mackenzie's, where she joins Code Black.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Diego's third season. Given what she went through in the previous seasons, it's not unjustified, but her insistence on joining Vanessa in hunting the supernatural, and her hostility towards all vampires, brings her into conflict with the protagonist and causes her and Diego a good bit of added stress. Fortunately, they sort things out in the following season.
  • The Voice: After she goes missing in Mackenzie's route, her presence is limited to a voice on the other end of a phone, with no face to go with it. She doesn't show up in person again until the fourth season.

    Mackenzie's Route 

Twyla, Issa, and Wade

    Razi's Route 

Roksana "Roxie" Nassar

  • Genie in a Bottle: As the child of two djinn, she is one as well.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Many of her expressions are very reminiscent of her mother's.
  • Signature Scent: Continuing the Nassar family tradition, her magic is accompanied by the smell of milkweed, a wildflower native to the midwest.


Love Interests

Havenfall's Finest


Sheriff Mackenzie Hunt
Click to see her upgraded transformation. 

  • Amazonian Beauty: Multiple CGs call attention to her muscled body.
  • Butch Lesbian: Short-haired and buff. Also referenced in-game:
    Annabelle: You pull off butch way better than I do, alpha.
  • Closet Geek: She's a huge fan of comic books, and has quite the extensive collection, but is too embarrassed to talk about it openly. Growing up in Havenfall, reading about characters with superpowers was a way of seeing other people like herself and feeling more normal; as she points out, turning into a wolf is barely a blip on the superpowers radar.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Mackenzie doesn't fit any of the usual personality stereotypes, but the contrast of her blonde hair and green eyes with her dark skin does denote her as unusual even before her supernatural nature is revealed.
  • Expressive Ears: In wolf form, her ears droop when she looks downcast.
  • Fair Cop: She's a cop, and since she's a love interest she's designed to be attractive.
  • First-Name Basis: When the heroine first visits her house, she calls her "sheriff" as usual before Mackenzie says to call her "Mac," saying she's not the sheriff in her own home.
  • Gay Groom in a White Tux: She wears a suit when marrying the heroine, who wears a dress.
  • In-Series Nickname: Her friends sometimes call her "Mac" for short.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Her werewolf form primarily seems to involve gaining wolf ears, golden eyes, fangs, and messier hair. She unlocks a more powerful transformation at the end of season three, but even then it just gives her even larger muscles, longer claws, and fur covering her arms, shoulders, and sides.
  • The Sheriff: She's the sheriff of Havenfall.
  • Super Mode: She unlocks a more powerful transformation at the end of her third season.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Mackenzie's green eyes turn bright gold when her werewolf side is showing.
  • Statuesque Stunner: According to her character profile, she's 5'11".
  • Tanktop Tomboy: Her initial casual outfit is her uniform pants with a black tanktop that emphasizes her muscular arms.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With JD. Even though a large part of their relationship consists of JD acting out and Mac threatening to arrest them, she does obviously care about them.
  • Werewolf Theme Naming: A werewolf named Hunt. There's also a species of wolf called the Mackenzie wolf.


Dr. Diego Escalona

  • Animals Hate Him: He mentions in both his own route and JD's that animals tend to be scared of or hostile to him. When Spike the hellhound proves friendly to him, he's moved almost to tears.
  • Dark and Troubled Past:
    • Being a vampire would be enough to qualify on its own, but even before that he participated in the Spanish invasion of Mexico as a soldier under Hernán Cortés. He finally elaborates a little in his seventh season: he and Antonio were sickened by their side's actions in their first battle with the indigenous residents and promptly deserted, only to be cursed into vampires by the vengeful Necahual.
    • In his fifth season he describes the period immediately after he and Antonio were turned as "like a drunken rampage." Again, season seven provides a bit more detail, confirming that they turned upon the Spanish army camp and slaughtered everyone there, only missing killing Cortés himself because he was off scouting at the time. His actions have left him with a guilt that he's carried for five centuries, and has a lot to do with his present tendency toward Self-Deprecation.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Diego became a doctor in order to help people, and serves as Havenfall's general practitioner. Even when it's willingly offered, he refuses to drink blood directly from a living person unless he's about to die and has no other option - outside of emergencies, he prefers to stick to blood bags, which he says are ethical and anonymous.
    Diego: Consent isn't the issue here. It's ethics. It's not right to do that to people.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Diego admits to having a soft spot for dogs, which makes it all the more distressing to him that most animals hate him. He forms an instant attachment to Spike, to the point that on his route the heroine can't help feeling a little jealous.
  • Hospital Hottie: He's a doctor, and since he's a love interest he's designed to be attractive. Played up in one CG where he's roleplaying — he's shirtless with his labcoat slung over one shoulder and teasingly holding a thermometer at his mouth.
  • Humanity Ensues: A reversal spell gone wrong turns him back into a human at the end of his eighth season.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: He gains Dracula's power to control other vampires this way after they switch powers at the end of his seventh season.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Frequently sports a white labcoat during working hours.
  • No-Sell: In JD's route, he's the only one who doesn't fall under Rip Van Winkle's sleep spell, because vampires don't sleep.
  • Not Himself: He is replaced by a facestealer at one point in JD's route.
  • The Older Immortal: He's the eldest member of Havenfall's Finest by at least 200 years.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He looks thirty, but confirms that he was born in the 1500s and is around 500 years old by the time of the game.
  • Romantic Vampire Boy: He's a vampire, and one of the possible love interests.
  • Self-Deprecation: He has a habit of this.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: He was in love with Evangelina when they were kids, but it was not reciprocated.
  • Vampires Are Rich: He's quite wealthy, being a doctor as well as functionally immortal. In his route he is frequently frustrated by the heroine's refusal to let him ease her financial load, though he does end up paying for Grace to go to college.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: Even in his route when the heroine is willing to let him simply feed from her, he refuses, unless it's an emergency, because he doesn't consider it ethical even with consent.
  • Weakened by the Light: After Dracula switches powers with him at the end of his seventh season.
  • When She Smiles: The heroine is caught off guard the first time she sees an open, non-smirking smile from him.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Diego mostly seems to be making the best of his immortality. When the subject of whether or not he'd ever turn the protagonist comes up in his fourth season, however, he proves to have some very strong opinions on the subject, informed by having lived through both World Wars and numerous other unpleasant events during the past five centuries.
    Diego: Everybody wants to be immortal until they actually are. [...] There's a reason there are so many cautionary tales about eternal life.
  • Worthy Opponent: In season 8, the heroine suspects that the reason Dracula hasn't killed Diego is because he sees him as this.


Jordan "JD" Davies / The Jersey Devil

  • Badass Biker: As part of the delinquent vibe they have going on, they have a motorcycle, which they like to ride around the countryside.
  • Charm Person: They have a persuasion power which they can use to make people forget they saw anything supernatural.
  • Commitment Issues: They have them. It causes some conflict in their first season, but they get past it fairly quickly.
  • Delinquent Hair: Their brightly colored and partially shaved hair helps convey that they're the town troublemaker.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: They have orange eyes most of the time, and in their devil form their pupils become gold and they get a red ring around the iris.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Their head is shaved on one side with the other side braided. On the shaved side, they have multiple ear piercings and an eyebrow piercing.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Their usual outfit includes a leather jacket.
  • Horned Humanoid: In their devil form.
  • The Jersey Devil: JD is specifically identified as the Jersey Devil, exiled to rural Indiana for... some reason.
    JD: I'm a devil. From a couple of states over.
  • Leitmotif: They have an energetic rock theme.
  • Playing with Fire: They have fire abilities.
  • Power Incontinence: They lose control over their powers at the end of their fourth season, and are only able to regain control when the heroine uses their summoner's bond to command their flames to be doused.
  • Pungeon Master: They love to torment their friends with "awful punny jokes" about their supernatural natures.
  • Really 700 Years Old: They look 25 according to their character profile, but allude to having been alive for longer than any human. In their fifth season it's confirmed that they were born in 1735. In an earlier season they'd made a statement to Rip about how the nap incident was "like 300 years ago", but this was likely hyperbole.
  • Rebellious Spirit: They definitely like to rebel, especially against their father.
  • Sibling Rivalry: They have a somewhat thorny relationship with Hikari.
  • Significant Monogram: Jordan Davies, aka JD, the Jersey Devil. Lampshaded multiple times in their route.
  • Transgender: Is nonbinary and uses the pronouns 'they/them.'
  • True Love's Kiss: How the protagonist wakes them up from Rip's sleep spell.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Mackenzie.
  • Winged Humanoid: In their devil form, a pair of red wings appear on their back.
  • Zipperiffic: Their pants have a number of extraneous zippers on the legs.


Razi Nassar

  • Astral Projection: One of the powers of a djinn, which Razi uses frequently in his fifth season to visit the heroine while Baba Yaga has his bottle.
  • Carpet of Virility: He has some notable chest hair.
  • Genie in a Bottle:
    • Razi's second season confirms that the association between djinn and bottles is not the product of fiction. If his life is endangered he can escape into the bottle, which will hold him in stasis until help can get to him. It also allows him to use magic away from the bowling alley without pain, albeit not as powerfully or as reliably; he describes it as something akin to a "crappy wi-fi router."
    • It's not without drawbacks, however - once he's in the bottle, he's stuck until someone lets him back out, and if the bottle were to fall into unfriendly hands the results would be "very bad." In his fifth season it's revealed what "very bad" means: anyone in possession of a djinn's bottle can give them three orders which they will be magically compelled to carry out, and can summon the djinn back into the bottle at will.
  • Literal Genie: Played with for Power Perversion Potential in a premium scene at the end of Razi's fifth season when Razi tells the heroine that he will do whatever she commands, but teases that he'll twist her words to suit himself so she's going to have to be very specific.
  • Master of Illusion: Illusion is one of Razi's specialties as a djinn. He largely uses it to help maintain The Masquerade (for instance, to prevent people from noticing the supernatural brawl going on between himself and Jonas in the middle of the day early in his first season), or to confuse enemies during a fight (such as making a mook's weapon "disappear"). He's capable of much more complicated illusions, however - at the extreme end, he shows himself able to trap someone in a Lotus-Eater Machine which is very difficult to break out of even once they realize it's an illusion.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: His eyes are a vibrant blue, the same color as his magic.
  • Power Perversion Potential: His powers of illusion have a broad range of bedroom applications that he's entirely willing to make use of, such as the magical strip show he treats the heroine to in his third season and the illusory romance-novel-cover meadow setting he whisks her away to early in his fourth season.
  • Really 700 Years Old: His fourth season confirms that djinn are, while not precisely immortal, long-lived enough that Razi finds it simpler to use the term. Razi himself was born in the late 1800s, so he's well over a century old.
  • Shipper on Deck: For the heroine and Vanessa, in Vanessa's route.
  • Signature Scent: Razi always smells of incense, as the protagonist's narration often makes note of. She eventually identifies as the fragrance as oud. It seems to be a natural scent; even after a dunk in a muddy lake, all she smells from Razi is the familiar incense. Not smelling it is what tips her off to the illusion in chapter 11 of Razi's first season.
  • Tranquil Fury: As the protagonist notes during his second season, the angrier Razi is, the calmer he gets. She makes this observation when he's about to throw down with the manticore, a fight that completely trashes the sheriff's office and takes some significant chunks out of Main Street.
    When most people are angry, they build and build like thunderheads and then unleash themselves like lightning strikes. Razi's the opposite: the angrier he is, the calmer he gets. Right now fury glitters in his eyes like chips of ice, and the glow under his skin pulses with a slow, even heartbeat.
  • Uncle Pennybags: Despite his claim in his first season that he's not loaded, in his third season it's confirmed that the Nassars are very rich - enough so that they can afford to keep the bowling alley operating even though the protagonist is constantly complaining that there are almost never any customers.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: In his djinn form, all Razi wears above the waist is jewelry and a couple of floating silk scarves, leaving his well-defined chest bare for the reader (and the protagonist) to admire.

Former Enemies


Vanessa Helsing

  • Ambiguously Jewish: Ultimately averted - she wears a star of David, but it wasn't brought attention to until season 2 when she and the heroine go shopping and she admits that she tries to stick to Kosher. (Leading the heroine to realise that's why she'd only picked at the cheeseburger she'd ordered for her earlier, to her now horror.) It's justified in universe however when she says that she doesn't often feel comfortable being openly Jewish in these smaller towns.
  • Badass Bandolier: She wears a bandolier slung over one shoulder.
  • Badass Cape: She wears some kind of cloak.
  • Base on Wheels: She Lives in a Van that's built like a tank and is decked out with an extensive armory and a high-tech computer system.
  • Bodyguard Crush: Determined to protect the heroine...and ends up falling for her very hard in the process. Here, however, the bodyguarding itself isn't an obstacle so much as Vanessa's insecurity, lack of experience, and pretty abnormal lifestyle.
  • Declaration of Protection: To the heroine, multiple times. The intensity of her devotion makes the heroine blush every time.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: Part of her huntress training as a child involved learning the piano, as it taught discipline.
  • Endearingly Dorky: In her first season, she tries offering some words of comfort to the heroine after a brush with a powerful vampire, but ends up accidentally emphasizing the danger she's in. The heroine's internal reaction is: "she's so bad at this, it's actually kinda cute." After Vanessa realizes the implication of her words, she flushes in embarrassment, which the heroine finds even cuter.
  • Friendship Denial: She insists that she and the members of Havenfall's Finest are not friends, but she does finally start to come around by the end of her third season.
  • Goth: She wears gothic fashion. In her cameo in Love & Legends, the narration initially tags her as "Goth Girl".
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Her outfit is mentioned to be leather.
  • I Didn't Mean to Turn You On: She doesn't seem to realize the effect she often has on the heroine.
  • I Work Alone: Says this in her first season when Razi and JD offer their help. The Helsing Order discourages hunters from teaming up with others, especially supernaturals. However, she puts aside her feelings to get help from Havenfall's Finest when the heroine is in danger.
  • Leitmotif: She has a stringed instrument theme.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: In contrast to Mackenzie, the other female love interest, who is butch.
    Heroine: God, she really is so femme. I never thought I'd be this into it.
  • Married to the Job: Hunting is her whole life. Even her downtime is largely spent training or doing equipment maintenance.
  • Meaningful Name: A reference to Van Helsing from Dracula. According to her, the Van Helsing in the book was based on one of her ancestors.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a wide-brimmed hat that looks like it was inspired by Vampire Hunter D.
  • Occidental Otaku: One of her seemingly few indulgences is her interest in anime and manga. She rambles excitedly about it to the heroine, throwing out terms like "bishoujo" and "deredere," and owns merchandise, including figurines, a Nova throw pillow, and an Andi Kim body pillow.
    • Lampshaded in her cameo in Love & Legends, where her stand-in name evolves from 'Possible Weeb?' to 'Definitely A Weeb' to 'Holy Shit She's Such A Weeb.'
  • The Paladin: She hits many of the markers of this trope, being a warrior dedicated to the protection of innocents from the "forces of evil" and belonging to The Order. The heroine even notes that "she sounds like a knight pledging an oath, fierce with determination" when she gives her Declaration of Protection.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Vanessa was initially an antagonist in Diego's third season and a supporting character in Mackenzie's route before receiving her own route in May 2018.
  • Shared Family Quirks: She shares mannerisms with her cousin Levana, her parents Avram and Jordana, and her ancestor Abraham.
  • Sole Survivor: When she was fifteen, she was sent on a mission to kill an ancient and powerful vampire, but she hesitated, and his coven was able to surround her team and killed all of them.
  • The Teetotaler: She prefers not to drink so that she can keep her wits about her.
  • Too Many Belts: Her huntress outfit has straps and buckles all over her limbs. Her casual outfit has multiple belts around the waist.
  • Tyke-Bomb: She's been trained to fight the supernatural for as long as she can remember.
  • Undying Loyalty: Vanessa is a very intense, very devoted person. She's willing to put herself in harm's way for any civilian, but finds herself especially dedicated to the heroine as she falls for her, even telling her that she'd die for her.
  • Vampire Hunter: She seems equipped and willing to fight all kinds of supernatural nasties, but as the name implies she seems to have a particular enmity against vampires. When Dracula shows up in Diego's fifth season, she's willing to break her promise not to operate in Havenfall for the chance to go after him.
  • Voluntary Vampire Victim: She lets the heroine drink her blood in a heart scene in her sixth season.
  • Whip It Good: Her main Weapon of Choice comes straight out of the Castlevania playbook.


Antonio Vasquez

  • Big Brother Instinct: Taking care of his younger sister is what motivated him when he was human, and her death still drives his actions five hundred years later. This extends to his behavior towards anyone else's younger sister as well; though he lacks Diego's Friendly Neighborhood Vampire ethics, one of the firm lines that he draws is that "little sisters are off limits." He threatens Grace in Diego's second season but when pressed he admits that he had no intention of ever harming her, and in his own route he avoids even that pretense, instead not only paying for her to go to college in Spain but hiring Gwen to be her roommate and bodyguard while she's there.
  • Commonality Connection: Seeing himself in the heroine's relationship with Grace is what prompts Antonio to give up his plans of using her blood, and once the heroine discovers his motives she admits that they're much the same.
    Heroine: I'd do some pretty heinous stuff if it meant that Grace was okay.
  • Cool Car: He drives an expensive white sports car which draws marked admiration from JD and Mackenzie, and which the heroine sarcastically describes as probably costing more than the GDP of some countries.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Everything that makes Diego's past dark and troubled applies just as much to Antonio, as they were both soldiers together and were turned at the same time. Antonio has the added salt in the wound that the reason he became a soldier was to earn money for treatment for his ill sister, only to find she had died by the time he and Diego returned to Spain.
  • Foil: He and Diego serve as foils to one another, with their shared history and status as the game's two vampire love interests serving to highlight the differences in their personalities and attitudes. Where Diego is modest and ethical, Antonio lives lavishly and makes full use of the advantages his vampire abilities provide him; where Diego refuses to drink from living humans, Antonio is accustomed to draining victims dry.
  • Fully-Embraced Fiend: In contrast to Diego, Antonio fully embraces his vampiric nature and the benefits and necessities that come with it.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: At a number of points during his first season, looking directly into Antonio's eyes leaves the heroine struggling to think clearly against an urge to be passive and cooperative. She is consistently able to resist it, however, and notes that it gets easier to shrug off each time.
  • Predator Turned Protector: Of the love interests, he is the one who has most fully embraced his supernatural state and the power that comes from it, and he starts out only interested in the heroine because he wants to sacrifice her to bring his sister back, but he comes to care for her and protects her from other supernaturals. Referenced in his route:
    Heroine: Seeing him switch from predator to protector makes my head spin even more.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Introduced as the antagonist of Diego's second season (and Man Behind the Man to first season antagonist Victor), Antonio received his own route in June 2018.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He looks about 28, but like Diego he was born in the 1500s and has been a vampire for most of the past five centuries.
  • Romantic Vampire Boy: Like Diego, he's a vampire and one of the possible love interests. However, where Diego is a Friendly Neighborhood Vampire whose romance is a Single Woman Seeks Good Man scenario, Antonio falls more into the traditional bad boy vampire love interest role, presenting the heroine with a mixture of danger and sexual magnetism.
  • Seeks Another's Resurrection: In his first season, Antonio wants to use the heroine's blood to resurrect his dead sister, which would kill the heroine in the process. He ends up abandoning the idea, knowing he'd never be able to face his sister even if it worked. Then Frankenstein brings her back anyway.
  • Supreme Chef: In his fourth season, the heroine is bewildered to discover that Antonio is actually an extremely good cook - despite the fact that not only has he not personally needed to eat normal food for hundreds of years, becoming a vampire alters one's sense of taste.
  • Vampires Are Rich: He's a billionaire CEO.


    Mackenzie's Route 

Damien Rider

  • Friends Are Chosen, Family Aren't: Beau raised him and was like a father to him, but he treated him very badly and was directly responsible for his early villainous behavior. Once his Rider pack bond is broken and Damien starts hanging out with Mackenzie's pack and the rest of Havenfall's Finest, he becomes a much better person. Beau's death in season nine affects him a lot, despite wishing that he could just stop caring about him.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After the punishment Beau deals to him after his failure in season one, Damien is more than willing to go rogue and help Mackenzie.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Like all werewolves in the setting, his shifted form just gives him gold eyes, fangs, shaggier hair, and wolf ears.
  • Opt Out: In Mackenzie's fifth season, when he hears that Beau has come to town, he tells Mackenzie that he can't stay because Beau would kill him.
  • Relationship Upgrade: He and Annabelle enter a casual relationship in Mackenzie's sixth season.

Annabelle Sheppard (as "Werewolf")

See her entry in Others (Vampires and Werewolves) below.

Gwen Doran

  • Compelling Voice: A screech from her brings the whole town under her spell.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being driven off by Vanessa, she gets captured and recruited by Code Black, and returns with Grace as her handler, to the utter befuddlement of the heroine. While she hasn't become a "good guy," exactly, she's no longer an enemy, and can be considered an ally through her connection to Grace. She joins in on the effort to overthrow Beau when he takes over the town, and the heroine comes to be grateful that her sister has Gwen looking out for her.
  • Older Than They Look: She looks to be around 18, but implies that she's older.
  • Our Banshees Are Louder: She turns out to be a banshee. She's relatively human-looking, only gaining glowing eyes and claws when transformed. She's also stronger and tougher than a human with a sharper sense of smell and has an enthralling scream. According to her, banshees are rare.
  • Predator Turned Protector: She's a banshee, and at least in Mackenzie's route is also an assassin, but she ends up falling in love with Grace and protecting her from other supernaturals in every route.
    Gwen: I won't let anything happen to Grace. That's a promise.
  • Professional Killer: She was hired by Beau to take out Mackenzie.
  • Relationship Upgrade: She and Grace get together in every route, after being roommates in most.
  • Walking Spoiler: In Mackenzie's route, much about her hinges on the fact that she's deceiving the main characters when she first appears. In other routes, the fact that she's a supernatural creature at all would come as a surprise.
  • Wolverine Claws: She has long, knife-like claws that come out of her hands.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: She came into Havenfall pretending to be a teen girl on the run from the Rider pack. She was actually an assassin sent by them to take out Mackenzie.

Beau Rider

  • And Show It to You: The Beast kills him by ripping out his heart and crushing it.
  • Bad Boss: He's a cruel alpha.
  • Big Bad: Of Mackenzie's route. He's connected to, or directly behind, every threat in it.
  • Dirty Coward: He prefers to get others to do his dirty work for him. This comes back to bite him in season nine when the Beast finds out about it.
  • Little Bit Beastly: In his werewolf form, as is typical for the setting.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His full name is Beauregard, but it's only ever used once, right before the Beast kills him.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's hundreds of years old, old enough to remember the last time the Hunt line produced a full-fledged werewolf.
  • Theme Naming: "Beau" means "beauty". Along with the Beast, they are Beauty and the Beast.
  • This Was His True Form: After he's killed, he reverts into the form of a wolf.

Liliane Labasque

  • Adaptational Heroism: She's an ally starting in Diego's fourth season and Antonio's second season.
  • Adaptational Villainy: She's the main villain of Mackenzie's fourth season and more of a neutral minor antagonist in Vanessa's second season.
  • Alliterative Name: Liliane Labasque.
  • Lesbian Vampire: She's flirty with the heroine in Antonio's second season, often with a predatory thread to it, such as nicknaming her "morsel". The heroine is not unreceptive to her advances, noting that "[her] fear and arousal wires got crossed a very, very long time ago."
  • Mass Teleportation: She can shadow warp her entire coven.
  • Opt Out: In Diego's fifth season, Liliane informs Diego and the heroine that she's taking her coven and getting as far away from Dracula as they can manage. It's not out of selfishness, however; the safety of her coven is Liliane's primary responsibility, and she does provide the main characters with a means of breaking Dracula's control over other vampires before she gets out of Dodge.
  • Ship Tease: She becomes interested in Vanessa in Antonio's route, playfully flirting with her and nicknaming her "Top Shelf."

The Silver Wolf / The Beast of Gévaudan

  • Absolute Cleavage: She doesn't wear clothes in her humanoid form, but has fur covering most of her body except for the center strip of her torso.
  • Compelling Voice: Or compelling howl in her case. Her howl can override control of the heroine's inner wolf.
  • Evil Matriarch: She was the one who turned Beau's grandfather, and Beau seems to view her as something like family because of it.
  • Godiva Hair: Her hair covers her breasts in her humanoid form.
  • Healing Factor: Even for a werewolf she heals quickly, healing from an injury from a steel trap before the heroine's eyes.
  • Hypocrite: Despite her professed hatred of cowardice and belief that the strong should overcome those weaker than them, she is very quick to resort to underhanded tactics when she might not win, like severing Mackenzie's pack bonds once she becomes a threat.
  • I Have Many Names: Code Black has a file on her with a list of her aliases, notably the Beast of Gévaudan.
  • Mentor Archetype: She acts as a mentor to Mackenzie, teaching her how to harness some of her alpha abilities since the Hunt family has lost much of that knowledge.
  • Monster Progenitor: She claims to be one of the very first werewolves.
    The Beast: I am one of the First. I was there when 'wolf' become 'pack'.
  • Offing the Offspring: She kills Beau — who is in a way her great-grandson since she turned his grandfather — after his cowardice comes to light.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's old enough that her hair has turned completely silver. Considering that Beau has only just started to get some grey hairs, and he's at least several hundred years old, she is old. She's later revealed to be one of the very first werewolves.
  • Rugged Scar: She has a scar over her right eye, which persists in her full wolf form.
  • The Social Darwinist: She believes that only the strong deserve to survive, and enforces this by testing alphas and killing the ones who disappoint her.
  • Theme Naming: Along with Beau (whose name can translate as "beauty"), they are Beauty and the Beast.
  • Treacherous Advisor: She initially seems to be an ally, and teaches Mackenzie how to use some more of her alpha abilities, but it was her howl that was overriding control of the heroine's wolf throughout season seven, and at the end of the season she breaks the pack bond between the heroine and Mackenzie.
  • Walking Spoiler: Everything about her is a mystery when she first appears, and there are many important reveals about who she is and what role she plays.
  • Wolf Man: Her normal werewolf form is more like Mackenzie's superwolf form, and she can even transform completely into a wolf.
  • You Kill It, You Bought It: Part of the reason for her testing alphas is that she wants to find someone who can best her and take her place.

    Diego's Route 

Victor Thorne

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: After his deception of the Cult of Blood is revealed to them, he's subjected to "reconditioning," and, although he'd already been working against the heroine and Antonio before, when they face him again afterward he's now zealously devoted to the Master and his plan.
  • Divide and Conquer: In Antonio's route, he's eventually revealed to have been playing Antonio and Frankenstein against each other in the hopes of having them take care of each other for him.
  • The Starscream: In Antonio's route, he's eventually revealed to have been working against Antonio all along.
  • Villain in a White Suit: In his expensive, white suit, he stands out in Havenfall. Combined with his Undeathly Pallor, it gives him an unnerving appearance.

Antonio Vasquez

See his entry in Love Interests above.

Vanessa Helsing

See her entry in Love Interests above.


Siniang Li

See her entry in Vanessa's Route below.


  • Absolute Cleavage: The neckline of her dress goes down to her waist.
  • High Collar of Doom: She has a high, feathery-looking collar.
  • Humanity Ensues: She's turned back into a human by the same reversal spell as Diego at the end of his eighth season. It turns out that this was what she had really wanted all this time, and she leaves peacefully to return to Mexico and start a new life.
  • Lunacy: She's said to have power over the sun and moon.
  • The Power of the Sun: She's said to have power over the sun and moon.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's the one who turned Diego and Antonio, so she's at least as old as them.
  • Unholy Matrimony: She's one of Dracula's brides.

    JD's Route 

The Facestealers

  • Eyeless Face: In their true forms, they have no facial features apart from a mouth full of sharp teeth.
  • Out-of-Character Alert: They can mimic a person's appearance perfectly, but that doesn't extend to speech. They speak in a very stilted and formal manner — for example, referring to people by their full names — and have a hard time understanding social cues.
  • They Look Like Us Now: They can look exactly like existing people, though once they start talking it's easy to tell there's something off.

Rip Van Winkle



  • Because You Were Nice to Me: The reason she's so obsessed with JD is because they were the first person to believe in her.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Attempts to do this to the heroine when she finds out that she and JD are an item, believing she seduced JD away from her.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: She and JD had a fling many years ago, and she still hasn't gotten over them, to Stalker with a Crush and Murder the Hypotenuse levels. The season five summary even calls her this nearly word for word.
  • Selective Obliviousness: JD is very clear about the fact that their relationship with her is long over, but she just ignores that. She also ignores pretty much everything the heroine ever says to her.
    Heroine: (I swear, this girl's selective hearing is weapons-grade. You could stab her and she'd choose to ignore the wound.)
  • Stalker with a Crush: To JD, her ex.
  • Stock Ness Monster: She's the Loch Ness Monster.

    Razi's Route 

Jonas Quinton

  • Barred from the Afterlife: His theory for why he becomes a ghost, because of all the children he brought to Baba Yaga.
  • Eaten Alive: He's eaten alive by Baba Yaga in Razi's fifth season.
  • Mind-Control Music: He enchants people into doing his bidding by playing notes on his guitar.
  • Public Domain Character: He's clearly based on the Pied Piper, though it's unclear if he's actually the same person from the story, or just a descendant.
  • Wrecked Weapon: In Razi's second season, the heroine smashes his guitar rocker-style with considerable glee.
    Heroine: Thank you, Indianapolis! Good night!

The Manticore

  • Animal Eyes: His eyes have green-yellow irises. When he transforms, the iris takes up the entirety of the visible eye and slit pupils can be seen.
  • Baleful Polymorph: The Nassars transform him into a scorpion. JD then keeps him as a pet.
  • Beard of Evil: The heroine notes that his beard contributes to making him look like a villain.
    Heroine: (That's the thing about big beards. They either give off a cozy lumberjack vibe, or they're...almost villainous.)
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: He has a scorpion tail with an extremely potent and fast-acting venom.
  • Nemean Skinning: His clothing is made entirely from the skins of different animals.
  • Our Manticores Are Spinier: Rather than the quadrupedal version seen in mythology, this version is humanoid with only Animal Eyes and a scorpion tail to indicate his monstrous nature. Like most of the setting's cryptids, he can also take on a human appearance which lacks those features, though considering he's a huge muscular shirtless dude with a thick beard and a man-bun he's still visibly strange-looking.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: He wants to eat Mothman, and he's willing to hunt them across several states to do it, no matter who or what stands in the way. The prospect of fighting Havenfall's multiple supernatural defenders doesn't deter him in the slightest; it takes Razi and Roshni transforming him into a tiny scorpion to be rid of the threat he poses.

Baba Yaga


  • Blow You Away: He has storm-related abilities, including the power to summon strong winds.
  • Eaten Alive: Baba Yaga eats him (offscreen this time, thankfully) to regain her power after Razi nearly kills her in his fifth season.
  • Public Domain Character: From the tale of "Hansel and Gretel." "Lettie" is his sister, Gretel. Unfortunately, in this version the witch was Baba Yaga and the story did not end happily for the siblings.
  • Roc Birds: He is identified as a roc.
  • Shock and Awe: Part of his storm powers is the ability to generate lightning. The heroine describes him as a thunderbird, presumably because of this.
  • Sizeshifter: He can make himself larger.
  • Winged Humanoid: Hansel is humanoid, but with wings in place of his arms. It's indicated that he was transformed into this shape by Baba Yaga.

    Vanessa's Route 

Siniang Li

  • Chinese Vampire: She's dressed in robes and wears a paper talisman on her head. She doesn't seem to be a different creature type from the other vampires seen in the series, however.
  • Femme Fatalons: She wears pointed nail sheaths on one hand.
  • Master of Illusion: She can make people see things. In Vanessa's first season, she tricks the heroine into leaving her house by making her see Grace, and at the climax traps Vanessa in reliving her worst memory. In Diego's seventh season, when the heroes' party comes to take out Dracula, she makes them see illusions of herself, Dracula, and Necahual asleep while the real ones close in on them.
  • Paper Talisman: Wears one over one side of her face.
  • Seeks Another's Resurrection: She's trying to use the heroine to resurrect Dracula.
  • Unholy Matrimony: She's one of Dracula's brides.


See her entry in Diego's Route above.

The Third Bride / Nitiqret

  • Affably Evil: She's polite and friendly when she comes to talk to the heroine, and even offers to not kill her and take only what blood she needs to resurrect Dracula if the heroine agrees to do so willingly.
  • Animate Dead: She can raise the dead, and in Vanessa's route is able to single-handedly start a zombie apocalypse. She's even said to have the power to fully resurrect the dead as vampires, which is implied to be how Eva was brought back in Diego's route.
  • The Ghost: She's referenced to varying amounts in Diego, Vanessa, and Antonio's routes, but doesn't appear in person until the beginning of Vanessa's fifth season.
  • Lesbian Vampire: Of the bisexual variety. She's very interested in the heroine in Vanessa and Antonio's routes.
    • In Vanessa's route, she's the one who partially turns the heroine into a vampire, with the intent to have her become the fourth bride.
      Heroine: Go screw yourself.
      Nitiqret: Oh, but it'd be so much more fun if you joined me.
    • In Antonio's route, she tells the heroine that she and Dracula would love to have her for dinner some time, and makes it pretty clear that she means that "in a more Biblical sense." The invitation is extended to Antonio as well.
      Heroine: Did we just get invited to an orgy?
      Antonio: You get used to it.
  • The Older Immortal: She tells the heroine that she's older than both Li and Necahual combined.
  • Seeks Another's Resurrection: She wants to resurrect Dracula using the heroine's blood.
  • Terms of Endangerment: In Vanessa's route, she calls the heroine "Sweet Thing," much to her irritation.
  • Unholy Matrimony: She's Dracula's first wife, and seems to genuinely love him. It's also indicated in Antonio's route that the other brides are as much her wives as they are Dracula's.


See his entry in Diego's Route above.

The Helsing Order

  • Hunter of Monsters: They're an order of humans who hunt supernaturals, founded by the Van Helsing who the Dracula character was based on.
  • Hypocrite: As it turns out, they don't exactly practice what they preach all the time.
    Vanessa: All those years of 'no shortcuts' and 'hard work makes all the difference', and they were drugging us the whole time!
  • The Order: As one might assume from the name.
  • Power-Up Food: The meal replacement shakes that all hunters drink turn out to be an experimental concoction with performance-enhancing properties.
  • Renegade Splinter Faction: A heroic inversion; In her fifth season, Vanessa is contacted by a sect within the Order who also disapprove of the direction the Order's leaders have taken it in, and are working to change it.
    "The Order has strayed from its original purpose, and we intend to return it to the correct path."
  • Shoot the Dog: They order Vanessa to kill the heroine because she could be used to resurrect Dracula.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: What they've shaped up to be, with their overly pragmatic methods of dealing with supernatural threats, often crossing into Do Unto Others Before They Do Unto Us or Van Helsing Hate Crimes, but with the ultimately heroic goal of protecting humanity.

Director Marina Townsend


  • Bald of Evil: He's bald and is the main antagonist of Vanessa's final season.
  • Master of Illusion: Whenever he appears in public it's an illusion because he's physically very weak.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: All his power lies in his mental powers, and he's physically very frail and weak.
  • Power Floats: Whenever he appears to the heroine and Vanessa he floats about fifty feet above the ground. Subverted, however, since that's just an illusion, and he shows no signs of floating when they face him in person.
  • Prophet Eyes: His eyes are completely white.
  • Public Domain Character: He's Nosferatu.
  • Scary Teeth: He's not just got fangs, all his teeth are long and sharp.
  • Supernatural Fear Inducer: His main power is his ability to control people by inducing great fear in them.
  • We Can Rule Together: Mistaking the heroine for an immensely powerful vampire due to believing that she has the Helsing Heir under her thrall and misinterpreting the fact that her eyes are only red sometimes as her being powerful enough to hide them (instead of her being only half-vampire), he wants her to join his inner circle.

    Antonio's Route 


  • Detachment Combat: Throws his own animate severed arm at the heroine in an attempt to keep her from escaping.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: The first thing the heroine notices about him, and his main defining characteristic for his first couple of appearances, is that he looks incredibly tired and has heavy dark circles under his eyes. The game interface initially labels him as "Will Sleep When He's Dead."
  • Kill It with Fire: The heroine and Antonio burn his body to make sure he stays dead this time after they finally defeat him in season three.
  • Losing Your Head: Decapitation barely inconveniences him, as his head and the rest of his body parts remain conscious and animate. One of his sprites has Igor carrying his own severed head in the crook of his arm.
  • Public Domain Character: He's the Igor, assistant to Dr. Frankenstein as popularly depicted in several films and adaptations.
  • Scary Stitches: Underneath his long-sleeved, high-necked shirt, his body has been visibly stitched together.


  • Age Without Youth: Unlike the other immortal or long-lived characters of the setting, Frankenstein has been keeping himself alive for centuries with science and mentions that he lacks a vampire's perpetual youth. This is probably at least part of the reason that he keeps that full-face plague doctor mask on.
  • Badass Bandolier: He wears a bandolier across his chest.
  • Mad Doctor: His work is responsible for Igor and the reanimated mooks that menace Antonio and the heroine in Antonio's route. He's after the heroine to make use of the special properties of her body for his own purposes - which involves dissecting her. Needless to say, he's not particularly concerned about her opinions on the matter.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Averted and lampshaded. When the heroine tries to clarify that Antonio really is referring to the Dr. Frankenstein, Antonio remarks that he doesn't think Frankenstein actually holds a doctorate, and indeed when he starts showing up he's simply referred to as "Frankenstein" without the "Doctor" honorific. When the heroine snarks about what kind of medical school he must have gone to, he describes himself as self-taught.
  • Plague Doctor: He wears the full costume, and given that he's several centuries old he very likely started wearing it back when such suits were in common use.
  • Public Domain Character: First mentioned in a throwaway reference in Antonio's first season. When he shows up properly in the third season, he confirms the name, though from his comments it's not clear if he's meant to be the actual Victor Frankenstein from Mary Shelley's novel or if he simply appropriated the appellation.
  • Theseus' Ship Paradox: He's survived for so long by replacing his body parts when they wear out. He explicitly references this trope when revealing that.
    Frankenstein: I still have the heart of a man, you know. Not my own heart. Just a heart.

The Cult of Blood

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: One cultist acts especially caring toward the heroine, and she internally nicknames them Concerned Cultist, or CC for short.
  • Blind Obedience: Although they kidnap the heroine, they do so in order to serve her. The Concerned Cultist falls into this especially.
    Heroine: Will you do that for me?
    Concerned Cultist: Of course. I'd do anything for you.
    Heroine: [...] (So at least one good thing is coming out of this cult status. Blind, unquestioning loyalty.)
  • In the Hood: They all wear cloaks with the hoods up.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: They all wear white, full-face masks, with the only part of their face visible being their eyes.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: According to Antonio, the Cult of Blood is regarded as a joke. However, they prove capable of being a threat.
  • Power Nullifier: They can nullify vampire powers.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: They have this colour scheme, shown most clearly with their black cloaks lined with red.
  • Secret Circle of Secrets: They're a spooky secret society dedicated to the Lady of Blood.
  • Stupid Sacrifice: Toward the end of Antonio's fifth season, CC helps the heroine and Antonio escape the other cultists in the amusement park. After they've managed to escape, the heroine asks CC to come with them, especially since the othe cultists definitely saw them helping her escape. Instead, they slit their own throat so that they won't be a liability.

The Master

  • Broken Faceplate: After Victor's deception is revealed, the Master is enraged to the point that his mask develops a number of cracks in it.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: The Master is described as having a deep, rumbling voice.
  • The Master: Their leader tells the heroine that he has the others call him this, in traditional vampire fashion.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The Master's red eyes show him to be a vampire and help distinguish him from other members of the cult, many of whom are human.
  • Skull for a Head: Underneath his mask, his face resembles a skull because his skin has dried out and sunk in considerably.
  • Undead Abomination: After his mask completely shatters, he's revealed to be a revenant, which is a kind of supernatural adjacent to vampires that's sometimes created when a vampire tries to turn someone. They're more powerful than vampires, but are unable to turn people.

Victor Thorne

See his entry in Diego's Route above.


  • Death Seeker: The heroine realizes during their final confrontation that he's not expecting to come out of it alive, and in fact seems to welcome that outcome.
  • Only One Name: His last name is unknown to the protagonists.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: His daughter was turned into a vampire by Victor, who then tortured her by depriving her of blood for long enough that she turned feral, before setting her loose. Benedict was forced to kill her.
  • Revenge by Proxy: He's going after Antonio because Victor, who Antonio sired, killed his daughter.
  • Rogue Agent: He's acting without the Helsing Order's permission.
  • Vampire Hunter: He's one of the Helsing Order's top hunters.


    Vampires and Werewolves 

Annabelle Sheppard

  • Ascended Extra: She goes from being an unnamed follower of Damien to a member of Mackenzie's pack. According to a Q&A tweet, she was given a much larger part in Mackenzie's story because of how well her character was received.
  • Covered with Scars: She's covered with scars from the werewolf attack that turned her. It's implied to be the reason she wears long sleeves.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Annabelle starts out as an unnamed werewolf working with Damien, but ends up joining Mackenzie's pack after he's defeated.
  • Honorary Aunt: She's referred to as the triplets' Aunt Annabelle in Mackenzie's tenth season.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Like other werewolves in the setting, shifting only gives her wolf ears, shaggier hair, gold eyes, and fangs.
  • Polyamory: In a heart scene in Mackenzie's eighth season, she implies that she'd be happy to have multiple spouses.
  • Relationship Upgrade: She and Damien enter a casual relationship in Mackenzie's sixth season.
  • Shipper on Deck: For the heroine and Mackenzie.
  • Undying Loyalty: She is extremely loyal to Mackenzie because she gave her a home and a family by making her pack.
    Annabelle: For Mackenzie? Anything.

Liliane Labasque

See her entry in Antagonists (Mackenzie's Route) above.

Evangelina Vasquez

  • Affectionate Nickname: Antonio calls her "Evita".
  • Back from the Dead:
    • When she first appears in Diego's sixth season, she confirms that she really was dead as Diego and Antonio had believed, but explains that she has been brought back and transformed into a vampire. The details of how this was accomplished remain unclear, beyond that Dracula was responsible.
    • She's brought back by Frankenstein in Antonio's route, but as a human instead of a vampire.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Her resurrection is around 500 years after her death, so she is new to the modern world.
  • First Love: She was Diego's first love, but did not reciprocate his feelings.
  • In-Series Nickname: Her friends call her "Eva".
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: What attracts her to Elmer.
  • Transgender: She's MTF transgender. In Antonio's fourth season, she learns about the various pride flags and is ecstatic to discover that there's one for "people like me." Antonio promptly buys her a trans pride flag pin to wear.

    Cryptids and Ghosts 


  • Handy Man: While their day job is as an auto mechanic, they also do everything from home renovation to arcade machine repair, all with a friendly smile.
  • The Mothman: They're the Mothman.
  • Nice Guy: An all-around amiable person.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: They're only known as Mothman while on screen. While they do have a name besides that, they're okay just going by Mothman, saying they can go by their name at home and being around supernaturals is a chance to let their own supernatural side out.
  • Relationship Upgrade: They finally get together with Roshni at the end of Razi's fifth season.
    Heroine: Mothman, you broke the Nassar Curse of Obliviousness!
  • Sensor Character: They can detect a magical trap with their antennae.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: Mothman hails from West Virginia, speaks with down-home slang terms like "y'all"... and numbers opera and linguistics among their interests. In Razi's second season, the protagonist is surprised to learn that they work as a mechanic in their day-to-day life; based on the conversation thus far, she'd expected to hear that they were in some kind of academic field.
  • Transgender: Despite the name, Mothman is bigender and uses they/them pronouns.
  • Winged Humanoid: When they transform, they get a pair of moth wings on their back that they can use to fly around with, and a pair of feathery antennae appears on their head.

Gwen Doran

See her entry in Antagonists (Mackenzie's Route) above.

Lettie / Gretel

  • Demonic Possession: Soon after she appears in Razi's fourth season, Lettie possesses the heroine and takes control of her body. She's a ghost rather than a demon, and she isn't malevolent, so she's eventually persuaded to give up control of the heroine's body in return for help against Baba Yaga.
  • Eaten Alive: She was eaten by Baba Yaga, which is how she ended up as a ghost.
  • Ghostly Chill: Coming into contact with Lettie gives the heroine the sensation of a cold chill.
  • Ghostly Goals: She wants to save her brother from Baba Yaga, and begs Havenfall's Finest for their help.
  • Precocious Crush: She develops a childish crush on Razi. The heroine mostly seems to find it cute.
  • Public Domain Character: "Lettie" turns out to be a nickname. Her real given name is Gretel, sister to Hansel.
  • Undead Child: She was a young girl when she died, and despite being a ghost for two hundred years she's still innocent and immature. It's played for pathos rather than spookiness; realizing how young and how afraid Lettie is awakens the heroine's Big Sister Instinct and gives her and Havenfall's Finest motivation to find a way to help.

John Lapin

  • Glamour Failure: He can make himself look like a normal bunny, but still has antlers in that form.
  • Horned Humanoid: He has antlers.
  • Jackalope: He is one.
  • Little Bit Beastly: He looks mostly human, but has huge bunny ears, antlers, and a rabbit nose.
  • Meaningful Name: "Lapin" means rabbit, and he's a rabbit-based cryptid.
  • Odd Friendship: With Levana, combined with Fire-Forged Friends. They don't exactly start off on good footing, especially given his supernatural nature and her being a Hunter, but they eventually become very close.
  • Playing Possum: He can play dead very convincingly if he gets cornered.
  • Romantic Asexual: He says that he "[doesn't] that" when JD makes a joke about being happy to finally not be "the only horny one" in town. He's also been confirmed by Word of God to be biromantic.


  • Birds of a Feather: He and JD bond instantly over their similarities.
    Heroine: (Turns out Emilio and JD are one and the same in a lot of ways. Energy, movie taste, and doing the stupidest shit they can for no reason.)
  • Chupacabra: He is one.
  • Delinquent Hair: His hair is styled in a spiky mowhawk.

    The Nassars 

Razi Nassar

See his entry in Love Interests above.

Roshni Nassar

  • Drama Queen: She has a lot of dramatic reactions to things. For example, when she sees the heroine in her bowling alley uniform, she shrieks and rounds on Razi:
    Roshni: Your moon and stars, walking around in what Dad picked out in the 70s?! Simply dreadful! You should be treating her like a princess! Draping her in silks!
  • Oblivious to Love: Mothman has a very obvious crush on her, but she seems completely unaware. In a season 4 heart scene, Lettie tells them they'd make a cute couple, but Roshni just looks confused and asks, "A couple of what?"
    MC: (No! It's the Nassar Curse of Obliviousness!)
  • Really 700 Years Old: Her exact age hasn't been stated, but since Razi is well over a hundred years old and Roshni is his older sister, she has at least a century and change to her name as well.
  • Relationship Upgrade: She and Mothman finally get together at the end of Razi's fifth season.
  • Signature Scent: Roshni always smells of jasmine in the same way that Razi smells of oud.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's as tall as Razi, and stunningly gorgeous.
  • Tranquil Fury: When the heroine observes her fighting the manticore, she notes that she has this in common with Razi.

Rahim Nassar

  • The Cavalry: Rahim shows up in Razi's fifth season just in time to help Havenfall's Finest stop Razi, controlled by Baba Yaga, from being forced to kill them and give the leylines over to her.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has a deadpan delivery for his quips.
  • The Mourning After: Rahim had a human lover who died under traumatic circumstances as a result of the Nassars trying to use the power of the leylines to make him immortal. His beloved's death wounded Rahim so badly that he left Havenfall and cut off all contact with his family for decades; even when he acknowledges during Razi's fifth season that healing is possible, he says that he's not ready to move on just yet.
  • Really 700 Years Old: His age is never stated, but like his siblings he's been alive a lot longer than his appearance would suggest. His relationship with the lover mentioned above lasted long enough that outliving his partner became a serious concern, and it's implied that the schism between Rahim and the rest of his family has lasted longer than the heroine has been alive.
  • Second Love: He starts dating again in Razi's seventh season, and is eventually persuaded to bring his new boyfriend to the heroine and Razi's wedding. Fifteen years later, they're engaged.
  • Signature Scent: He's noted to smell like arabica coffee, in the same way that Razi smells of oud and Roshni of jasmine.

Rashid Nassar

  • Glowing Eyes: He's immensely powerful, and this is visually indicated by his eyes glowing when he's calling up that power.
  • The Patriarch: He is the head of the extended Nassar family.
  • Really 700 Years Old: As Razi, Roshni, and Rahim's father, he's definitely a lot older than he looks.

Roshanak Nassar


Hikari Hayashi

  • Alliterative Name: Hikari Hayashi.
  • Animals Hate Him: Spike isn't very enthusiastic about being at Hikari's command, and frequently skips out on her to hang out with the heroine and JD instead.
  • Curtains Match the Window: In her human form, her eyes are fuchsia, matching her pink hair.
  • Freudian Excuse: She had to deal with having Lucifer for a father, as the heroine can point out to JD.
    MC: Hikari might have done some lousy stuff in the past, but she's Lucifer's kid too. She's been through all the same garbage you had to go through to get here. I don't think anyone gets through that unscathed.
  • Friendship Denial: As she spends more time with Havenfall's Finest, she denies any attachment on her part; if accepting an invitation to hang out, she'll make an excuse like "Someone has to keep an eye on you losers."
  • Horned Humanoid: As one of Lucifer's children, she has small black horns, which remain in her human form.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: In her pixie form, her eyes are solid black aside from white spots that appear to be light reflections.
  • Non-Human Humanoid Hybrid: Pixie from her mother's side, devil from her father's side. She refers to herself as a pixie and mostly looks like one aside from her horns.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She asks the heroine for help with getting Spike to like her; the heroine teaches her to be nice to him and offer treats. The next time they're seen together, their relationship has improved hugely; Spike happily assists her in exchange for snacks. It's a huge revelation to her that being kind to people often results in them wanting to help.
  • Winged Humanoid: She has colorful wings in her pixie form.


  • Big Friendly Dog: He covers the heroine's face with licks soon after meeting her, and takes up a whole couch when he lies down on it.
  • Extra Eyes: He has an extra pair of eyes when transformed.
  • Hellhound: He is one.
  • Intellectual Animal: He's a dog and not capable of speech, but Spike is clearly capable of understanding human speech and of exercising some degree of reasoning.
  • Teleportation: He can teleport between Earth and Hell, and by passing through Hell and using it as a shortcut, he can teleport around Earth. He uses it for fetch, catching a toy thrown a huge distance away before it hits the ground.




  • Ambiguously Human: She smells weird to werewolves despite otherwise seeming to be human, and being near her has an immediate dampening effect on the heroine's bloodlust in Diego's route. Lucifer also insinuates that she's hiding some darkness after having possessed her in JD's route. She's revealed to actually be Baba Yaga in Razi's fifth season.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Despite her seeming kindness and employment of Grace, she is very quick to judge or assume the worst. Outright stated by Lucifer in JD's season four. Brought to an extreme in Razi's fifth season where it's revealed that she is actually Baba Yaga.
  • Demonic Possession: Possessed by Lucifer on multiple occasions in JD's route.
  • Power Nullifier: For some reason, being near Luce completely kills the heroine's bloodlust in Diego's route.

Deputy Elmer

  • Clueless Deputy: Downplayed since he's shown to be at least competent, but he's completely in the dark about all the supernatural stuff going on in town.
  • Nice Guy: He's a nice and friendly guy.
  • Ship Tease: He develops a crush on Eva in Diego's route, and they get together in both Diego and Antonio's routes.

Vanessa Helsing

See her entry in Love Interests above.

Levana Helsing

Amare and Randolph Hunt

  • Good Parents: They are loving and supportive parents to Mackenzie.
  • Recessive Super Genes: They carry werewolf genes, but don't have any powers aside from increased lifespan.
  • Unnamed Parent: Although they first appear in Mackenzie's sixth season, they are referred to only as "Mackenzie's Mom" and "Mackenzie's Dad" until their names are finally revealed in the eighth season.

Abraham van Helsing

Avram and Jordana Helsing

  • Hands-Off Parenting: A major source of tension between Vanessa and them.
  • Shared Family Quirks: The heroine is taken aback by how many mannerisms Vanessa shares with them.
  • Vampire Hunter: They're also members of the Helsing Order, and Avram was formerly the Helsing Heir.
