Go To

This is the cast list for Princess Chroma. May contain nuts.

    The Main Cast 

June Summer

A violent, temperamental schoolgirl stuck with the job of restoring light and color to the world as Princess Chroma. She’s got a headstrong personality and has a knack for rubbing others the wrong way. Her approach to battling evil generally consists of punching or hitting things with a mace.

Leopold Gryphon/Spiders

An immortal Winged Humanoid from Elysium with considerable magical skill in his own right, Leopold has the misfortune of being June’s mentor. He takes the form of a winged rabbit and hardly a day goes by that he’s not thwarted, abused, or humiliated in some way.

April Showers

A schoolgirl who’s been friends with June for some time, April is considerably more practical-minded and mature than most of the people around her. She’s un-amused with the idiocy of others and tends to be overly serious, but she’s quite sharp and quick to react to situations that would leave others dumbfounded.
  • Facepalm: She’s more prone to this gesture than most of the cast.
  • Only Sane Man: By far the most normal character and painfully aware of the fact.

Sonny Showers

April’s twin brother Sonny has a serious love of video games. Whatever the situation, if he can get gaming involved somehow, he’ll find a way to come out on top. Though he has a friendly, gregarious personality, he also has a persistent and sometimes childish competitive streak.
  • Adorkable
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: As expected of a character living by video-game logic.
  • Keet: Energetic, cheerful, and optimistic. Even in bad situations, he’s rarely ever seen in a low mood.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: More likely, he never got the memo that anyone would not be proud of it. He makes all kind of references to video games and gleefully geeks out over things without a hint of shame.

May Flowers

A friend of June and April, May is the embodiment of girly cuteness, always bubbling over with positive energy and a cheerful smile. Though a bit spacey, she’s kind-hearted and just wants everyone around her to be happy. Because of her sweet disposition, May can get along with practically anyone.
  • The Cutie: Adorable, happy-go-lucky, and entirely sweet-natured.
  • The Ditz: She’s not exactly stupid, but she’s a terrible judge of character and has almost no sense of danger.
  • Decoy Protagonist: For a couple pages, we're led to believe that she's the Princess that Spiders is looking for, because she's next to June and has a personality much more suited to the role.
  • Sweet Tooth: She loves her sugary treats and is quite willing to share.

Cordelia Si Wol

Cordelia is a stubborn, accident-prone witch with a vindictive streak. Though not above misusing her powers out of petty spite, she’s willing to lend a helping hand (albeit passive-aggressively) if trouble starts brewing. Her specialties are magic powders and a wand that can transform into a variety of objects.
  • Brutal Honesty: She doesn’t pull her verbal punches one iota, but she’s often right.
  • Cute Witch: Despite not dressing very witch-like, she certainly qualifies.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Shows glimpses of this in the current arc, though if being stuck in a world of darkness with her frenemies doesn't defrost her, nothing will.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She’ll save people she hates with her powers, just don’t expect her to be nice about it.

Randall March O’Hare

A sour-tempered boy who has the ability to break the fourth wall, Randall treats everyone with disdain and does absolutely nothing to endear himself to others. Naturally, May has taken a liking to him, to Randall’s never-ending consternation.
    Supporting Characters 

Princess Chroma I

A Princess of Elysium with powerful magic. Chroma is sweet and well-meaning, but horribly careless. As a direct result of her inattention, she’s responsible for the existence of The Shade and the Monochromes.

King Brunswick

A King of Elysium and Chroma’s elder brother. Brunswick is capable ruler with a calm, collected demeanor. He’s good at sizing up situations and, much unlike his little sister, he’s very conscientious about the consequences of things.
  • Aloof Big Brother: Well, he is Chroma's big brother, and he is rather reserved and stern.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He cares a lot about what happens to Chroma, though he’s hardly blind to her shortcomings.
  • Bread and Circuses: managed to rebrand Chroma's dark magic so that she could be a heroic magical girl, at least for a time
  • The Good King: He’s stern, but entirely benevolent and plenty competent at being a ruler.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's not above manipulating his subjects or his family, but he does have their best interests at heart.
  • Modest Royalty: His crown aside, his clothes aren’t that much more extravagant than the uniforms the castle guards wear, and even the crown isn’t very elaborate.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure

The Shade

A malicious creature responsible for the existence of Monochromes on Earth. The Shade has an inherently cruel, heartless nature and a nasty temper to boot. Chroma mistakenly summoned him as her Familiar.
  • Big Bad
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: He was summoned by Chroma herself from a cake recipe.
  • Napoleon Complex: He did not react well to Leopold shrinking him in their first encounter.
  • Slasher Smile: It’s kind of bad when he frowns. It’s never, ever a good thing to see him smiling.


The Grim Reaper himself. Julio usually hangs around to make sure June does her homework at the behest of her mother. He seems to be quite a ladies’ man, too.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: He’s Death, yes, but he’s hardly evil and even has a silly streak.
  • Serious Business: His day job involves making sure June gets her homework done and shows up to school on time. He takes this job very seriously.
  • The Voiceless: He talks about as much as one would expect an animate skeleton to talk.

Queen Juno

The current reigning Queen of Elysium. Juno is mysterious and always seems to know more than she lets on. She’s a benevolent ruler nonetheless and is the one who sends Leopold to Earth in the first place.

How well does it match the trope?
