    Thomas Stratus
Thomas Stratus

" My apologies. I tend to zone out sometimes when dealing with really stupid people."

Up until the second book, this wizard didn't have an official name in the comic, but he has crossed paths with Julie's gang more than once. He runs a scroll shop in Everwood, which was where the group met him. They met him again in Huckleton when they were buying ferry tickets to cross the ocean. Originally he seemed to be an unimportant character, but the second book's has him established as a fair bit higher up on importance.

  • All-Powerful Bystander: The old timer is very powerful, but doesn't have much to do with Julie's group.
  • Ascended Extra: While he was nothing more than a recurring character in the first book, he's arguably the main character of the B plot in the second book.
  • Badass Grandpa: He reveals that he's higher-levelled than Rocky and Angelika combined, and that he's a great-grandfather.
  • Brick Joke: After 300 pages, he finally wears his casual outfit.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Deadpan Snarker: Many of his lines are pretty decent.
  • He Knows Too Much: He learned about the Souballo's invasion plan, so the Emperor refines a plan to ruin Stratus' name in the city of invasion by commiting horrible crimes, disguised as Stratus.
  • Insufferable Genius
  • Old Master: He is a high-level wizard, and has been revealed to be one of Brian Souballo's teachers.
  • Recurring Character: He is one of the few non-player characters that Julie's group has dealt with more than once, and probably later on as well.
  • Retired Badass: He used to be a (presumably) magic teacher for The Emperor before making/selling magic scrolls in Everwood.
  • Squishy Wizard
  • Taken for Granite: Does this to Zaedalkaah as punishment for Zaedalkaah's failed assassination attempt.
  • True Neutralinvoked: His personality seems to be this. It's also hinted at when Brian extends the empire membership offer to him as someone "who would be cool...ish with the idea, alignment-wise." Even when Stratus delivers his You're Insane! speech to the emperor, Stratus seems to just phone it in somewhat.
    • He has associated with both Denise the Astral Deva (an Angel) and Yolee the Succubus (a Demon.)
  • Unequal Rites: He holds the traditional wizard's opinion that Sorcerers are inferior to Wizards.
  • You're Insane!: Stratus does a half-hearted, snarky one of these to the Emperor before the Emperor attacks him.

    Eric Patterson
Eric Patterson

"Could you please, please, PLEASE un-quit and come back?"

Patterson is Julie's former boss when she was working at The Wayside. He's a fairly understanding person, but he does seem not to have that many scruples and is less lawful than one would expect or hope. He eventually gets kidnapped by Brian due to his good barkeeping abilities... and because Angelo wanted a "Huckleton Heartthrob".

    Peganone Silkweed
Peganone Silkweed

"We're not judgin'... at least in the 'non chosen one' sense."

Peganone is an elven woman, and a member of the Everwood Council. She is also one of the three judges in Everwood Idol. She is a wizard who seems to be specialized in Divination magic. She is the most cheerful of the three.



"Your distressingly low level is all the more reason to keep quiet about your mission."

Simonicus is probably the leader of the Everwood Council, or it may be a triumverate thing. He is the most serious of the three, and is one of the judges in Everwood Idol. He is another wizard, though we haven't seen him do any wizardly things in the comic yet.

    Randi Goldenaxe
Randi Goldenaxe

"Call me crazy, but it might be a bit of a step backwards in the world savin', girl."

Randi is the third member of the Everwood Council. Unlike Simonicus and Peganone, Randi isn't a Wizard, but a Cleric with a level of Fighter. Randi is also the third judge in Everwood Idol. Randi told Julie that he would be checking in on her every so often, but we haven't seen him do that yet.

    Merla Undercobble
Merla Undercobble

"What's the point in giving a PsiCrystal an interesting name if it never comes when you call it?"

In Llanadario, Merla was the one who psionically called out to Julie so they could talk. Merla turned out to be a member of the Everwood Council's network, helping Julie on her quest.

  • Characters as Device: The whole tower scene seemed more to do with talking about Julie and Angelika's past than revealing present information. Randi even mutters complaints about this.
  • Cutesy Dwarf: Though she doesn't have dwarven features. She looks like an adult human, shrunken down.
  • Fairy Companion: Merla has a PsiCrystal named "Crystal" but this trope is subverted. Crystal is snarky and rarely helps her.
  • Friends with Benefits: With Randi, it seems.
  • Hobbits: Not called that in the webcomic for obvious reasons, but Merla's the first important Halfling character in the story.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Merla has several pet cats, who all love pesturing Norveg and Angelika.
  • Older Than They Look: Looked pretty much the same age almost 20 years ago when working with Theodore and Rosa Magilligan.
  • Psychic Powers: Merla is a powerful psionic.
  • Teleporter Accident: When attempting to teleport psionically to Everwood, she slams into one of her cats. The way she looks when she does it might be familiar to some.
  • Voice of the Legion: When Merla speaks telepathically to someone, the voice heard in the mind is monsterous and horrible.

    Eva Wilson
Eva Wilson

"You're wanted in Everwood for crimes against life! That's pretty cut and dry if you ask me!"

Eva Wilson is a Paladin for Stellina, the Angel of Justice (the main Lawful Good deity for Manjulias). She has takes on on the quest of hunting Zaedalkaah down and bringing her to justice. This sentence is of course, death. Eva Wilson's quite the straight arrow, and isn't interested in the reward offered for Zaedalkaah's capture other than to donate it to charity.

  • Action Girl: Easily defeated Zaedalkaah/Umbria when they actually fought (which consisted of a painful horse kick, Zaedalkaah/Umbria attempting to paralyze Eva and failing).
  • And Imust Scream: Subverted eventually. Eva was crushed into a bloody cube via Implosion spell by Angelo. Her soul was then bound to a jewel so she could never get to the heaven that she thought she would go. Angelo eventually let her soul go when he has a moment of conscience.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: Averted. when she loses the battle against Angelo, Eva attempts to commit Seppuku to avoid a worse fate. This fails, and how she's under his mental control.
  • Brainwashed: What Angelo did to her after preventing her suicide attempt.
  • The Comically Serious: Eva Wilson has never been seen as anything other than deadly serious so far.
  • The Determinator: Successfully resists Angelo's first attempt to magically sway her to like him.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Eva is good, but all work and no play. Umbria/Zaedalkaah even referred to her as Miko Miyazaki.
  • Knight Errant: She swears fealty to Stellina, but doesn't seem to belong to a specific church.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: She complains of being a Paladin sometimes, due to her strict adherance to law and her personal code.
  • Lawful Goodinvoked: Played pretty straight, almost to the point of Lawful Stupid.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: When Angelo appeared and took Umbria/Zaedalkah, Eva pretty boldly called him out on his evil deeds and attacked him, despite Peganone insisting Eva to stand down. The next part did not go well for any of them.
  • Odd Couple: Her partner is her horse, though Charismatic Seaweed is quite a bit less lawful than she is.
  • Paladin
  • Soul Sista: Averted.
  • They Fight Crime!: Eva and her fully sentient horse, Charismatic Seaweed.
  • Tragic Hero: Her Tragic Flaw was inflexability in her ethics and alignment and her Tragic Mistake was not backing down even when Angelo gave her the chance to.

    Terramycin Shadowleaf
Terramycin Shadowleaf

"Living out of your backpack, kicking the Empire's ass... I'm so jealous."

Terramycin is an Elf girl that Julie's group met in a small town they passed through. She doesn't appear to like humans very much, and has strong and hateful feelings toward the Souballo Empire. She also has a son named Daytranna who runs a curiousity shop in the same town. There is more to her and her son than meets the eye.

  • Action Girl: She turns out to be a mid-level rogue and shows off her skills in a battle in the town.
  • Action Mom: Fights alongside her son against the Angelo's Kids who attack the town. She and her son stomp them flat.
  • Badass Normal: She activated a scroll of greater invisibility but has no magic of her own, being a rogue.
  • Fantastic Racism: Terramycin doesn't like humans very much, especially those from the Souballo Empire.
  • Loveable Rogue: She's a fairly charming girl once you get to know her.
  • Heroic Neutral: Expressed an interest in Julie's adventuring but turns out to be more interested in protecting her hometown.
  • It's Personal: Terramycin and Daytranna slay an entire group of Angelo Kids because they murdered a gnome friend of theirs.
  • Our Elves Are Better: She also explains how Elves get their technicolor features.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Not quite seven hundred, but she says she's 245 years old, and oddly enough looks younger than her son.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Played with. She's not evil, but she's a force to be reckoned with.
  • Reluctant Warrior: After her and Daytranna's part of the battle was over, she openly states that she hates fighting.

    Daytranna Shadowleaf
Daytranna Shadowleaf

"It's better to be lucky than good."

Daytranna is an absentminded Elven man who runs a curiousity shop in a small town Julie and her friends visited. Angelika first visited the store in hopes of getting a new tent, and first had the pleasure of meeting the super long haired man. His Mother is Terramycin, and she helps run the inn in the town. Like his mom, there is more to him than meets the eye.

  • Absent-Minded Professor: Not a professor, but a very disorganized wizard who owns a curiousity shop. He knew there was a tent in his store for Angelika, but it took him 19 minutes to find it.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The side he showed Angelika was quaint and lovably unfocused. The side he showed the Angelo's Kids was a lot less so.
  • Fantastic Racism: Has a fair bit less bile than his mom, but it's still there.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Many wouldn't know he was a capable magician just by looking at him or talking to him.
  • Older Than They Look: Odd elven example in that even though Daytranna is Terramycin's son, he looks older than her.
  • Our Elves Are Better: Daytranna's features are late fall/early winter as Terramycin explained.
  • Rapunzel Hair: And various objects get trapped in it, such as caltrops. These caltrops even came in handy when fleeing an Angelo's Kids commander.
  • Squishy Wizard: And the first one not to use fireballs and lightning bolts as their main way to fight. Due to being a Transmuter, he specializes in magic that can make him less squishy and more combat-oriented if need be.
  • Summon Magic: Summons creatures to fight for him with his magic, due to not being able to use evocation magic.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Apparently a sign that he was a late fall/early winter Elf, and he's a wizard which fufills the whole supernatural prerequisite thing.

    Coumadin the Temple Warden
Coumadin the Temple Warden

"Originality's overrated anyway. As long as it's fun, it can be as memorable and good as any established idea."

Coumadin is the caretaker for the temple of the First Magicant piece. He is a Cleric who can channel negitive energy and has three Wraith coworkers who he hangs around with. He introduced himself into the story by challenging Julie's group and with his Wraith friends managed to defeat Julie's group, forcing them to flee and regroup.

  • Always Someone Better: He and his group successfully routed Julie's.
  • Bargain with Heaven or Deal with the Devil: He created two contracts with the denizens of Zebro for assistance in the real battle with Julie's group. His service as Temple Warden is also due to one: it's likely that after spending some time in the Chaotic Evil afterlife, he was raised and took the position to avoid ending up there for good.
  • Black Magic: Most of his magic revolves around negitive energy.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Even The Palm Tree Ghost thinks he's a nut, but he's very good at strategy and guarding the temple.
  • Chaotic Neutralinvoked: Serves The Lady of Fate and Fortune, who is a chaotic demigoddess.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Coumadin's creepy and kind of a nut-job, but he's not malicious and kept the Wraiths from killing Angelika.
  • Fiery Redhead: Subverted. He's quite laid back.
  • Friendless Background: His only friends are Undead monsters and sometime Zebroan Outsiders he pays to be his wingmen.
  • The Necromancer: Unlike normal Clerics, he has the ability to command undead and has spells that can create and assist them.
  • No Social Skills: His only friends are undead monsters, and he greeted Julie and her friends by attacking them.
  • Our Elves Are Better: And his name is Coumadin.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Coumadin has divine magical powers which come from The Lady of Fate and Fortune. Like the goddess he serves, he is also a wild card and a bit of a trickster.

    Candesco, Nemurik Cleric of Nehhilia
Candesco Solstitialis

"Candesco is a common name among my people."

While Angelika was searching for a suitable challenge to restore the level she lost due to returning from the dead, she encountered a Nemurik who accepted her battle challenge. He defeats her easily both times they fought, but Angelika does regain her lost level after the very intense mock battles. Candesco decides to tag along with Julie's group back to Silverfronds as the Merman seems to have business with King Tegretol.

  • The Ace: Due to his impressive stats and high character level.
  • Always Someone Better: He defeated Angelika twice very quickly, and successfully destroyed a Kraken with a lucky magic attack.
  • Authority Equals Ass Kicking: In keeping with a lot of other royals in this comic, Candesco is one of the most powerful characters in the comic.
  • Bizarre Alien Reproduction: It's implied Candesco had 'sex' with multiple females of his race in front of Julie's group. Since it merely involves the females grabbing the tails of the males, the sex is considered G-Rated Sex.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: When it comes to sex at least. Candesco doesn't understand humanoid sexual customs and went to a brothel as an educational experience rather than out of any kind of sexual desire.
  • Dance Battler: Does a lot of gymnastics and ballet when dodging attacks.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Stated by Candesco as he rescues Angelika from death a second time. It's justified as shoes wouldn't help an aquatic race with their swimming.
  • Flight: Candesco can fly as a spell from the Travel Domain from Nehhilia, the Moon Goddess.
  • Kill It with Water: Candesco's Water Strike attack boils an enemy alive.
  • Making a Splash: Water is one of Nehhilia's domains, and there's Water Strike.
  • Modest Royalty: Candesco is apparently a prince, but looks no different from any other member of his race.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: The Nemurik are a race of marine people with aspects of fish and Elves.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Goes with Julie's group to see King Tegretol, possibly to ally with him against the Souballo Empire.
  • The Spock: Calm, cool, rational and quite wise.
  • Spock Speak: Justified as Common isn't Candesco's first language so his speech is a bit formal.
  • Training from Hell: Subjects Angelika to this so she can regain a lost level. This combat nearly kills her twice.
  • True Neutral: In order to be a cleric of Nehhilia some degree of neutral is needed. Candesco doesn't much care about morals or ethics but isn't cruel or malicious either.
  • Warrior Prince: His divine magic and combat skills are very powerful.
  • Wingdinglish: The Nemurik language is shown in comic as a system of runes instead of letters.

How well does it match the trope?
