Main characters

     Charlotte 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charlotte_73.png
A happy-go-lucky blue girl from Vermont who defines The Pollyanna. She unknowingly makes Vendetta look foolish and incompetent, so Vendetta plots to kill her. Despite her naivete and obliviousness, Charlotte always avoids certain death. In case you haven't figured out yet, she drives Vendetta insane. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.
  • Adorkable: She's cheerful, naive, and endearing.
  • All Girls Like Ponies: Ponies are one of her favorite animals.
  • All-Loving Hero: To a ridiculous degree. She sees everyone as lovable.
  • Blue Is Heroic: She's a kind girl whose whole body is blue.
  • Cheerful Child: Charlotte always manages to find the positive aspects of something.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She shrugs off the death threats of Vendetta, and is in general rather air headed.
  • The Cutie: Charlotte is an innocent little girl with a naive sense of simplicity.
  • The Ditz: Has zero sense of logic.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Strawberries are one of the few things in this world she cannot stand.
  • Flanderization: Hit hardest. She gets dumber, more optimistic, and more invincible as the show goes on.
  • Fluffy Tamer: She tamed the scissor fiend into being her pet.
  • Foil: She's a foil to Vendetta in every way possible. Charlotte is a sweet, naïve little girl who's too hard to knock down, while Vendetta is a cynical jerkass who plots destruction everywhere she goes.
  • The Fool: She unrealistically manages to maintain the highest degree of luck possible no matter what fates pursue her.
  • Genki Girl: Charlotte is perpetually enthusiastic.
  • Girly Girl: She loves rainbows, cute animals, baking cupcakes, dancing, singing, the color pink, and makeovers.
  • Hair Decorations: A bow.
  • Identical Granddaughter: To Charlene.
  • Idiot Houdini: Charlotte is a frequent victim of many villainous creatures who plan to eat her alive, yet she manages to survive their exploitations out of dumb luck.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Sort of. Her entire body is blue anyways, and she's absolutely childlike and naïve.
  • Insult Backfire: Vendetta constantly tries to insult her, but she always takes it as a compliment. Taking it further, she mistakes projectiles thrown at her as gifts.
  • Kiddie Kid: She's in fourth grade, yet has the playfulness and overall qualities of a preschooler.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Charlotte is a really nice girl, but her brain isn't all that functional.
  • Made of Iron: She can withstand so much physical abuse that it contradicts the laws of physics.
  • Nice Girl: She can be overly friendly at times.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Hard to find anything to wipe that grin off of her face.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her grandmother says they're astronauts. We don't know for sure what happened to them.
  • The Pollyanna: Her defining trait is her ceaseless optimism.
  • Raised by Grandparents: In the TV series, she's shown to be raised by her grandmother Charlene.
  • Smart Jerk and Nice Moron: The nice moron to Vendetta's smart jerk. While Charlotte lacks a critical mind, her good intentions more than make up for it, in contrast to Vendetta, who knows how evil she is and does it anyway.
  • Stupid Good: Charlotte is overly-trusting of everybody.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: "I can hold my breath for niiine hours!"
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The sweet and fashionista girly girl to Vendetta's gross-loving evil tomboy.
  • True Blue Femininity: Her entire body is blue.
  • Vocal Evolution: In the TV series it's more obvious she's voiced by a woman in her thirties. She sounds like a child again in the most recent web episode (made for 2012 April Fool's Day), so it could just be the mic. Or the dialogue for that episode was recorded years ago.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: She bends reality by using the idealism in her mind to grant her a naive outlook.

     Vendetta 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vendetta.png
A wicked young girl who makes monsters, called "fiends", from a recipe book and uses them to take control of Clamburg. She spends her time tormenting the residents, especially her classmates, into submission. Voiced by Aglaia Mortcheva.
  • Abusive Parents: To the fiends she creates, who, despite meaning of them loyally serving her, she treats as only useful tools at best. Unsurprisingly, Charlotte is often able sway Vendetta's fiends, just by showing them basic kindness.
  • Art Evolution: Much more symmetrical in the TV series.
  • Asshole Victim: Of Charlotte's antics. She deserves them due to how bitchy she tends to be.
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: So much that she absolutely hates the idea of having a shred of good in her.
  • Big "NO!": Prone to doing this when her plans fail.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: An exaggerated example. She is obsessed with being as vile as humanly possible and feels good by doing bad.
  • Character Exaggeration: In the TV series, she's a little more of a bitch, taking more pleasure in her villainy, and tosses out the word "stupid" much more often.
  • Clint Squint: Her eyes are always squinted up like this.
  • Comedic Sociopath: How much of a Creepy Child she is will always be played for laughs.
  • Creepy Child: A sadistic, cruel, and overall terrifying kid.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Her attempts at being sarcastic often fail though.
  • Drama Queen: She often acts like this, like when she reacted as if Charlotte had poisoned, when she had actually just sneaked vegetables in her food.
  • Even Bad Women Love Their Mamas: She keeps her parents as shrinked pets in a hamster cage. While this could be seen as mere cruelty, it is implied that she cares about them in her own twisted way. The thing is, she is such a Card-Carrying Villain, she can't bring herself close to admitting it, even to herself.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: A possible interpretation. Charlotte, Marion and Rubella all showed a rather close interest in her.
  • Enfant Terrible: A young girl who is very sadistic.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Pretty much a guarantee that anytime she hams it up, there will hardly be any scenery left.
  • Evil Is Petty: She tries to get Charlotte killed in the first episode, just for annoying her, by trying to be her friend and have fun.
  • Expressive Hair: Her pigtails fly up when she yells.
  • Foil: She's exactly one to Charlotte in that the latter is a sweet, naive Cheerful Child with good intentions, while Vendetta is a cynical jerkass with little redeeming qualities.
  • Fun-Hating Villain: Vendetta hates singing, happiness, and vegetables (bar onions). Whenever she sees somebody else having fun, like main character All-Loving Hero Charlotte, she seeks to ruin their good time. If she ever plays nice with another person, it will probably be for her own selfish reasons and not because she actually wants to have fun.
  • Giggling Villain: "Hee hee heh heh heh...hahaha."
  • Girlish Pigtails: Although not at all girly, Vendetta has pigtails.
  • Green and Mean: Her whole body is green.
  • It's All About Me: Vendetta is narcissistic.
  • Jerkass: She's selfish, cynical, full of herself, and plots evil everywhere she goes.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Anytime she does nice things, you know there's a selfish motive behind it.
  • Lean and Mean: Ironically...
  • Mad Scientist: On top of being the creator of fiends, which she uses to terrorize her town For the Evulz, she also created a cloning machine.
  • Meaningful Name: "Vendetta" is Italian for "blood feud".
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Her name means "blood feud"..
  • Never Say "Die": Almost always says "I will destroy you!". In the web series, the only time she doesn't is when she thinks she's in hell. She uses "dead" more often in the TV series.
  • Narcissist: She even has pictures of herself all over her house's walls.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She is obsessed with scary stuff.
  • Pet the Dog: Strongly averted in her case. Just tell yourself that any time it looks like Vendetta's actually doing something nice for somebody, there is always a sinister ulterior motive. Though the fact that she keeps her parents alive might mean something.
  • Sickly Green Glow: Her body is green.
  • Slasher Smile: Pulls one in "Super Evil" when trying to learn one of Charlotte's "evil" ways - giving out cookies with a smile.
  • Tomboy: In contrast to Charlotte, she likes gross stuff.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The gross-loving, evil tomboy to Charlotte's sweet and fashionista girly girl.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Clams, beef jerky, grape punch, and Onions On a Stick.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Puts on this appearance with her constant angry squinting, but her eyes are actually as large and round as the other characters'.

Fiends

     Grudge 
A giant hamster fiend who works as Vendetta's sidekick. His role is to protect Vendetta, intimidate the students and give out physical threats. Voiced by Peter Merryman.

     Scissor Fiend / Buttons II 
A small black bird-like fiend with a beak that works like extreme scissors, cutting and slicing through anything. In the web series, this is the first fiend Vendetta makes for the intention of killing Charlotte.

  • Bad Powers, Bad Fiend: Subverted. It may have sliced Charlotte's house in half, but it turns out to be very caring towards both Charlotte and Vendetta, and very talented at making paper snowflakes.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Is a black colored fiend with the power to slice anything apart, but is shown to be one of the sweetest.
  • Feathered Fiend: May not have feathers, but it's definitely a fiend, and it's shaped like a bird. Subverted as it eventually becomes a tame pet of Charlotte's.
  • Precious Puppy: What Charlotte thinks it is.

     Giant Kitty 
A giant red cat, said to be the first fiend Vendetta made. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.
  • Cats Are Mean: He's a vicious cat and unlike other fiends, isn't even loyal to Vendetta.
  • Cats Hate Water: He was totally tamed by Charlotte until she mentioned he would need a bath.
  • Extreme Omnivore: He's eaten a piano, a dog, a sofa, Charlotte, Vendetta...
  • Mega Neko: A giant cat.

     Rubella 
A fiend who replaced Grudge as Vendetta's sidekick in episode 18, only appearing in the web series. The most human-like fiend in appearance, she resembles Frankenstein's Monster. She starts to view Vendetta as her friend. Voiced by Elissa Calfin.

Stated by Charlene to be astronauts. They may have actually died.

School

     Mr. Milk 
A beige man who's the schoolteacher of room 4, though he never gets the opportunity to actually teach anything. He's the most fearful of Vendetta, and has a red Toothy Bird keeping him in check. Voiced by Peter Merryman.
  • Expressive Hair: Almost completely bald, but has a few hairs on his head that stick up when he's scared or nervous.
  • Expy: Amy Winfrey worked on South Park before starting her web projects, and Mr. Milk looks very similar to Mr. Garrison. His personality is the very opposite, however.
  • Extreme Doormat: Made into one out of fear of Vendetta.
  • Hidden Depths: Web episode 14 and "Swiss Banker" shows he has a very nice tenor singing voice.

     Marion 
The nervous pale blue girl who sits next to Charlotte. She was the first to warn Charlotte of Vendetta. Voiced by Amy Winfrey.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: In a web episode commentary (that you can't see unless you won the Making Fiends Art Contest) she believes her glass animals can talk and eat.
  • Fat Girl: She's female and chubby.
  • Hidden Depths: The TV series shows she's been planning to escape Clamburg for years.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: She was an overweight girl of typical height in the webtoon, but in the TV series she towers over every student except for Marvin, and he's very skinny.
  • Odango Hair: Her hair is in two buns.
  • Parental Abandonment: We never see her parents. Which may explain a few things.
  • Screaming Woman: Her main role in the web series, where she would go "EEEEEEEE!". Her scream in the TV series is more like "Aaaaaugh!", probably because she sounded too similar to Charlotte's hamster, Buttons.
  • Shrinking Violet: Marion is nervous and shy.

     Malachi 
The first student to appear. He gives Charlotte dire cautions about Vendetta and her fiends, but she doesn't understand him and ignores them. He and his family are Puritans. Voiced by Peter Merryman.

     Marvin 
A tall dark green boy. He's easy to take advantage of, which Vendetta exploits. Once an Episode he'll exclaim "My [noun]!" because his possessions are constantly being taken away from him. Voiced by Peter Merryman.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He's brighter and greener in the TV series.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Marvin the Middle Manager".
  • Ambidextrous Sprite: In the TV series, his hair changes direction.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: He doesn't pay attention in class, acts kind of dumb, is easy to control...he could have a learning disability.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: According to his Nick bio, he has eight of them.
  • Butt-Monkey: Lots of bad stuff happens to him.
  • Disappeared Dad: In "Parents" we only see his mother. Marion mentions his father in her webtoon DVD commentary, saying his father works in a factory that puts stickers on bananas (which is why Marvin brought a banana to Show and Tell) but that commentary also showed Marion was an extreme Cloud Cuckoo Lander. Either way, this may have all been retconned.
  • Ow, My Body Part!: His Catchphrase is "My __!" Once it was "My pencil!"
  • Unlucky Everydude: Appears to be the most normal of the kids but gets the hardest luck.
  • Verbal Tic: He'll always start with his sentences with "my".

     Mort 
A student added in the TV series. He has yet to have any speaking roles, and all he's done is shiver constantly. According to his Nick bio, he's extremely friendly and gives out nonsensical advice.
  • The Cameo: We see him in the last two web episodes. He's not in the 2012 web episode, however.
  • Cloudcuckoo Lander: According to his Nick bio.
  • Nerd Glasses: Is the only student wearing glasses and also the smallest and wimpiest.
