Kivouackians

    In General 
The ageless denizens of a dead universe who now live on Earth, staying out of the sight of humans, trying to rebuild their civilization, but mostly just getting on each other's nerves.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Most of them don't wear more than a few articles of clothing like Lucy's hat or Wexle's vest, with the exception of Ludwig and Fontaine, who wear full suits and coats.
  • Action Girl: Considering how Kivouackian society is organized, any female in a high-ranking position is this by default, with Winifred (in her current state) and possibly Yeshua's girls as the sole exception.
  • Aerith and Bob: "Lucy", "Ed", "Felicity", and "Dorothy" are all fairly common human names. "Shuck", "Wexle", "Helgan", and "Yeshua", not so much.
  • The Ageless: If Lucy's comments are to be taken at face value, they literally do not age or die of natural causes.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: They're certainly a (no pun intended) very colorful group, ranging from pink (Helgan) and light lavender (Quinn) to dark red (Yeshua), blue, or white with red or blue patches.
  • Animalistic Abomination: Most of the Kivouackians (including all of those at Sullivan's house but Hyzenthlay) move around on all fours and have traits of various Earth creatures.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: The Kivouackians can be dismembered and reassembled without any lasting harm, apparently heal from any wounds, and some of them have apparent semi-magic powers (like Lucy's ability to shapeshift into a cloud of flies.) Not to mention that there's so much variation in size, shape, and form among them that none of them look like they're even a part of the same species. It's been made explicit one of the few things that stay consistent between them is having three umbilical cords, and thus three belly-buttons.
  • Bizarre Alien Reproduction: It's not made entirely clear, but their reproductive habits seem to be strange. From how often it happens it seems some manner of mutilation is basically a must, even if only for arousal to happen.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Killing (and beheading) other creatures, eating their mates, violence in general are all seemingly considered acceptable, if not necessary, by the average Kivouachian. When confronted about an attack on Hyzenthlay, Lucy protests that she's merely living up to her nature, and that it's the others who are behaving aberrantly.
  • Bright Is Not Good: Most of the pure white or mostly white Kivouackians are also the most overtly violent or malicious in nature (Lucy, Dorothy, Locket, Shale.)
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Conversely, most of the black or darker-colored Kivouackians are very easygoing, friendly, and well-intentioned (Fleischer, Shuck, and Wexle.)
  • Extra Eyes: Fleischer, Yeshua, Hayden, Quinn, Mystique, and Hayden all have at least three.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Available in both bipedal and bestial flavors.
  • Four Legs Good, Two Legs Better: It's subtle, but the bipedal Kivouackians (Ludwig, Fontaine, Wexle, Yeshua, Locket) seem to be higher up on the totem pole than the ones who walk around on all fours or have more overtly animalistic posture.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Most of the (bipedal) Kivouackians don't wear full outfits, most of the quadripedal ones don't wear anything at all.
  • Healing Factor: A possible explanation for Winifred and Wexle both having survived multiple beheadings by Lucy. In fact, this may be a regular Kivouachian trait; Quinn states that Lucy can "rip off her arm and chew on it, then pop it back on like nothing happened".
  • Losing Your Head: They seem to treat being decapitated as the rough equivalent to being knocked unconscious, and apparently they can lose and regrow other limbs just as easily. It hasn't yet been clarified whether they just regrow the lost body part from scratch, or if Sullivan's comments are to be taken literally in that their missing heads and limbs have to be placed back on the body and then the separated pieces knit themselves together.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Most of the quadripedal ones have traits from multiple different Earth animals. Just to name a few, Felicity is basically just a winged donkey, Quinn resembles a furry axolotl, and Dorothy looks like a cross between a beluga whale and a komodo dragon.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Almost every single Kivouackian has a massive set of chompers that would make a shark jealous - and like a shark, they apparently shed them (or at least Lucy does) fast enough that it causes problems for Sullivan's vacuum cleaner.
  • Monstrous Cannibalism: Although none of them look like they're even members of the same species, cannibalism is apparently quite common among Kivouackians. Helgan casually mentions that she ate several of her former mates.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Many of them have more than four limbs, including extra arms, multiple tails, or tentacles, and those who do are all quite dangerous, with the exception of Quinn.
  • Multinational Team: In addition to Sullivan's estate in England, the Kivouackians have a settlement in Las Vegas (Yeshua's territory) and possibly another in Scotland. All of them seem to report to Ludwig's authority.
  • The Needless: Lucy explains to Hyzenthlay that they don't actually need to sleep. They do eat and drink, but whether they actually need to do so or whether they just enjoy eating has not been clarified.
  • Nipple and Dimed: Averted with Wexle and Shale.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: Zig-zagged. Most if not all of the (bipedal) female Kivouackians have humanlike breasts, but they are fairly mammalian in appearance. The zig-zag comes in when you remember that the ones who look like mammals and the ones who don't (like the reptilian Fleischer and Shale, the piscine Dorothy, and whatever the hell Locket qualifies as) are all actually members of the same species.
  • Non-Humans Lack Attributes: Especially odd because unlike most examples of this trope, in Kivouackian society Everybody Has Lots of Sex - the character models just don't have the, well, equipment to do it with.
  • Pantsless Males, Fully-Dressed Females: Inverted. Of the bipedal Kivouackians, the males (Ludwig, Fontaine, Yeshua) tend to wear more clothing than the females (Helgan, Luna, Mystique), who usually only wear either one article or clothing on their upper torso or nothing at all.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Apparently a common trait between them all. Sullivan complains during episode #23 that whenever a Kivouackian gets KO'd it comes all the way out, leaving a drooly mess everywhere, and sure enough, in the same episode we see that exact same thing happen.
  • Time Abyss: They all outlived their own universe, and have been hanging around in this one for a long, long time afterwards.
  • Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: Several of them have more than the usual four limbs and a tail, which is a pretty clear signature of the fact that they're not from Earth.

Sullivan's Estate

    In General 
At a manor in rural England lives a man called Sullivan with a menagerie of Kivouackians, which seems to include a number of the most powerful and infamous from their former society. How exactly they came to meet Sullivan and operate at his house has not yet been fully revealed.
  • Country Matters: Sullivan and Lucy are particularly fond of the word (see below trope.)
  • Cluster F-Bomb: While none of them are terribly averse to swearing, Lucy, Shuck, and Sullivan are the most foul-mouthed by far.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite their sinister appearances, Fleischer and Shuck are actually among the nicest and most well-meaning of the Kivouackians, although the latter doesn't always show it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: The only one of them who doesn't unleash razor-tongued commentary on the others on a regular basis is Hyzenthlay. (And, uh, Winifred, for obvious reasons.)
  • Dysfunction Junction: Let's see...you have a blind Cute Mute who cuts herself out of stress, a morose jackass with a violent past, a lab-experiment amnesiac squirrel, an unstable sociopath who constantly talks about wanting to dismember and mutilate the others, their human host, who's possibly even crazier than the demons infesting his house, and Fleischer, who's actually pretty normal and well-adjusted.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Winifred is missing a horn, and one of Shuck's is split at the end.
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: The main regular cast has three females (Lucy, Winifred, and Hyzenthlay) and three males (Fleischer, Shuck, and Sullivan). There's also four of each if you count Ludwig and Wexle as regulars.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Lucy, so very much. Shuck and Sullivan aren't far behind her, considering how they apparently killed over a dozen people in the process of trying to get a Halloween pumpkin.

    Sullivan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sullivan_satellitecity.jpg
"...And what the fiddly fuck is goin' on here?"

"What a fuckin' useless bunch of cunts we are."

The somewhat hapless host to the Kivouackians on Earth, and their go-between for dealing with the rest of human society.


  • Deadpan Snarker: While his erstwhile houseguests are no slouches themselves in the smart aleck department, Sullivan stands out by holding his own against these ageless, carnivorous, merciless beings by sheer virtue of sarcasm alone.
    Sullivan: Lucy, I'm about to carve the pumpkin, do you want to assist me? Beat And by assist, I mean, watch, because you are not going anywhere near, a fucking knife.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Considering that all the Kivouackians could arguably qualify for Cthulhu status, and he spends the vast majority of his time tossing insults at them, pretty much every single interaction he has with the Kivouackians would qualify as this. Especially given that not only does he not tone things down around Helgan, who could quite easily crush him like a bug if she wanted to, but directs most of his insults in reference to the fact that she's so huge.
    Helgan: Will I be granted my proper station in the city? I expect so.
    Sullivan: If all goes well, I'm inclined to fuckin' agree with ya! I don't want ya in my forest any longer than I need to! You sat on the new shoots, they're not growin' back, ya big fuckin' cunt!
  • First-Name Basis / Last-Name Basis: He's only ever called "Sullivan" by the Kivouachians, which is equally plausible as a given or family name. But as his home is specifically referred to as the "Croft estate", his name could be Sullivan Croft note .
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Although not as much as Lucy, Sullivan is occasionally but strongly implied to be a borderline serial killer. When Lucy and Wexle are arguing, Sullivan ominously complains about having to be the one who "deals with" a group of teenagers who saw Lucy and Wexle (while holding a rather large knife) and has committed spree murder on at least two occasions just to avoid paying for a Jack-o-Lantern. In "Hello Stranger", he enters wearing a stylish top hat which he casually admits to stealing from a child.
  • Hidden Depths: He seems to be a rather talented ukulele player, and even entertains Winifred with a song while she's reading at Christmastime.
  • Knife Nut: See the picture of him up there?
  • Mysterious Past: We actually know even ''less' about him than we do about the Kivouackians. How he met and started working with them - and why they didn't just kill him immediately upon discovery - is so far a complete mystery.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: He has a penchant for waistcoats and top hats.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: While most of the characters swear abundantly, Sullivan hardly lets a sentence go by without saying "fuck" or "cunt".
  • The Quisling: Arguably qualifies as this, since he's harboring a group of extradimensional monsters bent on altering Earth's fauna into fully-intelligent rivals to humanity- with only the excuse that he finds the world "a dull landscape of dimwits and self-extinction".
  • Token Human: He's the only human character who's appeared more than briefly, and apparently the only one who Ludwig is willing to work with.

    Lucy Lacemaker 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_f4470055cb024fd9b80751975f0ce890mv2.png
"'Cowards die many times before their deaths.' Good old Shakespeare."

"A head's just a hat for your torso!"

A former judge of the Kivouack, and also a completely unhinged violent maniac.


  • Been There, Shaped History: It's revealed in passing that she was known to the humans as "Loki". Another time Shuck mentions she and him tried to make old school black strap rum after running out in 1740 and burnt down half of London in the process.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Quite understandably. Winifred and Hyzenthlay are constantly abused by her, Fleischer hates her for hurting Winifred, Sullivan complains about having to clean up after her messes, and Ludwig (not inaccurately) calls her a "liability." The only one who actually seems to enjoy spending time with her is Shuck, and even he gets exasperated at her rudeness towards Felicity.
    Ludwig: Every day, more and more, my patience for you dies. Don't turn the few friends you have against you.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: So very much. Her very first line in the whole series is "Are we eating Hyzenthlay tonight?"
  • Hidden Depths: Has an encyclopedic memory of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, to the point that when Hyzenthlay is reading it and has trouble pronouncing cephalopod, Lucy is able to determine the word (and provide definition and origin) without reading the page or asking for clarification.
    • Sam has also implied that she may be a lot weaker than she lets off, which will possibly be touched up on in the upcoming novel The August Few.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her constant insulting, toying with, and threatening of Hyzenthlay, she gives her a very earnest speech in the Episode "Slice of Life", also reassuring her that her insult earlier in the episode might have been under the influence of alcohol. There's also a moment in "The Order of Things" where she gives Hyzenthlay a genuine kiss when she thinks Lucy is going to bite her face.
    Lucy: How could you be smaller than that which you are?
  • Killer Rabbit: She's only about the size of a large cat.
  • Light Is Not Good: She's pure white with red markings and is pretty much a bloodthirsty sociopath.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Even by the standards of Kivouackian society, Lucy is nuts.
  • Really Gets Around: Her list of conquests seems to be about as long as her list of murders (if it doesn't involve the same people.)

    Winifred 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_0baa3ed21d594f35b4d7b5519ae74ab9mv2.png

"..."

Once the Grand Whisperer to Grand Voice Locket, Winifred is now a haunted, traumatized shadow of herself, unable - or unwilling - even to speak. Lucy takes great pleasure in mocking and abusing Winifred for it, while Fleischer conversely does his best to protect her.

    Shuck 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_04c096b2484140b280209398fbd83f80mv2.png
"My bloodletting days are behind me."

"Well, fuck-a-doodle-doo. Look who's finally awake."

A veteran of the Yolsh (Locket's army in the glory days of the Kivouack), Shuck now spends his days drinking with and snarking at Lucy and Fleischer.


    Fleischer 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_118b9888cc29438fac35975bd4af272cmv2.png
"We all have shadows at our heels. But you need not let them consume you. You need only turn on the light."

"You're all fucked in the head!"

Winifred's self-appointed protector from Lucy's abuse, Fleischer frequently finds himself the lone voice of reason among the household, with the possible exception of Sullivan. (Sometimes especially Sullivan.)


  • Nice Guy: Albeit a rather sarcastic one, but you can't much blame him, considering who he lives with. Otherwise he's a total sweetheart, especially around Winifred.
  • Made a Slave: Hinted at in his backstory: he was made to be Winifred's "plaything" instead of being executed for whatever crime he committed.
  • Only Sane Man: Certainly the only one at Croft Estate who's never been prone to harming himself or others. Best exemplified when he discovers Dorothy's headless body chained and hanging up in the shed:
    Fleischer: Why do I leave you guys alone for five minut- (Cut to credits)
  • Our Dragons Are Different: He (presumably) can't breathe fire, he's about the size of a large dog, and he has Extra Eyes, but otherwise he appears a fairly traditional dragon in design.
  • Papa Wolf: Very protective of Winifred (and occasionally Hyzenthlay) from Lucy and Ludwig.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: He is, at the very least, extremely protective of Winifred, and she seems to enjoy his company enough that they spend most of their time together. Whether his feelings for her are purely platonic nature, or indicative of something else (and whether the feeling is mutual on her part) has not been clarified.
  • Reformed Criminal: Heavily downplayed, but according to the lore website, he committed an unspecified "serious crime" in the past. Nowadays he's probably the nicest member of the cast.
  • The Smart Guy: He's quite well-read, understands Braille, and (if Shuck is to be believed) educated enough to quote Oscar Wilde on a regular basis.
  • Team Mom: Fleischer seems to have taken onto himself the unenviable responsibility of trying to keep order in Sullivan's house, whether it's helping him with dinner, passing on Ludwig's orders to Shuck, or keeping Winifred from being tortured (either from Lucy or from herself.)
  • Token Good Teammate: He's the only full Kivouackian at Sullivan's estate who's never been much of a killer or a Jerkass.

    Hyzenthlay 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_67008a74a4464969bac4e2a49ad9d9fdmv2.png
"So is this it, then? Am I just an experiment to you?"

"I've seen squirrels. They do look a little similar, but how am I one of them?"

A seemingly ordinary ground squirrel, Hyzenthlay is the sole resident of Sullivan's estate (other than the man himself) who's not a Kivouackian, and yet nevertheless seems to play a deceptively important role in their plans for Earth.


  • The Ingenue: She's very soft-spoken, naive, and reserved.
  • No Respect Girl: Not being a full-blooded Kivouackian, she's frequently (no pun intended) looked down upon by the others, who see her at best as a useful test tube project and at worst as little more than a toy to be played with.

    Xander 

The latest in a long string of hapless gardeners under Sullivan's employ.

Ludwig and associates

     In General 

    Ludwig 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_bcc21fe57b334d649c855da263439698mv2.png
"If the sheep averts its gaze from the forest, the wolf will strike it dead at its back."

"Let us in, Sullivan, we've been out here so long, we're in danger of photosynthesizing."

The leader of the surviving Kivouackian government on Earth, Ludwig takes his duties very seriously. Sometimes too seriously for the others' tastes.


  • The Chains of Commanding: The burden of his high-ranking position weighs heavily on him, and oftentimes he seems not to enjoy the things he feels he has to do.
  • Fantastic Racism: He's very dismissive of humans and their culture, referring to them as "simians" and criticizing the others for something as simple as enjoying human traditions like Christmas.
  • Hidden Depths: Possibly. In spite of the above trope, Sullivan finds a photograph of a human woman on Ludwig's desk, the implications of which are fairly clear, and site lore mentions he was in a relationship with a woman in the 1700s. His attitude's more complicated than it may seem.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: He's nine-foot-six, so if he really did love a human woman at some point, their relationship was this by default.
  • King of Beasts: It's subtle, but his coloration, clothing, and large mane of hair make him strongly resemble a bipedal lion, appropriate for the chosen leader of a race of ageless animal-demons. His Season 2 redesign gives him an even larger and poofier mane (and a slightly feline face) that makes him look even more leonine.
  • Large and in Charge: He's the tallest Kivouackian in the regular cast, easily filling the doorway of Sullivan's home, and is the leader of their government. (Interestingly, he still bosses Helgan around even though she's easily twice his size at least.)
  • Not So Above It All: His hatred of "simian traditions" apparently does not extend to British dessert pastries.
    Sullivan: (passing Lucy a tin of biscuits) And don't let Ludwig eat them all, because you all know what he's like once he's had a fuckin' biscuit.
  • The Social Darwinist: The Kivouack as a whole exemplifies this attitude, but Ludwig exemplifies it to the greatest extent since, as the one in charge of its surviving government, he's the one responsible for turning that abstract philosophy into concrete policy.
    Ludwig: Life is but a pyramid.
    Ludwig: Me.
    • It even applies to his plans. Ludwig's plan to splice Kiouvackian genetics into all is partly because he feels humanity hasn't proved itself at all, what with being the only thinking species on Earth, so uplifting everything else ought to give them some proper competition; if they die out, it was about time.
  • The Stoic: Ludwig takes himself (and pretty much everything else) very seriously, and has basically two modes: ruthless professionalism and righteous anger.

     Wexle 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_9a6eed201bc6465d9eb2ceb5605b5697mv2.png
"You're such a misery, Ludwig! We needed a break!"

"Don't start, you sadistic carpet-crawler!"

Ludwig's second-in-command of sorts, Wexle is usually sweet and gentle but a mighty warrior when she needs to be.


     Fontaine 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_5447d913d2264a22969d33460ef22eabmv2.png
"A good distraction from the bleak reality of our situation."

"And thus I was an outlaw no more! I simply legitimized my trade, dear girl."

One of the oldest Kivouackians yet seen, Fontaine is Ludwig's assistant, advisor, and mentor all at once.


  • Badass Grandpa: He's the oldest member of the main cast, and still a capable warrior.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Just how his face looks, really. Complete with too many teeth.
  • Cool Old Guy: Despite his age, he's still a hell of a fighter, a gambler, a dancer (according to the lore website) and really just an all-around swell guy.
  • Honest Advisor: Fontaine's not at all afraid to tell Ludwig that he's wrong about something to his face.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He has six arms and is a dangerous enough fighter that Helgan, who is easily three times his size, backs down rather than face a scuffle with him.
  • Nice Guy: Quite possibly the most jovial, friendly, and easygoing person in the entire cast.
  • Older Sidekick: To Ludwig.
  • The Smart Guy: He's shown reading the children's book that Fleischer got Winifred for Christmas, indicating that he can read Braille like Fleischer does.

     Quinn 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_3f0d6d566d8b4c78ae9bd3c7ad09abbdmv2.png
"Surely humans can't be a threat, can they?"

"Uh, excuse me, but am I interrupting something?"

Ludwig's painfully shy, somewhat hapless courier, who carries messages between the Kivouackian settlements.


  • Bearer of Bad News: His official job description. He's the one who arrives at Sullivan's estate to tell the others that "it got out."
  • Butt-Monkey: Nothing seems to go right for Quinn. He's pushed around by the others, runs a very thankless job, and gets shot by a human farmer (which is far more dangerous for him than it is for most Kivouackians because his natural Healing Factor is defective.)

     Helgan 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d9f913_6e1324f30c724e2e95dca94f1b9e59fbmv2.png
"We're all prisoners, in one way or another. We're just chained to different masters."

"Fuck off, Croft!"

Another of Ludwig's lieutenants, with a rather high opinion of herself.


     Hayden 

     Dorothy 

     Locket 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/locket_season_2_episode_2.jpg
"I have so much to give. But first I must take."

"It entertains my senses and dulls the pain. I'd like another."

The old Grand Voice, back when Kiouvack itself existed. Apparently imprisoned on some manner, then later released. Opinions on her among the remaining Kiouvackians are heavily divided.


  • Humanoid Abomination: Certainly not nearly as much as Jones, but she's still not entirely cooperating with our current reality. Whatever part of her imprisonment that left her looking shattered and fragmented couldn't have helped.

     Shale 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shale2_satellitecity.png
"Fall back to the balcony! We'll deal with this bitch."

     Hux 

Other Kivouackians in England

     Felicity 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/felicity_yt_community_1_month_ii.png
"So much to remember and so much to do and say, and so many places to visit!"

"Do you think ducks like chickens? Or is it some sort of, like, ehhh, you know, fighting, war sort of thing, like dogs and cats, you know? Ducks and chickens? No? Maybe not."

Swiftest of the kivouackians and another messenger for the community, the only thing faster than Felicity's legs is her mouth. She is, to say the least, a bit odd.


  • Adorkable:
  • An Arm and a Leg: She's missing her right wing, her left front leg, and a chunk from her left ear.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: She's delighted upon spotting a common duck at the estate, while Shuck is trying to show her the more unusual finches and kestrels.
  • Genki Girl
  • Motor Mouth
  • Handicapped Badass: Lacking a leg and a wing doesn't apparently slow her down in the slightest.
    Felicity: Come ON! You've got double my limbs, why are you SO. SLOW?
  • Hidden Depths: Despite her upbeat and friendly disposition, Felicity harbors resentment against Lucy for abandoning her in the past and still treating her cruelly.
  • Old Flame: It's strongly hinted that she was The One That Got Away to Shuck years ago, but she eventually runs into him again to catch up on old times. When Felicity is tasked with journeying to Scotland to deliver a message to Yeshua, Shuck immediately volunteers to join her so he can protect her.

     Holly 
A rabbit-like messenger for Ludwig.

  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Holly is killed by Locket in the same episode she made her debut in.

     Maargit 
A black and white, human-esque Kivouackian who meets up with Quinn after he gets shot.

     Cascade 

     Dizzy Jones 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hello_there_mister_jones.png
"I've got your SCENT."

One of the most feared Kivouackians who ever lived, equal if not superior to Locket herself in power and strength. He was...somehow involved in the utter collapse of the Kiouvackians' previous society as well as the Kiouvack itself; not a single one is happy when they learn he has escaped.


  • The Dreaded: Everyone who knows him truly, even Lucy (who loved him once), is quite afraid of him running about once more. You know he's bad news when Ludwig starts getting freaked out and practically puts the whole estate on lockdown.
  • Hero Killer: Of a sort. It's known he was involved in wrecking the Kiouvack, at least. And Winnifred used to be proud, powerful and very high up in the hierarchy of the Kiouvackians, which respects strength above all; all this lasted until Jones happened to her, leaving her in her current state.
  • Horrifying the Horror: The Kivouackians are an entire race of Animalistic Abominations that can heal from nearly any wound, organize their society by violence and are strongly implied to have shaped many of mankind's myths and ghost stories. Dizzy Jones is the guy they tell ghost stories about.
  • Humanoid Abomination: The worst of 'em all. He has abilities no other creature from Kiouvack shows, and even they repeatedly call him a thing rather than one of them. And it looks very much humanoid in a slithering, stretched-out kind of way, which combined with his screwing with electronics may remind you a lot of someone else.
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: All over the place whenever he shows up, and his voice imitations are given away by the fact they're warped to hell and back by distortion.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Even to his own species, from the looks of it. All the political intrigues there could be back before this universe utterly collapsed when this menace came for them, and to the current civil war and Earth itself Mandus just seems to be an entirely alien problem, with an utterly perpendicular agenda of which we've only seen widespread destruction and individual torment.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: His nickname is less than threatening, especially compared to his actual name. Sullivan spends most of episode 13 discussing how un-threatening he finds it.
  • Voice Changeling: Only through electronic devices, but he can imitate voices to draw in his quarry.

Foreign Kivouackians

     Luna 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luna_satellitecity.png
"I'm Whisper to Fontaine, and I don't serve turncoats."

"Let me get this straight, so I don't go fucking mad right here now."

    Yeshua 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yeshua_updated_design.png
"All I know is when fuckers can't handle grief, they turn to easy ways out."

"Eh, pour me a fuckin' drink, Darling, I'll tell ya all."

     Bob 
  • Affectionate Nickname: Calls Luna "Mama Blue".
  • All Take and No Give: Being a failed experiment of Kivouackian hybridization, Bob was incapable of love nor understanding it. He was the cause of Luna's sleepless nights, demanding attention from her, and kept her from doing her duties Fontaine had left her to do in his absence.
  • Rule of Symbolism: According to Word of God, Bob represents the toxic relationship one has with drugs, alcohol and fake relationships.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He, Luna, and Yeshua are introduced in the 20th episode, and in the climax of that same episode, Yeshua throws him into a furnace and he explodes.

     Mystique 

     Titania
