Isabeau "Bo" Dennis
Portrayed by: Anna Silk

Bo is a bisexual Succubus raised by human parents who adopted her as an infant. During her first sexual experience, she involuntarily killed her high-school boyfriend by draining him of his chi. Not knowing what she had done and why it had happened, she ran away from home. For ten years, before she was discovered by the Fae, she lived a life without friends or family, moving from place to place and changing identities each time she killed again. It was not until she was helped by the Light Fae's human physician and scientist that she finally learned what she was and how to control her chi-draining powers.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Bo's street wear almost always shows a lot of cleavage. When she's dressed up, she shows even more (it is toned down in later seasons, where her cleavage usually stays just short of absolute). For example, in the pilot episode, where she's bar-tending at a nightclub, she wears a black shirt unbuttoned almost to her navel, with a black plunge bra underneath.
  • Action Girl: Bo's adventures often lead to fights, usually with Fae opponents. In the beginning episodes, she doesn't quite know what she's up against and often ends up in tricky situations. Fortunately, she has her friends to help her.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Not entirely aloof; just compared with Kenzi and Lauren. And Dyson's definitely more aloof than Bo.
  • Amateur Sleuth: Bo's not as great a detective as Dyson and Hale, but she still moonlights as one to help people.
  • The Atoner: Bo feels extreme guilt for her murder spree in the past, and making up for it is likely her motivation for becoming a detective. "Raging Fae" showcases it very well.
  • Aura Vision: She can see sexual auras, even when she can't see the person that they're coming from. The viewers have not been shown what this looks like on-screen.
  • Badass Bisexual: Bo's bi and very badass.
  • Badass Longcoat: She sometimes wears a longcoat when kicking ass in a fight.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Bo has a Kiss of Death, but is still one of the most moral characters on the show.
  • Bi the Way: To Bo, people of both sexes are equally good sources of sexual energy. She also has no gender preference when forming romantic relationships, and has both male and female love interests during the series.
  • Blood Magic: Inherited some from Trick, her maternal grandfather, in the form of blood to blood contact enthralling others to her will.
  • Cartwright Curse: Bo's power is to suck the life out of her partners. The trope is subverted pretty quickly, since she learns to control this power so both Lauren and Dyson survive, and Ryan leaves under okay circumstances.
  • Charm Person: One of the perks of being a succubus.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Bo has an almost pathological need to help people, and goes to great lengths to protect her clients and friends from danger.
  • Combat Stilettos: Bo almost always wears heeled boots, so she ends up kicking plenty of ass in them on a regular basis.
  • Divine Parentage: As divine as Fae can be anyway. Her father is Hades and she was born in Tartarus.
  • Drunk with Power: Yeah...happens to her a good bit in Season 2 and 3...
  • 11th-Hour Superpower:
    • When Lauren is threatened by the Lich and his minions, combined with a side order of The Power of Love. Bo doesn't remember what she did or how she did it, but there were elements of God Save Us from the Queen! at that point. Happens again later after her Dawning, after she passes it at the cost of Dyson's life.
    • "Dark Horse" reveals that she inherited this from her father; namely, the ability to use her power on multiple victims at once.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Passing the Fae initiation in the pilot episode due to Kenzi's interference helps her realize which side really cares for her:
    The Ash: This one has passed the test. It has been witnessed. Child, you may name your side.
    Bo: Neither! I choose humans!
  • Even the Girls Want Her: When she turns on her succubus powers, everybody, male or female, wants her. Even without those powers, several straight female characters like Kenzi have remarked on Bo's attractiveness.
  • Friends with Benefits: How she sees her relationship with Tamsin once they start to work and sleep with each other in Season 5. Unfortunately, Tamsin sees it differently.
  • Going Commando: Bo tells Tamsin that she doesn't even own any panties. In many other episodes, she is shown wearing panties, though, so either Bo was teasing Tamsin or the writers aren't quite consistent.
  • Hellbent For Leather: Her streetwear almost always contains a fair amount of leather, usually in her trousers, jacket or top.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Kenzi, whom she calls her sister (even though Bo isn't heterosexual, Kenzi makes it very clear that she is).
  • Horny Devil: Bo is arguably a deconstruction of this trope, since she tries to stay in one (emotionally) monogamous relationship, even though she has to have sex to stay alive and Lauren can't give her enough.
  • Hybrid Power: As the series goes on it becomes apparent that Bo has more than succubus ancestry, giving her a nuanced variation of succubus powers that sets her apart from the rest.
  • Knife Nut: They're her go-to weapon, after her succubus powers.
  • Lingerie Scene: Bo gets one in most episodes, often as a prelude to sex scenes.
  • Love Triangle: With Lauren and Dyson. It becomes something of an (unrequited) love rectangle once Tamsin starts to fall for her as well in Season 5.
  • Love You and Everybody: Bo pulls this on Lauren in the second season finale, despite the fact that only she and Lauren are present:
    Bo: I love you...all, so much.
  • Meaningful Name: Bo sounds like Beau, which means "beauty." It may also be intended to be a backhanded reference to Little Bo Peep, only in this case Bo has lost her family and not her sheep. Incidentally, her birth name is Isabeau, after her grandmother, Trick's wife.
  • Mind Control: An offshoot of her succubus powers. It's less outright control than influence, however.
  • Mommy Issues: With both her adoptive mom and her biological mom.
    Bo: Twice the mommies, twice the baggage.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Stripperific clothing, lingerie scenes, nude scenes, sex scenes—you name it. Justified because she is a succubus who feeds off sexual energy.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Verbatim in Faes Wide Shut after her dark side takes over when Lauren and Kenzi are threatened by Roman's henchmen.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: When Bo is feeding or when she revs up her succubus powers her irises turn a lovely shade of electric blue.
  • Occult Detective: Bo's neutral status (neither Light nor Dark) is handy when investigating various mysteries involving Fae. Bo and Kenzi find that they can make a living doing this.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Bo's biological (Fae) parents abandoned her, for reasons unknown. She then had to leave home as a teen after her powers awakened.
  • Parental Abandonment: One of the main plot arcs of the entire series is her figuring out her parentage. She finds her mother near the end of season 1; her father has yet to be revealed as of season 4. Season 5 finally tells us that her father is none other than Hades, Lord of Tartarus himself.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Bo is described by many characters as incredibly beautiful looking.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With both Dyson and Lauren. And as of season 4, with Rainer.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Displays one under extreme emotional duress such as when Lauren is threatened. She doesn't remember how or what she did afterwards though. As she advances in the use of her it becomes more relevant to the arc of later seasons and is connected to her paternal heritage.
  • Surprise Incest: In Season 1, she gets frenched by Saskia, who turns out to be her birth mother Aife.
    • And in Season 5, she has sex with Persephone, who turns out to be her stepmother.
      Bo: I can't believe that we're… and we really just…
  • Take a Third Option: How she deals with being given a Sadistic Choice.
  • Technical Pacifist:
    • She normally follows a no-kill policy as much as possible. That said, if a bad guy is really evil, she has no qualms about, say… leaving him to his victims. She has done this thrice, and has no guilt over it whatsoever. (Once, she even did it instead of imprisonment.)
    • And she poisoned the Garuda to death.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the beginning she often loses fights against other Fae, to a large extent because she doesn't quite know what she's up against. She trains to become a better fighter and studies the lore of the Fae to be better prepared.
  • Tyke Bomb: She was conceived by her father to be his champion.
  • The Unfettered: At least that's how the other Fae see her. Bo is actually a subversion as she refuses to take a side precisely because of her moral code.
  • Vapor Wear: Bo often inverts this trope by wearing skimpy or see-through clothing to show off her underwear, rather than her lack of underwear. She sometimes plays it straight as well, with backless tops and/or Absolute Cleavage.
  • The Watson: Bo doesn't have a clue about the Fae or how Fae society works, and frequently needs things explained to her.


Mackenzie "Kenzi" Malikov
Portrayed by: Ksenia Solo

Kenzi is a human and Bo's best friend and sidekick. She is extremely protective of Bo and does not take kindly to anyone she considers as not having her BFF's best interests at heart. At times, she has been rash and does not always make the best decisions, although never intentionally. She has become very close to Trick and seeks his advice often. She and Hale have become close, not only because both know what it's like to be the "sidekick," but also from an underlying attraction towards each other. Her relationships with Dyson and Lauren are friendly but more guarded, due to the fact that both have at one time or another hurt Bo because of the romantic feelings she has for both of them.

  • Abusive Parents: Kenzi's stepfather is said to have locked her in a closet for as little as laughing too loud, and generally made her childhood miserable enough that she came close on several occasions to summoning Baba Yaga to kill him.
  • Action Girl: Though not as powerful as Bo or other Fae, she is not useless in a fight.
  • Affectionate Pickpocket: She has a tendency to steal that borders on kleptomania.
  • Amateur Sleuth: She would like to make a living from solving people's problems, but Bo's willingness to help people for free often turns her into this.
  • Anime Hair: Some of the hairstyles we see are (but not limited to) a hair mohawk, two separate blonde wigs, a pink bob-cut type of wig, and her usual-and actually natural-black, straight shoulder-length style with bangs.
  • The Artful Dodger: Kenzi has a past as a criminal and has more or less lived on the street for periods of her life. She seems to have been quite happy with that existence, though she clearly prefers living with Bo.
  • Badass Boast: When the Norn claims Kenzi wouldn't dare cut down her sacred tree.
    Kenzi: Oh yes, I would, I'm human, remember? We drive SUVs, and we dump raw sewage into pretty lakes, and we will burn this planet to the ground if it means just one more cheeseburger, so since your Fae rules don't apply to me... (revs up chainsaw and slices into the Norn's tree again)
  • Badass Normal: She can really hold her own, even amongst the Fae. So far, she's taken on both Baba Yaga and the Norn, and survived to tell about it. Taken Up to Eleven when she accidentally picks up the Staff of Righteousness, which briefly takes her to almost River Tam levels of badass.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Kenzi, who absolutely refuses to have a proper job. Lauren calls her on it when she gets sick of Kenzi's taunts:
    Lauren: You just bounce through life, no job, no plan, from one beer to the next and still everyone dotes on you don't they?
  • Buried in a Pile of Corpses: It's not actually shown, but after Kenzi rescued an almost-dead Dyson from the Garuda and is asked how she managed that, she relates how she hid under one of the Ash's dead guards until the bad guys had vacated the premises. Fortunately, neither the danger she was in nor the ordeal she describes had any lasting effect on her.
  • Chainsaw Good: In Season 2, when she REALLY wants something from someone who's REALLY pissed her off.
  • Chickification: In Seasons 1 and 2, she manages to pull plenty of badass moments and keep up with the others despite being The Team Normal. Season 3 saw Kenzi becoming much whinier and needier towards the other Fae characters and bemoaning her status as a non-Fae. She still manages an impressive scene or two, but the contrast is staggering.
  • Con Man: One of her many side jobs is to pretend to be a psychic and give fake readings.
  • Dance Battler: While using the Staff of Righteousness. She also takes part in a literal dance battle at one point.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Kenzi has a sharp tongue and quick wit.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Kenzi used to be known as "Meow Meow" on the street.
  • The Fashionista: She kinda looooves nice clothes. Like, a lot.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?: In the pilot and once or twice since then. Kenzi is perfectly ok with Bo's bisexuality as long as it is directed towards others, but not her.
    Kenzi: Cool. Just so we're clear about this partnership, you be you and all, uh, but I'm only into guys.
  • Heartbroken Badass: After Hale dies, she desperately seeks out anyone who could help her avenge his death. When not even Bo agrees to help her, she forces Bo to un-claim her.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Heroic enough to get her into Valhalla.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Bo. So much so that it is her, and not Lauren or Dyson, who counts as Bo's "heart".
    Kenzi: No, Dyson; she loves you, yes; she loves Lauren. But you know that it's me. I'm her heart, you know that.
  • I Call It "Vera": She calls her katana "Geraldine".
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Her exact answer when asked how she got back what the Norn had taken from Dyson. It involved giant balls of steel and a chainsaw.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Her Weapon of Choice. Bo associates it so much with her that she goes ballistic when the sword is among several things stolen from her house shortly after Kenzi was Put on a Bus in Season 5.
  • The Lancer: Of the Five-Man Band.
  • Lingerie Scene:
    • She wears corsets as outerwear, so some episodes are almost walking lingerie scenes.
    • At home, she spends a lot of time in her pajamas (which at least technically would count as lingerie) even outside of her bedroom. This is played for cuteness rather than sexiness, but it's still a kind of Fanservice.
  • Lovable Rogue: She has had to support herself by stealing and living by her wits for a long time, and is adept at disguises and stealth. The "lovable" part is perhaps as much a survival strategy as an integral part of her personality.
  • Motor Mouth: She talks a lot, and very quickly, sometimes transitioning into Buffy Speak.
    Trick: Kenzi! Please! Slow down, take a breath and start again, with as much English as you can manage.
  • Meganekko: Defied. In Season 2, Dyson mentions that her eyes aren't very good after a Body Swap, but we never see or hear anything else about glasses or contacts—and by the face she makes when he says it, we can assume we won't. It's possible that this is a result of him having superior senses as a Fae (or wolf) so he feels normal human eyesight is weak.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Unlike Bo, she keeps her clothes on most of the time, but sometimes shows a lot of leg and/or cleavage. Not to mention her wearing corsets as outerwear. She is usually depicted as cute rather than seductive. Maybe, fanservice on a more aesthetic but less sexual way?
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Bo.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She traded the Twig of Zamora to Massimo for more fake-Fae cream. This allows Massimo to survive being thrown into a fire pit and get his revenge by killing Hale.
  • Nice Shoes: One of the kinds of clothes she goes gaga for. Maybe someone on the writing staff has a thing for feet? Either way, Kenzi has a thing for feet, as spelled out in Season 2's "Original Skin."
  • Odd Friendship: She and Hale develop one over the course of the first season, sympathizing over playing second fiddle to fairly badass leading character types.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: Kenzi often wears them as outerwear.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Kenzi has been on the street since she was 10.
  • Perky Goth: Her clothing style leans towards the gothic, with corsets and lace, usually in black, but her general disposition is lively and optimistic.
  • Put on a Bus: Bo's efforts to break Kenzi out of Valhalla kick-start Season 5. Once she's done so, Kenzi leaves for an island off the Spanish coast in the same episode and doesn't show up again in the entire season save for a short appearance in the finale. Her sudden absence was owed to Ksenia Solo being busy with other projects.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She often affects this look as part of her gothic style, but she varies her raven hair with wigs in bright colours, or platinum-blonde.
  • Refusing Paradise: After her Heroic Sacrifice in the Season 4 finale, Kenzi ends up in Valhalla, the valorous warriors' afterlife. Contrary to what Bo and all her other friends believe, this is not Hell at all but the polar opposite in fact - Kenzi wants for nothing and is actually hours away from marrying Hale when Bo shows up. When faced with the choice of staying or returning with Bo, she eventually chooses the latter, although she appears to regret it to some extent afterwards.
  • Screwy Squirrel: A mild case.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: In "The Girl Who Fae'd With Fire."
  • Shipper on Deck: Bo/Dyson all the way. Vex actually calls her on her bias in Season 3.
  • Sticky Fingers: Kenzi's original "profession" is thief, and she often finds it hard to resist the urge to pick up and keep various objects that she "finds". Bo calls her on it several times.
    Bo: Oh, and Kenz? Stop stealing shit.
    Kenzi: *while zipping up a pair of stolen boots* Now that's just hurtful!
  • Street Smart / Book Dumb: As made perfectly clear in a third season episode, when she rattles off street-level criminal knowledge without batting an eyelash, but thinks Che Guevara is a t-shirt designer for angry youth.
  • Together in Death: She almost got to marry Hale in Valhalla after his untimely death prevented them from doing so in life. It's one of the reasons she isn't particularly happy with being back in the world of the living after Bo "rescued" her from what was, for all intents and purposes, paradise.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Ksenia Solo, who plays Kenzi, has very striking eyes, which are particularly noticeable due to the heavy eyeshadow she wears.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Baba Yaga?
    • And hospitals. She REALLY doesn't like hospitals.

Portrayed by: Kristen Holden-Reid

Dyson is a Light Fae Wolf-Shifter and serves secretly as Trick's lieutenant. Dyson works in the human world as a homicide police detective in the 39th Division Homicide Squad. Though at first glance he appears middle-aged, he is actually 1,500 years old. He spent centuries in Ireland serving the Laignach Faelad wolf-shifter King of Ailech with his best friend, Stefan. In terms of shifter tradition, warriors like Dyson fearlessly and unquestioningly believed in total loyalty to their King. This changed when the King betrayed his wolf pack and had his best friend, Stefan, killed to take his wife, Ciara, for himself. After this, Dyson left his pack for good, becoming, in effect, a lone wolf (this might explain why Dyson sometimes gives the impression of being "cold").

  • Armor-Piercing Question: When a Fae who can extract truth from people asks him if he loves Ciara, his reply, to his surprise, is "I can't love her!" This helps him realize that the Norn took so much more out of him than he thought.
  • The Big Guy: Despite being a detective, he often serves as alternative muscle to take down the bad guy.
  • The Casanova: Is legendary in his precinct for his ability to get testimonies out of female witnesses.
  • Cop Boyfriend: He is a cop who doubles as a boy friend for Bo.
  • Dirty Cop: Played with. While he and Hale take the "to serve and protect" part of their jobs seriously, they are primarily concerned with covering up evidence of Fae activities. In addition, it becomes clear after the first episode that his loyalties lie with Trick and not the Ash.
  • Fair Cop: Bo's attraction to him is not just explained by her succubus insticts. See also entries for The Casanova and Mr. Fanservice.
  • Fatal Flaw: His inability to TALK with people. Much of the problems, and his entire Season 2 arc, could have been helped if he just explained things.
  • Game Face: He can call upon aspects of his wolf in human form such as claws, fangs, and changes in his eyes.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: "(Dis)Members Only" makes it clear that Dyson doesn't like the idea of sharing Bo with other people, but he also makes it clear that's not his choice to make.
  • Healing Factor: He heals faster than humans.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Season 1, he was willing to give up his wolf to save Bo, but the Norn chose to take his love instead. Later, in Season 3, he volunteers to be Bo's hand in her Dawning, knowing that it would cost him his life. Thankfully, Bo's 11th-Hour Superpower kicked in, allowing her to revive him.
  • Ladykiller in Love: Until the Norn took away his love for Bo. Then got it back.
    • Even when he DOES lose his love...he still acts like this trope. With Ciara as well — despite not being able to love her.
  • Love Triangle: With Bo and Lauren.
  • Magic Pants: Averted.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Many episodes feature a Shirtless Scene displaying his toned body.
  • Natural Weapon: He calls it his "Wolf," despite the effects making it appear that he gets some form of claws and fangs whenever his eyes go gold and black.
  • Older Than They Look: Has made jokes that suggest he was whoring around with nuns during THE CRUSADES.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: He's a wolfshifter. And apparently, there's a lycanthropic language.
  • Perma-Stubble: He constantly looks like he needs shave.
  • Really Gets Around: Not anymore, but he really got around. In Season 1, Lauren makes a comment about him being "well traveled"; and in a flashback in Season 4 numerous characters describe him as being promiscuous.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Fifteen-hundred, to be exact.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Bo.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: An unusual example, as the sclera (whites of the eyes) go black, lending to a feral, dangerous appearance when Dyson lets his wolf out.
  • "Uh-Oh" Eyes: Gold and black means BACK AWAY.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Trick. Overlaps with Secret Keeper, in that he knows Trick's the Blood King.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can transform into a wolf.
  • Would Not Hit a Girl: Tamsin. Even in a boxing ring!


William Haley François "Hale" Santiago

The (Acting) Ash III
Portrayed by: K.C. Collins

Hale is a Light Fae Siren. In the first two seasons of the series, he worked out of the 39th Division of the human police force as Dyson's partner in the homicide department. He is a Baronet of noble blood of Clan Zamora. Although Hale is of a high social status from a family that has significant importance among the Light Fae, he has generally ignored his social and political connections as he prefers to explore a life of his own rather than the traditional roles expected of his family.

  • Black Best Friend: To Dyson.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Of the major characters, he is the first to die in the fourth season.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Season 3 due to K.C. Collins being busy with other projects and also Hale being busy as the currently acting Ash which fits quite nicely. He moves back into focus in season 4.
  • Dirty Cop: Played with. While he and Dyson take the "to serve and protect" part of their jobs seriously, they are primarily concerned with covering up evidence of Fae activities.
  • Drunk with Power: While he is being a total dick as the Ash, this is defied by Lauren, who claims that power doesn't corrupt people; it reveals them. He doesn't actually abuse his power, though.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: His full name and title is "Baronet William Haley Francoise Santiago of Clan Zamora."
  • Enthralling Siren: A Rare Male Example.
  • Fair Cop: Like Dyson, he is very good-looking, but less of a ladykiller.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the Season 4 episode "End of a Line."
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Or, more accurately, whistle, since he's a...
  • Mind Control: Siren.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Many episodes have featured Shirtless Scenes showing off his toned body.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Hale is extremely pissed when he finds his sister fooling around with Dyson in "The Girl Who Fae'd With Fire."
  • Nice Hat: Often sports a pork pie hat. In "Like Hell", Freya mentions he specially commissioned a white fedora for his afterlife wedding with Kenzi in Valhalla.
  • Odd Friendship: With Kenzi. Eventually gets a Relationship Upgrade in Season 4.
  • Only Sane Man: Hale is one of the most level-headed characters overall in the series and has acted as the voice of reason to most of the characters at least once by the end of the second season.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Hale is the heir to one of the three most powerful Fae noble clans but chose to become a police officer and interact with humans on a daily basis.
  • Together in Death: He almost got to marry Kenzi in Valhalla after his untimely death prevented them from doing so in life. It's one of the reasons Kenzi isn't particularly happy with being back in the world of the living after Bo "rescued" her from the afterlife.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Sadly seems to be turning out to be as much of a jerk as his predecessors in the role of Ash. He becomes nice again after he is removed from power.


Lauren Lewis / Karen Beattie
Portrayed by: Zoie Palmer

Lauren is a human scientist and physician. At the time the series begins, she had been owned by The Ash as a pledged servant, and in servitude to the Light Fae, for five years.

  • Adorkable: Often she's calm and collected, but when she's excited about something, she's really excited about it (for instance, when she wins a science award and is almost literally bouncing off the walls with glee). Bo even states that she loves it when Lauren "totally geeks out."
  • Badass Bookworm: Is able to come up with a cure for a Fae plague (which the Fae themselves couldn't do), a way to stabilize Lachlan's blood and a way to use Hale's powers to save Kenzi's life. Even the Garuda, who considers humans somewhere below dirt on the evolutionary scale, calls her smart. However, she's perfectly capable of terrifying Vex when she wants to, and has held her own with the Fae (who despise humans) for more than five years.
  • Badass Normal: As a human, Lauren does not have the magical powers of the Fae, and she doesn't normally get into physical fights, but she has her intellectual powers and tremendous willpower which makes her able to hold her own in a battle of wits with the Ash. And then Season 5 comes along...
  • The Chick/The Smart Girl: In the Five-Man Band
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She hints at one. When Kenzi talks about how she had a normal upbringing, she emotionally responds that Kenzi doesn't know anything about her.
    • In Season 3, we learn that she's a wanted criminal and her real name is Karen Beattie. Turns out she was an eco-terrorist until a bomb she made killed eleven people, though she claims that she didn't want anyone to get hurt.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In Season 4, with a combination of seduction and her smarts, Lauren manages to turn the Morrigan into a human, nullifying all of the latter's powers and authority in an instant. The ramifications continue to reverberate far into Season 5 due to how dangerous Lauren has suddenly become to even the most powerful of Fae.
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Related to the above, since she prepared for it while working for the victim, using their own resources against them. Lauren continues to do so even after the fact, though both factions are well aware of it by then.
  • Deus Angst Machina: Every season, the writers seem out to traumatize Lauren in new and fantastic ways.
  • Easily Forgiven: Averted; Bo is deeply hurt when it's revealed that Lauren was ordered to sleep with her and ignores her apologies and attempts to explain. The revelation that Trick and Dyson were also lying to her seems to be what motivates Bo into forgiving her. Kenzi is seemingly still holding a grudge in Season 2.
  • S3: Lauren lied to Bo about her health, causing Trick to put Bo in lockdown in Kenzi Scale, which infuriates Bo. Later, she never mentions Lauren lying to her, or her part in Kenzi nearly dying due to her captivity.
  • S3: Lauren breaks up with Bo, then leaves the fae, seeming to side with Taft. She used her position to betray Taft, but still leaves for parts unknown. Despite breaking Bo's heart several times, the first time they meet Bo has forgiven her completely. Lauren then rejects Bo again.
  • S4: Lauren had been lying to Bo all of Season 4 about her plans with the Dark, but after one fight and Lauren getting captured by Massimo, Bo has completely forgiven her.
  • S5: Lauren and Bo get back together again in S5, but again Lauren breaks up with her after withholding the fact Lauren was working with Bo's father on her "cure" for Evony (that she used on herself). It only takes one conversation at the end for Bo to forgive her completely.
  • S5: Bo discovers that Lauren isn't who she has claimed since they first met but when Lauren finally tells her about being "Karen Beattie" Bo doesn't seem to care.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: In her desire to become as long-lived as Bo so the two of them can have a shot at Eternal Love, Lauren tests various experimental treatments on herself. One of them turns her into what she calls a conduit and gives her the ability to copy the power of every Fae she touches or is in close proximity to, up to and including Hades'. Even Vex is seriously freaked out by this.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She is kidnapped by the Dark Fae and eventually decides to work for them instead of the Light Fae, since their cage is slightly more gilded.
  • For Science!: Lauren's reason for working with the Fae. Well, that's the reason she gives anyway. The real reason is her girlfriend Nadia was stricken ill, and then lapsed into a coma, by a disease that was supposed to only affect Fae. The Ash offered Lauren all the resources she wanted to finding a cure, in exchange for becoming a slave to the Light Fae.
  • Happiness in Slavery:
    • She is the property of the Ash, leader of the Light Fae, but is generally content with her lot in life. She finds her scientific research into Fae physiology to be intellectually rewarding, and her medical expertise, and the fact that she is owned by the Ash, gives her a fair amount of prestige and influence among the Light Fae. She is unmistakably a slave, however.
    • Deconstructed in Season 2, where her treatment under the new Ash takes a turn for the worse, and it is revealed that she actually joined the Ash to keep her girlfriend Nadia alive and to have a chance at curing Nadia's mysterious ailment, and it's later revealed that the Ash ordered her cursed to obtain Lauren as his slave in the first place. She also later admits to Bo that the five years she spent as a slave have been rather bleak for her; and considering how reserved she is, that probably means horrible.
    • In Season 3, she grows increasingly unhappy with being the property of the Ash, eventually leaving to work with a human who tries to steal Fae powers, then getting kidnapped by the Dark Fae, who she willingly decides to work for, reasoning that their cage is at least a bit more gilded than her treatment by the Light.
  • Hidden Depths: As we (and Kenzi) find out in Season 3, this Yale-educated doctor is also an Afghanistan veteran.
    • She also averted the shower scene from Psycho... with a forearm block.
    • She later reveals that she knows how to make pipe bombs.
    • Taken Up to Eleven in "Adventures in Faebysitting," where it's revealed her birth name is Karen Beattie and she's wanted internationally.
  • Hot Scientist/Hospital Hottie: Lauren is doctor/scientist for the Light Fae.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Early in Season 5, one of her hospital staffers is taken hostage and used as Human Shield by a Fae who demands a certain chemical from Lauren. She picks up a syringe filled with a powerful sedative instead and throws the thing into his carotid artery, past his hostage, across half the room, knocking him out cold before he can react. She looks appropriately pleased with herself afterwards, especially since her entire experience with throwing weapons amounts to a single afternoon training session with Dyson the day before.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: She is very feminine in her manners and appearance, but has never displayed any sexual interest in men.
  • Love Triangle: With Bo and Dyson.
  • My Greatest Failure: When she gave her brother some pipe bombs and the resulting explosion killed eleven people. She didn't want anyone to get hurt, but he may not have cared.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She is mostly at fault for causing the entire climax of Season 3. To her credit, she realizes it and both sabotages the Big Bad's plan and releases Dyson.
  • Omniglot: While she has yet to speak any of them, she is apparently fluent in Spanish, French, and Swahili.
  • Science Heroine: She serves the role as the show's scientist and defeats her enemies with something she cooked upon a lab instead of direct combat.
  • Sex Slave: Played with. No one ever uses the word "slave" to refer to Lauren, but she does refer to herself as the "property" of the Ash, and for all the influence and prestige she enjoys among the Light Fae, she is clearly a slave. This trope comes into play when the Ash orders her to seduce and sleep with Bo. Granted, she very much liked and wanted Bo, but it's still the case that she didn't have a choice in the matter. Bo still holds it against her for awhile.
  • Slave Collar: The pendant Lauren wears marks her as the Ash's property. It's just symbolic, though.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: By Season 3, most of the B-plots of a given episode have to do with her or her romantic issues with Bo. Compare to Season 1 when she only appeared to play The Smart Guy.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Bo.
  • Supreme Chef: When it comes to baking at least.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Though not a in a physical way, she is a good deal more forceful and assertive in Season 4 due to being sick of being screwed over by the Fae. Evony — the Morrigan, of all Fae — finds out the hard way just how badass Lauren's become.


Fitzpatrick "Trick" McCorrigan

The Blood King
Portrayed by: Rick Howland

Trick is an Ancient Light Fae Blood Sage and the legendary Blood King who wrote the peace truce that ended The Great War between the Light Fae and Dark Fae clans, and the Blood Laws that govern them. He is responsible for the creation of the Una Mens.

  • Almighty Janitor: In the earlier episodes Trick appears to be using his bartending as a cover for being the blood king; once he's outed to most of the Fae, he continues to run the way station because he enjoys it.
  • The Bartender: So he prefers to be.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He can be downright terrifying when angry.
  • Blessed with Suck: Anything he willingly writes in his blood comes to pass, but often in an unexpected way or with a personal cost.
  • Blood Magic: How his Fae powers work
  • Character Death: Hades kills him in "Family Portrait."
  • Cool Old Guy: One of the older characters in the show, and potentially the oldest of the main cast. Also actually Bo's grandfather, as revealed in the penultimate episode of Season 2.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: In the pilot, he advises the Ash and Morrigan to let Bo stay unaligned for as long as it useful, and then kill her. Even if he was playing them, this doesn't seem to fit with his later characterizations. It isn't even mentioned again.
  • Eccentric Mentor: To Dyson, and to some extent to Bo and Kenzi.
  • Has a Type: Trick likes the dominant, ball-buster type. They really get to him.
  • Knowledge Broker: Due both to his being the Blood King and that his bar is one of the few places open to both Light and Dark Fae.
  • King Incognito: Trick is the Blood King of the Fae.
  • Little People Are Surreal: Averted. Trick's being much smaller than the rest of the cast is unremarked upon, and when another little person figures into the plot, it turns out he's related to Trick. It seems to be just another Fae marker for that particular species.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Trick is Aoife's father and therefore Bo's grandfather.
  • My Greatest Failure: Although he enforced the peace between the Light and Dark Fae, he did so only after his wife was killed.
  • Reality Warper: As the Blood King, practically anything he writes in his blood will inevitably come to pass though sometimes in an unexpected way or with a personal price. Season 4 reveals he even wrote Reynard out of existence!
  • Retired Monster: As the Blood King, Trick was quite ruthless viewing himself as superior to other Fae and would often use his blood to try and force events to go his way or inflict terrible punishments on those who defied him. It was only after the price of his blood magic and actions cost him his family and nearly every other Fae to want him dead that he realized he went to far. Nowadays, he regrets some of his actions and views other actions as a case of I Did What I Had to Do.
  • Slashed Throat: How Hades kills him in "Family Portrait."
  • The Smart Guy: Thanks to his advanced age, connections, and large library he is usually the one people go to when they need information. He either knows something right off or can quickly learn it through reserach.
  • Stealth Mentor: In varying shades towards Hale.

Portrayed by: Paul Amos

Vex is a Dark Fae Mesmer and the hitman for The Morrígan. The Dark employ him to deal with any Dark Fae who break the clan's rules. His power has been used to convince a human police force that his victims either committed suicide or murdered each other, or to have them execute a Fae considered criminal.

  • Faux Affably Evil: As of Season 3, though, he seems to be shifting more into Affably Evil territory.
    • Officially shifts in "ConFaegion." Even if he didn't INTENTIONALLY save Kenzi's life, he actually feels bad about being evil.
  • For the Evulz: In the early seasons, Vex would often kill or torment people for laughs.
  • The Gadfly: Vex really seems to enjoy pissing other people off.
  • Guyliner: A big part of his signature look. He actually bonds with Kenzi over it and they give each other makeup tips.
  • Hidden Depths: He's very meticulous with his makeup, and genuinely laments the fate of his kind, to the point that he listens intently to one of Trick's tales about his father.
  • Humanity Is Infectious: Much to his annoyance, Kenzi seems to be having an effect on him.
  • Jerkass: Humiliates the Morrigan who is, by all accounts, shown to be a political ally, for no apparent reason other than for laughs in Season 2. It is revealed he did it partially to be thrown in prison, where an angry gang of soccer-loving Fae who he conned couldn't get to him.
  • Last of His Kind: The last Mesmer.
  • Life-or-Limb Decision: In "Let The Dark Times Roll", he cuts off his hand to prevent a poison in it from spreading to the rest of him. Lauren does stitch it back for him later on.
  • Meaningful Name: See The Gadfly above.
  • People Puppets: His power; he can control the physical movements of others using his hands.
  • Say My Name: Often on the receiving end of this for irritating the Morrigan.
  • Superpower Lottery: His power is arguably one of the most dangerous in the series. All he needs is his hands free and he can make others kill themselves. Which is why his kind have been persecuted throughout history, having their hands cut off and dying of starvation.
  • Token Evil Teammate: In the struggle against the Garuda, mostly because Bo busted him out of Dark Fae prison and he owed her.
    • This seems to be a permanent shift as of Season 3, as he becomes an unwilling house guest of Bo and Kenzi, as he can't go back to the Morrigan.
    • In "Those Who Wander," he reappears to capture the Morrigan for Hale.
  • Walk the Earth: As of "ConFaegion," in order to sort himself out.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Or would make someone else hurt a child at least.
  • Vitriolic Best Friends: He used to have this relationship with the Morrigan. Now he seems to be shifting over to Kenzi.

Portrayed by: Rachel Skarsten

Tamsin is a Valkyrie who works as a Bounty Hunter and Mercenary for the Dark Fae.

  • Affably Evil:
    • Her predominant attitude in Season 3 (except initially towards Bo, where she shows outright hostility until they become friends).
    • She becomes even more affable and barely at all evil after her rebirth in Season 4, when she's firmly an ally of Bo's and a powerful friend of Kenzi and Dyson's.
  • Bi the Way: According to Word of God. Confirmed in the show in "Fae-ge Against the Machine" when she kisses Bo and later enters into a (kind of) relationship with her.
  • Blessed with Suck: Being a Valkyrie might not be quite as awesome as it sounds.
    Tamsin: Sometimes when I like people, I have to make them go away.
  • Born-Again Immortality: Valkyries have many lives. They do, however, eventually have a last life, which is when they get their wings.
  • Bounty Hunter: As a day job, until she "pissed off the wrong people."
  • Dark Magical Girl: Starting to edge into this.
  • Death by Childbirth: In the series finale, she dies after giving birth to her and Hades' daughter, Dagny.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Lauren once she herself starts to fall for Bo in Season 5.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Shows signs of this, especially in "The Kenzi Scale".
  • Inspector Javert: She's trying to prove that Bo has been feeding on Dark Fae, a big no-no. The investigation eventually leads them to Taft, exonerating Bo in the process.
  • Kick the Dog: When she tells Lauren about the kiss she and Bo shared. Not only is she lying about the circumstances, she's clearly enjoying preying on Lauren's insecurities. In Season 5, she seems to have a lot of fun keeping Lauren up to date about how close she and Bo have become.
  • Pet the Dog: Several times in "The Kenzi Scale," even going as far as lying to the Morrigan about some very damning testimony against Bo, despite trying to prove Bo's guilt for the better part of the season.
    • More like hugging the dog to death when she catches a bullet for Bo. Afterwards, she tells Bo that this is the last nice thing she's ever going to do for her.
  • Power Degeneration: Possibly. Using her powers seems to hasten her death.
  • Pregnant Badass: In the series finale, she shows up in the nick of time to afflict Hades-controlled cops with doubt. All while heavily pregnant.
  • Secretly Dying: A result of her lifespan running out.
  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: Circumstances in Season 5 eventually make her think Bo loves her. She doesn't take the truth particularly well.
  • Shipper on Deck: Like Kenzi, she prefers Bo/Dyson. It helps that she's closer to both of them individually than to Lauren.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Dyson, given that he's Light Fae and she's Dark Fae, and also that her mission is apparently to find concrete proof that Bo has been feeding off of Dark Fae.
  • Token Evil Teammate: She is Dyson's partner, and also Dark Fae. Even after she becomes part of Bo's team and pays lip service to being dark at best, she continues to be the most morally ambiguous character aside from Vex, being very eager to rough up suspects, kick down doors and generally get stuff done the dirty way.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Turns into a much more pleasant person in Season 4 due to being raised by Bo and Kenzi, although she remains quite rough around the edges towards anyone stupid enough to oppose her.
  • "Uh-Oh" Eyes: Make her look like "Skeletor," according to Bo. They turn up whenever she uses her power, plaguing the victim with doubt.
  • UST: Between her and Dyson, although they've already kissed at least once, so it may not stay unresolved for long.
    • Also between Bo and her, though in a more Foe Yay form. Season 5 resolves the tension in a Friends with Benefits way, at least for a while.
  • Valkyries: Her Fae species.

Played By: Kyle Schmid

  • Killed Off for Real: In the Season 4 finale "Dark Horse."
  • Ret Gone: Why nobody knows anything about him. The Blood King wrote him out of existence for his defiance.
  • The Reveal: He's Rainer, the Blood King's nemesis, who got written out of existence as punishment for his rebellion.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Bo, of all people. As if her Love Triangle wasn't complicated enough, she calls him "her destiny." Not a single person in the main cast was pleased with that announcement.
  • Superpower Lottery: Almost on par with Vex. Rainer's power is foresight, making him a very formidable warrior—to the point that the Blood King had to use his own powers to trump Rainer's.
  • Third-Option Love Interest: Bo chooses him over both Lauren and Dyson, to everyone's dismay.


Main Antagonists


Saskia / Aoife
Portrayed by: Inga Cadranel

Aoife is Bo's succubus birth mother. She called herself "Saskia" in Season 1.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Like her daughter, she likes to show off her assets and often dresses like this.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Heavily implied to be one to Trick. His handing her over to be tortured and raped probably had something to do with that.
  • Ax-Crazy: She was unstable before, but being tortured by centuries left her wanting to kill anyone that does not serve her and wanting to start a war between the Light and the Dark regardless of the damage it causes.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: After centuries of torture and rape, she's gone from Light Fae to essentially acting as Dark Fae, though without loyalty to the Morrigan. It's later implied that she only aligned with the Dark out of spite for her father Trick.
  • Berserk Button: The amulet that negates chi-draining seems to be this for her: she flies into a rage and tries to kill Bo when she discovers Bo wore one when she confronted her.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 1.
  • The Bus Came Back: In "Hail, Hale."
  • Dying as Yourself: The Blood King's power breaks through her insanity. Except she didn't actually die.
  • Evil Matriarch: Bo's mother.
  • Evil Mentor: For Bo, as a succubus. Doesn't appreciate that Bo isn't living the life of Riley.
  • Faux Affably Evil: If her intro episode didn't make it clear, Episode 12 explains it. She tries to murder Dyson in cold blood, with sheer, manic glee.
  • Horny Devil: She is the first succubus (except for herself) that Bo meets.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: She first introduces herself as another succubus only to later reveal that she is Bo's mother.
  • Meaningful Name: Not so much Saskia, but Aoife, which means "pleasure" or "radiance," but is also sometimes anglicized as Eva... Eve.
  • Missing Mom: To Bo.
  • Never Found the Body: It was gone by the time Bo got down to it. We found out why in Season 3.
  • Parental Incest: Kisses Bo full on the mouth. Makes you wonder what Succubi do with their young to teach them how to control their powers...
  • Slashed Throat: Courtesy of Hades in her final episode.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: She may, in fact, have been in hers the ENTIRE TIME. Using Thralls like she NOT good for mental health.
  • Walking Spoiler: For the first season.
  • The Vamp: The first other succubus that Bo (and the viewers) meet.

    The Garuda
Played by: Raoul Trujillo

The Garuda was a member of an Ancient race predating the Fae.

  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He appears dressed in a suit.
  • Badass Longcoat: Wears one.
  • Bad Boss: He treats his underlings only marginally better than he does his enemies.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 2.
  • Breaking Speech: Gives one to the heroes during their first real encounter. It's horribly effective at making them turn on each other before Bo manages to restore some semblance of unit cohesion.
  • Demonic Possession: Just one of his powers.
  • The Dreaded: He is feared by both Light and Dark Fae as a virtually unstoppable force.
  • Emotion Eater: He feeds on the Faes' hatred and aggression.
  • Energy Being: It seems the human form he usually appears in is mostly A Form You Are Comfortable With (for a given definition of "comfortable"). The Garuda's actual essence looks like a large avian creature made of pure fiery energy.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Boy, does this guy love the sound of his own voice.
  • Fantastic Racism: The Fae are to him what Puny Humans are to the Fae, which is a totally new and unwanted experience for many of them. Needless to say he considers humans even lower on the scale, although that mostly results in him completely ignoring us in his schemes. We're neither a threat nor of use to him.
  • Flaming Sword: His Weapon of Choice.
  • The Ghost: He's first mentioned about halfway into Season 2, but doesn't appear in person until the climax of it.
  • Hate Plague: Arguably his most dangerous power; he can infect other individuals with his sheer hatred.
  • Hero Killer: Kills Ciara and Lachlan in the same episode.
  • Hot Wings: He occasionally flares a pair out, mostly just to intimidate and once to toss Bo's entire team around like toys.

    Dr. Isaac Taft 
A manipulative and psychotic human scientist.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After Dyson reveals that Lauren turned him into a Cabbit-human hybrid instead of a wolf-human, Taft begs for his life and offers Dyson riches if he lets him go. It doesn't work.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 3. However...
  • Big Bad Wannabe: In the grand scheme of things, he counts as this compared to the other Big Bad threats of the series. His plan is on a much smaller scale, it doesn't take very long for Bo and Tamsin to break his prisoners out of the facility and, after he finds out he's not a match for Dyson, begs for his life and is eaten off-screen.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: In his first two appearances he presents himself as a charming gentleman who is merely interested in Lauren's research and offers her a job that will allow her to pursue her own interests. It becomes clear in his next appearance that he is anything but.
  • Eaten Alive: His ultimate fate at Dyson's hands when he realizes how screwed he is. Dyson gives him a head start and the next time we see him he is covered in blood and spits out Taft's ear.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: All of his scheming have as a goal to make himself Fae.
  • Mad Scientist: He captured, tortured and experimented on dozens of Fae, leaving their corpses behind in mass graves, all so he could become the strongest Fae in the world.

    The Wanderer 
  • The Dreaded: For a long time, the only thing we really know about him is that the few Fae who seem to be aware of him are terrified of crossing him.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Until the second half of Season 4, he's known only as "The Wanderer". Justified since all memories of him have been suppressed as part of his curse. His name is finally revealed to be Rainer.
  • The Ghost: Until the end of Season 3, but we don't get to see much of him until the second half of season 4.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of Season 3. Not only does he have Tamsin under his control but, throughout the season, he is working behind the scenes to try and make Bo his. However, it turns out this is not The Wanderers doing, but Hades.
  • Leitmotif: Fittingly enough, "The Wanderer," as sung by Dion. The Wanderer usually announces his presence by making a nearby radio play the song.
  • Wife Husbandry: According to Tamsin's confession in the fourth season Christmas episode, the Wanderer is determined to get the perfect wife, even if he has to father her himself...


Hades / Jack

Played By: Eric Roberts

Bo's biological father.

  • Bed Trick: Pulls this on Tamsin in Season 5, when he sleeps with her disguised as Bo and gets her pregnant.
  • Breaking Speech: He gives Bo an especially brutal one in the series finale.
  • Hidden Depths: Who'd have thought Hades, Lord of the Underworld, recognizes advanced stem cell research that's way ahead of its time just by glancing at some formulae and equations scribbled on a whiteboard? He even gives the gridlocked scientist responsible a useful tip on how to proceed.
  • Neck Lift: Does this to Iris one-handed so Bo can trap the Nyx inside of her in an adamantine Soul Jar.

Played By: Amanda Walsh

One of the Ancients and therefore one of the most powerful Fae that ever existed, she serves as the Big Bad for much of Season 5, together with her husband Heratio and her daughter Iris.

  • Abusive Parents: No matter how much she claims to love Iris, all we ever get to see is how she abuses her daughter for her own ends, up to and including using her as a vessel for Nyx, the Ancient Greek goddess of the night, and therefore turning her into an unwitting Walking Wasteland.
  • A God Am I: She fancies herself a god. Problem is, she's probably right, given how earlier civilizations knew and worshipped her as Amun, Odin, Jupiter and Zeus.
  • Cat Fight: Gets into a quite unflattering one with Bo. She loses.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Bringing this about is her stated intention and the sole reason she manifested on Earth.
  • Evil Uncle: She's Bo's paternal aunt/uncle.
  • Grand Theft Me: She possesses the body of a woman named Elizabeth Helm in order to walk and act on Earth.
  • Human Sacrifice: She's quite fond of them, if her dialogue is anything to go by. What's unusual is that she doesn't perform them herself but wants them performed in her name instead.
  • Jerkass: A massive one thanks to a combination of It's All About Me, Smug Snake and A God Am I (though that last one is actually justified, considering who she is). What she plans to do to humanity and the whole planet doesn't exactly help.
  • Oh, Crap!: Her face screams this when she hears Bo summoning Hades from Tartarus through the door.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: She wants to wipe out humanity and the whole world with them so she can start over in a new one in where she's again worshipped as a god.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Not as bad as her daughter, but she still has some impressive abilities like summoning tornadoes.
  • Shock and Awe: Would you expect anything less from Zeus him/herself?
  • Smug Snake: A premium-grade example.
  • Weather Manipulation: One of her powers, including the aforementioned tornado summoning.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: She loves pulling this on the people whose services she employed, including Cassie, the oracle, whom she throws off a really high balcony, and her husband/wife Heratio/Hera.

Minor Characters

    The Ash I 
Portrayed by: Clé Bennett

  • Bald, Black Leader Guy: Invoked. The first Ash is both black and a leader, although he has hair. Also notable is that the camera cuts always lead to making the viewer perceive him as larger, whether he happens to be standing on stairs while talking down at Bo or being in the center (and somewhat in front of the rest) of a Power Trio. In reality, he might actually be about as tall, or even shorter, than Bo.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Although he doesn't actually die, he is the first established character to get blown up and suffer life-threatening injuries that don't heal up immediately in the show.
  • Guttural Growler: Constantly speaks in a low, growly voice.
  • Jerkass: Started the tradition of Ashes treating others like dirt.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the Season 1 finale. Even though it's never made explicitly clear, it's established that the Ash can no longer perform his duties (after being the Sole Survivor of a suicide bombing) and a new Ash is selected at the beginning of Season 2.
  • No Name Given: To the point that it's easy to forget that "Ash" is his title.

    The Ash II (Lachlan) 

The Ash II (Lachlan)

Portrayed by: Vincent Walsh

    The Morrigan 

Evony Fleurette Marquise

The Morrigan

Portrayed by: Emmanuelle Vaugier

  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Her full name is Evony Fleurette Marquise. After this is revealed in Season 2, the rest of the cast begin to call her by her first name.
  • Bad Boss: Has no compunctions at all about threatening, belittling and verbally abusing her underlings day in, day out. When her personal assistant very graphically commits suicide in her office because of how she is treated, Evony doesn't bat an eyelash and complains about having to find a new assistant instead - again, while the dying suicide is still listening.
  • Body Horror: Her Fae power revolves around feeding off of someone's - especially artists' - talent. If she does it in a single concentrated attack instead of draining it over time, her unfortunate victim melts into a puddle of gory goo on the floor in a matter of seconds. It's easily one of the squickiest methods to kill someone in a series full of horrible ways to die.
  • Break the Haughty: While not completely broken, as of Season 5 she's a mere shadow of her former self, courtesy of Lauren.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Lauren turns her into a human in the penultimate episode of Season 4.
    Lauren: Did you just try to melt me? That's adorable.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Surprisingly, given the show's protagonist being an aversion of the trope, the Morrigan is shown asking Bo to pepper spray her after Bo uses her "talents" to weasel out information in the same episode that she's shown being humiliated by Vex on-camera after trying to seduce a handsome young man who wanted to work in her branch of Dark Fae politics.
  • Evil Is Petty: Given that she is the leader of nearly half of the Fae races and the opposite number of the Ash, the Morrigan is kind of pathetic in comparison to all three of the ones we've known so far.
  • Evil Wears Black: Either this or red.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She sometimes pretends to be friendly only for it to turn out to be an act when she gets what she wants.
  • Gold Digger: What she was forced to become in order to maintain her luxurious lifestyle after Lauren turned her into a human.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: For most of the series, Evony is a wealthy and lethally powerful Fae, the undisputed leader of the Dark and an incessantly scheming Magnificent Bastard with nearly unlimited resources. By Season 5 she's been turned into a human, the very thing she so utterly despises, and alongside her Faedom she also lost her position as the Morrigan, naturally. Bereft of her powers, she's reduced to being a Gold Digger who pours her husband's money into finding a cure for her condition, knowing the one who did this to her in the first place is also the only one capable of reversing the change, has no intentions to do so and just exploits the hell out of her. When the Ancient she had imprisoned for ages escapes from confinement, she is forced by Bo and Lauren to serve as bait to lure him out, and everyone including herself knows full well how utterly defenseless she is. One could actually feel pity for her if she wasn't still acting like the world's biggest Alpha Bitch.
  • Lady in Red: In most, if not all, of her appearances, she appears in a slinky red number with matching lipstick.
  • Meaningful Name: A title rather than a name, but the leader of the Dark Fae is given the title of "The Morrigan" which refers to the Celtic goddess of war and strife. It translates as "phantom queen" or "great queen."
  • The Muse: The Morrigan is a type of muse-Fae who drives artists she gets involved with insane.
  • Rich Bitch: She's obviously affluent, always immaculately dressed and made up, and easily one of the least likable persons in the entire cast.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Befriends Lauren, thinking that she has the upper hand in their relationship.
  • The Vamp: Seduction is one weapon in her arsenal.

Portrayed by: Aron Tager

  • Affably Evil: The first Dark Fae who's not a complete prick.
  • Alter Kocker: He shows himself as an old man with a Yiddish accent.
  • Killed Offscreen: Disappears after Season 1 and isn't mentioned again until the beginning of Season 5 where a throwaway line reveals that he fell victim to the Una Mens' purge. At least Cassie came back for Season 4 and 5.
  • Kosher Nostra: Definitely presents as Jewish and is essentially a Dark Fae mob boss.

    Ryan Lambert 
Portrayed by: Anthony Lemke

  • Affably Evil: He's selfish and has a disregard for human life, but comes off as friendly and charming.
  • Captain Ersatz: If he only had an AI in his lair, the Tony Stark impression would be complete.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: As a Loki, he is a natural inventive genius.

Played By: Shanice Banton

As the daughter of Zee and Heratio, Iris is one of the Ancients and therefore one of the most powerful Fae in history. Earlier civilizations like the Ancient Greek worshipped her as a goddess.

  • Black Babe Dies First: Of the four corporeal Ancients to walk the Earth, she's the only one of color and the first one to snuff it.
  • Grand Theft Me: She possesses the body of a young woman named Cecilia Lawrence in order to walk and act on Earth. It's somewhat unusual inasmuch as that her host's mind is still alive and conscious while both share the same body, and they actually appear to get along quite well.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: She comes across as a playful woman that just wants to have friends, go out and have fun without her parents dictating her every move. Too bad they have other plans for her.
  • Killed Off for Real: Gets simultaneously strangled by Hades and soul-trapped by Bo in a desperate attempt at averting the apocalypse.
  • Living MacGuffin: Her parents' entire plan at world domination rests on Iris' insanely destructive powers.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Once her Power Nullifier is off, her mere presence on Earth brings the whole planet to the brink of utter destruction within just a few hours.
  • Power Nullifier: Her parents constantly make her wear an adamantine bracelet made from the only material in existence that can keep Ancients at bay. It appears to work very well in suppressing her abilities because as soon as she takes it off, the total annihilation of every living thing on Earth is suddenly mere hours away.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Initially, she's completely unaware of her powers and doesn't understand why everyone around her keeps dying. When the truth comes out, she doesn't take it particularly well.
  • Walking Wasteland: Iris carries the Nyx inside of her, a primordial god-like entity so utterly destructive that everything she touches turns to dust within seconds. Her parents' plan revolves around unleashing her full power to cause The End of the World as We Know It. She's so dangerous that even Zeus and Hera themselves are secretly afraid of her and do everything they can to keep her under control as much as possible.
  • The Woobie: Has shades of this for most of her arc, at least until she goes off the deep end and appears to embrace her role.
