Back to the main index here.
All the characters in Roommates who can be considered The Middle Folk and don't fit in earlier categories. (So magic but not Heaven and Hell or living / working in town as much as we can tell. Basically The Fair Folk & The Witch Species). Presumably all related to each other and Jareth somehow. Also their assorted magical creatures and minions will added here too.
Jareth's close(er) family
- Canon: The Chronicles of Narnia
- Affectionate Nickname: Can you believe that she has one?! Because her ex-husband calls her my Snowflake!
- Berserk Button: Mentioning the fact that she was defeated by children is not wise.
- Big Bad: In Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On.
- Card-Carrying Villain: She is evil, knows she is evil and doesn't see any use in love or anything like it... she sees his ex's attempts to give their son more normal motivations as weakness. If there is Evil with a capital E around here she is it.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Why is this love thing so important for her son anyway?
- Evil Matriarch: No wonder her son would do a whole lot to keep her away.
- An Ice Person: Her son knows.
- Knight of Cerebus: Not strictly a villain (even if she is the evilest character here) because the series is quite blurry on the concept but her (and her ex's) arrival marked the beginning of a lot darker stories.
- Might Makes Right: She believes this with all her heart... if she has one.
- Winter Royal Lady: As literally as it gets.
- Witch with a Capital B: This insult is pretty much reserved for her. Here it's the very first thing her ex says to her and also the first thing he says in the comic.
- Canon: The Erl-King
- Ambiguous Syntax: "My son and the girl he has chosen are both in residence" (in the building... He doesn't say in the same apartment, or that they are together). And the "gift of mortality???"
- Badass Cape: See this is his trademark clothing. Can also turn Pimped Out and Impossibly Cool if he wants it so (it will look like the night sky and defy gravity).
- The Beastmaster: All of his minions seen to date were magical / shadow / animal / spirit things. He can definitely use them as Animal Eye Spys and he even lent their power to the cast in Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On.
- Big Bad / Trickster Mentor: He was one of these in Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On... Not perfectly clear which but Trickster Mentor is a bit more likely.
- Borrowed Catchphrase: He uses Jareth's "Such a pity.".
- Casting a Shadow: He seems to possess the same shadow manipulating power his son does and more, as even some of his not directly darkness related magic works through this element. For example he can use shadows like a transporter network. He also likes to invoke Emerging from the Shadows.
- The Chessmaster: Finally awarded for his outstanding performance of Xanatos Speed Chess in Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On. He plans for long and manipulates for fun, profit, and a desire for his son to be something other than Fae. He even has Magnificent Bastard on YMMV.
- Creepy Awesome: He is on both the Nightmare Fuel (even his son calls him this in-universe) and the Heartwarming subpage. There is a fair amount of Squee! every time he appears.
- Crown of Horns: He wears an (impossibly Awesome, but Impractical looking) antler crown.
- Cryptic Conversation: Likes to do this. Combine his Ambiguous Syntax, love of the Rule of Symbolism and being a Fourth-Wall Observer, and you have a difficult conversationalist. Weirdly he is quite sincere and straightforward.
- Disappeared Dad: For Jareth and in his defense, he was banished by Jadis with THE monologue.
- Dream Weaver: We didn't see much of his magic yet, but he can do this with high proficiency. On perfect Your Mind Makes It Real level, if you die in one of his Dream Lands he can even claim your soul.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": His own son calls him "Erlkönig" rather than "Father".
- Evil Parents Want Good Kids: Not outright evil, just morally challenged. He certainly tried to give his son more normal dreams and ambitions. But sadly his wife's idea of the perfect child was Overlord Jr. (and she won custody). He still has a lot to do with the fact that for a member of The Fair Folk Jareth is positively cuddly. See also Intrigued by Humanity and try not to think too hard about it.
- The Fair Folk: Well, we are talking about an old-school fae from the time before Disneyfication. At the same time, he has some interesting ideas concerning the importance of some human values. He freely admits that he doesn't really know what love is but he can identify Power when he sees it.
- Femme Fatalons: In his fae form at least.
- Fourth-Wall Observer: He seems to be almost as aware as the GO guys and is also Genre Savvy. He won't underestimate The Power of Love but build on it!
- Glamour Failure: He has (slightly) pointy ears even in his human disguise, it's unknown if this is an actual failure an accident or he thought he looks cooler this way. (From his ringtone being Figlio Perduto probably the latter.) There are also mirrors that show his true form (like his son's, which may or may not be magic)
- The Grim Reaper / Psychopomp: He is a "Death Avatar"note .
- Intrigued by Humanity: A mild case of the Take a Third Option variety Pinocchio Syndrome. As Fourth-Wall Observer, he sees pretty well what kind of fate his kind is doomed to have because of their oldschool mentality and Most Writers Are Human—they lose. So he takes an interest in humanity to find a way to change this, (like getting access to the Power of Love and Friendship)...
- Invisible to Normals / Invisible to Adults: The only adult characters who can see him if he doesn't want to be seen are the ones with True Sight.
- Knight of Cerebus: Not strictly a villain because he doesn't have the outright malice for it. He is still an avatar of Death and fear, has no idea what love or friendship is, and cannot regret or forgive, so his actions tend to cause misfortune.
- Large Ham: He is really over-dramatic and over-poetic but also brooding and angsty, when he isn't being Tall, Blond And Snarky. Also Chewing the Scenery is one of his favorite pastimes.
- Limited Wardrobe: Something he and his son don't have in common. He was seen in a grand total of two outfits: his fae armor, and a suit that was probably fashionable around the 17th or 18th century).
- Make it four with Kings War. An elaborate elven cloak and a casual pants&shirt combination (which he only in wore in a Dream Land).
- Master of One Magic: He manipulates dark, intangible and deceitful forces in many ingenious ways, but things like White Magic are outside of his domain.
- Monochromatic Eyes: Dark Blue ones. At least according to the color illustrations of him.
- Papa Wolf: Hurt his children and you're dead. Or wish you were.
- Power Crystal: And even natural looking. This seems to be his equivalent of Jareth's Crystal Ball so the Made of Magic physical representation of his spells.
- Public-Domain Character: Well he is from an oooold poem based on even older legends.
- Purple Is Powerful / Supernatural Is Purple: Purple is his second favorite color after (light) blue.
- Romancing the Widow: He does. James' mother. Apparently he prefers older mortal women (more or less).
- Serial Spouse: It's implied that he had several exes in the course of his life and has two children from two different former relationships.
- The Shadow Knows: According to this his glamour can slip this way.
- Shadow Walker: One of the ways he can cast the shadows.
- Strong Family Resemblance: He and his son Jareth. They look alike, dress alike (Painted-On Pants / Villainous Fashion Sense), have similar modus operandi and even share a Catchphrase or two... but no Hereditary Hairstyle (Jareth has '80s Hair).
- Sue Donym: Example bordering on Louis Cypher with a dash of Mr. Smith. He uses the name Lord Errol King or Mr. King for short in his human disguise.
- The Tease: A rare heterosexual male example, as many readers put it the guy is a "bloody flirt"!
- Translator Spell: Word of Ashe that he doesn't speak any other language except the magical being's, but he still can communicate in English so he probably has a translation spell. He still speaks in a runic looking font so probably still has an accent.
- Walking Wasteland: Only for the weak and sick, but prolonged exposure to him can be dangerous to health.
- The Wonka: Can appear as this. Incredibly powerful and awesome Fae noble... as far as we can tell, even his own kind questions his sanity (probably related to him being Intrigued by Humanity, amongst other things).
- Would Hurt a Child: His canon that he killed one. How much was it accident, clulessness or narrative compulsion is up to debate, though. And he is still continuing the babysitting tradition with varying success and probably mortality rate.
- Your Door Was Open: Other characters knock, he just appears in other's apartments. Can be justified by, well, he can teleport and was born before privacy was invented.
- Canon: The Erl-King, other north European myths and legends.
(Jareth's half-sister, also university student)
- Anime Hair: Maybe even Elemental Hair given that she looks kinda mist themed, but it's not yet established.
- Combat Haircomb: She can legitimately intimidate a magical mercenary with an hair pin! (And putting on her Game Face.)
- Curtains Match the Window: Her hair matches her eyes and so do her clothes and make-up.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: What. She is the Erlkönig's daughter and what is a king's daughter?
- Facial Markings: As it can be seen in the pictures she has some.
- The Fair Folk
- Femme Fatalons: When she wants to have them at least... as part of her Game Face for example.
- Graceful Ladies Like Purple / True Blue Femininity: She prefers the misty colors of her eyes and hair and is a graceful fae lady. Maybe even a case of Supernatural Is Purple.
- Master of Disguise: All fair ones can disguise themselves as humans, but hers is the most convincing. She can even fool other fae.
- Monochromatic Purple Eyes
- Named by the Adaptation: For a long time she was No Name Given / Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep". There was even a naming poll for her... Aisling won.
- Public-Domain Character: As with her father, her story is old.
- Shipper on Deck: She wholeheartedly supports her brother and his chosen so Jareth/Sarah. Threatening this pairing (or any people in it) is not wise around her.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's purplish blue, actually.
- Youthful Freckles: In her human disguise instead of Facial Markings.
The Erlkönig's Magical Men's Clubaka The Wild Hunt, as you can guess the people here also belong to the Magical Community.
- Canon: Arthurian lore
- Adorkable: Well yeah. Mostly when he is worried (which is almost always with all The Tricksters around).
- Cool Crown
- Long-Lost Relative: Long lost uncle of Javert. To quote James "This is going to be awkward, isn't it?". (That he is related to Jareth is pretty much given.)
- Only Sane Man: At least he is the sanest member of the hunt. Not that it means much.
- Public-Domain Character: From the Arthurian Legends obviously.
- Token Good Teammate: Of the hunters. Poor guy is stuck with a Jerkass God and a Fair Folk as teammates.
- Canon: Norse Mythology
- Boisterous Bruiser: A Magic Knight one. He is the most enthusiastic of the hunt and happy to face any challenge... he is equally disappointed when he doesn't get his big fight. Or the maidens.
- The Casanova: He is partial to the maidens... and was talking about the quarry.
- Cool Horse: Still has Slepnir.
- Eyepatch of Power
- Nice Hat: Bordering on Fedora of Asskicking as he is based on his Wanderer aspect.
- Public-Domain Character: Well. He is from Norse Mythology.
- The Omniscient Council of Vagueness: How the group generally operates, it also tends to skew towards True Neutral in flavor with a hint of bright colors. It has rules to not become a Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering: Participant are allowed to act without council approval but should hope fervently to not fail.
- Canon: The Sandman
Not here: Death (under Killed for Canon meeting on the Townsfolk page)
- Cuddle Bug: (S)he reeeeeealy likes Erik.
- Canon: Land of Oz
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She isn't so good actually.
- Black and White Insanity: There are heroes and there are villains in her eyes with not much in between or chance to change teams.
- Blow You Away: She is a master of the spirits of air.
- Chekhov's Gun: Those flowers in her hair? There are some magic poppies amongst them.
- Flower in Her Hair: A whole lot of them.
- Knight Templar: She sees herself as Well-Intentioned Extremist at worst, add her Black and White Insanity and you will see why she got this trope.
- Magic Wand: She has one
- Canon: West African and Caribbean folklore, Anansi Boys
- Extra Eyes: Eight eyes, but only on his Game Face.
- Fedora of Asskicking: Yeah. We don't know how badass he actually is, but felt perfectly safe Dope Slaping Sun Wukong.
- Flash Step: Did this at times.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He has 3 to 6 arms depending which panel you look. He is a spider, though.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Someone's Touching My Butt levels at times.
- Properly Paranoid: He went to the Conclave of a Trickster... but expects the unexpected, lampshades the "don't trust the trickster" rule, and then subverts it with I Know You Know I Know.
- all lowercase letters: he talks in them.
- Asleep in Class: Well, not in class exactly. But if Anansi is to be trusted he fell asleep on The Saga of the Volsungs. As on the real event!
- Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Anansi accuses him of this, because, well, he was Asleep in Class.
- Poirot Speak: A bit, as at least mystery / riddle misses from his vocabulary, he uses koan instead.
- Canon: The Tempest
- Spear Carrier: Turns out he is the messenger of the Conclave. He returns after the war is won to declare the victor and pass on some information to the loser.
- Canon: Egyptian Mythology
- Canon: Howl's Moving Castle
- Canon: The Tempest
Titania and Oberon
- Canon: A Midsummer Night's Dream
- Canon: Russian fairy tales
- Canon: Faust
Outside of the listed beings The Erlkönig also attends this.
- Canon: The Slender Man Mythos
Appeared on the 12th cover, or didn't he? Later joined the poker party.
- The Blank: Perfect for poker.
- Humanoid Abomination
- Jump Scare: His first appearance is an animated cover... According to Ashe he just arrived early for game night.
- Canon: The Ring
- I Know What You Fear: His power that earns him admission.
The Notebook, Tony the Talking Clock, and presumably the rest
- Canon: Don't Hug Me I'm Scared
The Freelancers / Unsorted
- Canon: The Last Unicorn
(Part of Jareth's extended family)
- Court Mage: He doesn't seem to be actively part of Jareth's court but he still plays the role of a magical advisor enough to qualify as this. (Also makes sense if we consider what kind of a mage he is and what kind of court Jareth rules.)
- Functional Genre Savvy / Medium Awareness: He even warns Jareth that he is trying to defy the story.
- Hope Is Scary: He remarks that hope is a cruel thing after his aforementioned talk with Jareth.
- Mr. Exposition: Well, he presented a Wall of Text Info Dump about the history of the Goblin Monarchy. With this dethrowning the Doctor.
- Canon: Arthurian lore
(Mother of Javert and aunt of Jareth)
- Composite Character: Technically she would be Morgan The Healer but so many storytellers messed with her, her personality got mixed with so many others...
- The Cutie: At least when not in "dark" mood.
- Hidden Eyes: When she is in her "dark" mood.
- Lethal Chef: Word of Ashe and these pages that she is one.
- Mood-Swinger: Almost to the point of Split Personality. The visible effect of her inconsistent characterization.
- Public-Domain Character: And a person shaped lampshade of their the poor characterization consistency.
- Slasher Smile: Her signature smile in her "dark" periods.
- Canon: The Magic Flute
- Friendly Enemy: This is how she seems to relate to the Erlkönig. They antagonize echother, but get along quite well when you get down to it.
- Canon: ???. Roommates possibly.
- Expressive Hair: Same as her clothing later. And her Ears.
- Expressive Shirt: Her Leotard of Power has small wing/feather like things that goes up or down with her mood.
- The Fair Folk: Quite probably. Has all the physical characteristics to qualify as a pure blooded fae in the series (namely: Pointy Ears and Monochromatic Eyes) and called Jareth "one of us".
- Femme Fatale
- Invisible to Normals: When she wants to, or at least the "You see me- How?" when she had the misfortune to run into Miss King suggests it strongly.
- Leotard of Power: She wears one. Practices Waif-Fu. And it's also expressive.
- Masculine Lines, Feminine Curves: A weird subversion. Ashe's style to draw women tends to be highly (many times impossibly) curvy and this didn't change but "Odile" also has a lot of sharp lines (more than most if not all male characters) which gives her a "living crystal" look.
- Mistaken Declaration of Love / Magic Kiss: Seems like accepting "Odile"'s hand / answer when you're calling out for your true love magically binds you to her.
- Only in It for the Money: Word of Ashe that she is a mercenary.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: "Odile" is a Code Name. We don't know her actual one.
- Revenge Before Reason: Let's just say that she took that pan very personally, which isn't too professional for a mercenary. (For her misfortune she run into someone violently protective.)
- Waif-Fu: She is comparatively small and looks fragile but has uncanny (maybe magic enhanced) reflexes and fights barehanded... can fight three armed Badass Normal characters simultaneously without problem. Later revealed that they just stalled her, but it's still impressive.
Gods and Anthropomorphic Personifications
("Pet" or maybe house god or just visitor of Satine and Christian)
(According to Pika Jareth's cousin from his mother's side.)
- Smug Snake: He seems so confident and smug in his first panel. Just to "ask" for Brain Bleach some panels later. (Jareth is creative)
(Acquaintance of Jareth)
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Of sleep and dream.
- Cute Mute: Still only "talks" in sand pictures.
- Dishing Out Dirt: His main weapon is still sand.
(She came to take away the little boat at the Burial at Sea.)
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the sea.
- Original Character: Or at least original design, even if it has some Disney influences.
- Adorable Abomination: Adorable? Yep. Eldritch? The kid has shadow tendrils defying the conventions of the medium and Mind Rape powers!
- Affably Evil: When he doesn't attack at sight he comes off as genuinely nice and even empathetic to the suffering his very existence causes, but then turns around and gives long detailed descriptions of how he intends to destroy his enemies, making it clear that he enjoys this part of being a personified negative emotion way too much.
- All Your Powers Combined: He first formed in the comic by the hunters' and the main cast's Shadow Beasts devouring eachother.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: of Disbelief
- As Long as There is Evil:The Shadow Child crying: "Once known, I'm never truly gone - Every grievance invites me back to broken hearts."
- Catchphrase: I don't believe in you.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He is introduced in the Wild Hunt arc... Returns in Kings War for a more complex role.
- Combat Tentacles: He can use his shadows, shadow vines like this... not that he normally needs to.
- Creepy Child: Let's just say that he is on the Nightmare Fuel page for a reason.
- Does Not Like Shoes: He appeared fully clothed but barefoot. Maybe to signify that he is "down to earth" but don't read this as Earthy Barefoot Character because he isn't more on the side of Flat-Earth Atheist.
- Emotion Eater: From calling the mourning of the characters (especially the doubt/denial phase of the mourning process) "banquette" this is very likely.
- Flower Motifs: Well, plant motifs. The kid has literal shadow tentacles that don't have a set shape (from shapeless shadow streaks to black wings) but for some reason appear most commonly in the form of creeping thorny vines... and yes, blooming and falling petals happen too.
- I Know What You Fear: He is the biggest thing any fictional being has to fear so obviously has this power.
- I'm Not Afraid of You / "The Reason You Suck" Speech: His main weapons. And from what he personifies you can bet those are weapons grade.
- The effectiveness actually seems to be directly proportional to how much the target requires his suspension. Willing Suspension of Disbelief. An "I don't believe in you." was enough to knock out mythical and fairy tale beings, "based on a true story" types lasted a longer but given the series' tendencies to Transfictionality he probably even has effect on real people.
- Kids Are Cruel: He takes the form of a little boy. Guess why.
- Man in White: He doesn't look old enough for this trope, but he still got it as he is definitely older than he looks and otherwise fits not only in clothing but also in mannerisms (and being either evil or at least very alien).
- Morality Pet: As of the latest arc, Socks seems to be turning into his. At the very least, Disbelief is surprisingly protective of him.
- Ninja Prop: His shadow vine tentacles are all around the comic, sometimes just decorating the panels, sometimes breaking them, occasionally even reaching in and doing stuff. Kid is a prop ninja!
- Original Character: One of the very few. But considering what he is we could say only his design is from this comic.
- Ambiguous Gender: At least. (S)he (according to Ashe: it) could be perfectly genderless as far as we know.
- Anthropomorphic Personification
- Be Careful What You Say: ...it might be listening. Direct example: On page 310 James said: "...scorn to change my place with kings." cue Kings War half a year later. Let's test that scorning, shall we? The Living Words is a jerkass.
- Cheshire Cat Grin: You know what is even less trustworthy than a smile like this? One that reads "Sacrifice" or "Tragedy".
- The Chooser of The One: The chooser. It says who can be a hero and who can't no matter how much they may try, period.
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: At least the Hungarian translator claims that the Living Words is deliberatelly messing with her work, and she also blames it for comment posting errors (especially if the comment in question contained any argument against the Living Words').
- Invisible to Normals: It seems to be only seen if he wants to be seen.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: It apparently operates like The Silence. Which means you forget it, or at least it fades in the background of your memory, when you look away.
- Manipulative Bastard: Use a child's curiosity, or a goblin's innocence to invoke the Rule of Drama? Sure thing.
- Meaningful Background Event: It is one.
- Nonstandard Character Design: This is a comic in fairly lifelike animesque. Now the Living Words looks like a collection of scribbles in a vaguely humanoid shape (if you can make out words, those are probably plot important to boot), which is a jarring change. It is also constantly changing, almost like a person made out of Matrix Raining Code.
- Original Character: One of the very few. But considering what it is we could say only its design is from this comic.
- Waxing Lyrical: There are pages where it consists of nothing else than the lyrics of various songs. Or of classic quotes. Or of ironic nursery rhymes.
- Wild Card: The "It Amused Me" and/or the audience type to boot. It can help or hinder anybody for basically any imaginable "Rule Of..." trope especially the Rule of Drama.
- Ambiguous Gender: Definitely.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Music
- Nonstandard Character Design: Like Story, Music doesn't look like the other characters. He/she/it is composed of a musical staff, musical notes, and other symbols from sheet music.
- Original Character: One of the few (unless we take the 'Angel of Music' part more literally from the song).
- Ambiguous Gender: So far, there are no indications of his/her/its gender.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Writer's Block
- Early-Bird Cameo: First appeared on one of the cover pages.
- Nonstandard Character Design: Looks like a white, featureless humanoid figure with a black outline. No facial features, clothes, or other indications of anatomy. He/she/it just looks blank.
- Original Character: Inspired by Bookworm Gal
- Worf Effect: One of Blank's first actions was to take out the Erlkönig.
Minions and retainers
- Canon: Labyrinth
(Sarah's Nonhuman Sidekicks and Jareth's minion)
- Canon: Labyrinth mostly.
- Adorable Evil Minions: Of Jareth. Even if their adorableness is a question of taste.
- Our Goblins Are Different: They are the Unwanted. Wished away children and all the creatures not taken by any other supernatural court.
- Species Of Snowflakes: There is no two identical goblin, even the most insignificant background one has a distinct appearance.
- Canon: Roommates
(Random goblin. Jareth's (and Sarah's but she wouldn't admit) minion. Also check the "Many faces of..." page)
- Adorable Evil Minion: Even if his adorableness is a question of taste. He kinda looks like a House Elf.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He appears as early as the Dark!Jareth arc as background goblin, but Kings War is his story.
- Fan of Underdog: James is a True Hero (and replacement father) for him and he will tell this even to the Story itself! Unfortunately while the guy has the qualities for a hero but not the narrative (he is The Lancer at best)... If you really want to know check the Many Faces Of... subpage what it took for poor goblin to transform his hero into a real one.
- The Nicknamer: He never used anybody's real name. He isn't too creative though, so he calls people Something Persons.
- Original Character: Third most popular one according to a poll.
- Parental Abandonment: This is how he became a goblin. Jareth babysitted the poor kid but nobody came to bring him home.
- Put on a Bus: If you are really interested look on the Many Faces... page
- Stylistic Suck / Wanton Cruelty to the Common Comma: His speech pattern. See for yourself!
- Canon: ???. Roommates possibly.
(Minions of the Erlkönig? Or maybe depends on who casted the shadows.)
- Animal Motifs / Mythical Motifs: As they manifest as animals or mythical beings connected to the characters. To date we saw:
- Canis Major: Odin (his is literally a shadow Fenrir).
- Dragons Up the Yin Yang: Mr. Saito.
- Noble Bird of Prey: James' is a hawk.
- Noble Wolf: Javert
- Our Dragons Are Different: Arthur Pendragon.
- Ominous Owl: Jareth.
- Panthera Awesome: Erik.
- Animal Stereotypes: And the rest. Sarah's is a swan. And shock of all shocks... The Erkönig's shadow is human.
- Bond Creatures: They can act like this. The Erlkönig lent their power to the cast in Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On. They share their motifs and can turn their partners into an Animal Themed Superbeings.
- Living Shadow: Can appear as these if they aren't granted full autonomy (or are bound to people if you wish) so overlaps with The Shadow Knows.
- Monochromatic Eyes: Can also happen to their partners if they channel their knowledge or power.
- Pure Magic Being: They are literally made of tangible shadows.
- Shadow Archetype: Seems like (if the beginning of The Wild Hunt arc is any indication, where Jareth summons them as to be Enemy Without prey) they are literally this, summoned by Casting a Shadow from people's shadows in a form that represents their inner darkness.
- Canon: Everything listed on Savage Wolves really.
- Savage Wolves: The bloodthistiest and savagest in all fiction. They were the Wargs in the works of Tolkien now serving the White Queen.
- Talking Animal: Well, yes, they can talk.
- We Used to Be Friends: Their notion towards the Goblins. And yes. Thanks to Canon Welding in this crossover world they indeed were.
- Canon: The Bible and beyond...
- Kraken and Leviathan: Obviously.
- Our Dragons Are Different: Giant sea snake dragon thing old testament style!
