UNSC

    Allison Church 

Allison Church

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/allison_3083.png

"Leonard, come on, stop it. You're going to make me late."
Portrayed By: Lindsay Hicks

The wife of the Director who served in the UNSC Defense Force, her death due to her own failure left a heavy imprint on his mind. In fact, the imprint is so strong that every "Church" Artificial Intelligence created (including Alpha and eventually Epsilon) creates its own "Beta" fragment, better known as Agent Texas, or "Tex". In Episode 10 of Season 9, it is stated that the designation of Agent Texas was being reserved, indicating that the state of Texas may be seen as important to the Director and Allison. She is also Carolina's mother, with the Director being the father.

After being first implied to exist in the season finale of Reconstruction, she finally appeared physically in Episode 17 of Season 10 as the only person in the series thus far to be canonically portrayed in live action.


Associated Tropes:

  • Action Girl: Though implied from her first mention, Season 10 confirms that she was a soldier.
  • Action Girlfriend: Of a sort for the Director as his wife, given that while he was never in the UNSC Defense Force himself.
    The Director: You see, I never had the chance to serve in battle, nor did fate provide me the opportunity to sacrifice myself for humanity as it did for so many others in the Great War.
  • Action Mom: She is revealed to be Carolina's mother.
  • Brain Uploading: Of a sort. A copy of her is made as a "Beta" fragment every time an Artificial Intelligence of the Director is made. However, since it's a version of her based on his memories, it's not a pure upload.
  • First-Name Basis: With the Director. Justified, in that they were very close, and it is not known if "Leonard" was the Director of Project Freelancer at that time.
  • The Ghost: Until Episode 17 of Season 10.
  • Failure Heroine: How the Director views her In-Universe, remembering her for his love for her and for the fact that she died due to her own failure. Whether or not this is true is unknown.
  • The Lost Lenore: For the Director.
  • Missing Mom: Carolina says that because of her job, she was never around that much.
  • My Greatest Failure: Notably, her "failure" is what the Director remembers her for the most, hence why an inversion of Near-Villain Victory is Texas' defining trait.
    The Director: My mind has always plagued me with the question, if the choice had been placed in my hands, could I have saved her? The memory of her, has haunted me my entire life, and moreso in these last few years than I could ever have imagined.
  • Never Say Goodbye: Carolina pointed out that she refused to say goodbye because not saying it meant that she just wasn't here right now.
  • Nice Hat: Her green UNSC Marine hat that she is wearing in Epsilon's memory of her.
  • No Accounting for Taste: Carolina says she had horrible taste in men, hence the Director's relationship.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: For a certain degree of "design". Allison is the only character who is shown in full live action.
  • Posthumous Character: She is dead by the time the series chronologically begins, and even throughout the Project Freelancer flashback storyline, she is already dead.
  • Rescue Romance: The Ultimate Fan Guide reveals that she and Leonard met when she saved him from being assaulted in basic training.
  • Sacrificial Lioness: For the Director, since her death led to his crimes.
  • Semper Fi/Space Marine: Judging from her uniform and cap, she seems to have been from the UNSC Marine Corps, which fits into both categories.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Under her Nice Hat.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Her death is what drove the Director to create Project Freelancer in the first place. Implicitly, her philosophy about never saying goodbye was a big part of the Director's fixation on her. Allison wanted to never be truly gone and so the Director never accepted that she was, instead trying to bring her back again and again. With the Freelancer Saga's emphasis on finding closure and letting go, this way of thinking is shown to have caused a lot of problems down the line.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her identity spoils a major revelation about Tex and the relationship between Church and Tex, the fact that the Alpha AI is based off the Director, and that Carolina is her daughter.
  • Wham Line: "But don't say goodbye. I hate goodbyes." It reveals just how her death affected the Director.

    Tartarus Crew 

Captain Mayers, Stassney, Blanton, Killgore, and the Rest of the Crew

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ea17c94de06d98ace0f1f39427832ed9.png
Top: Captain Mayers. Bottom: Stassney.

The crew of the Tartarus, a UNSC prison ship that is kind of unnoticed by the UNSC. Mayers is the captain of the ship.


Associated Tropes:

  • Color-Coded Characters: Some of the soldiers are distinguished by the stripes (and Marathon logos) on the arms of their uniforms. Stassney is yellow, Killgore is red, Blanton is green, and an unnamed soldier is blue.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end. Felix takes a bunch of the soldiers out on his own pretty easily.
  • Fantastic Racism: Stassney hates aliens and thinks that despite the fact they are at peace with humans, they will start up war once again.
  • Only Sane Man: Captain Mayers is not as jokey as the other crew members. Notably, when Felix states that he's going to kill them, the others stand in confusion while Mayers goes for his gun.
  • Stray Shots Strike Nothing: Averted, Stassney accidentally shoots one of his own guys when he tries to defend himself from Felix.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: All of them are killed when Locus and Felix hijack the ship in their first episode.

Aliens

     In General 

  • Adaptational Intelligence: Inverted. With the exception of Santa (who's an AI and doesn't count), the Aliens here are extremely primitive and stupid in comparison to their counterparts in the canon of Franchise/Halo.
  • Ambiguous Situation: We know the Human/Covenant War happened in some capacity in this timeline (it's integral to the plot of Season 5, for starters), and that it ended with some sort of peace (as it did in Franchise/Halo). However, we don't know if the actual Covenant exist in this continuity, as all we've seen or been told is that the UNSC is/was at war with the aliens, and due to the limitations of Machinima, we haven't seen or heard of any other species of Covenant (outside of Church hallucinating a fight between the BGC and a force of Jackals and Grunts while stuck in the Epsilon Storage Unit).
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Their war with the UNSC is responsible for A) The creation of Project Freelancer, B) The creation of the Simulation Troopers, C) the death of Allison, D) Church being forced to detonate a bomb that wipes out most of the show's tertiary characters, upon many other events. Despite this, nobody outside of Tex and Wyoming seem to care a great deal about it.
  • No Name Given: They're just called "Aliens", as most of the characters we can understand don't speak their language. It's unclear if they're called the Sanghelli in this continuity, or if the Covenant even exists.
     The Alien 

The Alien

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crunchbite_7095.png

"Blarg? Honk!"
Voiced By: Nathan Zellner

Also known as "Crunchbite", "Crouchasaurus", "Fluffy, the Alien Who Only Loves", and "Honk-Honk" (which may be his real name, but probably not). An alien who gets off on the wrong foot with Blue Team by scaring Church right out of his robot body, and then pounding Tucker into the ground after the latter recovers an alien-built sword, binding it to him. The Alien then proceeds to browbeat the Blues into helping him on his quest to save his people, which apparently involved using the sword to unlock a spaceship. The next step is unknown, as Wyoming proceeded to blow the Alien out of the sky. Besides complaining about the Alien's odor or inability to speak English, Tucker commented that the creature was always standing over him when he woke up, which leads us to Junior, below.


Associated Tropes:

    Junior 

Junior

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tucker_junior_2675.png

"Bow-chicka honk-honk!"
Voiced By: Jason Saldaña

It turns out the Alien's species reproduces via parasitic embryos, and Tucker's mysterious illness near the end of the series is a case of Mr. Seahorse. Junior seems to have inherited his "mother's" catchphrase, and serves to awaken some glimmers of a (dysfunctional) paternal instinct in Tucker, as well as a strong desire in Church to euthanize the "abomination." Junior turns out to be the destined savior of the Alien's race, a fact that O'Malley and Wyoming became very interested in - they planned to infect Junior with Omega, then use him to control the alien race, winning the war for humanity, and then probably taking over humanity for themselves. When Tex and Omega tried to airlift him out of the canyon, Andy the Bomb blew up the craft.

Tucker confirms that he is alive, and that two were working together as relations ambassadors in Recreation, and later that he went to grade school in Season 13. He makes a cameo appearance at the end of the season watching Epsilon's galaxy-wide SOS message. Ten months later, in season 15, Tucker mentions that Junior's well-off with a basketball scholarship.


Associated Tropes

  • Borrowed Catchphrase/Mangled Catchphrase: "Bow-chicka honk-honk!"
  • Child by Rape: Conceived without Tucker's consent or awareness by "Crunchbite".
  • Child of Two Worlds: Junior is the product of Tucker (human) and "Crunchbite" (alien). Later on in Recreation, Tucker mentions that he and Junior have been working as negotiators of a sort.
    Tucker: We’re like the ambassadors here or something. Humans and aliens seem more comfortable with us, since we’re kind of… you know, in between.
  • In the Blood: Making the sleazy porno music at an innuendo wasn't taught by Tucker. It's genetic.
  • Put on a Bus: Hasn't been seen since the explosion of the Pelican in Episode 100 of The Blood Gulch Chronicles. However, Tucker says in Season 7 that he and Junior are human-alien relations ambassadors, so he's alive. Tucker makes a passing reference to him in Season 13 that suggests Junior is currently in the alien equivalent of grade school. He even carries a picture of Junior with his fifth grade basketball team constantly on his person. He reappears in Episode 19 on-board an alien ship, watching Epsilon's message.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Though to less of an extent than Sister.
  • Someone to Remember Him By: In a really weird sense for the first alien.
  • Unexplained Recovery: How exactly did he survive the Pelican crash when all of the other passengers didn't?

    Santa 

Santa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/156b51426bedbfd2a6956ab28bc6c2c5.png

It is an honor to meet you, noble warriors.
Voiced By: Adam Ellis

An alien AI left behind to share the secrets of his people with one who is worthy. He is awakened by Caboose in Season 13's "Test Your Might". Caboose names him Santa.


Associated Tropes:

  • All-Powerful Bystander: Despite having direct access to all of Chorus' alien technology, he refuses to get involved in human affairs, except when complying with a wielder of the Great Key within one of his creators' temples.
    • This is subverted by Season 15, as he's become something of an assistant and "close friend" to Kimball.
  • Artificial Intelligence: Created by an alien race.
  • Badass Baritone: He speaks in a deep voice, indicating how much knowledge he holds.
  • The Comically Serious: Takes his new name in stride. Or he doesn't know what it means. Either way, really.
    • Not to mention when he realizes that his "true warrior," being Caboose, might not be the best choice to impart complex wisdom to:
    Santa: Excuse me, but is there someone else I can talk to? Perhaps someone with a larger vocabulary?
  • Living Lie Detector: He can detect whether a person's words match their true intentions. This comes in handy for Kimball when talking to Dylan Andrews.
  • Nice Guy: Even if he stays neutral in human affairs, he is still incredibly polite and courteous. Even more so in season 15, when he drops the "stay out of human affairs" part.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: So far, Caboose's nickname for him seems to have stuck.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Downplayed, as he isn't necessarily evil...but he is the guardian of powerful secrets, and those who try to pass his tests without being worthy are in for some serious Nightmare Fuel in the following visions.
  • Threshold Guardian: He's the caretaker of an ancient alien race's incredible secrets, but will only grant that knowledge to a "true warrior." To find that warrior, he puts those who enter his portal through a vision that tests their mental and physical capability. Caboose is the one who passes.

Interstellar Daily

    Dylan Andrews 

Dylan Andrews

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dylan.png
"People are quick to jump to conclusions. They see something or hear something and fit it into a preconceived emotional box. [...] It's up to people like me to find the very truth and expose the real facts."
Voiced By: Anna Margaret Hollyman

A reporter for the Interstellar Daily determined to track down the Reds and Blues in Season 15.


  • Anti-Hero: She's insanely selfish and insensitive to the people around her. Not feeling any sympathy for Frank when she started getting him into trouble with the law. However, she's not mean when she doesn't have to be, and does just want to figure out the truth.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: When Carlos flips out on her in the finale, she says "Yo dude, take a chill pill" in reference to Vic.
  • Bound and Gagged: She got tied up by Blues and Reds, when she found out about their motives.
  • Cool Starship: Has a sleek-looking spaceship provided by the Interstellar Daily, though it lacks any sort of defense systems.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially towards her boss.
  • Determinator: She will get her story, laws be damned.
  • Deuteragonist: Of Season 15, with the Reds and Blues still serving as the collective protagonists. While the main crux of the story is the battle between the Reds and Blues and the Blues and Reds, it's also about Dylan trying to get her story.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Her name is first seen in season 12; she's the author of the "Colorful Space Marines Stop Corruption" article that Epsilon showed to Chairman Hargrove.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She's not the nicest gal around, but she doesn't believe in being mean when it's unnecessary to be so. Like when she made Jax feel bad when he was being a slight annoyance. She almost immediately apologized.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Her standard method of getting past military guards is to rattle off a bunch of impressive-sounding letters.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Dylan is typically a male name.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Among the sim troopers, after Temple gets them to distrust her. They come back around, though.
  • Intrepid Reporter: You can't do much better than a journalist trying to track down a group of the galaxy's most celebrated and feared war heroes, especially after they've done a Face–Heel Turn in the eyes of the public.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be abrasive to those who annoy her, and she snaps at Jax in the second episode, very seriously telling him to "shut the fuck up". She immediately feels bad and apologizes, however.
  • Kick the Dog: Shoots Jax so she could have a chance to speak with Grey and Kimball. In the very same episode we learn she left her husband without a word, then had the gall to only call him when she needed a favor.
  • Married to the Job: To the point where her actual marriage suffers.
  • Mercy Kill: She makes a deal with Vic: He helps her out three times, and once she uses up her "three wishes", she's supposed to delete him. She upholds her part of the bargain by having him stop Loco’s machine, which requires him to sacrifice himself.
  • Meta Girl: She frequently says things that fans of the show might be thinking, whether it’s about the Reds and Blues or the strangeness of the current situation.
  • Only Sane Woman: Once she finally finds the Reds and Blues.
  • Pet the Dog: Apologizes for telling Jax to "shut the fuck up" and genuinely felt bad for hurting his feelings.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Her first instinct after barely surviving a firefight with the Reds and Blues is to walk over and interview them.
  • Sherlock Scan: Upon noticing that some of the Reds and Blues are using the wrong weapons and have different voices, she immediately realizes they're imposters.
  • Sixth Ranger: She and Jax become this to the Blood Gulch Crew, as they need her to trace Church's message.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Inverted. She starts to distance herself from the Reds and Blues after they all turn on her. She joins back up with them once they realize they were wrong about her, however.
  • Stealth Pun: She wears an Intruder helmet, and she tends to get her information by breaking into places she really shouldn't be.
  • The Stoic: Dylan is definitely a very experienced and level-headed individual. It's probably why she's such a good reporter.
  • Straight Man: To Jax.
  • Take a Third Option: Unplug Vic and end his misery, or avoid the moral dilemma and leave him, thus making him deteriorate further? How about taking him in as an AI assistant?
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Tries giving this speech to Grif. It fails, horribly.

    "Jax Jonez" 

"Jax Jonez"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jax_jonez.png
Voiced By: Joe Nicolosi

The new cameraman assigned to Dylan after her old one quit. It's not known what his real name is because of his decision to adopt a stage name. He's excitable and has lots of ideas to help Dylan film her story, most of them, not so good.


  • Adorkable: An excitable movie nerd, and really wants to use cinematographic shots to tell the story. Not to mention, he gets depressed easily. Even Dylan feels she should be nicer to him after hurting his feelings when she yelled at him.
  • Asshole Victim: Ends up on the receiving end of a hammer from Atlus. Considering how poorly he treated the cast and crew of his film, it's not entirely undeserved.
  • Author Avatar: He's based on Joe Nicolosi (Season 15 writer/director) when he was still in film school. Jax also mentions that he's done wedding photography, which was Joe's first job.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Decides to create a stage name for himself using this trope.
  • Bad Boss: He verbally and physically abuses his crew, often making them take part in extremely dangerous stunts and forcing them to wear heavy armor. Kohan, his producer, sings his praises only because Jax flat-out threatens to kill him with a loaded pistol.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Tries to convince Dylan to do outrageous shots or change stories completely to his ridiculous movie ideas.
  • The Ditz: He makes up for Dylan's lack of morality in his kindness. While Dylan makes up for his lack of brain power.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After all the trauma he went through with the Reds and Blues and Dylan, and suffering multiple bullet wounds, he eventually turns the whole experience into a script for a movie and pitches it to a Hollywood Executive who is very interested in it. He also offers the executive another one of his previously explained movie ideas, Moon Doom.
  • Foil: To Frank. Whereas Frank quit because he was sick of getting shot at, Jax still wants to be Dylan's partner even after she shoots him herself to get closer to Chorus's head figures.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: He quickly gets on Dylan's nerves with his over-enthusiasm, constant talk of movie ideas and lack of skill at his job. Even the Reds and Blues quickly grow frustrated with him for his movie references and sneaking up on them to film them.
  • Genre Savvy:
    • He's an expert at all kinds of films, actors and directors and thus wants to make his own films eventually. He compares a lot of stuff he sees in real life to something in a movie, either positively with ideas and constructive feedback or negatively by calling something anti-climactic or a weak premise. This leads to him having a Genre Blindness moment, where after Temple gets done explaining his backstory to him and Dylan and how Biff died, Jax thinks it was all just a made up story and offers Temple criticism, until Temple knee caps him.
    • Dylan calls him the leading expert on time travel, and for good reason. When Carolina and Wash meet up with him, he breaks down the various ways time travel can work in fiction to figure how it works in their reality, even pointing out an instance of Sarge and Simmons creating a closed loop.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He's gained a fair amount of anger issues after becoming a big-shot director, constantly deriding and yelling at his crew. He seems to have inherited this from his uncle.
  • Hidden Depths: Jax is actually quite knowledgable about time travel, giving coherent explanations about how it's used in movies, and giving a logical explanation as to what kind of paradoxes it can create.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Thinks Temple's story about how Biff died is just fiction and tries to offer constructive feedback, saying that it's too cliche. This makes Temple angry enough to knee cap him.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: The studio eventually cuts the funding for his movie after seeing how badly Jax has been handling things, and when he tries to go to the Reds and Blues for their time machine, he gets a Gravity Hammer thrown at him.
  • Mood-Swinger: His newfound temper means he can go from cheery to screaming in mere moments. Usually his friendlier tone is directed towards his friends while his angrier ones are towards his crew.
    George: You have guests, sir.
    Jax: IF THEY'RE FROM THE STUDIO, YOU CAN TELL HIM TO WAIT IN THE FUCKING TRASH COMP-oh hey, it's Carolina and Washington. How the hell are you guys?
  • My Nayme Is: Decides that to add an x and z into his name to make it cooler.
  • Nepotism: Apparently this is how he got the job despite his obvious incompetence.
  • Nice Guy: He is more cheerful and moral than his boss. This changes in The Shisno Paradox, where he becomes a Prima Donna Director who yells at his crew and subjects them to perilous movie stunts that could kill them.
  • Only Known By His Nickname
  • Prima Donna Director: Once he gets to direct the adaptation of the Reds and Blues story, he's as controlling as possible.
  • Saying Too Much: When he cheerfully blurts out that he made a movie out of their footage of Spencer serving Tucker, right when Tucker is growing suspicious of their motives.
  • Shipper on Deck: Is eager to see Grif and Simmons kiss after their reunion.
  • Skewed Priorities: He's more interested in film aesthetics than journalism, which frequently gets on peoples' nerves.
  • Tagalong Kid: Still in college, has no experience in military journalism, frequently gets on Dylan's nerves, and never seems to be recording when he should be.
  • Too Dumb to Live: After hearing Temple's story about Biff's death and why he became evil, Jax decides to offer criticism to the Axe-Crazy Serial Killer by telling him that he needs work on the backstory and that the girl back home trope is a tired cliché. It's really no surprise that Temple decided to knee cap him.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Jax is initially a dumb but well-meaning kid. Becoming a famous director gives him a large temper and he both verbally and physically abuses the film crew working for him.
  • The Intern: Still in school with 47 more credits needed to graduate when he's placed with Dylan.
  • Unreliable Narrator: One post-credits scene implies that Season 15 is told from his perspective, and anything in the story that doesn't add up, like the inexplicable references, is the result of him telling it.

    Carlos Trabka 

Carlos Trabka

Voiced By: Bill Wise

The grouchy head honcho of the Interstellar Daily. He hesitantly gives Dylan permission to investigate the Reds and Blues.


  • Adult Fear: His nephew disappearing with Dylan triggered a massive breakdown on his part that required horse tranquilizers to keep in check. Learning that he suffered multiple bullet wounds is what begins to break him out of the Dissonant Serenity the drugs caused.
    Carlos: Bullet - d-did you just say his wounds? Wounds as in, p-p-plural?
  • Bad Boss: He's a huge Jerkass to Dylan. Judging by her reaction to his "give her a rope long enough to hang herself with" line, he's said that to her before. Though, in his defense, it is more of a case of Jerkass Has a Point.
  • Da Editor: He's Dylan's editor, and is quite put out by her Intrepid Reporting.
  • Dissonant Serenity: When Dylan calls him back for the first time in over a month, and after stealing his nephew and his ship, he's oddly calm and happy to talk to her. This is because he was prescribed with horse tranquilizers. It doesn't last long, though.
  • Jerkass: He's not very nice to Andrews.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He calls out Dylan for putting his job and the company at risk.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He loves his nephew enough to help him out with his internship, losing him triggered a massive breakdown, and Dylan telling him he suffered multiple bullet wounds was what began to crack through his tranquilizer-induced Dissonant Serenity. We also learn his criticism of Dylan is very justified.

     James Adler 

James Adler

Voiced By: Michael Jastroch

Dylan's husband and an analyst for the Interstellar Daily.


Associated Tropes:

  • Happily Married: Subverted. James wants to save their marriage, but Dylan is more interested in her work.
  • Nice Guy: To stick with Dylan after she went on a life threatening mission without saying a word to him, only calling him up to demand a favor and then doing that favor, you have to be this.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He's not at all happy that Dylan left without saying a word and the next time she calls him, she just wants a favor.

    Frank 

Frank

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_0380.PNG
Voiced By: Aaron Spivey-Sorrells

A cameraman who used to work with Dylan before quitting due to her ambition constantly getting him into trouble.


  • Butt-Monkey: The only time we see him, he's either panicking, being blown off by Dylan or arrested.
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    Dylan: He's a French Analysis Repair Transfer. No English, but he's the best LCARSDDR in the entire AOL. Ain't that right DuCroix?
    Frank: Oui.
  • Nice Guy: The most we see him do is try to stop Dylan from getting herself and him arrested. When she does, he quits.
  • Only Sane Man: Was smart enough to quit when Dylan's ambition started getting him into trouble with the law.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He wisely quit when Dylan started to get him into trouble.
  • Take This Job and Shove It: When it becomes clear that Dylan will keep getting him into trouble with the law. He quits.
  • The Generic Guy: He does nothing note worthy in his debut appearance, and the next time we hear about him, he's already quit.

The Lozanos

    Gabriel Lozano 

Gabriel Lozano

Voiced by: David Jennison

The son of crime boss Ruben Lozano, and Locus and Felix's target in the prequel episodes.


Associated Tropes:

  • Alas, Poor Villain: While he was a total dick, its hard not to feel bad when his father abandons him.
  • Asshole Victim: Kidnapped, roughed up, and eventually killed by bounty hunters, it's hard to feel bad for him given that he's racked up quite a rap-sheet, and his own father considers him a worthless parasite.
    Felix: You're wanted for murder, drug trafficking, money-laundering, rape... I mean literally the most jailable offenses you could possibly imagine.
  • Batter Up!: Inverted—he may have a baseball bat, but he's the one who ends up on the wrong side of it.
  • Boom, Headshot!: How he goes out, courtesy of Locus.
  • Dirty Coward: When Locus and Felix bust in, they find him cowering behind his desk. And when placed on the phone for the ransom call, he begs his father to pay them off.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: It's implied that he did a rather poor job of managing the nightclub he owns. More tellingly, when Locus and Felix come to "collect" him, he tries to ward off the two gun-toting bounty hunters...with a bat.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Seems to think this way, but gets a rude awakening when he learns that his father doesn't care about whether he lives or dies, and would consider the latter a favor.
    Felix: Christ, you are a stereotype!

     Ruben Lozano 

Ruben Lozano

Voiced by: Derek Mears

A crime boss introduced in the Locus and Felix prequel episodes.


Associated Tropes:

  • Abusive Parents: Refers to Gabriel as "the worst thing [he] ever brought into this world", and doesn't give a damn if he's killed.
  • Arc Villain: In the "Merc" prequel episodes.
  • Beard of Evil: When we finally see him in person, his elegantly-trimmed beard is one of his key features.
  • The Don: He's a crime boss.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He's got a deep voice and is a ruthless crime boss who cares more about his own reputation than his son.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The prequel episodes gets much darker after his introduction with him revealing he doesn't care about his son, and saying he will kill Felix and Locus regardless since he can't let the insult of them destroying his property and kidnapping his son go unanswered. To make sure they don't run he warns them that if they do, he will kill everyone they care about.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: He wears a natty suit and owns a rather classy nightclub.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: His declaration that he cares nothing for his son's life leads Gabriel to reveal the various ways he knows so much about the bounty hunters. This stops the panicked speculation from the mercs and leads to them regrouping much faster.
  • Not So Different: As he is dying, Siris says he shouldn't have brought their families into the conflict. Ruben retorts that the bounty hunters did so first, leaving Siris visibly shaken.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: So far, he's rarely raised his voice, even when describing his plans for retribution to Locus, Felix, and Siris. Or, for that matter, condemning his son to death.
  • Wham Line: "You think I give a shit about my son?"
  • You Have Failed Me: His reasons for letting Gabriel die.

Unaffiliated

    Mason Wu / Siris 

Siris/Mason Wu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/siris___s14.png

"We are not crooks [...] The three of us set out to stop criminals. We do good, we get paid, everybody wins."
Voiced by: Christopher Sabat

Locus and Felix's partner in the past.


Associated Tropes:

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Begs Ruben Lozano for mercy after the crime boss threatens to invoke Revenge by Proxy.
  • An Arm and a Leg: His left leg is a prosthesis from mid-thigh down, and it's strong enough to put a melon-sized dent in a car.
  • Bounty Hunter: Along with Felix and Locus. He apparently got them the gig.
  • Changed My Mind, Kid: He considers abandoning Felix and Locus when things get ugly since Ruben didn't know he was part of their team, but ultimately he sticks around.
  • Ear Notch: On the same side as his prosthesis and eyebrow scar.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He's against illegally taking Gabriel Lozano hostage and would rather have turned him over to the police.
  • Expy: He bears a bit of a resemblance to James Ironwood, and they both have artificial limbs. They both are the Good Is Not Nice member of their respective teams, though this is shown from different angles. Ironwood works with people who are both good and nice, leaving him to do the dirty business. Siris works with people who aren't either good or nice, leaving him as the moral anchor of the team.
  • Happily Married: Implied towards an unseen woman named Megan. Felix even says that Siris can use his third of the bounty money to buy something nice for his wife.
  • Heel Realization: A low grade one, but when he tells the dying Lozano that he shouldn't have brought family into it, Ruben replies that 'you did it first'. Siris takes a minute to think on that.
  • Honor Before Reason: Refuses to run a red light even as they have the son of a crime boss tied up in their trunk.
  • I Have a Family: His motivation for considering abandoning Felix and Locus. He changes his mind and doesn't go through with it.
  • Kick Chick: A male example. Due to his cybernetic leg which is pretty powerful. He incorporates it into his fighting style, such as using it to break a gun.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Strong enough to snap metal pipes in half and hard to catch when he gets moving.
  • Morality Chain: A failed one. He got Locus and Felix into the bounty hunting game for the good they could do and serves as the group's moral compass, but ends up being talked into the ransom scheme. He's also nowhere to be seen in the Chorus arc, where Locus and Felix's morals have taken a nosedive.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His clothes are dark purple, and his shades are tinted purple. Judging by his skills and strength, he is also the most physically powerful of the trio. (See Super Strength below)
  • Super Strength: He's strong to begin with, and fast enough to evade bullets, but his prosthesis has enough force to kick a chunk of exhaust pipe through a man's chest.
  • Token Good Teammate: He's much more reluctant to engage in illegal activities than his partners.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: If he hadn't stayed behind to help Felix and Locus fight off Lozano's men, they would've most likely been killed. This would have left Chorus in a much better place than if Felix and Locus had manipulated them to keep their civil war going.

Intention is no matter. Only consequence has true form.
Voiced By: Jason Marnocha
An unknown soldier with a FOTUS Helmet. Actually just a legal process server, who informs Tucker that he owes several Chorusan mothers child support payments.

  • Ambiguously Evil: His introductory scenes keep it vague as to what side he’s on, and what he plans on doing with Tucker once he finds him. He turns out to be a due process server serving Tucker a class action lawsuit.
  • Ambiguously Human: His helmet resembles that of an Elite, and his obsession with Tucker implies he is at least connected to the aliens. Completely averted after its revealed that he's just a process server.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: He speaks in an extremely formal and archaic style, especially after he's revealed as just being a process server. Why he speaks like this is entirely unknown, except for the obvious metafictional reason.
  • Black Knight: Evokes the classical appearance and mannerisms of one. Averted on the mannerisms part when it's revealed that he's but a humble process server.
  • Bounty Hunter: He is consistently referred to as this after he is revealed to be a process server. It's unknown why.
  • The Comically Serious: He looks and acts far more intimidating than he actually should be, and the contrast between his appearance, mannerisms, and his actual job is his primary source of comedy.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite his red and black armor, his true nature is noble.
  • Embarrassing Last Name: Averted. His strange, overly-long last name doesn't seem to bother him in the slightest.
  • Evil Brit: He clearly has a British accent. The “evil” part is subverted, however, when it turns out he's just "serving" Tucker with child support complaints.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a throaty voice that is serious and intimidating. Like with the other villain tropes that apply to him, this is subverted when he’s revealed to be a process server.
  • Exact Words: "I serve Lavernius Tucker." And he proceeds to serve him a court order for a class action lawsuit for child support.
  • Freaky Electronic Music: His apparent Leitmotif.
  • Good All Along: His loyalties are unclear at first, but then he protects Dylan and Jax from the Blues and Reds, and is revealed to be a process server. If nothing else, he's a lawful servant of the court.
  • Guttural Growler: Literally, as demonstrated by his voice actor - the voice comes from so deep in the throat every word vibrates.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: The most intimidating, badass process server in all of fiction.
  • Mysterious Watcher: He debuts in this way in "The Chronicle", observing Dylan and Jax from the cliffs surrounding Blood Gulch.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His armor is designed like this, but it has no bearing on his actual morality.
  • Red Herring: Everything about him. He's just a process server that was sent after Tucker to inform him of the child support payments he needs to pay. He has no connection to the Blues and Reds, and once his job is done, he departs.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He doesn't contribute to the plot much by himself, but Dylan and Jax not mentioning that they saw him is what fuels Tucker's distrust of them, which allows Tucker to play into Temple's hands.
  • Spikes of Villainy: The giant spike on his helmet serves as this. Minus the "villainy" aspect.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Subverted. After the Chorus Trilogy built up Locus and Felix by having them serve as a Mysterious Watcher over the reds and blues, with distinctive armor and weaponry, he seemed like he was going to be this. He was not.
  • Unstoppable Mailman: Follows Tucker's trail across several planets, warzones, and an abandoned city, just to give him child support paperwork.
  • Villainous Fashion Sense: His armor adheres to every villain design trope in the book. It helps hide the fact that he's a civil servant.
  • Walking Spoiler: Downplayed Trope in that he's really a Red Herring, and The Reveal of his true nature is an intentional Anti-Climax.
