    Chara Dreemurr 
A lemony, cold and easily angered but golden hearted 12-years-old girl that dares to face head-on the mysteries of Inside Falls alongside her little twin.
  • Action Survivor: When she doesn't fight, she is a expert on surviving in a complicated scenario. Shown in a pretty extreme detail in "Terrorcalypse - Part 1", where she survives three days in a insane apocalypse with the Zodiac Demons' troop specially targeting her, and lacking the basic things to survive.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Has a character more complex than her canon counterpart.
  • Adaptational Heroism/Adaptational Nice Guy: She's much more heroic and/or pleasant than her morally ambiguous canon self.
  • Adorably Precocious Child
  • Adorkable
  • Agent Mulder: There isn't really anything Chara doesn't believe on. Not that she is wrong.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: In "Many Charas", she reveals that her first name used to be a reason of mockery, since she has a birthmark of a star (Beta Canum Venaticorum) that is also known as Chara.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Averted. She is a female on the fanfic.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: In "Hallowater" and "Reversal Trovato", situations of stress make her go Laughing Mad, and in the former chapter, she snaps herself out of the first situation while on the second time she needs Frisk's help to do so. It suggest she has possibly a mental disease that affects stress.
    • In "A Fable of Two Gems", she briefly snaps after the Author talks to her, and Frisk has to be close to her to keep her on check. It's not explained by the narration if it's a full-blown paradoxical laughter and/or if she had a psychotic breakdown.
  • Anti-Hero: Has more shades of the modern variant (cynical, cold, sometimes pretty creepy, willing to get her hands dirty) than the classical one (secretly insecure).
  • The Anti-Nihilist: Her "World of Cardboard" Speech in "Terrorcalypse - Part 2" proves for sure she's actually this deep inside.
  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: Chara, who is normally very insecure and/or pretty angry-sour, takes a large part on the Rousing Speech that convinces Inside Falls to fight agains't the Zodiac Demons.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Badass Bookworm: An avid reader of books (mainly the third Book about the secrets of Inside Falls), but doesn't stop her of doing anything. She fights heads on a cursed clay statue of Aslan, the king of Narnia himself, with nothing but a knife, and wins. Not counting her fulfilling the challenges of the Inklings and standing up to them while refusing to kill Mettaton, standing up to Jasper even after being beated up by Cloud Cuckoolander Cat Girl Kebako, and taking down Peridot aboard her giant robot to save Frisk.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't call her cute because of her Blush Stickers. In "Clay-Heads", she discounts her rage on a door and grows even more determined to solve the mystery.
    • She absolutely and deeply hates Etoile, Patricia/Peridot and The Zodiac Demons because they, in one way or another, made some kind of evil towards her family. The hatred for Etoile ended after "Rosenqueen Palace Mystery", when she learned she is actually decent and became friends with her.
  • Big Sister Instinct: NEVER harm her little twin sister Frisk.
  • Brainy Brunette
  • Blush Stickers
  • Butt-Monkey: She doesn't seem to have the best luck.
  • Catapult Nightmare: In "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical". The Zodiac Demons drop her from the mindscape roof into a black void of nothing, and she wakes up falling from the actual roof. And hurting herself.
  • Catch Phrase: Tends to say "Holy mackerel" when shocked, specially on the second arc.
  • Commonality Connection: Chara rebuilts her love for Grauntie Pearl because of her backstory and because both she and Pearl share a Big Sister Instinct (or in Pearl's case, a Little Sister Instinct) towards their respective sisters (Frisk and Garnet). Later, she bonds with Garnet through a magical girl tabletop game.
  • Creepy Child: Althrough she's ultimately benevolent, her Black Humor jokes in early chapters, almost-murderous esque hatred for her enemies and tendency to arm with knives to combat the supernatural can make her come across as this, a bit like her canon self.
  • The Comically Serious: She sometimes comes cross as this.
  • Character Development: Not only on the lessons she learns trough the chapters, but in the fact that her true, Hidden Heart of Gold starts showing up more often after certain chapters.
    • Also, she starts the fanfic hating Grauntie Pearl (a narrative line from "Clay-Heads" makes it explict), but slowly starts to like her as family.
  • The Cynic: Mainly in early chapters.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Demonic Possession: In "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical", courtesy of Zalgo.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Played with. Chara's name was a reason of mockery due to it being a nickname to a star she has a birthmark shaped after, but that doesn't mean she stopped reffering to herself as Chara.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: She already had big and black ones before "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical", but in that chapter, it ends up being taken Up to Eleven.
  • Fatal Flaw:
    • Her mental breakdown in "Hallowater" doesn't make her have enough time to grab the candies before they could fall into the water.
    • Her Unstoppable Rage in the moments she finally snaps.
  • Foil: To Frisk. Chara involves her hidden golden heart with a pretty bitter exterior, while Frisk doesn't try to make a effort to hide her idealism.
  • Girliness Upgrade: Subverted. In "Chara vs Femeninity", while under the wing of the Inklings, she starts adopting more femenine characteristics and starts to even wear dresses. But when she realizes the true cost of beauty on the Inkling's opinion (as in, mercilessy kill the sentient robot Mettaton), she decides to return to her former tomboy self.
  • Guile Hero: Chara prefers using her wits and intelligence to solve problems and mysteries. Until her Knight Templar Big Brother mode is activated or her Berserk Button is pressed; THEN, all bets are off.
  • Guilty Pleasures: "Chara vs Femeninity" shows she loves death metal.
  • Hates Wearing Dresses: She states in "Sailor Solar System Planets and Satellites" skirts are her worst nightmares. In a earlier chapter, "Rosenqueen Palace Mystery", Etoile has to pick a feminine tuxedo for Chara only to avoid the possibility of the later wearing dresses.
  • The Hero
  • Iconic Outfit: Her sunhat with a buttercup, green and yellow jumper, dark blue hoodie, dark gray pants and black shoes.
  • The Insomniac: Her design shows her with bags bigger than Dipper's and with a black color, suggesting she has this trope. She in fact becomes one in "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical", so much that she starts to randomly fall on the ground.
  • Ironic Name: Mild example, but Chara in greek means "joy", and while Chara does have her heart of gold, she is not a one-hundred-percent cheerful child.
  • Interspecies Friendship: She and Frisk love and accept alot their non-human cousin Asriel. Both also became really friendly to Gaster during the events of "Association Of the Blank Mind".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She is cynic, but also rougher around the edges than her twin, and with a temper that can easily go to a Rage Breaking Point. Nevertheless, she is ultimately a kid that can do good deeds and will be happy as long as any of her family members and friends are safe.
  • Kid Hero: A 12-years old girl that is facing some pretty scarring anomalies on her summer.
  • Knife Nut: She's a (as some of the fanfic's first arc chapters show up) unstable but ultimately benevolent child and in the chapters "Clay-Heads", "Hallowater", "Nightbandits" and "Sailor Solar System Planets and Satellites", she arms herself with knives.
  • Last-Second Word Swap: In "Reversal Trovato", while complaining about the mess Frisk's friends made on the bedroom, she almost swears (yes, she, a 12-going-to-13 years old girl, almost swears) before trading the swear to the word "terrible".
  • Laughing Mad: When she finally meets Garnet, the Author, she ends up laughing in a way that's described as "maniacal".
  • Memento MacGuffin: In the beginning of "The Slack-battle", Pearl gives to Chara a heart locket containing a picture of the Crystal Shack members in a goofy but happy moment. This shows that, behind the mystery seeking nature and the cynic, wrathful behavior, she is a good kid who has her family's best interests in mind.
  • Ms. Vice Girl: She seems to have a Wrath motif going on (being a Knight Templar Big Brother, going Unstoppable Rage mode slightly easier than Dipper). It doesnt change the fact she bravely stands up agains't a psycho Deliberately Cute Child and a group of Eldritch Abomination's much more powerful than her.
  • Nice Hat: Her hat is a yellow and white sunhat with a yellow buttercup flower on the center, which she gained after losing her original, green one for the Slendytubbies.
  • Platonic Declaration of Love: In "Here We Are" (combined with Anguished Declaration of Love).
    L-lapis...why didn't I tell you how amazing you I wish you were my older you're dead and its all my fault...
  • Polar Opposite Twins: She and Frisk even opposes themselves in skin and hair colors, despite sharing a female gender.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: In "Peridot's Ascension", alongside Shut Up, Hannibal!.
    You'll eat those words, twerp.
  • Seeker Archetype
  • Sibling Team: Forms one with her little twin sister Frisk.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: And her Butt-Monkey status prove that.
  • Stepford Smiler: "Frisk and The Secret World" shows that despite her chill and serious posture, she is completely broken from the events of "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical". Frisk says Chara was traumatized from the events of the chapter, and Chara herself panics when she thinks Garnet suffered Demonic Possession as well.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: As "Chara vs Femeninity" and "Monster-Vocals" show up, like her canon self, she likes chocolate.
  • Took a Level in Badass: From "Clay-Heads" onwards, she becomes better at fighting the anomalies that threaten her and her family/friends.
  • Tomboy: She doesn't seem to follow the common girl pattern.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: In "Association Of the Blank Mind"; although Pearl just made a ponytail to keep Chara's hair safe from the junkyard's dirt, it's pretty fitting for her mystery-obsessed, non-girlish personality.
  • Twirl of Love: A sisterly love version she and Frisk share on "Terrorcalypse - Part 2" that ultimately frees Frisk from Friskworld's charm.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When she meets the Zodiac Demons once more in "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical", she goes nuts with rage as she remembers the damage they caused and helped cause on her family.
You helped Peridot and tried to invade Grauntie Pearl's mind! You tried to hurt my cousin and my SISTER! YOU MONSTERS!
    Frisk Dreemurr 
Chara's little mixed twin sister, with a much more visible optimism (and most of the time softspoken behavior). She promises to be there for her big sister if necessary.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Has a character more complex than her canon counterpart.
  • Adorkable
  • Affectionate Nickname: Asriel tends to call her "rose". Chara, in her playful moments, tends to call her "Frisky".
  • All-Loving Heroine: Her heart is insanely big, and she loves almost everyone.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Even though she is Chara's twin sister, she spots a light shade of brown for a skin color. Twins with differing race colors DO exist, but the skin color ancestry of Frisk is never directly explained.
  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: More subtle if compared to Chara, but Frisk looks like she's absorbing a bit less the personal problems of her loved one's lives like they were hers and she seems to be maturing from her medieval adventure's fantasies.
  • Apologises a Lot: She tends to bark more apologies than really necessary.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Averted. She is a female on the fanfic.
  • The Atoner: Her motivation to take on the Beldam, a creature that prays on children and will use every trick on her book to make them stay and sewn buttons on their eyes, is to repay all the times Chara sacrificed something to her (she feels helping Chara get her body back from Zalgo was a pretty minor repayment).
  • The Baby of the Bunch: She is fifteen minutes younger than Chara.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: If she's along her sister Chara and her adoptive cousin Asriel, Frisk is the Beauty to Chara's Brains and Asriel's Brawn. If she's with her two friends Amethyst and Connie, Frisk is the Beauty to Connie's Brains and Amethyst's Brawn.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's the most sweet girl compared to her cynic but also nice sister, but she can be as bad to deal as her sister when pushed far enough.
  • The Beastmaster: In "Nightbandits", she summons neon animals to attack the Zodiac Demons.
  • Big Sister Worship: Some instances shows how much Frisk loves her older twin sister.
  • Break the Cutie: A very mild example, but once she discovers about how she was selfish in a blind way in "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical", she cries some quiet tears of regret.
    • Her worst one so far is in "She Lied All Along", when she is faced with a harsh situation of which person she should choose to trust: Chara or Pearl.
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: How she nicknames Chara-Zalgo.
    Zalgo Chara! Zalgara.
  • Closet Geek: She is a fan of Bendy, a cartoon from the 30's. Season 2 Arc chapters show she also likes Spongebob Squarepants.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Downplayed. She has her quirks here and there, but not on Mabel levels.
  • Cooldown Hug: Inverted in a way. In "Terrorcalypse - Part 2", after listening to Chara's speech, she cries and hugs Chara to try and find comfort.
  • Cool Loser: Although Chara does top her, Frisk is a cool, creative girl, and certainly nicer than her rival Etoile.
  • Curiosity Is a Crapshoot: In "Nihon No Zōn", her curiosity to test the Vocal Diva's switches leaded to them becoming too much obedient and throwing out Amethyst and Connie, whom they mistook for people trying to harm Frisk. Thankfully, afterwards, she turns the switch off before they can become crazier.
  • Cute Bruiser: A lovable child that has pacifist ideals. But that'll break them if really necessary.
  • Demonic Possession: In "From-Midnight-2-Night", the four ghosts end up using her as a communication vessel.
  • Deuteragonist: Recieves some good deal of focus like her older sister.
  • Disabled in the Adaptation: The reason for Canon!Frisk to have perpetually squinted/closed eyes is unknown in-canon and has varied answers in the fandom. Here, it's explained as a case of photophobia.
  • Emotionally Tongue-Tied: She sometimes has a big difficulty turning down people.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She wishes for many world nations to be more peaceful and is much more hopeful than her older twin sister, but even she thinks the Zodiac Demons don't deserve compassion, since she attempts to attack them when they mess up with Chara, insults them calling them "bastard monsters" when they kill the Bendy trio and attacks them alongside Chara and Asriel.
  • Eye Scream: When she is temporarily transformed into a zombie, one of her eyes is out of it's eye socket, hanging only by a bowel.
  • Eyes Always Shut: She perpetually squints her eyes...unless she is inside a place with no light, like the Bottomless Hole.
  • Fatal Flaw:
    • Like Mabel, she has a selfishness problem (despite her selfless wish for worldwide peace), albeit a unconscious variant: she was unaware about some selfish facets of her personality. And she really feels bad when she discovers and has to accept this fact in "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical".
    • Curiosity becomes a big one for her in "Nihon No Zōn".
    • Low self-esteem ends up triggering the plot of "Great Chara", since Chara decides to sacrifice her height to make Frisk happy, eventually crumbling into Peridot getting her hands on the flashlight with the size-shifting crystal.
  • Foil: To Chara. Frisk doesn't try to make a effort to hide her idealism, while Chara involves her hidden golden heart with a pretty bitter exterior.
  • Frequently-Broken Unbreakable Vow: "Association Of the Blank Mind" reveals she consider her pacifist ideals as this, after frequently fighting agains't the supernatural with her sister. And the guilt is horrible for her.
  • Friend or Idol Decision: In "The Frisk, the Chara and the Future", Eros' offers to create a time bubble with the rift. Knowing that it is a important object under the guard of Garnet and Chara, Frisk refuses to give it making Slender reveal that he possessed Eros.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She loves animals to the point she adopts a hybrid of two pet animals and summmons neon animals as a mean of attack.
  • Genki Girl: Downplayed alongside Cloudcuckoolander above. Some situations can make her blood boil (sometimes with bad results), but she is pretty calm, down-to-earth and peaceful most of the time.
  • Getting Smilies Painted on Your Soul: Her brainwashing in "Terrorcalypse - Part 2" essentialy forces her to be happy in and accept Friskworld.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Is the most femenine twin compared to Chara, but wears a short hairstyle and is one of Chara's greatest companions on the supernatural adventures.
  • Girly Bruiser: Downplayed. Frisk is more ladylike if compared to Chara, but mostly a Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak, and is a Badass Adorable Normal that has to be pushed first.
  • Homemade Sweater from Hell: Averted with her self-crafted jumpers with bowtie's.
  • Iconic Outfit: She almost always wears one of her self-crafted bowtie jumpers.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Her basic goal during summer is to get alot of friends. Deconstructed in "Association Of the Blank Mind", that shows her failed, poor choices at "summer friendships" and the fact that the only two friends that really worked out were Connie and Amethyst, who were genuinely kind to her instead of immediately rejecting her or manipulating her.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Chara has to fight a Brainwashed and Crazy Frisk on Friskworld to convince her to go back to reality. She ultimately wins, and gives a "World of Cardboard" Speech that frees Frisk.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Like her canon self, she uses whatever is handy on the situation she's stuck in.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Unlike Mabel, Frisk mostly averts this trope in the joke department, lacking the wish to tease her older twin sister Chara. However, she has a blind selfishness problem she seems to correct up on "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical".
  • Interspecies Friendship: She and Chara love and accept alot their non-human cousin Asriel. Both also became really friendly to Gaster during the events of "Association Of the Blank Mind".
  • It's All My Fault: Near the end of "The Frisk, the Chara and the Future", she blames herself and her selfishness for her friends and family's unhapiness and the fact she and her sister will leave the summer not managing to fix everyone. While her selfishness did cause Chara to fall into Demonic Possession, Pearl and Garnet's relationship was already getting weirder before she appeared, and Lapis can't avoid high school, even if it's bad.
  • Kid Hero: The younger mixed twin sister of the protagonist, being dragged along on her sister's adventures and even seeing some scary stuff on her own.
  • Lethal Chef: She makes "Frisk Drink", a mix of grape juice, and coffe & milk. With no doubt, one of her few things of her that fits the Cloud Cuckoolander territory.
  • Martial Pacifist: She defends pacifism, but ultimately, when she is cornered or has to stop a creature from doing more damage, she already accepts she has to somehow fight.
  • Meaningful Name: Frisk in swedish means healthy, young and frisky (playful and energetic). She is the joyful heart of the duo between her and her older twin.
  • Mismatched Eyes: When her normally closed eyes are open, it reveals two pupils, albeit they have two halves of colors; blue and a nut-brown close color.
  • Mind-Control Eyes: In "Terrorcalypse - Part 2", Frisk's eyes are blood red instead of half nut brown and half blue, to show the Zodiac Demons brainwashed and forced her to love Friskworld. When she completely breaks free, her eyes are back to normal.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Her reactions about the consequences of her more misunderstood actions are very close to this trope, but her reaction to Aqua and Scott leaving Lapis' teen group because of Jasper and Taylor dating takes the cake.
  • Outdoorsy Gal: Alot more happy in a outside world than her older twin sister.
  • Parasol Parachute: The umbrella she got as a gift from Pearl in "Trapped Under Crystals" ends up gaining this function in "Peridot's Ascension".
  • The Pollyanna: She wishes almost-worldwide peace.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: She and Chara even opposes themselves in skin and hair colors, despite sharing a female gender.
  • The Power of Trust: Her everlasting trust on Pearl is able to free the author of the books from the portal.
    Grauntie Pearl...I believe on you.
  • Sadistic Choice: Offered to her in "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical" and on "She Lied All Along".
    • In "Friendship Ever After: A Doll Musical", Zalgo indirectly threatens to kill her if she doesn't handle the book. When mocked by her choice, however, she gains a Heroic Second Wind.
    • In "She Lied All Along", she either has to trust her sister Chara and shut down the portal, a potential world-destroying machine, or listen to Pearl and keep it on, since someone she needs is trapped inside. It turns out Pearl was right; her sister, who's the author, was indeed inside the portal.
  • Shrinking Violet: Downplayed. She is shy around new people and playful (in a careful way) around her family/friends, and some things deeply upsets her while other's doesn't.
  • Sibling Team: Forms one with her older twin sister Chara.
  • Town Girls: The Femme to Amethyst's Butch and Connie's Neither.
  • Twirl of Love: A sisterly love version she and Chara share on "Terrorcalypse - Part 2" that ultimately frees Frisk from Friskworld's charm.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: She has alot of bowtie jumpers she keeps switching, and apparently, two sleeping outfits.
  • Weakened by the Light: Her eyes, since she has photophobia as revealed in "Stories Under Earth", which is why her eyes are always squinted. In fact, inside the Bottomless Hole, a place without any source of light, she can keep her eyes perpetually open without any problem.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: The narration in "Hallowater" remarks that both she and Chara managed to understand some darker concepts even before coming to Inside Falls.
  • Worthy Opponent: Considers her rival Etoile one.
    "Grauntie" Pearl Crystal Dreemurr 
Pearl Crystal/Scarlet Dreemurr is Chara and Frisk's lovable and motherly con-woman (and ocassionaly ballet dancer) great aunt. She runs the Crystal Shack, a tourist trap full of false attractions. At first, it looks like she is just unaware of the town's weirdness as much as everyone else, but sometime later, her nieces learn she is much more capable than she seems.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Zig-zagged. From one side, she didn't have to fight in a thousand-year war, deal with losing her master and etc. But from other side, she is inserted into a slightly modified Stanley Pines backstory, which also wasn't much happier after teenagehood.
  • Adults Are Useless: She may be a sickeningly lovable surrogate mother to her twins, but seems oblivious to what is happening around the town. Emphasis on SEEMS after "Jurassic Temmie" and "Monster-Vocals".
  • Affectionate Nickname: She sometimes calls her nieces "cutiepies". Her nieces call her Grauntie (a mixture of great and auntie) Pearl.
  • Age Lift: Inverted, sort of. She is changed from a thousand-years old alien to a human in her 50/60's. She is still the oldest of the group (second oldest after the debut of Garnet), but not as old as her canon self.
  • Agent Scully: Apparently is one. Subverted from "Jurassic Temmie" onwards.
  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: Pearl, who is kind but not really extroverted outside of her show persona and a bit of a Deadpan Snarker with a Heart of Gold for whole the town in general, decides to take her kindness out in letting all the survivors live in the Crystal Shack for shelter. She also decides to take down the Zodiac Demons, whom she only really meet now and was scared of, because they harmed her family.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: Shares a bit of this dynamic with her great-nieces. She's the Brawn (although she is a Fragile Speedster with age and wisdom and resorts to Hit-and-Run Tactics, she does have more strenght than her nieces) to Chara's Brains and Frisk's Beauty.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: A pretty nice and motherly old lady in her personal life...and will make sure that people hurting/attempting to hurt her two nieces will pay hard.
  • Break Them by Talking: How Pearl ultimately defeats the Zodiac Demons, combined with Shut Up, Hannibal!. See "The Reason You Suck" Speech.
  • Broken Pedestal: Chara and Asriel lose their entire trust on her after learning about what she's hiding. Frisk, who is in complete denial about her being a bad person, is the only one willing to listen to her. Subverted during "A Fable of Two Gems", after Chara, Frisk and Asriel listen to Pearl's backstory.
  • Cool Aunt: A loving great-aunt acting like a surrogate mother for her twin nieces.
  • Cool Hat: Wears a picture hat in the beginning of "The Woman-Pearlian Candidate" to serve as her "ticket" to compete for presidence.
  • Cool Old Lady: Goes along with Cool Aunt up here.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Shows this in some occasions.
  • Drama Queen: Her "Ms. Wonder" persona for the public is this trope.
  • Everything's Sparkly with Jewelry: Her mindscape in "Nightbandits" has some shards of gems fixed on the walls.
  • Elderly Blue-Haired Lady: Artwork for the fanfic shows her with orange/peach hair alot like her canon self. However, it shows pretty big, wavy lines of gray hair in between.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She is pretty sweet to the ones she cares, loved Chara even in her pre-Character Development period and is suggested she has a soft spot for all children. But she can still valiantly fight agains't those hurting her loved ones, hates Peridot (aka the only child that for now doesn't deserve her friendship), and is a con-woman and liar, traits born during her Dark and Troubled Past.
  • Good Parents: Downplayed. She is sometimes strict and overprotective but means extremely well to her great nieces.
  • Go Through Me: In "Jurassic Temmie", once the Tyranossaurus rex corners her and Temmie.
    You want to get this cat?! Just over my DEAD BODY!
  • Happily Adopted: As revealed in "A Fable of Two Gems".
  • Iconic Outfit: A cyan bussiness outfit with a star-shaped tie, cyan pants, and pink shoes. Sometimes she also has one of her medals embeded on her heart area.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As revealed in the Grand Finale, she's one for the whole town of Inside Falls: she might exploit it with her Shack, be most of the time emotionally apathetic to the citizens and even criticize some of them, like how she did to the policemen in "She Lied All Along". But she still cares about the place like it was her second home. In fact, this love for the town is even spoken during her breaking speech agains't the Zodiac Demons.
  • Kick Chick: In "Monster-Vocals", once her wooden spear breaks, she starts delivering kicks on the gem monsters.
  • Long-Lost Relative: She has a adoptive older sister called Garnet, who's the author of the books Chara was searching for almost the entire summer.
  • Lovable Rogue: A con-woman, yet a sweet and protective mother figure.
  • Mama Bear/Never Mess with Granny
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: In-Universe, sort of: her presentations for the public as Ms. Wonder make her look like a full-blown Large Ham Drama Queen, but outside of shows, aside from a few buttons and ticks, she is a sweet old lady who loves her family.
  • Meaningful Rename: She changes her middle name "Scarlet" to "Crystal", like her older adoptive sister. She possibly didn't want to raise suspicions about her being adopted..
  • Ms. Vice Girl: Is greedy but it doesn't outweight too much the nicer facets of her personality.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "Now...lets see if you can keep up with ME, beasts!"
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Subverted. She is feminine most of the time but the first ocassion she wears a bun is when she is attacking the gem monstes that were ambushing her nieces..
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: She delivers one to the Zodiac Demons in "Terrorcalypse - Part 4: Reunion and Respite", about how they don't scare her, and the fact they hurt so many things she loves. She finishes by pratically yelling for them to just accept they are going to die.
  • The Runaway: Was revealed in "A Fable of Two Gems" to be one. She still regrets this decision today.
  • Silver Vixen: She has Canon!Stan's age (between 50's and 60's), but is still as beautiful as her canon self.
  • Stepford Smiler: Type A, as some hints are suggesting. Completely confirmed in "A Fable of Two Gems".
  • Team Mom: Like her canon self, she fills the more motherly role of the team.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The Performer to Garnet's Technician. She has a Large Ham public persona, and choose to study arts.
  • Tomboy And Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to her adoptive sister's Garnet Tomboy.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Downplayed with Garnet, her older adoptive sister. They don't hate each other; they just became distant because Pearl believes that she will never be close to Garnet as they used to be when they were children and late teens.
    Asriel Dreemurr 
Chara and Frisk's cheerful cousin, and Pearl's young and inhuman handyman. Sometimes, his heart is easily broken, but he keeps a pretty happy attitude for a good while, alongside giving company to his "best friend-cousins" on some of the adventures.
  • Action Survivor: Survives during the time skip of "Terrorcalypse - Part 1", helping strangers on his way.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Inverted. Since he didn't have to go trough the traumatic things his canon self went trough, specially being reincarnated as a murderous flower, he seems to be more relaxed, silly and carefree than his canon self. Slightly Double Subverted when it's revealed he had to cope with his parents being out of town to work for six years.
  • Adorkable
  • Affectionate Nickname: Chara sometimes calls him "Azzy".
  • Ambiguously Absent Parent: His canon parents (Toriel and Asgore) for now are not present, and don't live with him neither (he lives with his caretaker Alphys). Subverted when "Eros' Revenge" introduces them and explains why they're absent. And it's not the most happy answer.
  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: Asriel, a pretty nice but also dorky, awkward and shy kid, becomes a minor hero by helping people he never meet before.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Badass Driver: Proofs to be this in "Peridot's Ascension".
  • Benevolent Monsters: A goat monster, yet one of the sweetest members of the main cast alongside Frisk.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal
  • Birthday Hater: "Eros' Revenge" reveals that he feels fear when reminded of his birthday, and personally thinks it's a day of horrible luck for him, because in his seven years birthday, his parents had to go work for years on a place far from his home, leaving their friend Alphys as a caretaker for him and giving him a job at the Crystal Shack to make him be able to pass time. This changes when his mother finally calls him after four years to warn him she and his father would come back near the end of summer.
  • Break the Cutie: "His Best Date" becomes a big one for him. As he plays Doki Doki Literature Club! trough its full Act 1 and learns about its true nature, he misses work for the first time of his life and his cousins find him on his bed, in a Troubled Fetal Position. He decides to play further just to remove the curiosity of his mind, and when he reaches the point he discovers Monika is the one responsible for all the chaos, he calls her a monster three times, and it ends resulting in him becoming Brainwashed and Crazy and needing the help of his cousins and his soon-to-be-girlfriend Amy to snap off.
    • His reaction to his mother telling him she and his father had to go to work out of town and it could potentially take years until they come back can fit as this.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: Sort of Justified. His monster appearence makes people run away, much to his sadness.
  • The Conscience: In "The Tale of Destiny" and "hOi! tIeM tRaVel!", for Chara and Frisk.
  • Country Cousin: After "Haunted Tales (for Curious Tourists)", he starts quotting a good deal of Southern phrases. Before, it was more of a Downplayed Trope, since he only quotted "Howdy" and "Golly".
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: This apparently silly but kind goat boy saves Chara, Frisk, Connie and Amethyst from Sugar Sucre, helps his twin cousins combat The Zodiac Demons and almost destroys the CD of Doki Doki Literature Club. The final case just didn't happen because his target, Monika, had a Heel Realization.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Asriel's eyes frequently show stars. Fitting for his Cheerful Child personality.
  • Fantastic Racism: Asriel seems to suffer from this (as suggested in "~Amuse-Bouche~" and "His Best Date"), born from the fact that he is one of the few monster races that are walking among the humans of Inside Falls and mostly acting as equally as them. Etoile straight out calls him a "white and misfit furball", and Jasper gets a particularly jerkish moment at Asriel's expense in "Eros' Revenge".
  • Four-Fingered Hands: He has paw-like hands with three fingers (two of them working as digits).
  • Free-Range Children: Even if he's not human, he is still a 13-years old preteen that ends up driving a bus in "Peridot's Ascension". Lampshaded by himself:
    Don't worry, I'll save you girls doing probably the most stupid thing that I ever did in my life and in the innapropriate age!
  • Furry Reminder: In "Stories Under Earth", his scream as he, Chara, Frisk and Pearl fall down the Bottomless Hole, is pointed out by the narration to sound like a goat.
  • Genius Ditz: He does have his intelligent wits, but they don't appear frequently.
  • The Good Guys Always Win: Conversed in a optimist way by him in "Nightbandits".
    But at least, good will always prevail the evil no matter the hardships they face!
  • Handyman: His job, just to not say too much about a good part of his personality.
  • Interspecies Adoption: He is part of the adopted half of the Dreemurr family.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With his cousins Chara and Frisk, who both accept and love him alot despite his monster origin. Lapis and Pearl are also tolerant of him.
  • Interspecies Romance: He is dating Amy Roselyn, a human, since the plot of "His Best Date".
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The Feminine Boy to his co-worker Lapis's Masculine Girl. Even though both Asriel and Lapis are not lazy in a fight, Asriel loves golden flowers and baking pies and would barely disobey a request/order from Pearl, while Lapis is explictly rebellious and The Slacker, and prefers fighting like a boxer.
  • Nice Guy: One of the most lovable..."people" anyone in Inside Falls can meet.
  • Plucky Girl: Male example. He holds a great deal of optimism like his cousin Frisk.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: In "His Best Date", he decides to stop reasoning with Monika and put a end to the CD of her game, only stopping when realizing she actually does have regrets.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: In "Nightbandits", he summons a shield shaped like the rainbow star on his jumper, with a golden border.
  • Rousing Speech: He gives ones to the Henchdemons in "Terrorcalypse - Part 3" in a attempt to get them to give Garnet back peacefully. The attempt fails, but it might have given courage for the survivors to fight back.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Inverted. He's the only boy of the Crystal Shack gang.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Terrorcalypse", he survives the three days time skip and, unlike Chara, is not scarred about the apocalypse he is forced to live through. And he helped alot of people before finding Chara and Lapis again.
  • Token Nonhuman: He remains a goat monster just like his canon self.
  • True Companions: He consider his cousins Chara and Frisk this. He even calls them his "best cousin-friends".
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: He is very loved by his parents, but they missed almost entirely his 7th birthday and, to pour salt on the wound, had to work on a place far from home.
    Lapis Lazuli 
Chara and Frisk's surrogate Cool Big Sis and the cashier from the Crystal Shack. She seems to slack mostly often without Pearl's eyes watching on her, and Chara clearly looks upon her like an actual older sister.
Steven Universe!Lapis: I'm Lapis Lazuli, and you can't keep me trapped here anymore!
Inside Falls!Lapis: I am a LAZULI, and you WON'T KEEP US TRAPPED ANYMORE!
    [SPOILER] The Author 
Garnet Crystal Dreemurr is Pearl's older adoptive sister, that was trapped in the other side of a portal she built and was the motivation for Pearl to activate it for thirty years. She's currently working on the damages the portal might've caused.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: With Pearl; in Steven Universe, Garnet and Pearl are teammates, friends and war veterans. In Inside Falls, they're adoptive sisters whose relationship cracked through the years, but not in a full hate level like the Stan twins.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: She downplays even more the stoic personality she has since her debut, making her look alot more like the Garnet that appears through Steven Universe's Season 2 ownward than the Garnet of Season 1.
  • After Action Patchup: Garnet gets her bloody wounds patched by a panicked Pearl after getting out of the portal.
  • Age Lift: Inverted; changed from a thousand years old alien to a human woman around her 50-60 years, like her adoptive sister.
  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: Garnet decides, along with her sister, to finally fix up their relationship and forgive each other.
  • Badass in Distress: Downplayed a little in "Sailor Solar System Planets and Satellites". She takes a while to get caught by Queen Peggy's guards.
    • Played straight in "Terrorcalypse", where she is transformed into a statue half-ruby and half-sapphire by the Zodiac Demons and, in the third party, it's the survivor's goal to get her back so they can learn the weakness of the Demons.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Heavily implied to be rescued from one in the ending of "She Lied All Along", since she had fresh, big wounds on her body. The fact that they're described as "claw marks, knife marks and small burns" gives up a big clue on the "people" that did it to her...
    • Actually makes part of one on-screen, in the recieving half, agains't the Zodiac Demons.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Garnet's coat is a dark shade of gray, even after changing clothes from the portal, but yet, she seems to fit the Big Good role, and actively struggles agains't the Zodiac Demons.
  • Genius Bruiser: Is the strongest if compared to Pearl, but she focused her dreams on science (meanwhile, Pearl focused hers on arts), researched Inside Falls' anomalies, and built a portal intended for multiversal dimension exploring. Ben even calls her "brain-fist" girl, and after a younger Garnet demanded to know the true portal's nature, Jeff mocks her with the same nickname, claiming she finally decided to work on the "brain" part.
  • Lonely at the Top: Unlike Stanford, Garnet had a chance of going to the school of her dreams...but Pearl ran away from home right before it could happen. So, she feels very lonely, but decides to keep the problem to herself.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: She survived many dimensions behind the portal, and got out to tell story (albeit with bloody wounds).
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Her trunk, legs and arms are full of bloody wounds that the narration considers large, but Garnet is pretty much fine after Pearl wraps the wounds with bandages. Although she could've been properly healed after dealing with the agents.
  • Protective Charm: She has a pair of little red and blue gemstones on each of her palms that she claims to be a ward agains't evil. In "Frisk and The Secret World", the gemstones are a bit more fleshed out, being revealed that they ward off the Zodiac Demons (or protects her from sealing a deal with them).
  • Technician vs. Performer: The Technician to Pearl's Performer. She is The Stoic, and choose to study sciences and engineering.
  • The Stoic: Like her canon counterpart, she still doesn't express emotions too much. However, it's more Downplayed.
  • Tomboy And Girly Girl: The Tomboy to her adoptive sister's Pearl Girly Girl.

Extra Members

Frisk's pet, whom she won at the Crystal Fair. She is a cat and dog hybrid that can speak, but not on a correct english.
A swan of unknown gender (possibly female as revealed in "Sailor Solar System Planets and Satellites") that frequently hangs around the Crystal Shack.
  • Ambiguous Gender: For now, their gender are unknown. Subverted when Chara calls her Charlotte, a female name.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: She eats the drive from the agents with the Dreemurr family's case.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She doesn't have the diet of a normal swan. For example, she ate one of Pearl's medals off-screen, and almost ate the dice of Sailor Solar System Planets and Satellites. Exploited when Garnet feeds her the government agent's drive containing the Dreemurr case.
  • Funny Background Event
  • No Name Given: Don't have a definitive name initially. Later it's revealed through Given Name Reveal as Charlotte.
