"Now I understand I shouldn't have eaten that green stuff in that goat."

Sköll is the wolf white spirit, and former chaser of the sun. Iki is the name given to his mortal form/reincarnation. They have completely different personalities, and Iki doesn't know Sköll exists. The picture shows Iki becoming Sköll.

  • Adorkable: Iki, depending on who you're talking to.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Iki is very easily distracted.
  • Big Eater: Iki likes his food.
  • Berserk Button: Seven trying to kill Raigho in front of Iki enrages him and awakens Sköll.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Sköll does this, signaling he's gone insane.
  • God Was My Co Pilot: The main pack, with the exception of Raigho, did not know about Sköll. They all appear to have seen Sköll in the latest pages for the first time.
  • Happily Adopted: Iki is shown to be adopted in the first 20 or so pages.
  • Identity Amnesia: Iki knows nothing of his past as a god, failing to even recognize his own brother. It's self inflicted. Sköll doesn't want Iki to know. He chose to lock his own memories away so that he could live his life as a normal mortal wolf.
  • Idiot Hero: Iki is not the brightest.

The black spirit wolf. Chaser of the moon and the brother to Skoll.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He is currently trying to save the world, although he is willing to kill to do so.
  • Hellhound: His true form is evocative of a Hellhound, though it's not clear if he actually is one or not.

The alpha male of the main pack. He was tasked by Hati to bring Iki to him.
  • Aura Vision: The first thing he sees after being resurrected is Sköll's true from and presumably Jera's soul.
  • Berserk Button: Do NOT ever impersonate a black or white spirit if you want to live.
  • Back from the Dead: Sköll brings him back to life after Seven kills him. Sköll's insane cackling would suggest he Came Back Wrong.
  • Jerkass: He's still a sympathetic character, having reasons for doing what he does, but he is still probably the most disliked character of the comic.
  • Long-Lost Relative A hidden page implies he is Hati's brother.
  • Retcon: Raigho's face markings have changed slightly since the comic began.
  • Rugged Scar: Gets a badass scar after being healed. The scar even glows.
  • Super-Persistent Predator Raigho doesn't stop attacking the human Seven after he misunderstands and thinks she is impersonating a god like figure. Even after she gorges out his eye.

The aggressive alpha female of the main pack.

A shy, timid wolf. He leaves Raigho's pack, but returns.
  • Big "NO!": He lets one out after Othala gets shot.
  • Humans Are Cthulhu: He interprets a human with a gun on a horse as a two-headed elk with a voice like thunder.
  • Shrinking Violet: Is very meek. Raigho behavior towards him does not help matters.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Where the Hell is Gebo during Raigho and Seven's fight and the scenes afterward? Gebo is seen howling to summon the pack. Bizarrely, after that he completely vanishes for a while. It's even spawned a In-Joke in the fandom that he flew away. He probably just ran away off screen, but the joke is funner.

Gebo's uncle. He's shown an interest in taking over the main pack.

The only surviving (blood related) child of Jera and Raigho.

     Othala and her pack 
Othala is the sole leader of her pack. Her pack's main source of food is sheep and other live stock, a fact that leads to conflict with Raigho.

     Albert and Seven 
The main humans of the comic. They are seeking the white spirit wolf, in hopes of saving the human race by putting his spirit in a human body to replace the lost human white spirit.

     Huginn and Muninn 
Two ravens that are friends and servants of Hati.
  • Physical God: Muninn is in charge of memories. What Huginn is in charge of has not been revealed, though in the mythology they're from Huginn's name means "thought", so presumably that's what he's in charge of, just as Muninn, whose name means "memory", is in charge of memories.
  • Say My Name: Hugin said Munin's name after the former got blasted by a spell Sköll cast.

The only survivor of Othala's pack besides Gebo and Fehu, and Love Interest of Iki.

     Askr and Embla 
The human white and black spirits.
  • Cessation of Existence: This is what happened to Askr after she was devoured by the dragons' black and white spirits — her soul simply ceased to be.
  • Eaten Alive: Askr was eaten alive by a two headed dragon.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Askr's death means certain doom to the human race, as humanity will no longer be able to produce children. As this will mean the loss of the human black spirit as well, it means that the concept the human sprits oversee — morality — will also be lost. As all species go extinct as well when their "sibling" species dies out, this means that wolves will follow humanity into oblivion, costing the world their black and white spirits and thus the motion of the sun and moon. The cain of events set off by Askr's death has spelled the doom of the world.
  • Gender Flip: Askr is male in Norse Mythology, and is shown male in a in-universe artwork appearing in one page, but is shown female in concept art. Word of God did state that each time they are reincarnated they may or may not change gender, so Askr is male in some of his/her lives and female in others like all white spirits.

     The white spirit snow leopard  
Caused a avalanche that resulted in the death of many people and dogs.
  • Ambiguous Gender: It's never revealed what gender it's current incarnation is, but like all white spirits it's gender can change upon reincarnation.
  • Cats Are Mean: It causes trouble for a group of sledders, seemingly out of pure spite.
  • Elemental Powers: It summoned a storm on a whim.
  • Fantastic Racism: Refers to humans as "wretched apes".
  • Light Is Not Good: It is very... malevolently territorial at the very least.

     The white and black spirit dragons 
The colored spirits of the dragons. They despise humanity for wiping their species out in the past, and are responsible for the disappearance of the human white spirit.
