    As a group

  • Animal Motif: Each of the Mysticons is associated with an animal, most of them mystical, and can unlock further abilities based off of the said animal.
  • The Chosen Many: All four of them were picked by the Dragon Disk to act as the new Mysticons.
  • Clark Kenting: Their Mysticon forms look mostly identical to their normal selves, only with different costumes, haircuts and Facial Markings as the sole thing to conceal their faces (except for Zarya, who also changes hair color); despite this, not even people who personally know them, such as Arkayna's brother Gawayne or Zarya's old friend Kitty Boon, are capable of recognizing them. This is particularly blatant with Arkayna, who is part of the royal family (and thus Famed In-Story), yet can still run around without anyone seeing through her disguise.
  • Facial Markings: Colorful ones that resemble a superhero Domino Mask.
  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: Arkayna is the Mage, Emerald, as the Mysticon Knight, is the fighter, and Thief is divided between Piper and Zarya. Though in practice Malvaron fills the role of mage and Arkayna fights more like a Magic Knight .
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: After Necrafa's return, all four of them are declared outlaws by the Astromancers for their various misteps, with the civilians actually cheering when they are almost arrested. Later subverted when the people they saved stand to defend them, eventually pressing the Astromancers into withdrawing their outlaw status.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: A Western take on the trope, but they follow most of the tropes associated with the archetype, as four super-powered girls who use their magic to fight evil, including double identities and Transformation Sequences.
  • Transformation Trinket: If Episode 8 proves anything, the Mysticons use belt buckles to transform into their Super Mode.

    Arkayna Goodfey/Dragon Mage
Voiced by: Alyson Court

The princess of Drake City, Arkayna finds herself chosen to be the Mysticon Dragon Mage after her parents were turned to bone by Dreadbane. She now acts as the team leader.

  • Aggressive Categorism: Believe all pirates to be nothing but trouble. Even calls Zarya a pirate after it looks like she betrayed the Mysticons.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: At times, especially during episode 40 when her restored mother pays more attention to her other daughter, Zarya.
  • …But He Sounds Handsome: When being interviewed, she makes a Shout-Out to herself: "Love you, Dragon Mage!"
  • Dual Wielding: Can split her magic staff into two smaller staffs.
  • Emerald Power: Her theme color is green, and is the leader of the Mysticons.
  • Fatal Flaw: Arrogance. Arkayna has trained her whole life to be a Warrior Princess and she knows it. It takes her some time to realize the whole Mysticon thing isn't just about her, but also about her team in general.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Was jealous of her mother for praising Zarya in episode 40.
  • Hair Flip: Apparently has one that annoys Zarya enough to put her on her Enemies List.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper/Mood-Swinger: Throws these at Gawayne for mocking her in "The Coronation".
  • He Is Not My Boyfriend: As after being freed from the Love's Breath effect, she and Malvaron are disgusted by the fact that they were almost married under the influence. When they do end up developing feelings for each other later, she is notably unwilling to admit it.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: A non-lethal variant; she blames herself for her parents being turned to Bones by Dreadbane, and is desperate to cure them.
  • It's All About Me: She's nowhere near Gawayne's level, but Arkayna has a nasty habit of putting her own interests first. Although usually for petty things, it's portrayed sympathetically when she ignores the astromancers' orders to destroy the codex to turn her parents back to flesh.
  • The Leader: Declares herself leader of the team in episode 2. It's not clear if the Dragon Mage is traditionally the leader, or Arkayna took charge as the Princess.
  • Long-Lost Relative: It is revealed that she has a fraternal twin sister: Zarya Moonwolf.
  • Magic Staff: Her weapon. It can spit into two and Dual Wield.
  • Mythical Motifs: The Dragon.
  • Oh, Crap!: She is scared to death when seeing Necrafa come back.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her parents were turned to stone.
  • Punny Name: Her name sounds like "arcana".
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Drake City's princess, and in stark contrast to Gawayne, she secretly protects the city as a superhero.
  • Selective Obliviousness: In “Eternal Starshine of the Mage's Mind,” Arkayna refuses to pity Proxima on the grounds that her former friend chose to become a villain. She changes her opinion after seeing Proxima’s lonely childhood and how insensitively her past self embraced Zarya as her real twin at Proxima’s expense.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: Unlike Zarya and Piper (who both grew up as Street Urchins) or Em (who was merely working for the royal family), Arkayna was raised as a princess in a palace and with all the luxury that implies. As thus, she isn't above acting arrogant or flaunting her royal status from time to time, and have prejudices toward some people (in particular pirates and thieves, which causes her to clash with Zarya initially). Still, she is a good person at heart, and genuinely wishes the best for Drake City.
  • Terrified of Germs: Hates anything disgusting to the point that she's shown carrying hand sanitizer with her "Lost and Found".
  • Warrior Princess: A member of the royal family, as well as the leader of the local superhero team.

    Emerald Goldenbraid/Knight
Voiced by: Evany Rosen

The dwarven royal griffon wrangler, and Arkayna's friend.

  • Apologizes a Lot: The reason Zarya put her on her Enemies List.
  • An Axe to Grind: In promotional pictures, she wields an axe instead of a sword.
  • Berserk Button: Do not play with her feelings nor otherwise try to use them against her. She might fall for it at first, but the moment she finds out, she'll make sure it hurts for you.
    • Also just hurting her in general.
    • Or sneaking into her house.
    • Or mentioning all the "annoying little things she does"
    • Also attempting to harm any of her loved ones.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Em is rather nice, quiet and a bit of an Extreme Doormat, but when she does get angry, she can be rather brutal.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Emerald has a big-boned figure which is accentuated by her shortness, but she is no less cute. This body type seems to be typical of her race.
  • Braids of Action: Wears a braid as the Mysticon Knight.
  • …But He Sounds Handsome: During an interview, she makes a Shout-Out to herself as the Knight.
  • Catching Some Z's: According to Zarya, she snores like an ogre.
  • Catchphrase: "By the Hammer of Harmon!". She uses it as a Share Phrase with her father to let him to know she's the Mysticon Knight.
  • Cool Sword: Her signature weapon is a sword capable of shooting Sword Beam.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Is called Pootinkle by her parents. She is less embarrassed when her love interest Kasey uses it.
    • According to subtitles, Kasey is saying "bootinkle".
  • Emerald Power: Subverted. She's called Emerald (following her family's gemstone name pattern), but apart from that, she has nothing to the color green in general.
  • Extreme Doormat: This is arguably her greatest weakness. Emerald instinctively yields to authority, and has trouble telling people when they've upset her; she will usually bottle up her hurt feelings until they burst, which can backfire. She literally bottles her anger toward Arkayna up in "Quest Of The Vexed", eventually trigger a Hate Plague on the entire city by accident.
  • Family Theme Naming: Her family is all named after different types of minerals. She even named her griffon steed Topaz.
  • Fantastic Drug: Em's vex-away canisters work like one. She uses them to take away her anger rather than vent until she becomes dependent on them, managing to fill thirty in under a month.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: While she eventually settled for griffon wrangler as her official job, she is, like many of her people, quite talented with technology, having built a Mini-Mecha when she was younger. She regularly combines her magic with home-made gadgets and bombs in later episodes.
  • Genius Bruiser: Being a dwarf, she is the most physical-oriented of the group, and her fighting style as the Mysticon Knight primarily involves melee combat, whereas her teammates rely on long range weaponry and spells. She also happens to be quite intelligent and a talented Gadgeteer Genius.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Her hair is naturally blonde, and she's one of the main heroes.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard/Shock and Awe: A variant, in "Total Eclipse of the Golden Heart", her mother tases Willa, electrocuting her. Later early on in "The Foz Who Saved Lotus Night", she gets electrocuted as well. Turns out it happened to her because she said "Conditioner of the Gods" and prior to that, "Shampoo of the Gods".
  • In-Series Nickname: Her name's Emerald, but others tend to call her "Em".
  • Ironic Name: Emerald, despite her name, is not the Mysticon associated with green.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Has the ability to form energy shields from her armor.
  • Meaningful Name: Her last name only. As she has blonde hair that she wears a braid in her Mysticon form.
  • Mini-Mecha: She built a robot when she was younger with the help of her father. In a later episode, she recovers it and upgrades it with her magic, making it part of her Mysticon arsenal.
  • Mythical Motifs: The Unicorn.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Sort of; she is a dwarf, and as we get to see her family in the show, both her and her species follow most of the traits associated with the fantasy archetype, including being skilled in crafting and mining, and males being bearded and gruff (her father definitely is). However, she herself is rather friendly, cheerful and a bit of a pushover, as well as rather attractive.
  • Super Gullible: Often times thinks people (especially attractive guys) have good hearts and believe anything they say.
  • Sword Beam: Can fire blasts of energy from her Cool Sword.
  • This Is a Drill: Her Mech has a drill hand.

    Piper Willowbrook/Striker
Voiced by: Ana Sani

An eccentric, cheerful young elf, as well as Zarya's friend and partner.

  • Allergic to Love: Or romance, at least. Whenever witnessing displays of romantic feelings, Piper tends to have disgusted reactions, especially when it comes to Arkayna and Malvaron.
    • However, she seems to be slowly getting over it, as shown by how she said "aww" with Zarya and Emerald while watching Arkayna and Malvaron kiss.
  • Ambiguously Brown: She has the darkest skin tone of the main four.
  • Berserk Button: Dislikes being called a "thief" or some saying it was her imagination when it wasn't
  • Big Eater: In "The Edge of Two Morrows", she challenges the same troll Kitty previously defeated in a pizza-eating contest, and has an even easier time defeating him than Kitty did. While Kitty actually seemed to be struggling by the end of her own contest, Piper shows no discomfort whatsoever.
  • Big "NO!": Lets out a long, exaggerated one when she learns that Necrafa was originally an elf before she found her mask.
  • Break the Cutie/Heroic BSoD:
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She's constantly clowning, joking, and generally acting silly. She's basically a cross between Pinkie Pie and a heroic version of Harley Quinn.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Has both the look and the typically excitable personality to match.
  • Gasshole: She can burp extremely powerfully when she wants to (which Emerald's younger brothers find endlessly entertaining). She's good enough that when an earthquake coincidentally happened right after one of her burps, she assumed she caused it.
  • Fiery Redhead: Downplayed. She's feisty, but not aggressive or short-tempered.
  • Genki Girl: Female, cheerful, easily excited and a bit of a Cloud Cuckoo Lander.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Has two in civilian form, and three as a Mysticon.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Twice.
    • In "Scourge of the Seven Skies", Piper is increasingly jealous of Zarya catching up with her oldest friend Kitty, to the point that it turns her off to Sky Pirates in general.
    • Also in "Monster Hunt" when Zarya was spending more time with Arkayna than her.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Zarya.
  • Hidden Depths: Piper didn't name her griffin "Miss Paisley" because it's a random, fun-sounding name; She used to have a stuffed griffin under the same name. Also, it's strongly implied she is acting so goofy and upbeat to cope with her past of being abandoned as a child.
  • I Call It "Vera": Names her weapon "Hoopy".
  • Justified Criminal: Formally. While she wouldn't admit it, she did help Zarya steal food to help the other undercity kids
  • Likes Older Men: In "How to Train a Mysticon" she calls Nova Terron cute, and later exclaims his voice is awesome. She looks like a teen girl and he is a white haired balding old man... Although being an elf she is Older Than She Looks.
  • Mythical Motifs: The Phoenix.
  • Older than They Look: By Episode 11, she has become 110.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Piper is a nickname Zarya gave her. Her full name is Pyperia Ashryn Elvanestri.
  • Only Sane Woman: In Episode 10, upon realizing the effects of the Love's Breath flower, she tries to get a lovestruck Arkayna and Malvaron back on the mission, and is constantly disgusted by their mind-controlled love for each other.
    Piper: (throwing a tantrum) I object! I object! Not just because it's gross, but because we need to help Zarya!
  • Our Elves Are Different: Physically matches the trope, as she is human-looking aside from the traditional Pointy Ears, Long-Lived, and clearly displays impressive speed and agility (though since all Mysticons are capable of this, it's hard to say if she really is better at it than they are), as well as enhanced senses and an interest for magic, judging by her collection of magic items.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: By far the most humorous and quirky of the four protagonists.
  • Pointy Ears: Justified. She's an elf.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Uses these in Episode 11 to convince her friends to get her a pet for her 110th birthday.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's over a century old, but has the form of someone much younger.
  • Rings of Death: Her weapon.
  • Sad Clown: Implied; Piper constantly acts perky and cracks jokes, but behind her goofy behaviour, she has severe anxiety issues due to having been abandoned as a child before she met Zarya, to the point the temporary departure of the latter really takes a toll on her.
  • Squee: Makes this noise when she gets excited.
  • Super Senses: Being an elf, she has distinctly more acute senses than her teammates, allowing to see and hear things several miles away.

    Zarya Moonwolf/Ranger
Voiced by: Nicki Burke

  • Animal Motifs: The Wolf.
  • Badass Cape: Is the only caped Mysticon.
  • Blue Is Heroic: She has a blue color scheme in both normal and Mysticon form.
  • …But He Sounds Handsome: During an interview, she makes a Shout-Out to herself as Ranger.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: The main source of drama in "Scourge of the Seven Skies". Zarya starts hanging out with her old Sky Pirate gang the Pink Skulls and the other Mysticons aren't happy about it, especially since they suspect the pirates of a recent string of robberies. When Piper steals a flash drive from the Skulls to get evidence, Zarya is outraged that her teammates would do something so underhanded and rejoins the pirates—only to realize they were not only Evil All Along, but are planning to steal the Mysticons' Dragon Disk. Much drama ensues before Zarya reunites with the Mysticons for good.
    However, The Pink Skulls do become allies of the Mysticons in episode 12.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: One she shares with Kitty Boon and the rest of the Pink Skull's crew; back when they were children, their village was raided by a cruel Sky Pirate named Captain Kaos, who then kidnapped them and proceeded to use them as slaves, occasionally taunting them with objects precious to them. They eventually turned on him and left him on an island, taking his ship for themselves.
  • Enemies List: She has one as of "An Eye for an Eye". Even her friends are even on it, though mostly for annoying reasons:
    • Arkayna for flicking her in Zarya's face with a Hair Flip.
    • Em for always apologizing.
    • Piper for blasting so much Pixie Dust that Zarya swallows some.
  • Energy Bow: Her weapon.
  • Gamer Chick: Zarya is shown on multiple occasions to play video games.
  • I Work Alone: This attitude is her Fatal Flaw. Life as a Street Urchin taught Zarya to rely on herself, but now she struggles with being part of a team.
  • Justified Criminal: Formally. Stole food to feed the starving kids of the undercity
  • Knight in Sour Armor: Zarya had a difficult life, had to spend some time as a thief, and generally is morally more flexible than her teammates, being inclined toward vengeance and occasionally theft. But she still has a good heart and genuinely cares about helping people.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Develops an alternate personality in the fifth episode that acts as an agent of vengeance. "Jekyllus and Hydeon" is even mentioned by Mal.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: She's described as "the Robin Hood of Drake Undercity" in her character video, she helps to provide for her fellow orphans along with Piper, and wields an energy bow in combat.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Piper, due to having been her only friend she was abandoned as a child. When she temporarily quits the Mysticons, Piper can barely keep herself together and has repeated flashbacks to their first meeting.
  • Long-Lost Relative: It is revealed in “Twin Stars Unite”, she is Arkayna’s real twin sister.
  • Lovable Rogue: A former Sky Pirate and Street Urchin who survived for a while by stealing... usually from the rich, to then give most of her benefits to the poor.
  • Meaningful Name: The wolf in her surname is an obvious reference to her Mysticon animal, but could also symbolize her toughness and loyalty.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After she unintentionally causes the Pink Skulls to lose the Mysticons' Dragon Disk in "Scourge of the Seven Skies".
  • My Little Panzer: Binky, a plush toy that can act as an explosive upon voice command.
  • Pirate Girl: Once belonged to a Sky Pirate gang called the Pink Skulls before settling in Drake City. She started out shanghaied, but after orchestrating a mutiny with the other kids, Zarya and Kitty became pirates themselves.
  • Tomboy Princess: Zarya is this when she learns that she is Arkayna's sister.
  • Trauma Button: The mere mention of Captain Kaos sends Zarya into a panic attack.
  • True Blue Femininity: Downplayed. She's associated with the colour blue, but has little feminine traits.



    In general 
An order of powerful Mages in charge of mentoring and supporting the Mysticons, as well as to protect Drake City. Unfortunately, they tend to be hard to work with.

  • Be as Unhelpful as Possible: With the obvious exceptions of Malvaron and Doug, they tend to be hard to work with, as they usually insist on doing things their way without listening to what the Mysticons have to say, and often in fact make things worse only to blame it on the Mysticons once things go badly.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In the third arc, all of them but Malvaron, Tazma, Doug and Auntie Yaga get turned by Proxima into the "Spectromancers", becoming slaves which she then uses to make a new Codex.
  • Jerkass: With the exception of Doug and Malvaron, most Astromancers are self-righteous, rather unhelpful, and stubbornly following rules even when this is only causing more problems.
    • Jerkass Has a Point: In "All Hail Necrafa". While refusing to let Arkayna use the Codex to revive the royal family was a dick move, destroying it would have ensured Necrafa couldn't return.
  • Not so Above It All: A Running Gag about them is that they aren't quite as stern and serious as they like to make it appear. They are seen playing trading card games and a Pokémon GO Expy and party following Necrafa's death, for example.

    Nova Terron
Voiced by: Dan Lett

The elderly leader of the Astromancers who decides who the Mysticons' Solon will be. Piper thinks he is cute and has an amazing voice.

  • The Arch Mage: As the "Star Master" of the Astromancers, he is the highest-ranking member of the group, and clearly one of the most powerful.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: They're gigantic.
  • Character Development: Starts out for the most part like an Obstructive Bureaucrat who berates the Mysticons regularly and causes them more problems than he solves. He gradually gets more sympathetic moments as the show goes on. By the time of Three Mysticons and a Baby, he actively helps them get around the restrictions placed by the rest of the council.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Old, constantly scowling, and generally prone to get mad at the Mysticons.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Like most Astromancer, he is grumpy, often interfering with the Mysticons and prone to criticize them, but he does mean well, and is shown to care about them on occasions.
  • Never My Fault: Blames the Mysticons for Necrafa's escape even though he was the one who stopped them from destroying the Codex.
  • Not so Above It All: During one episode, Doug, being asked by the Mysticons to be keep him busy while they attempt to make a new Dragon Disk, introduces him to the Attack of the Apocalypse online game. Turns out Nova Terron is not only very good at this game, he actually loves it, and strives to get the high score.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: He causes almost as many problems as he solves because of his refusal to bend the rules even slightly or admit he's wrong. Unlike most Astromancers, he does get better.
  • Secret-Keeper: He eventually learns Arkayna's double identity in The Prophecy Unleashed, when she reveals it to him so he can understand why she resents him stealing her twin sister.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: He declares the Mysticons criminals in episode 16 even though they've saved the realm (and him personally) multiple times.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He stole Arkayna's twin sister from her family just shortly after they were born because twin princesses were prophesied to doom Gemina by awakening the Spectral Dragon. Some chewing out from Dragon Mage makes him realize what a horrible thing it was to do.

Voiced by: Deven Mack

The first Astromancer we meet, when he saves Arkayna and Emerald from Dreadbane's minions. He later becomes their Solon after Tazma proved to be a traitor.

  • Always Someone Better: Malvaron has much more natural talent for magic than Tazma. She's so resentful of this that she joins Dreadbane.
  • Big Brother Bully: He doesn't get along with his sister Tazma, and taunts her for being less talented than him. She really has it coming, though.
  • The Gift: Is naturally talented in magic, more so than his sister who trains hard.
  • Secret-Keeper: He is the only Astromancer to know the Mysticons' identities, and actively encourages them to keep it that way, due to the rumors about some Astromancers being corrupt.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: As after being freed from the Love's Breath effect, he and Arkayna are disgusted by the fact that they were almost married… somehow. They do become a couple later on.

Voiced by: Michelle Monteith

Malvaron's sister, with whom he has a contentious relationship.

  • Big Bad Wannabe: She clearly wants the Codex for herself, and tries hard to be a deceptive mastermind using Dreadbane to her own ends. However, while she is genuinely smart and a powerful mage, her scheming skills leave a lot to be desired; with the exception of her serving as The Mole to the Astromancer, every single attempt she makes at double-crossing and manipulating other characters end up with her being Out-Gambitted, with even Dreadbane and Kimraw managing to outsmart her at one point. This even gets a Lampshade Hanging by a Mirage of herself in Through the Enemy's Eyes:
    "You let a dumb troll double-cross you, you lose the Codex, and the Mysticons make you look like a fool time and time again. You’ll never be as good as your brother."
  • Cain and Abel: Responds to Malvaron's taunting by trapping his head in a block of ice. When he gets close to learning she's a traitor, she outright tries to kill him.
  • Casting a Shadow: She primarily fight using shadow-themed magic.
  • Darkskinned Blond: Like Malvaron, she has a distinctly dark skin. Unlike him, her hair is white.
  • Driven by Envy: Appears to be the reason behind her betrayal; it's strongly hinted she resents Malvaron for having more natural magic skills than her when she had to get where she is by training and studying hard.
  • Evil Genius: To the Spectral Hand; she is the most skilled in magic among Dreadbane's forces, and an emphasis is placed on her intelligence and knowledge.
  • In the Hood: The pilot introduces her wearing a hood hiding her features, to make her identity a twist.
  • It's All About Me: Clearly wanted the Codex and Spectral Dragon Egg all to herself so she could be more powerful.
  • Karma Houdini: She is the only villain to survive the whole series with no consequences by the time of the Finale, though this remains to be seen in the Graphic Novels and Chapter Books that follow.
  • The Mole: She is the corrupt Astromancer who betrayed her order to Dreadbane.
  • Sibling Rivalry: She does not like her brother Malvaron's taunts, and is chosen instead of him to be the Mysticons' Solon. She later tries to kill him after her alliance with Dreadbane is revealed.
  • The Starscream: She sides with Dreadbane and refers to him as her "liege", but it's rather obvious she wishes to get the Codex and the Dragon Disk for her own agenda. And she most definitely didn't want Necrafa back, judging by her reaction when she finds out about her being Not Quite Dead.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: She doesn't exactly work well as a team with Dreadbane.
  • Token Human: The only human member of Dreadbane's army.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She gets considerably more powerful and effective once she gives up being The Starscream and dedicates herself to serving Necrafa.
  • Villain Has a Point: At the beginning of "Total Eclipse of the Golden Heart", despite all her venomous words and past, she is right to call out Em's lies when learning she lies to her mother about who she is.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's difficult to discuss her in depth without revealing her role in the plot.
  • Weak, but Skilled: According to Malvaron, she's got less natural talent than he does, so she spends a lot of time studying to make up for it.

    Doug Hadderstorm
Voiced by: Doug Hadders

An easygoing cyclops who is friends with Malvaron and the Mysticons.

  • As Himself: His voice actor's name is Doug Hadders.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He holds lightning in a bottle, lava and a dragon lotus from the most dangerous locations in the realm in his closet.
  • Cyclops: his species. Subverts the usual 'dumb brute' characterization by being friendly and intellectual.
  • Informed Ability: Since he technically is part of the Astromancers, this suggest he does have some skills in magic; he rarely ever display them however, and in fact seems rather clumsy whenever given the opportunity.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: He has a eye for decorating, enjoys boy bands like Gnomes 2 Men and owns a Twinkly Mare.

    Auntie Yaga
Voiced by: Lili Francks

Malvaron and Tazma's aunt, who spends her time hopping from one dimension to another.

    Proxima Starfall
Voiced by: Stacey DePass

A young and talented Astromancer under Nova Terron's protection.

  • Badass Bookworm: She's a pretty powerful mage and a top-level Astromancer, capable of rivaling Tazma even after the latter Took a Level in Badass.
  • Bespectacled Cutie: She's a cute, young girl who wears red glasses.
  • Big Bad: Of the third arc.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: To Necrafa, once she turns evil. Necrafa was an ancient Lich Queen and irredeemably evil, while Proxima is a young Astromancer with a sympathetic backstory whose evil was motivated by a combination of corruption and being The Resenter; Necrafa usually was a calm and collected villain with occasional burst of angers, while Proxima is perpetually angry and short-tempered; and while Necrafa kept an iron grasp on servants who were loyal to her either out of fear or genuine devotion (even turning Tazma from The Starscream to Undying Loyalty), Proxima struggles to keep her Vexicons in line. Finally, Necrafa was a Bad Boss who treated her minions like tools and coldly pulled a You Have Outlived Your Usefulness on Dreadbane, whereas Proxima is a Family-Values Villain who apparently genuinely cares about her Vexicons, and goes absolutely livid when they abandon Eartha.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Even after it's revealed she isn't the other royal twin, Arkayna (and to a lesser extent Zarya) keeps treating her like if she was their sister due the time they spent bonding, and insists this changes nothing as far as she is concerned. Unfortunately, all it does is making things worse for Proxima, who only sees this a reminder she isn't really related to them.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She can be spotted in the upped left hand corner in the beginning and end of episode 9 and in the beginning of episode 13
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She is enraged when the Vexicons abandons Eartha on the field, and promptly orders them to go back and recover her:
    "I plucked all of you out of misery. Created you to be a team, a family, a sisterhood of evil. YOU NEVER EVER LEAVE A SISTER BEHIND!"
    • While she wants revenge on the Mysticons, especially Arkeyna, she never wanted to destroy the realm, and tries to abandon the mask when she realizes what it's trying to push her to do, only for Mallory's interference to ruin that and let it control her completely.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She gets corrupted by Necrafa's mask and turns evil.
  • Family-Values Villain: In contrast with Necrafa, Proxima treats her Vexicons like a family, expecting them to care about each other and spend time together during Lotus Night. Makes sense, given her own story of lacking a family.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Proxima is hurt and angry when it is revealed Zarya and not her is the second royal twin, feeling as though her chance for a real family was stolen from her. Necrafa's mask amplifies the emotions and turns her into The Resenter.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Officially turns good once her mask is removed in "Eternal Starshine of the Mage's Mind".
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Due to having grown up as an orphan until she became an Astromancer, Proxima feels isolated. Her resentment is made worse by how she believed she had finally found her family, only to find out it was all a lie. She even acts in a motherly manner to the Vexicons.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Subverted; she is initially stated to be Arkayna's twin sister, but it's later revealed this was a lie to better protect the identity of Zarya, the real twin sister.
  • Meaningful Name: Proxima, as in approximate. She is not the Royal Twin, but was raised in the same orphanage.
  • More than Mind Control: Necrafa's mask doesn't exactly possess her, but rather amplifies her repressed feelings of jealousy and disappointment regarding not being Arkayna's twin sister and twist them into hatred. She starts to realize this in "Monster Hunt" and removes it, resolving to destroy it before it takes her over, but Mallory's meddling results in her being fully possessed by it.
  • Pet the Dog: As noted above, she goes ballistic when the Vexicons abandon Eartha and orders them to recover her. Moreover, in contrast to Mallory, she doesn't call out Eartha for almost committing a Heel–Face Turn, and in fact expresses sympathy for her, blaming the Mysticons for fooling her into thinking she belonged like they did with her.
  • Red Herring: Invoked; Mrs. Sparklebottom intentionally had her pass as the missing royal twin as a way to protect the real one.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: She wears glasses and is a magical prodigy.
  • Teen Genius: Still a teenager, and already much more capable and skilled than most of the full-grown Astromancers seen onscreen.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: In-universe, this is the primary reason for her Start of Darkness; after growing up as an orphan and a nobody, and being raised as an Astromancer, Proxima found out she was the missing Royal Twin, granting her not only a newfound importance, but also a family in the form of a sister who welcomed her with open arms, and with who she genuinely formed a bond- basically exactly what she had always wanted. Then it turned out this was all a lie- her entire story was fabricated, Zarya was the real royal twin, and while Arkayna didn't love her any less, she still was back to being an orphan and a nobody. This is what made her easy to corrupt for Necrafa's mask.
    • When they were younger, Tazma disguised herself as Nova Terron and tricked her into thinking that she'd been given a great honor before mockingky yanking it away.

The Royal Family

    King Darius
Voiced by: Patrick McKenna

  • Morality Pet: Season 2 reveals he might be one of the few people Gawayne genuinely cares about.
  • Royal Rapier: Wields a royal sword.
  • Taken for Granite: Turned to bone by Dreadbane.
  • Wicked Stepmother: Averted; Darius is a good guy and he gets along great with Arkayna. It's his son Gawayne she can't stand.

    Queen Goodfey
Voiced by: Linda Kash

    Gawayne the Great
Voiced by: David Berni

The crowned prince and Arkayna's insufferable stepbrother. After their parents are turned to bone, he is made king, much to his own delight- and to everyone else's dismay.

  • Angst? What Angst?: Is more concerned with partying and enjoying himself than his parent's current state as a bone statue pairing.
    • Eventually subverted in season 2, where it's revealed that, while he enjoys the perks of being king, he does genuinely miss his father deep down.
  • Adipose Rex: Becomes king (temporarily) when his father and stepmother are turned to bone. He is also chubby.
  • Berserk Button: Hates it when the Mysticons are given praise by Drake City instead of him.
  • Big Brother Bully: Takes a great deal of pleasure in inviting everyone in Drake City except Arkayna to his coronation, even going as fas as sending her a note confirm she isn't invited..
  • Brutal Honesty: When Necrafa is back, he immediately takes time to adress the population of Drake City to inform them the guard is taking every measure to protect... him. Everyone else, on the other hand, is doomed.
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: Gawayne complains the entire time the Mysticons are rescuing him.
  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: When he uses his rusty Orcish to realize that he's about to be kidnapped.
  • Fat Bastard: He's severely out of shape and a selfish jerk.
  • Hate Sink: Even in-universe nobody seems to like Gawayne; when he gets kidnapped, Zarya even suggests not going after him. He's mainly around to give the viewer someone to hate while the villains aren't in the picture (and often when they are).
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Knows Orcish, though he's a bit rusty.
    • His feelings for Lateensia the pixie seem pretty genuine. He's crushed when she breaks up with him and begs her to take him back.
    • Season 2 reveal he genuinely cared about his father, and has the same habit of writing him statue letter like Arkayna does to her mother.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: After setting up policies for himself, he falls into one of the pools he commissioned. This is lampshaded, of course.
    Gawayne: Seriously, why are there so many pools here?!
    Serena's Snake: Your "Swim at a Whim" Policy.
  • Hopeless Suitor: He's crazy about a pixie named Lateensia. He thinks they're dating, but it's mostly just him following her around while she either tries to get away from or ignore him. She finally dumps him in "Gems of the Past."
  • It's All About Me: Only cares for himself and no one else; his own parents being turned to bone makes him happy to be crowned the new king, he refuses to give up his magic armor even if this could save the entire city, and when Necrafa comes back, his only concern is to have the entire guard make sure to protect him while blatantly admitting he'll let everyone else die, even going as far as to request they shut down the Dome around Drake City so he can get a tan - even though it's there specifically to protect the population from Necrafa.
  • Jerkass: Most of his screentime is spent trying to explore just how much more of a douche he can be.

Sky Pirates

    Kitty Boon
Voiced by: Katie Griffin

The captain of the Pink Skulls. Zarya's first best friend and girlfriend.

  • Aggressive Categorism: Towards heros when first introduced. Justified though since she felt like no one was their to save her when Khaos destroyed her village. At the same time ironic since she was a hero to Zarya by choosing to get kidnapped to protect her.
  • Anti-Villain: Formally
  • Badass Normal: She is a regular human with no particular magic ability and no other equipment than her whip; yet, she is capable of giving the magic-powered Mysticons a hard time in a fight.
  • Big Eater: In "Skies of Fire" she's seen winning a pizza-eating contest against a male troll much bigger and fatter than her. There are two huge stacks of empty pizza boxes next to them and they appear to have been taking turns eating slices until one party admitted defeat. Kitty even thinks she can fit another slice in her after she's done.
  • Break the Haughty: When she was first introduced, she clearly had an Inferiority Superiority Complex: however in episode 12, after finding out that Zarya was a Mysticon then helping her retrieve her Codex from Dreadbane's lair she finds Dreadbane trying to murder the undercity kids then lets out a Big "NO!": then uses her whip to redirect the meters. This causes her to get taken to Dreadbane's Dungeon until Zarya comes to the rescue. She then returns the favor by recuing Zarya and the other Mysticons at the end of the episode and returns the original Dragon Disk.
  • Broken Bird: See Dark and Troubled Past:
  • Character Development: In her debut, she appeared rather arrogant and didn't hardly care for anyone rather than her crew and herself though this all changes in episode 12 when she finds out that Zarya is a mysticon and sees what Dreadbane is doing to the kids of Drake City and then eventually becomes an ally of the mysticons and later works for the Moon Elves.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Like Zarya, she was kidnapped by Captain Kaos and used as slave on his ship until they turned against him.
  • Dual Wielding: Has two cutlasses.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She is okay with taking the Dragon Disc and tying up Zarya, but breaks down when seeing Dreadbane willing to hurt kids to get the Codex Pieces. Understandable, given her own backstory of being reduced to slavery as a child.
  • Fatal Flaw: Passive-aggressiveness. She often times avoids conflict even when it's necessary.
  • Freudian Excuse: She initially refuses to give a damn about what Dreadbane will do to Drake City because she resents nobody from the city lifting a finger to save her village when Captain Kaos attacked it.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: She is very devoted to her crew and Zarya and would never intentionally hurt her and would also never harm any children.
  • Innocently Insensitive: At times, though usually as a result of Zarya not communicating with her well
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Had one at first, due to being taken in by Captain Khaos, who was implied in episode 18 to have murdered her parents.
  • Justified Criminal: Formally. Most likely wanted the Disk so that she could get paid so she could feed her crew as well as herself.
  • Morality Pet: Zarya pretty much is the only person she cares about outside her own crew. This is what eventually causes her to become an ally of the Mysticons.
  • Neutral No Longer: While she did formally work for Dreadbane, she was not evil and did not support him in trying to help revive Necrafa, nor was she good since she did not feel the need to stop him at first until She witnesses him trying to murder the undercity kids and then officially sides with the Mysticons.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: as mentioned above had a very troubled past and began to think that heroes were useless which caused her to want to betray the mysticons.
  • Pirate Girl: A female pirate captain who also happens to be fairly competent.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: In her first episode; she tricks the Mysticons and helps Dreadbane get his hands on the Dragon Disk, but makes it quite clear she doesn't know nor care what he will do with it; the only reason she did it was for the money.
  • Secret-Keeper: Zarya reveals herself as the Mysticon Ranger to her in order to convince her to help stop Dreadbane.
  • The Captain: Of the Pink Skulls, taking the position after the coup against Captain Kaos. Later becomes an admiral at Zarya's request.
  • Whip It Good: Wields a whip.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: She is against Dreadbane trying to kill the kids in Drake City, and after a Big "NO!", changes the course of the meteors.

    Kasey Boon
Voiced by: Joshua Graham

Kitty's younger brother, fellow member of the Pink Skulls.

  • Heel Realization: After he sees how his actions hurt Em.
  • Honey Trap: A G-rated variety, and a rare male example. He used Emerald's crush on him to trick her into wearing a tracking device that would let them follow the Mysticons. Fortunately, it eventually turns into...
  • Hunk: Repeatedly treated in-universe as attractive, with both Em and Kymraw hitting on him.
  • In Love with the Mark: In subsequent run-ins with the Mysticons, he's deeply sorry for what he did, and comes to love Emerald in earnest. Eventually, this leads to them dating and becoming an Official Couple.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Had no clue that his actions would hurt Em or that he was bothering her by being clingy.
  • Justified Criminal: Formally.
  • No Senseof Personal Space: In episode 37 with Em.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: As with the rest of the Pink Skulls, he wears the appropriate colors.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Aside from having some development by learning to think about Em's feelings, he doesn't have much of a character outside of being her love interest.

The Spectral Hand

Voiced by: Valerie Buhagiar

The infamous Lich-queen of The Undead, Necrafa was defeated years ago by the previous generation of Mysticons. Dreadsbane's quest for the Codex primarily is motivated by a desire to avenge her. Or so it seems; she actually is still alive, just trapped, and he is trying to revive her.

  • Artifact of Doom: The fragment of her mask, which works a lot like the The One Ring, even twisting those not in physical contact, and eventually taking Proxima over completely when he tries to reject it.
  • Back from the Dead: Dreadbane plans to use the Dragon Disk to revive her.
  • Big Bad: For the second arc.
  • The Dreaded: She marked history as such a terrible villain the Astromancers still are reluctant to say her name even thousands of years after her apparent death. When she returns, the sole new of her being back is enough to send all of Drake City in panic.
  • Evil Will Fail: Her final defeat comes when Dreadbane has in his possession the Macguffin that can destroy her, and is ready to hand it over to her on the sole condition she reciprocates his feelings. Being a Bad Boss who despises him, she can't even tell him "I love you" in a convincing manner and, when he understandably hesitates, she just devolves into threatening him and shooting him with magic blasts. Realizing she never loved him, he just drops the Macguffin, allowing the heroes to get it.
  • The Exile: The details of why aren't exactly explained, but "Fear the Spectral Hand" reveals she was an Elven Sorceress exiled by her own people, with her anger over it presumably being what allowed the mask to corrupt her.
  • Facial Markings: Had one under her eye when she was an elf.
  • Game Face: Her Signature Move involves her face distording into a banshee-like mouth to generate a powerful sonic scream.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: A lich queen who tried to conquer the realm.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: She's the ancient villain Dreadbane is trying to revive. Once she is revived, she becomes the new Big Bad.
  • Kick the Dog: Dreadbane remained faithful to her even after her apparent death, working his best to avenge and resurrect her. Once he finally manages to bring her back, she repays such loyalty by blasting him and throwing him in the same prison she was in all that time, on the sole basis he took too long.
    Dreadbane: I. Love. You.
    Necrafa: I love you… not.
  • Killed Off for Real: She is destroyed along with the Spectral Dragon by the end of the second arc, though her Mask survives continues to drive the plot.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Dreadbane had his moments of being serious, but he was overall a Laughably Evil villain with an army ineffectual skeleton mooks who got regularly defeated by the Mysticons with only average difficulty. Necrafa, meanwhile, is The Dreaded, played dead serious, and turns the above mentioned skeleton mooks into genuinely fightening minions upon her arrival.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Well, woman, but her face is constantly concealed by a rather creepy-looking mask, and she most definitely isn't a nice person.
  • Mask of Power: Her mask is an Artifact of Doom, as mentioned above, and is what transformed her from an elven sorceress into a lich.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Not as obvious as Dreadbane, but her name is derived from "necro", the greek word for death.
  • Not Quite Dead: It's revealed in The Astromancer Job she isn't truly dead; she apparently was merely trapped in another dimension, and Dreadbane is trying to free her, which he eventually manages to do in All Hail Necrafa.
  • Our Elves Are Different: "Fear the Spectral Hand" reveals she used to be an elven sorcerer before being transformed into a lich by the mask, a revelation that horrifies Piper.
  • Our Liches Are Different: In her case, she is a thousand-years old, powerful undead elven witch enhanced by an ancient Mask of Power.
  • Posthumous Character: The original Mysticons took her out, apparently at the cost of their own lives. Or so it seems.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was sealed away by the original Mysticons, until Dreadbane brings her back.
  • Speak of the Devil: Even a thousand years later, the Astromancers don't take saying her name lightly.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: When freed by Dreadbane, she beats him down before sending him through the arch.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Was apparently in a relationship with Dreadbane. Any feelings she had for him seem to have soured by when she's released, if she ever did love him.
  • Villainous Legacy: What's left of her supporters drive the main plot.
    • After her defeat, her mask, which predates her by millenia and is a force for an ancient Sealed Evil in a Can, the same one Captain Kaos made a Deal with the Devil withafter Kasey and Zarya marooned him.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Sends Dreadbane into the same portal he had just used to free her, simply because he didn't do it faster.

Voiced by: Deven Mack

Necrafa's Dragon, who survived her defeat by the previous Mysticons and is now trying to avenge her.

  • Accidental Hero: In "Fear the Spectral Hand", he accidentally saves a little kid while trying to defend himself from the tentacles summoned by Mallory. Luckily, the grateful kid's admiration toward him is enough to remind him of his time as a hero and make him complete his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Amnesiac Dissonance: During his brief time as Reginald, he is a kind-hearted, peaceful gardener who plants flowers and acts nicely toward the Mysticons. A stark contrast with the brutish, cruel and fight-happy Dreadbane.
  • Arch-Enemy: Arkayna has a special hatred for him, since he was responsible for turning her parents to bone. As a result, she has a hard time buying into his Easy Amnesia.
  • Back from the Dead: A comment from Queen Goodfrey implies this.
  • Badass Cape: Has one, and is proud of it, as he is offended that one of his soldiers doesn't like it so much.
    Dreadbane: Do you have a problem with my shoulder pads? […] Do you not like my cape? (gets an iffy shrug from the bone soldier) You are either with the cape or against it! (kills the Bone Soldier)
  • Big Bad: The main villain of the series. For the first arc, anyway.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The flashback of Necrafa recruiting him, with her eyes glowing as she approached him, implies that she used magic to influence his mind. It would certainly explain why she doesn't care about him the way he cares about her.
  • Dem Bones: He and his minions are rather skeletal in nature.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He gets sealed away by Necrafa, who promptly takes over as the new Big Bad.
  • The Dragon: Used to be Necrafa's second-in-command.
  • Easy Amnesia: After being betrayed by Necrafa and trapt in Another Dimension, he ends up losing his memory and developing a new identity as Reginald, a peaceful gardener. Unfortunately, his memory eventually comes back.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Cared deeply for Necrafa, and vowed revenge after losing her. Unfortunately for him, she doesn't reciprocate.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: A minor example, but in Episode 12, when the Mysticons don't give up the Codex Pieces, he feels they would not really leave Drake City to die, and decides to give them more time.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: When he finally revives Necrafa, she promptly turns on him and seals him away in the very place she was sealed in.
  • Fallen Hero: "Fear the Spectral Hand" reveals he used to be, as General Bane, a noble human knight who loved Drake City and sought to bring peace, only for Necrafa to corrupt him and convince him to join him.
  • Kill It with Fire: Tazma thinks he has too much of an obsession with burning things to the ground.
  • Large and in Charge: Massive, very muscular, and leading The Undead after Necrafa's apparent demise.
  • Laughably Evil: While a fairly serious villain overall, he occasionally displays comedic moments, such as his constant arguing with Tazma and Large Ham tendencies.
  • Literal-Minded: As Tazma points out, he takes the Codex riddles too literally, while he thinks she doesn't take it literally enough.
  • Mad Love: This turns out to be the nature of his relationship with Necrafa; he does genuinely loves her and serves her with devotion, but she despises him and sees him as little more than a pawn, turning on him without a second thought once he freed her. He eventually realizes how unhealthy this relationship is, and decides to let it go.
  • Names to Run From Really Fast: Dread-Bane isn't exactly a name that inspires trust.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He is Laughably Evil and gets several humiliating defeats against the Mysticons, but you shouldn't forget he was the one who turned Arkayna's parents to bone in the pilot, the Mysticons do have difficulty defeating him in a one-to-one fight, and he does get a few victories over the course of his arc. He also does succeed in bringing back Necrafa.
  • Redemption Equals Death: He finally turns back to good in "Fear the Spectral Hand" after being reminded of his old heroism, only to be mortally wounded by Mallory while trying to protect the Mysticons. He then uses his last remaining strength to undo his spell on Arkayna's parents, causing him to fade away.
  • That Man Is Dead: Inverted; After he Heel–Face Turn, he prefers being referred by his original "General Bane" name rather than Dreadbane.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Was apparently Necrafa's lover.
  • Was Once a Man: A flashback reveals he was once a regular human working for Necrafa, but got turned into his current undead state after her defeat.

    General Tibion
Voiced by: Ron Rubin

Dreadbane's second-in-command.

  • The Ace: Following his first full appearance, Necrafa's forces have more luck.
  • Cool Helmet: Has a goat-like helmet.
  • The Dragon: Second-in-command to Dreadbane. Then to Necrafa once she returns.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Has a non-speaking role in "The Mysticon Kid".
  • Elite Mook: Leads a battalion called the Spectral Hand.
  • Killed Off for Real: Along with the rest of the assembled wraiths, he is wiped out in the destruction of the Spectral Dragon.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Like the rest of the skeleton mooks, Necrafa upgrades him into a much more powerful and intimidating wraith
  • Would Hurt a Child: Has his troops wrangle a baby cave crawler to get a piece of the Codex out of its mouth.

Other Antagonists

    Fatcat Merchant 

  • The Thief: Steals coins from a bearded old man in "Sisters in Arms", only for Piper and Zarya to fleece him back by copying his key and robbing his vault. He sets the cops after them.

Voiced by: Linda Kash

The Troll leader of a biker gang who occasionally gets recruited by the Spectral Hand.

  • All Bikers Are Hell's Angels: Her and her gang basically are your stereotypical biker thugs, only as orcs and trolls.
  • All Trolls Are Different: In her case, she is the muscular and brutish variant, with the added twist she happens to be a biker.
  • An Axe to Grind: Wields a giant axe in battle.
  • The Brute: Fills this function whenever she is working in Dreadbane's team.
  • Combat Pragmatism: Parodied; When Em comes to ask for her help against Necrafa's Spectral Dragon, she agrees on the condition Em can defeat her in a traditional orcish duel. Turns out the rules of this duel can be summarized as "May the dirtiest fighter win".
  • Cool Bike: In her case, it's a sky cycle.
  • Dumb Muscle: Actually subverted, her plan to kidnap Gawanye is actually fairly clever, and she's quick to use any info she gets to her advantage. She also proves cunning enough to double-cross Tazma in All Hail Necrafa.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Played for Laughs; after being defeated by the Mysticons in Quest of the Vexed, she starts re-evaluating her choice of career and decides to reform... only for the Hate Plague to immediately infect her and snap her back to wanting the Mysticons' death.
  • Hulk Speak: Combined with Third-Person Person.
  • Large and in Charge: Larger than any of her orc goons, though not as large as Dreadbane.
  • Only in It for the Money: She's worked with the Spectral Hand, but only for payment (though she does say that she wants Revenge on the Mysticons at one point).
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Downplayed, but despite being a brutish, tough biker with very little feminine or attractive about her, she is, like Doug, a Twinkly Mare fan.

    The Vexicons
Mallory (Bottom), Eartha (Top), Kasha (Left), Willa (Right)

Voiced by: Amy Matysio (Mallory), Bahia Watson (Kasha), Alana Bridgewater (Eartha), Stephany Seki (Willa)
A group of evil female mystic warriors that Proxima creates using he corrupted version of the Codex and Dragon Disk. They serve as her enforcers during the third arc of the series.
  • Animal Motif: Like the Mysticons, they have their own associated animals and bracer attacks.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Upon learning that Arkayna and her friends are the Mysticons, they lash out at Proxima for not telling them sooner.
  • Evil Is Petty: With the exception of Eartha, the Vexicons all behave like immature bullies who enjoy tormenting people for the sake of having fun and frequently end up doing destructive things for the sake of it.
  • Evil Knockoff: They were created by Proxima as counterparts to the Mysticons using a corrupt version of the Codex.
  • Logical Weakness: They have personalities similar to the Mysticons, only with a more Psychopathic Man Child vibe and a strong dose of Evil Is Petty; as a result, they suffer from a very severe lack of discipline, and while they stay loyal to Proxima for the most part, they constantly disobey her, to the point she struggles to keep them in line. Predictably, they end up betraying her.
  • No Honor Among Thieves: They have no loyalty to each other. In "Heart of Stone", they're even willing to abandon Eartha, and they only bother to come back for her because Proxima orders them to.
  • The Psycho Rangers: To the Mysticons.
  • Psychopathic Man Child: Possibly due to being artificial beings who were created recently, the Vexicons are particularly immature in their evil and insanity, behaving like a bunch of teenage bullies who treat spreading fear and destruction like a "party", mock the Mysticons and force Proxima to act like she was their mother, down to actually trying to ground them.


  • Alpha Bitch: She tends to act like the stereotype, being mean-spirited, bossy, and shallow.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Part of why she rebels against Proxima and tries to take power for herself.
  • An Ice Person: She wields ice magic, in contrast to Arkayna's green fire magic.
  • Animal Motif: Snakes, with her bracers summoning an "Ice Serpent".
  • Bald of Evil: Her ice "hair" is destroyed by Eartha in the finale.
  • Cruel Mercy: When Eartha turns on her and has her at her mercy, she tries to play the victim and asks her to just finish the job, knowing Eartha won't have the heart to do it. She is correct... so Eartha just destroys her hair—which, for someone as vain as her, might as well be a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Arkayna; aside from their magics working on opposite elements (respectively Fire and Ice), Arkayna is a sweet thing who can sometimes act a bit arrogant but has a good heart and is responsible, while Mallory acts like a typical Alpha Bitch and is rather cold toward both her teammates and Proxima.
  • Hypocrite: At the end of "Heart of Stone", she has the guts to call out Eartha for almost "betraying the sisterhood" by joining the Mysticons. This coming from the one who started this whole mess by leaving Eartha behind without a single once of remorse.
  • Jerkass: All the Vexicons are petty bullies, but Mallory really takes it to a whole new level.
  • Kick the Dog: "Heart of Stone" reveals she considers Eartha as little more than an animated, replaceable rock.
  • Manipulative Bitch: In "Heart of Stone", she gets Eartha to avert her imminent Heel–Face Turn by faking sadness, playing on Eartha's softer side to convince her to stick with them.
  • The Starscream: Is the most evil of the Vexicons, and once she learns that Proxima does not want total destruction, she tries to take the Mask for herself. In the end, she succeeds.
    Mallory: The Spectral Hand just got a lot more fierce.


  • Anti-Villain: The biggest example the show has of this, to the point of her Heel–Face Turn.
  • The Brute: The tallest, physically strongest member of the Vexicons, and not exactly the smartest of the bunch.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: She's a rock golem and can turn into a boulder.
  • The Dog Bites Back: The other Vexicons were jerks to her, Mallory even using her as a shield and projectile in the finale. When she makes her Heel–Face Turn, she takes the other Vexicons down and destroys Mallory's ice "hair".
  • Evil Counterpart: To Emerald; both are the most physically-oriented members of their respective teams and have a penchant for honor. Moreover, similar to how Em usually is the calmest, nicest member of her team, Eartha tends to act less mean-spirited than her fellow Vexicons and is something of a Noble Demon.
  • Golem: She's an Earth Golem, which in this universe are a species at odds with dwarves.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Finally switches sides in the finale, when she refuses to harm the unborn dragon eggs.
  • Mythical Motifs: The Basilisk is her bracer animal.
  • Nature Lover: It's revealed in "Monster Hunt" she loves nature.
  • Noble Demon: She is by far the least mean-spirited of the Vexicons, displaying genuine concern for her teammates and a sense of honor. Deconstructed in episode "Heart of Stone", were she is left behind by the Vexicons and the Mysticons want to make her a new heart made of good after her old heart damage. She make it clear that she like being evil, and would rather die than suffer what essentially is a Heel–Face Brainwashing. And even though she show genuine goodness when she saves Halite and Ferrus from being crushed by the mine's rockfall, her noble traits cause her to choose to go back to the Vexicons out of a misplaced loyalty to them. Reconstruction In the final episodes were her noble traits cause her to turn again the Vexicons and reform.
  • Pet the Dog: She stops running from the mob of angry dwarves attacking her to shield Halite and Ferrus from being crushed by the mine's rockfall.
  • Punny Name: She's made of living rock and is named Eartha.
  • Redemption Rejection: When the Mysticons take Eartha to Jewel of the North to make her a new heart full go goodness, Eartha made it clear she like being evil and would rather die. She had second thoughts when Arkayna point out that her sisters abandoned her, the Mysticons defended her from the dwarfs and she saves Halite and Ferrus from being crushed by the mine's rockfall. When Emerald decide to to give her a choice on to accept her new heart and be good it look like she choose to be good. Sadly her sisters appear and Mallory manipulates her into rejecting the heart and rejoining her sisters. However, the ending of the episode hints Em's kindness has made a lasting impression on Eartha. She finally does make a Heel–Face Turn in the finale, with her wording hinting that she'd had misgivings for a while.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Her Heel–Face Turn in the series finale is largely prompted by how she cannot bring herself to destroy the dragon eggs that the Mysticons were trying to age up to defeat the Spectral Hand.


  • Animal Motif: Feline, with her bracer summoning a panther.
  • Cat Girl: She's part cat, contrasting Zarya's wolf theme.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Zarya; both are ranger-like fighter who rely on speed and agility rather than brute strength. In addition, she is constantly arguing with Willa, whereas Zarya and Piper are close friends.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She appears to be easily irritable, often getting into brutal arguments with Willa.
  • In the Hood: Wears a hood to go with her thief-like design.
  • Not Quite Flight: Her skates can hover over the ground but not actually fly.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Being part-cat, she shares felines' weird obsession with running after red dots - something Zarya is very easily able to use against her.
  • Wolverine Claws: She wields a set of these.


  • Animal Motif: Bats.
  • Catchphrase: "Quicker than a flicker!" whenever using her ability to teleport.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Piper; both are hyperactive and eccentric CloudCuckooLanders, but Piper is cheerful and kind-hearted, whereas Willa is cruel, violently insane, and enjoy scaring people or wreaking havoc For the Evulz.
  • The Fair Folk: She's an Imp.
  • Insistent Terminology: She an Imp, not a fairy.
  • Shock and Awe: Gets tased by Citrine Goldenbraid in "Total Eclipse of the Golden Heart".
  • Teleport Spam: Her primary fighting style consists in using teleportation to dodge attacks and turn them against opponents.
  • Villain Teleportation: Her ability to teleport frequently is used by her sisters as a meant to do a quick retreat at the end of their missions.
