Protagonists

     Noah Collins 

Noah Collins

The main character, a man who went through the zombie apocalypse, and has somehow gained the chance to go back in time and fix his mistakes, possibly leading to a better timeline. He's particularly focused on repairing the relationship between him and his son, Neo.


  • Adorkable: His attempts to reconnect with Neo usually end up like this.
  • Anger Born of Worry: When he sees Neo with blood on his sleeve, he becomes visibly agitated. He becomes even more so when Neo coldly teases that he’s been bit, even though he hasn’t.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is usually a pleasant enough man, but so far, he's the only character to have killed someone who wasn't a zombie: his brother, Ian.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He saves Neo using his Blood Magic after he sees Ian push him to the zombies.
  • Blatant Lies: Some of his lies and explanations about his preparedness for the apocalypse are this.
  • Blood Magic: He can manipulate his own blood into a weapon.
  • Bumbling Dad: During his particularly bad attempts to be kind to Neo. Like trying to be nice and inviting him to breakfast...while forgetting it was Neo's birthday.
  • Butt-Monkey: Can fall into this sometimes. Much of the humor is from his mess ups with Neo.
  • Cain and Abel: He is the Abel to his brother's Cain. But interestingly enough, Noah is the one to kill Ian.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Justified. Since Noah has lived through the apocalypse before, he knows how to prepare for it. This does not go unnoticed by others.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's the only character so far to kill a human, his own brother. However, he only did this after he saw him attempt to kill Neo to survive, and he knows he did it to his own daughter in the previous timeline.
  • Handicapped Badass: He has bad heart problems, to the point he has a monitor around his neck, but he does boast impressive Blood Magic.
  • I Hate Past Me: Implied. He vows to correct his wrongs in the past, particularly his relationship with Neo.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: A good way to tell when he's pushed too far is when he has these. A notable example is when he finally kills Ian after realizing what a danger he is.
  • Older Than He Looks: It's hard to believe he's old enough to have two kids, one a teenager.
  • Papa Wolf: Do not harm Neo in front of Noah. Ian learns this the hard way.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: His skin is very pale (likely due to his sickly nature) and he has jet black hair.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Ultimately his goal.
  • Sibling Murder: After witnessing Ian push Neo to the zombies, and remembering him doing the same to Iva in the past timeline, Noah decides Ian is too much of a danger to the group, and pushes him to the zombies.
  • Specs of Awesome: Is the only main character to have glasses, and has Blood Magic.
  • Taught by Experience: He is very good at knowing how to survive a zombie apocalypse, because he's already lived through it.

     Neo Collins 

Neo Collins

Noah's son, who has been neglected for several years and therefore has a strong grudge against his family.


  • Abusive Parents: Noah used to be close to Neo, but for some reason, he and Parish begin to ignore him, and basically pretend he doesn’t exist.
  • Bastard Angst: He turns out to be dealing with this.
  • Break the Cutie: He was a sweet little boy. Then his parents began to neglect him.
  • Cain and Abel: Implied to become the case between him and his younger brother, Abel.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Oh, he definitely is. He can sass people without blinking an eye.
  • Emo Teen: He has the look and personality. Being ignored and treated like nothing by your family for a good chunk of your life will do that to you.
  • Heroic Bastard: He is revealed to be this, as the result of the affair between Parish and Ian. Although he's more anti-heroic than heroic at this point.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: He "adopts" his brother's dog and renames him Hail.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: He has very cold blue eyes that rarely betray any emotion.
  • Parental Neglect: His parents are very much with him, but he has been neglected by them for a good chunk of his life.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: One of his eyes is always hidden by his bangs.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: It's implied he and Mana had this dynamic in the previous timeline.
  • The Unfavorite: Basically his role in the family.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He used to be a cheerful kid with a close relationship with his father... until Noah found out Neo was Ian’s child, told him not to call him his father and that he wasn’t his son, and ignore him for most of his life.
  • Younger Than He Looks: He looks a little older than thirteen much of the time.

Li

The maid for the Collins family. She's particularly loyal to Noah, and also to Neo.
