    Julie Magilligan
Julie Magilligan

"The power of friendship cures light wounds!"

Julie is the protagonist of the story. The story begins with Julie working as a waitress for a bar in Huckleton called "The Wayside". Then one night, she gets a prophetic dream from a powerful shrouded figure she affectionately calls "The Palm Tree Ghost". The figure explains to her that she will save the world by getting the pendant and collecting the broken magicant pieces. How she will save the world with them will probably have to do with battling the Souballo Empire and using the Magicant's power to fix other problems.

    Angelika Magilligan
Angelika Magilligan

"I just USE the spells. I don't know anything about them!"

Angelika is Julie's fifteen-year-old sister. She bumps into Julie right after Julie quits her job at the bar and decides to join up with the quest. Angelika doesn't seem to care too much about Julie's mission and is only in it for the gold and to help keep her big sister safe. Angelika is very different from her sister, in both personality and the skills she uses.

  • Bare Your Midriff: She wore a magic chain shirt that didn't for awhile. When she gets her new costume from her cloak of Charisma, she loses the midriff.
  • Black Mage: To complement Julie's friendlier type of magic.
  • Black Magician Girl: Has the personality and powerful offensive magic.
  • Blade on a Stick: Angelika's weapon of choice is a spear, though she had a Morningstar for awhile.
  • Book Dumb: It's revealed Angelika doesn't know much of anything of the spells she uses.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: The comic isn't a Dom Com but all the bratty self-centered traits are there. She also has nothing but contempt for her father, who blamed her for her mother's death.
  • Character Development: She's getting a bit less self-centered and rude as the story progresses. She's also warming up to Emily, though this may be due to coming through for her in combat and bonding over mutual disdain for Rocky.
  • Chaotic Neutral: ultimately confirmed when we see her in the afterlife invoked
  • The Chick: Subverted.
  • Cute Witch
  • Deadpan Snarker: Duels with Rocky for this title.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": If you call her Angie, she'll cut your hair off and force-feed it to you.
  • Epic Flail: Angelika briefly used a magic morningstar she won in a combat, then switched back to a magic spear. In the Magicant Temple she loses that spear, and is now using another morningstar she found in a chest.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Averted as Angelika isn't evil and doesn't become evil with the costume switch, but Norveg lampshades this trope.
  • Fanservice Pack: Zigzagged. Angelika's first outfit showed a lot of skin, but her second one was more conservative and dark, the third one has her in a skimpy rat costume that looks a lot like Mizune's teen form.
  • Girlish Pigtails: And she holds them in place with tiny skulls. She loses them when she gets her costume change.
  • Hates Being Touched: Jordie hugs her and she states this to him.
  • Ice Queen: Uses snarkiness and humor to keep others at a distance.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Angelika is supposed to be very, very attractive but this drawing style doesn't really show it.
  • Irrational Hatred: For Emily when Angelika first met her, and much later when Emily joins the team. It may be due to Emily being a wizard, or it may be due to Rocky really liking Emily.
  • It's All About Me: One of the reasons she annoys those around her.
  • Jerkass: She's a bit of a pain in the butt, especially in Book 1.
  • Missing Mom: Angelika never knew her mother as she died when Angelika was a baby.
  • Noodle Incident: It worries Norveg that she won't tell him what happened to her last familiar, though she might have been trolling him.
  • Not That Kind of Mage: She's a sorcerer, not a wizard.
  • Paint It Black: Subverted and spoofed. When she put on a Cloak of Charisma she gets a Darker and Edgier costume like this.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her new darker look has this.
  • Short Tank: Very much so.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: The wild, irresponsible half.
  • Skewed Priorities: She doesn't show much anger toward Coumadin and his wraiths for nearly killing her, until she finds out he looted her gear.
  • Tsundere: Type A.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Angelika isn't too shaken up about not bathing if it can't be helped.
  • Youngest Child Wins: Played with. Angelika has powers of her own, but Julie is the big heroine of the story.

Outsmarted by a rodent.

"You'll never get very far if you behave like a simpleton and never listen to reason."

Norveg is Angelika's new rat familiar. Despite numerous references, no-one will tell him what happened to her previous familiar. The rat and the blonde girl met in huckleton and have decided to travel together since then.

    Lenny Magilligan
Lenny Magilligan

"It figures some random bad guy knows more about this quest than we do..."

Lenny is Julie's husband, and for those who don't know, he took her last name. He has been dragged into the adventure by his idealistic but silly wife, but he doesn't mind too much. He originally worked as a mercenary and met Julie when hired to guard her carriage. The two fell in love and eventually wed, though details on their story are still fuzzy. In the group, he is a fighter and is the group's meat shield and skullbasher now.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Much darker-skinned humans than Lenny have been seen. Medlii the harpy commented on his caramel appearance when she fought the group. Lenny even got angry with her when he heard her singing a Confederate anthem.
  • Badass Normal: He's got no magic powers, only kickass fighting skills.
  • Bald, Black Leader Guy: Subverted. His wife is the leader of this group.
  • Big Fancy Sword: His weapon of choice is a Bastard Sword.
  • Bi the Way: He's been in relationships with men and has rather suggestive dreams about Roy Greenhilt.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Subverted. He's actually quite calm and laid back, to the point of being a bit passive.
  • Character Development: Since Pauline's death, Lenny's been in the spotlight a bit more and has not only had more jokes to deliver, but has had some chance to grow a bit ballsier.
  • Chekhov's Skill: More than once he's shown off his knowledge of rocks and minerals.
  • Closer to Earth: Usually quite rational and sensible compared to his idealistic wife.
  • Gentle Giant: The strongest member of the group physically, but very laid back and gentle when not battling enemies.
  • Happily Married: To Julie, the group's bard and leader.
  • Henpecked Husband: He frequently bows to Julie's wishes.
  • Nice Guy: He's laid back, soft and unassuming.
  • Satellite Character: For Julie in Book 1. He develops more during Book 2.
  • Straight Man: Has few jokes himself, but often sets up other group member's funny moments.
  • True Neutralinvoked: In book 1. Word of God stated he has become Neutral Good as of getting to Level 7.

    Rocky Jones
Rocky Jones

"I'm gonna sell the swag. Don't worry, I won't steal ALL of it..."

Rocky's a sullen, unpleasant red haired teenage boy. He is also the group's rogue, specializing in picking the locks, disarming the traps, and shanking dumbass opponents from behind. Originally he worked for his father's flower shop, but got into trouble with the law over his flower selling techniques. While on the road somewhere along the line he met Angelika. The two decided to work together conning people out of their money and shiny possessions. While on their travels they met Julie and Lenny right outside of The Wayside, and now the four work together. Rocky may or may not regret this decision.

  • Anti-Hero: Rocky's not above using indecent tactics to achieve a decent goal.
  • Back Stab: Rocky's sneak attacks can be pretty damaging.
  • Badass Normal: No magic powers, just underhanded (but effective) fighting skills.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Rocky is a rogue after all. He uses all sorts of "dirty tactics" when fighting.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Ever since getting his magical handysack, he seems to like stuffing it full of inexpensive but useful items.
  • Crush Blush: Emily produces this in him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Competes with Angelika for the title.
  • Fatal Attractor: Of the two women he shows interest in, one turns into a tentacle monster and the other happens to be a vampire who promptly Dominates him.
  • Hollywood Nerd: If he was drawn more realistically, he'd probably look like this. Here's a picture; judge for yourself.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's not as bad as Angelika, in fact Rocky's not such a bad guy once you get to know him.
  • Knife Nut: Though he actually wields a shortsword. He does use throwing daggers for some of his sneak attacks.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Rocky hardly ever smiles, and when he does it's usually a smirk of some kind.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His father owns a flower store and Rocky did help with it, including making flower arrangements.
  • Red-Headed Stepchild: Though he isn't a stepchild, he does catch some flak over his red hair, especially from Angelika.
  • Sour Supporter: He's cranky yes, but he usually gives Julie and the group his best.
  • The Smart Guy: Since Lenny's moved into Lancer territory in the group.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Nearly. The party's faced undead that drain Life Energy several times, and they've all complained that his tastes like rotten lemons.
  • True Neutralinvoked: Also the least fettered of the group, though Emily's also pretty unfettered.

    Pauline Mikado
Pauline Mikado

"Less talky more stabby, guys!"

Pauline is a barbarian, a melee fighter that relies on rage, passion and two-handed weapons to win battles. The group met her in a small town on their way from Huckleton to Everwood, after defeating her underlings in a bar fight. They also defeated her in combat the next day and she decided to join them on their quest. Pauline may be a girl but she's practically one of the guys and has some pretty nasty hygiene problems to boot.

    Emily Wellis
Emily Wellis

"Fortunately I learned how to make magic arms and armor that DON'T scream obscenities at their wielders."

Emily is a pleasant (appearing) but reserved wizard who has joined the group when they were in Llanadario. Emily was a magic student from Everwood, but is now on the road to learn about magic and document various different types of fungus.

  • Artificial Human: She is a clone of one of the Souballo Empire's victims. This was part of a project by Angelo to artificially mass produce an army of Super Soldiers, each bonded with a Puppeteer Parasite. She chose to sneak out. Nevertheless, other Emily clones remain in the Angelo's cult.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Surprisingly racist against Elves, and can be downright sullen and snarky when she wants to be.
  • Brainy Brunette: Played straight. As her character sheet will tell, she has the highest INT score and she's helped the group with some decent combat tactics in some of the enemy encounter they've had.
  • Cute Witch: She's pretty attractive and is seen cleaned up nicely during her and Rocky's date. Part of her low-ish charisma comes from being somewhat reserved.
  • Earlybird Cameo: Introduced 200 pages earlier in the comic, way back when Julie's group was in Everwood.
  • Evil All Along: Seemingly. Though she turns out to have actually been a Meat Puppet.
  • Fantastic Racism: Not to the same extent as the Souballo Empire, but she doesn't think very highly of Elves, referring to them as tree-dwelling baboons. Which is due to the fact that she was created by one of their projects.
  • Foil: For Angelika, but Emily's shown not to want to participate in that.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Angelika hates her because she's jealous of her relationship with Rocky, Julie doesn't trust her because she caught Emily spying on her, and thanks to her low charisma, Emily never really bonds with Lennie or Jordie. The only member of the party to really like her is Rocky. As a result, most of them get over her apparent betrayal and death pretty quickly.
  • Hollywood Nerd: She looks pretty fine in her Everwood Magic School uniform.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Specifically referred to as one after the parasite inside of her takes full control and reveals its own form.
  • An Ice Person: She states that she really likes ice spells while freezing four Kobolds to death.
  • Item Crafting: Emily has the ability to enchant weapons and armor.
  • Killed Off for Real: She gets killed off by a Puppeteer Parasite and the parasite gets killed by one of the magicant's guardians. Seeing little difference between her and the treacherous parasite, Julie's party doesn't bother making any effort to raise her.
  • Meat Puppet: Turns out she was infected and controlled by some manner of Puppeteer Parasite loyal to one member of the Big Bad Duumvirate. She gets killed when it takes full control.
  • Mega Nekko: She has much of the trope's personality traits. Glasses are also fairly rare in this world, making her stand out.
  • Nerd Glasses: She is a nerdy witch, and has glasses.
  • Noodle Incident: She would not go into detail about why the school sent her on this strange fungus mission.
  • The Quiet One: She's had a few jokes, but she's even quieter than Lenny in this regard.
  • Real Dreams Are Weirder: She contrasts hers to Jordie's Talking in Your Dreams.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Invoked sometimes when attacking something with magic or when she's about to do something questionable.
  • Shrinking Violet: Subverted. The group's first impression was this, but Emily's reveals herself merely to be mild-mannered and somewhat aloof.
  • Sixth Ranger: Technically the fifth, due to the original fifth member being killed.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Courtesy of a Puppeteer Parasite.
  • Squishy Wizard: Emily is a wizard and has less constitution than Angelika.
  • The Stoic: Emily isn't very emotional, and seems much less fettered than other group members.
  • Transformation of the Possessed: When the parasite inside of her takes full control and kills her, her body is warped into a Humanoid Abomination.
  • Wizarding School: Emily was training at the Everwood Magical University.

    Jordie Kent
Loves giving hugs.
Jordie Kent

"I'm supposed to go with you on your journey!"

Jordie Kent is a Cleric who found Julie via divination magic. Apparently it is destiny that bound him to her, though Julie and the others seem a bit skeptical about it. Julie met him in Autumnson while she was at a temple gathering info on an Erinyes that attacked her. It was originally after Jordie, apparently.


How well does it match the trope?
