In that case they will be listed in the folder for their respective plot. If a character has appeared in multiple plots, their entry will be in the folder for the first one that they were in.

  • Badass Bookworm
  • Brains and Brawn: She's the Brains while Jeran is the Brawn.

  • The Dragon: To Tura-Kepek.
  • Eaten Alive: Her fate courtesy of Moltenus.




     Hannah and the Ice Caves 

  • Action Girl: She's an adventurer and explorer.
  • Ascended Extra: She started off with her own Flash game and a two-part Neopedia article about her adventure, which were both high quality and more than most Neopets characters got, but nothing that implied there would be anything more to her. Then they threw her into a more serious plot...
  • Badass Boast: At the beginning of the Ice Caves comic, she sings about her adventures in a tavern.
    They call me Hannah the brave, Hannah the quick / I'll get you the gems and be out in a tick / Pirates and monsters are no match for me / When they see Hannah coming, they all turn and flee!
  • The Hero: Of Hannah and the Ice Caves.
  • Fountain of Expies: Many later plot protagonists borrowed traits from her.
  • Married at Sea: At the end of Curse of Maraqua, she is seen aboard a ship marrying Kanrik.
  • Scars are Forever: Even after Taelia removes its evil magic, Hannah is informed that the Mark of Ta-Kutep will remain with her forever.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: The Mark of Ta-Kutep, which seems to be slowly killing her. Taelia is able to heal her in the end, however.

The current leader of the Thieves Guild. He took over upon defeating the former leader, Galem Darkhand. He used to be a lover of Masila, though now it's been heavily hinted that he's in a relationship with Hannah.
  • Badass Cape: He has a dark purple cloak.
  • Back for the Dead: He returns for Neopets' 20th anniversary event, only to get poisoned and possibly killed at the end of it.
  • The Cameo: Makes two in The Faerie's Ruin.
  • Gentleman Thief: He is this.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Masila betrayed him, he joined Hannah's side.
  • Implied Love Interest: There is surprisingly a lot of Hannah/Kanrik Ship Tease post Ice Caves. It's not fully clear if they are an Official Couple or if someone on TNT just really likes the pairing, but the amount is staggering to the point where it's technically canon. In fact, the only real room for ambiguity is the fact that TNT hasn't officially confirmed it as of yet.
    • The start of Curse of Maraqua opens with pirates crashing a wedding. One shot shows the bride and groom in the background, and, while they're only shown from the back, they look conspicuously familiar. Either they're just look-a-likes or Hannah and Kanrik decided to get hitched.
    • Kanrik has a line in the Obelisk event that implies he's 'busy' spending time with Hannah.
    "What do you mean, what am I doing? I'm working, I'm— one moment Hannah!— very busy."
    • Editorial 587 has Hanso directly reference the Kanrik/Hannah, Jazan/Nabile, and Hanso/Brynn ships, only to be silenced as "Neopets is not a dating site."
    • The December 23rd, 2022 Advent Calendar has a shot of Hannah and Kanrik sharing a Held Gaze near the fireplace. To make things better, one of the items for that day was all but outright stated to be a love letter from Kanrik to Hannah.
  • Irony: He is a Gelert, a species usually known for being heroic and loyal, but he is a thief and a betrayer, albeit one that eventually turns good.
  • Klingon Promotion: Becomes leader of the Thieves Guild by killing Galem.
  • Kubrick Stare: See the picture on the right? He doesn't really look like someone you want to let near your precious Faerie Queen Doll...
  • Lovable Rogue: He can be very charming and charismatic.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Initially. He tells Hannah a sob story about his sister being sick to convince her to lead him to a lost tomb, where the cure supposedly could be found. In reality, he was on a mission to retrieve an ancient coffin for Galem.
  • Reformed, but Not Tamed: Although he helps Hannah, he continues his thieving ways and remains the leader of the Thieves' Guild. Seems old habits die hard.
  • Thieves' Guild: He's the leader of Neopia's Thieves Guild.

A scheming Acara who was supposedly the lover of Galem, but her true feelings were for Kanrik. However, that didn't stop her from betraying him.

Galem Darkhand
The former leader of the Thieves Guild. He led an attack on the Bori in the Ice Caves. Masila and Kanrik plotted his death, but when that failed, Galem attempted an alliance with the Bringer of Night, only to be betrayed by him as well. Galem lost a fight with Kanrik in the Ice Caves and it was heavily implied that he was killed.
  • Blatant Burglar: Out of all the thieves, his is the outfit (complete with mask) that screams this the most.
  • Cool Mask: He wears one.
  • Killed Off for Real: It is assumed that Kanrik ended up killing him.
  • No Honor Among Thieves: Lampshaded by the flavour text of his TCG card: "They say there is honour among thieves. There was, until HE arrived."
  • Outlaw Couple: With Masila, though she is feigning love for him.
  • Rugged Scar: He has three parallel scars on his mouth.


A small Bori who befriended Hannah.

The Bringer of Night

An ancient Moehog who once waged war against the Bori tribe. They froze themselves in ice to escape him, and in the meantime he was laid to rest in a tomb in the Lost Desert. He was freed by the Thieves Guild and once again attacked the Bori.

The Keeper of Time

The leader of the Bori tribe who watched over them while they were frozen for their protection.

     Curse of Maraqua 

Captain Garin
  • Anti-Hero: He helped to save Maraqua, but still he's a pirate with little remorse for theft.
  • The Captain: of the Black Pawkeet.
  • Disney Death: In the Curse of Maraqua plot, he is thrown overboard and presumed dead but comes back to life.
  • The Hero: of the Curse of Maraqua plot.
  • The Leader: of his crew.
  • Lovable Rogue: He's on the side of good, but refuses to give up his life of piracy.
  • Magical Accessory: His seaweed necklace, which allows him to breathe underwater.
  • Oblivious to Love: Doesn't ever pick up Isca's rather obvious crush on him, being more focused on the life of a pirate
  • Pirate: What he is.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: In a bar on Scurvy Island, he tells his friend Talak about the Maraquans rebuilding their city. One of Scarblade's crewmembers happens to be there and overhears the whole thing.


  • Badass in Distress: Spends a good chunk of the story being held captive by the Drenched.
  • Number Two: Is Garin's first mate, being his best friend since childhood.

Captain Scarblade

King Kelpbeard
  • Adipose Rex: Like Skarl and Hagan, Kelpbeard is a pretty portly patriarch.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Back when Maraqua was first destroyed, King Kelpbeard looked much different, and was known as King Koi instead of his actual name.
  • Fantastic Racism: Initially he did not trust surface-dwellers, and would never allow them in his kingdom.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He participates in the battle of Maraqua, and ends up defeating Scarblade in one-on-one combat.

  • Did Not Get the Guy: Though it's implied that she has romantic feelings for Garin, he seems oblivious and chooses not to remain in Maraqua when she asks him to.
  • Hopeless Suitor: It is hinted that she has fallen in love with Garin, but he never seems to realize it.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: She is essentially an Aisha mermaid.
  • Plucky Girl: She defies the king and leaves Maraqua to warn others about the visions she has.
  • Psychic Powers: Can see the future in her dreams.

The sister of Isca, who was banished merely because the psychic visions she gets are about bad things happening.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: She is feared by the Maraquans, who believe she is intentionally bringing misfortune to them, when in reality she cannot control her visions.
  • Bearer of Bad News: She has the ability to see bad things that will happen in the future through her nightmares, and is ostracized because of this.
  • Blessed with Suck: She has psychic abilities, but can only foresee misfortune, which makes her very unpopular in comparison with her sister, who sees the exact opposite.
  • Broken Bird: Punished for her negative Psychic Powers, which are beyond her control.
  • But Now I Must Go: Because of her help, she is invited back to Maraqua at the end of the story. She declines, though, preferring to live alone.
  • The Cassandra: No one in Maraqua wants to believe her prophecies, let alone hear them, which is why she was banished.
  • Ice Queen: Considering the way she was treated by the Maraquans, who can blame her?
  • Psychic Powers: Like her sister, she can see the future in her dreams, but only bad things.
  • The Un-Favourite: So much so that she was made to leave Maraqua because of her abilities while her sister was praised for hers.

    The Lost Desert Plot 

Princess Amira
  • The High Queen: Of Sakhmet.
  • Politically-Active Princess: As shown in the Desert Diplomacy event, she takes an active part in the politics of Sakhmet.
  • Princesses Rule: She hasn't changed her title since inheriting the throne out of respect for her late father.
  • Rebellious Princess: She has had many suitors, but she always tells them that she will never marry anyone.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Initially, Princess Vyssa was supposed to be the only child of King Coltzan III and her Neopedia article (released prior to the Lost Desert Plot) thus describes her as being heir to his throne. Princess Amira was created later, written in as the eldest who was away due to official business when her father was murdered. Subsequently she has inherited the throne rather than Vyssa.

  • Action Girl: She fights alongside Tormund to help free Neopia from the evil magic of the Darkest Faerie.
  • Cute Witch: She is cute and has magical powers.
  • Parental Abandonment: Neither of Roberta's parents are ever shown and it's unclear where they are. Though one of them is a sibling of King Hagan, it's unlikely that her father is King Skarl (the only known sibling of Hagan), as no such connection between them has ever been established.

     The Tale of Woe 

Sophie the Swamp Witch.
  • Broken Bird: Her grumpy personality likely stems from the fact that as a little girl she was forced to flee into the woods after her brother unwittingly brought a curse upon their hometown that transformed its citizens into monsters. She lived in isolation and wasn't reunited with her family for years afterward.
  • But Now I Must Go: After curing Neovia, she tells her parents and siblings that as much as she loves them, she has decided to return to her shack in the woods, because the town just isn't home to her anymore.
  • Crazy Cat Lady: Downplayed. She's female and owns several Meowclopses, which are sort of like cats.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She is a loner, lives in the Haunted Woods, and is, of course, a witch, but she is not evil. In fact she cured the Neovian Curse.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has plenty of moments.
    Neovian Citizen: Welcome back to Neovia!

  • Bookworm:
    "Pah! Read one book at a time? Watch me take on four!"

  • Teen Genius: He looks to be in his teens and is very smart.

The father of Bruno, Reginald, and Sophie.

The mother of Bruno, Reginald, and Sophie.

A beautiful young Neovian lady with whom Bruno falls in unrequited love. The fact that she already has an extremely possessive boyfriend is likely the main reason she doesn't return his affection.


Lily's possessive boyfriend.

  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Is jealous of anyone interacting with Lily.

A young Usul girl who learns about the curse on Neovia and helps Bruno and Sophie to break it.

Mayor Thumbert
The mayor of Neovia, who summoned the Spirit of Slumber to help free the town from the monstrous effects of Mr. Krawley's potion. When the curse was eventually lifted, he blamed Bruno for everything that happened and attacked he and Sophie. He hulked out and became the Final Boss of the plot.

A dashing Lutari adventurer who wants to explore as much of Neopia as he can. He joined the group led by Professor Hugo Fairweather in searching for an island described in the journal of Mad Tongue Murphy. Later he and Clara Chatham discovered the city of Moltara.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist
  • Adventurer Outfit: He wears one.
  • Bold Explorer: His goal is to travel through all of Neopia.
  • Continuity Nod: When Clara announces that they've reached the Boat Rental Stand, he says "I believe they prefer the term 'ship'." This is because Rourke was so insistent that others call the SS Primella a ship instead of a boat.

Lilian Fairweather
The daughter of Professor Fairweather, who found the tablet that helped translate Mad Tongue Murphy's journal.

Professor Hugo Fairweather
An archeolinguist and expert of ancient lore who is determined to find an island mentioned in an old journal. He is mocked by his peers, who believe the island is nothing but fantasy.
  • Absent-Minded Professor: Is he ever!
  • All of the Other Reindeer: His search for the lost island causes him to be ridiculed by his peers, who believe it to be nonsense.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He is seen as this by others, and they may be right... at least to some extent.

  • Papa Wolf: He is very protective of his daughter, and is outraged when Captain Rourke suggests that they leave the island without waiting for she and Roxton to return.

An orphan boy who is found to have stowed away on the SS Primella. He ends up tagging along on the trip to the lost isle as a result.

Captain Rourke
  • The Captain: Of the SS Primella.
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    "You're not exactly filling me with confidence here, Professor."
  • Defrosting Ice King: Initially he's grouchy and cynical, but he ends up having a growing soft spot for the orphaned Scrap.
  • The Eeyore: He is bitter and pessimistic.
  • Hates Being Touched:
    Roxton: Cheer up, old chap! Where's your sense of adventure?
    Rourke: You touch me again, and you'll find out.
  • Jerkass: Very much one.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: When the ship crashes on the lost isle, he is right about their first priority being to fix it. Otherwise they'd have no way to get home and be stuck on an uncharted island forever.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As shown by the grudging affection he has for Scrap.
  • Lack of Empathy: He's ready to leave the lost isle without Lilian and Roxton, who haven't returned yet, and says as much to Lilian's father.

  • The Snark Knight: He's always snarky and critical of everyone around him.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: He believes he is.

    Commander Valka: In words we can understand, please.
  • Suddenly Speaking: He has a cameo in The Return of Dr. Sloth where he actually talks, explaining what Kreludite is. This is lampshaded by Cylara, who says "Gee, you sure talk a lot."
  • The Voiceless: He never says a word... at least, not in Journey to the Lost Isle (see above).

     Altador Mini-Plot 


Old Man Withers

  • Control Freak: He is the club president of every club in Altador except the Astronomy Club, and even that is a club he attempts to take over. He is also the only member of the clubs he controls.

  • Jerkass: Rudely turns away potential members from every club they try to join.
  • Shout-Out: To the stock culprit name from Scooby-Doo, even saying You Meddling Kids when he's exposed as the Astronomy Club leader.

Captain Tuan

  • The Atoner: He at least had the good graces to apologize to Hoban after the incident.
  • Berserk Button: Do not insult his cooking.
  • Butt-Monkey: Every time a user tries to use his cooking pot at Culinary Concoctions, it explodes in his face. A successful recipe has yet to be found.
  • Depending on the Writer: Most of the time, his cooking is described as terrible, but in some panels of the Cyodrake's Gaze plot comic, the other crewmembers are shown eating it happily and with gusto. Maybe they were just really hungry that day.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Shoving Hoban overboard in the middle of a raging thunderstorm for insulting his cooking was a little extreme.
  • Lethal Chef: The other crewmembers seem to think so, especially Hoban. He may not be entirely wrong, given Linae's side comment about a particularly bad anchovy casserole.
    • One of the prizes given out by the 2016 Advent Calendar was a bucket of unidentifiable green goo with the description "Well, someone had to eat Bonju's cooking, right?"
  • Ultimate Job Security: One has to wonder why he's still the Gaze's cook if nobody likes his food.

  • Berserk Button: Don't call him a "bad omen".
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's aggressive and short-tempered, but is a competent ship's navigator, all things considered. He hand-wrote an entire map book by himself.
  • Butt-Monkey: In two Advent Calendar animations, he gets accidentally thrown overboard by Captain Tuan and drenched in Bonju's cooking.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Doesn't like Bonju's cooking.
    Item description of Hoban's Leftovers: It's pretty much full. He barely touched the meal, after all.
    Item description of Anger Management for Navigators (a book): Rule #1 - always eat the chef's meals, even if it tastes like cardboard.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Averted. Most Aishas always have their eyes closed, but Hoban's are always open in the comics to give him a wider range of facial expressions.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: He doesn't seem to get along with the other crewmembers. He's first seen threatening to sail them into a storm during an argument, Linae thinks he's a bad omen because of the previous threat, Anshu is not happy that he won't make a detour to stop for medical supplies, Bonju shoves him overboard for insulting his cooking, and Kentari calls him a lazy bum (though not to his face). That said, all of the above happened during a thunderstorm where everyone was in a bad mood, so we haven't seen how they get along with him normally. And they did recruit the rest of Neopia to search for him when he went missing, and didn't give up until he was found.
  • Jerkass: He seems to be rather grumpy and temperamental, easily getting into arguments.
  • The Napoleon: He's fairly short, as well as short-tempered.
  • Older Than They Look: According to his Neopedia article, he's thirty.
  • Signature Headgear: He wears a little pointed cap with green and brown stripes and holes for his ears, which was distributed as a prize to players after the plot.
  • Spare Body Parts: He's an Aisha and has a second pair of ears mounted on stalks, which incidentally would be very helpful in his job navigating the seas.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Unlike most of the other Gaze crewmembers, he did not reappear in Shenkuu following the plot and it is unknown what he is doing currently. He did reappear in the Neopets Puzzle Adventure video game and made a few appearances on Better Than You, so it's not like he vanished entirely.


  • The Medic: The Gaze's medic, and sells medicine for players to purchase at his shop in Shenkuu.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: He's a Ruki, an insect-like Neopet, with a long white mustache and beard.

  • Cats Are Mean: After the thunderstorm began, she was quick to accuse Hoban of having started it (to be fair, he did threaten to sail them into one earlier). However, she seems to be fairly amicable in all other appearances.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She's not a fan of Bonju's cooking, either. "That anchovy casserole really did a number on my—"
  • Panthera Awesome: She is a Kougra.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She's the only female member of the Gaze and is a pink Kougra.



  • Breakout Character: He starred in his own flash game, Revel Roundup.
  • Out of Focus: Didn't get much attention in the plot, because he was locked in the storeroom during the thunderstorm and couldn't give evidence about Hoban's disappearance. He later got his own shop, selling foods in Shenkuu, and a game was released where players could play as him.

Professor Lambert
A Gnorbu scholar who teaches at Brightvale University and is the leader of the group of Neopian intellectuals known as the Seekers.
  • Absent-Minded Professor: He gives off strong vibes of this. One line of dialogue has him calling for the Doglefoxes of War to be unleashed, then sheepishly realising he forgot to bring them.

  • Cool Uncle: To Katie. She loves visiting him in Brightvale.

Before the six factions reached the obelisk, several spirits emerged and challenged them to fight. Essentially these spirits were personifications of the Neopian versions of the Seven Deadly Sins. Every faction faced one that represented their worst fear. In the end they were revealed to have been a test from the Oracle, the ancient and wise spirit who lived within the obelisk.

The personification of pride who menaced the Sway at the end of the War of the Obelisk.

The personification of greed who menaced the Thieves' Guild at the end of the War of the Obelisk.

The personification of envy who menaced the Order of the Red Erisim at the end of the War of the Obelisk.

The personification of wrath who menaced the Brute Squad at the end of the War of the Obelisk.

The personification of Apathy who menaced the Seekers at the end of the War of the Obelisk.

The personification of death who menaced the Awakened at the end of the War of the Obelisk.

The Oracle
  • Ambiguously Evil: The Oracle's true motives have never been made clear. She was introduced at the end of the War of the Obelisk as a seemingly benevolent ancient spirit. However, her actions are rather questionable. All she has done so far is to involve the six factions who originally fought for the right to open the Obelisk in perpetual battles simply for her amusement. She grants boons to the winning faction that last for one week, until it's time for yet another battle. It seems doubtful that a spirit who delights in watching frequent violence (and has multiple groups of powerful Neopians under her spell, constantly striving to gain her favour) could really mean well.
  • The Omniscient: Apparently she has vast wisdom, but has not yet shared her knowledge.
  • Seers: She can see the past and future.

Afterward it was revealed he was a child monster, and was safely returned to his parents at their home in the mountains.
  • Cute Monster: As it turns out, he's just a little kid monster who wandered away from home and not a real threat.

  • The Good King: King Altador rules a land that was among the most cherished in Neopia before its disappearance, and continues to be adored long after its rediscovery.

Her actual villainous acts are never specified, and the only faerie who might know about them hasn't spilled. It's believed that many unfortunate events in Neopia are her doing, but this has never been confirmed.
  • Noodle Incident: Why is she enemies with Illusen?
  • Nothing Is Scarier: The citizens of Neopia are terrified of her, not because of what she's done, but because of the fact that she hasn't actually done anything evil yet, which is very abnormal for a dark faerie as powerful as her.
  • Pet the Dog: As nasty as she is, she will reward you handsomely for completing her quests. Whatever else Jhudora is, she's not a liar.

A Lupe bounty hunter who traps Faeries in bottles and then sells them.
  • Bounty Hunter: His targets are the Faeries.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: He is asked to help the petrified Faeries by a young Ixi during The Faeries' Ruin, but when the situation is explained to him and he sees for himself what happened, he is thrilled rather than concerned. Then he goes home to free the Faeries he has bottled (knowing that once they're released, they too will be turned to stone).
  • Freudian Excuse: He was abandoned by his family as a child. After crawling through the woods, hungry and thirsty, he came across some Dark Faeries whom he asked to aid him. Instead, they cruelly mocked him and threw stones and twigs at him. That's why he now hates all Faeries.

  • Rugged Scar: He has one over his eye.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Before turning against him, MAGAX was Nox's minion.

Hubrid Nox
A Chia warlock who is the Arch-Enemy of MAGAX. He was Killed Off for Real during The Faeries' Ruin plot, so all subsequent appearances are of his ghost.

     Mystery Island 

Ghost Lupe
  • Our Ghosts Are Different
  • Grey-and-Gray Morality: He seems like a villain, but can do good in Random Events.
  • Revenge: He seeks revenge for his death, and likely that of his bride as well.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: The Ghost Lupe was in life a knight named Sylva. He died attempting to rescue his bride from the natives of Mystery Island. Apparently, she did not survive either.

Jhuidah the Island Faerie

Tiki Tack Man
A humanoid man who runs the Tombola on Mystery Island, as well as a souvenir shop. He is never seen without his mask, and as there are (supposedly) no humans in Neopia, it's unclear what he is.
  • Ambiguously Brown
  • Ambiguously Human: While his facial features are obscured, physically there's nothing to suggest that he's anything other than a human man. However, this would make him an exception to the rule that there are no human characters in Neopia (the odd caricatured staff member notwithstanding) and theories have ranged from him being a male faerie (also unprecedented) to a very humanoid Neopet such as a Grundo or a Mynci.
  • The Artifact: His (apparent) humanity is a bit of remnant Early-Installment Weirdness from a time when some of the site's NPCs were human; while most were changed to known pet species, the Tiki Tack Man remained as-is.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: He is always barefoot.
  • The Faceless: His face is never shown.
  • Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist: Subverted, as he is not a tourist.

Techo Master
A wise old Techo who runs the Mystery Island Training School. He collects codestones as payment, and then places them in his garden.

Tropical Food Shopkeeper
Tropical fruits and fishy delights straight from the isle of wonders!!
A Techo who sells the player the tropical fruits native to Mystery Island and more.
  • Do You Want to Haggle?: Like all of the other shopkeepers, you may haggle prices with him, but you may anger him and he can temporarily ban you from his store.
  • Meaningful Name: As his official name is the Tropical Food Shopkeeper and doesn't have a conventional name, it falls under this.
  • Witch Doctor: While not exactly one, the original filename for his image was titled "withdoctor.gif".

One of the four guardians of the Mystery Island Training School. He has trained extensively with the Techo Master, and as a result has become a skilled fighter.

     Neopia Central 

Dr Death
The overseer of the Neopian Pound
  • Dark Is Not Evil: While the room he works in is dark with lots of spiders in, and his name is Dr Death, he actually takes good care of the ownerless pets.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: According to his backstory on Neopedia, he was a kind-hearted Animal Lover who ended up in his current role at the pound after earning his medical degree and setting out to make a positive difference in the world. Years of watching innocent Neopets abandoned by their owners made him the embittered soul he is today.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Nice Guy: Despite his grumpy exterior, he is actually this.
  • Younger than They Look: Neopedia lists his age as simply "[n]ot anywhere near as old as he looks."

Soup Faerie

A kindly Faerie who runs the Soup Kitchen.

  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Her real name is not known.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her usual outfit includes a pink shirt.
  • Supreme Chef: Her soup tastes so good that rich Neopians sometimes try to pass themselves off as poor to get a taste of it.
  • Taken for Granite: Like the other Faeries, she was turned to stone for the duration of The Faeries' Ruin.
  • Winged Humanoid: Of course she has wings, she is a Faerie, after all.

     Roo Island 

King Roo

  • A Dog Named "Dog": His name is King Roo, and he's a Blumaroo.
  • Lonely at the Top: He was not exactly lonely, but quite bored before Dice-a-Roo was invented.

Aristotle A. Avinroo
The self-proclaimed Games Master, more commonly referred to by his initials, AAA. He created Daily Dare, a competition where he challenges Neopians to beat his high scores at games.

Abigail Avinroo
AAA's sister, who is more down-to-earth than he is. It was her idea to have her crush Chadley help out with Daily Dare while her brother was away, but she soon regretted it upon becoming disillusioned with him and annoyed by his vanity.


AAA and Abigail's cousin who runs the NC Mall portions of Daily Dare and Games Master Challenge events.

Chadrick Woolsworth Tuffington IV
Also known as Chadley. This Zafara is a popular and egotistical classmate of AAA. His smile was rated as Neopia's Most Charming by the Neopian Times for three years running. He hosted Daily Dare while AAA was away at camp.
  • Brainless Beauty: In spite of his Neopedia article saying his IQ is "brilliant, just like his smile", he really doesn't seem all that bright. For one thing, he's blissfully unaware that other characters are sick of him.

  • Driven by Envy: His reason for capturing AAA and Abigail and forcing them to play games for days on end.
  • Green and Mean: He's a green Blumaroo and is a villain.
  • Meaningful Name: From the word 'ruthless'.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He forces a 14-year-old boy and his 11-year-old sister to play games unceasingly, and then sends them into a game that they would need to escape if they were to be released.


Princess Lunara
The eldest daughter of the Emperor of Shenkuu. She was sad and lonely, in spite of the efforts of her Petpet Kazeriu to cheer her up. Her sister, Terrana, thought pretending to be kidnapped would be a good way to bring some excitement to her life.

Princess Terrana
The youngest daughter of the Emperor of Shenkuu, who aspires to be the greatest warrior of all. To prove it, she attempts to scale the mountain with her grappling hook.

  • We Help the Helpless: She is said to wander Terror Mountain finding Neopets who got lost in the snow and saving them from freezing to death.


The Snowager
  • An Ice Person: He is a huge ice wyrm that can fire icy blasts.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Hence why he sleeps in a big cave.
  • Berserk Button: If he catches you stealing his treasure, hope you like an icy blast to the face.
  • Dragon Hoard: He guards a gigantic pile of treasure in his cave, which users can try to steal from when he's asleep.
  • Riddle for the Ages: Where did all the treasure in his cave come from??
  • Promoted to Playable: Received his own Flash game in 2010, Wrath of the Snowager, where the player controls him trying to get his loot back from a thieving Chia.

Chia Thief

  • Too Dumb to Live: Instead of doing something sensible when the Snowager comes after him like hide in a building or leave Terror Mountain, he just tries to evade him by running around and around in circles.




  • Action Girl: "Just because Grarrg is the Battle Master doesn't mean I don't know how to put up a fight. Why do you think Grarrg is second in command anyway?"
  • The Artifact: Originally described as a "Tyrannian Kyrii", Kyriis could not be painted Tyrannian at the time. Even though they have since become able to, they look nothing like her, and her appearance remains unchanged.


  • Anthropomorphic Shift: His Neopedia entry and the Omelette page both still use his old design, a moldy-green Lupe with tusks and stegosaurus-like plates. More recent images of him instead show a hulking Wolf Man with those features.

  • Meaningful Name: Not much is known about the Tyrannian language, but "Tyranu" is one of the few words that have been confirmed; it means "high", and Tyran-Far is one of the most esteemed warriors in Tyrannia (or, translated, The Highlands).

     Virtupets Space Station

Down For Maintenance Pteri

A minor but much-hated face who shows up whenever the servers are offline.
  • Ascended Extra: He started as just a normal pet image on the "down for maintenance" page. He became his own character when he was added as a Random Event and Battledome challenger at the suggestion of someone writing to the Neopian Times editorial.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: His villainous schtick is that he attacks the website itself. Or at least, he claims to.
  • Good All Along: The Down For Maintenance screen changed in April 2022 due to the death of Adobe Flash. In the new one, it turns out he's not the one who causes the outages; he fights off the meepits who are.
  • Hate Sink: The reason he was added as a challenger in the first place is because users frustrated with site outages wanted someone to take their anger out on.
  • No Name Given: He's always just been the "Down For Maintenance Pteri".
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Originally played straight, but later Downplayed. He always has piercing red eyes, and acts sinister, but as threatening as his presence is, he's been Good All Along.
