"No. I choose King."

The main character, a sorority sister with self-esteem issues who is abruptly transported to Throne when a strange object is shoved into her forehead. She is largely ignorant of the world around her and lacks the skills to survive on her own, but comes to face the fact that the universe is far bigger and stranger than she had ever imagined.

  • Ambiguously Gay: While in the MSPA forum version, she was very much in comedic denial, in the comic, her orientation is presented more seriously and unclear, likely because Allison herself is unsure. While the comic opens with her boyfriend Zaid pressuring her to have sex, and she's nominally trying to rescue him, everyone around her (including Allison herself) has openly admitted Zaid is a creep and Allison seems to have been attracted to him mostly so she could lose her virginity note . After a lot of romantic tension, she ends up kissing Cio during Seeker of Thrones, but was confused and disoriented before passing out. When she woke up, she tried to dismiss it briefly before acknowledging that part of the reason she was acting that way was because she barely knows Cio, and asking her on a date. After the Time Skip she has completely shed the Ambiguous part.
  • Battle Aura: In King of Swords, as she's trained more, she displays it sometimes, with wisps of flame trailing up her body, her scars gleaming like stars, and her hair trailing off into lightning.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Subverted. The horrific wounds Allison suffers from Mottom seem to fully heal in book 3 after she unlocks the power of her key, only for the various scars from them to completely return after she forces a Split-Personality Merge with her vain, sociopathic Enemy Within that was actually causing it. The scars, along with 3 new large ones from taking a devil's claw to the face, all remain permanently after that. Also discussed.
    Alison: I cried a lot, felt hideous. I still do sometimes. It hurts. Too fat, too thin, too muscular, too ugly. Yet... despite everything... maybe for the first time... it feels like me.
  • Boxing Lessons for Superman: Toyed with. In a setting where almost everyone has a least a moderate form of Charles Atlas Superpower, Allison stands out as one of the few granted extreme power without training. However, without any sort of training, her grasp of that power is nearly none. It isn't until King of Swords and having actual training that she's able to access more of that power, though she can only access it for a few seconds at a time.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Following White Chain's example, after her training.
    Allison: Empty palm crushes the deceitful!
  • Chekhov's Skill: She's a sorority sister with an inferiority complex, and thus has gotten used to drinking a lot. Not exactly the most handy background in a world where everyone seems to be a trained killer, but it does allow her to best Vladok, a black-masked devil, in a drinking competition.
  • The Chosen One: Zoss the Conquering King, former God-Emperor of reality, named her his Successor, setting in motion a prophecy that states she will rise to become creation's new ruler.
  • The Chosen Zero: Early on, she does not impress many people, especially not Cio: Allison has no knowledge of The Multiverse, no combat training, and didn't even particularly choose to begin her adventure. Most of the Big Bad Duumvirate can't even comprehend her being The Chosen One, thinking instead she's at best a gofer for the actual prophesied hero. Fortunately, she starts to grow out of it, albeit only with a great deal of suffering to herself and those around her.
  • Combo Platter Powers: As of yet, her mastery of the Key of Kings is limited, so whenever she does manage to use some aspect of it's power they don't seem to connect to each other, giving them this impression.
    • Healing Factor: One of the more basic abilities she has, though it's only manifested as modestly quick healing than some of the more exaggerated versions of the trope; while it's amplified after her Deal with the Devil with Incubus this turns out to be temporary and she regains the wounds she had previously.
    • Nigh Invulnerable: After the timeskip following Seeker of Thrones she's gained this, which helps with her still rocky fighting skills. A blow meant to slit her throat only causes pain without leaving a wound, and a dagger meant to stab her eye shatters on contact, unable to even make a scratch.
    • Pure Energy: One of the ways the power of the Key of Kings has manifested even with her lack of training is raw, explosive energy. She gained more mastery of it after training with Incubus and White Chain in the White Arts, being able to form it into a lightning spear on command or channel it through her body through the Empty Palms.
    • The Power of Creation: After training with Cio, she's starting to learn this through the Red Arts, though she's not very good at it yet and she has to transmute something else first as a starter material.
  • Coming-of-Age Story: Her character arc centers on this, though she's struggled to figure out what archetype she fits.
    • In Kill Six Billion Demons (the first part), she's a Fish out of Water and Damsel in Distress who's incredibly confused about what's going on and just wants to go home. At the end though, a combination of a Dare to Be Badass from Zoss and Cio has her actively return to Throne, ostensibly to rescue Zaid.
    • In Wielder of Names, she tries Talking the Monster to Death, with her only real plan being "Talk to Mottom, the insane Demiurge, and hope something works out". When she actually gets there though, she's left stuttering and speechless, until she interrupts Mottom's extended Hannibal Lecture and makes her escape. This doesn't solve any problems either, as Mottom returns on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge in the next book.
    • In Seeker of Thrones she explicitly tries to reinvent herself with a Significant Haircut, and makes a deal with Incubus to unlock her potential in the vein of a dark Anti-Hero, but this dramatic shift leads to her personality shattering, and a greedy Sociopathic Hero aspect of herself taking control while Allison is left in a Battle in the Center of the Mind, forcing her to reconcile the different aspects of herself. Once again, after the heist degrades into chaos as Mottom attacks Mammon to get to Allison and regaining control of her mind, Allison has to be carried out of Yre by Cio, with the first battle between Demiurges in eons raging in Throne.
    • In King of Swords, after the chaos of her previous attempts to confront the Seven, there is a one year Time Skip while Allison was trained in the 49 Empty Palms by 82 White Chain, a fighting style said to be impossible for humans.
  • Cool Sword: Averted after seeming to set up for it; she picked up a sword from a fallen combatant in Praman Nand's brothel to have a weapon in the chaos, but never learned how to use it and eventually it was left behind in the chaos of the heist of Yre rather unceremoniously.
  • Covered with Scars: A more mild instance than most, but getting there. As of King of Swords, she has three parallel scars across her face and numerous puncture scars across her body.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Not initially, but after being dragged around Throne with no clue as to what was going on, weeping almost continuously since she arrived, Cio decides to give Allison the kick in the ass she needed.
  • Deal with the Devil: She accepts Incubus's offer of confidence and the knowledge to use her power in return for becoming his emissary, by letting Incubus put a piece of his mind into hers. He seeks to use her as a tool to end the Enemy Mine among the other demiurges against Jagganoth and foment war. Though Allison also screams in his face she'll come and kill him too if he actually tries to exploit his end of the bargain any more than that. She still ends up regretting the deal when one of the side effects allows a Split Personality to force her into the more unsavory parts of her plan to fight the other Demiurges.
  • Drunk with Power: After making a Deal with the Devil with Incubus for power, she becomes full of herself and disrespectful of her comrades. The text below the page directly references the trope.
    Incubus: You and I are not common. Our anger is a hammer that can shatter gods.
  • The Everyman: Thrust into the strange world of the comic without so much as a warning. She's still trying to get a grip on things.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: She's introduced as one, but it's later revealed she dyed her naturally brown hair in an effort to change her image. She later goes without it, shortly followed by an Important Haircut.
  • Homage: Explicitly and repeatedly has mentioned how much of a fan of Sailor Moon she is, and her character arc is a deeper and more mature take on Usagi's own character arc.
  • Hysterical Woman: Complete with Inelegant Blubbering. It's justified in Allison's case, given her circumstances.
  • Idiot Ball: Played for laughs and drama. The author, Abbadon, mentioned that Kill Six Billion Demons is about a girl who always makes the worst possible decisions. From going back to a Wretched Hive like Throne, to making wagers with Always Chaotic Evil Ebon Devils, to walking into the stronghold of one of her archenemies, to letting another put part of his soul in her, Allison always chooses poorly. But in the process, she also inadvertently continues along the path to becoming the biggest badass in the multiverse.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Played with. In her first visit to Throne, she wants nothing more to get home. Once she does, she takes some time to compose herself and returns the next day. She claims that she still just wants to rescue Zaid and get the Key out of her forehead, but both Cio and Zoss scoff at this.
    Cio: You came back. That means you chose this. Ain't it about time to stop pretending?
  • Important Haircut: Part of her deliberate reinvention at the beginning of Seeker of Thrones was letting her hair revert to its natural brown and cutting it to a bob length. Following a time skip in King of Swords its once again long, but has been rendered white after the events of the Heist of Yre.
  • Kirk Summation: Very explicitly refuses and denies Nadia / Mottom's backstory as justifying her acts, and makes clear that while she has sympathy for her, she still thinks Mottom is a monster.
  • Living MacGuffin: She has the Key of Kings, the master key to the multiverse, embedded in her forehead; while few recognize that it is the Key of Kings, even a lesser key is enough to claim dominion over an entire universe. Quite a few people are waiting for the chance to rip it out of her and claim its power for themselves.
  • Mark of the Supernatural: As a result of her Demonic Possession by a split personality in volume Seeker of Thrones, her mousy brown hair has turned permanently white.
  • Meaningful Name: Besides the Alice Allusion, her name is potentially meaningful in-universe as sounding similar to YISUN, the creator of reality. "-UN" is a common suffix to gods as well, which appears to be why Zoss addresses her as "Alice".
  • Meaningful Rename: The Conquering King Zoss addresses her as "Kill Six Billion Demons" and "The Sovereign", and Jadis' prophecy implies the same.
  • Powers via Possession: The nature of her Deal with the Devil: she gains the confidence and knowledge to unlock the power of her Key of Kings by putting a tiny portion of one of the demiurges, Incubus, into herself. After reuniting with the Split Personalities it creates, she loses the power, with the wounds from the previous arc she fixed with a Healing Factor reappearing all over her body and her no longer using any of the skills she'd demonstrated to defend herself when attacked by a Devil.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When she is influenced by and borrows power from the decidedly malevolent Incubus, her eyes turn red.
  • Scars Are Forever: Both her scars from getting her limbs perforated by Mottom's vines and the later scar across her face from Cio seem to be permanent, not quite reaching the point of Covered with Scars but getting closer. They're still there after the Time Skip.
  • The Sociopath: Temporarily falls into this, having no qualms about sacrificing others to forward her goals, when she suffers a Split-Personality Takeover thanks to accepting Incubus's "help". Alison even outright calls this part of herself such.
  • Split Personality: One of the side effects of her Deal with the Devil causes a Sociopathic fragment of her personality to take over from and get into conflict with the more moral portions.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Between books 3 and 4. She comes back heavily muscled, well-known in certain areas of Throne as an adventurer who will help anyone in need.
  • Training from Hell: Presumed to occur during the Time Skip between Books 3 and 4, when she is trained by White Chain in Supernatural Martial Arts and Cio in Entropy and Chaos Magic.
  • Transformation of the Possessed: When sufficiently influenced by Incubus, not only do her eyes turn red, but even her lips and eventually her hair change color to match her possessor.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: The way Eris-Lo Kai describes her ability, noting that she has grown stronger, but no smarter.
  • What an Idiot!: invoked Calls herself this after making a deal with Incubus.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Multiple different times over as Throne is fundamentally a very different place from anything Allison is used to.

     82 White Chain 

82 White Chain Born in Emptiness Returns to Subdue Evil
Click here to see White Chain's form while in the Void. 

"Forgive me for this violence I am about to inflict."

A Liquid Angel who serves as a peacekeeper in the city of Throne.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Complicated by the fact that angels have No Biological Sex and a strong taboo against claiming a gender identity. White Chain claims to be "a little feminine" and denies being female, which is the subject of some speculation in Throne.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: White Chain is always pretty confident in their abilities, but when they become Allison's martial arts teacher, it comes out in full force.
    Alt Text: There's a reason most human martial artists don't train with angels, namely that it's well known that you will spend every second feeling like a complete buffoon.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: On this page White Chain is seen full frontal naked, but with no nipples or genitalia, since angels have No Biological Sex — and the author preferring to avoid NSFW content.
  • Berserk Button: Being referred to as female tends to stress White Chain's usual calm. This has yet to result in more than sharp words and curt correction, but this is still a stark contrast to the angel's usual professional, if occasionally arrogant, demeanor.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: Subverted — angels are believed to be incapable of lying, which lets White Chain get away with a fairly transparent falsehood. Lying does damage her armour, so they avoid it whenever possible.
  • Defector from Decadence: Infuriated by how the other regular angels just sit there and yap all day, disdaining the pressing problems in Throne, White Chain makes a deal with Juggernaut Star.
  • Determinator: White Chain has had their form destroyed and reincarnated 81 times, which is far and away the highest of any Angel. Other major Angel characters are typically in the single digits to low teens note . Despite that, they are one of the few angels that still persistently follows their teachings, and other Concordant Knights recognize White Chain as the one who has died most in defending Throne.
  • Exact Words: White Chain is a peacekeeper, not a lawman. Most people do not appreciate the distinction.
  • Extra Eyes: The flames White Chain emits have eyes in them, and White Chain's true form without the stone armor encasing their body has eyes coming out of their hair and on the "palms" of their wings. And all of them can cry.
  • Heroic Willpower: White Chain maintains adherence to the core values and traditions of their order, despite it being broken beyond repair and in a state of near irrelevancy, because they believe it is a righteous path.Their resolve is so strong that not even being subjected to Metatron's Brown Note, which they explicitly recognized as the voice of truth, is able to convince them to defect. Nor is the promise of power in the form of a fancy, if a bit Thornier, new body.
  • Honor Before Reason: Which gets them in trouble more than once, and gets White Chain banished from the angels as well.
  • Last of His Kind: One of the few angels who has not turned to the "Path of Thorns," which is a much more selfish path than the pious peacekeepers Angels were supposed to be. Many of the shells of adherents to White Chain's path are on display, but broken so heavily that the angels whom they belonged to could not inhabit them again.
  • Martial Pacifist: Hates committing violence, but will do so with exceptional skill and force if it's necessary to keep the peace.
  • Name That Unfolds Like Lotus Blossom: Spoken aloud once in another language, their full name translates to "82 White Chain Born in Emptiness Returns to Subdue Evil", but everyone just calls them "White Chain".
  • No Social Skills: As only a Time Abyss avatar of law can have. They interrupt a romantic moment between Allison and Cio to propose that they should get to know each other better, then begins to recount their own life story — which is older than The Multiverse. Cio cuts them off.
  • Obvious Judas: In-Universe. Has stated repeatedly that the main reason they are helping Allison is so that she can give the Key of Kings to Zaid. Allison's reaction is basically "I don't have time to argue with you, glad to have you on board."
  • Offhand Backhand: During a tournament, the comic contrasts Allison and White Chain's skill levels by depicting Allison just barely defeating her opponents while White Chain does so casually in this manner.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: A rare example that's Played for Drama. Angels are almost universally referred to as male despite technically being sexless, but White Chain is more feminine. This leads to their banishment to the Void when their mentor takes this as a sign that they've become too human.
  • Significant Wardrobe Shift: After they break away from the other angels, they start adding personal touches to their Concordant Knight armour, including modifying the helmet to reveal their true face, wearing earrings, and wearing a robe Nyave picked out for them despite having snapped at her for doing so.
  • Transgender: In a very unconventional way. Angels have No Biological Sex and call each other "brother" by default, whereas White Chain identifies as "somewhat feminine" early on, and has embraced more openly feminine expressions over time. The other angels refuse to acknowledge this, or refer to them as "defective" despite having no answer when White Chain asks why "brother" is any less inappropriate.


Ciocie Cioelle ("Cio") Estrella von Maximus the Third (formerly Yabalchoath)
Click here to see Cio's former appearance as an Ebon Devil. 

"I'll tell tha a grand secret: People don't really change. They just grow thicker layers over who they really are, and pretend."

A Blue Devil and an associate of White Chain, working as a bookkeeper for the Golden Cage Guild. Formerly an Ebon Devil by the name Yabalchoath, and the only being in history to successfully steal a Key of Kings.

  • Almighty Janitor: Besides being a fairly skilled magician working as a bookkeeper for a brothel, she's also a self-proclaimed professional fanfiction writer. And she also happens to have once stolen a Key of Kings, a feat thought unimaginable before then.
  • The Atoner: Her previous incarnation was a monster that was hated by everyone. Her current self feels she got what she deserved and does not want to ever be like that again.
  • Becoming the Mask: Literally, due to her being a devil, but Cio is capable of flipping her personality from a swearing, cigar-chomping, but ultimately well-intentioned fanfiction writer to a hellish, backstabbing monster reminiscent of her past life as a slave-owning smuggling lord with little effort, save for her morality. It takes her a while to settle on which she wants, but she ultimately decides to remain 'Cio'.
  • Being Evil Sucks: The very first realization that she came to upon her resurrection as Ciocie Cioelle was that every evil act she commited for wealth and power as an ebon devil was ultimately completely pointless, and it was inevitable that everyone would betray and try to kill her for them.
  • Bi the Way: Dated Oskar in the past, was/is married to Praman Nand, and has expressed attraction to Allison several times. Which ends up reciprocated in Seeker of Thrones.
  • Break the Haughty: She was once an ebon devil of unrivaled power and co-owned a mighty guild. Then she had the audacity to steal Mammon's key and use its power to indulge herself and create monuments to her glory. She became such an overt threat to the Red City that the angels rose up to oppose her, and her horribly abused slaves were only too happy to sell her out.
  • Brought Down to Badass: She was such a monster as an Ebon Devil that angels rose up and put her down, and when she was brought back it was as a much weaker Blue Devil. This doesn't stop her from being a terror with her word-and-paper magic.
  • Came Back Wrong: Inverted. As Ciocie Cioelle, she realizes exactly how horrible she was before she was killed, and never wants to be that monster again.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: The Heretics' Court states that Yabalchoath frequently took through treachery, and warn Allison that letting them punish her is as much for her own benefit as theirs.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Delivers this speech to Allison, mocking her inaction in order to get her to step up to the plate.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Cio is generally unimpressed with White Chain's overblown dignity and Allison's irritating ignorance.
  • The Dreaded: Back when she was known as Yabalchoath. When Princess (also a former Ebon Devil) learns who Cio used to be, Princess looks petrified.
  • Dynamic Entry:
    • Riding White Chain's empty armor-body into a crowd of demons to rescue Allison.
    • One-ups herself by commandeering an airship to gatecrash Mottom's palace, then cutting off Mottom's word of death by plastering her with paper soldiers.
    • A much less heroic version when she tackles Allison in a berserk rage after being left for dead under a boulder.
  • Eating Optional: as a devil, she has no need for physical sustenance, but she enjoys cooking and eating human food anyway.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: When she starts wearing her hair loose, it's a sign that she's reconnecting with her old personality as Yabalchoath.
    • Another one comes around a few days after the heist at Yre, this time gracing her with a short, pixie-ish cut.
  • Flowery Insults: She even has her own insult generator.
  • Godiva Hair: Not so much now, but as Yabalchoath, she wore absolutely nothing in the way of clothes. While her body lacked detailed 'attributes' to cover, it was nonetheless styled to drape over her breasts. It certainly wasn't intended to titillate, but added a level of eeriness to her Full-Frontal Assault strategy.
  • Her Code Name Was "Mary Sue": Her "fan fiction" describes herself as a mysterious and indescribably beautiful stranger whom Allison, the fated ultra-queen of the universe immediately falls for.
  • Holy Halo: Her previous incarnation briefly acquired one after stealing a Key of Kings.
  • I Hate Past Me: She rejects the horrible nature of her past Ebon Devil self, to the point where she implies she's capable of reclaiming its power but refuses to do so because it would make her a monster again.
  • Important Haircut: After the events in Mammon's vault, her hair's been cut short. It's even shorter than it was cut when she was first forced into Blue Devildom, implying that she's even further away from her past as Yabalchoath.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: her appearance is affected by her emotional state to a degree. At her best she very closely resembles a small, blue-skinned human, but the events during the infiltration of Yre cause her to gradually become more insect-like and grow additional horns, and eventually fully transform into a blue-masked Yabalchoath until Allison calms her down.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": It's implied her name is pronounced "See-Oh-See-Ey See-Oh-Ell-Ey". Or like one might spell out C-O-C-A C-O-L-A.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: When wearing her Coat of Arms. Also had four arms, as Yabalchoath.
  • Overly Long Name: Not as bad as the angels, but her full name is Ciocie Cioelle Estrella Von Maximus the Third. Due to how devils work, her name is also a Power Limiter: devils seek to remove names from themselves, as their strength decreases with every one they have. Cio's full name is such that she's reduced to a middling blue imp, even less imposing than a baseline human.
  • Paper Master: She can use paper soldiers in a fight, turning them into a giant spinning wheel of death that cuts up anyone who tries to cross it.
  • Protectorate: She believes Allison has a great deal of potential and her main motive for joining Allison's group is to develop that potential and use it to protect herself.
  • Prehensile Hair: Through flashbacks, Yabalcoath is introduced impaling two Mammon priests through the chest with her long hair.
  • Punny Name: See It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY" above.
    Alt Text: If you pronounce Ciocie Cioelle in a particular way, a magical name will appear.
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Wears a pair of large yellow glasses the same color as her eyes purely for fashion, since demons don't need eye correction. When she starts becoming more like her past self as Yabalchoath, she ditches them, and then takes them back when she choses to reject her previous self for good.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Taken Up to Eleven as Yabalchoath, who had so much hair it more closely resembled an Ominous Opera Cape then it did actual hair.
  • Significant Wardrobe Shift: After the deal with Himself, she caves into the fate of becoming Yabalchoath once again, lets her hair down like she used to, and begins wearing a skintight suit that resembles her carapace instead of Cio's more human clothing; when everyone agrees that they'd prefer her to be Cio instead, she goes back to human clothing.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: She is very much this to Allison, up to and including literally pushing her off a cliff for her own good.
  • Sour Supporter: She loudly announces that she cannot believe she is helping Allison, and delivers a Dare to Be Badass speech harsh enough to double as a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, but still supports her.
  • Spikes of Villainy: As Yabalchoath, her carapace-like body was covered in thorny spines. She lost them when returned to life as the more benign Cio. She starts growing them again as she retraces her steps breaking back into Mammon's Vault, reliving what she did as Yabalchoath.
  • Spy Catsuit: Dons a purple catsuit for the heist instead of her casual clothes. Not coincidentally, it resembles her appearance as Yabalchoath.
  • The Storyteller: According to word of god, this is her main role; she is writing a fanfic about the entire universe and has strong opinions about how stories should be told. "Every metadimensional theological historical dramatization romantic slash fanfiction needs a cigar chomping, kleptomaniac, compulsive liar."
  • Strange-Syntax Speaker: Speaks what appears to be a devilish version of Cockney rhyming slang, though she tones it down at times and it's strongest around other devils.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: After being buried in rubble and left to die by an Allison controlled by her sociopathic side, Cio survives by transforming into a blue-masked version of Yabalchoath becoming much taller and more physically capable. It's deconstructed when in a rage she attacks and tries to kill a now remorseful Allison. Once she thinks Allison's dead, she's driven to regretful tears and reverts back.
  • Take This Job and Shove It: Announces she's quitting her job at Praman Nand's brothel while summoning a giant wall of paper soldiers to cover her and Allison's escape.
  • That Man Is Dead: Inverted. Though she's not proud of her past as Yabalchoath, she ends up re-embracing her old identity for Allison's mission... Only to discard it again once both her and Allison see the damage it's done. This is symbolized by the large, purely aesthetic glasses she wears, and she puts them back on when she believes she's about to be executed by 000001.
  • Traumatic Haircut: Yabalchoath's rather impressive mane was cut down to nothing but a bob at some point during her defeat. While it's possible that it was cut because she weaponized it somehow, she was so hated at the time of her death that it's equally as plausible as added insult to injury.
  • Unwanted Spouse: Her husband is Praman Nand. While they were on better (and more equal) terms when Cio was still an Ebon Devil, any affection for her husband she might have once had has since evaporated. Justifiably so, it seems, since she'd been all but forced into slavery by him at the start of the story.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Formerly with Praman Nand. While it's unknown if the two ever held any deeper romantic inclinations to one another, they were at the very least once frighteningly effective partners in crime when it came to managing their smuggling ring, and Nand seemed to care for her enough to spend months painstakingly putting her shattered mask back together after her death.
  • Unreliable Narrator: One of the in-universe texts is a scholar complaining about how "embellished" Cio's account of the story is, and her descriptions of the Demiurges are incomplete at best. Word of God is that her accounts can't be relied on.
  • What Could Have Been: Word of God is that in one of the first drafts of KSBD, she was a skeleton. Not a skeleton-like devil, just a skeleton.
  • Yuri Fan: One of her suggestions when she's making a plan is that Allison should ditch her boyfriend and get a girlfriend. (She almost certainly intends herself for that role.)


Vladok (Princess Mamoru Moonshine Jagermeister Jack Jack Daniels Timothy Tim Bill Freddy Mercury Blueberry Luna, Esquire / Princess Jack Moonshine)
Click here to see Vladok's full form. 
Click here to see "Princess". 
Click here to see their Red Devil form. 

A devil whom Allison encounters shortly after her second departure from Earth. Originally encountered as Vladok, an Ebon Devil, their encounter with Allison ends with them breaking their mask and being resealed as a Blue Devil.

  • Ambiguous Gender: After the Gender Bender resulting from her depowerment and renaming, followed by their evolution to Princess Jack Moonshine; it doesn't help that as Princess Jack Moonshine, she has an androgynous body coupled with a Gender-Blender Name. Of course, Devils don't necessarily have gender in the same way that humans do, and the author has even replied to questions about Princess' gender dismissing it as unimportant.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: As Princess Jack Moonshine, she becomes both much bigger, much bruise-ier, and much more upbeat, turning her into this.
  • Brought Down to Normal: After breaking his delimiter and transforming into a true being of Chaos, Allison smacks him in the face with a binding mask and shouts new names into his soul until he's a blue devil just like Ciocie.
  • Clothing Damage: Shreds most of her clothes in the transformation from a blue devil to red devil but she still has enough left to obscure any potential naughty bits.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Sort of. While she's hardly friendly, she joins Allison's retinue as a supporter of sorts after being beaten and diminished to a blue devil.
  • The Dreaded: Solely on account of being an Ebon Devil, the rarest and most powerful of their kind.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: As Princess Jack Moonshine, she has eyes on her shoulders and all down her abs.
  • Gender Bender: Possibly as an effect of Allison starting their binding name with "Princess", Vladok goes from a male Ebon Devil to a female blue imp.
  • Heroic Build: The red devil Princess Jack Moonshine rivals White Chain in height and boasts a rather impressive musculature as seen above.
  • Hidden Depths: The author has implied that Vladok was very atypical and weak for an Ebon Devil, to the point of actually being able to lose an honest bet to a human. Ebon Devils shown later are far more powerful.
  • Improbable Weapon User: As a blue devil she uses her oversized Distinguished Gentleman's Pipe/Classy Cane as a bludgeon when fighting against a Chest Monster. As a red devil she manages to shove the mouthpiece through a Mammon priest's head.
  • Lean and Mean: As the ebon devil Vladok, he stood several times Allison's height and looked emaciated.
  • Meaningful Rename: The length of a Devil's name dictates their power, so when Vladok became "Princess Mamoru Moonshine Jagermeister Jack Jack Daniels Timothy Tim Bill Freddy Mercury Blueberry Luna, Esquire", she lost a lot of her power. When she became a Red Devil again, her name shortened to "Princess Jack Moonshine".
  • One-Winged Angel:
    • Rather than accept defeat, he breaks his pact with Allison: doing so reverts him to an unbound devil, a bestial thing with a mouth with multiple rows of teeth, covered in eyes.
    • When faced with the prospect of defeat again, this time as a lowly Blue Devil, she again refuses, and morphs on the spot into a Red Devil, to regain some of their lost power and keep fighting.
  • Overly Long Name: Once Allison is through with him.
  • Phantom Thief: She somehow managed to steal Cio's book and give it to Allison unnoticed, despite the fact that all three were together during the whole time she could have stolen it.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: When he first appears, he seems short and unimpressive. Subverted in that he's actually hiding long, long limbs in his hair and beard, standing several times taller than Allison. Played straight after becoming a mere imp, claiming that even with her punier new form, she can still fight.
  • Prefers Raw Meat: As Princess Jack Moonshine, her breakfast consists of about 2 lbs of raw ox meat.
  • Rage Quit: As Vladok, he is so incensed by the thought of serving a human that he would rather effectively die than admit defeat and provide Allison a simple teleport, as was their deal.
  • Taking You with Me: Vladok would have made any hollow promise for a key to the universe. When he loses the drinking duel and the binding contract states that he has to escort a suicidal ditz to the throne room of an insane decadent goddess who can literally speak people's flesh into plants, he decides to break his mind and unleash his inner Eldritch Abomination instead.
  • This Cannot Be!:
    • As part of his Villainous Breakdown here.
    • And again here, at the thought of being struck down as a lowly blue devil. This time, however, it works out a lot better, since she immediately transforms into a Red Devil, increasing their odds considerably.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When he loses to Allison in a drinking contest, he becomes enraged, declaring that she must have cheated. She didn't. Faced with the prospect of keeping his bargain, he goes berserk and tries to drag everyone into the Void with him instead.
  • Wild Hair: They've got crazy amounts of hair, enough so that Vladok was able to conceal himself almost entirely within it, Princess was almost 50% hair by volume (when not tying it up to keep it out of the way), and their Red Devil form is mostly hair as well.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: This is her fighting style as Princess Jack Moonshine, as seen here. (Note the Alt Text joking about it.)


Nyave Anyadis of Mykos

A young woman from Mykos, a world within the goddess-queen Mottom's dominions. Allison saves her from being brought to Mottom by taking her place in order to infiltrate Mottom's flying city; Nyave later joins Allison's group as the pilot of their airship.

  • Badass Normal: While she has no special powers or combat training to speak of, her feats include body-blocking an enraged White Chain to keep her from murdering someone and hitting Oscar, a powerful Red Devil who'd just gunned down most of the heist crew, with a two-footed flying kick.
  • Hidden Depths: She was extensively trained in numerous areas of knowledge in order to serve as an offering to Mottom.
  • The Heart: She serves this role for White Chain in particular, helping her remember her connection to humanity and her responsibilities as an angel.
  • I Owe You My Life: She would have been sacrificed if she'd been brought to Mottom, and supports Allison as thanks for being saved from that.
  • The Team Normal: In Allison's group, she's the one who has to rely on her wits and education alone.
  • Wrench Wench: She's actually very good at managing and maintaining airship engines, among other things.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Even though Allison saves her life, she still can't return home after being sent as an offering to Mottom; this weighs into her decision to stick with Allison.


How well does it match the trope?
