     Kajortoq and co. 
Our main characters, ladies, gentlemen, and spirits.


Often called "Kitty", Kajortoq is the Team Mom, a vixen often seen in fancy dresses.
  • Character Tic: When Kitty is especially angry and frustrated by something around her, it makes her ear twitch.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: She may not be a trickster, but as one jackalope salesman learned the hard way in episode 21, you don't try to pull a fast one on her. It's also implied she is responsible for the state of Amaroq's tail.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Not to the same level as Calamity, but she does pull out a few barbs when Huey, Calamity and Ichabod are being screw-ups.
    Huey: (shaking the rocks tied to his tail) I'm gonna go weird [Quetzalcoatl] out!
    Kitty: That's a safe bet.
  • Full-Name Ultimatum: Generally uses nicknames, but pulls out Huey's full name while scolding him for picking on Quetzalcoatl.
  • Only Sane Man: Seems to be her attitude for a lot of the nonsense the others get into.
  • Promotion to Parent: Started when she was the only one who could keep Corn from screaming as a baby. Continued for the whole community after Murder sacrificed herself to seal away the ick. She's younger than Ichabod, Vinkle, and Paula and the same age as Huey, by Word of God, but still reins all of them in like one would expect a strict mother to.
  • Southern Belle: Kitty really fits the look.
  • The Stoic: With occasional bouts of Not So Stoic when her buttons are pushed enough, such as when Huey didn't weed her garden as instructed. Holds her demeanor when abducted by Angel, but snarls upon catching sight of Amaroq.
  • Team Mom: See Promotion to Parent above.
  • Textile Work Is Feminine: Kitty spins her own thread in Simple Melody, makes clothing for Calamity and Corn in Winter and sews the quilt needed for the ritual to remove the Black Ick. The extent that she has magic herself is probably related to this, as she was the one who sewed the poppies that keep Calamity and Corn from crashing in cold weather onto their coats.
    • She also made saddle blankets that would bless the jackalopes wearing them with the qualities of the one she traded them for in "You Knew Who I Was When You Picked Me Up," whose effects are shown in "A Good Deal". And in "Alien" she's shown improvising a string figure to open a magical barrier.


Also known as "Calamity", she's the tomboy of the group and possesses Tlaloc's Tuning Fork.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Goofs off at every chance she gets but is also frequently shows perceptive skills bordering on Bat Deduction and Hyper-Awareness
  • Combat Pragmatist: In "Creep in the Night", she runs into Charles, who starts monologuing at her. He gets a punch in the stomach and a kick in the head for his trouble.
  • Deadpan Snarker: To possibly the greatest extent of the series.
    McCoy Chief: I knew you weren't on the level!
    Calamity: yawns, Oh yeah, I'll rule you all with an iron fork.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Generally plays the Foolish to Ichabod's Responsible. For example, in the beginning of Conduct Ichabod is toiling over Tlaloc's notes while Calamity is playing ball.
  • Houseboat Hero: Lives in a home built on a boat, moored on the river next to Ichabod's treehouse.
  • The Lancer: Her headstrong nature makes her this to whomever is trying to act as leader at the moment, usually Kitty or Ichabod.
  • Making a Splash: Tlaloc's Fork allows her to control water.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: Averted. She does not have breasts, at least not in her spirit form. This allowed her to run around topless in prequel comics or wearing only a gauzy drape in the story that begins with Little Bunny Foo Foo.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Icky. He's the studious and neurotic older brother. She's the rebellious and laid back younger sister.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Icky and Huey.


An albino rattlesnake, he's an extremely shy shaman, or at least the closest to a shaman the group has. Also called "Corn".
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Being the youngest, and constantly afraid of everything - he's 4-5 years younger than the next youngest (Calamity) and around a decade younger than most of the others. Also qualifies as The Cutie.
  • Blood Magic: His blood can act as an antivenom for his own bites, as shown in episode 20.
  • Break the Cutie: In addition to the Cornered Rattlesnake trope, back when he was a child, he was the very last one on the countryside to be afflicted by the Black Tezcatlipoca, leaving him all alone while his friends were cursed right in front of him, before it closed in on him. When the sealing finally takes effect, he's bawling into Kitty's arms.
  • Cornered Rattlesnake: Literally, when he bites Calamity in his panic at being kidnapped.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: He can sense Charles's presence.
  • Heroic Albino: He's the only one of the group that can undo the Black Tezcatlipoca's Sleeping Sickness, and is obviously one of the good guys.
  • Irony: He is constantly afraid of everything, but the one time he isn't scared is when someone is actively trying to scare him. Huey's attempt to scare Corn in "Coyote and the Rattlesnake" makes Corn laugh.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: He has this reaction when he bites Charles in episode 20.
  • Nervous Wreck: He looks perpetually freaked out, has frequent night terrors and can't handle being around large groups of people. Amaroq's attempt to kidnap him caused him to have a fullblown panic attack, complete with Tears of Fear, in which he started attacking everything that moved, including Calamity.
  • The Quiet One: He rarely willingly interacts with anyone other than Kitty, though at one point he did get a chuckle out of Huey's attempt to "get back at him" for spooking him.
    Calamity: I s'pose you have to practice this 'conversation' thing sometime.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Presumably at least part of the reason they call him "Corn". Granted, the only time he's seen to eat he requests a flower he can put on his nose and lick, but he lives next to a cornfield, is seen tending said field, and has many baskets of the stuff inside his hut.


Called "Huey", he's a mischief-maker, befitting his Animal Stereotype.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Subverted in a rather tragic sense. Huey is out to be friends with everyone. This even includes Amaroq and McCoy. Unfortunately, no matter what he does, the paranoid grudge continues and the cast have to deal with the fallout on a regular basis.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: To a point. He's not exactly bright, but he's not stupid either.
  • Dowsing Device: Huey can use Tlaloc's Tuning Fork to find things by holding it by its tines, like a divining rod.
  • Eye Spy: He can remove his eyes and look over roofs by tossing one into the air, or just juggle them.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Not so much by way of machinery, but he's a gifted craftsman. He builds a huge puppet within hours in the woods, and has a complex hanging mobile for storing spider's silk in his home.
  • Genius Ditz: He's the best tracker of the group, and has a knack for working with his hands, but is also irresponsible, easily distracted, and prone to making questionable decisions.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: Has stolen several pumpkins and scarecrows over the course of the arc leading up to Winkle's affliction with the Black Tezcatlipoca.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Calamity and Icky.
  • Those Wily Coyotes: Based off of the Aztec Huehuecoyotl, with elements of the Navajo Coyote mixed into his character.


A crane, he lacks the sweet southern drawl of his fellows and is extremely superstitious.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: He's been crushing hard on Wrip, but she's already in a relationship with Vinkle.
    Paula: The little love triangle is kinda adorable
    Kitty: It ain't a love triangle. It's a love line segment, with one very ambitious point.
  • Arboreal Abode: Icky lives in an elaborate treehouse complete with observatory. While visiting Hollow, Icky meets a childhood friend who reveals he heard a "silly rumor" to this effect.
  • Big Brother Instinct: As seen in the prequel comic, Icky's priority will always be Calamity. Acts of devotion to his little sister include carrying her on his back while traveling, doing everything in his power to make her comfortable when she becomes corrupted by the black ick, and standing between her and an Eldritch Abomination with every intent of fighting it to the end.
    • In Brom Bones, when he hears Calamity yelling in surprise and then something about a knife, he leaps forward to try to defend her, only to realize that she was yelling because Huey decided to carve her pumpkin without waiting for her to set it down.
  • The Cassandra: Everyone of Ichabod's superstitions/predictions so far has come true, albeit not always in an obvious way.
    • In 012, a bird flies in through his window ("one for sorrow"), and it is from this point on that everything starts going awry.
    • In 013, he sneezes on Miquiztli (the 6th trecana of the tonalpohualli), which means danger. It turns out that Hatfield had captured a bunch of chupacabras that they were coing to release into McCoy to decimate their jackalope population. Instead the chupacabras are unleashed in Hatfield, leading to the destruction of a building and presumably a few injuries.
    • In 022, a cockroach appears in his wig, spelling illness. In the next episode, Ichabod is incapacitated by the Black Tezcatlipoca.
  • The Dutiful Son: When the Spirits get to Hollow, Ichabod goes to visit with his mother, despite being distracted and upset by their mission. This is compared to his sister Calamity, who when he announced he was going to do this, declared she was going off to visit her friends and she would be around sometime later.
  • The Eeyore: Easily the most dour character in the series, a pessimist who is often obsessed with bad omens
    Ichabod: (Coming back to consciousness with Brom Bones looming over him, flatly): This is how I die.
  • Heroic Albino: His human form fits the look, to a point that he was encouraged as a child to wear a wig to fit social norms.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Even with his crush, he still goes out of his way to find the solution when Vinkle gets afflicted with the Sleeping Sickness.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can be arrogant, entitled, and condescending, but is also loyal to his friends and willing to set it all aside to do what's necessary.
  • The Nicknamer: Inverted. In a series where everyone has names that are unwieldly mouthfuls to English speakers and almost everyone has a nickname they go by instead, Ichabod almost always refers to everyone by their full, proper name.
  • Odd Friendship: With Huey. By all means, their polar opposite personalities should drive a wedge through them. For some reason, though, Icky is able to understand Huey better than most of the cast and recognize him for the talented and sometimes insightful person he is. Best illustrated in a one off comic strip where Icky's birds eye perspective allows him to see Huey's sculpture as more than just a pile of rocks.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Despite the fact that everyone regards Ichabod as crazy for his superstitions, so far everything he's concluded from perceived "omens" has been right, or at least partly right. He concluded something terrible was going to happen because a bird flew in though his window. While Calamity and Paula regarded this as crazy, if Ichabod hadn't gone out trying to discover what was going to go wrong, it would have taken them much longer to realize that Kitty had been kidnapped by Angel. When he saw an "ominous" cloud over Hatfield, he stated that something bad was about to happen to the village, and came to the conclusion that McCoy was going to attack Hatfield. He was wrong, but not entirely: Hatfield had been capturing chupacabra to unleash on McCoy, a decidedly immoral and underhanded trick.
  • Shock and Awe: In Conduct, he tries to use Tlaloc's Tuning Fork to scare off the chupacabra attacking the villagers, and summons lightning.
  • The Smart Guy: He fits the role, at least, helping to find how to cure Vinkle, and points out to Huey and Calamity that they'd be doing more good for the world if they put their talents to more practical use.
  • Stealth Pun: Not exactly stealthy, but, again, Ichabod Crane.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Huey and Calamity.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Has taken on a human form briefly, usually so that he can simultaneously have hands and feet. The Hollow arc indicates this is a standard spirit ability, but most of them only do it in Hollow.


A bear-like individual, Paula is, well, the Big Guy of the group, mostly due to her friendship with Kitty.
  • Action Girl: While No Evil isn't exactly an action series, when something violent does need to be done, Paula steps in - in Three for a Death she swats her way through the undead in Mictlan Wood, and some McCoy villagers are not soon going to forget their encounter with her fists.
  • Beary Friendly: She's a bit on the jovial side, and doesn't really get angry all that much, contrasting with Kitty's tense demeanor toward the antics of their more mischievous charges.
  • Big Fun: Has the bulkiest build of the characters and is also one of the cheeriest.
  • The Big Guy: Fitting whom she's based off of, she's the largest of the group, and looks to be the strongest.
  • Canada, Eh?: Has a Canadian accent, complete with ending multiple sentences with 'eh?', loves ice hockey (taking on an entire team and winning in Hollow Victory), and is generally friendly.
  • Double Take: Her reaction to Kitty telling her of Huey trying to get back at Corn for scaring him.
  • Rule 63: She's based a bit off of Paul Bunyan, complete with a big blue ox.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Paula, the huge lumberjack, is the Tomboy. Kitty, the Southern belle, is the Girly Girl. A young Paula tried to push Kitty to be more tomboyish in Judgment; it worked so poorly that in contemporary episodes, Paula helps Kitty create the quilt in "Wrip an' Vinkle" despite previously being dismissive of stereotypically feminine hobbies.
    Paula: (to Kitty) Logic has no place in this war! Learn to punch things!


The rabbit Wrip is, like Huey, a trickster of sorts, albeit one whom, in her own words, "is only good at getting people to do things". She's in a relationship with Vinkle, the tailless cat.
  • Alchemy Is Magic: Her all-purpose shapeshifting requires use of little vials which she is seen making in some episodes (A Simple Melody, Worry People).
  • Con Men Hate Guns: Wrip is a charming Guile Hero who in her own words is only good at getting other people to do things. When invited by Calamity to help beat up bandits that had stolen Hatfield Village's food stores, Wrip demurred, saying "That sorta thing don't end well for me."
  • Guile Hero: Uses cunning and deception to solve her problems, relying on other people for the heavy lifting (such as Calamity in Little Bunny Foo Foo).
  • Master of Illusion: Her potions produce illusions for "shapeshifting", or storytelling.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Even moreso than most of the spirits, her real name, Mahtigwess, is only mentioned in "Mahtigwess and Lusifee".
  • Rascally Rabbit
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Much more varied than Ichabod's example, to say the least.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: She pokes this at herself in her distress over Vinkle's affliction, thinking that she's not really good at doing things herself, instead getting others to perform tasks for her.


A lynx spirit, and Wrip's partner. He's a quiet sort.
  • Decomposite Character: Of Rip Van Winkle, along with Wrip. He fulfills the actual story, falling into a deep sleep under the influence of the Black Ick. Thankfully, it doesn't last for twenty years.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: In his original story from Algonquin myth, he stalks the rabbit Mahtigwess with murderous intent. In this version, he and Mahtigwess, better known as Wrip, are a couple.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Like Wrip, he is only referred to as Lusifee in one episode.
  • Super Speed: Downplayed and might not even to the full extent of this trope, but at least nobody has ever beaten him in a race. The reason Ichabod won theirs is due to the Black Tezcatlipoca.
    • Given the tale in Mahtigwess and Lusifee, there is one whom may have beaten him, give or take some "creative license": Wrip, aka "Mahtigwess".


The Black Tezcatlipoca

Less a being and more of a dark force, its influence causes much of the trouble plaguing the land, both when the protagonists were children and in the present day.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: The Ick is, at heart, a twisted take on the virtue of peace. It isn't killing people because it wants them to die, exactly; it's killing people to make them peaceful.
  • Cats Are Mean: In And the Raven Brought Fire, its main body took the form of a massive black jaguar.
  • Dark Is Evil: Oh so much.
  • Forced Sleep: A "Sleeping Sickness" afflicts whatever it touches.
  • The Plague: In addition to the above forced sleep, whatever plant life it touches withers, like, say, a bunch of grapes squeezed dry. It also physically spreads out, visible to see.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: And the can is leaking!


A human living in Mictlan Wood.
  • The Chosen One: The Tezcatlipoca choose their wielders, and Charles claims to be the Black's. That he hasn't been afflicted by the sleeping sickness may be evidence of this.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: Charles seems to really enjoy wielding the power of the Black Ick, if his rampage on Hollow in "Hollow Victory" and his enthusiasm in "Broken Hand" is anything to go by.
  • Enfant Terrible: His age is not stated but seems to be somewhere in the 10-12 years old range. He blends in with a group of children from McCoy village, and claims to play with children from both.
  • Evil Gloating: Although unfortunately for him, Calamity does not wait for smug speeches to finish before starting to fight.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Averted in that he doesn't grasp this when he can't undo the sleeping spell he put on Angel's friend. He simply believes he needs "all the pieces" to control the power properly.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He can be very nice and sweet when it serves his purpose. It just doesn't serve his purpose often.
  • Jerkass: Charles is not one of those villains who you come to respect for their virtue despite their antagonistic nature. He's more along the lines of a smug little shit who treats everyone around him like dirt and shows basically no evidence that he cares about anyone but himself.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Friends call him Charles. You can call him Black Bart.
  • Pride: His main problem. He's convinced he has more control over the situation than he actually does, and when he finds Calamity alone in the woods, he opts to give a smug little speech instead of just calling on the Black Tezcatlipoca. He gets a punch in the stomach and a couple of kicks in the head for his trouble.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: He is actively seeking out the power of the Black Tezcatlipoca.


Formerly a friend of the good guys, Amaroq is a wolf with a grudge against Kitty and a rivalry against Huey, currently helping out Charles.
  • The Bully: Was apparently this to Huey and Hatfield, appointing himself to be "The Spirit of McCoy".
  • Enemy Mine: During the events depicted in And The Raven Brought Fire, he actually tried to save Huey from the plague by pushing him up a tree. After the sealing, though, he went back to being a jerk to the coyote, according to Calamity.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He helps Charles pursue the Black Tezcatlipoca, but repeatedly objects to Charles's general assholery on the way there. When Charles gets Xochiquetzal's necklace in "Broken Hand" and proves more interested in playing with his power than keeping his promise to save Ichabod, Amaroq leaves him there and goes to have a word with the marshal.
  • Evil Counterpart: Starts out playing this role to Huey, before pivoting more to parallel Kitty - she's the Team Mom of the protagonists, he's the Team Dad of the antagonists.
  • Evil Is Bigger: He absolutely towers over the main cast (barring Paula) by at least several feet.
  • Noodle Incident: The details aren't given, but Kitty of all characters ended up managing to get Amaroq to "go away" and stop bullying Huey. It involved fishing, according to Calamity.
  • Pet the Dog: When Charles uses the Black Tezcatlipoca on one of Angel's dolls, Amaroq tells him to leave them be. Then there's most of "Dangerous Host" and his actions in "Broken Hand".
  • Red Right Hand: His tail is absolutely mangled mess.
  • Team Dad: Hinted at with his first Pet the Dog moment, then brought into sharp relief in "Dangerous Host", where he takes it on himself to set some boundaries for Charles and even tells him to go to his room! He does this in a manner befitting of a giant Dad: he just sits on Charles until he agrees to do as he says.
    Amaroq: No more goin' out commandin' dark abysses without permission.
    • He even refers to Charles as "his kid" when looking for him in "Broken Hand".

     Xipe Totec & The Three Monkeys 

Xipe Totec

Also known as "Murder". Crow spirit and wielder of the Red Tezcatlipoca, which permanently burned her once beautiful feathers with its flames. Gave her life years before the main plot in order to seal the Black Tezcatlipoca and save the world.
  • Big Good: The closest thing the series has to one.
  • The Comically Serious: Easily the sanest of the cast during Judgement, the eccentricities of Ichibod and Xochipilli manage to exasperate her to very humorous ends.
  • Good Is Not Soft: A noble spirit and very protective of those in her charge. However, she is not above testing mere children in an attempt to find a wielder for the Blue Tezcatlipoca.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Gave her life to seal away the ick. Tried to give her life to stop the Red Tezcatlipoca from destroying the village she was protecting. Xoxhiquetzal gets in an argument with her over how necessary her martyrdom really is to the cause.
  • Meaningful Name: A gathering of crows is called a 'murder'.
  • Names to Run Away From: Also, they call her 'Murder', a name that suggests a personality with a certain level of... intensity.

All Three Monkeys


  • Blind Musician: Gave up his sight to seal away the Black Tezcatlipoca.
  • Eye Scream: When he is found in Direction, he is in a solid block of Black Ick, having had his blindfold removed. He is frozen in mid-scream, with the Black Ick flowing out of his eyes


  • Heroic Sacrifice: Twice, actually. Chooses to be sealed away when Charles promises to save Ichabod when he gets the power of the Black Ick. Unfortunately, Charles is kind of an asshole.
  • Mystical Waif: She has the look in human form.
  • The Speechless: Gave up her voice to save everyone from the Black Tezcatlipoca. Because magic in this setting is musical in origin, she does magic through her mandolin.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Evades Charles, Amaroq and Angel while traveling through Mictlan Wood by turning into a cloud of butterflies.
  • Weaponized Teleportation: In Hollow Victory, she ends Charles's rampage by using her magic to send him back to Mictlan Wood.


  • Deaf Composer: As a result of the contract to seal away the Black Tezcatlipoca.
  • Lethal Chef: In his defence, his ingredients were selected based on "can they survive the Black Tezcatlipoca" rather than anything more aesthetically pleasing.
    Kitty: Makes sense that food that's hard ta eat is also hard ta kill.
  • Reading Lips: Can't do it. Whenever someone says something around him and it's not translated into sign language, he cheerfully reminds them that he cannot hear them.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: In And The Raven Brought Fire he was shirtless. When he appears again in Soft Child and Direction, he had at least found something to cover his torso.

     Other Characters 

Angel/Ozma Angeline

A little patchwork girl who lives in Mictlan Woods.
  • All There in the Manual: Her full name comes from another work of Betsy Lee's, the webcomic Brother Swan, which appears to be set far after the events of No Evil.
  • Creepy Child / Creepy Doll: She is a strange little doll-girl who wanders around bringing things made of bones to life.
  • Marionette Master: She can invoke life into things made of bones, she calls them her "puppets". She was the one who brought Brom Bones to life after Huey and Calamity built him.
  • Token Good Teammate: She seems to be allied with Charles and Amaroq, but she tries to get Kitty to be Charles' mother because she is worried about him doing bad things.

Brom Bones

Originally built by Huey and Calamity out of stolen scarecrows and a found chupacabra skeleton with a jack-o-lantern for a head, in order to scare Wrip for spurning Ichabod's advances, he was brought to life by Angel.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: A magical variation, his first action after coming to life was to attack Calamity, Huey and Ichabod, only stopping when Angel makes herself apparent to him again.
  • Dem Bones: Brom is mostly made from bones, held together with bits of Huey's stolen scarecrows.
  • Pumpkin Person: His head is a jack-o-lantern, lit by bio-luminescent catapillars.
  • Scary Scarecrows: The other main component of his makeup. He's also very intimidating, and a pretty decent figher as well.

Villagers from Hatfield and McCoy

Like the feuding families they are named for, the citizens of Hatfield and McCoy hate and distrust each other, constantly paranoid about the other's plots.
  • Cain and Abel: Like Cain and Abel, Hatfield and McCoy are produce farmers and livestock ranchers, respectively. They also hate each other and try to lash out at every opportunity.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Hatfield captured a bunch of chupacabra with the intent of unleashing them on the McCoy ranches. Huey, when he finds this out, spoils the plan by letting the chupacabra out.
    Huey (distressed): I didn't want my village to be as bad as McCoy!
  • Properly Paranoid: Chances are, they actually are plotting something against the other village.
  • Small Town Rivalry: Very much so.

Villagers from Hollow

  • Fantastic Racism: A variation; the Industrial Men, a group which came to Hollow to study the Tezcatlipoca Mirror when it resided there, believes that spirits are just humans that have the ability to change shape, so the spirits maintain a human form in Hollow 'to be nice', as Calamity puts it.
  • Historical-Domain Character: The Marshall has the first name, skin colour, job and impressive facial hair of Bass Reeves.
  • Honest John's Dealership: The jackalope salesman who tried to pass off an unruly beast eating the fence as "his best animal" when Kitty was trading with him.
  • The Sheriff: Bass, the Marshall of Hollow. Seems to be trying to be a Reasonable Authority Figure, but it's also clear that he and Calamity have some sort of contentious history.


A powerful spirit, now deceased. Broke the Tezcatlipoca Mirror to end its discord, only to unleash several new and interesting problems on the world. Also noted for his handwriting, which was terrible.

How well does it match the trope?
