Main Characters

    Rhea Snaketail
A Jerk with a Heart of Gold Jakkai, with a less than healthy skepticism regarding anything supernatural. The story kicks off after her death.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: In spades. It's all but spelled out that this is part of the reason she ended up in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Despite that, she holds on to it after her return to Medius, in part because her village was rather isolated.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Her father is Moonshade.
  • Back from the Dead: Word of God has confirmed that she is alive again.
  • Celibate Hero: Admits to J after leaving St. Curtis that she's not currently interested in romance when they ask if she's in a throuple with Buwaro and Kieri.
  • Cool Big Sis: Agrees to take this role for Buwaro. Later she does the same for Kieri.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: As is revealed in this comic, when Rhea was a child, her sister fell into a fast-moving river and drowned, despite Rhea's desperate prayers for Gaia and the Guardians to save her. The experience turned her into a Naytheist and was likely the beginning of her becoming a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
  • Dead to Begin With: As noted, the story begins with her arriving in the afterlife.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Frequently and often, mostly directed at Kieri.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her Terra Spike spell.
  • Dramatic Irony: She sees "Moku" (aka Moonshade) fighting Melli at St. Curtis shortly before the demons attack. Much later, she gets conformation from Darius that she was killed for being the descendant of Moku the Snake Guardian. Had Moonshade not been asleep and had both his eyes open when she saw him at the Coiled Cobra, Rhea would have instantly figured out who her killer was.
  • Fish out of Water: Her village was very traditional and isolated, so she tends to be a bit shocked when learning that things like merfolk are real, which plays into her Arbitrary Skepticism.
  • The Gadfly: While Rhea does have her serious moments, she's more frequently playful and willing to poke fun at the party's foibles, especially J's. She knows where the line's drawn, though.
  • Hellish Pupils: Her eyes become snake-like after she drinks the yellow potion, later they change again (though quite not to the same extent) when she expresses annoyance at the Sinclairs for taking the jakkai egg.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Her failure to prevent Kieri's capture lowered her self-worth and now thinks she doesn't deserve to have her injuries healed.
  • Inept Mage: As a Jakkai, she has basically only one spell she can use. When she takes the magic-boosting potion, however...
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Being one (albeit a bit heavy on the "jerk" part) is why she ended up in Hell in the first place: she's rude, sassy, and frequently grumpy, but she's also very protective of her friends and ultimately good-hearted and well-intentioned.
  • Made of Iron: Holy. CRAP. In order, Rhea was beaten and thrashed around by Abyset, got hit with some pretty strong attacks by Lazuli, got caught in the middle of a Bar Brawl between demons, jumped off a high-speed wagon and landed face-first, got smacked across the ground HARD by Berserk Lazuli, and collapses from exhaustion after using her newfound Guardian powers to severely injure Lazuli - all in a single day. And she's perfectly fine a few days later. No bandages, casts or anything. Keep in mind, that 1.) She isn't a demon, and 2.) she didn't even drink the Rainbow Reverie potion that would have given her increased defense (the purple one).
  • Meaningful Name: As with all Jakkai, her last name states something about her appearance. In this case, it's her long tail. It's also one of many hints that she is Moonshade's daughter, and has Moku's powers like him. Her first name also provides some hints.
  • Never My Fault: Gets a moment of this early in the story after she is mauled to death by berserk Buwaro, she is questioning why she should be apologizing to him and still insults him but the only reason he went berserk was because she stole his star pendant just to mock him.
  • Naytheist: While Rhea believes in the existence of the guardians and the gods, she doesn't have a lot of faith in them, and ranges from indifferent to contemptuous when it comes to religious matters. She attributes this to her Cynicism Catalyst, when her sister drowned despite Rhea's prayers to Gaia and the Guardians to save her. Ironically, she turns out to be the granddaughter of one of the Guardians, specifically Moku the snake.
  • Running on All Fours: She, like all Jakkai, will drop to all fours when she needs to move quickly.
  • Scaled Up: After drinking the magic enhancing yellow potion, she gains snake features and an immense boost in magic power. This also confirms that she's one of Moku's descendants. Even after the potion wears off, her tongue is permantly forked like a snake's.
  • Scars are Forever: She has a scar in the place where she was stabbed, on her chest.
  • Semi-Divine: Related to Moku, the Earth snake Guardian. Specifically his granddaughter according to Darius.
  • Significant Wardrobe Shift: After learning that she's decended from Moku, she starts wearing a hood with Moku emblazoned on the back.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: She has yellow (yellow gold?) eyes and is a descendant the the guardian Moku and is potentially capable of very powerful magic. According to her father Moonshade, she inherited them from her mother which he describes as "eyes like the sun".
  • Superspeed: She gets this after she drinks the blue Rainbow Reverie potion. She is able to catch up with a horse pulled wagon.

The less than intelligent demon given charge of Rhea during her stay in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Starts off insufferably cute and naive, but slowly matures as the comic progresses.
  • Aroused by Their Voice: Buwaro has a shockingly good singing voice as shown in this page, despite the fact that he probably had never sang before in his life. Kieri blushes and gives him a hug after hearing him sing.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Passive and harmless as he is, there's been at least one time where he became legitimately violent without going into berserk mode. Don't hurt Kieri around him.
  • Breath Weapon: Like all Fire Demons, though he rarely uses it, likely because his isn't very potent.
  • Childhood Brain Damage: Buwaro's frequent blows to the head (failed rock catches) might go some way to explain his lack of intelligence, but there are other factors, such as damage to his egg before birth and being left alone for long periods of time.
  • Cain and Abel: He is the Abel to Iratu's Cain.
  • Cumbersome Claws: While not that sharp, having claws instead of fingers does make things like writing a little tricky.
  • Cute Little Fangs: When his mouth is usually closed or not detailed.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Gender-flipped, obviously.
  • The Ditz: Initially. He's become much sharper over the course of the story, though he still has some Ditz moments.
  • Fictional Disability: Buwaro's birth defect, making him psycho/physio-logically different from normal demons. He's naturally always in a Berzerk State. His necklace is what keeps him in check.
  • Fish out of Water: Very much so, although he's somewhat better about it than he used to be.
  • Happily Adopted:
    • More after the fact. He was too young to know Darius, the angel who protected him, Iratu and Sakido. But when Kieri read the diary Darius had kept (it was written in the Angelic language, which Buwaro and Rhea didn't know but supposedly Sakido somehow did), and the group realized some of the lengths he went to for their sake, Buwaro came to see him as his father.
    • Right before they escaped Hell and she died, Sakido asked Rhea to be the big sister for Buwaro that she never was.
  • Hated by All: Not with any of the Median characters, but the amount of demons who haven't tried to kill him at one point or another is very short. Especially after revealing Sakido's death to a group of them later in the comic.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts to pull one off for Kieri's sake. Fortunately, he recovered.
  • Informed Deformity: More than one person has called him ugly, and it was enough to make him self-conscious about it for a little while, but his status as a Cute Monster Boy doesn't give any of it much leverage.
  • Invisible Parents: They were both killed during the war. They do actually make appearances, but by the time we've seen both of them, they're both already dead.
  • Lightning Bruiser: After he drinks the red Rainbow Reverie potion and goes partially berserk he is fast enough to catch up to a wagon that had a head start and is large and strong enough to bite into Lazuli and through her off the wagon.
  • Living Toys: Some non-canon artwork depicts him as a giant living plushy with a zipper that can be opened to let a person fit inside of him.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Demons punish the dead (usually by torture) for the sins they committed during life. The cruelest thing he's ever done on purpose was stomp on Rhea's tail. He even asked Death (who was actually Darius in disguise) if this was OK before he did it. Rhea proceeded to beat him up in return.
    • And once again during chapter 9 when he pretends to have been deceiving Kieri, but when he tries to come up an insult for the angel he remembers the pleasant time he had with her and starts to tear up.
  • Magic Pants: Getting severely electrocuted by Denevol ruined all of his clothing except for his pants, much to Rhea's relief.
  • Naytheist: Becomes convinced that both Gaia and Syndel have waged far too much war, and don't deserve worship.
  • Never Learned to Read: Didn't have much opportunity to, growing up all alone in the Ring of the Slightly Damned. Though Kieri is currently teaching him.
  • Only One Name: Averted. His last name is Elexion.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: You KNOW he's pissed at someone when he actively starts a fight by punching them in the ribs.
  • Playing with Fire: He's a fire demon, so this is natural. Of course, he's still learning how to control it. His berserk form uses it much more effectively.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Averted mostly. His eyes are always red (and he can make them glow a brighter red to see in the dark), but they're completely non-indicative of his personality. His berserk form has them by default, though, and the trope is very much in effect when that happens.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: In general appearance he greatly resembles his mother but with his father's eyes and (reversed) colors while some of his features (horns and ears) are theirs blended together.
    • According to this AU comic if his parents (or at least his mother) lived to nurse and raise him he would have a more even blending of their features such as a longer neck and muzzle as well as larger more curved claws.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: In fact, it's technically his default personality (he was even born that way). It's only due to Darius's medallion that he has a more normal self.
  • Superspeed: When in a potion induced berserk state note  he is able to quickly catch up to the horse drawn wagon holding Kieri and other captive angels despite it have a head start and shortly after he is is able to keep up with Rhea after she drinks a potion that gives her Superspeed of her own.
  • Sweet Tooth: He hasn't found food he doesn't like but his favorite is sweet things like chocolate qnd cookies.
  • Taking the Bullet: Pushed Kieri out of the way of an attack meant for her.
  • Unaffected by Spice: He's able to eat the very spicy red honey of the firebee with no ill effects due to his nature as a fire demon, which are naturally immune to fire and extreme heat.

    Kieri "Snowy" Suizahn
A young angel currently lost in Medius. She's socially awkward, due to her troubled upbringing. Despite this, she's the most competent of the three when it comes to combat.
  • Abusive Parents: Was physically and verbally abused by her mother.
  • Action Girl: Compared to Buwaro or Rhea, Kieri is easily the most combat-capable member of the group, being both an able magic user and skilled in swordplay.
  • Berserker Tears: On page 832, when she finally kills Lazuli.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. By the end of the St. Curtis arc on page 832 she's scared, bloody, and burned from her fight with Lazuli.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Although normally sweet and shy, she does lose her temper from time to time. Also, she's the only one of the protagonists (exempting Buwaro's Superpowered Evil Side) to have intentionally killed someone in a fight.
  • Cute Bruiser: That sword of hers isn't for opening letters...
  • Elective Mute: Downplayed. Kieri has Selective Mutism which makes it difficult for her to speak when emotional distressed. Tellingly, after her fight with her brother as they leave St. Curtis, she's almost constantly silent.
  • Forced Transformation: Toski turned her into a snow bunny, though it wasn't applied properly and she has some control over it.
  • Friendless Background: She was often excluded from games by the other warrior angels because of her shy demeanor and lack of prowess while the caretakee angels were intimidated by her warrior status and kept their distance. In fact the reason she learnt lingo in the first place was to try and find friends among the medians... it didn't work.
  • Healing Hands: When Buwaro is dying after taking an energy attack from a Seraph intended for her, she desperately tries to use healing magic on him, though she has little experience with it. The way she uses it makes it look like a Magical Defibrillator, too. Miraculously, she succeeds at reviving him. It has been implied that she actually is better at it than she thinks she is, due to her self-esteem issues. According to her brother, she is better at it than he is. After several of her friends are wounded in battle, she heals them quite easily, although in this case their wounds were not nearly as serious as what had previously happened to Buwaro.
  • Heroic BSoD: She's pushed to the brink of her sanity in the St. Curtis arc. Starting with the mutual genocide between the angels and demons, she gets worse and worse as her brother (who she had just reunited with) doesn't trust her, her kind gets rounded up as sacrifices, and breaks into Berserker Tears on page 832 as she's forced to kill Lazuli.
  • An Ice Person: Her preferred method of magic.
  • Making a Splash: Used less often than her ice powers, but she still has this.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In page 863. It takes a heart of 24 carat gold to wonder if LAZULI truly deserved to die.
  • No Self-Buffs: Kieri is asked when her scars are revealed why she didn't heal them, and again Buwaro tells her to heal herself next, she starts crying. It's possible she can't heal herself.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When Kazai wants to save the other angels and insinuates that Kieri doesn't care about them when she shows reluctance her shy, timid demeanor disappears and she very sternly tells Kazai the problems with his plan without any emotion on her face.
  • Partial Transformation: Only manages to partially push through the curse to save Rhea.
  • Poor Communication Kills: One cannot blame her for being mad at Kazai after he attacks Buwaro, but after he joins her group, she actively ignores him and refuses to acknowledge his efforts towards becoming a better person instead of making any effort to emotionally support him, since she's really all he has left after the deaths of their father and Sanjulo. This only serves to make Kazai's depression grow gradually worse, and eventually, he becomes outright suicidal.
  • Sanity Slippage: She was already a tad bit psychologically imbalanced to begin with, but to say the demon invasion of St. Curtis, watching one of her friends get killed in front of her, and being forced to kill 2 demons have had a negative impact on her psyche is a massive understatement. She will never be the same after this.
    • And before this, being at an archery stand, when her memories cause her to lose it, and blow up one of the targets.
  • Self-Harm: It's been confirmed by the artist that the multiple scars on her arm are indeed her own doing, most likely to deal with her abusive mother, among other issues. They were foreshadowed in a earlier page when Rhea accidentally saw them, and wondered why Kieri didn't bother to use her healing magic on them.
  • Shrinking Violet: Due to her upbringing. While she has opened up much more around Buwaro and Rhea, she still tends towards this around other people.
  • Significant Wardrobe Shift: After a fight with Kazai that ends in her parting ways with him, she changes out of her traditional warrior robes and starts wearing a purple dress with brown fingerless gloves while also removing the dye from her hair.
    • Even before the fight, her conversation with a Cross Dressing J, on how such freedom of expression is normal on Medius and finding her hair dye bottle broken shortly after has her start to revaulate her life in Heaven versus the one she has now, foreshadowing the change.
  • The Unfavorite: She believes herself to be this compared to Kazai, due to her not being as strong a fighter. Considering how her mother and peers are shown treating her in flashbacks, she might have a point.

A rare golden wyvern.
  • Animals Not to Scale: In-universe, Crunky is unusually small for a wyvern.
  • Blow You Away: She's capable of magically generating powerful gusts of wind by flapping her wings.
  • Female Monster Surprise: Although it's not that big of a deal, a Khamega hoping to buy Crunky is able to easily tell that it's a girl, even though Kieri had no idea.
  • Loyal Animal Companion: She quickly became this to Kieri to the point where she blew dirt into the eyes of Kazai and Verammi for upsetting and attacking her respectively, tries to attack Buwaro after he's forced to take Kieri captive to prevent her from getting herself killed by several demonsand is was even willing to fight Lazuli to protect Kieri.
  • Team Pet: Belongs to Kieri, given to her by Buwaro. It's also heavily implied that she was this to the old couple who owned the Coiled Cobra Bar before Azurai killed them.


  • Humans Are Average: They're stronger than fairies but weaker than Jakkai, Khamega and demons. Their also better magic users than Jakkai, earth demons and Khamega but worse so than angels, fairies and most other demons. Despite this the main site describes them as the most widespread and technologically-advanced species.

    Seymour Sinclair 
Another denizen of the Ring of the Slightly Damned, he's been trying to swim across the River Styx to Heaven for quite some time.
  • Impossible Task: He certainly hasn't made any progress swimming the River Styx.
  • Lovable Rogue: He had stolen a lot but was presumably one of these given he was in the ring of the slightly damned (reserved only for those whose bad in life only slightly outweighed the good) and not hell proper.
  • Scars are Forever: He retains the horrific injuries from the failed stunt that killed him.

    Heathcliff "Cliff" Sinclair 
A fairly laid-back man, who has traveled around and seen more things than pretty much everyone else in the cast who isn't a god put together.

    Miranda Sinclair 
Cliff's wife, and much nicer than he is.
  • Action Mom: After her pregnancy is over and she no longer has to take it easy.
  • Alchemy Is Magic: She's a highly skilled alchemist, capable of brewing the Rainbow Reverie, a set of highly powerful (and valuable) potions that individually act as status buffs.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She seems nice, but it turns out she's quite used to fighting. Her pregnancy just prevented it.
  • Bodyguarding a Badass: She let Kieri and her friends travel with her family so Kieri, an experienced angel warrior, could offer them protection on the way to St. Curtis. But, if anything, she's stronger than Kieri (at least when the Rainbow Reverie takes effect).
  • Mama Bear: You're up Shit Creek with no paddle if you think you can threaten her family and get away with it. Just ask Haury and Triska.
  • Pirate Girl: Zigzagged Trope. She claims to come from a long line of pirates, but so far it's not clear if she ever actually was one.
  • Pregnant Badass: Subverted: She had to take things easy during her pregnancy, but once she'd given birth...
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A non-villainous version. Her eyes glow red after drinking some of the red potion of the Rainbow Reverie set, which boosts her physical strength to superhuman levels.
  • Super-Strength: Gets it by drinking the red Rainbow Reverie potion. She even lifts her family's wagon over her head!

    Samantha "Sammy" Kailum 
The niece of Cliff and Miranda. Very curious and outgoing, but naturally a little naive due to being a child.
  • Cheerful Child: Very much so.
  • Happily Adopted: The fact that her parents are dead doesn't really affect her, and she enjoys traveling with her aunt and uncle.
  • Playing with Fire: Not at the level of Buwaro or Cliff, but she can toss small fireballs around.

    Jake "J" Thorndyke 
A lazy man who works odd jobs, and who happens to be one of Rhea's old friends.
  • Ambiguous Gender: While mostly referred to as male he has recently been implied to possibly be gender fluid.
  • Butt-Monkey: Don't get started on how many times this guy has gotten screwed over.
  • Crossdresser: He likes to wear dresses as shown here. Is later shown actully wearing it, and with his hair down and beard shaved, Kieri doesn't recognize him, calling him a "Pretty Stranger" until corrected by Buwaro. He takes this as a compliment and states that he "Likes to switch things up for a change of pace", causing her to question if such things are allowed. He states such things are normal on Medius, prompting her to reveal how restrictive heaven is in comparison, where one's outfit and hair are dicticated by element and sex.
  • Cuteness Overload: His reaction to seeing Crunky.
  • I Have Many Names: An unusual variant in that in addition to enjoying changing his appearance, he goes by different names pretty frequently: currently, he goes by Jake, but has used Jenna in the past and is considering Jasper as a new name. Rhea even notes that she calls him "J" for simplicity due to the constant flip-flopping of names.
  • Playing with Fire: It's implied that he's even worse at controlling his fire magic than Buwaro, and is the reason why he lost most of his jobs.


  • Always Lawful Good: Averted, they are widely belived to be inherently good but they have committed war crimes during the great war and have warriors prone to Knight Templar behavior. A few even defect to hell altogether. Hell, the current leader of the demons isn't even a demon himself - he's an angel!
  • Amulet of Concentrated Awesome: They get their wings and halos from pendants which give them enhanced magic and physical strength.
  • Our Angels Are Different: They are pale skinned with Pointy Ears, pure white hair, are hatched from eggs, and have an above average affinity for magic.
  • The Clan: Their society is divided into clans based on family lines, element and societal role.
  • Dying Race: The great war has wiped out much of their population and with fewer children being born (possibly because of Gaia going missing), they are in a very real danger of going extinct.
  • Elemental Powers: Angels have four different elemental abilities that also decides what tattoos they get and who they're allowed to marry.
  • Holy Halo: When they get their magic enhancing star pendants they can make a halo over their heads which indicates that they are using their stronger magic.
  • Mystical White Hair: Their hair is naturally pure white and they are the most magically powerful race, though you usually can't tell because they dye it according to their element.
  • Noble Bigot: Deconstructed. Angels see themselves as more benevolent and superior to demons in general, treating the latter race as Always Chaotic Evil. But it's shown that they're willing to commit war crimes such as massacre demon children in cold blood, while some defect to hell altogether. They're even prejudiced against demons who are quite nice and don't fit the mold of being "monsters" personality-wise. A number of them seem rather biased against Medians too, at least among the warriors, if not as greatly.
  • Order vs. Chaos: The order side of the conflict, they live in a strictly regimented society with many rules and (compared to humans) look relatively similar.
  • Power Gives You Wings: When they get their sun pendant they can make white wings that can disappear at will.
  • Proud Warrior Race: Their warrior caste are very proud of their abilities and can be very brutal in combat. It's deconstructed that this mindset led to them shunning and mistreating Kieri for not being combat-minded like them.
  • Sigil Spam: All angel weapons are designed to resemble the elemental insignia of the angel wielding it.
  • Whale Egg: Like demons, Angels are born from eggs.
  • White Magic: Their holy magic has few combat applications but it can heal, enchant and protect.
  • World of Technicolour Hair: Zig-zagged. Angel hair is naturally pure white, but they get it dyed depending on their element. The way it's dyed also differs depending on gender; females have most of their hair dyed but leave their bangs their natural white, males leave it mostly uncolored except for the bangs, and non-binary individuals have it colored completely.

    Darius Elexion 
One of the most important characters in the backstory of the comic, Darius was an angel who, after ending up in Hell, basically started raising Iratu, Sakido, and Buwaro before vanishing in an effort to protect them.
  • The Blacksmith: Is capable of crafting angelic pendants.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Has earth magic.
  • Foreshadowing: A heck of a lot of it, regarding his continued existence as Death.
  • God Job: Hi there, Death.
  • Invisible to Normals: Nobody can see him when he's gathering the souls of the dead except for Rhea presumably due to the fact she came Back from the Dead.
    • This is also somewhat turned around on him and Blue as demons are invisible to them while on Medius.
  • Papa Wolf: He went to incredible lengths to make sure his three children, despite being demons, were kept safe.
  • Promotion to Parent: He cares for Iratu, Sakido, and later Buwaro when he finds each of them in Hell, and the recent warring between the angels and demons has killed their parents.
  • Psychopomp: As Death he can send souls to judgment. Specifically he guides the souls of those who didn't end up immediately going to their appropriate afterlife for one reason or another.
  • The Reveal: Sakido's "pen pal"? It was him.
  • Straight Gay: It's only brought up once, when Kieri finds out that he had a crush on her uncle, and has little to no significance to the story. That said it's one of the things pointed out on the site's FAQ page, with the author being confused as to why it was a big deal.
    Is Darius gay? What’s the point?
    I don’t know why this was a such a hard concept for people to grasp, but yes. Darius is homosexual. The point is that there is no point.

    Kazai Suizahn 
Kieri's twin brother, who is less studious and more adventurous than his sister. For a large part of the story, the goal of the protagonists was to locate him.
  • Bullying a Dragon: When he ran into Broxis in Farun, he punched him in the face for helping Hell in the war. What possible good did he think would come from that?? He's very lucky all Broxis did was curse him. A fact Kieri recognizes while Kazai is completely oblivious to it.
  • Character Development: After getting a heaping dose of Humble Pie from Kieri and then her turning her back on him for his horrid behavior, Kazai has slowly, clumsily started to try bettering himself, to the point where he actually begins to form a positive connection with Buwaro after he realizes Buwaro's kindness towards him and his love for Kieri are both genuine.
  • Death Seeker: Losing Sanjulo, as well as his sister's trust and respect, has left him so deep in despair, he actively picks fights with the vicious beasts of Medius' wildlife (in wolf form) in hopes of getting killed by one of them.
  • The Extremist Was Right: Despite his belligerent attitude and apathy towards medians, he was right not to trust (most of) the demons in St. Curtis.
  • Fantastic Racism: He's very prejudiced against both Demons and Medians, to the extent that he thinks all Demons (and apparently Jakkai) are monsters. Naturally, being informed by his sister that she's dating a Demon is something he doesn't exactly take well. He's developed a particular hatred for fire demons due to one being responsible for the loss of his father's arm and Azurai's killing of Sanjulo.
  • Fish out of Water: To say he's shocked by how St. Curtis is a Truce Zone for Angels and Demons would be an understatement.
  • Forced Transformation: It turns out he and Kieri have something in common after all. Though his curse transforms him into a wolf instead.
  • Gayngst: Implied and then immediately subverted. The way he talks about his relationship with Sanjulo makes you think he's hung up about being gay. Then it turns out he's more bothered about the fact that he's dating an Angel of the opposite element as him (Kazai's water-aligned; Sanjulo is fire-aligned).
  • Hot-Blooded: His first reaction to seeing Moonshade and Melli fighting is to ask Kieri who he should attack.
  • Hypocrite: He yells at Kieri for "abandoning" him while attacking her but after arriving on Medius he left her behind to chase after Dakos which allowed Lazuli and Talus to take her captive.
  • It's All About Me: Literally every problem he has is rooted in how profoundly self-centered and self-righteous he is. And even worse, he refuses to acknowledge that he’s ever at fault for it. After the St. Curtis arc, Kieri finally has enough and leaves him, to which he responds by whining about her daring to “abandon” him.
  • It's Personal: He seethingly tells Kieri that he plans to make Azurai pay for taking the life of his lover, Sanjulo.
  • Jerkass: While he's kind to Sanjulo and Kieri (albeit in a more condescending way), he's pretty unpleasant to everyone else, including other angels. This makes him fairly unpopular with them on Medius.
  • Making a Splash: Like his sister, he's a water element angel.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Non-romantic example. Because he can’t fathom that Kieri is traveling with Rhea and Buwaro of her own free will, he tries to seriously hurt or kill Buwaro before Kieri ends up intervening.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: During his fight with Kieri, he realizes he has taken it too far when he slashes her across the cheek, and is visibly horrified.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: After his fight against Kieri, he swallows his pride and apologizes for his actions to his sister several days later. However, while Kieri lets him join them, she's still angry at him for attacking Buwaro, and coldly rejects his apology. Likewise, Rhea has grown to hate him and wants nothing to do with him. Ironically enough, it's Buwaro who treats him with the most kindness and sympathy, with J a close second.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: While Kieri was going around helping people while trying to find him, he brought down an avalanche to block a mountain pass for some reason, and got arrested. The two also apparently had an argument prior to getting separated.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: He doesn't have it himself, but he thinks his sister has it after she reveals she's dating Buwaro (though he calls it "Stockholder's Syndrome").
  • Straight Gay: There is no indication of this given whatsoever until he flirts with Sanjulo in the middle of a battle, but they are indeed an item.
  • Tempting Fate: After rendezvousing with Verammi, he tells Sanjulo he wants him to see how he destroys the next demon they face. Said demon turns out to be Azurai, and to say it ends badly for them would be an understatement.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: "Thanks" Buwaro for saving him and his sister by punching him in the face. He later tries to separate Kieri from Buwaro, stating that all fire demons are violent, evil creatures, not realizing that Buwaro is a noble, selfless person who genuinely loves Kieri and is torn up about playing the Fake Defector against Iratu. When she refuses, Kazai proceeds to attack Buwaro himself. At that point, Kieri has had enough of him and actively starts a fight with her brother.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He throws a tantrum when Kieri leaves him in St. Curtis, prompting him to try and kill Buwaro, and then to subsequently beat Kieri into submission.

A wind-aligned elderly angel, and a veteran of the Great War. Does not take well to the idea of angels and demons getting along.
  • Ax-Crazy: He's so out of it that he attempts to kill Buwaro just for being a demon and Kieri for protecting him. The look on his face as he kicks around Bunny Kieri is pure GLEE.
  • Badass in Distress: He is currently being held prisoner by Iratu and Co.To be used in a sacrificial ritual for bringing more demons into Medius.
  • Category Traitor: Accuses Kieri of this for her friendship with Buwaro.
  • Fantastic Racism: He hates all demons because the rest of his clan was slaughtered by demons during the war.
  • Humiliation Conga: He gets roasted by Cliff, has his town of residence get razed by Iratu and co., and has since been kidnapped and brutalized by them ever since.
  • Knight Templar: Hates demons and anybody that supports them, no exceptions.
  • Last of Their Kind: The Denevols were believed to have been completely wiped out during the war. He was stranded on Medius, leaving him as the sole member of the Denevol clan.
  • Shock and Awe: He's not afraid to use it on other angels, either.
  • Would Harm a Child: He was willing to kill the entire Sinclair family, even Samantha and her unborn sibling.

    Khalav and Arla Suizahn 
Two water-aligned angels who are the mother and father of Kieri and Kazai.
  • Abusive Parents: Arla to Kieri, physically and emotionally. We don't know how she treats Kazai... yet.
  • Apologizes a Lot: Arla apologized every time she physically assaulted Kieri, saying she didn't mean to... and goes right back to hitting her later on, which is sadly Truth in Television when it comes to Abusive Parents such as her.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Khalav's right arm had to be amputated after a fire demon's breath attack left it beyond saving when the twins were only small children.
  • Dual Wielding: Arla wields two swords in combat, as seen here.
  • The Faceless: Much like their names, their whole faces weren't shown for years. We get an early glimpse in a seasonal wallpaper the artist created in 2018. Both of them finally get a full face reveal in Page 1093.
  • Fantastic Racism: Kieri reveals that Arla hates demons even more than Denevol does. And looking back and seeing what he did to Buwaro as soon as he laid eyes on him...
  • Handicapped Badass: As mentioned above, Khalav lost his arm to severe burns from a fire demon's breath. Did that diminish his strength in the slightest, or force him to quit his duties as a Seraph? Hell no.
  • Hypocrite: Arla abuses and insults Kieri for not living up to the Suizahn warrior heritage but she herself was born into a caretaker clan and married into the Suizahns after her birth clan was wiped out.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Once when Kieri and Kazai were much younger they both fell ill, and Kieri had a slower recovery time than Kazai. Khalav was comforting to her, but Arla's reaction was to claim that Kieri couldn't still be sick, because her twin was better already, and that she must be faking it.
  • Jerk With A Heart Of Jerk: Arla, towards Kieri. Just when you think she's being sincerely nice/regretful to Kieri, she dives straight back into her abusive nature seconds later. This left her daughter with quite a bit of emotional/psychological trauma.
  • Knight Templar Parent: A deconstructed example with Arla, towards Kieri. She trained her in combat since she was a little girl, because she wants her to uphold the Suizahn warrior family legacy. Her abusive nature comes off as being "strict", because she claims to be concerned for Kieri's well-being. But whatever made her the way she is, it's clear that she is mentally unfit to be a parent.
  • Never Had a Birthday Party: For their kids. Their idea of a birthday "celebration"? For them to be thankful they're alive for another year.
  • Nice Guy: Unlike Arla, Khalav is very friendly and compassionate, especially towards Kieri.
  • No Name Given: For a very long time, their names were never revealed. We eventually learn the father's name is Khalav and the mother's name is Arla.
  • Parental Favoritism: Not an extreme example, but Kazai seems to be favored among them, especially their mother.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Arla.
  • Quit Your Whining: Once when Kieri cried during combat practice, Arla slapped her and snarled that if she were facing a demon, it wouldn't give a damn about her tears and would kill her on the spot. Rather ironically, Buwaro ended up proving her wrong in that exact scenario when he first met Kieri.
  • Training from Hell: Arla made her practice with a bow and arrow ALL DAY, until her fingers bled, with no breaks. When she was around 5 years old.
  • Why Did You Make Me Hit You?: Arla always placed her physically abusive nature on the fault of her daughter Kieri.

    Zahariah Sanjulo 
Kazai's friend & partner. He's been traveling with Kazai off-panel while the protagonists were looking for the latter.

A seraph, currently in St. Curtis for unknown reasons. She's also apparently Kazai's and Sanjulo's superior. As it turns out, she's allied with Iratu.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: She gets smashed after only one pint of alcohol.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: She appears to be an angel of earth affinity. She uses an earth-elemental spell to imprison Kazai in stone.
  • Drop the Hammer: Wields a large holy magic infused warhammer in battle.
  • Evil All Along: She's actually allied with Iratu and the demons invading St. Curtis, and is helping with the angel kidnapping operation. She believes the forces of hell to be the "winning side" of the ongoing conflict between hell and heaven.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joined the forces of hell so she wouldn't have to follow heaven's rigid laws anymore.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a pronounced one that runs across the bridge of her nose and under both eyes, but she's respected and looked up to by her angelic subordinates as a heroic figure. Too bad she's really on the demons' side.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Her reason for leaving Heaven and joining Hell is pretty much similar to that of a rebellious teenager who runs away from home because she doesn't want to live by her parents' rules or do what they say, and wants to hang out with her "cool" friends.
  • Shipper on Deck: Of all people, she seems to approve of Buwaro and Kieri's relationship. This is actually an indication that she thinks Kieri is also in on the demons' operations in the city.

    Kinako Tamis 
A good-natured angel mother traveling with her son Tirol and two demons whom their revealed to be a family and is surprisingly supportive of Buwaro and Kieri's relationship. She is later captured by demons to used as a sacrifice.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Named after Japanese soy bean powder.
  • Cultural Rebel: She thinks poorly of heaven's warrior culture and rigid laws, she even buys a dress despite the fact angels have a strict dress code.
  • Fantastic Racism: More like fantastic classism, but she dislikes warrior angels, thinking them belligerent ruffians (though considering nearly every warrior angel we've seen was a racist violent Knight Templar, she has a point) and has difficulty believing someone as soft-spoken, educated, and kind as Kieri to be one.
  • Polyamory: Has such a relationship with Sahne and Lakritz.

    Tirol Tamis 
A young angel child who is the son of Kinako and step-son of Lakritz and Shane



    Sakido Elexion
Buwaro's older "sister", she's a wind demon with a penchant for bad poetry. Killed in the process of flying Buwaro and Rhea out of Hell.
  • The Atoner: In spades towards Buwaro, for abandoning him when he was little.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: She normally doesn't even have a tail unlike most demons but when she goes berserk to save Rhea and Buwaro, she grows a long skeletal tail with a spear-like tip that she uses to impale an unfortunate water demon with.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: When she goes berserk her eyes turn pitch black, which when paired with her now exposed teeth and nostrils gives her head a skull appearance. However when she grabs Buwaro's star pendant in an attempt to kill him, it restores some of her sanity which is shown by the blue returning to her eyes.
  • Call to Agriculture: Spends a good part of her time raising bonsai trees.
  • "Facing the Bullets" One-Liner: "I see. So it really did turn out this way. So be it."
  • Famed In-Story: She became one of hell's strongest wind warriors and just uttering her name is enough to get the attention of several demons even to the point where Dakos a grouchy veteran demon who dislikes the younger generations way of doing things calls her "one of our best warriors".
  • Giftedly Bad: Her poetry.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Does so to ensure that Buwaro and Rhea reach Medius.
  • Karmic Death: She abandoned Buwaro despite Darius trusting her and Iratu to look after him. By the time she died, she acknowledged that she "deserved it" for treating Buwaro quite poorly, especially since he's her brother in all but blood.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Missing Mom: Like Buwaro's parents, her mother was killed in the war.
  • No Love for the Wicked: Word of Gay states she's aromantic asexual.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Word of God even states that the readers were supposed to get attached to her, only for her to die as soon as she, Rhea, and Buwaro have Earned Their Happy Ending.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Has a number of elements of this, which is part of why she lives in the Ring of the Slightly Damned.
  • Shock and Awe: Her main powers.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She's generally pretty aloof and tends to keep people at arms length most of the time, but she does genuinely care about her brothers, even if she can only take them in small doses (due to Buwaro's overly-affectionate personality and Iratu's drunkeness and volatility).
  • Trauma Button: The sight of Buwaro's berserk form brought back traumatic memories of when he scarred Darius's face and blinded his eye.

    Iratu Elexion
Buwaro's "big brother", a gigantic earth demon who loves to drink.
  • Alcohol Hic: He's even the page image!
  • Benevolent Boss: As much of a terrible person as he is, he treats his men, including his Co-Dragons Azurai and Tsavo, with genuine care and respect. He's similar to Arlong in the sense that his care for his subordinates is one of his very few redeeming traits, and is an utter asshat towards everyone else.
  • Berserk Button: Buwaro bringing up Darius to him is enough to make him decide to kill him outright.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: His tail is a cross between this and a Sinister Scythe. Interestingly it seems to change to an arrow head shape without the effects of Darius's moon pendant.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Iratu can be a complete goofball sometimes, especially when he's drunk. But, as mentioned below, he and his men massacre Weyville - a Seraph-guarded town - with relative ease. And he's downright terrifying when he becomes angry.
  • Big Brother Bully: When he meets back up with Buwaro in the Coiled Cobra Bar he doesn't acknowledge him as his brother and repeatedly insults and demeans him.
    • Totally averted in Hell, where he's being more careless than spiteful. Then Word of God reveals he never loved Buwaro in the first place...
  • Broken Pedestal: The subject of one: Buwaro clearly loved and admired him when they were in Hell, but after Iratu's treatment of him on Medius, Buwaro has clearly lost all respect for him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite obviously being very strong physically, it was implied he was normally too drunk and happy-go-lucky to be a major threat. Fast forward to The Reveal that he and his cohorts have slaughtered an entire village without any trouble...
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Buwaro's Abel.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Implied when he is unusually somber, in comparison to his normal happy drunkeness, after he and Buwaro part again. Azurai even asks if he's OK.
  • Famed In-Story: Not to the extent Sakido was, but he is shown to be a very prominent figure in Hell's ranks just from how other demons react to bringing him up. He is also implied to be one of, if not the, heads of the angel-snatching operation in St. Curtis, meaning he has a high position in Hell's army.
  • Faux Affably Evil: At first, he seems like a chill guy you wouldn't mind having a drink or two with; then, a later chapter reveals him to be one of Hell's generals, and he's shown to have a truly ruthless and cruel personality to back that position up.
  • I Should Have Done This Years Ago: What he says when he tries to kill Buwaro.
  • Jerkass: To call Iratu a complete and utter ass would be putting it lightly. Like many other demons, he's a racist, sadistic and petty bastard who feels like he and his men are free to run rampant on Medius because their God commands it. That's not even getting into the downright cruel and heartless things he says to (and about) Buwaro at St. Curtis.
  • Kick the Dog: Well, telling Buwaro to his face that Sakido "died for a stupid reason" (him surviving) and driving the poor boy to tears certainly counts as an example.
  • Lack of Empathy: Tsavo electrocuting Buwaro at the Coiled Cobra elicits no emotional reaction from him, nor does his assumption that Buwaro will die after going semi-berserk.
  • Large and in Charge: Physically the biggest character in the series, and he holds the rank of general among the forces of the villains.
    • Later outdone by Sahne. It also doesn't help that he's actually implied to be the smallest Earth demon in Hell, due to his parents being unable to raise him, he just wears a special amulet that lets him grow in size.
  • Large Runt: Without his moon pendant he is hell's smallest earth demon, even then he is still larger than the human-sized Azurai.
  • MissingMom/DisappearedDad: Like Buwaro and Sakido, his parents are MIA. Unlike Buwaro and Sakido, his parents are never officially identified as "dead."
  • Never My Fault: He places the blame for Sakido's death squarely on Buwaro, completely denying that the reason Sakido tried to leave Hell in the first place was because she wanted no part in Iratu's plan to massacre innocents and sacrifice angels.
  • Pet the Dog: He's only nice to his fellow demon soldiers. He's a genuine prick to everyone else.
  • Sizeshifter: Can do this if he takes off his Transformation Trinket pendant, shrinking down to about six feet tall. He also seems to undergo mild shapeshifting at the same time, the most obvious difference is his tail scythe changing back to its original spearhead shape and his features become shorter, rounder and overall more puppy-like.
  • Straight Gay: Word of Gay is that he and Azurai are boyfriends.
  • Unstoppable Rage: What happens when you try to wake him while he's sleeping off his drink.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's incredibly hard to talk about Iratu without mentioning that he's one of the current generals of Hell's army.
  • You Should Have Died Instead: He hates Buwaro so much that after learning of Sakido's death, he tells Buwaro to his face that Sakido died for a "stupid reason" (Buwaro).

A water demon who, along with her partner Talus, captured and tormented Kieri for a time. Despite that, she is determined to kill Kieri in revenge for her killing Talus.
  • Arc Villainess: She's the overall main villain for the first five books.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In her berserk state she gains a MASSIVE size boost.
  • Avenging the Villain: Her current goal. Even to the point to where she'll disobey the orders given to her by trying to kill Kieri.
  • Ax-Crazy: Becomes this after her first battle against Kieri, if she wasn't before. On her way to St. Curtis, she murders an innocent person for his water and laughs. And she only gets worse from there...
  • Back for the Dead
  • Blood from the Mouth: Blood sprays from her mouth when she is fatally stabbed by Kieri's sword.
  • Breath Weapon: When berserk she shoots a barrage of icicles and powerful blast of dark magic from her jaws, probably because she has to walk on all fours in that state.
  • The Bus Came Back: Lazuli returns during the attack on St. Curtis. Too bad Kieri isn't with them to help fight her... But Kieri eventually does come back, but she does about as well since she suffers from a Heroic BSoD shortly after starting to fight Lazuli.
  • Combat Pragmatist: While she's only shown fighting once in her introduction she fights very hard in St. Curtis.
  • Climax Boss: While Iratu and Moonshade are definitely the larger threats, she was the one that pushed the trio to their limits and serves as the first overarching villain.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite her cruel nature, she was extremely distraught when Kieri killed her partner.
  • Evil Counterpart: Acts as a demonic one of Kieri.
  • Evil Is Petty: On her way to St. Curtis, Lazuli finds herself feeling rather parched. But instead of going to a nearby lake or river (or better yet, using her own water magic) to quench her thirst, she murders a random civilian and swipes his canteen.
  • Extreme Mêlée Revenge: Is on the receiving end of one of these by a semi-berserk Buwaro who sinks his massive saberfangs into her shoulder, thrashes her in the air and then throws her off the speeding wagon with enough force for there to be a Sickening "Crunch!"
  • The Gloves Come Off: The only reason Kieri was able to beat her the first time around was because she needed her alive. The second time they fight, Lazuli uses lethal force from the get-go, and Kieri roughly finds out just how dangerous she is when she isn't holding back.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: This page seems to suggest that she is actually jealous that the angels are admired by the medians despite being no different from the demons.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Freaking AZURAI is more rational in comparison. That. Is. ALL.
  • How Much More Can He Take?: "Ridiculous" doesn't even begin to describe the sheer amount of punishment she can take, especially in her berserk form.
  • An Ice Person: Her main power.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How Kieri kills her.
  • Jerkass: Ooooh, yeah. On top of being a murderous sadist, Lazuli is just a straight-up mean-spirited bitch on a normal day. Alongside Dakos and Iratu himself, she's easily one of the biggest assholes in Hell's army.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • Everything she does to Kieri both times she's shown holding her captive.
    • She shows her utter disregard for human life by killing a random man for his canteen.
  • Killed Off for Real: After going berserk, she finally dies on page 832.
  • Lack of Empathy: The lives of innocents are just disposable playthings to her.
  • Man Bites Man: She bites into Kieri's arm during their third bout. It's bad enough to take Kieri out of the fight immediately.
  • Moral Myopia: She's furious and grief-stricken after Kieri kills her partner, Talus. Never mind her physical and verbal browbeating of Kieri when she was their captive, as well as all the people she killed before and after the "humiliation" she suffered at the angel's hands.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: When she encounters the protagonists a second time in St. Curtis, she wastes absolutely no time with small talk, doesn't prolong the fight, and tries to kill them as swiftly as possible, and she comes damn close to doing so. Only Azurai prevents her from finishing them off.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: She destroys Thadius, injures and later disables Rhea, almost kills Buwaro twice, and nearly succeeds in killing Kieri before Azurai, of all people, steps in to stop her.
    • Then, after being thrashed by berserk Buwaro, she goes berserk herself and easily kills a demon.
  • One-Winged Angel: Goes berserk after being on the receiving end of a brutal beatdown by an artificially-berserk Buwaro, possibly due to the presence of the same potion that triggered his transformation.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: On the receiving end of a brutal one by the main trio. First getting mauled by a berserk, potion-charged Buwaro, then impaled by Rhea's equally overcharged terra spike, and finally dies when she gets stabbed by a now raging Kieri.
  • Revenge Before Reason: After losing against Kieri the first time, Lazuli is pissed enough to disobey her superiors' direct orders and repeatedly attempt to kill her, completely disregarding the trouble she could get in, or how severe it is. She no longer cares that Kieri is needed for a ritual that brings demons to Earth, she wants her dead.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Her main motivation after losing Kieri in Snow Angels.
  • Sanity Slippage: Her violent nature rose up by several notches after getting beaten by Kieri and losing Talus. When she encounters Kieri at St. Curtis, she uses lethal force against her right off the bat, fully intent on tearing her to pieces to avenge the painful slight she suffered in their last bout. It's telling that Azurai has to personally step in and restrain her.
  • Scars are Forever: She has a large black scar on her side where Kieri's holy sword slashed her. Its where Kieri fatally stabs her.
  • The Sociopath: A very low-functioning example; she shows a stunning Lack of Empathy, having no problem thoughtlessly killing innocent people in broad daylight, has a lack of planning and foresight, is not shown to have any sort of bond with any of Iratu's soldiers, and is extremely self-centered and prideful, to the point where she is fully willing to disobey direct orders to kill Kieri as revenge for an earlier defeat, despite knowing she'll get in massive trouble for it. The only person she cared about was Talus, and even then, she's not above using his death as a selfish excuse to want Kieri dead, when it's painfully obvious that she's more mad about Kieri humiliating her in battle than anything.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Her berserk form has six huge icicles on her back.
  • Taking You with Me: Attempts to drown Kieri with her at the end of their first fight. She even says the trope name verbatim as she does so.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Inverted; while she loses to the heroes in their encounter at the lake, she wipes the floor with them in seconds in St. Curtis. At first, she was holding back immensely to take Kieri alive for a demon-summoning ritual, something she's angry enough to forgo completely after Kieri defeats her, and their second battle shows that she could have easily killed the main trio herself the first time around if she really wanted to.

An earth demon who had captured Kieri along with Lazuli. He's killed shortly after encountering Rhea and Buwaro.

    Buwaro's Parents 
A pair of fire demons who died protecting their unborn son Buwaro.
  • Ambiguously Evil: While they clearly loved their son and each other, if this Q&A is any indication of their canon personalities as well as the fact that Papawaro was willing to kill young Sakido and Iratu, they might have been just as brutal as the other demons.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Their reaction to their son Buwaro dating Kieri is to express how proud they are of their son for corrupting angels and making them defect from Heaven.
  • Fantastic Racism: Papawaro was at first completely unwilling to allow Buwaro to be raised by Darius and even tried to attack him. However, given that angels had killed his wife, fatally injured him and damaged his egg, his hostility is understandable.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: Papawaro had a rare variation of this were instead of three fingers and a thumb, he had four fingers (or rather massive claws) and no thumb.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Mamawaro was killed by a holy arrow through the chest.
  • Last Request: Papawaro asks to be buried with his wife.
  • No Name Given: They haven't been given canon names so Chu calls them Mamawaro and Papawaro.
  • Papa Wolf: Even when in pain and dying from his injuries Papawaro still was willing to attack Darius (who at that point had all three pendants) to protect Buwaro.
  • Posthumous Character: They are long dead by the start of the story and Mamawaro was already dead when we see her in the flashback.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Papawaro had these and was quite vicious in protecting his egg.

A wind demon who is currently serving as Iratu's subordinate.
  • Affably Evil: He is unfailingly polite, even when discussing topics such as murder and torture.
  • All There in the Manual: He is trans according to Chu on his reference sheet.
  • The Comically Serious: Just like Sakido, he certainly has his moments.
  • The Dragon: All puns aside, he seems to be this for Iratu, giving orders to other demons when Iratu is either drunk or not present.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Sort of. He was mentioned by Azurai over 300 pages and 5 years before his first actual appearance.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He isn't very fond of the demonic education method.
  • Genius Bruiser: Tsavo is every bit as intelligent as he is dangerous. He's a pragmatic and strategic tactician, has extenstive knowledge of demon anatomy, and he's a master alchemist, taking the time to study various potions and their effects, as well as creating new ones from scratch. He's also very proficient with his wind and lightning magic and is powerful enough to easily defeat three experienced warrior angels (Kieri, Kazai, and Sanjulo) in combat. Simultaneously.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his frustration with Azurai's antics he prevents him from possibly blowing himself up by taking his wine away.note 
    • He also knew Sakido personally and angrily accuses Buwaro of lying about her death, blames him for it and tries to kill him for it.
  • Hypocrite: Berates Azurai for being thoughtlessly violent and reckless, when he was fully willing to kill Cliff Sinclair in broad daylight for refusing to sell him a potion set - something Tsavo himself admitted he didn't have the money for. Then there's everything he does to Buwaro at the Coiled Cobra bar.
  • Missing Mom: Like Sakido, Iratu and Buwaro he lost his parents in the great war.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Word of God states that he's very beautiful, and indeed, Tsavo is quite handsome, especially with his shirt off and his hair down. Some of Chu's more risque artwork even shows him outright naked (with obvious Scenery Censor, of course).
  • No Love for the Wicked: He was confirmed to be aromantic asexual.
  • Obliviously Beautiful: According to his reference sheet, he is very beautiful but doesn't really get nor does he really care.
  • Not So Above It All: As much as he is a counterpart to Azurai with his reserved demeanor, Tsavo is himself still prone to occasional outbursts of anger and profanity. Usually when one of his cohorts does something stupid.
    • A much darker example occurs during The Gathering, when he learns of Sakido's death from Buwaro he becomes as equally belligerent and violent as Azurai when his horn was cut and tries to kill Buwaro with a lighting bolt.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: His physical appearance is definitely draconic, but his character description on the site clarifies that he's not really a dragon, just a demon who looks like one.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: A recurring gag in the series is have Tsavo critizing Azurai for his Stupid Evil tendency of killing humans for giggles, in disregard of their potential usefulness.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Azurai's Red.
  • Ride the Lightning: He is capable of appearing in a flash of green lightning.
  • Shock and Awe: We first see him use it to torment Azurai. Later he shows he's very proficient with it in actual combat when he easily trounces Kieri, Kazai and Sanjulo.
  • Undying Loyalty: He is loyal to Iratu because he (alongside Sakido) was the only other war orphans who treated him kindly and didn't beat him up because of his weakness.

A volatile fire demon. He was first seen in charge of punishing damned mortals in hell, but is currently serving under Iratu alongside Tsavo.
  • Ax-Crazy: Simply put, Azurai wakes up every day and chooses violence. Even by demons' standards, he's a vicious sadist who's just itching for a reason, any reason, to bathe his claws in someone's blood.
  • Berserk Button: His horns, apparently. And murderously so, too, seeing how he kills Sanjulo in a fit of rage after Kazai chops off a portion of one.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Azurai is dim, vulgar, prone to slapstick, and is arguably the most erratic member of Hell's army, but he's one of General Iratu's lieutenants for a reason. Kazai, Kieri and Sanjulo (especially the latter) found that out the hard way.
  • Blood Knight: He really enjoys fighting and bloodshed, to put it mildly.
  • The Brute: He's the strongest physical fighter in Iratu's army, but he doesn't possess a single strategic thought in his head.
  • Butt-Monkey: Plays this role among the villains, getting beat up frequently by Tsavo and Iratu.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Serves as Iratu and Tsavo's personal punching bag, has an 11-year-old's crude sense of humor, and dumb as bricks. Underestimate him at your own peril.
  • Dumb Muscle: To a T. Buwaro (post-Character Development) is practically Einstein compared to this utter moron.
  • Evil Is Petty: He loses his cool and murders Sanjulo because his partner, Kazai, cut his horn off. Bonus idiot points for Azurai being explicitly aware that horns are able to grow back. Later, Kinako reveals that Sanjulo was the last male member of his clan, meaning that Azurai essentially doomed an entire family line to extinction over a minor inconvenience.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Azurai doesn't look too keen on the idea that Mr. Moonshade could kill his own daughter, Rhea. Much less try to kill her again.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: His extremely short fuse and violent impulses are fatal liabilities to General Iratu's plans.
  • Hidden Depths: Word of God says he's surprisingly loyal and he shows concern for Iratu after Darius is brought up.
  • Hot-Blooded: Loves to kill people because he's evil and he can, and tends to get ahead of the others' plans.
  • Jerkass: The only person he's seen being nice to is Iratu, and he'll hurl insults at, and fight with, even him from time to time.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He tells Lazuli that it's a bad idea to kill Rhea due her her unnaturally long tail similar to Moonshade's and Moku's. He's right.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • He kills Sanjulo after his horn was broken, despite Iratu's orders to capture angels alive. Sanjulo wasn't even the one who sliced his horn off - Kazai was!
    • When he interrupts Lazuli's fight with Kieri, he recognizes "it" as the angel who was with Kazai earlier and asks what "that bitch's" full name is before slapping cuffs on her. Azurai's not only a sadistic murderer, he's also a casual misogynist.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Downplayed due to his Comedic Sociopathy, but when we finally see Azurai in action in St. Curtis, it's anything but funny. He beats down Kieri and Kazai in a scarily realistic fashion and murders Sanjulo in combat, making him one of only two villains so far to have killed off a supporting protagonist. The tone of the story gets darker and more serious from there.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Supremely strong and resilient, and dodges attacks so swiftly, he's nigh-untouchable. Three warrior angels fighting him together only managed to slice off the tip of his horn, and at that point, it's made clear that he was holding back the whole time.
  • Pet the Dog: He acts quite chummy towards Rhea and even denies Lazuli permission to kill her and Buwaro, despite having no real reason to.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Along with his obvious anti-angel racism, he's also shown to be a sexist (calls Kieri a bitch), an abliest (calls Buwaro retarded), and a fat-shamer (calls Iratu a fatass), just in case you needed more evidence for how unpleasant he is.note 
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Rather than let Lazuli kill Kieri and her friends, he destroys her icicle and tells her not to kill the angels. He only did it to further the mission and avoid Iratu's anger.
    • Him also refusing to let her kill Buwaro may also tie into the fact that young demons are becoming increasingly rare.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Tsavo's Blue.
  • Sadist Teacher: He once taught a "killology" class and ended up killing one of his students.
  • Secret-Keeper: Seems to be one of the few demons aware that Iratu was raised by Darius.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: So, so much. Almost everything that comes out of his mouth is either a Precision F-Strike or Cluster F-Bomb.
  • Straight Gay: With Iratu, per Word of Gay.
  • Stupid Evil: Recklessly violent and sadistic and extremely dimwitted, to the point where he'll kill important targets without a second thought - either when angered enough or simply for fun. In other words, he's essentially the Hidan of Slightly Damned.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Brutally kills Sanjulo in combat without even a grain of hesitation, despite him being a teenager. He also offhandedly mentions that he "killed a kid" before. Whether he's referring to Sanjulo, that student from the "killology" class, or some other kid is unknown.

A large boar demon, she's met during the flower festival and is friends with the demon Lakritz and the angel Kinako. Though she was one of the demons who was involved with the demon invasion of St. Curtis.

Another, lizard-like demon encountered in St. Curtis, who's acquainted with Sahne and Kinako. He's involved in the demons' attack on the city, but it's currently unknown how.
  • Affably Evil: Even though he tries to capture Kinako and was involved with the demon attacks it can be inferred that he was trying to save her. Especially since it's implied he lived with Kinako and Tirol.
    • It's now confirmed that he and Sahne were trying to save her, and even got attacked by other demons for their trouble. She's captured anyway, and Lakritz is very nearly killed.
  • The Cassandra: Though he doesn't outright say it, much of his dialogue is him trying to discreetly warn people about the imminent demon invasion in the city, and angels being abducted. His warnings are too vague for many of the people he tells, and it's not yet clear if it would've been worthwhile if they had believed him...
  • Edible Theme Naming: Doubles as a Bilingual Bonus, as he's named after the German word for Licorice.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Has several rings in one of his ears.
  • Love Triangle: With both Sahne and Kinako. Interestingly, all three are together.
  • Official Couple: With both Sahne and Kinako at the same time.
  • Prongs of Poseidon: Type one. He has a trident (which he refers to as his "trusty trident") as is befitting a water being and this also makes him one of the few demons to carry a weapon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Averted, He's one of the the few genuinely good demons met so far.

    Haury, Triska and Abyset 
A wind, fire and water demon respectively, taking part in the siege of St. Curtis and tasked by Tsavo to acquire the Rainbow Reverie.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Abyset has a barb-like spike on the underside of his tail fin which he attempts to use to injure Rhea.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Abyset can create a spout of water on his hand capable of slicing stone.
  • Breath Weapon: Triska spews fire during her fight with Miranda.
  • Designated Girl Fight: Between Triska and Miranda.
  • Didn't Think This Through: They make Miranda go in her wagon to fetch the Rainbow Reverie potion set, and have Buwaro act as a Stool Pigeon for them. It never occured to them that Miranda might actually drink one of the potions once she was out of their line of sight.
  • Dirty Coward: Abyset. Rather than stay and battle Cliff and Miranda (the latter who had just laid him out with one punch) with the rest of his group, he decides to sneak away and go after Rhea, Sammy, and her baby cousin Flo instead, knowing they would put up much less of a fight.
  • Feather Flechettes: Haury uses a magical variation, charging the feathers on his wings with wind energy and firing said energy at Cliff.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Abyset is ran through on Kieri's sword, might not have been enough to kill him though.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: Even after swiftly defeating Cliff Sinclair, Haury still stomps on his back with a sadistic grin on his face.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: A variation with Haury, wind demons are generally the most intelligent type of demons and typically have a serious demeanor but he is shown to be rather dim and immature (laughing at Tsavo's unintentional rhyme, and unable to remember the correct name for the rainbow reverie.)
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite their scatterbrained behaviour, they are aggressive and cruel fighters and had no intention to spare the Sinclair family once they had what they came for.
  • Not Quite Dead: Even though Haury and Triska were crushed by the family wagon(with Triska possibly having her spine broken by Miranda) and Abyset getting skewered by Kieri their body's are nowhere to be found,only bloody footprints.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Haury and Triska have these while Abyset has Icy Blue Eyes.
  • Wicked Weasel: Triska certainly has the looks and personality.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Abyset attempts to kill Miranda and when that fails, he chases after Rhea (who was protecting Miranda's children) and brutalizes her. In fact, it seems the only people he's willing to fight and kill are defenseless women and children who are weaker than him.
  • Would Hurt a Child: They planed to kill the Sinclair family including Sammy and Florina, a 12 year old and newborn respectively.
  • Wolverine Claws: Triska can extend long sharp claws from her fingertips note  that can withstand the blade of a cutlass.

A female wind demon collecting angels for the Gathering who is in a relationship with a fire demon named Nikkei.
  • Ascended Extra: She and Nikkei first appeared in a demon height chart, and Chu has expressed interest in adding the other two demons as well.
  • Blow You Away: When Buwaro and Rhea inadvertently stop her from catching an angel, She angrily blasts them away with a mini-cyclone.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She is very close to her girlfriend Nikkei learning to speak sign language, acting as her interpreter and passionately making out with her.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Has only one eye but can beat an experienced angel warrior in one-on-one combat and (along with Nikkei) fight a seraph for a day on end until they all collapsed from exhaustion.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Her feelings to Azurai and Lazuli's bickering.
  • Worthy Opponent: They respect Verammi for being able to fight them off enough to let her join them.

A deaf fire demon who is Hakka's girlfriend.
  • Ascended Extra: Like Hakka she started in a height chart before being added to the comic proper.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She may take amusement in tormenting and humiliating captives but is quite close to Hakka.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Like most fire demons she has a rotten temper as a bottle accidentally hitting her in the head is enough to put her on the warpath.
  • Handicapped Badass: She's deaf and speaks in sign language but is qualified enough to be apart of hell's army and can fight an angel seraph with the help of her girlfriend.
  • Kick the Dog: Her first comic appearance has her throw a dart at one of the angels they have captive and shortly after reveal Kinako's relationship with Sahne and Lakritz causing the demons to laugh at them and the angels to stare angrily at them.
  • Playing with Fire: She is a fire demon after all.
  • The Silent Bob: Justified, since she's deaf and speaks mostly in sign language.
  • Smelly Skunk: She resembles a red and yellow bipedal skunk (especially with her long bushy tail), but being a fire demon it's her front end you gotta worry about.

A dragon-like fire demon originally partnered with Talus and Lazuli before he was forced to retreat with Sanjulo and Kazai in pursuit. He finally appeared in the comic proper during the St.Curtis arc.
  • Asshole Victim: His death at Berserk Lazuli's hands is not meant to be mourned. Hell, the artist made his death somewhat funny.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First appeared as a silhouette in Kieri's flashback nine years earlier.
  • Fantastic Racism: Typical for a demon he hates Angels, however he seemed to take it further than his cohorts as he glares at Verammi while the other demons at least tolerant her and becomes visibly angry when Buwaro fails to justify his relationship with Kieri.
  • Hate Sink: Dakos is an outright nasty piece of work, even for a demon. Absolutely NONE of his actions are played for laughs, and he lacks the humorous quirks and camaraderie the rest of Iratu's army has. He easily makes Azurai, one of the worst of the demons up to that point, look like a saint in comparison.
  • Hypocrite: He forbids Lazuli from killing Kieri but after he is kicked off the wagon and has his horn broken he tries to kill the remaining angels in a rage and when Cyran tries to talk him down, he attacks them.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Meets his end from berserk Lazuli skewering him through the neck and chest with giant icicles.
  • Irony: He is an ableist and views demons that have disabilities with distain but he also thinks Sakido was one of hell's best warriors but as the readers know Sakido herself had crippled wings that were only remedied by the sun pendant she wore under her coat.
  • I Work Alone: He dislikes working in teams (despite being the leader of his) and views it as unnatural for demons to work in groups.
  • Had to Be Sharp: Older than most demons around him and due to their usual disposition most demons are killed by another one before they get old, so he would have to be pretty skilled just to still be alive.
  • Kick the Dog: Gets an absolutely brutal one by emotionally tormenting and taunting a helpless angel mother by saying he'll release her son if she can sing, knowing the magic braces she's wearing keep her from talking.
  • Kick The Son Of A Bitch: Is the most Politically Incorrect Villain out of all of the characters, tortured a helpless angel by threatening to mutilate her son if she doesn't sing for him, knowing she can't, and meets his end at the hands of Lazuli just after slicing up one of his own teammates.
  • Lack of Empathy: Even more so than other demons, he terrorizes an angel child in front of his helpless family for laughs, blames Talus's death on Lazuli for not following his orders and lacks the camaraderie the other demons show to each other.
  • Old Soldier: Even though he doesn't look it note  he has fought in the great war and is referred to as "old timer".
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He calls the younger demons a "generation of cripples". One reader complained about the use of the word "cripple", due to it being a slur in some places, and the author explained that offensiveness was intentional.
    • He also calls Iratu an "invalid" due to his stunted growth.
  • No Name Given: He has yet to be named in the comic though it can be found in the Slightly Damned tumblr page.
    • He's eventually named on page 789.
  • The Starscream: Offhandedly mentions to Lazuli that he should be General, if he only had Iratu's Moon Pendant. Lazuli tells him to not even consider it, because Tsavo and Azurai are actually loyal to Iratu, and would tear Dakos to shreds he tried to take it.
  • Tail Slap: Uses his tail to slam the unconscious Buwaro into a wall.
  • When I Was Your Age...: He dislikes Iratu's use of tactical thinking and prefers the old fashioned demonic way of doing things as well as referring to the younger demons as a "generation of cripples".

A raven-like wind demon who ends up joining the survivors.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Word of God states that Cyran is non-binary and they are referred to with gender neutral pronouns.
  • Creepy Crows: Averted. Despite resembling a large humanoid crow with a serrated beak they are actually one of the least cruel demons.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: They mock Buwaro's attempts to reconcile with Kieri as futile and is generally antagonistic to him but they were willing to stand up to an enraged Dakos and even tried to protect the angels from the berserk Buwaro (unaware he had no intention to harm them). Earlier it's also implied they found Dakos terrorizing the angel family to be distasteful.
  • Ship Tease: With a currently unnamed female wind angel they are frequently seen with.
  • Shock and Awe: As with all wind demons.


  • Magically Inept Fighter: Are much stronger than humans but they are only capable of learning one (sometimes two) magical spells.
  • No Blood Ties: They lay their eggs in communal nurseries and none are raised not knowing who their biological parents are and vice versa.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: They are only half the height of humans but are much physically stronger and faster than them.
  • Prehensile Tail: They have long tails that can both grab things and even support their bodyweight.
  • Running on All Fours: They can go on all fours when they need to run quickly.

    Ramirez Bloodeyes 
Rhea's best friend, who was there when she died. Hasn't appeared outside of flashbacks.


A Jakkai of unknown origin who seems to be working with the villains. Not much else is known about him. Its been revealed that he seeks to murder the Guardians and steal their powers, as well as to find an artifact he simply calls "The Egg".


  • All-Powerful Bystander: Most of the guardians chose to remain neutral during the great war because they are creations of both Gaia and Syndel.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Their true forms are giant animals but they disguise themselves as mortals to get around more easily.
  • Cosmic Keystone: If one is killed, Medius will gradually fall apart, cause disastrous weather and even throw the seasons out of wack.
  • Elemental Embodiment: They magical beings connected to the four elements.
  • Morphic Resonance: Their mortal disguises all have certain physical features similar with their true animal forms, and even their descendants share some of these qualities.
  • Physical God: They were created to watch and guide the mortals in the other gods' stead.

One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Toski the Rabbit sided with Hell during the Great War. She is responsible for Kieri's curse.
  • Rascally Rabbit: Apparently has no problem taking a human form and stealing from shops, then cursing anyone who tries to stop her.

One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Siara the Lynx took the side of Heaven during the Great War. Apparently Cliff has some connection to her, as his power takes on her form.
  • Playing with Fire: She's one of the three guardians of fire. And judging from what Cliff did, she probably has this power.

One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Meeros the Mortori Bird is an...interesting character, to say the least. He once cursed Cliff with a similar curse to Kieri's.
  • Blow You Away: Has immense power over wind due to his role as a guardian.
  • Clever Crows: Or mortori birds, anyways. They're his symbol/patron animals, and he's very protective of them. They used to be viewed in the standard way; bad luck, omens of death and war, etc., but Meeros put a lot of hard work into his godly PR, so now they are viewed as symbols of love and life.
  • The Gadfly: He's not a bad sort, but he definitely gets a kick out of messing with Cliff. (He also tries it with Buwaro, but Buwaro misses the point.)
  • Gentleman Snarker: Manages to be polite while still throwing sarcastic quips around (mostly aimed at Cliff).
  • Godzilla Threshold: He avoids using his magic but when it becomes clear that he can't beat Moonshade that way he is forced to use it despite the immense collateral damage it causes.

One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, Melli the Fire Bee sided with Heaven during the Great War. Is something of a patron to the city of St. Curtis.
  • Asshole Victim: Let's be honest, no one felt sad for her when she was killed by Moonshade. Especially if she really was responsible for the massive fire in St. Curtis.
  • Bee Afraid: She is a giant fire bee (fictional bee species with bright red colors and makes incredibly spicy honey) and isn't particularly friendly to demons.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Her true form is a giant red bee with a glowing aura.
  • Crappy Carnival: Runs a rigged archery game booth.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Some versions of the St. Curtis legend have her setting the Jakkai's tree on fire to teach the two races a lesson. And she's a bit of a jerk to Buwaro and Kieri.
  • Playing with Fire: As one of the three fire guardians she can do this and may have used it to start the massive fire in St Curtis's history.
  • Willfully Weak: She refuses to use her fire magic in her fight against Moonshade for fear of lighting the city ablaze.

One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, taking the form of a giant snake. Was murdered by Mr. Moonshade before the events of the comic.

One of the twelve Guardians of Medius, for reasons unknown he sided with hell alongside Toski during the great war.

Divine Entities

One of the three great gods, matron of the angels and embodiment of good. Revealed to have been missing for several years.
  • Big Good: How the inhabitants of Medius mostly perceive her.
  • Light Is Good: She wears white clothes and has rainbow colored wings and is revered by medians and angels as a benevolent deity.

The second of the three great gods, creator of the demons and embodiment of evil. Also missing.
  • Ambiguous Situation: It's currently unclear if the angel going by Syndel who is currently leading the demons is, as he claims, the god incarnated in angel form thanks to Death, or just an unusually powerful angel doing a God Guise in his quest for power. He can use every kind of magic except, oddly enough, dark magic, and is apparently unkillable... Though if Dakos's words are anything to go by there are at least some demons who don't believe it's actually him.
  • Dark Is Evil: He is purple with black markings and a skull-like face, he also started the great war because he was never given worship by the medians.
    • The angel that may-or-may-not be him wears a suit of black armor.
  • Driven by Envy: Was definitely not happy to find out that Gaia got most of the credit for creating Medius. This led to the Great War.
  • God of Chaos: Sometimes referred to as the god of chaos.
  • Light Is Not Good: While his apperance is definitely monstrous and he's mostly coloured purple and black, his wings and spikes have rainbow colors.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Artwork indicates that he has red sclera with white irses and the angel claiming to be him has a pair of unusually red eyes.
  • Why Won't You Die?: If the Fallen Angel currently leading Hell truly is him, then according to Sahne and Lakritz the Demons tried for days or even weeks to kill him. Not only did nothing they do work, he seemed to be enjoying it.

The guide of souls to the afterlife, he's the only one of the three great gods who has appeared so far.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: Despite his dark dragon-like appearance, he's fairly friendly, so this seems to be in effect. Of course, that's because it's not really Death...
  • Judgement of the Dead: He resides in Purgatory and oversees judgment of the souls of dead Medians. Those whose good deeds outweigh their evil go to Heaven, while those whose good and evil even out go to Purgatory with him.
  • Have You Seen My God?: He's one of the three great gods, while the other two have gone missing. He went looking for the other two and promptly disappeared as well.
  • Promotion to Parent: He's essentially Buwaro's caretaker at the beginning of the comic, or the closest thing to one that Buwaro has, other than Sakido. Doubly so because he actually is Buwaro's adoptive father in disguise.

A servant of Death, this fearsome dog guards the gates to Hell. Despite traditionally being three-headed, it apparently is missing the middle head currently. Later revealed the middle head, known as "Blue", is part of Darius's disguise as Death.
  • Body Horror: Has a massive partially stitched gapping wound where his middle head used to be.
  • Dog Stereotype: Each of his three heads embody a different canine archetype: his left head is very bulldog-like and is Dumb Muscle, the right head somewhat resembles a Doberman or Rottweiler and is very intelligent but can be vicious when required, and his former middle head has a more beagle appearance, with a wide muzzle and big floppy ears and is the nicest and most emotional.
  • Gate Guardian: Much like his mythological namesake who guarded the gates of the underworld, he guards the gates of hell and prevents unintended entry.
  • It's Personal: His left and right heads are implied to be holding a grudge against Darius for getting his other head sliced off.
  • Multiple Head Case: Each head has a distinct personality. The red one is mostly silent and the Straight Man, while the green head seems to be more Hot-Blooded. The blue head is friendly yet somewhat naive.

A servant of Death and counterpart to Cerberus, this large angel-like warrior guards heaven's gates, he has yet to appear in person though.
  • Badasses Wear Bandanas: He wears a headband and is a demigod who protects heaven.
  • BFS: The stained glass windows in the temple indicates that he wields a large, wide sword.
  • Gate Guardian: Just like his "brother" Cerberus, only he protects the gate of heaven instead.

Other Characters

Buwaro's beloved pet rock. Supposedly a girl.
  • Imaginary Friend: Until Rhea showed up, was pretty much Buwaro's only friend.
  • Killed Off for Real: As "killed" as a rock can get, anyway. During the demon attack on St. Curtis, Buwaro uses Thadius to try and defend himself from Lazuli, who proceeds to crush her to pieces.
  • Meaningful Name: The name sounds similar to Darius.
  • Put on a Bus: Done intentionally, as Buwaro makes real friends and gradually forgets about Thadius.

A somewhat lecherous fairy who happens to be Cliff's best friend and traveling companion.
  • The Casanova: Goes to great lengths to hook up with female fairies.
  • Fairy Companion: Cliff's.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Cliff. They go back and forth, repeatedly tormenting each other. However, when they fight together...
  • You No Take Candle: Has a mild case of this, due to poor human language skills (which are notably better than those of most fairies).

The enchanted skull of the middle head of Cerberus who assists Darius in his disguise.
